New Jersey Business Action Center End User License Agreement

NOTICE TO USER: THIS IS A CONTRACT. USE OF THE ACCOMPANYING SOFTWARE MEANS THAT YOU ACCEPT ALL THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT. If you do not agree with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, erase your copy or return the software to The New Jersey Business Action Center (BAC) without using or copying it in any way. The End User is defined any person or organization receiving these files directly from The New Jersey Business Action Center. The New Jersey Business Action Center in the State of New Jersey, Department of State, grants to the End User a license to use the software, data and documentation provided the End User agrees to the following:

I. LIMITED WARRANTY
Notwithstanding the special conditions regarding the subject data specified in part III of this licensing agreement, the Business Action Center makes no representations of any kind, including but not limited to the warranties of merchantability of fitness for a particular use, nor are any such warranties to be implied, with respect to the digital software and data furnished. The Business Action Center assumes no responsibility to maintain them in any manner or form.

II TERMS OF AGREEMENT
The Data received from BAC is to be used solely by the End User and will not be reproduced or redistributed for use by anyone else, without first obtaining written permission from BAC.

III SPECIAL CONDITIONS
The planning area delineations, where provided, are part of the New Jersey State Development and Redevelopment Plan produced and released by the New Jersey Business Action Center. The files reflect the delineations as they appeared on June, 1994. Any map amendments accepted in the interim are not reflected in these delineations. The delineations are scheduled for review and revision every three years.

Due to the complex nature of the State Development and Redevelopment Plan and the state planning process and the relationship of all of the individual parts of the plan, questions regarding the plan should not be resolved by or even considered using maps alone. This would provide a limited view of the comprehensive approach embodied in the plan. For this reason, any questions relating to the plan or its delineations for the State should be directed to BAC.

The information has been delivered in a standard format. BAC assumes no liability for inability of the End User to use this software or data or for any financial damages caused by such an inability. BAC agrees, however, to assist in resolving any problems in using the software or data and to reproduce the data if necessary.
