2. Scope of Primenative Services 

You have sole responsibility when interacting with other members. Our Services provide a platform for members to buy and sell ethnic fashion, beauty products & services and art & craft; and to communicate with one another for the sole purpose of transactions. Primenative is not a party to, has no involvement or interest in, makes no representations or warranties as to, and has no responsibility or liability with respect to any communications, transactions, interactions, disputes or any relations whatsoever between you and any other member, person or organization except as stated in section 7. You are solely responsible for your interactions with other members of our Services. We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor interactions between you and other members of our Services. We cannot be responsible for the interactions that you have with other Primenative members. We therefore advise that you use good judgment and keep safety in mind when you use our Services.

 

2.1     The Primenative Platform is an online marketplace that enables registered users who offer products and services for sale (“Merchants”)  to publish such offerings (“Listings”) and to communicate and transact directly with other members who are seeking to purchase or book such Listings (Members who purchase these Listings are “Customers”).

 

2.2              As the provider of the Primenative Platform, Primenative does not own, create, sell, resell, provide, control, manage, offer, deliver, or supply any Listings. Merchants alone are responsible for their Listings. When Members make or order/purchase any Listings, they are entering into a non-binding agreement directly with each other. Primenative is not and does not become a party to or other participant in any contractual relationship between Members, nor is Primenative a broker or insurer.

 

2.3              While we may (at our own discretion) help facilitate the resolution of disputes, Primenative has no control over and does not guarantee: (i) the existence, quality, safety, suitability, or legality of any Listings, (ii) the truth or accuracy of any Listing descriptions, Ratings, Reviews, or other Member Content (as defined below), or (iii) the performance or conduct of any Member (Merchant or Customer) or third party. Primenative does not endorse any Members or Listings. While we are happy to indemnify the Customer according to section 7, the onus is on the Customer to exercise good sense in matters of Value for Money and the specifics in a Merchant’s Shop Policy. Reviews are intended only to indicate Members’ feedback from past orders, and are therefore not an endorsement by Primenative of any Merchant or Listing.

 

Primenative is merely a communication platform, therefore if you List your Products or Services, your relationship with Primenative is not a contractual one. You are not an employee, agent, joint venturer or partner of Primenative for any reason, and you act exclusively on your own behalf and for your own benefit, and not on behalf, or for the benefit of Primenative.

 

2.4  Due to the nature of the Internet, Primenative cannot guarantee the continuous and uninterrupted availability and accessibility of the  Primenative PlatformPrimenative may restrict the availability of the  Primenative Platform or certain areas or features thereof, if this is necessary in view of capacity limits, the security or integrity of our servers, or to carry out maintenance measures that ensure the proper or improved functioning of the  Primenative Platform.  Primenative may improve, enhance and modify the  Primenative Platform and introduce new  Primenative Services from time to time.


3         Membership Eligibility

 

3.1  Use of the Primenative Platform is available only to persons who can form legally binding contracts under Nigerian governing laws. If you are a minor i.e. under the age of 18 years, you shall not register as a Member of Primenative and shall not transact or use Primenative Platform. As a minor if you wish to use or transact on Primenative, such use or transaction may be made by your legal guardian or parents who have registered as Members of  Primenative.  Primenative reserves the right to terminate your membership and refuse to provide you with access to the Primenative Platform if it is brought to Primenative International Limited’s notice or if it is discovered that you are under the age of 18 years.

Provided that to the extent appropriate, Primenative may join in any actions brought against the Merchant only where Primenative is found to be in joint data control and Primenative shall cooperate fully in any litigation or other proceedings to protect the Primenative’s content and rights. Provided also that action against the Customer shall be brought by Primenative and if any other party such as the Merchant, apart from Primenative, elects to proceed alone directly through its own counsel or instructs Primenative to proceed alone directly through its own counsel in Primenative's name, that party shall, first seek and obtain the consent of Primenative, and bear the costs thereof and Primenative shall be entitled to retain any recovery.

7        Primenative’s Obligation

 

Background: Our Platform is a curated online marketplace which focuses essentially on ethnic fashion, beauty and art & craft. There is a catch here though: but for a few exceptions, all products sold on the Platform must be made in their finished forms by Merchants who are based in countries where we have operations (Only Nigeria at this time).  A list of the products and services which are exempted from this general rule shall be communicated to the Merchants in a separate document from time to time. We take extra care to make sure that Merchants who sell on our Platform are real human beings; and that they are in the business of selling whatever products or services which they may have in their Listings. THIS IS WHY WE TAKE IT UPON OURSELVES TO INDEMNIFY ALL CUSTOMERS TO THE FULL VALUE OF ANY PURCHASES THEY MAKE ON THE PLATFORM IF SUCH ORDERS/BOOKINGS ARE NOT DELIVERED TO THEM (i.e. FOR ALL NON-DELIVERY). 

7.1 As Primenative does not intervene in the transactions between the Customers and Merchants. Each Member has to inform Primenative in the event of a dispute between Members for any reclamation, and of any damage incurred or to be incurred, presumed or not, noted or not, resulting directly or indirectly from these reclamations.

                      

7.2 The Primenative Guarantee                     

OUR GUARANTEE COVERS ONLY FOR NON-DELIVERY OF GOODS AND SERVICES. When you are yet to receive goods you ordered, 14 days after the Merchant’s delivery time as contained in their Shop Policy or as communicated to you in your correspondences with the Merchant on the Platform has lapsed. Or in the case of service- one day after such a booking has lapsed. All such orders are classified as non-delivery. When this happens; and after exploring all reasonable endeavours towards an amicable settlement with the Merchant, the Customer may proceed to claim remedies from us.

 

The Customer may opt to seek reclamation in line with our 100% Value of Purchase indemnification by sending us an email at info@primenative.com with all relevant information at their disposal concerning the disputed purchase. We shall use resources at our disposal to investigate the matter and come to a conclusion within seven working days. If we determine that the Merchant has not delivered to the Customer the goods/services purchased (i.e. “Non-delivery”), we shall proceed to pay to the Customer a part or full value of the purchase in dispute according to what the Customer is claiming and in accordance with the findings of our investigation- all within 14 working days of the Customer lodging their complaint.  

 

7.3 Primenative offers to Merchants: (i) the possibility to make Listings and sell their products and services by means of a Virtual Shop, (ii) tools which allow them to promote further their Listings, and (iii) arrangements that facilitate logistics services.

 

7.4 Primenative's activity is limited to the intermediation between Customers and Merchants. Primenative does not intervene in any way in the transactions between Merchants and Customers who decide on their own and in their own discretion, to engage in whatever transactions on the Platform. Primenative is neither a retailer nor does it own any Listings on the Platform.

 

7.5 But for guiding policies and procedures as contained in these Terms of Service,  Primenative has no control over what Listings are published; and in particular cannot guarantee that the products and services will satisfy the Customer. Primenative cannot also guarantee to the Merchant that their product/service will not be returned/contested and/or the sale cancelled by the Customer (subject to these Terms of Service and in line with the Merchant’s Shop Policy).

 

7.6 Primenative on the one hand and the Merchant on the other are independent parties, each acting in its own name. There is neither an assumption nor is it a fact that we intend to create or have created any subordination link, mandate, participatory company, common venture, employer/employee relations or franchiser/franchisee relation between Primenative and any Merchant.

 

7.7 When you use the Platform or send emails, information or otherwise communicate with us in any form, you agree and understand that you are communicating with Primenative through electronic records and that you consent to receive communications via electronic records from Primenative periodically. Primenative may communicate with you by email or by such other mode of communication, electronic or otherwise. Members cannot therefore complain or litigate in any way regarding the said contacts, but will always be free at any time to opt out by clicking on the deactivation button in our email to them or by simply sending us an email at info@primenative.com to that effect.  

 

7.8 In the event that  Primenative learns about any act or intent of a Member outside or on the Platform to: (i) reroute/redirect or trying to reroute/redirect all or part of the Merchants or Customers on the Platform or entice all or part of the Merchants or Customers to not or not anymore sell or buy on the Platform or any Virtual Shops on the Platform, (ii) be dishonest, prejudicial, antitrade, degrading, slanderous, defamatory, injurious, detrimental or damaging to  Primenative, the Platform, or any Member, any third party (iii) aim to promote any other activity or service that is not in consonance with the general Terms of Service as contained herein;  Primenative reserves the right to terminate such Member's account and/or Virtual Shop.

 

7.9 For the avoidance of doubt, any part of a Merchant’s Shop Policy which runs contrary to any provision of these Terms of Service shall be considered null and void.  And where a customer proceeds to deal with a Merchant on an invalid policy, Primenative shall not be liable.


8        Member’s Obligation

 

8.1 Where returns are allowed, the Customer shall exercise utmost caution to send goods for return back to the Merchant in as pristine a condition as when it was delivered to them.

8.2 Any person that registers as a Member on The Platform commits to supply exact, updated and complete information and all other data (notably personal) that might be necessary to finalize and maintain such registration on the Platform; notably a valid e-mail address and all necessary complementary information to become Merchant or Customer. Each Member commits also to update their account and to add without delay any modification concerning their information. Each Member will be held solely responsible for any consequence that might result from the supply of invalid, erroneous or misleading information to Primenative and/or other Members.

 

8.3 To register, a Member must choose a username and password. The Member commits to not register under a username that might offend or violate the rights of a third person. Notably, the Member will not use a username that will violate the copyrights, brands, corporate designations, business name of a third party or offend religious/racial/ethnic sensibilities of other Members.

 

8.4 The registration of a Member on the Platform allows for the creation a unique account with which they can access the Platform. This account, especially the email address used or any other identification data obtained, shall be used to communicate to the Member new Listings, offers, promotions or for survey purposes; by email or any other communication means available.

 

8.5 The username and password of a Member are strictly personal and the Member commits to maintain their confidentiality. The registered Member is the only one allowed to use the Platform via their username and password and commits to not allow anyone else access under their identity. Accessing the Platform via a Member’s username and associated password presumes that all actions on the Platform via such credentials of the Member are indeed theirs. In the event that a Member has reasonable cause to believe that their account has been compromised, it is their duty to immediately contact Primenative via email at info@primenative.com

                                                                                                       

8.6 Each Member commits to create and use only one account. Any exception to this rule must be supported by an explicit request by the Member and an express and specific authorization by Primenative . The creation or use of new accounts under a Member's own identity or a third party's without requesting and obtaining the authorization for such from Primenative could result in the immediate suspension of the accounts of the Member and all associated services.

 

8.7 Each Member commits to using the Platform and supplying Contents on the Platform in line with the Terms & Service as contained herein and in keeping with relevant laws of the Land.

 

8.8  Each Member is responsible for the Contents they publish. The Member must not carry out any actions that may be construed as: (i) violating the copyright, patents, brands, sketches and models, fabrication secrets, divulgation right or private life of the third parties, (ii) defamatory, injurious, denigrating or slanderous, (iii) discriminatory or inciting racial, religious and/or ethnic violence or hatred, (iv) obscene or pedophilia, (v) likely to be qualified as embezzlement, fraud, breach of trust or to fall as any other penal infraction and (vi) an act or attempt to encourage the transfer of money without in counterpart the delivery of products or services of a value corresponding to the amount paid and in conformity with these Terms of Service

 

8.9 A Member, outside or on the Platform, shall not commercially solicit or prospect for customers from other Members via any means whatsoever. Defaulters may have their accounts suspended or deactivated.

 

8.10 A Member has the obligation to act in good faith in his relations with Primenative, other Members and third parties.
