The Client is entitled to use the Service by subscribing to (i) a non-binding offer of a duration or prepayment over twelve (12) months, or (ii) an offer with a term of twelve (12), twenty-four (24) or thirty-six (36) months, renewable by tacit agreement for periods of twelve (12) months. Subscription fees are available on the Order Form or on the web page www.Ringover.com/subscription.
The Service will be activated and integrally billed upon reception of the Client’s order by RINGOVER GROUP, except in the case of phone numbers’ incoming portability.
When a Client makes an incoming portability request, they must send to RINGOVER GROUP within 20 (twenty) days of their purchase order all information and documents requested upon signup required for portability, i.e: the most recent bill from the operator(s) of the phone number(s) to be ported, the operator identification statement (RIO), proof of residence as well as the complete portability mandate. Upon reception of these aforementioned documents in full, and on the condition of compliance with the necessary timeframe, RINGOVER GROUP will carry out the portability procedure. In case of failure to transmit the aforementioned documents within the period of 20 (twenty) days, RINGOVER GROUP may unilaterally terminate the contract. The Client will be thus be obliged to pay an inclusive penalty equal to 3 (three) times the amount billed monthly according to their purchase order. The Service will be billed and activated the day of incoming portability for the numbers. In the case where incoming portability for numbers would take place on different dates, billing and the start of contractual obligations would begin the day of incoming portability for the first number.
The User can send and receive faxes on the condition that they opt for a fax number upon subscription.
Upon Subscription, the Subscriber has the possibility, depending on eligibility, to opt for a License including unlimited calls or a usage-based License. For a Subscription with a License for unlimited calls, the ensemble of Users associated with the Subscriber Account by means of a license purchased by the latter will be able to benefit from unlimited calls and faxes to the destinations found through the url https://www.ringover.com/en/rates or the Purchase Order page’s “Call rates,” hereafter referred to as “Zone 1” or “Included.”
Following recent developments in the regulations and policies of international telecom operators, the telecom operators of certain European countries (European Economic Area and Switzerland) add charges to calls, depending on the country of origin.
Consequently, to have unlimited calls to destinations in the European Economic Area included in the plan, the User must make calls with a number from one of the member countries of the European Economic Area. If the User calls a destination in the European Economic Area from another type of number, they will be billed at the rate indicated by the following url: https://www.ringover.com/en/pricing
Similarly, to have unlimited calls to Switzerland included in the plan, the User must call from a Swiss phone number. If the User calls Switzerland from another type of number, the call will be billed at the rate indicated by the following url: https://www.ringover.com/en/pricing
The plan with unlimited calls is intended for use as a traditional business phone system, in the context of interpersonal conversation between two physical persons. Telecommunications professionals (phone operators, call centers, teleboutiques, telemarketing companies) are not eligible for the unlimited call plan.
Use of the unlimited call plan must remain reasonable.
For each User, over the course of an undetermined period, the rate of use of the Service is proportional to the time during which the User is in communication with the correspondents they have called via the Service. Thus, it is on the basis of the average rate of Service use for certain Users over a given period of time that average rate of Service use is determined.
Use of a plan with unlimited calls is considered to be reasonable as long as the average rate of Service use observed among all Users associated with the Subscriber Account is less than five times the average rate of use of the Service as calculated on the base of Ringover Clients benefiting from an unlimited call plan during the last six months. In case of inappropriate use or abuse, RINGOVER GROUP reserves the right to cancel the unlimited call plan (conforming to the provisions of article 18.2 of these Terms) and automatically migrate the ensemble of Users to a usage-based plan without the possibility of returning to an unlimited call plan, and with no indemnity to the Subscriber.
For Subscribers with the SIP option, any use of a plan with unlimited calls employing automated call mechanisms (switches, PABX, diallers, etc.) is strictly forbidden and will result in full termination of the unlimited call plan.
The User Account of each User can be used only by the User, from the web browser of their personal computer or telephone. Sharing and mutual use of the User Account is not authorised. In particular, use of the User Account as a means of collection and/or termination is not permitted, and it is notably prohibited to use the Service to receive or make calls with a telephone switch, switchboard, an automated calling machine or telephony software. The User Account is limited to a single call by the User at a time.
With the paid option, a User can benefit from additional call channels.
To be able to make or receive calls not included in this unlimited plan, the Subscriber must buy prepaid credits, which are usable by all of the Users. These credits are valid for the duration of the Subscription, and are not reimbursable, exchangeable or transferable to another User Account.
In eligible countries, the User may have the advantage of a mobile Ringover Number reserved exclusively for interpersonal use. In particular, if at any time the number of text messages received minus the number of text messages sent is more than 100, or if the number of text messages sent over the last 30 days exceeds 10,000, or if the volume of mobile calls received over the last 30 days exceeds 10,000 minutes, RINGOVER GROUP reserves the right to suspend access to the mobile number without warning. It is not possible to send SMS+ messages, premium text messages or text messages to overseas destinations.
Depending on the chosen plan, the Subscriber may activate or deactivate the automatic recording option.
Regulations related to the recording of phone conversations as well as the length of time they may be stored varies according to the concerned country/geographic zone; it is thus the responsibility of Subscribers and Users, when considering using this option, to ensure its legality with regard to applicable norms, in the understanding that in certain countries Users are required to inform correspondents that their call is being recorded and that they may at any time object to the recording.
Use of this recording option occurs under the sole responsibility of Subscribers and Users of the Service, which entails compliance with local laws.
Subscribers and Users of the Service commit, in case of claims related to recorded phone calls, not to invoke the responsibility of RINGOVER GROUP, and guarantee RINGOVER GROUP against any sought amount and/or conviction which could be directed against it in this regard.
RINGOVER GROUP on its end claims no responsibility whatsoever in any case of improper use of the phone call recording option by Subscribers and/or Users.
If the call recording option is activated, recorded conversations will be archived for a period of six (6) months, with it emphasised that RINGOVER GROUP can in no case be held liable with regard to these recordings, their content or archival.
RINGOVER GROUP guarantees the confidentiality of archived files and agrees not to disclose them to third parties, except in the case of express request by a legitimate authority, such as with a court decision.
In case of termination of the call recording option and/or Service, RINGOVER GROUP will automatically delete all of the User's archived files. It is therefore the responsibility of the User and Subscriber to ensure that all files are downloaded in advance.
The Subscriber and User Accounts can be canceled from one month to the next as goes monthly billing or with three (3) months prior notice in the case of subscription for a period equal to or greater than twelve (12) months.
In case of surpassed limits of the plan, calls will be billed by the second, according to our current rates (for example: for United Kingdom landlines: three cents w/o VAT (£0.03) per minute).
The Subscriber can test the Service’s Smart plan for 7 days, in accordance with the present Terms and within the following limits: 3 Users maximum, limited to 1 Ringover Number and 1 hour of total call time to Included countries per User. To take advantage of this offer, upon Sign-up the Subscriber must provide bank details and authorise RINGOVER GROUP to automatically debit from their account at the end of the 7-day test period the sum due for executing the Service based on the number of Licenses and Ringover Numbers activated during the test period, in accordance with the present Terms. The Subscriber may cancel their test account at any time free of charge from the URL https://dashboard.ringover.com/. Barring cancellation, the Subscriber accepts signing up for the Smart plan with no engagement, under the conditions of the present Terms. To activate their test account the Subscriber must prove their identity. Otherwise, the test account will be automatically closed.
The Subscriber can only take advantage of one test account.
RINGOVER GROUP may have the possibility of providing written transcripts for phone conversations and voicemails.

It must be emphasised that in certain countries/regions such transcription is prohibited or conditional on the consent of the other party.
The use of this feature occurs under the sole responsibility of Subscribers and Users of the Service, which entails compliance with local laws.
Subscribers and Users of the Service commit, in case of claims related to the transcription of phone calls or voicemails, not to invoke the responsibility of RINGOVER GROUP, and guarantee RINGOVER GROUP against any sought amount and/or conviction which could be directed against it in this regard.
RINGOVER GROUP on its end claims no responsibility whatsoever in any case of improper use of the phone call and voicemail transcription option by Subscribers and/or Users.
The purpose of this service is not to transcribe phone calls or voicemails exactly, but to allow Users to have an overall idea of the content of a message or conversation. It remains the responsibility of the User to verify the accuracy of the information provided.
RINGOVER GROUP will put forth its best efforts to assure the Client’s satisfaction, but does not guarantee the exact accuracy of the transcript. RINGOVER GROUP cannot be held accountable for errors in transcription, nor for any eventual consequences.

Applicable rates are those indicated at the time of Subscription and correspond to those listed on the order form signed by the Subscriber as well as on the site www.Ringover.com’s web page https://www.ringover.com/pricing.
The Subscription rate is based on the number of Licenses and Ringover numbers requested by the Client.
The addition of each new License and/or new Ringover number under contract will involve extra fees, which will be calculated according to the rates indicated on the purchase order or the site www.ringover.com on the page www.ringover.com/en/pricing. It is expressly stated that the said rates will be applied for the entire period of the Client’s engagement, even in the case of removal of the License and/or User(s) and/or Ringover number(s) added before the end of the contract, and even if the Ringover number was not transferred to another User.
In case of calls not included in the unlimited plan outlined in Article 4, the Service will be billed by the second from the first second, except for calls to premium numbers.
RINGOVER GROUP reserves the right to modify its rates at any time. Any lowering in RINGOVER GROUP’s rates may take place in no particular timeframe. In the case of increased rates, these will be communicated to the Client at least one (1) month before going into effect, through the provided email address.
Continued use of the Service or non-termination of the Service after a period of one (1) month will signify the Client’s acceptance of the new rates.

Payment for the Service is only possible by credit card or bank debit.

The sums collected by RINGOVER GROUP are irrevocably acquired and not subject to reimbursement.
All payments are due, even in the case of suspension of Service by RINGOVER GROUP, following an unpaid amount by the Client.
RINGOVER GROUP keeps at the Client’s disposal all elements concerning billing.
Client billing is based on data systematically recorded by RINGOVER GROUP’s computer media, which is kept for 12 months. This data is proof of use of the Service by the Client.
In case of dispute with respect to the amounts invoiced by RINGOVER GROUP for use of the Service, the Client must provide notification by registered letter with acknowledgment of receipt within thirty (30) days of the date of issue of the invoice, indicating the invoice number of the disputed amount.

In case of cancellation of number portability, payable compensation will be equal to the full amount paid by the Client upon Subscription to the Ringover Service.
If the Subscriber wishes to port the number back to their original operator, they must inform RINGOVER GROUP prior to the effective date of the number’s transfer to RINGOVER GROUP’s network.
The Subscriber’s request to enact a number’s portability will be considered upon RINGOVER GROUP’s receipt of all documents requested during Subscription to the Ringover Service (complete and signed portability mandate and supporting documentation). Any incomplete file will prevent the completion said request. Portability of a Subscriber’s number depends in part on the cooperation of the operator of the Subscriber’s line. As such, RINGOVER GROUP cannot be held liable in case of non-compliance with portability deadlines.
Incoming portability is effected from Monday to Friday from 9am until 12pm. Any incoming portability request by the Subscriber outside of these times, if accepted by RINGOVER GROUP, will be billed extra to the Subscriber.
Ringover Numbers may be transferred over by the Subscriber under certain conditions.
Portability for the Ringover number must be requested by the Subscriber’s new operator before termination of the contract by the Subscriber. The demand for portability by the Subscriber’s new operator will result in account termination.
For outgoing portability of the Ringover number to be accepted, the Subscriber must prove to have upon activation of the Ringover number provided a valid local address in the geographic zone of the concerned Ringover number.
Any request for portability after account termination will be denied.
Similarly, any outgoing portability request will be denied if the Subscriber has not paid all previous bills at the date of request.
On the anniversary date of the Subscription, RINGOVER GROUP will charge the amount of the monthly fee to the credit card provided by the Subscriber.
In case of rejection of payment by the bank, RINGOVER GROUP will make a second attempt to procure payment after a period of seventy-two (72) hours, and a third attempt, if necessary, after a period of seventy-two (72) hours.
RINGOVER GROUP will immediately suspend the Service if the third attempt is unsuccessful.
Accounts suspended by RINGOVER GROUP will not be entitled to any reimbursement whatsoever, in the form of Subscription or credits.
The Service will be reestablished upon payment of all outstanding invoices.
It is expressly stated that outstanding invoices remain due, and that RINGOVER GROUP reserves the right to take action in order to recover its debts.
RINGOVER GROUP also reserves the right to immediately suspend the Service if it suspects that the Client is using it in an inappropriate manner or on behalf of third parties, in particular in cases of abnormal traffic or in violation of the present Terms.
RINGOVER GROUP may in particular suspend the Service if the Client fails to provide proof of identity upon request, and also in case of fraud.
No request for compensation will be granted in the event of temporary or permanent deactivation of the Service.
Non-binding offer or 12-month prepaid subscription
The Client may end their contract up to the day before the anniversary date of their Subscription by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Previously purchased credits will not be refunded.
The Client may also at any time cancel the Licenses corresponding to the Ringover User accounts of their choice from their online client space, without being able to claim any reimbursement from RINGOVER GROUP.
Durable plan with commitment
The Subscriber subscribing to a plan with long-term commitment has the right to cancel their commitment by registered letter with acknowledgment of receipt, sent at least three (3) months before the end of the initial or renewal period to the following address: BJT PARTNERS - RINGOVER Termination Service - 50 bis rue Maurice Arnoux, 92120 Montrouge, France.
In case of anticipated cancellation, the Subscriber will owe cancellation fees equalling the average amount of the three most recent invoices (or by default the amount of the last invoice). This amount will be multiplied by the number of months remaining until the end of the Subscriber’s initial commitment period or automatic renewal period.
This will remain so even in the case of cancellation of the Service at the initiative of RINGOVER GROUP due to unpaid invoices.
RINGOVER GROUP reserves the right to suspend the account of any Client and to terminate the contract immediately if the Client is determined not comply with these Terms or uses the Service in a manner that is harmful to RINGOVER GROUP or to third parties.
RINGOVER GROUP may terminate without cause, (i) 12-month non-binding or prepaid subscriptions in compliance with a notice period of three (3) days, and (ii) binding subscriptions in compliance with a notice period of three (3) months. Where applicable, RINGOVER GROUP will reimburse the Client for the Subscription fee already paid in proportion to the remaining period.
In the case of cancellation of the Service at the initiative of RINGOVER GROUP because of unpaid invoices, RINGOVER GROUP may claim indemnities from the Subscriber for anticipated cancellation, as defined above in article 8.1.
RINGOVER GROUP may without warning terminate the account of a Client having subscribed to the Discover plan if that Client has not made or received a call for a period of 3 consecutive months.
In every case, RINGOVER GROUP will inform the Client by email or phone.
The Subscriber shall not claim compensation from Ringover’s team, whatever the cause of either contract termination or the temporary or permanent deactivation of Service.
RINGOVER GROUP has the right to transfer the present contract, notably in case of cessation or transfer of all or part of its activity and/or its assets.
