The Service: The Service allows two or more users to communicate by videoconference, audioconference, text message, content sharing or otherwise from multiple devices using our proprietary software (each such communication, a “Call”).
Registration; Account: If you or your organization has subscribed to the Service, you will be required to register and create an account (a “User Account”), either directly as a customer if you subscribed directly or under the master administrative account of your organization, and at such time, you will be issued a user identification and password. However, if you were invited to join the applicable Call as a guest by a registered user, you may use the Service for that Call without creating a User Account. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your User Account and related details, including your user identification and password. You must notify us immediately in the event that you learn or suspect that your user identification, password or any other User Account information has been compromised so that we may promptly take actions to prevent their unauthorized use by other parties, and you hereby expressly authorize us to take any such actions.

You expressly agree that we have no responsibility or liability to anyone with respect to such matters, or with respect to any difficulty or inconvenience that you or any User experiences attempting to utilize any item of hardware or attempting to connect any item of hardware to the Internet, except with respect to warranty or support obligations we may separately have with respect to hardware purchased or licensed from us under the explicit terms relating thereto. Vidyo, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to add/change/remove additional features or functions, or to provide programming fixes, updates and upgrades, to the User Software.
