The Service

1.1 Voxbit Ltd. may route your calls over any carrier or carriers that it may choose for the provision of the Service. You agree that Voxbit Ltd. may act as your agent for the purpose of notifying any carrier that Voxbit Ltd. may choose to use for the provision of the Service that your customer line identification (CLI) should be registered for use by Voxbit Ltd. You agree that Voxbit Ltd. shall have full authority to instruct the carrier on your behalf to cancel any existing CLI registration you might have with any other service provider and to substitute Voxbit Ltd. as your service provider.

1.4 Voxbit Limited services are all able to connect 999/112 emergency calls. Location information received by the emergency services will be limited to the Premises at which your telephone line is connected. This may not necessarily be the same location as that where the call is made. A power failure or a broadband connection, interruption or failure may mean that an emergency call will fail.

1.9 In order to reduce customer and our own exposure to fraud risk we reserve the right but not obligation to carry out routine penetration tests against Our customer public IP addresses.
