HomeFi Terms of Service

Last Updated: September 11, 2023

Please read this HomeFi Terms of Service (these “Terms of Service”, or this “Agreement”) carefully as they contain important information regarding your rights and obligations. These Terms of Service establish a contractual relationship between you, the customer (“you”, “your”, “yourself”, or “User(s)”, “Customer(s)”, or “Subscriber(s)”) and HomeFi (we”, “us”, “our, or “HomeFi”). By using HomeFi’s products and/or services, you or anyone accessing the products and/or services are agreeing to be bound by these Terms of Service, HomeFi’s Privacy Policy, HomeFi’s Return Policy, and any and all links or references to other policies on our website that may be incorporated herein.

If a term is not defined in these Terms of Service, you hereby agree that it shall be construed in accordance with customary usage in the wireless communication and technology industry. The words “shall” and “must” are mandatory and refer to required actions taken by you or HomeFi. The word “should” expresses an expectation on behalf of you or HomeFi but does not represent a mandatory requirement. The Portable Wireless 4G Device is hereby referred to as (the “Hotspot”) and the LTE Home Internet Router is hereby referred to as (the “Router”; collectively with the Hotspot, herein referred to as the “Devices”). Merchandise that is not associated with the Devices are hereby referred to as (the “Accessories”). Further, please note, the terms (“Monthly Data Plan”) and (“Subscription”) (each as defined in Section 8 below) are hereby used interchangeably. 

BEFORE YOU PURCHASE AND/OR USE THE PRODUCTS AND/OR SERVICES, PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF SERVICE CAREFULLY. BY PURCHASING AND/OR USING THE PRODUCTS AND/OR SERVICES, YOU ARE BOUND BY AND HAVE BECOME A PARTY TO THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE AND/OR USE THE PRODUCTS AND/OR SERVICES. HOMEFI RESERVES THE RIGHT TO REFUSE PRODUCTS AND/OR SERVICES TO ANYONE FOR ANY REASON AT ANY TIME.

THIS AGREEMENT MAY ONLY BE SUPERSEDED BY A SEPARATE, SIGNED WRITTEN AGREEMENT WITH HOMEFI THAT EXPRESSLY REFERENCES AND SUPERSEDES THIS AGREEMENT (A “SUPERSEDING AGREEMENT”).

 

  1. Fair Use Policy

Our goal at HomeFi is to provide high-speed and high-bandwidth internet access to our entire community of Users. To ensure we optimize our data network to provide the best speeds to our Customers, we practice an industry standard Fair Use Policy, consistent with most wireless communication providers and broadband company policies for data usage. Coverage is not guaranteed in all locations in the United States. In order to ensure Fair Use for all of our Customers, because our network is a limited resource, Customers who utilize a high amount of data will experience reduced network speeds, based on location and service. We strongly recommend disabling apps and features that consume data in the background, including cloud syncing, large system updates, auto-backups, auto-app updates, and avoid extended use of video streaming, gaming, and other online activities that consume large amounts of data.

  1. Fees & Charges

As it relates to the Monthly Data Plan, (as defined below) HomeFi provides a prepaid subscription service. Subscribers are required to pay upfront for their chosen Monthly Data Plans (associated links, which can be found further below) and will be charged according to the Monthly Data Plan selected. The following fees and charges apply to all HomeFi Monthly Data Plans:

  • Monthly Data Plan: Our Monthly Data Plan billing cycles consist of two different cycles for Users, depending on the date of their initial purchase.
    1. If Initial Purchase Was Made Prior to April 1, 2023: If your initial purchase was made prior to April 1, 2023, you received notice that your future billing cycles would be migrated to the first (1st) of every month.
      1. If You Did Not Object: If you did not object to this notice, your billing cycle was migrated to the first (1st) of the month billing Cycle. Upon such migration, you received a prorated credit, based on the difference between thirty (30) days and days unused in your initial billing Cycle. Please note, by not responding to this notice, you agree that you did not object to the respective billing migration.
      2. If You Did Object: If you objected to the notice, your initial thirty (30) day billing cycle continued.  
    2. If initial Purchase Was Made on or after April 1, 2023: If you purchased a Monthly Data Plan on or after April 1, 2023, your initial thirty (30) day billing Cycle continues.

Please note, the above is subject to change at any time by HomeFi. If a change is to occur to our billing Cycles, you shall receive sufficient notice of our billing migration and you will have the opportunity to object to any future billing migration.

As Users who objected the notice are billed on a separate cycle from all other Users, a “Cycle” shall refer to thirty (30) days from the date of your initial purchase or every first (1st) of the month, regardless of the days that make up the month. A HomeFi Internet Plan Monthly Renewal (as reference on our respective website or landing page for the respective products and/or services) (a “Subscription” or “Monthly Data Plan”) will be charged prepaid and automatically, Cycle-to-Cycle, to your payment method (credit card or debit card). Please note, HomeFi may adjust your billing cycle, upon prior sufficient notice, whether by email, call, or text. The cost of the Monthly Data Plan varies according to the amount of data that you have purchased. Subscribers can choose from various Monthly Data Plans offered by HomeFi. HomeFi offers four (4) different Monthly Data Plans (which may be subject to change) with various associated data availability amounts. The Monthly Data Plans for our Hotspot can be found here and the Monthly Data Plans for our Router can be found here. Please note, Subscriptions may be subject to change on a case-by-case basis in association with your Payment Plan (as described in Subsection (g) of this Section).

  • Service Fees: The Service Fee is a small fee, charged every Cycle, for the cost of HomeFi powering your Device(s) and keeping it active every Cycle. The service fee is charged on top of the Monthly Data Plan, which covers the selected data amount you purchased. A monthly Service Fee of $3.50 will be applied to all HomeFi Subscriptions. Please note, Service Fees may change on a case-by-case basis in association with your Payment Plan.
  • Duty / VAT / Tax Charges: Depending on the location of where your purchased products are being shipped to, you may be subject and responsible for the associated and respective Duty / VAT / Tax Charges.
  • Device Cost: Customers who ordered Device(s) before September 11, 2023 received it for no charge and must return the Devices upon cancellation or termination of your service and may be subject to a Device Recovery Fee as outlined in Subsection (f) of this Section. Customers who ordered Devices after September 11, 2023 shall not receive the Devices for no charge, but are subject to the following:
  1. Customers must rent/lease the Device(s). You will be billed the monthly rental/lease rate quoted to you at the time of purchase alongside your selected Monthly Data Plan. Rent/lease rates may be subject to applicable taxes. All rental/lease payments shall be due alongside payments for your selected Monthly Data Plan. In the event of cancellation, either by you or by us, or termination of your service, you must return your rented/leased Device(s) and may be subject to a Device Recovery Fee as outlined in Subsection (f) of this Section. Rent/lease prices may be subject to change upon prior notice to Customers.
  1. The Device(s) are the property of HomeFi. Renting/leasing the Device(s) does NOT give you title and ownership to the Devices. You may not assign, rent, or transfer the Device(s) or your rights or obligations as it relates to the Device(s) under these Terms of Service to another person or entity. You agree to not mishandle, abuse, misuse, or improperly store or operate the Device(s).

  • Device Recovery Fee: You may be subject to a Device Recovery Fee upon cancellation or termination of your Monthly Data Plan. PLEASE NOTE, UPON CANCELLATION OR TERMINATION OF YOUR MONTHLY DATA PLAN, EITHER INITIATED BY YOU OR BY US, THE DEVICES MUST BE RETURNED TO US. IF THE DEVICES ARE NOT RETURNED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE HOMEFI RETURN POLICY, YOU MAY BE SUBJECT TO FEES INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, A $130.00 DEVICE RECOVERY FEE FOR THE HOTSPOT AND/OR A $200.00 DEVICE RECOVERY FEE FOR THE ROUTER AND/OR A $300 DEVICE RECOVERY FEE FOR THE EDGE ROUTER.
