Description of Services
We are the company behind the smart camera with “active eye intelligence” (the “Product”) that lets you see and hear what’s happening in your home when you are away. Our Product automatically captures pictures and videos throughout the day and uploads them to our servers in the cloud, where they can then be accessed via our mobile software applications (the “Apps”). Our Site, the Product and all related products, mobile applications and services are collectively referred to as the “Services.”
We may change, suspend or discontinue the Services at any time, including the availability of any feature or content. We may also impose limits on certain features and services or restrict your access to parts or all of the Site or Services without notice or liability.

Our camera communicates only with our servers and Apps and our servers communicate only with our cameras and Apps. We have also set up our system so that all camera and cloud software updates are installed automatically, which means you’ll always have the latest and most secure software on your camera. We encrypt pictures and video on the camera so that your pictures and video are secure even if you are on an open or insecure Wi-Fi network. Each camera has its own private key and certificate used to authenticate with the server. We use Amazon Web Services to store your pictures and video.

You may cancel any Pre-Order prior to the Pre-Order Ship Date and receive a refund, but after the Pre-Order Ship Date, the Pre-Order becomes non-refundable.

The arbitrator will have no authority to award any damages that are excluded by these Term of Service. Any award by the arbitrator may be enforced in any court having jurisdiction.

Our failure to enforce at any time a provision of these Terms of Service or our other rights herein will not be considered to be a present or future waiver of such provision or right and will not in any way affect our ability to enforce each and every such provision and right thereafter. If any provision of these Terms of Service is held invalid or unenforceable at law, such provision will be deemed stricken from these Terms of Service and the remaining provisions of these Terms of Service will continue in effect and be valid and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.
