TERMS & CONDITIONS
The parties hereto agree that:
1. Alerting people in an emergency situation
The USER of the device understands that the device is used as a first-instance, alert system to help the wearer in an emergency, when under duress or when in need of help. It is designed and supplied to simply alert the USER’S chosen family member/s or friend/s, work colleagues, employers, carer/s or neighbor/s so they can quickly arrange someone to come to the USER’S aid. Use of the device does not guarantee that help or protection or that emergency help will arrive within a specific time frame.
2. Limitations of device: Mobile network coverage disclaimer
The USER understands the actual mobile alarm connection depends on where they are in relation to the available mobile network coverage. USERS should be aware we do not guarantee that coverage.
It is the users responsibility to ensure coverage is adequate in the areas they anticipate usage. Most cellular network providers provide coverage maps on their own respective websites and it is the users responsibility to check these for coverages before purchase.
User must also accept that physical structures may block or inhibit coverage could include basements, lifts, underground car parks, concrete buildings, tunnels and trees. Geographic features which may block or inhibit coverage could include formations such as hills and mountains or even trees.
If the USER is relying on the device for possible emergencies it is the responsibility of them to test the device before using it and relying on it and then do regular tests. We do not guarantee that the device can connect to the mobile network at all times, or that a help SMS or help call will be received by every emergency contact at all times or within a short time frame.
3. Limitations of device: GPS Functions disclaimer
The USER understands that the GPS functions and the help SMS alarms the device sends out with a GPS location on Google Maps are limited to the common constraints of all GPS systems.
The device uses the built in GPS technology to fix the location of the device with an accuracy of 5 meters. In order for the GPS functions to work it requires a line-of-sight connection to satellites in the sky. For the device to receive the signal it needs to be pointed to the sky. It normally takes up to 10 minutes to receive it’s first fix (TFFF) and work out the co-ordinates of it’s exact location.
We cannot guarantee that the device knows the current GPS location at all times, i.e. When the help button is activated or a ‘loc’ request is sent to it via SMS.
Underground car parks, lifts, concrete buildings, tunnels and other constructions can block the signal from satellites to the pendant. It is possible that if a wearer of the pendant is in a location where there is no GPS signal that there may also be no mobile signal meaning the functions of the device will not operate till the wearer moves to an unobstructed location.
If the device is unable to locate any GPS satellite signals (Such as inside a building or carpark – anywhere with no line of sight to the sky), it will use GSM & Wifi signals to give a ‘relative’ location instead.
4. Limitation of prepaid credit being available
SIM card is Not included in the purchase price. The USER understands that the device requires a SIM card, specific to the frequency of the dual band alarm device supplied, installed that requires an amount of either pre-paid or on account credit to be available for it to perform it’s SMS alarm functions, GPS location functions, voice call functions and SMS reply and command functions. It is the responsibility of the USER to regularly check that there is enough credit for functioning. We take no responsibility for the Purchase of a SIM card, its network coverage capability, checking or recharging of credit at any time.
5. Limitation of liability
The parties agree that the device is not designed or guaranteed to prevent any loss or injury
