Any calls made by the Client to the Provider may be recorded for training and monitoring purposes. The Provider’s support team is made up of highly trained professionals who regularly receive training to ensure that they are fully equipped to answer all the Client’s support queries quickly and efficiently. In addition to this, the Provider monitors and records its calls to ensure that it maintains the highest possible standards of service to its customers and regularly carries out surveys to encourage feedback from its customers.
The Provider shall respond to any telephone calls or emails by the method it deems most appropriate, which may be by telephone, email or remote dial‐in.
Support does not include any on‐site assistance and will only be provided remotely. On‐site support is available upon request and will be charged additionally at the Provider’s then‐current daily rate for this service.
The Client shall provide to the Provider, its employees, contractors, agents and all other persons duly authorised by the Provider with full, safe and uninterrupted access (including remote access) to the Client’s systems and facilities as may be reasonably required by the Provider for the purpose of providing support.
The Client shall take all reasonable steps to ensure that the Services are operated in a proper manner and only by employees of the
Client who are adequately trained on use of the Services.
The Client shall:
co‐operate with the Provider and provide any assistance or information as may reasonably be required by the Provider, including in relation to the diagnosis of any faults;

(b) use reasonable endeavours to ensure successful delivery of messages sent by the Client using the SMS Service.

(c) not be liable for the content of any messages sent by the Client using the SMS Service;
(d) use reasonable endeavours to ensure uptime of the SMS Services, but shall not be liable for downtime caused by circumstances beyond the reasonable control of the Provider;

(c) the Client is responsible to the Provider for any use of the Client’s passwords by any third party. The Client shall pay for all messages sent using the SMS Service from the Client’s account, and it is therefore recommended that the Client keeps its password confidential;
(d) after the Client has entered into a Contract relating to SMS Services and has set up a direct debit mandate, the Provider shall send to the Client a password by email. This password serves as authentication of the Client’s identity to the Provider and the Provider shall not be required to perform any further authentication of the Client’s identity;
(e) all activities conducted using the Client’s SMS Service account may be traced to the Client and are deemed to have been performed by the Client and are legally binding for the Client;
(f) the Client shall be responsible for the content of any messages sent using the SMS Service. The Client shall use the SMS Service in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations (including the Direct Marketing Association’s Code of Practice from time to time) and network operator requirements and shall not use the SMS Service to transmit any content which is unlawful, offensive or which could in the Provider’s sole determination bring the Provider’s reputation or the reputation of the SMS Service into disrepute;
(g) the Provider takes complaints (whether from individuals, third parties, network operators, regulators (including the Information Commissioner’s Office, and any other public or enforcement authority) relating to the Client’s use of the SMS Service very seriously, and may suspend provision of the SMS Service if any such complaint is received; and h. it is advised to include its own contact details in messages sent using the SMS Service to ensure that any complaints are direct to the Client (and not to the network operator, the Provider or any third party), and the Provider reserves the right to remove telephone numbers from the SMS Service database in its sole discretion if a complaint is received with respect to that number.
5. The provisions of Clause 7.5 of the Conditions shall apply to the Provider’s processing of Client Personal Data as part of the SMS Service.

3. The Client:
a. warrants that it is authorised to allow the upload of the information contained in each File on to the Portals (including by having in place all necessary licences, authorisations and consents) and that it has in place a valid, enforceable, written agreement with each Portal provider before submitting Files to the Provider for transmission to the relevant Portal;
b. shall not, nor shall the Client permit any third party to, copy, reproduce, redistribute, download, republish, transmit, display, adapt, alter, create derivative works from or otherwise extract or re‐utilise any information made available on any Portal, whether for commercial gain or otherwise, without the prior written consent of the Provider;

Identity Check Services
If the Client elects to receive the Identity Check Services, and subject to payment by the Client of the Identity Check Service Fees, the Provider shall make available to the Client the ability to authenticate the identity of an individual (“Applicant”) through identity checks which shall be carried out by Experian Limited (“Experian”) based on the Applicant’s Personal Data provided to the Provider, either by the Client or by the Applicant, for the purposes of using the Identity Check Services (“Search Data”).
The Identity Check Services include the following:
ID Hub The provision by the Provider to Client of a service whereby identity authentication scores are delivered to the Client in respect of Search Data received by or on behalf of the Client or from the Applicant.
Identity IQ The provision by the Provider to Client of an identity verification solution – this solution will corroborate Search Data, made up of answers provided by an Applicant based on certain data sources, against those data sources.
The Identity Check Services will provide the Client with results, reports and information from Experian (“Verification Information”).
Where the Client provides the Search Data directly to the Provider, the Client:
a. warrants that it shall notify each Applicant at the point of collection of the Search Data that:
i. a search will be carried out with Experian for the purposes of verifying the Applicant’s identity;
ii. Experian may check the details the Applicant supplies against any particulars on any database (public or otherwise) to which Experian has access in order to verify the Applicant’s identity; and
iii. Experian will retain a record of the search; and
b. shall not use the Identity Check Services if notification has not been provided to an Applicant in accordance with paragraph 4.a of this Schedule 7.
Where the Client instructs an Applicant to provide the Search Data directly to the Provider, the Client warrants that it has obtained all permissions and/or authority to enable the Provider to contact the Applicant for the purposes of carrying out the Identity Check Services and that such contact will not breach applicable law or regulation.
a. shall not use, or allow others to use, the Identity Check Services or the Verification Information (or both) to provide authentication, fraud prevention or any other information‐based services to any other third party;
b. acknowledges and agrees that it shall make its own independent evaluation and decision on the suitability or otherwise of each Applicant based on all information that is or becomes available to it;
c. acknowledges and agrees that the Provider and Experian are not liable to it in relation to the Identity Check Services and that no warranties, representations or guarantees are made in relation to the Identity Check Services and/or Verification Information (except to the extent liability cannot be excluded by law);
d. warrants that it has a valid data protection registration in its own name and address which covers the processing for which the Verification Information may be used (“Valid Registration”) and that the Valid Registration is, at all times, displayed on the public register available on the website of the Information Commissioner’s Office (www.ico.gov.uk);
e. shall not use the Identity Check Services if, at any time, it does not have a Valid Registration; and
f. acknowledges and agrees that Experian may retain a record of searches carried out on an Applicant’s credit report and that the results of such searches will be visible to the respective Applicant only, and will not affect the Applicant’s credit rating.
The Provider reserves the right to suspend, alter, or cease the provision of, the Identity Check Services at any time without notice to the Client.
The Client acknowledges and agrees that the questions asked by the Identity Check Services may be subject to restrictions that apply to the data that is used by Experian to carry out the checks under the Identity Check Services, or may be subject to restrictions in the future. Such restrictions are imposed upon Experian by its data suppliers and/or law and regulation. Accordingly, in order to comply with these restrictions, the Provider is entitled at any time to remove from the Identity Check Services certain types of questions.
If the Client is receiving a version of the Identity Check Services that uses the full electoral roll in order to ask certain types of question, the Client warrants and represents that it shall only use the Identity Check Services for purposes consistent with meeting any obligations contained in the Money Laundering Regulations 1993, the Money Laundering Regulations 2001 or any rules made pursuant to section 146 of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000.
In order for the Provider to provide the Identity Check Services to the Client (and in order for Experian to comply with the licence terms which British Telecommunications plc and/or other third party suppliers of telephone number data require), the Client agrees to the following:
a. the Client appoints Experian as agent under this Agreement for the purpose of using the Search Data to carry out directory enquiry searches for and on its behalf of it;
b. the Client authorises and instructs Experian to:
i. use any retrieved telephone numbers resulting from such directory enquiries for the sole purpose of comparing such telephone numbers against any telephone numbers contained within the relevant and applicable data and producing a score based upon whether there was or was not a match of telephone numbers; and
ii. incorporate the score referred to in paragraph 10.b.i of this Schedule 7 into the overall score delivered by the Identity Check Services;
c. the Client instructs and confirms that telephone numbers retrieved from such directory enquiry searches are for use as input into the comparison process described in paragraph 10.b.ii of this Schedule 7 only and Experian are not required to return such telephone numbers to the Client;
d. the Client acknowledges that where it accesses GRO Mortality data within the Identity Check Services the Client must provide as a minimum, name and date of birth details for the relevant Applicant.
The Client accepts that the Identity Check Services involve models and techniques based on statistical analysis, probability and predictive behaviour and are not intended to be used as the sole basis for any business decision. The Provider is therefore not able to accept any liability for any failure of the Identity Check Services to achieve any particular result.
The Client shall permit the Provider (on reasonable notice and during normal working hours) to audit the Client’s compliance with its obligations in relation to the use the Identity Check Services and the Verification Information except that the Client agrees that it shall permit the Provider to audit its compliance with the terms of this Schedule 7 immediately if the Provider is notified by Experian that Experian reasonably believes the Client may have breached the terms of this Schedule 7. The reasonable costs of an audit under this paragraph 12 will be paid (i) by the Client if the Client has breached the terms of this
Schedule 7, or (ii) by the Provider if the Client has not breached the terms of this Schedule 7.
All Intellectual Property Rights in the Verification Information will remain vested in the Provider (or its relevant licensors) and to the extent that any rights in such data or materials vest in the Client by operation of law, the Client hereby assigns such rights to the Provider.
a. acknowledges and agrees that it shall not acquire or claim any title to any of the other party’s Intellectual Property Rights (or those of the other party’s licensors) by virtue of the rights granted to it under this Schedule 7 or through its use of such Intellectual Property Rights;
