4. Registered Accounts
4.1 Creation; Maintenance
In order to access and use the select components of the Services, you must register for a user account with us (become a “Registered User”) and provide certain information about yourself as required by our registration form (create an “Account”). However, you do not need to become a Registered User to make purchases through the Services.
As a Registered User you are able to, among other things, market and sell goods through your social media account(s). As a Registered User, you must keep your Account information complete, accurate, and current at all times. You agree to maintain the security of your Account information and that you are responsible for all activity in connection with your Account. In the event you become aware of any unauthorized use of your Account or you suspect unauthorized use of your Account, you agree to immediately notify us. You also warrant that your use of Paypal account information in connection with your Account is authorized and that all information you provide to us is true and accurate. We cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the above requirements.
4.2 Promotions, Offers, Loyalty Programs
We may from time to time provide certain promotions, offers, or loyalty programs to our users via the Services. We reserve the right to place expiration dates and usage limits on any such promotions, offers, or loyalty programs that are available through the Services.
4.3 Listing and Selling on the Services
All items offered through the Services must be for sale. By listing an item through the Services, you warrant all aspects of the item comply with these Terms, any other posted policies, and any applicable law. You also warrant that you may legally sell the item listed. You must accurately describe all items listed and all terms of sale in your listing. Your listing may only include text descriptions, graphics, and pictures relevant to the sale of that item. If multiple quantities of an item variant are made available through a single listing, all items in that listing must be identical. Each unique item you sell on the Services must have its own listing on the Services.
We strongly encourage you to outline the terms of sale for your listings on the Services. These terms may include, for example, shipping, return, payment, and selling terms. You must create reasonable terms in good faith and abide by such terms. All listing terms must comply with these Terms, any other posted policies, and any applicable law. You are responsible for enforcing your own reasonable policies and we reserve the right to request that you modify your policies.
All sales are binding. You are obligated to ship orders or otherwise complete transactions with any other third party purchasing your goods through a listing on the Services in a prompt manner, unless there is an exceptional circumstance.
You agree that any price stated in each of your listing description will be an accurate representation of the sale. You agree that it is solely your obligation to identify, collect, and remit any sales or other tax resulting from any sales facilitated through the Services. You may not misrepresent an item's location, charge excessive shipping fees, or alter an item's price after a third party completes a transaction through your listing.
4.4 Partners Program
The Services allow any Registered User to act as a promoter (a “Promoter”) for any other Registered User that has opted to make their goods available for promotion in the Partners Marketplace (a “Supplier”). The Partners Marketplace is accessible while logged in to the Site and contains those goods that Registered Users have elected to make available for promotion in the Partners Marketplace. As a Promoter, you have the option of promoting a Supplier’s goods through your social media accounts or any other platform or service using a unique affiliate URL generated for you (a “Promo Link”). A “Promoted Sale” occurs when a customer purchases the goods identified by the Promo Link after clicking through a Promo Link.
If you elect to become a Promoter, you may become eligible to receive a percentage of the amount generated by your Promoted Sales after deductions for returns, allowances for damaged or missing goods, any discounts allowed, and any taxes (“Net Sales”). The total percentage of Net Sales available to you as a Promoter (your “Commission”) will be that percentage described in the promotional materials provided to you when you became a Registered User or thereafter changed by notice to you by Spreesy. The Commission payable to you will be transferred to the Paypal account associated with your Account upon successful completion of an applicable sale.
As a Promoter, you will have the ability to contact Suppliers directly with questions or comments. You hereby agree that any interactions with Suppliers will comply with the permissible uses found in Section 3.2. Further, as a Promoter, you will not make any public statements with respect to the relationship between you and Spreesy that would misrepresent the relationship between you and us.
As a Spreesy user, you have the opportunity to earn money by referring friends to act as a Supplier or Promoter on the Services (be a “Referrer”). As a Referrer, you can earn money if: (i) a referred friend clicks on your referral link and creates a valid Spreesy Account that complies with our Terms; and (ii) the referred friend completes a Valid Sale (as defined below) as a Supplier or Promoter using the Services. A Valid Sale is defined as a transaction facilitated by Spreesy that is not subject to a chargeback or refund request.
As a Referrer, you will be credited with the percentage of Net Sales that is described in the accompanying promotional materials provided to you when you became a Registered User or thereafter changed by notice to you. The percentage of Net Sales payable to you as a Referrer will be transferred to the Paypal account associated with your Account upon completion of a Valid Sale. As a condition of these Terms, you agree not to register multiple times for an Account using multiple names, addresses, email addresses, or other means. Any such action shall constitute a violation of these Terms and may result in the termination of your Account.
6. Purchases, Payments, and Transaction Fees
If you elect to purchase goods using our Service, you agree and acknowledge that such transaction will result in a charge to the credit or debit card you supply to Paypal or the Paypal account you supply during the checkout process. By using the Service to checkout via Paypal’s services, you warrant that your use of the Paypal account information and/or the credit or debit card information is authorized and that all information you provide during the checkout process is true and accurate.
At no time does Spreesy handle any funds resulting from a transaction through the Service and Spreesy only acts as an intermediary to facilitate payments and remittances through select Third Party Service (as defined in Section 13 below). As such, Spreesy does not offer any refunds for any transactions made through the Service. In the event of any dispute regarding a purchase or sale, you agree that the terms and conditions of such Third Party Service will control.
6.3 Transaction Fees
If you elect to sell your goods using our Service, Spreesy will charge you a fee equal to 3% of the sale price of such goods (the “Fee”). Spreesy may, from time to time, offer discounts or promotional offers that may decrease the Fee. The requirements for a special promotion or offer will be stated at the time such promotion or offer is presented. The Fee will be charged on the credit or debit card you supply to Paypal or the Paypal account you have supplied to Spreesy. By submitting your credit card, debit card, or Paypal account information to Spreesy, you are authorizing Spreesy to charge such payment method the Fee for each sale made through the Service. Unless otherwise specified, the Fee shall be in United States dollars and all charges will be made in United States dollars. Any applicable sales or other taxes are additional to the Fee. Currency exchange settlements and foreign transaction fees are based on your agreement with your credit card or other payment method provider. Spreesy reserves the right to refuse or terminate any purchase or attempted purchase at any time in its sole discretion. You understand and agree that if you authorize a payment transaction with your Paypal account or credit card, debit card or other payment method, but your charge is rejected for any reason, there may be a hold on your use of that transaction amount for several days.

17. Copyright Infringement
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. In appropriate circumstances and at the discretion of Spreesy, Spreesy may terminate your Account if you become a repeat copyright infringer. If you believe in good faith that any content made available in connection with the Services infringes your copyright, you (or your agent) may send us a notice requesting that the content be removed, or access to it blocked. Notices and counter notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA (see http://www.copyright.gov for details).
Currently, an effective notice must contain the following: (i) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (ii) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site; (iii) identification of the claimed infringing material or subject of infringing activity that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material; (iv) your address, telephone number, and, if available, your email address; (v) a statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (vi) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
Notices and counter notices with respect to the Services should be sent to Attn: DMCA, Spreesy LLC, 2121 6th Avenue #S2012, Seattle, WA 98121, or by email to email@example.com.

No failure or delay by a party in exercising any right under these Terms will operate as a waiver thereof, nor will any single or partial exercise of any right preclude any other or further exercise of any such right.
18.4 No Partnership or Joint Venture
You and Spreesy are independent entities, and no agency, partnership, joint venture, or employee-employer relationship is intended or created by these Terms.
The invalidity or unenforceability of any provision of these Terms will not affect the validity or enforceability of any other provision of these Terms, all of which will remain in full force and effect.
