  9. Notices and Changes to this Agreement and our Services

(a) We may change this Agreement and/or vary any Service at any time in accordance with this clause 23.

 

(b) If we reasonably believe that a change is likely to benefit you or have no or a neutral impact on you, we may make that change without giving you prior notice.

(c) If we intend to make a change that:

(i) increases your Charges, including our standard rates, set out under a Pricing Plan; and/or

(ii) reduces the elements of a Service you are using; and/or

(iii) materially changes the terms of this Agreement (not already covered by this clause) in way that might be detrimental to you,

we will give you at least 10 working days’ notice, and where possible we will try to give you 30 days’ notice, before making that change. 

(d) If we make such a change, you can let us know that it would be detrimental to  you.  If we agree, acting reasonably and in good faith, you will be entitled to terminate and receive a refund of any credit balance in your Prepay Account at that time.

(e) In considering whether you may be affected by a change, we may consider if, and the extent to which, you have used or been charged under a Pricing Plan or for a Service to which the change relates during the three months before the date we notify you of the change.

(f) Clause 23(d) does not apply if the change arises from, or relates to, a regulatory or legislative charge outside our control (for example a tax or levy imposed by law), or is in response to a change by a third party supplier (such as another network operator).

(g) Requests for termination under clause 23(d) must be made within 30 days from the date we notify you of the change.  If you continue to use the Services after this period, you are deemed to have accepted the change.

(h) We reserve the right to make urgent changes to this Agreement if required by law or for security or technical reasons.

(i) If we are required to notify you of a change under this clause 23, we may do so by bill insert, email, voicemail, or text message. Notice of all Changes will also be posted on our website www.2degreesmobile.co.nz. Please check our website regularly for updates.

24. Transferring Rights and Responsibilities

 

 

We may transfer to someone else all or any part of our obligations under this Agreement, and assign or transfer any of our rights under or in connection with this Agreement. Any assignee or transferee will have the same rights and powers as if they were named as 2degrees.

25. Waiver

If we fail or delay to exercise any right or power under this Agreement, this will not be a waiver of that right or power. Any failure or delay will not prevent us from exercising that right or power in the future.

We will not be liable for any delay or failure to provide the Services or any other delay or failure in meeting our obligations under this Agreement to the extent that such delay or failure is caused by any event outside of our reasonable control.
