Welcome to the Kirio experience! The purchase and/or use of any component of this website, Kirio hardware and related products ("Products") and/or hosted services and applications ("Subscription Services") is governed by the following Terms & Conditions ("Terms & Conditions") as well as any additional terms that govern specific Kirio offerings, including but not limited to Purchase Orders, end user license agreements for mobile or web-based applications and in-box warranties that may accompany any hardware devices.
THIS IS A LEGAL AGREEMENT. BY PLACING AN ORDER FOR PRODUCTS AND/OR SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES, YOU ARE ACCEPTING AND AGREEING TO THESE TERMS & CONDITIONS. YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU HAVE THE RIGHT, AUTHORITY, AND CAPACITY TO ACCEPT AND AGREE TO THESE TERMS & CONDITIONS. YOU REPRESENT THAT YOU ARE OF SUFFICIENT LEGAL AGE IN YOUR JURISDICTION OR RESIDENCE TO PURCHASE AND USE PRODUCTS AND TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ANY OF THE PROVISIONS OF THESE TERMS & CONDITIONS, YOU SHOULD NOT PURCHASE THE PRODUCTS OR USE ANY OF THE SERVICES PROVIDED IN CONNECTION WITH THE PRODUCT.
Using Kirio Products and Services
Although this website is accessible worldwide, the Products and Subscription Services offered by Kirio are not designed and tested for use in all countries. If you choose to use the Products and Subscription Services outside the United States or Canada (each, an “Intended Territory”), as applicable, you do so on your own initiative and you are solely responsible for complying with applicable local laws in your country. You understand and accept that the Products and Subscription Services are not designed for use in countries except Intended Territories and some or all of the features of the Products and Subscription Services may not work or be appropriate for use outside the Intended Territories. To the extent permissible by law, Kirio accepts no responsibility or liability for any damage or loss caused by your access or use of this website, its Products and its Subscription Services in a non-Intended Territory.
We may offer different subscription plans for Subscription Services. For more information about these plans, please contact [email protected].
Continuous Subscriptions. When you purchase any of our Subscription Services, you expressly acknowledge and agree that Kirio is authorized to charge you a monthly or annual subscription service fee depending on the services you choose (in addition to any applicable taxes) for as long as your subscription continues, and (2) your subscription is continuous until you cancel it or such Subscription Service is suspended, discontinued or terminated .
Billing. We automatically bill the payment method associated with your Kirio account on a monthly or annual basis (depending on the services you choose). Day one of your billing cycle is tied to the date you activate your Subscription Services by pairing with a Kirio hardware device or using the software application associated with such service. You acknowledge that the amount billed may vary due to promotional offers, changes in your Subscription Services plan and changes in applicable taxes, and you authorize us to charge your payment method for the corresponding amounts.
Cancellations and Refunds. You may cancel your Subscription Services at any time by logging into your Kirio account and selecting "Cancel Subscription." Note that merely unpairing a Product from a Subscription Service will not trigger cancellation of the Subscription Service. In the event you cancel a Subscription Service, we will provide a prorated refund for the period of time starting the day after cancellation of the Subscription Service through the remainder of your billing cycle.
Free Trials. We may offer free trials of our Subscription Services for limited periods of time. If we offer you a free trial, the specific terms of your free trial will be provided at registration. We have no obligation to notify you when your free trial ends, and we reserve the right to modify or terminate free trials at any time, without notice and in our sole discretion.

By submitting any Ideas, you agree that your submissions are voluntary, gratuitous, and without restriction and will not place Kirio under any fiduciary or other obligation. We may use, copy, modify, publish, or redistribute the submission and its contents for any purpose and in any way without any compensation to you. You also agree that Kirio does not waive any rights to use similar or related ideas previously known to Kirio, developed by its employees, or obtained from other sources.
Availability and Pricing
All Products offered by Kirio are subject to availability, and we reserve the right to impose quantity limits on any order, to reject all or part of an order and to discontinue offering certain Products and/or Subscription Services without prior notice. Prices for the Products and Subscription Services are subject to change at any time, but changes will not affect any order for Products you have already placed. In the event we change the pricing for any Subscription Service you have purchased, we will give you advance notice of this change. After receiving this notice, you will be deemed to have accepted the change in pricing, unless you cancel your subscription within 30 days of notification (or any longer period identified in the notice we send to you).

Dispute Resolution and Arbitration
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW IF YOU WISH TO OPT OUT OF THE REQUIREMENT OF ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS.
- Arbitration. Kirio and you agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims that arise from or relating to these Terms & Conditions or your use of the Products and/or Subscription Services in any way, except for claims arising from bodily injury. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted, including, for example:
• claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us that is created by or involves these Terms & Conditions and/or your use of the Products and/or Subscription Services, regardless of the legal theory;
• claims for mental or emotional distress or other emotional/mental injury arising from the relationship between us;
• claims that arose before you accepted these Terms & Conditions (such as claims related to disclosures or the marketing of the Products and/or Subscription Services or the process for seeking approval to use the Products and/or Subscription Services);
• claims that may arise after the termination of your use of the Products and/or Subscription Services or any agreement between us; and
• claims brought by or against our respective subsidiaries, parent companies, members, affiliates, as well as the respective officers, directors, employees, agents, predecessors, successors, and assigns of these entities, you, and Kirio.
This arbitration agreement does not preclude either of us from bringing an individualized action in small claims court. It also does not preclude either of us from seeking an individualized preliminary injunction or temporary restraining order, pending arbitration, in any court that has jurisdiction. Nor does this arbitration agreement bar you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf. In addition, you or Kirio may seek injunctive or other equitable relief to protect your or its trade secrets and intellectual property rights or to prevent loss or damage to its services in any court with competent jurisdiction.
You agree that, by entering into this agreement, we are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class or representative action. These Terms & Conditions evidence a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration provision.
Notice of disputes. If either of us intends to seek arbitration of a dispute, that party must provide the other with notice in writing. The notice to Kirio should be sent to: Kirio — 19502 56th Ave. W, Suite 104, Lynnwood, WA 98036. Kirio will send notice to you at the email and/or mailing addresses associated with your account. Your notice to Kirio must (a) provide your name, mailing address, and email address; (b) describe the dispute; and (c) state the relief you are requesting. If we are unable to reach an agreement to resolve the dispute within 60 days after the notice is received, you or we may commence arbitration.
Arbitration procedures. The arbitration will be governed by the Consumer Arbitration Rules ("AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1 800 778 7879. If the AAA is unavailable, the parties shall agree to another arbitration provider or the court shall appoint a substitute. Unless you and we agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) where you are receiving Kirio Services. If the value of your claim is $10,000 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, by telephone, or by an in-person hearing. If the value of your claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this arbitration provision or the arbitrability of disputes are for the court to decide. The arbitrator may consider but is not bound by rulings in other arbitrations between Kirio and Kirio users. The arbitrator can award the same individualized damages and relief that a court can award. Judgment on the award may be entered by any court having jurisdiction.
Costs of arbitration. The AAA’s fee schedule is subject to change and may be found in the AAA Rules (available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1 800 778 7879). Kirio will pay all AAA filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees for any arbitration that Kirio commences. If you provided Kirio with 60 days’ notice of your intent to arbitrate before commencing arbitration and the value of your claim is $75,000 or less, Kirio will pay your share of any such AAA fees. If the value of your claim exceeds $75,000, the allocation of AAA fees will be governed by the AAA Rules (unless the law of your state requires Kirio to pay all such fees). If, however, the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all AAA fees shall be governed by the AAA Rules. In such cases, the arbitrator may direct you to reimburse Kirio for amounts that Kirio paid on your behalf.
No class arbitration. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim. YOU AND KIRIO AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL PROCEEDING. Further, unless all affected parties agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If a court decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this subsection’s limitations as to a particular claim for relief, then that claim (and only that claim) must be severed from the arbitration and may be brought in court.
30-Day Opt-Out Period. If you do not wish to be bound by the arbitration and class-action waiver provisions in this section 11, you must notify Kirio in writing within 30 days of the date that you first accept these Terms & Conditions (unless a longer period is required by applicable law). Your written notification must be mailed to Kirio at the following address: Kirio Legal Department, C/O Kirio — 19502 56th Ave. W, Suite 104, Lynnwood, WA 98036. Subject to section 11(g) below, if you do not notify Kirio in accordance with this section 11(f), you agree to be bound by the arbitration and class-action waiver provisions of these Terms & Conditions, including such provisions in any Terms & Conditions revised after the date of your first acceptance. Such notification must include: (a) your name, (b) the email address associated with your Kirio account, (c) your mailing address, and (d) a statement that you do not wish to resolve disputes with Kirio through arbitration. This notification affects these Terms & Conditions only; if you previously entered into other arbitration agreements with Kirio or enter into other such agreements in the future, your notification that you are opting out of the arbitration provision in these Terms & Conditions shall not affect the other arbitration agreements between you and Kirio.
Future changes to arbitration provision. If Kirio makes any changes to the Dispute Resolutions and Arbitration section of these Terms & Conditions (other than a change to the address at which Kirio will receive notices of dispute, opt-out notices, or rejections of future changes to the Dispute Resolution and Arbitration section), you may reject any such change by sending Kirio written notice within 30 days of the change. It is not necessary to send us a rejection of a future change to the Dispute Resolution and Arbitration section of these Terms & Conditions if you had properly opted out of the arbitration and class-action waiver provisions in this section 11 within the first 30 days after you first accepted these Terms & Conditions. If you have not properly opted out of the arbitration and class-action waiver provisions in this section 11, by rejecting a future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this arbitration provision, as modified by any changes you did not reject.
