If you are registering for an account, you confirm that all information and details you provide to us are true, accurate and up to date.

Your Use of The App

The App is made available to download free of charge. You may discontinue using the App at any time. You are responsible for making all arrangements necessary for you to have access to the App. For the App to work properly, your device(s) need to meet the technical requirements specified in the relevant app store. You accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or from your computer or device. We endeavor to use reasonable security measures to protect against unauthorized access to your account. We cannot, however, guarantee security of your account, your content or the personal information you provide, and we cannot promise that our security measures will prevent third-party “hackers” from illegally accessing the App or its contents. You agree to immediately notify Specialized of any unauthorized use or your account or password, or any other breach of security, and to accept all risks of unauthorized access to your content and any other information you provide to Specialized.

You may only use the App for lawful purposes. In addition, you may not:

  • use the App in a way which infringes the rights of anyone else or restricts or inhibits anyone else's use or enjoyment of the App;
  • use the App in any way that interrupts, damages, impairs or renders the App less efficient;
  • copy, modify, reverse-engineer, decompile, disassemble, alter or otherwise tamper with any software (including source code), databases and other technology that forms part of the App (or authorise, encourage or assist any other person to do so);
  • knowingly transmit any data that contains viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time-bombs, keystroke loggers, spyware, adware or any other harmful programme or similar computer code designed to adversely affect the operation of any computer software or hardware; and / or
  • penetrate or attempt to penetrate the App's security measures;
  • introduce anything which alter the performance of the App or any of our products.

Your Access to The App

We do not guarantee that the App, or any content on it, will always be available or uninterrupted (and we may decide to suspend, withdraw or supersede it as described in these Terms of Use).

We may suspend, withdraw or discontinue your access to the App (including disabling any account details or password as part our security procedures), or any part of it, if you have breached any term of these Terms of Use. Where possible, we will give you notice of our intention to do this, and give you an opportunity to appeal.

The App is controlled by Specialized from its offices within the United States of America. Specialized makes no representation that the App is appropriate or available for use in other countries, or whether access is illegal or prohibited. Those who choose to access the App from locations outside of the United States and Europe do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws. You may not use or export the content in violation of U.S. export laws and regulations. We use encryption software to ensure secure communication to our servers. In particular, we use Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTPS) and OpenSSL to securely transport information. The use of encryption may not be allowed by local law. You are responsible to ensure the use of encryption is legal and accepted in your country or locality. If you have any questions on the use of encryption in your country or locality, please check with your local retailer or [email protected].

Location Services and Features

You will need to have 'location services' enabled on your device(s) to be able to use many of the App's features. While 'location services' remain enabled, the App will also collect and use data about your location in order to provide you with more relevant and personalised information. You may turn this feature off in your device's 'settings', however if you do so some of the App's functionality and features will no longer be available to you. Please see our Privacy Policy for more information on how we collect and use data about your location.

Intellectual Property Rights

We are the owner or licensee of all intellectual property rights in respect of the App and in all data, material and content published on it.

Your use of the App and software grants you no rights in relation to our, or our licensors', intellectual property rights.

In return for your acceptance of these Terms of Use, we grant you a non-exclusive, on-going license to download, display and use the App on any device(s) that you own or control. This license is for your personal use only (meaning it may not be used for commercial use or gain) and is non-transferrable (meaning it cannot be given to anyone else). This license ends without notice when you no longer have the App installed on your device(s), or otherwise when we tell you we are terminating it on reasonable notice.

You grant Specialized a non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual right to use your content in any manner or media now or later developed, for any purpose, commercial, advertising, or otherwise, including the right to translate, display, reproduce, modify, create derivative works, sublicense, distribute, assign, publicly perform, and otherwise exploit such content on the App for the purposes of providing and promoting the App and our products as well as the features and services available on the App, and delivering services to you or promotional materials or opportunities to you.

Updates and Upgrades

From time to time, we may need to deploy or provide patches, updates, upgrades, additional content or other modifications to the App (for example for maintenance, enhancements, to add or remove features, resolve software bugs or address security concerns).

These updates and upgrades may result in the App being temporarily unavailable. In certain circumstances, we may need to suspend, withdraw or disable the App for longer periods while we deploy these updates and upgrades. We will always try and give you notice of this, but it may not be possible in all cases (for example for reasons beyond our control, or if there is an emergency security issue). The default setting in the App is that these updates and upgrades will automatically be deployed. You may turn this setting off via the App 'settings', although we would always recommend that you have the latest version of the App installed. If you do not install any update or up-grade then all of the functionality and features of the App may not be available to you.

Although we take reasonable precautions to prevent the existence of computer viruses and/or other malicious programs in the App, we cannot guarantee that there will not be any and we will not be responsible if we are claimed to be the source.

We will also not be liable to you for any period(s) when the App or any feature of the App is unavailable to you for any reason.
