  1. Missions
    i. On the Portal, Pilots can access requests for Drone Services submitted by Clients. We refer to these job requests as missions (ixMissions).
    ii. We provide the Portal to:

    iii. Amongst other services, the Portal includes a marketplace function where:
          A. Clients wanting a Mission to be carried out by a Pilot may submit a request for a Mission, which includes details of the Mission (Mission Request).

    xii. The Mission Fee depends on the requirements in the Mission Summary. Factors affecting the Mission Fee may include the complexity of regulatory requirements, flight location, flight time, equipment used (including the type of drone) and expertise of the Pilot required to capture certain types of Data.
    xiii. The Pilot agrees to use its best endeavours to capture the best possible data, which include any information that is captured by a drone whilst in operation as outlined in the Accepted Mission.
    xiv. The Client acknowledges and agrees that there are conditions outside of the Pilot's reasonable control that can affect the quality of the data captured, including shadows, activity on-site, specific on-site shot direction/requests, haze, sun glare, and Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) imposed restrictions.
    xv. Unless otherwise agreed, reasonable notice is required for all cancellations or rescheduling of Missions by the Client and the Pilot. Cancelation, termination and rescheduling fees may apply.
    xvi. If the Pilot is not able to carry out the Mission due to inclement weather (including rain or strong winds) or safety concerns from the Pilot's assessments of the site (acting reasonably), the Pilot may reschedule the Mission, without penalty, by providing notice to the Client and us via the Portal. Rescheduling or additional fees may apply to the Client.
    xvii. The Client and the Pilot agree to use their best endeavours to reschedule any Mission.

    vii. We guarantee payment to the Pilots only for such amounts that we have successfully received from Clients in accordance with the Terms. In accepting appointment as the limited payment collection agent of the Pilot, we assume no liability for acts or omissions of the Pilot. The Pilot agrees that we may credit Clients in accordance with the Terms.
    viii. In the event that we do not remit Mission Fees to the Pilot as set out in the Terms, and we have received the Mission Fees from the Client, the Pilot will only have recourse against us and not the Client directly.
    ix. All Mission Fees exclude GST. You are responsible for all taxes, levies or duties imposed by taxing authorities in Australia and in your own country (if not Australia), and you shall be responsible for payment of them. We have no responsibility to them on your behalf.

Section 5.1 a) talks about how Drone Services work on the Portal:

  • Clients (people or groups wanting drone services) can submit job requests called "missions."
  • Birdi provides the Portal to help Clients and Pilots complete these missions. This includes handling payments and disputes.
  • The Portal has a marketplace where Clients can request missions, and Pilots can accept or reject them.
  • Clients provide details like job location, data to be collected, and analytics needed.
  • After the mission request is done, Clients get a summary and price (Mission Fee).
  • Pilots are chosen by Birdi and can accept or reject missions. If accepted, they're legally bound to complete the mission.
  • Mission Fees depend on factors like regulatory requirements, location, time, and equipment.
  • Pilots try their best to capture good data, but some conditions like weather can affect quality.
  • Both Clients and Pilots should reschedule responsibly if needed.
  • After a mission, Pilots upload data on the Portal, which is then provided to the Client.
  • Completion happens when the Pilot finishes the mission and uploads the data.

Section 5.1 b) explains how payments for missions work:

  • After a mission is done, the Client pays the Mission Fee.
  • Once the mission is completed and payment is received from the Client, we pay the Pilot.
  • Payments are final and need accurate card info. You should have enough money in your account if you pay with a debit or credit card.
  • We're like a middleman for payment between Clients and Pilots. Payments to us count as payments to the Pilots.
  • We promise to pay Pilots only for the money we get from Clients according to the Terms.
  • If we don't pay Pilots when we're supposed to and we have the money from the Client, Pilots can only ask us for the money, not the Client.
  • Mission Fees don't include taxes. You have to take care of taxes that apply to you in your country. We won't deal with taxes for you.

    ii. are not compiled using a sample size small enough to make the underlying data identifiable.
  6. As between the parties, we own all right, title and interest in and to the Analytics and all related software, technology, documentation and Content (including intellectual property rights).
  7. Data processing: We currently use a third party for our data processing, called Agisoft Metashape
    i. Accuracy of data processing is determined by the quality of the data uploaded. We take no responsibility for the accuracy of this data.
  8. Accuracy and liability of Birdi Platform Reports:
    i. Accuracy of data processing is determined by the quality of the data uploaded. We take no responsibility for the accuracy of this data. 
    ii. We do not provide any warranty or make representations regarding the accuracy, reliability, timeliness, or other features of any data used in reports generated through the Birdi platform (including those provided by Third Parties) or the processes and equipment used by third parties in collecting such data. We disclaim all liability for any direct, indirect, or consequential loss arising from any inaccuracies or discrepancies in the data upon which the modelling and analysis are based.
    iii. Whilst Birdi has taken careful steps to ensure the accuracy of various reports; they are not certified as survey-grade reports. The accuracy level of all reports can be influenced by various factors including equipment (drone, camera, lens), drone altitude, number of photos captured, atmospheric conditions, and the accuracy of third-party software analytical tools used in processing reports. While Birdi and (its pilots network where used) exercise care in producing all reports, we disclaim any liability or responsibility for any loss incurred by anyone relying on the information contained within. Reports are provided “as is” without any guarantee, representation, condition, or warranty of any kind, either express, implied, or statutory. Birdi assumes no liability concerning any reliance placed on any report. If you choose to rely on the report, you assume all risks regarding the truth, accuracy, currency, or completeness of the information it contains.

This section explains how data and reports are handled:

  • You give Birdi a license to use the information, documents, and other data you provide or upload. This includes the data from missions and any intellectual property rights in that data.
  • Birdi can use this data to provide services, improve their offerings, and create new services.
  • If you have any moral rights in your data, you allow Birdi to use it even if that means infringing on those rights.
  • You promise that the data you provide is legal and doesn't break any laws or privacy rules. You also agree that Birdi isn't responsible for your data, and you are.
  • Birdi can collect and use statistical and performance info based on how you use their services (Analytics), but this info won't identify you personally.
  • Birdi owns the rights to these Analytics.
  • Birdi does not guarantee report accuracy; it depends on input data quality and external factors. Birdi assumes no liability for losses resulting from potential inaccuracies in reports.
11. Security of information
Arrow icon
  1. No data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed as totally secure. Whilst we strive to protect such information, we do not warrant and cannot ensure the security of any information provided by you which you transmit to us. Accordingly, any information which you transmit to us is transmitted at your own risk.
  2. Nevertheless, once we receive your transmission, we will take reasonable steps to preserve the security of such information.

This part talks about the security of your information. While Birdi tries to protect your data, no internet transmission is completely secure. Even though Birdi will do their best to keep your data safe, any data you send to them is at your own risk. After Birdi receives your data, they will work to keep it secure using reasonable methods.

12. Termination
Arrow icon
  1. You may only terminate your Account by emailing us at support @birdi.io  No refunds will be given upon termination in accordance with this clause.
  2. We may, at any time and at our sole discretion, suspend or terminate your Account for any reason. You must ensure that all your Data on the SaaS Services is backed up so that you do not lose your Data if we suspend or terminate your Account. We will generally alert you when we take such action and give you a reasonable opportunity to remedy any breach of these Terms, but if we determine that your actions endanger the operation of the Services or other users, we may suspend or terminate your Account immediately without notice. You will continue to be charged for the Services during any suspension period in which you are in breach of these Terms. If we suspend your Account and you are not in breach of these Terms, we will apply a credit to your Account for the Fees you have paid for any unused portion of your Plan to which the period of suspension relates.  If we terminate your Account and you are not in breach of these Terms, we will refund you the Fees you have paid for any unused portion of your Plan. If we terminate your Account and you are in breach of these Terms, no refunds will be given.  
  3. We reserve the right to restrict, suspend or terminate without notice your access to our Platform, your Account, any Content, or any feature of our Platform at any time without notice and we will not be responsible for any loss, cost, damage or liability that may arise as a result.

  6. Your Plan will automatically renew at the end of the Plan period (and for the same Plan cycle) unless you terminate or change your Account prior to the renewal date.

This section explains the termination of your account and services:

  • You can terminate your account by emailing support@birdi.io. No refunds will be given if you terminate.
  • Birdi can suspend or terminate your account for various reasons at their sole discretion. If they do, it's a good idea to have your data backed up.

  • If they terminate your account because you've broken the terms, no refunds will be given.
  • Birdi can restrict, suspend, or terminate your access to the platform, account, content, or features at any time without notice. They're not responsible for any losses that result from this.

When these terms expire or your account is terminated:

  • Your access to the platform will be removed.
  • Birdi will stop providing platform services to you.
  • If you're a Pilot, ongoing missions will be cancelled, and you'll lose any fees paid.
  • If you're a Client, ongoing missions will be canceled, and you might get a refund.

    vii. where you are a Client, you are responsible for complying with all laws, rules and regulations which apply to requesting the services in your Mission Requests;
    viii. where you are a Pilot, you are appropriately qualified and insured, and have the required skills, knowledge or training, to carry out the Accepted Missions; and

  5. Certain legislation, including the Australian Consumer Law (ACL) and the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth), and similar consumer protection laws and regulations may confer you with rights, warranties, guarantees and remedies relating to our provision of our services which cannot be excluded, restricted or modified (Statutory Rights). 
  6. If the ACL applies to you as a consumer, nothing in the Terms excludes your Statutory Rights as a consumer under the ACL. You agree that our liability for the Services provided to an entity defined as a consumer under the ACL is governed solely by the ACL and the Terms.

This section explains some important promises you're making when using Birdi. You agree that you're at least 15 years old if you're an individual. You won't use Birdi's platforms in ways that compete with their business, and you won't try to get around their rules. You promise that there are no legal reasons stopping you from agreeing to these terms. The information you provide to Birdi is accurate, and you won't rely on any promises that Birdi didn't clearly state in these terms. If you're a Client, you're responsible for following the laws related to your mission requests. If you're a Pilot, you need proper qualifications, insurance, and skills to do the accepted missions. The Pilot also needs to follow aviation laws and drone regulations set by authorities. Certain laws might give you rights that can't be excluded, and Birdi respects these rights. The information on Birdi's platforms is not complete, and while they try to be accurate, they can't guarantee everything. If you have non-excludable rights, they will still apply.
