Welcome to Fleetworks, an online fleet management system designed for fleet operators to assist with the management of accidents claims, PCN’s, chargebacks and associated debt issues.

Please take the time to read these terms of use (“Customer Terms Of Use”) before accessing or using our services (“Service”) available at https://dash.fleetworks.co/ (“Website”).

The Website is operated by The Fleetworks Software Company Limited, a private limited company registered in England with number 12235444 whose registered office is at The Old Casino, 28 Fourth Avenue, Hove, East Sussex, BN3 2PJ, UK (“we” or “us” or “our”). These Customer Terms Of Use apply to all Customers who access and/or use the Service. If you do not agree to these Terms and Conditions you should contact the Supplier and discontinue any use of the Services.

We will notify the nominated Account Holder User by email. In these Customer Terms, “you” refers to the entity you represent (“Customer”).

If you do not agree with these Customer Terms, Data Processing Agreement or Privacy Policy, you should not use the Service.

You connect to the Service using an Internet. You are responsible for obtaining access to the Internet and any equipment necessary to do this.

Signup
During the onboarding process you will assign an administrator (“Administrator” or “Account Holder”) and usually at least one other user (“User”) who would have day-to-day responsibility for the Fleetworks account. The Service is only for use by a single legal entity such as a company or a partnership. During the account set up process you must provide various details that are requested to complete the account profile. Failure to do so will result in delayed access or the denial of access to the site.

You may invite additional users to access your account by adding them as a User. By doing so you confirm that all Users are employees of the Customer or associated companies or agents such as an Insurance Broker. Users can be added and will be billed within the terms defined by the Tariff on the http://www.fleetworks.co.

Term
Use of your account shall commence after signup and when we have verified your account details. Access shall continue until terminated by either party in accordance with the provisions of these Customer Terms Of Use.

Relationship Between Customer, Users and Administrator
You are responsible for ensuring that all contact, email and name details used in connection with the Service are accurate and current during the term of this agreement. The Administrators control the day to day administration of the Customer account. The Administrators can cancel access to the Service and manage permissions. These actions may result in changes to the access, use, disclosure, modification or deletion of certain or all Customer Data.

Invited Users may access the Service and submit content or information (“Customer Data”) subject to the provisions of these Customer Terms Of Use. You shall ensure that all Users comply with these Customer Terms Of Use and you shall be liable for any breaches of the Customer Terms Of Use caused by any acts or omissions of Users as if the Customer had carried out such acts or omissions itself.

Users are not permitted to share their username and password with any other person nor with multiple users on a network. You are responsible for all activities that occur in your account. You will immediately notify us if you become aware of any unauthorised use of your account, passwords or any breach of security. Where a User misuses your Account you are responsible for taking any remedial action to protect your account. The Customer may request our help in providing audit activity to help ascertain any breaches. We shall act with reasonable care in providing audit assistance but shall have no liability for any loss or damage arising as a result of providing such audit assistance. We will only change the Administrator if requested to do so by the current Administrator or someone shown to be acting on behalf of the Customer if the Administrator is unable to make the change themselves. You agree to advise us immediately if any User or Administrator ceases to be employed by you.

Customer Data
You own all content and data you add to your account and you retain sole ownership of all rights, title and interest in, and to, your Customer Data. You have the sole responsibility for the legality, reliability, integrity, accuracy and quality of your Customer Data. You grant us the perpetual right to use Customer Data in an anonymized format. We have no responsibility for the way in which you choose to use your account to store or process your Customer Data. We will occasionally offer access to a third party integration. We will notify you about additional costs for using these connections by email to the Administrator. If we become aware of excessive requests to your account via the API we reserve the right to suspend access to the API. We shall attempt to email you prior to suspension. If Customer Data is being passed from, or to, the Service through an API, we will not be responsible for any use, disclosure, modification or deletion of Customer Data that is transmitted, or accessed by, third party products. We shall treat Personal Data as Confidential Information and shall only Process Personal Data on behalf of and in accordance with Customer’s documented instructions for the following purposes: (a) Processing in accordance with the Agreement ; (b) Processing initiated by Users in their use of the Services; and (c) Processing to comply with other documented reasonable instructions provided by Customer (e.g. via email) where such instructions are consistent with the terms of the Agreement.

Data Subject Request
Effective 25 May 2018, we shall, to the extent legally permitted, promptly notify the Customer if we receive a request from a Data Subject to exercise the Data Subject's right of access, right to rectification, restriction of Processing, erasure (“right to be forgotten”), data portability, object to the Processing or its right not to be subject to an automated individual decision making (“Data Subject Request”). Considering the nature of the Processing, we shall assist you by appropriate technical and organizational measures, insofar as this is possible, for the fulfilment of Customer’s obligation to respond to a Data Subject Request under Data Protection Laws and Regulations.
In addition, to the extent the Customer, in its use of the Services, does not have the ability to address a Data Subject Request, we shall upon your request provide commercially reasonable efforts to assist Customer in responding to such Data Subject Request, to the extent that we are legally permitted to do so and the response to such Data Subject Request is required under Data Protection Laws and Regulations.

Fees
All service prices are displayed on https://www.fleetworks.co and are subject to change with notice in advance by us. If an invoice is unpaid after 28 days then access to the Service will be withdrawn until the invoice is paid. In addition, any timed events scheduled by the Service will be stopped. If you fail to pay, access to the Service may be permanently withdrawn and you may suffer losses as a result. We do not accept any liability whatsoever for such losses. A user license shall incur a charge in any given month if it has been available for use at any point in the prior month, whether it has been utilised during the prior month. The charge in respect of a new user added part-way through a month shall only become billable in the following month. In general, and unless otherwise agreed in writing, access fees are due in advance and ancillary services will be billed monthly, in arrears. Any new features of the Service will be notified to the Account Holder by email. Use of those features after that email has been sent is deemed acceptance of any fee’s. We will occasionally arrange for a Customer account to be setup for a 28 day trial. If you sign up for a trial account and do not proceed to a fee paying account your account will be cancelled. All data will be deleted 14 days after your trial stops. There will be no refund or credit for partial weeks of Service. Fees are chargeable and shall be payable until an account is terminated or cancelled, even if you never use the Service. Trial accounts are not required to provide payment except for ancillary services.

If the Customer’s place of business is within the UK we will add UK VAT to our fees at the then current rate. If your place of business is in the EU (excluding the UK) and we are not obliged to charge you VAT (due to current applicable law), we will only exclude VAT from invoices if you provide us with a valid VAT registration number or other proof that you are using the Service for business purposes. Part of the Service includes the use of an online payment portal that allows the Customer to receive payments from their clients. Payments received will be subject to fee’s as described in the Tariff. If the Customer fails to make payment for the Service, we reserve the right of set off using any received funds against any outstanding invoices.

Suspension & Locking Access

We reserve the right to suspend access to your account if you fail to provide payment for the full amount of any outstanding fees and charges due or you fail to pay us any sums owed for the Service for any reason. We will provide the Administrator with prior notice by email of our intention to suspend your Customer account. If, within 28 days of suspending your Customer account, the amount of any outstanding fees and charges is not paid to us in full, your Customer account will be cancelled.

Termination of these Customer Terms Of Use for any reason shall not affect the accrued rights of the parties arising under these Customer Terms Of Use and all rights which by their nature should survive the expiry or termination of these Customer Terms Of Use shall remain in full force and effect. Except for paying accounts, we reserve the right to cancel and delete your account if you have not accessed the Service for more than 3 consecutive months. We will provide prior notice by email to the Administrator before we do so. Each account will be considered as an independent and separate account for the purpose of calculating the inactive period. Any one user accessing the account will keep the account active. When an account is terminated or cancelled, the account and any content left behind in the account will be made inaccessible. For a period of 14 days after any account has been cancelled you may request that we restore your account. After this period, your account and all Customer Data contained within it will be permanently deleted and the agreement between us as set out in these Customer Terms Of Use will automatically terminate.
