9. Warnings Regarding Use
9.1 You acknowledge and represent that you have read the What is iZUP section of the www.getiZUP.com Web site and that you understand the function of iZUP as described therein.
9.2 You understand that the default miles-per-hour setting for iZUP is 5 MPH. You further understand that the Company makes no recommendations or representations concerning the appropriate speed setting to activate the block mode, and you assume the entire risk associated with such speed setting.
9.3 You understand that any use of a cellular device while operating a motor vehicle or other transportation vehicle may cause some level of distraction. You further understand that iZUP cannot eliminate the risk of driver distraction associated with the use of a cellular device, nor can it prevent usage in a stationary vehicle. You understand that use of a cellular device in these and other conditions may cause driver distraction which could result in an accident and serious injury or death.
9.4 You understand that iZUP permits a user to program a white list of telephone numbers that iZUP will not block even when the vehicle is traveling above the pre-set speed. You understand that the Company makes no recommendations or representations concerning the programming of a white list, and you assume the entire risk associated with any communications received by or sent to a white list number.
9.5 You understand that iZUP block mode is designed to activate when the cellular device is traveling above the pre-set speed, regardless of whether you are a driver or passenger in a motor vehicle or other transportation vehicle. Accordingly, you understand that there may be situations in which the block mode will prevent use of a cellular device even in situations in which you or the user of the device is not operating a vehicle.
9.6 You understand and agree that the Company shall have no liability for a failure to provide, or a delay in providing, the services described in these Terms due directly or indirectly to causes beyond the control of the Company or its subcontractors. If the Company is unable wholly or partially to provide such services because of any cause beyond its control, the Company may terminate your service without any liability to you, other than the refund of any amounts paid for the undelivered services.
9.7 You understand that iZUP cannot prevent cell phone use in all circumstances. For example, (a) iZUP will not prevent use in a stationery vehicle, (b) iZUP cannot prevent passenger use of a non-subscriber device, and (c) iZUP cannot prevent driver use of a non-subscriber device.
9.8 You understand there may be driving scenerios and environments that cause intermittent loss of coverage or inaccuracies. iZUP uses the phones Global Positioning System (GPS) to determine the speed the phone is traveling at and blocks the phone's services when the speed goes above a user set threshold. Because of iZUP's reliance on accurate and timely speed reading from the phones' GPS subsystem, the functionality and effectiveness of iZUP can be reduced for the following reasons that are a function of the phone's GPS subsystem:
For example, meteorological conditions, tunnels, underground parking or driving structures, terrain, high-rise buildings, faulty installation, motor function, mobile phone’s Global Positioning System inaccuracies or malfunction, and other electrical noises or signals from external sources may interfere with iZUP at times.
9.9 You understand that iZUP requires that the mobile phone’s Global Positioning System be activated to perform properly.
9.10 You understand that iZUP from time to time may requirement network service maintenance and thus iZUP may experience temporary performance limitations.
9.11 You understand that iZUP uses 911 for emergency calls and that when 911 is activated the iZUP application is suspended until re-activated by the account holder. You understand that the 911 emergency service functions only in the U.S. with domestic wireless carrier service plans. Travel outside of the U.S. with a domestic wireless service plan will not allow you to use emergency services in the country of destination. You understand traveling outside of the USA you should suspend your iZUP application in order to allow for in-country emergency service capabilities.
