Terms of Use

Welcome to the Utah Transit Authority ("UTA") Developer website (the "Service" or "Site"). These Terms of Use (“Terms”) govern your access to and use of the Site. The Site is available for your use only on the condition that you and the organization you represent (“You”) agree to the Terms set forth below which may be updated or modified by UTA at any time at its sole discretion. If You do not agree to all the Terms set forth herein, do not access or use the Site or download any material from it. By accessing or using the Site, You consent to be bound by the following Terms.

1. Linking policy–not a public forum

The Site is not a forum for public communication and debate but a means for UTA to provide information relating to UTA data resources, programs, and projects to the public and its customers. All decisions as to the placement of links to external sites or pages from the Site will be made by UTA at its sole discretion. UTA permits links from other websites in accordance with the following conditions:

  • The appearance, position and other aspects of the link may not be such as to damage or dilute the goodwill associated with UTA's name and trademarks or be displayed in any manner that is likely to cause confusion among the public or disparage or discredit UTA;
  • The appearance, position and other attributes of the link may not create the false impression that an organization or entity is sponsored by, affiliated with or associated with UTA or that views expressed on the website are those of UTA. UTA reserves the right to require that the linking website include a notice stating that it is an unofficial website and is not endorsed by, sponsored by or affiliated with UTA and that any views expressed on the website are not those of UTA; and
  • When selected by a user, the link must display the Site full-screen and not within a frame on the linking website.

2. No guaranteed availability

UTA reserves the right at any time and from time to time to modify or discontinue the Service (or any part thereof), temporarily or permanently, with or without notice to You. UTA will not be liable to You for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Service.

UTA, at its sole discretion, may terminate your password, account (or any part thereof) or use of the Service, and remove and discard any content within the Service, for any reason, including, without limitation, UTA’s belief that You have violated or acted inconsistently with these Terms. Any termination of your access to the Service under any provision of these Terms may occur without prior notice to You. UTA will not be liable to You for any termination of your access to the Service. Accessing the Site after termination of your account shall constitute an act of trespass.
