Thank you for using our Brave Buttons.
The Brave Buttons, underlying technology, enclosures and all related services and systems (collectively the “Buttons”) are provided by Brave Technology Coop. (“Brave,” “we,” or “us”) to you, your building manager, owner or other service provider (“Provider”). The Buttons provide a tool for direct communication between you and Provider (as defined below), and/or you and Request Users (as defined below). It may also include direct communications between you and Brave, its employees, directors, officers, members, affiliates and agents.
1. The Button: The Buttons are leased to Providers and remain the property of Brave throughout the application of these Terms. Brave will instruct the Provider regarding the proper use of the Button installation and maintenance. The Button shall not be considered a fixture or part of the realty, and Provider shall not permit the attachment thereto of any apparatus not furnished by Brave.
2. Rental, Monitoring and Service Charges. The annual subscription fee will begin per the terms of the proposal attached. The contract will automatically renew unless either party gives written notice of its intention to terminate pursuant to these Terms. Failure to return all equipment in satisfactory working condition will result in a charge to Provider and Provider will be billed at the prices set forth in the proposal until returned in good working order. You agree to pay all sales, service, property, use and local taxes; any, police, fire department, ambulance or paramedic charges or fees; and any permit fees, telephone charges, return check charges, wire charges, or late charges, if applicable, whether imposed on you or us. We shall have the right, at any time, to increase the services fee to reflect any additional or increased taxes, licenses, permits, fees or charges which may be charged to us by any utility or governmental agency, or any private response agency relating to the Button and you agree to pay the same. In the event that it shall become necessary for us to undertake legal proceedings to collect payments due under these Terms then you agree to pay us our reasonable attorney’s fees for such collection action except where prohibited by law.
3. Provider’s Care of Equipment: Repairs and Additions. Provider agrees not to tamper with or interfere with the normal working conditions of the Button. The Button shall remain in the location approved by us as installed, and we will not be responsible for any damage caused by unauthorized intrusion to the premises, lighting, or electrical surge, except for ordinary repair and replacement.
4. CELLULAR AND/OR WIRELESS INTERNET COVERAGE. The ability of the Button to dispatch support is dependent upon the availability of cellular network and/or wireless internet coverage depending upon your location. The Button will function only in areas, locations and buildings where such service is available. If such service is unavailable or unreliable, the Button may not function or perform as intended. In such event, the Provider may be unable to communicate your location to a Supporter, and a Supporter may not be able to locate you.
5. FALSE ALARMS AND ABUSE OF SERVICE. You agree that you and others using the Button will use it carefully so as to avoid causing false alarms. False alarms can be caused by forces beyond our control.
Modifications to these Terms that are editorial in nature or reflect changes in the services we offer will not require new consent. If we ever make material changes to these Terms, we will ask you to consent to the new Terms before they apply to you.

Users acknowledge that the Buttons are intended to bring together Supporters and Request Users to support the prevention of harmful drug overdose and provide access to emergency services and/or community support in the event of an overdose or other drug related injury or illness. We have limited control over the people that will respond to requests for support (“Supporters”), and we cannot guarantee that Supporters will be able to provide the support requested or required by people that request support through the Buttons (“Request Users”), either in time to prevent harm, or at all. Neither we, the Provider nor Supporters are liable for any failure to respond to an attempted use of the Buttons, whether caused by technological error, human failure, oversight or any other reason whatsoever on our part, that of Provider, Supporters or Request Users, or the consequences that may result from either. Further, we have no control over and cannot guarantee that a Request User will receive adequate or successful assistance from a Supporter.
While we cannot guarantee effective support, please know that we are committed to the community we are building. We are working hard to provide Request Users the support they need and encourage and welcome all Users’ feedback and suggestions. We will build better services together, so let us know what’s working well and what can be improved.

The Request Users location will be used and shared in the event that emergency services or community support is needed. Where appropriate Request Users agree to share all necessary information with Supporters including the substance being used, type of use (recreational or maintenance), whether the Request User has Naloxone with them, and any other information that is requested by the Supporter and reasonably related to providing the best support possible to the Request User.
Supporters may be volunteers, Brave team members, Provider team members or other Request Users. Supporters agree to respond to calls from Request Users when they are active on the Button system.

If you have a complaint, question, or dispute (collectively, “dispute”) regarding the Buttons, you are encouraged to bring it to our attention. You may email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will try to address your concerns. If we are unable to resolve a dispute through direct, amicable, frank, open and honest communication, such dispute shall be submitted to Brave’s dispute resolution process as set forth below:
In the event of a dispute between a non-member and Brave concerning any matter arising out of the non-members use of the Buttons, which cannot be resolved through direct, amicable, frank, open and honest communication, upon request of either party, the matter shall be set for mediation, to be conducted by a single member of Brave’s Dispute Resolution Committee (as defined in Brave’s Rules), selected by the mutual agreement of the disputing parties. If the parties to a dispute are unable to agree with respect to the selection of a mediator, then Brave’s Dispute Resolution Committee (the “Committee”) shall select a mediator, from among the Committee.
If mediation is incapable of resolving the dispute, upon request of either party and ten (10) days’ prior notice to the non-requesting party, the matter shall be set for hearing before a three (3) person panel of the Committee, which shall conduct the hearing, enter written findings, and make a recommendation to the full five (5) member banc of the Committee. The decision of the full banc of the Committee in such cases shall be final; provided, however, that either party may submit the dispute for arbitration in accordance with the following provision.
In the event that the Committee has failed to resolve the dispute, the aggrieved party may within sixty (60) days thereafter submit the dispute to confidential arbitration in Vancouver, British Columbia except that to the extent you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate our intellectual property rights, we may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any federal or state court. Arbitration under these Terms shall be conducted in accordance with the prevailing rules and procedures of the Canadian Arbitration Association, with each party being responsible for its own costs and fees, and the joint costs of arbitration being shared equally by the parties. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, no arbitration or claim under these Terms may be joined to any other arbitration or claim, including any arbitration or other legal proceeding involving any other current or former user of the Buttons, and no class action proceedings will be permitted.
By agreeing to the dispute resolution process in these Terms, you understand and agree that you are relinquishing (i) any right to pursue claims or have disputes resolved in a court of law and (ii) any right to the appeal of any adverse arbitration decision.
You agree that, regardless of any law or statute, any claim or cause of action you may have against us must be brought within one year after the claim or cause of action arises or is known or should reasonably have been known to you, or the claim or cause of action will be forever barred.
If you have any concerns, inquiries, or complaints about the Buttons, please write to us at email@example.com. We appreciate your input.
Thank you for using the Brave Buttons and creating a safe and trusting community for Support and Request Users.
