- GigabitNow strongly recommends that the Subscriber install additional anti-virus software on personal computers and other network- connected devices for the purpose of detection, scanning, and removal of any new or pre-existing system viruses.

- Subscriber hereby agrees to indemnify and hold harmless GigabitNow and its Contractor(s), their directors, officers, officials, employees, agents, committees, and volunteers from any and all liability, claims, injuries, damages, losses, suits, or demands whatsoever against any of them arising out of or in connection with the Services delivered to the Property pursuant to this Agreement and for which GigabitNow or its contractors are not negligent or otherwise solely responsible.
Service Interruptions and Legal Action:
- In the event of a Service interruption, GigabitNow or its Contractor may provide a credit on the Subscriber’s account. GigabitNow’s Internet service has historically been extremely reliable. In the event of a Service interruption for a full calendar day, GigabitNow will provide an additional day of Service at the end of the stated term for each day Subscriber experiences this problem. This is the sole remedy available to Subscriber for Service disputes and will be granted solely by GigabitNow. A “Service interruption” for this purpose does not include periods when all or part of the network is unavailable due to (i) scheduled network normal maintenance (with at least 24 hours advance notice to Subscriber), (ii) failure or malfunction of equipment, applications or systems not owned or not controlled by GigabitNow or its 3rd party providers, (iii) malfunction or inappropriate engineering of Subscriber’s network, applications, equipment, or facilities, (iv) negligence and acts or omissions of Subscriber, Subscriber’s Subscriber, employees, contractors or agents or its end users, or (v) circumstances or causes beyond the control of GigabitNow or its third party providers, including but not limited to fire, flood, severe storms, earthquake, volcanic eruption, pandemic, or acts of war or terrorism. Subscriber must give GigabitNow notice of any such Service interruption or claim for Service credits within 30 days of the event related to the claim. Unless the Service interruption is caused by failure of GigabitNow’s internal system, no credit can be issued for the time prior to the Subscriber giving GigabitNow notice of the problem.
- Failures of Service by the local exchange or the interexchange carrier, or other third party, or by strikes, labor disturbances, Acts of God, failure to secure a Communications/Data Easement, or any event or force of nature which prevents commencement of the Service or continuation of the Service shall give both GigabitNow and the Subscriber the right to terminate this Agreement without penalty, provided 10 days written notice is first given and the problem is not cured.
- In the event of any suit or other legal action arising from or relating to this Agreement, the laws of the State of Indiana shall apply. Venue shall be in the Superior Court of Monroe County, Indiana. The prevailing party shall be entitled to recover all of its reasonable and necessary costs and expenses, including such sum as the Court may judge reasonable for attorney fees, including fees upon appeal of any judgment or ruling.
- GigabitNow shall not be liable under any circumstances to the subscriber or any third party for any incidental, special, punitive or consequential damages of any nature whatsoever, including but not limited to lost data or lost profits or revenues, regardless of the foreseeability thereof, occasioned by GigabitNow’s actions or inability to perform its obligations hereunder or arising from software or hardware malfunctions. In no event shall GigabitNow’s aggregate liability to a subscriber under the agreement or other contract, for indemnity, contribution, breach of statutory duty, contract claims, negligence, strict liability or other theory or tort, exceed $200. The existence of one or more claims shall not enlarge this limitation. GigabitNow shall have no liability for incidental, special punitive or consequential damages (including lost data or applications or lost profits or revenue) caused primarily by a 3rd party telecom connectivity provider(s), although a service credit may be available.
- Each party shall be indemnified and held harmless by the other against claims of any third party for damages, losses, or injuries arising out of the negligent or willful act or omission of the other party or its agents, servants, employees, contractors or representatives. If you use GigabitNow broadband or wireless internet service for voice services provided by another company, you realize that GigabitNow does not provide 911 or E911 emergency phone services; those must come from your phone service provider. GigabitNow will not be responsible for any personal injury or death related to 911 or E911 failures.
