1. Subject of the Contract
1.1 These general contract conditions, together with the financial and technical conditions stated in the information material (the “Contract”), regulate the provision of the indoona service (the "Service"), which allows users to send messages, make calls and video calls for free and/or at reduced rates from suitable mobile devices, PCs or other devices (the "Terminal"). The Service is provided by Tiscali Italia S.p.A. with single shareholder and registered office in Località Sa Illetta, S.S. 195 Km 2.300, 09122 Cagliari, tax code and VAT reg. no. 02508100928, registered in the Chamber of Commerce of Cagliari, Economic and Administrative Index no. 204250 (hereinafter “Tiscali”).
1.2 The Service includes a software application and, if requested and available, an additional number. The use of indoona assumes, depending on the selected product, the availability by the Customer of: 1) A suitable terminal, as shown in the information material and on the website www.tiscali.it (the Website), 2) any hardware or software accessories, as stated in the information material and on the Website, 3) Tiscali SIM card or another SIM card of another active mobile communication operator, 4) Wi-Fi accessible coverage.
1.3 The Service complements the network of another mobile operator and does not replace the mobile communication service of the Customer. The Customer is aware that indoona does not prevent emergency calls being made but may not be able to provide information regarding the location of the call; in these circumstances, it is the responsibility of the Customer to communicate the place of origin of the call. With indoona some additional services and calls to some special numbers may not be available, without any liability being attributed to Tiscali. The Customer agrees that, in case of using the Service from other devices, the number corresponding to the SIM used for the registration will appear as the number of the caller.
2. Conclusion of the Contract and provision of the Service
2.1 Customers under 13 are not allowed to use the Service.
2.2 The Customer may demonstrate his/her willingness to conclude the Contract by means of distance communication or by other methods indicated by Tiscali from time to time. This demonstration of willingness constitutes an irrevocable proposal in accordance with article 1329 of the Italian Civil Code. The Customer assumes the responsibility of the accuracy and correctness of the data provided.
2.3 Tiscali reserves the right to ask the Customer to confirm, within the terms and by the methods indicated, the proposal made by electronic or telephonic means.
2.4 Tiscali will have the right not to accept the proposal and not to go ahead with the activation and provision of the Service where there is any circumstance which may constitute a risk for the regular fulfilment of the contractual obligations of the Customer or which may reasonably prevent or make the activation or the provision of the Service technically difficult, such as, for example, in the case of prolonged non-use of the Service for six months or more.
2.5The Contract will be considered complete when Tiscali informs the Customer of the acceptance of the proposal, including by electronic or telephonic means, or by activating the Service, which equates to acceptance by Tiscali of the Customer’s proposal.
3. Consideration and payment methods
3.1 The Customer undertakes to pay Tiscali what is stated in the Contract. The consideration may be of a prepaid nature or deferred and Tiscali may send an invoice.
3.2 When a pre-paid tariff plan is chosen, the Customer will make use of the Service within the limits of the pre-paid credit available. The top-up services (hereinafter the “Top-up”) may be made with a credit card on the Internet on the portal www.tiscali.it or by other methods at various times indicated by Tiscali. Additional charges are not applied for the Top-up, the execution of which will be confirmed with the sending of an sms or by another method indicated by Tiscali. If the remaining credit is not sufficient to cover the fixed costs stated in the Contract, the Service will automatically be suspended, without prejudice to the right of Tiscali to send a communication of notice. Tiscali will charge the costs not covered by the remaining credit to the following Top-up. Once 12 months have passed from the activation date (without top-ups being made) or from the date of the last top-up, Tiscali may consider the Contract terminated, with the expiry of any remaining credit. The credit will be de-activated, following notice being given, in the case of persistent non-use for more than 180 days, or in the case of no top-up being made for the same period of time. The Customer will have the right to request its activation in the ways and times indicated as obligatory in the commercial conditions, which should be referred to for further information.
3.3 The Customer, upon request, will have an automatic self-top-up service available ("Automatic Top-up"), or the possibility of using automatic top-up services with the pre-paid amount chosen being charged, to which the Customer hereby consents, upon the occurrence of a preset event. The Automatic Top-up may be activated on reaching a pre-defined minimum traffic threshold ("Automatic Top-up Threshold") or by time according to the parameters indicated by Tiscali. The execution of the Top-up service will be confirmed by the sending of an sms which confirms the top-up has been made to the mobile device of the Customer or by another method indicated by Tiscali.
3.4 Where a subscription tariff plan is chosen, the Customer undertakes to pay, in compliance with the financial conditions prepared by Tiscali, the amounts shown on the invoice within the terms set out therein. The payment must be made according to the method chosen by the Customer from those made available by Tiscali.
3.5 5 In case of non-payment, or partial payment of the consideration due, Tiscali will charge the Customer default interest in the measure equal to the legal rate increased by five percentage points and in any case not above the rate determined in accordance with Italian Law 108/96. In addition, Tiscali will have the right to suspend the provision of the Service if a term of 7 days has passed from the receipt of the written payment notice without the payment being made. If the Customer does not arrange the payment of the amount for which a reminder has been sent within 30 days of the suspension, Tiscali will have the right to terminate the Contract in accordance with article 1456 of the Italian Civil Code, without prejudice to further legal recovery action.

The scheduled interruptions of the Service for ordinary maintenance will be communicated to the Customer in advance.
