You can get access to paid features with your account via payment means provided by Site (turning your account into a "Paid Account"). We'll automatically bill you from the date you convert to a Paid Account. Some items like digital keys can be obtained via one-time-payment. Billing transactions can occur on time of purchase or on each periodic renewal until cancellation. When you purchase a premium feature that is paid for by you through recurring payments, you agree that you are authorizing recurring payments, and that such payments and thereby subscription will be made by the method and at the recurring intervals you have agreed to, until the subscription is terminated by you or by BLE Locking. You may cancel a subscription at any time before the end of the current billing period and the cancellation will take effect on the next billing period. If you're on an annual plan, we'll send you a notice email reminding you that your plan is about to renew within a reasonable period of time prior to the renewal date. You're responsible for all applicable taxes, and we'll charge tax when required to do so. Some countries have mandatory local laws regarding your cancellation rights, and this paragraph doesn't override these laws.

 

Your Paid Account can be activated through BLE Locking resellers. In this case all pricing and billing related activities will be carried out through respective reseller. Resellers may also impose other service-related modifications.

 

BLE Locking may change the fees and/or benefits associated with premium features from time to time or may immediately suspend or terminate premium features for any or no reason and without advance notice or liability.

 

If you break any of BLE Locking’s terms in the use of your BLE Locking account and/or in the use of its premium features and subscriptions, in addition to other actions we may take, we may cancel any or all of your premium features and subscriptions immediately and no refund will be granted for any payments you have made.

 

BLE Locking uses the services of established 3rd party vendors for all payments and payment information. BLE Locking stores no payment information on its servers and is not liable for any breach of payment information or loss that occurs with the payment vendor.

 

No Refunds. You may cancel your Paid Account at any time. Refunds are only issued if required by law. For example, users living in the European Union have the right to cancel their Paid Account subscriptions within 14 days of signing up for, upgrading to or renewing a Paid Account. There will be no refund on digital keys that are already generated and made available for you in BLE Locking App. In the event of cancellation, the ownership of all related hardware that has been used in relation to the Service will remain the property of the said owner of the hardware.

We encourage you to use “strong” passwords (passwords that use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols) with your account. BLE Locking cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the above.

DIGITAL KEYS

The core of the BLE Locking Service is the generation, distribution and usage of digital keys with different security levels. Additional identification means is also possible, like PIN codes and RFID-card numbers. Our service is building required trust between control electronics and hardware like BLE Locking modules, the BLE Locking App and BLE Locking Cloud Service. The digital keys are distributed to user’s mobile phones and are stored only there. There is no copy of the digital key anywhere else. Same key cannot be generated again. In rare case of malfunction of the key, the user will receive new digital key he/she has paid for from BLE Locking without any additional cost. Digital keys are personal to the user and cannot be transferred or copied to be used by other users accounts in their mobile phones. Once user has received the key to their mobile phone, it can be used also without the presence of internet. Any use of the digital keys is saved in BLE Locking data warehouse and only the account owner of the BLE Locking module can see the log. Digital keys can be purchased from BLE Locking or any authorized reseller of the BLE Locking. In all cases the digital keys will be generated via BLE Locking App. The payment for the digital keys will occur via BLE Locking or via reseller.

BLE LOCKING MODULES

To use the digital keys with your door lock, garage door, car gate, lockers, etc., you need to buy the BLE Locking module or the lock or any other device which has BLE Locking compatibility. The modules and other related devices can be purchased via BLE Locking Site or from BLE Locking resellers. Any warranty related issues will be resolved by the party who sold the module or other related device based on rules and regulations of the region the reseller is operating.

FAKE ACCOUNTS

You may not register or create fake and misleading accounts.

MORE ON SPAM

You may not use BLE Locking’s services for the purpose of spamming anyone. Spam is generally defined on BLE Locking as bulk or aggressive activity that attempts to manipulate or disrupt BLE Locking Services or the experience of users on BLE Locking to drive traffic or attention to unrelated accounts, products, services, or initiatives. Some of the factors that we take into account when determining what conduct is considered to be spamming include:

  • if you have made large number of group or user contact requests, or followed and/or unfollowed a large number of user accounts or Pages, in a short time period;

  • if your posts or comments consist mainly of links and/or are shared without commentary;

  • if a large number of people have blocked you in response to high volumes of untargeted, unsolicited, or duplicative content or engagements from your account;

  • if a large number of spam complaints have been filed against you;

  • if you post duplicative or substantially similar content, replies, comments or create duplicate or substantially similar accounts;

  • if you post multiple updates to a topic with an intent to subvert or manipulate the topic to drive traffic or attention to unrelated accounts, products, services, or initiatives;

  • if you send large numbers of unsolicited posts, comments, replies or mentions;

  • if you add users to lists in a bulk or aggressive manner;

  • if you are randomly or aggressively engaging with Pages, Groups, or users to drive traffic or attention to unrelated accounts, products, services, or initiatives;

  • if you repeatedly post other people’s account information as your own;

  • if you post misleading, deceptive, or malicious links (e.g., affiliate links, links to malware/clickjacking pages, etc.); Accounts created to replace or mimic suspended accounts may be permanently suspended.

  • We may also remove accounts which BLE Locking at its discretion attributes to entities known to violate the BLE Locking Terms of Service.

OUR COMMITMENT TO DATA SECURITY

BLE Locking uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to BLE Locking and you do so at your own risk. Using unsecured Wi-Fi or other unprotected networks to submit messages through the BLE Locking Service is never recommended. Once we receive your transmission of information, BLE Locking makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. If BLE Locking learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. BLE Locking may post a notice on the BLE Locking Site or through the BLE Locking Service if a security breach occurs.

BLE LOCKING CONTENT DATA

When you use our Services, we process any data you explicitly enter into the site (your “Content Data”), including your full name, email address, profile information, posts, comments, photos, voice recordings, videos, files, emojis, etc. BLE Locking uses your Content Data for the sole purpose of serving and providing you with the full experience of BLE Locking. You control how we process your Content Data through Privacy & Sharing settings in your account at BLE Locking. At any time you can edit/update, retrieve or delete your Content Data in your account.

BLE LOCKING LOG DATA

When you use our Services, we may receive information (“Log Data”) such as your IP address, browser type, operating system, the referring web page, pages visited, location, your mobile carrier, device information (including device and application IDs), the usage information of the digital keys and status, usage and other log information of the Service related hardware. We receive Log Data when you interact with our Services, for example, when you use the digital keys, share access rights, visit our websites, sign into our Services, interact with our email notifications, use your account to authenticate to a third-party website or application. We may also receive Log Data when you click on, view or interact with links on our Services, including links to third-party applications, such as when you choose to install another application through BLE Locking. BLE Locking uses Log Data to provide, understand, and improve our Services. All requests and activities related to the usage and generation of digital keys in the solution are saved to data warehouse which is encrypted and can be accessed only by key generators and policy servers. Log analyser has read-only access to data, but the data is anonymized and coded via indexes of locks and users.

DELETING YOUR ACCOUNT - RIGHT TO ERASURE

At all times you have an easy way to opt out of our service and delete your account as well as ALL of your Content Data, if you do not wish to continue using our services. You can find this in your “Settings” where it says “Delete My Account.” When you delete any of your Content Data, or delete your entire account, we delete your Content Data and remove your account from our production servers as soon as is technically possible based on our infrastructure design including a 30-day delay to insure the deletion request was made by you, etc. The more data you delete, the longer will the deletion process take due to load balancing protections on our servers. After we’ve deleted your Content Data from our production servers, that same data may remain in our backups for a limited period of time (maximum of 7 months) due to protection regulations and our protocols for backup content protection. We secure your data that temporarily remains on our backups with additional security protocols. If we ever need to restore our backups into the main servers of BLE Locking (in a rare instance, for example recovering from a natural disaster), if any of your Content Data you have previously deleted from our main servers is still on our backups in that moment, it will be deleted prior to or right after the backups are moved to the main servers. If you own a group and delete your account, the content you posted to that group will be deleted; however, the group(s) you own will not be deleted unless you are the only member of that group.

TERM AND TERMINATION

WE MAY TERMINATE YOUR USE OR PARTICIPATION IN THE SITE OR DELETE YOUR ACCOUNT AND ANY CONTENT OR INFORMATION THAT YOU POSTED AT ANY TIME, WITHOUT WARNING, IN OUR SOLE DISCRETION.

GOVERNING LAW

DISPUTE RESOLUTION
Informal Negotiations

To expedite resolution and control the cost of any dispute, controversy, or claim related to these Terms of Use (each a "Dispute" and collectively, the “Disputes”) brought by either you or us (individually, a “Party” and collectively, the “Parties”), the Parties agree to first attempt to negotiate any Dispute (except those Disputes expressly provided below) informally for at least 60 days before initiating arbitration. Such informal negotiations commence upon written notice from one Party to the other Party.

Binding Arbitration

If the Parties are unable to resolve a Dispute through informal negotiations, the Dispute (except those Disputes expressly excluded below) will be finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. YOU UNDERSTAND THAT WITHOUT THIS PROVISION, YOU WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of The Arbitration Court of the Estonian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

Restrictions

The Parties agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Dispute between the Parties individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (a) no arbitration shall be joined with any other proceeding; (b) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (c) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons

Exceptions to Informal Negotiations and Arbitration

The Parties agree that the following Disputes are not subject to the above provisions concerning informal negotiations and binding arbitration: (a) any Disputes seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of the intellectual property rights of a Party; (b) any Dispute related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy, or unauthorized use; and (c) any claim for injunctive relief. If this provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, then neither Party will elect to arbitrate any Dispute falling within that portion of this provision found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Dispute shall be decided by a court of competent jurisdiction above, and the Parties agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.
