Eligibility for V7 ISP Network Services
V7 ISP Network Services For Businesses & Landlords
Who Is Eligible for V7 ISP Network Services
You may apply for V7 ISP Network Services online at isp.Ventra7.com. Although we hope to make V7 ISP Network available to as many people and businesses as possible as quickly as we can, V7 ISP Network reserves the right to determine whether any Services are made available to a particular address.
If V7 ISP Network determines that the address at which you receive Services is not a business address, V7 ISP Network may require you to transition to another type of account in order to continue receiving the Services. This transition may include an increase in any fee for the Services.
V7 ISP Network Installation
You agree to provide V7 ISP Network with all necessary access to the premises at the address where you sign up for Services to be installed (referred to as “your premises” below) so that the equipment necessary for you to receive the Services may be installed and configured. You agree that V7 ISP Network may install equipment on the exterior and interior of your premises (including but not limited to laying underground conduit and/or affixing equipment to the outside of your building or facility) at any reasonable location. You also agree that V7 ISP Network may use, and that you have the necessary permissions to approve V7 ISP Network’s use of, existing facilities, including existing wiring in and around your premises, to complete the installation services.
If you rent or otherwise do not own your premises, you represent and warrant that you are authorized by the property owner to order V7 ISP Network installation, and you acknowledge that you may be asked to provide written evidence that you have received all permissions necessary for V7 ISP Network to perform installation services. If V7 ISP Network incurs any costs or losses, including attorneys’ fees, because you did not get the necessary authorization(s) for V7 ISP Network to install the equipment required for the Services, you are responsible for reimbursing V7 ISP Network for those costs or losses.
Acceptance of these Terms does not guarantee that V7 ISP Network will install or provide any Services. We may need a separate agreement with you or your landlord in order to install the Services.

V7 ISP NETWORK EQUIPMENT
V7 ISP Network may provide or rent various pieces of equipment to you in connection with the Services.

SERVICE COMMITMENT AND PRICE GUARANTEE
When you subscribe to V7 ISP Network for Small Business, you do not enter into a service commitment and are free to cancel at any time. However, you agree to pay recurring monthly service fees in advance of the billing cycle in which you will receive the Services, so any request for cancellation will take effect at the end of the billing cycle. See the Billing and
Payment and Changing and Canceling Services; Termination sections below.
The pricing you receive when you subscribe to V7 ISP Network for Small Business will remain valid for at least twelve (12) months from the date your Services are installed.

If you order V7 ISP Network for Small Business we will provide you with a Network Box or you can use your own router. If you do use your own router, you are responsible for making sure that your router is used in accordance with our Terms of Service, including our Acceptable Use Policy. Although we hope to make the Service compatible with as many network routers as possible, we cannot guarantee that your router will work with the Service. You must use your own router if you order the 5 or 13 static IP add-on options.
USING V7 ISP NETWORK SERVICES
You agree not to misuse the Services, which includes using the Services for purposes that are illegal, are improper, infringe the rights of others, or adversely impact others’ enjoyment of the Services. Examples of misuses and prohibited activities are set forth in our Acceptable Use
Policy for Small Business Subscribers, which is incorporated into these Terms. You are responsible for all activity on the Services, whether such activity is undertaken by you or someone else.
As described in the Acceptable Use Policy, you may not resell the Services directly or indirectly. You agree, for example, not to provide the Services in hotel rooms, dormitory rooms in residence halls, private hospital rooms, or shared or rented office spaces that are paid for by customers. You may, however, provide the Services in common areas on your premises, such as lobbies or waiting areas.
If you are using the Services in a premises or other location that you do not own or control (such as a multiple unit building, strip mall, office park, etc.), you may have agreements related to the Services with property owners, managers, or other third parties outside these Terms; V7 ISP Network is not a party to such agreements and therefore is not responsible for nor bound by such agreements.
In addition to the restrictions in Ventra7, LLC’s Terms of Service regarding your right to use any branding or logos used in our Services, you may not use our branding or logos to market or advertise your business.
RESALE AND REDISTRIBUTION
The Services are intended to be used by you, your employees, your customers and other users in the ordinary course of business. You agree not to resell or repackage the Services or otherwise make them available to anyone outside of your premises.
Rights & Licenses
Credit, Licensure, and Rights
V7 ISP Network makes an effort to keep its network secure, but no network security is perfect. While V7 ISP Network may provide technical assistance to you, you are responsible for implementing appropriate security measures when using the Services, including taking whatever steps are necessary to ensure that your data is not accessed by unauthorized third parties. V7 ISP Network is not responsible for any damages to users of the Services that may be caused by unauthorized third parties.
BILLING AND PAYMENT
You agree to pay any and all applicable fees for the Services you purchase, whether ordered by you, someone authorized by you or someone with access to the Services pursuant to your V7 ISP Network account.
V7 ISP Network will send all bills and other required notices by email to the address associated with your account. You may also access this information through your online V7 ISP Network account. You agree to pay recurring monthly service fees in advance of the billing cycle in which you will receive the Services. V7 ISP Network will bill one-time charges in the billing cycle following your authorization of such charges.
You authorize V7 ISP Network to automatically collect payments of any and all fees associated with your use of the Services from your designated payment method. V7 ISP Network will email a bill to the email address associated with your account. The bill will indicate the date the amount you owe will be collected via your designated payment method (which may be the same date your bill is sent if permitted by applicable laws). If payment is not received due to insufficient funds or for any other reason, V7 ISP Network may, consistent with applicable laws, assess late payment fees and/or suspend or terminate the Services if payment is more than thirty (30) days past due. You agree that V7 ISP Network is not responsible for any third party charges you may incur in connection with your Ventra7 Payments account, credit card or other payment method.
You may need to utilize Ventra7 Payments for certain payment transactions related to the Services. Your use of Ventra7 Payments is subject to the V7 Payments Terms of Service and V7 Payments Privacy Notice, which you must accept before using Ventra7 Payments services.
Insurance, Liability, Worker’s Comp, etc.
CHANGING AND CANCELING SERVICES; TERMINATION
You may change or cancel the Services at any time, but you may be required to pay for certain construction or installation fees that may have been waived when you signed up for the Service. (As noted above, any construction fee would have been disclosed to you during sign-up.) You may also be required to return some or all of the equipment. If you do not return this equipment, you may be required to pay a replacement fee.
When you change your Service by upgrading or downgrading your package, the fees will be prorated based upon the date that your Service changes.
If you request cancellation of all your Services, your Services will be available until the cancellation date you select. Once your service is disconnected, a credit for the remaining portion of the current billing cycle will be applied towards any remaining balance. Your V7 ISP Network account will not be terminated until all billing obligations are resolved. If there is a credit balance at the time your account is terminated, it will be refunded to the last used payment method in your V7 ISP Network account.
If your Services included free or paid-for subscriptions to services other than those provided by V7 ISP Network (for example, Ventra7 Drive), V7 ISP Network will stop covering the costs of those services at the time your account is terminated or suspended. It will be up to you to work with the provider of those services to determine whether you wish to continue subscribing to those services and how you will pay for them.
V7 ISP Network reserves the right to terminate some or all of the Services it provides to you at any time, in its sole discretion without notice.

V7 ISP Network is committed to online safety for minors, and V7 ISP Network complies with all applicable laws related to protecting minors online.

BUSINESS USES OF OUR SERVICES
If you are using our Services on behalf of a business, that business accepts these terms. It will hold harmless and indemnify V7 ISP Network and its affiliates, officers, agents, and employees from any claim, suit or action arising from or related to the use of the Services or violation of these Terms, including any liability or expense arising from claims, losses, damages, suits, judgments, litigation costs and attorneys’ fees.
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW IF YOU WISH TO OPT OUT OF THE PROVISIONS REQUIRING YOU TO RESOLVE DISPUTES THROUGH INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION.
Arbitration. V7 ISP Network and you agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims that arise from or relate to these Terms or the Services, except for claims arising from bodily injury. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted, including, for example:
• claims arising under any legal theory;
• claims for mental or emotional distress or other emotional/mental injury arising from the
relationship between us;
• claims that arose before you accepted these Terms (such as claims related to disclosures or the marketing of the Services);
• claims that may arise after the termination of your use of the Services or any agreement between us; and
• claims brought by or against our respective subsidiaries, parent companies (including Ventra7, LLC whether or not it is a parent company at the time of the dispute), members, as well as the respective officers, directors, employees, agents, predecessors, successors, and assigns of these entities, you, and V7 ISP Network.
This arbitration agreement does not preclude either you or V7 ISP Network from bringing an individualized action in small claims court. It also does not preclude either of us from seeking an individualized preliminary injunction or temporary restraining order, pending arbitration, in any court that has jurisdiction. Nor does this arbitration agreement bar you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against V7 ISP Network on your behalf.
You agree that, by entering into this agreement, we are each waiving the right to a trial in a court or to participate in a class or representative action. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration provision.
Notice of disputes. If either of us intends to seek arbitration of a dispute, that party must provide the other with notice in writing. The notice to V7 ISP Network should be sent to V7 ISP Network’s agent for service of process, Corporation Service Company (“CSC”), at the following address (“V7 ISP Network Notice Address”):
V7 ISP Network Inc. c/o Thompson Lossada 1055 W 7th St, Suite 3300, Los Angeles, CA 90017 (If you instead would like to provide notice to V7 ISP Network through TL outside of California,
you may be able to find other addresses for TL by searching for “V7 ISP Network” on the website of the Secretary of State for other states.) V7 ISP Network will send notice to you at the e-mail and mailing addresses associated with your account. Your notice to V7 ISP Network must (a) provide your name, mailing address, email address, and your V7 ISP Network account number; (b) describe the dispute; and (c) state the relief you are requesting. If we are unable to reach an agreement to resolve the dispute within 60 days after the notice is received, you or we may commence arbitration. Unless we agree otherwise, your demand for arbitration should be sent to V7 ISP Network at the V7 ISP Network Notice Address above (or through the alternative TL address as indicated above).
Arbitration procedures. The arbitration will be governed by your choice between the Commercial Arbitration Rules or the Consumer Arbitration Rules (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online at www.adr.org. If the AAA is unavailable, the parties shall agree to another arbitration provider or the court shall appoint a substitute. Unless we agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) of your residence (or principal place of business if you are a small business). If the value of your claim is $10,000 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, by telephone, or by an in-person hearing. If the value of
your claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to the scope and enforceability of this arbitration provision or the arbitrability of disputes are for the court to decide. The arbitrator may consider but is not bound by rulings in other arbitrations between V7 ISP Network and V7 ISP Network residential subscribers. The arbitrator can award the same individualized damages and relief that a court can award. Judgment on the award may be entered by any court having jurisdiction.
Costs of arbitration. The AAA’s fee schedule is subject to change and may be found in the AAA Rules (available online at www.adr.org). V7 ISP Network will pay all AAA filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees for any arbitration that Ventra7 commences. If you provided V7 ISP Network with 30 days’ notice of your intent to arbitrate before commencing arbitration and the value of your claim is $75,000 or less, V7 ISP Network will pay your share of any such AAA fees. If the value of your claim is between $75,000 and $300,000, your share of any such fees will be capped at $200 (unless the law of your state requires V7 ISP Network to pay all such fees). And if the value of your claim exceeds $300,000, the allocation of AAA fees will be governed by the AAA Rules (unless the law of your state requires V7 ISP Network to pay all such fees). If, however, the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all AAA fees shall be governed by the AAA Rules. In such cases, the arbitrator may direct you to reimburse V7 ISP Network for amounts that V7 ISP Network paid on your behalf.
No class arbitration. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. YOU AND V7 ISP Network AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL PROCEEDING. Further, unless all affected parties agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If a court decides that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this subsection’s limitations as to a particular claim for relief, then that claim (and only that claim) must be severed from the arbitration and may be brought in court.
Future changes to arbitration provision. If V7 ISP Network makes any changes to this Disputes section of these Terms (other than a change to the address at which V7 ISP Network will receive notices of dispute), you may reject any such change by completing this online change rejection form. It is not necessary to reject a future change to this arbitration provision if you had properly opted out of this arbitration provision within the first 30 days after you accepted these Terms. By rejecting a future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this arbitration provision, as modified by any changes you did not reject.
CHANGES TO THESE TERMS
We may modify these Terms to, for example, reflect changes to the law or changes to our Services. You should look at the Terms regularly. We’ll post notice of modifications to these terms on this page by indicating the date the Terms are last modified. Changes will not apply retroactively and will become effective no sooner than fourteen days after they are posted. However, changes addressing new functions for a Service, changes regarding the launch of a new Service, or changes made for legal reasons will be effective immediately. If you do not agree to the modified terms for a Service, you should discontinue your use of that Service and contact us to change or terminate your Services.
