2. No representations, no warranties, and no liability of MATBUS
By providing the App, MATBUS makes no representations or warranties that any information or content provided to you through the App is accurate, complete, reliable, or error-free. All content, information, and services provided to you through the App are provided on an "as available" and on an “as is” basis. MATBUS makes no representations about the suitability, reliability, availability, timeliness, and accuracy of the information, software, products, services, and related graphics contained on the App for any purpose. To the maximum extent permitted by law, all such information, software, products, services, and related graphics are provided “as is” without warranty or condition of any kind. MATBUS hereby disclaims all warranties and conditions with regard to the App and related information, software, products, services, and related graphics, including all implied warranties or conditions of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, and non-infringement.
To the maximum extent permitted by law, in no event shall MATBUS be liable for any direct, indirect, punitive, incidental, special, or consequential damages or any damages whatsoever, including, without limitation, damages for loss of use, data, or profits, arising out of or in any way connected with the use or performance of the App, with the delay or inability to use the App, the provision of or failure to provide services, or for any information, software, products, services, and related graphics obtained through the App, or otherwise arising out of the use of the App, whether based on contract, tort, negligence, strict liability, or otherwise, even if MATBUS or any of its contractors have been advised of the possibility of damages. If you are dissatisfied with any portion of the App, or with any of this Terms of Use, your sole and exclusive remedy is to discontinue using the App.

3. Your risk, responsibility, and indemnity
You agree to comply with all applicable laws and to not engage in any illegal conduct when accessing and using the App. Your use of the App is solely at your own risk and you are fully responsible for any consequences arising from your use of the App. You assume all responsibility for obtaining access to and using the App, and that access and use may involve third-party fees (such as internet service provider or airtime charges) for which you are solely responsible.

If MATBUS provides any links or other direction to third party content or websites through the App, you agree that the same is provided solely as a convenience to you and if you decide to access such external links or websites that you do so entirely at your own risk. MATBUS is not responsible for the content and privacy practices of other websites and MATBUS encourages you to examine the privacy policy and disclaimer of each site and make your own decisions regarding the disclosure of your personal information to that site.
You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless MATBUS, its officers, directors, employees, agents, and third-parties, of any losses, costs, claims, causes of actions, actions, demands, lawsuits, liabilities, and expenses (including reasonable attorney’s fees) relating to or arising out of our use of or inability to use the App, any claim, your violation of these Terms, or your violation of any rights of a third-party or for your violation of any applicable laws, rules, or regulations. MATBUS reserves the right, at its own cost, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you, in which even you will fully cooperate with MATBUS in asserting any available defenses.

The App and all of its contents may not be used or reproduced without the express written consent of MATBUS. You shall not copy, repackage, redistribute, or modify the App or its contents, in whole or in part, in any manner whatsoever.

Any unauthorized use of the App automatically terminates the license granted by this Terms of Use.

5. Collection, retention, use, and disclosure of your personal information
To use the App, you must provide certain personal information. MATBUS utilizes Via Mobility LLS to support the provision of the App, and so that personal information may be provided to Via.

IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ANY PART OF THE MATBUS PRIVACY POLICY OR THE COLLECTION OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION, THEN DO NOT INSTALL OR USE THE APP.

You will not share your access credentials with, or all access to your user account by, another person.

6. Collection of other information
We may collect and store your location information if you enable your mobile device to send it to us. We may also collect information that identifies the mobile device you are using. Collection of this information improves the provision of the App. You may opt-out of location-based services at any time by editing the setting at the device level.

We may collect and store information that is generated automatically as you use the App, including your preferences and anonymous usage statistics. When you visit the App, we may receive and record information on our server logs from your browser, including your unique device ID, IP address, and from cookies and similar technology. We may use information collected through these tracking technologies to remember information so that you won’t have to re-enter it on subsequent visits, to provide and monitor the effectiveness of the App, to automatically update the App on your mobile devices, and for other purposes. Most browsers allow you to block and delete cookies, though depending on your mobile device you may not be able to delete tracking technologies from your device. Deleting or blocking cookies and other tracking technology may cause the App to not work properly. By using the App, you are authorizing us to gather, parse, and retain data related to the provision of the Service.

7. Your consent to communications
You agree that by entering into this Terms of Use or accessing or using the App that MATBUS, MATBUS’s service provider, Via Mobility LLC (and its agents and affiliates), or both, may send you text messages, calls, emails, and other communications for transactional, administration, and operative purposes (including but not limited to communications concerning your account or access to or use of the App). These communications may use pre-recorded or artificial voice messages and may be generated by automatic telephone dialing systems. Message and data rates may apply.

8. Modification, suspension, discontinuation, and termination
MATBUS may at any time modify, suspend, or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the App or any part of the App, with or without notice to you.

9. Severability, waiver, modification, and terms
If any provision of this Terms of Use is determined to be invalid or unenforceable in whole or in part, such invalidity or unenforceability attaches only to such provision and all other provisions in this Terms of Use remain in full force and effect. MATBUS’s failure to assert any provision or right under this Terms of Use is not a waiver by MATBUS of such provision or right.
MATBUS reserves the right to revise and update this Terms of Use in its sole discretion, and will post any updates to the Terms of Use on the App. These Terms of Use, together with MATBUS’s privacy policy, constitute the entire agreement between you and MATBUS related to your use of the App.

You agree that you will bring any claims in, and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in County of Cass, in the state of North Dakota.
