We may change our prices, fees, the Services and/or the terms and conditions of this Agreement in the future. Unless this Agreement or applicable law specifies otherwise, we will give you thirty (30) days prior Notice of any significant change to this Agreement. If you find the change unacceptable, you have the right to cancel your Service(s).

General Terms And Conditions

1. Acceptance Of This Agreement

You will have accepted this Agreement and be bound by its terms if you use the Services provided by Minto Communications or otherwise indicate your affirmative acceptance of such Services.

2. Charges And Billings

  1. Charges, Fees, and Taxes That You Must Pay. You agree to pay all charges associated with the Services, including, but not limited to, installation charges, monthly service charges, Minto Equipment (as defined below) charges, service call charges, measured and per call charges, applicable federal, provincial, and local taxes (however designated) and any fees or payment obligations imposed by governmental or quasi-governmental bodies for the sale, installation, use, or provision of the Services. You agree to pay any regulatory recovery fees which Minto invoices you for municipal, provincial and federal government fees or assessments imposed on Minto, or any programs in which Minto participates, including, but not limited to, public, educational and governmental access, universal service, telecom relay services for the visually/hearing impaired, rights-of-way access, and programs supporting 911/E911 system. YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYING ANY GOVERNMENT IMPOSED FEES AND TAXES THAT BECOME APPLICABLE RETROACTIVELY. We will provide you with notice and an effective date of any change in our prices or fees, unless the change in price is related to a change in governmental or quasi-governmental taxes, fees or assessments, in which case we may elect not to provide notice except where required by applicable law. Not all fees apply to all Services.
    For HSI Subscribers. HSI price information is available at the Minto Communications Society web site. These requirements may be located at an alternative site if we so notify you.
  2. How We Will Bill You. Unless you have signed a minimum term addendum, Services are provided to you on a month-to-month basis. You will generally be billed monthly, in advance, for recurring service charges, equipment charges, and fees. IN ADDITION, YOU MUST PAY, ON OR BEFORE THE DAY WE INSTALL ANY OR ALL OF THE SERVICES, THE FIRST MONTH'S SERVICE CHARGES, MINTO EQUIPMENT CHARGES, ANY DEPOSITS, AND ANY INSTALLATION CHARGES. You may be billed for some Services individually after they have been provided to you.
    Your first bill may include pro-rated charges from the date you first begin receiving Services, as well as monthly recurring charges for the next month and charges for non-recurring charges for any nonrecurring services you have received. If you make partial payment of any bill, we will apply that payment to the outstanding charges in the amounts and proportions that we determine. However, we do not waive our rights to collect the full balance owed to us by accepting partial payment.
  3. Third-Party Charges That Are Your Responsibility. You acknowledge that you may incur charges with third-party service providers that are separate and apart from the amounts charged by us. These may include charges resulting from accessing on-line services, accessing parties who charge for their telephone-based services, purchasing or subscribing to other offerings via the Internet, if applicable, or otherwise. You are solely responsible for all charges payable to third parties, including all applicable taxes. In addition, you are solely responsible for protecting the security of credit card and other personal information provided to others in connection with such transactions.
  4. Alternative Billing Arrangements. In certain cases, Minto may agree to provide billing services on behalf of third parties, as the agent of the third party. Any such third-party charges shall be payable pursuant to any contract or other arrangement between you and the third party. We shall not be responsible for any dispute regarding these charges between you and any third party. You must address all such disputes directly with the third party.
  5. Payment by Credit Card or Check. If you use a credit card to pay for the Services, that use is governed by the card issuer agreement for that card, and you must refer to that agreement for your rights and liabilities as a cardholder. If Minto does not receive payment from your credit card issuer or its agents, you agree to pay all amounts due upon demand. If you make payment by check, you authorize Minto to collect your check electronically. You agree that you may not amend or modify this Agreement with any restrictive endorsements (such as "paid in full"), releases, or other statements on or accompanying checks or other payments accepted by Minto and that any such notations shall have no legal effect.
  6. Our Remedies if You Pay Late or Fail to Pay
    1. Late or Non-Payments: You may be billed fees, charges and assessments related to late payments or non-payments if for any reason (i) Minto does not receive from you any required payment for the Services by the payment due date or (ii) you pay less than the full amount due for the Services.
    2. Fees Not Considered Interest or Penalties: Minto does not anticipate that you will fail to pay for the Services on a timely basis, and we do not extend credit to subscribers. Any fees, charges, and assessments due to late payment or nonpayment are not interest, credit service charges, or finance charges or penalties. Rather, they are liquidated damages intended to be a reasonable advance estimate of our costs resulting from late payments and non-payments. These costs will be difficult to calculate or to predict when we set such fees, charges, and assessments, because we cannot know in advance: (a) whether you will pay for the Services on a timely basis, if ever; (b) if you do pay late, when you will actually pay; and (c) what costs we will incur because of your late payment or non-payment.
    3. Collection Costs: If we are required to use a collection agency to collect money owed by you, you agree to pay the reasonable costs of collection. These costs include but are not limited to any collection agency's fees and arbitration or court costs.
    4. Suspension/Disconnect: If you fail to pay the full amount due for any or all of the Services then Minto, at its sole discretion in accordance with applicable law, may suspend or disconnect any or all the Services you receive.
  7. Reconnection Fees and Related Charges. Should you wish to resume a Service after any suspension, we may require you to pay a reconnection fee. Should you wish to reinstate any or all Services after disconnection, we may require you to pay an installation fee and/or service activation fee. These fees are in addition to all past due charges and other fees. Reconnection of the Services is subject to our credit policies, this Agreement and applicable law.
  8. Our Right to Make Credit Inquiries. YOU AUTHORIZE MINTO TO MAKE INQUIRIES AND TO RECEIVE INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR CREDIT EXPERIENCE FROM OTHERS, TO ENTER THIS INFORMATION IN YOUR FILE, AND TO DISCLOSE THIS INFORMATION CONCERNING YOU TO APPROPRIATE THIRD PARTIES FOR REASONABLE BUSINESS PURPOSES.
  9. Your Responsibilities Concerning Billing Questions. Subject to applicable law, if you intend to dispute a charge or request a billing credit, you must contact Minto within sixty (60) days of the date on the bill. You waive any disputes or credits that you do not report within sixty (60) days.

3. Refundable Deposit

We may require you to pay a refundable deposit when you activate the Service(s). We may also require you to pay a refundable deposit after activation of the Service(s) if you add Minto Equipment and/ or Service(s) or if you fail to pay any amounts when they are due hereunder. If we disconnect your Service(s) or are otherwise required under applicable law to refund the deposit, we shall within forty-five (45) days or as otherwise specified by applicable law return a sum equal to the deposit(s) you paid (without interest unless otherwise required by law) minus any amounts due on your account (including without limitation, any amounts owed for Services or for any Minto Equipment that is damaged, altered, or not returned).

4. Changes To Services

Subject to applicable law, we have the right to change our Services, Minto Equipment and rates or charges, at any time with or without notice. We also may rearrange, delete, add to or otherwise change programming or features or offerings contained in the Services, including but not limited to, content, functionality, hours of availability, customer equipment requirements, speed and upstream and downstream rate limitations. If we do give you notice, it may be provided on your monthly bill, as a bill insert, in a newspaper or other communication permitted under applicable law. If you find a change in the Service(s) unacceptable, you have the right to cancel your Service(s). However, if you continue to receive Service(s) after the change, this will constitute your acceptance of the change. Please take the time to read any notices of changes to the Service(s). We are not liable for failure to deliver any programming, services, CHANGES TO SERVICES features or offerings except as provided in Section 11e.

5. Access To Your Premises

You agree to allow us and our agents the right, to enter at reasonable times your property upon which the Services and/or Minto Equipment will be provided (the "Premises"), for purposes of installing, configuring, maintaining, inspecting, upgrading, replacing and removing the Services and/or Minto Equipment used to receive any of the Services. You warrant that you are either the owner of the Premises or that you have the authority to give us access to the Premises. If you are not the owner of the Premises, you are responsible for obtaining any necessary approval from the owner to allow us and our agents into the Premises to perform the activities specified above. In addition, you agree to supply us or our agent, if we ask, the owner's name, address and phone number and/or evidence that the owner has authorized you to grant access to us and our agents to the Premises.

6. Maintenance And Ownership Of Equipment

  1. Minto Equipment. You agree that except for the wiring installed inside the Premises ("Inside Wiring"), all Minto equipment belongs to us or other third parties and will not be deemed fixtures or in any way part of the Premises. Minto Equipment includes all new or reconditioned equipment installed, provided or leased to you by us or our agents, including but not limited to, cabling or wiring and related electronic devices, wireless client radios, wireless gateway/routers, any other hardware and all software or "downloads" to Minto Equipment. You agree to use Minto Equipment only for the Services pursuant to this Agreement. We may remove or change the Minto Equipment at our discretion at any time the Services are active or following the termination of your Service(s). You agree to allow us access to the Premises for these purposes. You may not sell, lease, abandon or give away the Minto Equipment, or permit any other provider of high speed data or telephone services to use the Minto Equipment. The Minto Equipment may only be used in the Premises. At your request, we may relocate the Minto Equipment in the Premises for an additional charge, at a time agreeable to you and us. YOU UNDERSTAND AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT IF YOU ATTEMPT TO INSTALL OR USE THE MINTO EQUIPMENT OR SERVICES AT A LOCATION OTHER THAN THE PREMISES, THE SERVICES MAY FAIL TO FUNCTION OR MAY FUNCTION IMPROPERLY. You agree that you will not allow anyone other than Minto employees or agents to service the Minto Equipment. We suggest that the Minto Equipment in your possession be covered by your homeowners, renters, or other insurance. You will be directly responsible for loss, repair, replacement and other costs, damages, fees and charges if you do not return the Minto Equipment to us in an undamaged condition.
  2. Customer Equipment.
    Responsibility: Minto has no responsibility for the operation or support, maintenance or repair of any equipment, software or services that you elect to use in connection with the Services or Minto Equipment (the "Customer Equipment".)
    For HSI Subscribers. You can find Minto's current minimum technical and other requirements for HSI subscribers at www.mintocomm.ca (or an alternative site if we notify you). Whether a wireless client radio, gateway/router or other device is owned by you or us, we have the unrestricted right, but not the obligation, to upgrade or change the firmware in these devices remotely or on the Premises at any time that we determine it necessary or desirable in order to provide Services to you in accordance with our specifications and requirements.
    1. Non-Recommended Configurations: Customer Equipment that does not meet Minto's minimum technical or other specifications constitutes a "Non-Recommended Configuration." NEITHER MINTO NOR ANY OF ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS OR AGENTS WARRANT THAT A NON-RECOMMENDED CONFIGURATION WILL ENABLE YOU TO SUCCESSFULLY INSTALL, ACCESS, OPERATE OR USE THE SERVICES. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT ANY SUCH INSTALLATION, ACCESS, OPERATION, OR USE COULD CAUSE CUSTOMER EQUIPMENT TO FAIL TO OPERATE OR CAUSE DAMAGE TO CUSTOMER EQUIPMENT, YOU, YOUR PREMISES OR MINTO EQUIPMENT. NEITHER MINTO NOR ANY OF ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS OR AGENTS SHALL HAVE ANY LIABILITY WHATSOEVER FOR ANY SUCH FAILURE OR DAMAGE. Minto reserves the right to deny you customer support for the Services and/or terminate Service(s) if you use a Non-Recommended Configuration.
    2. No Unauthorized Devices or Tampering: You agree not to attach any unauthorized device to Minto Equipment or the Services. If you make any unauthorized connection or modification to Minto Equipment or the Services or any other part of our wireless network, we may terminate your Service and recover such damages as may result from your actions. Unless expressly authorized by us, you agree not to install anything to intercept or receive any of the Services offered over our wireless network or to assist any person in intercepting or receiving any of the Services offered over our wireless network. You also agree that you will not attach anything to the Inside Wiring, Minto Equipment or Customer Equipment, whether installed by you or us, which singly or together impairs the integrity of our wireless network or degrades our wireless network's signal quality or strength or creates signal leakage.
      You hereby agree that we may recover damages from you for tampering with any Minto Equipment or any other part of our wireless network or for receiving unauthorized Service(s). You agree that it would be difficult if not impossible to calculate precisely the lost revenue resulting from your receipt of unauthorized Service(s) or the alteration or improper use of Minto Equipment. You therefore agree to pay us as liquidated damages, the sum of $500.00 per device used to receive the unauthorized Services in addition to our cost to replace any altered, damaged or unreturned Minto Equipment or other equipment owned by Minto, including any incidental costs. The unauthorized reception of the Services may also result in criminal fines and/or imprisonment.
  3. Inside Wiring. You may install Inside Wiring, such as additional cable wiring and outlets, provided it does not interfere with the normal operations of our wireless network. If you have us install Inside Wiring, we will charge you for that service. Regardless of who installed it, we consider the Inside Wiring your property or the property of whomever owns the Premises. Accordingly, you are responsible for the repair and maintenance of the Inside Wiring, unless you and Minto have agreed otherwise in writing. (If you do not own the Premises, contact your landlord or building manager about the repair or maintenance of Inside Wiring.) If you have us repair or maintain the Inside Wiring, we will charge you for that service.

7. Use Of Services

You agree that the Services and the Minto Equipment will be used only by you and the members of your immediate household living with you at the same address and only for personal, residential, non-commercial purposes, unless otherwise specifically authorized by us in writing. You will not use the Minto Equipment at any time at an address other than the Premises without our prior written authorization. You agree and represent that you will not resell or share or permit another to resell or share the Services in whole or in part. You will not use or permit another to use the Minto Equipment or the Service(s), directly or indirectly, for any unlawful purpose, including, but not limited to, in violation of any posted Minto policy applicable to the Services. Use of the Minto Equipment or Services for transmission, communications or storage of any information, data or material in violation of any federal, provincial or local regulation or law is prohibited.

You acknowledge that you are accepting this Agreement on behalf of all persons who use the Minto Equipment and/or Services and that you shall have sole responsibility for ensuring that all other users understand and comply with the terms and conditions of this Agreement and any applicable Minto policies including, but not limited to, acceptable use and privacy policies. You further acknowledge and agree that you shall be solely responsible for any transactions, including, without limitation, purchases made through or in connection with the Services. You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Minto and its affiliates, suppliers, and agents against all claims and expenses (including reasonable legal fees) arising out of the use of the Services, the Minto Equipment and/or the Customer Equipment or the breach of this Agreement or any of the applicable Minto policies by you or any other user.

You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Minto and its affiliates, suppliers, and agents against all claims and expenses (including reasonable legal fees) arising out of any breach of this Section including, but not limited to, any claims based on or arising out of any material violation of any applicable law.

The limitations of liability set forth in this Section apply to any acts, omissions, and negligence of Minto and its underlying third-party service providers, agents and suppliers (and their respective officers, employees, agents, contractors or representatives) which, but for that provision, would give rise to a cause of action in contract, tort or under any other legal doctrine.

Minto does not represent, warrant, or covenant that the installation of the special software or applications or access to our Web portal(s) will not cause the loss of files or disrupt the normal operations of any Customer Equipment, including but not limited to your computer(s).

Additional Provisions Applicable To High-Speed Internet Service

In addition to the provisions above, the following are specifically applicable to Minto HSI Subscribers, including the Software License Agreement attached as Exhibit A to this Agreement.

  1. Intellectual Property Rights

All such agreements are incorporated in this Agreement by reference. When this Agreement terminates, all end user licenses also terminate; you agree to destroy at that time all versions and copies of all software received by you in connection with HSI.
    2. Ownership of Addresses. You acknowledge that use of HSI does not give you any ownership or other rights in any Internet/on-line addresses provided to you, including but not limited to Internet Protocol ("IP") addresses, e-mail addresses and Web addresses. We may modify or change these addresses at any time without notice and shall in no way be required to compensate you for these changes.
    3. Authorization. Minto does not claim any ownership of any material that you publish, transmit or distribute using HSI. By using HSI to publish, transmit or distribute material or content, you (i) warrant that the material or content complies with the provisions of this Agreement, (ii) consent to and authorize Minto, its agents, suppliers, and affiliates to reproduce, publish, distribute, and display the content worldwide and (iii) warrant that you have the right to provide this authorization. You acknowledge that material posted or transmitted using HSI may be copied, republished or distributed by third parties, and you agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Minto, its agents, suppliers, and affiliates for any harm resulting from these actions.
    4. Copyright. Title and intellectual property rights to HSI are owned by Minto, its agents, suppliers, or affiliates or their licensors or otherwise by the owners of such material and are protected by copyright laws and treaties. You may not copy, redistribute, resell or publish any part of HSI without express prior written consent from Minto or other owner of such material.
    5. Material Downloaded through HSI. In addition to any content that may be provided by us, you may access material through HSI that is not owned by Minto. Specific terms and conditions may apply to your use of any content or material made available through HSI that is not owned by Minto. You should read those terms and conditions to learn how they apply to you and your use of any non-Minto content.
  2. IP Addresses
    Minto will provide you with dynamic Internet protocol ("IP") address(es) as a component of HSI, and these IP address(es) can and do change over time. You will not alter, modify, or tamper with dynamic IP address(es) assigned to you or any other customer. You agree not to use a dynamic domain name server or DNS to associate a host name with the dynamic IP address(es) for any commercial purpose. You also agree not to use any software that provides for static IP address(es) on or in conjunction with any computer(s) or network device connected to HSI. If applicable, Minto will release and/or recover the dynamic IP address(es) when the Service or this Agreement is disconnected, discontinued, or terminated.
  3. Additional Limitations On Minto's Liability For HSI
    1. Responsibility for Content. You acknowledge that there is some content and material on the Internet or otherwise available through HSI which may be offensive to some individuals, may be unsuitable for children, may violate federal, provincial or local laws, rules or regulations or may violate your protected rights or those of others. We assume no responsibility for this content or material. Anyone who accesses such content and material does so at his or her own risk. NEITHER MINTO NOR ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS OR CONTRACTORS SHALL HAVE ANY LIABILITY WHATSOEVER FOR ANY CLAIMS, LOSSES, ACTIONS, DAMAGES, SUITS OR PROCEEDINGS ARISING OUT OF OR OTHERWISE RELATING TO ACCESS TO SUCH CONTENT OR MATERIAL BY YOU OR OTHERS. Questions or complaints regarding content or material should be addressed to the content or material provider. You acknowledge that software programs are commercially available that claim to be able to restrict access to sexually explicit or other objectionable material on the Internet. We make no representation or warranty regarding the effectiveness of such programs.
    2. Monitoring of Postings and Transmissions. Minto shall have no obligation to monitor postings or transmissions made in connection with HSI. However, you acknowledge and agree that Minto and its agents have the right to monitor, from time to time, any such postings and transmissions, including without limitation e-mail, newsgroups, chat, IP audio and video, and Web space content. Minto may also use and disclose them in accordance with the Minto High-Speed Internet Acceptable Use Policy and other applicable policies, and as otherwise required by law or government request. We reserve the right to refuse to upload, post, publish, transmit or store any information or materials, in whole or in part, that, in our sole discretion, is unacceptable, undesirable or in violation of this Agreement.
    3. Eavesdropping. Our facilities are used by numerous persons or entities including, without limitation, other subscribers to HSI. As a result, there is a risk that you could be subject to "eavesdropping." This means that other persons or entities may be able to access and/or monitor your use of HSI. This risk of eavesdropping exists not only with our facilities, but also on the Internet and other services to which access is provided as a part of HSI. If you post, store, transmit, or disseminate any sensitive or confidential information, you do so at your sole risk.
      NEITHER MINTO NOR ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS, OR AGENTS SHALL HAVE ANY LIABILITY WHATSOEVER FOR ANY CLAIMS, LOSSES, ACTIONS, DAMAGES, SUITS OR PROCEEDINGS ARISING OUT OF OR OTHERWISE RELATING TO SUCH ACTIONS BY YOU.
      You acknowledge that software programs are commercially available that claim to be capable of encryption or anonymization. We make no representation or warranty regarding the effectiveness of these programs.
    4. FTP/HTTP Service Setup. You acknowledge that when using HSI there are certain applications such as FTP (File Transfer Protocol) or HTTP (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol) which may be used by other persons or entities to gain access to Subscriber's Equipment. You are solely responsible for the security of the Customer Equipment or any other equipment you choose to use in connection with the Service, including without limitation any data stored on such equipment. NEITHER MINTO NOR ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS OR CONTRACTORS SHALL HAVE ANY LIABILITY WHATSOEVER FOR ANY CLAIMS, LOSSES, ACTIONS, DAMAGES, SUITS OR PROCEEDINGS RESULTING FROM, ARISING OUT OF OR OTHERWISE RELATING TO THE USE OF SUCH APPLICATIONS BY YOU, OR THE ACCESS BY OTHERS TO THE CUSTOMER EQUIPMENT OR OTHER EQUIPMENT OF YOURS.
    5. File and Print Sharing. HSI may function in some ways as a Local Area Network (LAN) with each Subscriber constituting a node on the network. As such, users outside of the Premises may be able to access the Customer Equipment and other equipment connected in some way to the Customer Equipment. In addition, some available software includes capabilities that will permit other users to gain access to the Customer Equipment and other equipment connected in some way to the Customer Equipment, and to the software, files and data stored on such equipment. Unless you are subject to a HSI service plan that expressly provides otherwise, we recommend that you connect only a single computer to HSI and that you disable file and print sharing and other capabilities that allow outside users to gain access to the Customer Equipment. You acknowledge that if you fail to follow these recommendations and choose to run these applications, you should take appropriate security measures, and that you do so at your sole risk. NEITHER MINTO NOR ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS, OR AGENTS SHALL HAVE ANY LIABILITY WHATSOEVER FOR ANY CLAIMS, LOSSES, ACTIONS, DAMAGES, SUITS OR PROCEEDINGS RESULTING FROM, ARISING OUT OF OR OTHERWISE RELATING TO ACCESS BY OTHERS OF THE CUSTOMER EQUIPMENT OR ANY OTHER EQUIPMENT CONNECTED IN SOME WAY TO THE CUSTOMER EQUIPMENT, OR TO THE SOFTWARE, FILES AND DATA STORED ON SUCH EQUIPMENT.
    6. Facilities Allocation. Minto reserves the right to determine, in its discretion, and on an ongoing basis, the nature and extent of its facilities allocated to support HSI, including, but not limited to, the amount of bandwidth to be utilized and delivered in conjunction with HSI.
    7. Cookies. You acknowledge that accessing certain Web sites through HSI may result in a "cookie" being placed on your computer system. Cookies are small files stored on a computer's hard drive to simplify and improve a user's Web experience. If you don't want them placed on your computer system, it is your responsibility to disable or restrict the placement of cookies through whatever procedures are available on your browser.
