dailymile is a social experience for active people and a community and it's important to keep that in mind when you're building your app. Before you start using our API, we have a few guidelines that we'd like you to follow. You can check out our Showcase to find some great apps built using our API.
You may use the dailymile brand and logo, but not in ways that make users think that we built or endorse your app. Please read our Branding Guidelines if you'd like to use our brand and download our assets.
Commercial apps: If you're building an application that derives revenue from its use of the dailymile API, please contact us. We reserve the right to ensure it doesn't harm our business interests.
- Use the API responsibly. Please cache data when possible and handle errors appropriately.
- Make it easy to include the
messagefield with workouts shared to dailymile. Encourage social interaction over bot-like behavior.
- Validate workout data on the client before posting. A mis-typed 1,000 mile workout can ruin a challenge and disrupt leaderboards.
- Make a great user experience that integrates dailymile in a valuable and expected way. Delight people.
- Don't use dailymile anywhere in the name of your application, URL or branding except as allowed by our Branding Guidelines.
- Don't replicate the core user experience of dailymile.com.
- Don't replicate premium features of dailymile.com available only to PRO members.
- Don't store users username and password or any other user data without their express consent (using the API or crawling).
- Don't abuse the API with too many requests. If you're unsure, ask us.
Applications that don't follow the guidelines above may be in violation of our Terms of Service and may have their API access revoked. We reserve the right to modify these terms and guidelines from time to time without notice.
You may use the dailymile brand and logo, but not in ways that make users think that we built or endorse your app. You shouldn't use the word dailymile anywhere in the name of your application, the URL, or in any trademark. Users should never be confused as to whether they're using your product or ours. You can of course use language to indicate that the app is build using the dailymile API.
