These headings shall not be used by either party to interpret the provisions contained under them in any manner. Further, the headings have no legal or contractual value.
We hold the sole right to modify the Terms of Service without prior permission from you or providing notice to you.

If you continue to use Shupple Platform or avail any of its services without registration following such change, this is deemed as consent by you to the so amended policies. Your continued use of Shupple Platform is conditioned upon Your compliance with the Terms of Service, including but not limited to compliance with the Terms of Service even after alterations if any.

The Shupple Platform is an online marketplace that enables registered users (“ Consumer”) and certain third parties who offer services (Consumers and third parties who offer products and services are “ Retailers” and the services they offer are “ Retailer Services”) to publish such Retail Services and Products on the Shupple Platform (“ Listings”) and to communicate and transact directly with Consumers that are seeking to buy such Retailer Services (Consumers using Retailer Services are “ Buyers”). Retailer Services may include the offering of various products or other services for purchase (” Offerings“), offering services like Free Home Delivery, Online Payment, Discount Coupons, Credit Facility, Urgent Delivery, Promotion Offers and other such value additions depending on various product categories, consumer group, order value and other criteria (“ Experiences”), and a variety of other retail and non-retail related services.
As the provider of the Shupple Platform, Shupple does not own, create, sell, resell, provide, control, manage, offer, deliver, or supply any Listings or Retailer Services. Retailers alone are responsible for their Listings, Retailer Services and Offerings. Retailer alone is responsible for Product Listing details like Product Name, Brand Name, Images, MRP Prices, Product Description, HSN Code, GST Rates and other product-related information listed on Shupple Platform, explicitly authorizing Shupple to display them as Offerings. When Consumers make or accept an order, they are entering into a contract directly with each other. Shupple is not and does not become a party to or another participant in any contractual relationship between Consumers. Shupple is not acting as an agent in any capacity for any Consumer, except as specified in the Payments Terms.
While we may help facilitate the resolution of disputes, Shupple has no control over and does not guarantee (i) the existence, quality, safety, suitability, or legality of any Listings, Retailer Services or Offerings, (ii) the truth or accuracy of any Listing descriptions, Ratings, Reviews, or other Consumer Content (as defined below), or (iii) the performance or conduct of any Consumer or third party. Shupple does not endorse any Consumer, Listing, Retailer Services or Offerings. Any references to a Consumer being “verified” (or similar language) only indicate that the Consumer has completed a relevant verification or identification process and nothing else. Any such description is not an endorsement, certification or guarantee by Shupple about any Consumer, including of the Consumer’s identity or background or whether the Consumer is trustworthy, safe or suitable. You should always exercise due diligence and care when deciding as a Buyer whether to buy Retailer Offerings, Experiences, or use other Retailer Services, accept an Order from a Buyer, or communicate and interact with other Consumers, whether online or in person. Verified Images (as defined below) are intended only to indicate a photographic representation of a Listing at the time the photograph was taken, and are therefore not an endorsement by Shupple of any Retailers, Offerings or Listing.
Retailers alone are responsible for identifying, understanding, and complying with all laws, rules and regulations that apply to their Listings, Products and Retail Services. Retailers are alone responsible for identifying and obtaining any required licenses, permits, or registrations for any Retail Services they offer. Certain types of Retail Services may be prohibited altogether. Penalties may include fines or other enforcement. If you have questions about how local laws apply to your Listing(s), Products and Retail Service(s) on Shupple, you should always seek legal guidance.
If you choose to use the Shupple Platform as a Retailer (as defined below), your relationship with Shupple is limited to being an independent, third-party contractor, and not an employee, agent, joint venturer or partner of Shupple for any reason, and you act exclusively on your behalf and for your benefit, and not on behalf, or for the benefit, of Shupple.
To promote the Shupple Platform and to increase the exposure of Listings to potential Buyers, Listings and other Consumer Content may be displayed on other websites, in applications, within emails, and in online and offline advertisements. To assist Consumers who speak different languages, Listings and other Consumer Content may be translated, in whole or in part, into other languages. Shupple cannot guarantee the accuracy or quality of such translations and Consumers are responsible for reviewing and verifying the accuracy of such translations. The Shupple Platform may contain translations powered by Google. Google disclaims all warranties related to the translations, express or implied, including any warranties of accuracy, reliability, and any implied warranties for Retailer ability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement.
The Shupple Platform may contain links to third-party websites or resources (“ Third-Party Services”). Such Third-Party Services may be subject to different terms and conditions and privacy practices. Shupple is not responsible or liable for the availability or accuracy of such Third-Party Services, or the content, products, or services available from such Third-Party Services. Links to such Third-Party Services are not an endorsement by Shupple of such Third-Party Services.
Due to the nature of the Internet, Shupple cannot guarantee the continuous and uninterrupted availability and accessibility of the Shupple Platform. Shupple may restrict the availability of the Shupple Platform or certain areas or features thereof if this is necessary due to capacity limits, the security or integrity of our servers, or to carry out maintenance measures that ensure the proper or improved functioning of the Shupple Platform.
