Each User is only permitted to own 1 account and must keep its login credentials confidential and not share them with anyone else. The Customer is responsible for its Users’ compliance with this Agreement and actions taken through their accounts. The Customer will promptly notify NUITEQ if it becomes aware of any compromise of its Users’ login credentials.

the frequence of using the calling functionality;
length of calls;
