Terms & Conditions
Updated: August 1, 2022
Your access and use of the Services constitutes your agreement to be bound by this Agreement. If you do not agree to the Terms, you may not access or use the Services. The Terms, together with any Supplemental Terms (as defined below), expressly supersede prior agreements or arrangements with you and supersede content or information you read or have access to at other places, such as our website, emails, or applications. AutoServed may immediately terminate this Agreement or any Services concerning you, or generally, cease offering or deny access to the Services or any portion thereof, at any time for any reason or no reason.
Supplemental terms or policies applicable to any particular Service (“Supplemental Terms”) will be disclosed to you. Supplemental Terms may include terms and conditions of any particular event, activity, program, or promotion. Supplemental Terms are in addition to and shall be deemed a part of this Agreement. Supplemental Terms shall prevail over these Terms in the event of a conflict concerning the applicable Service(s).
AutoServed may amend the Terms from time to time. Amendments will be effective upon AutoServed's posting of such updated Terms or such amended Supplemental Terms. Your continued access or use of the Services after such posting constitutes your consent to be bound by the Terms, as amended.
By accessing and using the Services, you represent and warrant that: (i) you are at least 18 years old and are a legal adult in the jurisdiction in which you reside; and (ii) you have the right, authority, and capacity to enter into this Agreement and to abide by the Terms, and that you will so abide. If you enter into this Agreement on behalf of a company or other organization, you represent and warrant that you have authority to act on behalf of that entity and to bind that entity to this Agreement. The Services are not available to anyone under 18 years of age, or to any individual whose account has been terminated. Your account may not be used for Services to be performed for another person.
The Services constitute a technology platform including websites and mobile applications (the “AutoServed Platform”) that enables users to access a network of independent third-party vehicle service providers (repair shops, mechanics, technicians, towing service providers, or other independent contractors) (“Workshops”), and/or to arrange for vehicle inspection, diagnosis, maintenance, repair, towing or related services (“Vehicle Services”). WE DO NOT PROVIDE VEHICLE SERVICES, AND WE ARE NOT THE EMPLOYER OF ANY THIRD-PARTY PROVIDER. You acknowledge that we do not supervise, direct, or control a Workshop’s work or Services performed in any manner. A Workshop provides services to you as an independent contractor and is not an employee, joint venture, partner, agent, or franchisee of AutoServed for any purpose whatsoever.
License. Subject to your compliance with these Terms, we grant you a limited, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, revocable, non-transferable license to access and use the Services subject to the Terms of this Agreement. Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved by us.
Restrictions. You may not: (i) remove any copyright, trademark, or other proprietary notices from any portion of the Services; (ii) reproduce, modify, prepare derivative works based upon, distribute, license, lease, sell, resell, transfer, publicly display, publicly perform, transmit, stream, broadcast or otherwise exploit the Services except as expressly permitted by us; (iii) decompile, reverse engineer or disassemble the Services except as may be permitted by applicable law; (iv) link to, mirror or frame any portion of the Services; (v) cause or launch any programs or scripts for scraping, indexing, surveying, or otherwise data mining any portion of the Services or unduly burdening or hindering the operation and/or functionality of any aspect of the Services; or (vi) attempt to gain unauthorized access to or impair any aspect of the Services or its related systems or networks.
Ownership. The Services and all rights therein are and shall remain our property. Neither these Terms nor your use of the Services convey or grant to you any rights in or related to the Services, except for the limited license granted above, or to use or reference in any manner our company names, logos, product, and service names, trademarks or services marks. All content appearing on the AutoServed Platform is our property or the property of our partners and is protected by international copyright laws. Certain names, graphics, and logos are trademarks, service marks, or trade dress (together, “Marks”) of AutoServed. Our Marks may not be used for any purpose except under our Trademark Usage Policy. All other Marks are the property of their respective owners and may not be used without their prior written consent.
Your Use of the Services
User Accounts. To use most aspects of the Services, you must register for and maintain a user account ("Account"). Account registration requires you to submit certain personal information, such as your name, email address, address, vehicle information, and/or mobile phone number, and/or at least one valid payment method (e.g., a credit card). You agree to maintain accurate, complete, and up-to-date information in your Account. Your vehicle information may include the license plate number, VIN (Vehicle Identification Number), make, model, year, engine size, trim, etc. Your failure to maintain accurate, complete, and up-to-date Account information may result in your inability to access and use the Services or AutoServed's termination of this Agreement. You are responsible for all activity that occurs under your Account, and you agree to always maintain the security and secrecy of your Account username and password. We are not liable for any loss that you may suffer through the use of your password by others. You must notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your Account or any other breach of security known to you concerning AutoServed.
Scheduling a Job. To request an appointment for Vehicle Services (a “Job” and a “Job Request”), you may be asked to specify the type of service that you think is required, the location where you would like the Job to be performed, and the date and time that you would like the Job to take place. You agree that it is your responsibility to provide a suitable location for the Job and to ensure that the Workshop has proper access and permission and is legally authorized to complete the Job at the location.
Once you submit a Job Request, we may provide you with a price and/or a list of possible Workshops along with their experience information and “rating” based on previous customer reviews (if applicable). We reserve the right to modify, add, or delete items and/or prices at any time before billing you. If you have agreed with the Workshop to modify, add, or delete items in the Job Request, or to reschedule a Job, you must notify us. When you reschedule a Job, you agree to do so through the AutoServed Platform.
You agree to treat Workshops courteously and lawfully, to provide a safe and appropriate working environment that complies with all applicable laws and regulations, and to provide reasonable cooperation to enable Workshops to complete the Job. We do not control the availability of the independent Workshops on the AutoServed Platform. You acknowledge that your selected Workshop may be unavailable from time to time, e.g. due to illness, or vacation.
Plastic, composite, and rubber engine and cooling system components are often affected by age and temperature fluctuations and become fragile over time. Because of this, such parts can break or even disintegrate during procedures that involve their disassembly or handling. You understand that Workshop will not be held liable for these types of component failures and that in the event of such, Workshop will provide you with a revised estimate to include the replacement of the failed component.
If you would like to receive the replaced vehicle parts upon completion of the Job, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and, if applicable, you will be charged the core price for the replacement part and you will be responsible for proper disposal of such parts by all applicable laws, regulations, and rules. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any defective parts removed from your car in connection with the servicing of a claim under our Limited Warranty must be returned to us.
Communications. You expressly consent and agree to receive communications from us, including via e-mail, text message, calls, and push notifications, to the cellular telephone number you provided to us. You understand that you may receive communications generated by automatic telephone dialing systems and/or which will deliver prerecorded messages sent by or on behalf of AutoServed or its affiliated companies, or Workshops, including operational communications concerning your Account, use of the AutoServed Platform, or Services, updates concerning new and existing features on the AutoServed Platform, communications concerning promotions, and news concerning us and our Services. You may opt-out of receiving text (SMS) messages from us at any time by texting the word STOP from the mobile device receiving the messages. You acknowledge that opting out of receiving text messages may impact your use of the Services. You agree to our use of a service provider to mask your telephone number when you call or exchange text messages with a Workshop. During this process, we will receive and store data, including the date and time of the call or text message, the phone numbers, and the content of the text messages. You agree to our use and disclosure of this data for legitimate business purposes. We may send you a confirmation and other transactional emails regarding the Services. We may also send you emails or text messages about services that we think might interest you ("Promotional Emails"). You can unsubscribe from Promotional Emails at any time by clicking unsubscribe in our email communications or contacting us.
Promotional Codes or Credits. We may create promotional codes or credits that may be redeemed for Account credit, or other features or benefits related to the Services and/or a Workshop's services, subject to any additional terms associated with each promotion ("Promo Codes"). You agree that Promo Codes: (i) must be used by the intended audience and for the intended purpose and in a lawful manner; (ii) may not be duplicated, sold, or transferred in any manner, or made available to the general public (whether posted to a public form or otherwise), unless expressly permitted by us; (iii) may be disabled by us at any time for any reason without liability to AutoServed; (iv) may only be used under the specific terms that we established for such Promo Code; (v) are not valid for cash; and (vi) may expire before your use. AutoServed reserves the right to interpret how the Promo Codes will be used, or to withhold or deduct credits or other features or benefits obtained through the use of Promo Codes by you or any other user if we determine or believe that the use or redemption of the Promo Code was in error, fraudulent, illegal, or in violation of the applicable Promo Code terms or these Terms.
User Content. We may permit you from time to time to submit, upload, publish, or otherwise make available textual, audio, and/or visual content and information, including commentary and feedback related to the Services, initiation of support requests, and submission of entries for competitions and promotions ("User Content"). Any User Content provided by you remains your property. However, by providing User Content to us, you grant us a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, transferable, unrestricted, non-exclusive, absolute, royalty-free license, with the right to sublicense, use, copy, modify, transmit, reproduce, exhibit, disclose, display, transform, create derivative works of, distribute, publicly display, publicly perform, and otherwise exploit in any manner such User Content in all formats and distribution channels now known or hereafter devised, without further notice to or consent from you, and without the requirement of payment to you or any other person or entity. Further, we shall be free to use any ideas, concepts, know-how, or techniques contained in such User Content for any purpose whatsoever, including developing, manufacturing and marketing products and/or services incorporating any User Content. You represent and warrant that: (i) you either are the sole and exclusive owner of all User Content or you have all rights, licenses, consents, and releases necessary to grant us the license to the User Content as set forth above; and (ii) neither the User Content nor your submission, uploading, publishing or otherwise making available of such User Content nor our use of the User Content as permitted herein will infringe, misappropriate or violate a third party's intellectual property or proprietary rights, or rights of publicity or privacy, or result in the violation of any applicable law or regulation. You agree to not provide User Content that is defamatory, libelous, hateful, violent, obscene, pornographic, unlawful, or otherwise offensive, as determined by us in our sole discretion, whether or not such material may be protected by law. We may, but shall not be obligated to, review, monitor, or remove User Content, at our sole discretion and at any time and for any reason or no reason, without notice to you.
Network Access and Devices. You are responsible for obtaining the compatible hardware or devices and data network access necessary to use the Services. The Services may be subject to malfunctions and delays inherent in the use of the Internet and electronic communications and we shall not be held liable for any such malfunction or delay.
You understand that use of the Services may result in charges to you for the Vehicle Services you receive from a Workshop (“Charges”). Charges may include any applicable taxes. At the time you schedule a Job, we will record your preferred payment method information and validate your payment information. You authorize the payment of Charge(s) according to your preferred payment method information, or, if applicable, the payment of a cancellation fee if you cancel the Job and the payment of a rescheduling fee if you reschedule the Job. You agree not to make any alternative payment arrangement with the Workshop who performs the Job. While we will use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of all credit cards and all other personal information, we expressly disclaim any liability for any damage that may result should any information be released to any third parties, and you agree to hold us harmless for any damages that may result therefrom.
After you have received Vehicle Services obtained through your use of the Service, we will facilitate your payment of the applicable Charges on behalf of the Workshop, as such Workshop's limited payment collection agent. Payment of the Charges in such manner shall be considered the same as payment made directly by you to the Workshop. Charges paid by you are final and non-refundable unless otherwise determined by us. All Charges are due immediately. If your primary payment method is determined to be expired, invalid, or otherwise not able to be charged, you agree that we may, as the Workshop's limited payment collection agent, use a secondary payment method in your Account, if available.
We reserve the right to establish, remove and/or revise Charges for any or all Vehicle Services at any time in our sole discretion. If a Workshop changes the Vehicle Services needed or adds additional Vehicle Services, you authorize the payment of updated or modified Charges. If the Workshop determines that your car requires services other than the Vehicle Services you specified in your original Job Request or that the Workshop is not able to perform such work, you may be charged a separate diagnosis fee.
Termination by AutoServed. We may terminate this Agreement or terminate or suspend your Account immediately at any time for any reason or for no reason upon notice to you. If we terminate or suspend your Account, you are prohibited from registering and creating a new account under your name, a fake or borrowed name, or the name of any third party, even if you may be acting on behalf of the third party. In addition to terminating or suspending your Account, we reserve the right to pursue any available legal action. When terminating your Account, we may delete the Account and any information in it. You have no ownership rights to your Account.
Termination by You. You may terminate this Agreement by completely and permanently ceasing to use the Services (provided that there are no outstanding Services ordered under your Account). If you attempt to terminate this Agreement while there are still outstanding Services ordered under your Account, this Agreement shall not terminate until such Services have been performed or otherwise canceled as permitted by this Agreement.
Rescheduling of Jobs by You. You may reschedule a scheduled Job at any time, subject to the following. If you cancel more than 48 hours before a scheduled Service appointment or Job, there is no rescheduling fee. If you cancel within 48 hours of the scheduled start time for the Job or scheduled Service, you will be charged a Php. 200 rescheduling fee. We reserve the right to establish, remove and/or revise our reschedule policy or reschedule fee at any time at our discretion.
Cancellation of Jobs by You. You may cancel a scheduled Job at any time, subject to the following. If you cancel more than 48 hours before a scheduled Service appointment or Job, there is no cancellation fee. If you cancel within 48 hours of the scheduled start time for the Job or scheduled Service, you will be charged for a Php. 200 cancellation fees. We reserve the right to establish, remove and/or revise our cancellation policy or cancellation fees at any time at our discretion.
Cancellation of Jobs by Workshops. When a Workshop cancels a scheduled Job, we generally notify you and make your Service request available for another Workshop. However, we cannot guarantee that a canceled Job will be selected by another Workshop and rescheduled or that the Job Request will be completed. Workshops reserve the right to refuse a Job Request. You hereby agree to hold us harmless from any liability that may result from the cancellation of a Job or refusal of a Workshop to complete a Job.
There may be instances where, after a Workshop has arrived at your location, the Workshop finds that it is not able to complete the Job, for reasons including, without limitation, that the Workshop does not have access or permission to work on your vehicle at the location you provided, that the location is not fit for automotive services (e.g., hill or uneven surface), or that the information you provided concerning your vehicle is inaccurate or incomplete. In such instances, you may be charged a minimum fee or cancellation fee.
AutoServed Gift Cards may be used only for the purchase of eligible Vehicle Services through the AutoServed Platform. Except as required by law, Gift Cards cannot be transferred for value or redeemed for cash. Charges are deducted from the Gift Card balance. To redeem or view a Gift Card balance, please visit our user account page. We are not responsible if a Gift Card is lost, stolen, destroyed, or used without permission.
Inspection or Diagnosis Work
We do not provide inspections that are equivalent to MVIC inspections. Obtaining any inspection through the AutoServed Platform does not indicate that your vehicle would pass authorized inspections.
If you schedule a diagnosis Job with a Workshop, it will first seek to diagnose the problem. In performing a diagnosis, it may go through a step-by-step process to rule out or confirm part failures through visual inspection and/or appropriate tests. Although Workshops use their experience in performing diagnoses, we cannot guarantee that any particular diagnosis will identify all of the problems with your car (and/or solutions) during the first inspection. Sometimes, the only way to get to the root cause of a problem is to go through a process of elimination – that is, to replace a part suspected to be defective and then see whether the problem still exists.
After receiving a diagnosis, you may request subsequent repair work recommended based on the diagnosis. You agree that our Limited Warranty applies only to such repair work, not to the completeness of the diagnosis or to any problems that you may be experiencing with your car (other than a problem with the replaced part itself). For example, if your car has an oil leak, the leak may be coming from two or three different places in your engine. The Workshop may recommend replacing the part responsible for the most obvious source of the leak, and then recheck the car to see if other components are leaking too. You understand that, if there are other leaking components, replacing those other components would be separate work subject to an additional Charge.
Pre-purchase inspections are based on what is seen and heard through the eyes and ears of the Workshop. Weather and light conditions, as well as the cleanliness of the vehicle both inside and out, can reduce the accuracy of the inspection, making things such as prior repainting and body work difficult to detect. For the most accurate inspection report, the vehicle must be clean, dry, and well-lit at the time of inspection. Workshops do not clean or disassemble vehicles before or during pre-purchase inspections.
Workshops go to your location to inspect the car. They do not put the car on a lift but may use floor jacks to raise up parts of the car. Pre-purchase inspections are not diagnosis Jobs. Diagnostic equipment is not typically used in a pre-purchase inspection. Workshops may identify the VIN (vehicle identification number), but do not check the authenticity of the VIN, history, or title.
AutoServed’s services are similar to what you would see and hear if you were to inspect the car yourself and you had the same level of experience as the Workshop. Since many aspects of the inspection are subjective, the Workshop is providing you with his or her opinion. If you were to perform the inspection yourself, you might come to different conclusions.
Each inspection is limited to the items expressly stated in the inspection report. If you request an inspection of an item not included in the inspection report, the Workshop may make a reasonable effort to inspect that additional item; however, there is no guarantee that the additional item will be inspected. If reference to the additional item is not expressly included in the inspection report, you should assume that the item was not inspected.
Workshops may test drive vehicles, but a test drive is not a required aspect of a pre-purchase inspection report. Unless the inspection report specifically states that a test drive was conducted, no such test drive was conducted.
Pre-purchase inspection reports are not guaranteed or warranted, because changes in the vehicle can occur and/or manifest themselves between the time of inspection and the time of purchase and because during a pre-purchase inspection the Workshop cannot see inside an engine or transmission and does not take the whole car apart to check every component in the car. Thus, impending failures may not be evident at the time of inspection.
Neither we nor any Workshop advises on the value of any vehicle, whether or not to purchase a vehicle, or authenticates a vehicle’s origin. Regardless of any comments made by a Workshop, you purchase or decline to purchase a vehicle at your own risk. We do not determine if a vehicle is emission compliant or whether a vehicle will perform properly.
Vetting of Third-Party Providers
Workshops may be subject to an extensive vetting process before they can register for and during their use of the AutoServed Platform. Although we may perform background checks of Workshops, we cannot confirm that each Workshop is whom they claim to be, and therefore, we cannot and do not assume any responsibility for the accuracy or reliability of identity or background check information or any information provided through the AutoServed Platform. When interacting with Workshops, you should exercise caution and common sense to protect your safety and property, just as you would when interacting with other persons whom you don’t know. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONDUCT, WHETHER ONLINE OR OFFLINE, OF ANY USER OF THE AUTOSERVED PLATFORM AND YOU HEREBY RELEASE AUTOSERVED FROM ANY LIABILITY RELATED THERETO. WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY CLAIM, INJURY, OR DAMAGE ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE AUTOSERVED PLATFORM.
The terms and conditions of our Limited Warranty are incorporated into this Agreement by reference. We may amend the Limited Warranty from time to time by posting changes, your continued access or use of the Services after posting constitutes your consent to be bound by the terms of the Limited Warranty as amended.

AUTOSERVED DOES NOT GUARANTEE THE QUALITY, SUITABILITY, SAFETY, OR ABILITY OF THIRD-PARTY PROVIDERS. YOU AGREE THAT THE ENTIRE RISK ARISING OUT OF YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES, AND ANY SERVICE OR GOOD REQUESTED IN CONNECTION THEREWITH, REMAINS SOLELY WITH YOU, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW.
Limitations of Liability
YOU AGREE NOT TO HOLD AUTOSERVED (OR, ITS STOCKHOLDERS, AFFILIATES, LICENSORS, PARTNERS, MEMBERS, DIRECTORS, MANAGERS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, SUCCESSORS, ASSIGNS, AND CONTENT PROVIDERS (COLLECTIVELY, "MEMBERS")) LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES, EXPENSES, LOSSES, SUITS, CLAIMS, AND/OR CONTROVERSIES THAT HAVE ARISEN OR MAY ARISE, WHETHER KNOWN OR UNKNOWN, RELATING TO YOUR USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE AUTOSERVED PLATFORM OR ANY SERVICES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ANY LIABILITIES ARISING IN CONNECTION WITH THE CONDUCT, ACT, DELAY OF PERFORMANCE OR OMISSION OF ANY USER OR THIRD-PARTY PROVIDER (OR ANY TRANSACTION OR RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN YOU AND ANY THIRD PARTY PROVIDER), ANY DISPUTE WITH ANY USER OR THIRD-PARTY PROVIDER, ANY INSTRUCTION, ADVICE, ACT, OR SERVICE PROVIDED BY AUTOSERVED OR MEMBERS, AND ANY DESTRUCTION OF YOUR INFORMATION.

AUTOSERVED AND MEMBERS DO NOT ACCEPT ANY LIABILITY CONCERNING THE QUALITY OR FITNESS OF ANY WORK PERFORMED IN CONNECTION WITH THE AUTOSERVED PLATFORM.
THE AUTOSERVED PLATFORM IS ONLY A VENUE FOR CONNECTING USERS. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ASSESSING THE SUITABILITY, LEGALITY, OR ABILITY OF ANY THIRD-PARTY PROVIDER AND YOU EXPRESSLY WAIVE AND RELEASE AUTOSERVED FROM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY, CLAIMS, OR DAMAGES (ACTUAL, DIRECT, OR CONSEQUENTIAL) OF EVERY KIND AND NATURE, KNOWN AND UNKNOWN, SUSPECTED AND UNSUSPECTED, DISCLOSED AND UNDISCLOSED, ARISING FROM OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO ANY THIRD-PARTY PROVIDER. WE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY LIABILITY THAT MAY ARISE BETWEEN YOU AND ANY THIRD-PARTY PROVIDER. THE QUALITY OF THE SERVICES SCHEDULED OR REQUESTED THROUGH THE USE OF THE AUTOSERVED PLATFORM IS ENTIRELY THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE THIRD-PARTY PROVIDER WHO ULTIMATELY PROVIDES SUCH SERVICES TO YOU. YOU UNDERSTAND, THEREFORE, THAT BY USING THE AUTOSERVED PLATFORM, YOU MAY BE EXPOSED TO SERVICES THAT ARE POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS, OFFENSIVE, HARMFUL, UNSAFE, OR OTHERWISE OBJECTIONABLE, AND THAT YOU USE THE AUTOSERVED PLATFORM, AND THIRD-PARTY PROVIDER, AT YOUR OWN RISK. NOTHING IN THIS AGREEMENT OR THE AUTOSERVED PLATFORM CONSTITUTES, OR IS MEANT TO CONSTITUTE, ADVICE OF ANY KIND. IF YOU REQUIRE ADVICE ABOUT ANY LEGAL, FINANCIAL OR MEDICAL MATTER YOU SHOULD CONSULT AN APPROPRIATE PROFESSIONAL.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THIRD-PARTY PROVIDERS MAY NOT BE PROFESSIONALLY LICENSED OR PERMITTED. YOU AGREE THAT WE HAVE NO RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY TO YOU RELATING TO VEHICLE SERVICES PROVIDED TO YOU BY THIRD-PARTY PROVIDERS OTHER THAN AS EXPRESSLY OUTLINED IN THESE TERMS.
SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF CERTAIN TYPES OF DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IF, NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING EXCLUSIONS, IT IS DETERMINED THAT AUTOSERVED OR MEMBERS ARE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES, IN NO EVENT WILL THE AGGREGATE AND TOTAL LIABILITY, WHETHER ARISING IN CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR CAUSE OF ACTION, EXCEED THE AMOUNT INVOICED FOR THE ASSOCIATED JOB.
BY USING THE AUTOSERVED PLATFORM, YOU AGREE THAT THE EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY SET OUT IN THIS AGREEMENT ARE REASONABLE. IF YOU DO NOT BELIEVE THEY ARE REASONABLE, YOU MUST NOT USE THE AUTOSERVED PLATFORM.
Indemnification. You hereby agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless AutoServed and Members from and against any and all claims, losses, expenses, liabilities, damages, or demands (including attorneys' fees and costs incurred), in connection with or resulting from, directly or indirectly: (i) your use or misuse of or inability to use the AutoServed Platform, and/or the Services, (ii) your violation of this Agreement, (iii) your violation of any applicable law or regulation; (iv) your violation of the rights of another (including Workshops), and (v) your information and content that you submit or transmit through the AutoServed Platform. AutoServed reserves the right, at its own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to your indemnification. You will not, in any event, settle any such claim or matter without the prior written consent of AutoServed.
Arbitration. Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of the AutoServed Platform, or any Vehicle Services will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to AutoServed’s email email@example.com.
General. You may not assign these Terms without AutoServed's prior written approval. AutoServed may assign these Terms without your consent to (i) a subsidiary or affiliate; (ii) an acquirer of AutoServed's equity, business, or assets; or (iii) a successor by merger. Any purported assignment in violation of this section shall be void. No joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you, AutoServed, or any Workshop as a result of this Agreement or use of the Services. If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be struck and the remaining provisions shall be enforced to the fullest extent under law. AutoServed's failure to enforce any right or provision in these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by AutoServed in writing.
Complaints of Copyright Infringement. We respect the intellectual property of others. We will respond to properly submitted notices of alleged copyright infringement that comply with applicable law. If a person or entity has a good faith belief that any materials provided through the AutoServed Platform or in connection with the Services infringe upon that person's or entity's copyright or other intellectual property right (such person or entity, a "Complainant") and sends to us a properly submitted copyright notice as indicated below, we will investigate, and if we determine, in our discretion, that the material is infringing, we will remove the content. All notices claiming an infringement of copyright rights must contain the following: (i) identification of the intellectual property right that is allegedly infringed (all relevant registration numbers, or a statement concerning the Complainant's ownership of the work, should be included); (ii) a statement specifically identifying the location of the infringing material, with enough detail that we may find it (please note it is not sufficient to merely provide a top level URL); (iii) the complete name, address, telephone number and e-mail address of Complainant; (iv) a statement that Complainant has a good faith belief that the use of the allegedly infringing material is not authorized by the owner of the rights, or its agents, or by law; (v) a statement that the information contained in the notification is accurate, and under the penalty of perjury, Complainant is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright or other property rights that are allegedly infringed; and (vi) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the intellectual property rights that are allegedly being infringed. AutoServed's contact information for notice of alleged copyright infringement is via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
