Definitions and Framework
The “Service” is available for purchase exclusively using the RTK Mobile applications on an authorized Device. The Service may not be available in all areas and on all devices and is subject to these T&C’s.
These T&C’s, including the provisions regarding the personal data protection referenced herein (collectively, the “Agreement”), set forth the T&C’s that apply to your use of the Service. “Customer”, “You” and “your” mean the customer of the Service defined above, and “RTK Mobile”, “we”, “our”, and “us” include RTKMobile LLC and any of its affiliates involved in providing You with the Service. Your enrollment in, use of or payment for the Service, confirms your unconditional acceptance and agreement to the T&C’s set forth in this Agreement available on www.rtkmobile.com. If You do not agree to be bound by this Agreement, You may not use the Service.
This Agreement may change. We may modify or amend this Agreement from time to time. Unless otherwise provided in this Agreement, all such modifications or amendments shall be effective immediately upon posting on www.rtkmobile.com (the “Website”). When we make a significant change to this Agreement, we will endeavor to separately notify You about this change. YOUR CONTINUED USE OF THE SERVICE AFTER THE POSTING ON THE WEBSITE WILL BE CONCLUSIVELY DEEMED TO BE ACCEPTANCE BY YOU OF ANY SUCH MODIFICATIONS OR AMENDMENTS.
By purchasing the Service, You agree that You are authorized to use the Service and are responsible for paying for the Service per these T&C’s.
The Service consists in providing prepaid cellular Data Plans (allowance of data valid for a certain duration) to enable connecting your Device to the Internet (the “Data Plans”).
The countries in which You can use the Data Plans are listed where You browse through available offers. Available offers may change from time to time and may depend on the country You are currently in.
To support the Service, RTK Mobile has entered into agreement with various cellular carriers (mobile operators) around the world to access their cellular networks (collectively referred to as the “Mobile Network”).
In providing the Service RTK Mobile is not providing You with a phone number, and is not providing You the ability to place or receive voice telephone calls (including calls to 911 and other emergency numbers) or send or receive SMS or text messages.
Subject to the conditions of this Agreement, we grant You a revocable, non-exclusive, non-sub-licensable, license to use the Service that is not transferable for use on another device, subject to the terms of and for the duration of this Agreement.
This Agreement will commence, and a binding contract will exist between RTK Mobile and the Customer when the Customer starts using the Service. It will continue until terminated as set forth herein.
All services, including any related offers and promotions may be subject to specific additional T&C’s. Please check our Website regularly as these T&C’s are updated from time to time.
You will remain responsible to us under this Agreement for the actions of any other person You allow to use the Services on your account.
RTK Mobile will provide the Service in accordance with the Agreement, and as per the applicable Data Plan description, and from the date the Customer starts using the Service or purchases such Data Plan.
We will try to make sure that the Service is available to You wherever possible; however both availability and quality of the Service may be affected by things we cannot control such as physical obstructions, atmospheric conditions and outages on the Mobile Network (the infrastructure, software and hardware enabling a cellular carrier / mobile operator to support wireless internet services offered to subscribers) where such outages and their remedies are not within our control.
We or our mobile operator partners (any company operating a mobile internet network, which owns or controls all the elements necessary to sell and deliver mobile internet services) may from time to time need to carry out upgrade or maintenance work on the Mobile Network which may affect the availability and/or quality of the Service. We will endeavor to keep such disruption to a minimum, but this may not always be within our control.
We shall provide the Service with reasonable skill and care, and we shall use reasonable efforts to make the Service available to You. If You experience problems with our Service or suspect fraudulent activity on your account, please contact the Customer Service immediately.
We may offer certain dealers a complimentary subscription if their customers maintain active subscriptions. However, this complimentary subscription is not guaranteed for life and may be subject to change or cancellation at our discretion.
We may from time to time and without notice, change the Service in order to comply with safety, regulatory, statutory and other requirements. We will try to ensure that this does not materially affect the scope of the Service.
You must use the Service in accordance with this Agreement and any other reasonable instructions we or the Customer Service give You from time to time.
The SIM card does not have a PIN code by default. YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR CONTROLLING THE ACCESS TO YOUR SIM CARD, AND YOU AGREE TO PAY FOR THE SERVICE WHETHER OR NOT YOU HAVE AUTHORIZED SUCH USE. WE SHALL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR FRAUDULENT USE OF YOUR SIM CARD.
If You believe that your SIM card is being used in an unauthorized manner, You must contact the Customer Service immediately so that the appropriate modifications can be made to your account.
The SIM card is attributed to the first Device owner. The first Device owner remains liable for its use at any time unless RTK Mobile has received a proof of the change of the Device’s ownership.
The Service is intended to be used for web browsing, email, uploading and downloading applications, data and content to and from the Internet or third-party applications, and using applications and content without excessively contributing to network congestion.
You will not use the Service for any unlawful, abusive or fraudulent purpose, including, for example, using the Service in a way that (1) interferes with our ability to provide Service to You or other customers; (2) abuses any bonus or promotional program; or (3) avoids your obligation to pay for the Service.
You will not use the Service in a way that compromises network security or capacity, excessively and disproportionately contributes to network congestion, adversely impacts network service levels or legitimate data flows, degrades network performance, causes harm to the network or other customers.
You will not take any action that would, in RTK Mobile’s sole determination, interfere with the Service or other RTK Mobile customers, infringe the rights of any third party, or otherwise constitute objectionable conduct. If we have reasons to believe that You or someone else using your SIM card is abusing the Service or otherwise breaching this Agreement, we may immediately suspend, restrict, or cancel your SIM card and your ability to use the Service without notice. In addition, we reserve the right, at our sole discretion and for any reason, to (a) suspend, restrict, modify or terminate your SIM card and your access to and use of the Service and/or (b) refuse to allow You to buy any new Data Plans. You are responsible for all charges incurred on your account whether or not they are incurred by You personally except those incurred after You have notified the Customer Service of the loss or theft of your SIM card, and the Customer Service has acknowledged it in writing.
If You are under 18 years old, your parent or legal guardian must also read and agree to be bound by these T&C’s. You agree that You are responsible for paying the charges to use the Service, or if You are under 18, that You have permission to use the Service from the adult responsible for paying the charges.
You acknowledge that RTK Mobile may immediately suspend certain services in order to comply with applicable laws. You are solely responsible for the content You transmit via the Service. We will not be responsible for any content sent or received by You.
You are responsible for updating the Customer Service as soon as reasonably possible of any changes to your contact details.
In order to use the Service You must have a valid Data Plan. For a Data Plan to be valid, it needs to be neither exhausted, nor expired and it needs to be valid in the country You are currently in. You can check whether You have a valid Data Plan via the RTK Mobile website.
When You are using the Service and your Data Plan runs out (i.e. exhausted or expired), the access to Internet will continue but you will incur overage charges.
Your Data Plan will be debited per your usage of the Service (consuming your data allowance).
Data Plan allowances may only be used for our Service on your Device, and You will not be entitled to receive any cash refund for any remaining credit or allowance.
Taxes and Other Charges
You must pay all taxes, fees, surcharges and other charges that we bill You for the Service, unless You can show documentation satisfactory to us that You are exempt. We will not provide advance notice of changes to taxes, fees, surcharges and other charges, except as required by applicable law.
When may we suspend or disconnect your Service
