This Terms of Use Agreement sets forth the standards of use of the Fax Asia online fax service for registered members. By using the Fax.Asia website you (the Member) agree to these terms and conditions. If you do not agree to the terms and conditions of this agreement, you should immediately cease all usage of this website. We reserve the right, at any time, to modify, alter, or update the terms and conditions of this agreement without prior notice. Modifications shall become effective immediately upon being posted on this website. Your continued use of the Service after amendments are posted constitutes an acknowledgement and acceptance of the Agreement and its modifications. Except as provided in this paragraph, this Agreement may not be amended.

1. Description of Service

Fax Asia is providing Members with online fax transmission and reception services (the Services). The Services, which include any future updates, feature additions or removals, and operational changes, are subject to these terms.

2. Payment Of Fees

You agree to pay in advance for all associated fees before completion of the services for that job. A job refers to the transmission (send) or reception (receive) of a fax message. There are no activation or subscription fees. If the payment method for your Fax Asia account is by credit card and payment is not received by Fax Asia from the card issuer or its agents, you agree to pay all amounts due upon demand by Fax Asia.

We will refund your payment in the case of service errors. Most fax sending errors result from entering bad numbers, voice instead of fax numbers, no answer, or issues with the receiving fax machine such as out of paper, out of ink, canceled by receiver and so on. Since we monitor the fax queue we often issue refunds soon after the error occurs. You can contact us to alert us to any errors which require a refund. You may continue to use our system while you wait for a refund, however, please try to contact the receiver to ensure that you have the correct fax number before trying again.

All fees will be exclusive of value added (VAT), sales or other taxes, except as required by law. Fax Asia reserves the right to change fees or institute new charges for access to or use of Fax Asia Services. All fee changes will be posted on this website. You are responsible for reviewing the current usage fees for our services prior to sending or receiving a fax.

If you have any question regarding any charges that have been applied to your account, you must contact Fax Asia within 30 days of the charge date. Failure to use your account will not be deemed a basis for refusing to pay any charges submitted by Fax Asia in accordance with this Agreement.

Fax Asia reserves the right to suspend or terminate your Fax Asia account without notice upon rejection of any card charges or if your card issuer (or its agent or affiliate) seeks return of payments previously made to Fax Asia when Fax Asia believes you are liable for the charge. Such rights are in addition to and not in lieu of any other legal rights or remedies available to Fax Asia.
