Terms of Service
Last Updated: September 1, 2023
Welcome to the Terms of Service for the enQ websites and purchases of products or services offered via the website. These Terms of Service constitute an agreement ("Agreement") between Instant Telecom Solutions, Inc., utilizing the trade names "enQ" and "callenQ" ("Company"), the owner and operator of www.callenq.com or such other website(s) as Company may operate from time to time ("Site"), which may offer services or products (collectively referred to as the "Platform") and you ("you", "your," "User(s)" or "Customer"), a user of the Site and Platform.
Throughout this Agreement, the words "Company," "us," "we," and "our," refer to our company, Instant Telecom Solutions, Inc., and our Site or Platform, as is appropriate in the context of the use of the words.
Description of Platform
Company provides a seamless calling solution to its users, by allowing users to reduce their wait times and receive priority service when calling the IRS and such other agencies as the Company may list from time to time. Through the Platform, users shall receive an estimated wait time for all calls to the IRS and other government agencies, as applicable. Please be aware that all wait times are approximate. Company will post the pricing and other information for one or more service plans as may be available from time to time (each a “Plan”) on the Site. The Company provides only telephone access to certain departments within the IRS and such other governmental agencies as listed by the Company from time to time. The Platform is not, and does not provide a substitute for, telephone service, and cannot be used to reach end users other than the agencies identified on the Site.
You acknowledge, understand and agree that Company’s solution does not provide services equivalent to, and our services and Platform are not replacements for, telephone services. You must receive wired or mobile telephone services, or Voice over Internet Protocol services, from a third-party carrier or service provider to place calls using the Platform. You may only contact the numbers listed on the Site, and cannot use the Platform to place calls to any other numbers, including without limitation, 911.
Signing Up for enQ Service
Using the Service via a Callback Call.
Company may from time to time use, or permit you to access the Platform or services through, third party systems or services, including without limitation for the purpose of requesting callbacks in lieu of remaining on the line. For the avoidance of doubt, the use of your PIN or callback services indirectly through a third-party platform or provider is covered by this Agreement to the same extent as the direct use of the Site or Platform. You consent to the receipt of callback calls via any such third-party platform or provider.
Once you have properly created an account and received your PIN, you will be able to access the services offered by Company via the Platform. Simply call the applicable toll-free number provided by Company on the Site and enter your PIN. Company shall provide you with the estimated wait time ("enQ Wait Time") and a rate ("credits per minute") to connect to the IRS call center or other government agency, and you may follow the prompt to accept the call via enQ. platform. By using the Site or Platform, you expressly agree to only provide a callback number that you have access to and is assigned to you, and consent to receive calls from Company to that number. Once the call has been accepted by you, the credits allocated to your Plan shall be deducted in accordance with Section 17 hereof.
Although we strive to provide accurate estimates for the enQ Wait Time, you understand, acknowledge and agree that the enQ Wait Time is only an approximate estimation. Thus, we cannot be responsible for any additional wait time that you experience while using our Platform. Company does not guarantee, represent, or warrant any enQ Wait Times are accurate or precise. The enQ Wait Times quoted are best estimates based on past data and user activity and are for informational purposes only. As none of the wait times are exact, you agree to release us from any liability related to or associated with any wait times above the estimated enQ Wait Time. However, as we wish to provide you with excellent service, if you feel that your wait time was excessive in relation to the quoted enQ Wait Time, please contact us at email@example.com. You acknowledge and agree that the enQ Wait Time estimates only the approximate wait time to connect to an IRS/agency representative, and there may be an additional wait time once you are connected to the IRS/ agency representative, which is not included in the enQ Wait Time. Company cannot provide you with any estimates for any IRS or other applicable agency wait times, and will have no liability for the length of call, wait time or delays once you are connected to the IRS or other agency.
Connection and Equipment
In order to place calls and connect with our Platform, users may be required to purchase or maintain additional equipment such as phone lines, internet connections, and phone equipment. Company is not responsible for providing such equipment and under no circumstances will we be responsible for any additional equipment required by the user to access the Platform. You are solely responsible for obtaining all required connections and equipment to access and use the Platform, including without limitation for paying all costs associated with such connections and equipment and ensuring that your connections and equipment are compatible with the Platform. Failure to obtain the required connections or equipment may result in unavailability or errors in accessing or using the Platform. Additionally, you agree that no form of calling is error-free and that Company is not responsible for any interruption to the Platform due to faulty equipment, faulty transmission systems, power outages, weak signal strength, acts or omissions of third-party carriers or service providers, or other interruptions in transmission services. You understand that both wireless and wired systems may become disrupted at times and may cause you to lose your connection with the Platform. We also have no control over the systems, services, equipment or personnel of the IRS or any other entity to whom we may from time to time allow you to call using the Platform, and we shall have no liability or responsibility with respect to the operation or availability of any such systems, services, equipment or personnel. You acknowledge, understand and agree that we are not responsible for any disconnections, and you will be charged in accordance with our stated pricing, even in the event of a disconnection. However, in an effort to provide excellent service, Company may choose, at its sole and absolute discretion, to automatically refund credits under certain disconnect scenarios.

Specifically, we do not guarantee any uptime or specific availability of the Site. You agree and acknowledge that the Site uses remote access and may not always be either 100% reliable or available. The Platform may be subject to interruptions for a variety of reasons, including Wi-Fi connectivity, mobile issues, cellphone service, and service provider uptime. Only users who are eligible to use our Platform may do so and we may refuse service or terminate your access at any time. We cannot guarantee that anything found on our Site will work as stated, or that it will give you any desired results.

We reserve the right to alter, modify, update, or remove our Platform, or modify, expand or reduce the services provided over the Platform or available via the Site, at any time. We may conduct such modifications for any reason in our sole and absolute discretion, including without limitation for security reasons (including by way of example and not limitation, updates to fix security flaws), protection or our or a third party’s intellectual property, changes in applicable law or other legal requirements, or business considerations. We are not required to explain such modifications; provided, that if any modifications will materially affect your use of the Platform, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide prior notice on the Site. Nothing in this section obligates us to take measures to update the Platform for security, legal or other purposes.
Our Platform, the Site, any information found within either of them, and our services are offered "as-is" and “with all faults.” Any content found on the Platform or the Site is offered only for informational and educational purposes. We cannot guarantee that using our Platform or Site will result in any benefits or positive results for you. You agree to release us from any liability that we may have in relation to your use of our Site and Platform. By using the Site or Platform, you agree that any legal remedy or liability that you seek to obtain for actions or omissions of other users or other third parties will be limited to a claim against the particular users or other third parties who caused you harm and you agree not to attempt to impose liability on, or seek any legal remedy from Company with respect to such actions or omissions.
The name “enQ,” ; the Platform and Site, including without limitation, all software, Company-created text, writings, images, templates, scripts, graphics, interactive features, processes, design elements (e.g., “look and feel”), whether or not subject to copyright, patent or other intellectual property rights under US or foreign laws or international conventions (the “Company IP”); and any and all trademarks, service marks, trade dress, trade names or logos of Company ("Marks"), are owned by or licensed to us. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Company IP includes the methods and processes by which the Company determines the dynamic rates for its services, as more fully described in Section 20 hereof, and all manner and form of displaying the same.. Company reserves all rights not expressly granted in and to the Company IP, Marks, the Platform and the Site, and all other intellectual property embodied therein. You agree to not engage in the use, copying, or distribution of any Company IP, Marks, or anything contained within the Site or Platform unless we have given prior express written permission, which permission may be granted, withheld or conditioned in our sole discretion.
Company may, but shall not be obligated to, offer trials of the services provided by the Platform. Any trials may be subject to additional terms or restrictions as posted on the Site from time to time. Company reserves the right and final discretion to decide whether to continue or discontinue any trials. If you elect to upgrade to a Plan during your trial, your trial will end immediately and your credit card (which you will provide either at the time of enrolling in the trial, if required under the terms of the trial, or upon selecting a Plan) will be charged in accordance with Section 23 hereof. However, if you upgrade during your trial, your unused trial credits will convert to roll-over credits, subject to the roll-over credit cap.
If you are on a trial, you can upgrade to a paid Plan at any time on or before the final day of the trial period. Unless otherwise stated on the Site, each Plan that you select is monthly and shall be billed and charged automatically until you terminate your Plan. Each Plan listed shall have allotted credits as stated on the Plan. Monthly Plans include the ability to roll-over credits up to the roll-over cap specified in the Plan information posted on the Site. If you exceed your Plan monthly credits and any saved roll-over credits, each additional credit shall be billed to you based on the plan prorated calculation.
In order to continue using the Platform after any trial, you must subscribe to a Plan. Once you have subscribed to a Plan you may continue using the services via the Platform. You may make a call using the Platform at any time by calling the number provided and entering your PIN. Company shall then provide you with the estimated enQ Wait Time and credit per minute rate. If you decide to connect please follow the verbal prompts. Billed call time is measured starting from when Company connects you to the IRS or other agency line and ends when the call is disconnected. Credits are deducted from your Plan at the time of disconnection. The billed call time increment is 1 second. Your remaining Plan credits for the month and roll-over credits shall be listed in your account dashboard. If you exceed your Plan monthly credits and accrued roll-over credits, each additional credit shall be billed to you at a rate of $0.01/credit, or such other rate as then posted for your Plan. For example, if you exceed your monthly Plan by 500 credits, you will be charged an additional $5.00 for the extra credits. Plan credits, roll-over credits, and trial credits have no cash value and cannot be refunded.
Company's monthly Plans includes roll-over credits capped at three times your Plan credits. At the end of your billing cycle, unused credits roll over to the following month subject to the roll-over credit cap. For example, if your monthly Plan is $300/month for 30k credits/month, you may accrue up to 90k credits. Unused roll-over credits expire 3 months after accruing them. Yearly Plans do not include roll-over credits.
You can change your Plan at any time by logging into the website. If you are changing from a Monthly plan to another Monthly Plan, you will be able to keep your unused credits as roll-over credits subject to the roll-over credit cap on the new plan. Changing your plan from a Monthly Plan to a Yearly Plan or vice-versa will not allow you to keep roll-over credits. However, you can reach out to the Company at email@example.com and the Company can decide to add lost credits on a case-by-case basis.
Credit per Minute Rate
Company’s rate per call ("credits per minute") is dynamic and determined as function of supply and demand, as estimated by us based upon our evaluation of the factors described below. The “credit per minute rate” or “dynamic rate” may vary depending on the department called and time of day at which the call is placed. For example, the rate for a popular IRS department at 7am EST may be significantly less than the same department at noon. The rate for a low demand IRS department may be low regardless of the time of the day. Supply is defined as the quantity of agents, lines or extensions at a particular call destination and difficulty in reaching an agent at a particular department / time of day. Supply is limited as any agency answers a finite number of calls per day. In addition, reaching an IRS agent can be difficult due to the IRS' courtesy disconnects and long hold times. Demand is defined as the number of Company customers desiring to connect to the same department or extension at the same time of day.
Our “fair usage” policy offers unlimited legitimate calls. We want to give our customers the opportunity to call again if they get disconnected for whatever reason. Nothing in the foregoing limits the application of our rates as set forth herein or on the Site, or the restrictions on use contained elsewhere in these Terms of Service or in other posted policies of Company.
If Company determines, in its sole discretion, that your call was dropped by the recipient very soon after we connected you to the line, we may elect not to bill you for that call. Company reserves the right to define exactly what “very soon” means, but typically will mean less than a few minutes. Except as stated in this Section, Company does not compensate for dropped calls. Company does not monitor the customer's call and cannot verify the legitimacy of a dropped call claim. Calls can drop anywhere in the path between the customer to Company to the called party, and the completion of calls relies upon third-party networks and the facilities of the called party, over which Company has no control and for which Company will have no obligation or liability.
Subscription and Payment
Following any applicable trial period, you will be required to pay a monthly subscription fee or other fee as listed on the Platform. You agree to pay the fee listed on the Platform upon sign-up or upon the expiration of your trial. Charges for the credits assigned under your Plan, along with all applicable taxes and fees thereon, are charged monthly in advance, with overages and any other usage-based or variable charge, and any applicable taxes and fees thereon, charged monthly in arrears. Upon selecting a Plan, you will provide current credit card information. YOU AUTHORIZE COMPANY TO CHARGE, AND COMPANY WILL CHARGE, THE APPLICABLE SUBSCRIPTION FEES TO YOUR CREDIT CARD AT THE START OF YOUR SUBSCRIPTION (AS IDENTIFIED IN THE PLAN), AND ON A RECURRING BASIS ON EACH BILLING DATE THEREAFTER, UNLESS AND UNTIL YOUR AGREEMENT IS CANCELLED AS PROVIDED HEREIN. YOU HEREBY AGREE AND AUTHORIZE US TO BILL YOU ON A RECURRING BASIS AND AGREE THAT NO ADDITIONAL CONSENT IS REQUIRED BY YOU TO CHARGE YOUR PREFERRED PAYMENT METHOD AUTOMATICALLY AND ON A MONTHLY BASIS. Your credit card information will be shared with our third-party payment processor, and you hereby consent to our sharing that information. By submitting your payment information, you also agree to the terms and conditions of our third-party payment processor. Please be aware that all payment information will be stored and secured by the payment processor and not us, and you must agree with our payment processor's policies.
An initial account deposit is collected when a subscription is created or your Plan is changed. The account deposit will be applied to the final invoice upon cancellation or expiration of your subscription. Without limiting any of our other remedies hereunder, Company reserves the right to require an additional deposit in the event of a change in usage of your account (including, without limitation, a pattern of overages), failure to pay any amount when due, rejection of your credit card on file, or for the restoration of your services or account following suspension.
Company expressly reserves the right to increase the price of any or all of its Plans or adjust any Plan credits after any monthly subscription cycle. In the event of a price increase, Company will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify users of the affected Plan(s); provided that such notice may be provided on the Site. You acknowledge and agree that, unless otherwise agreed by Company in writing, there is no fixed term for the prices and credit allowances associated with your Plan.
You may cancel and terminate your subscription by notifying us via your account dashboard or contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the event of any termination or cancellation of your subscription for any reason, whether by you or us, you will be responsible for all fees that have accrued through the Termination Date (as hereinafter defined). If you cancel or terminate your Plan, you will lose your credits including Plan credits, trial credits, and any roll-over credits that have accrued, and you will not be reimbursed for any such credits not used on or before the Termination Date. Upon termination you will not be entitled to any refunds or proration of any subscription fees paid except as stated in this Agreement. We may terminate your subscription upon notice to your if we determine that: (1) you have violated any applicable laws while using our Platform; (2) If you have violated this Agreement or any other of our agreements pertaining to your use of our Platform; or (3) if we believe that any of your actions may harm Company, its licensors, vendors, underlying carriers or other customers, at our sole discretion (each a “Termination for Cause”). In the event of Termination for Cause, we may, but are not required to, provide you with advance notice and an opportunity to cure. We may also discontinue any service or Plan at any time, in which event we will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide you with such advance notice as we deem reasonable, in our sole discretion. Unless otherwise stated in your Plan, any termination or cancellation will be effective on the applicable date as follows (the “Termination Date”): (a) for termination by you, on the later of the end of your monthly billing cycle in which notice is given or ten (10) business days following such notice (the “Termination Date”); (b) for Termination for Cause by Company, immediately upon notice, or such later date as Company may specify; or (c) for termination by Company due to the discontinuance of any Plan or service, upon the date specified by Company. In the event that your account is terminated for any reason, all information may be deleted and unrecoverable.
As we offer a unique service via the Platform, we have instituted a no-refunds policy for all calls and Plan purchases. However, if you feel that there are extenuating circumstances that warrant a refund, please contact us at email@example.com. Please be aware that all decisions whether to refund or credit your Plan will be made by us in our sole and absolute discretion.
We attempt to protect ourselves from chargebacks by employing different fraud detection methods. In the event of a chargeback, we will notify you immediately. If we believe that you have participated in a fraudulent chargeback, we reserve the right to pursue all remedies available to us hereunder, at law or in equity, including without limitation, immediate suspension of your subscription, Termination for Cause, or filing suit against you to the fullest extent allowed by law. In the event that we believe that you have submitted a fraudulent chargeback, we may also, in our sole and absolute discretion, forward your information to the applicable law enforcement agency or other governmental body, and will fully cooperate in any resulting criminal or civil proceeding against you.
Taxes and Fees
Imposition of Taxes and Fees. All charges for the Company’s services are exclusive of any Taxes and Fees (as defined below). Except for taxes based on our net income or for taxes which you possess and provide to us an exemption certificate, you shall be responsible for payment of all applicable taxes that arise in any jurisdiction, including, without limitation, federal, state, local and jurisdictional taxes (including without limitation sales and use taxes), fees, surcharges and other regulatory, compliance and/or cost recovery fees, mandated or non-mandated applicable to your use of the Platform and Site, and all other products or services provided by us (collectively "Taxes and Fees"). Taxes and Fees are subject to change without notice. Tax and Fee Exemptions. If you are entitled to an exemption from any Taxes or Fees, you are responsible for presenting us with a valid exemption certificate (in a form reasonably acceptable to us).
