DriveCommander.com Standard Terms and Conditions
Before installing or agreeing to have the DriveCommander application installed on your Device, you represent and warrant that you have (a) read this agreement in its entirety including the DriveCommander.com DriveCommander Software License (incorporated herein), (b) you understand and agree to the terms of this agreement, (c) you are at least 18 years of age, (d) if you are accepting this agreement for a child under 18 years of age you have the legal right to enter into this agreement on the child’s behalf.
These terms and conditions represent the entire agreement (“Agreement”) between you and DriveCommander.com with respect to DriveCommander. All references herein to “you” and “your” means you, your employees and any other person or entity on whose behalf you have the authority to accept these terms and conditions, all of whom shall also be bound by this Agreement to the extent permitted under applicable law.
The DriveCommander Service is a subscription-based program that allows DriveCommander to send and receive information to and from our servers via a wireless connection, providing features such as automatic activation when DriveCommander determines you are driving; redirection and/or forwarding of incoming calls; restricting the ability to make calls (other than emergency) or send email, Instant Messages (“IM”) or text messages (“SMS”) and a delay in the receipt and/or ability to read text or email messages. Please read this section carefully before you use DriveCommander, as it defines certain additional terms and conditions that will specifically apply to your use of the DriveCommander Service.
DriveCommander will not restrict mobile phone use in all circumstances. These circumstances include but are not limited to: inability to obtain an accurate Global Positioning System (“GPS”) reading to determine driving, speed of the vehicle below the threshold speed, heavy traffic or long stoplights, the use of the Passenger option by the driver of a vehicle and DriveCommander being configured by you to simply report on usage, but not restrict usage.
DriveCommander utilises a mobile device’s GPS functionality to determine driving. GPS data may not always be available due to underground parking structures, terrain, high-rise buildings, or other environmental elements. At times, a mobile device may report erroneous results that will not enable DriveCommander to determine when a user is driving. Any GPS inaccuracies or malfunctions may interfere with DriveCommander and are not malfunctions of the application. This may result in failure of DriveCommander to redirect or limit calls and texts and other communications during a drive as well as activation of DriveCommander and attendant limitation and disruption of your communication when you are not driving.
While DriveCommander is designed to allow access to emergency calls at all times, there is always a risk of technical failure, in particular during testing or conversion of the system for upgrades or general maintenance, in which case, such emergency calls may be blocked or otherwise impeded to and from the emergency service. YOU ACCEPT AND AGREE THAT BY USING FLEETSAFER YOU MAY RISK BLOCKS TO AND DISRUPTION OF EMERGENCY CALLS DUE TO POSSIBLE TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES THAT MAY OCCUR.
