1. THE SERVICE
1.0 These Terms and Conditions and the Network Services Order Form constitute the contract between the Customer and Oi! (“agreement”)
1.1 We will supply you with the services in accordance with our conditions and the accompanying signed Service Agreement and fully completed customer requirement form, the combination of which will form a service contract between the parties.
1.2 All details specified on the proposal document, Service Agreement and customer requirements form (CRF) are based on information supplied by you and/or collected during a site survey (remote or onsite), and may be subject to amendment in accordance with Clauses 1.4 to 1.6 below.
1.3 We and/or our subcontractors may conduct surveys to clarify whether the Service, Equipment, Installation Fee or Service Fee require amending.
1.4 Where we determine that amendments are required, we will submit to you a replacement proposal document and Service Agreement reflecting any such changes. If the replacement Service Agreement is agreed by you in writing or by email, the replacement Service Agreement will immediately supersede the original Service Agreement (which will be immediately cancelled). If you do not agree the replacement Service Agreement, both the original Service Agreement and replacement Service Agreement will be cancelled by us 14 days after notification of such amendments.
1.5 Following the completion of the surveys and, if required, the agreeing of the replacement Service Agreement, we will confirm to you when the Service will commence.
1.6 We will use reasonable endeavours to meet any agreed times or dates, but time is not of the essence in respect of those times or dates and you acknowledge that all timeframes are estimates only and that service levels are target service levels only.
1.7 Throughout the provisioning process, we will need to communicate with named member(s) of your staff to arrange access to your premises. Any delays to these requests by you will delay Service Commencement Date and we will not be liable for any such delay.
1.8 To enable us to provide the Installation Service, you will:
1.8. 1 Prepare the Sites and your networks in accordance with our instructions. You are responsible, at your own cost, for the power supply and arranging alternative power supplies if any temporary supply fails. Installing engineers may refuse to install equipment if they perceive a hazard or risk,
1.8.2 Provide us with full access to your Sites and networks and make available such office and technology facilities as may be necessary for us to provide the Service,
1.8.3 Provide a suitable operating environment for the equipment in accordance with the manufacturer’s operating instructions,
1.8.4 Promptly furnish us with such information and documents as we may reasonably require for the proper performance of the Services,
1.8.5 Obtain all third party consents, licences and rights reasonably required in order to allow us or our subcontractor to provide the Service and be responsible for complying with any applicable laws, statutes, regulations and codes of practice, in relation to the Services, and
1.8.6 Put in place adequate security and virus checking procedures in relation to any computer facilities to which you provide us with access.
1.9 All Equipment provided by us will remain our property until paid for in full. Where Equipment is provided as part of a monthly Service Fee or is not paid for in full we reserve the right to request return of the Equipment at your cost. You agree to return such equipment to us on termination of your contract for any reason.
1.10 We reserve the right not to provide the Service to any Site and to withdraw our provisional acceptance of an order for reasons including, but not limited to:
1.10.1 the distance between a Site and our point of presence or its underlying service provider,
1.10.2 if a site survey finds that a site is not suitable for the provision of the Service,
1.10.3 if you do not agree to pay any excess construction charges or any other charges reasonably levied by us in addition to the charges initially proposed.
1.11 We or our nominated subcontractor will install the Service and will perform a series of commissioning tests to ensure that the configured Service is functioning correctly. On successful conclusion of the tests the Service will be deemed to be ready for use and we shall be entitled to invoice you for such Service from this date.
1.12 Provision of the Service may be subject to the completion of a satisfactory site survey(s) by us or our subcontractor. You acknowledge that it will be necessary for us or our subcontractor to visit the installation Site or Sites to conduct such survey(s) and for the purposes of installation.
1.13 Where an appointment is made for us or our subcontractor to visit your Site, including for the purposes of a site survey or for installation and the visit cannot be successfully completed due to:
a) the inability of us or our subcontractor, through no fault of our / their own, to complete the work,
b) The inability of us or our subcontractor to gain access to the site or sites or any part thereof which is necessary for the work.
c) the appointment is broken by you,
d) your failure to prepare the site in accordance with 1.8 or any other preparatory instructions we may have given you, or
e) any other reason where we or our subcontractor are not at fault, we will charge you with our standard aborted visit charge which may be applicable at the time. Rescheduled appointments following an aborted visit will be subject to new lead-times and will be confirmed to you at the time.
1.14 Unless otherwise agreed in writing between the parties you must agree an appointment for installation at a Site within 14 days of notification by us of our preferred installation date. In the event that you do not agree such an appointment, the appointment will be deemed to have been fixed for our preferred installation date unless a revised Required Date is subsequently agreed.
1.15 If your Hosted Telephony Service includes our Ethernet or Assured access then, unless you have ordered an installation of the router, it is your responsibility to install the router at the Site or Sites where this is required and neither we nor our subcontractor shall bear any liability for any delay your failure to install may cause.
1.16 We will maintain your Service to the Service Demarcation Point.
1.17 Where we agree you may use/supply your own router for any part of the Service then you agree that all responsibility and liability for such equipment remains with you. Should we or our subcontractor visit your Site due to a fault which is later found to be caused by equipment not provided by us then we will charge you for such site visit and any additional costs incurred as a direct result. Use of your own router(s) will affect the Demarcation Point of the Service.
1.18 We do not issue any IP address to be used with this Service. Access to and use of this address is controlled by the internet authorities and its use is subject to any rules which they may prescribe. We reserve the right to withdraw or change this address if for any reason the address ceases to be available.
1.19 We will provide you with an internet portal account through which the Service can be controlled online. We shall use reasonable endeavours to maintain (but do not guarantee) access to such account 24 hours in every day on every day of the year and we
shall not be liable for any losses caused by any restrictions in such access.
1.20 If you request and we agree to upgrade your bandwidth of the underlying access then additional charges will apply and we will
advise you of these at the time.
1.21 The Service supports 999/112 public emergency call services and such calls will be routed to the national emergency call handling agents. However these services do not operate in the same way as PSTN fixed line 999/112 public emergency call services and connection to such services may not be possible in the event of a service outage caused by loss of connectivity to the internet for whatever reason. In such circumstances you should use a separate line to make the emergency call. Furthermore it may on occasions not be possible for emergency services personnel to identify your location and telephone number so this information should be stated promptly and clearly by you when making such a call.
1.22 Where we agree that you may use your existing or other new access circuits (including but not limited to broadband, Ethernet, leased line etc) not provided by us then it is your responsibility to ensure such access meets the necessary requirements and functionality. Your failure to meet such requirements and functionality may result in quality and set up issues or may mean the Hosted Telephony Service will not work. Where we do not provide the access, you agree that all responsibility and liability for such access remains with you. Should we or our subcontractor visit your Site due to a fault which is later found to be caused by access not provided by us then we will charge you for such site visit and any additional costs incurred as a direct result. Use of your own access will affect the Demarcation Point of the Service.
1.23 Where we agree that you may use a third party to install the Service then you agree to indemnify us from any direct or indirect claims or losses, financial or otherwise, that you may incur as a result of such installation by a third party. Use of a third party installer will affect the Demarcation Point of the Service.
1.24 At the end of each Working Day, if requested by us, you agree to sign off for the work carried out that day by us or our subcontractor. In the absence of an authorised representative then you agree that our sign off shall have equivalent effect as if you had signed it off. Such sign off shall not constitute full Acceptance as defined in Clause 2.
1.25 Where we provide you with any of the user based features (including but not limited to auto attendant, hunt group, call park, call pickup, call queue etc) and you have not allocated these features to a user then we reserve the right to recover such unallocated features from your account. You can replace these features or add additional features at any time.
2.1 We will notify you when the Installation Service has been completed. You will inspect and test the Service for the purpose of Acceptance (“Acceptance Testing”). During Acceptance Testing, you may notify us by email, telephone or fax of any material non-conformity of the Service.
2.2 To the extent that such non-conformities will have, in our opinion, a material detrimental effect on the Service, we will use our reasonable endeavours to remedy such non-conformities.
2.3 Acceptance shall be on an individual site by site basis and shall take place on the earlier of:
a) your written confirmation to us or our subcontractor that the Acceptance Testing has been completed,
b) where you have not notified us under Clause 2.2, five (5) Working Days from the date of our notification to you that the Installation Service has been completed, or
c) where you have notified us under Clause 2.2 of material non-conformities, five (5) Working Days from the date on which the notified non-conformities were remedied, or immediately upon our demonstration that the notified non-conformities will not, in our opinion, have a detrimental effect on the Service.
2.4 Any additional time incurred by us remedying non-conformities notified by you under Clause 2.2 above shall, at our sole discretion, be reflected in corresponding extensions to the affected timescales in the project plan (if any).

Termination of the Equipment Maintenance cover does not constitute termination of the Service unless specifically requested by you.

In the event that the parties are unable to agree upon the appropriate adjustment the matter shall be referred to an expert for determination.
5.8 Equipment Maintenance is subject to a fair use policy. We may have to curb the usage of the Equipment Maintenance service should you become a persistently high user of the Equipment Maintenance service whereby it can be shown that the causes of the usage are configuration changes initiated by you and not network faults or errors. We will engage with you to ascertain the reason for persistent high usage and work on solutions that will allow the usage to return to a more reasonable level. In cases of sustained high usage due to configuration changes initiated by you then we reserve the right to notify you that the work will become chargeable and then charge you the hourly rate as applicable at the time.

You will be responsible, at your own cost, for (i) reconfiguring any replacement of the Equipment to the same or equivalent configuration as the original (if agreed by the parties, such reconfiguration work may be provided by us as a professional services at our then current standard rates), and (ii) installing such reconfigured replacement in place of the original.
6.4 Any impact on the Service caused by substandard performance or non-availability of the Equipment under Clauses 6.2 or 6.3 shall be excluded from our service level obligations under the Agreement, and such exclusion shall continue for as long as any of the circumstances in Clauses 6.2 or 6.3 continue.

Any such increase in the Service Fee will not exceed the increased cost incurred by us in providing the Service.
7.6 We may require you to pay a deposit and / or require you to procure that your parent company or related company guarantees the payment of any fees under the Agreement. You agree to enter into (and / or procure the execution of) any agreement or deed reasonably required for any such purpose.

7.8 Should any of your site configuration change following site survey and additional engineering time or equipment is required to fulfil the installation, to avoid the need for a rescheduled appointment, you agree to any additional works that may be carried out by our engineer up to a value of £500 without us seeking further confirmation from you.

If you have had a site survey you will pay the full site survey charges.
