InstantConference Terms & Conditions

1. AGREEMENT

These Terms of Use (the "Agreement") constitute a legally binding agreement by and between InstantConference.com. ("InstantConference.com") and you or your company (in either case, "You" or "Your") concerning Your use of InstantConference.com’s website (the "Website") and the conferencing services offered by InstantConference.com in association with the Website (the "Services"). By using the Website and Services, You represent and warrant that You have read and understood, and agree to be bound by, this Agreement. IF YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND THIS AGREEMENT, OR DO NOT AGREE TO BE BOUND BY IT, YOU MUST IMMEDIATELY LEAVE THE WEBSITE AND REFRAIN FROM USING THE SERVICES IN ANY WAY.

2. SERVICES

InstantConference offers a combination of free and paid services. Included in all InstantConference's service packages is a toll-based conference calling service. It lets users from different locations connect via a dial-in, toll-based U.S. phone number, enter the same access code and connect all of their phone lines. All service packages- except Choice - include an allowance of conferences, minutes and number of participants that can join each conference without incurring an overage charge. Once any of these allowances are exceeded, then all activity for the remainder of Your billing cycle will be charged at the overage rate. The overage rate varies by the plan You choose and is billed per person, per-minute. Overage rates are posted on the website. All callers are individually responsible for paying any incurred long distance phone charges to the conference bridge.

InstantConference Toll-Free Service provides toll-free (800 number) service for a set fee, which is posted on the website. Each caller dials a toll-free (800) number from a different location and is connected together via InstantConference's conferencing bridges. InstantConference Toll-Free Service is billed per person, per-minute. The Subscriber of the service (the person with a credit card on file) is responsible for payment of all incurred minutes for all participants on the call. InstantConference provides call detail records of each call (minus some data that is withheld for purposes of privacy) as a convenience of the service.

3. GENERAL PAYMENT INFORMATION

Fees associated with premium services such as Toll-Free and other service packages are charged to the Subscriber's credit card at either the completion of the conference or on a monthly basis as agreed upon during the sign up process. For billing purposes, all minutes are billed until the call ends when the last participant hangs up.

These charges will appear on Your credit card statement as "Conference Call Services." All charged fees are non-refundable. Federal Universal Service Fund fee applies. An additional charge will appear as a line item on Your conference call receipt. This fee is calculated as a percentage of all per minute premium services. The fee that InstantConference applies is the same as the FCC's universal service contribution factor. The current contribution factor can be found at www.fcc.gov/omd/contribution-factor.html. This contribution factor is subject to change.

InstantConference charges the Subscriber's credit card a per-minute charge, rounded to the next minute, for each caller, (including international and domestic callers using the Alternative Dial-in Number if applicable) or a monthly fee depending on what service the Subscriber has signed up for.

InstantConference reserves the right to change pricing of Services at any time. All changes will be posted on the website at www.instantconferece.com and such postings will be considered sufficient notice to You. Continued use of the Service after posting, signifies acceptance of the changes by You. You are responsible for regularly reviewing the website for such posted changes.
