OpenRoaming End User Terms and Condition
OpenRoaming (“OpenRoaming” or the “Service”) allows users (“End User” or “you”) to seamlessly log into participating providers’ Wi-Fi networks via an OpenRoaming profile that will be downloaded to your compatible device. OpenRoaming Participants consist of (i) Access Providers (“APs”, each an “AP”), who own one or more OpenRoaming enabled Wi-Fi network, and (ii) Identity Providers (“IDPs,” each an “IDP”), who authenticate each End User through exchange of certificates with the relevant AP, allowing access to the all participating OpenRoaming networks. For clarity, the Service does not include those services APs and/or IDPs may provide to you outside the context of OpenRoaming and includes only the authentication facilitation process provided by Cisco Systems, Inc. (“Cisco”). This End User Terms and Conditions set forth the legally binding terms governing your use of the Service.
You acknowledge that Cisco reserves the right to suspend or terminate the Service without notice. Participants of OpenRoaming are independent contractors. No participant is an agent, representative, or partner to any other participant. No participant shall have any right, power, or authority to enter into any agreement for, or on behalf of, or incur any obligation or liability of, or to otherwise bind, any other participant. OpenRoaming does not constitute a joint venture or partnership among any of the participants.
Subject to the terms of this Agreement and during the term of this Agreement, Cisco hereby grants you a non-exclusive, non-assignable, non-transferable, terminable right to install and use the software provided to you by Cisco as part of the Service solely for your own personal use. The software may contain open source software, subject to separate license terms.
LIMITATIONS AND RESTRICTIONS
Unless expressly authorized by Cisco in writing, you may not (a) transfer, sublicense, or assign your rights under this Agreement to any other person; (ii) modify, adapt or create derivative works of the software or the Service; (iii) reverse engineer, decompile, decrypt, disassemble or otherwise attempt to derive the source code for the software or the Service; (iv) sell, resell, or otherwise make the functionality of the software or the Service available to third parties; or (v) remove, modify, or conceal any product identification, copyright, proprietary, intellectual property notices or other marks on or in the Service or the software.
Cisco or its licensors retain ownership of all intellectual property rights in and to the Service and its software, and any other technology, services, or materials that Cisco may provide to you through or in conjunction with the Service, including copies, improvements, enhancements, derivative works and modifications to the foregoing. Your rights to use the Service and software are limited to those expressly granted by this Agreement. No other rights with respect to the Service and software or any related intellectual property rights are granted or implied. You authorize Cisco to use feedback and ideas you provide in connection with your use of the Service for any purpose without further obligation.
You will abide by the terms and conditions of each OpenRoaming Participant, including terms and conditions that prohibit interference with the Service and/or the services provided by each of the OpenRoaming Participants.
WARRANTY AND DISCLAIMERS
You understand and agree that the Internet may contain offensive and/or harmful material, in some cases under descriptions that have been mislabeled or are otherwise deceptive. Further, you understand and agree that the Internet does not provide a secure end-to-end service and that you should not rely on the encryption delivered by the Service for providing security of services accessed using OpenRoaming APs. Neither Cisco nor OpenRoaming Participants shall be responsible for any damages suffered by you and/or any person as a result of obtaining Internet access.
NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING ELSE IN THIS AGREEMENT, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE SERVICE IS PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS, AND CISCO AND OPENROAMING PARTICIPANTS DISCLAIM AND MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES AND THERE ARE NO CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY WARRANTIES OF NON-INTERFERENCE, MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR USE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, OR ARISING FROM COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE. YOU ASSUME ALL RESPONSIBILITY AND RISK FOR USE OF THE SERVICE. ANY STATEMENTS MADE IN ANY WRITTEN OR ELECTRONIC DOCUMENTS, OR BY ANY CISCO EMPLOYEES, REPRESENTATIVES, OR AGENTS, ARE PROVIDED FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY AND NOT AS REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND.
NEITHER CISCO NOR OPENROAMING PARTICIPANTS WARRANT THAT SERVICE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, ERROR FREE, OR FREE FROM SERVICE DEGRADATION, OR THAT ANY INFORMATION, SOFTWARE, OR OTHER MATERIAL ACCESSIBLE ON THE SERVICE ARE FREE FROM VIRUSES, WORMS, TROJAN HORSES, OR OTHER CODE THAT MANIFESTS CONTAMINATING, INTERFERING, OR DESTRUCTIVE PROPERTIES. NEITHER CISCO NOR OPENROAMING PARTICIPANTS GUARANTEE THE SECURITY OR INTEGRITY OF DATA TRANSMISSION OR STORAGE, OR THAT VIRUSES, WORMS, TROJAN HORSES, OR OTHER CODE THAT MANIFESTS CONTAMINATING OR DESTRUCTIVE PROPERTIES WILL BE DETECTED OR REMEDIATED BY THE SERVICE. SERVICE IS ONLY AVAILABLE WITHIN THE COVERAGE AREA OF AN OPENROAMING PARTICIPANT’S NETWORK, WHICH IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT SERVICE MAY BE TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE FOR MAINTENANCE, EQUIPMENT MODIFICATIONS, OR UPGRADES, AND FOR OTHER REASONS WITHIN AND WITHOUT THE DIRECT CONTROL OF CISCO OR OPENROAMING PARTICIPANTS.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.
WHEN PERMITTED BY LAW, CISCO, OPENROAMING PARTICIPANTS AND THEIR RESPECTIVE SUPPLIERS AND DISTRIBUTORS, WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST PROFITS, REVENUES, OR DATA, FINANCIAL LOSSES OR INDIRECT, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES.
TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE TOTAL LIABILITY OF CISCO, OPENROAMING PARTICIPANTS AND ITS SUPPLIERS AND DISTRIBUTORS, FOR ANY CLAIMS UNDER THESE TERMS, INCLUDING FOR ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES, IS LIMITED TO $10.
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Cisco, the OpenRoaming Participants, and their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, successors and assigns from and against any loss, liability or claim, including claim for reasonable attorney’s fees, brought by any third party and arising from (a) your infringement of any third party’s copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret or other proprietary rights or rights of publicity or privacy through use of the Service; (b) your violation of any applicable law, statute, ordinance or regulation when using the Service; or (c) material breach of this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any claim is one of multiple claims in a lawsuit against Cisco and/or its affiliates, some of which claims may not be subject to the foregoing obligations, Cisco may elect to solely control the defence of the claim, in which event You agree to provide reasonable assistance and remain responsible for Your proportionate share of the damages, liabilities, settlements, costs and expenses relating to such claim attributable to You.
TERM AND TERMINATION
Either party may terminate this Agreement at any time for convenience. You agree to discontinue your use of the Service immediately upon notification of termination. Any termination of this Agreement may mean the permanent deletion of data you provided to Cisco or other participants of OpenRoaming, and you agree that Cisco shall have no liability for any such termination.
This Agreement, and any disputes arising out of or related hereto, will be governed exclusively by the applicable governing law of the State of California, without regard to conflicts of laws rules. The Superior Court of California, County of Santa Clara, or Federal Courts of the Northern District of California, as applicable, will be the applicable venue and will have exclusive jurisdiction to adjudicate any dispute arising out of or relating to this Agreement or its formation, interpretation or enforcement. Each party hereby consents and submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts.
These Terms and Conditions may be updated from time to time in Cisco’s sole discretion without notice to you. Similarly, any AP or IDP terms and conditions or privacy policies may be updated from time to time without notice to you. You, Cisco and each participant of OpenRoaming each will comply with all applicable laws and regulations governing use of the Services (including privacy and export control laws) and will obtain all required local and extraterritorial authorizations, permits or licenses. We may assign any of our rights or delegate any of our obligations under these Terms and Conditions in our sole discretion. We may also subcontract the performance of the Service to third parties. Any such subcontract will not relieve Cisco of any of its obligations under these Terms and Conditions. You may not assign these Terms and Conditions, the use of the Service, or your rights and obligations under these Terms and Conditions without the prior written consent of Cisco. Any assignment in violation of this clause shall be void. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, that provision will either be deemed modified to the minimum extent necessary to render it enforceable, or else disregarded. In either case, the remaining provisions shall continue in full force and effect.
