18. Some of our Access Products may have an API, allowing the transfer of data (which may include personal data) to and from the Access Product to a third-party product (“Third-Party API”) or a separate Access Product (only where You have a licence to this separate Access Product will the API be turned on). Where an API exists, this will be shown in the Product Fact Sheet, along with the types of personal data permitted for sharing (the “API Data”). Whether a Third-Party API is turned on or off is at your discretion, where it is turned on, you are authorising Us to share the API Data to the third-party and where relevant, receive API Data for input into the Access Product.

Nor are We liable for what happens to the API Data once sent outbound via a Third-Party API (the “Transferred API Data”). The Transferred API Data will be governed by the contract held between you and the relevant third-party.
