IF YOU SUBSCRIBE TO ONE OF THE OTHER RINGCENTRAL SOFTWARE APPLICATIONS OR SERVICES, YOU MUST MAKE ALTERNATIVE ARRANGEMENTS TO PLACE 911 CALLS, SUCH AS USING A TRADITIONAL WIRELINE OR CELLULAR TELEPHONE, AND YOU SHOULD NOT RELY ON RINGCENTRAL OFFICE@HAND FROM AT&T TO CALL 911.

6. Use Policies
You shall not use the Services for any illegal, fraudulent, improper, or abusive purpose or in any way that interferes with RingCentral’s ability to provide high quality Services to other customers, prevents or restricts other customers from using the Services, or damages any RingCentral’s or other customers’ property. If RingCentral finds that You are using the Services for anything other than the permitted uses in this Agreement or for any of the prohibited uses in this Agreement, RingCentral may at its sole discretion terminate Your Service, and AT&T may charge You any applicable fees for the Services used plus damages caused by Your improper use.
Prohibited uses include, but are not limited to:
• Behavior that is illegal, obscene, threatening, harassing, defamatory, libelous, deceptive, fraudulent, malicious, infringing, tortious, or invasive of another’s privacy.
• Sending unsolicited messages or advertisements, including email, voicemail, SMS, or faxes (commercial or otherwise) (“spamming”), or otherwise sending bulk and/or junk email, voice mail, SMS, or faxes.
• Harvesting or otherwise collecting information about others, including email addresses, without their consent.
• Negligently, recklessly, knowingly, or intentionally transmitting any material that contains viruses, time bombs, trojan horses, worms, malware, spyware, or any other programs that may be harmful or dangerous.
• Creating a false Caller ID identity (“ID spoofing”) or forged email/SMS address or header, or otherwise attempting to mislead others as to the identity of the sender or the origin of any communication made using the Services.
• Transmitting any material that may infringe, misappropriate, or otherwise violate the foreign or domestic intellectual property rights or other rights of third parties.
• Violating any U.S. or foreign law regarding the transmission of technical data or software exported through the Services.
• Utilizing the Services in excess of what, in RingCentral’s sole discretion, would be expected of normal business use, including without limitation allowing more than one user to use a single VoIP line or using a single VoIP line in excess of what would be expected of a single user.
• Using the Services in any way that interferes with other customers’ and third parties’ use and enjoyment of the Services or use the Services in any manner which disrupts, prevents or restricts any other customer from using the Services.
• Using or employing methods and/or devices that are designed or likely to take advantage of, bypass, exploit, or otherwise avoid this Use Policy.
You further understand and agree that:
• You shall be solely liable for any transmissions sent through the Services under Your Account, including the content of any transmission sent through the Services under Your Account.
• You will abide by all applicable RingCentral and AT&T policies, procedures, and agreements related to the Services.
• You shall not attempt to gain unauthorized access to the Services, other accounts, computer systems or networks connected to the Services, through password mining or any other means.
• Your use of the Services is subject to all applicable local, state, national, and international laws and regulations (including without limitation those governing account collection, export control, consumer protection, unfair competition, anti-discrimination, securities laws, and false advertising).
In addition, some of RingCentral’s plans and other Services are offered on an “unlimited” basis. All unlimited plans:
• May only be used for normal business use.
• Are provided only for dialog between two individuals at one time per line.
• Exclude international calling, which is available for an additional fee.
• Are issued on a “one (1) user per line basis”, meaning that only one registered user may be assigned to use the Services for any one line.
Unlimited plans also may not be used for any of the following prohibited uses (which are in addition to the other prohibited uses applicable to all Services):
• Trunking or forwarding Your RingCentral number to (an)other phone number(s) capable of handling multiple simultaneous calls, or to a private branch exchange (PBX) or a key system.
• Spamming or blasting (e.g., sending one hundred (100) or more bulk and/or junk voicemail or faxes simultaneously).
• Bulk call-in lines (e.g., customer support or sales call centers, “hotlines”, 900 numbers, sports-line numbers, etc.).
• Auto-dialing or “predictive” dialing (i.e., non-manual dialing or using a software program or other means to continuously dial or place out-bound calls).
In addition, unusually high usage of the Services may impair RingCentral’s ability to provide high quality Services to others and/or indicate unauthorized use of the Services, in which case RingCentral may suspend or terminate Your Account and/or suggest that you upgrade your plan to a level that can accommodate the anticipated volume.
RingCentral reserves the right to add to, modify or amend this Use Policy at any time for any reason at its sole discretion.
7. Unsolicited Advertisements
The transmission of unsolicited calls, using the Services for broadcasting, and/or transmitting unsolicited fax advertisements is illegal under federal law, including the Federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 (http://ftp.fcc.gov/cgb/consumerfacts/unwantedfaxes.html), and under a number of similar state laws. Distribution of unsolicited voicemail, broadcast, and fax advertisements through the Services is prohibited. You shall not use the Services to send or transmit any unsolicited communications or advertisements and understand that, if You do, RingCentral may immediately terminate Your right to use the Services without liability of any kind.
At RingCentral’s sole option and without further notice, RingCentral may use technologies and procedures, such as filters, that may terminate such unsolicited advertisements without delivering them. You hereby release and agree to fully, finally, and forever release, hold harmless, and fully indemnify RingCentral from and against any damages or liabilities of any kind related to any voicemail, broadcast, and/or fax spam or solicitations that You may send and/or receive using the Services.
If You transmit or are otherwise connected with any transmission of voice, fax, e-mail, or other unsolicited marketing messages using the Services, You agree to pay RingCentral its actual damages if those damages can be reasonably calculated. If actual damages cannot be reasonably calculated, You agree to pay RingCentral liquidated damages of ten dollars ($10.00) for each unsolicited marketing message transmitted through the Services. You acknowledge that if actual damages cannot be reasonably calculated, these liquidated damages are a reasonable estimation of such damages and are not a penalty.
8. Equipment Return Policy
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 AT&T or AT&T has 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 AT&T to immediately bill your credit card the appropriate equipment return fees, as set forth below.
If You cancel Your RingCentral Service within ninety (90) days from the date of purchase of the hardware, You may (a) keep the hardware and pay the list price minus the actual price paid for the hardware, excluding taxes, or (b) return Your hardware and receive a full refund. No returns are accepted after ninety (90) days from the date of purchase of the hardware. In addition, the following terms and charges apply to hardware returns:
• You agree to pay all shipping and handling charges related to any hardware returns.
• All hardware must be fully functional, include all components, manuals, peripheral devices, and all other accessories that were originally shipped with the hardware.
• Before returning any hardware that has data in its memory, please transfer all files You wish to retain to another file source. Once the 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.
9. Account Ownership
The Account owner shall be the legal entity (e.g., corporation, partnership, individual) that signs up for the Services with AT&T. Subsequent changes to ownership must be supported by appropriate legal documentation. Neither AT&T nor RingCentral will adjudicate ownership-related disputes, or any other internal business dispute. If AT&T is unable to determine the valid owner of the Account, AT&T reserves the right to suspend or terminate the Account and Services.
10. Number Porting and Availability
RingCentral will use reasonable efforts to facilitate number transfers or port requests for You, provided that You comply with the necessary and specific procedures for porting between service providers.
You acknowledge and understand that number porting depends on the cooperation of third parties outside of RingCentral’s control. 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 unauthorized porting of any telephone number by a third party.
RingCentral works with third party carrier(s) who, on RingCentral’s behalf, port telephone numbers in accordance with applicable Regulatory Rules and Industry Guidelines. RingCentral’s third-party carrier(s) require very specific and detailed information and requirements when completing a port request. Please be informed that You will be required to provide such detailed and specific information to complete a port request. For porting numbers into Your RingCentral Office@Hand from AT&T Account, follow the procedures on Your Account settings page for transferring a number to Your RingCentral Office@Hand from AT&T Account. For porting numbers out of Your RingCentral Office@Hand from AT&T Account, follow the procedures of Your new service provider. You understand that porting Your number out of Your Account does not automatically terminate Your RingCentral Office@Hand from AT&T Account.
Number porting is defined and regulated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Visit http://www.fcc.gov/cgb/NumberPortability to learn more about number porting.
RingCentral cannot guarantee requested telephone numbers will be available, that Your existing provider will port Your number, or that circumstances beyond RingCentral’s control will not prevent or delay a successful port of Your number for the Services. You should not order any printed material, such as business cards or stationery, showing a telephone number, or issue any press releases or otherwise publicize any telephone number until that telephone number becomes active on Your Account. RingCentral shall not be liable for reimbursement for press releases, business cards, and/or stationery under any conditions.
You understand and agree that RingCentral may from time to time need to change the telephone or facsimile number assigned to You (due to an area code split or for any other reason). RingCentral shall not be liable for any damages (including consequential, special damages or other damages) to You in the event that it needs to assign You a new telephone or facsimile number.
11. Storage of User Information
RingCentral is not obligated to store Your communications logs, voicemails, faxes, e-mails, or other messages and does so only as a convenience to You. You agree that RingCentral has no responsibility or liability whatsoever for the deletion or failure to store any call log information, voicemails, faxes, e-mails, messages, and/or other communications maintained or transmitted by the Services. You acknowledge and agree that RingCentral may establish limits as to the size of communications that RingCentral transmits or stores and the duration for which RingCentral stores any communications.
12. Recording Conversations
Certain RingCentral Services provide a function that allows You to record individual telephone conversations. The laws regarding the notice, notification, and consent requirements for recording conversations vary from state to state. In some states, You are required to obtain consent from all parties to a record a conversation. You are solely responsible for complying with all federal, state, and local laws in any relevant jurisdiction when using this feature. RingCentral expressly disclaims all liability with respect to your recording of telephone conversations. You hereby agree to fully, finally, and forever release, discharge, hold harmless, and fully indemnify RingCentral from and against any damages or liabilities of any kind related to Your recording of any telephone conversations using the Services.
13. Voice-to-Text and Text-to-Voice Limitations
Certain RingCentral Services may provide a function that allows voicemails to be converted to text and vice versa. You understand and agree that RingCentral’s voice-to-text (“VTT”) and text-to-voice (“TTV”) features may not accurately transcribe voicemails or articulate text messages, respectively. You are solely responsible for checking the original message and verifying the accuracy of the message when using any and all VTT or TTV features. RingCentral expressly disclaims all liability with respect to the conversion of voicemails to text or vice versa. You hereby agree to fully, finally, and forever release, discharge, hold harmless, and fully indemnify RingCentral from and against any damages or liabilities of any kind related to Your use of VTT or TTV features when using the Services.
14. Support and Feedback
AT&T provides customer and technical support to You via telephone and e-mail for the Services. AT&T will use reasonable efforts to troubleshoot and resolve issues reported by You but does not make any representations or guarantees that AT&T will be able to fully resolve any such issues. Except as provided in this section, AT&T has no obligation to provide additional customer support, technical support, or to provide solutions (e.g., bug fixes to software) to any issues that may arise in Your particular use of the Services.
From time to time, RingCentral may send You surveys, comment cards, customer satisfaction forms, or other requests to provide feedback. You hereby grant RingCentral, its licensors, and suppliers a perpetual, unlimited, worldwide fully-paid up, royalty free license to use all feedback, answers, ideas, comments, or other information You provide to RingCentral.
15. Service Changes
You understand and agree that RingCentral may make upgrades or changes to the Services which will not materially diminish the functionality of the Services without prior notice to You. In the event that a change to the Services would, in RingCentral’s reasonable discretion and judgment, permanently and materially diminish or impair the functionality of the Services (a “Change”), RingCentral shall provide You with written notice of such Change at least sixty (60) days prior to the date the Change will take effect. If the Change is unacceptable to You, You may terminate the Services without penalty by calling AT&T Advanced Mobility Solutions customer care at 1-866-563-4703. Any use of the Services after the effective date of Change will be deemed Your acceptance of the Change.
16. Additional Terms for RingCentral Office@Hand from AT&T Service with VoIP
RingCentral plans include one or more Voice over Internet Protocol (“VoIP”) lines and options to add one or more VoIP lines to Your Services. In either case, Services for the VoIP line(s) will be referred to as “VoIP Service”, for which the following additional terms shall apply:
Grant of Rights
RingCentral grants You a non-exclusive, non-transferable, revocable license, and right to use each VoIP line exclusively with one user under Your Account, subject to all the other terms of this Agreement. Accordingly, if You want to allow multiple users to use the VoIP Service, You will need to purchase at least one VoIP line for each user.
To use the VoIP Service, You may need to purchase phones, headsets, or other equipment (collectively, “Equipment”). All Equipment shipments are F.O.B. RingCentral’s shipping distributor facility. RingCentral’s liability for delivery shall cease, and title to such Equipment (if applicable) and all risk of loss or damage shall pass to You upon delivery to the shipping carrier.
All equipment obtained from RingCentral in connection with VoIP Service is subject to the Equipment Return Policy above.
911 SERVICE FOR RINGCENTRAL OFFICE@HAND FROM AT&T SERVICE
YOU UNDERSTAND THAT 911 SERVICE IS ONLY PROVIDED BY RINGCENTRAL OFFICE@HAND FROM AT&T IP DESK PHONES AND SOFTPHONES ON PCS, AND THE OTHER RINGCENTRAL OFFICE@HAND FROM AT&T SOFTWARE APPLICATIONS AND SERVICES DO NOT PROVIDE 911 SERVICE.
911 service for RINGCENTRAL OFFICE@HAND FROM AT&T SERVICE operates differently than traditional 911 service. We are required by the FCC to advise You of the circumstances under which 911 may not be available or may be in some way limited by comparison to traditional 911 service. Such circumstances include
(1) Internet Connection Failure. If the connection to the wired broadband Internet over which Your RINGCENTRAL OFFICE@HAND FROM AT&T SERVICE is provided is interrupted, You will not have access to RINGCENTRAL OFFICE@HAND FROM AT&T SERVICE during that interruption and therefore will not have access to 911 service during that interruption.
(2) Number Flexibility & Service Portability. Traditional 911 service automatically sends Your 911 call to the appropriate local emergency responder, or Public Safety Answering Point (“PSAP”), based on Your wireline telephone number. Enhanced 911 service (also known as E911) automatically sends Your 911 call to the appropriate PSAP along with Your registered address and telephone number. Because RINGCENTRAL OFFICE@HAND FROM AT&T SERVICE permits You to obtain a telephone number that does not correspond to Your geographic location (for example, You may obtain a RINGCENTRAL OFFICE@HAND FROM AT&T SERVICE phone number with a California area code even if You do not have a California address) and allows You to use RINGCENTRAL OFFICE@HAND FROM AT&T SERVICE anywhere You have wired broadband Internet, 911 service for RINGCENTRAL OFFICE@HAND FROM AT&T SERVICE functions differently than traditional 911 and E911 service in certain respects.
Because Your address does not necessarily correspond with Your telephone number, You must provide RingCentral with the street address(es) where You will be using RINGCENTRAL OFFICE@HAND FROM AT&T SERVICE (“Registered Location(s)”) when You sign up for service.
If You relocate any equipment (PC with softphone, IP phone, or ATA with traditional phone) that You use to access the RINGCENTRAL OFFICE@HAND FROM AT&T SERVICE, You must update Your Registered Location(s). If You do not update Your Registered Location(s), any 911 calls You make using RINGCENTRAL OFFICE@HAND FROM AT&T SERVICE will be routed based on Your previously provided Registered Location and therefore may not be routed to the appropriate PSAP for Your new location.
In addition, because RINGCENTRAL OFFICE@HAND FROM AT&T SERVICE will, where possible, automatically transmit Your Registered Location to the PSAP, You must update Your Registered Location to ensure that RINGCENTRAL OFFICE@HAND FROM AT&T SERVICE transmits accurate location information to the PSAP.
Once You notify us of a change in Your Registered Location, there may be a delay in making the new Registered Location available to properly route 911 calls and advise PSAPs of Your new Registered Location.
In some parts of the country where direct routing to PSAPs is not available for 911 service for RINGCENTRAL OFFICE@HAND FROM AT&T , RingCentral will route Your call to the National Emergency Call Center where trained agents will ask for the name, location, and telephone number of the person calling 911 and will contact the appropriate PSAP to send help. The call center will not automatically receive Your address and telephone number. In these situations, public safety response times may be delayed. As a result, there may be an additional delay before emergency services arrive.
(3) Loss of Electrical Power.Unless You have a backup system to power Your wired broadband Internet connection and any equipment (PC with softphone, IP phone, ATA with traditional phone) that You use to access Your RINGCENTRAL OFFICE@HAND FROM AT&T SERVICE, You will not have phone service or 911 service during any power outage.
Registration of Physical Locations Required. As discussed above, You must register the Registered Location where You will be using service for each Premium user You sign up for from RingCentral (e.g., if You purchase RingCentral Office@Hand from AT&T for three Premium users, You must provide a Registered Location for each of the three users). RingCentral will obtain Your Registered Location as part of the service initiation process and will not provide Service until you have provided Your initial Registered Location. However, You must update Your Registered Location when You use Your Service from a new location. Regardless of what address You register, in some circumstances, such as unavailability of direct routing to PSAPs or the use of portable devices to access the VoIP Service, emergency calls will be routed to the National Emergency Call Center.
You agree to provide true, accurate, current, and complete Registered Location information to RingCentral as part of the service initiation process and to update as soon as possible Your Registered Location with true, accurate, current, and complete information whenever You use Your Service from a new location. If You provide Registered Location information that is, or that RingCentral suspects to be, false, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, RingCentral has the right to suspend or terminate the Services and refuse any and all current or future use of all Services, or any portion thereof. RingCentral will not, however, disable Your ability to make a 911 call during any service suspension.
You may update Your Registered Location by logging on to Your Account settings page or calling customer support at AT&T Advanced Mobility Solutions customer care at 1-866-563-4703. For purposes of 911 Dialing, You may only register one Registered Location for each Premium user.
Notify All Users of 911 Limitations. . You should inform all business colleagues, household residents, guests, and other persons who may be present at the physical location where You utilize the Service that 911 may not be available or may be in some way limited in comparison to traditional 911 service. RingCentral will provide these subscribers stickers warning that “E911 Service May Be Limited or Not Available” (or a similar message) for use with any VoIP equipment by mailing stickers to subscribers upon Service initiation. It is Your responsibility to place these stickers on the equipment You use to access VoIP Service. If You have not received a sticker, or You require additional 911 stickers, please contact AT&T customer support at AT&T Advanced Mobility Solutions customer care at 1-866-563-4703.
Disclaimer of 911 Liability. RingCentral disclaims all responsibility for the conduct of PSAPs, the National Emergency Call Center, and all other third parties involved in the provision of emergency response services. RingCentral does not have any control over PSAPs, the National Emergency Call Center, or other third parties and is therefore not responsible for whether they answer 911 calls made using the VoIP service, how they answer these calls, or how they handle or respond to these calls. RingCentral relies on third parties to assist it in the provision of 911 service and disclaims any and all liability for acts or omissions by third parties in the provision of 911 service for RingCentral Office@Hand from AT&T.
Operator Assisted Calling, 311, 511, and other X11 Calling
The VoIP Service does not support 0+ or operator assisted calling (including, without limitation, collect calls, third party billing calls, 900, or calling card calls). The Service may not support 311, 411, 511, and/or other X11 calling (other than 911 and 711 as specified in this Agreement) in one or more service areas.
The VoIP Service allows You to dial 711 to reach Telecommunications Relay Services (“TRS”). TRS enables persons with hearing or speech disabilities to access the public telephone system and communicate with voice telephone users through a communications assistant at a TRS relay center. Because the Service allows You to use a phone number that may not reflect Your geographic location, 711 calls made using the VoIP Service may not be routed to the appropriate TRS center for Your geographic location.
17. Additional Terms for Directory Listing Service
RingCentral may offer a directory assistance listing Service (“Directory Assistance Listing”) associated with Your assigned toll free and/or local number Account, for which the following additional terms shall apply.
By subscribing to Directory Assistance Listing, RingCentral will share certain information about Your Account with third-parties as reasonably necessary to provide phone directory assistance (“Listing Information”).

32. Interpretation of this Agreement
This Agreement, including the documents incorporated herein, constitutes the entire agreement between You and RingCentral with respect to the Applications and Services and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous understandings regarding such subject matter.
If any part of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be construed to reflect the parties’ original intent, and the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect.
The failure of RingCentral to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or any other provision.
Nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed or construed to constitute or create employment, partnership, association, joint venture, agency, or fiduciary relationship between the parties hereto.
You agree and acknowledge that any breach of the provisions regarding intellectual property ownership contained in this Agreement shall cause RingCentral irreparable harm and RingCentral may obtain injunctive relief and seek all other remedies available in law and in equity.
The section titles in this Agreement are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect.
This electronic document and any other electronic documents, policies, and guidelines incorporated herein will be: (1) deemed for all purposes to be a “writing” or “in writing,” and to comply with all statutory, contractual, and other legal requirements for a writing; (2) legally enforceable as a signed writing as against the parties subject to the electronic documents; and (3) deemed an “original” when printed from electronic records established and maintained in the ordinary course of business. Electronic documents introduced as evidence in any judicial, arbitration, mediation, or administrative proceeding will, if established and maintained in the ordinary course of business, be admissible to the same extent as business records in written form that are similarly established and maintained.

33. Dispute Resolution and Optional Arbitration
In the event of any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement between You and RingCentral (“Dispute”), You and RingCentral shall first use reasonable best efforts to settle the dispute, claim, question, or disagreement. To this end, You and an authorized member of RingCentral’s legal department (or other representative of RingCentral designated by the legal department) shall consult and negotiate with each other in good faith and, recognizing their mutual interests, attempt to reach a just and equitable solution satisfactory to both parties. Neither You nor RingCentral shall file or pursue any Disputes in any court, administrative, arbitral, or other adjudicative body prior to engaging in such consultations and negotiations.
You agree that any Disputes shall be adjudicated in the state and federal courts of the State of California, U.S.A. Venue for any Disputes shall be the Superior Court of California, County of San Mateo for state court cases, and the United States District Court of the Northern District of California for federal court cases. You agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts with respect to any Disputes and agree not to bring any Disputes in any other court or adjudicative body. You hereby consent to venue and personal jurisdiction in such courts with respect to such Disputes and irrevocably waive any right that You may have to assert that such forum is not convenient or that any such court lacks jurisdiction.
Notwithstanding the adjudication requirement above, for any Disputes involving ten thousand dollars ($10,000) or less, either party may choose to resolve such 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 provider mutually agreed upon by the parties, and any judgment rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. The arbitrator’s decision shall be final and legally binding.
In the event of any litigation (including arbitration) between You and RingCentral, the non-prevailing party shall reimburse the prevailing party for all reasonable and documented attorneys’ fees, costs, and expenses relating to the Dispute.
34. Choice of Law
This Agreement and Your use of the Applications and Services shall be governed by and construed under the laws of the State of California and the United States without regard to its conflict of law rules. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to this Agreement or Your sign up or use of the Applications or Services.
