Terms of Service
UPBOOK TERMS OF SERVICE
UPbook (™) provides telecommunications services, including local exchange telephone service, on a month to month basis. Failure to make payments for charges for telecommunications services incurred may result in disconnection of service following notification. The service is furnished subject to the condition that it will not be used for any unlawful purpose.
AVAILABILITY OF FACILITIES
UPbook (™) will use reasonable efforts to make services available to you on or before a particular date, but does not guarantee availability by any such date and will not be liable for any delays in commencing service to any customer.
UPbook (™) reserves the right to limit or to allocate the use of existing facilities, or of additional facilities, when necessary because of lack of facilities, or due to some other cause beyond the company’s control. The furnishing of telecommunications services is subject to the continuing availability of all necessary rights and facilities and is limited to the capacity of UPbook’s(™)’ facilities and facilities UPbook (™) may obtain from other carriers from time to time as required at its sole discretion.
EMERGENCY 911 AND E911 SERVICES
UPbook’s (™) Voice Over IP service provides 911 or E911 emergency calling access to police, fire and medical services. By entering into the Contract, Customer agrees and consents to the release of information under the 911 or E911 services.
With E911 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 access to the information they need to send help and call you back if necessary.
If you do not provide the correct address when you register for the services or if you relocate your UPbook (™) EMTA Equipment to a new address and do not register the new address with UPbook, 911/E911 may fail in two ways: (i) 911/E911 calls may be misdirected to the wrong emergency authorities, and (ii) emergency authorities will be given the wrong address for the origin of your E911 calls. Do not relocate the UPbook (™) EMTA Equipment for any reason without contacting UPbook (™) Communications and following the procedures outlined in the section describing UPbook (™) EMTA Equipment.
During service outage, service suspension, power failure or disruption, 911/E911 will not function in the event of a power failure or other disruption in service, such as termination or suspension of your account or service by UPbook (™) for nonpayment or your breach of the Agreement.
Customers in locations where the emergency center is not properly equipped to receive your telephone number and address have basic 911. With basic 911, the local emergency operator answering the call will not have your call back number or your location, so you must be prepared to give them this information. Until you give the operator your phone number, they may not be able to call you back or dispatch help if the call is not completed, dropped or disconnected.
If Customer has call forwarding, do not disturb, or other features programmed and in use at the time Customer dials a 911 call and Customer’s 911 call is interrupted, the emergency dispatcher may not be able to call Customer back at the phone from which Customer dialed the call. Existing emergency response systems are not always technically capable of receiving and/or passing routing information properly. Accordingly, emergency personnel may not be able to identify your phone number in order to call you back if your call is not completed, dropped or disconnected, or if you are unable to speak to tell the emergency dispatcher or operator your phone number and/or if the service is not operational for any reason.
REGULATORY FEES AND TAXES
You are responsible for the payment of line items on your bill associated with regulatory and non-regulatory assessments and surcharges, privilege and license fees, and local, state and federal taxes assessed upon UPbook(™) by governmental jurisdictions, all of which are separately designated on your bill, taxes imposed by a local jurisdiction (i.e., county and municipality) are recovered only from those customers residing in that local jurisdiction. FEDERAL UNIVERSAL SERVICE FUND FEE (FUSF) is a federal fee for a fund that helps bring affordable basic phone service to all Americans, including schools, libraries and rural health care providers. All telecommunication companies, including long distance, local, wireless and pay phone providers, add this charge to cover their required support for the fund. The fee is set by the FCC.
STATE SALES TAX AND LOCAL SALES AND USE TAXES
According to state law, state and local taxes are levied on tangible personal property and taxable services, including amusement services, cable television services, personal services, repair and remodeling services, aircraft services, telecommunications services, real property services, and data processing services. These taxes are considered a part of the total sales price of the telecommunications services provided by UPbook(™).
