7. Purchase Subscribers - Types of Subscriptions
There is no cost for a Purchase Subscriber to use the Service to trigger an Alarm, designate persons to be included in your network to receive an Alarm Alert (the “Alarm Alert Feature”), to use CrowdWise (but not use any CrowdWise Rewards) or to access its Usage Content via its Account (collectively, “Standard Services”).
The ability to access the Monitoring Feature and use CrowdWise Rewards requires a Pay Subscription (such type of Pay Subscription, a “Basic Subscription”). The ability to access HomeWatch requires a Pay Subscription (such type of Pay Subscription, a “Premium Subscription”). Each Pay Subscription includes all of the Standard Services, and the Premium Subscription also includes the portion of the Service available through a Basic Subscription. If you select a Pay Subscription, you agree to the pricing and payment terms, as we may update them from time to time. Occly may add new features to a Pay Subscription for additional fees and charges, or amend fees and charges for the portion of the Service included in a Pay Subscription, at any time in its sole discretion and we will communicate any price changes to you in advance and, if applicable, how to accept those changes. Price changes for a Pay Subscription will take effect at the start of the next subscription period following the date of the price change. As permitted by local law, you accept the new price by continuing to use the portion of the Service included in the applicable Pay Subscription (other than the Standard Services) after the price change takes effect. If you do not agree with the price changes, you have the right to reject the change by unsubscribing from such Pay Subscription prior to the price change going into effect. Please therefore make sure you read any such notification of price changes carefully.
As of the date first written above, the Services (other than accessing Usage Content via an Account) are only available within the United States of America. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Alarm Alert Feature and the Monitoring Feature are not provided or supported outside of the United States of America.

Pricing and Payment Terms of Lease Subscription
By selecting to become a Lease Subscriber and not a Purchase Subscriber, you agree to the pricing and payment terms of the Lease Subscription, as we may update them from time to time. Occly may amend the fees and charges for the Lease Subscription at any time in its sole discretion and we will communicate any price changes to you in advance and, if applicable, how to accept those changes; provided, however, that no amendment will be effective until the expiration of your Lease Pre-Paid Period (as defined below). Price changes for a Lease Subscription will take effect at the start of the next monthly period following the date of the price change. As permitted by local law, you accept the new price by continuing to use the Service after the price change takes effect.

Obligation to Return the Occly Device.
You shall return the Occly Device to Occly promptly following the Lease Subscription Termination Notification Date or the cancellation of your Lease Subscription by Occly. Failure to return the Occly Device to Occly in the original, undamaged packaging and in satisfactory condition, in each case as determined by Occly in its sole discretion, along with the RMA number within thirty (30) days after either such date of the will result in a charge equal to the MSRP for the applicable Occly Device (the “Non-Return Fee”) (the earlier of the date of such return of the Occly Device or the receipt by Occly of the Non-Return Fee, the “Lease Termination Date”). You alone bear the risk of loss if the Occly Device is destroyed, damaged (ordinary wear and tear excepted) or not delivered to Occly.

Occly Lease Device Replacement

You agree that, upon your receipt of the Occly LDR, you shall return your existing Occly Device to Occly. If your existing Occly Device is not returned in satisfactory condition as determined by Occly in its sole discretion within thirty (30) days after your receipt of the New Occly Device, then a charge equal to the MSRP for the applicable Occly Device is due (the “Non-Return Device Fee”). You alone bear the risk of loss if the Occly Device is destroyed, damaged (ordinary wear and tear excepted) or not delivered to Occly. By providing a credit card number or other payment method to Occly at any time, you authorize Occly (or a third party payment processor) to charge such payment method for the Non-Return Device Fee.
9. Alarms, Alarm Alerts and other Alerts.
Occly may from time to time provide automatic Alerts and Account-related Alerts. Automatic Alerts are sent to you following certain changes made online to your Account, such as a change in your registration information. You may have the option to suppress some of these automatic Alerts, but we recommend that you do not do so because limiting Alerts could negatively affect performance of the Service. Occly may add new Alerts from time to time, or cease to provide certain Alerts at any time upon its sole discretion. Electronic Alerts may be sent to the email address or telephone number you have provided. If your email address or telephone number changes, you are responsible for informing us of that change. Because Alerts are not encrypted, we will never include your passcode. However, Alerts may include some information about your Account. Depending upon which Alerts you select, information such as a subscription renewal, payment reminder or that a payment method has expired may be included. Anyone with access to your email or telephone may be able to view the content of these Alerts.
You understand and agree that any Alerts, including without limitation Alarm Alerts, may be delayed or prevented by a variety of factors.
