FoodSpect App for iOS and Android devices only displays restaurant health and safety inspection data for British Columbia (BC), Canada. While we endeavour to expand our reach throughout Canada and the United States, we are currently only displaying restaurant health and safety inspection data for the cities and towns of British Columbia (BC).
By downloading or using the app, these terms will automatically apply to you – you should make sure therefore that you read them carefully before using the app. We are offering you this app to use for your own personal use without cost, but you should be aware that you cannot send it on to anyone else, and you’re not allowed to copy, or modify the app, any part of the app, or our trademarks in any way. You’re not allowed to attempt to extract the source code of the app, and you also shouldn’t try to translate the app into other languages, or make derivative versions. The app itself, and all the trade marks, copyright, database rights and other intellectual property rights related to it, still belong to FoodSpect Technologies Incorporated, herein referred to as ‘FoodSpect’ or ‘the app.’
FoodSpect is committed to ensuring that the app is as useful and efficient as possible. For that reason, we reserve the right to make changes to the app or to the pricing of the app, at any time and for any reason.
It’s your responsibility to keep your phone and access to the app secure. We therefore recommend that you do not jailbreak or root your phone, which is the process of removing software restrictions and limitations imposed by the official operating system of your device. It could make your phone vulnerable to malware/viruses/malicious programs, compromise your phone’s security features and it could mean that the FoodSpect app won’t work properly or at all.
You should be aware that there are certain things that FoodSpect will not take responsibility for. You are required to have an active internet connection to use the FoodSpect app. The connection can be Wi-Fi, or provided by your mobile network provider, but FoodSpect cannot take responsibility for the app not working at full functionality if you don’t have access to Wi-Fi, and you don’t have any of your data allowance left.
If you’re using the app outside of an area with Wi-Fi, you should remember that your terms of agreement with your mobile network provider will still apply. As a result, you may be charged by your mobile provider for the cost of data for the duration of the connection while accessing the app, or other third party charges. In using the app, you’re accepting responsibility for any such charges, including roaming data charges if you use the app outside of your home territory (i.e. region or country) without turning off data roaming. If you are not the bill payer for the device on which you’re using the app, please be aware that we assume that you have received permission from the bill payer for using the app.
Along the same lines, FoodSpect cannot always take responsibility for the way you use the app. You also need to make sure that your device stays charged – if it runs out of battery and you can’t turn it on to look for a restaurant to eat at, FoodSpect cannot accept responsibility if you are as a result not able to obtain a reservation, or become ill at a restaurant due to unsatisfactory food handling.
It is also important to realize that restaurants, eateries, and cafes do move locations from time to time. We are not responsible for your mapping application not accurately providing an establishment’s address. If you locate a restaurant of interest and it is not at the stated address, it is the responsibility of the establishment and FoodSpect cannot be held liable in any way.
You should also remember that the app’s data provided to you is not owned or manipulated by FoodSpect. We do not rate the information, we merely provide it for your own decision making processes. Lastly, with respect to FoodSpect’s responsibility for your use of the app, when you’re using the app, it’s important to bear in mind that although we endeavour to ensure that it is updated and correct at all times, we do rely on third parties to provide information to us so that we can make it available to you. FoodSpect accepts no liability for any loss, direct or indirect, you experience as a result of relying wholly on this functionality of the app.
At some point we may wish to update the app. The app is currently available on Android and iOS – the requirements for both systems (and for any additional systems we decide to extend the availability of the app to) may change, and you’ll need to download the updates if you want to keep using the app. FoodSpect does not promise that it will always update the app so that it is relevant to you and/or works with the iOS/Android version that you have installed on your device. However, you promise to always accept updates to the application when offered to you, We may also wish to stop providing the app, and may terminate use of it at any time without giving notice of termination to you. Unless we tell you otherwise, upon any termination, (a) the rights and licenses granted to you in these terms will end; (b) you must stop using the app, and (if needed) delete it from your device.
