Please read the following terms of use carefully before using this webSite/App or other services that we provide. By accessing or using our website/app or our services you agree to these terms of use. 

These terms of use (“Terms of Use”), together with our Privacy Policy and any additional terms which might apply to certain products or services offered, from time to time, by or through our website/app (www.CarBlip.com) (“Site/App”), govern your use of the Site/App and any services provided or made available through the Site/App, including, without limitation, a platform for submitting a non-binding offer to buy, finance or lease a vehicle, delivering search results for products and services offered by third-parties, price comparison, reviews, tracking of your offer to dealers or other services (collectively, the “Service”).

We may, from time to time, modify or amend these Terms of Use pursuant to the terms set forth herein. Any revised version of the Terms of Use will be posted on the Site/App and the revised Terms of Use will govern your future use of our Site/App and Service, so you should return to our Site/App periodically to review these Terms of Use. If you do not agree to the revised version, you must immediately stop using our Site/App and Service.

1. Access or Use of Our Site/App and/or Service

To access or use some content or features of our Site/App or Service, you may choose to provide us certain information, we may require you to provide certain information, or require that you establish an account with us through registration.

  2. Whenever you submit information to us, you agree to provide true, accurate and complete information and agree to, if the option is available, promptly update the information if there have been changes to the information you provided.
  3. Accounts. We may also impose restrictions on your ability to establish an account (e.g., age limits, restrict business entities from setting up accounts, limitations on the number of accounts, etc.). When registering an account, you may need to select a username (“ID”) and password. You are responsible for keeping your ID and password, and other account information, confidential and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your account, whether or not you authorized such activities. You agree to notify us immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your account or ID and password by contacting us via our contact us form.

We may do so based on changes to our business practices (e.g., eliminating a Service, etc.), if you violate the letter and spirit of these Terms of Use, or for any other lawful reason. You agree that we are not liable to you or any third party for any such action.
  2. Any limitation, suspension or termination we may impose shall not alter your obligations to us under these Terms of Use.
