9-1-1 SERVICES DISCLAIMER PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

Technology:
Easytel facilitates telephone calls using VoIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) technology.  VoIP technology, although similar in functionality to traditional voice technology, creates unique limitations and circumstances related to emergency 9-1-1 services.


Differences to Traditional Telephone Service:
There are important differences between traditional 9-1-1 telephone services and the services provided by Easytel application as outlined below.


IT IS REQUIRED THAT CUSTOMERS REVIEW THE SECTION BELOW IN ITS ENTIRETY
9-1-1 Mobile VoIP Locating Limitations:

VoIP telephone numbers are associated with a specific address for the purpose of locating the caller in the event of a 9-1-1 emergency.  The address associated with the VoIP telephone number is provided by the customer upon registration.  Because Easytel is a mobile VoIP service it may be likely that the caller location will be other than the address specified for 9-1-1 purposes.  This could present a danger if the caller is unable to communicate their location to the 9-1-1 operator due to an existing or onset medical condition.


Options for placing 9-1-1 emergency calls:

Option 1: Placing 9-1-1 calls using the regular dialer:
When your smartphone’s regular dialer is used, the dependence on VoIP technology is removed and the call is transmitted through a traditional voice network which allows the 9-1-1 operator to pinpoint your exact location.  In the event that you’re not able to communicate your exact location, 9-1-1 operators would still be able to locate you.  Important - if you’re in a geographic area that does not support enhanced 9-1-1 services, you will not be automatically located unless you communicate your location to the operator verbally.
Please note - in order to use the native dialer to place 9-1-1 emergency calls a working sim card must be properly installed in your smartphone.

 

Option 2: Placing 9-1-1 calls using the Easytel App:
You may place 9-1-1 calls using the Easytel App however if you are to place 9-1-1 calls using the Easytel app it is important to understand the limitations as detailed below.
If the Customer makes a 9-1-1 emergency call using the Easytel app, the Easytel app will attempt to automatically route the Customer’s 9-1-1 call through a third-party service provider to the Public Safety Answering Point (“PSAP”) corresponding to the Customer’s address of record on his or her account. However, due to the limitations of the VoIP telephone services, the Customer’s 9-1-1 call may be routed to a different location than that which would be used for traditional 9-1-1 dialing. For example, the Customer’s call may be forwarded to a third-party, specialized call centre that handles emergency calls. This call centre is different from the PSAP (Public Safety Answering Point) that would answer a traditional 9-1-1 emergency call, which has automatically generated the Customer’s address information. Consequently, the VoIP Customer will be required to provide his or her name, address, and telephone number to the call centre operator.
Easytel will attempt to automatically provide the PSAP dispatcher or emergency service operator with the name, address and telephone number associated with the Customer’s account. However, for technical reasons, the dispatcher receiving the call may not be able to capture or retain the Customer’s name, phone number or physical location. Therefore, when making a 9-1-1 emergency call using the Easytel App, the Customer must be prepared to immediately (confirm and) inform the dispatcher of his or her location and call-back number (or the location of the emergency, if different), since the operator may not have this information. If the Customer is unable to speak, the dispatcher may not be able to locate him/her if the Customer’s location information is not up to date. Failure to keep information current may result in the emergency operator assuming that the customer is physically at the last registered address.


Correctness of information:
The Customer is responsible for providing, maintaining, and updating correct contact information (including name, residential address and telephone number) for his or her account online by signing in at www.myeasytel.com.  Please note - the address provided will be the default address referenced for 9-1-1 emergency services.
If the Customer does not correctly identify the actual location where he/she is located, or if the Customers account information has recently changed or has otherwise not been updated, 9-1-1 calls may be misdirected to an incorrect emergency response site.
For example, if the Customer changes the address from which he or she uses their Easytel service, access to 9-1-1 service will not function properly. Upon moving to a new address, or change of use of Easytel service, the customer must immediately notify and advise Easytel via the Easytel Online Account Portal with the most current location information.
Failure to advise Easytel of any changes will adversely affect the ability to access the 9-1-1 Service.


Geographical Restrictions:

Unless expressly and specifically stated otherwise in our agreement, Easytel provides the service for use only by persons located within the US.  Easytel makes no representation that all products, services and/or material described are appropriate or available for use in locations outside the US or all territories within the US. Those who choose to purchase our services from other locations do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws. Certain companies affiliated with Easytel provide services and operate websites in various other countries throughout the world, some of which websites may be linked to Easytel. Any such International websites will be governed by their own terms of use and privacy policies and not by these Terms. 


Disconnections:
During the 9-1-1 call, the Customer must not disconnect the 9-1-1 emergency call until told to do so by the dispatcher, as the dispatcher may not have the Customer’s number or contact information.
If the Customer is inadvertently disconnected, he/she must call back immediately.


Connection time:
For technical reasons, including network congestion, it is possible that a 9-1-1 emergency call placed using the Easytel App will produce a busy signal or will take longer to connect when compared with traditional 9-1-1 calls.


9-1-1 calls may not function:
For technical reasons, the functionality of 9-1-1 VoIP emergency calls when using the Easytel App may cease or be curtailed in various circumstances, including but not limited to:

  • if your VoIP service is not functioning correctly for any reason, including power outages, VoIP service outage, suspension or disconnection of your service due to billing issues, network or Internet congestion,

  • network or Internet outage in the event of an internet outage; you may need to reset or reconfigure the system access equipment before being able to use the VoIP service, including for 9-1-1 emergency calls;

Inform other users:
The Customer must ensure full understanding of the 9-1-1 service limitations and is responsible for notifying, and agrees to notify, any user or potential users of VoIP services aware of the nature and limitations of 9-1-1 emergency calls on the VoIP services as described herein.


Liability:
Customers are advised to review this section with respect to Easytel’s limitations of liability.


BY ACCEPTING THESE TERMS, THE CUSTOMER CONFIRMS THAT THEY HAVE READ AND UNDERSTOOD THESE 9-1-1 SERVICE DIFFERENCES and THE CUSTOMER ACCEPTS Easytel VoIP SERVICES ON THESE TERMS, AND HEREBY WAIVES ANY AND ALL CLAIMS OR CAUSES OF ACTION AGAINST Easytel, ITS AFFILIATES, UNDERLYING PROVIDERS, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS OR CONTRACTORS, LICENSORS, AND SUPPLIERS ARISING FROM OR RELATING TO THE Easytel 9-1-1 SERVICE. THE CUSTOMER ALSO AGREES TO INDEMNIFY, DEFEND AND HOLD HARMLESS THE ABOVE PERSONS FROM ANY SUCH CLAIMS FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING LEGAL FEES. THE CUSTOMER’S WAIVER AND INDEMNITY IN THIS SECTION SHALL SURVIVE TERMINATION OF THIS AGREEMENT.
