1. Description of the Sjees-app. With this app you gain insight into your daily travel pattern and you can save great gifts and discounts by traveling by bicycle. The app automatically registers how you travel and entices you to take the bike more often by means of fun challenges. Of course, coupled to attractive prices.
The app helps you to make a conscious and smart travel choice and makes you aware of your own travel behaviour. The app uses so-called “notifications” to proactively inform you on information about your travels that may be relevant to you. Furthermore, we will only use notifications for announcements of the Sjees campaign of Brainport Bereikbaar. We will expressly not use notifications to send advertisements or send you commercial offers that are not related to the Sjees campaign. The Sjees-app is offered in the Dutch and English language.
3. Personal Use. You must be the owner or sole user of the smartphone on which the app will be installed. In particular, you may not install the software on a mobile device used by a third party. If you sell, lease, loan or otherwise make your Smartphone available to a third party, you must ensure that the app is not used by that third party with your account. It is not allowed to use the app on multiple devices at the same time. You may not use the app to locate other persons.
The app is available for Android and Apple iOS via Google Play (Android) and Apple iStore (iOS). You must have a smartphone with iOS 10.0 or higher or Android 11.0 or higher. For the App to function properly, your smartphone must have a data subscription and WiFi and GPS must be enabled in the settings of your smartphone. You are responsible for correctly downloading, installing and using the app.
4. Account. After installation it is required to register for Sjees by creating an account and logging in to the App. You must treat your username and password for your account as strictly confidential and may not give them to third parties or otherwise make the Sjees-app available to third parties through your account.

Sjees does not include the delivery or operation of telecommunication devices, such as the Smartphone itself, nor the provision of telecommunication services, more specifically internet or online connectivity. Your mobile operator and/or other service provider are responsible for these products and services.
Your use of the smartphone must not compromise the security or integrity of our services, computer systems and networks, whether by allowing intruders to gain access, introducing viruses or other threats, placing a disproportionate or unreasonably large load on the service or the infrastructure, or using any computer program, routine, file or device to disrupt or damage the operation of the Sjees-app.
5. Cost. We make the Sjees-app available to you free of charge. However, use of the App requires the use of mobile phone or internet services from your mobile operator and/or other service providers, including but not limited to an internet connection. We are not responsible or liable for the cost of such services. Please contact your mobile operator or other service provider to obtain information about such charges.
6. Data Protection. Your account and travel details are privacy-sensitive information. When you use the Sjees-app, we collect, process and store your travel data for the purposes of the Sjees-app. We respect your personal information and your privacy and, therefore, do not use your information other than for the services we offer with the Sjees-app. This is described in more detail in our privacy statement, which is in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
In accordance with the guidelines of the Dutch Data Protection Authority different kinds of measures have been taken to ensure that the data is stored and processed with appropriate care and security.
When using the app, the following mobility data is collected:
- Start and end time of each ride;

- Distance travelled, journey time and average speed;
- Means of transport for each ride;
- Purpose of the ride;
- Frequently visited places;
- Frequently chosen routes;
- Modal share;
- Weather conditions during the ride;
- Estimate of costs, CO2 savings and calories burned per ride;
- Any feedback given.
In addition, we ask for additional (demographic) background information, travel behaviour, motivations and satisfaction with the service via the app and associated surveys. With this information the effects of the Sjees-app are measured and evaluated.
To gain access to this mobility data, we ask you to make your location data available to the app.
7. Indemnity. You are obligated to indemnify and defend us from and against all claims, liabilities, damages, costs and expenses, including legal fees, arising out of any breach of these terms by you.
The foregoing is subject to us (i) informing you in writing and in detail without undue delay of a claim from a third party, (ii) authorizing you to bring legal and extrajudicial proceedings against the third party, and (iii) informing you at your reasonably assist costs so that you can defend yourself against the claims.
8. Warranties, Limitation of Liability. All liability of us with regard to the Sjees-app is hereby expressly excluded, except in the case of gross negligence or intent. We do not guarantee the availability of the Sjees-app or the accuracy of the positioning functionality. Although we do our utmost to keep the Sjees-app and parts thereof up-to-date, we unfortunately cannot guarantee that this will be the case at any given time and that the Sjees-app will work correctly on every brand and type of Smartphone. No rights can be derived from information provided by the Sjees-app.
9. Duration and cancellation. Both you and we have the right to terminate the use of the Sjees-app at any time and with immediate effect. The right to dissolve on the grounds of mis-use remains unaffected. Dissolution on the grounds of mis-use is particularly possible if you fail to fulfil your obligations described in Article 2.
You can stop using the Sjees-app by removing the app from your smartphone. If you want to terminate your account, you must indicate via firstname.lastname@example.org that you no longer wish to maintain the Sjees-app and the account. We will then close your account within a reasonable period of time and remove all of your personal and mobility data.
We can terminate your account with the Sjees-app by deleting or blocking it. We will notify you of this by e-mail. In the event that we terminate your account for mis-use, it is not permitted to create a new account without our express consent.
When you cancel your account, all accrued rewards in the account will expire.
10. Changes. We reserve the right to change these terms and conditions at any time if the change does not negatively affect the rights of the user. If the user does not accept these changes, the user may terminate this agreement as of the effective date of the change. We will inform the user of intended changes by e-mail at least 10 days in advance.
11. Audits (fraud). In the context of combating fraud, we reserve the right to carry out checks on the data provided by the user and/or data registered by the user. The suspicion of fraud is a reason to immediately remove the user from the Sjees-app and delete the associated account. Any accrued rewards will expire in the event of fraud and will not be paid to the participant. In the event that we have already paid out accrued rewards to the participant, the participant is obliged to repay these rewards to us.
12. Jurisdiction and dispute resolution. These terms and conditions are governed by and construed in accordance with Dutch law to the exclusion of its private international law.

If any provision of these terms and conditions or part thereof is void, illegal or unenforceable, the validity, legality and/or enforceability of the remaining provisions shall not be affected or diminished in any way. We and you agree to replace a void, illegal or unenforceable provision with an effective and feasible provision that is as close as possible to the economic purpose of the void, illegal or unenforceable provision. The same applies in case of an omission.
