issue you a credit for the amounts represented thereby.

5. Limitation of Liability and Indemnification
You acknowledge and understand that ITP's
liability is limited for any Service outage and/or inability to dial
911 from your line or to access emergency
service personnel, as set forth in this document. You agree to
defend, indemnify, and hold harmless ITP, its officers, directors,
employees, affiliates and agents and any other service provider who
furnishes services to Customer in connection with this Agreement or
the Service, from any and all claims, losses, damages, fines,
penalties, costs and expenses (including, without limitation,
reasonable attorneys fees) by, or on behalf of, Customer or any
third party or user of Customer's Service relating to the absence,
failure or outage of the Service, including Enhanced 911
and/or inability of Customer or any third person or
party or user of Customer's Service to be able to dial 911 or to
access emergency service personnel.
C. Failure to Designate the Correct Physical Address for Enhanced 911:
The address which the
Customer indicated on the sign-up information is the address which
is applied to your Service for Enhanced 911.
Should you need to change this address, you must contact ITP
Customer Service immediately to correct this address. It may take up
to three business days to put through a change of address or update
of an address. Failure to provide the current and correct physical
address and location of your ITP equipment will result in any
Emergency Service communication you may make being routed to
the incorrect local emergency service provider.
D. Requires Re-Activation if You Change Your Number:
You acknowledge and understand that Enhanced 911 does not function if
you change your phone number unless and until you have contacted ITP
Customer Service and have been informed by them that your new Enhanced
911 address is re-activated.
Enhanced 911 must be re-activated. Although you
may have activated Enhanced 911 with your
former ITP phone number, you must separately activate Enhanced 911 for any new number.
You acknowledge and understand that Enhanced 911 does not function if you
change your phone number unless and until you have contacted ITP
Customer Service and have been informed by them that your new
Enhanced 911 address is re-activated.
Enhanced 911 must be re-activated. Although you
may have activated Enhanced 911 with your
former ITP phone number, you must separately activate Emergency
Calling Service dialing for any new number.
E. Change of Physical Location of ITP Equipment:
You acknowledge and understand that Enhanced 911 does not function
properly or may not function at all if you take your equipment with
you away from the address or physical location that you have
F. Requires Re-Activation if You Move:
You acknowledge and understand that Enhanced 911 does not function
properly or at all if you move or change the physical location of
your ITP equipment to a different street address, unless and until
you have successfully contacted ITP Customer Service and received
confirmation from them that your Enhanced 911
is active. Enhanced 911 must be re-activated
although you may have activated Enhanced 911
using your former address, and you must separately activate
Enhanced 911 for any new physical address.
Failure to provide the current and correct physical address and
location of your ITP equipment will result in any Enhanced 911
you may make being routed to the incorrect local
emergency service provider.
G. Possibility of Network Congestion and/or Reduced Speed for Routing Enhanced 911:
You acknowledge and understand that there is a greater possibility of network congestion
and/or reduced speed in the routing of an Enhanced 911
communication made using your ITP Equipment as compared to
traditional 911 dialing over traditional public telephone networks.
You acknowledge and understand that Enhanced 911 from your ITP equipment
will be routed to the general
telephone number for the local emergency service provider, and will
not be routed to the 911 dispatcher(s) who are specifically
designated to receive incoming 911 calls at such local provider's
facilities when such calls are routed using traditional 911 dialing.
You acknowledge and understand that there may be a greater
possibility that the general telephone number for the local
emergency service provider will produce a busy signal or will take
longer to answer, as compared to those 911 calls routed to the 911
dispatcher(s) who are specifically designated to receive incoming
911 calls using traditional 911 dialing.
H. Automated Number Identification:
It is not possible for the Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) and the local emergency
personnel to identify your phone number when you dial 911 to access
Enhanced 911. ITP's system is configured in most
instances to send the automated number identification information;
however, the phone system routes the traffic to the PSAP and the
PSAP itself must be able to receive the information and pass it
along properly, and they are not yet always technically capable of
doing so. You acknowledge and understand that PSAP and emergency
personnel may or may not be able to identify your phone number to
call you back if the call is unable to be completed, is dropped or
disconnected, or if you are unable to speak to tell them your phone
number and/or if the Service is not operational for any reason,
including without limitation those listed elsewhere in this
I. Automated Location Identification:
It is not possible to transmit identification of the address that you have listed to the
Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) and local emergency personnel
for your area when you use Enhanced 911. You
acknowledge and understand that you will need to state the nature of
your emergency promptly and clearly, including your location, as
PSAP personnel will NOT have this information. You acknowledge and
understand that PSAP and emergency personnel will not be able to
find your location if the call is unable to be completed, is dropped
or disconnected, if you are unable to speak to tell them your
location and/or if the Service is not operational for any reason,
including without limitation those listed elsewhere in this
J. Alternative Emergency Calling Service Arrangements:
You acknowledge that
ITP does not offer primary line or lifeline services. You should
always have an alternative means of accessing traditional E911
services. By agreeing to these terms you are also agreeing to the
terms listed in the 911 disclaimer
A. ITP will not be liable for: (i) any failure of
performance due to causes beyond its control, including, but not
limited to, acts of God, fires, floods or other catastrophes;

difficulties; and any law, order, regulation or other action of any
governing authority or agency thereof; or (ii) delayed installation of ITP's facilities, commencement of service or postponement due to shipping issues beyond ITP’s control.
B. With respect to any other factual
allegation, legal claim, or dispute by you or by any others, for
damages associated with the ordering (including the reservation of
any specific number for use with a service), installation (including
delays thereof), provision, termination, maintenance, repair,
interruption, or restoration of any service or facilities offered by
ITP, ITP's liability,
if any, will be limited as follows:
1. With respect to the routing of calls by ITP
to public safety answering points or municipal emergency service

monetary damages incurred and proved by you as the direct result of
ITP's action, or
failure to act, in routing the call, or (b) the sum of
2. With respect to the provisioning of, or any
error or omission in, data, information, or content furnished in
connection with any service provided by ITP, for example, Directory
liability will be limited to the lesser of: (a) the amount of actual
money damages proven by you to have been incurred as the proximate
result of your reliance on such data, information, or content; or
3. ITP shall not be liable for any delays or
incompletion or costs or charges pursuant to a delay or incompletion
in local number portability (LNP).
C. IN NO EVENT WILL ITP BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR
ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR
PUNITIVE LOSS OR DAMAGE OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING LOST PROFITS (WHETHER
OR NOT ITP HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSS OR
DAMAGES) BY REASON OF ANY ACT OR OMISSION IN ITS PERFORMANCE UNDER
THIS AGREEMENT. THIS SECTION SURVIVES TERMINATION OF THIS
D. ITP will be indemnified, defended, and held
harmless by you against all claims of loss or damage arising from
the use of service furnished by ITP, including:
1. Allegations or claims for libel, slander,
invasion of privacy, or infringement of copyright arising out of the
material, data, information, or other content transmitted via ITP
2. All other allegations and claims arising out
of any intentional act or omission by you or others authorized by
you to use the service, in connection with any service provided by
E. ITP MAKES NO EXPRESS OR IMPLIED
REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES ABOUT ITS SERVICES AND DISCLAIMS ANY
IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, WARRANTIES OR
IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
PURPOSE OR USE OR NONINFRINGEMENT.
ITP DOES NOT AUTHORIZE ANYONE TO MAKE A
WARRANTY ON ITP'S BEHALF AND YOU MAY NOT RELY ON ANY STATEMENT OF
WARRANTY AS A WARRANTY BY ITP.
F. ITP will not be liable for any act or
omission of any other company or companies furnishing a portion of
the service, or from any act or omission of a third party, including
those vendors participating in ITP offerings made to you, or for
damages associated with service, or equipment that it does not
furnish, or for damages that result from the operation of customer
provided systems, equipment, facilities or services that are
interconnected with ITP services.
VIII. DISPUTE RESOLUTION
IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU READ THIS ENTIRE
SECTION CAREFULLY. THIS SECTION PROVIDES FOR RESOLUTION OF DISPUTES
THROUGH FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION BEFORE A NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR
INSTEAD OF IN A
BY A JUDGE OR JURY OR THROUGH A CLASS ACTION.
A. Binding Arbitration
process established by this section is governed by the Federal
Arbitration Act ("FAA"), 9 U.S.C. Sec. 1-16. Both you and ITP have
the right to take any dispute that qualifies to small claims court
rather than arbitration. All other disputes arising out of or
related to this Agreement (whether based in contract, tort, statute,
fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal or equitable theory)
must be resolved by final and binding arbitration. This includes any
dispute based on any product, service or advertising having a
connection with this Agreement and any dispute not finally resolved
by a small claims court. The arbitration will be conducted by one
arbitrator using the procedures described by this Section. You agree
that the appropriate jurisdiction for the arbitration is the State of
New York and you agree to submit to that jurisdiction. If any
portion of this Dispute Resolution Section is determined to be
unenforceable, then the remainder shall be given full force and
effect. The arbitration of any dispute involving $10,000 or less
shall be conducted in accordance with the Consumer Arbitration Rules
of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by this
Agreement, which are in effect on the date a dispute is submitted to
the AAA. The AAA's Commercial Arbitration Rules and fee schedules
will apply to any disputes in excess of $10,000. You have the right
to be represented by counsel in an arbitration. In conducting the
arbitration and making any award, the arbitrator shall be bound by
and strictly enforce the terms of this Agreement and may not limit,
expand, or otherwise modify its terms. The arbitrator may not award
punitive, exemplary or similar damages. The parties agree that an
award of such damages will be void if issued.
NO DISPUTE MAY BE JOINED WITH ANOTHER LAWSUIT,
OR IN AN ARBITRATION WITH A DISPUTE OF ANY OTHER PERSON, OR RESOLVED
ON A CLASS-WIDE BASIS. THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT AWARD DAMAGES THAT ARE
NOT EXPRESSLY AUTHORIZED BY THIS AGREEMENT AND MAY NOT AWARD
PUNITIVE DAMAGES OR ATTORNEYS' FEES UNLESS SUCH DAMAGES ARE
EXPRESSLY AUTHORIZED BY A STATUTE. YOU AND ITP BOTH WAIVE ANY CLAIMS
FOR AN AWARD OF DAMAGES THAT ARE EXCLUDED UNDER THIS
B. Arbitration Information and Filing
Before you take a dispute to arbitration or to
small claims court, you must first contact our Customer Care
Department representative at the customer service number on your ITP
invoice for the Services, or write to us,
and give us an opportunity to resolve the dispute:
You must describe your dispute and provide ITP
with any supporting documentation. Likewise, if ITP has a dispute
with you, it will notify you by letter sent to your billing address
and attempt to resolve it before pursuing arbitration.
ANY CLAIM OR DISPUTE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING
TO THIS AGREEMENT MUST BE BROUGHT WITHIN TWO YEARS AFTER THE DATE
THE BASIS FOR THE CLAIM OR DISPUTE FIRST ARISES.
C. Fees and Expenses of Arbitration
Each party must pay
its own expenses associated with any arbitration, including its
attorney's fees. If you file a request for arbitration, you will
have to pay a filing fee in accordance with the AAA fee schedule.
Under AAA rules, some costs such as the arbitrator's fees and
expenses will be allocated between the parties.
D. In addition to the procedures described in
this Section for resolving a dispute, you may also have the right to
file a complaint with an appropriate federal or state regulatory
IX. MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS

way affecting the remaining parts or provisions of this Agreement.
G. Governing Law and Forum Selection.

governed by and construed under the laws of the State of
and applicable federal law, without regard to its choice

VII shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. This governing
law provision applies no matter where you reside, or where you use
or pay for the services. You further agree that the appropriate jurisdiction for the arbitration is the State of New York, and you agree to submit yourself and any claim you may have against ITP to jurisdiction in the State of New York.
