These terms and conditions ("User Terms") apply to your visit to and your use of our website at www.apnacabs.com (the "Website"), the Service and the Application (as defined below), as well as to all information, recommendations and/or services provided to you on or through the Website, the Service and the Application.
PLEASE READ THESE USER TERMS CAREFULLY BEFORE DOWNLOADING OUR APPLICATION AND/OR USING OUR SERVICE.

APNACABS
Your contracting partner is (Company Name), a private limited liability company established in the India, having its registered office at VTM-2, Office No-09, Mehra Ind. Compound, A.K Road, Near Vijay Prints, Sakinaka, Andheri East, Mumbai – 400072 ("APNACABS").

WHAT SERVICES DOES APNACABS PROVIDE?
APNACABS offers information and a means to obtain transportation services offered by third party transportation providers, drivers or vehicle operators (the"Transportation Provider"), which may be requested through the use of an application supplied by APNACABS and downloaded and installed by you on your single mobile device (smart phone) (the "Application"). All services provided by APNACABS to you by means of your use of the Application are hereafter referred to as the "Service".

HOW IS A CONTRACT CONCLUDED BETWEEN APNACABS AND YOU?
By using the Application or the Service, you enter into a contract with APNACABS (the"Contract"). In order to be able to use the Application or Service, you first need to sign up with APNACABS. When signing up, you are obligated to provide APNACABS with your personal information, and mobile telephone number. Upon successful completion of your signing up with APNACABS, APNACABS will provide you with a personal account, accessible for you with a password of your choice.
You have to be 18 years of age or older to use the Service or Application. If you reside in a jurisdiction that restricts the use of the Service or Application because of age, or restricts the ability to enter into contracts such as this one due to age, you must abide by such age limits and you must not use the Service and the Application. You represent that if you are an individual, you are of legal age to enter into a binding contract, or that if you are registering on behalf of a legal entity, that you are authorized to enter into, and bind the entity to, these User Terms and register for the Service and the Application.

HOW TO USE THE SERVICE AND THE APPLICATION?
The Application allows you to send a request for transportation service to a Transportation Provider. The GPS receiver - which should be installed on the mobile device (smart phone) on which you have downloaded the Application - detects your location and sends your location information to the relevant Transportation Provider. The Transportation Provider has sole and complete discretion to accept or reject each request for transportation service. The Transportation Provider also has sole and complete discretion over whether to use the Application to receive the leads generated through the Application. If the Transportation Provider accepts a request, the Application notifies you and provides information regarding the Transportation
Provider - including its name, vehicle registration number, and customer service rating - and the ability to contact the Transportation Provider by telephone. The Application also allows you to view the Transportation Provider's progress towards the pick-up point, in real time.
APNACABS shall procure reasonable efforts to bring you into contact with a Transportation Provider in order to obtain transportation services, subject to the availability of Transportation Providers in or around your location at the moment of your request for transportation services.
For the avoidance of doubt: APNACABS itself does not provide transportation services, and APNACABS is not a transportation carrier. It is up to the Transportation Provider to offer transportation services, which may be requested through the use of the Application and/or the Service. APNACABS only acts as intermediary between you and the Transportation Provider. The provision of the transportation services by the Transportation Provider to you is therefore subject to the agreement (to be) entered into between you and the Transportation Provider. APNACABS shall never be a party to such agreement. When you request for a transportation service through the use of the Application and/or the Service, it is deemed that you agree that the Transportation
Provider may display advertisements, of third parties, inside and/or on the outer body of the vehicle.

YOUR USE OF THE APPLICATION OR THE SERVICE
You warrant that the information you provide to APNACABS is accurate and complete. APNACABS is entitled at all times to verify the information that you have provided and to refuse the Service or use of the Application without providing reasons.
You may only access the Service using authorized means. It is your responsibility to check to ensure you download the correct Application for your device. APNACABS is not liable if you do not have a compatible mobile device or if you download the wrong version of the Application for your mobile device. APNACABS reserves the right to terminate the Service and the use of the Application should you be using the Service or Application with an incompatible or unauthorized device.
By using the Application or the Service, you further agree that:
  • You will only use the Service or download the Application for your sole, personal use and will not resell it to a third party;
  • You will not authorize others to use your account;
  • You will not assign or otherwise transfer your account to any other person or legal entity;
  • You will not use an account that is subject to any rights of a person other than you without appropriate authorization;
  • You will not use the Service or Application for unlawful purposes, including but not limited to sending or storing any unlawful material or for fraudulent purposes;

  • You will provide us with whatever proof of identity we may reasonably request;
  • You will only use an access point or 3G data account which you are authorized to use;
  • You are aware that when requesting transportation services by SMS (if available in your jurisdiction), standard messaging charges will apply;
  • You will not use the Service or Application with an incompatible or unauthorized device;
  • You will comply with all applicable law of the state and/or city in which you are present while using the Application or Service.
APNACABS reserves the right to immediately terminate the Service and the use of the Application should you not comply with any of the above rules.

PAYMENT
The use of the Application and the Service is free of charge. APNACABS reserves the right to introduce a fee for the use of the Application and/or the Service. If APNACABS decides to introduce such a fee, APNACABS shall inform you accordingly and allow you to either continue or terminate the Contract.
The rates that apply for the transportation services by the Transportation Provider can be found on the Website and through the Application. These may be modified or updated by APNACABS from time to time. It is your own responsibility to remain informed about the current rates for the transportation services.
APNACABS shall charge you for the transportation services provided to you by the Transportation Provider on behalf of the Transportation Provider. You agree that you will pay for all transportation services you purchase from the Transportation Provider, and that APNACABS may charge your credit card account, as provided by you when registering for the Service for the transportation services (including any taxes and late fees, as applicable) that may be accrued by or in connection with your account. You are responsible for the timely payment of all fees and for providing APNACABS with a valid credit card account or maintaining sufficient funds in APNACASH, or by using a third-party payment processor as permitted by APNACABS, for payment of all fees at all times. Any payment made is non-refundable.
APNACABS may also use a third-party payment processor (the "Payment Processor") to facilitate your payment to the Application and Service. The processing of payments or credits, as applicable, in connection with your use of the Application and Service will be subject to the terms, conditions and privacy policies of the Payment Processor and your credit card issuer in addition to these User Terms.
