3.1 You acknowledge that the Cloud Voice Services are a VoIP service, and as such, they are dependent on your connection to the data network and to the telephony network. You acknowledge and agree that the Cloud Voice Services allow calls to the emergency numbers 999 and 112 and that calls to these services may fail if there is a power cut or if the broadband or telephony connection fails. This failure may be caused by reasons outside Onebill’s control.

In the event that, for any reason you do not wish Onebill to provide you with a landline and we agree to your request, we strongly recommend you that you maintain a landline for contacting the emergency services.

In the event that the users of your Cloud Voice Services have the option to work from different permanent locations, we recommend you to register and update the location information of these users with us whenever accessing the Cloud Voice Services from a new location or different locations, so that up-to-date information can be used for emergency location information.
