collectively, the non-emergency transport networked dispatch solution located at https://www.joineta.com/ (the “Website”), the mobile app known as joinETA.com (the “App”), and/or any related services, sales,
events, applications, and technology platforms.
By using or accessing the Platform, you acknowledge that you understand this Agreement and accept all of its terms. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS
AGREEMENT, YOU MAY NOT USE OR ACCESS THE PLATFORM. NOTE THAT THIS AGREEMENT LIMITS HOW CLAIMS YOU AND THE COMPANY HAVE AGAINST EACH OTHER CAN BE BROUGHT. THESE PROVISIONS REQUIRE YOU TO SUBMIT CLAIMS YOU HAVE AGAINST THE COMPANY TO BINDING ARBITRATION.
The Platform provides a collaborative contract management system developed to help provide transparency and real-time feedback to the Non-Emergent Transportation (NEMT) industry. By bundling
advanced vehicle location, fleet management, and dispatch capabilities, the Platform will reduce the amount of software and hardware providers have to use to operate their day-to-day business. Our Platform reduces
phone calls and provides partners with information about each patient’s location and the estimated time of arrival of their requested transportation. The Platform includes a marketplace where individuals who seek
non-emergent transportation to certain medically-related destinations (“Patients”) can be matched with ambulances that can drive them to those destinations (“Ambulances”). Patients are sometimes referred to
herein as “Users,” and each User shall create a User account that enables access to the Platform. Each person may only create one User account, and Company reserves the right to shut down any additional
accounts. As a User, you authorize the Company to match you with an Ambulance based on factors such as your location, the pickup time, your destination, user preferences, and Platform efficiency, and to cancel
an existing match and rematch based on the same considerations. For purposes of this Agreement, the driving services provided by Ambulances to Patients matched through the Platform shall be referred to
collectively as the “Services”. Any decision by a User to accept Services is a decision made in such User’s sole discretion.
The Platform may only be used by individuals who can form legally binding contracts; Individuals under the age of 18 who desire to use the Services must do so through a parent or guardian who is registered as an
authorized User. The Platform is not available to Users who have had their User account temporarily or permanently deactivated. By becoming a User, you represent and warrant you are at least 18 years old and
that you have the right, authority and capacity to enter into and abide by the terms of this Agreement. You may not allow other persons to use your User account, and you agree that you are the sole authorized user
of your account.
You will have to register to access the Platform. You agree to keep your password confidential and will be responsible for all use of your account and password. We reserve the right to remove, reclaim, or change
a username you select if we determine, in our sole discretion, that such username is inappropriate, obscene, or otherwise objectionable.
As a Patient, you understand that your use of the Services may result in charges to you (“Charges”). Charges include ambulance transport fees and other applicable fees, tolls, surcharges, and taxes as set
forth on our Website (https://www.joineta.com/feeschedule). The Company has the authority and reserves the right to determine and modify pricing by posting pricing terms to the Website or quoting you a price for
a specific ride when you make a request. Pricing may vary based on the service you request. You are responsible for reviewing the Website or price quote within the App and shall be responsible for all Charges
incurred under your User account regardless of your awareness of such Charges or the amounts thereof. If all or a portion of your Charges are covered by insurance, you remain responsible to the Company for
the Charges and must submit a claim to your insurance provider for reimbursement.
All Charges are facilitated through a third-party payment processing service. Charges shall only be made through the Platform. Cash payments are prohibited. Your payment of Charges to Company satisfies your
payment obligation for your use of the Platform and Services. All Charges are non-refundable. This norefund policy shall apply regardless of your decision to terminate usage of the Platform, any disruption to
the Platform or Services, or any other reason. The Company may seek authorization of your selected payment method to verify the payment method, ensure the Charges will be covered, and protect against
unauthorized behavior. The authorization is not a charge, however it may reduce your available credit by the authorization amount until your bank’s next processing cycle. Should the amount of our authorization
exceed the total funds on deposit in your account, you may be subject to overdraft of NSF charges by the bank issuing your debit or prepaid card. We cannot be held responsible for these charges and cannot assist
you in recovering them from your issuing bank.
