vii. How the Monitoring Service Works

The Monitoring Service consists of (a) continuously (i.e., 24 hours a day, seven days a week) monitoring the Alarm Product for purposes of receipt by the Monitoring Station of any listed signal codes from the Alarm Product, and (b) the notification of you, and/or your emergency contacts and/or emergency responders of the receipt of any such listed signal codes by the Monitoring Station, as provided for herein. Notification to you and your emergency contacts may be made by one or more means, to include: calls to the telephone numbers, emails to the email addresses and text messages to the wireless devices you provide Ring for yourself and your emergency contacts.

So that the Monitoring Service can be performed, you must provide Ring with all the information it and/or the Monitoring Station requests for you and your emergency contacts, and notify Ring immediately with any change to any of that information. You agree that any person that you have designated as an emergency contact is authorized to act on your behalf, and has the authority to verify or cancel a listed signal code received by the Monitoring Station prior to, or after, the notification of emergency responders. You understand and agree that Ring and the Monitoring Station will rely, and are entitled to rely, solely on the contact and other information you provide for yourself and your emergency contacts.

Upon receipt of a listed signal code from the Alarm Product, the Monitoring Station will make commercially reasonable efforts to notify you, your emergency contacts and/or emergency responders within a commercially reasonable period of time in accordance with your instructions, the policies and procedures of the Monitoring Station, and any applicable municipal, local or state/provincial law, code or ordinance. In the case of notification to you, if emergency responders have not already been notified by the Monitoring Station, and the response from you indicates notification to emergency responders is appropriate or required, the Monitoring Station will then make commercially reasonable efforts to notify emergency responders. In the case of notification to your emergency contacts, (a) if there is no response from such first contact, and the Monitoring Station has been provided a second contact by you, it will then make commercially reasonable efforts to notify such second contact, and (b) if emergency responders have not already been notified by the Monitoring Station, and the response from your first or second emergency contact indicates notification to emergency responders is appropriate or required, the Monitoring Station will then make commercially reasonable efforts to notify emergency responders (hereinafter the “Notification Protocol”). In the case of notification to your emergency contacts, the Notification Protocol shall be satisfied upon receipt by the Monitoring Station of verbal confirmation of notification from an emergency contact, or by leaving a message with such emergency contact on a telephone answering service, or any mechanical, electrical, electronic or other technology permitting the recording of voice or data communications. In the case of notification to emergency responders, the Notification Protocol shall be satisfied upon receipt by the Monitoring Station of verbal confirmation of notification to any person authorized to respond to such notification.

Ring and the Monitoring Station may be subject to applicable laws and industry standards designed to reduce false alarms, and these laws and standards may result in practices and procedures that delay either the notification of emergency responders, or other verification procedures in response to listed signal codes. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, codes and ordinances, you agree that the Monitoring Station may, in its reasonable discretion, and notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, attempt to contact you and/or your emergency contacts to verify that a signal is not a false alarm before dispatching emergency responders. IF THE MONITORING STATION HAS REASON TO BELIEVE THAT NO EMERGENCY CONDITION EXISTS, IT MAY ELECT, IN ITS REASONABLE DISCRETION AND IF NOT OTHERWISE PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW, CODES AND ORDINANCES, NOT TO DISPATCH EMERGENCY RESPONDERS AND/OR FOLLOW THE NOTIFICATION PROTOCOL.

If you experience a life/safety, property risk, fire, flood, burglary, robbery, medical issue or other emergency event, do not wait to be contacted by the Monitoring Station. Instead, if you are able to do so safely, you should immediately contact the police, fire department, 911 or appropriate emergency response service.

viii. Changes to the Monitoring Service

Ring and the Monitoring Station may from time to time, in response to applicable law or otherwise, revise, replace, change, modify, discontinue or rescind certain policies or procedures relating to the Monitoring Service and the response to listed signal codes. Ring shall endeavor to provide you with notification pursuant to Section III hereof of any such revisions, replacements, changes, modifications, discontinuance or rescission within a commercially reasonable period of time either before or after they are effective.

ix. False Alarm

In the event a fine, penalty or fee is assessed against you or Ring or the Monitoring Station by any local government as a result of any false, excessive or other alarm condition or non-compliance with any local ordinance or standard intended to reduce false alarms not caused by the negligence or other wrongdoing of Ring or the Monitoring Station, you agree to be solely responsible for payment, and shall reimburse Ring and the Monitoring Station for any such fines, penalty or fees. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you hereby expressly authorize Ring to charge the payment card associated with your Monitoring Service account the full amount of any such fine, penalty or fee. Please be warned that if your Alarm Product generates more than three (3) false alarm signals within a twenty-four (24) hour period, Ring and/or the Monitoring Station may, if not prohibited by applicable municipal, local or state/provincial law, code or ordinance, place your Alarm Product back in Initial Test Status, as defined above in Section vi., above. However, before placing the Alarm Product back in the Initial Test Status, Ring and/or the Monitoring Station will provide you with at least twenty-four (24) hours advance notification pursuant to Section III hereof.

*x. Changes to the System Elements *

PLEASE BE WARNED THAT IF YOU SWITCH OR CHANGE ANY OF YOUR SYSTEM ELEMENTS (AS DEFINED IN SECTION XI, BELOW), THIS MAY LEAVE YOUR ALARM PRODUCT UNABLE TO TRANSMIT SIGNALS TO THE MONITORING STATION AND, THEREFORE, THE MONITORING SERVICE WILL NOT WORK. It is your sole duty to assure that your System Elements are at all times compatible with your Alarm Product and Monitoring Service, and properly functioning.

*xi. Use of Communications *

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you hereby consent to the Monitoring Station intercepting, recording, retrieving, reviewing, copying, disclosing and using, for purposes of providing the Monitoring Service, the contents of all telephone, video, wire, oral, electronic and other forms of transmission or communication to which you or your emergency contacts are parties.

xii. Force Majeure
The obligation to provide the Monitoring Services shall immediately terminate, without prior notice, in the event of any of the following: (i) the telephone lines, network or equipment, other communications equipment, software, or physical facilities of the Monitoring Station are destroyed, damaged, or inoperable for any reason whatsoever; or (ii) any war whether declared or undeclared, fire, flood, extreme weather, accident, explosion, act of terrorism, governmental orders, regulations, restrictions or priorities, strike, lockout or other labor troubles, or any other cause beyond the absolute control of the Monitoring Station for the duration of the interrupted service. Ring shall provide you with notice pursuant to Section III hereof of such termination as soon as commercially reasonable following any such Force Majeure event.

X. MONITORING SERVICE AFTER FREE TRIAL PERIOD.

YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT IF YOU DO NOT ENTER INTO A PAID SUBSCRIPTION FOR THE MONITORING SERVICE BEFORE THE END OF YOUR FREE TRIAL PERIOD, THEN YOUR MONITORING SERVICE WILL STOP AT THE END OF YOUR FREE TRIAL PERIOD.

For the Back-Up Wireless Data Service to work, your Registered Address must be located within the coverage area of the applicable carrier in North America for the Back-Up Wireless Data Service, and it is your sole responsibility to assure that your Registered Address is so located within the applicable service coverage area. Your Alarm Product may contain a SIM card. You agree not to use the SIM card except in your Alarm Product. Any violation of the restrictions on the use of the SIM card may, in Ring’s sole discretion, result in the termination of the Alarm Services or Monitoring Service in accordance with Section XIII hereof. In addition, if Ring detects unauthorized or excessive use of the Alarm Services or Monitoring Service or SIM card, you agree to reimburse Ring for all the data usage associated with the unauthorized or excessive use. You hereby expressly authorize Ring to charge the payment card associated with your account for all related unauthorized or excessive data charges. You understand and agree that neither Ring nor the Monitoring Station are responsible for the operation or non-operation of any of your System Elements or Back-Up Wireless Data Service. You acknowledge and agree that the System Elements and Back-Up Wireless Data Service are not error-free and may be interrupted, delayed, refused, or otherwise limited for a variety of reasons, including insufficient coverage, power outages, termination of service and access, environmental conditions, interference, non-payment of applicable fees and charges, unavailability of radio frequency channels, system capacity, upgrades, repairs or relocations, and priority access by emergency responders in the event of a disaster or emergency (“Service Problem(s)”). Service Problems may result in an inability of your Alarm Product to send listed signal codes to the Monitoring Station and, in such event, the Monitoring Service will be unavailable for the duration of the Service Problem. Further, Service Problems may result in the Alarm Service being unreliable or unavailable for the duration of the Service Problem. Neither Ring, the Monitoring Station, nor any wireless data carrier is responsible or liable for any such Service Problems.

SPECIFICALLY, REGARDING THE BACK-UP WIRELESS DATA SERVICE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT BACK-UP WIRELESS DATA SERVICE IS MADE AVAILABLE ONLY WITHIN THE OPERATING RANGE OF THE NETWORKS.
