THIRD PARTY LINKS 

The Site, App, Services or Content may contain links to websites, products and other resources operated by third parties other than kari (“Linked Sites”).  Such links are provided solely as a convenience to you.  kari does not control such Linked Sites, and is not responsible for the content, products, services or information offered by any third parties.  The inclusion of links to the Linked Sites on the Site, App or Services does not imply any endorsement or any website or the content, products or services offered, advertised, endorsed or promoted by any third party, or of any company or person.  If you decide to access any Linked Sites or acquire any third party products or services, you do so entirely at your own risk, and you may be subject to the terms and conditions and the privacy policies imposed by such third parties.

FARES, CHARGES AND PAYMENTS

You understand that if you request or use ride-sharing transportation services from a Driver using the App, you may be charged.  These charges will include fares as well as any other applicable fees, tolls, surcharges and taxes, plus any tips to the Driver that a Rider decides to provide (if any). 

When kari presents estimated fares, that fare is an estimate only and the passenger User will be charged based on actual travel time, distance or both.   Where the fare is presented as up front and agrees to pay that fare, the User will be charged that fare for that specific trip.  

All charges will be due immediately.  Unless you have credit on your Account, you agree to pay for all charges using the credit card that you provided when you registered for an Account.  You may have credit in your Account as a result of coupons provided by kari.  The credit associated with those coupons is only valid for use on the App and is not transferable or redeemable for cash, except as may be required by law.  If the cost of your ride exceeds the applicable credit, we will charge your credit card for the outstanding cost of the trip.  Additional restrictions on coupons may apply as communicated to you in a relevant promotion or by clicking on the relevant coupon within the App.

You are responsible for ensuring that the credit card linked to your Account is valid and has sufficient credit.  All payments are non-refundable, except where required by applicable law.

kari reserves the right to determine and modify fares and fees associated with the App and its Services.  Pricing may vary based on the User’s location, time of the requested ride, availability of driver Users and other factors.  In addition, kari reserves the right to increase fares in certain geographical areas during times of high demand or peak periods.  You are responsible for all charges connected with your Account using the App, regardless or your awareness of the applicable fare, fees, tolls, surcharges and/or taxes.

You may cancel a ride that you have requested through the App, but may be charged a cancellation fee in certain circumstances.  You may also be charged a cancellation fee if you fail to show up after requesting a ride. 

You may decide, but are not required, to tip a Driver through the App.  Any tips will be provided entirely to the applicable Driver.  Drivers must not accept payment by cash or by any method or system of payment that is separate from the App.  

As explained in our Privacy Policy, kari uses a third-party payment processor to link your credit card to the App.  This means that the processing of your payment will be subject to the terms and conditions of our payment processor.  kari will only receive certain transaction details from the payment processor to enable it to confirm that payment has been made in connection with your use of the App, and to provide you with an electronic receipt for all transportation arranged using the App.  You understand and agree that you are responsible for managing and updating the billing and payment information associated with your Account to ensure that it is current and accurate.

If a Driver reports that you have materially damaged or soiled the Driver’s vehicle, you agree to pay the Driver a repair fee of up to CDN $250, depending on the extent of the damage (as determined by kari in our sole discretion), towards vehicle repair or cleaning.  kari reserves the right (but is not required) to facilitate payment of the repair fee to the Driver using the credit card connected to your Account.  If kari facilitates the payment, we reserve the right (but are not obligated) to verify or otherwise require documentation of damage prior to processing the repair fee. 

DISCLAIMERS

kari is not responsible for the conduct of any User of the Site, App or its Services.  By using the Site, App and/or Services, you agree to accept such risks and agree that kari is not responsible for the acts or omissions of Users on the App or when involved in ride-sharing transportation.

You acknowledge and understand that kari does not provide transportation services and is not a transportation carrier.  kari connects Riders and Drivers using the App.  The ride-sharing transportation service itself is provided by the Drivers independently.  While kari assists Drivers in ensuring they have appropriate training, licensing and insurance for ride-sharing, Drivers are responsible for their training, licensing and insurance.  Any ride-sharing transportation service provided by a Driver to a Rider is governed by a separate agreement between those Users.  

kari cannot guarantee or verify the identity of each User, and so Users should use common sense when using the App and arranging for ride-sharing transportation services with Drivers.  If you are connected with a Driver, you will be able to see the driver’s photograph, vehicle information, and geolocation as the vehicle approaches your pickup location.  You are responsible for verifying the identity of the Driver before you get into the Driver’s vehicle.  

It is each User’s responsibility to decide whether or not to offer or accept ride-sharing transportation service from another User.  kari cannot ensure that a Driver or Rider will complete a scheduled trip.  

kari has no control over the quality or safety of the ride-sharing transportation service that a Driver provides to a User.  

kari is not responsible for any personal belongings that you leave in a Driver’s vehicle.   

You should be careful about what information you choose to share with other Users, and kari encourages Users to use the in-App communication tool that enables Drivers and Riders to communicate with each other without sharing phone numbers.  kari is not responsible for the use of any personal information that you disclose to other Users on the App or while participating in ride-sharing transportation services.  

kari is not responsible for any charges, including data overage fees, that may be charged by your mobile device service provider as a result of your use of the Site or the App.  You are responsible for monitoring your own data consumption, and any charges incurred by you as a result.  You should check with your mobile device carrier to understand what data and messaging rates will apply when you access and use the Site and App through your mobile device.
