The following sets out the GRABiD Platform rules for both Senders and Carriers, as well as each party's key obligations and promises in relation to any Carriage Agreement they may enter into through use of the Platform. It is important you understand your obligations as you may be liable to us for any unauthorised use of the Platform.
1.1 You acknowledge and agree that, in order to use the Platform and enter into a Carriage Agreement on the Platform, you must establish a User Account with GRABiD. Users may participate on the Platform as both a Sender and Carrier, subject to GRABiD's approval.
1.3 GRABiD relies on information provided to it by each User and you warrant that all User Information provided by you is accurate, current, complete, correct and complies with all relevant Laws, including the Heavy Vehicle National Law.
1.4 The Platform operates on Australian Eastern Standard Time or Australian Eastern Daylight Savings Time depending on the time of year, and timing information provided by a Sender in respect of Freight must be provided in that context unless otherwise indicated.
1.5 With regard to your use of your User Account, you warrant and represent to GRABiD and to each other User that:
2.2 Your licence to use the Platform is conditional upon you:
2.4 By using the Platform, you acknowledge and agree that:
3.1 Companies or organisations may apply to GRABiD to become a Principal User.

Your use of the Platform as a Principal User is subject to GRABiD's prior approval.
3.2 A person who wishes to use the platform as a representative of a Principal User must first be accepted as a User pursuant to clause 1.1.

4.4 You agree not attempt to create a Carriage Agreement in respect of a Delivery advertised on the Platform other than via the Platform, or to otherwise bypass or attempt to bypass the Platform or its integrated payment systems in order to derive a benefit from another User (whether in the position of Carrier or Sender) and, if you do so or attempt to do so, you agree that GRABiD may determine, with or without notice to you, that your licence to use this Platform ceases immediately.

5.3 The Sender will be charged the Price automatically by the Platform upon the formation of the Carriage Agreement. The Price will be charged first as a deduction against any credits the Sender has in its digital wallet on the Platform and then against the Sender's nominated credit card. It is the Sender's responsibility to ensure that it has provided the Platform with the correct account details and credit card information. If the Platform is unable to charge the Sender the Price, the Carriage Agreement is automatically rescinded by the Sender.

GRABiD will not be liable for any loss, cost, damage, or Claim (including for negligence) suffered or incurred by a User in connection with a failure to receive or delay in receiving payment in respect of a Carriage Agreement (including, but not limited to, a failure caused by the supply of inaccurate account information).
