The Share-a-Lift Employee Car Share Scheme (the "Scheme") provides a journey sharing information service enabling staff to make contact with each other for the purpose of sharing car, cycling, public transport, taxi or walking journeys.
The service is facilitated through an externally hosted website and database (the "Website"), developed for Staffordshire County Council, Stoke-on-Trent City Council and partner organisations by Jambusters Ltd (collectively "We", "Us", "Our"). The Website is accessed at http://share-a-lift.co.uk.
Your agreement to comply with, and be bound by these Conditions, is deemed to occur upon your first use of the Website.
