These Terms of Use are effective as and from September 12, 2019.

 

1.   Contractual Relationship

 

Thank you for visiting or using the web site(s), social media sites, mobile applications, platforms and/or services provided by Spaces Operations Corporation and its affiliated entities (referred to herein as “Spaces”; “we”, “us”, “our”).  These terms of use (“Terms of Use”) are intended to form a contractual relationship between you and us, and govern your access to and use of our web site located at www.spacesusa.com and any social media sites maintained by us from time to time (together with any subdomains and other related pages, our “Sites”), as well as your access to and use of our services provided via our Sites, or by means of our mobile or other applications that you may download to your computer, mobile phone, tablet or other electronic device (collectively, the “Spaces Services”).


In referring to “you”, or “your” in these Terms of Use, we are referring to you as the individual person accessing the Spaces Services, and also – as and when it may be applicable for the specific parties accessing the Spaces Services – to your company, and in some cases the end user customers of your company.  If you are accessing and/or using the Spaces Services on behalf of any entity or end user customers of an entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to accept these Terms of Use on such entity’s behalf and on behalf of such end user customers.

2.   Your use of the Spaces Services

 

What Spaces provides:

 

The primary nature of the Spaces Services is to provide parties with the ability to access parking related information and services, including without limitation, in order to identify operators of parking facilities, facility locations, assess availability and costs of parking spaces at such facilities, coordinate and manage access to any such parking spaces, as well as pre-book and process payments for such parking spaces.

 

What Spaces does not provide:

 

Spaces does not:

  • Operate a parking facility or otherwise accept custody or possession of any vehicles or other property;
  • Accept any responsibility whatsoever regarding the safety of persons or property in the locations selected by our customers.
  • Guarantee the availability of a specific parking spot in the location you selected; or
  • Assume any responsibility whatsoever for the consequences of not being able to park or delays associated with parking.
  • Endorse the use of mobile phones or other devices while driving.

 

While Spaces collaborates with the participating parking facilities that make parking available to you, Spaces does not provide a parking service.  Such parking facilities are owned and operated by independent third parties and are not affiliated with Spaces and are not authorized to act as our agent in any capacity.  Your entry into and use of such parking facilities will be primarily governed by the terms and conditions of entry and use that such facilities specify.  It is the parking facility and its owners and/or operators that are responsible for the terms and conditions of your entry and use of such facilities, including without limitation the safe keeping of your person and property while on the premises.  All of this is outside of the control of Spaces and Spaces is not involved in any such matters.

 

Your responsibility:

 

Despite the convenience of the Spaces Services, the decision to make use of any information made available via the Spaces Services remains your sole responsibility.  You alone assume any and all risk, liability and/or damage associated with your selection of parking facility, your decision to enter into and/or remain in any such facility and/or that may occur to you or your vehicle or other persons or property.  You agree that Spaces is not responsible for any liability, loss, damage, injury, harm or other consequence arising from the parking facilities you may enter or during your use of or presence in such facilities.

 

You are also responsible for correctly entering, as may be required, the relevant parking facility details, the parking space number, the license plate number of the vehicle you are parking and any other information required, and you acknowledge and confirm your understanding that the allocation of parking spaces within a lot is solely in the control of the third party operator of the parking facility (or uncontrolled if not attended).


Spaces is also not responsible for any fines, parking tickets, penalty notices and the enforcement of vehicle parking related offenses you may incur or receive.  You are solely responsible for resolving with the relevant facility operators and/or authorities any issues that you may have regarding the issuance of fines, parking tickets, penalty notices or your vehicle being impounded.

 

3.   Eligibility, Registration and Account
