Contract terms

Data bundles have a duration of a range of data amounts from 1 day to 3 months and their prices are on the WIZ website. Monthly packages have a duration of the same day for the following month on activation by the user. There can be no refund if the customer wishes to terminate part way through the month unless there are extenuating circumstances such as defective equipment, bereavement, force majeure. In each specific case WIZ will consider the circumstances and if in WIZs opinion they are extenuating will offer a refund which the customer can appeal to the Ombudsman if it was felt insufficient. Payments are generally pre-paid but provision is also made for post-paid clients and WIZ reserves the right to disable clients for non-payment of bills.
