  1. This Licence is made between the person who is using the relevant guide (“Licensee”) and John Ward t/a Racontour Productions (“Licensor”).
  2. The Licensee hereby accepts this Single User Licence (“Licence”) prior to using the relevant guide. Where applicable, refunds shall not be given for failure to do so at the time as sufficiently clear notice was given. By using the guide, the Licensee is agreeing to be bound by the terms set out below.
  3. The Licensee expressly acknowledges and agrees that it is forbidden to interact with a GPS device whilst moving a vehicle, be it cycling or driving, whether it be himself or someone whom he has permitted to drive whilst using the Software on a GPS device and shall desist from doing so until safely parked. The Licensee agrees that any failure to do so shall be entirely at his own risk & expense and he alone shall be wholly liable for any and all consequences thereof to him &/or the permitted driver and any other relevant third parties.
  4. The Licensor shall check to see if the intended GPS device is (1) compatible with a racontour guide, and/or (2) MP3-enabled to play the audio files of racontour prior to download. Where applicable, no refund shall be made for failure to do so. On any racontour, the driver shall expect to hear alerts (& if an MP3-enabled device, audio material as well) when the proximity of a point of interest is reached on such a guide. Prudent driving and full attention should be observed at all times on any racontour guide. On a walking guide, the user is expected to use their own judgement on the safety of a walk’s terrain on that day. Under no circumstances shall the Licensor be liable in the event of injury incurred on such a walk.
  5. All racontour Content or where applicable, Software, including, but not limited to any associated files, text, images and audio (“Content” or ‘Software”), is owned by Licensor (or has been licensed by licensor) and is protected by the Copyright and Related Rights Act, 2000 and associated international copyright legislation.
  6. The Single User Licence grants Licensee the non-exclusive and non-transferable right to install and use the Content on to a single portable device. The Licensor strongly recommends downloading Content in advance in a Wi-Fi zone for walking guides to allow for offline usage. Under no circumstances shall the Licensor be liable for any bills incurred for failure to do so.
  7. The Licensee acknowledges and agrees that the Software provided is in BETA format allowing the Software to undergo usability testing with users where feedback is welcomed, so that any malfunctions these users find in the Software can be reported to Licensor and fixed. The Licensee notes that BETA software can be unstable and could cause data crashes or data loss.
  8. The Licensee shall not reverse engineer, alter, decompile, disassemble, or translate the Software, or otherwise attempt to derive the source code of the Software.
