In addition, you agree to cause your Administrators to review the official Service user manual, including the technical and functional specifications therein, which is generally made available by TLS to Customer, as may be supplemented or updated from time-to-time by TLS (“Documentation”). You and your End Users can also call TLS with any questions or concerns at our customer support number found on our app and website. TLS contracts with third party independent companies for the provision of assistance with installation of Devices in your facility. Devices must be installed correctly and in good operating condition to interoperate with the Service. You agree to test the Devices and confirm that Devices are capable of communicating with the TLS platform and to establish communications as required for TLS to function, in accordance with the instructions provided. You agree not to tamper with, remove or otherwise interfere with the Service or any Devices. Customer and its End Users must use the Service and Devices only in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement and only in compliance with our EULA and with all Applicable Laws.

The Service will commence only after (i) all required information to be provided by you is entered into the Service app by your Administrators; (ii) all Devices are installed and an acceptable test of the Devices is received by the TLS platform; and (iii) TLS receives the initial required service fee payment. In addition, following the above, the Service and certain Devices will undergo a two (2) week soak period to acclimate to the environment of your facility and adjust to the ambient conditions. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT NO NOTIFICATION OF ALERT CONDITIONS WILL BE GENERATED DURING THE 2 WEEK SOAK PERIOD. You further understand, acknowledge and agree that certain Applicable Laws, and rules, regulations and ordinances of governmental authorities, utilities, businesses, associations and other entities may affect your rights or ability to use the Service and Devices, including fees or assessments for false alarms or other restrictions.

10. SERVICE. The Service consist solely of alerting your End Users upon receipt by the TLS platform of data or other communication from a Device at your facility indicating an abnormal condition (an “Alert Condition”). Following receipt of notice of an Alert Condition, The Service will send a notice to the End Users using their Service app, email address, and/or phone number, based on the contact information your Administrators provide us. You acknowledge that signals which are transmitted over cellular networks, telephone lines, internet, VOIP, or other modes of communication pass through communication networks beyond the control of TLS and are not maintained by TLS, and therefore TLS shall not be responsible for any equipment failure which prevents transmission signals from reaching the TLS platform and/or your Service app or damages arising as a result thereof, or for data corruption, theft or viruses to your mobile devices (e.g. smartphone or tablet) if connected to the TLS platform via the Service app. In addition if your facility allows free roaming pets, the Service can be disrupted or can generate multiple unreliable Alert Conditions. If your facility allows patients or residents to have resident pets you must notify TLS prior to each such pet being brought to the facility. Failure to notify us of pets residing in your facility as required will invalidate all obligations hereunder to provide the Service with respect to the affected areas where such pets will reside. TLS’ obligation to provide the Service shall automatically be suspended as of (a) the date you remove or disconnect any of the Devices at your premises, until such Device is restored or reconnected; (b) interruption of any communications system or interface through which your Devices and Service app contact the TLS platform, for the duration of such interruption; (d) your failure to notify us of pets permanently living in your facility, until we are made aware of such pets; or (d) termination of this Agreement. TLS may, without prior notice, suspend or terminate your access to the Service, in the event of (i) your default in performance of this Agreement or in event of power failures or your Devices sending excessive miscommunications; (ii) if an End User violates this Agreement or the EULA or uses the Service in a manner contrary to the foregoing or contrary to Applicable Laws. You and your End Users are not entitled to use the Service or to cause its use in a manner other than permitted hereunder, in particular (i) to rent, to lease, to borrow, to reproduce, to resell or to distribute in any other way, to give to a third party or to grant third parties access to (ii) to use for the development of other products/services; (iii) to transfer the rights to use to third parties or to grant third parties access to; (iv) to change the source code, to translate, to reproduce, to decompile, to examine its functions, unless provided by mandatory statutory law; and (v) to remove, hide or change any legal notes relating to copyrights, trademarks or other intellectual property rights of TLS.
11. ABNORMAL CONDITION DETECTION. You acknowledge that the Service, in conjunction with Devices, is designed to detect Alert Conditions but may (a) not detect all abnormal conditions, and (b) be activated even if no abnormal condition exists. You acknowledge that the Service may falsely report Alert Conditions in the event of children and/or pets running, falling or jumping on the ground. You additionally acknowledge that in the event that the Service detects multiple persons (including any children or pets) in a room and an abnormal condition, the Service will not issue any notification of the Alert Condition. TLS shall have no liability in connection with any Alert Condition, whether the Service fails to detect such condition or if an Alert condition is identified by the TLS platform when no abnormal condition exists. You should not rely exclusively on the Service but should also use a telephone to dial 911 or any other emergency number for assistance. You further acknowledge and agrees that the Devices and the Service together or separately, are not a signal denoting any medical emergency, requiring TLS to contact or dispatch any medical, hospital, ambulance, or other like entity, person or service. You agree that it is your sole responsibility to: (a) prepare for any medical emergency, and (b) contact or dispatch, and/or make other arrangements to contact or dispatch, medical assistance if and when necessary, by means other than through the Service.
12. SERVICE LIMITATIONS. You acknowledge and agree that we do not represent or warrant that the Service will prevent death, bodily or personal injury or damage to patients or residents of your facility, or any other persons who may use the Service. We make no representation of warranty as to the accuracy of the Service’s detection of Alert Conditions or the promptness of notices sent to End Users, and we have no control over the response time or capability of any End Users who may be notified as a result of notifications generated by the Service. You further understand that the Service or any Devices service may fail to function properly. You understand that this is not a security system, or a fire warning system and the police or fire department will not be notified in the event an appropriate Alert Condition is detected by the Service. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT TLS WILL NOT SEND ANY PERSONNEL TO YOUR FACILITY IN RESPONSE TO ANY ALERT CONDITION. WE DO NOT PROVIDE MEDICAL SERVICES. NOT ALL FUNCTIONALITY OF THE SERVICE, INCLUDING THE ABILITY TO DETECT ALARM CONDITIONS OR SEND MESSAGE TO END USERS, IS AVAILABLE AT ALL TIMES, PARTICULARLY WHEN YOUR CONNECTIVITY CANNOT OR DOES NOT PROVIDE AN ADEQUATE SIGNAL OR SERVICE, YOUR SERVICE APP IS NOT RUNNING OR IS NOT ACTIVE OR ACTIVATED OR YOUR DEVICES IS OR ARE NOT ACTIVE OR ACTIVATED.

TLS shall have no liability for police, fire or EMT non-response, response, or any damage to person or property in connection with any Alert Condition detected by the Service and you shall be solely responsible for any fees, costs or fines associated with any of the foregoing. You are solely responsible for your End Users’ response to any Alert Conditions, and the timing and the consequence of such response. You are responsible to train your End Users in the correct use of the Service, the monitoring of the Service for Alert Conditions and the proper sequence of verification and reaction to Alert Conditions.

16. LIMITED WARRANTY. TLS warrants that the functionality of the Service will substantially conform to the then current Documentation, provided that: (i) Customer and its End Users have used the Service in accordance with the Documentation, this Agreement, the EULA and Applicable Laws; (ii) installation of the Devices and Service has been made in accordance with the Device Instructions and the Documentation; (iii) the Devices meet the inspection and maintenance requirements and intervals set forth in the Documentation and the Service has only been used with Devices; (iv) any deviation that may occur is not caused by the Devices and/or other third party hardware, software or data or from Customer or its End Users’ or other third party actions; and (v) any deviation that may occur materially affects the functionality of the Service. The above limited warranty only applies provided that Customer (i) notifies TLS in writing of any such deviations from the Documentation within five (5) days from discovery of such deviation, and (ii) sends at its own cost any necessary material needed to assess the deviation to TLS or TLS’ designee. Subject to the foregoing, TLS will use commercially reasonable efforts to remedy the deviation as soon as practicable, considering the nature of the deviation and any other circumstances at hand. IN THE EVENT OF A BREACH OF THE ABOVE WARRANTY, TLS’ SOLE OBLIGATIONS AND CUSTOMER’S SOLE REMEDIES ARE FOR TLS TO REPAIR OR REPLACE THE FAULTY SOFTWARE SERVICE SO AS TO CAUSE THE SERVICE TO SUBSTANTIALLY CONFORM TO THE DOCUMENTATIONS. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY STATED IN THE ABOVE LIMITED WARRANTY, YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE AND DEVICES CONNECTED THERETO, AND SERVICES THEREIN ARE AT YOUR OWN RISK AND THE SERVICE AND ANY DEVICES WE SELL YOU ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS, WITHOUT ANY WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED.

You understand: (a) we are not an insurer of you, the personal safety of any patient, resident or other person in your facility or your property; (b) you should provide any insurance on yourself and End Users and any other person who may use the Service; (c) the amount you pay to us is based only on the value of the services we provide; (d) the Service and our monitoring service may not always operate properly for various reasons; (e) it is difficult to determine, in advance, how fast your End Users, or others will respond to an Alert Condition; (f) the Service, Devices and all communication protocols and transmission lines are limited; (g) it is difficult to determine, in advance, what portion, if any, of any property loss, personal injury or death would be proximately caused by our failure to perform, our negligence, or a failure of the Service. THEREFORE YOU AGREE THAT (A) THAT EVEN IF A COURT OR OTHER TRIBUNAL DECIDES THAT OUR BREACH OF THIS AGREEMENT, OR A FAILURE OF THE SERVICE, DEVICES, OR OUR NEGLIGENCE CAUSED OR ALLOWED ANY HARM OR DAMAGE (WHETHER PROPERTY DAMAGE, PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH) TO YOU OR ANY PATIENT OR RESIDENT IN YOUR FACILITY, TLS’ ENTIRE LIABILITY UNDER ANY PROVISION OF THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE GREATER OF THE AMOUNT ACTUALLY PAID BY YOU FOR THE SERVICE DURING THE PRECEDING THREE (3) MONTHS OR U.S. $10,000.00, AND THIS SHALL BE YOUR ONLY REMEDY REGARDLESS OF WHAT LEGAL THEORY IS AVAILABLE TO DETERMINE THAT TLS WAS LIABLE FOR THE INJURY, DAMAGE OR LOSS; AND (B) IN NO EVENT WILL TLS, ITS AFFILIATES OR THEIR LICENSORS, SERVICE PROVIDERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, OFFICERS OR DIRECTORS BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, DEATH, PERSONAL INJURY, PAIN AND SUFFERING, EMOTIONAL DISTRESS, LOSS OF REVENUE, LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF BUSINESS OR ANTICIPATED SAVINGS, LOSS OF USE, LOSS OF GOODWILL, LOSS OF DATA, AND WHETHER CAUSED BY TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), BREACH OF CONTRACT OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF FORESEEABLE, ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE, OR INABILITY TO USE, THE SERVICE, INCLUDING THE SERVICE APP, ANY DEVICES, ANY CONTENT ON THE SERVICE OR ANY SERVICES OR ITEMS OBTAINED THROUGH THE SERVICE. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein and except to the extent prohibited by Applicable Laws, Customer shall be obliged to take adequate measures to avert and mitigate losses and damages. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for certain damages. Accordingly, some of the above disclaimers and limitations of liability may not apply to Customer. To the extent that TLS may not, as a matter of applicable law, disclaim any implied warranty or limit its liabilities, the scope and duration of such warranty and the extent of TLS’s liability shall be the minimum permitted under such Applicable Law.
