USE OF THE MERODEA WEBSITE
Before being able to access and/or use the Merodea Services, you must register as a member of the Website by providing Merodea with accurate, complete, and updated registration information which, at a minimum, requires you to, (1) agree to the these Terms and Conditions, (2) provide contact information and identification details, and (3) submit any other form of authentication required as part of the enrollment process, at Merodea’s sole discretion.
As part of your account registration, you are required to provide your accurate name, e-mail address, and a password. Access to and use of password-protected areas of the Website is restricted to authorized users only. By becoming a member and creating your account, you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password. You are responsible for protecting your login credentials, for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password, and for restricting access to your account.
You shall not use your Merodea membership for any purpose competitive to Merodea. You will notify Merodea immediately by emailing email@example.com of any unauthorized use of your Merodea membership known to you, whether by you or a third party. Merodea may assume that any communications we receive from your email or other address, or communications that are associated with your login credentials or your account on this Website, have been made by you unless we receive notice indicating otherwise.
You may cancel your Merodea membership at any time by unsubscribing through your email or by contacting Merodea customer support. Merodea may terminate your membership and refuse any and all current or future use of the Websites or other services, or any portion thereof, (1) in order to comply with applicable Law, (2) if you provide any information that Merodea determines, in its sole discretion, to be untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete (or if the information becomes untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete), (3) if Merodea determines, in its sole discretion, that you are using your Merodea membership in a manner not permitted by these Terms and Conditions, or (4) in other circumstances, as Merodea deems appropriate in its sole discretion.
- Ordering and Purchasing
- Order Processing
Merodea may, in its sole discretion, choose to not process or to cancel your order in certain circumstances. This may occur, for example, when the product or service you wish to purchase is out of stock or has been mispriced, we suspect the request is fraudulent, or in other circumstances Merodea deems appropriate in its sole discretion. Merodea also reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to take steps to verify your identity to process your order. Merodea will not charge you, nor refund the charges for orders that we do not process or cancel.
- Product and Service Descriptions
Merodea attempts to provide accurate descriptions of products and services on the Website. Merodea does not warrant, however, that the descriptions are accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free. If a product or service offered on the Website is not as described, your sole remedy is to return the item, as specified in these Terms & Conditions.
- Products and Service Availability
The Website may contain information regarding the availability of merchandise. This information can be used to estimate the likelihood that an item will be shipped immediately after you place your order. Unfortunately, Merodea cannot guarantee that an item listed as “in stock” will actually ship right away, as inventory can change significantly from day-to-day. In rare cases, a product or service offering may be in stock when a customer places the order, and sold out by the time Merodea attempts to process the order. Should this happen, Merodea will notify you by email. Service offerings that are out-of-stock generally are no longer available. If Merodea determines that a product or service you wish to purchase is no longer available, the item will be cancelled from your order. Merodea will notify you by email and delete the item from the Merodea Website.
- Pricing Information
Merodea strives to provide accurate pricing information regarding the products and services available on the website. The strike-through price displayed for products on our website represents the full retail price listed on the product itself, suggested by the manufacturer or supplier. The strike-through price may or may not represent the prevailing price for retailers in every area on any particular day.
Despite our best effort, we cannot insure against pricing errors. Merodea reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to not process or to cancel any orders placed for a product or service whose price was incorrectly posted on the site as a result of an error. If this occurs, Merodea will notify you by email. In addition, Merodea reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to correct any error in the stated full retail price.
