Congratulations on the purchase of your ShockIQ™ Electric Shock Safety System and/or DockIQ® Smart Dock Security System from DockIQ, LLC (“DockIQ”). DockIQ helps customers, through our hardware, mobile applications, and associated services, monitor docks, watercraft, water conditions, and related marine data to protect themselves, their property, and get better use out of their docks and watercraft. Among other things, DockIQ helps monitor water levels (which may indicate the need to move the dock), tracks the location of the dock and watercraft in the case of unmooring or theft, detects movement on the dock and watercraft, and (if enabled) monitors the water around the dock for unsafe levels of electricity. The DockIQ products and services, depending upon user settings and the services purchased, also alert the customer of certain conditions so the customer can address the issue (for example: move the dock; alert authorities of a theft in progress; or unsafe levels of electricity in the water).
In the end, however, DockIQ is only an information provider which adds an additional layer of protection. It is up to the customer to take action based on the information provided. For example, if DockIQ detects the presence of unsafe levels of electricity in the water or water levels that require moving a dock, it is up to the user to take appropriate action to remedy the situation. DockIQ cannot act for the user, just alert the user that action is needed. For this reason, DockIQ will not be liable for any damages suffered by the user, or the user’s family or friends due to the failure to take remedial action.
Moreover, DockIQ’s ability to provide the user information is dependent on some things outside its control. For example, mobile alerts can only be delivered if all the necessary telecommunication services are working and the customer’s mobile device settings are properly enabled. For this reason, DockIQ will not be liable for any damages suffered by the user, or the user’s family or friends due to failures outside DockIQ’s control.
Even the best technology cannot take the place of common sense. When using DockIQ, do not ignore apparent dangers or fail to use common sense. DockIQ cannot guaranty the safety of anyone or anything, but it can assist the user in making good decisions by providing the best information available.
