YOU UNDERSTAND THAT THIS AND OTHER SECTIONS IN THIS RELEASE AND THE RENTAL AGREEMENT DESCRIBE AND RELATE TO THE RISKS RELATING TO YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES. YOU AFFIRM THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTAND, AND ACCEPT THE ENTIRE RELEASE AND THE RENTAL AGREEMENT. YOU AGREE THAT BICYCLES ARE MACHINES THAT MAY MALFUNCTION, EVEN IF THE BICYCLE IS PROPERLY MAINTAINED, AND THAT SUCH MALFUNCTION MAY CAUSE INJURY.

II. Directions and Additional Terms of Use.

Section 3 Helmets; Safety.

Motivate strongly recommends that all users of the Services wear a Snell, CPSC, ANSI, or ASTM approved helmet that has been properly sized, fitted, and fastened, according to the manufacturer's instructions. Wearing a Snell, CPSC, ANSI, or ASTM approved helmet, properly sized, fitted, and fastened, while cycling may protect against an injury or may lessen the severity of an injury caused by an impact to the head; however, bicycle helmets are not 100% effective, do not protect against all head injuries, and do not protect against other injuries. MOTIVATE AND THE OTHER RELEASED PERSONS DO NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THE QUALITY OR SAFETY CHARACTERISTICS OF ANY HELMET, AND YOU AGREE THAT MOTIVATE AND THE OTHER RELEASED PERSONS ARE NOT LIABLE FOR ANY INJURY SUFFERED BY MEMBER WHILE USING ANY OF THE SERVICES, WHETHER OR NOT YOU ARE WEARING A HELMET AT THE TIME OF INJURY. YOU ASSUME ALL RISK OF NOT WEARING A HELMET OR OTHER PROTECTIVE CLOTHING AND GEAR. You agree that, when using any of the Services, You might need to take additional safety measures and precautions that are not specifically addressed in this Release.

Section 4 Term and Termination.

The term of this Release begins when You first access the Services, and ends 10 years after Your last use of the Services.

You may terminate Your use of the Services at any time; provided, however, that the term of this Release continues in accordance with this Section. This Release remains in full force and effect, in accordance with its terms and conditions, after any termination of Your right to use any of the Services, regardless of how the Release is terminated.

Section 6 Mandatory Arbitration; Class Action Waiver.

This Release is governed by, and must be construed and enforced in accordance with, the laws of the State of California, excluding principles of conflicts of laws.

You agree that any dispute or Claim relating in any way to Your use of the Services will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that You may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this Release.

There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator must follow the terms of this Release as a court would.

To begin an arbitration proceeding, You must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing Your claim to Bay Area Motivate, LLC at 220 36th Street #2, Brooklyn, NY 11232. The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS in accordance with the JAMS Streamlined Arbitration Procedure Rules in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated, excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by JAMS's rules. We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, we will not seek attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. The arbitration shall take place in San Francisco, California or at such other venue (and pursuant to such procedures) as is mutually agreed upon.

YOU AND MOTIVATE EACH AGREE THAT ANY DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCEEDINGS WILL BE CONDUCTED ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT IN A CLASS, CONSOLIDATED OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. If for any reason a Claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration You and Motivate each agree that such proceeding shall take place solely by means of judicial reference pursuant to California Code of Civil Procedure section 638. We also both agree that You or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.

You have the right to opt out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth above by sending written notice of Your decision to opt out to legal@motivateco.com with the subject line, "FORD GOBIKE ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER OPT-OUT." The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of Your first use of the Services, otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of those paragraphs. If You opt out of these arbitration provisions, Motivate also will not be bound by them.

This Arbitration and Class Action Waiver section shall survive any termination of your Account or the Platform.

In the event that the arbitration provisions above are found not to apply to You or to a particular claim or dispute, either as a result of Your decision to opt out of the arbitration provisions or as a result of a decision by the arbitrator or a court order, You agree that the venue for any such Claim or dispute is exclusively that of a state or federal court located in San Francisco County, California. You and Motivate agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within San Francisco County, California for the purpose of litigating all such claims or disputes.

Further, if Motivate prevails in litigation against You to enforce its rights under this Release, Motivate shall be entitled to its costs, expenses, and reasonable attorneys' fees (whether incurred at or in preparation for trial, appeal, or otherwise) incurred in resolving or settling the dispute, in addition to all other damages or awards to which Motivate may be entitled.

Section 7 Waivers.

No waiver of any breach of any provision of this Release is a waiver of any other breach or of any other provision of this Release. The terms of this Release may be waived or amended only in writing and only by the party that is entitled to the benefits of the term being waived or amended.

For good and valuable consideration, the receipt and adequacy of which are hereby acknowledged, You do hereby knowingly, voluntarily, and irrevocably: (1) give Your full and unconditional consent to Motivate, the Released Persons, and their respective affiliates, successors, and assigns to use at any time and from time to time, without any restriction, Your appearance and voice in photographs, videos, and other recordings, on all websites and for all press, promotional, advertising, publicity, and other commercial purposes, including all formats and media, whether now known or hereafter devised, throughout the world and in perpetuity; (2) grant to Motivate, the Released Persons, and their respective affiliates, successors, and assigns (a) the right to photograph, videotape, and otherwise record Your appearance and voice, at any time and from time to time, (b) all rights, copyrights, title, and interests in the results of such photographs, videos, and other recordings, as a work for hire for copyright purposes, and (c) the right to use, reproduce, exhibit, distribute, transmit, alter, and exploit, at any time and from time to time and as Motivate or the Released Persons may decide in their sole discretion, the photographs, videos, and other recordings, or any component thereof, and all related merchandising, promotions, advertising, and publicity; and (3) waive, release, and discharge all Released Persons from all Claims that You have or may have for any libel, defamation, invasion of privacy, right of publicity, infringement of copyright, or violation of any right granted by You in this paragraph.

Section 8 Cumulative Remedies.

All rights and remedies granted under or referred to in this Release are cumulative and nonexclusive, and resort to one does not preclude the availability or applicability of another or to any other right, remedy or defense provided by law.

Section 9 Final Agreement; Modification by Motivate.

This Release and the Rental Agreement contains the complete, final, and exclusive integrated agreement between the parties with respect to its subject matter. This Release and the Rental Agreement supersede all other prior agreements, written or oral, relating to such subject matter, including the Bay Area Bike Share Bicycle User Agreement, Liability Waiver, and Release. At any time and from time to time, and without Your consent, Motivate may unilaterally amend, modify, or change this Release, in its sole discretion and without any notice or cause, and by continuing to use any Services after any amendment, modification, or change, You have agreed to be bound by all such amendments, modifications, and changes. You must carefully review this Release on a regular basis to maintain awareness of all amendments, modifications, and changes. Whenever a change is made to this Release, Motivate will post a notification on the Platform.

Section 10 Severability.

If a court deems any provision of this Release, including but not limited to the binding arbitration and class action waiver provisions, illegal or otherwise unenforceable for any reason, You agree that such provision shall be severed from the Release and shall be inoperative, and the remainder of the Release shall remain operative and shall be binding on the parties.
