    1. Taxes
        1. It is your responsibility to collect and pay applicable taxes on any sales made through Our Marketplace.
        2. Where any tax, for example VAT, forms a part of the price of any item on Our Marketplace, the tax must be included in the price of the item.
        3. Value added tax (“VAT”) may be charged to Buyers on purchases and to Sellers on fees payable to Us.
        4. If you are VAT registered, you may be required to charge VAT on the items that you sell on Our Marketplace.
        5. For further information on VAT and other taxes in your location, please contact your local tax authority.
    1. Delivery
        1. You must dispatch items within 48 hours upon receiving the confirmation that the sale where you are the Seller has taken place, taking into account the nature of the item(s) in question, preparation time and, where relevant, manufacturing time (if items are made or customised to order). 
        2. You must ensure that you dispatch items to the correct address provided by the Buyer. It is your responsibility to ensure that the address that you use exactly matches that provided by the Buyer. If items dispatched do not reach the Buyer due to an incorrect address provided by the Buyer, it is the Buyer’s responsibility and not yours.
        3. You are free to determine the delivery charges for your items; however, delivery charges must be reasonable, not excessive, and must genuinely reflect the actual cost to you of delivering the item in question to the Buyer.
        4. You are responsible for delivering items to Buyers upon receipt of confirmation that a sale where you are the Seller has taken place.
        5. It is strongly recommended that you obtain the tracking information, proof of postage or dispatch when dispatching items. Such proof will be important in the event that a Buyer does not receive the item(s) from you.
        6. Once an item has been dispatched to a Buyer, you must inform the Buyer. Our Marketplace enables you to do this by marking an order as ‘Fulfilled’ from your account. You must not describe an item as dispatched until it actually has been dispatched.
        7. Our Marketplace allows you to share tracking information obtained from a postal or delivery service with Buyers. By sharing such information, you are giving Us your permission to collect and use it to provide Our service, and to share it with the Buyer.
        8. You must comply with any and all applicable shipping and customs regulations when delivering items to Buyers. It is your responsibility to check, be aware of, understand, and comply with all such regulations.
    1. Refunds, Cancellations & Returns
      1. All sales are final and there are no refunds, no cancellation, and no returns. 
    1. Problems with Transactions and Buyers’ Rights
        1. You must provide goods and/or digital content that are/is of satisfactory quality, fit for purpose, as described at the time of purchase, in accordance with any pre-contract information that you provide to the Buyer, and that matches any samples or models that you have shown to the Buyer (unless you have made the Buyer aware of any differences).
        2. If items do not conform with the requirements outlined in sub-Clause 17.a and, for example, have faults or are damaged when the Buyer receives them, the Buyer may contact us to inform you. There are certain remedies available to Buyers that you must comply with.
        3. Further information on legal rights can be obtained from your local Citizens Advice Bureau or Trading Standards Office.

        5. Nothing in these Terms for Sellers seeks to limit or exclude consumers’ legal rights. For more details of consumers’ legal rights, please refer to your local Citizens Advice Bureau or Trading Standards Office.

        2. For complete details of Our collection, processing, storage, and retention of personal data including, but not limited to, the purpose(s) for which personal data is used, the legal basis or bases for using it, details of your rights and how to exercise them, and personal data sharing (where applicable), please refer to Our Privacy Policy and Cookies Policy below.
        3. As a Seller, you will also collect, hold, and process Buyers’ personal information in the course of transactions (for example, buyers’ names, email addresses, and postal addresses). You must have your own privacy policy in place to govern your collection, processing, and holding of Buyers’ personal data. As a Seller you may, therefore, also be considered data controller under GDPR and you will be responsible for complying with your legal obligations and protecting Buyers’ rights under GDPR. You must only use the personal data of other Users (whether they are Buyers or Sellers) to the extent necessary to complete a transaction, to communicate about a specific transaction, to communicate via Our Marketplace, and/or to respond to messages from them. You may not add any User to a mailing list, use their data for marketing, or retain any payment details. You may only use another User’s personal data for additional purposes with their consent.
        4. If a Seller and Us are found to be joint data controllers of any Buyers’ personal data, and We are sued, fined, or otherwise incur any expense because of something you have done with a Buyer’s personal data, you agree to indemnify Us for any expenses incurred by Us in connection with your actions in respect of that personal data. Further details of the requirements of GDPR can be obtained from the Information Commissioner’s Office.
    1. Other Important Terms
        1. We may transfer (assign) Our obligations and rights under these Terms for Sellers to a third party (this may happen, for example, if We sell Our business).  If this occurs, you will be informed by Us in writing.  Your rights under these Terms for Sellers will not be affected and Our obligations under these Terms for Sellers will be transferred to the third party who will remain bound by them.
        2. You may not transfer (assign) your obligations and rights under these Terms for Sellers without Our express written permission.
        3. If any of the provisions of these Terms for Sellers are found to be unlawful, invalid or otherwise unenforceable by any court or other authority, that / those provision(s) shall be deemed severed from the remainder of these Terms for Sellers.  The remainder of these Terms for Sellers shall be valid and enforceable.
        4. No failure or delay by Us in exercising any of Our rights under these Terms for Sellers means that We have waived that right, and no waiver by Us of a breach of any provision of these Terms for Sellers means that We will waive any subsequent breach of the same or any other provision.
        5. We may revise these Terms for Sellers from time to time in response to changes in relevant laws and other regulatory requirements. If any changes to these Terms for Sellers are to your material disadvantage, you may cancel as set out above.
