Liability, limitation of liability, and indemnity

Interruptions and errors

Your use of the Website may be partially or fully interrupted or terminated at AQi’s sole discretion. At any given time, the Website and its content may contain errors and omissions or inaccurate, incomplete, or outdated information. We will attempt to correct any errors as soon as possible and make reasonable efforts to inform any users who may be affected. This may mean that incomplete reservations may be cancelled. Furthermore, the Website may occasionally be unavailable due to scheduled maintenance, updates, hardware or software crashes, repairs, power outages, hacks, DDoS attacks, unanticipated surges in use, or any other reason.

Exclusion/limitation of liability and indemnity

You are using the Website at your own risk. The Website is provided on an “as-is” and “as-available” basis, without any implicit or explicit claim or guarantee of any kind, including, without limitation, implicit claims or guarantees about accuracy, accessibility, availability, completeness, durability, errors, suitability for a given purpose, absence of negligence, merchantability, performance, protection of personal information, quality, results, security, service, timeliness, title of ownership, or lack of viruses. These guarantees are therefore waived by you and AQi to the maximum extent permitted by law. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing or any provision in these TOU, AQi shall not be held liable for any total or partial errors, inaccuracies, and/or unavailability of any price, advertising content, promotional offer, schedule or other flight information, waiting time, travel time, or any product and/or service offered at or associated with the airport (including airport parking and its prepayment system) that is associated with the Website.

Liability disclaimer

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing and notwithstanding any other provision of this contract between AQi and you, AQi and its administrators, directors, employees, agents, service providers, or anyone else for whom AQi is legally responsible (hereinafter “AQi parties,” collectively) shall not be held liable towards you or any other party for any indirect, incidental, special, or punitive damages or losses resulting from or related to the Website or the Contract. This includes the anticipated or unanticipated loss of data, business, markets, savings, revenue, profits, use, production, reputation, or goodwill, as well as any economic loss, under any theory of liability (whether it be contractual, extra-contractual, strict, or defined by any other law, theory, or equity), even if AQi has been informed of the potential for such loss or damage to occur.

Indemnity

You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless the AQi parties from and against any and all liability, fees, and costs, including attorney fees and reasonable legal expenses, arising from any claim, action, or proceeding associated with your violation of the Contract, the inaccuracy of any of your claims or guarantees, or any wrongdoing by you or any person for whom you are responsible under the Contract or by law. You agree to cooperate as fully as reasonably required by AQi in the defense of any claim, action, or proceeding.

Termination

AQi may, at its sole discretion, change, delete, modify, restrict, suspend, or close the Website or any part thereof without notice or liability towards you or any other party. AQi may also, at its sole discretion and for its own convenience, terminate the Contract or withdraw your permission to access and use the Website without prior notice or liability towards you or any other party.

If the Contract is terminated or your permission to access or use all or part of the Website is withdrawn for any reason whatsoever, the Contract and all other agreements between you and AQi shall continue to apply and you shall be bound to them. The sections of this contract entitled “Content,” “Liability, limitation of liability, and indemnity,” and “Laws and jurisdiction,” as well as any other provisions needed to interpret and apply those sections, shall survive termination of the Contract and remain fully effective indefinitely.

General

Should any provision of the Contract be found invalid or unenforceable for any reason, that provision shall be considered separate from the Contract. The remaining provisions shall continue to be valid, unaltered, and in full force and effect.

You agree that the Contract constitutes a whole, entire, and exclusive agreement between you and AQi regarding the Website. It terminates and replaces any prior agreements and contracts, made verbally or in writing, regarding the subject of the Contract. You may also need to comply with further conditions that may apply following the purchase or use of certain products or services associated with the Website or third-party content or software.

The Contract and its contents shall benefit and bind all of AQi’s successors and assigns, as well as your heirs, executors, administrators, successors, and authorized assigns.

You cannot assign the Contract or any of the resulting rights and obligations. AQi may assign the Contract and the resulting rights and obligations without your consent. This contract contains provisions that benefit AQi parties, all of which have the right to claim and execute those provisions directly and on their own behalf.

Should either party fail to take action regarding the other party’s, or other people’s, breach of the Contract, that failure shall not be considered a waiver of their right to take action regarding that breach or similar, future, or other breaches. Waivers of such rights must be express, written, and duly signed by both parties in order to be considered valid and enforceable.

SPECIFIC TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR PARKING PREPAYMENT AND PURCHASE OF VIP LOUNGE PASSES

BY ACCESSING THE TRANSACTION PLATFORM OR USING THE SERVICE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTOOD, AND AGREED TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF USE FOR THE TRANSACTION PLATFORM.

Eligibility

The service and the transaction platform are only accessible to users who have the legal ability to enter into binding contracts under the applicable laws. By using the service or the transaction platform, you declare and guarantee that you are 16 years of age or older and that you are fully capable of accepting and complying with the general conditions of these terms of use.

Availability and prices

Reservations are provided on a first-come, first-served basis and are subject to availability. Your card shall be debited as soon as you submit your prepayment or your online reservation. If your trip extends beyond the date and times of your transaction, you will be charged for the additional hours or days that were not paid for during the online transaction. If your trip is shorter than the prepaid duration, NO REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN for the unused portion of the transaction. Furthermore, once you have prepaid for parking or purchased a VIP Lounge pass online, the rate is set. For that reason, the online transaction cannot be combined with any other coupons, special offers, or other promotions when you use the service.

Cancellation, change, and refund policy

No refunds shall be given for unused and uncancelled service, as stated in these terms of use. If you wish to change or cancel your parking prepayment or VIP Lounge pass purchase, you must use your username and password to sign in to the transaction platform at least 2 hours before the date and time of your prepayment. You can also access transactions by using the email address and the transaction ID in your confirmation email. If you cancel your parking prepayment or VIP Lounge pass at least 2 hours before the date and time of your prepayment, your purchase will be reimbursed in full to the card used to make the transaction. If your trip is shorter than the reserved duration, NO REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN for the unused portion of your reservation.

Server logs

The transaction platform is operated by a third party, Chauntry Parkspace Web Services (“Chauntry”). When you register and create an account on the AQi transaction platform, Chauntry collects and stores your information, such as your street address, email address, credit card number, cardholder name, credit card expiration date, first and last name, cell phone number, and license plate number. If you make an online transaction as a guest, the same information is stored, except for your credit card number. AQi does not have direct access to your credit card information.

Like most online servers, our servers may collect and store any information sent by your browser when it requests a webpage, including:

  • The name, domain, and digital address of the “host” computer (generally a computer belonging to your Internet service provider, not your personal computer) through which you are accessing the Internet;
  • The date and time you accessed the Website;
  • The address of the webpage from which you came;
  • The page you requested and the amount of data sent to your computer; and
  • The information that your browser sends us, which generally identifies the browser software, but may also identify your computer’s operating system and CPU type.

Individual users cannot be identified from this information. We create summary reports, or logs, from this information. These logs are analyzed regularly to evaluate use of the Website over time and carry out studies to improve the organization, performance, and usefulness of the Website. The raw data used to create these logs is regularly erased as part of routine system maintenance.

Email

When you send AQi personally identifiable information by email, AQi will use that information to respond to your request. AQi may share your email with other AQi employees or contractors who are better able to respond to your request. The email itself may also be stored.

Automated license plate recognition system

AQi uses automated license plate recognition (ALPR) systems, which scan, digitize, store, and create automatic reports on vehicles’ license plates.
