Service is billed on a calendar-month basis for a term which begins on the date that you signup for Ktech Network service and closes on the last day of the calendar-month.
Subsequent terms of this Agreement automatically renew on a calendar-month basis without further action by you. You may terminate your service by calling customer service before the last day of the calendar-month and following procedures for cancellation. You are purchasing the Service for full calendar-month terms, meaning that if you attempt to terminate Service prior to the end of a monthly term, you will be responsible for the full calendar month's charges to the end of the then-current term, including without limitation unbilled charges under the terms of this Agreement, all of which immediately become due, payable, and chargeable to your credit card. 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. New customers to Ktech Network are billed the prorated portion of the service plan for the calendar month in which they activate service.
The Service requires standard SIP based customer premise equipment ("CPE" or "device") which will be provided by Ktech Network or approved agents of Ktech Network pursuant to the terms of this Agreement. Use of the Service without such approved equipment is strictly prohibited.
You agree to use the Service only for lawful purposes. You agree not to use the Service for any unlawful purpose, including for example, using the Service in a way that (1) interferes with our ability to provide Service to you or other customers, or (2) avoids your obligation to pay for the Services. You also agree not to use the Service for transmitting or receiving any communication or material of any kind which would (1) constitute a criminal offense, give rise to a civil liability, or otherwise violate any applicable local, state, national or international law or (2) encourage conduct that would constitute a criminal offense, give rise to a civil liability, or otherwise violate any applicable local, state, national or international law. Ktech Network reserves the right to terminate the Service immediately and without advance notice if Ktech Network, 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 all of which immediately become due, payable and chargeable to your credit card. If Ktech Network, in its sole discretion believes that you have violated the above restrictions, Ktech Network may forward the objectionable material, as well as your communications with Ktech Network and your personally identifiable information to the appropriate authorities for investigation and prosecution, and by using the Service you thereby consent to such forwarding.
You acknowledge and understand that the Service does not function in the event of a power failure. Should there be an interruption in the power supply, the Service will not function until power is restored. A power failure or disruption may require you to reset or reconfigure the Device and other CPE equipment prior to using the Service. You also acknowledge and understand that the Service requires a fully functional broadband connection to the Internet and that, accordingly, in the event of an outage of, or termination of broadband service with or by your Internet service provider ("ISP") and/or broadband provider, the Service will not function. If there is an interruption in the power supply and/or an ISP/broadband outage, the Service will not function until the power supply is restored and/or the ISP/broadband outage fixed. You will continue to be billed for the Service during such failures, terminations and/or outages unless and until you or Ktech Network terminate the Service in accordance with this Agreement.
With traditional Enhanced 911 (“E911”) emergency Service, when you dial “911”, your telephone number and registered address is simultaneously sent to the local emergency center assigned to your location, and emergency operators have immediate access to your telephone and address, thus permitting them to respond to your emergency call or to call you back if necessary. With Ktech Network’s Service, if you are located in an area where the emergency center does not support E911 emergency Service (i.e., is not capable of simultaneously receiving your telephone number and address), You have basic 911 emergency Service. If you have basic 911 emergency Service, the local emergency operator will not have immediate access to your call back number or to your exact location when receiving your emergency call. Accordingly, you must be prepared to give the basic 911 emergency operator this information. Until and unless you do so, the basic 911 emergency operator may not be able to call you back or dispatch assistance if the call is disconnected or if you are unable to verbally communicate that information.
We require you to provide the physical address where you will be using our service for 911 purposes. For E911 and basic 911, this address is used to route 911 calls to your local emergency center. When you initially provide your physical address, it can take up to 120 minutes to verify your address and activate 911 services at this address.
If you move this device to another location, you must update your address by calling customer service. You may register only one location at time. If you do not update your location, your 911 calls may be sent to an emergency center near your old address. When you update your location, it can take several hours to activate 911 services at the updated address.
You understand and acknowledge that Ktech Network’s 911 emergency Service has certain limitations and works differently when compared to traditional 911 emergency service. Ktech Network’s 911 emergency Service limitations and the way Ktech Network deploys its 911 emergency Service may make Ktech Network unsuitable to some users. You should carefully evaluate Ktech Network’s 911 emergency Service limitations when deciding to activate Ktech Network’s Service. You agree and acknowledge that it is your responsibility to select a 911 emergency service provider best suited to meet your emergency calling needs, and to make the necessary arrangements for accessing emergency calling services, such as maintaining a traditional phone line or cellular (mobile) phone as a backup means for your emergency calls. By entering into this Agreement, You will be presumed to have assumed the risk of losing 911 emergency dialing capabilities and agree to provide your telephone number and other identifying information to 911 emergency authorities as you deem necessary (in your sole opinion and discretion) in case of an emergency. Ktech Network assumes no liability for the failure of E911 to perform and assumes no liability if you move and do not update your E911 address information.
Ktech Network depends upon certain third parties to provide 911 emergency Service and is thus subject to their network implementation and deployment schedules. Consequently, E911 emergency Service may be limited or unavailable in certain geographic areas until these third parties have completed this implementation and deployment. When you sign-up for the Service, we will advise you of the kind of 911 emergency Service, E911 or basic 911, that will be available with your Service. When there is a problem validating your information and/or address or you are identified with an international location, your 911 emergency call will be sent to the national emergency call center. In addition, emergency personnel will not receive your telephone number or know your physical location when your 911 emergency call is routed to the national emergency call center. Routing to a national emergency call center could substantially delay the response of emergency service providers or could result in no emergency service being provided to you at all.
Ktech Network 911 and E911 Emergency Service may also be Limited or Unavailable in the Following Circumstances:
If your Digital Subscriber Line (“DSL”), cable modem, or other broadband access connections are disconnected, suspended, or interrupted for any reason, including electric power failures.
If you relocate or move the Ktech Network Adapter and/or device to a location other than the one that you registered with us or if you otherwise disconnect or modify the Ktech Network Adapter and/or device.
If you change your telephone number or if you add new telephone numbers to your account, and do not successfully register your location of use for each changed or newly added telephone number.
If there are delays or disruptions of Service in the network or Services of Ktech Network’s E911 underlying service provider.
If there is network congestion and/or a reduction in network speed; or
If Service is interrupted or terminated for any reason, including the suspension or termination of your account with us or with your broadband access supplier.
While Ktech Network will make commercially reasonable efforts to minimize the disruptive effects of Ktech Network’s Service interruptions, degradations, or outages, it makes no guarantees or assurances that these will not occur. Such commercially reasonable efforts are Ktech Network’s sole obligation regarding such interruptions. Such outages or other Service disruptions may include loss of 911 emergency Service dialing capabilities for extended periods of time.
