Terms of Use for Third Party Applications, Platforms and Aggregators

If you represent a third party digital application that presents audio to listeners, here's what you need to know about including the programs This American Life and Serial:

POINT TO OUR FILES
Your application must point only to the audio files referenced in our RSS feeds, and must not copy these files to be hosted or served by other servers. You may not connect “deep links” to the application or the programs, i.e., create links to a that bypass the home page or other parts of the website or application without express written permission.

NO ADVERTISING
You may not add any advertising, sponsorship or promotional messages in or around the programs, including but not limited to audio, video, display or text advertising. You may not present the inclusion of the programs in any proposal to advertisers.

NO MARKETING USAGE
Without explicit written permission, you may not use the programs’ logos or names in marketing materials for your application, including but not limited to your application’s title, artwork, website, public advertising, app store listings or screenshots.

RESTRICTIONS ON USAGE
You may not use the programs on another user’s behalf or provide the programs to another user, even if that user provides their credentials to you. You may not alter the programs in any way.

REQUEST FOR REMOVAL
At our sole discretion, we reserve the right to require that our programs be removed from any application and to revoke your right to link to our programs, at any time upon notice to you, even if the above guidelines are followed -- including, for example, if inclusion creates concerns about branding or marketing, or would violate the terms of another agreement into which we are entered.
