Phone Check’s policy for providing support in relation to the Software shall be available at www.PhoneCheck.com or such other website address as may be modified from time to time. As part of the Software license, Phone Check will provide the Customer with its standard customer support services during normal business hours in accordance with Phone Check’s Support Services Policy in effect at the time of the services at no additional cost to the Customer.

6- Rollover Licenses
Unused licenses shall be honored in successive terms of this License. In the event Licensee does not use all of it’s licenses within the twelve months of the Agreement, the price of the licenses that have been used shall be calculated according to the pricing chart located at www.phonecheck.com/pricingchart. Any rollover licenses will also be credited at the applicable rate listed on the pricing chart. For Example: If Licensee purchases 25,000 annual licenses at the discounted rate of $1.00 per license, but only uses 10,000 licenses during the term, those 10,000 licenses will be credited at the standard rate for a 10,000 license purchaser ( $1.50 per license for purposes of this example). The balance of rollover licenses will also be credited at the $1.50 rate. The result in this example will be that Licensee paid $25,000 for the annual licenses and used 10,000 licenses which would be billed against the account for $15,000. The balance of the credits provided to Licensee shall be $10,000 at the $1.50 per license rate, yielding a total of 6,666 licenses to be rolled over into year two.
