Effective Date: January 2020
This agreement is a legally binding contract. It may change (in accordance with the provisions below) as our business changes, and you agree you will review it and any updates regularly. Your continued use of the Service means you accept any changes.
Binding Agreement. These Terms constitute a binding agreement between you and Dubai UNITED TRANS. and its affiliates and subsidiaries (“UNITED TRANS,” “Company,” “we,” “us”). “You” and “users” shall mean all users of the Service. You accept these Terms each time you access the Service. If you do not accept these Terms, you must not use the Service. If you are under 18 years of age, you represent and agree that you possess the legal consent of your parent or guardian to access and use the Service.
Revisions to Terms. We reserve the right to revise these Terms at any time by posting an updated version to the extent the changes do not affect our ongoing contractual obligations and the main characteristics of the Service. If changes affect our ongoing legal obligations and/or the main characteristics of the Service, we will inform you in advance United Trans email. If you do not object by the deadline provided in the e-mail, you will become bound by the updated Terms.
The terms “post” and “posting” as used in these Terms shall mean the act of submitting, transmitting, sharing, uploading, publishing, displaying, or similar action on the Service.
The “Service” means any website, mobile application, or Internet service under UNITED TRANS, whether partial or otherwise, in connection with providing UNITED TRANS’s online platform that enables users to connect with vehicle-sharing transportation in the city. Each reservation a user makes with such vehicle-sharing transportation providers on the Service is a “Reservation,” and each ride taken through a Reservation is a “Ride.” In determining the fees for and accepting your requests for reservations, we act on behalf of the transportation providers and not for riders.
Eligibility to Use the Service
Children. No part of the Service is directed to persons under the age of 16. IF YOU ARE UNDER 18 YEARS OF AGE, PLEASE DO NOT USE OR ACCESS THE SERVICE AT ANY TIME OR IN ANY MANNER. Children under the age of 18 are only allowed to participate on a Ride when accompanied with a guardian, parent or another adult who has registered for the Services in a legally valid manner.
No one under the age of 18 is allowed to register with or use the Service without the consent of a parent or guardian. If you are under the age of 18, by registering for and using the Service, you warrant and represent that you have consent to do so from a parent or guardian. If you are a parent or guardian of a minor who has registered for or used the Service without your consent, please contact us at UNITED TRANS.
Your Log-In Credentials. To use the Service, you may need to log-in by providing a username, password, and cellular phone number. Your account is personal to you, and you may not share your account information with, or allow access to your account by, any third party. As you will be responsible for all activity that occurs under your access credentials (including, without limitation, the behavior of any other people that travel in your party), you agree to use reasonable efforts to prevent unauthorized access to or use of the Service and to preserve the confidentiality of your username and password, and any device that you use to access the Service.
You agree to notify us immediately of any breach in secrecy of your log-in information. If you have any reason to believe that your account information has been compromised or that a third party has accessed your account, you agree to immediately notify the Company by e-mail to UNITED TRANS. You will be solely responsible for the losses incurred by the Company and others due to any unauthorized use of your account.
Payments and Billing
UNITED TRANS charges a fee (the “Fee”) for the use of the Service. You will be charged when your Ride is complete, provided that we may pre-authorize and hold an estimated amount of the Fee on your card before the Ride begins. Your payment to us as the commercial agent of the Transportation provider will discharge your obligation to the transportation provider in respect of the Fee. All Fees are non-refundable. Fees include any applicable VAT.
No termination Allowed. After placing the Reservation, termination is only allowed within 90 seconds.
Cancellation Policy. If you cancel a reservation, we may charge you a cancelation fee as indicated here. Repeated cancellations may result in the suspension of your account, in UNITED TRANS’s sole discretion.
No-Show Policy. If you are not present at the time and place designated in your Reservation, we may charge you a no-show fee as indicated here. Repeated “no-show” instances may result in the suspension of your account, in UNITED TRANS’s sole discretion.
Cleaning/Damage Fees. If the interior or exterior of your driver’s vehicle is damaged or dirtied as a result of intentional or negligent acts such as aggressive slamming of doors, vomiting, or pet accidents, an additional cleaning or damage Fee may be assessed and charged.
UNITED TRANS Credits and Promotional Codes. You may purchase credit towards future Rides. Purchases of UNITED TRANS Credit are non-refundable and may only be used with the Service. UNITED TRANS may offer promotional codes with varying features and rates that are redeemable for UNITED TRANS Credit. Any such promotional code is valid until its stated expiration date.
If you make a Reservation and multiple people are travelling in your party, you, as the account associated with the Reservation, are responsible for the conduct of everybody travelling in your party.
When you make a reservation, you must indicate how many people are travelling in your party. If you do not, we reserve the right to refuse service to additional guests or charge an additional Fee.
UNITED TRANS may communicate with you by email, text message or posting notice on the Service. You may request that we provide notice of security breaches in writing.
You agree to receive email from us at the email address you provided to us for customer service-related purposes.
Electronic Notices. By using the Service or providing Personal Information to us, you agree that we may communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of the Service. If we learn of a security system’s breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically by posting a notice on the Service or sending an email to you. You may have a legal right to receive this notice in writing. To receive free written notice of a security breach (or to withdraw your consent from receiving electronic notice), please write to us at email@example.com.
