1. INTRODUCTION.

Centric Internet Services, LLC. (“Centric Internet Services”) provides its Internet services, (“Services”), to users who pay a monthly service fee to subscribe to the Services (“Members”) as well as to those who access some of our Services but do not have accounts (“Visitors”).

2. SUBSCRIPTION REQUIREMENTS.

Members must be at least 18 years old. Local access dial-up numbers may not be available in all areas. You are solely responsible for determining if use of a particular dial-up number will cause you to incur long-distance, toll, or other charges. Centric Internet Services is not responsible for any long-distance, toll or other telecommunications charges you incur. Current prices for Centric Internet Services's are posted throughout our website at http://www.centric.net. These rates may also be obtained by calling (888)593-2776. Centric Internet Services reserves the right to change prices and institute new fees at any time upon 30 days prior notice.

3. PAYMENT OBLIGATIONS OF A MEMBER.

Centric Internet Services's billing cycle is from the first of each month through the end of each month.  Statements are sent to owing Members by email on the first of every month.  


(a) Members must (i) provide Centric Internet Services with accurate and complete billing information including legal name, address, telephone number, and credit card/billing information, and (ii) report to Centric Internet Services all changes to this information within thirty (30) days of the change. Members are responsible for any charges to their account.
(b) Members having questions regarding charges to an account, should contact Centric Internet Services’s Customer Service Department at (888)593-2776 or billing@centric.net.

(c) Charges are billed to Members’ credit cards or debit cards, as applicable, each month for the basic service and any additional usage or services. Centric Internet Services is not responsible for any charges or expenses (e.g for overdrawn accounts, exceeding credit card limits, etc.) resulting from charges billed by Centric Internet Services.
(d) If paying by check, payments are due within 30 days after the month in which the charges are incurred.
(e) If you pay for Services through a prepayment plan, automatic billing described above shall only apply to the charges not paid for through the prepayment plan.
(f) Delinquent accounts may be suspended or canceled at Centric Internet Services’s sole discretion. Centric Internet Services may bill an additional charge to reinstate a suspended account.
(g) Centric Internet Services bills for simultaneous logins on an account. This means that multiple users dialing into the same account, at the same time will incur additional charges.  The simultaneous usage charges are in addition to any other charges in effect for your account. 

4. MEMBER'S ACCOUNT, PASSWORD, AND SECURITY. 

Upon registration, Members receive a username, password, and account designation. You and members of your household or business, if you have purchased a business account, are the only authorized users of your Centric Internet Services account and must comply with this Agreement. You must keep your password confidential so that no one else may access the Services through your account. You must notify Centric Internet Services immediately upon discovering any unauthorized use of your account.

Using a personal account for high volume or commercial use (e.g., revenue generation, advertising, etc.) is prohibited. Email accounts exceeding the Member's allotted email space may, at Centric Internet Services’s discretion, be transferred to a compressed temporary file or storage. Centric Internet Services may delete the temporary file from the server 60 days after notifying you. Any free Web site exceeding the amount of space allotted to such Member may be suspended until the Member reduces the disk space usage to the amount of space allotted or less or purchases additional megabytes. Any free Web site exceeding the traffic limits for such Member will be billed for excess traffic. You may establish a commercial or high-volume account by calling (888)593-2776.

Members agree not to use any automatic method to avoid inactivity disconnect or to otherwise maintain a connection unless actively using it. Members agree not to provide any public information services over a dial-up connection.

Centric Internet Services may change its POP numbers at any time. Centric Internet Services reserves the right to direct Members to use certain numbers to access the Service or to restrict use of specific access numbers.
