21.       Remote Hybrid and Remote Uber product and service definitions

21.1     The “Remote Hybrid” or “Remote Uber” is a combination of both a “product” and “service”, although it is still collectively referred to as the “product”.

The parts of the “Remote Hybrid” and “Remote Uber” which are a service are:

i.       Remote access to the server and software, which you are licensed to use.

ii.       Our time to manage the server

The parts that are a “product” are:

i.       Any physical hardware, including but not limited to mobile phones.

Alternatively, at any time and at our sole discretion, we may opt to send you software and instructions for you to run a server by yourself. In this case:

i. This will complete our obligations to you, with your purchase now being for a “product” (excluding “service”), and

ii. We will not be required to manage servers for you, or to provide any further service, and

iii. We will still supply you with all required equipment (if we didn’t already) except for the server which runs the software.

iv. We will still endeavor to provide you with continued technical support, although it would not be our obligation to do so.

21.2     A server will be assigned to you, and managed by us. You may access it at any time, although you must schedule a time with our booking process at least 24hrs in advance. Your server will be online for any time period you request. However, to minimize resource wastage, you agree to schedule only periods in which you intend to actually use the server, rather than having us leaving your server online perpetually.

We will endeavor to provide this service for as long as we or our subsidiaries exist. However, our official legal obligation is to provide the service to you for a minimum of 12 months following the date of your order. If we are unable to meet our obligations, or if we cease providing the service at any time and for any reason (including before or after the 12 months elapses), you will be sent the full server software, and instructions so you may run a server on your own hardware without needing our resources or staff. In this case, the software is provided with complete instructions to run your own server. You must supply your own hardware (server).

21.3     You agree to follow the guidelines for use of the product, which we may update from time to time. You will be notified of updates to the guidelines, and it is your responsibility to follow them. The current guidelines include to not do or attempt to do any of the following with the server:

  • Access any files, folders or icons that are not on the server desktop (the screen you see first)
  • Connect using any software other than what is specified by the instructions
  • Transfer any files (to or from)
  • Access the internet through the server
  • Run, install or edit any files other than what is required to use the server as intended
  • Obtain system information
  • Take screenshots of software
  • Change any settings
  • Probe the network (pings, port scans etc)
  • Disable any software or services
  • Access the task manager or any command prompt
  • Break any laws
  • Log on with another user’s credentials
  • Allow another individual to use your logon credentials
  • Anything else that is not required for the intended use of the server

21.4     You understand and agree that all activity, including video from the camera, is logged. This is for the purpose of ensuring compliance with these terms, and providing support to you. The recordings and logs are kept private, and will never be made available to anyone other than our staff, except where required by law.

21.5     If we reasonably believe you are breaking laws, we will restrict your access to the server. However, we are a service provider and it is not our responsibility to ensure your compliance with laws. You agree to be fully responsible for any unlawful use (accidental or not) of our products or services.

21.6     Your access to the server requires you to subscribe to the services of a telecommunications company, which will provide your phones with Internet access via GSM or wifi. You agree to be fully responsible for your legal use of such services, and associated expenses.

22.       Remote Hybrid and Hybrid Hardware and Capabilities

22.1     The “Remote Hybrid” uses powerful remote servers that process complex algorithms. It can track the  roulette wheel rotor at any orientation (provided the green zero is visible), and requires only one ball revolution to calculate a prediction. It can calculate predictions within 4 seconds (in typical conditions).

22.2     Until faster and more capable hardware that is approved by us is available, the Remote Hybrid may only be used on servers we maintain. You will not pay for any hardware upgrades to servers we maintain.

23.       Non-disclosure

In addition to the non-disclosure agreement, you must not reveal to any other individual that you are a user of the product, unless we provide prior written consent.

24.       Termination of service or access to the product

Breach of any of the terms will result in termination of your access to the server, and you will not be entitled to any refund.

25.       Our assistance to find you team members

We agree to provide support in relation to finding team members for you. This includes by providing you with access to www.rouletteforum.net, and actively advertising your open positions for you. However, we do not and cannot guarantee to find team members for you. You understand that any of our efforts to find team members for you are not our obligation, and are only provided at our discretion.
