Brands are encouraged to communicate to the Influencer any concerns experienced during their active order in regards to the service provided by the Influencer.

    • Leaving a Brand’s feedback is a basic prerogative of a Brand. Feedback reviews will not be removed unless there are clear violations of our Terms of Service and/or our Community Standards.

    • Order cancellations can be performed on Grandee, when eligible, by Customer Support or through the Help Center per order.

    • Filing a transaction dispute or reversing a payment through your payment provider or your bank is a violation of these Terms of Service.

Note: once you have filed a dispute with your payment provider, the funds will be ineligible for a refund due to our obligations towards the payment provider.

    • In the event that a Brand or Influencer encounters an issue related to the service provided in an order, you are encouraged to use the Site’s dispute resolution tools to attempt to resolve the matter.

Order Cancellations

    • In rare circumstances where we find it appropriate, our Customer Support team may cancel a completed order even after 14 days have passed from its completion. In such cases, the amounts paid for the cancelled order will be returned to the Brand’s Payment Gateway and will be deducted from the Influencer’s Grandee Balance or, if there are no sufficient amounts in the Influencer’s Grandee Balance, from future revenues of such Influencer.

    • Orders are not eligible to be cancelled based on the quality of service/materials delivered by the Influencer if the service was rendered as described in the Service Page. Brands may rate their experience with the Influencer on the Order Page, including the overall level of service quality received.

    • Brands must use Grandee Help Center to address their concerns and desired resolution related to the service provided by their Influencer prior to contacting Customer Support. Customer Support will not take any action against Orders where the Brands failed to inform their Influencer of issues related to the Influencer’s service and will allow Influencers to provide a resolution first. This does not include non-permitted usage of Grandee.

    • Any non-permitted usage of Grandee encountered during an Order, after being reviewed by our Customer Support team, may result in the order being cancelled. This includes, but not limited to; harassment, unlawful behavior, or other violations of Grandee’s Terms of Service.

            • The user is no longer an active Grandee user due to Terms of Service violations or closure of their account.

        • Delivered Orders (after the Influencer delivered and before the order is marked as complete)

             

            • The Influencer uses the internal messaging system to extend the delivery due date to complete the requested service without providing the final delivered service to Brands. Note: Multiple reported offenses will result in permanent suspension of your account.

            • Users who have been reported to use copyright/trademark infringing materials after verification and with proof.

Refunds

     

    • Grandee does automatically refund payments made for cancelled orders back to your payment provider. Grandee returns service fees to your Grandee Balance once an order is cancelled. In any event, if the service fees were not returned to your Grandee Balance following an order cancelation, such service fees’ amount will be exempted from your next purchase on Grandee.

    • Deposit refunds (i.e. refunds directly to your payment provider) can be performed by our Customer Support team, based on the Order’s original payment amount and currency. To prevent fraud and abuse, we limit the total amount of times users can request a payment provider refund, which is subject to review by our Customer Support team. Such refunds may be subject to an additional fee.

You authorize us, directly or through third parties, to make any inquiries we consider necessary to validate your identity. You must, at our request: (1) provide further information to us, which may include your date of birth and or other information that will allow us to reasonably identify you; (2) take steps to confirm ownership of your email address or financial instruments; or (3) verify your information against third party databases or through other sources.

You must also, at our request, provide copies of identification documents (such as your passport or driver’s license). We may also ask you to provide photographic identification holding your identification together with a sign with a code that we provide as an additional identity verification step. We also reserve the right to request a video interview with you to validate this information, your identity, your background and your skills.

We reserve the right to close, suspend, or limit access to your Account, the Website and/or Grandee Services in the event we are unable to obtain or verify to our satisfaction the information which we request under this section.

We reserve the right to update your particulars on the website in order to match any identity documentation that has been provided.

17. User Services

You are solely responsible for ensuring that you comply with your obligations to other Users. If you do not, you may become liable to that User. You must ensure that you are aware of any domestic laws (including common law), international laws, statutes, ordinances and regulations relevant to you as a User, or in any other uses you make of the Website.

If another User breaches any obligation to you, you are solely responsible for enforcing any rights that you may have. For the avoidance of doubt, we have no responsibility for enforcing any rights under a User Contract.

Depending on their jurisdiction, Users may have rights under statutory warranties that cannot lawfully be excluded. Nothing in this User Agreement is intended to override a right that by applicable law may not be excluded. Nothing in this User Agreement is intended to violate any laws relating to unfair contracts, and this agreement has been specifically redrafted to ensure compliance with unfair contracts legislation. To the extent that any component of this User Agreement is in conflict with inalienable rights under local laws, all parties intend for this agreement to be read down only insofar as to be in compliance with such local laws and no further.

Each User acknowledges and agrees that the relationship between Users is that of an independent contractor. Nothing in this User Agreement creates a partnership, joint venture, agency or employment relationship between Users. Nothing in this User Agreement shall in any way be construed as forming a joint venture, partnership or an employer-employee relationship between Grandee and any User.

18. Refunds

If we agree to a refund, the funds will be received by the User via the same payment method(s) that the User used to make the original payment to us.

We may refund funds to Users irrespective of whether a User has requested funds be refunded if: (1) we are required by law or consider that we are required by law to do so; (2) we determine that refunding funds to the User will avoid any dispute or an increase in our costs; (3) we refund funds to the User in accordance with any refund policy specified by us from time to time; (4) we find out that the original payment made by the User is fraudulent; (5) the User made a duplicate payment in error; or (6) we consider, in our sole opinion, that it is likely that the refund of funds is necessary to avoid a credit card chargeback.

You can request a refund by using our contact page. Once you have made a payment you expressly agree not to initiate any chargeback request with your card issuer.

If you initiate any chargeback request or other “Request for Information” or similar process, you expressly agree and consent to us to share any and all information in relation to your agreement of these terms and conditions, in order to defeat any such chargeback request.

If you have already initiated a chargeback request with your credit card issuer, you must not request a refund of funds by contacting us and must not seek double recovery.

If we reasonably determine, having considered all the relevant circumstances, that you have made an excessive or unreasonable number of requests to refund funds back to you or chargebacks, we may suspend, limit or close your Account.

19. Inactive Accounts

User Accounts that have not been logged into for a period of time may be temporary closed, to save storage, bandwidth, support and management costs of providing hosting of the User’s profile, portfolio storage, listing in directories, promotion of your profile on the Website and elsewhere, file storage, message transmission, general administrative matters and message, until reactivated.

We reserve the right to close an Inactive Account.

20. Right to Refuse Service

We may close, suspend or limit your access to your Account without reason. Without limiting the foregoing, we may close, suspend or limit your access to your Account:

     

    • if we determine that you have breached, or are acting in breach of this User Agreement;

    • if we determine that you have infringed legal rights (resulting in actual or potential claims), including infringing Intellectual Property Rights;

    • if we determine that you have engaged, or are engaging, in fraudulent, or illegal activities;

    • you do not respond to account verification requests;

    • you do not complete account verification when requested within 3 months of the date of request;

    • you are the subject of a United Nations, Australian, EU, USA or other applicable sanctions regime, or our banking and payment relationships otherwise preclude us from conducting business with you;

    • to manage any risk of loss to us, a User, or any other person; or

    • for other reasons.

If we close your Account due to your breach of this User Agreement, you may also become liable for certain fees as described in this User Agreement.

Without limiting our other remedies, to the extent you have breached this User Agreement, you must pay us all fees owed to us and reimburse us for all losses and costs (including any and all of our employee time) and reasonable expenses (including legal fees) related to investigating such breach and collecting such fees.

You acknowledge and agree that: (1) the damages that we will sustain as a result of your breach of this User Agreement will be substantial and will potentially include (without limitation) fines and other related expenses imposed on us by our payment processors and Users and that those damages may be extremely difficult and impracticable to ascertain; (2) if you breach this User Agreement, we may fine you up to US$3,000 for each breach and/or we may take legal action against you to recover losses that are in excess of the fine amount; (3) a fine of up to US$3,000 is a presently reasonable pre-estimate or minimum estimate of our damages, considering all currently existing circumstances, including (without limitation) the relationship of the sum to the range of harm to us that reasonably could be anticipated and the anticipation that proof of actual damages may be impractical or extremely difficult.

In the event that we close your Account, you will have no claim whatsoever against us in respect of any such suspension or termination of your Account..

21. Disputes With Us

If a dispute arises between you and Grandee, our goal is to address your concerns immediately and, if we are unable to do so to your satisfaction, to provide you with a means of resolving the dispute quickly. We strongly encourage you to first contact us directly to seek a resolution by contacting us through our contact page.

For any claim, Grandee may elect to resolve the dispute in a cost effective manner through binding non-appearance-based arbitration. If Grandee elects arbitration, such arbitration will be initiated through an established alternative dispute resolution (ADR) provider, which is to be selected by you from a panel of ADR providers that Grandee will provide to you. The ADR provider and the parties must comply with the following rules: a) the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions, the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration; b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties; and c) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.

All claims you bring against Grandee must be resolved in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. All claims filed or brought contrary to this Agreement shall be considered improperly filed and a breach of this Agreement. Should you file a claim contrary to the terms of this Agreement, Grandee may recover its legal fees and costs (including in-house lawyers and paralegals), provided that Grandee has notified you in writing of the improperly filed claim, and you have failed to promptly withdraw the claim.

You agree that you will not pursue any claims arising under this User Agreement on a class or other representative basis and will not seek to coordinate or consolidate any arbitration or action hereunder with any other proceeding.

If any proceeding by or against you is commenced under any provision of any bankruptcy or insolvency law, Grandee will be entitled to recover all reasonable costs or expenses (including reasonable legal fees and expenses) incurred in connection with the enforcement of this Agreement.

Grandee’s failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive our right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches.

22. Currencies

Some of the Websites will display rates in the local currency of that Website, in addition to the actual amount. These rates are based on a conversion from the originating currency using indicative market exchange rates. You understand and agree that these rates are only indicative and the amount specified in the origin currency is the actual amount.

You must not use (or attempt to use) the Website to engage in speculative trading, which could result in substantial losses. We are not a financial services provider.

All information included on the Website in respect of currency conversion is general information only. Use of currency conversion is at your own risk. Currency conversions are final and irreversible.

23. Survival and Release

This agreement supersedes any other agreement between you and the Company. If any part of this document is found to be unenforceable, that part will be limited to the minimum extent necessary so that this document will otherwise remain in full force and effect. Our failure to enforce any part of this document is not a waiver of any of our rights to later enforce that or any other part of this document. We may assign any of our rights and obligations under this document from time to time.

If there is a dispute between participants on this site, or between users and any third party, you agree that the Company is under no obligation to become involved. In the event that you have a dispute with one or more other users, you release the Company, its officers, employees, agents, and successors from claims, demands, and damages of every kind or nature, known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, disclosed or undisclosed, arising out of or in any way related to such disputes and/or our Services. If you are a California resident, you shall and hereby do waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor.”

24. Access and Interference

You agree that you will not use any robot, spider, scraper or other automated means to access the Website via any means, including for the avoidance of doubt access to our API or application programming interface, for any purpose without our express written permission.

Additionally, you agree that you will not:

     

    • take any action that imposes or may impose (in our sole discretion, exercised reasonably) an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on our infrastructure;

    • interfere with, damage, manipulate, disrupt, disable, modify, overburden, or impair any device, software system or network connected to or used (by you or us) in relation to the Website or your Account, or assist any other person to do any of these things, or take any action that imposes, or may impose, in our discretion, an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on our infrastructure;

    • copy, reproduce, modify, create derivative works from, distribute, or publicly display any content (except for your information) from the websites without the prior express written permission of Grandee and the appropriate third party, as applicable;

    • interfere or attempt to interfere with the proper working of the Websites, services or tools, or any activities conducted on or with the Websites, services or tools; or

    • bypass our robot exclusion headers or other measures we may use to prevent or restrict access to the Website.

25. Closing Your Account

You may close your Account at any time. The option is located in the Account Settings.

Account closure is subject to:

     

    • not having any outstanding listings on the Website;

    • resolving any outstanding matters (such as a suspension or restriction on your Account); and

    • paying any outstanding fees or amounts owing on the Account.

We may retain some of your personal information to satisfy regulatory requirements and our own external obligations. Closing your account does not necessarily delete or remove all of the information we hold.

26. Privacy

We use your information as described in the Grandee Privacy Policy. If you object to your information being transferred or used in this way then you must not use our services. For the avoidance of doubt, your name and personal details shall be used for identity purposes in the normal course of conducting business in this online platform. This may include on invoices and purchase orders including but not limited to between transacting parties, including those automatically generated on payment.

27. Indemnity

You will indemnify us (and our officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint venturers and employees) against any claim or demand, including legal fees and costs, made against us by any third party due to or arising out of your breach of this Agreement, or your infringement of any law or the rights of a third party in the course of using the Website and Grandee Services.

In addition, we can apply any funds in your Account against any liabilities you owe to us or loss suffered by us as a result of your non-performance or breach of this User Agreement.

28. Security

You must immediately notify us upon becoming aware of any unauthorized access or any other security breach to the Website, your Account or the Grandee Services and do everything possible to mitigate the unauthorized access or security breach (including preserving evidence and notifying appropriate authorities). Your User Account is yours only, and you must not share your password with others. You are solely responsible for securing your password. We will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from unauthorized access of your account resulting from your failure to secure your password.

29. No Warranty as to Each User’s Purported Identity

We cannot and do not confirm each User’s purported identity on the Website. We may provide information about a User, such as a strength or risk score, geographical location, or third party background check or verification of identity or credentials. However, such information is based solely on data that a User submits and we provide such information solely for the convenience of Users and the provision of such information is not an introduction, endorsement or recommendation by us.

30. No Warranty as to Content

The Website is a dynamic time-sensitive Website. As such, information on the Website will change frequently. It is possible that some information could be considered offensive, harmful, inaccurate or misleading or mislabeled or deceptively labelled accidentally by us or accidentally or purposefully by a third party.

Our Services, the Website and all content on it are provided on an ‘as is’, ‘with all faults’ and ‘as available’ basis and without warranties of any kind either express or implied. Without limiting the foregoing, we make no representation or warranty about:

     

    • the Website or any Grandee Services;

    • the accuracy, reliability, availability, veracity, timeliness or content of the Website or any Grandee Services;

    • whether the Website or Grandee Services will be up-to-date, uninterrupted, secure, error-free or non-misleading;

    • whether defects in the Website will be corrected;

    • whether the Website, the Grandee Services or any data, content or material will be backed up or whether business continuity arrangements are in place in respect of the Website or Grandee Services;

    • any third party agreements or any guarantee of business gained by you through the Website or Grandee Services or us; or

    • the Website or Grandee Services or infrastructure on which they are based, being error or malicious code free, secure, confidential or performing at any particular standard or having any particular function.

To every extent permitted by law, we specifically disclaim any implied warranties of title, merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, quality, suitability and non-infringement.

31. Limitation of Liability

In no event shall we, our related entities, our affiliates or staff be liable, whether in contract, warranty, tort (including negligence), or any other form of liability, for:

     

    • any indirect, special, incidental or consequential damages that may be incurred by you;

    • any loss of income, business or profits (whether direct or indirect) that may be incurred by you;

    • any claim, damage, or loss which may be incurred by you as a result of any of your transactions involving the Website.

The limitations on our liability to you above shall apply whether or not we, our related entities, our affiliates or staff have been advised of the possibility of such losses or damages arising.

Notwithstanding the above provisions, nothing in this User Agreement is intended to limit or exclude any liability on the part of us and our affiliates and related entities where and to the extent that applicable law prohibits such exclusion or limitation including those within relevant state fair trading legislation.

To the extent that we are able to limit the remedies available under this User Agreement, we expressly limit our liability for breach of a non-excludable condition or warranty implied by virtue of any legislation to the following remedies (the choice of which is to be at our sole discretion) to the supply of the Grandee services again or the payment of the cost of having the Grandee services supplied again.

As some jurisdictions do not allow some of the exclusions or limitations as established above, some of these exclusions or limitations may not apply to you. In that event, the liability will be limited as far as legally possible under the applicable legislation. We may plead this User Agreement in bar to any claim, action, proceeding or suit brought by you, against us for any matter arising out of any transaction or otherwise in respect of this User Agreement.

You and we agree that you and we will only be permitted to bring claims against the other only on an individual basis and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative action or proceeding. Unless both you and we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate or join more than one person’s or party’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a consolidated, representative, or class proceeding. In addition, the arbitrator may award relief (including monetary, injunctive, and declaratory relief) only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief necessitated by that party’s individual claim(s). Any relief awarded cannot affect other Users.

33. Notices

Legal notices will be served to the email address you provide to Grandee during the registration process. Notice will be deemed given 24 hours after email is sent, unless the sending party is notified that the email address is invalid or that the email has not been delivered. Alternatively, we may give you legal notice by mail to the address provided by you during the registration process. In such a case, notice will be deemed given three days after the date of mailing.

Any notices to Grandee must be given by registered ordinary post (or if posted to or from a place outside Malaysia, by registered airmail).

This Agreement will be governed in all respects by the laws of Malaysia. We encourage you to try and resolve disputes using certified mediation (such as online dispute resolution processes). If a dispute cannot be resolved then you and Grandee irrevocably submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Malaysia.

35. Severability

The provisions of this User Agreement are severable, and if any provision of this User Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision may be removed and the remaining provisions will be enforced. This Agreement may be assigned by us to an associated entity at any time, or to a third party without your consent in the event of a sale or other transfer of some or all of our assets. In the event of any sale or transfer you will remain bound by this User Agreement.

36. Interpretation

Headings are for reference purposes only and in no way define, limit, construe or describe the scope or extent of such section.

37. No Waiver

Our failure to act with respect to an anticipated or actual breach by you or others does not waive our right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches. Nothing in this section shall exclude or restrict your liability arising out of fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation.

38. Communications

You consent to receive notices and information from us in respect of the Website and Services by electronic communication. You may withdraw this consent at any time, but if you do so we may choose to suspend or close your Account.
