Terms of Service
The Services cannot be provided, and the agreement described in these Terms of Service cannot be performed, without our processing of data about you. Processing of the data you share with us, is essential to the Services which we provide and a necessary part of our performance of the agreement we have with you.
The purpose of the Services is to give you a better way to understand and manage your electricity consumption. By creating an account with us and installing our hardware solutions in your home or work place, we aim to give you the ability to access and analyze your electricity usage data via the Services. These Terms set out our respective rights and obligations in relation to your usage of the Services.
To use the Services, you must create an account. You agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself (“User Data”), and (b) maintain and promptly update the User Data. You agree that we may use your User Data to provide Services that you access or use and as otherwise set forth in these Terms. If you provide any User Data that is inaccurate or not current, or we have reasonable grounds to suspect that such User Data is inaccurate or not current, we have the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse current or future use of the Services.
You accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or from your computer and mobile devices. We endeavour to use reasonable security measures to protect against unauthorized access to your account. We cannot, however, guarantee absolute security of your account, your Content (as defined below), or the personal information you provide, and we cannot promise that our security measures will prevent third parties from illegally accessing the Services or its contents. You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your account, or any other breach of security, and confirm that you understand all risks of unauthorized access to User Data and any other information or content you provide to us.
You may create your account via a third-party network, such as Apple, Facebook, or Google. If you do so, you hereby authorize us to pre-populate the relevant information fields of your account, and to use such third-party credentials to log you into your account. If you connect your account to a third-party network, you agree to comply with the terms and conditions and policies applicable to such third party.
Content and Conduct
You own the information, data, text, or other materials you make available in connection with your use of the Services (“Content”). You grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license (i) to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, and display any Content and any name or username that you use in connection with the Services, including activities related to the Services that we may undertake outside the Website and our mobile applications (such as marketing activities in different media formats and channels), (ii) to share any Content in an anonymized format with our third party affiliates for commercial, research or other purposes, and (iii) to share Content related to any appliance (including but not limited to household appliances of all kinds), whenever you have agreed to identify such appliance, when you use the Services with the relevant brand owner for commercial or research purposes of such brand (including as the case may be to provide you with special offers). Your agreement in the preceding sentence shall in all cases be rendered without compensation to you. This license ends when you delete your Content or your account. You grant us at all times the right to share your identifiable (non-anonymized) Content with third parties whenever you have provided your consent for us to do so.
You understand that you are entirely responsible for all Content that you make available via the Services. We may, in our sole discretion, screen, monitor, hide, refuse or remove any Content, or remove any Content that violates the Terms or is otherwise objectionable. Under no circumstances will we be liable in any way for any Content or the content of any derivative works including but not limited to analysis and recommendations generated by us (“Derivative Works”). This means that we will not be liable for any errors or omissions in any Content or Derivative Works, or any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any Content or Derivative Works made available on the Services. You agree to bear all risks associated with the use of any Content or Derivative Works made available in connection with the Services, including any reliance on the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of such Content.

Our failure to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
