You may not use the InteliPhone Services in conjunction with sending unsolicited telephone, fax or text messages, including but not limited to 'robo-calling' and 'text-blasting'.

Unlimited Service Plans do not have a specified monthly maximum number of calls.

Emergence Fair Use Policy prohibits Unlimited Service Plan usage that exceeds 200% of the average all accounts with Unlimited Service Plans.
6. CUSTOMER RESPONSIBILITIES
You are fully responsible for the contents of your voice and data transmissions through the InteliPhone Services. Emergence simply acts as a passive conduit for you to send and/or receive information of your own choosing. However, Emergence reserves the right to take any action with respect to the InteliPhone Services that Emergence deems necessary or appropriate in its sole discretion if Emergence believes you or your information may create liability for Emergence, compromise or disrupt the InteliPhone Services for you or other Customers, or cause Emergence to lose (in whole or in part) the services of its suppliers.
You agree to provide true, current, accurate and complete customer information as prompted by the registration form, and you agree to notify Emergence promptly of any changes to this information as required to keep it current, complete and accurate.
All programs, services, processes, designs, software, technologies, trademarks, trade names, inventions and materials comprising the Emergence Service are wholly owned by Emergence and/or its licensors and service providers except where expressly stated otherwise.
Charges for InteliPhone Services may include an Activation Fee, Setup Fee, Service Fees, and Usage Fees. All charges will include sales tax at the rate in effect for Franklin County, Ohio. You agree to pay all charges for your use of Emergence InteliPhone Services at the prices in effect for the plan chosen.
9. USE OF CREDIT CARDS
If the payment method for your Emergence account is by credit card and payment is not received by Emergence from the card issuer or its agents, you agree to pay all amounts due upon demand by Emergence. Each time you use InteliPhone Services, or allow or cause InteliPhone Services to be used, you agree and reaffirm that Emergence is authorized to charge your designated card. Your card issuer's agreement governs your use of your designated card in connection with Emergence, and you must refer to such agreement (not this Agreement) with respect to your rights and liabilities as a cardholder. You agree that Emergence may (at its option) accumulate charges incurred during your monthly billing cycle and submit them as one or more aggregate charges during or at the end of each cycle, and that Emergence may delay obtaining authorization from your card issuer until submission of the accumulated charge(s). This means that accumulated charges may appear on the statement you receive from your card issuer.
You agree to indemnify and hold Emergence and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, partners, and employees, harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys' fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of use of our Service, violation of this agreement, or violation of any rights of another.
