Patrolio Home Escalation Service
THE ESCALATION SERVICE
While you have an active premium subscription (the “Escalation Service”), Patrolio or the Escalation Service Provider may SMS or notify you of an escalation. You may use SMS or mobile web app to transmit an escalation notice to the Escalation Service Provider. Subject to these terms, when your escalation notice is received by Patrolio and/or the Escalation Service Provider, you agree we will provide the Escalation Service Provider your phone number and then a Escalation Service Provider agent will contact you via telephone or SMS.
The Escalation Service Provider is an independent contractor of Patrolio; there is no partnership, joint venture, employment, franchise, or agency relationship between the Escalation Service Provider and Patrolio.
Only those Devices that are expressly supported and approved by Patrolio to be compatible with Home Escalation Service may be used and enrolled in this service. It is your responsibility to ensure that these devices are functioning properly per manufacturer’s instructions. It is also your responsibility to ensure that you have the right to share the recording, photographs, and audio from these devices with Patrolio.

While we aim for the Escalation Service to be highly reliable and available, it is not intended to be reliable or available 100% of the time. The Escalation Service is subject to sporadic interruptions and failures for a variety of reasons, including those beyond Patrolio’s control, such as service provider and mobile operator uptime. Additionally, in the event of any service interruptions to your Observed Property’s Wi-Fi network or internet connection, or to your mobile, telephone and other network connections with respect to the Patrolio App, the Escalation Service may be unreliable or unavailable for the duration of such interruption. Patrolio does not monitor for interruption in the connection of your Escalation Service Products or other services upon which the Escalation Service may depend to function properly and will not alert you should your Escalation Service Products go offline. You are solely responsible for ensuring proper connections for transmission of data with respect to the Escalation Service Products.

If you, as an Escalation Service subscriber, are required to comply with such regulations, then you are solely responsible for compliance, including to obtain, maintain and renew any required permits, registrations or licenses. This responsibility includes paying any applicable fees and renewal fees.

You are responsible for any such fees that are assessed against you or Patrolio. You hereby agree to, and will, indemnify Patrolio for any such fees and, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you expressly authorize Patrolio to, in its sole discretion, satisfy your indemnification obligation by billing or charging any payment method associated with your Patrolio account the full amount of the fee.
WITHOUT LIMITING OTHER RELEASES IN THESE ESCALATION SERVICE TERMS, YOU HEREBY RELEASE Patrolio FROM ANY DAMAGES, LOSSES OR EXPENSES RESULTING FROM OR AS A CONSEQUENCE OF FALSE ESCALATIONS.

“Disputes” shall include, but are not limited to, any claims or controversies between you and Patrolio against each other related in any way to or arising out of in any way from this Agreement, the Services, the Products, and/or the Content, including but not limited to sales, returns, refunds, cancellations, defects, policies, privacy, advertising, or any communications between you and Patrolio, even if the claim arises after you or Patrolio has terminated Services or a user account. Disputes also include, but are not limited to, claims that: (a) you bring against our employees, agents, affiliates, or other representatives; or (b) Patrolio brings against you. Disputes also include, but are not limited to, (i) claims in any way related to or arising out of any aspect of the relationship between you and Patrolio, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, advertising claims, or any other legal theory; (ii) claims that arose before these Terms or out of a prior set of Terms with Patrolio; (iii) claims that are subject to on-going litigation where you are not a party or a class member; and/or (iv) claims that arise after the termination of these Terms.
Before initiating an arbitration, you and Patrolio each agree to first provide the other a written notice (“Notice of Dispute”), which shall contain: (a) a written description of the problem and relevant documents and supporting information; and (b) a statement of the specific relief sought. A Notice of Dispute should be sent to: 3225 McLeod Dr #100, Las Vegas NV 89121, Attention: Legal Department. We will provide a Notice of Dispute to you via the email address associated with your Patrolio account. You and Patrolio agree to attempt in good faith to resolve the Dispute prior to commencing an arbitration and not to commence an arbitration proceeding until a forty-five (45) day post-notice resolution period expires.
*Arbitration Process and Procedure *
If the parties do not reach an agreed upon solution within forty-five (45) days from the original Dispute Notice, then either party may initiate binding arbitration as the sole means to resolve claims, subject to these terms. Arbitration shall (1) be administered by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services, Inc. (“JAMS”), pursuant to the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures then in effect (the “JAMS Rules”) and as modified by this agreement to arbitrate, including the rules regarding filing, administration, discovery, and arbitrator fees; (2) be conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator; and (3) take place in the county where you reside or any reasonable location within the United States convenient for you. To the extent that this agreement to arbitrate conflicts with the JAMS Policy on Consumer Arbitrations Pursuant to Pre-Dispute Clauses Minimum Standards for Procedural Fairness (the “Minimum Standards”), the Minimum Standards in that regard will apply.
WE EACH AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEEDINGS WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION. Further, unless both you and Patrolio expressly agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If a court decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this subsection’s limitations as to a particular claim for relief, then that claim (and only that claim) must be severed from the arbitration and may be brought in court.
If, for any reason, a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, we each waive our right to a jury trial.
YOU THEREFORE UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND PATROLIO ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY AND THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION FOR ANY CLAIMS COVERED BY THIS AGREEMENT.
The JAMS Rules are available on its website at http://www.jamsadr.com/rules-streamlined-arbitration/. Notwithstanding any JAMS Rules to the contrary or any other provision in the arbitration rules chosen, by agreement, to govern, you and Patrolio each agree that all issues regarding the Dispute are delegated to the arbitrator to decide. Further, the arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of these Terms, including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of these Terms are void or voidable, or whether a claim is subject to arbitration. The arbitrator’s award shall be written, and binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
If your claim does not exceed $10,000 (USD), you and Patrolio agree to waive an oral hearing by the arbitrator and the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and Patrolio submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. To the extent an oral hearing is requested by you or Patrolio, or deemed necessary by the arbitrator, you and Patrolio agree that the hearing will be conducted telephonically or videographically.
An arbitrator's award will be a written statement of the disposition of each claim and will also provide a concise written statement of the essential findings and conclusions which form the basis of the award. The arbitrator's decision and award is final and binding, with some limited court review under the FAA, and judgment on the award may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
It is each parties' responsibility to pay any JAMS filing, case management/administrative, and arbitrator fees as set forth in the JAMS Rules. To the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds the cost of filing a lawsuit, Patrolio will pay the additional cost. If your claim for damages does not exceed $25,000 (USD) and you follow the dispute notice procedure set forth above, Patrolio will pay all such fees unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your Dispute or the relief sought was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in the Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)).
*Small Claims & Government Actions *
As an alternative to arbitration, you or Patrolio may resolve Disputes in a small claims court that has jurisdiction over your claim. These Terms and this arbitration agreement do not prevent you from bringing your Dispute to the attention of any federal, state, or local government agency. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against Patrolio on your behalf.
SEVERABILITY AND SURVIVAL
Provisions that, by their nature, should survive termination of these Terms shall survive termination. By way of example, all of the following will survive termination: any obligation you have to pay us or indemnify us, any limitations on our liability, any terms regarding ownership of intellectual property rights, and terms regarding disputes between us.
