8. EMERGENCY CALLS
8.1 CLOUDCALL will provide the Customer with the ability to make emergency 911 calls as part of the Services. It is the Customer’s responsibility to ensure that address information is updated with CLOUDCALL for each of the users within that organisation. Address information may be updated using the CLOUDCALL web portal.
8.2 In circumstances where the Customer is using a VoIP Phone in conjunction with the Services the following terms apply:
(a) Enhanced 911 Versus Basic or Limited E911. VoIP 911 Dialing (“911 Dialing”) is different from traditional 911 service. VoIP Customers have access to either basic 911 or Enhanced 911 (“Enhanced E911”) service, depending on the capability of their emergency center.
(i) Enhanced E911 Service. With Enhanced E911 service, when a VoIP Customer dials 911, the telephone number and registered address is simultaneously sent to the local emergency center assigned to Customer’s location, and emergency operators have access to the information they need to send help and call back if necessary.
(ii) Basic and Limited E911 Service. VoIP Customers in locations where the emergency center is not equipped to receive, capture or retain the caller’s telephone number and/or address have basic 911 or limited E911. With basic 911 or limited E911, the local emergency operator answering the call may not have a call back number or the VoIP caller’s exact location, so the VoIP caller must be prepared to give this information. Until the VoIP caller gives the operator a phone number, the operator may not be able to call the VoIP caller back or dispatch help if the call is dropped or disconnected, or if the VoIP caller is unable to speak.
(iii) As additional local emergency centers upgrade to Enhanced E911 and become capable of receiving all of a VoIP Customers’ information, CLOUDCALL will automatically upgrade Customers with basic or limited 911 to Enhanced E911 service. CLOUDCALL will not give notice of the upgrade.
(iv) By using CLOUDCALL’s service, Customer authorizes CLOUDCALL to disclose Customer’s telephone number, name and address to third-parties involved with providing 911 Dialing to Customer, including, without limitation, call routers, call centers and local emergency centers.
(b) Customer Must Notify All Users that 911 Dialing is different than traditional 911 Service. Customer shall inform all employees, guests and other third persons who may be present at the physical location where Customer utilizes CLOUDCALL’s service of the important differences in and limitations of CLOUDCALL’s 911 Dialing as compared with basic 911 or Enhanced E911. The documentation provided by third parties that accompanies each VoIP device enabled for service (the “Device” or “Devices”) should include a sticker concerning the potential non-availability of basic 911 or Enhanced E911 (the “911 Sticker”). It is Customer’s responsibility, in accordance with the instructions that accompany each Device, to place the 911 Sticker on each Device that is used with the Service. If Customer did not receive a 911 Sticker with its Devices, or requires additional 911 Stickers, Customer must contact its VoIP vendor to obtain the same.
(c) Customer Must Register the Location of its Physical Address. For each VoIP phone line and telephone number that Customer utilizes with the CLOUDCALL service, Customer must register with CLOUDCALL the physical location where Customer or its Users will be using the CLOUDCALL service with that phone number. Customer’s initial location will be registered as a part of subscribing to the CLOUDCALL service. It is incumbent on Customer to confirm the accuracy of the physical address recorded for Customer, and if Customer has any changes, additions or transfers of phone numbers, Customer shall must notify CLOUDCALL immediately by calling +1 617 982 1600 or through the CLOUDCALL web portal. CLOUDCALL is providing a VoIP trunking solution for businesses intended strictly for use at the physical address of the business. Users who are residential users or who have nomadic equipment or phones where the calling location changes as the Device moves to another location may not use CLOUDCALL’s service. If you are a residential user or nomadic user who attempts to make unauthorized use of CLOUDCALL’s service from the new location, 911 calls made will be sent to an emergency center near the old address.
(d) Outages May Disrupt the CLOUDCALL Service and/or E911 Dialing.
(i) Service Outages due to Power Failure or Disruption. 911 Dialing does not function in the event of a power failure or disruption. If there is an interruption in the power supply, the CLOUDCALL service, including 911 Dialing, will not function until power is restored. Following a power failure or disruption, Customer may need to reset or reconfigure the Device prior to utilizing the CLOUDCALL service, including 911 Dialing.
(ii) Service Outages Due to Internet Outage or Suspension or Disconnection of Broadband Service or Internet Service Provider (“ISP”) Service. Service outages or suspensions or disconnections of service by the underlying broadband provider or ISP will prevent all CLOUDCALL service, including 911 Dialing, from functioning.
(iv) Service Outage Due to Disconnection of Customer’s CLOUDCALL Account. Service outages due to disconnection of the Customer Account will prevent all CLOUDCALL service, including 911 Dialing, from functioning.
(v) Service Outages Due to Customer Premise Equipment, ISP or Broadband Provider Blocking of Ports or Other Acts. Customer’s firewall, Internet service provider, broadband provider or other third party may intentionally or inadvertently block the ports over which the CLOUDCALL service is provided or otherwise impede the usage of the CLOUDCALL service. If Customer suspects this has happened, Customer should alert CLOUDCALL to this situation and CLOUDCALL will attempt to resolve the issue. During the period that the ports are being blocked or CLOUDCALL service is impeded, the CLOUDCALL Service, including 911 Dialing, may not function. Customer acknowledges that CLOUDCALL is not responsible for the blocking of ports by any firewall or third party or any other impediment to Customer’s usage of the CLOUDCALL service, and any loss of CLOUDCALL service, including 911 Dialing, which may result. In the event Customer loses service as a result of blocking of ports or any other impediment to usage of the CLOUDCALL service, Customer will continue to be responsible for payment for the Charges unless and until Customer disconnects the CLOUDCALL service in accordance with the terms of this Contract
(e) Other Service Outages. If there is a service outage for any reason, such outage will prevent all CLOUDCALL service, including 911 Dialing, from functioning. Such outages may occur for a variety of reasons, including, but not limited to, those reasons described elsewhere in this policy.
(f) Network Congestion May Reduce Speed of Routing or Answering 911 Dialing Calls. There may be a greater possibility of network congestion and/or reduced speed in the routing of a 911 Dialing call made utilizing the CLOUDCALL service as compared to traditional 911 Dialing over traditional public telephone networks.
(g) Changes to Address or Use of a Non-Native Number May Cause Delays in Assistance. Address changes through the process described in clause 12.1 above require processing, and delays in updating to the new address in an applicable automatic location information (ALI) database my impair or restrict the ability of emergency personnel to help Users. Customer should allow at least 48 hours for the ALI database to update before the new address will be available to emergency personnel, where available. In addition, if a User moves to a location that uses a different area code, exchange or other number system from the telephone number that has been assigned to Customer, processing an emergency call may be delayed by a local emergency center.
(h) Disclaimer of Liability and Indemnification. CLOUDCALL does not have any control over whether, or the manner in which, calls using CLOUDCALL’s 911 Dialing service are answered or addressed by any local emergency response center. CLOUDCALL disclaims any and all responsibility for the conduct of local emergency response centers. CLOUDCALL relies on third parties to assist it in routing 911 Dialing calls to local emergency response centers. CLOUDCALL disclaims any and all liability or responsibility in the event such third party data used to route calls is incorrect or yields an erroneous result. None of CLOUDCALL, its affiliates, or any of their partners, shareholders, members, directors, managers, officers, employees or agents may be held liable for any claim, cause of action, damage, loss, liability, expense, cost, fee, charge, or penalty, and by using the CLOUDCALL service and Customer hereby waives any and all such claims, causes of action, damages, losses, liabilities, expenses, costs, fees, charges, or penalties, arising from or relating to CLOUDCALL’s 911 Dialing service unless such claims, causes of action, damages, losses, liabilities, expenses, costs, fees, charges, or penalties arose solely from CLOUDCALL’s gross negligence or willful misconduct. Customer shall defend, indemnify, and hold harmless CLOUDCALL, its affiliates, all of their partners, shareholders, members, directors, managers, officers, employees and agents, and any other service provider who furnishes services to Customer or its Users in connection with the CLOUDCALL service, from any and all claims, causes of action, damages, losses, liabilities, expenses, costs, fees, charges, or penalties (including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees) by, or on behalf of, Customer, User or any third party relating to the absence, failure or outage of the CLOUDCALL service, including 911 Dialing, incorrectly routed 911 Dialing calls, and/or the inability of any user of the CLOUDCALL service to be able to use 911 Dialing or access emergency service personnel.
(i) Customer May Want to Make Alternate 911 Arrangements or Choose Not to Use CLOUDCALL Service. If Customer or its Users are not comfortable with the limitations of the 911 Dialing service, they should consider having an alternate means of accessing traditional 911 or E911 services or disconnecting the CLOUDCALL service.
9.1 The Customer shall take all reasonable precautions to ensure that all usernames and passwords for accessing the Services are kept confidential and secure.
9.2 If the Customer believes that any Customer username or password has become known to somebody not authorised by the Customer to use it, or if any password is being or is likely to be used in an unauthorised way, the Customer must immediately inform CLOUDCALL.
