Terms of Use

HomeTerms of Use

1. ACCEPTANCE
We encourage you to read these Terms of Service (the “Terms”). This is a legally binding contract that applies when you use Exact Blue (the “App”), a solution for water contamination testing. The term “us,” “we” or “our” refers to the owner-operator. The term “you” refers to all App users and visitors. Our Privacy Policy [www.exactblue.com/app/privacy-policy] also governs your use of the App. If you do not agree to accept these Terms or the Privacy Policy, you cannot use the App. Note that we may revise the aforementioned documents whenever we feel it is appropriate, sometimes without prior notification. The effective date of the last updates is at the top of this page. If you continue visiting our App after we have published the revised versions, this constitutes your acceptance of the changes. If you do not agree with any changes, you must exit the App.

2. DISCLAIMERS
a) No Liability for Test Results. Our smartphone water testing kit is meant to be a screening test for total microbial contamination or specific bacteria as indicated on packaging. WE DISCLAIM ALL LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF TEST RESULTS. While we have taken steps to reasonably maximize the accuracy of our testing system, there is a possibility that the system can return a positive result due to various environment, physical or other circumstances. Given that the system deals with microbiological contaminants at a microbial scale, the EBI system has a detection limit and it is possible that pathogenic microbes may be present in low concentration or different strains (false negative contamination result) even when indicated risk is low or below detection limit. Therefore, WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY COSTS, INJURIES, SICKNESS OR EVEN DEATH AS A RESULT OF CONSUMPTION OF WATER IN RELIANCE ON THE APP TEST RESULTS. We are not responsible for breakage or spillage of test vials/cartridges.
b) Third Party Services. We use third party services that are not owned or controlled by us. We assume no responsibility for the practices, content, privacy policies of any third parties. You acknowledge that we will not be liable for any claims, demands and damages of any kind and nature arising out of or in any way connected from any potential liabilities arising from the use of any third party. We cannot guarantee the availability or performance of any third party services used to support the App. Such third party services may change their operations without notice to us. Therefore, we shall not be liable for any outages, version changes, delivery delays, failures, bugs, or termination of third party network service. Third party networks have their own terms of use, and you must comply with any terms of use provided by any third party network.
c) Disclaimer of Warranty. THIS APP AND ALL OF ITS CONTENT ARE PROVIDED “AS IS”. YOU MUST NOT RELY ON ANY TEST RESULTS OR OTHER INFORMATION PROVIDED BY OR LINKED TO FROM THIS APP WITHOUT FIRST MAKING YOUR OWN ENQUIRIES TO VERIFY IT IS ACCURATE, CURRENT AND COMPLETE. WE DO NOT MAKE, AND EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM, ANY REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES, COVENANTS AND CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ARISING OUT OF OPERATION OF LAW, COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, COURSE OF DEALING, USAGE OF TRADE OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS OF: MERCHANTABILITY; FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE; NON-INFRINGEMENT; SAFETY; QUALITY; FREEDOM FROM DEFECTS OR THAT DEFECTS WILL BE CORRECTED; UNINTERRUPTED, VIRUS-FREE OR ERROR-FREE USE OF THIS APP; OR ACCURACY, CURRENCY, RELIABILITY, COMPLETENESS OR APPROPRIATENESS RELATING TO THE CONTENT OF THIS APP.
d) Limitation of Liability. WE SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOST PROFITS AND PROPERTY DAMAGE, EVEN IF WE WERE ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, NOR SHALL WE BE HELD LIABLE FOR DELAY OR FAILURE IN PERFORMANCE RESULTING FROM CAUSES BEYOND OUR REASONABLE CONTROL. IN NO EVENT WILL OUR AGGREGATE LIABILITY EXCEED THE AMOUNTS YOU PAID US FOR THE APP. NO CLAIM, SUIT OR ACTION MAY BE BROUGHT AGAINST US AFTER SIX MONTHS FROM THE UNDERLYING CAUSE OF ACTION. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES OR THE LIMITATION, OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
e) Smartphone. App uses cellular or WiFi to transmit data. We are not responsible for any charges you incur as a result of this connection. We will not be responsible for any smartphone failures, including without limitation loss of battery power due to use of bluetooth, GPS and other standard smartphone functions.
