App Terms

Safedome App terms - please read carefully before using the App

 The Safedome App requires a smartphone, internet access and the iOS or android operating system. Whilst it may be possible to download and use the App with a tablet device, the service is designed to operate with smartphones and features of the service may not be available if the App is downloaded to and/or operated with any device other than a smartphone.

These are the terms and conditions of your end-user licence agreement (“App Agreement”) for the Safedome mobile application software (“App”). In addition to your rights under these terms and conditions, you may also have rights granted to you by statute. These terms and conditions do not affect such statutory rights (e.g. where the App is defective).

As this version of the software is purely for trial, the App is provided “as is” and no guarantees are made regarding the functions and features seen within it.

We licence use of the App to you on the basis of this App Agreement and subject to any rules or policies (“Appstore Rules”) applied by any appstore provider or operator from whose site you downloaded the App (“Appstore”).

The Terms and Conditions and the Appstore Rules are incorporated into this App Agreement by reference. In the event of any inconsistency between this App Agreement, the Terms and Conditions and the Appstore Rules, the order of precedence will be: the Terms and Conditions (highest precedence); App Agreement; and Appstore Rules (lowest precedence).

 

How the Contract is Formed Between Us

  • If you do not agree to the terms of this App Agreement, we will not license the App to you.
  • You may cancel your use of the App at any time without affecting your service membership.
  • You should print a copy of this App Agreement for future reference.
