This is an application whereby you agree to purchase telecommunications and entertainment services from Citizens' Telephone Cooperative or one of its subsidiaries (Citizens Cablevision, Inc. and SelecTec, Inc). The Cooperative and subsidiaries, hereinafter individually, each and/or jointly referred to as "Company", are all organized under the laws of the State of Virginia. For the purposes of this application the term "Member" shall apply when purchasing services from the Cooperative and the term "Applicant" will apply otherwise. A Member may be an individual, firm, association, corporation, or a body politic as defined in Section 1(b) of the Cooperative bylaws and an Applicant may also be an individual, firm, association, corporation, or a body politic. As a Member, capital credits will accrue on member defined services to be paid out by the Cooperative as determined by the Board of Directors.
All accounts/services are in default if they are unpaid by the due date. Upon disconnection of services, Company owned equipment will be billed to the account. When the equipment is returned in working condition, credit will be given. If the services were in a contract, Early Termination Fees will be billed when the service is disconnected.
Any default of contract(s), customer agreement(s), or failure to pay for services rendered shall give the Company the right to proceed to terminate the agreement(s), contract(s), or service(s) and to exercise all other rights and remedies as provided by law. The Member/Applicant agrees that, in such event, the Member/Applicant shall be obligated to pay our reasonable collection expenses which may include but not be limited to, court costs, collection fees which are charged by the Company at such time as the account is turned over to said collection agency, and attorney’s fees of twenty-five (25) percent of any unpaid balance at such time as the account is turned over to an attorney for collection. The Member/Applicant further agrees that all collection fees as mentioned herein shall not be deemed to be in the nature of a penalty for default, but instead shall be deemed to be liquidated damages. It is understood that said account will accrue interest until paid in full in accordance with Code of Virginia and Federal Statutes. The Member/Applicant also gives permission to submit cell phone numbers for collection purposes upon default of terms.
