5. Transmission and Capacity Limitations. You understand and acknowledge that satellite communications service is provided subject to the availability of capacity on the applicable Network which is limited by the space technology involved and availability of assigned radio spectrum and the applicable satellite footprint. Satellite communications service may become unavailable or limited because of capacity limitations or emergency preemption by governmental authorities who have jurisdiction over the Network, and may be interrupted or curtailed by modifications, upgrades, repairs, and similar activities of the Network Provider. Each Network Provider has reserved the right to allocate satellite capacity among all uses of the Network. Satellite communications service is subject to transmission and reception limitations caused by: (1) the user’s location, including topographical conditions, whether man-made or natural, that obstruct the line of transmission between the user and the Network satellites; (2) the condition of the Network’s equipment; (3) the condition of your Network Terminal; (4) acts of God, (5) weather conditions, atmospheric conditions (i.e., space debris, solar flares, and other atmospheric anomalies or disturbances), magnetic interference, environmental and other like conditions. In particular, due to the technical nature of data setups and the inherent sophistication of data transmission through a variety of operating systems, RSS makes no representation as to the success of data transmission or calls through any Network. Customer agrees that all data transmission or calls attempts regardless of ultimate successful transmission and termination will be paid for and no credits will be given in the event of dispute of this nature. Along with potential incorrect use (i.e.: next to a building/obstruction), the Globalstar and Iridium systems (consisting of low earth orbiting satellite constellations) have inherent flaws and anomalies that can create dropped calls of either voice or data nature. Dropped calls will not be credited.
6. Satellite Network Service Only. You understand and acknowledge that the Network Providers do not provide terrestrial, cellular or PCS service or any service other than satellite communications service. In the event that you elect to utilize any service in conjunction with Network Services, you understand and acknowledge that neither RSS nor any Network Provider is responsible for, and neither warrants nor represents the quality or availability of, such service and expressly disclaims any warranty regarding the interoperability of such service with satellite communications service.
7. Privacy Limitations. You understand that because Network Services involve radio technology, voice and data communications transmitted over the Network may not be completely private. You understand that calls to emergency referral services, such as “911,” are typically recorded and consents to the recording of such calls. Also, you consent to the Network Provider’s monitoring and recording your calls to the Network Provider in order to ensure the quality of Network Services. 8. Abuse and Fraudulent Use. You are responsible for taking care of the Equipment and ensuring that it is used responsibly. Network Service may not be used (1) to make foul or profane expressions, to impersonate another person with fraudulent or malicious intent, or to call another person so frequently or at such times of the day or in any manner so as to annoy, abuse, threaten or harass, or (2) for any purpose in violation of law, or (3) in any manner which interferes unreasonably with the use of satellite communications service by any other customer or with RSS’s reasonable ability to provide service to others. If you fails to adhere to these rules of satellite communications service, RSS may terminate this Agreement in accordance with Section 21 below.
9. Regulatory Authority Affecting this Agreement. You agree that RSS may amend this Agreement upon written notice to you to comply with FCC or other U.S. or foreign Authority requirements or other reasons, and such amendment(s) does not constitute a repudiation or breach of this Agreement. You agree to abide by such amended terms and requirements.
10. Telephone Numbers/Fax Numbers/Fax Email. A telephone number may not be used in more than one Network Terminal. You have no property right or other continuing right in any assigned telephone/fax number or email address, and none can be acquired by usage or otherwise. RSS reserves the right to assign, designate, or change any such telephone/fax numbers or email address when reasonably necessary in the conduct of its business. RSS may reassign the telephone/fax numbers or email address formerly held by you immediately upon the deactivation of your Network Terminal. or Fax Services.
11. Designation of Authorized User(s). You may notify RSS at any time of your designation of authorized user(s) on your account. By so doing, you give RSS permission (1) to provide account information and services directly to such user(s) to the extent such information and services would otherwise be available to you, and (2) to make changes to your account as such user(s) may request from time to time. You agree to accept financial responsibility for all decisions and changes made by such user(s) relating to your account. You may remove an authorized user(s) from the account at any time by notifying RSS in writing.

Thereafter, you shall not use the telephone number assigned to your Network Terminal until you give RSS notice that such Network Terminal is in the your possession and you request restoration of the ability to use such telephone number.
