CAROUSEL PLAYER LICENSE AGREEMENT
This Tightrope Carousel Player License Agreement (the “License”) governs the use of the Carousel Player Application (the “Application”). The Application is owned, developed, and maintained by Tightrope Media Systems, Inc., a Minnesota corporation with its principal office in Minneapolis, Minnesota, U.S.A. (“Tightrope,” “we,” “our,”) and its licensors.
PLEASE READ THIS LICENSE CAREFULLY. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ITS TERMS, YOU ARE NOT AUTHORIZED TO USE THE APPLICATION.
Capitalized terms that are defined in this License, such as “Application” or “User,” have the specific definitions given to them whenever they are used in this License.
Tightrope provides the Application to end users (the “User,” “you,” “your”) for use with its Carousel 7 and Carousel Cloud software products. The Application supports multiple display devices and software platforms, such as the BrightSign, Windows, AppleTV, and Apple iPad devices and software. Tightrope is regularly expanding the supported devices and software platforms and the latest information can be obtained via the Carousel website.
Tightrope distributes the Application directly and via third party distributors such as the Apple TV® App Store® (the “Third Party Distributors”). This License is only between Tightrope and the User, and not the User and any Third Party Distributor, such as the Apple, Inc., the owner of the Apple TV App Store. The User is responsible for complying with the terms and conditions, license agreements, or policies that Third Party Distributors may require the User to accept as a condition of downloading and using the Application and other applications provided by them.
Tightrope, and not its Third Party Distributors, is solely responsible for the features, functionality, quality, and all other attributes of the Application.
Use of the Application constitutes acceptance of this License. This License will continue in force and effect for as long as you use the Application unless we inform you otherwise. We reserve the right to change the License at any time in our sole business discretion. We will make reasonable efforts to notify Users of changes to the License via the Application interface.
The Application may offer video playing functionality via a YouTube API. If you access or use this video functionality, you agree to be bound by the current YouTube Terms of Service (https://www.youtube.com/t/terms). Please read the YouTube Terms of Service carefully and make sure you understand them. If you do not understand such terms, or do not accept any part of them, then you may not use the YouTube functionality.
The Application enables Users to display digital signage content from the Carousel Cloud or Carousel 7 software platforms (the “Carousel Platforms”). The first time you use this Application, you must designate the location of a specific Carousel Platform installation (a “Carousel Site”) using an IP address, URL, or Carousel Cloud site name. By designating a Carousel Site for this Application, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to access and view content on that Carousel Site.
Tightrope grants you a limited, non-transferable right to download, copy, install, and use the Application on any number of electronic devices (“Electronic Device”) for use with the Carousel Platforms. You may not use the Application on any Electronic Device that you do not own and control. Applications distributed by the Apple App Store or another Apple-owned site may only be used on Apple-branded Electronic Devices.
The Application is not intended for use by anyone under age 18. By registering to use the Application, you represent and warrant that you are age 18 or older. You may not use the Application if you are barred from doing so under the laws of the United States or other country, including the country of your permanent residence or from which you use the Application.
You must accept certain usage restrictions as a condition of using the Application. These restrictions enable us to retain control over the Application and make it consistently available to all of our Users.
You may not attempt to access or use the Application in any way other than through the standard interface. You may not attempt to rent, license, sublicense, sell, resell, transfer, assign, distribute or otherwise commercially exploit or make the Application available to any third party. You may not use another software program or other technology to interoperate with, extract data or content from, or scrape or frame any data or content from the Application. You may not copy, modify, or create derivative works of the Application, either on your own or through any third party. You may not attempt to produce a source listing, decompile, disassemble, or otherwise reverse engineer the Application.
You may not interfere with or disrupt the use or performance of the Application by other users. Do not attempt to gain unauthorized access to any data stored in the Application.
You may not remove or obscure any notices or markings, including without limitation, copyright, trademark, or confidentiality notices, or ownership notices appearing on the Application or any documents or materials associated with the Application.
We reserve the right to terminate your access to and use of the Application immediately and without prior notice to you if you violate the foregoing restrictions on use or otherwise violate this License.
To the extent the Application usage rules in this section conflict with a Third Party Distributor’s applicable legal terms, the Third Party Distributor’s legal terms shall govern.
Tightrope may develop and provide updates to the Application, including error corrections, updates, or new features and functionality (“Updates”). Based on your Electronic Device settings, when your Electronic Device is connected to the Internet either: (1) the Application will automatically download and install all available Updates; or (2) you may receive notice of or be prompted to download and install available Updates.
You agree to promptly download and install all Updates and acknowledge and agree that the Application may not operate properly should you fail to do so. You further agree that all Updates will be deemed part of the Application and be subject to all terms and conditions of this License.
We expect to review and evaluate the functionality of the Application periodically. We may provide Updates in our sole business discretion. Updates may add to, modify, or remove existing functionality or features of the Application. You agree that Tightrope has no obligation to provide any specific Application features or functionality, or Updates.
You acknowledge and agree that the Third Party Distributors have no obligation whatsoever to furnish any Updates, maintenance, or support services for the Application.
You will create a user account upon your first use of the Carousel Platform (a “User Account”) and will be required to designate a username and password. You are responsible for all use of the Carousel Platform happening through your User Account. If you learn of any unauthorized use of your User Account, you should promptly contact Tightrope.
Your username and password may include personal information (the “Personal Information”). When you use this Application in conjunction with the Carousel Platform, we may also collect and use information stored on or provided by your Electronic Device, and we may use various tracking tools to analyze your use of the Application.
By using this Application in conjunction with the Carousel Platform, you represent and warrant that: (1) you are not located in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a “terrorist supporting” country; and (2) you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties.
You acknowledge that Tightrope may contract with third party development, application hosting, data storage or technology infrastructure services providers for purposes of providing the Application functionality (“Technology Contractors”). Tightrope will make reasonable commercial efforts to ensure that the Technology Contractors abide by any applicable terms and conditions of this License. Tightrope is solely responsible for monitoring and supervising the work of the Technology Contractors.
Tightrope retains all ownership and intellectual property rights to the Application that are not specifically granted to Users. We may use any technology, ideas, concepts, know-how, methods, and techniques related to the Application that we learn from Users unless we specifically agree otherwise.
You do not have any intellectual property rights in the Application or any content displayed by it or stored in it other than your Personal Information. You may not use any content from the Application belonging to another user unless you first obtain their permission or are otherwise permitted to do so by law.
Any content owned or provided by other users of the Application is the sole responsibility of such users. We may review user content in our discretion and remove or refuse to display it if we believe that doing so violates the law. Be aware: we do not actively review or monitor content submitted by users, so you view any content displayed by the Application at your own risk.
You acknowledge and agree that, in the event of any claim that your possession or use of Application infringes a third party’s intellectual property rights, Tightrope, and not a Third Party Distributor, shall be solely responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement and discharge of any such claim to the extent required by this License.
The Application displays content provided by third parties, including data, information, applications, and other products, services, and/or materials, and may provide links to third-party applications, websites, or services (“Third-Party Materials”). You acknowledge and agree that Tightrope is not responsible for Third-Party Materials, including their accuracy, completeness, timeliness, validity, copyright compliance, legality, decency, quality, or any other aspect thereof. Tightrope does not assume and will not have any liability or responsibility to you or any other person or entity for any Third-Party Materials. Third-Party Materials are provided solely as a convenience to you, and you access and use them entirely at your own risk and subject to such third parties' terms and conditions.
This License commences when you install the Application and will continue in effect until terminated by you or Tightrope.
You may terminate this License by deleting the Application. Tightrope may terminate this License at any time without notice in its sole discretion. In addition, this License will terminate immediately and automatically without any notice if you violate any of the terms and conditions of this License.
Upon termination, (1) all rights granted to you under this License will terminate; and (2) you must cease using and delete all copies of the Application from your Electronic Device.
Termination will not limit any of Tightrope's rights or remedies at law or in equity.
If you submit comments, ideas, or feedback to us, you agree that we can use them without any restriction or compensation to you. We do not waive any rights to use similar or related ideas or feedback previously known to us, developed by Tightrope, or obtained from sources other than you.
