You shall not use the Service for any unlawful purpose whatsoever, including but not limited to the transmission of information or the offering of any service which is unlawful, abusive, harmful, threatening, defamatory, pornographic or which could be considered offensive in any other way, nor for outbound traffic to the PSTN by falsifying the sending address of the transmission using a Sonetel phone number in the caller id (spoofing).

 

You acknowledge that phone numbers assigned to you for free testing will be removed permanently from your account a few days after your activation of the Service unless you add funds to your Sonetel prepaid account and take explicit actions to subscribe the number(s) via one of the Sonetel user interfaces.

You acknowledge and accept that Sonetel may replace any phone number that you subscribe to as part of the Service, with a replacement phone number.

You shall not use the service to make repeated calls to phone numbers connected to automatic answering machines, where a purpose of such call is to receive a share of the revenue on the incoming call from the provider of the phone number called and you will indemnify and hold Sonetel harmless of any direct or indirect costs, damages, losses, fines or penalties that Sonetel may incur resulting from such usage;

 

You shall not use the Service for providing so called Call back services whereby phone numbers purchased from Sonetel are used to receive calls with the only purpose of registering the CLI (Calling line identity) of the caller, without answering the call, with the objective to thereafter initiate an outbound call to the phone number identified by the CLI. Failure to adhere to this rule gives Sonetel the right to charge you $10 per call attempt made to the phone number;

 

You acknowledge that telephone calls to or from the Service must be initiated by humans with the purpose of business communication, and that scripted or otherwise automated calls to or from the Service are prohibited.

 

You acknowledge that Sonetel does not assume any responsibility for access to the emergency service or any other service number, the routing of outgoing calls to the appropriate Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) and for providing location information of the calling party.

 

You acknowledge that Sonetel is a reseller of telecommunications services such as telephone numbers and outbound calling services provided by Voxbone SA/NV and other licensed telecom operators and that Sonetel itself is not a licensed telecom operator.

 

You acknowledge that a service fee applies for porting out phone numbers from Sonetel, and that your right to port out phone numbers only applies if your Sonetel prepaid account holds enough funds to pay for this service fee and any other fees due prior to the port out is completed.

 

You agree to comply with any applicable laws and regulations with regard to the usage of geographical numbers as applicable in the territory to which the numbers belong; and you will indemnify and hold Sonetel harmless of any direct or indirect costs, damages, losses, fines or penalties that Sonetel may incur resulting from the usage of a Number as CLI for outgoing calls or from any violation of the provisions set forth above.

You acknowledge and agree that Sonetel does not provide access to emergency services and that Sonetel’s software and services are not intended for emergency calls of any type. You acknowledge and agree that: (A) it is your responsibility to purchase traditional mobile or fixed-line telephone services that offer access to emergency services, and (B) Sonetel is not a replacement for your primary telephone service.

You shall not use the service for validating your identity with any third party service provider.

 

You shall not make unsolicited calls to other Sonetel users with the purpose of selling services or products.

 

You shall not use the service in a way that creates sudden bursts of inbound or outbound calls.

 

You acknowledge that each outbound call originating from your Sonetel account must be initiated manually by a human. Calls initiated by a predictive dialler or any other form of automation are not permitted.

 

You are fully responsible for any losses caused by any 3rd party gaining unauthorized access to any devices or 3rd party software that you may use for the access to the Service.

 

You are responsible for ensuring that your credentials for access to the Service are stored in such a way that no unauthorized person can gain access to them.

 

You agree to comply with any applicable laws and regulations (such as requirements of information and consent from call participants), with regard to the usage of functions in the Service for recording calls and transcribing calls. Such laws may be the applicable law in the territory of each participant in the call. You also agree to inform any employees, consultants or other users of the Service of these responsibilities and these terms and conditions.

As a main rule, unless otherwise provided under applicable local law, call recording may thus only be used under the explicit consent from each participant in the call. You acknowledge that if laws in several territories may apply, such laws may provide that the stricter territory’s laws shall prevail and be applied for the entire call recording (i.e. requiring explicit consent from each participant in the call). You also understand that participants in the call may have telephone numbers associated to a certain territory while they are actually located in another territory.

Sonetel reserves the right to terminate your access to the Services at any time if Sonetel considers that you are using the Service in an illegal way.

 

You may not use Sonetel’s referral program in order to get commission or sign-up bonuses in case you control both the Sonetel account giving and receiving the referral.

 

You accept to provide proof of your identity, your address and copies of your company registration documents upon request from Sonetel. You hereby accept that failure to provide such documents in a form that is acceptable to Sonetel may lead to Sonetel closing your account and removing all phone numbers from your account. You accept that your sole compensation in such an event is a refund of any unused funds remaining in your Sonetel prepaid account after Sonetel’s deduction of an administrative fee, which shall not exceed $10.

If you use the Sonetel Call back API you may not use it for predictive dialling.

 

If you use the Sonetel Call back API, at least one of the call legs in each call set up must be connected to a party or end point that is controlled by you.

 

If you resell Sonetel’s services to third parties, you may not use Sonetel’s brand name at your web site or in your communication with your customers, nor make any claims of having any relation or partnership with Sonetel, unless this has been explicitly approved in writing by Sonetel.

 

If you resell or sublet phone numbers subscribed from Sonetel to third parties, you are obliged to maintain a current and validated record of the full name and physical address of the ultimate end user (“End User Information”) for each subscribed phone number, with the exception of phone numbers ordered via the Sonetel API that have the freetest flag enabled. If Sonetel receives a request for information from the police or authorities in any country, in relation to a phone number that you subscribe to from Sonetel, Sonetel has the right to request that you share the End User Information with Sonetel. Your failure to provide the End User Information to Sonetel within one business day shall be considered a material breach of this agreement and may lead to account suspension at Sonetel’s sole discretion.

 

You shall ensure that the usage of the number complies with all applicable laws and recommendations from the national authorities such as regulatory authorities or law enforcement authorities. You acknowledge and agree that Sonetel reserves the right to charge you an administrative fee up to 1 500 USD per complaint of abusive or fraudulent usage of a phone number that you subscribe to from Sonetel,  and/or per request of identification received from a competent law enforcement authority.

 

You accept that Sonetel’s free services are subject to fair usage limitations, and that usage beyond normal individual business usage is not allowed, and that Sonetel retains the right to define what is normal business usage.

 

You understand that your use of threats or abusive behaviour or the use of profane language towards Sonetel or Sonetel’s staff may lead to restrictions in your access to Sonetel’s Customer service, and that repeated threats and abusive behaviour or profane language can be classified, at Sonetel’s sole discretion, as a material breach against this agreement.

 

You agree to indemnify and hold Sonetel harmless without limitation of any allegations, claims, direct or indirect costs, damages, losses, fines or penalties that Sonetel may incur as a result of your use of the Service (see further section 9).

  1. Charges and Payment of Fees

Some parts of the Service are available free of charge, while other parts of the Service are charged in accordance with Sonetel’s fees and charges. Sonetel reserves the right to modify its fees and charges and to introduce new charges at any time.

 

All Services that carry a recurring renewal fee, such as phone numbers and plans, can be cancelled by you at any time by disabling the renewal function for that Service. Sonetel will not charge any additional renewal fees for any Service that you have disabled the renewal function for and you will be able to use the Service until its expiry date.

Renewal fees for phone numbers and other services are deducted from your Sonetel Credit account. If, however your Sonetel Credit account does not hold enough money to pay for a renewal, and you have the Sonetel auto-refill function disabled, an amount equal to the cost of the renewal will be charged from one of the Payment methods that you have saved/remembered in conjunction with making an earlier payment.

Service fees that are not renewal fees are always charged from your Sonetel Credit account.

 

In case your Sonetel Credit Account holds insufficient funds at a time when a charge is to be deducted from the account, this may lead to certain or all functionality in the Service being disabled.

You shall upon request from Sonetel provide proof of identity or proof of ownership of credit card used for paying Sonetel.

 

Sonetel’s fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and you shall be responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies or duties.

 

If you believe that a charge or fee is incorrect, you must contact us in writing within 60 days of the invoice date of the invoice containing the amount in question to be eligible to receive an adjustment or credit.

 

  1. Non-Payment and Suspension

In addition to any other rights granted to Sonetel herein, Sonetel reserves the right to suspend or terminate this Agreement and your access to the Service if your account becomes delinquent (falls into arrears). Delinquent invoices (accounts in arrears) are subject to interest of 1.0% per month on any outstanding balance, or the maximum permitted by law, whichever is less, plus all expenses of collection. You will continue to be charged for User licenses during any period of suspension. If you or Sonetel initiates termination of this Agreement, you will be obligated to pay the balance due on your account computed in accordance with the Charges and Payment of Fees section above. You agree that Sonetel may charge such unpaid fees to your credit card or otherwise bill you for such unpaid fees.

 

You acknowledge that if you fail to pay for the Service, even after several reminders, that Sonetel – after a grace period of at least 1 month after Sonetel’s first attempt to deduct charges from your Sonetel prepaid account for the Services – has the right to permanently remove the phone numbers from your account and that your ownership of the numbers thereby is forfeited and that Sonetel has no obligation to compensate you for any resulting direct or indirect loss that this permanent removal of phone numbers may cause you, regardless if the phone numbers were purchased from Sonetel or ported in to Sonetel from another provider.

 

Sonetel may at its sole discretion suspend your account temporarily or permanently if the account is suspected to be used for fraudulent activities or if Sonetel suspects that a payment received may be fraudulent.

Sonetel may request proof of identity or proof of ownership of credit card or payment form used for paying Sonetel, and Sonetel may after receiving such proof decide to remove the suspension and activate your account again if Sonetel finds such proof to be acceptable. If your account remains permanently suspended or if you are unwilling to provide the proof requested, Sonetel shall refund all payments received from you, less any money already consumed for the use of Services.

 

  1. Termination for Cause
