Teleport Terms & Policies

VERSION September 15 2020

TELEPORT LLC.

  • 1. These terms (“Terms”) constitute a legal agreement between you and Teleport LLC, (“Teleport,” “we,” “us”). Any person who uses Teleportapp.io (the “Site”) or any associated mobile applications (the “Apps”) is a “User” and agrees to these Terms governing his or her use of the services offered via the Site (the “Services”).
  • 2. Definitions
    Definitions for capitalized terms not otherwise defined below are set forth in section fourteen (14) of these Terms.
  • 3. Description of the Services
    Teleport is an online platform that facilitates connection between Users and/or Members (as defined below) regarding merchandise, goods or products (a “Package”) desired by a Member and the transportation of a Package(s) to a given location (a “Destination”) by a given date (“Delivery Date”). A Member wanting to send a Package to a Destination (a “Sending Member”) may post a message (a “Request”) on the Site describing the Package and the price he or she is willing to pay upon its delivery to the Destination. A Member traveling to the Sending Member’s Destination (a “Traveling Member”) can accept a Request by indicating that he or she accepts the Sending Member’s terms or the Traveling Member may negotiate a price. Once the Sending Member and Traveling Member agree upon acceptable terms, the Traveling Member and the Sending Member enter into an agreement (“Delivery Agreement”) regarding delivery of the Package for the agreed-upon price. The Delivery Agreement is binding after the Traveling Member and Sending Member confirm pickup of the Package (a “Transaction”). A Traveling Member may post a message on the Site or the Apps regarding his or her travel plans (a “Trip”) in solicitation of Requests. Teleport is not responsible for and does not control the Content found in Trips and Requests; however, Teleport may decline to post any Trip or Request at its sole discretion. Teleport provides a collateral service to facilitate Transactions. Teleport is not responsible for anything that may occur on or off the Site or the Apps before, during or after a Transaction takes place. Teleport is not a party to any Transaction and does not sell, take possession of, or deliver Packages. Each Member bears sole responsibility for fulfilling his or her obligations in any Transaction. You agree that the provisions of Sections two (2) through five (5) of these Terms apply to all Transactions agreed to on the Site and Apps and supplement whatever local or international law may govern your Transaction. Teleport will not voluntarily intervene in any legal dispute between Members. Teleport IS NOT LICENSED BY ANY RELEVANT AUTHORITY WORLDWIDE. AS A RESULT, THE SERVICES ARE NOT AVAILABLE TO CONSUMERS WHO ARE RESIDENTS OF ANY JURISDICTION THAT REQUIRES A LICENSE TO OFFER INTERNET ESCROW SERVICES TO CONSUMERS RESIDING IN THAT JURISDICTION.
  • 4. Delivery and Import
    The Traveling Member and the Sending Member shall (a) bear all legal responsibility for assuring the package can be lawfully transported and imported to the Destination and (b) hold harmless Teleport for any loss or liability they incur with the violation of any import, customs or tax law. All Members acknowledge that Teleport has no duty to ensure a Transaction complies with all applicable law. Packages sent from any country (a “Point of Origin”) to a foreign Destination may be subject to import taxes, customs duties, and fees levied by governmental authorities upon arrival at the Destination. The Traveling Member is the importer of record and is responsible for compliance with all laws and regulations of the Destination country. Teleport has no control over and cannot estimate or calculate these charges in advance of or during delivery. Customs policies can vary widely from country to country and the Traveling Member should contact the relevant customs authority for more information. A package imported unlawfully to the Destination country may be subject to confiscation and forfeiture. Customs clearance procedures may be required at the Destination depending on the type of Package and the law of the Destination country. Clearance procedures and delays are beyond Teleports' control and can delay delivery. A Package remains the property of the Traveling Member until the Sending Member or a recipient designated by the Sending Member (“Recipient”) accepts delivery and takes possession at the Destination. All risk of loss or damage to the Package is borne by the Traveling Member until delivery is accepted. All prices agreed to by Traveling Members in response to Requests are final and inclusive of any and all customs duties and/or taxes due on sale.
  • 5. Payment and Collateral, cancellation.
    When paying for an order with a bank card, payment processing (including entering the card number) takes place on a secure page of the processing system that has passed international certification. This means that your confidential data (card details, registration data, etc.) do not enter the online store, their processing is completely protected and no one, including our online store, can receive the client's personal and banking data. When working with card data, the information security standard developed by the international payment systems Visa and Mastercard-Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is used, which ensures the secure processing of the details of the Holder's Bank Card. The applied data transmission technology guarantees security for transactions with Bank cards by using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), Verified by Visa, Secure Code protocols, and closed banking networks with the highest degree of protection.

    Billing or credit card information is required once the Sending Member accepts an offer of delivery from a Traveling Member.
    (a). The Sending Member shall provide credit card or other payment information which is available for his/her country as collateral to guarantee payment to the Traveling Member via the Site or Apps upon successful delivery of the Package. Upon the verification of delivery of the package by the Sending Member, the Sending Member account will be charged and paid (“Payment”) to the Traveling Member. Teleport will take a percentage fee of the Payment for services provided which will be disclosed to Traveling Member.
    (b) The Traveling Member shall provide credit card or other payment information to Teleport as collateral to guarantee reimbursement of the specified value of the Package (“Reimbursement”) to the Sending Member should the Package be lost or damaged.


    If a Sending Member rejects delivery and does not confirm the delivery of the Package and requesting Reimbursement, Teleport will refund the payment for the services to the Sending Member if Teleport determines at its sole discretion that the Sending Member cancelled the Transaction for a Valid Reason. “Valid Reasons” for canceling the Transaction are: (i) the Package delivered did not match the Package sent by the Sending Member or (ii) the Package is damaged or broken. Further, Teleport will not process a Reimbursement unless the Sending Member notifies Teleport of the delivery delay or the non-conformity of the Package within 24 hours of the scheduled or actual delivery and, in the case of a non-conforming Package, unless the Sending Member provides Teleport with evidence of the Package’s non-conformity with the Request.
    (c) The Sending Member shall provide credit card or other payment information which is available for his/her country in order to receive reimbursement payments if the Package does not conform with the Request.
    (d) The Traveling Member shall provide credit card or other payment information which is available for his/her country in order to receive payments for successful delivery of a Package.
    (e) In any case, the Transaction is cancelled by one or both of the sides, Teleport’s commission is non-refundable.


    Dear Clients, we inform you that when you request a refund if you cancel a purchase, the refund is made exclusively to the same bank card from which the payment was made.
  • 6. Account Registration.
    In order to use the Teleport platform, you will need to register as a Member and create an account (a “Teleport Account”). You do not need to provide credit card or other payment information to browse the Site and Apps and bid on Content. However, as a condition to enter into a Transaction, you will need to provide credit card or other payment information after accepting a Delivery Agreement to transact a delivery. You may register directly or through a third party, such as Facebook. Your mobile phone number and email address are required to complete your registration and create a Teleport Account. You must be at least 18 years old to become a Member and engage in a Transaction. You shall provide Teleport with accurate, complete, and updated registration information. Failure to do so shall constitute a breach of these Terms and Conditions and may result in immediate termination of our services and deletion of your Teleport Account.

You acknowledge and agree that Teleport does not have an obligation to conduct background checks on any user though you expressly authorize it do so at its sole discretion.

You understand that Teleport does not make any attempt to verify the User’s statements or other Content posted on the Site. Teleport makes no representation or warranties regarding the compatibility of the User’s intended use of the Site or Services with the actual use given to the Site by other Users. (a) Lost, Damaged or Stolen Property. To the maximum extent permitted by law, the parties to a Transaction exonerate, and shall hold harmless, Teleport from any and all liability for lost, stolen or damaged property that may result from complications or problems in delivery of the Package, from the misconduct of a User or Member, or from any other cause of harm, connected in any way with the Services, except for willful misconduct by an authorized representative of Teleport.

You represent that you are entitled to disclose your Third Party Account login information to Teleport and/or grant Teleport access to your Third Party Account (including, but not limited to, for use of the Site, Services and Apps), and that doing so does not constitute a breach of any of the terms and conditions that govern your use of the applicable Third Party Account and without obligating Teleport to pay any fees or making Teleport subject to any usage limitations imposed by such third party service providers. By granting Teleport access to any Third Party Accounts, you understand that Teleport will access, make available and store (if applicable) any Content that you have provided to and stored in your Third Party Account (“SNS Content”) so that it is available on and through the Site, Apps and Services via your Teleport Account and Teleport Account profile page. Unless otherwise specified in these Terms, all SNS Content, if any, will be considered to be Member Content for purposes of these Terms. Depending on the Third Party Accounts you choose and subject to the privacy settings configured for your Third Party Accounts, personally identifiable information that you post to your Third Party Accounts will be available on and through your Teleport Account on the Site, Apps and Services. Please note that if a Third Party Account or associated service becomes unavailable or Teleports' access to such Third Party Account is terminated by the third party service provider, then SNS Content will no longer be available on and through the Site, Services and Apps. You have the ability to disable the connection between your Teleport Account and your Third Party Accounts, at any time, by accessing the “Settings” section of the Site and Apps. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR USE OF THIRD PARTY SERVICE ACCOUNTS AND YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS IS GOVERNED SOLELY BY YOUR AGREEMENT(S) WITH THE RELEVANT PROVIDER. Teleport makes no effort to review any SNS Content for any purpose, including but not limited to, for accuracy, legality or non-infringement and Teleport is not responsible for any SNS Content. We will create your Teleport Account and your Teleport Account profile page for your use of the Site and Apps based upon the personal information you provide to us or that we obtain via an SNS as described above.
  • 14. PRIVACY POLICY.
    This section of the Terms contains and informs you of Teleports' policies and procedures regarding the collection, use and disclosure of personal information we receive from Users and Members (the “Privacy Policy”). This Privacy Policy applies only to information that you provide to us through the Site. We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time to reflect changes to our information practices. If we make any material changes we will notify you by email (sent to the e-mail address specified in your Teleport Account) or by means of a notice on the Site and Apps prior to the change becoming effective. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices. Unless otherwise defined in this Privacy Policy, terms used in this Privacy Policy have the same meanings as in our Terms of Service (https://www.teleportapp.io). For purposes of this Privacy Policy, the terms “using” and “processing” information include using cookies on a computer, subjecting the information to statistical or other analysis and using or handling information in any way, including, but not limited to collecting, storing, evaluating, modifying, deleting, using, combining, disclosing and transferring information within our organization or among our affiliates, and to our associates, within the United States or internationally. (a) International Transfer. YOUR INFORMATION MAY BE TRANSFERRED TO – AND MAINTAINED ON – COMPUTERS LOCATED OUTSIDE OF YOUR STATE, PROVINCE, COUNTRY OR OTHER GOVERNMENTAL JURISDICTION WHERE THE PRIVACY LAWS MAY NOT BE AS PROTECTIVE AS THOSE IN YOUR JURISDICTION. YOUR CONSENT TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY FOLLOWED BY YOUR SUBMISSION OF SUCH INFORMATION REPRESENTS YOUR AGREEMENT TO THAT TRANSFER. (b) Information Collection and Use. Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide and improve our Site, services, features and content, to administer your use of the Site and any future or related Apps (together, the “Service”) and to enable users to enjoy and easily navigate the Site. In addition, personal information is required for the completion of deliveries and packages. You expressly agree to these uses. (c) Personally Identifiable Information. When you register with us through the Site and become a Member, when responding to or post a trip or travel itinerary or post a request through the Site, or when you wish to contact another Member, we will ask you for personally identifiable information and/or obtain this information through your Third Party Account. This refers to information about you that can be used to contact or identify you (“Identity Information”). Identity Information includes, but is not limited to, name, phone number, email address, and address, but does not include your credit card number, bank account information or billing information. In order to process some of your Transactions through the Site and Apps, we may also ask for your credit card number, bank account information and other billing information (“Billing Information”) (Identity Information and Billing Information together, “Personal Information”). Addresses for travel or trips also may be considered Identity Information. Some Personal Information is required, like your name and email address, and other Personal Information is optional, like your date of birth. We use your Personal Information to provide the Service and administer your inquiries. We collect Personal Information in connection with your registration for a Teleport Account. If you decide to register by logging into a Third Party Account via our Site, we will obtain the Personal Information you have provided to the applicable SNS (such as your “real” name, email address, profile picture, names of SNS friends, names of SNS groups to which you belong, other information you make publicly available via the applicable SNS and/or other information you authorize Teleport to access by authorizing the SNS to provide such information) from your Third Party Accounts. Depending on the Third Party Accounts you choose and subject to the privacy settings that you have set in such Third Party Accounts, you understand that by granting us access to the Third Party Accounts, we will access, make available and store (if applicable and as permitted by the SNS and authorized by you) the information in your Third Party Accounts so that it is available on and through your Teleport Account on the Site and Service. If there is information about your “friends” or people with whom you are associated in your Third Party Account, the information we obtain about those “friends” or people with whom you are associated, may also depend on the privacy settings such people have with the applicable SNS. We also collect the other information that you provide as part of registration and the administration and personalization of your Teleport Account profile (e.g., without limitation, your post/zip code (independently of Personal Information) and individual preferences or demographic information) (“Non-Identifying Information”). We use your Personal Information (in some cases, in conjunction with your Non-Identifying Information) mainly to provide the Service, help you complete your Transactions, and administer your inquiries. Certain Non-Identifying Information would be considered a part of your Personal Information if it were combined with other identifiers (for example, combining your post/zip code with your street address) in a way that enables you to be identified. But the same pieces of information are considered Non-Identifying Information when they are taken alone or combined only with other non-identifying information (for example, your demographic information). We may combine your Personal Information with Non-Identifying Information and aggregate it with information collected from other Teleport Users (defined below) to attempt to provide you with a better experience, to improve the quality and value of the Service and to analyze and understand how our Site, Apps and Service are used. We may also use the combined information without aggregating it to serve you specifically, for instance to inform you of a product based on your preferences or restrictions. We also use your Personal Information to contact you with Teleport newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive such communications from us, please follow the unsubscribe instructions provided in any of the communications. Please note that we may also use your Personal Information to contact you with information related to your use of the Service; you may not opt out of these notifications. (d) Log Data. When you visit the Site and Apps, whether as a Member or a non-registered User just browsing (any of these, a “Teleport User”), our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a Site (“Log Data”). This Log Data may include information such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type or the webpage you were visiting before you came to our Site, pages of our Site that you visit, the time spent on those pages, information you search for on our Site, access times and dates, and other statistics. We use this information to monitor and analyze use of the Site, Apps and Services and for the Site’s technical administration, to increase our Site’s functionality and user-friendliness, and to better tailor our Site to our visitors’ needs. We also use this information to verify that visitors to the Site meet the criteria required to process their requests. We do not treat Log Data as Personal Information or use it in association with other Personal Information, though we may aggregate, analyze and evaluate such information for the same purposes as stated above regarding other Non-Identifying Information. (e) Cookies. Like many websites, we use “cookies” to collect information. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computer’s hard disk for record-keeping purposes. We use cookies for two purposes. First, we utilize persistent cookies to save your login information for future logins to the Site. Second, we utilize session ID cookies to enable certain features of the Site, to better understand how you interact with the Site and to monitor aggregate usage by Teleport Users and web traffic routing on the Site. Unlike persistent cookies, session cookies are deleted from your computer when you log off from the Site and Service and then close your browser. Third party advertisers on the Site may also place or read cookies on your browser. You can instruct your browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use all portions of the Site or all functionality of the Service. (f) Web Beacons. Our Site and Apps may contain electronic images known as Web beacons (sometimes called single-pixel gifs) and are used along with cookies to compile aggregated statistics to analyze how our Site is used and may be used in some of our emails to let us know which emails and links have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of our customer communications and marketing campaigns. (g) Contacting a Teleport Member. As part of the Service, after a Delivery Agreement Teleport, the Traveling Member and Sending Member will be able to share their contact information such as mobile phone number and email address (“Contact Information”) so that members can contact each other for the purposes of coordinating Package pickup and delivery. The shared Contact Information also includes the contact information of the Recipient for the purposes of coordinating delivery. Teleport will notify the Recipient of the pending Package delivery via the provided Contact Information. Teleport will only share Contact Information among the Traveling Member, Sending Member and Recipient of a Delivery Agreement. Teleport will also send messages via email, SMS or push notifications to Members as appropriate to guide and inform Members as they navigate the Site or Apps. (h) Phishing. Identity theft and the practice currently known as “phishing” are of great concern to Teleport. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is a top priority. We do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information, your bank account information, your Teleport Account login, or identification in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication. For more information about phishing, visit the Federal Trade Commission’s Site at http://www.ftc.gov. (i) Information Sharing and Disclosure – Overview.
