WeRide provides an online car sharing platform that connects vehicle owners with travelers and locals seeking to book those vehicles. WeRide is accessible online at WeRideWeRide. By accessing or communicating with us or other users, you agree to comply with, and be legally bound by, the provisions of these Terms of Service (these “Terms”), whether or not you become a registered user of the Services. These Terms govern your access to and use of the Services and constitute a binding legal agreement between you and WeRide.
WeRide reserves the right, at our sole discretion, to modify the Services or to modify the Agreement, including these Terms, at any time. If we modify these Terms, we will post the modification on the Services. We will also update the “Last Revised” date at the top of these Terms. If you continue to access or use the Services after we have posted a modification or have provided you with notice of a modification, you are indicating that you agree to be bound by the modified terms. If the modified terms are not acceptable to you, your sole recourse is to stop using and accessing the Services and close your WeRide Account within 30 days. If you choose to close your WeRideAccount, the previous effective version of these Terms will apply to you, unless you use the Services during the intervening 30 day period, in which case the new version of these Terms will apply to you.
The Services are intended solely for persons who are 18 or older. Any use of the Services by anyone that does not meet these age requirements is expressly prohibited.
To access certain features of the Services, you must sign up for an account with us. You can create a WeRide Account by providing us your first and last name, email address, and creating a password or connecting through an account with a third-party site or service (including Facebook, and Google).

You must provide accurate, current, and complete information during the registration, booking, and/or listing process. You must keep your WeRide Account up to date at all times. Based on information you provide, WeRide may impose additional requirements for you to book a trip.
Where permitted, WeRide has the right, but not the obligation, to undertake screenings, checks, and engage in processes designed to (1) help verify the identities or check the backgrounds of users, including driving history and driver’s license validity and (2) verify vehicle details. WeRidedoes not endorse any vehicle, user, or a user’s background, or commit to undertake any specific screening process. WeRide may in its sole discretion use third-party services to verify the information you provide to us and to obtain additional related information and corrections where applicable, and you hereby authorize WeRide to request, receive, use, and store such information. WeRide may permit or refuse your request to book or list a vehicle in its sole and absolute discretion. WeRide may, but does not commit to, undertake efforts to ensure the safety of vehicles shared through the Services.

The fees we charge for using the Services and other cost structures will be itemized at checkout for guests. You can verify the amount for your trip at checkout before you submit your trip request. When you provide WeRide a payment method, you authorize WeRide, or third-party service providers acting on WeRide’s behalf, to store your payment credential for future use in the event you owe WeRide any money. You authorize WeRide to use stored payment credentials for balances, including for trip cost, host fees, and guest fees (e.g., late fees, security deposits, processing fees and claims costs, and related administrative fees).
WeRide and its service providers will employ all legal methods available to collect amounts due, including the engagement of collection agencies or legal counsel. The amount due, delinquent accounts or chargebacks will be charged with fees and/or charges that are incidental to the collection of delinquent accounts or chargebacks including, but not limited to, collection fees, convenience fees, and/or other third party charges
In certain jurisdictions, WeRide may enable the collection and remittance of certain taxes from or on behalf of guests or hosts, based on existing and future tax regulations, including marketplace facilitator or car sharing regulations. The amount of taxes, if any, collected and remitted by WeRide will be visible to, and separately stated, to both guests and hosts on their respective trip related documents and invoices. Where WeRide is facilitating the collection and remittance of taxes, hosts are not permitted to collect the same taxes on the Services in relation to their vehicle sharing in that jurisdiction.

Non-disparagement. The Parties agree that they will not take any action that will harm the reputation of the other Party, or which would reasonably be expected to lead to unwanted or unfavorable publicity to either of the other Party.
The following sections also apply if you book a vehicle using the Services:
As a guest, you commit that you will be a legally licensed driver and provide proof to the host or via the Services of a current, valid driver’s license. You will treat the vehicle and any applicable Extras well and will take all reasonable measures to return the vehicle and any applicable Extras on time and in essentially the same condition as received. You will not allow anyone other than a person listed in the trip details as an Approved Driver to drive the vehicle you booked.
The guest that booked the trip (“primary guest”) is financially responsible for all physical damage to or theft of a booked vehicle that occurs during a trip, plus any additional costs and fees resulting from damage of any kind to the vehicle, regardless of who is found to be at fault. This responsibility applies whether the primary guest has their own auto insurance or not.
Primary guests may be insured against damage to the booked vehicle under their own automobile policies. When you book a vehicle on WeRide, you agree that if any damage occurs to the booked vehicle during the booked trip, you will work with WeRide to make a claim for coverage under any policy of insurance that applies to the loss.
Most hosts offering a vehicle for sharing on the Services cannot offer liability insurance to you. All protection plans offered on the Services include coverage under a third-party automobile liability insurance policy.
When you book a vehicle on the Services, you must use the vehicle only for your personal use and not for any commercial purposes You may not access a vehicle until the trip start time and you must return the vehicle on time and to the correct location. You must present the host with a current, valid driver’s license. You must exercise reasonable care in your use of the vehicle. You are required at all times to operate the vehicle safely, and in compliance with all applicable laws, including without limitation, speed limits and prohibitions on impaired or distracted driving. In the event WeRide has any concern about your use of a vehicle, WeRide may terminate your trip at its discretion at any time and require the return of the vehicle, including recovering the vehicle on behalf of the host. You are required to wear seat belts during the operation of the vehicle and to require that all of your passengers wear seat belts. You are also required to meet any laws or regulations concerning child safety seats and other protections for children. You must not leave the car unlocked or with the keys unsecure (such as in the ignition). You must not engage in any prohibited uses with any vehicle you book through the Services. The prohibited uses list is not meant to be exhaustive. If you have any concerns about your planned use, please contact us. If you misuse a vehicle, you will be fully financially responsible for any related claims, loss, or damage, and your protection plan may be voided. Guests also acknowledge that using a vehicle in a prohibited manner or otherwise breaching the Agreement may lower available liability coverage to legal minimum limits, or nullify coverage, and may furthermore nullify any comprehensive or collision protection and/or protection plan where allowed by applicable law.
You understand that third parties own the vehicles and Extras offered through the Services. Each host is responsible for complying with all legal requirements (including ensuring the vehicle is registered and insured) and maintaining their vehicle(s) in safe and roadworthy condition. Please complete a visual inspection before you begin your use of the vehicle. If you find damage in your initial inspection, you should upload photos of such pre-existing damage at the start of your reservation to ensure you are not held responsible for pre-existing damage. If you find damage on your initial inspection and fail to report it, WeRide, third-party administrators, or insurance partners, may assume that the damage occurred during your reservation period.
You acknowledge that WeRide is not responsible and shall not be liable for the safety, roadworthiness, or legal status (e.g., whether the vehicle is legally registered or the subject of a stolen vehicle report) of any vehicles shared via the Services beyond our policies that require hosts to ensure their vehicles are in safe and operable condition, legally registered to be driven on public roads, not subject to a missing or stolen vehicle report, have a clean title (e.g., non-salvaged/non-branded/non-washed/non-written off), not subject to any applicable safety recalls, and otherwise satisfy our eligibility requirements.
If there has been a collision, you must also make a report to the police. You will need to use all reasonable efforts to secure evidence from any available witnesses and to provide WeRide or third-party claims administrators with a written description of the incident and any other information requested, including identity and insurance information of any parties involved in the incident. You are also required to cooperate in any loss investigation conducted by WeRide, third party claims administrators, or insurers. After an incident, you may not continue to use the vehicle unless you have the explicit permission of WeRide staff. Failure to timely report an incident or cooperate in an investigation may reduce or invalidate any protection plan received via the Services.
The following conduct may result in the reporting of the vehicle you have booked as stolen to law enforcement, possibly subjecting you and any other driver to arrest, and civil and/or criminal penalties, and the voiding of your protection plan:
The following sections also apply if you share your vehicle through the Services:
As a host, you commit that you will provide a safe and legally registered and insured vehicle, with current license plates, with a clean (non-salvage/branded/written off) title, and in good mechanical condition. You will provide such a vehicle on time but only to a guest who is listed on the Services as an Approved Driver for the trip. You commit that your listings will be complete and accurate and you will honor all representations made in your listings. You will not offer any vehicle or optional Extra that you do not yourself own or have authority to share or that may not be shared for compensation pursuant to the terms and conditions of any agreement with a third party, including, but not limited to, a lease or financing agreement.

Failure to abide by this condition may result in fines, penalties, denial of physical damage claims, removal of the vehicle from the Services, account closure, or other action, at WeRide's sole discretion.
WeRide may offer hosts the option of having photographers take photographs of their vehicles and/or hosts with their vehicles (“Images”). You alone are responsible for using the Images in connection with your WeRide listing and you agree that you will cease using the Images if they no longer accurately represent your vehicle. You agree that WeRide is the sole and exclusive owner - or exclusive licensee, as allowed by applicable law - of all right, title, and interest in all copyrights, trademark rights, and any and all other intellectual property rights, including right of publicity, worldwide, in the Images regardless of whether you include them in your listing, and you shall take no action to challenge or object to the validity of such rights or WeRide’s ownership or registration thereof. You acknowledge that WeRide may use the Images for advertising, marketing, commercial, and other business purposes in any media or platform, whether in relation to your listing or otherwise, without further notice or compensation. Further, you waive any and all rights to royalties or moral rights you may have in the Images. If you use the WeRide photography program, you agree that you will not use the Images in connection with sharing your vehicle on any platform, website, or application other than WeRide. At WeRide’s request, you will execute documents and take such further acts as WeRide may reasonably request to assist WeRide to acquire, perfect, and maintain its intellectual property rights and other legal protection in the Images.
Once a trip is booked, you must make the vehicle available or deliver the vehicle as expected by the guest. If you offer the guest the option to pick up your vehicle at a persistent specified location, you must supply the location of the vehicle accurately to WeRide and ensure that the vehicle is available at that location at the beginning of the reservation period. In order to qualify for available protection plans, you must verify that a prospective guest has a current, valid driver’s license before you provide the guest your vehicle, and ensure the driver’s license matches the name on the reservation and that the person picking up the vehicle appears to match the photograph on a facially valid driver’s license.
You will have the ability to set and revise the vehicle’s pricing as you choose. WeRideWeRide will pay you the amount collected from guests that book your vehicle, less the applicable fees payable to WeRide. A current fee schedule can be found. To the extent you owe WeRide money for any reason, WeRideWeRide also reserves the right to deduct those amounts from your payment.
Payment Processing. As a condition of WeRide enabling payment processing services, you authorize WeRide to obtain all necessary access and perform all necessary activity to facilitate sharing of your vehicle. You further agree to provide accurate and complete information about you, and authorize WeRide to share it and transaction information with for the purposes of facilitating the payment processing services provided. WeRide reserves the right to switch payment processing vendors at its discretion.
You are required to regularly check your vehicle for any defects in its operations or safety. You promise that, at all times, your vehicle will be in safe and roadworthy condition, in good mechanical condition, and in full compliance with all applicable inspection and registration requirements. You will only list vehicles with a clean, non-salvaged, non-written off, non-washed, and non-branded title. You agree to respond to any applicable recall or similar safety notices and to complete any recommended action before allowing your vehicle to be booked. In addition, if WeRide believes that your vehicle does not conform to reasonable standards, WeRideWeRide may notify you and reserve the right to remove or decline listing your vehicle until its concerns have been resolved.

You may discontinue your use of the Services at any time and WeRide may terminate your access to the Services and remove any listings for any reason or no reason to the extent permissible under applicable law. Termination of access to the Services will not release a Party from any obligations it incurred prior to the termination and WeRideWeRide may retain and continue to use any information, including but not limited to photography, previously provided by you. Termination of the Agreement will not have any effect on the disclaimers, waiver or liability limitations, or legal disputes provisions under the Agreement and/or any fees due, and all of those terms will survive any termination of the Agreement.
