Our Responsibility for Loss or Damage
This clause sets out our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you arising out of or in connection with the app.
The LiveRide and SafeRide features of the app require you to:
· Access the Premium Services;
· Enable and configure the LiveRide or SafeRide features;
· Select friends or family to be your “Nominated Contacts”;
· Ensure your Nominated Contacts details are up to date.
The purpose of the LiveRide feature, is to allow you to share your location in real time with your Nominated Contacts. The purpose of the SafeRide feature is to contact your Nominated Contacts if you have had an accident.
The LiveRide feature operates by showing your up to date location when the phone has a GPS signal, and the relevant location services are enabled.
The SafeRide feature operates by triggering an audible alarm if the App does not detect movement for a specified period of time (this time period can be altered during the configuration of the SafeRide feature), if you do not disable the alarm by tapping ‘not an emergency’ the App will automatically send a text message to your Nominated Contacts. This means that the App will not send a notification to your Nominated Contacts if for example you are injured but still moving or the ‘not an emergency’ button is accidentally tapped.
It should be noted that both the LiveRide and SafeRide features may not function where the app has poor GPS signal, low battery, poor network signal, or where Nominated Contacts have had their phone numbers incorrectly saved (e.g. a relevant country code has not been entered) or suffers any other issues which may impact the accuracy or function of these features.
Additionally it should be noted that horse-riding is a dangerous sport which carries certain inherent and significant risks including property damage, bodily injury or death. While the LiveRide and SafeRide features work as set out above, the LiveRide and SafeRide features are not a substitute for taking the usual safety precautions associated with riding, such as wearing a helmet, back protector, being visible on the road, telling friends and family where you will be riding and how long for and riding within your and your horse’s capabilities.
Explanation of the administration features
If you access the Premium Services you will also be able to access tools to assist with administration in connection with your horse, including but not limited to reminders for veterinary treatments. While this is intended to assist you, given the inherent limitations in electronic tools of this king e.g. the App will not function if your phone has no battery or poor network signal, dates may reasonably easily be inadvertently changed, the administrative features are not a substitutes for other methods of ensuring the administration in connection with your horse is carried out, for example by separately diarising particular events.
We may not be responsible to you if you fail to take into account the features and operation of the app, and the additional precautions we advise you to take, as set out above.
In respect of your use of the App we are not responsible for:
· any losses that were not foreseeable to both parties when the App was downloaded (i.e. not an obvious consequence of our breach, or not contemplated by you and us at that time);
· any losses that were not caused by any breach of our legal obligations to you; or
· any business losses, or losses that you suffer other than in your capacity as a consumer.
In respect of your use of the App you expressly agree to release Huufe, its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, representatives, employees, partners and licensors (the “released parties”) from any and all liability for losses (whether direct, indirect, special, consequential or other) in connection with your activities and/or use of the services, and promise not to sue the released parties for any claims, actions, injuries, damages, or losses associated with such use.
We do not guarantee that our Services will be secure or free from bugs or viruses.
You are responsible for configuring your information technology, computer programs and platform to access our Services. You should use your own virus protection software.
You must not misuse our Services by knowingly introducing viruses, trojans, worms, logic bombs or other material that is malicious or technologically harmful. You must not attempt to gain unauthorised access to our Services, the server on which our Services are stored or any server, computer or database connected to our Services. You must not attack our Services via a denial-of-service attack or a distributed denial-of service attack. By breaching this provision, you would commit a criminal offence under the applicable laws. We will report any such breach to the relevant law enforcement authorities and we will co-operate with those authorities by disclosing your identity to them. In the event of such a breach, your right to use our Services will cease immediately.
These Terms, their subject matter and their formation, are governed by English law.
