Alexa Connect Kit Program Requirements

These Program Requirements are part of the Amazon Developer Services Agreement (the " Agreement ") available here. Capitalized terms used, but not defined, in these Program Requirements have the meanings given in the Agreement. You must ensure that you and all of your ACK Products comply with these Program Requirements at all times. These Program Requirements will continue to apply for as long as the ACK Service is available through your ACK Products.

  1. General Product Requirements. You must comply with the Alexa Device Requirements currently available here.

  2. ACK Service Requirements. You agree that in connection with your (and your ACK Products’) use of the ACK Service:

    1. your ACK Products must be capable of receiving over-the-air updates that allow for authorized software updates to be securely distributed;

    2. you will promptly (and in any event within any timeframes we expressly specify) update your ACK Products with any updates we require to any ACK Materials incorporated into your ACK Products and you will enable and not prevent or interfere with any over-the-air updates we require to such ACK Materials;

    3. you will not use the ACK Service for the purpose of monitoring, and will not monitor, the availability, performance, or functionality of any of Amazon’s products or services;

    4. you will be solely responsible for determining and complying with any applicable legal, regulatory or policy restrictions or requirements related to your ACK Products or the design, manufacturing, marketing, offer for sale, sale, distribution, use, and operation thereof, including without limitation U.S. and any other applicable export control and trade laws;

    5. you will not (i) misrepresent your identity or the origin of your ACK Product, (ii) mask your usage in connection with your use of the ACK Service, or (iii) provide your developer credentials to any third party;

    6. you will not charge any additional fees to any end user for access to or use of ACK Materials or the ACK Service (e.g., subscription fees for the ACK Service) or any portion thereof, beyond what you charge for your ACK Products;

    7. you may not use the ACK Service for any activity where the use or failure of the ACK Service could lead to death, injury, or property damage; and

    8. you must implement reasonable security measures to ensure that no third party may gain unauthorized access to the ACK Service, any ACK Materials, or any content, data, or other information transmitted via any ACK Product.

  3. Branding Requirements. Your ACK Product must not have a product name, domain name, logo or any other branding that includes, is a variant of, or is confusingly similar to “Alexa”, “Echo,” “Amazon” or another Amazon trademark or logo. Your ACK Product must not have a form factor, design or light ring that is confusingly similar to Amazon devices, including the Amazon Echo family of devices.

  4. Approval of your ACK Product. We may require you to submit your ACK Products to us for review and approval in connection with any proposed or actual distribution of (or otherwise making available use of) your ACK Products to any customers or end users.
