Terms and Conditions

Jump In Rides (Pty) Ltd (hereinafter referred to as “Jumpin Rides”) provides, subject to the conditions enclosed below, a platform for registered Users to upload ride details for matching, posting of Ride Offers and requests, as well as replying to Ride Offers and requests. The service offered by Jumpin Rides will include its website and any other service that will be offered from time to time, such as a Jumpin Rides mobile application. The terms of this Agreement as well as the Jumpin Rides Privacy Policy, which is legally binding, is set forth in the terms for use of our website. Both can be found on our website: http://www.jumpinrides.co.za/. By accessing and using the Jumpin Rides services, you agree to comply with this agreement. If not, please do not use this service.

1. The Jumpin Rides Website

1.1. Services Offered

1.1.1. Jumpin Rides has developed a carpooling platform accessible on a website at the address http://www.jumpinrides.co.za/, and designed to connect Drivers with empty seats to Passengers looking for lifts going the same way, in order to enable them to share the Trip and therefore the associated costs. When the User logs in with Facebook, he/she recognises having read and accepted all these general conditions of use. Results of potential matches are listed in order of relevance with the research criteria: departure destination, arrival destination and the date. On receipt of results of potential matches, the registered User will gain access to contact information of the common User (Driver or Passenger) through his/her post (offer or request). Details that will be shared include a description of the ride, a contact number, and an email address. Registered Users will be responsible for all arrangements concerning the potential ride following the match.

1.1.2. Jumpin Rides provides a communication platform for registered Users to create their own ride, based on their specific requirements – be it offering a ride or looking for one. As a result, Jumpin Rides cannot guarantee the safety and comfort, or the success of travelling arrangements made amongst Users. Jumpin Rides is not a registered public transporter, does not manage a rideshare system for its own account, or on behalf of its clients/registered Users, nor does it guarantee the roadworthiness of registered Users' vehicles, or the driving skills of registered Users (Driver who will be responsible for the journey).

1.1.3. It is the sole responsibility of registered Users to inform their insurance company should they participate in any rideshare arrangement.

1.2. Registration on the Platform, Creation & Verification of an Account

1.2.1. Conditions of registration on the Platform The Platform may be used by individuals aged 18 or over. Registration on the platform by a minor is strictly prohibited. In accessing, using, or registering on the Platform, you represent and warrant that you are aged 18 or over.

1.2.2. Creation of an Account The platform enables Users to post and view Ride Offers and to interact with each other to book a seat.

To create your Account, you can:

(i) either complete all mandatory fields on the registration form;

(ii) or log in to your Facebook Account via our platform. The User understands that Jumpin Rides will have access to, will publish on the Platform, and will keep certain information from your Facebook Account, namely: your public profile, your email address, the number of friends you have, and the number of your friends who are also registered on Jumpin Rides.

To register on the platform, you must have read and accepted these T&Cs and the Privacy Policy. When creating your Account, you agree to provide accurate and true information, and to update it through your profile or by notifying Jumpin Rides, in order to guarantee its relevance and accuracy throughout your contractual relations with Jumpin Rides.

You alone are responsible for the use of your Account by third parties, unless you have expressly notified Jumpin Rides of the loss, the fraudulent use by a third party, or the disclosure of your Account to a third party.

You agree not to create or use, under your own identity or that of a third party, Accounts other than that initially created.

1.2.3. Verifications

Jumpin Rides may, for the purposes of transparency, improving trust, or prevention or detection of fraud, set up a system for verification of some of the information you provide on your profile. This is notably the case when you enter your telephone number, email address, or provide us with an identity document.

You recognise and accept that any reference on the Platform or the Services to “verified” information, or any similar term, means only that a Member has successfully passed the verification procedure existing on the Platform or the Services in order to provide you with more information about the Member with whom you are considering travelling. Jumpin Rides cannot guarantee the truthfulness, reliability, or validity of the information subject of the verification procedure.

1.3. Booking a Seat

Jumpin Rides has set up an online booking system. When a Passenger is interested in a Ride Offer, he may make an online booking request. This booking request is accepted manually by the Driver. At the time of the booking, the Passenger receives a booking confirmation.

If you are a Driver and have chosen to manually handle the bookings requests when posting your Ride Offer, you are required to respond to any booking request before the due date of the ride. Otherwise, the booking request will expire automatically.

At the time of the booking confirmation, you will have access to the telephone number of the Driver (if you are the Passenger) or of the Passenger (if you are the Driver). You are then solely responsible for executing the contract binding you to the other Users.

Please note that any use of the service, in the capacity of Passenger or Driver, relates to a specific name. The Driver and the Passenger must correspond to the identity communicated to Jumpin Rides and the other Users participating in the Trip.

However, Jumpin Rides allows its Users to book one or more seats on behalf of a third party. In this case, you undertake to accurately indicate to the Driver, at the time of the booking, the forenames, age, and telephone number of the person on whose behalf you are reserving a seat. It is strictly prohibited to book a seat for a minor under the age of 13 travelling alone. In the case where you are reserving a seat for a minor over the age of 13 travelling alone, you undertake to request the prior agreement of the Driver and to provide him with duly completed and signed permission of his/her legal representatives.

In addition, the platform is intended for the booking of seats for individuals. It is prohibited to book a seat for transporting any object, package, animal travelling alone, or material items whatsoever.

Furthermore, it is prohibited to publish a Ride Offer for a Driver other than you.

1.4. Payment

At the end of each trip, passenger(s) will pay the driver in cash.

The Cost Contribution is determined by the Driver, under his/her sole responsibility. It is strictly prohibited to profit in any way from using our Platform.
