Your acceptance of the Terms of Service indicates your agreement to comply with our Terms of Service, the specific terms of your Service plan (including the plan's duration and applicable early termination fee) and related policies regarding your use of the Services. You agree with and are deemed to have accepted this Agreement upon the earlier of: (a) submission of your order; (b) your accepting the Terms of Service electronically or in the course of installing the Software; (c) your use of the Service; or (d) retention of the Software we provide beyond thirty (30) days following delivery. 

The following terms apply to all Services (as defined below):



  1. Services.
    The term "Service" shall mean any Xchange Telecom Corp. provided service, including, but not limited to, internet service by DSL, T1, DS3, fiber optic and wireless; telephony service provided via POTS, T1, DS3, or VOIP, any service provided under the "CentralOffice" or "Skywire" name, and any other service (collectively, the "Service(s)"). The Service shall also include any software or hardware that we provide you in connection with the Service to which you have subscribed, and includes any sub- or secondary accounts associated with a primary account. "Content" shall mean content provided by Xchange or its third party licensors, providers or suppliers and accessible on the Service, including without limitation images, photographs, animations, video, audio, music, and text, with the exception of content uploaded by and stored on behalf of users. Xchange Web Site(s) mean the sites located at http://www.xchangetele.com; http://www.centraloffice.com; http://www.centraloffice.net/, http://www.skywirenetworks.com/ and any other Xchange affiliated websites, which are comprised of various web pages, tools, information, software, Content, and features operated by Xchange. The Service may utilize transport service provided by your local telephone company. If you change your local telephone company, or move your local telephone service to a wireless or Internet telephone service provider we may in our discretion either immediately terminate your Service or continue to provide Service without local service at existing terms and conditions under the then-current pricing plan applicable to your Service. If your local telephone company provisions transport service to your location utilizing fiber optic technologies, we may in our discretion terminate your Service and no longer make the Service available to your location.
  2. Contact.
    Xchange may contact you from time to time regarding your services or other potential services that may be relevant to you. If you begin but fail to complete the sign up process for the Services, Xchange may contact you in an effort to help you sign up for the Services or another service of Xchange or its affiliates. You hereby authorize Xchange and its affiliates to make such contact, even if you ultimately determine not to sign up for any Xchange or affiliate service.
  3. Term.
    This Agreement shall be effective upon your acceptance of this Agreement, as provided above, and shall continue for twelve (12) months thereafter, based on the term period and the Service plan selected (the "Initial Term"), unless otherwise modified by Xchange. In the event you change Service plans, your monthly rate and term commitment may change (depending on the plan you select); otherwise, the terms of this Agreement will remain in effect unless otherwise provided. After the Initial Term, your Service will continue on a month-to-month basis until terminated by either party as permitted by this Agreement. We reserve the right to terminate the Service (or any part thereof) in the event we cease to offer the Service generally or to your location. If we cease offering the Service or any part thereof (other than as described in Section 1, above), we will give you at least thirty (30) days advance notice. Billings for Service will automatically begin on the date provisioning of your Service is complete ("Service Ready Date") unless you are notified otherwise by Xchange, or your equipment lease provides otherwise. We may, at our election, waive any fees or charges.
  4. Prices.
    Prices are guaranteed for the Initial Term of Service, subject to the provisions of this Section. For any Service offered on a month-to-month basis, we will give you at least thirty (30) calendar days prior notice of a price change in the manner set forth in Section ‎7.e below. Thereafter, your continued use of the Service constitutes your acceptance of the price change. If you change your Service or your Initial Term, you agree to pay the applicable monthly fee that may apply to your new Service or Initial Term arrangement. You agree to pay all charges associated with the Service and rate plan selected, including but not limited to a) applicable taxes, b) surcharges, c) Federal Universal Service Fund, tax and other recovery fees, d) telephone charges, e) activation fees, f) installation fees, g) setup fees, h) equipment charges, i) termination fees, and j) other nonrecurring charges. Notwithstanding the pricing guarantee set forth above, the taxes, fees and other charges detailed in this section a) - d) may vary on a monthly basis; any variation will be reflected in your overall monthly charge. The amounts and what is included in such charges are subject to change. You also agree to pay any additional charges or fees applied to your billing account for any reason, including but not limited to interest and charges due to insufficient credit or insufficient funds. Activation fees, installation fees, setup fees, equipment charges, and other non-recurring charges, if applicable, will be included in your first month’s bill. Monthly recurring charges will be billed one month in advance. Prepaid pricing plans will be billed in advance. Xchange or its agent will bill you directly, or bill your credit card or your local telephone bill (telephone billing available in selected areas only), as you request and as approved by Xchange. PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU ELECT TO BE BILLED FOR YOUR SERVICE ON YOUR XCHANGE PHONE BILL, BY USING THE SERVICES YOU AGREE TO HAVE XCHANGE CHARGES INCLUDED ON YOUR PHONE BILL.
  5. Payment.
    Late Fee and Credit Related Matters. We will invoice you monthly or on a prepaid basis, as applicable. Payment to Xchange is due upon receipt of invoice and shall be made in U.S. currency. A payment received thirty (30) calendar days or more after the invoice date is considered past due. If your charges are billed by your local carrier, the Late Fee will be equal to the late payment charge that the local exchange carrier applies. If your charges are not billed by your local carrier, you agree to pay interest of 1.5% for each month or part of a month (or the maximum interest allowed by law, whichever is less), pursuant to the Heter Iska Kellali on file at Xchange. Xchange may assign unpaid delinquent charges to a collection agency for action. In the event Xchange utilizes a collection agency or takes legal action to recover monies due, you agree to reimburse Xchange for all expenses incurred to recover such monies (including attorney’s fees). We may evaluate your credit history before modifying or providing you Service. In order to establish an account with us and/or obtain or modify Service, we may obtain a report from a credit agency or exchange information with our affiliates in connection with determining your creditworthiness. If you fail to pay your bill, we may submit a negative credit report to a credit reporting agency, which will negatively affect your credit report. You may be given the option to select a prepaid service plan ("Prepaid Service Plan") which will begin on the later of (a) the date of your order, or (b) the date you change to the Prepaid Service Plan. There will be no refunds for Prepaid Service Plans. At the end of any Prepaid Service Plan, you may be given the option to select a new Prepaid Service Plan. If you do not select a new Prepaid Service Plan, your Service will automatically convert to the then-current month-to-month rate. Xchange’s imposition of a late fee does not impact its ability to choose other remedies under this Agreement, including, but not limited to, termination of services.
  6. Refundable Deposit.
    We may require that you provide us with a refundable deposit, which will be specified at the time of your order ("Subscriber Deposit"). We may also require an additional deposit after activation of the Service if you fail to pay any amounts when due. Within ninety (90) days after termination of your Service, we will return your Subscriber Deposit, less any unpaid amounts due on your account, including any amounts owed for unreturned or damaged Equipment. Amounts held on deposit will not accrue interest except as required by law.

If the negotiations do not resolve the dispute within sixty (60) calendar days of the initial written request, and the amount in controversy exceeds five thousand ($5,000.00) dollars or the jurisdictional limit for small claims court in the jurisdiction in which service is provided (whichever is less), the dispute shall be submitted to binding arbitration by a single arbitrator pursuant to the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association, unless it is mutually agreed by the parties to seek a different arbitrator and set of rules. A party may demand such arbitration in accordance with the procedures set out in those rules. Discovery shall be controlled by the arbitrator and shall be permitted to the extent set out in this section. Each party may submit in writing to a party, and that party shall so respond, to a maximum of any combination of twenty-five (25) (none of which may have subparts) of the following: interrogatories, demands to produce documents and requests for admission. Each party is also entitled to take the oral deposition of one (1) individual representing another party. Additional discovery may be permitted upon mutual agreement of the parties. The arbitration hearing shall be commenced within sixty (60) calendar days of the demand for arbitration. The arbitration shall be held in Kings County of the State of New York. The arbitrator shall control the scheduling so as to process the matter expeditiously. The parties may submit written briefs. The arbitrator shall rule on the dispute by issuing a written opinion within thirty (30) calendar days after the close of hearings. The times specified in this section may be changed upon mutual agreement of the parties or by the arbitrator upon a showing of good cause. Judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.
    4. If the negotiations do not resolve the dispute within sixty (60) calendar days of the initial written request, and the amount in controversy does not exceed five thousand ($5,000.00) dollars or the jurisdictional limit for small claims court in the jurisdiction in which service is provided (whichever is less), the dispute may be submitted to small claims court in the jurisdiction in which service is provided for resolution in accordance with its rules and procedures.
    5. Each party shall bear its own costs of these procedures. A party seeking discovery shall reimburse the responding party the costs of production of documents (to include reasonable search time and reproduction costs). The parties shall equally split the fees of the arbitration and the arbitrator.

      5. For purposes of calculating Service Credit, one (1) Day credit of the Service Fee is equal to 1/30.33 of the monthly recurring CentralOffice charge at the time of the outage for the CentralOffice seats adversely affected.
      6. Customer must pay its entire invoice, and shall not setoff any Credit Allowance it would anticipate receiving from Xchange. Customer shall cooperate with Xchange in any service claim investigations.
      7. To receive a Credit Allowance, Customer must be in good financial standing with Xchange and must be compliant with the terms and conditions of Xchange’s Terms of Service. A Customer's failure to comply, including without limitation a failure to pay charges on a timely basis, will invalidate the Availability Guarantee.

  43. Services.
    The Services supplied pursuant to this section consist of the receipt and sending of facsimile communications ("faxes"), the storage of such faxes on an Xchange server, the provision of software to the Customer for access to the faxes, the communication via email or telephone regarding the receipt of the faxes, and any ancillary or subsidiary services provided in connection to these services. Collectively, these services will be referred to as "Fax Services."
    Xchange offers the following classes of Fax Services:
    1. MyFaxMail
    2. FaxMail Pro
  44. Page Limits.
    Your plan will provide you with page limits. This is the amount of incoming and outgoing pages of faxes per month that are included in your plan. A page consists of any one completely transmitted page of any size; provided, however, that if you fail to inform us regarding a mistransmission of a page within 3 days of attempting to send or receive such page, you will be charged for that page as if it was a complete transmission. After using your monthly page limits, you will be charged a per-page overage fee. Most fax pages take less than sixty (60) seconds to transmit. However, for each outbound transmission, the number of pages sent is calculated based on the greater of the actual number of pages or the number of full and partial 60-second increments of transmission or connection time, whether or not the transmission occurs or is completed (such as instances when someone answers the call or transmission is interrupted before completion). For example, a one page fax with a transmission duration of 30 seconds is recognized as one page and a one page fax with a transmission duration of one minute and six seconds is recognized as two pages. Unused inbound or outbound pages are valid in the month issued and expire at the conclusion of each billing cycle. Inbound or outbound unused pages have no cash value. Such pages do not roll over into the next billing cycle , and you will receive no cash refund in the event any unused inbound or outbound pages that remain in your account upon termination or closure of your account.
  45. Storage.
    While your account is active, your plan includes a set amount of storage on the Xchange servers, measured in time. Once a fax is stored for a longer period than the time set by your fax plan, you will be charged a storage fee will shall be assessed per page. To avoid the storage fee, you must delete the copy that is stored on the server. In any case, faxes will be purged from the system as set forth in your plan. To avoid deletion of your faxes, you must save a copy on your own computer before the maximum time for storage has been exceeded. Regardless of your level of service, you acknowledge that Xchange may cease offering this feature or change its practices and/or limitations concerning this feature at any time, including, without limitation, changing the maximum number of days that fax messages will be retained, the maximum number of messages stored at any one time and the maximum storage space allotted on Xchange's servers on your behalf. You further agree that Xchange has no responsibility or liability whatsoever for any failure or malfunction of this feature, whether or not such failure prevents you from utilizing the feature, including but not limited to the storage or deletion of any faxes.
  46. Usage.
    You are given a set amount of monthly usage by your plan. This usage will allow you to fax within the Domestic US (48 states). Any fax sent outside the Domestic US will be charged our international rates per minute, in addition to any set per page usage charge (or deduction from per page limit, as appropriate.)
  47. Security.
    You are responsible for the security of your username and password to login. If you elect email delivery of your faxes, you understand and acknowledge that email is unsecure, and that Xchange bears no responsibility to ensure the security of your faxes. You acknowledge and agree that Xchange has no responsibility or liability whatsoever for your use of this email feature and that Xchange may discontinue or change the terms under which this email feature is provided to you at any time, including, without limitation, changes in the maximum size of emails that may be received, changes in the maximum storage space available for email storage and changes to or elimination of spam filtering or virus scanning. By using this feature, you acknowledge and agree: (i) to assume sole responsibility for the content of any emails transmitted; and (ii) to assume any liability arising from your transmission of, and/or any third party’s receipt of, your emails. Xchange disclaims any liability or responsibility for any failure or malfunction of this feature, whether or not such failure prevents you from utilizing the feature, including but not limited to: an error in the email transmission or receipt process; deletion of or failure to store any emails; non-receipt of emails; broken or non-functional links to emails; any viruses received through this feature. In the event that Xchange, in its sole discretion, determines or suspects that any emails sent or received through this feature constitute, or may give rise to, a violation of any law or regulation or this Agreement, or you are otherwise in breach of any provision of this Agreement, Xchange reserves the right to remove your emails and/or to deactivate links to emails without further notice to you.
  48. Customer Responsibilities.
    You are fully responsible for the contents of your transmissions through the Fax Services. Xchange simply acts as a passive conduit for you to send and receive information of your own choosing. However, Xchange reserves the right to take any action with respect to the Services that Xchange deems necessary or appropriate in its sole discretion, if Xchange believes you or your information may create liability for Xchange, compromise or disrupt the Services for you or other customers, or cause Xchange to lose (in whole or in part) the services of Xchange's ISPs or other suppliers. Your use of the Services is subject to all applicable local, state, national and international laws and regulations (including without limitation those governing account collection, export control, consumer protection, unfair competition, anti-discrimination, securities or false advertising).

You further agree not to transmit or upload any material that encourages conduct that could constitute a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability or otherwise violate any applicable local, state, national or international law or regulation. The Services make use of the Internet for you to send and receive information of your own choosing. As a result, your conduct is subject to Internet regulations, policies and procedures. You agree not to use or reference the Services for chain letters, junk fax or junk mail, spamming or any activity making use of distribution lists to any person who has not given specific permission to be included in such a process or on such list. You further agree not to attempt to gain unauthorized access to other computer systems. You shall not interfere with another customer's use and enjoyment of the Services. You must (a) obtain and pay for all equipment and third-party services (e.g., Internet access and email service) required for you to access and use the Services; (b) maintain the security of your PIN/password and other confidential information relating to your Services account; (c) immediately notify Xchange of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security known to you; and (d) be responsible for all charges resulting from use of the Services, including unauthorized use prior to your notifying Xchange of such use and taking steps to prevent its further occurrence.
  49. Unsolicited Fax Advertisement Policy.
    The transmission of unsolicited fax advertisements is illegal in the United States under the Federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 (TCPA) (http://www.fcc.gov/cgb/consumerfacts/unwantedfaxes.pdf) and in the European Union under the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003, and is also illegal under the laws of a number of other countries, states and provinces. Distribution of unsolicited fax advertisements through the Fax Services is prohibited. Notwithstanding the above, Xchange's distribution of advertising to its customers is not considered unsolicited fax advertising based upon your acceptance of this Agreement. At Xchange's option and without further notice, Xchange may use technologies and procedures, such as filters, that may terminate the transmission of such unsolicited fax advertisements without delivering them.

  51. Service Level Agreement.
    Xchange strives to ensure that its services perform above industry standards.

Therefore, Xchange makes the following commitment in terms of service quality:
    1. We will deliver 80% of faxes error-free. What this means is that out of 100 pages, at least 80 of them will be transmitted without significant degradation such as streaking, mistransmission or incomplete pages.
    2. Our service will be available 99% of the time
    3. If you experience a failure in service such that the above commitments are not met, we will troubleshoot and attempt to fix the problem.
    4. You will receive credit for mistransmissions as long as they are reported within 3 days of the transmission.
    5. You will receive credit only if you assist us in troubleshooting the problems.
    6. If, after 30 days after acknowledging that we confirm a transmission issue, we cannot resolve your mistransmission issues, you may terminate your contract without penalty.
    7. The above is your sole remedy for any failure of the Fax Services.
  52. The Following terms apply to any service using Voice over IP
