Section 2. DEVICE USAGE

7. SenseAware devices must be properly packaged and labeled as set forth herein. Customer is responsible for any fines or penalties resulting from improper packaging or labeling.

8. Customer is responsible for ensuring that the SenseAware devices are adequately charged before a journey. FedEx will not be liable for any diminution of service resulting from inadequate battery power.

9. SenseAware-equipped shipments must be packaged in appropriate boxes or tubes. SenseAware devices may not be shipped in envelopes of any kind (this includes FedEx® Envelopes or FedEx® Paks) because such materials cannot ensure adequate device protection.

10. Customer is responsible for proper placement of the SenseAware device within the package. FedEx will not be liable for any diminution of service resulting from improper device placement, including without limitation obstruction of device sensors. See SenseAware User Guide for more information on packaging recommendations.

11. Shipments containing SenseAware devices must be labeled to indicate that the shipment contains a GPS-tracking device. A FedEx-provided SenseAware packaging label on the outside of the package in the upper left corner satisfies this requirement.

12. Due to the lithium battery present in the device, placing more than two devices in a single FedEx Express® package without properly classifying the shipment under the appropriate IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations is prohibited.

13. SenseAware devices and senseaware.com may not be used for or in the furtherance of any illegal or improper activity.

14. SenseAware devices and senseaware.com are intended only to be used for tracking shipments and assets, and they are not to be used for tracking individuals.

Section 3. AVAILABILITY OF SERVICE

15. FedEx shall use commercially reasonable efforts to make the SenseAware Program available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, except for: (a) planned downtime (which FedEx shall schedule from time to time to the extent practicable during the weekend hours from 6:00 p.m. Central time Friday to 3:00 a.m. Central time Monday) or (b) any unavailability caused by circumstances beyond FedEx’s reasonable control, including without limitation, acts of God, acts of government, flood, fire, earthquakes, or other natural disasters, civil unrest, acts of terror, strikes or other labor problems, or Internet, satellite, or wireless network service provider failures or delays, or lack of cellular coverage or cellular interference caused by Customer’s operational activities.

16. FedEx will be required to provide the Program only in accordance with applicable laws and government regulation.

Section 4. HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE MAINTENANCE

FedEx will not be liable for any diminution of service resulting from improper cleaning or maintenance. See SenseAware User Guide for more information.

19. SenseAware devices require firmware and software updates from SenseAware to run properly; these updates may occur automatically and without notice. If devices cannot receive automatic updates, Customer is responsible for making devices available for updating. Devices that do not receive updates may stop working. FedEx will not be liable for any diminution of service resulting from failed updates if the failure was due to Customer’s action or inaction. See SenseAware User Guide for more information on updates.
