outbound calls including voicemail, for the initial extensions. Adding an extra extension is subject to
charges as j2 Global may introduce from time to time and 100 outbound minutes will be added per extra
extension. During your free trial period, you will be billed for any usage over your Standard Package
included 500 minutes per month and for any outbound calls to mobile, international and non-geographic
numbers as according to your rate plan. Your use of the eReceptionist Services is subject to your rate
planís telephone minutes. You will find your rate plan at the eReceptionist Website. In the event that you
have exceeded your rate planís allotted telephone minutes, you will automatically be charged per minute of
telephone line usage in excess of your usage limit. Notwithstanding the foregoing, j2 Global reserves the
right to terminate or suspend your account without prior notice in the event that you exceed your rate
planís allotted telephone minutes. When calling international destinations, international rates apply from
the first minute. Please contact the eReceptionist customer service or visit the eReceptionist Website for
current international rates.
3. For Call Manager Services, you must purchase call credits in advance to avail of mobile and
international redirection options. If the Service Number is on a geographic number, a charge for fixed line
redirection may apply. Charges for redirection are calculated on a per second basis and credits utilised are
deducted from the balance of purchased credits held unless otherwise agreed in minimum units of one
hundredth of a credit. The minimum purchase is 1,000 credits. Payment for credits is non-refundable. The
cost of mobile, international and, where relevant, fixed line redirection will be deducted from the balance
of purchased credits held unless otherwise agreed. j2 Global may provide the Services on an account "top up"
basis whereby payment will be accepted and credited to the customer's account in respect of Services to be
provided. In such an instance, monies held for the credit of the customer are considered committed to future
usage and are non-refundable. Prior to initiating an outbound call to a chargeable destination, you must
have sufficient credits available to meet the cost of 80 seconds of a redirected outbound call.
4. Credits for any Service are deemed as purchased upon receipt of payment. These credits will be
held until Customer avails of the Service to redirect calls and the cost of such redirected calls will be
deducted from these credits. Payment in respect of these credits is not refundable at any time. Unless
otherwise provided for by law, credits will be held to credit of the customer for a period of twelve months
from date of purchase, after which time they will be deleted, unless a further purchase of credits is made.
Credits purchased during a free trial period are non refundable.
5. Subject to specific product pricing or agreed pricing, j2 Global will charge Customers for
usage on a per second basis for all outbound call traffic and for all inbound call traffic exceeding certain
limits. In the case of Conference Calling, j2 Global will charge for the total length of the call - the
total number of minutes of all participants combined.
6. Payment of your j2 Global account balance is due monthly or annually and must be made by the
credit card, debit card, BACS or check designated by you for j2 Global use and transactions, or through such
other payment methods as j2 Global may provide from time to time. If your j2 Global account is a qualified
business account and is approved by j2 Global for corporate billing, charges will be accumulated, identified
by Customer identification number and invoiced on a monthly basis.
7. Charges are to be paid on a monthly or annual basis. If payment is not received by j2 Global by
its due date, you agree to immediately pay all amounts due upon demand by j2 Global. Each time you use the
Services, or allow or cause the Services to be used, you agree and reaffirm that j2 Global is authorized to
charge your designated card or obtain payment for the Services through other means legally available to j2
Global. For payments by debit card or credit card, your card issuer's agreement governs your use of your
designated card in connection with the Services and you must refer to such agreement (not this Agreement)
with respect to your rights and liabilities as a cardholder. You agree that j2 Global may (at its option)
accumulate charges incurred during your billing cycle and submit them as one or more aggregate charges
during or at the end of each cycle, and that j2 Global may delay obtaining authorization from your card
issuer or bank until submission of the accumulated charge(s). This means that accumulated charges may appear
on the statement you receive from your card issuer or bank.
8. j2 Global tries to advise customers paying by direct debit fifteen days in advance of the
amount of the debit to be processed to their bank account. For the avoidance of doubt, all amounts due are
payable within 15 days of the invoice date. j2 Global reserves the right to charge interest of 1.5% per
month on monies overdue for payment until such payments are made in full.
9. Your monthly or annual service fees are payable monthly or annually respectively, in advance,
and are COMPLETELY NON-REFUNDABLE. You agree that j2 Global may submit charges for your monthly or annual
service fee each month or each year, without further authorization from you, until you provide prior notice
(in accordance with j2 Global's verification procedures, as may be established by j2 Global from time to
time in its sole discretion) that you have terminated this authorization or wish to change your designated
card or bank account. Such notice will not affect charges submitted before j2 Global reasonably could act on
your notice. If you have any question regarding any charges that have been applied to your account, you must
contact j2 Global's Customer Service Department within 30 days of the charge date. Failure to use your
account will not be deemed a basis for refusing to pay any charges submitted by j2 Global in accordance with
10. If you subscribed to the Services pursuant to a special offer granting you a free trial
period, your initial monthly or annual service fee or some smaller fee will be PRE-AUTHORIZED AGAINST YOUR
CREDIT CARD OR DEBIT CARD LIMIT (meaning the amounts pre-authorized will not be considered available credit
or debit funds in such account) and will be immediately charged to your credit or debit card, without
further authorization from you, upon the expiration of such free trial period, unless you provide prior
notice (in accordance with j2 Global's verification procedures, as may be established by j2 Global from time
to time in its sole discretion) that you have terminated this authorization. Such notice will not affect
charges submitted before j2 Global reasonably could act on your notice.
11. If you subscribed to the Services pursuant to a special offer granting a pre-paid discount for
a fixed number of months, your pre-paid fees are payable in advance and are COMPLETELY NON-REFUNDABLE. In
addition, your initial monthly service fee for the month immediately following your pre-paid period will be
PRE-AUTHORIZED AGAINST YOUR CREDIT CARD OR DEBIT CARD LIMIT and will be immediately charged to your credit
or debit card, without further authorization from you, upon the expiration of such pre-paid period, unless
you provide prior notice (in accordance with j2 Global's verification procedures, as may be established by
j2 Global from time to time in its sole discretion) that you have terminated this authorization. Such notice
will not affect charges submitted before j2 Global reasonably could act on your notice.
12. j2 Global may provide the Services on credit terms (15 days) at its discretion. j2 Global
reserves the right to refuse to provide the Services if it is not satisfied with the perceived credit risk
that j2 Global would incur in the provision of the Services on this basis and j2 Global reserves the right
to seek and obtain information from you, at no cost to j2 Global, at any time, to ease any concerns it may
have with regard to the perceived credit risk to j2 Global in providing the Services to you. j2 Global
reserves the right to seek, on an exceptional basis, at any time, an immediate interim payment in respect of
monies calculated to be due.
13. EACH CUSTOMER, INCLUDING A COMPANY, IS LIMITED TO ONE (1) FREE TRIAL ACCOUNT PER SERVICE.
14. In the event of a dispute over the amount of monies owed, all invoiced payments and amounts
debited to the credit/debit card holder's account will remain payable and due for payment. Disputed payments
must be notified to j2 Global as soon as possible and in any event within 10 days of the date of invoice. j2
Global will then investigate all disputed calculations/billings. However j2 Global's decision in respect of
payments due will be final.
15. You must promptly notify j2 Global of changes to: (a) the account number or expiration date of
your designated card; (b) your billing address; and (c) the name of each minor whom you have authorized to
use your j2 Global account. You must also promptly notify j2 Global if your card is cancelled (e.g., for
loss or theft).
16. IN ORDER TO AVOID INTERRUPTIONS IN THE SERVICES CAUSED BY REJECTED CREDIT OR DEBIT CARD
CHARGES, J2 GLOBAL RESERVES THE RIGHT TO UPDATE YOUR CREDIT OR DEBIT CARD DETAILS (SUCH AS EXPIRATION DATES)
WHERE THIS IS NOT PROHIBITED BY LAW. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT J2 GLOBAL IS ENTITLED TO OBTAIN SUCH
UPDATED CARD DETAILS, STORE THEM AND USE THEM TO BILL CHARGES.
13. Termination for Non-Payment
j2 Global reserves the right to suspend or terminate your j2
Global account without notice upon rejection of any charges or if your card issuer (or its agent or
affiliate) or your bank seeks return of payments previously made to j2 Global or in any other event of
non-payment of charges when j2 Global believes you are liable for the charge. Such rights are in addition to
and not in lieu of any other legal rights or remedies available to j2 Global.
1. All programs, services, processes, designs, software, technologies,
trademarks, trade names, inventions and materials comprising the Services are wholly owned by j2 Global
and/or its licensors and service providers except where expressly stated otherwise. You may not use j2
Globalís trademarks, trade names, patents, copyrights or other intellectual property rights without j2
Globalís prior written permission.
2. YOU FURTHER UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT YOU ARE NOT THE OWNER OF ANY SERVICE NUMBER ASSIGNED TO
YOU BY j2 GLOBAL. OWNERSHIP OF ANY SUCH SERVICE NUMBER IS VESTED SOLELY IN j2 GLOBAL (AND YOU ARE GIVEN A
SERVICE AS SPECIFIED IN THIS AGREEMENT). YOU ARE EXPRESSLY PROHIBITED FROM CAUSING OR ATTEMPTING TO CAUSE
THE SERVICE NUMBER ASSIGNED TO YOUR ACCOUNT TO BE TRANSFERRED TO ANY OTHER SERVICE PROVIDER, TELEPHONE
CARRIER OR ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY (ALSO SOMETIMES REFERRED TO AS "PORTING" THE TELEPHONE NUMBER). IN THE
EVENT YOU ARE FOUND TO HAVE VIOLATED THIS PROHIBITION YOU AGREE TO IMMEDIATELY RETURN THE NUMBER TO j2
GLOBAL AND PAY TO j2 GLOBAL AN AMOUNT EQUAL TO Ä400 (OR THE EQUIVALENT IN LOCAL CURRENCY). YOU AUTHORIZE j2
GLOBAL TO CHARGE YOUR ACCOUNT CREDIT CARD OR TAKE ANY OTHER MEASURES REQUIRED TO COLLECT THIS PAYMENT. YOU
AGREE THAT THIS PAYMENT REPRESENTS LIQUIDATED DAMAGES REFLECTING A REASONABLE MEASURE OF THE ACTUAL OR
ANTICIPATED HARM AND DAMAGES CAUSED TO j2 GLOBAL FROM SUCH VIOLATION IN LIGHT OF THE DIFFICULTIES OF PROOF
OF j2 GLOBALíS LOSS AND THAT THIS PAYMENT IS NOT A PENALTY. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS TO
BE PLACED ON YOUR RIGHT TO PORT THE SERVICE NUMBER ASSIGNED TO YOU, SO SOME OF THESE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT
APPLY. HOWEVER, EVEN IF YOU ARE ENTITLED TO PORT SUCH SERVICE NUMBER, YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT IT MAY
NOT BE POSSIBLE TO DO SO, E.G. WHEN NO PORTING AGREEMENT EXISTS BETWEEN YOUR AND OUR TELEPHONE CARRIER OR
FOR ANY OTHER REASON.
3. IF YOU "PORTED IN" A TELEPHONE NUMBER IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES OR ARE
ENTITLED TO "PORT OUT" A SERVICE NUMBER UNDER LOCAL LAW, YOU MAY "PORT OUT" THAT NUMBER UPON TERMINATION OF
YOUR j2 GLOBAL ACCOUNT ONLY IF YOU SATISFY THE FOLLOWING REQUIREMENTS: (i) YOU PROVIDE WRITTEN NOTICE TO j2
GLOBAL OF YOUR INTENTION TO "PORT OUT" THE TELEPHONE NUMBER ASSOCIATED WITH THE TERMINATED j2 GLOBAL ACCOUNT
NO LATER THAN THIRTY (30) DAYS AFTER THE DATE OF TERMINATION OF YOUR j2 GLOBAL ACCOUNT (THE "PORTING NOTICE
PERIOD"); (ii) YOUR NEW TELEPHONE CARRIER PROVIDES OUR TELEPHONE CARRIER WITH A DULY EXECUTED PORTING
REQUEST PRIOR TO THE EXPIRATION OF THE PORTING NOTICE PERIOD; AND (iii) PRIOR TO THE EXPIRATION OF THE
PORTING NOTICE PERIOD, j2 GLOBAL HAS RECEIVED AN ADMINISTRATION FEE TO COVER ITS COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH
PROCESSING THE PORT IN AN AMOUNT OF (A) €40 (OR THE EQUIVALENT IN LOCAL CURRENCY) IF YOU "PORTED IN" THE
TELEPHONE NUMBER OR (B) £65 IF YOU ARE ENTITLED TO "PORT OUT" A SERVICE NUMBER UNDER LOCAL LAW. YOU HEREBY AUTHORIZE j2
GLOBAL TO CHARGE YOUR CREDIT CARD IN THE APPLICABLE AMOUNT OR TO OTHERWISE ARRANGE TO MAKE THIS PAYMENT TO
j2 GLOBAL WITHIN THE PORTING NOTICE PERIOD. IF YOU FAIL TO SATISFY THESE REQUIREMENTS, THE TELEPHONE NUMBER
YOU "PORTED IN" WILL BECOME THE SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE PROPERTY OF j2 GLOBAL.
4. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT FOLLOWING THE TERMINATION OF YOUR j2 GLOBAL ACCOUNT FOR ANY
REASON, SUCH SERVICE NUMBER MAY BE RE-ASSIGNED IMMEDIATELY TO ANOTHER CUSTOMER, AND YOU AGREE THAT j2 GLOBAL
WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES (INCLUDING CONSEQUENTIAL OR SPECIAL DAMAGES) ARISING OUT OF ANY SUCH
RE-ASSIGNMENT, AND YOU HEREBY WAIVE ANY CLAIMS WITH RESPECT TO ANY SUCH RE-ASSIGNMENT, WHETHER BASED ON
CONTRACTUAL, TORT OR OTHER GROUNDS, EVEN IF j2 GLOBAL HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF DAMAGES.
5. YOU FURTHER UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT j2 GLOBAL MAY FROM TIME TO TIME NEED TO CHANGE THE
SERVICE NUMBER ASSIGNED TO YOU (WHETHER DUE TO AN AREA CODE SPLIT OR ANY OTHER REASON WHETHER OUTSIDE OR
WITHIN j2 GLOBAL'S CONTROL). YOU AGREE THAT j2 GLOBAL WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES (INCLUDING
CONSEQUENTIAL OR SPECIAL DAMAGES) ARISING OUT OF ANY SUCH CHANGE IN THE SERVICE NUMBER ASSIGNED TO YOU, AND
YOU HEREBY WAIVE ANY CLAIMS WITH RESPECT TO ANY SUCH CHANGE, WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACTUAL, TORT OR OTHER
GROUNDS, EVEN IF j2 GLOBAL HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF DAMAGES.
6. IN PARTICULAR, YOU AGREE THAT YOU ARE NOT AUTHORIZED TO CHARGE SERVICES PROVIDED TO YOU OR AT
YOUR REQUEST TO THE SERVICE NUMBER ASSIGNED TO YOU BY j2 GLOBAL AND THAT YOU WILL NOT REQUEST OR OTHERWISE
CAUSE ANY THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDER TO CHARGE ANY SUCH SERVICES TO SUCH NUMBER. ANY SUCH CHARGES WILL
GIVE j2 GLOBAL THE RIGHT TO IMMEDIATELY TERMINATE YOUR j2 GLOBAL ACCOUNT WITHOUT NOTICE.
You agree to indemnify j2 Global and each of its licensors and service
providers from and against any and all liabilities, expenses (including attorneys' fees) and damages arising
out of claims based upon use of your j2 Global account, including any violation of this Agreement by you or

them. If at any time a subscription Service customer wishes to withdraw his or her agreement to be contacted

other services will then be sent to the customer, but j2 Global may continue to send the customer emails
advising the customer of system changes and Services affecting changes in respect of the Services to which
the customer has subscribed. Given that the promotion of the Services and the acceptance of promotional
emails is an integral part of all "free" offering of the Services, in the event of non-subscription
customers advising that he or she no longer wishes to receive such emails, customer's free account will be
closed and no further communications will be sent.
