1. Service requirements and service providers.
To use this App and the Hyundai Auto Link services, your Hyundai vehicle (“Vehicle”) must come, or be fitted, with an authorised Hyundai Auto Link device (the “Hyundai Auto Link Device”), which is the equipment, including hardware, firmware and software, used to provide the Hyundai Auto Link services (the “Hyundai Auto Link Service”) to you in respect of your Vehicle. In order to use this App to receive the Hyundai Auto Link Service, you will need a compatible mobile device such as a smartphone with Bluetooth connectivity. You are responsible for any fees that you incur in connection with your use of this App (including when updating the hardware, firmware and software, both in your Vehicle and the App). Contact your telecommunications service provider for more information regarding data rates and fees. The proper operation of the Hyundai Auto Link Service may be affected by the settings (including settings relating to location services), configuration or features of your mobile device, and by the coverage or quality of the telecommunications services that you have purchased in conjunction with your mobile device. We are not responsible for any limitations, restrictions, features or effects of your mobile device or the relevant telecommunications services.
The Hyundai Auto Link Service is provided to you by Hyundai and its appointed service providers. Those service providers include any entity that provides any service, equipment, or facilities in connection with the Hyundai Auto Link Service or the Hyundai Auto Link Device, including, but not limited to, wireless service providers, underlying wireless carriers, suppliers, emergency responders, and are referred to as “Service Provider(s)”. Hyundai may interact with and/or engage one or more Service Providers as necessary to provide the Hyundai Auto Link Services.
2. Service activation, duration and cancellation.
Your Hyundai Auto Link Service starts after you have accepted this Agreement and provided all of the necessary information required to start providing the Hyundai Auto Link Service or when you (or another user or occupant of your Vehicle) use the Hyundai Auto Link Service or accept any of its benefits.
Your Hyundai Auto Link Service starts as set out above and unless and until it is cancelled by you or us as allowed in this Agreement.
C. Your cancellation rights.
You may cancel your Hyundai Auto Link Service at any time. To cancel your Hyundai Auto Link Service, you will need to e-mail us at email@example.com in order for us to arrange to remove the Auto Link Device from your vehicle. You should then also delete the App from your mobile device.
D. Our cancellation and suspension rights.
We may cancel your Hyundai Auto Link Service without cause, in which case we will give you notice 30 days prior to the effective date of cancellation, after which your Hyundai Auto Link Service will terminate. This means that we can decide to cease providing the Hyundai Auto Link Service to you at any time and for any reason, even for reasons unrelated to you. Additionally, we may cancel your Hyundai Auto Link Service without prior notice to you if we have received information that establishes you are no longer the owner/lessee of your Vehicle (unless you have informed us beforehand that (i) you intend to transfer the Hyundai Auto Link Device, and (ii) the intended transferee), if you breach any part of this Agreement, interfere with our efforts to provide the Hyundai Auto Link Service, interfere with our business, if use of the Hyundai Auto Link Service could cause loss or harm to any person, or if your Hyundai Auto Link Service or wireless phone number is used for illegal or improper purposes. We may suspend your Hyundai Auto Link Service for any reason instead of cancelling it, including if we suspect your Hyundai Auto Link Service is being used for any purpose that would allow us to cancel it.
3. Different users or drivers of the same Vehicle fitted with a Hyundai Auto Link Device.
Any number of drivers, users or occupants of the same Vehicle which has been fitted with a Hyundai Auto Link Device may utilise the Hyundai Auto Link Service provided that the App has been downloaded onto their mobile device and the mobile device has been paired to the Vehicle. However, only one mobile device can be paired to a Vehicle fitted with a Hyundai Auto Link Device at any one time. You are solely responsible for any use of Hyundai Auto Link Service in your Vehicle, even if you are not the one using it and even if you later claim the use was not authorised.
