Terms and Conditions

This Agreement constitutes the full and entire understanding and agreement between the parties with regard to the supply of the Service by Central Coast Internet.
Provision of Service
Central Coast Internet shall provide Customer with the Service. The Service shall be generally available 24 hours a day, seven days a week except for service maintenance times or other unforseen events.

Where the service is provided via wireless microwave, the service may be effected by the terrain, weather conditions, foliage, electronic interference eg microwave ovens, Bluetooth connected devices, other wireless LAN equipment or any other electronic devices. As the service operates in the unlicensed ISM band, there is no legal protection against this interference with the exception that it is illegal to provide Internet access without a Telecommunications Licence.

Central Coast Internet shall provide Customer with the Service. The Service shall be generally available 24 hours a day, seven days a week except for service maintenance times or other unforseen events. The service requires power at both the customers home and the transmission station to function, if access to Emergency or other numbers is required during this time it is the customers responsibility to ensure they have alternative means of making a call. While it may be possible to call Emergency numbers, the location of the caller may not be registered with the call centre and the customer may need to verify their location with emergency services in order to receive an appropriate response.
The charges for using the Service are detailed in this Agreement. Central Coast Internet retains the right to alter these charges from time to time and Customer shall be given one month's written notice, or at the end of the contract period, by letter, facsimile or electronic mail, of any such alterations.

Customer agrees to pay the charges via credit card which shall be debited automatically with the registration fee, any hardware and the first months connection fee, with subsequent monthly connection fees at the beginning of each charge period and usage fees at the end of each charge period. Should this credit card number expire or should Central Coast Internet otherwise be unable to debit valid charges to this credit card number, Central Coast Internet may immediately and without notice withdraw Customer's access to the Service. Any penalty charges incurred, as a result of Central Coast Internet processing an expired credit card shall be borne by the customer. If requested by the Customer Central Coast Internet will send a Tax Invoice for the charges via email at no charge. A charge will be made for printed and posted invoices.
