Driver Must Maintain Own Insurance
The Driver agrees and undertakes to maintain insurance to cover the Ride and any car sharing offered or booked through the BlancRide Platform. The Driver agrees that they will, on request, provide the Rider with evidence, in advance of the Ride, of the complete validity of its insurance policy. The Driver also undertakes to hold a valid driver’s license and that the Driver will own or will be entitled to use the Vehicle and the Rider is entitled to request evidence of the Driver’s insurance and driver’s license at any time up to completion of the Ride.

Blanclink gives no warranty or assurance with regard to the validity of a Driver’s insurance or the application of a Driver’s insurance policy to a Ride. It is the Driver’s responsibility to verify that their insurance provides adequate coverage for all activities associated with the Driver’s use of the Services, including providing Rides to Riders. It is the sole responsibility of each Driver and Rider to confirm with each other that the Driver maintains valid insurance. The Driver represents that their insurance policy allows them to carry Riders and that their insurance policy covers all Riders and any accident or incident which may occur during a Ride.

The Driver acknowledges that standard non-commercial insurance policies may refuse to cover loss or damage arising in certain circumstances, including, in the event that the Driver was using a vehicle for profit. The Driver shall not collect any payments from the Rider other than the Cost Contribution. The Driver therefore undertakes to calculate the expense of operating the motor vehicle and represents that the Cost Contributions requested from their Riders does not result in any profit to the Driver. In the event that a Driver’s insurer repudiates or refuses to accept any claim arising during a Ride for any reason, the Driver will be responsible for all financial consequences, losses and damages of any kind arising and Blanclink will not be liable in any circumstances to the Driver, the Rider or any third party in connection with a Ride provided by a Driver to a Rider. A “Cross-Border Ride” means any Ride that includes any travel outside of Ontario. If a booking is made for a Cross-Border Ride, Drivers must ensure that their insurance covers travel outside of the province.

Drivers Must Not Profit From Ride

The BlancRide Platform and the Services are strictly limited to providing a Service for Drivers and Riders to car share in their personal capacities. The Services may not be used to offer or accept car sharing for profit or in any commercial context.

The Cost Contribution may only be used to discharge the Driver’s costs and are not intended to provide any profit to the Driver. The Driver is not entitled to a profit by virtue of the amount of the Cost Contribution, the types of Rides offered by a Driver, the frequency of such Rides or the number of Riders transported. This applies to all Services booked using the BlancRide Platform. The Driver must not provide additional services to any Rider for profit or gain (and the Rider may not accept or ask for any such services) including (without limitation) package delivery, waiting time, additional drop offs and pick-ups and collecting additional Riders (other than the Rider).

The Driver must not take Riders on more than one Ride per day. For greater certainty, a Ride includes a round trip between the residences, or places reasonably convenient to the residences, of any or all of the Driver and Riders and a common destination, including the Driver’s and Riders’ place of employment or education, or a place reasonably convenient to the Driver’s and Riders’ various places of employment or education.

How data is used

1. Analytics information. We may directly collect analytics data, or use third-party analytics tools, to help Us measure traffic and usage trends for the Services. These tools may collect information sent by Your browser or mobile device, including the pages You visit and other information that assists Us in improving the Services. We collect and use this information in aggregate form such that it cannot reasonably be manipulated to identify any particular individual user.

2. Cookies information: When You visit the Service, we may send one or more cookies — A cookie is a small piece of data sent from a website and stored in a User’s web browser — to Your computer that uniquely identifies Your browser and lets BlancRide help You log in faster and enhance Your navigation through the site. A cookie may also convey information to Us about how You use the Services (e.g., the pages You view, the links You click and other actions You take on the Service), and allow Us or Our business partners to track Your usage of the Services over time. A persistent cookie remains on Your hard drive after You close Your browser. Persistent cookies may be used by Your browser on subsequent visits to the site. Persistent cookies can be removed by following Your web browser’s directions. A session cookie is temporary and disappears after You close Your browser. You can reset Your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some features of the Service may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.

3. Log file information: Log file information is automatically reported by Your browser or mobile device each time You access the Services.

These server logs may include anonymous information such as Your web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, referring / exit pages and URLs, number of clicks and how You interact with links on the Services, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and other such information. In addition, in certain instances the browser may prompt You for Your geo-location to allow Us to provide You with an enhanced experience. With this technical data Our website administrators can manage the BlancRide Platform, for instance by resolving technical difficulties or improving the accessibility of certain parts of the BlancRide Platform. This way, We ensure that You can continue to find the information on the Website in a quick and simple manner. For more information, see the section below on location data.

4. Clear gifs/web beacons information: When You use the Service, we may employ clear gifs (also known as web beacons) which are used to anonymously track the online usage patterns of our Users. In addition, We may also use clear gifs in HTML-based emails sent to Our users to track which emails are opened and which links are clicked by recipients.

If You are traveling in a Vehicle, We will collect the Driver's geo-location information from the Driver's mobile device.

This information is necessary to calculate Your fare, send You a receipt showing the route of the ride, allow You to view Your trip history in Your BlancRide account, and handle complaints from You or Drivers.

7. Commercial and marketing communications: We use the information we collect or receive to communicate directly with You. We may send You electronic messages containing newsletters, surveys, promotions and special offers as a result of the express consent you have provided in agreeing to the Terms & Conditions.

If You share a computer, You should sign out of Your BlancRide account and close the browser window before someone else logs on. This will help protect Your information entered on public terminals from disclosure to third parties.

BlancRide makes every effort to ensure that Your information is secure on its system. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, BlancRide cannot guarantee the security of any information You transmit to Us, and You do so at Your own risk. If You have any further questions on this issue, refer to Our Terms of Use. BlancRide expressly disclaims any liability that may arise should any other individuals obtain the information You submit to the BlancRide Platform.

BlancRide has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under Our control. Your information may be transferred to and maintained on computer networks which may be located outside of the state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction in which You reside, and the country or jurisdiction in which these computer networks are located may not have privacy laws as protective as the laws in Your country or jurisdiction.

The BlancRide Platform may contain links to other web sites. We are of course not responsible for the privacy practices of other web sites. We encourage Our Users to be aware when they leave the BlancRide Platform to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by the BlancRide Platform.

Trusting our users

All communities require a level of trust. The BlancRide community is no exception to this rule.

Drugs and alcohol

To protect the safety of all of our users, BlancRide will have zero-tolerance for any driver presumed to be using drugs or alcohol while driving or before driving any of our passengers.

Cancellation policies

For scheduled rides, cancellation fees are dependent upon at which point in the ride process you have chosen to cancel your ride.

There is no cancellation fee for cancellations of ride requests before they are confirmed.

If a ride has been confirmed by both the driver and the passenger a fee may apply. Confirmed scheduled rides must be canceled at least 24 hours before the ride is scheduled to begin to avoid a cancellation fee. If there is less than 24 hours before your scheduled ride and you chose to cancel, a $5 fee will be charged to your account.
