All users of PhoneSheriff are required to accept all terms on this page along with the User Legal Agreement when creating your account and upon purchase.

Legal Terms and Policies


It is company policy that our customer databases remain confidential and private. We have not, will not, and won't ever sell names to "spammers" or other parties who would like to use our databases to advertise or solicit their products or services. PhoneSheriff does not collect any information from your device other than the information required for the product's successful operation. Your private information is safe with us.


As of 12/09/2011, PhoneSheriff is now offered in a time-oriented licensing configuration. When you purchase a license for PhoneSheriff, you will not be automatically rebilled, as our previous licenses were. If you wish to continue to use the PhoneSheriff service at the interval you selected, you will need to renew your license at that time. If you wish to no longer use the PhoneSheriff service, then at the end of the time period you selected at the point of purchase, your PhoneSheriff account will automatically be disabled.


At the point where you made your PhoneSheriff purchase and selected Automatic Renewal, you hereby agree that you will be automatically billed upon the end of your license interval that you selected:

  • Annually: every twelve (12) months

If at any time, you can cancel your license plan. When this occurs, your automatic billing license plan will be terminated and your PhoneSheriff account will be disabled effective immediately.


To cancel your automatic license plan renewal, please contact Retina-X Studios by submitting a support ticket at the Retina-X Studios Helpdesk.

Please be aware that when you cancel your automatic license plan renewal, your PhoneSheriff account will be disabled at that time from further use. It is recommended once you cancel your billing license plan to remove PhoneSheriff from all devices associated with your account.


If any issues cannot be resolved in a timely manner, a refund of the purchase price will be issued if the software is proven defective. We reserve the right to refund an order and discontinue support and service if you are threatening us or we determine you are using the service for disallowed purposes.

PhoneSheriff is designed only to be used to monitor your child or employee. Retina-X Studios defines each as:

  • Child: Your own legal child that is under the legal age of 18 (as defined by US law). The child must be monitored using a compatible device that you own. Unless you are the legal guardian thereof, you cannot monitor a child if you hold one of the following relationships:

    • Brother / Sister
    • Step-Brother / Step-Sister
    • Aunt / Uncle
    • Cousin / Nephew
    • Grandfather / Grandmother
    • Great-Grandfather / Great-Grandmother
  • Employee: Your employee at a company you own OR an employee at the same company as you and you have managerial responsibilities for. The employee must be monitored using a compatible device owned by the company and issued to the employee under your company’s policies regarding company devices. The employee MUST be notified they are being monitored before monitoring can begin.

PhoneSheriff cannot be used to monitor any other individuals (such as a spouse, friend, significant other, etc.) over the legal age of 18 without that party’s expressed written notarized consent. Without this consent, it would violate the terms you agreed to at the point of purchase and be subject to immediate termination without reimbursement.

Customers are made aware by the documentation on this website that, as the owner of the device to be monitored, unrestricted physical access to the device to be monitored is required. Unrestricted physical access is defined as:

  • Customer has access to the device while the device is in their hands.
  • Customer has all passwords, pass codes, lock screen codes, etc. to unlock the device to gain access.

If a customer purchases this software and does not have unrestricted physical access to the device to be monitored, refunds will not be issued due to this situation.

As it pertains to jailbreaking an iPhone and/or iPad, Retina-X Studios is not responsible for this process or assisting in this process as it is not a Retina-X Studios product or service. The Compatibility page on this website clearly outlines that all iPhones and/or iPads must be jailbroken prior to installation and also, at the point of purchase, the customer agrees to this requirement. It is the customer’s responsibility to jailbreak their iPhone or iPad on their own prior to purchasing the software. Refunds will not be issued to any customer who is either unable or unwilling to jailbreak their iPhone and/or iPad.

Also, refunds will not be given for any incompatibility issues. Incompatibility situations would include:

  • The device to be monitored is running an operating system version that is not supported outlined on this website’s Compatibility page.
  • A customer chooses (at their own discretion) to upgrade the device they wish to monitor and the new desired device to be monitored is running an operating system version that is not supported outlined on this website’s Compatibility page.
  • The customer’s underage child / employee upgrades the operating system version on the device (irrespective to the owner’s wishes) to an operating system version that is not supported outlined on this website’s Compatibility page.

The Compatibility page in this website outlines all of the compatible operating systems and versions the program supports so that proposed customers thinking of purchasing the PhoneSheriff software will know which device models and operating system versions are compatible prior to purchase.

Refunds are not issued if your child or employee performs a complete reset of the device that will, in turn, remove all installed software from the device including this monitoring software. If your child employee performs a device reset, it is your responsibility to gain access to the device to reinstall our software in order to continue to monitor that individual’s activities. Additionally, if your child or employee either claims to have discovered this software and/or has removed the software against your wishes, a refund will not be issued. As stated previously, it is your responsibility to alert your underage child or employee using a company-issued device that you are monitoring their activities.

Any customer who claims that their purchase was made in error or submitted fraudulent information will forfeit their right to any refund and will be held liable for all charges for the transaction. Our website has built-in safeguards to prevent one-click purchasing by mistake. Also, if you feel someone has made the purchase using your information, Retina-X Studios requests you contact your bank to submit a fraudulent charge alert so that the bank can contact the appropriate parties to have it resolved.

Please be aware that once you enter a new license plan billing cycle, refunds will not be given for that new time period. If you wish not to renew, please contact us well in advance of the renewal date so that the account can be de-activated and no new charges will incur. It is the customer’s responsibility to keep information on their license plan periods.

Please be aware that all refunds result in immediate discontinuation of services and support.

All sales are final.

It is a federal and state offense in most countries to install monitoring software onto a device which you do not own or have proper authorization to install.
