Kiitos Terms of Service
Welcome to Kiitos!
Kiitos, Inc. (“Kiitos” or “we”) has developed this Terms of Service (“Terms”) to describe the terms that govern your access to and use of the Kiitos services, including the Kiitos site and other content and services that are linked to these Terms (the " Services"). By accessing or using our Services, you are agreeing to these terms so please read them carefully.
Kiitos allows users to buy, borrow, and sell infant, toddler, children and maternity related items at various prices and in different locations. You must rightfully own or have the necessary legal rights to sell, offer up for borrowing, or buy any items. Please keep in mind that the actual contract for borrowing or selling any item is directly between the seller and buyer or borrower. You assume all risks when transacting with other users.
As part of the Services we may list the items that are available for sale or borrowing, provide pricing or shipping services, or provide other information or Services; however, these are just recommendations so it is up to you if you want to use such information or Services. Kiitos does not guarantee or endorse the authenticity, quality, safety, legality of any of the items offered, borrowed, or sold through the Services; the accuracy of any listings; the ability of sellers to sell items, buyers to buy items, lenders to loan items, or borrowers to borrow items; or that a buyer, borrower, or seller will actually complete a transaction or return an item. We reserve the right to change our Services at any time and for any reason.
Our Services may display content that is provided by a user’s or other third parties. This content is the sole responsibility of the person or entity that decides to makes it available through our Services. Although we do not have any obligation to review or monitor any content, we may review content to determine if it violates our Terms or applicable laws, and we may remove or refuse to display content that we reasonably believe violates our Terms or any law.
Who can use Kiitos: You may only use the Services if you are over the age of 18, are able to enter into a valid agreement with Kiitos, and comply with these Terms and all applicable laws, including applicable export and re-export control laws and regulations. If you can’t agree to these terms do not use our Services.
Registration: To use the Services, you must first create a Kiitos account. There are currently two ways to do this. You can either register by using Facebook Connect or you can register directly with Kiitos using your email. Once you have an account, you are free to list, borrow, loan, sell, or buy any items.
Listing: You must have the necessary legal rights to the item. When you list an item through the Service you must comply with our listing guidelines, this includes, without limitation, accurately describe your item, provide a picture that provides an accurate representation of the item, assign the item to the appropriate category, and provide the terms of your offer. If you are a loaner (which means you are listing an item that will be loaned out), you will also need to include how long the item can be borrowed. Kiitos reserves the right to remove any listings we find inappropriate for our site. Kiitos does not permit listings of: car seats, car seat bases, any kind of weapon, breastmilk, breast pump accessory parts (closed system breast pumps are ok), services (such as babysitting) recalled items or items in poor condition. We reserve the right to remove any listing at our discretion.
Purchasing: If you agree to purchase any item through the Services, you must pay immediately for the item through the Services. If you do not complete your transaction before your session ends, the item you wish to purchase will be released back to the site for other users to buy. A session ends in 24 hours or if you log out sooner than 24 hours. All sales are final, unless otherwise noted. In return, the seller must promptly ship or arrange delivery of the item to the buyer.
Borrowing: The Service also allows you to list item(s) that can be borrowed by another user for some period of time. It is the responsibility of the borrower to promptly return the item in original condition to the loaner. The loaner will assume risk when letting a user borrow an item and should expect standard wear and tear on the item used by the borrower.
Requesting: If you are looking for an item that you would like to borrow or purchase you can simply request the item. If sellers or loaners can fulfill a buyer or borrower’s request, they respond directly to the requested item’s post. Sales of requested items are treated the same as general listing. All transactions are binding.
Cancellation/Refund Policy: Returns and exchanges are determined by the seller or loaner. If the seller cancels a listing that has been purchased by a buyer, the seller is responsible for the service fee associated with the listing. Please confirm with the seller or loaner prior to completing the transaction. Assume that all transactions are final. Any questions or complaints relating to a purchase in exchange for a full or partial refund must be directed to the seller or loaner of the item. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to help settle any disputes. Stripe has outlined their policies and procedures of charges and returns here.
If we think you are abusing or misusing our Service in any way, we may, in our sole discretion and without limiting other remedies, limit, suspend, or terminate your user account(s) and access to our Services, delay or remove any content you have provided, remove or demote any listings, reduce or eliminate any discounts, and take technical or legal steps to prevent you from using or accessing our Services.
One more thing we need you to be aware of. We may cancel unconfirmed accounts or accounts that have been inactive for a long time or modify or discontinue our Services.
If you suspect inappropriate or fraudulent activity by another user please let us know by emailing us at email@example.com
