How do these terms of service apply to me?

(Company No. CS201610651) (the “Company”). By using this Service (as defined below), you agree that you have read, understood, accepted and agreed with this Terms of Use.

The terms and conditions stated herein (collectively, the “Terms of Use” or this “Agreement”) constitute a legal agreement between you and DBDOYC INC. (Company No. CS201610651) (the “Company”). By using the website, web service or mobile application (the ”Application”) supplied to you by the Company and downloading, installing or using any associated software supplied by the Company (“the Software”) which overall purpose is to enable persons seeking transportation services to certain destinations to be matched with third party independent transportation providers, drivers and vehicle operators (collectively, the “Service”), you hereby expressly acknowledge and agree to be bound by the Terms of Use, and any future amendments and additions to this Terms of Use as published from time to time at https://angkas.com/ or through the Application.

If you do not agree to all of the terms of service, or if you are not eligible or authorized to enter into this agreement, then do not use or download or otherwise access any part of the service. Using all or any part of the service will constitute acceptance and create a legally enforceable contract under which you agree to be bound by all of the terms of service, without modification.

The company is a technology company that does not provide transportation or delivery services. It is up to the third party independent transportation providers (the “transportation service provider”) to offer transportation services to you and it is up to you to accept such transportation services via the application. The service of the company is to link you with such transportation service providers. The company is neither responsible nor liable for the acts, negligence and/or omissions of any delivery service provided to you by the transportation service provider.

The Company reserves the right to modify, vary and change the Terms of Use or its policies relating to the Service at any time as it deems fit. Such modifications, variations and/or changes to the Terms of Use or its policies relating to the Service shall be effective upon the posting of an updated version at http://www.angkas.com. It is your responsibility to review the Terms of Use regularly if you continue to use the Service whereupon the continued use of the Service after any such changes, whether or not reviewed by you, shall constitute your consent and acceptance to such changes.

Please review the arbitration agreement set forth below carefully, as it will require you to resolve disputes with the company on an individual basis through final and binding arbitration. By entering this agreement, you expressly acknowledge that you have read and understand all of the terms of this agreement and have taken time to consider the consequences of this important decision.

By agreeing to the terms, you agree that you are required to resolve any claim that you may have against the company on an individual basis in arbitration, as set forth in this arbitration agreement. This will preclude you from bringing any class, collective, or representative action against the company, and also preclude you from participating in or recovering relief under any current or future class, collective, consolidated, or representative action brought against the company by someone else. The terms of the agreement is discussed in detail in the section – how this agreement is handled.

Unless expressly disclosed to the transportation service provider and disclosure is recorded by the system, the company shall conclusively assume that a woman passenger is not pregnant. However, the transportation service provider has the discretion to refuse transportation to a conspicuously pregnant passenger but solely on account of safety reasons. The transportation service provider may also refuse transportation to a passenger whose physical weight renders the transportation service unsafe and/or unstable but only after reasonably taking into account the capacity of the motorcycle involved. The transportation service provider may also refuse to provide service on other legitimate grounds, such as if the passenger is inebriated, sleepy or in such physical condition that he/she cannot sit upright or maintain his/her balance, or would have difficulty doing so, during the course of the ride.
