Welcome to Lilyshop. By using the website and services offered by Lilyshop Inc. (“Lilyshop”), you agree to the following terms with Lilyshop Inc. This agreement sets forth the legally binding terms and conditions for your use of the website at http://www.lilyshop.com (the “site”) and all services provided by Lilyshop on the site. If you have any questions, please refer to our help section of the site.
This Agreement is effective on January 1, 2012, for current users, and upon acceptance for new users.
Lilyshop is a Venue
Lilyshop acts as a venue to allow users to offer, sell and buy handmade goods, vintage items, and supplies within a fixed-price format. Lilyshop is not directly involved in the transaction between the buyers and the seller. As a result, Lilyshop has no control over the quality, safety, morality or legality of any aspect of the items listed, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of sellers to sell items or the ability of buyers to pay for items. Lilyshop does not pre-screen users or the content or information provided by users. Lilyshop cannot ensure that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction.
Consequently, Lilyshop does not transfer legal ownership of items from the seller to the buyer.
Lilyshop cannot guarantee the true identity, age, and nationality of a user. Lilyshop encourages you to communicate directly with potential transaction partners through the tools available on the Lilyshop site. You may also choose to consider using a third-party escrow service or services that provide additional user verification.
You and Lilyshop are independent contractors, and no agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer or franchiser-franchisee relationship is intended or created by this Agreement.
You agree that Lilyshop is a venue and as such is not responsible or liable for any content, for example, data, text, information, usernames, graphics, images, photographs, profiles, audio, video, items, and links posted by you, other users, or outside parties on Lilyshop. You use the Lilyshop service at your own risk.
While using the Lilyshop site, Lilyshop services and tools, you will NOT:
Post content or items in an inappropriate category or areas on our sites and services;
Violate any laws, third party rights or Lilyshop policies, such as the Do’s and Don’ts.
Use our site, services or tools if you are not able to form legally binding contracts, are under the age of 18, or are temporarily or indefinitely suspended from using our sites, services or tools.
Fail to deliver payment for items purchased by you, unless the seller has materially changed the item's description after you have purchased or a clear typographical error is made.
Fail to deliver items purchased from you, unless the buyer fails to meet the posted terms
Manipulate the price of any item or interfere with other users' listings.
Circumvent or manipulate our fee structure, the billing process, or fees owed to Lilyshop;
Post false, inaccurate, misleading, defamatory, or libelous content (including personal information).
“Stalk” or otherwise harass anyone
Take any action that may undermine the feedback or ratings systems (such as displaying, importing or exporting feedback information off of the sites or using it for purposes unrelated to Lilyshop).
Transfer your Lilyshop account (including feedback) and User ID to another party without our consent.
Distribute or post spam, unsolicited, or bulk electronic communications, chain letters, or pyramid schemes.
Post, email, or otherwise make available content that harasses, degrades, intimidates or is hateful toward an individual or group of individuals on the basis of religion, gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, age, or disability
Distribute viruses or any other technologies that may harm Lilyshop, or the interests or property of Lilyshop users.
Collect personal data or user email addresses without their consent.
By listing an item on the Lilyshop site, you agree to pay Lilyshop’s fees (the 5% commission) for such, assume full responsibility for the content of the listing and item offered, and accept the following listing conditions: When you list an item on Lilyshop’s site, your listing will be posted on Lilyshop’s sites and can be viewed in My Lilyshop. Your listing may not be immediately searchable by keyword or category for several hours (or up to 24 hours in some circumstances), so Lilyshop can’t guarantee exact listing durations. You also warrant that you and all aspects of the item comply with Lilyshop's published policies and that you may legally sell the item. You must accurately describe your item and all terms of sale in your Lilyshop shop. All items must be listed in an appropriate category with appropriate tags. Each listing must accurately and completely describe the item/items for sale in that listing. If the "in stock" quantity is more than one, all items in that listing must be identical. Each unique item must have its own listing.
If Lilyshop users are found abusing the Lilyshop site, services, and tools we may limit, suspend or terminate our service and user accounts, prohibit access to our site and the content, services and tools, delay or remove hosted content, and take technical and legal steps to keep users off the site if we think that they are creating problems or possible legal liabilities, infringing the intellectual property rights of third parties, or acting inconsistently with the letter or spirit of our policies. We may also, at our discretion, suspend or terminate accounts of users who may be repeat infringers of intellectual property rights of third parties. We reserve the right to cancel unconfirmed accounts as well as accounts that have been inactive for a long period of time, or to modify or discontinue the Lilyshop site, services or tools. Lilyshop also reserves the right to refuse service to anyone, for any reason, at any time.
Please report and problems, offensive content, and policy violations to Lilyshop immediately.
Limitation of Liability
You will not hold Lilyshop responsible for other users' content, actions or inactions, items they list or their destruction of allegedly fake items. Our site is a venue to allow anyone to offer, sell, and buy handmade goods, vintage items, and supplies at anytime, from anywhere in the U.S., in a fixed price format. We are not involved in the actual transaction between buyers and sellers. While we may help facilitate the resolution of disputes, we have no control over and do not guarantee the quality, safety or legality of items advertised, the truth or accuracy of users’ content or listings, the ability of sellers to sell items, the ability of buyers to pay for items, or that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction or return an item.
We do not transfer legal ownership of items from the seller to the buyer. California Commercial Code § 2401(2) and Uniform Commercial Code § 2-401(2) applies to the transfer of ownership between the buyer and the seller, unless the buyer and the seller agree otherwise. Further, we cannot guarantee continuous or secure access to our site, services or tools, and operation of our site, services or tools may be interfered with by numerous factors outside of our control. Accordingly, to the extent legally permitted, we exclude all implied warranties, terms and conditions. We are not liable for any loss of money, goodwill or reputation, or any special, indirect or consequential damages arising, directly or indirectly, out of your use of oryour inability to use our site, services and tools.
If you have a dispute with one or more users, you release us (and our officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code §1542, which says: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor."
No agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer or franchiser-franchisee relationship is intended or created by this Agreement.
Fees and Services
Lilyshop does NOT charge a monthly fee for setting up a shop nor does Lilyshop charge listing fees or re-listing fees. Lilyshop ONLY charges a 5% sales fee if you sell an item. Lilyshop’s Fee Policy is subject to change at any time and is incorporated into this Agreement by reference. Changes to the Fee Policy and the fees for Lilyshop's services are effective after Lilyshop provides you with at least fourteen (14) days' notice by posting the changes on the Site. Lilyshop may choose to temporarily change the fees for promotional events such changes are effective when Lilyshop posts the temporary promotional event on the Site. Lilyshop may, at Lilyshop's sole discretion, change some or all of Lilyshop's services at any time. In the event Lilyshop introduces a new service, the fees for that service are effective at the launch of the service. Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted in US Dollars (USD).
You are responsible for paying all fees and applicable taxes associated with using Lilyshop. Lilyshop keeps accepted payment information on file. At the beginning of the month, each seller is emailed an invoice detailing the amount due. A seller must pay the amount due in full within 15 days of the date of the invoice.
If Lilyshop terminates a listing or chooses to terminate your account, if you close your account, or if the payment of your Lilyshop fees cannot be completed for any reason, you remain obligated to pay Lilyshop for all unpaid fees plus any penalties, if applicable. If the shopkeeper’s account is not paid in full and becomes past due, the shopkeeper risks suspension of privileges and/or termination of the account and other collection mechanisms (including retaining collection agencies and legal counsel).

(Arbitration Option) For any claim (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) where the total amount of the award sought is less than $10,000, the party requesting relief may elect to resolve the dispute in a cost effective manner through binding non-appearance-based arbitration. In the event a party elects arbitration, they shall initiate such arbitration through an established alternative dispute resolution ("ADR") provider mutually agreed upon by the parties. The ADR provider and the parties must comply with the following rules: (a) the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions, the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration; (b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties; and (c) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
(Improperly Filed Claims) All claims you bring against Lilyshop must be resolved in accordance with this Legal Disputes Section. All claims filed or brought contrary to the Legal Disputes Section shall be considered improperly filed. Should you file a claim contrary to the Legal Disputes Section, Lilyshop may recover attorneys' fees and costs up to $1000, provided that Lilyshop has notified you in writing of the improperly filed claim, and you have failed to promptly withdraw the claim. Lilyshop will not make judgments regarding legal issues or claims.
