How the site, application and services work
The site, application and services can be used to facilitate the listing and ordering of coffees (also called listings). coffees are included in shops or auctions on the site, application and services by sellers. You may view listings as an unregistered visitor to the site, application and services; however, if you wish to order a coffee or create a listing, you must first register to create an CropConex account (defined below).
As stated above, CropConex makes available an online platform or marketplace with related technology for coffee buyers and sellers to meet online and arrange orders of coffees directly with each other. CropConex is not an seller or buyer of coffee. Unless explicitly specified otherwise in the CropConex platform, CropConex’s responsibilities are limited to: (i) facilitating the availability of the site, application and services.
PLEASE NOTE THAT, AS STATED ABOVE, THE SITE, APPLICATION AND SERVICES ARE INTENDED TO BE USED TO FACILITATE SELLERS AND BUYERS CONNECTING AND ORDERING COFFEES DIRECTLY WITH EACH OTHER. CROPCONEX CANNOT AND DOES NOT CONTROL THE CONTENT CONTAINED IN ANY LISTINGS AND THE CONDITION, LEGALITY OR SUITABILITY OF ANY COFFEES. CROPCONEX IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR AND DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL LIABILITY RELATED TO ANY AND ALL LISTINGS, SHOPS OR AUCTIONS. ACCORDINGLY, ANY ORDERS WILL BE MADE OR ACCEPTED AT THE MEMBER’S OWN RISK. Account Registration In order to access certain features of the site and application, and to order a coffee or create a listing, you must register to create an account (“CropConex account”) and become a member. You may register to join the services directly via the site or application or as described in this section.
Your CropConex account and your profile page will be created for your use of the site and application based upon the personal information you provide to us or that we obtain via your existing CropConex account. You may not have more than one (1) active CropConex account. You agree to provide accurate, current and complete information during the registration process and to update such information to keep it accurate, current and complete. CropConex reserves the right to suspend or terminate your CropConex account and your access to the site, application and services if you create more than one (1) CropConex account, or if any information provided during the registration process or thereafter proves to be inaccurate, fraudulent, not current or incomplete. You are responsible for safeguarding your password. You agree that you will not disclose your password to any third party and that you will take sole responsibility for any activities or actions under your CropConex account, whether or not you have authorized such activities or actions. You will immediately notify CropConex of any unauthorized use of your CropConex account.
As a member, you may create listings. To create a listing you must be verified by CropConex. You have to enter your phone number and within 48 hours you will get verified or rejected to sell on CropConex. listings can be made publicly available on one of your shops, can be added to auctions, or can be saved as draft via the site, application and services. Other members will be able to order your coffee via the site, application and services based upon the information provided in your listing. You understand and agree that once a buyer confirms an order for your coffee, you may not request the buyer pay a higher price than in the order confirmation.
You acknowledge and agree that you alone are responsible for any and all listings and member content you post. Please note that CropConex assumes no responsibility for a seller’s compliance with any agreements with or duties to third parties, applicable laws, rules and regulations. CropConex reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to remove or disable access to any listing for any reason, including listings that CropConex, in its sole discretion, considers to be objectionable for any reason, in violation of these terms or otherwise harmful to the site, application or services.
If you are a seller, you understand and agree that CropConex does not act as your contracting agent. If a buyer requests an order of your coffee, any agreement you enter into with such buyer is between you and the buyer and CropConex is not a party to it. When you create a listing, you may also choose to include a minimum order amount which must be met by the members who are eligible to request an order of your coffee. Any member wishing to order coffee with such requirements must meet these requirements.
CropConex offer sellers the option of having images of their origins. You agree that you alone are responsible for ensuring that your listing is accurately represented with origin images you own. You alone are responsible for using the images and you warrant that you will cease to use the images or any other images if such images cease to accurately represent your listing. You agree that CropConex may use the images for advertising, marketing, commercial and other business purposes in any media or platform, whether in relation to your listing or otherwise, without further notice or compensation.
Each seller that conducts an auction may have their own eligibility requirements that must be met in order for you to participate in that auction. You may be required to register and obtain approval in order to participate in a specific auction. Approval to participate in one auction does not guarantee approval to participate in any other auction, conducted either by that seller, or another seller. Each seller has sole discretion to refuse to approve your eligibility for any live auction.
Each seller may charge shipping, handling, and other fees. These fees are subject to change depending upon the seller and the particular coffee for sale, and are set by the seller.
CropConex is only a venue
Services. We are neither an auction house nor an auctioneer and are not conducting the Auctions. Our service allows you to participate in auctions conducted by the sellers. We are solely a passive conduit to facilitate communication between the buyer and the seller. We do not intend to create an agency relationship, nor is one created. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to change or discontinue some or all of our services at any time. Control. We have no control over the existence, quality, authenticity, safety or legality of the coffees advertised, the truth or accuracy of the sellers listings, the ability of the sellers to sell or the ability of buyers to buy items. We do not ensure that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction.
Release. In the event that you have a dispute with a seller, you release CropConex (and our officers, directors, agents, parent, subsidiaries, joint ventures, and employees) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. In entering into this release, you expressly waive any protections (whether statutory or otherwise) that would otherwise limit the coverage of this release to include only those claims which you may know or suspect to exist in your favor at the time of agreeing to this release.
Auction houses. sellers may from time to time list coffees for auction for approved and registered participants to bid on. Auction dates and times, as well as the number, character, and order and schedule of the coffees to be auctioned are set by the seller and are subject to change without notice. Individual lots may be modified or changed at any time. We do not control the information that is provided by sellers and which is made available through our system. We do not guarantee that the sellers maintain proper auctioneer’s licenses or comply with all applicable laws. Bidding, Buying and Conditions of Sale. The terms and conditions for participation in each auction and the conditions of sale specific to each Auction event for each seller will be posted by the seller (the tab “Auction Policies” in every auction). These Policies govern your bidding activity as well as your participation in an auction. The seller acts as an auctioneer and has the final determination with respect to the bidding on the coffee and the sale of the lot.
No warranty. WITHOUT LIMITING THE DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES CONTAINED IN THE USER AGREEMENT, WE DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR FREE, OR THAT BIDS WILL BE RECEIVED BY THE SELLER OR INFORMATION REGARDING CURRENT PRICE WILL BE TRANSMITTED IN A TIMELY FASHION, NOR DO WE GUARANTEE THE PERFORMANCE OF ANY OBLIGATIONS BY AN SELLER. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, WE SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIM ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF TITLE, MERCHANT ABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. Some jurisdictions do not allow the disclaimer of implied warranties, so the foregoing disclaimer may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may also have other legal rights which vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
Any references in the site, application or services to a member being “verified” (or similar language) only indicate that the member has completed a relevant verification process, and does not represent anything else. Any such description is not an endorsement, certification or guarantee by CropConex about any member, including of the member’s identity and whether the member is trustworthy, safe or suitable. Instead, any such description is intended to be useful information for you to evaluate when you make your own decisions about the identity and suitability of others whom you contact or interact with via the site, application and services. We therefore recommend that you always exercise due diligence and care when deciding whether to buy from a seller or to accept an order request from a Buyer, or to have any other interaction with any other member.
By using the site, application or services, you agree that any legal remedy or liability that you seek to obtain for actions or omissions of other members or other third parties will be limited to a claim against the particular members or other third parties who caused you harm. You agree not to attempt to impose liability on or seek any legal remedy from CropConexwith respect to such actions or omissions. Accordingly, we encourage you to communicate directly with other members on the site and services regarding any orders or listings made by you. This limitation shall not apply to any claim by a seller against CropConex regarding the remittance of payments received from a Buyer by CropConex on behalf of a seller, which instead shall be subject to the limitations described in the section below entitled “Limitation of liability”.
“Price” means the amounts that are due and payable by a Buyer in exchange for a coffee. The seller alone, and not CropConex, is responsible for the Prices for his or her listing.
“Seller fees” means the fee that CropConex charges a seller for the use of the services, which depends on different factors. Please contact help@CropConex.com to get more information about the seller fees.
“Auction fees” means the fees a seller has to pay for setting up an auction.
If you are a seller and an order is requested for your coffee via the site, application or services, you will be required to either confirm or reject the order request within the order request period, otherwise the order request will automatically expire. When an order is requested via the site, application or services, we will share with you (i) the first and last name of the buyer who has requested the order and his company and (ii) a link to the buyer’s CropConex account profile page. When you confirm an order requested by a buyer, CropConex will send you an email, text message or message via the application confirming such order.
Please note that CropConex charges seller fees for the creation of listings. You as a seller acknowledge and agree that CropConex reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to charge you for and collect fees from you for the creation of listings.
Orders for Buyers
The sellers, not CropConex, are solely responsible for honoring any confirmed orders and making available any coffees reserved through the site, application and services. If you, as a buyer, choose to enter into a transaction with a seller for the order of a coffee, you agree and understand that you will be required to enter into an agreement with the seller and you agree to accept any terms, conditions, rules and restrictions associated with such coffee imposed by the seller. You acknowledge and agree that you, and not CropConex, will be responsible for performing the obligations of any such agreements, that CropConex is not a party to such agreements, and that, with the exception of its payment obligations hereunder, CropConex disclaims all liability arising from or related to any such agreements.
The total estimated price will be displayed to a buyer before the buyer sends an order request to a seller. As noted above, the seller is required to either confirm or reject the order request within the order request period; otherwise, the requested order will be automatically cancelled. Once your order is confirmed by the seller you will receive a confirmation email summarizing your confirmed order.
In consideration for the use of CropConex’s online platform for auctions, CropConex charges the Auctions Fees. Please contact help@CropConexr.com to get more information about auction fees.
