Unless otherwise agreed in writing, payment for data service shall be made in full prior to the beginning of the data coverage period. The customer will be notified both 30 days and 14 days prior to the ending of the data coverage period. If payment for renewal is not received by the end of the data coverage period, the coverage will be suspended. After 60 days, the suspended account will be cancelled and will require a $25 fee to reactivate.
- Early Cancellation
If the customer wishes to cancel an active data plan prior to the end of the data coverage period for any reason, the customer will be charged a one-time fee of $100 and be refunded the prorated unused portion of their data coverage. It is the responsibility of the customer to determine proper connectivity to the network prior to purchasing a data plan.

- Service Charges
eGauge Systems reserves the right to terminate coverage if eGauge Systems or the carrier provider lose or terminate coverage in a geographic region, or changes in circumstance result in a material adverse impact on eGauge Systems’ cost basis in accessing coverage or if eGauge Systems determines continued support of network services becomes commercially unreasonable. Any unused portion of the data coverage will be refunded to the customer at a prorated amount. Data plan pricing is subject to change upon renewal.

Make sure the owner(s) of any existing device(s) agree to have the firmware upgraded and your logo applied before requesting such a change.
