[Updated and Effective as of: 5th of September 2018]
Welcome, and thank you for using Wayyd’s Services. The Services are provided by Wayyd Pty Ltd (ACN 603 854 137, herein referred to as Wayyd), located at 170 Hulcombe Road, Highvale QLD 4520 AUSTRALIA.
By accessing and using our Services, you agree to these Terms of Service (“Terms”), which constitute a legally binding agreement (the “Agreement”) between you and Wayyd, and any other policy we uphold, and any other agreement Wayyd initiates with you whether explicit or implied.
You are not permitted to use our Services, or any of our platforms, apps, websites etc., if you do not uphold or agree to these Terms.
We reserve the authority to immediately terminate these Terms or any Services we provide to you or offer in general, or portions thereof, at any time at our discretion.
These Terms supersede any prior agreements or arrangements we may have had with you.
In the case where additional/supplementary terms may apply to certain Services, the same will be disclosed to you in connection with the applicable portion of the Services. Where there is a conflict between additional/supplementary terms and these Terms, the additional/supplementary terms shall prevail over these Terms with respect to the applicable portion of the Services.
These Terms are effective world-wide and may be changed from time to time, and although it is your responsibility to check this page from time to time to ensure you are up-to-date with our Terms, we will endeavour to communicate with you to inform you of any updates/changes. Your continued use of our Services, and your communications with us, assumes your consent to these Terms and any changes we may make.
You agree that you are the age of legal majority within the jurisdiction you live and use our Services in order to obtain an Account; in most cases you must be either a minimum age of 18 or 21. You must keep your details up-to-date, accurate, and complete. You will be entirely responsible for all activity conducted under your Account.
To be an Operator (driver or courier) on our platform, you must also meet the relevant verification requirements and also meet your local jurisdictions requirements to offer the services you offer to Users (passengers or senders) directly. As you will be operating your own hobby/business via our platform, the onus is on you to ensure you meet all the legal requirements as per your jurisdiction – as a ‘Driver’ on our platform for pre-planned (existing) journeys, you are in fact deemed to be doing it for non-Commercial purposes and only for subsidising costs such as fuel, parking, and tolls; and a direct transaction/receipt between you and your Passenger(s) occurs.
All users of our platform agree to behave in an orderly and descent manner, respecting others using our platform and/or accessing our Services. There will be no toleration for unwarranted aggression by any party, and suspension or complete deletion may be applied to any party abusing our Services and those who use our Services.
Any content you provide during the use of our Services via any device or access point shall remain your property; however you grant to Wayyd, without requirement for payment or further notice or consent, now and forever, a universal, irrevocable, ever-lasting, royalty-free licence, permission to sub-licence or duplicate in any manner such content, in any shape or form, across any of Wayyd’s business and third-party affiliates and services as we see fit and/or necessary.
You agree to meet any requirements as per your local jurisdiction requires in order to use or provide services such as transportation or logistics whether private or commercial; albeit our platform enables true peer-to-peer services, and as such for example in the case of ‘ride-share’, you are deemed to be conducting a non-Commercial service which is not a Public Passenger Service (such as ride-hail services), and is purely for cost subsidisation on an existing journey and is privately arranged.
You agree that you will not circumvent Wayyd’s platform in order to receive or provide transportation or logistics if you had initially been connected via Wayyd’s platform.
If you choose to become an Operator (driver/courier) you confirm that you meet all your local jurisdictions requirement to provide such transportation or logistics services; you also confirm that you are NOT getting paid from Wayyd, but rather that each transaction is one between you and the User (passenger/sender) directly and as such the Receipts generated for your amount will be under your name, sent to the User via Wayyd’s automated platform. Unless required by your local jurisdiction’s law for the provision of transportation or logistics services, Wayyd does not require you to display any brand or logo or marks of Wayyd.
You agree to receive a verification SMS for the purpose of registration, and you agree to continue to receive further communication from Wayyd via SMS/MMS.
Wayyd may from time-to-time enable the use of promotional codes (“Promo Code” or “Promo Codes”) either for credit or commission, donation, or other purposes. You must no duplicate or distribute Promo Codes without permission from Wayyd. Promo Codes will be governed by these Terms and may also contain peculiar terms not herein stated; where there is conflict between these Terms and the terms of a particular Promo Code, the Promo Code terms shall prevail. Promo Codes may be disabled by Wayyd at any time. Wayyd may at its discretion deduct or withhold a monetary amount in relation to a Promo Code where there is suspected or proven fraud or error or any other violation of a local law or these Terms of the terms of the Promo Code. During a promotion, such as first-time Passenger/Sender up to AU$10 credit on their first transaction, the Operator agrees to only be paid $2.00 for that particular $10 amount of the transaction; if the transaction exceeds $10, the Operator will be paid $2 plus whatever the addition would be above $10 for their offer/bid amount.
Our Services provide a platform, whether on a website or app, which enable third-party Operators (drivers and/or couriers) to provide their specific service to Users (passengers and/or senders). The services the Operators provide may include transit, rideshare, and/or logistics services. Operators directly Receipt the User for the service they have provided, and they are deemed to be operating their own hobby/business via our platform; Wayyd DOES NOT provide any such service, but only the technology to enable such communications and the provision of such services.
Wayyd and Wayyd’s licensors reserve all rights including those not expressly stated here. By agreeing to these Terms, Wayyd grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferrable, non-secondary- licensable, limited, and revocable licence to access and use, for non-commercial purposes, the Applications on your personal devices, and the website and platform, and any content and data made available through our Services.
You have no rights to use our Services except in the manner communicated in these Terms as a limited license, nor can you at will reference any of Wayyd’s company names, services, brands/logos/trademarks, or any other marks, or any of our licensors. Unless explicitly permitted by Wayyd you must not distribute in any manner or otherwise exploit, the Services Wayyd provides. You may not attempt to gain unauthorised access to or interfere with any aspect of the Services or any related systems, operations, or networks. You may not remove anything which is proprietary of Wayyd from any of the Services. You may not deconstruct any of the Services unless required and/or permitted by applicable law. You must not automate or manually conduct any process to scrape or index or in any other manner transmit data or mine data relating to the Services which may burden or hinder the functionality, operation, and efficiency of the Services.
Wayyd uses the 3rd party payment platform, Stripe, the Stripe API, and in conjunction, your Stripe account which we create on your behalf, to process credit and debit card transactions for your Account with Wayyd.
Wayyd and Stripe are independent entities, and nothing in Wayyd’s Terms of Service does, or attempts to, represent any partnership, agency, or employment relationship between Wayyd and Stripe.
Payment processing services for you on Wayyd’s platform are provided by Stripe and are subject to the Stripe Connected Account Agreement (https://stripe.com/au/connect-account/legal), which includes the Stripe Terms of Service (https://stripe.com/au/legal) (collectively, the “Stripe Services Agreement”) – these terms from Stripe have been updated in May 2018 and are in accordance to the EUs “GDPR” stipulations (you can learn more about Stripe’s conformance to the GDPR stipulations here: https://stripe.com/guides/general-data-protection-regulation). By agreeing to this Agreement or continuing to operate as in any capacity on Wayyd’s platform, you agree to be bound by the Stripe Services Agreement, as the same may be modified by Stripe from time to time. As a condition of Wayyd enabling payment processing services through Stripe, you agree to provide Wayyd accurate and complete information about you and your business, and you authorize Wayyd to share it and transaction information related to your use of the payment processing services provided by Stripe.
You expressly understand and agree that Wayyd shall not be liable for any payments and monetary transactions that occur through your use of the Service. You expressly understand and agree that all payments and monetary transactions are handled by Stripe. You agree that Wayyd shall not be liable for any issues regarding financial and monetary transactions between you and any other party, including Stripe.
You are responsible for all transactions (one-time, recurring, and refunds) processed through the Service and/or Stripe. Wayyd is not liable for loss or damage from errant or invalid transactions processed with your Stripe account. This includes transactions that were not processed due to a network communication error, or any other reason. If a transaction involving you is processed, it is your responsibility to verify that the transaction was successfully processed.
You understand that Wayyd uses the Stripe API to run the Service and that the Stripe API is subject to change at any time and such changes may adversely affect the Service. You understand and agree to not hold Wayyd liable for any adverse effects that actions (whether intentional or unintentional) on the part of Stripe may cause to your Stripe account, your Wayyd account, or your business.
You must not process stolen credit cards, or unauthorized credit cards through Stripe and/or your Wayyd account.
In the capacity of a User (passenger/sender), you will be charged prior to any trip/job. There are no additional charges other than what you will see as the final offer/bid, even if there are actual delays in transit, tolls, or any other charges the Operator has to bear. Wayyd DOES NOT have a time- distance algorithm for calculating charges, and in fact Wayyd does not have a metered/fared service.
As the actual service of providing transportation whether for people or goods is provided by an Operator (driver/courier), Wayyd only enables the charging, via Stripe, and Wayyd charges a connection fee in addition to the Operator’s cost to a User.
After each completed trip/job you will receive a receipt from the Operator and an Invoice from Wayyd. The receipt which comes from the Operator to you is for them providing the service for your trip/job; if the Operator is not registered with a business number, then their cost will be without tax and actually come to you as a ‘receipt’ as opposed to an ‘invoice’. E.g. For an Operator with an ABN you would have received an Invoice for $11.00 incl. GST; for an Operator without an ABN you will receive a Receipt for $11.00 (but no GST component). The Invoice will come from Wayyd (for the connection fee) and will include GST.
Wayyd has established two systems for charging:
Wayyd reserves the right to withhold payment to an Operator or a refund to a User, if there is suspected fraud and/or abuse of Wayyd or Wayyd’s payment systems, platform, and any of Wayyd’s Services, or in order to resolve a User’s and/or Operator’s dispute claim.
As a User (passenger/sender) you will be responsible for any cost of repair for damage to any of the Operators (driver/courier) property caused by you or anyone using your Account which is above general ‘wear and tear’ and necessary cleaning. If the Operator files a dispute relating to repair or cleaning, Wayyd may at its discretion charge you as the User the reasonable cost of repair or cleaning to assist the Operator – however there is no implied responsibility from Wayyd’s side as the matter must ultimately be resolved between the User and the Operator. Once the payment has been made for the damage, the amount is non-refundable.

By default, most browsers and phones will have cookies enabled, but you may turn them off manually.
