3 Information we give you
3.1 By law, the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 say that We must give You certain key information before a legally binding contract between You and Us is made (see the summary box below). We will give You this information in a clear and understandable way. Typically, Our representative will give You this information on paper when at Your Home before You purchase the Services from Us. However, if You and We conclude the Contract via email, We will set this information out in Our acknowledgement email (see Clause 4.8 below). Some of this information is likely to be obvious from the context. Some of this information is also set out in these Terms and Conditions, such as information on Our complaint handling policy (see Clause 18.3).
Information We will give You
|We will give You information on:
(a) the main characteristics of the Services You want to purchase from Us
(b) who We are, where We are based and how You can contact Us
(c) the total price of the Services, including any taxes (or where this cannot reasonably be worked out in advance, the manner in which We will work out the price)
(d) the arrangements for payment and carrying out of the Services and the time by which We will carry out the Services
(e) our complaint handling policy
(f) how long the contract is for and how to end it
3.2 The key information We give You by law forms part of the Contract (as though it is set out in in the Contract).
3.3 If We have to change any key information once a legally binding contract between You and Us is made, then We will follow the process set out in Clause 19.6.
4 placing an order
4.1 This Clause 4 sets out how a legally binding contract will be formed between You and Us. A legally binding contract may be formed either:
(a) at Your Home (at the time You and We have arranged for Us to attend Your Home to undertake the Survey, install the GN Equipment and activate the Services); or
(b) via email (if We have sent You a copy of Our order form and You have returned it to Us in advance of Us visiting Your Home).
4.2 If You are under the age of 18 years old, You may not purchase any Services from Us.
4.3 Any quotation given by Us before You place an order for the Services is not a binding offer by Us to supply such Services.
Completing the Order Form
4.4 To purchase any of the Services from Us You will need to fill in and then sign an order form specifying the Services which You require from Us (the “Order Form“).
4.5 You should check the Order Form carefully before signing it. In particular, You must ensure that You have filled in Your personal details on the Order Form correctly (especially Your email address, Your residential address and the Services which You require) otherwise We will not be able to confirm Your order or provide the Services to You. If You need to correct any errors, You can do so by completing a new Order Form (please contact Us using Our contact details set out in Clause 1.3 above if You need Us to send You a replacement Order Form).
4.6 We will only accept Your order when:
(a) We send You a copy of the counter-signed Order Form via email (see Clauses 4.7 to 4.10 below); or
(b) Our representative counter-signs the Order Form at Your Home (see Clauses 4.11 to 4.12 below).
At this point, a legally binding contract will be in place between You and Us.
Acceptance of an Order – by email
4.7 Before We attend Your Home to carry out a Survey, We require You to sign and return the Order Form to Us by e-mail.
4.8 Once You have submitted a completed and signed Order Form to Us, We will acknowledge it by email. This does not mean that We have accepted Your order.
4.9 We will contact You if Your order has not been accepted. This will usually be because:
(a) Your Home is outside Our service area or We are unable to activate the Services on Your line or at Your Home for any reason;
(b) We cannot perform the Services (this may be because, for example, We have a shortage of staff);
(c) Your equipment does not meet Our minimum requirements for Internet access;
(d) You are not allowed to purchase the Services from Us;
(e) We are not allowed to sell the Services to You;
(f) There has been a mistake on the pricing or description of the Services; or
(g) We cannot carry out the installation of the GN Equipment or provide a connection to the Services for any other reason.
4.10 We will only accept Your order when We confirm this by sending You a copy of the counter-signed Order Form, which We will do via email. At this point a legally binding contract will be in place between You and Us.
Acceptance of an Order – at Your Home
4.11 When Our representative visits Your Home to undertake the Survey and, if possible, install the GN Equipment and activate the Services, Our representative will either:
(a) accept Your order by counter-signing the Order Form; or
(b) inform You that We cannot accept Your order. This will usually be because of the reasons stated in Clause 4.9 above.
4.12 As stated in Clause 4.6 above, if Our representative counter-signs the Order Form, a legally binding contract will be in place between You and Us.
5 When the contract and the Services start
5.1 The Contract begins on the date that We have confirmed that We have accepted Your order by counter-signing the Order Form (as set out in Clause 4 above).
5.2 The Contract will continue until it is terminated by either You or Us as set out in Clauses 16 and 17 of these Terms and Conditions.
5.3 The Services will start on the date that We activate them. We will activate the Services on the date the GN Equipment has been successfully installed at Your Home.
5.4 You are required to purchase the Services (and We will provide the Services) for the Committed Term stated in the Order Form. The initial Committed Term starts on the date We activate the Services.
5.5 At the end of the Committed Term, the Contract will continue until it is cancelled by either You and/or Us by giving to the other not less than 30 days’ notice in accordance with Clause 17.1.
6 PROVISION OF THE SERVICES
6.1 We provide the following services:
(a) Internet Access Services: We provide a high-speed Internet access service, in a range of options, which is delivered over the connection We provide to You. The option that You have selected is set out in the Order Form;
(b) Voice Services: We provide a voice IP telephony service, the details of which are set out in the Order Form; and
(c) Helpdesk: We provide a helpdesk service to all of Our customers. In the event You have any questions or queries over the administration of the Services (for example, queries over Your bills) or if You require any support and maintenance in respect of the GN Equipment and Services, You can contact Us using Our contact details set out in Clause 1.3 above.
6.2 We will:
(a) provide You with Services which comply with Your legal rights;
(b) perform the Services:
(i) in accordance with these Terms and Conditions;
(ii) with the reasonable skill and care of a competent telecommunications service provider; and
(iii) within a reasonable time if You and We haven’t fixed a time for the Services to be carried out; and
(c) manage the GN Network 24 hours a day, 7 days per week.
6.3 In respect of the Voice Services:
(a) We will provide access to 112 and 999 services free of charge;
(b) You acknowledge and accept that Your ability to make and receive calls (including calls to 112 and 999 services) is dependent on electricity power and access to the Internet. You therefore need to keep Your broadband router plugged in and switched on at all times in order to make and receive calls. In the event there is a loss or failure of power or an Internet connection, You will be unable to make or receive calls (and that includes calls to the emergency services whether on 112 or 999 or otherwise). We therefore recommend that You have alternative measures in place (for example, ensuring Your mobile phone is fully charged and accessible to make and receive calls to and from the emergency services should the need arise).
(c) You acknowledge and accept that in respect of the Voice Services:
(i) We will give Your name, address and telephone number to the emergency services prior to activation of the Services; and
(ii) You must tell Us if Your personal details change so that We can update the records held about You by the emergency services.
6.4 We must carry out the Services by the time or within the period which You and We agree (in writing). If You and We have agreed no time or period, this will be within a reasonable time.
6.5 We will guarantee Your speed of access to the Internet as stated in the Order Form, but cannot guarantee the actual performance of the Internet.
6.6 We may from time to time:
(a) change the technical specification of the Services and/or the codes or numbers used by Us for the provision of the Service for operational reasons, provided that any change to the technical specification does not materially affect the performance of the Services;
(b) upgrade and update the GN Equipment and the Services;
(c) issue instructions to You that We believe are necessary for reasons of health, safety or the quality of the Services, provided by Us to You or any of Our other customers and You must comply with such instructions; and
(d) temporarily suspend the Services because of an emergency or to undertake maintenance or implement improvements to the Services. We will use reasonable endeavours to keep the period of any temporary suspension to a minimum and will restore the Services as soon as possible after the event giving rise to the temporary suspension.
Where any of the actions listed in this Clause 6.6 are necessary, We will give You as much advance notice as possible. Failure to provide such notice shall not prevent Us from exercising Our rights set out in this Clause 6.6 or deemed to be a breach by Us of Our Contract with You.
6.7 With the exception of the GN Equipment, You are responsible for providing suitable computer hardware, software and telecommunications equipment and related services necessary to access and use the Services.
7 OUR EQUIPMENT
7.1 We will provide You with the GN Equipment for the duration of the Contract. The GN Equipment will need to be installed by Us at Your Home to enable Us to provide the Services.
7.2 Our provisioning team will contact You to arrange the date of installation (if installation does not happen on the date We counter-sign the Order Form).
7.3 Once We have installed the GN Equipment at Your Home, You are responsible for any loss or damage to the GN Equipment (however that loss or damage occurs). That means:
(a) We may charge You for any loss or damage to the GN Equipment; and
(b) You must:
(i) follow the instructions which are provided with the GN Equipment (including the manufacturer’s instructions and any instructions which We give to You);
(ii) store the GN Equipment in a proper manner and in conditions which adequately protect and preserve the GN Equipment;
(iii) ensure that the GN Equipment is not tampered with in any way whether by You, any members of Your household or any third party who is not authorised by Us (including dissembling it, adding to or modifying it);

(v) keep the GN Equipment in Your Home. You must not sell, charge, pledge, mortgage or otherwise dispose of the GN Equipment or any part of it. You must not part with possession of the GN Equipment or any part of it; and
(vi) not remove any label or identification on the GN Equipment which confirms that it belongs to Us.
7.4 We recommend You check Your Home contents insurance to ensure the GN Equipment is covered by it.
7.5 You are not responsible for any loss or damage to the GN Equipment which is due to fair wear and tear or which is caused by Us or those working for Us.
7.6 The GN Equipment will be Our property at all times (even though it is located at Your Home and You are responsible for any loss or damage to it). We may need to alter or replace the GN Equipment from time to time. To do so, We will need reasonable access to Your Home (and the provisions of Clause 9 will apply).
7.7 You must return the GN Equipment to Us:
(a) if You or We end the Contract; or
(b) if We agree to replace or upgrade the GN Equipment.
In each of these circumstances, We will tell You how You can return the GN Equipment to Us. You must return the GN Equipment to Us or make it available for Us to collect within 30 days of You or Us ending the Contract or You receiving a replacement or upgrade from Us. If We request that You return the GN Equipment to Us, We will send You an addressed and pre-paid envelope for this purpose. We recommend that You request and retain proof of postage.
7.8 If You do not return the GN Equipment to Us within 30 days, We may charge You for the replacement cost of the GN Equipment and/or any reasonable costs We incur in recovering the GN Equipment. These costs are set out on the Order Form (and available to view on the Website).

(b) We are not responsible or liable for any loss or damage arising from the use of Your equipment with the GN Equipment.
8.2 When We activate the Services, Your equipment will automatically accept certain software. You may only use such software in executable code form and solely in conjunction with Your equipment.

If the Contract is terminated for any reason the IP address will revert to Us and You will not use the IP address.

9.6 We are under no obligation to attend Your Home:
(a) outside the hours of 09.00 and 18.00 on Mondays to Fridays;

|Confirmation to start work early:
The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 say that in most cases, you can cancel the contract within 14 days. This may happen because you change your mind.
By signing this written confirmation and giving it to our representative, you agree that, on your request, we can start to carry out the services during the 14–day cancellation period.
You still have a right to change your mind and cancel the contract during the 14–day cancellation period, however, we will charge you for the cost of the services carried out by us until the time when you tell us that you want to cancel the contract. The amount we charge you will be in proportion to what we have carried out, in comparison with the full coverage of this contract.
You acknowledge, however, that you will lose the right to change your mind and cancel the contract during the 14–day cancellation period once the services have been fully carried out by us. If this happens, we will charge you for the full cost of the services carried out by us.
