Notices and Policies

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has rules requiring telecommunications service providers like Mid-Rivers to make its services and products accessible to people with disabilities, if such access is readily achievable. These rules implement Section 255 of the Federal Communications Act.  Section 255 requires telecommunications service providers to make their services and devices compatible with peripheral devices and specialized customer premises equipment that are commonly used by people with disabilities, if such compatibility is readily achievable. Please contact us at 1-800-452-2288 for further information or to discuss your accessibility needs and the options we may have to assist you in using our services.

For many years, your home phone would allow you to stay connected to emergency voice services during a power outage. However, many of today’s home phone services require backup battery power to continue functioning during a power outage.

To avoid a disruption of home voice service during an outage – and to maintain the ability to connect to 911 emergency services – Mid-Rivers as your local Cooperative has installed and will maintain backup power for your home phone at no additional charge. Backup batteries have been installed by Mid-Rivers as part of our standard voice service installation. The purpose of this notice is to share information with you about those batteries; you do not need to take any action unless you are interested in purchasing additional battery capacity.

What Your Battery Can – and Can’t – Do for You

Mid-Rivers’ backup batteries allow you to continue to use your home voice services on a corded landline phone during a power outage.

Our backup battery does NOT provide power to any services other than voice. The backup battery powers the wall jacks that provide voice service. The backup battery does NOT power any other devices that may be connected to those jacks such as cordless phones, home security systems, medical monitoring devices or other equipment.

Expected Backup Power Duration

The standard backup battery should give you about eight (8) hours of emergency standby voice service.  If you use your voice service sparingly during a power outage, the battery should last on standby power for longer than eight hours. Your battery will send Mid-Rivers an alert if it is experiencing problems, so that we can replace or repair it for you. We plan to replace batteries every five to six years to help insure continued operation and availability in the event of a power outage.

Solar charging units or larger capacity batteries capable of increasing battery run time up to 24 hours can be purchased through Mid-Rivers upon request. If you are interested in purchasing a solar unit or larger battery, please contact us. You can also extend your backup time frame by purchasing and installing your own commercially available uninterrupted power supply (UPS) backup power source, or a whole-home standby power solution like a gas or propane generator.

The flexibility and features of your Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) Hosted PBX telephone system can cause emergency 911 calling to work differently than with traditional phones. Please review this important information about Emergency 911 calls and your Unified Communications Hosted PBX telephone system.

To help emergency services respond as quickly as possible, you need to provide to Mid-Rivers, and keep current, the following information for every phone on your system:

  • A valid street address (911 physical address)
  • The floor (first floor, second level, etc.), if applicable
  • The room number, if applicable
  • Any other identifying information a dispatcher may need to know to send emergency responders to the correct location, such as “Basement, “Shop in Back,” or similar reference points

Please let Mid-Rivers know immediately if you move phones around, change offices, take a phone home, etc. We need the current street address and physical location (with floor, room number, etc. if applicable) of each line in our systems to be able to send the right details to emergency services.

If you use a virtual extension, the MaxUC or other Mobile apps with your Unified Communications voice number(s), or otherwise use the service from a different address than initially provided, you must register your current location each time it changes by contacting Mid-Rivers. If you use SIP Call Forking or Device Twinning to support multiple phones in different locations, you must decide which of these locations is the “primary” location for the directory number, and use this as the 911 location. Phones in other locations sharing this directory number should not make 911 calls.

Mid-Rivers offers low-income phone and Internet assistance to qualifying subscribers. Lifeline provides Federal Universal Service support to reduce monthly charges for telephone and/or qualifying Internet service paid by eligible low-income residential customers. These assistance services are non-transferable and allow for only one discount to be applied to a qualifying household. Eligibility standards for Lifeline assistance are determined by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Customers must qualify through National Verifier to become eligible to receive the Lifeline discounts. Customers can qualify by applying at home through your own portal, or by mailing in this application to USAC. All lifeline customers must re-certify every year before the anniversary date of their enrollment. Customers will be contacted prior to their recertification date with a reminder.

CPNI
Information typically available from details about a customer’s monthly telephone usage that has been obtained in the normal course of providing telephone service is known as Customer Proprietary Network Information (CPNI). CPNI might include the type of line, technical characteristics, class of service, current telephone charges, local and long distance billing records, directory assistance charges, usage data and calling patterns. Mid-Rivers does not sell CPNI in any form, including billing records, types of service, and calling habits to third parties. Unless it first obtains a customer’s approval through FCC-approved methods, Mid-Rivers only uses CPNI for our own marketing purposes among categories of service to which the customer already subscribes. With customer approval, Mid-Rivers may share CPNI across product lines within the company and among company affiliates to better serve your communication needs.

We do not provide CPNI to any third party or affiliate, except as required by law or in the normal course of business, as explained below:

  • When you dial 911, information about your location may be automatically transmitted to a public safety agency.
  • Certain information about your long distance calls is transmitted to your billing company for billing purposes.
  • As necessary, Mid-Rivers must disclose information to comply with court orders or subpoenas. We will also share information to protect our rights or property and to protect use of our services and other carriers from fraudulent, abusive or unlawful use of services.
  • Mid-Rivers may also use third parties or contractors to do work for the company, such as billing services. These third-party contractors have the same obligations as our regular employees concerning the confidentiality of our customer information. In cases where it is necessary to provide CPNI to a third party or affiliate, Mid-Rivers requires that those parties sign an agreement that they will protect the confidentiality of our customers’ CPNI and will not use it for marketing purposes or sell to any other parties.

Internet Privacy
As stated in the Mid-Rivers Open Internet Policy, Mid-Rivers may occasionally collect information on network traffic specific to a particular incident when working with a customer to troubleshoot connection issues or other matters. This information is used ONLY for network troubleshooting purposes, and only information on packet source, destination, and port number is collected. Packet payload information (information other than the header information) is not examined in this process. This information is NOT stored by Mid-Rivers, is NOT provided to any third party, and is NOT utilized for any other purpose such as marketing. The Company may also identify BitTorrent usage as part of our normal billing processes and may from time to time contact users of that service to insure they are informed and aware of the Company’s Copyright Repeat Infringer Policy.

Mid-Rivers provides Internet Usage Detail information as a courtesy to our Internet customers. This information is printed on the customer’s bill and available online through our secure SmartHub and My Mid-Rivers account management tools.
