Tripiamo Terms of Service
Effective Date: March 14, 2023
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF SERVICE CAREFULLY. THIS IS A LEGAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN TRIPIAMO AND YOU, WHICH GOVERNS YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES. YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES CONSTITUTES YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF AND AGREEMENT TO ALL OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS IN THESE TERMS OF SERVICE AND YOUR REPRESENTATION THAT YOU ARE AN INDIVIDUAL WHO CAN FORM LEGALLY BINDING CONTRACTS UNDER APPLICABLE LAW.
Your Use of the Platform
The Platform provides road, public transit, and general travel educational material that delivers information and advice to users (“Authorized User” or “you” or “your”, whether you are a one-time purchaser, one-time accessor, or a business account or subscriber) about safety and expense minimization for travelers. The Platform connects Authorized Users with educational service content that is selected from the Platform (collectively, the "Services"). Each Authorized User is solely responsible for selecting the Services to be provided. Any decision by an Authorized User to receive Services is a decision made in such person's sole discretion. We make no representations or warranties whatsoever with respect to the Services, whether for use in public, private, or offline interactions, or about the accreditation, registration or licensing you might seek based on the Services. You are responsible for your own road, public transit and general travel safety and associated expenses of any kind, including property repair and medical expenses. We are not responsible for your traffic violations or resulting fines. You understand that we do not routinely update the Services. We do not assume any responsibility for the accuracy or reliability of this information or any information provided on or through the Platform.
Your Authorized Users Use of the Platform
Tripiamo grants to the Authorized User a worldwide, non-exclusive, and non-transferrable right to use Services. Furthermore, you, only as a business account or business subscriber, may sell (you determine the sale price) the Services to other Authorized User(s) to the extent provided in this Agreement. You will open a profile to manage the subscription and information necessary to help provide access to Authorized Users. If you purchase the Services on behalf of others (e.g., business or gifting accounts), then you will not have direct access to the Services. We will provide to you the necessary instructions and credentials for your Authorized User(s) to access the Services. The total number of Authorized Users will not exceed the number set forth in your account.
Except as provided above, you shall not at any time, directly or indirectly, permit any Authorized Users to: (i) copy, modify, or create derivative works of the Services, in whole or in part; (ii) rent, lease, lend, re-sell, license, sublicense, assign, distribute, publish, transfer, or otherwise make available the Services; (iii) reverse engineer, disassemble, decompile, decode, adapt, or otherwise attempt to derive or gain access to any software component of the Services, in whole or in part; (iv) remove any proprietary notices from the Services; or (v) use the Services in any manner or for any purpose that infringes, misappropriates, or otherwise violates any intellectual property right or other right of any person, or that violates any applicable law.
You are responsible and liable for all uses of the Services resulting from access provided by you, directly or indirectly, whether such access or use is permitted by or in violation of this Agreement. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you are responsible for all acts and omissions of your Authorized Users, and any act or omission by an Authorized User that would constitute a breach of this Agreement, and will be deemed a breach of this Agreement by you.
You shall use reasonable efforts to make all Authorized Users aware of this Agreement’s provisions as applicable to such Authorized User’s use of the Services, and shall cause Authorized Users to comply with such provisions.
If we discover that you have underpaid us with respect the number of Authorized Users, then you shall promptly pay the amounts necessary to rectify such underpayment, together with interest.
Term of Agreement
Unless earlier terminated as provided in this Agreement, the term of this Agreement is one (1) year from our receipt of your initial payment for the Services. Depending on your purchase, the term of this Agreement shall automatically renew for successive one (1)-year renewal term(s) unless either party delivers to the other party written notice of its intention not to renew this Agreement at least thirty (30) days prior to the last day of the initial term or any subsequent renewal term, as the case may be. In the case of business accounts subscribers, we may auto-enroll the Authorized Users without the need to allow the end user to opt-in to our terms.
Payment for Services
During the term of this Agreement, you shall pay us for the Services in the amounts provided on the Platform, based on your purchase. We provide three different payment methods:
(1) A reoccurring annual subscription basis where the payment amount will be automatically debited on the anniversary of the first payment on the payment method provided at the time of subscription. You must provide us with a valid credit card or ACH payment as a condition of using the Services. The first payment shall be made in order to start the Services. You authorize us to charge your payment method each year for the full amount of your annual bill. No split checks or partial payments are permitted. If payment method is declined and payment has not been received by the 15th of the month, then a $25.00 late fee may be charged on the new payment method.
(2) A one-time, upfront, and in-full basis for the full one-year term. You shall make such payments to us prior to the start of the Services. We accept payment via credit or debit card, check, ACH, or wire transfer.
(3) In the case of business account subscribers, we will issue invoices from the start date of the Services, based on your purchase. Payment is due to us within 30 days of invoice.
By providing any payment information through us, you represent, warrant, and covenant that: (1) you are legally authorized to provide such information to us; (2) you are legally authorized to perform payments from the debit or credit card account(s) or any other payment type used; and (3) such action does not violate the terms and conditions applicable to your use of such payment method account(s) or applicable law.
When you authorize a payment method account via our Platform or with Tripiamo, you represent, warrant, and covenant that there are sufficient funds or credit available to complete a payment using payment method.
You authorize us to charge your payment method account for the full amount of your bill. You may only pay the full amount of the bill; no split checks or partial payments are permitted.
All payments made to us are non-refundable, except in the event we cancel the Services. Fees are exclusive of all taxes, levies, or duties imposed by taxing authorities, and you are responsible for payment of all such taxes, levies or duties. Any amounts not paid when due will bear interest at the rate of one- and one-half percent (1.5%) per month, or the maximum legal rate if less. If any fee cannot be charged to your payment method for any reason, we may provide you, via email, notice of such non-payment and a link for you to update your payment information.
You agree to immediately notify us of any change in your payment method used for payment hereunder. We may change the pricing for the Services (from time to time in our sole discretion) by updating the price list included on the Platform and without any additional notice to you, provided that any changes will not affect any Services purchased prior to the notice.
We will use reasonable attempts to fix processing errors. Your failure to notify us of a processing error within thirty (30) days of when it first appears on your electronic transaction history may be deemed a waiver of any right to amounts owed to you.
By creating an account on the Platform (an "Account"), you (and your Authorized Users if applicable) are granted a limited, personal, non-transferable, non-sub licensable, non-exclusive, and revocable right to use the Services provided by us subject to the restrictions set forth in these Terms of Service.
In registering for an Account, you agree to provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Services' registration process and as requested from time to time by us (such information, "Registration Data"). You further agree that, in providing such Registration Data, you will not knowingly omit or misrepresent any material facts or information and that you will promptly enter corrected or updated Registration Data via the Services, or otherwise advise us promptly in writing of any changes or updates to your Registration Data. You further consent and authorize us to verify your Registration Data as required for your use of and access to the Services. We reserve the right to suspend or terminate the Account of anyone who provides inaccurate, untrue, or incomplete information, or who fails to comply with the account registration requirements.
You agree to maintain your Account solely for your own use or by your Authorized Users. You agree that you will not allow another person to use your Account IDs to access or use the Services under any circumstances except to the extent provided in this Agreement. You are solely and entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Account IDs and for any charges, damages, liabilities or losses incurred as a result of your failure to do so. We are not liable for any harm caused by or related to the theft of your Account IDs, your disclosure of your Account IDs, or your authorization to allow another person to access or use the Services using your Account IDs. Furthermore, you are solely and entirely responsible for any and all activities that occur under your Account, including any charges incurred relating to the Services. You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your Account or your Authorized Users or any other breach of security known to you. You acknowledge that the complete privacy of your data and messages transmitted while using the Services cannot be guaranteed.

We have no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third-party platforms. In addition, we will not and cannot censor or edit the content of any third-party site.

Any termination of this Agreement does not relieve you of any obligations to pay any refunds, charges, cancellations fees or other fees or costs accrued prior to the termination and any other amounts owed under this Agreement.
We are not liable for any losses relating to fraudulent charges, or other actions by any User that are deceptive, fraudulent or otherwise invalid ("Fraudulent Actions").
