Each time that you (or anyone authorized by you) use any BAI Service, you are reaffirming your acceptance of the then-current Agreement. If you do not wish to be bound by this Agreement, BAI’s Acceptable Use Policy or Privacy Statement, you may not access or utilize any BAI Service.
THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS AN ARBITRATION PROVISION, WHICH REQUIRES THAT ANY DISPUTE BETWEEN YOU AND BAI, EXCEPT FOR NON-PAYMENT OR LATE PAYMENT AND BREACH OF ANY OBLIGATION OF CONFIDENTIALITY OR INFRINGEMENT OF ANY INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHT FOR WHICH AN INJUNCTION MAY BE SOUGHT, IS SUBJECT TO A CLASS ACTION AND JURY TRIAL WAIVER, AND MUST BE RESOLVED BY INDIVIDUAL BINDING ARBITRATION. PLEASE READ SECTION 9 OF THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY, AS IT SETS FORTH THE ARBITRATION TERMS AND LIMITS THE REMEDIES AVAILABLE TO YOU IN THE EVENT OF A DISPUTE.
1.

2. SERVICES. BAI offers internet, telephone, managed Wi-Fi, IPTV television, and satellite television services (individually the “Service;” collectively the “Services”).

Additionally, all Users must be located within the coverage area of an available access point, and utilize a device which meets the technical requirements for Wi-Fi service.
2.1(b). Performance Characteristics. Subscriber acknowledges and agrees that BAI only guarantees its internet speeds over hard-wired connections that are directly connected to a BAI approved router, and which are measured with a machine capable of testing accurate speeds. As such, Subscriber acknowledges and agrees that BAI cannot and does not guarantee internet speeds, reliability or performance to any non-BAI equipment, via any non-BAI certified cabling, or over a Wi-Fi connection, as BAI cannot account for wireless interference or other obstructions which may interfere with the signal.

Subscriber acknowledges and agrees that the introduction of physical obstructions or devices which interfere with Subscriber’s wireless connection in Subscriber’s residence and/or community is beyond BAI’s control. As such, Subscriber agrees that BAI is not responsible for any interference or the effect interfering devices may have on Subscriber’s service, speed or quality.
2.1(c). Security. Subscriber acknowledges that the transmission of information via internet and/or Wi-Fi may not be secure. Although BAI makes every effort to ensure the integrity and security of its network and systems, BAI makes no warranties or representations as to the security of Subscriber’s communications and/or transmissions. Subscriber hereby agrees that neither BAI nor any of its affiliates, subsidiaries, officers, managers, employees or agents shall be liable for any third-party’s unauthorized access or misuse of Subscriber’s account, and that Subscriber is solely responsible for such unauthorized access and/or misuse.
2.1(d). Subscriber Account. Subscriber hereby acknowledges that each account provides one connection to the Service.

BAI has no such obligation, and shall not provide the equipment, knowledge or labor to aid Subscriber in sharing their connection.

2.2(e). Blackouts.

2.3. DIRECTV SERVICE
2.3(a). Description. BAI is an authorized reseller of DirecTV’s satellite television programming.

Subscriber agrees to bear all risks associated with the use of any materials, including any reliance on the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of such materials. The fact that BAI provides a link to a particular web page is not an indication that it endorses that site’s policies or the content or products available on that site.
3.2 Intellectual Property Rights. Subscriber acknowledges that certain materials provided through the Service may be protected by copyright, trademark and other intellectual property rights. Subscriber agrees that the use of such materials is governed by all applicable laws and regulations, as well as by any further restrictions placed on such materials by their owners and licensors.

4.2. Trial or Discount Periods. Subscriber acknowledges that the Service(s) subscription may begin at a discounted price for a specified period of time, or that BAI may offer special pricing, at its discretion, for specified periods.

Subscriber acknowledges and agrees that BAI charges by the month, and not the day, and there will be no proration of days for a refund, or a credit for any unused days of the month; and thus, all cancellations will become effective as of the last day of the month. As such, Subscriber acknowledges and agrees that in order for a cancellation to be effective as of the following month, and for Subscriber to not be liable and charged the full monthly price on the first the month, Subscriber shall provide notice of cancellation, as described in Section 8.1, to BAI no later than the 25th of the month.

Subscriber acknowledges and agrees that BAI may, in its sole discretion, terminate Subscriber’s access to the Service(s) and/or Subscriber’s account at any time, with or without notice, for non-payment of any fees or charges due on Subscriber’s account, or for any violation of this Agreement or BAI’s Acceptable Use Policy. BAI hereby reserves the right to terminate or temporarily suspend an account, without warning, if BAI believes, in good faith, that such disconnection or suspension would prevent or stop a violation of this Agreement or its Acceptable Use Policy.

Subscriber, however, shall remain liable for any and all fees, if any, due under this Agreement.
8.7. Application for Service After Termination. BAI reserves the right to refuse the application or reapplication of anyone whose account has been cancelled for a violation, or anyone whom BAI suspects is acting on behalf of someone whose account has been canceled for a violation.
