Bring Group Ltd (“we”, “us”, “our”) provides these terms and conditions which apply to your use of the Bring app or website (the “Service”).
We are a matching service. We are not a delivery transport solution or a commercial service, rather we allow individuals who collect and transport (the “Bringer”) your goods (the “Package”) to be matched to senders (the “Sender”). We match Senders and Bringers on the move to utilise available transport capacity. All registered Users can act both as Senders and Bringers. The Service provides the ability to match these two parties.
You should understand that by ordering any of our Services, you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions.
We reserve the right, to change, modify, add, or remove portions of the Terms and Conditions at any time. Please check these Terms and Conditions regularly for updates. Your continued use of the Service following the posting of changes to these Terms and Conditions constitutes your acceptance of those changes.
By using or purchasing our Services you agree to be bound by these terms and conditions and they shall constitute the entire agreement between us (the “Agreement”).
We do everything in our power to ensure that our Service is fully operational and available to you at all times. However, in order to make sure it is up to date and offering you the best service, access may sometimes be interrupted or restricted to allow for maintenance or the introduction of new facilities and services.
RELIANCE ON USERS
Although we use techniques that aim to verify the accuracy and truth of the information provided by our users, user verification on the internet is difficult. We are not responsible for ensuring, the accuracy or truthfulness of Users’ purported identities or the validity of the information which they post on our Service.
THIRD PARTY LIABILITY
After matching, Users finalise transportation arrangements directly. We provide Usage Rules which contains recommended terms and conditions between the Sender and the Bringer.
Users enter into a direct agreement with each other so we are not a contractual party to such agreements. We merely supply the medium for Users to connect with each other and to facilitate payments for Services and other added-value services rendered between Users.
While we request information to identify registered Users, the Service is dependent on the Users providing correct information. Consequently, we do not take any responsibility for the actions or omissions of any Users connecting via the Service and neither do we assume any responsibility for the accuracy or reliability of User information or any other information on the Service.
The Bringer understands that items sent may be packaged or wrapped, but it is not a requirement that the item is packaged or wrapped. Any damage to the item due to lack of packaging or wrapping is not the responsibility of the Sender.
The Sender may in its absolute discretion refuse to provide the Services to you. The delivery of service is a sole responsibility of the Sender. In case of refusal by a particular sender, we will look for an alternative solution to get your Package delivered as fast as possible.

You can at any time unsubscribe from the newsletters, and change the notifications settings. Some system critical messages cannot be turned off.
You shall for all purposes be treated as sole beneficial owner of the Package.
You agree that if any other person shall in respect of any Package make any claim against us or the Sender arising out of the Contract (whether arising out of any negligence, breach of duty or other wrongful act or omission by us, the Sender or otherwise) outside or beyond our liability to you, then you shall indemnify each of us and the Sender against such claim (and all costs incurred by us or the Sender in relation thereto). Neither we nor the Sender shall be under any liability to you in respect of any such claim.
REFUSAL AND SUSPENSION OF CARRIAGE
If it comes to the attention of either us or the Bringer that any Package does not meet any of the restrictions or conditions set out in these terms and conditions, we or the Bringer may refuse to transport the Package and, if carriage is in progress, we or the Bringer may suspend carriage and hold the Package to your order.
