Terms of Use

Our Software

TaxiStartup is a dispatch software for taxi or private hire services to the general public, and accordingly is not registered as an operator of taxi or private hire services.
The cab office is responsible for reviewing and accepting the terms and conditions before subscribing. Because bookings are made between the cab office the customer, any questions or complaints should be made to the cab office directly. To cancel or amend a booking, customers must contact the cab office directly.

Rates and Availability

Even though we ensure that the companies we work with have all necessary licences, consents and permissions required for it lawfully to perform the service, we take no responsability of the final service provided by The Service Provider. TaxiStartup is available to selected cab offices only, and the service may be withdrawn at any time.

Communication Expenses

TaxiStartup uses a number of SMS gateways to verify drivers’ and passengers’ phone number as well as email services to communicate with drivers and passengers (further Communication Providers). Expenses on SMS and email communications are billed on your (customer’s) account monthly in addition to the service costs. TaxiStartup does not charge any additional overhead on the prices of Communication Providers.

Payment

Customers will pay a monthly subscription for the use of TaxiStartup; the amount varies according to the level of service requested, unless otherwise is agreed upon and confirmed by both parties in the written and signed mutual agreement. The fee for customer journeys shall be set by each cab offices according to their rates. We take no responsibility of the final price charged by The Service Provider.
Customers signed-up on “per order” plan, meaning that they pay for each order done via TaxiStartup system, will be charged on pay-as-you-go basis, meaning that an “order” fee will be deducted from their balance once an order took place. Thus the balance should stay positive to avoid account suspension. An “order” fee is taken once we connect passenger with the driver, meaning that a driver accepted/bid/won the order and a passenger accepted the driver.

Cancelation and Refund Policy

If you cancel your services, your cancellation takes effect on your next billing cycle. This means we won’t be able to refund you for any unused portion of your services.
Items eligible for a refund will be issued to the method of original payment.
It may take up to a few days for TaxiStartup to process your cancellation or plan change, but all cancellations and changes will be effective as of the date that TaxiStartup receives your change request.

In case refund is made anyways, it can not exceed 20% of total payments for all periods to avoid frauds.

Limitation of Liability

TaxiStartup will under no circumstance be liable for indirect, special, or consequential damages including any loss of business, revenue, profits, or data in relation to your use of the Software. Nothing within this Agreement will operate to exclude any liability for death or personal injury arising as result of the negligence of TaxiStartup, its employees or agents.
