Your access and use of the vehicles and Services (collectively, “Services”) on KINTO constitutes your agreement to be bound by these Terms as a Driver. This establishes a contractual relationship between us and you as a Driver. As a Driver, you are considered a client and not an employee, contractor, sub-contractor, or special employee of the vehicle owner or KINTO. Furthermore, you are determined to not have any employment status of any kind with the vehicle owner or its affiliates, partners, agents or vendors, nor that of KINTO, or any of KINTO's partners, agents or vendors. If you do not agree to these Terms, you may not access or use the Services, as updated from time to time in accordance with the Amendments section below. 

  

Services. 

The Services constitute use of us or our affiliates’, partners’, or licensors’ vehicles, as well as the following “Applications”: accessories, telematics, safety, security or other technology platforms, and web or mobile applications which enable users to arrange, schedule and rent transportation and/or logistics services, gain access to vehicles, and operate them. 

  

Reservations. 

Drivers may reserve the Services via KINTO’s reservation system. Reservations will be made on an as-available, first-come basis, and we do not guarantee the availability of the Services at any particular time. The length of each term of use of the Services will be agreed to on a per drive basis via our reservation system. We reserve the right to change or cancel the Services at any time with or without notice. Reservations may be made no earlier than seven days in advance. We may set time limits to a continuous reservation of our Service, regardless of vehicle availability in the reservation system. 

  

License. 

Subject to your compliance with these Terms, we grant you a limited, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, revocable, non-transferable license to: (i) access and use vehicles; (ii) access and use the Applications on your personal device solely in connection with your use of the Services; and (iii) access and use any content, information and related materials that may be made available to you through the Services by us, in each case solely for your use in conjunction with ride sharing, ride hailing, delivery, personal use, or any other service approved by us. Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved by us or our affiliates, partners, or licensors. This license is restricted to the state in which the vehicles are stationed.  

  

Authorized Drivers. 

Only you may drive your vehicle during your reservation. 

  

Ownership. 

The Services, underlying assets, and all rights therein are and shall remain Company property or the property of our licensors. Neither these Terms nor your use of the Services convey or grant to you any rights: (i) in or related to the Services except for the limited license granted above; or (ii) to use or reference in any manner our names, logos, product and service names, trademarks or services marks or those of our licensors. 

  

User Accounts. 

In order to use most aspects of the Services, you must be registered for and maintain an active personal user account ("Account"). You must be at least 21 years of age to obtain an Account. Account registration may require you to submit to us or to our administrative partners certain personal information, such as your name, address, mobile phone number, date of birth, and copy of your valid driver license, as well as at least one valid payment method (such as a credit card from an accepted payment partner). You agree to maintain accurate, complete, and up-to-date information in your Account. Your failure to maintain accurate, complete, and up-to-date Account information, including having an invalid or expired payment method on file, may result in your inability to access and use the Services or our termination of this Agreement with you. You are responsible for all activity that occurs under your Account, and you agree to maintain the security and secrecy of your Account username and password at all times. Unless otherwise permitted by us in writing, you may only possess one Account. 

  

Billing & Payment. 

When you make a reservation in our reservation system for hourly rental, KINTO or its administrative partner will authorize your payment card by placing a hold on the funds for an amount equal to the estimated price for use of the Services. Upon completion of your reservation, we will take payment for the actual services rendered, which may differ from the estimated price.  When you make a reservation in our reservation system for weekly rental, KINTO or its administrative partner will authorize your payment card by charging the full rental amount plus taxes at time of reservation.  KINTO accepts payment via credit or debit card. Prepaid cards are not accepted. You will receive an invoice and confirmation of your payment electronically via the KINTO mobile app. You are responsible for ensuring your ability to pay the actual amount due. 

  

Hourly reservation billing starts at the earlier of scheduled or actual start time. Hourly reservation billing ends at the later of i) when the vehicle is returned to its assigned location and the reservation is ended, ii) two hours before the scheduled end of the reservation, or iii) two hours after start time.  A reservation that is made and never activated will be billed for the full reservation unless the Driver cancels it. 

  

Application fees are non-refundable in all cases, regardless of the outcome of an applicant's background check.  

  

Pricing Structure. 

Pricing for access to KINTO’s Services includes the costs of maintenance and insurance. For plan details please see the KINTO website at kinto-us.com or offer to you. We reserve the right to amend rates, rate structures, terms and credits at any time.

Approved on-demand services include Amazon Flex, Caviar, DoorDash, HopSkipDrive, Instacart, Lyft, Postmates, Grubhub/Seamless, Uber/UberEats, and Via. You must first receive written approval from us before operating on a service other than those listed in this paragraph. 

  

Driver’s License. 

Drivers must carry a valid driver’s license and insurance card during every trip. An individualized insurance card for each vehicle is provided to you upon sign-up, and these copies should be stored digitally in the case of a vehicle issue. Driving eligibility is conditional on your possession of a valid driver’s license. If your license is suspended, withdrawn, or expired, for any reason, your right to drive a vehicle expires immediately. You must immediately inform us of any suspension, withdrawal, or expiration of your driver’s license. Drivers must report any changes in contact information (e.g. addresses or phone numbers) to us immediately. 

  

Insurance. 

We require owners of vehicles on KINTO to provide liability insurance, which covers damages up to $30,000 in bodily injury per person, $60,000 bodily injury each accident, and $25,000 property damage each accident in the event of an at-fault accident. This insurance does not cover the cost of your own medical expenses in the event of an accident – to ensure you are covered in the event of this situation, please consult your personal medical policy and/or personal auto insurance policy. 

  

We expect you to drive and treat the vehicles with the utmost care. We reserve the right to suspend your driving privileges and access to the vehicles if we determine, in our sole discretion, that you are not taking appropriate care when driving vehicles on the KINTO service or using other Company assets. 

  

In instances where you are operating the vehicle illegally (suspended license, under the influence, etc.), in a manner not allowed by these Terms of Service, or with negligence, you will bear the full cost of damage to vehicles on the KINTO service as well as any damage to third parties not covered by the vehicle’s insurance policy. 

  

If you are involved in an incident with a vehicle, a damage fee of up to $1,000 may apply. A damage fee may apply, but is not limited to, dents, scratches, collisions, flat tires, windshield cracks, dead batteries, engine problems, vandalism, theft, other Company or partner property, third party damages and, in some cases, third party personal injuries. In the event of a collision or other incident where additional investigation is required, we will charge the Driver $1,000 at the start of the investigation process. At that time, the Driver’s account will be temporarily disabled pending investigation. Once the investigation is complete, the Driver will be reinstated at our sole discretion. If the cost of repair is less than $1,000, the Driver will be refunded any remaining balance from the damage fee. 

In cases of theft or loss, a Driver may be held responsible for the entire cost of recovery or replacement. Drivers are not responsible for normal wear and tear on the vehicle. 

  

Before each reservation, we ask you to check the car inside and out and report any damage to us. This ensures that you will not be held responsible for damage that may have happened before your reservation. 

  

Restrictions. 

  • Smoking is prohibited in all vehicles. 

  • Due to allergies and sanitary concerns, pets with the exception of service animals are only allowed in locked pet carriers while in the vehicles. 

  

Vehicles on the KINTO service may not be used:

Checking Your Car Before Departure. 

Before using a KINTO vehicle, you are required to check the vehicle for any mechanical or physical defects. If you notice damage, you must report it by emailing us at support@kinto-us.com before the start of your reservation. When reporting damage to us, please be sure to note the assigned vehicle number. If you forget to notify us and the next driver reports the damage, we may hold you financially responsible for the damage. You must also check to make sure that the following items are present in the vehicle and inform us if any of them are missing: 

  

  • Insurance and registration 

  • Operator’s manual 

  • Emergency service information 

  • Garage Pass (if applicable) 

  

You may not drive if the insurance or registration are missing! (Please note: if a vehicle is newly acquired, its registration may be affixed to the windshield.) 

  

Car Care. 

Our operations partners regularly clean and maintain all of its vehicles. Drivers are expected to return a vehicle in the same condition they found it. Here are the main categories for which drivers are responsible: 

  • Fuel: Drivers are responsible for fueling the car while in use and returning the vehicle at the level you started with. We will make every effort to ensure the vehicle is at full fuel at the start of every reservation, however if the vehicle is not at  full fuel level at the start of your reservation, please contact customer support. Any fraudulent credit request will be grounds for dismissal from our Services and be grounds for us to take legal action against the fraudulent party. 

  • Cleanliness: Drivers must maintain a clean vehicle during use and return the vehicle as clean as they found it. 

  

Returning the vehicle. 

You must properly return your vehicle to its assigned location by the end of your reservation period. Proper return means that: 

  • The interior of the vehicle, including the rear where your passengers have been, is clean and you have taken all of your personal belongings. 

  • Please ensure that the gasoline tank is full. If a Driver does not return a vehicle with full fuel, a fee will apply. 

  • You have notified KINTO staff of any new damage to the vehicle. 

  • The vehicle’s windows are rolled up tightly, all of the vehicle’s documentation is in the glove box, the vehicle is entirely contained within its reserved parking spot and properly locked. If a vehicle or other Company or partner property are not properly secured, a fee will apply. 

  • The vehicle’s reservation is terminated via the Driver’s mobile application. If the vehicle is not returned by the end of your shift and we have not received communication from you sufficiently explaining the situation, we will consider the vehicle stolen and may take action to recover the vehicle and any balance due. 

  

Please perform all of the above steps even if another driver is waiting for the vehicle. It is your responsibility to ensure the safe return of the vehicle. You are not allowed to return the vehicle to a location other than its assigned location without permission of KINTO staff. If you fail to return the vehicle by your drop-off time as stated in your reservation, and you have not contacted us, we reserve the right to call or text your listed phone number. If you fail to return the vehicle to its assigned location, you may be charged for the total costs of recovering the vehicle, including but not limited to labor and towing costs. If you cannot be contacted, the vehicle may be reported to the police as missing and you will be charged all associated fees.

KINTO offers 24-hour emergency assistance for situations requiring immediate attention. Please contact us immediately in the following situations: 

  • You show up for your reservation and the vehicle is not in its assigned location.

4. THIRD PARTY CREDENTIALS.

In order for us to provide the Services (outlined in our Terms of Service) to you, we may ask that you (i) provide us with log-in credentials to one or more sharing economy services (each a “Provider”) accounts so that we can access and use your Provider account information as described in this Policy. In order for us to provide the Services (outlined in our Terms of Service) to you, you may choose to voluntarily provide us with log-in credentials to one or more sharing economy services (each a “Provider”) accounts. If you provide us with log-in credentials to access any of your Provider accounts, you agree that we can use such log-in credentials to access your Provider account and to use your Provider account information as described in this Policy. Such credentials will be encrypted and stored in secure servers, but may be subject to unauthorized access and use despite our use of reasonable security measures as no security measures are 100% effective.

To provide you with the Services, we will use the login credentials you provide us to review the information available through your Provider accounts relating to activities and transactions with that Provider. By way of example only, this information may include the number of miles driven over a given time, the amount of payments received from the Provider per task, or the number of times you worked with that Provider over a given period. We may use this information to come up with meaningful analysis of this data, such as the average amount of money earned per trip for the Provider or which times engaging for the Provider gives you the most payment, all in order to provide Services as outlined in our Terms of Service, to generally improve upon KINTO’s services, or, solely on an aggregate basis with other users’ data, for sale or license to third parties of data analytics relating to activities with respect to users of Provider accounts. Upon any termination of the Services, your data will be deleted or retained as described in Section “Data Policies” in the Terms of Service.
