When Company connects to subscriber’s TV pre-wiring, when the pre-wiring has not been installed in accordance with the National Electrical Safety Code and/or Company specifications, Company does not attest to the safety or compatibility and makes no claim as to the suitability of such pre-wiring. 

Company will not be responsible for lightning and/or surge damage.  During electrical storms, subscriber should disconnect cable and electrical connections from receiving equipment to prevent damage. 

Subscriber will be mailed a monthly statement for making monthly payments by mail or at company office in person.  Statements are printed on or about the 20th of each month. Payments are due in advance by the first of the month.  Subscriber’s first month’s service may be prorated.  If monthly payment is not received by the 10th of the month, subscriber will be assessed a $5.00 late charge per month. If payment is not received by the end of the month, services may be disconnected without notice.  Subscriber shall be responsible for all costs of collecting the delinquent account, including an attorney’s fee of 25%.  Subscriber will be responsible for monthly subscription charges until such time as subscriber notifies Company in writing that service is to be terminated. 

Subscriber acknowledges that he is subscribing to the services specified on the  Service Application to be received on the receiving equipment being connected by Company.  That he will notify Company if he changes or modifies his receiving equipment or for any reason receives CATV service not subscribed to on this agreement of addendum thereto.  Subscriber stipulates the minimum value of such unauthorized reception to be $500.00.  Subscriber shall not have more than one CATV set to each outlet without the knowledge and written approval of Company.  The subscriber shall safeguard and not disturb or allow any unauthorized person to perform any work on any part of the cable system which is on or adjacent to his premises.  In the event the subscriber or others under subscriber control have altered cable system, or tampered with a security seal, a minimum service charge of $89.00 may be assessed to subscriber.  Company may immediately terminate Subscriber’s Service and this Agreement if Subscriber or a user of Subscriber’s Service breaches this Agreement.  Company reserves the right in its sole discretion to terminate Subscriber’s Service and this Agreement at any time or to suspend (with or without notice) or terminate access to or use the Service in whole or in part.

Set Top Boxes and other property provided to subscriber shall remain the property of Company.  Subscriber agrees to pay for repair and assumes risk of loss, theft, or damage prior to return by the subscriber and stipulates the minimum value of any such property to be $500.00. 

Temporary outages are to be expected when working on system, equipment failure, vandalism, accidents involving our cable, and power failure.  Subscriber rates are figured with an outage factor calculated in and no refund or credit will be allowed for these anticipated outages.  In the event a channel is removed from service, we will make an effort to substitute similar programming.  Subscriber will notify Company office whenever there is an outage. 

Company has upgraded its transmission equipment and may require subscriber to have Company furnished set top box and/or an access card in order for all cable channels to be received.  This set top box may be necessary even though subscriber may have a so-called “cable ready” TV set. 

The terms of this Agreement are subject to amendment by the Company as procedures and market conditions may dictate.  Subscriber agrees that the terms of this Agreement as amended shall govern if Company provides subscriber with a written copy or makes available on its website, www.nelsoncable.com  of any amended forms of the Agreement and subscriber thereafter continues service.
