Dear friends, welcome to Smartz! Thank you for choosing Smartz's products, websites, services, devices and apps ("Services"). Smartz ("we", "us" or "our") is the global leading SaaS platform provider. We are connecting smart devices and most importantly, you.
The Agreement. Our Privacy Notice, Two-year Limited Warranty, Open
Source Agreement, Software End User Licensing Agreement and Sales Terms
are incorporated into this Terms of Services (collectively referred to
as the "Agreement") by reference as if fully set forth herein.
Binding Contract. The Agreement serves as a guide to help you understand our Services, and also constitutes a legally binding agreement between you and Smartz. Your use of our Services indicates that you have read, accepted and agreed to the Agreement and constitutes your consent to the Agreement too. You also agree that by registering, accessing or using our Services, including our free Services, you have agreed to this Agreement, which is a legally binding contract between you and Smartz.
Age. As a principle of law, only persons with legal capacity can form a binding contract with others. Accordingly, (1) if you are under 18, we cannot offer Services to you because it is our responsibility to protect you, so please discontinue the use of our Services in the future; (2) if you are between 13 and 18 (or the equivalent minimum age in the jurisdiction where you reside), you may only use the Services under the supervision of a parent or legal guardian who agrees to be bound by this Agreement. BY USING OUR SERVICES, YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT TO US THAT YOU ARE OVER THE AGE OF 18 (OR EQUIVALENT MINIMUM AGE IN THE JURISDICTION WHERE YOU RESIDE).
Not an Emergency Alert Service. Smartz's Services are not designed to provide emergency alert services. By using Smartz's Services you agree that they are not an emergency response system. Third-party emergency response solutions may be offered through Smartz, but they will operate independently from Smartz and Smartz will not be responsible for any services provided by third parties.
IN THE EVENT OF ANY LIFE/SAFETY EMERGENCY, PLEASE CONTACT THE POLICE, FIRE DEPARTMENT, 911 OR ANY OTHER APPROPRIATE EMERGENCY RESPONSE SERVICE IMMEDIATELY INSTEAD OF Smartz.
IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU WILL HAVE TO IMMEDIATELY CEASE USING AND/OR ACCESSING OUR SERVICES.
We offer two types of cloud plans
Continuous Plan – Under the continuous plan, you enjoy
60-day intelligent continuous cloud recording; alert clips will be
stored in the Smartz cloud. The first-day recording (00:00-24:00) in
your 60-day cloud plan will be deleted from the cloud server
automatically by the system at 24:00 on the 60th day, even if less than
24 hours’ recording is stored on the first day. PLEASE ALWAYS REMEMBER
TO DOWNLOAD AND/OR BACK UP ANY CLOUD RECORDINGS OR ALERT CLIPS THAT YOU
WOULD LIKE TO RETAIN BEYOND THE STORAGE PERIOD IN YOUR PREMIUM PLAN.
SMARTZ WILL NOT BE LIABLE OR RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LOST CLOUD RECORDINGS
OR ALERT CLIPS THAT YOU FAIL TO DOWNLOAD OR BACK UP IN TIME.
Clips Plan – Under the Clips Plan, you enjoy 60-day motion triggered recording; alert clips will be stored in the Smartz cloud. The first-day recording (00:00-24:00) in your 60-day clips plan will be deleted from the cloud server automatically by the system at 24:00 on the 60th day. PLEASE ALWAYS REMEMBER TO DOWNLOAD AND/OR BACK UP ANY ALERT CLIPS THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO RETAIN BEYOND THE STORAGE PERIOD IN YOUR PREMIUM PLAN. SMARTZ WILL NOT BE LIABLE OR RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LOST CLOUD RECORDINGS OR ALERT CLIPS THAT YOU FAIL TO DOWNLOAD OR BACK UP IN TIME.
Cloud Plan Billing. For each of the Continuous and Clips Plans, you may initially subscribe for periods of 1 month or 1 year. Recurring subscription fees are billed or charged every month or 1 year, respectively, from the day of your initial subscription. If you subscribed on the 29th, 30th, or 31st of a month, and such date is later than the last day of a month in which subscription fees are due, your subscription will be renewed and billed on the last day of that month. For example, a 1 month subscription that began on March 31st will be renewed and billed on April 30th, etc. If any payment is not received in a timely manner, or if any credit card or similar transaction is rejected, Smartz reserves the right to process any payment method you have submitted to retry billing until successful, or to cancel your subscription plan and to collect any rejection or insufficient funds fee due.
Automatic Renewal. In order to make sure that your continued use of our Services is not disrupted, your subscription period of 1 month or 1 year, as applicable, will be automatically renewed when your initial subscription expires, unless and until you choose to unsubscribe from us or we cancel your subscription.
Cancellations and Refunds. You may cancel your recurring subscription through your Smartz account at any time, with or without cause. You may also cancel by contacting us at email@example.com, but may be required to provide certain forms of authentication and verification of ownership. If you subscribed to the cloud plan through the iOS in-app purchase, your subscription and billing is managed by Apple. You will need to cancel your subscription from your iTunes account or by contacting Apple. If you subscribed to the cloud plan through Google in-app purchase, your subscription and billing is managed by Google. You will need to cancel your subscription from the Google Play Store settings. Your cancellation date will be in accordance with the time stamp of the original contact. To avoid future billing, you must cancel your subscription before the next renewal date. Cloud subscription plans are not eligible for refunds. As such, after cancellation you will continue to enjoy access to the cloud plan until the last day of your current subscription period. After the subscription period ends, you will no longer be billed the recurring subscription fees, and your cloud recordings will be permanently deleted and will no longer be accessible to you.
