Without the prior written consent of G.P.E. or the Providers, your modification of the content, use of the content on any other site or networked computer environment, or use of the content for any purpose other than personal, non-commercial use, violates the rights of the owners of the Web Site and/or the Provider and is prohibited.  If you violate any of these Terms, your permission to use our Web Site immediately terminates without the necessity of any notice. G.P.E. retains the right to deny access to anyone at its discretion for any reason, including for violation of these Terms.  You may not use on your web site any trademarks, service marks or copyrighted materials appearing on this Web Site, including but not limited to any logos or characters, without the express written consent of the owner of the mark or copyright.  You may not frame, deep-link or otherwise incorporate into another web site any of the content or other materials on this Web Site without prior written consent of G.P.E.

This Web Site may contain links to other web sites (“Linked Sites”).  The Linked Sites are provided for your convenience and information only and, as such, you access them at your own risk.  The content of any Linked Site is not under G.P.E.’s control, and G.P.E. is not responsible for, and does not endorse, such content, whether or not G.P.E. is affiliated with the owners of such Linked Sites.  You may not establish a hyperlink to this Web Site or provide any links that state or imply any sponsorship or endorsement of your web site by G.P.E., or its affiliates or Providers unless given express written permission by the owner.

This Web Site may enable users to submit their own content to a chat area, message board, web log, or other forum (“forum”). Any forum on this Web Site is a free service to enable you to share comments about products and services available on our Web Site or to share information about topics of interest with other end users. If you participate in a forum within the Web Site, any information you disclose in such a submission will be publicly available, so you should exercise caution in deciding whether to disclose any personal, financial or other sensitive information there. By uploading or submitting any materials to a forum, you acknowledge and agree that the materials are not confidential or trade secret, and you automatically grant (or warrant that the owner of such materials has expressly granted) to us a perpetual, royalty-free, irrevocable, non-exclusive right and license to use, display and distribute such materials or incorporate such materials into any forum now known or later developed. G.P.E. cannot prevent other persons who access this Site from using submissions and personal information they find here, even if their use of that information violates the law, or your personal privacy and safety.

When participating in a forum, you should not assume that people are who they say they are, know what they say they know or are affiliated with those whom they say they are affiliated. Information obtained in a forum may not be reliable, and it is not a good idea to make travel decisions based solely or largely on information you cannot confirm. We cannot be responsible for the content or accuracy of any information posted by third parties and shall not be responsible for any decisions made based on such information.

While we appreciate your time and comments, we require that you refrain from including the following in your posts: (i) profanity, obscenities, hateful, threatening or harassing comments or images; (ii) discussion of illegal activities or intent; (iii) solicitations for commercial activities or other statements that do not generally relate to the designated topic of the forum; (iv) personally identifiable information such as phone numbers, addresses or URLs; (v) any information that violates any right of a third party or any law; and (vi) any software or other materials that contain a virus or other harmful component.  We are not responsible for moderating any forum or screening any content; however, we reserve the right to edit or remove content from any forum at any time and for any reason.

There is no fee for visiting the Web Site, using any forums, or reviewing listings of items for sale or rent.  If you decide to rent a bicycle or other equipment from our network of independent bike shops, you will be required to register on line, provide a valid credit card, and pay G.P.E. a rental reservation deposit fee, as described on the pages of this Web Site.  The balance of the reservation fee shall be payable directly to the bike shop on the day of rental.  You hereby agree to pay all applicable fees in connection with the services you select.  You also hereby authorize G.P.E. automatically to charge your credit card account for any and all fees incurred by you or anyone using your login ID and password in renting bicycles or other equipment, without the need to provide any further notice to you of the fees so incurred.  We reserve the right to change our price list and fees and to institute new charges at any time.  Your use of the Web Site following such changes constitutes your acceptance of any new or increased charges.  You acknowledge that all payments for services offered by G.P.E. are managed by an online payment platform serviced by Paypal or another third party payment provider.  When you wish to reserve a bicycle or other equipment, you must enter your credit card information on the Web Site.  G.P.E. then passes it along to the processor for payment.  You agree that G.P.E. shall not be liable in the event of error, fraud, identity theft, or other problems with credit card processing or online payment processing.

ALL CONTENT ON THIS WEB SITE IS PROVIDED “AS IS” AND WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED.  OTHER THAN THOSE WARRANTIES, WHICH UNDER THE U.S. LAWS APPLICABLE TO THESE TERMS, ARE IMPLIED BY LAW AND ARE INCAPABLE OF EXCLUSION, RESTRICTION, OR MODIFICATION, G.P.E. DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  Neither G.P.E., its affiliated or related entities, nor the providers, nor any person involved in the creation, production, and distribution of this Web Site warrant that the functions contained in this Web Site will be uninterrupted or error-free, that defects will be corrected, or that the servers that make the content available will be free of viruses or other harmful components.  The content that you access on this Web Site is provided solely for your convenience and information only. G.P.E. does not warrant or make any representations regarding the results that may be obtained from the use of this Web Site, or as to the reliability, accuracy or currency or currency of any information content, service and/or merchandise acquired pursuant to your use of this Web Site.

G.P.E does not warrant or guarantee the availability or performance of any bicycles or other equipment offered by independent bike shops on this Web Site.  G.P.E is not a party to, and is not obligated to monitor, any transaction between users and any bike shop as to any products, services, or advice. We do not guarantee, warrant, or make any claim as to the truthfulness of any bike shop listing.  You hereby release G.P.E, its officers, directors, employees, agents, subsidiaries, joint venturers, and other related parties from any claims, demands and damages of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with any disputes between you and any bike shop relating to any lease or purchase of bicycles or other equipment. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code §1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”

You expressly agree that use of this Web Site and participation in any activities described herein are at your sole risk.  YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT NEITHER G.P.E., NOR ITS AFFILIATED OR RELATED ENTITIES (INCLUDING ITS PROVIDERS), NOR ANY OF THEIR RESPECTIVE EMPLOYEES, OR AGENTS, NOR ANY PERSON OR ENTITY INVOLVED IN THE CREATION, PRODUCTION AND DISTRIBUTION OF THIS WEB SITE, IS RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE TO ANY PERSON OR ENTITY WHATSOEVER FOR ANY LOSS, DAMAGE (WHETHER ACTUAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE OR OTHERWISE), INJURY, CLAIM, LIABILITY OR OTHER CAUSE OF ANY KIND OR CHARACTER WHATSOEVER BASED UPON OR RESULTING FROM THE USE OR ATTEMPTED USE OF THIS WEB SITE OR ANY OTHER LINKED SITE.  By way of example, and without limiting the generality of the foregoing, G.P.E. and related persons and entities shall not be responsible or liable for any claim or damage arising from failure of performance, error, omission, interruption, deletion, defect, delay in operation, computer virus, theft, destruction, unauthorized access to or alteration of personal records, or the reliance upon or use of data, information, opinions or other materials appearing on this Web Site.  You expressly acknowledge and agree that G.P.E. is not liable or responsible for any defamatory, offensive or illegal conduct of other subscribers or third parties. Some jurisdictions may not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages. In such jurisdictions, G.P.E.’s liability is limited to the greatest extent permitted by law.

G.P.E. assumes no liability or responsibility for any (i) errors, mistakes, or inaccuracies of content; (ii) personal injury or property damage, of any nature whatsoever, resulting from your access to and use of our Web Site or any bicycles or other equipment rented from our independent network of bike shops; (iii) failure of any bike shop to fulfill its obligations; (iv) unauthorized access to or use of our secure servers and/or any and all personal information stored therein; (v) interruption or cessation of transmission to or from the Web Site; or (vi) errors or omissions in any content or for any loss or damage incurred as a result of the use of any content posted, emailed, transmitted, or otherwise made available through the Web Site.

Notwithstanding any provision of these Terms to the contrary, your sole and exclusive remedy for any liability relating to or arising out of these Terms or your use of the Web Site, regardless of the form in which any legal or equitable action may be brought, shall be to terminate these Terms and discontinue your use of the Web Site.

In no event shall G.P.E.’s liability relating to or arising out of the rental of any bicycle or other equipment exceed the applicable rental reservation deposit fee actually paid to G.P.E.  Requests for refunds must be made in writing no later than 30 days after the rental reservation start date.  All refunds are also subject to G.P.E.’s cancellation policy.

This limitation of liability section applies whether the alleged liability is based on contract, tort, negligence, strict liability, or any other basis, even if G.P.E has been advised of the possibility of such damage. The foregoing limitation of liability shall apply to the fullest extent permitted by law in the applicable jurisdiction.

Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the limitation or exclusion of liability for incidental or consequential damages. Accordingly, some of the above limitations may not apply to you.

You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless G.P.E. and the Providers, its and their officers, directors, employees, affiliates, agents, licensors, and suppliers from and against all losses, expenses, damages and costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, resulting from any violation by you of these Terms.

These Terms are for the benefit of G.P.E. and its Providers, its and their officers, directors, employees, affiliates, agents, licensors, and suppliers. Each of these individuals or entities shall have the right to assert and enforce these Terms directly against you on its or their own behalf.

Unless otherwise specified, the content contained in this Web Site is presented solely for your convenience and/or information.  This Web Site is controlled and operated by G.P.E. from its offices in Illinois.   Those who choose to access this Web Site from locations outside the United States and Canada do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable.  You may not use or export the materials in this Web Site in violation of U.S. export laws and regulations.  These Terms shall be governed by, construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of Illinois, as they are applied to agreements entered into and to be performed entirely within Illinois.  Subject to the following paragraph on arbitration, any action you, any third party or G.P.E., brings in a court of law or equity in connection with any matters related to this Web Site, shall be brought only in either the state or Federal courts located in Illinois, and you expressly consent to the jurisdiction of said courts.  If any provision of these Terms shall be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms of Use, or the breach thereof, or your use of the Web Site, other than a controversy or claim relating to the validity or enforcement of intellectual property rights, shall be settled by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules, and judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitration proceedings shall be conducted in Chicago, Illinois. Neither party nor the arbitrators(s) may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration hereunder without the prior written consent of both parties.

We abide by the federal Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) by responding to notices of alleged infringement that comply with the DMCA and other applicable laws.
