SocioTransit, Inc. (hereafter referred to as "SocioTransit", "SocioTransit.com", "www.SocioTransit.com",www.sociotransit.com, sociotransit.com, "we", "us", or "our".) provides an online platform service that matches people seeking traveler/ transporter to carry/ buy/ pick-up & drop any kind of goods/things/packages from one place to another. Travelers who are carrying/ transporting goods*/things*/ packages*(please see list on last page of Terms and conditions of prohibited goods/things/motives which strictly prohibits usage of this SocioTransit service. Wherever word good/goods is used it means : goods*/things*/packages* ) will get money when service goes full-fledge on chargeable basis for that particular transit; while wanter (who needs goods to be transported) will be benefited by quicker transportation and lower courier/transportation charges. Thus it makes a market place or platform for users of website to request goods*/things*/packages* and to carry the same.
Transaction between two parties should be strictly through online payment. Two parties may talk to each other through chat/message protocol but they should not be able to share contact details (i.e. Phone numbers, E-mail IDs, FB Contacts, and Messenger IDs) until the transaction has been agreed by both parties.
Thus this is a step forwards towards Sustainability, reduce carbon footprint and utilize excess luggage space of traveller effectively rather than making special goods transit travels.

When you confirm a transaction requested by a needer/wanter, SocioTransit will send you an email, text message or message via the Application confirming such transaction, depending on the selections you make via the Site, Application and Services.
The fees displayed in each Listing are comprised of the transaction Fees (defined below) and the needer/wanter Fees (defined below.) Where applicable, Taxes may be charged in addition to the transaction Fees and needer/wanter Fees. The transaction Fees, the needer/wanterFees and applicable Taxes are collectively referred to in these Terms as the "Total Fees". The amounts due and payable by a needer/wanter solely relating to a Traveller's earnings are the "Transaction Fees". Please note that it is the Traveller and not SocioTransit which determines the transaction Fees. The transaction Fee may include a carrying fee, porter fee, space utilization fee in luggage, urgency fee etc, at the Traveller's discretion.
SocioTransit charges a fee to needer/wanterbased upon a percentage of applicable transaction Fees which are the "Needer/wanter Fees". The needer/wanter Fees are added to the transaction Fees to calculate the Total Fees (which will also include applicable Taxes) displayed in the applicable Listing. SocioTransit will collect the Total Fees at the time of transaction confirmation (i.e. when the Traveller confirms the transaction within 24 hours of the transaction request) and will initiate payment of the transaction Fees (less SocioTransit's Traveller Fees (defined below)) to the Traveller within 24 hours of when the Traveller confirms he has delivered what was asked by needer/wanter and when needer/wanter confirms to the service that he has got what he requested for. (except to the extent that a refund is due to the needer/wanter)
Appointment of SocioTransit as Payment Agent for Travellers
Each Traveller hereby appoints SocioTransit as the Traveller's limited agent solely for the purpose of collecting payments made by needers/wanters on behalf of the Traveller. Each Traveller agrees that payment made by a needer/wanter to SocioTransit shall be considered the same as a payment made directly to the Traveller and the Traveller will make the item/goods/package available to needer/wanter in the agreed upon manner as if the Traveller has received the transaction Fees. Each Traveller agrees that, SocioTransit may, in accordance with the cancellation policy selected by the Traveller and reflected in the relevant Listing, (i) permit the needer/wanter to cancel the transaction and (ii) refund to the needer/wanter that portion of the transaction Fees specified in the applicable cancellation policy. In accepting appointment as the limited authorized agent of the Traveller, SocioTransit assumes no liability for any acts or omissions of the Traveller.
Please note that SocioTransit does not currently charge fees for the creation of Listings. However, you acknowledge and agree that SocioTransit reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to charge you for and collect fees from you for the creation of Listings. Please note that SocioTransit will provide notice of any Listing fee collection via the Site, Application and Services, prior to implementing such a Listing fee feature.
Bookings and Financial Terms for Traveller
The Travellers, not SocioTransit, are solely responsible for honoring any confirmed transactions and making available any item/goods/package reserved through the Site, Application and Services. If you, as a needer/wanter, choose to enter into a transaction with a Traveller for the transaction of an item/goods/package, you agree and understand that you will be required to enter into an agreement with the Traveller and you agree to accept any terms, conditions, rules and restrictions associated with such transaction imposed by the Traveller. You acknowledge and agree that you, and not SocioTransit, will be responsible for performing the obligations of any such agreements, that SocioTransit is not a party to such agreements, and that, with the exception of its payment obligations hereunder, SocioTransit disclaims all liability arising from or related to any such agreements. You acknowledge and agree that, notwithstanding the fact that SocioTransit is not a party to the agreement between you and the Traveller, SocioTransit acts as the Traveller's payment agent for the limited purpose of accepting payments from you on behalf of the Traveller. Upon your payment of amounts to SocioTransit which are due to the Traveller, your payment obligation to the Traveller for such amounts is extinguished, and SocioTransit is responsible for remitting such amounts, less SocioTransit's Traveller Fees, to the Traveller. In the event that SocioTransit does not remit any such amounts to a Traveller, such Traveller will have recourse only against SocioTransit.
Listings for transaction will specify the Total Fees. As noted above, the Traveller is required to either confirm or reject the transaction within 24 hours of when the transaction is requested (as determined by SocioTransit in its sole discretion) or the requested transaction will be automatically cancelled. If a requested transaction is cancelled (i.e. not confirmed by the applicable Traveller), any amounts collected by SocioTransit will be refunded to such needer/wanter, depending on the selections the needer/wanter makes via the Site and Application, and any pre-authorization of such needer/wanter's credit card will be released, if applicable.
You agree to pay SocioTransit for the Total Fees for any booking requested in connection with your SocioTransit Account if such requested bookings are confirmed by the applicable Traveller. In order to establish a transaction pending the applicable Traveller's confirmation of your requested transaction, you understand and agree that SocioTransit, on behalf of the Traveller, reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to (i) obtain a pre-authorization via your credit card for the Total Fees or (ii) charge your credit card a nominal amount, not to exceed one dollar ($1), or a similar sum in the currency in which you are transacting ( e.g. one euro or one British pound etc) to verify your credit card. Once SocioTransit receives confirmation of your booking from the applicable Traveller, SocioTransitwill collect the Total Fees in accordance with the terms and conditions of these Terms and the pricing terms set forth in the applicable Listing. Please note that SocioTransit cannot control any fees that may be charged to a needer/wanter by his or her bank related to SocioTransit's collection of the Total Fees, and SocioTransit disclaims all liability in this regard.
Travellers may choose to include security deposits in their Listings ("Security Deposits"). Each Listing will describe whether a Security Deposit is required for the applicable transaction. If a Security Deposit is included in a Listing for a confirmed transaction, SocioTransit will, in its capacity as the payment agent of the Traveller, use its commercially reasonable efforts to obtain a pre-authorization of the needer/wanter's credit card in the amount the Traveller determines for the Security Deposit within a reasonable time prior to the needer/wanter's check-in at the applicable Traveller's Accommodation. SocioTransit will also use its commercially reasonable efforts to address Traveller' requests and claims related to Security Deposits, but SocioTransit is not responsible for administering or accepting any claims by Travellers related to Security Deposits, and disclaims any and all liability in this regard.
In consideration for providing the Services, SocioTransit collects service fees from Travellers and needer/wanters ("Service Fees"). Service Fees are made up of two (2) components: (i) needer/wanter Fees and (ii) a fee that is charged to the Traveller based upon a percentage of the amount of the transaction Fees ("Traveller Fees"). Where applicable, Taxes may also be charged in addition to the Traveller Fees. TravellerFees are deducted from the transaction Fees before remitting the transaction Fees to the Traveller, within 24 hours of when the needer/wanterconfirms he has got what he had asked for. Needer/wanter Fees are, as noted above, included in the Total Fees.
Balances will be remitted by SocioTransit to Travellers via check, PayPal, direct deposit or other payment methods described on the Site or via the Application, in the Traveller's currency of choice, depending upon the selections the Traveller makes via the Site, Application and Services. Please note that for any payments by SocioTransit in currencies other than local currency, SocioTransit may deduct foreign currency processing costs from such payments. More information on foreign currency processing cost deductions will be available via the Site and Application. Except as otherwise provided herein, service sees are non-refundable.
Cancellations and Refunds
If, as a needer/wanter, you cancel your requested transaction before the requested transaction is confirmed by a Traveller, SocioTransit will cancel any pre-authorization to your credit card and/or refund any nominal amounts charged to your credit card in connection with the requested transaction within a commercially reasonable time. If, as a needer/wanter, you wish to cancel a confirmed transaction made via the Site, Application and Services, either prior to or after Travel of Traveller, the cancellation policy of the Traveller contained in the applicable Listing will apply to such cancellation. Our ability to refund the transaction Fees and other amounts charged to you will depend upon the terms of the applicable cancellation policy. Details regarding refunds and cancellation policies are available via the Site and Application.
If a Traveller cancels a confirmed booking made via the Site, Services, and Application, (i) SocioTransit will refund the Total Fees for such booking to the applicable needer/wanterwithin a commercially reasonable time of the cancellation and (ii) the needer/wanter will receive an email or other communication from SocioTransit containing alternative Listings and other related information. If the needer/wanter requests a transaction from one of the alternative Listings and the Traveller associated with such alternative Listing confirms the needer/wanter's requested booking, then the needer/wanter agrees to pay SocioTransit the Total Fees relating to the confirmed transaction in the alternative listing, in accordance with these Terms. If a Traveller cancelled a confirmed transaction and you, as a needer/wanter, have not received an email or other communication from SocioTransit, please contact SocioTransit.
In some instances, needer/wanter may be required to make recurring, incremental payments toward the Total Fees owed for a confirmed transaction (collectively, "Recurring Payments"). More information on Recurring Payments will be made available via the Site, Application and Services, if applicable. If Recurring Payments apply to your payment obligations for Total Fees owed for a confirmed booking, you authorize SocioTransit, on behalf of the Traveller, to collect the Total Fees in the increments and at the frequency associated with the applicable Recurring Payments, identified on the Site, Application and Services.
Some Travellers may pledge to donate a portion of the funds they receive from confirmed bookings made via the Site, Application and Services to a particular cause or charity. We do not control, and will not take any responsibility or liability for, whether the Traveller does in fact make the donation he or she pledged to make.
You understand and agree that you are solely responsible for determining your applicable Tax reporting requirements in consultation with your tax advisors. SocioTransit cannot and does not offer Tax-related advice to any users of the Site, Application and Services. Additionally, please note that each Traveller is responsible for determining local indirect Taxes and for including any applicable Taxes to be collected or obligations relating to applicable Taxes in Listings. Where applicable, or based upon request from a Traveller, SocioTransit may issue a valid VAT invoice to such Traveller.
As part of the Services, SocioTransit provides a feature through which Members may view Total Fees for various Listings in foreign currencies. You understand and agree that these views of Total Fees are for informational purposes only and are not the official Total Fees for the Listings. If you (as a needer/wanter) request a transaction, you will be notified of the currency in which you will be charged together with the corresponding amount of Total Fees, if your transaction is confirmed by a Traveller. The currency in which you will be charged will be determined by SocioTransit based on the payment method you select and the location of the transaction in the Listing you are booking. If the currency in which you will be charged is different from the currency chosen by the Traveller to receive payment, SocioTransit will be responsible for the required currency conversion processing, including the costs thereof, which will be calculated based on the most current applicable foreign exchange rate that SocioTransit has uploaded to the Site as of the date and time that your transaction is confirmed (the "Applicable Exchange Rate"). You acknowledge that the Applicable Exchange Rate used for currency conversion processing may not be identical to the applicable market rate in effect at the specific time such processing occurs because: (i)although SocioTransit updates the Applicable Exchange Rate on a regular basis, it does not update such rate on a real-time basis; and (ii) the Applicable Exchange Rate may include an incremental cost or margin that is not included in the applicable market rate. For the avoidance of doubt, SocioTransit will retain any profits (and will bear any losses) that result from such currency conversion processing due to changes in the applicable foreign exchange rate between the date your transaction is confirmed and the date SocioTransit makes payment to a Traveller. SocioTransit's liability in such case will be limited to paying the difference of sum 'equivalent to transaction's exchange rate variation only '.
Damage to item/goods/package
As a Traveller, you are responsible for carrying the item/goods/package in condition as asked by needer/wanter in good faith without using, damaging, stealing, breaking or doing any type of harm to item/goods/package. In case this happens, the transaction will be treated as 'not successful' and traveller will lose any type of earning from this transaction.
Both Travellers and needer/wanters agree to cooperate with and assist SocioTransit in good faith, and to provide SocioTransit with such information and take such actions as may be reasonably requested by SocioTransit, in connection with any complaints or claims made by Users relating to transactions or with respect to any investigation undertaken by SocioTransit or a representative of SocioTransit regarding use or abuse of the Site, Application or the Services. If you are a needer/wanter, upon SocioTransit's reasonable request, and to the extent you are reasonably able to do so, you agree to participate in mediation or similar resolution process with a Traveller, at no cost to you, which process will be conducted by SocioTransit or a third party selected by SocioTransit, with respect to losses for which the Traveller is requesting payment from SocioTransit. We don't take any type of Traveller's guarantee or needer/wanter guarantee till further notified on this terms & conditions.

The intention of using service is MORE a social attribute and thus, earning revenue while doing so. Having said this, SocioTransit will not be responsible for any conflict arising by this what-so-ever it may be in any court.
