The Contractor provides its offer and services for the respective contracting party (hereinafter referred to as the ‘Principal’) exclusively on the basis of these General Terms and Conditions. Any conflicting general terms and conditions of the Principal shall not apply. Even if the Contractor does not expressly object to such terms and conditions they shall not apply. § 1
(1) Agency for road infrastructure
The agency for road infrastructure (АГЕНЦИЯ "ПЪТНА ИНФРАСТРУКТУРА", Адрес: София, бул."Македония" № 3, П.К. 1606, Bulgaria) is a specialised agency of the Ministry for Regional Development and Public Works, Bulgaria ((Министерство на регионалното развитие и благоустройството на България) and is responsible for the planning, preservation and management of the state road infrastructure in Bulgaria.
(2) National Tolling Management
National Tolling Management (“Национално тол управление”) is a specialised department of the Bulgarian Agency for Road infrastructure (АГЕНЦИЯ "ПЪТНА ИНФРАСТРУКТУРА”), which is responsible for the administration of the electronic toll collection system in Bulgaria on the basis of the routes driven by vehicles with a maximum technically permissible total mass of over 3.5t (toll fee) and for a specific time period for lightweight vehicles with a maximum technically permissible total mass of or from 3.5t (electronic Vignette). National Tolling Management fulfils several functions, in principle in relation to the operation and maintenance of the electronic system, and with respect to the implementation of controlling and collection of toll fees. § 2 Object of the order
The electronic vignette for the transport network subject to tolling came into force on 1 January 2019 in Bulgaria. All users of the Bulgarian public transport network are obliged to purchase an electronic vignette (hereinafter referred to as the ‘E-Vignette’) prior to starting their journey. The E-Vignette can be purchased via various online and offline sales channels. The E-Vignette is not linked to a specific person, it is linked to the vehicle number plate. The vehicle number plate for a vehicle is stored in detail in National Tolling Management’s Bulgarian electronic tolling system. By creating an entry in the electronic tolling system, the vehicle with the appropriate number plate is authorised to use the public road network subject to tolling.
The object of the order is the preparation of the registration of a vehicle number plate in the Bulgarian electronic tolling system by National Tolling Management. Specifically, the Contractor shall prepare the registration of the Principal’s vehicle number plate as an independent service provider via the web service https://web.bgtoll.bg/ (managed by National Tolling Management) for the E-Vignette. The sale of toll products, specifically the E-Vignette, or the granting of road use rights are expressly not the object of this contract. The Contractor expressly stipulates to the Principal in this connection that the Contractor shall not purchase any toll products (E-Vignette) or road usage rights himself/herself and is not a sales partner of National Toll Management, the Agency for Road Infrastructure or any other public authority, but solely acts legally and commercially independent as a registration service provider.
