Terms and Conditions

 

Please read these Terms and Conditions carefully which apply to your use of the One Scream App and set out your responsibilities and obligations.

 

Background

These terms and conditions provide information about One Scream Limited, the One Scream mobile phone application service (the "App") and set out the terms on which we agree to provide the App service ("Terms and Conditions").  

When we refer to "we", "us" or "our" or "One Scream", we mean One Scream Limited, a company incorporated at 16 Charles II Street, London SW1Y 4NW, (company number 09629220).

When we refer to "you", "your" or the "User" we mean the individual subscribing to the App.  Together "us" and "you" may be referred to as the "parties", or individually the "party". 

 

Purpose of the App

The App is a hands-free, voice activated mobile phone application that automatically makes contact with your chosen contact(s) when triggered by your panic scream, provided that you do not confirm your safety within 12 seconds of creating the alert.  If a panic scream triggers an alert, the App will: (1) send an automated text message to your chosen contact(s) containing details of your name and location, and (2) attempt to connect your mobile phone  to that chosen contact on an open phone line.

For these purposes, you will be asked by the App to select at least one contact and to provide their mobile phone number(s). You can choose to provide mobile phone numbers of up to 3 contacts. The order in which you input these contacts’ numbers on the App will determine the order that those individuals are contacted if you trigger an alert. For example, if you provide details of 3 contacts, A, B and C, the App will: (1) send an automated text message, and (2) attempt to make a phone call to contact A in the first instance. If contact A does not answer the call, the App will repeat steps (1) and (2) in respect of contact B, and then contact C.

Please note, before you provide us with your chosen contact(s)’ details you must obtain consent from them: (1) to provide us with their name and mobile phone number, and (2) for them to be your chosen contact.

 

Important App information

The App is not designed to serve as an alternative to the emergency services. If you have an emergency, or important time-sensitive crime information, medical information or other important information you must communicate this information by the emergency service telephone line in the usual manner.

You should be aware when using the App that there are several variables that can interfere with the App functioning, such as network coverage or failure which may affect the functioning of the App.  Also, the App makes use of an algorithm and although we have subjected the algorithm to extensive testing, we cannot warrant that it will work perfectly in all circumstances, especially those where there are other background screaming noises such as at a concert or theme park.  You should be aware that, without limitation, the App will not function when your mobile phone is switched off, may not function correctly when your voice is muffled or affected by alcohol or under the influence of drugs or where you are otherwise intoxicated, and will not function when you are making a call from your mobile phone or when other apps are using the microphone. Please make sure you have other arrangements in place, such as sharing your route and making others aware of where you are at any given time.

One Scream does not, expressly or impliedly, warrant or represent in any manner whatsoever that use of the App will deter the occurrence of an unlawful act, nor does One Scream make any warranty or representation that the User’s chosen contacts will respond to any contact made through the App.

 

How a contract is formed between us

To subscribe to the App, you must use a mobile telephone with internet connection to download and install the App.  The App is available for download on iOS from the Apple App Store. Follow the set-up instructions inside the App, or go to Onescream.com for more information.  

When you make a request to download and access the App you will be asked to confirm that you accept these Terms and Conditions.  By clicking to accept you confirm that you:

(ii)            (ii) agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions.

Account details

You agree to provide accurate, current and complete information during the registration process and to update such information as required.  One Scream reserves the right to suspend or terminate your account if any information provided during the registration process or thereafter proves to be inaccurate, not current or incomplete.

The App uses various technologies to determine your location, including your IP address, your GPS and other sensors.

One Scream will not be liable to you or to any other person in the event that all or any part of the App is discontinued, modified or changed in any way.  One Scream does not warrant that the App will always be available, be uninterrupted, error-free, or free of viruses or other harmful components.

 

Additional costs

Intellectual property

The past, present and future content of the App, including, without limitation, software graphics, text, images, audio, designs, databases and the trademarks, logos, trade names, service marks and trade identities, any and all copyright material (including source and object code) and all other materials related to the App, including without limitation, the 'look and feel' of the App (collectively, "Content") are protected by applicable copyrights, trademark rights, database rights and other proprietary (including, but not limited to, intellectual property) rights and are the property of One Scream or its licensors.  Delivery of the App shall not transfer to you any right other than to use the App for the stated period for your own personal use.

Liability

While One Scream makes all reasonable efforts to provide the App, One Scream will not be liable for any failure to provide those services, in part or in full, for example, due to background noise, phone network failures or, in the case of mobile networks, where you are not in an area of mobile coverage.

The App is provided “as is” and on an “as available” basis with no representation, warranty, guarantee or agreement of any kind as to its functionality or the contents.  One Scream cannot guarantee that you can access the App with every mobile device or that no damage will occur to your mobile device while installing and/or using the App. One Scream is not responsible for any loss you may incur as a result of this.  You should be aware that One Scream may not function in conjunction with other applications running on your mobile device. 

One Scream disclaims all warranties and conditions with respect to the App, including all implied warranties or conditions of merchantability, fitness of purpose, title or non-infringement. One Scream neither represents nor warrants that the App will prevent any loss, damage or injury to person or property, will function at a desired time, or provide any personal protection in any circumstance.

You acknowledge that your use of the App is at your sole risk, that the App is not designed or guaranteed to prevent any loss or injury and that you are solely responsible for taking appropriate safety precautions. 

 

Limitation of Liability

Nothing in these Terms and Conditions shall be deemed to limit the liability of you or One Scream for: (a) death or personal injury caused by negligence; (b) fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; (c) breach of the terms implied by sections 12, 13, 14 and 15 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979; (d) liability for defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987; or (e) any other liability that cannot be excluded or limited by applicable law.

You acknowledge and agree that, subject to the preceding paragraph above and to the maximum extent permitted by law, the entire risk arising out of your access to and use of the App remains with you. Neither One Scream nor any other person or entity involved in creating, producing, or delivering the App will be liable for any incidental, special, exemplary or consequential damages, including any lost profits, sales, business or revenue, loss of business opportunity, loss of anticipated savings, loss or corruption of data, information or software, loss of goodwill, service interruption, computer damage or system failure or the cost of substitute products or services arising out of or in connection with these Terms and Conditions or from the use of or inability to use the App, whether based on warranty, contract, tort (including negligence), product liability or any other legal theory, and whether or not One Scream has been informed of the possibility of such damage, even if a limited remedy set forth herein is found to have failed of its essential purpose.

 

Termination

One Scream may terminate provision of the App to you and terminate access to your account if you no longer accept these Terms and Conditions, refuse to accept any changes to these Terms and Conditions or if we believe that you have not complied with these Terms and Conditions.  You understand and agree that One Scream will determine your compliance with these Terms and Conditions in its sole discretion.

One Scream retains the right at its sole discretion to change, edit, suspend, delete or cancel its provision of the App or any part of the App including the Communication Services and/or change the terms that govern use of the App at any time without notice and without liability to you:

a)     if required by law;

b)     if suspension is necessary for the purposes of (routine or emergency) maintenance;

c)     for security or technical reasons;

d)    as a result of your mobile provider's changes, deletion, cancellation or revocation of any required approvals for the Apple app store and/or Android device app store (including without limitation Google or Apple App stores); or

e)     due to an event beyond One Scream's reasonable control.

One Scream shall use all reasonable endeavours, where permitted by applicable law, to give you notice of such suspension or termination.  One Scream has no liability to you and/or any third party resulting from One Scream’s suspension or termination of the App.

 

Consequences of termination

Upon termination for whatever reason, you shall stop using the App immediately.  You acknowledge that in the event of termination of the App and/or your account, we have no duty to you or to any third parties.

You should be aware that if you request termination of the App, it will result in deactivation, but not necessarily deletion of your account.  One Scream reserves the right to delete, or to not delete, your account at its sole discretion.

Following termination of these Terms and Conditions, any limitations on One Scream’s liability and indemnification by you shall survive termination and continue to apply.
