Description of Service
CML operates a technology platform that enables authorized users in certain locations in the United States to, among other things, locate, hail, book, and/or hire third parties that provide ground transportation services via taxicab or other for-hire vehicles (any such taxicab or other for-hire vehicle, a “Taxi”), pay for a Taxi ride, and/or track certain Taxi rides and/or payments through a supported computing device (together with the Channels (defined below), the “Service”), which Service includes, and may be accessed by authorized users via, mobile device software applications (the “Applications”) such as the Curb® Application, certain text-based messaging protocols (“Text Services”), CML-authorized web interfaces or websites (“Websites”), including http://gocurb.com, and/or other means, whether currently existing of subsequently developed, that may be authorized by CML from time to time (such other means, together with the Applications, Text Services, and Websites, “Channels”). Using certain Channels, you may be able to store your payment information, set your tip preferences, and view all your past trips and receipts.
CML is not an issuer, financial institution, or money transmission business. Further, CML is not a provider of transportation services and does not own or operate any Taxis and does not have any control over the Taxi owners, managers, dispatchers, agents, drivers, and/or operators. CML, through the Service, only provides a platform to (1) obtain certain third party transportation services and (2) facilitate payment of fares for certain third party transportation services.
To use the Service, you must first create and register an account on the Curb platform (an “Account”) either via an Application, a Website, or another Channel having such functionality. By registering an Account, you represent and warrant that you can enter into a legally binding agreement and that all information submitted by you during such registration or otherwise via the Application, Website, or other Channel is truthful, complete, and accurate. As part of the registration process, you will be required to: (1) associate an email address with your Account (that will become your username) and establish a password for your Account; (2) associate a phone number with your Account that is capable of receiving text messages; and (3) submit one or more valid credit cards to be used in processing payment transactions for the Taxi rides you hail, book, hire, arrange, and/or pay for through the Service. For each credit card, debit card, or other accepted payment card that you register on your Account, you authorize CML to confirm that such credit card is in good standing with the issuer, which may include submitting a request for a payment authorization and/or a low dollar amount credit to your card in accordance with the applicable card network rules.
You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of your Account password and for all activities that occur on or through your Account, and you agree to immediately notify CML if you suspect any unauthorized use of your Account or access to your password. CML shall not be responsible for any losses arising out of the unauthorized use of your Account.
Further, you are responsible for providing and maintaining current, truthful, complete, and accurate information for your Account for so long as you continue to use the Service. CML, in evaluating from time-to-time your registration, Account, and eligibility to continue using the Service, may require you to provide additional information. CML reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to reject, suspend or terminate your Account (with or without notice), except as otherwise required by Applicable Laws (as defined below).
Processing Payments for the Service and Taxi rides
When you hail, book, hire, arrange, and/or pay for a Taxi ride via the Service, you are deemed to have accepted the service provided by CML through the Service and agree to pay the corresponding fees or charges (see Service Fees, below). Upon requesting a Taxi ride via the Service, we may pre-authorize one of the payment cards you have associated with your account in an amount that provides reasonable assurance of your ability to pay the fare and related fees or charges for the requested Taxi ride. When you enter a Taxi and direct the Taxi driver or operator to a destination, you are deemed to have accepted such third-party transportation services and agree to pay the corresponding fare and related fees or charges (e.g., tolls, sales tax, regulatory surcharges, etc.). Such amounts (and applicable Services Fees) will be charged to one of the payment cards you have associated with your account, and you hereby authorize any such charge. Any payments made in connection with the Taxi rides you hire, book, arrange, and/or pay for through the Service are non-refundable by CML; however, you may have additional refund or charge-back rights under the card agreement with your card issuer. You should consult the terms and conditions governing your payment card for more information.
Your Use of the Service
Your use of the Service is for your sole personal use. The Service is limited to facilitating hailing, booking, and hiring of, and payments for, Taxi rides in certain locations in the United States, and may not be used to send cash advances, cash equivalents, or otherwise transfer money between you and a third party.
By accessing or using the Service, you agree to use the Service (including, without limitation, all features and functionalities associated therewith, any Channel, and software associated therewith) in accordance with these Terms of Service and all applicable laws, statutes, rules, and regulations (“Applicable Laws”). In addition, you agree that you will: (1) use the Service only for lawful purposes; (2) not upload, post, email, or otherwise send or transmit any material that contains software viruses or any other computer code, files, or programs designed to interrupt, destroy, or limit the functionality of the Service or any computer software or hardware or telecommunications equipment associated with the Service; (3) not impersonate any person or entity or otherwise misrepresent your affiliation with any person or entity, including, without limitation, any person or entity affiliated with the Service; (4) not interfere with the servers or networks connected to any portions of the Service, or violate any of the procedures, policies, or regulations of networks connected to the Service; and (5) not impair or harm the Service (including, without limitation, any Channel) in any way whatsoever.
Communications from CML
You agree and consent to receive electronically all communications, agreements, documents, notices, statements, and disclosures (collectively, “Communications”) that CML provides in connection with your Account and your use of the Service. Communications will be delivered by (a) posting a notice or message through the Channels; or (b) sending electronic mail to the email address associated with your Account. All Communications will be considered received by you within 24 hours of the time such Communication is posted to any Channel or emailed to you. You also agree that your electronic signature on any agreements or documents in connection with the Service has the same effect as a physical signature.
Service Fee. For each Taxi ride that you originate via the Service by making a request for ground transportation via the Service, you may be charged a base service fee. For any base service fee assessed in accordance with this paragraph, you agree to pay such amount to CML and authorize CML to charge such amount to a payment card associated with your Account.
Reservation Fee. Through the Service, you may have the option of scheduling a Taxi ride ahead of time (a “Scheduled Booking”). For each Scheduled Booking that results in a Taxi Ride, you may be charged an additional reservation fee. For any reservation fee assessed in accordance with this paragraph, you agree to pay such amount to CML and authorize CML to charge such amount to a payment card associated with your Account. For the avoidance of doubt, a reservation fee is not applicable to a request immediate ground transportation. Further, you acknowledge and agree that a Scheduled Booking is not guaranteed to result in a Taxi ride and that CML makes no representation or warranty that a third-party provider of ground transportation will be willing or available to provide you with ground transportation services at the time of your Scheduled Booking.
Cancellation Fee. If, after requesting a Taxi via the Service, you cancel that request after such request has been accepted by a Taxi operator, or, after making a Scheduled Booking, you cancel the Scheduled Booking less than sixty (60) minutes before the scheduled pick-up time, then you may be charged a cancellation fee. For any cancellation fee assessed in accordance with this paragraph, you agree to pay such amount to CML and authorize CML to charge such amount to a payment card associated with your Account.
No-Show Fee. If you request a Taxi via the Service and do not cancel such request, the Taxi operator that has accepted the request for ground transportation will wait at the designated pickup location for at least four (4) minutes. If you make a Scheduled Booking and do not cancel such Scheduled Booking, the Taxi operator that has accepted your request for ground transportation will arrive at the appointed pickup location within five (5) minutes of the scheduled pickup time and wait at least eight (8) minutes after the scheduled pickup time. If you fail to board the Taxi and hire it prior to the expiration of the applicable wait time, then you may be charged a no-show fee. For any no-show fee assessed in accordance with this paragraph, you agree to pay such amount to CML and authorize CML to charge such amount to a payment card associated with your Account.

These advertisements, offers, and/or promotions may be personalized and targeted based on, among other things, your usage of the Service.
You agree that CML is not responsible for the content of these advertisements, offers, or promotions (“Advertising Content”), and any activity (including the purchase of goods and/or services), as well as the accompanying terms and conditions, arising therefrom is strictly between you and the applicable third party.

THE FOREGOING LIMITATIONS WILL APPLY EVEN IF THE REMAINING REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
You agree to indemnify and hold the CML Indemnitees harmless from any and all Losses (as defined below) incurred by any of them, and defend them against any claim, arising out of or in connection with: (i) your use of the Service, (ii) any violation or breach by you of these Terms of Service, or any failure by you to comply with Applicable Laws, (iii) any dispute or litigation caused by your acts or omissions, (iv) any data, information or other content submitted by you, (v) the use of your Account, whether by your or a third party, (vi) any Transportation Disputes (as defined below), and (vii) the commission of any Prohibited Acts.

If, in breach of this provision, you attempt to do so, you will be liable for all Losses incurred by the CML Indemnitees in connection therewith.
IF YOU ARE A CALIFORNIA RESIDENT, YOU HEREBY EXPRESSLY WAIVE CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE 1542, WHICH STATES: “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF NOT KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.”
These Terms of Service shall for all purposes be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of New York as those laws are applied to contracts entered into and to be performed entirely in New York by New York residents, without giving effect to any choice-of-law provision or rule (whether of New York or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction.
The parties to these Terms of Service shall use all reasonable efforts to resolve any disputes, controversies, or differences arising out of or in connection with these Terms of Service or the Service amicably, including the use of a mutually agreeable, non-binding mediation procedure. Any such disputes, controversies, or differences that are not settled by mutual agreement or mediation shall be finally and exclusively settled by confidential arbitration held in New York, New York or the metropolitan area in which the relevant use of the Service occurred, and conducted by JAMS under its Streamlined Arbitration Rules. If $100,000 or less is at issue in the arbitration petition and/or response, then such arbitration shall be by one (1) independent arbitrator selected jointly by you and CML or appointed by JAMS, and that arbitrator shall not have the power to issue an award in excess of $100,000. If more than $100,000 is at issue in the arbitration petition and/or response, then such arbitration shall be by three (3) independent arbitrators, one chosen by you, one chosen by CML, and the third chosen by the two arbitrators selected by the parties or appointed by JAMS. Once appointed pursuant to either procedure, the arbitrator or arbitral tribunal may order provisional or conservatory measures (including injunctive relief) at the request of a party and may embody such order in any final award. Nothing in the foregoing precludes, restricts or is intended to preclude or restrict the right of either party to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in an appropriate court of competent jurisdiction. English shall be the official language of the arbitration proceedings. Neither CML nor you will be entitled to join or consolidate claims in arbitration by or against other individuals or entities, or arbitrate any claim as a representative member of a class or in a private attorney general capacity. Accordingly, any JAMS Class Actions Procedures do not and shall not apply to any arbitration between or among you, CML and/or any CML Indemnitees. The arbitrator or arbitral tribunal shall make a decision that is in accordance with these Terms of Service, shall apply the law of the State of New York, without regard to its conflicts of laws principles, and shall state the basis for any decision in writing. Judgment upon the award rendered may be entered in any court having jurisdiction or application may be made to such court for judicial acceptance of the award and an order of enforcement as the case may be.
Waiver of Right to Jury Trial
