ABOUT US AND THE SERVICE
The Service provided hereunder (the “Service”) enables you, through our App (the “App”) and in conjunction with devices separately purchased from us or through one of our authorized distributors (each a “Device”) to monitor your aquarium and to remotely control various parameters related to the aquarium, such as temperature, wave intensity, light intensity, etc. The Service is provided, owned and operated by [RED SEA INC] or one of its affiliates (“Red Sea”, “we” “us” and “our”).
You may use the Service only with our Devices. Use of the Service with any other third-party device violates the terms of this User Agreement. You shall be responsible for any damages caused by such use and we shall have no responsibility for any such use.
As our scope develops, the nature of the Service may change. We may, at any time and without prior notice change the layout, design, scope, features or availability of our App and the Service.
Upon purchase of your Devices, you were provided with a copy of our Installation and Operation Manual (the “Manual”). Please read the Manual carefully, as it provides guidelines to the Services provided hereunder. You agree to follow all instructions provided by the Manual.

Based on the Metrics and on other information collected by us, you may receive various notifications, suggestions or warnings with respect to your aquarium (collectively, the “Notifications”). We do not guarantee that any or all problems with respect to your aquarium will be picked up by our Notifications. As well, misdetections may occur. Furthermore, we have no obligation to provide Notifications and we therefore advise that you do not rely on receiving such Notifications, but that you monitor your aquarium manually to ensure that it is functioning correctly.
You acknowledge that notwithstanding our efforts to provide you with accurate Notifications, the Notifications provided may be based on false positives or false negatives, and that we do not guarantee the accuracy thereof. You should independently verify any and all Notifications.

- You are solely and exclusively responsible for all actions you take in response to the Metrics and Notifications.
- You are solely and exclusively responsible to carry out such actions as you deem appropriate as a result of the Metrics and Notifications.
We are not responsible or liable for your reliance upon, or use of, the Metrics or the Notifications, your actions in connection therewith, or any consequences resulting from them.
THOUGH WE MAKE EFFORTS TO HAVE THE METRICS and the notifications BE COMPLETE AND ACCURATE, We do not guarantee and make no representation about the accuracy, adequacy, completeness, credibility, authenticity, validity, or integrity of the METRICS or the notification.
As specified in the Manual, your Devices may be connected in three different modes, “Online Mode”, “Offline Mode” and “Direct Mode”. You acknowledge that in each of the Offline Mode and the Direct Mode, all or certain parts of the Service may not be available. You are responsible to ensure that your Devices are in the correct mode at all times. You specifically acknowledge that without connectivity to your Devices, all or many parts of the Service may not function, including the provision of Notifications, and your ability to control various parameters of your aquarium and Devices. It is your responsibility to ensure connectivity at all times. We are not responsible for any failure of connectivity.
You also acknowledge that your Device may be installed with a back-up battery for use in the event that your power supply fails. We are not responsible for the functioning of such battery, and you are required, at all times, to ensure that the battery functions as required.
IN NO EVENT WILL WE BE LIABLE FOR ANY ADVERSE EVENTUALITIES, INCIDENTS OR INJURIES TO YOUR AQUARIUM THE FLORA AND FAUNA THEREIN, OR OTHERWISE, RESULTING FROM LACK OF CONNECTIVITY, FAILURE OF BATTERY, LACK OF POWER SUPPLY OR FAILURE TO USE THE CORRECT OR NECESSARY CONNECTIVITY MODE.

Your use of the Service may be subject to additional third party terms and conditions that govern that application marketplace from which you downloaded the App, such as iTunes, Google Play or Amazon App-store for Android. Such third parties are not responsible for providing maintenance and support services with respect to the App.
The following terms apply if you downloaded an App from Apple’s App Store. You and us agree and acknowledge as follows:
These Terms are concluded between yourself and us, and not with Apple Inc. (“Apple”). Apple is not responsible for the App. In the event of a conflict between these Terms and the App Store Terms of Service then the App Store Terms of Service will prevail, solely with respect to the conflicting provisions.
The license granted to you for the App is limited to a non-transferrable license to use the App on any iOS Products that you own or control, and as permitted by the Usage Rules set forth in the App Store Terms of Service, except that such App may be accessed, acquired, and used by other accounts associated with the purchaser via Family Sharing.
In the event of a failure to conform to any applicable warranty (if any warranty is applicable), you may notify Apple, and Apple will refund the purchase price for the App to you (if you paid any). Apple has no other warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the App, and any other claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs or expenses attributable to any failure to conform to any warranty, will not be at Apple’s responsibility.
Apple is not responsible for addressing any claims by you or any third party relating to the App or your possession and/or use of the App, including (i) product liability claims, (ii) any claim that the App fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement, and (iii) claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation.
In the event of any third party claim that the App or your possession and use of the App infringes that third party’s IP Rights, Apple will not be responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement and discharge of any such infringement claim.
You must comply with applicable third party terms of agreement when using the App (e.g. you must not be in violation of your wireless data Services agreement when you use the App).
Apple and Apple’s subsidiaries are third party beneficiaries of these Terms. Upon Your acceptance of these Terms, Apple will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce these Terms against you as a third party beneficiary thereof. You represent and warrant that (i) you are not located in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a “terrorist supporting” country; and (ii) you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties.
Governing Law, jurisdiction
Regardless of your place of residence or where you access or use the Service from, these Terms and your use of the Service will be governed by and construed solely in accordance with the laws of New York, NY, excluding any otherwise applicable rules of conflict of laws.
Regardless of your place of residence or where you access or use the Services from, or where you have purchased the Devices, this User Agreement and your use of the Devices and the Services will be governed by and construed solely in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, NY excluding any otherwise applicable rules of conflict of laws, which would result in the application of the laws of a jurisdiction other than the State of New York.
Any and all disputes, claims or controversies between you and us regarding this User Agreement or the use of the Devices or Services, which are not amicably resolved, shall be settled through binding arbitration (rather than in court) administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA), under its Commercial Arbitration Rules (which are available at www.adr.org). Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this User Agreement.
In arbitration, rulings of law and findings of fact are made by a privately appointed arbitrator, not a public judge or jury. The arbitrator is bound by the same substantive law as a judge, and may award damages and other relief in the same manner as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), but the arbitrator is not bound by the rules of procedure applied by courts. Also unlike litigation (in which there is a right to appeal), in arbitration, the parties’ ability to challenge the final award in court is very limited.
Payment of filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s Commercial Arbitration Rules. These fees will be shared equally by you and us, unless the arbitrator: (i) determines that the claims are frivolous, in which case the claimant shall bear all such fees arising from the frivolous claim; or (ii) determines that the fees should be allocated differently.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this section, either party may file: (a) an impleader claims against the other party in any court of competent jurisdiction; (b) in any court of competent jurisdiction a claim concerning the infringement (or alleged infringement) of intellectual property rights. We shall be entitled to seek temporary or other injunctive or equitable relief in any court with competent jurisdiction, and we may file a claim for monies due in any court with competent jurisdiction.
WE AND YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO ASSERT ANY CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER AS A REPRESENTATIVE OR MEMBER IN ANY CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION, EXCEPT WHERE SUCH WAIVER IS PROHIBITED BY LAW OR DEEMED BY A COURT OF LAW TO BE AGAINST PUBLIC POLICY. TO THE EXTENT EITHER OF US IS PERMITTED BY COURT OF LAW TO PROCEED WITH A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION AGAINST THE OTHER, WE BOTH AGREE THAT (i) THE PREVAILING PARTY SHALL NOT BE ENTITLED TO RECOVER ATTORNEYS’ FEES OR COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH PURSUING THE CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION (NOT WITHSTANDING ANY OTHER PROVISION IN THIS USER AGREEMENT), AND (ii) THE PARTY WHO INITIATES OR PARTICIPATES AS A MEMBER OF THE CLASS WILL NOT SUBMIT A CLAIM OR OTHERWISE PARTICIPATE IN ANY RECOVERY SECURED THROUGH THE CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION.
Assignment. You may not assign or transfer your rights and obligations under these Terms without our prior written consent. Any attempted or actual assignment by you, without our prior written consent, shall be null and void. We may assign and transfer our rights and obligations under these Terms, provided that notice is provided to you thereafter.
Severability. If any provision of these Terms is held to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable by a competent court, then the provision shall be performed and enforced to the maximum extent permitted by law to reflect as closely as possible, the original intention of that provision, and the remaining provisions of these Terms shall continue to remain in full force and effect.
Interpretation. The section headings in these Terms are included for convenience only and shall take no part in the interpretation or construing of these Terms. Whenever used in these Terms, the term “Including”, whether capitalized or not, means without limitation to the preceding phrase. All examples and e.g. notations are illustrative, not exhaustive.
Entire agreement. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us concerning the subject matter herein, and supersede all prior and contemporaneous negotiations and oral representations, agreements and statements.
Waivers. No waiver, concession, extension, representation, alteration, addition or derogation from these Terms by us, or pursuant to these Terms, will be effective unless consented to explicitly and executed in writing by our authorized representative. Failure on our part to demand performance of any provision in these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of any of our rights under these Terms.
Relationship. These Terms do not create any agency, partnership, employment or fiduciary relationship between you and us.
At any time, you may contact us with any question, request, comment or complaint that you may have with respect to the Service or these Terms, at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Effective Date: March 20, 2019.
