Terms of Service
IMPORTANT NOTICE: By accepting these Terms of Service and using the products and services provided to you, you are bound by the terms and conditions listed hereafter and any wireless carrier “Service Agreement”, “Acceptable Use Policy”, or related document which governs a user’s responsible use of network resources and services as referenced by the wireless carrier on their website. Additional terms and conditions may also apply. A minimum summary is referenced below for your benefit.
1. You (“you” or “Member”) are being provided an Internet access service (“Service”). You are not being provided with any applications (such as Internet telephone or cable TV) that might be provided with INTERNET service by other vendors. We are not involved in the creation or the provisioning of the Service. The Provider provides the Service over its wireless network, using cell sites and frequencies licensed by the FCC. The Service is not available in all locations. You will only be able to access the Service when within the Provider’s network's operating range, which may change from time to time and is at the Provider's sole discretion. The Service may be disrupted or unavailable from time to time due to maintenance, emergencies, inclement weather, or other factors outside of our control or any of our partner’s control. The Service and the related equipment needed to use the Service (“Equipment”) may not function in the event of a power failure or disruption, and you may be required to reset or reconfigure your modem or other hardware in order to use the Service thereafter. We and our partner’s assume no liability with regard to any failure or lack of performance of the Service.
2. Use of the Service is subject to the Provider’s then-current (i) acceptable use policy (the “Provider AUP”) and incorporated herein by reference, and (ii) end-user terms and conditions (the “Provider T&C”). The Provider reserves the right to change its AUP or T&C at any time.
ONE-TIME SETUP FEE
Upon becoming a member, you are responsible for paying a One-Time SETUP Fee for each subscription. This covers the setup, administration, and support of each subscription. This fee is charged once. Setup Fee does not constitute ownership of any provided equipment.
MONTHLY SERVICE DUES
Upon becoming a user, you are responsible for paying the first month of Service upon purchase of the one-time setup fee. The service subscription will renew 1 month after the one-time setup fee start-date. Monthly Service dues will automatically be charged to the credit card, debit card, or banking account info on file within Paypal every month until equipment is returned or Service is canceled by middle of nowhere Internet.
30-DAY MONEY BACK GUARANTEE
Each membership is subject to a trial period to test out the Device and Service, 30 days from the date the equipment is delivered. If the Device or Service does not meet member’s expectations, a refund for the One-Time Membership Fee -$50 for activation fee and Sim card will be issued when the Device has been shipped back within 30 days from when the equipment was delivered. The term “Device” refers to all equipment sent (e.g., antenna and power cords/charger, routers, and SIM cards). Devices returned after this period will not be entitled to a refund for the One-Time Setup Fee paid during the trial period. Monthly Service dues are non-refundable. For any refund requests, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, call or text 256-822-4745. Once we have received your refund request, we will provide the address to which the equipment needs to be shipped. The Customer is responsible for return shipping costs. Please be aware that you must contact us BEFORE a refund may be issued.
All Devices are the Middle of Nowhere Internet property and need to be returned to cancel the setup fee. Cancellation of setup fee can only occur when the Device(s) has been returned to the Middle of Nowhere Internet. The associated tracking information states that the unit has been received by the Middle of Nowhere Internet. Each Device sent out has its own corresponding billing subscription. There can be multiple subscriptions on one customer account. To avoid being billed for a Device you are no longer using, it is your responsibility to ship the Device back to Middle of Nowhere Internet. Devices are required to be returned in the manner that they were shipped. Please note that no modifications should be made to the Device–this includes, but is not limited to, the addition of any adhesive or tape, etc.
Devices returned in an unsatisfactory manner will be subject to forfeiture of the setup fee. You will receive a refund for your hardware when the Device is returned within your 30-day money-back trial period. Once the tracking information states the hardware has been received by Middle of Nowhere Internet, please allow Middle of Nowhere Internet 12-14 business days to process, inspect and test the unit. Refunds may take up to 30 days to reflect on your original payment method once the refund is initiated.
Once we have received your return request, we will inform you of where to return the equipment. Please be aware that you must contact us BEFORE you return any item; please contact us at email@example.com.
DO NOT SHIP anything before we respond to your return request and other instructions. Please keep any return shipment receipts from the shipping carrier as we are not responsible for the loss or damage of your return shipments.
For Service cancellation requests, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
