Schedule 2


If additional functions or users are required without an agreed amendment, the customer will agree to pay licence fees in accordance with Supplier’s pricing schedule.


Due date: Not applicable.


Payment terms: customer shall pay all advance payments for the API including top up requests under the account once existing API ‘clicks’ have expired.


Payment will be made as the following:-

a. An advance payment chosen by the User according to needs

b. The set fee is to include request 'clicks' through the API to a designated level in all exclusive and 12 non-exclusive areas of the world and for use in all applications.

c. Any excess 'clicks' to be charged pro rata in addition each month.


Number of Users: The customer is not limited to a number of users accessing the API. Rather, limitations will exist based on the number of credits on the account as determined by the number of credits chosen for pre-payment upon completion of the website application form for the API.


The number of API credits which exist on the customer's account will depend on the value of the advanced payment made by the customer. The greater the payment, the more API calls will be assigned to the account. Credits will be consumed in varying amounts, depending on how they are used. For example, a BVI number will be worth an amount of credits and calculating Total Body Fat will be worth a different amount of credits, and so on. Any call on the API using that account key will consume that account's credits until the balance has been exhausted.

Excess API Credits

If the usage of credits is to exceed the prepaid number, these will be charged pro-rata at the same agreed fee per credit. The choice of package for credits will remain and be the responsibility of the purchaser.


The API can deliver the following functions: waist measurement, hip measurement, waist to height ratio, waist to hip ratio, visceral fat, total body fat, BVI Risk Indicator and the BVI Number. Under the terms of this Contract you have permission to only access the following API functions:

● Waist measurement

● Waist to height ratio

● Waist to hip ratio

● Total body fat

● Visceral fat

● BVI Risk Indicator - Result quartile

● BVI Number - Reference

Use Of Images

The BVI Provider will process the digital images in order to produce the measurements for the API service, but the BVI provider will never store any images received from the end users of the API. The images will always be automatically deleted by the BVI Provider after they have been processed.

Schedule 3

API Documentation

This Schedule 3 sets out the API documentation as of the Start Date of the Contract and as will be available on the website. The BVI Provider shall make updates or enhancements to the API documentation, and notice of such updates or enhancements shall immediately be made available to the Customer.
