16.4 The use of the API must be reasonable (‘fair use policy’). Use will in any case be considered to be excessive if Subscriber use more recommendations than is allowed based on the Contract. In this case, the use of these recommendations will be billed separately by Olyslager. In urgent cases, Olyslager may intervene the use of the API immediately (without warning). In addition, Olyslager may temporarily limit or discontinue the use of the API in the event of maintenance, malfunctions or abuse. If Subscriber exceeds the normal use of the API, Olyslager shall not be liable if the API is no longer accessible or no longer operates properly. Further, Olyslager is entitled to limit or block the access to the API.
16.5 In case the Subscriber makes a mistake during the implementation process, scrapes any Olyslager Product or lacks implementing security measures which results in an excessive use of the API, the Subscriber will bear all related costs. The Subscriber is responsible for the reasonable use of the API and the related security measures.
