2.        PROVISION OF BASIC SERVICES

2.1     Characteristics of the Services

(a)      The Pealock Lock is a smart electronic lock designed to protect sporting and other equipment which, in the event of theft, triggers an alarm and calls a pre-specified telephone number (the Alarm Function) and which also enables the location of the object on which the Pealock Lock is attached to be recorded and displayed to the Client on the Pealock Application even when the mobile device is out of Bluetooth range (the GPS Tracking and Communication Function with the Pealock Lock or just the GPS Function).

2.2     Arranging Basic Services

(a)      Basic Services are provided on the basis of each purchase of an original Pealock Lock package and the Client is entitled to use them after completing all of the following steps:

(i)         installation of the Pealock Application on the Client’s mobile device (phone or tablet);

(ii)        pairing the Pealock Lock with the Pealock Application;

(iii)      setting up the Client’s personal profile in the Pealock Application free of charge;

(iv)       activation of the prepaid SIM card included in the original Pealock Lock packaging;

(v)        the Client’s acknowledgement that it has read and agrees to these Terms and Conditions.

(b)     The performance of the steps set out in paragraph (a) (i) – (v) above and the provision of the Basic Services during the Trial Period (as defined in Section 2.3(c) of these Terms and Conditions) is free of charge.

2.3     Activating Functions Supported by Pealock

(a)      The Pealock is supplied with built-in software that enables the use of the GPS Function (the Software), as well as a prepaid SIM card that enables an automatic call to a selected telephone number in the event of an alarm and the display of the Pealock’s location in the Pealock Application.

(b)     The SIM card must be activated before the Pealock Lock can be put into operation. Activation of the SIM card will occur automatically the first time data is transferred from the Pealock Lock to the Pealock Application, with data transfer enabled via the data services on the SIM card (the Data Services).

(c)      Data Services are provided free of charge with the SIM Card supplied as part of the Basic Services for a period of 6 months from the activation of the SIM Card (the Trial Period). After the expiry of the Trial Period, the Customer may decide whether or not to continue to use the GPS Function as part of the Additional Services arrangement. 

(d)     In order to activate the Pealock features, it is necessary to pair the Pealock Application with the Pealock Lock so that the Pealock Lock can communicate with the Client’s personal profile in the Pealock Application, in particular so that the Client can view any notifications from the Pealock Lock in his/her personal profile.

(e)      The Client is prompted to pair the Pealock Application and the Pealock Lock immediately after launching the Pealock Application by following the instructions provided directly in the Pealock Application.

(f)      One mobile device can be paired with multiple Pealock Locks using the “+” button in the Pealock Application settings.

(g)     In order to use the Alarm Function, you must have a credit of at least 200 CZK on your SIM card. The SIM card included in the original package has a pre-paid credit of 200 CZK, which can be further increased in the Pealock Application as part of the purchase of Additional Services.

(h)     For the smooth functioning of the Pealock Lock, it is essential to have the current version of the Pealock Application downloaded at all times.

PROVISION OF ADDITIONAL SERVICES

3.1     General Information

(a)      The Pealock Application contains up-to-date information on Additional Services that the Client can use, for example, to use the Alarm Function after the SIM Card credit has been exhausted, to extend the period of use of the GPS Function after the Trial Period

(b)     Pealock shall be entitled to supplement or modify the scope of the Additional Services provided. The current list of Additional Services, the terms and conditions for their arrangement and use are set out in the Pealock Application.

(c)      These Terms and Conditions do not limit Pealock’s ability to allow Clients to use Additional Services on individually agreed terms.

3.2     Use of the GPS Tracking Function and Communication with Pealock After the Trial Period

(a)      The GPS Tracking and Communication Function with Pealock Lock enables the current location of Pealock Lock to be determined and further visualised in the Client’s personal profile in the Pealock Application, and also ensures communication between Pealock Lock and the Pealock Application outside the Bluetooth range.

(b)     Determination of the location of the Pealock Lock is only possible at the moment when:

(i)         the activation of the Pealock Lock, i.e. when the Pealock Lock is switched on; or

(c)      During the triggering of the GPS Function, data regarding the current location of the Pealock Lock is shared with the Client’s registered personal profile in the Pealock Application, whereby when the Pealock Lock is activated, it is a one-time data transfer and when the alarm is triggered, data regarding the location of the Pealock Lock is transferred repeatedly every 3 seconds.

(d)     For the avoidance of doubt, Pealock expressly states that it is not the direct provider of the Data Services and only allows the Client to use them as part of the provision of the Basic Services and, after the Trial Period, as part of the Additional Services. The provision of Data Services is governed by the contractual terms and conditions of the electronic communications service provider as defined in Act No. 127/2005 Coll., the Act on the Provision of Electronic Communications Services, as amended.
