Customer agrees not to use the Voice Service in a manner that is actually or potentially libelous, threatening, harmful, harassing, indecent, obscene, in violation of the intellectual property rights of any party, or is otherwise unlawful under any applicable law or regulation. Customer agrees not to engage in any activity that interferes with or disrupts the Voice Service or associated servers, networks, or software; prevents or restricts other customers from using the Voice Service; or damages any Company or third party property.

- Customer Proprietary Network Information.
In the normal course of providing services to its users and customers, Company collects and maintains certain customer proprietary network information (“CPNI”) typical to the industry. CPNI includes the types of telecommunications and interconnected VoIP services Customer currently purchases or subscribes to, how Customer uses those services (for example, Customer’s calling records), and billing information related to those services. Customer’s M2Ngage telephone number, name, and address do not constitute CPNI. Company does not sell, trade, or otherwise share Customer’s CPNI with anyone outside of Company and those parties authorized to represent Company to offer Company’s services or to perform functions on Company’s behalf related to our services, except as the law may require or Customer may authorize. Federal law generally permits Company to use CPNI in its provision of the telecommunications and interconnected VoIP services Customer purchases or subscribes to, including billing and collections for those services. Company may also use or disclose Customer CPNI for legal or regulatory reasons such as to respond to a court order, to investigate fraud, to protect Company’s rights or property, to protect against the unlawful use of Company services, or to protect other users.
Customer may elect to prohibit Company’s use of Customer’s CPNI to market services other than services of the same type that Customer already purchases from Company by providing Company with Customer’s “opt-out” notice within thirty (30) calendar days of Customer’s Voice Service commencement by sending an email to VoIPSupport@m2ngage2.com stating that Customer opts out of marketing uses of its CPNI, and including the Customer name and its M2Ngage phone number(s). Please type “CPNI Opt-Out” in the subject line. If Customer fails to do so within such timeframe, Customer will be deemed to have given Company consent to use Customer’s CPNI to markets other than services of the same type that Customer already purchases from Company. Customer may change its election at any time by providing notice to Company at VoIPSupport@m2ngage2.com. Restricting Company’s use of Customer CPNI will not affect Company’s provision of any service, nor will it necessarily eliminate all types of Company marketing.
- REGULATORY FEES.
In addition to the payment terms contained in the Terms of Service, Company may charge Customer the following regulatory fees:
- Federal and State Universal Service Fee. Company is required to make contributions to the Federal and certain state Universal Service Funds (USF), which provide support to promote access to telecommunications services at reasonable rates for those living in rural and high-cost areas, income-eligible consumers, rural health care facilities, and schools and libraries. Company is permitted but not required to recover such costs from its customers. The Federal Communications Commission sets the Federal USF rates on a quarterly basis. USF rates are subject to change each quarter.
- b. 911 Fee. This fee is imposed by local governments to help pay primarily for the handling of calls for emergency services such as fire and rescue.
- 911 Service Fee. Company may charge a per-DID/ phone number fee to recover Company’s costs directly associated with providing 911 and E911 to its customers.
- Regulatory Recovery Fee. Company may charge a monthly regulatory recovery fee to offset costs it incurs in complying with obligations imposed by, and inquiries made by, federal, state, and municipal regulatory bodies/governments and related legal and billing expenses.

Company reserves the right to change, cancel, withdraw, or move such numbers at its sole discretion immediately upon notice. Customer will surrender all rights to the DID/ telephone numbers and fax numbers upon termination of Customer’s Voice Service if they have not been ported out in accordance with Section 5.2 below prior to such termination, and the numbers assigned to Customer may be reassigned upon termination of Customer’s Voice Service. Company will not be liable for any direct or indirect damages or incidental costs arising out of such reassignment.
- LOCAL NUMBER PORTABILITY
5.1 Porting In. Customer may elect to port an existing DID/ telephone number to Company (“Port-In”) for use with the Voice Service. In the event Customer elects to Port-In a number, Customer must first select a temporary number from the list of DID/ telephone numbers Company presents to Customer at the time Customer orders the Voice Service, which will be used until the Port-In is complete. Company will support all valid requests and will cooperate with Customer to perform any Port-In in accordance with Customer’s reasonable directions and Company’s operating procedures.

5.2 Porting Out. Customer or a third-party provider acting as agent on behalf of Customer (“Requesting Party”) may request that Company port a number assigned to Customer by Company to a third party provider (“Port-Out”). Company will support all such requests and will promptly cooperate with the Requesting Party to perform any Port-Out in accordance with the Requesting Party’s reasonable directions and Company’s standard operating procedures. In the event of any Port-Out, Customer agrees that until such time as the Port-Out is complete and Customer terminates the Voice Service for such DID/ telephone number, Customer shall remain bound by the terms of this Agreement related to that DID/ telephone number. Once the Port-Out is complete, Customer must terminate the Voice Services associated with such ported DID/ telephone number in order to stop incurring charges for such DID/ telephone number. Customer recognizes and agrees that in the event of a Port-Out Customer shall remain responsible for paying the required monthly service fees in accordance with the Terms of Service.
- 711 DIALING
The Voice Service allows dialing 711 to reach Telecommunications Relay Services (TRS). In the event the user’s registered location is not the same as the user’s geographic location, 711 calls may not be routed to the correct TRS center for the user’s location.
- Service Exclusions
