This End User License Agreement (“EULA”) between ESRT Observatory TRS, L.L.C. and its affiliates (“ESRT,” “we,” “our” or “us”) and you (“you,” “your” or “user”) governs your use and enjoyment of the Destination MidtownTM application (“App”).
BY DOWNLOADING, INSTALLING, OR OTHERWISE ACCESSING OR USING THE APP, YOU AGREE THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTOOD, AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THIS EULA. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE, YOU MAY NOT USE THE APP.
THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS MUTUAL ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER PROVISIONS, WHICH YOU SHOULD REVIEW BELOW.
The App is licensed, not sold, to you for use only under the terms herein. ESRT is the owner of the App at all times. ESRT reserves all rights not expressly granted to you.
Subject to your compliance with the terms herein, this license granted to you for the App by ESRT is limited to a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicenseable license to use the App on any mobile device that you own or control and as permitted herein. This license does not allow you to use the App on any mobile device that you do not own or control, and you may not distribute or make the App available over a network where it could be used by multiple devices at the same time. You may not rent, lease, lend, sell, redistribute or sublicense the App. You may not copy (except as expressly permitted herein), decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble, attempt to derive the source code of, modify, or create derivative works of the App, any updates, or any part thereof (except as and only to the extent any foregoing restriction is prohibited by applicable law or to the extent as may be permitted by the licensing terms governing use of any open sourced components included with the App). Any attempt to do so is a violation of ESRT’s and its licensors’ rights. If you breach this restriction, you may be subject to prosecution and damages. The terms of the license will govern any upgrades provided by ESRT that replace and/or supplement the original App, unless such upgrade is accompanied by a separate license in which case the terms of that license will govern.
The license is effective until terminated by ESRT, which may be done with or without cause and with or without notice. Your rights under this license will terminate automatically without notice from ESRT if you fail to comply with any term(s) of this license. Upon termination of the license, you shall cease all use of the App, and destroy all copies, full or partial, of the App. Termination of your access or use will not waive or affect any other right or relief to which ESRT may be entitled at law or in equity.
The App may enable access to ESRT and third party services, web sites and servers (collectively and individually, “Services”). Use of the Services may require Internet access and that you accept additional terms of service.
You understand that by using any of the Services, you may encounter content that may be deemed offensive, indecent, or objectionable, which content may or may not be identified as having explicit language, and that the results of any search or entering of a particular URL may automatically and unintentionally generate links or references to objectionable material. Nevertheless, you agree to use the Services at your sole risk and that ESRT shall not have any liability to you for content that may be found to be offensive, indecent, or objectionable.
Certain Services may display, include or make available content, data, information, applications or materials from third parties (“Third Party Materials”) or provide links to certain third party web sites. By using the Services, you acknowledge and agree that ESRT is not responsible for examining or evaluating the content, accuracy, completeness, timeliness, validity, copyright compliance, legality, decency, quality or any other aspect of such Third Party Materials or web sites. ESRT does not warrant or endorse and does not assume and will not have any liability or responsibility to you or any other person for any third-party Services, Third Party Materials or web sites, or for any other materials, products, or services of third parties. Third Party Materials and links to other web sites are provided solely as a convenience to you. Financial and other information displayed by any Services is for general informational purposes only and is not intended to be relied upon for any purposes. Location data provided by any Services is for basic navigational purposes only and is not intended to be relied upon in situations where precise location information is needed or where erroneous, inaccurate or incomplete location data may lead to death, personal injury, property or environmental damage. Neither ESRT, nor any of its content providers, guarantees the availability, accuracy, completeness, reliability, or timeliness of stock information or location data displayed by any Services.
You agree that any Services contain proprietary content, information and material that is protected by applicable intellectual property and other laws, including but not limited to copyright, and that you will not use such proprietary content, information or materials in any way whatsoever except for permitted use of the Services. No portion of the Services may be reproduced in any form or by any means.
You agree not to modify, rent, lease, loan, sell, distribute, or create derivative works based on the Services, in any manner, and you shall not exploit the Services in any unauthorized way whatsoever, including but not limited to, by trespass or burdening network capacity. You further agree not to use the Services in any manner to harass, abuse, stalk, threaten, defame or otherwise infringe or violate the rights of any other party, and that ESRT is not in any way responsible for any such use by you, nor for any harassing, threatening, defamatory, offensive or illegal messages or transmissions that you may receive as a result of using any of the Services.
Services and Third Party Materials that may be accessed from, displayed on or linked to from the App are not available in all languages or in all countries. ESRT makes no representation that such Services and Third Party Materials are appropriate or available for use in any particular location. To the extent you choose to access such Services or Third Party Materials, you do so at your own initiative and are responsible for compliance with any applicable laws, including but not limited to applicable local laws. ESRT, and its licensors, reserve the right to change, suspend, remove, or disable access to any Services at any time without notice. In no event will ESRT be liable for the removal of or disabling of access to any such Services.
UNAUTHORIZED USE OF THE APP AND SERVICES IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED.
You can only use this App and Services if you are over 13 years old, it is legal for you to use the App and Services, and you are legally capable of entering into a binding contract. Minors under the age of 18 must obtain parental consent to use this App and Services.
You agree that your use of the App and Services will be in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, and that you will not use, or knowingly allow any other person to use, the App or Services for or in connection with, any illegal purpose or activity.
You may not use any hardware or software intended to damage or interfere with the proper working of the App or Services or to surreptitiously intercept any system, data or personal information from the App or Services.

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE APP AND ANY SERVICES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE”, WITH ALL FAULTS AND WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, AND APPLICATION PROVIDER HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS WITH RESPECT TO THE LICENSED APPLICATION AND ANY SERVICES, EITHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES AND/OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, OF SATISFACTORY QUALITY, OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OF ACCURACY, OF QUIET ENJOYMENT, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD PARTY RIGHTS. APPLICATION PROVIDER DOES NOT WARRANT AGAINST INTERFERENCE WITH YOUR ENJOYMENT OF THE LICENSED APPLICATION, THAT THE FUNCTIONS CONTAINED IN, OR SERVICES PERFORMED OR PROVIDED BY, THE APP WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS, THAT THE OPERATION OF THE APP OR SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE, OR THAT DEFECTS IN THE APP OR SERVICES WILL BE CORRECTED. NO ORAL OR WRITTEN INFORMATION OR ADVICE GIVEN BY ESRT OR ITS AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE SHALL CREATE A WARRANTY. SHOULD THE APP OR SERVICES PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE ENTIRE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR LIMITATIONS ON APPLICABLE STATUTORY RIGHTS OF A CONSUMER, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSION AND LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
TO THE EXTENT NOT PROHIBITED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL ESRT BE LIABLE FOR PERSONAL INJURY, OR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION OR ANY OTHER COMMERCIAL DAMAGES OR LOSSES, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO YOUR USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE APP, HOWEVER CAUSED, REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OF LIABILITY (CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE) AND EVEN IF ESRT HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR PERSONAL INJURY, OR OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THIS LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
In no event shall ESRT’s total liability to you for all damages (other than as may be required by applicable law in cases involving personal injury) that exceed the amount of twenty-five dollars ($25.00 USD). The foregoing limitations will apply even if the above stated remedy fails of its essential purpose.
