Acceptance of Terms
In the event that any of the terms, conditions, and notices contained herein conflict with the Additional Terms or other terms and guidelines contained within any particular section of the Sites or with any terms included with any product or service purchased from us, then these TOU shall control.
Storage of Your Content
The Company may from time to time in its sole discretion offer different storage plans to retain copies of Content captured by Products and other equipment through the use of the Sites. We reserve the right to change these plans at any time. We cannot guarantee that your content will be stored, backed up or retrievable if you have not selected a plan to store your Content. The foregoing is subject to the warranty disclaimer and limitation of liability below with respect to loss of data.
Nature of Products
You acknowledge that the Products are a do-it-yourself installation and the Company has no way to verify that the Products are properly installed prior to any incident. In the event you choose to self-monitor on the Sites or forgo monitoring of any kind, you agree that you assume full responsibility for any damages caused by your failure to monitor the Sites. If you choose to hire a monitoring service, you agree to be bound by all conditions that apply to professional monitoring customers.
You understand that the Product is not connected to the electrical system of your premises and requires batteries to operate. THE PRODUCT WILL NOT OPERATE, AND THE ALARM WILL NOT SOUND IF THE BATTERIES ARE LOW OR DEAD. It is your sole responsibility to maintain and replace the Product's batteries. The Company recommends that you regularly inspect the sensors for dirt and dust and test the sensors frequently to help maintain continued operation.
You agree to pay all construction/alarm use permit fees, all directly or indirectly imposed false alarm fines, fees or charges, all telephone or signal transmission company charges, and all other assessments, fees and charges related to the alarm system.
Account, Password, and Security
When you register for the Sites, you will create a password to access certain materials on the Sites. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account. Furthermore, you are solely responsible for any and all activities that occur under your account. You agree to immediately notify the Company of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security. The Company will not be liable for any loss that you may incur as a result of someone else using your account or password, either with or without your knowledge. However, you may be held liable for losses incurred by the Company or a third party due to someone else using your account or password. You may not use any account that is registered to another person at any time without the permission of the account holder and the Company. By creating an account, you agree that you will provide only true and correct information to us about yourself and that you will not create an account for or on behalf of anyone else and that you will not use any pretext or deception to create an account, not in your own name or that would appear to be the account of another person. You agree that you will not use any pretext or deception to access or attempt to access the account of any other person.

THE COMPANY AND/OR ITS AUTHORIZED BUSINESS RELATIONS MAY MAKE IMPROVEMENTS AND/OR CHANGES TO THE SITES AT ANY TIME.
THE COMPANY AND ITS BUSINESS RELATIONS DO NOT MAKE ANY REPRESENTATIONS ABOUT THE SUITABILITY, RELIABILITY, AVAILABILITY, TIMELINESS, LACK OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS, ACCURACY OF THE CONTENT, SOFTWARE, PRODUCTS, AND RELATED GRAPHICS CONTAINED WITHIN THE SITES FOR ANY PURPOSE. ALL SUCH INFORMATION, SOFTWARE, PRODUCTS, AND RELATED GRAPHICS ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. THE COMPANY AND ITS SUPPLIERS HEREBY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS WITH REGARD TO THIS INFORMATION, SOFTWARE, PRODUCTS, AND RELATED GRAPHICS, INCLUDING ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, WORKMANLIKE EFFORT, TITLE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.

THE COMPANY MAKES NO REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY THAT: (1) THE PRODUCTS MAY NOT BE COMPROMISED OR CIRCUMVENTED, (2) THE PRODUCT WILL PREVENT ANY PERSONAL INJURY OR PROPERTY LOSS; OR (3) THAT THE PRODUCT WILL PROVIDE ADEQUATE WARNING OR PROTECTION. THE COMPANY'S EQUIPMENT AND SERVICES DO NOT CAUSE AND CANNOT ELIMINATE OCCURRENCES OF THE EVENTS THEY ARE INTENDED TO DETECT OR AVERT, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, BURGLARIES, ROBBERIES, FIRES, FLOODS, AND MEDICAL PROBLEMS. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT A PROPERLY INSTALLED AND MAINTAINED ALARM MAY ONLY REDUCE THE RISK OF A BURGLARY, ROBBERY OR OTHER EVENTS OCCURRING WITHOUT PROVIDING AN ALARM, BUT IT IS NOT INSURANCE OR A GUARANTEE THAT THE EQUIPMENT AND SERVICES PURCHASED WILL DETECT OR AVERT SUCH INCIDENTS OR THEIR CONSEQUENCES, OR THAT THERE WILL BE NO PERSONAL INJURY OR PROPERTY LOSS AS A RESULT.
YOU AGREE THAT BY USING THE PRODUCT, THE COMPANY DOES NOT UNDERTAKE ANY RISK THAT YOU OR YOUR PROPERTY, OR THE PERSON OR PROPERTY OF OTHERS, MAY BE SUBJECT TO INJURY OR LOSS IF SUCH AN EVENT OCCURS. YOU AGREE THE ALLOCATION OF SUCH RISK REMAINS WITH YOU, NOT THE COMPANY. BY USING THE PRODUCT, YOU RELEASE, WAIVE, DISCHARGE AND PROMISE NOT TO SUE OR BRING ANY CLAIM OF ANY TYPE AGAINST THE COMPANY FOR LOSS, DAMAGE OR INJURY RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THE PRODUCT OR SERVICES PROVIDED BY THE COMPANY.

BECAUSE SOME STATES AND/OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR DIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN THIS EVENT, THE COMPANY'S LIABILITY TO YOU WILL NOT EXCEED THE AMOUNT PAID BY YOU TO THE COMPANY TO ACCESS THE SITES IN THE TWELVE (12) MONTHS PRIOR TO THE ACCRUAL OF A CLAIM BY YOU AGAINST THE COMPANY. IF YOU ARE DISSATISFIED WITH ANY PORTION OF THE SITES, OR WITH ANY PART OF THESE TOU, YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY IS TO DISCONTINUE USING THE SITES.
COMPANY IS NOT AN ISSUER; LIMITATION OF LIABILITY: YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT: (A) COMPANY OR THE CENTRAL STATION MONITORING PROVIDER IS NOT AN INSURER OF YOUR PREMISES, PROPERTY OR THE PERSONAL SAFETY OF PERSONS IN YOUR PREMISES; (B) YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE TO PROVIDE ANY INSURANCE ON YOUR PREMISES AND ITS CONTENTS; (C) THE AMOUNT YOU PAY TO COMPANY IS BASED ONLY ON THE VALUE OF THE SYSTEM AND SERVICES COMPANY PROVIDES, AND NOT ON THE VALUE OF YOUR PREMISES OR ITS CONTENTS; (D) ALARM SYSTEMS AND THE CENTRAL STATION MONITORING SERVICE MAY NOT ALWAYS OPERATE PROPERLY OR AT ALL FOR VARIOUS REASONS; (E) IT IS DIFFICULT TO DETERMINE IN ADVANCE (I) THE VALUE OF THE PROPERTY THAT MIGHT BE LOST, STOLEN OR DESTROYED OR (II) THE DAMAGES INCURRED RESULTING FROM OR CAUSED BY PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH TO YOU OR ANY OTHER PERSON IF THE SYSTEM OR OUR SERVICES FAIL TO OPERATE PROPERLY OR AT ALL; (F) IT IS DIFFICULT TO DETERMINE IN ADVANCE HOW FAST THE POLICE OR FIRE DEPARTMENT OR OTHER EMERGENCY PERSONNEL WOULD RESPOND TO AN ALARM SIGNAL; AND (G) IT IS DIFFICULT TO DETERMINE IN ADVANCE WHAT PORTION, IF ANY, OF THE PROPERTY LOSS, PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH WOULD BE PROXIMATELY CAUSED BY OUR FAILURE TO PERFORM, OUR NEGLIGENCE, OR A FAILURE OF THE SYSTEM OR THE SERVICES PROVIDED HEREIN. THEREFORE, YOU AGREE: EVEN IF A COURT DECIDED THAT COMPANY’S BREACH OF THIS AGREEMENT, A FAILURE OF THE SYSTEM, OUR NEGLIGENCE, OUR ACTION OR INACTION, OR A FAILURE OF THE MONITORING OR REPAIR SERVICE CAUSED, CONTRIBUTED TO OR ALLOWED ANY HARM OR DAMAGE (WHETHER PROPERTY DAMAGE, PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH) TO YOU OR ANYONE IN YOUR PREMISES, YOU AGREE THAT OUR LIABILITY SHALL BE LIMITED TO, FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($500) OR 6 MONTHS OF SERVICE FEES, WHICHEVER IS HIGHER, AS LIQUIDATED DAMAGES AND NOT AS A PENALTY, AND THIS SHALL BE YOUR ONLY REMEDY REGARDLESS OF WHAT LEGAL THEORY IS USED TO DETERMINE THAT COMPANY WAS LIABLE FOR THE INJURY OR LOSS.
THE LIMITATION OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE IS A FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENT OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN YOU AND COMPANY AND REFLECTS AN ALLOCATION OF RISK BETWEEN THE PARTIES (INCLUDING THE RISK THAT A CONTRACT REMEDY MAY FAIL OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE AND CAUSE CONSEQUENTIAL LOSS). ACCESS TO THE SITES WOULD NOT BE PROVIDED TO YOU WITHOUT SUCH LIMITATIONS.
THESE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY EXTEND TO ALL CLAIMS WHETHER OR NOT CLAIMED OR SUSPECTED AND CONSTITUTE A WAIVER OF EACH AND ALL THE PROVISIONS OF THE CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE, SECTION 1542 (TO THE EXTENT IT WOULD BE APPLICABLE), WHICH READS AS FOLLOWS: "A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR." YOU UNDERSTAND THAT SECTION 1542 GIVES YOU THE RIGHT NOT TO RELEASE EXISTING CLAIMS OF WHICH YOU ARE PRESENTLY UNAWARE, UNLESS YOU VOLUNTARILY CHOOSE TO WAIVE THIS RIGHT. HAVING BEEN SO INFORMED, YOU NEVERTHELESS HEREBY VOLUNTARILY ELECT TO, AND DO, WAIVE THE RIGHTS DESCRIBED IN SECTION 1542, AND EVERY OTHER APPLICABLE SIMILAR LAW AND STATUTE (IF ANY) IN EACH OTHER APPLICABLE JURISDICTION, AND ELECT TO ASSUME ALL RISKS FOR CLAIMS THAT NOW EXIST IN YOUR FAVOR, KNOWN OR UNKNOWN, FROM THE SUBJECT OF THIS AGREEMENT.
You agree to indemnify and hold the Company and its respective officers, directors, employees, agents, successors, and assigns harmless from any claim, demand, or damage, including reasonable attorneys' fees, asserted by any third party due to, or arising out of, your use of the Sites and/or any information (text or graphical), software, or products obtained through the Sites and/or from Company.
