EMERGENCY SERVICES- 911 DIALING
Differences in Availability and Operation of Emergency Dialing Service (“911” or “E911”): Customer acknowledges and understands that the Service does NOT function or connect the same way as traditional copper, fiber or wireline telecommunications support for traditional 911 or E911 access to emergency services.

Customer agrees to inform any employees, representatives and other third persons who may be present at the physical location where Customer utilize the Service as to the non-availability of traditional 911 or E911 dialing from Customer Company Service and Device(s).

Requires Re-Activation if Customer Changes Customer Number (DID): Customer acknowledge and understand that 911 dialing does not function if Customer change Customer phone number, until such later date that such activation has been confirmed to Customer through a confirming email. 911 dialing must be re-activated. Although Customer may have activated 911 dialing with Customer former Company phone number, Customer must Separately activate 911 dialing for any new number.
Change of Physical Location of Equipment: 911 DIALING WILL NOT FUNCTION CORRECTLY IF CUSTOMER MOVES OR RELOCATES COMPANY EQUIPMENT TO A LOCATION OTHER THAN THAT PROVIDED WHEN CUSTOMER REGISTERED FOR SERVICE. IN SUCH EVENT, IN ORDER TO HAVE 911 CALLING ROUTED CORRECTLY, CUSTOMER MUST UPDATE CUSTOMER SERVICE ADDRESS IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE INSTRUCTIONS ON THE Company SERVICE WEBSITE.
Automated Number Identification: At this time in the technical development of E-911 dialing, it may or may not be possible for the Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) and the local emergency personnel to identify Customer phone number when Customer dial 911. E-911 is configured in most instances to send the automated number identification information; however, the phone system routes the traffic to the PSAP and the PSAP itself must be able to receive the information and pass it along properly, and they are not yet always technically capable of doing so. Customer acknowledge and understand that PSAP and emergency personnel may or may not be able to identify Customer phone number in order to call Customer back if the call is unable to be completed, is dropped or disconnected, or if Customer are unable to speak to tell them Customer phone number and/or if the Service is not operational for any reason, including without limitation those listed elsewhere in this Agreement.
Alternative 911 Arrangements: CUSTOMER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THIS SERVICE IS NOT OFFERED AS A PRIMARY LINE OR LIFELINE SERVICE. CUSTOMER SHOULD ALWAYS HAVE AN ALTERNATIVE MEANS OF ACCESSING TRADITIONAL 911 SERVICES.
Power Outage: Customer acknowledges and understands that 911 dialing, like the Service as a whole, does not function in the event of a power failure. Should there be an interruption in the power supply, the Service and 911 dialing WILL NOT function until power is restored. A power failure or disruption may require the Customer to reset or reconfigure equipment, connections or logins, prior to utilizing the Service or 911 dialing.
Broadband Service Outage: Customer acknowledges and understands that service outages or interruptions by Customer broadband provider will prevent ALL Services including 911 dialing from working. Even a brief interruption in Customer broadband internet connection may cause the Service and 911 calling to fail until Customer resets or reconfigures equipment, connections or logins, or until equipment regains connection due to loss of service from your broadband provider. Company is not liable for any dropped calls due to internet service providers outages.
Service Outage Due to Suspension of Customer Account: Customer acknowledges and understands that service outages due to suspension of Customer account as a result of billing issues will prevent ALL Service, including 911 dialing to fail.

Such outages may occur for a variety of reasons, including, but not limited to, those reasons described elsewhere in this Agreement.
