2.1 With effect from the Commencement Date, and in consideration of the payment of the Charges by the Customer, CHALLENGER agrees to supply the Services and/or sell the Sale Equipment to the Customer in accordance with these Conditions.
2.2 The Contract shall commence on the Commencement Date and shall continue for the Minimum Term and thereafter shall continue subject to either the Customer or CHALLENGER giving 30 days’ notice of termination in writing to the other party.
2.3 In the event that the Customer engages CHALLENGER in respect of any Additional Service during the Term from time to time, then the term of all of the current Services at that time shall be extended until the Minimum Term of the Additional Service and thereafter shall continue and be terminable collectively as per clause 2.2.
2.4 Clauses 2.5 to 2.13 (inclusive) shall apply only if the Customer is contracting as a “consumer” (as defined by regulation 4 of the Regulations).
2.5 Subject to any other provisions in these Conditions and only if the Customer is contracting as a consumer, the Customer may terminate the Contract by serving notice in writing on CHALLENGER in the form below (or by clearly otherwise stating that it intends to terminate the Contract) within 14 days of the Commencement Date, or, in the case of Sale Equipment or Services including Equipment, within 14 days of the date on which such Equipment or Sales Equipment comes into the physical possession of the Customer (i.e. a ‘cooling off’ period), and no Early Termination Fee shall be payable. If the Customer provides such notice, CHALLENGER will reimburse all payments made by the Customer (other than non-standard delivery charges of any Equipment or Sales Equipment), unless clauses 2.8, 2.11 or 2.12 are applicable. For the avoidance of doubt, if the Customer wishes to terminate the Contract in respect of an Additional Service they may do so within 14 days of CHALLENGER accepting the order of such Additional Service, but said notice of termination shall only serve to terminate that particular Additional Service and specifically does not terminate the Contract and the other on-going Services being provided to the Customer at that time.

(b) in relation to Equipment or Sale Equipment, within 14 days of CHALLENGER taking physical possession of the Equipment or Sale Equipment.
2.14 If the Contract requires equipment or a subscription to be ordered or procured from a third party services provider by CHALLENGER, and the third party services provider rejects such order or subscription by CHALLENGER, then CHALLENGER shall be entitled to terminate the Contract with immediate effect by giving written notice to the Customer, in accordance with clause 11.1(m).

CHALLENGER may, without limiting its other rights or remedies, set off any amount owing to it by the Customer against any amount payable by CHALLENGER to the Customer.
7.7 Upon 28 days’ notice or as much notice as is reasonably practicable in the circumstances, CHALLENGER reserves the right to pass on any price increases (in its Charges) to the Customer where such change arises as a consequence of changes imposed by third parties, including third party manufacturers or suppliers or a regulatory body for example. This clause 7.7 shall include changes that occur as a result of Brexit, including any aspect of the Services that becomes more expensive for CHALLENGER to provide, for reasons of currency fluctuations, trade tariffs or otherwise.
7.8 If the Contract requires equipment or a subscription to be ordered or procured from a third party services provider by CHALLENGER, CHALLENGER reserves the right to pass on any disbursements, expenses or additional charges to the Customer where such costs are imposed on CHALLENGER by such third party services provider in relation to the Equipment or Service.
7.9 The Customer is urged to regularly check the amounts and frequency of payments made to CHALLENGER. In the event that there has been some form of overcharging by CHALLENGER then the Customer is only permitted to reclaim 6 months’ worth of overcharging from the point of notifying CHALLENGER of such error. In the event of adding any Additional Services or renewing any of the Services then the right to reclaim any previous overcharging is irrevocably waived and released at that point.
7.10 If the Customer does not pay invoices by way of direct debit, CHALLENGER will add a fee of £3 onto each invoice sent to the Customer. Such fee may be increased by CHALLENGER at any time upon 28 days’ notice.
7.11 CHALLENGER may charge the Customer a cancellation charge if an appointment for installation or maintenance or any other reason is agreed with CHALLENGER or a third party services provider but, for reasons outside CHALLENGER’s control, CHALLENGER or the relevant third party services provider are unable to gain access to the Site, the work is unable to be carried out, the appointment is cancelled by the Customer or the appointment is otherwise broken. Such charge shall be reasonable but if CHALLENGER incurs any such charge from a third party services provider, such charge will be passed on to the Customer and will always be regarded as reasonable.

CHALLENGER shall recommence provision of the Services as soon as reasonably practicable following the Customer’s fulfilment of its payment obligations (in respect of all of the Services).

8.6 During any period of suspension of the Services:
8.6.1 CHALLENGER shall not be responsible for the provision of the suspended Services or for any requirements or service levels not being met (save to the extent that CHALLENGER’s failure to comply with the other terms of the Contract or to provide the Services which are not suspended adversely affects provision of the suspended Services); and
8.6.2 the Customer shall not pay any Charges in respect of the suspended Services, unless the suspension was due to the Customer’s breach of its obligations under the Contract.
8.7 Any period of suspension of the Services may be to such extent and of such duration as CHALLENGER may reasonably specify.

1.3 CHALLENGER will be responsible for all software updates to the Platform and will inform the Customer of any major changes.
1.4 Where CHALLENGER provides IP telephony CPE equipment will be tested and verified as compatible with the Services.

2. USE OF SERVICE(S)

2.1 To enable use of the Services the Customer requires a suitable data connection in order to ensure service compatibility and premium voice quality. A CHALLENGER data connection is recommended. CHALLENGER cannot agree to any service levels for the Services where data connectivity is being provided by a third party.
2.2 To enable use of the Services the Customer will be required to purchase compatible hardware to the minimum recommended specification, or utilise the provided software. CHALLENGER cannot provide service levels for the service when hardware/software not provided by CHALLENGER is being used.

2.5 If a geographic number is not available, CHALLENGER may issue the Customer with a non-geographic number.
2.6 The service can be used to make emergency 999 calls. In order to connect the Customer’s 999/112 call to the emergency services CHALLENGER is required to pass on the Customer’s location information (address and caller line identification number) to the “National Emergency Location” information database. This is so CHALLENGER can provide the Customer’s whereabouts in instances where the Customer is unable to do so. It is the Customer’s responsibility to provide CHALLENGER with the correct address details. By default CHALLENGER will add the Customer’s main billing address to CHALLENGER’s emergency services register which will mean that on making a 999 call the emergency services will have a default location. This will also ensure that the call is flagged as being a VoIP call so that the emergency services operator will ask the caller to confirm their current location.

3. CHARGES

Any installation charges, on-going rental charges and Equipment charges will be as set out in the Order. These Charges apply as soon as the VoIP solution is installed and is functioning.

4. CONTRACT TERM

The Minimum Term of the Contract is a period to be determined between CHALLENGER and the Customer in the Order or as otherwise agreed in writing between the parties.

Porting a number in from another provider will usually take up to 10 Business Days when porting from a single analogue line, and usually up to 20 Business Days when porting from an ISDN30, however the Customer acknowledges it may take longer.
5.3 The target times in this paragraph 5 shall not be of the essence of the Contract.

6. SERVICE AVAILABILITY AND PERFORMANCE

6.1 CHALLENGER aims to provide a continuous and high quality service, however there may be occasions out of CHALLENGER’s control which could result in loss of service or reduced voice quality, for example, the weather, power disruptions, or failures of the Customer’s internet service provider (ISP) or broadband connection. The Customer should also understand that in such circumstances all services (including 999/112 public emergency call services) will also be unavailable.
6.2 Where the components of the service are outside of CHALLENGER’s direct control, CHALLENGER cannot make any guarantees on the availability or performance of this service.

7. SUPPORT LEVELS AND FAULT RESOLUTION

7.1 CHALLENGER always aims to repair a service affecting fault within 1 Business Day wherever it is reasonably possible to do so. The redundancy built into the underlying components of Hosted VoIP means that, in many cases, faults can be resolved in a much shorter space of time.
7.2 Fault resolution is measured from the time when CHALLENGER first detects the fault or is notified of it by the Customer, to the time when CHALLENGER informs the Customer of the resolution via email or phone call.
7.3 Whilst CHALLENGER aims to use all reasonable endeavours to avoid any downtime on Hosted VoIP, some faults may relate to network services provided to CHALLENGER by a third party and hence are outside of CHALLENGER’s direct control.
7.4 Some engineering visits either by CHALLENGER or their agents may be chargeable. Any charges will be detailed before the engineer is booked.

8. EXCLUSIONS

8.1 Where connectivity and/or equipment is provided by an alternative provider, CHALLENGER is not responsible for loss of service or disruption for voice quality.
8.2 Where the Customer has not maintained a secure password, CHALLENGER is not responsible for loss of any kind.
8.3 CHALLENGER is not able to guarantee the transfer of telephone numbers to other service providers should the Customer wish to cancel the Services. This is dependent on holding a porting agreement with the new provider in question.
