    2 PAYMENT AND FEES.

     

    2.1 Fees. Rider may use the Vehicle on a pay per ride basis or as otherwise in accordance with the pricing described in the app. In each case, fees and other charges may be subject to applicable taxes and other local government charges, which may be charged and collected by Bird. Bird will charge the Rider’s credit, debit card or other agreed payment methods the amount of the fees as described in this Agreement.

     

    2.2 Promo Codes. Promo codes (discounts) are one-time offers and can only be redeemed via Bird App. Bird reserves the right to modify or cancel discounts at any time.

    2.3 Maximum Rental Time and Charges. Maximum rental time is 24 hours. Rider agrees that Rider will deactivate the Vehicle rental within 24 hours of time that rental of the Vehicle began. Rider may then rent again. Rider agrees that he/she is solely responsible for being aware of any elapsed time related to the timely locking the Vehicle. The maximum day charge is $100 and is based on a calendar day. After return of the Vehicle, the rider will be charged the accumulated rental charges, or the maximum day charge; whichever is less. Vehicles not returned (locked and a ride concluded) within 48 hours will be considered lost or stolen, and Rider may be charged up to $500 and a police report may be filed. Bird may also charge a service fee of $25 for rentals in excess of 24 hours where the Vehicle is not lost or stolen.

     

    2.4 Valid Credit Card or Debit Card. Rider must input a valid credit or debit card number and expiration date before Rider will be registered to use the Service. Rider represents and warrants to Bird that Rider is authorized to use any cards Rider furnishes to Bird. Rider authorizes Bird to charge the card for all fees incurred by Rider. All fees are subject to applicable sales taxes and other local government charges, which may be charged and collected by Bird. If Rider disputes any charge on credit or debit card account, then Rider must contact Bird within 10 business days from the end of the month with the disputed charge, provide to Bird all trip information that is necessary to identify the disputed charge, such as the date of the trip and the approximate starting and ending times. Rider agrees to immediately inform Bird of all changes relating to the card.

     

    2.6 Pick Up Fees. If You are unable to return a Vehicle to a valid area (i.e. You deactivate the Vehicle on private property, a locked community, or another unreachable area), and request that the Vehicle be picked up by Bird staff, Bird, at its sole discretion, may choose to charge You a pick-up fee up to $120. 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 (currently $120.00) to recover the Vehicle. Fees are subject to change.

     

    3 RELEASES; DISCLAIMERS; LIMITATION OF LIABILITY; ASSUMPTION OF RISK.

In exchange for Rider being allowed to use any of the Services, Vehicles, and other equipment or related information provided by Bird, Rider (acting for Rider and for all of Rider’s family, heirs, agents, affiliates, representatives, successors, and assigns) (collectively, the “Releasing Parties” and each a “Releasing Party”) do hereby fully and forever release and discharge all Released Persons for all Claims that Rider ever had, now has, or may claim to have against any Released Person. Such releases are intended to be general and complete releases of all Claims. The Released Persons may plead such releases as a complete and sufficient defense to any Claim, as intended third party beneficiaries of such releases.

     

    Rider expressly agrees to indemnify, release and hold harmless Released Persons from all liability for any such property loss or damage, personal injury or loss of life, whether caused by the sole or partial negligence of Bird and/or the negligence of others, whether based upon breach of contract, breach of warranty, active or passive negligence or any other legal theory, in consideration for using and/or operating the Vehicle. 

     

    Releasing Party hereby acknowledges that he/she has been advised by legal counsel, is familiar with and fully understands the provisions of California Civil Code Section 1542 which provides as follows: “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.” Having been so advised, Releasing Party nevertheless elects to and does assume all risks for Claims known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, heretofore arising from the subject of this Section 3, and specifically waives any rights it may have under Section 1542, as well as under any other statute or common-law principle in any jurisdiction with a similar effect.

    3.4 Assumption of Risk by Rider. Rider is solely and fully responsible for the safe operation of the Vehicle at all times. Rider agrees that Vehicles are machines that may malfunction, even if the Vehicle is properly maintained, and that such malfunction may cause injury. Rider agrees that riding a Vehicle and the Services involve many obvious and not-so-obvious risks, dangers, and hazards, which may result in injury or death to Rider or others, as well as damage to property, and that such risks, dangers, and hazards cannot always be predicted or avoided.

Rider agrees that if Rider’s use of any of the Services causes any injury or damage to another person or property, then Rider may be liable for all resulting injuries, damages, and related costs. By choosing to ride a Vehicle, Rider assumes full and complete responsibility for all related risks, dangers, and hazards, and Rider agrees that Bird and all other Released Persons are not responsible for any injury, damage, or cost caused by Rider with respect to any person or property, including the Vehicle itself.

You will indemnify and hold the Released Persons harmless from all losses, suits, claims or other proceedings arising out of or relating to Your use of Vehicles and any breach of the terms of this Agreement; provided, however, that Released Persons must notify You as soon as practicable after the date notice of such loss, suit, claim or other proceeding is served on Released Persons directly (as opposed to service on a statutory agent for service of process) or otherwise brought to the attention of Released Persons.

     

    4 Additional Terms of Use.

     

    4.1 Safety Check. Before each use of a Vehicle, Rider shall conduct a basic safety inspection of the Vehicle, which includes inspecting the following: (i) trueness of the wheels; (ii) safe operation of all brakes and lights; (iv) good condition of the frame; (v) sufficient battery charge power; and (vi) any sign of damage, unusual or excessive wear, or other mechanical problem or maintenance need. Rider agrees not to ride the Vehicle if there are any noticeable issues, and to immediately notify customer service to alert Bird of any problems.

     

    4.2 Lost or Stolen Vehicle. A Vehicle may be deemed lost or stolen if (a) Vehicle is not returned within 24 consecutive hours, (b) Vehicle’s GPS unit is disabled, (c) Vehicle is parked on private property, in a locked area, or in any other non-public space for more than ten minutes after a ride ends, (d) Vehicle moves more than thirty feet after a rental has ended and Bird believes such movement was not caused by another Rider or authorized third party, or (d) other facts and circumstances that suggest to Bird in its reasonable, good faith determination that a Vehicle has been lost or stolen. Bird and You agree that the last Rider of a Vehicle shall be responsible for a lost or stolen Vehicle unless facts and circumstances suggest otherwise to Bird in its reasonable, good faith determination. If Bird deems a Vehicle lost or stolen, Bird shall have the authority to take any and all actions it deems appropriate (with respect to the last Rider of a Vehicle or otherwise), including (without limitation) obtaining restitution and other appropriate compensation and damages and filing a police report with local authorities. The data generated by the Service’s computer is conclusive evidence of the period of use of a Vehicle by a Rider. Rider must report Vehicle disappearance or theft to Bird immediately or as soon as possible.

     

    4.3 Helmets; Safety. Bird recommends that all Riders wear a Snell, CPSC, ANSI or ASTM approved helmet that has been properly sized, fitted and fastened according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Rider agrees that none of Bird and its Released Parties are liable for any injury suffered by Rider while using the Service, whether or not Rider is wearing a helmet at the time of injury. Rider may need to take additional safety measures or precautions not specifically addressed in this Agreement.

     

    4.4 Vehicle Routes. Rider agrees that Bird does not provide or maintain places to ride Vehicles, and that Bird does not guarantee that there will always be a safe place to ride a Vehicle. Roads, sidewalks, Vehicle lanes, and Vehicle routes may become dangerous due to weather, traffic, or other hazards.

     

    4.5 Limitations on Vehicle Rental. Rider agrees that Bird is not a common carrier. Alternative means of public and private transportation are available to the general public and to Rider individually, including public buses and rail service, taxis, and pedestrian paths. Bird provides Vehicles only as a convenience, and such rental availability is intended to be used only by those persons who are able and qualified to operate a Vehicle on their own and who have agreed to all terms and conditions of this Agreement.

     

    4.6 Limitations on Availability of Service. Bird makes every effort to provide the Service 365 days per year, but does not guarantee that the Service will be available at all times, as force majeure events or other circumstances might prevent Bird from providing the Service. Access to the Service is also conditioned on the availability of Vehicles. Bird does not represent or warrant the availability of any Service or the availability of any Vehicle at any time. Rider agrees that Bird may require Rider to return a Vehicle at any time.

     

    5 Term and Termination.

     

    5.1 Term. The term of this Agreement begins when Rider first uses the Service, and the term ends 10 years after Rider’s last use of the Service; provided, however, that Rider’s personal financial responsibility under this Agreement expires one year after the Rider’s last use of the Service.

     

    5.2 Termination by Bird. At any time and from time to time, and without Rider’s consent, Bird may unilaterally terminate Rider’s right to use the Service, in Bird’s sole discretion and without any notice or cause. Rider may terminate Rider’s use of the Service at any time; provided, however, that (i) no refund will be provided by Bird, (ii) the term of this Agreement continues in accordance with this Agreement, (iii) Rider may still be charged any applicable additional fees in accordance with this Agreement.

In addition, Bird may disclose individual data to a third party upon Rider’s express permission and consent (e.g. enrollment in a study).

     

    7. License to Image and Likeness. For good and valuable consideration, the receipt and adequacy of which are hereby acknowledged, You do hereby knowingly, voluntarily, and irrevocably: (1) give Your full and unconditional consent to Bird and its affiliates, successors, and assigns to use at any time and from time to time, without any restriction, Your appearance and voice in photographs, videos, and other recordings related to Your use of the Services, on all websites and for all press, promotional, advertising, publicity, and other commercial purposes, including all formats and media, whether now known or hereafter devised, throughout the world and in perpetuity; (2) grant to Bird and its affiliates, successors, and assigns (a) the right to photograph, videotape, and otherwise record Your appearance and voice related to Your use of the Services, at any time and from time to time, (b) all rights, copyrights, title, and interests in the results of such photographs, videos, and other recordings, as a work for hire for copyright purposes, and (c) the right to use, reproduce, exhibit, distribute, transmit, alter, and exploit, at any time and from time to time and as Bird may decide in its sole discretion, such photographs, videos, and other recordings, or any component thereof, and all related merchandising, promotions, advertising, and publicity; and (3) waive, release, and discharge all Released Persons from all Claims that You have or may have for any libel, defamation, invasion of privacy, right of publicity, infringement of copyright, or violation of any right granted by You in this paragraph.
