All Services are governed by the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
ADDITIONAL OR CONFLICTING TERMS AND CONDITIONS ON ANY DOCUMENT RELATED TO THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THIS AGREEMENT ARE HEREBY REPLACED BY THIS AGREEMENT.
The rates and charges for the Service, which may be found at www.italkbb.com, are effective as of August 15, 2013 and are subject to change. For your most current rates and charges, the most current version of the Agreement, or if you have questions about your services, please visit our website at www.italkbb.com.
Service is offered on a monthly basis beginning on the date Customer activates service and continues for the duration of that calendar month. The Service is automatically renewed unless Customer provides iTalkBB notification of intent to terminate the Service prior to the end of the term as set forth in Section of Billing, Charges and Payment.
The safety and security of customers is of the utmost importance to iTalk. iTalkBB is happy to announce that it now offers 911 Emergency Dialing Services to its customers. However, iTalk's Emergency Dialing Services are VoIP based services, and therefore, are subject to certain limitations and outage factors that are different from traditional 911 accesses. It is important that you read, understand and inform all residents and guests of these important limitations.
CUSTOMER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THE SERVICES DO NOT SUPPORT TRADITIONAL 911 ACCESS TO EMERGENCY SERVICES. WHERE AVAILABLE, ITALKBB SERVICES DO INCLUDE E911 ACCESS TO EMERGENCY SERVICES, AND IN GEOGRAPHICAL AREAS WHERE E911 IS NOT AVAILABLE, ITALKBB SERVICES INCLUDE EMERGENCY DIALING. WHERE E911 IS AVAILABLE, A 911 CALL IS ROUTED DIRECTLY TO 911 DISPATCHERS. WHERE E911 IS NOT AVAILABLE, 911 CALLS ARE ROUTED TO GENERAL EMERGENCY TELEPHONE NUMBERS AND THE CALLER MAY BE REQUIRED TO VERBALLY STATE HIS OR HER ADDRESS. THE CALL IS THEN ROUTED TO THE APPROPRIATE EMERGENCY SERVICE DISPATCHER. ITALKBB ADVISES CUSTOMER TO MAINTAIN OR ACQUIRE AN ALTERNATIVE MEANS OF ACCESSING 911 SERVICES. YOU AGREE TO ADVISE ALL HOUSEHOLD RESIDENTS, GUESTS AND OTHER PERSONS WHO MAY BE PRESENT AT THE PHYSICAL LOCATION WHERE YOU UTILIZE THE SERVICE OF EACH OF THE LIMITATION OF THE ITALKBB EMERGENCY DIALING SERVICE AND OF AN ALTERNATIVE MEANS OF 911 DIALING.
IMPORTANT EMERGENCY DIALING LIMITATIONS: Customer understands and acknowledges that the iTalkBB emergency dialing feature cannot be used in conjunction with an iTalkBB "Virtual Telephone Number". An iTalkBB Virtual Telephone Number is assigned to each customer. The number always includes an area code of 899. These Virtual Telephone Numbers are NOT loaded into national emergency databases and will not function to access emergency services. All customers must purchase a Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) traditional telephone number from iTalkBB in order to access iTalkBB Emergency Services. Customer further acknowledges that iTalkBB Services do not function with outdialing services including home security systems, medical monitoring equipment, fax machines or satellite television systems.
REGISTRATION OF PHYSICAL LOCATION REQUIRED:For each PSTN phone number that you use for the Services, you must provide the physical location where you will be using the Service. IF YOU FAIL TO PROVIDE A PHYSICAL ADDRESS TO ITALK, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO UTILIZE 911 SERVICES AND YOU AGREE TO WAIVE ANY CLAIM OF LIABILTIY AGAINST ITALK. When you move the Equipment (Equipment refers to the iTalkBB Adapter sent to you by iTalk), you must register your new physical location with iTalk. All 911 calls are directed to emergency responders based upon the address you register with iTalk. If you move the Equipment and do not register the new physical location, emergency responders will be dispatched to your previous physical address.
SERVICE OUTAGES; BROADBAND OUTAGES; CONGESTION; AND SERVICE INTERRUPTION:iTalkBB emergency dialing services will not function in the event of a power outage or other interruption to your electricity service until the power supply is fully restored. Following a power disruption, you may need to reset your Equipment before the iTalkBB Service, including the emergency dialing service will function properly. Service outages or suspensions or terminations of service by your broadband provider or ISP will prevent the Service, including the iTalkBB emergency dialing service from functioning. Any interruption in your internet access will prevent you from placing 911 calls during the interruption. Broadband phone service is inherently subject to more network congestion and reduced speed in the routing of 911 calls than traditional 911 dialing over traditional public telephone networks. In the event that your iTalkBB account is suspended or terminated for any reason, your iTalkBB Service, including iTalkBB emergency dialing service will not function.
DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY AND INDEMNIFICATION:iTalkBB does not control how 911 calls are answered or handled by any local emergency response center. iTalkBB disclaims all responsibility for the actions and conduct of any and all national and local emergency response centers. iTalkBB relies entirely upon third parties to route 911 calls to local and national emergency response centers. iTalkBB disclaims any and all liability or responsibility in the event such third party data used to route the call is incorrect or produces an erroneous result. Neither iTalkBB nor its office , directors 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 related to the Services unless such claims arose from iTalk's gross negligence, recklessness or willful misconduct. You, on your own behalf and on behalf of any third party, hereby agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless iTalk, its officers, directors, employees and agents from and against any and all claims, losses, damages, fines, penalties, costs and expenses (including attorneys' fees) relating to the absence, failure or outage of the Service, including the iTalkBB emergency dialing service or access to emergency service personnel.
CANCELLATION OR TERMINATION OF SERVICE: If you cancel your iTalkBB Service or, if iTalkBB terminates your iTalkBB Service for any reason, you will no longer have access to 911 Emergency Dialing Services.
UNDERSTANDING, ACKNOWLEDGEMENT AND ALTERNATIVE 911 SERVICE:You hereby acknowledge your understanding of the limitations of the iTalkBB emergency dialing services described above. In the event that you are not completely comfortable with the limitations of the Service, including the iTalkBB emergency dialing service, you should immediately take action to acquire an alternative means to access 911 services or you should immediately terminate the Services.
You acknowledge that iTalkBB Service may not be compatible with all non-voice communications equipment, including without limitation, home security systems, TTY, medical monitoring equipment, certain versions of TIVo, satellite television systems, PBX, Centrex, other private telephone networks, or computer modems. You waive any claim against iTalkBB for interference with or disruption of these services and equipment, as well as any claim that iTalkBB is responsible for any disruption of your business, if applicable.
While iTalkBB Service may work with a home alarm system, iTalkBB does not recommend it. If for any reason you lose broadband connectivity due to a power outage or problem with your Internet provider, iTalkBB Services will not work and your alarm system will not be able to make an emergency call. For this reason, iTalkBB recommends you keep a basic landline dedicated to your home alarm system and use iTalkBB Services for your other calling needs.
To provide Services, iTalkBB may provide equipment or IP devices to Customer ("Equipment"). All shipments are F.O.B. iTalk's facilities. You shall be the owner of the Equipment, and bear all risk of loss for theft, casualty, or damage to the Equipment. Customer agrees not to change any serial number or Equipment identifier, or to alter any Equipment without the express written consent of iTalk. iTalkBB reserves the right to terminate Customer's service should you tamper with the Equipment and you will be responsible for all charges in the then current service period plus Early Termination and Deactivation Fees.You agree and acknowledge that you will use the Equipment provided to you by and from iTalkBB or its affiliated company in Canada. iTalkBB reserves the right to suspend and cancel your service where you failed to use the Equipment provided by iTalkBB.
iTalkBB offers a thirty (30) day trial period ("Trial Period") to new Customers for their first iTalkBB account. The Trial Period commences on the "Activation Date". The Activation Date is the first to occur of the date that is five (5) days after the date customer signs up for iTalkBB Service or the date Customer places the first call on the iTalkBB Service.If Customer is not satisfied with the Service, Customer may terminate the iTalkBB Service at any time during the Trial Period and obtain a refund of the monthly service fees or activations charges if applicable. The Trial Period refund does not apply to toll usage (charges for calls to any country or region that is not included in an unlimited calling plans selected by Customer) or any local,provincial or federal taxes charged to Customer.

The Shipping and Handling Fee is not refundable, and (b) Customers using 500 or more minutes during the Trial Period will receive a refund of Activation Fee if applicable; the Shipping and Handling fee is not refundable.

Unless Customer purchases iTalkBB Small Business Plan, Customer acknowledges that he or she has purchased residential services under one of iTalk's plan offerings ("Plan") for Customer's normal, personal, residential, non-business and non-professional use. Customer agrees that the Services are not intended for any commercial or governmental activities, including without limitation to home office, business, sales, telecommuting, telemarketing, autodialing, fax broadcast, fax blasting or any other activity that would be inconsistent with residential use. You agree that your use of an iTalkBB residential service plan for any commercial or governmental purpose will obligate you to pay iTalk's higher rate for an iTalkBB Small Business Plan for all time periods, including past time periods, in which you used a residential plan for any commercial or governmental purpose. iTalkBB reserves the right to immediately terminate or modify Customer's service, or offer to transfer Customer to an iTalkBB Small Business Plan or other higher priced calling plan, if iTalkBB determines, in its own discretion, that a residential Customer is using a residential for purposes other than normal residential purposes. In making its determination, iTalkBB may consider a number of factors including, without limitation, usage volumes, volume of calls to high rate premium/special services/personal prefix numbers, whether there is continuous calling or dialing activity, the number of destinations called per month, and other factors indicating unusual calling patterns inconsistent with normal residential use.
Customer agrees to use the Service and Equipment only for lawful purposes. Customer agrees not to use the Services for any communication of any kind which in iTalk's sole discretion would constitute as a criminal offense or otherwise constitute a violation of any local, provincial, federal or international law or encourage conduct which would violate any such law.

Customer understands and agrees 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 Service offering by iTalk. The Service is subject to different regulations than telephone service. This treatment may limit or otherwise affect your rights to redress before Federal or State agencies. iTalkBB Reasonable Residential Use Policy
iTalkBB has developed the following Reasonable Residential Use Policy to describe permissible uses of its service, and to prevent exploitation, fraud, and abuse of its unlimited calling plans and features. This policy is applicable to all iTalkBB residential services.
Reasonable Residential Use
Unless Customer purchases iTalkBB Small Business Plan, Customer acknowledges that he or she has purchased residential services and features under one of iTalk's plan offerings ("Plan") for Customer's personal, residential, non-business and non-professional use. Customer agrees that iTalk's residential service is intended for use by Customer and his or her immediate family. If your Plan allows you to extend the service or feature(s) to one or more mobile, land or VoIP numbers, such use is also considered to be use under the Plan and subject to iTalk's Reasonable Residential Use Policy.
Each of the following is considered to be outside normal residential use:
use by or for others who are not members of Customer's immediate family residing in Customer's home
business use of any type, including home office businesses
operating a customer care, support or call center
resale to others
auto-dialing or fax/voice blasts
all other non-residential uses
Monthly usage which is 30% higher than the average usage by iTalkBB residential customers is considered unusual and excessive usage and is subject to evaluation by iTalk. In addition, usage involving specific numbers called, average call durations, forwarding and transferring, conferencing and unusually short duration calling may, constitute impermissible use(s) of iTalkBB Plan services.Based on these factors, iTalkBB may determine that abnormal, unreasonable or impermissible usage is occurring, and may take appropriate steps including but not limited to suspend or terminate your service described below to enforce this Reasonable Residential Use Policy.
