Please read these Terms of Use (“Terms”) carefully before using the Groove mobile application (the “Service”) operated by Katasi Inc. (“us”, “we”, or “our”). The Service is provided in conjunction with Ready Mobile and other partners, and is designed to improve driving safety by temporarily blocking calls, text messages, social media, and certain other distractions (“Device Distractions”) to and from the mobile device on which you installed and registered our Service (“Device”) while you drive your vehicle (“Vehicle”). By downloading, accessing, or using the Service you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you do not agree to all of these Terms, you are prohibited and must refrain from using the Service.
Key Points
The following key points of the Terms are highlighted for your convenience. The key points are not made in lieu of the full Terms, and they do not supersede or override any other terms or conditions provided by us.
• Safe Driving. Our Service is designed to improve driving safety by blocking Device Distractions. You should, however, always drive vigilantly according to road conditions and in accordance with traffic laws, and you assume all risks related to driving and your use of the Service in your vehicle. Failure to do so may result in an crash involving serious injury or death. We are not responsible for any crash, injury, or damage to you, others, and your Vehicle or other property related to your driving of your vehicle.
• Device Distractions. The Service can only block Device Distractions on the Device when the Device and the Module (defined below) are used in accordance with instructions from us or our partners, and therefore we are not responsible for Device Distractions or other driving distractions resulting from (a) any mobile device not registered with us; (b) any mobile device registered to any person other than you; (c) the use or operation of applications on the Device or other devices other than those blocked; (d) other distractions within the car, such as those related to in-vehicle Wi-Fi and/or entertainment systems; (e) your attempts to use your Device notwithstanding the Service; (f) failure of the Device or the Module to be adequately powered or wirelessly connected (including Bluetooth or nearfield communications) without interference; (g) failure of the Service to send block signals to your cellular service provider at the start of a drive, due to unusual locations of devices and persons in the vehicle or due to other unusual circumstances; (h) failure of your cellular service provider or failures or impairments of wireless or internet communications generally, resulting in failure to block or inappropriate blocking of Device Distractions; (i) failures of any hardware or software, including your Device, the Module and any hardware or software systems in your vehicle; and (j) any other events or circumstances outside our control. In addition, the Service could, at times, block Device Distractions that may be important or time-sensitive. We are not responsible for any injury, harm, or damages, including but not limited to a delay or an inability to use your wireless service, that may result from your receiving or not receiving a Device Distraction, whether you are driving or not.
Emergency 9-1-1 Calls. We enable you to easily override the Service to make important calls, such as emergency calls to 9-1-1. We, however, are not responsible in the event you are unable to make an emergency call whether due to our Service or otherwise.
• Your Vehicle and Module. Our Service is designed to be used in conjunction with a module (“Module”) provided by one of our partners that is designed to plug into your Vehicle’s on-board-diagnostics (“OBD”) port.
