You may not have more than one (1) active Cycle.land Account. You agree to provide accurate, current and complete information during the registration process and to update such information to keep it accurate, current and complete. Cycle.land reserves the right to suspend or terminate your Cycle.land Account and your access to the Site and Services if you create more than one (1) Cycle.land Account, or if any information provided during the registration process or thereafter proves to be inaccurate, fraudulent, not current or incomplete.

You agree that you will not disclose your password to any third party and that you will take sole responsibility for any activities or actions under your Cycle.land Account, whether or not you have authorized such activities or actions. You will immediately notify Cycle.land of any unauthorized use of your Cycle.land Account.


Bike Listings

As a Member, you may create Listings. To create a Listing, you will be asked a variety of questions about the Bike to be listed, including, but not limited to, the location, capacity, size, features, and availability of the Bike and pricing and related rules and financial terms. In order to be featured in Listings via the Site and Services, all Bikes must have valid physical addresses. Listings will be made publicly available via the Site and Services. Other Members will be able to book your Bike via the Site and Services based upon the information provided in your Listing. You understand and agree that once a Bike User requests a booking of your Bike, you may not request the Bike User to pay a higher price than in the booking request.

You acknowledge and agree that you alone are responsible for any and all Listings and Member Content you post. Cycle.land reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to remove or disable access to any Listing for any reason, including Listings that Cycle.land, in its sole discretion, considers to be objectionable for any reason, in violation of these Terms, or otherwise harmful to the Site or Services.

If you are a Bike Owner, you understand and agree that Cycle.land does not act as an insurer or as your contracting agent. If a Bike User requests a booking of your Bike and rents out your Bike, any agreement you enter into with such Bike User is between you and the Bike User and Cycle.land is not a party to it.

When you create a Listing, you may also choose to include certain requirements which must be met by the Members who are eligible to request a booking of your Bike, such as requiring Members to have a profile picture or verified phone number, in order to book your Bike. Any Member wishing to book Bikes included in Listings with such requirements must meet these requirements.

If you are a Bike Owner, Cycle.land makes certain tools available to you to help you to make informed decisions about which Members you choose to confirm for booking for your Bike. You acknowledge and agree that, as a Bike Owner, you are responsible for your own acts and omissions and are also responsible for the acts and omissions.

Cycle.land recommends that Bike Owners obtain appropriate insurance for their Bikes. Please review any insurance policy that you may have for your Bike carefully, and in particular please make sure that you are familiar with and understand any exclusions to, and any deductibles that may apply for, such insurance policy, including, but not limited to, whether or not your insurance policy will cover the actions or inactions of Bike Users (and the individuals the Bike User invites to the Bike, if applicable) while renting your Bike.

Cycle.land may offer Bike Owners the option of having photographers take photographs of their Bikes. If you as a Bike Owner choose to have a photographer do this, the photographs taken will be made available to you to include in your Listing with a watermark or tag bearing the words "Cycle.land Verified Photo" or similar wording ("Verified Images"). You agree that you alone are responsible for ensuring that your Listing is accurately represented in the Verified Images. You alone are responsible for using the Verified Images and you warrant that you will cease to use the Verified Images or any other images if such images cease to accurately represent your Listing. All images, materials and content created by these photographers, including Verified Images, constitute Cycle.land Content, regardless of whether you include them in your Listing. You agree that Cycle.land may use the Verified 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.


No Endorsement

Cycle.land does not endorse any Member or any Bike. You understand that Verified Images are intended only to indicate a photographic representation of the Bike at the time the photograph was taken. Verified Images are therefore not an endorsement by Cycle.land of any Member or any Bike. Members are required by these Terms to provide accurate information, and although Cycle.land may undertake additional checks and processes designed to help verify or check the identities or backgrounds of users, we do not make any representations about, confirm, or endorse any Member or the Member's purported identity or background.

Any references in the Site or Services to a Member being "verified" or "connected" (or similar language) only indicate that the Member has completed a relevant verification process, and does not represent anything else. Any such description is not an endorsement, certification or guarantee by Cycle.land about any Member, including of the Member's identity and whether the Member is trustworthy, safe or suitable. Instead, any such description is intended to be useful information for you to evaluate when you make your own decisions about the identity and suitability of others whom you contact or interact with via the Site and Services. We therefore recommend that you always exercise due diligence and care when deciding whether to rent out a Bike from a Bike Owner or to accept a booking request from a Bike User, or to have any other interaction with any other Member. By using the Site or Services, you agree that any legal remedy or liability that you seek to obtain for actions or omissions of other Members or other third parties will be limited to a claim against the particular Members or other third parties who caused you harm. You agree not to attempt to impose liability on or seek any legal remedy from Cycle.land with respect to such actions or omissions. Accordingly, we encourage you to communicate directly with other Members on the Site and Services regarding any bookings or Listings made by you.
