The service is provided by Mi PA (UK) Ltd, Universal Square, Devonshire Street North, Manchester, M12 6JH (Company No: ) and its suppliers (“we”/”our”/”us”).
In order to be able to use any part of Mi PA you are required to complete Mi PA’s registration process to obtain a Mi PA Account. You agree to keep your Mi PA account password secret at all times and to inform us and change it if you believe that another person has become aware of it. You are solely responsible for all use or misuse of your username and password, and any losses or damages arising from such use or misuse. You confirm that all information supplied by you to us is current, complete and accurate in all respects and you agree to notify us immediately of any changes to this information. If you have (or we believe that you have) provided false information or have (or we believe that you have) failed to notify us of any changes then we shall have the right to terminate your Mi PA Account (see Termination below).
Any free trial offered by the company is at the company’s discretion and can be withdrawn at any time prior or during a free trial period. The free trial is for the call answering and message taking service. The free trial does allow for calls to be transferred to mobile and landlines to a maximum cost of £20.00. This limit can be reduced or withdrawn at any time at the sole discretion of the company. A fair usage policy is in place for all trials.
Mi PA offers registered users the following services:
Access to, and use of the Dashboard is available free of charge to registered members after any agreed set up fee, activation fee and any monthly subscription is debited from your credit/debit card.
As a registered member you will have your calls answered personally by Mi PA. Your telephone number is your bespoke communication line and your call answering details can be amended at any time. All of your messages can also be sent to your personal mobile by SMS. You can also divert any land line or mobile number to your telephone number.
Billing is charged on a “Per Call basis” for all tariffs.
When committing to a bundle tariff the first month call package charge will be invoiced and charged immediately.
You will be liable for call charges that exceed the package quota at the quoted rate.
If for whatever reason you are not entirely satisfied with the service and wish to cancel we require 30 day’s notice from your next billing date to cancel. We may suspend or terminate your use of Mi PA until you have made all payments due. Written notice shall only be deemed acceptable if it is emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or posted to the Mi PA, Universal Square, Devonshire Street North, Manchester, M12 6JH.
Our Call Packages also has a surcharge for opting for calls to be handled during the hours of 7am-9pm weekday and weekends from 8pm Friday to 8am-6pm. If calls are received during this period and the option has not been paid for then the company has the right under this tariff to charge the Out of hours calls fee surcharge from the last billing date. All charges and tariffs may be advertised on a daily rate equivalent but shall be chargeable on a monthly basis based simply on a 30-day month regardless of the actual number of days in the month.
