These Terms of Service constitute the agreement ("Agreement") between EasyVoipCall Corp. ("we," "us" or "EasyVoipCall") and the user ("you," "user" or "Customer") of EasyVoipCall's enhanced Residential communications services or enhanced Small Business communications services and any related products or services ("Service"). This Agreement governs both the Service and any devices, such as an IP phone, Multimedia Terminal Adapter, Analog Telephone Adapter or any other IP connection device, ("Device" or "Equipment") used in conjunction with the Service. By activating the Service, you acknowledge that you have read and understood, and you agree, to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, and you represent that you are of legal age to enter this Agreement and become bound by its terms. If you have purchased Equipment from any EasyVoipCall retail dealer , you will be deemed a "Retail Customer" and will be governed by certain Retail Customer terms and conditions as set forth herein.
Service is offered on a monthly basis for a term which begins on the date that EasyVoipCall activates your Service and ends on the day before the same date in the following month. Subsequent terms of this Agreement automatically renew on a monthly basis without further action by you unless you give EasyVoipCall written notice of non-renewal at least ten (10) days before the end of the monthly term in which the notice is given. You are purchasing the Service for full monthly terms, meaning that if you attempt to terminate Service prior to the end of a monthly term, you will be responsible for the full month's charges to the end of the then-current term, including without limitation unbilled charges, plus a disconnect fee, all of which immediately become due and payable. Expiration of the term or termination of Service does not excuse the Customer from paying all unpaid, accrued charges due in relation to the Agreement.

This also means that you are not to resell or transfer the Service or the Device to any other person for any purpose, or make any charge for the use of the Service, without express written permission from EasyVoipCall in advance. You agree that your use of the Service and/or Device, or the use of the Service and/or Device provided to you by any other person for any commercial or governmental purpose will obligate you to pay EasyVoipCall's higher rates for commercial service on account of all periods, including past periods, in which you use, or used, the Service for commercial or governmental purposes.

1.2.3 Business Plus Use of Service - Prohibition on Resale
If you have subscribed to EasyVoipCall's Business Plus services, the Service is provided to you as a small business user. This means that you are not to resell or transfer the Service or Device to any other person for any purpose, without express written permission from EasyVoipCall in advance. Customer is responsible for supplying the standard SIP based Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) ("device") for use with the Service. Business Plus customers are solely responsible for providing, operating and supporting the device they use in conjunction with EasyVoipCall's Service. EasyVoipCall reserves the right to immediately terminate or modify the Service, if EasyVoipCall determines, in its sole discretion, that Customer's Service is being used for any of the aforementioned activities. Sections 1.8, 4.6, 4.7.1 and 5.5 of this agreement do not apply to Business Plus customers.
1.3 Lawful Use of Service and Device
1.3.1 Prohibited Uses
You agree to use the Service and Device only for lawful purposes. This means that you agree not to use them for transmitting or receiving any communication or material of any kind when in EasyVoipCall's sole judgment the transmission, receipt or possession of such communication or material (i) would constitute a criminal offense, give rise to a civil liability, or otherwise violate any applicable local, state, provincial, national or international law or (ii) encourages conduct that would constitute a criminal offense, give rise to a civil liability, or otherwise violate any applicable local, state, provincial, national or international law. EasyVoipCall reserves the right to terminate your Service immediately and without advance notice if EasyVoipCall, in its sole discretion, believes that you have violated the above restrictions, leaving you responsible for the full month's charges to the end of the current term, including without limitation unbilled charges, plus a disconnect fee, all of which immediately become due and payable and may at EasyVoipCall's discretion be immediately charged to your credit card. You are liable for any and all use of the Service and/or Device by yourself and by any person making use of the Service or Device provided to you and agree to indemnify and hold harmless EasyVoipCall against any and all liability for any such use. If EasyVoipCall, in its sole discretion believes that you have violated the above restrictions, EasyVoipCall may forward the objectionable material, as well as your communications with EasyVoipCall and your personally identifiable information to the appropriate authorities for investigation and prosecution and you hereby consent to such forwarding.
1.3.2 Use of Service and Device by Customers Outside the United States and Canada
While we encourage use of the Service within the United States and Canada to other countries, EasyVoipCall does not presently offer or support the Service to customers located in other countries. If you remove the Device to a country other than the United States or Canada and use the Service from there, you do so at your own sole risk, including the risk that such activity violates local laws in the country where you do so. You are liable for any and all such use of the Service and/or Device by yourself or any person making use of the Service or Device provided to you and agree to indemnify and hold harmless EasyVoipCall against any and all liability for any such use. Should the removal from the United States or Canada of the Device violate any export control law or regulation, you will be solely liable for such violation and agree to indemnify and hold harmless EasyVoipCall against any and all liability for such violation. EasyVoipCall reserves the right to terminate your Service immediately and without advance notice if it determines that you are using it outside the United States or Canada.
1.4 Loss of Service Due to Power Failure or Internet Service Outage or Termination or Suspension or Termination by EasyVoipCall
You acknowledge and understand that the Service does not function in the event of power failure. You also acknowledge and understand that the Service requires a fully functional broadband connection to the Internet (which is not provided by EasyVoipCall) and that, accordingly, in the event of an outage of, or termination of service with or by, your Internet service provider ("ISP") and/or broadband provider, the Service will not function, but that you will continue to be billed for the Service unless and until you or EasyVoipCall terminate the Service in accordance with this Agreement. Should there be an interruption in the power supply or ISP outage, the Service will not function until power is restored or the ISP outage is cured. A power failure or disruption may require the Customer to reset or reconfigure equipment prior to using the Service. Power disruptions or failures or ISP outages will also prevent dialing to emergency service numbers including the 911 calling feature. Should EasyVoipCall suspend or terminate your Service, the Service will not function until such time as EasyVoipCall restores your Service (which may require payment of all invoices and reconnection fees owed by you or cure of any breach by you of this Agreement).
1.5 Copyright / Trademark / Unauthorized Usage of Device, Firmware or Software
The Service and Device and any firmware or software used to provide the Service or provided to you in conjunction with providing the Service, or embedded in the Device, and all Services, information, documents and materials on EasyVoipCall's website(s) are protected by trademark, copyright or other intellectual property laws and international treaty provisions. All websites, corporate names, service marks, trademarks, trade names, logos and domain names (collectively "marks") of EasyVoipCall are and shall remain the exclusive property of EasyVoipCall and nothing in this Agreement shall grant you the right or license to use any of such marks. You acknowledge that you are not given any license to use the firmware or software used to provide the Service or provided to you in conjunction with providing the Service, or embedded in the Device, other than a nontransferable, revocable license to use such firmware or software in object code form (without making any modification thereto) strictly in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. You expressly agree that the Device is exclusively for use in connection with the Service and that EasyVoipCall will not provide any passwords, codes or other information or assistance that would enable you to use the Device for any other purpose. If you decide to use the Service through an interface device not provided by EasyVoipCall, which EasyVoipCall reserves the right to prohibit in particular cases or generally, you warrant and represent that you possess all required rights, including software and/or firmware licenses, to use that interface device with the Service and you will indemnify and hold harmless EasyVoipCall against any and all liability arising out of your use of such interface device with the Service. You shall not reverse compile, disassemble or reverse engineer or otherwise attempt to derive the source code from the binary code of the firmware or software.
1.6 Tampering with the Device or Service
You agree not to change the electronic serial number or equipment identifier of the Device, or to perform a factory reset of the Device, without express permission from EasyVoipCall in each instance which EasyVoipCall may deny in its sole discretion. EasyVoipCall reserves the right to terminate your Service should you tamper with the Device, leaving you responsible for the full month's charges to the end of the current term, including without limitation unbilled charges, plus a disconnect fee, all of which immediately become due and payable. You agree not to hack or disrupt the Service or to make any use of the Service that is inconsistent with its intended purpose or to attempt to do so.

When you write, you must provide your account number and a detailed description of the circumstances of the Device theft or fraudulent use of Service. Failure to do so in a timely manner may result in the termination of your Service and additional charges to you. Until such time as EasyVoipCall receives notice of the theft or fraudulent use, you will be liable for all use of the Service using a Device stolen from you and any and all stolen Service or fraudulent use of the Service.
1.8 Return of Device
The Device may be returned to EasyVoipCall within fourteen (14) days of the termination of Service to receive a credit for the $49.99 disconnect fee (refer to Section 4.6 of this document regarding termination fees), provided: (i) you have retained, and return along with the Device, proof of purchase and original packaging; (ii) contents are undamaged and in original condition, reasonable wear and tear excluded; (iii) all parts, accessories, documentation and packaging materials are returned; and (iv) equipment is returned with a valid return authorization number obtained from EasyVoipCall's customer care department. You are responsible for the cost and risk of return shipping of equipment. If you receive cartons and/or Devices that are visibly damaged, you must note the damage on the carrier's freight bill or receipt and keep a copy. In such event, you must keep the original carton, all packing materials and parts intact in the same condition in which they were received from the carrier and contact EasyVoipCall's customer care department immediately. To obtain a return authorization number, you must contact billing@EasyVoipCall.com. Does not apply to EasyVoipCall Business Plus customers.
1.9 Number Transfer on Service Termination
Upon termination of the Service, EasyVoipCall may, at its sole discretion, subject to applicable law, release a telephone number that was ported in from a previous service provider to EasyVoipCall by you and used in connection with your Service provisioned by EasyVoipCall to your new service provider, if such new service provider is able to accept such number, and provided that (i) your account has been terminated; (ii) your EasyVoipCall account is completely current including payment for all charges and disconnect fees; and (iii) you request the transfer upon terminating your account.
1.10 Service Distinctions
You acknowledge and understand that the Service is not a telephone service. Important distinctions (some, but not necessarily all, of which are described in this Agreement) exist between telephone service and the enhanced Service offering provided by EasyVoipCall. The Service is subject to different regulatory treatment than telephone service. This treatment may limit or otherwise affect your rights of redress before federal, state or other telecommunications regulatory agencies.
1.11 Ownership and Risk of Loss
You shall be deemed the owner of the Device, and bear all risk of loss of, theft of, casualty to or damage to the Device, from the time it is shipped to you until the time (if any) when it is returned by you pursuant to Section 1.8 and has been received by EasyVoipCall.
1.12 No 0+ Calling; May Not Support x11 Calling
EasyVoipCall's Service does not support 0+ calling (including without limitation collect, third party billing or calling card calling). EasyVoipCall's Service may not support 311, 511 and/or other x11 services in one or more (or all) service areas.
1.13 Change of Number
You have no property right in any phone number assigned to or used by you. EasyVoipCall shall be entitled to change any such number where EasyVoipCall determines, in its sole discretion, that such a change is necessary. EasyVoipCall shall give you reasonable advance written notice of such a change, except in cases of emergency, where oral notice shall be given.
2. EMERGENCY SERVICES- 911 DIALING
2.1 Implementation of 911 dialing in Canada
EasyVoipCall's 911 type dialing service described in this Section 2 will be made available to particular regions in Canada in stages over a period of time. 911 dialing as described may therefore not be available in the Customer's location. As indicated below, you will not be able to dial 911 unless and until you have received a confirming email.
2.2 Non-Availability of Traditional 911 or E911 Dialing Service
The 911 type dialing service offered by EasyVoipCall differs in a number of important ways (some, but not necessarily all, of which are described in this Agreement) from 911 or E911 emergency services as provided by traditional local exchange carriers. By activating the Service, you acknowledge that you have read and understood, and you agree, to the terms and conditions of this Section 2 regarding EasyVoipCall's 911 service.
2.3 Other Users
You agree to inform any household residents, guests and other third persons who may be present at the physical location where you use the Service, of the non-availability of traditional 911 or E911 dialing from your EasyVoipCall Service and Device(s), and, if you activate EasyVoipCall 911-type dialing service, of the important differences and limitations of EasyVoipCall 911 dialing service described in this Agreement as compared with traditional 911 or E911 dialing.
2.4 EasyVoipCall Devices
EasyVoipCall offers a limited 911-type service available only on EasyVoipCall Devices as described herein. EasyVoipCall 911 dialing cannot be used in conjunction with a EasyVoipCall Soft Phone application.
2.5 Routing of 911 Calls
When you dial 911, your call is routed from the EasyVoipCall network to the Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) or local emergency service personnel designated for the address that you listed at the time of activation. The call may be routed to the general telephone number for the PSAP or local emergency service provider (which may not be answered outside business hours), rather than traditional 911 dispatcher(s). There may be a greater possibility that the general telephone number for the local emergency service provider will produce a busy signal or will take longer to answer, as compared to traditional 911 calls. EasyVoipCall relies on third parties for the forwarding of information underlying such routing, and accordingly EasyVoipCall and its third party provider(s) disclaim any and all liability or responsibility in the event such information or routing is incorrect.
2.6 Description of 911-Type Dialing Capabilities - Activation Required
You must successfully activate the 911 dialing feature by following the instructions from the "Dial 911" link on your EasyVoipCall Internet interface (dashboard). Until you have received a confirming email that 911 dialing has been successfully activated, you cannot dial 911 from this line.
2.7 Failure to Designate the Correct Physical Address When Activating 911 Dialing
Failure to provide the current and correct physical address and location of your EasyVoipCall equipment by following the instructions from the "Dial 911" link on your dashboard will result in any 911 communication you may make being routed to the incorrect local emergency service provider. This must be the actual physical street address where you are located, not a post office box, mail drop or similar address.
2.8 Requires Re-Activation if You Change Your Number, Add or Port New Numbers, or Move or Change Location
911 dialing does not function properly if you change your phone number, or (for such newly added or ported numbers) if you add or port new numbers to your account, or if you move or otherwise change the physical location of your EasyVoipCall Device to a different street address, unless and until you have successfully activated the 911 dialing feature for your changed, newly added or newly ported number or changed or new location by following the instructions from the "Dial 911" link on your dashboard, and until such activation has been confirmed to you through a confirming email. Failure to follow these procedures will lead to an inability to make 911 calls, or any 911 calls you may make being routed to the incorrect local emergency service provider.
2.9 Service Outages
911 dialing will not function in the following circumstances:
2.9.1 Power Failure or Disruption
Should there be a power failure or disruption, ALL Service and 911 dialing will stop operating until power is restored, and the Customer may need to reset or reconfigure equipment prior to using the Service or 911 dialing.
2.9.2 Broadband Service / ISP Outage or Termination / Suspension or Termination by EasyVoipCall
Service outages or suspension or termination of service by your broadband provider and/or ISP or by EasyVoipCall will prevent ALL Service including 911 dialing.
2.9.3 Service Outage Due to Suspension of Your Account
Service outages due to suspension of your account as a result of billing issues will prevent ALL Service, including 911dialing.
2.9.4 Other Service Outages
Any other service outage for ANY reason will prevent ALL Service, including 911 dialing. Such outages may occur for a variety of reasons, including, but not limited to those reasons described elsewhere in this Agreement.
2.10 Possibility of Network Congestion and/or Reduced Speed for Routing
Due to the technical constraints on the manner in which it is possible to provide the 911 dialing feature for EasyVoipCall Service at this time, there is a greater possibility of network congestion and/or reduced speed in the routing of a 911 communication made using your EasyVoipCall equipment as compared to traditional 911 dialing over traditional public telephone networks. Therefore, 911 calls may take longer to reach PSAPs or local emergency service providers than in the case of traditional 911 calls.
2.11 Automated Number Identification
EasyVoipCall's system is configured in most instances to send automated number identification information; however, one or more telephone companies other than EasyVoipCall route the traffic to the PSAP, the PSAP itself must be able to receive the information and pass it along properly, and PSAPs are not yet always technically capable of doing so. Therefore at this time it may or may not be possible for the PSAP and the local emergency personnel to identify your phone number when you dial 911, in order to call you back if the call is unable to be completed, is dropped or disconnected, if you are unable to speak to tell them your phone number and/or if the Service stops operating for any reason, including without limitation those listed elsewhere in this Agreement.
2.12 Automated Location Identification
At this time it is not possible to transmit identification of the address that you have listed to the PSAP and local emergency personnel for your area when you dial 911. You will therefore need to state the nature of your emergency promptly and clearly, including your location, as PSAP and emergency personnel will NOT have this information. PSAP and emergency personnel will not be able to find your location if the call is unable to be completed, is dropped or disconnected, if you are unable to speak to tell them your location and/or if the Service stops operating for any reason, including without limitation those listed elsewhere in this Agreement.
2.13 Alternative 911 Arrangements
You acknowledge that EasyVoipCall does not offer primary line or lifeline services. You should always have an alternative means of accessing traditional E911 services.
2.14 Limitation of Liability and Indemnification
Neither EasyVoipCall nor its officers or employees may be held liable for any claim, damage, or loss, and you hereby waive any and all such claims or causes of action, arising from or relating to any Service outage and/or inability to dial 911 from your line or to access emergency service personnel unless it is proven that the act or omission proximately causing the claim, damage, or loss constitutes gross negligence, recklessness, or intentional misconduct on the part of EasyVoipCall.
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless EasyVoipCall, its officers, directors, employees, affiliates and agents and any other service provider who furnishes services to Customer or to EasyVoipCall in connection with this Agreement or the Service, from any and all claims, losses, damages, fines, penalties, costs and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable legal fees and expenses) by, or on behalf of, Customer or any third party or user of Customer's Service relating to the absence, failure or outage of the Service, including 911 dialing and/or inability of Customer or any third person or party or user of Customer's Service to be able to dial 911 or to access emergency service personnel, and any misroutes of 911 calls, including but not limited to your failure to follow correct activation procedures for 911 calling or your provision to EasyVoipCall of incorrect information in connection therewith.
3. CHANGES TO THIS AGREEMENT
EasyVoipCall may from time to time change the terms and conditions of the Service and this Agreement, as well as amounts charged under this Agreement, by providing advance notice to the Customer in accordance with this Section 3, or as otherwise required by applicable law. Notices will be considered given and effective on the date posted on to the "Service Announcements" section of EasyVoipCall's website (currently located at http://www.EasyVoipCall.com/features_terms_service.php for Customers located in the United States, or http://www.EasyVoipCall.ca/features_terms_service.php for Customers located in Canada). Such changes will become binding on Customer, on the date posted to the EasyVoipCall website and no further notice by EasyVoipCall is required. This Agreement as posted supersedes all previously agreed to electronic and written terms of service, including without limitation any terms included with the packaging of the Device and also supersedes any written terms provided to Retail Customers in connection with retail distribution, including without limitation any written terms enclosed within the packaging of the Device. If this Agreement is amended and Customer does not wish to accept the amendment, Customer may terminate the Agreement as provided in Section 1.1.
4. CHARGES / PAYMENTS / DEFAULT / TAXES / TERMINATION
You must give us a valid credit card number (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express or any other issuer then-accepted by EasyVoipCall) when the Service is activated. EasyVoipCall reserves the right to stop accepting credit cards from one or more issuers. If the card expires, you close your account, your billing address changes, or the card is cancelled and replaced owing to loss or theft, you must advise EasyVoipCall at once. We will bill all charges, applicable taxes and surcharges monthly in advance (except for usage-based charges, which will be billed monthly in arrears, and any other charges which EasyVoipCall decides to bill in arrears) to your credit card, including but not limited to: activation fees, monthly Service fees, international usage charges, advanced feature charges, equipment purchases, disconnect fees and shipping and handling charges. EasyVoipCall reserves the right to bill at more frequent intervals if the amount due at any time exceeds $50. Any usage charges will be billed in increments that are rounded up to the nearest minute except as otherwise set forth in the rate schedules found on EasyVoipCall's website.
4.2 Billing Disputes
You must notify EasyVoipCall in writing within 7 days after receiving your credit card statement if you dispute any EasyVoipCall charges on that statement or such dispute will be deemed waived. Billing disputes should be notified to the following address:
Customer Care Billing Department
EasyVoipCall accepts payments only by credit card as set forth in Section 4.1. Your initial use of the Service authorizes EasyVoipCall to charge the credit card account number on file with EasyVoipCall, including any changed information given EasyVoipCall if the card expires or is replaced, or if you substitute a different card, for EasyVoipCall charges as set forth in Section.
4.1. This authorization will remain valid until 30 days after EasyVoipCall receives your written notice terminating EasyVoipCall's authority to charge your credit card, whereupon EasyVoipCall will charge you the disconnect fee and any other outstanding charges and terminate the Service. EasyVoipCall may terminate your Service at any time in its sole discretion, if any charge to your credit card on file with EasyVoipCall is declined or reversed, your credit card expires and you have not provided EasyVoipCall with a valid replacement credit card or in case of any other non-payment of account charges. Termination of Service for declined or expired card, reversed charges or non-payment leaves you FULLY LIABLE to EasyVoipCall for ALL CHARGES ACCRUED BEFORE TERMINATION and for all costs incurred by EasyVoipCall in collecting such amounts, such as (but not limited to) collection costs and legal fees and expenses.
4.4 Termination/Discontinuance of Service
EasyVoipCall reserves the right to suspend or discontinue providing the Service generally, or to terminate your Service, at any time in its sole discretion. If EasyVoipCall discontinues providing the Service generally, or terminates your Service in its discretion without a stated reason, you will only be responsible for charges accrued through the date of termination, including a pro-rated portion of the final month's charges. If your Service is terminated for any stated reason, including without limitation violation of this Agreement, or because of any improper use of the Service or Device (such as, but not limited to, your attempts to hack, disrupt, or misuse the Service or your acts or omissions that violate any acceptable use policy of EasyVoipCall or of a third party provider to which EasyVoipCall is subject), you will be responsible for the full month's charges to the end of the current term, including without limitation unbilled charges, plus the disconnect fee set forth in Section 4.6, all of which immediately become due and payable.
You are responsible for, and shall pay, any applicable federal, state, provincial, municipal, local or other governmental sales, use, excise, value-added, personal property, public utility, goods and services, harmonized or other taxes, fees or charges now in force or enacted in the future, that arise from or as a result of your subscription or use or payment for the Service or a Device. Such amounts are in addition to payment for the Service or Devices and will be billed to your credit card as set forth in this Agreement. If you are exempt from payment of such taxes, you shall provide EasyVoipCall with an original certificate that satisfies applicable legal requirement attesting to tax-exempt status. Tax exemption will only apply from and after the date EasyVoipCall receives such certificate.
4.6 Disconnect Fee
Customer will be charged a disconnect fee of $49.99 per voice line upon termination of Service for any reason or for convenience by Customer. The disconnect fee becomes due and payable immediately upon termination and will be billed directly to Customer's credit card. If Customer has multiple lines, Customer will be charged a disconnect fee of $49.99 per line for each line disconnected. To receive a credit for the disconnect fee, Customer must return the Device(s) undamaged and in original condition within fourteen (14) days of termination as set forth in Section 1.8. EasyVoipCall will not credit Customer if the Device(s) is damaged or not in its original condition as received by the Customer or if Customer has otherwise failed to comply fully with the requirements of Section 1.8. In the event Customer disconnects multiple lines, EasyVoipCall will issue Customer a credit for all disconnect fees upon receipt of all Devices (including without limitation Multimedia Terminal Adapters) in accordance with this Section and Section 1.8. Disconnect Fee does not apply to Business Plus Customers.
4.7 Money Back Guarantee; Limitations and Conditions
