911 Addendum

The following list of 911 limitations which may be associated with the Goods purchased, installed and maintained by ICS LLC is critical information that needs to be understood by both prospective and in-service customers:

The Goods need high speed internet and/or phone service to work, so if the Internet or phone service is down the Goods will not work.

The Goods need power to work, so your communications system (including the ability to dial 911) may be unavailable during a power failure, broadband Internet or phone service outage.

The Goods may have certain inherent limitations as compared with traditional Enhanced or E911.

When you dial 911 using the Goods, you may be connected to an intermediate operator. This operator will ask that you to provide your location and will then transfer you to the emergency services agency that serves the area you have identified.

When calling for emergency help, you must be prepared to provide your location and call-back number with the operator.

If you call 911, stay on the line until instructed to hang up; call back if you get disconnected.

You must ensure that you understand the 911 limitations of your VoIP service and IP phone systems, and that other potential users are made aware of these limitations.

How does VoIP 911 dialing work?
At present, VoIP 911 services are similar to using 911 service via a cell phone which does not have location identification technology installed. When you dial 911 you will be connected to a PSAP (Public Service Access Provider). They will ask which service you require, Fire, Police, or Ambulance. Then they will ask you to provide them with you location, such as house number, street address, city etc. They do this because you could be calling from anywhere you have access to a highspeed Internet connection.

Once you have provided the information the PSAP will connect and dispatch the emergency services you require.

Circumstances in Which 911 Service Would or Would Not be Available:

911 dialing will not function in the following circumstances:

Power Failure or Disruption – should there be a power failure or disruption, ALL Service and 911 dialing will stop operating until power is restored. The Customer may need to reset or reconfigure equipment prior to using the Service or 911 dialing.

Broadband Service / ISP Outage or Termination / Suspension or Termination by broadband service provider – service outages or suspension or termination of service by your broadband provider and/or ISP will prevent ALL Service including 911 dialing.

Service Outage Due to Suspension of Your Account – service outages due to suspension of your account as a result of billing issues will prevent ALL Service, including 911 dialing.

Other Service Outages – any other service outage for ANY reason will prevent ALL Service, including 911 dialing. Such outages may occur for a variety of reasons, including, but not limited, to those reasons described elsewhere in this Agreement.

THE NATURE OF VOIP 911 SERVICE ACCESSIBLE THROUGH SELLER’S GOODS AND CONDITIONS ON USE:

Possibility of Network Congestion and/or Reduced Speed for Routing
Due to the technical constraints on the manner in which it is possible to provide 911 dialing at this time, there is a greater possibility of network congestion and/or reduced speed in the routing of a 911 communication made using your Goods as compared to traditional 911 dialing over traditional public telephone networks. Therefore, 911 calls may take longer to reach PSAPs or local emergency service providers than in the case of traditional 911 calls.

Automated Number Identification
One or more telephone companies route 911 traffic to an operator who routes the call to the correct PSAP. Therefore at this time it is not possible for the PSAP and the local emergency personnel to identify your phone number when you dial 911, in order to call you back if your call is unable to be completed, is dropped or disconnected, if you are unable to speak to tell them your phone number and/or if the Service stops operating for any reason, including without limitation, those listed elsewhere in this page.

Automated Location Identification
At this time it is not possible to transmit identification of your physical address to the operator who routes the call to the PSAP and local emergency personnel for your area when you dial 911. You will therefore need to state your location, as the operator will NOT have this information. Once you are transferred to the PSAP and local emergency personnel, you will need to state the nature of your emergency promptly and clearly, including your location, as the PSAP and local emergency personnel will NOT have this information. The operator and/or PSAP and local emergency personnel will not be able to find your location if your 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 stops operating for any reason, including without limitation, those listed elsewhere in this page.

MATERIAL DIFFERENCES BETWEEN VOIP 911 SERVICE ACCESSIBLE THROUGH SELLER’S GOODS AND TRADITIONAL E911 SERVICE:

Non-Availability of Traditional 911 or E-911 Dialing Service
The 911 service available by using the Goods differs in a number of important ways (some, but not necessarily all, of which are described in this Addendum) from 911 or E911 emergency services as provided by traditional local exchange carriers. You acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agree to the terms and conditions regarding VoIP 911 service available through use of Seller’s Goods.

Routing of 911 Calls
When you dial 911, your call is routed from the network of your broadband provider to an operator, who then asks for your physical location and phone number. The operator then routes your call to the Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) designated for the physical location that you provided. The call may be routed to the general telephone number for the PSAP or local emergency service provider (which may not be answered outside business hours), rather than traditional 911 dispatcher(s). 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 traditional 911 calls. Seller disclaims any and all liability or responsibility in the event that the information or routing is incorrect to the general telephone number for the local emergency service provider.

Failure to Designate the Correct Physical Address When Making a 911 Call
Failure to provide the current and correct physical address and location of your Goods to the operator will result in any 911 communication you may make being routed to the incorrect local emergency service provider. The address

information that you provide must be the actual physical street address where you are located, not a post office box, mail drop or similar address.

MEASURES THAT SHOULD BE TAKEN BY A 911 CALLER AS A RESULT OF SUCH DIFFERENCES:

Alternative 911 Arrangements
You acknowledge that Seller is neither a telecommunications nor information services provider and therefore does not offer primary line or lifeline services. You should always have an alternative means of accessing traditional E911 services.

BUYER’S OBLIGATION TO INFORM ALL USERS AND POTENTIAL USERS OF THE GOODS OF THE NATURE AND LIMITATIONS OF VOIP 911 SERVICE:

Other Users
You agree to inform any employees, agents, household residents, guests and other third persons who may be present at the physical location where you use the Goods, of the non-availability of traditional 911 or E911 dialing from Seller’s Goods, and of the important differences and limitations of VoIP 911 described in this addendum as compared with traditional 911 or E911 dialing.

APPLICABLE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY:

Limitation of Liability and Indemnification
Neither Seller nor its directors, officers, employees affiliates and agents will be held liable for any claim, damage, or loss, and you hereby waive any and all such claims or causes of action, arising from or relating to any outage and/or inability to dial 911 from your line or to access emergency service personnel unless it is proven that the act or omission proximately causing the claim, damage, or loss constitutes gross negligence or intentional misconduct on the part of Seller.

You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Seller, its officers, directors, employees, affiliates and agents and any other service provider who furnishes services to you or to Seller in connection with the Service, from any and all claims, losses, damages, fines, penalties, costs and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable legal fees and expenses) by, or on behalf of you or any third party or user of your Service relating to the absence, failure or outage, including 911 dialing and/or inability of you or any third person or party or user of the Goods to be able to dial 911 or to access emergency service personnel, and any misroutes of 911 calls, including but not limited to your provision to Seller of incorrect information in connection therewith.
