Updated January 26, 2024
Version number :  1.2

These RingCentral Purchase Order Terms & Conditions (“Terms”) govern the purchase of goods, including products, equipment, hardware, software, merchandise and materials (“Products”) and services (“Services”) by RingCentral, Inc. or its affiliates (“RingCentral”) under purchase orders issued by RingCentral (each a “Purchase Order”) to the vendor entity identified in the Purchase Order (“Vendor”), and together with the Purchase Order, form a binding agreement (“Agreement”), between RingCentral and Vendor. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if RingCentral and Vendor have mutually signed a separate written agreement governing the purchase of the Products or Services specified in a Purchase Order (“Parent Agreement”), then the Parent Agreement shall apply to those Products or Services.

Any additional or different terms in any Vendor document, including a quotation, order acknowledgment, invoice, or online terms are hereby rejected and shall not constitute additional or modified terms. Any such terms shall be deemed material alterations of the Agreement and are void. Any online terms or agreement that RingCentral accepts to login or access Products or Services, such as a software-as-a-service (“SaaS”), is not an agreement that has been “mutually signed”, is not deemed a Parent Agreement, and will not replace, supplement or amend any portion of the Agreement.

These Terms are deemed accepted by (i) Vendor’s commencement of performance of the Services, (ii) Vendor’s shipment of any Products specified in a Purchase Order, or (iii) any other indication of Vendor’s agreement to a Purchase Order, whichever occurs first.

1.   Shipment and Delivery. Unless otherwise specified in a Purchase Order, all shipments shall be DDP (Incoterms 2010) to RingCentral’s ship to location specified in the Purchase Order. Title and risk of loss will transfer from Vendor to RingCentral at the delivery destination. Vendor will package and ship Products in accordance with RingCentral’s instructions, and if none are provided, then according to good commercial practice to protect Products from loss or damage. Vendor shall observe the requirements of any local laws and regulations relating to hazardous work, including, with respect to its accompanying information, packing, labeling, reporting, carriage, and disposal. Vendor shall deliver Products and Services strictly in accordance with the Purchase Order. Any delays shall be reported promptly to RingCentral with a proposed new delivery date and expedited shipping at Vendor’s expense. RingCentral may (a) cancel the Purchase Order for delayed Products that are not yet delivered, or (b) source replacements from another vendor, at Vendor’s reasonable expense. RingCentral may reschedule or change the delivery destination for Products, or change the Services, under a Purchase Order at no change in cost to RingCentral unless the requested change materially increases or decreases the cost to Vendor, in which case the parties will negotiate an appropriate adjustment. Vendor will not unreasonably withhold or delay agreement to any change requested by RingCentral. Where Vendor is responsible for importing or exporting Products, Vendor shall obtain all necessary authorizations and permits to fulfill all applicable government requirements for shipment. Vendor will provide RingCentral with any information reasonably requested regarding the importation, exportation, or distribution of Products.

2.   Inspection, Acceptance and Rejection. RingCentral may inspect Products and Services upon delivery and in accordance with any acceptance criteria. Unless otherwise agreed, Products and Services not rejected within thirty (30) days will be deemed accepted, however, RingCentral’s payment for Products or Services shall not be deemed acceptance. RingCentral may reject all or any portion of defective Products or nonconforming Services. If RingCentral rejects any portion of the Products or Services, RingCentral may: (a) return rejected Products for a prompt replacement, at Vendor’s sole cost and expense (including shipping costs); (b) return rejected Products with no further liability for payment and/or seek a refund of any payments made under the Purchase Order; or (c) accept the Products at a reasonably reduced price. If Vendor fails to timely deliver replacement Products, RingCentral may source replacements from another vendor, at Vendor’s reasonable expense. Any inspection or other action by RingCentral under this Section shall not reduce or otherwise affect Vendor's obligations under the Agreement, and RingCentral shall have the right to conduct further inspections after Vendor has carried out its remedial actions.

3.   Payment. RingCentral will pay Vendor the price set forth in the Purchase Order (“Price”) within sixty (60) days of receipt of a properly prepared invoice except for any amounts disputed by RingCentral in good faith. Vendor will invoice RingCentral upon acceptance of Products or Services by submitting properly prepared invoices to [email protected]. Properly prepared invoices will include at a minimum the Purchase Order number, complete bill-to address, product part numbers and quantities, description of Products or Services, unit prices, applicable tax or other charges, and extended totals. Taxes are not included in the Price and will be separately itemized on invoices, if applicable. RingCentral will pay sales, use, value-added taxes, or any similar transaction taxes which the law requires Vendor to collect from RingCentral unless RingCentral provides a valid tax exemption certificate. RingCentral has no liability for any taxes based on Vendor’s assets or income or for which RingCentral has an appropriate resale or other exemption. RingCentral will withhold taxes if legally required. Without prejudice to any other right or remedy it may have, RingCentral reserves the right to set off at any time any amount owing to it by Vendor against any amount payable by RingCentral to Vendor. Vendor will timely provide customary tax documentation reasonably requested by RingCentral. Invoice inquiries shall be submitted to [email protected].
