NIKU Farms Guidelines
All Goods listed through the Services must be made or produced by the NIKU Farms Seller.
NIKU Farms Sellers are Independent Businesses
The NIKU Farms Sellers have the obligation to always send the freshest and best quality Goods as depicted on the photography featured on the Services. The NIKU Farms Sellers need to follow the guidelines for packaging as provided to the NIKU Farms Sellers by NIKU Farms from time to time. The NIKU Farms Seller has the sole and complete discretion to accept or reject each order of Goods. Once you have submitted your order and your payment has been authorized, you will not be entitled to change or cancel your order, nor will you be entitled to a refund other than as set out below. NIKU Farms encourages all our NIKU Farms Sellers to accept all orders of Goods and to communicate any rejection promptly, and NIKU Farms will notify you as soon as reasonably practicable if a NIKU Farms Seller rejects your order. NIKU Farms Sellers have the discretion to reject orders at any time because they are too busy, due to supply issues, due to weather conditions or for any other reason. If a NIKU Farms Seller accepts an order, NIKU Farms will notify you and provide you with an estimate on when your order will arrive.
NIKU Farms does not provide refunds for any of the Goods purchased by a NIKU Farms Buyer, as NIKU Farms is not a party to any agreements or contracts for Goods. NIKU Farms wants each NIKU Farms Buyer to be completely satisfied with the products you receive, so if you have any problems please contact us and NIKU Farms will contact the NIKU Farms Seller to try to resolve the issue. Each NIKU Farms Seller reserves the right to deny a refund or product replacement in its sole discretion.
Most orders will be shipped using a third party transportation network company (i.e. UPS, Fedex, etc.). In no circumstance shall NIKU Farms Inc. be held liable for any problems, claims, losses, injuries, illness or other damage to the products arising from your failure to ensure they are refrigerated or frozen in the necessary amount of time after any attempted or actual delivery.
We set the rates for Goods which are listed on the Services. NIKU Farms will charge you for any order of Goods made on behalf of the NIKU Farms Seller. You agree that you will pay for all Goods you purchase from the NIKU Farms Seller, and that NIKU Farms may charge your credit card account as provided by you to a third party service provider that processes payments when completing an Order Form (including any taxes and late fees, as applicable) that may be incurred by or in connection with your Account or in connection with an order of Goods placed by completing an Order Form. You are responsible for the timely payment of all fees and for providing NIKU Farms with a valid credit card account for payment at all times.
NIKU Farms uses a third-party payment processor (the "Payment Processor") to link the credit card you provide to the Services. The processing of payments in connection with your use of the Services will be subject to the terms, conditions and privacy policies of your credit card issuer in addition to these Terms. NIKU Farms is not responsible for any errors by the Payment Processor.
NIKU Farms may choose to temporarily change the rates for Good, fees policy and the fees for the Services for promotional events (for example, free shipping); such changes are effective when NIKU Farms posts the temporary promotional event on the Website. NIKU Farms may, at NIKU Farms’ sole discretion, change some or all of NIKU Farms’ services at any time. In the event NIKU Farms 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 Canadian Dollars (CDN). You are responsible for paying all fees and applicable taxes associated with using the Services.
Fees and Termination: If NIKU Farms terminates a listing or your Account, if you close your Account, or if the payment of your NIKU Farms fees cannot be completed for any reason, you remain obligated to pay NIKU Farms for all unpaid fees plus any penalties, if applicable.
