You must be the Primary Driver or have the Primary Driver´s clear and undisputed consent (“Primary Drivers’ Consent”) to use a Service in any way linked to a specific Volvo car or link a Service to a specific Volvo car or to any other Service. We may at any time investigate whether you are the Primary Driver or have the Primary Driver´s Consent.
