Lyft, Inc. ("Lyft") has designed and developed a Lyft Beta Program ("Lyft Beta Program") to, among other things, allow a limited number of people to download test versions of Lyft applications for mobile devices (the “Experimental Software”), such as the Lyft for Android or Lyft for iOS applications, and to provide feedback and comments to Lyft regarding use of such applications. By joining the Lyft Beta Program, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions set forth below (the "Agreement").
1. Your Feedback By enrolling in the Lyft Beta Program you will have the ability to: (a) download, test, evaluate and analyze the Experimental Software (b) and provide feedback, analysis, suggestions and comments to Lyft (including, but not limited to, bug reports and test results) (collectively, “Feedback”).
By participating in the Lyft Beta Program, you agree that any Feedback you provide will become the property of Lyft and you agree that Lyft may use or otherwise exploit all or part of your feedback or any derivative thereof in any manner or media now known without any further remuneration, compensation or credit to you. You represent and warrant that you have right to enter into this Agreement and assign and grant the rights set forth herein, and that any Feedback which is provided by you hereunder is original work made solely by you and does not infringe any third party intellectual property rights.
2. Confidentiality Confidential Information. The Lyft Beta Program is designed to assist Lyft in researching, analyzing and validating the usability and reliability of certain prospective product features (collectively, the “Purpose”). Lyft may disclose to you certain information (tangible or intangible) that you agree to treat as Confidential Information as set forth below. Definition. “Confidential Information” means all information disclosed by Lyft, including, without limitation, documents, designs, techniques, specifications, product plans, strategic information, existing or prospective business plans, existing or prospective product study or pilot test objectives and/or results, and other information related to the Purpose. Consistent with the foregoing, Lyft may also disclose Confidential Information related to certain unreleased and experimental product features or plans.
Obligations Regarding Confidential Information. You agree to: (a) use Confidential Information only for the Purpose; (b) not disclose Confidential Information to any third parties (including the sharing of unreleased/experimental product images); and (c) use the same degree of care, but no less than a reasonable degree of care (including reasonable security measures), to prevent the unauthorized use, dissemination or publication of Confidential Information as you would use to protect your own confidential information of like nature.
Remedies. You agree that any breach of this Agreement by you may result in irreparable harm to Lyft, for which damages would be an inadequate remedy and therefore, in addition to its rights and remedies otherwise available at law, Lyft shall be entitled to seek equitable relief, including injunction, in the event of such breach.
3. No Compensation or Employment You acknowledge that you are participating in the Lyft Beta Program on a purely voluntary basis, as a means of assisting, and in consideration of the opportunity to assist Lyft to use, implement, and understand various facets of the Experimental Software. Lyft, at its sole discretion, may provide you compensation for your participation and/or Feedback but you acknowledge and agree that Lyft has no obligation to do so. In the event Lyft provides you any form of compensation, which such shall not exceed $200 USD, you represent and warrant that you will pay all applicable federal, state and local taxes based on any payments received by you. Lyft makes no guarantee or representation as to whether or not your Feedback regarding the Experimental Software will be used, and you understand and acknowledge that Lyft will not compensate you for your participation in the Lyft Beta Program. Furthermore, you acknowledge and agree that nothing in this Agreement or in your voluntary submission of Feedback creates any employment relationship between you and Lyft.
4. Lyft may, in its sole discretion, at any time, terminate or discontinue the Lyft Beta Program, discontinue your participation in the Lyft Beta Program, or remove your Feedback. You acknowledge and agree that all such decisions by Lyft are final and Lyft will have no liability with respect to such decisions.
5. Notices Unless otherwise set forth in this Agreement, Lyft may give general notices to you by posting on any Lyft web site (e.g., lyft.com) and, where possible, by electronic mail to your email address.

THE LYFT BETA PROGRAM IS AVAILABLE ON AN "AS IS" BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. LYFT EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ON ITS OWN BEHALF AND ON BEHALF OF ITS EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, ATTORNEYS, CONSULTANTS, OR CONTRACTORS ANY AND ALL WARRANTIES INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION (i) ANY WARRANTY OR REPRESENTATION WHATSOEVER REGARDING THE OPERATION OF THE LYFT BETA PROGRAM, THE AVAILABILITY, ACCURACY OR CONTENT OF ANY INFORMATION, SERVICES, OR PRODUCTS PROVIDED OR AVAILABLE THROUGH OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE LYFT BETA PROGRAM, THE EXPERIMENTAL SOFTWARE, LYFT, AND/OR THE LYFT WEB SITE OR ANY RESULTS OBTAINED THROUGH THE USE THEREOF, AND (ii) THE WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF NONINFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY, AND FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
