You are responsible for your own end material (such as handsets, plug adaptors and chargers) and its proper configuration and installation, in compliance with any regulations and applicable instructions by TravelSim or the manufacturer. You are also responsible for all preparation to install the Service, such as preparing and inserting SIM cards (interface cards) and setting adequate protocols. You agree to follow all instructions to properly insert the SIM card into your mobile phone. You have no right to be assigned or keep a particular phone number. TravelSim has the right to cancel or change any phone number or other address element it may have assigned to you without compensation, if required for operational or technical reasons or as a result of government regulations or new partnerships, or if they will expire after (one) year of inactivity. TravelSim does not provide mobile phone number or SIM card portability. Any and all rights attached to a phone number assigned by TravelSim to you remain vested in TravelSim. All SIM cards remain the property of TravelSim, which reserves the rights to alter and develop its content as well as claim its return.
TravelSim offers mobile phone and SIM card users a high degree of coverage via the GSM mobile network. Coverage depends on the network, technical and operational capabilities of the roaming partner. Gaps in coverage may nevertheless be encountered even in areas that are designated as covered, particularly inside buildings or remote areas. Lists of roaming partners are available on the Site. TravelSim will update this information when additional service becomes available. TravelSim will make every effort to provide a high level of availability for its mobile network. However, Travelsim is unable to guarantee continuous, trouble-free operation of its mobile network or certain transmission times or capacities (SMS, for example). TravelSim reserves the right to service its mobile network at any time, which may result in temporary disruptions. No representations or guarantees are made with regard to availability, quality, operation or support for voice or data communication on third-party networks or with third-party lines.
TravelSim reserves the right, for any reason, in its sole discretion, to terminate, suspend or change any aspect of the Site or the Services including but not limited to products, services, content, features, or hours of availability. TravelSim may impose limits on certain features of the Site or the Services, or restrict your access to part or all of the Site or the Services without notice or penalty.
You agree to pay all charges for requested Services in US Dollars or Euros. For Services that require pre-payment, you agree to pre-pay for the Service by debiting your credit card the selected amount or making the Paypal payment. The cost of the Service you use will be debited against the prepaid credit using the then current prices for the Service. In the event your charges exceed your pre-paid credit, you agree to pay any amounts owed to TravelSim within seven (7) days from TravelSim’s request or TravelSim may immediately suspend the Services. You agree to pay for all charges associated with your account, whether or not the use of your PIN was authorized by you. The charges will be deemed to be correct if they accurately reflect the technical records created by a correctly programmed system. You can request an extract of the Service records in writing (by mail or email) from Customer Service within forty-five (45) days after the disputed charge. TravelSim reserves the right to change the prices for the Services at any time. The current applicable prices, which are quoted in US Dollars or Euros, may be found on the Site or by calling Customer Service.
Any deliberate off-network usage of the service (an attempt to circumvent the normal operation of the service in order to avoid paying for use) is prohibited. Any off-network usage that is recorded will incur a separate surcharge (on top of standard rates) as follows: $3 per text message; $3 per minute to make calls and receive calls. This surcharge may not be billed for up to sixty (60) days after actual usage.

Until you notify TravelSim of such issues with your PIN, you are responsible for all charges associated with your PIN.
TravelSim will immediately terminate any account that it believes, in its sole discretion, is transmitting or is otherwise connected with any spam or other unsolicited bulk email. In addition to TravelSim’s other rights or remedies, you agree to pay TravelSim the sum of five dollars (USD$5) for each piece of spam or unsolicited bulk email transmitted from or otherwise connected with your account (which is TravelSim’s genuine estimate of the damage it would suffer) or TravelSim’s actual damages, whichever is greater.
