By using Gucopia Services, you agree to these conditions. Please read them carefully.
We offer a wide range of Gucopia Services, and sometimes additional terms may apply. When you use a Gucopia Service you also will be subject to the guidelines, terms and agreements applicable to that Gucopia Service (“Service Terms”). If these Conditions of Use are inconsistent with the Service Terms, those Service Terms will control.
Please review our Privacy Notice, which also governs your use of Gucopia Services, to understand our practices.
When you use Gucopia Services, or send e-mails, text messages, and other communications from your desktop or mobile device to us, you may be communicating with us electronically. You consent to receive communications from us electronically, such as e-mails, texts, mobile push notices, or notices and messages on this site or through the other Gucopia Services, such as our Message Center, and you can retain copies of these communications for your records. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
All content included in or made available through any Gucopia Service, such as text, graphics, logos, button icons, images, audio clips, digital downloads, data compilations, and software is the property of Gucopia or its content suppliers and protected by international copyright laws. The compilation of all content included in or made available through any Gucopia Service is the exclusive property of Gucopia and protected by international copyright laws.
LICENSE AND ACCESS
Subject to your compliance with these Conditions of Use and any Service Terms, and your payment of any applicable fees, Gucopia or its content providers grant you a limited, non-exclusive, nontransferable, non-sublicensable license to access. The implementation of a fee for the use of this license due to market circumstances or implementation of extra features and software upgrades is at the sole discretion of GuCopia. Gucopia or its content providers grant you a personal and non-commercial use of the Gucopia Services. This license does not include any resale or commercial use of any Gucopia Service, or its contents; any collection and use of any product listings, descriptions, or prices; any derivative use of any Gucopia Service or its contents; any downloading, copying, or other use of account information for the benefit of any third party; or any use of data mining, robots, or similar data gathering and extraction tools. All rights not expressly granted to you in these Conditions of Use or any Service Terms are reserved and retained by Gucopia or its licensors, suppliers, publishers, rightsholders, or other content providers. No Gucopia Service, nor any part of any Gucopia Service, may be reproduced, duplicated, copied, sold, resold, visited, or otherwise exploited for any commercial purpose without express written consent of Gucopia. You may not frame or utilize framing techniques to enclose any trademark, logo, or other proprietary information (including images, text, page layout, or form) of Gucopia without express written consent. You may not use any meta tags or any other “hidden text” utilizing Gucopia’s name or trademarks without the express written consent of Gucopia. You may not misuse the Gucopia Services. You may use the Gucopia Services only as permitted by law. The licenses granted by Gucopia terminate if you do not comply with these Conditions of Use or any Service Terms.
You may need your own Gucopia account to use Gucopia Services, you need to be at least 18 years of age, and you may be required to be logged in to the account and have a valid payment method associated with it if necessary. If there is a problem charging your selected payment method, we may charge any other valid payment method associated with your account. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for restricting access to your account, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password. Gucopia does not sell products. GuCopia facilitates the ordering and administration process for it’s suppliers. The relationship between buyer and supplier is direct and supplier is responsible for product, delivery and payment follow up. Validating an order is equal to signing a contract and means you are obliged to fulfil this agreement. If you are under 18, you may use the Gucopia Services only with involvement of a parent or guardian. Parents and guardians may create profiles for teenagers in their Gucopia Household. Alcohol listings on Gucopia are intended for adults. You must be at least 18 years of age to purchase alcohol, or use any site functionality related to alcohol. Gucopia reserves the right to refuse service, terminate accounts, terminate your rights to use Gucopia Services, remove or edit content, or cancel orders in its sole discretion.
REVIEWS, COMMENTS, COMMUNICATIONS, AND OTHER CONTENT
You may post reviews, comments, photos, videos, and other content; send e-cards and other communications; and submit suggestions, ideas, comments, questions, or other information, so long as the content is not illegal, obscene, threatening, defamatory, invasive of privacy, infringing of intellectual property rights (including publicity rights), or otherwise injurious to third parties or objectionable, and does not consist of or contain software viruses, political campaigning, commercial solicitation, chain letters, mass mailings, or any form of “spam” or unsolicited commercial electronic messages. You may not use a false e-mail address, impersonate any person or entity, or otherwise mislead as to the origin of a card or other content. Gucopia reserves the right (but not the obligation) to remove or edit such content, but does not regularly review posted content.
If you do post content or submit material, and unless we indicate otherwise, you grant Gucopia a nonexclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, and fully sublicensable right to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, perform, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, and display such content throughout the world in any media. You grant Gucopia and sublicensees the right to use the name that you submit in connection with such content, if they choose. You represent and warrant that you own or otherwise control all of the rights to the content that you post; that the content is accurate; that use of the content you supply does not violate this policy and will not cause injury to any person or entity; and that you will indemnify Gucopia for all claims resulting from content you supply. Gucopia has the right but not the obligation to monitor and edit or remove any activity or content. Gucopia takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any content posted by you or any third party.
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY COMPLAINTS
Gucopia respects the intellectual property of others. If you believe that your intellectual property rights are being infringed, please send an email to IP@gucopia.com.
RISK OF LOSS
All purchases of physical items from Gucopia are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier.
RETURNS, REFUNDS AND TITLE
Gucopia does not take title to returned items until the item arrives at our fulfillment center. At our discretion, a refund may be issued without requiring a return. In this situation, Gucopia does not take title to the refunded item.
Gucopia attempts to be as accurate as possible. However, Gucopia does not warrant that product descriptions or other content of any Gucopia Service is accurate, complete, reliable, current, or errorfree. If a product offered by Gucopia itself is not as described, your sole remedy is to return it in unused condition.
“List Price” means the suggested retail price of a product as provided by a manufacturer, supplier, or seller. We regularly check List Prices against prices recently found on Gucopia and other retailers. Certain products may have a “Was Price” displayed, which is determined using recent price history of the product on Gucopia.
With respect to items sold by Gucopia, we cannot confirm the price of an item until you order. Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items in our catalog may be mispriced. If the correct price of an item sold by Gucopia is higher than our stated price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before shipping or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation. Other merchants may follow different policies in the event of a mispriced item.
When you use apps created by Gucopia, such as the Gucopia App, you may grant certain permissions to us for your device. Most mobile devices provide you with information about these permissions.
SANCTIONS AND EXPORT POLICY
You may not use any Gucopia Service if you are the subject of Belgian sanctions or of sanctions consistent with Belgian law imposed by the governments of the country where you are using Gucopia Services. You must comply with all Belgian or other export and re-export restrictions that may apply to goods, software (including Gucopia Software), technology, and services.
Parties other than Gucopia operate stores, provide services or software, or sell product lines through the Gucopia Services. In addition, we provide links to the sites of affiliated companies and certain other businesses. If you purchase any of the products or services offered by these businesses or individuals, you are purchasing directly from those third parties, not from Gucopia. We are not responsible for examining or evaluating, and we do not warrant, the offerings of any of these businesses or individuals (including the content of their Web sites). Gucopia does not assume any responsibility or liability for the actions, product, and content of all these and any other third parties. You should carefully review their privacy statements and other conditions of use.
DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
THE GUCOPIA SERVICES AND ALL INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) AND OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE GUCOPIA SERVICES ARE PROVIDED BY GUCOPIA ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING. GUCOPIA MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO THE OPERATION OF THE GUCOPIA SERVICES, OR THE INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE GUCOPIA SERVICES, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING. YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE THAT YOUR USE OF THE GUCOPIA SERVICES IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK.
TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, GUCOPIA DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. GUCOPIA DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE GUCOPIA SERVICES, INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH THE GUCOPIA SERVICES, GUCOPIA’S SERVERS OR ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS SENT FROM GUCOPIA ARE FREE OF VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS. TO THE FULL EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW, GUCOPIA WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES OF ANY KIND ARISING FROM THE USE OF ANY GUCOPIA SERVICE, OR FROM ANY INFORMATION, CONTENT, MATERIALS, PRODUCTS (INCLUDING SOFTWARE) OR OTHER SERVICES INCLUDED ON OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU THROUGH ANY GUCOPIA SERVICE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, AND CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED IN WRITING.
Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of any Gucopia Service, or to any products or services sold or distributed by Gucopia or through Gucopia.com will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement.
There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Conditions of Use as a court would.
We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
By using any Gucopia Service, you agree that federal law, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Conditions of Use and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and Gucopia.
SITE POLICIES, MODIFICATION, AND SEVERABILITY
Please review our other policies, posted on this site. These policies also govern your use of Gucopia Services. We reserve the right to make changes to our site, policies, Service Terms, and these Conditions of Use at any time. If any of these conditions shall be deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that condition shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining condition.
