2. The Services.
The Services comprise of the Websites, mobile applications and related services that provide access to an online marketplace where individuals seeking transportation to their desired destinations (“Transportation”) may book transportation services from Transport Providers. In certain instances, the Services may also include an option to create a User Account. Unless otherwise agreed by Company in a separate written agreement with you and/or any of the Business Partners, the Services are made available solely for your personal, non-commercial use.
Certain Transport Providers may, pursuant to their own policies, require additional information from you to facilitate the Transportation you booked with them (such as credit card for cancellation purposes), and therefore may use the information you provided upon booking to contract you directly. The Company has no control or responsibility over information you provide directly to the Transport Providers or information requested by the Transport Providers directly from you. You (and not the Company) are responsible for your decision whether to provide any information (including personal data) directly to Transport Providers. You hereby acknowledge and agree to the aforementioned.
By using the Services to request and/or book Transportation, you accept, agree, and acknowledge that your contract for Transportation is with the relevant Transport Provider and/or third party whose services you booked, and no direct legal relationship is created and assumed between you and HERE. You acknowledge and agree that we are not a party to your contract for Transportation. The Company does not own any fleet of vehicles, bicycles or motorcycles, and is not, in the business of providing Transportation; rather the Company is a technological service provider that enables, inter alia, access to transportation services provided by independent third-party providers. If you have any issues or disputes with respect to your booking of Transportation, you agree to address and resolve these issues with the relevant Transport Provider and/or third party whose services you booked, and not with us.
In the framework of the Services you may also be provided with information about available public transportation and micro-mobility vehicles (such as, bicycles, electric bicycles, electric scooters and small electric cars) and the route to the location where you can use and/or find them. You acknowledge that this information is intended for basic location and navigation purposes and should not be relied upon for any other purpose. Please note that the Company relies on third-party resources, including for example third party public transportation service providers, to obtain route, location and timetable information and is not responsible for the accuracy, reliability, completeness or error-free nature of this information.
The Websites provide you with the ability to learn more about our products and services and to register and sign up to use the Services that are relevant to you, and/or to sign up to our blog, newsletters and any other marketing content that we may make available to you therein.

These costs may include taxi or other fares, extras and applicable taxes where required by law and as applicable additional fees, tolls, surcharges, processing fees and tips (collectively, “Charges”). The Charges are entirely your responsibility and are part of your engagement with the Transport Provider whose services you book via the Services regardless of your awareness of such Charges or the amounts thereof.
(b) Fare Estimates. As part of the Services, you may be presented with an estimated fare for the Transportation you are booking. You acknowledge and agree that the estimated fares that are presented to you via the Services are determined solely by the Transport Providers and are a mere estimation. The actual fare you will be required to pay may vary substantially (upward or downward) as determined in the sole discretion of the relevant Transport Provider whose services you book and may be dependent on multiple factors including without limitation traffic and road conditions, time of travel, number of travelers, luggage pieces etc.
(c) Payments Representations. By using any payment method and/or providing payment details for booking Transportation via the Services, you represent and warrant that: (a) you are legally authorized to provide such information; (b) you are legally authorized or have permission to make payments using this payment method(s); (c) if you are an employee or agent of a company or person that owns the payment method, you are authorized by that company or person to use the relevant payment method to make payments as part of the Services; and (d) such actions do not violate any applicable law, rule or regulation.
(d) Payment Collection. The Transport Providers or the Company will collect payment of Charges owed by you to the Transport Providers whose services you use. When we collect your payment (which may be via one or more transactions), such collection will be made on the Transport Providers’ behalf as their limited payment collection agent. In such cases, your payment of the Charges to us satisfies and shall be considered the same as your payment obligation made directly by you to the relevant Transport Provider whose services you use.
(e) No Refunds; Cancellation Fee. All Charges paid by you are final and non-refundable, unless otherwise determined by the Transport Provider in accordance with its terms. If you want to cancel Transportation you booked with a Transport Provider, you may be charged a cancellation fee as determined by the Transport Provider. Please refer to the cancellation policy of the relevant Transport Provider with whom you booked Transportation via the Services. You may also be charged a cancellation fee as determined by the applicable Transport Provider if you fail to show up after you booked Transportation. We are not responsible for setting or determining the cancellation policy and/or fee that may be set by the respective Transport Provider, and the exact amount of the cancellation fee will vary from one Transport Provider to another in accordance with their cancellation policies.
(g) Damage Fee. If a Transport Provider informs us that you have materially damaged the vehicle used to provide you with the Transportation you booked and used, you agree to pay this Transport Provider a “Damage Fee” depending on the extent of the damage you have caused (as determined by the Transport Provider in its sole discretion) toward vehicle repair or cleaning. The Company reserves the right (but is not obligated) to verify or otherwise require documentation of damages prior to processing any Damage Fee.
(h) Coupons. You may receive coupons that you can apply toward payment of certain Charges upon completion of a Transportation you booked. Coupons cannot be combined. Coupons are only valid for use via the Services and are not transferable or redeemable for cash except as required by applicable law. If the cost of your ride exceeds a coupon’s credit or discount value, we will charge the payment method that we have on file for you, for the outstanding cost of the ride. Additional restrictions on coupons may apply as communicated to you in a relevant promotion or by clicking on the relevant coupon.
(i) In addition to the foregoing, when we collect your Charges and any other payment which is due to the Transport Provider from you (“Collected Payments”), the following shall apply:
- Facilitation of Charges. All Collected Payments are facilitated through third-party payment processing service(s) providers (“Payment Providers”) that provide payment services to us in connection with the Services, including with respect to (a) collection of funds from users in connection with booked Transportation; (b) remittance of funds to Transport Providers in connection with completed or cancelled Transportation; and (c) protection against fraud, unauthorized transactions (such as money laundering), claims or other liabilities in connection with making payments via the Services. In addition, we, through our Payment Providers, reserve the right to cancel booked Transportation or place funds on hold for any suspected fraudulent transactions made in connection with the Services.
Credit Card Authorization and Related Fees. When we add a new payment method or with each Transportation request, we may require authorization of your selected payment method to verify it, ensure Transportation cost will be covered, and protect against fraud. The authorization is not a charge; however, it may reduce your available credit by the authorization amount until your bank’s next processing cycle. Should the amount of our authorization exceed the total funds on deposit in your bank account, you may be subject to overdraft or Non-Sufficient Funds (NSF) charges by the bank or entity issuing your debit or prepaid card. We are not responsible for these charges and are unable to assist you in recovering them from your bank or issuer.
