3.2. 9-1-1 Service.

PLEASE READ THE INFORMATION BELOW ABOUT 9-1-1 EMERGENCY SERVICE CAREFULLY! By using or paying for the Home Phone Services, the Customer acknowledges and agrees to all of the information below regarding the limitations of using the Home Phone Services for dialing 9-1-1. The Customer acknowledges and understands that the Home Phone Service offers a limited 9-1-1 type service and that such 9-1-1 type dialing differs in important respects from traditional 9-1-1 service, as described below. The Customer agrees to advise all users who may place calls over the Home Phone Service from the Customer's location of these limitations.

a) Fibernetics 9-1-1 emergency dialing is only supported in software and on Analogue Terminal Adapters (ATAs) or modems provided by Fibernetics for use with the Home Phone Services.

b) The 9-1-1 call may be routed to a different dispatcher than that used for traditional 9-1-1 dialing. The dispatcher will be located at either the Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) or with a local emergency service relay provider designated for the address specified by the Customer at the time of subscription or as properly updated by the Customer from time to time.

c) Fibernetics 9-1-1 emergency dialing has certain limitations relative to Enhanced 9-1-1 service. Enhanced 9-1-1 service is the type of 9-1-1 service that is generally available on most traditional primary exchange telephone services. With Enhanced 9-1-1 service, the Customer’s address information associated with the Customer’s telephone number is usually available to the PSAP at the time of the Customer’s 9-1-1 call. With the Home Phone Services 9-1-1 emergency dialing, the Customer’s call is being sent via the Internet rather than a traditional phone line, and as the most up to date Customer address information may not arrive with this call, a different method is required to send this Customer address information accurately. This method may involve the use of an intermediary emergency service operator to help ascertain the Customer’s current location information.

d) 9-1-1 dialing will not function correctly if the Customer moves or changes locations without updating the location information with Fibernetics. An emergency service operator will assume the Customer is at the last registered address if the caller is not able to speak during the 9-1-1 call. The Customer’s registered location information is used to accurately connect to the appropriate emergency response center so that the emergency response center may trigger the appropriate emergency response. In order to have 9-1-1 calls routed correctly, upon subscription to Worldline Home Phone Services the Customer must provide detailed and accurate location information, including in-building identification information (such as a Suite #) to accurately reflect the exact location of the Customer in the case of emergency. The Customer is also responsible for notifying Fibernetics of any change in address at least three (3) days prior to moving in order to keep the registered location information current. The Customer must notify Fibernetics Customer service by phone or at www.worldline.ca. Please note that it may take up to three (3) days upon initial activation of service for the Customer’s address information to fully propagate throughout the 9-1-1 systems.

e) The Customer must be prepared to confirm the Customer’s location and telephone number with the operator who answers the 9-1-1 call since the operator may not have this information. It is also recommended for the Customer to keep in mind that Fibernetics is the Customer’s telephone service provider because if necessary, the Fibernetics central call centers can contact emergency services in severe emergency situations to provide assistance. The Customer is also encouraged not to hang up until told to do so, and to immediately call back if disconnected.

f) Home Phone Services 9-1-1 emergency dialing may not be available: during a power outage, network failure, if the Customer's computer, system, equipment or wiring is malfunctioning, in the event of suspension or disconnection of the Home Phone Service because of billing issues or breach of terms of service, due to any disconnection or suspension of underlying broadband access service or due to a Force Majeure event (as defined in this Agreement). Home Phone Services 9-1-1 emergency dialing will also be unavailable during a broadband internet outage. If there is a power outage, the Customer may be required to reset or reconfigure the ATA or modem (as the case may be), prior to being able to use the Home Phone Service, including for 9-1-1 dialing purposes.

g) For technical reasons associated with the possibility of network congestion, there is a possibility that the 9-1-1 call will produce a busy signal or will take longer to answer as compared to traditional 9-1-1 calls placed from a fixed location known to the emergency service provider.

h) The Customer should inform any household residents, guests and other persons who may be present at the physical location where the Home Phone Service is utilized of the important differences in and limitations of the 9-1-1 dialing as compared with traditional Enhanced 9-1-1 service, as set out above.

i) Customers travelling outside of Canada will not have 9-1-1 dialing services.

j) If the Customer is not comfortable with the limitations of the Home Phone Services 9-1-1 emergency dialing, the Customer should consider having an alternate means of accessing traditional 9-1-1 or Enhanced 9-1-1 services or disconnecting the Home Phone Service.

k) The Customer acknowledges and understands that Fibernetics will not be liable for any service outage and/or inability to dial 9-1-1 using the Home Phone Services or to access emergency service personnel due to the 9-1-1 dialing characteristics and limitations listed herein. THE CUSTOMER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY HEREIN, FIBERNETICS, ITS AFFILIATES, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS AND UNDERLYING CARRIERS WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INJURY, DEATH OR DAMAGE TO PERSONS OR PROPERTY, ARISING DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY OUT OF, OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THE PROVISION OR NON-PROVISION OF 9-1-1 AND/OR EMERGENCY 9-1-1 SERVICE, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY INABILITY ON THE PART OF CUSTOMER OR ITS END USERS TO ACCESS 9-1-1 AND/OR EMERGENCY 9-1-1 SERVICE, AND THE CUSTOMER AGREES TO INDEMNIFY AND HOLD HARMLESS FIBERNETICS, ITS AFFILIATES AND THEIR RESPECTIVE DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS AND UNDERLYING CARRIERS FROM ANY LIABILITIES, CLAIMS, DAMAGES, LOSSES ARISING DIRECTLY FROM THE PROVISION OR NON-PROVISION OF 9-1-1 AND/OR EMERGENCY 9-1-1 SERVICE.

3.4. Porting.

a) Number Transfer ("Porting to Fibernetics").

The LOA will permit Fibernetics to contact the Customer’s current carrier and request the port of the number to the Fibernetics network. The Customer is responsible to cancel the service agreement with the current carrier, once informed by Fibernetics that the port is complete. Fibernetics will not be responsible for numbers that are lost, charges incurred to reclaim the telephone number, or any other porting fees, should the Customer cancel his/her service before the port is complete.

b) Number Transfer Away From Fibernetics ("Porting Out"). If the Customer intends to change to another service provider, the Customer may request to take or "port out" the telephone number supplied by Fibernetics to such other service provider. If the Customer asks a new service provider to port a number from Fibernetics, the Customer must provide verbal notice of the requested port and Fibernetics shall terminate the Service with respect to such number after the successful completion of the port. The Customer shall remain responsible for any charges and fees associated with that number until the Service is terminated. If the Customer's Service has been suspended due to non-payment, Fibernetics reserves the right to deny the port-out request. If a port is unsuccessful for any reason, the Service and this Agreement will not terminate and the Customer will continue to be responsible for any charges and fees associated with the Service and the Customer's account.

8. Worldline Mobile App

8.19-1-1 Support.

PLEASE READ THE INFORMATION BELOW ABOUT 911 EMERGENCY SERVICE CAREFULLY.

a) By using the Worldline Mobile application, the Customer acknowledges and agrees to all the information below regarding the limitations of using the Software for dialing 9-1-1.

b) The Customer acknowledges and understands that the Software offers a Basic 9-1-1 type service. With the Basic 9-1-1 service, anyone placing a 9-1-1 call from the Software will be routed to an emergency operator (an "Operator") and will have to provide their specific address/location. Once this information has been successfully provided to the Operator, the Operator will route the call to the appropriate Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) corresponding to the provided address/location. Further, for Basic 9-1-1 service, the phone number and address designated by the Customer in the Worldline records will be the location information passed on the local PSAP or local emergency dispatcher. Therefore, it is critical that Customer, at time of activation and following any moves or location changes, provide correct and up to date address and contact information to Worldline. 9-1-1 calls originating from an address or location outside of Canada cannot be routed to any PSAP or emergency service by the Operator.

c) Worldline can only support Software provided by Worldline for purposes of 9-1-1 emergency dialing. If a Worldline Mobile user calls 9-1-1, he/she must be prepared to immediately inform the emergency services dispatcher of his/her location or the location of the emergency, if different. Should there be a service outage at the location where the Software is being used, including (but not limited to) power outage, network service outage, or suspension or disconnection of the Software, it may prevent 9-1-1 dialing from working.

d) For technical reasons associated with the possibility of network congestion with the Software there is a possibility that a 9-1-1 call will produce a busy signal or will take longer to answer, as compared to traditional 9-1-1 calls. For further clarification, when using the Software, the PSAP or local emergency service dispatcher receiving the Customer’s 9-1-1 call may not be able to capture and/or retain automatic number or location information. This means that the dispatcher may not know the phone number or physical location of the person who is making the 9-1-1 call. Therefore, users of the Software dialing 9-1-1 must immediately inform the dispatcher of their location (or the location of the emergency, if different). The user must ensure not to disconnect the line, as the dispatcher may not have a phone number to use for call back. If the user is unable to speak and describe the location, the emergency dispatcher may not be able to obtain the location information. If 9-1-1 is dialed and the receiver is then hung up, the call will be disconnected.

e) THE CUSTOMER ACKNOWLEDGES AND UNDERSTANDS THAT WORLDLINE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY SERVICE OUTAGE AND/OR INABILITY TO DIAL 9-1-1 USING THE SOFTWARE OR FOR ANY INABILITY TO ACCESS EMERGENCY SERVICE PERSONNEL DUE TO THE 9-1-1 DIALING CHARACTERISTICS AND LIMITATIONS LISTED HEREIN. THE CUSTOMER AGREES TO DEFEND, INDEMNIFY AND HOLD HARMLESS WORLDLINE, ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, PARENTS, SUCCESSORS, AFFILIATES, AGENTS AND ANY OTHER SERVICE PROVIDER WHO FURNISHES SERVICES TO THE CUSTOMER IN CONNECTION WITH MOBILE SERVICES, FROM ANY AND ALL INJURY, DEATH OR DAMAGE TO PERSONS OR PROPERTY, CLAIMS, LOSSES, FINES, PENALTY AND COSTS (INCLUDING SOLICITOR’S FEES) BY, OR ON BEHALF OF, THE CUSTOMER OR ANY THIRD PARTY OR USER OF THE SOFTWARE RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THE FAILURE OR OUTAGE OF THE SOFTWARE RELATED TO 9-1-1 DIALING. CUSTOMER IS ADVISED TO KEEP AN ANALOG LINE FOR SECURITY AND/OR FAX SERVICES. THIS ANALOG LINE SHOULD BE USED AS A BACKUP FOR 9-1-1 IN THE EVENT OF A SERVICE OUTAGE ON THE SOFTWARE. ALL USERS SHOULD BE MADE AWARE OF THE LOCATION OF THE ANALOG PHONE.
