(a) “Active Account” means an account of an Approved User that has: (i) been installed or accessed through the Uber App on a compatible mobile device, (ii) registered for and maintained during the Term an active personal user account for the Uber Service, which registration requires the entry of certain personally identifiable information and a personal credit card number, and (iii) confirmed the mobile number provided during the Uber App registration process.

Upon redemption of an Uber Voucher by an Approved User, Uber shall charge Company the Utilization Amount of each such Uber Voucher, unless Company participates in Monthly Billing, in which case the Utilization Amount shall be paid for pursuant to Section 5 of the General Terms. If a fare exceeds the Uber Voucher value for an individual transaction, the balance shall be charged to such Approved User’s payment method on file in their Active Account.
(b) Pursuant to Section 5 of the General Terms, Uber may, in its sole discretion, elect to qualify Company to participate in Monthly Billing.
(c) Account Suspension. Uber reserves the right to immediately suspend Company’s Corporate Account and suspend any or all access to Uber Vouchers by Approved Users in the event of any unpaid Utilization Amount by Company due on any past Monthly Statements. Uber may also deactivate or suspend use of Uber Vouchers at any time during the Term at its sole discretion. Uber further reserves the right to pursue any and all remedies available to it under applicable law, including, but not limited to, reporting Company to applicable credit reporting agencies, in the event of any unpaid Utilization Amount hereunder. Reestablishing a deactivated or suspended Corporate Account after full payment of late Utilization Amount shall be at Uber’s sole discretion. All late payments shall accrue simple interest on the sum due from the date such payment was originally due until the date of actual payment, at the lower of 3% per month or the maximum allowed by applicable law.
Access to Uber Dashboard. (a) Account Administration and Company Dashboard. Company shall be responsible for all activity that occurs under all Programs, and Uber Vouchers created through the Dashboard.
Approved User Updates. It is Company’s sole responsibility to keep and maintain an accurate list of current Approved Users to receive and utilise Uber Vouchers.
(a) Creating Uber Programs and Uber Vouchers; Limitations. (i) Company may create Programs within the Dashboard, which will generate Uber Vouchers for Company to distribute to Approved Users. Such programs may only be run in the countries where Uber makes Uber Vouchers available to Company. Company acknowledges and agrees that it is responsible for all marketing, promotion, and advertising of the voucher programs, including but not limited to ensuring that such marketing, promotion, and advertising is in compliance with all applicable laws, rules, regulations and ordinances and that it does not harm the goodwill or reputation of Uber.
(ii) Company can choose to create a program with either: (a) one single Uber Voucher to distribute to all Approved Users (a “Single Code”); or (b) individualized Uber Vouchers that Company can distribute to each Approved User, which are limited to one code per person, and can only be used by the first person who redeems the code (each an “Individualized Code”). Company acknowledges and agrees that Single Codes and Individualized Codes may not be used as intended if an Approved User shares the code with a non-Approved User, that Uber has no way to prevent such sharing or non-intended use, and that all of Company’s obligations under this Product Addendum apply no matter who redeems a code under this
1) Single Codes. For any Program that utilises a Single Code, Company may limit the number of times such code can be used; provided, however, Company must clearly and conspicuously disclose to each Approved User: (a) that use of the code is not guaranteed; and (b) the materials terms and conditions of each Single Code. Company acknowledges and agrees that: (1) a Single Code may be used by consumers (including non-Approved Users) Company did not intend to target, but Company will be financially responsible for the number of times the Single Code is used to access Uber Services; and (2) for any individual that tries to access a Single Code after the usage limitations have been met, Uber will direct such individual to contact Company about such matter. Notwithstanding, Company acknowledges and agrees that in no event will Uber be liable to: (i) Approved Users who were targeted to receive such Uber Voucher but were not able to use the Single Code; or (ii) Company for Uber’s non-fulfillment of the Uber Voucher as a result of usage limitations set by Company.
2) Individualized Codes. For any Program that utilises Individualized Codes, it is Company’s responsibility to correctly deliver such codes to Approved Users and to clearly and conspicuously disclose the materials terms and conditions of each Individualized Code to each Approved User. Company acknowledges and agrees that: for any individual that tries to access an Individualized Code after such code has expired, Uber will direct such individual to contact Company about such expired Individualized Code. Notwithstanding, Company acknowledges and agrees that in no event will Uber be liable to: (i) Approved Users who were targeted to receive such Uber Voucher but were not able to use the Individualized Code ; or (ii) Company for Uber’s non-fulfillment of the Uber Voucher as a result of usage limitations set by Company.
(b) **Uber Voucher Limitations**. Company shall ensure the maximum aggregate Redemption Value of Uber Vouchers that Company has outstanding at any given time during the Term shall not exceed the credit amount approved by Uber for Company’s Monthly Billing, unless Uber agrees in writing to allow Company to distribute a different amount of Uber Vouchers. Each Uber Voucher created by Company shall: (1) expire no later than twelve months following the date on which the Company created the Uber Voucher; (2) have a minimum Redemption Value for each country for which an Uber Voucher was ordered as specified in the Dashboard; (3) be valid for redemption in areas where Uber Vouchers are available until such Uber Voucher expires; and (4) be feasibly usable for the Approved User receiving such Uber Voucher (i.e. Approved User cannot be located in New York, New York and receive a code that is only valid in San Francisco, California). (c) **Restrictions of Use.** Company cannot use Uber Vouchers with any third-party promotion, agreement, relationship, marketing event, partnership, or any other use case without Uber’s prior written consent. Company agrees it will not apply, or allow to be applied, the Uber Voucher to a User account without first disclosing all of the disclaimer set forth in Section 6(e)(iv) below. (d) **Modification or Cancellation of Uber Vouchers.** After a Program is created, Company may only: (1) update a Program to make the restrictions and/or value more permissive if the Voucher code has not yet been distributed to Approved Users, or (2) cancel a Program in its entirety, in which case Company shall immediately notify all Approved Users they distributed a Voucher code to that such Program is cancelled and that Company, and not Uber, made the decision to do so. Such notification shall be subject to Uber’s prior written approval. Company acknowledges and agrees that if Company modifies or cancels a Program: (1) Company remains financially responsible to Approved Users who received an Uber Voucher from Company, whether or not the Approved User used such Uber Voucher before Company modified or cancelled the Program; and (2) that if an individual is unable to use a Voucher code for a modified or cancelled Program, Uber will direct such individual to contact Company about any modification or cancellation issues. Notwithstanding, Company acknowledges and agrees that in no event will Uber be liable to: (i) Approved Users who received such Uber Voucher, but were not able to use the Uber Voucher following Company’s modifications to or cancellation of the Program by Company; or (ii) Company for Uber’s non-fulfillment of the Uber Voucher as a result of a modifications to or cancellation of the Program by Company. (e) **Marketing and Messaging Related to Uber Vouchers.** (i) **Marketing Guidelines.** At all times during the Term Company shall follow the marketing guidelines that the parties have agreed to in Exhibit 1 of this Product Addendum (the “**Marketing Guidelines**”), which Uber may update from time to time in its discretion. (ii) **Delivery of Uber Vouchers to Approved Users.** Company will receive Uber Vouchers in the form of code links, that Company may deliver to Approved Users via email or, if Company has the proper consents under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”) or any other applicable data privacy and/or consumer regulation or guidelines, short message service (“**SMS**”) message. In the event that Company delivers such Uber Vouchers via email, Company shall ensure that it is the sole sender of the email as defined by the CAN-SPAM Act and that Uber does not appear as the sender of such email. In the event that Company delivers such Uber Vouchers via SMS, Company shall ensure that it has affirmative written consent from all Approved Users to send them such messages and will make clear in the message that it is being sent by Company (as opposed to Uber). Company shall not deliver or attempt to deliver any Uber Vouchers through a public facing or accessible website/page or social media. 1) Pre-Approved Email Templates.

Follow the Uber Design Guidelines. - https://developer.uber.com/docs/riders/guides/design-guidelines
Be clear about what the User is going to receive.
a. Do not use the word “free” to characterize the benefit unless the entire cost of the ride is covered by the Uber Voucher
b. If there are any time or distance limitations make sure you disclose those up front in the marketing of the Uber Voucher (so that the User can see these limitations without being required to click through to a different page or section)
c. If the Uber Voucher only covers a portion of the ride, make sure you are clear on the face of the marketing communication what that portion is and that the User will have to pay for any remaining cost.
