IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT, DO NOT ACCESS THIS INFORMATION FROM ANY HEXAGON-ENABLED WEB SITE, OR OTHER MEANS OF ACCESSING OR DOWNLOADING INFORMATION. ACCESS TO THE GEOSPATIAL DATA IS GRANTED BY HEXAGON EXCLUSIVELY ON THESE TERMS OR OTHER TERMS EXPRESSLY AGREED IN WRITING AND SIGNED BY AN AUHORIZED OFFICER OF HEXAGON.
This End User Access Agreement (“Agreement”) is between you and Leica Geosystems Inc. (“Hexagon”), a Delaware corporation with a place of business at 5051 Peachtree Corners Cir., Suite 250, Norcross, GA 30092, USA.
1. Purchase Type. You may purchase a Pixel Download or a Streaming Subscription on the data store, which is available at https://hxgncontent.com/data-store. A Pixel Download allows you to download georeferenced, physical world imagery data (“Geospatial Data”) by selecting in the data store an area of interest, resolution, and file format. A streaming subscription allows you to access Geospatial Data for a period of time (“Subscription Period”) you select from the data store. You must specify the geographic scope of the data you wish to stream (e.g., country, state, metro or county). The streaming service supports access through ArcGIS and OGC WMS/WMTS protocols directly into your application of choice. By making a purchase on the data store, you agree to the terms of this Agreement.
2. Rights to Geospatial Data. Your rights to use Geospatial Data depend on whether you have purchased a Streaming Subscription or a Pixel Download from the data store. In this Agreement, “you”, and “your” means the legal entity, or natural person in the event of personal use, who has created an account on the data store for purchasing access to the Geospatial Data.
A. Streaming Subscription.
If you purchase a Streaming Subscription, Hexagon grants you access to the Geospatial Data through the online services provided by Hexagon (the “Services”) for which you have paid the required fees. You may grant access to one person within the corporation, governmental body, or other legal entity that directly employs you, or of which you are the principal or officer, to use the Services. If Hexagon consents in writing (which consent may require a fee), you may permit access by additional users in your organization (the “Authorized End Users”).
You must use the Services in accordance with the Acceptable Use Policy. You are responsible for use or misuse of the Geospatial Data or Services, and for compliance with and breach of this Agreement by the Authorized End Users.
During the subscription period set forth in the data store, and subject to payment of fees when due and compliance with this Agreement, Authorized End Users may use the Geospatial Data for internal purposes to (i) consume Geospatial Data through a desktop and/or web-based GIS application (to the extent compatible with the Geospatial Data), and (ii) combine vector layers and other data sets with the Geospatial Data, and (iii) otherwise use the Geospatial Data and the Services for internal purposes within your organization.
You may not grant any person the right to access the Geospatial Data, including your affiliates or contractors.
B. Pixel Download
If you purchase a Pixel Download, subject to the payment of all required fees when due and compliance with this agreement, Hexagon grants Authorized End Users (i.e., you and your authorized users within your organization, as defined in paragraph A., above) the right to download and use internally the Geospatial Data for which you have paid the required fees. You may copy and distribute the Geospatial Data to other employees in your organization, but you may not copy or distribute the Geospatial Data outside of your organization, including to affiliates or contractors.
3. Attribution. You may not alter or remove any copyright notices.
4. Ownership. Geospatial Data is not sold to the Authorized End User and no ownership rights are transferred to the Authorized End User. The Geospatial Data is owned by Hexagon or its licensors.
5. Confidentiality. “Confidential Information” means all information disclosed by Hexagon (“Disclosing Party”) to an Authorized End User (“Receiving Party”), whether orally or in writing, that is designated as confidential or that relates to the Services, including the terms of this Agreement (including pricing). Confidential Information excludes any information that: (i) is or becomes generally known to the public without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party, (ii) was known to the Receiving Party prior to its disclosure by the Disclosing Party without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party, (iii) is received from a third party without breach of any obligation owed to the Disclosing Party, or (iv) was independently developed by the Receiving Party.
The Receiving Party will use the same degree of care that it uses to protect the confidentiality of its own confidential information of like kind, but in no event less than reasonable care, to (i) not use any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party for any purpose outside the scope of this Agreement and (ii) except as otherwise authorized by the Disclosing Party in writing, limit access to Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to those of its and its affiliates’ employees and contractors who need that access for purposes consistent with this Agreement and who are under confidentiality obligations with the Receiving Party not materially less protective than those herein. The Receiving Party shall destroy Confidential Information in its possession upon termination of this agreement. Nothing in this section grants rights to Geospatial Data greater than those set forth in section 1 of this Agreement.
The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to the extent compelled by law to do so, provided the Receiving Party gives the Disclosing Party prior notice of the compelled disclosure (to the extent legally permitted) and reasonable assistance, at the Disclosing Party's cost, if the Disclosing Party wishes to contest the disclosure.
6. Fees and Taxes. The data store sets forth the fees, subscription term and other terms related to access and use of the Geospatial Data, and is hereby incorporated into, and forms a part of, this Agreement. Fees are exclusive of all applicable sales, use, value added, GST, and other taxes (and all applicable tariffs, customs duties and similar charges), and you will be responsible for payment of all such taxes (other than taxes based on the net income of Hexagon), tariffs, duties and charges (and any related penalties and interest), payable in connection with this Agreement or the provision of Services hereunder.
