ZABRA TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE
This User Agreement is in effect as of November 1, 2012.
We reserve the right to change this User Agreement from time to time without notice. You acknowledge and agree that it is your responsibility to review this User Agreement periodically to familiarize yourself with any modifications. Your continued use of this Site after such modifications will constitute acknowledgment and agreement of the modified terms and conditions.
Overview of the Products and Services
The use of most of the Products and Services will require you to create a profile and add account information for online services and social media accounts belonging to / controlled by you and/or your children / family (collectively, the “Linked Accounts”). Zabra will import personal information from those accounts, including a record of activities conducted on and contacts made through those accounts (collectively “Account Activity”) so that you may monitor your children’s activities. The Products and Services may also include public forums where you may interact with other users of the Products and Services and upload or publicly post information, text, images, video or other materials (collectively “Public Content”).
You are the Legal Owner of the Linked Accounts
You warrant and represent to us that the Linked Accounts belong to or are controlled by you or your family. Specifically, although Linked Accounts may be established in the names and using credentials for your minor children, you warrant and represent to us that you control all Linked Accounts and you have the legal authority to connect the Linked Accounts to your Zabra user account. You agree that it is your sole responsibility to ensure that all accounts used by your children that you wish to monitor are set up as Linked Accounts. Additionally, you agree that various laws may apply to the monitoring of Linked Accounts and that it is your sole responsibility to ensure compliance with any such laws and that Zabra expressly disclaims any duty or obligation to do so.
Limitations of the Products and Services
There are natural limitations to the effectiveness of the Products and Services. In considering these limitations, please take note that the Products and Services:
- Are designed to help you monitor your children’s Internet, online and mobile activities and identify potentially risky or troubling trends or behavior based on patterns in your children’s Internet, online and mobile usage; and
- Are highly dependent on your efforts to ensure that all Internet, mobile, and online devices and accounts used by your children are set up as Linked Accounts.
- Additionally, the Products and Services are not, and should not be presumed to be, a substitute for:
- Active involvement by you in your children’s online and offline lives and activities; and
- Direct, active oversight and supervision of your children and of their Internet, mobile phone, and online device usage.
Use of the Products and Services does not guarantee the safety of your children and we cannot assure you that by using the Products and Services your children will be protected from encountering the types of material and communications and hazards the Products and Services are designed to identify and address. Likewise, Zabra cannot guarantee your children will not suffer any negative effects therefrom. Among other things, this is because: (a) we may not have access to all online or social accounts and devices used by your children (and your children also may use accounts and devices of friends or acquaintances to mask or hide certain activities and communications) and therefore have no way to assure you that all of their Internet, mobile, and online, activities are being monitored, even if you believe that they are; (b) sufficient data may not be available based on your children’s usage of Internet, mobile, and online devices and communications; (c) children and teens have become (and will continue to become) increasingly sophisticated in their tactics, use of technology, and efforts to mask the nature of their activities/communications and defeat parental and other monitoring efforts, and (d) no amount of monitoring or guidance or resources can be expected to be effective or achieve their intended objectives 100% of the time.
In light of these and other limitations, we strongly encourage you (beyond using the Products and Services) to:
- Proactively engage with your children on a regular basis and stay informed about both their online and offline activities.
- Set and adhere to policies and boundaries for their use of Internet, mobile, and online devices and consider the use of “technology use agreements” or guidelines with your children.
- Listen to your instincts and actively evaluate any warning signs you see, whether flagged by the Products and Services or observed by you through direct interaction with your children or other means.
- Your particular situation or issues are unique to you and your family, ZABRA encourages you to seek help from a licensed professional that can understand the unique aspects of your particular situation should you need further assistance.
