Betadia Terms Of Service

Last modified: March 16, 2020

Betadia Inc. (“Betadia,” “our,” “we,” or “us”) provides messaging, Internet calling, and other services to users around the world. Please read our Terms and Conditions so you understand the use of Betadia. You agree to our Terms and Conditions (“Terms”) by installing, accessing, or using our apps, services, features, software, or website (together, “Services").

No Access to Emergency Services

There are important differences between Betadia and your mobile and fixed-line telephone and SMS services. Our Services do not provide access to emergency services or emergency services providers, including the police, fire departments, or hospitals, or otherwise connect to public safety answering points. You should ensure you can contact your relevant emergency services providers through a mobile, fixed-line telephone, or other service.

If you are a Betadia user located in Malaysia, kindly note that our terms contain a binding arbitration provision, which states that, except if you opt-out and except for certain types of disputes, Betadia and you agree to resolve all disputes through binding individual arbitration, which means that you waive any right to have those disputes decided by a judge or jury and that you waive your right to participate in class actions, class arbitrations, or representative actions. Please read the “Special Arbitration Provision for Malaysia Users” below to learn more.
