The NaviGoGo Services are designed to provide you with information on journeys you may wish to take, and provide you with options as to how to travel on those journeys. While the NaviGoGo Services can be used to make Bookings with Providers, you are responsible for selecting the Journeys you wish to make and making the Bookings.

7.2 We cannot guarantee the availability of all journey options when you use the NaviGoGo Services. Availability of a journey can only be recognised when we confirm your booking via e-mail We use all reasonable endeavours to ensure the accuracy of the information provided for Journeys on the NaviGoGo Services, but cannot guarantee all information is correct and will take all reasonable steps to notify you of errors and to correct any errors. You can report any errors to us by writing to contact@navigogo.co.uk or by phoning our customer service team (0330 678 0455).

7.3 How we will accept your Bookings. You will submit an order for a Journey by selecting "Book and Pay" or other similar confirmation of acceptance in the order flow. By placing the order you are agreeing to these terms applying to the Booking and you will be responsible for any costs associated with the Journey and set out as part of the order.

7.4 After you have placed an order, we will confirm whether an order has been accepted or not via email within 1 hour. Where an order has been accepted, at that point there will be a Booking and a contract will come into existence between you and us.

7.5 If we cannot accept a Booking. If we are unable to accept a Booking, we will inform you of this via email and we will not charge you for the service. This might be because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because the relevant Provider is unable to provide the Journey, because we have identified an error in the price, because you have insufficient funds in your sQuid account at the time you are making the Booking or because you have not provided sufficient details to complete the booking.

7.6 Your booking number. We will assign a Booking number to your Bookings and tell you what it is when we accept your Bookings. It will help us if you can tell us the Booking number whenever you contact us about a Booking.

7.7 Geographical Restriction. During the Trial, the NaviGoGo Services are solely for the promotion of our services in Dundee and North East Fife. During the trial you will not be able to plan or book a journey out with these areas using the NaviGoGo services. These areas are defined by the postcodes in section 3.1 above.

8. Your rights to make changes

If you wish to make a change to the services you have ordered please contact us by telephone. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the services or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change. If we cannot make the change or the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to you, you may want to end the contract see below.

Provided we do this we will not be liable for delays caused by the event. If there is a risk of a substantial delay or the Journey is cancelled by the Provider, please contact us to arrange a refund or an alternative journey.

10.3 What will happen if you do not give required information to us. You are required to keep your details on your Account up-to-date and to give us accurate information about each Journey. If you give us incomplete or incorrect information, or your Account is not up-to-date, we will not be responsible for the Journeys or any part of them being incorrect if this is caused by you not giving us the information we or any of the Providers need.

13.2 Summary of your legal rights. We are under a legal duty to supply services that are in conformity with these terms. The Consumer Rights Act 2015 says that you can ask us to repeat or fix a service if it's not carried out with reasonable care and skill, or get some money back if we can't fix it.

14. Estimates, Price and payment

14.1 Where to find the fixed price and estimated price for the Journeys. The price or estimated price of the Journeys (which include VAT) will be the price indicated on the order pages when you plan a Journey using the NaviGoGo Services. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the Journeys advised to you is correct at time of planning and that estimated prices are accurate. However please see clause 14.3 for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the Journey you book and clause 14.4 to explain how the estimated price is calculated and what they mean.

14.2 We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your Booking date and Journey date, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.

14.3 What happens if we got the price wrong. It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Journeys you book may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your order so that, where the Journey's correct price when you book is less than our stated price at your order date, we will charge the lower amount. If the Journey's correct price when you book is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your Booking.

14.4 Estimated Prices. When planning or booking a journey that does not have a fixed price, we provide an estimated price based on the information in your account and the details of your planned journey (based on the minimum time and distance). This estimated price may differ from the actual price once you have completed your journey. The Estimated Price is provided as an indicator only and you are responsible for paying the actual price at the end of your trip. An Estimated Price is provided for journeys using the following: taxis, bike hire and car club hire.

14.5 When you must pay and how you must pay. Payment for all Bookings during a month period will be taken from your sQuid Account within the first few days of the following month. We will email you details of your Bookings and the funds we intend to take two (2) working days before we take any funds from your sQuid Account (your Bookings Summary) and it is your responsibility to ensure there are adequate funds in your sQuid Account to cover the amount we intend to take.

14.6 What to do if you think a Bookings Summary is wrong. If you think a Bookings Summary is wrong please contact us promptly to let us know. You will not have to pay any interest until the dispute is resolved. Once the dispute is resolved we will charge you interest on correctly invoiced sums from the original due date.

14.7 What if there is not adequate funds in your sQuid Account. If you do not have adequate funds in your sQuid Account to cover a Bookings Summary, we will notify and request that you increase your sQuid Account balance to cover the relevant invoice.

15. Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you

15.1 We are responsible to you for foreseeable loss and damage caused by us. If we fail to comply with these terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breaking these terms in respect of each affected Booking or our failing to use reasonable care and skill, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen, for example, if you discussed it with us during the sales process.

15.2 We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors; for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; and for breach of your consumers rights in relation to the NaviGoGo Services that we cannot exclude.

17.1 These terms incorporate our Privacy Policy.

17.5 Any additional information voluntarily given by you for a specific journey at the time of booking will be shared with the journey Providers. You do not have to provide the additional information if you choose not to. Additional information covers a contact telephone number or vehicle requirements for a specific taxi journey.

17.6 You have the right to be forgotten which means that you have the right to have information about you removed when you no longer want it published, stored or processed. If you would like to exercise this right, please write to us at contact@navigogo.co.uk.

18. Other important terms

18.1 We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation. We will always tell you in writing if this happens and we will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under the Bookings

18.2 You may not transfer your rights to someone else.

18.3 Nobody else has any rights under this contract. This contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms. Neither of us will need to get the agreement of any other person in order to end the contract or make any changes to these terms.

18.4 If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms 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.

18.5 Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the products, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.

18.6 Which laws apply to this contract and where you may bring legal proceedings. These terms are governed by English law and, during the Trial, you can bring legal proceedings in respect of the services in either the Scottish or the English courts.
