CENTURYLINK PRISM TV SERVICES SUBSCRIBER AGREEMENT - UPDATED
This CenturyLink Prism TV Services subscriber agreement, together with the exhibits and materials referenced herein ("Agreement") is between CenturyTel Broadband Services, LLC (or other, applicable CenturyLink operating company providing the Services at your location) ("CenturyLink") and the end user of the CenturyLink service(s) described below ("you" or "Customer"). For customer convenience, this Agreement combines obligations of multiple CenturyLink entities, but does not create joint liability between the CenturyLink entities. The particular CenturyLink entity providing you Service, Equipment and/or Software and the provision and receipt of such is subject to all provisions of the Agreement, unless otherwise specified herein. Please review the Agreement carefully, as it governs your use of digital television services, marketed as "Prism TV" and any other CenturyLink services provided now or in the future via a digital television platform (collectively, "Services"). This Agreement will remain in full force and effect until terminated as provided for below. For purposes of this Agreement, the terms "we" or "us" or "our" refer to CenturyLink. For purposes of this Agreement, the terms "you" or "your" or "Subscriber" or "Customer" refer to you, the Services subscriber, including all other members and/or guests of the Subscriber Location where CenturyLink provides Services and Equipment.
THIS AGREEMENT DESCRIBES THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS UNDER WHICH WE WILL PROVIDE SERVICES AND EQUIPMENT TO BOTH RESIDENTIAL AND BUSINESS SUBSCRIBERS. Unless a section is specifically noted as applying only to residential or business subscribers, respectively, the terms and conditions of this Agreement apply to both residential and business subscribers. You should carefully read this Agreement, including the required use of arbitration on an individual basis to resolve disputes, rather than jury trials or class actions, and the limitations on the remedies available to you in the event of a dispute, as fully described in the "DISPUTE RESOLUTION" section of this Agreement.
You must accept this Agreement as a condition of receiving Services and Equipment. If you are a residential subscriber, you must be at least 18 years of age to accept this Agreement, and by accepting this Agreement, you confirm you are an adult of at least 18 years of age. If you are a business subscriber, by accepting this Agreement, you confirm (through your duly authorized representative) that you are a corporation, partnership, or other legal entity duly formed and in good standing where required to do business with all legal authority and power to accept this Agreement; and you are also confirming that this Agreement constitutes a valid and binding obligation of yours. All use of the Services and Equipment, whether or not authorized by you, shall be deemed your use. You are responsible for ensuring that all use of the Services and Equipment complies with this Agreement.
If you are a new Services subscriber, your enrollment in, activation of, or paying for Services constitutes your acceptance of this Agreement, even if you choose not to read it, and its terms and conditions will be legally binding upon you. If you do not accept this Agreement, do not use the Services and notify CenturyLink immediately to cancel the Services.
- Optional Value-Added Services. CenturyLink may make available for purchase or use at no charge optional value-added or associated services that complement, enhance your use or enjoyment of Services, or are available with Services (e.g., Prism TV app) (collectively, "Associated Services"). Associated Services may be made available or removed by CenturyLink at any time with or without notice to you. If CenturyLink removes an Associated Service for which there is a charge to you, CenturyLink will cease charging you for such Associated Service in a manner consistent with the terms of this Agreement. For purposes of this Agreement and except to the extent otherwise specified here or under any specific terms and conditions for an individual Associated Service, all Associated Services are considered to be a subset of Services and included in such definition.
- Viewing Limitations. Services are provided to you for your home or business location, depending on your type of Services subscription (each, a "Subscription Location"). You agree that the Services provided will not be viewed in a manner inconsistent with your type of Services subscription and you will not permit Services to be viewed in an area other than the Subscription Location (e.g., a residential subscriber will not permit the Services to be publicly viewed outside his/her residence); provided, however, CenturyLink may make available an Associated Service allowing you to view Services through an online or mobile application on CenturyLink-approved devices and equipment, at no charge or for additional monthly and/or one-time charges. The Services may not be rebroadcast, transmitted, recorded in an unauthorized manner, or performed, nor may admission be charged for listening to or viewing any Services provided by us. If we later determine that you utilized your Equipment (as defined in the "EQUIPMENT" section of this Agreement), or sold, leased or otherwise gave possession or use of the same to a third party whom you knew or reasonably should have known intended to use such Equipment to permit the viewing of the Services in a manner inconsistent with your type of Services subscription (for example, Equipment assigned to a residential subscription being used to support a commercial establishment or any other area open to the public), we may terminate the Services and in addition to all other applicable fees, you agree to pay us the difference between the price actually paid for the Services and the full rate and charges associated with the type of Services subscription you were enabling. The payment of that amount and/or the termination of Services will not prejudice our ability to exercise any other rights and remedies we may have under this Agreement, at law, in equity, or otherwise. Services are provided in standard definition, but you may choose to add high definition Services to your account for an additional monthly charge. High definition availability and the maximum number of high definition video streams available to a Subscriber depends on the actual location of the Subscription Location and does not depend on the number of set-top box receivers at the Subscription Location. Certain Services transmitted by us, including but not limited to some subscription Services, sporting events and broadcast network Services, may be blacked out in your area of reception. If you circumvent or attempt to circumvent any of these blackouts, you may be subject to legal action. In our sole discretion and without liability to you, we may place restrictions on the use of your Services, and immediately disrupt, suspend, or terminate your Services without notice for violations, suspected violations, or to prevent violations of this Agreement.
Prism Purchased Through CenturyLink ON Portal. Some customers are able to purchase Services through the CenturyLink ON portal ("Portal Customers"). Except as otherwise provided below in this Section 1(D), the remaining provisions of this Agreement apply to Portal Customers. The following provisions apply only to Portal Customers:
- Portal Customers will have to self-install their Equipment. No technician will be coming to your Subscription Location to install it for you. Your Equipment should arrive within one or two business days after your order is final. We will send you instructions on how to install the Equipment, and you may call 1-866-314-4148 or chat with us at http://www.centurylink.com/help/chat/?ent=c&team1=prism if you need assistance during the self-install process.
- Portal customers will have to set up automatic, monthly recurring payments for their Services on a credit card. Monthly recurring charges will be billed to your credit card on file in advance. If you purchase any Video on Demand or Pay Per View content, those purchases will be billed to your credit card on file with us within a day or two of your order.
- Services are available without any early termination liability because there are no term commitments connected with Services purchased through the Portal.
- Monthly recurring charges may be increased by up to $10 per month every 12 months.
- You may cancel your Services at any time by following the cancellation instructions in the Portal. However, if you cancel your Services on any day other than the first day of your applicable billing cycle, your payment for that month of Services will not be prorated or refunded and your Services will terminate on that date.
- Modem; Set-Top Box Receivers; Multiple Subscription Locations. To independently tune televisions within your Subscription Location, a separate set-top box receiver (including tuner) is required for each television. The Services include a modem, which will be assessed a separate, monthly charge. You will be assessed an additional monthly charge for each set-top box in your Subscription Location. If you desire to receive Services at multiple Subscription Locations (including multiple residences within your dwelling or multiple business locations), you must open separate accounts for each Subscription Location. You agree that you will not directly or indirectly use a single account for the purpose of authorizing Services for multiple set-top box receivers that are not all located at the same Subscription Location. If we later determine that you have violated the terms of this section, we may terminate your Services and, in addition to all other applicable fees, you agree to pay us the difference between the amounts actually received by us and the full retail price for the Services authorized for each set-top box receiver on the account, whether owned by you or not. The payment of that amount and/or the termination of Services will not prejudice our ability to exercise any other rights and remedies we may have under this Agreement, at law, in equity, or otherwise.
- Permission to Install Services and Equipment; Access; Site Preparation; Repair. You represent and warrant that you have all rights necessary to authorize our installation and support of the Services and Equipment, including all necessary approvals to install, provide, repair, and/or maintain the Services and Equipment from any landlord or property owner other than you. When repairs or maintenance are needed, you agree to contact us for any technical and other Service support issues through the toll free numbers CenturyLink provides to you. In all instances, you will provide access to us or facilitate access for us upon our request during all hours consistent with the requirements of installation, repair, maintenance, and provision of Services, and you further grant to us and our subcontractors the limited right to come onto the property where the Subscription Location resides in your absence and without your prior consent in order to perform any repairs or maintenance on our facilities located outside or on the exterior of the applicable property. You will prepare the Subscriber Location to comply with Equipment manufacturers or our installation and maintenance specifications. You warrant that the Subscription Location is free of asbestos (whether encapsulated or exposed) and other hazardous materials as defined by federal or state law. If this warranty cannot be made prior to installing, repairing, or maintaining Services or Equipment, we will, in addition to any other legal or equitable remedies, (a) decline to make any Service or Equipment installations, repairs, or maintenance in areas known or suspected of containing hazardous materials; or (b) delay any Service or Equipment installation, repairs, or maintenance in areas known or suspected of containing hazardous materials until such areas or materials are resolved to our satisfaction.
- Physical Address; Moves. When setting up your Services account, you agree to provide us with the physical street address where the Equipment will be located, and the physical street address that will constitute your billing address. A post office box does not constitute a physical address and is not sufficient to meet this requirement. If you move to another location (including a move within the same building), you are not guaranteed to have Services at that new location. CenturyLink must confirm that Services are available at that location, and additional or different charges may apply for Services at that location.
- General. You will not use the Services or Equipment in any manner not permitted by this Agreement, and you will not violate any law, rule, or regulation. You will not encourage or instruct any other individual or entity to do any of the foregoing.
- Abusive Behavior; Fraud. You will not harass, threaten, or defame CenturyLink, employees of CenturyLink, or any contractor or subcontractor of CenturyLink. You will not commit any fraud or act fraudulently in any way related to Services or Equipment, or enable or assist anyone in any fraudulent activities or behavior.
- Privacy. You will neither violate the privacy rights of any person or collect or disclose any personal address, social security number, or any other personally identifiable information without the written consent of the individual to which the information relates.
- Intellectual Property. You will not infringe upon the copyrights, trademark rights, trade secret rights, or other intellectual property rights of any person or entity, including any such rights related to Services or Equipment. You will neither reproduce, publish, or disseminate the works of authorship of any other person or entity without the written permission of the copyright holder, nor reproduce, modify, adapt, prepare derivative works of, perform, display, publish, distribute, transmit, broadcast, sell, license or otherwise exploit Services or the Equipment.
- Hacking, Viruses, and Network Attacks. YYou will neither access any account without authorization, nor attempt to penetrate or disable any security system. You will not intentionally distribute a virus, launch a denial of service attack, or in any other way attempt to interfere with the functioning of any communications system or website. You will not use any automated data gathering or extraction tools, program, algorithm or methodology to access, acquire, copy or monitor the Services or Equipment. You will not attempt to access or otherwise interfere with the account of other users of Services or Equipment.
- Services and Equipment Under Special Arrangements. Some subscribers may receive Services and Equipment through special arrangements with their landlord, property owner, or property developer or manager. If you have such an arrangement, this Agreement will apply to the Services and Equipment (except that CenturyLink may not directly charge you for Services and Equipment) provided to you as part of the special arrangement, and the Equipment return provisions may not apply to you. All charges and fees for Services to which you subscribe in addition to the special arrangement will be your responsibility. You may have an additional agreement or contract with your landlord, property owner, or property developer or manager that covers any applicable special arrangement. Any such additional agreement or contract is outside this Agreement and CenturyLink has no responsibility or obligations under such agreement, nor is bound by, the terms of such agreement. If the special arrangement with your landlord, property owner, or property developer or manager terminates, you will continue receiving Services and Equipment under CenturyLink's then-current, standard billing rates and terms and this Agreement.
- Promotions. You may be eligible for certain discounts, features, promotions, and other benefits associated with your subscription to Services and Equipment, as we offer to you in marketing and informational materials (collectively, "Promotions"). All Promotions are provided to you so long as you continue to meet all qualification requirements, but each Promotion may be modified or terminated at any time as described in this Agreement or as described in the applicable Promotion materials. Unless otherwise set forth in the applicable Promotion materials, then-current, standard monthly rates, charges, and fees will be charged at the conclusion of the relevant Promotion period or when you no longer qualify for such Promotions.
- Recommendations. When we provide you with the Services, we obtain and use information about programming watched, recorded or accessed through your account. We use this data, in part, to: 1) make general recommendations to all customers (e.g., what programming is most popular among all viewers, etc.); and 2) make specific recommendations to customers based on their individual viewing habits. You can opt out of receiving the specific recommendations if you would like to, but you cannot opt out of receiving the general recommendations. To opt out of the collection and use of your viewing habits, follow the instructions at the Guidance Center.
- Changes in Services, Equipment, or this Agreement. We reserve the right to change the terms of this Agreement, the Services, Equipment, and our prices or fees related to the Services and Equipment at any time. If the change is material, we will provide you written notice of the change and its effective date. The notice may be provided on your billing statement or by other, reasonable method of notice at our sole discretion, which may include bill inserts, separate mailings to you, email notification, recorded announcement, or posting of changes to terms and conditions to the centurylink.com website. We will not provide notice of changes to applicable taxes or surcharges, unless required by law or regulation. We will not provide notice to you regarding price decreases or the expiration of promotional pricing, offers, and terms. Changes will become effective on the date described in any notice. In the event of a change in the contents of any programming, programming packages or other Services, you understand and agree that we have no obligation to replace or supplement the programming, programming packages or other Services previously offered that have been deleted, rearranged or otherwise changed. You further understand and agree you will not be entitled to any refund because of a change in the contents of any programming, programming packages, or other Services previously offered. Your continued use of the Services after any change constitutes your acceptance of any such changes in Services, prices, terms, or conditions, and the revised Agreement. Your sole remedy for any material changes made by us is your right to cancel the affected Service or terminate this Agreement
- Delivery and Installation. Equipment may be delivered to you only in the United States. You understand that Prism requires a technician installation (except for Portal Customers). In order for you to receive the Services, it will be necessary for us to install certain reception or Service-enabling equipment consisting primarily of a modem, one set-top box receiver per TV installed, and any accompanying software, in addition to all reception or Service-enabling equipment and software that you may add in the future (collectively, "Equipment"). Equipment may be new or fully inspected and tested. We reserve the right to require you to purchase or rent the modem from us and disallow you to use any modem not provided or approved by CenturyLink in connection with the Services. You agree to pay all monthly charges assessed in connection with Equipment you rent from us to enable the Services, and pay all one-time charges assessed in connection with Equipment you purchase from us to enable the Services. The standard installation includes an initial, minimum number of set-top boxes per Subscriber account during the initial installation meeting. Additional installation charges will be assessed for each set-top box beyond the initial, minimum number of set-top boxes installed during the initial installation meeting. Additional installation charges also will be assessed for each set top box installed during subsequent installation meetings. You will provide reasonable cooperation to enable us or our agents to install, repair, or maintain Equipment.
- Set-Top Box Receiver. Your set-top box receiver contains certain components and software which are proprietary to us or our suppliers. If you subscribe to the digital video recording ("DVR") service, CenturyLink may limit the number of set top box receivers on your Subscriber account that contains a DVR hard drive. Wireless set-top box receivers may be available in some locations, but the range of such wireless receivers is limited and coverage area may vary. CenturyLink reserves the right to limit the number of set-top box receivers that may be placed on a single account. The set-top box receiver is configured with digital rights management capability designed to prevent unauthorized duplication of copyrighted material. You agree that you will not try to tamper, modify, reverse-engineer, decompile or disassemble any software or hardware contained within your set-top box receiver, DVR hard drive, digital rights management capability, or modem. Such actions are strictly prohibited and may result in the termination of your Services and/or legal action. If a set-top box receiver is replaced for any reason, CenturyLink has no responsibility or obligation for any content, materials, or software on the replaced set-top box receiver. In such instances, any such content, materials, or software will not be saved or retained.
- Loss of Equipment. If your Equipment is stolen or otherwise removed from your Subscription Location without your authorization, you must notify CenturyLink immediately, but in any event, not more than three (3) business days after such removal to avoid liability for payment for unauthorized use of the Equipment. You may be liable for any unauthorized use that occurs after the date upon which we have received your timely notification.
Equipment.Separately purchased or leased equipment is required to use the Service. Certain Equipment is available from CenturyLink.
- Leased Equipment from CenturyLink: (i) The Equipment is CenturyLink's property and you may not assign, rent, or transfer the Equipment or your rights or duties under this Agreement to another without CenturyLink's prior written consent; (ii) you agree not to mishandle, abuse, misuse, or improperly store or operate the Equipment, including using the Equipment with equipment electrically or mechanically incompatible with, or of inferior quality to, it, and (iii) you agree if the Equipment is damaged by you and/or non-operational or malfunctioning for reasons other than a manufacturing defect at anytime during the term of this Agreement or upon termination of this Agreement, CenturyLink may charge you for its full retail cost, not to exceed $200 (the "Equipment Charge"). CenturyLink does not refund or credit leases, so please call CenturyLink immediately if your leased Equipment is not working properly for replacement Equipment. If you are leasing Equipment and wish to instead purchase Equipment from CenturyLink, you are required to return your leased Equipment according to the Equipment Return provision below, and then the terms and conditions specific to purchased equipment will apply going forward. Lease payments are due for every month you lease the Equipment and lease payments do not count towards a purchase of the Equipment. Our ownership of Equipment may be displayed by notice contained on the Equipment. You will have no right to pledge, sell, mortgage, give away or remove, relocate, alter or tamper with the Equipment (or any notice of our ownership thereon) at any time. Any work related to Equipment that we perform, including reinstallation, return of, or change in location of the Equipment, will be at the service rates in effect at the time of service. You will not attach any electrical or other devices to or otherwise alter the Equipment without our prior consent. We have the right to make such filings as are necessary to evidence our ownership rights in the Equipment, and you agree to execute any and all documents as are necessary for us to make such filings.

Use of Services, including Associated Services, and Equipment may require or enable you to download, install, or use certain software that is owned by CenturyLink or third parties. By downloading, installing or using such software, you are agreeing to abide by the applicable terms of this Agreement. To utilize any licensed software associated with the Services or Equipment provided by our software vendors or licensors, you must agree to applicable software end user license agreements governing such software. If you decline, you will not be able to use the Services or Equipment. All such software end user license agreements are solely between you and our software vendors/licensors. We have no obligations or responsibility for such software. Your sole rights and obligations related to such software, in any way, are governed by the terms of your software license agreements with our vendors and licensors.

In addition, you agree that you will not de-compile, disassemble, reverse engineer or otherwise reduce the software to a human readable form.

You acknowledge that CenturyLink or its software vendors and licensors of the software, as applicable, own all right title and interest, including without limitation all copyright, patent, trademark, and trade secret rights in the software and related documentation, updates, and upgrades. You are not granted any ownership rights in the software and may not sublicense, loan, rent, lease, distribute, share, or otherwise transfer the software to anyone else.
- License Termination. Your license to use software will remain in effect until terminated by CenturyLink or its software vendors and licensors, or until Services are terminated. If you subscribe to or otherwise use any third party services offered by CenturyLink in connection with the Services or Equipment, your use of such services is subject to the end user license agreement of that third party provider. Violation of those terms may, in our sole discretion, result in the termination of Services.
- Electrical Wiring. You acknowledge that CenturyLink may use existing wiring or alter existing wiring at the Subscription Location. You warrant that you own such existing wiring or have approvals from any landlord or property owner other than you to permit CenturyLink to use such existing wiring. You are responsible, at your expense, for all ground wire connections at the Subscription Location. You will also ensure availability of a separate electric source, circuits and power with suitable outlets at the Subscription Location. You will pay the cost of electricians or conduit, if required.

- Non-CenturyLink Equipment. You are solely responsible for the compatibility and non-infringing use of any equipment other than Equipment that you add to, or otherwise used in conjunction with Equipment. Your use or combination of non-compatible or infringing equipment will, at our option, void any remaining warranty on Equipment or any Services that are adversely affected.

If we do that, we have no further obligations to you. You may not assign or transfer your Services or Equipment without our written consent.
- B. Vacation Service We offer a vacation option for Services. You must contact CenturyLink customer service and request to activate this option. We will keep the vacation option on your account until you notify us, up to a maximum of 6 months from the date that we activate the vacation option. Under the vacation option, no Service will be available and you will not attempt to use Services in any way. But all Services will remain on your account and we will invoice you for the current monthly recurring charge for Services under the vacation option. We will not invoice you for Service features during the vacation period, but all applicable taxes, fees, and surcharges will continue to be assessed while you are on the vacation option.
BILLING AND PAYMENT
- Charges. We will bill you for Services on a monthly basis based on current prices and charges provided to you or posted to http://www.centurylink.com, and listed in any written information that we provide to you. In the event of conflict among these prices and charges, the most-current prices and charges govern. You agree to pay these charges and also, if applicable, any activation fees, installation charges (including charges related to unique installation requirements at your Subscription Location), Equipment charges, repair charges, replacements charges, connection charges, usage charges, monthly fees, monthly minimums, any other fees, surcharges, assessments, taxes, and federal, state, and local government or quasi-government imposed or permitted charges. Surcharges and recovery fees, including the Prism Local Broadcast Surcharge and the Prism Sports Network Surcharge, are not taxes and are not required by law, but are set by CenturyLink and may change. Taxes and government fees and surcharges will be in the amounts that federal, state, and local authorities require or permit us to bill you. Please see www.centurylink.com/help for more information about taxes, fees, surcharges, and recovery fees. You agree to pay all taxes, franchise fees, surcharges, assessments, and other fees that are related to the Services or Equipment and included on your invoice or bill, unless you are exempt from these payments and provide documentary evidence of such exemption to us. Upon the cancellation or termination of Services for any reason prior to the end of a billing cycle, we will charge you the pro-rated monthly recurring charges for Services during the billing cycle (along with all applicable nonrecurring charges, taxes, franchise fees, surcharges, and other fees).
- Billing. Monthly recurring charges ("MRCs") for your Services begin accruing when the Services are available for your use. MRCs are billed in advance, while any usage charges, including video-on-demand and pay-per-view Services, generally are billed in arrears. Your first bill covers both the partial month of Service from the date your Service is activated up to the first day of your first full month of Service, and your first full month of Service. Depending on your location, discounts and promotions may not apply during the partial month of Service. However, you still will receive all applicable Service discounts and promotions for the entire promotional period. If your monthly charges net to $0, you may not be mailed a paper invoice. Invoice information will remain available in your account information located at http://www.centurylink.com or by calling us at the customer service number listed on your invoice, and an additional fee may be charged for invoice reprints.
- Payment. You must pay all charges applicable to your Services, including all applicable taxes, fees, activation fees, and surcharges, in U.S. currency. Your payment due date will be set forth on your invoice. For each month in which any portion of your Services or Equipment charges are not paid by the due date on your invoice, we may charge you a late payment fee or interest on those unpaid balances equal to the maximum amount or interest rate, respectively, allowed by law. If we use a collection agency or initiate any legal action to recover amounts due, you agree to reimburse us for all expenses we incur to recover such amount or pay all such costs and expenses associated with such collections efforts, including attorneys' fees. We may charge you an insufficient funds or returned check fee, up to the maximum rate allowed by law, if your check, bank draft, electronic funds transfer, or other order for payment is dishonored or returned for insufficient funds or any other reason. Our acceptance of late or partial payment (even those marked, "PAID IN FULL") and late payment charges will not constitute waiver of any of our rights to collect the full amount due under this Agreement.
- Disputed Charges. Except as otherwise provided by applicable law, disputes concerning any invoiced charges must be raised within 30 days of the invoice date. You accept all charges not disputed within 30 days. However, you may dispute charges resulting from your failure to return Equipment to us in the manner and according to the timelines described in the "EQUIPMENT" section of this Agreement after the 30-day period described in this section, but such dispute may only specifically relate to the charges assessed for the return of the Equipment. CenturyLink and its customers waive all rights of subrogation against each other in connection with Services. To dispute a charge on your invoice, you must follow the dispute procedures in this Agreement.
- Credit Check; Deposits; Credit Limits. Our provision of Services and Equipment to you is subject to our approval of your credit. As part of the credit approval process, CenturyLink may review your credit history on file with us and any credit reporting agency, and may require you to provide a deposit, advance payment, or other security prior to providing you with Services and Equipment. In addition, if your financial circumstance or payment history becomes reasonably unacceptable to CenturyLink after subscribing to Services, CenturyLink may require adequate assurance of future payment as a condition of continuing CenturyLink's provision of Services and Equipment. Your failure to provide adequate assurances required by CenturyLink is a material breach of the Agreement. CenturyLink may provide your payment history or other billing/charge information to any credit reporting agency or industry clearinghouse. If you fail to pay for Services or Equipment when due, we may, without providing notice to you, apply your deposit or advance payment to the amount owed. If you refuse to make a deposit or advance payment or otherwise establish acceptable credit, we reserve the right to refuse to provide you Services and Equipment, or terminate your existing Services and Equipment and assess any application termination fees. As we determine in our sole discretion and to the extent permitted by applicable law, we may set a credit limit on your account at any time. We may restrict the Services to which you have access if you exceed this credit limit. If we required a deposit from you, please be aware that our policy is to refund any deposit taken with interest, in states where applicable, after a period of up to 12 months so long as the account remains current through that entire period. However, if you pay a deposit in connection with your Services and the state in which the Services are provided does not require CenturyLink to pay interest on that deposit, CenturyLink will not pay you any such interest.
- Early Termination Fee. If you signed up for a plan that required you to agree to a term commitment for Services, you hereby agree to pay for the Service for that term ("Term Plan"). Your Term Plan begins on the installation date. At the end of any Term Plan you may be given the option to select a new Term Plan. If you do not select a new Term Plan, your Service will automatically convert to a month-to-month Services plan at a monthly fee that may be higher than your current rate. If you select a new Term Plan, the terms of that plan will apply. EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT, IF YOUR SERVICES UNDER A TERM PLAN ARE TERMINATED BY YOU OR BY US BEFORE COMPLETING THAT TERM PLAN, THEN YOU AGREE TO PAY CENTURYLINK THE FOLLOWING EARLY TERMINATION FEE: either (a) an amount equal to $10 or $20, depending on the promotional offer or equipment involved, multiplied by the number of months remaining in the then-current term commitment, or (b) such other amount as may be identified to you in a promotional offer (each, an "Early Termination Fee"). The Early Termination Fee described in this section represents our reasonable liquidated damages and is not a penalty.
CANCELLATION OF SERVICE
- Services Provided Month-to-Month or Under a Term Plan. We provide Services and Equipment on either a month-to-month basis or under a Term Plan. For Services and Equipment offered on a month-to-month basis or under a Term Plan, this Agreement applies until either party terminates Services. If you continue to purchase Services and Equipment on a month-to-month basis after completion of the applicable Term Plan, this Agreement will continue to apply to such Services and Equipment.
- General Right to Cancel Services. We or you have the right to cancel the Services for any reason at any time by notifying the other, including by providing written notice to the other as described in the "Notice" subsection of this Agreement. But the method by which you may terminate Services depends on whether you are terminating Services only, or all or a portion of CenturyLink services (including Services). If you are terminating Services only, you must return the Equipment by following the process described in the "EQUIPMENT" section of this Agreement. You cannot terminate Services only via any other method. If you are terminating all or a portion of CenturyLink services (including Services), you may terminate either by (1) returning the Equipment to a CenturyLink retail store and requesting termination at that time, or (2) calling the provided CenturyLink-provided customer service number and terminating such services (including Services). Please note that using method (2) above to terminate services (including Services) does not change your obligation, as described in the "EQUIPMENT" section of this Agreement, to return Equipment to CenturyLink or require CenturyLink to return any Equipment deposits to you until the Equipment is returned to us. In all instances, we reserve the right to assess you the Early Termination Fee, when applicable, as described in this Agreement.
- CenturyLink's Right to Cancel Services. We have the right to terminate your Services at any time without providing notice to you if: (1) you fail to pay your bill in full when it is due; (2) we receive confirmation that you have received the Services, or any part of the Services, without paying for them; or (3) you otherwise violate the terms of this Agreement. In all instances, we reserve the right to assess you the Early Termination Fee, when applicable, as described in this Agreement.
- Payment Responsibilities after Cancellation of Service. If your Services are cancelled for any reason, you are still responsible for payment of all outstanding balances accrued, including any applicable taxes, franchise fees, other fees, and surcharges. You are also responsible for the Early Termination Fee described in "BILLING AND PAYMENT" section of this Agreement, if applicable.
- Force Majeure Events. We will not be responsible for any delay, interruption, or other failure to perform under the Agreement due to acts beyond our control ("Force Majeure Events"). Force Majeure Events include, but are not limited to: natural disasters (e.g. lightning, earthquakes, hurricanes, floods); wars, riots, terrorist activities, and civil commotions; inability to obtain parts or equipment from third party suppliers; cable cuts by third parties, a local exchange carrier's activities, and other acts of third parties; explosions and fires; embargoes, strikes, and labor disputes; and governmental decrees and any other cause beyond our reasonable control.

If the customer service department is unable to resolve a complaint you may have to your satisfaction or if CenturyLink has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after attempting to do so informally, then we each agree to resolve those disputes through binding arbitration or small claims court, instead of in courts of general jurisdiction.

YOU AND CENTURYLINK AGREE TO ARBITRATE ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, CONTROVERSIES OR DISPUTES OF ANY KIND ("CLAIMS") AGAINST EACH OTHER, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO CLAIMS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT, OR CENTURYLINK'S SERVICES, SOFTWARE, BILLINGS, ADVERTISINGS, OR EQUIPMENT. THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE IS INTENDED TO BE BROADLY INTERPRETED AND APPLIES TO, AMONG OTHERS: ALL CLAIMS REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THEY ARE BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, STATUTE, FRAUD, MISREPRESENTATION OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY; ALL CLAIMS THAT AROSE PRIOR TO YOUR RECEIPT OF SERVICES FROM CENTURYLINK (SUCH AS FROM ADVERTISINGS) OR PRIOR TO THIS AGREEMENT; ALL CLAIMS THAT ARISE AFTER THE TERMINATION OF CENTURYLINK'S SERVICES TO YOU OR AFTER THE TERMINATION OF THIS AGREEMENT; ALL CLAIMS YOU MAY BRING AGAINST CENTURYLINK'S EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, AFFILIATES OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVES; AND ALL CLAIMS THAT CENTURYLINK MAY BRING AGAINST YOU.

- Arbitration Procedure. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute ("Notice" or "Notice of Dispute"). The Notice to CenturyLink should be addressed to: 600 New Century Parkway, New Century, KS 66031, Attn: Vice President, Commercial Law ("Notice Address"). The Notice must (1) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (2) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). If CenturyLink and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received, you or CenturyLink may commence an arbitration proceeding. A single arbitrator engaged in the practice of law will conduct the arbitration. The arbitration will be filed with the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), the arbitrator will be selected according to the AAA's procedures and the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16 ("FAA"), and claims will be resolved pursuant to this Mandatory Arbitration of Disputes provision and the AAA's rules in effect when the claim is filed. Claims also may be referred to another arbitration organization if you and CenturyLink agree in writing or to an arbitrator appointed pursuant to section 5 of the FAA. The arbitration will be confidential, but you may notify any government authority of your claim. At your election, arbitration hearings will take place in the federal judicial district of your Subscription Location.
- Arbitrator's Authority. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement, and the arbitrator's authority is limited to claims between you and CenturyLink alone. The arbitrator has no authority to join or consolidate claims, or adjudicate joined or consolidated claims, unless you and CenturyLink agree in writing. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to the scope and enforceability of the Mandatory Arbitration of Disputes provision are for the court to decide. The arbitrator's decision and award is final and binding, and judgment on the award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction. The arbitrator can award the same damages and relief that a court can award, including the award of declaratory or injunctive relief; provided, however, that any declaratory or injunctive relief may only be in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim.
- Costs of Arbitration. You will be responsible for paying your share of any arbitration fees (including filing, administrative, hearing or other fees), but only up to the amount of the filing fees you would have incurred if you had brought a claim in court. We will be responsible for any additional arbitration fees. You are responsible for all additional costs that you incur in the arbitration, including, but not limited to, fees for attorneys or expert witnesses. If the arbitration proceeding is decided in CenturyLink's favor, you shall reimburse CenturyLink for the fees and costs advanced to you only up to the extent awardable in a judicial proceeding. If the arbitration proceeding is determined in your favor, you will not be required to reimburse CenturyLink for any fees and costs advanced by CenturyLink. If a party elects to appeal an award, the prevailing party in the appeal shall be entitled to recover all reasonable attorneys' fees and costs incurred in that appeal. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Mandatory Arbitration of Disputes provision, CenturyLink will pay all fees and costs that it is required by law to pay.
- Changes. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, you agree that if CenturyLink makes any future change to this Dispute Resolution provision (other than a change to the Notice Address listed above) during the period of time that you are receiving Services, you may reject any such change by sending CenturyLink written notice within 30 days of receiving notice of the change. Your rejection notice must be sent to the Arbitration Notice Address provided above. By rejecting any future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this provision. No changes, however, that are made to this provision after either party has submitted a Notice of Dispute shall be effective as to your and CenturyLink's pending dispute and/or arbitration.
- Governing Law, Enforcement, and Waivers. The Federal Arbitration Act, and not state law, applies to this Dispute Resolution provision and its provisions and, governs all questions of whether a claim is subject to arbitration. If any portion of this Dispute Resolution provision is determined to be invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of the provision remains in full force and effect. If for any reason, the above provisions on arbitration are held unenforceable or are found not to apply to a claim, you and CenturyLink waive the right to a jury trial on your respective claims, and waive any right to pursue any claims on a class or consolidated basis or in a representative capacity. If any party files a judicial or administrative action asserting a claim that is subject to arbitration and another party successfully stays such action or compels arbitration, the party filing that action must pay the other party's costs and expenses incurred in seeking such stay or compelling arbitration, including attorneys' fees.
- Notice. If we send you a notice, it will be considered given when deposited in the U.S. Mail or with overnight courier mail, addressed to you at your billing address, hand-delivered to you, or distributed via email to the then-current email address provided to us by you. Our notice to you will also be effective if provided on your billing statement or, when posted online, the actual date such notice is posted to http://www.centurylink.com.

You agree that CenturyLink may contact you via email at the email address you provide to us when you order Services or any subsequent email address you provide us. You will provide us with any changes to your email address by updating that address in the manner prescribed to you by CenturyLink.
- Account Security. You agree to keep confidential all passwords, user IDs, IP addresses, and other account identifiers and are solely responsible for any liability or damages resulting from your failure to maintain that confidentiality. You are solely and fully responsible and liable for all activities that occur under your CenturyLink account, password, user ID, or IP address. You agree to immediately notify CenturyLink if you suspect any breach of security such as loss, theft, public use (unrestricted, open, communal or shared use by third parties unrelated and/or not affiliated with the Customer either for profit or not for profit) or unauthorized disclosure or use of your CenturyLink account, password, user ID, or any credit or charge card number provided to CenturyLink by calling the customer service number listed on your invoice. You also agree to periodically change your passwords. You authorize CenturyLink to provide information about and to make changes to your CenturyLink account, including adding new Services, upon the direction of any person able to provide information we deem sufficient to identify you. There is a risk that other users may attempt to access your Services, such as through the Internet. You acknowledge this risk as inherent to the shared nature of the Services and you agree to take full responsibility for taking adequate security precautions and safeguarding your data.
- Applicable Law. This Agreement, including all matters relating to its validity, construction, performance and enforcement, will be governed by applicable federal law, applicable rules and regulations of the Federal Communications Commission, and the laws and regulations of the state and local area where Services are provided. This Agreement is subject to amendment, modification or termination if required by such regulations or laws. If any provision in this Agreement is declared to be illegal or in conflict with any law or regulation, that provision will be deleted or modified, as applicable, without affecting the validity of the other provisions.
- Other. The terms and conditions of this Agreement, including all referenced documents and items incorporated here as posted to one of our websites, supersede all previous representations, understandings or agreements, and will supersede the terms and conditions of any order previously submitted, or prior price quoted. This Agreement contains the entire agreement between CenturyLink and you, and the written or oral statements of any salesperson, installer, customer service representative, authorized retailer, or other individual does not change the terms of this Agreement. If any term of this Agreement is held invalid, illegal or unenforceable, such term will be construed as nearly as possible to reflect the original intent of the parties and the remaining terms will remain in effect. The terms of this Agreement, which either are expressly stated to survive or by their nature would logically be expected to survive termination, will continue thereafter until fully performed. If either you or CenturyLink fails to enforce or waives any requirement under this Agreement, that does not waive that party's right to later enforce that requirement in the future.
