- To reserve, rent and use the mobility service, the customer must have a mobile phone that meets the technical requirements for the app. When downloading the app, it will automatically check whether the mobile phone meets the necessary requirements. 9292 does not guarantee compatibility. The responsibility for the possibility of mobile data communication and any charges relating to data transmission lies with the customer.

- 9292 has the right to refuse a customer’s registration for whatever reason.
Article 3: Booking, entering into and termination of lease agreement
- During the term of the Framework Agreement, activated customers can use their account via the app to make a reservation for an intended rental. A reservation for a rental is only final after confirmation by 9292. Each confirmed rental leads to a separate Rental Agreement under the applicability of the Framework Agreement and these Terms & Conditions of Use.
- The maximum rental time of a means of transport as per the Rental Agreement is 1 (one) day (twenty-four hours). 9292, or the mobility provider on behalf of 9292, is entitled to terminate a Rental Agreement if the maximum rental time has been exceeded.
- The Rental begins with the conclusion of the Rental Agreement and ends when Customer has properly terminated the rental transaction in accordance with the provisions of clause 10 or when 9292 or the mobility provider on behalf of 9292 has terminated the Rental Agreement.
- The customer is obliged to check the means of transport for visible defects, damage and severe soiling or dirt before driving and to report this to 9292 via the customer service department.

Article 4: Driving licence & verification of driving licence
- Some mobility providers require a driving licence. If so, 9292 will carry out a validation check. For these services, the customer must:

b) have a valid driving licence to drive a passenger car (B) or a moped (AM) in the Netherlands;

- Immediately after revocation or loss of the driving licence, the driving licence for the means of transport lapses for the duration of the loss or revocation. The same applies to the duration of a driving ban. The Customer shall immediately report any revocation or restrictions of their driving licence, driving bans taking effect or temporary seizure or temporary suspension of their driving licence to 9292.
Article 5: Rates & payment terms
- The customer agrees to pay prices at the rate applicable at the time of the start of the Rental Agreement.

- If the amount debited is recovered by the bank due to a reason attributable to the customer, the relevant bank charges will be borne by the customer.
- To prevent credit card fraud, 9292 reserves the right to carry out (security) checks at any time. Furthermore, 9292 can, at the time of entering the credit card details, check whether the credit card is registered with the issuer in the customer's name, is registered as lost, stolen, expired and/or the spending limit is sufficient for the intended reservation. Should any suspicion of abuse arise from these checks, 9292 is entitled to suspend and terminate its obligations under the Framework/Rental Agreement without prior notice. If any fraud does turn out to have occurred, 9292 will report this to the police.
- In the event and as long as a Customer fails to fulfil any payment obligation towards 9292 or fails to do so in a timely manner, 9292 shall be entitled to suspend its obligations under the Framework/Rental Agreement.

- Accidents, theft, damages and defects occurring during the rental must be reported immediately by the customer to 9292's customer service.
- The customer must ensure that all accidents or theft involving the means of transport are reported to and recorded by the police. If the police refuse to record the details of an accident, the customer should immediately report this to 9292 customer service and provide proof of this. In such a case, the customer should discuss the further procedure with 9292 customer service and follow its instructions. This procedure applies regardless of whether the accident was caused by the customer or a third party. The customer may only leave the scene of the accident or theft after:
a) the acquisition of the details of the accident or theft by the police has been completed, or, if this is not possible, after 9292's customer service has been informed in accordance therewith, and
b) in consultation with 9292 and any evidence protection and damage limitation measures have been undertaken, and
c), in the event of an accident, the means of transport has been handed over to a towing company, or has otherwise been safely parked or moved by the customer following agreement with 9292.
- In the event of an accident in which the means of transport was involved, the customer may not accept liability or make a similar declaration. Nevertheless, if the customer makes a declaration accepting liability, it shall only apply to the customer personally. Neither 9292 nor mobility provider and (its) insurers are bound by this statement or commitment.
- Regardless of whether an accident or theft was caused by customer or a third party, a claim form will be made available to the customer after reporting the accident or theft. This is usually present in or with the means of transport. This claim form must be returned to 9292 in full within 7 days. If no written claim notification is received by 9292 within this period, the accident or theft cannot be dealt with by the insurance. In this case, 9292 shall be entitled to charge to the customer all costs and damage to persons, objects and vehicles relating to the accident or theft.
- Damage costs relating to damages to the means of transport shall in all cases accrue to 9292 and, to the extent required, the customer will assign the claim for compensation to 9292. If these fees are received by the customer, the customer must pay them to 9292 without receiving a request to do so.
- At 9292's request, the customer shall at all times communicate the exact location of the means of transport and allow the vehicle to be inspected.

2. 9292 cannot be held responsible for items left by the customer or its passengers in, on or over a means of transport.
Article 9: Customer liability, penalties and exclusion from use
- The Customer shall be liable to 9292 for any loss suffered by 9292 as a result of the Customer's failure to comply with any obligation under the Framework/Rental Agreement.
- The customer is liable to 9292 for any damage they have inflicted or caused. This includes (without being exhaustive) damage to or the theft or loss of the means of transport and accessories. In the case of liability of a customer who is not at all or only partially insured, the customer is liable for the uninsured part and the customer indemnifies 9292 against all third party claims.
- In the event of an accident that is the customer’s fault, the customer's liability also extends to incidental damages, such as expert fees, towing costs, depreciation, costs due to lost rental income, lower insurance premiums and administrative costs.
- The means of transport are insured by 9292 or the mobility provider. The amount of the excess per claim or theft and the corresponding conditions are set out in the fee schedule.
- The excess applicable in any case shall be paid by customer to 9292 upon first request.
- The customer is liable to 9292 for the consequences of traffic violations or offences committed by the means of transport. The customer shall pay all resulting penalties and costs and fully indemnifies 9292 against any third party claims. For processing traffic violations (warnings, charges, fines, etc.), the customer must pay a processing fee to 9292 for each incident. The amount of the processing fees are specified in the applicable fee schedule.
- In the event the customer causes an accident outside the work area, the customer will bear the costs arising from the return of the means of transport to the work area after completion of repairs.
- The customer is responsible for terminating the rental within the working area. If the customer drives the means of transport 'empty' (i.e. it no longer has battery capacity) and is currently outside the operating area, the customer shall inform 9292 immediately. The mobility provider will transport the vehicle to the working area as soon as possible. The customer will pay a fee to 9292 for this in accordance with the fee schedule.
- The customer will pay a penalty in accordance with the fee policy if they allow a person other than themselves to use the means of transport, without prejudice to 9292's right to claim damages.
- In case of breach of the Framework Agreement and/or Rental Agreement, 9292 may temporarily or permanently deactivate the relevant account with immediate effect. This exclusion will be communicated to the customer by email.
Article 10: Termination of rental
- If the customer wishes to terminate the rental, they are obliged:
a) to park the means of transport properly and in compliance with traffic regulations in a non-paid parking space in the public area;
b) not to terminate the rental on private property or a business premises (e.g. car parks, back gardens, etc.). The ban also applies to parking spaces for customers of shopping centres, supermarkets, restaurants, etc. The means of transport should be accessible to everyone at all times.
- The rental period can only be terminated:
a) when the means of transport is within the limits of the working area. Working area boundaries can be viewed online in the app. The display in the app is used for orientation and no rights can be derived from it.
b) if a mobile phone/data connection can be obtained at the location of the means of transport. If this is not the case, the means of transport should be parked elsewhere by the customer.
- The end of a rental process is initiated when the customer ends the rental process via the app. When the transport vehicle has confirmed the end of the rental process by locking the central locking system, the rental period has effectively ended. If the customer leaves the means of transport while the rental period is not terminated or if the provisions of Article 10 paragraphs 1 and 2 of these conditions are not met, the rental shall continue at the customer's expense.
- If the rental cannot be terminated, the customer is obliged to report this to 9292 without delay and stay with the means of transport until 9292 customer service has decided on the relevant course of action. Any additional rental costs incurred will be refunded to the customer after verification by 9292, if the customer is not in arrears. For example, a customer is in arrears if the means of transport does not allow a termination of the rental period because the means of transport is outside the working area or has not been checked out via the app.
- In the event of an accident rendering the means of transport inoperable, the rental period will ultimately end when the means of transport is handed over to the breakdown company.
Article 11: Distance purchase/contract
- When entering into the Agreement, the customer gives the express consent as defined in Art. 6:230p Sub D that compliance has begun. When entering into the Rental Agreement, the customer acknowledges that the Rental Agreement after the termination of the Rental Agreement as defined in Art. 11 has been fully complied with by 9292. The Customer hereby makes the express declaration as defined in Art. 6:230p Sub D that they waive the right of termination after the Agreement has been executed.
