This document sets out the terms and conditions of use (“the Terms”) according to which you may use mTransport services (“the Service”) offred by mPhase including the web site https://portail.mtransport.ca (Web site) and mTransport Parent mobile application (“Application”).
Parents of students using school transportation (“Parents”) et authorized guardians (”Guardians”) form all the users of the Service (“Users”, “You, “Your”).
These Terms constitute a binding agreement (“the Agreement”) between you and mPhase. The use of the Service is based on your acceptance and respect of those Conditions. If you do not agree with these Terms, you may not install or use the Service.
Service et Usage License
mTransport Parent is an online service that allows parents to track their kids in school transportation via a free mobile app or the portaIl.mtransport.ca website. The service is available to parents whose children are traveling on school transportation offered by a school board (or institution) using mTransport, and on routes whose school vehicles are equipped with a mobile device with the mTransport Driver application. By registering other contacts in their child’s school record, parents can delegate to guardians permission to use the Service.
The Service offers users the following features:
– Receive notifications or emails in the following cases: the school vehicle is en route to the child’s stop, the child rides in the vehicle, the child is not present at his stop, the child gets off the vehicle, the child stays in the vehicle at his stop.
Inform school transportation from the absence of the child at a later date.
– View the history of child movements recorded by mTransport.
– View relevant information (school contact information, school calendar, etc.).
– Set notification preferences.
These Terms are concluded on the date the User accepts them and will remain in effect until terminated by either party, all in accordance herewith.
To be able to create an account in mTransport, your email address must be entered in the child’s file in the school board’s records. If you are a parent with parental authority, please contact your child’s school board to include an email address in his file.
You are responsible for backing up the password you use to access the Service and for all activities or actions under your password.
You warrant that you will not divulge your password to anyone else and that you will advise Us, as soon as possible, if you become aware, or suspect for any reason, that the security of your account has been compromised
In consideration of you agreeing to abide by these Terms, We hereby grant you a non-transferable, non-exclusive, non-sub licensable, revocable license to access and use the Service. This license is subject to you complying with these Terms.
Limitation of Liability
While mPhase will take such steps as are reasonable in the circumstances to maintain the security of this Service and of your privacy and confidentiality with respect to information you provide, you agree that your use of this Service is entirely at your own risk. To the maximum extent permitted by law, We do not accept any liability for (a) any inaccuracies or omissions in the content displayed on or via the Web Site or the Application and for (b) any direct, indirect, special, punitive, exemplary of consequential losses or damages of whatsoever kind, including damages to device, arising out of your access or use of the Web site or the Application. In any case, should a court hold mPhase liable for such damages, mPhase shall not be liable for an amount greater than $250 CAD.
Accuracy of Information
The quality and accuracy of the information transmitted by the Service is directly dependent on the quality of use of the mTransport Driver application. mPhase can not be held responsible for any inaccuracies or errors in the transmitted data resulting from human error when entering the data (manipulation by the driver or the children transported).
However, in collaboration with school boards, mPhase encourages and assists drivers in their use of the mTransport Driver application.
To reduce the risk of errors, we advise you to check that your child is still following the transport instructions of your institution, for the respect of hours, stops, and ways to proceed with on board registration.
mPhase regularly updates the service to improve performance and add features. It is recommended to use the most up-to-date version of the application at all times to minimize the risk of error and to fully benefit from it.
Access to Data
The school board or institution using the mTransport service controls access to information about passengers. For a parent to access their children’s data, the institution must allow this by sharing the email addresses of the authorized parents with mPhase.
The institution may revoke this access at any time. It can also prevent notifications for certain trips, for example in the case of a substitute driver who is unfamiliar with the route.
The speed at which notifications and emails are received depends on several factors including:
– The telecom coverage at the moment the Driver application tries to send the data
– The number of data transmitted simultaneously and the performance of the hosting servers of the solution
– The delivery times of Apple and Google, who are responsible for relaying information to the phone, via an Internet connection.
– The availability and quality of the Internet connection of the device with the Application or used to consult the Web site.
mTransport is the exclusive property of mPhase, and all content of the Service (text, images, graphics, code) is protected by copyright, trademarks, database and other intellectual property rights.
