Business Telecom Buyer Terms and Conditions
Updated: February 15th, 2006

Terms & Conditions

Access to and use of the Business Telecom Buyer site is provided subject to the following terms and conditions. Please read these terms and conditions carefully as your use of the site and Business Telecom Buyer's services constitutes acceptance of these terms and conditions. If you do not agree to the terms and conditions, do not use the site or services. Business Telecom Buyer may, in its sole discretion, modify or revise these terms and conditions at any time by updating this web page. You are bound by any such modification or revision and should visit this page periodically to review the terms.

1. SERVICES

Business Telecom Buyer provides a service that allows buyers to submit Requests for Quotes (RFQs) to multiple suppliers. We strive to make your experience a positive one.

It should be noted that Business Telecom Buyer may not always be able to match your RFQ(s) with suppliers. While we seek to enlist only the highest quality suppliers, we do not guarantee the quality or the credentials of the suppliers who receive and respond to your RFQ. As Business Telecom Buyer is a conduit for matching buyers with suppliers, we are not responsible for any transaction that may occur between you and/or your company and a Business Telecom Buyer participating supplier. Business Telecom Buyer does not guarantee the quality, safety or legality of the information provided or the products and services sold. You should exercise as much caution as you would typically exercise with any purchase of products or services.

Should you have a dispute with any supplier, you must address such dispute with the supplier directly. You hereby agree to release Business Telecom Buyer (and our employees and agents) from any and all damages or claims (including consequential and incidental damages) arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes and your transactions with suppliers.

2. YOUR USE OF Business Telecom Buyer SERVICES

Business Telecom Buyer enables you to initiate transactions for the purchase of products or services. However, Business Telecom Buyer is not the supplier of such products or services, nor is it a third party to any transactions involving such products or services. Business Telecom Buyer matches RFQ(s) from buyers to participating suppliers.

You agree that by completing an RFQ, you are entering into an agreement with Business Telecom Buyer and a business relationship with Business Telecom Buyer's suppliers and thus agree to be contacted by Business Telecom Buyer and its suppliers. You acknowledge that these suppliers can contact you regarding your RFQ(s) and that you are expressly consenting to such contact by them, or Business Telecom Buyer if necessary, to fulfill such RFQ via phone, fax, email, mail or other reasonable means, at any of your contact numbers or addresses. These contacts are necessary to provide the services set forth on our site, to service your account, to reasonably address matters pertaining to your account or for other reasonable purposes related to our business.

It is agreed that your use of Business Telecom Buyer services is for purchasing purposes and not for any other purpose including advertising or competitive intelligence. You acknowledge that Business Telecom Buyer screens your RFQ(s) and has the right (but not the obligation) in our sole discretion to deny any RFQ that is in violation of these terms and conditions.

If it is determined or suspected by Business Telecom Buyer in its sole discretion that you are misusing or attempting to misuse or circumvent the Business Telecom Buyer services or system, or are using or attempting to use it for any inappropriate purposes, including but not limited to activities such as hacking, fraud, advertising, or spamming, Business Telecom Buyer reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to immediately terminate your access without notice and to commence legal actions or proceedings to seek remedies and/or damages, including but not limited to lost revenue, repairs, legal fees, costs and expenses, and to seek injunctions or other equitable remedies.

3. INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE TO US

When using Business Telecom Buyer services, you will be prompted to disclose certain information about yourself and your purchasing requirements. This information will be sent to matching suppliers who will need this information to respond to you. You agree to only complete an RFQ for yourself or another person who has authorized you to share his or her contact information. You promise that all information you provide will be accurate, current and truthful to the best of your knowledge. If you provide any information that is untrue, not current or incomplete, or Business Telecom Buyer has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, Business Telecom Buyer has the right to refuse you any current or future use of the Business Telecom Buyer services. You are responsible for any use of the Business Telecom Buyer services by persons to whom you intentionally or negligently allow access to your password. Your acceptance of these Terms & Conditions indicates that you expressly consent to our use and disclosure of your personal information in accordance with our Privacy Policy.
