Terms of Service

Last Updated: 8/31/2021

These Terms contain an arbitration agreement and class action waiver that apply to all claims brought against Truckup in the United States. Please read them carefully.

These Terms of Service (the “Terms”) apply to your use of truckup.com and all related apps, platforms, and services (the “Platform”). All references to “us” (and similar words such as “we” and “our”) mean Truckup LLC, a Missouri limited liability company. 

Please review these defined terms which are important for understanding these Terms:

  • You: All references to “you” and similar words such as “your” mean the individual using the Platform (and if you are using the Platform on behalf of a business entity, it means both you and that business).

  • Service Provider: If you provide (or offer to provide) services to Customers through the Platform, then you (and if applicable, your business) will be deemed a “Service Provider.”

  • Customer: If you request services from a Service Provider through the Platform, then you (and if applicable, your business) will be deemed a “Customer.”

By using the Platform, you are agreeing to these Terms and the other policies referenced in these Terms. If you are using the Platform as a Service Provider, then you are also agreeing to the Service Provider Terms available at truckup.com/legal/service-provider-terms. Customers may be required to sign an additional Customer Agreement with us prior to receiving services. That agreement will have additional rights and obligations with respect to the relationship between the Customer and us, in addition to (but not in replacement of) these Terms.

If you or your business do not agree to the terms described here, then you and your business should not use the Platform.

Subject to your compliance with these Terms, we grant you a limited, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, non-transferable, and revocable license to access and use the Platform solely for your own use.

Please note that Your Content may be visible to other users of the Platform depending on the settings chosen by you. We cannot guarantee that they will not violate your rights with respect to Your Content and we disclaim all liability for uses by other users. You may request that we remove Your Content from the Platform, but we may not be able to do so and we are not obligated to do so. We also have no obligation to retain any of Your Content.

The Platform (including all design, software, code, and other content on the Platform) are either owned by us, licensed to us, or likely owned by another individual or business, and may be protected by copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret, or other intellectual property laws. Your use of the Platform does not grant any rights to you other than the right to use the Platform for their intended purpose as outlined in these Terms. 

Copyright/DMCA Policy

Warranties, Disclaimers, & Limitations of Liability

All references to “us” (and similar words such as “we” and “our”) in this section mean us and our parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, and licensors, and the owners, members, directors, officers, employees, contractors, and agents, of all of them.

Except as otherwise expressly agreed to by us in writing, the following provisions will apply with respect to your use of the Platform.

  • The Platform are offered on an “AS IS” and “AS AVAILABLE” basis without any representations or warranties of any kind.

  • Without limitation, we do not represent or warrant that (a) the information on the Platform is free from error; (b) the functionality of the Platform will be uninterrupted, secure, or free of errors; (c) defects in the Platform will be corrected; or (d) that the Platform or the equipment the Platform use are free of viruses.

  • To the fullest extent permitted by law, we disclaim all representations and warranties (express, implied, and statutory), including the implied warranties of merchantability, title, fitness for a particular purpose, accuracy of data, and non-infringement; and also all liability for identity theft and other misuse of your identity or content.

  • We do not vet content submitted by users of the Platform and we do not represent or guarantee that any such content is truthful or accurate or that you will have any right to use that content.

  • We do not warrant, endorse, guarantee, or assume responsibility for, any product or service advertised or offered by a third party on the Platform, or for any other websites or applications which are linked to or referenced in the Platform. If you use or purchase any such products or services, or if you click on any such links, you do so at your sole risk.

  • We will not be liable to you or any third party for any indirect, special, incidental, consequential, cover, or punitive damages (including lost profits or revenues, loss of data, loss of use, or costs of obtaining substitute goods or services), arising out of or in connection to the Platform or any links provided on the Platform.

  • All limitations of liability in these Terms will apply regardless of whether you or the third party bases your/its claim on contract, tort, strict liability, or any other legal theory, and whether we knew or should have known about the possibility of such damages.

  • All limitations of liability in these Terms will apply to the fullest extent permitted by law.

  • Subject to the limitations of liability in these Terms, our liability to you or any third party will not exceed the amount you paid for the Platform, or if the claim does not relate to a purchase, then $100.

  • Any cause of action or claim which you may have which arises out of or in connection to the Platform must be brought (if at all) within one year after the cause of action or claim accrued. Otherwise, such cause of action or claim will be permanently barred.

  • All of the foregoing limitations will apply even if a remedy fails of its essential purpose and to the fullest extent permitted by law.

Some jurisdictions do not allow certain disclaimers, limitations of liability, and exclusions. To the extent such jurisdictions’ laws are applicable to your use of the Platform, such disclaimers, limitations of liability, and exclusions, will be limited to the extent permitted by the applicable law.

Indemnification

You shall indemnify us and our affiliates and the respective owners, directors, officers, managers, employees, contractors, and other representatives of each (the “Protected Parties”) against all reasonable expenses including attorneys’ fees, costs, and damages of every kind (the “Losses”) arising out of any suit, claim, investigation, or proceeding, related to your use of the Platform, your breach of these Terms, your submission of content that violates third party rights or applicable laws, or your violation of applicable law, except to the extent that a Protected Party negligently or intentionally caused those Losses.

Arbitration

If a dispute arises between you and us related to your use of the Platform, these Terms, or our Privacy Policy, then the dispute shall be resolved by binding arbitration rather than in court (arbitration does not involve a judge or jury and court review of arbitration awards is limited). To initiate an arbitration, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent on file with the Missouri Secretary of State. The arbitration proceedings shall be held in Jackson County, Missouri. If this agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to your claim, then both you and we agree that any judicial proceedings will be brought in accordance with the governing law and jurisdiction/venue provisions below.

Notwithstanding the agreement to arbitrate above, either you or we may assert a claim seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Platform or intellectual property infringement (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration.

CLASS ACTIONS ARE PROHIBITED: All claims, including all arbitration claims, must be brought on an individual basis and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, consolidated, or representative proceeding. Class arbitrations, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitrations, are not allowed.

Miscellaneous

Termination

You may stop using the Platform at any time. However, you will remain liable for any damage you caused or may later cause to us or any part of the Platform.

We may temporarily or permanently suspend your access to (or terminate your right to use) all or parts of the Platform (this includes our right to suspend access to or terminate your user account). We may exercise that right in our sole discretion, at any time, with or without notice to you.

All provisions in these Terms which by their nature should survive termination of these Terms shall survive the termination.

Governing Law & Jurisdiction

Our provision of the Platform, your use of the Platform, these Terms, and our Privacy Policy, will all be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Missouri excluding its conflict of law principles. With respect to any dispute arising out of or related to any of the foregoing, each party consents to jurisdiction in, and the exclusive venue of, the state courts in Jackson County, Missouri, or if applicable, the U.S. District Court having jurisdiction over that county. 

Waiver of Jury Trial

You and us each waive trial by jury in all actions, proceedings, or counterclaims brought by either party against the other on any matter arising out of or in any way connected to our provision of the Platform, your use of the Platform, these Terms, or our Privacy Policy.

Entire Agreement

These Terms and the other policies referenced in these Terms set forth the complete and entire agreement between you and us relating to the subject matter in these Terms and supersede all other discussions, negotiations, proposals, and agreements, whether oral or written, previously discussed or entered into, by you and us relating to the subject matter in these Terms.

Waiver

The failure or delay by a party to exercise any right or remedy in these Terms shall not operate as a waiver of the same. The waiver by a party of a breach of any provision in these Terms shall not operate as a waiver of any subsequent breach. A waiver shall not be effective unless and until it is in written form and signed by the waiving party.

Severability

Each provision in these Terms shall be treated as separate and independent of the other provisions. Accordingly, if a court with competent jurisdiction declares a provision unenforceable, then the provision should be limited to the minimum extent necessary so that it remains enforceable. If such amendment is not possible, then the unenforceable provision should be deemed removed from these Terms, but the remaining provisions shall remain in full force.

Assignment

These Terms and all rights and licenses granted to you, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by us without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment by you will be null and void.

Power to Amend These Terms

We may amend these Terms at any time, for any reason, with or without notice to you. Your continued use of the Platform after the amended Terms are posted on the Platform will constitute your acknowledgment and agreement to the amended Terms. However, to the extent the amended Terms materially alter your rights or obligations in these Terms, the amended Terms will become effective upon the earlier of (a) your continued use of the Platform with actual knowledge of the amended Terms; or (b) 30 days after the amended Terms are posted on the Platform.
