Terms of Services
Last Updated on April 23, 2020
Dear friends, welcome to meShare! Thank you for choosing meShare's products, websites, services, devices and apps ("Services"). meShare ("we", "us" or "our") is THE global leading IoT platform provider. We are connecting everything, and most importantly, YOU.
The Agreement. Our Privacy Notice, Two-year Limited Warranty, Open Source Agreement, Software End User Licensing Agreement and Sales Terms are incorporated into this Terms of Services (collectively referred to as the "Agreement") by reference as if fully set forth herein.
Binding Contract. The Agreement serves as a guide to help you understand our Services, and also constitutes a legally binding agreement between you and meShare. Your use of our Services indicates that you have read, accepted and agreed to the Agreement and constitutes your consent to the Agreement too. You also agree that by registering, accessing or using our Services, including our free Services, you have agreed to this Agreement, which is a legally binding contract between you and meShare.
Age. As a principle of law, only persons with legal capacity can form a binding contract with others. Accordingly, (1) if you are under 18, we cannot offer Services to you because it is our responsibility to protect you, so please discontinue the use of our Services in the future; (2) if you are between 13 and 18 (or the equivalent minimum age in the jurisdiction where you reside), you may only use the Services under the supervision of a parent or legal guardian who agrees to be bound by this Agreement. BY USING OUR SERVICES, YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT TO US THAT YOU ARE OVER THE AGE OF 18 (OR EQUIVALENT MINIMUM AGE IN THE JURISDICTION WHERE YOU RESIDE).
Not an Emergency Alert Service. meShare's Services are not designed to provide emergency alert services. By using meShare's Services you agree that they are not an emergency response system. Third-party emergency response solutions may be offered through meShare, but they will operate independently from meShare and meShare will not be responsible for any services provided by third parties.
IN THE EVENT OF ANY LIFE/SAFETY EMERGENCY, PLEASE CONTACT THE POLICE, FIRE DEPARTMENT, 911 OR ANY OTHER APPROPRIATE EMERGENCY RESPONSE SERVICE IMMEDIATELY INSTEAD OF MESHARE.
IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU WILL HAVE TO IMMEDIATELY CEASE USING AND/OR ACCESSING OUR SERVICES. Cloud Plans
We offer two types of cloud plans:
Premium Plan – Under the Premium Plan, you enjoy 7-day intelligent continuous cloud recording; alert clips will be stored in the meShare cloud. The first-day recording (00:00-24:00) in your 7-day cloud plan will be deleted from the cloud server automatically by the system at 24:00 on the 7th day, even if less than 24 hours’ recording is stored on the first day. PLEASE ALWAYS REMEMBER TO DOWNLOAD AND/OR BACK UP ANY CLOUD RECORDINGS OR ALERT CLIPS THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO RETAIN BEYOND THE STORAGE PERIOD IN YOUR PREMIUM PLAN. MESHARE WILL NOT BE LIABLE OR RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LOST CLOUD RECORDINGS OR ALERT CLIPS THAT YOU FAIL TO DOWNLOAD OR BACK UP IN TIME.
Platinum Plan – Under the Platinum Plan, you enjoy 30-day intelligent continuous cloud recording; alert clips will be stored in the meShare cloud. The earliest 24-hour recording of your 30-day cloud recordings will be first deleted from the cloud server automatically by the system once your period of cloud storage hits 30 days (24 hours * 30). PLEASE ALWAYS REMEMBER TO DOWNLOAD AND/OR BACK UP ANY CLOUD RECORDINGS OR ALERT CLIPS THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO RETAIN BEYOND THE STORAGE PERIOD IN YOUR PLATINUM PLAN. MESHARE WILL NOT BE LIABLE OR RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LOST CLOUD RECORDINGS OR ALERT CLIPS THAT YOU FAIL TO DOWNLOAD OR BACK UP IN TIME.
Cloud Plan Billing. For each of the Premium and Platinum Plans, you may initially subscribe for periods of 1 month, 6 months, or 1 year. Recurring subscription fees are billed or charged every month, 6 months, or 1 year, respectively, from the day of your initial subscription. If you subscribed on the 29th, 30th, or 31st of a month, and such date is later than the last day of a month in which subscription fees are due, your subscription will be renewed and billed on the last day of that month. For example, a 1 month subscription that began on March 31st will be renewed and billed on April 30th, etc. If any payment is not received in a timely manner, or if any credit card or similar transaction is rejected, meShare reserves the right to process any payment method you have submitted to retry billing until successful, or to cancel your subscription plan and to collect any rejection or insufficient funds fee due.
Automatic Renewal. In order to make sure that your continued use of our Services is not disrupted, your subscription period of 1 month, 6 months, or 1 year, as applicable, will be automatically renewed when your initial subscription expires, unless and until you choose to unsubscribe from us or we cancel your subscription.
Cancellations and Refunds. You may cancel your recurring subscription through your meShare account at any time, with or without cause. You may also cancel by contacting us at [email protected], but may be required to provide certain forms of authentication and verification of ownership. If you subscribed to the cloud plan through the iOS in-app purchase, your subscription and billing is managed by Apple. You will need to cancel your subscription from your iTunes account or by contacting Apple. Your cancellation date will be in accordance with the time stamp of the original contact. To avoid future billing, you must cancel your subscription before the next renewal date. Cloud subscription plans are not eligible for refunds. As such, after cancellation you will continue to enjoy access to the cloud plan until the last day of your current subscription period. After the subscription period ends, you will no longer be billed the recurring subscription fees, and your cloud recordings will be permanently deleted and will no longer be accessible to you.
