YOU AGREE THAT BY USING THE SITE AND THE SERVICES YOU ARE AT LEAST 18 YEARS OF AGE, YOU ARE LEGALLY ABLE TO ENTER INTO A CONTRACT AND AGREE TO COMPLY WITH ALL APPLICABLE LAWS AND REGULATIONS.

1. Who We Are.
EcoHabitude acts as a virtual marketplace allowing users to sell and buy exclusively eco-friendly merchandise. EcoHabitude is not directly involved in the transaction between buyers and sellers. Because EcoHabitude acts a passive conduit of communication between EcoHabitude buyers and sellers, it is, therefore, not responsible for and does not endorse any communications made by such users.
All right, title and interest in and to the materials provided on this Site, including but not limited to information, documents, logos, graphics, sounds and images (the "Materials") are owned or licensed either by EcoHabitude Inc. or by the respective third party EcoHabitude sellers. You agree that EcoHabitude is a virtual marketplace 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 EcoHabitude.com. You use the EcoHabitude service at your own risk.
EcoHabitude does not pre-screen users or the content or information provided by users. EcoHabitude cannot ensure that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction. Consequently, EcoHabitude does not transfer legal ownership of items from the seller to the buyer.
Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved by EcoHabitude.
As a marketplace venue, EcoHabitude's role is to connect shoppers (buyers) with independent shops (sellers). A transaction is created when a buyer has completed the Checkout process on EcoHabitude. Both the buyer and the seller are sent an email from Ecohabitude about the order and a receipt record by email. A transaction is considered complete after the buyer has submitted payment and the seller has shipped the item to the buyer.
EcoHabitude aims to keep the shopping experience consistent across the marketplace. Our shop policies, which apply to all sellers, are outlined on the Community Guidelines page, the contents of which are fully incorporated by reference herein.
Please take note that third-party services may be involved in a transaction (for example: credit card processing gateways, shipping services, etc...), and these other services may have different policies regarding transactions or use of their services.

EcoHabitude.com and you agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims
between us. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. It includes, but is not limited to:
(i)Claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory;
(ii)Claims that arose before this or any prior agreement (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising);
(iii)Claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class; and
(iv)Claims that may arise after the termination of this agreement.
This agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement.
The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute arising under or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Agreement, including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this Agreement is void or voidable.
Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if EcoHabitude makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to the Notice Address) while you are a registered user of our Site, you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change. By rejecting any future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this provision.
YOU AND ECOHABITUDE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
Further, unless both you and EcoHabitude agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
For any claim related to this Agreement or our Service, excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief, where the total amount sought is less than ten thousand U.S. Dollars ($10,000 USD), either we or you may elect at any point in or during a dispute or proceeding to resolve the claim through binding nonappearance-based arbitration. In such an event, the arbitration shall be conducted at the option of the party seeking relief, by telephone, online or based solely on written submissions. The arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.
15. Legal Compliance; Taxes
You shall comply with all applicable domestic and international laws, statutes, ordinances and regulations regarding your use of the Site and any EcoHabitude service and, if applicable, your listing, purchase, solicitation of offers to purchase, and sale of items. In addition, you shall be responsible for paying any and all taxes applicable to any purchases or sales of items you make on the Site (excluding any taxes on EcoHabitude's net income).
16. Governing Law; Venue.

Any legal action or proceeding relating to your access to or use of the Site or Materials shall be instituted in a state or federal court in the State of New York, County of New York.

EcoHabitude cannot guarantee the true identity, age, and nationality of a user. EcoHabitude encourages you to communicate directly with potential transaction partners through the tools available on the Site. Although we use several techniques to verify the accuracy of certain information the Users provide, because user verification on the Internet is difficult, EcoHabitude cannot and does not confirm each User's purported identity. We encourage you to use various means, as well as common sense, to evaluate with whom you are dealing. You may also wish to consider using a third-party escrow service that provide additional user verification.
If you have a dispute with one or more users, you release us (and our affiliates and subsidiaries, and our and their respective officers, directors, employees, and agents) 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.
