Changes to this Agreement
The rates applicable to the Service (the “Rates”) shall be as set forth on the rates tab on the LEADM2M web site or included as part of any purchase agreement set forth via e-mail communication. As the rates for telecommunications services, in general, are constantly changing, LEADM2M shall have the right to change the Rates applicable to the Service at any time and without notice. LEADM2M may also amend other terms of this Agreement at any time provided that LEADM2M gives prior written email notice to the Customer Primary Contact Person set forth on first page of the Agreement of such changes. Customer shall have the right, upon the occurrence of any change to the Rates or any other amendment to the Agreement to terminate the Agreement on written notice to the Company given not more than thirty (30) days following the effective date of the applicable Rate change or other amendment.

LEADM2M’s obligation to deliver the Service is subject to LEADM2M’s account approval of Customer in its sole discretion and LEADM2M may at any time require credit card payment or prepayment for the Service as a condition to its delivery. Service is normally available to Customer’s phones whenever a user is able to connect to a GSM network, in a country where LEADM2M roaming coverage is available but the Service relies on the networks of various third party wireless telecommunications carriers (“Carriers”) and LEADM2M cannot guaranty that the Service will be uninterrupted, timely, secure or free from error or will operate without packet loss or degradation. LEADM2M may choose not to provide service to countries or calling areas at its sole discretion, and may discontinue Service to any country or calling area at any time without notice. In addition, at any time, LEADM2M may prevent use by Customer of the Service for any reason, including fraud, excessive usage, billing irregularities and unlawful use. If Customer’s credit card is invalid, or payment is declined by the credit card issuer at the time a charge is attempted, or if Customer otherwise fails to pay any amount when due hereunder, LEADM2M may discontinue the Service and Customer will not be able to use the Service until its account is paid in full and LEADM2M has reinstated Customer’s Service.
The Customer is responsible for ensuring that any hardware equipment, or software application running on that equipment, that uses a the Service complies with any and all requirements of all GSM networks and will not cause any damage or interruption to any mobile phone network. The customer accepts all liabilities for damage or interruption to any mobile phone network caused as a result of the hardware equipment or software application running on that equipment. If the Customer is unsure whether the equipment or software being used may cause any damage to a mobile phone network, the customer may request LEADM2M to gain approval prior to use. Whether approval is sought is at the sole discretion of LEADM2M.
Customer agrees to use the Service for lawful purposes only. Customer shall not use, or allow any third (3rd) parties to use the Service in any way that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, libelous, deceptive, fraudulent, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, sexually explicit, profane, hateful, discriminatory, or other objectionable material of any kind, including, without limitation, material that encourages unlawful conduct. If LEADM2M believes, at its sole discretion, that Customer has engaged in any of the foregoing conduct, LEADM2M reserves the right to (i) immediately suspend or terminate Customer’s Service; and/or (ii) forward the offensive materials, Customer’s identity and other personal information to the proper authorities for investigation and prosecution. The Customer consents to the forwarding of any such communications and information to these authorities or law enforcement.
Customer will be solely liable for any and all liability that may arise out of the content transmitted to any person, whether authorized or unauthorized, using the Service. Customer shall assure that the use of the Service and content comply at all times with all applicable laws, regulations and written and electronic instructions for use. LEADM2M reserves the right to terminate or suspend the Service and remove Customer’s content from the Service, if we determine, in our sole and absolute discretion, that such use or content does not conform to the requirements set forth in this Agreement.
Customer’s Means of Access
Customer agrees it will not access (or attempt to access) the Site or the Service by any means other than through the interfaces LEADM2M provides, unless specifically allowed to do so in a separate agreement signed by LEADM2M.
For any of portion of the Service accessible only through use of application programming interfaces (“APIs”), Customer agrees that it will access the Service only using appropriate APIs that are compliant with the API instructions provided by LEADM2M from time to time and Customer will not access the Service through any other automated means, such as scripts or web crawlers.
LEADM2M has the right to assign and control any identification number (IMSI, MSISDN, MIN or similar) assigned to a SIM card or other device by us or a Carrier to allow a SIM card or other device to access and/or use the Service. Customer understands that, subject to any regulations about portability of numbers, Customer has no property right in any of these numbers and that they may be changed from time to time.
Customer acknowledges and understands that LEADM2M or its Carrier partners may make temporary changes to the Site or Service required by an emergency, as well as take actions deemed reasonably necessary to protect or optimize our or their networks or services. Customer further acknowledges and understands that some of these actions may interrupt or prevent legitimate communications and usage, including, for example, use of message filtering/blocking software to prevent SPAM or viruses, limitations on throughput, scheduled maintenance and the like. LEADM2M will provide as much advance notice as reasonably possible of any planned or emergency maintenance windows by email or by posting on the Site but we can make no assurances that Customer’s legitimate communications and usage will not be interrupted or prevented in such circumstances.
Customer agrees that Customer will not (and will cause its employees, contractors, consultants, agents and other representatives to not) at any time:
- modify or make derivative works based on the Site, the SIM cards or other devices received from LEADM2M, the Service or APIs or reverse engineer any of the software or content used in any of the foregoing, except for software tools identified as open source or for which permission to modify is explicitly granted;

SIM Activation, Minimum Monthly Usage & Monthly Maintenance Fees for Inactive SIMs
LEADM2M allows 60 days after the SIM purchase for SIM to be activated. This time is provided for logistics and installation in the field. If Customer did not activate the SIM within 60 days after the SIM purchase, the SIM will be activated automatically, unless a different agreement is specified in the Purchase Agreement.
Billing and Payment
Service operates on a prepaid billing system. LEADM2M will provide a detailed billing summary for the Customer online. The format of this billing summary may change from time to time without notice to Customer. Charges set forth in such billing summaries shall, unless otherwise agreed by LEADM2M, be prepaid, using the Customer credit card(s) on file or via Wire Transfer (domestic or international). Data usage charges, and all other fees, will be deducted from Customer’s prepaid account as incurred and without notice to Customer. If the auto-recharge option is turned on, low balances will result in automatic charging of Customer’s credit card(s) on file, and the value of these charges will be added to Customer’s prepaid account balance. Customer hereby authorizes LEADM2M to charge such amounts to Customer’s credit card(s) on file and to deduct any charges from Customer’s prepaid account.
Customer charges shall include, without limitation, data usage charges, charges for cellular data usage fees, monthly fees, and any other fees, or charges applicable to the Service, plus taxes and surcharges. If any individual activates Service on behalf of the Customer but was not authorized to do so, Customer agrees that it shall nevertheless be responsible for the corresponding charges, and such individual will be jointly and severally, together with the Customer, responsible for all charges to the account and will be fully bound by this Agreement as though he or she had activated Service on behalf of the Customer. Suspended for non-payment SIM cards will incur the service restoration fee. SIM cards that has been suspended for 3 months of non-payment will be permanently removed from the customer account.

In the event that the parties are not able to resolve any dispute or controversy through informal discussions, the parties agree that any dispute arising under this Agreement shall be resolved by binding arbitration before the American Arbitration Association in Richmond, Virginia, under the then-prevailing rules of the American Arbitration Association. In such arbitration, the prevailing party shall be entitled to receive its attorneys’ fees and costs, as part of such award. The decision of the arbitrator(s) shall be final and unreviewable for error of law or legal reasoning of any kind and may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
