All terms, provisions and agreements set forth in the Riding Rules are hereby incorporated herein by reference with the same force and effect as though fully set forth herein.
- The Rules detail safety and other restrictions to safeguard yourself and others, and to respect local laws and regulations.

You acknowledge and agree that we may stop (permanently or temporarily) providing the Services (or any features within the Services) to you or to users generally and not be able to provide you with prior notice. We also retain the right to create limits on use at our sole discretion at any time and without prior notice to you. We may suspend our vehicle rental program at any time at our sole discretion without prior notice to you.

You are responsible for safeguarding the password for your Account and for any activities or actions on your Account. We encourage you to use strong passwords with your Account. You must treat such information as confidential. You must not disclose it to any third party. Neuron cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to abide by the above and your failure to safeguard your Account, passwords, and other sensitive information.

- prohibit the Account owner or other person from accessing and/or using the Services or participating in any promotion by Neuron; and/or
- merge, suspend, and/or terminate Account(s).
Your licence to use the platform
- Neuron grants you a revocable personal, royalty-free, non-assignable, and non-exclusive licence to use the Platform and associated Apps.

- You must not use the Services for any commercial purpose.
- You understand that use of the Services may result in charges as detailed in the App and on the Neuron website to you for the Services you receive (“Charges”).

All Charges are due immediately and payment will be deducted from your stored value balance or debited from your payment card.
- Security Deposit: We do not presently require a security deposit for use of the Services, but this could change in the future.
- Usage Fees: You may use the Products on a per trip basis or as otherwise in accordance with the pricing described in the App. We will charge your agreed payment methods the amount of the fees as described in the App and on the website.
- Convenience Fee: If you do not abide by the Riding Rules, and/or violate these Terms of Service, you may be charged a convenience fee by us. This fee is not a penalty but represents some or all of the cost to us of remedying your breach of the Riding Rules and/or Terms of Service.
- Valid Credit Card or Debit Card: In some jurisdictions, you must input valid credit or debit card details and a valid expiration date as a prerequisite to using the Services. You represent and warrant that you are authorised to use any cards you provide the details of. You authorise us to charge the card for all fees incurred by you. All fees are subject to applicable sales taxes and other government charges, which may be charged and collected by us. If you dispute any charge on your card account, then you must contact us within 10 business days from the end of the month with the disputed charge, provide to us all trip information that is necessary to identify the disputed charge, such as the date of the trip and the approximate starting and ending times. You agree to immediately inform us of all changes relating to your card.
- Neuron may, at Neuron’s sole discretion, create promotional codes that may be redeemed for Account credit, or other features or benefits related to the Services, subject to any additional terms that Neuron establishes on a per promotional code basis (“Promo Codes”).
- You agree that Promo Codes:
- must be used for the intended audience and purpose, and in a lawful manner;
- may not be duplicated, sold or transferred in any manner, or made available to the general public (whether posted to a public form or otherwise), unless expressly permitted by Neuron;
- may be disabled by us at any time for any reason at our sole discretion, without liability to Neuron;
- may only be used pursuant to the specific terms that Neuron establishes for such Promo Code;
- have no cash value, and are not exchangeable for cash or vouchers or monetary benefit; and
- may expire prior to your use.
- Neuron reserves the right to withhold or deduct credits or other features or benefits obtained through the use of Promo Codes by you or any other user in the event that Neuron determines or believes that the use or redemption of the Promo Code was in error, fraudulent, illegal, or in violation of the applicable Promo Code terms or these Terms of Service.
Your safety and peace of mind is important to us, however any insurance held by Neuron does not cover you for any injury, harm, damage or loss you may suffer in the event of an accident (or otherwise related to your use of the Services) and you should give consideration to obtaining your own insurance.
Damaged, lost, or stolen vehicles
- Neuron reserves the right to take all necessary actions available to it at law if, in our reasonable opinion, a vehicle rented by you is determined to have been damaged (fair wear and tear excepted), lost or stolen, including but not limited to:
- holding you liable, and charging your payment method on file, for the cost to repair a vehicle damaged;
- holding you liable, and charging your payment method on file, for: (i) the full replacement cost of the vehicle, (ii) outstanding usage charges, (iii) charges and expenses incurred by Neuron in its recovery attempts, (iv) interest, and (v) any other relevant charges for a lost or stolen vehicle;
- making a police report against you; and/or
- commencing recovery actions and proceedings against you.
