If the applicable Transportation Authorities suspend or terminate some or all services they provide for proper operation of the App, we may be forced to suspend or terminate certain features or access to the App.
4. Reservation of Rights.
You do not acquire any ownership interest in the App under these Terms. Except as expressly granted to you in these Terms, we and our licensors reserve and retain our entire right, title, and interest in and to the App, including all copyrights, trademarks, and other intellectual property rights in or related to the App.
5. App Content.
The App and its contents may only be used in accordance with these Terms. All materials displayed on the App, including text, graphics, articles, photographs, images, and illustrations (collectively the “Content“) may be protected by U.S. copyright laws, international conventions, and other applicable intellectual property laws. You shall abide by all copyright notices, trademark rules, information, and restrictions contained in any Content accessed through the App, and shall not use, copy, reproduce, modify, translate, publish, broadcast, transmit, distribute, perform, upload, display, license, sell or otherwise exploit for any purposes whatsoever any Content or third party submissions or other proprietary rights not owned by you: (a) without the express prior written consent of the respective owners, and (b) in any way that violates any rights of third parties.

6. Collection and Use of Your Information.
a. You acknowledge that when you download, install, or use the App, we may use automatic means to collect information about your Mobile Device and about your use of the App.
b. You will also be required to provide certain information about yourself or your vehicle as a condition to using the App or certain of its features or functionality, and the App may provide you with opportunities to share information about yourself with others.
c. You agree that you will update and keep current all information that you provide to CDBV through the App, including payment and vehicle information
7. Your Account and Payment Terms.
a. Your user account for the App will be accessed through a username and password that you will create (your “Credentials“). You may also be required to provide a telephone number or email address for purposes of multi-factor authentication. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Credentials, and you are fully and solely responsible for all activities that occur under your user account. We encourage you to use unique Credentials and not use a password that you use on another website, app, or other online service. Cybercriminals often obtain credentials by attacking one online service and then try to access other online services using those same credentials. It is up to you to take adequate precautions with your Credentials, and to immediately notify CDBV of any unauthorized use of your Credentials.
b. CDBV can refuse registration of, access to, or cancel a user account in its discretion, at any time, for reasons such as violation of applicable law, breach of these Terms, force majeure, or any other matter that in CDBV’s discretion warrants such refusal or cancellation. If your account has no transaction activity for two (2) years, consecutively, we may close your account and disable that account’s access to the App. In addition, to the extent that we owe you any credits or reimbursements for Fees (as defined below) after we close your account, we will endeavor to transfer any such credits or reimbursements to you in accordance with applicable law.
c. You are solely responsible for obtaining and maintaining all equipment and ancillary services needed for your access to and use of the App and for paying all charges related to that equipment and ancillary services, including any fees for data, roaming, or messaging services.
d. You agree to pay the amounts set forth in the App for any charges incurred by the vehicles registered to your account, in addition to any activation, prepayment, reactivation, or other fees associated with your account (“Fees“). Fees may include a toll charge amount from the relevant Transportation Authority (“Toll Charge“), plus a transaction fee and a fee for any processing and management or similar fees imposed on CDBV by any Transportation Authority to process or manage Tolls. Transportation Authorities set the price of Toll Charges. Fees will be applied based on the license plate number provided for each vehicle that uses the App and our services. Components of each toll, including Toll Charges imposed by the applicable Transportation Authorities, can be seen in the App. The toll rate shown in the App may be higher or lower than what may be posted on road signs at the time of your travel. You also may not be entitled to participate in certain promotions made available by Transportation Authorities if the Transportation Authorities have not made those promotions available to users of the App. The relevant Transportation Authority will apply payment priority rules in an effort to prevent duplicate charges if a vehicle registered to your account also has a transponder registered with such Transportation Authority. However, prior to using the App, you should deactivate any tolling transponder and any applicable tolling accounts with relevant Transportation Authorities in jurisdictions where the App operates in order to avoid being charged additional amounts by such Transportation Authorities. Please visit our website for a list of the current jurisdictions where the App operates. Please note that the App does not currently support discounts for High Occupancy Vehicles.
e. We will notify you of any inability to collect Fees due on your account as a result of invalid payment or vehicle information. After we notify you of such inability three (3) times, we may suspend or terminate your user account or we may remove the affected vehicle from your user account. Once your user account, or a vehicle on your user account, has been suspended or terminated, you may be required to register your vehicle again or open a new user account. You are responsible for paying all Fees associated with your use of the App, even after your user account is terminated. You agree that in the event that your user account is terminated, we may retain your payment information for up to sixty (60) days in order to process transactions that have been incurred but not paid by you. If your account is suspended or terminated, you are responsible for paying any fees or other costs charged by the applicable Transportation Authorities related to your use of toll roads during such suspension or after such termination.
f. We do not store the credit card information you provide through the App on systems owned by CDBV but we participate in the cardholder data environment and will comply with the applicable Payment Card Industry (“PCI“) standards. We use third party payment processors to complete transactions through the App. We require these processors to comply with applicable PCI standards, including PCI Data Security Standards. However, we cannot guarantee absolute security of your credit card information and will not be liable for any theft or unauthorized use of your credit card information by third parties.
8. Sweepstakes, Contests and Promotions.
Please see the specific rules for any sweepstakes or contests that are made available through the App. CDBV may also (but has no obligation to) create and make available promotions that may be redeemed for discounts, account credits or other benefits related to the services provided through the App (“Promotions“). Promotions typically have an expiration date after which they will no longer apply. Promotions may be adjusted if the total discount value is greater than the value of the applicable Fees. Promotions (including codes) are not valid for cash. You agree not to duplicate or sell codes or other Promotion information nor make them available to the general public (unless publication is expressly permitted by the terms of the Promotion). We reserve the right to withdraw or cancel any of our Promotions at any time, either as a whole, or for specific services. If this happens, then the Promotions may not be used after the date of withdrawal or cancellation. We reserve the right to reject or cancel the use of a Promotions where fraud or illegal misuse is suspected. You waive any claims against us regarding such rejection or cancellation of your attempt to apply a Promotion. We are not liable to any user or other person for any financial loss arising out of the cancellation or withdrawal of any Promotion or any failure or inability of a user to use a Promotion for any reason.

TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW, CDBV, ON ITS OWN BEHALF AND ON BEHALF OF ITS AFFILIATES AND LICENSORS, EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY, OR OTHERWISE, WITH RESPECT TO THE APP, INCLUDING ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND WARRANTIES THAT MAY ARISE OUT OF COURSE OF DEALING, COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, USAGE, OR TRADE PRACTICE. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, CDBV PROVIDES NO WARRANTY OR UNDERTAKING, AND MAKES NO REPRESENTATION OF ANY KIND THAT THE APP WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS, ACHIEVE ANY INTENDED RESULTS, BE COMPATIBLE, OR WORK WITH ANY OTHER SOFTWARE, APPLICATIONS, SYSTEMS, OR SERVICES, OPERATE WITHOUT INTERRUPTION, MEET ANY PERFORMANCE OR RELIABILITY STANDARDS, OR BE ERROR-FREE, OR THAT ANY ERRORS OR DEFECTS CAN OR WILL BE CORRECTED. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR LIMITATIONS ON APPLICABLE STATUTORY RIGHTS OF A CONSUMER, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSION AND LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

21. Governing Law.
These Terms are governed by and should be construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas, without giving effect to any choice or conflict of law provision or rule that would apply the law of another jurisdiction.
22. Dispute Resolution.
a. You and CDBV agree that each party may bring claims against the other party only on an individual basis and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative action or proceeding. Unless both you and CDBV agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate or join more than one person’s or party’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a consolidated, representative, or class proceeding. Also, the arbitrator may award relief (including monetary, injunctive, and declaratory relief) only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief necessitated by that party’s individual claim(s). Any relief awarded cannot affect other users.
b. A form for initiating arbitration proceedings is available on the American Arbitration Association (“AAA“) site: https://www.adr.org/sites/default/files/Consumer_Demand_for_Arbitration_Form_3.pdf. In addition to filing this form with the AAA in accordance with its rules and procedures, you must send a copy of the completed form to CDBV at 9600 Great Hills Trail, Austin, TX 78759, ATTN: Legal Department (the “Notice Address“).
c. The arbitration will be conducted by the AAA under its rules and procedures, including the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules (as applicable), as modified by this section. The AAA’s rules are available at http://www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by sending a written request for the rules to the Notice Address.
d. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. The arbitrator will decide the substance of all claims in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas, including recognized principles of equity, and will honor all claims of privilege recognized by law. The arbitrator will not be bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving different users but is bound by rulings in prior arbitrations involving you to the extent required by applicable law or regulation.
e. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the applicable AAA rules, unless otherwise stated in this section. To the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds the cost of filing a lawsuit, CDBV will pay the additional cost. We will also reimburse fees invoiced by AAA, including filing fees and arbitrator and hearing expenses, for claims totaling less than $10,000. For claims at or above $10,000, if the arbitrator finds the arbitration to be non-frivolous, CDBV will pay the fees invoiced by AAA, including filing fees and arbitrator and hearing expenses.
f. 30-Day 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 (“Opt-Out Notice“) (i) by email to legal@NextPass.io with the subject line, “MANDATORY ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER OPT-OUT” or (ii) by mail at the Notice Address. The Opt-Out Notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of (1) the Effective Date of these Terms; or (2) the first date that you used the App that contained any versions of the Terms that included this version of the mandatory arbitration and class action waiver, whichever is later. Otherwise, you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with these Terms. To be effective, all Opt-Out Notices must contain your full name, address, and signature. If you opt out of these arbitration and class action waiver provisions, CDBV also will not be bound by them, but all other provisions of these Terms will continue to apply. Opting out of the arbitration and class action waiver provisions has no effect on any previous, other, or future arbitration agreements that you may enter with us.
g. If we change this Arbitration Agreement or class action waiver provision of these Terms after the date you first agreed to the Terms or to any subsequent changes to the Terms, you may reject any such change by providing us with written notice of such rejection within thirty (30) days of the date such change becomes effective.

23. Time to File Claims; Single Recovery

Your continued use of the App, or any materials or services accessible through it, after the modified Terms are posted means you accept the modifications.

Unless the context clearly indicates to the contrary, in these Terms (a) the plural includes the singular and the singular includes the plural; (b) “and” and “or” are each used both conjunctively and disjunctively; (c) “any,” “all,” “each,” or “every” means “any and all,” and “each and every”; (d) “includes” and “including” are each “without limitation”; (e) “herein,” “hereof,” “hereunder” and other similar compounds of the word “here” refer to these Terms as a whole and not to any particular paragraph, subparagraph, section or subsection; and (f) all pronouns and any variations thereof will be deemed to refer to the masculine, feminine, neuter, singular or plural as the identity of the entities or persons referred to may require.
27. No Third Party Beneficiaries.
Other than the CDBV Indemnitees and the App Stores, no other person or entity will be third-party beneficiaries to the Terms; provided, however, our right to enter into, rescind or terminate any variation, waiver or settlement under these Terms is not subject to the consent of any third party.
