9.1 Online account management is available to residential customers. It is an additional part of your service that allows you to access billing information and utilise other services relevant to you.
9.3 Your bills will be held online for a maximum of 24 months. If you wish to keep a record of your bills, save a copy of them to your computer or make hard copies by printing them out.
9.4 We will email you to let you know when your next bill is available to view. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have provided us with a valid email address to which you have regular access and that you periodically check with the account provider so that the address remains operational. If you use web mail to access your emails (such as hotmail), you may experience some problems receiving your email notifications. This may be because providers such as Hotmail have anti spam settings/filters which may block the email before it reaches your inbox, placing it in the your 'junk mail' folder. These emails can be retrieved by following the guidelines set out by your mail provider. If your provider’s 'anti spam settings' do block your bill notification, we cannot be held responsible for any late payment or failure to pay your bill.
