A. The Site Is a Venue
You agree that the Site is a venue that allows users who comply with GetScents’ policies to offer, sell and buy aromatherapy products within a fixed-price format. As such, GetScents is not responsible or liable for any content (e.g., data, text, information, usernames, graphics, images, photographs, profiles, audio, video, items, and links) posted by you, other users, or outside parties on the Site. You use the Site and any other GetScents Services at your own risk. GetScents is not directly involved in the transaction between buyers and sellers. As a result, GetScents 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. GetScents does not pre-screen users or the content or information provided by users. GetScents cannot ensure that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction. GetScents holds no right, title, or interest in any products or items listed on the Site and does not transfer legal ownership of items from the seller to the buyer. GetScents does not verify and cannot guarantee the true identity, age, and nationality of a user. GetScents encourages each user to communicate directly with potential transaction partners through the tools available on the Site. You agree that GetScents is not responsible or liable for any content, for example, data, text, information, usernames, graphics, images, photographs, profiles, audio, video, items, or any other copyrighted material and links posted by you, other users, or outside parties on GetScents. You use the GetScents service at your own risk.
B. Membership Eligibility
GetScents Services are available only to, and may only be used by, individuals who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. The Site and any GetScents Services are not available to minors (persons under the age of 18) or to temporarily or indefinitely suspended GetScents Members. If you are a under the age of 18, you can use this service only in conjunction with, and under the supervision of, your parents or guardians. If you do not qualify, please do not use GetScents. Further, you also agree not to transfer or sell your account (including feedback) or User ID. GetScents may, in its sole discretion, refuse to offer access to or use of the Site or any GetScents Services to any person or entity. Moreover, GetScents may change its user 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.
C. Buyer Obligations and Guidelines
Buyer is obligated to immediately complete the transaction of a purchase of an item on the Site in any shop by using the payment options provided thereon. Any issues with the product sold, including any and all requests for returns, are between Buyer and Seller. GetScents shall have no obligation to participate or intervene in any request for a refund. Buyer’s remorse is not a valid reason for requesting a refund from a Seller. Prior to making a purchase, a Buyer should review all Seller policies regarding refunds and returns prior to purchase.
D. Seller Obligations and Guidelines
- Listing Description: All items listed on the Site by you must be for sale, and not merely for promotion or for information. By listing an item on the Site, you warrant that you and all aspects of the item comply with GetScents’ published policies. You also warrant that you may legally sell the item. You must accurately describe your item and all terms of sale, including purchase price and shipping costs, on the listing page of the Site. Your listings may only include text descriptions, graphics, pictures and other content relevant to the sale of that item. All listed items must be listed in an appropriate category. If the “in stock” quantity is more than one, all items in that listing must be identical. Each unique item must have its own listing.
- Binding Sale: All sales are binding. If you, as Seller, receive a purchase request (order) you are obligated to complete the transaction with the buyer in a prompt manner, unless there is an exceptional circumstance, such as: (a) Buyer fails to meet the terms of your listing (such as payment method), or (b) you cannot authenticate Buyer's identity. Seller is obligated to ship the order or otherwise complete the transaction with the buyer in a prompt manner.
- Return Policies. All Sellers are urged to outline return policies for their listing. Sellers must create reasonable policies in good faith and must abide by such policies. All return policies must comply with GetScents’ site-wide policies. Sellers are responsible for enforcing their own reasonable policies. GetScents reserves the right to request that a seller modify a listing return policy.
- Buyer and Seller Communication. Seller is responsible for providing support for any sale-related issues beyond functionality of the Site. As a condition of using the Site, Seller agrees to use his/her/its best efforts to offer support and assistance in the resolution of Buyers' concerns and disputes.
- Manipulation: The price stated in each GetScents listing must be an accurate representation of the sale. Manipulation refers to activities whereby the price no longer accurately represents the monetary value of the transaction. For example manipulative activities include, but are not limited to, intentionally stating one price in the item description but charging a higher price to the Buyer, altering the item's price prior to a sale for the purpose of avoiding GetScents transaction fees, and hacking into another’s account and altering prices. Neither Buyer nor Seller may manipulate the price of any item for any reason.
- No Infringement. Seller represents and warrants that its Content does not infringe any intellectual property rights of others. GetScents does not check user uploaded/created Content for appropriateness, violations of copyright, trademarks, patents, or other rights or violations. Reported violating content may be removed or disabled.
- Rejection or Removal of Listings. GetScents may, in its sole discretion and determination, reject or remove product listings without notice to the Seller.
Copyright and Intellectual Property Infringement Policy
For specific terms related to Intellectual Property rights and for reporting claims of copyright infringement (DMCA notices) or trademark infringement - please see GetScent’s Copyright and Intellectual Property Policy which forms an integral part of these Terms of Service. Note that it is our policy in appropriate circumstances to disable and/or terminate the accounts of users who are repeat infringers.
G. Fees Policy
Joining and creating a listing on the Site is free (excluding additional sales channels on GetScents that may have separate fees). GetScents may charge fees for listing an item for sale, as well as a fee for the sale price when the item sells. GetScents offers monthly subscription packages with different fees already included and additional benefits. These packages are automatically renewed and charged every month and can be cancelled at any time through the Site or through firstname.lastname@example.org. When you list an item, you have an opportunity to review and accept the fees that you will be charged. GetScents’ Fees Policy, which is subject to change at any time without notice to you, is incorporated into this Agreement by reference. Changes to the Fees Policy and the fees for GetScents’ services are effective upon being published on the Site. However, GetScents may choose to temporarily change the Fees Policy and the fees for GetScents’ services for promotional events (e.g., free listing days). Such changes are effective when GetScents posts the temporary promotional event on the Site. GetScents may, at GetScents’ sole discretion, change some or all of GetScents’ services at any time. In the event GetScents 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 the Site or any other GetScents Services.
H. Third-Party Sites and Information.
The Site may redirect or link to other websites on the Internet, or may otherwise include references to information, products or services made available by unaffiliated third parties. While GetScents makes every effort to work with trusted, reputable providers, from time to time such sites may contain information, material or policies that some may find inappropriate or personally objectionable. You understand and agree that GetScents is not responsible for the accuracy, completeness, decency or legality of content hosted by third party websites, nor is GetScents responsible for errors or omissions in any references made on those websites. The inclusion of such a link or reference is provided merely as a convenience and does not imply endorsement of, or association with the Site or party by GetScents, or any warranty of any kind, either express or implied.

- GetScents’ Grant of License in Favor of Seller. Subject to Seller’s compliance with the Terms and Conditions, this Agreement, and Seller’s payment of any applicable fees, GetScents or its content providers grant Seller a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable license to access and make use of the Site. This license does not include any derivative use of any GetScents Service or its contents; any downloading or copying of account information for the benefit of another user, seller, buyer or merchant; or any use of data mining, robots, or similar data gathering and extraction tools.

Seller may not misuse the Site or any GetScents Services. Seller may use the Site and any other GetScents Services only as permitted by law. The licenses granted by GetScents terminate if Seller does not comply with this Agreement.
- Re-Posting Content. By posting Content on the Site, it is possible for an outside website or a third party to re-post that Content. Seller agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold GetScents harmless for any dispute concerning this use. If Seller chooses to display its own GetScents-hosted image on another website, the image must provide a link back to its listing page on GetScents.
K. Resolution of Disputes and Release
- Time Limitation for Actions. Use of the Site is not authorized in any jurisdiction that does not give effect to all provisions of the Agreement, including without limitation, this section.
