2. Using the B-cabs app

B-cabs provides an information society service and does not provide transport services. Transport services are provided by drivers under a contract (with you) for the carriage of passengers. Drivers provide transport services on an independent basis (either in person or via a company) as economic and professional service providers.

Disputes arising from consumer rights, legal obligations or from law applicable to the provision of transport services will be resolved between the passengers and drivers. Data regarding the drivers and their transport service is available in the B-cabs app and receipts for journeys are sent to the email address listed in passenger’s profile.

Depending on the payment options supported for given location of the journey, you can choose whether to pay the driver for the transport service in cash or use B-cabs in-App Payment.

During the installation of B-cabs app, passenger’s mobile number is linked to the respective B-cabs user account and added to our database. If you are no longer using your mobile number, you must notify B-cabs so we can anonymize your account data. If you do not notify us about any change to your number, your mobile operator may issue the same mobile number to a new person who when using the B-cabs app then may have access to your data.

3. B-cabs in-App Payment

Depending on the payment options supported for the given location of the journey, you can pay for the transport services with a card or cash as and when available through B-cabs App. By providing B-cabs in-App Payment service, B-cabs acts as commercial agent for the providers of the transport services. Your obligation to the provider of the transport service will be fulfilled when the payment order is given to transfer funds to B-cabs bank account.

4. Ordering and cancelling transport services

If you order a transport service and the driver has agreed to undertake the work then the transport service is considered to be ordered.Once a driver confirms that he/she will complete your journey, you will enter into a separate agreement with the driver for the provision of the journey on such terms and conditions as you agree with the driver. B-cabs does not provide journeys and is not a party to your agreement with the relevant driver.

Cancelling the use of an ordered transport service is considered to be the situation where the driver has replied to your request and you subsequently reject, cancel or refuse the transport service. When a transport service request is cancelled after certain time period you are required to pay a cancellation fee.

If you cancel a transport service request on multiple successive instances within 24-hour we may temporarily block your account for warning. After multiple such warnings, we may suspend your account for longer period (e.g 6 months). After that period you could ask to reactivate your account and your application will be reviewed by B-cabs.

When driver notifies the passenger about the arrival of the vehicle to its destination and passenger or people for whom the transport was ordered do not arrive at the vehicle within certain time period as specified in the B-cabs app, the request will be deemed cancelled. Sometimes driver may decide to cancel your request, please note that B-cabs is not responsible for such situations.

Once the driver arrives and sends you a notification that he/she has arrived the B-cabs app may begin charging fare on a waiting time basis according to the rates specified in the B-cabs app.

If you have requested transport services using the B-cabs app and cause damage to the driver’s vehicle or its furnishing (among else, by blemishing or staining the vehicle or causing the vehicle to stink), the driver will have the right to require you to pay and require compensation for any damages exceeding the penalty.
