Terms of use

Here is everything you need to know about using Cogo. If there is anything you cant find or wonder about we are just an email away.

These Terms & Conditions (“Terms”) are a legal contract between you and Cogo ApS (“Cogo”, “the Company”, “the Service”, “We” or “Us”). The Cogo mobile application (“Cogo”, “Cogo App”), is managed by Cogo ApS, CVR 41261560, Sprogøvej 17 4mf, ℅ Eriksson, 2000 Frederiksberg, Denmark .  These terms govern (I) Users that install and use the Cogo mobile application (the “app”), (II) Users that visit the website www.cogoapp.io ; (III) Users that use and access the Cogo Services provided through or enabled by the app (the “services”).


 

1. CONSENT

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. 


 

2. DEFINITIONS

“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 Cogo ApS.

 

“Cogo 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 Cogo app, the Cogo website and/or uses Cogo’s Services.

 

“Operator” means the company, other than Cogo, 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 Cogo, it is important that you as a user understand our role in providing this Services. Cogo is a shared mobility aggregator that find and display the best 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. Cogo is fully independent and must therefore not be confused with the Mobility Operators that provide and operate the mobility 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 Cogo and the Mobility Operators.

 

Reservations / Bookings

When you find a shared Mobility Solution that suits you, you may book directly in the Cogo 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 Cogo. For some Mobility Operators, the User is enabled to login and register a User account through Cogo, and also to buy and pay for Mobility Solutions. Only in the event of specific agreements with Providers will Cogo distribute certain Mobility Services. 

 

Third-party payments

If you are able to purchase third party goods or services through the App, we are acting as a broker to refer you to the seller of those goods or provider of those services. In some cases we may process payments or aggregate services or usage of those services to provide you with additional benefits. We do not act as agent for either you or that third party, and instead you contract directly with the third party. Your purchase of the goods or services will be subject to separate contracts and terms of use in addition to these Terms. Any disputes or legal claims for problems or damages arising from or related to these third-party contracts, goods, or services, or any third-party websites or apps which are used in the process must be addressed exclusively to those third parties.

 

User account

For the purposes of booking the Mobility Services and for the use of the additional features described above, the User grants Cogo ApS 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 Cogo account. If you do so, you are responsible for the completeness and that your data and information is accurate and up to date. You are also responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Cogo 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 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.

 

Service availability

Our ability to deliver all the functionality of our Services requires a stable data connection and access to locational services like GPS. If your phone’s ability to access data via wireless networks (like 3G or 4G) 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 Cogo, 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 Cogo, 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.
