Date of Last Revision: January 30, 2018

These Terms of Use (the "Terms") describe the terms under which you may access and use the mobile and web-based messaging and telecommunication services (the "Services") provided by RMS Software, Inc. ("RMS")

The Services are a set of applications accessed through the web or mobile devices, the features of the Services vary based on which applications are licensed by RMS to various companies, organizations, schools and government entities (“Clients”) and to which you are granted access and for which you register. These Terms may be modified by RMS at any time without prior notice. Changes to the Terms will be posted on this page, and this page will indicate at the top the date these Terms were last revised. You agree to be bound by any such modifications once they are posted on this web site (the "Site"), and your continued registration to use, or use of, the Services following any such posting constitutes your acceptance of such modifications.

PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF USE CAREFULLY AS THEY CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, REMEDIES AND OBLIGATIONS.

Messaging

By registering for this Service you will periodically receive text messages. The frequency of these messages will depend on how you use this Service, and how frequently the Client sends messages through this Service. Message and data rates may apply.

Alerts sent via SMS may not be delivered to you if your phone is not in range of a transmission site, or if sufficient network capacity is not available at a particular time. Even within a coverage area, factors beyond a carrier’s control may interfere with message delivery, including the customer's equipment, terrain, proximity to buildings, foliage, and weather. You acknowledge that urgent alerts may not be timely received and that carriers do not guarantee that alerts will be delivered.

Carriers are not responsible for delayed or undelivered messages.

Eligibility; Term

You must be eighteen (18) years of age or older to register for the Services and to use the RMS applications and Services. If you are under the age of 18, then an adult must also agree to these Terms with you or on your behalf. Use of the Services and the RMS applications and Services is void where prohibited. Any registration by, use of or access to the Site or the Services by anyone under 13 is unauthorized, unlicensed and in violation of these Terms. You are responsible for obtaining access to the Services and acknowledge that such access may involve third party fees (such as Internet service provider, SMS, mobile data usage or other airtime charges). You are responsible for any such fees and any and all equipment necessary to access the Services. By agreeing to these Terms or by using the Services, the Site and the RMS applications and Services, you represent and warrant that you have the right, authority, and capacity to enter into these Terms and to abide by all of the terms and conditions hereof. These Terms shall remain in full force and effect until your registration is terminated. RMS, at its sole discretion, may restrict or terminate your use of the Services for any reason, at any time. If RMS restricts or terminates your use of the Services because you have breached these Terms, you shall remain obligated under these Terms.

Registration

As part of the registration process, you or, with your consent, the Client must provide certain data and personal information (such as name, address, telephone number, account number, equipment identifiers, and Internet Protocol address that you or the Client makes available to RMS) about you (collectively, "PI"). You acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for the accuracy and completeness of your PI, whether provided to RMS by you or by the Client, and that the effectiveness of the Services will depend in part upon the accuracy and completeness of your PI. You agree to (a) provide to RMS and the Client accurate, current and complete PI and (b) maintain and promptly update such PI to keep it accurate, current and complete. You further agree that RMS or the Client may, but is not obligated to, contact you from time to time through the Services or otherwise to verify the accuracy and completeness of your PI.

You will utilize a password that will enable you to access the Services. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password, and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur through the use of your password. You agree to immediately notify RMS of any unauthorized use of your password or any other breach of security. You agree that the Client (if applicable), RMS or the wireless carrier providing access to the Services shall not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the foregoing.

You agree that RMS shall have the right to suspend or remove any member who violates these Terms or any such policy at any time and without advanced notice to the member.
