Altia Systems, Inc. (“Altia”) owns and operates a website located at www.panacast.com (the “Site”) that, along with a software application for mobile device and PC platforms (each, an “App”), and a camera that permits streaming of panoramic video (the “Camera”) enables a variety of innovative features for live video content (the Site and App, together with any other products and services provided by Altia, are collectively referred to as the “Services”). We are pleased to offer you access to the Services conditioned on your acceptance without modification of the following Terms of Service (the “Terms”).
1. Our Services.
1.1 These Terms govern your use of our Services, including, our Site, the App, and the Camera. When you access our Site, you can learn about our products and services, and submit questions and comments to us through panacast.net/about.
1.2 The Camera and the App work together. A user of our Services who purchase the Camera can configure the Camera via the web portal. When you configure your Camera, you will be able to change the Personal Identification Number (“PIN”), assign a name to the Camera, and select your preferred security configuration. You can provide the PIN to third parties whom you authorize to access video that you stream over the Internet using the Camera.
1.3 A user of our Services who downloads the App, can access authorized video streams by entering the applicable PIN. When you enter the PIN, that information is sent over the Internet to servers maintained by Altia where we authenticate the number you provided to locate the address of the Camera and video stream you have been authorized to view. The streaming video is then sent directly to your device over the Internet. Once a video session has started, we have no control over or access to the video stream. While watching a video, you will be able to pan through the video image and zoom into portions of the video, at your election.
2. Eligibility; Information and PIN; Services Access.

2.2 You agree that the information you provide to Altia at all times will be true, accurate, current, and complete. To use the Services, you may be asked to enter the PIN that has been provided to you.

You will not be entitled to claim damages for such suspension or limitation of the use of any Services.
