4.2. Approvals. Prior to Making Available a Developer App or enabling a Developer App to access any End User Data, Developer must submit the Developer App to Intercom for approval, which Intercom may withhold in its sole discretion. Developer must provide all information requested by Intercom, including, but not limited to, the permissions for End User Data that Developer is requesting for the Developer App and the reasons such permissions are necessary. Intercom’s approval of a Developer App may be indicated by Intercom’s issuing Developer Credentials for the Developer App or through other Intercom communications (“Approval”). Developer acknowledges and agrees that Intercom’s Approval may be for fewer End User Data permissions than Developer requested and Developer Credentials will be specifically limited to the End User Data permissions granted by Intercom.
4.3. Access Credentials.
4.3.1. Developer Credentials. If Intercom Approves a Developer App, Intercom will provide Developer Credentials to Developer to enable the Developer App to interoperate with the Intercom Service.
4.3.2. Access Tokens. Developer must obtain an Access Token for each End User before the Developer App accesses any of that End User’s End User Data. Intercom will provide an Access Token to Developer upon an End User’s authorization of a Developer App to access End User Data via the Intercom User Connect Flow. Except for such Access Tokens, Developer will not collect, request or require that End Users provide any login credentials for the Intercom Service (including name, email address or password) or copy, use or store any Intercom login credentials.
4.3.3. Access Credential Restrictions. Developer must keep all Access Credentials confidential. Developer must not: (a) sell, share, disclose, transfer, or sublicense Access Credentials to any third party; (b) attempt to circumvent any limitations associated with Access Credentials (e.g., call limits or limits on End User Data permissions); or (c) use Developer Credentials with any Developer App other than the Developer App for which Intercom issued such Developer Credentials. Developer is responsible for all activities that occur using its Developer Credentials and for any unauthorized use or disclosure of Access Tokens stored by Developer or a Developer App.
4.4. Security. Developer will: (a) use industry best-practice information security policies and processes (including technical, administrative and physical safeguards) that prevent loss, theft, damage or unauthorized access to or disclosure of the any End User Data, Access Credentials, the Intercom Developer Platform or Developer Apps; (b) promptly report to Intercom any known or suspected security breach involving any of the foregoing (but in any event within seventy-two (72) hours of becoming aware of such occurrence), remediate such breach and provide such other assistance reasonably requested by Intercom to minimize the impact of such breach on End Users and Intercom; and (c) prior to issuing any public statements or responding to third-party inquiries regarding such breach, coordinate a response with Intercom in good faith, unless prohibited by Laws.
4.5. Ongoing Review by Intercom. Notwithstanding Intercom’s prior Approval of a Developer App, Intercom reserves the right to review Developer Apps and Developer’s security policies and processes for compliance with this Agreement at any time. In connection with such review, Developer agrees to provide free access to Developer Apps, copies of such policies and any additional information relating to Developer Apps upon Intercom’s reasonable request. Upon such review, if Intercom determines that Developer Apps or such policies are not compliant with this Agreement, Intercom may revoke Developer’s Access Credentials in Intercom’s sole discretion and Developer agrees to immediately cease providing the Developer App and enabling access to the Intercom Service until otherwise notified by Intercom.
4.6. Private Developer Apps. If Developer wishes to create a Developer App for its own internal use that only connects to Developer’s account on the Intercom Service and not to the account of any other End User (“Private Developer App”), Developer may do so without Approval, subject to its compliance with this Agreement and its Intercom Customer Agreement. Developer may generate its own Access Token for a Private Developer App using the Intercom Service dashboard.
5.1. Intercom App Store.

Intercom’s right to Make Available such Developer Apps includes the right to provide demonstrations of such Developer Apps to End Users and to use and reference such Developer Apps in connection with Intercom’s marketing and promotion of the Intercom Service, Intercom Developer Platform, and Intercom App Store. Upon Intercom’s request, Developer will provide Intercom with free access to an account for Developer Apps in connection with the foregoing. Intercom is free to use any descriptions of Developer Apps (including links to the applicable Developer End User Agreements and Developer’s website pages where it describes Developer Apps) and Developer Marks provided to Intercom in connection with Making Available such Developer Apps. Developer may also apply to have Intercom Make Available Developer’s Approved Developer Apps in the Intercom App Store, which application Intercom may accept or reject in its sole discretion.
5.1.2. No Expectation. For avoidance of doubt, Intercom does not have any duty or obligation, express or implied, to Make Available any Developer Apps and Developer has no expectation of any minimum distribution or usage.
5.1.3. Editorial Control. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, Developer acknowledges and agrees that Intercom has sole editorial control of the Intercom App Store and may choose the placement and location of Developer Apps and size and prominence of Developer Marks.

Intercom reserves the right to remove the Developer Apps, Developer Marks and Developer Apps descriptions from the Intercom App Store at any time in its sole discretion without notice to Developer.
5.1.4. Fees. Intercom reserves the right to charge fees for Making Available Developer Apps in the Intercom App Store, subject to Section 17 (Changes to this Agreement).

Any use by Developer of Intercom Marks in connection with the foregoing must be in accordance with Section 8.1 (Use of Intercom Marks) below.
6.1. End User Data.
6.1.1. In General. Developer agrees to access End User Data only if Developer has received Access Credentials as set forth in Section 4.3 (Access Credentials) above. Developer will ensure that all End User Data is collected, processed, transmitted, maintained and used (collectively, “Processed”) in accordance with: (a) the Developer End User Agreements; and (b) all Laws. The Developer End User Agreements must clearly describe what End User Data Developer is Processing, how Developer Processes such End User Data and how Developer shares End User Data. The Developer End User Agreements must also indicate that Developer, not Intercom, is responsible and liable for the privacy, security and integrity of any End User Data Processed by Developer.
6.1.2. Termination of Access. Developer agrees that it will permit an End User to terminate the Processing of its End User Data by Developer Apps at any time upon such End User’s request. Developer acknowledges and agrees that an End User may revoke an Access Token at any time via its Intercom account.

Intercom may monitor and collect certain aggregate data and information regarding Developer’s use of the Intercom Developer Platform that is non-personally identifiable with respect to Developer, including data about Developer’s API requests, Developer Apps (including information identifying Developer Apps or their source) or actions taken within the Intercom Service and the Intercom End User accounts that are accessed by Developer Apps (“Usage Data”).

Developer represents and warrants that: (a) Developer will have full power and authority to enter into and perform its obligations under this Agreement and to exploit the Developer Apps without violating any other agreement; (b) the Developer Apps and their use or Intercom’s exercise of any of the licenses granted hereunder will not violate any third-party rights (including intellectual property rights and rights of privacy or publicity) or any Laws; (c) the Developer Apps will comply with all applicable Intercom Policies; (d) all information Developer provides to Intercom (including any descriptions of the Developer Apps) will be true, accurate and complete; and (e) Developer will not interfere with Intercom’s business practices or the way in which it offers or provides the Intercom Service.
7.3. Indemnification. Developer will indemnify, defend (at Intercom’s request) and hold harmless Intercom and its affiliates and their respective directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors and licensees from and against any claims, losses, costs, expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees), damages or liabilities arising from or relating to: (a) Developer Apps; (b) Developer’s relationships or interactions with End Users, including Developer End User Agreements and provision of the Developer Service; (c) Developer’s breach or alleged breach of this Agreement (including, but not limited to, breach of Sections 4.4 (Security) or 6.1 (End User Data)); or (d) Developer Marks. Intercom may at its own expense participate in the defense and settlement of any claim with its own counsel, and Developer may not settle a claim without Intercom’s prior written consent (not to be unreasonably withheld).
8.1. Use of Intercom Marks. Subject to this Agreement, Intercom grants Developer a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable license to use the Intercom Marks solely for the purposes of Making Available its own Approved Developer Apps, in compliance with the Brand Guidelines. All goodwill arising out of use of the Intercom Marks will inure to the benefit of Intercom. Except as expressly licensed under this Agreement, Intercom retains all right, title and interest in and to the Intercom Marks, including all intellectual property rights. Intercom reserves the right to review Developer’s use of Intercom Marks and Developer agrees to cease use of Intercom Marks upon Intercom’s request (in Intercom’s sole discretion).
8.2. Use of Developer Marks. Intercom may (but is not obligated to) use Developer Marks to identify Developer as a developer and to promote Developer Apps. Subject to this Agreement, Developer grants to Intercom a non-exclusive, non-transferable right to use the Developer Marks and any descriptions that Developer publishes about the Developer Apps for the purposes described above (including in Section 5.1.1 (Listing)) and any additional purposes approved by Developer, in compliance with any Developer trademark usage guidelines provided by Developer to Intercom. All goodwill arising out of use of the Developer Marks will inure to the benefit of Developer. Except as expressly licensed under this Agreement, Developer retains all right, title and interest in and to the Developer Marks, including all intellectual property rights.
9.1. Intercom. Developer agrees that Intercom or its suppliers retain all right, title and interest (including all patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret and other intellectual property rights) in and to the Intercom Developer Platform, Intercom Service and any and all related and underlying technology and documentation; and any derivative works, modifications or improvements of any of the foregoing, including as may incorporate Feedback (collectively, “Intercom Technology”). Except for the express license rights set forth in this Agreement, no right, title or interest in any Intercom Technology is granted to Developer. Developer, from time-to-time, may submit comments, questions, suggestions or other feedback relating to Intercom’s products and services to Intercom (“Feedback”). Intercom may freely use or exploit Feedback in connection with any of its products or services.
9.2. Developer. Developer retains all of its right, title and interest (including all patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret and other intellectual property rights) in and to the Developer Service and Developer Apps (excluding to the extent incorporating or reflecting any Intercom Technology). Developer hereby grants Intercom a non-exclusive, royalty-free, worldwide right and license to Make Available Developer Apps on the Intercom App Store, including the right to copy, host, distribute, publicly perform and display and sublicense any software code of Developer incorporated therein, under all applicable intellectual property rights of Developer. Except for the express license rights set forth in this Agreement, no right, title or interest in any Developer Apps are granted to Intercom.
Intercom may disclose to Developer information relating to Intercom’s business and technology, including, without limitation, the Intercom Technology, Intercom Policies, information relating to business opportunities, marketing plans or product plans or any other information marked as confidential or proprietary or that Developer should reasonably understand to be confidential or proprietary under the circumstances (“Confidential Information”). Confidential Information also includes the terms of this Agreement. Except as authorized herein, Developer will (i) hold in confidence and not disclose any Confidential Information to third parties and (ii) not use Confidential Information for any purpose other than fulfilling its obligations and exercising its rights under this Agreement. Developer may disclose Confidential Information to its employees, agents, contractors and other representatives having a need to know, provided that such representatives are bound to confidentiality obligations no less protective of Intercom than this Section and that Developer remains responsible for compliance by any such representative with the terms of this Section. Developer acknowledges that disclosure of Confidential Information would cause substantial harm for which damages alone would not be a sufficient remedy, and therefore that upon any such disclosure by Developer, Intercom will be entitled to seek appropriate equitable relief in addition to whatever other remedies it might have at law.
Intercom works with many developers and nothing in this Agreement limits Intercom’s right to develop or acquire, or to permit others to develop or acquire, any products, technology or services, even if they are similar to or compete with the Developer Apps.
