These charges will be calculated daily and at Podsystem Inc.’s discretion may include interest on interest charges. Late payment invoices may be sent once a week and in such an event may incur a $60 administration charge, at Podsystem, Inc.’s discretion.
  9. Customer agrees that if he/she/it incurs any past-due unpaid balances, Podsystem reserves the right to employ a third-party credit recovery agency to recover monies due. Podsystem is not liable for any detrimental effect (financial or otherwise) if action by the credit recovery agency affects the Customer’s credit rating and/or financial position. Furthermore, the costs, including any legal costs and court fees, incurred in the collection of any overdue payments will be paid by the Customer.
  10. In the event any SIMs incur costs or usage that exceed the expected level of consumer use, Podsystem reserves the right to invoice for these charges separately and the Customer must pay these charges in full within 7 days of the date of the invoice.

  12. In the event of a significant increase in charges or minimum charges by a supplier or mobile network on Products provided by Podsystem Inc., Podsystem reserves the right, with 30 day notice, to change its prices for services for that Product. In this eventuality the Customer has a right of termination as set out in clause 42 and 43. Podsystem may change the charges of specific networks or remove or add any networks at any time without notice so long as this does not materially increase the overall cost or quality of the Product to the Customer.
  13. All state and federal sales taxes will be strictly the responsibility of the Customer. If a Customer of Podsystem resells the Products or includes them within his/her/its own customer services and offers them independent of a direct consumer use, you (the Customer) must collect the appropriate sales taxes from your customers. If you are not reselling the Products, it is your responsibility to inform us and to pay the sales taxes to Podsystem. Podsystem reserves the right to charge sales taxes or historic sales taxes to any customer where the appropriate form has not been provided to Podsystem Inc, in which it is confirmed that you are paying all relevant sales taxes.

Customer Obligations

  1. The Customer is responsible for ensuring that any hardware equipment, or software application running on that equipment, that uses a Product provided by Podsystem complies with any and all requirements of all GSM networks and will not cause any damage or interruption to any mobile phone network. The customer accepts all liabilities for damage or interruption to any mobile phone network caused as a direct result of the hardware equipment or software application running on that equipment. If the Customer is unsure whether the equipment or software being used may cause any damage to a mobile phone network, the customer may request Podsystem to gain approval prior to use. Whether approval is sought is at the sole discretion of Podsystem Inc.
  2. The Customer shall ensure that neither the Customer Content nor the Customer Data or its supply to or use by any End-user pursuant to these Terms & Conditions shall infringe the rights of any third parties or any laws or Regulations (including, without limitation, the European Community Data Protection Directive (95/46/EC), the Directive on Privacy and Electronic Communications (2002/58/EC), the European Community Electronic Commerce Directive (00/31/EC) and the European Community Distance Selling Directive (97/7/EC), and any national implementations thereof, in any country where any message is originated, delivered or in respect of which any of service provided by the Product are performed.
  3. The Customer agrees to comply with reasonable instructions as Podsystem may require as a part of sale and use of its Products and Services from time to time to notify the Customer in regards to using the Product. However, even without such instructions, the Customer expressly agrees that he/she/it will not breach any laws, standards or codes, including but not limited to SIM Boxing, or infringe a third party’s rights, or breach any content requirements or codes stipulated by any relevant authority. Furthermore, the Customer shall refrain, and prevent others, from using the Product for any purpose other than that intended by the relevant telecommunications operator, in any way whatsoever, including “annoyance’’, “spamming’’ or any other form of harassment, creating, or having third parties create, connections with buy lines (090x numbers) on a large scale or committing criminal offences or use the Product in a way which interferes with other users or harasses or restricts any other user from using or enjoying the Hosting MNO Network or the internet. Customer expressly agrees that he/she/it shall be liable for any damage, costs or usage (at standard overuse rates or rates charged by the network to Podsystem – whichever is the higher), arising as a result of unlawful or fraudulent use of the Product, regardless as to whether the Customer was aware of such use or not. Fraudulent use includes, but is not limited to, using the SIM in a way that was not agreed with Podsystem, including via satellite modem, WAP, voice, SMS, USSD and use of an APN which was not provided by and agreed with Podsystem. Fraudulent use can only be prevented by cancelling the SIM off the network. Once a SIM is registered on the network (SIMs are registered on the network prior to delivery to customer) there may be some services that are impossible to block. Therefore, whilst Podsystem will endeavor to ensure that all services are blocked when requested, use of any services apart from those agreed with Podsystem will be deemed to be fraudulent use.
  4. The Hosting MVNO or MNO, as a supplier of Podsystem, has an independent right to claim for damages suffered as a result of the Customer’s failure to comply with Sections 28 & 29 and Customer expressly waives all defenses to jurisdiction and venue of such a claim.
  5. To the extent that Podsystem makes the Customer aware or the Customer becomes aware of any company that provides Products to Podsystem then the Customer hereby agrees and warrants not to make contact with such company (for example a national mobile network) without Podsystem’s consent and accordingly there will be a non-circumvention obligation in that regard. It is understood and agreed by the Customer that money damages would not be a sufficient remedy for any breach of this clause and that the Podsystem shall be entitled to specific performance and injunctive or other equitable relief as a remedy for any such breach and the Customer further agrees to waive any requirement for the security or posting of any bond in connection with such remedy. Such remedy shall not be deemed to be the exclusive remedy for the breach of this clause but shall be in addition to all other remedies available at law or equity to the Podsystem. The Customer will also ensure that its customers or users will abide with this clause.
  6. International Security. Customer represents, warrants and covenants that Customer: (a) is compliant in all respects relevant to this Agreement with all applicable sanction or embargo laws and regulations in effect from time to time, including trade and economic sanctions maintained by the United States Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”), and any other enabling legislation or government order relating thereto (collectively “Sanction Laws”); (b) is not listed on, or owned or controlled by an entity or person on, the U.S. Department of Treasury list of Specially Designated Nationals or any similar list in place in any jurisdiction where Customer is conducting business; (c) is not located in or organized under the laws of a country subject to U.S. or E.U. trade embargo (collectively, “Restricted Persons”); (d) will take all such steps as prudent to ensure that it will not provide Product to Restricted Persons; and (e) will not use the Product, or allow them to be used, for any purposes prohibited by applicable Sanction Laws, including nuclear, chemical, or biological weapons proliferation, or development of missile technology.

  7. In order to preserve the integrity of the network, Podsystem reserves the right to request the Customer to change the firmware of their device so that it does not stop and start authentication requests and/or data session requests (including retries) more than on average 30 times per hour over any consecutive 12 hour period.
