5. SERVICE AND PRODUCT DESCRIPTIONS, PRICING, AND AVAILABILITY
With respect to its offering of information, services, and products, RingCentral attempts to describe its offerings as accurately as possible on our website, including up to date pricing for our products and services.. Nevertheless, RingCentral does not warrant or represent, and it is not a term of this TOS, that information, service and product descriptions, service or product availability, or other content of its website (the "Site") is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. Except for any liability in respect of fraudulent misrepresentation, RingCentral is not liable for any action you may take as a result of relying on any content provided on the Site or for any loss or damage suffered by you as a result of you taking this action. Despite our efforts, it is possible due to computer or other error or cause that a service or product offered on the Site may be mispriced, described inaccurately, or unavailable.
Our invitation to you to register for a service or buy a product on the Site is not an "offer" by us to sell you a service or product at the prices on the Site. Instead when you register for the service or buy the product on the Site, you make an offer to us to register for the services or buy the product, which we can accept or reject. The order is finalised (and a legal contract is created between us) when we send a confirmatory email accepting your order. If there is a mistake in the pricing for the services or product on the Site then, when we receive your order we will email you and set out the correct price and give you the opportunity to register for the services or buy the product at that price or you may decide not to register for the service or buy that product.
In addition to the above, in the event RingCentral determines that a service or product is mispriced or described inaccurately, RingCentral reserves the right to take any action it deems reasonable and necessary, in its sole discretion, to rectify the error, including without limitation canceling your order and notifying you. You agree to notify RingCentral immediately if you become aware of any pricing or descriptive errors or inconsistencies with any services or products you order through the Site and comply with any corrective action taken by RingCentral.

7. RINGCENTRAL'S PROPRIETARY RIGHTS
RingCentral and/or its Affiliates own and shall at all times retain sole and exclusive right, title and interest to the Service, including all copyrights, trade marks, trade secrets, and all other intellectual property rights thereto, including without limitation with respect to all technology and software (including compilations, underlying source code and applets) ("Software") and all text and graphics ("Materials") used in connection with or provided as part of the Services. All rights not expressly granted under this TOS are retained by RingCentral. Any new features provided by RingCentral shall also constitute "Services" and shall be subject to this TOS. "Affiliate" for the purposes of this TOS means an entity under Common Control with the relevant party to this TOS. An entity "Controls" another entity if it: holds a majority of the voting rights in it; is a member or shareholder of it and has the right to remove a majority of its board of directors or equivalent managing body; is a member or shareholder of it and controls alone or pursuant to an agreement with other shareholders or members, a majority of the voting rights in it; has the right to exercise a dominant influence over it pursuant to its constitutional documents or pursuant to a contract; and two entities are treated as being in "Common Control" if either controls the other (directly or indirectly) or both are controlled (directly or indirectly) by the same entity.
8. CHARGES, PLAN CREDITS AND CHARGEBACKS
Generally. You are responsible for paying all charges for your Account, including but not limited to, freephone, local, long distance, and directory assistance charges, and for all value added tax and other applicable taxes and surcharges imposed on you or us as a result of your use of the Service. Customers with a past due balance on previous or multiple accounts will be charged the full balance upon opening a new account or updating their credit card information on file. RingCentral also reserves the right to charge termination and transfer fees consistent with each plan's terms and conditions and as provided in this Terms of Service .
Plan Credits; Minutes of Calling. RingCentral offers several different Service plans. Some of the plans provide for a fixed number of monthly credits ("Monthly Credits"). If you exceed your Monthly Credits during the course of a month of Services, you may purchase additional credits ("Additional Credits") as needed. RingCentral may also provide you certain bonus credits minutes and/or other promotional incentives (e.g., "tell-a-friend" credits) and the like ("Promotional Credits"). All of these credits ("Plan Credits") are quoted in terms of domestic minute usage, and are thus sometime referred to as "minutes." As explained below, International Calling may be charged at a different rate than domestic calling, and a Plan Credit "minute" therefore will not entitle you to a minute of calling to some or all international points.
International Calling. Because Plan Credits are quoted for domestic minute usage, you may be charged additional Plan Credits and/or additional rates may apply if you use your Plan Credits for international calling. RingCentral's current International Rates may be found here International Calling. You are advised to refer to your specific Service plan details regarding all domestic and international charges and all other terms and conditions of your Service plan.
Value, Ownership, and Expiration of Plan Credits. Plan Credits have no monetary value. Plan Credits may only be redeemed by the holder of the Account to which the Plan Credits have been credited, and may not be sold, transferred, or assigned, or used by another user or with another user's Account. Any unused Monthly Credits expire at the end of the relevant Service month and do not "roll over" to the next month Additional Credits and Promotional Credits expire 12 months after purchase or grant.
Fraudulent or Erroneous Charges. RingCentral strongly encourages you to contact RingCentral directly in cases of suspected fraud or error involving your account. In most cases, RingCentral can correct fraudulent or erroneous charges without bank or credit card company intervention. If you suspect fraud or discover erroneous charges on your RingCentral account, please contact RingCentral customer support at 1 (888) 898-4591. When you contact customer support, please have the following information available: (a) your name, contact information, and the RingCentral Account telephone number in question, (b) the date that the Account in question was created, (c) the credit card account number used to open the Account, and (d) the total amount charged to the Account. If you request that your bank/credit card perform a chargeback without first contacting RingCentral and RingCentral subsequently determines that the charges at issue are not erroneous or fraudulent, RingCentral reserves the right to take any available legal action.
9. BILLING AND PAYMENT
Any applicable initiation charges, usage and monthly recurring charges and fees are billed in full in advance. Termination and transfer charges are billed in arrears. Upon termination of your account for any reason, all unused Plan Credits shall expire in their entirety and no refund or proration shall be made of any unused Plan Credits or of any remaining periods/months on any pre-paid Service plan.
When you subscribe to our service, you will provide us with a payment method, such as a valid credit card, and, if applicable, authorize us to collect from your payment method. Any authorization will remain valid until 30 days after you terminate our authority to charge your payment method. We will then charge you any outstanding charges on your account and disconnect your service. You will advise us of any changes to your payment method, such as credit card account number or expiration date changes. Time is of the essence for payment. Therefore, you agree to pay us interest at the lesser of (a) 2% above the base rate from time to time of the Royal Bank of Scotland or (b) the highest amount allowed by law for any amounts unpaid as of the due date. Acceptance of late or partial payments (even if marked "Paid in Full") shall not waive any of our rights to collect the full amount due.
Billing cycle end dates may change from time to time. When a billing cycle covers less than or more than a full month, we may make reasonable adjustments and prorations to charges to your Account.
10. EQUIPMENT RETURNS
You are responsible for all return shipping charges for any hardware returned to RingCentral for any reason, including situations in which hardware is covered under warranty. If you have purchased any hardware from us or we have otherwise provided you with any hardware and your Account is terminated for any reason after the end of any free-trial period and prior to the end of your first year of service, you hereby authorize us to immediately bill your credit card the full list-price of the hardware (if the hardware was provided for free) or for the balance of the list-price of the hardware (if the hardware was sold to you at a discounted price) if such hardware is not returned to and received by RingCentral in good working condition within 21 days of cancellation or disconnection. RingCentral will assess an additional £50 charge for any functioning equipment returned in poor condition (e.g., missing components and/or scratches).
11. REASONABLE USE
Unusually high usage of the Service attributable to individual Accounts may impair RingCentral’s ability to provide the Services and/or indicate misuse of the Services. Accordingly, for all Service Plans, reasonable use means that your use of the Service does not materially impair RingCentral’s ability to provide the Service to other users.
UNLIMITED OR UNMETERED PLANS
All unlimited or unmetered plans (“Unlimited Plans”) are subject to all of the Prohibited Use and Reasonable Use limitations set forth in the Reasonable Use Policy. In addition, all unlimited or unmetered plans are subject to the following terms and conditions:
- Unlimited Plans are for normal residential or business use.
- Unlimited Plans cannot, under any circumstances, be used for call-in lines, call centers, conference calling, trunking (to a PBX or otherwise), continuous or extensive call forwarding, autodialing, fax blasting, telemarketing (including without limitation charitable or political solicitation and/or polling), junk faxing, fax spamming, or other high volume or multi-person calling or faxing purposes.
- Excessive Use of Unlimited Plans is prohibited. “Excessive Use” means that your use exceeds the monthly minutes used by 98% of all RingCentral Unlimited Plan customers. Excessive Use is measured on a monthly basis. For example, if you use 7,500 minutes in one month and 98% of all RingCentral Unlimited Plan customers used less than 7,500 minutes that month, your use would constitute Excessive Use and would be in violation of the Reasonable Use Policy.
RingCentral reserves the right to review and monitor your usage of your Unlimited Plan at any time (i) to calculate Excessive Use and (ii) compliance with this Reasonable Use Policy, including that there is no Excessive Use.
Except where prohibited by law, if you violate the Reasonable Use Policy, including but not limited to by Excessive Use of the Service, you hereby acknowledge and agree that RingCentral may modify, suspend, terminate, disconnect or take any other reasonable action regarding your Service to prevent continued violation of this Reasonable Use Policy (a “Plan Modification”), including charging you on per minute basis, at RingCentral’s published per minute rates, for any Excess Use or automatically converting your Unlimited Plan to a metered plan. You hereby agree to pay RingCentral, and hereby authorize RingCentral to charge your credit card for any additional fees, charges and penalties related to any Plan Modification.
