The following Sections apply if you rent a car using the DriveShare marketplace:
Information provided to DriveShare:
As part of establishing and maintaining your status as an authorized renter through the DriveShare marketplace, you will need to provide certain information about yourself and your driving record. You understand and agree that you must meet the eligibility requirements at all times that you use a car through the marketplace; if, after initial approval, you later fail to meet the eligibility requirements (e.g., you have a subsequent driving violation that would make you ineligible), you are required to inform us of the change in status, and refrain from renting or driving cars via DriveShare. As stated above, you have authorized DriveShare to obtain your driving record and other applicable reports at any time, to verify that you meet the eligibility requirements of the marketplace. You understand and agree that DriveShare may periodically request additional verification of eligibility and proper verification of usage from you as a renter, and that if you fail to provide satisfactory evidence of your continued compliance with this Agreement, DriveShare may terminate your membership immediately. DriveShare may, subject to these Terms of Service and the Privacy Notice, retain and continue to use for its own internal purposes any information previously provided by you. All your information will be held and treated in accordance with the Privacy Notice. To note, any failure to disclose car-related violations, accidents or other material information is grounds for immediate rejection or termination of your membership, effective as of such failure.
Fees and Losses:
You are responsible for paying all fees when they come due in connection with your use of the marketplace and the Services. You authorize DriveShare to charge any payment cards on file in your account for all amounts due, including but not limited to, security deposits, processing fees, usage fees, fines/penalties, deductibles, and damages, and you furthermore represent and warrant that you have the right to make this authorization. You will be responsible for payment of usage fees from the start of your rental period until the time you return the car. You will be responsible for all of the costs relating to any citations and fines (e.g. tolls, parking tickets, towing fines) incurred during the rental period (and after, if the car has not been parked in an authorized and legal parking space). Regarding damage, losses, or other liabilities, you acknowledge that any personal insurance you have available to you (e.g., personal auto insurance, insurance from credit cards, etc.) will be the primary source of funds for your liabilities hereunder and the protection offered by DriveShare DriveShare will not be available to you until your personal insurance has been exhausted. Additionally, DriveShare protection may not be available to you in the event you breach your obligations under this Agreement (e.g. if you drive a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol or otherwise violate any of the DriveShare User Policies). Subject to the coverage and protection available to you, you acknowledge that you are fully responsible for any damage, losses or other liabilities relating to your rental activities through the DriveShare DriveShare marketplace. You agree that in the event damage is reported, DriveShare may immediately charge you up to the amount stipulated with the protection package that you selected when you booked the car. Nothing in this Agreement is intended to limit your responsibilities or DriveShare’s legal rights in connection with your use of the marketplace (or any vehicles rented through the marketplace) or any Services. You acknowledge that DriveShare does require and hold a deposit as part of the reservation of a car.
Use of the Car:
When you rent a car through DriveShare, you may use the car only for your personal use and not for any commercial purposes (e.g. running a taxi service). You must exercise reasonable care in your use of the car. In the event DriveShare has any concern about your use of a vehicle, DriveShare may terminate your reservation in its discretion at any time and require the return of the vehicle, including recovering the vehicle on behalf of the owner. You are required to wear seatbelts during the operation of the car and to require that all of your passengers wear seatbelts as well. You are also required to meet any laws or regulations concerning car seats and other protections for young passengers. The DriveShare User Policies section provides a list of Prohibited Uses of any car rented through the DriveShare marketplace. The list isn’t meant to be exhaustive. If you have any concerns about your planned use, please contact DriveShare customer service at email@example.com. You will be fully responsible for any claims, loss or damage related to your misuse of a car. Renters also acknowledge that using a vehicle in a prohibited manner may lower the renter’s liability coverage to state minimum limits or nullify coverage, where allowed by applicable state law, and may furthermore nullify any comprehensive or collision protection.
Condition of the Car:
You understand that, unless otherwise specifically noted, the cars offered though the DriveShare marketplace are owned by third parties and are not owned or maintained by DriveShare. Each owner is responsible for maintaining and repairing the car(s) they offer through the marketplace in a roadworthy condition and is ultimately responsible for the condition of the car at the beginning of the rental period. Please complete a visual inspection of any rented car before you begin your use of the car. If you find damage in your initial inspection, you must notify DriveShare immediately, to avoid any confusion about your role in the cause of the damage, or you may be held liable for any damage. As an alternative, you and the owner can jointly agree and document such agreement, with supporting photographs, of any pre-existing damage for which you as the renter should not be liable. If you find damage on your initial inspection and fail to report it, DriveShare may assume that the damage occurred during your rental period. If, after your initial inspection, you believe that the car is not safe enough to drive, please do not use the car; in that event, please contact the DriveShare team immediately at 1-877-922-1702.
You must immediately report any damage to the car you are using to DriveShare at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 1-877-922-1702, and if there has been a collision, to the police as well. You will need to use all reasonable efforts to secure evidence from any available witnesses and to provide DriveShare with a written description of the incident and any other information DriveShare may request, including identity and insurance information of any parties involved in the incident. You are also required to cooperate in any loss investigation conducted by DriveShare, our claims administrators, or insurers. After an incident, you may not continue to use the car unless you have the explicit permission of DriveShare staff. Failure to timely report an incident may reduce or invalidate protection from DriveShare.
In addition to the terms of the Protection section above, you understand and agree that DriveShare will provide primary liability insurance for the owner and that renters will not look to an owner’s policy for coverage in accordance with DriveShare User Policies and all available state car sharing statutes. DriveShare will provide certain liability insurance and protection against physical damage losses as described in this Agreement and the DriveShare User Policies. You are fully responsible for paying any damages not covered by insurance, as well as insurance deductibles, fees, expenses, liens, and fines arising out of your use of a DriveShare car. If DriveShare advances any payment on your behalf, you will continue to be responsible for such amounts and will adhere to DriveShare’s schedule for re-payment of those amounts to DriveShare.
DriveShare provides a marketplace to allow car owners and renters to connect in an easy and efficient way. Except as expressly provided in this Agreement, DriveShare and the applicable car owner do not intend to take liability with respect to your use of the DriveShare marketplace, the Services, or the applicable car(s).
AS SUCH, YOU WAIVE ANY AND ALL RIGHTS YOU HAVE TO SUE OR MAKE CLAIMS AGAINST DRIVESHARE AND ITS RESPECTIVE DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, AGENTS, OR EMPLOYEES (THE “DRIVESHARE PARTIES”) AND THE CAR OWNER FOR ANY DAMAGES OR LOSSES ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THIS MARKETPLACE OR ANY SERVICES INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, A CAR NOT BEING AVAILABLE WHEN IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE, ANY MALFUNCTION OF OR DEFICIENCY IN A CAR, ANY BREACH OF WARRANTY OR OTHER OBLIGATION BY ANY MANUFACTURER OR OTHER THIRD PARTY, ANY PERSONAL INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE SUFFERED BY YOU OR ANY OF YOUR PASSENGERS AND, IN THE CASE OF THE DRIVESHARE PARTIES, ANY ACTIONS OR INACTION OF THE CAR OWNER. YOUR WAIVER DOES NOT EXTEND TO ANY DAMAGES OR LOSSES RESULTING FROM ANY PARTY’S GROSS NEGLIGENCE OR WILLFUL MISCONDUCT.
IF YOU ARE A CALIFORNIA RESIDENT, YOU WAIVE CALIFORNIA CIVIL CODE §1542, WHICH STATES: “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 following Sections apply if you rent out your car through the DriveShare marketplace:
Information Given at Registration:
When you sign up for DriveShare, you will identify a particular passenger car(s) that you want to list for rent through the marketplace. Each car must meet the requirements provided by DriveShare on the DriveShare site from time to time. You may only use the marketplace in connection with cars that you own or otherwise have all the necessary rights and permissions to rent out.
Once you accept a reservation and it is booked, you are required to make the car available as expected by the renter. You must also include the general location of the car on your profile page and ensure that the car is available at that location at the beginning of the rental period.
You will have the ability to set and revise the vehicle’s rental rates as you choose. DriveShare will pay you the amount collected from those who rent your car, less the applicable fees payable to DriveShare, as well as any taxes or similar charges that DriveShare collects. You acknowledge that DriveShare’s fees may change from time to time. A current fee schedule can be found at DriveShare Fees Policy. The fees that apply to you will be the same as posted on the DriveShare site at the time of the applicable rental. Please note that you are fully responsible for all taxes relating to or arising out of your activities under this Agreement. DriveShare will need certain information from you to ensure we can report income paid to you as required by law. DriveShare may withhold payments until we have received that information from you.
You are required to regularly check your car for any defects in its operations or safety and have your car inspected as described in the Maintenance Policy. You promise that, always, your car will be in safe and roadworthy condition, in good mechanical condition, and in full compliance with all applicable state inspection and registration requirements. You agree to respond to any recall or similar safety notices and to complete any recommended action promptly. If DriveShare believes that your car does not conform to reasonable standards, DriveShare will notify you and reserves the right to refrain from listing your car on the marketplace until its concerns have been resolved.
DriveShare may, from time to time and at its expense, require that certain labels or other markings, be temporarily affixed to your car while you participate in the marketplace. DriveShare will provide instructions for removal of those labels or decals in connection with any termination of your participation in the marketplace.
If you believe that a renter has caused any damage to your car, you are required to report that damage as soon as you become aware of it (and in any event, no more than 24 hours after the reservation) and to provide reasonable cooperation in our investigation of the damage. In any event, with each break in rental activity you need to inspect your car and report any damage that you believe was caused by a renter. Based on its investigation, DriveShare will reasonably determine whether the damage was caused during the renter’s use of the car. If it was, DriveShare will reimburse you for the loss as described below. If DriveShare is not given prompt notice as described in this paragraph, or if you do not provide reasonable cooperation in our investigation, we may not be able to determine the cause. In that case, you agree that we may decline any financial responsibility for such damage.
Subject to all the terms of this Agreement, during each rental period, DriveShare will bear the risk of theft, destruction, or damage with respect to your car. In the event of a loss that is covered by this Agreement, DriveShare will either pay you the reasonable and actual expenses of repair of the car or, if that amount is greater than the agreed cash value of your car, pay you the agreed cash value. Note, if DriveShare insurer chooses to pay you the agreed cash value for your car, you will be required to transfer title to the car to DriveShare or its agent. The standard for the car’s “agreed cash value” will be the amount agreed upon during the listing process and subsequent approved adjustments or other industry-accepted, comparable source as determined by DriveShare or its third-party claims administrators in their discretion. There are some exceptions to DriveShare obligations under this Section: DriveShare is not responsible for any personal property that is taken from your car or damaged during a rental period. We recommend that you remove all personal property before making the car available for a reservation. In addition, you should expect normal wear and tear on your car, including minor scrapes and dings, in connection with your participation in the marketplace. To the extent allowed by applicable law, DriveShare will not reimburse you for normal wear and tear to your car. Furthermore, DriveShare will only provide protection for “comprehensive” losses due to acts of nature (e.g., flood, earthquake, severe weather, etc.) that equal the corresponding comprehensive coverage you have in effect immediately prior to the reservation period, as evidenced by valid written documentation of your existing insurance.
Other Insurance and Legal Matters:
In addition to the terms provided above, You agree to comply with any and all applicable laws and regulations, including registration and minimum insurance requirements for your car. There is personal vehicle sharing legislation that may apply to you; for more information contact DriveShare at email@example.com. With respect to any insurance policy procured by DriveShare for your benefit, you hereby appoint DriveShare as your attorney-in-fact solely for the purpose of filing claims, receiving payment and otherwise administering that policy. You also promise to maintain any proof of insurance in your car during every registration period, as requested by DriveShare. DriveShare may obtain insurance through a third-party provider or may choose to self-insure (meaning DriveShare takes on part or all of the insurance obligations itself, subject to all applicable laws and regulations). As part of your participation in the marketplace, you must maintain your own insurance policy and meet any minimum insurance levels required by law. You agree to provide DriveShare with information regarding your policy’s coverage as may be requested from time to time. You must inform DriveShare promptly in the event information previously provided changes. Except with respect to losses to be paid by DriveShare as described above, you will be fully responsible for any losses or damages suffered by any party as the result of your activities under this Agreement.
In the event of any claim for a loss or injury that occurs during the use of your car by a DriveShare renter (or by DriveShare itself), DriveShare will defend and indemnify you against such claims as required by applicable law. In connection with any indemnified claim, you are required to: (a) give DriveShare prompt written notice of the claim; (b) allow DriveShare sole control over the defense of the claim; and (c) provide DriveShare reasonable cooperation in its defense of the claim, at DriveShare’s expense.

DriveShare LLC (the “Company”) has engaged Checkr, Inc. to obtain a consumer report and/or investigative consumer report for driver verification purposes. Checkr Inc. will provide a background investigation as a pre-condition of your engagement with the Company and in compliance with federal and state employment laws.
Rights under the FCRA:
The federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (“FCRA”) promotes the accuracy, fairness, and privacy of information in the files of consumer reporting agencies. There are many types of consumer reporting agencies, including credit bureaus and specialty agencies (such as agencies that sell information about check writing histories, medical records, and rental history records). Here is a summary of your major rights under the FCRA. For more information, including information about additional rights, go to www.consumerfinance.gov/learnmore or write to: Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, 1700 G Street N.W., Washington, DC 20552.
You must be told if information in your file has been used against you. Anyone who uses a credit report or another type of consumer report to deny your application for credit, insurance, or employment – or to take another adverse action against you – must tell you, and must give you the name, address, and phone number of the agency that provided the information.
You have the right to know what is in your file. You may request and obtain all the information about you in the files of a consumer reporting agency (your “file disclosure”). You will be required to provide proper identification, which may include your Social Security number. In many cases, the disclosure will be free. You are entitled to a free file disclosure if:
a person has taken adverse action against you because of information in your credit report;
you are the victim of identity theft and place a fraud alert in your file; o your file contains inaccurate information as a result of fraud; you are on public assistance;
you are unemployed but expect to apply for employment within 60 days.
In addition, all consumers are entitled to one free disclosure every 12 months upon request from each nationwide credit bureau and from nationwide specialty consumer reporting agencies. See www.consumerfinance.gov/learnmore for additional information.
You have the right to ask for a credit score. Credit scores are numerical summaries of your creditworthiness based on information from credit bureaus. You may request a credit score from consumer reporting agencies that create scores or distribute scores used in residential real property loans, but you will have to pay for it. In some mortgage transactions, you will receive credit score information for free from the mortgage lender.
You have the right to dispute incomplete or inaccurate information. If you identify information in your file that is incomplete or inaccurate, and report it to the consumer reporting agency, the agency must investigate unless your dispute is frivolous. See www.consumerfinance.gov/learnmore for an explanation of dispute procedures.
Consumer reporting agencies must correct or delete inaccurate, incomplete, or unverifiable information. Inaccurate, incomplete or unverifiable information must be removed or corrected, usually within 30 days. However, a consumer reporting agency may continue to report information it has verified as accurate.
Consumer reporting agencies may not report outdated negative information. In most cases, a consumer reporting agency may not report negative information that is more than seven years old, or bankruptcies that are more than 10 years old.
Access to your file is limited. A consumer reporting agency may provide information about you only to people with a valid need - usually to consider an application with a creditor, insurer, employer, landlord, or other business. The FCRA specifies those with a valid need for access.
You must give your consent for reports to be provided to employers. A consumer reporting agency may not give out information about you to your employer, or a potential employer, without your written consent given to the employer. Written consent generally is not required in the trucking industry. For more information, go to www.consumerfinance.gov/learnmore.
You may limit “prescreened” offers of credit and insurance you get based on information in your credit report. Unsolicited “prescreened” offers for credit and insurance must include a toll-free phone number you can call if you choose to remove your name and address from the lists these offers are based on. You may opt out with the nationwide credit bureaus at 1-888-5-OPTOUT (1-888-567-8688).
You may seek damages from violators. If a consumer reporting agency, or, in some cases, a user of consumer reports or a furnisher of information to a consumer reporting agency violates the FCRA, you may be able to sue in state or federal court.
Identity theft victims and active-duty military personnel have additional rights. For more information, visit www.consumerfinance.gov/learnmore.
States may enforce the FCRA, and many states have their own consumer reporting laws. In some cases, you may have more rights under state law. For more information, contact your state or local consumer protection agency or your state Attorney General. For information about your federal rights, contact:
DriveShare LLC. (“the Company”) may obtain information about you from a third-party consumer reporting agency for verification purposes. Thus, you may be the subject of a “consumer report” and/or an “investigative consumer report” which may include information about your character, general reputation, personal characteristics, and/or mode of living. These reports may contain information regarding your motor vehicle records (“driving records”), criminal history, or other background checks.
You have the right, upon written request made within a reasonable time, to request whether a consumer report has been run about you, and disclosure of the nature and scope of any investigative consumer report and to request a copy of your report. Please be advised that the nature and scope of the most common form of investigative consumer report is an MVR history or verification. These searches will be conducted by Checkr, Inc., 2505 Mariposa St. San Francisco, CA 94110 | 844-824-3247 | applicant.checkr.com. The scope of this disclosure is all-encompassing, however, allowing the Company to obtain from any outside organization all manner of consumer reports throughout the course of your engagement to the extent permitted by law.

Only if you cannot identify yourself with such information may the CRA require additional information concerning your employment and personal or family history to verify your identity.

This written explanation will be provided whenever a file is provided to you for visual inspection. You may be accompanied by one other person of your choosing, who must furnish reasonable identification. An CRA may require you to furnish a written statement granting permission to the CRA to discuss your file in such person’s presence.
Please email email@example.com if you would like to receive a copy of an investigative consumer report or consumer credit report at no charge if one is obtained by the Company whenever you have a right to receive such a copy under California law.
