2 DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES
2.1 The Service allows the User to search for private freight transportation service providers using the list of the partner organizations (hereinafter referred to as the “Carriers”) which have entered into respective agreements with the Company.
2.2 The User acknowledges and agrees that:
(A) The User’s ability to obtain transportation services through the use of the Service does not establish the Company as a provider of the transportation services or as a transportation carrier. When the User finds a Carrier and accepts its terms including the specific freight transfer (hereinafter referred to as the “Freight Transfer”) and the price payable for it (hereinafter referred to as the “Transfer Price”), he shall be deemed to have entered into a paid transportation contract with the Carrier (hereinafter referred to as the “Transportation Contract”) but not with the Company.
(B) Due to the nature of the Service in accordance with this Agreement, the liability of the Company is limited to an obligation to accurately transmit the information from the Carrier to the User as well as to transfer prepayment or full payment for a specific Transfer received from the User to the Carrier. The Company shall not be liable for the credibility of the information passed as well as for the due and in good faith performance of the Carrier’s obligations within any agreements between the Carrier and the User. The Company bears no responsibility for any losses including the loss of gains and physical losses and damages caused by the Service, or in any way determined by the use of the Service.
(C) The Service, the software used for the provision of the Service and other content of the Site through which the Service is available (including but not limited to the “Epic Transportation Engine”, GetTransport logo and other logos and registered trademarks) are protected by the Company’s or third parties’ intellectual property rights. The User is hereby granted a limited, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, revocable, non-transferable license to: (i) access and use the respective intellectual property solely in connection with his use of the Service; and (ii) access and use any content, information and related materials that may be made available through the Service, in each case solely for the User’s personal, non-commercial use. Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved by the Company.
(D) There may exist certain technical limitations and restrictions on the Services, which can lead to the inaccessibility of the Service or delays in the transmission of communication at a particular time due to some reasons beyond the Company’s control.
(E) The User enters into this Agreement at its sole risk and understanding that the Service and any information provided to the User are provided “as is” and “as available”.
(F) The relations between the User and the Company during the use of the Service fall exclusively within the Agreement contained herein. Nothing shall be presumed to indicate that the Company and the User have entered into or have agreed to enter into any other contract or have any rights and obligations before each other within any other agreement.
3 PAYMENT OF TRANSFER PRICE
3.1 After finding a Carrier and entering into the Transportation Contract with him through the Service as stipulated herein, the User shall make a full or partial payment of the Transfer Price via one of the payment options offered by the Company, to the Company’s account, which the Company shall further transmit to the Carrier subject to the terms and conditions of a separate agreement between the Company and the Carrier.
3.2 The User shall transfer to the Company 100 percent of the Transfer Price or 15 percent of the Transfer Price as an advance payment. The remaining part of the Transfer Price, if any, shall be paid by the User to the Carrier immediately after the finish of the Freight Transfer by any mean agreed upon with the Carrier (either by cash or by wire transfer using the Services).
3.3 The User agrees that the Company has the right to add to the Transfer Price any processing fees and charges of the payment systems, which are due under the relevant agreements between the Company and its banks and/or payment systems. The User also agrees that the Transfer Price with any charges may be debited from the User’s bank/card account in other currency than one previously selected, if the payment in a specific currency and/or the mandatory currency conversion are stipulated by the bank and/or payment system effecting the payment.
3.4 Unless this Agreement provides otherwise:
(A) all payments made by the User under this Agreement shall be made gross, free of right of counterclaim or set off and without deduction or withholding of any kind other than any deductions or withholding required by law; if a User makes a deduction or withholding required by law from any payment, the sum due shall be increased to the extent necessary to ensure that, after the making of any such deduction or withholding, the Company receives a sum equal to the sum it would have received had no deduction or withholding been made;
(B) all payments made by the Company (whether as a refund to the User or on another basis) shall be deemed to be inclusive of all taxes that may be payable by the User in connection with the payment, and the payment of such taxes are the User’s sole responsibility. Under no circumstances shall the Company have an obligation to deduct or withhold any tax when making any payment by the User
