Flowly, Inc. ("Flowly", "we", "our", or "us") is a way to search for and follow all your favorite stores in one place. Because Flowly is a marketplace that brings together an incredible range of different merchants and stores, any sales that occur (and any sales contracts) are directly between the sellers and buyers. This Terms of Service (the "Agreement") refers to all of Flowly sites, applications, tools and services collectively as our "Services." This Agreement and all policies and additional terms on and in our Services set out the terms on which Flowly offers you access to and use of our Services. All policies and additional terms posted on and in our sites, applications, tools, and services are incorporated into this Agreement. By using our Services, you agree to comply with all terms of this Agreement.
This Agreement contains terms that govern how we resolve claims you and we might have against each other (see "Disclaimer of Warranties; Limitation of Liability" and "Legal Disputes" provisions below). It also contains an Agreement to Arbitrate which will, with limited exception, require you to submit claims you have against us or our agents to binding and final arbitration, unless you opt out of the Agreement to Arbitrate (see Legal Disputes, Section B ("Agreement to Arbitrate")). If you do not opt out of the Agreement to Arbitrate (1) you will be permitted to pursue claims against us or our agents only on an individual basis, not as a plaintiff or class member in any class or representative action or proceeding and (2) you will be permitted to seek relief (including monetary, injunctive, and declaratory relief) only on an individual basis.
We may make changes to this Agreement or our Services at any time, and we will post the amended terms with 30 days' notice at https://goflowly.com. You agree to review this page, https://goflowly.com/terms, each time you visit our Site to identify if the Agreement has changed since the last time you visited the Site (as you can determine from the "Last modified on" date listed above). By proceeding to use the Services after we update the Agreement you thereby agree to any amendments to the Agreement. We may also ask you to acknowledge your acceptance of this Agreement through an electronic click-through. No other amendments to this Agreement shall be valid except through mutual written agreement by you and a duly authorized Flowly representative.
This Agreement governs all transactions through Flowly Services. Terms and conditions of the other businesses with which you interact through the Flowly checkout system may also govern those interactions, binding you and the relevant businesses but not Flowly. Flowly will inform purchasers when an order is placed with a third-party business, however, each third-party business shall have discretion to accept an order and to allow or deny changes to an order. The terms and conditions of the third-party business may be listed on that third-party's seller page, or else obtained by contacting that business. In the event of any conflict between the third-party business' terms and this Agreement, this Agreement will control.
We may provide guidance as part of our Services, such as pricing, shipping, listing, and sourcing, but that guidance is solely informational and you may decide to follow it or not. Although we may help facilitate the resolution of disputes, Flowly has no control over and does not guarantee the existence, quality, safety or legality of items advertised; the truth or accuracy of users' content or listings; the ability of sellers to sell items; the ability of buyers to pay for items; or that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction or return an item.
In connection with using or accessing the Services you agree that you will not:
You must provide current, complete, and accurate information for your processing of your payment. You must promptly update all information to keep your payment valid, complete, and accurate (such as a change in billing address, credit card number, or credit card expiration date), and you must promptly notify us if your form of payment is cancelled (e.g., for loss or theft) or if you become aware of a potential breach of security, such as the unauthorized disclosure or use of your personal information.
We may, in our sole discretion, limit, suspend, or terminate your user account(s) and access to our Services, delay or remove hosted content, remove any special status associated with your account(s), remove, not display, and/or demote listings, reduce or eliminate any discounts, and take technical and/or legal steps to prevent you from using our Services.
Flowly may from time to time offer credits to existing users who refer new users to the Service using the invitation codes that Flowly provides them. Flowly may also make credits available to new users using those invitation codes. Flowly may determine the credits, their conditions or requirements, and their amount or duration in its sole discretion and may modify or terminate the credits or the program at any time, even without notice to you. Furthermore, Flowly reserves the right to limit the number and/or amount of credits that may be earned with respect to any existing user with or without notice to you. To be eligible for a credit (whether granted to an existing user or new user), the new user must be an individual that has never registered for the Service and must be using a mobile device via the Flowly App (not the web) for sign-up and the mobile device being used must not be associated with an existing Flowly account. You agree that any credit (1) cannot be traded for cash or any other service; (2) may not be sold or transferred in any manner, or made available to the general public (whether posted to a public forum or otherwise), unless Flowly expressly permits it; (3) cannot be acquired via public distribution where you are a contributor but not the primary content owner (e.g. coupon websites); (4) may expire prior to your use; (5) may be voided or deducted by Flowly at any time for any reason without liability to Flowly, if Flowly believes in its sole discretion that such credits resulted from fraud or other misuse of the Referral Program or the Service. If your account has been suspended or terminated, your credits from the Friend Referral Program will be voided.
Flowly does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register for the Services. If you are under 13, please do not attempt to register for the Services or send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. No one under age 13 may provide any personal information to Flowly or on the Services. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When a buyer or seller dispute or problem arises, we may consider the user's history and the specific circumstances when applying our policies, and we may apply policies flexibly in our judgment.
Flowly may terminate unconfirmed accounts or accounts that have been inactive for a long time.
We reserve the right to refuse, modify, or terminate all or part of our Services to anyone, for any reason, at our sole discretion.
