1.1 We are KIDDYKIND Limited. Our company information is at the end of this document.
2.1 These are our terms and conditions which apply to our Service (explained below). They’re available in English only. We’ve tried to make them user-friendly but please note that the summaries/explanations for each section in capitals aren’t a substitute for the rest of the text. Please read the entire document carefully and contact us if anything is unclear. Please save a copy as we don’t file a copy specifically for the transaction with you. If you are unable to save a copy, please contact us at email@example.com and we can send a copy to you.
2.2 While these terms and conditions apply to all Users (unless otherwise stated), the Addendum to this document contains additional terms that apply only to Sellers. If there is a conflict, the Addendum takes priority.
2.3 Where you communicate with us on behalf of an organisation, you promise that you have authority to do so.
THIS SECTION EXPLAINS WHAT CERTAIN WORDS MEAN WHEREVER THEY ARE USED WITH A CAPITAL LETTER IN THIS DOCUMENT
THIS SECTION EXPLAINS HOW AND WHEN YOU BECOME LEGALLY BOUND BY A CONTRACT WITH US
4.1 By registering on our website, you enter a legal contract with us to use our platform Service (which is different from the Seller Contract between Seller and Buyer – see below).

5.1 We may change these terms and conditions by posting the new version on our website and, if the changes are important, by sending you an email or other message. We will give you reasonable notice before they take effect.
5.2 If you are a Buyer and you don’t agree to the new terms, you should end this contract as explained below before the new terms take effect.

THIS SECTION SETS OUT THE EXTENT TO WHICH YOU ARE ALLOWED TO USE OUR SERVICE
6.1 We grant you a limited personal non-transferable right to use our Service on any applicable device owned or controlled by you subject to these terms and conditions.
THIS SECTION EXPLAINS THE BEHAVIOUR AND OTHER REQUIREMENTS TO USE OUR SERVICE

7.3 You agree to ensure that any contact or other information that you supply to us is accurate and not misleading and you will tell us if there are any important changes.
THIS SECTION EXPLAINS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOUR PLATFORM CONTRACT WITH US AND YOUR SELLER CONTRACT WITH OTHER USERS. IT ALSO SETS OUT SOME IMPORTANT ASPECTS OF THE SELLER CONTRACT AS WELL AS OUR ROLE IN FACILITATING THAT CONTACT.
Forming a Seller Contract
8.1 Our Service is a neutral platform where independent Sellers can arrange to sell goods to Buyers. We do not sell those goods ourselves. Any Seller Contract is between the respective Seller and Buyer and the terms are for the parties to agree providing that they are consistent with this agreement. We are not a party to the Seller Contract itself. You acknowledge that any legal claim arising from breach of the Seller Contract is against the other party to the Seller Contract and not against us (KIDDYKIND).
8.2 The Buyer and Seller agree that the Seller Contract includes the standard Seller Terms shown on our Service.
8.3 You also separately agree with us that you will comply with each Seller Contract.
8.4 You agree that we are entitled at any time to end or suspend any Seller Contract by giving notice by email if we consider that either party has broken this platform contract or this platform contract ends or it is necessary to protect either party.
8.5 You agree to deal with other Users in a polite and courteous manner and to respond promptly to communications from other Users.
8.6 You agree to cooperate reasonably with the Buyer/Seller and to supply information that they reasonably request.
Complaints and disputes
8.7 If you have any complaint about another User, you must tell us immediately by email. We may in our discretion help to try and resolve the dispute, but we do not promise to get involved.
8.8 If we hold the Buyer payment for the relevant goods, we are entitled to adjudicate on the dispute if we wish. If so, we will tell you that we have taken on this role and our decision will be final. Our adjudication will relate only to allocation of the Buyer payment held by us and not any wider aspect of the dispute. We are entitled to allocate a full refund to the Buyer, to make full payment to the Seller or to split the payment between the parties as we consider appropriate. Both parties agree to provide reasonable co-operation including supply of any photos or documents that we reasonably request. We are entitled to set or extend any deadlines we consider appropriate whether to allow the parties to try and resolve the dispute themselves, to require production of information, to make our decision or otherwise. We have no legal liability to either party in relation to our role as adjudicator.
Not circumventing our platform
8.9 You agree not to use our platform with a view to dealing with other Users outside the platform.

ADDENDUM APPLYING ONLY TO SELLERS
26.1 Provided you have complied with your contract with us, we will take reasonable steps to pay you by whichever payment method we use the amount of the payment received from the Buyer less any deductions mentioned below. We will pay you 21 days after we receive the payment (or any alternative period we decide) or, if applicable, following resolution of any dispute that we opt to adjudicate (assuming we decide to make a payment to you).
26.2 We are entitled to deduct our commission plus any applicable VAT from any payment to you. Our commission is charged as a percentage of the total price including delivery and any applicable VAT. We may at any time change the amount of our fee. If so, we will give you at least 30 days’ notice by email. Any orders made from the start of your first subscription period after that 30-day period will be subject to our new commission (or the start of the second subscription period if it is too late for you to stop the current subscription period renewing when we tell you about the new commission).
26.3 We are also entitled to deduct the payment provider fee plus any applicable VAT charged to us for that transaction.
26.4 We are entitled in our discretion to refund to the Buyer on your behalf all or part of the Buyer payment insofar as the Buyer makes a complaint or raises a dispute or cancels the order within any applicable cancellation period or if we otherwise consider it appropriate to make such a refund in our discretion (which may be based on any cancellation policy which applies at that time). You are liable to pay any appropriate refund direct to the Buyer if the relevant Buyer payment has already been paid to you.
26.5 We are entitled to deduct from any payment due to you the amount of any chargeback which has arisen or which we consider is likely to occur (irrespective of whether the chargeback relates to the payment currently due). You agree to pay to us immediately on demand the amount of any chargeback relating to a payment which we have paid to you.
26.6 You are responsible for making up any shortfall arising from charges made by your bank.
26.7 You are responsible for taking your own tax advice and for charging and accounting for any VAT or other taxes due on sales made to Buyers. We are only responsible for accounting for any VAT on our fee that we charge to you.
27.1 Prices, subscription periods and payment methods are as explained on our Service.
27.2 You are legally committed to start paying us once we confirm your order.
27.3 Unless otherwise stated on our Service, the subscription price is based on the number of products you upload to our Service. For example, a single T-shirt with a particular design counts as a single product, irrespective of the number of sizes or colours available. However, a T-shirt with a different design (even slight), counts as a separate product. Our decision about whether or not an item is a separate product is final.
27.4 You agree not to upload more than the number of products allowed under your current subscription.
27.5 Your subscription will continue to be auto-renewed for the subscription period you signed up to unless you end your subscription at least seven days before the renewal date (replaced by any alternative period stated on our Service) by following the instructions on our Service. Ending your subscription does not entitle you to a refund. You authorise us and our payment provider to place a hold on, or charge, your payment card for the relevant amounts or otherwise take payment whenever payments are due in accordance with this agreement. It is your responsibility to update your payment card details as necessary.
27.6 We may at any time change our subscription prices. If so, we will give you at least 30 days’ notice by email. The new subscription price will start at the first renewal of your subscription after the 30-day period (or the second renewal if it is too late for you to stop the current subscription period renewing when we tell you about the new subscription price).
27.7 You must contact us immediately with full details if you dispute any payment.
27.8 You agree that you are legally bound by the terms and conditions of any payment providers whose services you use on our Service. We aren’t responsible for what they do or don’t do.
27.9 You must make all payments without any set-off, counterclaim or any other deduction. Time shall be of the essence for all payments under this agreement.
27.10 If any amount due to us is unpaid (including unjustifiable chargeback), without prejudice to any other remedy that may be available to us, we may charge you: (1) a reasonable additional administration fee; (2) the amount of any third party charges imposed on us; and/or (3) interest (both before and after judgment) on the amount unpaid at the rate for the time being that would be applicable if the debt were a qualifying debt under the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998.
28.1 We are entitled without notice to edit the text or layout of your listing to ensure it complies with our terms and conditions and otherwise in accordance with how we think your presence should appear on our Service. Even if we edit your listing, you remain solely responsible for it, so please monitor it carefully.
28.2 We rank Seller listings based on most recent item posted, product categories or as otherwise explained on our Service. Rankings may be influenced by payment if we offer sponsored or similar listings which enable increased prominence.
29.1 You accept that the standard Seller terms we implement for the Seller Contract may not be up to date or legally compliant or otherwise suitable for your circumstances and that our Service may not enable you to comply with all laws and regulations that apply to your sale of your goods. It is your responsibility to satisfy yourself about such matters including by taking legal advice if appropriate. You should also check our site constantly for any changes to the terms. We are not responsible for any losses arising from use of these terms.
29.2 You are also responsible for taking out appropriate product liability or other insurance to protect yourself arising from your supply of goods via our Service including if relevant standard Seller terms are invalidated by a court.
30.1 You agree to immediately tell us about anything that is likely to be relevant to our decision to accept or retain you on the Service and to tell us immediately of any relevant change to your circumstances.
30.2 You accept that use of our Service of itself may not necessarily enable compliance with all applicable laws and regulations concerning the Seller Contract.
30.3 You agree not to use our Service to supply any prohibited goods listed on our Service.
30.4 You acknowledge that we permit Users to post public reviews about you and/or your goods or services. We are not responsible for monitoring or editing reviews. You acknowledge that such reviews may be critical or defamatory of you.
30.5 You accept that we do not guarantee that use of our Service will generate any particular level of revenues or suitable enquiries.
