The User enters into this agreement regarding the use of the Nimber services with Nimber Limited, a company registered in England and Wales with company registration number 09359744, whose registered office is at c/o Legalinx Limited, 1 Fetter Lane, London EC4A 1BR ("Nimber").
Nimber is a matching service and not a delivery transport solution.
It is not a commercial service, rather it allows Bringers to be reimbursed in full or in part their costs for travelling to another location.
Senders cannot send any items that would be illegal to be transported in any country. For greater certainty the following items must not be transported between Senders and Bringers including but not limited to: firearms or components of firearms, weapons, corrosive or hazardous substances, drugs and tools capable of being used as weapons and explosives.
In addition Nimber has the right to object to any item that may be transported using the Service, if Nimber is aware of what is to be transported and has reasonable grounds for objecting.
If you have concerns over what items may be transported using the Service, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If Bringer’s activity is commercial then it must adhere to all laws governing transport of goods, including and not limited to having the required insurance, licenses and/or permits.

3. The service
3.1 General; changes to the Service
By entering into this Agreement, the User obtains access to the Service as it is offered from time to time. Nimber is free to add, remove or change features or functionality of the Service. Nimber will make reasonable efforts to inform you of such changes by making available such information on the website or otherwise.
3.2 Core features of the service
Nimber matches Senders and Bringer on the move to utilize available transport capacity. The Service matches Senders with a need to have something transported with Bringers willing to do the transportation. All registered Users can act both as Senders and Bringers. The Service provides the ability to match these two parties. After matching, Users finalise transportation arrangements directly. Nimber provides Usage Rules which contains recommended terms and conditions between the Sender and the Bringer.
Users enter into a direct agreement with each other and Nimber is not a contractual party to such agreement entered into between Users. Nimber merely supplies the medium for Users to connect with each other and to facilitate payments for Services and other added-value services rendered between Users.
While Nimber requests information to identify registered Users, the Service is dependent on the Users providing correct information. Consequently, Nimber does not take any responsibility for the actions or omissions of any Users connecting via the Service and neither does Nimber assume any responsibility for the accuracy or reliability of User information or any other information on the Service.
The Bringer understands that items sent may be packaged or wrapped, but it is not a requirement that the item is packaged or wrapped. Any damage to the item due to lack of packaging or wrapping is not the responsibility of the Sender.
As a User of the Service you agree to receive communications from Nimber. This communication is related to you being a user of the Nimber Service, and might happen through e-mail, phone, SMS, in app push messages or post. The content of this communication might be service messages, status messages related to tasks, matching messages and newsletters from Nimber. You can at any time unsubscribe from the newsletters, and change the notifications settings. Some system critical messages cannot be turned off.
The User can be a natural or a legal person (including a company). All Users are required to register a profile in order to use the Service.
Nimber uses the information you provide to facilitate the contact between different Users of the Service so that a request can be handled by the Driver undertaking to perform the transportation service.
5.2 Registration and information
When you register as a User, we might need the following information:
- Credit card information
- Facebook, Twitter, profile information (and such mediums)
- Bank Account number for payments between Users
- Picture of the User
- Other information about the User that will contribute to the verification process.
The information is used to establish contact between Users, manage the Agreement and to take reasonable measures to verify the identity of Users.
In addition, you may need to provide further information in connection with each individual transaction which allows the Sender to determine the means of transport, etc.
Although we use techniques that aim to verify the accuracy and truth of the information provided by our users, user verification on the internet is difficult. Nimber cannot and does not confirm, and is not responsible for ensuring, the accuracy or truthfulness of Users' purported identities or the validity of the information which they post on our site.
5.3. Registration and Warranties upon Registration
To be able to use Nimber's Services the User must register an account prior to using any of the Services. The User warrants and represents that all of the data provided by the User for registration is true, accurate and complete. The User shall report any changes in the registration data to Nimber without undue delay. Failure to adhere to said condition is a fundamental breach of this Agreement.
6. Usage rules
The following usage rules shall apply for your use of the Service:
- The Matching Fee is an integral part of our service. It must be paid regardless of whether the transaction is completed within the Nimber system or not.

- When transporting animals, i.e. pets or livestock, Bringer is responsible to adhere to all laws governing said transport, including having the proper licenses & permits. Notwithstanding said laws, the Bringer warrants that it will take every possible precaution to safeguard the wellbeing of animals during transport and that it has the expertise and ability to carry out such a delivery.
- The Users are solely responsible for customs, legal and/or financial issues related to the transport of goods, including but not limited to issues arising out of cross border transports.
- If the User is aware that any unauthorized use of their authentication credentials and/or violations of their confidentiality, the User undertakes to promptly communicate it to Nimber.

7. Nimber's obligations - Availability
Nimber shall use reasonable endeavours to ensure that Service will be available at all times. However the User acknowledges and agrees that events related to maintenance, security or capacity requirements, and/or events beyond Nimber's control may result in malfunctions or interruptions of the Service.

Where you are subject to a jurisdiction that does not allow the disclaimer of warranties or exclusion of damages, such disclaimers and exclusions may not apply to you.
You accept sole responsibility for the legality of your actions under laws applying to you and the legality of any items you transport using the Service.
Where the preceding exclusion fails to apply, if Nimber is found liable, our liability to you or to any third party is limited to the greater of (a) the aggregate amount of Matching Fees incurred during the 6 months prior to the action giving rise to the liability, or (b) £100.
Nothing in this User Agreement shall limit or exclude our liability for fraudulent misrepresentation, for death or personal injury resulting from our negligence or the negligence of our agents or employees or for any other liability that cannot be limited or excluded by law.
By providing information to Nimber, you as a User, represent and warrant that you are entitled to submit the information and that the information is accurate, true, not confidential, and not in violation of any contractual restrictions or other third party rights.
You shall indemnify and hold Nimber harmless for all damages, losses and costs related to all third party claims, charges, and investigations, caused by (1) your failure to comply with this Agreement, including, without limitation, your submission of information that infringes third party rights or applicable laws or your failure to comply with the Usage Rules, (2) any information you submit to the Services, and (3) any activity in which you engage on or through the Service.

11. Intellectual property rights
Nimber shall retain any and all intellectual property rights to all features and content of the Service, including but not limited to pictures, video, audio, text, design elements and source code. Subject to compliance with the terms of this Agreement, the User is granted a royalty-free (subject to any fees for accessing the Service being paid), non-exclusive, non-transferable license to use the Service in accordance with this Agreement throughout the term of this Agreement.
12. Prices and payment
The price consists of several elements, (i) the price for the transport service which is solely subject to agreement between the Bringer and Sender, (ii) the price for the Service provided by Nimber (the “Matching Fee”) and, (iii) price of other premium services that Nimber may add from time to time.
The price for the service offered by the Bringer is agreed by the Sender and shall be as set out in the agreement between the Users. The Sender will confirm any changes to the price if such a price is changed from the original price.
The Matching Fee includes VAT (when applicable), and is based on the price of transport cost as agreed between the Users. It may change from time to time, depending on the delivery type, distance, speed or for any other reason, at the sole discretion of Nimber. Such fee will always be communicated by Nimber.
Senders may pay the agreed price for the transport service by using a credit card or via any other method authorised by Nimber.
Senders shall pay the Matching Fee directly to Nimber by using a credit card immediately following the completed transport, and the Sender hereby consents to Nimber charging the Matching Fee from the credit card provided upon registration. Nimber reserves the right to charge its Matching Fee and the Bringer payment upon successfully matching Sender and Bringer, or hold said amount on the Sender Credit Card prior to completed delivery.
Where a Sender fails to pay the Matching Fee due, interest shall accrue at the rate specified in the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 from the date that payment is due. After a period of 10 days, an administration charge of £50 shall be added to the amount due to Nimber and Nimber reserves the right to collect payment through court proceedings. If a Sender wishes to use the Service where any fees are outstanding from earlier transactions, those fees must be cleared in full by the Sender before he may use the Service again.
Payment processing services for Senders and Bringers on Nimber are provided by Braintree and/or Stripe‚ and will in the case of Stripe be subject to the Stripe Connected Account Agreement, which includes the Stripe Terms of Service (collectively, the “Stripe Services Agreement”). By agreeing to these terms or continuing to operate as a Sender or Bringer on Nimber, 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 Nimber enabling payment processing services through Stripe, you agree to provide Nimber accurate and complete information about you and your business (if relevant), and you authorize Nimber to share it and transaction information related to your use of the payment processing services provided by Stripe.
As part of the service, Nimber may process payment from Sender to Bringer. Nimber is only able to transfer the Bringer payment if it is has successfully collected it from Sender. Failure to collect said fee, for any reason whatsoever, will result in Bringer not receiving the Fee. Upon a successful collection of the Bringer Payment, Nimber will make reasonable efforts to transfer the payment within a reasonable timeframe. Subject to receipt of payment from the Sender, and no other issues arising, Nimber aims to make payment to the Bringer within 5 working days.
Nimber will not transfer the payment should a dispute arise between the Users and/or if there is a claim for damage or theft by Sender. Furthermore, Nimber reserves the right to recover any Bringer payments and Bringer agrees to return any payment received if Nimber, at its sole discretion, finds that Bringer was responsible for any damage or theft.
13. Nimber Quality Guarantee
As part of its service, Nimber provides a quality guarantee (insurance) to Senders. Should an item be damaged during transport, or should the item be lost or go missing due to Bringer mishandling, Nimber will reimburse the Sender for any valid claim, up to £ 250 unless specified otherwise in the sending process. The coverage amount will always be communicated during the Send process. Nimber may offer additional coverage, in some cases, against additional fees. Nimber reserves the right to reject any claim if it reasonably concludes that said claim is false or fraudulent.
Nimber reserves the right to recover all or parts of the Fee from any payment made to Bringer and/or withhold payment to Bringer against a valid claim for damage or theft. Nimber, at its sole discretion, will determine if the claim is valid.
If the Bringer that is responsible for the damage, is acting in a commercial capacity, Nimber reserves the right to recover said costs from Bringer.
14. Termination due to breach
Nimber may restrict, suspend or terminate the account of any User who abuses or misuses the Services or if the User violates the Agreement, without further notice to the User. Any attempt to circumvent the service would be grounds for suspension and termination. Circumvention of the service includes and not limited to concluding transactions outside the system (i.e. trying to avoid concluding deliveries within the system etc.) with the attempt to avoid using Nimber’s payment system and avoiding any matching fee associated with using the service. Nimber reserves the right to recover the fee, plus an administrative fee of £100 from Bringer or Sender, or both.
15. Miscellaneous Provisions
15.1 Nimber may transfer its rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation.
15.2 If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the clauses of this Agreement operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
16. Disputes, Choice of law and jurisdiction
If a dispute arises between you and Nimber, we encourage you to first contact us directly to seek to resolve the matter by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We will consider reasonable requests to resolve the dispute through alternative dispute resolution procedures, such as mediation or arbitration, as alternatives to litigation. This Agreement between you and Nimber shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of England.
You and Nimber both agree to submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts. The use of the phrase "non-exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts" means that if you were able to bring a claim arising from or in connection with this Agreement against us in Court, an acceptable court would be a court located in England, but you may also elect to bring a claim in the court of another country instead. However in whatever Court you bring a claim, English law will apply.
