CAREFULLY READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS BEFORE PROCEEDING. ACCESSING THIS WEBSITE BY CLICKING THE "I ACCEPT THESE TERMS" BUTTON, BELOW, IS THE EQUIVALENT OF YOUR SIGNATURE AND INDICATES YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS AND THAT YOU INTEND TO BE LEGALLY BOUND BY THEM.

ENTIRE AGREEMENT
This is the entire agreement between you (“You”) and Salisbury University (“University”) with respect to the University’s Rideshare Program (“Gullride”). The effective date of this Agreement is when You accept this Agreement in accordance with the procedure set out in these terms and conditions.

DESCRIPTION OF GULLRIDE; OBJECTIVE OF GULLRIDE
Gullride is an online system that provides participants a method by which those interested in carpooling or otherwise ride sharing may voluntarily and at their own risk contact one another by using an online bulletin board. Use of the system is voluntary and entirely at the discretion of its participants.

Gullride’s goal is to encourage less vehicle traffic on the roads of Delmarva and on the University’s campus, in the interest of reduced commuting costs, improved community health, and clean air. However, University is not providing, and Gullride does not constitute, a public transportation service.

CONDITIONS OF USE
You acknowledge that Gullride is a carpool matching service designed to assist commuters and other travelers to find appropriate persons with whom to share rides to and/or from Salisbury University, as applicable. You acknowledge that Gullride is designed to match riders with drivers for one-time, occasional and daily trips for the purpose of achieving the objectives of Gullride and that University as applicable, reserves the right to terminate Your participation in Gullride and remove You from the system at any time if it is determined that You are not using Gullride for such a purpose. Further, University reserves the right to alter, suspend or terminate Gullride at any time without prior notice to You.

Gullride is an optional service that You use at Your own risk, just as You would if You obtained a ride with a friend or relative. Neither the State of Maryland, University System of Maryland, University nor any of their respective officers, Regents, employees, agents, volunteers, representatives or contractors, assume any liability for any injury or harm that may result from Your use of the service, and as a condition of using Gullride, You are specifically required to waive any claim You might have against any of them for damages or other remedy arising from any such injury or harm. PLEASE READ THE DETAILED ASSUMPTION OF RISK, WAIVER, RELEASE, COVENANT NOT TO SUE AND INDEMNIFICATION AGREEMENT WHICH FORMS PART OF THIS AGREEMENT.

DISCLAIMER
You acknowledge that University does not (a) conduct any criminal, motor vehicle record, insurance or other background checks on Gullride participants, (b) inspect or otherwise investigate the condition or safety of vehicles used by Gullride participants, (c) assume any responsibility for determining the suitability of Gullride for You or Your ability to participate in Gullride, or (d) assume any obligation to take any steps to ensure Your safety during Your use of Gullride. Without limiting the foregoing, You specifically acknowledge that it is Your responsibility to contact, interview and select other Gullride participants, and to make Your own independent judgment as to whether to drive and/or ride with them. By participating in Gullride you are agreeing that you are entirely responsible for your own safety.

APPLICABLE LAWS; INSURANCE
You acknowledge that it is Your responsibility to become familiar with the legalities of participating in a carpool, and to contact Your vehicle insurer and verify that You have sufficient insurance coverage to protect Yourself and Your carpool passengers. University does not provide any insurance coverage for the benefit of Gullride participants. You are responsible for determining whether participants have vehicle insurance coverage and whether such insurance covers You if you ride with other Gullride participants.

FREE OF CHARGE
University is providing the Gullride service free of charge. Any agreement made between You and fellow participants regarding cost sharing does not involve University, and University assumes no responsibility for such arrangements.

PERSONAL INFORMATION You consent to University, as applicable, collection, use and disclosure of Your email address and full name through the Gullride program. Your full name and email address will not be disclosed to the general participant population, but may be disclosed to other actual or prospective participants for matching purposes. YOU MAY ACCESS, CORRECT AND DELETE YOUR OWN PERSONAL INFORMATION STORED ON THE GULLRIDE WEBSITE BY USING THE WEBSITE OR BY EMAILING THE ADMINISTRATOR THROUGH THE "CONTACT US" PAGE.
