VoiceOnyx Corp (“Company”) offers a Voice Over IP (“VoIP”) solution as defined herein that interfaces with various physical devices and software components (whether downloadable or online) (the “Platform”) made available for legitimate business purposes for You to collaborate with Your internal and external constituents. The Platform provides You with the ability to access and use information, data, and other content (“Content”) in a variety of ways, as well as additional services, functionality, and resources made available through the Platform (“Services”).
This Agreement supersedes any prior agreement or proposal, oral or written, and any other communications between You and Company relating to Your use of the Platform or any Content or Services.
PLEASE CAREFULLY READ THIS AGREEMENT. BY ACCESSING OR USING THE PLATFORM, INCLUDING ANY CONTENT OR SERVICES, OR BY CLICKING A BOX THAT STATES THAT YOU ACCEPT OR AGREE TO THESE TERMS, YOU AGREE THAT YOU HAVE READ AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THIS AGREEMENT.
Services further Enumerated.
- “Service” or “Services” means that Company provides You with a Device, to be connected to Your own high speed broadband internet connection, and used in conjunction with Your own interface and telecommunications equipment (including physical cables, network equipment, and internet service provider (“ISP”) provided equipment) together with certain Features, to permit You to utilize Your high speed broadband internet access to obtain voice dialog between individuals using VoIP. In the event Company provides or is involved with the provisioning of Your internet connection, the provisioning of such connection is not covered under this Agreement.
- “Device” means a device supplied by Company that provides voice line access upon connection to Your own high speed broadband internet service. The term “Device” includes the hardware, software, and firmware associated with the supplied device, subject to a nontransferable, revocable license to use the firmware or software in object code form (without making any modification to it) strictly according the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
- “Features” means those particular features made available to You as part of Company’s service plan offerings. The Features to which You are entitled may depend upon the plan you select and the Device you use to access the Service. Company reserves the right to add, remove, or modify Features at its sole discretion without notice to You.
- Other Definitions. Terms used in this Agreement have the definitions given in this Agreement or, if not defined in this Agreement, have their plain English meaning as commonly interpreted in the United States.
- Term. The term of this Agreement will be one (1) month from the date of Your first use of the Platform. The term of this Agreement will thereafter automatically renew for successive renewal periods of one (1) month until You notify Company that You do not wish to renew the Agreement prior to the end of the then-current period.
- Modifications. Company reserves the right, at any time, to modify the Platform and any portion of the Content or Services, with or without notice to You, by making those modifications available on the Platform. Company also reserves the right, at any time, to modify the terms of this Agreement. Company will inform You of the presence of any changes to this Agreement by posting those changes on the Platform or by providing You with notice through the Platform. Any modifications will be effective 30 days following posting on the Platform or delivery of such notice through the Platform, except in the case of a legally required modification which will be effective upon posting. You may terminate this Agreement as set forth below if you object to any such modifications. However, You will be deemed to have agreed to any and all modifications through Your continued use of the Platform, Content, or Services following such notice period.
- Enhanced 911 Service. Company provides access to emergency calling services through Enhanced 911 (E911) service. Your access may differ depending on Your location or the device You are using, and emergency calling services work differently than You may have experienced using traditional wired or wireless telephones. It is strongly recommended that You have an alternative means for placing emergency calls available at all times. 911 service will not function in the event of an internet or power outage or if Your broadband, ISP, or Company Service is terminated. It is possible that network congestion may delay or prevent completion of a 911 call. 911 service may not be available if You are dialing from a number that is not a United States number. You agree to notify any employees, contractors, guests, or persons who may place calls using the Platform or may be present at the physical location where the Services may be used, of the limitations of E911 Service.
- Accounts. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, You may be permitted to access certain Content and Services through the Platform without establishing an account on the Platform. Some Features may require that You register as a user of the Platform (a “User”) and establish a user account on the Platform that is associated with your assigned Device use (an “Account”). Approval of Your request to establish and maintain any Account will be at the sole discretion of Company.
- Administrator Accounts. Upon Your request, Company may provide You with the ability to establish an Account on the Platform to act as an administrator (an “Administrator Account”). If You are permitted to establish an Administrator Account, You may be allowed to create or modify access to the Platform for Your Team members (each, a “Team Account”), and also to modify Your payment information. Any Administrator Account and all Team Accounts (all “Accounts”) will be subject to the terms of this Agreement, including payment of all applicable fees.
- Account IDs. You will be responsible for establishing and maintaining the user identification and password for each of Your Accounts, whether an Administrator Account or Team Account (the “Account ID”). Each Account is for Your personal use and all Account IDs are personal in nature. Each Account ID may be used only by You alone. You may not share or transfer Your Account or Account ID or provide a third party with the right to access your Account or Account ID. You are solely responsible for all use of, and charges incurred through, the Platform and all Content and Services through Your Account, whether that Account is an Administrator Account or a Team Account. In case You maintain an Administrator Account, You are responsible for the use of the Platform though each Team Account established under Your Administrator Account and for compliance by each Team member with the applicable terms of this Agreement. You will ensure the security and confidentiality of Your Account ID and will notify Company immediately if Your Account ID is lost, stolen, or otherwise compromised. You are fully responsible for all liabilities and damages incurred through the use of Your Account or under Your Account ID (whether lawful or unlawful) and any actions taken through Your Account or under Your Account ID will be deemed to have been lawfully completed by You.
- Account Information. In connection with establishing an Account, You will be asked to submit certain information about Yourself and, in the case of an Administrator Account, about Your Team (“Account Information”). You are solely responsible for the Account Information for Your Account and, in the case of an Administrator Account, all Team Accounts. You agree that: (a) all Account Information You provide (including, as applicable, for any members of Your Team) will be accurate, complete, and current; and (b) You will maintain and promptly update all Account Information as necessary to keep it accurate, complete, and current. You may not: (i) select or use an Account ID of another person with the intent to impersonate that person; and (ii) use an Account ID that Company, in its sole discretion, deems offensive. You acknowledge and understand that certain Account Information is used for the purpose of publishing your company’s information to various third-party, external, and public-facing sources to aid in making your phone number and contact number(s) more easily accessible on the internet or otherwise. Any inaccurate Account Information you provide may be published to these third-party sources resulting in incorrect information regarding your company becoming accessible, and said information may be difficult, if not impossible, to remove from the internet. Company implores you to verify the accuracy of your Account Information regularly. Note, however, that there may be times when your Account Information may be overridden in these third-party sources due to inter-carrier requirements or caller identification information existing with a prior carrier. For example, if you do not update your Account Information when porting a number to Company’s Platform, that number may retain the name as it existed with the prior carrier. In contrast, some instances exist whereby the caller identification name must match Your legal company name at least during the time when transferring a number from a prior carrier to Company. Company will use reasonable efforts to publish your Account Information as you wish it to appear once relieved of those external requirements.
- Account Confirmation. You are solely responsible for confirming the set-up and configuration of Your Account (and, in the case of an Administrator Account, for all Team Accounts) in all respects and for making all changes and updates thereto through this Agreement.
- To the Platform. You may access the Platform through the webpages located at www. voiceonyx.com, www.voiceonyxvault.com, or www.voiceonyxpresence.com (these webpages and any other websites operated by Company bearing this Agreement, each a “Site”) or using mobile and online applications provided by and on behalf of Company (each, an “Application,” and each Site and Application forming a part of the “Platform” for purposes of this Agreement). Subject to Your compliance with this Agreement, Company will permit You to access and use the Platform solely for lawful purposes and only in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. You are solely responsible for obtaining and maintaining all non-Company-provided equipment, facilities, and connectivity required to access or use the Platform and each Site or Application, in each case as necessary to meet Your operational and mission requirements based on Your particular circumstances.
- To Applications.

You may install each Application only on computers, smart phones, tablets, or other applicable devices owned or controlled by You and used only for lawful purposes in accordance with this Agreement and any applicable terms and conditions accompanying the Application or otherwise provided to You by Company. Except as expressly set forth in the previous sentence, You are granted no licenses or other rights in or to any Application. You agree not to use, modify, reproduce, perform, display, create derivative works from, republish, post, transmit, participate in the transfer or sale of, distribute, or in any way exploit or utilize any Application other than as expressly permitted in this Agreement or any other agreement You are required to agree to before being given access to any Application.
- To Content. You may be provided with access to a variety of Content through the Platform, including, text, audio, video, photographs, maps, illustrations, graphics, and other data, information and media. Unless otherwise noted on the Platform, all Content available through the Platform (“Platform Content”) is owned by Company and Company’s other third party providers. All Platform Content is provided for informational purposes only to educate you on the use and Features available within the Platform. Company may also provide custom voice recordings or menus that remain Company’s sole property. Subject to Your compliance with this Agreement, You may access the Platform Content solely for Your own personal purposes in connection with Your use of the Platform. You will not, and will not permit any third party to: (a) alter, modify, reproduce, or create derivative works of any Platform Content; (b) distribute, sell, resell, lend, loan, lease, license, sublicense or transfer any Platform Content; or (c) alter, obscure, or remove any copyright, trademark, or any other notices that are provided on or in connection with any Platform Content.

Without limiting the foregoing, Company will not be held liable to You or any other third party for any Content, including Your Content (as defined below), under a Federal Law called the Communications Decency Act or CDA, 47 U.S.C. § 230. Except as set forth in this Agreement, You are granted no licenses or other rights in or to any Platform Content, or any IPR (as defined below) therein or related thereto. If You would like to use any Platform Content in a manner not permitted by this Agreement, please contact Company.
- To Third-Party Services. The Platform may provide You with the choice to access certain Services developed, provided, or maintained by other third party service providers (each, a “Third Party Service”). In addition to the terms of this Agreement, Your access to and use of any Third Party Service is also subject to any other agreement You may agree to before being given access to the Third Party Service (each, a “Third Party Service Agreement”). The terms of any Third Party Service Agreement (which may include payment of additional fees) will apply to the applicable Third Party Services provided under that Third Party Service Agreement in addition to the terms of this Agreement but will not apply to any other Services You may access through the Platform. Except as set forth in this Agreement, the terms of this Agreement and that Third Party Service Agreement. COMPANY TAKES NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY THIRD PARTY SERVICE AND YOUR ACCESS TO AND USE OF ANY THIRD PARTY SERVICE IS SOLELY AS SPECIFIED IN EACH APPLICABLE THIRD PARTY AGREEMENT.
- To Mobile Services. The Services offered through the Platform may include certain messaging and communications services available through Your mobile telephone and other mobile device (“Mobile Services”). By accessing or using any Mobile Services, You consent to receiving messages including Content through any applicable mobile device You specify through the Platform (“Mobile Device”) and to providing Content from Your Mobile Device to other Users through the Platform. As to any Mobile Device You use in connection with any Mobile Services, You acknowledge that You are the authorized account holder for that Mobile Device. All Mobile Services and the messages and Content received, provided, transmitted, exchanged, or otherwise made available through the Mobile Services are subject to each applicable Third Party Service Agreement with the third-party service providers used by Company to deliver those Services.
- Fees. You agree to pay Company all fees applicable to Your access to the Platform and all Content and Services, including local, state, and federal taxes (“Fees”). All Fees will be as indicated through the Platform when you establish your Account or in any notice You receive from Company in connection with Your Account. It is Company’s intention to streamline the billing process for You as much as possible; therefore, Company makes every attempt to “bundle” Fees into one easy-to-understand rate for your convenience. You are entitled to receive a detailed breakdown of the Fees if you so wish by requesting it from Company. All Fees for each Account will be due and payable by You in advance of the initial period and each applicable renewal period under this Agreement. If You have specified credit card, debit card, automated clearing house (“ACH”), online payment account, mobile services account, or other payment method as an applicable payment mechanism under this Agreement, You grant Company the right to charge the applicable payment account You provided to Company for all Fees incurred under this Agreement. All Fees (except as stated in Section 9) will be non-refundable once paid to Company (including upon any termination or suspension of this Agreement). Until paid in full, all past due amounts will bear an additional charge of the lesser of 1½% per month or the maximum amount permitted under applicable law. Company may change any portion of the Fees by posting the changes to the Platform or otherwise providing notice to You of the change. Any such changes will take effect at the beginning of the next period of this Agreement. If Company requires use of collection agencies, attorneys, or courts of law for collection of Your account, You will be responsible for those expenses. You will be responsible for any and all use, sales, telecommunications, and other taxes imposed on the Services provided under this Agreement.

Termination and Effect.
- Termination. This Agreement may be terminated by Company at any time in Company’s sole discretion upon any breach by You of this Agreement that remains uncured five (5) business days after Company delivers written notice to You of such breach; provided, however, that lack of payment by the eighth day of the month when payment is due on the first day of the month affords Company the right to terminate Your service immediately. You may terminate this Agreement at any time upon notice to Company or by deleting Your Account as may be permitted through the Platform.
- Effect. Termination of this Agreement will terminate all of Your Accounts on the Platform. Termination of any Administrator Account will terminate all accounts under that Administrator Account, including all Team members under that Account.

Company may terminate all access to Your Accounts and delete any of Your Content held by Company at any time after termination or expiration of this Agreement.

You hereby agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Company and its officers, directors, shareholders, affiliates, employees, agents, contractors, assigns, Users, customers, providers, licensees, and successors in interest (“Indemnified Parties”) from any and against all claims, losses, liabilities, damages, fees, expenses, and costs (including reasonable attorneys’ fees, court costs, damage awards, and settlement amounts) that result from any and against all claim or allegation against any Indemnified Party arising in any manner from: (1) Your access to or use of the Platform including any Content or Services; (2) the access to or use of the Platform, including any Content or Services, by Your Team Members; (3) Your content or any access to or use thereof; (4) any access to or use of Your Content by any other users; (5) Your collection, use, and disclosure of any User Information; and (6) Your breach of any provision of this Agreement, including any representation or warranty.

COMPANY WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, HOWEVER CAUSED, UNDER ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE OR OTHERWISE), ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH OR OUT OF THE USE OF THE PLATFORM, CONTENT OR SERVICES, EVEN IF COMPANY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY LOSS OF YOUR CONTENT, OPPORTUNITY, REVENUES, PROFITS, OR REPUTATION, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, OR PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE CONTENT, GOODS, OR SERVICES. COMPANY’S TOTAL CUMULATIVE LIABILITY IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT AND ALL CONTENT AND SERVICES PROVIDED UNDER THIS AGREEMENT OR THROUGH THE PLATFORM, WHETHER IN CONTRACT OR TORT OR OTHERWISE, WILL NOT EXCEED $10 OR, IN THE CASE THAT YOU HAVE PAID FEES TO COMPANY TO ACCESS THE PLATFORM OR ANY CONTENT OR SERVICES, THE AMOUNTS PAID BY YOU TO COMPANY IN THE THREE (3) MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING THE EVENTS GIVING RISE TO ANY LIABILITY. YOU AGREE THAT COMPANY WOULD NOT ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT WITHOUT THESE LIMITATIONS OF ITS LIABILITY. IN JURISDICTIONS WHERE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES IS NOT PERMITTED, COMPANY’S LIABILITY IS LIMITED TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
- Best Efforts. The Service is provided on a best efforts basis. The Service may be affected by other events beyond Company’s control, such as power outages, internet service provider or broadband service, maintenance, or signal fluctuations or disruptions. Company will use its best efforts and act in good faith to provide the Service with minimum disruptions to its use or access.
- Disputes. Except as otherwise provided below, the parties will attempt to resolve all disputes, controversies, or claims arising under, out of, or relating to this Agreement, including the formation, validity, binding effect, interpretation, performance, breach or termination, of this Agreement and the arbitrability of the issues submitted to arbitration hereunder and non-contractual claims relating to this Agreement (each, a “Dispute”), in accordance with the procedures set forth in this Section. If any Dispute cannot be resolved through negotiations between the parties within five (5) days of notice from one party to the other of the Dispute, such Dispute will be finally settled through binding arbitration under the arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) then in effect (the “Rules”). Either party may commence the arbitration by delivering a request for arbitration as specified in the Rules. The arbitration will be conducted before a sole neutral arbitrator selected by agreement of the parties. If the parties cannot agree on the appointment of a single arbitrator within thirty (30) days (the “Initial Period”) after either party to this Agreement delivers a request for arbitration, a neutral arbitrator will be selected as provided in the Rules. The arbitration will be conducted exclusively in the English language at a site specified by Company in Orange County, Florida U.S.A. The award of the arbitrator will be the exclusive remedy of the parties for all claims, counterclaims, issues, or accountings presented or pleaded to the arbitrator. The award of the arbitrators will require payment of the costs, fees, and expenses incurred by the prevailing party in any such arbitration by the non-prevailing party. Judgment upon the award may be entered in any court or governmental body having jurisdiction thereof. Any additional costs, fees or expenses incurred in enforcing the award may be charged against the party that resists its enforcement.
- Governing Law and Venue. The interpretation of the rights and obligations of the parties under this Agreement, including, to the extent applicable, any negotiations, arbitrations or other proceedings hereunder, will be governed in all respects exclusively by the laws of the State of Florida U.S.A. as such laws apply to contracts between Florida residents performed entirely within Florida without regard to the conflict of laws provisions thereof. Subject to Section 28 (Disputes), each party will bring any action or proceeding arising from or relating to this Agreement exclusively in a federal court in the District of Florida, U.S.A. or in state court in Orange County, Florida U.S.A., and You irrevocably submit to the personal jurisdiction and venue of any such courts in any such action or proceeding brought in such courts by Company.

Unless otherwise specified in this Agreement, any notices required or allowed under this Agreement will be provided to Company by postal mail to the address for Company listed on the Platform. Company may provide You with any notices required or allowed under this Agreement by sending You an email to any email address You provide to Company in connection with Your Account, provided that in the case of any notice applicable both to You and other Users of the Platform, Company may instead provide such notice by posting on the Platform. Notices provided to Company will be deemed given when actually received by Company. Notice provided to You will be deemed given 24 hours after posting to the Platform or sending via e-mail, unless (as to e-mail) the sending party is notified that the e-mail address is invalid.

Except as expressly set forth in this Agreement, this Agreement may be amended or modified only by a writing signed by both parties. All waivers by Company under this Agreement must be in writing or later acknowledged by Company in writing. Any waiver or failure by Company to enforce any provision of this Agreement on one occasion will not be deemed a waiver by Company of any other provision or of such provision on any other occasion. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be unenforceable, that provision will be removed to the extent necessary to comply with applicable Law, replaced by a provision that most closely approximates the original intent and economic effect of the original to the extent consistent with the applicable Law, and the remaining provisions will remain in full force. The prevailing party in any lawsuit or proceeding arising from or related to this Agreement will be entitled to receive its costs, expert witness fees, and reasonable attorneys’ fees, including costs and fees on appeal. Neither this Agreement nor any rights or obligations of You hereunder may be assigned or transferred by You (in whole or in part and including by sale, merger, consolidation, or other operation of law) without the prior written approval of Company. Any assignment in violation of the foregoing will be null and void. Company may assign this Agreement to any party that assumes Company’s obligations hereunder. The parties hereto are independent parties, not agents, employees, or employers of the other or joint venturers, and neither acquires hereunder any right or ability to bind or enter into any obligation on behalf of the other.
