7.1          TollFreeForwarding.com reserves the right to amend and/or discontinue its free trial offer at anytime without prior notification.


7.2          TollFreeForwarding.com reserves the right to establish and/or amend the criteria for qualification of its free trial offer at anytime, without prior notification. Further, not all accounts will qualify.


7.3         Basic requirements for our free trial offer include, but are not limited to the following:

  • You have presented a valid credit/debit card for payment; and you are the legal and authorized user and owner of said credit/debit card.
  • Upon AUTHORIZATION, your credit/debit card is approved by your bank or financial institution.
  • You have completed our email verification process.
  • You have had no previous account(s) with TollFreeForwarding.com.
  • Your order is approved upon manual review by our support and sales staff.

7.4          By signing up for our free trial offer you are hereby authorizing TollFreeForwarding.com to initiate an AUTHORIZATION against your credit/debit card's available balance in an amount equal to the total monthly/annual cost of the phone number(s) you have ordered; this means that the funds that are authorized may not be considered available funds in said account. Further, once the free trial concludes, TollFreeForwarding.com will immediately charge the credit/debit card you have presented for payment, regardless of whether or not you used the Service during the free trial period, without further authorization, unless you present a different credit/debit card (which would then be billed immediately) or if you arrange to cancel Service prior to the conclusion of the free trial period. This immediate charge to your credit/debit card, following the free trial period, is completely NON-REFUNDABLE.


7.5          Conclusion of the free trial period does not automatically terminate your Service rather it converts your account into a regular and ongoing paid account. You will be billed immediately after the free trial period and each month thereafter unless you arrange to cancel the Services.


7.6          If you are granted our free trial offer, your free trial will expire at the end of the stated term or upon the exhaustion of the free call time credit, whichever should occur first. If you do not cancel the Service during the free trial period, you authorize us to charge your credit/debit card immediately following the free trial period, for the minimum monthly and/or annual dues and any overages, and to continue charging the credit/debit card(s) on file for your account, without prior notice to you, each month or whenever your balance reaches its low balance threshold or, until such time as you cancel your Service and all fees and charges due have been paid in full.


7.7          The free trial/demo call time credit may not be transferred, exchanged, refunded, or used to pay monthly Service charge(s), unbilled charges or any other fees and charges of TollFreeForwarding.com.


7.8          If you cancel before the free trial/demo expires you will not be billed for the account you have cancelled. If you cancel before the free trial/demo expires, the authorization against your credit/debit card may remain in effect for 3-4 additional days after cancellation. You may wish to contact your bank or financial institution to ascertain their policies in such matters, as each bank and/or financial institution varies in their policies on such matters.


7.9          During the setup of your account, any and all phone number(s) you order will remain in our pool of available phone numbers until you have completed the order process and your account has been approved and activated by TollFreeForwarding.com; it is possible, while your account is waiting to be activated by TollFreeForwarding.com, for another subscriber to purchase the phone number(s) you selected before your account was approved and activated. In such case, once your account is approved and activated, you will need to select a different phone number(s) from our pool of available phone numbers.


7.10        While we make every effort to review and activate accounts instantly, it is not uncommon to experience a brief delay. If this occurs, during this brief period, any phone number(s) you selected at sign-up will remain in our pool of available phone numbers and may be purchased by another subscriber. In such case, you will need to select a different phone number(s) if/when your TollFreeForwarding.com account is activated. TollFreeForwarding.com shall not be liable for any harm or loss arising from such a case.

7.11        Customers electing the "Bill Me Option" during their free trial should note that the Bill Me Option applies to the first invoice only. During your trial, you will receive your first invoice covering your first monthly minimum payment for all numbers on your account. You must pay this invoice by the time your free trial expires in order to avoid account suspension and/or loss of your account and phone number(s). All services must be pre-paid for the coming month. Invoices generated under the Bill Me Option are due immediately upon receipt. Failure to pay will result in account suspension; failure to pay the invoice within two weeks of account suspension will result in account cancellation and phone number forfeiture.


ARTICLE 8- INSTANT ACTIVATION


8.1          If you provide a free email address at sign-up (i.e., Yahoo!, Gmail, Hotmail, Live, etc.) your account may not be activated instantly. Additionally, we may require that you submit images of the front and back of the credit/debit card you've presented and images of your official identification (if your selected payment method is other than a credit/debit card, an image of your official identification may be required) before your account can be approved. Please allow at least 24 business hours for processing of this information.


8.2          You may not begin using the phone number(s) you've ordered until such time as your account is approved and activated by us.

ARTICLE 11- PAYMENTS AND BILLING


11.1       Payment(s) are due, in full, on the first day of each monthly/annual term ("due date "). If payment is not received on or by the due date and you do not have sufficient credit allowance, TollFreeForwarding.com will suspend your Service until payment has been received and posted to your account. Annual plans are prepaid a year in advance in order to take advantage of price savings. In addition to the prepaid amount for the year, you must pay for any minutes used over what is provided by your plan. Failure to pay for the additional minutes will result in your account being suspended. If you cancel service before your year ends or if service is terminated for any reason, you will not be reimbursed for the months not used.


11.2        Pricing information may be found under the "Pricing" tab at: TollFreeForwarding.com. We may increase or decrease our prices from time to time, without prior notice. If notice is given, such notice will be considered given and effective on the date such changes are made to the price schedule and/or posted at the TollFreeForwarding.com website address. The new prices listed there supersede any and all previously agreed to prices.


11.3       You may obtain a monthly billing statement detailing usage for the previous month by accessing your online web account at the TollFreeForwarding.com operated website at the beginning of each month.


11.4        TollFreeForwarding.com reserves the right to suspend or cancel your account and repossess and re-assign any phone number(s) associated with your account, without prior notice, for non-payment or any violation of any provision of this agreement.


11.5        You agree that you are solely responsible for ensuring that you maintain an adequate TollFreeForwarding.com account balance. While we may periodically send you email notifications regarding your account's status, we are not obligated to do so. Accordingly, in the event that we attempt to notify you of your account's status and are unsuccessful, you hold TollFreeForwarding.com harmless of any harm or loss resulting from the suspension and/or cancellation of your account and/or repossession and re-assignment of your phone number(s) as a result of the same.


11.6        We begin billing you for call time when the called party, or a voicemail system, answering machine, facsimile machine, a key press greeting, and/or a PBX/Auto Attendant, answers the call, and ends when one of the parties disconnects the call. It is important to note; however, that some foreign carriers with whom TollFreeForwarding.com must interconnect with in order to terminate calls to foreign regions, designate a call as "answered" at the first ring or after a certain number of rings and will thereby charge TollFreeForwarding.com for a completed call. In cases such as this, TollFreeForwarding.com will charge you as if the call was answered by the called party.


11.7        We reserve the right to obtain payment from any and all credit/debit card(s) on file for your account with TollFreeForwarding.com, at anytime, without further authorization. Further, if payment is not immediately available on said card(s), we reserve the right to continue to attempt to obtain payment until such a time as payment is successful.


11.8        If, as a result of our billing system and processes, your bank or financial account becomes overdrawn, you will be the sole party responsible for said fee(s). TollFreeForwarding.com will not reimburse you for any such fee(s) nor shall it be liable for any harm or loss you experience as a result of such.


11.9        We reserve the right to refuse or reject payments sent to us from "unconfirmed" and/or "unverified" PayPal accounts. If your PayPal payment is accepted by our Accounting Department, your payment will be posted to your TollFreeForwarding.com account within 24 business hours. Further, all such payments are posted in the order in which they were received.


11.10      Before we will accept any wire transfer, bank check, or money order payment(s) from you, we require that an image of your official government-issued identification be on file with our Accounting Department. Any such payment(s) sent, without first being given written approval to proceed with payment by our Accounting Department, will be held until verifiable identification has been received and approved by our Accounting Department. In such case, if identification is not received within seven (7) days from the date we receive your payment, your funds will be deemed forfeit and will be deposited by TollFreeForwarding.com.


11.11      All monies are payable to TollFreeForwarding.com in US currency only. If you send funds in any other currency, TollFreeForwarding.com may either reject your payment or convert the payment into US dollars using the exchange rate in effect at that time and assess a 2.5% conversion fee on your payment, which will be deducted from the payment after conversion.


11.12      You may not lower your account's Payment Settings below the minimum monthly/annual fee due for the phone number(s) you subscribe to.

11.13      We ask that you please allow at least 24 business hours, from the time we receive your check, money order, PayPal, or wire transfer payment(s), to have the payment(s) applied to your account. If your payment is received over the weekend period, your payment, if it is to be posted, will be applied to your account the following Monday; if your payment is received during a US holiday period, your payment will be applied to your account on the following business day in which we are opened. If you have not completed our email verification process, your payment will be held until such time as you complete the email verification process on our website.


11.14     If TollFreeForwarding.com finds that you are unable to pay for your Service, TollFreeForwarding.com reserves the right to require that you fund your account within a specified number of days and that all future payment(s) be made via money order or wire transfer only.


11.15     The monthly/annual minimum fee(s) are due each month, regardless of usage. Any unused included plan minutes will expire at the end of each month and will NOT "rollover" for future use.


11.16      We will not honor any limiting notations you make on/with your check, money order, wire transfer, PayPal, and/or credit card payment(s).


11.17      We reserve the right to dispute any chargeback initiated by you or your bank. Further, you agree that TollFreeForwarding.com may furnish any and all information it has on file for your account to the chargeback originating banking or financial Institution in an effort to validate our dispute of the chargeback(s).


11.18     You are solely responsible for updating your payment method whenever changes occur such as a change in your billing address, name, credit/debit card number, lost/stolen credit/debit card, and the like.


11.19     By default, your account's Payment Settings are set to indicate a minimum "Normal Balance," which is set by default as the total minimum monthly/annual fee(s) due for the phone number(s) you subscribe to. Cancellation of a phone number(s) will not automatically adjust your account's Payment Settings to reflect the new total minimum monthly/annual fee(s) due. If you decide to cancel a phone number(s) from your account, you must adjust your account's "Normal Balance" to reflect the change; if you fail to do so, your account will continue to be replenished, at minimum, to the "Normal Balance" value in place prior to the cancellation of the phone number(s) you cancelled. NO ADJUSTMENTS will be given to your credit/debit card in such case; any excess amount charged will remain available on your account until it is exhausted.


11.20      When you receive your credit/debit card statement(s) our name may appear on your statement as either "TollFreeForwarding.com" or "Panda Global Communications."


11.21      We reserve the right not to post your bank check or PayPal eCheck payment until such time as the payment(s) has cleared your bank account and is deposited by TollFreeForwarding.com. We shall not be held liable for any interruption of the Service during this interim waiting period. Because of this, we strongly recommend that you make such payment arrangements well in advance, to avoid interruption of the Service.


ARTICLE 12- AFFILIATE PROGRAMS


12.1        We may, at our sole discretion, offer affiliate-based programs that offer bonuses and/or credits to TollFreeForwarding.com subscribers who participate in such programs.

ARTICLE 13- VANITY/CUSTOM PHONE NUMBERS


13.1        If you order a vanity/custom phone number(s) (e.g., 1-800-O-VANITY), we ask that you please allow at least 7-9 business days for processing of your order. If the vanity phone number you have requested is available for purchase, and we secure the phone number(s) for you, we will send you an email notification to that effect.


13.2        You should not publish a vanity/custom phone number(s) you order until such time as we have given you written notice that the phone number(s) you have ordered are activated on your TollFreeForwarding.com account and you have thoroughly tested the phone number(s) to ensure that the functionality of said number(s) suits your needs. If you fail to adhere to this provision, or any other provision of this TOS agreement, you do so at your own risk.


13.3        If your Service is cancelled, for any reason, your previously assigned vanity/custom phone number may be re-assigned, immediately, to another subscriber.


ARTICLE 14- PORTABILITY


14.1        You agree that TollFreeForwarding.com maintains exclusive ownership of the Service(s) it provides to you.


14.2        You agree and understand that TollFreeForwarding.com is unable to influence the outcome of your request to port a number(s) into its systems. Further, TollFreeForwarding.com does not guarantee that your port request will be a success. If your transfer is a success, generally speaking, transfer requests for toll-free phone numbers, porting into our systems, take between 7-9 business days to process - it is important to note that this time frame is largely dependent on the speed with which your current provider responds to our request to port the phone number(s) into our systems. It is not uncommon for a transfer request to take longer than 7-9 business days; however. If your transfer request is unsuccessful, we may notify you of the response we received from your current provider; in such case, you may have the option of resubmitting the request.


14.3        You may port a phone number(s) away from TollFreeForwarding.com provided your account with TollFreeForwarding.com is active, in good standing, all monthly and/or annual dues (including any unbilled charges and/or fees) have been PAID IN FULL, we have received a transfer request from your new carrier requesting to port the phone number(s) away, and the phone number(s) you are requesting to port have each been active on your TollFreeForwarding.com account for at least 90 days. If your TollFreeForwarding.com account does not satisfy ALL of the aforementioned criteria, TollFreeForwarding.com reserves the right to reject your request to port said phone number(s) away from TollFreeForwarding.com and you hereby waive any right to contest the rejection. If the port is successful, we will terminate our Service for that phone number(s); if unsuccessful, for any reason, our Service to the phone number(s) you were attempting to port away from TollFreeForwarding.com will not terminate and you will continue to be responsible for paying TollFreeForwarding.com all charges and fees for the phone number(s) in question.


14.4        You may port a phone number(s) into our systems provided you are the current owner of the phone number(s) you wish to port, you have an active TollFreeForwarding.com account in good standing, your request to port the phone number(s) has been accepted and approved by the current carrier of said phone number(s), and you have paid the monthly cost(s), upfront, for each of the phone number(s) you wish to port into our system(s).


14.5        A successful port request does not constitute the cancellation of your TollFreeForwarding.com account. If you request to port a phone number(s) away from TollFreeForwarding.com and your request is approved and the phone number(s) released, you will remain responsible for any and all phone number(s) and/or Services you still have with us. You will continue to be responsible for all charges and fees associated with the remaining Services on your account with TollFreeForwarding.com until such time as you cancel your Service with us ENTIRELY.


14.6        You may not port away a phone number you have been assigned during the free trial period. Any attempts to do so will be rejected and will subject your free trial account to immediate cancelation by our Legal Department.


ARTICLE 15- REFUND POLICY


15.1        TollFreeForwarding.com will, upon your request, issue a refund of the UNUSED portion of your TollFreeForwarding.com account balance less any monthly dues and/or fees and other charges.

15.2        If you request a refund, funds will be refunded only to the same person or organization as named on the account. Refunds will be made either using the same form of payment that has been used on the account, credit card, PayPal, bank check, money order or wire transfer, or a bank check at the sole discretion of TollFreeForwarding.com.


15.3        If you request a refund, and the original form of payment was a credit/debit card, and the refund cannot be processed back to said card, for whatever reason, you must setup a PayPal account (if you don't already have one) in order to receive your refund. Once you have established your PayPal account you should notify our Billing Department directly to inform them of the particulars of the PayPal account you would like your refund issued to.


15.4        If you make a payment to TollFreeForwarding.com, and TollFreeForwarding.com suspects that you are or have been associated with fraud using our Service, your payment will be deemed forfeit immediately upon receipt. Accordingly, you will not be eligible for a refund of monies paid to TollFreeForwarding.com. TollFreeForwarding.com shall not be held liable for any harm or loss resulting from such action.


15.5        No credit allowance(s)/refund(s) will be issued, whatsoever, for any of the following, including but not limited to: non-usage, interruption of service, hung call(s), misdialed call(s), or any other activity, which increases your call volume and/or account usage.


15.6        If you do not agree with a charge(s) to your account and/or credit/debit card, with respect to your account with TollFreeForwarding.com, you must notify us in writing both at Billing@TollFreeForwarding.com and at the address written below, within thirty (30) days of the disputed transaction, with details substantiating the request. If you fail to notify us, as outlined above, within the time frame specified above, you agree to waive any and all right(s) to contest the transaction(s) in question. In no way does a billing adjustment/refund request constitute just cause for any delay in payment of the full amount due.
