Free2Move is not a tour operator.
"User" in these terms and conditions, means you as a user of Free2Move. Users can only be natural persons unless they are expressly registered as a company (legal entity) with Free2Move. Certain uses of Free2Move (such as mobility service orders) are available only to registered users who have a Free2Move user name ("Customers"). The Free2Move user name can also be used by Customers to access the services of certain cooperation partners of Free2Move ("Cooperation Partners").
A. Subject matter of these terms and conditions of use
These Terms and Conditions of Use apply to the use of Free2Move, by Users and Customers such as via a web browser and apps, and the use by Customers of their Free2Move Account and Free2Move user name. When ordering services from a Provider via Free2Move, the contract for the provision of the services will be between the Customer and the relevant Provider and will be subject to the terms and conditions of that Provider (a “Mobility Contract”) and not these Terms and Conditions of Use.
B. Free2Move account with Free2Move user name
B.1 Registering a Free2Move Account
B.1.1 A Free2Move account is registered when the User completes the online registration form, accepts these Terms and Conditions of Use and the GHM Mobile Development GmbH sends the User confirmation that his/her registration has been successful.
On successful registration, Free2Move will provide the Customer with an account ("Free2Move Account") which has a Customer user name ("Free2Move User Name“), a Free2Move password and a Personal Identification Number ("Free2Move PIN") (see Clause B.2) (each as chosen by the Customer).
B.2 Free2Move Account and Free2Move User Name
B.2.1 The User is required to give full and accurate information regarding his/her name, address, e-mail address and other required data for his/her Free2Move Account (see Clause B.2.3). Free2Move reserves the right to refuse to open a Free2Move Account for a User, particularly if there is legitimate reason to believe that the User will not comply with the terms of these Terms and Conditions of Use.
B.2.2 Customers will keep their login information (Free2Move User Name, Free2Move password, Free2Move PIN) confidential and not provide third parties with access to Free2Move via their login information or otherwise allow them to use their login information. Customers will be held accountable for any use of Free2Move by means of their login information as well as any other use of their login information.

By entering his/her Free2Move User Name to access and use the offers and services of a Co-operation Partner, the Customer agrees that Free2Move may share with the Co-operation Partner other information about the Customer that Free2Move holds at that time in order to compare the details held in relation to that Customer by each of Free2Move and the Co-operation Partner. At the same time, the Customer agrees that the information held in his/her Free2Move Account can be transferred to the Cooperation Partner if this is required by the Co-Operation partner in conjunction with the offers and services of this partner.
B.2.6 Free2Move can block the Customer's Free2Move Account and Free2Move User Name
a) if the Customer has entered incorrect information; or
b) if communication via contact information in the Customer's Free2Move Account was unsuccessful (e.g., e-mail address or mobile number is outdated); or
c) if the Customer breaches these Terms and Conditions of Use, unless the breach is minor, or was due to reasons outside the Customer's control; or
d) if there is legitimate reason to believe that the Customer will not comply with these Terms and Conditions of Use.
B.2.7 A Customer can cancel his/her Free2Move Account at any time on written notice to Free2Move via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Free2Move can cancel the Free2Move Account at any time by giving two written weeks' notice to the Customer. Termination of a Free2Move Account will not affect any existing Mobility Agreements or previous use of the Free2Move User Name or their performance. Termination of a Mobility Agreement will be subject to the terms and conditions of the relevant Mobility Agreement. The right to terminate without notice for cause remains unaffected.
B.2.8 Some Providers require the Customer to verify their identitiy and that they hold a valid driver's licence ("Validation") in order to allow that Customer to book the Provider’s mobility services (when those mobility services involve using a vehicle). To meet this requirement, Free2Move may offer the Customer a Validation service in exchange for the payment of a fee or free of charge, using digital or other vehicles to do so. Customers are free to make use of this Validation or to refrain from ordering such services via Free2Move.
In the event Free2Move provides this Validation service, the Customer must provide full and accurate information about his/her driver's licence (including, but not limited to, name, date of issue, issuing agency and driver's licence number) and must immediately notify Free2Move in the event that the information given to Free2Move changes.
In addition, the Customer must present his/her driver's licence as well as suitable ID documents to a validation office authorized by Free2Move („office“ may be replaced by a digital method). This validation may be outsourced by Free2Move to a third party which validates the user’s documents in Free2Move’s name. Successful Validation will be noted in the Customer's Free2Move Account.
Free2Move reserves the right to request that the Customer verifies that he/she holds a valid driving licence at any time. Free2Move also reserves the right to refrain from forwarding the Customer's reservation requests for a vehicle to relevant Providers if it has legitimate reason to believe that the Customer will not comply with the terms of the Mobility Services Agreement.
