StratusIQ Residential Terms of Service
These Terms of Service constitute the agreement (“Agreement”) between Falcon Broadband LLC doing business as StratusIQ of 555 Hathaway Drive, Colorado Springs, CO 80915 (“StratusIQ”) and the customer (“Customer”) who is receiving residential voice, video, and/or data services (“Services”) at a particular Residence (“Service Premises”) on the following terms. By allowing activation of StratusIQ Services at the Service Premises, the Customer acknowledges that they have read, understood, and agreed to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, and that the Customer is of legal age to enter the Agreement and become bound by its terms.
1.1 Regular Service Terms. Regular Services are offered monthly for a term which begins on the first day of the month in which StratusIQ activates Services at the Service Premises. Charges for Services begin on the date of activation. Subsequent terms of the agreement automatically renew monthly without further action from the Customer. Customer must request and confirm termination of the Services with our customer service department during normal business hours and is responsible for all charges to the date in which StratusIQ deactivates Services at the Service Premises. Some services are not proratable and the customer is responsible for the charges through the end of the current month of the deactivation. Expiration of the term or termination of the Services does not excuse the Customer from paying all unpaid charges, taxes, and fees due in relation to the agreement.
1.2 Promotional Terms. Services offered as promotions are offered under a promotional term which may vary by promotion but will be subject to early cancellation fees.
- Change of Services. Customer may add or remove different aspects of StratusIQ’s residential Services under the terms of this agreement. Additional fees will apply for change or cancellation of services offered under promotions prior to the end of the Promotional Term.
3.1 Service Deposit. Customer agrees to pay StratusIQ a service deposit determined by StratusIQ’s internal credit inquiry and guidelines. StratusIQ is not obligated to disclose the information returned from the credit inquiry or the internal guidelines which determine deposit amounts or whether deposits are required. Additional service deposits may be required if customer upgrades services beyond the initial Services activation to the Service Premises. If Customer meets StratusIQ’s standards for creditworthiness, and Customer pays each of Customer’s first six bills when due, then Customer’s service deposit will be credited to Customer’s account on the seventh bill. If any of Customer’s payments are not made by the dates due, or if any actions of Customer require StratusIQ to charge against Customer’s deposit, then Customer’s service deposit will be retained by StratusIQ.
Customer understands and agrees that failure to make payments by the due dates or termination of Services for any reason within six months of installation will result in StratusIQ retaining the service deposit. StratusIQ will credit the service deposit against unpaid service charges at its sole discretion, and the customer is still obligated to pay all unpaid equipment replacement charges, service charges, taxes and fees in relation to this Agreement.
3.2 Equipment Deposit. If Customer is leasing or using StratusIQ equipment for receiving the Services, Customer agrees to pay StratusIQ an equipment deposit determined by StratusIQ’s internal credit check and guidelines. StratusIQ is not obligated to disclose the information returned from the credit check or the internal guidelines which determine deposit amounts or whether deposits are required. Additional equipment deposits may be required if customer upgrades Services beyond the initial Services activation to the Service Premises. The equipment deposit will be retained by StratusIQ until all equipment is returned undamaged and with all external components including, but not limited to, remote controls, power cables, and cables for communicating to other devices.
Customer understands and agrees that failure to return all equipment undamaged for any reason will result in StratusIQ retaining the equipment deposit. StratusIQ will credit the equipment deposit against the equipment replacement charges for damaged or unreturned equipment at its sole discretion, and the customer is still obligated to pay all unpaid equipment replacement charges, service charges, taxes, and fees in relation to this Agreement.
- This Agreement shall automatically renew monthly unless Customer confirms deactivation with our customer service department during normal business hours, allows deactivation at the Services Premises and returns any equipment belonging to StratusIQ. StratusIQ reserves the right to suspend or discontinue providing all or portions of its residential services in general, or to terminate all or portions of the Customer’s Services, at any time in its sole discretion. If StratusIQ discontinues providing the Services, the Customer is responsible for pro-rated service charges accrued through the date that Services were deactivated at the Service Premises, and all unpaid equipment replacement charges, service charges, taxes, and fees, to include early termination fees for Promotional Services, in relation to this Agreement.
- Payment Terms. Customer agrees to pay all monthly fees and installation charges, including applicable franchise fees, taxes, customer service fees, late fees, collection fees, and Metro District Fees or HOA fees when they apply to receive StratusIQ services at the customer premises. Monthly fees will be billed one month in advance. If payment is not received by the due date, late fees and collection charges may be assessed, and the Services may be disconnected and a disconnect fee assessed. If StratusIQ must disconnect Customer Services due to non-payment, Customer will be required to pay a reconnect fee and all past due charges before Services are reconnected.
- For any inquiries, complaints or notices required under this Agreement, Customer should contact StratusIQ customer service department during normal business hours at 719-573-5343, or via email at email@example.com, or in writing at 555 Hathaway Drive, Colorado Springs, CO 80915.
- All equipment provided by StratusIQ to Customer for the reception of Services, including any cables used to connect the equipment to power sources or to connect to the Customer’s owned equipment, (“Equipment”), shall be and remain the sole property of StratusIQ. Customer agrees not to sell, loan, abuse, tamper with, repair, alter or damage the Equipment, and further agrees not to move, disturb, or change the location of any of the Equipment from the Service Premises. Any connection to, relocation of, or use of the Equipment or reception of Services except as allowed by this Agreement, is a violation of federal and/or state law, subject to fine or imprisonment or both, and StratusIQ has the right to impose liquidated damages in an amount equal to three times the normal service charge for the period of such unauthorized use together with all collection, court, and attorney’s fees incurred thereby. If Service premises are leased by Customer or are under the control of a Homeowner’s Association or other such entity (“HOA”), it is Customer’s sole responsibility to ensure that the placement of StratusIQ’s Equipment is within any guidelines set by Customer’s Landlord or HOA.
Relocation of Equipment, which shall be done only by StratusIQ personnel, shall be subject to a charge by StratusIQ. Upon termination of this Agreement, Customer agrees to return all Equipment to StratusIQ during normal business hours to end the service charges, or promptly grant StratusIQ all access necessary to remove the Equipment from the Service Premises. Failure by StratusIQ to remove the equipment shall not be deemed abandonment by StratusIQ. In the event that the Equipment supplied by StratusIQ is not returned to StratusIQ for any reason, whether due to Customer acts or accidents, theft, loss, fire, casualty or other causes beyond Customer’s control, Customers shall forfeit any deposit made and shall pay StratusIQ up to the replacement value of the equipment not returned and additional costs unreturned equipment including attorneys’ fees, cost of collection and court costs, as may result to StratusIQ. Customer further agrees to pay StratusIQ additional charges in the event the Equipment is repaired or replaced due to the Customer’s acts or omissions. By signing this Agreement Customer authorizes StratusIQ to charge replacement value or repair cost, as applicable, to any credit card or debit card number Customer provided to StratusIQ.
