1. API Overview.
1.1 Overview. We make the API available to facilitate a variety of Host Services and other functionality on or in connection with use of the Airbnb Platform (each an “API Program”). Examples of API Programs include connections to property management, channel management, operations management, connected device, and hospitality providers; the Preferred Software Partner Program; and activity and tour booking management software; to support Host Services and incentivize use of the Airbnb Platform. Through the API, we provide the ability to access, read, modify, write, and otherwise interact with certain types of data (each set of access permissions, a “Scope”). Your organization will have access to Scopes that are appropriate to the API Program in which your organization participates. Your organization is responsible for maintaining, and agrees to maintain, in good working order any application, service, or website it uses to call or otherwise use the API (“API Client”).
1.3 API Programs. If your organization participates in an API Program, it must comply with applicable Program Requirements, which in all cases include: (i) signing Airbnb’s standard mutual nondisclosure agreement; (ii) agreeing to these API Terms; (iii) signing any relevant Partner Specific Terms; (iv) successfully completing Airbnb’s data security review; and (v) implementing all mandatory API features within 6 months of their release. Additional Program Requirements are generally included in the landing pages for their respective API Program, but may also be included in developer.airbnb.com and in communications from Airbnb to your organization or supplemental agreements between Airbnb and your organization (collectively, the “Program Documentation”). Typically, the Scopes available to your organization through the API will be a function of which API Program your organization participates in. Which Scopes are available as part of an API Program or are made available to your organization is determined by Airbnb, and may be changed from time to time, in each case at Airbnb’s sole and absolute discretion without liability to your organization.
1.4 Registration and Airbnb Accounts. Your organization or a Member acting on behalf of your organization must register for and maintain an Airbnb Account to use the API. In addition to that primary Airbnb Account, we may, with your organization’s authorization, enable other Members to administer and use the API on behalf of your organization. Each individual who acts on behalf of your organization with respect to the API must also register for and maintain in good standing an Airbnb Account. Your organization must ensure that any information provided to us as part of registering or administering an Airbnb Account is accurate, complete, and current. All Airbnb Accounts are subject to our Terms of Service.
1.5 Partner Demo Account. Promptly upon our request, your organization will provide us with a free end-user account and log-in information for, and any other resources that might be needed to review, your products or services (“Demo Account”) for as long as you are using our API. This Demo Account must be populated with data (e.g. listings, properties, or experiences) that is representative of data normally used by customers of your product or services. We will use this Demo Account to better understand your end-user customers’ experiences in relation to the Airbnb Services as enabled by the API (e.g. how a new feature released by the API is displayed to your end-user customers).
1.7 Management of the API. Without limiting any other provision of these API Terms, Airbnb has the right, in its sole discretion, to limit or suspend your organization’s access to the API, Scopes, and Content. Your organization agrees to such limitations and will not attempt to circumvent them. Airbnb may provide your organization with URLs that allow its customers or users to complete their transactions without re-entering parameters (“Deep Links”). Airbnb may, in its sole discretion, change the location of Deep Links, with or without notice to your organization. The API may contain or be subject to call, volume, and rate limits, and Airbnb may set call, volume, and rate limits at any time in its sole discretion.
2. Use of the API.
2.1 Permitted Uses of the API. Subject to your organization’s compliance with applicable Program Requirements, these API Terms, and any other applicable terms (as described in Section 1.2), Airbnb grants to your organization a limited, worldwide, royalty-free, revocable, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, non-assignable and non-exclusive license to access and use the API and Scopes or other Content made available to your organization through the API solely for: (i) internal business purposes as necessary to deliver Host Services under the applicable API Program; (ii) the purposes authorized in the applicable Program Documentation; and (iii) the purposes authorized under any Partner Specific Terms (the purposes expressly set out in this Section and included in the Program Documentation and any Partner Specific Terms are collectively the “Permitted Use”). Except for the Permitted Use, nothing in these API Terms grants to you or any third party, by implication or otherwise, any intellectual property rights in or to the API or any Airbnb Content.
2.2 Prohibited Uses of the API.
For clarity, “Airbnb” in this Section 2.2 includes any controlled affiliate of the Airbnb entity with which you’re contracting or which is performing under these API Terms.

X. Except as expressly authorized by any Partner Specific Terms, use the API to facilitate, accept, or in any way process or facilitate the processing of payments in relation to the Airbnb Platform or for its Members.
Y. Use or transfer any data accessed or obtained using the API, including any data aggregated, anonymized, or derived from that data, for advertising or marketing purposes, including targeting or serving ads, without consent of Airbnb.
2.3 Data Security.
A. Security Program. Your organization must maintain industry-standard or better administrative, physical, and technical safeguards to protect the privacy, security, confidentiality, and integrity of any Scopes or Content accessed by your organization.
B. Assessments, Monitoring and Remediation. Your organization must submit to reasonable data security and privacy compliance assessments by Airbnb or, at Airbnb’s request and expense, by an independent third party, to verify compliance with these API Terms and any other applicable terms (as described in Section 1.2). Airbnb may require, at its sole discretion and in light of your organization’s use of the API and the Scopes and Content accessed by your organization, that your organization make adjustments or improvements to its data security or privacy programs, standards, or processes as a condition to using or continuing to use the API. By using the API, your organization agrees and consents to monitoring by Airbnb, at its sole discretion, of whether your organization’s use of the API, Personal Data, Scopes and Content, is in compliance with these API Terms and any other applicable terms (as described in Section 1.2). In doing so, Airbnb may access and use your organization’s API Client, for example to identify security issues that could affect Airbnb or its users. Airbnb may suspend access to the API by your organization or its API Client without notice if we reasonably believe that your organization is in violation of applicable terms or domestic or international laws.
C. Minimum Security Requirements. At a minimum, your organization must maintain the following basic security measures (subject to additional security requirements depending on your organization’s Scopes and API Programs): (i) your organization must ensure that its personnel use multi-factor authentication to access the API Client, Scopes and Content, and the API; (ii) your organization must ensure that its personnel and API Client employ industry-standard or better security vulnerability practices, such as testing against the then-current OWASP Top 10 Vulnerabilities; (iii) your organization must limit access to and administrative privileges for the API Client, Scopes and Content, and the API, to job functions that require access or privileges, and access and privilege levels must be configured to allow the minimum access reasonably sufficient to enable that job function; (iv) your organization must proactively update and deploy patches for any software and tools used in or in connection with the API Client, Scopes and Content, and the API; (v) your organization must regularly (at least quarterly) scan its technology infrastructure and applications for vulnerabilities; (vi) your organization must regularly conduct security reviews and risk assessments of its own practices as well as those of vendors it uses in connection with the API to ensure the use of industry-standard or better administrative, physical, and technical safeguards consistent with these API Terms; (vii) your organization must ensure that all end user connections are conducted over HTTPS (not HTTP) and employ cipher suites that are known to be cryptographically sound; and (viii) your organization must ensure that all systems used to access Scopes or Content, or that are used in connection with the API (including the API Client): (a) are password protected and require multi-factor authentication; (b) do not allow the use of shared passwords; (c) are encrypted using industry-standard or better encryption (e.g. BitLocker or FileVault); and (d) are monitored using industry-standard or better anti-malware software. Your organization must ensure that the API Client, and any other technology or materials that interface with the API or the Airbnb Platform, are checked with internet industry-standard up-to-date antivirus, anti-Trojan and anti-worm software, and determined to be virus-free, Trojan-free and worm-free. Any data, software, or Content you or your organization provides to Airbnb or that you or your organization causes to interface with the API or the Airbnb Platform must not contain harmful scripts or code.
D. Security Patch Management. Consistent with industry-standard or better practices, your organization will maintain, patch, and remediate all systems, devices, firmware, operating systems, applications, and other software that process Content or Personal Data. Such patch service level timelines must meet or exceed the following for resolution of the relevant issue: (i) critical (7 days); (ii) high (30 days); (iii) medium (90 days); or (iv) low (180 days).
E. Security Incident—Definition. A “Security Incident” is any event that could negatively impact the security of any Scopes or Content, including any: (i) unauthorized access (or attempt to access), use, disclosure, modification, or destruction of Scopes, Content, or Personal Data (including Personal Data processed by a third party on your organization’s behalf); (ii) act that violates any law or any security policy of Airbnb or your organization; (iii) unplanned service disruption that prevents the normal operation of your API Client or the Airbnb Services; or (iv) unauthorized access or attempt to access your organization’s or Airbnb’s applications or systems.
F. Security Incident—Response and Reporting. If your organization detects or suspects a Security Incident, your organization must:
(i) Notify Airbnb’s IT Security Representative by emailing email@example.com immediately and no later than within one (1) hour after your organization becomes aware of a Security Incident involving: (a) regulated data (Protected Health Information (PHI), Personal Card Data (PCI), information subject to Sarbanes-Oxley internal controls requirements, etc.), Airbnb Account credentials, API access codes, Scopes or Content; or (b) law enforcement or a regulatory body to the extent permitted by applicable law. For other Security Incidents, notify Airbnb’s IT Security Representative by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org within twenty-four (24) hours. If the Security Incident involves Personal Data received under these API Terms, your organization must also immediately notify all affected third party controllers of such Personal Data (“Third-Party Controllers”) of such Security Incident, with a copy of such notification to email@example.com.
(ii) Immediately perform such Security Incident response activities as may be reasonably requested by Airbnb, including: responding and investigating; collecting, analyzing and preserving evidence; and containing, remediating, recovering, and mitigating adverse impacts.
(iii) If requested by Airbnb, prepare and deliver to Airbnb within five (5) business days of the Security Incident a root cause report that describes in detail: (i) the nature and extent of the Security Incident; (ii) the Scopes or Content affected; (iii) all supporting evidence, including system, network, and application logs related to the Security Incident; (iv) all investigative, corrective, and remedial actions completed, and planned actions and the dates that such actions will be completed; (v) all efforts taken to mitigate the risks of further Security Incidents; and (vi) an assessment of the security impact to Airbnb. Upon Airbnb’s request, your organization shall provide Airbnb with immediate and ongoing access to all meetings, reports, copies of all logs and data, and other information that has a nexus to Security Incidents impacting Airbnb.
(i) “Applicable Privacy Law” means applicable data protection laws, including European Union Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (“GDPR” or “Regulation”), Privacy and Electronic Communications Directive 2002/58/EC (“ePrivacy Directive”), any national laws or regulations implementing the foregoing ePrivacy Directive or Regulation, the data protection and information privacy Laws of Brazil (“LGPD” - Law n. 13.709/2018) and Brazilian Internet Regulation (MCI – Marco Civil da Internet – Law n. 12.965/2014), and any other applicable data protection, privacy or data security laws or regulations in the United States of America (including the California Consumer Privacy Act (the “CCPA”)) United Kingdom, Switzerland, or any other applicable jurisdiction and any amendments to or replacements for any of the foregoing laws and regulations.
(ii) “Personal Data” means any information about an identified or identifiable person, including any information deemed “personal information” or “personal data” under Applicable Privacy Law.
(iii) The terms “process,” “controller,” “processor,” “supervisory authorities,” “data protection impact assessments,” “transfer,” “Standard Contractual Clauses,” and “data subject” have the same definitions as in Applicable Privacy Law.
B. Status as Controller. Unless the applicable Partner Specific Terms provide to the contrary, your organization is the separate controller of any Personal Data made available to your organization through the API. As a controller of that Personal Data, your organization is responsible for complying with, and for ensuring your organization’s third-party service providers comply with, any and all obligations under Applicable Privacy Law, subject to the obligations in this Section 2.4. As a controller, Airbnb is also responsible for compliance with Applicable Privacy Law in respect of its use of Personal Data in connection with this agreement. Your organization is responsible and liable for any claims, losses, expenses, costs or damages arising from, or based on, a purported or actual failure of your organization (and, consistent with Applicable Privacy Law, its processors) to comply with Applicable Privacy Law.
C. Permitted Use of Personal Data. With respect to Personal Data we make available to your organization through the API: (i) your organization must not use Personal Data for any purpose other than the Permitted Use; (ii) if your organization uses the API to access the Airbnb Platform or provide Host Services on the Airbnb Platform, your organization’s use of Personal Data must comply with our Terms of Service and other terms discussed in Section 1.2; (iii) where a Member has authorized your organization to use his or her Personal Data, your organization must use that Personal Data consistent with and only to the extent of such authorization (it being understood that all data privacy and usage limitations in these API Terms, and any other applicable terms (as described in Section 1.2), apply equally to equivalent data collected separately under the terms of any such contract); (iv) your organization must comply with its obligations under Applicable Privacy Law relating to the use, disclosure, storage or other operations with respect to Personal Data; (v) your organization shall not “sell” or “share” the Personal Data of California residents within the meaning of the CCPA; and (vi) your organization must notify Airbnb if your organization determines that it cannot provide the level of protection required under these API Terms. If your organization notifies Airbnb that it cannot provide the required level of protection, Airbnb has the right to terminate your organization’s use of the API without cost or liability, and your organization must cease using Personal Data made available through the API or take other reasonable and appropriate steps to remediate the situation as directed by Airbnb.
D. Disclosures. Your organization authorizes Airbnb to disclose your organization’s receipt of Personal Data and the purposes for which Airbnb has provided such Personal Data. If Airbnb notifies your organization that any person identified or identifiable by Personal Data has requested to opt out of disclosure or use of such Personal Data, your organization must comply with Airbnb’s instructions regarding the cessation of use, disclosure, storage, deletion, or other operations with respect to such Personal Data. Your organization authorizes Airbnb to provide the text of any privacy related sections of these API Terms (or any other terms incorporated herein) to any applicable governmental entity, including the United States Department of Commerce.
E. Assistance. Your organization agrees to provide any assistance reasonably requested by Airbnb for the purpose of Airbnb’s compliance with, or otherwise in connection with, Applicable Privacy Laws. Such assistance may include updating, returning or deleting Personal Data upon Airbnb’s request if Airbnb reasonably suspects a breach of these API Terms.
F. Third-Party Controllers. For clarity, this Section 2.4(F) does not apply to your organization to the extent you are using the API as a professional hospitality provider.
(i) If Airbnb receives instruction from one or more Third Party Controllers or applicable data subjects to cease providing some or all Personal Data to your organization, Airbnb may act on such instruction without liability to your organization.
(ii) If your organization receives a lawful instruction from one or more Third Party Controller or applicable data subject to take action with respect to Personal Data provided by Airbnb to your organization at the direction of such Third Party Controller or data subject, your organization may act on such instruction. Upon request, your organization must provide appropriate evidence of any Third Party Controller or applicable data subject instruction to Airbnb.
(iii) With respect to Personal Data provided to your organization by Third Party Controllers, your organization represents and warrants that it shall: (i) use and process such Personal Data solely as authorized by the relevant Third Party Controller under the applicable contract with such Third Party Controller; (ii) use and process such Personal Data solely in accordance with Applicable Privacy Laws; (iii) unless expressly permitted in the contract with such Third Party Controller, not transfer such Personal Data to any third party without such Third Party Controller’s prior written consent; and (iv) implement and maintain adequate and appropriate administrative, technical, and physical measures that protect the security, integrity, confidentiality, and availability of such Personal Data, consistent with the terms of the contract with such Third Party Controller.
(iv) In the event that your organization’s obligations under these API Terms regarding the cessation of use, disclosure, storage, or other operations with respect to Personal Data, conflict with lawful instructions from a Third Party Controller regarding the same Personal Data, your organization will be entitled to follow the instructions of the Third Party Controller so long as it also provides prompt written notice of the conflict to Airbnb.
H. Cross-Border Transfers. Transfers from the EEA, UK, or Switzerland. Transfers of Personal Information from a Airbnb entity located in a Member State of the European Economic Area, Switzerland, or the UK (“EEA” or “Similar Country”) to your organization in a location other than the EEA or Similar Country, will be governed by the EU Standard Contractual Clauses, Module One (Controller to Controller) (“SCCs”), which are hereby incorporated. As to the SCCs, your organization and Airbnb agree that:
(i) with respect to Clause 17, the governing law shall be the law of Ireland;
(ii) with respect to Clause 18, the courts of Ireland shall have jurisdiction;
(iii) Section 9 of these API Terms serves as Annex I of the SCCs; and
(iv) Section 2.3 of these API Terms serves as Annex II of the SCCs.
I. Data Retention and Deletion. Your organization will retain Personal Data only during the term of the agreement created by these API Terms, solely to the extent necessary for your organization to perform its obligations under this agreement. Without limiting its obligations under any confidentiality agreement between your organization and Airbnb, your organization will, as appropriate and as directed by Airbnb, regularly delete Personal Data that your organization maintains, possesses, or controls, but that is no longer necessary to perform its obligations under this agreement. Your organization will provide Airbnb with reasonable prior notice of such deletions. Upon the termination of the agreement created by these API Terms, your organization will: (i) notify Airbnb seven (7) days before the disposal of Personal Data that it will dispose of Personal Data in accordance with this agreement; (ii) promptly destroy or return (in each case within thirty (30) days of termination of this agreement) all Personal Data in your organization’s possession, power, or control, in a manner and format reasonably requested by Airbnb; and (iii) delete existing copies of Personal Data (except to the extent applicable law requires storage of the Personal Data, in which case your organization will notify Airbnb of such law). Upon Airbnb’s request, your organization will provide a written certification that all Personal Data has been returned or securely destroyed.
J. Survival. The obligations contained in this Section 2.4 survive any termination of these API Terms for so long as your organization has custody, control or possession of Personal Data made available to your organization by Airbnb.
2.5 Confidential Information.
A. Confidential Information. “Confidential Information” means all information of a disclosing party that is marked as confidential or proprietary or which would reasonably be considered confidential or proprietary to such party, excluding information that: (i) is publicly known through no fault of the receiving party; (ii) was already known to the receiving party without confidentiality obligations; or (iii) was independently developed by the receiving party. Airbnb’s Confidential Information includes product plans and pricing, marketing plans and insights, customer lists, reports and analytics, business strategies, beta products, forecasts, Feedback, and trade secrets. Your organization and Airbnb will keep each other’s Confidential Information confidential and not use or disclose such Confidential Information (including through press releases or other publicity events or publications) except to the extent necessary to perform the services under these API Terms. For clarity, if your organization and Airbnb execute a nondisclosure or other agreement with confidentiality terms governing your use of the API, such other agreement’s confidentiality terms control over this Section 2.5.
B. Member Content. If your organization obtains or accesses non-public Member Content through the API, your organization must not expose such Content to its users, customers, or any other third party without the prior, explicit, written opt-in consent from such Member.
C. Survival. This Section 2.5 will survive any termination of these API Terms.
3. Intellectual Property and Ownership.
3.1 Ownership. Your organization acknowledges and agrees that the API, the Airbnb Platform, and any Content made available through the API, including all associated intellectual property rights, including trademark and trade dress, whether registered or unregistered, design patents, utility patents, and copyright registrations, are the exclusive property of Airbnb or its licensors or authorizing third-parties, and no license beyond that granted to your organization under Section 2.1 is granted or implied by your organization’s use of the API, Airbnb Platform, or Content. Your organization also acknowledges and agrees that Airbnb hosts the Content appearing on the Airbnb Platform and that nothing provided in these API Terms will be deemed to create or imply that Airbnb owns or creates, in whole or part, any third party Content that may appear pursuant to a license on the Airbnb Platform or through the API. Any Content created by a third party (such as Member Content) is the sole responsibility of that third party. Your organization may not, and agrees that it will not, remove, alter, or obscure any copyright, trademark, service mark, or other proprietary rights notices incorporated in or accompanying the API, the Airbnb Platform, the Scopes, or any Content. All trademarks, service marks, logos, trade names, and any other source identifiers of Airbnb used on or in connection with the API, Airbnb Platform, Scopes, or Content are trademarks or registered trademarks of Airbnb in the United States and abroad. Trademarks, service marks, logos, trade dress, trade names, and any other proprietary designations of third parties used on or in connection with the API, the Airbnb Platform, Scopes, and Content are used for identification purposes only and may be the property of their respective owners. This Section 3.1 will survive any termination of these API Terms.
3.2 Airbnb Assistance. Any advice, consultation, services, code, software, or other technology (“Airbnb Assistance”) that we provide or make available to your organization in connection with its use of the API, or related to its API Client, is provided “as is” without warranties of any kind, and subject to the disclaimer in Section 5. Your organization may only use Airbnb Assistance for the Permitted Use (consistent with Section 2), and must terminate that use if it ceases to use the API (as provided under Section 4).
3.3 Your Organization’s Content. Your organization is solely responsible for all information and Content that it makes available through or submits using the API. Accordingly, your organization represents and warrants that: (i) it is the sole and exclusive owner of such Content or has all necessary rights, licenses, consents, and releases to grant to Airbnb the rights in and to such Content; and (ii) neither your organization’s Content nor its posting, uploading, publication, submission, or transmittal of such Content, nor Airbnb’s use of the Content (or any portion thereof), will infringe, misappropriate, or violate a third party’s patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret, moral rights, or other proprietary or intellectual property rights, or rights of publicity or privacy, or result in the violation of any applicable law or regulation.
3.4 Your Organization’s Trademarks. Except where the Partner Specific Terms provide to the contrary, your organization hereby grants to Airbnb and its controlled affiliates a worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive license to use your organization’s name, logo, trademarks, trade dress, branding elements, and other relevant materials to identify your organization in the Airbnb Platform and applicable Program Documentation. For example, we may include your organization’s name and logo in Listings that your organization creates or manages using the API.
3.5 Airbnb’s Trademarks. Except to the extent the Program Documentation or any Partner Specific Terms provide to the contrary, your organization may not use Airbnb’s name, trade names, trademarks, service marks, logos, trade dress, domain names, or other distinctive brand features (the “Brand Features”) in the API Client, in connection with its use of the API, in violation of the Trademark Guidelines, or otherwise, without the prior, express written consent of Airbnb. If Airbnb consents to any such use: (i) such use must comply with Airbnb’s brand guidelines; (ii) such use is only permitted for your organization, and not for any of your affiliates; and (iii) Airbnb may at any time revoke such consent for noncompliance with the brand guidelines. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, your organization agrees not to challenge (or assist others to challenge) any trademark, logo, domain name, or brand feature or material of Airbnb, or the registration thereof by Airbnb, nor to attempt to register any brand features (including domain names) that are confusingly similar to those of Airbnb in any way (including appearance, spelling, or sound).
3.6 Open Source Software. Some of the software required by or included in the API may be offered under an open source license. There may be provisions in the open source license that expressly override some of these terms; and in those cases, the overriding provisions apply.
3.7 Takedown Requests. Upon request by Airbnb, your organization must immediately remove any individual item of Content from its API Client. Without limiting the foregoing, your organization agrees to comply in all respects with the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) (see, e.g., 17 U.S.C. § 512) in response to requests from Airbnb or from any eligible third party, and must maintain a fully compliant DMCA takedown procedure applicable to, and accessible on, the API Client. If your organization has customers or users in, or otherwise targets, any part of the European Union, your organization must maintain a notice-and-takedown program compliant with the laws and regulations of the European Union and its member states.
