The User Account of each User is usable only by the User, from the web browser of their personal computer or telephone. Sharing and mutual use of the User Account is not authorised. In particular, use of the User Account as a means of collection and/or termination is not permitted, and it is notably prohibited to use the Service to receive or make calls with a telephone switch, switchboard, an automated calling machine or telephony software. The User Account is limited to a single call by the User at a time.

To be able to make or receive calls not included in this unlimited plan, the Subscriber must buy prepaid credits, which are usable by all of the Users. These credits are valid for the duration of the Subscription, and are not reimbursable, exchangeable or transferable to another User Account.

In eligible countries, the User may have a mobile phone number reserved uniquely for interpersonal use.

It is not possible to send SMS+ messages, premium SMS messages or SMS messages to overseas destinations.

In the case of the Corporate Plan, the Subscriber may request that customer service activate or deactivate the automatic recording option.

In accordance with the laws and regulations in force, the User must inform correspondents that the telephone conversation is being recorded, and of their right to object to the recording.

If the call recording option is activated, recorded calls will be archived for a period of three (3) months, and BJT PARTNERS can in no case be held liable for these recordings, their contents, or their archival.

BJT PARTNERS guarantees the confidentiality of archived files and agrees not to disclose them to third parties, except in the case of express request by a legitimate authority, such as with a court decision.

In case of termination of the call recording option and/or Service, BJT PARTNERS will automatically delete all of the User's archived files. It is therefore the responsibility of the User and Subscriber to ensure that all files are downloaded in advance.

If the Subscriber wishes to transfer the number back to their original operator, they must inform BJT PARTNERS prior to the effective date of the number’s transfer to BJT PARTNERS’ network.

The Subscriber’s request to enact a number’s portability will be considered upon BJT PARTNERS’ recipt of all documents requested during Subscription to the RingOver Service (mandate of complete portability and signed documentation).

RingOver Numbers may be transferred over by the Subscriber under certain conditions.

Portability for the RingOver number must be requested by the Subscriber’s new operator before termination of the contract by the Subscriber.
