Two Levels of Membership. HALOS offers two levels of membership.
- Those who are legally entitled to carry a handgun. These individuals either (a) have a state issued concealed carry permit or (b) reside in a Constitutional Carry state within which a permit is not required to carry a handgun. Members in this category may broadcast their approximate and anonymous location to other HALOS users. At any time, HALOS reserves the right to request additional information from these members in order to validate their legal status to carry a handgun in their state of residence. This may include the requirement to submit a photo of your state-issued concealed carry permit, driver’s license, or any other information that is included on such permits. HALOS reserves the right to revoke membership with no recourse or refund if a member knowingly submits false information.
- Those who are NOT legally entitled to carry a handgun or are legally allowed to carry a handgun due to residence in a Constitutional Carry state, but choose not to. These members have the ability to view the approximate and anonymous location of members who are legally entitled to carry a handgun and choose to broadcast their location.
Your Account - If you use any HALOS Services, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for restricting access to your mobile device, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account. HALOS reserves the right to refuse service, terminate accounts, remove or edit content, or cancel orders in its sole discretion.
Member Content - Members may be able to post content to HALOS or send communications; submit comments or questions, so long as the content is not illegal, obscene, threatening, defamatory, invasive of privacy, infringing of intellectual property rights, or otherwise injurious to third parties or objectionable, and does not consist of or contain software viruses, political campaigning, commercial solicitation, chain letters, mass mailings, or any form of "spam" or unsolicited commercial electronic messages. You may not use a false e-mail address, impersonate any person or entity, or otherwise mislead as to the origin of content. HALOS reserves the right (but not the obligation) to remove or edit such content.
If you do post content or submit material, and unless we indicate otherwise, you grant HALOS a nonexclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, and fully sub-licensable right to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, perform, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, and display such content throughout the world in any media.

HALOS takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any content posted by you or any third party.
Product Sales - HALOS may sell physical products. All items purchased from HALOS are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier. HALOS does not take title to returned items until the item arrives at our fulfillment center. At our discretion, a refund may be issued without requiring a return. In this situation, HALOS does not take title to the refunded item.

However, HALOS does not warrant that product descriptions or other content of any Service is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. If a Service offered by HALOS is not as described, your sole remedy is to stop using the Service.
Pricing - Use of the Service requires an annual membership fee that is auto-billed via your mobile application. We may defer billing until your particular region accrues a meaningful level of membership, however this decision is at the sole discretion of Halos Force LLC. If your application has been accepted and fraud or mis-representation is later identified in your application, your membership will be revoked and HALOS will not refund your membership fee or any unused portion of your membership thereof.
App Permissions - When you use HALOS, you grant certain permissions to us for your device. Most mobile devices provide you with information about these permissions.
United States Use Only - You represent and warrant that you are located in the U.S. and that you will not use the Services when not in the U.S.

DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY - THE HALOS SERVICES AND ALL INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) AND OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE HALOS SERVICES ARE PROVIDED BY HALOS ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING. HALOS MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO THE OPERATION OF THE HALOS SERVICES, OR THE INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE HALOS SERVICES, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING. YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THE HALOS SERVICES IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK.
TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY APPLICABLE LAW, HALOS DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. HALOS DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE HALOS SERVICES, INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE HALOS SERVICES, HALOS' SERVERS OR ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS SENT FROM HALOS ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS. HALOS WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES OF ANY KIND ARISING FROM THE USE OF ANY HALOS SERVICE, OR FROM ANY INFORMATION, CONTENT, REPRESENTATIONS, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH ANY HALOS SERVICE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, AND CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING.
CERTAIN STATE LAWS DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF CERTAIN DAMAGES. IF THESE LAWS APPLY TO YOU, SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE DISCLAIMERS, EXCLUSIONS, OR LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU, AND YOU MIGHT HAVE ADDITIONAL RIGHTS.
Additionally, and without derogating from the above clause, HALOS disclaims any warranties relating to the accuracy of the maps, Content, or member carry status displayed in or by the Service. For instance, members may appear on the map and represent themselves as carrying a gun, but in fact are not. Such errors are inherent to any community-based service that operates on information provided by its members.
You agree and acknowledge that you assume full, exclusive and sole responsibility for the use of and reliance on the Services, and you further agree and acknowledge that your use of or reliance on the Services is made entirely at your own risk. You further acknowledge that it is your responsibility to comply with all applicable laws (including gun laws) while using the Services.
Disputes - Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of any Service, or to any products or services sold or distributed by HALOS will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Conditions of Use as a court would.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a registered letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to HALOS. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. HALOS may seek attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration. You must have the arbitration conducted in person in Lincoln County, Wyoming.
We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
