IN ORDER FOR YOU TO BECOME FAMILIAR WITH THE USE AND OPERATION OF THE SYSTEM, YOU SHALL HAVE A THREE (3) DAY PERIOD FOLLOWING ACTIVATION OF YOUR SYSTEM (THE “PRACTICE MODE PERIOD”) TO PRACTICE USING THE SYSTEM. YOU AGREE THAT DURING THE PRACTICE MODE PERIOD WE HAVE NO OBLIGATION TO, AND WILL NOT, NOTIFY ANY AUTHORITIES, YOU, OR ANY EMERGENCY CONTACTS OR TAKE ANY OTHER ACTION WITH REGARD TO ANY ALARM SIGNAL WE RECEIVE, EVEN IF DUE TO AN ACTUAL EMERGENCY EVENT. IF YOU CONTACT US TO ATTEMPT TO SKIP THE PRACTICE MODE PERIOD, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT IT TAKES TIME FOR THE SYSTEM TO BE PLACED ON-LINE WITH THE MONITORING FACILITY, AND NO RESPONSE TO ALARM SIGNALS, INCLUDING ANY ACTUAL EMERGENCY, MAY BE MADE UNTIL YOUR ACCOUNT DISPLAYS AS “ACTIVE” AND NOT “PRACTICE MODE” IN YOUR ONLINE DASHBOARD.
1. Services. SafeAlarms will provide you the Services subject to the terms of this Agreement.

If you do not provide SafeAlarms an e-mail address, then SafeAlarms may send you written notice of the termination by regular mail, postage pre-paid and any such notice shall be effective upon four (4) days following the day on which SafeAlarms sent the notice. Upon termination of the Agreement, SafeAlarms shall have no further obligation to Subscriber and Subscriber shall have no further obligation to SafeAlarms other than (i) the obligation respecting the payment of any monies due to SafeAlarms for services rendered; and (ii) the obligations set forth in Sections 3-8, inclusive, 13-19, inclusive, and 24-37, inclusive. Notwithstanding the foregoing, SafeAlarms shall refund any unearned service charges with respect to any full calendar month following any termination. SafeAlarms shall not refund any unearned service charges with respect to any partial calendar month following any termination. There are no termination fees.
3. Payment for Services. Subscriber shall pay SafeAlarms the periodic service charge in advance. You authorize SafeAlarms to charge your credit/debit card for the periodic (e.g., monthly, quarterly or annually) service charge when due. If charges are declined, SafeAlarms shall resubmit the charges for approval and notify you of the declined charges by e-mail while continuing to provide Emergency Dispatch Services for ten (10) days. If the charges are not approved and you do not make payment, SafeAlarms may, in its sole discretion, discontinue services without notice at or after the end of the ten (10) day period. If Subscriber otherwise does not pay any charges when due, SafeAlarms may, in its sole discretion, terminate this Agreement and/or discontinue services without notice.
4. INSURANCE. SAFEALARMS’S SERVICE CHARGES ARE BASED SOLELY ON THE VALUE OF SERVICES PROVIDED AND ARE NOT INSURANCE PREMIUMS AND ARE NOT RELATED TO THE VALUE OF PROPERTY LOCATED ON OR NEAR THE PREMISES. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT SAFEALARMS IS NOT AN INSURER. YOU SHALL MAINTAIN INSURANCE COVERING ALL LOSS, DAMAGE OR EXPENSE (COLLECTIVELY, “LOSSES”), INCLUDING ALL PROPERTY DAMAGE, PERSONAL INJURY (INCLUDING DEATH), ECONOMIC LOSSES OR ANY OTHER FORM OF LOSS, DAMAGE OR EXPENSE, ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH, DUE TO, OR CAUSED IN WHOLE OR IN PART BY (I) THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING ANY BREACH OF ANY REPRESENTATION, WARRANTY, COVENANT OR OBLIGATION ARISING HEREUNDER (II) THE SYSTEM, (III) THE SERVICES, (IV) THE ACTIVE OR PASSIVE SOLE, JOINT OR SEVERAL NEGLIGENCE OF ANY KIND OR DEGREE OF YOU OR ANY SAFEALARMS PARTY (AS DEFINED IN SECTION 5), (V) THE IMPROPER OPERATION OR NON-OPERATION OF THE SYSTEM, (VI) BREACH OF CONTRACT, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WHICH OCCURS BEFORE OR AFTER THE SIGNING OF THIS AGREEMENT (VII) BREACH OF WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, (VIII) PRODUCT OR STRICT LIABILITY (IX) LOSS OR DAMAGE TO OR MALFUNCTION OF FACILITIES NECESSARY TO OPERATE THE SYSTEM, TRANSMIT ANY SIGNAL TO OR RECEIVE SIGNALS AT ANY MONITORING FACILITY, (X) A CLAIM FOR SUBROGATION, INDEMNIFICATION OR CONTRIBUTION OR (XI) THE VIOLATION OF ANY LAW PROHIBITING THE INTERCEPTION OF ORAL COMMUNICATIONS BY ELECTRONIC MEANS (COLLECTIVELY, THE “COVERED CLAIMS”). RECOVERY FOR ANY LOSSES, AS DEFINED IN SECTION 4, SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE INSURANCE YOU PURCHASE SEPARATELY FROM AN INSURANCE COMPANY.
5. LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY AND RELEASE. BY AGREEING TO THESE TERMS, YOU ARE RELEASING SAFEALARMS, ITS AFFILIATES, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, SHAREHOLDERS, EMPLOYEES, SUBCONTRACTORS, AGENTS AND REPRESENTATIVES (COLLECTIVELY, THE “SAFEALARMS PARTIES”) ON YOUR BEHALF AND ON BEHALF OF ALL OTHERS WHO MAKE CLAIMS UNDER THIS AGREEMENT FROM ALL LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH, DUE TO, OR CAUSED IN WHOLE OR IN PART BY ANY COVERED CLAIM, AS DEFINED IN SECTION 4. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL SAFEALARMS BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE TO YOU FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR PERSONAL INJURY, DEATH OR DAMAGES TO PROPERTY. NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, EVEN IF ANY SAFEALARMS PARTY IS FOUND LIABLE FOR ANY LOSSES, AS DEFINED IN SECTION 4, ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH, DUE TO, OR CAUSED IN WHOLE OR IN PART BY ANY COVERED CLAIM, AS DEFINED IN SECTION 4, ANY SUCH LIABILITY SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE MAXIMUM SUM OF $1,000.00. SAFEALARMS AND YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE IT IS IMPRACTICAL AND EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO DETERMINE THE ACTUAL DAMAGES, IF ANY, THAT MAY RESULT FROM A FAILURE BY SAFEALARMS TO PERFORM ANY OF ITS OBLIGATIONS. THIS AGREED-UPON AMOUNT IS NOT A PENALTY, AND IS THE SOLE REMEDY. IF YOU WISH TO INCREASE THE MAXIMUM AMOUNT OF SUCH LIMITED LIABILITY, YOU MAY OBTAIN A HIGHER LIMIT BY PAYING AN ADDITIONAL AMOUNT PURSUANT TO A SEPARATE AGREEMENT AGREED UPON BETWEEN YOU AND SAFEALARMS IN WRITING, BUT SAFEALARMS SHALL NOT BE HELD TO BE AN INSURER HEREUNDER.
6. NO WARRANTIES. THERE ARE NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WHICH EXTEND BEYOND THE DESCRIPTION ON THE FACE OR REVERSE OF THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF WORKMANLIKE SERVICE.
7. Release of Insured Losses; Waiver of Subrogation. You release SafeAlarms for all Losses covered by your insurance policies and for all insurance deductibles. You also waive and release any subrogation and other rights you or your insurance company may have against SafeAlarms for money paid to you or on your behalf.
8. INDEMNIFICATION. IF ANYONE OTHER THAN YOU (INCLUDING YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY) ASKS ANY SAFEALARMS PARTY TO PAY FOR ANY LOSSES, AS DEFINED IN SECTION 4, INCLUDING ATTORNEYS’ FEES, ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH, DUE TO, OR CAUSED IN WHOLE OR IN PART BY ANY COVERED CLAIM, AS DEFINED IN SECTION 4, INCLUDING THE ACTIVE OR PASSIVE SOLE, JOINT OR SEVERAL NEGLIGENCE OF ANY KIND OR DEGREE OF YOU OR ANY SAFEALARMS PARTY, YOU SHALL INDEMNIFY, DEFEND AND HOLD SUCH SAFEALARMS PARTY HARMLESS (WITHOUT ANY CONDITION THAT ANY OF THEM FIRST PAY), FOR ALL LOSSES, AS DEFINED IN SECTION 4, INCLUDING ATTORNEYS’ FEES, ASSERTED AGAINST OR INCURRED BY SUCH SAFEALARMS PARTY.
9. Communications Equipment and Services. The System is designed to transmit signals to a monitoring facility through certain communications equipment and services, including DSL, broadband, cellular, wireless and/or landline telephone equipment and services (collectively, the “Communications Equipment and Services”). Regardless of the form of Communications Equipment and Services used, you understand that the Communications Equipment and Services may be interrupted, circumvented, unavailable (for a limited or extended time period) or otherwise compromised. If the Communications Equipment and Services are inoperative or interrupted by any cause, there will be no indication of such at the monitoring facility and the monitoring facility will not receive a signal from your system. You must test the System’s data transmission with the monitoring facility at least monthly and immediately after the installation, modification or repair of any Communications Equipment or Service. (If DSL, VOIP or other form of broadband telephone equipment and services are used, such equipment and services should be installed on a telephone line and number that is not used by the System to transmit data to the monitoring facility). If you are using the optional telephone backup for the System, you will need some other means of communications to make a phone call if and when the System transmits data by telephone. You must confirm that the Communications Equipment and Services are compatible with the System, including when you make any changes to the Communications Equipment and Services. You shall immediately repair (or caused to be repaired) any (i) problems with the Communications Equipment and Services; or (ii) problems with the System. Consult the Owner’s Manual for your System for further important safety information for your System and the transmission of signals from your System.
YOU EXPRESSLY UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT YOU HAVE NO CONTRACTUAL RELATIONSHIP WHATSOEVER WITH THE UNDERLYING WIRELESS SERVICE PROVIDER (THE “UNDERLYING CARRIER”) OR ITS AFFILIATES OR CONTRACTORS AND THAT YOU ARE NOT A THIRD PARTY BENEFICIARY OF ANY AGREEMENT BETWEEN SAFEALARMS AND THE UNDERLYING CARRIER. IN ADDITION, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT THE UNDERLYING CARRIER AND ITS AFFILIATES AND CONTRACTORS SHALL HAVE NO LEGAL, EQUITABLE, OR OTHER LIABILITY OF ANY KIND TO YOU AND YOU HEREBY WAIVE ANY AND ALL CLAIMS OR DEMANDS THEREFOR.
10. Additional Equipment or Services. You have selected the System based on your personal considerations (i.e., cost, the condition of the Premises, insurance requirements, etc.). Additional equipment or services, at additional cost, may provide increased detection. You agree that any such additional equipment or services provided by SafeAlarms shall be subject to this Agreement. You also agree to pay SafeAlarms for such equipment or services. Your municipality may require a license or permit or the payment of taxes in connection with the installation, use or monitoring of the System. You are solely responsible for complying with such obligations and providing SafeAlarms with any then current license or permit number. You understand that SafeAlarms does not provide any installation or repair services for the System. You shall provide and maintain adequate power for all equipment relating to the System.
11. False Alarms; Suspension of Service and Shut-Down. You agree to prevent false alarms and be solely liable for false alarms. You must pay (or reimburse SafeAlarms) any fines, fees, costs, expenses and penalties relating to the System or Services assessed against you, SafeAlarms or the monitoring facility by any person or entity, including any court or governmental agency or any person or entity acting on the behalf of such court or agency. If (i) you default under this Agreement, (ii) this Agreement or the Services are terminated by either party for any reason, (iii) the System becomes a “runaway” system or excessively signals the monitoring facility without apparent reason, or (iv) in the opinion of monitoring facility personnel, the System otherwise becomes a “problem account,” we may suspend the Services and you authorize SafeAlarms to disconnect the System from the monitoring facility. The exercise of any such rights shall not be deemed a waiver of Company’s right to damages.
12. Increase in Charges. SafeAlarms may increase periodic recurring charges at any time under this Agreement by sending the notice to you by email to the email address on file with SafeAlarms for your current online account.
13. Default. If you default under this Agreement you shall pay SafeAlarms for all Losses in enforcing its rights under this Agreement.
14. Binding Agreement. This Agreement shall become binding on SafeAlarms only after the commencement of any Services. This Agreement is binding on the parties’ heirs, executors, administrators, successors and permitted assigns.
15. Applicable Law. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed according to the laws of Massachusetts without reference to its conflicts of law rules. The interpretation of this Agreement shall not be construed against the drafter.
16. Assignment. You may not assign this Agreement. SafeAlarms may assign all or any portion of this Agreement.
17. Finance and Late Charges. Invoices are due upon receipt. You agree to pay a finance charge of one and one-half (1-1/2%) percent per month (eighteen percent (18%) per year) for all charges not paid within thirty (30) days of the invoice date. In addition, you shall pay an administrative fee (late charge) of 5% of any invoice not paid (as agreed upon damages and not a penalty) within thirty (30) days of the invoice date.
18. No Waiver of Breach. Waiver of your breach of this Agreement shall not be a waiver of any subsequent breach. SafeAlarms’s rights under this Agreement shall be cumulative, may be exercised concurrently or consecutively and shall include all remedies available even if not referred to in this Agreement.
19. Consent to Recording. Certain federal and state laws prohibit interception and recording of telephone calls and other oral communications by electronic means, including the interception and recording of telephone calls and other oral communications by the System at the Premises. You, for yourself and any other person contacting SafeAlarms or the monitoring facility or whose communication is received from the System, whether by SafeAlarms or the monitoring facility (collectively, “Users”), consent to the interception, recording, disclosure and use of the contents of any telephone call or other oral communications in connection with the Services. In addition, you shall notify all Users with respect to any such interception, recording, disclosure or use. YOU SHALL NOT INTERCEPT OR RECORD ANY ORAL COMMUNICATION OF ANY PERSON WITHOUT HAVING SUCH PERSON’S PERMISSION TO DO SO.
20. Account Management Services. “Account Management Services” means services relating to the remote management of the System through the Portal or otherwise.
21. Video-Related Services. “Video-Related Services” consists solely of the following: (i) verification of alarm events by monitoring facility personnel in connection with the Emergency Dispatch Services to be provided pursuant to Section 23 (“Verification Services”) using audio and video received from the System, (ii) real-time access to video and audio from the System through the Portal (“Real-Time Services”) and (iii) storage and retrieval through the Portal of recorded video and audio stored on our servers (“Recorded Services”). Verification Services are intended to assist you and any permitted monitoring facility personnel to verify an alarm event at the Premises, not to reduce or eliminate any risk of loss. None of the Video-Related Services are intended to replace alarm monitoring services or to detect or prevent unauthorized intrusion onto the Premises or any other emergency condition, including fire, smoke, carbon monoxide, medical emergencies or water damage. You will use the Verification Services solely for the verification of alarm events at the Premises and no other purpose. Monitoring facility personnel will not have access to the Real-Time Services or Recorded Services unless (1) you have granted monitoring facility personnel such access through the Portal and (2) such video and audio is received at the monitoring facility in connection with the Emergency Dispatch Services.
22. Lawful Recording of Video and Audio; Required Connectivity. Recording video or audio may be unlawful or violate an individual’s rights, including privacy rights. You shall not use any of the Video-Related Services, or permit the use of any of the Video-Related Services, for any unlawful purpose. For example, you shall not use the System to obtain or record video in any place where a person may have a reasonable expectation of privacy, including restrooms, dressing or changing areas, locker rooms or similar areas. You also shall take all steps necessary to alert individuals at the Premises of the possibility of recording video or audio. You shall use a form of connectivity to permit the transmission of video, audio and Listed Codes from your System to us and any permitted monitoring facility. You shall instruct all persons who may use any Video-Related Service or the System of any limitations with respect to the Video-Related Service or the System.
23. Emergency Dispatch Service. “Emergency Dispatch Services” shall be provided in accordance with this Agreement and consist solely of monitoring facility personnel telephoning the governmental authorities (“Authorities”) or other persons provided by you (“Responsible Parties”) upon the receipt of signals from your System reporting specific conditions (“Listed Codes”) at the Premises. We shall provide Emergency Dispatch Services only for Listed Codes. Our obligation to provide Emergency Dispatch Services shall be satisfied by monitoring facility personnel contacting (or attempting to contact) the Authorities or Responsible Parties or by leaving a voicemail or similar type message with the Authorities or Responsible Parties. We will NOT send a SafeAlarms agent or any other personnel to any location in response to any alarm signal received. It is your responsibility to obtain a third party response where required by any Authority. Emergency Dispatch Services are intended to reduce the risk of a burglary, robbery or other events occurring at the Premises but are not a guarantee such events will not occur or that there will be no personal injury or property loss as a result.
24. Consent to Communicate. The Emergency Dispatch Services require that we communicate with the Responsible Parties. Our communication may take different forms, including a live operator telephone call, a pre-recorded telephone message using an auto-dialer, an SMS or other form of text message or some other form of electronic communications. We will communicate with a Responsible Party at the telephone number you provide us, including any mobile phone number or residential landline number. You will (i) inform the Responsible Parties that we will communicate with them at such numbers; and (ii) obtain permission from the Responsible Parties that we may communicate with them at these telephone numbers. You will indemnify, defend and hold us harmless (without any condition that we first pay) for any Losses (as defined in Section 4 of this Agreement), including our reasonable attorneys’ fees, arising out of or in connection with, due to or caused in whole or in part by, any claims asserted against us in connection with or as a result of our communications with any of the Responsible Parties, including any claim under any state or federal consumer protection or similar law, including the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
25. Alarm Verification Prior to Dispatch. Upon receipt of a Listed Code and before calling any Authorities or Responsible Parties, monitoring facility personnel may, in their sole discretion, take any one or more of the following steps in an attempt to verify the need to report the Listed Code to the Authorities or any of the Responsible Parties (collectively, the “Alarm Verification Steps”): (i) telephone or attempt to telephone the Premises or any of the Responsible Parties, (ii) receive, retrieve and review video from the System, (iii) intercept or retrieve and listen to oral communications or other audio from the System; or (iv) undertake such other reasonable steps to verify the need to report the Listed Code. Following any one or more of the Alarm Verification Steps, monitoring facility personnel may, in their sole discretion, determine to report (or not report) a Listed Code to the Authorities or any of the Responsible Parties. In addition, if monitoring facility personnel are unable to verify the need to report a Listed Code to the Authorities or any of the Responsible Parties, monitoring facility personnel shall have no obligation to report such Listed Code. Monitoring facility personnel shall have no obligation to review or monitor any audio or video from the System for any time that is not immediately before or after receipt of a Listed Code.
26. Alarm Cancellation. Upon receipt of any current cancellation code set in accordance with the Owner’s Manual for the System or oral advice (confirmed by safe word) to disregard the receipt of a Listed Code, monitoring facility personnel may, in their sole discretion, determine not to report a Listed Code to the Authorities or any of the Responsible Parties. Data; Data Storage. Your online account provides you with access to certain data stored by us. You agree that we may delete any data delivered to us when (i) any storage period that applies to your account expires, (ii) this Agreement is terminated or expires or (iii) you deliver a written request pursuant to Section 37 and such deletion is not prohibited by any applicable law, regulation, regulatory authority or other applicable judicial or governmental order. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, SafeAlarms is not responsible for any change to or loss of any data.

SafeAlarms grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable license to use the Internet to access our website,SafeAlarms.com/account (the “Portal”), to permit you to access, input, delete and modify information related to your account and the Services. There is a risk that unauthorized persons may gain access to the Portal and data thereon and you agree to assume such risk. You consent to our posting alarm event and other status reports in connection with the Service on the Portal. You will keep confidential all information available on the Portal and all passwords relating to the Portal or access thereto. This license will continue and be co-extensive with the term of this Agreement except for your (i) failure to keep confidential all information available on the Portal and all passwords or access codes relating to the Portal or access thereto, (ii) use of the license or the information in any manner that negatively affects us, (iii) use of the license or the information for any illegal purpose, (iv) breach of this Agreement or (v) violation of any applicable law. You will be solely responsible for information you deliver, delete or modify. Upon termination of this Agreement or termination or suspension of the license by us, we may immediately, and without notice, disable your access to the Portal and cancel all passwords or other access codes. You will not (a) disclose or make available to third parties any portion of the technology associated with the Service or the Portal without our prior written consent, (b) copy, decompile, dissemble, reverse engineer, manipulate, modify, or make derivative works of any technology incorporated in the Service or the Portal.
28. Suspension of Service. SafeAlarms’s obligations under this Agreement are waived automatically without notice and you release SafeAlarms for all Losses following any default or breach of this Agreement by you or if the monitoring facility, or Communications Equipment and Services are destroyed, damaged, inoperable or malfunction for any reason whatsoever, for the duration of such interruption of service, and you shall be entitled to a credit of the unearned charges paid for the period of interruption on your request, which credit shall not exceed more than one month’s service charge and shall be the limit of SafeAlarms’s liability. If this Agreement is terminated or the Services are suspended or terminated for any reason, you shall immediately disconnect the System from all Communications Equipment and Services (e.g., telephone line, radio transmitter, cellular transmitter, etc.). Upon termination of this Agreement or if the Services are suspended or terminated for any reason we may, in our sole discretion, without notice, and without any liability, remotely disable, disconnect or block the System and data from the System from communicating with the monitoring facility.
29. Time Limitation on Actions.
