11. Lively Services
11.1 Lively Urgent Response
11.1.1 How Lively Wearable Works With Urgent Response
In the event help is needed, pushing the button on your Lively Wearable device will alert Lively Urgent Response through your connected smartphone using the Lively app. Calls with Lively Urgent Response are made through your compatible smartphone using the Lively app and use wireless plan minutes like a normal cellular call. For Android and iOS applications, your connected smartphone will automatically place an outgoing call to Lively Urgent Response. In some cases, Apple iOS, Lively Urgent Response will place an incoming call to your connected smartphone that you must answer to connect.
Lively Urgent Response is only available in the United States. Lively Urgent Response IS NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR 9-1-1, and in fact, if Lively Urgent Response conferences in 9-1-1 emergency services on your behalf, there could be a delay in reaching 9-1-1 emergency services. The Service will only work if your account is current on payment and if your device is charged, turned on, has network access, and Lively Urgent Response is enabled. Lively Urgent Response may not be available in remote or enclosed areas.
You agree that once you enroll in a Lively Health and Safety plan, we will be able to track your approximate location whenever your Lively Wearable is paired and connected by Bluetooth to your compatible, powered-on smartphone. You agree that we can provide this information to third-party service providers and authorized Lively Link contacts in case of an emergency or service incident. However, we cannot guarantee that we can track your exact location, and, in some cases, we may only be able to provide the information provided in your Personal Emergency Profile.
11.1.2 Your Use Of 5Star Urgent Response
You promise not to use Lively Urgent Response for any fraudulent, unlawful, or abusive purpose, or in any way that interferes with our provision of services to our other customers. If you do any of these things, you agree you will be responsible for any amount anyone else claims from us, plus any expenses, resulting in whole or in part from your actions. You are solely responsible for maintaining the content and accuracy of your Personal Emergency Profile in the Lively app.
11.1.3 Your Interactions With Lively Urgent Response Agents
We may record and monitor conversations between you and our Agents, emergency service providers, the police, or other third parties. Please note that our Agents may also remain on the line if they conference in a third-party to assist in completing a service request. Please understand that Lively Urgent Response is not required to release any audio or physical records that are created as part of the Lively Urgent Response without a subpoena (unless otherwise required by law). We will do our best to accommodate you if English is not your first language and you require translation services, but we cannot guarantee the availability or competence of a third-party translator.
11.1.4 Connection To Other Service Providers
Our agents may link, conference or transfer you to other service providers such as the police, fire department, ambulance service, 9-1-1 emergency services or towing service. We’ll use reasonable efforts to contact appropriate service providers for help when you ask for it, but we can’t promise that any service providers will respond in a timely manner or at all. Furthermore, we can’t promise we will provide the best service provider or guarantee any level of service from such service provider. The laws in some places require an emergency situation to be confirmed before emergency service providers will provide service. We will not contact emergency service providers in these locations in response to your call if we cannot hear your request for assistance or otherwise confirm that an emergency exists. We will attempt to have an Agent contact you after you have completed a 9-1-1 call to make sure that you do not need additional assistance but cannot guarantee this service in all cases or for all devices.
11.1.5 Your Responsibility For Others Who Use Your Lively Urgent Response Service
You are solely responsible for any use of Lively Urgent Response associated with your Lively Wearable, even if you are not the one using it, and even if you later claim the use was not authorized. You are also solely responsible for the Services requested by you, or by anyone using the service through Lively Urgent Response on your behalf. You agree that our agent may share your information with any authorized person calling Lively Urgent Response on your behalf.
11.2 Optional Services
Additional terms and conditions may apply to your use of Optional Services. If applicable, these terms and conditions are incorporated by reference and made a part of this Agreement. You agree to abide by such other terms and conditions, including where applicable representing that you are of sufficient legal age to use or participate in such service or product. If there is a conflict between this Agreement and the terms and conditions applicable to a specific service or product, the latter terms shall control with respect to your use of that portion of that service or product.
11.2.1 Lively Link
Lively Link allows you to authorize contacts to have access to information about your Lively Wearable services. The information authorized contacts may access includes the battery status of your paired and connected Lively Wearable, up to 30 days of step counts and Daily Challenge and points history, as well as up to 30 days of logged falls or calls to Lively Urgent Response, including location information at the time of the Lively Urgent Response event. Authorized contacts may access this information through the Lively Link smartphone or web app. You may add or remove authorized contacts at any time through your Lively app. Lively Link is available with the purchase of the Preferred or Ultimate Health and Safety plan.
11.2.2. Fall Detection
Fall Detection works only when wearing Lively Wearable around the neck in the specially designed and included lanyard. Fall Detection works in conjunction with your Lively Urgent Response. Using patented algorithms, the service detects falls and, through Lively app on your Bluetooth-connected smartphone, alerts Lively Urgent Response that you need help. You will have an opportunity to cancel the call to Lively Urgent Response if you do not need assistance.
We cannot guarantee that the Service will always accurately determine a fall. You should always push their button when you need help, if possible. Button signal range may vary due to device sensitivity, battery strength, and other environmental factors. Fall Detection is available with the purchase of the Ultimate Health and Safety plan.
11.2.3. Urgent Care
Lively Urgent Response agents are in every one of our Lively Caring Centers and are available at the touch of a button on the Lively Wearable. In addition to being certified by International Academies of Emergency Dispatch (IAED), our Agents are trained to help with common situations like getting lost or hearing noises at night. Lively Urgent Response Agents can connect seniors to on-call doctors and nurses, and even send an Urgent Care, brought to you in partnership with FONEMED®, is not a substitute for dialing 9-1-1 and should not be used in a case of emergency. If you are experiencing a medical emergency, you should seek appropriate emergency medical assistance or call 9-1-1- immediately. FONEMED’s registered nurses and doctors offer advice regarding health care decisions and may prescribe prescriptions and refills for common medications over the phone.
We are not a health care provider and do not provide health care services or medical advice. FONEMED has confirmed that all of its nurses and doctors have appropriate licenses as required under state law. Because we are not a health care provider, we are not equipped to validate or confirm the accuracy or completeness of any of the advice made available by FONEMED or to determine whether such advice is appropriate for you or your specific needs and we are neither qualified to evaluate, nor responsible for assuring, that these nurses and doctors have the necessary expertise to provide appropriate advice to you. We are not liable for any act or omission, including negligence, of FONEMED or any FONEMED employee, contractor or agent. Use of Lively Urgent Response does not create any kind of treatment or other patient relationship with doctors or nurses. You should always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health care provider if you have any questions about medical treatment or a medical condition.
11.2.4 Lively Protection Plan

20. DISPUTE RESOLUTION BY BINDING ARBITRATION (THIS SECTION DOES NOT APPLY TO AARP MEMBERS)
ANY DISPUTE INVOLVING YOU AND BEST BUY OR ANY OF ITS AGENTS MUST BE RESOLVED THROUGH INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION, EXCEPT AS FOLLOWS:
ANY DISPUTE FALLING WITHIN THE JURISDICTIONAL SCOPE AND AMOUNT OF AN APPROPRIATE SMALL CLAIMS COURT MUST BE BROUGHT IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS; AND
ANY DISPUTE TO SEEK TO ENJOIN INFRINGEMENT OR OTHER MISUSE OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS MAY BE BROUGHT IN ANY COURT OF COMPETENT JURISDICTION.
“Dispute” shall be interpreted broadly and cover any claim or controversy arising out of or relating in any way whatsoever to your relationship or interaction with Best Buy, its agents, and its present and future subsidiaries, affiliates, and designees – including, but not limited to, GreatCall, Lively, Geek Squad, Magnolia, and Pacific Sales – whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory. Examples of relationships or interactions giving rise to a covered claim include, without limitation: (1) your use of Best Buy’s websites; (2) your membership in any Best Buy loyalty or rewards program (e.g., My Best Buy®) or subscription-based services (e.g., Total Tech Support); (3) your receipt of delivery, repair or installation services or consultation services provided by Best Buy or its agents; (4) any communications between you and Best Buy; (5) application for financing; and/or (6) your purchase of products or services offered, sold, or distributed by Best Buy including, but not limited to, any Dispute arising from the advertising of, or the sales practices related to, such products and services. If you are a My Best Buy® member, Dispute shall also include all disputes that arose before your enrollment in, and after the cancellation or termination of, the My Best Buy® program, including any claims that are the subject of a purported class action litigation.
BY AGREEING TO ARBITRATION, YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO MAINTAIN OTHER AVAILABLE RESOLUTION PROCESSES, SUCH AS A COURT ACTION OR ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEEDING, TO SETTLE DISPUTES. THE RULES IN ARBITRATION ARE DIFFERENT. THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY, LESS DISCOVERY, AND LIMITED APPELLATE REVIEW. ARBITRATORS CAN AWARD THE SAME DAMAGES AND RELIEF THAT A COURT CAN AWARD.
Either Party may initiate an arbitration proceeding by sending a demand to the American Arbitration Association (AAA) that describes the basis for the claim. You may serve a copy of a demand on our registered agent CT Corporation System, Inc., 100 South Fifth Street, Suite 1075, Minneapolis, MN 55402. The arbitration will be governed by the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules or Commercial Arbitration Rules (collectively, the “AAA Rules”), as appropriate, and as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and the form for filing an arbitration claim are available at www.adr.org. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA’s Rules; however, we will reimburse those fees (but not any attorney’s fees) for claims totaling less than $10,000 except where (1) the claims fall within the jurisdictional scope and amount of an appropriate small claims court and, despite the requirement in this provision that such claims be brought in small claims court, you instead filed with AAA; or (2) the arbitrator determines your claims are frivolous. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all such fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In such case, you agree to reimburse Best Buy for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed upon location.
YOU AND BEST BUY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, CONSOLIDATED, OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. THIS MEANS THAT YOU MAY NOT PURPORT TO ACT ON BEHALF OF A CLASS OR ANY OTHER PERSON. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. The arbitrator may not award relief for or against anyone who is not a party to the arbitration proceeding. Further, unless both you and Best Buy agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If a court determines that public injunctive relief may not be waived and all appeals from that decision have been exhausted, then the parties agree that any claim for public injunctive relief shall be stayed pending arbitration of the remaining claims. If this specific paragraph is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this dispute resolution provision (except for the jury trial waiver) shall be null and void.
If for any reason a claim may proceed in court rather than in arbitration, WE EACH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL, UNLESS SUCH WAIVER IS UNENFORCEABLE. THIS MEANS THAT ANY CLAIM WOULD BE DECIDED BY A JUDGE, NOT A JURY.
This dispute resolution provision shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. It shall survive any termination or cancellation of, or your participation in, any membership programs or subscription services. Any amendments to this dispute resolution provision shall not affect any then active or pending arbitration proceeding.
21. This Is The Entire Agreement
These Terms, in additional to the policies and other terms referenced herein, are the entire agreement between you and us with respect to your Lively Wearable device and Services. The Terms supersede all other agreements or representations, oral or written, between us, past or present, and may not be amended except in a writing signed by us, unless otherwise stated herein.
