6. SERVICE MONITORING AND WARRANTIES
Inphonite monitors the InphoniteVoice servers regularly. InphoniteVoice is a highly reliable service provider with very little downtime. Inphonite installs updates during off-peak weekend hours, generally with no more than a couple of hours downtime for these updates. However, due to the nature of computers, mobile phones, the Internet, and land or VoIP phone lines, it is possible that we may experience some other outages and will not be able to provide our services on any given day or time. The Service is further supplied on an “as is” basis without warranty of any kind. Inphonite disclaims all warranties, both express and implied, including but not limited to any implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose and any warranties of non-infringement.
If for any reason we do experience an outage of our services, message credits for paid users will be refunded to your account. There will be no compensation to Trial Offer Service users whatsoever.
We reserve the right to change, limit, or eliminate IV-SaaS at any time without advance notice. If such a change is made to InphoniteVoice, we will do our best to notify our users via e-mail.
The Customer is solely responsible for ensuring that all information, including contact information, in the Customer’s database is accurate. Therefore, please be certain the contact information in your database is accurate and up to date. We do not provide refunds for messages that were setup with improper contact information, including and not limited to area codes, phone numbers, email addresses, dates, times, or using the improper time zone, location, provider, or message preference. Please double check your calls/texts and understand that if you are sending out a call/text from a specified time zone, the call/text will be sent out at that time to ALL your callers and is not adjusted for each phone number's local time zone unless set up with separate location settings. Additionally, if using the mobile application of InphoniteVoice, Inphonite will not reimburse or refund any credits for any messages that were “butt-dialed” or accidentally selected to be sent.
