  1. Bills are sent to you on the first business day of each month. Payment terms are Net 25 days. It is agreed that if payment is not made, service may be discontinued any time after the 25th day of the month without further notice to you.

Should this occur more than once, a deposit equal to two months charges will be required in addition to regular billing.

Accordingly, you should be aware that this express disclaimer of liability is an integral part of the contractual relationship between you and the Company. It is agreed that we shall mutually protect, indemnify, and hold each other harmless from any claim or liability that may be asserted by anyone, in the event of loss, injury, or damages to property or persons, including third parties or entities and persons seeking to be protected even if such loss, injury or damage results or is claimed to have resulted from the Company’s negligence, misconduct or omission.

Any additional charges are billed in arrears at the end of the billing period along with the basic charges for the following month. The basic charges for all services include a service rate per billing period plus any allowance inclusive of that rate as well as any overage charges per bill cycle. If the Customer does not use the minimum allowance during any billing cycle, any unused usage will not carry over for the next bill cycle.  Once the minimum usage has been reached during any one billing cycle, the Customer will be billed for any usage in excess of the usage allowance at the overage rate. We charge for the amount of time we spend working for you, which is known in our industry as work time. Minutes are calculated in 30-second increments and rounded up to the next increment. All rates are subject to review and adjustment without notice.  Billing statistical call records are purged after 90 days and any inquiries regarding invoice must be made within 90 days of such invoice.

Before advertising such a number, the Customer must obtain prior written authorization from the Company, which the Company may deny such request in its sole discretion.
