1. Welcome and Introduction
Mobileoffer, Inc. dba Freebird Rides (“Freebird”, “Freebird Rides”, “we,” “our,” or “us”) owns and operates certain websites, applications, tools, technologies, and programs and associated services (collectively, the “Services”) that reference these Terms of Service (the “Agreement”).
This Agreement is a contract between you and us that governs your access and use of the Services. What does that mean? It means that by accessing and/or using the Services, or by clicking a button or checking a box marked “I Agree” (or something similar), you agree to all the terms and conditions of this Agreement. If you do not agree, do not use the Services. As used in this Agreement, “you” means the company or other entity that you represent that will be using the Services as a Member Business (defined below).If you are signing up on behalf of a company or other entity, you individually warrant and represent that you are properly exercising your authority to bind such company or entity.
2. The Services
Freebird Rides is a referral service. Freebird Rides contracts with businesses that wish to encourage customers to visit their places of business (“Member Businesses”) by offering to reimburse their potential customers for some or all of their costs of obtaining transportation from a third-party rideshare service such as Uber or Lyft. The Services include access to a mobile application and related tools (the “Application”) that integrate with the rideshare services, track the offers of Member Businesses, and communicate them to riders. When a rider becomes a customer of a Member Business by making a purchase at the Member Business, the Application handles reimbursement to the rider in the amount of the offer from the Member Business or the cost of the ride, whichever is less.
Use of Freebird as a Member Business requires that you be registered for an account with us (“Account“). In connection with such registration, you agree to (a) provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself and your business location as necessary to complete your registration, and (b) promptly update the personal or business location information you provide to ensure that it is always true, accurate, current and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, outdated or incomplete, or Freebird has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, outdated or incomplete, Freebird has the right to block your current or future use of the Services (or any portion of your use).
Member Businesses will have access to a web-based platform (the “Portal”) where they can list their location, create and edit offers made to riders with the Application, and access details about the ride taken to their location.Member Businesses that offer a cash offer within the application will be charged a service fee for each ride Freebird facilitates that delivers a rider to the Member Business.Member Businesses will only be charged the service fee as long as the rider makes a qualifying purchase. A qualifying purchase is (i) a transaction made at the Member Business’ location; (ii) for a minimum amount as stated in the Application; (iii) with a credit or debit card linked to the Application; and (iv) that is made or processed within 14 business days of the rider arriving at the member business.In exchange for the service fee, the Member Business will receive certain transaction and ride details for each individual rider that accepts their cash offer.
Member Businesses that offer a point offer within the application will be charged a service fee for each ride Freebird facilitates that delivers a rider to the Member Business.No minimum purchase is required for the Member Business to reimburse a points ride and to pay a per ride service fee.In exchange for the service fee, the Member Business will receive certain ride details for each individual rider that accepts their point offer.
The Services are made available to riders for their own personal and non-commercial use. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT PROVIDING THE SERVICES DOES NOT MAKE FREEBIRD RIDES A TRANSPORTATION PROVIDER, DELIVERY SERVICE, OR CARRIER.
The term “Services” does not include Professional Services.“Professional Services” means any work we do at your request to develop features, modifications, or customizations for your specific use, as well as any other work we do for you that are not included in our standard Services.

6.Services, Payment, and Term
Creation of a Freebird Account (“Freebird Account”) is free, and your credit card or bank account will not be charged to create a Freebird business account.Freebird will charge your credit card or bank account a predetermined upfront amount that you select (“Ride Package Amount”) in advance of a ride offer to your location(s) being made available in the Application for Riders to accept.Once your Ride Package Amount is depleted, Freebird will charge your payment method to replenish your Freebird Account.You can change the Ride Package Amount to which your payment method will be replenished via the Portal.
Your Ride Package Amount will be used to pay (i) the ride reimbursement amount your business determines to provide the rider whether provided in cash or Freebird rewards points to the rider(“Ride Reimbursement”) and (ii) a per ride Freebird service fee that will vary depending upon the type or amount of Ride Reimbursement (“Service Fees”) for each ride offer accepted by a Rider within the Application that is taken to your location(s).The amount of the Ride Reimbursement and the Service Fee deducted from your Freebird Account will vary depending on if you have a cash or point offer available to riders within the Application.
Freebird will charge you in advance of your location(s) ride offer being accepted by a Rider, except for Fees for overages, which are charged in arrears.Fees must be paid in U.S. dollars. All amounts paid or payable are non-refundable, non-cancelable and non-creditable, except to the extent you have unused funds available at expiration or earlier termination of this Agreement.We will return those unused funds within thirty (30) days after expiration or termination of this Agreement. Unless otherwise stated, you shall be responsible for and shall pay all Taxes imposed on or with respect to the Services that are the subject of this Agreement. “Taxes” mean all applicable federal, state and local taxes, fees, charges, or other similar exactions, including, without limitation, sales and use taxes, excise taxes, VAT, GST, and other license or business and occupations taxes.If you are paying any Fees by credit card, you shall provide us complete and accurate information regarding the applicable credit card. You represent and warrant that all such information is correct and that you are authorized to use such credit card. You shall promptly update your account information with any changes (for example, a change in billing address or credit card information) that may occur. You hereby authorize us to bill such credit card (a) in advance on a periodic basis, in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and a Ride Offer; and (b) in arrears for any applicable overages, in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and a Ride Offer, and you further agree to pay any and all charges so incurred.

We reserve the right to modify the Fees for the Services, effective upon depletion of your Ride Package Amount, by notifying you in writing of the change in Fees before the end of the then-current account balance.
For any change in the Ride Package Amount, we shall automatically charge you the new Ride Package Amount, effective as of the date the service upgrade is requested and for each subsequent Ride Package Amount pursuant to the billing method applicable to you.Any decrease in a Ride Package Amount shall only take effect upon the next replenishment of your Ride Package Amount.Any change or downgrade of your offer type, from cash to points, may cause the loss of features or capacity of your and your Users’ Accounts.
