Terms and Conditions
By using the Services in any manner, including but not limited to visiting or browsing the Site, you (the "user" or "you") agree to be bound by this Agreement, including those additional terms and conditions and policies referenced herein and/or available by hyperlink. This Agreement applies to all users of the Services, including without limitation users who are vendors, customers, merchants, contributors of content, information and other materials or services on the Site.
Artisan Fishing acts as a venue to allow users who comply with Artisan Fishing’s policies to offer, sell and buy certain goods within a fixed-price format. Artisan Fishing is not directly involved in the transaction between buyers and sellers. As a result, Artisan Fishing 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. Artisan Fishing does not pre-screen users (except for services that require an application) or the content or information provided by users. Artisan Fishing cannot ensure that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction. Artisan Fishing does not transfer legal ownership of items from the seller to the buyer.
Artisan Fishing encourages you to communicate directly with potential transaction partners. You agree that Artisan Fishing 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 Artisan Fishing. You use the Artisan Fishing service at your own risk.
Artisan Fishing’s services are available only to, and may only be used by, individuals who are 18 years and older who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. You represent and warrant that you are at least 18 years old and that all registration information you submit is accurate and truthful. Artisan Fishing may, in its sole discretion, refuse to offer access to or use of the Services to any person or entity and change its eligibility criteria at any time. This provision is void where prohibited by law and the right to access the Services is revoked in such jurisdictions.
Joining and setting up products on Artisan Fishing is free (excluding additional sales channels on Artisan Fishing that may have separate fees). Artisan Fishing collects a percentage-based commission of the sale price when the item sells. If you have opted in for additional services, when you list an item, you have an opportunity to review and accept any fees that you may be charged and decide whether you would like your listings to be automatically renewed. Artisan Fishing’s Fee Policy is subject to change and is incorporated into this Agreement by reference. Artisan Fishing may, at Artisan Fishing’s sole discretion, change some or all of Artisan Fishing’s services at any time. In the event Artisan Fishing 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 Artisan Fishing.
Individuals under the age of 18 must at all times use Artisan Fishing’s services only in conjunction with and under the supervision of a parent or legal guardian who is at least 18 years of age. In all cases, the adult is the user and is responsible for any and all activities.
Compliance - You agree to comply with all local laws regarding online conduct and acceptable content. You are responsible for all applicable taxes. In addition, you must abide by Artisan Fishing’s policies as stated in the Agreement and Guidelines which may be updated by Artisan Fishing from time to time without notice to you.
Account Information Password - You must keep your account information up-to-date and accurate at all times, including a valid email address. To sell items on Artisan Fishing you must provide and maintain valid payment information such as valid credit card information. Keep your password secure. You are fully responsible for all activity, liability and damage resulting from your failure to maintain password confidentiality. You agree to immediately notify Artisan Fishing of any unauthorized use of your password or any breach of security. You also agree that Artisan Fishing cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to keep your password secure. You agree not to provide your username and password information in combination to any other party other than Artisan Fishing without Artisan Fishing’s express written permission.
Account Transfer - You may not transfer or sell your Artisan Fishing account. You are responsible for all activity of the account. If you are registering as a business entity, you personally guarantee that you have the authority to bind the entity to this Agreement.
Right to Refuse Service - Artisan Fishing’s services are not available to temporarily or indefinitely suspended Artisan Fishing members. Artisan Fishing reserves the right, in Artisan Fishing’s sole discretion, to cancel unconfirmed or inactive accounts. Artisan Fishing reserves the right to refuse service to anyone, for any reason, at any time.
Listing Description - All listings on Artisan Fishing must be for sale. By listing an item on the Site you warrant that you and all aspects of the item comply with Artisan Fishing’s published policies. You also warrant that you may legally sell the item. You must accurately describe your item and all terms of sale of your products. Your listings may only include text descriptions, graphics, pictures and other content relevant to the sale of that item. Because Artisan Fishing is a marketplace, not a directory, we require that vendors do not add outside links to product listings. This includes but is not limited to links to any other site where a vendor's products are listed, social media pages, or other online vendors. A vendor may link to their own website in their storefront. 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.
Seller Policies - All sellers are urged to outline shopping policies for their Artisan Fishing products. These policies may include, for example, shipping, returns, payment and selling policies. Sellers must create reasonable policies in good faith and must abide by such policies. All policies must comply with Artisan Fishing’s site-wide policies. Sellers are responsible for enforcing their own reasonable policies. Artisan Fishing reserves the right to request that a seller modify a policy.
Binding Sale - Sellers are responsible for accurately listing their items, and buyers are responsible for reading the description of items before making a purchase. All sales are binding. The seller is obligated to ship the order or otherwise complete the transaction with the buyer in a prompt manner, unless there is an exceptional circumstance, such as: (a) the buyer fails to meet the terms of the seller's listing (such as payment method), or (b) the seller cannot authenticate the buyer's identity. The buyer is obligated to deliver appropriate payment for items purchased, unless there is an exceptional circumstance.
Fee Avoidance - The price stated in each item listing description must be an accurate representation of the sale. Sellers may not charge excessive shipping fees or otherwise avoid fees. You may not alter the item's price after a sale for the purpose of avoiding Artisan Fishing transaction fees, misrepresent the item's location, or use another user's account without permission.
