DAMAGES OR LOSSES RESULTING FROM SUCH PROBLEMS.
You understand that in consideration of the use of the Bykea Services, you will be charged and will be required to pay for the services you receive from a Third Party Service Provider (“Charges”). After you have received services obtained through your use of the Bykea Service, Bykea will facilitate your payment of the applicable Charges on behalf of the Third Party Provider. Payment of the Charges in such manner shall be considered the same as payment made directly by you to the Third Party Provider. Charges will be inclusive of applicable taxes prescribed under the law. Charges paid by you are final and non-refundable, unless otherwise determined by Bykea.
All Charges are due immediately and payment will be facilitated by Bykea using the preferred payment method designated in your Account, after which Bykea will send you a receipt by email. If your primary Account payment method is determined to be expired, invalid or otherwise not able to be charged, you agree that Bykea may, as the Third Party Provider’s limited payment collection agent, use a secondary payment method in your Account, if available.
As between you and Bykea, Bykea reserves the right to establish, remove and/or revise Charges for any or all services obtained through the use of the Bykea Services at any time in Bykea’s sole discretion. Further, you acknowledge and agree that Charges applicable in certain geographical areas may increase substantially during times of high demand. Bykea will use reasonable efforts to inform you of Charges that may apply, provided that you will be responsible for Charges incurred under your Account regardless of your awareness of such Charges or the amounts thereof. Bykea may from time to time provide certain users with promotional offers and discounts that may result in different amounts charged for the same or similar services obtained through the use of the Bykea Services, and you agree that such promotional offers and discounts, unless also made available to you, shall have no bearing on your use of the Bykea Services or the Charges applied to you. You may elect to cancel your request for services from a Third Party Service Provider at any time prior to such Third Party Service Provider’s arrival, in which case you may be charged a cancellation fee.
The payment structure provided herein is intended to fully compensate the Third Party Service Provider for the services provided. You understand and agree that, while you are free to provide additional payment as a tip/gratuity to any Third Party Service Provider who provides you with services obtained through the Bykea Service, you are under no obligation to do so. Tips/gratuities are voluntary. After you have received services obtained through the Bykea Service, you will have the opportunity to rate your experience and leave additional feedback about your Third Party Service Provider.

We are also not liable for any wrongdoings, including traffic violations, or any criminal actions conducted by the Service Providers during the performance of the Services. The Service Providers are only our working partners, not our employees, agents or representatives.
- You shall be responsible for the cost of repair for damage to, or necessary
cleaning of, Third Party Provider vehicles and property resulting from use of
the Services under your Account in excess of normal “wear and tear”
damages and necessary cleaning (the “Repair or Cleaning”). In the event
that a Third Party Provider reports the need for Repair or Cleaning, and such
Repair or Cleaning request is verified by Bykea in Bykea’s reasonable
discretion, Bykea reserves the right to facilitate payment for the reasonable
cost of such Repair or Cleaning on behalf of the Third Party Provider using
your payment method designated in your Account. Such amounts will be
transferred by Bykea to the applicable Third Party Provider and are non-
