TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR PARKERS
The Services constitute a technology platform that enables Drivers of GarageHop’s or Affiliates mobile applications or websites provided as part of the Services (each, an “App” or “Application”) to find, subscribe and pay for the lease of a thirty (30) days assigned parking space with exclusive use for their own vehicle (the Parking Space) provided by a third party, the parking owner, manager or operator ("Owner"). GarageHop also provides you with access to the vehicular gate of the parking facility using a Virtual Key through the App. Unless otherwise agreed by us in a separate written agreement with you, the Services are made solely for your personal , non-commercial use.
Please note that these terms apply only to the provision of Services directly by us to you. These terms do not apply to your use of the Parking Space you lease to a Third Party. The lease of the Parking Space is dealt with under the terms of your Parking Space Lease Agreement with the Owner, as your lessor (“Lessor”), and also includes any additional provisions included in an Owner’s listing.
You acknowledge and agree that GarageHop is a technology services provider that does not provide parking services and is not and shall not act as a parking operator, a real estate broker, agent or insurer. We have no control over the conduct of the Owner and disclaim all liability in this regard. The Parking Space Lease Agreement and any additional restrictions included in your listing are a contract between you, as the Lessee, and the Owner, as your Lessor. We are not a party to that agreement and we will not be liable to you, the Owner or any third party for any breach of the Parking Space Lease Agreement or otherwise in relation to the Parking Space.
