IPitomy Communications, LLC Basic Services Agreement
This IPitomy Communications, LLC Basic Services Agreement dated as of the application sets forth the terms agreed to, by and between IPitomy Communications, LLC ("IPITOMY "), a Florida LLC with offices at 2837 Cattlemen Road Sarasota, FL 34232 and the Party identified in the application ("Customer").
Whereas, IPITOMY owns and operates a communications network and is in the business of providing communications services to other entities; and
Whereas, Customer desires to purchase from IPITOMY certain services available through the IPITOMY network;
Whereas, IPITOMY is willing to sell such services to Customer according to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement (the “Services”);
Now, therefore, in consideration of the foregoing recitals and the covenants contained herein and other good and valuable consideration, the two parties agree as follows:
- TERM- The term of this Agreement ("Term") begins on the Effective Date and ends after the selected term. Customer agrees to pay for Services for the duration of this agreement. Cancellation of this Agreement does not alleviate Customer of responsibility for paying all unpaid, accrued charges due hereunder.
- 911 & SERVICE LIMITATIONS- The Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) requires that IPITOMY provide E911 Service to all customers who use IPITOMY services within the United States.
2.1. CUSTOMER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IPITOMY 'S EQUIPMENT AND SERVICES DO NOT SUPPORT 911 EMERGENCY DIALING OR OTHER EMERGENCY FUNCTIONS IN THE SAME WAY THAT TRADITIONAL LAND LINE 911 SERVICES WORK. THE DIFFERENCES ARE DETAILED IN THIS SECTION 2 AND CUSTOMER HEREBY AGREES TO NOTIFY ANY POTENTIAL USER OF THE SERVICES, WHO MAY PLACE CALLS USING CUSTOMER'S SERVICES, OF THE 911 LIMITATIONS DESCRIBED HEREIN. IPITOMY WILL PROVIDE CUSTOMER WITH ADVISORY NOTICES REGARDING 911 EMERGENCY DIALING AND REQUEST ACKNOWLEDGMENTS FROM CUSTOMER. CUSTOMER AGREES TO RESPOND AND AFFIRMATIVELY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT IPITOMY HAS ADVISED CUSTOMER OF THE CIRCUMSTANCES UNDER WHICH IPITOMY E911 SERVICE MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE OR MAY BE LIMITED IN COMPARISON TO TRADITIONAL 911 EMERGENCY DIALING. IPITOMY ADVISES CUSTOMER TO MAINTAIN AN ALTERNATIVE MEANS OF ACCESSING TRADITIONAL 911 SERVICES.
2.2. CUSTOMER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THE SERVICES WILL NOT FUNCTION IN THE ABSENCE OF ELECTRICAL POWER.
2.3. CUSTOMER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THE SERVICES WILL NOT FUNCTION PROPERLY IF THERE IS AN INTERRUPTION OR A LACK OF BANDWIDTH OF CUSTOMER'S BROADBAND OR HIGH-SPEED INTERNET ACCESS SERVICE.
2.4. CUSTOMER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THE SERVICES ARE NOT SET UP TO FUNCTION WITH OUTDIALING SYSTEMS INCLUDING HOME SECURITY SYSTEMS, MEDICAL MONITORING EQUIPMENT, TTY EQUIPMENT, AND ENTERTAINMENT OR SATELLITE TELEVISION SYSTEMS. CUSTOMER HEREBY WAIVES ALL CLAIMS AGAINST IPITOMY FOR INTERRUPTION OR DISRUPTION OF SUCH SYSTEMS BY THE SERVICES.
2.5. IPITOMY E911 SERVICE IS A MANDATORY COMPONENT OF ALL INBOUND/OUTBOUND FAX AND VOICE SERVICE PLANS. E911 SERVICE IS NOT OFFERED ON VIRTUAL NUMBERS, TOLL FREE NUMBERS OR SIMILAR SERVICE ACCESSORIES OR ADD-ON PLANS. E911 SERVICE IS ONLY AVAILABLE IN SELECTED AREAS. CUSTOMERS WHO SUBSCRIBE TO IPITOMY E911 SERVICE WILL BE REQUIRED TO REGISTER THE PHYSICAL LOCATION OF THEIR EQUIPMENT (ATA or IP PHONE) WITH IPITOMY , ON THE INITIAL ORDER FORMS OR BY CALLING CUSTOMER SERVICE, AND AGREE TO UPDATE THE LOCATION WHENEVER THE PHYSICAL LOCATION OF SERVICE CHANGES. CUSTOMER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IPITOMY ’S ONLY MECHANISM FOR ROUTING 911 CALLS TO THE CORRECT EMERGENCY CALL TAKER IS THE PHYSICAL LOCATION CURRENTLY REGISTERED FOR THE ACCOUNT. CUSTOMER ACKNOWLEDGES AND UNDERSTANDS THAT ANY ENHANCED LOCATION INFORMATION PASSED TO AN EMERGENCY OPERATOR BY IPITOMY WILL BE BASED UPON THE PHYSICAL LOCATION PROVIDED TO IPITOMY BY CUSTOMER. IN THE EVENT THAT THE PHYSICAL LOCATION HAS NOT BEEN UPDATED OR IS NOT COMPLETE, IPITOMY MAY ATTEMPT TO ROUTE A 911 CALL BASED UPON THE BILL-TO OR SHIP-TO ADDRESSES ASSOCIATED WITH THE CUSTOMER’S ACCOUNT OR INITIAL ORDER.
2.6. THE CUSTOMER ALSO ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IPITOMY E911 SERVICE HAS CERTAIN CHARACTERISTICS THAT DISTINGUISH IT FROM TRADITIONAL, LEGACY, CIRCUIT-SWITCHED 911 SERVICE. THESE CHARACTERISTICS MAY MAKE IPITOMY ’S E911 SERVICES UNSUITABLE FOR SOME CUSTOMERS. BECAUSE EACH CUSTOMER’S CIRCUMSTANCES MAY VARY WIDELY, CUSTOMERS SHOULD CAREFULLY EVALUATE THEIR OWN CIRCUMSTANCES WHEN DECIDING WHETHER TO RELY SOLELY UPON IPITOMY E911 SERVICE. CUSTOMER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT IT IS CUSTOMER’S RESPONSIBILITY TO DETERMINE THE TECHNOLOGY OR COMBINATION OF TECHNOLOGIES BEST SUITED TO MEET CUSTOMER'S EMERGENCY CALLING NEEDS, AND TO MAKE THE NECESSARY PROVISIONS FOR ACCESS TO EMERGENCY CALLING SERVICES (SUCH AS MAINTAINING A CONVENTIONAL LANDLINE PHONE OR WIRELESS PHONE AS A BACKUP MEANS OF COMPLETING EMERGENCY CALLS). THE FOLLOWING CHARACTERISTICS DISTINGUISH IPITOMY E911 SERVICE FROM TRADITIONAL, LEGACY, CIRCUIT-SWITCHED 911 SERVICE:
** IPITOMY E911 SERVICE WILL NOT FUNCTION IF CUSTOMER'S ATA or IP PHONE FAILS OR IS NOT CONFIGURED CORRECTLY OR IF CUSTOMER'S IPITOMY SERVICE IS NOT FUNCTIONING FOR ANY REASON, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ELECTRICAL POWER OUTAGE, BROADBAND SERVICE OUTAGE, OR SUSPENSION OR DISCONNECTION OF SERVICE BECAUSE OF BILLING OR OTHER ISSUES. IF THERE IS A POWER OUTAGE, CUSTOMER MAY BE REQUIRED TO RESET OR RECONFIGURE THE EQUIPMENT BEFORE BEING ABLE TO USE THE IPITOMY SERVICE, INCLUDING FOR E911 PURPOSES.
** AFTER INITIAL ACTIVATION OF THE E911 SERVICE, AND FOLLOWING ANY CHANGE OF AND UPDATE TO CUSTOMER’S PHYSICAL LOCATION, THERE MAY BE SOME DELAY BEFORE THE AUTOMATIC NUMBER AND LOCATION INFORMATION IS PASSED TO THE LOCAL EMERGENCY SERVICE OPERATOR. THIS INFORMATION IS TYPICALLY POPULATED INTO IPITOMY ’S NOMADIC E911 DATABASES PRIOR TO SERVICE ACTIVATION, BUT NO GUARANTEE CAN BE MADE THAT THE AUTOMATIC NUMBER AND LOCATION INFORMATION WILL BE ACTIVATED WITHIN THIS SCHEDULE.
** THE LOCAL EMERGENCY SERVICE OPERATOR RECEIVING IPITOMY E911 EMERGENCY SERVICE CALLS MAY NOT HAVE A SYSTEM CONFIGURED FOR E911 SERVICES OR BE ABLE TO CAPTURE AND/OR RETAIN AUTOMATIC NUMBER OR LOCATION INFORMATION. THIS MEANS THAT THE OPERATOR MAY NOT KNOW THE PHONE NUMBER OR PHYSICAL LOCATION OF THE PERSON WHO IS MAKING THE IPITOMY E911 CALL. DUE TO TECHNICAL FACTORS IN NETWORK DESIGN, AND IN THE EVENT OF NETWORK CONGESTION ON THE IPITOMY NETWORK, THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT A IPITOMY E911 CALL WILL PRODUCE A BUSY SIGNAL OR WILL EXPERIENCE UNEXPECTED ANSWERING WAIT TIMES AND/OR TAKE LONGER TO ANSWER THAN 911 CALLS PLACED VIA TRADITIONAL, LEGACY, CIRCUIT-SWITCHED TELEPHONE NETWORKS.
** IF A CUSTOMER DOES NOT CORRECTLY IDENTIFY THE ACTUAL LOCATION WHERE THE IPITOMY EQUIPMENT WILL BE LOCATED AT THE TIME OF ACTIVATION OF THE SERVICE, IPITOMY E911 COMMUNICATIONS MAY NOT BE DIRECTED TO THE CORRECT LOCAL EMERGENCY OPERATOR.
2.7 CUSTOMER ACKNOWLEDGES AND UNDERSTANDS THAT IPITOMY WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY SERVICE OUTAGE AND/OR INABILITY TO DIAL 911 OR ANY OTHER EMERGENCY TELEPHONE NUMBER USING IPITOMY OR TO ACCESS AN EMERGENCY SERVICE OPERATOR DUE TO THE 911 DIALING CHARACTERISTICS AND LIMITATIONS SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT. CUSTOMER AGREES TO DEFEND, INDEMNIFY, AND HOLD HARMLESS IPITOMY , ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AFFILIATES AND AGENTS AND ANY OTHER SERVICE PROVIDER WHO FURNISHES SERVICES TO CUSTOMER IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICES, FROM ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, LOSSES, DAMAGES, FINES, PENALTIES, COSTS AND EXPENSES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, REASONABLE ATTORNEY FEES) BY, OR ON BEHALF OF, CUSTOMER OR ANY THIRD PARTY OR USER OF THE SERVICE RELATING TO THE FAILURE OR OUTAGE OF THE SERVICE, INCLUDING THOSE RELATED TO 911 DIALING.
- EQUIPMENT - To provide the Services, IPITOMY may sell certain equipment to Customer, including Provider Equipment (as defined below) and Customer Premise Equipment (as defined below). All equipment shipments are F.O.B. IPITOMY’s facility. IPITOMY’s liability for delivery shall cease, and title (if applicable) and all risk of loss or damage shall pass to Customer upon delivery to Customer. Customer will be provided a twelve (12) month warranty from the date of purchase of equipment. Customer shall be required to obtain an authorization from IPITOMY to return any equipment. IPITOMY will provide replacement equipment only if the equipment is deemed to be defective and covered under the warranty. IPITOMY will not cover replacement for lost, stolen or modified equipment. Equipment returned by Customer that is not covered under warranty may be refused by IPITOMY and Customer will be responsible for all return shipping charges.
- BILLING, CHARGES AND PAYMENTS
4.1. PAYMENT - Upon purchase of the Service, Customer may be asked to provide IPITOMY with ACH Debit information or a valid credit card number from an issuer that is accepted by IPITOMY. Customer authorizes IPITOMY to charge the ACH account and/or credit card number provided by Customer for all charges arising from Customer's use of the Services as well as fees related to any disconnection of the Service if payment is not made on time. Customer agrees to notify IPITOMY of any change to the ACH Debit or credit card information including, but not limited to, changes in account number, expiration date or billing address. IPITOMY shall not be responsible for any charges made by the bank or credit card issuer to Customer’s account for exceeding credit limit, insufficient funds or other reasons. Customer's account will not be billed until product or equipment has shipped. Estimated ship dates are approximate and are not guaranteed.
4.2 LATE/NON-PAYMENT- If any charges for the Services are due but unpaid for any reason including, but not limited to, non-payment or declined credit card charges, IPITOMY may suspend or terminate the Services and all accrued charges shall be immediately due, plus a late fee of the lesser of 1.5% per month or the maximum allowed by law accrued from the date of invoice until payment in full is received by IPITOMY. If charges cannot be processed to the credit card and the Customer’s account is suspended, Customer’s will be charged a fee of fifty dollars ($50.00) to reactivate the account. No suspension or termination of the Services or of this Agreement shall relieve Customer’s from paying any amounts due hereunder.
4.3. CREDIT TERMS - All Services provided to Customer and covered by this Agreement shall at all times be subject to credit approval or review by IPITOMY. Customer will provide such credit information or assurance as is requested by IPITOMY at any time. IPITOMY, in its sole discretion and judgment, may discontinue credit at any time without notice and/or require a deposit or prepayment or automated payment by credit card or ACH Debit.
4.4. BILLING - IPITOMY will provide Customer with a monthly billing statement sent by electronic mail for all Services provided. Such charges shall include activation fees, monthly service fees, shipping charges, disconnection fees, equipment charges, toll charges, taxes and any other applicable charges.

Monthly service fees are billed in advance of each month's service; toll charges and any other applicable charges are billed subsequent to the end of each month's service. Billing for monthly service fees commences upon purchase of the Services, and the first month's monthly service fee shall be prorated to take into account any partial month that may occur as the result of the date monthly service fees are initiated. IPITOMY and Customer also agree that additional services may be ordered from time to time after the initial installation and commencement of Services. Therefore, additional customer order schedules may be executed and will contain pricing and a full description of the additional services to be provided by IPITOMY. Regardless of the date of execution of the additional customer order schedules, any and all customer order schedules executed between IPITOMY and Customer shall incorporate all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement unless specifically stated otherwise in writing.
4.5. RATE CHANGES - IPITOMY may change the prices for the Services and toll charges from time to time. IPITOMY may change prices, plans, taxes or fees with thirty (30) days advance written notice. International toll calling rates are updated monthly on the web site on the first of each month and no other notice shall be provided for changes to international toll calling rates. In the event that a term for a specific time is agreed to as may be stated in 1. Term in this agreement, this only binds for the monthly package price and not for possible rate changes for International, 800 calls, or tax increases.
4.6. CREDITS - Customer acknowledges and agrees that the Services are provided "as is, where is." Credit allowances for interruption of the Services shall not be provided.
4.7. BILLING DISPUTES - Customer must provide IPITOMY with written notice of any disputed charge(s) within thirty (30) days after the invoice dates listed on the bill or shall be deemed to have waived its right to dispute the charges. The dispute notice shall be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and shall set forth in reasonable detail with the information concerning the disputed charges and the reason for the dispute. IPITOMY and Customer will both act in good faith to promptly resolve any dispute.
4.8. TAXES - Prices for the Services do not include any customs, duties, sales, use, value added, excise, federal, state, local, public utility, universal service or other similar taxes. All such taxes shall be paid by Customer and will be added to any amounts otherwise charged to Customer unless Customer provides IPITOMY with an appropriate exemption certificate. If any amounts paid for the Services are refunded by IPITOMY, applicable taxes may not be refundable.
- TELEPHONE NUMBER- Any telephone number provided by IPITOMY ("Number") to the Customer shall be considered leased and not sold. Customer shall not use the Number with any service without the express written permission of IPITOMY. IPITOMY reserves the right to change, cancel or move the Number at its sole discretion. At IPITOMY’s discretion, IPITOMY may release the Number to Customer at the end of the Term.
- PROHIBITED USES- Any use of the Services or any other action that causes a disruption in the network integrity of IPITOMY or its vendors, whether directly or indirectly, is strictly prohibited and could result in termination of the Services at the sole discretion of IPITOMY. Customer understands that neither IPITOMY nor its vendors are responsible for the content of the transmissions that may pass through the Internet and/or the Services. Customer agrees that it will NOT use the Services in ways that violate laws (including but not limited to laws prohibiting transmission of unsolicited fax advertisements), infringe the rights of others, or interfere with the users, services, or equipment of the network. Customer agrees and represents that it is purchasing the Services and/or the Equipment for its own internal use only, and shall not resell, transfer or make a charge for the Services or the Equipment without the advance express written permission of IPITOMY. Customer shall not transmit through the Service any unlawful, harassing, libelous, abusive, threatening, harmful, vulgar, obscene or otherwise objectionable material of any kind or nature. Customer further agrees not to transmit any material that encourages conduct that could constitute a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability or otherwise violate any applicable local, state, national or international law or regulation. Any use found to be inconsistent with this restriction will result in termination of the Service.
- CHANGES TO THE AGREEMENT, SERVICES OR PLAN- IPITOMY reserves the right to make changes to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. In the event of a change of such terms and conditions, IPITOMY will post the change to the web site currently located at www.IPITOMY .net. Customer reserves the right to cancel this Agreement if it finds the change in terms and conditions to be unacceptable. However, a change in international toll rates does not represent a change in terms to the Agreement. Any cancellation must be in writing and presented to IPITOMY within fifteen (15) days of IPITOMY’s notice of the change. Customer may request a Plan change at any time, subject to any applicable change of service fee and additional terms and conditions. The Plan change will take effect in the first month after the Plan is changed.
- NOTICE- Notice will be considered received by Customers and such changes will become binding to Customers, on the effective date of changes are posted to the web site ("Change Date"), and no additional notice will be required.

If Customer does not consent to the change of Service and terminates this Agreement, Customer will be responsible for any sums due hereunder in addition to any applicable disconnection fee pursuant to Section 9. Customer may request a Plan change at any time, subject to any applicable change of service fee and additional terms and conditions. All notices to IPITOMY must be in writing and may be mailed to:

- TERMINATION- Customer agrees to provide IPITOMY with thirty (30) days written notice of termination on month to month agreements. Customer shall be responsible for the full monthly service fee for the month after which the notice of termination of Service is provided to IPITOMY. Multiyear agreements are cancelable with 30 days’ notice or the Agreement automatically renews for the same duration of the original multi-year Agreement. Customer cancelling a multi-year Agreement prior to the end of the term agrees to pay a cancellation fee equal to 70% of the remaining amount due to the end of the term upon cancellation. IPITOMY reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to suspend, terminate or change the Services without advance notice for any reason, including without limitation, misuse of the Services in any way, Customer's breach of this Agreement, Customer's failure to pay any sum due hereunder, suspected fraud or other activity by Customer that adversely affects the Services, IPITOMY’s network or other Customers' use of the Services.

- 23. Waiver and Release of Liability for International Long Distance Services
READ BEFORE SIGNING
In consideration of being allowed to send international long distance calls over the IPitomy global Voip network, the undersigned acknowledges, appreciates, and agrees that:
The risk of opening up our phone system to send expensive international long distance calls is significant, including the potential for international toll fraud caused by outside parties hacking into our phone system and sending out expensive international long distance calls which we will be charged for.
We acknowledge that IPitomy has given us the option of choosing other international long distance service plans. Choosing an international plan exposes us to the greatest risk.
We understand that there are several things that we can do to reduce or eliminate this risk including choosing a different service plan, not allowing international long distance calls from our phone system, not allowing access to our phone system from international IP addresses and maintaining passwords for our system that are difficult to break in to.
I KNOWINGLY AND FREELY ASSUME ALL SUCH RISKS, both known and unknown, EVEN IF ARISING FROM THE NEGLIGENCE OF THE RELEASEES or others, and assume full financial responsibility for my participation.
I willingly agree to comply with the stated terms and conditions of the IPitomy Basic Services Agreement.
WE HEREBY RELEASE AND HOLD HARMLESS IPitomy Communications, LLC, their officers, officials, agents, employees and owners (“RELEASEES”), WITH RESPECT TO ANY AND ALL financial responsibility related to using their international long distance services, WHETHER ARISING FROM THE NEGLIGENCE OF THE RELEASEES OR OTHERWISE, to the fullest extent permitted by law.
I HAVE READ THIS RELEASE OF LIABILITY AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK AGREEMENT, FULLY UNDERSTAND ITS TERMS, UNDERSTAND THAT I HAVE GIVEN UP SUBSTANTIAL RIGHTS BY SIGNING IT, AND SIGN IT FREELY AND VOLUNTARILY WITHOUT ANY INDUCEMENT.
By Checking the Agreement check box and/or Signature on the IPitomy Cloud Services Application or by using IPitomy Cloud Services you agree to the terms and conditions of the above agreement.
