Hello!

Sunryde LLC, a California limited liability company, agrees to allow the undersigned (the “Renter”) to operate and ride on certain electric bicycles and related equipment (such as helmets, locks, and warmer bags, collectively referred to herein as the “Bike(s)”) rented to the Renter upon the condition that the Renter agrees to all terms and conditions of this Rental Agreement (including the release of claims) and evidence that agreement with their signature below.

 

READ THE FOLLOWING SECTIONS FULLY AND CAREFULLY PRIOR TO SIGNING.

 

This is a legally valid and binding obligation to release Sunryde from all known and unknown obligations, AND TO INDEMNIFY SUNRYDE AGAINST CLAIMS BROUGHT AGAINST IT BASED UPON RENTER’S USE OF THE BIKES. This instrument affects important legal rights.

 

Terms of Bike Rental

  1. Rental Term and Termination. Subject to your compliance with the terms of this Agreement, your Rental (defined below) of the Bike(s) begins when you first take possession of a Bike from one of Sunryde’s designated pick-up or return areas. This Agreement is effective as of such time, and shall continue until you return all Bike(s) subject to the Rental to Sunryde at a designated return area, or immediately upon your breach of any term of this Agreement. Upon termination of your Rental, your right to use the Bike(s) shall cease immediately; Sunryde may disable all or part of the functionality of any Bike(s) in order to effectuate the foregoing. 

  2. Location Sharing. At all times during the Rental period, Renter consents to share location data from Rented Bike(s) and/or through location-sharing features of Sunryde’s or its affiliate’ smartphone app(s) enabled by the Renter. Renter may revoke this consent via a written request to Sunryde, and by swapping their Bike for one that is not location-enabled. Sunryde will not share any of Renter’s location data with any third party without their consent or without removing their identity. If during the Rental period, the location of a Bike subject to the Rental is unknown to the Renter or to Sunryde for a period of at least 72 hours, then, after written notification to you, Sunryde may deem the Bike stolen, alert the police accordingly, and charge you for its reasonable costs to re-locate and repaid, or, if impossible, replace the Bike. 

  3. Rental Fees; Late Payment. All fees associated with your Rental shall be paid by the Renter to Sunryde via its or its affiliates’ website(s), smartphone app(s), or through any other method agreed upon by Sunryde in writing. Such fees may include a one-time starter fee and/or non-refundable security deposit in any amount determined by Sunryde in its sole and reasonable discretion, and/or an ongoing monthly Rental fee, which shall be payable in advance of the beginning of any month in which you have Rented a Bike from Sunryde. Rental fees will be pro-rated for any Rental taking place in only part of a month. By signing this Agreement, you authorize Sunryde and/or its affiliates to debit your designated debit or credit card associated with your Rental. If any Rental fee is not paid when due, (for example, if there are insufficient funds available in the nominated account), you will incur an administrative fee of $2/day. The administrative fee applies for every missed payment where an attempt is made to process a payment and it is returned by the relevant financial institution. In addition, Sunryde may charge interest at the rate of the lesser of 6% per annum or the maximum amount allowable on all amounts outstanding until paid in full. To the extent permitted by law, Sunryde may also refer the matter to a debt collection agency for the collection of fees outstanding and repossession of the Bike(s), if applicable, in which case you will be liable to pay to Sunryde all fees and charges payable in respect of the debt collector’s fees, costs and reasonable attorney’s fees.

  4. Rent to Own. At the discretion of Sunryde and upon its written consent, you may convert your Rental into a Rent-To-Own agreement, wherein all Rental fees paid shall be credited toward the purchase price of the Bike(s) subject to the Rental (which price shall include monthly interest of 1.5% per month of a Rent-To-Own Rental). At the end of a Rent-To-Own period, and subject to your payment of all applicable Rental fees, ownership of the Bike(s) subject to your Rental shall transfer to you in full, and this Agreement shall terminate automatically. If you wish to take ownership of a Bike prior to the end of the Rent-to-Own Period, Sunryde may, in its sole discretion, agree to an early transfer subject to any further terms and/or Rental fees it may specify in writing. 

 

Assumption of Risk

Renter is aware of the inherent risks of injury, death, and property damage involved in using an electric bicycle, including without limitation risks due to collisions, loss of balance, or equipment failure.

Renter is voluntarily engaging in using a bicycle with knowledge of the risks of injury, death, property damage, and other risks, and assumes any and all known and unknown risks of injury, death, and property damage that may result from such activity.

The Renter understands and acknowledges that this release of liability applies to and includes all unknown or unsuspected consequences or results arising from the foregoing. The Renter has read the contents of California Civil Code §1542, which says "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 Renter, for themself and their Related Parties, expressly waives any and all rights and benefits under California Civil Code §1542.

 

Indemnification

The Renter agrees to indemnify, defend, protect, and hold harmless Sunryde and the Released Parties from and against any Claims brought by the Renter, the Related Parties, and/or any third parties arising out of or related to 1) this agreement; 2) the use, misuse, or abuse of the Bikes or any other equipment of the Company that is in the possession of the Renter; and/or 3) the Rental.
