Subscription Terms and Conditions for Husqvarna Fleet Services

 

Version 2.1 June 2018 – Australia

1. Scope and Service Description – Husqvarna Fleet Services

Husqvarna Fleet Services are intended to help the Customer to increase productivity by providing an overview of the Customer’s fleet of Machines. The Services are provided by way of Fleet Machine Sensors (embedded in the Machine and/or subsequently installed) and other Sensors that collect a variety of Machine Data- and, depending on the use of the Services, personal data relating to the Operator. Processing of personal data is regulated in Section 7 and 8 in these Terms and Conditions as well as in a separate Data Processing Agreement.

Depending on type of Machine, data is uploaded via tablet or smartphone or via connectivity embedded in the Machine to a managed web site and dedicated apps that provide various Machine statistics and other related services such as Operator statistics, by using electronic ID cards, the management of jobs, tasks, documents and more.

The Services consist of access to and use of functions made available on the Fleet Services Platform
. The Services provide the Platform Users of the Customer access to the Fleet Services Platform and the ability to monitor Machine Data and Operator related data. In providing the Services, each Machine collects Machine Data and Operator related data by means of the Sensors.

Fleet Services comes with a set of free functionality, such as asset list, project and tasks and library. In order to make use of the full range of Services, each Machine must be subscribed to the Services (a Machine Subscription). Additionally, in order to make use of functionality, statistics and other parts of the Services relating specifically to an Operator the Operator must also be subscribed to the Services (an Operator Subscription). This specific functionality is planned to be released during 2019.

The Customer can activate and inactivate Machine Subscriptions and Operator Subscriptions over seasons. Available Service content depends on Machine model and some Services are not available for Third Party Machines. Detailed information about which Service content is available for each Machine model can be found on www.husqvarna.com or inside Fleet Services Platform.

Husqvarna Fleet Services have been designed and are intended for use by companies and other professional users and they have not been adapted for use by consumers and non-professionals. Husqvarna may under separate terms, in its sole description, from time to time, against fees or free of charge, provide alternatives to Husqvarna Fleet Services for use inter alia by consumers; please visit Husqvarna's webpage for information on available consumer services.

Husqvarna Fleet Services are provided by Husqvarna Sales Company as a subscription service, subject to the following terms and conditions.

For the avoidance of doubt, these terms and conditions do not regulate the sale of Machines and Hardware, which instead is regulated by a separate sales contract concluded with the Husqvarna Sales Company or the Dealer.
