The European SIM card service is a radio based GSM service and there are natural limitations to quality and coverage. While every effort is made to minimize these limitations and to ensure that the GSM services are available to you at all times, we are not liable for any failure, delay, interruption, suspension, or restriction of the services or for a call being cut off for any reason. You will only be able to access data when you are in an area covered by the relevant network.

Our Post-pay service means that you have authorized us to automatically debit your credit card for any additional data used beyond your monthly data bundle within each 30 day per period. In addition, should we offer you service beyond the 30 day period, this service will be subject to a monthly recurring charge (the "MRC").
Charges for our Services shall be calculated by reference to our current, relevant price listed at www.dataroam.com
For Post-pay accounts, you hereby irrevocably authorize us to debit your debit or credit card for all the relevant charges to your account as they are incurred.
If you do not renew your subscription by its anniversary date, then your European SIM card service will move to an inactive state and you will receive a one year grace period within which to reactivate your SIM card. The following actions will automatically occur:

In such circumstances, Dataroam has no liability or obligation to pay or refund you the cost of either any mobile Hotspot and/or any SIM pack provided by us.

All Dataroam customers with active SIM cards will be charged a MRC (monthly recurring charge) of $39 per month. The MRC will normally be debited from your credit card between the 1st and 15th of every month. The MRC charge applies to all SIMs that have been active since first use. A SIM is deemed to be active from the first day it is used for any data services. This charge will not be prorated. SIMs that have not been activated will not be charged.
An active SIM will continue to be charged until it is deactivated. A SIM card that is deactivated is then suspended for one year. Deactivation is an irreversible event.
