EYERUS Terms of Service

 

Introduction

These Terms of Service (“Terms”) create a legal agreement between you (“you” or “your”) and Greeneye Consortium (Pty) Ltd (herein referred to as “EYERUS”, “we”, “our” or “us”), who are committed to providing service of the highest standard to all who access the Services that are delivered, in the main, by means of the EYERUS app.

 

The Services may be provided in circumstances which may be dangerous and potentially life threatening. The Services are intended to assist you in limiting or reducing your risk of harm, through violent crime or other such threat, but cannot, on their own, be taken as a preventative measure. The Services are intended to support you to the extent reasonably possible when you are in or at risk of being in an emergency situation.

 

Further to the above, we accept no responsibility or liability for any malady, incident harm and/or loss that may occur or be suffered by you while using the Services.

 

By using and accessing the Services, you agree to be bound by these Terms and to access and use the Services in accordance with these terms, the EYERUS Privacy Policy and any additional terms and conditions that may apply to specific Services or Content, as may be indicated in relation to such specific Services or Content. Your access and use of the EYERUS app and the Services constitutes your agreement to be bound by these Terms.

 

You are responsible for your use of the Services, which you must access and use only in compliance with these Terms and all applicable South African and international laws, rules and regulations. You may use the Services only if you are legally entitled to conclude a binding contract with EYERUS and in this regard your agreement to these Terms constitutes confirmation that you are at least 18 years old. If you are younger than 18 years old, you are not legally entitled to conclude a binding contract with EYERUS and you will need the assistance of your parent or legal guardian, who must review and agree to these Terms on your behalf to enable you to access and use the Services.

 

No medical advice

Nothing in the Services purports to provide any medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. You are advised to seek the advice of a doctor or qualified healthcare provider in respect of your personal health and medical conditions. Immediately contact your nearest doctor or qualified healthcare provider should you suspect that you have a medical condition or problem.

 

EYERUS app

EYERUS is essentially a personal observer system implemented in a mobile app (the “EYERUS app”) by means of which a person (a “Participating User”) who wishes to be tracked or observed may invite one or more trusted observers (“Responder/s”) to track the movements of the Participating User for purposes of ensuring the safety of the Participating User. The EYERUS app includes an observer module for Respondents, a companion module, for companions of a Participating User and a service provider module by means of which safety, security and medical service providers (“Service Provider/s”) may participate in ensuring the safety and security of Participating Users.

 

Services

The Services (the “Services”) comprise, singly or in combination:

in-person services including:

functionality to alert Responders and Service Providers of an actual or impending emergency situation;

the capability to implement real time monitoring services by Responders of your choice;

the capability to summon emergency response Service Providers;

 

computer programs and computer software, including software-as-a-service programs and the computer programs incorporated in our websites and the messaging services and social media platforms used to deliver, describe and illustrate the Services (collectively the “Software”); and

 

information, text, graphics, photos, audiovisual material, data and any other materials and content (collectively “Content”) uploaded, downloaded or appearing on or in the EYERUS app, the Services, our websites, mobile apps and the messaging services and social media platforms used to deliver, describe and illustrate the Services.

EYERUS hereby grants you a personal, territorially unrestricted, non-exclusive, non-transferrable licence to use the Services, the Software and the Content for the duration of this Agreement, which licence you accept by using and accessing the Services.

Access

The Services are accessed and used by entry of the Services account login credentials, including your username and password. It is a condition of your access to and use of the Services that you shall take all steps necessary to protect the Services account login credentials and keep them secret and that you shall not:

 

disclose your login details to anyone else or allow anyone else to use your login credentials or account;

 

if you fail to keep your login credentials secret, or if you share your login credentials or Services account with someone else (whether intentionally or unintentionally), you accept full responsibility for any and all consequences arising, including any unauthorised purchases, and you agree to compensate EYERUS fully for any losses or harm that may result. We will not be responsible to you for any loss you might suffer as a result of an unauthorised person accessing your account and using the Services and we accept no responsibility for any losses or harm resulting from unauthorised use, whether fraudulently or otherwise.

 

With the exception of Services specifically marked as single device Services, you will be entitled to install, use and access the Services non-concurrently on multiple devices — the Services typically do not allow multiple concurrent access.

 

We reserve the right to create limits on use and storage of Services and Content at our sole discretion and at any time, without prior notice to you.

 

Service Providers

As part of the Services, EYERUS has contracted third-party Service Providers to provide their services to you, on an ad hoc basis.

 

EYERUS will use its best efforts to ensure that all Service Providers are Security Industry Authority (SIA) compliant and uphold the highest standards of care in the exercise of their functions, you hereby acknowledge that EYERUS itself does not provide any response services and relies upon its Service Provider network who are not employees or agents of EYERUS and operate as independent contractors to accept ad hoc emergency triggers through the Services from time to time. We accept no liability of whatsoever nature or howsoever arising from any act or omission of a Service Provider or anyone associated therewith and agree only to facilitate access to such Service Provider, nothing more or less.

 

By accepting the services of a Service Provider, you hereby absolve EYERUS from any and all liability pertaining to the services provided by the Service Provider and you hereby agree that your acceptance and the provision of services by a Service Provider will be governed entirely by the terms and conditions of the Service Provider’s terms and conditions of service.

 

Furthermore, we cannot and do not guarantee Service Provider response times, access to Service Providers and/or the availability of Service Providers at any given time and do not accept any liability or responsibility of whatsoever nature and howsoever arising for a Service Provider being unavailable to respond and/or failing to respond to a request for a Response by way of the Services.
