Agreement for service

A legally binding agreement is made between JINGL and the Customer when we accept your Application Form for Services which may be completed and signed by you personally, submitted online or completed by us on your behalf over the telephone. It should be confirmed by the person applying for the service that they have full power and authority to do so on behalf of the Customer.

Your agreement will start from the date of installation or transfer of the service from your existing carrier and continue for the term and after that until terminated by you or us in the manner set out below. You should check any agreement you may have with an existing carrier to make sure that you understand any effects of transferring your service.

Your agreement will extend to each of the services listed under your selected plan. It may also include any new numbers or services that are requested by you in the future and that we agree to provide. We may ask you to change to a different pricing and tariff in future.

We will endeavour to provide the services in agreement with the relevant Service Description but may change some elements of the Service Description at any time for operational or network plan reasons. We will make every possible effort to ensure that such changes do not adversely impact your use of JINGL service.

You agree that JINGL may obtain a credit report from a credit reporting agency containing personal credit information about you for assessing your application and for providing commercial credit.

You must provide your full legal name, a valid email address and any other required information in order to complete the sign-up process. All information provided by you shall be true and accurate and will be relied upon by us for the provision of the service.

We will send an automatically generated invoice to you once each month detailing the charges of your service usage. You must pay any outstanding fees and charges by the invoice due date. For cases where direct debit authority has been signed, all fees and charges will be billed to your nominated credit card or bank account.

Any charges that we carry forward and do not bill at that time can be billed by us within 190 calendar days from when the charge was incurred by you. We will send you an emailed copy of your bill but you can also access it by logging on to your account on the JINGL Website – www.jingl.com.au

JINGL issues invoices solely as PDF files via e-mail or as a download. JINGL doesn’t send invoices via normal postage in printed paper format.

It is generally not possible to issue an invoice in paper form. The Customer accepts that invoices are sent via e-mail although a confidential transfer of the data cannot be guaranteed.

If you do not receive your invoice, it is your responsibility to notify us immediately.

You will be charged for the calls made according to the chosen call plan.

Customers are responsible for all fees incurred through the use of their account, regardless of the source of usage. The Customer will be responsible for and liable to pay all applicable charges relating to the service, whether such use was made by them or by another person with or without their knowledge or consent.

We reserve the right to make changes to the Pricing Plans at our discretion without notice. Price revisions may happen when (and as deemed necessary) by us. Any changes to the service tariff or plans will be updated on JINGL’s website.

All of our bills are itemised and designed in a way which is easily understandable for you. If you need clarification of any entries on your bill you should contact us as soon as possible and in any event before the due date for payment of the bill.

If you dispute any item on your bill you must pay the whole of the bill including the disputed balance within the time fixed for payment and JINGL will refund any amounts that it agrees should not have been charged if it is established to JINGL’s reasonable satisfaction that you are not liable for the same.


Provision of the service is conditional upon the Customer paying all fees and charges applicable to the service in accordance with this agreement and the tariff of their selected service plan.

If payment is made by credit card, JINGL reserves the right at any time to stop accepting credit cards from one or more providers.

If the Customer's credit or debit card data or other data related to the payment procedure change, the Customer must update this information immediately by logging into their account or by making a call to JINGL’s friendly customer service team.

If the Customer fails to update his/her credit or debit card details or other data relevant for payments, or if the Customer cancels a direct debit authorisation or the Customer causes a return debit note, a negative balance may result. In this case, JINGL is entitled to request the Customer to balance their negative account. We are entitled to charge processing costs with a flat rate of AUD$45.00 (Inc. GST)

You agree to pay the Charges without any set-off or deduction on or before the due date as stated on the invoice by payment by bankers direct debit (or such other means as JINGL may accept).

Without prejudice to any other rights or remedies JINGL may have, we will charge you a fee of AUD$45.00 (inc. GST) or 5% of the outstanding balance (whichever is greater), if you do not pay the whole or any part of your bill by the date it falls due. In case you breach your agreement we may also charge you AUD$125.00 reconnection fee for resuming the services after they have been suspended or terminated.

Dishonoured cheques or direct debit drawings will incur a AUD$10.00 (including GST) administration fee.

If you accept an equipment upgrade, special offer, promotion or benefit, such as a free month of service, free installation, a rebate or other incentives, there may be a term of commitment associated with the benefit you accepted. The Commitment will be disclosed as part of the promotion and commences on the date you activate the new equipment or accept the special offer, promotion or benefit. If your service is disconnected prior to the end of the Commitment period, you agree to pay JINGL a recovery fee in an amount equal to the difference between the price you paid and the Recommended Retail Price (RRP) of the goods, service or other benefits you received at the time the commitment period began.

Number Portability

Number Portability of Direct In-Dial ranges is supported in most instances however some number ranges are locked to certain carriers and cannot be ported to JINGL.

Any numbers that you wish to port must be an active service with your current service provider. A telephone number associated with a suspended or disconnected account with your current service provider cannot be ported and any associated porting requests will be rejected.

Any additional complex services attached to the number like Line/Rotary Hunt, Fax Stream/Duet Services, Voicemail, Digital Subscriber Line, ADSL/SSS services need to be removed/disassociated prior to submitting a porting request. These cannot be transferred and may result in the loss of any such additional services provided by your existing service provider.

You may not be able to port your number if moving to a different geographical location.

Porting of your 13, 1300 or 1800 number service will be conducted in conjunction with Industry Numbering Management Services Ltd (INMS).

In the event that you nominate an incorrect customer name, losing carrier name or account number on a porting form your application may be rejected, your application to port will be delayed and port rejection fees will apply.

Your current service provider may also reject a port request if the information you provide is incorrect or does not match the data held by them. In this case, you authorise us to correct the information and resubmit the request to port your telephone number or dispute the rejection by your current service provider.

In the event of a port rejection, withdrawal or reversal, JINGL is not responsible for any period of outage and no responsibility is accepted by us for any loss of income or business as a result of a port being rejected.
