In essence, it is said that Doordash can make changes whenever they wish. If they do, they must inform the contractor of the agreement before proceeding with the amendment. The complaint comes at a crucial time for Olo, who went public in mid-March and initially grossed $450 million. DoorDash stated in the complaint that it is Olo`s largest business partner and accounts for nearly 20% of Olo`s revenue. Olo stated in its S-1 submission, before it was made public, that a termination of the contract with DoorDash “could significantly and detrimentally affect our revenues and affect our profitability.” For now, you must expressly approve the amendment. In the future, all they have to do is inform you that they will change it. If you continue to use the app after the change, it means your consent to the change. To my knowledge, this agreement opens the door for you to opt out of this section. We`ll talk about that later. New contract: no contractor (or its representative or representative) can opt-out on behalf of other CONTRACTORS.
If CONTRACTOR was bound by an existing arbitration agreement with DOORDASH at the time of contract receipt by CONTRACTOR, this arbitration agreement continues to apply to all ongoing litigation, even if CONTRACTOR excludes itself from that arbitration agreement. In 2019, Uber tried to merge with DoorDash, but the two rivals failed to reach an agreement. DoorDash acquired Squares Caviar Food Delivery Service for $410 million a few months later, which is still available. The thing is why put this in the contractor`s agreement? The only answer I can imagine is that they want to have more control over how the application is used. If they introduce this, they may need to act if the application is misused, as Doordash defines it. Its goal was to set up an artificial intelligence system capable of perfecting delivery by taking into account each variant of the delivery process and using data to better assess delivery time and reduce errors. Named Deep Red in homage to the IBM chess system that Garry Kasparov beat, the system recommends restaurants for users and assigns the most competent driver to a delivery.
