Terms and Conditions - Pods Reservation
These terms and conditions (the “Terms and Conditions”) govern the Customer’s reservation of Services giving the Customer Order Priority (the “Reservation”). These Terms and Conditions only govern the Reservation and do not constitute a right or obligation by the Customer to place an Order or obligation by Einride to accept and confirm an Order. Any subsequent purchase of Services will be governed by separate agreement entered into in connection with Einride’s acceptance and confirmation of an Order. Einride may review and amend the Reservation arrangement as well as these Terms and Conditions, at any time.
RESERVATION & RESERVATION FEE
When placing a Reservation via Einride website (https://www.einride.tech), the Customer shall pay a Reservation Fee of USD 10,000 per each Pod subject to Reservation. The Reservation Fee is exclusive of VAT and other similar taxes and charges. The first USD 1,500 of each Reservation Fee will be collected by Einride via credit card payment online and the remaining part of the Reservation Fee will be invoiced by Einride (payable within 30 days of the date of invoice). A Reservation is not complete until the Reservation Fee is paid in full.
The Reservation Fee is refundable in case the Customer chooses to cancel its Reservation in accordance with these Terms and Conditions. The Reservation Fee only covers the benefit of Order Priority under the Reservation. When the Services are made available for order you will be requested to place an Order stating the confirmed price and other terms for the purchase Services. The Reservation Fee will not be applied towards the payment of any subsequent Services purchased by the Customer. The Customer has no right to collect interest on the Reservation Fee.
CANCELLATION OF A RESERVATION
The Customer may at any time prior to having placed an Order cancel its Reservation for any reason at their convenience. The Customer may exercise the right to cancel its Reservation by contacting Einride’s customer support via email (email@example.com). Einride is also entitled to cancel the Reservation for any reason and at any time. If so, Einride will contact the Customer via the email address provided when placing the Reservation. If the Reservation is cancelled in accordance with these Terms and Conditions, the Reservation Fee will be refunded to the Customer. Once the cancellation is effective, the Customer will no longer have Order Priority.
The payment process is handled by Stripe, which is a partner to Einride. When paying the Reservation Fee, the Customer needs to share information (including personal data) with Stripe. The payment process and the processing of information (including personal data) in relation thereto are governed by Stripe’s terms and conditions https://stripe.com/payment-terms/legal as well as the terms and conditions of the relevant third party with who Stripe collaborates in the payment process.
