This CUSTOMER AGREEMENT (which includes the supplemental documents which are expressly incorporated herein) comprises the entire agreement between Customer and Consensus and supersedes all prior agreements between the parties regarding the subject matter contained herein.

BY COMPLETING THE REGISTRATION PROCESS AND CLICKING THE "I ACCEPT" BUTTON, CUSTOMER IS INDICATING ITS AGREEMENT TO BE BOUND BY ALL OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS CUSTOMER AGREEMENT.1.1 CUSTOMER'S END USERS
CUSTOMER AGREES THAT IT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL INDIVIDUAL END USERS, INCLUDING ADMINISTRATORS AS DEFINED BELOW, WHO ACCESS AND/OR USE THE SERVICE THROUGH CUSTOMER’S CORPORATE ACCOUNT (" End Users"). Accordingly, the terms, conditions, restrictions and obligations of this CUSTOMER AGREEMENT applicable to Customer (excluding Customer’s payment obligations to Consensus) shall be construed also to apply to all Customer’s End Users, and Customer shall be liable for any breach hereof by any of Customer’s End Users. Customer understands and agrees that Customer will have the ability to access all Customer’s End Users' account activity, including Customer’s altering the configuration of Customer’s End Users' accounts. Customer will provide to Customer’s End Users all due notices and information regarding Customer’s ability to access, view and control Customer’s End Users' use of the Service; and Customer will provide Customer’s End Users with sufficient written instruction to ensure Customer’s End Users use the Service in compliance with the terms, conditions, obligations and restrictions set forth herein. Customer acknowledges and agrees that Consensus "free" services, such as eFax Free® and jConnect Free and eVoice Free® ("Free Services") are for PERSONAL, NON-COMMERCIAL USE ONLY. Consensus is permitted from time-to-time to audit Customer’s use of Consensus Free Services by comparing Customer’s internal email domain name extensions with the email domain name extensions associated with Consensus Free Service accounts. Customer agrees to provide Consensus upon request with a list of all of domain name extensions used by Customer for its internal email, and to update that list from time-to-time as domain name extensions are added or deleted. In the event jConsensus discovers that any Free Service account has an email domain name extension identical to any of Customer’s internal email domain name extensions, Consensus will notify Customer and Customer will be required to either terminate the violating Free Service account or add that account to their account under this CUSTOMER AGREEMENT. Customer agrees to this CUSTOMER AGREEMENT) at the pricing applicable under this CUSTOMER AGREEMENT.
1.2 CUSTOMER'S ADMINISTRATOR
Once Member's eFax Corporate account is activated, Consensus will automatically send an administrator user name and password by email to the individual designated by Member in the registration process as Member's administrative contact (the "Administrator"). The Administrator can access eFax Corporate's Web-based administrative tool using the Administrator user name and password at the Web site designated by Consensus (the "Administrative Tool"). Through the Administrative Tool, the Administrator can assign, reassign or unassign Service telephone numbers to Member's Users. Member acknowledges and agrees that all Service telephone numbers assigned, reassigned or unassigned through the Administrative Tool shall be deemed to be active accounts for billing and all other purposes under this ETS. In order to remove a Service telephone number from Member's account, and thereby avoid charges for that account, Member must call the eFax Corporate Sales Department.
If you begin the sign up process for the eFax Corporate service process but fail to complete the process, j2 Cloud Services, Inc. may contact you in an effort to help you sign up for the services or other Company services that may be of interest. You hereby authorize Consensus to make such contact, even if you ultimately determine not to sign up for the Service.2. DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES
Consensus is providing Member with a capability to send and receive fax documents using electronic mail ("email") pursuant to the terms set forth herein. Member must: (1) provide all equipment necessary to receive email; (2) provide its own email address to which the fax documents will be routed; and (3) provide for its own access to an email service and pay any access, service or other fees associated with such email services.2.1 DESCRIPTION AND PRICE OF CORPORATE SERVICE
If you signed up for the thirty (30) day trial offer, the activation fee and the subscription fee will be waived for any DID’s added in the first thirty days from account creation. For DID’s added after the first thirty days, you will be charged a £9.00activation fee for all DID’s and £9.00 subscription fee for local DID’s and a £10.00 subscription fee for toll-free DIDs. As part of this trial offer, you will receive a one-time credit of £35 against your send usage which will expire sixty days following account creation. If you exceed the one-time £35 credit, you will be charged for any overage above the £35 credit. Also, as part of this trial offer, each DID will receive one hundred (100) inbound pages aggregated across the entire account and inbound overage will be charged at £0.06 per page and outbound overage will be charged at the rates set forth here.
In addition to the Corporate Service, Customer has the option to order one of Consensus secure Corporate Services, "eFax Secure™" or TLS encryption. Please note that a Customer is unable at this time to order both eFax Secure and TLS encryption. Through eFax Secure, Customer receives the same services as eFax Corporate except that an email notification is sent upon receipt of a fax, which contains a secure link to access the fax from a secure 128 SSL bit encrypted storage Inbox dedicated for that telephone number. TLS encryption service enables Consensus to route faxes to Customer through encrypted secure email. It ensures that all faxes sent to Customer through the Corporate Service will be routed through a single gateway and will be encrypted as they pass across the Internet. SMTP over TLS (SSL over SMTP) is implemented using the Extended SMTP (E-SMTP) protocol, and is detailed in RFC 3207. Consensus TLS transmissions use enforced TLS via an X.509 certificate exchange. The use of TLS is negotiated between SMTP servers by use of a single Service Extension to SMTP, known as STARTTLS. If the request is accepted, the two servers will validate each other's certificates and the channel then becomes encrypted. After this point, all communications between the servers will be private. For inbound faxing, Customer’s MTA (Mail Transfer Agent) provides its server certificate for authentication. For outbound faxing, Consensus MTA supplies its server certificate for authentication.
An additional £1.20 service fee (above and beyond standard eFax Corporate fees) applies for each Service Telephone Number on an eFax Secure Account.
The following additional service fees (above and beyond standard eFax Corporate fees) apply for TLS encryption:
|Activation Fee||Monthly License Fee per Account|
Consensus and Customer acknowledge and agree that Customer may be porting certain telephone numbers from Customer’s current telecommunications carrier(s) to Consensus telecommunications carrier(s) to be placed in Consensus name (“Ported DIDs”-Direct Inward Dial). Consensus charges for these Ported DIDs depend on their location and quantity.
For United States locations, ports are priced based on the quantity of numbers being billed. For blocks of at least 100 DIDs, where an entire range from XX00 to XX99 are being ported (“block ports”), there is a one-time fee of £2.00 for each Ported DID, which will be invoiced on the monthly bill for the month in which Customer makes the request to port. In the event Customer requests that any such Ported DIDs be ported back to Customer, Customer will pay Consensus a fixed fee of £60.00 plus £2.00 per Ported DID requested to be ported back to Customer.
If you “ported in” a telephone number in connection with your use of efax or are entitled to “port out” an efax number under local law, you may “port out” that number upon termination of your efax account only if you satisfy the following requirements: (i) you provide written notice to Consensus of your intention to “port out” the telephone number associated with the terminated efax account no later than thirty (30) days after the date of termination of your efax account (the “porting notice period”); (ii) your new telephone carrier provides our telephone carrier with a duly executed porting request prior to the expiration of the porting notice period; and (iii) prior to the expiration of the porting notice period, Consensus has received an administration fee to cover its costs associated with processing the port in an amount of (a) £25 (or the equivalent in local currency) if you “ported in” the telephone number or (b) £65 if you are entitled to “port out” an efax number under local law. You hereby authorize Consensus to charge your credit card in the applicable amount or to otherwise arrange to make this payment to Consensus within the porting notice period. If you fail to satisfy these requirements, the telephone number you “ported in” will become the sole and exclusive property of Consensus.
For United States locations that are not block ports, there is a one-time fee of £10.00 for each Ported DID, which will be invoiced on the monthly bill for the month in which Customer makes the request to port. In the event Customer requests that any such Ported DIDs be ported back to Customer , Customer will pay Consensus a fixed fee of £60.00, plus £10.00 per Ported DID requested to be ported back to Customer.
Customer shall not delete from their account Ported DIDs during the Term of the Agreement.
Upon termination of this Agreement (other than termination due to a Default by Customer ), Consensus agrees, following receipt of a written request from Customer send to [email protected] and received within 60 days of the termination date, to use commercially reasonable efforts to transfer back the Ported DIDs to a telecommunications provider designated by Customer. In the event Customer fails to request to port any Ported DIDs back to Customer within thirty (30) days of the termination of this Agreement, Customer shall no longer have a right to have any Ported DIDs ported back to it.
CUSTOMER ALSO UNDERSTANDS AND AGREES THAT CUSTOMER WILL HAVE USE OF THE TELEPHONE NUMBER(S)(DIDs) THAT ARE PROVIDED AS PART OF THE SERVICES ONLY UNTIL THE END OF THE TERM OF THEIR AGREEMENT WITH CONSENSUS OR UNTIL CONSENSUS NO LONGER PROVIDES THEM WITH SERVICES, EXCEPT IF THEY SATISFY THE REQUIREMENTS FOR PORTED DIDS SET FORTH ABOVE. CONSENSUS IS GRANTING CUSTOMER THE REVOCABLE PERMISSION TO USE SUCH DID(S) IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS AGREEMENT FOR THE LENGTH OF THE TERM OF THE AGREEMENT. CUSTOMER UNDERSTANDS AND AGREES THAT CONSENSUS IS THE CUSTOMER OF RECORD OF ALL DID(S) PROVIDED AS PART OF THE SERVICES AND, THEREFORE, CONSENSUS HAS CERTAIN RIGHTS WITH RESPECT TO THE DID(S), INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION CERTAIN RIGHTS RELATING TO PORTING OF THE NUMBER(S) ("PORTING" IS CAUSING OR ATTEMPTING TO CAUSE NUMBER(S) TO BE TRANSFERRED, SWITCHED, OR OTHERWISE MOVED TO ANY OTHER SERVICE PROVIDER, TELEPHONE CARRIER OR ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY). AS THE CUSTOMER OF RECORD FOR THE TELEPHONE NUMBER(S), CONSENSUS HAS A DIRECT RELATIONSHIP WITH THE TELEPHONE COMPANY THAT PROVIDES THE UNDERLYING TELECOMMUNICATIONS THAT SUPPORT THE SERVICES YOU RECEIVE FROM CONSENSUS. CUSTOMER UNDERSTANDS AND AGREES THAT CONSENSUS IS NOT, ITSELF, A TELEPHONE COMPANY AND THEREFORE CONSENSUS IS NOT UNDER ANY LEGAL OBLIGATION TO PERMIT CUSTOMER TO PORT ANY TELEPHONE NUMBER(S) PROVIDED AS PART OF THE SERVICE UNLESS CUSTOMER SATISFIES THE REQUIREMENTS SET FORTH ABOVE IN RELATION TO PORTING. CUSTOMER UNDERSTANDS AND AGREES THAT CUSTOMER IS EXPRESSLY PROHIBITED FROM CAUSING OR ATTEMPTING TO CAUSE SUCH DID(S) TO BE TRANSFERRED TO ANY OTHER SERVICE PROVIDER, TELEPHONE CARRIER OR ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY UNLESS THEY ARE PORTED DIDS AND CUSTOMER SATISFIES THE REQUIREMENTS SET FORTH ABOVE. IN THE EVENT CUSTOMER VIOLATES THE FOREGOING PROVISION, CUSTOMER AGREES TO IMMEDIATELY RETURN THE DID(S) TO CONSENSUS AND PAY CONSENSUS AN AMOUNT EQUAL TO £300 OR THE EQUIVALENT IN LOCAL CURRENCY). CUSTOMER AUTHORIZES CONSENSUS TO CHARGE THE CREDIT CARD ON FILE FOR CUSTOMER’S ACCOUNT OR TAKE ANY OTHER MEASURES REQUIRED TO COLLECT THIS PAYMENT AND TO CAUSE THE DID(S) TO BE SO RETURNED. CUSTOMER AGREES THAT THIS PAYMENT REPRESENTS LIQUIDATED DAMAGES REFLECTING A REASONABLE MEASURE OF THE ACTUAL OR ANTICIPATED HARM, DAMAGES CAUSED, AND ADMINISTRATIVE FEES INCURRED BY CONSENSUS FROM SUCH VIOLATION IN LIGHT OF THE DIFFICULTIES OF PROOF OF CONSENSUS LOSS AND THAT THIS PAYMENT IS NOT A PENALTY. SOME NON-US JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS TO BE PLACED ON CUSTOMER’S RIGHT TO PORT THE DID ASSIGNED TO YOU, SO SOME OF THESE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY IF CUSTOMER OR THE DID(S) ASSIGNED TO CUSTOMER ARE LOCATED IN SUCH A JURISDICTION.
CUSTOMER UNDERSTANDS AND AGREES THAT FOLLOWING THE TERMINATION OF SERVICE FOR ANY REASON, THE DIDs PROVIDED BY CONSENSUS AS PART OF THE SERVICES AND ANY PORTED DIDS WHICH CUSTOMER FAILS TO REQUEST TO PORT AS SET FORTH ABOVE MAY BE RE-ASSIGNED IMMEDIATELY TO ANOTHER CUSTOMER, AND CUSTOMER AGREES THAT CONSENSUS WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO DIRECT, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL OR SPECIAL DAMAGES) ARISING OUT OF ANY SUCH RE-ASSIGNMENT, AND CUSTOMER HEREBY WAIVES ANY CLAIMS WITH RESPECT TO ANY SUCH RE-ASSIGNMENT, WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACTUAL, TORT OR OTHER GROUNDS, EVEN IF CONSENSUS HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF DAMAGES.2.2 PAYMENT FOR CORPORATE SERVICE

The Administrator has the ability to set the retention period for stored faxes, measured from the date of receipt of such fax. You may access these faxes through the online eFax Message Center. You acknowledge that Consensus may change its practices and limitations concerning storage of fax messages, including without limitation, the maximum number of days that fax messages will be retained, the maximum number of messages stored at any one time, and the maximum storage space that will be allotted on Consensus servers on your behalf, at any time, as provided for in Section 5.

LARGE FILE SHARING
If Customer has elected to have storage for its eFax Corporate account, the Administrator can activate a feature that enables End Users to provide third parties access over the Internet to files (“Large File Sharing”). Large File Sharing is available through the eFax Corporate™ website upon login. Files can be uploaded, recipient email addresses added and upon submission recipients receive an email with a link to access the transmitted files.
If activated by the Administrator, End Users may upload a maximum of one cumulative gigabyte per each Large File Sharing submission (in a single file, or a combination of multiple files). End Users may designate up to twenty (20) recipients per submission. After submission, the system will email the End User’s recipients a link to the uploaded files. The End User who submitted the Large File Submission may only access the uploaded files if he or she designated him or herself as a recipient. Each recipient may download the transmitted file(s) a maximum of five (5) times over a period of thirty (30) days from the original submission.
Customer acknowledges and agrees that Large File Sharing is provided as a convenience only. Furthermore, Customer acknowledges that links to files uploaded through Large File Sharing are public and non-secure, in that such links may be forwarded freely to any third party by the designated recipients, or forwarded by other third parties whom the sending End User did not designate. For that reason, Consensus assumes no responsibility for the security, confidentiality or privacy of files uploaded via this feature.
By using this feature, Customer acknowledges and agrees: (i) to assume sole responsibility for the content of any files uploaded, hosted and/or transmitted by any End User; and (ii) to assume any liability arising from any End User’s transmission of, and/or any third party’s receipt of, any End User’s uploaded files, even if the sending End User did not designate such third party as a recipient in the original Large File Sharing submission.
Consensus further disclaims any liability or responsibility for any failure or malfunction of this feature, whether or not such failure prevents Customer or and End User from utilizing the feature, including but not limited to: an error in the Large File Sharing submission process; deletion of or failure to store any uploaded files; non-receipt of requested notification emails; broken or non-functional links to files that an End User may have uploaded; or rejection of an end User’s files for any reason, including due to a virus in one of the End User’s files.
Consensus may discontinue or change the terms under which this feature is provided to Customer at any time, including, without limitation, changes in the maximum number of days that uploaded files are retained, the maximum cumulative upload size of each submission, the maximum number of uploaded files stored at any one time and/or the maximum storage space that will be allotted on Consensus servers to store the uploaded files.
In the event that Consensus, in its sole discretion, determines or suspects that any uploaded file(s) constitute(s), or may give rise to, a violation of any law or regulation or this Customer Agreement, or Customer or any End User is otherwise in breach of any provision of this Customer Agreement, Consensus reserves the right to remove Customer’s, or any End User’s, stored file(s) and/or to deactivate links to stored file(s) without further notice to Customer.10.

CUSTOMER CONDUCT
Customer solely is responsible for the contents of its transmissions through the Service, and Consensus simply acts as a passive conduit for Customer to send and receive information of Customer's own choosing. However, Consensus reserves the right to take any action with respect to the Service that Consensus deems necessary or appropriate in Consensus sole discretion if Consensus believes Customer or Customer's information may create liability for Consensus, compromise or disrupt the Service for Customer or other Consensus subscribers, or may cause Consensus to lose (in whole or in part) the services of Consensus ISPs or other suppliers. Customer's use of the Service is subject to all applicable local, state, national and international laws and regulations (including without limitation those governing account collection, export control, consumer protection, unfair competition, anti- discrimination or false advertising).

Customer further agrees not to transmit any material that encourages conduct that could constitute a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability or otherwise violate any applicable local, state, national or international law or regulation. The Service makes use of the Internet for Customer to send and receive information of Customer's own choosing; therefore, Customer's conduct is subject to Internet regulations, policies and procedures. Customer will not use or reference the Service for chain letters, junk fax or junk mail, spamming or any use of distribution lists to any person who has not given specific permission to be included in such a process, and will not attempt to gain unauthorized access to other computer systems. Customer shall not interfere with another Customer's use and enjoyment of the Service or another entity's use and enjoyment of similar services.15. JUNK FAX/SPAM DROP-BOX POLICY
The transmission of unsolicited commercial "junk faxes" is illegal in the United States under the Federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 (http://www.fcc.gov/guides/fax- advertising) and in the European Union under Directive 2002/58/EC and Directive 2009/136/EC, and is also illegal under the law of a number of other countries r states and provinces. Consensus distribution of advertising to its customers is not considered unsolicited fax advertising based upon Member’s acceptance of this Agreement.
Consensus understands that receipt of such faxes can impair your use of our Services. Accordingly, Consensus intends to use legally available means to prevent distribution and receipt of such junk faxes to our Members. If Member believes he or she has received a junk fax, we ask that the Member take the following two steps:3
(1) If the junk fax contains a telephone number, fax number, or other contact information to "unsubscribe" from receipt of additional junk faxes, please do so; and
(2) Please go to the following web page to file a complaint with Consensus by inserting the required information and including a copy of the offending fax: http://www.j2corporate.com/corp/twa/page/corporateAbuseForm.
Member hereby acknowledges and agrees that Consensus, as owner of all fax numbers issued through the Service, has any and all rights to assert any and all legal claims available against any third party as a result of Member's receipt of any unsolicited faxes, including but not limited to claims under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991, and to the extent Member does have any rights to bring any such claims, Member hereby assigns any and all such rights to Consensus.
Because Consensus numbers may be reassigned to other customers in the event Member's account is canceled, and to ensure the best possible service for all customers, Member is not permitted to "opt in" to receive spam faxes on Member's Consensus number.
Consensus does not permit its customers to use their Consensus number as a "drop-box" for responses to email spam offers. If Member believes he or she has received email spam that uses an Consensus number as a fax drop-box for responses, we ask that the Member take the following two steps:
(1) If the email contains an email address, telephone number, fax number, or other contact information to "unsubscribe" from receipt of additional emails, please do so.
(2) If Customer is unable to successfully "unsubscribe," please forward the offending email to [email protected] We will investigate Customer's complaint and determine if the fax number referenced in the spam email is owned by Consensus. If it is, we will attempt to contact the customer and, if necessary and appropriate, terminate their Consensus Service.16. INDEMNIFICATION
Customer agrees to indemnify and hold Consensus, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers and employees, harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys' fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of Customer's use of the Service, the violation of this CUSTOMER AGREEMENT by Customer, or the infringement by Customer, or other user of the Service using Customer's computer, of any intellectual property or other right of any person or entity.17. TERM AND TERMINATION
This CUSTOMER AGREEMENT shall commence on the date it is entered into by Customer and shall continue in full force and effect for a period of one (1) month, and thereafter this CUSTOMER AGREEMENT shall automatically renew on a monthly basis. At any time, either party may terminate this CUSTOMER AGREEMENT without cause upon prior written notice. In addition, this CUSTOMER AGREEMENT may be terminated at any time by either party upon written notice if the other party (a) ceases to function as a going concern or to conduct operations in the normal course of business, or (b) has a petition filed by or against it under any state or federal bankruptcy or insolvency laws (or their foreign equivalents) which petition has not been dismissed or set aside within sixty (60) days of filing. Consensus shall not be liable to Customer or any third party for termination of this CUSTOMER AGREEMENT or the Service. Upon termination of the Service or this CUSTOMER AGREEMENT, Customer's right to use the Service immediately ceases. Customer shall have no right and Consensus will have no obligation thereafter to forward any unread or unsent messages to Customer or any third party.
