1. About our SFOA
Our Standard Form of Agreement (‘SFOA’) applies to all telecommunications goods and services we supply.
2. Security bonds
We do not normally require a security bond but may do so eg if we reasonably consider you a credit risk. A offer or plan may also require a direct debit arrangement.
3. Kinds of charges
You must pay our charges which will be detailed in our offer or plan and may include number rental charges, call charges, usage prepayments (for prepaid plans), set up charges, fixed periodic access charges, other usage charges, connection charges and certain third party charges. Any discount, credit or rebate we may offer will be specified in the plan or offer that it applies to.
4. When and how we bill
In general, we bill fixed and known charges in advance, and usage charges in arrears. Our policy is not to late bill charges more than 160 days old. Invoices are payable within 14 days. Where there is a direct debit arrangement, we may process payment immediately Subject to the Telecommunications Consumer Protections Code (TCP Code) where it applies. Our standard billing period is monthly, and our standard way of giving you an invoice or statement is by email or a web page. Requesting a paper bill may incur a surcharge.
5. Peak / off-peak times
Any peak or off-peak times that apply to a service will be set out in the offer or plan they apply to. We do not have ‘across the board’ peak and off-peak times.
6. How to pay
We prefer, and some plans require, direct debit payment. Otherwise, you may pay by a credit card we currently accept (which may be subject to a surcharge).
7. Late payment
Late payment incurs interest at 1.5% a month. We may add a reasonable late fee and pass on any collection costs. An external collection agency may be engaged after 60 days, and add % collection fees with a minimum charge. Late payment is also a breach of your contract that may lead to cancellation. We have a financial hardship policy for genuine cases – see our web site.
8. Minimum terms
An offer or plan will specify any minimum term or notice period that applies to it. Otherwise you can cancel on 30 days written notice.
9. Lawful use of service
You must not use a service in any unlawful way.
You must comply with any Acceptable Use Policy for a service. Our AUP will be reasonable, and only target unreasonable use of a service.
11. Termination of service by us
We may terminate service: on 30 days written notice, if no fixed term applies; if you do not pay; if you materially breach your contract; if there is actual or suspected fraud involving the service; and in other circumstances set out (particularly in sections 70 and 71 of our SFOA).
12. Termination of service by you
You may terminate service: on 30 days written notice, if no fixed term applies; if service is unavailable for more than 14 days due to disasters and similar; if we change your contract conditions or pricing in some ways (and we will explain your specific termination rights if we do so); and in other circumstances set out (particularly in section 74 of our SFOA). If you terminate early without the right to do so, we may charge an Early Termination Fee as detailed in your plan or offer, or otherwise a reasonable estimate of our lost profit.
13. Contract variations
We may vary your contract conditions on reasonable notice including by email, notice on your bill or post. For consumers, this may trigger penalty-free walk-away rights. We will give you more information about those rights if they apply, and you may refer to section 37 of our SFOA. Our web site includes an up-to-date copy of our SFOA.
14. Goods warranties
Goods we supply are subject to (a) any non-excludable consumer guarantees under the Australian Consumer Law plus (b) an additional manufacturer’s warranty notified with them.
You may register a complaint by calling our Customer Service on 1300 887 862. Our internal complaints processes are in accordance with the TCP Code. You may also make a complaint to or seek assistance from the Telecommunication Industry Ombudsman, and possibly to the Consumer Affairs Office or Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.
The Customer Service Guarantee (CSG) sets specific performance standards that fixed line telephone service providers must satisfy and provides for payments to customers (with 5 or less telephone lines) in some circumstances where they are not met. For more details, see www.tio.com.au/FAQ/Csg.htm. You can waive your CSG rights. We will clearly ask you to do so where that applies.
17. Credit reporting
You authorise us to give to a credit report agency certain personal information about you. If you apply to us for personal or commercial credit, you authorise us to obtain from a credit reporting agency a credit report (which contains personal creditor information about you in relation to personal and commercial credit provided by us) and other information in relation to your commercial credit activities. You also authorise us to obtain a report containing information about your commercial activities or commercial creditworthiness from a business which provides information about the commercial creditworthiness of a person in relation to a personal credit provided by us. You authorise us to give to and obtain from credit providers information about your credit arrangements.
19. Priority services
