Last updated: 25/05/2022
What are these Terms?
Thank you for your interest in joining the Tilt eco-system. These terms apply to the Tilt app or website: http://tilt.app/ (together the "Platform") and apply to you if you choose to buy or sell products through the Platform or use it in any other way. Please read these terms carefully. By using the Platform, you are agreeing to be bound by these terms.
What is the Tilt Platform?
The Tilt Platform is developed by Retro Labs Limited ("Tilt" "we", "us" or "our" ) and enables registered users of the Platform to sell their products ("Sellers") to other registered users who agree to buy the products ("Buyers"). The Sellers can currently display their products either by live stream or video.
Retro Labs Limited provides the Platform for the benefit of Buyers and Sellers to trade, however, we are a marketplace platform only, and we are not a party to the sale contract between any Buyer and Seller. We are not responsible for any products offered or sold by Sellers, or for any obligations of Buyers.
Retro Labs Limited is a company registered in England and Wales (company number 13499061). Our registered address is 9th Floor, 107 Cheapside, London EC2V 6DN, United Kingdom.
Eligibility and setting up an Account
You must be at least 18 and located in the United Kingdom to use the Platform. By using the Platform and by agreeing to these terms, you warrant and represent that you are at least 18. If you create an account on the Platform, you are responsible for maintaining the security of your account and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under the account and any other actions taken in connection with it. We may, but have no obligation to, monitor and review new accounts before you may sign in and start using the Platform. Providing false contact information of any kind (or any other breach of these terms) may result in the termination of your account. You must immediately notify us of any unauthorised uses of your account or any other breaches of security. We will not be liable for any acts or omissions by you, including any damages of any kind incurred as a result of such acts or omissions.
Terms specific to Buyers
Order process: Once you register on the Platform, you can place orders for Sellers' products. As a Buyer, you acknowledge that by placing an order through the Platform, you are entering into a legally binding contract with the Seller in each case, and you agree to pay the price of the product and all related charges including, without limitation, all taxes, duties, shipping and handling charges. Payment for your purchases can be made by all major credit and debit cards.
When the third-party carrier delivers the products to the Buyer, the title and risk pass to the Buyer.
If a product is displayed via live stream, the shopping window will remain open for 12 hours after the live stream, during which time Buyers can make purchases.
Our role: Tilt is a marketplace platform only, and we are not a party to the sale contract between any Buyer or Seller. We are not responsible for any products offered or sold by Sellers, or for their delivery.
Returns and refunds: Once placed on the Platform, orders cannot be cancelled, but products shipped will be subject to the Seller's return policy. Buyers should read the Seller's return and refund policy before placing an order.
Livestream Auction Rules: You bid, you buy. It's crucial for the integrity of an auction; when you make a bid on an item, you should be prepared to go through with the purchase. Initiating chargebacks or canceling purchases could potentially result in a ban. No artificially raising prices through bidding: You can only place a bid if you have a genuine intention to acquire the item. Any evidence of attempting to artificially inflate prices through bidding will lead to a permanent ban.
Terms specific to Sellers
Onboarding and Selling: All Sellers must have an existing online store with a supported e-commerce platform such as Shopify. A list of e-commerce platforms that we support will be set out on the Platform. If you do not have an online store with a supported e-commerce platform, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help you create one. Once you register on the Platform, you can then connect your e-commerce store and upload your products to the Platform. You can also choose to hide any products that you do not wish to offer for sale. You can also upload videos to the Platform to promote your products.
Pricing: You are responsible for setting the price of your products.
Order process: When you list a product you are making an offer to Buyers to buy it as described. Whenever a Buyer places an order for any of your products, that forms a binding contract of sale between you and the Buyer. You will receive an order confirmation, and the order will appear in the "Orders" section of your account. Once the order is placed, you must ship the product(s) within 30 days, directly to the Buyer through a reputable third-party carrier.
Shipping insurance: You will be liable to Buyers where any products do not arrive, or where they arrive damaged, and will need to deal with any claims. Tilt strongly advises Sellers to maintain shipment insurance. It is your responsibility to print, scan, and package the products in a way that prevents damage.
Returns and refunds: You must operate a returns and refund policy that reflects applicable law. For example, in the UK Buyers are entitled to change their minds and cancel the order within 14 days of receipt of goods (although they may vary across product lines and in certain circumstances such as goods made-to-order). You are responsible for ensuring you understand and comply with applicable laws.
Product Quality, Compliance and your Warranties: In relation to your use of the Platform, you warrant and represent that:
