Updated 21 July 2021 – These updated Terms do not apply to Arlo customers using Arlo in Europe.

We encourage you to read the complete Arlo Terms of Service below.
PLEASE NOTE THAT SECTION 6 CONTAINS A MANDATORY ARBITRATION PROVISION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER, WHICH REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE CERTAIN DISPUTES AND CLAIMS WITH US. EXCEPT AS SPECIFIED IN SECTION 6, THIS PROVISION REQUIRES THAT DISPUTES BE RESOLVED SOLELY THROUGH INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AND NOT AS A CLASS ARBITRATION OR CLASS ACTION.
IF YOU SIGN UP FOR ANY ARLO SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES, YOU FURTHER AGREE, AS DESCRIBED IN SECTION 10, THAT YOUR SUBSCRIPTION MAY AUTOMATICALLY RENEW FOR THE SAME APPLICABLE TERM AND PRICE, UNTIL YOU CANCEL.
Age:You must be at least 18 years of age to sign up for Arlo, and by signing up for Arlo you confirm that you are at least 18 years old. If you are under 18, do not attempt to register for the Arlo or send any information about yourself to us unless we have received consent from your parent or legal guardian.
Welcome to Arlo. Arlo is operated by Arlo Technologies, Inc. (“we”, “our”, “us” or “the Company”). These Terms of Service (“Arlo Terms” or “Terms”) apply to your use of any of our products or services including:
a) the Arlo hardware products, including, without limitation, cameras, lights, doorbells and base station devices (referred to herein as the “Arlo System”); and/or
b) the Arlo websites and any associated subscriptions, content services, accounts, mobile apps, streaming video sites, technical support and services accessible via Arlo websites, and all other web services associated with the Arlo product (collectively referred to as the “Arlo Websites and Apps”).
((a) and (b) above being collectively referred to herein as the "Arlo Services")
1. Terms of Service
Your registration of the Arlo System through the Arlo Websites as well as use of the Arlo Services is subject to the provisions of these Terms. Arlo may at its discretion change these Terms. Any changes made to the provisions of these Terms will be updated on the Arlo Website, and we will notify you, e.g. by sending you an email or displaying a prominent notice in the Arlo Services. Changes will not apply retroactively and will become effective 30 days after Arlo provides you with notice of any changes to these Terms. If you are dissatisfied with any changes to these Terms, you may cancel your Arlo Services in accordance with Section 14 of these Terms. Your use of the Arlo Services on or after the effective date of the change to the Terms constitutes your acceptance of the Terms, as modified. Any software component embodied in the Arlo System is licensed to you, and not sold. Arlo Services cannot be used in the comprehensively sanctioned countries Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan or Syria, and the Arlo System should not be sold in these countries.
THE ARLO SYSTEM, WEBSITES AND SERVICES ARE FOR PERSONAL, NON-COMMERCIAL USE ONLY.
2. Registration Information
Registration of your Arlo System is required. To register, you must provide and maintain accurate information, which may include: (i) your name (ii) your system identification number and (iii) an email address. You agree to provide and maintain accurate and complete user information, and Arlo may terminate your account if you provide Arlo with inaccurate or incomplete user information. You also certify that you are legally permitted to use and access the Arlo Services. These Terms are void where prohibited by law and the right to access the Arlo Services is revoked in such jurisdictions.
3. Member account, password and security
You will create a password and account designation during the Arlo Service’s registration process. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the password and account and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account. You agree to properly protect your account by, for example, exiting from or logging out of your account at the end of each session. You will also immediately notify us of unauthorised use of your password or account.
We will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this Section 3. We may refuse registration of or cancel Arlo account designation in its discretion.
4. Third-Party content
The Arlo Services give you the ability to access media content controlled by third parties (“Third-Party Content”) over which we exercise no editorial or programming control. You understand the following:
(a) Third-Party Content providers may restrict or revoke access to their content at any time;
(b) To the extent possible under the governing law, we are not responsible for and have no editorial control over any Third-Party Content; and
(c) We have no control over the distribution of Third-Party Content.
You agree that we will have no liability to you or anyone else who uses your Arlo System with regard to any Third-Party Content. You also agree and declare that any and all Third-Party Content accessed or transferred using the Arlo Services is for personal, non-commercial use and that the Arlo Services will not be used to illegally copy, illegally display or otherwise make illegal use of Third-Party Content. Generally, authorisation from the appropriate rights holder is needed prior to displaying, using or copying Third-Party Content. Unauthorised copying or distribution of copyrighted works may constitute an infringement of the copyright holders’ rights.
We may terminate the accounts of users of any Arlo service or software who infringe the copyrights, trademarks or intellectual property rights of others. In addition, steps intended to defeat or bypass security measures designed to prevent intellectual property infringement may be illegal under U.S. law or comparable foreign laws. We may terminate the Arlo accounts of users who develop or use methods to defeat or bypass such security measures and may take any other necessary or appropriate action to prevent infringement of intellectual property holders’ rights.
5. Changes to your Arlo Service
To the extent possible under the governing law, we may, at our discretion and without notice or user permission, change, add or remove features and functionality of the Arlo Services. If you are dissatisfied with any material changes to the Arlo Services during a subscription, you may immediately terminate your use of the Arlo Services and be entitled to a pro-rated refund of any of your paid for, but unused, subscription. We are under no obligation to provide any or all features and functionality to your Arlo System and may, at our discretion, discontinue the provision of software updates to certain Arlo Systems. Because different Arlo Systems may support different features and functionality, the level of service we provide may not be the same for each Arlo System.
6. DISPUTE RESOLUTION BY BINDING ARBITRATION; CLASS ACTION WAIVER. PLEASE READ THIS PROVISION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.
YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND THE COMPANY ARE EACH AGREEING TO ARBITRATE ALL DISPUTES ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND ARE THEREFORE WAIVING THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY JURY AND TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
BINDING ARBITRATION.To the extent possible under your local law, both you and the Company agree to arbitrate any and all disputes or claims out of or relating to this Agreement, any Arlo Services or your relationship to Arlo. All disputes concerning whether a claim is subject to arbitration (including disputes about the interpretation, breach, applicability, enforceability, revocability or validity of this Agreement) shall be decided by the arbitrator. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury to resolve claims. Arbitration is less formal than a traditional court proceeding and the arbitrator’s decision is subject to limited review by courts.
The arbitration will be governed and administered by the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures of Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services, Inc. (“JAMS”) then in effect, by one commercial arbitrator with substantial experience in resolving intellectual property and consumer contract disputes, who will be selected from the appropriate list of JAMS arbitrators in accordance with the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS. To the extent JAMS is not available in your state, the arbitration will be governed and administered by the American Arbitration Association Consumer Arbitration Rules. The right to arbitration under this Agreement is protected by, and any arbitration will also be governed by, the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1 et seq.). Both parties agree that the parties’ relationship involves interstate commerce. Judgement upon the award so rendered may be entered in a court having jurisdiction or application may be made to such court for judicial acceptance of any award and an order of enforcement, as the case may be.
EXCEPTIONS TO ARBITRATION. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each party will have the right to institute an action in a court of proper jurisdiction for injunctive or other equitable relief pending a final decision by the arbitrator. For all purposes of this Agreement, for any dispute between the parties that is not subject to arbitration, the parties consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the United States Federal Courts located in the Northern District of California.
CLASS ACTION WAIVER. The parties agree that they both give up the right to a jury trial and that each may bring claims against the other only on an individual basis and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action lawsuit: CLASS ARBITRATIONS AND CLASS ACTIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED.
THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER ARE OPTIONAL. You may decline or opt out of this agreement to arbitrate by sending written and signed notice to firstname.lastname@example.org within thirty (30) calendar days of agreeing to these Terms.

You may cancel your subscription by unticking the auto-renewal option in your Arlo account settings at my.arlo.com or contacting the Support Centre at https://www.arlo.com/en-us/support/contact.aspx.

YOU RELEASE AND WAIVE FOR YOURSELF AND YOUR INSURER ALL SUBROGATION AND OTHER RIGHTS TO RECOVER AGAINST THE COMPANY ARISING AS A RESULT OF THE PAYMENT OF ANY CLAIM FOR LOSS, DAMAGE OR INJURY.
OUR EQUIPMENT AND SERVICES DO NOT CAUSE AND CANNOT ELIMINATE OCCURRENCES OF CERTAIN EVENTS, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, FIRES, FLOODS, BURGLARIES, ROBBERIES AND MEDICAL PROBLEMS. ARLO MAKES NO GUARANTEE OR WARRANTY, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, THAT THE ARLO EQUIPMENT AND SERVICES PROVIDED WILL DETECT OR AVERT SUCH INCIDENTS OR THEIR CONSEQUENCES. THE COMPANY DOES NOT UNDERTAKE ANY RISK THAT YOU OR YOUR PROPERTY, OR THE PERSON OR PROPERTY OF OTHERS, MAY BE SUBJECT TO INJURY OR LOSS IF SUCH AN EVENT OCCURS. THE ALLOCATION OF SUCH RISK REMAINS WITH YOU, NOT THE COMPANY.
OTHER THAN AS STATED IN OUR LIMITED HARDWARE WARRANTY FOR ARLO DEVICES, WE AND OUR SUPPLIERS DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, REGARDING THE ARLO SERVICES, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF TITLE, MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD-PARTY RIGHTS. BECAUSE SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT PERMIT THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, THE LAST SENTENCE OF THIS SECTION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. ARLO HEREBY FURTHER EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL LIABILITY FOR ANY CLAIMS FOR SERVICE FAILURES THAT ARE DUE TO NORMAL PRODUCT WEAR, PRODUCT MISUSE, ABUSE, PRODUCT MODIFICATION, IMPROPER PRODUCT SELECTION OR YOUR NON-COMPLIANCE WITH ANY AND ALL APPLICABLE FEDERAL, STATE OR LOCAL LAWS. OUR LIMITED HARDWARE WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS AND YOU MAY HAVE OTHER RIGHTS THAT VARY BY STATE, PROVINCE OR COUNTRY. OTHER THAN AS PERMITTED BY LAW, ARLO DOES NOT EXCLUDE, LIMIT OR SUSPEND OTHER RIGHTS YOU HAVE, INCLUDING THOSE THAT MAY ARISE FROM THE NONCONFORMITY OF A SALES CONTRACT. FOR A FULL UNDERSTANDING OF YOUR RIGHTS YOU SHOULD CONSULT THE LAWS OF YOUR STATE, PROVINCE OR COUNTRY. FOR OUR AUSTRALIAN CUSTOMERS: PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS WARRANTY IS IN ADDITION TO ANY STATUTORY RIGHTS IN AUSTRALIA IN RELATION TO YOUR GOODS WHICH, PURSUANT TO AUSTRALIAN CONSUMER LAW, CANNOT BE EXCLUDED.
24. No third-party beneficiaries
You agree that, except as otherwise expressly provided in these Terms, there will be no third-party beneficiaries to these Terms.
25. Limitations of Arlo's liability
Under no circumstances will we be liable in any way for any Content, including, but not limited to, the loss of Content, any errors or omissions in any Content or any loss or damage of any kind incurred in connection with use of or exposure to any Content posted, emailed, accessed, transmitted or otherwise made available via the Arlo Services.
Subject to the exceptions stated at the end of this section, our liability for damages, especially for breach of duty or obligation, delay in performance, non-performance or mal-performance shall be precluded, except when these are due to negligent breaches of any significant contractual duty or obligation on the part of the Company. Any liability for negligence is limited to direct losses usually and typically foreseeable in such case. Should the claim for damages be based on wilful or grossly negligent breach of contractual duty or obligation on the part of Arlo, the preclusion and limitation of liability mentioned in the preceding sentences will not apply. The preceding preclusion and limitation of liability will also not apply to claims for damages arising out of loss of life, bodily injury or health impacts for which the Company may be liable, or for non-contractual liability.
Some states and countries do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. Additionally, this provision is not intended to limit our liability in the event of our wilful or intentional misconduct. Moreover, if we mistakenly or wrongfully overcharge your account, this section does not limit our ability to refund such mistakenly or wrongfully overcharged amounts.
THE LIMITATIONS SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION WILL NOT LIMIT OUR LIABILITY FOR PERSONAL INJURY, DEATH OR PROPERTY DAMAGE CAUSED BY THE ARLO DEVICES OR FOR THE GROSS NEGLIGENCE, FRAUD OR INTENTIONAL, WILFUL, MALICIOUS OR RECKLESS MISCONDUCT OF COMPANY.
