BY SIGNING A SEPARATE AGREEMENT WITH CONTENTFUL REFERENCING THIS AGREEMENT), YOU AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT.
If you agree to this Agreement on behalf of your company, you represent that you are authorized to accept this Agreement on behalf of your company, and all references to “you” or “Developer” refer to your company. In each case, when interacting with Contentful, you must ensure that you give us your correct and accurate information and keep such information up to date.
This Agreement is between Contentful (“we” or “us”) and “you” (“your” or “Customer”) the person or entity entering into this Agreement. If you are domiciled outside of North America or have an MSA with Contentful GmbH, Contentful in this Agreement refers to Contentful GmbH. If you are domiciled in North America or have an MSA with Contentful Inc., Contentful in this Agreement refers to Contentful Inc. See section “Notices” below for Contentful contact details.
Contentful may change this Agreement by posting a revised version of this Agreement from time to time. Please check this Agreement periodically for changes. In the event that such modifications materially alter your rights or obligations, Contentful will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify you of the change, such as through the use of a pop-up window in the Contentful Marketplace, or by sending an email to the address you have provided in your account details. Your continued use of the Contentful Resources after the changes become effective constitutes your binding acceptance of such changes.
Capitalized terms not defined in this Agreement are defined in the MSA (as defined below).

“Contentful” means (i) Contentful GmbH if you have an MSA with Contentful GmbH or you are domiciled outside of North America, and (ii) Contentful Inc. if you have an MSA with Contentful Inc. or you are domiciled in North America.
“Contentful Resources” means any or all of the following, or any part thereof, as applicable: (i) the Contentful App Framework, (ii) the Contentful Marketplace, (iii) the Documentation, and (iv) any access tokens or credentials issued in the Contentful Services or otherwise by Contentful.
“Contentful Services” means the Contentful cloud-based content management platform and services as described in more detail in the MSA, including the Web App (user interface to access and use the Contentful Services) and Contentful APIs made available under the MSA.
“Customer Data” means any data, including content (usually referred to as “Customer Content” in the MSA) managed by a Customer in the Contentful Services as well as any personal data accessible via a Developer App or otherwise in connection with Contentful Services or obtained from the Customer.
“Customer” means an end user of the Contentful Services and Developer App(s).
“Developer” means the person or entity entering into this Agreement, as applicable per the preamble.
“Developer App” means web-based, on-demand applications, downloadable software applications, or any integration, interoperability or compatibility with Contentful Services, including between Contentful Services and Developer Services, if any, as further described in the Contentful Marketplace and in the EULA and related documentation made available by the Developer, in either case, that is made available by a Developer to Customers in accordance with this Agreement. “Contentful Developer App” means a Developer App made available by Contentful, as indicated in the applicable Contentful Developer App description in the Contentful Marketplace, as well as Contentful webhook templates.
“Developer Services” means products, services, information, data, content and other materials made available to a Customer by or on behalf of Developer or a third-party via a Developer App. “Third-Party Developer Services” mean Developer Services made available via a Developer App that are not offered by the Developer but a third-party.
“EULA” means the terms, conditions, policies (including related to privacy) and other items applicable to Developer Apps and Developer Services, if any, governing the relationship between a Customer and a Developer, that are made available by the Developer in connection with their offering of Developer Apps.
“Master Subscription Agreement” or “MSA” means the agreement under which you have subscribed to the Contentful Services. The MSA may be between you and Contentful or you and an authorized Contentful partner.
Contentful Marketplace is an online directory for Developer Apps. Subject to Approval, Developer Apps can be made available to Customers via the Contentful Marketplace. Developer Apps may also be offered via Developer’s own resources (such as a landing page on a Developer website) deep linking to the Contentful Web App.
Contentful App Framework is made available by Contentful to Developers for them to build Developer Apps that interoperate with Contentful Services and with Developer Services, if any.
Use of the Developer Apps is subject to a EULA between Developer and Customer and not this Agreement or the MSA. The Developer Services are also subject to a EULA or a direct agreement between a Customer and a third-party provider of Third-Party Developer Services and not this Agreement or the MSA.
Both Contentful Marketplace and Contentful App Framework are subject to this Agreement and not the MSA.
Contentful Services are not subject to this Agreement but an MSA and Contentful Services are not Developer Services.
Subject to this Agreement, we provide Contentful Resources to you. Access to and use of Contentful Resources are subject to you having an existing account in good standing in Contentful Services, and (ii) an account in GitHub to access public repositories, if any.
You are responsible for all use of Contentful Resources in connection with your account. You will use commercially reasonable efforts to prevent unauthorized access to or use of Contentful Resources and your accounts.
Contentful Resources are subject to change. Contentful will not be liable for any impact that changes may have on Developer Apps or use of Developer Apps, Developer Services, Customer Applications or your use of Contentful Resources or Contentful Services.
Currently we offer Contentful Resources and Contentful Developer Apps free of charge. We reserve the right to charge for Contentful Resources and Contentful Developer Apps (or parts of them) in the future and will provide you with a reasonable notice before introducing any charges. Such charges, if any, will apply only for future use after a reasonable notice period. Use of Developer Apps will count towards your use of Contentful Services under your MSA: a Developer App may be counted as a “user” in Contentful Services and the API calls generated and the bandwidth used by the Developer App will count towards your use.
Contentful Resources may be or may become subject to usage limitations such as limits on storage space or number of calls against Contentful APIs. Such limitations will be specified in the Documentation.
Before Developer Apps are made available or in any way access Customer Data, Applications must obtain Approval. Contentful may grant or withhold Approval (or may grant Approval subject to conditions) in its sole discretion. The Documentation will describe in more detail how a Developer App can be submitted for Approval. Approval is not an endorsement or assumption of liability for Developer Apps.
Following initial Approval, Contentful reserves the right to inspect Developer Apps any time with or without notice. Contentful may withdraw an Approval at any time, with or without notice, and for any reason or may make a previously granted Approval subject to conditions. Developer will support Contentful in such inspections upon Contentful’s reasonable request, including by providing access to Developer Apps and to Developer’s security and other applicable policies and any additional information reasonably requested by Contentful relating to Developer Apps or Developer Services, if any.
Withdrawing an Approval means that Contentful will remove such Developer App from the Marketplace and disable (and you must disable) any integration of such Developer App with any Contentful Services. Contentful will have no liability to you for such withdrawal or any consequences from such withdrawal.
Developer Apps that only connect to Developer’s own account in the Contentful Services are not subject to Approval but use of such private Developer Apps is nevertheless subject to your and such Developer Apps’ compliance with this Agreement.
To use any of the Contentful Resources you will need a subscription in good standing to the Contentful Services. As part of that subscription you will have user access credentials to the Contentful Services. User access credentials are required for building a Developer App, to submit a Developer App for Approval and to use a Developer App.
Currently Developer Apps use the Contentful UI Extensions SDK to access Contentful’s APIs. The Contentful UI Extensions SDK is only available to a Developer App while a user is logged in to the Contentful Web App. The Contentful UI Extensions SDK exposes certain API endpoints to the Developer App which reflect a subset of the permissions of the logged-in user. This means that the access level of a Developer App always depends on the access of the logged-in user using the Developer App.
Contentful may issue separate app tokens enabling Developer Apps to act against Contentful’s APIs without a logged-in user in the Contentful Web App. Such app tokens are described in more detail in the Documentation.
Subject to Approval and Developer’s compliance with this Agreement, Contentful may (but does not have the obligation to) list and keep listed Developer Apps in the Contentful Marketplace. Developer grants Contentful the rights and licenses set out in section “Rights, Licenses and Ownership” for these purposes.
Any listing, including any editorial and placement decisions in the Contentful Marketplace, and delisting are at Contentful’s sole discretion.
Developer has the right to list its own Approved Developer Apps on its own website by deep linking to the Contentful Web App. Developer’s use of Contentful’s name and logos in such context must be in accordance with section “Rights, Licenses and Ownership” below.
Subject to your compliance with this Agreement, we grant to you a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable and non-transferable right to use the Contentful Resources to (a) develop and test Developer Apps that integrate with Contentful Services and Developer Services (if any), and (b) subject to Approval, make available Developer Apps and allow Customers to install and use such Developer Apps in connection with Contentful Services.
To the extent that any parts of the Contentful Resources are accompanied with any specific terms (such as open source software terms), such terms shall govern such portion(s) of the Contentful Resources.
Any rights and licenses and other terms and conditions between a Customer and a Developer will be subject to the terms of a EULA between the Customer and the Developer. Such rights and licenses are not subject to this Agreement or the MSA, and Contentful is not a party to any such EULA (except for Contentful Developer Apps).
The below rights and licenses are limited to the extent reasonably necessary for us to provide the Contentful Marketplace and Contentful App Framework, listing your Developer Apps, including hosting your Developer Apps (to the extent and for as long as we offer to host your Developer Apps), and enabling the connection and interaction between the Contentful Services, Developer Apps and Developer Services.
As a Developer you authorize us, and grant the rights and licenses to us, to:
To the extent necessary for the foregoing purposes, upon request you will provide us with a free account, as needed, for Developer Apps and Developer Services. If the Developer Services are Third-Party Developer Services, you may grant the foregoing license or provide an account or access to such Third-Party Developer Services. You will ensure that you are authorized to grant us such a license or an account or access.
Contentful has the right to use any materials related to the Developer Apps and Developer Services made available by the Developer to Contentful. This includes, for example, the EULA, Developer website pages describing Developer Apps and Developer Services, user documentation and the like, or links to the same.
The rights and licenses granted by you to Contentful above include a non-exclusive, worldwide, fully paid-up and royalty-free license to all applicable intellectual property and related rights.
Contentful will have the full, unencumbered right, without any obligation to compensate or reimburse you, to use, incorporate and otherwise fully exercise and exploit any “Feedback” (i.e. suggestions or comments you may provide for enhancements or improvements, new features or functionality or other feedback with respect to Contentful products and services). Such Feedback will not include any Customer Data.
You grant to Contentful a non-exclusive, worldwide, fully paid-up, royalty-free license to, and Contentful may use and refer to, your name, logos, trademarks and the Developer App and the Developer Services in Contentful’s marketing materials and website and in connection with marketing Contentful products and services, including the Contentful Marketplace. Contentful’s use of such items inure solely to your benefit. Contentful will follow your documented instructions when using such items. To the extent that the Developer Services are Third-Party Developer Services, the foregoing shall not apply with respect to such Third-Party Developer Services.
As between the parties to this Agreement and subject to the rights and licenses expressly granted hereunder: (i) Developer retains the exclusive ownership of Developer Apps and Developer Services except for Third-Party Developer Services which remain with the applicable third-party, (ii) Contentful retains exclusive ownership of the Contentful Resources and Contentful Developer Apps, and (iii) each party retains exclusive ownership of its names, logos, brand and other such marks.
