Updated August 9th, 2023

This agreement contains a binding arbitration provision and class action waiver. It affects your legal rights as detailed in the arbitration and class action waiver section below. Please read carefully. 

Please note that your use of and access to the services (defined below), including any access to AirGarage locations (defined below) are subject to the following terms. If you do not agree to all of the following terms, you may not use or access the services in any manner. 

1. Agreement to Terms

These Terms of Service (the "Terms") are a binding legal agreement between you and AirGarage, Inc. ("AirGarage", "we", "us" or "our"). The terms "user," "you" and "your" refer to the individual or entity that uses the websites, applications, and other online products and services provided by us and online and offline services related thereto, including physical locations where our technology is used, and including any services, transactions, or engagement you might have with us (collectively, the "Services"). By using our Services, whether as a digital user accessing the online aspects of the Services (either directly or through a third-party platform) or as a visitor to one of our or our customers' or business partners' physical locations (an "AirGarage Location"), you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you don't agree to be bound by these Terms, do not use or access the Services, including any AirGarage Location or Product. If you use the Services on behalf of an entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that entity, your acceptance of the Terms will be deemed an acceptance by that entity, and "you" and "your" herein shall refer to that entity, its directors, officers, employees, and agents.

2. Changes to these Terms or the Services

Except for Section 16, providing for binding arbitration and waiver of class action rights, AirGarage reserves the right, at its reasonable and sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms at any time. You are responsible for reviewing and becoming familiar with any such modifications. Changes will be effective immediately unless otherwise provided. If we determine a revision to the Terms, in our sole discretion, is material, we will notify you as required by law. Use of the Services by you after any modification to the Terms constitutes your acceptance of the Terms as modified. If you do not accept the changes, you must discontinue using the Services.

AirGarage reserves the right at any time to modify, suspend, discontinue, or terminate, temporarily or permanently, the Services or any part thereof, with or without notice. Except for payments or refunds expressly available to you under these Terms (or as required by law), you agree that AirGarage shall not be liable to you for any modification, suspension, or discontinuance of the Services.

3. Who May Use the Services?

Specific features or aspects of the Services may have a different age limit. By using the Services, you represent and warrant that you (or your parent or legal guardian, as required by applicable law if you are unable to form a binding contract) have reviewed and agreed to these Terms. Parents and guardians are responsible for the acts of their children when using our Services.

B. Registration and Your Information

In order to use the Services, you must create an “Account”. When creating an Account you may be required to submit certain personal information, including without limitation, your name, email address, mobile phone number, vehicle information, and/or valid Payment Information (as defined below). You agree to provide accurate, current, and complete information that does not infringe on the rights of any third party, and to update all information you provide to keep it accurate, current, and complete. You are solely responsible for safeguarding your Account information and for all activity that occurs on your Account, and you will notify AirGarage immediately of any unauthorized use of your Account. We are not liable for any losses by any party caused by an unauthorized use of your Account. You agree to comply with all billing procedures, including, as applicable, providing and maintaining accurate and lawful Payment Information for your Account.

By sending us any Feedback, you further (i) agree that we are under no obligation of confidentiality, express or implied, with respect to the Feedback, (ii) acknowledge that we may have something similar to the Feedback already under consideration or in development, (iii) grant us an irrevocable, non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, worldwide license to use, modify, prepare derivative works, publish, distribute, and sublicense the Feedback, and (iv) irrevocably waive, and cause to be waived, against AirGarage and its users any claims and assertions of any moral rights contained in such Feedback. This Feedback section shall survive any termination of your Account, these Terms, or your participation in the Services.

5. Parking Payments and Monthly Permits

AirGarage requires payment for use of the Services (or certain portions thereof). By using our Services, you agree to the pricing, payment, and billing policies posted or otherwise communicated to you. AirGarage offers multiple options to use the Services including options for Hourly or Daily Basis (a “Parking Payment”) or purchasing a Monthly Permit with a recurring monthly payment ("Monthly Permit") for such use. Special pricing and/or eligibility terms may apply to certain offers and Monthly Permits.

A. General

Whether you make a Parking Payment or purchase a Monthly Permit (each, a "Transaction"), you expressly authorize us (or our third-party payment processor) to charge you for such Transaction and future Transactions via the payment features of the Services. We may ask you to supply additional information relevant to your Transaction, including your credit card number(s), the expiration date of your credit card(s) and your email and postal addresses for billing and notification (such information, "Payment Information"). We (or our third-party payment processor) may authorize charges using your Payment Information in anticipation of Monthly Permit or other Service-related payments in advance. In some instances, your available balance or credit limit may be reduced to reflect the authorization. You represent and warrant that you have the legal right to use all payment method(s) represented by any such Payment Information. When you initiate a Transaction, you authorize us to provide your Payment Information to third parties so we can complete your Transaction and to charge your payment method for the type of Transaction you have selected (plus any applicable taxes and other charges). You may need to provide additional information to verify your identity before completing your Transaction (such information is included within the definition of Payment Information). All payments for Transactions are non-refundable and non-transferable except as expressly provided in these Terms. All fees and applicable taxes, if any, are payable in United States dollars. For certain Payment Information, the issuer of the payment method may charge you certain additional fees (e.g., foreign transaction fees or processing fees). You will be solely responsible for such fees. You remain responsible for any amounts we are unable to collect for your use of the Services.

B. Service Fee

Each Transaction is subject to a fee (each a "Service Fee"). Service Fees are charged in connection with each Transaction and are calculated based on a formula specific to the Services. The application of a Service Fee and the rate is set by AirGarage in its sole discretion.

C. Monthly Permits and Renewal

For certain features of the Services you'll need a Monthly Permit. If you purchase a Monthly Permit, you will be charged the Monthly Permit fee for the applicable period, plus any applicable taxes, and other charges, at the beginning of your Monthly Permit and automatically at the beginning of each subsequent Monthly Permit period commencing thereafter. BY PURCHASING A MONTHLY PERMIT, YOU AUTHORIZE AIRGARAGE TO AUTOMATICALLY INITIATE RECURRING NON-REFUNDABLE PAYMENTS AS SET FORTH BELOW. Your Monthly Permit will automatically continue at the selected interval, and we (or our third-party payment processor) will automatically charge at the beginning of each new Monthly Permit period commencing after the initial period for your Monthly Permit, using the Payment Information you have provided, unless prior to the end of the current period: (a) you terminate your Account; (b) you cancel your Monthly Permit; (c) we decline to renew your Monthly Permit; or (d) these Terms are otherwise properly terminated as expressly permitted herein. We may receive updated credit card information (new credit card number or updated expiration date) from your credit card issuer. We may use these new details in order to help prevent any interruption to the Services. If you would like to use a different payment method or if there is a change in payment method, please log in to your Account to update your billing information. Monthly Permits may include additional terms and conditions as may be described at the time of purchase or in other communications we send to you. The Monthly Permit Fee is non-refundable except as expressly set forth in these Terms or in accordance with applicable law. If any Monthly Permit Fee is not paid in a timely manner, or your transaction cannot be processed, we reserve the right to suspend, disable, cancel or terminate your access to the Services or cancel your Monthly Permit. You will be responsible for paying all past due amounts.

D. Termination of your Monthly Permit

We may terminate your Monthly Permit at our sole discretion and without any notice. If we cancel your Monthly Permit, we may give you a prorated refund based on the amount of time remaining that you cannot use, provided, however, that we will not be obligated to grant you a refund if we terminate your Account or your Monthly Permit because we determine, in our sole discretion, that your actions or your use of the Services violates these Terms or any applicable law or has harmed another user.

E. Changes to the Monthly Permit

We may change the Monthly Permit terms or Monthly Permit Fees at any time on a going forward basis in our discretion. If the pricing for your Monthly Permit increases, we will notify you, and provide you an opportunity to change your Monthly Permit before applying those changes to your Account or charging you in connection with an automatic renewal. We may choose in our sole discretion to add, modify, or remove benefits and features from a Monthly Permit. Your continued use of the Services after the changes become effective will constitute your acceptance of the changes. If you do not wish to continue with the new fees or features, you may cancel your Monthly Permit. If you accept the new Monthly Permit, its terms and conditions will apply for that renewal and all renewals going forward.

F. Autostart Payments and Courtesy Fees

AirGarage requires payment for use of the Services (or certain portions thereof). In some instances a user may access an AirGarage Location without an active Monthly Permit or Parking Payment. In order to prevent disruption to the Services or to prevent user from being in violation of the Services, AirGarage may automatically charge user with an active Account a Parking Payment for use of the Services (“Autostart Payment”). Autostart Payments may also include an additional fee (“Courtesy Fee”). 

6. Content

AirGarage does not claim any ownership rights in any User Content and nothing in these Terms will be deemed to restrict any rights that you may have to your User Content.

D. Removal of User Content

To the extent permitted by law and in consideration of being allowed to use the Services, you hereby waive any and all claims, disputes, actions, demands, damages, losses, costs and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees), and liabilities (collectively, "Claims") which you or your heirs and next of kin may now or hereafter have or claim against AirGarage and/or its affiliates and its and their respective officers, directors, shareholders, agents, partners and employees (collectively, "Releasees"), for any and all loss, theft or damage to property and for injuries, illness, disease, or death to your person occurring in, upon or about, or connected with or arising out of any use of or other activity at the Services or AirGarage Locations, including, without limitation, any activity relating to services and/or advice of any third-party operator, independent contractor, or employee, whether caused by active or passive negligence of Releasees or otherwise ("Release"). You hereby assume the risk of all mistakes of fact or law with regard to entering into this Release. You understand, acknowledge, and agree that if any fact now or at the time of the Claim believed to be true is found hereafter to be other than, or different from, that which is now believed, you expressly assume the risk of such difference in fact and agree that this Release shall and will remain effective notwithstanding any such difference in fact. You further represent and warrant that you understand that (a) you may have sustained damages, expenses and losses based upon, attributable to, arising out of, in connection with or in any way related to the subject matter of the Claims which are presently unknown or not suspected and that such damages, expenses and losses, if any, may give rise to additional damages, expenses and losses in the future which are not now or at the time of the Claim anticipated by you and (b) that this Release has been agreed upon despite this realization. Being fully advised regarding the foregoing, you voluntarily and with full knowledge of its significance, expressly waive and relinquishes any and all rights you may have under any state or federal statute, rule or common law principle, in law or equity, relating to limitations on releases, including, but not limited to, § 1542 of the California Civil Code (or any other similar law in any jurisdiction) which would limit the effect of the foregoing release to those Claims actually known or suspected to exist at the time of the effectiveness of the foregoing release. California Civil Code § 1542 provides:

A general release does not extend to claims that the creditor or releasing party does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release and that, if known by him or her, would have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor or released party.

It is your intention, for yourself and for your past, present and future spouses, heirs, next of kin, guardians, beneficiaries, legal representatives, executors, administrators, successors and assigns (as well as their respective spouses, heirs, next of kin, guardians, beneficiaries, legal representatives, executors, administrators, successors and assigns) that, notwithstanding the possibility that they or their counsel could discover or gain a more complete understanding of the facts, events or law which, if presently or at the time of the Claim known or fully understood, would have affected the foregoing release, this Release shall be deemed to have fully, finally and forever settled any and all Claims, without regard to the subsequent discovery or existence of different or additional facts, events or law and that this Release shall be effective as a full and final accord and satisfaction and mutual general release of and from all released matters.

You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Releases from and against any Claims out of or in any way connected with (a) your access to or use of the Services or AirGarage Locations; (b) your User Content; (c) your violation of these Terms; or (d) your negligent act or omission or willful misconduct occurring at or in connection with any Services or AirGarage Locations. AirGarage reserves the right, at its own expense, to assume exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you and, in such case, you agree to cooperate with AirGarage in the defense of such matter.

You understand and acknowledge that AirGarage is not obliged to carry insurance on you, and the existence of insurance shall not change, alter, or increase any liability of AirGarage or affect the terms of this release, waiver of liability and indemnification under this Section [13(b)].

14. Limitation of Liability




15. Governing Law and Forum Choice

For any dispute not subject to arbitration or under the jurisdiction of a small claims court, you and AirGarage agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of any venue in the state and federal courts located in San Francisco County, California. You further agree to accept service of process by mail, and hereby waive any and all jurisdictional and venue defenses otherwise available. The Terms and the relationship between you and AirGarage shall be governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to conflict of law provisions.

16. Arbitration and Class Action Waiver


If you have a dispute with AirGarage or if AirGarage has a dispute with you and such dispute cannot be resolved informally, such dispute will be resolved on an individual basis in accordance with the provisions set forth below:

A. Initial Dispute Resolution

The parties shall use their best efforts to engage in informal dispute resolution to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement and engage in good faith negotiations which shall be a condition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration. Failure to engage in this process could result in the award of fees against you in arbitration. To adequately engage in this initial dispute resolution process, each party must notify the other party, in writing, of the facts of the dispute and all damages claimed. Such a writing must be sent to (a) the user's email address on file with AirGarage, or (b) contact@airgarage.com, whichever is applicable ("Dispute Notification"). The party receiving the Dispute Notification has thirty (30) days from receipt of the Dispute Notification to respond. The other party then has 15 days to reply to the response.

B. Binding Arbitration

If the parties do not reach an agreed upon solution within a period of 45 days from the time informal dispute resolution begins under the Initial Dispute Resolution provision, then either party may initiate binding arbitration as the sole means to resolve claims, subject to the terms set forth below. This agreement to arbitrate is a contract governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. section 1, et seq., and evidences a transaction involving commerce. Except as explicitly set forth in this Section [16], the arbitrator, and not any federal, state, or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, or formation of these Terms, including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of these Terms are void or voidable, whether a claim is subject to arbitration, and any dispute regarding the payment arbitrator fees (including the timing of such payments and remedies for nonpayment). The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator shall also be empowered to consolidate claims raised between the same parties to a single arbitration proceeding. The parties agree that the arbitrator may allow the filing of dispositive motions if they are likely to efficiently resolve or narrow issues in dispute. 

The parties understand that, absent this mandatory provision, they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. They further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.

C. Location

If you are a resident of the United States, arbitration will take place at any reasonable location within the United States convenient for you. You and AirGarage agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of any federal or state court in San Francisco County, California in order to compel arbitration, to stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator.

D. Class Action Waiver

The parties further agree that any arbitration shall be conducted in their individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. YOU AND AIRGARAGE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Notwithstanding any other provision of these terms, disputes regarding the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of the Class Action Waiver may be resolved only by a court and not by an arbitrator. If there is a final judicial determination that applicable law precludes enforcement of this paragraph's limitations as to a particular remedy, then that remedy (and only that remedy) must be severed from the arbitration and may be sought in court. The parties agree, however, that any adjudication of remedies not subject to arbitration shall be stayed pending the outcome of any arbitrable claims and remedies.

E. Exception - Litigation of Intellectual Property and Small Claims Court Claims

Notwithstanding the parties' decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may bring an action in state or federal court to protect its intellectual property rights ("intellectual property rights" means patents, copyrights, moral rights, trademarks, and trade secrets, but not privacy or publicity rights). Either party may also elect to have disputes or claims resolved in a small claims court that are within the scope of that court's jurisdiction. Either party may also seek a declaratory judgment or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction regarding whether a party's claims are time-barred or may be brought in small claims court in your state and county of residence. Seeking such relief shall not waive a party's right to arbitration under this agreement.

If you continue to use the Services after the 30th day, you agree that any unfiled claims of which AirGarage does not have actual notice are subject to the revised clause
