TCQ Internet Corporation Service Agreement


TCQ Internet Corporation ("TCQ Internet") is a Minnesota corporation offering Internet access and related services ("Service"). By using the Service, TCQ Internet and each subscribing user ("You" or "Subscriber") agree to accept, and be legally bound by, the terms and conditions of this Agreement and confirms that the Subscriber is 18 years of age or older. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO BE BOUND TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT, YOU SHOULD NOT USE THE SERVICE, OR DISCONTINUE USING THE SERVICE IMMEDIATELY UPON RECEIPT OF THIS AGREEMENT, AND YOU MUST NOTIFY TCQ INTERNET TO CANCEL YOUR ACCOUNT. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Minnesota.

PAYMENT OBLIGATIONS: You agree to pay all charges for use of the Service at the prices then in effect. TCQ Internet reserves the right to change prices and implement new charges by providing you with not less than thirty (30) days notice of the intent to do so. Continued use of the Service, or non-termination, after notification of changes in pricing constitutes your acceptance of the changes. Payment of services is due in our office by the due date indicated on the invoice. Your use of the Service reaffirms that TCQ Internet is authorized to charge your designated credit card or automated funds transfer account, if applicable. You must immediately notify TCQ Internet: a) of changes to your billing address; b) of changes to your designated credit card account number or expiration date; c) of changes to your designated automated funds transfer account number; d) if your designated credit card or automated funds transfer account is canceled. TCQ Internet reserves the right to suspend or cancel this Agreement and your use of the Service without notice upon rejection of any check, credit card charges, automated funds transfers or if your credit card issuer seeks a return of payments which TCQ Internet believes you are liable for. Suspended and canceled accounts are subject to a reactivation fee. Any disputed charges must be brought to the attention of TCQ Internet within thirty (30) days of the invoice date. 

LATE/RETURNED PAYMENT CHARGES: You agree to pay a late charge and all amounts due which remain unpaid for thirty (30) days after the invoice due date. The late charge will equal eighteen percent (18%) per annum calculated monthly at 1.5%, on the total amount due but not paid, until paid. If such rate is in excess of the allowable rate, then the late charge will equal the maximum rate allowed by law. If any check, direct payment from your checking or savings account or credit card payment received in payment of your account is returned by your financial institution as unpaid, your account will be subject to a returned payment fee of $20.00, along with such other amount as may be authorized under Minnesota law. 

DEFAULT: If you fail to pay any charges within thirty (30) days of the invoice date, or if you fail to perform any obligation under this Agreement, or if any insolvency or bankruptcy proceeding shall be commenced by or against you, or if you make an assignment for the benefit of creditors, or if you otherwise breach the Agreement, TCQ Internet shall have the right, but not be obligated, to exercise all remedies available in law or inequity, including, but not limited to, one or more of the following remedies: a) to terminate the Agreement as to all or any Service to you; b) to collect all moneys then due; c) to collect the balance due under this contractual agreement; d) to collect from you all costs incurred in collecting all amounts due hereunder on a judgment from you, including, but not limited to, reasonable attorney's fees.

TERM/RENEWAL/TERMINATION: The subscription period shall be for the period of time selected by you and reflected on the invoice. After the initial subscription period, the subscription shall automatically renew for the same period of time as the initial subscription period, unless you deliver written notice of cancellation or a change of subscription period. Either you or TCQ Internet may terminate this Agreement and your use of the Service at any time, with or without cause, upon prior notice. TCQ Internet reserves the right, at any time, to limit or terminate this Agreement and your use of the service without advance notice, unless we are required to give you notice under applicable law. Requests for cancellation of service must be made to TCQ Internet prior to the end of the current subscription period to avoid billing of the next term.

REFUNDS: Upon termination of a Service subscription, refunds for the time remaining on paid subscriptions shall be prorated on a monthly basis, except for payments made for materials, setup fees and/or the first month of service. If the termination results in a subscription period that is less than the Subscriber rate requires, the refund will be lessened by the difference in rates for the service period received and the rate initially provided to the Subscriber. Payments made for materials, setup fees and the first month of service are not refundable.

ACCESS CHARGES: Local access numbers may not be available in all areas. You are solely responsible for determining if the use of a particular access number will cause you to incur long distance, toll or other charges. TCQ Internet is not responsible for any long distance, toll or other charges you incur.

ACCOUNT SECURITY AND USAGE: You, and only you, are provided with the unique username and password combination that provides you with access to the Service. You agree to be held completely responsible for any and all usage of the Service, including any and all usage by others who use the Service under your account, and you agree to be completely responsible for all charges resulting from use of your TCQ Internet account. You may allow household members to use your TCQ Internet account, provided you agree to pay all charges they incur and to be responsible for all other aspects of their usage. You acknowledge that some areas of the Internet may contain material that is unsuitable for minors and you agree to supervise usage by minors whom use your TCQ Internet account. You may be granted space on TCQ Internet's equipment for the storage of e-mail, a website or other files. This space is restricted based on the service purchased, and TCQ Internet reserves the right to remove any information that exceeds the allowed amount. Only TCQ Internet users are entitled to storage on TCQ Internet's equipment. TCQ Internet reserves the right to terminate any account which results in excessive network bandwidth utilization as determined by TCQ Internet.

UNLIMITED USAGE: TCQ Internet may offer services that provide "unlimited" access. These services are intended for periodic, attended and active use of the Internet. You may stay connected so long as you are actively using the connection for the above purpose. You may not use the Service on a standby, unattended or inactive basis. Accordingly, TCQ Internet reserves the right to terminate any connection following either any extended period of inactivity or any extended period of connection as determined by TCQ Internet.

REFERRAL SERVICE CREDIT: As a subscriber, you may earn a referral service credit for referring first-time subscribers to TCQ Internet if a referral program is in place at the time the subscriber you refer signs up for service. The subscriber your refer must mention your username when signing up in order for you to receive this credit. The credit will be applied to your account after the subscriber you refer has completed two months of service with TCQ Internet. This credit has no cash value and if your service or the service of the subscriber you refer is canceled prior to the aforementioned two month period, you will not receive the credit. No credit is available for referrals of current and/or prior TCQ Internet subscribers.

UNACCEPTABLE USE OF SERVICE: You are responsible for any and all use of the Service under your account. TCQ Internet reserves the right to remove any materials that may be illegal or subject TCQ Internet to liability or violate this Agreement. The use of the Service for the following purposes constitute a violation of this Agreement and may result in the suspension and/or termination of your account: a) sending, or receiving responses to, unsolicited, bulk e-mail; b) sending e-mail with the intent of obscuring the source of the e-mail; c) any activity that adversely affects the availability of Internet services to any user; d) maintaining an unattended, dial-up connection; e) establishing multiple, simultaneous connections under one account; f) intercepting or attempting to intercept e-mail; g) attempting to access the accounts or data of others; h) infringing upon the copyright and/or trademark rights by uploading, e-mailing or posting files that contain copyrighted or trademarked works; i) publishing, posting or distributing defamatory, infringing, obscene or other unlawful material or information; j) threatening, harassing, abusing or otherwise violating the legal rights, including the rights of privacy and publicity, of others; k) making fraudulent offers to sell or buy products, items or services or to advance any type of financial scam such as "pyramid schemes"; l) reselling of TCQ Internet services without prior written consent; m) any other use that violates any applicable laws or regulations. 

PRIVACY: The name, address and payment information you provide to TCQ Internet, together with information regarding the manner in which you use TCQ Internet and/or the Internet, will not be disclosed to any third party, except as required to process payment for services or as required by law.

ASSIGNMENT OR TRANSFER: Your account may not be assigned or transferred to another person or party without the prior written consent of TCQ Internet.

YOUR USE OF TCQ INTERNET AND ALL TCQ INTERNET SOFTWARE AND SERVICES IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. YOU ASSUME FULL RESPONSIBILITY AND RISK OF LOSS RESULTING FROM YOUR DOWNLOADING AND/OR USE OF FILES OR OTHER MATERIAL OBTAINED THROUGH TCQ INTERNET. 

TCQ INTERNET SERVICES ARE PROVIDED ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS. YOU AGREE THAT TCQ INTERNET WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES (INCLUDING CONSEQUENTIAL OR SPECIAL DAMAGES) ARISING OUT OF YOUR USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE TCQ INTERNET OR ANY TCQ INTERNET SOFTWARE OR SERVICES, OR THE ACTIONS OR INACTIONS OF ANY THIRD PARTY, AND YOU HEREBY WAIVE ANY CLAIMS WITH RESPECT THERETO, WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACTUAL, TORT OR OTHER GROUNDS, EVEN IF TCQ INTERNET HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF DAMAGES.
