Uber is a third party technology platform and shall provide in-app screens and tools for the Delivery People to help complete the ID verification compliantly. Where applicable or required by law, the in-app screen may enable the Delivery Person to capture a photo of the Customer’s ID and capture the Customer’s signature.
If the Delivery Person is unable to deliver an Alcohol Item due to the act or omission of the Customer who purchased such Alcohol Items from Merchant, then Merchant agrees that the Customer may be charged for a return fee (the “Return Fee”), the amount of which shall be determined according to the standard fares charged by Delivery People in the region.
