If the Customer requires the use of a purchase order or purchase order number, the Customer (a) must provide the purchase order number at the time of purchase and (b) agrees that any terms and conditions on a Customer purchase order will not apply to these Terms and are void.

7.3 Credit Card Payment
KEEPTRUCKIN MAY SUBMIT PERIODIC CHARGES (E.G., MONTHLY, RENEWALS, ADDITIONAL ORDERS, AND FEES) WITHOUT FURTHER AUTHORIZATION FROM CUSTOMER UNTIL CUSTOMER PROVIDES PRIOR NOTICE (RECEIPT OF WHICH IS CONFIRMED BY KEEPTRUCKIN) THAT CUSTOMER WILL TERMINATE THIS AUTHORIZATION OR WISHES TO CHANGE THE PAYMENT METHOD. SUCH NOTICE WILL NOT AFFECT CHARGES SUBMITTED BEFORE KEEPTRUCKIN REASONABLY COULD ACT.
7.4 Free Trials and Other Promotions
Any free trial or other promotion that provides access to Services must be used within the specified time of the trial. If KeepTruckin has provided Hardware as part of a trial at no cost to Customer (the “Trial Hardware”), and Customer does not wish to continue its Services at the end of the trial, Customer must return the Trial Hardware within thirty (30) days of the end of the trial period. If Customer does not return the Trial Hardware within such timeframe, KeepTruckin may bill and invoice Customer Replacement Fees for such Trial Hardware, and Customer is responsible to pay KeepTruckin for such Replacement Fees. IF THE CUSTOMER IS IN A TRIAL PERIOD AND THE CUSTOMER HAS ALREADY PROVIDED A METHOD OF PAYMENT TO KEEPTRUCKIN FOR THE KEEPTRUCKIN SERVICES, KEEPTRUCKIN MAY CHARGE AUTOMATICALLY AT THE END OF THE TRIAL, UNLESS THE CUSTOMER NOTIFIES KEEPTRUCKIN THAT THE CUSTOMER WANTS TO CANCEL.
7.5 Discontinuation of Services
If Customer chooses to discontinue, cancel or terminate any Services for which Customer has agreed to in an Order Form before the end of the Subscription Term agreed to in such Order Form, KeepTruckin shall have the right to immediately invoice Customer or bill Customer’s authorized credit card for any balance due for the remainder of the Subscription Term, including any Replacement Fees and Restoration Fees.
7.6 Late Payments
Past due amounts are subject to a finance charge equal to the lower of 1.5% per month or the highest rate permitted by law from the payment due date until paid in full. Customer will be responsible for all reasonable expenses (including attorneys’ fees) incurred by KeepTruckin in collecting past due amounts. If Customer’s fees are past due (including any fees owing to any third party equipment financing company), KeepTruckin may suspend the Services automatically and provide notice of termination for material breach.
7.7 Billing Disputes
If Customer disputes any invoices or charges, Customer must let KeepTruckin know within sixty (60) days after the date that KeepTruckin invoices or bills Customer for the disputed amount.
Customer is responsible for all taxes, except those directly relating to KeepTruckin’s net income, gross receipts, or capital stock. KeepTruckin will invoice Customer for sales tax when required to do so and Customer will pay the tax unless Customer provides KeepTruckin with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority.
7.9 Future Functionality
Customer agrees that it has not relied on the availability of any future functionality of the Services or any other future product or service in executing these Terms or any Order Form. Customer acknowledges that information provided by KeepTruckin regarding future functionality should not be relied upon to make a purchase decision.

This is our disclaimer of our legal liability for the quality, reliability, or safety of our Services and Hardware.
CUSTOMER AND END USER(S) ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT THE KEEPTRUCKIN SERVICES ARE A DRIVER AID ONLY. THEY ARE NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR A SAFE, CONSCIENTIOUS DRIVER.

It is Customer’s and End User’s sole responsibility to maintain compliance standards for IFTA filing purposes.
10.5 Wireless Providers
Customer, End User(s) or KeepTruckin may use a third-party provider for cellular and wireless connectivity, including WiFi Hotspot connectivity (“Wireless Service Carriers“). KeepTruckin cannot and does not guarantee uninterrupted or continuous service or specific area coverage and is not responsible for downtime or loss of use of the Services caused by a Wireless Service Carrier’s lack of provision of such services.
CUSTOMER AND END USER(S) UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT CUSTOMER AND END USER(S): (1) HAVE NO CONTRACTUAL RELATIONSHIP WITH THE WIRELESS SERVICE CARRIERS, (2) ARE NOT A THIRD PARTY BENEFICIARY OF ANY AGREEMENT BETWEEN KEEPTRUCKIN AND THE WIRELESS SERVICE CARRIERS, (3) THAT THE WIRELESS SERVICE CARRIERS HAVE NO LIABILITY OF ANY KIND TO CUSTOMER OR END USERS, WHETHER FOR BREACH OF CONTRACT, WARRANTY, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY IN TORT OR OTHERWISE, (4) THAT MESSAGES OR DATA TRANSMISSIONS MAY BE DELAYED, DELETED OR NOT DELIVERED, AND 911 CALLS MAY NOT BE COMPLETED, AND (5) THE WIRELESS SERVICE CARRIERS CANNOT GUARANTEE THE SECURITY OF WIRELESS TRANSMISSIONS AND WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY LACK OF SECURITY RELATING TO THE USE OF THE SERVICES.

This describes your obligations to indemnify us for third party claims.
11.2 Customer and End User Release
Because KeepTruckin is not party to any agreements between Customer or End User and any third parties, in the event that Customer or End User has a dispute with End Users, Fleet Users, Fleet Administrators, Motor Carriers, operators of Non-KeepTruckin Products, or other third parties, as applicable (each, an “Other Party“), Customer and/or End User agree to address such disputes directly with the Other Party in question and Customer and End User(s) release KeepTruckin (and our officers, directors, employees, agents, investors, licensors, distributors, and affiliates from any and all claims, demands, or damages (actual, exemplary, special, punitive, or consequential)) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such dispute.
In consideration of the covenants under these Terms, Customer, on behalf of itself and its End Users (“Releasors”) hereby irrevocably and forever waives, releases, and discharges KeepTruckin and its affiliates, officers, directors, employees, agents, successors and assigns (“Releasees”) from any claims, suits, damages, losses, and liabilities of any kind that the Releasors had, now have, or may ever have against the Releasees in connection with disputes arising from, relating to, or in connection with an Other Party, during and after the Services Term. The Releasors have been made aware of and understand all rights they may have arising under California Civil Code Section 1542 (or any analogous state, federal, or international statute or principle) against KeepTruckin, which California Civil Code Section 1542 provides that:
A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS OR HER FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM OR HER MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS OR HER SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.
The Releasors expressly, knowingly, and intentionally waive any and all rights, benefits, and protections of California Civil Code 1542 (or any analogous state, federal, or international statute or principle). Customer and End User(s) acknowledge they have had an opportunity to be advised by counsel concerning the effect and import of these Terms under California Civil Code 1542 and other legal requirements. The parties acknowledge and agree that this waiver is an essential and material term of these Terms.
If you use any Non-KeepTruckin Products, you agree that KeepTruckin is not a party to your agreements with the owners of such Non-KeepTruckin Products and you release us from any claims or disputes relating to such Non-KeepTruckin Products.
12. Limitation of Liability
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, KEEPTRUCKIN AND ITS AFFILIATES, LICENSORS, AND DISTRIBUTORS WILL NOT BE LIABLE UNDER THESE TERMS OR FROM USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE KEEPTRUCKIN SERVICES FOR (A) ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, (B) LOSS OF USE, DATA, BUSINESS, OR PROFITS (IN EACH CASE WHETHER DIRECT OR INDIRECT), OR (C) DAMAGES FOR PERSONAL OR BODILY INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE, REGARDLESS OF THE LEGAL THEORY AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER KEEPTRUCKIN HAS BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, EVEN IF A LIMITED REMEDY SET FORTH IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
These are the limits of legal liability we may have to you.
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, KEEPTRUCKIN AND ITS AFFILIATES, LICENSORS, AND DISTRIBUTORS WILL NOT BE LIABLE UNDER THESE TERMS OR FROM USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE KEEPTRUCKIN SERVICES FOR AGGREGATE AMOUNTS THAT EXCEED THE GREATER OF (A) $100 USD OR (B) THE AMOUNT CUSTOMER HAS PAID OR IS PAYABLE FOR USE OF THE KEEPTRUCKIN SERVICES IN THE SIX (6) MONTH PERIOD PRIOR TO THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO THE LIABILITY. THE LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN KEEPTRUCKIN AND CUSTOMER.
Some of the above limitations or exclusions may not be allowed in your jurisdiction and may not apply to you. The terms of this limitation of liability will apply to the extent permitted by applicable law.
13. Arbitration Agreement
13.1 Agreement to Arbitrate
Unless otherwise agreed to by both parties in writing or set forth in the “Exceptions to the Agreement to Arbitrate”, you and KeepTruckin agree that, in order to expedite and control the cost of any disputes, any legal or equitable claim arising out of or relating in any way to the Services, these Terms, and this Arbitration Agreement (“Claim“) will be determined by binding arbitration or in small claims court as further described below.
In the unlikely event we end up in a legal dispute, KeepTruckin and you agree to resolve it using arbitration (or in the courts located in San Francisco, CA if arbitration does not apply to the dispute or you opt out).
13.2 Informal Dispute Resolution
Except with respect to Claims listed in “Exceptions to the Agreement to Arbitrate” below, you and KeepTruckin agree to attempt to resolve any disputes informally. You and KeepTruckin agree to provide notice to the other party and attempt to resolve the dispute through discussion (“Informal Negotiation Period“). After 30 days, either party may bring a formal proceeding.
13.3 Arbitration Notice
If either you or KeepTruckin chooses to start an arbitration proceeding, the party initiating the proceeding will send a notice of its Claim (“Arbitration Notice“) to the other party. You will send the Arbitration Notice by email to firstname.lastname@example.org and by U.S. mail to: KeepTruckin, 55 Hawthorne Street, Suite 400, San Francisco, CA 94105.
13.4 Arbitration Procedures
Any arbitration proceedings between you and KeepTruckin will be conducted under the commercial rules then in effect for the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), except with respect to the provision of this agreement which bars class actions in Section 13.8 and any specific rules and procedures explicitly discussed in this Section 13.4.
The award rendered by the arbitrator(s) shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable costs of expert and other witness and reasonable attorneys’ fees. For claims less than $10,000, KeepTruckin will advance to you AAA’s filing fees; provided, however, that such fees must be repaid to KeepTruckin if KeepTruckin prevails in the arbitration. Please see this link for the AAA’s current rules and procedures or contact the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.
13.5 Non-Appearance-Based Arbitration Option
Except with respect to the Exceptions to the Agreement to Arbitrate in Section 13.6, for Claims where the total amount of the award sought in arbitration is less than $10,000, the party seeking the award may choose non-appearance-based arbitration. If non-appearance-based arbitration is elected, the arbitration will be conducted online, by telephone, and/or solely based on written submissions to the arbitrator. The specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating arbitration. Non-appearance-based arbitration involves no personal appearances by parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed to by the parties.
13.6 Exceptions to the Agreement to Arbitrate
Not withstanding the foregoing, the Arbitration Notice requirement and the Informal Negotiation Period do not apply to either law suits solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use of the Services or lawsuits concerning copyrights, trademarks, moral rights, patents, trade secrets, claims of piracy or unauthorized use of the Services.
Either you or KeepTruckin may assert Claims which qualify for small claims court in San Francisco, CA or in any United States county in which you either live or work.
If the Agreement to Arbitrate is found not to apply to your Claim, the parties consent and agree to both venue and personal jurisdiction in the federal and state courts located in San Francisco, CA.
13.7 Opting Out of the Agreement to Arbitrate
You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the binding agreement to arbitrate provided in these Terms by sending written notice of your decision to opt-out to email@example.com or by U.S. Mail to KeepTruckin, 55 Hawthorne Street, Suite 400, San Francisco, CA 94105.

UNLESS YOU AND KEEPTRUCKIN AGREE OTHERWISE, YOU MAY ONLY RESOLVE DISPUTES WITH KEEPTRUCKIN ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS.

NEITHER YOU NOR KEEPTRUCKIN MAY CONSOLIDATE A CLAIM OR CLAIMS AS A PLAINTIFF OR A CLASS MEMBER IN A CLASS ACTION, A CONSOLIDATED ACTION OR A REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. If this specific section is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of Section 13 (Arbitration Agreement) will be deemed void.
Here are some important details about the Terms.
All attachments to the Terms and any Order Forms executed by the parties are hereby incorporated into the Terms by reference. The Terms, including the attachments and Order Forms, constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between KeepTruckin and you regarding the Services, and supersede and replace any and all prior or contemporaneous oral or written agreements between KeepTruckin and you regarding the Services, including any non-disclosure agreements.

If such event continues for more than twenty (20) days, KeepTruckin may cancel unperformed Services upon written notice.
14.10 Relationship of the Parties
The parties are independent contractors. These Terms do not create a partnership, joint venture, or agency relationship between the parties.
KeepTruckin’s failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of those rights.

Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise.
Any ambiguity in the Terms will be interpreted equitably without regard to which party drafted the Terms. “Including” and “include” will be construed to mean “including without limitation.”
