- No guarantees: this software uses an unsupported API, so I’m not really in control. I’ll do my best to make it work, but if it doesn’t, than it’s back to manual actions in Tesla’s app.
- Be reasonable: it’s a free service, even without ads, so it is costing me money to run it. Also, I could appreciate that any feedback has the the form of friendly suggestions.
- You own your data and where I need to see it, I’ll only use it to provide this service to you. If the service ever stops, all data will be deleted.

9.1 Nondisclosure. Each Party (each a “Receiving Party”) agrees that it shall use and reproduce the Confidential Information of the other Party (the “Disclosing Party”) only for purposes of exercising its rights and performing its obligations under this Agreement and only to the extent necessary for such purposes; shall restrict disclosure of such Confidential Information to the Receiving Party’s employees, consultants, or advisors who have a need to know; and shall not disclose such Confidential Information to any third party without the prior written approval of the Disclosing Party. The foregoing obligations shall be satisfied by the Receiving Party through the exercise of at least the same degree of care used to restrict disclosure and use of its own information of like importance, but not less than reasonable care. All third parties to whom the Receiving Party discloses Confidential Information must be bound in writing by obligations of confidentiality and non-use at least as protective of such information as this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, it shall not be a breach of this Agreement for the Receiving Party to disclose Confidential Information if compelled to do so under law, in a judicial or other governmental investigation or proceeding, provided that, to the extent permitted by law, the Receiving Party has given the Disclosing Party prior notice and reasonable assistance to permit the Disclosing Party a reasonable opportunity to object to and/or limit the judicial or governmental requirement to disclosure.
9.2 Exceptions. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, neither Party shall be liable for using or disclosing information that such Party can prove: (i) was in the public domain at the time it was disclosed or has entered the public domain through no fault of the Receiving Party; (ii) was known to the Receiving Party, without restriction, at the time of disclosure, as demonstrated by files in existence at the time of disclosure; (iii) is disclosed with the prior written approval of the Disclosing Party; (iv) was independently developed by the Receiving Party without any use of the Confidential Information, as demonstrated by files created at the time of such independent development; (v) becomes known to the Receiving Party, without restriction, from a source other than the Disclosing Party without breach of this Agreement by the Receiving Party and otherwise not in violation of the Disclosing Party’s rights; or (vi) is disclosed generally to third parties by the Disclosing Party without restrictions similar to those contained in this Agreement.
9.3 Remedies. The Receiving Party agrees that a breach of this Section may result in immediate and irreparable harm to the Disclosing Party that money damages alone may be inadequate to compensate. Therefore, in the event of such a breach, the Disclosing Party will be entitled to seek equitable relief, including but not limited to a temporary restraining order, temporary injunction or permanent injunction without the posting of a bond or other security.
