1. WHAT invisaWear PROVIDES
invisaWear will provide you with access to live agents who can dispatch the necessary emergency personnel to your location and provide alerts to your emergency contacts upon your request. In order to use the personal security service, you must have a cellular device that is connected to a telecommunications service provider, the personal security app must be running on a compatible cellular device with an eligible operating system, you must provide the personal security app with access to your location, and personal security app notifications must be enabled. In order to use a personal security device to access the personal security services, you must have the personal security device with you, the personal security device must have sufficient battery life, the device must be paired with your cellular device using bluetooth, bluetooth must be enabled on your cellular device at time of use, and the personal security device must be in close proximity to the paired cellular device when a request for service is sent. When you request assistance, your location will be shared with agents at a invisaWear Central Monitoring Station. The assigned agent will attempt to contact you and verify the incident. If the agent cannot reach you and / or the incident is verified, the agent will contact emergency services on your behalf and request a dispatch and an alert will be sent to your emergency contacts. Location data will be updated and stored for 30 minutes. Location data will be shared with emergency contacts and emergency services. Other profile information may be shared with emergency services to facilitate their response and is collected for this purpose.
invisaWear is not responsible for the maintenance or repair of facilities or equipment owned by you, and does not guarantee that the Services will operate with telecommunications services not provided by invisaWear. The Services require electrical or battery power to operate, which you must supply at no charge to invisaWear, and you acknowledge and accept that you may lose service during a power outage unless you supply, install and maintain at your own expense a battery backup power system
If you use a personal security device, you must test the device battery and connection once a month, and replace the device before its battery loses power. As a courtesy, personal security users may be notified in the personal security app when the battery power is low, and you must act quickly to replace the device if you receive such notification.
invisaWear may provide you with a monthly bill in electronic format made available to you over the Internet, setting forth the charges incurred for use of the Services. Your monthly bill will be sent in paper form if electronic billing is not made available by invisaWear. If invisaWear makes your bill available over the Internet, it is your responsibility to create an online account management profile, to subscribe to electronic bill notification, and to check your online account every month for your bills. Regularly recurring charges are billed in advance and charges incurred on a per-use basis are billed in arrears. If your bill is lost or if you do not receive a bill, you are still responsible for making the required payment to invisaWear.
d) Forced Entry
You acknowledge that providing the Services may require forced entry to your premises in response to an alert, if you are not present or unable to respond. You agree that invisaWear is not responsible for the damages so caused and you will indemnify the invisaWear Entities and its vendors against any claim made by a third party as a result of such forced entry.
