No Unlawful or Prohibited Use

As a condition of your use of the Services, you agree not to use the Services for any purpose that is unlawful or prohibited by this Agreement. You may not use the Services in any manner that could damage, disable, overburden, or impair any Service (or the network(s) connected to any Boma service) or interfere with any other party's use of any Services (any such use an "Inappropriate Use").

Boma will automatically monitor usage of our Services and in the event of an Inappropriate Use, Boma has the right to report the activity, and provide all relevant information (including your identity) to the appropriate authorities. You hereby consent to the forwarding of such information to the appropriate law enforcement authority.

You also hereby acknowledge Boma's right to provide information: in response to law enforcement requests, subpoenas, or court orders, OR to protect Boma's rights and property, OR in the case where failure to disclose information may result in imminent harm to you or to others.

Permission to Inform Law Enforcement

As a condition of your use of the Services, you hereby grant Boma permission to provide any and all information associated with the use of these Services to law enforcement personnel.

Use of Service by Customers Outside the United States

We currently support use of the Services inside the continental United States of America excluding Alaska (the "48 Continental States"); we do not presently offer support for use of the Services in any location beyond the 48 Continental States. Attempted use of the Services beyond the boundaries of the 48 Continental States is at your own risk and Boma reserves the right to terminate your Service immediately if we determine, in our sole and absolute discretion, that you have used the Service beyond the boundaries of the 48 Continental States in a way or manner that could potentially adversely affect Boma.

Payment Terms

You agree to pre-pay for the Services in full. You agree that the credit card information you provide corresponds to an account that you are authorized to use. You agree that Boma is permitted to charge your credit card account in order to collect payment for the Services. The credit card that you provide for the Services will be automatically and immediately billed. All currency references are in U.S. dollars. You are responsible for all charges that are incurred on your account.

Application of Terms

The Term of this Agreement shall be any period during which you are using or are entitled to use Services unless this Agreement is terminated earlier pursuant to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. All provisions of this Agreement, which, by their nature, impose continuing obligations, shall survive termination of this Agreement.

Cancellations may take up to 3 business days to become effective. Subscribers are responsible for any usage that occurs between the date of the request for cancellation and the date it is effective on the Boma systems. Boma may continue to charge the Subscriber's credit card for usage during this term and Subscriber agrees to pay.

Emergencies and Limits of Service

The Services should not be relied upon or even used in emergency situations, including, but not limited to, fires, medical emergencies, criminal emergencies, or natural disasters.

Instead, 9-1-1 should be called in any emergency situation.

Automated Structure of Service

Subscriber understands and acknowledges that Services are based on an automated telephone/computer relay system and no human intervention is involved with handling the Service.

Communication Delays

Our Services may be subject to limitations, delays, and other problems inherent in the use of existing telephone and cellular phone infrastructure, Internet, and other electronic communications. You agree that Boma is not responsible for any delays, delivery failures, or other damage resulting from such problems. The Services are programmed to react immediately, but some delays and failures of delivery can and will occur due to normal telephony and Internet traffic constraints. The Services will not function if the subscriber is not in a cell phone coverage area and is using a cell phone.

Service Level

Subscriber understands that Boma Services are dependent upon other technologies and as such, are subject to interruptions, down time and failures. The Services are provided on an "as is" basis, and Subscriber's use of the Services is at Subscriber's sole risk.

BOMA DOES NOT MAKE, AND HEREBY DISCLAIMS, ANY AND ALL OTHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, QUALITY, PERFORMANCE, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR USE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, TITLE, AND ANY WARRANTIES ARISING FROM A COURSE OF DEALING, USAGE, OR TRADE PRACTICE. FURTHER, BOMA DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, ERROR-FREE, OR COMPLETELY SECURE.

Disclaimer of Third Party Actions

Boma does not and cannot control the flow of data to or from the Boma Network or within any portion of the Internet. Such flow depends in large part on the performance of the Internet services provided by or controlled by third parties. At times, actions or omissions of such third parties can impair or disrupt Subscriber's connection to the Internet (or portions thereof). Although Boma will use commercially reasonable efforts to take actions it deems appropriate to remedy and avoid such events, Boma cannot guarantee that such events will not occur. Accordingly, Boma disclaims any and all liability resulting from, or related to, such events.

Response of Contacts

Boma disclaims all responsibility for the conduct of Contacts. Contacts are individuals whose information the Subscriber has added to Subscriber's account so that these individuals may receive Boma broadcast messages and/or Boma instant conference calls from the Subscriber. Boma insists and urges that Subscriber and their Contacts act in accordance with all applicable laws at all times.

Subscriber agrees to inform their designated contact persons that they are being designated as "Contacts" and explain the Boma Services, such that Contacts will have advanced notice that they may be contacted by Boma Services at request of Subscriber.

Disclaimer of Liability for Damages

IN NO EVENT WILL BOMA, ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AFFILIATES OR AGENTS OR ANY OTHER SERVICE PROVIDER WHO FURNISHES SERVICES TO YOU IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICE BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, OR FOR ANY OTHER DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO PERSONAL INJURY, WRONGFUL DEATH, PROPERTY DAMAGE, LOSS OF DATA, LOSS OF REVENUE OR PROFITS, OR DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SERVICE, OR TO OBTAIN EMERGENCY HELP. THE LIMITATIONS SET FORTH HEREIN APPLY TO CLAIMS FOUNDED IN BREACH OF CONTRACT, BREACH OF WARRANTY, PRODUCT LIABILITY, TORT AND ANY AND ALL OTHER THEORIES OF LIABILITY AND APPLY WHETHER OR NOT WE WERE INFORMED OF THE LIKELIHOOD OF ANY PARTICULAR TYPE OF DAMAGES.

Consequential Damages Waiver

IN NO EVENT WILL BOMA BE LIABLE OR RESPONSIBLE TO SUBSCRIBER FOR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, INDIRECT, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO PERSONAL INJURY, DAMAGE TO PROPERTY, OR LOSS OF SERVICE.

Indemnity and Release

By using the Services or Information provided to you on our website or in communications from us, you agree to indemnify Boma and its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, directors, officers, agents, and employees and hold them harmless from any and all claims, costs, liabilities, losses, and expenses, (including, but not limited to attorneys' fees and costs) arising from: (a) your use or misuse of the Services or information provided by Boma, (b) any person's use or misuse of any account or password you maintain with Boma, regardless of whether such use is authorized by you; (c) any action of or harm caused to or by your contacts; (d) any alleged violation of this Agreement, and (e) any alleged violation by you of the rights of others or any law or regulation, including, but not limited to, copyright law. By using the Services or the Information you are hereby agreeing to release Boma and its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, directors, officers, agents, and employees from any and all claims, demands, debts, obligations, damages (actual or consequential), costs, and expenses of any kind or nature whatsoever, whether known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, disclosed or undisclosed, that you may have against them arising out of or in any way related to the Services or the Information.

To the maximum extent allowable by law, YOU HEREBY AGREE TO WAIVE ALL LAWS THAT MAY LIMIT THE EFFICACY OF SUCH RELEASES. FOR EXAMPLE, YOU SPECIFICALLY AGREE TO WAIVE THE PROVISIONS OF CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE SECTION 1542, WHICH PROVIDES;
"A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IS KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR."

No Warranties on Services

WE MAKE NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS OF THE SERVICE FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT OR ANY WARRANTY ARISING BY USAGE OF TRADE, COURSE OF DEALING OR COURSE OF PERFORMANCE OR ANY WARRANTY THAT THE SERVICE WILL MEET CUSTOMER'S REQUIREMENTS. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, WE DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICE WILL BE WITHOUT FAILURE, DELAY, INTERRUPTION, ERROR, DEGRADATION OF VOICE QUALITY OR LOSS OF CONTENT, DATA OR INFORMATION. NEITHER BOMA NOR ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AFFILIATES OR AGENTS, OR ANY OTHER SERVICE PROVIDER OR VENDOR WHO FURNISHES SERVICES OR PRODUCTS TO CUSTOMER IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICE, WILL BE LIABLE FOR UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OUR OR YOUR TRANSMISSION FACILITIES OR PREMISES EQUIPMENT OR FOR UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO, OR ALTERATION, THEFT OR DESTRUCTION OF, CUSTOMER'S DATA FILES, PROGRAMS, PROCEDURES OR INFORMATION THROUGH ACCIDENT, FRAUDULENT MEANS OR ANY OTHER METHOD, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH DAMAGE OCCURS AS A RESULT OF BOMA'S OR ITS SERVICE PROVIDERS' OR VENDORS' NEGLIGENCE. STATEMENTS AND DESCRIPTIONS CONCERNING THE SERVICES, IF ANY, BY BOMA OR BOMA'S AGENTS OR INSTALLERS ARE INFORMATIONAL AND ARE NOT GIVEN AS A WARRANTY OF ANY KIND.

No Third Party Beneficiaries

No provision of this Agreement provides any person or entity not a party to this Agreement with any remedy, claim, liability, reimbursement, or cause of action or creates any other third party beneficiary rights.

Subscriber understands and acknowledges that any individuals that they allow to use the Services will not have any rights or causes of actions against Boma, and that Subscriber remains liable for that third party's actions.

Telephone Access and Possible Charges

The Services can be activated through phones. Local, long-distance, roaming, and air time charges may apply, depending upon the Subscriber's phone plan and are the sole responsibility of the Subscriber. However, Boma does not make any assurances about the availability or functionality of the Services. You are responsible for any charges incurred as a result of the Services and acknowledge and agree that you shall be solely responsible for all disputes with any service providers related to the same.

Privacy

We understand that privacy is a major concern for many consumers who do business or conduct transactions online. We will never sell, rent, or otherwise provide your personally identifiable information to any third parties for marketing purposes. We will only share your personally identifiable with third parties to carry out your instructions and to provide specific services. It is possible that we may at times be required by law enforcement agencies to disclose personal information when required by law. We will disclose such information if we have a good-faith belief that the disclosure is necessary to comply with a court order, ongoing judicial proceeding, or other legal process served on our company, or to exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims, if we believe that such action is appropriate and necessary to protect and defend the rights of Boma, or to protect the life, safety, property or rights of Boma users, contacts, and the general public.
For more information, you may view our current privacy policy at any time by simply visiting our web site and clicking on the Privacy Notice link.

Legal Requests

Boma cooperates with law enforcement inquiries, as well as other third parties to enforce laws. We can, and you authorize us to, disclose any information about you to law enforcement and other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate, in connection with an investigation of illegality, or other inquiry which may expose the Subscriber or Boma to legal liability. Subscriber also authorizes any and all information made available to Boma by Subscriber to be forwarded to a law enforcement agency, upon request. This information includes, but is not limited to, logs and historical files.

Limitation of Liability

In no event shall Boma's aggregate liability exceed the amounts actually paid by and/or due from Subscriber in the twelve (12) month period immediately preceding the event giving rise to a claim. In no event shall Boma and/or its licensors be liable to anyone for any indirect, punitive, special, exemplary, incidental, consequential or other damages of any type or kind arising out of, or in any way connected with the Services, including but not limited to the use or inability to use the Services, or for any content obtained from or through the Services, any interruption, inaccuracy, error or omission, regardless of cause in the content, even if the party from which damages are being sought or such party's licensors have been previously advised of the possibility of such damages.

Additional Rights

Certain states, provinces and/or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental, consequential or certain other types of damages, so the exclusions set forth above may not apply to you.

Modification to Terms

Boma reserves the right to modify the terms and conditions of this Agreement or its policies related to the Services at any time, effective upon the posting of an updated version of this Agreement on the Website. You are responsible for regularly reviewing this Agreement. Continued use of the Services after any such changes are posted shall constitute your consent to such changes.
