16. PAYMENT SYSTEM FOR RIDE-SHARING WITH PERSONAL VEHICLES
The use of the Application is free of charge however Company charges users who earn from sharing rides on their personal vehicles. RideAlly takes a small percentage from vehicle owners when they redeem points.
It is not legal to make profit from personal vehicles however one can save the cost of fuel. We anyway share our travel with colleagues, friends, relatives etc all the time and RideAlly is just a software platform to enable that.
We have customized our solution to ensure that vehicle owner do not make profit however they can share cost (by earning points) which would be lesser than cost of travel. E.g. if cost of travel in Car is 7 or 8 Rs/Km (primarily fuel cost, maintenance, insurance etc.) than they would NOT be able to earn/save more than that. Similarly, it is for Bike. You can share/get rides for free as well.
When a vehicle owner offer ride, he/she earns the points based on type of vehicle, distance and fare set by the owner/driver (minimum is 0 points and max. Is 4 points). When a person takes ride, he/she needs to transfer the points to the person offering vehicle. Vehicle owner can redeem/encash points and get fuel card or money in his wallet for fuel/Maintenance costs. There is no cash exchange involved.
Vehicle owners shall not use the services to offer or accept for hire or reward or for profit or in any commercial or professional context. Members are reminded that using the Services and offering rides for hire or reward or in a commercial or professional capacity may invalidate a vehicle’s insurance and invite adverse legal actions by the road transport authorities. Company shall not be in for any loss or damage incurred by a Member as a result of any breach by a Member of these Conditions. If Company would come to know of any such practices than it would term it as ‘Unauthorised use’ of services and would take appropriate action by banning the account forever.
17. PAYMENT SYSTEM OF CAB SERVICES
RideAlly also earns by providing taxis services through its preferred vendors. The cost for the taxi ride to Airport or any particular place can be found on the platform. These costs are tentative and Company reserves the right to modify or update from time to time.
