  • 1. SCOPE OF THESE TERMS OF USE, CONTRACTING PARTIES

  • 1.1.
    Contracting parties
    These terms of use ("Terms of Use") apply to the use of the Kia Connect app ("Kia Connect App") and/or the use of Kia Connect via the car’s head unit ("Head Unit"), which provide you with the opportunity to use certain Kia Connect services ("Services").
    The Services are provided by Kia Connect GmbH, registered under the registration number HRB 112541, Theodor-Heuss-Allee 11, 60486 Frankfurt am Main, email: info@kia-connect.eu ("Kia"; "we"; "us"; "our"), to the user of the Services ("User" or "you").
    1.2.
    Scope of these Terms of Use
    The purchase agreement for the vehicle and the agreement concerning the provision of the Services in accordance with the Terms of Use are legally separate business transactions and agreements.
    The performance of one of the agreements shall have no implications on the respective other agreement. In certain circumstances, this may result in the User fulfilling the purchase agreement on the vehicle without being able to use the Services. In the opposite case, e.g. in the case of reverse transaction ("Rückabwicklung") of the purchase agreement for the vehicle, the agreement for the provision of the Services for the vehicle concerned may be terminated according to section 10.4.
    1.3.
    The use of the Services via the Kia Connect App requires internet access or other telecommunications services (see also section 3 on prerequisites for the use of the Services). These Terms of Use do not apply to the telecommunications services required to use the Services via the Kia Connect App. These are subject to a separate agreement (including charges) with the provider of your telecommunications services.

  • 3. USE OF THE SERVICES AND PREREQUISITES

  • 3.1.
    Kia Connect-enabled vehicle
    Use of the Kia Connect Services requires that your vehicle's Head Unit is Kia Connect-enabled, i.e. technically capable of connecting to the Kia Connect back-end. This depends on the model, model year and trim of your vehicle. You can find out whether your vehicle is Kia Connect-enabled by accessing the following webpage: https://owners.kia.com/content/owners/en/uvo-availability.html
    3.2.
    Kia Connect App and Head Unit
    You may use the Services via the Kia Connect App and/or the Head Unit, depending on the Service: Services listed in section 4.1.1 ("Kia Connect App") can only be used in conjunction with the Kia Connect App; Services listed in sections 4.1.2 ("In-Car Services") and 4.1.3 ("OTA Updates") can be used via the Head Unit. Usage of the Kia Connect App requires a Kia Account and you may have to connect the Kia Connect App with one or more Kia vehicles. To use the Services via the Head Unit, you do not need to sign up and do not need a Kia Account.
    3.3.
    Internet connection
    Use of the Services requires that the vehicle and – in case of Services interacting with the Kia Connect App – also the mobile device running the Kia Connect App have unrestricted access to the internet. Furthermore, the Services can only be used if the vehicle's Head Unit is in a "connection ready"-state. This is generally the case, unless the vehicle has been switched off (ignition off) continuously for more than seven days.
    If the vehicle has been switched off continuously for more than seven days, a "hard reset" is required to return to the "connection ready"-state and to re-enable the Services. To do this yourself, it is sufficient to hold the reset button in the Head Unit for five seconds using a pen while the vehicle is switched on.
    3.4.
    Compatible mobile device
    The use of the Kia Connect App (cf. section 4.1.1) requires the use of a compatible mobile device. At the time of publication of these Terms of Use, the Kia Connect App is available for the Android (minimum version: Android 5.0) and iOS (minimum version: iOS 13) platforms. Future updates of the Kia Connect App may require newer versions of the respective platforms.
    3.5.
    Availability of compatible mobile communication networks
    The mobile communications hardware and the corresponding SIM embedded in your vehicle's Head Unit are only compatible with certain 4G/LTE frequencies. The availability of compatible 4G/LTE networks and of compatible frequencies depends on external service providers and varies between different geographical regions. In some areas, no compatible 4G/LTE frequencies are available. In this case, the Head Unit will fall back on 2G or 3G networks (where available) in order to provide the Services. In this case, service provision may be less responsive or interrupted due to the lower data bandwidth of the network. The Services cannot be used in areas where no compatible mobile communication network is available.
    Kia is not responsible for any reduced responsiveness or interruption of the Services caused by the unavailability of compatible network connections.
    3.6.
    Reachability of compatible mobile communication networks
    Even where a compatible mobile communication network is generally available, performance and availability of the Services require that the respective network can be reached by the Head Unit. This depends on the signal quality at the current location of the vehicle. Where the signal quality is too low, the Services may be degraded or interrupted. This can in particular be the case (i) in tunnels (ii) in mountainous terrain or dense forests, (iii) on roads along cliff edges, (iv) in densely built-up areas, (v) on motorways or roads in subways (vi) inside buildings.
    Kia is not responsible for any reduced responsiveness or interruption of the Services caused by insufficient signal quality.

    In-car Services
    4.1.2.1.
    Kia Connect Live Services
    Availability of the Kia Connect Live Services at your vehicle's current position is subject to the availability of respective data to Kia. Data availability and accuracy may depend on third-party providers. For example, recent traffic incidents may not (yet) be included in the data available to Kia and therefore cannot be displayed on the map in the Head Unit. Likewise, as only some of the charging station operators publish live data about the availability status of the charge points, it may be impossible to provide this information in the Head Unit.
    Kia Connect Live Services include the following:
    4.1.2.1.1.
    Live Traffic and Online Navigation: This Service provides live traffic information for calculating routes and displaying the traffic situation. Online navigation enables you to navigate to your desired destination based on a combination of real-time and historical traffic information.

    Please note that the use of the speed camera alerts may be prohibited in certain countries. You may only use the speed camera alert where such use is allowed under applicable national law.
    In particular, the use of the speed camera alert is prohibited when driving in Germany pursuant to section 23 para. 1c StVO (Straßenverkehrsordnung, German Road Traffic Act). You are obligated to deactivate the speed camera alert (and keep it deactivated) while driving in Germany.
    It is your obligation as a driver to check whether using the speed camera alert is permissible at the location where you are using the vehicle.

    4.1.2.4.
    Vehicle-related Notifications
    This Service provides you with notifications relevant to the operation and maintenance of your vehicle. Notifications will be displayed in the Notification Centre on the Head Unit. This provides you with a convenient additional channel for receiving certain reminders.
    Please note that absence of a notification in the Notification Centre does not mean that no action is required. E.g. ad-hoc maintenance for your vehicle may be necessary or TÜV/MOT inspections may be due even if there is no service reminder in the Notification Centre.
    4.1.2.4.1.
    Recall Campaign Notifications: Kia will inform you about open recall campaign(s) on your vehicle; to do so, Kia will use the Notification Centre referred to above. Recall campaign notifications may also be sent to you by other means (e.g. within the Kia Connect App, via email to your registered email address or by mailed letter).

    Mandatory Vehicle Inspections Reminders (such as TÜV in Germany or MOT in the UK): Kia will inform you about upcoming mandatory vehicle inspections.
    For example, in the UK the reminder will be about the "Ministry of Transport" test (commonly referred to as "MOT").
    Use of this service requires that you provide Kia with the correct date of the last mandatory vehicle inspection and the date the vehicle was first registered. Kia may not be held liable for the accuracy and timeliness of a reminder. It is your obligation to adhere to the mandatory inspection intervals in accordance with applicable law.
    4.1.2.5.
    Like button for USB music and radio: The like button for USB music and radio allows you to select and create a playlist with your favourite songs. You can like or unlike songs via the like button integrated in the music function of the infotainment system.

    OTA Updates
    4.1.3.1.
    General Information on OTA Updates
    This section concerns updates to your vehicle's infotainment system and map data which are provided "over the air" (OTA), i.e. via the vehicle's built-in mobile communications hardware.
    This section does not apply to updates installed via local connection or to updates provided by your Kia service partner.
    4.1.3.2.
    Maps and Infotainment OTA Update
    4.1.3.2.1.
    Overview of Maps and Infotainment OTA Update
    “Maps and Infotainment OTA Update” enables:
    ● updates of the maps in the vehicle’s navigation system (“Maps Update”); and/or
    ● updates of infotainment software or enhancements of Head Unit software (“Infotainment Update”)
    from our servers to the embedded telematics system using the “over-the-air” method.
    Further information on the update process and details of the content of each Maps Update and Infotainment Update will be provided via your Head Unit.
    4.1.3.2.2.
    Prerequisites for the OTA Updates
    1. Maps and Infotainment OTA Update-enabling software: In order to be able to receive OTA Updates, your Kia vehicle needs to have installed the software enabling the Maps and Infotainment OTA Update functionality. Depending on your vehicle model, construction date and trim line, the OTA Update functionality may not be included in the software version installed in your vehicle. In this case, it may be necessary to install an OTA-enabling software version via local connection. However, Kia does not warrant that an OTA-enabling software version will be available for your vehicle. In case of questions, please contact us using the contact details provided in section 2).
    2. Availability: Installation of an update via OTA requires that Kia has made a Maps Update and/or Infotainment Update available for OTA download and installation that fits for your vehicle. Your Head Unit will regularly check whether a new Maps Update and/or Infotainment Update are available. OTA Updates may be released in waves, so not all vehicles will receive the update at the same time, even where model and trim are identical.
    3. Conditions for free-of-charge Infotainment OTA Updates: If you are the first owner of a new Kia vehicle with the model year 2022 which is compatible with the “Maps and Infotainment OTA Update” and was sold from May 2021 onwards, you will be entitled to two consecutive Maps and Infotainment OTA Updates free of charge (“Free-of-Charge Infotainment OTA Updates”).
    Once you have used the Free-of-Charge Infotainment OTA Updates, further Maps Updates and/or Infotainment Updates will be made available in line with legal requirements. However, Kia does not make any warranty or representation with regard to the number of updates that will be available or the point in time when an update will be made available. Such further updates (if any) will only be available (i) for manual download from https://update.kia.com/EU/E1/Main or (ii) at the dealership. For the avoidance of doubt, these Maps Updates and/or Infotainment Updates from the web page and at the dealership are not offered to you via the “over-the-air” method.
    Even where the update file itself is made available free of charge, your dealership may charge for the labour involved in applying the update; in case of download from the website, you will have to bear the cost of your communication provider for downloading the update file.
    4.1.3.2.3.
    Update Procedure
    The Maps and Infotainment OTA Update process is carried out in the following steps:
    ● Download and installation: Any available Maps Update and/or Infotainment Update will be automatically downloaded and installed to your Head Unit if you have (i) confirmed the respective download and installation of the Maps Update and/or Infotainment Update in your Head Unit or (ii) activated the automatic download and installation of Maps Updates and/or Infotainment Updates. You can still use your infotainment system during the download and installation.
    ● Finalisation: Before finalising the Maps Update and/or Infotainment Update, you will be asked how you want to proceed via the Head Unit. You can choose between two options: (i) finalise now or (ii) later. If you select “Finalise now”, the system will finalise the update. You cannot use the Head Unit during the finalisation of the Maps Update and/or Infotainment Update as the screen will turn off. If you select “Later”, the pop-up for finalisation will be displayed the next time the ignition is turned on.
    ● Automatic finalisation: If you activate “Automatic finalisation”, the Maps Update and/or Infotainment Update will start automatically after 30 seconds and future Maps Updates and Infotainment Updates will be finalised automatically without any additional notification to you or action necessary by you.
    ● Details: If you select “Details”, you will receive more information about the Maps Update or Infotainment Update.
    4.2.
    Information on processing of location data for Service provision
    The following Services require the collection and processing of location data (GPS data): Home menu map and search bar, Kia Connect Live Services, Online Voice Recognition, Personal Calendar/Navigation Synchronisation, Notification Centre, Recall Campaigns Notifications and Service Reminders, Map and Infotainment OTA Updates, Remote Climate Control (electric vehicles only), Remote Charging, Remote Door Control, Send POI to Car, Find my Car, My Trips, Vehicle Status, Vehicle Report, Vehicle Diagnostic, Vehicle Alert and Burglar Alarm.

  • 7. SERVICE FEE

    Free service period
    Unless otherwise stated in these Terms of Use in relation to the respective Services, the Services are provided free of charge to the users of a specific vehicle (as identified by its respective VIN) for a period of 7 years. This 7-year period commences on the day the warranty period of the vehicle starts.
    If the vehicle is sold and registered to a new owner during the free service period, the new owner may choose to use the Services free of charge during the remainder of the free service period by activating the Services in their own name. The free service period remains unaffected by any subsequent sale and registration after the initial sale, i.e. the free service period is neither interrupted nor extended by a subsequent sale and/or registration of the vehicle.
    7.2.
    Additional services
    We reserve the right to propose additional services in the future subject to separate terms of use. Such additional services may be subject to fees.

    8.2.
    The provision and use of the Services may be subject to restrictions beyond the scope of our control with regard to the current state of the art. In particular, this relates to the availability of the data connections provided by carriers. In individual cases, the non-availability of the network can lead to the Services not being available as the necessary data transfer cannot occur.
    In addition, short-term capacity bottlenecks can arise from peak loads on the Services, wireless and fixed networks and on the internet.
    8.3.
    Disruptions can also arise due to force majeure, including pandemic and epidemic diseases, strikes, lockouts and official orders, and on account of technical and other measures (e.g. repairs, maintenance, software updates and extensions) necessary on our systems or those of downstream or upstream providers, content providers and network operators, which are necessary for the proper or improved performance of the Services.
    8.4.
    Where access to the Services is deactivated, restricted or disrupted as described in this Section 7, to the extent possible we will contact you in advance to inform you of this and give a reason for the deactivation, restriction or disruption.

    Furthermore, in the event of the reversal of the purchase agreement for a vehicle, the reacquisition or other withdrawal of the vehicle by the relevant dealer, the termination of a leasing agreement, the sale of the vehicle to a third party, theft or total damage beyond repair, each Party is entitled to the termination of the Services with regard to the vehicle concerned.

  • 11.1.
    Changes to the Services
    Kia reserves the right to make reasonable changes to the Services.
