eBodyGuard reserves the right to change this Agreement at any time, including but not limited to changing the charges associated with the use of the eBodyGuard app. eBodyGuard will give you notice of such changes by posting the revised Agreement at www.ebodyguard.org/terms. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are aware of the current Agreement at all times. If we make any changes to this Agreement, we will change the “last updated” date above.

eBodyGuard Additional Terms

Standard-rated text messages are part of the eBodyGuard app. For example, text messages are sent to your Bodyguards when the SOS button is pressed or when voice activation is triggered. Messaging and data rates may apply depending on the terms of your individual mobile service plan.

To subscribe to the eBodyGuard app, you can download our apps from various app stores and follow setup instructions inside the app, or go to eBodyGuard.org for more information. To cancel a subscription, remove the app from the phone. To get help, email us at support@ebodyguard.org.

Charges

When you register for the eBodyGuard app, you will be given an opportunity to select the term of the subscription. All functions of the eBodyGuard app are included in the subscription price. eBodyGuard does not have a premium service. As we upgrade and add functions to the eBodyGuard app, we will strive to maintain this one price per subscription policy. Should that policy change, we will notify the user of any changes.

To sign up, you will be required to provide us with your iTunes/Apple ID and password, credit card or PayPal account information to enable eBodyGuard to automatically (either monthly, annually or at other agreed upon intervals) charge your iTunes account, credit card or PayPal account. These charges will be applied to your iTunes account, credit card or PayPal account in advance of the period in which the services are to be provided or made available to you. So for example, if the service offerings you select have a monthly billing cycle, we will charge your iTunes account, credit card or PayPal account at the beginning of the applicable month for the entire month. If the service offerings you select have a yearly billing schedule, we will charge your iTunes account, credit card or PayPal account at the beginning of the applicable year for the entire year.

If eBodyGuard decides to cancel a service offering for which you have prepaid, unless such cancellation is as a result of your breach of these Terms of Use, eBodyGuard shall, in its sole discretion, refund the portion of the services which is unused or credit your account for the use of other service offerings. However, no prepaid charges shall be refundable to you should you terminate or cancel your account with eBodyGuard.

By registering for the eBodyGuard app and agreeing to these Terms of Use, you hereby authorize Mobile Software to charge your iTunes account, credit card or PayPal account on file with us for the intervals agreed to upon your selection.

You agree to maintain the accuracy, completeness and effectiveness of your billing information (including without limitation ensuring an active iTunes account, credit card or PayPal account with sufficient credit to make payments of all amounts due is authorized and included in the billing information) and to immediately make appropriate changes to your account of any changes to such iTunes account, credit card, PayPal account or other billing information. Should you fail to do so, eBodyGuard shall have the right to immediately terminate or cancel your access to the eBodyGuard app without notice to you and shall have no liability to you or any third party for doing so.

eBodyGuard is committed to making all rates and charges visible and predictable to you. You acknowledge and accept, however, that Mobile Software may change the charges associated with your use of the eBodyGuard app and that, dependent on your mobile service plan, your mobile network service provider may charge you additional fees for the use of the eBodyGuard app.

Links to Third Party Sites

The eBodyGuard app may contain links to other websites and mobile services (“Linked Sites” and “Linked Services”). The Linked Sites and Linked Services are not under the control of eBodyGuard and eBodyGuard is not responsible for the contents of any Linked Site or the operation of any Linked Service, including without limitation any link contained in a Linked Service or on a Linked Site, or any changes or updates to a Linked Site or Linked Service. eBodyGuard is not responsible for either the quality or character of webcasting or any other form of transmission received from any Linked Site or Linked Service. eBodyGuard provides links to Linked Sites and Linked Services solely as a convenience, and accordingly, your access to or use of a Linked Site or Linked Service is at your sole risk. The inclusion of any link on the eBodyGuard app to a Linked Site or Linked Service does not imply endorsement by eBodyGuard of the Linked Site or Linked Service or any association with its owners or operators. You should always read the privacy policy of a third-party website before providing any information to the website.

    Unlike traditional 911 emergency calls, eBodyGuard works on Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP). The VOIP may be provided by a third party. If the VOIP is provided by a third party, you further acknowledge that eBodyGuard shall have no liability to you or to any third party arising as a result of any networks or servers failing to perform in the manner intended, failure of the eBodyGuard app to properly operate with the third party VOIP provider or from any errors occurring from the VOIP provider as a result of your use of the eBodyGuard app.

    You acknowledge that the voice activation is at this time experimental and may not function properly at all time in all circumstances. By using the eBodyGuard app you acknowledge that eBodyGuard shall have no liability to you or to any third party arising as a result of the voice activation failing to perform in the manner in which is was intended.

    eBodyGuard has no obligation to monitor the Communications. However, eBodyGuard reserves the right to review the use of and/or materials posted to a Communication and to remove any materials in its sole discretion at any time. eBodyGuard reserves the right to suspend or terminate your access to the eBodyGuard app or any or all of the Communications at any time without notice for any reason whatsoever. eBodyGuard will terminate your access to the eBodyGuard app and all Communications should you be found to have defamed, abused, harassed, stalked, threatened or otherwise violated the legal rights (such as rights of privacy and publicity) of others.

    eBodyGuard will, at all times, respect users privacy and information, but it may become legally necessary to disclose such information. In that case, eBodyGuard reserves the right at all times to disclose any information as necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, governmental request or subpoena, or to edit, refuse to post or to remove any information or materials, in whole or in part, in eBodyGuard’s sole discretion.

    eBodyGuard takes no responsibility for the proper functioning of any networks or servers, or any communications that occur over such networks and servers. eBodyGuard makes no representations or warranties as to the interoperability of the eBodyGuard app with any network or servers.

    You acknowledge and recognize that the eBodyGuard app is a self-help service provided through applications, mobile networks, and the internet, and that eBodyGuard does not always control or endorse the involvement of its users in the eBodyGuard app, including who is a user, administrator or co-administrator and, therefore, eBodyGuard specifically disclaims any liability with regard to the Communications and any actions resulting from your participation in any Communication. eBodyGuard app users are not authorized eBodyGuard spokespersons, and their views do not necessarily reflect those of eBodyGuard.

    Materials uploaded to a Communication may be subject to posted limitations on usage, reproduction and/or dissemination. You are responsible for adhering to such limitations if you download the materials.

    Content Provided to eBodyGuard on or through the eBodyGuard app, eBodyGuard Software does not claim ownership of the materials you provide to Mobile Software or post, upload, input or submit to the eBodyGuard app (including pictures, personal details, feedback and suggestions) (collectively
