Welcome and thank you for your interest in Maven Gig!
Maven Drive LLC ("Maven", "we", or "us"), provides a car sharing service called Maven Gig that allows eligible and approved Maven users (referred to throughout this Agreement as "Renter" or "you") to reserve and rent Maven vehicles ("Vehicles") for your lawful and legitimate commercial use of the Vehicles, such as participation in rideshare or delivery programs ("Commercial Platforms").

2.9. You have not been convicted in the last 5 years of any of the following violations:
2.10.

4.1. To provide the Maven Gig Program to you, we will collect, use, and share certain information about you (that you have provided to us), your use of the Vehicle, and the OnStar services equipped in the Vehicle. You consent to our collection, use, and sharing of this information as described within the Privacy Statement, the OnStar Terms and Conditions and Privacy Statement, and as summarized below. The OnStar Privacy Statement is posted at https://www.onstar.com/us/en/footer-links/privacy-policy.html.
4.2. We will collect your name, address, telephone number, email address, driver's license number, date of birth, the driver's license expiration date and state of issuance and, if you have a Pennsylvania driver's license, the last four digits of your social security number. This information will be provided to our trusted service provider to perform a background check of your driving history and/or driving record, so we can confirm your eligibility to participate in the Maven Gig Program. We may also use this information to conduct screening to ensure you are not included on any U.S. or other government lists of restricted parties.
4.3. We will collect your billing information, including your name, credit card number, credit card type, expiration date, and CVV number to provide the information to our trusted payment service provider, so we can process your payments for the Maven Gig Program.
4.4. All Vehicles have OnStar services. To the extent permitted by law, we will actively collect information related to your use of the Vehicle through these OnStar services. This information includes, but is not limited to: Vehicle location data, Vehicle make/model/trim, performance data, time of use, ignition on/off status, odometer, oil life remaining, tire pressure, high/low impact events, and use of individual OnStar services.
4.5. To the extent permitted by law, the Vehicle may be equipped with active cameras which record images inside the Vehicle (including images and activities of the driver and passengers) and images outside of the Vehicle. You consent to this recording and to our collection, use, and sharing of these recorded images as described in our Privacy Statement.
4.6. We will also collect information from the device through which you access the Maven App, such as device location, to provide Maven Services to you and to enable certain OnStar services, such as remote door lock/unlock.
4.7. The Maven App is used to manage Vehicle reservations in the Maven Gig Program. Your use of the Maven App is subject to this Agreement, the End User License Agreement, the Privacy Statement for the App, and the OnStar Terms and Conditions and Privacy Statement.
5.1. You must make a reservation in advance for an available Vehicle utilizing the Maven App. You will receive a confirmation of when and where the Vehicle will be ready for pick-up. The Vehicle will automatically be reserved for your use for an initial rental term ("Initial Term") of twenty-eight (28) days. Maven may make the rental term renewable in its sole discretion. If Maven decides to make the Initial Term renewable, and you wish to renew, you will be asked to agree to the renewal after receiving notification sent to you (collectively the Initial Term and any renewal term are referred to as the "Rental Term").
5.2. You may cancel or modify your reservation at no charge up to 12 hours prior to the time that the Initial Term is scheduled to begin. You will pay Maven the daily rental cost of the Vehicle for any reservation cancelled or modified less than 12 hours prior to the time the Initial Term is scheduled to begin.
5.3. You will have the option to return the Vehicle after the first week with at least 24 hours prior notice ("Early Return"). In the event of an Early Return, the applicable fees will be prorated to reflect less than a full Initial Term usage. You will be provided with at least two (2) weeks' notification prior to any price changes. You will be allowed an Early Return if you do not wish to continue the Rental Term at the changed rate.
5.4. Maven will put a pre-authorization hold of $400 plus applicable taxes on the credit card or other payment method that you have on file with Maven prior to your Rental Term.
6.1. All fees and charges plus applicable taxes and surcharges will be charged to the payment method you provide in the Maven App. Any credit or debit card you provide as your payment method must be linked to a financial institution in the U.S. or Canada. Maven does not accept cryptocurrency or prepaid credit, digital, or gift cards as a method of payment. This payment method must be your own credit or debit card issued to you and for you. The following fee table lists some of the additional fees that may apply to your participation in the Maven Gig Program in addition to rental fees (together, the "Fees"). You are responsible for any additional taxes that apply associated with the Fees. Further details of the Fees are provided below the table.

Rental fees are subject to change during the Rental Term. You will be notified two (2) weeks prior to any change in the rental fee and may opt for an Early Return if you do not agree to the change in rental fee. You will be charged rental fees weekly during the Rental Term. You may be due a partial refund, as provided in this Agreement, for Early Return (as described in the preceding Section).
6.4. Regulatory fees. You are responsible for any additional fees that apply under applicable laws, regulations, or ordinances related to your participation in the Maven Gig Program.
6.5. Taxes and surcharges. You are responsible for all applicable taxes for the rental of Vehicles under this Agreement, such as any turnover, sales, use, excise, or consumption taxes that apply.
6.6. Late fees. If you do not return a Vehicle by the end of the Rental Term as described in this Agreement, then you will pay Maven a late fee as listed in the above table for each day that the Vehicle is late.
6.7. Tolls. You will be responsible for any tolls and toll evasion fees, fines, and similar fees (collectively, "Tolls") incurred while using the Vehicle, even if the Vehicle is equipped with a Toll permit. If a Vehicle has a Toll permit, you will be charged for Toll charges incurred in using the Toll permit. These charges may be imposed well after the end of the Rental Term due to delays in billing from the provider of the Toll permit. Tolls incurred may also be subject to a $5.00 processing fee per instance.
6.8. Unfilled fuel tank fees. You must fill the fuel tank before returning a Vehicle. If a Vehicle is returned with less fuel than at time of pick up, you will pay Maven an amount equal to the cost incurred by Maven to fill the fuel tank plus a service fee listed above.
6.9. Reservation charges. You may cancel or modify your reservation at no charge up to 12 hours prior to the time that the Initial Term is scheduled to begin. You will pay Maven the fee as listed in the pricing provided in the Maven App for any reservation cancelled or modified less than 12 hours prior to the time the Initial Term is scheduled to begin.
6.10. Tickets/violations fee. You are responsible for timely responding to and paying any charges for parking tickets or moving violations incurred for the Vehicle during the Rental Term. If Maven processes and pays the charges, you will be responsible for fully reimbursing Maven for the paid charges and may be responsible for paying Maven an additional processing fee. You also authorize us to provide your personal and payment method information to the charging authorities to process a violation. You understand and agree that, if Maven receives notifications by prosecution authorities of violations of laws, rules, and/or regulations allegedly committed with a Vehicle rented by you, Maven may provide your complete and accurate data (full name, date of birth, address) at the time of the alleged traffic rule violation to the respective prosecution authorities.
6.11. Cleaning fee. You will return the Vehicle to Maven with the exterior washed, the interior vacuumed, and otherwise in a clean condition that is reasonably suitable for others to use. If you fail to do so and Maven determines in its discretion that further cleaning is necessary (applying a common-sense standard, for example, carpet or upholstery stains, offensive odors, residue from smoking, or pet hairs), you will pay Maven a cleaning fee as listed above.
6.12. Unauthorized driver fee. In addition to Maven's other rights and remedies in this Agreement for use of a Vehicle by an unauthorized driver, you agree to pay Maven a fee as specified above plus applicable taxes if you allow an unauthorized person to drive a Vehicle.
6.13. Wrong location return fee. In addition to Maven's other rights and remedies in this Agreement, Maven may charge you a wrong location return fee as listed above in the event that you return the Vehicle to the wrong location.
6.14. Towing fee. You will be responsible for all towing costs associated with Vehicle tows due to the Vehicle being out of gas, battery charge (for BOLT EVs), or any other reason resulting in towing of the Vehicle.
6.15. Cameras and other hardware. You will not remove, modify, reverse engineer, or otherwise tamper with any hardware or collateral installed in the Vehicle or the Vehicle itself. Violations of this requirement will result in a $495 fine.
6.16. Other violations. In addition to Maven's other rights and remedies in this Agreement, you agree that Maven may, in its sole discretion, charge you a fee for the actual cost to Maven for each violation of any term of this Agreement each time a violation results in a visit by Maven (or its designate service provider) to the Vehicle to remedy the situation (for example due to towing, impoundment, or other required interventions).
6.17. Payment. You will immediately pay Maven the above fees. Maven will collect the fees directly from you and you authorize Maven to charge the amount of the fees to the payment method you have authorized or through mechanisms Maven makes available to you from time to time. The charges shall be paid at least weekly during the Rental Term. Certain fees may be charged at or after the end of the Rental Term, such as fees for Vehicle loss or damage as may be identified during final inspection, or for unpaid tickets or Tolls that are identified after the Rental Term, as provided in this Agreement. You must keep a valid payment method on file with Maven to pay the above fees. You will receive a summary in your weekly statement from Maven with the breakdown of fees during, and as applicable after, the Rental Term. Weekly rental fees will be assessed on a pro-rata basis.
6.18. Cancellation & Refund Policy. If you cancel a reservation at least 12 hours prior to the start of the Initial Term, you will be refunded the amount you paid at the time you made the reservation (except for any deposits described as "non-refundable").
6.19. If you are delinquent in payment or otherwise breach this Agreement, Maven may suspend or terminate your participation in the Maven Gig Program. Maven reserves the right to assign you to a third-party collection agency if you are delinquent in paying an outstanding balance.
7.1. Maven reserves the right to provide you a Vehicle or not within our sole discretion.
7.2. You will pick up a reserved Vehicle at the date, time, and location as specified in the reservation confirmation email or in the Maven App.
7.3. At the end of the Rental Term, you agree to return the Vehicle to the Maven location as designated in the Maven App after you make an appointment to return the Vehicle via the Maven App. The Rental Term ends when you return the Vehicle to the specified Maven location in compliance with this Agreement. For example, returning a Vehicle to the wrong location does not end the Rental Term. You agree to return the Vehicle at the end of the Rental Term in the same condition that you received it, excepting normal wear and tear, on the due date and at the time and location specified at the time of the rental.
7.4. Failure to return the vehicle at the end of a Rental Term constitutes a breach of this Agreement and may result in termination of your right to participate in the Maven Gig Program, recovery of the Vehicle, late fees, and any other rights and remedies as provided in this Agreement and under applicable law.
7.5. For rentals commencing in the District of Columbia:
7.6. For rentals commencing in Massachusetts: If the Vehicle is not returned within 48 hours of the date due, we will report it to the police department as stolen or beyond our control under ALM ch. 266 Â§87A.
8.1. Maven reserves the right to recover the Vehicle from you any time that the Vehicle is found to be illegally parked, used to violate the law or this Agreement, or appears to be abandoned, in Maven's sole discretion.
8.2. Maven may also recover the Vehicle if Maven discovers that you made a misrepresentation to obtain the Vehicle, have not serviced the Vehicle when notified of a requirement to do so, or have not paid requisite fees and penalties in a timely manner. Any of these circumstances will result in an immediate end to the Rental Term. You agree that Maven does not need to notify you in advance of recovery. If the Vehicle must be recovered, you agree to pay the actual and reasonable costs incurred by Maven to recover the Vehicle and agree that the costs will be charged to your payment method on file.
9.1. You must follow the incident procedures outlined in Section 3 of this Agreement.
9.2. If any damage or loss (such as theft or vandalism) occurs to a Vehicle while in your possession, then you will be responsible for paying for the loss or repairs ("Damage Responsibility Fee") unless limited by Optional Vehicle Protection, described below. You are not responsible for normal Vehicle wear and tear. Before each reservation, you must examine the Vehicle inside and out and report any damage utilizing the provided Vehicle condition report to document any pre-existing damage with photographs. You agree that in the event of a crash, theft, or other liability incident during the Rental Term, you will immediately report the incident, as outlined in Section 3 of this Agreement, and provide Maven and its agents with a copy of any reasonably requested information relating to the incident, the allocation of fault or liability, and costs and expenses associated with the incident, including any applicable insurance coverage. You are not responsible for late fees for Vehicles stolen during the Rental Term if you immediately notify Maven of the theft as described in Section 3 above.
9.3. Maven may recover Damage Responsibility Fee by charging the payment method that you have in place with Maven or through other collection methods available to Maven, to the extent the cost of damage and liability have been agreed upon between you and Maven. You hereby authorize Maven to collect these amounts by charging the debit or credit card that you have on file with Maven.
9.4. Optional Vehicle Protection. For an additional, daily charge, Maven offers eligible Members the option to purchase an optional vehicle protection package, called a "Damage Waiver," to reduce or eliminate your Damage Responsibility Fee for damages to your Vehicle. Before purchasing a Damage Waiver, we recommend determining whether you already have rental vehicle collision coverage through your credit card or personal automobile insurance policy that would apply to and cover the Damage Responsibility Fee. Maven's Damage Waiver is not insurance and you have no obligation to purchase a Damage Waiver to reserve a Vehicle. In states where permissible, Maven offers a partial Damage Waiver, so you will only be responsible for damage or loss of the vehicle up to a capped amount, so long as you operate the Vehicle in accordance with this Agreement and applicable state and local laws. The cost of the Damage Waiver will vary based upon, among other things, the term and type of Damage Waiver purchased, the Damage Responsibility Fee reduction amount, your location, driving experience and similar factors. For full details, please see Maven Damage Waiver Terms and Disclosures.
9.5. For rentals commencing in New York: You are responsible for (a) all physical damage to the Vehicle, whether or not you are at fault; (b) mechanical damage related to an accident or caused by your abuse or neglect; and (c) theft of the Vehicle up to its fair market value if it is established that an authorized driver failed to exercise reasonable care or that an authorized driver committed, aided, or abetted in the theft of the Vehicle. If you are responsible for any damage or loss of the Vehicle, as detailed herein, your liability is limited to the lesser of the following by New York state law: (i) the actual and reasonable costs that were incurred to repair the Vehicle, including fees for towing, storage and impound, or the costs that would have been incurred if the Vehicle had been repaired, which shall reflect any discounts, price reductions, or adjustments available to us; or (ii) the fair market value of the Vehicle immediately before the damage occurred, as determined in the applicable market for the retail sale of the Vehicle, less any net disposal proceeds.
10.1. Various Commercial Platforms provide automobile liability insurance or auto physical damage insurance for your Vehicle use while driving on their Commercial Platform. Such insurance shall be primary and noncontributory to any insurance maintained by Maven except where otherwise contemplated by statute. Maven provides Vehicle insurance for your permitted personal use of the Vehicle to the extent that use is incidental to the Commercial Use (the "Permitted Incidental Use"). Your automobile insurance, if applicable, is primary to Mavenâ€™s insurance. Other than the Commercial Use and the Permitted Incidental Use, no other use of the Vehicle is permitted. Maven Gig Program automobile liability insurance provides coverage up to the minimum financial responsibility limits required by state law. If this Agreement is violated or if other parties claim damages (such as for personal injury or property damage), then you may be liable to Maven or to such other parties beyond those limits. Violations of this agreement may void the insurance coverage provided by Maven.
10.2. You understand that we may not maintain an insurance policy covering all circumstances arising from your participation in the Maven Gig Program or any event related to that participation, and you are aware that you should review your personal insurance coverage.
10.3. Notice for rentals commencing in Maryland: If our Vehicle is a replacement vehicle as defined in Section 17-104 of the Maryland Transportation Code, the liability insurance coverage on the vehicle being replaced (your vehicle) is primary, and any liability coverage we provide on the Vehicle is secondary.
10.4. Notice for rentals commencing in Michigan: For liability losses involving third persons occurring in Michigan, we are responsible only up to $20,000 for bodily injury to or death of 1 person in any 1 accident and $40,000 because of bodily injury to or death of 2 or more persons in any one accident, and only if you or a member of your immediate family or an authorized driver under this Agreement were operating the Vehicle at the time of the accident. You may be liable to us up to the same limits, and you may be liable to injured third persons for amounts over those limits.
11.1. You agree and acknowledge that you may be responsible for the full amount of any liability arising from your use of the Vehicle during the Rental Term. You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold Maven, its affiliates and respective directors, officers, shareholders, employees and agents, harmless from all claims, liability and expenses (including damage to Vehicle) arising out of your non-compliant or reckless use of the Vehicle regardless of whether those claims arise from you or any third party. We may recover damages suffered by us that you owe under this Agreement by charging the payment method you provided.
12.1. You acknowledge and agree that:
12.2. Maven is not liable to you for any indirect, incidental, special, punitive, or consequential damages including loss of opportunity or lost profits arising from this Agreement, your participation in the Maven Gig Program, or your use of the Vehicle;
12.3. Maven is not liable to you for any loss, damage, cost, or liability suffered by or imposed upon you due to any breach of this Agreement by you;
12.4. Maven has no liability with respect to any of your responsibilities under Section 3 of this Agreement;
12.5. Maven has no liability with respect to your receipt or non-receipt of payment or compensation for services you render on any Commercial Platform or your Commercial Use of a Vehicle;
12.6. If you rent a BOLT EV and choose to use the charging cord to charge the Vehicle at home, you are solely responsible for any damage to your household outlets. Maven recommends that a certified electrician inspect any outlet prior to using it to charge a BOLT EV. You are not permitted to share the Vehicle's charging card under any circumstances;
12.7. Without limiting or altering any insurance or indemnification obligations contained in this Agreement, you will fully cooperate with Maven in the defense of any claims or lawsuits related to your use or possession of a Vehicle; and
12.8. Maven is not responsible for the loss of or damage to your or any other Vehicle occupant's personal property left in the Vehicles.
13.1. Term of Agreement. This Agreement becomes effective upon your acceptance of the Terms and all ancillary consents (the Privacy Statement and the OnStar Services User Terms and Privacy Statement) when you click to accept this Agreement or by your use of any aspect of the Maven Gig Program and expires upon your notification to us by calling 1-844-HIMAVEN (1-844-446-2836) unless earlier terminated by us in our sole discretion.
13.2. Termination. Maven reserves the right to immediately terminate this Agreement at any time in the event of any breach of this Agreement by you, including but not limited to, failure to timely return the Vehicle, non-payment of the charges due under this Agreement, abandoning the Vehicle, failure to meet your responsibilities under Section 3, failure to follow the Rules of Use under Section 16, or upon the occurrence of any loss or damage to a Vehicle by providing notice to you via email. We may provide notice to you via any address (including electronic address) that we have on file for you, or via in-Maven App messaging. You will remain responsible for all fees, including account balances, and any damages and penalties incurred as of the date of termination, and shall return the Vehicle immediately upon receipt of the notice.

For Rentals Commencing in New York:
THE FOLLOWING IS A GENERAL SUMMARY OF RENTER'S RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS. FOR COMPLETE DETAILS, REFER TO THE RENTAL AGREEMENT.
OPTIONAL VEHICLE PROTECTION ("OVP"): This contract offers, for an additional charge, OVP to cover your financial responsibility for damage or loss to the rental vehicle. OVP is also commonly referred to as a "collision damage waiver". The purchase of OVP is optional and may be declined. Before deciding whether to purchase OVP, you may wish to determine whether your credit card, or the vehicle insurance maintained by yourself or someone in your household, affords you any coverage for damage to the rental vehicle, and the amount of deductible under any such coverage.
OVP -- WHEN VOID: OVP is void and shall not apply to the following situations:
1. If the damage or loss is caused as a result of the driver's intentional acts; willful, wanton, or reckless conduct of the driver; or operation of the vehicle while intoxicated or unlawfully impaired by the use of alcohol or drugs;
2. The rental vehicle company entered into the rental transaction based on fraudulent or materially false information supplied by the renter or authorized driver;
3. The damage or loss arises out of the use of the rental vehicle:
(a) while engaged in the commission of a crime, other than a traffic infraction;
(b) to carry persons or property for hire, to push or tow anything, while engaged in a speed contest, operating off road, or for driver's training;
(c) by a person other than: (1) an authorized driver; (2) the renter's child over the age of eighteen or a parent or parent-in-law of the renter, provided such child, parent or parent-in-law is properly licensed to operate a motor vehicle and resides in the same household as the renter; or (3) a parking valet or parking garage attendant for compensation and in the normal course of employment;
(d) outside of the continental United States when not specifically authorized by the rental agreement;
(e) where the renter or authorized driver, if different, or the renter's child over the age of eighteen or a parent or parent-in-law of the renter, if applicable, failed to comply with the requirements for reporting damage or loss as set forth in law.
OVP -- DAMAGE REPORTING REQUIREMENTS: If the rental vehicle sustains damage or loss, the renter and other authorized driver, as applicable, are required to complete and return an incident report notice to the rental vehicle company. An authorized driver other than the renter is only required to complete and return an incident report notice to the rental vehicle company if such authorized driver was operating the vehicle when the incident occurred.
OVP -- RIGHT TO INSPECT VEHICLE DAMAGES: The renter and his/her insurer have the right to request an inspection of the vehicle damages within seventy-two hours of the return of the vehicle. Failure of the renter or his/her insurer to request an inspection within seventy-two hours of return shall be deemed a waiver of such person or entity's right to inspect the damaged vehicle.
THEFT OF THE RENTAL VEHICLE: If the rental vehicle is stolen during the term of a rental agreement, an authorized driver must report the theft of the rental vehicle to the rental vehicle company and a law enforcement agency within twelve hours of learning of such theft.
