To utilize our Site or Services, you will need appropriate computing and communications equipment, including appropriate computer hardware and software and a wireless network card to access the Services. You are solely responsible for obtaining and maintaining this equipment and for the security of such equipment. You are solely responsible for keeping your hardware and software (including operating systems and browsers) updated, and we strongly recommend that you employ firewalls and anti-virus/anti-malware software, and browse with care. We are not responsible for the internet as a whole, but rather only for our own Site.
2. Limited right to access Services. TengoInternet hereby grants you a personal, revocable single-user, limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable right to utilize the Services and the Site. We may, at any time and from time to time in our sole discretion, change the locations at which access to the Services are available (each, a “Location”) or restrict or terminate access at any specific Location. Depending on the payment plan under which you are utilizing the Services (your “Plan”), you may be permitted to use the Services at only one Location or at more than one Location. Please refer to the Site and/or, as applicable, the on-line registration page for your Location, for additional information regarding your Plan and where you are entitled to access the Services. Any violation of this Agreement or the AUP will be grounds to revoke your right to utilize all Services and/or the Site. In addition, we may at any time in our sole discretion, (i) promulgate or modify practices and limits concerning excessive use of the Services, including the maximum amount of use or bandwidth, or (ii) direct customers to use only certain methods to access the Services or the Site, or any portion of any thereof.
3. Account, Password and Security. Depending on your Plan and/or Location, upon registration, you may receive a user name and may choose a password. If you receive a user name and password, you hereby agree that (i) you are the only authorized user of your account; (ii) you are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your user name and password and for any and all acts or omissions that occur under your account, user name or password; (iii) you will notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your account, user name or password; any loss of your password; or any other breach of security; (iv) user names and passwords are the property of TengoInternet, which may alter or replace them at any time and from time to time in its sole discretion; (v) you will not log in more than once at the same time on your account or use more than one user name or more than one password when you access or use any of the Services; and (vi) you will not share your user name or password with any other person or entity. You agree to ensure that you exit from your account and/or access to the Services at the end of each session by closing each Internet application.
4. Fees and Payment.
4(A). At some Locations, access to the Services are provided to you by the Location owner as an amenity to you, but at other Locations you may be required to pay a fee to us for access. In addition, if any optional products are ever available from us (“Optional Products”), and you purchase any such products, you are responsible to pay the stated fee for the products. Current prices for the Services and for any Optional Products or services are posted on the Site and, as applicable, on the on-line registration page (or ancillary log-in pages) for your Location. TengoInternet reserves the right to change prices and institute additional or different fees at any time.
4(B). You agree to pay for all amounts charged to your account with respect to the Services (including any charges associated with your Plan, regardless of your actual usage) and you authorize TengoInternet to charge such amounts to any credit card number you have provided. In the event we are unable to charge such amounts to the credit card number you have provided, you will remain responsible for and agree to pay such charges by other reasonable means acceptable to TengoInternet. If you purchase Services for which you are required to pay a fee, you agree to provide us or our designee with accurate and complete billing information including your name, address, telephone number, and credit card/billing information, and to keep such information current if you purchased any Services that include recurring billing. If you have any questions regarding charges to your account, you should contact TengoInternet at email@example.com. All charges are considered valid unless disputed in writing within sixty (60) days after the billing date; adjustments will not be made for charges that are more than 60 days old. All amounts are payable in U.S. Dollars, without any setoff or deduction. Payments are typically due in advance of using the Services (recurring billing items would be due each month or as stipulated on the Site or Location log in page). In addition to all other amounts payable by you for access to the Services or Optional Products, you are responsible for (and will pay) all taxes (including, without limitation, sales, use and excise taxes) applicable to your use of the Services, excluding any taxes based on our income or assets.
4(C). Late payments incur interest at the rate of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month, or the maximum legal rate allowed by law, whichever is less, on any outstanding balance for such time as the outstanding balance remains past due. Delinquent accounts may be suspended or cancelled, in our sole discretion; however, charges will continue to accrue until the account is cancelled and interest at the rate set forth above and reasonable late charges, may be added. You are responsible for our costs of collection if you are late in paying and we incur such costs. If your account is suspended or cancelled, and if we determine in our sole discretion, to allow reinstatement of your account, you may be billed an additional charge for such reinstatement, not to exceed $50.00. We are not responsible for any costs or expenses (e.g., for overdrawn accounts or exceeding credit card limits) resulting from charges billed by TengoInternet.
5. Monitoring; Termination; Service Interruptions.
5(A). We have no obligation to monitor use of any of the Services and do not actively monitor such use under normal circumstances, but we reserve the right to do so (and if necessary to disclose the results thereof) to satisfy any laws, rules, regulations, ordinances, judgments, orders or decrees; to comply with any governmental or legal demands or requests; to operate the Services; to enforce this Agreement; or to protect ourselves, our suppliers, owners or operators of any Location, or other customers, from losses or potential legal liability. Similarly, we do not exercise editorial control or review over the content of any website, electronic mail transmission, newsgroup or other material created or accessible over or through the Services. However, we may remove, block, filter or restrict by any means any materials, information or content that (a) in our sole discretion, we believe may be illegal, may subject us or third parties to liability or may violate this Agreement or (b) any Location owner/manager may instruct us to block or filter. We may also cooperate with legal authorities and/or third parties in the investigation of any suspected or alleged crime or civil wrong, and you hereby release TengoInternet from any liability arising out of any such cooperation. You agree to permit TengoInternet or its representatives to access your account and records to investigate complaints or allegations regarding possible breach of this Agreement.
5(B). We reserve the right at any time in our sole discretion, with or without notice, to restrict, suspend or terminate access by one, some, or all persons or entities to all or any portion of the Services, the Site, or any associated equipment, hardware or software (the “System”) or to modify or discontinue all or any portion of the Services. Without limitation of the foregoing, TengoInternet may in its sole discretion, interrupt the Services or the Site (or any portion of any thereof) for maintenance and other operational reasons. Where practicable, we will endeavor to post or otherwise provide notice of scheduled interruptions. We have no responsibility for the deletion of, or the failure to store, any materials, information or content (including messages or other communications) maintained or transmitted by use of the Services, the System or the Site (or any portion of any thereof). In no event will you receive any compensation or refund related to any of the matters described in this section nor will TengoInternet be liable to you or any other person or entity for any such matters.

10. INDEMNIFICATION .
You agree to and shall indemnify, hold harmless and, at the request of TengoInternet, defend (with counsel reasonably acceptable to TengoInternet) TengoInternet and its owners, officers, directors, employees, agents and representatives (“Tengo Indemnitees”) from and against any and all claims, demands, charges, losses, liabilities, obligations, costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) (collectively, “Losses”) incurred by any Tengo Indemnitees with respect to, as a result of, based on or in connection with (i) any breach by you of any provision of this Agreement (including the Policies), and/or (ii) any claim that you (or any other user of your account) infringed or misappropriated any intellectual property, proprietary or other right of any person or entity. You will be obligated to indemnify the Tengo Indemnitees for any of the foregoing regardless of whether the Loss in question arises in whole or in part from any negligent act or omission of a Tengo Indemnitee, from strict liability in tort of a Tengo Indemnitee, or otherwise, but in such event you will not be responsible for that portion of the Loss that results from a negligent act or omission of an indemnified person or entity.
We will notify you of any matter in respect of which a Tengo Indemnitee seeks indemnification from you promptly after we become aware of such matter; provided, however, that any failure to give prompt notice of such matter will not relieve you from any of your obligations hereunder with respect to such matter unless (and then only to the extent that) such failure materially and adversely affects your ability to defend the claim or action arising out of such matter. In the event that a Tengo Indemnitee requests that you defend it with respect to any Loss, you will assume the defense of such matter, provided that we will have the right to participate in the defense with counsel of our own choice (at our cost) and to approve any settlement or compromise, or any consent to entry of any judgment, unless such settlement, compromise or consent includes a release by claimants in favor of the Tengo Indemnitee from all liability in respect to such matter and does not include any other material restrictions on the Tengo Indemnitee. In the event that a Tengo Indemnitee requests that you defend with respect to any Loss, you will keep TengoInternet informed at all times as to the status of your efforts and consult with us concerning the same.
11(A). You may terminate your account at any time, for any reason or for no reason, by providing notice to TengoInternet either by mail or courier (see Section 15 below) or by email to TengoInternet (which shall include your return email address) at firstname.lastname@example.org. A termination notice will be effective as soon as it is processed (and in all cases, not later than ten (10) days after the date it is received). You will still be responsible for payment for all usage through the date of termination. No monies will be refunded to you in the case of any such termination.
11(B). Your account, and any right to use or access any portion of the Services or the System, will automatically expire upon expiration of your Plan.
11(C). Upon a breach by TengoInternet of any obligation under this Agreement that is not cured within five (5) days after you provide TengoInternet with written notice of such breach, you may terminate your account immediately, effective upon notice by you to TengoInternet, in which event TengoInternet will refund to you the amount (if any) of fees actually received by TengoInternet from you for internet access services that are allocable to the period between the effective date of termination and the expiration of your Plan.
11(D). If for any reason you are dissatisfied with any portion of the Services, the System or the Site, your sole and exclusive remedy (subject to Section 11(C) above) is to discontinue using the Services, System and/or the Site, and you will not be entitled to any refund.
11(E). We may terminate this Agreement, your account, or your use of or access to all or any portion of the Services, the System and/or the Site, at any time in our sole discretion, including if TengoInternet believes you have failed to pay any applicable charges when due or have otherwise breached any provision of this Agreement (including the AUP and any other Policies) or have furnished TengoInternet with false or misleading information (“Cause”). If we terminate for Cause, you are not entitled to any refund of prepaid amounts for Services which you will not receive as a result of such termination.
