Training Video Transcripts are also available for Elite and Enterprise Technical Support Plans.
2.7 C-DAC Aware License. C-DAC Aware is a software module that enables the CentrAlert system to respond to Common Alerting Protocol (CAP), allowing the Licensee to send specific messages related to any National Weather Service (NWS) or National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) event. Like all other software modules, C-DAC Aware has an initial setup fee that the Licensee pays when they purchase their Designated System. However, since C-DAC Aware receive live NWS and NOAA data, there is also an annual license fee to continue using the service. This license can only be obtained by Licensees with an active Technical Support Plan with a small additional fee being added to the base cost of the Technical Support Plan selected.
2.8 Mobile Guardian Downloads. Every Licensee has the option of including licenses for download of the Mobile Guardian App, which enables the Licensee to access certain features of the Guardian User Interface from their registered mobile device. As with all other CentrAlert Software, Mobile Guardian has an initial setup fee that the Licensee pays when they purchase their Designated System. However, Licensees with Essential Technical Support can get their downloads of Mobile Guardian at a discounted rate, while those with Elite and Enterprise Technical Support receive unlimited Mobile Guardian downloads as part of their Plan.
2.9 Annual System Maintenance Check. For Elite and Enterprise Technical Support Plans, the Licensee can request for a CentrAlert engineer or CentrAlert Certified Technician to conduct an annual maintenance check on their Designated System to ensure system health. This maintenance check is mainly concerned with ensuring that all CentrAlert recommended procedures are being followed so that the Designated System operates at peak efficiency. After evaluating the system, the CentrAlert engineer or CentrAlert Certified Technician will (if necessary) produce a list of recommendations for the Licensee to consider. Annual System Maintenance Checks must be scheduled with CentrAlert Technical Support and must take place during Business Hours.
2.10 Remote Diagnostics.

Remote Diagnostics must be scheduled with CentrAlert Technical Support and must take place during Business Hours.
2.11 Online Training Simulator. For Elite and Enterprise Technical Support Plans, CentrAlert will make available to Licensee its generic Online Training Simulator (Elite Licensees will need to pay an additional fee). This Simulator features a replica of various CentrAlert Software components to enable Licensee to become accustomed to said components before working with the actual CentrAlert Software on their Designated System. Access to the Online Training Simulator must be scheduled with CentrAlert Technical Support and must take place during Business Hours.
2.12 Remote Monitoring. For Enterprise Technical Support Plans, and in the event that the Licensee has multiple Designated Systems that require a central hub to monitor alarm activity, CentrAlert will actively monitor any Central Alarm Server (CAS) to ensure that every Designated System within the Licensee’s network is operating at peak efficiency. Additional fees apply. Call CentrAlert for details.
2.13 Cloud Backup (Disaster Recovery). For Enterprise Technical Support Plans, the CentrAlert cloud will maintain backups of all Licensee files to protect against loss due to natural disaster, equipment failure or other catastrophic event. Additional fees apply. Call CentrAlert for details.
3. Maintenance Updates and Repairs
3.1 Maintenance Updates and Repairs. CentrAlert will make available to Licensee all CentrAlert Software Maintenance Updates and Repairs that are issued and made commercially available to its CentrAlert Software end-user licensees. At Licensee’s request, CentrAlert will provide automatic Email alerts of the existence of such Software Maintenance Updates and Repairs and will provide instructions on how to access said Updates and Repairs. All such Maintenance Updates and Repairs will constitute CentrAlert Software installed on the Designated System by CentrAlert. Periodically, when deemed necessary by CentrAlert at its sole discretion, CentrAlert will furnish Licensee with updated Documentation related to any such CentrAlert Software Maintenance Updates or Repairs installed on Licensee’s Designated System. For Enterprise Technical Support Plans, this extends to Windows Operating System Patch validations where CentrAlert tests said patches against CentrAlert Software in a lab setting to ensure compatibility with Licensee’s CentrAlert Software and Designated System.
3.2 Determination by CentrAlert of Errors Not Resulting from CentrAlert Software. CentrAlert will determine within a reasonable time from the initial notification of a claimed Error or Issue, whether the claimed Error or Issue actually is an Error or Issue of the CentrAlert Software. If the claimed Error or Issue instead results from the Designated System’s hardware, Third-Party Software or some other cause other than an Error or Issue with the CentrAlert Software, CentrAlert will notify Licensee of its findings and will provide triage services to route hardware issues to the appropriate manufacturer so that Licensee can pursue resolution with the appropriate manufacturer or vendor, including, if applicable, a resolution in accordance with that manufacturer’s or vendor’s warranty. If Licensee does not give appropriate notice of a claimed Error or Issue to CentrAlert, or if a claimed Error or Issue is determined to not be a result of the CentrAlert Software, Licensee agrees to reimburse CentrAlert for any costs incurred as a result and to pay CentrAlert at CentrAlert’s standard rates for any of its efforts to resolve the claimed Error or Issue.
3.3 Errors or Issues Resulting from CentrAlert Software. If CentrAlert determines that a claimed Error or Issue is valid and materially alters the performance or functionality of a Designated System, Licensee’s remedy shall be that CentrAlert will use commercially reasonable efforts to resolve, at no cost to the Licensee, such Error or Issue by repairing or replacing the CentrAlert Software within two weeks of the Licensee reporting a Tier Three Issue to CentrAlert or thirty days of the Licensee reporting any other Issue to CentrAlert. Should CentrAlert be unable to resolve the Error or Issue, Licensee may (i) receive a reimbursement for the cost Licensee paid for that portion of work, or (ii) Licensee may terminate these Technical Support Terms and receive a pro-rata refund for any fees paid, or (iii) both (i) and (ii). At CentrAlert’s option, the repair of an Error or Issue may be provided by: (i) the issuance of a Maintenance Update or Repair involving a reasonable “work-around,” which may consist of specific administrative steps or alternative configuration; (ii) the issuance of a Maintenance Update or Repair in the form of an object code patch for the affected portion of the CentrAlert Software, or (iii) uninstalling the CentrAlert Software and reinstalling a new copy of the CentrAlert Software containing the Maintenance Update or Repair needed to resolve the reported Error or Issue. Licensee acknowledges that in order to address an Error or Issue, CentrAlert may require access to the Designated System in Licensee’s possession. Licensee agrees to provide access, assistance and information to CentrAlert as required to resolve an Error or Issue with CentrAlert Software. The access, assistance, and information in the preceding sentence shall be to the extent that such is not prohibited by any third-party agreement or any law, statute, ordinance, governmental agency regulation or similar agency, limiting, restricting, or precluding such access, assistance or information.
3.4 Enhancements. Any Enhancements, whether resulting from interaction with Licensee or otherwise, and any patents related to such Enhancements, are the property of CentrAlert. CentrAlert is not required to provide Enhancements as a Maintenance Update or Repair. CentrAlert may offer Enhancements for immediate sale to Licensee or may wait to release Enhancements as part of a planned CentrAlert Software Upgrade. In no case is CentrAlert under any obligation to release Enhancements at any time.
3.5 Software Replacement. In the event that any media for CentrAlert Software contained within the Designated System incurs damage, whether from acts of nature or human error, CentrAlert shall provide replacements for such Software to Licensee at no additional charge, subject to the terms and conditions of these Technical Support Terms.
3.6 Priority Hardware Replacement. In the event that any piece of CentrAlert-provided hardware associated with the Designated System incurs damage, whether from acts of nature or human error, CentrAlert shall provide a temporary hardware replacement as quickly as possible in order to minimize system downtime. The affected hardware can then be returned to CentrAlert to ascertain whether a repair or replacement is required. NOTE: Priority shipping may not be possible for systems located outside of the contiguous United States. In such cases, equipment will be sent as expeditiously as possible.
3.7 Approved Third-Party Patches and Updates. Manufacturers of Third-Party Software used on networks that communicate with or connect to an Appliance or Appliances, from time to time, publish or release patches and/or updates for their products. Licensee agrees to install only third-party patches and updates approved by CentrAlert, whether such patch or update applies directly to Third-Party Software or to software on a network that communicates with or connects to an Appliance or Appliances. CentrAlert will use reasonable efforts to test the interaction of third-party patches and updates with the CentrAlert Software and will update the list of approved patches and updates from time to time. Use of unapproved third-party patches or updates will void all CentrAlert Software warranties under this Agreement.
4.1 Additional Services. Licensee may, at the discretion of CentrAlert, receive discounts on additional services for CentrAlert Software, including but not limited to system setup, recipe creation, custom reports, and training.
4.2 On-Site Support. Licensee may, at the discretion of CentrAlert, receive discounts for on-site support of CentrAlert Software.
4.3 Upgrades. Any patches or bug fixes to the CentrAlert Software will be available to Licensee without any additional costs.
4.4 Refresh Program. The CentrAlert Refresh Program allows the Licensee to get up to 50% off a new CentrAlert system if they maintain their Technical Support Plan for five years from the date of initial configuration. Every CentrAlert system can be supported for a maximum of five years from initial configuration with a 10% discount on a new CentrAlert system applied for each year of unbroken Technical Support. Any break in Technical Support Plan renewals will reset the clock on this discount to zero, with a break being defined as going 90 days past the Technical Support Plan expiration date without renewing. Upon renewing their Technical Support Plan for a fifth year, the Licensee has until the expiration date of said Technical Support Plan to utilize the discount on a new CentrAlert system. Smaller discounts in previous years can be redeemed at any time, provided the Technical Support Plan is still active. Once the new, discounted CentrAlert system is confgured, the Licensee can purchase a new Technical Support Plan to start the clock running on another Refresh Program. The Refresh Program only covers CentrAlert Software and CentrAlert-provided hardware. Shipping, installation, training and support are not covered. Discount applies to MSRP of CentrAlert system. For Licensees with a Professional C-DAC, an Enterprise Technical Support Plan is required in order to avail of the Refresh Program.
5.1 Technical Support Plan Fees. Licensee will pay the Technical Support Plan Fees before any Technical Support Plan goes into effect. CentrAlert agrees to send email renewal notices to Licensee 60 days prior to expiration, 30 days prior to expiration, on expiration day, 30 days after expiration and 60 days after expiration until the Licensee renews or the 60-day post expiration email is sent, whichever comes first. If payment is not received before expiration, the Technical Support Plan, and all associated benefits, will lapse.
5.2 Additional Fees. Fees for additional services and products will be performed at the published labor rates of CentrAlert, subject to the discounts described in Section 4.1-4.3. Such additional fees will be invoiced monthly.
5.3 Costs. All fees set forth above shall be inclusive of all costs and applicable taxes.
6.1 Duration. New Technical Support Plans will typically come into effect at the date of shipping of Licensee’s Designated System with the duration being either one year or five years, based on the relevant Purchase Order.
6.2 Explicit Termination. Starting 90 days after the Effective Date, either Party may terminate these Technical Support Terms at any time for any reason with sixty (60) days written notice of termination from the other Party. If CentrAlert terminates the Agreement under this Section 6.2, CentrAlert agrees to reimburse Licensee an amount of the yearly Maintenance Fee proportional to the unused percentage of the year.
6.3 Failure to Fix a Tier Three Issue. Licensee may terminate these Technical Support Terms at any time if CentrAlert cannot provide a permanent solution to a Tier Three Issue within two weeks of the Licensee reporting the Error or Issue. If Licensee terminates the Agreement under this Section 6.3, CentrAlert agrees to reimburse Licensee an amount of the yearly Maintenance Fee proportional to the unused percentage of the year. Licensee may elect not to terminate and receive a refund for the portion of services or work that contains the Error or Issue.
6.4 Insolvency. In the event that either Party (a) shall become “Insolvent” (as such term is defined in the Bankruptcy Code of the United States of America, as amended from time to time), (b) shall fail to pay its debts generally as they become due, or (c) shall voluntarily seek, consent, or acquiesce in the benefits of any bankruptcy or similar debtor-relief laws that Party shall be considered to be in default of these Technical Support Terms.
7.1 Limited CentrAlert Software Warranty. CentrAlert represents, warrants, and covenants that CentrAlert Software: (i) is free of material or frequent Errors or Issues; (ii) complies with applicable laws and regulatory requirements; (iii) contains no viruses; (iv) does not violate intellectual property rights and that no suit is pending regarding alleged violation of such rights; and (v) has Documentation sufficient to enable persons of professional competence with computers to operate and use it. CentrAlert warrants to the Licensee that each item of Software, as delivered or updated by CentrAlert and properly installed and operated on the Hardware or other equipment it is originally licensed for, will function substantially as described in its then-current user documentation for a period of one year after shipping.
