Thank you for your interest in joining the Segment Platform! Below is an overview of the partner onboarding process and the Segment Platform Partner Agreement.
Partners agree to accept the below Segment Platform Partner Agreement, which includes the following commitments:
Integrate your product with Segment through the Segment API.
Implement, test and maintain your integration as set forth in the Segment Developer Documentation.
Submit and demonstrate your successful integration to the Segment API team. This may include running a successful beta test with Segment customers.
Create and maintain reasonable end user documentation.
Notify customers after completion of the integration and promote your integration in accordance with the Segment Co-Marketing Guidelines.
Segment reserves the right to accept or reject any organization or individual from becoming a Segment Integration Partner. Segment also reserves the right to terminate its relationship with any existing Segment Integration Partner.
Duration and Termination
Once entered into, the Agreement shall remain in effect until suspended or terminated by either party. Partner may terminate the Agreement at any time by giving Segment thirty days’ notice in advance of such termination.
Platform Partner Agreement
Segment.io, Inc. (“Segment”, “we”, “our”, or “us”) maintains a platform that enables our customers (“Customers”) to collect and store information about their websites, applications and services, as well as tools and services running on those websites, applications and services, and to share that data with third party service providers, such as analytics service providers (our platform is referred to in this Agreement as “our Service” or the “Segment Service”). The Segment Service further allows Customers to collect, store and share data from and between their various third party service providers.
This is a legal agreement (the “Agreement”) between you (“Partner,” “you” or “your’) and Segment stating the terms that govern the integration of your application or service (“your Service” or the “Partner Service”) with the Segment Service and your subsequent interchange of data with the Segment Service. Please read this Agreement carefully before pressing the “I accept” button or using the Segment Service or Materials (defined below). By pressing “I accept,” or using the Segment Service or Materials, you are agreeing to be bound by this Agreement.
If you do not agree to this Agreement, press “cancel” and cease registering or submitting your **application**, and accessing or using any Segment Materials, as you will be unable to integrate your Service with ours, and you may not use the Segment Service or Materials.
If you enter into this Agreement on behalf of a company or other entity, then (i) “you” includes you and that entity, and (ii) you represent and warrant that you are an authorized representative of the entity with the authority to bind the entity to this Agreement, and that you agree to this Agreement on the entity’s behalf.
This Agreement will enable you to integrate your Service with the Segment Service to allow Customers to send and/or receive data (“Customer Data”) between your Service and ours at their direction. This Agreement includes a number of marketing, technical and legal rules and restrictions that we require you to agree with and implement in order to access or use our application programming interface(s) (“API(s)” or the “Segment API(s)”). The Segment API’s, together with any sample code, software, testing tools, documentation, and other materials made available by Segment to you are referred to collectively as the “Segment Materials.” This Agreement defines how you can use the Segment Materials to develop an integration for Customers between your Service and the Segment Service (the “Integration”).
This Agreement helps us to maintain and improve the Segment Service as well as the overall Customer experience and our ecosystem. For ease of use, we have broken the Agreement up into a number of modules including the “Developer Documentation” that specifies how to build your Integration and work with the Segment Service, and “Co-Marketing Guidelines” that describe how we cooperate in marketing.
Please note that if you use Segment products and services under a separate agreement with Segment (e.g. if you are also a “Customer”), then the terms of those products and services, and not this Agreement, apply to you for such uses of Segment products and services.
1. Building Your Integration
You must build, test and maintain your Integration in accordance with the then-current SegmentDeveloper Documentation. Once you have completed your Integration, you must fully test it prior to submitting your application to Segment for approval (see below for details). Only those Integrations approved in writing by Segment may be commercially released.
While we try to support as many quality Integrations and services as possible, Segment reserves the right to accept or reject your Integration at its discretion.
We want Customers to have the best possible experience using your Integration. You must implement, support and maintain your Integration such that the Customer has the same experience as if using your native integration, unless otherwise agreed by the parties. As part of this, you shall provide reasonably complete and current documentation for you Integration (including any updates). You must update and test your Integration prior to the public launch of any new or updated Partner Service.
Your Integration and Service are your responsibility! You must thoroughly test your Integration (including any changes or new functionality) prior to implementing it in a production environment or submitting it to Segment for review. We have the right to review and test your Integration at any time. You must reasonably cooperate with any such testing (including providing Segment with a test account, documentation and sample data). In addition, we may require you to implement a beta version of your Integration with a few select Customers. However, Segment has no obligation to test any integration, and, while we may provide test tools, review results and even conduct our own testing, our tests are not a certification or guarantee of your functionality. By investigating, reviewing or approving any Integration or Partner Service, Segment is not making any representation or warranty regarding your Integration or Service, or its compliance with this Agreement, and you are still fully responsible for full and complete compliance with this Agreement. You hereby permit Segment to use your Service and Integration (and any related materials, information or documentation that you provide) as required to test, evaluate and monitor your Service and Integration in connection with this Agreement, and to deliver the Segment Service via your Integration, as set forth in this Agreement.
3. Support and Responsiveness
You must provide support for your Integration no less than you support your own Service. When Customers or questions about the Integration or run into any bugs, we will typically direct them to you. You agree to respond to all Customer support requests in a timely manner and to promptly correct any errors in your Integration. You must also promptly respond to Segment inquiries regarding your Integration and Service. We value an active and engaged community. If you go silent we may suspend or terminate your integration with Segment.
4. Submission and Account
In order to submit your Integration to interoperate with the Segment Service, we may require you to sign up for a Segment Integration account and/or a self service license to the Segment Service. Segment may withhold approval of your account for any reason. As part of testing and submitting your Integration, you may be required to provide certain information (e.g., use cases, contact information, product or service description, forecasting, etc.). You agree to update your information so that it is always complete and accurate. You must keep track of any account information that we provide you. It’s your responsibility to keep your password, credentials, and accounts secure, and you are responsible for any misuse of your account. You should notify Segment immediately if any actual or suspected unauthorized use of your Segment account, Segment Materials, or the Segment Service (please click: contact us).
You and Segment shall use commercially reasonable efforts to implement mutually agreed marketing activities, including those set forth in our then-current Co-Marketing Guidelines. Each party shall own all right, title and interest (including without limitation all intellectual property rights) to trade names, trademarks, service marks, logos and domain names it secures from time to time (“Brand Features“). While your Integration is being made available to Customers by Segment: (i) Segment shall include the Partner Brand Features on the Segment Partner integrations web page and on certain related marketing materials; (ii) you shall include Segment Brand Features in relevant marketing materials such as your application user interface, integration documentation, and partner web pages, and shall notify all of your customers of the availability of the Segment Integration. All use of the Segment Brand Features shall be subject to the Partner Co-Marketing Guidelines, including Segment’s then-current branding and usage guidelines, and Segment reserves the right to terminate or limit your use of the Segment Brand Features upon notice.
Segment hereby grants to you a limited, revocable, non-transferable, nonsublicenseable, nonexclusive license during the term of this Agreement to display Segment’s Brand Features for the purpose of promoting or advertising your Integration and your use of the Segment Service in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. In the course of promoting, marketing, or demonstrating the Segment Service, the Integration and your Service, Segment may produce, distribute and use depictions, screenshots, video, or other content from your Service, and may use your Brand Features. You hereby grant Segment all necessary rights for these purposes.
Each party retains all right, title and interest in and to its Brand Features, and all goodwill associated with the use of such Brand Features shall inure to the benefit of their owner.
Publicity. You shall not make any statement regarding your Integration or use of the Segment Service that suggests sponsorship or endorsement by Segment without Segment’s prior written approval.
6. Code of Conduct

a. Not violate any applicable laws, rules or regulations.
b. Have a valid Customer Agreement in place allowing you to use your Service and Integration to process and exchange data with the Segment Service as contemplated under this Agreement. You shall only provide Segment with data with the permission of your customer.
c. Play nice! You must not misrepresent or hide your or your Service’s nature or identity or the capabilities of your Integration. You must similarly not misrepresent (expressly or by omission) or hide the nature of our Service.
d. Not interfere with, disrupt, damage, harm, or access in an unauthorized manner the hardware, software, networks, data, or other properties or services of Segment or any third party including, but not limited to, or any other partner, Platform, or other Customers.

f. Not infringe, misappropriate or violate the intellectual property or privacy rights of others.
i. Use no less than industry standard security measures with respect to your access and use of the Segment Service.

l. Respect all identifiers, instructions and restrictions included in any Customer Data, including any “do not track” or “opt out” settings.
m. Follow the Segment Developer Documentation when providing or receiving any data to or from Segment.
You shall not assist, authorize or permit any third party to violate the Code of Conduct.
Monitoring. Segment may access and monitor the use of the Segment Service, your Integration, and the use of the API and other Segment Materials to ensure quality or safety, improve Segment products and services, and to verify your compliance with this Agreement. You consent to, and shall not interfere with such monitoring.
7. Use of Segment Service and Materials
License. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, during the term of this Agreement, Segment grants you a limited, revocable, non-transferable, non-exclusive, right (without the right to sublicense) to access and use the Segment Materials, solely to the extent necessary for you to create and support an Integration. You may access and use the Segment Service, API and other Segment Materials only as expressly permitted by the means described in the documentation and instructions that Segment provides.
Updates. We reserve the right to add or remove functions or features, or modify or update the Segment Service and Materials at any time, for any reason, with or without notice to you. However, for changes that materially affect your Integration, we will try to provide you with at least thirty (30) days’ notice (by means of the e-mail address that you provided when registering, or by other means we deem will reasonably reach you). We do not guarantee that your Integration will function with any future or modified versions of the Segment Service. If we modify the Segment Service, you agree to promptly make changes to your Integration to ensure continued service for Customers.
8. Ownership and License
The Segment Materials and Segment Service are proprietary to Segment and its licensors and are protected by intellectual property laws and international treaty provisions. You shall not remove or alter any proprietary notices or marks on the Segment Service or Segment Materials. You shall not reverse engineer, decompile or attempt to extract the source code from the Segment Service or Segment Materials, or any related software, except to the extent that this restriction is expressly prohibited by applicable law and then in such case, solely for the purposes allowed by law, and the information derived shall be maintained in strict confidence. You also shall not sublicense, lease, rent, loan, distribute, sell, transfer or make available the Segment Service or Segment Materials to any third party except as specifically permitted by this Agreement, or as otherwise agreed to in writing by Segment. All Segment Services and Segment Materials are licensed and not sold. Segment reserves all rights not expressly granted in this Agreement.
Open Source Software. Some of the software required by or included with the Segment Materials and Segment Service may be offered under an open source license. Open source software licenses constitute separate written agreements. To the limited extent the open source software license expressly supersedes the Agreement, the open source license instead sets forth your agreement with Segment for the applicable open source software.
Except as you may otherwise agree with Segment in writing, you may terminate this Agreement and withdraw your Integration from the Service at any time upon providing Segment with thirty (30) days’ written notice. Please note that this does not relieve you of any obligations that you may have to Customers or any third parties regarding your Integration or the use of our Service.
Without limiting any other right or remedy of Segment hereunder, Segment shall have the right to immediately terminate this Agreement and/or suspend, limit, condition or terminate access to the Segment Service and/or Segment Materials by you without liability or other obligation to you and without notice. We will generally attempt to give you thirty (30) days’ notice of termination (typically by means of the e-mail address that you provided when you applied to be a Partner, or as we otherwise deem will reasonably reach you), unless we need to take action to prevent a violation of law, or harm to Segment, Customers, or other third parties. You will notify us promptly upon becoming aware of any breach of this Agreement.
Upon any termination or expiration of this Agreement, or the discontinuation of your access to the Segment Service, you must promptly cease all use of the Segment Service, Segment Materials, Segment Confidential Information and Segment Brand Features and delete all copies thereof in your possession. You acknowledge that you may be terminated or suspended at any time, and that Segment shall not be liable for any such termination or suspension, including without limitation any liability for incidental or consequential damage or any compensation for loss of prospective profits, anticipated sales or goodwill. You waive any right you may have to receive any compensation or reparations on termination or suspension of this Agreement or your access to the Segment Service.
Survival. Upon any termination or expiration of this Agreement, those Agreement that by their nature are intended to continue indefinitely shall continue to apply, including but not limited to: Sections 6, and 8 through 17.
10. Confidential Information
Segment Confidential Information. Our communications to you in connection with this Agreement and the Segment Service and Materials may contain Segment confidential information (“Segment Confidential Information”). Segment Confidential Information shall include non-public aspects of our Service and product plans and materials or communications disclosed in connection with this Agreement that are marked confidential or that would normally be considered confidential given the circumstances of disclosure or the nature of the information disclosed. You shall not disclose Segment Confidential Information to any third party without Segment’s prior written consent, and shall use such information solely to integrate and work with the Segment Service as set forth in this Agreement. Segment Confidential Information does not include information that you already rightfully knew, that becomes public through no fault of your own, that you independently developed, or that was rightfully given to you by a third party (provided that these exclusions do not apply to any personally identifying information). You may disclose Segment Confidential Information when compelled to do so by law if you provide us reasonable prior notice, unless a court orders that we not receive notice.
Partner Confidential Information. We encourage you to provide Segment with information related to your Service and business in order to help Segment to better understand your Service and to effectively communicate with Customers and potential customers (e.g. to recommend the best tools to meet Customer requirements). All information that you provide will be considered non-confidential, unless we expressly indicate in writing that we shall treat such information as confidential at the time that you disclose such information (such expressly indicated information is “Partner Confidential Information”). We shall use such Partner Confidential Information solely to assist Segment in providing Segment and Partner Services to Customers and potential Customers. Segment shall not disclose such Partner Confidential Information to any third party without your prior written consent (except our contractors, attorneys and advisors under an obligation of confidentiality), and shall use such Partner Confidential Information solely as set forth in this Agreement. Partner Confidential Information does not include information that Segment already rightfully knew, that becomes public through no fault of Segment, that Segment independently developed, or that was rightfully given to Segment by a third party (provided that these exclusions do not apply to any personally identifying information). Segment may disclose Partner Confidential Information when compelled to do so by law if we provide you with reasonable prior notice, unless a court orders that you not receive notice.
Otherwise, all information that you provide will be considered non-confidential and may be used by Segment for its business purposes and disclosed to third parties, including Customers, potential Customers and Platform providers. Except as expressly indicated above, please do not provide us with any information that you consider confidential.
Subject to the above restrictions on Confidential Information, Segment may share with third-parties information about your status under this Agreement, your Service and Integration to aid such third-parties in their use, discovery and evaluation of service providers, your Service and the Segment Service. We make no representations or warranties, and, to the maximum extent allowed by law, disclaim all liability in connection with any such information that we may provide (especially if such information is based on information that you provided – so make sure the information that you provide is complete, truthful and accurate!)
Segment may use aggregated and anonymized data from the Segment Service to analyze, improve and report on the Segment Service. Segment may also use data from the Segment Service to enforce the terms of this Agreement, to protect the safety of the public or any person, or to prevent or stop any activity we may consider to be, or to pose a risk of being, illegal, unethical, unauthorized or harmful.
For the avoidance of doubt, nothing in this Agreement shall affect either party’s confidentiality obligations to any Customer. Except to the extent specifically referencing this Agreement no terms in any confidentiality or nondisclosure agreement between the parties shall apply to the Partner information provided in connection with this Agreement.
11. WARRANTIES AND DISCLAIMER

17. General Legal Terms
Relationship of the Parties. While this Agreement may refer to you as a “Partner,” that is for convenience only.

This Agreement does not create any third party beneficiary rights.
Severability. If any provision of this Agreement shall be adjudged by any arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary to give effect to the mutual intent of the parties, and so that this Agreement shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and remain enforceable between the parties.
Waiver. No waiver of any term of this Agreement shall constitute a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and either party’s failure to assert any right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
Assignment. You may not assign this Agreement, in whole or in part, without our prior written consent. Provided, however, that you may assign this Agreement in its entirety, without Segment’s consent, in connection with a merger, acquisition, corporate reorganization, or sale of all or substantially all of your assets. Segment may assign this Agreement (and its rights obligations hereunder) without restriction. This Agreement will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the respective successors and assigns of the parties hereto. Any assignment in violation of this Section is null and void and without effect.
Headings. Headings are for organizational purposes only and shall in no way affect the interpretation of this Agreement.
Governing Law. The laws of California, U.S.A., excluding California’s choice of law rules, shall apply to any disputes arising out of or related to this Agreement or the services. The parties agree that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is specifically excluded from application to this Agreement.

The arbitral panel shall determine the rights and obligations of the parties in accordance with the substantive laws of the State of California, USA without regard to any conflicts of law principles. Any procedural issues not resolved by this Agreement or the ICC Rules shall be governed by the laws of the United States.
