You must agree to and accept all of the Terms, or you do not have the right to use the Services.
Your using the Services in any way means that you agree to be bound by all of these Terms.
These Terms include the provisions below, as well as those in the
We are constantly improving our Services, and in doing so, these Terms may need to change along with the
Services. We reserve the right to change the Terms at any time, effective upon your acceptance of the new Terms.
If you don’t agree with the new Terms, you are free to reject them; unfortunately, that means you will no longer be
able to use the Services. If you use the Services in any way after a change to the Terms, it means you agree to be
bound by all such changes to the Terms and such changes will supersede any prior Terms or other agreements with you.

Scoop does not provide transportation services, and Scoop is not a transportation carrier or a transportation network company.
Scoop offers information and a method to connect drivers and riders with each other, but does not, and does not intend, to provide
transportation services or act in any manner as a transportation carrier. It is the user’s decision, in his or her sole discretion
and sole risk, whether to offer or accept a ride after being matched with another user through the Scoop services. Scoop has no
responsibility or liability for any transportation services voluntarily provided by any Rider or Driver using Scoop.
Scoop partners with certain enterprise organizations, governmental entities, business parks and other organizations
(our “Affiliated Partners
”) to encourage use of the Services among their employees, contractors
and other personnel.
If your account is associated with Scoop through an Affiliated Partner (such as your employer), then, by using the Services,
you acknowledge and agree to the following:
Your usage is strictly voluntary and does not in any way imply that you are acting in the course and scope of your
employment, nor does it establish an employer-employee or agency relationship with Scoop or its Affiliated Partners;
- Time spent as a Rider or Driver is not compensable time;
Scoop’s Affiliated Partners will not play any role in determining the amount of any Reimbursements;
Any issues, concerns or disputes between Riders, Drivers, and/or the wider public are not employment
disputes subject to investigation or resolution by Affiliated Partners and should be addressed between
the relevant parties;
Scoop and its Affiliated Partners are not responsible or liable for any injury, illness, death, damage,
destruction of property, or other loss resulting from usage of the Services;
You assume and accept any and all risk of injury, illness, death, damage, destruction of property, or
other loss associated with the Services;
Affiliated Partners are not responsible for ensuring the quality or safety of Scoop users, or for ensuring
that Drivers’ vehicles are roadworthy or sufficiently insured; and
- You will not be covered by workers’ compensation for any resulting injuries or damages.
SCOOP DOES NOT GUARANTEE THE SUITABILITY, SAFETY, ELIGIBILITY, OR ABILITY OF DRIVERS OR RIDERS. AS A USER OF SCOOP, IT IS SOLELY
YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO DETERMINE IF A DRIVER OR RIDER WILL MEET YOUR NEEDS AND EXPECTATIONS. SCOOP IS NOT OBLIGATED TO PARTICIPATE IN
DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND ANY OTHER USER OF SCOOP. BY USING THE SERVICES, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU MAY BE EXPOSED TO SITUATIONS INVOLVING
DRIVERS OR RIDERS THAT ARE POTENTIALLY UNSAFE, OFFENSIVE, HARMFUL TO MINORS, OR OTHERWISE OBJECTIONABLE, AND THAT PARTICIPATION WITH
DRIVERS OR RIDERS ARRANGED OR SCHEDULED USING THE SERVICES IS SOLELY AT YOUR OWN RISK AND JUDGMENT. YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE AND
BEAR ALL RISKS RELATED TO TRAVELLING WITH THE INDIVIDUALS MATCHED WITH YOU IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICES. SCOOP SHALL NOT HAVE ANY
LIABILITY, RESPONSIBILITY, OR OBLIGATION ARISING FROM OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES, TRANSACTIONS OR RELATIONSHIPS
WITH DRIVERS OR RIDERS, AND/OR ANY RIDES OR TRIPS YOU TAKE IN CONNECTION WITH SCOOP’S SERVICES.

are under no obligation to be responsible for or to become involved in such disputes.

You hereby release, waive, and forever discharge Scoop, its Affiliated Partners, and their officers, directors,
employees, agents, suppliers, and successors from claims, demands, and damages of every kind or nature, known or unknown,

other users or third parties and/or our damages, injury, death, destruction of property or other losses resulting from
your use of the Services, including actions, claims, or demands resulting in whole or in part from the negligence or
gross negligence of Scoop, any Affiliated Partner, or their officers, directors, employees, agents, suppliers, and
If you are a California resident, you shall and hereby do waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says:

time of executing the release, which, if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor."

royalty-free, perpetual, sublicensable, irrevocable, and worldwide license to display, perform, distribute, modify,
reproduce and otherwise act with respect to such User Submissions, in each case to enable us to operate the Services

You may have heard of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the “DMCA”), as it relates to online service providers,
like Scoop, being asked to remove material that allegedly violates someone’s copyright. We respect others’ intellectual
property rights, and we reserve the right to delete or disable Content alleged to be infringing, and to terminate the
accounts of repeat alleged infringers.
Any information or content publicly posted or privately transmitted through the Services is the sole responsibility of the
person from whom such content originated, and you access all such information and content at your own risk, and we aren’t
liable for any errors or omissions in that information or content or for any damages or loss you might suffer in connection
with it. We cannot control and have no duty to take any action regarding how you may interpret and use the Content or what
actions you may take as a result of having been exposed to the Content, and you hereby release us from all liability for you
having acquired or not acquired Content through the Services.
We can’t guarantee the identity of any users with whom you interact in using the Services and Scoop is not responsible for
which people gain access to the Services.
You are solely responsible for all information and Content you contribute, in any manner, to the Services, and you represent
and warrant you have all rights necessary to do so, in the manner in which you contribute it. You will keep all your registration
information accurate and current. You are responsible for all activity associated with your account in connection with the Services.
The Services may contain links or connections to third party websites or services that are not owned or controlled by Scoop.
When you access or use third party websites or services, you accept that there are risks in doing so, and that Scoop is not responsible
for such risks. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our Services and to read the terms and conditions and privacy
policy of each third party website or service that you visit or utilize.
For some of our Services, we use Google’s Maps API(s); by using such Services, you agree to be bound by
Google’s Terms of Service available here
Scoop has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, accuracy, privacy policies, or practices of or
opinions expressed in any third party websites or by any third party that you interact with through the Services. In addition,
Scoop will not and cannot monitor, verify, censor or edit the content of any third party site or service. By using the
Services, you release and hold us harmless from any and all liability arising from your use of any third party website or
Your interactions with organizations and/or individuals found on or through the Services, including payment and delivery of
goods or services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such dealings, are solely
between you and such organizations and/or individuals. You should make whatever investigation you feel necessary or
appropriate before proceeding with any online or offline transaction with any of these third parties. You agree that Scoop
shall not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any sort incurred as the result of any such dealings.
We’re always trying to improve the Services, so they may change over time. Scoop reserves the right to modify, suspend, or
discontinue any part of the Services, impose limits on certain features, or restrict access to parts or all of the Services.
You agree that Scoop will not be liable to you for any modification, suspension, or discontinuation of part or all of the
Services. Similarly, we reserve the right to remove any Content from the Services at any time, for any reason (including,
but not limited to, if someone alleges you contributed that Content in violation of these Terms), in our sole discretion,
and without notice.
You understand and agree that use of the Services as a Rider will generally require you to pay a reimbursement of a portion
of the costs incurred by a Driver as determined by Scoop (“Reimbursement”). You agree that you will remit such Reimbursement
solely and directly to Scoop, not to a Driver. You further agree that you shall not give a Driver an amount in excess of
the Reimbursement. After you have received services obtained through your use of the Service, Scoop will facilitate payment
of the applicable Reimbursement on behalf of the Driver, as such Driver’s limited Reimbursement agent, using the preferred
payment method designated in your account. Reimbursements paid by you are final and non refundable, unless otherwise determined
by Scoop. Riders are not liable to Drivers if Scoop fails to remit your settled Reimbursement to the Driver.
If you are a serving as a Driver, you authorize Scoop to receive funds from the Rider on your behalf for payment to you and for
Scoop to act as your agent with respect to collection and settlement of Reimbursements. Payment of the Reimbursement in such a
manner should be considered by the Driver and the Rider the same as a Reimbursement made directly by the Rider to the Driver.
All Reimbursements are due immediately and payment will be facilitated by Scoop using the preferred payment method designated in
your account. If your primary account payment method is determined to be expired, invalid or otherwise not able to be charged,
you agree that Scoop may use a secondary payment method in your account, if available, or recoup payment by some other means.
In order to facilitate an ease of use with the Services, Scoop may apply your money you accrue in your Scoop account for Driver
Reimbursements or promotions (your “Scoop Balance”) towards any charges associated with your account, such as Reimbursement you
owe as a Rider or cancellation charges you may accrue. Subject to our then current minimum “cash out” amount, you may elect to
reduce your Scoop Balance in exchange for money to be deposited into a qualifying bank account designated by you. You acknowledge
and agree that Scoop may combine your Scoop Balance with other Scoop Balances, and no interest shall accrue to you from any such
balances. If your account is inactive for twelve months or longer, we may deposit your Scoop Balance in to the account designated
Scoop reserves the right to establish, remove and/or revise Reimbursements for any or all aspects of the Services at any time in
Scoop’s sole discretion. Scoop also reserves the right to freeze your Scoop Balance, withhold credits or other payments, suspend
or terminate your account, and Scoop will be entitled to a refund of credits or payments earned via Scoop in the event that Scoop
determines or believes that you have engaged in fraudulent activity when using the Services.
From time to time, such as during account registration, Scoop offers promotional “carpool credits.” These credits have no
monetary value and are subject to expiration. You agree that Scoop’s promotional offers and discounts to other users have
no bearing on your use of the Services unless also made directly available to you.
as well as the licenses above, to understand how we treat information you provide to us after you have stopped using our
Services. If you cancel a request to use the Services, you may still be charged for all or a portion of a Reimbursement
and/or a separate cancellation fee.
Scoop is also free to terminate (or suspend access to) your use of the Services or your account without notice, for any
reason in our discretion, including your breach of these Terms, fraud, abuse of the Services or any promotions, or any
violation of law as determined by the sole judgement of Scoop. Scoop has the sole right to decide whether you are in violation
of any of the restrictions set forth in these Terms or applicable law. To the extent permitted by law, we may seek to recover
from you any funds, offset your Scoop Balance, or cancel any carpool credits that you may have obtained while in violation of
these Terms or applicable law.
Account deactivation may result in destruction of any Content associated with your account, so keep that in mind before you
decide to deactivate your account.
Provisions that, by their nature, should survive termination of these Terms shall survive termination. By way of example,
all of the following will survive termination: any obligation you have to pay us or indemnify us, any limitations on our
liability, any terms regarding ownership or intellectual property rights, and terms regarding disputes between us.
These Terms apply to your use of all the Services, including the iPhone applications available via the Apple, Inc.
(“Apple”) App Store (the “Application”), but the following additional terms also apply to the Application:

Apple is not responsible for the Application or the Content;

You will only use the Application in connection with an Apple device that you own or control;
You acknowledge and agree that Apple has no obligation whatsoever to furnish any maintenance and support services

You acknowledge and agree that Scoop, and not Apple, is responsible for addressing any claims you or any third party

You represent and warrant that you are not located in a country subject to a U.S. Government embargo, or that has been
designated by the U.S. Government as a “terrorist supporting” country, and that you are not listed on any U.S.
Government list of prohibited or restricted parties;
Both you and Scoop acknowledge and agree that, in your use of the Application, you will comply with any applicable
third party terms of agreement which may affect or be affected by such use; and
Both you and Scoop acknowledge and agree that Apple and Apple’s subsidiaries are third party beneficiaries of these
Terms, and that upon your acceptance of these Terms, Apple will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted
the right) to enforce these Terms against you as the third party beneficiary hereof.

services or products offered or purchased through the Services. Products and services purchased or offered (whether or not following
such recommendations and suggestions) through the Services are provided “AS IS” and without any warranty of any kind from
Scoop or others (unless, with respect to such others only, provided expressly and unambiguously in writing by a designated
third party for a specific product). THE SERVICES AND CONTENT ARE PROVIDED BY SCOOP (AND ITS LICENSORS AND SUPPLIERS) ON AN
“AS-IS” BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, IMPLIED WARRANTIES

ERROR-FREE. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
Limitation of Liability.
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT ALLOWED BY APPLICABLE LAW, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY
(INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, TORT, CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, INDEMNITY OR OTHERWISE) SHALL SCOOP OR ITS AFFILIATED
PARTNERS (OR ITS OR THEIR LICENSORS OR SUPPLIERS) BE LIABLE TO YOU OR TO ANY OTHER PERSON FOR (A) ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL,
INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF GOODWILL, WORK STOPPAGE,
ACCURACY OF RESULTS, OR COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, OR (B) ANY AMOUNT, IN THE AGGREGATE, IN EXCESS OF THE GREATER OF
(I) $100 OR (II) THE AMOUNTS PAID BY YOU TO SCOOP IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICES IN THE TWELVE (12) MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING
ANY APPLICABLE CLAIM, OR (C) ANY MATTER BEYOND OUR REASONABLE CONTROL. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION
OF CERTAIN DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION AND EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
To the fullest extent allowed by applicable law, you agree to indemnify, defend, and hold Scoop, its
Affiliated Partners, and its and their affiliates, officers, directors, agents, employees, harmless from and against any and
all claims, liabilities, damages (actual and consequential), losses and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) arising from or
in any way related to any claims relating to (a) your use of the Services (including any actions taken by a third party using
your account), and (b) violation of applicable law or these Terms by you. In the event of such a claim, suit, or action
(“Claim”), we will attempt to provide notice of the Claim to the contact information we have for your account (provided that
Scoop’s failure to deliver such notice shall not eliminate or reduce your indemnification obligations hereunder).
Scoop reserves the right, at your expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter for which you are required
to indemnify us, and you agree to cooperate with our defense of these Claims. In the event Scoop agrees that you may assume the defense
of the matter, you agree not to settle any matter without the prior written consent of Scoop.
You may not assign, delegate or transfer these Terms or your rights or obligations hereunder, or your
Services account, in any way (by operation of law or otherwise) without Scoop’s prior written consent. We may transfer,
assign, or delegate these Terms and our rights and obligations without your consent. Any assignment attempt in violation of
the Agreement shall be null and void.
Choice of Law; Arbitration.
These Terms are governed by and will be construed under the laws of the State of
California, without regard to the conflicts of laws provisions thereof. Any dispute arising from or relating to the subject
matter of these Terms shall be finally settled in San Francisco County, California, in English, in accordance with the
Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures of Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services, Inc. ("JAMS") then in effect,
by one commercial arbitrator with substantial experience in resolving intellectual property and commercial contract disputes,

rendered by such arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Notwithstanding the foregoing obligation
to arbitrate disputes, each party shall have the right to pursue injunctive or other equitable relief at any time, from any
court of competent jurisdiction. For all purposes of this Agreement, the parties consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue

You and Scoop agree that these Terms are the complete and exclusive statement of the
mutual understanding between you and Scoop, and that they supersede and cancel all previous written and oral agreements,
communications and other understandings relating to the subject matter of the Terms. The failure of Scoop to exercise, in
any way, any right herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any rights hereunder. If any provision of these Terms is found to
be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated, to the minimum extent necessary, so that these
Terms shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.
