General

You agree that any dispute arising under these Terms or the Privacy Policy shall be submitted to binding arbitration according to the rules and regulations of, and administered by, the American Arbitration Association, and that any award granted pursuant to such arbitration may be rendered to final judgment. If any dispute arises hereunder, the prevailing party shall be entitled to all costs and attorney’s fees from the losing party for enforcement of any right included in these Terms or Privacy Policy, whether in Arbitration, a Court of first jurisdiction and all Courts of Appeal. These Terms and the Privacy Policy shall be governed under the laws of Florida, without regards to conflict of law principles, and the venue for any disputes hereunder shall be in Ormond Beach, Volusia County, Florida, or the federal courts encompassing such venue. In the event any provision of these Terms or the Privacy Policy is determined by an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction to be void, the remaining provisions shall remain binding on the parties hereto with the same effect as though the void provision(s) had been limited or deleted, as applicable.

Certain obligations set forth herein represent independent covenants by which you may be bound and shall remain bound regardless of any breach of these Terms and the Privacy Policy and shall survive termination of these Terms or your use of the Services.

ECN may assign these Terms in its sole discretion. You are not permitted to assign these Terms without the prior, written consent of ECN. The failure by ECN to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. The section headings in these Terms are provided solely for the convenience of the reader and do not modify these.

As a Subscriber or User, you understand and agree that ECN may send you communications, announcements, newsletters, service announcements and other administrative messages. These messages are separate from any messages sent by ECN’s Clients or Users. Additional terms regarding User and Subscriber information are contained in ECN’s Privacy Policy located here. By accepting the Terms, you are also acknowledging that you have read and are accepting the ECN’s Privacy Policy.

All notices or requests, demands and other communications hereunder shall be in writing, and shall be deemed delivered to the appropriate party upon: (a) personal delivery, if delivered by hand during ordinary business hours; (b) the day of delivery if sent by U.S. Mail, postage pre-paid; (c) the day of signed receipt if sent by certified mail, postage pre-paid, or other nationally recognized carrier, return receipt or signature provided and addressed to the ECN as follows:

Emergency Communications Network, LLC, 780 W. Granada Boulevard, Ormond Beach, FL 32174

ECN reserves the right to modify any portion of these Terms or the Privacy Policy at any time by posting the revised Terms here. Your continued use of any of the Services following any such posting constitutes your acceptance of the revised Terms and Privacy Policy.

User Responsibilities (applicable only to Users)

User access to the Services is password protected, and Users are responsible for maintaining the security of their password at all times. All Users agree to contact ECN immediately upon receipt of any information or knowledge that a User’s account or password has been compromised. ECN will assume that all use of the Services under a User’s password is done with the User’s consent and knowledge and each User shall be responsible for any unauthorized access using its password caused through no fault of ECN. Users further understand and agree that, to use the Services, Users must have access to: a) the internet and/or b) a touch-tone telephone. In no event shall ECN be responsible for providing Users with any equipment or services which are necessary to use the Services.

Each User agrees that it shall not duplicate, translate, modify, copy, printout, disassemble, decompile, create derivative works or otherwise tamper with any of the Services or any software provided for use in the Services. The Users’ use of any of the Services confers no title or ownership in the Services or their underlying technology. Each User understands and agrees that United States copyright laws and international treaty provisions protect the Services. ECN reserves all rights in and to the Services, including but not limited to, the source or object code. No User shall make any ownership, copyright or other intellectual property claims related to the Services. Each User specifically agrees not to make any attempt to gain unauthorized access to any of ECN’s systems, networks, or Services.

All Users agree to provide true, accurate and complete information for any Subscriber information which is entered into the Services, and to maintain the accuracy of such information, and that the provision of such information does not invade on the privacy of any Subscriber. All Users acknowledge and agree that, by entering any contact information into any of the Services, the Subscriber who owns such contact information has expressly authorized the User(s) to enter such information into the Services to receive pre-recorded messages from ECN and the ECN Client with which such User is associated via an automated dialer.

Users have sole and complete responsibility for the content and placement of all messages sent through the Services using the User’s password. Each User accepts full liability for the content of all messages sent through the Services using the User’s password, and agrees to defend and indemnify ECN from any and all losses, damages, liabilities, cost or expenses, direct or indirect, including without limitation reasonable attorneys’ fees, third party claims, and consequential damages, arising from any messages sent through the Services using the User’s password, from a breach of these Terms, or from a failure to comply with any laws applicable to the Services. Each User agrees not to use any of the Services in a way that is unlawful, harassing, libelous, defamatory, threatening, obscene, abusive, or derogatory. Users agree not to transmit any malware, spyware, or other virus through the Services. Users are solely responsible for complying with all laws, and agree to indemnify ECN from any and all damages, demands, claims, liability, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, costs, and expenses, which arise from failure to comply with any laws. Users further agree that the Services are to be used solely as a notification tool and not as a life-saving or property-saving device.

All Users understand and agree that ECN is an independent contractor. Users are not an agent of ECN nor authorized to bind ECN to any obligations. All Users agree that they shall not indicate that ECN has endorsed the content of any message sent through any of the Services without ECN’s express, written and prior permission.

Subscriber Responsibilities (applicable only to Subscribers)

Subscribers shall sign up with an ECN Client(s), be entered into one of the Services by a User or other Subscriber, or subscribe to the Services individually. Each Subscriber agrees to provide true, accurate and complete information when registering for any of the Services, and to maintain the accuracy of such information at all times. Each Subscriber warrants and represents that the provision of such information does not invade on the privacy of any Subscriber. Each Subscriber agrees not to impersonate any person or entity, or misrepresent themselves as such person or entity when registering for any of the Services.

Subscribers understand and agree that their registration into any of the Services shall connect the Subscriber with (i) the Client listed on the subscription page, as well as with any other ECN Client who may send notifications into the geographic location in which such Subscriber’s address falls; and/or (ii) a specific Client list, such that the Subscriber will receive messages from such Client or when the User associated with such Client sends messages to such list. Each Subscriber authorizes ECN to maintain a database of information supplied by the Subscriber or about the Subscriber by any Client or User. Subscribers further understand and agree that Users and ECN have the ability to modify and/or remove Subscriber information and/or Client lists from the Services. Such removal is at the sole discretion of the User and ECN. Subscribers acknowledge and agree that, by registering with any of the Services, they consent to be contacted, using an automated dialer and a pre-recorded message, by ECN and ECN’s Clients.

Each Subscriber understands and agrees that they may request to stop receiving messages through the Service by removing their number through the registration page used to sign up for the Service, by contacting the phone number listed in such message, by contacting their local Client or by contacting ECN at 386-676-0294. Each Subscriber understands and agrees that removing the Subscriber through the registration page may not remove the Subscriber from ECN’s databases if such Subscriber’s information is available through a commercially available database, or later re-entered into the Service through a Client database. Each Subscriber also understands and agrees that a User may remove the Subscriber from the Services without the Subscriber’s knowledge or consent, and that a Subscriber may be removed from the Services if the Client with which they are associated stops receiving the Services from ECN. If you terminate and/or are removed from the Service, you understand that you may no longer receive notifications from ECN, which may include emergency notifications. ECN may also terminate any Client or Subscriber in the event such Client or Subscriber’s use interferes in any way with the Service or otherwise is in breach of these Terms or the Privacy Policy or any other agreement by and between a Client and/or Subscriber and ECN.

Each Subscriber understands and agrees that the Services provided by ECN are subscription based-services which are only available if purchased by a Client or through the CodeRED® Mobile Alert App™. Accordingly, your receipt of notifications is dependent upon the purchase of such Services by a Client or your purchase through the CodeRED® Mobile Alert App™. Your access to notifications sent through ECN’s Services may be terminated at any time, for any reason.

EACH SUBSCRIBER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THE CLIENT IS PROVIDING THE SERVICES AS A PUBLIC SERVICE AND FOR NO COMPENSATION FROM SUBSCRIBER. SUBSCRIBER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THE CLIENT MAY, IN ITS SOLE DISCRETION, TERMINATE THE SERVICES AT ANY TIME. SUBSCRIBER ALSO ACKNOWLEDGES THAT TECHNICAL PROBLEMS OR HUMAN ERROR MAY RESULT IN A FAILURE OF THE SERVICES AT ANY TIME. IN CONSIDERATION OF THESE FACTORS, SUBSCRIBER HEREBY WAIVES, RELEASES, AND HOLDS HARMLESS THE CLIENT, ECN, AND THEIR RESPECTIVE PARENTS AND SUBSIDIARIES, FROM ANY CLAIM ARISING FROM A FAILURE, FOR ANY REASON, TO PROVIDE THE SERVICES AND SUBSCRIBER FURTHER AGREES TO WAIVE, RELEASE, AND HOLD HARMLESS AGAINST ANY CLAIM FOR DIRECT, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING FROM ANY ACT OR OMISSION OF ECN, ECN’S CLIENTS, OR THEIR RESPECTIVE PARENTS AND SUBSIDIARIES, EMPLOYEES, SERVICE PROVIDERS, VOLUNTEERS OR USERS, IN CONNECTION WITH THE CLIENT’S PARTICIPATION IN THE SERVICES.

Each Subscriber understands and agrees that ECN does not have control over telephone service, cellular service and internet service providers which may be necessary for sending messages through the Services, and accordingly, not all calls, texts and other notifications may come through when a User sends a message through the Services, and that such failure shall not be deemed to be the responsibility of ECN, any ECN Client or the User sending such message. Each Subscriber further understands and agrees that the receipt of messages through the Service may cause the Subscriber to incur phone, text, and data charges, and that ECN is in no way responsible for such charges.

In general, telephone, text, email or mobile communications are subject to numerous variables, and as such the dissemination of high volumes of high-speed automated notifications typically cannot reach 100% of all desired recipients. By agreeing to these Terms you, the Subscriber, acknowledge that transmission of information via telephone, text, email or mobile app is reliant upon conditions beyond ECN and ECN’s Clients’; ECN and ECN’s Clients do not warrant that the issuance of a notification from a Client or User will result in a successful connection or in a delivered warning message to the Subscriber. Subscriber acknowledges that the Services are intended to be used as part of a comprehensive general and emergency notification strategy, which includes monitoring of other media as well as the use of common sense. Each Subscriber understands and agrees that the Services are simply a tool which provide the Subscriber with information sent from Users on behalf of Clients, and that the Subscriber cannot rely on his or her status as a Subscriber for emergency notifications nor treat any of the Services as a life-saving or property-saving device. In the event of an emergency, you must place a phone call to 9-1-1 or your local emergency provider.

Each Subscriber understands and agrees that his or her information will be made available for Clients’ use “As Is” and “With All Faults.” ECN does not make any representations or warranties that its Clients will always be able to access Subscriber information for the purpose of sending notifications.

For Subscribers, these Terms, including but not limited to any additional terms for the specific Services to which such Subscriber is subscribed, and the Privacy Policy, constitutes the entire agreement between you and ECN with respect to the Services and supersedes and replaces all prior or contemporaneous understandings or agreements, written or oral, regarding such subject matter. Any waiver of any provision of these Terms or Privacy Policy will be effective only if in writing and signed by ECN.

Additional Terms (applicable based only on Services used)

CodeRED Weather Warning®, Weather Warning and FirstCall® Weather Additional Terms

As a CodeRED Weather Warning®, Weather Warning or FirstCall® Weather (collectively, the “Weather Services”) Subscriber, you agree that you shall not directly or indirectly transmit, broadcast, redistribute, forward or deliver the Weather Services or any part of the data, information, images or other products which constitute the Weather Services to any other person or entity, in any format, or by any means.

 MyDailyCall® Additional Terms

MyDailyCall® Subscribers must have a touchtone telephone with touchtone service and no call blocking services. At time of the automated call, the Subscriber must be able to press the specified digits to acknowledge receipt of the MyDailyCall®. In the event the Subscriber does not press the specified digits, Subscriber’s alternate phone number (if any) will be dialed. In the event there is no alternate phone number, or the specified digits are not pressed on the alternate phone number, the Client will be notified. A User associated with such Client will then determine whether to call Subscriber’s emergency contact or request immediate emergency services for the Subscriber. Subscriber must notify the Client twenty four (24) hours in advance if they will not be available to receive the scheduled calls.

SUBSCRIBER FULLY UNDERSTANDS AND ACKNOWLEDGES THAT EMPLOYEES AND AGENTS OF THE CLIENT MAY BE REQUIRED TO MAKE FORCIBLE ENTRY, OR REQUEST THE AUTHORITIES TO MAKE FORCIBLE ENTRY, TO SUBSCRIBER’S RESIDENCE IF SUBSCRIBER FAILS TO RESPOND TO A MYDAILYCALL®. SUBSCRIBER AGREES TO HOLD HARMLESS THE CLIENT, ANY AUTHORITIES, AND THEIR RESPECTIVE EMPLOYEES, AGENTS AND USERS SHOULD FORCIBLE ENTRY BE REQUIRED IF OTHER REASONABLE MEASURES TO DETERMINE SUBSCRIBER’S STATUS HAVE BEEN EXHAUSTED OR ARE UNAVAILABLE.

MyDailyCall® Subscribers acknowledge that ECN may transfer their Subscriber information to the Client to which they subscribed in order to conduct safety checks on the Subscriber, and that the MyDailyCall® service is intended to be used as part of a comprehensive strategy, which includes periodic live visits to Subscribers as well as the use of common sense.

Code-ED® Additional Terms

Code-ED® Services are designed for schools, school systems and other departments of education. Each individual entering Subscriber information into Code-ED® agrees not to include Subscriber information into Code-ED® for anyone under eighteen (18) years of age unless a parent or guardian, who is over eighteen (18) years of age, who is legally authorized to represent such Subscriber has consented to the Subscriber’s receipt of Code-ED® notifications. Code-ED® Subscribers acknowledge that ECN may transfer their Subscriber information to the Client to which they subscribed to confirm status as a student, parent, employee, or volunteer of the school, school system or other department of education who has purchased the Code-ED® Services.

SmartNotice® Additional Terms

SmartNotice® Subscribers shall be added into the SmartNotice® service: (i) by their employer or local provider for the purpose of: (a) receiving account information regarding services performed by such local provider, such as utility, water, or other business services; (b) receiving pertinent information if they are employed by such local provider; or (ii) by signing up with their employer or local provider to receive account, employment, or other general information. By entering a Subscriber into the system, the individual entering such information represents and warrants that the Subscriber has consented to receive prerecorded SmartNotice® notifications from an automated dialer. SmartNotice® Subscribers acknowledge that ECN may transfer their Subscriber information to the Client to which they subscribed to confirm status as an employee or customer of the business who has purchased the SmartNotice® Services.

Each SmartNotice® User understands and agrees that certain federal, state and local restrictions apply to the use of automated dialing and pre-recorded messages, and that such restrictions may prohibit the collection of debts using such devices absent the prior, express, consent of the called party. Each User agrees to be bound by all such applicable restrictions and to use SmartNotice® in compliance with all laws and regulations, in addition to all other requirements in ECN’s Privacy Policy and Terms.
