WatchMyGear Terms of Use

This Agreement governs your use of the WatchMyGear smartphone application (“Application”) and any of the services provided on or via www.watchmygear.com or the Application (“Services”). The Services and Application are provided by or on behalf of Abletech Limited of Wellington New Zealand, NZ Company Number 3008740 (also called “we”, “us” and “our”). These terms, together with the Privacy Policy, comprise a legally binding agreement between you and us (the “Agreement”). By confirming your acceptance or agreement to these terms (where this option is provided to you), or by otherwise using the Services or Application in any way, you acknowledge that you have read and understood the terms and conditions of this Agreement and agree to be bound by all of its provisions.

If you are entering into this Agreement on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you have the full legal authority to bind that company or entity to this Agreement, in which case references to "you" and "your" are references to that company or entity. If you are using the Services or Application for or on behalf of a company or other legal entity (and not entering into this Agreement on their behalf) then you are nevertheless individually bound by this Agreement, even if that company or other entity has a separate agreement with us.

If you do not agree to this Agreement, or do not have the authority mentioned above, you are not permitted to use the Services or the Application.

1.) This Agreement applies to the Account Owner and all Authorised Users

If you have created an account for the Services then you are an “Account Owner”. If you have been invited or authorised by or on behalf of an Account Owner to use the Services and/or Application under their account then you are an “Authorised User” and that Account Owner is “your Account Owner”. Similarly, if you are an Account Owner, the Authorised Users under your account are “your Authorised Users”.

Some of the provisions in this Agreement are stated to apply to the Account Owner or Authorised User only, and the rest of the provisions apply whether you are an Account Owner or Authorised User. To avoid any doubt, you can be both an Account Owner and an Authorised User for the purpose of this Agreement. However, if you are neither then you are not permitted to use the Services or Application.

Without limiting any agreement we have with an Authorised User, if you are an Account Owner, you are responsible for:

  • ensuring that your Authorised Users comply with any agreement they have with us;
  • all activity that occurs under your account; and
  • the acts and omissions of your Authorised Users (or any of your employees, contractors or personnel) in relation to the Services and Application as fully as if they were your own acts or omissions.

2.) Our commitment to you

Subject to the other provisions of this Agreement, when we provide the Services to you we will endeavour to:

  • maintain our systems with a view to enabling the Services to be available on average for at least 99% of each calendar month;
  • respond in a timely manner to any email requests for assistance in relation to the Services or Application;
  • schedule any planned maintenance between UTC 18:00 and UTC 20:00 on a Sunday (or such other period that we have given you prior notice of); and
  • provide at least one month’s notice before we make any material change to the Services that we consider is likely to cause significant problems in the use of the Services by all of our customers.

3.) It is your responsibility to drive safely

You must not interact with the Services or Application when driving or in any location that could be unsafe to you or others. You are responsible for ensuring that you drive in a careful and safe manner, observe all road safety and traffic laws and use your own personal judgement when driving. You should also make sure that you locate any device you use in relation to the Application in a safe place that does not interfere with your driving or any of the safety features of your vehicle (such as an airbag).

4.) Content

Any information, data (including map data) and other content made available to you via the Services or Application (“Content”) may be inaccurate, incomplete or outdated. The reasons for this include the passage of time, changing circumstances, asset movement and the nature and limitations of collecting geographic and location related data. Your use and interpretation of any Content is your responsibility (not ours) and is at your own risk. It is also your responsibility to make sure that you have obtained all the necessary rights and permissions to use any Content (for example, if you want to use Content uploaded by an Authorised User).

We do not endorse, approve or pre-screen Content and, to the fullest extent permitted by law, we provide no promises, warranties or guarantees in relation to Content, including as to its adequacy, accuracy or completeness or its freedom from anything harmful or inappropriate. You agree that we are not responsible or liable in any way for any Content or the consequences of you using or relying on any Content.

5.) Your right to use the Services and Application

So long as you comply with this Agreement, we grant you a non-exclusive and non-transferable licence to:

  • access and use the Services in the manner we make them available to you from time to time; and
  • install and use the Application on a device that is compatible with the Application.

If you are an Account Owner, the licence above is subject to this Agreement and is limited by the type of plan that you have with us. For example, that plan may only permit a certain number of Authorised Users to access and use the Services under your account.

If you are an Authorised User then the licence above is subject to this Agreement and is limited by the type of plan that your Account Owner has with us. Your Account Owner may also use settings within the Services to limit your use of the Application and Services (including to stop you from accessing the Services).

6.) Your Data

We do not own any of the information, data, files and other content that you upload to or provide to the Services (“Your Data”). You grant to us a worldwide, non-exclusive and sub-licensable right to store, use, modify, adapt, prepare derivative works from, reproduce, publish, display, distribute and communicate Your Data for the purpose of providing, operating, supporting and improving the Services and Application. You also acknowledge and agree that Your Data may be available to and used by, as applicable: (a) if you are an Authorised User, your Account Owner or any Authorised Users that have the same Account Owner as you; or (b) if you are an Account Owner, any of your Authorised Users. You represent and warrant to us that you have the right and authority to grant these rights in this clause and Your Data will not violate this Agreement.

You must make sure that Your Data is free of anything illegal or that may be offensive, any viruses and anything else that infringes a third party’s rights or could have a detrimental affect on the Services, Application or us (including our reputation). We reserve the right (but have no obligation to) remove or edit any of Your Data that we consider, in our sole discretion, is contrary to this Agreement. You also acknowledge and agree that we may disclose Your Data if we in good faith consider that such disclosure is required to comply with a legal process or requirement, enforce this Agreement or respond to any claims by a third party.

If this Agreement ends for any reason then we will, for at least 3 months from the end date, endeavour to provide a facility for you to download Your Data from the Services (in a format that we determine). You can also ask us to delete Your Data and we will do so within a reasonable period.

7.) Third Party Products

The Services or Application may use, incorporate or link to software, data, websites or other products or services that are licensed, sold, provided or otherwise made available by a third party (“Third Party Products”). You agree that your use of any Third Party Products is at your own risk and is governed by any separate terms (including privacy policies) that we have notified you of, as those terms may be updated from time to time (“Third Party Terms”). We assume no liability or responsibility whatsoever for any Third Party Products. Some Third Party Terms apply to open source software, and where those Third Party Terms are expressly stated to supersede this Agreement they will do so to the limited extent necessary, and then only in relation to the applicable open source software.

8.) Privacy Policy

The Privacy Policy applies in relation to the Services and Application.

10.) Changes to this Agreement

From time to time, we may make changes to this Agreement (including the Privacy Policy). Any such changes take effect on the date that the changes are posted on www.watchmygear.com. Without limiting the foregoing, we will endeavour to notify you of any changes to this Agreement by either emailing you with notice of the changed terms or by displaying a notice as part of the Services or Application. You may be required to read and accept any updated version of the Agreement to continue your use of the Services and Application.

11.) Changes to the Services and Application

We may, at our sole discretion, change the whole or any part of the Services or Application at any time without notice to you.

12.) Pricing, payment, and changes to the fees

This clause 12 applies if you are an Account Owner. You must pay all of the relevant subscription and other fees related to your account at the times and in the way specified by us on www.watchmygear.com. You must pay the fees for the Services and Application no matter who uses them. The fees are exclusive of all taxes and duties (including GST, if any), which are payable by you. The Services are billed monthly in advance starting on the date that you subscribe or upgrade to a paying plan. All payments are non-refundable, including if you close your account or downgrade your plan during a billing cycle. You will be billed the new rate for any upgrade or downgrade to your plan on your next billing cycle.

We reserve the right to increase the fees we charge for the Services and will endeavour to provide advance notice of such increases. If you don't agree to the new fees you can choose to end this Agreement by taking the steps set out in clause 15 (Ending the Services and this Agreement).

13.) Disclaimers and exclusions of warranties

The Services and Application are provided to you on an "as is" and "as available" basis and your use of them is at your sole risk. The nature of the Services and Application means we do not represent or warrant that they will be uninterrupted, secure, reliable, free of errors, defects or viruses or always accessible or available (including at a certain speed), that they will meet your requirements, that any Content is accurate, current, complete or reliable, or that all problems can or will be corrected. This is in part because of the reliance of the Services and Application on systems, services, data and networks that are not owned or controlled by us.

We give no warranties in relation to the Services or Application. All warranties, representations and conditions in relation to the Services and Application, whether express or implied, are excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law (including any warranties of fitness for purpose, merchantability, title and non-infringement).

You represent to us that your access and use of the Services and Application is for the purposes of a business and, to the maximum extent permitted by law, the provisions of the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 (and any other legislation intended to protect non-business consumers in any jurisdiction) do not apply to the Services or Application.

14.) Ownership and Suggestions

We or our licensors own all rights, title and interest, including all intellectual property rights (whether or not registered and anywhere in the world), in and to the Services and Application (including in any underlying software, ideas or know how) and any changes or improvements to them. Except to the extent that we specifically grant you a licence in clause 5 (Your right to use the Services and Application), we do not grant you any rights, title or interest in relation to any of the foregoing. You are also not granted any rights or interests in any of our trademarks, logos and business, product and domain names or those of our suppliers.

Except in relation to certain Third Party Products (and then only to the limited extent permitted by the applicable Third Party Terms), you acknowledge that you have no right to have access to the Application in source-code form.

You may choose to submit ideas, comments, feedback or suggestions to us in relation to the Services or Application (“Suggestions”). You acknowledge and agree that any Suggestions do not contain any confidential or proprietary information. You grant, and warrant that you have the right to grant, us a perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, transferable, sublicensable and non-exclusive right to use, share, commercialise and otherwise exploit Suggestions in any way for any purpose, at no charge and free of any obligation to you or anyone else.

15.) Ending the Services and this Agreement

You may immediately end this Agreement at any time for any reason by closing your account (if you are an Account Owner) or otherwise telling us in writing.

We may end this Agreement for any reason by giving you at least 5 days' notice beforehand. We may also end this Agreement at any time in any of the following circumstances:

  • if you are an Account Owner, you have breached this Agreement or any of your Authorised Users have breached their agreement with us;
  • if you are an Authorised User, you have breached this Agreement, your Account Owner has closed their account, we have ended our agreement with your Account Owner or we have otherwise ended, suspended or restricted your Account Owner’s access or use of the Services or Application; or
  • if you are an Account Owner or Authorised User, we (in our sole discretion) consider it necessary or reasonable to do so (for example, if required by law, to protect the Application or Services and the use of them by anyone else or where our ability or right to provide any part of the Application or Services has been stopped or restricted).

We will endeavour to notify you if we end the Agreement in the circumstances noted above.

Where we are entitled to end this Agreement we may choose to end, suspend or restrict your access and use of the Services or Application (or both of them), and we can do so without notifying you. To avoid any doubt, the exercise of those rights to end, suspend or restrict will never prevent us from exercising our rights to end the Agreement, and we can exercise the rights to suspend or restrict more than once for the same or different reasons.

When this Agreement ends for any reason:

  • all rights we have granted to you under this Agreement shall cease; and
  • you must immediately cease using the Services and Application, delete or remove the Application from all devices within your possession or control and, if requested by us in writing, certify to us that you have done so.

Ending this Agreement or any of the Services does not affect clauses that are intended to survive termination (including clauses 1, 4, 6, 8, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18, which will continue to operate) or any rights or remedies that have accrued beforehand.

16.) Liability and indemnity

To the fullest extent permitted by law, we, and our suppliers, contractors, directors, employees and agents (“Our Related Parties”), will not be liable to you or any third party for any: (a) breach of security or unauthorised access to Your Data; (b) loss or damage to Your Data (or any other information or data); (c) errors, mistakes or inaccuracies in any Content; (d) loss of profit, revenue, opportunity or saving; or (e) incidental, indirect, special or consequential loss or damage.

The total aggregate liability of us and Our Related Parties (together) to you under or in connection with this Agreement or its subject matter is limited to US$500.

The limitation of liability above, and any exclusions or disclaimers of liability in this Agreement, shall apply however liability arises, whether in contract, in tort (including negligence), for breach of statutory duty or otherwise.

You fully indemnify us from and against any and all claims, proceedings, damages, losses, liabilities, costs or expenses (including legal costs on a solicitor and own client basis) arising from or connected to your use of the Services or Application (and, if you are an Account Owner, any use of the Services or Application by your Authorised Users), Your Data or your breach of this Agreement.

17.) Disputes

If at any time you or we consider that a dispute or claim has arisen in connection with this Agreement or its formation (a “Dispute”), the disputing party may give written notice to the other party of the Dispute (“Dispute Notice”). All Disputes will be resolved in accordance with this clause 17 (Disputes), although nothing in this clause prevents either party from seeking or obtaining urgent interlocutory relief.

If the Dispute has not been resolved within 20 days of the Dispute Notice (or such further time as you and we may agree in writing) then either party may refer the Dispute to arbitration by written notice to the other (“Arbitration Notice”). The arbitration will be determined by a sole arbitrator as soon as possible in Wellington, New Zealand. If the parties cannot agree on an arbitrator within 10 days of the giving of the Arbitration Notice, the arbitrator will be the President for the time being, or his or her nominee, of the Arbitrators’ and Mediators’ Institute of New Zealand Inc. The arbitration will be conducted in accordance with the Arbitration Act 1996 (excluding clauses 4 and 5 of the Second Schedule to that Act). The award in the arbitration will be final and binding.

Without limiting any of our rights or remedies, you agree:

  • not to involve, or attempt to involve, us or any of Our Related Parties in any dispute, or in the resolution of disputes, that arise between you and, as applicable: (a) if you are an Authorised User, your Account Owner or any Authorised User that has the same Account Owner as you; or (b) if you are an Account Owner, any of your Authorised Users; and
  • to release, and procure the release of, us and Our Related Parties from any and all claims or demands arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.
