6.1. The services constitute a technology platform that enables users of the Application to find, route to and pay for EV charging on a pay-on-usage basis via their Membership Plans or not (“Standard Services”). In practice, Bonnet assists users to connect with independent third-party service providers, the so-called Charge Point Operators (“CPOs”) and, from there on, Bonnet operates as a payment processor through its third-party service provider and does provide EV Charging Session indirectly. In the future, Bonnet may introduce ancillary services for its users.

This includes, for example, a route mapping feature, smart data about users’ charging, information about users’ home charging, and the automation of home charging, among others as set out on our Application from time to time. Users who access and use these services free of charge acknowledge and agree that these are provided in Beta form and are currently under trial and testing processes. By using the Premium Services, you accept the entire risk arising out of trialling the Premium Services, acknowledging their early-stage nature and Bonnet gives no warranty in that respect. Bonnet may at any time (at its sole discretion) decide to charge fees for the provision of the Premium Services and any pricing introduced or new terms in relation to Premium Services will be set out on the Application.

6.4. You acknowledge that Bonnet processes payments through its third-party service provider and does not provide or own any EV Charging Stations or function as a Charge Point Operator. All such EV charging services are provided by independent CPOs who are not employed or otherwise engaged by Bonnet or any of its affiliates.
6.5. We are not responsible for the maintenance or proper functioning of the EV Charging Stations and accept no liability in relation to your use of the EV Charging Stations. The CPOs are fully responsible for ensuring the operation and maintenance of their own EV Charging Stations.
6.6. While every effort has been taken to ensure that all the information provided by Bonnet is correct, we do not accept any responsibility for the accuracy of the information contained within the Application and the Services, nor for the consequences of any actions taken or not taken as a result of this information.

We shall have neither liability nor responsibility to any person or entity with respect to any loss or damage caused, or alleged to be caused, directly or indirectly by the information contained within the Application and Services.
6.7. Any problems or questions that might arise with regard to hardware malfunction, connection issues or other services that lie outside of Bonnet Services provided to you under this Agreement, should be targeted at and dealt with by the respective party offering these services (for example: the CPO).
