  3. SensMit Web Services reserves the right at any time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, your API feed (or any part thereof) to a third party with or without notice.

C. Payment, Refunds, Upgrading and Downgrading Terms

  1. Service charges comprise a fixed monthly Base fee per registered Base ID, plus a fee per reporting SensMit node per month. SensMitWeb automatically recognizes the number of SensMit nodes reporting each month. The application combines the two payments and bills your credit card account accordingly. Rates are provided on the Subscriptions page of the SensMitWeb.com site.
  2. All subscribers must enter a valid credit card. During the 30-day trial period, a credit card is not required.
  3. If a credit card is refused you will be notified by email, and will have two weeks to re-register the card or provide a new card. Your subscription will be terminated after a further two-week grace period, and all your data will become unavailable. A CSV download of all your data is enabled generally and also during the four week period after your card is refused.
  4. An upgrade to any paying plan will automatically commence billings to you at the end of the first billing period (month) for the Base fee, plus the rate per SensMit node during that period, and by applying for the upgrade you agree to be billed for Services provided.
  5. The Service is billed monthly based on the date of your subscription and is non-refundable. There will be no refunds or credits for partial months of service, upgrade/downgrade refunds, or refunds for months unused with an open account. In order to treat everyone equally, no exceptions will be made.
  6. All payments by credit card that result in a denial of charges, are subject to a 15% finance charge, and if not paid within 15 days are subject to disconnection of services. A $95.00 CAD reinstatement fee will apply.
  7. All fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and you shall be responsible for determination and payment of all such taxes, levies, or duties as applicable in your own jurisdiction(s).
  8. For any upgrade or downgrade in plan level, your credit card that you provided will automatically be charged the new rate on your next billing cycle.
  9. Downgrading your Service may cause the loss of Content, features, or capacity of your Account. SensMit Web Services does not accept any liability for such loss.

D. Wireless Services Supplied Via Cell Modem

  1. Sensor Data is encrypted at the moment it is collected by SensMit, and is decrypted only once it has entered the SensMit Web Services site (or during in-field viewing using the SensMit logger device). While we have made every reasonable effort to ensure the security of your data, data transmitted wirelessly is susceptible to interception. You further understand that neither SensMit Web Services nor the wireless service carrier can guarantee the security of wireless transmissions and we will not be liable for any lack of security relating to the use of the Service.
  2. You have no contractual relationship with the wireless service carrier. You understand and agree that SensMit Web Services and the wireless service carrier shall have no legal, equitable, or other liability of any kind to you except as otherwise specified in this agreement.
  3. If the wireless service carrier fails to deliver or interrupts services to SensMit Web Services, we will be unable to provide you data transfer Services related to any SensMit-platform-associated modem you may be using during those times, and will accept no liability nor refund any Service fees related to your losses during that period. Using the data shuttling and upload capabilities of the SensMit Platform during any such events may allow you to retain uninterrupted data flow.
  4. Subject to FCC Number portability rules, you have no property right in any number assigned to your modem and you understand that any such number can be changed from time to time.
  5. You acknowledge that Service may be temporarily refused, interrupted, curtailed or limited because of atmospheric, terrain, other natural or artificial conditions and may be temporarily interrupted or curtailed due to usage concentrations, modifications, upgrades, relocation and repairs of transmission facilities.  You agree that the SensMit Web Services and the wireless service carrier shall not be responsible for such interruptions of Service or for the inability to use the Service outside the territory.
  6. In no event shall SensMit Web Services or the wireless service carrier be liable for any cost, delay, failure or disruption of Service, lost profits, or incidental, special, punitive, or consequential damages.
  7. In no event shall SensMit Web Services or the wireless service carrier be liable for the failure or incompatibility of equipment utilized by you in connection with the Service.  You shall use equipment at your own risk.
  8. You shall indemnify, defend and hold SensMit Web Services and the wireless service carrier and the officers, employees and agents of each of them harmless from and against all claims, causes of action, losses, expenses, liability or damages (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs), and including without limitation for any personal injury or death, arising in any way directly or indirectly in connection with the Terms of Service; the provision or use of the Service; or the use, failure to use or inability to use the number.  This provision shall survive the termination of the Terms of Service Agreement.
  9. You acknowledge that the Terms of Service Agreement is assignable by SensMit Web Services.
  10. Your Service may be temporarily suspended or permanently terminated upon little or no notice in the event that the provider’s wireless agreement with SensMit Web Services is terminated.  You waive any and all claims against the wireless service carrier for such suspension or termination.

E. Voluntary Suspension

  1. The service cannot be entirely suspended. The Base fee carries on for as long as your plan is current and until you ‘Cancel’ your Subscription on the My Subscriptions page.
  2. By removing your SensMit nodes from solar power (either by storing them inside or by putting a light-proof cap over them), you disable them. When they do not report for an entire month or longer, you are not charged the ‘per SensMit node’ portion of the fee.

F. Cancellation and Termination

  1. You are solely responsible for properly canceling your account. An email or phone request to cancel your account is not considered cancellation. Be sure to download all of your data via the CSV download facility prior to cancelling your account. You can cancel your account at any time by clicking on the Subscription Settings link in the global navigation bar at the left of the screen, and then clicking ‘Cancel’ at the right of ‘Your Current Plan’.
  2. You may cancel your account at any time. The Account screen provides a simple ‘no questions asked’ cancellation link.
  3. All of your Content will be immediately deleted from the Service upon cancellation. This information cannot be recovered once your account is cancelled.
  4. SensMit Web Services will not terminate your account without just cause. Just cause includes the following:  nonpayment of charges owing, abusive or excessive data usage or for such other reasonable grounds as may be established from time to time.

Such notice may be provided at any time by posting the changes to the SensMit Web Services Site (sensmitwebdiv.com). An email will also be sent to the registrant.
