Authorization

Customer authorizes KMF, its employees, agents and independent contractors (“Authorized Parties”), to enter onto the Property to install and maintain any equipment and wiring necessary for Customer to receive the Services (collectively, “Permitted Equipment”). Customer represents and warrants to KMF that Customer has full authority to enter into this Agreement, without obtaining approval of any other person, and acknowledges that KMF is relying upon such representation and warranty to proceed with installation of any required Permitted Equipment. Customer agrees to indemnify KMF for any liability arising out of or in any way connected to acts reasonably performed by KMF in reliance on Customer’s representations of authority. Additionally, in the event that KMF arrives on location for the installation of the Permitted Equipment, or activation of the Services, and the Customer does not or did not have the authority to authorize the installation, resulting in KMF having to remove equipment, relocate its equipment or reschedule the installation, Customer may be subject to a technician roll-out charge of ONE HUNDRED SEVENTY DOLLARS ($170.00).

The Customer agrees to pay the monthly fee indicated above (“Monthly Recurring Fee”) for each month of Service. All payments are due 20 days after invoice date when paying by check or due upon receipt if paying by credit card.

All accounts shut off for non-payment or suspended outside of Agreement terms, are subject to a minimum service fee $20.00 per month, or prorated amount thereof, and may be subject to a reactivation fee of $25.00.

Payment

Installation fees and first month’s service fees are due once the Services are activated. Payment may be made by credit card or debit card. Enterprise customers may request to pay via check with a Net 20 term. Recurring monthly payments will be automatically debited monthly using the debit card or credit card on file.

  • Credit/Debit Card Authorization; Billing Customer authorizes KMF to charge Customer’s credit card or debit card for the Services, and all charges due to KMF under the Agreement.

Equipment Recovery

Upon termination of a Service for any reason, KMF or its representative will contact Customer to schedule a mutually acceptable time and date for retrieval of KMF Equipment located on Customer’s premises. Alternatively, KMF may request that Customer package KMF Equipment and return it to a location identified by KMF. If Customer does not provide KMF with access to its premises to allow KMF to recover the KMF Equipment within thirty (30) days following KMF’s contact, or if Customer does not ship the KMF Equipment to KMF within the thirty (30) days, then Customer is responsible to pay the market value replacement cost of such equipment. Upon Termination of a Managed Service, Customer is responsible to return the Managed Service equipment to Kingsburg Media Foundation 2030 Mariposa St. Kingsburg, CA 93631. If the Customer chooses to ship, use the same address as noted in this section; please package the equipment with care to reduce the potential for equipment damage. If the Managed Service equipment is received in damaged condition, or not received, Customer will be billed and is responsible to pay market value replacement cost for the Managed Service item(s).

Moving or Transferring Service

If Customer moves to a location outside of the KMF coverage area Equipment Recovery rules will apply. In the event Customer moves locations within KMF’s coverage area, Customer may be subject to a ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100.00) fee for KMF technicians to transfer Services to the new location.

Filtering

In the case of excessive bandwidth usage by peer-to-peer file sharing programs, compromised file servers or abusive packets originating from Customer’s connection, KMF reserves the right to throttle or shape Customer’s traffic to allow fair network conditions for its customers. All customers should realize this is in the best interest of business class connectivity.

Security

Customers are required to have a properly configured and installed router between our network and their private network.

Failure to comply will result in a connection block until such device is properly configured.
