Buyer-Specific Terms

As a condition for using the Services, in your capacity as a Buyer you understand and agree as follows:

  • You do not conduct any outside direct business transactions with any Manufacturer you identify and connect with through Marteu’s Services (where each instance of any such transaction is referred to as a “Direct Placement”).

  • Marteu will monitor all transactions occurring by and through parties using the Services, including all purchase order transactions between Buyers and Manufacturers to ensure no Direct Placement is taking place.

  • You have three (3) business days from the date of delivery of a Product to inspect a shipment and submit a potential complaint to the Manufacturer, where consistent with industry practices, it is anticipated that complaints, if any, will generally be focused on determining whether the Product is broken or of poor quality (by way of example only, fragile or easily broken, cracked or including flakes or specs where the intention is a solid color), missing or of insufficient quantity as set forth in the terms of the Product order, or quantity varies generally by more than three percent (3%) of ordered quantity.

  • In the event you fail to make a timely objection to any such Product within the aforesaid three (3) business day period, you waive any further objection or right of rescission, together with waiving any right to a refund, with regard to such Product and understand and agree that payment will automatically be dispersed to the Manufacturer from the escrow account.

  • In the event of a timely objection to any Product, and following an investigation (whether by Marteu or one of its third-party investigators) that concludes the Products are defective or otherwise do not meet the specifications set forth in a purchase order, you will receive a refund in accordance with the applicable Manufacturer and/or Marteu’s refund criteria, less any associated escrow and shipping and handling fees.

  • With regard to any refunds that are issued to you, you are solely responsible (at your cost and expense) for the disposal of any such not defective or otherwise unusable Product.

  • Marteu reserves the right to change or otherwise modify the Product inspection period at any time and from time to time.

  • With respect to cancelling an order for Product, if you cancel an order after the order after the Manufacturer has commenced its process to create and manufacture the Products, you may receive at most a partial refund. In order to compensate the manufacturer for any raw materials used and time invested.

  • With respect to any order for Product that is cancelled before the order reaches a status of ‘in production,’ you will receive a refund of the purchase price, less any fixed costs associated with each order, including the escrow fee.

  • Orders for Products shall not be cancelled once they have reached a status of shipped, where you will be responsible for receiving any such order at your designated delivery location.

  • Following a Manufacturer’s acceptance of an order, you cannot change or otherwise amend the contents of any such order.

  • Without obtaining any further consent or approval from you, during order Product process and fulfilment stages, you understand that Marteu reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cause to be dispersed any amounts from the escrow account for each Product to account and pay for insurance, shipping, and any other costs and expenses associated with the management and care of the shipment of a Product.

Manufacturer-Specific Terms

As a condition for using the Services, in your capacity as a Manufacturer you understand and agree as follows:

  • You will not conduct any Direct Placement with a Buyer.

  • Marteu will monitor all transactions occurring by and through parties using the Services, including all purchase order transactions between Manufacturers and Buyers to ensure no Direct Placement is taking place.

  • Subject to the general criteria set forth above in the Buyer-Specific Terms for complaints and defective or insufficient Products, Buyer will have three (3) business days to inspect shipment and submit a complaint to you.

  • Marteu reserves the right to cause a refund to be delivered to Buyers if your delivery does not meet the criteria set forth in the Buyer’s order (which includes, but is not limited to, delivering well-packed (unbroken) and correct Product per the specifications set forth in the order).

  • In the event a delivered order does not meet the criteria set forth in the Buyer’s order, you understand and agree that you may only receive partial compensation or no compensation at all.

  • With respect to the determination of whether to issue a refund, you agree that Marteu will be the sole arbiter on whether and to what extent to issue a refund, where factors to be considered in making this determination may include reviewing any and all evidence and images provided by you, the Buyer, and any quality control teams that are potentially involved in order.

  • In the event a refund is issued to the Buyer, you understand that the Buyer will dispose of any incorrect or broken Product and materials and that such portion of the Product shall not be returned to you.

  • Without limiting any of the foregoing, in the event a refund is issued to a Buyer, Marteu reserves the right (at Marteu’s election) to potentially cause to be deducted from payment on your next order (regardless whether this is the same or a new Buyer) or charge you directly for any liabilities incurred by the Buyer that was issued by the refund and resulting from the disposal of any such unusable Products.

  • Marteu reserves the right to modify product prices equally for all manufacturers in order to compensate for shipping and insurance costs associated with different buyer locations.

  • Selling on Marteu does not legally exempt you from any preexisting exclusivity contracts, and other contracts, that you are currently engaged in. Therefore, you acknowledge and agree that it is your sole legal obligation and responsibility to honor any such agreements when selling any Products through the Marteu Services.

  • You are solely responsible for ensuring that your Products, your description and depiction of said Products on the Marteu platform, together with the sale and delivery of all such Products complies at all times with all applicable laws, rules and regulations.

  • The Products you display on your profile within the platform must reflect the actual products and designs that you are currently offering.
