Service Description. These Terms and Conditions govern the use of
Precision Videoconferencing Solutions’ audio, video and web-based conferencing
services and related standard and enhanced conferencing features
(“Services”). By ordering or using the Services Customer agrees to be bound
by these Terms and Conditions. Precision Videoconferencing Solutions may enhance
and/or expand the features of the Services from time to time. Customer shall
provide all user information necessary to enable Precision Videoconferencing
Solutions to create user profiles for each user Customer wishes to provide
access to the Services. Services are charged by multiplying the number of
minutes used in a conference by Customer’s per minute rate. Precision
Videoconferencing Solutions reserves the right to reclaim any dial-in numbers
provided Customer for Services (“Dial-In Numbers”) if such Dial-In Numbers
are “inactive” for 120 days. The term “inactive” is defined as no usage
on a specific number/service and no upcoming reservations scheduled for such
number/service. The Dial-In Numbers will be reassigned to the Customer, upon
request, in Precision Videoconferencing Solutions’ sole discretion only if
such Dial-In Numbers continue to be available, otherwise Customer will be
provided new Dial-In Numbers.
It is our standard procedure to ONLY certify new sites. Once a site has been tested, it is considered certified and will not be re-tested before each new scheduled videoconference unless Precision Videoconferencing Solutions is notified in writing of a problem with the circuit or change in ISDN numbers or IP addresses. Upon notification, Precision Videoconferencing Solutions will re-certify the site. Re-tests are invoiced at standard connection and port rates. Site certifications are scheduled and performed within 5 working days of your scheduled videoconference. For international site certifications and testing, Precision Videoconferencing Solutions must be contacted BY the international site for testing at least 3 working days in advance of a scheduled call. Because of the time zone differences, it is often difficult to schedule testing. Precision does NOT guarantee ANY connection or quality of connection. We are at the mercy of the network providers. Certification testing is done on an individual site basis. If customer requires a full end to end test with all locations simultaneously, full conferencing charges apply at standard rates.
In the event testing has occurred, and a conference either cancels or is postponed, Precision Videoconferencing Solutions reserves the right to charge a minimal testing fee of $50 or the cost of the time connected (whichever is more). If the conference is later re-scheduled, the testing fee will be applied to the actual conference invoice. If a customer wishes to conduct a test prior to reserving his/her videoconference, a $50 fee will be charged plus connection time. The fee will be applied towards the actual videoconference.
Practice/ Standard Operating Procedures.
Multipoint videoconferences and gateways are billed in "per minute" increments for the actual connection times. It is our standard procedure to connect the sites a minimum of 15 minutes prior to your scheduled start time. This pre-connect time IS billable. You may decline to have us connect your sites early, however, your videoconference's start time may be delayed. If you require a longer setup time, please notify your Precision Videoconferencing Solutions representative.
We make every best effort to connect your sites for an on-time start, but cannot guarantee connections due to customer equipment problems and public Telco network issues that are beyond our control. If we run into technical difficulties in connecting a site, your scheduled start time may be delayed. Charges are incurred for sites that are connected and waiting during the troubleshooting of another site. If a conference cancels or is unable to continue due to technical difficulties, CUSTOMER IS LIABLE FOR CHARGES INCURRED FOR THE LENGTH OF CONNECTION BY ANY/ALL SITE(S) THAT WERE CONNECTED DURING THE TROUBLESHOOTING PERIOD. Sites are left connected at technician's discretion unless specifically asked to disconnect by customer.
Precision Videoconferencing Solutions is not responsible for charges accumulated due to equipment being left connected to the bridge at the conclusion of the videoconference. It is the customer's responsibility to instruct the room administrator or attendee to disconnect his/her videoconferencing equipment at the conclusion of the call.
