If you do not consent to these Terms or lack authorization to access and/or use the Products, you are prohibited from accessing or using the Products. In the event you are accessing and/or using the Products on behalf of a corporation (such as your employer) or any other legal entity which is our Customer, you are bound by these Terms on behalf of said entity, and you affirm that you possess the requisite authority to bind such entity to these Terms. If you have entered into a distinct agreement with FleetMetriks pertaining to the purchase or availability of Products, and in the event of any inconsistency between said agreement and these Terms, the former shall take precedence. Throughout these Terms, references to “you” and “your” pertain to said company or legal entity, our Customer. Usage of the Products is not permissible if you are a direct competitor of ours, as determined at our sole discretion, unless consent is obtained in writing beforehand.

3. Amendments to Terms or Services. 

FleetMetriks reserves the right to revise the Terms at any time, at our discretion. In the event of such revisions, FleetMetriks will notify you by publishing the updated Terms on the Services or our website, or through other means of communication with you, our Customer. It is imperative that you regularly review the Terms whenever modifications are made, as your continued use of the Products subsequent to FleetMetriks’s publication or notification of the revised Terms indicates your acceptance of said revisions. Should you disagree with the amended Terms, you are not permitted to continue using the Products.

4. Licensing Agreement. 

Subject to the terms and conditions outlined in these Terms or any relevant Order Form, FleetMetriks grants the Customer a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, and revocable license to utilize and access the FleetMetriks Software. This license is granted:

(ii) For the specific number and type of FleetMetriks Software licenses as specified in the applicable Order Form, and solely for the functionality included therein

(iii) From the designated License Start Date until the expiration date indicated in the Order Form or until termination of said Order Form or these Terms, whichever occurs first.

The provision of Support Services and adherence to the Hosted Software SLA are integral components of this license grant and are contingent upon the possession of a valid license. The licensing of Firmware for each Hardware item is dependent on the Customer acquiring and maintaining a valid license for the corresponding FleetMetriks Software. It is emphasized that the license for FleetMetriks Software associated with a Hardware unit is only valid for use in conjunction with that specific Hardware unit, unless said unit is replaced in accordance with the Hardware Warranty Policy and RMA Policy.

FleetMetriks retains the right to audit the Customer’s utilization of FleetMetriks Software and to restrict access to features or functionalities of the software beyond the licensed scope (for example, exceeding licensed feature scope or user count) at any time. Should the Customer wish to extend the usage of FleetMetriks Software beyond the licensed scope, it is necessary to purchase the appropriate FleetMetriks Software licenses and, if applicable, install the relevant Hardware inclusive of such scope. In the event that FleetMetriks becomes aware of the Customer exceeding the licensed scope, FleetMetriks reserves the right to charge the Customer for the relevant FleetMetriks Software licenses at the current list price, and the Customer agrees to promptly settle such charges. Furthermore, throughout the duration of the license term specified in an Order Form, the Customer acknowledges that downgrading from a higher-tier FleetMetriks Software license plan to a lower-tier plan (for instance, transitioning from an “Advanced” license to a “Basic” license) is not permitted.

5. Restrictions on License.

(xiii) Authorizing, permitting, encouraging, or enabling any other individual or entity to engage in any of the aforementioned actions.

In instances where the Customer lacks the expertise or capability to perform the installation or maintenance, or is uncertain about possessing the required skills and knowledge, the Customer agrees to seek guidance from a qualified installer or maintenance professional. Improper installation of the Hardware or inadequate maintenance of Equipment may result in damage to the Equipment or the creation of hazardous or life-threatening conditions, which could lead to property damage, bodily harm, and/or loss of life.

In the event that FleetMetriks ceases to support a Hardware model and the corresponding FleetMetriks Software, which you have procured from FleetMetriks in accordance with these Terms, prior to the applicable License Expiration Date without offering a replacement with an updated or comparable version or model, you reserve the right to terminate the relevant Order Form pertaining to the affected Products and request a Refund for said Products. Updates or upgrades may encompass security or bug fixes, performance enhancements, or new functionalities, and may be implemented with or without prior notification to the Customer. The Customer hereby agrees to accept such automatic updates.

TEST PRODUCTS ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE,” WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. The Customer acknowledges that Test products, which may interact, interface, or integrate with third-party products and/or services, might not be validated or supported by such third parties and may interfere with the operations of or void warranties for such third-party products and/or services.

FleetMetriks reserves the right to modify, terminate, or discontinue Test Products at any time at its sole discretion, for any reason, with or without notice, and without incurring any liability to the Customer. FleetMetriks is under no obligation to make any Test Products generally available to FleetMetriks customers. If FleetMetriks chooses, at its sole discretion, to offer a Test Products to FleetMetriks customers as a new Product or as part of an existing Product, FleetMetriks may cease offering such an offering to the Customer as a Test Products at that point in time.

The Customer acknowledges and agrees that any continued usage after such discontinuation date will necessitate the Customer to purchase or have already purchased the applicable Product under an Order Form and settle any additional amounts owed for such purchase. Except as explicitly stated otherwise in this Section

FleetMetriks may provide Customer contact information and payment timeliness information to credit rating agencies, credit reporting agencies, or similar entities. If Customer submits a payment without specifying the corresponding invoice, FleetMetriks retains the right to allocate such payment to any outstanding Customer invoice(s).

Customer is accountable for all applicable taxes, levies, duties, or similar governmental assessments, including but not limited to value-added, sales, use, or withholding taxes, imposed by any jurisdiction (“Taxes”), regardless of designation or incurred under these Terms. If FleetMetriks is legally obligated to pay or collect Taxes for which Customer is responsible under this section, FleetMetriks will issue an invoice to Customer, who must reimburse FleetMetriks for any taxes paid or payable on behalf of Customer. Unless mandated by applicable law, FleetMetriks will not provide retroactive Tax refunds or credits to Customer. Any Tax refunds or credits provided to Customer, subject to applicable legal requirements, are at the sole discretion of FleetMetriks, and FleetMetriks reserves the right to charge Customer reasonable fees and costs associated with processing such Tax refund or credit.

8.2 Shipment and Delivery. All shipments are made FOB (2010) Origin, Freight Prepaid, and Charged Back.

FleetMetriks may dispatch Hardware pursuant to an Order Form according to a schedule agreed upon by both parties or determined by FleetMetriks. In the event Hardware is shipped in multiple consignments under an Order Form, the FleetMetriks Software license term associated with Hardware dispatched after the initial shipment will expire on the same date as the FleetMetriks Software license term associated with Hardware dispatched in the initial shipment. The total cost of the FleetMetriks Software licenses linked with such Hardware dispatched subsequent to the initial shipment will be prorated based on their actual license term, rounded up to the nearest month, relative to the full FleetMetriks Software license term stipulated under the Order Form. Certain payment amounts outlined in an Order Form presuppose simultaneous shipment of all Hardware under said Order Form and are susceptible to potential adjustment by FleetMetriks contingent upon the actual schedule of Hardware shipment.

Notwithstanding any provisions to the contrary in these Terms, the receiving Party may disclose the disclosing Party’s Confidential Information to the extent required by law or regulation. However, unless prohibited by applicable law or regulation, the receiving Party must make reasonable efforts to provide the disclosing Party with advance notice of such requirement and must reasonably cooperate with the disclosing Party at the disclosing Party’s expense in preventing, limiting, or safeguarding such disclosure.

12. Proprietary Rights.

12.1 FleetMetriks Software. FleetMetriks and its licensors possess all rights, title, and interest in and to FleetMetriks Software, including all related intellectual property rights, exclusively. Customer acknowledges that the FleetMetriks Software is safeguarded by patent, copyright, trademark, and other laws of the United States and foreign countries. Customer agrees not to tamper with, modify, or obscure any copyright, trademark, service mark, or other proprietary rights notices incorporated in or accompanying the Services. By these Terms, Customer hereby transfers and assigns to FleetMetriks all rights, title, and interest it may hold in the FleetMetriks Software, and FleetMetriks accepts such transfer.

FleetMetriks and its licensors exclusively hold all intellectual property rights in the Hardware. Additionally, FleetMetriks maintains ownership of the Firmware, including all associated intellectual property rights. Customer acknowledges the protection of the Firmware under patent, copyright, trademark, and other laws of the United States and foreign countries.

Customer further recognizes and accepts that portions of the Firmware, such as the source code and the specific design and structure of individual modules or programs, comprise or contain trade secrets of FleetMetriks and its licensors.

13. Connectivity Data Usage

A FleetMetriks Software license encompasses connectivity data only if such license SKU is explicitly designated as including connectivity data and specifies the quantity of connectivity data provided. When connectivity data is incorporated in a FleetMetriks Software license, the connectivity between the relevant Hardware and the licensed FleetMetriks Software does not contribute towards the included connectivity data limit. FleetMetriks reserves the authority to regulate access to personal entertainment streaming services via Hardware connectivity. Exceeding any included connectivity data cap may lead to reduced connection speeds, restricted or interrupted connectivity, or a combination thereof. However, the restriction or interruption of connectivity will not affect the functionality of hours of service logs. The Customer can monitor any included connectivity data usage from the “Gateways” page within the “SIMS” section of the Organization dashboard.

14. Non-FleetMetriks Products. 

The Products may feature links to, or the capability to integrate or interact with, import or export data to or from, provide access to, or be accessed by Non-FleetMetriks Products (collectively referred to as “Non-FleetMetriks Product Integrations”). Should the Customer choose to utilize any Non-FleetMetriks Product Integrations, including but not limited to data exchange between Products and Non-FleetMetriks Products, the Customer agrees to:

(i) Assume sole responsibility for and all risks arising from the Customer’s utilization of Non-FleetMetriks Product Integrations and the content, functionality, or availability of any Non-FleetMetriks Products, including waiving and releasing FleetMetriks from any claims directly or indirectly linked to such use.

(ii) Defend, indemnify, and hold harmless FleetMetriks from any third-party claims directly or indirectly resulting from or associated with the Customer’s utilization of any Non-FleetMetriks Product Integrations.

FLEETMETRIKS PROVIDES NON-FLEETMETRIKS PRODUCT INTEGRATIONS “AS IS” WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY AND MERELY AS A MATTER OF CONVENIENCE.

This new Order Form may include additional or altered Products or license terms, as agreed upon.

If FleetMetriks auto-renews your license term without your execution of a new Order Form, your payment method will remain the same as specified in the original Order Form (e.g., monthly if monthly payments were allowed, or annually if annual payments or upfront payment were allowed).

In the event that your license term is renewed after the termination of the preceding license term, and FleetMetriks permits you, at its sole discretion, to continue using the applicable Products during this interim period, these Terms will govern such usage.

For inquiries regarding automatic renewal, please contact renewals@fleetmetriks.com.

16.2 Termination.

FleetMetriks, Customer, or any other entity involved in the creation, production, or delivery of the Products shall not be held liable for any incidental, special, punitive, exemplary, or consequential damages. This includes but is not limited to lost profits, loss of data or goodwill, service interruption, computer damage, system failure, or the cost of substitute products arising from or related to these Terms or the use of or inability to use the Products. Such damages may arise from warranty, contract, tort (including negligence), product liability, or any other legal theory, irrespective of whether the party has been notified of the possibility of such damage. This limitation remains even if a limited remedy outlined herein is deemed ineffective. Please note that some jurisdictions prohibit the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, and thus, this limitation may not apply universally.

18.2 Limitation. Unless otherwise specified, neither party, nor any affiliated entity, shall be liable to the other party for any damages exceeding the aggregate amount paid by Customer to FleetMetriks during the twelve (12) months preceding the incident giving rise to the claim. This limitation does not apply to indemnification obligations, breaches of license restrictions, or payment obligations under an order form.

If the Parties cannot resolve any dispute arising from or relating to these Terms or Customer’s use of the Products within sixty (60) days after one Party gives notice of the dispute to the other, the dispute shall be finally and exclusively settled by confidential arbitration in Miami, Florida, United States. The arbitration shall be conducted in English and in accordance with the Arbitration Rules and Procedures of the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services, Inc. (“JAMS Rules”) then in effect. The arbitration panel shall consist of one or more commercial arbitrator(s) with substantial experience in resolving complex commercial contract disputes. The Parties agree that the arbitrator(s) shall have the authority to award preliminary and permanent injunctive relief, damages, and any other relief available in law, equity, or pursuant to applicable law. Additionally, any emergency arbitrator(s) appointed in accordance with the JAMS Rules shall have the authority to grant emergency relief in accordance with those rules.

19.2. Waiver of Class Action. Any arbitration or dispute resolution proceedings concerning these Terms or Customer’s use of the Products will be carried out strictly on an individual basis. They will not be pursued as a class action, consolidated action, private attorney general action, or any other representative action. You explicitly waive any right to initiate or participate in a class action or seek relief on a class basis. Unless expressly agreed otherwise by FleetMetriks in writing, the arbitrator or adjudicator will not consolidate claims from more than one person or entity.

20. Governing Law. These Terms and any matters arising from them will be governed by the laws of the State of Florida, excluding its conflict of laws principles. Except as otherwise provided in the arbitration agreement herein, any legal actions arising from or related to these Terms or Customer’s use of the Products shall be exclusively brought in the state and federal courts situated in Miami-Dade County, Florida, United States. Both Parties agree to submit to the jurisdiction of such courts concerning any such legal actions.

21. General Terms.

21.1 Miscellaneous. These Terms, along with any applicable Order Form, constitute the entire agreement between FleetMetriks and you regarding the Products and supersedes any prior agreements, whether oral or written, concerning the same subject matter. Any standard terms and conditions associated with Customer payment portals or FleetMetriks’s onboarding as a vendor are considered void and ineffective, overriding any conflicting terms in those documents. In case of any conflict between an Order Form and these Terms, the terms of the Order Form shall prevail. However, certain provisions may apply differently in specific scenarios: (a) if a Purchase Order is accompanied by a Quote, the terms of the Quote shall prevail over the Purchase Order; (b) for Purchase Orders issued by FleetMetriks resellers, the terms of the reseller agreement supersede any conflicting terms in the Purchase Order. Purchase Orders are for record-keeping purposes only and do not modify the Agreement or the applicable Quote. If any provision of these Terms is found invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect. You may not assign these Terms without FleetMetriks’s consent, but FleetMetriks may assign them freely. These Terms are binding upon the Parties and their successors and permitted assigns. No FleetMetriks Affiliate, employee, director, officer, or shareholder shall be liable under these Terms. Notices will be provided via email, posting on FleetMetriks’s website, or within the Services. Failure to enforce any provision of these Terms does not waive the right to enforce it later. Any waiver must be in writing and signed by both Parties. Except as stated herein, the exercise of any remedy does not waive other remedies available under these Terms.

21.2 Acceptable Use. Customer must not, and shall not permit any third party, including its Authorized Users, to (a) utilize the Products: (i) for any inappropriate, unlawful, discriminatory, or otherwise detrimental purpose, or (ii) to infringe upon, or promote the infringement of, the rights of others, encompassing legal rights (such as intellectual property or proprietary rights) or human rights (inclusive of the fundamental rights inherent to all human beings, irrespective of race, gender, nationality, ethnicity, language, religion, or any other characteristic, including but not limited to the right to life and freedom, freedom from slavery and torture, freedom of expression and opinion, the right to education and work, among others), as reasonably determined by FleetMetriks; or (b) partake in abusive, harassing, threatening, offensive, or otherwise inappropriate behavior towards FleetMetriks or its employees, agents, service providers, partners, or fellow customers. 

21.3 Export Restrictions. Customer is prohibited from utilizing the Products in contravention of applicable export control or sanctions laws of the United States or any other relevant jurisdiction. Customer may not use the Products if they are, or are acting on behalf of, any restricted individual or entity, including those identified on the U.S. Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals, the U.S. Department of Commerce Denied Person’s List or Entity List, the State Department’s Debarred list, or any similar denied parties list, without obtaining prior authorization from the U.S. Government. Customer must refrain from exporting, re-exporting, or transferring the Products for use, either directly or indirectly, in any prohibited activity outlined in Part 744 of the U.S. Export Administration Regulations, which includes certain activities involving nuclear, chemical, or biological weapons, rocket systems, or unmanned air vehicle end-uses.

21.4 Force Majeure. FleetMetriks shall not be held liable or considered in default of these Terms, nor shall it be deemed to have breached its obligations under these Terms, due to any failure or delay in performing its duties resulting from a force majeure event. Such an event includes any circumstance or occurrence beyond FleetMetriks’s reasonable control, such as war, hostilities, acts of God, earthquakes, floods, fires, or other natural disasters, labor strikes or conditions, shortages of materials, epidemics, governmental actions, or failures of utilities, transportation facilities, or communication or electronic systems.

21.5 Financed Purchases and Other Payment Arrangements. If you are accessing the Products through financing provided by a third-party entity (“Lender”), the following provisions in this Section shall govern. Your obligations to the Lender are unconditional and absolute, and not subject to any offset or counterclaim between you and the Lender, unless explicitly agreed otherwise in a separate financing agreement (“Financing Agreement”) executed between you and the Lender. Upon execution of the Financing Agreement, you acknowledge and agree that the Lender is prepaying FleetMetriks for the Products on your behalf, and such prepayment is final and non-refundable by FleetMetriks, unless otherwise specified in these Terms. You assume the risk associated with any non-delivery or unsatisfactory performance of the Products, while acknowledging that this provision does not affect your rights against FleetMetriks as outlined in these Terms, or FleetMetriks’s obligations to you under these Terms.

Should you choose to discontinue using the Products for any reason, you remain liable for any outstanding payment obligations specified in the Financing Agreement. Any claims or disputes against FleetMetriks must be addressed directly with FleetMetriks and not through the Lender. FleetMetriks reserves the right to terminate your access to the Products if you breach these Terms or the terms of the Financing Agreement. Refunds issued by FleetMetriks for Product purchases financed under a Financing Agreement may, at FleetMetriks’s discretion, be remitted to the Lender. Any impact such remittance may have on your remaining payment obligations to the Lender is subject to the terms of the Financing Agreement.

Additionally, with FleetMetriks’s consent, granted at its sole discretion, if you request payment under an Order Form to be made by a Customer Affiliate, Lender, or any other third party authorized by you to make purchases or payments on your behalf (“Payment Arrangement”), you represent and warrant that such arrangements are made for legitimate business purposes and comply with all applicable laws, including tax laws. You remain directly liable for all obligations, including payment obligations, under these Terms and the applicable Order Form. You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless FleetMetriks against any liabilities, damages, demands, losses, claims, costs, fees (including legal fees), and expenses related to such Payment Arrangements.
