2.1 Your contract with us is subject to a Minimum Period
Unless you are offered and/or choose a monthly rolling package, your Service will be for a minimum commitment period lasting a certain number of months. The length of the Minimum Period is shown on your Order Confirmation, starting from your Activation Date. You must keep and pay for the Service for the whole of the agreed Minimum Period unless you or we are allowed to end this Contract earlier. If you do transfer to another package at any time during a Minimum Period, the Minimum Period for your new package will start on the date we begin providing the new package to you.
2.2 Termination During Minimum Period
If you terminate during the Minimum Period, other than where such termination is due to a breach by us or where you are cancelling during the cooling off period described in clause 2.4 below, we are entitled to charge you Early Termination Charges.
2.3 Monthly Rolling Packages
Monthly rolling packages have no Minimum Period commitment period, but you are required to give us at least 30 days’ notice that you want to cancel a monthly rolling package. (the maximum notice you can give is 180 days).
2.4 Cooling Off Period
You have the right to change your mind about purchasing our Services and may cancel the Service within the “Cooling-off Period” set by law. This is the period of 14 days, starting on the day after the receipt of your Order Confirmation. It doesn’t apply to any further Services you Order from us, or other changes you ask us to make to your Services (including where you agree to a new Minimum Period in respect of them) during the term of this Contract.
2.5 Cancellation during Cooling-Off Period
You have the right to cancel your Order before the Cooling-off Period has ended. You must put your request in writing. If you cancel this Contract before the Cooling-off Period has ended, you’ll have to pay us for any of the Services you've received up to the point when you notify us of cancellation. This may include payment for Service use, any installation fee, Router Equipment costs and any Activation Fee, which we have incurred in provisioning your Order.

The returns address can be found on our website here: www.connexin.co.uk/contact-us/
3.1 Standard installation
If there is already a working Connexin fibre socket in your Home that we can access, we will use this to connect you to our network. There may be no need for an installation engineer to carry out any work in your Home. We should be able to activate your connection as soon as everything else in your Order is ready. If you don’t already have a working Connexin fibre socket in your Home when you place your Order, an installation engineer will need to install one so you can connect to our network. When you place your Order, you may be offered an installation date by our automated booking system which may be subject to an installation fee, or our Customer Services team may contact you to agree or modify an installation date. We’ll confirm this installation by contacting you before the installation engineer comes.
3.2 Non-standard installations
These are bespoke installations which may have specific requirements such the length of the access route or surfaces which require special techniques to dig and re-instate (see the Connexin Fibre Installation Guide on our Website for more details). Non-standard installations are outside the scope of our standard installation service and may require a separate on-site visit by an installation technician who will prepare an estimate of the installation cost. We will discuss the installation cost with you before the installation can commence. If you agree to go ahead with the installation, the installation charges will be confirmed to you in writing and once the network is installed then our Service can be delivered to you according to your Order. The agreed installation charge may be taken upfront or may be taken as part of your first monthly payment.
3.3 Contact details
The installation team will have your contact details. This is so that they can contact you to let you know when they will arrive, or to deal with any unexpected problems or delays. You can contact our support team if you have a query about your installation.
3.4 Risk assessment
The technician will carry out a risk assessment before commencing work. More information about the safety requirements for installations is available in our Connexin Fibre Installation Guide. If the technician decides that it is not possible to carry out the installation safely, or if there is no one over the age of 18 present at the property, you will be informed and given the opportunity to make alternative arrangements.
3.5 Changes to your requirements
Please note that if you change your requirements, this may affect your eligibility for a standard installation. If there has been an error in assessing the criteria for your installation, which means you do not qualify for standard installation, the installation engineer will inform us and we will discuss and agree with you how to proceed – including any charges which may apply.
3.6 If the installation cannot be carried out as arranged
The installation engineer will do everything possible to achieve your installation at the arranged time, but if it is not possible to continue with the installation because of safety issues, the complexity or the materials required, the installation engineer will inform us and will ask you to confirm your acceptance that a further appointment will be required. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange access to your property, we may end the Contract.
3.7 Our rights under the Communications Act 2003
By Ordering and requesting installation of our Service, you agree that the Connexin Network Equipment placed on your property with your permission will remain, including the internal network termination point installed in your property, irrespective of whether you or anyone who purchases your property takes Services from us. You should ensure that any future purchaser of your property is made aware that the property is connected to our network and the location of Connexin Network Equipment.
3.8 Our Equipment
The Equipment remains ours or our infrastructure partners’ property and is to always be kept at your Home. You need to take good care of it all. If the Equipment we provide to you is faulty, we will repair or replace it. This will be free of charge if the fault was not caused by something which happened while the Equipment was in your care. You will return the Router Equipment at the end of our Contract or otherwise on our request. If you don’t do so within 14 days, we may suspend the supply of your Service until the Router Equipment is returned and/or we recover the costs of any non-returned Router Equipment from you. You will need to return any Router Equipment to us. The returns address can be found on our website here: https://home.connexin.co.uk/contact-us/
3.9 You must not sell or transfer our Equipment
Please note that you must not sell or transfer the Equipment to anyone else or use it outside the UK. You must promptly provide us with any information we ask for about the location of the Equipment. We may update, upgrade or replace the Equipment from time to time.
3.10 Previously Installed Equipment
If our Connexin Fibre Broadband Network Equipment is already installed at your property prior to you placing an Order for Service, we may provide you with the necessary Router Equipment to use the Service together with set-up instructions and details of how we will activate your Service.
4.1 You are the Occupier
You confirm that you are the current occupier of the Home; and either the freeholder of the Home or a tenant under a lease with legally binding permission from the freeholder to install the Equipment there. You, or a person given permission by you (must be aged 18 or over) will either be at your Home when we visit or will give us access to your Home on your behalf.
4.2 Consent to install, keep and use Equipment at your Home
You allow Connexin to install, keep, maintain and operate the Equipment at your Home. We sometimes need to advise you of any additional Equipment you need. If applicable, it is your responsibility to purchase additional Router Equipment as notified to you. Where we have recommended that you purchase additional Router Equipment for use with the Service and you have chosen not to take our recommendation, we cannot guarantee compatibility of what you instead choose, nor can we provide installation or on-going support in respect of it.
4.3 Right of Access
You agree that we, and people working for us, can enter your Home to carry out any work required to connect, maintain, change, replace or remove any Equipment that is needed for us to supply the Service you have asked for, and to inspect any Equipment related to receiving and using our Services which is kept there. If you do not allow the installation team to access your site as arranged (and you do not have a good reason for this) the installation may be cancelled and you may be charged missed engineering appointment fee as detailed in our “Price Book”.
4.4 Your co-operation
You agree to help and cooperate with us as reasonably required to connect you to our Services. We will cause as little disturbance as reasonably possible when carrying out any work at your Home.
If we have to cross your land or install, maintain and operate our Equipment at your Home, you hereby provide us with your consent do so (and you agree to do your best to obtain any such consent from another person if it is required). Before we install our Equipment and provide our Service, you will provide us with any additional consents in the form of a wayleave agreement (an agreement which gives us a right to install, maintain and operate our equipment over someone’s land) suitable to us if such additional agreement is required. If you can’t provide us with the consents and permissions we require under this clause or clause 4.1 above, we can choose to end your Contract with us.
You will not do anything, or allow anything to be done, at your Home that may damage or interfere with any Equipment or prevent the use of or easy access to it. If any such Equipment is damaged other than through fair wear and tear, we ask that you contact us to make us aware. We may charge you for it to be repaired or replaced.
4.7 Access to our Network Equipment
From time-to-time we may require access to Equipment and to perform essential maintenance, network upgrades, household re-routing or other essential work. In this event we will contact you to arrange for one of our approved network technicians to attend your Home at a time which suits you.
4.8 Installation Route and Faults
You should ensure that you are aware of the installation route of the Connexin Network Equipment across your property and draw this to the attention of any third-party doing work on your property. If you report a fault which we trace within your property boundary, we will make an appointment to carry out repairs or replace faulty Equipment but if, in the reasonable opinion of the engineer, the fault was caused by damage to the Equipment, then a charge may be made to you.
5.1 Activation Date
Once we have issued an Order Confirmation and the Service is installed, you may be charged a one-off Activation Fee, and our monthly charges will start to apply, as shown on the Order Confirmation. This is also when the Minimum Period starts.
5.2 Router Equipment
If our Connexin Network Equipment is already installed at your property prior to you placing an Order for Service, we will provide you with the necessary Router Equipment to use the Service together with set-up instructions and details of how we will activate your Service.
6 Estimated Broadband Speeds
6.1 Broadband Speeds
We have set out our estimated broadband speeds. Our estimated broadband speeds are set out on our Website when you are selecting the broadband package of your choice on the online sign-up form.
6.2 Minimum Download and Upload Speed Guarantee
We provide a minimum download speed guarantee to the router provided as part of the Router Equipment. The minimum speeds are specified below:
Minimum download and upload speed
Download speed: 41Mbps / Upload Speed: 41Mbps
Download speed: 165Mbps / Upload speed: 165Mbps
Download speed: 330Mbps / Upload speed: 330Mbps
Please note our minimum download and upload speeds only apply in relation to speeds via an Ethernet cable. You’ll need to keep your Router Equipment plugged in and switched on for us to get speed information from it. The minimum download speed guarantee does not apply to any outage periods or speed tests carried out using Wi-Fi enabled devices.
6.3 Advertised speeds
We guarantee to comply with the minimum guaranteed upload and download speeds as shown on our Website, calculated based on 95% of the advertised speeds during off peak times and 33% of the advertised speeds during peak 4 hours.
6.4 Network Speeds
The actual speed and performance of your Service will depend on various things, some of which are outside Connexin’s control. Using Wi-Fi enabled devices means that you can also connect your devices to our Services wirelessly. This makes it easier to access our Services across your devices but will mean a slower Service speed than with an Ethernet cable, due to the limitations of Wi-Fi technology.
6.5 Your right to end our Contract
We are not able to guarantee that there will be no disruption to the Services we provide due to the nature of the Services and the Equipment, including the requirement for regular maintenance. In particular, the speed of the broadband Services you receive can depend on various things such as the devices that you use to access the Services. If we identify a fault with our network, we will fix it as soon as we can.
If the download speeds to the router provided as part of the Router Equipment fall below our Minimum Download Speed Guarantee for three consecutive days (continuously or intermittently) and we are unable to fix the problem within 30 days, you may be able to leave your Contract during the Minimum Period or otherwise without paying an Early Termination Charge.
7 Our charges and your payments
7.1 How we calculate our monthly charges
The amount you pay for our Service depends on the level of Service you have Ordered. This is shown as a monthly amount, including VAT on your Order Confirmation, payable in advance. We’re flexible – your payments can be made by direct debit, credit or debit card or any other payment methods we support from time-to-time. Your first payment may include the Activation Fee (if any), charges for standard installation (if any), where applicable, charges for non-standard installations and any other charges we agree.
7.2 Minimum Period
You agree that you will be tied in to accept and pay for our Service for a Minimum Period which is measured from the Activation Date (for new Orders) or from the date of the Order Confirmation (for changes and upgrades). The Minimum Period which applies to your Order is shown on your Order Confirmation.
7.3 After the Minimum Period ends
The amount you pay for your Service will not change during the Minimum Period (hurrah!) unless you choose to purchase new or upgraded Services, in which case a new Minimum Period may apply and the amount you pay may increase (but will not decrease). For example, if you upgrade Service, a new Minimum Period will apply and the amount you pay may increase. Your Service will continue after the Minimum Period, unless you choose to end the Contract, but price changes may apply – see clause 7.4 below.
7.4 Price changes
We may review our charges at any time, but any price changes will not apply to contracts which are still within the Minimum Period. If our prices are to change, we will give you at least one month’s notice and you will be entitled to contact us to terminate our Contract if you do not agree to accept our price changes (see clause 12 below). We think this is a fair call; we hope you agree.
7.5 Monthly Usage Limits
Our Services may have monthly usage limits which are described in our Acceptable Use Policy. If you go over any of these limits, we will charge you for the extra usage or we may suspend your service. You can review your current usage at any time through our customer portal or by contacting us (details are provided on the ‘contact us’ page of our Website).
7.6 Changes and Upgrades
If you decide to change or upgrade your Service, we will tell you what your new monthly charges will be and ask you to confirm that you accept those. Any Minimum Period which applies to your new Service will commence when we confirm your new Order by sending you an Order Confirmation. The 14-day cooling off period will apply to any changes or upgrades to an existing package. This will not affect the Minimum Period of any existing package should you cancel an upgrade during the cooling off period.
Our charges are exclusive of VAT which will be shown on our bills
If the rate of VAT changes, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay and show this on your bill.
7.8 Third party charges
We are not responsible or liable for any third party charges from other organisations (such as telephone or content providers) which you may incur while using the Services. That’s their business.
7.9 If you do not pay
This is a tough one. If you do not pay us for our Services when you are supposed to and you still do not make payment within 7 days of us reminding you that payment is due, we may suspend or restrict the supply of the Service until you have paid us the outstanding amounts and may also terminate our Contract in such circumstances. We’ve got to pay our bills, too.
7.10 We can charge interest if you pay late
If you do not make any payment to us by the due date, we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% a year above the base lending rate of Barclays Bank from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount. You will also be responsible for paying all reasonable costs of debt recovery proceedings we incur to recover any debt you owe under this Contract, including fees charged by any debt collection agency we use. We know this is a lot to deal with, so please pay your bills when they’re due and avoid the hassle.
7.11 What to do if you think we have made a mistake in our charges
We’re human and we make mistakes. If you think an invoice is wrong, please contact us promptly to let us know and we will not charge you interest until we have resolved the issue. Once the dispute is resolved we will charge you interest on correctly invoiced sums from the original due date.
7.12 Credit checks
7.13 Electronic bills
We bill by email and/or through our customer portal. If you want paper or braille bills, please see the Accessibility Policy on our Website. We may charge you for paper bills, but we’ll tell you about the charge beforehand.
8 Using our Service
8.1 Acceptable use
You agree to abide by our Acceptable Use Policy. You may only use our Service for lawful purposes. You agree that we may monitor your use of our Services including data volume and type of traffic (whether authorised by statute or other legislation or otherwise) to ensure lawful use and to assist our traffic management. If you use the Service improperly, negligently, illegally, or in a way which interferes with other customers use of the Service, we may exercise our right to suspend your use of our Service (see clause 9 below) or end our contract (see clause 13 below). We may immediately remove any material placed on our servers by you or other users which breaches this Contract or is otherwise harmful to our interests or the interests of our other customers.
8.2 Your responsibility for use of our Services
You are responsible for all use of our Service, whether you gave your permission or not. For example, you are responsible for anyone at your Home or who you're responsible for (that means family, friends, tenants, visitors, etc). You are responsible for:
a) materials or content you access or put online
b) what you say or do online
c) materials or data on equipment that you connect to our Services
d) websites or pages you own, run or control using our Services
e) making sure your network and devices are properly password protected, up to date and running appropriate security software
If someone has access to your network and uses the Service, we consider them to be within your control and you will be liable for any unlawful use by them such as illegally downloading or transmitting copyright material. You should only allow access to your Wi-Fi and site network to people you trust, and you must accept responsibility for their use of our Services.
8.3 You are responsible for setting parental controls
You are responsible for setting parental controls or any other controls available for the Service and for keeping them up to date. When parental controls are on:
a) we may limit access to websites or applications we (or our supplier) believe should be blocked because they may be unsafe or unsuitable for you to view or access based on the choices you've made; and
b) websites or applications are sorted for blocking by our supplier. We aren't responsible for categorising websites or for you always being able to go to websites which aren't barred.
8.4 Residential Use only
The Service and the Equipment we provide to you under this Contract must not be used for business purposes except for home working.
8.5 Vulnerable Customers
We are committed to understanding the needs and preferences of customers in vulnerable circumstances and those with accessibility requirements and to treating all our customers fairly and with respect, including those who are in vulnerable situations. We know that there are lots of different factors and life events which may cause vulnerability, whether it be long-term or on a temporary basis. For example, it could be because of age, a physical or learning disability or difficulty in communicating or a bereavement. We will do our best to offer you the right level of help and the most appropriate products and services to suit your needs. Our customer support team will always try to identify specific needs to provide specialised assistance where it’s needed. If you are in a vulnerable situation and need extra help, please refer to the Vulnerability Policy on our Website. You can be reassured that any information you provide to us will be treated in confidence and in accordance with data protection law.
8.6 If there is a fault on the wider network
When we become aware of a network fault outside your property boundaries, we will do our best to ensure it is diagnosed and repaired as soon as possible.
8.7 We cannot guarantee fault-free performance
We’ll do everything we can to provide you with the best service possible, but due to the shared use of networks and factors outside our control such as access to third party content and services, your internet access availability and speed may vary from time to time. In addition, the speed and limitations of Wi-Fi (your router position, wall thickness, device capability etc.) may affect the actual speed that you experience.
8.8 IP addresses
Unless you arrange with us to have a static IP address, the internet address allocated to you may be varied at any time. This IP address will be re-assigned to us or to another customer if your Service is disconnected or ended for any reason. It will at all times belong to us. You may not sell or agree to transfer the internet address to any person. We grant to you a non-transferable licence to use the internet address while you receive internet access from us which will end if this Contract ends. If you want a static IP address, and there is one available, we may be able to offer you one, though you’ll have to pay an additional charge.
9 Suspending the Service
9.1 Maintenance Work
We sometimes need to carry out work to maintain, repair or upgrade our network or Services. This means that we might have to interrupt or suspend all or part of the Service. We will do everything we reasonably can to reduce the effect on you of any disruptions to our Services, but we can’t guarantee a fault-free Service at all times. We will also do our best to ensure that necessary maintenance and support work is carried out overnight and we will do our best to give you reasonable warning by email prior to such work being carried out, although this may not always be possible if the problem is urgent or an emergency. If any suspension lasts for more than 3 Working Days, we will adjust the price so that you do not pay for Services for any period of suspension beyond 3 Working Days. Any adjustment will appear as a credit on your next bill.
9.2 Suspension due to your actions
We may have to suspend the Service:
a) if you do not pay (see clause 7.97.9);
b) if you misuse our network or do not comply with our Acceptable Use Policy (see clause 8.1); or
c) if you break our contract, or any laws which apply to the use of our network.
9.3 Restoration of Service following suspension
If we suspend or end our Service, we'll tell you what you need to do to restore it. We don’t want to lose you as a customer.
9.4 Re-activation fees
We may charge you for re-activating your Service at the end of the period of suspension.
10 Our responsibility
10.1 Loss beyond our reasonable control
We are not liable to you for loss or damage you suffer which is not foreseeable or which arises from an event beyond our reasonable control. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen.
10.2 You are responsible for your equipment
We are not responsible if you are not able to use the Services because your equipment (for example, any PC, mobile device, network interface card, printer, switch, local area network or other equipment) does not work properly, is not free of any malware, is not compatible with the system, does not conform to the relevant standard or does not meet the minimum specifications or because of faults in any third party networks over which we have no responsibility. It is your responsibility to keep any of your devices that you use to access the Services free of any malware. We are not responsible for any loss or damage to your own equipment caused by the use of our Service.

This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; for breach of your legal rights as a consumer in relation to the Service including the right to receive Services which are: as described and match information we provided to you; of satisfactory quality; fit for any particular purpose made known to us; and supplied with reasonable skill and care.

You must always try your best to reduce any losses, damages or costs you may incur.
11 Changes to our contract
11.1 Your right to make changes
If you wish to make a change to the Service which you have Ordered, please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If a change is possible, we will let you know about any changes to the price of the Service, the timing of supply or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change, and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change.

11.3 More significant changes to the Service and our Contract
In addition, from time to time, we may make other more significant changes to our Services, Equipment, or to our Contract. If we do in a way that disadvantages you, we will notify you, and you may then contact us to end this Contract in accordance with clause 12 below before the changes take effect.
12 Your rights to end our Contract
12.1 You can always end your contract with us
You can end our Contract by giving 30 days’ written notice through various means such as Live Chat, the customer portal, via our Website or by writing to us, though we will hate to see you go. Further details are provided on the ‘Contact us’ page of our Website. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract. The consequences in each situation are explained below in clauses 12.2.
12.2 You may end the Contract because of something we have done or are going to do
If you are ending our Contract for a reason set out at 12.2 (a) to (d) below, the Contract will end, and we will refund you in full for any Services which have been paid for but have not been provided (if applicable). The reasons are:
a) we have told you about an upcoming significant change to your Service or these terms which disadvantages you and which you do not agree to (including a change to our prices) and you have given us notice to end the Contract;
b) we have made an error in the price or description of the Service you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed;
c) we have suspended supply of the Service for technical reasons, or notify you we are going to suspend them for technical reasons, in each case for a period of more than 30 days; or
d) we are in breach of this Contract and fail to fix the breach within the 30 days of written notice from you telling us that we are in breach of our Contract.
13 Our rights to end the contract
13.1 We may end the contract if you break it
We may end our contract at any time by writing to you if:
a) you do not make any payment to us when it is due, and you still do not make payment within 7 days of us reminding you that payment is due (see clause 7.9)
b) you fail a credit check, or the payment details such as the bank, debit or credit card details you gave us are invalid and/or incorrect;
c) if we can’t provide the Service to your Home by the expected connection date for any reason (including where you do not provide us with access to provide installation services);
d) if you use our network in breach of our Acceptable Use Policy or fail to comply with clause 8.4 (Residential use only).
e) you or anyone you authorise to deal with us on your behalf act in an unreasonable manner or in a way towards our staff or agents which we reasonably consider to be inappropriate and sufficiently serious to justify ending this Contract; or
f) you are in breach of this Contract (other than a breach covered by clause 13.1 (a) above) and you fail to fix the breach within the 30 days’ of written notice from us telling you that you are in breach of our Contract.
13.2 Costs and losses incurred due to our Termination
We don’t accept responsibility for any costs or losses you may incur for our termination under clause 13.1. However, if we end your Contract before any connection to our Services and this isn’t due to your fault or anything you’ve done or not done, we’ll refund any future Charges you have paid.
13.3 You must compensate us if you break the Contract
We may charge reasonable compensation for the costs which we may incur as a result of you breaking this Contract. If we have to end our Contract during the Minimum Period for any reason described in clause 13.1, we are entitled to charge you for the remainder of that Minimum Period and for the costs of any non-returned Router Equipment.
13.4 How we make any refunds due to you
We will make any refunds due to you as soon as possible by the method you used for payment. If you are exercising your right to cancel, then any refund due (less any deductions due to us) will be made within 30 working days of your cancellation.

14.2 Costs if you don't return the Router Equipment
You are responsible for the costs of returning any Router Equipment we have provided and for ensuring that the Router Equipment reaches us in good working order and is not damaged.

For more information, please see our Price Book for details on these charges.
14.3 Condition of the Router Equipment

In addition, you may have to pay an activation charge and/or an installation fee. If you decide that you do not wish to continue with the Services at your new address and you are within your Minimum Period then Early Termination Charges may apply up to the amount of the remaining charges for the Minimum Period.

17.1 Sometimes we may not be able to do what we’ve agreed because of things beyond our reasonable control
This could be things such as lightning, flood, severe weather, fire, explosion, terrorist activities, pandemics (including COVID-19), war, riots, damage, or vandalism to our Equipment or any apparatus we’ve installed, anything done by local or national Governments or other public authorities, strikes or other industrial action. There may be other reasons, too. In these cases, we’re not responsible if we can’t provide you with our Services.
18 Other important terms
18.1 We may transfer this contract to someone else
We may transfer our rights and obligations under this Contract to another organisation. We will always tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under this Contract.
18.2 You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else

Each of the clauses of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining clauses will remain in full force and effect.
18.5 Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later
If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this Contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you, but we continue to provide the Service, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
