If you are not at least 13 years old, you may not use the Services at any time or in any manner or submit any information to BuddyGuard or the Services.
You may only access and use the Services if you are (a) able to enter into a binding contract with BuddyGuard, and (b) in compliance with these Terms and all applicable local, state, national, regional and international laws, regulations and rules.
Services License & Restrictions
BuddyGuard provides content through the Services that is copyrighted and/or trademarked work of BuddyGuard or BuddyGuard’s third-party licensors (collectively, the “Materials”). Materials may include logos, graphics, video, images, text, software, and other content.
Subject to these Terms, BuddyGuard grants you a limited, personal, non-exclusive, and non-transferable license to use and to display the Materials and to access and use the Services solely for your personal use.
You shall not directly or indirectly do any of the following:
(1) modify, disassemble, decompile, or reverse engineer any of the hardware or software that constitutes the Services; (2) rent, lease, loan, resell, sublicense, distribute, or otherwise transfer the Services to any third-party or use the Services on a time sharing basis or to provide any security or other services for any third party; (3) make any copies of the software used to provide the Services; (4) remove, circumvent, disable, damage, or otherwise interfere with security-related features of the Services; (5) delete the copyright and other proprietary rights notices on the Services; (6) attempt to access, monitor, or use Products of other customers; (7) use the Services in connection with accessing or monitoring any non-BuddyGuard device; (8) access the Services in order to build a similar or competitive product; (9) upload, transmit, or distribute any computer viruses, worms, or software intended to damage or alter a computer or communication network, computer, handheld mobile device, data, the Services, the Product, or any other property; (10) interfere with, disrupt, or attempt to gain unauthorized access to the servers or networks connected to the Services; or (11) violate any applicable law or regulation.
Registration and User Accounts
In order to create an Account, you must submit your information through the registration page as prompted on the Mobile Application or our Sites, including your name, email address, phone number, zip code/post code, and address. You may provide additional optional information during setup which is not required to register for an account but may be necessary to provide you with full Services or might be helpful to BuddyGuard in providing you with a more customized experience.
As part of the registration process, you will create a password that will allow you to log in to the Services. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and for all activities that occur on your account. You agree not to share your password, let others access or use your password, or do anything else that might jeopardize the security of your password.
All the information that you provide when registering for an account and otherwise through the Site must be accurate, complete, and up to date. You may change, correct, or remove any information from your account by either logging in to your account directly and making the desired changes or contacting BuddyGuard’s support team.
Location Admins & Security Circle Members
The individual who first creates an account and sets up the Product is the Admin of the BuddyGuard Product associated with that account and the primary account holder (“Location Admin”). Individuals who are authorized to access a Location Admin’s Products and Services are authorized users (“Security Circle Members”) under the Location Admin’s account and are invited through the Mobile Application. Security Circle Members may have the ability to use the Services and monitor and control the Products (for example, a Location Member can arm or disarm the Product or sound the alarm). Security Circle Members may also have the ability to view information (including personal information) and content across all of Location Admin’s Products (for example, a Location Member will receive notifications of Events or can view a Live Steam). Security Circle Members are responsible for their own actions in connection with the Products and Services, but the Location Admin also agrees to be fully responsible for all actions taken by a Location Member relating to the Products and Services.
If you are a Location Admin, you should authorize only those individuals that you trust to access your Product and the Services.
You are responsible for having all required software, hardware, and other system elements and making sure that they are compatible and properly configured. You acknowledge that (a) BuddyGuard cannot provide the Services properly if requirements and compatibility are not met, and (b) you will not receive notifications from your BuddyGuard device when the Product’s internet connection or power is lost, not operating properly, cut, or interfered with, or the Product is damaged or destroyed.

BuddyGuard cares about the integrity and security of its users’ personal data. BuddyGuard uses industry best practices when it comes to security.
