NOTICE TO USER: THIS IS A CONTRACT. USE

THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT. If you do

erase your copy or return the software to The New Jersey
Business Action Center (BAC) without using or copying
it in any way. The End User is defined any person or
organization receiving these files directly from The
New Jersey Business Action Center. The New Jersey Business
Action Center in the State of New Jersey, Department
of State, grants to the End User a license to use the
software, data and documentation provided the End User
agrees to the following:
I. LIMITED WARRANTY
Notwithstanding the special conditions regarding the
subject data specified in part III of this licensing
agreement, the Business Action Center makes no representations
of any kind, including but not limited to the warranties
of merchantability of fitness for a particular use,
nor are any such warranties to be implied, with respect
to the digital software and data furnished. The Business
Action Center assumes no responsibility to maintain
them in any manner or form.
II TERMS OF AGREEMENT
The Data received from BAC is to be used solely by the
End User and will not be reproduced or redistributed
for use by anyone else, without first obtaining written
permission from BAC.
III SPECIAL CONDITIONS
The planning area delineations, where provided, are
part of the New Jersey State Development and Redevelopment
Plan produced and released by the New Jersey Business
Action Center. The files reflect the delineations as
they appeared on June, 1994. Any map amendments accepted
in the interim are not reflected in these delineations.
The delineations are scheduled for review and revision
every three years.
Due to the complex nature of the State
Development and Redevelopment Plan and the state planning
process and the relationship of all of the individual
parts of the plan, questions regarding the plan should
not be resolved by or even considered using maps alone.
This would provide a limited view of the comprehensive
approach embodied in the plan. For this reason, any
questions relating to the plan or its delineations for
the State should be directed to BAC.
The information has been delivered in
a standard format. BAC assumes no liability for inability
of the End User to use this software or data or for
any financial damages caused by such an inability. BAC
agrees, however, to assist in resolving any problems
in using the software or data and to reproduce the data
