If you are interested in subscribing for Services, click here, and we will forward to you a purchase order for the particular Services you seek. If you enter into a purchase order to subscribe for Services (a “Purchase Order”), it will constitute a binding contract between you and Itemize for the Services on the terms and conditions and for the fees set forth in the Purchase Order and these Terms of Service.
In the event of any manifest conflict between the terms of the Purchase Order and these Terms of Service, the provisions of the Purchase Order shall control.

You must be located in a jurisdiction in which it is not illegal for Itemize to provide its services.
You may establish an Itemize account in one of several ways. You may also contact us at email@example.com.
Description of the Services
Itemize utilizes its proprietary technology to digitally read and store the information contained in digital and paper receipts. A “Receipt” is a document confirming that on an identified date a specific amount of money has changed hands from an identified buyer to a seller in exchange for goods or services that have been delivered or are expected to be delivered immediately. The Services process data from Receipts that meet the following scope parameters:
- Country: Receipts produced by vendors in the selected country, written in the language and paid in the currency of the selected country
- File Technical Parameters: (1) Image size: 250 KB to 750 KB maximum file size (a “large” file generated by an IPhone); (2) Image resolution: 300 Pixels per Inch (PPI) minimum; (3) one Receipt per file
- Document Formats: standard format Receipts that conform to the quality thresholds and content requirements set forth below in the section entitled “Quality Thresholds and Content Requirements of Receipts”
- Legibility: documents legible to a machine OCR device and not damaged, misprinted, obscured, or otherwise deformed in a manner that impedes machine readingThe Services can not process documents that do not meet the foregoing criteria. The following are some examples of documents that are not receipts:
- Confirmations or reservations lacking a deposit amount or any indication of payment;
- Shipping notices corresponding to receipts;
- Return notices lacking an indication of the payment amount refunded;
- Notifications of future payments due or amounts due;
- Bank ATM deposit or withdrawal records, account notices, and check images;
- Non-monetary transactions, such as loyalty program activity and point program activity; and
- Notifications that Receipts or other documents are ready for downloading.
Itemize provides its API Receipt processing services to enterprises under several plans that provide for processing and reporting different levels of data detail, for different fees on a monthly or annual basis. These plans are described in the Purchase Order. Certain plans may provide for administrative and other fees. These fees will be specified in the Purchase Order. The plans under which the Services are offered, the features of these plans and the associated fees may change from time to time.
We may sub-contract the provision of a portion of the Services to third persons in our discretion. Itemize has entered into a contract with a nationally recognized third-party provider of cloud-based storage and processing services. We hold and process the information that you upload to your Itemize account under this contract.
While we believe that we take reasonable and customary measures to ensure that information stored in clients’ accounts is reliable for its intended use, we do not provide any assurances as to the accuracy, correctness or completeness of any data, images, documents or other information (referred to collectively as “information”) that we process from the documents a client uploads to its Itemize account or that is contained in report or other document we provide to the client. We also disclaim other representations and warranties about the Itemize services as set forth below in the section entitled “Disclaimer of Warranties; Limitations on Liability.”

The Indemnified Party shall fully cooperate with the Indemnifying Party in connection with the defense of such Third-Person Claim, at the cost and expense of the Indemnifying Party, and shall be entitled to participate in (but not control) such defense with counsel of its choice and at its own sole cost and expense. If the Indemnifying Party assumes the defense of such Third-Person Claim, the Indemnified Party shall not settle the Third-Person Claim without the express prior written consent of the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnifying Party shall not settle such Third-Person Claim without the express prior consent of the Indemnified Party, unless the Indemnified Party is released from all liability in connection with such settlement and is not required to admit to any wrong-doing in connection therewith. If the Indemnifying Party does not assume the defense of such Third-Person Claim, the Indemnified Party shall defend the Third-Person Claim diligently and in good faith with counsel of recognized standing of its choice and shall not settle the Claim without the express prior consent of the Indemnifying Party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned.
