We are constantly trying to improve our Services, so these Terms may need to change along with the Services. We reserve the right to change the Terms at any time, but if we do, we will bring it to your attention by placing a notice on the BRCK website, by sending you an email, and/or by some other means. If you don’t agree with the new Terms, you are free to reject them by discontinuing your use of the Services; unfortunately, that means you will no longer be able to use the Services. Your use of the Services in any way after a change to the Terms is effective and serves as your acceptance of and agreement with any such changes.
Except for changes by us as described here, no other amendment or modification of these Terms will be effective unless in writing and signed by both you and us.

You represent and warrant that the information you provide is accurate, current, and complete, and agree to promptly update any of the information if it changes. If you provide Registration Data that is, or that BRCK suspects to be, false, inaccurate, not current, incomplete, fraudulent, or otherwise unlawful, BRCK has the right, in its sole discretion, to suspend or terminate the Services and refuse any and all current or future use of all Services by you, your business(es), affiliates and all users of your Account. At all times, you shall maintain and promptly update Registration Data. Upon completion of all Registration Data and acceptance of this Agreement, BRCK will provide you with, as applicable, a password(s), user ID(s), telephone number(s), and other account information. You are solely liable for any transactions or activities by you or anyone else that occur on Your Account. You shall immediately notify BRCK of any unauthorized use of your Account or if any other breach of security has occurred. In no event shall BRCK be liable for any unauthorized use of your Account.

You represent and warrant that you have made and will maintain at all times wireless or traditional wireline telephone service that will enable you to call 911 and any other applicable emergency service number.

Any information transmitted through the Services is the sole responsibility of the person from whom such information originated, and you access all such information at your own risk. BRCK is not liable for any errors or omissions in that information or for any damages or loss you might suffer in connection with it. We cannot control and have no duty to take any action regarding how you may interpret and use the information or what actions you may take as a result of having been exposed to the information, and you hereby release us from all liability for you having acquired or not acquired information through the Services. We do not guarantee the identity of any users with whom you interact in using the Services and are not responsible for which users gain access to the Services.
You are responsible for all your activity in connection with the Services.
The Services may contain links or connections to third-party websites or services that are not owned or controlled by BRCK. You access any such third-party websites or services at your own risk and are responsible for reading and abiding by any terms and conditions, privacy policies, or any other terms, conditions, warranties, or representations associated with such third parties or their websites or services. BRCK disclaims any liability arising from such use and by using the Services, you release and hold BRCK harmless from any and all liability arising from your interactions with any third parties or your use of any third-party website or service.
Certain services made available via the Services are delivered by third-party sites and organizations. By using any product, service or functionality of the Services, you hereby acknowledge and consent that BRCK may share such information and data with any third party with whom BRCK has a contractual relationship to provide the requested product, service or functionality on behalf of BRCK’s users and customers.
If there is a dispute between participants on this site, or between users and any third party, you agree that BRCK is under no obligation to become involved. In the event that you have a dispute with one or more other users, you release BRCK, its officers, employees, agents, and successors from claims, demands, and damages of every kind or nature, known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, disclosed or undisclosed, arising out of or in any way related to such disputes and/or our Services. If you are a California resident, you shall and hereby do waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”
BRCK, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to add, remove, or modify features or functions, including reassignment of phone numbers when such numbers are no longer available, or to provide fixes, updates and upgrades, to the Services. You acknowledge and agree that BRCK has no obligation to make available to You any subsequent versions of the Services. In addition, you and BRCK acknowledge that no third party has any obligation whatsoever to furnish maintenance or support services with respect to the Services and that BRCK is solely responsible for the provision of maintenance and support as provided in this Agreement and to the extent such maintenance and support is required under applicable law. Your continued use of the Services following any modification of the Services constitutes your agreement with any such changes or updates.
In the event that you wish to stop using the Services, you may do so at any time, by contacting us at [email protected] BRCK may terminate (or suspend access to) your use of the Services or your Account, for any reason in our sole discretion, including, but not limited to, your breach of these Terms.
If you choose to sign up for any Services that carry a fee (the “Paid Services”) you will be charged the then current fees for such Paid Services. Unless otherwise agreed, all fees paid to BRCK are non-refundable.
Unless you are paying for the service pursuant to an invoicing arrangement with BRCK or one of our authorized resellers (“Reseller”), as described in the following paragraphs, any applicable initiation charges, usage, monthly recurring charges, support charges, and other fees are billed in full in advance. Termination, international calling, equipment return fees and transfer charges, if any, are billed in arrears. Upon termination of your Account for any reason, all unused calling credits and international calling credits shall expire in their entirety on the termination date. No refund, transfer or proration shall be made of any unused calling credits, additional credits, promotional credits, or international calling credits or of any remaining periods/months on any account.
When you subscribe to Services, you will provide us with a valid payment method, such as a valid credit card (including proper billing information), and, if applicable, authorize us to collect from your payment method. Any authorization will remain valid until thirty (30) days after you terminate our authority to charge your payment method. Upon termination, we will charge you any fees and any other outstanding charges and disconnect your Service. You agree to advise and notify us of any changes to your payment method, such as credit card account number or expiration date changes. If the credit card or other payment method on your Account is declined or fails for any reason, BRCK will use reasonable efforts to contact you and advise you of the failed billing attempts. Notwithstanding the foregoing, BRCK reserves the right to disconnect your Service and terminate your Account if your credit card on file is declined or fails for any reason, and BRCK reserves the right to continue to attempt charging your credit card for any outstanding Service charges and additional fees and pursue any other legal remedies available to BRCK.
Time is of the essence for payment. Therefore, you agree to pay us interest at the lesser rate of (a) 18% per annum or (b) the highest rate allowed by law for any amounts unpaid as of the due date. Acceptance of late or partial payments (even if marked “Paid in Full”) shall not waive any of BRCK’s rights to collect the full amount due. We may assess an additional fee of the lesser of (a) fifty dollars ($50) or (b) the highest amount allowed by law for any credit card chargeback or check returned for nonpayment.
Billing cycle end dates may change from time to time. When a billing cycle covers less than or more than a full month, we may make reasonable adjustments and prorate the charges to your Account.
You must dispute any charges for the Services in writing to BRCK within thirty (30) days of the date of the charge by BRCK. If you fail to provide a written statement explaining in reasonable detail your reasons for disputing the charge within such time period, you hereby irrevocably waive any objection and further recourse with regard to such charges. Written statements disputing charges must be sent to [email protected]
With respect to its advertising, offering, or sale of Services, BRCK attempts to describe its products as accurately as possible. Nevertheless, BRCK does not warrant that any descriptions, pricing, availability, or other information relating to the advertising, offering, or sale of Services (collectively, “Service Information”) from its website, marketing materials, promotional flyers, advertisements, or other printed or electronic materials (collectively, “Service Materials”) is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. Despite our efforts, it is possible that Service Information may be mispriced, described inaccurately, or that the Services may be unavailable. In the event BRCK determines that a Service is mispriced, described inaccurately, or unavailable, BRCK reserves the right to take any action it deems reasonable and necessary to rectify the error, including without limitation, canceling your Account or subscription to the Services. You agree to notify BRCK immediately if you become aware of any pricing or descriptive errors or inconsistencies with any Services you order through the Service Materials and comply with any corrective action taken by BRCK. You acknowledge and agree that the Services may not be available 100% of the time. Credit allowances for interruption of the Services may only be provided on a case-by-case basis at the sole discretion of BRCK and shall be your sole remedy for any Service interruptions or other issues with the Services.
All fees for Services advertised or otherwise listed on the website are exclusive of any federal, state, local sales, international excise, value-added, and similar taxes or fees and administrative or recovery fees or charges (collectively “Taxes and Fees”). You agree to pay all Taxes and Fees and/or similar liabilities, however denominated, that may now or hereafter be levied on the Services, which are chargeable to or recoverable from customers by any federal, state, local, or international law or regulation, as well as any administrative and recovery fees and charges levied on the Services by BRCK, whether or not mandated by law or regulation. Should BRCK pay or be required to pay such liabilities (including any Taxes and Fees that were due but not charged or previously collected), You agree that BRCK may invoice you or charge your credit card on file for such payments upon receipt of an invoice and showing of indebtedness to BRCK.
You are responsible for paying all charges for your Account, including but not limited to toll-free, local, long distance, international, additional feature charges, 411 and operator assisted charges, and directory assistance charges, and for all taxes, surcharges, and fees imposed on you or us as a result of your use of the Service.
From time to time in its sole discretion, BRCK may offer promotions or discounts. Any promotion or discount code must be provided to BRCK upon purchase of the Services. You shall not be entitled to a subsequent credit for such promotions or discounts if you do not request such credit at the time of account creation or change of service. Promotions and/or discounts may not be used cumulatively or be used for Services retroactively. If a promotion and/or discount is offered on a confidential basis, you agree not to disclose the promotion and/or discount and to assume full responsibility for any harm, direct or indirect, caused to BRCK by the disclosure of the promotion and/or discount.
BRCK offers unlimited monthly calling for domestic calls (United States and Canada) and text messages from your mobile phone or computer. An unlimited service provides you with a domestic telephone number and is subject to the terms and restrictions of the Acceptable Use Policy along with any other restrictions described herein, as well as any reseller agreements, if applicable. If, for any reason, BRCK believes that you are using the unlimited service for a prohibited purpose and/or your call usage violates the Acceptable Use Policy, then BRCK may, in its sole discretion with or without notice, terminate your unlimited service.
BRCK offers toll-free numbers, for an additional monthly fee, plus additional charges based on the minutes of use for inbound calls. Having a toll-free number requires that you maintain a balance of calling credits. When you are nearing exhaustion of your initial paid allotment of calling credits, we will automatically recharge on your behalf, an incremental package for additional credits, unless you disable this feature otherwise. Post-paid pricing packages and other variable terms may be available through invoiced accounts or resellers. Please refer to any applicable reseller agreements for additional terms of service. If, for any reason, BRCK believes that you are using the toll-free calling for a prohibited purpose and/or your call usage violates the Acceptable Use Policy, then BRCK may, in its sole discretion with or without notice, terminate your toll-free calling service.
To make international calls using the Services, you must enable international calling in your settings and pre-purchase at least the minimum package of international calling credits necessary to make such international calls. Insufficient credits may cause your call to be terminated. Packages of international calling credits will decrement based on the rate defined per country and carrier. Our international calling rates are available at https://www.brck.com/rates/ . In addition, you may be charged any applicable Taxes and Fees associated with international calls. You are solely responsible for the region and numbers you choose and any associated charges on your Account. BRCK also offers some “local” international numbers for you to make and receive calls and texts. Rates, terms, Taxes and Fees associated with international inbound and outbound calling and texting services may vary based on the country and reseller agreement, if applicable. If, for any reason, BRCK believes that You are using the Service for a prohibited purpose and/or your call usage violates the Acceptable Use Policy, then BRCK may, in its sole discretion with or without notice, terminate your service.
The account owner shall be the legal entity (e.g., corporation, partnership, individual) that signs up for the Services with BRCK. If no legal entity is provided upon sign-up, the account owner shall be the owner of the credit card used to open the account. Subsequent changes to ownership must be supported by appropriate legal documentation. BRCK shall not adjudicate ownership-related disputes, or any other internal business dispute. If BRCK is unable to determine the valid owner of the account, BRCK reserves the right to suspend or terminate the account and Services.
BRCK’s Services may include one or more Voice over Internet Protocol (“VoIP”) lines, including the option to add additional lines at a later date. Your license to the Services is provided for a term specified in your order (the “Term”) through BRCK or an authorized Reseller. The initial Term begins on the date that you sign up for the Services (the “Date of Purchase”). The Term for all Services will renew automatically for successive Terms of the same length without further action by or notice to you unless you notify BRCK customer service of non-renewal at least thirty (30) days before the end of the then current Term, unless otherwise provided in your Agreement.
