Postmanaut standing in front of scales of justice. Illustration.

1. Introduction

These User Terms of Service ("Terms") are between you ("you") and Postman, Inc. ("Postman" or "we") and govern your use of all versions of the Postman software and services, including the Postman API, Postman AI, and Beta Previews (collectively, the "Services"), the Postman websites, including but not limited to www.postman.com, postman.postman.co, blog.postman.com, learning.postman.com, community.postman.com, and store.getpostman.com (the "Websites"), and your participation in any Postman research studies.

2. Binding Agreement

By downloading, installing, or using the Services on any computer system, or by accepting these Terms (either by clicking a box indicating that you accept these Terms, or by executing an ordering document (“Order”) referencing these Terms), you acknowledge and agree that you have read, understand, and agree to be bound by these Terms and you acknowledge that you have read and understand our Privacy Policy. By purchasing the Service for a fee, you confirm that you are downloading, installing and using the Services exclusively as a trader for the purposes of your enterprise.

Postman reserves the right to modify these Terms at its discretion. If Postman makes any material changes to these Terms, we will notify you, including without limitation by email or posting a notice on www.postman.com. If you do not agree to, or cannot comply with, the modified Terms, you must stop using the Services and Websites. The updated Terms will take effect upon their posting and will apply on a going-forward basis, unless otherwise provided in a notice to you. Your continued use of the Services and Websites after any such update constitutes your acceptance of such changes. Notwithstanding the above in this paragraph, if you are a consumer with your habitual residence in a Member State of the European Union or in the United Kingdom, we will notify you reasonably in advance of any material changes to these Terms, as well as of any content and use policies we may implement from time to time, by email. You may refuse to accept the new Terms by waiving the use of the Services as of the effective date of the new Terms. If you continue using the Services as of the effective date of the new Terms, you shall be deemed to have accepted the new Terms. We will inform you of this effect of your continued use of the Services when notifying you of the respective changes.

If you are agreeing to these Terms not as an individual but on behalf of your company, government, or other entity for which you are acting (for example, as an employee or government official) then "you" means your entity and you are binding your entity to these Terms. If you do not have such authority or if you do not agree with these Terms, do not accept these Terms and do not use the Services.

The Services are not intended for and should not be used by anyone under the age of 13, (or 18 for Users in the European Union), and we do not permit any Users under 13 (or 18 for Users in the European Union) on our Services. The term “User” means any individual that Uses the Services (as defined in Section 3 below). Further, you must ensure that all of your Users are at least the age of majority where you reside to use the Services and/or participate in any research study.

3. Use of the Services

3.1 Right to Use

Subject to your compliance with these Terms and paying the applicable fees, Postman grants you a revocable, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, limited right to Use* the Services on a subscription basis in executable code form in accordance with these Terms. Except for the limited rights expressly set out in these Terms, Postman grants you no other license or right in the Services. Your rights will end when these Terms are terminated even if there are terms to the contrary set out elsewhere in these Terms or in other documentation entered into between Postman and you.

Use, Using or Used means to directly or indirectly activate the processing capabilities of the Services, load, execute, access, utilize, store, employ the Services, or display information resulting from such capabilities, including uploading any Content* or creating or generating any Content by utilizing the capabilities of the Services.

**Content refers to content featured or displayed through the Services (including through the Websites), including without limitation code, text, data, articles, images, photographs, graphics, software, applications, packages, designs, features, and other materials that are available on the Websites or otherwise available through the Services. "User-Generated Content" is Content, written or otherwise, that Users upload into or create by Using the Services. "Your Content" is User-Generated Content that you or your Users submit to the Services.

The Services include certain code and libraries licensed to us by third parties, including open source software ("OSS") as listed at here along with the applicable OSS license. Your right to use such OSS shall be governed by the applicable OSS license agreement instead of these Terms.

3.2 Postman Account

The Services allow a User to create an individual account ("Account"). The information you provide to us when you create an Account must be accurate, complete and current. You also have the obligation to keep your Account information accurate, complete and current at all times. If any of the information you submit to us changes, you must promptly update the same.

At any given point in time a single User's Account may only be logged in on a maximum of three (3) computer systems.

You must keep your Account access credentials safe and secure. You are responsible for all actions taken through your Accounts. You are required to promptly inform Postman and modify your Account login credentials or those of a permitted User if such login credentials are compromised and/or misused/likely to be misused by a third party to improperly access the Services through your Account. You also agree that your profile information will be accurate.

3.3 Postman Teams

All versions of the Postman Services may support working collaboratively in teams.

The User who will be responsible for the establishment and management of your team is referred to as an Admin User. Once your Admin User has created your Account, they can invite other Users to Use the Services through the "invite" feature in the Account. The Admin User will be required to provide the name, email address, and any other information required by Postman for each User.

An Admin User shall be entitled to designate more than one Admin User. Upon such designation, each new Admin User will be able to do everything that any other Admin User is permitted to do by the Services and these Terms.

A fee is charged for each User to whom you want to provide the ability to Use the Services on your behalf. You must not allow any form of time-sharing use, permit more than one individual to use the same Postman login credentials, or any other arrangement which bypasses or defeats Postman's system controls designed to enforce team size limits. Subject to the terms herein, your Admin Users may add or remove Users from your Account by following relevant instructions set out in Postman's standard published documentation for the Services. If you exceed the number of User subscriptions purchased, you may be charged additional fees, including as set forth in our Auto-Flex Policy.

3.4 The Postman API

Your Account may be accessible via the Postman application programming interface ("Postman API"). Any use of the Postman API, including use of the Postman API through a third-party product that accesses an Account, the Services or the Websites is subject to these Terms, including the following:

  1. Excessively frequent requests via the Postman API (in excess of the rate limits set out at API.postman.com) may result in the temporary or permanent suspension of your team's access to the Postman API. Postman, in its sole and reasonable discretion, will determine abuse or excessive usage of the Postman API. Postman will make a reasonable attempt via email to communicate with the Admin User prior to suspension.
  2. Postman reserves the right at any time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, your access to the Postman API (or any part thereof) with or without notice. Notwithstanding the above in this paragraph, if you are a consumer with your habitual residence in a Member State of the European Union or the United Kingdom, Postman may modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, your access to the Postman API (or any part thereof) with a reasonable prior written notice provided to you, unless the amendments and discontinuations are limited to technical evolutions that do not result in an increase in price or a change in quality and characteristics of the Postman API.
  3. You expressly understand and agree that Postman shall not be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential or exemplary damages, including but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data or other intangible losses (even if Postman has been advised of the possibility of such damages), resulting from your use of the Postman API, including any access to Your Content via the Postman API. If you are a consumer with your habitual residence in a Member State of the European Union or in the United Kingdom, Section 11.3.2 shall take precedence over this paragraph 3. above.

3.5 Beta Previews

3.5.1. "Beta Previews" mean software, services, or features identified as alpha, beta, preview, early access, or evaluation, or words or phrases with similar meanings. Beta Previews may not be supported and may be changed at any time without notice.

3.5.2. Confidentiality. As a User of Beta Previews, you may get access to special information that isn't available to the rest of the world. Due to the sensitive nature of this information, it's important for us to make sure that you keep that information secret.

3.5.2.1 Confidentiality Obligations. You agree that any non-public Beta Preview information we give you, such as information about a private Beta Preview, will be considered Postman's confidential information (collectively, "Confidential Information"), regardless of whether it is marked or identified as such. You agree to only use such Confidential Information for the express purpose of testing and evaluating the Beta Preview (the "Purpose"), and not for any other purpose. You should use the same degree of care as you would with your own confidential information, but no less than reasonable precautions to prevent any unauthorized use, disclosure, publication, or dissemination of our Confidential Information. You promise not to disclose, publish, or disseminate any Confidential Information to any third party, unless expressly permit such disclosure (for example, you might be part of a Postman-organized group discussion about a private Beta Preview feature).

3.5.2.2 Exceptions. Confidential Information will not include information that is: (a) or becomes publicly available without breach of these Terms through no act or inaction on your part (such as when a private Beta Preview becomes a public Beta Preview); (b) known to you before we disclose it to you; (c) independently developed by you without breach of any confidentiality obligation to us or any third party; or (d) disclosed with permission from Postman. You will not violate these Terms if you are required to disclose Confidential Information pursuant to operation of law, provided Postman has been given reasonable advance written notice to object, unless prohibited by law.

4. Postman's Proprietary Rights and Non-exclusivity

As between you and Postman, Postman shall retain all legal right, title and interest in the Content, excluding Your Content. Postman reserves all rights in and to the Services and Content that it does not expressly grant you in these Terms.

Your rights under these Terms are non-exclusive. There is no prohibition or restriction on Postman to provide the same or similar rights as set out in these Terms to any other person.

5. Use of Content

5.1 You may create or upload User-Generated Content while using the Services. You are solely responsible for any User-Generated Content that you post, upload, link to or otherwise make available via the Services, regardless of the form of that Content. By uploading User-Generated Content while using the Services, you represent and warrant that you have all necessary rights to submit the User-Generated Content and that the User-Generated Content is, to your knowledge, accurate, and not in violation of any applicable laws, contractual restrictions or other third party rights, including without limitation intellectual property rights or privacy-related rights of any person or entity. You also agree that your profile information will be accurate. We are not responsible for any public display or misuse of your User-Generated Content.

5.2 We have the right to refuse or remove any Content that, in our sole and reasonable discretion, violates any laws or these Terms of Service.

5.3 You retain ownership of and responsibility for Your Content. Because you retain ownership of and responsibility for Your Content, we need you to grant us —and other Users— certain legal permissions listed in Sections 5.4 - 5.6. These license grants apply to Your Content. You understand that you will not receive any payment for any of the rights granted in Sections 5.4 - 5.6. The licenses you grant to us and our Users will end when you remove Your Content from our servers, unless other Users have forked it, in which case the licenses will continue until all such Users have removed the Content from our servers.

5.4 We need the legal right to do things like host Your Content, publish it, and share it. You grant us and our legal successors the non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, sub-licensable, transferrable right to reproduce, store, archive, parse, display, represent perform and make available to the public (wired or wireless) Your Content, and make incidental copies, as necessary to provide the Services, including improving the Services over time, and to detect, prevent, and respond to security issues and violations of Services policies. This license does not grant Postman the right to sell Your Content. Postman shall not otherwise distribute or use Your Content outside of our provision of the Services, but we may release Your Content when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our policies, or protect ours or others' rights, property, or safety.

5.5 Any User-Generated Content you post publicly, including issues, comments, and contributions to other Users' workspaces, may be viewed by others. By making your workspace, collections, or documentation public, you agree to allow others to view and "fork" your APIs, collections, environments, mocks, monitors, and other linked entities because they become publicly accessible through your workspace, collections, or documentation. This means that others may make their own copies of Content from your workspaces, collections, or documentation in workspaces they control. If you set any of your workspaces, collections, documentation and/or entities to be viewed publicly, you grant each User of Postman a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free license to copy, use, display, represent, perform and make available to the public (wired or wireless) Your Content through the Services and to reproduce such Content solely on the Services as permitted through the Services' functionality (for example, through forking). You are responsible for ensuring that you do not accidentally make any private User-Generated Content, workspaces, collections, documentation, secrets, or other sensitive data publicly available. If such data is made publicly available, Postman may remove it. Any User-Generated Content made public will be publicly accessible through the internet and may be crawled and indexed by search engines. To the extent such restrictions are authorized by applicable law, scraping, data mining, extraction, duplicating or copying of User-Generated Content, including through AI and other automated programs or bots, or for the purposes of creating AI applications or bots, is strictly prohibited outside of the Services without the authorization of the owner of the workspace in which the User-Generated Content is hosted.

5.6 You retain all moral rights to Your Content that you upload, publish, or submit to any part of the Service, including the rights of integrity and attribution. However, to the extent permitted under applicable law, you waive these rights and agree not to assert them against us, to enable us to reasonably exercise the rights granted in Sections 5.4 and 5.5, but not otherwise. To the extent the foregoing is not enforceable under applicable law, you grant Postman the rights we need to use Your Content without attribution and to make reasonable adaptations of Your Content as necessary to render the Postman Websites and provide the Services.

5.7 Storage of Content. Postman provides you the ability to store all or part of Your Content on the Server*. If you use the storage functionality to store Your Content, you will be deemed to have accepted all the conditions in these Terms relating to such functionality.

*Server means the storage server and such other hardware and software resources of Postman that are used to host and store the Services and Content. Content is shared and made available for editing, modifying or downloading entirely at the risk of your Users and you. The sharing and enabling of editing/modification rights to Your Content is entirely within the control of your Users and Postman will not have any liability whatsoever to anyone associated with your Account (including your employer) if Your Content suffers loss or damage or retardation of functionality or is misappropriated pursuant to such sharing.

6. Personal Information

Your Use of the Services does not require any personally identifiable information to be uploaded into or included in the Services except to the extent set forth in this paragraph. You hereby acknowledge that Postman will collect, use, store and process email address(es), IP addresses from which you access the Services and other login or authentication credentials from both your Users and you in order to ensure that your Users and you have proper access to the Services and to resolve any issues you may encounter while Using the Services. This information may be considered personal data or personal information under the laws of the jurisdiction from which you access and Use the Services. Postman shall collect, use, store and/or process this information only for the purposes listed herein and in our Privacy Policy, which you acknowledge.

Postman may collect certain data and information from you in connection with your use of the Services and otherwise in connection with these Terms. All such data and information will be collected and used by Postman in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

7. Fees and Payment

7.1 Fees

Your use of the Services is subject to you paying the fees applicable to the Services plan selected and/or used by you ("Subscription Fee"). Postman's pricing for Subscription Fees, permitted usage, and available features for each Services plan are listed at postman.com/pricing (the "Pricing").

You will pay all fees in United States Dollars per the payment terms on an Order or otherwise agreed at the time of purchase. The amount of fees payable by you shall vary depending upon the number of Users and the period for which you are authorized to Use the Services ("Subscription Term"). Payment obligations are non-cancelable and, except as expressly stated in these Terms, fees paid are non-refundable. In making payment, you acknowledge that you are downloading, installing and using the Services only as a trader for the purposes of your enterprise and that you are not relying on being able to Use the Services beyond the Subscription Term or on the availability of any future enhancements or upgrades. If you fail to pay any fees on time, Postman or as applicable, its reseller ("Reseller") reserves the right, in addition to taking any other action at law or equity, to (i) charge interest on past due amounts at 1.0% per month or the highest or minimum interest rate allowed by law, whichever is less, and to charge all expenses of recovery, and (ii) suspend or terminate the applicable Services. If you add Users during a Subscription Term, such subscriptions will be billed at the then-current rate listed in the Pricing for your Services plan or as applicable, as agreed to between you and the Reseller, and shall be co-termed through the end of the applicable Subscription Term, as further described in our Auto-Flex Policy. If you make any purchases through a Reseller, you owe payment to the Reseller as agreed between you and the Reseller, but you acknowledge that we may terminate your right to Use the Services if we do not receive our corresponding payment from the Reseller.

Except as otherwise specified in an Order, all subscriptions will automatically renew for periods equal to your initial Subscription Term (and you will be charged at the then-current rates set forth in the Pricing or as applicable, the Reseller's pricing) unless you cancel auto-renewal of your subscription through your Account at least thirty (30) days prior to the end of the then-current Subscription Term. If you cancel auto-renewal, your subscription will terminate at the end of then-current billing cycle, or immediately if you so choose, however you will not be entitled to any credits or refunds for amounts accrued or paid prior to such termination.

7.2 Taxes

Our fees are exclusive of all taxes that are payable in respect of the Services or its Use in the jurisdiction in which the payment is either made or received ("Taxes"). To the extent that any Taxes may be payable, you must pay Postman or as applicable, the Reseller, the amount of such Taxes in addition to any Subscription Fees owed by you hereunder. Any applicable tax-exempt certificates must be provided to Postman, who will make reasonable efforts to provide you with such invoicing documents as may enable you to seek an applicable refund or credit for the amount of Taxes so paid from any relevant revenue authority.

7.3 Payment by Credit Card

When you purchase a subscription ("Purchase") from Postman, you expressly authorize Postman (or our third party payment processor) to charge you the Subscription Fee (at the then-current Pricing) and Taxes, as follows: (i) monthly in advance for monthly plans, (ii) annually in advance for annual plans, and (iii) in accordance with the Auto-Flex Policy for additional Users you add during an existing Subscription Term. Subscription Fees are subject to change, although Postman will notify you in advance of any such change.

Postman may ask you to supply additional information relevant to your Purchase, including your credit card number and expiration date, and your billing address (such information, "Payment Information"). You represent and warrant that you have the legal right to use all payment method(s) represented by any such Payment Information. When you initiate a Purchase, you authorize Postman to provide your Payment Information to our third party service providers so Postman can complete your Purchase and to charge your payment method for the type of Purchase you have selected (plus any Taxes and other applicable charges).

7.4 Authorization for Recurring Payments

By agreeing to these Terms and purchasing a subscription, you acknowledge that your subscription has recurring payment features and you accept responsibility for all recurring payment obligations prior to cancellation or termination of your subscription by you or Postman. Postman or the Reseller (or our third party payment processor) will automatically charge you in accordance with your Subscription Term (e.g., each month or year), on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your Subscription Term, using the Payment Information you have provided. In the event your Subscription Term begins on a day not contained in a given month, your payment method will be charged on such other day as we deem appropriate. For example, if you started a monthly subscription on January 31st, your next payment date is likely to be February 28th, and your payment method would be billed on that date. Your subscription continues until cancelled by you or Postman terminates your access to or use of the Services or the subscription in accordance with these Terms. You will pay all fees in United States Dollars per the payment terms on an Order or as otherwise agreed at the time of purchase.
