GT Forge Driver Terms of Service
This following user agreement describes the terms and conditions on which GT Forge, Inc. offers you access to the GT Forge platform.
Welcome to the user agreement (the “Agreement” or “User Agreement” or “Terms of Service”) for GT Forge (the “GT Forge Platform”), an application owned and operated by GT Forge Inc., a Delaware corporation, whose principal office is located at 237 West 35th Street, Suite 200, New York, NY 10001. This Agreement is a legally binding agreement made between you (“You,” “Your,” or “Yourself”) and GT Forge, Inc. (“GT Forge,” “We,” “Us” or “Our”).
GT Forge is willing to license, not sell, the GT Forge Platform to You only upon the condition that You accept all the terms contained in this Agreement. By signing up with or by using the GT Forge Platform, You indicate that You understand this Agreement and accept all of its terms. If You do not accept all the terms of this Agreement, then GT Forge is unwilling to license the GT Forge Platform to You.
This Agreement shall apply to each and every version of the GT Forge Platform that You acquire from Apple, Inc. (“Apple”) and its digital distribution platform (the “Apple App Store”), and/or from Google, Inc. (“Google”) and its digital distribution platform (“Google Play”), and/or from the GT Forge Website. Your acquisition of each such GT Forge Platform is governed by the terms and conditions set forth in the Licensed Application End User License Agreement published by Apple and/or Google and/or GT Forge (the “User Agreement”), the terms of which are incorporated by reference, inclusive of their definition of You as the ”user” or “end-user.” In the event of any conflict between the terms of this Agreement and those contained within Apple’s Licensed Application End User License Agreement or Google’s Terms of Service, you agree that the terms set forth in this Agreement shall control. Furthermore, you agree that while Apple and Google are not parties to this Agreement and have no obligations with respect to the GT Forge Platform, Apple/Google and its subsidiaries are third party beneficiaries of this Agreement. Accordingly, by accepting this Agreement, You agree that Apple/Google shall have the right to enforce this Agreement against You as a third party beneficiary.
The GT Forge Platform provides a means to enable persons who seek transportation to certain destinations (“Riders”) to be matched with independent vehicle owners and/or operators (“Drivers”). For purposes of this Agreement these services shall collectively be defined as the “Services”. This Agreement describes the terms and conditions that will govern your use of and participation in the GT Forge Platform.
Please read this Agreement carefully before using the Services. You must read, agree with and accept all of the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement, which includes those terms and conditions expressly set out below and those incorporated by reference, before You use any of the Services. By using any of the Services, You become a Participant in GT Forge and a User of Services available on the GT Forge Platform (“Participant” or “User”) and You agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement with respect to such Services. If you do not agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this agreement, please do not use or access GT Forge or register for the Services provided on GT Forge.
GT Forge does not provide transportation services, and GT Forge is not a transportation carrier, nor is it a licensed dispatching base; rather it is a service provider that uses its Platform and technology to provide the Services described herein. It is up to the Driver to decide whether or not to offer a ride to a Rider contacted through the GT Forge Platform, and it is up the Rider to decide whether or not to accept a ride from any Driver contacted through the GT Forge Platform. Any decision by a user to offer or accept transportation once such user is matched through the GT Forge Platform is a decision made in such user’s sole discretion. GT Forge offers information and a method to connect Drivers and Riders with each other, but does not and does not intend to provide transportation services or act in any manner as a transportation carrier, and has no responsibility or liability for any transportation services voluntarily provided to any Rider by any Driver using the GT Forge Platform. GT Forge is not the employer of any Driver using the GT Forge Platform.
All payments made by Passengers to Drivers shall only be made through the GT Forge Platform. Cash and/or forms of direct payment are strictly prohibited. Neither Drivers nor Passengers may make or accept payments for services rendered in cash under any circumstances. All Charges shall be facilitated through Stripe, Inc., GT Forge’s third-party payment processing service.
GT Forge, at its sole discretion, may make available promotional offers with different features to any of our customers. These promotional offers, unless made to You, shall have no bearing whatsoever on Your offer or contract.
Changes to Terms, Conditions and Fees.
GT Forge may, in its sole discretion change its terms, conditions, and/or fees effective seven (7) days from the date such change is posted on the GT Forge Platform and appears in these Terms and Conditions, or the date we notify You of such change, whichever is earlier. If You object to any such changes, Your sole recourse will be to cease using the GT Forge Platform and related Services, and to cease contracting with Us. Your continued use of the GT Forge Platform following any such change or changes shall constitute Your acknowledgement of and agreement to such changes. Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to restrict Our ability to terminate Your use of the GT Forge Platform in Our sole discretion. We encourage You to check this Agreement periodically if You are interested in keeping abreast of changes to Our terms, conditions and fees. This Agreement may not be otherwise amended except in writing and signed by you and GT Forge.
Errors in Payment.
You agree as a condition to using the GT Forge Platform to promptly review each earnings statement We issue to you for errors. In the event You believe an error has been made, You agree to contact us at: email@example.com within fourteen (14) days of the date of the earnings statement with Your concerns so We may investigate same. You further agree that once fourteen (14) days has elapsed following our issuance of an earnings statement to you, each item listed on the statement shall, unless questioned within the fourteen (14) day period, be deemed correct and to have been accepted as correct by You.
In the event that a Driver reports to GT Forge that a Rider has, in any manner, soiled or damaged the Driver’s vehicle, GT Forge will seek to recover the cost of cleaning and/or repair from the Rider (the “Damage Charge”). If such Damage Charge is paid by the Rider, same shall be remitted to Driver. GT Forge reserves the right (but is not obligated) to verify or otherwise require documentation prior to seeking Damage Charges from a Rider. In the event that damage expenses incurred exceed the Damage Charge collected by GT Forge, then the Driver may pursue further claims against the Rider.
All Drivers operating in New York are independent vehicle owners and/or operators and, are expected to procure insurance in accordance with local applicable regulations.
Our Services are available only to, and may only be used by individuals who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law.

You are solely and fully responsible for all activities that occur under Your password or account. GT Forge has no control over the use of any User’s account and expressly disclaims any liability derived therefrom.
