Hamilton App: Terms of Use

Hamilton Uptown Limited Liability Company (“Hamilton,” “we” or “us”) welcomes you.  We are excited that you have decided to use and access our mobile application for Hamilton: An American Musical (the “App”). 

We have drafted these terms of use (the “Terms of Use”) so you will know the rules that govern our relationship with you. Please read these Terms of Use carefully. By accessing and using the App, you agree to be legally bound by the terms and conditions of these Terms of Use. If you do not agree to be bound by any of these Terms of Use, then please do not use the App.

There may be times when we offer a special feature (such as the digital lottery) that has its own terms and conditions that apply in addition to these Terms of Use. In those cases, the terms specific to the special feature control to the extent there is a conflict with these Terms of Use.

We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to change these Terms of Use at any time, and will publish a revised version of these Terms of Use on the App.  You are responsible for regularly reviewing these Terms of Use.  Continued access to and use of the App following any such change means you accept and will abide by the changes.

ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND US MUST BE RESOLVED BY INDIVIDUAL BINDING ARBITRATION.  PLEASE READ THE ARBITRATION PROVISION IN THESE TERMS AS IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS UNDER THIS CONTRACT.

Use of the App

You must be at least 13 years old to use the App. We may also offer additional services, such as the digital lottery (see the official rules of the digital lottery), that require you to be even older to use them. The App is for your personal, noncommercial use and is intended for informational and entertainment purposes only. 

In addition to other specific prohibitions set forth in these Terms of Use, you are prohibited from engaging in the following activities:

  • Reselling use of, or access to, the App or any content contained therein to any third party.
  • Using spiders, robots, data mining techniques or other automated devices or programs to catalog, download or otherwise reproduce, store or distribute content available on the App.
  • Circumventing or disabling any content protection system or digital rights management technology used by the App.
  • Decompiling, reverse engineering, disassembling or otherwise reducing the App to a human-readable form.
  • Accessing or using the App in an unlawful or unauthorized manner or in a manner that suggests an association with Hamilton. 
  • Removing copyright, trademark or other proprietary notices from content made available on or accessed through the App.
  • Interfering with the proper working of the App.
  • Knowingly or recklessly introducing a virus or other harmful component, or otherwise tampering with, impairing or damaging the App or a connected network, or interfering with any person or entity’s use or enjoyment of the App. 

By acquiring services, content or software through the App, you represent and warrant that your access to and use of the services, content or software will comply with these requirements. You agree that we may immediately terminate your access to the App if you violate these Terms of Use or if we determine, in our sole discretion, that your use of the App is objectionable or is contrary to the intended purposes of the App.

All registration information you submit to Hamilton must be truthful, complete, accurate and up-to-date.  You must maintain the accuracy of that information.  You must not use a false name, use an email address that is owned or controlled by another person or use a name of a person other than yourself without appropriate authorization. You must not create accounts by automated means or under false or fraudulent pretenses. You are responsible for keeping your password confidential and secured.

Accuracy of Service Information

We are not responsible if information on the App is not accurate, complete or correct. The material on the App should not be relied upon or used as the basis for making significant decisions without consulting primary or more accurate, complete or timely sources of information. Any reliance on the material on the App is at your own risk. The App may contain historical information, which historical information necessarily is not current and is provided for your reference only.

Third-Party Services and Content

The App may integrate third-party services and content and may contain links to third-party websites and applications. Functionality on the App may also permit interactions between the App and a third-party website or feature. For example, the App may include a feature that enables you to share content from the App or your content with a third party, which may be publicly posted on that third party’s service or application. Using this functionality typically requires you to login to your account on the third-party service and you do so at your own risk.  We do not own or control these third-party services, websites and applications.  You should read the terms of use agreements and privacy policies that apply to such third-party services, websites and applications.

When you access the App through a mobile network, your network or roaming provider’s messaging, data and other rates and fees will apply. Downloading, installing or using the App may be prohibited or restricted by your network provider and not all services on the App may work with your network provider or device. Contact your carrier with questions regarding these issues.

The App may send you “push notifications” if your device supports such communications. By downloading the App and clicking to allow push notifications, you “opt-in” to receive these push notifications via the App, including notifications that contain commercial messages from Hamilton. Should you wish to stop receiving push notifications via the App, you may turn off these notifications through the applicable settings on your device.

Digital Content

We may make applications, software or other digital content available on the App for you to license for a one-time fee.  Your purchase of digital content is a payment for a limited, non-assignable license to access and use such content or functionality in accordance with the App. We may modify or discontinue digital content at any time.

When you provide payment information, you represent and warrant that the information is accurate, that you are authorized to use the payment method provided, and that you will notify us of changes to the payment information.  We reserve the right to utilize third party credit card updating services to obtain current expiration dates on credit cards.

We may revise the pricing for all products and services offered on the App.  

No Warranties

THE APP, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ALL CONTENT MADE AVAILABLE ON OR ACCESSED THROUGH THE APP, IS PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE,” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. FURTHER, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, WE DISCLAIM ANY AND ALL EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, NON-INFRINGEMENT, TITLE, CUSTOM, TRADE, MERCHANTABILITY, QUIET ENJOYMENT, AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. WE DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE FUNCTIONS CONTAINED IN THE APP OR ANY MATERIALS OR CONTENT CONTAINED THEREIN WILL BE COMPLETELY SECURE, UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR FREE, THAT DEFECTS WILL BE CORRECTED, OR THAT THE APP OR THE SERVER THAT MAKES IT AVAILABLE IS FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS.

Limitation of Liability

IN NO EVENT WILL WE BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, UNDER ANY THEORY OF TORT, CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, ECONOMIC, EXEMPLARY, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL LOSSES OR DAMAGES, LOST PROFITS, LOST DATA, LOST OPPORTUNITIES, COSTS OF COVER, OR PERSONAL INJURY/WRONGFUL DEATH) THAT ARE DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY RELATED TO: (A) THE APP; (B) ANY CONTENT OR THIRD PARTY SERVICE THAT IS INTEGRATED INTO THE APP OR MADE AVAILABLE ON THE APP; OR (C) YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF, OR INABILITY TO ACCESS OR USE, THE APP.

If any part of the warranty disclaimers or limitations of liability in these Terms of Use is found to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason or if we are otherwise found to be liable to you in any manner, then our aggregate liability for all claims under such circumstances for liabilities, shall not exceed one hundred dollars ($100.00).

Indemnity

You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Hamilton, its officers, directors, employees, business partners and agents, from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debt, and expenses (including but not limited to attorney’s fees) arising out of or in connection with any of the following: (a) your breach of these Terms of Use; (b) your access to or use of the App; (c) your violation of any third-party right, including without limitation any intellectual property right, publicity, confidentiality, property or privacy right, or any agreement or terms with a third party to which you are subject; (d) your violation of any laws, rules, regulations, codes, statutes, ordinances or orders of any governmental and quasi-governmental authorities, including, without limitation, all regulatory, administrative and legislative authorities; or (e) any misrepresentation made by you. You will cooperate as fully required by Hamilton in the defense of any claim. We reserve the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter subject to indemnification by you, and you may not in any event settle any claim without our prior written consent.

Submissions and Unsolicited Ideas Policies

Hamilton does not accept any unsolicited ideas from users. Therefore, you must not submit any such unsolicited materials. If, notwithstanding this policy, you submit an unsolicited idea or content to us, you understand and acknowledge that such idea or content is not submitted in confidence and we assume no obligation, expressed or implied, by considering or using it. You agree to waive any claim against Hamilton or its assignees regarding misappropriation of your ideas or content submitted in violation of this paragraph.

Third Party Beneficiary

If you access the App using an Android, Apple iOS or Microsoft Windows-powered device, Google, Inc., Apple Inc. or Microsoft Corporation, respectively, shall be a third-party beneficiary to this contract.  This means these parties will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce the terms of this contract against you as a third-party beneficiary thereof. However, these third-party beneficiaries are not a party to this contract and are not responsible for the provision or support of the App.  You agree that your access to the App using these devices also shall be subject to the usage terms set forth in the applicable third-party beneficiary’s terms of service. You should read the terms of use agreements and privacy policies that apply to such third-party beneficiary’s services and content.

Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver

You and Hamilton agree to arbitrate all disputes between you and Hamilton or its affiliates, except disputes relating to the enforcement of Hamilton or its affiliates’ intellectual property rights.  Under such circumstances, we may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the App, or intellectual property infringement (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described below.

In the event of a dispute, you or Hamilton must send to the other party a notice of dispute, which is a written statement that sets forth the name, address and contact information of the party giving the notice, the facts giving rise to the dispute and the relief requested.  You must send any notice of dispute to Hamilton Uptown Limited Liability Company c/o Baseline Theatrical, 1501 Broadway, 24th Floor, New York, NY 10036, Attention: Legal/Arbitration Notice.  We will send any notice of dispute to you at the contact information we have for you. You and Hamilton will attempt to resolve a dispute through informal negotiation within sixty (60) days from the date the notice of dispute is sent.  After sixty (60) days, you or we may commence arbitration.  You may also litigate a dispute in small claims court if the dispute meets the requirements to be heard in small claims court, whether or not you negotiated informally first.

If you and Hamilton do not resolve a dispute by informal negotiation or in small claims court, the dispute shall be settled by binding arbitration before a neutral arbitrator whose decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act.  The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures and in accordance with the Expedited Procedures in those Rules or pursuant to JAMS' Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures. If there is a conflict between JAMS Rules and the rules set forth in these Terms of Use, the rules set forth in these Terms of Use will govern. The JAMS Rules and instructions for how to initiate an arbitration are available from JAMS at http://www.jamsadr.com or 1-800-352-5267. 

Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the JAMS Rules. Each party will bear their own costs of arbitration unless the arbitrator directs that bearing such costs would be an undue burden and in that case, we will pay for your portion of the arbitration administrative costs (but not your attorneys’ fees). Arbitration under this contract shall be held in the United States in the borough of Manhattan, New York, New York, United States of America, without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. If travelling to the borough of Manhattan, New York, New York, United States of America, is a burden, you may participate in the arbitration by phone or via document submission to the fullest extent allowable by the arbitrator. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.

The arbitrator will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and Hamilton, and the dispute will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the JAMS Rules, and these Terms of Use. The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and us.

You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations are not allowed.

THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY, instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration, except as otherwise expressly set forth herein. In the event any litigation should arise between you and us in any state or federal court in a suit to vacate or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, YOU AND HAMILTON WAIVE ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, instead electing that the dispute be resolved by a judge. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE BEEN ADVISED THAT YOU MAY CONSULT WITH AN ATTORNEY IN DECIDING TO ACCEPT THIS CONTRACT TO ARBITRATE.

Choice of Forum

You agree that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to these Terms of Use or the App that is not subject to arbitration shall be filed, and that venue properly lies, only in the state or federal courts located in the borough of Manhattan, New York, New York, United States of America and you consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of litigating such action.

Choice of Law

These terms are governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York and the laws of the United States, without giving effect to any conflict of law principles.

Severability

If any provision of these terms shall be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

Survival

The provisions of these terms which by their nature should survive the termination of these terms shall survive such termination.

Waiver

No waiver of any provision of these terms by us shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such provision or any other provision, and our failure to assert any right or provision under these terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

These Terms of Use are effective as of August 29, 2017.
