We intend that these Terms and Conditions apply only to a Subscription entered by you as a Consumer. If this is not the case, you must tell us, so that we can provide you with a different contract with terms which are more appropriate for you and which might, in some respects, be better for you, e.g. by giving you rights as a business.

In any case, regardless of events beyond our control, if we do not deliver the Services on time, you can require us to reduce the Fees or charges by an appropriate amount (including the right to receive a refund for anything already paid above the reduced amount). The amount of the reduction can, where appropriate, be up to the full amount of the Fees or charges.

This is a distance contract (as defined below) which has the cancellation rights (Cancellation Rights) set out below. These Cancellation Rights, however, do not apply, to a contract for the following goods and services (with no others) in the following circumstances: accommodation, transport of goods, vehicle rental services, catering or services related to leisure activities, if the contract provides for a specific date or period of performance; goods that are made to your specifications or are clearly personalised; goods which are liable to deteriorate or expire rapidly.
Effects of cancellation in the cancellation period
Except as set out below, if you cancel this Subscription, we will reimburse to you, minus the cost of us providing the service, payments received from you, excluding the costs of delivery. Payment for Services commenced during the cancellation period
where a service is supplied (being part of the Service) before the end of the cancellation period in response to your express request to do so, you must pay an amount for the supply of the service for the period for which it is supplied, ending with the time when we are informed of your decision to cancel the Subscription. This amount is in proportion to what has been supplied in comparison with the full coverage of the Subscription. This amount is to be calculated based on the total price agreed in the Subscription or, if the total price were to be excessive, on the basis of the market value of the service that has been supplied, calculated by comparing prices for equivalent services supplied by other traders. You will bear no cost for supply of that service, in full or in part, in this cancellation period if that service is not supplied in response to such a request.
Deduction for Goods supplied
If you cancel within 14 days as is your right to do so, any minutes that you have used under the package supplied will be charged to you at a rate of 6p per minute and the cost to set the service up. Any usage will be payable by you within 1 month of commencing the Subscription. If you cancel after 14 days, you will be charged the full months payment.
For the purposes of these Cancellation Rights, these words have the following meanings:
distance contract means a contract concluded between a trader and a consumer under an organised distance sales or service-provision scheme without the simultaneous physical presence of the trader and the consumer, with the exclusive use of one or more means of distance communication up to and including the time at which the contract is concluded;
sales contract means a contract under which a trader transfers or agrees to transfer the ownership of goods to a consumer and the consumer pays or agrees to pay the price, including any contract that has both goods and services as its object.
Conformity and Guarantee
We have a legal duty to supply the Goods in conformity with the Subscription and will not have conformed if it does not meet the following obligation.
Upon delivery, the Goods will:
- be of satisfactory quality.
- be reasonably fit for any purpose for which you buy the Goods which, before the Subscription is made, you made known to us (unless you do not actually rely, or it is unreasonable for you to rely, on our skill and judgment) and be fit for any purpose held out by us or set out in the Subscription; and conform to their description.
- We will supply the Services with reasonable skill and care.
- We will provide the following after-sales service: Monitoring of account and renewal reminders.
In relation to the Services, anything we say or write to you, or anything someone else says or writes to you on our behalf, about us or about the Services, is a term of the Subscription (which we must comply with) if you take it into account when deciding to enter this Subscription, or when making any decision about the Services after entering into this Contract. Anything you consider is subject to anything that qualified it and was said or written to you by us or on behalf of us on the same occasion, and any change to it that has been expressly agreed between us (before entering this Contract or later). Duration, termination and suspension the Subscription continues as long as it takes us to perform the Services.
Either you or we may terminate the Contract or suspend the Services at any time by a written notice of termination or suspension to the other if that other:
commits a serious breach, or series of breaches resulting in a serious breach, of the Subscription and the breach either cannot be fixed or is not fixed within 30 days of the written notice; or is subject to any step towards its bankruptcy or liquidation.
On termination of the Subscription for any reason, any of our respective remaining rights and liabilities will not be affected.
Successors and our sub-contractors
Either party can transfer the benefit of this Subscription to someone else and will remain liable to the other for its obligations under the Subscription. This requires written notification to either party. The Supplier will be liable for the acts of any sub-contractors who it chooses to help perform its duties.
Circumstances beyond the control of either party
In the event of any failure by a party because of something beyond its reasonable control:
the party will advise the other party as soon as reasonably practicable; and the party’s obligations will be suspended so far as is reasonable, provided that that party will act reasonably, and the party will not be liable for any failure which it could not reasonably avoid, but this will not affect the Customer’s above rights relating to delivery (and the right to cancel).
The Supplier does not exclude liability for: (i) any fraudulent act or omission; or (ii) death or personal injury caused by negligence or breach of the Supplier’s other legal obligations. Subject to this, we are not liable for (i) loss which was not reasonably foreseeable to both parties at the time when the Contract was made, or (ii) loss (e.g. loss of profit) to your business, trade, craft or profession which would not be suffered by a Consumer – because we believe you are not buying the Services and Goods wholly or mainly for your business, trade, craft or profession.
Governing law, jurisdiction and complaints
The Subscription (including any non-contractual matters) is governed by the law of Scotland.
Disputes can be submitted to the jurisdiction of the courts of Scotland or, where the Customer lives in England, Wales or Northern Ireland the courts of respectively England, Wale or Northern Ireland.
We try to avoid any dispute, so we deal with complaints as follows: If a dispute occurs customers should contact us to find a solution. We will aim to respond with an appropriate solution within 5 working days.
We may change these Terms or the Prime Service, or any part of it, at any time: for legal or regulatory reasons; for security reasons; to enhance existing features or add additional features to the Service; to reflect advancements in technology; to make reasonable technical adjustments to the Service; and to ensure the ongoing operability of the Service.
If we make changes, we will inform you in due form and time and remind you of your rights. You will be able not to accept these changes and you will keep the possibility to cancel your Prison Calls Subscription at any time.
Regardless of any changes to these Terms or the Service, any increase in the applicable Subscription fee will not apply before the end of your current Subscription period.
If any change is found invalid or for any reason unenforceable, that change is severable and does not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining changes or conditions
Use of Minutes
If you purchase a plan and go over the subscribed minutes, you will be charged 5p per minute. With our Enhanced Unlimited Plan, you will not be charged as this is unlimited.
On our comparison table, the prices are taken from the comparison companies’ website on 01.05.2020. The prices quoted are the prices they advertise at checkout.
As the subscription is with the person who purchases the plan, the price per minute on the price features are calculated by the price the customer pays divided by the amount of minutes.
