Services of Lycamobile
2.1
Lycamobile will provide the Services to you using its own Network and the Networks of one or more telecommunications operators. The network availability is 97 % (calculated over a calendar year). Occasionally any of these Networks may be unavailable for maintenance, modifications, upgrades, emergencies or to protect the security of the Network. At these times the Services may be temporarily unavailable and the aforementioned outages are not regarded when calculating the availability.
2.2
Mobile telephony is a form of wireless communication and operates on the basis of the transmission of radio and signal frequencies. The transmission of these radio and signal frequencies may be affected by congestion on the Network due to the number of calls or messages or the amount of data being sent and received.
2.3
The transmission of the radio and signal frequencies may also be affected by the location of the base stations, obstacles such as buildings or underpasses, and by external factors such as geographic or atmospheric conditions. The Services may also be affected by the quality of the GSM mobile telephone chosen and used by you.
2.4
The Roaming Services are subject to the roaming contracts and service quality levels that have been agreed between other national and international telecommunications operators. Lycamobile does not have any control over the contracts or service quality levels agreed between these telecommunications operators.
2.5
For the reasons described above, Lycamobile does not warrant or guarantee that the Services will be uninterrupted or error free (in terms of Network availability, quality or coverage) in all locations at all times, or that the Services will be suitable for your specific requirements, or that the Services will be completely secure against unauthorised interception.
2.6
Lycamobile will endeavour to keep any disruption to the Services to a minimum; however Lycamobile will not be liable to you for any loss, damage or inconvenience incurred by you as a result of any disruption to the Services for the reasons described above. For the avoidance of doubt this comes not to effect in the case of deliberate action.
2.7
Associated with your SIM Card is the PIN code (personal identification number) and the PUK code (personal unlocking key). The PIN and PUK codes must never be kept together. You will take every necessary precaution to preserve the secrecy of your PIN and PUK codes. You will be liable for any fraudulent or improper use of your SIM Card or Account that results from the intentional or accidental disclosure of your PIN or PUK code or the transfer of your SIM Card to another person.
2.8
Our Customer Services Department can supply details of the other mobile operators we have roaming or porting arrangements with from time-to-time.
3.
Conclusion of the contract: framework contract and further contracts on individual use
3.1
Lycamobile contracts with its customers on the basis of a framework contract. This framework contract gives the customer the right to use Lycamobile's services. The framework contract is concluded only if the customer subscribes to Lycamobile's services correctly on their website and Lycamobile accepts potential customer's subscription and contractual offer by sending the access data or in some other appropriate manner. If the customer did not purchase any top up credit or the top up credit has expired, the framework contract has no fixed term and can be terminated by either side at any time without any notice period.
3.2
The use of the single services which are subject to a service charge like outgoing calls or other services is only possible if a valid framework contract between the customer and Lycamobile exists ("the customer has signed in to the services") and the parties additionally contract for each single service which is subject to a charge (e.g. call, text message, data connection individually. This individual contract on the basis of the framework contract is concluded by the customer requests the service (contractual offer) and Lycamobile delivers the service (acceptance of contractual offer). Each single contract terminates with the service being delivered. Therefore, the contractual relationship resembles the "closed call by call" standard known in landline telephone contract. The special characteristic of the present contractual relationship lies in the manner how the services are charged and paid in advance by the customer by purchasing top up credit ("Prepaid").
3.3
To be entitled to use of the services which are subject to a charge within the limits of the framework contract, the customer has to purchase a top up credit in advance which allows to use the fee-based services in the specific situation while the cost of the service depends on the price list which applies at that moment. Those charges will be deducted from the current top up credit. (For details on billing and validity period please see numbers 4 and 5)
3.4
The currently valid tariffs for the single services which are subject to a charge are published by Lycamobile on the website. The customer has the responsibility to self-dependently keep himself informed about the current tariffs that apply. Alternatively Lycamobile can as subject to its own discretion develop a procedure where the customer is being informed about current fees which apply at the start of the call by making an announcement or in any other appropriate way (e.g. via text message). As long as Lycamobile does not implement such a procedure, the customer has the responsibility to self-dependently keep updated on the current fees.
4.
SIM CARD, account and deactivation
4.1
The SIM Card is used by inserting it into a compatible GSM mobile telephone. When the SIM Card has been inserted and you have registered or activated your Account, you will have access to, and be able to use, the Services.
4.2
The SIM Card remains the exclusive property of Lycamobile. You must retain the SIM Card and not lose or damage the SIM Card. Lycamobile will only replace a SIM Card free of charge where it is found to be defective by reason of faulty workmanship or design. Lycamobile may charge you for a replacement SIM Card when you are responsible for the loss or damage of your original SIM Card or when someone has stolen your original SIM Card. It is your responsibility to promptly inform Lycamobile of any loss, damage or theft to your SIM Card, or any fraudulent or improper use of your SIM Card. You are informed that once you start using the Services or the Top Up Services you will lose any right to cancel this Agreement under distance selling legislation (see down below for details).
4.3
If you do not use your SIM Card to make a voice call, or send a message or data, or if you do not purchase a top-up using the Top-Up Services, for a period of one hundred and eighty (180) days from the date you registered or activated your Account or your last use of the Services (whichever is later), Lycamobile will contact you by SMS or e-mail advising you that your SIM Card will be deactivated. Lycamobile will then provide you with an additional thirty (30) days to make a voice call, send a message or data, or purchase a top-up using the Top-Up Services.
4.4
If you make a voice call, send a message or data, or purchase a top-up using the Top-Up Services within the additional thirty (30) day period, your SIM Card will remain active and you will be able to access and use the Services.
4.5
If you do not make a voice call, send a message or data, or purchase a top-up using the Top-Up Services within the additional thirty (30) day period, your SIM Card will be deactivated. If the SIM Card is deactivated, your specific telephone number will be reallocated to another Customer unless you advise us in sufficient time that you wish to port your number to a new operator.
4.6
From 5 August 2014 any new top up credit shall expire ninety [90] days from the date of top-up or recharge. For the avoidance of doubt, this does not apply to the existing credit balance in your Account before 5 August 2014.
5.
Top-up Services
5.1
The Services are prepaid services. You are required to Top Up in advance so your Account is in credit. As Charges are incurred they will be deducted from the amount credited to your Account. No bill or invoice or statement will be issued to You. You may check your credit balance from time-to-time by calling our Customer Services Department.

  • You may purchase a Top-Up Voucher at any participating retail outlet and activate the PIN code by following the dialling instructions on the Top-Up Voucher. You may also activate the PIN code for a Top-Up Voucher purchased at a participating retail outlet by using the Online Top-Up Service.
  • You may register your details with Lycamobile, purchase a Top-Up Voucher online and activate the PIN Code by using the Online Top-Up service.
  • You may register your details with Lycamobile and subscribe to "My Lycamobile" and the Auto Top-Up Facility.

5.3
If you top-up your Account within one hundred and eighty (180) days from the date you registered or activated your Account or your last use of the Services (whichever is later), the amount of the top-up credit you purchased will be added to the credit balance in your Account at the time of your top-up.
5.4
The credit balance in your Account may only be used for the Services. As a general rule, when decrementing credit against charges for use of the Services, Lycamobile will first apply credit paid-for by the customer before it applies any free credit which may have been given to the customer for promotional or other purposes. If you request, on termination of this Agreement, we will refund any unused paid-for credit (but not in any circumstances any free credit).
5.5
Interest is not payable on any credit balance in your Account. Each time you use the Services (or someone else uses your GSM mobile telephone) the credit balance in your Account will be reduced for the voice call, message or data you are making or sending according to the destination and the current Charges.

For the avoidance of doubt, any Top Up Voucher shall expire on the date stated on the Voucher (if any).

Liability
8.1
As far as our liability is towards you, as our end user, to pay your damages is not based on an deliberate act (intention) the maximum compensation is limited to 12.500 € per end user. If one act or one incident, which is not based on an deliberate act (intention), causes damages of more than one end user, then sum of all compensations, which is in general limited to € 12.500 per end user, is again limited to 10 million Euros.

If your single compensation is being limited like that because the whole sum of compensations is limited to less than 12.500 Euros, then the reduction is in proportion with the reduction of the sum of all compensation to the maximum sum (10 million Euros).

However these rules do not apply to the liability caused by the compensation for the delay of payment for damages.

Furthermore Lycamobile is not responsible for any damage or loss incurred by you where such damage or loss is indirect or not a reasonably foreseeable result of a breach by us; nor where we are not at fault or to the extent you have contributed to the damage or loss.

In the event your SIM Card is lost or stolen, or you believe your SIM Card is being used in a fraudulent or improper manner by another person, you must promptly contact the Customer Services Department. Lycamobile will then be able to block the use of your SIM Card. Your liability can only be excluded if you prove that you are not responsible for the use. Typically the following applies: If you fail to promptly contact the Customer Services Department about the loss of the Sim-Card, you will be liable for all Charges relating to the use of the SIM Card until you do notify us, regardless of whether the Charges were incurred by you or someone else as far as this usage can be attributed to you.
8.3
Lycamobile is not responsible for the failure of any retail outlet to properly activate your SIM Card or Top-Up Voucher or process any payment you made. In these cases, you should contact the retail outlet where you obtained your SIM Card or purchased your Top-Up Voucher and request a refund.
