Our Services include sale of GPS tracking-related devices (“Product(s)”), such as for your vehicles and assets. We also provide a mobile app software-as-a-service platform (“Platform”), to exclusively support the Products, accessible to users that have an active subscription and minimum system requirements, such as an operating system version.
You represent and warrant that you will comply with all applicable laws and these Terms in using the Services, including the Products and Platform. You must not use the Services for any unlawful or malicious purposes. You agree to be fully responsible for your legal compliance and obtaining any necessary consent. It may be illegal to place a tracking device on a person or property that is not yours. You should consult an attorney if you have questions. Optimus will not be responsible in any way for how any customer uses the Services or for any lost property or damages of any kind during the use of the Services.
Dispute Resolution and Mandatory Arbitration
This is an “Arbitration Agreement” waiving your right to a jury trial and class action.
What is arbitration?
Legal disputes are usually resolved in a court of law in front of a judge and, sometimes, a jury. Court cases are a matter of public record. Arbitration is a less formal and more private way of resolving disputes. Instead of going to court, the parties give their arguments and evidence to an arbitrator, and the arbitrator decides who “wins” the case by applying the law in the same way that a judge would. Instead of a courtroom, arbitrations are generally held in a private office, such as a conference room, or by videoconference.
What is our Arbitration Agreement?
Our Services are intended for customers in the United States (“US”). This Arbitration Agreement applies to US customers and to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law. If you reside outside the US, you may have the right to initiate a dispute in your location of residence under the laws where you reside.
How will the arbitration work?
The arbitration must be filed and conducted through JAMS (www.jamsadr.com), which is a provider of arbitration services in the United States and internationally. JAMS’ Streamlined Rules will apply. All claims, remedies, and defenses that you or we have under applicable law (whether federal, state, or local) will remain available. Each of us will participate in choosing a neutral arbitrator using the process in the Streamlined Rules. Unless you waive this requirement, the final arbitration hearing (which is like a trial) will take place in person at the JAMS facility closest to your home. The arbitrator’s award will consist of a written statement explaining the arbitrator’s decision on each claim. The award will also include a concise written statement of the findings of fact and conclusions of law on which the award is based. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so.
What law will the arbitrator follow?
The laws of Florida govern these Terms. The arbitrator will apply Florida law to the claims in the arbitration. This Arbitration Agreement will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. If you reside outside the US, the laws in your location may grant broader rights.
Who pays for the arbitration?
In most cases, the only fee you will have to pay to JAMS is $250; we will pay all other arbitration costs. However, if the arbitrator decides that you filed your claim in bad faith and without any legal basis, the arbitrator can require you to pay more of the fees for the arbitration, other than attorneys’ fees. Regardless of who wins, you will be responsible for paying your attorneys’ fees, and we will be responsible for paying ours. The only exception is if the claim is brought under a law, which the arbitrator may apply, that specifically allows a party to recover its attorneys’ fees.
When will a court will get involved?
There are things an arbitrator cannot do, like order a party to act or stop doing something—this is known as “equitable relief”—or rule upon certain small claims actions. Either one of us can go to court and seek this relief, including by filing a motion to compel the other party to honor the Arbitration Agreement. However, you and we agree that the only courts where we will seek equitable relief—or file any legal proceeding outside of arbitration—are the state and federal courts in Sheridan, Florida. This exception does not waive our Arbitration Agreement.
Can I file a class action?
No. You and we agree that we will only file claims against each other individually and not as a plaintiff or class member in a representative proceeding. THIS MEANS CLASS ACTIONS ARE NOT ALLOWED.
User Accounts, Content, and Fees
You must create an account (your “Account”) to access certain parts of the Services. You must only provide complete and accurate information in connection with your Account. This means you cannot set up your Account in a manner that impersonates another person or business. If you violate these Terms, we may terminate your Account and delete your Content. It is up to you to ensure your username and password are secure. You agree not to share your Account login details with anyone else. If you believe your Account has been accessed without your permission, you should immediately notify us.

You hereby grant to Optimus, and any parties acting on its behalf, a non-exclusive, royalty-free, worldwide license to reproduce, distribute, and otherwise use and display your Content and perform all acts with respect to Content as may be reasonable for Optimus to provide the Services to you.

Optimus reserves the right to interrupt the Services for planned or unplanned maintenance, system updates, or any other changes. Optimus will undertake efforts to notify you of any pre-planned outages but makes no guarantee to do so.
Subject to applicable laws, Optimus may also decide to suspend or terminate the Services altogether. If the Services are terminated, Optimus will reasonably cooperate to enable you to withdraw your Content or information in accordance with applicable laws.
Optimus will not be liable or responsible for any interruption of the Services. You are responsible for backing up your own Content and any other data.
Product and Platform Subscription Fees
You agree to pay all applicable fees, which are displayed during the purchase and checkout process, and which may include taxes, costs, charges, and service or delivery fees. All payments are independently processed through a third-party service provider.
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, subscriptions automatically renew for the same length term unless adequately cancelled before the next renewal deadline. The fees will be the same as the prior term, unless we have given notice of an increase, in which case the increase will be effective upon the renewal. Termination, suspension, or expiration do not impact your obligation to pay all fees owed. You may only cancel a subscription effective at the end of the given term; if you cancel before the end of the subscription term, you will be charged the entire remaining amount of subscription fees. No refunds are made if you do not cancel your subscription before the payment has been made.

If we act in response to your Infringement Notice—such as by removing the Infringing Content—we will pass on your Infringement Notice to the user to provide an opportunity to respond. Counter notices should be emailed and comply with the DMCA.
