7. Charges for Services and Taxes, Fees and Surcharges.

In addition to the monthly recurring and usage-based charges, taxes, fees, surcharges, assessments, and other charges apply to all Services, including how those may change in the future. In certain service areas paper bills are available for a monthly charge.
As a convenience to you, Boardroom Breakout may include charges for third party services on your bill. You should always review your bill carefully and contact the Boardroom Breakout if you are unsure about a charge on your bill. Boardroom Breakout also offers the ability to block third party charges from your monthly bill. This service is optional and free of charge, and if you are interested in adding a third-party block to your account, call a Boardroom Breakout representative at the number found at the top right hand corner of your statement to determine if your account is eligible. The block does not apply to Services provided by Boardroom Breakout or its affiliates to which you subscribe.
8. Billing and Payment; Rate Increases. We will bill you the rates you were quoted for Services or those associated with the Services you use or ordered, with increases on notice. All recurring charges are billed one month in advance. Billing at a location will begin upon the earlier of (i) the Signup Date (which may be the date administrative access to certain software-based Services is granted to Customer); or (ii) 30 days after delivery of the applicable facility to the Customer premises (if the delay in connection of the facility is due to Customer or its agent); however, Boardroom Breakout may choose to bill in full monthly increments with no proration for partial service periods when service either starts or ends in the middle of a billing cycle.
We reserve the right to back-bill you for Services used but not previously billed.
Payment in full is due no later than the due date indicated on your bill and we may apply a late fee and interest and other charges (including, but not limited to, collection fees) up to the maximum amount permitted by law. Returned checks, payment by phone, paper bills and other fees due to your choice of payment method or billing receipt may also be subject to fees. You agree to pay costs and fees, including but not limited to attorney fees, we incur to collect an unpaid balance from you.
Boardroom Breakout may require you to authorize payment for Services by credit card or by debiting a bank account, and no additional notice or consent is required before we invoice the credit card or debit the bank account for all amounts due to us for any reason.
9. Credits, Deposits and Advanced Payments. These Terms to provide you Services are subject to credit approval. We may, in our discretion with larger projects, require you to submit a deposit as security for payment of charges or an advanced payment before we establish any Services on your behalf. In the future, an additional deposit may be required if either the amount or number of Services is increased, or your credit rating changes. Simple interest will be paid on the cash deposit for the period it is held by us and will be refunded if satisfactory credit has been established or upon termination of service (if no balance is due). We reserve the right to apply the deposit to any amount due and unpaid but the payment of a deposit in no way relieves you of paying your bills in a timely manner. Regarding advanced payments, any advanced payment will appear as a credit to your first month's bill. In the future, an additional advanced payment, that will be applied to your bill, may be required if you increase your Services with us.
Fixed-Term Agreements. When you purchased your Service(s), you may have been required to commit to a term or a minimum purchase. EITHER YOU OR WE MAY ELECT NOT TO RENEW YOUR SERVICE BY PROVIDING NOTICE TO THE OTHER NO LATER THAN THIRTY (30) DAYS PRIOR TO EXPIRATION OF THE FIXED TERM. IF NEITHER YOU NOR WE DELIVER A TIMELY NOTICE NOT TO RENEW, THE SERVICES WILL RENEW ON A MONTH-TO-MONTH BASIS. IF WE TERMINATE FOR CAUSE PURSUANT TO SECTION 10 BELOW, YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO PAY TO US AS LIQUIDATED DAMAGES AN AMOUNT EQUAL TO 100% OF THE MONTHLY RECURRING CHARGES (“MRCS”) MULTIPLIED BY THE NUMBER OF MONTHS REMAINING IN THE THEN CURRENT TERM. OR IF YOU TERMINATE OR DISCONNECT LESS THAN THE ENTIRETY OF YOUR SERVICES SUCH THAT YOUR ACTUAL USAGE AT A LOCATION FALLS BELOW ANY MINIMUM MONTHLY CHARGE (“MMC”) OR MINIMUM MONTHLY FEE (“MMF”) FOR THAT LOCATION, YOU AGREE TO PAY AN AMOUNT EQUAL TO THE MMC OR MMF FOR EVERY MONTH REMAINING IN THE THEN CURRENT TERM (“LIQUIDATED DAMAGES”).
YOU AGREE THAT IN THE EVENT OF TERMINATION BY YOU, THE ACTUAL DAMAGE TO BOARDROOM BREAKOUT IS DIFFICULT TO ASCERTAIN AND THAT THE EARLY TERMINATION FEE REPRESENTS LIQUIDATED DAMAGES AND NOT A PENALTY AND IS A REASONABLE ESTIMATE OF THE ACTUAL REDUCTION IN THE VALUE FOR OUR SERVICES THAT WE WILL SUSTAIN.
Month-to-Month Agreements. If no length of time is identified on the Service Order or you were not otherwise required to commit to a term, then the term is month-to-month and you or we may terminate at any time by providing notice at least thirty (30) days prior to the effective date of termination. You remain liable for payment of all outstanding charges for all Services you used prior to termination and you will be charged for the full last month of Service with no proration or credit if you terminate Service prior to the last day of your billing cycle.
10. Termination by Us. Provisioning of the Service is subject to the availability of the requisite facilities. We may limit, interrupt, terminate or refuse to provide a Service if: (a) you do not honor any provision of these Terms; (b) you use a Service in a manner that adversely affects other customers or harasses them, our employees, or others; (c) you use Service to engage in fraud or unlawful conduct or are suspected of doing so; (d) you modify your phone or any software residing thereon from the original manufacturer specifications, including for the purpose of accessing non-Boardroom Breakout services; (e) you use Service in a manner that is excessive or unreasonable when compared to the predominant usage patterns of other customers on a similar service plan in your geographic area (and we may also implement charges or change you to the appropriate rate plan consistent with such use); (f) resell any Service; (g) for any other reason set forth in the relevant tariffs and price lists or terms and conditions; (h) you do not pay any amount to us or billed by us on behalf of others, including disputed amounts that Boardroom Breakout determines are valid charges on your bills; (i) facilities or property associated with providing the Services have been condemned or use has been prohibited by the government in any manner; (j) you are insolvent, have made an assignment for the benefit of credits or you have filed or had filed against you a petition for bankruptcy; or (k) we determine in our sole discretion that facilities are not technically or economically feasible. In the event that we suspend or terminate your access to the Service, you will continue to be bound by the Terms that were in effect as of the date of your suspension or termination. We may restore such interrupted or terminated Service, in our sole discretion, following your correction of the violation and payment of any amounts due, including any restoration charge we assess for restoring your Service. You agree that Boardroom Breakout will not be liable to you or to any third party for any such change, suspension, or discontinuance.
11. Personal Identifiers. We may assign telephone numbers, e-mail addresses, IP addresses, and other personal identifiers in connection with the Services. You have no proprietary right to any such identifiers, and we reserve the right to change them upon notice to you. In the event that we allow you to transfer a personal identifier to another party to obtain any Services we provide you, we reserve the right, prior to honoring the request for transfer, to charge a fee for the transfer and to collect any money owed for Services.
12. Disputed Bills. You must review bills in a timely manner. To dispute a bill, you must comply with the dispute resolution provisions in Section 13 and submit your dispute, in writing, within 60 days after the date on the bill. You must pay any undisputed portion while your dispute is investigated. You accept all charges on your bill not disputed within 60 days and must pay those charges.
13. Arbitration Agreement. PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS AND IMPACTS THE WAY THAT YOU AND WE BRING CLAIMS AGAINST EACH OTHER AND HOW THOSE CLAIMS ARE DECIDED.
Dispute Resolution. By utilizing Boardroom Breakout’s Services and agreeing to these Terms, you agree to the following dispute resolution procedures. YOU AND BOARDROOM BREAKOUT AGREE TO WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN A COURT OF GENERAL JURISDICTION AND ANY RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR CONSOLIDATED ACTION REGARDING A DISPUTE AS DEFINED BELOW. SPECIFICALLY, YOU AND BOARDROOM BREAKOUT AGREE TO WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO PURSUE A DISPUTE BY JOINING A DISPUTED CLAIM WITH THE DISPUTED CLAIM OF ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY OR TO ASSERT A DISPUTED CLAIM IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY ON BEHALF OF ANYONE ELSE IN ANY LAWSUIT, ARBITRATION OR OTHER PROCEEDING.
If you have a dispute with Boardroom Breakout, you should notify Boardroom Breakout’s Customer Care department at the number listed on your invoice. If the Customer Care department is unable to resolve your dispute, you must submit your dispute to us in writing by emailing: . You must describe your dispute and provide enough detail to allow us to understand it. You must provide any supporting documentation with your written dispute. If we have a dispute with you, we will send you a written notice to your billing address to attempt to resolve the dispute. You and Boardroom Breakout agree that a dispute is any claim or controversy related in any way to Boardroom Breakout’s Services, including charges for Services, Service Order(s) or pursuant to these Terms or any other agreements, whether the dispute arises in tort, contract, by statute or any other legal theory and whether the dispute arises under this or any prior agreement with us or arises after your Services with Boardroom Breakout are terminated.
If you and Boardroom Breakout are unable to resolve the dispute after 60 days from the date of receipt of the written dispute, you agree that either you or Boardroom Breakout shall resolve the dispute in only one of two possible ways: (1) by seeking relief in small claims court, if appropriate under the applicable court’s rules, in the city or county of the billing address reflected on your bill; or (2) by arbitration. This Section does not prohibit you from submitting any issue you have with Boardroom Breakout to any federal, state, or local governmental agency or public service commission which may be able to seek relief from Boardroom Breakout on your behalf. If the dispute is regarding the charges for Services, you agree that if you do not seek relief in small claims court or by arbitration following the 60 day dispute period, then you will immediately begin paying the disputed amount that Boardroom Breakout determines is valid, plus any charges that were not paid during the 60 day dispute period, or Boardroom Breakout may terminate the Services.
Regarding arbitration, you and Boardroom Breakout specifically agree to finally resolve all disputes not filed in small claims court by arbitration that will be final and binding on both you and Boardroom Breakout, subject to any exceptions required by applicable law. The following provisions shall apply to arbitration:
13.1. Demand. If you want to arbitrate a dispute with Boardroom Breakout after expiration of the 60-day dispute period noted above, you must file a Demand for Arbitration claim with the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). The claim must include (1) the name of each party; (2) the address for each party, including telephone and fax numbers and e-mail addresses, and if applicable, the names, addresses, telephone and fax numbers, and e-mail addresses of any known representatives for each party; (3) a statement setting forth the nature of the claim including the relief sought and the amount involved; (4) if the claimant is requesting an in-person hearing, identify the requested location for the hearing; and (5) any supporting documentation. A copy of the Demand, a copy of this arbitration agreement, any supporting documentation, and proof of payment of the filing fee, such as a copy of the check or money order, should be sent to Boardroom Breakout at . If Boardroom Breakout wants to arbitrate a dispute with you after expiration of the 60-day dispute period noted above, Boardroom Breakout will send a copy of its claim to your billing address.
13.2. Applicable Law. The interpretation and enforceability of the arbitration provisions, and whether a dispute is subject to arbitration, is subject to the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) only and not state law.
13.3. Applicable Rules. Boardroom Breakout and you agree that the arbitration will be conducted by the AAA. The rules governing the arbitration proceeding will be the current Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (“AAA Rules”) from the American Arbitration Association, as modified by these Terms. The AAA rules may be accessed at www.adr.org or can be obtained by calling AA at 1.800.778.7879. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity, and must enforce the same limitations stated in these Terms as a court would. The arbitrator will issue an award decision in writing but will not provide an explanation for the award unless you or Boardroom Breakout requests one. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having judgment thereof.
13.4. Method of Arbitration. If the value of relief sought is $10,000 or less, Boardroom Breakout agrees that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the written documents submitted, by telephone, or in person in the city or county of the billing address reflected on your bill. If your claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA rules. The written documents can be the notice to arbitrate that either of us send to the other regarding arbitration and referenced above.
13.5. Arbitration Costs and Attorney Fees. If you properly file a claim with AAA pursuant to these and AAA’s provisions, and the amount of your dispute does not exceed $10,000, at your request Boardroom Breakout will pay for all AAA filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees (“Arbitration Costs”) and your reasonable attorney’s fees (with reasonable hourly rates and expenses to be determined by the location of the arbitration) (“Attorney Fees”) incurred by you regardless of the decision of the arbitrator, unless your claim is found to be frivolous or improper (as set forth in the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure Rule 11) by the arbitrator. A portion of the payment of Arbitration Costs may be in the form of reimbursement, as you may be required to place a deposit when your notice of arbitration is filed. If your claim is found to be frivolous or improper, you agree to reimburse us for all fees associated with the arbitration paid by Boardroom Breakout on your behalf that you otherwise would be obligated to pay under AAA rules. If your dispute exceeds $10,000 but not $75,000, Boardroom Breakout agrees to pay all the Arbitration Costs and 50% of your Attorney Fees. For disputes of $75,000 or more, the AAA rules regarding Arbitration Costs will apply. However, Boardroom Breakout agrees to pay 50% of the Arbitration Costs, and each party will pay its own Attorney Fees incurred for disputes of $75,000 or more. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if your claim is found to be frivolous or improper (as set forth in the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure Rule 11) by the arbitrator, Boardroom Breakout will have no obligation to pay any of your Attorney Fees. If Boardroom Breakout disputes the reasonableness of any Attorney Fees, you agree that the presiding arbitrator shall determine what is a reasonable fee and his/her decision regarding Attorney Fees will be binding on both you and Boardroom Breakout. In no event shall Boardroom Breakout be entitled to an award of its Attorney Fees.
13.6. Awards. If the arbitrator’s award is in your favor and is greater than the value of Boardroom Breakout’s last settlement offer made to you prior to selection of the arbitrator, Boardroom Breakout will pay you the amount of the arbitrator’s award or $3,000, whichever amount is greater. Boardroom Breakout also will pay your attorney’s reasonable fees, including expenses, or $2,500, whichever amount is greater.
13.7. Injunctive Relief. If you seek declaratory or injunctive relief in the arbitration, the arbitrator may award such relief only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by your individual claim.
13.8. Consolidation. The arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
13.9. Confidentiality. Any arbitration shall remain confidential. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by Boardroom Breakout or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or Boardroom Breakout is entitled. Neither you nor Boardroom Breakout may disclose the existence, content, or result of any arbitration or award, except as may be required by law, or to confirm and enforce an award.
13.10. Exceptions. Nothing in this Section shall prevent Boardroom Breakout from issuing notices, including take-down notices for alleged trademark or copyright infringement pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, or termination of Service pursuant to Boardroom Breakout’s Acceptable Use Policy for your abuse of your internet access Services. Nothing in this Section shall prohibit Boardroom Breakout from filing a lawsuit in a court of general jurisdiction to collect outstanding balances for unpaid Services, or any other type of charge owed on your account, or for the theft of any Services by you. This Section is intended to resolve outstanding disputes between us and not to collect a debt owed by you to Boardroom Breakout.
13.11. Limitation of Liability. This Section is subject to the Limitation of Liability Section in these Terms.
13.12. Limitations Period. Any dispute must be brought by you or Boardroom Breakout within two years after the date the basis for the claim or dispute first arises.
Amendment to Arbitration Provisions. Notwithstanding any provision in these Terms to the contrary, you and Boardroom Breakout agree that if Boardroom Breakout makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to the notice addresses), you may reject any such change by sending Boardroom Breakout written notice within 30 days of the change to the Arbitration Notice Address provided above. By rejecting any such change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this provision.
If the provisions concerning the waiver of the class or consolidated actions, or the provisions regarding mandatory arbitration, are deemed unenforceable or void as a matter of law, you and Boardroom Breakout agree that all claims will be brought in a court of general jurisdiction and not resolved through arbitration. YOU AND BOARDROOM BREAKOUT WAIVE, THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANY RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY WITH RESPECT TO ANY LITIGATION DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING OUT OF, UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS FOR THE SERVICES PROVIDED BY US.
14. Services Provided by Third Parties. The Services may display, include, or make available third-party content (including data, information, applications, and other product services and/or materials) or provide links to third-party websites or services (collectively, “Third Party Materials”).

17. Theft and Fraud. You agree to keep all passwords, Member ID’s, IP addresses, and computer names confidential.

YOU AGREE THAT THE PRICING OF SERVICES REFLECTS THE INTENT OF BOTH YOU AND US TO LIMIT OUR LIABILITY AS PROVIDED HEREIN. THE LIMITATIONS IN THIS SECTION SHALL APPLY EVEN IF YOUR REMEDIES UNDER THESE TERMS FAIL THEIR ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. USE OF THE SERVICES IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK.
18.2. DATA SERVICES. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THE INTERNET IS A VOLATILE ENVIRONMENT AND WE ARE NOT LIABLE FOR CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION STORED ON OR TRAVERSING OUR NETWORK. YOU MUST TAKE ALL APPROPRIATE PRECAUTIONS TO SECURE CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION INCLUDING ENCRYPTING IF YOU DEEM NECESSARY.
18.3. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES. SERVICES ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS-AVAILABLE” BASIS WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO WARRANTIES OF TITLE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, WARRANTY ARISING BY COURSE OF TRADE, COURSE OF DEALING OR COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, ANY WARRANTY THAT THE SERVICES WILL MEET CUSTOMER’S REQUIREMENTS OR ANY WARRANTY REGARDING THE QUALITY, CONTENT, ACCURACY OR VALIDITY OF THE INFORMATION OR DATA RESIDING ON OR PASSING THROUGH OR OVER THE NETWORK. ALL SUCH WARRANTIES ARE HEREBY DISCLAIMED. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, BROADBAND SPEEDS, TRANSMISSION QUALITY, NETWORK SECURITY OR RELIABILITY, AND ACCURACY OF ANY DIRECTORY LISTINGS ARE NOT GUARANTEED. NO ORAL OR WRITTEN ADVICE OR INFORMATION BY BOARDROOM BREAKOUT’S EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, OR CONTRACTORS SHALL CREATE A WARRANTY, AND CUSTOMER MAY NOT RELY ON ANY SUCH INFORMATION.

18.4. Exclusions. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of certain warranties or consequential damages, so some of the exclusions and/or limitation in this Section may not apply to you.
19. Indemnification. You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold Boardroom Breakout and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, co-branders, licensors or other partners and employees harmless from and against any claims, liabilities, losses, damages, judgments, award, costs, and expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of or resulting from content you submit, post, transmit or otherwise make available through the Service, your use of the Service, your connection to the Service, your violation of these Terms, including your violation of any rights of another.

20. Changes to these Terms. We may change these Terms, including any change in any charge or fee or the imposition of a new charge or fee, at any time at our sole discretion if we give you notice of the change. The date these Terms were last updated is set forth at the top of this page. If we make a change to these Terms that is material and you do not wish to accept such material change, you may terminate the affected Service by giving us 30 days’ notice, in which case you will not be subject to an early cancellation fee. You will, however, still be responsible for all charges for Services provided before you terminated the affected Service. A material change is ONLY a change that (a) terminates or substantially reduces the availability of a Service for you or (b) results in the increase of any charge by more than 10% of the monthly access charge for that Service. Material changes in your Service DO NOT include the increase in, or imposition of: (1) any charge required to be collected by any governmental authority, such as taxes or surcharges, or (2) any charge not prohibited by any governmental authority to recoup our expense incurred to comply with a governmental requirement.
If Boardroom Breakout makes future changes to the arbitration provision in that Section (other than a change to the notice addresses), you may reject this change by sending Boardroom Breakout written notice within 30 days of the change to the Arbitration Notice Address. By rejecting the change, you agree that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language existing prior to the change. Your continued use of the Services following the posting of revised Terms means that you accept and agree to the changes.
21. Governing Law; Jurisdiction and Venue.
