19. OUR CLOUD SERVICES
19.1 Please see clause 8 of Section 1. Automatic enrolment for free trial. When you purchase our Product(s), you may have the option of making use of our Cloud Video Recording Service (the "Cloud Service"). Our Cloud Service automatically sends to us for storage any video footage and/or audio recording captured by the Product(s) installed on your property ("Cloud Recording(s)"), and allows you to later access your Cloud Recording(s) from your computer(s) or compatible device(s) for a limited period of time after such Cloud Recording(s) was created. If you turn off the Cloud Service, then we do not record any Cloud Recordings. Please note that if you elect to delete any Cloud Recording(s) from the Cloud Service, it may take us up to 24 hours to actually remove those Cloud Recordings.
19.2 You may make use of our Cloud Service in one of the following ways:
19.2.1 When you first set up your Product(s) on our Website or App, you will automatically be enrolled in a free trial of the Cloud Service, which entitles you to access the Cloud Service without payment for a limited period of thirty (30) days from the moment that you activate such trial period by pairing your Product to your personal Wi-Fi network.
19.2.2 At the end of the trial period, we may automatically charge you for the Cloud Service on the first day following the end of your trial, on a monthly or annual basis depending on your election when you first set up your Product(s). By submitting your payment details in conjunction with the trial, you agree to this charge. To avoid this charge, you must cancel the Cloud Service by either contacting us before the end of your trial period or unsubscribing from the Cloud Service via our App or Website. If you do not enter into a paid subscription for the Cloud Service, we may (but aren’t obligated to) delete any or all of your Cloud Recordings stored on the Cloud Service.
19. 3 Paid subscriptions where you are not entitled to a free trial period. You acknowledge that you are entitled to one free trial for each Product you buy which offers Cloud Recording. Where you have cancelled your subscription to the Cloud Service for a Product and later sign-up to them again (“Additional Subscription”), you will not be entitled to a further free trial.
Where you wish to sign up for an Additional Subscription you will need to contact us (contact details provided at clause 1.1). Where we agree to enter into an Additional Subscription we will send to you a confirmatory email to the email address you have provided. This email will provide you with details of your new online account through which you will be able to view your recordings.
19.4 Warranty as to Cloud Service. We warrant that the Cloud Service will be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality, in addition to any implied consumer guarantees which apply at law.
20. CLOUD RECORDINGS
20.1 Cloud Recordings. We do not claim ownership of your intellectual property rights in Cloud Recordings. You own your Cloud Recordings. However, by purchasing or using the Cloud Service, you give us the right, without any compensation or obligation to you, to access and use your Cloud Recordings for the limited purposes of providing services to you, protecting you, improving our Products, the Software, and the Cloud Service, and developing new products and services.
20.2 You also acknowledge and agree that we may access, use, preserve and/or disclose your Cloud Recordings to law enforcement authorities, government officials, and/or third parties, if legally required to do so or if we have a good faith belief that such access, use, preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to: (a) comply with legal process or request; (b) enforce these terms, including investigation of any potential violation thereof; (c) detect, prevent or otherwise address security, fraud or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property or safety of us, our users, a third party, or the public as required or permitted by law.
20.3 Limit on recording. You acknowledge your obligation to install any Product which takes visual and/or audio recordings at such an angle so that it does not take any such recordings beyond the boundary of your property (“Condition”). This means that no recordings from anyone else’s property, nor from any land not owned by you (including public pavements or roads) may be taken. Please see our Privacy Notice
21.1 Payment dates. Where we charge you for the Cloud Service, we will take payment from your nominated account on the first day that they commence. Where you are entitled to a free trial period, you will be charged on the first day following the free trial period unless you have cancelled your subscription. Where you have elected to pay monthly payments, the payments will be taken from your nominated account on the same date in each subsequent month (unless that day is a weekend or bank holiday, in which case the money will be taken from your account on the next possible day).
21.2 Refunds. Where you cancel your monthly subscription to the Cloud Service you will not be entitled to a refund of any subscription fees paid, and any fees not paid by you will become immediately payable. We will not issue a refund for any unused portion of any monthly subscription.
You acknowledge that where you have an annual subscription you will have been given a discounted rate equivalent to 10 months of monthly subscription fees. If you cancel your annual subscription at any time within the first 10 months of your subscription period, you will be charged the monthly subscription fee (i.e., what you would have paid for under the monthly subscription plan) for each month of your annual subscription period prior to your cancellation, and you may be eligible for a refund for the remainder of your annual subscription fee. After the first 10 months, we will not issue a refund for any unused portion of any annual subscription.
21.3 How we will refund you. Any refund will be by the method you used for payment.

24. OUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE SUFFERED BY YOU
24.1 We are responsible to you for reasonably foreseeable loss and damage caused by our breach of the consumer guarantees set out in the New Zealand Consumer Law and any other warranties set out in these Terms, in addition to any repair, replacement or refund.
24.2 Where you have bought a Ring™ Product from a third party. Where you have bought a Ring™ Product from a third party and you are not able to download or use the Software and/or any Services, our liability to you shall be limited to the fees, if any, which you have paid to us for the relevant Software and/or Services (including the Cloud Service) and for which you have not received the benefit. You should contact the third-party retailer who sold you the Ring™ Product if you are not able to use any Software or Services which are available free of charge to you through the Website and/or App and which are necessary for the functioning of the Ring™ Product.
Please note however that where we cancel your licence to use the Software or limit your access to the Services because you have breached the Terms, we reserve the right not refund any fees you have paid for the Cloud Service.
24.3 Where you have bought a Product from us. Where you have bought a Product from us and you are unable to download or use the Software and/or any Services which are necessary for the functioning of the Product, the Services are not delivered with due care and skill or the Software and/or any Services are not fit for a purpose you made known to us, you may treat the Product as faulty in accordance with clauses 13.2, 13.3 and 13.4 of Section 2. Clause 13 of Section 2 will apply equally to faults in the Software and/or any Services and you should follow the process contained in clause 13 of Section 2 for the return of the Product and we will comply with the provisions of that clause in relation to any refund. In addition to the possible refund for the Product, you will also be entitled to a refund of any fees for the relevant Services (including Cloud Service) which you have paid and for which you have not received the benefit and any reasonably foreseeable consequential or associated loss or damage resulting from our failure to comply with the consumer guarantees that was not outside our control.
Please note however that where we cancel or limit your access to the Services because you have breached the Terms, you shall not be entitled to return your Product to us as faulty. In addition, we reserve the right not to refund any fees you have paid for the Cloud Service.
24.4 When we are liable for damage caused by our Software and/or Services to you. If defective Software we have supplied damages a device or digital content belonging to you and this is caused by our failure to use reasonable care and skill we will either repair the damage or pay you compensation. However, we will not be liable for damage which you could have avoided by following our advice to apply an update offered to you free of charge or for damage which was caused by you failing to correctly follow installation instructions or to have in place the minimum system requirements advised. This right shall be in addition to any right contained in clauses 8.2 and 8.3, and any limitation in those clauses shall not apply in relation to any such damage.
24.5 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation. To the extent permitted by law, and except as otherwise provided in these Terms and the New Zealand Consumer Law, we exclude all conditions, warranties, representations or other terms which may apply to your use of our Software and/or Services, whether express or implied.
24.6 We are not liable for your use of the Software or Services other than in accordance with these Terms and applicable law. You acknowledge and agree that we shall not be responsible for any claims, losses and/or damages incurred by you that are not caused by our conduct or our Software or Services, or relate to something independent of us after the Software or Services leave our control (for example, as a result of you combining our Software with materials/software not supplied by us or our representatives or modifying our Software without our approval), or where you use our Software or Services other than in accordance with our instructions or the provisions of these Terms.
24.7 We only supply the Software and Services for domestic and private use. If you use the Software or Services for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose then, to the extent permitted by law, we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
24.8 We are not liable for any recordings made by any Products on your property. You acknowledge and agree that you shall defend, indemnify and hold us harmless against all claims, actions, proceedings, losses, damages, expenses and costs (including without limitation court costs and reasonable legal fees) arising out of or in connection with any claim brought against us by any third party as a result of any recordings made by any Products installed on your property or as a result of you breaching the Condition (see clause 4.2).
