2.2 REGISTRATION FOR USING STELLAR SERVICES AND GLOBBLE MEDIA

The customer must fill a simple form to use GLOBBLE MEDIA directly from the web browser under https://www.stellar.tc. To register for our services, the customer has to provide the following information:
– First and Last Name
– An address (billing address/shipping address)
– An email address
– A mobile phone number
Furthermore, a copy of an official document like passport, driving licence, ID, may be requested depending upon the country where the customer places the order.

2.3 STELLAR ENGAGEMENTS

Stellar shall use reasonable endeavours to provide the customer with the services and to ensure the security of the customer’s communications at all times. However, due to the nature of mobile technology, it is impossible to provide an uninterrupted, fault-free service.

Stellar shall in particular not be liable, or otherwise legally responsible, where access to the Network is interrupted or limited due to a suspension (provided that this is temporary only); or downtimes of public telecommunication or power facilities; or special local conditions (e.g. underground use). Stellar's Network Partner may suspend Services: (i) in order to carry out maintenance or testing of the Network; (ii) during any technical failure of the Network, (iii) when it is necessary to safeguard the security and integrity of the Network or to reduce the incidence of fraud; (iv) where it identifies Artificially Inflated Traffic; or (iv) due to Emergency Planning Measures. Stellar shall endeavour to keep all such suspensions to a minimum and shall give Customer notice of such suspensions where reasonably practicable. It is however noted that GLOBBLE MEDIA service includes fully unthrottled capacity and offers the best-effort network priority in case of network congestion.

2.4 CUSTOMER ENGAGEMENTS

The customer shall not:

a) use any Equipment (GLOBBLE MEDIA) or Services for any purpose that is abusive, illegal or fraudulent; or

b) do anything that causes the Network to be impaired or damaged.

2.4.1 The customer agrees to the rental terms as stated in this agreement. Except as otherwise provided therein, the following shall apply:

GLOBBLE MEDIA will be delivered in accordance with Sec.4. Upon delivery, the customer shall promptly inspect and test GLOBBLE MEDIA. The customer shall promptly notify Stellar of any non-conformities detected upon such inspection or during later use. The Customer shall at its own cost:

a) assume all responsibilities as the possessor and user of the Equipment;

b) hold Stellar harmless of (a) any public or private cost, fees, levies and/or taxes, arising from holding and/or using the Equipment, and (b) any claims asserted by third parties, including public authorities, in connection with its use, operation or holding of the Equipment, except to the extent that such claims are imputable to Stellar;

Risks with respect to regular wear and tear, and/or damage or loss caused by Force Majeure or acts of third parties which are not imputable to the customer, will be borne by Stellar, and Stellar will promptly repair any such damage which materially impairs the function of the Equipment and/or replace Equipment lost due to such circumstances.

2.4.2 Upon termination of this agreement, the customer shall promptly - even if at its own cost and risk - return the Equipment to a delivery address within France specified by Stellar.
