1. What is ePACT?
The Service enables registered users of the Service (“End Users”) to build support networks of relatives, friends and organizations, store and exchange critical information, and access communication tools for greater interaction and preparation in the event of an Emergency. The Service also enables authorized administrators within an organization (“Organizational Users”) to store and access critical information of End Users who have shared that information with the organization for use in an Emergency as further described in Section 12. Collectively, End Users and Organizational Users constitute “ePACT Users”)
“Emergencies” may include:
Any event that presents a reasonable health or safety risk to the individual exclusively or as part of a collective
A sudden decline in the physical or psychological wellbeing of the individual rendering them in need of some assistance to ensure their health and safety, and
Any other circumstances under which a reasonable person would conclude that the use of the personal information is necessary to the health and safety of the individual
Subject to these Terms, ePACT hereby grants to you a non-transferable, non-exclusive, limited, terminable license to use the Service if you are an End User for the sole purpose of developing a support network of family friends, caregivers and organizations; and if you are an Organizational User creating, storing, accessing, managing and sharing emergency information on behalf of your organization and its members. Each ePACT User may use the Service to communicate with a support network and for accessing and sharing information and resources provided by ePACT and other ePACT Users for the purpose of responding to and being prepared for Emergencies. You may not: (a) rent, lease, lend, sell, exchange, assign, transfer, redistribute or sublicense the Service, or any part thereof; (b) copy, decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble, attempt to derive the source code of, modify, create derivative works of, or otherwise exploit, the Service or any part thereof; (c) modify the Service in any manner or use it in any manner other than its intended use; (d) remove, conceal, destroy or otherwise dispose of any copyright, trade mark or other proprietary rights notice from the Service or the Website; or (e) copy, imitate, reproduce, republish, upload, post, transmit, modify or distribute the Website or any of its content in any form or in any way, in whole or in part, without the express prior written consent of ePACT.
3. Mobile Applications and Devices
ePACT offers a mobile application service that allows ePACT Users to access personal information about those End Users who are part of their network in the case of an emergency (the “App“). If you are an Organizational User, we grant you a personal, non-exclusive license to use the App for the purpose of receiving the Service. You may not copy, reproduce, duplicate or resell the App or any part of it and you may not modify, translate, reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, or create derivative works based on the App except to the extent that enforcement is prohibited by applicable law.
ePACT does not provide any mobile devices and it is your responsibility to provision any equipment necessary to use the App. Mobile carrier rates and fees, such as text messaging, roaming and data charges may apply.
If you download the App from a third party platform provider (eg. the AppStore; GooglePlay) (“Platform Provider“), you acknowledge and agree to the following additional terms:
a. this Agreement is concluded solely between EPACT and you and not with Platform Provider, and ePACT not Platform Provider, is solely responsible for the App and the content thereof. To the extent this Agreement provides for usage rules for the App which are less restrictive or in conflict with the Platform Provider’s Terms of Service, the more restrictive or conflicting Platform Provider term will take precedence and will apply;
b. Platform Provider has no obligation whatsoever to provide any maintenance and support services with respect to the App. ePACT is solely responsible for any product warranties, whether express or implied by law, to the extent not effectively disclaimed. In the event of any failure of the App to conform to any applicable warranty, you may notify Platform Provider, and Platform Provider will refund the purchase price for the App to you and to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Platform Provider will have no other warranty obligation whatsoever with respect to the App, and any other claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs or expenses attributable to any failure to conform to any warranty will be EPACT’s sole responsibility;
c. ePACT, not Platform Provider, is responsible for addressing any claims you may have or any third party relating to the App or your possession and/or use of the App, including, but not limited to: (i) product liability claims; (ii) any claim that the App fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement; (iii) claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation.; and/or (iv) intellectual property infringement claims; and
d. Platform Provider, and Platform Provider’s subsidiaries, are third party beneficiaries of this Agreement, and that, upon your acceptance of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Platform Provider will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce this Agreement against you as a third party beneficiary thereof.
e. You represent and warrant that (i) you are not located in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a “terrorist supporting” country; and (ii) you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties.
5. Sharing Content and Information – End Users
End Users: You own all of the content and personal information you store using the Service, and you control the information you share with other ePACT Users, and which individuals and groups you share it with. By accepting an invitation from an organization (such as your child’s school or daycare), and completing the organization’s information form, you are granting them access to this personal information. Every person you invite to join your network (as an emergency contact, legal guardian, family member, organization or other affiliate) will automatically obtain access to your personal information as soon as they accept the invitation. This includes medical information that you submit to your ePACT account.
- You will not solicit login information or access an account belonging to someone else.
- You will not upload viruses or other malicious code.
- You will not use the Service to do anything unlawful, misleading, malicious, or discriminatory.

7. Registration and Account Security

- You will not transfer your account (including any page or group you administer) to anyone without first getting our written permission.
- You will not use the Service to access or obtain any personal or other infoFor as long as ePACT continues to offer the Service, ePACT will provide and seek to update, improve and expand the Service.

We may modify, replace, refuse access to, suspend or discontinue the Service for you or for all ePACT Users in our sole discretion. All of these changes will be effective upon their notification as an update to these Terms provided on the Website or by direct communication to you
8. Availability During a Natural Disaster
ePACT endeavours to ensure your information will be available during a natural disaster (for more information see our Security page)). However, ePACT cannot guarantee access then or at any time and therefore strongly recommends that both End Users and Organizational Users maintain paper backups of all information and store this information in a safe location that can easily be accessed in an emergency situation.
9. Disclosure of User Information
You acknowledge, consent and agree that we may access, preserve, and disclose your registration and any other information you provide (including personal information) if required or permitted to do so by law or in a good faith belief that such access, preservation or disclosure is necessary in order to: (1) comply with legal process, including, but not limited to, civil and criminal subpoenas, court orders or other compulsory disclosures; (2) enforce these Terms; (3) respond to claims of a violation of the rights of third parties, whether or not the third party is an ePACT User, individual, or government agency; (4) respond to customer service inquiries; or (5) protect the rights, property, or personal safety, as applicable, of ePACT, other ePACT Users or the public.
10. Connections and Interactions with other ePACT Users
