IMPORTANT—READ CAREFULLY: These terms and conditions and license agreement (collectively, “Agreement”) is between you, your end users (hereafter “you”, or “Customer”) and Fonality, Inc. (“Fonality”) for the Fonality* software, products (including PBXtra*) and services identified on the Estimate and Order, which may include one or more of the following: computer software (including HUD*), telephone and other equipment, certain telecommunications services, and access to same, media, printed materials, and online or electronic documentation (collectively, the “Product”). These terms and conditions all cover any add-on orders derived from your initial Order. By agreeing to purchase the Product, you acknowledge and represent that you have read, understand, have the legal capacity to, and hereby agree to be legally bound by this Agreement.
Customer’s signature (electronic or physical) of an Estimate is a non-cancellable Order by Customer for the Product. Orders are not binding until accepted by Fonality, in its sole discretion. Once an Order is accepted by Fonality, it may be changed or cancelled ONLY with the written consent of Fonality.
2.1 The full purchase price for the Product is due before shipment unless otherwise agreed in writing by Fonality. Prices may not include any customs duties, sales, use, value added, excise, federal, state, local, public utility, universal service or other similar taxes, freight, activation fees, toll charges, duties or imposts (“Fees”). All such Fees shall be paid by Customer and will be added to any amounts otherwise charged to Customer, and Customer will be liable for and will pay in full all such amounts. If payment is made via credit card, Customer authorizes Fonality to charge the Customer’s credit card for all charges arising from Customer’s purchase of the Product. Customer agrees to notify Fonality of any change to the credit card information including, but not limited to, changes in account number, expiration date or billing address. Otherwise, Customer agrees to pay all amounts due upon receipt of invoice. Balances not paid within 10 days of the due date are subject to a late-payment charge of the greater of 1.5% of the outstanding balance, or the maximum amount allowed by law, whichever is higher. Fonality shall not be responsible for any third party costs incurred by Customer for exceeding credit limit, insufficient funds or other reasons. Notwithstanding any partial payment by Customer, title to goods shipped shall remain with Fonality until the entire price has been paid; and, if Customer defaults in the payment of any charges hereunder when due, Fonality may remove and repossess any and all such Product delivered, terminate access to any remotely hosted services (if applicable), and terminate the software licenses delivered in conjunction with such Product, in addition to any other legal remedies it may have.
2.2 All purchases related to the Product contained in the Order, including but not limited to Fees are non-refundable. Upon receipt of an Order from Customer that is accepted by Fonality, we will begin the process of setting up the Product for you. Therefore, once an Order has been made, and accepted by Fonality, no refund will be given of any activation fees, setup charges, or other fees incurred, regardless of whether or not such Product was kept or used.
2.3 Customer must dispute any charges for the Product in writing within thirty (30) days of the date of the charge by Fonality. After thirty (30) days from the date of the charge, Customer waives any objection and further recourse. Written statements disputing charges must be sent to email@example.com. The existence of a validly filed dispute shall in no way relieve Customer of its obligation to pay all amounts billed by Fonality, including any disputed amounts.
2.4 Credit allowances for an interruption of service in any of Customer’s systems at any time is not required or warranted by Fonality.
All Orders and/or shipments shall be FOB Fonality, and Customer shall bear the cost of delivery and handling. Risk of loss shall transfer to Customer upon delivery of goods to the carrier. Fonality will make every reasonable effort to complete shipment on or before the dates set forth in its Estimate or the Order, as applicable; however, Fonality shall not be liable for delay in performance or inability to perform occasioned by Force Majeure (described herein). If performance is delayed by a Force Majeure event, Fonality shall notify Customer, and time of performance shall be extended for the period of such contingency.
4.1 During the Acceptance Period, Fonality will provide remote installation and configuration support to Customer. This support is limited to telephone and email support necessary to remotely get the system performing to specification at Customer’s location, including the identification, but not resolution, of changes required in the Customer’s network or communications services. Following successful installation, Fonality support is only available to Customers who purchase such support under separate annual Software and Support Agreement(s). Customers not electing to purchase a Software and Support Agreement will be entitled to 2 hours of support during the first 30 calendar days subsequent to receiving the Product (or 35 days from the Fonality ship date, whichever comes first) to aid in phone system installation, but will not be eligible to receive technical support beyond this period.
4.2 If onsite installation and/or training is purchased (see Order or Estimate), Customer shall also be responsible for reasonable and customary travel and travel-related expenses (“T&E costs”). T&E costs are not included in the onsite installation or onsite training fee and shall be charged to Customer’s credit card (or invoiced) upon completion of installation and/or training.

Certain elements of Fonality’s products are delivered as an ongoing service via an Internet connection. Maintenance of a working connection to the Internet is mandatory to have full access to the products and services provided by Fonality.

The occurrence of lost or stolen Equipment does not extinguish Customer’s obligations in this Agreement.
6.8.2. Limited Warranty. Unless provided through a separately purchased maintenance, support or warranty agreement, no warranty is provided by Fonality after the one (1) year limited warranty.

Fonality reserves the right to reject any returned products or components which it determines not to be covered under a pass-through warranty, beyond the limited warranty period, not purchased from Fonality, or with damage resulting from misuse or other actions not covered under the manufacturer’s warranty. Such equipment will be returned to the Customer at the Customer’s expense.

9.4.1 Fonality does not and cannot control the flow or quality of data to or from a network or the Internet. Such flow depends in large part on the performance of Internet services selected by you and provided or controlled by third parties.

Accordingly, Fonality disclaims any and all liability, claims, or damages resulting from or related to call recording and you agree to hold Fonality harmless in such events.
The foregoing disclaimers and limitation of liability will apply to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. The laws of some states/jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or the exclusion or limitation of certain damages. To the extent that those laws apply to this Agreement, the exclusions and limitations set forth above may not apply to you.
