Terms and Conditions

Terms

By receiving any Vertical IT Solutions (VITS) service, you are agreeing to the terms and conditions provided within this document. VITS services include but are not limited to: Cloud Services (hosting, colocation, etc.), Voice over IP Business Telephone Services (VoIP), Managed IT and Security Services (MSSP), Software Development Services, Backup and Disaster Recovery Services, and Email Services. The term of this agreement begins on the date your service begins with VITS.

Quality of Service

Voice over internet protocol (VoIP) is the transmission of voice telecommunications via the internet. Therefore, the quality of VoIP service and availability is dependent on your internet service provider (ISP), the customers network and firewall. Because of this VITS will need remote access to your firewall and network to ensure the customer is receiving the highest quality of service possible. Not all firewalls and/or routers offer the ability to give priority to VoIP traffic, in which case the customer is responsible for obtaining a firewall with Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities. VITS can give recommendations, but is not responsible for providing additional equipment that is not stated in the original agreement.

E911

Enhanced 911 (E911) is not a traditional 911 service, because of this an accurate address of the customers’ location must be inputted into the VITS system. The customer is responsible for providing accurate E911 location information to VITS. Any changes to the customers’ location, whether permanent or temporary must be made known to VITS by the customer. Outages of service including suspension, network, internet, and power failure, and cancellation will also cancel E911 service.

Retention of: Call Detail Records, Recordings, Voicemails, and Fax Files

VITS retains Call Detail Records (CDRs) for 24 months. Call recordings, voicemails, and fax files are retained for 12 months. Note that if a user has requested to be emailed voicemails only (not saved to their phone), then those voicemails are not retained by VITS at all.

Cancellation of Service

You may cancel your service with Vertical IT Solutions at any time unless otherwise stated in a contract, statement of service, or statement of work. By cancelling service with Vertical IT Solutions, the customer is subject to a cancellation fee dependent on original contract, agreement, statement of service, and/or quote. The customer is responsible to pay the remaining contractual balance on the agreed upon contract or statement of work. To cancel service, a “cancellation request” email must be submitted to cancel@verticalits.com. VITS holds the right to cancel the service of any customer based upon illegal use of VITS’s systems or services.

VoIP Sales Tax and Fees

VoIP services are subject to taxes and fees imposed by the governing authorities, including but not limited to the FCC, state agencies, federal agencies, local agencies, municipal, Universal Service Fee, E911 etc. These taxes and fees are in a constant state of change and therefore cannot be determined beforehand in this agreement. The customer will be responsible to pay the taxes and fees stated in the customer’s monthly invoice provided by VITS.

Payments and Late Charges

Payment for services is due within (7) days upon receival of invoice. VITS will provide the customer an invoice upon activation of services via one of the following: mail, email, or web portal. Customers who fail to provide payment within this stated agreement will be subject to limited, suspended, or cancellation of services, and late fees.

Transfer of Service, Number Porting and Cancelling of Existing Service

During the transfer of service, number porting, call forwarding or cancellation of service from the customers’ existing phone service provider may experience but not limited to loss of service, degradation of quality, number loss, negligent internet disconnects, loss of caller ID (CID), longer ring time, dropped calls, dropped inbound and outbound faxes, etc. VITS will not be held responsible for such loss of services during the transition between VC and the customers’ existing service provider. Any phone numbers that need to be ported over must be documented in the porting agreement by the customer and given to VC. VC will only be responsible for porting over the numbers that the customer has stated and documented to VITS to be ported over in the quote, proposal, statement of service. For unforeseen reasons, certain phone numbers cannot be ported over to VITS, in which case VITS cannot be held responsible for loss of phone numbers. During the porting process, there can be an overlap in service between VITS and your current phone service provider. This overlap in service may result in you receiving a bill from both VITS and your current phone service provider. VITS cannot be held responsible for any costs incurred from your service provider during this time.

Domestic, Long Distance, and International Rates

VITS provides unlimited calling with the US and Canada. International calling will be subject extra charges based upon minutes used by the customer and destination of call. International rates subject to change and can be requested by the customer by emailing support@verticalits.com. VITS may monitor the use of our systems and services to bill the customer appropriately.

VITS will not be responsible for the support of network hardware, phones, firewalls, routers, or any other equipment that is not provided by VITS, unless otherwise stated in the customers agreed upon agreement, contract, and/or statement of service.
