Last Updated: June 26, 2020
Welcome to Zabo. Zabo provides an API-driven platform (as modified, the “API”) that enables users (the “End Users”) to aggregate their End User Data (as defined below) from the data sources where your financial account information and data are stored (as modified from time to time, the “Zabo Services”). The website at https://www.zabo.com (the “Website”), the and the various other related services, and other features, functions, software, applications and websites are provided and operated, and are being made available to you and the other Developers by Modular, Inc. d/b/a Zabo (“Zabo”, “we”, “our” or “us”). “End User Data” means an End User’s financial account information and data, including (a) account name, account type and public wallet or deposit addresses, (b) information related to account balances account transactions, in both amounts and in other currency equivalents (e.g. US Dollars), (c) information about account transactions, including amount, date, time, type, location, price, cost basis, fees, quantity, sender and recipient and (d) information about such End User as the account owner, such as publicly provided name.
Please note that these Terms do not apply to the use of the API or the Zabo Services by the End Users of our customers. That use is covered by our End User Terms of Service and other terms.
These Terms contain an Arbitration provision which will, with limited exception, require you to submit disputes you have against Zabo to binding and final arbitration. You will only be permitted to pursue claims against Zabo on an individual basis, not as a plaintiff or class member in any class or representative action or proceeding; and you will only be permitted to seek relief (including monetary, injunctive, and declaratory relief) on an individual basis.
To access and use the Developer Services, you must be at least 18 years of age. BY CLICKING THE “I AGREE” BUTTON, BY DOWNLOADING, INSTALLING OR OTHERWISE ACCESSING OR USING THE DEVELOPER SERVICES, YOU REPRESENT THAT:
YOU HAVE NOT BEEN PREVIOUSLY SUSPENDED OR REMOVED FROM THE DEVELOPER SERVICES;
YOU CONFIRM THAT YOU ARE OF LEGAL AGE TO FORM A BINDING CONTRACT WITH ZABO;
YOU WILL COMPLY WITH THESE TERMS AND ALL APPLICABLE LOCAL, STATE, NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL LAWS, RULES AND REGULATIONS; AND
YOU ARE NOT A COMPETITOR OF ZABO AND DO NOT INTEND TO USE THE DEVELOPER SERVICES FOR REASONS THAT ARE IN COMPETITION WITH ZABO FOR ANY REASON.
To the extent that any modifications to the Terms are not allowed under applicable laws, the prior most recent version of the Terms shall continue to apply.
Accessing and Using the Developer Services.
To access and use the Developer Services, you must register and create an account (the “Developer Account”).
In registering and creating an account, you agree to (i) provide true, accurate, current, and complete information about yourself as prompted during the registration and account creation process (“Registration Data”), and (ii) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data, including credit card information, to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. You are responsible for all activities that occur under your account. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, or Zabo has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, Zabo has the right to suspend or terminate your account and prohibit you from accessing and using the Developer Services. You agree not to create an account using a false identity or information, or on behalf of someone other than yourself. You agree that you shall not have more than one account. You agree not to create an account or to access and use the Developer Services if you have been previously removed by Zabo or if you have been previously banned from accessing and using the Developer Services.
Limited Right to Access and Use. Subject to these Terms, Zabo grants to you, and you accept, a limited, non-assignable, nontransferable, non-sublicensable, and nonexclusive right to access and use the Developer Services to build a Zabo Enabled Application to provide the API and Zabo Services to the End Users in accordance with these Terms. You may terminate your use of the Developer Services at any time.
Security Breach. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of any username, password or other access credential necessary to access the Developer Services. You should take steps to protect the confidentiality of your access credentials. Please notify Zabo immediately if you become aware of any unauthorized activity, disclosures, loss, theft or other unauthorized use of your access credentials or any other breach of security (collectively, a “Security Breach”). You agree to cooperate with Zabo in any investigation in connection with a Security Breach.
Starting Out and Sandbox. After you sign up and create a Developer Account, you will have immediate access to the Zabo sandbox (the “Sandbox”). In the Sandbox, you will have access to a development version of the API. The Sandbox connections are fake, dummy connections that simply mimic real connections and real data. The purpose of the Sandbox is to enable you and your potential Zabo Enabled Application to test the functionality of the API and Zabo Services before connecting to live accounts with real End User Data. You acknowledge that (i) the Sandbox functionality and data may differ from the Zabo Services using Live Connections (as defined below) and (ii) the Sandbox is for testing, non-commercial purposes only and Zabo does not guarantee the accuracy or functionality of the Sandbox. You accept the Sandbox on an “as is” basis without warranties of any kind.
Subscriptions and Live Connections. After you sign up and create a Developer Account, you will be automatically put into the Sandbox subscription plan. When you are ready to start working with real End User Data through the API and the Zabo Services (the “Live Connections”), you will go through an activation process to enable Live Connections for your Developer Account. The number of Live Connections that you will be able to access will depend on the subscription plan that you select (as modified from time to time, the “Subscriptions”). The different Subscriptions also provide different services and features, including different levels of support. The current standard Subscriptions and fees can be found at https://zabo.com/pricing (as modified from time to time, the “Fees”).
Custom Relationship. As the number of your Live Connections grow, or you need more custom services, you may be required to enter into Zabo’s subscription agreement. If you have questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having competent jurisdiction. Any provision of applicable law notwithstanding, the arbitrator will not have authority to award damages, remedies or awards that conflict with these Terms.
Judicial Forum for Disputes. In the event that the agreement to arbitrate under Section 18(b) is found not to apply to you or your claim, you and Zabo agree that any judicial proceeding (other than small claims actions) must be brought solely and exclusively in, and will be subject to the service of process and other applicable procedural rules of, the federal or state courts covering Austin, Texas. Both you and Zabo irrevocably consent to venue and personal jurisdiction there. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Zabo may bring a claim for equitable relief in any court with proper jurisdiction.
Survival. This arbitration agreement will survive the termination of your use of the Developer Services or your relationship with Zabo.
30 Day Right to Opt-Out. You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the arbitration provisions set forth in Section 18(b) above by sending written notice of your decision to opt-out to email@example.com. The notice must be sent to Zabo within thirty (30) days of your use of any of the Developer Services or agreeing to these Terms, otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of those sections. If you opt-out of these arbitration provisions, we also will not be bound by them.
Improperly Filed Claims. All claims you bring against Zabo must be resolved in accordance with this Section 18. All claims filed or brought contrary to this Section 18 shall be considered improperly filed. Should you file a claim contrary to this Section 18, Zabo may recover attorneys’ fees and costs up to $10,000, provided that Zabo has notified you in writing of the improperly filed claim, and you have failed to promptly withdraw the claim.
Prevailing Party. In the event that either party institutes any arbitration, legal suit, action or proceeding against the other party arising out of or relating to these Terms, the Developer Services, the API or the Website, the prevailing party in the suit, action or proceeding shall be entitled to receive in addition to all other damages to which it may be entitled, the costs incurred by such party in conducting the suit, action or proceeding, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses and court costs.

No Agency. No agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer or franchiser-franchisee relationship is intended or created by these Terms.
Geographic Restrictions. Zabo is based in the state of Texas in the United States. Zabo makes no claims that accessing or using or that any of the Developer Services, the provision of the API and Zabo Services to End Users through a Zabo Enabled Application or any of the content, including any User Content, is accessible or appropriate outside of the United States. Accessing or using the Developer Services may not be legal by certain persons or in certain countries. If you access the Developer Services from outside the United States, you do so on your own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws and you agree to waive, and hereby do waive, any legal or equitable rights or remedies you have or may have against Zabo with respect thereto.
Electronic Communications. The communications between you and Zabo use electronic means, whether you visit the Website or the Developer Services or send Zabo e-mails, or whether Zabo posts notices on the Website or the Developer Services or communicates with you via e-mail. For contractual purposes, you (a) consent to receive communications from Zabo in an electronic form; and (b) agree that all terms, conditions, agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that Zabo provides to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications would satisfy if they were in writing.
