You will report, as soon as practicable, but in no event more than twenty-four (24) hours after such change, any change in your satisfaction of the eligibility criteria and any information that you provided to us during the application process.

(a) accurately, truthfully and fully complete our application for membership through our App;
(b) deliver all information and documents that we may request in the application process or otherwise;
(c) meet the eligibility criteria set forth in this Agreement; and
(d) have your application to operate Vehicle(s) approved in writing by us.
Please note that acceptance of your application is subject to our approval, and your membership or participation in the Program may be denied or, even if it is accepted, it can thereafter be terminated based upon criteria established from time to time by us or our insurance providers. You acknowledge that the approval or denial of your application or the decision to terminate it based upon our or our insurers’ criteria will be at our sole discretion. In addition, even if we approve your application and have not terminated it, you may be restricted from driving certain Vehicles based upon your driving history and experience or the type of Vehicle class that you have selected.

In respect of the Porsche Passport Program only, you may invite one individual to be listed on your account as a Secondary Driver, and you may request that a Secondary Driver be de-listed from your account and invite a different person to apply to be listed as a Secondary Driver on your account at any time.

2.5. Driving Records and Licence Requirements. By applying to participate in the Program, you authorize us to obtain your driving records from the jurisdiction that issued your driver’s licence and in any other jurisdiction that we desire. If you do not have a driver’s licence from the jurisdiction in which you reside, then failure to get one when required by applicable law constitutes your breach of this Agreement. We may from time to time require you to demonstrate compliance with the driver licensing laws of your jurisdiction of residence and/or impose further policies regarding the obligation to be licensed in your jurisdiction of residence. We reserve the right to request additional information from you, such as your proof of address at any time. As a condition to us agreeing to allow you to drive the Vehicles, you must maintain a good driving record as determined by us in our sole discretion, and we may, from time to time, check your driving records. If you do not continue to meet all of our eligibility requirements, then we reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to suspend, limit or terminate your right to drive the Vehicles and participate in the Program. If your licence is suspended or revoked or becomes invalid, or if you have any further endorsements or accidents on your driving record, or if you are convicted of or receive a citation or summons for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, distracted driving, dangerous or reckless driving, or exceeding the relevant speed limit, then you agree to report such suspension, revocation, changes, conviction, citation or summons to us promptly, but in no event later than twelve (12) hours from such event. Please be advised that, among other things, such events, or the failure to notify us promptly of any such events, may lead to you not being covered by insurance when driving the Vehicles and will give us the right to immediately terminate this Agreement.

Notwithstanding any provision set forth in this Agreement to the contrary, and to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you agree that you are responsible and liable for any and all loss and damage that is caused by you or the Vehicles during a Program Period. Your liability shall include, without limitation, the full value of any loss or damages (including, without limitation, those resulting from bodily injury or death) caused to third parties or their property to the extent the insurance described in Schedule 1 or Schedule 2, as applicable, does not cover such loss or damages, regardless of the reason for such non-coverage, whether because of your breach of this Agreement, your obligation to pay a deductible, or otherwise.
In addition, you are responsible and liable for all loss of or damage to a Vehicle during a Program Period resulting from any cause, including, without limitation, accident, collision, rollover, theft, vandalism, road condition, weather, or acts of nature. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, your liability includes, without limitation, the following (to the extent the coverage described in Schedule 1 or Schedule 2, as applicable, does not cover the loss or damages, regardless of the reason for such non-coverage, whether because of your breach of this Agreement, your obligation to pay a deductible, or otherwise): (a) all physical or mechanical damage to the Vehicle measured as follows: (i) if we determine that the Vehicle is a total loss, the actual cash value of the Vehicle immediately prior to the event giving rise to such total loss; (ii) if we determine that the Vehicle is repairable: (A) the difference between the value of the Vehicle immediately before the damage and the value immediately after the damage; or (B) the reasonable estimated retail value or actual cost of repair plus Diminished Value; (b) any Loss of Use, which shall be measured by multiplying the prorated daily rate by the actual or estimated number of days from the date the Vehicle is damaged until it is replaced or repaired, which you agree represents a reasonable estimate of Loss of Use damages and not a penalty, and Loss of Use shall be payable regardless of fleet utilization; (c) a reasonable administrative fee; (d) any towing, storage, and impound charges and other reasonable incidental and consequential damages; and (e) all costs associated with our enforcement of this Agreement or collection of charges, including lawyer’s fees, collection fees, and costs whether or not litigation is commenced.
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you irrevocably and unconditionally agree that you shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless us and our affiliates and, where applicable, any third party suppliers or subcontractors, and our and their respective present and former directors, officers, shareholders, employees, contractors, suppliers, agents, successors and assigns (we and such other persons being hereinafter referred to as the “Porsche Indemnitees”), and each of them, from and against any and all claims, demands, actions, suits, proceedings, damages, losses, fines, penalties, costs, expenses (including, without limitation, any lawyer’s fees), obligations and other liabilities of any nature whatsoever, whether foreseen or unforeseen, which may be made or brought against any of the Porsche Indemnitees or of which any of the Porsche Indemnitees may suffer or incur arising out of or relating to (a) any personal injury or death or property damage suffered by any person or persons as a result of or in any way connected to the selection, possession, use, operation and return of the Vehicles, (b) any breach of this Agreement by you, (c) anything done or omitted to be done (or purported to be done or omitted to be done) by you or any Secondary Driver, in connection with the Vehicles or this Agreement, and (d) each rental transaction under a Rental Agreement. The foregoing indemnification rights and obligations shall survive any termination of this Agreement.
6. LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY AND DISCLAIMER
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL WE OR OUR THIRD PARTY SUPPLIERS OR SUBCONTRACTORS BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSSES INCURRED OR SUSTAINED BY, OR IMPOSED UPON, YOU ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO YOUR OR ANY CURRENT OR SECONDARY DRIVER’S CRIMINAL, WILLFUL, OR RECKLESS ACTION OR OMISSION IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT, THE OPERATION OF A VEHICLE, OR IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM.

9. SCHEDULES TO THIS AGREEMENT. The following Schedules are attached and incorporated as a part of this Agreement:
Schedule 1: Porsche Passport Program Terms and Conditions
Schedule 2: Porsche Drive Program Terms and Conditions.
10.1. Acknowledgement. By accepting this Agreement, you represent and warrant to us that you have received all explanations that you may have reasonably requested concerning the content of this Agreement, including all Schedules, and that you have carefully read this Agreement in its entirety and that you understand and agree to all of its provisions. You further represent and warrant that you and, as applicable, each Secondary Driver meet the eligibility requirements described in Section 2 (ELIGIBILITY) above, and that you will promptly inform us of any changes during the term of this Agreement.
10.2. Assignment. The rights granted to you or, as applicable, a Secondary Driver under this Agreement, are not assignable or transferable, in whole or in part. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer the whole or any part of this Agreement without our prior written consent shall be void and of no force and effect. We may, without your consent, transfer or assign this Agreement or any of our rights and obligations pursuant to this Agreement to one or more affiliates or third parties. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, we may subcontract performance of our obligations to third parties.
10.3. No Waiver; Remedies Cumulative. No delay or omission by us in our exercise of any right occurring upon any noncompliance or default by you or, as applicable, any current or previous Secondary Driver, with respect to any of the terms or conditions of this Agreement shall impair any such right or be construed to be a waiver thereof. Any waiver by us of any covenant, condition, or agreement to be performed by you or, as applicable, any current or previous Secondary Driver, shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any prior or subsequent breach of the same, or of any other covenant, condition, or agreement hereunder. Unless stated otherwise, all remedies provided for in this Agreement shall be cumulative and in addition to and not in lieu of any other remedies available to either party at law, in equity, or otherwise.
10.4. Severability. If any term, provision, covenant or condition of this Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable for any reason, the remainder of the provisions will continue in full force and effect as if this Agreement had been executed with the invalid portion eliminated. The parties hereto further agree to substitute for the invalid provision a valid provision that most closely approximates the intent and economic effect of the invalid provision.
10.5. Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed by, construed and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the Province of Ontario and the federal laws of Canada applicable therein, without reference to its conflicts of laws or choice of law rules. The parties hereto irrevocably and unconditionally attorn to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the Province of Ontario and all courts competent to hear appeals from them, provided, however, that the foregoing shall not in any way limit or restrict a party from taking any action or proceeding in any other jurisdiction in order to enforce any judgment rendered in the Province of Ontario.
ARBITRATION CLAUSE --- IMPORTANT --- PLEASE REVIEW --- AFFECTS YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS
10.6. Arbitration. If you and we have a disagreement related to the Program, we’ll try to resolve it by talking with each other. If we can’t resolve it that way, then you and we agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between us. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. It includes, but is not limited to: (i) claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory; (ii) claims that arose before this or any prior agreement (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising); (iii) claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class; and (iv) claims that may arise after the termination of this Agreement. References to “us” and “we” in this Section include any third party beneficiaries, and references to “you,” “we” and “us” in this Section include our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of the Program or the Services under this or prior agreements between you and us. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court. This arbitration agreement does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies, including, for example, the Federal Trade Commission. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND WE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. This Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. This arbitration provision will survive termination of this Agreement.
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written notice of dispute (“Notice”). The Notice should be addressed to: Porsche Smart Mobility, Inc. One Porsche Drive, Atlanta, GA 30354. The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought. If we and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received, you or we may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by us or you will not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or we are entitled.
Private arbitration will be conducted by a neutral arbitrator and administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules. Arbitration is not a court proceeding. The rules of arbitration differ from the rules of court. There is no judge and jury in an arbitration proceeding. Discovery and rights to appeal in arbitration are generally more limited than in a lawsuit, and other rights that you and we would have in court may not be available in arbitration. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to the scope and enforceability of the arbitration provision are for the court to decide. Unless we and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) of your billing address. The arbitrator will issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. If for some reason these arbitration requirements don’t apply, or a claim proceeds in small claims court, you and we each waive any trial by jury and a judge will decide any and all disputes.
The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. YOU AND WE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this paragraph of this arbitration provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision will be null and void.
10.7. Notices. Any notices or other communications required or permitted to be given to you shall be in writing and shall be sufficiently given if delivered by email or mailed to you at the email or postage address provided to us in your completed application or within your Program account, as updated by you from time to time and on file with us. Any notices or other communications required or permitted to be given to us shall be in writing and shall be sufficiently given if delivered via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to us at the following address:
Porsche Smart Mobility Canada, Ltd.
165 Yorkland Blvd, Unit 150
Any notice delivered via email shall be deemed to have been received on the first business day after which it was sent, unless the sending party is notified that the email address is invalid. Any notice sent by letter shall be deemed to have been received on the fourth business day after it was posted in the regular Canadian mail.
10.8. French Language. The parties acknowledge that they have requested that this document and all other documents relating to it, be drawn up in the English language. Les parties reconnaissent avoir exigé que le présent document et tous les autres documents qui s’y rapportent soient rédigés en anglais.
10.9. Binding Effect. This Agreement shall enure to the benefit of and be binding upon the parties hereto and their respective personal representatives, successors and permitted assigns.
