In the event that the User does not wish to accept the application of the new Terms of Use, he may notify his wish to terminate the Contract entered into with ONOFF TELECOM. The fact that the User does not terminate the Contract will carry his unreserved acceptance of the new version of the Terms of Use.

If access to the Application and/ or services has been through a third party, separate terms of use presented by this third party may also apply to the user’s access to the Services. These conditions will also be applicable to the provision of the Services and must be respected by the User.

3. Access to and use of the Application and Services

Subscription to the Services may be made, as the case may be, directly with ONOFF TELECOM or with a third party, such as an application distribution platform.

Access to and use of the Services require (i) the use of the SIM card associated with the Operator Subscription, (ii) a terminal allowing the use of the Services (Smartphone, PDA, tablet or equivalent) and having a recent version operating system and (iii) access to the Internet network.

The operation of the Application and the Services requires the prior subscription by the User – at his own expense – of an Operator Subscription including (i) the possibility of making and receiving telephone calls and / or SMS and (ii) high-speed mobile Internet access as well as the corresponding telephone credit.

The subscription and maintenance in force of the Operator Subscription, essential for the use of the Application, are the sole responsibility of the User. The User must be equipped with a terminal allowing the use of the Application (Smartphone, PDA, tablet or equivalent) and having a recent version operating system and regularly updated. The User is solely responsible for the proper functioning of his terminals.

The User acknowledges that the effective use of the Application depends on the availability of communications and high-speed Internet services of the Operator Subscription he has subscribed to. In addition, usage limits and geographic restrictions specific to the Application may vary. Thus, the User is advised to regularly consult the Website in order to know in more detail the restrictions of use and the recent changes made to the Application.

Once the Application is installed on his terminal, the User will be able to access his User Account with the username and password that he will have defined when creating the UserAccount. His password is personal and confidential and must not be shared with any third party in order to prevent any unauthorized use of the User Account. The User is solely responsible for the confidentiality of his password.

In this case, the subscription request will be automatically refused or cancelled and the User notified by email.

During the contract, ONOFF TELECOM reserves the right to carry out and/or have carried out any additional investigation, in particular on the elements transmitted by the User and, in case of reasonable doubt about the user of the Service or the documents that have been transmitted in support of the subscription, to refuse or cancel any subscription to the Contract. In this case, the subscription request will be automatically refused or cancelled and the User notified by email.

ONOFF TELECOM reserves the right to delete at any time a User Account that does not comply with the applicable legal provisions, the rights of third parties or that does not comply with the Terms of Use. This would be the case, for example, of a User Account created on the basis of a false surname or an invalid e-mail address.

4. Description of the Services

Once the registration steps have been completed, the User may obtain from ONOFF TELECOM one or more Numbers and/or subscribe to one or more call packages and benefit from the associated features. Depending on the regulations applicable to subscribed Numbers, ONOFF TELECOM may be required to request additional information to that collected during the creation of the User Account relating to the identity or location of the User.

The assignment of a Number gives access to all linked Services. The Numbers make it possible to make and receive telephone calls and/ or, where appropriate, SMS and/or MMS to and from any person with a telephone number subject to the limitations set out in the following paragraph concerning calls to certain classes of numbers.

The Services are in no way a substitute for the primary mobile telephony service provided by the operator with whom the User has subscribed to his Operator Subscription. The User acknowledges and accepts that the Numbers do not allow calls to be made to all numbers. Consequently, calls that cannot be made from the Application (i.e. in particular but not exhaustively calls to special numbers and emergency numbers) must be made directly from the number associated with the User’s Operator Subscription.

5. Restrictions on use of the Application

The User must make normal use of the Application and the associated Services and acknowledges that ONOFF TELECOM may put in place measures to prevent any obvious misuse of the purpose of the Services.

ONOFF TELECOM will evaluate the normal use of the Services in comparison with the uses of other Users. Consumption will be considered abnormal, in that it will be considered to constitute a diversion of the purpose of the Services, if it deviates substantially from the average consumption of Users.

The User is further informed that the following uses, without this list being considered exhaustive, are considered abnormal:

    • resell or market the Application, while it is intended for the User’s personal use.
  • In addition, the User is expressly reminded that, in accordance with regulations establishing the national numbering plan and its management rules, any Number may not be used as a “secondary number” for the provision of telephone or messaging services by SMS or MMS, the subscriber of which can be reached without any restriction by any user of a telephone service to the public or sms or mms that since these services can only be used from mobile access.
  • It is also recalled that this “secondary” number may be provided by an operator different from the one that provides mobile access to the User.
  • Finally, it is recalled that a Number can only be assigned to a User habitually or temporarily residing, or justifying stable links involving a frequent and significant presence, in the territory corresponding to this Number.

12. Financial conditions

To the extent that the Application and the Services use the Operator Subscription, the User acknowledges and accepts that this use may give rise to billing of the User by his operator as part of his Operator Subscription. In particular, the use of the Application through the mobile broadband Internet access of the Operator Subscription will be deducted and / or invoiced, as the case may be, as the case may be, as part of the Operator Subscription. Calls/SMS/MMS made and received from the Application may be counted and/or invoiced, as the case may be, as part of the User’s Operator Subscription. In case of use of the Services outside the territory where the User is established, additional roaming charges may be charged by the operator with whom the User has subscribed to his Operator Subscription.

For the sake of clarity and transparency with the User, ONOFF TELECOM expressly indicates that even incoming calls (i.e. received) from the Application may, in certain cases, be invoiced as outgoing calls (i.e. issued) as part of its Operator Subscription by the operator with whom it has subscribed to its Operator Subscription and at the rate in force provided by the said operator. This system makes it possible to guarantee the User the absolute confidentiality of his calls made and received from the Application.

All rates applicable to the Services and, in particular, those applicable to Numbers, call packages and ONOFF Credits, are mentioned, regularly updated and available via the interface of the Application. The Services provided by ONOFF TELECOM are invoiced to the User in accordance with the price in force on the day of subscription of the Service concerned.

In the event of a change in the rates applicable to a Service subscribed by a User during the subscription period selected by the User, ONOFF TELECOM will inform the User at least one month before the entry into force of the modified tariff. The User may then terminate the Service concerned under the conditions defined in Article 16.

The subscription to each Number is subject to the payment of a fixed price that varies according to the subscription period selected by the User from among the predetermined durations offered to him. The Numbers are divided into several categories, each with its own price list appearing in the Application interface.

The issuance of telephone calls to fixed or mobile numbers and the sending of SMS may be subject to the purchase of ONOFF Credits. The User may purchase ONOFF Credits at the price defined in the tariff annex in force on the day of purchase.

The User acknowledges and agrees that:

  • ONOFF Credits are counted in one-minute increments and rounded up to the next;
  • ONOFF Credits have a validity period of one hundred and ninety (190) days from the date of purchase. At the end of this period, any ONOFF Credit that has not been used will be permanently lost. However, any new purchase of ONOFF Credits during this period interrupts this period. A new validity period of one hundred and ninety (190) days starts to run again from the date on which the User purchased new ONOFF Credits. This new period of validity applies to all ONOFF Credits subscribed by the User.

Any promotional offers that may be offered by ONOFF TELECOM will be subject to specific conditions that will be added to these Terms of Use with regard to the conditions that are specifically applicable to them.

13. Terms of payment – Terms of Refund

The subscription to each Number is invoiced in advance for the entire subscription period chosen by the User.

The invoicing and payment of the Services are made, as the case may be, by and with the third party with whom the subscription was subscribed and / or directly by and with ONOFF TELECOM.

When the payment is made to a third party, it is made according to the contractual conditions binding the User to this third party.

When the payment is made directly to ONOFF TELECOM, it is made according to one of the payment methods offered by ONOFF TELECOM.

In case of dispute of the invoiced sums, the User must send his request for reimbursement to the company with which he made the payment, that is to say, as the case may be, the third party or ONOFF TELECOM. The request for reimbursement must be made, as the case may be, in accordance with the terms defined by the conditions of sale of the third party or, when it is addressed directly to ONOFF TELECOM under the following conditions.

When the payment for the Services has been made in the hands of ONOFF TELECOM, the User will have ninety (90) days following the invoice date to contest the sums that have been invoiced to him by providing all the necessary justifications. After this period, the User will no longer be able to request any refund.

ONOFF TELECOM reserves the right to refuse any refund request if it considers (a) that the User’s request is unfounded, or (b) that the User has not complied with the Terms of Use, or (c) that the User has used the Application fraudulently or that his User Account is used fraudulently by a third party. In the latter case, the User must exercise his right of refund with his bank.

14. Changes to the Terms of Use

ONOFF TELECOM informs the User of any modification of the Terms of Use prior to their entry into force. If the User refuses that this modification applies to his current Services, he must terminate his Contract within one month of the information of the modification, under the conditions defined below in Article 15. In the absence of termination within this period, the amended Terms of Use shall automatically apply at the end of this period.

15. Effective date, duration and termination

The Agreement takes effect on the date of download of the Application by the User and will remain in force until the cumulative fulfilment of the following two conditions: (i) termination by one of the Parties of all the Services provided to the User and (ii) deletion by the User of the Application.

The User acknowledges, however, that the license, in connection with the User Content, is granted for the maximum period of protection of the intellectual property rights of the User Content, and will therefore continue after the end of the Agreement for any reason whatsoever.

Unless the Number subscribed by the User has been subscribed for a firm and non-renewable period, the subscription to the Number will automatically renew at the end of the period initially chosen by the User, unless terminated under the conditions of Article 17. The renewal of the subscription will entail invoicing and payment of the corresponding amount.

When the Number has been subscribed for a firm and non-renewable period, the User may maintain his subscription to the Number manually by connecting to the Application before the expiry of the current subscription period. This maintenance of the subscription gives rise to the extension of the Contract according to the Conditions of Use and the rates in force on the date of the manual renewal of the subscription.

The User has a period of fourteen days, from the conclusion of the Contract, to exercise his right of withdrawal, without having to justify his decision or to bear other costs than those provided for in Articles L. 221-23 to L. 221-25 of the French Consumer Code. The User who wishes to exercise his right of withdrawal informs ONOFF TELECOM of his decision to withdraw by sending, to the address [email protected] and before the expiry of the aforementioned period, the withdrawal form appearing in annex to the Conditions of Use, or any other statement, unambiguous, expressing his will to withdraw. If the subscription of the Services has been made via a third party, the User must exercise his right of withdrawal with this third party.

If the User wishes the execution of the Contract to begin before the end of the aforementioned withdrawal period, he must make the express request to ONOFF TELECOM. The User acknowledges and accepts that he has been informed of this right and that the use of the Services during the duration of the withdrawal period is equivalent to an express request to execute the Contract before the end of the withdrawal period.

In case of withdrawal, ONOFF TELECOM will refund all payments received, without undue delay and, in any case, no later than fourteen days from the day on which it was informed of the decision to withdraw. The refund will be made using the same means of payment as that used for the initial transaction, at no cost to the User.

In the event that the User exercises his right of withdrawal while the execution of the Contract has begun at his express request, before the end of the aforementioned withdrawal period, he will pay ONOFF TELECOM the amount corresponding to the Services provided until the communication of his decision to withdraw. This amount will be proportionate to the total price agreed in the Contract. In addition, ONOFF TELECOM may invoice any uses made during the withdrawal period.

If the User does not expressly request that the execution of the Contract begin before the end of the aforementioned withdrawal period, he acknowledges and accepts that the Application is unavailable for the entire duration of the withdrawal period (fourteen (14) days).

16. Termination

Each Party has the possibility to terminate the Contract at any time. To do this, the User simply cancels his number(s) directly in the Application or request the closure of his User Account directly in the Application.

It is recalled that if the Services have been subscribed through a third party, their provision is also subject to the conditions of sale of that third party, in addition to these Terms of Use. In this case, the termination of the Services must be carried out directly with this third party under the conditions defined by its conditions of sale.

The termination of a Number is made by the User in his User Account available on the interface of the Application. The termination of the Number will be effective the day after the last day of the current subscription period. In the event that the Services have been subscribed via a third party, the termination of a Number made from the User Account only entails the cessation of payments if the User has informed this third party of its termination in accordance with the conditions of sale of this third party.

Each Party may also terminate the Contract for fault of the other Party eight (8) days after the sending of a formal notice that has remained in vain, this resulting solely from the breach of the offending party. It is agreed that the following cases may result in the automatic termination of the Contract by ONOFF TELECOM:

  • if the User has violated the Terms of Use;
  • if the information entered by the User in his User Account is inaccurate;
  • if ONOFF TELECOM suspects an illegal or fraudulent use of the Application or contrary to the rights of third parties;
  • if ONOFF TELECOM suspects that the User is trying to take unfair advantage of any of ONOFF TELECOM’s policies, whatever they may be, or to misuse them.

ONOFF TELECOM may terminate its relationship with the User, at any time subject to compliance with a minimum notice period of one (1) month before the end of the commitment period.

If ONOFF TELECOM decides to no longer offer a particular Service, it may terminate the Said Service without penalty, subject to compliance with a minimum notice of one month.

Any termination of ONOFF TELECOM will be notified to the User by e-mail.

The User understands and agrees not to use a Number under the conditions defined in the General Conditions of Use entails the automatic termination of the Number as well as data relating to the use of the Number (for example: SMS, call log, voice messages, etc.).

On the effective date of termination of the Contract, it will have the following consequences:

  • All licenses and rights to use the Application will terminate;
  • The User must stop using the Application;
  • The User shall remove the Application from all hard drives, networks and storage media, and destroy all copies in his possession, or under his control;
  • ONOFF TELECOM may block access to the User Account and/ or the Application;
  • ONOFF TELECOM may delete the data associated with the User Account.

Termination of a particular Service will have the same consequences as those set forth above, which will be limited to the terminated Service only.

17. Portability

The User who wishes to transfer the use of the Number to another mobile operator must request the portability of his Number from his new operator. Number portability is possible, subject to technical eligibility. The User’s attention is drawn to the fact that an outgoing request for portability is equivalent to a request for termination of the Number and entails, at the end of the corresponding procedure, the automatic termination of the Services associated with that Number, without prejudice to the possible duration of the User’s firm commitment under the Services. ONOFF TELECOM remains in any case foreign to the contractual relations between the User and the new operator. ONOFF TELECOM cannot be held liable for fault, non-performance, failures or malfunctions attributable to the User or the new operator and which would have the effect of delaying, disrupting or preventing this porting. In these cases, ONOFF TELECOM cannot be held liable because of the interruption of service related to the porting of the Number to the new operator.

When subscribing to the Services with ONOFF TELECOM, the User may request the takeover by ONOFF TELECOM of its current mobile number. Inbound portability of a mobile number is possible, subject to technical eligibility. The mobile number in question must be associated with an active telephone line until the number is transferred. When subscribing to the Services, the User must transmit the number to be kept to ONOFF TELECOM, the desired porting date as well as all the data required by the former operator and associated with said number. The User mandates ONOFF TELECOM in order to carry out all the acts necessary for the implementation of his request for portability and in particular to terminate in his name and on his behalf the contract he holds with his former operator relating to this number. This termination will take effect with the effective transfer of the User’s number to ONOFF TELECOM.

In this context, ONOFF TELECOM informs the User of the eligibility conditions, as well as the consequences of his request: the request for number portability is equivalent to a request for termination of the User’s contract with its previous operator, without prejudice to the contractual stipulations relating to the durations of engagement. The User remains bound by the obligations that bind him to his previous operator, in particular any payment that may remain. The effective porting of the number entails the termination of the contract that binds the User with his previous operator. Portability does not entail the transfer of services from which the User benefited under the contract previously signed with its previous operator. As such, the User’s attention is drawn to the fact that the Services require the existence of an Operator Subscription in force. The User is therefore clearly informed that if his request for portability leads to the termination of the Operator Subscription, he will not be able to use the Services.

ONOFF TELECOM may refuse to comply with a request for portability in the following cases:

  • incapacity of the applicant;
  • Portability request that is incomplete or contains incorrect information;
  • non-compliance with the management rules of the national numbering plan: the request for preservation must respect the correspondence between the number that is the subject of the application and the geographical location of the applicant;
  • mobile number, subject of the portability request, inactive on the day of porting;
  • mobile number, subject of the portability request, already the subject of a portability request not yet executed.

18. Suspension

Without prejudice to the possibility of terminating the Contract, ONOFF TELECOM may suspend the Services or access to the Application of one of the Users on simple written information of the User concerned in the following cases:

  • if the User has violated the Terms of Use;
  • if the information provided for the User in his User Account is inaccurate, incomplete or if the User’s mobile number provided by the operator with whom the Operator Subscription was subscribed is no longer valid;
  • if the conditions of territoriality required for the assignment of the Number to the User are no longer met
  • if ONOFF TELECOM suspects illegal or fraudulent or abnormal use of the Application or contrary to the rights of third parties;
  • if ONOFF TELECOM suspects that the User is trying to take unfair advantage of onoff telecom’s refund policy or any other policies, or to misuse them;
  • if ONOFF TELECOM suspects that the User Account is the subject of fraudulent use by a third party.

ONOFF TELECOM is also likely to interrupt the use of the Application under certain conditions including, but not limited to, the impossibility of providing the Service, problems of external origin that make the implementation of the Service difficult or imprudent, technological progress, the need to modify the Application or the Services.

19. Warranty and Liability

ONOFF TELECOM undertakes to provide all the necessary competence and care for the provision of the Services and to implement all the necessary provisions in order to ensure the Services permanently and continuously. As such, ONOFF TELECOM has only an obligation of means.

With regard to the relevant and applicable legal provisions, the Application is provided “as is” and will be used at the User’s own risk, without any guarantee. In this sense, the User is solely responsible for the preservation, security and integrity of data, hardware and software, as well as the confidentiality of his passwords and User Account identifiers and others in the context of the use of the Services.

ONOFF TELECOM assumes no responsibility to any third party or to the User regarding the contents, the latter being solely responsible for the User Content submitted, created, displayed or published through the Application.

ONOFF TELECOM makes its best efforts to ensure the confidentiality of the information and content published through the Application.

ONOFF TELECOM does not guarantee that the Application will always be available, accessible, uninterrupted, reliable, and error-free. In addition, no warranty is offered regarding internet connections or transmissions, or the quality of calls made through the Application.

Should a third party file a complaint against ONOFF TELECOM in connection with, or as a result of (i) any breach by the User of the Terms of Use, (ii) any breach by the User of any applicable law or regulation, (iii) any violation by the User of the rights of third parties (including intellectual property rights), (iv) its User Content or (v) its complaint regarding any User Content, the User warrants to ONOFF TELECOM any damages, liabilities, losses, convictions, costs and expenses (including legal fees and other reasonable costs) that may result therefrom.

Subject to the foregoing and in accordance with applicable law, ONOFF TELECOM shall not be liable to the User, whether or not ONOFF TELECOM has been informed of the possibility of such damages or losses, for:

  • indirect damage and in particular any damage, loss, or corruption of data;
  • damage resulting from the acts of third parties or cases of force majeure;
  • any claim, damage or loss arising out of or related to:
    • the User’s inability to use all or part of the Application or its functionality;
    • the User’s inability to make the necessary arrangements to contact the emergency services;
    • the User’s inability to provide accurate information about the physical location to an emergency department;
    • the conduct of third-party emergency service agents and call centers with which the User is connected.

The Services are in no way a substitute for the primary mobile telephony service provided by the operator with whom an Operator Subscription has been subscribed, so the User acknowledges and accepts that the Numbers do not allow calls to be made to all classes of numbers. Consequently, calls that cannot be made from the Application (i.e. in particular calls to special numbers, international numbers and emergency numbers) must be made directly from the User’s telephone. ONOFF TELECOM reserves the right to allow Users to make calls to additional number classes after the launch of the Services.

In addition to the foregoing, ONOFF TELECOM cannot be held liable to the User, whether or not ONOFF TELECOM has been informed of the possibility of such damages or losses, for:

  • any indirect damage, and in particular, any loss of income, contracts, real or expected profits, luck, brand image or reputation, customers or turnover;
  • any damage or corruption of data;
  • any claim, damage or loss arising out of or related to:
  • the User’s inability to use all or part of the Application or its functionality;
  • the User’s inability to make the necessary arrangements to contact the emergency services
  • the User’s inability to provide accurate information about the physical location to an emergency department;
  • the conduct of third-party emergency service agents and call centers with which the User is connected.
  • any damage in excess of an amount, all counts of damages combined, corresponding to the total amount paid by the User for the Services during the twelve (12) month period immediately preceding the date of occurrence of the event at the origin of the request in question.

To the extent that the User demonstrates that he has suffered direct damage, the liability of ONOFF TELECOM will be expressly limited to one hundred percent (100%) of the sums actually received by ONOFF TELECOM under the Contract during the last six (6) months preceding the occurrence of the said damage.

20. Force majeure

ONOFF TELECOM cannot be held liable in the event that the non-performance results from a case of force majeure.

Are considered as cases of force majeure, as long as they are not the work of ONOFF TELECOM and that they are beyond its control, exceptional bad weather, natural disasters, fires and floods, lightning, electronic power surges, attacks, internal or external strikes, internal or external failures or failures such as failures related to the telephone network, the networks of ONOFF TELECOM’s service providers, and all those emanating from the mobile phone operator with which the User has subscribed his Operator Subscription, and in general any irresistible and unforeseeable event that does not allow the proper functioning of the Application.
