RINGCENTRAL TERMS OF SERVICE

Last Updated: October 20, 2017

1. INTRODUCTION

These Terms of Service (the “TOS”), together with the RingCentral privacy policy available here https://www.ringcentral.com/sg/legal/privacy-policy.html (the “Privacy Policy”) and any other supplementary documents (together, the “Agreement”) constitute the entire agreement between RingCentral Singapore Pte Ltd., a company registered in Singapore with Company Registration No.: 201526036Z (“RingCentral”) and you, either as an individual trader, or acting on behalf of any entity that you represent (“You” and “Your”), as the user of the Services, Applications and/or Website. The Agreement governs Your use of the Services, Applications and Website provided by RingCentral. These TOS were previously known as the End User License Agreement and Terms of Service; and any references to the “End User License Agreement” or the “EULA TOS” in any RingCentral publications, notices, or agreements refer to these TOS.

By using or accessing the Services, Applications or the Website, You confirm that You accept and will comply with the Agreement. You represent and warrant that: (i) You possess the legal right and capacity to enter into the Agreement with RingCentral and to perform all of Your obligations thereunder; (ii) You are of legal age to enter into this Agreement; (iii) You have full power and authority to execute and deliver any agreement documents and to perform all of Your obligations thereunder; (v) if You accept on behalf of an organisation, You are authorised to bind that organisation, and references to "You" in the Agreement expressly includes, without limitation, the entity You represent; and (iv) You shall be bound by the Agreement.

Any capitalised terms set forth below not otherwise defined have the meanings set forth in Section 2 (“Definitions”) below.

2. ACCESS TO EMERGENCY SERVICES

Access to Singapore emergency services such as 999, 995 and 993 (“Singapore Emergency Services”) are provided only by RingCentral on Singapore Local (level “6”) numbers, and not on VoIP (level “3”) numbers. Otherwise, Singapore Emergency Services are not provided or available on the RingCentral software applications and services (including without limitation some soft phones). If you subscribe to one of the other RingCentral software applications or services, you must make alternative arrangements to access Singapore Emergency Services, such as using a traditional landline or mobile telephone, and you should not rely on RingCentral to make emergency calls.

NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT YOU HAVE A MEANS FOR PLACING EMERGENCY CALLS AVAILABLE AT ALL TIMES AND YOU SHOULD NOT RELY ON RINGCENTRAL TO CALL EMERGENCY SERVICES.

Operation and Limitations of the RingCentral Emergency Calling Services

A. RingCentral Provides Access to Emergency Calling Services.

RingCentral provides access to emergency calling services, allowing most RingCentral Office users to access Singapore Emergency Services (e.g., 999, 995, and 993). Emergency calling services work differently with the RingCentral Plan Services than You may have experienced using traditional wireline or wireless telephones. It is strongly recommended that You have an alternative means for placing emergency calls available at all times.

RingCentral Office users using IP Desk Phones or 999-Enabled Softphones can dial emergency numbers directly from their IP Desk Phones or 999-Enabled Softphone. EMERGENCY CALLS CANNOT BE PLACED THROUGH SOFTPHONES THAT ARE NOT 999-ENABLED.

For purposes of these Online Terms “IP Desk Phone” means a telephony hardware device that uses VoIP to place and transmit; “911-Enabled Softphone” means a softphone for which the RingCentral 911 Service is supported as identified in a pop-up notification within the Softphone application.

Calls to emergency numbers placed through the RingCentral Mobile Application on a smartphone are automatically routed to the native dialer on the smartphone, and the call will be handled by Your wireless service provider if wireless service is available. If Your wireless service is unavailable, the emergency call cannot be placed. The RingCentral Mobile Application cannot place emergency calls over Wi-Fi access. Emergency dialing is not available through the RingCentral Mobile Application on tablets or other mobile devices without a native phone dialer and a wireless service plan.

B. How it Works.

When a RingCentral Office user dials 999, 995, or 993 on an IP Desk Phone or 999-Enabled Softphone, the RingCentral phone number and the Registered Address You have provided is sent to the local emergency center serving Your location. In some areas, emergency operators have access to this information; however, in areas where only basic 999 service is available, the emergency operator answering the call may not be able to see Your RingCentral telephone number or Your Registered Address. You should always be prepared to provide the emergency operator with Your RingCentral telephone number and Registered Address in case the call is dropped or disconnected. If You are unable to speak, the emergency operator may not be able to send help to Your location and/or call You back should the call be disconnected. RingCentral does not control whether or not the emergency operator receives Your telephone number and Registered Address.

Emergency dialing with Your Plan Service works differently than emergency dialing over traditional phone service. In some cases, emergency calls dialed from Your RingCentral Office device cannot be directed to the local emergency response center. That might happen if there is a problem validating a Registered Address, if the Registered Address is an international location, or if the Registered Address is in an area that is not covered by the landline emergency network. Any such emergency calls may not include Your RingCentral telephone number or Your registered address. Emergency responders may request Your name, location, and telephone number and attempt to reach emergency responders in Your local area. If so, the operator may not be able to call You back or dispatch help to Your location until You provide Your phone number, and location, or if the call is dropped or disconnected.

C. Service limitations.

RingCentral Emergency Services will not function in the event of an Internet or power outage, if You do not have cellular service (on the RingCentral Mobile Application), or if Your broadband, ISP, or RingCentral Office service is terminated. The RingCentral Mobile Application cannot send emergency calls over Wi-Fi access. It is possible that network congestion may delay or prevent completion of an emergency call. RingCentral Emergency Services may not be available if You are dialing from a RingCentral number that is not a Local Singapore (“level 6”) number.

D. Registering Your Location.

You agree to register with RingCentral immediately upon activation of Your Account the address of the physical location where You will use the RingCentral Office Service for each Digital Line, including each IP Desk Phone and each 999-Enabled Softphone. This is Your Registered Address. You agree that You will accurately register each individual line through the Account Admin Portal for the applicable End User. You and Your End Users shall use the Plan Services at the Registered Address provided for the applicable Digital Line. If You or Your End Users move a registered device, You agree to immediately update the Registered Address with the new physical location of the device with RingCentral through the Admin Portal or in Your account settings. You acknowledge that if You do not update the Registered Address, any emergency calls made from the device may be sent to the wrong emergency response center and will not transmit Your current location information to emergency responders, delaying emergency assistance to You. It may take one or more days for the address update to take effect. Customers with more than one line or extension are solely responsible for ensuring that an accurate and up-to-date Registered Address is maintained for each IP Desk Phone and each 999-Enabled Softphone, and that their End Users are aware of how the Registered Address can be changed.

E. Notification of Employees, Guests, or Other Users.

You agree to notify any employees, contractors, guests, or persons who may place calls using the Office Services or may be present at the physical location where the Office Services may be used, of the limitations of RingCentral Emergency Services from Your RingCentral Office IP phone, other equipment or the RingCentral 911-Enabled Softphone. You agree to affix a RingCentral-provided sticker warning that emergency services may be limited or unavailable in a readily visible place on each piece of equipment that might be used to access or use the Office Services. You and Your End Users should always have an alternative means for placing emergency calls.

F. Disclaimer of Liability for Emergency Call Response.

You acknowledge and agree that Your use, and use by Your employees and/or guests or other third parties, of RingCentral’s Emergency Services are subject to the limitations described herein. The availability of certain features, such as transmission of a Registered Address or Your RingCentral telephone number, depends on whether local emergency response centers support those features, and are factors outside of RingCentral’s control. RingCentral relies on third parties to assist us in routing emergency calls and text messages to local emergency response centers. RingCentral does not have control over local emergency response centers, emergency responders, or other third parties. RingCentral disclaims all responsibility for the conduct of local emergency response centers, and all other third parties involved in the provision of emergency response services. Accordingly, to the extent permitted by applicable Law, You hereby release, discharge, and hold harmless RingCentral from and against any and all liability relating to or arising from any acts or omissions of such third parties or other third parties involved in the handling of or response to any emergency or emergency call. You agree to indemnify and hold harmless RingCentral, and any third-party provider(s) from any and all third party claims, losses, damages, fines, or penalties arising out of: (i) Your provision to RingCentral of incorrect information, including physical addresses, or Your failure to update Your Registered Address; (ii) Your failure to properly notify any person who may place calls using the Office Services of the Emergency Services limitations; or (iii) the absence, failure, or outage of emergency service dialing using the Office Services for any reason; and (iv) the inability of any user of the Office Services to be able to dial 999, 995, or 993, or access emergency service personnel for any reason.

  • ACCORDINGLY, YOU AGREE THAT RINGCENTRAL SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR- AND AGREE TO FULLY, FINALLY, AND FOREVER RELEASE, DISCHARGE, INDEMNIFY, AND HOLD HARMLESS RINGCENTRAL FROM AND AGAINST ANY CLAIM BASED ON, RESULTING FROM, OR RELATING TO- ANY ACTS OR OMISSIONS RELATED TO THE HANDLING OF, OR NOT HANDLING OF, OR RESPONSE, OR LACK OF RESPONSE, TO ANY EMERGENCY CALL OR OTHER COMMUNICATION IN CONNECTION WITH THE RGO SERVICE.

5. SERVICE REQUIREMENTS AND LIMITATIONS

A. Caller ID Display Limitations and Compliance

You acknowledge and agree that the disclosure and/or display of information related to the origination of calls, messages, and other communications (including without limitation ‘Caller ID’ information) may be subject to legal requirements including, without limitation those related to the accurate display of such information or the enforcement of certain privacy instructions, settings, etc. You agree to comply with all such applicable Laws. RingCentral has no obligation to disclose, display, or transmit any such information for or in connection with any User Communication.

B. Voice-to-Text and Text-to-Voice

You acknowledge and agree that: (i) any and all Voice/Text Features are provided merely as a convenience and may not accurately transcribe voice content, articulate text messages, or perform such functionality for all voice content or text messages or for the entirety of voice content or text messages; (ii) neither You nor any End User may rely on any Voice/Text Feature to perform such accurate transcription or articulation; and (iii) You and all End Users shall be responsible for reviewing and/or listening to the original content of any User Communication or other media as necessary or appropriate to prevent You, any End User, or any other party from incurring any cost, expense, liability, loss, damage, or harm.

C. IP Network Sufficiency

You acknowledge and agree that: (i) the Plan Services require a properly-configured, high performance, enterprise-grade broadband IP network and connection; (ii) use of the Plan Services with any lesser network, services, or connection may result in partial or complete unavailability, interruption, or under-performance of the Plan Services or other services utilising the same network, services, or connection; and (iii) 3G or 4G networks are not recommended for use with the Plan Services. Accordingly, you agree to provide and maintain, at Your cost, an IP network, services, and connection meeting the foregoing standards and all equipment necessary for the Plan Services to connect to and use such network, services, and connection. RingCentral is not liable for any unavailability, interruption, or under-performance of the Plan Services related to your IP network or connection.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION. If Your IP network or connection fails, Your voice service will also fail. Your service may cease to function if there is a power cut or failure. These failures may be caused by reasons outside of RingCentral’s control.

D. Use of Third Party Devices

RingCentral does not guarantee or make any representation or warranty that any third party IP telephone or other device will work, or be compatible, with the Plan Services or support the Plan Services’ full performance or quality of service potential or range of features and functionalities.

E. Use of Mobile Application

The RingCentral Mobile Application can be configured to make or receive calls on Your 3G or 4G network using Your data service, and may result in additional data usage fees from Your mobile service provider. You can disable 3G/4G calling by configuring the RingCentral Mobile Application to make/receive calls only over a wi-fi connection. Configuring the RingCentral Mobile Application to disable VoIP calling will result in RingCentral making/receiving calls using Your voice connection from Your mobile service provider; this may result in additional voice minute usage fees from Your mobile service provider.

6. NUMBER POLICIES

A. Number Availability

RingCentral may make available telephone and/or facsimile numbers for Your selection and assignment to Account(s). You acknowledge and agree that a RingCentral Party’s listing of a number may be erroneous and does not constitute a representation or guarantee that such number is actually available for such assignment, and that the RingCentral Parties shall be authorised to remove such number from an Account in the event that it is not available.

B. Number Publication

Neither You nor any End User may publicise, list, or communicate any number that you believe to be assigned to Your Plan Services or Account, or purchase or invest in any materials or media reflecting any such number unless and until You have verified that such number is active and functioning as desired, including, without limitation, by test calling such number from a non-RingCentral service plan and verifying that the fees and charges that will be incurred in connection with Use of such number are acceptable to You. You agree to hold harmless all RingCentral Parties arising from or related to Your or any End User’s violation of the immediately preceding sentence.

Number Porting Policy

RingCentral will use reasonable commercial endeavours to facilitate number transfers or port requests for You, provided it is reasonably practicable to do so and that You comply with the necessary and specific procedures for porting between service providers. You acknowledge and accept that number porting depends on the co-operation of third parties outside of RingCentral’s control, including but not limited to RingCentral’s suppliers of level “3” and/or level “6” numbers. Accordingly, You agree that RingCentral will not be liable for the failure or delay of any third party to cooperate in the porting of any telephone number, or for the allegedly unauthorised porting of any telephone number by a third party.

  • I. Number Port-In Request Procedures. In order to request the porting of a telephone or facsimile number into an Account, the Account Administrator for the Account into which You wish the telephone or facsimile number to be ported must log in to the Admin Portal for such Account and complete all steps and provide all information requested as part of the number port-in request process (which may include without limitation providing an executed Letter of Agency) or as otherwise requested by RingCentral. In addition, if You wish to port into an Account more than 100 telephone or facsimile numbers from the same third party service provider account, You must contact RingCentral’s Project Porting Department at project.porting@ringcentral.com and comply with their instructions.
  • II. The Number Porting Process. In order to request the porting out to another services provider of a telephone or facsimile number currently assigned to an Account, You must follow the instructions specified by that services provider and must provide all information and cooperation requested by the relevant other services providers, RingCentral, or any other relevant third party. You acknowledge and agree that: (i) the porting of telephone or facsimile numbers into or out of an Account requires Your provision of specific and detailed information to RingCentral and/or third parties (including without limitation other services providers) and completion of certain steps and procedures, as well as third parties’ completion of certain steps; and (ii) numbers may not be ported into or out of an Account unless and until You are able to provide certain specific information that matches other information on record with RingCentral or other services providers. For these and other reasons, the completion of any number port request and the timing of and date by which any such request may be completed depend on a number of factors outside of RingCentral’s control, including without limitation the acts and omissions of both You and third parties, including without limitation other services providers.
  • III. Unauthorized Port Outs. You acknowledge and agree that telephone or facsimile numbers may be ported out from Your Plan Services or an Account due to acts or omissions of third parties, and it may be difficult or impossible for RingCentral to: (i) prevent such port-outs: (ii) retrieve numbers ported-out of an Account; or (iii) port such numbers back into an Account. RingCentral has no responsibility or liability due to such port-outs.
  • IV. Accurate Porting Information. You agree, represent and warrant that all information or representations provided in connection with any request to port in or port out numbers (including without limitation any information or representations in any Letter of Agency) by You, any User or End User, or any party acting on behalf of, at the direction or request of, or with the permission or knowledge of any of the foregoing shall be true, accurate, and up-to-date.
  • V. Customer Compliance with Porting Laws. You acknowledge and agree that the porting of numbers is subject to telecommunications and other Laws and may be subject to third party terms and conditions. You agree, represent, and warrant that neither You; nor any User or End User; nor any party acting on behalf of, at the direction or request of, or with the permission or knowledge of any of the foregoing will at any time: (i) violate any applicable Law or engage in any fraudulent or deceptive conduct in its porting-related requests or activities; (ii) engage in or facilitate “slamming” or the porting out of any telephone or facsimile number or change or attempt to change any party’s telephony service provider without first obtaining the proper, requisite consents and authorizations; or (iii) violate contractual or other obligations to service providers or other third parties.

Release of Numbers. You acknowledge that in the event of account termination or cancellation, all telephone numbers associated with Your Account, which have not previously been ported to another provider, may be released. Similarly, the cancellation of individual lines may result in the release of the related numbers if those numbers have not previously been ported to another provider. You acknowledge that You are solely responsible for working with a third-party provider to port out any numbers prior to termination or cancellation of Your Account or Plan Services, or any individual line.

7. CHARGES AND PLAN CREDITS

Please note that all prices, Taxes, surcharges, and fees are subject to change at any time, except to the extent such charges are set by agreement between You and RingCentral for a specified term. You are responsible for paying all charges for Your Account, including but not limited to toll -free, local, long distance, international minutes, additional feature charges, operator assisted charges, directory assistance charges, and for all Taxes, surcharges, and fees imposed on Your Account or us as a result of Your use of the Plan Service. Customers with a past due balance on previous or multiple accounts will be charged the full balance, including but not limited to any Taxes or Fees as defined in this TOS or any applicable Office Agreement, any late fees, service change fees, and fees for chargebacks or returned checks, upon opening a new account or updating their credit card information on file.

A. Charges and Plan Credits

RingCentral offers several different Plan options in connection with the provision of the Services. You may change Your Plan at any time; however, a one-time processing fee of fourteen Singapore dollars S$14.00 may apply when ‘downgrading’ an existing Plan to a Plan with lower monthly fees (e.g., a plan with fewer minutes and/or features). In addition, certain Plans may entitle You to receive discounts on equipment used in connection with a particular Service. If You receive any equipment discounts associated with a Plan and subsequently change to an alternative Plan that does not offer those equipment discounts, You agree to reimburse RingCentral, and hereby authorise RingCentral to charge Your credit card on file, or invoice You, as applicable, for such equipment discounts.

B. Service Availability

You acknowledge and agree that the products and Services provided by RingCentral may not be available one hundred percent (100%) of the time. Credit allowances for interruption of the Plan Services may only be provided on a case-by-case basis at the sole discretion of RingCentral and shall be Your sole remedy for any Plan Services interruptions or other issues with the Plan Services.

C. Plan Credits and Minutes

Some Plans provide for a fixed number of monthly usage minutes ("Plan Credits"). If You exceed Your monthly Plan Credits during the course of a month, You may purchase additional Plan Credits as needed. RingCentral may also provide You with certain bonus credit minutes and/or other promotional incentives (e.g., ‘tell-a-friend’ credits) upon fulfilment of the applicable promotion requirements. 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 international calling (“International Minutes”).

D. Metered Calling Plans

RingCentral offers several monthly metered Plans for some of its products and services. Each metered calling Plan provides You with a toll-free or local telephone number and a fixed number of Plan Credits each month for a monthly fee, excluding Taxes, surcharges, and fees. When You exhaust Your initial paid allotment of Plan Credits for Your metered Plan then, unless You advise RingCentral otherwise in writing, RingCentral will automatically bill Your Account for the smallest available bundle of Plan Credits for the applicable Service. Additional minute usage will be debited at the applicable per minute rate(s) for Your metered Plan. However, in some limited instances, calls placed under a metered Plan may not be counted against Your monthly allotment (e.g., calls made via a local phone number to leave or check voicemail or configure a system and calls answered on a Softphone). Please check the details of Your metered Plan to determine which calls (if any) are not counted against Your monthly minute allotment. For international calling, international rates will apply.

E. Unlimited Plan

RingCentral offers unlimited monthly Plans for some of its products and Services. An unlimited Plan provides You with a local or toll-free telephone number and is subject to the terms and restrictions of the Agreement. If, for any reason, RingCentral believes that Your usage of the unlimited Plan and Services violates the Agreement, then RingCentral may after advance notice and a reasonable opportunity have been given to You to remedy the violation, either terminate Your unlimited Plan or immediately convert Your unlimited Plan to a metered Plan, as described above.

F. Value, Ownership, and Expiration of Credits or Minutes

In no event shall any entitlement to toll-free minutes, International Minutes, Billing Credit, Plan Credit, or any other type of credit or minute issued to You or applied to an Account (collectively “Account Credits”) have any monetary value or be exchangeable or exchanged for cash. Account Credits may be applied only to the Account for which they were purchased and/or provided, and may not be sold, transferred, assigned, or applied to any other Account, Plan, or customer. Credited toll-free minutes not applied to Usage on the applicable Account during the monthly billing cycle for which they are credited shall expire at the end of such cycle and shall in no event be available for application to Usage occurring during any other period. Other Account Credits shall expire according to the terms of their purchase or provision.

G. Discounts

From time to time in its sole discretion, RingCentral may offer promotions or discounts. Any promotion or discount codes must be provided to RingCentral upon purchase of the Plan Services. You are not entitled to a subsequent credit for any promotions or discounts if You do not request the promotion or discount credit at the time of Account creation or change of Plan. Promotions and/or discounts may not be used cumulatively or retroactively.

8. BILLING AND PAYMENT

A. Plan Services Fees

The initial Order sets forth the base recurring Plan Fees for the Plan Services and the number of minutes of inbound Usage of any toll-free number(s) assigned to an Account, if any, that are included in the Plan Fees for each monthly billing cycle. Any applicable initiation charges, Usage, monthly recurring charges, support charges, Taxes, and other fees are billed in full in advance. Termination fees, international minutes, equipment return fees and transfer charges, if any, are billed in arrears. Subject to the Agreement, upon termination of Your Account for any reason, all unused Account Credits shall expire in their entirety on the termination date. No refund, transfer or proration shall be made of any unused Plan Credits, Promotional Credits, or International Minutes or any other credits to Your Account.

B. Taxes and Fees

All fees for Services advertised or otherwise listed on the Website are exclusive of any Taxes. You agree to pay all Taxes and similar liabilities that may now or hereafter be levied on the Plan Services and related software or hardware by any Law, as well as any administrative and recovery fees and charges levied on the Plan Services by RingCentral, whether or not mandated by Law. Should RingCentral pay or be required to pay such liabilities (including any Taxes that were due but not charged or previously collected), You agree that RingCentral may charge Your credit card on file or invoice You, as applicable, for such payments upon receipt of an invoice and showing of indebtedness to RingCentral.

C. Billing for Mid-Year or Mid-Month Transactions

In the event that any purchase, transaction, or event involving or resulting in an annually-incurred or monthly-incurred Plan Fee occurs subsequent to the beginning of an applicable billing cycle, RingCentral may at that time bill You a pro-rated amount for the remainder of the then-current cycle and thereafter bill You conterminously with each subsequent cycle.

D. Late Fees

You agree and acknowledge that time is of the essence for payment of all fees and charges. Any fees or charges not paid when due shall incur interest at a rate of the lesser of: (i) twelve percent (12%) per annum; or (ii)the highest rate allowed by Law. RingCentral’s acceptance of late or partial payments (regardless of how they are marked or designated (including without limitation as ‘Paid in Full’, ‘Accord and Satisfaction’, or similarly)) shall not waive, limit, or prejudice in any way RingCentral’s rights to collect any amount due. RingCentral may terminate the Plan Services and the Agreement for non-payment if any fees or charges are not paid within thirty (30) days of the due date.

E. Form of Payment

All fees and charges are payable to RingCentral by cheque, credit or debit card, or General Interbank Recurring Order (“GIRO”). If cheque payment is used, you agree to be charged a processing fee to be imposed in the event a cheque is returned and/or rejected by the bank.

When You subscribe to Plan Services, You will provide us with a payment method, such as a valid credit card or GIRO information for invoicing (if You are pre-approved by RingCentral in its sole discretion to be billed via invoice) and, if applicable, authorise RingCentral to collect from the payment method provided. Any authorisation to charge a provided credit card or GIRO will remain valid until thirty (30) days after You withdraw the authorisation, or immediately upon provision of a replacement valid credit card or GIRO information. Upon termination of the Agreement, RingCentral will charge You any fees and any other outstanding charges and disconnect Your Plan Services. You agree to advise and notify us of any changes to Your payment method, such as credit card or GIRO account number or expiration date changes. If the credit card, GIRO or other payment method on Your Account is declined or fails for any reason, RingCentral will use reasonable efforts to contact You and advise You of the failed billing attempts.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, RingCentral reserves the right to disconnect Your Plan Services and terminate Your Account if Your payment method is declined or fails for any reason, or if You withdraw authorisation to charge a valid credit and do not provide an alternative payment method, and RingCentral reserves the right to continue to attempt charging Your credit card for any outstanding charges and additional fees and pursue any other legal remedies available to RingCentral.

F. Disputed Amounts

You will waive the right to dispute any billed amount if You do not dispute such amount within thirty (30) days of the date of its billing. If You fail to provide a written statement explaining in reasonable detail Your reasons for disputing the charge within such time period, You hereby irrevocably waive any objection and further recourse with regard to such charges. In the event that You timely dispute a billed amount and RingCentral confirms that You were over-billed, RingCentral shall credit the applicable Account in the amount of the over-billing (“Billing Credits”). Billing Credits shall be RingCentral’s sole and exclusive obligation and Your sole and exclusive remedy with respect to any erroneous billing.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, if You request Your bank or credit card company to cancel a transaction or to decline to process a cheque without first contacting RingCentral to dispute the charge, and RingCentral subsequently determines that the charges at issue are not erroneous, RingCentral reserves the right to terminate Your Account immediately and take any available legal action.

You are solely liable for any transactions or usage on Your Account, whether by You, any End User, or any other user of Your Plan Services, and in no event shall RingCentral be liable for any unauthorised use of Your Account.
