Terms and Conditions
Version 1.0 – June 2023
These terms and conditions ("Terms") govern the access to, and the use of a digital platform ("Platform") and related services (together the "Services"), available on https://www.bonapp.app/, which provides a software solution that supports restaurants and other entities ("Partners") to run and manage the internal organizational tasks as well as simplifies the ordering and payment process for Partner's customers ("End-Customer").
Services are offered by BonApp Group SA, Route de la Claie aux Moines 106, 1090 La Croix sur Lutry ("BonApp").
To access or use the Services, the Partner must accept these Terms when signing an order form ("Order Form"). If the Partner does not agree to these Terms, the Partner may not use or access the Services.
These Terms, together with all other referenced documents, form a legally binding agreement ("Agreement") between BonApp and the Partner.
These Terms do not govern the relationship between BonApp and the End-Customer.
BonApp offers a Platform for simplified orders and payment processes via mobile devices, including:
- Creating and managing menus and offers;
- Tracking End-Customers' requests and orders ("End-Customer Orders");
- Tracking operations and revenue in Partner's establishments;
- Generate unique identifiers for each table in the Establishment;
- Allowing End-Customers to split their bills or pay them directly by one of the approved payment methods, including tips if applicable ("Transactions").
In addition to Platform features and services described above, BonApp offers debt collection services when BonApp is responsible for processing Transactions on behalf of the Partner. Partner appoints BonApp as a debt collection agent regarding payments received in relation to Transactions, which BonApp collects via the external payment provider indicated in the End-Customer's Order ("Payment Provider").
BonApp may add new features to the Services at any time and may modify or delete them.
2.1 Access to Services
Partner must register and create an account on the Platform ("Account") to access and use all or part of the Services.
Partner must provide accurate, current, and complete information during registration and keep their Account information up-to-date. Accounts registered by bots or automated methods are not authorized and will be terminated.
The Partner undertakes to read these Terms before validating their registration on the Services and acknowledge that the fact of registering implies their full and unreserved adherence to these Terms. The Terms are considered to have been accepted by the Partner once connected to the Services.
Partner is responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of their Account credentials and may not disclose their credentials to any third party. Partner is responsible and liable for activities conducted through their Account and must immediately notify BonApp if there is any suspicion that their credentials have been lost, stolen, or their Account is otherwise compromised.
If and as permitted by applicable law, BonApp may, but has no obligation to (i) ask the Partner to provide identification or other information, (ii) undertake checks designed to help verify Partner's identity or background, and (iii) screen the Partner against third-party databases or other sources and request reports from service providers.
Service is intended to facilitate End-Customer Orders and payment processes of End-Customers within drinking or catering establishments. Any other use is excluded and expressly prohibited.
Every use that may be damaging to BonApp, Partners, Payment Providers, or End-Customers is prohibited.
In case any Transaction has taken place in violation of these Terms or applicable law, BonApp reserves the right to deny the Transaction, suspend or terminate the access to Service.
End-Customer Orders containing age restricted products
In case of End-Customer Orders of age restricted products (including, without limitation, alcohol, tobacco, and cigarettes) that can only be sold and delivered to persons above a certain age limit, the responsibility of age verification falls solely on the Partner.

- If the Partner disagrees with the material change to the Services or Terms (including changes of the respective fees), the Partner may terminate the Agreement within 1 month from BonApp's notice where applicable, otherwise from the publication of the respective change. Such termination is effective from the date the changes take effect or the delivery date of the termination notice if occurred after the changes took effect.

The Partner is obliged to cooperate in the performance of this Agreement to the necessary extent free of charge. The Partner is obliged to provide BonApp with all necessary information, documents, materials, access, data, as well as competent staff, and anything else reasonably required for the provision of Services. Furthermore, the Partner is obliged to inform BonApp immediately if errors or faults occur and to support BonApp in the analysis and, if necessary, in the elimination of errors and faults to the extent required.
If the provision of Services under this Agreement is delayed due to the Partner's failure to comply with their duty to cooperate or due to other circumstances for which the Partner is responsible, the Partner shall bear the disadvantages and additional costs incurred.
The Partner must immediately inform BonApp of all circumstances within its sphere that might endanger or may be relevant to the providing the Services and all misuses or suspicions of misuse of the Services.
The Partner may not:
- Circumvent or attempt to circumvent any security protection of the Services;
- Use the Services in unlawful or fraudulent ways or for any unlawful or fraudulent purpose or effect;
- Access the Services via any automated system or take any action that may impose an unreasonable load on BonApp's infrastructure;

Furthermore, the Partner is responsible for determining, levying, holding, reporting, and remitting to the appropriate taxing authorities, any taxes assessed, required, or to be levied, paid, or held for any reason in connection with the use of Services and Transactions. The Partner agrees they will not, unless with BonApp's prior written permission:
- Try to decompile or reverse engineer the Services or any part of it, or derive the source code;
- Copy, modify, distribute, reproduce, translate, disassemble or use in any other way any information, text, graphics, images, software obtained from the Services, or any other part of the Services;

The Partner must designate a responsible contact person and provide BonApp with all contact details and ensure the availability of the contact person.
Fees & Payment
BonApp provides numerous Service options. Certain Services options may be provided free of charge, while other options require payment before they can be accessed ("Service Fees") as specified on Partner’s account.
If not explicitly stated otherwise, all Fees are in CHF and excluding VAT and other applicable taxes.
Partners acknowledge that the deposit section in the menu does not incorporate any value-added tax (VAT). The Partner acknowledges and agrees that any responsibility arising from the absence of VAT on deposits, including but not limited to the payment of any outstanding VAT and legal consequences, is solely borne by the Partner. BonApp disclaims any liability concerning the VAT not levied on deposits, including, but not limited to, financial and legal consequences.
Each party agrees to bear their own costs associated with bank transfers.
The prices of the products offered by the Partner (e.g. food, drinks, others) can be found on the Platform. These prices are exclusively set by the Partner and are updated from time to time.
Partner appoints BonApp as a debt collection service provider for all End Customers' payment obligations in regard to End-Customer’s Orders made via the Platform. BonApp shall make reasonable efforts to collect the outstanding debt owed by the Partner. BonApp may employ various debt collection methods, including but not limited to written communications, phone calls, negotiations, and legal actions. BonApp reserves the right to introduce a fee for the debt collection service subject to 14 days notice.
The Partner acknowledges that BonApp makes no guarantees or representations regarding the success or timeframe of debt collection efforts. BonApp has a right to withdraw from its position as a debt collection service provider at any time without any liability.
BonApp will pay the Partner an amount equal to the amount of the Transactions carried out via BonApp’s Service and received by BonApp, minus the fees referred to in this Section, if applicable.
BonApp will transfer the collected debt to the Partner in regular intervals, but generally at least monthly via means indicated in the Order Form.
To pay their bills, the End-Customers may use the authorized payment methods as indicated in End-Customer's Order and on the Service to facilitate debt collection.
Partner explicitly authorizes the Payment Provider and any sub-contractor to hold, receive, and disburse on Partner’s behalf payments for Transactions made by End-Customers. The Payment Provider will clear End-Customer’s payment with the Partner by acting with the limited authorization of BonApp to collect payments. The End-Customer payments are thus treated as if the End-Customer had made them to the Partner directly. All prices indicated in End-Customer's Order are to be paid immediately.
The Partner will be invited to register directly with the Payment Provider and provide them with the necessary information to undergo a Payment Provider’s Know Your Customer (KYC) background check.
Liability & Indemnity
BonApp is fully liable to Partner for direct damages resulting from wilful misconduct or gross negligence. In all other cases, the liability of BonApp is limited to the maximum extent permitted by law.
Partner may not recover from BonApp, regardless of the legal reason, any amount with respect to loss of profit, data, or goodwill, or any consequential, incidental, indirect, punitive, or special damages in connection with claims arising out of this Agreement or otherwise relating to the Services, whether or not the likelihood of such loss or damage was contemplated.
If the End-Customer asserts claims against BonApp as a result of the use of BonApp, the Partner undertakes to indemnify BonApp from all claims, damage, and expenses (including court fees and legal costs).
The Partner also agrees to indemnify BonApp for any damages that BonApp may suffer (including any expert fees and attorneys’ fees) in connection with Partner’s violation of the applicable law or these Terms.
BonApp will not be held liable for inaccuracy or incompleteness of the Services or the information provided by the Partner, or the incompatibility of the Services with any specific objectives that Partner is hoping to achieve.
Neither party shall be liable for any failure to perform its obligations under this Agreement (other than payment obligations) caused by circumstances beyond the parties’ reasonable control (force majeure).
Term & Termination
The Agreement between the parties remains in full force and effect until its termination by either party. The termination is immediately effective.
Either party may terminate the Agreement at any time with immediate effect if the other party is in material breach of the Agreement and fails to remedy this violation within 14 days after a notice. This includes in particular Partner’s failure to pay on time or the start of insolvency procedures against the other party.
Termination does not affect any rights, obligations, or liabilities of either party that have accrued before or are intended to stay effective beyond termination. Already paid fees will not be reimbursed; all due fees remain payable.
Upon termination, Partner’s account will be deactivated, and access will be terminated.
Each party retains all rights, titles, and interests to its own intellectual property, including all copyrights, inventions, trademarks, designs, domain names, know-how, trade secrets, data and other intangible property rights ("Intellectual Property Rights"). All Intellectual Property Rights in the Services or any part of it remain vested in BonApp.
Where applicable and only to the extent necessary, for the duration of use of Services, BonApp grants the Partner a revocable, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable right to use the Services according to these Terms.
Partner is prohibited from using BonApp’s trademarks and logos without their written authorization, as well as from copying or reproducing BonApp's Platform.
Warranties & Representations
The Partner acknowledges that the Services are provided "as is" and "as available", and BonApp makes no warranties or representations of any kind related to the Services or the information and materials contained thereon.
The Partner represents and warrants that they are not a person or entity barred from using the Services under the laws of Switzerland, their place of residence, or any other applicable jurisdiction.

The Partner must comply with all applicable laws and regulations regarding the sale of alcoholic beverages, including age restrictions. The Partner indemnifies and holds BonApp harmless from any liabilities arising from the sale or consumption of alcoholic beverages. BonApp does not guarantee that the Services are error-free and will function without any interruption or disruption. BonApp may at its own discretion carry out maintenance or improvements to the Services and its infrastructure, and the Partner acknowledges that this may result in temporary delays and interruptions from time to time. Where reasonably possible, BonApp will inform the Partner about potential interruptions in advance.
Any unavailability due to bugs, technical constraints, and other maintenance operations does not give rise to any right to any reimbursement. Neither adding, modification, or deletion of any feature of the Service gives the Partner a right to any refund.
Any further warranty is excluded.
Confidentiality & Privacy
BonApp treats the confidential information of the Partner with adequate confidentiality standards and processes the Partner's personal information only as needed.
Partner authorizes BonApp to use, process, and store relevant data for the performance of the Agreement and to use anonymized data to improve its services or for analysis purposes.
The parties may further define their duties regarding data protection in a data processing agreement, in which case the provisions of the data processing agreement prevail.
Entire Agreement: The Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between BonApp and the Partner, and supersedes all prior agreements, between the parties relating to the subject matter of the Agreement.

Where possible, BonApp will electronically notify the Partner of any material changes to the Terms. The Partner should check the Terms regularly and only use the Services upon acceptance of the changes to the Terms.

- To BonApp's attention: via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
- To Partner's attention: via email address used for registering the Account.

The ordinary court at the seat of BonApp has exclusive jurisdiction for all disputes arising from or in connection with the Terms.
Links: The Services may contain third-party content or links to third-party websites. BonApp does not assume any responsibility for and does not make any warranties or representations as to any third-party content or websites, including but not limited to the accuracy, subject matter, quality, or timeliness.
