Terms of Service
By using the Site in any manner, including but not limited to visiting or browsing the Site, you (the "user" or "you") agree to be bound by this Agreement, including those additional terms and conditions and policies referenced herein and/or available by hyperlink. This Agreement applies to all users of the Site, including without limitation users who are vendors, customers, merchants, contributors of content, information and other materials or services on the Site.
1. Melu is a Venue
Melu acts as a venue to allow users who comply with Melu's policies to offer, sell and buy certain meals or food items within a fixed-price format. Melu is not directly involved in the transaction between buyers and sellers. As a result, Melu has no control over the quality, safety, morality or legality of any aspect of the items listed, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of sellers to sell items or the ability of buyers to pay for items. Melu cannot ensure that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction.
Consequently, Melu does not transfer legal ownership of items from the seller to the buyer.
Melu cannot guarantee the true identity, age, and nationality of a user. Melu encourages you to communicate directly with potential transaction partners through the tools available on the Site. You may also wish to consider using a third-party escrow service or services that provide additional user verification.
You agree that Melu is a venue and as such is not responsible or liable for any content, for example, data, text, information, usernames, graphics, images, photographs, profiles, audio, video, items, and links posted by you, other users, or outside parties on Melu. You use the Melu service at your own risk.
2. Membership Eligibility
Age: Melu's services are available only to, and may only be used by, individuals who are 18 years and older who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. You represent and warrant that you are at least 18 years old and that all registration information you submit is accurate and truthful. Melu may, in its sole discretion, refuse to offer access to or use of the Site to any person or entity and change its eligibility criteria at any time. This provision is void where prohibited by law and the right to access the Site is revoked in such jurisdictions.
Individuals under the age of 18 must at all times use Melu's services only in conjunction with and under the supervision of a parent or legal guardian who is at least 18 years of age. In this all cases, the adult is the user and is responsible for any and all activities.
Password: Keep your password secure. You are fully responsible for all activity, liability and damage resulting from your failure to maintain password confidentiality. You agree to immediately notify Melu of any unauthorized use of your password or any breach of security. You also agree that Melu cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to keep your password secure. You agree not to provide your username and password information in combination to any other party other than Melu without Melu's express written permission.
Account Information: You must keep your account information up-to-date and accurate at all times, including a valid email address. To sell items on Melu you must provide and maintain valid payment information such as valid credit card information or a valid PayPal account.
Account Transfer: You may not transfer or sell your Melu account and User ID to another party. If you are registering as a business entity, you personally guarantee that you have the authority to bind the entity to this Agreement. Right to Refuse Service: Melu's services are not available to temporarily or indefinitely suspended Melu members. Melu reserves the right, in Melu's sole discretion, to cancel unconfirmed or inactive accounts. Melu reserves the right to refuse service to anyone, for any reason, at any time.
3. Fees and Services
Melu charges fees for listing an item for sale, as well as a percentage of the sale price when the item sells. When you list an item you have an opportunity to review and accept the fees that you will be charged. Melu may choose to change the fees for Melu's services, at which point Melu will give you notice of the change. Such changes are effective immediately. Melu may, at Melu's sole discretion, change some or all of Melu's services at any time. In the event Melu introduces a new service, the fees for that service are effective at the launch of the service. Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted in US Dollars (USD).
You are responsible for paying all fees and applicable taxes associated with using Melu.
Fees and Termination: If Melu terminates a listing or your account, if you close your account, or if the payment of your Melu fees cannot be completed for any reason, you remain obligated to pay Melu for all unpaid fees plus any penalties, if applicable. If the seller's account is not paid in full and becomes past due, the seller risks penalties such as the suspension of privileges and/or termination of the account and other collection mechanisms (including retaining collection agencies and legal counsel). If you have a question or wish to dispute a charge, contact Melu.
4. Listing and Selling
Listing Description: By listing an item on the Site you warrant that you and all aspects of the item comply with Melu's published policies. You also warrant that you may legally sell the item. You must accurately describe your item and all terms of sale in your Melu shop. Your listings may only include text descriptions, graphics, pictures and other content relevant to the sale of that item. All items must be listed in an appropriate category with appropriate tags. Each listing must accurately and completely describe the item/items for sale in that listing.
Shop Policies: All sellers are urged to outline shop policies for their Melu shop. These policies include, for example: payment and selling policies. Sellers must create reasonable policies in good faith and must abide by such policies. All shop policies must comply with Melu's site-wide Sellers are responsible for enforcing their own reasonable shop policies. Melu reserves the right request that a seller modify a shop policy.
Binding Sale: All sales are binding. The seller is obligated to ship the order or otherwise complete the transaction with the buyer in a prompt manner, unless there is an exceptional circumstance, such as: (a) the buyer fails to meet the terms of the seller's listing (such as payment method), or (b) the seller cannot authenticate the buyer's identity. The buyer is obligated to deliver appropriate payment for items purchased, unless there is an exceptional circumstance.
Fee Avoidance: The price stated in each item listing description must be an accurate representation of the sale. Sellers may charge reasonable shipping and handling fees to cover the costs for packaging and mailing the items. Sellers may not charge excessive shipping fees or otherwise avoid fees. You may not alter the item's price after a sale for the purpose of avoiding Melu transaction fees, misrepresent the item information, or use another user's account without permission.
Order Processing: Melu may, in its sole discretion, choose to not process or to cancel your order in certain circumstances. This may occur, for example, when the product or service you wish to purchase is out of stock or has been mispriced, we suspect the request is fraudulent, or in other circumstances Melu deems appropriate in its sole discretion. Melu also reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to take steps to verify your identity to process your order. Melu will either not charge you or refund the charges for orders that we do not process or cancel.
Refund Policy: Melu may grant refund on certain items on a case-by-case basis and is at the sole discretion of Melu.
Pricing Information: Melu strives to provide accurate pricing information regarding the products and services available on Melu. We cannot, however, insure against pricing errors. Melu reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to not process or to cancel any orders placed for a product or service whose price was incorrectly posted on the site as a result of an error. If this occurs, Melu will notify you by email. In addition, Melu reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to correct any error in the pricing.
Product and Service Availability: Melu may contain information regarding the availability of merchandise. This information can be used to estimate the likelihood that an item will be shipped immediately after you place your order. Unfortunately, Melu cannot guarantee that an item listed as “in stock” will actually ship right away, as inventory can change significantly from day-to-day. In rare cases, a product or service offering may be in stock when a customer places the order, and sold out by the time Melu attempts to process the order. Should this happen, Melu will notify you by email. Service offerings that are out-of-stock generally are no longer available. If Melu determines that a product or service you wish to purchase is no longer available, the item will be canceled from your order. Melu will notify you by email and delete the item from the Site.
