THE SECTIONS BELOW TITLED “BINDING ARBITRATION” AND “CLASS ACTION WAIVER” CONTAIN A BINDING ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER. THEY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS. PLEASE READ THEM.
If you accept or agree to this Agreement on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that company or other legal entity to the Agreement and, in such event, “you” and “your” will refer and apply to that company or other legal entity.
We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to modify, discontinue, or terminate the Services, or to modify the Agreement, at any time and without prior notice. If we modify the Agreement, we will post the modification on the Services. By continuing to access or use the Services after we have posted a modification on the Services, you are indicating that you agree to be bound by the modified Agreement. If the modified Agreement is not acceptable to you, your only recourse is to cease using the Services.
1. DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES
The Services enable a person (the “Gift Sender”) to select and purchase a gift for another person (the “Gift Recipient”) from ecommerce store(s) operated by merchants (each, a “Merchant Store”) that have entered into an agreement with Zest (each, a “Merchant”). The Gift Sender may select one or more products that are available for purchase on the Merchant Store (each, a “Product”) as a gift for the Gift Recipient. Once the Gift Recipient accepts the Product selected by the Gift Sender, the Product shall be called as the “Gift”. The Gift Sender can select the manner in which the Gift Sender would like to notify the Gift Recipient about the Gift which may include but shall not be limited to, text message, or sharing a link. The Services may allow the Gift Sender to give the Gift Recipient a chance to confirm or swap their Gift.
Upon receipt of the Gift notice, the Gift Recipient may need to accept the Gift. The Gift Recipient may have the option to swap the Gift, if the option is selected by the Gift Sender. Once the Gift Recipient accepts the Gift, the Gift Recipient may be asked to provide his/her shipping information and contact information to receive updates about the Gift. Once the Gift Recipient provides this information, the Gift Sender shall receive a notification to complete payment for the Gift. The Gift Sender is solely responsible for paying for the Gift by completing the payment on the Merchant Store.
Zest is not responsible or liable for any incorrect contact or other information provided by the Gift Sender or the Gift Recipient.
2. MERCHANT RESPONSIBILITIES
You agree that the Merchant is solely responsible for: (i) the Products made available by Merchant on the Merchant Stores; (ii) collecting payment and related taxes with respect to the Products selected by the Gift Sender; (iii) processing any returns or exchanges and handling any complaints or inquiries from the Gift Senders and Gift Recipients, including but not limited to, any defects or other issues with respect to the Products; and (iv) shipping the Gifts to the Gift Recipients. Merchant shall be solely responsible for handling any questions or complaints relating to the Products, including but not limited to, any payment and shipping issues, returns or exchanges, and Product defects and all such questions or complaints should be directed to the Merchant, not Zest. The provision of Products shall be subject to Merchant’s terms and conditions, including but not limited to, Merchant’s shipping policy and returns policy.
