Terms for JustFlip.com

Welcome, and thank you for your interest in PILF, Inc., d.b.a. FLIP (“FLIP,” “we,” or “us”) and our website at www.justflip.com, along with our related websites, networks, applications, and other services provided by us (collectively, our “Service”). These Terms of Use are a legally binding contract between you and FLIP regarding your use of the Service.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING TERMS CAREFULLY. BY CLICKING “SIGN UP” OR BY USING THE SERVICE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTOOD, AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS, INCLUDING THE FLIP PRIVACY POLICY (TOGETHER, THE “TERMS”). If you are not eligible, or do not agree to the Terms, then you do not have our permission to use the Service.

These Terms provide that all disputes between you and FLIP will be resolved by BINDING ARBITRATION. YOU AGREE TO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend your rights under this contract, except for matters that may be taken to small claims court. Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR and NOT a judge or jury, and your claims cannot be brought as a class action. Please review Section 20 (“Dispute Resolution and Arbitration”) for the details regarding your agreement to arbitrate any disputes with FLIP.

  1. FLIP Service Overview. FLIP is an online venue for buying and selling hard-to-find, rare, and limited edition sneakers. Buyers may place bids on sneakers in time-limited auctions provided by a variety of sellers.

  2. Eligibility. These Terms apply to all users of the Service, including users who are sellers, buyers, or content contributors. You must be at least 13 years of age to use the Service. By agreeing to these Terms, you represent and warrant to us that: (a) you are at least 13 years of age; (b) you have not previously been suspended or removed from the Service; and (c) your registration and your use of the Service is in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. If you are using the Service on behalf of an entity, organization, or company, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that organization to these Terms and you agree to be bound by these Terms on behalf of that organization.

  3. Accounts and Registration. To access most features of the Service, you must register for an account. When you register for an account, you may be required to provide us with some information about yourself, such as your email address or other contact information. You agree that the information you provide to us is accurate and that you will keep it accurate and up-to-date at all times. When you register, you will be asked to provide a password. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password, and you accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account. If you have reason to believe that your account is no longer secure, then you must immediately notify us at support@justflip.com.

  4. Use of the Service

    • The FLIP Venue. FLIP allows users who comply with these Terms to offer, sell, and buy goods. FLIP is not directly involved in the transaction between buyers and sellers. FLIP does not pre-screen users or the content or information provided by users. FLIP cannot ensure that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction. FLIP does, however, ensure that buyers will be refunded for items they do not receive. FLIP does not transfer legal ownership of items from the seller to the buyer. FLIP cannot guarantee the identity or age of any user.

    • Listing and Selling. By listing an item on the Service, you warrant that all aspects of an item comply with FLIP’s published policies, including these Terms. You also warrant that you have all rights required to legally sell the item. You must accurately describe your item and all terms of sale in your FLIP profile. Your listings may only include text descriptions, graphics, pictures, and other content relevant to the sale of that item. All items must be listed in an appropriate category with appropriate tags. Each listing must accurately and completely describe the item/items for sale in that listing. Each unique item must have its own listing.

    • Binding Sale. All sales are binding and final. Sellers must promptly complete their transactions with buyers unless there is an exceptional circumstance, as determined by FLIP in its sole discretion, such as: (a) the buyer fails to meet the terms of the seller’s listing (such as payment method); or (b) the seller cannot authenticate the buyer’s identity. Buyers must deliver appropriate payment for items purchased, unless there is an exceptional circumstance or the buyer is FLIP fulfilling a guaranteed sales price (GSP), in which case the sale may be canceled due to errors made in pricing the item, condition or quality, pickup scheduling, or any other reason, at FLIP’s discretion.

    • Meetings. Users may arrange and attend meetings (“Meetings”) with other users for delivery of items sold via the Service. You are solely responsible for your interactions with other users. You must, and agree to, comply with the Terms and any applicable local, state, or federal laws in arranging and attending any Meetings. FLIP does not supervise or control Meetings, and does not screen any users attending Meetings.

    • Item Receipt. Buyers have 24 hours from the closing of the auction for an item to coordinate the pick up or arrange delivery of that item before the seller may cancel the sale, refunding the purchase price to the original payment method. Sellers are responsible for making themselves available to buyers to pick up items during the times they specified in the pickup availability section of the respective item listings.

    • Item Acceptance. Upon the earliest of: (a) both parties agreeing via the Service that the sale of an item is complete; and (b) 48 hours from the closing of the auction for an item, the seller may request payment from FLIP, prompting confirmation from the buyer that the item has been received and accepted, as-is. A text message confirming item acceptance is then sent to the buyer, or the buyer may accept the item by confirming receipt in the Service. Buyers must inspect the condition of the item and should accept the item only if it is as described in the item listing. By confirming item acceptance, the buyer agrees to pay the sale amount by transmitting the funds through the chosen payment provider. Once an item has been accepted by a buyer, that item may not be returned to the seller and is not eligible for refund.

  5. Payment; Payment Policies; Changes in Fees; Refunds

    • Payment. Currently, access to the Service is provided free of charge, but FLIP may begin charging fees for access to the Service, or to certain features of the Service, at any time. Before you pay any fees, you will have an opportunity to review and accept the fees that you will be charged. All fees are in U.S. dollars and are non-refundable, except as described below in Section 5.4. FLIP will charge the payment method you specify as described in these Terms. You authorize FLIP to charge all sums for your purchases as described in these Terms to that payment method. If you pay any fees with a credit card, FLIP may seek pre-authorization of your credit card account prior to your purchase to verify that the credit card is valid and has the necessary funds or credit available to cover your purchase. If you use the Service to update or cancel any existing authorized payment, it may take up to 10 business days for the update or cancellation to take effect.

    • Fees and Payment Policies. For more information on FLIP’s fees and payment processing, please review the FLIP Fees Policy and FLIP Payment Policy.

    • FLIP’s Fees; Changes. FLIP charges a percentage of the sales price when an item is sold (“FLIP Fee”). When you list an item, you will have the opportunity to review and accept the FLIP Fee, and any other fees, that you will be charged. If FLIP changes the FLIP Fee or any other fees associated with the Service, including by adding additional fees or charges, FLIP will provide you 14 days’ advance notice of those changes by displaying a notice on the FLIP website home page. If you do not accept the changes, FLIP may discontinue providing the Service to you.

    • Refunds. In some cases, buyers and sellers may not be able to coordinate the pickup of an item within a reasonable amount of time of the closing of the auction or, despite a seller’s intentions, some material information may be left out of an item’s description. If an item is not as described or was not received, buyers should NOT accept an item. If an item has already been accepted, FLIP will authorize a refund only upon the seller’s express consent. Eligible refunds can be requested through the Service or by e-mailing support@justflip.com and will, if approved, be made by crediting the payment method used in the original sale.

  6. User Content

    • User Content Generally. Certain features of the Service may permit users to upload content to the Service, including photos, images, data, text, and other types of works (“User Content”) and to publish User Content on the Service. You retain copyright and any other proprietary rights that you may hold in the User Content that you post to the Service. Certain features of the Service may permit you to re-post User Content to a third-party website. If you choose to display a FLIP-hosted image on another website, the image must provide a link back to the item’s listing page on FLIP.

    • Limited License Grant to FLIP. By posting or publishing User Content, you grant FLIP a worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, royalty-free, fully paid right and license (with the right to sublicense) to host, store, transfer, display, perform, reproduce, modify for the purpose of formatting for display, and distribute your User Content, in whole or in part, in any media formats and through any media channels now known or hereafter developed.

    • Limited License Grant to Other Users. By posting or sharing User Content with other users of the Service, you grant those users a non-exclusive license to access and use that User Content as permitted by these Terms and the functionality of the Service.

    • User Content Representations and Warranties. You are solely responsible for your User Content and the consequences of posting or publishing User Content. By posting or publishing User Content, you affirm, represent, and warrant that:

      • you are the creator and owner of the User Content, or have the necessary licenses, rights, consents, and permissions to authorize FLIP and users of the Service to use and distribute your User Content as necessary to exercise the licenses granted by you in this section, in the manner contemplated by FLIP, the Service, and these Terms; and

      • your User Content, and the use of your User Content as contemplated by these Terms, does not and will not: (i) infringe, violate, or misappropriate any third-party right, including any copyright, trademark, patent, trade secret, moral right, privacy right, right of publicity, or any other intellectual property or proprietary right; (ii) slander, defame, libel, or invade the right of privacy, publicity or other property rights of any other person; or (iii) cause FLIP to violate any law or regulation.

    • User Content Disclaimer. We are under no obligation to edit or control User Content that you or other users post or publish, and will not be in any way responsible or liable for User Content. FLIP may, however, at any time and without prior notice, screen, remove, edit, or block any User Content that in our sole judgment violates these Terms or is otherwise objectionable. You understand that when using the Service you will be exposed to User Content from a variety of sources and acknowledge that User Content may be inaccurate, offensive, indecent, or objectionable. You agree to waive, and do waive, any legal or equitable right or remedy you have or may have against FLIP with respect to User Content. We expressly disclaim any and all liability in connection with User Content. If notified by a user or content owner that User Content allegedly does not conform to these Terms, we may investigate the allegation and determine in our sole discretion whether to remove the User Content, which we reserve the right to do at any time and without notice. For clarity, FLIP does not permit copyright-infringing activities on the Service.

All Additional Terms are incorporated by this reference into, and made a part of, these Terms.

  12. Modification of these Terms. We reserve the right, at our discretion, to change these Terms on a going-forward basis at any time. Please check these Terms periodically for changes.

  16. Disclaimers; No Warranties

    THE SERVICE AND ALL MATERIALS AND CONTENT AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SERVICE ARE PROVIDED “ AS IS ” AND ON AN “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. THE FLIP ENTITIES DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, RELATING TO THE SERVICE AND ALL MATERIALS AND CONTENT AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SERVICE, INCLUDING: (A) ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, QUIET ENJOYMENT, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT; AND (B) ANY WARRANTY ARISING OUT OF COURSE OF DEALING, USAGE, OR TRADE. THE FLIP ENTITIES DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICE OR ANY PORTION OF THE SERVICE, OR ANY MATERIALS OR CONTENT OFFERED THROUGH THE SERVICE, WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, SECURE, OR FREE OF ERRORS, VIRUSES, OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS, AND DO NOT WARRANT THAT ANY OF THOSE ISSUES WILL BE CORRECTED.

    NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED BY YOU FROM THE SERVICE OR ANY MATERIALS OR CONTENT AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SERVICE WILL CREATE ANY WARRANTY REGARDING ANY OF THE FLIP ENTITIES OR THE SERVICE THAT IS NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THESE TERMS. YOU ASSUME ALL RISK FOR ANY DAMAGE THAT MAY RESULT FROM YOUR USE OF OR ACCESS TO THE SERVICE, YOUR DEALING WITH ANY OTHER SERVICE USER, AND ANY MATERIALS OR CONTENT AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SERVICE. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT YOU USE THE SERVICE, AND USE, ACCESS, DOWNLOAD, OR OTHERWISE OBTAIN MATERIALS OR CONTENT THROUGH THE SERVICE AND ANY ASSOCIATED SITES OR SERVICES, AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION AND RISK, AND THAT YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR PROPERTY (INCLUDING YOUR COMPUTER SYSTEM OR MOBILE DEVICE USED IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICE), OR THE LOSS OF DATA THAT RESULTS FROM THE USE OF THE SERVICE OR THE DOWNLOAD OR USE OF THAT MATERIAL OR CONTENT.

    SOME JURISDICTIONS MAY PROHIBIT A DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES AND YOU MAY HAVE OTHER RIGHTS THAT VARY FROM JURISDICTION TO JURISDICTION.

  17. Limitation of Liability

    IN NO EVENT WILL THE FLIP ENTITIES BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES (INCLUDING DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, GOODWILL, OR ANY OTHER INTANGIBLE LOSS) ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO YOUR ACCESS TO OR USE OF, OR YOUR INABILITY TO ACCESS OR USE, THE SERVICE OR ANY MATERIALS OR CONTENT ON THE SERVICE, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), STATUTE, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, AND WHETHER OR NOT ANY FLIP ENTITY HAS BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF DAMAGE.

    EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN SECTION 20.4(iii), THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF THE FLIP ENTITIES TO YOU FOR ALL CLAIMS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE USE OF OR ANY INABILITY TO USE ANY PORTION OF THE SERVICE OR OTHERWISE UNDER THESE TERMS, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT, OR OTHERWISE, IS LIMITED TO THE GREATER OF: (A) THE AMOUNT YOU HAVE PAID TO FLIP FOR ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE SERVICE IN THE 12 MONTHS PRIOR TO THE EVENT(S) OR CIRCUMSTANCES GIVING RISE TO CLAIM; OR (B) $100.

    SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES. ACCORDINGLY, THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

    EACH PROVISION OF THESE TERMS THAT PROVIDES FOR A LIMITATION OF LIABILITY, DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES, OR EXCLUSION OF DAMAGES IS INTENDED TO AND DOES ALLOCATE THE RISKS BETWEEN THE PARTIES UNDER THESE TERMS. THIS ALLOCATION IS AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN THE PARTIES. EACH OF THESE PROVISIONS IS SEVERABLE AND INDEPENDENT OF ALL OTHER PROVISIONS OF THESE TERMS. THE LIMITATIONS IN THIS SECTION 17 WILL APPLY EVEN IF ANY LIMITED REMEDY FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.

  18. Governing Law. These Terms are governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to conflict of law principles. If a lawsuit or court proceeding is permitted under these Terms, then you and FLIP agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state courts and federal courts located within Alameda County, California for the purpose of litigating any dispute. We operate the Service from our offices in California, and we make no representation that Materials included in the Service are appropriate or available for use in other locations.
  19. General. These Terms, together with the Privacy Policy and any other agreements expressly incorporated by reference into these Terms, are the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between you and FLIP regarding your use of the Service. Except as expressly permitted above, these Terms may be amended only by a written agreement signed by authorized representatives of all parties to these Terms. You may not assign or transfer these Terms or your rights under these Terms, in whole or in part, by operation of law or otherwise, without our prior written consent. We may assign these Terms at any time without notice or consent. The failure to require performance of any provision will not affect our right to require performance at any other time after that, nor will a waiver by us of any breach or default of these Terms, or any provision of these Terms, be a waiver of any subsequent breach or default or a waiver of the provision itself. Use of section headers in these Terms is for convenience only and will not have any impact on the interpretation of any provision. If any part of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable, the unenforceable part will be given effect to the greatest extent possible, and the remaining parts will remain in full force and effect. Upon termination of these Terms, Sections 2, and 4 through 21, along with the Privacy Policy and any other accompanying agreements, will survive.
  20. Dispute Resolution and Arbitration.

    • Generally. In the interest of resolving disputes between you and FLIP in the most expedient and cost effective manner, you and FLIP agree that every dispute arising in connection with these Terms will be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of these Terms, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the termination of these Terms. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND FLIP ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
    • Exceptions. Despite the provisions of Section 20.1, nothing in these Terms will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of either party to: (a) bring an individual action in small claims court; (b) pursue an enforcement action through the applicable federal, state, or local agency if that action is available; (c) seek injunctive relief in a court of law; or (d) to file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim.
    • Arbitrator. Any arbitration between you and FLIP will be settled under the Federal Arbitration Act, and governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting FLIP.
    • Notice; Process. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by certified U.S. Mail or by Federal Express (signature required) or, only if such other party has not provided a current physical address, then by electronic mail (“Notice”). FLIP's address for Notice is: PILF, Inc., dba FLIP, 801 Zephyr Drive, Oakland, CA 94607. The Notice must: (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). The parties will make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if the parties do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or FLIP may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or FLIP must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. If the dispute is finally resolved through arbitration in your favor, FLIP will pay you the highest of the following: (i) the amount awarded by the arbitrator, if any; (ii) the last written settlement amount offered by FLIP in settlement of the dispute prior to the arbitrator’s award; or (iii) $1,000.
    • Fees. If you commence arbitration in accordance with these Terms, FLIP will reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for more than $10,000, in which case the payment of any fees will be decided by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearing will take place at a location to be agreed upon in Alameda county, California, but if the claim is for $10,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted: (a) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (b) through a non-appearance based telephone hearing; or (c) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules in the county (or parish) of your billing address. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In that case, you agree to reimburse FLIP for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.
    • No Class Actions. YOU AND FLIP AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and FLIP agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
    • Modifications to this Arbitration Provision. If FLIP makes any future change to this arbitration provision, other than a change to FLIP's address for Notice, you may reject the change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to FLIP's address for Notice, in which case your account with FLIP will be immediately terminated and this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the changes you rejected will survive.
    • Enforceability. If Section 20.6 is found to be unenforceable or if the entirety of this Section 20 is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 20 will be null and void and, in that case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 18 will govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms.
  21. Consent to Electronic Communications. By using the Service, you consent to receiving certain electronic communications from us as further described in our Privacy Policy. Please read our Privacy Policy to learn more about our electronic communications practices. You agree that any notices, agreements, disclosures, or other communications that we send to you electronically will satisfy any legal communication requirements, including that those communications be in writing.

  22. Contact Information. The Service is offered by PILF, Inc., located at 801 Zephyr Drive, Oakland, CA 94607. You may contact us by sending correspondence to that address or by emailing us at support@justflip.com

  23. Notice Regarding Apple. If you are using our mobile applications on an iOS device, the terms of this Section 23 apply. You acknowledge that these Terms are between you and FLIP only, not with Apple, and Apple is not responsible for the Service or its content. Apple has no obligation to furnish any maintenance or support services with respect to the Service. If the Service fails to conform to any applicable warranty, you may notify Apple and Apple will refund any applicable purchase price for the mobile application to you; and, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Apple has no other warranty obligation with respect to the Service. Apple is not responsible for addressing any claim by you or any third party relating to the Service or your possession or use of the Service, including: (a) product liability claims; (b) any claim that the Service fails to conform to any applicable legal or regulatory requirement; and (c) claims arising under consumer protection or similar legislation. Apple is not responsible for the investigation, defense, settlement or discharge of any third party claim that the Service or your possession and use of the mobile application infringe that third party’s intellectual property rights.
