We’ll acknowledge receipt of your order and contact you if we are able to accept your offer. Upon acceptance you enter into a contract with us for the purchase of the particular Services and Equipment.

At the time of acceptance we’ll provide you with further details of when we expect to be able to process your order.

What Equipment does Crossbill Telecom provide?

We’ll provide you with the Equipment that you order on the Order Form or through our Website.

Where we provide any Equipment without cost to you, we agree to loan the Equipment to you for as long as you continue to receive the Services under these Terms. Risk shall pass to you upon delivery but the Equipment shall remain our property and you agree to suitably insure it while it is loaned to you.

Where you purchase Equipment from us, risk shall pass to you upon delivery but the Equipment shall remain our property until such time as payment is received in full. We shall have no liability in respect of Equipment lost or damaged in transit unless and until you note such loss or damage within 5 working days of delivery or expected delivery.

Upon termination of these Terms or the relevant service as appropriate, any loaned Equipment must be returned to: Crossbill Telecom Cash’s Business Centre, 228 Widdrington Road, Coventry CV1 4PB.

Any Equipment not returned to us will be billed to you as a Fee at the recommend retail price for the missing Equipment. Please note that if you choose to keep any Equipment after we stop providing Services, it is supplied to you ‘as is’, without warranty and without support.

If your Equipment is faulty, we will repair or replace it during the first 12 months without charge, providing the fault is not caused by abuse or negligence while in your care. Replacement items of Equipment are available on payment of the applicable replacement items Fee(s). You will need to return any faulty or replaced items of Equipment to: Crossbill Telecom, Cash’s Business Centre, 228 Widdrington Road, Coventry CV1 4PB.

You will need to ensure that suitable mains electricity, power over ethernet and network cabling are available as applicable where you would like the Equipment to be installed.

How do you get connected?

For our Telephony Service, we’ll preconfigure and dispatch any Equipment to you. Where you wish to port numbers, we’ll advise you on if that’s possible and how long it will take. If we are transferring an existing telephone line, we’ll let you know how long that will take. If we are installing a new telephone line, an engineer will need to come and install it and we’ll provide you with the details. Obviously you agree to provide any reasonable cooperation and assistance that may be required to get you connected. It’s important that you don’t miss any appointments as we pass any such charges on to you.

For our Broadband Service, we’ll either provision it on a telephone line that we are also installing or on an existing line and preconfigure and dispatch any Equipment to you. We’ll try to make sure that you get the fastest broadband internet connection possible, but the actual speed will depend on your actual line (e.g. the distance of your premises from the telephone exchange, the quality of your copper line and environmental line noise will all impact your actual speeds), so we cannot guarantee that your connection will reach any specific speeds.

For our Mobile Service, we will dispatch your SIMs to you and any other Equipment that you have ordered.

For our Leased Line Service, please see the section ‘What do I need to know about the Leased Line Service?’

If after receiving or accepting your order, we cannot provide you with a particular Service, we’ll notify you. That particular Service will terminate in respect of these Terms and any Charges you have paid will be refunded to you.

Please also be advised that we have the right to terminate these Terms without liability after confirmation of acceptance has been sent but before you have been connected if: (a) you fail a credit check; (b) we are not able to provide our Services to your premises by the expected connection date for any reason; or (c) if you are not in a geographical area covered by us. If we end these Terms before connection (other than as a result of your own act or omission), any Charges you have paid will be refunded to you.

A consumer will, subject to any exceptions or exclusions set out in the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000, be entitled to cancel the Services and/or return the Equipment by serving written notice of cancellation to us within seven working days of either receiving the Equipment from us or after the date upon which you enter into these Terms with us. In such event, you must return all the Equipment to us at your own cost. A consumer will not be entitled to cancel these Terms for the supply of Services once performance of the Services has started.

Where you receive our Services and/or Equipment not as a consumer (that is, within the course of a trade or business), no Equipment supplied by us shall be accepted for return without our prior consent. If you want to end your Services before you are connected for any reason you may do so, but you must agree to pay the cancellation fees to terminate a Service or these Terms.

You agree to use our Services for your own use only and not to resell any Service without our written permission.

What is the contract period and how does it end?

The Services you order are subject to the minimum term as set out on the Order Form or on our Website when you order. The minimum term for each Service starts from the date that that respective Service is fully provisioned or activated. After the minimum term has expired, the Services will roll on a monthly basis.

After the minimum term for a Service has elapsed, you can terminate that Service at any time without paying any cancellation fees, providing you give us one (1) months’ notice of termination. This means that if you wish to terminate these Terms or a particular Service prior to the expiry of the minimum term, you will be required to pay the charges associated with the remaining portion of the minimum term.

We alone may terminate these Terms, terminate a particular Service or suspend Services if you don’t pay us by the due date any money you owe us; or you misuse our Service (see our Fair and acceptable usage policy); or we suspect any fraudulent use; or if we are required to do so by a competent or regulatory authority or network provider; or for any reason without cause. They may be a reconnection charge if we suspend your Service.

If we are entitled to suspend your Service then all Charges for your Service will remain payable by you notwithstanding such suspension. If we are entitled to terminate your Service (other than without cause), then we will be entitled to charge you for the Charges which would have been payable to us as if you had provided us with a termination notice on the date of such termination.

Either you or us may terminate these Terms by giving thirty (30) days’ written notice to the other:

  • if there has been a material breach of these Terms by the other party and this isn’t remedied within fourteen (10) days of a written notice notifying the breach;
  • if an event, outside its reasonable control, prevents continued provision of the Services for more than thirty (30) days;
  • if the other is unable to pay its debts (within the meaning of section 123 of the Insolvency Act 1986); or becomes insolvent or bankrupt; or is subject to an order or a resolution for its liquidation, administration, winding-up or dissolution (otherwise than for the purposes of a solvent amalgamation or reconstruction); or makes an application to a court of competent jurisdiction for protection from its creditors generally; or has an administrative or other receiver, manager, trustee, liquidator, administrator or similar officer appointed over all or any substantial part of its assets; or enters into or proposes any composition or arrangement with its creditors generally; or is subject to any analogous event or proceeding in any applicable jurisdiction.

What are Crossbill Telecoms payment terms and charges?

You have a responsibility to pay the fees that apply to the Services you’re receiving from us (the “Charges”). These Charges are in British pounds sterling and payable from the day that the Services are installed or provisioned. Recurring Charges will be collected monthly in advance, while one-off fees will be collected in arrears. Our invoices are due 10 days after the invoice date. We’ll collect the amount invoiced to you via direct debit on or shortly after the due date.

Our call charges are set out in our tariff on our Website and all calls you make will be subject to this tariff unless otherwise agreed in writing with us.

Our Charges include the following Fees:

  • Telephone connection fee – the cost of installing a new telephone line through BT Openreach.
  • Broadband connection fee – the cost of activating broadband.
  • Broadband line rental – the rental for the Broadband Service.
  • Broadband overage fee – the price for additional data per gigabyte above and beyond the broadband data allowance included with your Broadband Service.
  • Broadband cease charge – a charge levied by BT Openreach if you cancel a broadband service.
  • BT Openreach special charges – other charges paid by us that are passed through at cost to you from BT Openreach (e.g. abortive visit charges, specialist wiring work, engineer repair visits).
  • Cancellation fees – due in the event that you cancel a Service during the minimum term or without providing the required notice.
  • Equipment fees – for any equipment purchased from us including routers, handsets, SIMs, adaptors, power supplies and any other computer, network and telephony equipment.
  • Mobile fees – the fees for your Mobile Services including fixed periodic charges, usage charges and domestic and international call charges.
  • Delivery Fee – the cost of delivery of Equipment to your premises.
  • Additional charges – additional or supplemental services or equipment which you have asked us to provide.

These charges may vary from time to time and all Fees are non-refundable unless otherwise stated. We may impose a credit limit of your account and/or require a deposit as security for paying your bills.

We accept payment by direct debit and you agree to complete, return and maintain a direct debit mandate to pay us. If your bank details change you must notify us immediately to ensure continuity of your Services. You agree to inform us if your direct debit authority is terminated at any time. If a direct debit payment fails, we may contact you to arrange payment and you will be liable to pay interest and late payment fees under these Terms. If we cannot contact you after a failed direct debit payment, we may suspend or terminate the Services and these Terms without further notice. Please note that we charge £8.99 per month if you don’t pay via direct debit.

Please also be advised that we reserve the right to change prices including our tariffs at any time, by either giving you notice in writing which will include sending an email to the email address you provide to us or by updating the pricing on our Website.

You must pay us all sums due to us in full and you cannot deduct or withhold any part of the sums you owe us, except as permitted by law. Please be advised that in the event of us not receiving full payment for Services provided, we have the right to suspend or terminate your Services and take any steps necessary to recover the amount due (including any costs incurred collecting the funds owed).

All prices shown on our Website and Order Forms are exclusive of VAT and our invoices show VAT payable as a separate item on each invoice. In any event you are liable to pay VAT on all Services provided.

What happens if there are Service interruptions?

We’ll take reasonable measures to rectify any interruptions or faults in the Services that we provide. However, we cannot be held responsible for disruptions caused as a result of war, strikes, natural disasters or other ‘acts of God’ and shall not be liable for any delay or failure in the performance of its obligations to the extent that such delay or failure is attributable to matters beyond our reasonable control.

We or our network providers may need to make changes to its network or the technical specification of a Service or may need to suspend provision of the Services for operational or technical reasons. We’ll use all reasonable endeavours to notify you in advance of such changes or suspension if it materially affects your Services. Obviously we’ll do everything which is reasonably within our power to minimise the effect of these disruptions on you.

It is technically impossible for us to provide fault-free Services at all times. But, we’re committed to providing you with Services that have as few disruptions as possible. We cannot guarantee the quality and coverage of our mobile network providers’ wireless network or signal strength.

If we reasonably believe that you are using the Services in breach of your obligations in these Terms, including use of the Services in breach of our Fair and acceptable usage policy, we may without liability or further notice suspend Services or in certain circumstances terminate the Services or these Terms.

What do I need to know about Voice over IP (VoIP) Telephony Service?

By purchasing our Telephony Service, you must understand that there are some limitation of VoIP technology:

  • It may not offer all of the features you may expect from a conventional phone line.
  • It may sometimes be unavailable as a result of things over which we have no control (e.g. the weather, loss of power, failures of your internet connection) and you understand that in such circumstances all services (including 999/112 emergency services) will also be unavailable.
  • Where you use our Telephony Service without our Broadband Service then there is a greater likelihood of connectivity and quality of service problems.
  • Connectivity to the 999/112 emergency services will be provided only to the extent that is technically feasible. As a result, you may have to provide your location information and phone number verbally to the operator. You may not be connected to the domestic emergency service upon dialling outside of mainland England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
  • You must register the physical location of each handset with us. This will default to the site address at which we set up the Telephony Service for you. Failure to update us with any changes will result in emergency operators unable to identify your location and phone number when you dial 999/112.
  • Emergency operators may or may not be able to identify your phone number in order to call you back if the call is unable to be completed, is dropped or disconnected, or if you are unable to speak to tell them your phone number and/or if the Service is not operational for any reason. Emergency operators may also not be able to hold your line open in the event that you hang up.
  • If we suspend or terminate the Telephony Service, you may not be able to dial 999/112.
  • You agree to inform potential users of the Services of the above limitations and you understand and accept that you should always have an alternative means of accessing 999/112 emergency services.

What do I need to know about Mobile Services?

We are providing you with Mobile Services using approved devices, SIMs and network resources provided by our network providers both in the UK and abroad.

You must ensure that all your SIMs are used in accordance with these Terms. The SIMs remain the property of the network providers at all times and you are granted a limited license to use the SIMs to access the Mobile Services. We may recall the SIMs at any time. You must only use the SIMs in approved devices.

The Mobile Service may include premium services such as international calling and roaming. If using the Mobile Service abroad, your use of the Services may be subject to the laws and regulations that apply in that country. We are not liable for any failure to comply with those laws or regulations.

When the Mobile Service ends, we will disconnect all your SIMs and you will not be able to use the Mobile Service or make calls to the emergency services.

What do I need to know about the Leased Line Service?

Leased lines are either Ethernet in the First Mile (“EFM”) or dedicated fibre circuits that either connect to the internet or connect two sites together without internet (“Point to Point”). You can also have multiple circuits to provide higher resiliency.

Leased lines are a bespoke service and installation time and costs vary from case to case. We’ll need to do a site survey within 30 days of accepting your order or the order will automatically cancel. After the site survey, we’ll know if any additional Charges will apply and if so, you’ll need to agree to these Charges. If you don’t wish to accept the Charges or you don’t agree to any extra Charges within 25 days, the order will simply cancel with no cancellation fees.

If the site survey does not identify any extra Charges, the order will automatically proceed. If the site survey identifies additional Charges and you accept them, the order will proceed.

After this point, if you wish to cancel the Service before it is installed, there will be cancellation charges which will be passed on at cost to you along with an administration fee for our time. These cancellation charges will be applicable irrespective of the reason for your cancellation. For the avoidance of doubt, any other cancellation period as set out in these Terms does not apply to Leased Line Services.

Access to the site may be required for:

  • A site survey to be conducted by BT Openreach.
  • Broadband provision (alarm monitoring).
  • Fibre provisioning.
  • Fibre splicing.
  • Fibre end to end testing.
  • Operational testing and handover testing.

If site access or a site survey is arranged for us or our technical partner or agent for the purposes of installation and/or configuration and is subsequently refused, not possible or cancelled, we reserve the right to recover in full any costs associated with the lack of site access or cancellation of site survey.

We bill quarterly in advance for leased lines and we may require you to pay the installation charges and any excess construction charges before we proceed with the installation of your Service.

Each leased line will come with a service level policy to ensure that any faults are rectified within a certain time frame. Where we fail to meet the service level policy for a leased line, we will issue service credits for the time you were without service in accordance with our Leased Line Service Level Policy.

What happens if you move premises?

If your new premises are in an area that’s covered by our Services, the Services will need be moved to your new premises, but connection fees may need to be paid.

If we are unable to provide Services to your new premises, then our standard cancellation terms of either one (1) months’ notice (after the minimum term of Service) will apply.

What are your obligations?

You agree that you will at all times:

  • Comply fully with these Terms and any reasonable instructions we give you
  • Comply with the terms set out in our Fair and acceptable usage policy (as published on our Website from time to time) and ensure that any others using our Services via your account also comply
  • Keep your security information (such as passwords and PINs) safe and tell us immediately and change your security information if you become aware of any improper disclosure or unauthorised use of the Services through your account

  • Indemnify us against all losses, liabilities, costs (including legal costs) and expenses which we may incur as a result of any third party claims against us arising from, or in connection with your use or misuse of the Services or breach of these Terms
  • All amounts due to us shall be paid in full (without deduction or withholding except as required by law) and you shall not be entitled to assert any credit, set-off or counterclaim against us in order to justify withholding payment of any such amount in whole or in part

From time to time, we may (without notice to you) review, record or check your use of our Services where we are required to do so to ensure compliance with any laws or regulations or where ordered to do so by any court or other body or authority with the power to require such monitoring and to ensure compliance with these Terms and the Fair and acceptable usage policy.

CRAs also link your records together and these links will remain on your and their files until such time as you or your partner successfully files for a disassociation with the CRAs to break that link.

3) Information on applications will be sent to CRAs and will be recorded by them. Where you borrow from us, we will give details of your accounts and how you manage it/them to CRAs. If you borrow and do not repay in full and on time, CRAs will record the outstanding debt. This information may be supplied to other organisations by CRAs and FPAs to perform similar checks and to trace your whereabouts and recover debts that you owe. Records remain on file for 6 years after they are closed, whether settled by you or defaulted.

4) If you give us false or inaccurate information and we suspect or identify fraud we will record this and may also pass this information to FPAs and other organisations involved in crime and fraud prevention.

5) If you have borrowed from us and do not make payments that you owe us, we will trace your whereabouts and recover debts.

6) We and other organisations may access and use from other countries the information recorded by fraud prevention agencies.

Important Data Protection: Guide to the use of your personal data by Crossbill Telecom and Credit Reference and Fraud Prevention Agencies

Q: What is a credit reference agency?

A: Credit reference agencies (CRAs) collect and maintain information on consumers’ and businesses’ credit behaviour, on behalf of organisations in the UK.

Q: What is a fraud prevention agency?

A: Fraud Prevention Agencies (FPAs) collect, maintain and share, information on known and suspected fraudulent activity. Some CRAs also act as FPAs.

Q: Why do you use them when I have applied to your organisation?

A: Although you have applied to us [organisation name] and we will check our own records, we will also contact CRAs to get information on your credit behaviour with other organisations. This will help us make the best possible assessment of your overall situation before we make a decision.

Q: Where do they get the information?

A : • publicly available information: -

- The Electoral Register from Local Authorities

- County Court Judgments from Registry Trust.

- Bankruptcy (and other similar orders) from the Insolvency Service.

• Fraud information may also come from fraud prevention agencies.

• Credit information comes from information on applications to banks, building
societies, credit card companies etc and also from the conduct of those accounts.

Q: How will I know if my information is to be sent to a CRA or FPA?

A: You will be told when you apply for an account if your application data is to be supplied. The next section of this leaflet will tell you how, when and why we will search at CRAs and FPAs and what we will do with the information we obtain from them. We will also tell you if we plan to send payment history information on you or your business, if you have one, to CRAs. You can ask at any time the name of CRAs and FPAs.

Q: Why is my data used in this way?

A: We and other organisations want to make the best possible decisions we can, in order to make sure that you, or your business, will be able to repay us. Some organisations may also use the information to check your identity. In this way we can ensure that we all make responsible decisions. At the same time we also want to make decisions quickly and easily and, by using up to date information, provided electronically, we are able to make the most reliable and fair decisions possible.

Q: Who controls what such agencies are allowed to do with my data?

A: All organisations that collect and process personal data are regulated by the Data Protection Act 1998, overseen by the Information Commissioner’s Office. All credit reference agencies are in regular dialogue with the Commissioner. Use of the Electoral Register is controlled under the Representation of the People Act 2000.

Q: Can just anyone look at my data held at credit reference agencies?

A: No, access to your information is very strictly controlled and only those that are entitled to do so, may see it. Usually that will only be with your agreement or (very occasionally) if there is a legal requirement.

Please read this section very carefully,it will vary from lender to lender

[1] A financial associate will be someone with whom you have a personal relationship that creates a joint financial unit in a similar way to a married couple. You will have been living at the same address at the time. It is not intended to include temporary arrangements such as students or rented flat sharers or business relationships.

[2] A small business is defined as an organisation which might be sole trader, partnership or a limited company that has three or less partners or directors.

[3] Credit reference agencies may link together the records of people that are part of a financial unit. They may do this when people are known to be linked, such as being married or have jointly applied for credit or have joint accounts. They may also link people together if they, themselves, state that they are financially linked.

[4] Exclude this if the application is being processed as opted-out.

[5] Financial associates (see 1 a) iii) may “break the link” between them if their circumstances change such that they are no longer a financial unit. They should apply for their credit file from a credit reference agency and file for a “disassociation”.
