Please read the following Everywhere Wireless (“EW” or “we” or “us”) customer agreement (this “Agreement”) carefully before signing up for an EW account or using any EW services. This Agreement is a legally binding agreement between you (an entity or person) and Everywhere Wireless, LLC. By proceeding to establish an account and/or use the EW services, you agree to be bound to the terms and conditions stated below. If you do not agree to all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, you must not sign up for an account or use the service, even if the service is paid by your property.
For users registering with EW for their own personal use, nothing in this Agreement affects your statutory rights. You should print and keep a copy of this Agreement for your future reference.
1. Supplier. Unless specified otherwise, the Services will be supplied by Everywhere Wireless, LLC, an Illinois limited liability company whose main business address is at Everywhere Wireless, LLC, 420 N. May Street, Chicago, IL 60642, and various third parties contracted by EW to provide certain of the Services.
2. Payment Obligations. Unless the Services provided by EW are paid for by your condominium association, apartment building or the owner of the property in which you rent (the “Exception”), you must (i) provide EW with accurate and complete billing information including legal name, address, telephone number, and credit or debit card/billing information, and (ii) report to EW all changes to this information within 30 days of the change. You are responsible for any charges to your account. If you have questions regarding charges to an account, you should contact EW’s Customer Service Department at 312.361.0052 or by email at support@EverywhereWireless.com. Charges are billed to your credit or debit cards for usage of the Services. You hereby authorize EW to charge any credit card you may have on file with us for the full amount of the charges owing by you from time to time. EW is not responsible for any charges or expenses (e.g., for overdrawn accounts, exceeding credit card limits, etc.) resulting from charges billed by EW. All charges are considered valid immediately upon billing of such charges. No refunds will be provided under any circumstance. All Services are paid for and utilized on a month by month basis and therefore can be cancelled at any time by you. Given these conditions, under no circumstance will a credit, refund or adjustment be provided to you by EW. You agree not to withhold from or offset against any amount owing to us for any reason. You also agree to address any and all claims solely with us and not to initiate, under any set of circumstances, charge refusals or charge-backs with credit card issuers, and you agree to indemnify us for any expenses or damages we may suffer on account the initiation by you of any such charge refusal or charge-back. Unless the Exception is applicable, if payment cannot be charged to your credit or debit card or your charge is returned to EW for any reason, EW reserves the right to pursue any and all legal remedies to collect the amount owed by you, to suspend or terminate your access to the Services and your account, and to terminate all obligations of EW under this Agreement.You agree to pay, in connection with any past due balance, (i) a late payment charge of 1½ percent per month, but not in excess of the lawful maximum, and (ii) all costs incurred by us in collecting such past due balance, including, without limitation, court and arbitration costs and attorney’s fees. Any free trial period of your membership lasts for one month, or as otherwise specified during sign-up. Free trials may not be combined with any other offers. You must have a current valid accepted payment method as indicated during sign-up (the “Payment Method”), to use the Services.We will begin billing the Payment Method for your monthly membership fees at the end of the free trial period of your membership unless you cancel prior to the end of the free trial period. To view the specific details of your membership, including monthly membership price and end date of your free trial period, refer to the email sent to you from EW outlining the service agreement. Your Payment Method will be authorized for up to approximately one month of service as soon as you register. In some instances, your available balance or credit limit may be reduced to reflect the authorization; however, no charges will be made against the Payment Method unless you do not cancel prior to the end of your free trial period. You will not receive a notice from us that your free trial period has ended or that the paying portion of your membership has begun.We will continue to bill your Payment Method on a monthly basis for your membership fee until you cancel. You may cancel your membership at any time; however, there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods. At specific locations, we may provide a router or modem to you. In this case, if you do not return this router or modem to us within thirty (30) days of your services terminating, then you will be billed $149 and you agree to pay such amount immediately. Also, in the event we have provided a router or modem, if you do not pay for a minimum of eight (8) months of services, you will be charged an early termination fee of $99.We may offer a number of membership plans, including special promotional plans or memberships with different limitations. We reserve the right to modify, terminate or otherwise amend our offered membership plans.
3. Subscription and Governing Law. Our invitation to you to order a subscription to the Services is not an “offer” by us to sell you a subscription at the prices on the Website or advertised elsewhere. Instead, when you complete any registration form, you make an offer to us to buy a subscription, which we can accept or reject. The order is finalized (and a legal contract is created between us) when we send you a confirmatory email accepting your order and/or you are granted access to the Services. If there is a mistake in the subscription pricing on the Website then, when we receive your order we will email you and set out the correct price and give you the opportunity to request a subscription at that price or you may decide not to subscribe.For the avoidance of doubt, any contract for the provision of the Services will be deemed to have been executed and performed in the State of Illinois, United States of America. Further, any such contract will be interpreted, construed and enforced in all respects in accordance with the laws of the State of Illinois, United States of America, without giving effect to conflict of laws provisions thereof.
4. Username And Password. With some of EW services, upon registration, you will receive a username and password. You will use the password only for access to the Services and not for any other purpose. You are the only authorized user of your EW account, unless expressly specified otherwise in your service plan, and your use of your account must comply with this Agreement. Any breach of this Agreement and any use of the Services by anyone to whom you disclose your username and/or password will be treated as if the breach or use had been carried out by you, and will not relieve you of your obligations under this Agreement. Any such use will be paid for by you as set out in this Agreement.You must keep your password confidential at all times so that no one else may access the Services through your account. You are responsible for notifying EW immediately upon discovering any unauthorized use of your account or error in the operation of a password. You agree not to use any automatic method to avoid disconnection due to inactivity; you may not maintain a connection unless actively using it.Usernames and passwords are EW’s property and EW reserves the right to alter or replace them at any time, in its sole discretion.You shall cease to use and delete the password from any of your records upon expiry or termination of your registration for whatever reason.
5. Length of Agreement. Once your order is finalized, you cannot cancel it unless the Services are not in accordance with this Agreement and that entitles you under normal legal rules to terminate your order. Notwithstanding the above, your order is on a period by period basis and therefore you can simply not renew for another period if you are unsatisfied with the Services. The Services are recurring and renew automatically. The Services are not pro-rated and will cease at the end of the month for which you have paid. To cancel or terminate any of the Services, you will need to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name, full address, your requested date of cancellation and the service that you are currently subscribed to, at which point we will process your account for cancellation.
6. Monitoring. EW has no obligation to monitor the Services, but may do so and disclose information regarding use of the Services for any reason if EW, in its sole discretion, believes that it is reasonable to do so, including, but not limited to satisfying laws, regulations, or governmental or legal requests, operating the Services properly, or protecting itself and its customers.
7. Our Commitment. We will use reasonable efforts to provide access to the Services for which you have paid. However, if the Services include any wireless transmission, EW will use its best efforts to provide useful and reliable wireless Internet service (“Wi-Fi”) meeting or exceeding industry standards for wireless speed and downtime. However, you acknowledge that Wi-Fi utilizes public, unlicensed radio frequency spectrum and that it is therefore subject to external interferences, environmental influences, and other factors and variables beyond EW’s reasonable control. Actual performance in any particular office, home, apartment or other space may vary, and may be affected by the following: (A) individual and cumulative upload and download data amounts; (B) general bandwidth congestion; (C) performance, configuration, and functionality of the resident’s Wi-Fi devices and wireless cards (including, but not limited to memory, storage and other limitations); (D) obstructions and distances between a your Wi-Fi device and EW’s access points; (E) non-EW Wi-Fi routers; (F) transmission and equipment limitations, failures, maintenance or repair; and (G) error by you. Wi-Fi connection may also be interrupted or limited for such reasons. EW is not responsible for data lost or misdirected due to these and other foreseeable and unforeseeable factors. All speeds advertised are purely estimates and is not an indication of the speed at which your Wi-Fi device or the Network will operate. The actual speed of the Network and other performance will vary.We do not operate any wireless or other networks ourselves; instead we obtain access for you to the networks of a number of network operators.
