There is no cost for an individual User to use the Service to receive an Alert (as defined below) or to be included in another individual User’s network. The ability to create custom networks of Users and to send Alerts (“Subscription Services”) requires a paid subscription. If you elect to use Subscription Services, you agree to the pricing and payment terms, as we may update them from time to time. Wearsafe may add new Subscription Services for additional fees and charges, or amend fees and charges for existing Subscription Services, at any time in its sole discretion and we will communicate any price changes to you in advance and, if applicable, how to accept those changes. Price changes for Subscription Services will take effect at the start of the next subscription period following the date of the price change. As permitted by local law, you accept the new price by continuing to use the Subscription Services after the price change takes effect. If you do not agree with the price changes, you have the right to reject the change by unsubscribing from the Subscription Services prior to the price change going into effect. Please therefore make sure you read any such notification of price changes carefully.Paid Subscriptions can be purchased either by (1) paying a monthly subscription fee; or (2) pre-payment giving you access to the Subscription Service for a specific time period (i.e., 6 months) (a “Pre-Paid Period”). Individual Subscribers who pay a monthly fee are charged monthly, in advance for Subscription Services. Wearsafe is not responsible for any charges or expenses you incur resulting from charges billed by Wearsafe or a third party payment processor (i.e., iTunes or Google Play) in accordance with these Terms (e.g. overdrawn accounts, exceeding credit card limit, etc.). By providing a credit card number or other payment method, you authorize Wearsafe (or a third party payment processor) to continue charging the payment method for all charges due Wearsafe until the Account for the Subscription Service is settled and is terminated by either you or Wearsafe. Wearsafe reserves the right to limit the number of Accounts that may be charged to a credit card or other payment or identification method per unique user.
Individual Subscribers may cancel Subscription Services at any time; however, there are no refunds for any unused time on a subscription. Following any cancellation, however, you will continue to have access to the service through the end of your current billing period. At any time, and for any reason, we may provide a refund, discount, or other consideration to some or all of our Individual Subscribers ("credits"). The amount and form of such credits, and the decision to provide them, are at our sole and absolute discretion. The provision of credits in one instance does not entitle an Individual Subscriber to credits in the future for similar instances, nor does it obligate us to provide credits in the future, under any circumstance.
30 Day Return Policy for Purchased Wearsafe Tag Devices

READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES THE PARTIES TO ARBITRATE THEIR DISPUTES AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM WEARSAFE.
In the unlikely event that Wearsafe has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after 60 days, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any Wearsafe claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) arising out of or in connection with or relating to these Terms, or the breach or alleged breach thereof, including without limitation federal and state statutory claims, common law claims, and those based in contract, tort, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration in accordance with and subject to the International Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (AAA) by one arbitrator (except that you may assert claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify and so long as the matter remains in such court and advances only on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis). The arbitration will be conducted in Hartford, Connecticut, unless you and Wearsafe agree otherwise. Each party will be responsible for paying any filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with AAA rules. The award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses, and any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, you or Wearsafe may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on you and Wearsafe subject to the discretion of the arbitrator to require an in-person hearing, if the circumstances warrant. In cases where an in-person hearing is held, you and/or Wearsafe may attend by telephone, unless the arbitrator requires otherwise. Any settlement offer made by you or Wearsafe shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator.
The arbitrator(s) will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with applicable law, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator shall not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different Wearsafe Users, but is/are bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving the same Wearsafe User to the extent required by applicable law. The award of the arbitrator shall be final and binding, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
Nothing in this Section shall be deemed as preventing Wearsafe from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to protect any of Wearsafe’s proprietary interests.
Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief
ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THIS WAIVER APPLIES TO CLASS ARBITRATION, AND, UNLESS WE AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY'S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). ANY RELIEF AWARDED CANNOT AFFECT OTHER WEARSAFE USERS.

Unenforceable provisions will be modified to reflect the parties' intention and only to the extent necessary to make them enforceable, and the remaining provisions of the Agreement will remain in full effect.
Notices must be sent via first class, airmail, or overnight courier and are deemed given when received.

Notices to Wearsafe must be sent to Wearsafe Labs Inc. 1429 Park Street, Suite 205, Hartford, CT 06106, with a copy to the Legal Department.
A waiver of any default is not a waiver of any subsequent default.
You may not assign or transfer these Terms or any rights or obligations under these Terms without the written consent of Wearsafe. Wearsafe may not assign these Terms without providing notice to you, except Wearsafe may assign these Terms or any rights or obligations under these Terms to an affiliate or in connection with a merger, acquisition, corporate reorganization, or sale of all or substantially all of its assets without providing notice. Any other attempt to transfer or assign is void.
