1. EMERGENCY SERVICES - 911 DIALING
- 1.1 911 Dialing.
PhonePower.com uses the same national 911 network that all traditional telephone
companies use. Be aware that 911 Dialing does not function in the event of a power
failure or disruption. If there is an interruption in the power supply, the Service,
including 911 Dialing, will not function until power is restored. Following a power
failure or disruption, you may need to reset or reconfigure the Device prior to
utilizing the Service, including 911 Dialing. Service outages or suspensions or
disconnections of service by your broadband provider or ISP will prevent all Service,
including 911 Dialing, from functioning. Disconnection of your account will prevent
all Service, including 911 Dialing, from functioning. Your ISP, broadband provider
or other third party may intentionally or inadvertently block the ports over which
the Service is provided or otherwise impede the usage of the Service. If you suspect
this has happened to you, you should alert us to this situation and we will work
with you to attempt to resolve the issue. During the period that the ports are being
blocked or your Service is impeded, your Service, including 911 Dialing, may not
function. You acknowledge that PhonePower.com is not responsible for the blocking
of ports by any third party or any other impediment to your usage of the Service,
and any loss of Service, including 911 Dialing, which may result. In the event you
lose service as a result of blocking of ports or any other impediment to your usage
of the Service, you will continue to be responsible for payment of the Service charges
unless and until you disconnect the Service in accordance with this Agreement. If
there is a Service outage for any reason, such outage will prevent all Service,
including 911 Dialing, from functioning. Such outages may occur for a variety of
reasons, including, but not limited to, those reasons described elsewhere in this
You authorize us to disclose your name and address to third-parties involved with
providing 911 Dialing to you, including, by way of illustration but not limitation,
call routers, call centers and local emergency centers.
- 1.2 Registration of Physical Location Required. For each phone line that
you utilize with the Service, you must register the physical location where you
will be using the Service with us. Your initial location will be registered as a
part of subscribing to the Service. It is incumbent on you to confirm the accuracy
of your physical address through your online account and update it if you have any
changes, additions or transfers of phone numbers. When you move the Device to another
location, you must update your location. If you do not update your location, 911
calls you make may be sent to an emergency center near your old address. You may
update a location by logging on to your online account. For purposes of 911 Dialing,
you may only register one location at a time for each phone line.
- 1.3 Alternate 911 Arrangements. If you are not comfortable with the limitations
of the 911 Dialing service, you should make arrangements for an alternate means
of accessing traditional 911 or E911 services or disconnecting the Service. You
understand that additional arrangements should be made to access emergency services.
To access emergency services, you acknowledge and accept that it is your sole responsibility
to purchase, with a third-party separately from PhonePower.com, traditional wireless
or wireline telephone service that offers access to emergency services. You further
recognize that PhonePower.com is not a replacement for your primary telephone service
and you are hereby advised to maintain a traditional wireline or wire-based telephone
service at all times. By agreeing to these terms of service and by your use of the
Device, you acknowledge and accept that the Device may not support or provide emergency
service at all times. You represent and warrant to PhonePower.com that you already
have made additional arrangements with a third party to access emergency services.
- 1.4 Network Congestion. Reduced Speed for Routing or Answering 911 Dialing
Calls. There may be a greater possibility of network congestion and/or reduced speed
in the routing of a 911 Dialing call made utilizing the Service as compared to traditional
911 dialing over traditional public telephone networks.
- 1.5 Disclaimer of Liability and Indemnification. We do not have any control
over whether, or the manner in which, calls using our 911 Dialing service are answered
or addressed by any local emergency response center. We expressly disclaim any and
all responsibility for the conduct of such local emergency response centers and
the national emergency calling center. We rely on third parties to assist us in
routing 911 Dialing calls to local emergency response centers and to a national
emergency calling center. We disclaim any and all liability or responsibility in
the event such third party data used to route calls is incorrect or yields an erroneous
result. Neither PhonePower.com nor any of its officers, directors, members 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 relating to our 911 Dialing
service unless such claims or causes of action arise from our gross negligence,
recklessness or willful misconduct. You shall defend, indemnify, and hold harmless
PhonePower.com, its officers, directors, members, employees, affiliates and agents
and any other service provider who furnishes services to you in connection the Service,
from any and all claims, losses, damages, fines, penalties, costs and expenses (including,
without limitation, attorneys fees) by, or on behalf of, you or any third party
relating to the absence, failure or outage of the Service, including 911 Dialing,
incorrectly routed 911 Dialing calls, and/or the inability of any user of the Service
to be able to use 911 Dialing or access emergency service personnel.
- 1.6 Notify All Users. You should inform all household residents, guests and
other third persons who may be present at the physical location where you utilize
the Service of the important differences in and limitations of 911 Dialing as compared
with basic 911 or E911. The documentation that accompanies each Device will include
a sticker concerning the potential non-availability of basic 911 or E911 (the "911
Sticker"). It is your responsibility, in accordance with the instructions that accompany
each Device, to place the 911 Sticker on each Device that you use with the Service.
If you did not receive a 911 Sticker with your Device, or you require additional
911 Stickers, please contact our customer care department.
2. SERVICE. PhonePower.com will provide you with digital
phone service, subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein (the "Service").

customers. In addition to regular fees set forth in the Pricing Schedule, you agree
to pay all other charges, including but not limited to network usage, applicable
taxes, fees and surcharges, including charges imposed against PhonePower.com by

be reflected in your monthly charge. The current Regulatory Recovery Fee is one
dollar and 98 cents ($1.98) for all clients. E911 Recovery Fee is ninety-nine cents
($0.99) for all clients in the US. PhonePower.com collects a Federal, State and
Local Services (FSLS) Recovery fee for most voice services. This fee is a percentage

federal, regional and local agencies. The current rate is 11.64%, and is subject
to change without notice. When possible, PhonePower.com will break out such charges
on the monthly invoice.
- 4.1 Taxes and Fees on Free Services. Any plan that comes with free service
will be assessed applicable taxes, surcharges, and fees periodically, based on the
details of the plan selected. These fees will be calculated based on the standard
price for the service. Services are subject to suspension and termination if balances
are not paid in a timely manner per Section 4 of PhonePower.com's Terms of Service.
5. PAYMENT, LATE FEES AND OTHER CHARGES. There is
no money back guarantee for any Services unless specifically written in a special
one time promotion. There are no pro-rated refunds for unused time. All services
will be charged via automatic credit card withdrawal. Unless otherwise stated in
the Pricing Schedule, PhonePower.com will invoice and charge Subscribers monthly.
Subscribers are responsible for paying monthly subscription fees while Services
are suspended due to non-payment. In the event that an account is terminated for
any reason with an outstanding balance, PhonePower.com will continue to electronically
charge the credit card on file for the outstanding balance until all balances are
fully resolved. All disconnected accounts and all accounts suspended for non-payment
are subject to a fifteen dollar ($15.00) reconnection fee. Any requests for a change
in telephone number are subject to a fifteen dollar ($15.00) change fee. Subscribers

the charge. Any account which goes into collection status will be transferred to
a collection agency and incur a twenty-five dollar ($25.00) processing fee and all
other applicable fees and charges. Subscribers must pay a twenty-five dollar ($25.00)
service charge on disputed credit cards and credit card chargebacks. Past due accounts
will accrue a monthly charge of one and one-half percent (1.5%) of the past due
balance or one dollar ($1.00), whichever is greater.
You are responsible for all charges attributable to your account incurred with respect
to the Services. You agree to notify PhonePower.com immediately, in writing or by
calling the PhonePower.com customer care line at (888)607-6937, if you become aware

for all usage charges attributable to your account, even if incurred as the result
of fraudulent or unauthorized use by third parties, until you report the theft or
fraudulent use of the Services. You are solely responsible for securing all passwords

unauthorized use or fraudulent use of Services. You agree to save, defend, indemnify
and hold PhonePower.com harmless from all claims, costs, liabilities and damages
arising out of such fraudulent use.
- 5.1 Long Distance. Unlike most telephone service providers, PhonePower.com
provides all local and long distance minutes within the continental US as a bundle
within your package. Actual long distance minutes are measured but not charged as
long as the client remains below their specific plan’s usage thresholds.
- 5.2 Minutes Of Use Per Month. Unless otherwise noted, all standard plans include 5,000 minutes of use (inbound and outbound) per month. If a line exceeds 5,000 minutes per month, from your bill date, PhonePower.com reserves the right to notify the client and bill for excess minutes at $0.02 per minute.
- 5.3 International Calling. International calling is enabled by default. Customers
may enable or disable it at anytime by logging into their My Account page. All International
calls are billed at their respective international rates which are updated on the
first Tuesday of each month. Any and all call charges are rounded to the nearest
whole penny. Each customer account is given a credit limit for international calls.
If an international calling balance exceeds the credit limit prior to their next
bill date, the account will be charged the balance immediately. Failure to pay will
result in suspension of service. All international calls are subject to an FCC-mandated
17.9% Universal Service Fund tax. This rate changes quarterly based on the information
located at the FCC Website.
- 5.4 Free International Calling. All PhonePower.com
plans that include more than 500 minutes receive
60 minutes of free international calling to qualifying destinations every monthly
bill cycle. 500 and Metered Rate plans do not receive any Free International Minutes.
Premium International plans include 1200 minutes of free international calling to
qualifying destinations each month. Details of qualifying destinations can be found
using the International Phone Number and Rate Lookup tool, located on PhonePower.com's
International Page. These
rates and qualifying destinations are subject to change on the 1st Tuesday of each
month. This tool is the final arbiter of which phone numbers qualify for Free International
Minutes. After the allotted minutes of qualifying calls have been made each month,
standard billing will commence using the listed rates for each destination.
- 5.5 Directory Assistance and Operator Services. Directory Assistance is charged
at $0.99 per call and $0.10 per minute after two minutes. Directory Assistance is

call. Operator calling is disabled by default on all new phone lines, but may be
activated using the My Account Dialing Options.

minutes automatically when they are enabled. All forwarded calls count against standard
minute usage caps. Before activating these features, consider this usage and whether
it will affect your usage thresholds.

service plan. Toll-Free numbers cost $5 per month plus $0.04 per minute, billed

an additional one-cent ($0.01) per call for all calls that are 6 seconds or less
above the 20% limit. Subscriber acknowledges that calls that surpass the call duration
threshold and are charged accordingly, as defined above, are due and owing to PhonePower.com.
These charges are non-negotiable and Subscriber waives the right to dispute these
- 5.11 Unprovisioned 911 Calls. For each billing cycle, if a Subscriber places
one or more 911 calls but does not have a valid 911 address on file with PhonePower.com,
PhonePower.com shall charge $75 for each call placed. These charges are non-negotiable
and Subscriber waives the right to dispute these valid charges.

lease the Subscriber either a new or used ATA (Phone Adapter), combination ATA and
router, or other equipment for using the Service. All used equipment is provided
on as-is basis and you agree to hold PhonePower.com harmless for any defective equipment.

Subscriber or PhonePower.com, Subscriber must return to PhonePower.com all leased

or directly from PhonePower.com is owned by the customer and is exempt from the
hardware return policy.
- 6.1 Subscriber Supplied Equipment. PhonePower.com provides the option for
Subscribers to supply their own ATA (Phone Adapter). If a Subscriber supplies their
own ATA, the Subscriber assumes the risk of service incompatibility. Incompatible
Subscriber ATAs or other Subscriber equipment shall not relieve Subscribers from
any of their obligations under this Agreement while troubleshooting defective or
incompatible equipment even if Subscriber's Service is down during such periods
of troubleshooting. The current list of equipment that is compatible and approved
for use with Phone Power's service can be found at www.phonepower.com/hardware.aspx. PhonePower.com reserves
the right to add or remove equipment to this list at any time. PhonePower.com reserves

with PhonePower.com's service. Any device used with PhonePower.com's service must
not be locked or currently provisioned to any other provider and you must have the
admin password for said device. Any device received from another VoIP provider will
most likely NOT work due to this restriction.

Equipment. Should a Subscriber who has supplied their own hardware wish to instead
utilize PhonePower.com's leased equipment, this option is available by contacting
our Support Department. Subscriber must authorize PhonePower.com to charge their

current shipping rates for new customers. This hardware is provided on a free-lease
basis, subject to the terms and conditions described in Section 6.0 of this Agreement.

representative has the ability to determine if a device is in need of replacement.
If a device is determined to have malfunctioned due to manufacturer defect, a free
replacement will be provided at PhonePower.com's expense. If a device is determined
to have malfunctioned for any other reason, including but not limited to incorrect
power supply, customer negligence, and damage from house wiring, Subscriber must
pay a $49.95 damaged device fee. After paying the damaged device fee, a Subscriber

credentials. PhonePower.com will continue to offer normal support for all auto-provisioning
devices, including PhonePower.com supplied phone adapters, softphones, zippyphones,
BYOD devices that use PhonePower.com’s auto provisioning system, etc. If a Subscriber
is unable to configure their device(s) appropriately, SIP Credentials must be disabled
before Technical Support will be provided. Subscribers using SIP Credentials have
a limit of 4 registrations and 2 concurrent calls. PhonePower.com makes no assertions
regarding which devices may be properly configured for use on the PhonePower.com
network and any account may be disabled at any time if, in PhonePower.com's belief,
Subscriber's device is causing issues on or with the PhonePower.com network.
7. TERM. This Agreement is effective upon Subscriber's
acceptance as provided above and shall continue until terminated by Subscriber or
PhonePower.com pursuant to this Agreement.
- 7.1 Monthly Subscribers. Each Monthly Subscriber is on automatically renewing
monthly terms billed on the anniversary of their service commencement.
- 7.2 Prepay Subscribers. A Prepay Subscriber pays upfront for a specified
term ("Service Term"), including initial taxes and fees. The length of the Service
Term is determined by the service package selected by the Subscriber during the
sign-up or renewal process. If the Service Term is longer than twelve (12) months,
additional taxes and fees will be charged after the initial twelve (12) months have
passed. Following the initial Service Term, a Prepay Subscriber will automatically
become a Monthly Subscriber.
- 7.3 Contract Subscribers. A Contract Subscriber is on either a twelve (12)
month term or twenty-four (24) month term ("Contract Term") beginning on the day
such Subscriber accepts the terms of this Agreement as provided above. The length
of the Contract Term is determined by the service package selected by the Subscriber
during the sign-up or renewal process. PhonePower.com provides a 30-day grace period
during which penalties will not be assessed for terminating a new contract. Any
Contract Subscriber who wishes to change or cancel their service plan during their
Contract Term will be assessed a Contract Termination Fee of $99 or the remainder
of your contract amount, whichever is less. Following the initial Contract
Term, a Contract Subscriber will automatically become a Monthly Subscriber.
8. TERMINATION BY SUBSCRIBER. Subscriber may terminate
this Agreement at any time for any reason by providing PhonePower.com with a thirty
(30) day written notice in the form of a valid written termination request and paying
all fees and other charges accrued or otherwise payable under the terms of this
Agreement. Initial charges, including first month service and shipping and handling
charges are non-refundable immediately upon submission of an order. Such thirty
(30) day period begins on the date on which PhonePower.com receives Subscriber's
valid written termination request. A Monthly Subscriber's termination will be effective
on the later of (a) the end of last day of the calendar month during which such
thirty (30) day period ends (e.g., a valid written termination request received
by PhonePower.com any time during January will result in termination effective at
the end of February) or (b) the end of last day of the calendar month requested
by the Monthly Subscriber. A Contract Subscriber's termination, if received by PhonePower.com
at least thirty (30) days prior to the end of their Contract Term, will be effective
at the end of such Contract Term, unless such Contract Subscriber requests an earlier
date. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this section 8, if PhonePower.com
receives a written termination request from a Subscriber, PhonePower.com may, in
its sole discretion, terminate this Agreement on a date earlier than the date otherwise
prescribed by this section 8. If this Agreement is terminated prior to the end of
a Contract Subscriber's Contract Term, such Contract Subscriber must pay, in addition
to all fees and other charges accrued or otherwise payable under the terms of this
Agreement, an early termination fee in the amount of ninety-nine dollars($99.00)
("Early Termination Fee") or the remainder of the contract amount, whichever is
less. In the event a Contract Subscriber terminates this Agreement prior
to the end of their Contract Term because of a service-related problem not caused
by the Subscriber that PhonePower.com has failed to cure after what PhonePower.com
determines in its sole discretion to be a reasonable amount of time based on the
circumstances, the Subscriber is entitled to a waiver of the Early Termination Fee.
For such waiver to apply, the reason for the waiver stated above must have occurred
before termination and the Subscriber must report such reason for termination to
PhonePower.com in the Subscriber's valid written termination request. PhonePower.com
must in turn be given the opportunity to resolve the problem and the Subscriber
must be willing and able to troubleshoot with PhonePower.com. PhonePower.com does
not monitor Subscriber accounts for activity, and absence of activity or cancellation
of a Subscriber's Internet service will never constitute a termination request.
A written termination request is valid only if it includes your VOIP phone number,
main username, date you wish the service to be cancelled and is submitted using
one of the following approved methods:
- Navigating to http://www.phonepower.com/cancel
and submitting the form as directed.
- Via fax to: (818) 301-7465
- Via mail to: PhonePower.com

16. DISPUTE RESOLUTION WITH PHONEPOWER.COM BY BINDING ARBITRATION.
PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY AS IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS. Most customer
concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer’s satisfaction by contacting
PhonePower.com customer care at (888)607-6937. In the unlikely event that PhonePower.com’s
customer care department is unable to resolve a complaint you may have to your satisfaction,
both parties agree to resolve such disputes through binding arbitration, for claims
of $5,000 and greater, or small claims court, in the event the claim is less than
$5,000, instead of in courts of general jurisdiction. Arbitration is more informal
than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge
or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very
limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that
a court can award. Any arbitration under this Agreement will take place on an individual
basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. For any non-frivolous
claim that does not exceed $75,000, PhonePower.com agrees to pay all costs of the
arbitration, but in no event shall PhonePower.com be responsible or costs incurred
in bringing an action in small claims court, unless directed otherwise by the court.
In arbitration you are entitled to recover attorneys’ fees from PhonePower.com to
at least the same extent as you would be in court. Further, under certain circumstances
(as explained below), PhonePower.com will pay you more than the amount of the arbitrator’s
award and will pay your attorney (if any) his or her reasonable attorneys’ fees
if the arbitrator awards you an amount that is greater than what PhonePower.com
has offered you to settle the dispute.
17. CHOICE OF LAW.
- 16.1 Arbitration Agreement.
- (a) PhonePower.com and you agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between you
and PhonePower.com of $5,000 and greater. All claims less than $5,000 shall be addressed
in small claims court. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted.
It includes, but is not limited to:
- claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us,
whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other
- claims that arose before this or any prior Agreement (including, but not limited
to, claims relating to advertising);
- claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which
you are not a member of a certified class; and
- claims that may arise after the termination of this Agreement.
References to “PhonePower.com”, “you,” and “us” include our respective subsidiaries,
affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns,
as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of services under
this or prior Agreements between us. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party
may bring an individual action in small claims court. This arbitration agreement
does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or
local agencies. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on
your behalf. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND PHONEPOWER.COM
ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY AND TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
This Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal
Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. This
arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement.
- (b) A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other a written
notice of the dispute by certified mail ("Notice"). The Notice to PhonePower.com
should be addressed to: PhonePower.com 20847 Sherman Way Winnetka, CA 91306 (“Notice
Address”). The Notice must (1) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute;
and (2) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). If PhonePower.com and you
do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within thirty (30) days after the
Notice is received, you or PhonePower.com may commence an arbitration proceeding.
During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by PhonePower.com
or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines
the amount, if any, to which you or PhonePower.com is entitled. You may download
or copy a form Notice and a form to initiate arbitration from http://www.adr.org/si.asp?id=6376.
- (c) After PhonePower.com receives notice at the Notice Address that you have commenced
arbitration, it will promptly reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee,
unless your claim is for greater than $75,000. (The filing fee currently is $125
for claims under $10,000, but is subject to change by the arbitration provider.
If you are unable to pay this fee, PhonePower.com will pay it directly upon receiving
a written request at the Notice Address.) The arbitration will be governed by the
Commercial Arbitration Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer
Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association
(“AAA”), as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The
AAA Rules are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879,
or by writing to the Notice Address. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this
agreement. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating
to the scope and enforceability of the arbitration provision are for the court to
decide. Unless PhonePower.com and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings
will take place in the county (or parish) of your billing address. If your claim
is for $10,000 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will
be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through
a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules.
If your claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the
AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator
shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings
and conclusions on which the award is based. Except as otherwise provided for herein,
PhonePower.com will pay all AAA filing, administration and arbitrator fees for any
arbitration initiated in accordance with the notice requirements above. If, however,
the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought
in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the
standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment
of all such fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In such case, you agree to reimburse
PhonePower.com for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your
obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. In addition, if you initiate an arbitration
in which you seek more than $75,000 in damages, the payment of these fees will be
governed by the AAA rules.
- (d) If, after a finding in your favor in any respect on the merits of your claim,
the arbitrator issues you an award that is greater than the value of PhonePower.com’s
last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected, then Phone
If PhonePower.com did not make a written offer to settle the dispute before an arbitrator
was selected, you and your attorney will be entitled to receive the alternative
payment and the attorney premium, respectively, if the arbitrator awards you any
relief on the merits. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to
the payment and reimbursement of fees, expenses, and the alternative payment and
the attorney premium at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either
party made within fourteen (14) days of the arbitrator's ruling on the merits.
- pay you the amount of the award; and
- pay your attorney, if any, the amount of attorneys' fees, and reimburse any expenses
(including expert witness fees and costs) that your attorney reasonably accrues
for investigating, preparing, and pursuing your claim in arbitration (“the attorney
- (e) The right to attorneys’ fees and expenses discussed in paragraph (d) supplements
any right to attorneys’ fees and expenses you may have under applicable law. Thus,
if you would be entitled to a larger amount under the applicable law, this provision
does not preclude the arbitrator from awarding you that amount. However, you may
not recover duplicative awards of attorneys’ fees or costs. Although under some
laws PhonePower.com may have a right to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses
if it prevails in an arbitration, PhonePower.com agrees that it will not seek such
- (f) The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the
individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief
warranted by that party’s individual claim. YOU AND PHONEPOWER.COM AGREE THAT EACH
MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND
NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
Further, unless both you and PhonePower.com agree otherwise, the arbitrator may
not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over
any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is
found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall
be null and void.
- (g) Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that
if PhonePower.com makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than
a change to the Notice Address) during the period of time that you are receiving
Services, you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within 30
days of the change to the Arbitration Notice Address provided above. By rejecting
any future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between
us in accordance with the language of this provision.
You and PhonePower.com agree that
the substantive laws of the state of your billing address except to the extent such
law is preempted for inconsistent with Federal law, will be applied to govern, construe
and enforce all of the rights and duties of the parties arising from or relating
in any way to the subject matter of this Agreement. In the event of a dispute between
us, the law of the state of your billing address at the time the dispute is commenced,
whether in litigation or arbitration, shall govern except to the extent that such
law is preempted by or inconsistent with applicable Federal law. To the fullest
extent permitted by law, you and PhonePower.com agree that regardless of any statute
or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to
use of the Service or this Agreement must be filed within one (1) year after such
claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred.
PhonePower.com's failure at any time
to insist upon strict compliance with any of the provisions of this Agreement in
any instance shall not be construed to be a waiver of such terms in the future.
If any provision of this Agreement is determined to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable,
the validity, legality, and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall not
in any way be affected or impaired thereby, and the unenforceable portion shall
be construed as nearly as possible to reflect the original intentions of the parties.
The foregoing does not apply to the prohibition against class or representative
actions that is part of the arbitration clause; if that provision is found to be
unenforceable, the arbitration clause (but only the arbitration clause) shall be
null and void.
19. THINGS BEYOND PhonePower.com'S CONTROL.
