Operation and Limitations of the 911 Service

Growth Mode Technologies may provide access to emergency calling services, allowing most Growth Mode Technologies users to access either basic 911 or Enhanced 911 (E911) service. Growth Mode Technologies (Beyond Telephone) users, using IP Desk Phones or Softphones, can dial 911 directly from their IP Desk Phones or Softphone. MOBILE USERS COMPLETE 911 CALLS. They should make those calls directly from their cell phone’s regular phone calling app.

We strongly recommend NOT using Beyond Telephone/Growth Mode Technologies or any other VOIP powered phone service for 911 calls. In an emergency we recommend using a cell phone to dial 911 from the native phone app on device. 

Emergency calling services work differently than you may have experienced using traditional wireline or wireless telephones. Your access may differ depending on your location or the device you are using.

Registering Your 911 Location
You must register the address of the physical location where you will use 911 with Growth Mode Technologies immediately upon activation of your End Point. This is your Registered Address. You must use Growth Mode Technologies voice services only at the Registered Address provided for the applicable phone number. If you move a registered device, you must immediately update the Registered Address with the new physical location of the device with Growth Mode. If you do not update the Registered Address, any 911 calls made from the device may be sent to the wrong emergency response center and will not transmit your current location information to emergency responders, delaying emergency assistance to you. It may take up to several hours for the address update to take effect. Customers with more than one Phone Number are solely responsible for ensuring that an accurate and up-to-date Registered Address is maintained for each Phone Number, and that their End Users are aware of how the Registered Address can be changed.

911 Service limitations
Growth Mode Technologies 911 service will not function (i) in the event of an Internet or power outage; (ii) if your broadband, ISP, or Growth Mode Technologies Service is terminated; (iii), with respect to only the Growth Mode Technologies Provided Mobile Applications, if you do not have mobile service, as the Growth Mode Technologies provided Mobile Applications cannot send emergency calls over Wi-Fi access; and (iv) in some Global Office countries. It is possible that network congestion may delay or prevent completion of any 911 call. You will not be able to complete a 911 call if you move to a physical location outside the country in which your Phone Number is provided, or if you are dialing from a Growth Mode Technologies number that is not a Canadian or United States number.

Users uncomfortable with any of these limitations should use an alternate means of reaching 911.

Notification of Employees, Guests, or Other Users
Customers must notify any employees, contractors, guests, or persons who may place calls using the Services or may be present at the physical location where the Services may be used, of the limitations of 911 Service from your IP phone, other equipment, or Softphone. Customer should affix a sticker warning that 911 services may be limited or unavailable in a readily visible place on each piece of equipment that might be used to access or use the Services, as required by 47 C.F.R. § 9.5.

Disclaimer of Liability for Emergency Call Response
Your use, and use by your employees, guests and other third parties, of Growth Mode Technologies’s 911 Services are subject to the limitations described herein. The availability of certain features, such as transmission of a Registered Address or your Growth Mode Technologies telephone number, depends on whether local emergency response centers support those features, and other factors outside of Growth Mode Technologies’s control. Growth Mode Technologies relies on qualified third parties to assist us in routing 911 calls and text messages to local emergency response centers and to the NECC. Growth Mode Technologies does not have control over local emergency response centers, the NECC, emergency responders, or other third parties. Growth Mode Technologies disclaims all responsibility for the conduct of local emergency response centers, the NECC, third parties engaged by Customer to facilitate address updates, and all other third parties involved in the provision of emergency response services. To the extent permitted by applicable Law, you hereby release, discharge, and hold harmless Growth Mode Technologies from and against any and all liability relating to or arising from any acts or omissions of such third parties or other third parties involved in the handling of or response to any emergency or 911 call.

Customer indemnifies and holds harmless Growth Mode Technologies, and any third-party provider(s) from any and all third-party claims, losses, damages, fines, or penalties arising out of: (i) Customer or its End User’s provision to Growth Mode Technologies of incorrect information, including physical addresses, or failure to update a Registered Address; (ii) Customer’s failure to properly notify any person who may place calls using the Services of the 911 limitations; or (iii) the absence, failure, or outage of emergency service dialing using the Services for any reason; and (iv) the inability of any End User to be able to dial 911 or access emergency service personnel for any reason.
