These Terms & Conditions (“Terms”) are a legal contract between you and Cogo ApS (“Cogo”, “the Company”, “the Service”, “We” or “Us”). The Escoot mobile application (“Escoot”, “Escoot App”), is managed by Cogo ApS, CVR 41261560, Nørregade 28D, 1165 København K, Denmark . These terms govern (I) Users that install and use the Escoot mobile application (the “app”), (II) Users that visit the www.escoot.bike, www.escoot.io website; (III) Users that use and access the Escoot Services provided through or enabled by the app (the “services”).
By using the Company’s Services you, the user, acknowledge these Terms and the limitations of liability as well as disclaimers of warranties, and other terms which affect your legal rights. If you do not agree with these terms, or if you lack capacity or authority to agree to these terms, do not install or use the app or access the services. Therefore, it is important that you read and understand the Terms before using the Services, as defined below.
“Mobility services or Services in general” means services related to the transport of people offered and supplied by the Mobility Operators independently and autonomously with regard to Escoot.
“Escoot services” means the aggregation service provided by Cogo ApS through the mobile application, as better described in Article 4, and the ancillary services connected with the various functions of the Platform, excluding the Mobility Services provided autonomously by the Mobility Operators.
“User or You” means the person accessing the Escoot app, the Escoot website and/or uses Escoot’s Services.
“Provider” means the company, other than Escoot, which provides the Mobility Services aggregated within the Platform.
“Partner” means any third party that promotes the Services through promotional campaigns which, with the consent of the specific User and in accordance with local laws and regulations, may offer the User discounts, gifts and so on.
3. SCOPE OF SERVICES
To get the most out of Escoot, it is important that you as a user understand our role in providing this Services. Escoot is a shared mobility aggregator that find and display shared mobility solutions to reach a destination by comparing all available alternatives in your close proximity (example shared electric scooters, bikes, cars, or mopeds). Our mobility aggregation service has the sole purpose of facilitating options for the User to compare and choose between the different Mobility Operators available in the surrounding area. Escoot is fully independent and must therefore not be confused with the Mobility Operators that provide and operate the vehicle fleets. Our App and Service contain material that we produce and own, such as software, text, graphics, and imagery. We do not own any of the rides that you see in the App, which is provided to us by third parties/Mobility Operators (ex. Voi, Donkey Republic, ShareNow). The User is also aware that the aggregation and functionalities of the Platform connected with the booking of the Mobility Solution do not necessarily presuppose the existence of a specific commercial agreement between Escoot and the Mobility Operators.
Reservations / Bookings
When you find a shared Mobility Solution that suits you, you may book directly in the Escoot App or you may switch to the selected Mobility Operator’s own application (the “Operator”), where you can book your vehicle sharing. To access the vehicle, however, it might be necessary to switch to the selected Mobility Operator’s application or, in the case of some Operators, to access the vehicle directly through Escoot. For some Mobility Operators, the User is enabled to login and register a User account through Escoot, and also to buy and pay for Mobility Solutions. Only in the event of specific agreements with Providers will Escoot distribute certain Mobility Services.
For the purposes of booking the Mobility Services and for the use of the additional features described above, the User grants Escoot a mandate for the fulfilment, in his name and on his behalf, of all the documentation and activities necessary for this purpose for the Mobility Operators services. In order to access certain services, you may be required to create a Escoot account. If you do so, you are responsible for completeness and that your data and information is accurate and up to date. You are also responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Escoot account, and you further agree to accept all responsibility for actions, information and activities that occur using that account.
Accuracy of Data
We do not offer guarantees concerning the correctness and completeness of data provided by third-party Mobility Operators. We do not offer guarantees on the Mobility Operators Services or Prices nor are we responsible for their content, availability, accuracy or functionality of these services, sites and resources. The point of contact for the User for questions and complaints relating to a Mobility Service and its operation is always with the Mobility Operator. You, the User, therefore assumes all risks deriving from the use of any website, service or third-party Operator accessible from our Service.
Our ability to deliver all the functionality of our Services requires a stable data connection and access to location services like GPS. If your phone’s ability to access data via wireless networks (like 3G, 4G or 5G) or the Internet is compromised, the Services may be delivered incompletely, slowly, inaccurately, or not at all. These connectivity problems can arise from many sources, ranging from physical interference to power outages to errors by telecommunication providers. Once again, your ability to effectively use the App or Services may be compromised through no fault of Escoot, and we cannot accept any responsibility for any problems or damages which might occur.
The Services also depends on your device. If your device is damaged, not compatible with the App (including updates to the App), or if you have turned off permissions on which the App relies to deliver all the functionality of the Services (such as location sharing), then your ability to effectively use the App or Services may be compromised through no fault of Escoot, and we cannot accept any responsibility for any problems or damages which might occur.
Disclaimer of Warranties
From time to time we may need to make the App or the Services unavailable in order to fix bugs, perform maintenance, install updates, or similar tasks that improve the overall service we deliver. We make every effort to do so during times that have the least impact, but we cannot accept any responsibility for problems or damages that occur because of App or Services unavailability for these reasons.
