Referrals and Promotional Codes.
Allo may, in its sole discretion, create referral and/or promotional codes ("Promo Codes") that may be redeemed for discounts on future Services and/or a Third Party Provider's services, or other features or benefits related to the Services and/or a Third Party Provider's services, subject to any additional terms that Allo establishes. You agree that Promo Codes: (i) must be used for the intended audience and purpose, and in a lawful manner; (ii) may not be duplicated, sold or transferred in any manner, or made available to the general public (whether posted to a public form or otherwise), unless expressly permitted by Allo; (iii) may be disabled by Allo at any time for any reason without liability to Allo; (iv) may only be used pursuant to the specific terms that Allo establishes for such Promo Code; (v) are not valid for cash; and (vi) may expire prior to your use. Allo reserves the right to withhold or deduct credits or other features or benefits obtained through the use of the referral system or Promo Codes by you or any other user in the event that Allo determines or believes that the use of the referral system or use or redemption of the Promo Code was in error, fraudulent, illegal, or otherwise in violation of Allo’sTerms.
User Provided Content.
Allo may, in Allo’s sole discretion, permit you from time to time to submit, upload, publish or otherwise make available to Allo through the Services textual, audio, and/or visual content and information, including commentary and feedback related to the Services, initiation of support requests, and submission of entries for competitions and promotions ("User Content"). Any User Content provided by you remains your property. However, by providing User Content to Allo, you grant Allo a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, transferable, royalty-free license, with the right to sublicense, to use, copy, modify, create derivative works of, distribute, publicly display, publicly perform, and otherwise exploit in any manner such User Content in all formats and distribution channels now known or hereafter devised (including in connection with the Services and Allo’s business and on third-party sites and services), without further notice to or consent from you, and without the requirement of payment to you or any other person or entity.
You represent and warrant that: (i) you either are the sole and exclusive owner of all User Content or you have all rights, licenses, consents and releases necessary to grant Allo the license to the User Content as set forth above; and (ii) neither the User Content, nor your submission, uploading, publishing or otherwise making available of such User Content, nor Allo’s use of the User Content as permitted herein will infringe, misappropriate or violate a third party's intellectual property or proprietary rights, or rights of publicity or privacy, or result in the violation of any applicable law or regulation.
You agree to not provide User Content that is defamatory, libelous, hateful, violent, obscene, pornographic, unlawful, or otherwise offensive, as determined by Allo in its sole discretion, whether or not such material may be protected by law. Allo may, but shall not be obligated to, review, monitor, or remove User Content, at Allo’s sole discretion and at any time and for any reason, without notice to you.
Network Access and Devices.
You are responsible for obtaining the data network access necessary to use the Services. Your mobile network's data and messaging rates and fees may apply if you access or use the Services from your device. You are responsible for acquiring and updating compatible hardware or devices necessary to access and use the Services and Applications and any updates thereto. Allo does not guarantee that the Services, or any portion thereof, will function on any particular hardware or devices. In addition, the Services may be subject to malfunctions and delays inherent in the use of the Internet and electronic communications.
You understand that use of the Services may result in charges to you for the services or goods you receive ("Charges"). Allo will receive and/or enable your payment of the applicable Charges for services or goods obtained through your use of the Services. Charges will be inclusive of applicable taxes where required by law. Charges may include other applicable fees, tolls, and/or surcharges including a booking fee, municipal tolls, airport surcharges or processing fees for split payments. Please visit for further information on your particular location.
All Charges and payments will be enabled by Allo using the preferred payment method designated in your Account, after which you will receive a receipt by email. If your primary Account payment method is determined to be expired, invalid or otherwise not able to be charged, you agree that Allo may use a secondary payment method in your Account, if available. Charges paid by you are final and non-refundable, unless otherwise determined by Allo.
As between you and Allo, Allo reserves the right to establish, remove and/or revise Charges for any or all services or goods obtained through the use of the Services at any time in Allo’s sole discretion. Further, you acknowledge and agree that Charges applicable in certain geographical areas may increase substantially during times of high demand. Allo will use reasonable efforts to inform you of Charges that may apply, provided that you will be responsible for Charges incurred under your Account regardless of your awareness of such Charges or the amounts thereof. Allo may from time to time provide certain users with promotional offers and discounts that may result in different amounts charged for the same or similar services or goods obtained through the use of the Services, and you agree that such promotional offers and discounts, unless also made available to you, shall have no bearing on your use of the Services or the Charges applied to you. You may elect to cancel your request for Services at any time prior to the commencement of such Services, in which case you may be charged a cancellation fee on a Third Party Provider’s behalf. After you have received services or goods obtained through the Service, you will have the opportunity to rate your experience and leave additional feedback. Allo may use the proceeds of any Charges for any purpose, subject to any payment obligations it has agreed to with any Third Party Providers or other third parties.
In certain cases, with respect to Third Party Providers, Charges you incur will be owed directly to Third Party Providers, and Allo will collect payment of those charges from you, on the Third Party Provider’s behalf as their limited payment collection agent, and payment of the Charges shall be considered the same as payment made directly by you to the Third Party Provider. In such cases, you retain the right to request lower Charges from a Third Party Provider for services or goods received by you from such Third Party Provider at the time you receive such services or goods, and Charges you incur will be owed to the Third Party Provider. Allo will respond accordingly to any request from a Third Party Provider to modify the Charges for a particular service or good. This payment structure is intended to fully compensate a Third Party Provider, if applicable, for the services or goods obtained in connection with your use of the Services. In all other cases, Charges you incur will be owed and paid directly to Allo or its affiliates, where Allo is solely liable for any obligations to Third Party Providers. In such cases, you retain the right to request lower Charges from Allo for services or goods received by you from a Third Party Provider at the time you receive such services or goods, and Allo will respond accordingly to any request from you to modify the Charges for a particular service or good. Except with respect to taxicab transportation services requested through the Application, Allo does not designate any portion of your payment as a tip or gratuity to a Third Party Provider. Any representation by Allo(on Allo’s website, in the Application, or in Allo’s marketing materials) to the effect that tipping is "voluntary," "not required," and/or "included" in the payments you make for services or goods provided is not intended to suggest that Allo provides any additional amounts, beyond those described above, to a Third Party Provider you may use. You understand and agree that, while you are free to provide additional payment as a gratuity to any Third Party Provider who provides you with services or goods obtained through the Service, you are under no obligation to do so. Gratuities are voluntary.
Repair, Cleaning or Lost and Found Fees.
You shall be responsible for the cost of repair for damage to, or necessary cleaning of, vehicles and property resulting from use of the Services under your Account in excess of normal "wear and tear" damages and necessary cleaning ("Repair or Cleaning"). In the event that a Repair or Cleaning request is verified by Allo in Allo’s reasonable discretion, Allo reserves the right to facilitate payment for the reasonable cost of such Repair or Cleaning using your payment method designated in your Account. Such amounts, as well as those pertaining to lost and found goods, will be transferred by Allo to a Third Party Provider, if applicable, and are non-refundable.

ALLO COMMUNITY GUIDELINES
We want Allo to be enjoyable and safe for everyone. These ground rules are designed to ensure that riders and drivers have a five star ride when using Allo. Please take a moment to read them. Because whether you’re a rider trying to get from A to B — or a partner wanting to earn money as a driver — your behavior matters.
Respect each other
Treat your fellow riders and drivers as you would like to be treated yourself: with respect. Always try to be on time for your ride because nobody likes to wait. It’s common courtesy not to shout, swear or slam the car door. And by tidying up after yourself — whether it’s taking your trash home or cleaning up a spilled drink — you’ll keep the car in good condition and ensure the next person has a pleasant ride, too. Most important of all, remember that when you use Allo you will meet people who may look different or think differently from you. Please respect those differences. We want everyone to feel welcome when they use Allo.
Give riders and drivers some personal space
We all value our personal space and privacy. It’s OK to chat with other people in the car. But please don’t comment on someone’s appearance or ask whether they are single. As a passenger, if you need to make a phone call, keep your voice down to avoid disturbing your driver or other riders. And don’t touch or flirt with other people in the car. As a reminder, Allo has a no sex rule. That’s no sexual conduct between drivers and riders, no matter what.
Everyone wants to get from A to B safely. So please ensure that you follow the local law. Check out our rider safety tips. Whether you’re in the front or the back seat, buckle up when you get into the car — and please leave your guns at home. Of course, drivers have a particular responsibility when it comes to safety at Allo. That means keeping to the speed limit; not texting while driving; always using a phone mount; and never driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. And if you’re driving and feel tired, take a break. As the experts say, “sleep is the only true preventative measure against the risks of drowsy driving.”
Children must be supervised
Only adults can have an Allo rider account. If your child is using your account, a parent or guardian must be with them at all times.
Feedback makes us all better
Whether you are a rider or driver, please rate your journey at the end of the trip. Honest feedback helps ensure that everyone is accountable for their behavior. This accountability creates a respectful, safe environment for both riders and drivers. And if something happens during a ride — whether it’s a traffic accident or an argument — make sure to report it by tapping “Help” in the app so that our customer support team can follow up.
The guidelines below help explain some of the specific kinds of behavior that may cause you to lose access to Allo as a rider or driver.
WHY RIDERS CAN LOSE ACCESS TO ALLO
This policy helps explain the kinds of behavior that may lead riders to lose access to Allo. Please remember that if you’re traveling in a group, or you allow other people to take trips with your account, you are responsible for their behavior in the car.
Ensuring a respectful, safe environment for all drivers and riders
The way you behave while using Allo can have a big impact on the safety and comfort of drivers, as well as your fellow passengers. Courtesy matters. That’s why you are expected to exercise good judgment and behave decently towards other people in the car when riding with Allo— just as you would in any public place.
Here are some reasons why you could lose access to Allo as a rider:
· Damaging drivers’ or other passengers’ property. For example, damaging the car, breaking or vandalizing a phone, intentionally spilling food or drink, smoking, or vomiting due to excessive alcohol consumption.
· Physical contact with the driver or fellow riders. As our community guidelines make clear, you shouldn’t touch or flirt with other people in the car. As a reminder, Allo has a no sex rule. That’s no sexual conduct with drivers or fellow riders, no matter what. And you should never hit or otherwise hurt a driver or fellow passenger.
· Use of inappropriate and abusive language or gestures. For example, asking overly personal questions, using verbal threats, and making comments or gestures that are aggressive, sexual, discriminatory, or disrespectful.
· Unwanted contact with the driver or fellow passenger after the trip is over. For example, texting, calling, or visiting someone in person after a ride has been completed. Remember, in most countries you can call and text your driver directly from the Allo app without ever having to share your personal phone number. This means that your phone number stays anonymous and is never given to the driver.
· Breaking the local law while using Allo. For example, bringing open containers of alcohol or drugs into the car; traveling in large groups that exceed the number of seat belts in the car; asking drivers to break local traffic laws such as speed limits; or using Allo to commit a crime, including drug and human trafficking or the sexual exploitation of children.
If we are made aware of this type of problematic behavior, we may contact you so we can investigate them. Depending on the nature of the concern, we may put a hold on your account during our investigation. If the issues raised are serious or a repeat offense, or you refuse to cooperate, you may lose access To Allo. Any behavior involving violence, sexual misconduct, harassment, discrimination, or illegal activity while using Allo can result in the immediate loss of access to your account. Additionally, when law enforcement is involved, we will cooperate with their investigation in accordance with our Law Enforcement Guidelines.
Allo prohibits riders and drivers from carrying firearms in a vehicle while using our app.  If you violate Allo’s firearms prohibition policy, you may lose access to Allo.
Allo has a zero tolerance policy towards discrimination of any kind. This means you will lose access to your account if you are found to have discriminated against drivers or other riders based on their race, color, religion, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, sex, marital status, gender identity, age or any other characteristic protected under applicable law.
Fraud or Illegitimate Behavior
Fraudulent or illegitimate behavior undermines the trust on which Allo is built. We may deactivate any account(s) associated with this type of activity, including: abusing promotions; collusion between rider and driver; disputing fares for fraudulent or illegitimate reasons; or duplicate accounts.
WHY DRIVERS CAN LOSE ACCESS TO ALLO
If you are a driver, and your account is temporarily blocked or deactivated, it limits your ability to earn income. That’s why we believe it is important to have clear policies that explain the circumstances in which you may be denied access to Allo; how (if at all) you can use the app again; and if you can appeal these decisions. 
There will always be unforeseen events that may ultimately lead to you losing access to your driver account — and we’ll update this policy regularly — but the following are sufficient cause for Allo to take action: quality; safety; fraud; and discrimination.
Riders who use Allo expect their drivers to drive safely, and also to be courteous and professional. The higher the quality of the service, the more riders want to take trips, which in turn means more opportunities for drivers to earn money. Poor service has the opposite effect over time. There are several ways we measure driver quality, with the most important being Star Ratings and Cancellation Rate.
After every trip, drivers and riders are able to rate each other on a scale of one to five stars, as well as give feedback on how the trip went. This two-way system holds everyone accountable for their behavior. Accountability helps create a respectful, safe environment for both drivers and riders. Drivers can see their current rating in the Ratings tab of the Allo Partner app.
How is my rating as a driver calculated? Your rating is based on an average of the number of post-trip stars riders gave you (from 1 to 5 stars), up to your last 500 rated trips or the total number of rated trips you’ve taken, if less than 500.
The easiest way to keep your average rating high is to provide good service on every trip. Drivers using Allo typically provide excellent service, so most trips run smoothly. But we know that sometimes a trip doesn’t go well—that’s why we only look at your average rating over your most recent 500 trips (or your total rated trip count, if under 500). This gives you the chance to improve over time.
What leads to you losing access to your account? There is a minimum average rating in each city. This is because there are cultural differences in the way people in different cities rate each other. We will alert you over time if your rating is approaching this limit, and you’ll also get information about quality improvement courses that may help you improve. However, if your average rating still falls below the minimum after multiple notifications, you will lose access to your account. We may allow you to regain access to your account if you can provide proof that you completed one of these quality improvement courses.
A driver cancellation is when you accept a trip request and then cancel the trip. Cancellations create a poor rider experience and negatively affect other drivers. We understand that there may be times when something comes up and you have to cancel an accepted trip. But minimizing cancellations is critical for the reliability of the system.
How is my cancellation rate calculated? Your cancellation rate is based on the number of trips canceled out of the total number of trips you accept. (For example, if you’ve accepted 100 trips and 4 of them are canceled, your cancellation rate would be 4%.) High-quality drivers typically have a cancellation rate lower than 5%.
What leads to you losing access to your account? Each city has a maximum cancellation rate, based on the average cancellation rate of drivers in that area. We will alert you multiple times if your cancellation rate is much higher or if you are consistently canceling more often than other drivers in your city, after which you may be logged out of the app. If your cancellation rate continues to exceed the maximum limit, you may lose access to your account.
High acceptance rates are a critical part of reliable, high-quality service, but not accepting trip requests does not lead to permanent loss of your account.
Consistently accepting trip requests helps maximize earnings for drivers and keeps the system running smoothly. We know that sometimes things come up that prevent you from accepting every trip request, or you may want to take a break. But not accepting trip requests causes delays and degrades the reliability of the system. If you don’t want to accept trips, just log off.
If you consistently decline trip requests, we will assume you do not want to accept more trips and you may be logged out of the app.
Allo uses technology to keep drivers and riders safe, for instance by GPS-tracking every ride and allowing riders to share their journeys in real time with families or friends. This is all backed up by a robust system of pre-screenings of drivers. We also have a dedicated incident response team on call 24/7 to investigate safety incidents.
Actions that threaten the safety of drivers and riders will be investigated and, if confirmed, lead to permanent deactivation of your account. For example:
· Physical contact with riders. As our community guidelines make clear, you shouldn’t touch or flirt with other people in the car. As a reminder, Allo has a no sex rule. That’s no sexual conduct with riders, no matter what. And you should never hit or otherwise hurt a rider.
· Use of inappropriate and abusive language or gestures. For example, asking overly personal questions, using verbal threats, and making comments or gestures that are aggressive, sexual, discriminatory, or disrespectful.
· Unwanted contact with riders after a trip is over. For example, texting, calling, or visiting someone in person after a ride has been completed.
· Breaking the local law while using Allo. For example, texting while driving; speeding or otherwise breaking local traffic laws; and using Allo to commit a crime, including drug and human trafficking or the sexual exploitation of children.
· Safe Driving. Allo expects drivers using the app to drive safely at all times.
What leads to you losing access to your account? If we are made aware of this type of problematic behavior, we may contact you so we can investigate them. Depending on the nature of the concern, we may put a hold on your account during our investigation. If the issues raised are serious or a repeat offense, or you refuse to cooperate, you may lose access to Allo. Any behavior involving violence, sexual misconduct, harassment, discrimination, or illegal activity while using Allo can result in the immediate loss of your account. Allo will also deactivate the account of any driver who receives several or serious complaints of poor, unsafe, or distracted driving while using the Allo app. Additionally, when law enforcement is involved, we will cooperate with their investigation in accordance with our Law Enforcement Guidelines.
Zero Tolerance for Drugs and Alcohol
Allo does not tolerate the use of drugs or alcohol by partners while driving.
What leads to you losing access to your account? The account of any driver found to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol while using the Alloapp will be permanently deactivated. Allo may also deactivate the account of any driver who receives several unconfirmed complaints of drug or alcohol use.
Compliance with the Law
We expect drivers using the Alloapp to act in compliance with all relevant state, federal and local laws and the rules of the road at all times. This includes meeting the regulatory requirements for rideshare or for-hire drivers in your area.
What leads to you losing access to your account? Allo may permanently deactivate your account for activities such as: engaging in serious illegal activity while using the Alloapp; not maintaining valid vehicle registration or driver’s license; and receiving serious traffic citations, or several traffic citations that indicate unsafe driving, while using the Alloapp.
Allo prohibits riders and drivers from carrying firearms in a vehicle while using our app.  If you violate Allo’s firearms prohibition policy, you may lose access to Allo.
All drivers wanting to use the Alloapp are required to undergo a screening process, like motor vehicle record and background checks, to ensure safety and compliance with our criteria. 
What leads to you losing access to your account? We will permanently deactivate a driver’s account if a routine motor vehicle record or background check uncovers a violation of Allo’s safety standards or of other criteria required by local regulators.
To maintain the transparency and safety of each trip for all users, activities conducted outside of Allo’s system — like anonymous pickups — are prohibited.
What leads to you losing access to your account? We will take action against a driver for activities such as: accepting illegal street hails while using the Alloapp; harming the business or brand, like unauthorized use of Allo’s trademark or intellectual property, or otherwise violating the drivers’ agreement with Allo; and soliciting payment of fares outside the Allo system.
Fraudulent activity undermines the trust on which Allo is built. That’s why we are constantly on the lookout for fraud by riders and drivers who are gaming our systems.
What leads to you losing access to your account? We will deactivate any account or accounts associated with fraudulent activity, which may include: deliberately increasing the time or distance of a trip; accepting trips without the intention to complete, including provoking riders to cancel; creating dummy rider or driver accounts for fraudulent purposes; claiming fraudulent fees or charges, like false cleaning fees; and intentionally accepting or completing fraudulent or falsified trips.
Accurate Personal Information
The Alloapp is designed to give riders identifying information about drivers and their vehicles, like their name, profile picture, vehicle model and license plate number, before the trip begins. Inaccurate or outdated information creates confusion among riders and can diminish their experience with Allo.
What leads to you losing access to your account? We will deactivate your account for activities such as: providing Allo with inaccurate information; allowing someone else to use your account; and taking a trip using an unapproved vehicle.
In addition, we will take action to prevent any driver whose required documentation becomes invalid — like a driver’s license that expires — from going online until the driver provides Allo with updated information.
Allo’s mission is to connect riders to reliable transportation, everywhere for everyone. We have a zero tolerance policy towards discrimination of any kind at Allo.
What leads to you losing access to your account? It is unacceptable to refuse to provide services based on characteristics like a person’s race, color, religion, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, sex, marital status, gender identity, age or any other characteristic protected under relevant federal, state, or local law. Actions like these may result in permanent deactivation of your account.
In addition, it is not acceptable to discriminate on the basis of a rider’s destination.
