SMTT DEVELOPER LICENSE AGREEMENT
The Southern Maine Transit Tracker Partners (the “Licensor” or “SMTT”), utilizes a real-time automated vehicle location system to track the location of SMTT vehicles and uses this data to populate a tracking service providing estimated arrival time for SMTT vehicles (the “SMTT Transit Tracker”). SMTT hereby grants you (“Licensee”) non-exclusive, limited and revocable rights to use, reproduce, and redistribute SMTT Transit Tracker data subject to the following terms and conditions:
This license is limited to uses that utilize the data for assisting mass transportation (bus or rail) riders.
All right, title and interest to any copyrights, patents or other intellectual property rights embodied in the SMTT Transit Tracker including but not limited to, any new or useful art, discovery, improvement, technical development or invention, whether or not patentable, and all related know-how, designs, mask works, trademarks, formulae, processes, trade secrets, ideas, artworks, software or other copyrightable or patentable work, are SMTT’s sole and exclusive property, except for any pre-existing rights belonging to a third party, which remain solely and exclusively the property of that party.
Identification of SMTT Information
Licensee shall have the option, but not the obligation, to credit the Southern Maine Transit Tracker Partners for the SMTT Transit Tracker data. If Licensee so chooses, the credit line should be placed as close to the actual SMTT Transit Tracker information as reasonably possible. Any such credit line should read either: (1) “Data provided by SMTT Transit Tracker” or (2) “Source: SMTT Transit Tracker”.

Licensee agrees that the SMTT Transit Tracker is provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis. SMTT disclaims all warranties, express or implied, including but not limited to implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, accuracy or non-infringement. Licensee agrees its use of SMTT Transit Tracker and its data is at Licensee’s sole risk. For purposes of this Agreement, SMTT Transit Tracker and its data includes any data and/or information derived from any electronically transferred data and/or information received by Licensee from SMTT for purposes of SMTT Transit Tracker.

SMTT reserves the right to alter, correct or modify SMTT Transit Tracker at any time without prior notice to Licensee.
Licensee agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless SMTT and its officers, directors, and employees from and against all fines, suits, proceedings, claims, causes of action, demands, or liabilities of any kind or of any natures arising out of or in connection with Licensee’s use of SMTT Transit Tracker.

The terms of this Agreement shall be binding upon the Licensee and the SMTT. None of the rights, duties or obligations under this Agreement may be assigned without the express written consent of the SMTT. Once properly assigned, in accordance with the rules and regulations of each party, this Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the successors and assigns of the parties as if they were parties of this Agreement.
To the extent a court of competent jurisdiction determines that any part or provision of this Agreement is unenforceable as a matter of law, such part or provision of this Agreement will be deemed severable and the remainder of this Agreement shall survive and remain enforceable.
Applicable Law and Forum
The laws of the SMTT’s local jurisdiction will govern all rights and obligations under this Agreement, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of laws. Any use of the SMTT Transit Tracker shall be deemed made in the SMTT’s local jurisdiction regardless of the location of the Licensee. The Licensee agrees that any dispute with the SMTT arising out of any use of the SMTT Transit Tracker or this Agreement shall be brought by the Licensee exclusively in the state or federal courts situated in the SMTT’s local jurisdiction. The Licensee hereby agrees that such venue is appropriate.
The Licensee and the SMTT will at all times observe and comply with all applicable laws, ordinances, rules, regulations and executive orders of Federal, state and local government entities, now existing or hereinafter in effect, which may in any manner affect the performance of this Agreement. Provision(s) required by law, ordinances, rules, regulations or executive orders to be inserted herein will be deemed inserted herein whether or not they appear in this Agreement or, upon application by either party, this Agreement will forthwith be amended to literally make such insertion; however, in no event will failure to insert such provision(s) prevent the enforcement of this Agreement.
This Agreement constitutes the complete and exclusive agreement between SMTT and Licensee with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior oral or written understandings, communications, or agreements not specifically incorporated herein. SMTT reserves the right to modify or revoke this Agreement at any time.
Waiver by SMTT of strict performances of any provision of this Agreement will not be a waiver of or prejudice SMTT’s right to require strict performance of the same provision in the future or of any other provision of this Agreement.
No provision of this Agreement, nor any act of the Licensee, or the SMTT shall be deemed or construed by either of the parties, or by third persons, to create any relationship of third party beneficiary, or of principal or agent, or of limited or general partnership, or of joint venture, or of any association or relationship involving the Licensee and the SMTT.
