Terms of Service
Westbrook Labs, Inc. Terms of Service
Agreement to Terms
These terms were last modified on December 1, 2016
You must not access the Services if You are a competitor of Ours, except with prior written consent. You must not access the Services for any benchmarking or competitive purposes.
The Service consists of the installation of a device (the “Device”) on the property (the “Property”) described in the invoice from Westbrook Labs for the Service (“Order”). The Device typically consists of the following elements: a micro-controller, a battery, an enclosure, a power source, a temperature sensor, other sensors, as well as any user-added components.
The Device actuates electronic devices, measures sensors and sends this data to Westbrook Labs by means of a cellular connection. This data is processed by Westbrook Labs’ software (the “Software”). The data is then provided to the user, either through the App or through pre-configured alerts.
You may not: (i) modify, disassemble, decompile or reverse engineer any part of the Service or Software or Device, except to the extent that such restriction is expressly prohibited by law; (ii) rent, lease, loan, resell, sublicense, distribute or otherwise transfer any part of the Service, Software or Device to any third party or use any part of the Service, Software or Device to provide time sharing or similar services for any third party; (iii) make any copies of the Service or Software; (iv) remove, circumvent, disable, damage or otherwise interfere with security-related features of the Service, Software or Device, features that prevent or restrict use or copying of any content accessible through the Service, Software or Device, or features that enforce limitations on use of the Service, Software or Device; or (v) delete the copyright and other proprietary rights notices on the Service, Software or Device.
You agree that Your purchases are not contingent on the delivery of any future functionality or features or dependent on any oral or written public comments made by Us regarding future functionality or features.
Changes to Terms
We may modify the Terms at any time, in our sole discretion. If we do so, we’ll let you know either by posting the modified Terms on the Services or through other communications. It’s important that you review the Terms whenever we modify them because if you continue to use the Services after we have posted modified Terms on the Services, you are indicating to us that you agree to be bound by the modified Terms. If you don’t agree to be bound by the modified Terms, then you may not use the Services anymore. Because our Services are evolving over time we may change or discontinue all or any part of the Services, at any time and without notice, at our sole discretion.
The payment and billing terms are set forth in the purchase agreement between you and Westbrook Labs.
Who May Use the Services
You may use the Services only if you are 13 years or older and are not barred from using the Services under applicable law, and you have completed a purchase agreement with complete and accurate billing and contact information or you have received a free trial offer from us. You represent and warrant that your use of the Services complies with all applicable laws.
Registration and Your Information
If you want to use the Services you’ll have to create an account (“Account”). You can do this via the Services or through your account with certain third-party communication tools such as Google Apps (each, a “Third Party Account”). If you choose the Third Party Account option we’ll create your Account by extracting from your Third Party Account certain personal information such as your name and email address and other personal information that your privacy settings on the Third Party Account permit us to access.
You agree that you won’t disclose your Account password to anyone and you’ll notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your Account. You’re responsible for all activities that occur under your Account, whether or not you know about them.
In order to make use of the Services you must have the Westbrook Labs Device. You may purchase the Device together with access to the Services, or Westbrook Labs may provide you with a promotional device and a free trial period for use of the Services.
If You send or transmit any communications, comments, questions, suggestions, or related materials to Westbrook Labs, whether by letter, e-mail, telephone, or otherwise (collectively, “Feedback”), suggesting or recommending changes to the Device, Software or the Services, including, without limitation, new features or functionality relating thereto, all such Feedback is, and will be treated as, non-confidential and non- proprietary. You hereby assign all right, title, and interest in, and Westbrook Labs is free to use, without any attribution or compensation to You, any ideas, know-how, concepts, techniques, or other intellectual property and proprietary rights contained in the Feedback, whether or not patentable, for any purpose whatsoever, including but not limited to, developing, manufacturing, having manufactured, licensing, marketing, and selling, directly or indirectly, products and services using such Feedback. You understand and agree that Westbrook Labs is not obligated to use, display, reproduce, or distribute any such ideas, know-how, concepts, or techniques contained in the Feedback, and You have no right to compel such use, display, reproduction, or distribution.
Content and Content Rights
For purposes of these Terms: (i) “Content” means text, graphics, images, software, audio, video, works of authorship of any kind, and information or other materials that are posted, generated, provided or otherwise made available through the Services, including data, analysis, and results created by Westbrook Labs as part of the Services that is based on your User Content; and (ii) “User Content” means any Content that Account holders (including you) provide to be made available through the Services. Content includes without limitation User Content. For the most part, your User Content will consist of sensor data transmitted from your Westbrook Labs Devices to the Services, but it may also include metadata about sensors and assets that you enter (such as names, tags, etc.)
Content Ownership, Responsibility and Removal
Westbrook Labs does not claim any ownership rights in any User Content and nothing in these Terms will be deemed to restrict any rights that you may have to use and exploit your User Content. Subject to the foregoing, Westbrook Labs and its licensors exclusively own all right, title and interest in and to the Services and Content, including all associated intellectual property rights. You acknowledge that the Services and Content are protected by copyright, trademark, and other laws of the United States and foreign countries. You agree not to remove, alter or obscure any copyright, trademark, service mark or other proprietary rights notices incorporated in or accompanying the Services or Content.
Rights in User Content Granted by You
We want to be very clear that your User Content, especially the sensor data provided by your Westbrook Labs’ Device to the Service, is yours. You have the right to use the data however you wish, including deleting it. However, you hereby acknowledge that Altrac has the right to use and disclose data derived from your use of Our Service: (i) as part of Altrac’s business operations, to use and disclose aggregate statistics obtained and/or derived in connection with your use of the Service in a manner that prevents individual identification of you or your information (we will not include your data in aggregate statistics where your data comprises more than 20% of the total data set); (ii) to operate, manage, test, maintain and enhance Altrac’s products, programs and/or services; (iii) when you have specifically authorized us to share the data with a third party (for example, a weather aggregation website).
You are solely responsible for all your User Content. You represent and warrant that you own all your User Content or you have all rights that are necessary to grant us the license rights in your User Content under these Terms. You also represent and warrant that neither your User Content, nor your use and provision of your User Content to be made available through the Services, nor any use of your User Content by Westbrook Labs on or through the Services will infringe, misappropriate or violate a third party’s intellectual property rights, or rights of publicity or privacy, or result in the violation of any applicable law or regulation.
You can remove your User Content at any time utilizing the delete function within the Services or by submitting a support ticket to Westbrook Labs Support, including upon termination of your use of the Services. However, some User Content may not be removed while you are signed up to use the Services, as the deletion of your User Data would interfere with our ability to perform the Services for you. Upon your request, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to remove your User Content, but we can’t guarantee that some of your User Content isn’t stored in a general backup or archive of our systems. We are not responsible or liable for the failure to remove or delete any of your User Content.
