Terms and Conditions for trackinapack GPS Tracking Service
These terms and conditions (“Terms”) apply to the provision of tracking panel services by mytrackingdevices.com LLC (referred to as “trackinapack”, “we” or “us”) to purchasers of any trackinapack GPS devices sold by or on behalf of trackinapack from time to time for use with the tracking panel (each a “Device”). The term “you” refers to the end user of the Device who intends to use the trackinapack tracking panel service provided at: http://www.trackinapack.com, http://www.trackinapack.net The trackinapack tracking panel service is referred to as the “Service”.
It is a condition of our providing the Service that you accept these Terms. These Terms and those appearing on our website at http://www.trackinapack.com/service-terms-conditions are the entire statement of the contract between us and you agree that you have not entered into these Terms in reliance on any statement or representation made by or on behalf of us.
Activating the Device
Your Device consists of a GPS tracker, which determines the location of the Device by using signals from GPS satellites, and a GSM mobile phone SIM, which is used to report that location over the mobile phone network of our preferred supplier, to the Service. Accordingly:
1. You accept that the Device must be able to communicate with the appropriate GPS satellites, by line of sight, so the Device will generally not work indoors or where the line of sight is obscured;
2. You also accept that the Device must be in the reception range of our preferred GSM network supplier. If the Device loses connection, the Service will continue to show the last known location of the Device.
Use of SIM card
If you damage the supplied SIM, you may not be able to use the Service until we send you a replacement. We will charge you $50 for a replacement SIM card.
PLEASE NOTE that the Device and Service are set up to work ONLY with the SIMs we provide. You must not use any other SIM with your Device as it will not work with the Service. If you need to use another SIM, for example because you are using the Device in a country for which we do not supply SIMs, please contact us and we will endeavour to unlock the Device so you can use the Service, in return for a $50 one time charge. We cannot guarantee that third party SIMs will work with the Device or the Service.
Please note that opening or tampering with the Device, including by replacing the SIM with a third party SIM, may invalidate the warranty (see warranty).
As with any GPS or mobile data device, the accuracy of the location information shown on the tracking panel depends on, amongst other things, the quality of the connection between the Device and the GPS satellites and the connection with the mobile phone network. These can be affected by environmental factors such as bad weather or the presence of tall buildings and information can be delayed, corrupted or lost. The information on the tracking panel is therefore to be regarded as being a guide to the location of the Device at the time of the last update received from it, and subject to error. At best, the Device is accurate to around 5 metres.
We do not warrant that the Service will be available at all times, as (in addition to the factors mentioned above), it may be down for maintenance or as a result of a fault. We will endeavour to fix faults as quickly as we can.
Accordingly, we cannot accept liability for any loss or damage incurred by you or any third party using your Device, arising from the Service or the Device, from any information displayed as part of the Service or from any unavailability of any of them. Use of the Device and the Service is not a substitute for proper care and supervision of the item to which the Device is attached. It is your responsibility to ensure you have any relevant insurance and to consider and decide whether the Device and Service are appropriate for your needs.
Our total liability to you and any third party using your Device, arising out of or in connection with the Device or the Service, and whether in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise, will be limited to the aggregate of the price paid for the Device and the most recent charges paid for the Service (if any). We do not accept liability for any indirect or consequential losses, or for loss of profit, business or revenue, whether direct or indirect.
If at any time we believe that you have broken these Terms or the terms of any other agreement with us, or are using the Device or the Service improperly or illegally, we may terminate or suspect the provision of the Service immediately. We will inform you by text or e-mail to the contact details you have given us if we have taken, or intend to take, such action.
Use of information
We will collect personal information about you when you register with us, to enable us to set up an account with us and with our mobile phone provider, and so that we can provide the Service to you. As part of the Service, we will send you SMS, e-mails and other messages and alerts in accordance with the way you have configured the Service and to inform you of changes or problems. It is important therefore that you keep your contact details up to date.
In order to provide the Service, we may store or process your data outside the USA.
By entering into these Terms, you agree that we may collect, store, use and disclose your data, and contact you, as set out above.
We will not give your information to any third parties for marketing purposes or disclose them to anyone other than as needed to provide the Service or as required by any applicable laws or civil authorities. We will comply with the Data Protection Act and associated legislation.
PLEASE NOTE: you may be breaking data protection and other laws if you use the Device to track a person without that person’s consent. We cannot accept liability in respect of any such use, whether with or without consent.

PLEASE NOTE: our SIM cards are set up to work on our selected network within usa (or such other country as we may have agreed with you at the time of registration) (the “Base Network”.). Data roaming charges may apply for using another network or if you use the Device outside USA. Our roaming and top-up charges for use other than on the Base Network will be clearly published on this website or explained to you at the time of top-up or use on the other network.
