1. Offering and Availability of our Services

Our Services.We offer systems that enable you to pay parking fees (our 'parking payment systems') and other services related to parking and car use (the 'related services'). Our parking payment systems allow you to settle parking fees for specific on‐street or off‐street locations without the need to use cash. Instead, you register a parking action with our parking payment systems using the available methods and you will pay your parking fees through us. We will (periodically) charge you for your parking fees and any related service ordered by you. For more details on the specific services we provide, please review https://www.myringgo.co.uk.

Availability. You acknowledge that the use and availability of our parking payment systems is highly dependent on the operation of ‐ for example ‐ your mobile device, the internet, your GPS receiver and other resources you can use to access our services. If you are unable to access and use our parking payment systems, for any reason, you, and not we, are required to use alternative payment methods to pay for parking or there may be a risk that you could be liable for additional parking fees and parking tickets.

In case of any difficulties, please contact our helpdesk at support@ringgo.co.uk

For the avoidance of doubt, we cannot ensure availability of our parking payment systems and related services. Neither can we ensure availability of a parking space.

Partners. Our parking payment systems and related services may be used in combination with services offered by our partners. Our partners will have their own terms of service and you will be required to accept their terms of service before use. We are not responsible for the service offered by our partners.
