Specifically, the Service is mainly built upon two main elements: (i) User registration —which includes Biometrical ID validation of Users for allowing them to interact with the Vehicles[1]—; and (ii) Rental of Vehicles —”Individual Driverless Rental Agreement”—.

 

Any valid registration of Users does not imply any obligation in relation to the Individual Driverless Rental Agreement that a User may enter into. Users must be aware of the different levels of contractual relationship due to the use of the Apps and the Service offered by guppy:

 

  1. First level: Users will be able to surf the Apps in a limited way without creating a User account (including, but not limited to: (i) browse and interact with it; (ii) access a geolocation service of the Vehicles; (iii) implement corrections & adjustments; (iv) check the fleet of Vehicles; (v) or examine guppy parking areas). Apps functionalities that may be experienced by Users without a User account will be minimum and may be modified (through additions or suppressions) by guppy without any User previous express consent.

 

  1. Second level: by creating a User account (hereinafter, “User Profile“), Users submit to guppy their name and surname, e-mail address, personal cell phone number and personal card payment data (debit or credit card)[2]. By creating a User Profile, Users of the Apps expressly accept guppy’s Terms and Conditions. Likewise, during the registration process of the User while enabling its User Profile, the User will have to upload, through the method or system implemented in the Apps (at guppy’s discretion) biometric data about his/her person that allows his/her easy identification[3], as well as photographs of the documents in force that grant him/her permit to circulate around the service area defined by guppy (both on the front and on the back), in accordance with the current regulations on the traffic rules applicable to motor vehicles[4].

 

iii.        Third level: in order to enter into a Rental agreement, Users must have successfully completed the registration process and have a validated User Profile by obtaining an express confirmation from guppy. Thus, the User will be granted with his personal and non-transferable User Profile, within the Apps, in relation to data verification & analysis previously communicated during such process. Whenever the User interacts through the Apps in order to use the Vehicle with the purpose of circulating in the service area defined by guppy, he will enter into the Rental (every User will be able, through the Apps, to reserve exclusively a Vehicle during a period not exceeding twenty minutes after the interaction with the corresponding link in the Apps, prior to its effective use (“Reservation“)[5].

 

Prices and rates associated with the Service shall be those in effect from time to time, as set forth in the Apps and the Website (“Pricing Policy“), at the time each User enters into the Rental, as set forth in the Terms and Conditions, the Pricing Policy, and the information displayed to the User on the Apps.

 

At all times the cost per kilometer, minute or hour will be shown on the Apps, regardless of the billing system that governs the Service offered by guppy.

 

guppy keeps all faculties and rights to deny the registration to a User if there is any reason to consider that, based on its criteria, the User’s conduct will not be directed to the full compliance of the contractual relations necessary to enjoy the Service.

 

User should be aware that, when entering into the Rental, the Terms and Conditions will be complemented by the specific rules and agreements applicable to the Vehicles regarding motor vehicle insurance and the Pricing Policy.

 

In any case, and unless it is included in a particular way in specific agreements related to an Enterprise Customer, it is strictly forbidden to drive on or use the Vehicles for:

 

  1. the commercial transport of goods or natural persons.

 

  1. the performance of industrial tasks.

 

iii.        any surface to which the legislation included in art. 1 of Royal Decree 1507/2008, of 12 September, which approves the Regulation of mandatory motor vehicle civil liability insurance (such as ports and airports) does not cover

guppy expressly reserves the right to reasonably modify the Terms and Conditions as well as the Pricing Policy. Modifications of the Terms and Conditions will be sent to the Users by means of e-mail, in addition to making available to them via Website or in the Apps, whenever the legal relationship between guppy and the User is amended. In this case, guppy will consider that the Users have accepted the proposed changes if within one (1) month from the described communication they do not oppose them in an express way by sending an e-mail to the following address: hola@guppy.es. Please note that, for each modification of the Terms and Conditions or the proposed Pricing Policy, guppy will remind the Users of the points included in this paragraph.

  1. PROCEDURE FOR REGISTRATION AND REGISTRATION OF THE USER PROFILE

 

  1. The User registration procedure includes the uploading of the identification documentation required in the Terms and Conditions so that guppy can verify if the User qualifies, based on the current regulations, a priori, to drive the Vehicles. If the verification process is satisfactory, any User will be granted authorization to create a User Profile and, with it, any User will be able to enter into an Individual Driverless Rental Agreement to use and drive the Vehicles.

Specifically, the User is warned that any conduct aimed at falsifying any documentation required for this purpose will automatically imply a breach of the Terms and Conditions, as well as the commission of an unlawful act which may, depending on the specific circumstances, be considered as an alleged crime against any of the legal assets protected by the Organic Act 10/1995, of November 23rd, of the Criminal Code.

 

For this purpose:

 

  1. The User will be subjected to an electronic procedure set up for validation and verification of the former’s identity (which may consist of recording videoselfie or taking personal photographs, which will reflect, in any case, their facial features in a perfectly identifiable manner provided that sufficient resolution for the photograph/s required is/are understood, by guppy, as perfectly clear, as well as verification of the front and back of the document in force that qualifies them as enabling to circulate with the Vehicles in accordance with applicable law and the Terms and Conditions. Once the identity verification procedure has been carried out, any User will press the “next” button embedded in the Apps, within the “User Registration” section.

 

  1. After pressing the button of the Apps mentioned in the previous paragraph, said process of User’s ID verification will begin.

 

iii.        The User, after receiving express confirmation from guppy, will be able to enjoy his/her User Profile and the Apps unless the document that expressly enables him/her to drive the Vehicles or the indicated and accepted payment card is expired and no longer considered as valid. In any case, the User shall acquit to a new procedure of ID verification through the means that are available at that time in the Apps in accordance with the Terms and Conditions. Notwithstanding the foregoing, guppy expressly reserves the right to require to any User to appear before its offices to proceed with a personal check and verification of its identity, as well as to personally check any granted administrative qualification to drive vehicles. If the User does not comply with this requirement, guppy may block his/her User Profile until the former actually complies with such obligation. Otherwise, guppy may, at its sole discretion, cancel such User Profile terminating any contractual relationship in force until that moment with the User, without the latter being able to claim any monetary compensation or liability whatsoever.

 

  1. In the event that the User loses or has his/her driving license withdrawn (or if is prohibited for any reason) from driving in the Kingdom of Spain, any right to drive the Vehicles arising in compliance with the Terms and Conditions shall cease immediately.

The User has the essential obligation to safe (and not disclose) his Password and his smartphone, since they are considered personal and non-transferable, against any access by third parties and from any loss. The User will inform guppy, immediately, and will change his Password if it could have been disclosed to a third party by any means. It is recommended that the User generates a strong Password, such as one that includes letters, numbers and symbols, without being associated to dates, names or events linked to the User’s personal life.

The Reservation time prior to its effective circulation may be extended by initiating the Individual Driverless Rental Agreement.

Before ignition of Vehicle for its effective circulation, the User is expressly obliged to (i) check, in situ, any defects, damages and serious dirtiness that may affect the exterior or interior of the Vehicle; and (ii) inform guppy about it, either through the Apps, according to the system that may be implemented or by means of a telephone call to the customer attention service available at each moment. In case of serious damage, the User shall contact guppy by phone to communicate the status such damage.

  1. ASSIGNMENTS, AUTHORIZATIONS AND PRIOR NOTIFICATIONS

 

  1. guppy reserves the right to assign any credit rights in its favor from all contracts signed by the User.
