If you do not agree with any of these terms, then you should decline this Agreement during our sign-up process or other methods we make available to you.

If you sell or transfer your Connected Vehicle, you must cease using any Services in respect of such vehicle. If a new owner opens an account in respect of a Connected Vehicle, any prior accounts in respect of such Connected Vehicle may be terminated.

We reserve the right to charge for Services we currently offer without charge. Some Services that may be available to you include: Services that may be offered to you at no additional fee for a defined period of time; or Services offered for an additional fee, such as a recurring fee or one-time payment.

3. Accessing the Services

You can only access and use the Services if you own or lease a Connected Vehicle, have an active account in our MyMazda mobile application (“MyMazda” or “MyMazda App”), and you accept this Agreement. This Agreement can only be accepted by you in your MyMazda account.

4. Types of Users:

Primary User: As the owner or lessee of a Connected Vehicle, you will become the Primary User of the Services for your Connected Vehicle when you accept this Agreement in MyMazda. There may be only one Primary User per Connected Vehicle/Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).

As Primary User, if you let someone else use one of our products or services (e.g. your Connected Vehicle) you must inform them of this this Agreement, our Privacy Policy and of the privacy choices that you have made. Please note that both primary and secondary users have access to information within the app and relating to the Connected Vehicle.

Secondary User(s): As the Primary User of your Connected Vehicle’s Services, you can designate one or more additional Secondary Users, who will also have access to the Services, provided each Secondary User has an active MyMazda account and accepts this Agreement. It is your responsibility to ensure that any Secondary User you designate is of legal driving age and has either reached the age of majority for the relevant jurisdiction, or has obtained the consent of their parent/legal guardian to this Agreement and out Privacy Policy. The Primary User may discontinue any Secondary User’s access to the Services at any time.

5. Complimentary Period of the Services

The Services are currently offered on new Connected Vehicles only on a complimentary basis. The complimentary period of the Services will begin on the original purchase or lease date, or the in-service date of the Connected Vehicle, whichever is earlier, and end when terminated by you or us in accordance with Section 6. If the Connected Vehicle is sold or transferred during the complimentary period, the new owner or lessee may be able to subscribe to the Services and receive the benefit of any remaining time in the complimentary period, if applicable. You cannot transfer your complimentary period of the Services to another vehicle or Connected Vehicle. We reserve the right to cease to offer the Services on a complementary basis, and to offer Services on a paid basis at any time in our sole and absolute discretion.

6. Cancellation of the Services
  1. Your Cancellation Rights. You can cancel the Services at any time, with or without cause, and for either a complimentary period or paid service plan (if applicable), by logging-into your MyMazda account and canceling your Services subscription. The cancellation effective date is the date you cancel your subscription in the MyMazda App, and, upon such cancelation, we have the right to immediately turn off access to the Services for you and all of your designated Secondary Users, if applicable. It is your responsibility to cancel the Services prior to selling, transferring, or terminating the lease on your Connected Vehicle. We reserve the right to immediately cancel your Services once notified of the sale or lease termination of your Connected Vehicle by you, a dealer, or new owner/lessee.

    Note that your cancellation of the Services does not cancel the collection of information from the Telematics Control Unit, as described in the Connected Vehicle Privacy Policy. You can contact us to deactivate your Telematics Control Unit; please see the ‘Contact Us’ section below for our contact information.

  2. Our Cancellation Rights. The following does not limit Sections 11 and 11.3 of the Quebec Consumer Protection Act, if such sections are otherwise applicable.

    Without Cause: We may terminate your subscription at any time without cause, immediately, and without providing any prior notice to you. This means that we can decide to cease providing the Services to you at any time and for any reason, even for reasons unrelated to you or your subscription with us. We can also suspend your subscription at any time and for any reason.

    With Cause: We may terminate your subscription for any good cause, at any time, and without prior notice to you. This means, for example, we can terminate your subscription immediately if you breach any part of this Agreement, interfere with our connectivity efforts, interfere with our business, or if you use the Services for illegal or improper purposes. You do not have any right to have your Services reactivated, even if you cure any of these issues. We may, in our sole and absolute discretion, allow reactivation of your Services.
7. Data Collection

By having access to the Services, your Connected Vehicle will transmit certain data to us on an ongoing basis. This transmission is required to receive the Services, and we will automatically terminate your Services if you disable our ability to collect such data from your Connected Vehicle. For full details on what information and data we collect from you and your Connected Vehicle related to the Services and how we use it, please review our Connected Services Privacy Policy.

8. Vehicle Idling

The federal, provincial and local governments may, from time to time, adopt laws or ordinances that limit vehicle idling and impose penalties for noncompliance. When using the Remote Engine Start feature (if applicable), you agree that you are solely responsible to understand and comply with all such idling laws, and you are solely responsible for any noncompliance infractions and/or penalties.

9. How the Services Work, Restrictions and Limitations
  1. How Connectivity Works. Your Connected Vehicle includes a telematics control unit (“TCU”) that receives Global Position System (“GPS”) signals and wireless network signals to communicate with our network and response centers.
  2. Coverage Limitations.

The Services may not be available in geographic areas not covered by our Wireless Service Provider (“WSP”).
  3. Cross-Border Service Availability. The Services will not be available in Connected Vehicles sold by us outside of Canada (the “Territory”). The Services may be limited or not work if the Connected Vehicle is physically located outside of the Territory or leaves the Territory.

IN ADDITION, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY THE APPLICABLE LAW, YOU EXPRESSLY UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT NEITHER THE MAZDA FAMILY OF COMPANIES NOR THE THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS SHALL HAVE ANY LEGAL, EQUITABLE, OR OTHER LIABILITY OF ANY KIND TO YOU, AND YOU HEREBY WAIVE ANY AND ALL CLAIMS OR DEMANDS THEREFOR.
10. Your Duties and Responsibilities

It is your responsibility to ensure your Connected Vehicle and the Services are working. You are solely responsible for any use of your Connected Vehicle and the Services, including any use under your account, even if you are not the one using the Connected Vehicle or the Services, and even if you later claim the use was not authorized. You are also solely responsible for the Services requested by you, or by anyone using your Connected Vehicle. Neither we nor any Third-Party Service Provider has any obligation to inquire about the authority of anyone using your Connected Vehicle. Neither we nor any Third-Party Service Provider has any obligation to inquire about the authority of anyone using your personal information that can be used to identify your MyMazda account to request Services for your Connected Vehicle. If you or a driver of your Connected Vehicle uses the Services or systems in the Connected Vehicle to commit a crime or for another improper purpose, you will be solely responsible for any damages owed or losses experienced by us as a result of such use. You are entirely responsible for any transaction with anyone in connection with your use of the Services, and any use that you make of any information received from or through the Services.

  1. Not to use the Services for any fraudulent, unlawful, or abusive purpose, or in any way that interferes with our provision of the Services to our other customers;

If you, any of your designated Secondary Users, or any other person who uses your Connected Vehicle, do/does any of these things, you agree you will be solely responsible for any payment of any amount of any third-party claim owed by us or our Third-Party Service Providers, plus any expenses, or losses, resulting in whole or in part, from such actions taken by you or your Secondary Users or such other person.

11. Vehicle Insurance

You are responsible for your maintaining all legally required and appropriate vehicle insurance on your Connected Vehicle. The Services are not an insurance product and do not provide you with liability insurance for your Connected Vehicle.

12. Passengers and Drivers of Your Connected Vehicle

You are responsible to inform any passengers or other drivers of your Connected Vehicle that the Services collect, use and share certain information as described in this Agreement and the Connected Services Privacy Policy.

13. Sales or Transfer of Your Connected Vehicle

You are required to notify us of any sale or transfer of your Connected Vehicle. This is important to help protect your account and your information, and that of the new owner. If you do not notify us of a sale or transfer of your Connected Vehicle, we may continue to send reports or other information about the vehicle or account to the Primary User’s contact information currently on file with us, and the previous owner may be able to continue to use the services in respect of the Connected Vehicle. SUCH CONTINUED USE OF THE SERVICES BY THE PREVIOUS OWNER IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED. In such case, we are not responsible for any privacy related damages or claims you or anyone else may suffer. If you sell or transfer your Connected Vehicle, you must cease using any Services in respect of such vehicle. If a new owner opens an account in respect of a Connected Vehicle, any prior accounts in respect of such Connected Vehicle may be terminated.

14. No Warranties or Conditions

Your Connected Vehicle may have a limited warranty that includes your TCU. However, to the fullest extent permitted by the applicable law, neither we, nor the Mazda Family of Companies, and/or any Third-Party Service Provider makes any warranties or conditions, express or implied, to you about the TCU or the Services (including the content or other information delivered to you as part of the Services), or the wireless service used in connection with your Services, including any warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. All data and information is provided to you on an “as-is” basis. This means we make no warranties in connection with the content, quality, accuracy, timeliness, completeness, correctness, reliability, merchantability, or fitness for a particular purpose. All warranties with respect to the Services, the wireless service, or any system used or provider by a Third-Party Service Provider are expressly disclaimed and excluded by this Agreement.

15. LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY, LIQUIDATED DAMAGES, INDEMNITY

This Section 15 applies to the fullest extent permitted by the applicable law, and does not limit Section 10 or Section 11.1 of the Quebec Consumer Protection Act, if such section is otherwise applicable.

Neither we, our Mazda Family of Companies, nor any Third Party Service Provider or beneficiary will be liable to you or any other party for consequential, indirect, incidental, special, or punitive damages (including, without limitation, lost profits) in connection with the Connected Vehicle or the Services, even if we, any of our Mazda Family of Companies, or a Third Party Service Provider or beneficiary is aware of the possibility of such damages. These limitations apply to all claims, including, without limitation, claims in contract and tort (such as negligence, product liability, and strict liability). Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so those particular limitations may not apply to you. If a Third Party Service Provider terminates or restricts wireless service compatible with your vehicle, the Services will not be available, and, under this circumstance, some or all of your Services may be suspended or terminated without prior notice to you and without any liability to us, our Mazda Family of Companies, Third Party Service Providers, or any third party beneficiary.

If we, any of our Mazda Family of Companies, or any Third Party Service Provider or beneficiary are found liable to you for any reason, you agree that the aggregate liability of all these parties to you for any claim is limited to the total amount paid by you for the Services. Neither us, our Mazda Family of Companies, nor any Third Party Service Provider or beneficiary would have agreed to provide the Services to you if you did not agree to this limitation. This amount is the sole and exclusive liability of us, our Mazda Family of Companies, and any Third Party Service Provider or beneficiary to you, and is payable as liquidated damages and not as a penalty. Except where prohibited by law, you may not bring any claim against us, any of our Mazda Family of Companies, or any Third Party Service Provider or third party beneficiary more than one (1) year after the claim arises. No one is liable to you for interrupted service, or for problems caused by or contributed to by you, by any third party, by buildings, hills, tunnels, network congestion, weather, or any other things we, our Mazda Family of Companies, or our Third Party Service Providers do not control.

BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT YOU ARE WAIVING IMPORTANT RIGHTS. YOU AGREE NOT TO MAKE, AND WAIVE TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, ANY CLAIM FOR DAMAGES OTHER THAN DIRECT, COMPENSATORY DAMAGES AS LIMITED ABOVE. NEITHER WE, ANY OF OUR MAZDA FAMILY OF COMPANIES, NOR ANY OF OUR THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS ARE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DROPPED CALLS, INTERRUPTED SERVICE, OR PROBLEMS CAUSED BY OR CONTRIBUTED TO BY YOU, BY ANY THIRD-PARTY, BY BUILDINGS, HILLS, TUNNELS, NETWORK CONGESTION, ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS, BY OVER THE AIR UPDATES, OR BY ANY ACT OF GOD OR NATURAL DISASTER, OR OTHER THINGS WE, OUR MAZDA FAMILY OF COMPANIES, AND OUR THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS DO NOT CONTROL.

For yourself and for anyone else claiming under you, you agree to release and discharge Mazda Canada Inc., the Mazda Family of Companies, and its/their Third Party Service Providers and third party beneficiaries, and, for each, their parents, affiliates, and subsidiaries, and the respective officers, directors, and employees, from all claims, liabilities and losses in connection with your Connected Vehicle and the Services, including, but not limited to claims for personal injury or property damage arising from the total or partial failure of performance of the Connected Vehicle or the Services, even if caused by or based upon the negligence, gross negligence, strict product liability, unfair trade practice violations, bad faith, or breach of warranty of us or the malfunction of the Connected Vehicle. You agree to indemnify us, our Mazda Family of Companies, and our Third Party Service Providers and each third party beneficiary against all such claims, liabilities and losses by third parties. You further agree that this release extends to any party claiming under you and that no insurance company will have any right of subrogation.

You agree that the limitations of liability and indemnities in this Agreement will survive even after the Agreement has ended. These limitations of liability apply not only to you, but to anyone using your Connected Vehicle, to anyone making a claim on your behalf, and to any claims made by your family, persons you allow to drive the Connected Vehicle, or others arising out of or relating to your or their use of the Connected Vehicle or the Services.

16. How will we resolve disputes between us?

The following paragraphs apply to the fullest extent permitted by the applicable law, and do not limit Sections 11.1 and 19 of the Quebec Consumer Protection Act, if such sections are otherwise applicable.

We expect that our Customer Assistance Centre will be able to resolve most issues you may have using the Services. In the unlikely event that an issue remains unresolved, we prefer to specify now what each of us should expect in order to avoid any confusion later. Accordingly, you and we agree to the following resolution process:

  1. In an attempt to find the quickest and most efficient resolution of our issues, you and we agree to first discuss any issue informally for at least 30 days. To do that, please send your full name, your email and/or mailing address, your concern, and your proposed solution by certified mail to us at: 55 Vogell Road, Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada, L4B 3K5, Attn: Legal Department. If we would like to discuss an issue with you, we may contact you using any email or mailing address we have on file for you.
  2. IF WE DO NOT REACH AN AGREED UPON SOLUTION AFTER OUR DISCUSSIONS FOR AT LEAST 30 DAYS, YOU AND WE AGREE THAT ANY CLAIM THAT EITHER OF US MAY HAVE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE CONNECTED VEHICLE TERMS AND CONDITIONS AND THE AGREEMENT (INCLUDING FORMATION, PERFORMANCE, OR BREACH OF THEM), OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH EACH OTHER, OR USE OF THE MAZDA CONNECTED SERVICES MUST BE RESOLVED THROUGH BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION BEFORE THE AMERICAN ARBITRATION ASSOCIATION USING ITS CONSUMER ARBITRATION RULES, AVAILABLE HERE. AS AN EXCEPTION TO THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, EITHER YOU OR WE MAY PURSUE IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT ANY CLAIM THAT IS WITHIN THAT COURT'S JURISDICTION AS LONG AS YOU PROCEED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS.

NOTHING HEREIN SHALL BE CONSTRUED TO PRECLUDE ANY PARTY FROM SEEKING INJUNCTIVE RELIEF IN ORDER TO PROTECT ITS RIGHTS PENDING AN OUTCOME IN ARBITRATION.

TO HELP RESOLVE ANY ISSUES BETWEEN US PROMPTLY AND DIRECTLY, YOU AND WE AGREE TO BEGIN ANY ARBITRATION WITHIN ONE YEAR AFTER A CLAIM ARISES; OTHERWISE, THE CLAIM IS WAIVED.

YOU AND WE ALSO AGREE TO ARBITRATE OR PURSUE A CLAIM IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT IN EACH OF YOUR AND OUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITIES ONLY, NOT AS A REPRESENTATIVE OR MEMBER OF A CLASS, AND YOU AND WE EXPRESSLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO FILE A CLASS ACTION OR SEEK RELIEF ON A CLASS BASIS.

If you initiate the arbitration, your arbitration fees will be limited to the filing fee set forth in the AAA's Consumer Rules. Regardless of who initiates the arbitration, we will pay any other arbitration fees, including your share of arbitrator compensation.

IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU UNDERSTAND THAT BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, BOTH YOU AND WE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION AGAINST THE OTHER PARTY FOR CLAIMS THAT ARE COVERED BY THIS “DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND ARBITRATION ” SECTION. THE ARBITRATOR'S DECISION WILL BE CONCLUSIVE AND BINDING AND MAY BE ENTERED AS A JUDGMENT IN ANY COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION.

If the arbitrator rules against us, in addition to accepting whatever responsibility is ordered by the arbitrator, we will reimburse your reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs, regardless of who initiated the arbitration. In addition, if the arbitrator rules in our favor, we will not seek reimbursement of our attorneys’ fees and costs, regardless of who initiated the arbitration.

If you're not sure what all of this means, please feel free to consult with a lawyer.

The above paragraphs do not apply to any claim (i) in which a party is attempting to protect its intellectual property rights (such as its patent, copyright, trademarks, trade secret, or morals rights, but not including its privacy or publicity rights, or (ii) that may be brought in small-claims court.

IF THIS SECTION IS HELD TO BE INVALID OR UNENFORCEABLE, THEN FOR ANY CLAIMS THE PARTIES CONSENT TO PERSONAL JURISDICTION AND EXCLUSIVE VENUE IN THE CAPITAL CITY OF THE PROVINCE WHOSE LAWS GOVERN THIS AGREEMENT (AS SET OUT IN SECTION 17), OTHER THAN IN ALBERTA THE VENUE SHALL BE CALGARY AND IN BRITISH COLUMBIA THE VENUE SHALL BE VANCOUVER.

17. Governing Law

18. Modification to the Agreement.

We may modify this Agreement, by adding, deleting or changing any term, by providing notice to you at least thirty (30) days in advance of the change, or by asking you to read and accept a new version of this Agreement. We may give you notice by posting a new version of the Agreement on our website, and/or where required by law or at our discretion, sending a message to the email address (or other contact information at our discretion) associated with your account, setting out the new clause, or the amended clause and the clause as it read formerly, and the date of the coming into force of the amendment. Your continued access or use of any of the Services after expiry of the notice period, or your acceptance of the new version of this Agreement, will be deemed to be your agreement to such modifications to the Agreement. If someone other than you is using your Connected Vehicle that time, you agree that such person is authorized to agree on your behalf. If you do not agree with any modification, then you may terminate the Services as set out in this Agreement, without cost, penalty or cancellation indemnity, by sending us notice to that effect no later than thirty (30) days after the amendment comes into force. Unless you notify us within thirty (30) days from the time you receive notice of the new Terms that you do not agree to these new Terms, you will be deemed to have agreed to the revised Terms.

19. Software Updates

You consent to us accessing the systems associated with your Connected Vehicle for the following purposes:
