Terms and Conditions of Usage|
Any person or entity (hereinafter known as "The User") utilising, or facilitating or causing the usage of the website, services or APIs offered via the website www.numberportabilitylookup.com agrees (and confirms their agreement by the initiation of such usage) to be bound by the following terms and conditions, and service agreement set out below, hereinafter known as the "Agreement".
Description of The Service
The website, www.numberportabilitylookup.com is owned and operated by Comcetera Ltd of 13 Freeland Park, Poole BH16 6FH, a company registered in England, number 6058188, and hereinafter known as "Comcetera".
The aforementioned website is the conduit for provision of a service (hereinafter known as "The Service") for querying the identity of the network operator responsible for providing the cellular telephone service to a specified cellular telephone number.
Operation of The Service
In operation of The Service, The User shall provide the following data to The Service:
- User's allocated account username
- User's allocated account password
- The E.164 formatted mobile number or NANP number to query
The provision of each individual phone number to The Service shall hereinafter be known as a "network query":
In response, The Service will provide the following data to The User:
- The phone number queried
- The PLMN Mobile Network Code of the network operator (Non-NANP GSM Only)
- The OCN code and name the network operator (NANP only)
- Whether the number is a MOBILE or LANDLINE number (NANP only)
- Account status information concerning number of queries performed
Security of The Service and Passwords
In order to operate The Service, The User will choose or be allocated an account username and password which is used to identify The User to The Service for authentication and billing purposes.
It is the responsibility of The User to ensure the security of their password. The password may not be revealed to any third party at any time, under any circumstances.
If the password is (intentionally or accidently) provided to, or falls into possession of any third party, it is the responsibility of The User to report this to Comcetera as a matter of urgency so that a new secure password can be generated.
The User is responsible for all activity on the account, and agrees to pay for any usage of The Service authorised by the username and password allocated to The User. In the event of the password falling into possession of a third party The User is still liable for any charges incurred until such time as Comcetera has acknowledged receipt of the notification of password compromise, and has issued a replacement password.
Representations and Warranty
The services provided are largely dependent on the effective functioning of network operators' cellular networks, network coverage and on additional Parties such as Internet service providers. Comcetera shall make all reasonable endeavours to ensure uninterrupted and continued use of The Service, but cannot guarantee the availability or scope of The Service. The Service is provided as is. The User should verify which networks are covered. Changes may occur as to which networks are covered.
Comcetera shall not be liable for any loss or damages arising from the misuse or inability to use The Service, or for any inaccurate, incomplete, or outdated data provided by The Service, or from any action resulting from the use of such data, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such loss.
In the process of attempting to process a network query, network resources are used and expenses are incurred. Therefore, Comcetera reserves the right to charge for every network query attempted. The User is responsible to ensure all cellular numbers submitted are valid and correct.
Modification and Termination of The Service
Network operators may modify, enhance, develop or discontinue components of their services at any time without prior notice, in which event Comcetera shall be entitled to modify, enhance, develop or discontinue its services without notice.
Comcetera reserves the right to change or terminate The Service at any time at its sole discretion. Where possible, Comcetera will strive to retain backward compatibility with any previous versions of The Service, but where necessary, at the sole discretion of Comcetera, this compatibility may be broken.
Comcetera shall use its reasonable endeavours to provide The User with advance notice of any modification, suspension or termination of its services and shall endeavour to minimise the duration of any suspension thereof in so far as this is reasonably practicable.
Payment and Pricing
Comcetera operates The Service via a prepaid credit system whereby the user purchases a block of network queries in advance and is then able to utilise these queries at their convenience.
Following a brief verification procedure, new accounts are provided with 5 test credits in order to test our service for suitability. The creation of multiple new accounts by the same person or entity shall be viewed as an attempt to fraudulently gain free service. In such situations, we reserve the right to invoice for the credits used, and to seek to reclaim our costs.
Up to date pricing details are available on the "Pricing" page of the website www.numberportabilitylookup.com
Without prejudice to any other right that it may have in law, Comcetera shall have the right to suspend or disable the operation of any user account and the provision of services to any user where the account balance reaches zero, where payment of all charges have not been made in full by the due date, or where Comcetera reasonably suspects that payment has been made or effected by fraudulent means.
Variation of Pricing
Network service providers' charges for use of their networks may vary, and Comcetera may be required to update its charges for The Service from time to time, and will endeavour to provide prior written or electronic notification of any changes of this nature to The User.
Responsibility of Use
The User must comply with all applicable laws, regulations and network operator requirements. Any complaint from a network operator would be regarded in a very serious light and the responsible user may be suspended and forfeit any remaining prepaid credit. Comcetera may block numbers and members from its service should complaints be received. The User is responsible for any fees and costs resulting from or in relation to a carrier complaint, such costs to include any fees, vines, or legal costs incurred by Comcetera plus a handling fee of 500 Pounds Sterling per incident. Fees must be paid within 30 days to avoid late fees and interest.
The User must have express or implied permission of the owner of the cellular telephone before performing a network query. Number queries should not be performed in such a way as to invade the privacy or any person or in contravention of any privacy laws or regulations.
