The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) offers the public data available within the Envirofacts database in machine readable format via an Application Programming Interface ("API").
All of the content, documentation, code and related materials made available to you through the API are subject to these terms. Access to or use of the API or its content constitutes acceptance to this Agreement.
You may use the EPA Envirofacts RESTful API to develop a service to search, display, analyze, retrieve, view and otherwise 'get' information from EPA data.
All services which utilize or access the API should display the following notice prominently within the application: "This product uses EPA Data but is not endorsed or certified by the EPA".
Modification or False Representation of Content
You may not modify or falsely represent content accessed through the API and still claim the source is EPA.
Right to Limit
Your use of the API may be subject to certain limitations on access, calls, or use as set forth within this Agreement or otherwise provided by EPA. If EPA reasonably believes that your use of the API is impeding on the ability of others to access Envirofacts data, your ability to use the API may be permanently or temporarily blocked. EPA may monitor your use of the API to improve the service or to insure compliance with this Agreement.
If you wish to terminate this Agreement, you may do so by refraining from further use of the API. EPA reserves the right (though not the obligation) to (1) refuse to provide the API to you, if it is EPA's opinion that use violates any EPA policy, or (2) terminate or deny you access to and use of all or part of the API at any time for any other reason in its sole discretion. All provisions of this Agreement which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination including, without limitation, warranty disclaimers, indemnity, and limitations of liability.
EPA reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify or replace this Agreement, in whole or in part. Your continued use of or access to the API following posting of any changes to this Agreement constitutes acceptance of those modified terms. EPA may, in the future, offer new services and/or features through the API. Such new features and/or services shall be subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
Disclaimer of Warranties
The API is provided "as is" and on an "as-available" basis. EPA hereby disclaims all warranties of any kind, express or implied, including without limitation the warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and non-infringement. EPA makes no warranty that the API will be error free or that access thereto will be continuous or uninterrupted.
Limitations on Liability
In no event will EPA be liable under any contract, negligence, strict liability or other legal or equitable theory for:
- any special, incidental, or consequential damages;
- the cost of procurement of substitute products or services;
- interruption of use or loss or corruption of data, that results from your use of the API;
- claims for compensation for services rendered to EPA.
You agree to indemnify and hold harmless EPA, its contractors, employees, agents, and the like from and against any and all claims and expenses including attorney's fees, arising out of your use of the API, including but not limited to violation of this Agreement.
This Agreement constitutes the entire Agreement between EPA and you concerning the subject matter hereof, and may only be modified by the posting of a revised version on this page by EPA..
Any disputes arising out of this Agreement and access to or use of the API shall be governed by federal law.
No Waiver of rights
EPA's failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement shall not constitute waiver of such right or provision.
