Terms and conditions of use
Last updated March 15th, 2023
IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS, PLEASE DO NOT CONNECT TO, ACCESS, DOWNLOAD OR USE THE SERVICE IN ANY WAY.
By agreeing to the terms and conditions, you must submit information that is true and as accurate as possible. The submission of any information through the Service that is false or fraudulent is strictly prohibited.
You consent to receive communications from us electronically. We may communicate with you in a variety of ways, such as by email or within the application via push notifications. You may revoke your consent to any of these communication channels at any time.
1. Company Service
For the optimal provision of the Service it is necessary that the user gives access to the GPS signal in order to determine his route and to the storage device for the operation of the map and the possibility to report using images obtained with the camera of the mobile device. Some features of the Service may not be provided without this technology.
The Company provides users with a mobile application and web platform to improve the quality of public transportation service. This includes providing the user with information on bus arrival times, online maps, service routes, bus stops and information from reports provided by other users, all in order to help the user make better route decisions.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Arrival time information such as the position of the buses on the routes is provided by a third party and the Company is not responsible for the downtime of that service. You accept and agree that the Company shall not be liable directly or indirectly for any damage or loss which this may cause or may claim to cause you in any connection with the use of this service.
2. User Account
You may choose to create an account on the mobile application using your social media account such as Facebook or Google. The creation of a user account is not required for use of the Service, except for the use of certain features that require it, in which case it will be specified.
You will be solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your user account. You agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account. You will be required to create a password for your social network account (Facebook or Google), and if you have reason to believe that your social network account and therefore your account on the mobile application is no longer secure, then you must immediately notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. Children’s Information
The Company wishes to avoid collecting information from persons under the age of 18. If parents or other legal guardians believe that children under their supervision should not use the Mobile App with a user, we ask that they send a request to our contact email to have this information removed and not allow access to the system for that user going forward, only allowing use of the application in anonymous mode.
