Last Updated: September 25, 2020
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CAREFULLY. They govern the relationship between you and United Telecom, LLC, including its parents, subsidiaries, and/or affiliates, ("Company"), the provider of FreedomPop services, and explain our respective legal rights concerning all aspects of our relationship.
IF YOU USE THE SERVICE OR THE WIRELESS DEVICE, YOU CONSENT TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, DO NOT USE THE SERVICE OR DEVICE AND NOTIFY US IMMEDIATELY AT 1-888-702-8302 TO CANCEL SERVICE.
This is an agreement ("Agreement") for wireless radio telecommunications services and related services and/or features ("Service") between you and the entity licensed by the Federal Communications Commission to provide Service in the area associated with your assigned telephone, data and/or messaging number(s) ("Number") that is doing business as FreedomPop ("us" or "we"). The term "Device" means wireless receiving and transmitting equipment that we have authorized to be programmed with the Number.
A. Availability/Interruption. FreedomPop customers have access to nationwide wireless coverage under the agreements between Company and its underlying carriers. Please review the coverage maps available on our website, which shows a general representation of wireless coverage. The areas shown are approximate. These maps may include areas served by unaffiliated carriers and may depict their licensed area rather than an approximation of their coverage. Actual coverage may vary and depends on system availability and system capacity, system repairs and modifications, customer’s equipment, terrain, signal strength, weather and other conditions. Company does not guarantee network coverage, network availability or network uptime in any manner whatsoever. Company does not guarantee uninterrupted service. Wireless service offered by Company requires a compatible Device and is only available in the coverage area subject to wireless network availability. Not all features or Service offerings are available at all locations. Charges will be based on the location of the site receiving and transmitting the call, not your location. Rates apply to calls made within the Company coverage areas. Your Device's display does not indicate the rate that you will be charged.
B. Use of Service/Device/Number. Reproduction, retransmission, dissemination or resale of Service is prohibited without prior written contractual arrangements from Company and any required regulatory approvals. You are responsible for ensuring that your Device is compatible with our Service and meets federal standards. You are responsible for the purchase and maintenance of any additional hardware, software and/or Internet access from your PC required to use the Service. You consent to receiving advertising, alerts and other broadcast messages from Company or our authorized agents. You shall acquire no proprietary interest in numbers assigned by Company for your use. You have no ownership rights to the Number, any IP address, any e-mail address or any other identifier provisioned by us, our agents or the manufacturer of your Device to be used with the Service, and you agree we may change any such Number, IP address, e-mail address or any other identifier at any time with or without prior notice to you. Any Device purchased through our program has been manufactured to operate exclusively with Service provided by us. The Device cannot be activated with any other wireless carrier. By using Service, you agree to abide by the terms and conditions of any applicable software license.
C. Unauthorized Usage. You agree not to use the Device or Service for any unlawful, unauthorized or abusive purpose or in any way that damages our property or others' property, or interferes with, harms or disrupts our system or other operators' systems or other users. You will comply with all laws while using the Service and you will not transmit any communication or data that would violate any laws, court order, or regulation, or would likely be offensive to the recipient. You are responsible for all content that you transmit using the Service. You may not install any amplifiers, enhancers, repeaters or other devices that modify, disrupt or interfere in any way with the radio frequency licensed to us to provide Service. If your Device, user name or password is stolen or Service is fraudulently used, you must immediately notify us and provide us with such documentation and information as we may request (including affidavits and police reports). Until you notify us, you will remain responsible for all charges. We have the right to interrupt or restrict Service to your Number, without notice to you, if we suspect fraudulent, illegal, or abusive activity. You agree to cooperate with us in any fraud investigation and to use any fraud prevention measures we prescribe. Failure to provide reasonable cooperation may result in your liability for all fraudulent usage.
E. Your Rights to End This Agreement. You may terminate your Service at any time by notifying us of your intention to terminate Service. There is no penalty or termination fee; however, it may take up to 30 days to process the termination request and the balance remaining in your account is forfeited upon termination of Service. Your Service will resume and the termination request will be cancelled if you use your Service prior to our processing your termination notification.
A. Generally. You are responsible for paying all charges, including but not limited to: airtime, access, features, voice mail access, voice mail delivery, data usage, text messages, downloadable content, alerts, roaming, long distance, directory and operator assistance charges, the price of Devices and accessories, charges for other goods and services and shipping/handling fees. You will be billed at domestic airtime or roaming rates (please refer to rate card) for 800, 866, 877, 888, and other "toll free" calls. Applicable international charges will always be billed for direct dial calls placed from your Device. An international long distance provider chosen by Company will provide your international long distance. For all calls, the length of the call will be measured during the time that you are connected to our system, which is approximately from the time you press "Send" or other key to begin a call until approximately the time you press "End," or other key to terminate the call. Airtime usage on each call is deducted in full minute increments, with partial minutes of use rounded up to the next full minute. For calls placed in the United States, you will not be charged for busy or unconnected calls if you press "End" or "No" within 30 seconds. Unanswered calls lasting 30 seconds or more will be charged standard airtime and rounded up to the nearest minute. Call waiting, 3-way calling, call forwarding, voicemail will incur applicable airtime or roaming and wireless long distance charges. Please note you may be charged a higher rate for calls made off-network. You will be charged for any check or electronic bank draft returned for non-payment. Please refer to your rate card for details.
B. Account Balance. All charges incurred will be deducted automatically from your account. Any payments or credits applied to your account are not transferable or refundable. You should take reasonable efforts to safeguard your Device and replenishment airtime cards. No refunds or other compensations will be given for returned, expired, lost, damaged, or stolen cards. Amounts deposited to your account expire between 0 to 365 days depending on card denomination. If new amounts are not added to your account prior to the expiration date any remaining amounts will be forfeited. Your account may be canceled if there is no usage (billable or non-billable) or if the balance remains as $0 for 30 consecutive days or more and you may be required to pay a fee to resume service. Credit card replenishment is available; limitations apply. In some instances you may be able to complete a call when the billing functionality is interrupted. When this occurs you will not receive correct balance information. All calls, however, will be deducted from your account and the balance updated when the billing functionality is operable. You are responsible for all data usage sent through our network and associated with the Device, regardless of whether the Device actually receives the information. For FreedomPop monthly plans: Airtime expiration is 30 days from the date the appropriate payment is applied to your account. To ensure uninterrupted service, you are required to recharge your account at least once every 30 days. Your account will be canceled if the balance remains at $0 for 30 consecutive days or more. For FreedomPop annual plans: Airtime expiration is 360 days from the date the appropriate payment is applied to your account.
C. Use of Service/Rates. Your Service rates and other charges and conditions for each Number or Device are described in the replenishment card packaging and at our website at www.FreedomPop.com, each of which is a part of this Agreement. You can place domestic and international calls from the U.S. to certain designated international locations. The prepaid per minute rates are based on the card value purchased. International rates vary and are subject to change. Visit www.FreedomPop.com for international rates and available countries applicable to your FreedomPop™ plan. You cannot use the Service to place calls to 500, 700, 855, 900 or 976 numbers; or to place operator-assisted calls such as third-party-billed, and collect calls. Rates for calls to directory assistance are $3.00 per call plus airtime or roaming charges. You will be billed at domestic rates for 800, 888, 877, and 866 number calls. You are responsible for all taxes and surcharges associated with your use of the Service. Other than calls to 911, you can only make and receive calls when your account has a positive balance. Special dialing patterns may be required when making roaming or international calls. Some locations require a credit card to complete a call; these rates will be higher. When in these areas, you will not be able to receive calls. Prepaid wireless service is not available for purchase or use in all areas. When using Call Waiting or Three-Way Calling, you will incur two simultaneous airtime charges and if you disconnect from a conference call while the other two parties remain connected, you will continue to incur airtime charges for all calls. Nationwide long distance included from within the 50 states, Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands. Calls from the 50 United States to other destinations, including Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, may be considered international long distance calls and rated accordingly.
D. Default/Termination. If you breach any representation to us or fail to perform any of the promises you made in the Agreement, you will be in default and we may, without notice to you, suspend Service and/or terminate this Agreement, in addition to all other remedies available to us.
E. Account Information. Any person able to provide your Number and personal identification number is authorized by you to make changes to your account. You consent to disclosure of any information about you to any person as permitted by law if any Device programmed with your Number calls an emergency service number such as 911 or, if we reasonably believe that an emergency involving immediate danger of death or serious physical injury to any person requires disclosure of communications or justifies disclosure of records without delay.
F. CPNI Consent. Under federal law, you have a right, and we have a duty, to protect the confidentiality of information about the amount, type, and destination of your wireless service usage (CPNI). You consent to us sharing your CPNI with Company, its affiliates and its contractors, to develop or bring to your attention any products and services. This consent survives the termination of your Service and is valid until you remove it. To remove this consent at any time, notify us in writing at United Telecom, LLC dba FreedomPop Attn: CPNI, 2060D Avenida de los Arboles, Ste 606, Thousand Oaks, CA 91362, providing your name, home address, home telephone including area code, and personal identification number. Removing consent will not affect your current Service.
G. Regulatory Recovery Fee. The Regulatory Recovery Fee is assessed by Company to recover costs associated with compliance and payment of telecommunications taxes and fees. The regulatory recovery fee may be charged to all service payments to cover charges including, but not limited to: 1) Federal Universal Service Fund Fees, 2) E911 or 911 Fees, 3) State, County and Local Telecommunications Taxes and Surcharges, 4) Legal costs for regulatory compliance, 5) State and Local Sales Tax. Although added to the overall charge, the Regulatory Recovery Fee is separate from the cost of any Services.
H. No Refunds for Your Cancellation of Service or Product Order. FreedomPop offers prepaid, non-refundable service only. You may cancel any Service plan that you pay for in advance at any time; provided that, except as otherwise may be required by applicable law, you will not receive any refund of amounts paid to us in connection with such Service plan (regardless of whether such plan is a 7-, 15-, or 30 day Service plan or a multi-month Service plan). Any purchase from the FreedomPop website is considered a final sale and is non-refundable, except as otherwise may be required by applicable law. Any purchase from one of our authorized e-commerce outlets hosted on a third party site, including eBay.com and Amazon.com, is also non-refundable, except as otherwise may be required by applicable law or as provided by FreedomPop’s specific terms on such third party site.
I. AutoPay. FreedomPop AutoPay Plans are available in various denominations of minutes and service days. You are automatically enrolled in AutoPay by registering your credit or debit card online with FreedomPop and selecting your preferred Service Plan. A new Service Plan will automatically be purchased using your registered payment method and added to your Account via AutoPay either a) each month on your Plan Expiration Date, or b) in the case of the Free Plan and other designated plans, when you consume your current plan’s allocated service prior to your Plan Expiration Date. In the case of the Free Plan, should you consume your allocated services prior to your Plan Expiration Date, you will be enrolled in the $8 monthly plan via AutoPay. To modify or cancel AutoPay you must contact Customer Service or login to your online account at FreedomPop.com. For additional information about how AutoPay works please visit this support article or contact Customer Service.
J. Online Product Purchases. For all Devices and SIM Kits purchased online ("Online Product Purchases"), Company reserves the right to change quantities available for purchase at any time, even after you place an order. Furthermore, there may be occasions when Company confirms your order but subsequently learns that it cannot supply the ordered product. In the event we cannot supply a product that you ordered, Company will cancel and refund your order purchase based on the full price paid. Online Product Purchases are not intended for resale. You are not eligible to request a refund for any Online Product Purchases when forty-five (45) calendar days have passed since the order date (“45-Day Refund Exclusion”). Online Product Purchases that are subject to the 45-Day Refund Exclusion, that are bundled with a service plan, and that are not subsequently activated will automatically become inactive after ninety (90) calendar days following the order date. Online Product Purchases are set up as AutoPay charges. AutoPay billing will begin 30 days after activation. Your AutoPay subscription will continue to recur until you terminate your subscription at freedompop.com/login.
K. Family Plans. Each line of service on a FreedomPop family plan will be charged the full monthly retail price during the first month of service. All lines of service on a family plan must share the same expiration date on subsequent billing months. As a result, lines added to a family plan after the initial primary line may receive a partial month service period for the first month of service. For such lines, FreedomPop will provide discount credits to the second month of service on a pro-rated basis.
L. Maintenance Fee. Notwithstanding anything else in these Terms to the contrary, if you choose any Free Service Plan and (a) do not make a payment for excess usage, Value Added Services, or other Services in any particular month and (b) use less than 5mb or make fewer then five (5) calls in any given month, FreedomPop reserves the right to charge you a $0.01 maintenance fee ("Maintenance Fee") to keep your FreedomPop Account active. For your convenience, FreedomPop will automatically charge the Maintenance Fee to your valid payment method on file each month that the Maintenance Fee is applicable to ensure no disruption of the Service, Value Added Services, or other Services. If we are unable to charge your valid payment method on file, we may cancel your Service and, at our discretion, any Value Added Services or ther Services; upon such cancelation, any remaining balance in your FreedomPop Account will be forfeited and you will be required to reactivate Service, and if applicable, Value Added Services, or other Services.
III. INTENDED USAGE & RESTRICTIONS ON USE

You agree that the Service is not to be used for any type of monitoring service, commercial data transmission, transmission of recorded material or broadcasts, non-personal or non-real time conference call bridging, call forwarding for extended periods of time or other use that does not consist of uninterrupted live voice or SMS messaging between two individuals. Company may terminate or suspend Service or change your plan to one that does not offer unlimited Service if Company determines that you are using the unlimited Service offer in an unauthorized manner as described in this section. Company will make reasonable efforts to give prior notice before taking any above action and you may terminate the unlimited Service.
C. Data Services. UNLIMITED DOES NOT MEAN UNREASONABLE USE. UNLIMITED Data services are provided solely for personal, non-commercial access to the Internet for purposes of web browsing, messaging, and similar data activities as your authorized device’s native applications and capabilities permit. To ensure that all customers have access to reliable services provided at a reasonable cost, you will not use our service in a manner that interferes with another customer's use of our service or that disproportionately impacts our network or resources, or those of our underlying carrier. We reserve the right, without notice or limitation, to place you on a different service plan with no unlimited usage components, to limit data throughput speeds or quantities, or to deny, terminate, end, modify, disconnect or suspend your service, or decline to renew your service, if you engage in any of the prohibited uses detailed herein or if we, in our sole discretion, determines that action is necessary to protect our wireless service or resources from harm or degradation, or that your usage disproportionately impacts our or our underlying carrier’s network or resources. You will not use our data service: (1) with server devices or host computer applications or other systems that drive continuous heavy traffic or data sessions, including, but not limited to, disproportionate web camera posts or broadcasts, automatic data feeds, automated machine-to-machine connections, peer-to-peer (P2P) file-sharing applications broadcast to multiple servers or recipients such that they could enable "bots" or similar routines; (2) as a substitute or backup for private lines or frame relay connections; (3) to send or receive unusually high numbers of messages; (4) to engage in atypical web usage behaviors; (5) for any activity that adversely affects the ability of other people or systems to use either our wireless services or other parties' Internet-based resources; and (6) for any other reason that, in our sole discretion, harms our network or disproportionately impacts our or our underlying carrier’s network or resources. Users on our Unlimited Plan will notice reduced data speeds when data usage exceeds an average of 30GB during the current billing month.
D. FreedomPop service plans may ONLY be used for the following purposes: (i) Person to Person Voice Calls (ii) Text and Picture Messaging and (iii) Internet browsing. FreedomPop service MAY NOT be used for any other purpose. Examples of prohibited uses include, without limitation, the following: (i) continuous mobile to mobile or mobile to landline voice calls; (ii) automated text or picture messaging to another mobile device or e-mail address; (iii) uploading, downloading or streaming of audio or video programming or games for commercial or non-personal purposes; (iv) server devices or host computer applications, including, but not limited to, Web camera posts or broadcasts, automatic data feeds, automated machine-to-machine connections or peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing; or (v) as a substitute or backup for private lines or dedicated data connections. This means, by way of example only, that checking email, surfing the Internet, downloading legally acquired songs, and/or visiting corporate intranets is permitted, but downloading movies using P2P file sharing services and/or redirecting television signals for viewing on laptops is prohibited. A person engaged in prohibited uses may have his/her service terminated without notice or a refund. We reserve the right to deny service, deactivate or cancel existing service to anyone for any reason at any time, in our sole discretion.
E. FreedomPop service plans are for individual use only and not for resale. Specifically, FreedomPop services are provided solely for live dialogue between, and initiated by, two individuals for personal use and as otherwise described in this policy. Unlimited voice services may not be used for any other purposes, including, but not limited to, conference calling, monitoring services, data transmissions, transmission of broadcasts, transmission of recorded material, interconnection to other networks, telemarketing, autodialed calls, other commercial uses, or other connections that do not consist of uninterrupted live dialogue between two individuals.
F. We reserve the right to cancel or deactivate service, and/or reduce data throughput, without notice, in order to protect the Carrier’s network from harm due to any cause including, without limitation, the excessive and/or improper use of FreedomPop service. We reserve the right to limit or reduce data throughput speeds or the amount of data transferred, block particular websites, and to deny or terminate Service, without notice, to anyone that we believe is using the Service in any manner prohibited above or whose usage, in our sole discretion, adversely impacts the Carrier’s network or customer service levels. We will presume that you are engaging in a prohibited use in violation of these Terms and Conditions if in FreedomPop’s sole opinion, you are placing an abnormally high number of calls, or repeatedly placing calls of unusually long duration, or if your talk, text or internet usage is harmful or disruptive to the Carrier’s network or services. If we determine, at our sole discretion, that you are using the Service in violation of these Terms and Conditions of Service, or in any other manner that we deem to be unreasonable or excessive, then we may terminate individual calls, terminate or reduce the speed of data connection throughput, internet access or terminate your service, decline to renew your service, block particular websites, and/or offer you a different service plan with no unlimited usage component. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we reserve the right to deny service, deactivate or cancel existing service, block particular websites, terminate data connections and/or reduce data throughput speeds, to anyone for any reason at any time, in our sole discretion.
G. We may discontinue providing Service to you, discontinue your account, discontinue providing connections to particular telephone numbers or types of Services used or called by you, terminate data connections and/or reduce data throughput speeds for any reason that we deem appropriate, including but not limited to accounts with usage patterns that, in our sole judgment : (1) appear likely to generate abnormally high call volumes or internet data usage and/or abnormally long average call lengths or internet data usage as compared to the usage of other of our customers; (2) may be harmful, disruptive, or interfere with the Carrier’s network or Company, or the Carrier’s or our ability to provide service to other customers; or (3) for any other reason in our sole discretion. By initiating Service and placing or receiving calls, you acknowledge and agree to our right to terminate your Service under these circumstances.
H. We may modify or cancel any Service or take corrective action at any time without prior notice and for any reason, including but not limited to your violation of this agreement.
The parties intend that the limitations on liability, warranty and damage awards provided for in this Agreement will apply to the fullest extent allowed by law. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the waiver, limitation or exclusion of liability for punitive, incidental or consequential damages, or for intentional or willful conduct in some circumstances. To the extent that applicable law does not permit any of these limitations, they will not apply to you.

V. RESOLUTION OF DISPUTES
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS RIGHTS THAT YOU MAY OTHERWISE HAVE. IT PROVIDES FOR RESOLUTION OF MOST DISPUTES THROUGH ARBITRATION INSTEAD OF COURT TRIALS AND CLASS ACTIONS. ARBITRATION IS FINAL AND BINDING AND SUBJECT TO ONLY VERY LIMITED REVIEW BY A COURT. THIS ARBITRATION CLAUSE SHALL SURVIVE TERMINATION OF THIS AGREEMENT.
B. Arbitration Procedures. You must first present any claim or dispute to us by contacting Customer Care to allow us an opportunity to resolve the dispute. You may request arbitration if your claim or dispute has not been resolved within 90 days. The arbitration of any dispute or claim shall be conducted in accordance with the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") under the Wireless Industry Arbitration Rules ("WIA Rules"), as modified by this Agreement. The WIA Rules and information about arbitration and fees are available upon request from the AAA online at www.adr.org. You and we agree that this Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce and this arbitration provision will be interpreted and enforced in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law. Unless you and we agree otherwise, any arbitration will take place in the county seat for the county in which your billing address is located. At either party's election, the arbitration shall be held telephonically. An arbitrator may award any relief or damages (including injunctive or declaratory relief) that a court could award, except an arbitrator may not award relief in excess of or contrary to what this Agreement provides and may not order relief on a consolidated, class wide or representative basis. In any arbitration applying the WIA Rules applicable to large/complex cases, the Arbitrators must also apply the Federal Rules of Evidence, and the losing party may have the award reviewed in accordance with the review procedures set forth in the WIA Rules. Judgment on any arbitration award may be entered in any court having proper jurisdiction. If any portion of this arbitration clause is determined by a court to be inapplicable or invalid, then the remainder shall still be given full force and effect.
C. Costs of Arbitration. For claims of less than $1,000, you will pay your share of the arbitration fees. For claims over $1,000 but under $75,000, you will be obligated to pay your share of the arbitration fees, but no more than the equivalent court filing fee for a court action filed in the jurisdiction where your billing address is located. For arbitrations in excess of $75,000, all administrative fees and expenses of arbitration will be divided equally between you and us. In all arbitrations, each party will bear the expense of its own counsel, experts, witnesses and preparation and presentation of evidence at the arbitration.
D. Waiver of Class Actions. By this Agreement, both you and we are waiving certain rights to litigate disputes in court. You and we both agree that any arbitration will be conducted on an individual basis and not on a consolidated, class wide or representative basis. If for any reason this arbitration clause is deemed inapplicable or invalid, or to the extent this arbitration clause allows for litigation of disputes in court, you and we both waive, to the fullest extent allowed by law, any right to pursue any claims on a class or consolidated basis or in a representative capacity.
E. Limitations Period. Any arbitration or legal action with respect to any and all claims or causes of action related to or arising out of this Agreement must be brought within two years after the cause of action arises, or within the applicable statutory period of time, whichever is shorter. This limitation period does not apply to any given cause of action when the statutory limitations period for that cause of action cannot be waived, restricted or otherwise limited by you.

Copied, microfiche, scanned or other duplicate or electronic images of this Agreement are admissible for all purposes.
E. Governing Laws. This Agreement is subject to applicable federal laws, federal or state tariffs, if any and the laws of the state associated with the Number. Where a state agency or the FCC regulates the terms and conditions of our Service, the regulations are available for your inspection; if there is any inconsistency between this Agreement and those regulations, this Agreement shall be deemed amended as necessary to conform to such regulations.

Referrer: Referrers will receive one credit for each successful referral that results in a new account activation.
- You must be an active FreedomPop subscriber on a valid monthly plan in good standing to earn rewards for your referrals.
- You cannot refer yourself. You cannot refer a line added to an existing account - multi-line plans are ineligible for the Program. Referred lines must bring an existing line from another carrier at activation.
- You cannot exceed $500 in rewards per calendar year.
- After your referee successfully activates and replenishes their FreedomPop account, you will be notified via email that you have earned a reward. YOU MUST CLICK ON THE LINK PROVIDED IN THE EMAIL TO CLAIM YOUR REWARD SO THAT THE CREDIT CAN BE APPLIED TO YOUR ACCOUNT. Account credits will not be issued if rewards are unclaimed.
- Please allow 6 weeks after each successful referral for the service credit to be applied. When the service credit is applied we will send you an email notification.
- You will receive a credit of up to $25 towards one future month of service. Single credits cannot be used for multiple months. If the referee chooses a plan that is less than $30 for their second month of service, your total credit will be equal to the amount of their new plan.
Referee: Referees will receive $25 off of the first month of service for any plan that is $30 or higher. Referees will receive $7.50 off of the first month of service for any plan with a retail value below $30.
Once you complete your plan and SIM order, you must activate on a valid FreedomPop monthly plan within 30 days and perform a minimum of one monthly plan renewal in order for the referrer to earn their credit.
FreedomPop reserves the right to void any Referral credit based on factors that include but are not limited to the following: (1) ineligibility of any Program participant, (2) fraudulent activation or, (3) if FreedomPop, in its sole discretion, finds that you have violated any of the Program terms and conditions.
We reserve the right to change the terms and conditions of the FreedomPop Refer-a-Friend program at any time, without notice, and at our sole discretion. We reserve the right to not award a credit or disqualify someone from the Program if we feel, in our sole discretion, that fraudulent behavior or other unethical conduct has occurred that compromises the fairness of the Program in any way. Fraudulent or unethical means of communication such as using bots, fictitious identities, fake emails, or scripts is also prohibited and will result in similar actions by us with respect to terminating your account and participation in the Program. Company services are subject to additional terms, conditions, and other restrictions.
Void Where Prohibited: the Program is void where prohibited by law.
By participating in this Program, you agree to release and hold Company, its officers, directors, affiliates, agents and employees harmless. You further agree that the Program and credits are provided “as is where is”.
Eligibility: Eligibility is limited to individuals only. FreedomPop's Refer-a-Friend Program cannot be used by businesses for affiliate lead generation, as determined in our sole discretion.
No SPAM: You must comply with all up-to-date “SPAM” laws, including the U.S. CAN-SPAM Act. Emails must be created and distributed in a personal manner and bulk email distribution is strongly discouraged. Any distribution of your referral link that could constitute unsolicited commercial email or “SPAM” under any applicable law or regulation is expressly prohibited and will be grounds for immediate termination of your account and exclusion from FreedomPop's Refer-a-Friend program. Any use of bots, fictitious identities, scripts, email address generators, fake emails or “spoofed” email accounts, will be grounds for termination of your participation in the Program. You represent that you have the prospective Referred Referee’s permission to provide their email address and to send that message.
