6. Agreed Usage and Limitations of the Services
Intended Use of the Services
The Services are intended to be accessed and used for non-time-critical information and control of Stratio products. While we aim for the Services to be highly reliable and available, they are not intended to be reliable or available at all times. The Services are subject to sporadic interruptions and failures for a variety of reasons beyond Stratio’s control, including, without limitation, Wi-Fi intermittency and service provider uptime. Due to differences in scanning procedures and inability to guarantee scan conditions we are not responsible for, nor guarantee, the accuracy of any results of the Product, the Software, the Mobile App or any other Services. You acknowledge these limitations and agree that Stratio is not responsible for any damages allegedly caused by the failure or delay of the Services to reflect current status or notifications.
No Life-Safety or Critical Uses of the Services
You acknowledge and agree that the Products and the Services, whether standing alone or when interfaced with any third-party products or services, are not certified for emergency response. Stratio makes no representation or warranty that use of the Products or the Services, including integration with any third-party product or service, will affect or increase any level of safety. In addition, our customer support contacts should not be considered a lifesaving solution for people at risk in the home, and they are no substitute for emergency services. All life threatening and emergency events should be directed to the appropriate response services or authorities.
The Services may be suspended temporarily without notice for security reasons, system failure, maintenance and repair, or other circumstances. You agree that you will not be entitled to any refund or rebate for such suspensions. Stratio does not offer any specific uptime guarantee for the Services.
Access to the Services is limited to those with the necessary system requirements, as published in connection with such Services. Certain Services will not be accessible without: (i) a working Wi-Fi network in your locality that is positioned to communicate reliably with the Product; (ii) (ii) mobile clients such as a supported phone or tablet (required for some functionality); (iii) always-on broadband Internet access in your locality; and/or (iv) other system elements that may be specified by Stratio. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have all required system elements and they are compatible and properly configured. You acknowledge that the Services may not work as described when the requirements and compatibility have not been met.
Fees and Payment
Certain Services may be offered for a fee. You shall pay all applicable fees in connection with the Services selected by you in accordance with the relevant terms of sale stipulated.
Stratio is dedicated to the highest quality products and services. When consumers purchase a Stratio Product new, they expect that the Product comes directly from Stratio or its authorized distributors and the quality controls in that sales channel. You agree not to sell any Stratio Product as new and without prominent marking as a “USED” product unless you are one of our authorized distributors or certified resellers.
Access to the Contents
You acknowledge and agree that all Contents accessed by you using the Services is at your own risk and you will be solely responsible for any damage or loss to any party resulting therefrom.

You acknowledge and agree that: (i) the use and availability of the Services may be dependent on the third party product vendors and service providers, (ii) these Third Party Products and/or Services may not operate in a reliable manner at all times, and they may impact the way that the Services operate, and (iii) Stratio is not responsible, directly or indirectly, for any damages and losses due to or in connection with the operation or use of these Third Party Products and/or Services.

Although the Mobile App and the Software are offered by Stratio, you acknowledge and agree that the Third Party Products and/or Services that you connect to your Account or interface with are not products and services of Stratio, and that Stratio does not control, and these Terms do not apply to, any Third Party Products and/or Services. Your use of any Third Party Products and/or Services is governed by separate terms and conditions provided by the operator(s) of the applicable Third Party Products and/or Services. Stratio makes no representation or warranty about the safety of any Third Party Products and/or Services. Accordingly, Stratio is not responsible for your use of any Third Party Product and/or Service or any personal injury, death, property damage (including, without limitation, damage to your home or the Product), or other harm or losses arising from or relating to your use of any Third Party Products and/or Services. You should contact the operator of the Third Party Products and/or Services with any questions about such Third Party Products and/or Services.
Third Party Website Links and Referrals
The Services may contain links to other websites operated by third parties (the “Third Party Sites”) and referrals to third party vendors (the “Referred Vendors”), for your convenience. We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for, such Third Party Sites and Referred Vendors, or the contents provided through such Third Party Sites and Referred Vendors.

You acknowledge that these Terms are between you and Stratio and not with an App Store. Each App Store may have its own terms and conditions to which you must agree before downloading the Mobile App from it. You agree to comply with, and your license to use the Mobile App is conditioned upon your compliance with, such terms and conditions of each App Store. To the extent such other terms and conditions from the relevant App Store are less restrictive than, or otherwise conflict with, the terms and conditions of these Terms, the more restrictive or conflicting terms and conditions in these Terms shall govern.
Release Regarding Third Parties
Stratio is not responsible for third parties or their products and services, including, without limitation, the App Stores, the Third Party Products and/or Services, the Third Party Sites, the Referred Vendors, the Equipment, the ISPs, and the Carriers. Stratio hereby expressly disclaims, and you hereby expressly discharge, waive and release Stratio and its licensors and suppliers from any past, present, and future claims, liabilities, and damages, known or unknown, arising out of or relating to your interactions with such third parties and their products and services.

14. Disputes and Arbitration
Contact Stratio First
If a dispute arises between you and Stratio, our goal is to learn about and address your concerns. You hereby agree that you will first notify Stratio about any dispute you have with Stratio regarding these Terms or our Products or Services by contacting Stratio.
You and Stratio agree, subject to the Protection of Confidentiality and Intellectual Property Rights clause of these Terms, to submit any claim, dispute, action, cause of action, issue, or request for relief arising out of or relating to these Terms or your use of the Services to binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) in accordance with the provisions of its Commercial Arbitration Rules and of its supplementary procedures for consumer-related disputes, excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions. You further agree that such arbitration is final and binding and subject to only very limited review by a court. You also waive your right to any form of appeal, review or recourse to any court or other judicial authority, insofar as such waiver may be validly made. This provision is intended to be interpreted broadly to encompass all disputes or claims arising out of or relating to these Terms or your use of the Services. Subject to the Protection of Confidentiality and Intellectual Property Rights clause of these Terms, any dispute or claim made by you against us or us against you arising out of or relating to these Terms or your use of the Services (whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory) will be resolved by binding arbitration except that you may take claims to small claims court if they qualify for hearing by such a court.
You must first present any claim or dispute to us by contacting Stratio to allow us an opportunity to resolve the dispute. You may request arbitration if your claim or dispute cannot be resolved within sixty (60) days after presenting the claim or dispute to Stratio. Stratio may request arbitration against you at any time after it has notified you of a claim or dispute in accordance with the Notifications clause of these Terms. The place of arbitration will be San Jose, California, USA, and the arbitration proceeding will be conducted in the English language. Claims will be heard by a single arbitrator. The arbitrator may not award relief in excess of or contrary to what these Terms provide, order consolidation or arbitration on a class wide or representative basis, award punitive or consequential damages or any other damages aside from the prevailing party’s actual damages, or order injunctive or declaratory relief, except that the arbitrator may award on an individual basis damages required by statute and may order injunctive or declaratory relief pursuant to an applicable consumer protection statute. All administrative fees and expenses of arbitration will be divided equally between you and Stratio. Each party will bear the expense of its own counsel, experts, witnesses and preparation and presentation of evidence at the arbitration hearing. Any arbitration shall be confidential, and neither you, nor Stratio may disclose the existence, content or results of any arbitration, except as may be required by law or for purposes of enforcement or appeal of the arbitration award. Judgment on any arbitration award shall be binding on the parties and may be entered in any court having proper jurisdiction. If any portion of this arbitration clause is determined by a court to be inapplicable or invalid, then the remainder shall still be given full force and effect.
No Class Actions
There shall be no right or authority for any claims subject to this arbitration clause to be arbitrated on a class action or consolidated basis or on bases involving claims brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public (including, but not limited to, as a private attorney general).
Limitation on Claims
Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to these Terms or your use of the Services must be filed within one (1) year from the date of the occurrence of the event or facts giving rise to a dispute, or you waive the right to pursue any claim based upon such event, facts, or dispute.
15. Governing Law
These Terms, and any claim, dispute, action, cause of action, issue, or request for relief arising out of or relating to these Terms or your use of the Products and the Services shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of California, without giving effect to any conflict of laws principles that may provide the application of the law of another jurisdiction. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the state and federal courts in or for Santa Clara County, California for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes, unless such claim or dispute is required to be arbitrated as set forth in the above section.
Protection of Confidentiality and Intellectual Property Rights
Notwithstanding any provisions to the contrary herein, Stratio may seek injunctive or other equitable relief to protect its confidential information and intellectual property rights or to prevent loss of data or damage to its servers in any court of competent jurisdiction.
These Terms and any rights or obligations associated thereto may not be assigned or otherwise transferred by you without Stratio’s prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms or any rights or obligations associated thereto without such consent will be null and void. These Terms may be assigned by Stratio without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto, their successors and permitted assigns.
Entire Agreement; Headings; Severability, etc.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Stratio regarding the use of the Services. Any failure by Stratio to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not operate as a waiver of such right or provision. The section titles and headings in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. If any provision of these Terms is, for any reason, held to be invalid or unenforceable, the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect and the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed modified so that it is valid and enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by law. Neither party is an agent or partner of the other party.
Stratio may provide notifications to you as required by law or for marketing or other purposes via (at its option) email, mobile notifications, hard copy, or posting of such notice on the Site. Stratio is not responsible for any automatic filtering you or your network provider may apply to email notifications.

If you are the original purchaser of the Product and you are not satisfied with the Product for any reason, you may cancel your order and return the relevant Product in its original condition within thirty (30) days of the original purchase, in which case you will receive a refund in the sum of the purchase price you paid for the Product minus any fees assessed by our payment system for the cancellation. To return your Product you need to contact customer support at Stratio for a Return Merchandise Authorization (“RMA”) number. The Product must be received by Stratio within thirty (30) days after issuance, and any Product returned after this period will be subject to a partial refund at the discretion of Stratio. If, upon receipt of the Product, Stratio determines that the returned Product is not in its original condition or has been tampered with or used/treated in a way that contraindicates the Quick Start Guide or the Product and Safety Instructions, Stratio is entitled to withhold a refund and not to return the Product to you.
Return and Warranty Service Process.
To obtain warranty service, you must first obtain an RMA number by contacting our customer support. Customer support contact information can be found by visiting linksquare.io/contact. Stratio may ask for additional information upon request. Issued RMA numbers remain valid for thirty (30) days from issuance. Once an RMA number is obtained, your Product must be shipped freight prepaid, together with proof of purchase and all accessories, either in its original packaging or packaging affording an equal degree of protection, to the location designated by Stratio. Failure to return any of the accessories may result in a delay and/or result in a credit to Stratio, deduction from the relevant refund amount or an invoice for the missing accessories.
In performing warranty service, Stratio may furnish replacement parts on an exchange basis and replaced parts will become the property of Stratio. Replacement parts provided by Stratio shall be new or refurbished and of comparable quality, and may be a different part that contains compatible features and functions. In all cases, Stratio’s determination as to whether or not the Product is defective and covered by the Limited Warranty will be final. The Warranty Period of any replacement Product will be the remaining period of one (1) year from the original purchase.
Scope and Limitation/Exclusion of Warranty.
The warranty on the Product is limited to the repair or replacement of those defective Products as described in the section titled Limited Warranty above.
This warranty does not cover any damages (i) due to any reasons or forces beyond our reasonable control, such as acts of God, internet or power outages, wars, riots, terrorism, labor disputes, earthquakes, floods or other events of “force majeure,” accident, misuse, abuse, negligence, commercial use or modification of, or to any part of, your Product; (ii) caused by any third party product, service or system, use of the Product for purposes other than for which the Product was designed or intended, abnormal physical or electrical stress, use in improper environmental conditions, or use of the Product in violation of written instructions provided by Stratio, in the Quick Start Guide or Product and Safety Instructions (which may be provided at the time of purchase or on its website at linksquare.io/help). This warranty does not cover consumable parts (such as batteries), nor any defects due to normal wear and tear, scratches, nicks and dents or aging. Furthermore, this warranty does not cover any damages due to improper repair, operation or maintenance, or connections to improper voltage supply or, to the extent allowed by law, attempted repair by anyone other than the personnel authorized by Stratio to service the Product.
Stratio reserves the right to change the method by which Stratio may provide warranty service to you, and your Product’s eligibility to receive any particular method of warranty service under the terms of this Limited Warranty.
The Product is not a medical device and has not been approved (or submitted for approval) by the Food and Drug Administration, and as such, Stratio makes no medical claims regarding the Product.
Any sample or model is given for demonstrative purposes only, and such sample or model does not create a warranty of any kind that the Product you purchased shall conform thereto. Any warranties, based on any such sample or model, are specifically disclaimed.
In the usage of the Product, Stratio does not warrant against ay usages outside of the Product and Safety Instructions.
