SimpliSafe Terms of Service
Last updated: February 2023
This is an Agreement (the “Agreement”) between you (“you” or the “Subscriber”) and SimpliSafe, Inc. (“we” or “SimpliSafe”). In this Agreement, “System” means the products you have purchased from SimpliSafe; “Services” mean the services you have selected to receive from SimpliSafe, including any Emergency Dispatch Services (as described in Section 23 below), Video-Related Services (as described in Section 21 below), Account Management Services (as described in Section 20 below), the Application, defined as the software or subscription services that may be downloaded to your smartphone, tablet or other connected device (or any related or connected third-party mobile devices or product peripherals that control or connect to any of the foregoing) to access Services remotely and the customer support Services provided by SimpliSafe in support of any of the foregoing; “Premises” means the premises at which the System is located. The term “you,” as used in this Agreement, means any person or entity who accesses or uses the Services and any person or entity who creates an account and accepts this Agreement and accesses or uses the Services, including any person granted access to the Services by you.
LIFE SAFETY NOTICE: IF YOU PURCHASED A SYSTEM THAT INCLUDES SMOKE DETECTORS OR CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTORS, OR IF YOU ADD SMOKE DETECTORS OR CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTORS AT A LATER TIME, THERE MAY BE SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS OR STANDARDS FOR THE INSTALLATION, MAINTENANCE AND LOCATION OF SUCH DETECTORS. CONTACT YOUR LOCAL AUTHORITY HAVING JURISDICTION OR CONSULT A QUALIFIED PROFESSIONAL TO ASSIST IN THE INSTALLATION, MAINTENANCE AND LOCATION OF SUCH DETECTORS. YOU HAVE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY FOR COMPLYING WITH ANY AND ALL CODES, LAWS AND STANDARDS THAT MAY APPLY TO THE INSTALLATION, PLACEMENT AND MAINTENANCE OF THE SYSTEM.
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, Eligibility, and Your Account.
(a) SimpliSafe will provide you the Services subject to the terms of this Agreement.
(b) Only individuals age 18 and older are permitted to subscribe for the Services and register for an Account.
(e) If you contact SimpliSafe’s customer service, you hereby consent to the means by which such contact was initiated. You similarly consent to SimpliSafe contacting you through any of the means that SimpliSafe makes available utilizing the contact information identified in your Account. This may include one-way or two-way video-enabled customer service communication methods, whether made available via your mobile device, through the Application or any other mobile or web interface now existing or later developed. Except as otherwise expressly agreed by you under a separate services agreement, SimpliSafe will not charge you any additional fees to deliver, or for you to receive, such customer support Services; however, your wireless service provider may charge a fee for air-time or data usage associated therewith. Check with your wireless carrier if you have questions about your wireless plan.
(f) You also agree that federal, state or local ordinances or rules around handling of different types of alarms and requests for first responder dispatch may apply to your home security system and monitoring service. You understand that our ability to provide any professional monitoring services will be subject to local rules and practices if your activate service in an area subject to any of these regulations and practices. For example, certain municipalities may require multiple alarms to be received or real time audio or visual confirmation of an alarm before they will dispatch first responders while other municipalities may require that alarms from certain life safety alarms such as CO alarms require calls to emergency response regardless if the occupants believe it to be a false alarm.
2. Term and Termination. The term of this Agreement will continue until this Agreement is terminated pursuant to this section. SimpliSafe or Subscriber may terminate this Agreement for any reason or no reason following notice sent to the other as set forth in this section and the confirmation of legitimacy of the Subscriber request by SimpliSafe. Subscriber shall provide notice of termination to SimpliSafe by (1) regular mail, postage prepaid, or overnight delivery, by a reputable, national overnight delivery service, to SimpliSafe's then current principal place of business, (2) calling SimpliSafe Customer Support at 1-800-548-9508 and following the instructions provided, or (3) by any other applicable Service cancellation method deployed by SimpliSafe (including any App “Initiate Cancellation” processes which may create a cancellation request resulting in a call back by SimpliSafe to a user provided phone number to confirm cancellation). Such notice by Subscriber shall be effective upon SimpliSafe's receipt and confirmation thereof. In the case of a written request for cancellation, SimpliSafe reserves the right to contact the subscriber to perform the company’s standard account holder security questions to confirm the legitimacy and accuracy of the request.
You understand that termination of these Services can potentially impact the ability of life saving services to be rendered and may require confirmation by Customer Service to confirm the legitimacy of any such request (e.g. the identity of the account holder, that the request for termination is authentic and not made under duress by any third parties, requested date for cancellation if it is in the future, etc). You understand that Customer Service engagement is the best way to ensure the cancellation of potentially life saving services is handled properly.
SimpliSafe shall provide notice of termination to Subscriber by e-mail sent to the email address on file with SimpliSafe for your current online account. SimpliSafe's termination shall be effective when SimpliSafe sends the e-mail notice. If you do not provide SimpliSafe an e-mail address, then SimpliSafe 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 SimpliSafe sent the notice. Upon termination of the Agreement, SimpliSafe shall have no further obligation to Subscriber and Subscriber shall have no further obligation to SimpliSafe other than (i) the obligation respecting the payment of any monies due to SimpliSafe for services rendered; and (ii) the obligations set forth in Sections 3-8, inclusive, 13-19, inclusive, and 24-41, inclusive.
Once a subscriber’s Service is activated (after any applicable promotion period and any applicable practice period (i.e. 3 or 5 days), SimpliSafe will bill their payment method of choice the monthly fee for said Service for the coming month. Service billing recurs thereafter on a monthly basis on that same day of the month as the original bill date, unless and until the Service is terminated; for any month where that date does not occur, the subscriber will be billed on the last day of the month. Subscriptions terminated before the billing date will not create a charge for the coming month. Notwithstanding the foregoing, SimpliSafe shall refund any unearned service charges with respect to any full calendar month following any termination. SimpliSafe 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 SimpliSafe the periodic service charge in advance. You authorize SimpliSafe to charge your credit/debit card for the periodic (e.g., monthly, quarterly or annually) service charge when due. If charges are declined, SimpliSafe 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, SimpliSafe 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, SimpliSafe may, in its sole discretion, terminate this Agreement and/or discontinue services without notice.
4. INSURANCE. SIMPLISAFE'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 SIMPLISAFE IS NOT AN INSURER AND SHALL NOT PROVIDE INSURANCE COVERAGE AGAINST ANY LOSSES, AS DEFINED BELOW. TO THE EXTENT YOU WISH TO HAVE ANY INSURANCE COVERAGE FOR LOSSES, AS DEFINED BELOW, IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO PROCURE AND MAINTAIN SEPARATE INSURANCE POLICIES FROM AN INSURANCE COMPANY OR COMPANIES, SOLELY AT YOUR COST AND EXPENSE, 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 (INCLUDING Third-Party Products and Services), (IV) THE ACTIVE OR PASSIVE SOLE, JOINT OR SEVERAL NEGLIGENCE OF ANY KIND OR DEGREE OF YOU OR ANY SIMPLISAFE 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) THE 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, (XI) A VIOLATION OF ANY APPLICABLE CONSUMER PROTECTION LAW OR ANY OTHER THEORY OF LIABILITY OR ALLEGED FAULT ON THE PART OF ANY SIMPLISAFE PARTY, (XII) A VIOLATION OF ANY LAW PROHIBITING THE INTERCEPTION OF ORAL COMMUNICATIONS BY ELECTRONIC MEANS, (XIII) THE ACTIONS OF ANY THIRD PARTY IN RESPONDING TO A SIGNAL FROM THE SYSTEM, OR (XIV) ANY UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS, USE OR DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION (COLLECTIVELY, THE "COVERED CLAIMS"). RECOVERY FOR ANY LOSSES, AS DEFINED IN THIS SECTION 4, SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE INSURANCE YOU PURCHASE SEPARATELY FROM AN INSURANCE COMPANY, IF ANY.
5. LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY AND RELEASE. BY AGREEING TO THESE TERMS, YOU ARE RELEASING SIMPLISAFE, ITS AFFILIATES, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, SHAREHOLDERS, EMPLOYEES, SUBCONTRACTORS, AGENTS AND REPRESENTATIVES (COLLECTIVELY, THE "SIMPLISAFE PARTIES"), TOGETHER WITH ANY PROVIDERS OF Third-Party Products and Services (AS HEREINAFTER DEFINED), 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 SIMPLISAFE 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 SIMPLISAFE 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. THIS LIMITATION IS CUMULATIVE AND WILL NOT BE INCREASED BY THE EXISTENCE OF MORE THAN ONE INCIDENT OR CLAIM. SIMPLISAFE DISCLAIMS ALL LIABILITY OF ANY KIND OF SIMPLISAFE’S LICENSORS AND SUPPLIERS. SIMPLISAFE 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 SIMPLISAFE TO PERFORM ANY OF ITS OBLIGATIONS. THIS AGREED-UPON AMOUNT IS NOT A PENALTY, AND IS THE SOLE REMEDY. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
6. NO WARRANTIES. THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE, “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE”, AND SIMPLISAFE AND ITS LICENSORS AND SUPPLIERS EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING THE WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ACCURACY AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.
7. Release of Insured Losses; Waiver of Subrogation. You release SimpliSafe 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 SimpliSafe for money paid to you or on your behalf.
8. INDEMNIFICATION. IF ANYONE OTHER THAN YOU (INCLUDING YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY) ASKS ANY SIMPLISAFE 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 SIMPLISAFE PARTY, YOU SHALL INDEMNIFY, DEFEND AND HOLD SUCH SIMPLISAFE 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 SIMPLISAFE PARTY. THE FOREGOING INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATIONS MAY NOT BE ENFORCEABLE IN SOME STATES, SO SUCH OBLIGATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
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, including as a result of equipment designed or used by a third party for the purpose of causing false alarms or gaining unauthorized access to or otherwise affecting or controlling the Communications Equipment and Services or any Video-Related Services. 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. Your access to, and availability of the Application is dependent on (i) your computer, mobile device, home wiring, home Wi-Fi network, Bluetooth connection, and other related equipment, (ii) your Internet service provider, and (iii) your mobile device carrier. 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 SIMPLISAFE 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.
YOU ALSO UNDERSTAND THAT US DOMESTIC CELLULAR COVERAGE MAY GENERALLY BE LIMITED OR UNAVAILABLE IN CERTAIN GEOGRAPHIES, SUCH AS IN GUAM, US VIRGIN ISLANDS, ETC. IF YOU LIVE IN A GEOGRAPHY WITHOUT CELLULAR COVERAGE, YOUR INSTALLATION AND USAGE OF OUR SYSTEM AND SERVICES WILL BE LIMITED TO AND RELY SOLELY ON NON-CELLULAR COMMUNICATION (I.E. YOUR HOME WIFI CONNECTIVITY). THIS MEANS THAT EVEN THOUGH YOUR SYSTEM INCLUDES A CELLULAR MODULE FOR BACK-UP COMMUNICATION WITH OUR MONITORING CENTER, IF YOU LIVE IN AN AREA WITHOUT CELLULAR COVERAGE, YOUR SYSTEM WILL NOT HAVE ANY BACK-UP COMMUNICATION).
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 additional equipment or services provided by SimpliSafe shall be subject to this Agreement. For example, you may request that, upon the receipt of signals from your System, the monitoring facility notify you of such activity (via live operator telephone call, text message or other form of electronic communication) in addition to or in lieu of providing the Emergency Dispatch Services described in Section 23 hereof. We will honor any such request provided that we have previously agreed in writing to do so. You also agree to pay SimpliSafe for such additional 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 SimpliSafe with any then current license or permit number. You understand that SimpliSafe 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 SimpliSafe) any fines, fees, costs, expenses and penalties relating to the System or Services assessed against you, SimpliSafe 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 SimpliSafe to disconnect the System from the monitoring facility. The exercise of any such rights shall not be deemed a waiver of SimpliSafe’s right to damages.
12. Increase in Charges. SimpliSafe 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 SimpliSafe for your current online account.
13. Default. If you default under this Agreement you shall pay SimpliSafe for all Losses in enforcing its rights under this Agreement.
14. Binding Agreement. This Agreement shall become binding on SimpliSafe 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. SimpliSafe 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 the lesser of (i) one and one-half (1-1/2%) percent per month (eighteen percent (18%) per year) or (ii) the maximum rate permitted under applicable law, 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, provided the imposition of such fee (together with the finance charge listed above) is permitted and not deemed to exceed the maximum charge permitted under applicable law.
18. No Waiver of Breach. Waiver of your breach of this Agreement shall not be a waiver of any subsequent breach. SimpliSafe'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.
20. Account Management Services. "Account Management Services" means services relating to the remote management of the System through the Application 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 Application ("Real-Time Services") and (iii) storage and retrieval through the Application of recorded video and audio stored on our servers, which storage shall be limited and subject to change (a) in accordance with the terms of the plan you selected or (b) if you did not select a plan that provides for terms regarding storage, at our discretion ("Recorded Services"). Video-Related Services may also include the use of cameras or other Product components to allow for human or robotic (pre-recorded warnings or sirens) audio communication with any individuals captured in Real Time Video Services to help monitoring facility personnel engage with persons observed in Real Time Video Services in an attempt to deter unlawful or unpermitted actions and/or to initiate steps to request Emergency Dispatch Services, if deemed necessary in the monitoring facility personnel staff’s sole discretion. You understand and agree that Emergency Dispatch Services may be requested at the monitoring personnel’s sole discretion based on such personnel’s observation of circumstances shown on the Video-Related Services which may reasonably suggest that Emergency Dispatch Services would be appropriate even before performing any Alarm Verification steps. You understand and agree that Video-Related Services may not capture the cause of any given alarm event for a variety of reasons (such as, where your camera(s) is/are not positioned in view of such cause; your camera’s view is obstructed by a physical object; any issues with communication equipment or services; etc) or where an alarm event occurs and the cause of said alarm does not come into view of any Video-Related Services within a reasonably close amount of time.
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 and that individuals should have no expectation of privacy regarding conversations taking place when recordings are activated. You shall use a form of connectivity to permit the transmission of video, audio and Listed Codes (as defined below) from your System to us and any permitted monitoring facility. You shall instruct all persons who may use any Video-Related Services or the System of any limitations with respect to the Video-Related Services or the System. You shall comply with the provisions of Section 19 with respect to the use of the Video-Related Services and 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 telephoning or sending SMS/texting notifications and alerts to other persons provided by you ("Responsible Parties" and in accordance with Section 24 below) or any company that provides on-site response services (“Third Party Responders”) 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 Third Party Responders or by leaving a voicemail or similar type message with the Authorities or Responsible Parties or Third Party Responders. 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. The monitoring facility will not contact (nor attempt to contact) any Third Party Responder on your behalf unless you have specifically contracted with us to provide such service, or you have specifically requested that we provide such service (and we have agreed in writing to do so). Examples of where you might desire that the monitoring facility attempt to contact a Third Party Responder include situations (i) where the Premises are located in a jurisdiction in which the applicable Authorities will not respond to alarm signals at the Premises absent prior verification of an actual alarm event, or (ii) where you desire a faster response time than what might otherwise be provided by the applicable Authorities. Regardless of the circumstances, however, you acknowledge that, upon receipt of signals from your System, the monitoring facility will not contact (nor attempt to contact), nor have any obligation to contact, any Third Party Responder unless you have previously contracted with us to provide such service or you have previously requested that we provide such service (and we have agreed in writing to do so).
24. Terms and Consent to Communicate, for Notifications, and Alerts. These provisions apply to messages, alerts, and notifications sent via SMS/text message or via the SimpliSafe mobile app (collectively, “Notifications”) in connection with SimpliSafe programs, products, and Services. To the extent included in your purchased Services with SimpliSafe, you and Responsible Parties may also be able to send Notifications to confirm dispatch or cancel dispatch via SMS/text message.
SimpliSafe does not charge any fees for you to receive Notifications, other than any monthly fee you may owe if you are a subscriber for SimpliSafe monitoring services. Your wireless service provider may charge a fee for SimpliSafe sending and/or your receiving Notifications and/or for air-time or data usage associated therewith.
Check with your wireless carrier if you have questions about your wireless plan.
By purchasing Services and/or accept these terms, you indicate and acknowledge your consent for SimpliSafe to send you Notifications in connection with the SimpliSafe Services via SMS/text message or via the SimpliSafe mobile app (collectively, “Messaging Services”). You also acknowledge and consent to SimpliSafe sending you Notifications which SimpliSafe may reasonably deem to help you with any necessary account / Service set up steps that are required to fully activate your Services.
If you are a SimpliSafe subscriber and add a contact to receive Notifications, you agree and warrant that you have informed the contact about the nature of the Notifications and obtained consent for SimpliSafe to send Notifications to the contact.
Our 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.
SimpliSafe will not be liable for any delays in the receipt of any such Notifications or failure of such Notifications from being sent. Notifications may not be sent from you or delivered to you if your phone is not in range of a transmission site, or if sufficient network capacity is not available at a particular time. Even within a coverage area, factors beyond the control of SimpliSafe or your wireless carrier may interfere with message delivery, including your equipment, terrain, proximity to buildings, foliage, and weather. You acknowledge that urgent Notifications may not be timely sent or received and that neither SimpliSafe nor your wireless carrier guarantees that such Notifications will be delivered or sent.
For questions regarding the Messaging Services or to stop receiving messages, please contact SimpliSafe Customer Support at 800-548-9508 or visit www.simplisafe.com/support and click on “Contact Us.” If you would like to change the messaging settings associated with your SimpliSafe account, visit the Alerts settings page in your customer account, which may be accessed online at www.simplisafe.com or through the SimpliSafe mobile app.
25. Alarm Verification Prior to Dispatch. Upon receipt of a Listed Code and before calling any Authorities or Responsible Parties or any Third Party Responder, 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 or any Third Party Responder, (collectively, the "Alarm Verification Steps"): (i) telephone or text or attempt to telephone or text the Premises, (ii) if we have access to Real-Time Services or Recorded Services, receive, retrieve and review video from the System, (iii) intercept or retrieve and listen to oral communications or other audio from the System; (iv) optionally engage via Real-Time Services with any persons to confirm the need to report the Listed Code or other potentially urgent safety or security information to the Authorities or any of the Responsible Parties or any Third Party Responder; or (v) 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 or any Third Party Responder. 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 or any Third Party Responder, 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 or any Third Party Responder.
27. Data; Data Storage. Your 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 40 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, SimpliSafe is not responsible for any change to or loss of any data.
28. App Stores. You acknowledge and agree that the availability of the Application is dependent on the third party websites from which you download the Application, e.g. the App Store from Apple or the Android app market from Google (each, an “App Store”). You acknowledge that this Agreement is between you and SimpliSafe and not with an App Store. Each App Store may have its own terms and conditions to which you must agree before downloading mobile applications from it. You agree to comply with, and your license to use the Application is conditioned upon your compliance with, such App Store terms and conditions. To the extent such other terms and conditions from such App Store are less restrictive than, or otherwise conflict with, the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the more restrictive or conflicting terms and conditions in this Agreement apply. SimpliSafe will not charge you any additional fees for you to receive and download the Application; however, your wireless service provider may charge a fee for air-time or data usage associated therewith. Check with your wireless carrier if you have questions about your wireless plan.

31. Suspension of Service. SimpliSafe's obligations under this Agreement are waived automatically without notice and you release SimpliSafe 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 SimpliSafe'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.
32. Time Limitation on Actions. All claims, actions or proceedings against SimpliSafe must be commenced in court within one (1) year after the cause of action has accrued, without judicial extension of time, or such claim, action or proceeding is barred. The time period in this Section must be complied with strictly.

This Agreement and any document made a part of this Agreement contains the entire agreement between the parties respecting the transactions described in such documents and supersedes all prior or current negotiations, commitments, contracts (express or implied) warranties (express or implied) statements and representations, whether written or oral, pertaining to such transactions, all of which shall be deemed merged into this Agreement. NEITHER PARTY HAS MADE ANY REPRESENTATION, TERM, PROMISE, CONDITION, STATEMENT, WARRANTY, OR INDUCEMENT (COLLECTIVELY, "INDUCEMENT") NOT EXPRESSED IN THIS AGREEMENT RESPECTING THE TRANSACTIONS DESCRIBED IN THIS AGREEMENT AND ANY DOCUMENT MADE A PART OF THIS AGREEMENT AND, IN ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, NEITHER PARTY IS RELYING ON ANY INDUCEMENT WHICH IS NOT SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT.
34. Valid Agreement. Should any provision of this Agreement (or portion of this Agreement), or its application to any circumstances, be held illegal, invalid or unenforceable to any extent, the validity and enforceability of the remainder of the provision and this Agreement, or of such provisions as applied to any other circumstances, shall not be affected thereby, and shall remain in full force and effect as valid, binding and continuing.
35. Modifications. Additions, amendments, modifications or deletions to these terms shall not become part of the Agreement unless agreed to in writing by the parties; provided that SimpliSafe may add, amend, modify or delete the terms of this Agreement by providing prior written notice of such addition, amendment, modification or deletion on its website at www.simplisafe.com/terms-of-service and/or via a notice delivered pursuant to Section 40 (ii), which amended terms shall be binding upon the parties.
36. Right to Subcontract. Monitoring of the System is provided by a third party independent contractor. Likewise, any Third Party Responder is also an independent contractor. SimpliSafe may, in its sole discretion, subcontract for the provision of any of the Services under this Agreement. The provisions of this Agreement inure to the benefit of and are applicable to (i) any subcontractors engaged to provide any of the Services to you, including any monitoring facility and any Third Party Responder; and (ii) each of the SimpliSafe Parties (and any providers of Third-Party Products and Services, if any and solely as applicable), and bind you to all such persons or entities listed in the foregoing subsection (i) or (ii) with the same force and effect as they bind you to SimpliSafe. Any subcontractor we engage is an independent contractor and not our partner or joint venturer. You authorize us to act as your agent for purposes of working with, or providing any directions to, any subcontractors with respect to the provision of the Services. You authorize us to share your personal information with our subcontractors or Third Parties for the purpose of providing Services under this Agreement.
37. Section Headings; Interpretation. The section titles used herein are for convenience of the parties only and shall not be considered in construing the provisions of this Agreement. When used in this Agreement, (i) the word "including" shall mean "including, but not limited to;" and (ii) the term "sole discretion" shall mean "sole and absolute discretion without any liability."
38. Right to Notice and Cure. If SimpliSafe breaches this Agreement, you shall provide SimpliSafe written notice specifically identifying the nature of the breach and the provisions of this Agreement affected as a result of such breach. SimpliSafe may cure the breach within five (5) business days following SimpliSafe's receipt of the written notice or, if the breach cannot be reasonably cured within such period, may promptly commence to cure and diligently proceed until cured. If SimpliSafe cures any such breach, this Agreement shall continue unabated and SimpliSafe shall not be liable to you for any Losses arising out of or in connection with, due to or caused in whole or in part by any such breach.
39. Dispute Resolution and Arbitration. PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW IF YOU WISH TO OPT OUT OF THE REQUIREMENT OF ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. Certain portions of this Section 39 are deemed to be a “written agreement to arbitrate” pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. You and SimpliSafe agree that SimpliSafe intends that this Section 39 satisfies the “writing” requirement of the Federal Arbitration Act.
a. In the event of any dispute or disagreement between the parties (under tort law, contract law, including but not limited to auto renewal disputes, billing, or service disputes, etc), or claim or question by a party, arising from or relating to this Agreement or the breach hereof (collectively, a “Dispute”), the parties hereto shall use their best efforts to settle the Dispute. To this effect, the parties shall consult and negotiate with each other in good faith and, recognizing their mutual interests, attempt to reach a just and equitable solution satisfactory to both parties. If the parties do not reach such solution within a period of 60 days then, upon notice by either party to the other, such Dispute shall be finally settled by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with the provisions of its Consumer Arbitration Rules. Once the Dispute is submitted to the AAA for arbitration, each party must pay the appropriate filing fees. All expenses of the arbitrator and any AAA expenses shall be borne by SimpliSafe. The parties will remain individually responsible for their own attorney costs or other non-AAA required costs, including but not limited to the expenses of witnesses for either side, which shall be borne by the party producing such witnesses. If an in-person arbitration hearing is required, then it will be conducted at an American Arbitration Association office that is reasonably convenient for both parties. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, a determination on location shall be made by the Independent ADR Institution or the neutral arbitrator.
b. The arbitration will be heard and determined by a single neutral arbitrator selected by the AAA who is a retired judge or a lawyer with not less than 15 years of experience as a practicing member of the bar in the substantive practice area related to the Dispute, who will administer the proceedings in accordance with the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules. The arbitrator will apply applicable law and the provisions of this Agreement and will determine any Dispute according to the applicable law and facts based upon the record and no other basis. The arbitrator’s decision must consist of a written statement stating the disposition of each claim of the Dispute, and must provide a statement of the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and any award (if any) is based. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
You can obtain the AAA procedures, rules, and fee information as follows:
In arbitration, as with a court, the arbitrator must honor the terms of this Agreement and can award the prevailing party damages and other relief (including attorneys’ fees). However, WITH ARBITRATION (A) THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY, (B) THE ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS AND ARBITRATION OUTCOME ARE SUBJECT TO CERTAIN CONFIDENTIALITY RULES, AND (C) JUDICIAL REVIEW OF THE ARBITRATION OUTCOME IS LIMITED. The parties agree that the arbitration shall be confidential. All parties to the arbitration will have the right, at their own expense, to be represented by an attorney or other advocate of their choosing.
c. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IF YOU OR WE WANT TO ASSERT A DISPUTE AGAINST THE OTHER, THEN YOU OR WE MUST COMMENCE IT (BY DELIVERY OF WRITTEN NOTICE AS SET FORTH IN SECTION 40) WITHIN 1 YEAR AFTER THE DISPUTE ARISES -- OR IT WILL BE FOREVER BARRED.
d. NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT DOES NOT APPLY TO ANY CLAIM SEEKING DAMAGES IN TORT FOR BODILY INJURY, INCLUDING EMOTIONAL OR PSYCHOLOGICAL INJURY, OR PROPERTY DAMAGE OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING CLAIMS FOR LOSS OF USE OR DIMINUTION IN VALUE OF PROPERTY. IN ADDITION, THERE SHALL BE NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE ARBITRATED ON A CLASS ACTION BASIS OR ON ANY BASIS INVOLVING ANY DISPUTE BROUGHT IN A PURPORTED REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY ON BEHALF OF THE GENERAL PUBLIC, OTHER PERSONS OR ENTITIES DOING BUSINESS WITH SIMPLISAFE, OR OTHER PERSONS OR ENTITIES SIMILARLY SITUATED. FURTHERMORE, ANY DISPUTE BROUGHT BY OR AGAINST SIMPLISAFE MAY NOT BE JOINED OR CONSOLIDATED IN THE ARBITRATION WITH CLAIMS BROUGHT BY OR AGAINST ANY OTHER SIMPLISAFE SUBSCRIBER, UNLESS OTHERWISE AGREED BY THE PARTIES. FURTHER, THE PARTIES ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THEY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY OR AS A MEMBER OF ANY CLASS OF CLAIMANTS PERTAINING TO ANY DISPUTE SUBJECT TO ARBITRATION. SUBSCRIBER SHALL HAVE THE RIGHT TO OPT OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE BY PROVIDING WRITTEN NOTICE OF ITS INTENTION TO DO SO BY EMAILING TOS@SIMPLISAFE.COM WITHIN 60 DAYS OF THIS AGREEMENT BECOMING BINDING UPON SUBSCRIBER FOR THE FIRST TIME. OPTING OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE HAS NO EFFECT ON ANY PREVIOUS, OTHER, OR FUTURE ARBITRATION AGREEMENT(S) THAT SUBSCRIBER MAY HAVE WITH SIMPLISAFE. IF THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE BECOMES BINDING, SUBSCRIBER CAN NOT CHANGE, MODIFY OR REVOKE IT (INCLUDING BY ATTEMPTING TO OPT OUT IN CONNECTION WITH ANY CONFIRMATION OF THE THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, AS AMENDED FROM TIME TO TIME) WITHOUT AN AGREEMENT IN WRITING SIGNED BY SIMPLISAFE. IN THE EVENT THAT THE SUBSCRIBER OPTS OUT OF THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS SECTION 39: EACH PARTY HEREBY IRREVOCABLY AGREES THAT ANY SUIT, ACTION OR OTHER LEGAL PROCEEDING ("SUIT") ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH OR DUE TO ANY CLAIM OR DISPUTE THAT HAS ARISEN OR MAY ARISE BETWEEN THE PARTIES MUST BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY BY A STATE OR FEDERAL COURT LOCATED IN BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS; EACH PARTY CONSENTS TO THE EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION AND VENUE OF EACH SUCH COURT IN ANY SUCH SUIT AND WAIVES ANY OBJECTION THAT IT MAY HAVE TO JURISDICTION OR VENUE OF ANY SUCH SUIT; EACH PARTY CONSENTS TO SERVICE OF PROCESS IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE NOTICE PROVISIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT; AND EACH PARTY HEREBY WAIVES ANY RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY SUCH SUIT.
40. Notices. Unless otherwise expressly provided herein, (i) all notices required to be given to SimpliSafe shall be deemed to have been duly given if in writing and mailed by regular mail, postage prepaid, or overnight delivery, by a reputable, national overnight delivery service to SimpliSafe's then current principal place of business and (ii) all notices required to be given to Subscriber shall be deemed to have been duly given if in writing and sent to the e-mail address on file with SimpliSafe for your Account. Subscriber is responsible to provide SimpliSafe with any changes to Subscriber's e-mail address pursuant to the foregoing sentence.
41. Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is found to be invalid, the remaining provisions are still effective.

44. Limited Subscription Warranties (Product Protection Plans)
Existing customers who purchased a SimpliSafe System before January 17, 2022 (the “Subscription Product Protection Launch”) date will continue to have their original Limited Hardware Warranty of three (3) years from their purchase date. The term of the original Limited Hardware Warranty for other customers is one (1) year from the purchase date.
Interactive Lifetime Subscription Product Protection: Customers, who: (a) purchase a SimpliSafe System (which includes a base station) and (b) sign up for an Interactive Professional Monitoring subscription for 90 consecutive days before requesting support under this extended protection, qualify to have their original Limited Hardware Warranty on any Covered Products (as defined in the Terms of Sale) extended: (i) as long as they maintain their Interactive Subscription without any cancellation from the first time they activate this service, or (ii) except until a Covered Product’s manufacturer recommended product life expires (such as with life safety devices like smoke detectors and CO detectors which are each recommended to be replaced after 10 years from their manufacture date).
Other Subscription Product Protection: Customers, who: (a) purchase a SimpliSafe System (which includes a base station) and (b) sign up for any Service other than Interactive Professional Monitoring (monitoring service or Camera only plans) before the expiration of their original limited hardware warranty (explained in our Terms of Sale), qualify to have their original Limited Hardware Warranty extended on any Covered Products for up to two (2) additional years as long as they maintain the same service subscription throughout that 2 year extension period without any cancellation for a total possible term of up to three (3) years from the date of their original purchase of the Covered Product.
SimpliSafe reserves the right in its sole discretion to further extend this qualification date for existing customers and may do so from time to time to allow customers not benefiting from the extended product protection plans to join.
Subscription Product Protection limitations: These Limited Subscription Product Protection plans extend the original Limited Hardware Warranty protections provided by SimpliSafe to you, the initial purchaser of the System, with the same limitations as set forth in our Terms of Sale with the following additional Subscription Product Protection plan limitations.
These Subscription Product Protection plans are NON-TRANSFERABLE and only apply to the initial purchaser.
Subscription Product Protection plans expire once any Covered Item is discontinued (i.e. at SimpliSafe discretion or by obsolescence). If SimpliSafe, at its own discretion, supplies the subscriber with a replacement item under a Subscription Product Protection plan, that will be covered by a 1 year original Limited Hardware Warranty and any applicable Subscription Product Protection Plans thereafter as long as all other conditions are met.
Subscription Product Protection plans cover normal wear and tear, NOT unintended usage situations or when Covered Products are intentionally or otherwise damaged by improper use. SimpliSafe shall, at its own discretion, determine whether a product has been subjected to unintended or improper usage.
SimpliSafe reserves the right to offer any customer an opportunity to be grandfathered into one of these subscription product protection plans at any time subject to any conditions to be determined at SimpliSafe’s sole discretion.
SimpliSafe reserves the right to limit the number of redemptions for any given component or take other remedial actions if it finds that a customer is abusing a product protection plan.
SimpliSafe reserves the right to cancel any individual subscription for any reason, including suspicions of fraud or any other abuse of the product protection plan benefits. Product protection plans terminate once a subscription is terminated or otherwise interrupted.
SimpliSafe reserves the right to update and/or terminate these Subscription Product Protection plans at any point in time which, unless specified otherwise, would go into effect with the next billing cycle at the earliest. By signing up for any Service, you understand that these Subscription Product Protection plans are tied to your month to month service plan and are not part of your initial hardware purchase.
45. Critical Product, Component and Software Updates & Replacements During Services
If, at SimpliSafe’s sole and reasonable discretion, certain critical Product, component and/or Software updates or replacements are needed to maintain reliable performance of your system or any components thereof during your subscription for any Services, and SimpliSafe makes corresponding hardware or software updates available (collectively, “Critical Updates & Replacements), upon notice the Customer agrees to take reasonable steps and follow provided instructions to effectuate such Critical Updates & Replacements, and to cooperate as reasonably requested to help schedule, coordinate or arrange for such Critical Updates & Replacements to be installed, delivered or implemented. Such Critical Updates & Replacements can include updated labeling, replacements of batteries, replacement of wifi or cellular modules, and even replacements of discontinued components or products. By accepting service, you acknowledge you will make all reasonable efforts to support these necessary updates and that SimpliSafe has met its obligations to you by making these updates reasonably available.
46. Reconditioned components
As part of SimpliSafe’s sustainability, recycling, and reusability efforts, we reserve the option of using reclaimed, recycled or otherwise reconditioned parts as component parts in any new products sold or provided to consumers and any purchase made of any new products or request for replacement parts by the consumer is transacted with that understanding, agreement, and acknowledgment between the parties.
