2.4 SOS Emergency

The SOMEWEAR LABS SOS Emergency services shall be subject to the terms below as well as the terms of the contracted third party SOS emergency monitoring services provider, GEOS (“GEOS”), located at http://www.geosresponse.com/service-agreement.html.

2.4.1 SOS Emergency. Your Somewear Service (including data plan) includes SOSEmergency service. Somewear has contracted with a third-party provider, GEOS, to provide SOS emergency monitoring services. Provision of SOS Emergency services is subject to the terms of this Agreement. Somewear reserves the right to disclose personal and location data to its third-party service providers, and/or to competent legal authority, as well as remotely activate SOS features when notified by competent legal authority that a distress situation exists for the user. Somewear intends that the GEOS International Emergency Response Coordination Center (the “IERCC”) will be available at all times in all locations where your Somewear Device works; however, it is possible that at some times and some locations, the IERCC will not receive your transmission or that your transmission will be delayed. The emergency responder(s) shall determine when, how, even if, to conduct a search and rescue in accordance with their standard policies and procedures, subject to such constraints as operational limitations, available resources, technical feasibility, meteorological conditions, medical and/or safety concerns whether for you or the emergency responder(s). In no event does the Agreement create a duty to rescue.

2.4.2 SOS Monitoring. The Somewear Device transmits SOS Emergency Signals received, along with applicable information your provided when registering your Somewear Device and available location coordinates, to the IERCC. The IERCC maintains a database of emergency responders in regions throughout the world (the “IERCC Database”), and provides SOS Emergency Signal monitoring twenty-four (24) hours a day, seven (7) days a week and 365 days a year. Upon receipt of a SOS Emergency Signal, IERCC personnel will: i) contact, if available, the primary and secondary contacts identified by you in your Registration Data to attempt to validate the SOS Emergency Signal, ii) use the IERCC database to identify appropriate emergency responder(s) according to available location coordinates; iii) contact the appropriate emergency responder(s) and inform them of the relevant facts in GEOS’ possession (including your Registration Data information and/or location coordinates); iv) if you are traveling outside of your home territory, and it is consistent with GEOS’ procedures, contact the Embassy of your government consistent with the information you provided upon registration of your Somewear Device either in the location identified by the Location Information or their Washington, DC based

Embassy, and provide them all relevant facts in GEOS’ possession; and, v) provide updates of

location coordinates as available to the identified emergency responder. Upon contacting the

emergency responder(s) and/or, as appropriate, the Embassy, and informing them of all

relevant facts, Somewear and GEOS are released from all further legal responsibility and/or obligation to take any further action whatsoever. Should GEOS have reasonable cause to

believe that an emergency condition does not exist, GEOS reserves the right to solely contact

the primary and secondary contacts identified by you.

2.4.3 False SOS Emergency Transmissions. You are solely responsible for any charges that may be assessed by emergency responders for either false SOS Emergency Signals and/or in relation to search and rescue activities resulting from you or your authorized users’ transmission of a SOS Emergency Signal. Should you deliberately or negligently misuse the SOS Emergency service, the SOS service provider, GEOS, reserves the right to assess a fee in order to recoup their costs in relation to responding to such misuse. Negligent and deliberate misuse includes, but is not limited to, pressing the SOS button to ‘see if it works’ or otherwise knowingly pressing the SOS button when no emergency situation exists. Should it be determined by Somewear that you have deliberately or negligently misused the SOS Emergency service, Somewear shall provide your credit card information on record to GEOS. GEOS shall then, without further notice, bill your credit card the appropriate fee, calculated at a rate of $340 per hour, or stated part thereof, for a minimum charge of one (1) hour and maximum charge of two (2) hours, for each such false SOS Emergency Signal event, and you shall be responsible to pay any such fee. 

2.5 Transmission Speeds. For Data Plans that include unlimited texting or tracking, data transmission speeds may be reduced for the remainder of any billing period in which your message transmission volume exceeds 1000 text messages (or the approximate equivalent amount of data). This volume threshold is subject to change, so please periodically visit Somewearlabs.com for updates. If your message transmission volume results in transmission speed reduction for two (2) or more consecutive billing periods, data transmission speeds may be reduced for subsequent billing periods until your transmission volume falls below threshold levels. SOS transmission speed will not be impacted by reduced data transmission speeds. 

3.0 SOMEWEAR GLOBAL HOTSPOT DATA PLAN 

Your Somewear Service, consists of, at minimum, the Somewear Global Hotspot data plan and any

data limits, or optional services selected by you either when you activate your Somewear Device or any that you may add during your Term.

3.1 Activate with Somewear Only. You must activate your Somewear Device directly with Somewear using the activation portal at www.Somewearlabs.com/getstarted and choosing one of the available Data Plans. Activation of the Somewear Devices on non-Somewear Iridium accounts may severely impact the functioning of your Somewear Device and, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, will void any warranties. Injury or death could result from an improperly activated Somewear Device. Activation of Somewear Devices on non-Somewear Iridium accounts violates the terms of your agreement with Somewear. 

3.2 Changes to Services. You agree that Somewear or its service providers (including Iridium, and GEOS) may make changes to the Somewear Services and Data Plans in order to comply with applicable laws, to maintain or improve the Somewear Services or for other business reasons without notice to you and without liability for any changes in your ability to use the Somewear Services or the Somewear Device, including compatibility issues with the Somewear Device, as a result of such changes. 

3.3 Term. The Term of the plan is one (1) month starting on the date of service activation. You are committed for one (1) month of service unless otherwise agreed.

3.4 Activation and Annual Fees. An activation fee will be charged to you upon initial activation of a Somewear Device on any annual Data Plan. An annual usage fee will be charged to you upon activation of a Somewear Device on a monthly Data Plan or any Data Plan other than an annual Data Plan, and will be charged to you annually on the anniversary of activation. 

3.5 Upgrade or Downgrade. You may upgrade a Data Plan for any Somewear Device to a more inclusive Data Plan of the same type at any time. No charge applies to changing to a more inclusive annual Data Plan; a fee applies to changing to a less inclusive annual Data Plan. To downgrade an annual Data Plan to a less inclusive annual Data Plan, a change plan fee will be charged to you. Any downgrade of an annual Data Plan will take effect immediately and your account will be credited on a prorated basis for any applicable price difference, less applicable fees. No change plan fee will be charged to downgrade a monthly Plan (or other Data Plan that is not an annual Data Plan) to a less inclusive Data Plan of the same type. Any downgrades of a non-Annual Data Plan will take effect at the end of the applicable billing period and are subject to an additional one (1) month term commitment. 

3.6 Renewal. All Data Plans automatically renew at the end of their Term for an additional month to month Term unless you cancel by notifying Somewear as provided in Section 3.8 where required by law, Somewear will provide you with notice of the renewal of your Service Plan.

3.7 Non-Refundable. Pre-paid Data Plan fees are non-refundable unless Somewear cancels the service, in which event you will receive a prorated refund for airtime for the unused portion of the Plan. Pre-paid Data Plans may not be transferred to a third-party account.

3.8 Cancellation. To cancel your Data Plan, you can deactivate your device in the online Somewear portal. You may also email hello@Somewearlabs.com to cancel.

3.9 Termination by Somewear. You agree that Somewear may terminate this Agreement and the provision of Services to you at any time without notice or liability to you if you are in breach of this Agreement. In the event this Agreement is terminated or you cancel any Data Plan, you must cease using the Somewear Services immediately.

3.10 Additional Charges. Your cell phone service provider and/or internet provider may charge you or your recipients additional fees in relation to any SMS messages, social connectivity messages and/or other emails and/or data sent by you. Please familiarize yourself with any such applicable plans, services and associated fees before using your Somewear Device or the Somewear Services. You are responsible for any such applicable charges and fees.

4.0 USE OF YOUR SOMEWEAR DEVICE. 

4.1 Familiarization with your Somewear Device. You understand and agree that it is your responsibility to familiarize yourself with the operation of your Somewear Device, including reading your User Manual, available at Somewearlabs.com/FAQ. You agree that you will use the Somewear Device only in accordance with those instructions. It is also highly recommended that you review the Help available at Somewearlabs.com and practice properly using your Somewear Device by sending test messages and fixing your GPS coordinates as described. 

4.2 Important Tips. Your Somewear Device needs a clear view of the sky to obtain a GPS signal and provide the most accurate location information. It is not reliable indoors or in a cave. Orienting your Somewear Device so that the Somewear logo and on/off LED are oriented to the sky will improve performance, and you should keep your Somewear Device at least 12 inches away from other GPS devices and mobile phones. Please read your Quick Start Guide or User Manual and follow the instructions to pair your Somewear Device with a smartphone.

4.3 Message Schedule. Redundancy is built into your Somewear Device to ensure more of your messages are transmitted. It is normal for some Somewear messages to be blocked by everyday conditions; the view of the sky is often blocked due to hills, buildings, or other obstructions. This is why Somewear automatically retries messages until it receives a satellite acknowledgement. Placement of your Somewear unit can make a difference. Experiment with placement until you are familiar with the reliability of your operating environment.

5.0 PAYMENT

5.1 Timely Payments. You agree to pay all applicable activation, usage, cancellation, and disconnection fees, plus any applicable taxes, surcharges, and fees on time as provided in your Data Plan. Since your Data Plan will renew automatically at the end of each term if you don’t cancel in accordance with Section 3.6 above, Somewear will bill your credit card at the time of renewal, or within thirty (30) days prior to the renewal, of each subsequent service term in accordance with the terms of your Data Plan. This bill is due and payable in the currency specified in your Data Plan. If your plan specifies monthly billing, then the monthly recurring charges are billed monthly in advance. 

5.2 Late Payments. You agree to pay a late charge of the lesser of (i) 1.5% per month or (ii) the maximum legal rate if your bill is not paid within ten (10) days after the due date. This late charge is applicable to the unpaid balance as of the due date and will be billed on subsequent invoices and statements. Somewear may suspend the Somewear Services in the event of late payment in accordance with any applicable standards or codes. If it does so, Somewear may charge a reactivation fee for each suspended Data Plan. 

5.3 Event of Credit Card Failure. You will be notified by Somewear via an email message sent to your last known email address the first time your credit card fails. A second notice will be sent 7 days later, followed by a final notice 14 days after the first notice, if the credit card continues to fail. If Somewear does not hear from you that you have rectified the problem, any Somewear Device associated with the credit card will be deactivated 30 days from the first notice. 

Cancellation of a Data Plan due to a credit card failure will not relieve you of any otherwise applicable fees that may be due and will result in late payment fees and a reactivation fee. Additionally, until all applicable payments and fees have been paid in full, (i) you will not be able to activate any Somewear Device or use the Somewear Services and (ii) no Somewear Device currently linked to your account may be activated on any other account.

5.5 Promotions. If you use a promotion code for your purchase, you certify that you qualify for the applicable promotion. You agree to the terms of the promotion, including any time limitations, and you agree to provide your credit card information for any additional services and to extend the Somewear Services beyond the promotional period. 

5.6 Data Transmission/No Credits. Somewear will exercise a commercially reasonable level of care but makes no representation as to the success of any data transmission. Regardless of whether a data transmission is successful, no refunds will be given. In addition to limitations resulting from incorrect use (e.g., next to or under an obstruction), satellite communications systems have inherent characteristics that can create dropped data transmissions. Dropped data transmissions, regardless of type, will not be credited regardless of cause. Somewear shall not be liable for any damages that may result from such dropped data transmission. 

5.7 Taxes and Fees. Your Data Plan price for the Somewear Services does not include all sales, usage, excise, ad valorem, goods and services, harmonized sales, property or any other taxes now or hereafter imposed, directly or indirectly, by any governmental authority or agency with respect to the Somewear Services. You are required to pay these taxes not already collected for you by Somewear and these taxes may be added to the final price charged to you in your bill. 

Your Data Plan price for the Somewear Services may not include certain applicable surcharges and/or fees associated with the Somewear Services, including fees associated with the Federal Universal Service Fund. Such surcharges and/or fees may be added to your bill by Somewear in accordance with all applicable laws, standards and codes.

5.8 Credit Approval / Credit Card Trial Authorization. Initiation or continuation of the Somewear Services is subject to credit approval by Somewear. If you elect to pay via credit card, Somewear requires direct payment by credit card or an authorized guarantee of payment by a valid accepted credit card. Somewear may seek authorization of your credit card account prior to your first activation/purchase to validate that you can charge the applicable fees to access the Somewear Services. By authorizing Somewear to charge a credit card trial authorization for the fees associated with your subscription, you are authorizing Somewear to automatically continue charging that card (or any replacement card if the original card is renewed, lost, stolen, or changed for any reason by the card issuer, and the issuer informs Somewear of the new replacement card account) for all fees or charges associated with your subscription including any renewal fees as described below. You authorize the card issuer to pay any amounts described herein and authorize Somewear, or any other company that acts as a billing agent for Somewear, to continue to attempt to charge all sums described herein to your credit card account until such amounts are paid in full. 

5.9 Credit Card Authorization. BY AUTHORIZING SOMEWEAR TO DEBIT YOUR CREDIT CARD, YOU REPRESENT THAT YOU ARE THE AUTHORIZED OWNER OR USER OF YOUR CREDIT CARD AND THAT YOU ARE A RESPONSIBLE PARTY FOR THAT CARD. YOU GRANT SOMEWEAR ACCESS TO AND THE RIGHT TO REVIEW THE INFORMATION IN, AND YOUR REFERENCES SUBMITTED WITH, THE DATA PLAN, OBTAIN YOUR CREDIT REPORTS AND CREDIT HISTORY (IF THIS IS PERMITTED BY THE LAW OF YOUR LOCAL JURISDICTION), AND/OR ALL OTHER RELEVANT INFORMATION AND MATERIALS THAT SOMEWEAR REASONABLY BELIEVES IS DESIRABLE FOR THE PURPOSE OF IDENTIFYING YOUR FINANCIAL STATUS AND CREDITWORTHINESS. FURTHER, YOU AUTHORIZE SOMEWEAR TO DEBIT YOUR CREDIT CARD IN ORDER TO RENEW YOUR SERVICE PRIOR TO THE START OF EVERY SERVICE TERM, UP UNTIL SUCH TIME THAT YOU CANCEL THE SERVICE IN ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION 3.8. 

5.10 Cost of Collection. You agree to pay Somewear for all collection costs, including without limitation the standard fees of any collection agency, reasonable attorney and legal fees, and any other costs incurred by Somewear in exercising any of its rights under this Agreement.

11.0 HARDWARE LIMITED WARRANTY

The warranty period for the Somewear Device is nine (9) months from your date of purchase with respect to the correction of defects in the materials or workmanship.   THIS REMEDY IS YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR ANY BREACH OF WARRANTY.

In our sole discretion, Somewear reserves the right to either repair or replace the unit with a new or refurbished Somewear Device. Such repairs or replacement will be made at no charge to the customer for parts or labor.  You will be responsible for any shipping charges incurred to send the device to and from Somewear. The repaired or replaced Somewear Device will be warranted for ninety (90) days from the date the Somewear Device is shipped to the customer, or for the balance of the original warranty, whichever is longer. This warranty is voided if a repair or modification is performed by someone other than Somewear. 

This warranty does not cover failures of a Somewear Device due to negligence, abuse, misuse, accidents, tampering, alteration or unauthorized disassembly or modification.  This warranty also does not cover cosmetic damage, such as scratches, nicks and dents.  The Somewear Devices may not be used for commercial applications or rentals unless authorized in writing by Somewear.

This warranty applies to the original purchaser of the product ONLY.  Products purchased through online auctions (that means purchases not made through somewearlabs.com, on Amazon from Somewear Labs, or an approved reseller) are not eligible for warranty coverage. Online auction confirmations are not accepted for warranty verification. To obtain warranty service, an original or copy of the sales receipt from the original retailer is required. 

SOMEWEAR DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL LIABILITY FOR ANY SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LOSS OF REVENUES OR PROFITS, EVEN IF SOMEWEAR HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THIS LIMITED WARRANTY CONTAINED HEREIN IS IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING ANY LIABILITY ARISING UNDER ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE. THIS WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS, WHICH MAY VARY FROM STATE TO STATE.

This warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may also have other rights which vary by jurisdiction. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of relief such as incidental or consequential damages, or limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. 

To obtain warranty service, contact Somewear Product Support for shipping instructions and an RMA tracking number. Securely pack the device and a copy of the original sales receipt, which is required as the proof of purchase for warranty repairs. Send the device to the Somewear warranty service station.  Somewear reserves the right to refuse warranty if a receipt is not provided or if the receipt is incomplete/illegible. 

The terms and conditions of the Somewear Device Limited Warranty may be updated by

Somewear at any time and without notice. If there is any conflict between the terms contained in

this Agreement and the terms contained at https://Somewearlabs.com/legal, then the terms

contained at https://Somewearlabs.com/legal shall supersede and replace the terms contained in

Warranty 

Somewear Labs Warranty

What does this warranty cover?

Somewear Labs Inc. warranty period for the Somewear device is nine (9) months from the customer’s date of purchase with respect to the correction of defects in the materials or workmanship.   THIS REMEDY IS YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR ANY BREACH OF WARRANTY.

What will Somewear do to correct a warranty issue?

In our sole discretion, Somewear reserves the right to either repair or replace the unit with a new or refurbished Somewear device. Such repairs or replacement will be made at no charge to the customer for parts or labor.  The customer will be responsible for any shipping charges incurred to send the device to and from Somewear. The repaired or replaced Somewear device will be warranted for ninety (90) days from the date the device is shipped to the customer, or for the balance of the original warranty, whichever is longer. This warranty is voided if a repair or modification is performed by someone other than Somewear. 

What is NOT covered by this warranty?

This warranty does not cover failures of a Somewear device due to negligence, abuse, misuse, accidents, tampering, alteration or unauthorized disassembly or modification.  This warranty also does not cover cosmetic damage, such as scratches, nicks and dents.  The Somewear devices may not be used for commercial applications or rentals unless authorized in writing by Somewear.

Who does this warranty apply to?

This warranty applies to the original purchaser of the product ONLY.  Products purchased through online auctions (that means purchases not made through somewearlabs.com, on Amazon from Somewear Labs, or an approved reseller) are not eligible for warranty coverage. Online auction confirmations are not accepted for warranty verification. To obtain warranty service, an original or copy of the sales receipt from the original retailer is required. 

What warranties and liability do not apply?

SOMEWEAR DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL LIABILITY FOR ANY SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LOSS OF REVENUES OR PROFITS, EVEN IF SOMEWEAR HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THIS LIMITED WARRANTY CONTAINED HEREIN IS IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING ANY LIABILITY ARISING UNDER ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE. THIS WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS, WHICH MAY VARY FROM STATE TO STATE.

This warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may also have other rights which vary by jurisdiction. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of relief such as incidental or consequential damages, or limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. 

How do I obtain warranty service?

To obtain warranty service, contact Somewear Product Support for shipping instructions and an RMA tracking number. Securely pack the device and a copy of the original sales receipt, which is required as the proof of purchase for warranty repairs. Send the device to the Somewear warranty service station.  Somewear reserves the right to refuse warranty if a receipt is not provided or if the receipt is incomplete/illegible.
