Terms and Privacy Policy

Terms and Privacy Policy (“Terms”)

 

 

Welcome to FordPass, a platform that will empower you to rethink the way you travel. These Terms describe programs and features currently available as well as features we expect to add in the future. The Terms apply to all of the features described below, but you can check the FordPass website and mobile app to see which ones are currently available. Some features of FordPass may only be available on the App or the Site. FordPass may also integrate with other services or devices, and these features may be subject to separate or supplemental terms or privacy practices – these will be presented to you in connection with that feature.

 

Before we get started, we want you to know how FordPass works and we need you to agree to our Terms. Please review carefully and click I accept to agree. Your acceptance and use of FordPass is your agreement to our Terms.

 

A few important points:

 

We update FordPass from time to time to introduce new features or fix issues. In some cases, you may need to install the newest version of the App before you can use FordPass again.

 

Because of this, and because of things like network failures, dead batteries, or lost phones, make sure that you can always access your vehicle even if you can’t access FordPass – always take your key or key fob with you, and check your in-vehicle systems if any information in FordPass doesn’t seem right. And only use FordPass when it’s safe to do so. 

 

These Terms contain important information about FordPass and FordPass Rewards, as well as disclaimers and other provisions that limit our liability to you. FordPass and FordPass Rewards are services that rely on data from you, your mobile device, and your vehicle, such as location and driving characteristics, so we can deliver you great functionality and services, and communications tailored to your interests. Please see our Privacy Policy below for more information. Further, you agree to make all other drivers, passengers or guests of your vehicle aware of these Terms and subject to these Terms including owner access to Connected Vehicle Information (as defined in Section 2, below). You are solely responsible for the use of FordPass and its features for your vehicle, even if you are not the one using FordPass or features and even if you claim later that another persons’ use was not authorized, and agree only vehicles owned by you or a member of your household may be registered to your FordPass account.

FordPass is only open to individuals; companies, groups and organizations cannot be members. To join, you must have a valid email address at the time of enrollment. Each email address may be only associated with one Ford member account (“FP Account”). Individuals may not have multiple memberships. However, a household may have more than one membership. Individuals who have the same permanent address are members of the same household (“Household”). FP Accounts cannot be merged or transferred.

 

FordPass allows you to set profile information and certain preferences in your account. You may not create names that are profane or obscene.

Subject to Section 8, we may modify these Terms or modify, update, correct, suspend, or discontinue or cancel FordPass, any feature, program, functionality or manner of operation at any time without notice or any obligation to you. As permitted by applicable laws, any modifications will be effective immediately upon being posted on FordPass, or at such later time as Ford may specify, and your continued use of FordPass or its features will indicate your acceptance of the modified Terms. Ford may alert you through FordPass of any material changes to these Terms and allow you an opportunity to accept the modified Terms. Please see Section 8 below for the FordPass Rewards Terms and modification policies for updates to the FordPass Rewards Terms. FordPass or FordPass Rewards may not be available during maintenance or at other times.

 

If you do not agree to these Terms or any modification of these Terms or of FordPass, then your sole recourse is to stop using FordPass and you must immediately stop using FordPass.

 

b. System Requirements/Software Updates/Uninstallation

Certain FordPass features may require your vehicle to have a compatible SYNC in-vehicle infotainment system or an embedded modem, such as FordPass Connect, or another connectivity device. If your vehicle is equipped with the SYNC in-vehicle system, embedded modem or another connectivity device, the SYNC, embedded modem or another connectivity device software, part of the vehicle’s operating system, (“Software”) may be able to be remotely updated. Data usage rates and fees may apply. You agree that we (or our affiliates or service providers) may remotely check and automatically update the Software and your use of the Software is in accordance with the vehicle software End User License Agreement (“EULA”) provided in your vehicle Owner Manual. You further agree that Ford, its affiliates, service providers, and/or designated agents may periodically remotely check the version of the Software and may automatically remotely deliver Software updates, upgrades, supplements, or changes to the Software without any further notice or additional consent. For example, these updates or changes may enhance safety or security, provide improved functionality or may maintain the proper operation of the vehicle. Certain functionality may be limited or interrupted during the delivery of these Software updates or changes. These Software updates or changes may affect or erase data that you have stored in the vehicle. We are not responsible for any affected or erased data due to a Software update or change. You may withdraw consent from receiving the Software updates or changes at any time by performing a vehicle master reset, or changing your preference in the settings, where equipped. If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact us (see Section 2 below, for contact details). Ford is obtaining consent to provide Software updates on its behalf and on behalf of Ford Motor Company. (Customer Relationship Center, P.O. Box 6248, Dearborn, MI 48126, 1-800-392-3673).

 

Not all features or services will be available in all markets and coverage may be limited, including due to your vehicle capability and data plan coverage. Availability of features is subject to change and dependent on mobile device and vehicle capability and the internet access available to you. Some features may only be available through the Site or through the App. FordPass may be unavailable or interrupted from time to time for a variety of reasons, such as environmental or topographical conditions and data plan coverage.

 

You are responsible for keeping your FordPass account information and password secret, and for any activity that occurs under your account, including unauthorized activity. You agree to notify Ford immediately of any unauthorized use of your account or password.

We may share information related to the current status of vehicle systems and vehicle health alerts (“Vehicle Health Information”) obtained through FordPass and FordPass Rewards, including information regarding FordPass Rewards such as point balances, with our authorized dealers so they may more conveniently assist in the diagnosis and repair of the vehicle. You may be able to disable the sharing of Vehicle Health Information by visiting your account Privacy Settings.

 

You may be able to check in your vehicle to see if your vehicle is equipped with certain connectivity settings. Please visit the “How do you know if you’re connected” section in our Corporate Privacy Statement.

 

Certain Connected Services require connection between your account and the vehicle’s FordPass Connect modem using the FordPass app.

 

To turn off sending Connected Vehicle Information to Ford through an embedded modem or another connectivity device, please consult your vehicle Owner Manual for the procedure to disable. Uninstalling FordPass will not turn off sending data to Ford. You may also be able to adjust the level of connectivity in your vehicle, including performing a Master Reset in your vehicle. Please contact the Ford of Canada Relationship Centre if you require any assistance.

 

Please don’t forget to do a Master Reset if you sell your vehicle or buy a used vehicle to reset the vehicle. If you have a vehicle equipped with a Connectivity Device, please don’t forget to do a User Reset if you sell your vehicle. If you forgot to perform a Master Reset and no longer have possession of the vehicle, please remove the vehicle from your Account by removing it from the App’s Vehicle section. Removing the vehicle from the Account must be done for all associated accounts in order to remove the remote access, and to stop access and transmission of the FordPass-related vehicle data. Please contact the Ford of Canada Relationship Centre if you require any assistance.

 

Precise location information is collected from your mobile device and/or vehicle in connection with location-based functions of FordPass. This information includes Global Positioning System (GPS) data and location derived from IP address. This information can be used to determine your device or vehicle’s current location, travel direction, and speed.

The FordPass app is required for FordPass Connected Services. In-vehicle and FordPass app screens and Connected Service product names vary by vehicle, and data sharing requirements vary by Connected Service type.

4. Dealer Services

 

Various features of FordPass (including Find and Vehicle Details) allow you to locate dealers, select your preferred dealer, get directions to your dealer, and contact your dealer to schedule services. By using the locator services, you will be subject to the terms provided by the service that you use.

 

All service appointments and vehicle services are the responsibility of you and your dealer. Dealers are separate legal entities, independent from us, and we are not responsible or liable for dealers’ activities, including any services you receive from your dealer or the content of dealer websites.

 

You may also be able to view new dealer inventory at your preferred dealer. The inventory listed on FordPass may not be current with the inventory available at your dealer. This inventory is determined by the dealer and Ford is not responsible or liable for any inaccuracies. Contact your dealer for the price and availability of any vehicle and any applicable terms and conditions that may apply.

 

 

5. Vehicle

 

The Vehicle feature may allow you to access certain information related to your vehicle via FordPass. In order to register your car with the Vehicle feature, you will need to input your VIN number. You must be an authorized user of a vehicle in order to link your FordPass account to the VIN of a vehicle you do not own or lease which may have to be approved by a primary account holder and authenticated in the vehicle. You may remove your VIN from FordPass at any time; however, removal of the VIN may affect the availability of certain FordPass features. To turn off data transmission to Ford through an embedded modem, perform a master reset in the SYNC settings in your vehicle. See your vehicle Owner Manual for more information.

 

If equipped, the vehicle status feature may allow you to view certain notifications on FordPass, regarding Vehicle Health Alerts. These alerts may include electric battery health, fuel level, fuel consumption, odometer, tire pressure, VIN number, and other vehicle diagnostic information. These Vehicle notifications should not be used or relied upon in place of normal vehicle maintenance. If at any time you believe there may be an issue or problem with your vehicle, consult with a professional for diagnosis and required maintenance.

 

If your vehicle has Wi-Fi hotspot functionality and you have activated a data plan, you can view information about your data plan through FordPass. Data usage may not reflect actual or current usage, please contact the vehicle network carrier. You must sign up for wireless service directly with the vehicle network carrier who is solely responsible for the wireless service, subject to separate terms and conditions you agree to when you activate your service, and for the information available through FordPass. Always pay careful attention to the road and do not drive distracted. Wi-Fi hotspot intended for passenger use only.

 

The Vehicle feature may display when your next service or maintenance is due. This information is an estimate only based on your vehicle’s approximate odometer reading. Other factors, such as time and driving conditions, may affect the service and maintenance intervals required. Consult your Owner Manual and your vehicle’s warranty for full details of required maintenance and warranty coverage. You are responsible for properly maintaining your vehicle.

 

The Vehicle feature also may allow for you to view how-to videos about your vehicle. In order to view these videos, FordPass will link to the Ford website https://www.ford.ca/sync3-videos/. This website will have Ford terms and conditions. Please review the terms and conditions prior to viewing any how-to videos. Your use of the how-to videos is at your own risk and neither Ford nor Ford Motor Company is liable for any damage to your vehicle or injuries to you or any third party based on your use of the videos. Please use these videos with caution and never attempt to perform vehicle maintenance that may require a professional.

 

 

6. Parking

 

FordPass parking informs you of parking locations. We may use third parties to provide these services. We do not, however, sell parking, provide a parking service, operate a parking lot, or otherwise accept custody of motor vehicles. These services are provided by others, such as parking facility owners or operators, and they are in no way our agent or acting on our behalf.

 

You will be required to set up accounts with third party operators to reserve and pay for parking. Parking rates are set directly by the parking owner or operator, not us. Reserved rates may differ from drive-up rates (if available) and may be subject to change. You are responsible for paying the actual rates for all parking, including any costs for parking in excess of your booked time.

 

You are responsible for selecting your parking and compliance with all signs, laws, and regulations relating to parking. You are also responsible for compliance with the agreement with the owner or operator of the parking facility, as posted at its location or otherwise provided to you by it (which agreement will, in all cases, govern the parking arrangement). Allocation of parking spaces is not within our control and we do not guarantee the availability of a specific parking spot. Please use your best judgment when deciding on a parking facility or location and do not park at a facility or location that you do not feel is safe and secure.

 

If you choose to use the FordPass timer feature to set the time of your parking, the use is at your own risk. We are not responsible for any tickets, fines, or other additional costs that you incur as a result of your parking or use of the timer.

 

We do not represent or warrant the quality, suitability, safety, or security of any parking, and we disclaim all liability arising from any lack of quality, suitability, safety, or security of any parking or otherwise related to your use of parking and parking facilities and locations (including, without limitation, liability regarding the safety or security of persons or property in parking facilities and locations, and the consequences of not being able to park or delays associated with parking).

 

 

7. Guides

 

FordPass may offer certain guides and roadside assistance, subject to your vehicle’s warranty. This may not be available for all makes and models of vehicles. If your warranty is expired, you may not be able to access this feature. If you wish to obtain extended warranty coverage at any time, please contact us as set out in the Contact Us section below.  If you no longer have roadside assistance or require roadside assistance coverage on a non-Ford vehicle, you may purchase by contacting Roadside Assistance.

 

Assistance may be provided by live chat or through email with remote Ford Guides. If you provide contact information for a Guide to contact you via phone, email or text, you are expressly consenting to a Ford Guide to contact you. Phone calls may be recorded for quality assurance purposes, and by continuing to speak with the Ford Guide you consent to having the call recorded for such purposes.

 

Any maps or guides available through FordPass may not accurately reflect current road conditions as these are subject to change. We will not be liable for any damage to you, your passengers, third parties or your or other vehicles due to your use of FordPass or due to faulty or poor road conditions. Please take caution when driving to ensure that road conditions are safe. Without limiting any disclaimers set forth in the vehicle warranty terms, we do not make any, and hereby expressly disclaim any representation or warranty regarding the accuracy, completeness or quality of any information or advice given in connection with this FordPass feature.

 

Ford Guides cannot address warranty or customer service questions or concerns about products sold by Ford. If you have a question about a Ford product or have a concern with a vehicle, please contact your authorized Ford dealer or Ford's Customer Relationship Center as listed in the Contact Us section below.

FordPass Rewards Points will typically be deposited into your FordPass Rewards Account within 10 days of the qualifying activity. Notwithstanding the foregoing, certain activities may require additional time to validate as qualifying transactions. Please allow additional time for FordPass Rewards Points to be deposited into your FordPass Rewards Account.

 

FordPass Rewards Points are not transferrable, and may not be sold, transferred or assigned to others.

 

c. REDEEMING FORDPASS REWARDS POINTS

 

FordPass Rewards Points can be used at any participating Ford Dealer towards the purchase of a new Ford or Lincoln vehicle, or  for discounts on eligible service with Ford, Motorcraft or Omnicraft  parts or for any other rewards as determined by Ford from time to time (collectively, “Rewards”). See your Dealer for more information.

 

FordPass Rewards Points will be subtracted from your FordPass Rewards Account balance immediately upon completion of the redemption transaction. Rewards may be subject to additional terms and conditions, such as expiration dates or restrictions on use. Once redeemed, FordPass Rewards Points cannot be refunded or returned to you.

 

d. POINTS VALUE

 

FordPass Rewards Points do not have any cash value. FordPass Rewards Points are only a measurement of a member’s qualifying activities in FordPass Rewards and are not considered the property of the participant. FordPass Rewards Points are not redeemable for cash, check, or any other form of credit. The list of Rewards, the number of FordPass Rewards Points required for a Reward, and the structure of FordPass Rewards may be modified by Ford at any time.

 

e. POINTS BALANCES

 

Members can view their current FordPass Rewards Points balance and previous activity on their FordPass Rewards Account home screen.

 

Any errors or omissions on transactions posted to your FordPass Rewards Points balance must be reported within 60 days from the date of the eligible activity by contacting the FordPass Rewards Centre as noted in the Contact Us section below (see Section 21). Failure to supply necessary documentation may result in an inability to award FordPass Rewards Points. For verification, you should retain all receipts and documentation until your Points are credited to your FordPass Rewards Account.

 

If you do not receive a Point accrual, Reward, or other benefit, Ford’s liability will be limited to the equivalent of that FordPass Rewards Point accrual, Reward, or benefit.

 

All FordPass Rewards Points are subject to verification at any time for any reason. Ford has the right to correct any FordPass Rewards Points posted in error, or as the result of any fraudulent activity, or any activity not in keeping with the letter and/or spirit of these FordPass Rewards Terms, as interpreted by Ford in its sole and absolute discretion.

 

f. PROMOTIONAL OFFERS

 

At any time, Ford may issue special promotions that alter the rate at which FordPass Rewards Points are earned, such as multipliers, bonus Points, or other promotional offers on certain products, services, days, or portions of any day. We may also offer contests or sweepstakes in association with FordPass Rewards. Ford may make such promotional offers to all FordPass Rewards participants, or any subset of them, in its sole and absolute discretion. These FordPass Rewards Terms shall apply to such offers, along with any additional terms and conditions, rules and eligibility criteria that accompany the offer, unless you are notified otherwise.

 

g. FORDPASS REWARDS MEMBERSHIP CANCELLATION

 

You may cancel your FordPass Rewards membership at any time by contacting the Rewards Centre at 1-833-502-1689. Any accrued FordPass Rewards Points will immediately be forfeited upon cancellation. 

 

h. POINT EXPIRATION AND ACCOUNT TERMINATION

 

For members residing outside Quebec:

 

Your FordPass Rewards Points balance expires and is forfeited when you have not earned FordPass Rewards Points or redeemed FordPass Rewards Points or FordPass Rewards for 365 consecutive calendar days.

 

If under a promotional offer, we provide you with a gratuitous offer of FordPass Rewards Points, unrelated to any purchase of goods or services by you (“Gratuitous Points”), such Gratuitous Points may expire on any timeline no later than 30 days we disclose to you in association with those Gratuitous Points.

 

Participation in FordPass Rewards is a privilege granted to members, and as such can be suspended, revoked, or terminated at any time by Ford for any reason. If your FordPass Rewards membership is terminated, all FordPass Rewards Points associated with your FordPass Rewards membership and membership benefits will be forfeited immediately upon termination. If your FordPass Rewards membership is terminated due to fraudulent activity or noncompliance with these FordPass Rewards Terms, you cannot participate in or rejoin FordPass Rewards. Notwithstanding the foregoing, your FordPass account will remain open and active unless discontinued pursuant to Section 1(a).

 

For members residing in Quebec:

 

Your FordPass Rewards Points balance expires and is forfeited when you have not earned FordPass Rewards Points or redeemed FordPass Rewards Points for 365 consecutive calendar days. If your FordPass Rewards Points balance is set to expire, we will send you a notice before 30 and 60 days before this expiry is set to occur. This notice will be sent to the email address we have on file for your account and will state that your inactivity will result in the expiry of your FordPass Rewards Points balance, and the date on which this expiry is set to occur.

 

If your FordPass Rewards membership is terminated due to fraudulent activity or noncompliance with these FordPass Rewards Terms, you cannot participate in or rejoin FordPass Rewards.

i. PROGRAM CHANGES AND PROGRAM TERMINATION

 

For members residing outside Quebec:

 

Ford reserves the right to change or terminate FordPass Rewards, the FordPass Rewards Terms, or any part thereof, at any time without notice and without further obligations to FordPass Rewards members, including, but not limited to modifications which: (a) govern FordPass Rewards Points earned on and after the date of change; or (b) change the value of Rewards. If the FordPass Rewards program is terminated, in our discretion, all FordPass Rewards Points associated with your FordPass Rewards membership and membership benefits will be forfeited immediately upon termination. No FordPass Rewards Points will be earned or redeemed after the effective date of termination. Any and all changes and/or amendments to these FordPass Rewards Terms will become binding upon all members immediately.

 

For members residing in Quebec:

 

Ford reserves the right to change or terminate FordPass Rewards, the FordPass Rewards Terms, or any part thereof, at any time. Without limiting the foregoing, we may modify:

 

a) the eligibility conditions for participation in FordPass Rewards;

b) the manner in which a member participates in FordPass Rewards;

c) the way in which and rate at which FordPass Rewards Points are earned;

d) the way in which and rate at which FordPass Rewards Points are redeemed;

e) the participating dealers;

f) the existence of the FordPass Rewards program; in that we reserve the right to terminate it.

 

In the event of an amendment to an essential element of the FordPass Rewards or these FordPass Rewards Terms, we will notify you at least 60 days (but not more than 90 days) before the amendment comes into effect. Such notice will be sent to the email address associated to your account, and will set out the new clause, or the amended clause and how it read formerly, and the date on which the amendment will come into effect. If the amendment pertains to a non-essential element of FordPass Rewards or these FordPass Rewards Terms, we will provide you with at least 30 days notice, using the email address associated to your account, and setting out the new clause only, or the amended clause and how it read formerly, and the date on which the amendment will come into effect. If the amendment entails an increase in your obligations or a reduction in our obligations, you may refuse the amendment and cancel your participation in FordPass Rewards without cost, penalty or cancellation indemnity, by sending us notice to that effect no later than 30 days after the amendment comes into force, at the address or email address indicated in the notice. You will then have 45 days to redeem any outstanding FordPass Rewards Points. Any FordPass Rewards Points that are not redeemed after 45 days will be forfeited.

 

If you do not exercise your right to rescind or cancel your participation in FordPass Rewards by sending us notice no later than 30 days after the amendment comes into force, your continued participation in FordPass Rewards after such 30-day delay has expired will constitute your consent to be bound by the amendment.

 

Notwithstanding the above, we may unilaterally amend for a temporary period of time an essential element of the FordPass Rewards (including, but not limited to, an essential element of these FordPass Rewards Terms) to a member’s advantage.

 

j. TRANSFER OF RIGHTS

 

Ford’s rights and obligations under FordPass Rewards may be assigned or transferred by Ford to any other related or unrelated entity at any time, and performances shall be the responsibility of that entity.

 

k. INTERPRETATION OF FORDPASS REWARDS TERMS

 

All interpretations of these FordPass Rewards Terms will be at Ford’s sole discretion and Ford’s decisions will be final.

 

l. OWNER ADVANTAGE REWARDS MEMBERS; SERVICE BALANCES

 

FordPass Rewards members who were previously members of the Owner Advantage Rewards program (“OAR”, “OAR Program”) have 550 consecutive calendar days from the launch date of FordPass Rewards and the termination of the OAR Program to accept the FordPass Terms and enroll in FordPass Rewards to transition OAR Service Rewards to FordPass Rewards. OAR Service Rewards will become subject to the conditions of the FordPass Rewards Program, including those relating to the expiry of Points. If an OAR member does not enroll within the specified time, then the earned OAR Service Rewards will not be converted to FordPass Rewards.

 

9. Connected Services

 

Through designated Ford mobile apps and websites, you can purchase a Connected Service plan (“Connected Service”) from Ford Smart Mobility Canada Company (“FSM Canada”). This Section contains the terms and conditions for Connected Services purchased through the FordPass website unless there are product specific terms presented at time of order. Your Connected Service will continue until (i) it is cancelled by you, (ii) it is cancelled by us (see Section (b) below), or (iii) it expires, whichever comes first. Please be aware that a Connected Service may be operated on FSM Canada’s behalf by a third party.

 

FSM Canada reserves the right to change, update, improve, correct, modify, suspend, discontinue or cancel all or part of a Connected Service, including any of its features, programs, functionalities or manners of operation at any time without any notice or obligation to you. Your use of a Connected Service after any changes are implemented will be considered acceptance of such changes. You agree to use the Connected Service for your personal use and shall not use the Connected Service for commercial, business or resale purposes. A Connected Service may not be available during maintenance breaks and other times. We will not be liable to you in the event that any part of the Connected Service provided by us is unavailable or modified in any way.

 

Connected Service is specific to the vehicle and is non-transferable. Connected Service(s) depend on compatible Bell network availability. Evolving technology/cellular networks/vehicle capability may limit functionality and prevent operation of connected features.

 

a. Order Process and Payments

 

i.        To purchase a Connected Service, you must be at least 18 year of age or older, or the age of majority in your place of legal residence, whichever is older.

ii.        Your order is an offer to purchase a Connected Service from FSM Canada or the seller listed at time of purchase. When you are placing an order, the following steps have to take place before a contract for the sale of a Connected Service (“Contract”) is made in relation to your order:

a.    Ordering: you place your order by completing the check-out process and submitting your order and payment details through your Ford Account online.

b.    Reviewing your order: Before placing your order, the check-out process will give you the opportunity to review and, if necessary, to change your selection and/or correct any errors in your order information. Please take the time to read and check your order at each step of the order process, and to fix any errors before proceeding.

c.     Accepting the terms: You may be asked to confirm that you accept any applicable terms and conditions for your order (“Contract Documents”). If you do not wish to be bound by what you read, you should not place on order.

d.    Acknowledgement of your order: Once you have submitted your order details, you will see an on-screen acknowledgement that your order has been placed. However, please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. FSM Canada’s acceptance of your order will take place as described in Section (f) below.

e.    Acceptance of your order: A confirmation of FSM Canada’s acceptance of your order will be sent to you by email (“Order Confirmation”). Please note that the Contract between you and FSM Canada will only be formed when you receive the Order Confirmation. If FSM Canada is unable to accept your order, we or FSM Canada will inform you as soon as possible.

f.      As part of the check-out process, the cost of the Connected Service will be displayed. You agree to pay the cost to FSM Canada or the selling party if otherwise stated at check-out using the Wallet. As a result, you authorize FSM Canada to charge your selected payment card for the Connected Service cost in accordance with the Contract Documents. Please refer to Section 2 for the FordPass Terms-Privacy Policy and the Wallet Terms. We will also send you a receipt for your records.

 

b.    CANCELLATION/EXPIRATION

 

Some Connected Services have a defined expiration date, at which time the Connected Service will expire unless you purchase an additional term of the Connected Service. The term, expiration, and renewal details will be set forth in your Contract Documents. If you have questions about a Connected Service, please contact the Customer Relationship Centre. Unless otherwise stated in your Contract Documents, the cost of a Connected Service is non-refundable.

 

FSM Canada may terminate any or all Connected Service(s), or suspend temporarily part or all of your access to the Connected Service(s) at any time (acting reasonably) by written notice (including by e-mail to your current registered email address) for reasons including (but not limited to) the following:

 

a)         you do not pay the Connected Service fees or costs owing by the due date;

b)         you commit a serious or persistent breach of a term;

c)         circumstances arise where (in our reasonable opinion) such action will mitigate an identified risk or prevent the Connected Service(s), FordPass or associated systems from being abused, manipulated or otherwise undermined by you or your device; or

d)         where Ford decides to no longer offer any Services through FordPass.
