1. OVERVIEW, ELIGIBILITY, CUSTOMER SERVICE, TERM AND TERMINATION
(a) Overview and Relation to Other Agreements. These Terms govern your use of the Services and Products. Your purchase of any Product is governed by the Terms & Conditions of Sale and is subject to the limited warranty provided with that Product. The software embedded in the Product (and any updates thereto) (“Product Software”) is licensed and governed by the applicable end user license agreement (“EULA”). Certain features of the Services may be subject to additional guidelines, terms, or rules, which will be posted on the Services in connection with such features. All additional guidelines, terms, or rules, and the Website Privacy Notice ("Website Privacy Notice"), and the Privacy Statement (“Privacy Statement”), are incorporated by reference into these Terms, and you are agreeing to accept and abide by them by using the Services and Products.
(i) You may use the Services and Products only if you have the legal capacity to form a binding agreement with us (except subject to the provisions of clause (1)(b)(ii) below), you accept these Terms by accessing or using the Services or Products, and only if you are in compliance with these Terms and all applicable local, state/provincial, national and international laws, rules, and regulations. Only individuals age 18 and older are permitted to act as owners of Accounts.
(ii) If you are an Authorized User, you represent and warrant that you are over the age of 13 (or equivalent minimum age in the jurisdiction where you reside), and in the event you are between the age of 13 (or equivalent minimum age in the jurisdiction where you reside) and the age of majority in the jurisdiction where you reside, that you will only use the Services and Products with the permission of a parent or legal guardian who agrees to be bound by these Terms. Any use or access to the Services and Products by individuals under the age of 13 (or equivalent minimum age in the jurisdiction where you reside) without a parent’s or legal guardian’s permission is strictly prohibited and is a violation of these Terms. The Services and Products are not available to any users previously prohibited from using the Services and Products by Cooper Lighting.
(c) Customer Service. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the Products, the Services, or these Terms, please contact Cooper Lighting. You understand and agree that customer service and customer care and support offered and provided by Cooper Lighting is not a 911 service or dispatch center, an emergency service provider or dispatch service, or a lifesaving solution for people at risk in their home or otherwise. Please do not contact customer service or any customer care and support offered by Cooper Lighting with any life/safety emergency, medical emergency, or any other emergency. If you have any such emergency, you should immediately contact the police, fire department, 911 or appropriate emergency response service.
(d) Term and Termination. These terms will remain in full force and effect so long as you continue to access or use the Services or Products, or until terminated in accordance with these Terms. At any time, Cooper Lighting may (i) suspend or terminate your right to access or use the Services, (ii) terminate these Terms with respect to you if Cooper Lighting in good faith believes that that you have used the Services or Products in violation of these Terms, including any incorporated guidelines, terms or rules. If you transfer a Product to a new owner, your right to use the Services with respect to that Product automatically terminates, and the new owner will have no right to use the Product or Services under your Account (as described below) and will need to register for a separate Account with Cooper Lighting and accept these Terms.
(e) Effect of Termination. Upon termination of these Terms, your Account and your right to use the Services will automatically terminate.
(a) When you install Halo Home System devices, you will be directed to download the Mobile App from the app store that corresponds to your particular mobile device (i.e., Apple, Google, etc.). When you open the Mobile App, you will be asked to register with Cooper Lighting and establish an account for your Halo Home System devices. Establishing an account requires that you provide to Cooper Lighting your designated email address and that you select and enter a password. After entering your email address and password, you will be asked for your name. The Mobile App will then request permission to send you notifications and to allow Halo Home to access your locations while using the Mobile App. You may withhold your consent to receive notifications or to allow Halo Home to access your location, but doing so may impact your ability to fully utilize your Halo Home System devices including allowing the Halo Home System devices to set sunset/sunrise scheduling (which is dependent upon your location). After registering using the Mobile App, you will be sent a verification email to the email address you provided for the purpose of verifying your account ID. You will be instructed to click on the link in the verification email to complete the registration process and to continue with your Halo Home experience. In addition to the information collected in the registration process described above, once you have registered, we may ask you for additional information to create your Halo Home user profile such as your telephone number, address, and in some cases, credit card or other billing information for additional services you may order, all of which will be stored with a third party with which we have a business relationship. Answering these questions allows us to establish and maintain your user account for the Halo Home System devices that you have purchased and helps us to set up and maintain a lighting program customized to your preferences. After you complete the registration process, your account registration allows you to provide certain additional basic profile information, such as your profile photo. Names and profile photos may be shown to others in connection with the Halo Home services. You should only use photos you are willing to make public.
(b) You represent and warrant that: (i) all required information you submit is truthful and accurate; (ii) you will maintain the accuracy of such information; and (iii) your use of the Services and Products will not violate any U.S. or other applicable law or regulation (e.g., you are not located in an embargoed country or are not listed as a prohibited or restricted party under applicable export control laws and regulations). You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Account login information and for all activities that occur under your Account. You agree to maintain your password securely to prevent others from gaining access without your permission. You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use, or suspected unauthorized use, of your Account or any other breach of security. We are not liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the above requirements.
(c) The individual who creates an Account is the “owner” of that Account and is the owner of the Products associated with that Account. Individuals who are authorized to access or otherwise provided access by the owner to an owner’s Products are “Authorized Users.” Authorized Users may have the ability to use the Services to monitor and control the Products (for example, an Authorized User can change your lighting schedule). Authorized Users are responsible for their own actions in connection with the Products and Services, but the owner of the applicable Products also hereby agrees to be fully responsible for all actions taken by Authorized Users relating to the owner’s Products, the Services and the owner’s Account. If you are an owner who invites or enables an Authorized User, you acknowledge and agree that such Authorized User may subsequently invite or enable other Authorized Users with the same access and ability to use your Products and to use the Services set out above. As a result, if you are an owner of Products, you should authorize only those individuals that you trust to access your Account, your Products, and the Services.
3. ACCESS TO SERVICES
(a) Access and Use. Subject to these Terms, Cooper Lighting grants you a non-transferable, non-exclusive, right (without the right to sublicense) to access and use the Services by (i) using the Web-based Services in connection with registering and establishing a Halo Home account and user profile, and for the purpose of, controlling and monitoring the Products you own or are authorized to control and monitor or otherwise accessing a service explicitly provided by Cooper Lighting for your use (the “Permitted Purpose”), and (ii) installing and using the Mobile App solely on your own handheld mobile device (e.g., iPhone, iPad, or Android smartphone) and solely for the Permitted Purpose.
(b) To connect your Product to our services, or to access your Product over the Internet from a computer, a smartphone or a tablet, you will need to connect your Product to your Wi-Fi network. During setup, the Product will ask for your Wi-Fi network name (SSID) and password to connect to the Internet. It will save this information on the device, along with your IP address, so that you can access it and control it from your computer, smartphone or tablet, and so that it can communicate with our servers and download software updates. Once connected to your Wi-Fi network, your Product regularly sends the data described in the Privacy Statement (excluding your Wi-Fi password) to us so that we can provide you with services.
(c) Automatic Software Updates. Cooper Lighting may from time to time develop patches, bug fixes, updates, upgrades and other modifications to improve the performance of the Services and/or the Product Software (“Updates”).

If you do not terminate a previously created Account, you will receive Updates automatically. You acknowledge that you may be required to install Updates to use the Services and the Products and you agree to promptly install any Updates Cooper Lighting provides.

(c) Reliability of Services. You acknowledge that the Services, including remote access and mobile notifications, are not error-free or 100% reliable and 100% available.

You understand that Service Interruptions may result in the Services being unreliable or unavailable for the duration of the Service Interruption. We cannot and do not guarantee that you will receive notifications in any given time or at all. YOU AGREE THAT YOU WILL NOT RELY ON THE SERVICES FOR ANY LIFE SAFETY OR CRITICAL PURPOSES.
