ARTICLE 6. General Description of Services

OLYTHE has designed a breathalyzer to measure the alcohol content in exhaled air.

The OCIGO Device is a new generation of electronic breathalyzer. By combining the accuracy of infrared spectroscopy measurement with powerful algorithms, OLYTHE offers highly reliable and accurate technology.

The detection of alcohol by infrared spectroscopy was originally developed for alcometers used by professionals and law enforcement agencies. Based on its know-how, OLYTHE has succeeded in miniaturizing this cumbersome technology in order to make it portable and accessible to all.

The results obtained are expressed by default in mg/L of exhaled air, or in another unit of measurement of alcohol content, in exhaled air or in blood, as selected by the User.

The results are communicated to the Application installed on the User’s smartphone and interpreted according to the country and driver category selected by the User.

When interpreting the results, the Application informs the User of the applicable regulations and the risk incurred in the event of driving.

The User is also informed of the time required for their alcohol level to fall to zero.

For more information about the Application and the Device, the User can consult the website at https://www.olythe.io/en, or read the information available on the Application’s download store.

The Services are subject to change without the prior consent of the User.

The User acknowledges and accepts that their use of the Application is governed by the status of the Services and the features available at the time of use.

ARTICLE 7. Liability – Limitation – Warranties

The OCIGO Device analysis results sent to the Application have a level of reliability equivalent to that of professional devices. Calculations for the time required to return to an alcohol level of zero are based on current scientific data.
