You are responsible for charging the Scooter, and for using a charging cord that has been provided to You or approved by Chartior. The level of charge power remaining in the Scooter will decrease from ongoing use of the Scooter. As the level of charge power of the Scooter decreases, the speed and other operational capabilities of the Scooter may decrease (or cease in their entirety). The level of charging power in the Scooter at the time You initiate the operation of the Scooter may vary with each use. The rate of loss of charging power during the use of the Scooter may vary based on the road conditions, weather conditions, temperature and other factors. The Scooter may run out of charging power and cease to operate at any time during Your use of the Scooter, including before reaching Your desired destination. You are responsible for checking and monitoring the level of charge power in the Scooter at all times.

If payment in full is not made within sixty (60) days, and if any scooter in your possession or control is not returned to Chartior pursuant to Section 7, Chartior, after prior written notice to You, may (i) deem said scooter(s) as “missing” pursuant to Section 15; and (ii) assess an additional non-recoverable scooter fee of up to the full retail value, for each scooter, in addition to (and not in lieu of) any past due balance and/or late fee(s).
13.6 Eligibility. Chartior may conduct a soft credit check for new customers when they first sign-up to use the platform. This soft credit check will not impact a customer’s credit score. Soft credit checks (also known as soft pulls or soft inquiries) are very common and will not affect credit scores, will not be visible to other lenders or creditors and may or may not be recorded in credit reports, depending on the credit bureau. Chartior takes a number of factors into account when making a decision to approve a new customer and a soft credit check is one of those factors.

- Missing Electric Scooter. A Scooter shall be designated as “missing” if it is stolen, if You fail to pay any and all payments owed by You for your rental of the Scooter while it is in your possession or control, or if it is otherwise unavailable for return to Chartior for any reason at the end of the term.

Chartior and all other Released Persons (defined below in Section 24) do not represent or warrant the quality or safety characteristics of any helmet, and Rider agrees that none of the Released Persons are liable for any injury suffered by Rider while using any of the Chartior Services, whether or not You were wearing a helmet at the time of injury. Rider assumes all risk of not wearing a helmet or other protective gear. Riders may also need to take additional safety measures or precautions not specifically set forth in this Agreement, including obeying local safety rules and measures. Any helmets provided as part of the Chartior On-Demand program may have had prior use and Chartior makes no guarantees for the quality or safety characteristics of such helmets; such helmets are provided as emergency equipment only, and are not regularly inspected. Riders shall always use their own safety equipment that is personally inspected when riding a Scooter.
- Scooter Routes Not Part of Chartior Services.

- Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver. PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY – IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT.
23.1 Best Efforts. The parties shall use their best efforts through this support process to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement and engage in good faith negotiations which shall be a condition to either party initiating mediation, arbitration, or a lawsuit.
23.2 Binding Arbitration. If the parties do not reach an agreed upon solution through the support process, then either party may initiate binding arbitration as the sole means to resolve claims, subject to the terms set forth below. Specifically, all claims arising out of or relating to use, rental, and subscription of a Scooter, this Agreement, and the parties’ relationship with each other shall be finally settled by binding arbitration administered by JAMS, or alternatively a mutually agreed upon arbitrator or arbitration service, under applicable commercial arbitration rules for JAMS (or the mutually agreed upon arbitration service), excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions.
The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Agreement, including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this Agreement are void or voidable, or whether a claim is subject to arbitration. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator’s award shall be written, and binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
To the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds the cost of filing a lawsuit, Chartior will pay the additional cost. The arbitration rules also permit You to recover attorneys’ fees in certain cases. The parties understand that, absent this mandatory provision, they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. They further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in a court of law.
23.3 Location. The exclusive location of arbitration will be Alameda County, California, or at a mutually agreed upon location (at Chartior’s sole discretion).
23.4 Class Action Waiver. The parties further agree that any arbitration shall be conducted in their individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. YOU AND CHARTIOR AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provision set forth above shall be deemed null and void in its entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.
23.5 Litigation of Intellectual Property or Small Claims Court Claims. Notwithstanding the parties’ decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may bring an action in the proper state or federal court to protect its intellectual property rights (“intellectual property rights” means patents, copyrights, moral rights, trademarks, and trade secrets, but not privacy or publicity rights). Either party may also seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court’s jurisdiction.
23.6 Right to Opt Out. You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth above by sending written notice of Your decision to opt-out to the following address: Chartior, Inc., 436 West Broadway, NY, NY, 10012. The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of the effective date or Your first use of the Service, whichever is later, otherwise You shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of those paragraphs. If You opt-out of these arbitration provisions, Chartior also will not be bound by them.
23.7 Changes to this Section. Chartior will provide prior written notice of any changes to this section. Changes will become effective only after prior written notice and will apply prospectively only to any claims arising after the notice period.

- Waiver and Severability. No waiver of any breach of any provision of this Agreement is a waiver of any other breach or of any other provision of this Agreement.
