This Agreement sets forth the terms and conditions that apply to your access and use of the Virtual Vista data service ("Virtual Vista"), as owned and operated by Leica Geosystems Pty Ltd, a Queensland company, on behalf of itself and its direct or indirect subsidiaries and/or affiliates, (collectively referred to as "Leica Geosystems"). By using Virtual Vista you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement and Virtual Vista's Privacy and Security Policy, as they may be amended from time to time in the future (see "Modifications" below).

The term "you" or "User" refers to a Visitor or a Member. The term "we" refers to Leica Geosystems. If you wish to become a Member, communicate with other Members and make use of the Service, you must read this Agreement and indicate your acceptance during the Registration process.

You may not use the Service and you may not accept this Agreement if you are not of a legal age to form a binding contract with Leica Geosystems.

If you accept this Agreement, you represent that you have the capacity to be bound by it or if you are acting on behalf of a company or entity that you have the authority to bind such entity. Before you continue, you should print or save a local copy of this Agreement for your records.

2. Privacy and your Personal Information

For information about Leica Geosystems's data protection practices, please read the Leica Geosystems Privacy Policy, which is hereby incorporated into this Agreement. This policy explains how Leica Geosystems treats your personal information when you access Virtual Vista and use the Service. The policy may be updated from time to time at our discretion. Changes will be effective upon posting to the site.

We grant certain third-parties access to your stored data (described below) in connection with the Service when you choose such Partner Services (described below.)

It may be necessary to transfer your stored data out of your country of origin because the data storage is provided by a cloud service over whom Leica Geosystems does not have complete control. By agreeing to these terms and using the Service, You agree to such transfer.

3. Description of the Service

The Service is a data storage and information service for the agricultural industry, and includes storage of agricultural navigation device configuration files, land boundaries, third party service management (including network data correction services) and other information service and storage related to the agricultural industry.

The following features may comprise the Service or will comprise the Service in the future. The following descriptions are for illustration only; and Leica Geosystems does not guarantee each of the features described. Some of the following features may be for premium users only.

Information about the location of your vehicle and the current system status such as GPS status, steering performance and area completed are communicated to the service. An authorised user is able to review this information on a web portal, tracking where the vehicle has been and its current live status. Additionally the user may configure alerts which will be triggered when the vehicle leaves a boundary, operates at a defined time or operates in a certain way.

Additional data recorded on the registered device may be kept in sync with the data stored on the service to allow remote management of data, vehicles and people.

Partner Services

Leica Geosystems knows every local region has individual requirements which cannot be met by a single farm management package without compromising simplicity. By subscribing to a partner service Leica Geosystems can provide a third party access to your stored data to provide the local management tools and reports you need.

Many components of the Service are provided to you by Leica Geosystems without charge. Other features may require a subscription or fee.
