1. What is GetOutside?
The ‘GetOutside’ initiative was founded by Ordnance Survey, Great Britain’s national mapping agency, to help more people to get outside more often. We firmly believe that an active outdoor lifestyle helps you live longer, stay younger and enjoy life more.
The GetOutside mobile application (referred to simply as the Licensed App) is designed to help you discover the best that Britain has to offer, to give you inspiration for a wide range of activities available nearby and provide enough information for those activities to be enjoyable, accessible and safe.
The Licensed App is one of a number of different consumer apps (web and mobile), websites, social media sites and an online retail shop operated by Ordnance Survey. We refer to these collectively as the OS Sites and/or Services.
‘GetOutside’ is for everyone, just as the outdoors is for everyone.

The disclaimers and limitations of liability in this paragraph 13 do not apply to your Non-Excludable Rights, including those set out in paragraph 15 below.
The Licensed App delivers digital content which is created / owned by OS; content which has been created by, supplied and licensed to us by third party providers; and User Generated Content.
We have taken reasonable steps to ensure that the mapping, walking and cycling routes and other digital content created by us and used in the Licensed App is as accurate and as up to date as possible. However, it is possible that the content may contain errors, be incomplete or out of date. Please see paragraph 15 below which sets out the extent of our liability in respect to this digital content.
We do not check the accuracy, feasibility or safety of any User Generated Content (whether originating in this Licensed App or our other Os sites and Services) or any content supplied by third parties. The views expressed in any User Generated Content or any routes supplied by third parties are those of individual contributors and not necessarily those of OS. It is possible that the information found in User Generated Content and routes supplied by third parties contains errors, or is incomplete, or out of date. Please see paragraph 15 which sets out the extent of our liability in respect of this digital content.
The Licensed App has not been developed to meet your individual requirements. Please check that the facilities and functions of the Licensed App (as described on the App stores and in our documentation) meet your requirements.
The content delivered on the Licensed App is used at your own risk. It is not intended to amount to instructions or formal advice on outdoor activity participation, difficulty levels, risk assessment or health and safety, on which you should rely. You should always exercise your independent judgment when using content from the Licensed App.
Any times shown for walking, running or cycling routes will be rough estimates. These estimates assume that you are reasonably fit and travelling on typical terrain in normal conditions. Please make sure that you estimate your own route time making allowances for your own circumstances.
For safe outdoor activity and navigation, you should make your own risk assessment taking into consideration your personal experience, knowledge and capability; and the physical environment. We recommend that you allow a reasonable margin for error. You should take particular care in poor visibility and other poor weather conditions. The content in the Licensed App is not intended to replace the information presented in your physical environment such as local hazard signage or the Highway Code and the Licensed App should not be relied on when this is in conflict.
We cannot guarantee the ongoing supply of any content sourced from third parties, including certain points of interest and leisure route information, and we may alter the third party content we provide via the Licensed App at any time.
14. Availability of the Licensed App
The disclaimers and limitations of liability in this paragraph 14 do not apply to your Non-Excludable Rights, including those set out in paragraph 15 below.
We cannot guarantee that the Licensed App will always be available or uninterrupted.
We will always try to notify users of downtime in advance. However, we may have to suspend, withdraw, discontinue or change all or any part of the Licensed App without notice where it is necessary to do so on an urgent basis, for example to comply with a legal requirement, or to conduct emergency maintenance to protect the security and integrity of the Licensed App.
In addition to the above, as we are constantly enhancing the Licensed App we reserve the right to suspend access in order to make technical adjustments, fix errors, improve features or make minor changes from time to time.
Some functionality of the Licensed App requires WiFi, internet, Bluetooth and/or GPS coverage. Where the Licensed App or any of its features are unavailable due to issues with these networks, we are not liable for this loss of functionality. We recommend that you download the mapping and routes to use offline to overcome any problems with them being unavailable due to network issues.
We also recommend that you back up any content and data used in connection with the Licensed App, to protect yourself in case of problems with the Licensed App.
We do not guarantee that the Licensed App is available or accessible on all devices, wifi, internet, Bluetooth, mobile or other connections. You are responsible for ensuring that your device meets the minimum operating requirements.
We cannot guarantee that the Licensed App, or the servers that makes it available are free from viruses or bugs. It is your responsibility to implement any procedures and virus checks to satisfy your own requirements.

If defective digital content that we have supplied in connection with the Licensed App damages a device or digital content belonging to you and this is caused by our failure to use reasonable care and skill, we may limit our liability to either repairing the damage or paying you compensation (subject to a cap of £75). However, we will not be liable for damage that you could have avoided by following our advice to apply an update to the Licensed App offered to you free of charge or for damage that was caused by you failing to correctly follow installation instructions or to have in place any minimum system requirements advised by us.
The Licensed App is being provided to you free of charge and for personal and non-commercial use. Our liability under or in connection with this EULA and the provision and receipt of the Licensed App is therefore excluded to the maximum extent permitted by law; with the exception of liability arising from your Non Excludable Rights or liability for damage to your device or digital content as referred to above.

We expressly disclaim all warranties, conditions, statutory rights and implied terms that we are able to exclude under applicable law. Certain jurisdictions do not allow for the exclusion of certain warranties. To the extent such exclusions are specifically prohibited by applicable law, some exclusions may not apply to you.
The waiver on a particular occasion by either party of rights under this EULA does not imply that other rights will be waived.
No delay in exercising any right under this EULA shall constitute a waiver of such right.
