      3. ad-hoc / time and material charges: levied on each occasion for the provision of miscellaneous services requested by the Customer;
      4. recurring / rental charges: levied periodically, usually monthly – but in any event, as indicated in the Subscriber Agreement – in respect of the use and availability of the Services. Recurring charges are payable in advance for the first and any subsequent Rental Period on the first day of the month, with effect from the Activation Date;
      5. cancellation fee: a fee raised by Hypa to place it in the position it would have been in had the Customer fulfilled such Contract;
      6. call / usage charges: levied on the use of the Service where such use is metered. Call charges and usage charges are billed to the Customer at the end of each billing period;
      7. Anticipatory Costs: levied to recover the charges that Hypa would have billed for the duration of the Fixed Term Agreement if such Contract had run its full term; and
      8. interest on overdue amounts: any amount due by the Customer to Hypa not paid on or before the Due date indicated on the invoice shall bear Interest from the date that an Invoice became due.
    3. Billing
      1. Hypa will periodically, usually monthly, provide the Customer with a statement and an invoice for the amounts payable by the Customer. The invoice will be sent to the Customer by email.
      2. Where there is an event which prevents an accurate determination of the number of units on which the call or usage charges are determined for a billing period, the call charge or usage charges for the period in question shall be set as the average call or usage charges for the preceding 6 (six) billing periods (or lesser billing periods if the Services have been provided for a shorter time).
      3. The invoice sent by Hypa to the Customer is on the face of it, and until the contrary is proved, proof of the amount due by the Customer to Hypa. The Customer is, however, entitled to query or dispute any part of the invoice per the provisions set out under clause 15. All undisputed portions of the invoice must, however, be paid by the Due date.
      4. If Hypa determines that the disputed amount is in error, Hypa shall credit the amount incorrectly debited. Should Hypa determine and inform the Customer that the disputed amount was billed correctly, then such payment, together with interest at the Interest Rate shall be paid by no later than the Due Date of the next invoice.
    4. Payments
      1. Unless Hypa expressly agrees to the contrary in writing, invoices are payable on presentation by way of a monthly debit order or by credit card. The first invoice for Services rendered is issued on the Activation Date and payable on presentation.
      2. Invoices and statements are available for download on the Hypa Portal. Non-receipt of an invoice by the Customer shall therefore not be considered as a valid reason for late or non-payment.
      3. The Customer shall be liable and responsible for payment until payment has been received into Hypa’s bank account.
      4. The Customer shall be in breach of a Contract by cancelling any debit order without the prior written consent of Hypa or where any debit order is returned unpaid or stopped or should any charge card account, or credit card account of the Customer be rejected. In such a case, Hypa will have the right to suspend the Customer’s account until such time as arrears amounts together with interest thereon have been received and paid in full.
    5. Changes to Charges
      1. Subject to clause 11.5.4, Hypa shall be entitled to unilaterally increase any Charges, which increase will be relative to the Consumer Price Index. Increases linked to the Consumer Price Index usually are made once per year between January and April.
      2. In addition, and subject to clause 11.5.4, if there is a price increase on components of the Services beyond the control of Hypa (for example, foreign exchange fluctuations, increased pricing on third-party products or services such as software license fees, surcharges, taxes, import duties, rates or levies, increased charges from other network operators or delay caused by any instruction of the Customer), then Hypa shall be entitled to increase the Charges of the affected Services in proportion to the increase in cost.
      3. Notice of any increase in terms of clauses 11.5.1 and 11.5.2 (“Increase”) will be given to the Customer in writing.
      4. A Consumer (as defined in clause 1.3.13) will have the right to terminate a Contract without penalty or charge where any Increase renders the Service unaffordable to the Consumer, on condition that it gives Hypa 20 (twenty) Business Days’ notice of its election to cancel such Contract. Where a Consumer terminates a Contract in accordance with its rights under this clause 11.5.4, such termination will be without penalty, except where the Consumer has been given or has purchased, but not yet paid for, Subscriber Equipment. In such case the Consumer will have a legal duty to make, and Hypa will have a legal right to demand from the Consumer, full payment in respect of the Subscriber Equipment less any amounts that have already been paid to Hypa in respect thereof before such termination.
    6. Unpaid Accounts – Suspension of Services
      1. Where any amounts due to Hypa by the Customer are not paid on Due date, Hypa shall give the Customer 7 (seven) days’ notice to pay all arrears/outstanding amounts and start charging interest at the Interest Rate.
      2. If the Customer’s account remains unpaid or no written agreement is concluded to settle the arrears, Hypa shall suspend the Customer’s Services, and the suspension will stay in place until the Customer has paid all arrear amounts, interest and any applicable reconnection charges or the Contract is terminated by Hypa.
      3. If the Customer’s account is in arrears, then Hypa shall be entitled to suspend all Services linked to the Customer’s account, regardless of whether the suspended Services are delivered according to multiple Subscriber Agreements or not.
    7. Credit Limit and payment terms
      1. Hypa reserves the right to impose a monetary limit on the maximum value of Charges incurred by the Customer during each billing period. Should the Customer exceed such maximum amount, Hypa shall be entitled to suspend the Service after the Customer has been given 20 (twenty) days’ notice of such overspend and has failed to respond thereto.
      2. If Hypa and the Customer agree on payment terms that are different to those set out in clause 11.4 and Hypa has had to provide the Customer with a notice in terms of clause 11.6.1 twice in any rolling 12 calendar month period, then Hypa shall be entitled to revert to the default payment terms set out in this clause 11.
    1. In any of the circumstances set out in clause 12.3, Hypa may from time to time, and in its sole discretion:
      1. suspend the Services and/or the right to use the Managed Service Equipment; or
      2. disconnect the Managed Service Equipment from the Hypa Network.
    2. Hypa shall, where reasonably possible, give notice of any such suspension or disconnection.
    3. Hypa may implement the provisions of clause 12.1 in the following circumstances:
      1. for routine maintenance, modifications to, or unplanned maintenance of the Hypa Network and/or any other systems involved in the delivery of the Services;
      2. to mitigate against fraudulent or suspected fraudulent use of the Customer’s Service;
      3. in terms of either of clauses 11.6 or 11.7.1;
      4. because of problems on third parties’ infrastructure which have affected or disrupted the Services;
      5. where certain Services are being abused by the Customer;
      6. where the Services or Managed Service Equipment are found to contain a security risk or shortcoming which enables the Customer to exploit the Services to the detriment of Hypa;
      7. where the Customer uses Subscriber Equipment that is not approved by ICASA for such use; and
      8. where the Services are removed because of a take-down notice that Hypa is obliged to act on.
    4. The Customer accepts that:
      1. the aforegoing rights of suspension and disconnection are necessary to maintain the quality of Services, preserve the integrity of the Hypa Network, and protect the interests of both the Customer and Hypa; and
      2. it will remain liable for all Charges which may be levied by Hypa during the period of suspension or disconnection.
    5. In any of the circumstances set out in clause 12.7, Hypa may from time to time, and in its sole discretion:
      1. discontinue and/or terminate any part of a Contract; or
      2. disconnect the Managed Service Equipment from the Hypa Network.
    6. Hypa shall, where reasonably possible, give notice of any such discontinuation, termination or disconnection shall be without prejudice to any other claims or remedies which Hypa may have in terms of a Contract or in law.
    7. Hypa may implement the provisions of clause 12.5 in the following circumstances:
      1. where the Services or Managed Service Equipment have reached the end of its lifespan and are uneconomical to maintain or continue;
      2. where there has been an insignificant interest in the use of the Services;
      3. in response to an instruction from ICASA, or authority competent to issue such instruction, or in terms of the ECA or any other applicable law;
      4. if the Customer has received the Services because of fraud or misrepresentation;
      5. if the Customer makes or offers to make any arrangement or composition with its creditors or commits any act of insolvency in terms of the Insolvency Act 24 of 1936 (as amended) or any other applicable legislation;
      6. if the Customer is using or permitting the use of the Service or any element thereof for any illegal purpose or in contravention of Applicable Law;
      7. for any other reason incidental to clauses 12.7.1 to 12.7.6 inclusive.
    1. Should the Customer breach:
      1. its payment obligations for a period longer than 7 (seven) days; or
      2. any other term of a Contract and fail to rectify such breach within the notice period provided by Hypa (which shall be a reasonable period given the circumstances of the breach); then Hypa will have the right to either suspend or to cancel such Contract, without diminishing its right to claim any Anticipatory Costs or early termination penalties.
    2. Should Hypa breach any material term of a Contract, then the Customer will have the right to provide Hypa with written notice requiring Hypa to rectify the breach within a period of 20 (twenty) Business Days. Should Hypa neglect or fail to remedy such breach within such period, then the Customer may cancel the Contract without penalty.
    3. The Customer shall be liable for all costs, including legal costs on an attorney and client scale, tracing costs and collection commission, incurred by Hypa in respect of the enforcement of any obligations of the Customer in terms of a Contract.
    4. Without diminishing any other claims or remedies which Hypa may have against the Customer in terms of a Contract or at law, Hypa may terminate a Contract if the Customer has delayed the installation of the Service for longer than 3 (three) months and hold the Customer liable for Anticipatory Costs incurred by Hypa in this regard.

    Except as expressly provided under a Contract, Hypa shall not be liable to the Customer for failure to perform any obligation because of any acts of God, government restrictions or prohibitions or any other Government act or omission, any act or default of any supplier, industrial disputes, strikes, lockouts or work stoppages of any kind or any other similar or dissimilar cause, in so far as these were not foreseeable and beyond Hypa’s reasonable control. Should any event contemplated in this clause prevent the provision of uninterrupted Services for a period exceeding 4 (four) weeks, the Customer shall be entitled to terminate the affected Service without penalty.

The issue will then be logged and detailed, and the Customer will be provided with a reference number.
      3. Hypa will use its best endeavours to attend to the trouble tickets as soon as it is possible, which will depend on the complexity and nature of the problem as well as resource availability.
      4. Where the Customer has exhausted all levels of escalation and remains of the view that the matter has not been resolved to the satisfaction of the Customer, the Customer will have the right to refer the matter to ISPA, which can be done via the complaints form at

    1. After termination of a Contract for whatever reason:
      1. Hypa may, on reasonable notice, and in the Customer’s presence, enter the Customer’s premises to remove the Managed Service Equipment which is owned by Hypa; and
      2. the Customer will remain liable for, and will pay on demand, all charges and/or costs outstanding at the time of termination or accrued thereafter because of the termination.
    1. In respect of internet-based services, Hypa only provides access to the internet. Hypa does not operate or control the information, services, opinions or other content of the internet. Hypa reserves the right to take measures as may be necessary, in Hypa’s sole discretion, to ensure security and continuity of Services on the Hypa Network, including but not limited to identification and blocking or filtering of internet traffic sources which Hypa deems to pose a security risk or operational risk or a violation of its AUP. In addition, the Customer acknowledges and accepts that Hypa does not own or control other third-party networks outside of the Hypa Network, and Hypa is not responsible or liable for filtering or access restrictions imposed by such networks or for the performance (or non-performance) within such networks or within interconnection points between Hypa Network and other third-party networks.
    2. The Customer is responsible for maintaining the security of its internal network from unauthorised access through the Internet. Hypa shall not be liable for unauthorised access to the Customer’s network or other breaches of the Customer’s network security. The Customer shall remain fully responsible to Hypa for any usage billing billed to Customer’s account up to 30 (thirty) minutes after the Customer has logged an official support ticket with Hypa requesting the suspension of the Services impacted by unauthorised access to the Services.
    3. Hypa assumes no responsibility for the integrity, correctness, retention or content of electronic data transported via the Hypa Network.
    4. Subject to the provisions of clause 17.6 below, Hypa shall not be liable to the Customer or to any third party for claims that arise or occur because of the Customer’s use of the Services, whether such claim, action or damage is direct or indirect, consequential or contingent. Hypa shall not be liable for any loss of life; injury; medical expenses; support; financial loss or financial support; loss of earnings; loss of profit and/or income; loss of revenue; loss of business or goodwill; any other special damages; or any general damages, regardless of whether it was foreseeable or flowed naturally from the use of the Services.
    5. Customer indemnifies Hypa against any claim or action which may be brought by any third party arising out of Customer’s use of the Services or out of the use of the Customer’s services.
    6.

    7. The limitation on liability set out above is in addition to any limitation of liability set out elsewhere under a Contract.
    1. Hypa reserves the right to make general credit reference enquiries about the Customer and to check the correctness of the information that has been supplied. Hypa shall also be entitled to furnish any information relating to the Customer’s account and the Customer’s compliance with these conditions to any registered credit bureau.
    2. Customer agrees to and shall provide Hypa with all Personal Information and other details which Hypa is required to obtain from the Customer in terms of sections 39 or 40 of RICA.
    3. The Customer acknowledges and accepts that where the Customer does not comply with the aforegoing provisions, it will amount to a material breach by the Customer of the relevant Contract(s).
    4. Hypa will use the Customer’s Personal Information strictly in accordance with clauses 19 and 21 and the regulations promulgated in terms of section 69 of the ECA or POPIA, whichever is applicable.

    2. The reason for Hypa requiring access to the Customer’s Personal Information is to enable it and its appointed agents to:
      1. verify the identity of the Customer;
      2. perform appropriate checks and verifications of the Customer’s credit history and solvency status;
      3. conclude a contract with the Customer, fulfil its obligations and exercise its rights in terms thereof, including but limited to, the functions of administering, provisioning, billing and reconciliation, maintenance and support required in terms of the contract;

      5. enable and facilitate fraud detection and prevention;

    4. The Customer’s Personal Information will be stored electronically in a Database. For the purpose of improving the overall quality of the Service and support thereof, the aforementioned Database will be accessible to Hypa’s appointed agents and its Affiliates.
    5. Where appropriate or required by law, certain Personal Information may be retained in hard copy. Storage will be secured and audited regularly to ensure the safety and the security of the information stored therein.
    6. Once the Customer’s Personal Information is no longer required, it will be safely and securely archived for the minimum period permissible by law. Thereafter, all the Customer’s Personal Information will be permanently deleted or destroyed.
    7. In terms of section 11(3) of POPIA, the Customer has the right to object, within the prescribed manner, to the Processing of its Personal Information by Hypa. Section 11(1)(d) to (f) provides for reasonable grounds upoin which such an objection may be raised, unless legislation otherwise provides for such Processing. Upon receipt of an objection, Hypa shall be prevented from Processing such Personal Information until such time as the objection raised has been resolved and/or withdrawn by the Customer.
    8. The provisions of POPIA require that the Personal Information and related details supplied by the Customer to Hypa must be complete, accurate and up to date. It is the responsibility of the Customer to advise Hypa of any changes to its Personal Information, as and when such change arises.
    9. Subject to a request complying with the procedural requirements stipulated in section 51 Promotion of Access to Information Act 2 of 2000, the Customer has the right to request Hypa to provide it with the following information:
      1. the details of any Personal Information held by Hypa on the Customer’s behalf; and
      2. the details of how Hypa has Processed the Customer’s Personal Information.

    The Customer declares that:

    1. all Personal Information supplied to Hypa, for the purposes of enabling it to provide the Service(s) to the Customer, and related legal and operational reasons is accurate, up-to-date, and comprehensive;

    5. it understands that it may, subject to clause 20.6, withdraw the consent given in clause 21, by giving written notice to this effect to Hypa,
    6. it understands that the withdrawal of consent contemplated in clause 20.5 will not affect the lawfulness of the Processing of Personal Information that occurred before such withdrawal. In addition, the following categories of Processing will not be affected:
      1. Processing necessary to carry out actions for the conclusion or performance of this Agreement;
      2. Processing that complies with an obligation imposed upon Hypa by law;
      3. Processing that protects a legitimate interest of the Customer;
      4. Processing that is necessary for the proper performance of a public duty by a public body; or
      5. Processing that is necessary for pursuing the legitimate interest of Hypa or that of a third party to whom the information is supplied to.
    7. while Hypa has developed and implemented internal policies and procedures, designed to protect the confidentiality of the Customer’s Personal Information, the Customer acknowledges that:
      1. Hypa cannot be held responsible for the privacy policies and practices in use by any web or internet sites that may be accessed by the Customer through use of the Service(s); and

    22. GENERAL
    1. Cession, delegation, assignment

    Neither Party may cede, delegate, assign, charge, transfer or otherwise dispose of this Contract or any rights or obligations therein in whole or in part, without the written consent of the other Party.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, Hypa may assign any and all of its rights and obligations hereunder: (i) to any Hypa Affiliate (ii) to a third party pursuant to any sale or transfer of substantially all the assets or business of Hypa or a Hypa Affiliate; or (iii) to a third party pursuant to any financing, merger, or re-organisation of Hypa or a Hypa Affiliate.

    1. Variation and Amendment
      1. Subject to clause 22.3.2 and save where the right to amend a Contract has been mentioned explicitly under such Contract, neither Party may vary the terms of a Contract unless the other Party agrees to such variation and the variation is reduced to writing and signed by both Parties.
      2. Hypa shall be entitled to amend any of the provisions of the General Terms and/or Product Terms, with the exclusion of the Charges which may be amended as stipulated in clause 11.5, at any time by giving the Customer not less than 30 (thirty) days’ notice in accordance with clause 22.3.4 (the “Notice Period”), subject to any such amendment(s) only coming into effect:
        • after the expiry of the Initial Period or Renewal Period then current of any Contract; or
        • if the Contract runs on a month-to-month basis, then such amendment(s) shall become effective only upon the expiry of the Notice Period.
      3. Subject to clause 3.3.1, if the Customer objects to any amendment made in terms of clause 22.3.2, it may terminate any affected Contract(s):
        • with effect from the expiry date of the Initial Period or Renewal Period then current of such Contract(s), by giving Notice to Vox prior to such expiry date; or
        • if the Contract(s) run on a month-to-month basis, then the Customer may terminate the Service Contract(s) with immediate effect, provided that Notice of termination is given to Vox within the Notice Period.
      4. Consumer status

    Certain rights have been granted to a Customer who is a Consumer. Hypa reserves the right to withhold any of these rights and/or resultant benefits until the Customer can prove to Hypa, which proof may be in the form of a set of financial statements or an identity document, that it is a Consumer (and in the case of a right which it wants to exercise under section 14 of the CPA, that it is an Individual Consumer). Where the Customer is unable to show that it is a Consumer or Individual Consumer, Hypa reserves the right to reverse or call for a refund of any rights or benefits which are permitted under the CPA and which the Customer has unlawfully taken advantage of.

    1. Customer details and changes thereto

    The Customer agrees to supply Hypa with such information, documentation and signatures that Hypa may reasonably require at the time that a Contract is concluded, to give effect to the payment arrangements of such Contract.

For clarity, where it appears from the context of multiple Subscriber Agreements concluded between the Parties that they are intended to be read as one contract, then the Subscriber Agreements shall not be deemed to constitute separate and divisible contracts, and in such event, conflicting provisions of General Terms shall be resolved with the ordinary rules of interpretation.

    1. Indulgences

    No indulgence, leniency or extension of time which either Party (“the Grantor”) may grant or show to the other, shall in any way prejudice the Grantor or preclude the Grantor from exercising any of its rights in the future. Any indulgence or the relaxing of the provisions of a Contract by the Grantor shall not prejudice the right of the grantor to insist on the strict compliance by the defaulting Party of its undertakings and obligations in terms of such Contract.

    1. Severability
