Hubsai, Inc. (“Hubsai,” “we,” or “us,” as applicable) provides the user (“you”) with a smart-home platform (the “Platform”). The Platform consists of (a) a smart home hardware device (the “Product”), (b) software embedded in the Product (the “Embedded Software”) and installed on your mobile device (the “App Software” and, collectively with the Embedded Software, the “Software”), and (c) smart home services accessible through your use of the Software (the “Services”). This Hubsai End User License Agreement (“User Agreement”) governs your access to, and use of, the Platform.

BY CLICKING THE “AGREE” BUTTON OR EXECUTING A HUBSAI ORDER FORM FOR THE PLATFORM, YOU (i) ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND THIS USER AGREEMENT, (ii) REPRESENT THAT YOU ARE 18 YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER OR OF LEGAL AGE REQUIRED IN YOUR JURISDICTION TO ENTER INTO A BINDING AGREEMENT, AND (iii) ACCEPT THIS USER AGREEMENT AND AGREE THAT YOU ARE LEGALLY BOUND BY ITS TERMS. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THIS USER AGREEMENT, YOU MAY NOT USE THE PLATFORM. THE PRODUCT IS LEASED, NOT SOLD, TO YOU AND THE SOFTWARE IS LICENSED, NOT SOLD, TO YOU.

We may make changes to this User Agreement from time to time. If we make changes, we will provide you with notice of such changes, such as by sending an email, providing a notice through the Platform, or updating the date at the top of this User Agreement. Unless we say otherwise in our notice, the amended User Agreement will be effective immediately, and your continued use of the Platform after we provide such notice will confirm your acceptance of the changes. If you do not agree to the amended User Agreement, you must stop using the Platform.

1. Your Rights. Subject to your compliance with this User Agreement, we grant you a non-exclusive, internal license to (a) use one copy of the Embedded Software, in executable object code form only, solely on the Product that you control, (b) install and use the App Software on the mobile device you own or are authorized to control (your “Device”), and (c) access the Services on your Device, in each case for the sole purpose of controlling and monitoring the Product you are authorized to control.

2. Restrictions. You agree not to, and you will not permit others to, (a) license, sell, resell, rent, lease, assign, distribute, transmit, host, outsource, disclose or otherwise commercially exploit the Platform or any components thereof or make the Platform or any portion thereof available to any third party, (b) access or use the Platform or any portion thereof for any purpose other than as permitted in Section 1, (c) remove or alter any trademark, logo, copyright or other proprietary notices, legends, symbols or labels in the Platform or any portion thereof, (d) copy, reproduce, republish, modify, make derivative works of, disassemble, reverse compile, or reverse engineer the Platform or any portion thereof, or (e) upload, transmit, or distribute any computer viruses, worms, or software intended to damage or alter the Platform or any portion thereof. You may not release the results of any performance or functional evaluation of the Software to any third party without prior written approval of Hubsai for each such release. You may not access or use the Platform or any portion thereof in order to build a competitive service or product. You must use the Platform and all components thereof in accordance with applicable law. Hubsai owns the Platform and each of the Product, Embedded Software, App Software, and Services, and all and any and all Intellectual Property Rights embodied in or related to the foregoing. For purposes of this User Agreement, “Intellectual Property Rights” means patent rights, copyrights, moral rights, trademark rights, trade secret rights, and any other form of intellectual property rights recognized in any jurisdiction, including applications and registrations for any of the foregoing.

3. Term and Termination. This User Agreement begins on the date you click “Agree” or execute a Hubsai order form for the Platform (the “Effective Date”) and will continue until terminated as set forth herein. We reserve the right to terminate this User Agreement, modify the Platform, or suspend or stop providing all or portions of the Platform at any time. You may terminate this User Agreement at any time by notifying us at legal@hubsai.com. Upon termination or expiration of this User Agreement, you will discontinue your use of the Platform and return the product to 2603 Camino Ramon, Suite 407, San Ramon, CA 94583. Notwithstanding any other provisions of this User Agreement, Section 2, Section 3, and Sections 4 through 9 survive any termination of this User Agreement.

4. Fees; Upgrades; Support. We provide the Platform for free during the first two (2) years of this User Agreement (the “Initial Term”). ON THE TWO-YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF THIS USER AGREEMENT AND THEREAFTER (THE “FEE TERM” AND, COLLECTIVELY WITH THE INITIAL TERM, THE “TERM”), WE WILL BEGIN TO CHARGE FEES FOR YOUR ACCESS AND USE OF THE PLATFORM ON AN ANNUAL BASIS (THE “FEES”), WHICH SUCH FEES WILL AUTOMATICALLY RENEW EACH YEAR DURING THE FEE TERM UNTIL YOU TERMINATE THIS USER AGREEMENT BY NOTIFYING US AT legal@hubsai.com. WE WILL DISCLOSE THE FEES TO YOU BEFORE CHARGING YOUR PAYMENT METHOD. ALL FEES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE AND NON-CANCELABLE ONCE BILLED UNLESS WE ARE REQUIRED BY LAW TO REFUND OR CANCEL THEM. During the Term, we will provide to you at no charge (a) upgrades to the Product and Software and (b) support Services in connection with the Platform. You may be required to grant to Hubsai the right to remotely access your Device for purposes of performing certain Services. If you do not grant such access, and you are unable to access your account for reasons outside of Hubsai’s reasonable control (e.g., by losing your password), you may be required to pay a fee for us to restore your access to the Platform.

5. Third-Party Services; Disclaimers. You acknowledge and agree that (a) the use and availability of the Platform is dependent on third-party products, services, vendors and service providers (the “Third-Party Services”), (b) the Third-Party Services may not operate in a reliable manner and may impact the way the Platform operates, and (c) Hubsai is not responsible for damages or losses due to the operation of the Third-Party Services. YOUR USE OF THE PLATFORM IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK. EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE PROVIDED IN A WRITING BY US, THE PLATFORM AND ANY CONTENT THEREIN IS PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. IN ADDITION, HUBSAI DOES NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THAT THE PLATFORM IS ACCURATE, COMPLETE, RELIABLE, CURRENT OR ERROR-FREE. WHILE HUBSAI ATTEMPTS TO MAKE YOUR USE OF THE PLATFORM AND ANY CONTENT THEREIN SAFE, WE CANNOT AND DO NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THAT THE PLATFORM OR OUR SERVERS ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS. YOU ASSUME THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PLATFORM.

6. Indemnity. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you will indemnify, defend and hold harmless Hubsai and our officers, directors, agents, partners, resellers, customers, and employees from and against any losses, liabilities, claims, demands, damages, expenses or costs arising out of or related to your breach or alleged breach of the restrictions set forth Section 2.

7. Limitations of Liability. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, Hubsai will not be liable to you under any theory of liability—whether based in contract, tort, negligence, strict liability, warranty, or otherwise—for any indirect, consequential, exemplary, incidental, punitive or special damages or lost profits, even if Hubsai has been advised of the possibility of such damages. The total liability of Hubsai for any claim arising out of or relating to this User Agreement or the Platform, regardless of the form of the action, is limited to $2,000. Multiple claims will not expand this limitation. This Section 7 will be given full effect even if any remedy specified in this User Agreement is deemed to have failed of its essential purpose.

However, you understand and agree that in accordance with this User Agreement, Hubsai has disclaimed all warranties of any kind with respect to the iOS App, and therefore, there are no warranties applicable to the iOS App.

The following terms apply if you install, access or use the App Software on any Device that contains the Android mobile operating system (the “Android App”) developed by Google, Inc. (“Google”):

  • Your use of our Android App must comply with Google’s then-current Android Market Terms of Service.
  • Google is only a provider of the Android Market where you obtained the Android App. We, and not Google, are solely responsible for our Android App and the services and content available thereon. Google has no obligation or liability to you with respect to our Android App or this User Agreement.
  • You acknowledge and agree that Google is a third-party beneficiary to this User Agreement as it relates to our Android App.

9. General. This User Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and Hubsai relating to your access to and use of the Platform. Any dispute arising from this User Agreement or your use of the Platform will be governed by the laws of the State of California, without regard to its internal conflict of law rules. Any dispute between the parties that cannot be heard in small claims court will be resolved in the state or federal courts sitting in Contra Costa County, California. If any provision or part of a provision of this User Agreement is unlawful, void or unenforceable, that provision or part of the provision is deemed severable from this User Agreement and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. No failure or delay (in whole or in part) on the part of a party to exercise any right or remedy hereunder will operate as a waiver thereof or effect any other right or remedy. All rights and remedies hereunder are cumulative and are not exclusive of any other rights or remedies provided hereunder or by law. The waiver of one breach or default or any delay in exercising any rights will not constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach or default. Neither this User Agreement nor any right or duty under this User Agreement may be transferred, assigned or delegated by you, by operation of law or otherwise, without the prior written consent of Hubsai, and any attempted transfer, assignment or delegation without such consent will be void and without effect. Hubsai may freely transfer, assign or delegate this User Agreement, in whole or in part, without your prior written consent. Hubsai is not responsible for any loss or harm related to your inability to access or use the Platform.
