(a) Customer violates (or gives CallTrackingMetrics reason to believe it has violated) any provision of these Terms;

When this happens, past call data and reports will still be accessible up to a period of 60 days, but tracking numbers will be released as they come up for renewal and phone calls will no longer be active. Any numbers that come up for renewal while the Available Balance does not have funds in it will be released.

8.5 After canceling an account, the Available Balance will be preserved for when/if the Customer reactivates the account. If Customer would like to request a refund of the Available Balance, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
While not guaranteed, CallTrackingMetrics is generally able to refund any unused funds in the Available Balance upon cancellation provided the account is in good standing and the transactions funding the Available Balance have occurred within the past 3 months. Refunds can only be processed back to the card that was used to fund the Available Balance. For refunds in excess of $500, bank transaction fees will be withheld from any refunds– US fees are 4%, International fees are 5.5%
8.6. If Customer has elected to sign up for a pre-paid 12 month subscription plan or another type of annual commitment, the account can be cancelled but no refunds will be given for unused portion of the annual term.
8.7 When cancelling a monthly add on license such as “Chat” , the Customer will still be able to use the associated license through the end of the current billing cycle- unless they are also cancelling the associated Account (in which case, they will no longer be able to use “Chat”).
- Price and Payment:
9.1 Account Available Balance: In order to start using CallTrackingMetrics service, Customer will need to select a subscription plan and pay the respective monthly fee upfront for the first 30 days of service AND add money to the Account Available Balance to fund usage. The Customer chooses how much to initially add to the Available Balance and at what point it should automatically recharge.
Thereafter, the fees for phone numbers, the per minute charges for minutes used, the per text message rates for text messages sent or received, and any other usage fees for services (e.g. premium Caller ID, keyword spotting, additional calls per second capacity, transcription services, form completions etc ) will all be deducted from the Available Balance.
9.2 Customer grants CallTrackingMetrics the right to charge the primary or secondary credit cards in their Account for all fees incurred under this policy.
9.3 Each subscription plan has an associated monthly fee. The monthly fee for the chosen subscription plan will be charged to the Customer’s credit card every 30 days. The term of the service for that plan is for an initial period of 30 days and will thereafter automatically renew for successive 30-day periods. The plan will continue to renew until Customer cancels the Account by going to the “account settings” or “agency settings” page. In the case of an agency plan, the monthly subscription fee will continue to be charged to the Customer until the agency has been cancelled (cancelling just the sub-accounts does not stop the monthly subscription fee from being charged).
9.4 Customers can elect to sign up for a pre-paid 12 month subscription plan. In those plans, the monthly software fee is discounted and paid up front by the Customer for a 12 month period. The term for those plans automatically renew for successive 365 days periods. Customers on these annual plans can cancel by notifying our support team at least 30 days in advance of the renewal date. Customers can cancel these annual plans at any time but no refunds will be given for unused portion of the annual term.
9.5 Tracking Numbers: Each tracking number purchased is valid for 30 days of service and will thereafter automatically renew for successive additional 30-day periods. The monthly renewal fee for the number will be deducted from the available balance. Customer can cancel a tracking number by releasing it on the edit tracking number page.
9.6 Per Minute Charges: For clarification and without limitation to which plan has been selected, CallTrackingMetrics shall bill for all minutes of usage for each call from the instant a call is initiated by, or connected to, the CallTrackingMetrics network to the instant all parties to such call are disconnected. Call duration calculations will be rounded up to the nearest minute. The per minute rates shown on the pricing and signup page apply to the standard rate center for each country that matches the purchased tracking number. Actual per minute rates may be higher depending on the rate center of the receiving number. Customer can check the exact per minute rate of their receiving number rate center lookup here: https://www.calltrackingmetrics.com/rates
9.7 Licenses: Customers can choose to add on licenses to their account to use services such as “Chat”. These licenses renew every 30 days, at which point the monthly license fee is charged to the Customers credit card (not through the account available balance). If the Customer has multiple licenses renewing on the same day, they will be grouped into one charge on the Customer’s credit card.
9.8 Collections: If CallTrackingMetrics requires use of collection agencies, attorneys, or courts of law for collection on the account, Customer will be responsible for those expenses. Customer will be responsible for all use, sales, and other taxes imposed on the Services provided under this policy.
9.9 Pricing Changes: CallTrackingMetrics may change any portion of the fees by posting the changes to the Sites or otherwise notifying customers of the change, such changes to take effect at the beginning of the next period of service.
9.10 Disputed Charges: Billing disputes must be submitted within 30 days of the applicable billing date or are deemed waived. Disputes shall be considered in the order received and are subject to determination in the sole judgment of CallTrackingMetrics. If a valid, settled transaction is disputed through the processing bank as a “chargeback” and thus the transaction is reversed, the amount of that transaction will be deducted from the current available balance of the corresponding account AND a $50 processing fee will be applied to the account. Please take care to not dispute valid transactions.
9.11 Use of Secondary Carrier: Customers may request tracking numbers that are not available through our primary carrier. These numbers may have different monthly and per minute rates than the standard rates for the plan. Customer will be notified of these differences prior to CallTrackingMetrics procuring the number and customer needs to agree in writing to ok the difference.
10.1 Unless otherwise stated, the Customer shall be responsible for maintaining an accurate Service Address for their Account and shall pay all Taxes imposed on or with respect to the CallTrackingMetrics Services that are the subject of this Agreement whether such Taxes are imposed directly upon the Customer or upon CallTrackingMetrics. “Taxes” mean all applicable federal, state and local taxes, fees, charges, carrier surcharges or other similar exactions, including, without limitation, sales and use taxes, communications service taxes, utility user’s taxes or fees, excise taxes, any other license or business and occupations taxes, 911 taxes, franchise fees and universal service fund fees or taxes.
10.2 For purposes of this Section, Taxes do not include any Taxes that are imposed on or measured by CallTrackingMetrics net income, property tax, or payroll taxes.
10.3 If a Customer is exempt from any such Taxes for any reason, we will exempt them from such Taxes on a going-forward basis once we receive a duly executed and dated valid exemption certificate to our tax department and our tax department has approved such exemption certificate. Such exemptions should be sent directly to email@example.com. If for any reason a taxing jurisdiction determines that the Customer is not exempt from any such exempted Taxes and then assesses us such Taxes, the Customer agrees to promptly pay to CallTrackingMetrics such Taxes, plus any applicable interest or penalties assessed.

12. Account Authorization:
New accounts go through an authorization process which restricts usage in the account temporarily as we verify the information provided during the sign up process. We try and expedite this process as quickly as possible but it can take several days. Customers will receive emails if their account activity is being restricted due to the authorization process. When necessary, we will reach out to the Customer to request additional information needed to fully authorize an account.

If CallTrackingMetrics determines that a Customer is requesting an excessive amount of time from General Support, CallTrackingMetrics may rate limit the number of inquiries responded to from that Customer or refuse service.

15.12 General Support inquiries can be answered by a variety of agents on the team. Customers cannot select or request to only work with particular agents.

Customers are responsible for their hardware and its use with CallTrackingMetrics. Customers are solely responsible for supporting computer hardware and telephone devices when that hardware and those devices are deemed faulty by CallTrackingMetrics support agents or engineers.
16. Telephone Numbers:
16.1 CallTrackingMetrics will use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain the telephone number(s) requested, and use commercially reasonable efforts to initiate and complete port requests.

If porting a number away from CallTrackingMetrics, it is the Customer’s responsibility to confirm the completion of a port away request with the winning carrier and release the tracking numbers from their Account.
16.4 Any attempts to use CallTrackingMetrics merely a source of numbers to be immediately ported away without use of the numbers on our system is not permitted and is grounds for Termination.

17. Call Recording:
CallTrackingMetrics makes available technology that offers the ability to record incoming telephone calls. When a calling party initiates a call to a tracking phone number, CallTrackingMetrics will, at the Customer’s discretion, create a digital audio recording of the telephone call. CallTrackingMetrics provides the ability to play a customizable voice message at the beginning of each call to either or both parties (calling party and called party) announcing that the call will be recorded.
If Customer chooses to record telephone calls, they expressly agree and acknowledge that:
1) They authorize CallTrackingMetrics to make incoming call recordings on their behalf and
2) They either: 1. Authorize CallTrackingMetrics to play a voice message advising the caller that the call is being recorded prior to the call being connected to the party answering the call; OR 2.
