    Welcome to iSAT. iSAT provides its service to you, subject to the following Terms of Service ("TOS"), which may be updated by us from time to time without notice to you. You can review the most current version of the TOS. In addition, when using particular iSAT services, you and iSAT shall be subject to any posted guidelines or rules applicable to such services which may be posted from time to time. All such guidelines or rules are hereby incorporated by reference into the TOS.

  2. Description Of Service
    iSAT currently provides users with access to a rich collection of on-line resources including various communications tools, online forums, shopping services, personalized content and branded programming through its network of properties (the "Service"). Unless stated otherwise, any new features that augments or enhances the current Service, including the release of new iSAT properties, shall be subject to the TOS. You understand and agree that the Service is provided as is and that iSAT assumes no responsibility for the timeliness, deletion, miss-delivery or failure to store any user communications or personalization settings.

  3. Your Registration Obligations
    In consideration of your use of the Service, you agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Service's registration form (such information being the "Registration Data") and (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or iSAT has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, iSAT has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service (or any portion thereof).

  4. iSAT Privacy Policy
    Registration Data and other information about you is subject to our Privacy Policy. For more information, see our full Privacy Policy

  5. Member Account, Password & Security
    You will receive a password and account designation upon completion of the Service's registration process. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of the password and account, and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account. You agree to immediately notify iSAT of any unauthorized use of your password, account or any other breach of security.

  6. Duplicate Login Policy
    As a subscriber you may not use the iSAT dialup account issued to you on more than one computer or communication device simultaneously.

    Concurrent user logins are not allowed and if multiple logins are noticed for the same connection, an email will be sent to that particular user describing the duplicate login session. The user's account is then subject to a R10 (vat excl) duplication login charge per incident.

    It is the user's responsibility to ensure that their dialup account is used in the appropriate manner. iSAT reserves the right to suspend a subscription should multiple occurrences of duplicate logins occur

  7. Payment Of Account - South African Bank Account Holders
    Payment of your account will be made by debit order from your bank account, as per the bank details you have supplied upon registration. If your bank details change after registration, you need to contact iSAT and we will fax or email you a "Change of Details" form. Until iSAT confirms that your "Change of Details" form has been processed, you should assume that the next debit order will be processed against your original bank account details.

    The debit order is processed on the 1st of each month, except when the 1st is a Sunday or public holiday. In this case the debit order will be processed on the next working day or Saturday.

    Payments for services rendered are in advance, which means that the first debit order amount will include  the full and/or pro rata amount for the current month as well as the full charge for the following month. Details of the amount charged are clearly indicated on the monthly invoice/statement.

    Please note: we do not process debit orders on statements that are in total less than R40.00.  If your monthly subscription is less than R40.00 per month, the debit order will not be processed but will accumulate once it totals R40.00 or more.

    iSAT reserves the right to cancel a subscription at any time due to non-payment of an account. iSAT will charge an administration fee for any late payment or if the debit order is returned, and reserves the right to cancel a subscription if a debit order is returned more than once. Non payment of your account could lead to your connection being temporarily suspended and a reconnection fee of R50 will be charged. Accounts overdue for 3 months will be handed over for collection and admin fees (25% of the invoice amount) will be added to the handed over accounts. All legal fees incurred will be for the customer's account.

    Please note we do not monitor service usage and it is therefore the client's responsibility to give notice of cancellation in the due time required.

    Please note all statements, account correspondence and product/marketing correspondence is sent via email to the specified statement email address as specified by you on your completed registration form. We do not send statements via post. Please ensure that you are receiving your statements sent on the 1st day of every month and if this is not the case please contact us to advise us of the correct email address to use for correspondence purposes.

  8. Payment of Account - Foreign Visitors
    Please contact us for pricing and payment methods for short term subscriptions.

  9. Abusive Behaviour
    1. Absolutely no abusive behaviour will be tolerated either via the Internet, email facility or directly with the staff members of iSAT.
