Wirestock API Terms of Service

By using the Wirestock API (the “API”) you (“you”) accept and agree to be bound by Wirestock’s Terms of Service in addition to the following terms and conditions (the “API TOS”) that shall govern your integration of the API with your Platform.

API License

The API consists of tools and documentation to facilitate your creation of a software application (your "Application") that allows users (“Users”) of the technology platform you make available to such Users (your “Platform,”) to search, license, download and use certain Content subject to the limitations and conditions described below. "Content" includes, but is not limited to images, photographs, vectors, moving images, animations, footage clips, films, videos, audiovisual works, audio recordings, and the associated descriptions, keywords, metadata, titles, FAQs, information about any of the foregoing, and any other content that Wirestock may make available from time to time.

  • Wirestock grants you a limited, non-exclusive, revocable, non-sublicensable and non-transferable license to access and use the API solely to develop, test, display, distribute and execute your Application and to make the Content available to Users of your Platform. You may not monetize your Platform without paying fees in accordance with Section 3 below (“Fees”).
  • In order to obtain logged in functionality you will need one or more unique passwords and/or other credentials (collectively, "Keys") for accessing the API and managing your account. You may only access your account with the Keys issued to you by Wirestock. You may not sell, transfer, sublicense or otherwise disclose your Keys or any of your other account login information. You may not use the API with any platform, website, or application other than the Platform which you disclose to Wirestock as part of your API account creation. You are responsible for maintaining the security of your Keys. You are fully responsible for all activities that occur using your Keys, regardless of whether such activities are undertaken by you or a third party, and regardless of whether the activities are undertaken with or without your authorization. You are responsible for maintaining up-to-date and accurate information (including a current email address and other required contact information) for your account.
  • Any Content previewed by Users through the Platform (“Preview Content”) shall incorporate the Wirestock watermark or your watermark.
  • Wirestock reserves the right to release newer versions of the API from time to time and to require you to use the most recent version.

User License

Users who license an item of Content through the Platform are granted an individual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, non-transferable, right, in perpetuity throughout the world to use such Content in accordance with applicable law, except Users may not sell Content, or otherwise engage in business similar to, or competitive with, Wirestock. The preceding sentence does not prohibit Users from commercializing User’s product(s) which may incorporate Content as part of such product(s). You are responsible for making Users of your Platform aware of their obligations relating to their use of Content, and for their use of Content in accordance with the same.


  • For each item of Content licensed through the API, you shall call the API and communicate the purchase information, including Content ID Number.
  • The fees charged by Wirestock do not include any taxes, duties or other government charges unless expressly specified as such.

Any fees not subject to pre-payment shall be paid 30 days from the date of the applicable invoice.

Appropriate Conduct and Usage Restrictions

You agree that you are responsible for your, and your Users’ conduct with regard to the API and for any consequences thereof. You agree to use the API only for purposes that are legal, proper, and in accordance with these API TOS and any other applicable policies or guidelines provided by Wirestock from time to time. You agree that when using the API, you will not do the following, attempt to do the following, or permit Users or other third parties to do the following:

You hereby grant Wirestock the right to include a link to your Platform into the Wirestock services and websites through a directory or other means.

  • You will not, and will not permit any person, directly or indirectly, to reverse engineer, disassemble, reconstruct, decompile, translate, modify, copy, or, other than as explicitly permitted hereunder, create derivative works of the Wirestock services, including, without limitation, the API, or any aspect or portion thereof, including without limitation, source code and algorithms.


You agree to hold harmless and indemnify Wirestock, licensors and assigns, and its and their respective officers, agents, and employees, advertisers or partners, from and against any claim arising from or in any way related to your use of any Wirestock Property and/or Content, violation of these API TOS, violation of applicable laws and regulations, including, without limitation, data protection and/or privacy laws, or any other actions or claims connected with or related to your Application, Platform, and/or use of Wirestock services, including any liability or expense arising from all claims, losses, damages (actual and consequential), suits, judgments, litigation costs and attorneys' fees, of every kind and nature. In the case of a written claim, Wirestock will provide you with written notice of such claim, suit or action.

Term and Termination

Wirestock may suspend or throttle your access to the API immediately and without notice if Wirestock determines in its reasonable discretion:

  • you are, or are seeking to, hack, disable, or interfere with any component or element, including any security mechanism, of the API;
