YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHTS YOU MAY HAVE UNDER CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE §1542, WHICH SAYS THAT: A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR, OR ANY OTHER SIMILAR APPLICABLE STATUTE OR LAW OF ANY OTHER JURISDICTION.
Limitation of liability
THE VOLTA PARTIES WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY LOST PROFITS OR CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, INDIRECT, OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES RELATING TO, ARISING OUT OF, OR IN ANY WAY IN CONNECTION WITH OUR TERMS, US, OR OUR SERVICES, EVEN IF THE VOLTA PARTIES HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. OUR AGGREGATE LIABILITY RELATING TO, ARISING OUT OF, OR IN ANY WAY IN CONNECTION WITH OUR TERMS, US, OR OUR SERVICES WILL NOT EXCEED THE GREATER OF ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100) OR THE AMOUNT YOU HAVE PAID US IN THE PAST TWELVE MONTHS. THE FOREGOING DISCLAIMER OF CERTAIN DAMAGES AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY WILL APPLY TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. THE LAWS OF SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS MAY NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF CERTAIN DAMAGES, SO SOME OR ALL OF THE EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS SET FORTH ABOVE MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY IN OUR TERMS, IN SUCH CASES, THE LIABILITY OF THE VOLTA PARTIES WILL BE LIMITED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the VOLTA PARTIES from and against all liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses of any kind (including reasonable legal fees and costs) relating to, arising out of, or in any way in connection with any of the following: (a) your access to or use of our Services, including information provided in connection therewith; (b) your breach or alleged breach of our Terms; or (c) any misrepresentation made by you. You will cooperate as fully as required by us in the defense or settlement of any Claim.
Forum and Venue. If you are a Volta user located in the United States or Canada, the “Special Arbitration Provision for United States or Canada Users” section below applies to you. Please also read that section carefully and completely. If you are not subject to the “Special Arbitration Provision for United States or Canada Users” section below, you agree that you and Volta will resolve any Claim relating to, arising out of, or in any way in connection with our Terms, us, or our Services (each, a “Dispute,” and together, “Disputes”) exclusively in the United States State Courts for the state of Delaware, and you agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purpose of litigating all such Disputes. Without prejudice to the foregoing, you agree that, in our sole discretion, we may elect to resolve any Dispute we have with you in any competent court in the country in which you reside that has jurisdiction over the Dispute.
Governing Law. The laws of the State of Delaware govern our Terms, as well as any Disputes, whether in court or arbitration, which might arise between Volta and you, without regard to conflict of law provisions.
Availability of our services
Availability of Our Services. Our Services may be interrupted for any reason, including but not limited to maintenance, repairs, upgrades, or network or equipment failures. We may discontinue some or all of our Services, including certain features and the support for certain devices and platforms, at any time and without any warning. Events beyond our control may affect our Services, such as events in nature and other force majeure events.
Cancellation, Returns, and Refunds Policy
Refunds. Volta Wireless Services are prepaid and will not be refunded for any reason, whether you choose to or are able to make use of those services or not for any reason. Volta shall not be liable for any action or inaction by you related to your use or non-use of our Services.
Phones, SIM cards, and other devices (“Device”) may be returned to Volta Wireless for a full refund of any amount paid within the lesser of 7 days from receipt of the Device in question or 10 days from the date that item was shipped to you. Any Services, shipping fees, taxes or other fees paid together with the purchase price of the Device are not refundable.
Again, Volta Wireless Services are prepaid and will not be refunded for any reason.
Subscription Changes. You may change your subscription at any time. If you change your subscription, Volta is under no obligation to refund any money to you for any previously purchased subscription.
If you purchase a device with a payment plan, and the offer associated with that payment plan requires you to purchase a specific subscription plan, then you agree that Volta has the right to change any existing subscription to the subscription plan required by the device payment plan offer without any further notification to you of such a change.
Cancellation. You may cancel your subscription to Volta Wireless at any time for any reason or for no reason at all. After you cancel your subscription, you should continue to have access to your Volta Wireless services until the current billing period for which you have already paid will end. If you cancel before the end of the agreed period identified in your specific subscription plan (i.e. – 3 years, 2 years, one month, 24 months, or 36 months), then at the time of cancellation, you will be obligated to immediately pay off any remaining balance for your agreed subscription period. In other words, if you sign up for a 2 year subscription, paid monthly, and then cancel that subscription before the end of 24 months, then at the time of cancellation you will be required to pay Volta Wireless immediately, an amount equal to the remaining number of months in your agreement multiplied times the monthly fee for services, plus any applicable taxes and fees that Volta Wireless would have charged had you continued the subscription for the full period of the agreement and paid for it monthly.
If you purchase a Device, such as a phone, based on a payment plan and choose to cancel that plan for any reason, then you will be obligated to immediately pay Volta any remaining amounts owed for the life of that agreement, plus any taxes and fees that Volta would have charged, had you continued the payment plan for full period agreed in that plan, whether you return the Device to Volta or not. The only exception to this clause is in the event that you return the Device for a full refund within 7 days of receiving the device. In that case, you will be refunded the purchase price for the Device without any Service fees, shipping, taxes or other fees paid at the time of purchase of the Device.
If you purchase a Device, such as a phone, based on a monthly payment plan, and that offer requires that you maintain a specific subscription level for minimum period of time (i.e. – if you purchase a Volta Private Phone for $19.99 per month for 24 months and are required by that offer to maintain service for 24 months at a rate of $49.99 per month), then in the event that you end your agreement either for the device or for the service or both before the end of that period, you will be obligated to immediately pay Volta any outstanding amount on your agreement both for the Services and for the Device, as well as any taxes and fees that Volta Wireless would have normally charged had you maintained that agreement through the end of the agreed period.
Please note that once you cancel or terminate your subscription to Volta Services, Volta is under no obligation to provide you any additional customer service or support with any Volta Services or any Device you may have purchased from Volta. This includes any updates to the app, or phone operating system, or similar.
No shipping fees, taxes or other fees shall ever be refundable for any reason.
We may modify, suspend, cancel, or terminate your access to or use of our Services at any time for any reason or for no reason at all, without any warning of any kind.. The paid subscription to Volta Wireless providing you access to the Services is based on an auto-renewal basis. As such, your subscription will automatically renew upon the end of your applicable subscription period (e.g., monthly basis, annual basis, etc.) corresponding to the term of your subscription unless cancelled in accordance with the terms of your subscription. If your subscription renewal begins on a day not contained in a given month, then we will charge you on the last day of such month. You acknowledge and agree that the timing of when you are billed and the amount billed may vary due to free trials and other promotional offers, credit applied to your account, and changes in your subscription, and you hereby authorize us to charge you for the corresponding amounts. You are solely responsible for ensuring that your billing and payment information is correct to prevent your subscription from being cancelled. If we cannot charge your payment method for any reason (such as expiration or insufficient funds), and you have not cancelled your subscription, you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts, and we will attempt to charge the payment method as you may update your payment method information. This may result in a change to the start of your next subscription period and may change the date on which you are billed for each period. We reserve the right to cancel your subscription if we are unable to successfully charge your payment method to renew your subscription. When your subscription ends, whether through cancellation or any other reason, you will lose access to the Volta Services that require a subscription. If we offer you a promotion or a promotional price for your subscription, the specific terms of the promotion will be disclosed or made available to you when you select your subscription plan. Sometimes (not always), you will be required to agree to the Additional Terms that will be provided to you and describe the particular promotion for your selected subscription plan. If no Additional Terms will be provided at the time of purchase, then these Terms of Service shall be in force. In the case of promotional pricing, promotional pricing is offered for a period of time with a beginning and end that shall be clearly stated in that promotion. Promotional pricing is generally offered for only one stated time period (i.e. – a promotional price for an annual subscription will apply only to the first year of an annual subscription). After your promotion period ends, we will begin billing you for your subscription at the regular price after the promotion ends unless you cancel your subscription prior to the end of the promotion. We reserve the right to change, modify or vary the price, package and features of the Volta Wireless subscription plans that we make available from time to time. If we change or modify the price and package of such subscription plans, we may provide you with advanced notice of the applicable changes or modifications. You may discontinue to use the Volta Services offered under a subscription plan and request the cancellation of your subscription to Volta Wireless and access to Volta Services at any time. We will not be liable or reimbursing you for the cancellation of your Volta Wireless subscription. You may choose to terminate Services at any time by contacting our Customer Service team through the self-service tool on our website or through the Contact Support link in our mobile app. By cancelling your subscription, your account will automatically close at the end of your current billing period. Upon cancellation of your subscription, you may continue to use the applicable Volta Services through the remainder of your subscription term, as well as any content that you previously created or reproduced through use of such Volta Services as of the date of cancellation of your subscription, provided that such use must be in compliance with these Terms. You hereby agree that if you will cancel your subscription before the end of the agreed subscription period as described above, then all applicable charges as described above will be immediately charged to your payment method. Refunds: Volta Wireless Services are pre-paid. There will be no refunds or credits for suspension or termination of your subscription to Volta Services or your account for any reason.
The following provisions of these Terms will survive any termination of your relationship with Volta, no matter the reason of said termination: “Licenses,” “Disclaimers,” “Limitation of Liability,” “Indemnification,” “Dispute Resolution,” “Availability of our Services,” “Cancellation, Returns, and Refunds”, “Other,” and “Special Arbitration Provision for United States or Canada Users.”
Updates To Our Terms
We may amend or update our Terms. We may provide you notice of amendments to these Terms, as appropriate, but are under no obligation to notify you of any changes or updates. It is your responsibility to regularly review our Terms. We will update the “Last Modified” date at the top of these Terms each time they are amended. Your continued use of our Services confirms your acceptance of our Terms, as amended. If you do not agree to our Terms, as amended, you must stop using our Services. Please review our Terms from time to time.
Special arbitration provision for United States or Canada users
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT CONTAINS ADDITIONAL PROVISIONS APPLICABLE ONLY TO OUR UNITED STATES AND CANADA USERS. IF YOU ARE A VOLTA USER LOCATED IN THE UNITED STATES OR CANADA, IT REQUIRES YOU TO SUBMIT TO BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION OF ALL DISPUTES, EXCEPT FOR THOSE THAT INVOLVE INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY DISPUTES AND EXCEPT THOSE THAT CAN BE BROUGHT IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT. THIS MEANS YOU ARE WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO HAVE SUCH DISPUTES RESOLVED IN COURT BY A JUDGE OR JURY. THIS SECTION ALSO LIMITS THE TIME YOU HAVE TO START AN ARBITRATION OR, IF PERMISSIBLE, A COURT ACTION. FINALLY, THIS SECTION WAIVES YOUR RIGHT TO HAVE YOUR DISPUTE HEARD AND RESOLVED AS A CLASS ACTION, CLASS ARBITRATION, OR A REPRESENTATIVE ACTION.
“Excluded Dispute” means any Dispute relating to the enforcement or infringement of your or our intellectual property rights (such as copyrights, trademarks, domains, logos, trade dress, trade secrets, and patents). For clarity and notwithstanding the foregoing, those Disputes relating to, arising out of, or in any way in connection with your rights of privacy and publicity are not Excluded Disputes.
Federal Arbitration Act. The United States Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this “Special Arbitration Provision for United States or Canada Users” section, including any question whether a Dispute between Volta and you is subject to arbitration.
Agreement to Arbitrate for Volta Users Located in the United States or Canada. For Volta users located in the United States or Canada, Volta and you each agree to waive the right to a trial by judge or jury for all Disputes, except for the Excluded Disputes. Volta and you agree that all Disputes (except for the Excluded Disputes), including those relating to, arising out of, or in any way in connection with your rights of privacy and publicity, will be resolved through final and binding arbitration. Volta and you agree not to combine a Dispute that is subject to arbitration under our Terms with a Dispute that is not eligible for arbitration under our Terms.
The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its Commercial Arbitration Rules in effect at the time the arbitration is started, including the Optional Rules for Emergency Measures of Protection and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (together, the “AAA Rules”). The arbitration will be presided over by a single arbitrator selected in accordance with the AAA Rules. The AAA Rules, information regarding initiating a Dispute, and a description of the arbitration process are available at www.adr.org. The arbitrator will decide whether a Dispute can be arbitrated. The location of the arbitration and the allocation of fees and costs for such arbitration shall be determined in accordance with the AAA Rules. Notwithstanding the AAA Rules, we will reimburse you for all the AAA administrative fees in Disputes that are subject to the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes, unless the arbitrator determines that a Dispute was filed for purposes of harassment or is patently frivolous.
Opt-Out Procedure. You may opt out of this agreement to arbitrate. If you do so, neither we nor you can require the other to participate in an arbitration proceeding. To opt out, you must notify us in writing postmarked within 30 days of the later of: (i) the date that you first accepted our Terms; and (ii) the date you became subject to this arbitration provision. You must use this address to opt-out:
c/o Sinclair Telecommunications LLC
150 E 1st Ave, Suite 206
Salt Lake City UT 84103
United States of America
You must include: (1) your name and residence address; (2) the mobile phone number and email address associated with your account; and (3) a clear statement that you want to opt out of our Terms’ agreement to arbitrate.
Small Claims Court. As an alternative to arbitration, if permitted by your local “small claims” court’s rules, you may bring your Dispute in your local “small claims” court, as long as the matter advances on an individual (non-class) basis.
Time Limit to Start Arbitration. We and you agree that for any Dispute (except for the Excluded Disputes) we and you must commence an arbitration proceeding within one year after the Dispute first arose; otherwise, such Dispute is permanently barred. This means that if we or you do not commence an arbitration within one year after the Dispute first arose, then the arbitration will be dismissed because it was started too late.
No Class Actions, Class Arbitrations, or Representative Actions for Users Located in the United States or Canada. We and you each agree that if you are a Volta user located in the United States or Canada, each of we and you may bring Disputes against the other only on its or your own behalf, and not on behalf of any other person or entity, or any class of people. We and you each agree not to participate in a class action, a class-wide arbitration, Disputes brought in a private attorney general or representative capacity, or consolidated Disputes involving any other person or entity in connection with any Dispute.
Severability. If the prohibition against class actions and other Disputes brought on behalf of third parties is found to be unenforceable for a Dispute, then all of the provisions above under the caption “Special Arbitration Provision for United States or Canada Users” will be null and void as to that Dispute.
Place to File Permitted Court Actions. If you opt out of the agreement to arbitrate, if your Dispute is an Excluded Dispute, or if the arbitration agreement is found to be unenforceable, you agree to be subject to the “Forum and Venue” provisions in the “Dispute Resolution” section set forth above.
