4. Marketplace terms
a. Product availability.

All prices are quoted in United States Dollars and are subject to change without notice. Product pricing and availability may vary based on the location and network access of the user. We reserve the right to impose purchase restrictions or limits at any time, and we may pass on surcharges or markups. Product pricing may not include the cost of shipping and handling. See Shipping and Logistics section below.

b. Pricing. The final price of any Product listed by a Seller on the Services will be an amount including all of the following: (i) the price of the Product as established by the Seller (the “Product Price”), (ii) a markup determined by us representing the fees for administering the platform, as applicable, (iii) applicable taxes, and (iv) shipping and handling fees, as shown on the Services (collectively, the “Total Price”).

c. Listing options.When listing a Product, the Seller may be able to market a listing (i) to the Seller’s own internal network and/or (ii) through our network (a “Public Listing”). The Seller’s identity will be anonymous for Public Listings; however, you as the Buyer acknowledge and agree that any Order for a Product on a Public Listing is still a contract between you and the applicable Seller. If you are the Seller on a Public Listing, you acknowledge and agree that we may, in our discretion, to facilitate the resolution of disputes or for another reason, disclose your identity to Buyers or prospective purchasers of the applicable Products.

d. Payment methods. You represent and warrant that you are the owner of, or for an organizational account, have the right to use, any Linked Account or other means of payment you provide to us and/or the Financial Institution. All billing information you provide to us must be truthful and accurate. Providing any untruthful or inaccurate information is a breach of these Terms and may result in cancellation of your Order or termination of your membership or other use of the Services. We may also, in our sole discretion: (i) request additional information from you prior to accepting an Order, (ii) verify information prior to processing any Order or purchase, or (iii) refuse or cancel an Order for any reason including limitations on quantities available for purchase, inaccuracies, or errors in Product or pricing information, or problems identified by us related to credit or fraud. We reserve the right, including without prior notice, to limit the quantity of items purchased per person, per household, or per Order for any reason. We also reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to prohibit sales to dealers or resellers.

e. Taxes. Depending on your business status and location, we may be required to collect any applicable taxes, duties, or levies and remit them to the relevant tax authorities. If we are required under tax laws or regulations to report sales-related information, you agree to provide such information to us. If required in the applicable jurisdictions, we reserve the right to collect any taxes from the Buyer or Seller and pay such taxes to the relevant tax authority.

f. Payment terms. Each Order will include payment terms agreed by the Buyer and Seller regarding when the Buyer will deliver payment to the Seller for the Order (the “Payment Terms”). The date of payment to the Seller will be either immediate or NetX, where X represents the number of days after the sale takes place. The Financial Institution, not BluePallet, provides the payment processing and funds transfer service to facilitate payment to the Seller in accordance with the Payment Terms. Blue Pallet’s services are limited to the transmission of data and other ancillary services.

As a Buyer, you agree that by placing an Order and agreeing to the Payment Terms, you are instructing and authorizing the Financial Institution to debit your Linked Account for the Total Price as of the date agreed pursuant to the Payment Terms and to transfer such amount (net taxes, shipping and handling, and fees owed to BluePallet, which shall be paid to BluePallet or other third parties, as applicable) to the Seller. You authorize BluePallet to transmit your instructions to the Financial Institution to enable the Financial Institution to engage in such funds transfer. You agree that you will not, under any circumstances, issue or threaten to issue any chargebacks, stop payment, or similar restriction or retraction of payment (collectively a “Stop Payment”) made to the Seller or BluePallet through yourLinked Account or Financial Institution for any reason whatsoever related to the Services after your Order has been delivered. In the event of a StopPayment following delivery, BluePallet reserves the right to report your LinkedAccount to the credit bureaus as a delinquent account and you agree thatBluePallet shall have the right to charge your Linked Account for all delinquent amounts along with interest at the highest rate permitted by applicable law, as well as for any costs of recouping such amounts, including, without limitation, collection and attorneys’ fees. You agree that such costs and damages suffered by BluePallet by a Stop Payment by their nature are difficult to ascertain, and BluePallet may charge at least one-thousand $1000 dollars as part of such recoupment.

If offered through the Services, Buyers and Sellers may also agree that the Buyer shall provide proof of funds by immediately transferring the Total Price from theBuyer’s Linked Account to a deposit account (the "Deposit Account") and maintaining such funds in the Deposit Account during the period of time between the Order date and the date upon which the Buyer has agreed to make payment to the Seller (“Deferred Payment”). We do not guarantee that this feature will be available for any given Order, and this payment option may not be available for your Order.

If the Buyer and Seller agree to Deferred Payment, by placing the Order and agreeing to such Payment Terms the Buyer authorizes the Financial Institution to immediately debit the Buyer’s Linked Account and to transfer such funds to a Deposit Account and for Buyer to not withdraw such funds unless the Buyer andSeller have agreed to cancel the Order, or otherwise pursuant to these Terms.The Buyer further authorizes the Financial Institution, upon Net X, to transfer the funds from the Buyer’s Deposit Account to the Seller (minus taxes, shipping and handling and the fees owed to BluePallet, which shall be paid to BluePallet or other third parties, as applicable). BluePallet will transmit the instructions and other applicable data to the Financial Institution on behalf of the Buyer.

If the Buyer has insufficient funds or otherwise fails to deliver full payment in accordance with the Payment Terms, we may defer or cancel further shipments or other Orders, cancel any portion of an unshipped Order, or suspend or terminate the Buyer’s account. You further agree that you are liable to BluePallet, and shall pay BluePallet promptly upon demand, any amount due from BluePallet to any third party arising from or related to your use of the Services including (i) any payment for an Order, whether or not authorized by you, (ii) any reversal, return, adjustment or rejection thereof, or (iii) any act or omission of yours, including your failure to have sufficient funds in your Linked Account to make a payment for an Order or any reversal, return, adjustment or rejection thereof.

g. Binding Sale. Once an Order is placed by a Buyer and the Seller accepts such Order, each such Buyer and Seller will be deemed to have entered into a binding sale and purchase agreement with one another subject to these Terms unless the Buyer and Seller enter into a separate written agreement and provide notice of that fact to BluePallet. The payment information provided by Buyer will be processed by Financial Institution to remit payment in the amount of the Order. All such sales are binding. Each Buyer who places an Order with respect to any Seller’s listing, thereby agrees to accept and pay for the Products, as well as all applicable shipping and handling charges and taxes.

h. Shipping and Logistics. All shipments of Products will be made ‘Free Carrier’ or ‘FCA’ (the Seller’s location), where the Buyer takes responsibility for the shipment upon leaving the Seller’s warehouse or site. At the time of checkout, a Buyer has the option to either (i) arrange for shipment of the Order using the Buyer’s own carrier of choice or (ii) for an additional fee, as shown on the Services, use one of the following: BluePallet's logistics service , Priority1 logistics service, Axle Logistics Services, or GlobalTranz.  If you opt to use the Logistics Service for an Order, the terms and conditions for such services are available within links above. These terms will apply and take precedence over these Terms where the two are inconsistent in relation to the shipment of the Order to which they apply. If you opt to arrange for shipment of the Order yourself, you agree that you must arrange for the Product to be picked up within 15 days of the date of the Order (or within another time frame if noted on the Services) to avoid additional fees and/or the cancellation of the Order. If you select the Logistics Service for an Order, you acknowledge and agree that any dispute regarding the fulfillment of the Logistics Service is between you and chosen logistics provider and not between you and us, and you agree to indemnify and hold us harmless from and against any dispute, claim, or action related to the Logistics Service.

i. Damaged shipments. You agree to check your Order for damage immediately upon arrival and note any damage on the delivery receipt. You must notify us of any shortage or damage within five (5) business days of receipt by emailing support@bluepallet.io or calling us at 512-686-3450. You agree to provide, upon our request, evidence to corroborate such shortage or damage to our satisfaction including, without limitation, photographs thereof.

j. Disputes and Dispute Resolution. If a Product is (i) of poor quality, (ii) of incorrect quantity, or (iii) not as described in Seller’s listing, Buyer must notify us within five (5) business days of delivery by initiating a dispute from your Account or by calling us at 512-686-3450. We cannot facilitate any dispute resolution if we are not contacted within that window. No refunds will be available for any cancellation of an Order by Buyer unless one of the conditions in the preceding clauses (i) through (iii) are notified and demonstrated.

We, for the benefit of users, may elect to assist users to resolve disputes; however, we do so in our sole and exclusive discretion, and we undertake no formal obligation to resolve disputes between users or between users and outside parties. To the extent that we attempt to resolve such disputes: (a) we do so in good faith and based solely on our policies. We will not make judgments regarding legal issues or claims, and (b) each affected user shall promptly respond (in any event within three (3) calendar days) to all requests from us as well as cooperate with us with respect to any such dispute. In the event the dispute remains unresolved, we will have the right, but not obligation, to step in and determine how the dispute should be resolved, including, without limitation, issuing a refund, reversing a sale, or requiring the purchasing Buyer to pay for the items in question. As between you and us, you agree that our determination of any dispute is final.

19. Dispute Resolution
Please read this section carefully. It contains procedures for mandatory binding arbitration and a class action waiver.

a. Notice Requirement and Informal Dispute Resolution.

Before either we or you may seek arbitration for a dispute, the party seeking arbitration must send the other party a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”)describing the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and the requested relief. A Notice to us should be sent to: BluePallet, 5501 Balcones Drive#162A, Austin, TX, 78731. After the Notice is received, you and we may attempt to resolve the claim or dispute informally. If we do not resolve the claim or dispute within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received, either party may begin an arbitration proceeding. The amount of any settlement offer made by any party may not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator has determined the amount of the award, if any, to which either party is entitled.Nothing in the foregoing shall be construed to limit or replace any other remedy granted to us in these Terms, including, without limitation, the right to terminate or suspend your Account in the event of a violation of any of our policies or rules.

b. Arbitration Rules.

Arbitration shall be initiated through the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), an established alternative dispute resolution provider (“ADR Provider”) that offers arbitration as set forth in this section. If AAA is not available to arbitrate, the parties shall agree to select an alternative ADR Provider. The rules of the ADR Provider shall govern all aspects of the arbitration, including but not limited to the method of initiating and/or demanding arbitration, except to the extent such rules are in conflict with the Terms. The AAA Commercial Arbitration Rules (the “Arbitration Rules”) governing the arbitration are available online at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. The arbitration shall be conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator. Any claims or disputes where the total amount of the award sought is less than Ten Thousand U.S. Dollars (US $10,000.00) shall be resolved through binding non-appearance based arbitration. For claims or disputes where the total amount of the award sought is Ten Thousand U.S. Dollars (US $10,000.00) or more, the right to a hearing will be determined by the Arbitration Rules. Any hearing will be held in Austin, Texas, unless the parties agree otherwise. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Each party shall bear its own costs (including attorney’s fees) and disbursements arising out of the arbitration and shall pay an equal share of the fees and costs of the ADR Provider.

c. Additional rules for non-appearance based arbitration.

The arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online, and/or based solely on written submissions; the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration. The arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise agreed by the parties.

d. Time Limits.

If either you or we pursue arbitration, the arbitration action must be initiated and/or demanded within the statute of limitations (i.e., the legal deadline for filing a claim) and within any deadline imposed under the AAA Rules for the pertinent claim.

e. Authority of Arbitrator.

If arbitration is initiated, the arbitrator will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of the parties involved, and the dispute will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages, and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the Arbitration Rules, and these Terms. The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and us.

f. Waiver of Jury Trial.

THE PARTIES HEREBY WAIVE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL AND STATUTORY RIGHTS TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE A TRIAL IN FRONT OF A JUDGE OR A JURY, instead electing that all claims and disputes shall be resolved by arbitration under these terms. Arbitration procedures are typically more limited, more efficient and less costly than rules applicable in a court and are subject to very limited review by a court. In the event any litigation should arise between you and us in any state or federal court in a suit to vacate or enforce an arbitration award or otherwise, YOU AND WE WAIVE

ALL RIGHTS TO A JURY TRIAL, instead electing that the dispute be resolved by a judge. g. Waiver of Class or Consolidated Actions.


h. Confidentiality.

All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, including but not limited to the award of the arbitrator and compliance therewith, shall be strictly confidential. You agree to maintain confidentiality unless otherwise required by law. This paragraph shall not prevent a party from submitting to a court of law any information necessary to enforce this Section 19, to enforce an arbitration award, or to seek injunctive or equitable relief.

i. Severability.

If any part or parts of this Section 19 are found under the law to be invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, then such specific part or parts shall be of no force and effect and shall be severed and the remainder of this Section 19 shall continue in full force and effect.

j. Right to Waive.  

Any or all of the rights and limitations set forth in this Section 19 may be waived by the party against whom the claim is asserted. Such waiver shall not waive or affect any other portion of this Section 19.

k. Survival of Agreement.

This Section 19 will survive the termination of your relationship with us.

l. Small Claims Court.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, either you or we may bring an individual action in small claims court.

m. Emergency Equitable Relief.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may seek emergency equitable relief before a state or federal court in order to maintain the status quo pending arbitration. A request for interim measures shall not be deemed a waiver of any other rights or obligations under this Section 19.

n. Claims Not Subject to Arbitration.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, claims of defamation, violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, and infringement or misappropriation of our patent, copyright, trademark, or trade secrets rights shall not be subject to this Section 19.
