These Terms become effective on any person accessing or using any of the Platforms or availing the Services offered by Pidge (“User”). For the purposes of these Terms, the term “you” refers to the User, or visitor of the Platforms.
Acceptance of the Terms
Before accessing any of the Platforms, we request you to learn more about us and the Services by visiting the FAQ section. These Terms constitute a legally binding and enforceable agreement between you and Pidge and your use of the Platforms signifies your irrevocable and unconditional acceptance of the Terms.
Registration and Account Information
In order to access the Platform, you need to register on the Platform and open an account by completing the registration process which will also include a verification process. Each registration is for a single individual user only.
By registering your phone number with us, you consent to be contacted by us via phone calls, SMS notifications or instant messages, in case of any subscription or service updates. Each communication we send to you will contain instructions permitting you to “opt-out” of receiving future communications. Further, if at any time you wish to stop receiving communications from us, please contact us at email@example.com. Pidge does not send any promotional messages to unregistered User on telephone numbers registered with the DND National registry.
You shall not disclose your password or account information to any person. You shall notify Pidge immediately of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security. Pidge will not be liable for any unauthorised use of your account and for any loss that you may incur as a result of such unauthorised use. However, you shall continue to be liable to indemnify Pidge for any losses incurred by it either directly or indirectly as a result of the unauthorised use of your account.
The Services constitute a technology platform/mobile based software application through which the User can avail pick-up and delivery service for goods that the User wishes to transport (“Goods”) from a pre-determined pick-up point (“Pick-up Point”) to a pre-determined drop-off point (“Drop Point”) to the person as identified by the User. The User may choose to be the person sending the Goods or could identify such other person who will be the sender of the Goods (“Sender”) or be the recipient of such Goods or could identify such other person who will be the recipient of the Goods (“Recipient”), as the case may be.
Pidge will assign a delivery person for providing these Services to you (“Rider”). The Rider will collect the Goods from the Sender at the Pick-up Point and deliver them to the Recipient at the Drop Point. In case either of the Pick-up Point or the Drop Point is beyond the radius of operation of Pidge, the User will be notified of Pidge’s inability to provide the Services prior to placing any request for delivery.
The Rider will, while collecting the Goods from the Sender at the Pick-up Point, hand over a tamper-proof bag to the Sender. The Sender shall, and the User shall cause the Sender to, pack and appropriately seal the Goods in the tamper-proof bag provided by the Rider. Pidge will not be responsible for the loss or damage of Goods which were damaged, broken, or not fit for transport before the Goods were handed over to the Rider. Pidge does not conduct any checks on the Goods, and it is the User’s responsibility to ensure that the Goods are packed properly before sealing the Goods in the tamper-proof bag.
Once the Goods are handed over by the Sender to the Rider in the sealed tamper-proof bag, the Rider will scan the bar code on the bag which will generate a one-time password (“OTP”) on the User’s and/or the Sender’s mobile number, which the User or the Sender will be required to share with the Rider. The Rider, upon reaching the location of the Recipient, will scan the bar code on the tamper-proof bag again, which will generate another OTP on the User’s and/or the Sender’s mobile number. Pidge will not deliver the Goods to the Recipient unless the OTP provided by the Recipient matches with the scanned package before the delivery is made to the Recipient.
We do not detain any delivery without any valid reason and ensure our best to deliver untampered bags within the promised timeframe, however we shall not be liable for a tampered bag or delayed delivery or non-delivery if a force majeure event occurs, or if the User is in breach of these Terms or if the OTP provided by the Recipient does not match. If the Recipient for whatever reasons is unavailable to collect the Goods, or if a valid OTP is not entered at the time of delivery, we will return the Goods to the Sender or the User, towards which the User shall have to pay such additional fee as may be applicable.
You will be able to track the movement of your Goods through the live-tracking facility available on the Application through services provided to Pidge by third-parties. Though live-tracking may be reliable, it may also be prone to inaccuracies due to network issues. Pidge does not give any assurance with respect to the accuracy of the live-tracking system available on the Application.
By giving us the Goods in the tamper-proof bag, you hereby appoint us as your agent, and as agent solely for the delivery of the Goods to the Recipient. In some instances, local authorities may require additional documentation confirming our appointment. You hereby agree that your confirmation and agreement to these Terms are the confirmation of our appointment as your agent for the limited purpose as set forth above.
Pidge offers a standard price for its Services which is currently calculated on the basis of distance, regardless of the size or value of the goods. Our fees for the Services shall be charged on a per transaction basis, where prior to processing your request we will inform you about the fee payable. You will be required to pay upfront for the Services through integrated payment platforms connected to the Platform. In case any payments are due and payable by you after the completion of Services, for any reason whatsoever, you will be required to clear the payment towards such fee before you place another request for our Services.
We do not issue any physical copies of the invoices for rendering our Services; however, you will always be able to view the e-copy of your invoices on your Application and upon your request on the Application, a copy of the invoice will be delivered to your registered e-mail address after successful completion of our Services.
