Liabilities of TSC

  1. Except as stated in this section, TSC shall have no liability for damages of any kind arising out of or related to events, acts, rights or privileges contemplated through acceptance of the service.
  2. The liability of TSC for damages resulting in whole or in part from or arising in connection with the furnishing of Service under this Document, including, but not limited to, mistakes, omissions, interruptions, delays, errors or other defects or misrepresentations shall not exceed an amount equal to the charges under this Document applicable to the specific call (or portion thereof) that was affected. No other liability shall attach to TSC.

Charges and Payments for Service or Facilities

  1. TSC may, in order to safeguard its interests, require Customers to make a suitable deposit as a guarantee of the payment of charges.
  2. Any deposit as referred to in this Section shall be held by TSC to secure the payment of the Customer's bill. At TSC's option, the deposit may be refunded or credited to the Customer at any time prior to the termination of Service.
  3. The fact that a deposit is made does not relieve the Customer from making advance payments or from complying with TSC's regulations for the payment of bills in accordance with the terms herein and does not constitute a waiver or modification of the regulations of TSC providing for the discontinuance of Service for nonpayment of any sums due TSC for Service rendered.
  4. Upon termination of Service any remaining deposit amounts will be credited to the Customer's account and any credit balance will be refunded after all amounts due TSC have been paid.
  5. Service is provided and billed on a monthly basis. Service continues to be provided and billed on a monthly basis until cancelled by the Customer through notice given to TSC.
  6. When a Local Exchange Carrier (LEC) performs billing functions, commercial credit card company or others, the payment conditions and requirements of such LECs apply, including any applicable interest.
  7. In the event a Local Exchange Carrier, commercial credit card company or others ceases efforts to collect any amounts associated with TSC's charges, TSC may bill the Customer or the called party directly, and may utilize its own billing and collection procedures which shall be consistent with all applicable statutes, rules and regulations.
  8. In addition to all recurring, non-recurring, minimum, usage, surcharges or special charges, the Customer identified in this Document shall also be responsible for and shall pay all ap­plicable federal, state and local taxes or surcharges, including sales, use, excise, gross earnings, and gross income taxes. All such taxes shall be separately shown and charged on bills rendered by Company or its billing agent pursuant to applicable rules or laws. Sales and use taxes shall be applied to all charges and shall also be applied to all applicable gross earnings, gross revenue and gross income taxes.
  9. Payment will be due as specified on the Customer bill. Commencing after that due date, a late charge of up to the highest interest rate allowable by law will be applied to all amounts past due.
  10. Collection procedures and the require­ment for a deposit are unaffected by the application of a late payment charge. The late payment charge does not apply to unpaid balances associated with dis­puted amounts. Undisputed amounts on the same bill are subject to the late payment charge if unpaid and carried forward to the next bill.
  11. Service may be denied or discontinued at TSC's discretion for nonpayment of amounts due TSC past the due date as specified in here. Restoration of Service will be subject to all applicable installation charges.
  12. In cases where TSC issues direct bills to Customers, and payment by check is re­turned for insufficient funds, or is otherwise not processed for payment, there will be a charge of $20 or the maximum amount allowed by law, whichever is less. Such charge will be applicable on each occasion when a check is returned or not processed.
  13. In the event of nonpayment of any bill rendered or any required deposit, TSC may, after written notice, suspend Service to the Customer.
  14. Credit for failure of Service will be allowed only when failure is caused by or occurs in TSC's facilities or equipment owned, provided and billed for by TSC.
  15. Credit allowances for failure of Serv­ice or equipment starts when the Cus­tomer notifies TSC of the failure and ceases when the operation has been restored and an attempt has been made to notify the Customer by TSC.
  16. Only those portions of the Service or equipment operation disabled will be credited.
