Capitalized terms have the meanings given to them where defined in this Agreement.

1) USE OF HOVER BIKES
1.1) The Rider is the sole renter and is solely responsible for compliance with all terms and conditions contained herein. You understand that when You activate a Vehicle from the location, the Vehicle must be used only by You. You must not allow others to use a Vehicle that You have activated from the location.

1.4) Rider agrees that the Vehicle and any Hover Mobility equipment attached to the Vehicle, at all times, remain the exclusive property of Hover Mobility. You must not disassemble, write on, modify, repair or deface a Vehicle, any part of a Vehicle, or other “Hover” equipment in any way.

1.5) Hover mobility makes every effort to provide the Hover Service 365 days per year, but does not guarantee that the Service will be available at all times, as major events or other circumstances might prevent Hover from providing the service. Access to the service is also conditioned on the availability of Vehicles. Hover mobility does not represent or warrant the availability of any service or the availability of any Vehicle at any time. Rider agrees that Hover may require Rider to return a Vehicle at any time. The number of Vehicles are limited and Vehicle availability is never guaranteed.
1.6) Riders are also not permitted to use our services to participate in activities beyond a particular product’s intended use. Some of these are obvious, but for example, no racing, mountain riding, stunts or trick-riding, and don’t take a product off-road or through massive amounts of water (beyond normal urban riding, of course). All of these uses can damage our products.

RTO registration tag is also not required for the Vehicle.
Rider understands and agrees with each of the following:
The level of charge power remaining in the electric Bike will decrease with use of the Vehicle (over both time and distance), and that as the level of charge power of the Vehicle decreases, the speed and other operational capabilities of the Vehicle may decrease (or cease in their entirety).
The level of charging power in the Vehicle at the time Rider initiates the rental or operation of the Vehicle is not guaranteed and will vary with each rental use.The rate of loss of charging power during the use of the Vehicle is not guaranteed and will vary based on the Vehicle, road conditions, weather conditions, and other factors.
It is Riders responsibility to be aware of the level of charge power in the product you are using.

Do its brakes and lights work?
Are the seat and basket properly attached to a bike?
Is the battery charged?
Is there any other sign of damage, unusual or excessive wear or is maintenance needed?
Something could have happened to the Product since its condition was last checked, and we need you to tell us if something isn’t working properly if you notice it before we do. If you notice any of these or other issues in a Product before your use, don’t use it. Reserve another one instead. If you notice something during use, stop your trip as safely as you can and as soon as possible. If you don’t report these issues, we may have to attribute them to you, including holding you responsible for any associated costs, so please tell us if anything you see doesn’t look right. Rider agrees to return the Hover bike in the same condition in which it was rented. Riders will not be responsible for normal wear and tear.
1.12) If the Electric bike runs out of charging power during a rental, Rider shall conclude the ride in compliance with all terms of this agreement. Rider must immediately report about this to Hover mobility OR via the Hover mobility App Support feature or e-mail – firstname.lastname@example.org

We each also expressly agree that this Agreement will be governed by the Indian Arbitration act even in the event you and/or we and/or these Terms are otherwise exempted from the Indian arbitration act. Any disputes in this regard shall be resolved exclusively by an arbitrator.
15.2) If either of us wish to initiate arbitration, the initiating party must notify the other party in writing via certified mail, return receipt requested, or hand delivery within the applicable statute of limitations period. This demand for arbitration must include (1) the name and address of the party seeking arbitration, (2) a statement of the legal and factual basis of the claim and (3) a description of the remedy sought.

In any case in which (1) the dispute is filed as a class, collective or representative action and (2) there is a final judicial determination that all or part of the Class Action Waiver is unenforceable, the class, collective and/or representative action to that extent must be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction, but the portion of the Class Action Waiver that is enforceable shall be enforced in arbitration. Notwithstanding any other clause contained in this Section or the, as defined below, any claim that all or part of this Class Action Waiver is unenforceable, unconscionable, void or voidable may be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator. All other disputes with respect to whether this Mutual Arbitration Provision is unenforceable, unconscionable, applicable, valid, void or voidable shall be determined exclusively by an arbitrator, and not by any court.
15.4) You and we will pay the administrative and arbitrator’s fees and other costs in accordance with the applicable arbitration rules; but if applicable arbitration rules or laws require us to pay a greater portion or all of such fees and costs in order for this Section to be enforceable, then we will have the right to elect to pay the fees and costs and proceed to arbitration. The arbitrator or arbitration panel, as the case may be, will apply and be bound by this Section and any additional terms, and will determine any Dispute according to applicable law and facts based upon the record and no other basis, and will issue a reasoned award. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including arbitrability. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Section or the Services.
15.5) Except as provided in the Class Action Waiver, the arbitrator may award all remedies to which a party is entitled under applicable law and which would otherwise be available in a court of law, but shall not be empowered to award any remedies that would not have been available in a court of law for the claims presented in arbitration. The arbitrator shall apply the state or federal substantive law, or both, as is applicable.
15.6) Except where arbitration is required above or with respect to the enforcement of any arbitration decision or award, any action or proceeding relating to any Dispute may only be instituted in state or federal court in India. Accordingly, we each mutually consent to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts for such matters. The award issued by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
15.7) This Mutual Arbitration Provision will survive any termination of your relationship with us.
16.8) This Mutual Arbitration Provision is the full and complete agreement relating to the formal resolution of disputes covered by this Mutual Arbitration Provision.
