Customer agrees to indemnify and hold NewTel harmless, and hereby releases NewTel from any damage, liability, loss, cost or expenses suffered or threatened, arising out of, based upon or relating to any action taken by NewTel in good faith reliance upon any such authorization from Customer, its employees, agents or representatives. If Customer is an individual entering these Terms on behalf of Customer’s company, Customer represents and warrants that Customer has sufficient and appropriate authority to bind such company and is competent to do so.
1.4. The obligation of NewTel to provide the Services to Customer is subject to approval by NewTel of Customer’s credit status. Customer’s execution of these Terms or an Order Form constitutes authorization for NewTel to obtain credit information from any credit bureau or other investigative agency pertaining to the credit and financial condition of Customer. Customer understands that, as a result of this credit review, Customer may be required to submit a cash deposit or guaranty in order to receive the Services. In addition, in the event that NewTel determines, in good faith, that the creditworthiness of Customer has materially deteriorated following execution of these Terms, NewTel reserves the right to require from Customer a cash deposit or such other security as NewTel may reasonably require.
1.5. NewTel may modify these Terms at any time by posting revised Terms on the NewTel Website or otherwise notifying Customer of such modification. Such revised Terms shall be binding upon Customer if Customer continues to use the Services after any such notification. Additionally, NewTel may change pricing for the Services at any time upon notice to Customer.
- Service Term and Renewal. The term with respect to the Services shall begin on the date the Service is available for use by Customer and shall continue for a period thereafter as set forth in the Order Form, unless earlier terminated in accordance with these Terms. The Services will be deemed available for use, and billing will commence, after the underlying facility has been installed at the Customer service address. The Services term shall automatically renew on a month-to-month basis until either party terminates the Service(s) by giving the other party not less than thirty (30) days prior written notice of termination.
- Service Availability and Installation.
3.1. NewTel makes no representation or warranty as to when Services will commence and will use commercially reasonable efforts to initiate the Services as soon as possible. Customer understands and acknowledges that Services initiation is partially dependent upon the actions of third parties not under the control of NewTel. Once installed, NewTel will use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that the Services will be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, except for scheduled preventive maintenance or for unscheduled emergency maintenance. Under no circumstance shall NewTel be liable to Customer or any third party for damages arising from delays in commencement or subsequent operation of the Services, loss of information, numbering or directory listing errors, or loss of business.
3.2. Except for standard Services installation, repair and maintenance provided with the Services, Customer shall be responsible for any time and material charges associated with the dispatch of NewTel personnel, sub-contractors or suppliers to Customer premises necessary to repair Services resulting from a Customer caused service interruption. NewTel may upon prior notice charge customer for any services relating to porting telephone numbers. NewTel shall use all commercially reasonable efforts to notify Customer of any such costs in advance.
- Customer Premises Equipment.
4.1. NewTel reserves the right to deliver the Services using such delivery, technology and/or facilities as it chooses from time to time and Customer acknowledges that the delivery of the Services over certain technologies may require the installation of customer premises equipment, including all NewTel provided hardware to include, without limitation, phones, switches, modems, routers and originally-supplied router parts and materials, provided and owned by NewTel (the “Components”). Customer shall not make any physical modification, or permit third party access to, the Components without prior written consent of NewTel. In the event that the Components are accessed by entities other than NewTel or its agents due to the actions of Customer, Customer shall reimburse NewTel for any costs incurred to return the Components to the proper condition. Additionally should these actions cause loss, damages or liabilities to NewTel, Customer will be solely responsible to compensate NewTel for the loss, damage or liability. Upon termination of the Services, Customer’s right to use the Components will immediately end and Customer shall return the Components within thirty (30) days of such termination. In the event that Customer fails to return such Components to NewTel (or, at NewTel’s option, to permit recovery of the Components by NewTel) in good working order, reasonable wear and tear excepted, Customer shall be responsible for the full replacement cost of the Components and shall pay NewTel all charges associated with the recovery of that equipment. For avoidance of doubt, the foregoing Components conditions do not apply with respect to Components purchased and fully paid for by Customer. All Components provided and owned by NewTel will, at all times, remain the property of NewTel. Customer shall not (a) reverse engineer, disassemble, decompile or otherwise attempt to recreate the Component configurations, or modify, translate, adapt, alter or create derivative works therefrom, (b) reproduce, publish, display, distribute, disclose, or otherwise make available the Component configurations, or any part thereof; (c) use the Components for any purposes other than those explicitly stated herein.

4.2. On some plans, NewTel will make available free or heavily discounted Components at Customer’s request. These discounts are provided with the understanding that Customer will purchase the Services for a minimum period set forth in the Order Form. Should Customer receive free or specially discounted equipment as part of an eligible plan and then (a) cancel or cause to be terminated before the minimum period set forth in the Order Form is complete; or (b) within such minimum period change to a plan that does not offer or include free or discounted equipment, Customer agrees and hereby authorizes the charge of 100% of the price of the equipment in place at the time of the Services termination or modification, for any and all free or discounted equipment. This equipment charge is not eligible for, nor will be, prorated.
4.3. CUSTOMER SHALL DEFEND AND INDEMNIFY NEWTEL FROM ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, ACTIONS, LOSSES, DAMAGES, (INCLUDING REASONABLE ATTORNEYS FEES) ARISING OUT OF THE PURCHASE, POSSESSION, OPERATION, CONDITION, RETURN, USE OR MISUSE OF THE COMPONENTS, EXCLUDING, HOWEVER, ANY OF THE FOREGOING RESULTING SOLELY AND DIRECTLY FROM THE NEGLIGENT OR WILLFUL ACTS OF NEWTEL, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
5.1. Either party may terminate these Terms with notice prior to a renewal of the then-current Services term.

Nothing contained herein shall relieve Customer of its obligations to pay NewTel for all Services provided. Upon a termination of these Terms due to a Customer default, NewTel may, subject to applicable laws and regulations, freely assign or release Customer’s telephone number(s).
5.3. In the event of early termination of these Terms prior to the expiration of any fixed term, Customer shall pay NewTel all charges for Services provided through the effective date of such termination, plus any and all applicable re-rated service costs for previous months services that were rated based on a longer term agreement than was satisfied by the early termination.
5.4. The parties agree that, in the event of a decision or ruling by a regulatory authority at the federal, state or local level, with competent jurisdiction over such matters, that materially affects the rights or obligations of either party arising out of these Terms, the parties will negotiate in good faith to modify these Terms in light of such decision. Should such decision or ruling prohibit NewTel from furnishing the Services, then either party may terminate these Terms with notice to the other party without further liability hereunder, except Customer’s liability to pay for Services provided through the effective date of such termination.
5.5. Customer may terminate these Terms in the event that NewTel is in material breach of its obligations and such breach remains uncured for a period of thirty (30) days from the date that NewTel receives written notice thereof from Customer. In such case, Customer shall not incur any termination liability for the termination of the Services but shall be obligated to pay for Services rendered prior to the effective date of such termination.
- Use of Service.
6.1. Customer shall use the Services in compliance with, and subject to, all applicable government codes, ordinances, laws, rules and regulations, applicable tariff, and any additional documentation corresponding to the Services posted on the NewTel Website, and shall secure, prior to the delivery of the Services, and maintain in full force and effect during the applicable Services term, any and all necessary approvals, consents, rights of way, permits, franchises, licenses or similar approvals from all governmental and other authorities which are necessary or required to be obtained by Customer in connection with the Services.
6.2. Customer shall not (a) use, or attempt to use, the Services for any fraudulent, unlawful, improper, harassing, excessive, harmful, or abusive purpose; or (b) resell or attempt to resell any aspect of the Services without the prior written consent of NewTel, whether for profit or otherwise. If Customer uses the Services as an auto dialer, telemarketer, call center or other similar type of business, then Customer shall do so in strict compliance with all laws and regulations governing such activities. Customer shall indemnify and hold NewTel harmless for any costs incurred by NewTel relating to improper use of the Services, including, but not limited to, any fines imposed upon NewTel by a governmental or regulatory body. If NewTel suspects a violation of this provision, NewTel may: (i) begin legal action; (ii) suspend or terminate the Services immediately and without prior notice; (iii) suspend or terminate service(s) provided to Customer under any other agreement with NewTel; and (iv) cooperate with law enforcement in prosecuting offenders. NewTel may terminate the Services or change Customer’s rate plan at any time if NewTel determines, in NewTel’s sole discretion, that Customer’s use of the Services is excessive, unusually burdensome, or unprofitable to NewTel.
6.3. Customer agrees that all sound files Customer utilizes with the Services have been legally obtained and Customer has the rights to use and distribute such sound files within the Services, including, without limitation, via electronic medium to a remote server for use with voicemail and hold music. Customer takes full responsibility for maintaining its legal rights over it.
6.4. NewTel may cooperate with law enforcement organizations that have lawfully requested pursuant to a valid subpoena or court order (i) trap and traces, pen registers, wire taps and similar call intercept methods, and (ii) information regarding Customer or any end user of Customer and provide such organizations with any information requested, including, but not limited to, names, email addresses, mailing or contact addresses, IP addresses, telephone numbers, call detail records, or call content. Customer agrees to cooperate with NewTel in investigating suspected violations.
6.5. Customer shall bear the risk of loss arising from any unauthorized, unlawful or fraudulent use of the Services unless such fraud resulted from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of NewTel and NewTel retains the right to analyze any and all information at its disposal, including credit surveys, call detail records and any other information to confirm unauthorized use. Customer shall pay for unauthorized or fraudulent use of the Services at NewTel’s highest usage charges applied to network usage and attempted network usage, whether or not a terminating connection was achieved, plus all costs incurred by NewTel to detect, discover, observe, investigate, analyze, examine and locate the party responsible for unauthorized or fraudulent use.
6.6. NewTel will restrict (i) calls to 900, 976, 700 numbers and other “pay-as-you-call” services and (ii) international long distance calling functionality from Customer’s account with respect to the Services ordered and will only allow such functionality upon written request by an authorized representative of Customer. In no event will NewTel be liable for fraudulent calls originating from Customer owned or operated equipment, for claims arising out of equipment provided by third party vendors that may be installed at Customer premises in connection with the Services, or for damages associated with or arising from any service, channels, or equipment, which it does not furnish.
6.7. Customer remains responsible for its own network security and security violation response procedures. While a virtual private network (VPN) or managed network service ordered from NewTel may enhance Customer’s ability to impede unauthorized access to its network and data, and may aid Customer in detecting potential security breaches and network irregularities, Customer understands and acknowledges that no service is guaranteed to ensure Customer’s network security or to prevent security incidents, and that NewTel is not responsible for any unauthorized third party or Customer employee access to Customer’s facilities or data.
- Access to the Internet and Availability of Service. When using VoIP or other Internet-based Services Customer acknowledges Customer must have operational and properly configured access to the Internet and hereby agrees to provide, at Customer’s sole expense, Customer’s own Internet service with a third party provider. Customer further agrees to be responsible for payment of any and all Internet service fees including all equipment necessary to establish and maintain a connection to the Internet as may be required to use the Services. Service availability and level(s) may vary due to conditions beyond the control of NewTel, including the type and state of the Customer’s equipment. The Services are subject to interruption or limitation due to factors including but not limited to: network capacity limitations, installation, repair, modification to the network, restrictions by NewTel’s long-distance providers, NewTel’s efforts to combat fraudulent and/or illegal use, non-payment, or other legitimate business and operational reasons. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Customer represents and warrants that Customer understands VoIP-based services are subject to the vagaries of the Internet. Customer affirms NewTel has no duty under these Terms to provide insurance to Customer’s benefit against any losses caused by interruption of Services, whether caused by disrupted access to the Internet, acts of god, scheduled maintenance windows or other reasons whether reasonably seen or unforeseen.
- Billing and Payment Terms.
8.1. Unless otherwise agreed by NewTel, all flat fee charges shall be applied to Customer’s credit card monthly in advance on the first business day of each month. Additionally, any separate variable charges, such as arising from use of an 800 or 411 service, shall be charged to Customer’s credit card in arrears on the first business day of each month. Customer agrees that all such charges may be made without NewTel obtaining prior authorization from Customer in each instance. If NewTel has agreed to invoice Customer for payment, then all invoices are due and payable within thirty (30) days from the date of invoice. Should Customer fail to pay any undisputed amount when due, Customer shall pay interest on such unpaid amount at the rate of one and a half percent (1.5%) per month, or such lesser amount as is the maximum amount permitted under applicable law, until such sum is paid in full. Customer shall notify NewTel in writing of any charge or amount disputed, in good faith, within fifteen (15) days of Customer’s receipt of the applicable invoice. In no event shall Customer’s notice of a good faith dispute relieve Customer from its obligation to pay, in full, all undisputed charges and amounts. The parties shall work in good faith to promptly resolve any billing dispute initiated pursuant to these Terms. If a dispute is resolved in favor of NewTel, and Customer has not already paid the disputed amount, Customer will pay such amount to NewTel, plus any applicable late fees, on the next billing cycle. If a dispute is resolved in favor of Customer, NewTel will apply a credit in the appropriate amount to Customer’s NewTel account in the next billing cycle, subject to the billing cycle cut-off date. Credits that miss the billing cycle cut-off date will be applied in the next billing cycle. If a dispute arises and NewTel refers this Agreement to an attorney for collection, Customer shall pay all costs of collection, including interest, court costs, fees and reasonable attorney’s fees. Customer shall be charged $35 for each credit card chargeback and bounced check. Customer is responsible for notifying NewTel of any changes to Customer’s credit card information. Additionally, Customer is responsible for notifying NewTel of any change in Customer’s location and any cessation of use of the Services and Customer will continue to be charged fees under these Terms, even if Customer ceases to use the Services due to a change in its location, merger or sale of Customer’s business, or other cause, unless Customer has provided NewTel with prior written notice of such change or cessation of usage.
8.2. If any undisputed invoiced amount remains unpaid on the due date, and such default remains uncured 10 days after, NewTel provides Customer written notice of such default, NewTel may immediately suspend the Services, in whole or in part. Following the issuance of a suspension notice, NewTel may terminate all or any part of the Services without further notice to Customer if all outstanding amounts are not paid on or before the scheduled termination date specified in the suspension notice, generally 15 days after the billing date. Neither suspension nor termination of the Services will relieve Customer of any obligation to pay for Services prior to suspension and/or termination, or for any amounts due for early termination. Additionally, NewTel may suspend Services in the event service charges exceed the amount of any deposit which NewTel may have required or any established credit limit.
8.3. Notwithstanding the cancellation or natural expiration of the Services term, if Customer has accumulated unpaid charges, NewTel may refuse any request for release or other transfer of local and toll-free numbers to a third party, and may reject any request for change in toll-free service to another carrier, without liability to NewTel, until such charges are paid in full to the date of termination of the Services. NewTel reserves the right to re-assign any terminated toll-free or local numbers.
8.4. Customer agrees to pay (i) unless and until Customer provides NewTel with satisfactory evidence of its exemption from such impositions, all applicable federal, state and local taxes, imposed on, or with respect to, the Services and any Components purchased by Customer from NewTel, (ii) all governmental fees and/or other surcharges in effect from time to time including, but not limited to, Universal Service Fund (USF), and E-911, required or permitted by applicable law, rule or regulation, to be charged to Customer, (iii) fees for special features or services requested by Customer, (iv) any originating access charges or fees that are actually charged by the incumbent local exchange carrier to NewTel as a result of the unique configuration of the Services, and (v) all other similar charges in effect from time to time, however designated.
- Indemnification. Each party shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless the other party, its parent, directors, employees, agents and contractors, subsidiaries and affiliates, from and against all third party claims and damages for physical property damage, physical personal injury or wrongful death to the extent such damage or injury arises out of the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the indemnifying party in connection with the provisioning or use of the Services. Customer shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless NewTel its parent, directors, employees, agents and contractors, subsidiaries and affiliates from and against all claims and damages arising or resulting from Customer’s breach of these Terms. The indemnifying party agrees to pay any resulting settlement and damages from such claims, as well as all related costs and fees, including attorneys’ fees; provided that, the indemnified party promptly notifies the indemnifying party in writing upon learning of any such claim and fully cooperates in its investigation and defense. The indemnified party may participate, at its expense, in the defense of such claims.
