RingCentral’s Phone Rental Agreement (“Rental Agreement”) is available to those customers who have entered into a Master Services Agreement, or similar contract with RingCentral Australia PTY LTD, or an affiliate thereof (collectively, the “MSA”), for the purchase of RingCentral MVP Services with a minimum Initial Term of at least twenty-four (24) months and a minimum automatic Renewal Term of at least twelve (12) months. For clarification, this Rental Agreement is contemporaneous with and conterminous with the RingCentral MVP Services subscription. The customer must enter into the Rental Agreement at the same time as the Start Date for the RingCentral MVP Services subscription. This Rental Agreement is offered and available for telephones that will be rented for use within Australia only.
The terms of the Rental Agreement are incorporated into the MSA and become effective upon the placing of an order for a Rental Device (defined below). In the event of differing terms or a conflict between the terms of the MSA and the Rental Agreement, the terms of the Rental Agreement will prevail. Any capitalised terms not defined herein will have the meaning ascribed to them in the MSA.
⦁ Rental Services
⦁ This Rental Agreement is for the rental of certain telephone hardware (each, a “Rental Device”) and repair/replacement from RingCentral (collectively, the “Rental Services”). RingCentral charges a recurring fee for each Rental Device (collectively, the “Rental Fees”). As a part of your recurring bill from RingCentral, you agree to pay the Rental Fees for all Rental Devices. The Rental Fees do not include additional services you may select, taxes, or fees. Sales tax varies by jurisdiction of rental and may be calculated based on full list price or RingCentral cost, as required by the tax law in the jurisdiction where the Rental Device is installed.
⦁ The Rental Fees for Rental Services will begin on the Start Date of the initial Order Form for the RingCentral MVP Services subscription and shall continue for the minimal Initial Term of at least twenty-four (24) months. Upon expiration of the Initial Term, Rental Services will automatically renew in accordance with the Order Form (each a “Renewal Term”) unless, beginning with the first Renewal Term, either Party gives notice of non-renewal of Rental Services at least thirty (30) days before the expiration of the then-current Renewal Term. Notwithstanding the above, at any time with thirty (30) days prior written notice either party may terminate this Rental Agreement. Customer is responsible for the cost of return packaging and shipping for any return of Rental Devices.
⦁ Upon any termination of the Rental Agreement or Rental Services, you agree to return the Rental Device(s) (including all accessories and materials that were originally provided with the Rental Device(s)) consistent with RingCentral’s written instructions and in accordance with Section C (i) below. If you do not return a Rental Device(s) within thirty (30) days following the termination, you will be automatically deemed to have purchased the Rental Device(s) pursuant to Section C (ii) below, no invoice will be issued and the amount owed shall be due immediately.
⦁ Rental Devices Ownership; Damage and Loss. RingCentral is and will remain the owner of each Rental Device unless title is conveyed to you in writing following RingCentral’s confirmation to you of its receipt of your payment in full of the purchase price for the Rental Device. You will not (i) grant any third party any right to use, possess, or control any Rental Device, (ii) rent any Rental Device to any third party, (iii) attempt to dispose of any Rental Device, (iv) grant any interest or right in a Rental Device to any third party, or (iv) assign any claims, offsets, or defenses you may have against RingCentral. Upon RingCentral’s request, you will execute and deliver to RingCentral any documents or forms for protecting RingCentral’s ownership and interest in each Rental Device, including finance statements under the Uniform Commercial Code.
⦁ You have five (5) business days upon receipt of each Rental Device to notify RingCentral of any damage or functional issues with a Rental Device. If you don’t provide such notice, each Rental Device is deemed to be in good working order at the time of receipt.
⦁ In the event that any Rental Device delivered to you is stolen, lost, damaged, or transferred to any third party, regardless of the circumstances or cause, you will immediately notify RingCentral in writing and pay RingCentral the purchase price as determined in Section C (ii), unless the event occurs in the first 12 months of the Initial Term, in which case the purchase price will be the full list price for the Rental Device.
⦁ Rental Device Usage
You will ensure that: (a) each Rental Device will only be used in a careful and proper manner and in accordance with the written instructions provided with it by RingCentral, as may be updated by RingCentral or the manufacturer of the Rental Device from time to time; (b) each Rental Device will be used with due care and will not be defaced, modified, used or operated in any manner or for any purpose in violation of any federal, state, or local law or regulation; (c) each Rental Device must remain within Australia and may not be exported or re-exported to any country; (d) any regulatory or certification markers affixed to a Rental Device may not be removed, defaced, or otherwise obstructed; and (e) each Rental Device will only be repaired subject to RingCentral’s express written authorisation and in accordance with RingCentral’s instructions and requirements.
⦁ All Rental Devices returned must be fully functional, and must include all components, manuals, peripheral devices, and all other accessories that were originally shipped with the Rental Device. If the Rental Device is not fully functional, you will be obligated to pay RingCentral the purchase price pursuant to Section C (ii) below, unless the return occurs in the first 12 months of the Initial Term, in which case the purchase price will be the full list price for the Rental Device. Apart from the Rental Device and at our discretion, we may charge you an additional fee of thirty dollars ($30.00) for each missing item or for each item that we determine is damaged or not in good working condition.
⦁ Except for Rental Devices returned pursuant to A(III) and A(V), for each functioning Rental Device that is returned regardless of the reason, you will be obligated to pay RingCentral a twenty-five dollars ($25.00) recovery fee. You agree to pay all packaging, shipping and handling charges related to any Rental Device and related hardware returns.
⦁ Before returning any Rental Device or hardware that has data in its memory, you are solely responsible to transfer all files you wish to retain. Once the Rental Device and related hardware is returned, your files cannot be recovered and you release us of any liability for any lost, damaged, or destroyed files, data, or other information.
You may purchase a Rental Device(s) at any time following 12 months from the date you received the Rental Device(s) provided you are current on your payment of Rental Fees, as follows:
⦁ 12 months - purchase price is 70% of list price;
⦁ 24 months - purchase price is 60% of list price;
⦁ 36 months - purchase price is 50% of list price;
⦁ 48 months - purchase price is 40% of list price; and
⦁ 60 months - purchase price is 30% of list price.
