Toll Fraud is the theft of long distance service. It typically occurs when a party gains remote access to the Customer’s PBX, Soft Switch, or key system located at the Customer’s premise. Toll fraud may also occur through unauthorized use of the Customer’s calling cards.
Customers should immediately notify Summit Broadband of suspected Toll Fraud by calling the Summit Broadband Customer Care Center. Be prepared to identify the means by which the fraud occurred, if known, and any modifications made to Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) in an attempt to stop the Toll Fraud. Upon notice, Summit Broadband will investigate any suspected Toll Fraud, and may block, suspend, or otherwise limit the ability of the Service to prevent continued Toll Fraud. Customer agrees to cooperate with Summit Broad-band in the investigation, including the reporting of such incidents to the appropriate Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Customer agrees to provide Summit Broadband with such information and documentation as Summit Broadband may request, including any reports, testimony or affidavits submitted to law enforcement.
Summit Broadband is dedicated to leading the industry in providing quality, user-friendly network services and CPE. As part of that commitment, Summit Broadband respects the right of its customers to choose the Summit Broadband services and equipment that meet particular Customer needs, so long as the use is lawful and does not violate Summit Broadband’s policies and procedures. The freedom of the Customer to choose among Summit Broadband’s diverse service applications and the Customer’s exclusive control of CPE means that the Customer, and not Summit Broadband, is capable of addressing and preventing Toll Fraud. IT IS THE EXCLUSIVE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE CUSTOMER TO PREVENT THE OCCUR-RENCE OF FRAUD, and Customer is responsible for payment of any charges incurred due to fraud (including Toll Fraud), abuse, or misuse of the Services, whether known or unknown to Customer, and whether or not Summit Broadband takes any actions to stop or block Toll Fraud.
ABOUT THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, OUR SERVICES, AND YOUR RIGHTS
Summit Broadband Inc. (“Summit Broadband”,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) Service(s) will be provided to you (“you,” “your,” or “Customer”) on the terms and conditions set forth herein for residential Service(s) (the “Residential Terms and Conditions”) and applicable law by the operating company subsidiary of Summit Broadband that owns and/or operates the cable television, telephone, or Internet systems that delivers Service(s) to you. For purposes of these Residential Terms and Conditions, “affiliate” means any entity that controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with Summit Broadband. Service(s) may include, but are not limited to, cable television service (“Cable TV”), Internet service, (“Internet”) and telephone service (“Phone”) (each a “Service” and collectively the “Services”). The Service(s) do not include Summit Broadband owned or controlled websites such as www.summit-broadband.com. The Summit Broadband website has its own terms of service and policies that are accessible directly from the site.
We may change our prices, fees, the Service(s) and/or the terms and conditions of these Residential Terms and Conditions at any time, and further discussed herein. Unless these Residential Terms and Conditions or applicable law specifies otherwise, we will give you thirty (30) days’ prior notice of any significant change to these Residential Terms and Conditions. If you find the change unacceptable, you have the right to cancel your Service(s). However, if you continue to receive Service(s) after the end of the thirty (30) day notice period (the “Effective Date”) of the change, you will be considered to have accepted the changes.
You may not modify these Residential Terms and Conditions by making any typed, handwritten, or any other changes to it for any purpose.
Note: These Residential Terms and Conditions contain a binding arbitration provision in Section 13 that affects your rights under these Residential Terms and Conditions with respect to all Service(s). These terms and conditions are subject to applicable tariffs and service guides.
GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
1. ACCEPTANCE OF THIS AGREEMENT You will have accepted these Residential Terms and Conditions and will be bound thereby if you use the Service(s) or otherwise indicate your affirmative acceptance of such terms. You acknowledge that you are accepting this Agreement on behalf of all persons who use the Summit Broadband Equipment and/or Service(s) at the Premises and that you shall have sole responsibility for ensuring that all other users understand and comply with these Residential Terms and Conditions and any applicable Summit Broadband policies including, but not limited to, acceptable use and privacy policies.
2. CHARGES AND BILLINGS a. Charges, Fees, and Taxes You Must Pay. You agree to pay all charges associated with the Service(s), including, but not limited to, installation/service call charges, monthly service charges, Summit Broadband Equipment charges, measured and per call charges, applicable federal, state, and local taxes and fees (however designated), regulatory recovery fees for municipal, state, and federal government fees or assessments imposed on Summit Broadband, permitted fees and cost recovery charges, or any programs in which Summit Broadband participates, including, but not limited to, public, educational, and governmental access, universal service, telecom relay services for the visually/hearing impaired, rights-of-way access, and programs supporting the 911/E911 system and any fees or payment obligations imposed by governmental or quasi-governmental bodies for the sale, installation, use, or provision of the Service(s). YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYING ANY GOVERNMENT IMPOSED FEES AND TAXES THAT BECOME APPLICABLE RETROACTIVELY. We will provide you with notice and an effective date of any change in our prices or fees, unless the change in price is related to a change in governmental or quasi-governmental taxes, fees, or assessments, in which case we may elect not to provide notice except where required by applicable law. Not all fees apply to all Service(s).
For Internet Service Customers Internet service price information is available by calling customer support at 407-996-8900 (or an alternative site if we notify you).
b. How We Will Bill You. Service(s) are provided to you on a month-to-month basis. You will generally be billed monthly, in advance, for recurring service charges, equipment charges, and fees. Your first bill may include pro-rated charges from the date you first begin receiving Service(s), as well as monthly recurring charges for the next month and charges for non-recurring services you have received. You may be billed for some Service(s) individually after they have been provided to you; these include measured and per-call charges (as explained below) and charges for pay-per-view movies or events, interactive television, and e-commerce. If you receive Service(s) under a promotion, after the promotional period ends, regular charges for the Service(s) will apply. We do not waive our rights to collect the full balance owed to us by accepting partial payment. We will apply the partial payment to the outstanding charges in the amounts and proportions that we determine. We reserve the right to charge a monthly paper bill fee for any customers that have not agreed to, or have otherwise opted out of, receiving paperless or electronic billing statements. c. Third-Party Charges That Are Your Responsibility. You acknowledge that you may incur charges with third-party service providers such as accessing on-line services, calling parties who charge for their Phone-based services, purchasing or subscribing to other offerings via the Internet or interactive options on your Cable TV Service that are separate and apart from the amounts charged by us. You are solely responsible for all such charges payable to third parties, including all applicable taxes. In addition, you are solely responsible for protecting the security of credit card and other personal information provided to others in connection with such transactions. d. Payment by Credit Card, Debit Card, Electronic Check, or Check. If you use a credit card or debit card to pay for the Service(s), use of the card is governed by the card issuer agreement, and you must refer to that agreement for your rights and liabilities as a cardholder. If Summit Broadband does not receive payment from your credit or debit card issuer or its agents, you agree to pay all amounts due upon demand. If you make payment by check or electronic check, you authorize Summit Broadband to collect your check electronically. You agree that you may not amend or modify any payments with any restrictive endorsements (such as “paid in full”), or other statements or releases on or accompanying checks or other payments accepted by Summit Broadband and any such notations shall have no legal effect. e. Our Remedies if You Pay Late or Fail to Pay.
1. Late or Non-Payments:
You may be billed fees, charges, and assessments related to late or non-payments if for any reason (a) Summit Broadband does not receive payment for the Service(s) by the payment due date or (b) you pay less than the full amount due for the Service(s).
2. Fees Not Considered Interest or Penalties:
Summit Broadband does not anticipate that you will fail to pay for the Service(s) on a timely basis, and we do not extend credit to customers. Any fees, charges, and assessments due to late payment or non-payment are liquidated damages intended to be a reasonable advance estimate of our costs resulting from late payments and non-payments. These costs will be difficult to calculate or to predict when we set such fees, charges, and assessments, because we cannot know in advance: (a) whether you will pay for the Service(s) on a timely basis, if ever; (b) if you do pay late, when you will actually pay; and (c) what costs we will incur because of your late payment or non-payment.
3. Collection Costs:
If we use a collection agency or attorney to collect money owed by you, you agree to pay the reasonable costs of collection. These costs include, but are not limited to, any collection agency’s fees, reasonable attorneys’ fees, and arbitration or court costs.
If you fail to pay the full amount due for any or all of the Service(s) then Summit Broadband, at its sole discretion in accordance with and subject to applicable law, may suspend or disconnect any or all the Service(s) you receive. f. Reconnection Fees and Related Charges If you resume Service(s) after any suspension, we may require you to pay a reconnection fee. If you reinstate any or all Service(s) after disconnection, we may require you to pay an installation fee and/or service activation fee and a deposit. These fees are in addition to all past due charges and other fees. Reconnection of the Service(s) is subject to our credit policies, these Residential Terms and Conditions, and applicable law. g. Our Right to Make Credit Inquiries YOU AUTHORIZE SUMMIT BROADBAND TO MAKE INQUIRIES AND TO RECEIVE INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR CREDIT EXPERIENCE FROM OTHERS, TO ENTER THIS INFORMATION IN YOUR FILE, AND TO DISCLOSE THIS INFORMATION CONCERNING YOU TO APPROPRIATE THIRD PARTIES FOR REASONABLE BUSINESS PURPOSES. h. Your Responsibilities Concerning Billing Questions. Subject to applicable law, if you intend to dispute a charge or request a billing credit, you must contact Summit Broadband within sixty (60) days of the date on the bill. You waive any disputes or credits that you do not report within sixty (60) days. Summit Broadband may agree to provide billing services on behalf of third parties, as the agent of the third party. Any such third-party charges shall be payable pursuant to any contract or other arrangement between you and the third party. We will not be responsible for any dispute regarding these charges between you and any third party. You must address all such disputes directly with the third party.
3. DEPOSIT We reserve the right to require you to pay a deposit when you activate the Service(s), if you add Summit Broadband Equipment and/or Service(s), or if you fail to pay any amounts when they are due. If we disconnect your Service(s) or are otherwise required under applicable law to refund the deposit, and if you have provided accurate, current, and truthful information about yourself to set up a customer account with us (including, but not limited to, the representations and warranties in Section 15b), we shall within forty-five (45) days, or as otherwise specified by applicable law, return a sum equal to the deposit(s) you paid (without interest unless otherwise required by law) minus any amounts due on your account (including without limitation, any amounts owed for the Service(s) or for any Summit Broadband Equipment that is damaged, altered, or not returned).
4. CHANGES TO SERVICES AND EQUIPMENT Subject to applicable law, we have the right to change our Service(s) and Summit Broadband Equipment at any time with or without notice. We also may rearrange, delete, add to, or otherwise change programming or features or offerings contained in the Service(s), including, but not limited to, content, functionality, hours of availability, customer equipment requirements, speed, and upstream and downstream rate limitations. If we do give you notice it may be provided on your monthly bill, as a bill insert, email, in a newspaper or other communication permitted under applicable law.
5. ACCESS TO YOUR PREMISES AND CUSTOMER EQUIPMENT
a. Premises You agree to allow us and our agents the right to enter your property at which the Service(s) and/or Summit Broadband Equipment will be provided (the “Premises”) at reasonable times, for purposes of installing, configuring, maintaining, inspecting, upgrading, replacing and removing the Service(s) and/or Summit Broadband Equipment used to receive any of the Service(s).
b. Customer Equipment “Customer Equipment” means software, hardware, or services that you elect to use in connection with the Service(s) or Summit Broadband Equipment. You agree to allow us and our agents the rights to insert CableCARDs and other hardware in the Customer Equipment, send software and/or “downloads” to the Customer Equipment and install, configure, maintain, inspect, and upgrade the Customer Equipment and Summit Broadband Equipment.
c. Truck Rolls A “Truck Roll” is defined as the cost of having a technician attend the Premises to determine there has been no fault in the Service(s) provided by us to you at the Premises, but rather an issue not requiring the work
of a specialist or that could have been solved remotely without incurring travel costs. We have the right to charge you for a Truck Roll if your issue is not related to our network or to any other Summit Broadband issue. We will not impose a Truck Roll if you have enrolled in the Inside Wiring Maintenance plan, as discussed in Section 6c of these Residential Terms and Conditions. Customers must have active Inside Wiring Maintenance for a consecutive period of ninety (90) days from each last Truck Roll to be exempted from each future Truck Roll charge.
d. Ownership and Access You warrant you are either the owner of the Customer Equipment and/or the Premises or that you have the authority to give us access to the Customer Equipment and/or the Premises. If you are not the owner of the Customer Equipment and/or the Premises, you are responsible for obtaining any necessary approval from the owner to allow us and our agents access to the Customer Equipment and/or the Premises to perform the activities specified above. In addition, you agree to supply us or our agents, if we ask, the owner’s name, address and phone number and/or evidence that the owner has authorized you to grant access to us and our agents to the Customer Equipment and/or the Premises to perform the activities specified above.
6. MAINTENANCE AND OWNERSHIP OF EQUIPMENT AND SOFTWARE
a. Summit Broadband Equipment You agree that except for the wiring installed inside the Premises (“Inside Wiring”), or equipment purchased by you from Summit Broadband, all Summit Broadband Equipment belongs to us or other third parties and will not be deemed fixtures or in any way part of the Premises. “Summit Broadband Equipment” means all software or “downloads” to Customer Equipment or Summit Broadband Equipment and all new or reconditioned equipment installed, provided, or leased to you by us or our agents, including, but not limited to, cabling or wiring and related electronic devices, cable modems, Phone capable modems, wireless gateway/routers, CableCARDs, and any other hardware excluding equipment purchased by you from Summit Broadband.
We may remove or change the Summit Broadband Equipment at our discretion at any time the Service(s) are active or following the termination of your Service(s). You agree that our addition or removal of or change to the Summit Broadband Equipment may interrupt your Service(s). The Summit Broadband Equipment may only be used in the Premises and only for the Service(s) provided pursuant to these Residential Terms and Conditions, unless we have provided prior written authorization to you otherwise. At your request, we may relocate the Summit Broadband Equipment in the Premises for an additional charge, at a time agreeable to you and us. YOU UNDERSTAND AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT IF YOU ATTEMPT TO INSTALL OR USE THE SUMMIT BROADBAND EQUIPMENT OR SERVICE(S) AT A LOCATION OTHER THAN THE PREMISES, THE SERVICE(S) MAY FAIL TO FUNCTION OR MAY FUNCTION IMPROPERLY.
You agree that you will not allow anyone other than Summit Broadband or its agents to service the Summit Broadband Equipment. We suggest that the Summit Broadband Equipment in your possession be covered by your homeowners’, renters’, or other insurance.
In the event that you damage or lose (whether by misplacement or as a result of theft) the Summit Broadband Equipment, you shall be solely responsible for any costs or expenses associated with repair or replacement of such damaged, stolen, or otherwise misplaced equipment or components thereof. Upon the termination of your Services, you shall be responsible to return to Summit Broadband (or pay the replacement costs and expenses to Summit Broadband if the equipment or components shall have been lost or stolen) any and all Summit Broadband Equipment.
b. Customer Equipment 1. Responsibility:
You have sole responsibility for the operation or support, maintenance, or repairs of any Customer Equipment including, but not limited to, Customer Equipment to which Summit Broadband or a third party has sent software or “downloads.”
2. Non-Recommended Configurations:
Customer Equipment that does not meet Summit Broadband’s minimum technical or other specifications constitutes a “Non-Recommended Configuration.” NEITHER SUMMIT BROADBAND NOR ANY OF ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS, OR AGENTS WARRANTS THAT A NON-RECOMMENDED CONFIGURATION WILL ENABLE YOU TO SUCCESSFULLY INSTALL, ACCESS, OPERATE, OR USE THE SERVICE(S). YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT ANY SUCH INSTALLATION, ACCESS, OPERATION, OR USE COULD CAUSE CUSTOMER EQUIPMENT TO FAIL TO OPERATE OR CAUSE DAMAGE TO CUSTOMER EQUIPMENT, YOU, YOUR PREMISES, OR SUMMIT BROADBAND EQUIPMENT. NEITHER SUMMIT BROADBAND NOR ANY OF ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS, OR AGENTS SHALL HAVE ANY LIABILITY WHATSOEVER FOR ANY SUCH FAILURE OR DAMAGE. Summit Broadband reserves the right to deny you customer support for the Service(s) and/or terminate Service(s) if you use a Non-Recommended Configuration.
3. No Unauthorized Devices or Tampering:
You agree that we may terminate your Service (s) and recover such damages as may result from your actions if you: (i) attach or assist any person to attach, any unauthorized device to our cable network, Summit Broadband Equipment, or the Service(s); (ii) make or assist any person or entity to make any unauthorized connection or modification to Summit Broadband Equipment or the Service(s) or any other part of our cable network; (iii) attach anything to the Inside Wiring, Summit Broadband Equipment, or Customer Equipment, whether installed by you or us, which singly or together impairs the integrity of our cable network or degrades our cable network’s signal quality or strength or creates signal leakage; (iv) tamper with any Summit Broadband Equipment or any other part of our cable network; (v) receive unauthorized Service(s). You agree that it would be difficult, if not impossible, to calculate precisely the lost revenue resulting from your receipt of unauthorized Service(s) or the tampering with Summit Broadband Equipment or our cable network. You therefore agree to pay us as liquidated damages, the sum of Five Hundred Dollars ($500.00) per device or component used to receive the unauthorized Service(s) in addition to our cost to replace any altered, damaged, or unreturned Summit Broadband Equipment or other equipment owned by Summit Broadband, including any incidental costs. The unauthorized reception of the Service(s) may also result in criminal fines and/or imprisonment.
c. Inside Wiring Maintenance you may install Inside Wiring, such as additional cable wiring and outlets, provided it does not interfere with the normal operations of our cable network. Regardless of who installed it, we consider the Inside Wiring your property or the property of whomever owns the Premises. Accordingly, you are responsible for the repair and maintenance of the Inside Wiring, unless you and Summit Broadband have agreed otherwise in writing. (If you do not own the Premises, contact your landlord or building manager about the repair or maintenance of Inside Wiring.) You may elect to enroll in Summit Broadband’s Inside Wiring maintenance plan (“Inside Wiring Maintenance”). We will charge you a separate fee for Inside Wiring Maintenance. Summit Broadband will not install or pull new Inside Wiring in the Premises, nor will Summit Broadband provide support or maintenance for Inside Wiring not installed by us. Summit Broadband may provide additional outlets in the Premises at a separate cost from the Inside Wiring Maintenance and other support provisions herein.

1. You will immediately cease all use of the Service(s) and all Summit Broadband Equipment; and

LIMITATION OF SUMMIT BROADBAND’S LIABILITY.
a. Application. The limitations of liability set forth in this Section apply to any acts, omissions, and negligence of Summit Broadband and its underlying third-party service providers, agents, suppliers, distributors, licensors, and business partners (and their respective officers, employees, agents, contractors, or representatives) which, but for that provision, would give rise to a cause of action in contract, tort, or under any other legal doctrine. b. Customer Equipment. CUSTOMER EQUIPMENT MAY BE DAMAGED OR SUFFER SERVICE OUTAGES AS A RESULT OF THE INSTALLATION, SELF-INSTALLATION, USE, INSPECTION, MAINTENANCE, UPDATING, REPAIR, AND REMOVAL OF SUMMIT BROADBAND EQUIPMENT, CUSTOMER EQUIPMENT, AND/OR THE SERVICE(S).

THE OPENING, ACCESSING, OR USE OF YOUR COMPUTER OR OTHER DEVICES USED IN CONNECTION WITH INTERNET SERVICE OR CABLE TV SERVICE(S) MAY VOID WARRANTIES PROVIDED BY THE COMPUTER OR OTHER DEVICE MANUFACTURER OR OTHER PARTIES RELATING TO THE COMPUTER’S OR DEVICE’S HARDWARE OR SOFTWARE. NEITHER SUMMIT BROADBAND NOR ANY OF ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS, OR AGENTS, SHALL HAVE ANY LIABILITY WHATSOEVER AS THE RESULT OF THE VOIDING OF ANY SUCH WARRANTIES.
c. Other Services or Equipment. BY ACCEPTING THESE RESIDENTIAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS, YOU WAIVE ALL CLAIMS AGAINST SUMMIT BROADBAND FOR INTERFERENCE, DISRUPTION, OR INCOMPATIBILITY BETWEEN THE SUMMIT BROADBAND EQUIPMENT AND THE SERVICE(S) AND ANY OTHER SERVICE, SYSTEMS, OR EQUIPMENT. IN THE EVENT OF SUCH INTERFERENCE, DISRUPTION, OR INCOMPATIBILITY, YOUR SOLE REMEDY SHALL BE TO TERMINATE THE SERVICE(S) IN ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION 9. d. Software. When you use certain features of the Service(s), such as online features (where available), you may be required to use special software, applications, and/or access to the Internet. Summit Broadband makes no representation or warranty that any software or application installed on Customer Equipment, downloaded to Customer Equipment, or available through the Internet does not contain a virus or harmful feature. It is your sole responsibility to take appropriate precautions to protect any Customer Equipment from damage to its software, files, and data as a result of any such virus or other harmful feature. We may, but are not required to, terminate all or any portion of the installation or operation of the Service(s) if a virus or other harmful feature or software is detected or found to be present on your Customer Equipment. We are not required to provide you with any assistance in removal of viruses. If we decide, in our sole discretion, to install or run virus check software on your Customer Equipment, we make no representation or warranty that the virus check software will detect or correct any or all viruses. You acknowledge that you may incur additional charges for any service call made or required on account of any problem related to a virus or other harmful feature detected on your Customer Equipment. NEITHER SUMMIT BROADBAND NOR ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, CONTRACTORS, DISTRIBUTORS, LICENSORS, OR BUSINESS PARTNERS SHALL HAVE ANY LIABILITY WHATSOEVER FOR ANY DAMAGE TO OR LOSS OF ANY HARDWARE, SOFTWARE, FILES, OR DATA RESULTING FROM A VIRUS, ANY OTHER HARMFUL FEATURE, OR FROM ANY ATTEMPT TO REMOVE IT. In addition, as part of the installation process for the software and other components of the Service(s), system files on your Customer Equipment may be modified. Summit Broadband does not represent, warrant, or covenant that these modifications will not disrupt the normal operations of any Customer Equipment including without limitation your computer(s), or cause the loss of files. Summit Broadband does not represent, warrant, or covenant that the installation of the special software or applications or access to our web portal(s) will not cause the loss of files or disrupt the normal operations of any Customer Equipment, including, but not limited to, your computer(s). FOR THESE AND OTHER REASONS, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF BACKING UP ALL FILES TO ANOTHER STORAGE MECHANISM PRIOR TO SUCH ACTIVITIES. YOU UNDERSTAND AND ACCEPT THE RISKS IF YOU DECIDE NOT TO BACK UP FILES. NEITHER SUMMIT BROADBAND NOR ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, CONTRACTORS, DISTRIBUTORS, LICENSORS, OR BUSINESS PARTNERS SHALL HAVE ANY LIABILITY WHATSOEVER FOR ANY DAMAGE TO OR LOSS OF ANY SOFTWARE, FILES, OR DATA. e. Disruption of Service. The Service(s) are not fail-safe and are not designed or intended for use in situations requiring fail-safe performance or in which an error or interruption in the Service(s) could lead to severe injury to business, persons, property, or environment (“High Risk Activities”). These High Risk Activities may include, without limitation, vital business, or personal communications, or activities where absolutely accurate data or information is required. You expressly assume the risks of any damages resulting from High Risk Activities. We shall not be liable for any inconvenience, loss, liability, or damage resulting from any interruption of the Service(s), directly or indirectly caused by, or proximately resulting from, any circumstances beyond our control, including, but not limited to, causes attributable to you or your property; inability to obtain access to the Premises; failure of any signal at the transmitter; failure of a communications satellite; loss of use of poles, or other utility facilities; strike; labor dispute; riot or insurrection; war; explosion; malicious mischief; fire, flood, lightning, earthquake, wind, ice, extreme weather conditions, or other acts of God; failure or reduction of power; or any court order, law, act or order of government restricting or prohibiting the operation or delivery of the Service(s).

Unless specifically provided by law, such credit shall not exceed the fixed monthly charges for the month of such Service(s) interruption and excludes all non-recurring charges, one-time charges, per call or measured charges, regulatory fees and surcharges, taxes and other governmental and quasi-governmental fees. EXCEPT AND UNLESS SPECIFICALLY PROHIBITED BY LAW, SUCH CREDIT SHALL BE YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR AN INTERRUPTION OF SERVICE(S). Any credits provided by Summit Broadband are at our sole discretion and in no event shall constitute or be construed as a course of conduct by Summit Broadband. f. Directory Listings. IF WE MAKE AVAILABLE AN OPTION TO LIST YOUR NAME, ADDRESS, AND/OR TELEPHONE NUMBER IN A PUBLISHED DIRECTORY (WHETHER IN PRINT OR ONLINE) OR DIRECTORY ASSISTANCE DATABASE, AND ONE OR MORE OF THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS OCCURS: (1) YOU REQUEST THAT YOUR NAME, ADDRESS AND/OR PHONE NUMBER BE OMITTED FROM A DIRECTORY OR DIRECTORY ASSISTANCE DATABASE, BUT THAT INFORMATION IS INCLUDED IN EITHER OR BOTH; (2) YOU REQUEST THAT YOUR NAME, ADDRESS AND/OR PHONE NUMBER BE INCLUDED IN A DIRECTORY OR DIRECTORY ASSISTANCE DATABASE, BUT THAT INFORMATION IS OMITTED FROM EITHER OR BOTH; OR (3) THE PUBLISHED OR LISTED INFORMATION FOR YOUR ACCOUNT CONTAINS MATERIAL ERRORS OR OMISSIONS, THEN THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF SUMMIT BROADBAND AND ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS, OR AGENTS SHALL NOT EXCEED THE MONTHLY CHARGES, IF ANY, WHICH YOU HAVE ACTUALLY PAID TO SUMMIT BROADBAND TO LIST, PUBLISH, NOT LIST, OR NOT PUBLISH THE INFORMATION FOR THE AFFECTED PERIOD. YOU SHALL HOLD HARMLESS SUMMIT BROADBAND AND ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS, OR AGENTS AGAINST ANY AND ALL CLAIMS FOR DAMAGES CAUSED OR CLAIMED TO HAVE BEEN CAUSED, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, BY THE ERRORS AND OMISSIONS REFERENCED ABOVE. g. Third Parties. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, you acknowledge and understand that we may use third parties to provide components of the Service(s), including without limitation, their services, equipment, infrastructure, or content. Summit Broadband is not responsible for the performance (or non-performance) of third-party services, equipment, infrastructure, or content, whether or not they constitute components of the Service(s). Summit Broadband shall not be bound by any undertaking, representation, or warranty made by an agent, or employee of Summit Broadband or of our underlying third-party providers and suppliers in connection with the installation, maintenance, or provision of the Service(s), if that undertaking, representation, or warranty is inconsistent with these Residential Terms and Conditions. In addition, you understand that you will have access to the services and content of third parties through the Service(s), including, without limitation, that of content providers [whether or not accessible directly from the Service(s)]. Summit Broadband is not responsible for any services, equipment, infrastructure, and content that are not provided by us [even if they are components of the Service(s)], and we shall have no liability with respect to such services, equipment, infrastructure, and content. You should address questions or concerns relating to such services, equipment, infrastructure, and content to the providers of such services, equipment, infrastructure, and content. We do not endorse or warrant any third-party products, services, or content that are distributed or advertised over the Service(s). h. Damages. EXCEPT AS SPECIFICALLY PROVIDED IN THESE RESIDENTIAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS, NEITHER SUMMIT BROADBAND NOR ITS AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, CONTRACTORS, DISTRIBUTORS, LICENSORS, OR BUSINESS PARTNERS SHALL UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES OR UNDER ANY LEGAL THEORY
(INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, TORT OR CONTRACT) HAVE ANY LIABILITY TO THE CUSTOMER OR TO ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY FOR THE FOLLOWING LOSSES, DAMAGES, OR COSTS:
(1) any direct, indirect, incidental, special, treble, punitive, exemplary, or consequential losses or damages (including, but not limited to, loss of profits, loss of earnings, loss of business opportunities, personal injuries, or death) that result directly or indirectly from or in connection with: (a) your reliance on or use of the Summit Broadband Equipment or the Service(s); or (b) the installation , self-installation, maintenance, failure, or removal of the Service(s) (including, but not limited to, any mistakes, omissions, interruptions, computer or other hardware or software breach, failures or malfunctions, deletion or corruption of files, work stoppage, errors, defects, delays in operation, delays in transmission, or failure of performance of the Service(s), Summit Broadband Equipment, or the Customer Equipment, or any other mistakes, omissions, loss of call detail, email, voicemail, or other information or date); or (2) any losses, claims, damages, expenses, liabilities, legal fees, or other costs that result directly or indirectly from or in connection with any allegation, claim, suit, or other proceeding based upon a contention that the use of the Summit Broadband Equipment or the Service(s) by you or any other person or entity infringes upon the contractual rights, privacy, confidentiality, copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret, or other intellectual property rights of any third party.
i. Customer’s Sole Remedies. Your sole and exclusive remedies under these Residential Terms and Conditions are as expressly set forth herein. Certain of the above limitations may not apply if your state does not allow the exclusion or limitation of implied warranties or does not allow the limitation or exclusion of incidental or consequential damages. In those states, the liability of Summit Broadband and its employees, affiliates, suppliers, agents, contractors, distributors, licensors and business partners is limited to the maximum extent permitted by law. j. Survival of Limitations. All representations, warranties, indemnifications, and limitations of liability contained herein shall survive the termination of these Residential Terms and Conditions. Any other obligations of the parties hereunder shall also survive, if they relate to the period before termination or if, by their terms, they would be expected to survive such termination.
12. INDEMNIFICATION AND LIABILITY OF CUSTOMER. YOU AGREE THAT YOU SHALL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR AND SHALL DEFEND, INDEMNIFY, AND HOLD HARMLESS SUMMIT BROADBAND AND ITS EMPLOYEES, AFFILIATES, SUPPLIERS, AGENTS, CONTRACTORS, DISTRIBUTORS, LICENSORS, AND BUSINESS PARTNERS AND SHALL REIMBURSE US FOR ANY DAMAGES, LOSSES OR EXPENSES (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, REASONABLE ATTORNEYS’ FEES AND COSTS) INCURRED BY US IN CONNECTION WITH ANY CLAIMS, SUITS, JUDGMENTS, AND CAUSES OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF (a) YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE(S), SUMMIT BROADBAND EQUIPMENT, OR CUSTOMER EQUIPMENT; (b) VIOLATION OR INFRINGEMENT OF CONTRACTUAL RIGHTS, PRIVACY, CONFIDENTIALITY, COPYRIGHT, PATENT, TRADEMARK, TRADE SECRET, OR OTHER INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AND PROPRIETARY RIGHTS ARISING FROM YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE(S) OR ANY UNAUTHORIZED APPARATUS OR SYSTEM; (c) ANY CLAIMS OR DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE LACK OF 911/E911 OR DIALING ASSOCIATED WITH A HOME SECURITY, HOME DETENTION, OR MEDICAL MONITORING SYSTEM; AND (d) YOUR BREACH OF ANY PROVISION OF THIS AGREEMENT. 13. BINDING ARBITRATION.
a. Purpose. If you have a Dispute with Summit Broadband that cannot be resolved through an informal dispute resolution with Summit Broadband, you or Summit Broadband may elect to arbitrate that Dispute in accordance with the terms of this Arbitration Provision rather than litigate the Dispute in court. Proceeding in arbitration may result in limited discovery and may be subject to limited review by courts. b. Definitions. The term “Dispute” means any dispute, claim, or controversy between you and Summit Broadband regarding any aspect of your relationship with Summit Broadband, whether based in contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort (including, but not limited to, fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, negligence, or any other intentional tort), or any other legal or equitable theory, and includes the validity, enforceability or scope of this Arbitration Provision. Dispute is to be given the broadest possible meaning that will be enforced. As used in this Arbitration Provision, “Summit Broadband” means Summit Broadband and its parents, subsidiaries, and affiliated companies and each of their respective officers, directors, employees, and agents.
c. Right to Opt Out. IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO BE BOUND BY THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION, YOU MUST NOTIFY SUMMIT BROADBAND IN WRITING WITHIN THIRTY (30) DAYS OF THE DATE THAT YOU FIRST RECEIVE THESE RESIDENTIAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS BY MAIL TO SUMMIT BROADBAND AT 4558 35th STREET, ORLANDO, FLORIDA 32811, ATTENTION: LEGAL DEPARTMENT/ARBITRATION. YOUR WRITTEN NOTIFICATION TO SUMMIT BROADBAND MUST INCLUDE YOUR NAME, ADDRESS, AND SUMMIT BROADBAND ACCOUNT NUMBER AS WELL AS A CLEAR STATEMENT THAT YOU DO NOT WISH TO RESOLVE DISPUTES WITH SUMMIT BROADBAND THROUGH ARBITRATION. YOUR DECISION TO OPT OUT OF THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION WILL HAVE NO ADVERSE EFFECT ON YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH SUMMIT BROADBAND OR THE DELIVERY OF SERVICE(S) TO YOU BY SUMMIT BROADBAND. IF YOU HAVE PREVIOUSLY NOTIFIED SUMMIT BROADBAND OF YOUR DECISION TO OPT OUT OF ARBITRATION, YOU DO NOT NEED TO DO SO AGAIN. d. Initiation of Arbitration Proceeding. If you or Summit Broadband elect to resolve your Dispute through arbitration pursuant to this Arbitration Provision, the party initiating the arbitration proceeding may open a case with the American Arbitration Association – Case Filing Services, 1101 Laurel Oak Road, Suite 100, Voorhees, New Jersey 08043, 877-493-4185, www.adr.org under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association “AAA”. e. Arbitration Procedures. Because the Service(s) provided to you by Summit Broadband concerns interstate commerce, the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), not state arbitration law, shall govern the arbitrability of all Disputes. However, applicable federal law or the law of the state of Florida may apply to and govern the substance of any Disputes. No state statutes pertaining to arbitration shall be applicable under this Arbitration Provision.
If there is a conflict between this Arbitration Provision and the rules of the arbitration organization, this Arbitration Provision shall govern. If AAA will not enforce this Arbitration Provision as written, it cannot serve as the arbitration organization to resolve your dispute with Summit Broadband. If this situation arises, the parties shall agree on a substitute arbitration organization. If the parties are unable to agree, the parties shall mutually petition a court of appropriate jurisdiction to appoint an arbitration organization that will enforce this Arbitration Provision as written. If there is a conflict between this Arbitration Provision and the rest of these Residential Terms and Conditions, this Arbitration Provision shall govern.
A single arbitrator will resolve the Dispute. The arbitrator will honor claims of privilege recognized by law and will take reasonable steps to protect customer account information and other confidential or proprietary information.
The arbitrator will make any award in writing but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. An award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction over the parties for purposes of enforcement. If an award granted by the arbitrator exceeds seventy-five thousand dollars ($75,000), either party can appeal that award to a three-arbitrator panel administered by the same arbitration organization by a written notice of appeal filed within thirty (30) days from the date of entry of the written arbitration award. The members of the three-arbitrator panel will be selected according to the rules of the arbitration organization. The arbitration organization will then notify the other party that the award has been appealed. The three-arbitrator panel will issue its decision within one hundred and twenty (120) days of the date of the appealing party’s notice of appeal. The decision of the three-arbitrator panel shall be final and binding, except for any appellate right which exists under the FAA.
1. YOU MUST CONTACT US WITHIN SIXTY (60) DAYS OF THE OCCURRENCE OF THE EVENT OR FACTS GIVING RISE TO A DISPUTE (EXCEPT FOR BILLING DISPUTES GOVERNED BY SECTION 2 OF THESE RESIDENTIAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS), OR YOU WAIVE THE RIGHT TO PURSUE ANY CLAIM BASED UPON SUCH EVENT, FACTS, OR DISPUTE. 2. ALL PARTIES TO THE ARBITRATION MUST BE INDIVIDUALLY NAMED. THERE SHALL BE NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY CLAIMS TO BE ARBITRATED OR LITIGATED ON A CLASS ACTION OR CONSOLIDATED BASIS OR ON BASES INVOLVING CLAIMS BROUGHT IN A PURPORTED REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY ON BEHALF OF THE GENERAL PUBLIC (SUCH AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL), OTHER SUBSCRIBERS, OR OTHER PERSONS
g. Location of Arbitration. The arbitration will take place at a location convenient to you in the area where you receive the Service(s) from us. h. Payment of Arbitration Fees and Costs. SUMMIT BROADBAND WILL ADVANCE ALL ARBITRATION FILING FEES
AND ARBITRATOR’S COSTS AND EXPENSES UPON YOUR WRITTEN REQUEST GIVEN PRIOR TO THE COMMENCEMENT OF THE ARBITRATION. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL ADDITIONAL COSTS THAT YOU INCUR IN THE ARBITRATION, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, FEES FOR ATTORNEYS OR EXPERT WITNESSES. IF THE ARBITRATION PROCEEDING IS DECIDED IN SUMMIT BROADBAND’S FAVOR, YOU SHALL REIMBURSE SUMMIT BROADBAND FOR THE FEES AND COSTS ADVANCED TO YOU ONLY UP TO THE EXTENT AWARDABLE IN A JUDICIAL PROCEEDING. IF THE ARBITRATION PROCEEDING IS DETERMINED IN YOUR FAVOR, YOU WILL NOT BE REQUIRED TO REIMBURSE SUMMIT BROADBAND FOR ANY OF THE FEES AND COSTS ADVANCED BY SUMMIT BROADBAND. IF A PARTY ELECTS TO APPEAL AN AWARD TO A THREE-ARBITRATOR PANEL, THE PREVAILING PARTY IN THE APPEAL SHALL BE ENTITLED TO RECOVER ALL REASONABLE ATTORNEYS’ FEES AND COSTS INCURRED IN THAT APPEAL. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY IN THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION, SUMMIT BROADBAND WILL PAY ALL FEES AND COSTS THAT IT IS REQUIRED BY LAW TO PAY. i. Severability. If any clause within this Arbitration Provision is found to be illegal or unenforceable, that clause will be severed from this Arbitration Provision, and the remainder of this Arbitration Provision will be given full force and effect. If the class action waiver clause is found to be illegal or unenforceable, the entire Arbitration Provision will be unenforceable, and the dispute will be decided by a court. In the event this entire Arbitration Provision is determined to be illegal or unenforceable for any reason, or if a claim is brought in a Dispute that is found by a court to be excluded from the scope of this Arbitration Provision, you and Summit Broadband have each agreed to waive, to the fullest extent allowed by law, any trial by jury. j. Exclusions from Arbitration. YOU AND SUMMIT BROADBAND AGREE THAT THE FOLLOWING WILL NOT BE SUBJECT TO ARBITRATION: (1) ANY CLAIM FILED BY YOU OR BY SUMMIT BROADBAND THAT IS NOT AGGREGATED WITH THE CLAIM OF ANY OTHER SUBSCRIBER AND WHOSE AMOUNT IN CONTROVERSY IS PROPERLY WITHIN THE JURISDICTION OF A COURT THAT IS LIMITED TO ADJUDICATING SMALL CLAIMS; (2) ANY DISPUTE OVER THE VALIDITY OF ANY PARTY’S INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS; (3) ANY DISPUTE RELATED TO OR ARISING FROM ALLEGATIONS ASSOCIATED WITH UNAUTHORIZED USE OR RECEIPT OF SERVICE(S); (4) ANY DISPUTE THAT ARISES BETWEEN SUMMIT BROADBAND AND ANY STATE OR LOCAL REGULATORY AUTHORITY OR AGENCY THAT IS EMPOWERED BY FEDERAL, STATE, OR LOCAL LAW TO GRANT A FRANCHISE UNDER 47 U.S.C. § 522(9); AND (5) ANY DISPUTE THAT CAN ONLY BE BROUGHT BEFORE THE LOCAL FRANCHISE AUTHORITY UNDER THE TERMS OF THE FRANCHISE. k. Continuation. This Arbitration Provision shall survive the termination of your Service(s) with Summit Broadband.
14. CUSTOMER PRIVACY NOTICE AND SECURITY.
a. Summit Broadband will provide you with a copy of our customer privacy notice at the time we enter into an agreement to provide any Service(s) to you, and annually afterwards, or as otherwise permitted by law. b.

It is Summit Broadband’s information security policy to provide such notice to you in the manner set forth in Section 16.
a. Entire Agreement. These Residential Terms and Conditions and any other documents incorporated by reference constitute the entire agreement and understanding between you and Summit Broadband with respect to the subject matter herein, and replace any and all prior written or verbal agreements. If any portion of these Residential Terms and Conditions is held to be unenforceable, the unenforceable portion shall be construed in accordance with applicable law as nearly as possible to reflect the original intentions of the parties, and the remainder of the provisions shall remain in full force and effect. Summit Broadband does not waive any provision or right if it fails to insist upon or enforce strict performance of any provision of these Residential Terms and Conditions. Neither the course of conduct between you and Summit Broadband nor trade practice shall act to modify any provision of these Residential Terms and Conditions. b.

All Service(s) information, documents, and materials on our websites are protected by trademark, copyright, or other intellectual property laws, and international treaty provisions. All websites, corporate names, service marks, trademarks, trade names, logos, and domain names (collectively “marks”) of Summit Broadband and its affiliates are and shall remain the exclusive property of Summit Broadband.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS.
a. Ownership of Addresses. You acknowledge that use of Internet service does not give you any ownership or other rights in any Internet/on-line addresses provided to you, including, but not limited to, Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses, email addresses, and web addresses. We may modify or change these addresses at any time without notice and shall in no way be required to compensate you for these changes. Upon termination of an Internet service account, we reserve the right to permanently delete or remove any or all addresses associated with the account. b. Authorization.

All Summit Broadband High-Speed Internet customers and all others who use the Service (the “customer,” “user,” “you,” or “your”) must comply with this Policy. Your failure to comply with this Policy could result in the suspension or termination of your Service account. If you do not agree to comply with this Policy, you must immediately stop all use of the Service and notify Summit Broadband so that we can close your account.
How will I know when Summit Broadband changes this Policy, and how do I report violations of it?
Summit Broadband may revise this Policy from time to time by posting a new version on the Web site at http://www.Summit-Broadband.com or any successor URL(s) (the “Summit-Broadband.com Web site”).
Summit Broadband will use reasonable efforts to make customers aware of any changes to this Policy, which may include sending e-mail announcements or posting information on the Summit-Broadband.com website.

II. Customer Conduct and Features of the Service
What obligations do I have under this Policy?
In addition to being responsible for your own compliance with this Policy, you are also responsible for any use or misuse of the Service that violates this Policy, even if it was committed by a friend, family member, or guest with access to your Service account.
Therefore, you must take steps to ensure that others do not use your account to gain unauthorized access to the Service by, for example, strictly maintaining the confidentiality of your Service login and password. In all cases, you are solely responsible for the security of any device you choose to connect to the Service, including any data stored or shared on that device.
Summit Broadband recommends against enabling file or printer sharing unless you do so in strict compliance with all security recommendations and features provided by Summit Broadband and the manufacturer of the applicable file or printer sharing devices. Any files or devices you choose to make available for shared access on a home LAN, for example, should be protected with a strong password or as otherwise appropriate.
It is also your responsibility to secure the Customer Equipment and any other Premises equipment or programs not provided by Summit Broadband that connect to the Service from external threats such as viruses, spam, bot nets, and other methods of intrusion.
How does Summit Broadband address inappropriate content and transmissions?
Summit Broadband reserves the right to refuse to transmit or post, and to remove or block, any information or materials, in whole or in part, that it, in its sole discretion, deems to be in violation of Sections I or II of this Policy, or otherwise harmful to Summit Broadband’s network or customers using the Service, regardless of whether this material or its dissemination is unlawful so long as it violates this Policy.
Neither Summit Broadband nor any of its affiliates, suppliers, or agents have any obligation to monitor transmissions or postings (including, but not limited to, e-mail, file transfer, blog, newsgroup, and instant message transmissions as well as materials available on the Personal Web Pages and Online Storage features) made on the Service.
However, Summit Broadband and its affiliates, suppliers, and agents have the right to monitor these transmissions and postings from time to time for violations of this Policy and to disclose, block, or remove them in accordance with this Policy, the Subscriber Agreement and applicable law.
What requirements apply to electronic mail?
Summit Broadband is not responsible for deleting or forwarding any e-mail sent to the wrong e-mail address by you or by someone else trying to send e-mail to you. Summit Broadband is also not responsible for forwarding e-mail sent to any account that has been suspended or terminated. This e-mail will be returned to the sender, ignored, deleted, or stored temporarily at Summit Broadband’s sole discretion.
In the event that Summit Broadband believes in its sole discretion that any subscriber name, account name, or e-mail address (collectively, an “identifier”) on the Service may be used for, or is being used for, any misleading, fraudulent, or other improper or illegal purpose, Summit Broadband (i) reserves the right to block access to and prevent the use of any of these identifiers and (ii) may at any time require any customer to change his or her identifier.
In addition, Summit Broadband may at any time reserve any identifiers on the Service for Summit Broadband’s own purposes. In the event that a Service account is terminated for any reason, all e-mail associated with that account (and any secondary accounts) will be permanently deleted as well.
What requirements apply to instant, video, and audio messages?
Each user is responsible for the contents of his or her instant, video, and audio messages and the consequences of any of these messages. Summit Broadband assumes no responsibility for the timeliness, mis-delivery, deletion, or failure to store these messages.
In the event that a Service account is terminated for any reason, all instant, video, and audio messages associated with that account (and any secondary accounts) will be permanently deleted as well.
III. Violation of this Acceptable Use Policy
What happens if you violate this Policy?
Summit Broadband reserves the right immediately to suspend or terminate your Service account and terminate the Subscriber Agreement if you violate the terms of this Policy or the Subscriber Agreement.
How does Summit Broadband enforce this Policy?
Summit Broadband does not routinely monitor the activity of individual Service accounts for violations of this Policy. However, in the company’s efforts to promote good citizenship within the Internet community, it will respond appropriately if it becomes aware of inappropriate use of the Service.
Summit Broadband has no obligation to monitor the Service and/or the network. However, Summit Broadband and its suppliers reserve the right at any time to monitor bandwidth, usage, transmissions, and content in order to, among other things, operate the Service; identify violations of this Policy; and/or protect the network, the Service and Summit Broadband users.
Summit Broadband prefers to inform customers of inappropriate activities and give them a reasonable period of time in which to take corrective action. Summit Broadband also prefers to have customers directly resolve any disputes or disagreements they may have with others, whether customers or not, without Summit Broadband’s intervention.
However, if the Service is used in a way that Summit Broadband or its suppliers, in their sole discretion, believe violates this Policy, Summit Broadband or its suppliers may take any responsive actions they deem appropriate under the circumstances with or without notice.
These actions include, but are not limited to, temporary or permanent removal of content, cancellation of newsgroup posts, filtering of Internet transmissions, and the immediate suspension or termination of all or any portion of the Service (including but not limited to newsgroups).
Neither Summit Broadband nor its affiliates, suppliers, or agents will have any liability for any of these responsive actions. These actions are not Summit Broadband’s exclusive remedies and Summit Broadband may take any other legal or technical actions it deems appropriate with or without notice.
Summit Broadband reserves the right to investigate suspected violations of this Policy, including the gathering of information from the user or users involved and the complaining party, if any, and examination of material on Summit Broadband’s servers and network.
During an investigation, Summit Broadband may suspend the account or accounts involved and/or remove or block material that potentially violates this Policy. You expressly authorize and consent to Summit Broadband and its suppliers cooperating with (i) law enforcement authorities in the investigation of suspected legal violations, and (ii) and system administrators at other Internet service providers or other network or computing facilities in order to enforce this Policy. Upon termination of your Service account, Summit Broadband is authorized to delete any files, programs, data, e-mail and other messages associated with your account (and any secondary accounts).
The failure of Summit Broadband or its suppliers to enforce this Policy, for whatever reason, shall not be construed as a waiver of any right to do so at any time. You agree that if any portion of this Policy is held invalid or unenforceable, that portion will be construed consistent with applicable law as nearly as possible, and the remaining portions will remain in full force and effect.
You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Summit Broadband and its affiliates, suppliers, and agents against all claims and expenses (including reasonable attorney fees) resulting from any violation of this Policy. Your indemnification will survive any termination of the Subscriber Agreement.

Summit Broadband is committed to complying with U.S. copyright and related laws, and requires all customers and users of the Service to comply with these laws. Accordingly, you may not store any material or content on, or disseminate any material or content over, the Service (or any part of the Service) in any manner that constitutes an infringement of third party intellectual property rights, including rights granted by U.S. copyright law.
Owners of copyrighted works who believe that their rights under U.S. copyright law have been infringed may take advantage of certain provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) to report alleged infringements.
It is Summit Broadband’s policy in accordance with the DMCA and other applicable laws to reserve the right to terminate the Service provided to any customer or user who is either found to infringe third party copyright or other intellectual property rights, including repeat infringers, or who Summit Broadband, in its sole discretion, believes is infringing these rights. Summit Broadband may terminate the Service at any time with or without notice for any affected customer or user.
How do copyright owners report alleged infringements to Summit Broadband?
Copyright owners may report alleged infringements of their works that are stored on the Service or the Personal Web Features by sending Summit Broadband’s authorized agent a notification of claimed infringement that satisfies the requirements of the DMCA.

Under the DMCA, anyone who knowingly makes misrepresentations regarding alleged copyright infringement may be liable to Summit Broadband, the alleged infringer, and the affected copyright owner for any damages incurred in connection with the removal, blocking, or replacement of allegedly infringing material.
What can customers do if they receive a notification of alleged infringement?
If you receive a notification of alleged infringement as described above, and you believe in good faith that the allegedly infringing works have been removed or blocked by mistake or misidentification, then you may send a counter notification to Summit Broadband.
Upon Summit Broadband’s receipt of a counter notification that satisfies the requirements of DMCA, Summit Broadband will provide a copy of the counter notification to the person who sent the original notification of claimed infringement and will follow the DMCA’s procedures with respect to a received counter notification.
