Terms of Service
Last Updated: 4/30/2014
Welcome to Devicescape Software, Inc. (“Devicescape”, “our” or “we”). We make available a curated Wi-Fi hotspot-based service that we call the Curator Service (“Curator Service”). A high-level description of the Curator Service is provided under “Description of Curator Service” below and additional information regarding the Curator Service may be found on our website located at www.devicescape.com (the “Devicescape Site”). We also make available a Wi-Fi hotspot-related proximity marketing service that we call PopWiFi (“PopWiFi”). A high-level description of PopWiFi is provided under “Description of PopWiFi” below and additional information regarding PopWiFi may be found on our website located at www.popwifi.com (the “PopWiFi Site”).
Agreement to Terms
Devicescape is willing to allow you to access and use the Services only upon the condition that you agree to be bound by the Terms. To indicate that you agree to be bound by these Terms, click on “Accept” or “I Agree” or on a similar prompt that is displayed. To indicate that you don’t agree to be bound by these Terms, click on “Reject” or “Decline” or on a similar prompt that is displayed, in which case activation of the Curator Client will stop. If you are accessing and using the Services on behalf of a company (such as your employer) or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that company or other legal entity to these Terms. In that case, “you” and “your” will refer to that company or other legal entity. Upon your acceptance of these Terms the Services will work automatically and you will be deemed a “Curator Client Subscriber”.
Changes to Terms or Services
We may modify the Terms at any time, in our sole discretion. If we do so, we’ll let you know either by posting the modified Terms on the Devicescape Site or the PopWiFi Site, as applicable, or through other communications, such as sending a message to you via the Curator Client. If you set your mobile device not to receive messages, if we modify the Terms we will temporarily override your setting to enable you to receive our message and, once we confirm that you have received our message, we will restore your original setting. It’s important that you review the modified Terms because if you continue to use the Services after we’ve let you know that the Terms have been modified, you are indicating to us that you agree to be bound by the modified Terms. If you don’t agree to be bound by the modified Terms then you may no longer use the Services. Because our Services are evolving over time we may change or discontinue all or any part of the Services, at any time and without notice, at our sole discretion.
Who May Use the Services
You may use the Services only if you are 18 years or older and capable of forming a binding contract with Devicescape and are not barred from using the Services under applicable law.
When you access the Curator Service for the first time the Curator Service will register your mobile device by collecting and storing on Devicescape’s server the mobile device’s phone number (MDN), hardware identifier (IMEI/MEID) and other hardware-specific data. In addition, the Curator Service will assign a unique universal identification number to your mobile device (a “UUID”) and store the UUID on your device. The UUID enables Devicescape to associate or track the device and its interactions with our Services and is necessary for our Services to function.
Description of Curator Service
Curated Virtual Network
The primary feature of the Curator Service enables users of mobile devices to have their devices automatically connect to a network of publicly available curated Wi-Fi hotspots maintained by Devicescape (the “Curated Virtual Network”). In order to have a mobile device automatically connect to the Curated Virtual Network, the Curator Client must be installed and activated on your mobile device. When you purchased your mobile device the Curator Client may have been pre-installed. If the Curator Client was not pre-installed you can download it from an app store or distribution platform such as Google Play or the Amazon App Store. In either case, the Curator Client will be activated when you accept these Terms in accordance with the provision “Agreement to Terms” above. In addition to this automatic connection feature, the Curator Service includes features that enable you to manage your access to and use of Wi-Fi-by configuring how your mobile device detects and connects to Wi-Fi hotspot networks. More detailed Information regarding these features may be found on the Devicescape Site.
Connections to Account-free Wi-Fi Providers
Some Wi-Fi providers offer access to their Wi-Fi hotspot network without requiring you to create an account with them (each, an “Account-free Wi-Fi Provider”), but certain Account-free Wi-Fi Providers may require you to agree to their end user license agreement or terms of service. You acknowledge and agree that in some instances you may be unable to view the Account-free Wi-Fi Provider’s end user license agreement or terms of service and in some instances the Account-free Wi-Fi provider may not have an end user license agreement or terms of service. If you wish to connect to the Wi-Fi hotspot network of an Account-free Wi-Fi Provider, you hereby authorize Devicescape to accept the Account-free Wi-Fi Provider’s end user license agreement or terms of service on your behalf, if any, but that you will be solely responsible for complying with any such end user license agreement or terms of service, as applicable.
Account-free Wi-Fi Providers with Offline Terms
Certain Account-free Wi-Fi Providers may have a terms of service that is provided “off-line”, e.g., by means of a physical sign or documentation that is posted in the Account-free Wi-Fi Provider’s venue or furnished by the Account-free Wi-Fi Provider to customers who connect (or request information regarding connecting) to the Account-free Wi-Fi Provider’s hotspot network (such physical sign or documentation, the “Off-line Terms”). Devicescape makes no representation regarding whether any such Off-line Terms apply, and you acknowledge and agree that it is your sole responsibility to identify whether any such Off-line Terms apply to your use of the Curator Service, and to comply with any such Off-line Terms.
Account-free Wi-Fi Providers that Request Email Address
As a condition to connecting to their Wi-Fi hotspot network, certain Account-free Wi-Fi Providers may request the Curator Service to provide a limited amount of information regarding you, such as your name and your email address. In that event, the Curator Service may provide the Account-free Wi-Fi Provider with Devicescape’s name and email address but will not provide your name or email address. You acknowledge and agree that the Curator Service will not enable you to establish a connection with any Account-free Wi-Fi Provider hotspot network that requires verification of the email address.
Connections to Account-based Wi-Fi Providers
Some Wi-Fi providers require you to have an account with them to access to their Wi-Fi hotspot network (each, an “Account-based Wi-Fi Provider”). Account-based Wi-Fi Providers typically are commercial network operators but may also include free and community providers. If you wish to connect to the Wi-Fi hotspot network of an Account-based Wi-Fi Provider, you may need to obtain login credentials (e.g., a user ID and password) from the Account-based Wi-Fi Provider. You may also be required to agree to an Account-based Wi-Fi Provider’s end user license agreement or terms of service. If you would like to have Devicescape automatically attempt to connect you to the Wi-Fi hotspot network of an Account-based Wi-Fi Provider, after you have acquired such login credentials from an Account-based Wi-Fi Provider and/or first agreed to the Account-based Wi-Fi Provider’s end user license agreement or terms of service, as applicable, you will provide such login credentials to Devicescape. Devicescape will store your login credentials on Devicescape’s server and may automatically attempt to connect to the Wi-Fi hotspot network of such Account-based Wi-Fi Provider when you are in the vicinity of such hotspot network. You hereby authorize Devicescape to accept the Account-based Wi-Fi Provider’s end user license agreement or terms of service on your behalf, but that you will be solely responsible for complying with any such end user license agreement or terms of service, as applicable.
Certain Terms Applicable to Account free Wi-Fi Providers and Account-based Wi-Fi Providers
Acknowledgement Regarding Inability to Access Emergency Services
You acknowledge and agree that the Services may enable a variety of classes of wireless devices to connect to Wi-Fi hotspot networks. Such classes may include devices that provide voice services over the Internet similar to those that are provided to users of conventional mobile phone or fixed-line telephones networks (such devices, “VoIP Phones”). If you use a VoIP Phone in connection with the Services you assume all risks and liability arising from any inability to connect to such emergency services such as 911.
Acknowledgement Regarding Responsibility for Certain Charges
You acknowledge that one of the features of the Curator Service is to continually check the quality of the different networks to which you have connected or to which you may be able to connect to ensure that you are connected to the network that provides the best service. Such networks may include both cellular networks and Wi-Fi hotspot networks. If the Curator Service determines that the network to which you are connected is not providing you with a sufficient quality of service the Curator Service may disconnect you from such network and connect you to an available cellular network or Wi-Fi hotspot network, as applicable. If the Curator Service connects you to an available cellular network, you will be solely responsible for any charges for which you are billed by the operator of such cellular network, including per-minute, roaming or premium charges, as well as any applicable taxes. In no event will Devicescape be responsible for any such charges or taxes. The Curator Service may also connect you to a Wi-Fi hotspot network or a cellular network based on policies set by you, the operator or provider of such network or Devicescape.
Description of PopWiFi
PopWiFi enables owners of small and mid-sized venues such as cafes, restaurants, bakeries, hair salons, hotels and theaters, that offer free Wi-Fi to their customers (a “Venue Owner”) to send communications in the form of electronic notifications, messages, or other such end user media to customers who access and use the Venue Owner’s Wi-Fi hotspot network by means of the Curator Client. As a Curator Client Subscriber, you will have access to all the features of PopWiFi that any such Venue Owner makes available to Curator Client Subscribers who connect to and use the Venue Owner’s Wi-Fi hotspot network.

Agreement to Arbitrate
You and Devicescape agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, or validity thereof or the use of the Services (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right: (i) to bring an individual action in small claims court and (ii) to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights (the action described in the foregoing clause (ii), an “IP Protection Action”). The exclusive jurisdiction and venue of any IP Protection Action will be the state and federal courts located in the Northern District of California and each of the parties hereto waives any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts. You acknowledge and agree that you and Devicescape are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and Devicescape otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this “Dispute Resolution” section will survive any termination of these Terms.
The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section. (The AAA Rules are available atwww.adr.org/arb_med or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Section.
A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. (The AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration at http://www.adr.org/aaa/ShowPDF?doc=ADRSTG_004175and a separate form for California residents at http://www.adr.org/aaa/ShowPDF?doc=ADRSTG_015822.) The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law and will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s roster of arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.
Arbitration Location and Procedure
Unless you and Devicescape otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be condutcted solely on the basis of the documents that you and Devicescape submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.
The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award of damages must be consistent with the terms of the “Limitation of Liability” section above as to the types and amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law. Devicescape will not seek, and hereby waives all rights it may have under applicable law to recover, attorneys’ fees and expenses if it prevails in arbitration.
Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules. However, if your claim for damages does not exceed $75,000, Devicescape will pay all such fees unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)).
Notwithstanding the provisions of the “Changes to Terms or Services” section above, if Devicescape changes this “Dispute Resolution” section after the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice (including by email email@example.com within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Last Updated” date above or in the date of Devicescape’s notice to you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and Devicescape in accordance with the provisions of this “Dispute Resolution” section as of the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).
These Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between Devicescape and you regarding the Services, and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between Devicescape and you regarding the Services. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without Devicescape’s prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null and of no effect. Devicescape may freely assign or transfer these Terms without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors, and permitted assigns. Any notices or other communications provided by Devicescape under these Terms, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be given: (i) by posting to the Devicescape Site; or (ii) by a message sent by Devicescape to you via the Curator Client.
Devicescape’s failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of those rights. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Devicescape. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise.
If you have any questions about these Terms or the Services please contact Devicescape at firstname.lastname@example.org, +1 (650) 249-6565, 1250 Bayhill Drive, San Bruno, California 94066.

As a result, if we go out of business or enter bankruptcy or if we are acquired as a result of a transaction such as a merger, acquisition or asset sale, your PII may be disclosed or transferred to the third-party acquirer in connection with the transaction.Information Disclosed for Our Protection and the Protection of Others. It is our policy to protect you from having your privacy violated through abuse of the legal systems, whether by individuals, entities, or government, and to contest claims that we believe to be invalid under applicable law. However, it is also our policy to cooperate with government and law enforcement officials and private parties. Accordingly, we reserve the right to disclose any information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary: (i) to satisfy or comply with any applicable law, regulation or legal process or to respond to lawful requests, including subpoenas, warrants or court orders; (ii) to protect our property, rights and safety and the rights, property and safety of third parties or the public in general; and (iv) to prevent or stop activity we consider to be illegal or unethical.
