2.4 You may use Developer Materials only in connection with iAdvize products and services for which they are made available. If the Developer Materials include any libraries, sample code, or other materials we make available specifically for incorporation in your Applications (as indicated by the applicable documentation), you may incorporate those materials in your Applications and reproduce and distribute those Developer Materials as incorporated in your Applications. You may also modify any such sample code to the extent necessary to incorporate it in your Applications. We may modify or discontinue (including by ceasing our distribution of or support for) any or all of the Developer Materials at any time without notice and you are solely responsible for ensuring that your Applications function properly after any such modification or discontinuation. If iAdvize assigns you developer credentials, such as client ID and client secret, you must use them with the Developer Materials.

The Developer Materials may include or be distributed with software or other materials that are provided under a separate license agreement (such as an open source license), and that separate license will govern the use of such software or other materials in the event of a conflict with this Agreement. Any such separate license agreement may be indicated in the license, notice, or readme files distributed with the applicable software or other materials or in related documentation.
