Pilot Voice Emergency Services (911) Policy
Use of Pilot Voice services is subject to this Pilot Voice Emergency Services (911) Policy (“Policy”). This Policy is subject to, and made a part of, the Master Services Agreement (“MSA”) and Voice Services Addendum entered into by the Parties. Capitalized terms used but not defined herein have the meaning given them in the MSA or Voice Services Addendum, as the case may be.
Pilot Voice Services, such as Hosted Voice and Digital Voice, provide access to emergency calling services, allowing most Voice Service end-users to access either basic 911 or Enhanced 911 (“E911”) service. Pilot Voice end-users using a registered IP desk phone, Pilot Voice mobile application softphone with active cellular connectivity, or ATA in conjunction with an analog desk phone can dial 911 directly from those devices/endpoints, in accordance with the terms below. 911 CANNOT BE DIALED FROM THE PILOT VOICE WEB-BASED SOFTPHONE.
Emergency calling services through Pilot works differently than you may have experienced using traditional wireline or wireless telephones. Your access may differ depending on your location or the device you are using.
Registering Your Location
You must register the address of the physical location where you will use each registered endpoint with Pilot Voice immediately upon activation of your endpoint. This is your “Registered Address”. For endpoints sharing the same physical location, only one 911 registration is required for those endpoints. You or your Account Administrator will be asked to provide accurate Registered Addresses for all registered endpoints at the time of your Pilot Voice on-boarding . You must use Pilot Voice only at the Registered Address provided for the applicable registered endpoint. IF YOU MOVE A REGISTERED ENDPOINT, YOU MUST IMMEDIATELY UPDATE THE REGISTERED ADDRESS WITH THE NEW PHYSICAL LOCATION OF THE DEVICE WITH PILOT BY CONTACTING OUR SUPPORT TEAMS AT (855) 578-5500 OR SUPPORT@PILOTFIBER.COM. IF YOU DO NOT UPDATE THE REGISTERED ADDRESS, ANY 911 CALLS MADE FROM THE DEVICE MAY BE SENT TO THE WRONG EMERGENCY RESPONSE CENTER AND WILL NOT TRANSMIT YOUR CURRENT LOCATION INFORMATION TO EMERGENCY RESPONDERS, DELAYING EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE TO YOU. It may take up to several hours for the address update to take effect. Customers are solely responsible for ensuring that an accurate and up-to-date Registered Address is maintained for each registered endpoint, and that its end-users are aware of how the Registered Address can be updated.
Pilot Voice 911 service will not function (i) in the event of an Internet or power outage; (ii) if your Pilot Voice service loses its connection to the Internet; (iii), with respect to only the Pilot Voice mobile application, if you do not have mobile service, as the Pilot Voice mobile application cannot send emergency calls over Wi-Fi access, (iv) when using the Pilot Voice web-based softphone or (v) outside of the continental United States and Canada. It is also possible that network congestion may delay or prevent completion of any 911 call. You will not be able to complete a 911 call if you move to a physical location outside the country in which your Pilot Voice endpoints are registered, or if you are dialing from a phone number that is not a Canadian or United States based number.
USERS UNCOMFORTABLE WITH ANY OF THESE LIMITATIONS SHOULD MAINTAIN AN ALTERNATE MEANS OF REACHING 911, SUCH AS MOBILE TELEPHONE OR TRADITIONAL LANDLINE SERVICE.
How It Works
When you dial 911 using Pilot Voice, the Pilot Voice phone number and the Registered Address you have provided is sent to the local emergency center serving your location. In some areas, emergency operators have access to this information; however, in areas where only basic 911 service is available, the emergency operator answering the call may not be able to see your Pilot Voice telephone number or your Registered Address. You should always be prepared to provide the emergency operator with your Pilot Voice telephone number and Registered Address in case the call is dropped or disconnected. If you are unable to speak, the emergency operator may not be able to send help to your location and/or call you back should the call be disconnected. Pilot does not control whether or not the emergency operator receives your telephone number and Registered Address.
In some cases, 911 calls dialed from your Pilot Voice registered device cannot be directed to the local emergency response center, and are instead directed to a National Emergency Call Center (the “NECC”). That might happen if there is a problem validating a Registered Address, if the Registered Address is an international location, or if the Registered Address is in an area that is not covered by the landline 911 network. 911 calls that are directed to the NECC may not include your Pilot Voice telephone number or your registered address. Trained operators at the NECC will request your name, location, and telephone number and attempt to reach emergency responders in your local area. Until you give the operator your phone number, and location, he/she may not be able to call you back or dispatch help to your location if the call is dropped or disconnected.
Pilot Voice Mobile Application
Calls to 911 placed through the Pilot Voice mobile application on a smartphone are automatically routed to the native dialer on the smartphone, and the call will be handled by your wireless service provider if wireless service is available. If your wireless service is unavailable, the 911 call cannot be placed. The Pilot Voice mobile application cannot place emergency calls over Wi-Fi access. Emergency dialing is not available through the Pilot Voice mobile application on tablets or other mobile devices without a native phone dialer and a wireless service plan.
In some areas, emergency operators are able to receive text messages sent to 911. Texts to 911 by Pilot Voice users relying on the Pilot Voice mobile application are automatically directed to the native dialer on the mobile phone, allowing you to send the text through your wireless service provider, if available. If wireless service is unavailable, the text cannot be sent. Text-to-911 is not available on tablets or other mobile devices without a native phone dialer and a wireless service subscription.
Notification of Employees, Guests, or Other Users
Customers must notify any employees, contractors, guests, or persons who may place calls using the Services or may be present at the physical location where Pilot Voice service may be used, of the limitations of Pilot Voice 911 Service. Customer must affix a Pilot-provided sticker to each device used with Pilot Voice, reminding end-users to keep their 911 Registered Address up to date.
Disclaimer of Liability for Emergency Call Response
Your use, and use by your employees, guests and other third parties, of Pilot Voice 911 Services are subject to the limitations described herein. The availability of certain features, such as transmission of a Registered Address or your Pilot Voice telephone number, depends on whether local emergency response centers support those features, and other factors outside of Pilot’s control. Pilot relies on qualified third parties to assist us in routing 911 calls and text messages to local emergency response centers and to the NECC. Pilot does not have control over local emergency response centers, the NECC, emergency responders, or other third parties. Pilot disclaims all responsibility for the conduct of local emergency response centers, the NECC, third parties engaged by Customer to facilitate address updates, and all other third parties involved in the provision of emergency response services. To the extent permitted by any applicable law, you hereby release, discharge, and hold harmless Pilot from and against any and all liability relating to or arising from any acts or omissions of such third parties or other third parties involved in the handling of or response to any emergency or 911 call.CUSTOMER INDEMNIFIES AND HOLDS HARMLESS PILOT, AND ANY THIRD-PARTY PROVIDER(S) FROM ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, LOSSES, DAMAGES, FINES, OR PENALTIES ARISING OUT OF: (I) CUSTOMER OR ITS END USER’S PROVISION TO PILOT OF INCORRECT INFORMATION, INCLUDING PHYSICAL ADDRESSES, OR FAILURE TO UPDATE A REGISTERED ADDRESS; (II) CUSTOMER’S FAILURE TO PROPERLY NOTIFY ANY PERSON WHO MAY PLACE CALLS USING THE SERVICES OF THE LIMITATIONS SET FORTH IN THIS POLICY; (III) THE ABSENCE, FAILURE, OR OUTAGE OF EMERGENCY SERVICE DIALING USING THE SERVICES FOR ANY REASON; AND (IV) THE INABILITY OF ANY END USER TO BE ABLE TO DIAL 911 OR ACCESS EMERGENCY SERVICE PERSONNEL FOR ANY REASON.
Pilot Voice Telephone Number Policy
Use of Pilot Voice services is subject to this Pilot Voice Telephone Number Policy (“Policy”). This Policy is subject to, and made a part of, the Master Services Agreement (“MSA”) and Voice Services Addendum entered into by the Parties. Capitalized terms used but not defined herein have the meaning given them in the MSA or Voice Services Addendum.
Customer may obtain new,US-based, 10-digit telephone numbers (also known as DIDs) (“Number(s)”) from Pilot for use with Pilot Voice, or may port existing 10-digit telephone numbers to Pilot Voice, subject to the terms below.
New Telephone Number Availability
Pilot makes new Numbers available for use with voice and fax services, which Customer may select for assignment to the Customer’s Pilot Account (“Account”). Pilot’s listing of a Number as available may be erroneous and does not constitute a representation or guarantee that such Number is actually available for such assignment. In the event a chosen Number is not actually available, Pilot may remove such Number from an Account and supply a different Number.
The porting of phone numbers, which is the transferring of telephone numbers from one telecommunications provider to another, into or out of a Pilot Voice Account requires Customer’s provision of specific and detailed information toPilot and/or other service providers, and Customer must follow all procedures imposed by other service providers or Pilot in order to comply with law an dindustry standards.
Number Port-In: A number port-in is defined as a Customer transferring a telephone number owned or leased by it to Pilot Voice from another telecommunications service provider. In this case, Pilot gathers information from the Customer that it uses to request the telephone number from the Customer’s existing provider.
Number Port-Out: A number port-out is defined as a Customer transferring a telephone number owned or leased by it to another telecommunications service provider from Pilot Voice. In this case, the other provider gathers information from Customer that it uses to request the telephone number from Pilot.
Number Port-In Request Procedures
Customer must keep its requested Number active with its current provider until the confirmation of a successful port in order to port a number from that provider to Pilot. In order to request the porting of aNumber into an Account, the Account Administrator, must make a request to Pilot’s support teams by calling (855) 578-5500, emailing email@example.com, or, during the service registration process, by filling out the initial port-request document provided by Pilot following the placing of a service order and provide all information requested as part of the number port-in request process (which may include without limitation providing an executed Letter of Agency) or as otherwise requested by Pilot. Porting requests are generally processed between the hours of 8:30 am – 5:00 pm EST, Monday-Friday. After-hours porting requests must be approved by Pilot and will be processed the following day, in accordance with industry practice. Some aspects of porting Numbers into a Pilot Voice Account rely on the provider from whom the Number is being requested. Therefore, the completion of any Number port request may depend on factors outside of Pilot’s control, including delays caused by Customer and/or other service providers.
Unauthorized Number Port-Outs
Pilot is required by law to comply with any valid porting request. At times, phone numbers may be ported out accidentally from an Account due to acts or omissions of third parties, and it may be difficult or impossible for Pilot to: (i) prevent such port-outs: (ii) retrieve numbers ported out of an Account; or (iii) port such numbers back into an Account. Pilot has no responsibility or liability due to such accidental, unauthorized port-outs.
Accurate Porting Information
Customer represents and warrants that all information provided in connection with any request to port in or port out numbers to or from Pilot(including without limitation any information or representations in any Letter of Agency) by Customer or any party acting on its behalf or direction will be true, accurate, and up-to-date.
Customer Compliance With Porting Laws
The porting of numbers is subject to telecommunications and other laws and may be subject to third-party terms and conditions. Customer, and/or any party acting on Customer’s behalf, shall not: (i) violate any applicable law or engage in any fraudulent or deceptive conduct in its porting-related requests or activities; (ii) engage in or facilitate “slamming” or the porting out of any telephone or facsimile Number or change or attempt to change any party’s telephony service provider without first obtaining the proper, requisite consents and authorizations; or (iii) violate contractual or other obligations to service providers or other third parties.
Release of Numbers
In the event of Account termination or cancellation, all Numbers associated with the Account which have not previously been ported to another provider may be released. The cancellation of individual Digital Voice lines or Hosted Voice seats may result in the release of the associated numbers if those numbers have not previously been ported to another provider or provisioned with another line or seat on the Account Customer is solely responsible for working with its new third-party provider to port out any numbers prior to termination or cancellation of Customer’s Account or Services, or any individual line or seat.
Number Publication by Customer
All new or ported Number assignments are provisional until verified by Pilot and confirmed by Customer. Customer shall not publicize, list, or communicate any Number that is assigned to the Account, or purchase or invest in any materials or media reflecting any such Number unless and until Customer has confirmed that such Number is active and functioning as desired. Acceptable methods of confirmation include test calling such Number from a non-Pilot service plan and verifying that the fees and charges that will be incurred in connection with use of such Number are acceptable to Customer.
