Your basic account is free. In addition, you can prepay for data storage services (‘Cloud Services’) offered to you by VTech.

VTech undertakes no obligation to update, amend or clarify information disclosed on the Services, including without limitation, financial information.  However, the Site and Services are updated periodically when bug fixes, patches and feature improvements are finalized. This functionality is necessary for the integrity of the Site and/or Services.

If you disagree or are prevented by law from allowing automatic updates, you must stop using the Site and Service immediately and terminate your account.

VTech will also push out updates when bug fixes, patches and feature improvements are finalized. We highly recommend that you enable automatic updating on your mobile device or that you promptly install all updates as they appear.

No specified update or refresh date applied in the services should be taken to indicate that all information on the Services has been modified or updated. Please remember when reviewing information on the Services that such information may not represent the complete information available on a subject.

It is the user's responsibility to ensure that information obtained from the Services has not been rendered inaccurate or incomplete by subsequent events.

14. Availability of the Site and Software

Subject to the terms and conditions of these Terms, VTech will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide access to the Site and Software twenty-four (24) hours a day, seven (7) days a week. You acknowledge and agree that from time to time, the Services may be inaccessible or inoperable for various reasons, including: periodic maintenance procedures or upgrades (‘Scheduled Downtime’); software malfunctions; and causes caused by third parties or otherwise beyond VTech’s control or which are not reasonably foreseeable by VTech, including the interruption or failure of telecommunication or digital transmission links, hostile network attacks, network congestion, third-party failures or other failures (collectively ‘Non-Scheduled Downtime’). VTech will use commercially reasonable efforts to minimize any disruption, inaccessibility and/or inoperability of the Services in connection with a Non-Scheduled Downtime.

In the event VTech discovers or is notified by you of the existence of Non-Scheduled Downtime, VTech will take reasonable actions to determine the source of the problem. If the source of the problem is outside of the control of VTech, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify the party(ies) responsible and cooperate with such party(ies) to resolve the problem as soon as possible. If the source of the problem is within the control of VTech, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to resolve the problem as quickly as is reasonably possible after determining the source of the Non-Scheduled Downtime. However, it is also important to note that the source of any issues with the Services could be related to your own internet connection or the improper, inadequate or unsupported performance of your Device, computer, mobile device or other hardware or firmware installed on your Device.

YOU AGREE THAT VTECH IS NOT LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD-PARTY FOR ANY SUSPENSION, DISRUPTION, OUTAGES, ALTERATION OR DISCONTINUATION OF ANY PART OF THE SERVICES OR SITE FUNCTIONALITY THAT IS CAUSED BY ANYTHING OUT OF THE CONTROL OF VTECH, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, AN INADEQUATE OR UNSTABLE INTERNET CONNECTION FOR THE DEVICE OR THE SERVICES, DEVICE OR HARDWARE MALFUNCTIONS OR INADEQUACIES, OR ANY FAILURES OF ANY THIRD PARTY.

  1. Internet

    Accessing the Site and using certain Services requires Internet Access.  High-speed Internet access is strongly recommended.

    You may access the Site and certain Services through a mobile network, your network or roaming providers’ networks. Standard messaging, data, and other fees may be charged by the provider to access the Site and Services. Your carrier may prohibit or restrict the Site and/or certain Services and certain Services may be incompatible with your carrier or wireless internet device.

  2. Device Issues

    The Service may include Devices that can exist without a connection or those that require the Service to operate fully and completely. Information provided by the Device manufacturer should clearly identify dependency on the Service in the documentation or any license agreements that accompany the Device and on the specifications or packaging. If the end user is not permitted to use the Service pursuant to the documentation, agreements or specifications that accompany the Device, the ability to use certain Devices in connection with the Services may be limited or may be otherwise impacted negatively. VTech is not responsible for providing this information or for any inability to use the Service with a given Device. YOU AGREE THAT YOUR SOLE REMEDY FOR ANY ISSUES WITH, OR ANY INABILITY TO USE, A DEVICE OR FIRMWARE INSTALLED THEREON, IS WITH THE DEVICE SELLER OR MANUFACTURER. VTECH IS NOT RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR FUNDS LOST DUE TO PRODUCT PURCHASES WHERE THE SERVICE IS NOT ACCESSIBLE FOR REASONS RELATED TO THE DEVICE, THE FIRMWARE INSTALLED THEREON, OR THE DOCUMENTATION ACCOMPANYING SUCH DEVICE OR FIRMWARE.

    Some devices have features that need to be enabled. For example, to use a camera as a baby monitor it must detect sound to trigger an action, whether it be recording video or sending notifications. This feature may not be enabled by default and it may be in a disabled state on your Device. You are responsible at all times for configuration of Devices to deploy features and the correct configuration of notifications so they are received correctly. You can refer to the User Manual for your Device for specific instructions on how to enable or disable optional features. VTECH IS NOT RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR DAMAGES RELATING TO DEVICE OR FIRMWARE CONFIGURATION OR THE LACK THEREOF OR FOR NOTIFICATIONS THAT DO NOT SEND CORRECTLY OR REACH THE INTENDED RECIPIENT.

15. Not Intended to Provide Critical Services

VTech is not a critical services provider and the Services are not intended to provide critical services. In other words, VTech cannot guarantee that the Site or Services will remain online or that they will function properly at all times. Furthermore, VTech is not responsible for, and assumes no liability relating to or arising out of, your Devices or any firmware installed thereon.

YOU AGREE THAT VTECH IS NOT LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD-PARTY IN ANY WAY FOR DAMAGES AS A RESULT OF SERVICE OUTAGES, WHETHER OR NOT CAUSED BY VTECH.

YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT ONLY YOU HAVE ACCESS TO YOUR DATA AND VIDEO/AUDIO STREAMS, SO CONTENT IS NOT MONITORED AND WILL NOT RESULT IN EMERGENCY SERVICES BEING DISPATCHED TO YOU.

Notifications are provided through the Service to provide warning of outages, account changes and other events that are worthy of attention. Though we strive to deliver notifications as appropriate, the nature of e-mail, SMS or any other form of communication is inherently only as reliable as the service. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT NOTIFICATIONS MAY NOT ARRIVE FOR REASONS OUTSIDE OF THE CONTROL OF VTECH AND/OR ITS PARTNERS. YOU AGREE THAT VTECH IS NOT LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD-PARTY FOR DAMAGES THAT RESULT BECAUSE THE SERVICE WAS UNABLE TO PROVIDE A NOTIFICATION FOR ANY REASON.

16. Purchase of Products

You agree and represent that you are buying Products for your own use, and not for resale or export. VTech does not accept resale certificates or exempt certificates for any consumer sales. Please refer to the Snom Channel Partner Program at www.snomamericas.com to support partners selling Snom Americas products.

  1. Offer and Acceptance

    Submitting your order constitutes your offer to purchase the selected Product, regulated under these Terms, and obligates you to pay the price of the ordered Product(s) if the order is accepted and confirmed by VTech.  An order proposal may be refused by VTech prior to acceptance and confirmation of the order by VTech at its sole discretion, including but not limited to when the product is not available, or where there are reported or suspected fraudulent activities.  The acceptance (or the refusal) by VTech of the order proposal shall be sent via e-mail at the address you provided at check-out.  Title and risk of loss for the Products purchased on this website passes from VTech to you upon shipment.

  2. Warranties

    Limited Warranties for all Products and services purchased through the Site are set forth at https://www.vtechphones.com/legal/returns-and-warranty. To the fullest extent permissible by applicable law, VTech makes no other express warranties and this warranty supersedes any prior representations and understandings regarding the products, including any warranty arising from course of dealing, course of performance, or usage of trade.

  3. Return Policies 

    Please view our Return Policies for more information.

  4. Availability; Out-of-Stock Product; Backorders. 

    All items are subject to availability and we reserve the right to the fullest extent permissible by applicable law to impose quantity limits on any order, to reject all or part of an order and to discontinue Products or services without notice, even if you have already placed your order.

    If a Product is not available, please check back later. Sometimes we will not know in advance that Product is unavailable, so when you place items in your Shopping Cart you will be asked if you would like to backorder them. If you indicate yes, the item will be sent to you once it becomes available. Note that some items may be back-ordered or unavailable even if the Site indicates that they are in-stock, and adding an item to your cart does not guarantee the availability of that item. We will not charge your payment card until the Product ships to the designated delivery address. If the back-ordered Product is no longer available, we will cancel the item from your order and notify you, usually via e-mail. If you have Products on backorder that you would like to cancel, please contact us through the website associated with your specific product, or through the support number listed in the User Manual associated with your product.

  5. Shipping Information 

    VTech will ship products via standard ground or expedited shipping service. VTech will ship to virtually any address within the United States, excluding Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Alaska and Hawaii orders can only be shipped via expedited service. VTech cannot ship to P.O. Boxes, APO/FPO addresses, or to Guam or Canada. For shipping to Canada, visit www.vtechcanada.com.  Shipping and handling charges will apply depending on the size of your order, the weight of the items ordered, and whether you choose standard ground or expedited service.  Orders are shipped by VTech within 1 to 2 business days from receipt of a completed order. A “completed order” is received on the date that VTech receives all information needed to process your order.

    Any shipping times shown on the Site are estimates only – actual delivery dates may vary.  In most cases, however, total shipping time from receipt of a completed order is 3 to 7 business days for shipment via standard, and 1 to 3 business days for shipment via expedited shipping service.   Orders only containing replacement parts and/or batteries will use an economy shipping method and should arrive within 10 to12 days from receipt of a Completed Order. Customers do have the option to select expedited shipping and receive delivery within 3 to 7 days of a Completed Order.

    When we ship to you or per your directions, you agree to pay the shipping and any handling charges shown on the Site when your order is placed. We reserve the right to increase, decrease and add or eliminate charges from time to time and without prior notice, so you agree to check all charges before placing an order or signing up for a service.

    Shipping and handling charges on all orders shall be calculated at VTech’s discretion. VTech reserves the right to place a hold on processing any order until such time as a VTech customer service representative: 1) contacts the customer to confirm that the customer has completed the order as intended, and 2) notifies the customer of the appropriate shipping and handling charges. Please note that shipping and handling charges may be greater than the amount initially quoted on VTech’s website. Once VTech notifies the customer of the revised shipping and handling charges, the customer shall have the right to accept the charges or cancel the order. VTech shall not consider the order completed until the customer accepts the revised shipping and handling charges.

    VTech Communications, Inc. will not be subject to any damages, including direct, indirect, or consequential damages, as a result of its failure to ship within the foregoing time frames.

 

17. Pricing

All prices and fees are shown in U.S. dollars (except where otherwise noted). To the fullest extent permissible by applicable law, all prices are subject to change without notice and you agree that taxes may be adjusted from the amount shown on the billing screens. Several factors may cause this, such as variances between processor programs and changes in tax rates.

For products, listed prices do not include taxes or shipping and handling charges.

All fees for Software paid to VTech are non-refundable except as otherwise provided in these Terms.  In the event that you do not pay the fees when they are due, we reserve the right to terminate your account or to restrict your access to services.

18. Payment; Credit for Refunds

Only valid credit cards or other payment methods acceptable to us may be used and all refunds will be credited to the same card or, in our discretion, other method. By submitting your order, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to use the designated card or method and authorize us to charge your order (including taxes, shipping, handling and any other amounts described on the Site) to that card or other method. If the card (or other method) cannot be verified, is invalid, or is not otherwise acceptable, your order may be suspended or cancelled automatically. Regarding ‘Your Account,’ you agree to keep all payment cards or other payment method information current and you agree that we may submit charges for processing even if the card (or other method) has expired or changed by the time we submit it. You must resolve any problem we encounter in order to proceed with your order.

19. Errors

We attempt to be as accurate as possible and eliminate errors on the Site and with respect to our Services.  However, the information, materials and services provided on or through this Site or in connection with our Services may be out of date, incomplete, unreliable, or contain errors. Neither VTech nor any of its affiliated parties makes any commitment or voluntarily assumes any duty to update such information, materials or services, and they shall not be liable for any such errors. VTech reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to correct any errors or omissions in any portion of the Site or Services. Where the error relates to an ordered Product, we reserve the right to the fullest extent permissible by applicable law to correct such error and revise your order accordingly if necessary (including charging the correct price) or to cancel the order and refund any amount charged. To the fullest extent permissible by applicable law, your sole remedy in the event of such error is to cancel your order and obtain a refund.

21. Security of Data in Transit

Personal information is protected on the Service and subject to the Privacy Policy. We use industry standard Transport Layer Security (TLS) to protect your data in transit wherever feasible. However, it is impossible to guarantee 100% protection from compromise when data is in transit over public networks. You understand and assume the risk when interacting with the Service over the Internet.

Personal data, including content transmitted by your Device(s), is protected on the Service and subject to the Privacy Policy. Encryption of data moving to the Service across the Internet depends on the Device (and the firmware installed thereon) and its ability to support encryption. Not all Devices can support encryption to deliver the functions they provide. Devices may support optimized encryption that has minimal impact on the performance of a video or audio stream. Devices may support Transport Layer Security through SSL to fully encrypt the payload wherever relevant and feasible. CHECK THE SPECIFICATIONS OF YOUR DEVICE WHEN YOU PURCHASE IT TO DETERMINE THE SUPPORTED METHODS OF ENCRYPTION TO THE SERVICE.

VTech is not responsible for how you use your own personal data or other users’ data. You, the user, bear sole responsibility for all personal data and content (including without limitation any audio and/or video content) you create and/or share using the services, as well as any claims made against you by another party or entity relating to your data. Should you choose to share your data with others, you do so at your own risk. Further, you are responsible for any loss or damage incurred as a result of exposure to any content you access using our services.

22. AGREEMENT TO BINDING ARBITRATION AND WAIVER OF CLASS ACTION

YOU AND WE (AND OUR AFFILIATES AND SUBSIDIARIES, DEFINED BELOW) AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR OUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY CLASS ACTION, REPRESENTATIVE OR MULTI-CLAIMANT PROCEEDING.

PLEASE READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY, AS IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS—including the right to maintain a court action, the right to a jury trial, the right to participate in any form of class or representative claim, the right to statutorily imposed limitations periods, the right to engage in certain discovery, the right to certain remedies and forms of relief, and the right to court review of any award—which may not be available in arbitration. 

To the fullest extent permitted by law, you and VTech agree to arbitrate all disputes between you and VTech and/or its affiliates arising under the Terms, except disputes relating to the enforcement of VTech’s, its affiliates, subsidiaries, or its licensors’ intellectual property rights.  ‘Dispute’ should be interpreted as broadly as possible, and includes, but is not limited to, any dispute, action or other controversy between you and us concerning the VTech Content, or these Terms, use of the Site, and any purchases of goods or services, whether in contract, tort, warranty, statute or regulation or other legal or equitable basis.

Most of our customers’ concerns can be resolved by calling the support number listed in the User Manual associated with your respective product. In the event Customer Service is unable to resolve a complaint to your satisfaction, this section explains how any Disputes (as defined below) are resolved through arbitration.

Choice of Law:  This agreement is governed by the laws of the State of Oregon, without giving effect to any conflict of laws principles.  If you are a resident of the United States of America, these Terms shall be construed and controlled by the laws of the state of Oregon, U.S.A. 

International Residents:  If you are a resident of any country other than the Unites States of America, these Terms shall be construed and controlled by the laws of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China. Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms, or the breach thereof, shall be determined by arbitration administered by a single arbitrator appointed by the International Centre for Dispute Resolution in accordance with its International Arbitration Rules. The location of any such arbitration shall be Hong Kong

Venue:  If you are a resident of the United States, arbitration will take place at any reasonable location convenient for you if you continue the arbitration. If you do not choose a location, the arbitration will be held in Multnomah County, Oregon.  For residents outside the United States, arbitration shall be initiated in Multnomah County, Oregon, United States of America, and you and VTech agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal or state courts located there, in order to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration or confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. The Parties irrevocably submit to the venue and jurisdiction of such courts and waive any objections to such venue and jurisdiction, including, without limitation, objections based on venue, jurisdiction or an inconvenient forum.

Informal Negotiation:  Any party who intends to seek arbitration must first provide to the other party a written notice of the Dispute (‘Notice’), describing the facts and circumstances of the Dispute and the specific relief sought, and including any supporting documentation.  The Notice must be mailed via certified or registered mail to: 9020 SW Washington Square Drive, Suite 555, Tigard, OR 97223, Attention: Legal/Arbitration Notice or to you at any billing and/or shipping address in your online account or other known address.  If we are unable to reach an agreement through informal negotiation to resolve the Dispute within 60 days after the Notice is received, either party may commence arbitration.

Procedures:  If you and VTech do not resolve a dispute by informal negotiation, the dispute shall be settled by binding arbitration before a neutral arbitrator whose decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act (the ‘FAA’).  The FAA and federal arbitration law apply to these terms of use.  There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited.  However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow these terms of use as a court would.  The arbitrator’s award is binding and may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.  Any arbitration under these terms and conditions shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association (‘AAA’), and pursuant to the then applicable AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules and Mediation Procedures.  You can obtain copies of the AAA Rules at AAA’s website (www.adr.org) or by calling 800-778-7879.  You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, in person in the county where you live, or at another mutually agreed location.  We will reimburse your reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs for claims totaling less than $10,000 and agree not to seek attorneys’ fees or costs from you. 

No class actions or consolidation of Disputes:  To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, we agree that any Dispute resolution proceeding will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated, collective, private attorney general, or representative action, and you further agree that you will not be a member of any putative or actual class in a class action brought by anyone else, nor will you sell, assign, or transfer any Dispute.  Unless we both agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate other persons’ claims with yours or ours, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative, multi-claimant or class arbitration proceeding.  The arbitrator may not award declaratory or injunctive relief, order us to pay any monies, or take any actions with respect to persons other than you, and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that your individual dispute, unless we explicitly consent in advance, after an arbitrator is selected, to permit the arbitrator to enter such an order. 

Enforceability:  If any portion of this Agreement to Arbitrate and Waive Class Claims is found to be void or unenforceable as to a particular claim, then that claim (and only that claim) shall be resolved in the United States District Court for the District of Oregon rather than in arbitration; if there is no federal jurisdiction, the case shall be resolved in state courts located in Multnomah County, Oregon. 

Survival after termination:  This Agreement to Arbitrate and Waive Class Claims will survive after the Terms terminate or your use of the Site or Services ends.  Any cause of action or claim you may have with respect to the Site, products, or services must be commenced within one year after the claim or cause of action arises or be barred forever, or to the fullest extent permissible by applicable law.  Notwithstanding the other provisions in this Agreement to Arbitrate and Waive Class Claims, if we have a reasonable basis to believe that you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate any of our intellectual property rights, we may bring suit in state courts located in Multnomah County, Oregon, or, if brought in a federal district court, United States District Court for the District of Oregon, rather than through arbitration.  You agree that you will submit to the jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in Multnomah County, Oregon.

23. Stored Data and Content

Unless specifically purchased by you as a subscription upgrade to the Service, VTech will not store any data or content transmitted from any Device associated with your account, and such data or content is not available or accessible by you or any third party. If you do purchase one of the subscription upgrade plans (as described at www.vtechphones.com/products/wireless-monitoring/ip-camera/cloudrecording), the motion-activated video and audio captured by your Device(s) will be stored by VTech’s cloud service partners, and you will be able to download or access such video, for the time period and as specified in the plan description. Any content captured by your Device(s) that is beyond the timeframe specified in your plan description will be permanently deleted. VTech will not backup or provide redundancy for any data or content. YOU AGREE TO ASSUME ANY AND ALL RISK ASSOCIATED WITH FAILING TO BACKUP OR MAKE COPIES OF YOUR DATA OR CONTENT, AND VTECH HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL LIABILITY ASSOCIATED WITH A FAILURE TO BACKUP OR PROVIDE REDUNDANCY FOR SUCH DATA OR CONTENT. 

Even if you purchase a subscription upgrade for the Service for the purpose of adding historic recall of data and video/audio content, your data and/or video/audio content will be permanently deleted from the VTech platform and associated servers if any of the following occur:

If a Device is removed or disassociated from an account; or

If your subscription lapses or you otherwise fail to renew or pay for your subscription plan.

24. Third-Party Websites and Products

VTech may post links to websites or products not owned by VTech, belonging to a third party. In so doing, we are not endorsing any such website or products. VTech bears no responsibility for the practices, content, functionality or accessibility of third-party websites, services and products.

25. Response to Law Enforcement Inquiries

As a general matter, VTech will not view or access, or allow third parties to view or access, any data or content associated with your account. However, VTech may need to comply with efforts by law enforcement officials, with appropriate jurisdiction, to obtain access to stored data, including content associated with an account or a specific Device. You acknowledge that VTech has no obligation to notify you of any such warrants, subpoenas, court orders or other law enforcement requests and, in some cases, VTech may be compelled to refrain from notifying you of such requests. VTech’s compliance with any warrant, subpoena, court orders or other law enforcement requests shall in no way be interpreted as VTech’s agreement or acquiescence to be governed by or subject to the laws of the subject jurisdiction or to be subject to personal jurisdiction of such jurisdiction.

26. Severability

If any provision of these Terms or portion thereof is determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or otherwise unenforceable, then such provision will, to the extent permitted by the court, not be voided but will instead be construed to give effect to its intent to the maximum extent permissible under applicable law and the remainder of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.

27. Electronic Communications

When you use parts of the Site or Services or send e-mails, text messages, and other communications from your desktop, laptop, or mobile device to us, you are communicating with us electronically. You consent to receive communications from us electronically, including but not limited to e-mails, text messages, mobile push notices, or notices and messages on this site or through other VTech Services, and you can retain copies of these communications for your records. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing and are effective immediately.

28. Contests, Sweepstakes and Other Activities

VTech may sometimes offer contests, sweepstakes, giveaways, and related events.  Each such event is subject to unique rules and/or guidelines (‘Rules of Participation’), which are incorporated herein by reference. To the extent that any conflict exists between these Terms and specific Rules of Participation, the Rules of Participation for the activity in which you choose to participate shall govern.

29. Submissions and Unsolicited Ideas Policies

In connection with unsolicited creative ideas, suggestions or materials you submit to us, whether or not solicited by us, you agree that creative ideas, suggestions or other materials you submit are not being made in confidence or trust and that no confidential or fiduciary relationship is intended or created between you and us in any way, and that you have no expectation of review, compensation or consideration of any type.
