Terms of Service - Full Version

Thank you for using Radwave!

1.0 These Terms of Service (“Terms”) govern your access to and use of the Radwave website, apps, APIs, and widgets (“Radwave” or the “Service”). Please read these Terms carefully, and contact us at support@radwave.com if you have any questions. By accessing or using Radwave, you agree to be bound by these Terms, our Privacy Policy and our Community Guidelines.

1.1 Radwave helps you explore the spectrum and share what you find. To do that, we utilize third party devices to collect raw sensor data. We transform and display that sensor data so that you can explore, tag, and share it.

2.0 You may use Radwave only if you can legally form a binding contract with Radwave, and only in compliance with these Terms and all applicable laws. When you create your Radwave account, you must provide us with accurate and complete information. Any use or access by anyone under the age of 13 is not allowed. Using Radwave may include downloading software to your computer, phone, tablet, or other device. You agree that we may automatically update that software, and these Terms, as modified from time-to-time by Radwave, will apply to any updates.

2.1 Subject to these Terms and our policies (including our Community Guidelines), we grant you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, and revocable license to use our Service.

2.2 If you want to use Radwave for commercial purposes you must create a business account and agree to our Business Terms of Service. If you do open an account for a company, organization, or other entity, then "you" includes you and that entity, and you promise that you are authorized to grant all permissions and licenses provided in these Terms and bind the entity to these Terms, and that you agree to these Terms on the entity’s behalf.

3.0 Radwave allows you to tag content, including spectral tags, photos, comments, links, and other materials. Anything that you tag or otherwise make available on Radwave is referred to as “User Content”. You retain all rights in, and are solely responsible for, the User Content you post to Radwave.

3.1 Radwave utilizes third party devices to collect raw sensor data, in particular radio frequency (RF) sensor data. Laws regarding collection of such sensor data may vary by region. You are responsible for ensuring that you are operating Radwave legally and appropriately. Radwave is not liable for any issues resulting from illegal or inappropriate operation of such sensors.

3.2 You grant Radwave and our users a non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, transferable, sublicensable, worldwide license to use, store, display, reproduce, save, modify, create derivative works, perform, and distribute your User Content on Radwave solely for the purposes of operating, developing, providing, and using Radwave. Nothing in these Terms restricts other legal rights Radwave may have to use User Content, for example under other licenses. We reserve the right to remove or modify User Content, or change the way it’s used in Radwave, for any reason. This includes User Content that we believe violates these Terms, our  Community Guidelines, or any other policies.

3.3 Following termination or deactivation of your account, or if you remove any User Content from Radwave, we may keep your User Content for a reasonable period of time for backup, archival, or audit purposes. Radwave and its users may retain and continue to use, store, display, reproduce, re-tag, modify, create derivative works, perform, and distribute any of your User Content that other users have stored or shared on Radwave.

3.4 We value hearing from our users and are always interested in learning about ways we can make Radwave better. If you choose to submit comments, ideas or feedback, you agree that we are free to use them without any restriction or compensation to you.

4.0 Radwave has adopted and implemented the Radwave Copyright Policy in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and other applicable copyright laws. For more information, please read our Copyright Policy. 

5.0 We care about the security of our users. While we work to protect the security of your content and account, Radwave can’t guarantee that unauthorized third parties won’t be able to defeat our security measures. We ask that you keep your password secure. Please notify us immediately of any compromise or unauthorized use of your account.

6.0 Radwave may contain links to third party websites, advertisers, services, special offers, or other events or activities that are not owned or controlled by Radwave. We don’t endorse or assume any responsibility for any such third-party sites, information, materials, products, or services. If you access any third-party website, service, or content from Radwave, you do so at your own risk and you agree that Radwave has no liability arising from your use of or access to any third party website, service, or content.

7.0 Radwave may terminate or suspend your right to access or use Radwave for any reason on appropriate notice. We may terminate or suspend your access immediately and without notice if we have a good reason, including any violation of our Community Guidelines. Upon termination, you continue to be bound by Sections 3 and 8 of these Terms.

8.0 If you use Radwave for commercial purposes (i.e., you are not a consumer) without agreeing to our Business Terms as required by Section 2.2 of these Terms, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless Radwave Inc, its affiliates and their respective officers, directors, employees and agents, from and against any claims, suits, proceedings, disputes, demands, liabilities, damages, losses, costs and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees (including costs of defense of claims, suits or proceedings brought by third parties), in any way related to your access to or use of our Service, your User Content, or your breach of any of these Terms.

9.0 Our Service, including all content on Radwave, is provided on an “as is” basis without warranty of any kind, whether express or implied. Radwave specifically disclaims any and all warranties and conditions of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and non-infringement, and any warranties arising out of course of dealing or usage of trade. Radwave takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any User Content that you or any other person or third party posts or sends using our Service. You understand and agree that you may be exposed to User Content that’s inaccurate, objectionable, inappropriate for children, or otherwise unsuited to your purpose.

If you see Content that is inaccurate, objectionable, inappropriate for children, or otherwise unsuited for your purpose, please report it to us at support@radwave.com.  

10.0 TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, RADWAVE SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, OR ANY LOSS OF PROFITS OR REVENUES, WHETHER INCURRED DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, OR ANY LOSS OF DATA, USE, GOODWILL, OR OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSSES, RESULTING FROM (A) YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF OR INABILITY TO ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICE; (B) ANY CONDUCT OR CONTENT OF ANY THIRD PARTY ON THE SERVICE, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY DEFAMATORY, OFFENSIVE OR ILLEGAL CONDUCT OF OTHER USERS OR THIRD PARTIES; OR (C) UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS, USE OR ALTERATION OF YOUR TRANSMISSIONS OR CONTENT. IN NO EVENT SHALL RADWAVE’S AGGREGATE LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ALL CLAIMS RELATING TO THE SERVICE EXCEED TWO HUNDRED U.S. DOLLARS (U.S. $200.00).

This limitation of liability won’t apply to any statutory liability that cannot be limited, to liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or willful misconduct.

11.0 For any dispute you have with Radwave, you agree to first contact us and try to resolve the dispute with us informally. If we need to contact you, we will do so at the email address on your Radwave account. If Radwave hasn’t been able to resolve the dispute with you informally, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) arising out of or in connection with or relating to these Terms through binding arbitration. The arbitration shall be conducted by one (1) arbitrator and the location of the arbitration shall be in Leesburg, Virginia unless otherwise agreement by Radwave and you. You agree that the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and Radwave are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. The arbitrator has exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of this binding arbitration agreement. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement and the termination of your Radwave account.

Any arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under the Commercial Arbitration Rules then in effect for the AAA, except as provided herein. Each party will be responsible for paying any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with AAA Rules. The arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision explaining the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, and any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall prevent either party from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts, including for matters related to data security, intellectual property or unauthorized access to the Service. ALL CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN THE PARTIES’ INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, AND, UNLESS RADWAVE AGREES OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S CLAIMS. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND RADWAVE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. NOTHING IN THESE TERMS OF SERVICE SHALL AFFECT ANY NON-WAIVABLE STATUTORY RIGHTS THAT APPLY TO YOU. To the extent any claim, dispute or controversy regarding Radwave or our Service isn’t arbitrable under applicable laws or otherwise: you and Radwave both agree that any claim or dispute regarding Radwave will be resolved exclusively in accordance with Section 12 of these Terms.

12.0 These Terms shall be governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The exclusive jurisdiction for all disputes arising from or in connection with this agreement is Loudoun County, Virginia or the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, Alexandria Division. Any dispute between you and Radwave will be determined under Virginia law. You waive any objection to the exercise of personal jurisdiction over you by either of these courts.

13.0 We reserve the right to determine the form and means of providing notifications to you, and you agree to receive legal notices electronically if that’s what we decide. We may revise these Terms from time to time and the most current version will always be posted on our website. If a revision, in our discretion, is material, we’ll notify you. By continuing to access or use Radwave after revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the new Terms. If you don’t agree to the new Terms, please stop using Radwave.

13.1 These Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Radwave without restriction and without your permission. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void.

13.2 These Terms, together with the Privacy Policy and any amendments and any additional agreements you may enter into with Radwave, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Radwave concerning the Service. If any provision of these Terms is deemed invalid, then that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary, and the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.

13.3 No waiver of any term of these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Radwave’s failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

13.4 These Terms are a contract between you and Radwave Inc., 525-K East Market Street #109, Leesburg, VA 20176, USA.

Privacy Policy - Full Version

Thanks for using Radwave!

1.0 Radwave created this platform to enable users, like you, to easily explore the spectrum to better understand the world around you. To ensure that Radwave is working, and to better understand what you find relevant, we collect information from you and third parties. We only use that information where we have a proper legal basis for doing so. This policy is to inform you about what information we collect, what we use it for, and what choices you have about it. If you have any questions and comments on this policy, please contact us at support@radwave.com.

2.0 Radwave collects information multiple ways. We’ll review these methods in the following subsections.

2.1 When you sign up for or use Radwave, you give us information voluntarily. This information includes your email address, name, and any other information you provided when signing up for a Radwave account. This also includes tags, collections, comments, and any other User Content that you create. You can also choose to share with us location data, photos, and other media. If you link your account from third-party services such as Facebook or Google to Radwave, we also obtain information from those accounts. This can include your friends, contacts, etc. The specific information Radwave gets from those services varies depending on your settings and their privacy policies. You are encouraged to check what those settings and policies are. Moreover, Radwave utilizes third-party services such as Google Admob to generate revenue. The specific information obtained from those services varies depending on the provider. You can look into what this entails by visiting their websites, and you can contact us at support@radwave.com for further information as well.

2.2 Radwave obtains technical information when you use Radwave. This includes data about the sensor you are using with Radwave, and your interactions with Radwave and the sensor. Radwave also looks at device usage statistics, such as battery and storage.

2.3 Just as with other mobile and web-based services, this also includes log data recorded by our servers and systems, such as information sent by your browser when you visit a website. This can include things such as browser type and settings, device information, date and time of requests and other interactions, and internet cookie data. When we use cookies or similar technologies, we use either session or persistent cookies, depending on the type of data involved. For instance, authentication data may be stored in a session cookie, whereas language and other user preferences may be stored in persistent cookies. If you’d like additional information about this, please contact us at support@radwave.com.

2.4 Particularly since Radwave is a beta product, we’re interested in crash reports. If you experience technical issues with Radwave, please let us know at support@radwave.com so we can work to fix it. We do collect crash reports automatically, but those can be limited. Direct user feedback is always appreciated. We also collect information about device type and settings, which can vary depending on the type of device being used.

3.0 Radwave uses this information to improve our products and services. By looking at how users interact with Radwave, and by receiving feedback of user experiences, we are able to better understand how to modify and enhance Radwave to better serve you. We are also able to respond to your questions. Further, by looking at how two versions of a feature are used in Radwave, we can determine which is preferred.

3.1 Radwave also uses this information to identify you when you use Radwave.

3.2 Radwave also uses this information to work with law enforcement and maintain Radwave as a safe and lawful platform. Radwave respects the civil liberties of its users, and only provides user information to law enforcement with sufficient due process, e.g. when a verified law enforcement officer provides a search warrant. If you have further questions about this process, please contact us at support@radwave.com.

4.0 In addition to the circumstances above, we use the information above with your consent to send you marketing materials. When we do so, we provide an option to unsubscribe.

5.0 With the exception of password changes, after signing up for a Radwave account, the easiest method to editing information about your account or closing it is to email us at support@radwave.com. We can verify everything on our end so that you can rest easy. When you close your account, we deactivate it and remove your tags and User Content from Radwave.

5.1 You also have choices about how information is handled through the browser and device that you use. Your browser allows you to control cookies and other local data storage. Your device asks for permission about sharing information such as your location with Radwave. To learn more about these options, please refer to documentation from the providers and manufacturers of those software and products.

6.0 Radwave shares information for a few different reasons. We’ll review these reasons in the following subsections.

6.1 Whenever you share a spectral tag, the tag, User Content, and associated metadata such as time and frequency information are shared with other third party services, such as Facebook or Twitter.

6.2 You should also be aware that Radwave may in the future change the way that content is shared. You will be notified of such an event in advance via the email address you provide when you sign up for a Radwave account.

6.3 Data is also shared with third party companies or individuals that we employ to process information on our behalf. In such instances, these companies and individuals are acting based on our instruction and in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Some information we acquire may be collected by third party providers on our behalf.

6.4 Radwave shares information with third parties that we use to audit or improve performance of content on websites and apps, for instance with Google Analytics. If you’d like more details about this, feel free to ask us at support@radwave.com.

6.5 We also share information with law enforcement and other government agencies if we believe that it is reasonably necessary to
    • comply with a law, regulation or legal request
    • to protect the safety, rights, privacy or property of the public, any person(s), or Radwave
    • to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues.

6.6 If Radwave were to engage in a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, reorganization, or similar transaction or proceeding that involves the transfer of information described in this Policy, we would share your information with a party involved in such a process (for example, a potential purchaser).

7.0 Radwave keeps your information only so long as we need it to provide Radwave to you and fulfill the purposes described in this policy. This is also the case for anyone that we share your information with and who carries out services on our behalf. When we no longer need to use your information and there is no need for us to keep it to comply with our legal or regulatory obligations, we’ll either remove it from our systems or depersonalize it so that we can’t identify you. 

8.0 Children under 13 are not allowed to use Radwave. If you are a parent and you learn that your child is using Radwave and you don’t want them to, please contact us at support@radwave.com.

9.0 We may change this policy occasionally. If and when that happens, those changes will be updated on this page. If you continue to use Radwave after those changes are in effect, you agree to the new policy. If the changes are significant, we may provide a more prominent notice or get your consent, as required by law.

10.0 If you ever want or need to contact us, please do so by emailing us at support@radwave.com. You can also contact us at Radwave, Inc. 525-K East Market Street #109, Leesburg, VA 20176.

Privacy Policy

Thanks for using Radwave!

1.0 Radwave created this platform to enable users, like you, to easily explore the spectrum to better understand the world around you. This version of Radwave - Radwave Anonymous - is designed to do so while maintaining your privacy. To ensure that Radwave is working, we collect information from you and third parties. We only use that information where we have a proper legal basis for doing so. This policy is to inform you about what information we collect, what we use it for, and what choices you have about it. If you have any questions and comments on this policy, please contact us at support@radwave.com.

2.0 First, when you open Radwave, it first determines which country you are in. Radwave utilizes a combination of TelephonyManager.getNetworkCountryIso() and geoip-db to do so. Radwave only uses this country information on your device, and never collects it or stores it. The country information is used to determine what data privacy regulations are applicable, and the Radwave app uses this information to determine how to - and how not to - handle your data. If you are reading this, it has been determined that you are in Radwave’s anonymous region. In the anonymous region, Radwave collects information - and does not collect information - multiple ways. We’ll review these methods in the following subsections.

2.1.0 When you sign up for or use Radwave, you give us information voluntarily. This information includes your email address, name, and that you accept our Terms and Conditions when signing up for a Radwave account. This also includes spectral tags, spectral collections, and any other User Content that you create. However, Radwave does NOT associate you or any of your account information with the User Content that you create.

2.1.1 Radwave explicitly does NOT allow you to share any User Content that could contain personal data. This includes location data, photos, audio, video, user-provided text, and other content. Further, Radwave does NOT associate any of the spectral tags, spectral collections or any other User Content with your email or other user account information. Radwave does NOT allow you to link your account to third-party services such as Facebook or Google to Radwave. Radwave does NOT utilize any third-party ad services to generate revenue. You can always contact us at support@radwave.com for further information as well.

2.1.2 It is noted that the spectral tags and spectral collections in Radwave do NOT contain personal data. Raw, time-domain digital signals collected by Software Defined Radios (SDRs) can contain personal data, e.g. unencrypted analog-modulated human voice broadcast over radio. However, the processing performed in Radwave is irreversible and specifically designed to make such personal data unrecoverable. This processing includes first calculating the Power Spectral Density (PSD). This calculation removes the phase (i.e. timing) of each frequency component of the underlying signal. This phase information is critical to recovering the time-domain signal. Without it, demodulating the radio signal is impossible for all analog and most digital modulations. The only exceptions are Frequency Shift Keying (FSK) and On-Off Keying (OOK) digital modulations. In order to prevent FSK and OOK signals from being demodulated, Radwave limits the resolution of the spectral display. This limit constrains the maximum data rate that can be demodulated, to the point where no modern/personal-use communication systems can be demodulated from the Radwave spectral collections. Therefore, spectral collections and spectral tags and Radwave do NOT contain personal data.

2.2 Radwave obtains technical information when you use Radwave. This includes data about the sensor you are using with Radwave, and your interactions with Radwave and the sensor. Radwave also looks at device usage statistics, such as battery and storage. It does so without associating you or any of your user account information to such data, therefore keeping this data completely anonymous.

2.3 Just as with other mobile and web-based services, this also includes log data recorded by our servers and systems, such as information sent by your browser when you visit a website. This can include things such as browser type and settings, device information, date and time of requests and other interactions. If you’d like additional information about this, please contact us at support@radwave.com.

2.4 Particularly since Radwave is a beta product, we’re interested in crash reports. If you experience technical issues with Radwave, please let us know at support@radwave.com so we can work to fix it. We do collect crash reports automatically, but those can be limited. Direct user feedback is always appreciated. We also collect information about device type and settings, which can vary depending on the type of device being used. This crash report data does not include any personal data, and is not associated with any of your user account information. It is completely anonymous.

3.0 Radwave uses this information to improve our products and services. By looking at how users interact with Radwave, and by receiving feedback of user experiences, we are able to better understand how to modify and enhance Radwave to better serve you. We are also able to respond to your questions. Further, by looking at how two versions of a feature are used in Radwave, we can determine which is preferred.

3.1 Radwave also uses this information to identify you when you log into Radwave, ensuring that you have accepted the most recent terms and conditions, and allowing you to update your account information.

3.2 Radwave also uses this information to work with law enforcement and maintain Radwave as a safe and lawful platform. Radwave respects the civil liberties of its users, and only provides user information to law enforcement with sufficient due process, e.g. when a verified law enforcement officer provides a search warrant. If you have further questions about this process, please contact us at support@radwave.com.

4.0 In addition to the circumstances above, we use the information above with your consent to send you marketing materials. When we do so, we provide an option to unsubscribe.

5.0 With the exception of password changes, after signing up for a Radwave account, the easiest method to editing information about your account or closing it is to email us at support@radwave.com. We can verify everything on our end so that you can rest easy. When you close your account, we deactivate it and remove your tags and User Content from Radwave.

5.1 You also have choices about how information is handled through the browser and device that you use. Your browser allows you to control cookies and other local data storage. Your device asks for permission about sharing information and device capabilities with Radwave, for example permission to access an RTL-SDR. To learn more about these options, please refer to documentation from the providers and manufacturers of those software and products.

6.0 Radwave shares information for a few different reasons. We’ll review these reasons in the following subsections.

6.1 Whenever you share a spectral tag, the tag, User Content, and associated metadata such as time and frequency information are shared with other third party services, such as Facebook or Twitter. This does NOT contain any personal data or information associated with your account, such as your email.

6.2 You should also be aware that Radwave may in the future change the way that content is shared. You will be notified of such an event in advance via the email address you provide when you sign up for a Radwave account.

6.3 Data is also shared with third party companies or individuals that we employ to process information on our behalf. In such instances, these companies and individuals are acting based on our instruction and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

6.4 Radwave shares information with third parties that we use to audit or improve performance of content on websites and apps, for instance with Google Analytics. If you’d like more details about this, feel free to ask us at support@radwave.com.

6.5 We also share information with law enforcement and other government agencies if we believe that it is reasonably necessary to
    • comply with a law, regulation or legal request
    • to protect the safety, rights, privacy or property of the public, any person(s), or Radwave
    • to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues.

6.6 If Radwave were to engage in a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, reorganization, or similar transaction or proceeding that involves the transfer of information described in this Policy, we would share your information with a party involved in such a process (for example, a potential purchaser).

7.0 Radwave keeps your information only so long as we need it to provide Radwave to you and fulfill the purposes described in this policy. This is also the case for anyone that we share your information with and who carries out services on our behalf. When we no longer need to use your information and there is no need for us to keep it to comply with our legal or regulatory obligations, we’ll either remove it from our systems or depersonalize it so that we can’t identify you. 

8.0 Children under 13 are not allowed to use Radwave. If you are a parent and you learn that your child is using Radwave and you don’t want them to, please contact us at support@radwave.com.

9.0 We may change this policy occasionally. If and when that happens, those changes will be updated on this page. If you continue to use Radwave after those changes are in effect, you agree to the new policy. If the changes are significant, we may provide a more prominent notice or get your consent, as required by law.

10.0 If you ever want or need to contact us, please do so by emailing us at support@radwave.com. You can also contact us at Radwave, Inc. 525-K East Market Street #109, Leesburg, VA 20176.
