You understand that Hero911 Network, LLC (“the Owner”) has established a voluntary Hero911 Network exclusive to federal, state and local law enforcement officers, active or retired, off or on duty. These officers have volunteered to be the recipients of alerts immediately informing them of an armed intrusion or active shooter emergency at a nearby school or other institution or gathering place. A Licensor with whom the Owner is affiliated (“the Licensor”) has designed a mobile application for the Hero911 Network that would permit its volunteer members to receive the alerts. The Licensor has contracted with schools and other institutional customers who wish to have the ability, using the Licensor’s proprietary mobile device applications, to alert the nearby members of the Hero911 Network in the event of an armed intrusion or active shooter emergency.
