RouteMyNumber TERMS OF SERVICE
These Terms of Service constitute the agreement ("Agreement") between RouteMyNumber ("RouteMyNumber", “we”, or “us”) and the user ("you," "user(s)" or "Customer") of RouteMyNumber's communications services and any related products or services ("Service"). This Agreement governs both the Service and any devices, such as an Soft Phone or any other IP connection device ("Device" or "Equipment"), used in conjunction with the Service and it applies to all lines on each RouteMyNumber account. By Activating or using this service, you represent that you are of legal age to enter into this agreement and that you have read and understand fully its terms and conditions.
1. EMERGENCY SERVICES - 911 DIALING
1.1 911 Dialing. RouteMyNumber does not offer 911 services.
2. SERVICE TERM.
2.1 (a) Service Term. Service is offered and paid for on a prescribed recurring basis for a term that begins on the date that RouteMyNumber activates your Service and ends on the day before the same date in the following period ("Service Term"). Subsequent terms of this Agreement automatically renew for the same Service Term unless you give us written notice of non-renewal at least twelve (12) days before the end of the applicable Service Term. You are purchasing the Service for the full Service Term, meaning that if you attempt to disconnect Service prior to the end of the applicable Service Term, you will be responsible for all charges relating to the then-current Service Term, including unbilled charges, plus a disconnection fee, if applicable, all of which will immediately become due and payable. You will also be responsible for charges for the following Service Term in the event that you do not provide the requisite ten-day disconnect notice as described above.
2.1(b) Other Commitments. If you accept an equipment upgrade or other promotional or plan benefit, such as a free month of Service, free installation, a rebate or other incentive, there may be a commitment associated with the benefit you accepted ("Commitment"). To the extent there is a Commitment, it begins on the date you activate the new equipment or accept the promotion or benefit. The Commitment period will be disclosed as part of the promotion or plan. If you disconnect service prior to the end of the Commitment period, you agree to pay RouteMyNumber a recovery fee in an amount equal to the difference between the price you paid and the regular price of the good, service or other benefit you received at the time the Commitment period began. Recovery fees are cumulative and in addition to any other charges or fees you may owe RouteMyNumber, including any disconnection fees.
2.1(c) Equipment Ownership: Some equipment is the property of RouteMyNumber, is indicated as such, and typically requires a deposit. If you decide to terminate service with RouteMyNumber, you have 5 days to return the equipment at you own cost. If the equipment is damaged, it is our sole and absolute discretion to keep all, or a portion of the deposit. If the equipment is in good condition, your deposit will be credited to your account upon receipt.
2.2 Residential and Business Use of Service and Device. The Service and the Device are provided to you solely for residential and business use, depending on the plan you select. You shall not resell or transfer the Service or the Device to another party without our prior written consent. You are prohibited from using the Service or the Device for auto-dialing, continuous or extensive call forwarding, telemarketing (including charitable or political solicitation or polling), fax or voicemail broadcasting or fax or voicemail blasting. We reserve the right to immediately disconnect or modify your Service if we determine, in our sole and absolute discretion, that your use of the Service or the Device is, or at any time was, inconsistent with normal residential or business usage patterns. In addition, you will be required to pay our higher rates for commercial service for all periods in which your use of the Service or the Device was inconsistent with normal residential or business use.
2.5 Prohibited Uses; Unlawful Uses and Inappropriate Conduct. You shall use the Service and the Device only for lawful purposes. You shall not use the Service or the Device in any way that is improper or inappropriate, including in a manner that is threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, libelous, deceptive, fraudulent, invasive of another's privacy, or any similar behavior. In addition, you shall not use the Service or the Device to impersonate another person; send bulk unsolicited messages; use robots, data mining techniques or other automated devices or programs to catalog, download, store or otherwise reproduce or distribute information from the Service or use any such automated means to manipulate the Service; use the Service to violate any law, rule or regulation; violate any third party's intellectual property or personal rights; or exceed your permitted access to the Service. We may, but are under no obligation to, monitor usage of the Service for violations of this Agreement. We may remove or block any or all communications if we suspect a violation of this Agreement or if we deem it necessary in order to protect the Service, or RouteMyNumber, officers, agents and employees from harm. We reserve the right to immediately disconnect your Service without notice, if, in our sole and absolute discretion, we determine that you have used the Service or the Device for an unlawful purpose. In the event of such disconnection, you will be responsible for all fees and charges due under this Agreement, plus a disconnection fee, if applicable, all of which will be immediately due and payable. If we believe that you have used the Service or the Device for an unlawful purpose, we may forward the relevant communication and other information, including your identity, to the appropriate authorities for investigation and prosecution. You hereby consent to our forwarding of any such communications and information to these authorities. In addition, RouteMyNumber will provide customer and call detail information in response to lawful government requests, subpoenas and court orders, or law enforcement requests where the failure to disclose the information may lead to imminent harm to the customer or others. Furthermore, RouteMyNumber reserves all of its rights at law and equity to proceed against anyone who uses the Services illegally or improperly.
2.6 Use of Service and Device by Customers Outside the United States. Although we encourage you to use the Service to place calls to foreign countries from within the United States and to use the Service as you travel, RouteMyNumber offers and supports services only in the United States. RouteMyNumber Service is designed to work generally with unencumbered high-speed internet connections. However, if the high-speed internet connection you are using is not within a RouteMyNumber service area, and/or your ISP or other broadband provider places restrictions on the usage of VoIP services, RouteMyNumber does not represent or warrant that use of the Service by you is permitted by such other jurisdiction or by any ISP or broadband provider. You will be solely responsible for any violations of local laws and regulations or violations of ISP and broadband provider terms of service resulting from such use. We reserve the right to disconnect your Service immediately if we determine, in our sole and absolute discretion, that you have used the Service or the Device in violation of laws of jurisdictions outside of RouteMyNumber service areas.
2.7 Copyright; Trademark; Unauthorized Usage of Device; Firmware or Software.
(a) Copyright; Trademark. 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 our websites are protected by trademark, copyright or other intellectual property laws and international treaty provisions. All of our websites, names, service marks, trademarks, trade names, logos and domain names (collectively "marks") are and will at all times remain our exclusive property. Nothing in this Agreement grants you the right or license to use any of our marks.
(b) Unauthorized Usage of Device; Firmware or Software you (i) have not been granted 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, and (ii) expressly agree that the Device is exclusively for use in connection with the Service and that we will not provide any passwords, codes or other information or assistance that would enable you to use the Device for any other purpose. We reserve the right to prohibit the use of any interface device that we have not provided to you. You hereby represent and warrant that you possess all required rights, including software and/or firmware licenses, to use any interface device that we have not provided to you. In addition, you shall indemnify and hold us harmless against any and all liability arising out of your use of such interface device with the Service.
2.8 Tampering with the Device or Service. You shall not change the electronic serial number or equipment identifier of the Device or perform a factory reset of the Device without our prior written consent. We reserve the right to disconnect your Service if we believe, in our sole and absolute discretion, that you have tampered with the Device. In the event of such disconnection, you will remain responsible for all charges through the end of the current Service Term, including unbilled charges, plus a disconnection fee, if applicable, all of which will immediately be due and payable. You shall not attempt to hack or otherwise disrupt the Service or make any use of the Service that is inconsistent with its intended purpose.
2.9 Theft of Service. You shall not use or obtain the Service in any manner that avoids RouteMyNumber policies and procedures, including in an illegal or improper manner. You shall notify us immediately, in writing or by calling our customer support line, if the Device is stolen or if you become aware at any time that your Service is being stolen, fraudulently used or otherwise being used in an unauthorized manner. When you call or write, you must provide your account number and a detailed description of the circumstances of the Device theft, fraudulent use or unauthorized use of Service. Failure to do so in a timely manner may result in the disconnection of your Service and additional charges to you. Until such time as we receive notice of the theft, fraudulent use or unauthorized use, you will be liable for all use of the Service using a Device stolen from you and any and all stolen, fraudulent or unauthorized use of the Service whether or not it involves a stolen Device. RouteMyNumber reserves all of its rights at law and equity to proceed against anyone who uses the Services or Device illegally or improperly.
2.10 Number Transfer on Service Disconnection. Upon the disconnection of your Service, we may, in our sole and absolute discretion, release to your new service provider the telephone number that you ported (transferred or moved over) to us from your previous service provider and used in connection with your Service if:
* such new service provider is able to accept such number;
* your account has been properly disconnected;
* your account is completely current, including payment for all Service charges and applicable disconnection fees; and
* you request the transfer upon disconnecting your account.
2.11 Service Distinctions. The Service is not a telecommunications service and we provide it on a best efforts basis. Things beyond our control may affect the Service, such as power outages, fluctuations in the internet, your underlying ISP or broadband service. Other things may affect Service, such as maintenance. RouteMyNumber will act in good faith to minimize disruptions to your use of and access to Service. Important distinctions exist between a telecommunications service and our Service, and our Service is subject to different regulatory treatment than a telecommunications service. This treatment may limit or otherwise affect your rights of redress before regulatory agencies.
2.12 Ownership and Risk of Loss. You will own 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 to us in accordance with this Agreement.
2.13 No 0+ or Operator Assisted Calling; May Not Support x11 Calling. The Service does not support 0+ or operator assisted calling (including, without limitation, collect calls, third party billing calls, 900 or calling card calls). The Service may not support 311, 511 and/or other x11 services in one or more (or all) service areas.
2.14 No Directory Listing. The phone numbers you obtain from us will not be listed in any telephone directories. Phone numbers transferred from your local phone company may, however, be listed. As a result, someone with your phone number may not be able to utilize a reverse directory to lookup your address.
2.15 Incompatibility With Other Services.
(a) Home Security Systems. The Service may not be compatible with home security systems. You may be required to maintain a telephone connection through your local exchange carrier in order to use any alarm monitoring functions for any security system installed in your home or business. You are responsible for contacting the alarm monitoring company to test the compatibility of any security system with the Service.
(b) Certain Broadband, Cable Modem, and Other Services. You acknowledge that the Service is not compatible with AOL cable broadband service, versions of TiVO, and there may be other services with which the Service may be determined to be incompatible. You further acknowledge that some providers of broadband service may provide modems that prevent the transmission of communications using the Service. We do not warrant that the Services will be compatible with all broadband services and expressly disclaim any express or implied warranties regarding the compatibility of the Service with any particular broadband service.
2.16 Customer Service. We offer varying types and levels of customer service depending upon a number of factors, including the Service you are using and the problems you are experiencing. We assume no obligation to provide support services for any third party products or services, or problems with the Service caused by third party products or services. We may change the customer service options at any time.
3. CHARGES; PAYMENTS; TAXES; DISCONNECTION
3.1 Billing. When the Service is activated, you must provide us with a valid email address and a payment method that we accept. We reserve the right to stop accepting your payment method or your payments. If your payment method expires, you close your account, your billing address changes, or your payment method is cancelled and replaced on account of loss or theft, you must advise us at once. We will bill all charges, fees, applicable taxes and surcharges for each prescribed Service Term, in advance (except for usage-based charges, which will be billed monthly in arrears, and any other charges which we decide to bill in arrears) to your payment method, including, but not limited to:
activation fees; Plan fee; Transfer fees; usage charges; international usage charges; advanced feature charges; premium services/Add-ons, equipment purchases; regulatory recovery fee; Emergency 911 Cost Recovery Fee; 911 fees; Federal Universal Service Fee; federal, state and/or local taxes; disconnection fees; and shipping and handling charges.
The amount of such fees and charges shall be published on our website and may change from time to time. RouteMyNumber may introduce new products and services at special introductory pricing. Introductory pricing may change at RouteMyNumber's discretion. Where required by law, notification of invoices will be sent to you via your email address on file with us. We reserve the right to bill at more frequent intervals if the amount you owe to us at any time exceeds $30. RouteMyNumber bills usage charges in full minute increments that are rounded up to the next full minute unless otherwise set forth in the rate schedules found on our website. RouteMyNumber bills fractional usage charges in full cents that are rounded up.
The above fees are defined as follows:
Installation Fee - This fee covers charges for installing devices or providing “in person” technical support in setting up your account and activating you on our system provided that you request these services.
Plan Fee - This is the basic charge associated with your service. This fee includes the calling charges defined by your plan, the features associated with your plan and basic account services.
Usage Charges - If you exceed the number of calling minutes on your plan, RouteMyNumber will bill you for the minutes you use above your allowance. RouteMyNumber also bills for calls to directory assistance and other information services.
International Usage Charges - These are the fees associated with calls to locations outside of the US and are not included with any plan.
Advanced Features, Add-ons (e.g. Call Router add-on), Premium Services - RouteMyNumber charges additional fees for enhanced features, add-ons, and other added products and services.
Equipment Purchases - You will pay for equipment associated with your RouteMyNumber service with your payment method.
Regulatory Recovery Fee - A regulatory recovery surcharge applies to each phone number. RouteMyNumber uses this fee to pay our regulatory-related fees and expenses, including taxes, number portability charges, and related legal fees.
In the future, RouteMyNumber may provide E911 services in which a Emergency 911 Cost Recovery Fee would applies to each line of service. This fee is used to recover costs directly associated with developing, implementing and maintaining a nationwide E911 in compliance with FCC regulations.
Taxes - RouteMyNumber is required to bill and collect local, state and federal taxes imposed on RouteMyNumber customers by the various taxing authorities. RouteMyNumber passes all taxes it collects on to the appropriate taxing authority.
911 Fees - State and/or local governments may assess fees on RouteMyNumber to pay for emergency services in your community. RouteMyNumber bills and collects 911 fees from its customers and remits such fees to the appropriate authority. Depending on where you live, these fees can vary widely. RouteMyNumber is committed to supporting public safety services and resources in your State. For more information, and to learn more about the fees collected in your community for emergency services, contact your state or local elected official.
Federal Universal Service Fee - a monthly charge that recovers the contributions that RouteMyNumber, as a VoIP provider, must make to the federal Universal Service Fund (USF). This fund supports the telecommunications needs of low-income households, schools, libraries, rural hospitals, and consumers living in high-cost service areas. This fee is applied to Customer's interstate and international charges at the same rate applicable to RouteMyNumber's USF contributions and may be subject to periodic adjustment.
3.2 Billing Disputes. You must notify us in writing within seven (7) days after receiving your statement from your bank or credit card issuer if you dispute any RouteMyNumber charges on that statement or you will be deemed to have waived any right to contest such charges. All notices of disputed charges should be emailed to us by logging into your account at www.routemynumber.com, then select the “Contact Us” link at the top.
3.3 Payment and Collection.
(a) Payment. Your subscription to the Service authorizes us to collect from your payment method. This authorization will remain valid until thirty (30) days after we receive written notice from you terminating our authority to charge your payment method, whereupon we will charge you for the disconnection fee, if applicable, and any other outstanding charges. We may disconnect your Service at any time in our sole and absolute discretion if any charge to your payment method is declined or reversed, your payment method expires and you have not provided us with a valid replacement payment method or in case of any other non-payment of account charges.
(b) Collection. If your Service is disconnected, you will remain fully liable to us for all charges pursuant to this Agreement and any and all costs we incur to collect such amounts, including, without limitation, collection costs and attorney's fees.
(c) Notices. You understand that it is difficult for RouteMyNumber to distinguish between credit and debit cards. You agree to waive your rights under Regulation E to receive ten (10) days advance notice from RouteMyNumber regarding the amount that RouteMyNumber will debit from your account. RouteMyNumber may send you messages about your billing from time to time, but RouteMyNumber is not obligated to do so. RouteMyNumber may change or cease its messages at any time without notice to you.
3.4 Disconnection; Discontinuance of Service. We reserve the right to suspend or discontinue the Service generally, or to disconnect your Service, at any time in our sole and absolute discretion. If we discontinue the Service generally, or disconnect your Service without a stated reason, you will only be responsible for charges accrued through the date of disconnection, including a pro-rated portion of the final Service Term charges. If your Service is disconnected on account of your breach of any provision of this Agreement, you will be responsible for all charges through the end of the current Service Term, including unbilled charges, plus a disconnection fee of $39.99, if applicable, all of which will immediately be due and payable. RouteMyNumber will pursue collection for unpaid amounts on disconnected accounts and may report to credit bureaus.
3.5 Taxes. State and local governments may assess taxes, surcharges and/or fees on your use of RouteMyNumber service. These charges may be a flat fee or a percentage of your RouteMyNumber charges and may change from time to time without notice. These charges are based on the rates applicable to the address you provided to us. You are responsible for all applicable federal, state, provincial, municipal, local or other governmental sales, use, excise, value-added, personal property, public utility 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 payment method as set forth in this Agreement. If you are exempt from payment of such taxes, you must provide us with an original certificate that satisfies applicable legal requirements attesting to tax-exempt status. Tax exemption will only apply from and after the date we receive such certificate.
3.6 Money Back Guarantee; Limitations and Conditions.
(a) We offer a thirty (30) day money back guarantee ("Money Back Guarantee") from the date your Service is activated. The Money Back Guarantee applies only to the first-ordered line per account, not to additional or secondary lines. We will not refund any service, transfer, or set up fees. We will refund the first Service Term, and the shipping charges provided that:
* The Money Back Guarantee period only applies to the initial line ordered on your account, additional lines are excluded;
* you have not exceeded 100 minutes of usage;
* Service is cancelled within the first thirty (30) days following the activation of the Service and activation occurs when you place your order for service;

RouteMyNumber may not be able to refund all applicable taxes. You will be responsible for any charges for international usage, payphone calls to RouteMyNumber toll free numbers and directory assistance. We reserve the right to disconnect or revoke this Money Back Guarantee at any time, without prior notice.
3.7 Payphone Charges. Payphone calls are blocked from our "Toll Free" feature or any toll free feature that we offer in the future. If this changes, we will be entitled to recover from you any charges imposed on us either directly or indirectly in connection with toll free calls made to your number. We may recover these amounts by means of a per-call charge, rounded up to the next cent, or in such other fashion as we deem appropriate for the recovery of these costs. Payphone calls are typically blocked.
3.8 No Refunds for Prepaid Service Plan Customers. Subject to the Money Back Guarantee and applicable law, we will not refund any Service Fees or any other amounts paid in connection with any prepaid Service plans.
4. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY; INDEMNIFICATION; WARRANTIES
