When We process Your credit card, some credit card companies may place a temporary hold on Your account for Your first payment. Please contact Your credit card company if You have questions. Please note that We do not provide price protection or refunds in the event of a price drop or promotional offering.
ONCE YOUR FREE TRIAL ENDS, WE OR A THIRD PARTY PAYMENT PROCESSOR WILL BEGIN BILLING YOUR DESIGNATED PAYMENT METHOD ON A RECURRING BASIS FOR YOUR SUBSCRIPTION (PLUS ANY APPLICABLE TAXES AND OTHER CHARGES), UNLESS YOU CANCEL YOUR SUBSCRIPTION PRIOR TO THE END OF YOUR FREE TRIAL. IF YOUR FREE TRIAL ENDS AND YOUR SUBSCRIPTION BEGINS, YOUR SUBSCRIPTION WILL AUTORENEW AND YOU WILL BE BILLED ON A RECURRING BASIS FOR YOUR EACH SUBSCRIPTION PERIOD UNLESS YOU CANCEL. INSTRUCTIONS FOR CANCELING YOUR MEMBERSHIP SUBSCRIPTION ARE DESCRIBED BELOW. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A NOTICE FROM US THAT YOUR FREE TRIAL HAS ENDED OR THAT THE PAID PORTION OF YOUR SUBSCRIPTION HAS BEGUN. WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO MODIFY OR TERMINATE FREE TRIALS AT ANY TIME, WITHOUT NOTICE AND IN OUR SOLE AND ABSOLUTE DISCRETION.
2.3 Maximum Rental Time and Charges. The maximum rental time is 24 hours. User agrees that User will deactivate the Vehicle rental within 24 hours of renting a Vehicle. User may then rent again. User agrees that he/she is solely responsible for being aware of the length of any elapsed ride time. The maximum day charge is $100 and is based on a calendar day. After return of the Vehicle, User will be charged the accumulated rental charges, or the maximum day charge, whichever is less.
Rental time will be calculated from the moment of unlocking the LOOPShare through the LOOPShare App until the User receives the confirmation through the LOOPShare App that the ride has been ended. If You end the ride incorrectly, this may result in the Ride not being terminated. If the ride is not ended properly, the Ride will continue and the User will continue to be charged. If you have technical issues terminating a ride for any reason, You should report this to LOOPShare through the LOOPShare App immediately. Failure to report an issue in terminating a ride may result in continued charges.
Vehicles not returned (with the ride concluded) within 48 hours will be considered lost or stolen, and User may be charged up to the value of the Vehicle plus administrative and processing fees. LOOPShare may also charge additional service fees for rentals in excess of 24 hours where the Vehicle is not lost or stolen.
2.4 Valid Payment Method. To be registered to use the LOOPShare Services, User must provide LOOPShare with a valid credit, debit card or prepaid card number and expiration date or other valid payment method information. User represents and warrants to LOOPShare that User is authorized to use any credit, debit or prepaid card or other payment method information User furnishes to LOOPShare. By providing your payment method, You agree that LOOPShare is authorized to charge You for your ride and any other fees incurred by User under this Agreement, including all applicable governmental and regulatory charges and applicable sales and other taxes.
When you provide a payment method or in accordance with LOOPShare policies, our system will attempt to verify the information you entered. We do this by processing an authorization hold, which is a standard practice. We do not charge you in connection with this authorization hold. If Your payment method expires and You do not update your information or cancel your account, You authorize us to continue billing, and You will remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. We reserve the right to retry billing all payment method(s) on file after any failed billing attempt. You will remain liable for all such amounts and all costs incurred in connection with the collection of these amounts, including, without limitation, bank overdraft fees, collection agency fees, reasonable attorneys’ fees, and arbitration or court costs.
User agrees that LOOPShare may, in its sole discretion, pay all traffic tickets, impound fees, fines and/or charges on User’s behalf directly to the appropriate authority or applicable party. If LOOPShare is required to pay and/or process such fees or associated costs, User agrees that LOOPShare may charge You for the amount LOOPShare pays plus a reasonable administration charge for dealing with these matters; LOOPShare will provide notice of any such costs or fees.
In the event LOOPShare uses a third party collection and/or administrative agent to resolve any tickets, damages, infringements of law or of this Agreement, fines and/or penalties, User agrees to pay all costs and collection fees including, but not limited to, administrative and legal costs to such agent upon demand without protest.
If User disputes any charge on User’s payment method, then User must contact LOOPShare within 15 business days from the end of the month with the disputed charge, and provide to LOOPShare all trip information that is necessary to identify the disputed charge. User agrees to immediately inform LOOPShare of all changes relating to the payment method.
If You have agreed to make automatic or recurring payments, such payments will continue until you cancel or your account is terminated. You can cancel by following the instructions on the LOOPShare App. If you cancel, You may use any remaining balance on your account but may not be able to continue using LOOPShare Services until you have reauthorized an applicable payment method. LOOPShare may continue to charge your payment method for any additional fees or charges incurred under this Agreement.

You will: (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about You as prompted by the LOOPShare Services’ registration or subscription page (such information being the “Registration Data”) and (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If You provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or LOOPShare has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, LOOPShare has the right to suspend or terminate Your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the LOOPShare Services (or any portion thereof).

Please note that anyone able to provide Your personally identifiable information will be able to access Your account so You should take reasonable steps to protect this information.
2.6 Pick Up Fees. If You are unable to return a Vehicle to a valid area and request that the Vehicle be picked up by LOOPShare staff, LOOPShare, at its sole discretion, may charge You a pick-up fee. If any Vehicle accessed under Your account is abandoned without notice, You will be responsible for all trip fees until the Vehicle is recovered and deactivated, plus a service charge to recover the Vehicle. Fees are subject to change.
2.7 Mispriced Products or Services. We do our best to describe every item, product or service offered on the LOOPShare Services as accurately as possible. However, We are human, and therefore We do not warrant that specifications or pricing on the LOOPShare Services is complete, accurate, reliable, current, or error-free.

If LOOPShare deems a Vehicle lost or stolen, LOOPShare shall have the authority to take any and all actions it deems appropriate (with respect to the last User of a Vehicle or otherwise), including (without limitation) obtaining restitution and other appropriate compensation and damages and filing a police report with local authorities.

Alternative means of public and private transportation are available to the general public and to User individually, including public buses and train service, taxis, and pedestrian paths.

9. Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY – IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT.
9.1 Initial Dispute Resolution. User Support is available via the LOOPShare App to address any concerns you may have regarding your use of a Vehicle and/or this Agreement. The parties shall use their best efforts through this support process to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement and engage in good faith negotiations which shall be a condition to either party initiating mediation, arbitration, or a lawsuit.
9.2 Binding Arbitration
If the parties do not reach an agreed upon solution through the support process, then either party may initiate binding arbitration as the sole means to resolve claims, subject to the terms set forth below. Specifically, all claims arising out of or relating to use and rental of a Vehicle, this Agreement, and the parties’ relationship with each other shall be finally settled by binding arbitration administered by the International Centre for Dispute Resolution (“ICDR”), or alternatively a mutually agreed upon arbitrator or arbitration service, under the applicable commercial arbitration rules for ICDR or the mutually agreed upon arbitration service, excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions.
The arbitrator, and not any federal, provincial, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Agreement, including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this Agreement are void or voidable, or whether a claim is subject to arbitration. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator’s award shall be written, and binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
To the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds the cost of filing a lawsuit, LOOPShare will pay the additional cost. The arbitration rules also permit you to recover attorney’s fees in certain cases. The parties understand that, absent this mandatory provision, they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. They further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.
9.3 Location. The arbitration will take place in Vancouver, British Columbia or a mutually agreed upon location.
9.4 Class Action Waiver. The parties further agree that any arbitration shall be conducted in their individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. YOU AND LOOPSHARE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provision set forth above shall be deemed null and void in its entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.
9.5 Litigation of Intellectual Property and Small Claims Court Claims. Notwithstanding the parties’ decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may bring an action in provincial, state or federal court to protect its intellectual property rights (“intellectual property rights” means patents, copyrights, moral rights, trademarks, and trade secrets, but not privacy or publicity rights). Either party may also seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court’s jurisdiction.
9.6 Right to Opt Out. You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth above by sending written notice of your decision to opt-out to the following address: LOOPShare Ltd., Suite 106 – 131 Water Street, Vancouver, B.C., Canada V6B 4M3. The notice must be sent within 30 days of the effective date or your first use of the Service, whichever is later, otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of those paragraphs. If you opt-out of these arbitration provisions, LOOPShare also will not be bound by them.
9.7 Changes to this Section
LOOPShare will provide prior written notice of any changes to this section. Changes will become effective only after prior written notice and will apply prospectively only to any claims arising after the notice period.
For any dispute not subject to arbitration you and LOOPShare agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of and venue in the federal and provincial courts located in Vancouver, British Columbia. You further agree to accept service of process by mail, and hereby waive any and all jurisdictional and venue defenses otherwise available.
10. Waiver and Severability. No waiver of any breach of any provision of this Agreement is a waiver of any other breach or of any other provision of this Agreement. The provisions of this Agreement are independent of and separable from each other, and no provision shall be affected or rendered invalid or unenforceable by virtue of the fact that for any reason any other or others of them may be invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part.
11. Cumulative Remedies. All rights and remedies granted under or referred to in this Agreement are cumulative and nonexclusive, and resort to one does not preclude the availability or applicability of another or to any other right or remedy provided by law.
12. Final Agreement; Modification by LOOPShare. This Agreement contains the complete, final, and exclusive integrated agreement between the parties with respect to its subject matter. This Agreement supersedes all other prior agreements, written or oral, relating to such subject matter.

What are Cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer or mobile device that enable us to, among other things,: (i) recognize your computer or device; (ii) store your preferences and settings; (iii) understand the parts of the Services you have visited; (iv) enhance your user experience by delivering and measuring the effectiveness of content and advertising tailored to your interests; (v) perform searches and analytics; and (vi) assist with security and administrative functions. For more information on cookies, go to www.allaboutcookies.org.
The term “Cookie” is used in this Cookie Notice in the broad sense to include all similar techniques and technology, including web beacons, tracking pixels, and log files.
Types of information collected and reasons for collection
• To remind us who you are and to find your account information in our database when you access the Services so you do not need to log in at every visit. This helps us to provide you with service tailored to your specific needs and interests. A cookie is created when you register for the Services
• To determine the browser the visitor uses so the Services can be designed to work properly with the most common versions of different browsers
• In conjunction with sending you e-mail newsletters
• To analyse your use of our Services and to generate analytics regarding our Services
• To estimate our audience size. Your browser is given a unique cookie that helps us determine whether yours is a repeat visit or a first visit
• To determine whether you are visiting our Services for the first time
• To save viewing preferences (e.g. layout, sizing preferences, language etc.);
• Facilitate your purchases and your orders
In addition, Cookies allow us to do the following:
• Customise your visit: We may use information collected during your visit to facilitate your next visit to our Services;
• Customise the advertising and marketing messages that appear on the Services, whether ours or those of third parties; and
• Analyse customer trends: We compile information on individual Services visits and analyse them as a whole in aggregated form.
Type of Cookies We Use
We use first party and third party Cookies for several reasons. Some Cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Services to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” Cookies. Other Cookies enable us to track and target the interests of our users and to enhance the experience on our Services. Third parties also serve Cookies through our Services for advertising, analytics and other purposes. The specific types of first and third party Cookies served through our Services and the purposes they perform are described in more detail below.
– First-party Cookies
These cookies are created by LOOPShare. They are, for the most part, used to allow you to browse our Services and use its features. First-party cookies include:
• Essential Website Cookies: These Cookies are strictly necessary to provide you with services available through our Services and to use some of its features, such as access to secure areas.
• Functional Cookies: These Cookies allow you to browse our Services or benefit from some of its features, such as memorizing language preferences or placing orders online.
• Analytics Cookies: These Cookies allow us to collect statistics (aggregated and anonymous) on the usage of the Services by you and other visitors. This information helps us improve the features offered on the Services.
– Third-party cookies
In addition to our proprietary Cookies, some third-party and affiliated companies may place Cookies on your computer, access them and associate web beacons with them. These Cookies enable third-party features or functionalities to be provided on or through the Services. The parties that set these third-party Cookies can recognize your device both when it visits our Services and also when it visits certain other websites. Third-party cookies include:
• Functional Cookies: These Cookies are defined by third parties who support our Services and they allow you to use useful services and features, such as support services or payment processing.
• Online Behavioural Advertising Cookies: These Cookies are defined by our advertising partners and collect data about your browsing habits, as well as your preferences for products and services. This information allows LOOPShare and the ad networks that we work with to display relevant ads on the most relevant pages of partner sites and the LOOPShare Services. For example, third parties or affiliates may manage LOOPShare advertising programs on a non-LOOPShare site.
Duration of storage of cookies on your device
The duration of storage of Cookies on your device may vary, depending on the category to which they belong: temporary or permanent.
– Temporary Cookies
We use temporary Cookies on all of our secure pages to assign and register a session ID. This identifier is also used for internal reporting purposes. It does not allow us to identify you personally by name and this type of Cookie does not leave any information recoverable on your hard drive. Most of our proprietary Cookies fall into this category and expire when you close your Internet browser.
– Permanent Cookies
Our proprietary analysis Cookies and third-party Cookies are permanent Cookies. They allow us to understand visitors’ browsing behaviour over a longer period of time or to provide you with additional features related to your Services customisation requests and the content that you have saved or stored. They can stay on your computer for 24 hours, a week or several years, depending on their function. This means that these Cookies survive after your browser is closed and can be used by our Services to recognize your computer when you re-open your browser later.
If you do not want to receive some of the categories of Cookies used on our Services, you can use the means described below to disable them. Note, however, that we will still need to set a Cookie on your device to remember your preferences when you visit our Services again from a single browser.
At the moment, it is technically impossible for you to synchronise your settings between your browsers and your devices (your computer or your smartphone). You must set them on each browser/device that you currently use and each time you use a new browser or device.
You can decide whether to accept or reject Cookies. You can exercise your Cookie preferences by managing Cookies from your web browser. As the means by which to activate or deactivate Cookies varies from one web browser to another, you should visit your web browser’s help menu for more information on Cookie preferences. You can also configure your browser at any time to be notified of the receipt of a Cookie, so that you can decide whether you want to accept it or not. Cookies do not under any circumstances read the data from your hard drive and you can delete them from your computer at any time.
In addition, most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of targeted advertising. If you would like to find out more information, please visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or http://www.youronlinechoices.com.
Consequences of Deactivation of all Cookies
If you choose to deactivate all Cookies, you may continue to use certain parts of our Services. However, some useful features may not work anymore.
Please note that if you have disabled one or more Cookies, we may continue to use the information that was collected by such Cookies before they were deactivated. However, we will cease to collect any additional information via the opted-out Cookie once a Cookie has been deactivated.
