In those instances when you may provide Advanced Stream with credit card or other ordering information via the web, Advanced Stream protects and secures this information by employing commercially customary web-based security and encryption protocols, examples of which include Secure Socket Layer (SSL) and Secure Electronic Transaction (SET). On those sites where you voluntarily offer any feedback, data, answers, questions, comments, suggestions, ideas or the like, Advanced Stream will treat that portion of the information as non-confidential and non-proprietary and, except as otherwise expressed in this privacy statement, Advanced Stream assumes no obligation to protect such information from disclosure.

Advanced Stream requires all Users to comply with U.S. copyright and related laws. Accordingly, Users may not store any material or content on, disseminate or make available for dissemination any material or content over, the Service (or any part of the Service) in any manner that constitutes an infringement of third-party intellectual property rights, including rights granted by U.S. copyright law.

However, owners of copyrighted works who in good faith believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law and resides on the Service or is made available as part of the Service may report alleged infringements by sending Advanced Stream a notification of claimed infringement that satisfies the requirements of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) to the address listed below.

Upon receipt of a satisfactory notice, Advanced Stream will respond expeditiously to remove or disable the allegedly infringing work or disable access to it, and to notify the affected User of the Service of the removal or disabling of access.

A User who receives a notification of alleged infringement from Advanced Stream as described above, and believes in good faith that the alleged infringing works have been removed or blocked by mistake or misidentification, may send a counter-notification that complies with the DMCA to Advanced Stream at the address listed below.

Upon receipt of a satisfactory counter-notice, Advanced Stream will promptly provide a copy of the counter notification to the person who sent the original notification of claimed infringement and will follow the DMCA’s procedures with respect to a received counter notification. Consistent with the requirements of the U.S. Copyright Act, if the copyright owner does not bring a lawsuit in district court within 14 days, Advanced Stream will restore the material to its location on its network.

IV.         Violation of Agreement and AUP

Advanced Stream in its sole discretion, will determine what actions will be taken in response to a violation on a case-by-case basis. Advanced Stream may suspend, limit or terminate the Service of any User without notice if Advanced Stream determines that the User (or anyone accessing the User’s Service) has violated the Agreement or AUP. The Service of a User who engages in severe or repeat violations of this AUP will be terminated immediately. In addition, Advanced Stream may, if circumstances warrant (i) institute legal action; and/or (ii) cooperate with law enforcement authorities in bringing legal proceedings against violators.

Advanced Stream shall not be liable to User or to any third party for any damages, losses, costs or expenses of any nature caused by or arising out of the exercise of Advanced Stream’s rights under this AUP or any actions taken to enforce its terms, including but not limited to suspension or termination of the User’s Service.

Although Advanced Stream has no obligation to monitor the Services and/or the Network, Advanced Stream reserves the right to monitor bandwidth usage to operate the Service; to identify violations of the AUP; and/or to protect the Network and Users.

Violations of this AUP, notices pursuant to the DMCA, and any abuse of the Service may be reported to the following address: abuse@advancedstream.com

Advanced Stream may investigate suspected violations of this AUP, including the gathering of information from any Users involved or affected and the complaining party, if any, and examine material stored on servers and the Network.

Upon termination of the Service, Advanced Stream is authorized to delete any files, programs and data associated with the User’s account.

Advanced Stream’s Bandwidth and Network Management Policy 

Advanced Stream is designed for typical usage by typical residential and commercial users of broadband internet access services. Bandwidth is a limited, shared resource among Advanced Stream’s customers. Activity resulting in excessive or sustained bandwidth consumption may burden the network and such usage may be restricted. By using the network and the service, the User agrees to be bound by this Policy.

Advanced Stream strives to provide Users the best experience when using the internet and may use tools and techniques to deliver the service, and ensure compliance with this Policy and the Acceptable Use Policy. These tools and techniques are dynamic, like the network and its usage, and can and do change frequently. For example, these network management activities may include (i) identifying spam and preventing its delivery to User e-mail accounts, (ii) detecting malicious Internet traffic and preventing the distribution of viruses or other harmful code or content, (iii) limiting speeds during periods of extended congestion, (iv) requiring an upgrade or purchase of a different Internet service and (v) using other tools or techniques that Advanced Stream may be required to implement in order to meet its goal of delivering the best broadband Internet experience to all Users.

Users must comply with the current bandwidth, data throughput, file storage and other limitations on the Service. Users must ensure their activity does not improperly restrict, inhibit, or degrade any other user’s use of the Service, nor represent (in the sole but reasonable judgment of Advanced Stream) an unusually large burden on the network itself. In addition, users must ensure that their activity does not improperly restrict, inhibit, disrupt, degrade or impede Advanced Stream’s ability to deliver the Service and monitor the Services, backbone, network nodes, and/or other network services.

Advanced Stream does not discriminate against or prevent Users of its service from sending and receiving the lawful content of their choice; running lawful applications and using lawful services of their choice; or connecting their choice of legal devices, provided that such applications and services do not harm the network or the provision of broadband Internet access service, facilitate theft of service, or harm other users of the service. Similarly, Advanced Stream does not impair or degrade particular content, applications, services or non-harmful devices so as to render them effectively unusable, subject to the policies and procedures outlined herein.

The use of certain network management tools and techniques to conserve bandwidth may cause some Users to notice slower Internet performance, such as longer download and upload times or slower responses while surfing the Internet or playing games. The effects of network management typically will be noticeable only for a brief period of time, if at all. The network management tools and techniques employed by Advanced Stream do not and will not target specific usages or applications (such as peer-to-peer) and instead focus in a content-neutral manner on bandwidth usage in real time, with the goal of providing reasonable and equitable access to the network for all similarly situated customers. In other words, to the extent that the use of network management practices may affect the performance or other characteristics of Internet service, they are designed to affect all similarly situated customers equally.

Excessive use means bandwidth or data usage that is significantly higher than typical usage for which our network is designed. Excessive Users consume so much data that their usage could negatively impact the Service provided to other customers. In order to ensure an optimized Internet experience for all Users, data guidelines have been assigned to all Internet services, and are subject to change

Internet usage above the designated package cap may incur incremental charges to the User.

Advanced Stream collects data on User traffic pattern usage through the use of traffic management software, and reserves the right to conduct tests to improve network security, to enhance the performance of our network, and to determine whether to make available new service offerings. These technical tests are performed almost continuously and without notice.

Residential services are designed for personal use of the Internet and do not provide the type of security, upstream performance and total downstream throughput capability typically associated with commercial use. You may not run a server in connection with Advanced Stream’s residential services, nor may you provide network services to others via Advanced Stream’s residential services. Examples of prohibited uses include, but are not limited to, running servers for mail (pop3 & smtp), http, https, FTP, IRC, DHCP and multi-user interactive forums.

Commercial services are intended only for business and commercial, non-residential usages.

If Advanced Stream in its sole but reasonable discretion determines that User has exceeded the Excessive Use threshold or is using the Service in a manner significantly uncharacteristic of a typical User of the service to which User has subscribed (residential or commercial), Advanced Stream reserves the right to (a) adjust, suspend, limit or terminate Service at any time and without notice; or require the User to upgrade his service level or pay additional fees in accordance with Advanced Stream’s then-current, applicable rates and charges for such service; or (c) use any technology to be chosen by Advanced Stream at its sole discretion to limit the user’s service for purposes of conserving bandwidth.

If you have any concerns or questions regarding this AUP, please contact Advanced Stream.

  1. Customer Proprietary Network Information.

In the normal course of providing services to its users and customers, Company collects and maintains certain customer proprietary network information (“CPNI”) typical to the industry.  CPNI includes the types of telecommunications and interconnected VoIP services Customer currently purchases or subscribes to, how Customer uses those services (for example, Customer’s calling records), and billing information related to those services.  Customer’s M2Ngage telephone number, name, and address do not constitute CPNI.  Company does not sell, trade, or otherwise share Customer’s CPNI with anyone outside of Company and those parties authorized to represent Company to offer Company’s services or to perform functions on Company’s behalf related to our services, except as the law may require or Customer may authorize.  Federal law generally permits Company to use CPNI in its provision of the telecommunications and interconnected VoIP services Customer purchases or subscribes to, including billing and collections for those services.  Company may also use or disclose Customer CPNI for legal or regulatory reasons such as to respond to a court order, to investigate fraud, to protect Company’s rights or property, to protect against the unlawful use of Company services, or to protect other users.

Customer may elect to prohibit Company’s use of Customer’s CPNI to market services other than services of the same type that Customer already purchases from Company by providing Company with Customer’s “opt-out” notice within thirty (30) calendar days of Customer’s Voice Service commencement by sending an email to VoIPSupport@m2ngage2.com stating that Customer opts out of marketing uses of its CPNI, and including the Customer name and its M2Ngage phone number(s).  Please type “CPNI Opt-Out” in the subject line.  If Customer fails to do so within such timeframe, Customer will be deemed to have given Company consent to use Customer’s CPNI to markets other than services of the same type that Customer already purchases from Company.  Customer may change its election at any time by providing notice to Company at VoIPSupport@m2ngage2.com.  Restricting Company’s use of Customer CPNI will not affect Company’s provision of any service, nor will it necessarily eliminate all types of Company marketing.

  1. REGULATORY FEES.

In addition to the payment terms contained in the Terms of Service, Company may charge Customer the following regulatory fees:

  1. Federal and State Universal Service Fee. Company is required to make contributions to the Federal and certain state Universal Service Funds (USF), which provide support to promote access to telecommunications services at reasonable rates for those living in rural and high-cost areas, income-eligible consumers, rural health care facilities, and schools and libraries. Company is permitted but not required to recover such costs from its customers.  The Federal Communications Commission sets the Federal USF rates on a quarterly basis.  USF rates are subject to change each quarter.
  2. b911 Fee. This fee is imposed by local governments to help pay primarily for the handling of calls for emergency services such as fire and rescue.
  3. 911 Service Fee. Company may charge a per-DID/ phone number fee to recover Company’s costs directly associated with providing 911 and E911 to its customers.
  4. Regulatory Recovery Fee. Company may charge a monthly regulatory recovery fee to offset costs it incurs in complying with obligations imposed by, and inquiries made by, federal, state, and municipal regulatory bodies/governments and related legal and billing expenses.

  1. LOCAL NUMBER PORTABILITY

5.1 Porting In.  Customer may elect to port an existing DID/ telephone number to Company (“Port-In”) for use with the Voice Service.  In the event Customer elects to Port-In a number, Customer must first select a temporary number from the list of DID/ telephone numbers Company presents to Customer at the time Customer orders the Voice Service, which will be used until the Port-In is complete.  Company will support all valid requests and will cooperate with Customer to perform any Port-In in accordance with Customer’s reasonable directions and Company’s operating procedures.  Neither Company nor its providers are responsible for any delay, rejection, or false processing of Port-In requests to the extent such delay, rejection, or false processing is attributable to Customer, Customer’s prior provider, or any third parties.

5.2      Porting Out.  Customer or a third-party provider acting as agent on behalf of Customer (“Requesting Party”) may request that Company port a number assigned to Customer by Company to a third party provider (“Port-Out”).  Company will support all such requests and will promptly cooperate with the Requesting Party to perform any Port-Out in accordance with the Requesting Party’s reasonable directions and Company’s standard operating procedures.  In the event of any Port-Out, Customer agrees that until such time as the Port-Out is complete and Customer terminates the Voice Service for such DID/ telephone number, Customer shall remain bound by the terms of this Agreement related to that DID/ telephone number.  Once the Port-Out is complete, Customer must terminate the Voice Services associated with such ported DID/ telephone number in order to stop incurring charges for such DID/ telephone number.  Customer recognizes and agrees that in the event of a Port-Out Customer shall remain responsible for paying the required monthly service fees in accordance with the Terms of Service.

  1. 711 DIALING

The Voice Service allows dialing 711 to reach Telecommunications Relay Services (TRS).  In the event the user’s registered location is not the same as the user’s geographic location, 711 calls may not be routed to the correct TRS center for the user’s location.
