General Terms & Conditions
1. Pied Parker, Inc. (the “Company,” “we,” “us,” or “Pied Parker”; possessively
“our”) strives to provide the most user friendly, convenient, and efficient ways for users to
advertise their available parking spaces, or for users to find and easily book available parking
spaces (“Parking Spaces” or “Parking Spots”).
2. The Company’s platform connects two users: one user who is listing an available Parking Spot (a “Lister”) and another user who is in search of a Parking Spot (a “Parker”), to allow them to make a transaction for temporary usage of the Parking Spot (a “Parking Reservation”). A Lister should be either the owner or the operator of the Parking Spot.
3. If you find parking that you would like to use from one of our Listers, you may book it through the App. You will notify us upon arrival and departure from the Parking Spot via your smart device and you will be charged for the agreed upon amount of time.
4. Authorization of the charge will be completed either at the time the reservation is scheduled or soon after departure.
Scope of Agreement
1. This is a binding agreement. BY USING THE NATIVE APPLICATION, WEB
AND/OR WEBSITE OF PIED PARKER, INC. (THE APP), OR ANY SERVICES, PRODUCTS, FEATURES, CONTENT, OR
APPLICATIONS PROVIDED IN CONNECTION WITH THE APP (THE “SERVICE”), YOU, THE USER, (THE “USER,” “YOU,”
“YOUR,” AND “YOURSELF”) AGREE TO ABIDE BY THESE GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (“TERMS”), AS THEY MAY
BE AMENDED BY US FROM TIME TO TIME AT OUR SOLE DISCRETION. Pied Parker, Inc. will post a notice on
the App when these Terms have been changed or otherwise updated. It is your responsibility to review
these Terms as you agree to them and if at any time you find these Terms unacceptable, you must
immediately leave the App and cease all use of the Service and the App. A user may also be a
“Lister,” “Parker,” or both.
2. IMPORTANT: PLEASE REVIEW THE ARBITRATION AGREEMENT SET FORTH BELOW CAREFULLY, AS IT WILL REQUIRE YOU TO RESOLVE DISPUTES WITH PIED PARKER ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS THROUGH FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION. BY ENTERING THIS AGREEMENT, YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL OF THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT AND HAVE TAKEN TIME TO 2 CONSIDER THE CONSEQUENCES OF THIS IMPORTANT DECISION, INCLUDING WAIVER OF CLASS ACTION AND REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING CLAUSE.

4. If you are a Lister of a Parking Space and you wish to rent your Parking Space with us, you will be bound by our Lister Agreement.
5. The App is merely a venue in which Listers may advertise their available Parking Spaces, and a parking User (“Parker”) may seek an available Parking Space along with the Service(s) to facilitate transactions between the Listers and Parkers. Use of a Parking Space occurs for a fixed duration of time (a “parking period” or “reservation”), as denoted by “check-in” and “check-out” for hourly, daily, weekly, and flat rate occupancy. “Check-out” corresponds with the time in which the Parker agrees to depart a listed Parking Space.

6. We reserve the right to remove any content from the App or the Service, terminate your registration or membership and restrict, suspend, or cease your access to our Service at any time for any reason, including, but not limited to, upon receipt of 6 claims or allegations from third parties or authorities relating to such content, or if we are concerned that you may have violated the Terms.

You will not be compensated for any User Content. You agree that Pied Parker may publish or otherwise disclose your username or real name in connection with your User Content.

10. All Content that you access by using the App or the Service is at your own risk.
11. THIRD PARTY WEBSITES. The App may contain links to other websites. If you choose to visit other websites, we are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of those other websites, and it is your responsibility to review the content and privacy policies at those websites to confirm that you understand and agree with their policies. We ask that you do not click on any suspicious links or advertisements and promptly report to us if you encounter any suspicious content. 7 We are not responsible for any damages caused by visitation of third party websites via any link contained in the App.
12. We will not be responsible for any breach of these Terms and Conditions caused by circumstances beyond our reasonable control. Although we aim to offer you the best service possible, we make no promise that the Service or App will meet your requirements. We cannot guarantee that the Service will be fault-free.
13. The App may include links to other web sites or material that are beyond our reasonable control; we are not responsible for such content on any site outside the App. You may link to our home page, provided you do so in a way that is fair and legal and does not damage our reputation or take advantage of it, but you must not establish a link in such a way as to suggest any form of association, approval or endorsement on our part where none exists.
14. We will not be liable for any business, financial, or economic loss nor for any consequential or indirect loss (such as lost reputation, lost profit or lost opportunity) arising as a result of your use of the App whether such loss is incurred or suffered as a result of your negligence or otherwise, including, but not limited to, access of web sites or material that are beyond our reasonable control.
Temporary Suspensions of Access to Content
1. Your access to the App may be occasionally restricted to allow for repairs,
maintenance or the introduction of new facilities or services and any such
interruptions shall not constitute a breach by us of these terms. We will attempt to
restore the Service in a timely manner.
2. In most circumstances, we will attempt to provide some advanced notice before scheduling maintenance. We make no guarantees, however, with respect to the availability of the App or the Service. We may conduct maintenance at any time with or without notice to you.
3. If, for some reason, our maintenance interferes with a currently scheduled Parking Reservation, such that your Parking Reservation is dropped or suspended, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a resolution of the issue.
1. Users may refer friends and other third parties through the application. A
attempting to refer a third party will receive a unique referral code to send to the
third party. When the third party signs up using the referral code, the user that
referred that third party (“referring party”) will receive ordinarily (any applicable
promotional rate notwithstanding) up to 5% of the revenue (“referral fee”) that the
third party receives from Parking Spaces that the third party lists (up to $100 per third party
parking host); this 5% comes
from Pied Parker’s share of the revenue, not the third party’s share of the revenue.
In other words, for ordinary transactions (not subject to a promotional rate), a Lister
will receive 75% of revenue and Pied Parker will receive 25% (not including any
applicable transaction fees charged). If the Lister were referred by a referring party,
then the Lister will receive 75%, the referring party will receive 5%, and Pied Parker
will receive 20%. Pied Parker reserves the right to adjust the referral rate in the
2. These referral amounts generated may be sent to your bank account at the end of each month using the bank account information you provided. If you do not receive payment, you may need to update your bank account information with us if you have not done so. Monthly summaries including referral amounts should be sent to the email you listed at sign-up.
1. Tax regulations may require us to collect appropriate tax information from
Users, or to withhold taxes from payouts to Users. For instance, IRS regulations may require that we
collect an IRS Form W–9 and/or 1099 Form from certain US Users, and an appropriate IRS Form W–8
(e.g. Form W–8BEN) from certain non-US Users, especially ones with at least one Listing in the
2. As for the W-9, the form purpose is to get a TIN (taxpayer identification number), but for many Listers who have SSN, they do not need it. Pied Parker may provide 17 applicable 1099 forms to Users. Users may request a W-9 Form from the IRS directly.
3. Because Listers generally work for themselves as independent contractors, they may receive the 1099-K forms each year. For the Form 1099-K, the amount shown in this form is all the money that Pied Parker collected from Parkers for parking spaces that Listers provided. This will be more than Listers actually received in payment, since it includes Pied Parker's commissions and other expenses. Thus, Pied Parker will provide Listers a tax summary which can be used to translate the 1099-K information into some of the income and expenses to report on Schedule C. Generally, Users may want to wait until the 1099-K form is complete before filing tax returns.
4. Pied Parker is required to file a Form 1099-K when reporting payments to a Lister that exceed both 200 transactions and $20,000 during the course of the year.
5. Pied Parker may present a breakdown of how much you made, what fees Pied Parker took out, and how many hours you rent the parking spot while on the app.
6. For users who generate income from referral fees Pied Parker would provide the 1099-MISC forms each year. The 1099-MISC forms are issued to users who generate income over $600 from referral fee.
7. Users are solely responsible for keeping the information in their tax forms current, complete, and accurate. If you as a User fail to provide us with documentation that we determine to be sufficient to alleviate our obligation (if any) to withhold taxes from payments to you (e.g., if you are a Lister within the United States and you fail to provide us with a completed IRS Form W-9 or 1099), we reserve the right in our sole discretion to freeze all payouts to you until resolution and/or withhold such amounts as required by law.
8. Depending on the governing jurisdiction, Listers may be required to pay additional parking provider taxes in addition to ordinary income taxes for revenue generated from listed Parking Spaces. Please check your local, state, and federal tax laws for further information.
9. Unless otherwise stated, you are responsible for any taxes or duties associated with your share of the sale of the services and reservations, including any related penalties or interest.
10. You will pay Pied Parker for the services without any reduction for Taxes. If Pied Parker is obliged to collect or pay Taxes, the Taxes will be invoiced to you. Upon receiving an invoice, you may provide Pied Parker with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority or other documentation providing evidence that no tax should be charged. If you are required by law to withhold any Taxes from your payments to Pied Parker, you must provide Pied Parker with an official tax receipt or other appropriate documentation to support such payments.
11. You are also responsible for taxes related to income generated from referral fees (collectively “Taxes”). Referral amounts may be included on monthly summaries sent to the email you listed at sign-up.
12. Nothing in this section should be construed as tax advice or legal advice, and should not be taken as to apply to any individual case or situation. We recommend that you seek tax advice from your own tax adviser.
Cancellations and Refunds
1. You agree to abide by the policies regarding cancellation included in this
agreement. If you are a Parker, you must agree to the cancellation policy of this agreement in
addition to the cancellation policies of the Parker Agreement and the Parker- Lister License
Agreement. If you are a Lister, you must agree to the cancellation policy of this agreement in
addition to the cancellation policies of the Lister Agreement and the Parker-Lister License
2. Reservations may be booked On-demand or in advance by Scheduled Reservation, depending on services offered in your area. Depending on such availability, a Lister may designate which parking spaces may be booked On-demand or by Scheduled Reservation. A Lister may make the Parking Space available for both On-demand or Scheduled Reservation by toggling one or more options while listing the Parking Space, depending on options currently available.
3. No cancellation fee will be charged for cancelling an On-demand booking unless a Parking Space is already booked.
4. During a daily Scheduled Reservation, a Lister may be charged a cancellation fee and compensation fee for the Parker in order to cancel a current reservation on the same day. The Lister shall be obligated to pay a cancellation fee for parking on the Parking Space, if:
a. the Lister cancels a weekly or monthly Scheduled Reservation within 24 hours before the nearest scheduled check-in time;
b. the Lister cancels a current reservation (i.e., after check-in) before the check- out time in case of booking On-demand; or
c. Pied Parker confirms that the reserved Parking Space has become unavailable because it is of a condition such that it may render the Parking Space unsafe or impossible to enter, exit, or otherwise navigate.
5. During a daily Scheduled Reservation, a Parker may also be charged a cancellation fee and compensation fee to cancel a current reservation on the same day, at least in the amount of the cost of such reservation plus any applicable fees. In some cases, for a daily Scheduled Reservation, the Lister may not cancel the current reservation at all.
6. The Lister or Parker may be refunded amounts paid for reservations that are more than 24 hours from the time of cancellation, in the case of weekly parking.
7. In the case of a monthly Scheduled Reservation, the Lister or Parker may be refunded amounts paid for reservations that are greater than 7 days before the time of cancellation. It is free for a Lister or Parker to cancel a monthly Scheduled Reservation a month in advance.
8. If you as a Parker are unsatisfied with the condition of a Parking Space, you may report the conditions of the Parking Space to email@example.com. Pied Parker will investigate the matter and determine if a refund is appropriate. You as a Parker may also rate the Parking Space appropriately.
9. If a Parking Space is of a condition such that it may render the Parking Space unsafe or impossible to enter, exit, or otherwise navigate, a Parker may indicate that the Parking Space has become unavailable through the App. If a Parker indicates that the Parking Space has become unavailable, we will attempt to refund a Parker’s purchase and the matter will be investigated.
10. If a Lister removes a Parking Space from the App while the Parking Space is occupied by a Parker during a current booking, the Parker may not extend the booking, and must depart the Parking Space by the end of the period of booking availability.
11. For On-demand bookings, the maximum period of booking availability may be 24 hours; the Parker can select “depart” and rebook the Parking Space before the end of a period of booking availability as long as the Parking Space is still listed as available by the Lister and is not booked by another Parker.
12. For Scheduled Reservations, the maximum period of availability may vary by day, week, and month. A Lister may, for example, list a Parking Space as being available for the month, but restrict which days and hours on those days the Parking Space is available each week. The Lister may, for instance, list the spot for monthly parking but only Tuesday through Friday, 9 A.M.-4 P.M. for each week.

5.
