IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS LICENCE AGREEMENT CAREFULLY BEFORE CONTINUING. BY DOWNLOADING, INSTALLING OR USING A METSERVICE MOBILE APPLICATION YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THIS LICENCE AGREEMENT.

The Meteorological Service of New Zealand Limited ("MetService") End-User License Agreement ("EULA") is a legal agreement between You (either an individual or a single entity) and MetService for the use of MetService’s Mobile Applications on any mobile devices that are compatible with those Applications ("mobile device"), including associated software components, media, printed materials, and online or electronic documentation ("Mobile App"). Any reference in this EULA to a Mobile App must be read as including a reference to data, information and content made available through the Mobile App. By downloading, installing, copying, or otherwise using the Mobile App, you agree to be bound by the terms of this EULA. This EULA represents the entire agreement concerning the Mobile App between you and MetService, and it supersedes any prior proposal, representation, or understanding between the parties. If you do not agree to the terms of this EULA, you must not download, install or use the Mobile App.

MetService (and its licensors) own all intellectual property rights in the Mobile App. The Mobile App is protected by copyright laws and international copyright treaties, as well as other intellectual property laws and treaties. The Mobile App is not sold to You – it is licensed on the terms and conditions of this EULA only.

You must ensure that You use the latest version of the Mobile App.

We may change this EULA at any time by issuing a Mobile App update. If you do not wish to accept the changes, you must terminate this EULA before the changes take effect. By installing the update, you agree to be bound by the changed EULA.

  1. GRANT OF LICENCE.

    The Mobile App is licensed as follows:

    Installation and Use.
    MetService grants you the right to download, install and use the Mobile App on any mobile device you own or control. This licence does not allow You to use the Mobile App on any mobile device that You do not own or control, and You may not distribute or make the Mobile App available to any third party, including, without limit, over a network where it could be used by multiple devices or persons at the same time. The terms of the EULA will govern any upgrades provided by MetService that replace and/or supplement the then current Mobile App, unless such upgrade is accompanied by a separate licence in which case the terms of that licence will apply.

    You may only use the Mobile App for personal use only.
  2. DESCRIPTION OF OTHER RIGHTS AND LIMITATIONS.

    (a) Maintenance of Notices.
    You must not remove or alter any copyright or other notices on the Mobile App.

    (b) Distribution.
    You must not distribute copies of the Mobile App to third parties, including (without limit):
    • making available any data, content or other information from the Mobile App to any third party; or
    • renting, leasing, lending, sublicensing or otherwise making available the Mobile App to any third party.
    (c) Prohibition on Reverse Engineering, Decompilation, and Disassembly.
    You must not reverse engineer, decompile, or disassemble the Mobile App, except and only to the extent that such activity is expressly permitted by applicable law.

    At MetService’s option, MetService may provide You with support services related to the Mobile App ("Support Services"). Any supplemental software code or other material (including documentation related to the Mobile App) provided to You as part of the Support Services shall be considered part of the Mobile App and subject to the terms and conditions of this EULA. Support may be requested by sending an email to: feedback@metservice.com. MetService reserves the right to charge You for the provision of Support Services. MetService may cease to supply Support Services at any time and without notice, provided that You may still contact the email address above with any customer service query.

    (e) Compliance with Applicable Laws.
    You must comply with all applicable laws regarding use of the Mobile App. Without limiting the previous sentence, You must not use the Mobile App (including but not limited to the data, information and content) for any immoral, illegal or other purpose which MetService determines, in its sole opinion, to be objectionable, threatening, abusive, defamatory, harmful (including any purpose which is detrimental to the interests of MetService), or unlawful.

    (f) Consent to Use of Data.
    You agree that MetService may collect and use technical data and related information, including but not limited to technical information about Your mobile device, system and application software, and peripherals, that is gathered periodically to facilitate the provision of software updates, product support and other services to You (if any) related to the Mobile App. MetService may use this information, as long as it is in a form that does not personally identify You, to improve its products or to provide services or technologies to You.

  3. TERMINATION.

    (a) General.
    The EULA is effective until terminated by You or MetService. Without prejudice to any other rights or remedies available to MetService, MetService may terminate this EULA if You fail to comply with the terms and conditions of this EULA. In such event, You must immediately cease to use the Mobile App and destroy all copies of the Mobile App in Your possession. You may only terminate this EULA by ceasing to use the Mobile App and destroying all copies of the Mobile App in your possession. To avoid doubt, termination of this EULA is without prejudice to the rights and obligations of the parties accrued up to and including the date of termination and a party may take action against the other party under this EULA in respect of a breach of the EULA arising prior to the effective date of termination.

    (b) Cessation of supply of Data.
    Without limiting the previous paragraph, MetService, at its sole option, may cease to make available through the Mobile App current and future data, information and content. MetService will use reasonable efforts to provide advance notice of the exercise of this right by posting a notice on MetService’s website. You agree that this satisfies all legal requirements in relation to the notice.
