FOR 143Call.COM PHONE SERVICE
This Customer Service Agreement (the "Agreement") sets forth all the terms and conditions that govern your use of the services offered by or through 143Call.com, whether you access them via a mobile application or through 143Call.com (the “Website”).
Your online acceptance of this Agreement will have the same legal effect as if you were providing a handwritten signature of acceptance.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Services Provided 143Call.com offers you, among other things, the ability to make local toll, domestic long distance, and international telephone calls by using either a telephone or a computer. In addition, it offers conference calling (Group Spoofing), call recording and Caller ID Spoofing capability on voice calls. 143Call.com also offers a voice callback service to a spoofed number that you select and an anonymous SMS service that allows you to send and receive text messages via a spoofed number. These services are provided on a pre-paid and subscription basis and do not require you to change your current telephone service provider(s) in order to use the services. A complete list of 143Call.com services can be found at www.143Call.com (the “Website”). 143Call.com is not responsible for reimbursement for calls made with another service while 143Call.com is temporarily unavailable.
Acceptable Conduct You agree to use the 143Call.com services only for purposes that are lawful in the jurisdictions where you are calling from and calling to. You shall not transmit any unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, sexually explicit, profane, hateful, racially, ethnically, or otherwise objectionable material of any kind, including but not limited to any material that encourages conduct that would constitute a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violate any applicable local, state, national, or international law. In particular, depending on the state or country in which you are located or the person you are calling is located, you may violate a country’s or a state’s law by listening in on or recording a telephone conversation without informing the other parties that you are doing so. You may not use the recording capability of 143Call.com unless you have determined that your use is legal. Before recording any call, you should check the laws of your state and the laws of any state in which a person you are calling is located in order to determine if you need the other party's permission to record a call. Even if your state only requires the permission of one party, you may make calls to or receive calls from people located in states that require the permission of both parties to record a call. If you record such a call without the knowledge and permission of the other person, you may be subject to criminal prosecution in the other state. In addition, it is a violation of U.S. law to, and you shall not, use the caller ID spoofing feature in connection with telemarketing or debt-collection calls. While sending an SMS with an anonymous number is not illegal in the U.S., sending an SMS with an anonymous number may violate the laws of other countries, and before using the service you should check the laws of the country in which you are located and in which the person you are sending an SMS to is located. If 143Call.com concludes that you are spoofing a number to affect the results of a survey or contest conducted by a third party, its network equipment may complete the call after changing the number you have chosen to spoof, and 143Call.com may provide the third party with notice that the call has been spoofed (but not, except pursuant to subpoena or other legal process, the actual calling number or any personal information about you). 143Call.com reserves the right to immediately, and without notice, terminate or discontinue your Account and PIN in the event it determines in its sole discretion that you have committed fraud or violated any applicable law or regulation or any term or condition of this Agreement. In order to combat harassing or illegal conduct, including fraud and unauthorized access to voicemail, 143Call.com may monitor or record customers' calls, review customers' recordings stored on its servers, and provide call detail records or recordings to law enforcement agencies. In addition, 143Call.com’s equipment routinely archives the text of any SMS sent via the anonymous SMS service, and such texts will be made available to law enforcement agencies consistent with applicable law.

Access Numbers To access 143Call.com's services in the United States, you must dial either a local access number or one of our toll free access numbers . If you dial the toll free number, you will be charged 1 extra credit per call (not per minute). If you have not set up PINless dialing, then after dialing an access number you must enter your PIN and then the destination telephone number. In other countries, there may be a charge to call the local access number. Before you use any local access number, check with your local telephone service provider to ensure that no toll charges are associated with calls to that local access number. 143Call.com will not reimburse you for any extra charges assessed by your local phone company as a result of dialing one of 143Call.com's access numbers.
Payment 143Call.COM'S SERVICES ARE PROVIDED ON A PREPAID OR SUBSCRIPTION BASIS. As you use 143Call.com's prepaid services, your Account will be debited accordingly. No prepaid services will be provided if your Account does not have a sufficient balance to cover the cost of the service. 143Call.com will automatically bill the credit card of customers who have selected a monthly membership plan on the day of the month on which they originally signed up. Customers whose credit cards are declined will have their services interrupted until payment can be collected. Customers may pay their past due balance via the website. 143Call.com does not issue refunds for billed services. 143Call.com is not responsible for overdrafts, over-limit, or any other situation relating to a customer's bank or credit card account balance.
Recharging Prepaid Account In the event you want to use services whose cost exceeds the remaining balance in your prepaid Account, you may access the Website and recharge (or supplement) your Account by purchasing additional service in non-refundable, preset dollar values. You also have the option at sign-up and in the control panel to set your Account to “auto-replenish.” If you select this feature, when your Account reaches a set balance, the system will automatically charge your credit card with the amount selected and replenish your 143Call Account.
PrePaid Rates 143Call.com's rates for prepaid services are listed on its Website and are incorporated by reference herein. You are responsible for checking all applicable rates/promotions before making or receiving any call or sending an SMS using 143Call.com's services. 143Call.com reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify its rates at any time and/or to offer special promotions. 143Call.com's prepaid rate structure is found in the ”Buy Credits” section of the Website.

Surcharges An additional 90-cent surcharge will be assessed on calls made from payphone. This surcharge covers charges imposed by the Federal Communications Commission to compensate owners for the use of their facilities to originate a phone call. Although a high percentage of callers do not complete their payphone calls (they hang up before entering a destination number), 143Call.com is still charged by the payphone operator for the toll free call. 143Call.com has included the average cost of these incomplete calls in this fee. If you do not use the 143Call service for 30 consecutive days, it will be considered inactive, and 143Call.com reserves the right to deduct up to 10 credits per month from inactive accounts in order to cover administrative costs.
