1.2 Our Platform helps Hosts create, list and host Parking Spaces with the intention of Parkers being able to discover, book, share, manage and use private car parks around the world.

1.3 At present, our Platform in the United Kingdom is intended for business users only. You may not access or use the Platform in your capacity as a consumer (as defined in the Consumer Rights Act 2015). Accordingly, you agree that your access and use of our Platform is for purposes that are wholly or mainly within your trade, business, craft, or profession.

1.4 These general terms and conditions ("Terms and Conditions") will apply to anyone who views or uses the Platform in the United Kingdom ("you") and to all services provided, arranged or managed by Parkable to or for you when using the Platform in the United Kingdom ("Services"). If you use the Platform outside of the United Kingdom, please refer instead to our terms and conditions for the relevant territory.

1.5 Whether you register an account with us or not, you will be bound by these Terms and Conditions in full. These general Terms and Conditions apply to any Services that we provide to you.

1.6 If you wish to book a parking space that is publicly advertised through the Platform you will also need to enter into the Licence Agreement directly with the parking space Host (on whose behalf we act as an agent) and you will be bound by the Parker Agreement.

1.7 If you are a private parking space host and you wish to offer your parking space to the public through Parkable you will be bound by the Licence Agreement and our Host Agreement. You may also elect to offer rewards in which case you will be subject to our Reward Terms.

1.8 Parking spaces that are offered by hosts by way of an invitation to private parkers who become “members” of the carpark are subject to private contract arrangements between the host and parker. This includes carparks where access is restricted to Parkers who access Parkable using single-sign on and selected email domains permitted by the host.

1.9 Parkable is not a party to or involved with private contract arrangements, including private Licence Agreements or Parker Agreements, and accordingly, subject to clause 6.1 of the general Terms and Conditions, you hereby fully and forever release Parkable and its partners, employees, attorneys, agents, successors, representatives, shareholders, parent companies, subsidiaries, affiliated companies and assigns, jointly and severally (collectively, the "Parkable Parties") from any and all claims and causes of action, in law or in equity, disputes, suits, debts, liens, rights, contracts, agreements, acts, promises, liabilities, obligations, demands, damages, losses, costs, fees (including, without limitation, those of attorneys) and expenses, of whatsoever kind or nature, whether known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, which exist in connection with the provision of the Parking Space or representations made by Host or Parker to the other.

1.10 You will also need to enter into an Enterprise Agreement with us, and you will be known as an "Enterprise Client" if you are a private host and you wish to

1.10.1 restrict access to a private group of member Parkers; or.

1.10.2 access additional Parkable services including provision of signage, hardware, managed services, specific features not generally available, or access control.

1.11 These Terms and Conditions, the Licence Agreement, Parker Agreement, Host Agreement, Reward Terms and Enterprise Agreement (collectively, as applicable to you, the "Agreement") may be amended from time to time (subject to clause 21.5 of the Host Agreement,, the provisions of which shall prevail over any inconsistency or conflict with this clause 1.11).
