ADAMS DIGITAL PHONE TERMS OF SERVICE
This Subscription Agreement constitutes the agreement (“Agreement”) between ADAMS DIGITAL PHONE (“we,” “us” or “ADAMS DIGITAL PHONE”) and the user (“you,” “user” or “Customer”) of ADAMS DIGITAL PHONE’s residential and small business communications service and any related products or services (“Service”). This Agreement governs both the Service and any devices, such as a Multimedia Terminal Adapter, Analog Telephone Adapter or any other IP connection device (“Device” or Equipment”), used in conjunction with the Service and it applies to all lines on each ADAMS DIGITAL PHONE account. This Agreement shall be effective as of the date it is signed by ADAMS DIGITAL PHONE (the “Effective Date”).
BY ACTIVATING OR USING THE SERVICE, YOU REPRESENT THAT YOU ARE OF LEGAL AGE TO ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT AND THAT YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND FULLY THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT.
1 EMERGENCY SERVICES-911 DIALING
1.1 911 DIALING. All of our customers have access to either basic 911 or Enhanced 911 (E911) service. With E911 service, when you dial 911, your telephone number and registered address are simultaneously sent to the local emergency center assigned to your location, and emergency operators have access to the information they need to send help and call you back if necessary. Customers in locations where the emergency center is not equipped to receive your telephone number and address have basic 911. With basic 911, the local emergency operator answering the call will not have your call back number or your exact location, so you must be prepared to give them this information. Until you give the operator your phone number, he/she may not be able to call you back or dispatch help if the call is not completed or is not forwarded, is dropped or disconnected, or if you are unable to speak.
You authorize us to disclose your name and address to third-parties involved with providing 911 Dialing to you, including, without limitation, call routers, call centers and local emergency centers.
1.2 Notify All Users. You should inform any 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 ADAMS DIGITAL PHONE 911
Dialing as compared with basic 911 or E911. The documentation that accompanies each Device that you purchase 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 as near as possible to each phone 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 at 1 888-222-0077.
1.3 Location of Service. This Service is provided at a specific permanent address and not available as a nomadic offering. Before you move to another location, you must notify ADAMS DIGITAL PHONE to determine if service can be provided at your new permanent address. Service will only be provided at locations where E911 connectivity is available.
1.4 Service Outages.
a) Service Outages Due to Power Failure or Disruption. In the event of a power or cable outage the service will not work.
b) Service Outages Due to Internet Outage or Suspension or Disconnection of Broadband Service or ISP Service. Service outages or suspensions or disconnections of service by your broadband provider or ISP will prevent all Service,
including 911 Dialing, from functioning.
c) Service Outage Due to Disconnection of Your ADAMS DIGITAL PHONE Account. Service outages due to disconnection of your account will prevent all Service, including 911 Dialing, from functioning.
d) Service Outages Due to ISP or Broadband Provider Blocking of Ports or Other Acts. Your ISP or 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. In that event, provided that you alert us to this situation, we will attempt to work
with you to resolve the issue. During the period that the ports are being blocked or your Service is impeded, and unless and until the blocking or impediment is removed or the blocking or impediment is otherwise resolved, your Service is
impeded, and unless and until the blocking or impediment is removed or the blocking acknowledge that ADAMS DIGITAL PHONE is not responsible for the blocking of ports by your ISP or broadband provider 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.
e) Other Service Outages. If there is a Service outage for any reason, such outage will prevent all Services, 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 AGREEMENT.
Maintaining Telephone Capability During Electrical Outages
Our phone service requires a phone modem (also known as an MTA) that is powered by plugging it into an electrical wall outlet. IF THE MTA LOSES POWER, YOUR TELEPHONE SERVICES WILL NOT WORK, INCLUDING 911 AND ANY HOME, SECURITY OR MEDICAL MONITORING THAT RELIES ON OUR PHONE SERVICE. We offer customers the option to purchase a battery that provides back-up power to an MTA during brief outages. Batteries are not included in our standard equipment rental since many customers prefer to avoid the extra cost of batteries by relying on mobile phones and/or their own backup power sources that can also power other equipment. You are responsible for making your own decision about whether or how to supply back-up power for your phone service.
Cordless telephones require power and will not operate during a power outage even if you have purchased a back-up battery for your MTA. If you purchase a backup battery or other power source, we recommend that you maintain at least one corded telephone to use during power outages.
Available Backup Power Options
Backup batteries rated by the manufacturer to last for different time periods up to 24 hours are available from our MTA supplier ARRIS at http://shop.surfboard.com/arris-telephony-modem-back-up-batteries. Make sure you choose a battery that is compatible with your MTA model. If batteries are not available for your model, you may contact us to request a replacement model that supports battery backup.
These backup batteries do not provide backup power for our Internet access service. You can purchase back-up power solutions from third parties, such as an uninterruptable power supply (UPS), but note that many UPS devices only last for a short time period when used to power multiple devices. Other back-up power alternatives may be available from retailers, such as solar chargers, car chargers or mobile charging stations that may be more useful for extended outages.
Performance and Monitoring of Your Battery
Battery life estimates are not guaranteed. The battery is intended to support short, emergency or other urgent telephone calls. During an extended outage, use phone service sparingly to preserve battery life. Batteries lose capacity with age with a typical lifespan of 6-10 years. Battery performance is likely to degrade if the battery or MTA is stored at temperatures outside of normal room temperature or if it is frequently discharged and charged. You are solely responsible for testing, monitoring, and replacing your batteries on a regular basis. We recommend that you check your battery at least every six months by checking the battery indicator while the MTA is plugged in or by checking your home phone’s functionality while the MTA is unplugged.
We do not guarantee uninterrupted telephone services even to customers that have working backup batteries or other power supplies. Our network may experience other problems that would prevent normal operation of your services even if you supply power to your devices. If you are concerned that the battery life of one ARRIS battery may not be sufficient, you may choose to purchase one or more extra batteries that can be installed in succession during an extended outage after the power in the first battery is exhausted. Batteries should be rotated into the MTA at least once per year. You may need to press a reset button on the MTA to boot from battery power if a new battery installed when AC power is not connected.
1.5 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.
1.6 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 disclaim all responsibility for the conduct of 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 ADAMS DIGITAL PHONE NOR ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AFFILIATES, OR AGENTS 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 AROSE FROM OUR GROSS NEGLIGENCE, RECKLESSNESS OR WILLFUL MISCONDUCT. You shall defend, indemnify, and hold harmless ADAMS DIGITAL PHONE, its officers, directors, employees, affiliates and agents and any other service provider who furnishes services to you in connection with the Service, from any and all claims, losses, damages, fines, penalties, costs and expenses (including, without limitation, attorney’s 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.
1.7 Alternate 911 Arrangements. If you are not comfortable with the limitations of the 911 Dialing service, you should consider having an alternate means of accessing traditional 911 or E911 services or disconnecting the Service.
2.1 Monthly Term. Service is offered on a month to month basis. Subsequent terms of this Agreement automatically renew on a monthly basis unless we are notified by customer.

You will also be responsible for the next full month’s charges in the event that you do not provide the requisite then-day notice of disconnection prior to the expiration of the then-current term.
