Unless an express agreement has been reached, a company holding a 'Business License' may only use it for the registration and management of Edge Nodes purchased by a single company. In the event that management of Edge Nodes from more than one company is required, a multitenant license or the functional add-on enabling multi-company management must be acquired.

Barbara, in its sole discretion, will determine abuse or excessive usage of Barbara API. Barbara will make a reasonable attempt via email to warn the Account owner prior to suspension.
Barbara reserves the right at any time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, your access to Barbara API (or any part thereof) with or without notice.

You may conduct penetration tests of your services deployed with Barbara. To do so, please contact us with the following information:
