2. LEGAL FRAMEWORK

2.1. Bolt App enables the Client to order delivery of Cargo to the Recipient at Drop-Off Location by selecting “Delivery” category in Bolt App. “Delivery” category is available in case of Bolt in-App Payment. The Client acknowledges that delivery of Cargo is not a door-to-door delivery and the Recipient must be informed in advance by the Client about the requirement to pick up the Cargo from the Driver’s vehicle. The Driver is not responsible for loading and unloading of the Cargo.

2.2. For the delivery of Cargo, the Client enters into a Delivery Agreement directly with the Driver. The Delivery Agreement is deemed to be concluded from the moment that the order for delivery of a Cargo is confirmed by the Driver via Bolt App. Drivers who do not wish to use Bolt App for delivery of Cargo can opt out from such deliveries by notifying Bolt respectively.

2.3. By operating the Bolt App, Bolt acts only as a provider of the information society service and is not a party to the Delivery Agreement. Bolt is not the provider of the delivery services, and is not liable in any way for the performance under the Delivery Agreement. Bolt does not supervise, direct or control the manner in which the delivery of Cargo is carried out by the Driver.

2.9. The Driver is solely liable for the performance of the Delivery Agreement and for any claims presented under the Delivery Agreement. Bolt is not liable for any failure or non-conformity of performing the Delivery Agreement and assumes no liability for any traffic violations or accidents sustained during the performance of the Delivery Agreement.

2.10. If the Client files a claim due to the breach of the Delivery Agreement, the Driver shall release Bolt from all liability regarding the claim.

2.11. The Driver's total liability for material damage or consequential loss, such as loss, theft, material damage, average or destruction of the items of the Cargo shall be the greater of (i) the original value of the affected items of the Cargo; or (ii) the amount of their repair or reconstitution, in both cases up to the limit of equivalent of 400 AZN.

2.12. Bolt App is provided to the Users strictly on an "as is" basis. Bolt will not be liable for any interruptions, connection errors, unavailability of, or faults in the Platform. In no event shall Bolt's aggregate liability for any and all claims arising out of the use of Bolt App by the same User, including those based on tort, agreement or other grounds, exceed equivalent of 1000 AZN or the amount of the fees paid to Bolt, whichever is lower.
