Drivers reserve the right to refuse delivery of any item. Drivers may refuse to collect an item in the event that delivery of the package may violate these Terms, or for other reasons, including but not limited to: the package could potentially cause damage to other packages, equipment, or the Driver; the package is likely to sustain damage or loss during transit; carriage of the package may be in violation of local, state, or federal laws; or acceptance of the package may place in jeopardy Driver’s ability to provide service to another Shipper.
Drivers are obligated to refuse delivery of any item that could reasonably be considered a Prohibited Item. The Driver assumes complete responsibility if the Driver undertakes the delivery of a Prohibited Item and Bringoz will not, in any way, be a party to such an arrangement. If a Driver refuses to accept an item due to size or weight or because it is a Prohibited Item or for any other reason that could be considered the fault of the Shipper, a Shipper cancellation fee will apply.
To use the Platform Services, the Shipper must provide all the required shipping details, as detailed on the Site, Web App and App, to create the delivery order. Shipper also agrees to follow the shipping instructions in these Terms, any supplemental terms, or any other applicable Bringoz policies.

Shipper will respect Drivers’ personal safety and understands that while performing the Delivery Tasks, drivers’ personal safety is of utmost importance; driver will perform the delivery tasks according to instructions from Shipper while taking into consideration the necessary conduct for personal safety.
The price of the delivery secured through the Platform Services is subject to change depending on a number of variables including urgency, traffic, size, distance, type of vehicle carrying the delivery, weather, and force majeure, all based on the company’s sole discretion.
In the event that the Shipper has entered incorrect details for the delivery (size of item, address for delivery, etc), Bringoz will calculate the difference, either according to the dynamic automatic pricing or at Bringoz’s sole discretion, and this amount will be added to the service fee quoted at the time of placing the delivery order.
In the event that the Delivery Task information was incorrect and the Driver is unable to take the parcel, due to inappropriate vehicle, lack of space in the vehicle, or any other reason, there will be a cancellation fee applied for the original, incorrect, order. A new order will need to be placed with the correct information and the appropriate service fee will apply.
Bringoz, and any service providers acting on Bringoz’s behalf, reserve the right to refuse to connect between Shipper and a Driver, to cancel a delivery or to condition a delivery upon presentation of certain permits and/or documentation, as well as to cancel a delivery already in process, at Bringoz’s sole discretion. In the event that the Shipper has been charged, the service fee will be refunded and this will be the sole compensation to Shipper for the cancellation of delivery.
Bringoz is not responsible for the condition of any delivery item and clarifies that the Driver will deliver the item as is, as received upon pick-up without Driver’s inspection of the item.
Driver will aim to deliver item/s within the requested timeframe and so long as doing so will not compromise driver’s safety nor the safety of the items being delivered.
Once your delivery has been completed, your Credit Card will be charged and you will be sent a receipt via email.

Driver agrees to abide by the decision of Bringoz with regard to whether Driver is responsible for any claimed damage or loss. Driver will promptly provide payment in any manner reasonably requested by Bringoz for damage or loss claims for which Driver is deemed responsible, including that Bringoz may compensate the Shipper directly and demand the payment from the Driver or deduct it from Driver’s deposit.
Items that may be requested for delivery which have a higher value than the physical item being delivered such as phone cards, tickets, gift cards, and similar items: Drivers’ liability for deliveries containing phone card(s), ticket(s) (such as event or airplane ticket), gift certificate(s), coupon(s), or other similar printed matter with an exchange value is limited to the cost of replacing the physical card(s), certificate(s), or printed matter. Drivers are not liable for the face value of any phone card, gift certificate, gift card, coupon or similar printed matter.
6.2. Packaging Requirements
Shipper will be responsible for ensuring all aspects of the item’s proper delivery, from the exact delivery details entered in the order through the packaging of the item. Shipper is responsible to pack the item as required, per the item’s specific criteria in order to ensure that the item is delivered wholly, to seal hermetically where necessary, to add padding, etc. Shipper must make sure that the item is packaged according to legal requirements where relevant and bears sole responsibility for the results of any deviation from the required packaging methods. In addition to the aforementioned, these are specific requirements that must be fulfilled when preparing an item for delivery:
The packaging MUST include the full name and address (Including apartment number, floor and suite) of the Shipper and the recipient, written clearly, with the words “From” and “To” emphasized.
Fragile items must be packaged carefully with shock-resistant padding and with the word FRAGILE clearly written on the outer package.
Packages that contain fruit and/or vegetables, especially soft, fresh fruit, should be packaged in hermetically sealed tin containers (not cartons). The words CAREFUL - FRUIT/VEGETABLES must be clearly written on the outer package.
Items that contain liquids, oils, and/or highly soluble materials must be packaged in a 100% hermetically sealed container. The packaging must be such that if the delivery item leaks, the liquid will be absorbed by material within the packaging. Such items must be packed in a double container. The internal container must be made of metal and the external container made of wood. The word LIQUIDS must be clearly written on the outer package.
For the avoidance of any doubt, the Shipper will be solely responsible for the proper packaging of the item and will be held responsible for any damage and/or loss caused by deviation from the requirements. The Driver will refuse any item which is not packaged according to requirements, or which is packaged in a way which endangers the Driver or the other items in his/her possession. The Shipper accepts responsibility for any additional charges that may be incurred due to the above, as well as any denial of receipt and the return of the item to the Shipper.
7. Optional Insurance
Shippers may be provided the option to purchase insurance from a third party for the item that they are shipping. This insurance is intended to compensate the Shipper only in the following events: significant damage done to the item, or loss or theft of the item from the Driver or by the Driver.
The insurance will be provided by a third party as designated by Bringoz and any purchase of insurance is an agreement between the Shipper and the third party provider and subject to terms provided by the third party provider.
8. Business Accounts
Certain types of business accounts (“Business Accounts”), as will be defined by Bringoz from time to time, will be bound to these Terms as well as to an alternative set of terms between the Business Account holder and Bringoz.
Business Accounts will have additional Users under their Account, such as employees, service providers, or whomever they shall define. The Users under the Business Accounts will be recognized by their mobile phone number, Web App or web site. Users under Business Accounts may be required to insert information differently, depending on the specific business’s requirements.
In the event of any conflict between these Terms expressed here and the specific terms for the Business Account, the terms of the specific Business Account will be the deciding terms.
Bringoz will provide the Business Accounts with a management console and general permissions which will include various features, including the option to create reports and to monitor deliveries in real time. The Business Account owner agrees that he/she is aware that during the use of the services, the Users of the Business Account will have access to all the information in the console and reports, including delivery destinations, routes, etc. The Users under the Business Account confirm that they have the authority to charge the Account.
Users can sign up for both Business and standard Accounts. The User will be responsible for the Accounts and to make sure to use each type as needed. Bringoz will not be responsible for any errors caused by confusion between the two Account types, or for any damage or loss caused by this confusion.
Receipts/invoices for Business Accounts will be sent via email unless otherwise required and agreed by both parties. The Business Account holder agrees that (1) email receipt is equivalent to receipt of a physical copy; (2) there will be no complaint if the email is identified as spam or junk mail by the Account holder’s email service; (3) any errors in the email address syntax will be full responsibility of the Account holder.
The electronic receipts are to allow Business Account holders to track and monitor their Bringoz activities. Moreover, the provision of the receipts doesn’t change the relationship between Bringoz and the Shipper as to the Delivery Tasks; these are solely between the Shipper and the Driver who has taken ownership of the specific Delivery Task.
Users of Bringoz Platform Services make their contracts for delivery directly with other Users. Bringoz is not and will not be a party to any contracts between Users but rather facilitates the exchange of the information between the parties via the Platform. You understand that use of the Platform Services as a Shipper or Driver can result in charges to you for the services you receive ("Charges"). Any fees that Bringoz may charge a User for their use of the Platform Services are due immediately to Bringoz and are non-refundable. Any Charges paid by Users in connection with a Delivery Task which are retained by Bringoz are solely in exchange for the use of the Platform Services.
Shippers will be responsible for paying to Bringoz the Charges invoiced in relation to a Delivery Task, which shall include both fees which will be distributed to the Driver for the delivery and fees retained by Bringoz for the Platform Services. Bringoz, or any agent it may designate for such purposes, will receive and/or enable a Shipper’s payment of all applicable Charges. Charges will be inclusive of applicable taxes where required by law. Charges may include other applicable fees, tolls, and/or surcharges including a priority fee, municipal tolls, airport surcharges, etc. Bringoz will transmit any portion of the fees owed for the delivery to the Driver, minus such amounts as Bringoz shall retain for the Platform Services.
All Charges and payments will be enabled by Bringoz using the preferred payment method designated in your Account, after which you will receive a receipt by email. The electronic receipts are to allow Users to track and monitor their Bringoz activities. Moreover, the provision of the receipts doesn’t change the relationship between Bringoz and the Shipper as to the Delivery Tasks; these are solely between the Shipper and the Driver who has taken ownership of the specific Delivery Task.
If your primary Account payment method is determined to be expired, invalid, or otherwise not able to be charged, you agree that Bringoz may use a secondary payment method in your Account, if available. Charges paid by you are final and non-refundable, unless otherwise determined by Bringoz.
As between you and Bringoz, Bringoz reserves the right to establish, remove, and/or revise Charges at any time in Bringoz’s sole discretion. Further, you acknowledge and agree that Charges applicable in certain geographical areas may increase substantially during times of high demand. Bringoz will inform you of Charges that apply, in advance.
Bringoz may from time to time provide certain Users with promotional offers and discounts that may result in different amounts charged for the same or similar services obtained through the use of the Platform Services, and you agree that such promotional offers and discounts, unless also made available to you, shall have no bearing on your use of the Platform Services or the Charges applied to you.
As a Shipper, you may elect to cancel your request for pick-up, carry, distribution, and delivery services at any time prior to the commencement of such pick-up, carry, distribution, and delivery services, in which case you may be charged a cancellation fee on a Driver’s or other third party’s behalf.
Bringoz may use the proceeds of any retained Charges for any purpose, subject to any payment obligations it has agreed to with third parties.
Charges related to a Delivery Task will be calculated by Bringoz according to the delivery details. The fees are subject to adjustment from time to time and during the Delivery Task. Shipper will be advised of the final fee prior to completion of the Delivery Task.
The changing fees are based upon the following, but not limited to them—market research, distance estimation, misreporting of item weight, routing, number of items, urgency, weather, traffic, and other factors.
Charges related to a Delivery Task include the payment to the Driver for the delivery. Bringoz will forward payment to the Driver only after the delivery is made, approved and completed. Payment to the Driver will be based on each specific Delivery Task.
Users may also be assessed fees in connection with an election to purchase optional delivery insurance from a third party insurance provider pursuant to Section 7 of these Terms.
Drivers will make reasonable effort to place delivery items in the hands of the designated recipient or other person at the delivery address specified for the Delivery Task. Unless otherwise expressly specified by the Shipper in the Delivery Task request, if a Driver is unable to locate a responsible person at the delivery address, the delivery items will be left in a reasonable location at the delivery address. If a Shipper specifies in the Delivery Task request that the delivery items must be hand-delivered to a person and no person is available to accept such delivery, then the delivery items will be returned to the Shipper and a cancellation fee to be decided by Bringoz will apply.
In the event of a problem completing the Delivery Task, whether due to incorrect information entered at the time of the Delivery Task creation, a pick-up issue, an issue at the recipient end, including refusal of the delivery, or for any other reason due to Shipper or recipient, the Driver or the service center will contact the Shipper for further instructions. If the Driver is in possession of the delivery item and the issue cannot be resolved within a reasonable timeframe, Driver must return the item to Shipper or to another destination as specified by Bringoz. In this case it will be at Bringoz’s discretion whether to charge a cancellation fee, and the amount, or if to charge an additional delivery fee based on the next drop-off location.
However, if the Driver is requested by Shipper or a designated recipient to wait at either the pick-up or drop-off location, Bringoz reserves the right to charge each additional minute at $0.50 per minute. In the event that there are multiple destinations to your delivery request, each destination will be separate and each time the waiting period will start anew. The waiting period is automatically calculated and the charge will be automatically added to your shipping fee. That said, if the wait is caused by fault of the Driver, as agreed by Bringoz, no waiting fee will apply. The Driver has no obligation to wait more than 15 minutes.
If for any reason, the item is required to be stored at Bringoz’s office, without Bringoz’s prior agreement in writing, Bringoz will not be responsible for any damage or loss of the item. Regardless of this, Bringoz will charge the Shipper a daily fee of $10.00 (US) + any relevant taxes, subject to the size of the item and Bringoz’s specific consideration. The storage fee will automatically be added to the service fee and charged to Shipper.
Cancellation of delivery is made possible via the “Cancel Delivery” button on the “Order Details” window on the Site and App. Cancellation of a delivery while its status is “Not Started” will cancel the delivery without any charge. Cancel of the delivery once it has been picked up will cause the Shipper to be charged the full service fee unless otherwise decided by Bringoz.
In the event that the package isn’t ready when the Driver arrives, and the Shipper requests that the Driver return at a later date without supplying a different item for delivery, the Shipper will be charged the full service fee.
In the event that the item to be delivered differs from the description provided in the order (i.e. is much larger, is fragile, etc), and Driver accepts the Delivery Task, Bringoz will charge an updated fee reflecting the accurate characteristics of the item.
Following completed delivery and payment of the service fee, a receipt will be sent to Shipper via email, to the email address listed on the Account. Sending of the receipt by email is in lieu of sending a physical receipt and will be done unless otherwise decided by Bringoz. Bringoz has chosen to utilize the option of email receipts in order to improve process efficiency.
In the event that a Shipper improperly packs a delivery item or ships any Prohibited Item and such shipment causes damage to the Driver’s vehicle in excess of normal "wear and tear,” the Shipper shall be responsible for the cost of repair or necessary cleaning of the Driver’s vehicle ("Repair or Cleaning"). In the event that a Repair or Cleaning request is verified by Bringoz in Bringoz's reasonable discretion, Bringoz reserves the right to facilitate payment for the reasonable cost of such Repair or Cleaning using your payment method designated in your Account. Such amounts will be transferred by Bringoz to the Driver, if applicable, and are non-refundable.
9.3. Credit Card Payments
In order to process your payment, the information you enter on the Bringoz App, Drivers App, Web App, or Site is forwarded directly to the PSP who then connects between your Account and your payment information, anonymously. Bringoz does not save your Credit Card information nor use it in any way other than described here.
Bringoz bears no responsibility for the services provided by the PSP. By agreeing to these Terms you consent to provide payment via the PSP chosen by Bringoz and to bear full responsibility for this use. Moreover, the User understands that Bringoz will send a receipt for payment once the transaction is approved, yet in no way does this receipt indicate a contractual relationship between Bringoz and the User.
Prior to approval of a delivery, Bringoz will send the PSP a request to check credit availability for payment of the delivery fee. In the event that the availability request is denied, User will be asked to provide alternative payment details.
THE PLATFORM SERVICES ARE PROVIDED "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE." BRINGOZ DISCLAIMS ALL REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES, EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR STATUTORY, NOT EXPRESSLY SET OUT IN THESE TERMS, INCLUDING THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. IN ADDITION, BRINGOZ MAKES NO REPRESENTATION, WARRANTY, OR GUARANTEE REGARDING THE RELIABILITY, TIMELINESS, QUALITY, SUITABILITY, OR AVAILABILITY OF THE PLATFORM SERVICES OR ANY SERVICES OR GOODS REQUESTED THROUGH THE USE OF THE PLATFORM SERVICES, OR THAT THE PLATFORM SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE. BRINGOZ DOES NOT GUARANTEE THE QUALITY, SUITABILITY, SAFETY, OR ABILITY OF DRIVERS OR SHIPPERS. YOU AGREE THAT THE ENTIRE RISK ARISING OUT OF YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES, AND ANY SERVICE OR GOODS REQUESTED IN CONNECTION THEREWITH, REMAINS SOLELY WITH YOU, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW.
TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PROVIDED BY LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL BRINGOZ, OR ITS LICENSORS, SERVICE PROVIDERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, OFFICERS, OR DIRECTORS BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, UNDER ANY LEGAL THEORY, ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE, OR INABILITY TO USE, ANY PART OF THE PLATFORM SERVICES OR ANY CONTENT ON THE PLATFORM SERVICES, INCLUDING ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO PERSONAL INJURY, PAIN AND SUFFERING, EMOTIONAL DISTRESS, LOSS OF REVENUE, POTENTIAL REVENUE, LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF BUSINESS GOODWILL, OR ANTICIPATED SAVINGS, LOST DATA, AND WHETHER CAUSED BY TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), BREACH OF CONTRACT, OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF FORESEEABLE.
BRINGOZ SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES, LIABILITY, OR LOSSES ARISING OUT OF ANY TRANSACTION OR RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN USERS, EVEN IF BRINGOZ HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. BRINGOZ HAS NO RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY TO YOU RELATED TO ANY DELIVERY OR LOGISTICS ARRANGEMENT BETWEEN USERS OTHER THAN AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THESE TERMS.
WITHOUT DETRACTING FROM THE ABOVE, YOU AGREE THAT THE MAXIMUM COMPENSATION AMOUNT FROM BRINGOZ, IN ANY EVENT, WILL NOT BE MORE THAN $125.00, AND WILL BE ONLY FOR DIRECT DAMAGE
THE FOREGOING DOES NOT AFFECT ANY LIABILITY THAT CANNOT BE EXCLUDED OR LIMITED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW.
11. Dispute Resolution
THE FOLLOWING ARBITRATION REQUIREMENTS SHALL APPLY TO ALL USERS EXCEPT FOR USERS ACCESSING OR USING THE PLATFORM SERVICES AS A DRIVER. THE DISPUTE RESOLUTION MECHANISM FOR DRIVERS IS DEFINED IN THE DRIVERS’ POLICY WHICH IS INCORPORATED HEREIN.
You and Bringoz agree that any legal disputes, controversies, causes of action, or claims arising out of or related to the use of the Platform Services or the interpretation, enforceability, revocability, or validity of these Terms shall be submitted to binding arbitration. The arbitration shall be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under the then current AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules. Such arbitration will be conducted in Fulton County, Georgia. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Claims shall be brought within the time required by applicable law.
CLASS ACTION WAIVER: You and Bringoz agree that any such legal dispute or claim (whether through the Courts or arbitration) must be brought in your individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, collective, or representative proceeding. Accordingly, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative, collective, or class proceeding. Any claim that all or part of this Class Action Waiver is unenforceable, unconscionable, void or voidable may be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator.
You recognize that arbitration rulings pursuant to this section are binding and the merits of such rulings shall not be reviewed; provided, however that the arbitrator may not, however, issue a ruling that is clearly contrary to applicable state or federal law. On application of either party in a Court of competent jurisdiction, the arbitrator’s ruling may be submitted for review; not for a trial on the merits, but only for a determination of whether or not the arbitrator’s decision was clearly contrary to applicable state or federal law. If the Court finds that the arbitrator’s decision was clearly contrary to applicable law, then the arbitrator shall amend its decision accordingly.
You agree to indemnify and hold Bringoz and its affiliates and their officers, directors, employees, and agents harmless from any and all claims, demands, losses, liabilities, and expenses (including attorneys' fees), arising out of or in connection with: (i) your use of the Platform Services or services obtained through your use of the Platform Services; (ii) your breach or violation of any of these Terms; (iii) Bringoz’s use of your User Content; or (iv) your violation of the rights of any third party, including other Users.

You waive any and all objections to the exercise of jurisdiction over you and to venue in such courts.

Such notice shall be deemed to have been given upon the expiration of 48 hours after mailing or posting (if sent by first class mail or pre-paid post) or 12 hours after sending (if sent by email or telephone). You may give notice to Bringoz with such notice deemed given when received by Bringoz, at any time by letter delivered by nationally recognized overnight delivery service or first class postage prepaid mail to Bringoz, Inc. at 400 Northridge Rd, Suite 250, Atlanta, Georgia, 30350.
You may not assign these Terms without Bringoz’s prior written approval. Bringoz may assign these Terms without your consent to: (i) a subsidiary or affiliate; (ii) an acquirer of Bringoz’s equity, business or assets; or (iii) a successor by merger.

Bringoz’s failure to enforce any right or provision in these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by Bringoz in writing. Any clause in these Terms which, by nature of the Terms, should continue to exist after the period of these Terms or following their cancellation, will continue to exist unless cancelled for any reason.
13.8. Force Majeure
Bringoz will not be liable for any delay or failure to perform resulting from causes outside of its reasonable control, including without limitation any failure to perform hereunder due to unforeseen circumstances or cause beyond Bringoz’s control such as acts of God, war, terrorism, riots, embargoes, acts of civil or military authorities, fire, floods, accidents, network infrastructure failures, strikes, or shortages of transportation facilities, fuel, energy, labor, or materials.
Bringoz is happy to receive feedback from Users and to learn about suggestions for improvement, new features, new services, etc. In the event that Bringoz has researched the suggestion and decided to implement it, this will in no way allow the User intellectual rights over the aforementioned implementation.
