BIOTRAKA TERMS OF SERVICE
Updated as of August 1, 2018
Biotraka Pty Ltd and its subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively, “Biotraka”) provides, or may provide: (1) a Biotraka user account website that may be accessed at www.Biotraka.com and its sub-domains (each, a “Site”), (2) services accessible through the Sites (“Web Apps”) , (3) software that may be downloaded to your smartphone or tablet to access services (“Mobile Apps”), (4) subscription services, including services that can be accessed using the Web Apps and Mobile Apps (“Subscription Services”), and/or (5) software embedded in the Devices (and any updates thereto) (“Embedded Software”), all for use in conjunction with Biotraka’s pet tracking and monitoring devices (“Devices”) and in other ways that Biotraka provides or may provide. The Devices and Services may be used together or in ways that may integrate with products and services from third parties. The term “Services” means the Sites, Web Apps, Mobile Apps, Subscription Services, and Embedded Software. The term “Products” means the Services and the Devices.
These Terms of Service (“Terms”) govern your access to and use of the Services and Devices. Please read these Terms carefully. They require the use of binding arbitration to resolve disputes rather than jury trials or class actions. The term “you,” as used in these Terms, means any person or entity who accesses or uses the Products and any person or entity who creates an Account (as defined below) and accepts these Terms. These Terms give you specific legal rights, and you may also have other legal rights in addition, which vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. The disclaimers, exclusions, and limitations of liability under these Terms will not apply to the extent prohibited by applicable law. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages or other rights, so those provisions of these Terms may not apply to you.
THIS IS A LEGAL AGREEMENT. BY ACKNOWLEDGING THESE TERMS, BY PURSHASING A PRODUCT FROM BIOTRAKA, AND/OR BY ACCESSING AND USING THE SERVICES (INCLUDING THE SITES), YOU ARE ACCEPTING AND AGREEING TO THESE TERMS. YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU HAVE THE RIGHT, AUTHORITY, AND CAPACITY TO ACCEPT AND AGREE TO THESE TERMS. YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU EITHER HAVE EXCLUSIVE CONTROL OR EXCLUSIVE POSSESSION OVER THE PROPERTY ON WHICH THE WEB APPS OR MOBILE APPS ARE BEING INSTALLED. YOU REPRESENT THAT YOU ARE OF SUFFICIENT LEGAL AGE IN YOUR JURISDICTION OR RESIDENCE TO USE OR ACCESS THE SERVICES AND TO ENTER INTO THESE TERMS. BIOTRAKA IS WILLING TO PROVIDE SERVICES TO YOU ONLY UPON CONDITION THAT YOU ACCEPT ALL OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CONTAINED IN THESE TERMS. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ANY OF THE PROVISIONS OF THESE TERMS, YOU SHOULD CEASE ACCESSING OR USING THE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES.
AS DESCRIBED BELOW, YOU ARE CONSENTING TO AUTOMATIC SOFTWARE UPDATES OF THE SERVICES AND OF THE DEVICES CONNECTED TO THE SERVICES. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE, YOU SHOULD NOT USE THE DEVICES OR THE SERVICES.
AS DESCRIBED BELOW, SECTIONS 4 AND 5 DESCRIBE IMPORTANT LIMITATIONS OF THE PRODUCTS. PLEASE READ THESE LIMITATIONS CAREFULLY, AS YOU ARE ACKNOWLEDGING THEM AND ACCEPTING THEM.
Biotraka reserves the right to make changes to these Terms. We’ll post notice of modifications to these Terms on this page. You should ensure that you have read and agree with our most recent Terms when you use the Products. Continued use of the Products following notice of such changes shall indicate your acknowledgment of such changes and agreement to be bound by the revised Terms. If you have any questions regarding these Terms, you can contact Biotraka by email at admin@Biotraka.com

You may use the Services only if you can form a binding contract with Biotraka, and only if you are in compliance with these Terms and all applicable local, state/provincial, national, and international laws, rules, and regulations. Only individuals age 18 and older are permitted to use the Products and register for Accounts. Any use or access to the Products by individuals under the age of 18 is strictly prohibited and is a violation of these Terms.

At any time, Biotraka may (i) suspend or terminate your rights to access or use the Products, or (ii) terminate these Terms with respect to you if Biotraka in good faith believes that you have used the Products in violation of these Terms, including any incorporated guidelines, and terms or rules.
(e) Effect of Termination. Upon termination of these Terms, your Account and your right to use the Products will automatically terminate.

You represent and warrant that: (a) all required registration information you submit is truthful and accurate; (b) you will maintain the accuracy of such information; and (c) your use of the Products will not violate any U.S. or other applicable law or regulation. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Account login information and for all activities that occur under your Account. You agree to use “strong” passwords (passwords that use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols) with your Account, and to maintain your password securely to prevent others from gaining access without your permission. You agree to immediately notify Biotraka of any unauthorized use, or suspected unauthorized use, of your Account or any other breach of security. Biotraka is not liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the above requirements.

Certain materials may be displayed or performed on or with the Products (including, but not limited to, text, graphics, articles, photographs, video, images, and illustrations (collectively, “Content”)). The Content also includes information that you and other users provide us in the course of using the Products (collectively, “User Submissions”), which we may use to provide, maintain and improve the Products. Some Content may be visible to others (for example, the Services may allow you to upload, post, or otherwise share photographic content). You may also be able to post feedback, comments, questions, or other information on the Sites. You are solely responsible for all Content that you upload, post, email, transmit, or otherwise disseminate using, or in connection with, the Products, or that you contribute in any manner to the Products; you represent and warrant that you have all rights necessary to do so, in the manner in which you contribute it; and you license to Biotraka all patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights in and to such Content for publication on the Service pursuant to these Terms.

Certain items of independent, third party code may be included in the Web Apps and/or Mobile Apps that are subject to the GNU General Public License (“GPL”) or other open source licenses (“Open Source Software”). The Open Source Software is licensed under the terms of the license that accompanies such Open Source Software. Nothing in these Terms limits your rights under, or grants you rights that supersede, the terms and conditions of any applicable end user license for such Open Source Software. In particular, nothing in these Terms restricts your right to copy, modify, and distribute such Open Source Software that is subject to the terms of the GPL.
(f) Modification. Biotraka reserves the right, at any time, to modify, suspend, or discontinue the Services or any part thereof with or without notice. You agree that Biotraka will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension, or discontinuance of the Services or any part thereof.
(g) Access Outside Certain Countries. Although the Sites are accessible worldwide, the Products provided or accessed through or on the Sites are not available to all persons or in all countries. If you choose to access the Sites, you do so on your own initiative and you are solely responsible for complying with applicable local laws in your country. You understand and accept that the Sites are not designed for use in every country and some or all of the features of the Sites may not work or be appropriate for use in every country. To the extent permissible by law, Biotraka accepts no responsibility or liability for any damage or loss caused by your accessing or use of the Sites, Devices or Services outside of Australia or the United States. You will be bound by these Terms wherever you access or use the Sites or use the Devices or Services.
- Agreed Usage and Limitations of Biotraka Services
(a) Intended Use of Products. You agree to test the Devices at the time they are delivered to you to ensure that they are in good working order. Thereafter, it is solely your responsibility to maintain the Devices and keep them in good working order. Biotraka is not responsible or liable for any misuse or improper use or storage of the Devices. While we aim for the Services to be highly reliable and available, they are not intended to be reliable or available 100% of the time. The Services are subject to sporadic interruptions and failures for a variety of reasons beyond Biotraka’s control, including GPS and/or Wi-Fi intermittency, service provider uptime, mobile notifications and carriers, among others. In particular, GPS technologies, although accurate enough for typical tracking purposes, can be affected by environmental factors such as signal strength and battery condition. Although we aim to make the GPS locator as accurate as possible, you should not rely on this information for critical uses, such as pin point locations for legal or life saving purposes. You acknowledge the foregoing limitations and agree that Biotraka is not responsible for any damages allegedly caused by the failure or delay of the Services.
(b) Use the Services At Your Own Risk. Our goal is to provide helpful and accurate information in connection with the Products, but we make no endorsement, representation, warranty, or covenant of any kind about any information, services, or recommendations made in connection with the Products (“Product Information”), or that your use of the Products will result in an increased level of fitness or better health for your pet. The Product Information is provided “as-is” and “as available.” You agree that it is your responsibility to educate yourself about how to interpret and respond to the Product Information. The accuracy of the data collected and presented through the Devices and Services is not intended to match that of medical devices or scientific measurement devices. You expressly acknowledge and agree that Biotraka is not responsible or liable for the accuracy, reliability, effectiveness, or correct use of Product Information. If you rely on any Product Information, you do so solely at your own risk.
(c) Consult Your Veterinarian. The Products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. If your pet has a medical condition, you should consult your veterinarian before using the Products, engaging your pet in an exercise program, or changing their diet. If your pet experiences a medical emergency, stop using the Products and Product Information, and consult with a veterinarian. You expressly acknowledge and agree that Biotraka is not responsible for any health problems that may result from training programs, consultations, products, or events you learn about as a result of your use of the Products. Any exercise programs or changes to your pet’s diet that you engage in as a result of your use of the Products is solely at your own risk.
(d) Responsibility for Content. All information publicly posted or privately transmitted through the Services is the sole responsibility of the person from which (or from whose account) such Content originated and Biotraka will not be liable for any errors or omissions in any Content. Biotraka cannot guarantee the identity of any other users with whom you may interact in the course of using the Services. Additionally, we cannot guarantee the authenticity of any data that users or merchants may provide about themselves. You acknowledge that all Content accessed by you using the Services is at your own risk and you will be solely responsible for any damage or loss to any party resulting therefrom. We cannot control and have no duty to take any action regarding how you may interpret and use the Content or what actions you may take as a result of having been exposed to the Content, and you hereby release us from all liability for you having acquired or not acquired Content through the Services.
(e) Temporary Suspension. The Services may be suspended temporarily without notice for security reasons, system failure, maintenance and repair, or other circumstances.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you have all required system elements and that they are compatible and properly configured. You acknowledge that the Services may not work as described when the requirements and compatibility have not been met. In addition, you acknowledge that Biotraka may activate communication protocols on your smartphone or tablet, with or without prior notification, in order to facilitate proper operation of the Services and Devices, enable communication with Services and Devices connected to the Biotraka Account, and enable certain features.
(g) Your Warranty Regarding Your Content and Use of Services. You warrant, represent and agree that you will not contribute any Content or otherwise use the Services in a manner that (i) infringes or violates the intellectual property rights or proprietary rights, rights of publicity or privacy, or other rights of any third party; (ii) violates any law, statute, ordinance or regulation; (iii) is harmful, fraudulent, deceptive, threatening, abusive, harassing, tortious, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libelous, or otherwise objectionable; (iv) impersonates any person or entity, including without limitation any employee or representative of Biotraka; (v) contains a virus, Trojan horse, worm, time bomb, or other harmful computer code, file, or program; (vi) jeopardizes the security of your Biotraka Account or anyone else’s Account (such as allowing someone else to log in to the Services as you); (vii) attempts, in any manner, to obtain the password, account, or other security information from any other user; (viii) violates the security of any computer network, or cracks any passwords or security encryption codes; (ix) runs Maillist, Listserv, or any form of auto-responder or “spam” on the Services, or any processes that otherwise interfere with the proper working of the Services (including by placing an unreasonable load on the Services’ infrastructure); (x) copies or stores any significant portion of the Content; or (xi) decompiles, reverse engineers, or otherwise attempts to obtain the source code or underlying ideas or information of or relating to the Services.

You acknowledge and agree that: (i) the use and availability of the Products may be dependent on third party product vendors and service providers, (ii) these third party products and services may not operate in a reliable manner 100% of the time, and they may impact the way that the Products operate, and (iii) Biotraka is not responsible for damages and losses due to the operation of these third party products and services.

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 these Terms, the more restrictive or conflicting terms and conditions in these Terms apply.
