Terms of Service
SAFELET TERMS OF SERVICE
SAFELET BV designs products and services to assist users to lead more secure lives. These Terms of Service (“Terms”) govern your purchase and use of our SAFELET devices (“Products”), our websites, including SAFELET.com, the software embedded in Products, the SAFELET mobile applications (the “SAFELET Apps”), and other SAFELET services (collectively, the “SAFELET Service”).
IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT THESE TERMS, DO NOT USE THE SAFELET APP, VISIT SAFELET.COM OR USE THE SAFELET SERVICE.
These Terms May Change
Because our business and the environment we all live in changes, these Terms will change over time. If we make minor changes to the Terms without materially changing your rights, we will post the modified Terms on SAFELET.com. We also may notify you by email of other changes to the Terms through the SAFELET Service (including through the App), or at our election and discretion, by providing you with a new Terms of Service to accept. When you use the SAFELET Service after a modification is posted or you are notified of any modification, you are accepting the modifications to these Terms.

You may use the SAFELET Service if you are 13 years of age or older and are not barred from receiving services under applicable law. You may connect to the SAFELET Service using (i) a Product that is manufactured, distributed, or sold by or on behalf of SAFELET, (ii) a SAFELET App, (iii) approved third-party applications or devices, or (iv) SAFELET.com (collectively, the “Authorized Connections”).

Any violation or attempted violation of this provision may result in the immediate suspension or termination of your ability to access the SAFELET Service. If you have questions about whether a product or application qualifies as an Authorized Connection, please contact support@SAFELET.com.
Creating an Account
Full use of any SAFELET App requires that you create an account by providing us with your name, a valid e-mail address and a mobile phone number with SMS capability (and any other required information as specified in the SAFELET App). You are responsible for all activity that occurs in association with your SAFELET App account. SAFELET is not liable for any loss or damages caused by your failure to maintain the confidentiality of your SAFELET App account credentials.
Full use of the SAFELET Service is dependent upon your use of a mobile device with adequate software, or a Product, supported mobile cellular device and Internet access. The maintenance and security of this equipment may influence the performance of the SAFELET Service (especially a SAFELET App) and it is your responsibility to ensure the equipment’s functionality.
Posting Your Content On The SAFELET Service
You are responsible for Your Content. You represent and warrant that you own Your Content or that you have all rights necessary to grant us a license to use Your Content as described in these Terms. You also represent and warrant that Your Content and the use and provision of Your Content on the SAFELET Service will not: (a) infringe, misappropriate or otherwise violate any third party’s patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret, moral rights or other intellectual property rights, or rights of publicity or privacy; (b) violate, or encourage any conduct that would violate, any applicable law or regulation or would give rise to civil liability; (c) be fraudulent, false, misleading or deceptive; (d) be defamatory, obscene, pornographic, vulgar or offensive; (e) promote or otherwise contribute to discrimination, bigotry, racism, hatred, harassment or harm against any individual or group; (f) be violent or threatening or promote violence or actions that are or would reasonably be expected to be threatening to any person or entity; or (g) promote illegal or harmful actions, activities or substances.
You also agree that Your Content will comply with the following community guidelines:
- Be respectful of the opinions of others. Even though you might not agree with someone, that doesn’t mean they are wrong or deserve to be belittled. Remember that what works for you may not work for everyone else. Give everyone the same courtesy you would expect in return.
- Do not post profane or explicit content.
- Do not post pictures that might be considered inappropriate.
- Do not post communications that could be interpreted as threatening or harassing.
- Do not post, advertise, or promote products or services commercially.

We are not obligated to monitor access or use of the SAFELET Service, SAFELET Content, or Your Content or to review or edit any SAFELET Content or Your Content, but we have the right to do so for the purpose of operating the SAFELET Service, to ensure compliance with these Terms, and to comply with applicable law or other legal requirements. We may consult with and disclose unlawful conduct to law enforcement authorities; and pursuant to valid legal process, we may cooperate with law enforcement authorities to prosecute users who violate the law.

Use The SAFELET Service At Your Own Risk
Our goal is to provide helpful and accurate information on the SAFELET Service, but we make no endorsement, representation or warranty of any kind about the SAFELET Service including the activation of any alerts by you, any SAFELET Content, information, services or recommendations.

Maps, directions, and other GPS or navigation data, including data relating to your current location, may be unavailable, inaccurate or incomplete.

Please read and comply with all safety and cautionary notices that accompany your Product and/or the SAFELET Service, including those located on the Product packaging and insert, as well as any other notices posted on any part of the SAFELET Service.

SAFELET’s Terms of Sale (and Return Policy) and SAFELET’s Limited Warranty apply to purchases made through the SAFELET store at SAFELET.com. All orders placed are subject to SAFELET’s acceptance. We may accept, decline, or place limits on your order for any reason.
We are always pleased to hear from users of the SAFELET Service and those interested in SAFELET, whether in the form of comments or other feedback. However, neither SAFELET, nor any of its employees or any other representatives of SAFELET, may accept or consider any unsolicited ideas, including ideas for new or improved products or services, new marketing campaigns or product or service names. Therefore, please do not submit any such unsolicited ideas in any form to SAFELET or any of its employees or representatives. This policy is necessary to avoid potential misunderstandings or disputes that may arise if any of our new products or services or marketing campaigns were to appear similar to an idea submitted by you.
If, despite our policy, you still submit an idea to us, then regardless of anything contained in your submission you agree that the following shall apply: (i) we shall have no obligation to review the submission; (ii) the submission and its contents shall automatically become the property of SAFELET, without any compensation to you; (iii) we may consider the submission and its contents to be non-confidential and non-proprietary; and (iv) we may redistribute or use (for commercial purposes or otherwise) the submission and its contents for any purpose and in any way, without any compensation to you.

Governing Law and Dispute Resolution
You agree that any dispute between you and SAFELET arising out of or relating to these Terms or any other aspect of the SAFELET Service (collectively, “Disputes”) will be governed by the arbitration procedure outlined in SAFELET’s Limited Warranty, which procedure is incorporated herein by reference.
As provided in SAFELET’s Limited Warranty, these Terms and the resolution of any Disputes shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware without regard to its conflict of laws principles.
You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without SAFELET’s express prior written consent.

The failure by SAFELET to enforce any provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that or any other provision. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
All notices required or permitted to be given under these Terms will be in writing and will be deemed given: (i) upon actual delivery, if made by personal service; (ii) three (3) days after mailing, if made by U.S. certified or registered mail; (iii) one (1) business day after delivery to the courier or overnight delivery service, if made by courier or overnight delivery service, and (iv) when received by electronic communication if you elect to receive notice from SAFELET by electronic communication. All notices will be addressed to such address as the party who is to receive the notice so designates by written notice to the other.
Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise.
