READ THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CAREFULLY. THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS (“AGREEMENT”) CONSTITUTE A LEGAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND CROWDSHIPPING CORPORATION, A GEORGIA CORPORATION (“CROWDSHIPPING,” “WE,” “US,” OR “OUR”).
CrowdShipping is a crowd shipping delivery software application leveraging a network of existing community members, local drivers, users (senders), air travelers, community members with availability to deliver packages, vehicle owners, and truck owners, to deliver packages to customers’ doors in the fastest, most cost-saving approach possible. The democratization of logistics by crowd delivery is now CrowdShipping. Our goal is to cause local package delivery to occur in less than an hourly basis within a 50-mile radius. This efficient Route system allows the customer to track, in real-time, his or her trip requests by live tracking on GPS and text messaging alerts on their smartphones. This innovation was inspired by the huge potential that still exists largely in the share economy. To penetrate the gigantic e-commerce market, young digital-first, digital-heavy customer base, we created a customer first, “below the hour delivery”, a system called CrowdShipping. To become part of the CrowdShipping as a User, Shipper, Delivery Provider, or Driver who performs Delivery Services in the “Community”, you expressly agree to be bound by the terms, future amendments, changes, updates, or additions to this Terms and Condition Agreement. These future changes or updates will be available on the App and on our web at: CrowdShipping These changes will be emailed to all members within the community as any updates to our existing Terms and Conditions are made to all registered email addresses on file. Once you download our App and are approved after the application process to become a Driver (Provider) or a User in the community, you agree to make it your responsibility to abide by CrowdShipping Terms and Conditions in its entirety.
THIS PROVISION WILL ALLOW US TO EMPLOY THE USE OF ARBITRATION INDIVIDUALLY, NOT BY GROUP ACTION, TO RESOLVE DISPUTES OR CONFLICTS, NOT BY CLASS ACTIONS. LITIGATION OR JOINT LEGAL ACTION BY A GROUP OF PEOPLE WILL LIMIT THE REMEDIES AVAILABLE TO YOU IN THE EVENT OF A DISPUTE, CONFLICT, OR DISAGREEMENT. FURTHERMORE, UNDERSTAND THAT THE ARBITRATION AGREEMENT COULD AFFECT YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN PENDING PROPOSED CLASS ACTION LITIGATION.
Acceptance of this Agreement
User and Driver (Local Delivery) or User (Sender) and Provider (International Delivery). This occurs when a User posts or requests At CrowdShipping we provide the most up-to-date technology tools, real-time, no lag, optimal instant delivery services, schedule option delivery services, ‘Below the Hour Delivery’, concrete security, secure payment processing system, geo-location tools, route optimization, move-on-demand scheduling tools, intelligent route tracking and quick access, allowing customers and community members to connect with Drivers (Local Delivery Services – Land) or Shippers (Sender) to Provider (International Delivery Services, Land, Air, and Sea). CrowdShipping has two types of relationships: Shipper (Sender) to Driver (Local Delivery) and Shipper (Sender) to Provider (International Delivery). “Load”, “package”, “parcel”, “cargo”, or “freight” on the CrowdShipping Dashboard for pickup and be delivered by a Driver or Provider. Any Driver (Provider) who successfully connects with the Sender gets that “Trip”. The User, Shipper, or Sender can request a pickup by simply posting a“Pickup Request” from the user app on the web, iOS, or Android App. Once posted these Trips can be seen by designated drivers or providers on the Dashboard for available Trips. Once an item becomes available on the CrowdShipping Dashboard, all providers and drivers begin to send offers in order to be the first to successfully get the Trip. You will see in the Q & A section the video on How-To Post A Trip and How To Pick Up as a Driver and How To Post a Trip as a Provider or How to Bid for Available Trips on the Dashboard. The Provider who becomes successful with their bid gets the Trip and proceeds to pick up the item from the Sender to complete the delivery. At any time, a Community member or User could become a Delivery Provider.
But must register and be approved to do so. The Delivery Provider is simply a person who is traveling in the same direction as the sender’s parcel drop-off location, and who volunteers to deliver a package for the sender (trip requester) for a fee. Another way a Community member may become a Delivery Provider is if a Community member has the availability to accept a package, and makes that availability known to other Community members by posting it on the CrowdShipping Dashboard, the owner of that container by ocean vessel, by automobile or by flight, becomes a Delivery Provider. CrowdShipping App makes it possible to connect everyone and anyone with Drivers and Delivery Providers seeking to perform the Delivery Services. The job of pickup and delivery is known as the “Trip”. Drivers, Delivery Providers, and Shippers (Senders) are referred to as “Community Members”. Drivers (Providers) who participate in the CrowdShipping platform are self-employed independent contractors who voluntarily download the CrowdShipping App in order to carry out Delivery Services to perform delivery services for users. Drivers and Providers who sign up to connect with Users on the CrowdShipping App can be drivers (Providers) on other platforms if they choose to do so. By accessing, downloading, creating an account, and logging into the CrowdShipping App or web, you acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by this Terms and Condition Agreement. If you do not accept this Terms and Condition Agreement, you may not access, browse or use the CrowdShipping App and web application.

To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent at 5520 Lilburn Stone Mountain Road, Stone Mountain, GA, 30087. You may call JAMS at 800-352-5267. The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS under its rules and pursuant to the terms of this Agreement.

JAMS’ rules are also available at www.jamsadr.com. Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitration fees will be governed by JAMS rules. If the arbitrator finds that you cannot afford to pay JAMS’ filing, administrative, hearing or other fees and cannot obtain a waiver of fees from JAMS, the CrowdShipping will pay them for you. In addition, the Company will reimburse all such JAMS’ filing, administrative, hearing, and/or other fees for claims with an amount in controversy totaling less than $10,000. If JAMS is not available to arbitrate, the parties will select an alternative arbitral forum. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, video conference, based on written submissions, or in person in the country where you live or at a mutually agreed on location.

Social Media Guidelines
CrowdShipping maintains certain social media pages for the benefit of the CrowdShipping community. By posting, commenting, or otherwise interacting with these pages, you agree to abide by our Social Media Community Guidelines:
Delivery of Alcohol and Tobacco
A Driver (Provider) must be 21 years of age to undertake any Route containing tobacco and alcoholic products. A Driver (Provider) on Route for the delivery of tobacco and alcoholic beverages must request a valid, government-issued identification to confirm that the receiver is 21 years of age at the minimum. Examples of valid, government-issued IDs are Driver (Provider)’s licenses, Passports, U.S. military IDs, and Permanent Resident Cards. When delivering an item involving all alcoholic beverages, a Driver (Provider) must be vigilant to establish that the receiver is not conspicuously drunk or intoxicated before delivering the Items. Most States in the United States have laws prohibiting the delivery of alcoholic beverages to anyone who is visibly intoxicated. Driver (Provider), on the CrowdShipping platform, is strongly advised to pay extra attention to this in order not to become personally liable for breaking the Law.
Signs of Intoxication commonly referred to as drunkenness
Serving alcohol to a visibly intoxicated person is against the law. If you can tell on sight that a person has been drinking or using other drugs, the person is visibly intoxicated. If a person shows a combination of several signs that could be a strong indication that the person is intoxicated. Remember that intoxication can result from the use of drugs other than alcohol.
