Terms of Service / User Agreement
eRideShare has several security features and suggestions for the benefit of its users, but responsibility for safety rests with the user alone.
- You must be at least 18 years old to use this service.
- Please keep in mind that the internet is like a big city with all kinds of people in it. Don't travel with someone you don't trust. By using this service you agree that eRideShare.com and related persons are not responsible for your safety, comfort, or successful travel arrangements, or for your belongings, or for any other liability with regard to your use of this website.
- Postings and email to members using this service must be polite in tone.
- In order to better serve our user community, correspondence through this site may be monitored.
- We respect your privacy, and will not distribute member information, except in response to verified requests from law enforcement or emergency services, or to the organizer of a password-protected group that you participate in. IP addresses are collected for most transactions.
- Only one posting per ride, please. You can place additional information in the origin, destination, or comment fields to indicate flexibility in travel arrangements. A separate listing for the return leg of a round trip is welcome.
- Contacting other users and making postings are permitted only for personal use for the purpose of arranging a ride. Exceptions for organizations are as follows: Companies or groups can make postings for their internal carpools and trips without additional contact information such as URLs or phone numbers (so that contacts go through the site; we will help you arrange this with an organization-specific search option). Transportation companies or agencies, public or private, may make postings only by arrangement (based on compensation either by cross-linking or payment). In no case may emails be sent to members promoting a website or otherwise promoting a public or private venture or service, except by negotiated agreement; unauthorized contacts will be billed to your organization at $150 per contact.
- If any single part of this agreement is legally held to be invalid, the remainder of the agreement shall remain in force.
- All material in this site is ©1999-2008.
- This Terms of Service / User Agreement may be modified at any time without notice. The user agrees to observe updates and amendments to these Terms of Service as a condition for continued use of this web site.
