The Term shall automatically renew for successive periods equal in length to the original Term (each, a “Renewal Term”), unless either Party gives written notice to the other Party of non-renewal at least 90 days before the end of the applicable term.

10. 911 Policy. 101VOICE provides Voice over IP based communications services that support access to emergency services numbers where Emergency-Enabled Service functions differently than traditional telephone service.  Emergency-Enabled Service and some of its limitations are described below. If Customer is uncomfortable with the limitations of the 911 service, Customer should consider using an alternative means of access to traditional 911 or E911 services. In some cases, 911 calls dialed from 101VOICE service may not 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 Customer telephone number or Customer registered address. Trained operators at the NECC will request caller’s name, location, and telephone number and attempt to reach emergency responders in caller’s local area. Until caller gives the operator their phone number, and location, he/she may not be able to call back or dispatch help to the correct location if the call is dropped or disconnected.  101VOICE 911 service will not function in the event of an Internet or power outage, or if Customer broadband, ISP, or 101VOICE service is terminated or is otherwise not available.  It is possible that network congestion may delay or prevent completion of a 911 call. 101VOICE 911 service may not be available if Customer is dialing from a 101VOICE number that is not a Canadian or United States number. The 101VOICE Mobile Application and/or softphone Application is not a substitute for wired or mobile 911 system.  101VOICE disclaims and Customer waives any liability if 911 is unavailable.  See associated 101VOICE policy named “911 Emergency Service Calling” which requires Customer review, located at http://www.101VOICE.com/legal/911
