Test Riding Vehicles

If you take a vehicle for a test ride, your test ride period begins when you receive an unlock code from King.

If you take a vehicle for a test ride, you must return it to the exact location where you picked it up, and lock it to the same rack. You must also use the Mobile App to explicitly end the session. You may be charged for additional rental periods if you don’t end the test ride session.

You must immediately inform King if you have problems testing or returning a vehicle. If you don’t do this, King may charge you the full purchase price of the vehicle.

You must be able to tell King where you left the vehicle at the end of your test ride. 

If you don’t return the vehicle, provide false information or don’t return the bicycle correctly and the vehicle cannot be located within 6 hours, King will charge you the sale price of the vehicle.

Theft or Accident

If the bicycle is stolen during a test ride you must report the theft immediately to King and to the police, and you must promptly provide the police department’s file number to King. King may charge you the purchase price of the vehicle at its discretion.

If you are involved in an accident during a test ride that results in injury or damage to you, the vehicle, any third party or their property, you must report the accident to both the police and King immediately and you must promptly provide the police department’s file number to King. 

Conditions for Sellers

If you are a seller you must be able to prove you are the lawful owner of the vehicle, as determined in King’s sole discretion.

If the seller does not remove the vehicle within 5 days following King’s notice date, King may remove the vehicle, put it in storage and dispose of it at King’s discretion. King will not be liable for vehicles so disposed of.

Conditions for Buyers 

If you are a test rider or prospective buyer, it is your responsibility to make sure you understand how the vehicle works before you start riding. 

It is also your responsibility to check that the vehicle is in a roadworthy and safe condition before you test ride it or purchase it (in particular screw and component fixings, frame condition, tire pressure, brake system, lights). 

If you find technical defects or damage to a vehicle at any time, you should immediately find a safe place to stop, lock up the vehicle and contact King support.

You will be liable for the repair and/or replacement cost of the vehicle if your actions result in loss or damage to it, as determined in King’s discretion. If you take a vehicle for a test ride, you are liable for it and any associated damages from the moment of receiving the lock code until you successfully return it as described above.

You may switch to a different Payment Method or update your information by visiting the “Account” page or by contacting us by email at support@kingmicromobility.com. You agree to pay all fees and charges incurred in connection with your use of the Service.

If you are a test rider or a buyer, King will charge you a test ride fees when you take a vehicle for a test ride (if applicable), and the purchase price of a vehicle you wish to buy.

To ensure proper payment, you are solely responsible for providing and maintaining accurate contact and payment information associated with your account, which may include required tax information for certain owners whose annual payments will exceed $600, or as otherwise required by applicable law. If we believe that we are obligated to obtain tax information and you do not provide this information to us after we have requested it, we may withhold your payments until you provide this information or otherwise satisfy us that you are not a person or entity from whom we are required to obtain tax information. Any bank fees related to undeliverable payments may be deducted from the newly issued payment. You agree to pay all applicable taxes or charges imposed by any government entity in connection with your participation in the Service.

Applicable Laws

This Service is controlled by King from its offices within the United States of America. King makes no representation that the Service is appropriate or available for use in other locations, and access to them from territories where their content or use is illegal is prohibited. Those who choose to access this Service from locations outside of the United States do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws. Any action related to the Service, the Content or the Terms shall be governed by the laws of Virginia and controlling U.S. federal law, without regard to conflicts of laws thereof. You and King agree that any claim arising out of or related to these Terms will be resolved by mandatory, binding arbitration by a single arbitrator under the auspices of JAMS, in Virginia, with the parties sharing equally the costs of arbitration. Arbitration will proceed according to JAMS’ Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures and in accordance with the Expedited Procedures in those rules. The foregoing does not limit either party’s right to provisional or ancillary remedies from a court of competent jurisdiction before, after or during the pendency of any arbitration, and the exercise of any such remedy does not waive either party’s right to arbitration. 

To the full extent permitted by law you agree: (1) not to join arbitration with any other party; (2) not to bring any claim or seek resolution of any dispute on a class-action basis or to utilize class-action procedures; and (3) not to bring any claim or seek resolution of any dispute in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons. You specifically waive any purported rights to the contrary.

Judgment on an arbitration award may be entered by any court with competent jurisdiction. If any party brings a claim or action against another for relief, declaratory or otherwise, arising out of these Terms, the prevailing party shall recover against the other party, in addition to all fees, costs and disbursements, such sum as the court or arbitrator may determine to be reasonable attorneys’ fees. 

Except to the extent prohibited by applicable law, the parties agree that any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Service or the Terms must be filed within one year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. The Sections entitled User Conduct, Dealings with Third Party Service Providers and Advertisers, Proprietary Rights, Disclaimer of Warranties and Liability, Indemnification, Applicable Laws and General shall survive termination of your account and/or the Terms.

General

You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment or agency relationship exists between you and King as a result of the Terms or your use of the Service. The Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and King with respect to your use of the Service. 

The failure of King to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the Terms remain in full force and effect. 

You may not assign, delegate or otherwise transfer your account or your obligations under these Terms without the prior written consent of King. King has the right, in its sole discretion, to transfer or assign all or any part of its rights under these Terms and will have the right to delegate or use third party contractors to fulfill its duties and obligations under these Terms and in connection with the Service. 

King’s notice to you via email, regular mail or notices or links on the Service shall constitute acceptable notice to you under the Terms. A printed version of the Terms and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to the Terms to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. 

Section titles and headings in the Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. 

Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved. 

Amendment of Terms

King may amend these Terms from time to time by posting an amended version at its website and sending you written notice thereof. Such amendment will be deemed accepted and become effective 30 days after such notice (the “Proposed Amendment Date”). However, if you have an active transaction pending on the Service and give King written notice of rejection of the amendment prior to the Proposed Amendment Date, these Terms will continue under their original provisions and the amendment will become effective when that transaction closes or is withdrawn from the Service. If you have not prepaid for a time-based membership and object to any such changes, your sole recourse shall be to discontinue use of the Service. Your continued use of the Service following the Proposed Amendment Date will constitute your acceptance of such changes.
