  1. YOUR VEHICLE DATA.  We claim no ownership of any vehicle data generated by and associated with our devices installed in your particular vehicle(s) (“Individual Vehicle Data”) that is transmitted or processed using our Products, provided however that you hereby instruct us and grant to us the right to use, process and transmit Individual Vehicle Data as reasonably required for the purposes for which it is provided to us, including the provision, administration, troubleshooting and improvement of our Products or as required by applicable law.  In furtherance of such purposes, based on certain non-position data elements in your vehicle database (such as vehicle VIN), from time to time in certain jurisdictions we may query, on a confidential basis, databases maintained by reputable third party providers for additional information.

 

  1. AGGREGATED DATA.  You acknowledge that Geotab compiles, stores and uses aggregated data and system usage information to monitor and improve the Products and for the creation of new products.  This aggregated data is no longer associated with a device and as such is not Individual Vehicle Data.

You understand and agree that any feedback, input, suggestions, recommendations, troubleshooting information or other similar information that you provide or which is made available to us (whether directly or through a reseller including in the course of utilizing support, maintenance or other services)  may be used by us to modify, enhance, maintain and improve our Products and shall become our exclusive property without any obligation or payment to you or to any of your customers whatsoever.

 

  1. OUR LIMITED PRODUCT WARRANTY. We warrant that during the Warranty Period each Product (excluding beta, test or demonstration products or product versions) will perform in accordance with the written specifications that we issue with respect to such Product, subject to the limitations and conditions set forth in our specifications and this Agreement, when used in accordance with our documentation and specifications. “Warranty Period” means either: (a) the one year period commencing on the activation date; or (b) the lifetime of the device, provided that the device is activated on certain rate plans (currently the ProPlus rate plan and any other rate plan as announced by us from time to time (“Limited Lifetime Warranty”)). Provided you properly complete and we receive from you, directly or through an authorized reseller, a justified written warranty claim and, if applicable, all affected devices (returned at your expense to the reseller from whom you purchased the devices or as otherwise specified by us), prior to the expiration of the Warranty Period, we will either repair or replace such device or use commercially reasonable efforts to correct any material defects in software and services. We reserve the right to replace any device and software with a more current version or model or refurbished device units in our sole discretion. We also reserve the right to charge you return shipping and a service fee if we determine that your warranty claim was not justified. The remaining Warranty Period for any purchased Products we repair or replace under warranty is deemed to be the greater of: (aa) the actual remaining Warranty Period for the replaced or repaired Product; and (bb) 90 days following the completion of such repair or replacement. Additionally, under the Limited Lifetime Warranty we will replace the device in accordance with the process specified above if the network on which the device operates no longer provides adequate coverage in your usage area (as determined by us in our discretion). To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, the foregoing constitutes your sole and exclusive remedy and our sole and exclusive obligation for any breach of the foregoing warranty.

 

  1. CONDITIONS AND EXCLUSIONS.  Warranty claims must be submitted within 10 days of the date when you did notice or could reasonably have noticed the defect.  In order to make a warranty claim, you may be required to prove that the installation did not cause the defects or failures of the Product, unless the installation was performed by a Geotab-certified installer. Any products, services or items made or supplied by third parties (including vehicles tracked with our Products) are not covered by our limited warranty and we are not responsible for malfunctions by or in such products, services or items. You need to purchase, license or procure products, software, data or services from third parties to enable the full use or functionality of our Products. You are responsible for ensuring that all such third party products, software, data or services meet our minimum requirements, including without limitation, processing speed, memory, client software, internet access, internet or other communication channel bandwidth.

 

  1. INSTALLATION WARNING. Certain vehicles or installation configurations may require professional installation, additional equipment or modifications to your vehicles.

Improper installation can lead to short circuits and the risk of fire, leading to personal injury or significant damage to your vehicle. Installation or servicing may also require modifications to your vehicle. Failure to comply with procedures specified in the installation instructions for a Product, or attempting to install our Products without adequate knowledge of our Products, proper installation, configuration, servicing, repair or removal procedures, for your vehicle, may result in damage to the Product or your vehicle, which may cause malfunctions of vehicle controls or vehicular environmental systems and result in personal injury. You understand that any such activities not performed by an authorized Geotab reseller or installer will be at your sole risk. You hereby release and forever discharge, and will indemnify and hold harmless, us, our affiliates, resellers and agents and their directors, officers, employees and representatives from any and all losses, actions, causes of action, liability, claims, demands, penalties, costs, expenses (including legal fees and disbursements on a full indemnity basis), judgments and damages of any nature or kind whatsoever, whether under contract, tort, or any other theory of law or equity, which you or any other third party has or will have, arising or accruing from, as a result of, in relation to, or in connection with, same.
