Subscription to the COYOTE Service implies the Customer's choice of one of the Subscription Plans available, described in Appendix 1.

1.2 End of the Free Period

If none of the Subscription Plans are subscribed to or paid for, the COYOTE Terminal will automatically be unusable.

1.3 Territory

The subscription to the COYOTE Service is valid for France. Driver assistance systems are prohibited in certain countries. The Customer must comply with the legislation in force with regard to this matter and bears sole responsibility for using the device as the law prescribes.

If the Customer wishes the performance of the COYOTE Service to begin before the end of the withdrawal period, they shall expressly request COYOTE SYSTEM to do so, accepting the start of the COYOTE Service.

COYOTE SYSTEM shall reimburse any excess received under these conditions pro rata temporis to actual use. COYOTE SYSTEM will pay this refund using the same means of payment as that used by the Customer for the initial transaction, unless the Customer expressly agrees to another means of payment and provided that the refund does not incur costs for the Customer.

For this reason the Customer expressly authorises COYOTE SYSTEM to retain their bank details, the time of exercising the right of withdrawal, and beyond if no withdrawal is declared (cf. Article 13 below).

The SIM card provided to the Customer is the property of COYOTE SYSTEM. The Customer agrees not to copy, sell, transfer, misappropriate, rent, destroy or impair the SIM card throughout the term of the Agreement. At the end of the Agreement, the SIM card will be deactivated by COYOTE SYSTEM.

COYOTE SYSTEM provides the Customer with a "My Account" area on the COYOTE Website, allowing them to see the status of their subscription and to manage it.

The activation times of the Service are subject to the diligence of mobile telephone operators, for which COYOTE SYSTEM is not responsible.

The Customer must ensure that their Equipment, installation, use and maintenance comply with the vehicle manufacturers' instructions.

 

4.2 COYOTE App

The COYOTE App is a downloadable application on any mobile online sales platform offering it, independent of COYOTE SYSTEM.

Use of the COYOTE App requires subscription to the COYOTE Service from the Coyote Website or the mobile online sales platform.

When the Customer subscribes to the COYOTE Service from the mobile online sales platform, the conditions defined by the latter are applicable.

The COYOTE App gives free access to the COYOTE Service to any owner of a COYOTE Terminal by entering their login details (e-mail address or user name and password), provided that the Customer has paid their subscription.

In particular, in the case of direct debit, the Customer undertakes to update their bank details or their bank card number before the 20th of the month in question in writing, including all necessary supporting documents (in particular the new bank identity statement) so that COYOTE SYSTEM can update the SEPA direct debit mandate.

FOR ANY SUBSCRIPTION FOR A PERIOD LONGER THAN ONE MONTH, PAID MONTHLY, THE CUSTOMER EXPRESSLY ACCEPTS THAT COYOTE SYSTEM RETAINS THEIR BANK DETAILS TO ENSURE THESE DIRECT DEBITS.

The Customer undertakes to provide COYOTE SYSTEM with their contact details (full name, Customer number) in all correspondence in order to enable their requests to be authenticated and processed. Any incomplete request shall not be processed by COYOTE SYSTEM.

ARTICLE 7 – CUSTOMER'S OBLIGATIONS

7.1 Compliance with requirements

The Customer undertakes to comply with all requirements relating to the configuration and use of the COYOTE Terminal and to refer to its documentation as necessary.

The Customer shall be solely responsible for any incorrect configuration or improper use of the COYOTE Terminal.

If necessary, the COYOTE Terminal documentation is available on the COYOTE Website.

7.2 Payment of the subscription

The Customer shall be responsible for the correct payment of the COYOTE Terminal price and their subscription.

The Customer may view their "My Account" area in order to see all new messages and information from COYOTE SYSTEM, and in particular to view COYOTE SYSTEM's monthly invoices for payments by monthly direct debit.

COYOTE SYSTEM reserves the right to change the subscription fee for any new contractual period. COYOTE SYSTEM shall then inform the Customer of the fee increase at least 1 (one) month before the end of the current contractual period. The Customer shall have the option of accepting or refusing the new rate. If they accept it, the new rate will be applicable over the new contractual period. If they refuse, the Agreement shall be terminated at the end of the current contractual period.

In the event of a payment incident, the Customer shall be required to reimburse COYOTE SYSTEM for the amount of bank charges it has had to bear, as well as any late payment interest from the due date of the unpaid invoice.

7.3 Updates

COYOTE SYSTEM may carry out remote updates to the software embedded in the COYOTE Terminal in accordance with the provisions of the End User Licence Agreement in Appendix 4.

Generally speaking, COYOTE SYSTEM reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to change the technical specifications of the COYOTE Terminal and the COYOTE Service as well as the communication technology used for the COYOTE Service at its own expense.

COYOTE SYSTEM also provides legislative maintenance for the Terminal and the COYOTE Service, consisting in upgrading them to ensure that they comply with regulations and/or the wishes of public authorities.

These changes cannot be invoked as grounds for termination of the COYOTE Service by the Customer.

 

ARTICLE 8 – COYOTE SYSTEM'S OBLIGATIONS

COYOTE SYSTEM undertakes to ensure the COYOTE Service functions correctly and to take the necessary measures to maintain the continuity and quality of this Service.

It is expressly agreed that the functioning of the COYOTE Service is in particular based on technologies developed and operated by third parties, and that COYOTE SYSTEM has no means of intervening in these operations. COYOTE SYSTEM is therefore not obliged to provide the COYOTE Service in the event of the failure of the GSM or GPS networks, or in the event of force majeure understood in particular to mean strikes, bad weather, wars, embargoes, failures of the electricity network, the internet, satellites or a failure by mobile telephone operators to fulfil their obligations.

Furthermore, the COYOTE Service may be temporarily unavailable upon instruction from or requisition by the authorities.

The Customer states that they are aware that GSM data networks (2G, 3G, 4G, etc.) of mobile telephone operators are continuously under development, that there are also zones in which GPS satellite signals cannot be detected (tunnels, canyon effects in cities and mountain areas), and that it is therefore possible that certain areas of the country may not be covered by these networks and access to the COYOTE Service will be disrupted as a result.

 

ARTICLE 9 – LIABILITY

COYOTE SYSTEM shall not be held liable if the non-performance or improper performance of the Agreement is attributable to the Customer or to constraints beyond COYOTE SYSTEM's control as set out below.

Furthermore, the Customer declares that they are aware that the operation of the COYOTE Service is based in part on information provided to COYOTE SYSTEM by Customers, as well as by third parties, in particular with regard to the indication of speed limits and other reminders of road traffic regulations. As a result, COYOTE SYSTEM will not be held responsible under any circumstances if the information provided by Customers or third parties is incomplete, out of date or false.

Using the COYOTE Terminal does not under any circumstances exonerate the Customer from the scrupulous observation of road traffic laws. The Customer accepts that the COYOTE Terminal is not a substitute for the observation of road traffic regulations and that COYOTE SYSTEM will not be held liable for any violations committed by the Customer.

COYOTE SYSTEM cannot under any circumstances be held liable for any indirect damage suffered by the Customer when using the COYOTE Service, including operating losses and commercial damage and, more generally, any damage that does not result exclusively and directly from a failure on the part of COYOTE SYSTEM.

In any event, COYOTE SYSTEM's liability under the Agreement shall not exceed the amount paid by the Customer during the last 12 (twelve) months.

ARTICLE 10 – AFTER-SALES SUPPORT

ARTICLE 11 – SOFTWARE

The use of the software embedded in the COYOTE Terminal is subject to the Customer's acceptance of the End User Licence Agreement set out in Appendix 2.


ARTICLE 12 – LEGAL WARRANTY – OPTIONAL WARRANTY EXTENSION

12.1 Legal warranty

The Customer enjoys the legal warranty relating to defects of the item sold under the conditions provided for in Articles 1641 to 1649 and 2232 of the Civil Code, and, when they are the consumer, from the warranty of conformity mentioned in Articles L.217-4 to 217-13 of the Consumer Code, subject to more favourable local laws (outside France) of the consumer's place of residence.

The legal warranty is not due in the event of breakage, dropping, improper use, oxidation, modification or repair not carried out by the after-sales services designated by COYOTE SYSTEM.

Consumer Code (when the Customer can be considered a consumer):

The seller is obliged to deliver an item in conformity with the agreement and is liable for any lack of conformity existing at the time of delivery.

It shall also be liable for defects in conformity resulting from packaging, assembly instructions or installation where the latter has been placed at its expense by the agreement or has been carried out under its responsibility.

To be in conformity with the agreement, the item must:

1. Be fit for the use usually expected of a similar item and, where applicable:

- correspond to the description given by the seller and possess the qualities that it presented to the buyer in the form of a sample or model;

- have the qualities that a buyer may legitimately expect in view of public statements made by the seller, the producer or its representative, in particular in advertising or labelling;

2. Or have the characteristics defined by mutual agreement between the parties or be suitable for any special use sought by the buyer, brought to the seller's attention and accepted by the latter.

The action resulting from the lack of conformity shall lapse after two years from the delivery of the item.

The Customer has a period of two years from delivery of the item to act and may choose between repair or replacement of the item, subject to the cost conditions provided for in Article L.217-9 of the Consumer Code.

The Customer is exempted from proving the existence of the lack of conformity of the item during the twenty-four months following delivery of the item.

The legal warranty of conformity applies independently of the commercial warranty defined in Article 13.2 below.

The Customer may decide to assert the warranty against hidden defects of the item sold within the meaning of Article 1641 of the Civil Code and that in this case, they may choose between cancellation of the sale or a reduction of the sale price in accordance with Article 1644 of the Civil Code.

Civil Code:

The seller is bound by the warranty in respect of hidden defects of the item sold which make it unfit for the use for which it is intended, or which diminish this use to such an extent that the buyer would not have acquired it, or would have paid only a lower price, if they had been aware of the defects.

The buyer must file the action arising from latent defects within two years of discovering the defect.

12.2 Premium Service: extended warranty for COYOTE Terminals (OPTIONAL)

The Customer may take out an extension of the COYOTE Terminal warranty (Premium Service) beyond the legal warranty, against payment of a fixed price, the amount of which is indicated on the COYOTE Website before order confirmation, under the following conditions.

The Customer may take out such extended warranty when purchasing the Terminal or within 30 days following activation of the COYOTE Terminal provided that their account is not in default at the time of taking out this warranty.

The Premium Service is only valid in metropolitan France.

The warranty takes effect from the date of subscription for a period ending at the end of the fourth year from the date of delivery of the COYOTE Terminal.

The extended warranty is attached to the COYOTE Terminal for which it was taken out or to the COYOTE Terminal that would have been exchanged under the legal warranty or extended warranty.

Once the extended warranty has been taken out, COYOTE SYSTEM undertakes to replace (with an equivalent reconditioned product) the faulty COYOTE Terminal within three working days from the date of receipt of the COYOTE Terminal at the COYOTE SYSTEM repair centre or immediately at Coyote Stores (subject to availability in stock).

The faulty COYOTE Terminal must be returned by the Customer, at their expense, in sufficiently protective packaging, with its SIM card.

This warranty is applicable in the event of failure of the COYOTE Terminal (not caused by a fall or breakage (in particular of the internal USB), oxidation, modification or repair not carried out by the after-sales services designated by COYOTE SYSTEM, or improper use (for example use of a charger other than the one provided)), and as long as the Customer holds a subscription to the COYOTE Service and is up to date with their payments. This warranty is applicable only if it was taken out before the failure occurred.

Pursuant to Article L.217-16 of the Consumer Code, during the course of the commercial warranty which was granted to them at the time of acquisition or repair of a tangible good, when the buyer asks the seller for a refurbishment covered by the warranty, any period of at least seven days in which the goods were unusable shall be added to the remaining period of the warranty. This period runs from the date of the buyer's request for action or the making available for repair of the good in question, if this making available is subsequent to the request for action.

12.3 Repairs beyond the warranty period

Beyond the legal warranty and if no extended warranty as set out in Article 12.2 has been taken out, any repair of a COYOTE Terminal will be the subject of a preliminary estimate by COYOTE SYSTEM according to the fixed prices defined by COYOTE SYSTEM in force on the day of the Customer's request.

12.4 Availability of spare parts required to use the Terminal

According to the information issued by the manufacturer or importer of the COYOTE SYSTEM Terminal, spare parts essential to the use of the Terminal will be available for two years following the sale to the Customer, unless distribution of the Terminal is ceased. If spare parts are not available during the warranty period, the Terminal will be replaced free of charge after return of the Terminal by the Customer to COYOTE SYSTEM or its service provider designated by COYOTE SYSTEM, and after a lack of conformity is found.

 

ARTICLE 13 – DATA PROTECTION

COYOTE SYSTEM undertakes to protect the Customer's personal data.

COYOTE SYSTEM only has access to the last known position of the Customer's vehicle. Previous geolocation data are anonymously integrated by COYOTE SYSTEM into a database operated by COYOTE SYSTEM. COYOTE SYSTEM never communicates personal or geolocation data to third parties, unless required by law.

The downloading and functioning of the COYOTE App requires access to and transmission of certain elements such as your SIM card information (presence and card number) and IMSI. The App also offers the option of using speech recognition and to access your contacts directly from it as well to access your contacts in order to start navigation to your contact; voice and contacts are not stored.

Android may also ask to access the Coyote Overlay (optional).

The Customer also has the right to object, for legitimate reasons, to the processing of their personal data. Such objection will however make performance of the Agreement impossible. In this case, the monthly fees will remain due by the Customer, who will no longer be able to use the COYOTE Service.

The Customer may exercise these rights by sending a letter together with proof of identity to the following address: COYOTE SYSTEM – Data Protection and Liberties – 25, quai Gallieni – 92150 SURESNES or by sending a request to gdpr@moncoyote.com.

Bank information is kept during the withdrawal period for the purposes of reimbursement in the event of the right being exercised, for direct debits each month and for a period of three months beyond the expiry of the subscription to the COYOTE Service for recovery purposes.

The storage of bank data is secured and performed by a third-party service provider.

Coyote reserves the right to share customer contact information with partners for non-commercial purposes to solicit their feedback on its products and services. Moreover, the customer may provide their opinion via the private organisation Verified Reviews. These reviews are posted publicly. To do this, and in order to retain the customer's anonymity, only the first name and the first letter of the surname will be used.

The Supplier reserves the right to change the rates of the Plans at any time. Detailed rates are available at moncoyote.com.
