Terms of Use

Effective Date: 17 April 2023

These Terms of Use set the rules for how we interact with the user and how the user can, and cannot, use the Services. These Terms of Use form a legal agreement between the user and AYES, Inc. (“us,” “we,” AYES, or the “Company”) (the “Terms of Use”). 

 

The OKO application is an artificial intelligence application that uses the back camera on a user’s mobile device to recognize pedestrian traffic light and inform the user of the” walk”, “don’t walk” and/or “countdown” signs. We use audio, vibrations and visual overlays to notify users of when a pedestrian traffic light changes. (collectively, the “Services”) (the “Application”). 

 

The Application does not rely on any adaptations to the traffic light and runs locally on the user’s smartphone. As a result, the Application can be operated in airplane mode if necessary for the reliability of the Application’s functionality. The feedback is instantaneous; this means that the user feels an extra sense of orientation because the moment a user receives feedback, the user also knows that it is the heading in the proper direction. Currently, the Application does not require the user to input any information, however, our proprietary “smart” algorithm has the capability of detecting when a traffic light is changing (the “Algorithm”). We have sourced the Application from scratch as well as all data and artificial intelligence associated therewith. We do not sell the Algorithm to third parties. Users can turn the Algorithm to the “off” position via the Application’s settings function, however, doing so will limit the Application’s functionality. 

 

We reserve the right to capture aggregated and anonymous location data to share with local municipalities for non-marketing purposes to provide insights to concerning their accessibility. We currently do not charge a fee for use of the Application but reserve the right to do so in the future.
