1. Services

The Biblia APIs are a service of Logos Bible Software designed to allow pre-approved licensees to retrieve, create, and manipulate content (including both previously published and user-created) from Logos Bible Software’s databases.

  • use these APIs in a commercial product or service that competes with a product or service from Logos Bible Software.
  • share your API Key with anyone else, or allow its use by another party.
  • use these APIs for any purpose which violates the law, an individual’s right to privacy, or intellectual property rights.

5. Privacy

Your registration for an API Key for the Biblia APIs implies your consent to receive email and other communication from Logos Bible Software. Logos Bible Software may record and store the details of calls to the Biblia APIs. Logos Bible Software stores and manages access to user-created content, and supports basic user controls for limiting access to the content, but Logos personnel have the ability to view user-created content for the purposes of research, product planning, and providing customer support. The Biblia APIs and Logos Bible Software are designed for Bible study, research, and sharing the fruits of such; consequently users should not store confidential or proprietary information in user-created content. (Logos Bible Software does make every reasonable effort to comply with laws and regulations concerning credit card security.)

Some of the content (including user-created content) available through the Biblia APIs is copyrighted. The availability of content through the APIs does not imply sub-licensing rights; you are required to research and observe copyright status and use restrictions for content retrieved through the APIs.
