The following Terms of Service, including any schedules hereto and any terms incorporated herein by reference (referred to as "TOS" or "Agreement") are between you, the customer, and Olive IP. The TOS constitute a legal document that details your rights and obligations as a purchaser of Olive IP service (f/k/a Olive IP Unlimited LTE and/or Olive IP VOIP service (individually and collectively referred to as "Services").
If you purchase Olive IP VOIP service, your TOS include the General Terms of Service set forth herein, and the attached Schedule 1. Your TOS also include the Acceptance Form for Terms of Service for Purchase and Use of Olive IP services provided to you when Services are installed. Your TOS will continue to apply to your Services when they are transferred from one location to another.
PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY TO ENSURE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND EACH PROVISION. THIS AGREEMENT REQUIRES THE USE OF ARBITRATION ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS TO RESOLVE DISPUTES, RATHER THAN JURY TRIALS OR CLASS ACTIONS, AND ALSO LIMITS THE REMEDIES AVAILABLE TO YOU IN THE EVENT OF A DISPUTE.
You must accept these TOS as a condition of receiving the Services. For purposes of these TOS, "you" and "your" refer to the person purchasing the Services. "We," "our," "us," refer to Olive IP.
Olive IP will comply with all applicable federal, state and local laws, to the extent that such laws apply to Olive IP and its obligations under the TOS. If there is any conflict between the TOS and such applicable law, such applicable law controls. These conflicts could include, but are not limited to, fees and charges for service, billing and payments, notices, and your rights and remedies.

You must be an adult over the applicable age of majority (e.g., eighteen (18) years of age to purchase the Services as an individual or to accept these TOS as an authorized representative for the person or entity who purchases the Services. By accepting these TOS, you confirm you are an Adult.

If you do not agree to all of the aforementioned terms and conditions, do not use the Services, and cancel the Services immediately by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cancellations. Cancellations are processed as a non-renewal, and no pro-rated refunds or credits will be issued for service term.

Notice of cancellation must be made via self-service portal, or email email@example.com.
Service Interruption. Any service interruption of a data plan lasting more than 10 days will be considered an at-fault violation by Olive IP and absolve you from any and all early termination fees. Damaged and non-operational on-premise network equipment such as modems, antennas, routers, switches and access points, do not constitute an at-fault violation by Olive IP and do not qualify for any type of proration credit or refund.
Updates. These TOS may be updated or changed from time to time. You can review the most current version of these TOS at any time at: oliveipcom/termsofservice. If Olive IP makes a change to these TOS and that change has a material impact on the Services, you will be provided notice of that change, and such notice will be provided consistent with Notice provisions of this TOS. Your continued use of the Services following such notice constitutes your acceptance of those changes.

You will be responsible for fees and charges associated with additional Service orders. You may have an additional agreement or contract with your property owner or manager that covers any applicable special arrangement. Any such additional agreement or contract is outside these TOS and Olive IP is not responsible for nor bound by the terms of any agreement you may have with your property owner or manager. If the special arrangement with your property owner or manager terminates, you will continue receiving Service under standard billing terms and these TOS unless you notify Olive IP.

You agree that the start of your agreement begins with the activation date of your account and will continue through for the specified amount of months in the title of your product.

Olive IP may, upon notice required by applicable laws, at any time change the amount of or basis for determining any fee or charge or institute new fees or charges.

3. BILLING AND PAYMENTS
Credit Card Authorization. You may be asked to provide us with a valid email address and a credit card number from a card issuer that we accept in order to activate your Services. You hereby authorize Olive IP to charge and/or place a hold on your credit card with respect to any unpaid charges related to the Services. You authorize the issuer of the credit card to pay any amounts described herein without requiring a signed receipt, and you agree that these TOS are to be accepted as authorization to the issuer of the credit card to pay all such amounts. You authorize Olive IP and/or any other company who bills products or services, or acts as billing agent for Olive IP to continue to attempt to charge and/or place holds with respect to all sums described herein, or any portion thereof, to your credit card until such amounts are paid in full.

If you mistakenly provide a debit card number instead of a credit card number you authorize all charges described herein to be applied to such debit card unless and until you provide a credit card number. In the event you are enrolled, or later enroll, in an automatic payment or electronic funds transfer plan you authorize Olive IP to charge the account number provided for such automatic payment or electronic funds transfer plan.

Upon determination solely by Olive IP of satisfactory payment history or as required by law, Olive IP may refund the deposit or advance payment through bill credits, cash payments or as otherwise determined solely by Olive IP. Based on your creditworthiness a non-refundable fee may be required to establish service and we may require you to enroll, and remain enrolled, in an automatic payment or electronic funds transfer plan. We may establish additional limits and restrict service or features as we deem appropriate. If your account balance goes beyond the limit we set for you we may immediately interrupt or suspend service until your balance is brought below the limit. Any charges you incur in excess of your limit become immediately due.

Non-recurring and usage-based charges for the Services generally will be billed in the billing cycle following the transaction.

9. DISPUTE RESOLUTION WITH OLIVE IP BY BINDING ARBITRATION (PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.)
Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly. In the unlikely event that Olive IP's Customer Service Department is unable to resolve a complaint you may have to your satisfaction (or if Olive IP has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after attempting to do so informally), we each agree to resolve those disputes through binding arbitration or small claims court instead of in courts of general jurisdiction. Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Any arbitration under this Agreement will take place on an individual basis; class arbitration and class actions are not permitted.
Arbitration Agreement :
Olive IP and you agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between us. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. It includes, but is not limited to:
Claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory;
Claims that arose before this or any prior Agreement (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising);
Claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class; and
Claims that may arise after the termination of this Agreement.
References to "Olive IP", "you," and "us" include our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of Services under this or prior Agreements between us. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court. This arbitration agreement does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND OLIVE IP ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. This Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement.
2. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute ("Notice"). The Notice to Olive IP should be addressed to: Office for Dispute Resolution, Olive IP, 705 W. Margaret Dr. Robinson, TX 76706 ("Notice Address"). The Notice must (1) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (2) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). If Olive IP and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Olive IP may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by Olive IP or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or Olive IP is entitled.
3. The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association (" AAA"), as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at (800) 778-7879, or by writing to the Notice Address. (You may obtain information that is designed for non-lawyers about the arbitration process at alt.com/arbitration-information.) The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this agreement. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to the scope and enforceability of the arbitration provision are for the court to decide. Unless Olive IP and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in McLennan County, Texas. If your claim is for $10,000 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. Except as otherwise provided for herein, Olive IP will pay all AAA filing , administration and arbitrator fees for any arbitration initiated in accordance with the notice requirements above. If, however, the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all such fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In such case, you agree to reimburse Olive IP for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. In addition , if you initiate an arbitration in which you seek more than $75,000 in damages, the payment of these fees will be governed by the AAA rules.
a. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim. YOU AND OLIVE IP AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Olive IP agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void.
b. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if Olive IP makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to receiving Services, you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to the Arbitration Notice Address provided above.
The Services use and include certain software and/or firmware (the "Software"). Some Software resides on the Equipment.
Non-Olive IP Software, Services or Applications. Your use of the Services may also include access to and use of software, services and/or applications which interact with the Services and which are provided by non-Olive IP third parties, and, when applicable, those third-parties terms and conditions apply to your access to and use of such non-Olive IP software, services and /or applications. Olive IP is not liable to you for any loss or injury arising out of or caused, in whole or in part, by your use of any such software, services, and/or applications accessed through, or in conjunction with, the Service.
NOTICE ABOUT AUTOMATIC SOFTWARE UPGRADES. Olive IP, or its applicable third-party licensors may provide Software upgrades, updates, or supplements (such as, but not limited to, adding or removing features or updating security components). You understand and agree that Olive IP, or the applicable third-party licensor, have the unrestricted right, but not the obligation, to upgrade, update, or supplement the Software on the Equipment at any time. Although unlikely, Software upgrades, updates, or supplements could reset your Equipment and erase saved preferences and stored content.
