You are establishing an account with us so that we may provide you with service. Our fees for service vary according to the type of service, plan and, the length of term selected. The fees for service which are in effect at the time that you establish service, will remain in effect until we notify you, by a method provided for in the section on Notices below, of a change to your account.

All service fees are due on the 1st of the month, unless specifically noted otherwise in a special contract between you and Tranquility Internet Services. You acknowledge that any and all fees paid to us are non-refundable except as stated in the section on Refunds below.

We will notify you, by a method provided for in the section on Notices, at least 30 days prior to instituting any increase in charges for services currently provided to you by us. During this 30-day period, and before the new rates become effective, you may terminate the affected service by notifying us, using a method provided for in the section on Notices, of your intention to do so. Upon receipt of such notice, we will terminate the affected service, and release you from any termination liabilities associated with the affected service. If you do not terminate the service affected by the rate increase during such 30-day period in this manner, the agreement shall continue in full force under the new prevailing rates beginning on the date of your next renewal period. All fees and charges are payable in accordance with billing terms in effect at the time the fee or charge becomes payable.


You are responsible for paying all fees and charges (plus applicable taxes) associated with use of Tranquility under your account(s). Service is generally invoiced monthly in advance of receiving services. Charges for most services are due on the 1st of each month. Excess use fees, such as usage-sensitive services (toll-free Internet access, cellular charges, etc) will be billed at the end of each month. Customer is liable for all excess use fees incurred at Customer’s site.

Tranquility is not responsible for long distance or other telephone charges incurred to access Tranquility. It is your responsibility to verify telephone access charges through the operator or business office of your telephone company regardless of any information provided by Tranquility or other third parties.

If you authorize us to do so, we will electronically debit the funds for payment from the checking account or credit card account you provided to us for such charges. If you do not authorize us to do this, an invoice administration fee may apply. You agree to pay monthly service charges until your account is terminated, as provided for in the section on Terminations below.

Tranquility credit card charges are processed on the 1st of each month. By authorizing Tranquility to charge a credit or charge card, or debit a bank account by electronic funds transfer for service fees and charges, you are authorizing Tranquility to automatically continue charging that card or debiting that account until your account is terminated as provided in this agreement. You agree that submission of credit card information to Tranquility constitutes authorization by you for Tranquility to bill the specified credit card for all fees owed by you to Tranquility. Access to our services may be restricted if your credit card processing fails due to insufficient credit, unreported replacement numbers, or unreported expiration date extensions. You are solely responsible for informing Tranquility of new expiration dates on your credit card, and for supply Tranquility with new credit card information in the event that credit card on file with Tranquility has no remaining credit.

You agree to promptly pay all invoices upon receipt, and acknowledge that any invoice which remains unpaid fifteen (15) days after the due date may result in a suspension interruption of service without notice, and a $10.00 reinstatement fee may be applied to your account. You acknowledge that any invoice which remains unpaid longer than thirty (30) days past the due date may result in an suspension interruption or termination, without notice, of your account and all services provided by us. (This may result in deletion of all of your files, including email and/or web pages.) Your account(s) continue to accrue charges while they are on suspension. You acknowledge responsibility for the account until payment in full is made. Such interruption does NOT relieve you of payment obligation. Only a written notice, in a form provided for in the Notices section below, to terminate your service signed by the authorized user relieves you of the obligation to pay your monthly account charge. If services are terminated by us, you further agree to pay all costs associated with collection, including, but not limited to, court costs and reasonable attorney’s fees, in addition to any amounts owing.

If you pay with a check and it is returned to us unpaid for any reason, you are immediately in default and subject to a returned check charge of $25.00.

You agree that at the end of the term of the Account you initially agreed to or any renewal term thereafter, Tranquility may, at its sole discretion, automatically renew such Account for an additional like term at the rates then in effect. You further agree that upon renewal of such Account, Tranquility may continue to charge your credit card or seek other form of payment from you for which you shall be responsible for. In the event that you do not wish Tranquility to automatically renew your Account, it is your sole responsibility to notify Tranquility of such intent as provided in the Termination section below.


Except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, you may change your Service (upgrade or downgrade) at any time by notifying us.  A fee may apply to such changes.  Either you or Tranquility has the right to terminate your services at any time without cause, by giving a thirty (30) day notice in writing.  There will be no penalty or other fees imposed for cancellation of Service provided they are not contained in your contract with Tranquility and that any equipment belonging to Tranquility is returned in good working order.  This thirty (30) day right to cancel does not relieve you from any contractual obligation that you may have for future months of service pursuant to a long-term service agreement.  You will continue to be billed based upon the contractual expectation of Tranquility through the end of the contract term.

The only right you have with respect to dissatisfaction with any policies, guidelines or practices of Tranquility, any change in features or functions, or any change in the amount or type of fees and charges associated with Tranquility is for you to terminate your account. If you intend to terminate any or all of your services you must notify us, as provided for below, of your intention to do so.

You acknowledge that no refunds will be made for any early termination of any service(s) under this agreement, and you agree to pay early termination liability fees if applicable to your service agreement. You agree to pay monthly service charges until your account is canceled by signed notification from you as the authorized user. Tranquility must receive signed notification, as provided for in the Notices section below, of cancellation 30 days prior to the end of the billing cycle. Amounts prepaid for service are non-refundable. You will be charged for any extra fee features you subscribe to or use during that period’s billing cycle. At the time of notification, you shall be responsible for the entire amount of the most recent statement and any excess usage charges at the time of termination. If you enrolled in a pre-paid semi-annual or annual Account plan, you may cancel your plan, but you are not eligible for a refund.

Non-usage of the service does not constitute notification of cancellation and does not result in the automatic closure of your account.

Tranquility may terminate your account, or suspend any Customer’s access to Tranquility, without notice, for conduct that Tranquility believes is a violation of this Agreement or any policies or guidelines posted by and on Tranquility, or for other conduct that Tranquility believes harmful to Tranquility or the business interests of Tranquility.
