1. Legal information and Scope of Application
1.1 Legal Information
The “QTH Driver” application (hereinafter the “Application“) and the “qthdriver.com” and “shop.qthdriver.com” websites (hereinafter the “Sites“) belong to and are operated by SAW, a simplified joint-stock company with a capital of €10,000, having its registered office at 10, rue Jean Mermoz – ZA La Ferrière – 79300 BRESSUIRE, registered with the Trade and Companies Register in Niort under number 892771338.
1.2 Scope of Application
These general terms and conditions of use and sale (the “Terms“) apply to any user (“You” or “the User”) of the Application and the Sites.
The purpose of these Terms is to define the terms and conditions for the provision of the Application and the Sites as well as their Services and conditions of use.
The use of the Application or the Sites as well as, where applicable, the acquisition of Software and/or Embedded Hardware and/or related Services (hereinafter “Products and Services“) requires the acceptance by the Client of the Conditions. Any access to and/or use of the Application and the Sites implies acceptance of and compliance with all the Terms. Read the Terms carefully before using the Application and the Sites or their Services. If You do not agree with any of the provisions of these Terms, do not use the Application and the Sites. In order to use some of the Services on the App and the Sites, we may require you to agree to additional terms.
In these Conditions, unless otherwise specified, the following words and phrases shall have the respective meanings set out below:
Data: refers to the Customer’s computer data, personal or otherwise, collected when using the Software Package.
Personal data: any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.
Data subject: refers to the natural person whose Personal Data is collected, in particular the Customer or the User.

These definitions are capitalized and apply to both the singular and plural.
- System requirements
The use of the Application or the Sites and its Services requires a mobile internet service for portable devices. These connections are not provided by SAW, so the user must first individually subscribe to a mobile internet offer in order to use the Application or the Sites and their Services. A fourth generation (4G) mobile internet connection is strongly recommended.
As a User, you can activate the Service from a compatible mobile device (compatible hardware, operating system, browser). The Service is only accessible by one connection at a time. SAW has the technical means to check the number of simultaneous connections on the same account and therefore to detect multiple connection attempts. To enjoy the App or Sites and their Services via your smartphone or other device, your device must meet certain system requirements. These requirements can be found on the App stores.
- Access and use
3.1 Downloading the Application
The Application is available for free download from the Google Play Store and the Apple Store.
3.2. Technical requirements
To use the card reader functionality, the mobile device must be USB-OTG compatible. The user of an Android mobile device must also connect a USB-C or micro-USB card reader. The user of an Apple mobile device must also connect a Lightning type card reader.
It is the User’s responsibility to ensure that the hardware used complies with the requirements indicated above. SAW cannot be held responsible for any malfunction of the Application or the Sites if this is the result of a defective reader or one that is not compatible with the mobile device.
3.3. Use Without Registration
The Application is accessible after downloading from an App store without registration. The User can therefore access a free service of map reading and data visualization without backup.
3.4. Creating an Account
In order to access the additional Services of the Application or the Sites and to take out the corresponding subscriptions (as described below), you must first create an account via the relevant section of the Application by filling in the registration form in which you will provide, according to the indications requested online and in the fields provided for this purpose the information required for your registration to be taken into account, namely a valid e-mail address, by choosing a password and then validating your registration, or alternatively by using your personal Facebook or Gmail account or your personal telephone number, and by accepting these Conditions beforehand.
If you forget your password, there is a function to reset it on the Application.
Each user may create only one account. If we deactivate your account, you will not attempt to create a new one without our permission.
3.5. Login and Password
The username and password you chose when you created your account are unique, personal and confidential.
You undertake to keep your username and password secret and not to disclose them in any form whatsoever. The storage, use and transmission of your username and password are your sole responsibility. In particular, you are aware of the inherent insecurity of using the automatic storage function of the connection data that your computer system, the Application or the Sites may allow, and declare that you assume full responsibility for the use and possible consequences of such a function.
Any use of your login and password will be presumed to have been made or duly authorised by you.
Therefore, we shall not be liable for any adverse consequences resulting from the illicit, fraudulent or abusive use of your login and password and access to the Application or the Sites by a third party not expressly authorised by you, which would result from your fault or negligence.
In the event of theft or misappropriation of your login and password, it is your responsibility to notify us immediately by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt.
If you are unable to connect with your login and password, you can notify us by e-mail: email@example.com.
You may not transfer your account to anyone else and you will not impersonate or attempt to impersonate anyone else.
Once your account is created, you become a member of the Application and Sites community, which gives you access to certain features that are not available to non-members. You may also agree to receive emails relating to occasional special offers, marketing communications, communications relating to your user lifecycle and technical or quality of service messages from our platform. You can easily unsubscribe from these emails by following the opt-out instructions in these emails. Memberships and subscriptions to our Services are not transferable and therefore cannot be sold or exchanged or transferred in any way. The Services you can access as a member include the following:
- a) Internal Backup = Local Storage of Card Readings
The Application offers to any User who has previously created an account a service of internal data backup in the User’s mobile device. Data from card readings as well as personal documents can be stored in the mobile device depending on the storage capacity of the latter. The backups are encrypted and can only be read from the Application.
- b) The “Grand Driver” offer
Any member may also access a premium subscription service that provides access to a limited capacity backup of drive time representations from the playback of legal files in the Cloud. You can become a Subscriber by purchasing a subscription to the Services in the App or on the Sites.
SAW offers 2 types of subscription:
- A monthly subscription, at a price of €1.99 including VAT, renewable by tacit agreement for an identical period unless cancelled in accordance with the terms of these Conditions.
- A Premium subscription, at a price of €19.99 including VAT, renewable by tacit agreement for an identical period unless terminated in accordance with the terms of these Conditions, payable in a single payment when the subscription is taken out.
For the purposes of our monthly subscriptions, a month is 30 calendar days, a year is 365 days.
In order to subscribe to the above-mentioned subscription, the user must fill in the mandatory fields of the form accessible on the Application or the Sites, accept the present Terms and Conditions and validate his/her order by clicking on the “CONFIRM MY ORDER” button. The user will then receive confirmation of his order by email.
Our obligation to provide you with this premium service does not commence until we have received confirmation of payment for your order and we have confirmed your purchase by email. Please quote the order number in any further correspondence with us.
Prices in euros are inclusive of VAT, unless otherwise stated.
We may at any time and from time to time, in our sole discretion, change the amounts of subscriptions, fees and charges, or add new subscriptions, fees and charges in connection with any of our Services. We will notify you by email at least 30 (thirty) calendar days prior to any change. If you do not agree to the change, you may terminate your subscription in your account settings.
- c) Contact with the Employer
The Application allows the User to transmit card data to his employer. This service is conditional on the user company taking out a specific SAW subscription. The User must accept the connection through a link provided by the user company.
By creating an account on the Application and using the Services, you represent, warrant and covenant that:
- The information you provide is personal to you, is accurate and you do not use the personal information of others without permission,
- You are legally capable of entering into legal commitments;
- You are at least 16 years of age and if under the age of 18 (or the age of majority under the law applicable to you), you are creating your account and engaging under the direction, supervision and consent of your legal representatives;
- Your personal information will be updated as necessary.
4.1. Means of Payment
Several payment methods are offered on the Application or the Sites. It is specified that when the User provides SAW with his/her bank details, these are not kept by SAW.
In order to optimise the security of transactions, SAW has chosen the payment systems of the company STRIPE. The guarantees given by SAW with regard to the security of transactions are identical to those obtained by SAW from the publishers of the above-mentioned payment systems.
In the absence of elements to the contrary provided by the User, the computerised registers, kept in the computer systems of SAW and its partners under reasonable security conditions, will be considered as proof of the communications, orders, validations and payments made between the User and SAW.
4.2 Terms of Payment
- a) Monthly subscription: The first payment will be made in advance when the subscription is taken out and will be recurrent monthly on each anniversary date of the subscription, by direct debit on the chosen method of payment until the subscription is terminated, whether the termination is at your initiative or that of SAW.
The first payment will cover the period of the current month and the month following the subscription date. Thus, SAW allows the subscriber to benefit from free Services for the first month of use.
- b) Annual subscription: The first payment will be made in advance when the subscription is taken out and then on each anniversary date of the subscription, by direct debit on the chosen method of payment until the subscription is terminated, whether the termination is at your initiative or that of SAW. The first payment will cover the period of the current month and the 12 months following the subscription date. Thus, SAW allows the subscriber to benefit from free Services for the first month of use.
No partial refund (corresponding to part of the period) will be accepted in the event of unilateral termination without reason during the period.
In general, payments may not be delayed for any reason.
4.3. Authorisation to Take Samples
You authorise SAW and the relevant payment provider to debit the same payment method used for the initial subscription on applicable subscription renewals. In the event of a tacit renewal, the rate in force at the time of the renewal for the subscription concerned will be fully applicable. You agree to promptly notify SAW of any change in the method of payment you have provided, as all subscriptions will be suspended pending such notification. You are responsible for all applicable fees, if any, including applicable taxes, and for all subscriptions you have purchased. In the event that we are unable to collect the amount of your subscription on the agreed due date, you will still be liable to us for previous instalments, and we reserve all rights and remedies in this regard.
4.4. Late Payment
In the event of non-payment, caused by a failure to collect the amount of the subscription on the agreed due date, SAW will inform you immediately and reserves the right to suspend your Subscription until all amounts due have been paid.
- Complaints, Cancellation and Right of Withdrawal
You can submit your complaints directly in the Application or on the Sites via the appropriate menu.
5.2. Termination by You
You can terminate the Contract at any time and without justification, through a feature available in your Customer Area.
The termination of the contract will be effective on the anniversary date of your Subscription following your termination request. In this respect, direct debits will be stopped as of your cancellation request.
5.3. Termination by Us
If you fail to comply with any of your obligations under these TCU, SAW may terminate the Agreement within thirty (30) days of becoming aware of the breach and sending you a registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt informing you of the forthcoming termination. You will also be informed through your Client Area.
5.4. Right of Withdrawal
If you have purchased a subscription, you have the right of withdrawal specified below from the conclusion of the contract.
You can exercise your right of withdrawal for 14 days, without having to give reasons. This 14-day withdrawal period runs from the conclusion of the contract.
To exercise your right of withdrawal, you must send us a registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt, together with your bank details, to the following postal address:
SAW – Rétractation Driver 10 rue Jean Mermoz 79300 BRESSUIRE
An unambiguous statement expressing your wish to withdraw from the contract. You can use the withdrawal form (Annex 1). However, this is not compulsory.
In order to comply with the withdrawal period, it is sufficient to send us the declaration of withdrawal before the expiration of the withdrawal period.
If you exercise your right of withdrawal, we shall be obliged to refund all sums already paid by you promptly and at the latest within 14 days of the date on which we were informed of your decision to withdraw. We will use the same method of payment for this refund as you used for the original transaction, unless you give your express consent for us to use another method of payment and provided that the refund does not incur any costs for us.
You will not have to pay any penalties.
