This AUP governs your use of the Dialpad website, Dialpad Talk, UberConference, Dialpad Sell and Dialpad Support (each a “Service” and collectively, the “Services”).

In order to provide the best pricing, support and Services available to all of our users, we retain the right to impose limits on your usage of the Services or to terminate the Services if we reasonably believe that your usage, including, but not limited to, the total number of calls you make, SMS messages you send, or minutes you use is not consistent with normal, fair, and reasonable use of such Services. Wherever reasonably possible, we will give you written notice before taking any such action, and allow a reasonable period to allow you to modify your use.
Illegal or Inappropriate Behavior. You shall not use the Services for any illegal, fraudulent, improper, or abusive purpose or in any way that interferes with Dialpad’s ability to provide high quality Services to other customers, prevents or restricts other customers from using the Services, or damages Dialpad’s or other customers’ property. If Dialpad finds that you are using the Services for anything other than the permitted uses in the Agreement or for any of the prohibited uses in the Agreement, Dialpad may at its sole discretion terminate your Service and charge you any applicable fees for the Services used plus damages caused by your improper use.

In addition, some of Dialpad’s Services are offered on an “unlimited” basis. All unlimited Services may only be used for normal business use and exclude international calling to countries other than Canada, which is available for an additional fee. Unlimited Services 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 Dialpad 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 simultaneously); bulk call-in lines (e.g., customer support or sales call centers not provided by Dialpad, “hotlines”, 900 numbers, sports-line numbers, etc.); and auto-dialing or “predictive” dialing (i.e., non-manual dialing or using a software program or other means to continuously dial or place outbound calls). In addition, unusually high usage of the Services may impair Dialpad’s ability to provide high quality Services to others and/or indicate unauthorized use of the Services, in which case, Dialpad may suspend or terminate your Account or, upon prior notice. Dialpad reserves the right to add to, modify or amend this Acceptable Use Policy at any time for any reason at its sole discretion.

CONTENT OWNERSHIP AND END USER LICENSE/RESTRICTIONS
The materials displayed or performed or available on or through the Services, including, but not limited to, text, graphics, data, articles, photos, images, illustrations, and user submissions (all of the foregoing, the “Content”) are protected by copyright and/or other intellectual property laws.

You acknowledge and agree that any unauthorized use of the IP Rights is a violation of this Agreement, as well as a violation of applicable intellectual property laws.
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 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, Dialpad may immediately terminate your right to use the Services without liability of any kind and you shall indemnify and hold Dialpad harmless in the event of a breach of this restriction.
At Dialpas sole option and without further notice, Dialpad 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 Dialpad 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, email, or other unsolicited marketing messages using the Services, you agree to pay Dialpad its actual damages if those damages can be reasonably calculated. If actual damages cannot be reasonably calculated, you agree to pay Dialpad 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.
You represent and warrant that you are not located in a country subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or that has been designated by the U.S. Government as a “terrorist supporting” country, and that you are not listed on any U.S. Government list of prohibited or restricted parties.
Certain Dialpad 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. Dialpad 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 Dialpad from and against any damages or liabilities of any kind related to your recording of any telephone conversations using the Services.
Note that the laws applicable to call transcription differ by state, province and country. For some jurisdictions, transcribing recorded calls, recording calls, or even transcribing real-time speech over a call or video is prohibited or requires informed consent by some or all parties to the conversation. We recommend you review the relevant laws of your locality or consult with an attorney regarding your specific circumstances. Dialpad expressly disclaims all liability with respect to your transcription of telephone conversations. You hereby agree to fully, finally, and forever release, discharge, hold harmless, and fully indemnify Dialpad from and against any damages or liabilities of any kind related to your transcription of any telephone conversations using the Services.
VOICE-TO-TEXT AND TEXT-TO-VOICE LIMITATIONS
Certain Dialpad Services may provide a function that allows voicemails and voice notes to be converted to text and vice versa. You understand and agree that Dialpad’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. Dialpad 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 Dialpad from and against any damages or liabilities of any kind related to your use of VTT or TTV features when using the Services.
SUPPORT AND FEEDBACK
Dialpad may provide customer and technical support to you via telephone, chat, forums, FAQ and email for the Services. The types of support provided by Dialpad is dependent on the products that you purchased and the number of seats using Dialpad in your organization. The types of support provided by Dialpad is determined entirely by Dialpad in its sole discretion and may change from time to time. Dialpad does not make any representations or guarantees that Dialpad will be able to fully resolve any issues reported by you. Except as provided in this section, Dialpad 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, Dialpad may send you surveys, comment cards, customer satisfaction forms, or other requests to provide feedback. You hereby grant Dialpad, 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 Dialpad.
NUMBER PORTING AND AVAILABILITY
Dialpad 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 Dialpad’s control. Accordingly, you agree that Dialpad 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.
Dialpad works with third party carrier(s) who, on Dialpad’s behalf, port telephone numbers in accordance with applicable regulatory rules and industry guidelines. Dialpad’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 Dialpad account, follow the procedures on your account settings page for transferring a number to your Dialpad account. For porting numbers out of your Dialpad account, follow the procedures of your new service provider. You understand that porting your number out of your Account does not automatically terminate your Dialpad account.
Dialpad cannot guarantee requested telephone numbers will be available, that your existing provider will port your number, or that circumstances beyond Dialpad’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. Dialpad shall not be liable for reimbursement for press releases, business cards, and/or stationery under any conditions.
You understand and agree that Dialpad may from time to time need to change the telephone number or assigned to you (due to an area code split or for any other reason). Dialpad 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 number.
DIALPAD 911 SERVICE
FOR USERS OF DIALPAD FREE, ACCESS TO EMERGENCY SERVICES (911) IS NOT AVAILABLE. BY USING DIALPAD FREE SERVICES, INCLUDING PORTING YOUR EXISTING NUMBERS TO DIALPAD FREE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU SHOULD MAKE ALTERNATIVE ARRANGEMENTS TO REACH 911 AND THAT YOU WILL INFORM ALL BUSINESS COLLEAGUES, HOUSEHOLD RESIDENTS, GUESTS, AND OTHER PERSONS WHO MAY BE PRESENT AT YOUR PHYSICAL LOCATION THAT 911 IS UNAVAILABLE THROUGH DIALPAD FREE.
FOR SUBSCRIBERS OF DIALPAD PAID SERVICES, YOU UNDERSTAND THAT 911 SERVICE IS ONLY PROVIDED THROUGH THE DIALPAD DESKTOP APP OR THE DIALPAD SOFTPHONE DUE TO THE NATURE OF DIALPAD 911 SERVICE AND SERVICE PORTABILITY DISCUSSED BELOW, WE RECOMMEND YOU MAKE ALTERNATIVE ARRANGEMENTS TO PLACE 911 CALLS, SUCH AS USING A TRADITIONAL WIRELINE OR CELLULAR TELEPHONE, AND YOU SHOULD NOT RELY ON DIALPAD TO CALL 911.
YOU UNDERSTAND THAT THE DIALPAD MOBILE APPLICATION USES YOUR DEVICE’S DIALER AND CELLULAR TELEPHONE SERVICE TO MAKE 911 CALLS. IF YOUR DEVICE DOES NOT HAVE CELLULAR TELEPHONE SERVICE, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO CALL 911 FROM THE DIALPAD MOBILE APPLICATION. DIALPAD DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL LIABILITY RELATING TO YOUR (OR ANY OF YOUR USERS OR THIRD PARTIES) INABILITY TO MAKE 911 CALLS OR ACCESS EMERGENCY SERVICES.
Dialpad VoIP 911 Service (“Dialpad 911 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, but are not limited to, Internet Connection Failure, Number Flexibility & Porting, and Loss of Electrical Power (as described below):
- Internet connection failure. If the connection to the wired broadband internet over which your Dialpad Service is provided is interrupted, you would not have access to Dialpad Service during that interruption and therefore will not have access to Dialpad 911 Service during that interruption.
- 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 telephone number. Traditional 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 the Dialpad Service permits you to obtain a telephone number that does not correspond to your geographic location (for example, you may obtain a Dialpad telephone number with a California area code even if you do not have a California address) and allows you to use Dialpad Service anywhere you have wired broadband Internet, the Dialpad 911 Service functions differently than traditional 911 service in certain respects: Because your address does not necessarily correspond with your telephone number, you must provide Dialpad with the street address(es) where you will be using Dialpad Service (“Registered Location(s)”) when you sign up for Dialpad service. If you relocate any equipment (e.g., PC with softphone, IP phone, or ATA with traditional phone) that you use to access the Dialpad Service, you must update your Registered Location(s). If you do not update your Registered Location(s), any 911 calls you make using the Dialpad 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 the Dialpad Service will, where possible, automatically transmit your Registered Location to the PSAP, you must update your Registered Location to ensure that the Dialpad 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 Dialpad 911 Service, the Service 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.
- 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 Dialpad 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 Dialpad Service for each phone line you use from Dialpad (e.g., if you purchase Dialpad with three lines, you must provide a Registered Location for each of the three lines). Dialpad will obtain your Registered Location as part of the service initiation process and will not provide Dialpad Service until you have provided your initial Registered Location. However, you must update your Registered Location when you use your Dialpad 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 Dialpad 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 Dialpad 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 Dialpad Service from a new location. If you provide Registered Location information that is, or that Dialpad suspects to be, false, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, Dialpad 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. Dialpad 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 contacting Dialpad customer support at email@example.com. For purposes of 911 dialing, you may only register one Registered Location for each Dialpad line.
Notify All Users of 911 Limitations. You must inform all business colleagues, household residents, guests, and other persons who may be present at the physical location where you utilize the Dialpad Service that 911 may not be available or may be in some way limited in comparison to traditional 911 service. For subscribers to whom E911 service is provided as part of their Dialpad Services, stickers may be sent with warning that “E911 Service May Be Limited or Not Available” for use with any equipment purchased from Dialpad. It is your responsibility to place these stickers on the equipment you use to access Dialpad Service. If you have not received a sticker, or you require additional 911 stickers, please contact customer support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Disclaimer of 911 Liability. Dialpad 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. Dialpad 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 Dialpad Service, how they answer these calls, or how they handle or respond to these calls. Dialpad 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 Dialpad’s 911 service. Dialpad expressly disclaims all liability with respect to your use of the E911 service. You hereby agree to fully, finally, and forever release, discharge, hold harmless, and fully indemnify Dialpad from and against any damages or liabilities of any kind related to your use of the E911 services.
OPERATOR ASSISTED CALLING, 311, 511, AND OTHER X11 CALLING
The 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.
FRAUDULENT ACTIVITY OR ERRONEOUS CHARGES
In the event of suspected fraudulent activity or erroneous charges on your Account, you agree to contact Dialpad as soon as possible. In many cases, Dialpad can mitigate or correct fraudulent activity or erroneous charges without bank or credit card company intervention. If you suspect fraudulent activity or erroneous charges on your Dialpad account, please contact Dialpad customer support at email@example.com. When you contact customer support, please have the following information available: (a) your name, contact information, the Dialpad account telephone number in question, and security verification information; (b) the credit card account number associated with the account; and (c) the total amount in question charged to the account. If you do not contact Dialpad within thirty (30) days after the suspected fraudulent activity or erroneous charges appear on your Account, you waive your rights to object to or challenge such activity or charges. Furthermore, if you request that your bank or credit card company perform a chargeback without first contacting Dialpad, and Dialpad subsequently determines that the charges at issue are not erroneous, Dialpad reserves the right to terminate your account immediately and take any available legal action. Notwithstanding the above, you are solely liable for any transactions or activities by you or anyone else that occur on your Account, and in no event shall Dialpad be liable for any unauthorized use of your Account.
In the event that you breach any of the terms of this AUP, Dialpad retains the right to suspend or terminate Customer’s use of the Dialpad Services (including UberConference) upon written notice to you. No credits will be available for terminations or suspensions resulting from Customer’s breach of the AUP.

CHANGES TO SERVICES
Dialpad, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to add, remove, or modify features or functions, or to provide fixes, updates and upgrades, to the Services. You acknowledge and agree that Dialpad has no obligation to make available to You any subsequent versions of the Services. In addition, you and Dialpad acknowledge that no third party has any obligation whatsoever to furnish maintenance or support services with respect to the Services and that Dialpad is solely responsible for the provision of maintenance and support as provided in this Agreement and to the extent such maintenance and support is required under applicable law. Your continued use of the Services following any modification of the Services constitutes your agreement with any such changes or updates.
In the event that you wish to stop using the Services, you may do so at any time, by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Dialpad may terminate (or suspend access to) your use of the Services or your account, for any reason in our sole discretion, including, but not limited to, your breach of these Terms.
BILLING AND PAYMENT
Some of the Dialpad Services are currently free, but we reserve the right to charge for certain or all Services in the future. We will notify you before any Services you are currently using begin carrying a fee, and if you wish to continue using such Services, you must pay all applicable fees for such Services.
If you choose to sign up for any Services that carry a fee (the “Paid Services”) you will be charged the then current fees for such Paid Services. Dialpad’s current fees for the Paid Services can be found at https://dialpad.com/pricing and https://www.uberconference.com/pricing. Unless otherwise agreed, all fees paid to Dialpad are non-refundable.
Unless you are paying for the service pursuant to an invoicing arrangement with Dialpad or one of our authorized resellers (“Reseller”), as described in the following paragraphs, any applicable initiation charges, usage, monthly recurring charges, support charges, and other fees are billed in full in advance. Termination, international calling, equipment return fees and transfer charges, if any, are billed in arrears. Upon termination of your Account for any reason, all unused calling credits and international calling credits shall expire in their entirety on the termination date. No refund, transfer or proration shall be made of any unused calling credits, additional credits, promotional credits, or international calling credits or of any remaining periods/months on any account.
When you subscribe to Services, you will provide us with a payment method, such as a valid credit card (including proper billing information), and, if applicable, authorize us to collect from your payment method. Any authorization will remain valid until thirty (30) days after you terminate our authority to charge your payment method. Upon termination, we will charge you any fees and any other outstanding charges and disconnect your Service. You agree to advise and notify us of any changes to your payment method, such as credit card account number or expiration date changes. If the credit card or other payment method on your Account is declined or fails for any reason, Dialpad will use reasonable efforts to contact you and advise you of the failed billing attempts. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Dialpad reserves the right to disconnect your Service and terminate your account if your credit card on file is declined or fails for any reason, and Dialpad reserves the right to continue to attempt charging your credit card for any outstanding Service charges and additional fees and pursue any other legal remedies available to Dialpad.
Time is of the essence for payment. Therefore, you agree to pay us interest at the lesser rate of (a) 18% per annum or (b) the highest rate allowed by law for any amounts unpaid as of the due date. Acceptance of late or partial payments (even if marked “Paid in Full”) shall not waive any of Dialpad’s rights to collect the full amount due. We may assess an additional fee of the lesser of (a) fifty dollars ($50) or (b) the highest amount allowed by law for any credit card chargeback or check returned for nonpayment.
Billing cycle end dates may change from time to time. When a billing cycle covers less than or more than a full month, we may make reasonable adjustments and prorate the charges to your account.
You must dispute any charges for the Services in writing to Dialpad within thirty (30) days of the date of the charge by Dialpad. 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. Written statements disputing charges must be sent to email@example.com.
PRODUCT PRICING AND AVAILABILITY
With respect to its advertising, offering, or sale of applications, Services, or any other products (collectively, “Service(s)”), Dialpad attempts to describe its products as accurately as possible. Nevertheless, Dialpad does not warrant that any descriptions, pricing, availability, or other information relating to the advertising, offering, or sale of Services (collectively, “Service Information”) from its website, marketing materials, promotional flyers, advertisements, or other printed or electronic materials (collectively, “Service Materials”) is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. Despite our efforts, it is possible that Service Information may be mispriced, described inaccurately, or that the Services may be unavailable. In the event Dialpad determines that a Service is mispriced, described inaccurately, or unavailable, Dialpad reserves the right to take any action it deems reasonable and necessary to rectify the error, including without limitation, canceling your account or subscription to the Services. You agree to notify Dialpad immediately if you become aware of any pricing or descriptive errors or inconsistencies with any Services you order through the Service Materials and comply with any corrective action taken by Dialpad. You acknowledge and agree that the Services may not be available 100% of the time. Credit allowances for interruption of the Services may only be provided on a case-by-case basis at the sole discretion of Dialpad and shall be your sole remedy for any Service interruptions or other issues with the Services.
TAXES, CHARGES, AND FEES
All fees for Services advertised or otherwise listed on the website are exclusive of any federal, state, local sales, international excise, value-added, and similar taxes or fees and administrative or recovery fees or charges (collectively “Taxes and Fees”). For subscribers of Dialpad paid Services, You agree to pay all Taxes and Fees and/or similar liabilities, however denominated, that may now or hereafter be levied on the Services, which are chargeable to or recoverable from customers by any federal, state, local, or international law or regulation, as well as any administrative and recovery fees and charges levied on the Services by Dialpad, whether or not mandated by law or regulation. Should Dialpad pay or be required to pay such liabilities (including any Taxes and Fees that were due but not charged or previously collected), You agree that Dialpad may invoice you or charge your credit card on file for such payments upon receipt of an invoice and showing of indebtedness to Dialpad.
You are responsible for paying all charges for your Account, including but not limited to toll-free, local, long distance, international, additional feature charges, 411 and operator assisted charges, and directory assistance charges, and for all taxes, surcharges, and fees imposed on you or us as a result of your use of the Service.
From time to time in its sole discretion, Dialpad may offer promotions or discounts. Any promotion or discount codes must be provided to Dialpad upon purchase of the Services. You shall not be entitled to a subsequent credit for such promotions or discounts if you do not request such credit at the time of account creation or change of service. Promotions and/or discounts may not be used cumulatively or be used for Services retroactively. If a promotion and/or discount is offered on a confidential basis, you agree not to disclose the promotion and/or discount and to assume full responsibility for any harm, direct or indirect, caused to Dialpad by the disclosure of the promotion and/or discount.
Dialpad offers unlimited monthly calling for domestic calls (United States and Canada) and text messages from your mobile phone or computer. An unlimited service provides you with a domestic telephone number and is subject to the terms and restrictions of the Acceptable Use Policy along with any other restrictions described herein, as well as any reseller agreements, if applicable. If, for any reason, Dialpad believes that you are using the unlimited service for a prohibited purpose and/or your call usage violates the Acceptable Use Policy, then Dialpad may, in its sole discretion with or without notice, terminate your unlimited service.
Dialpad offers toll-free numbers, for an additional monthly fee, plus additional charges based on the minutes of use for inbound calls. Having a toll-free number requires that you maintain a balance of calling credits. When you are nearing exhaustion of your initial paid allotment of calling credits, we will automatically recharge on your behalf, an incremental package for additional credits, unless you disable this feature otherwise. Post-paid pricing packages and other variable terms may be available through invoiced accounts or resellers. Please refer to any applicable reseller agreements for additional terms of service. If, for any reason, Dialpad believes that you are using the toll-free calling for a prohibited purpose and/or your call usage violates the Acceptable Use Policy, then Dialpad may, in its sole discretion with or without notice, terminate your toll-free calling service.
INTERNATIONAL CALLING AND “LOCAL” INTERNATIONAL TELEPHONE NUMBERS
To make international calls using the Services, you must enable international calling in your settings and pre-purchase at least the minimum package of international calling credits necessary to make such international calls. Insufficient credits may cause your call to be terminated. Packages of international calling credits will decrement based on the rate defined per country and carrier. Our international calling rates are available at https://www.dialpad.com/rates/ . In addition, you may be charged any applicable Taxes and Fees associated with international calls. You are solely responsible for the region and numbers you choose and any associated charges on your account. Dialpad also offers some “local” international numbers for you to make and receive calls and texts. Rates, terms, Taxes and Fees associated with international inbound and outbound calling and texting services may vary based on the country and reseller agreement, if applicable. If, for any reason, Dialpad believes that You are using the Service for a prohibited purpose and/or your call usage violates the Acceptable Use Policy, then Dialpad may, in its sole discretion with or without notice, terminate your service.
VALUE, OWNERSHIP, AND EXPIRATION OF CALLING CREDITS
Toll-free and international calling credits have no monetary value and cannot be exchanged for the cash value or refunded at any time after such credits are purchased by you, including after the closure of your account. Credits may only be redeemed and used by the holder or users of the associated account or “office” to which the Credits have been credited, and may not be sold, transferred, assigned, or used by another user or with another user’s account or office. Any unused credits remain on your account and "roll over" to the next billing period. Additional credits and promotional credits expire according to the terms of their purchase.
The account owner shall be the legal entity (e.g., corporation, partnership, individual) that signs up for the Services with Dialpad. If no legal entity is provided upon sign-up, the account owner shall be the owner of the credit card used to open the account. Subsequent changes to ownership must be supported by appropriate legal documentation. Dialpad shall not adjudicate ownership-related disputes, or any other internal business dispute. If Dialpad is unable to determine the valid owner of the account, Dialpad reserves the right to suspend or terminate the account and Services.

What Personal Information does Dialpad collect?
Information You Provide to Us
When you create a Dialpad account, you provide us with Personal Information such as your name, email address, phone number, password, and payment information.
You can always opt not to disclose information to us, but keep in mind some information may be needed to register with us or to take advantage of some of our features within the Services.
Information We Collect As You Use Our Services
When you interact with our Services, we automatically receive and record information that we then use to provide the Services.
Device and Session Information: We collect information about your browser or device, which may include your IP address, device IDs, or other unique identifiers, cookie information, the type of browser and/or device you’re using to access our Services, and the page or feature you requested. We use this data to customize your experience with our Services, based on your usage patterns. We also use it to improve the Services – for example, this data can tell us how often users use a particular feature of the Services, and we can use that knowledge to make decisions about future development focus. You may be able to change the preferences on your browser or device to prevent or limit your device’s acceptance of cookies, but this may prevent you from taking advantage of some of our features.
Telephony Information: We maintain customer call records such as time, duration, the number of the called party. Like all telephony services, we also maintain and temporary copies of call audio for up to 48 hours for quality assurance.
Call Audio: Some of Dialpad’s Services and its Voice Intelligence (Vi) features include saving audio and transcription from calls, both to enable these features and to train and improve the models that these features are based on, such as speech recognition and understanding. Dialpad may use pseudonymized segments of such transcriptions and recordings to improve or validate its features, or securely share it with contractors to do so on Dialpad’s behalf. Any training data saved by Dialpad is used only for improving Dialpad’s language models, and is processed primarily by automated systems. A small fraction of training data may be manually reviewed. You may opt out of manual review at any time by contacting email@example.com. You can control what data is stored by choosing which Dialpad features you use from the settings menu in the relevant Service.
How does Dialpad use Personal Information?
Dialpad uses Personal Information to deliver the Services, and also to improve the Services and to communicate with you about the Services, including marketing communications.
The main ways that we use the Personal Information that you provide to us or that we collect when you use the Service are to:
- deliver the Services, including placing and receiving voice and video calls, and providing recordings, transcriptions, and analytics of calls; determining your geographic location for efficient call routing, and organizing your contacts,
- manage your account and billing, to enable secure login and single sign on, and allow third party integrations;
- prevent, detect, and investigate potentially prohibited or illegal activities, including fraud and violations of our Terms of Service and Acceptable Use Policy; and
- improve Dialpad’s products and train the audio and language models that the Services are based on.
We may communicate with you if you’ve provided us the means to do so. For example, if you’ve given us your email address, we may send you promotional email offers on behalf of other businesses, or email you about your use of the Services. Also, we may receive a confirmation when you open an email from us. This confirmation helps us make our communications with you more applicable and improve our services. If you do not want to receive communications from us, you can always opt out by unsubscribing through the link at the bottom of our emails.
We do not use Personal Information to make automated decisions.
What Personal Information does Dialpad share with third parties and why?
Information that’s no longer personally identifiable
We may anonymize your Personal Information so that you are not individually identifiable, and provide that information to certain of our partners to help us improve our Service, such as sending anonymized samples of audio or text to a third party to improve speech-to-text transcription and reading comprehension. We may also provide aggregate usage information to our partners to understand how often and in what ways people use our Services. However, we never disclose aggregate usage information to a partner in a manner that would identify you personally, as an individual.
Cookies Policy, Third Party Analytics, and Tracking
Dialpad and third party service providers of tracking technologies gather non-personal information about how users enter, navigate, and leave the website and Services, the frequency and length of visits to the Services or third party websites, application or device usage data, and your product or service preference indicated by the number of times and the length of time you view a product. Dialpad gathers this data using cookies (both first party cookies, such as the Google Analytics cookie, and third-party cookies, such as the DoubleClick cookie), web beacons, tags, and other similar techniques that deliver small files to your computer and which allow these networks to provide anonymized, aggregated auditing, research and reporting for us and for advertisers.
Dialpad uses certain third-party services that help us understand traffic on our website in various ways:
Google Analytics and Google Adwords help Dialpad understand who is visiting Dialpad’s websites and to show relevant ads on other websites to people who have visited Dialpad’s websites. You can control what ads you see through the Google Ad Settings Manager. More information on how Google uses information collected when you use Google’s partner sites is available at Google’s Partner Technologies page.
Wistia powers the videos on our site. Wistia tracks how you interact with these videos: how much of a video you watch, at what points in a video you pause or rewind, etc. In some videos, we pause the video and request that you provide your email address or name. You are under no obligation to provide this information, but we reserve the right to limit certain videos to identified users. Wistia aggregates the data collected through the videos here, including names and email addresses, and provides it to us. Wistia does not sell or provide the data it collects to third parties.
You may be able to opt out of tracking conducted by third parties through our Services by adjusting the Do Not Track settings on your browser; but we don’t control whether or how these third parties comply with Do Not Track requests. Our Services do not support Do Not Track requests at this time, which means that we collect information about your online activity both while you are using the Services and after you leave our Services.
Affiliated Businesses and Service Integrations
We will share your Personal Information with affiliated businesses only if you or your Dialpad Services administrator set up an integration, and we will only share your information to the extent that it is related to the transaction or service, such as the ability for you to automatically transmit Third Party Account Information to your Services profile or to automatically transmit information in your Services profile to your third party account. If you choose to take part in any transaction or service relating to an affiliated website or business, please review their policies.
Agents, Subprocessors, and Contractors
We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide the Services to you. For example, we use a payment processing service to receive and process your credit card transactions for us. Our agents do not have any right to use the Personal Information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us and may not use such information for marketing purposes. We may authorize access to your data for those employees, contractors, partners, and agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop and improve products and services. When we transfer data of customers in the European Union to agents and third parties, we remain liable for ensuring that it is kept secure. Dialpad’s list of sub-processors can be viewed within our Help Center.
User Profiles and Contacts
Certain user profile information, including your profile photo and status, may be displayed to other users within the Services. You are responsible for entering and updating that content. Additionally, if you sign into the Services through a third party service, your list of contacts from that site or service may be automatically imported to the Services.
If we (or our assets) are acquired, or if we go out of business, enter bankruptcy, or go through some other change of control, Personal Information could be one of the assets transferred to or acquired by a third party.
Protection of Dialpad and Others
We reserve the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any Personal Information that we believe is necessary to comply with the law; to respond to lawful requests by public authorities, a court order or subpoena; to enforce or apply our Terms of Service and other agreements; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Dialpad, our employees, our users, or others, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
How is Personal Information about me secured?
Your account is protected by a password, and your Personal Information is encrypted in transit and in storage using industry standard encryption. If you access your account via a third party site or service, you may have additional or different sign-on protections via that third party site or service. You must prevent unauthorized access to your account and Personal Information by selecting and protecting your password and/or other sign-on mechanism appropriately and limiting access to your computer or device and browser by signing off after you have finished accessing your account.
We endeavor to protect the privacy of your account and other Personal Information we hold in our records, but unfortunately, we cannot guarantee complete security.
How can I access, manage, and delete my data?
Through your account settings, you may access, and, in some cases, edit, or delete the following information you’ve provided to us:
- name and password
- email address
- phone number(s)
- time zone
- place of employment
- recorded/transcribed messages and calls
- call history including incoming/outgoing number and duration
- user profile information, including images you have uploaded
- billing information
- other third-party account information you have linked to the site
The information you can view, update, and delete may change as the Services change. You also have the right to access, correct, amend, or delete information that we hold via a Data Subject Access Request. When you update information, we may maintain a copy of the unrevised information in our records.
You may request deletion of your Dialpad Talk, Dialpad Support and/or Dialpad Sell account by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. You may delete your UberConference account by selecting the “Delete My Account” link at the bottom of the account page (www.uberconference.com/account). After deletion of your account, some information may remain in our records for a period of time that is consistent with the purpose it was collected for. We may use any anonymized and aggregated data derived from your Personal Information after you update or delete it, but not in a manner that would identify you personally.
Following the cancellation of your Services, we will delete and/or anonymize information related to your account so that no personal information is retained by Dialpad or its contractors, unless otherwise required by law.

Copyright Dispute Policy
Effective date: Aug 2, 2019
In accordance with the DMCA, we’ve adopted this Copyright Dispute Policy. We reserve the right to (1) block access to or remove material that we believe in good faith to be copyrighted material that has been illegally copied and distributed by any of our advertisers, affiliates, content providers, members or users and/or (2) remove and discontinue service to repeat offenders. Your use of Dialpad’s Services is at all times subject to the Terms of Service, which incorporates this Copyright Dispute Policy. Any terms we use in this Policy without defining them have the definitions given to them in the Terms of Service.
Procedure for Reporting Copyright Infringements. If you believe that material or content residing on or accessible through the Services infringes your copyright (or the copyright of someone whom you are authorized to act on behalf of), please send a notice of copyright infringement containing the following information to Dialpad’s Designated Agent (contact details are listed below):
- A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright that has been allegedly infringed;
- Identification of works or materials being infringed;
- Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing including information regarding the location of the infringing materials that the copyright owner seeks to have removed, with sufficient detail so that Dialpad is capable of finding and verifying its existence;
- Contact information about the notifier including address, telephone number, and email address;
- A statement that the notifier has a good faith belief that the identified infringing material is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
- A statement made under penalty of perjury that the information provided is accurate and the notifying party is authorized to make the complaint on behalf of the copyright owner.
Procedure Following Dialpad’s Receipt of Bona Fide Infringement Notification. Upon receipt of a proper notice of copyright infringement, we reserve the right to:
- Remove or disable access to the infringing material;
- Notify the content provider who is accused of infringement that we have removed or disabled access to the applicable material; and
- Terminate such content provider's access to the Services if a repeat offender or as otherwise deemed appropriate in our sole discretion.
Procedure to Supply a Counter-Notice to the Designated Agent. If the content provider believes that the material that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing (or otherwise has a bona fide right to post and use such material from the copyright owner) the content provider may send our Designated Agent a counter-notice containing the following information:
- A physical or electronic signature of the content provider;
- Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or disabled;
- A statement that the content provider has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material; and
- Content provider's name, address, telephone number, and email address; and
- A statement that such person or entity consents to the jurisdiction of the Federal Court for the judicial district in which the content provider’s address is located (or if the content provider's address is located outside the United States, for any judicial district in which Dialpad is located), and acknowledgement that such person or entity will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.
If a counter-notice is received by our Designated Agent, Dialpad may, in its discretion, send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that Dialpad may replace the removed material or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider accused of committing infringement, the removed material may be replaced or access to it restored in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at Dialpad's discretion.
