9. Digital Millennium Copyright Act

Pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (17 U.S.C. § 512) (the “DMCA”) upon good faith belief that copyrighted content transmitted via RingCentral is infringed, the copyright owner or its agent may send RingCentral a notice requesting removal of the infringing content or blocking access to it. Also, the DMCA allows a party against whom a notice of copyright infringement has been filed to submit a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements implemented by the DMCA. Notices and counter-notices may be sent to RingCentral’s registered copyright agent at the following postal address or optionally our email address:

    RingCentral, Inc.

    20 Davis Drive

    Belmont, CA 94002

    U.S.A.


    legal@ringcentral.com

The notice must include: (i) an electronic or physical signature of the owner (or person authorized to act on behalf of the owner) of the copyrighted work; (ii) a description of the copyrighted work that is claimed to have been infringed upon; (iii) information reasonably sufficient to permit RingCentral to locate the copyrighted work; (iv) address, telephone number, and e-mail address of the owner of the copyrighted work; (v) a statement by the owner of the copyrighted work or its agent asserting good-faith belief that the use in question is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (vi) a statement by the owner of the copyrighted work or its agent, made under penalty of perjury, that the foregoing information in the notice is accurate and affirming ownership of the copyright or authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf.

Any notice or counter-notice must be truthful and must be submitted under penalty of perjury. A false notice or counter-notice may give rise to personal liability. Parties should seek the advice of legal counsel before submitting a notice or counter-notice. Upon receipt of the notice, RingCentral may make a good faith attempt to transmit the notice to the party who has transmitted or received the allegedly infringing copyrighted work, and to transmit any counter-notification to the complaining party. RingCentral may, at its sole discretion, suspend, terminate, or disconnect ’s access to any use of the Plan Services or Customer account if it is deemed that such party has engaged in one or more instance of copyright infringement.

 

10. Governing Law, Venue, and Dispute Resolution

The laws of the state of California, U.S.A., excluding its conflicts-of-law rules, govern this Agreement and your use of the RingCentral Services. You agree that any disputes between you and RingCentral shall be adjudicated in the state and federal courts of the State of California, U.S.A. Venue for all claims and disputes between you and RingCentral shall be the appropriate courts located in the City and County of San Francisco, California. You hereby consent to venue and personal jurisdiction in such courts with respect to such claims or disputes and irrevocably waive any right that such party may have to assert that such forum is not convenient or that any such court lacks jurisdiction.

Notwithstanding the adjudication requirement above, for any dispute involving $10,000 or less, the party requesting relief may choose to resolve the dispute through binding, non-appearance-based arbitration (i.e., arbitration conducted online, through written filings, and/or via teleconference). Such arbitration shall be conducted through an established alternative dispute resolution service mutually agreed on by the parties, and any judgment rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.

Some jurisdictions may place limits on governing law, venue, and/or dispute resolution provisions, so certain of the foregoing requirements in this section may not apply to you.

 

11. Severability

If any portion of these terms and conditions is determined to be unenforceable under applicable law, that portion shall be construed as nearly as possible to reflect the original intentions of the parties. All remaining terms set forth herein shall continue to have full force and effect.
