This Agreement does not grant you any right or license to access and/or use the Toast APIs or the Toast Services. Only upon Toast’s approval of your Online Application, and your acceptance of Toast’s API Terms of Service will you be granted a license to access and use the Toast APIs for the purpose of building an integration of Your Application with the Toast Services.
