API Key Policies

Some of Burning Man’s Data is accessible only with an API access key. To access this Data, you must register for an API key. Burning Man will issue you unique, revocable security keys, tokens, passwords and/or other credentials (collectively, “Keys”) for accessing certain Data. You may only access the Data with the Keys issued to you, and you may not solicit another developer’s Keys or consumer data. You may not sell, transfer, sublicense or otherwise disclose your Keys to any other party or use them with any other application other than that for which you initially applied. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy and 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. You are responsible for maintaining up-to-date and accurate registration information (including a current email address and other required contact information) with Burning Man. Burning Man may revoke your Keys if Burning Man believes that you are in violation of these terms, or if your registered contact information is not accurate, current and/or you do not respond to communications directed to you. Access to the API and Data may not always be available.  Burning Man may monitor the use of its API and Data to ensure quality and verify your compliance.   You will not interfere with such monitoring.

Keys may also be revoked for any of the following reasons:

  1. Fail to inform end users of any geotag or location data disclosed by an Application.
  2. Republish Data or other Burning Man content not accessed through the API or tools that Burning Man may provide.
  3. You are not at least 13 years of age.
