This Agreement governs
the terms and conditions associated with your subscription and use of Call
Select’s Direct Dial and Dial Up services (the “Services”, each individually, a
“Service”). This Agreement applies to subscribers of the Services for calls
and international long-distance calls.
BY ENROLLING IN, USING, OR PAYING FOR THE SERVICES, YOU

WHICH YOU HAVE AGREED UPON, CHARGES, TERMS AND
CONDITIONS IN THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE PRICES, CHARGES,
TERMS AND CONDITIONS, DO NOT USE
THE SERVICES, AND CANCEL THE
SERVICES IMMEDIATELY BY CALLING CALL SELECT AT 416-663-9600 FOR FURTHER
THIS AGREEMENT INCORPORATES BY REFERENCE THE PRICES,
CHARGES, TERMS AND CONDITIONS
INCLUDED IN THIS DOCUMENT.
General. You agree to pay us for the
Services at the listed prices. The prices and charges for any particular
Package may depend on a number of Services requested. Charges may include fixed charges based on
the calling plan subscribed.
Charges will commence on the date of
the initial activation of the Services or the Equipment, whichever is earlier.
Unless otherwise agreed to by you
and us, we will bill you monthly. However, we may bill you for a past charge up
to six months from the date the charge was incurred.
Changes to your account (e.g., price
plan, features or identifiers) will not take effect immediately from the time
customer contacts Call Select customer service. All calls are billed in 1 minute
The Customer is liable for all
charges to its account. It shall pay the charges in full for use of Services
billed to the Customer's account, regardless of who used the Services, the
location of the person whose use of the Services resulted in such charges, or
the method used to access the Services, and for all goods and services, sales
and other taxes applicable to the use of the Services.
All charges relating to the Services
are due and payable on the due date stated on the Customer's bill. If payment
of an amount due on the account is not received by us by the required payment
date specified on the billing statement, the Customer shall pay late payment
charges on overdue charges at a monthly rate of 1.5%, calculated and compounded
monthly on the delinquent amount from the date of the first invoice on which
the delinquent amount appears until the date we receive such amount in full.
You agree that we can charge any unpaid and outstanding amount, including any
late payment charges on your account to your chosen method of payment
In the event of a price increase, customers will be provided 14 day notice which will be posted on Call Select’s website at www.callselect.ca. You will have the option of accepting the new terms of the Agreement, or terminating your subscription with Call Select. If you do not accept a change to this Agreement, your sole remedy is to terminate this Agreement. If we do not hear from you, we will assume you have accepted the charges and terms of the Agreement.
Payment is due upon receipt of your bill. To avoid a late
payment charge, please pay by the Payment Due Date printed on your bill. A Late
Payment Charge of 1.5% will be applied to the total unpaid balance which
remains after the Payment Due Date. Call Select reserves the right to charge a $50 administration fee for all accounts remitted to collection. Once the account is placed with a collection agency a 2% per month interest (24% Annum) will be applied to the overall outstanding balance until such time that the balance is cleared.
If Call Select is you Primary Interexchange Carrier “PIC” (your long distance provider on your phone line) and you switch local phone companies, your PIC long distance services with Call Select will cease automatically and you will be billed by your local phone company for all long distance calls. If you have not called Call Select to cancel long distance service, Call Select will make reasonable efforts to restore your long distance service back to Call Select when possible. Notwithstanding, under no circumstances will Call Select be held liable for long distance charges from any other phone companies due to error or omissions by Call Select. Outside of the United States all long distance charges on your bill will already include an additional currency exchange rate to the US dollar which is subject to change based on market conditions.
