TERMS OF SERVICE

Last Updated: May 1, 2022

These Terms of Service ("Terms") apply to your use of and the purchase and sale of products through the marketplace on GeekMarket (the "Marketplace"), which is provided and hosted by Metaccountant Inc. d/b/a Marketbase, a Delaware corporation (" Marketbase", "us", "we" or "our" as the context may require) on behalf of BoardGameGeek (the "Company").

PLEASE READ THESE TERMS CAREFULLY. BY USING THE MARKETPLACE, YOU ACCEPT AND AGREE TO BE BOUND AND ABIDE BY THESE TERMS AND OUR PRIVACY POLICY, FOUND AT PRIVACY POLICY. If you do not want to agree to these Terms or our Privacy Policy, you must not use or obtain products or services from the Marketplace.

The Marketplace is offered and available to users who are 18 years of age or older (or have reached the age of majority where they reside). Minors under 18 and at least 13 years of age are only permitted to use the Marketplace through an account owned by a parent or legal guardian with their permission and under their direct supervision. By registering for an account on the Marketplace, you represent and warrant that you are of legal age to form a binding contract. If you are registering on behalf of a business (corporation, organization or other legal entity), you represent that you have the authority to enter into these Terms and legally bind the user. If you do not meet these requirements, you must not access or use the Marketplace.

Changes to the Terms

We may revise and update these Terms from time to time in our sole discretion. All changes are effective immediately when we post them, and apply to all access to and use of the Marketplace thereafter.

Your continued use of the Marketplace following the posting of revised Terms means that you accept and agree to the changes. You are expected to check this page from time to time so you are aware of any changes, as they are binding on you.

The Marketplace

The Marketplace is an online consumer-to-consumer marketplace that allows registered users to offer, sell and purchase goods from other registered users. The Marketplace is hosted by Marketbase, and managed by the Company and Marketbase. You must have an internet connection to access and use the Marketplace. Please note that Marketbase does not sell or purchase any goods listed on the Marketplace.

Marketbase cannot guarantee that a user will complete a transaction or guarantee the true identity, age, or nationality of a user. We encourage you to communicate directly with potential transaction partners through the tools available through your Marketplace account or use other services for user verification. Additionally, as a consumer-to-consumer venue, Marketbase cannot and does not provide any warranties as to the existence, legality, quality, safety, fitness or merchantability of any items sold by any user of the Marketplace.

You acknowledge and agree that the Marketplace is venue for consumer-to-consumer sales and Marketbase is not responsible or liable for any content, including without limitation text, information, usernames, graphics, images, audio, videos, and links posted by you, other users or third parties. YOUR USE OF THE MARKETPLACE IS AT YOUR OWN RISK.

The Company may have user guidelines and rules relating to use of the Marketplace. Contact the Company directly at support@marketbase.app for more information.

Accessing the Marketplace and Account Security

We reserve the right to withdraw or amend any services or functions of the Marketplace, in our sole discretion without notice. We will not be liable if for any reason all or any part of the Marketplace is unavailable at any time or for any period.

To buy and sell items on the Marketplace, you are required to register an account. It is a condition of your use of the Marketplace that all the information you provide is correct, current, and complete. You agree that all information you provide to register with the Marketplace or otherwise, including, but not limited to, through the use of any interactive features on the Marketplace, is governed by our Privacy Policy, and you consent to all actions we take with respect to your information consistent with our Privacy Policy.

If you choose, or are provided with, a user name, password, or any other piece of information as part of our security procedures, you must treat such information as confidential, and you must not disclose it to any other person or entity. You also acknowledge that your account is personal to you and agree not to provide any other person with access to the Marketplace or portions of it using your user name, password, or other security information. You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized access to or use of your user name or password or any other breach of security. You also agree to ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. You should use particular caution when accessing your account from a public or shared computer so that others are not able to view or record your password or other personal information.

We have the right to disable any user name, password, or other identifier, whether chosen by you or provided by us, at any time in our sole discretion for any or no reason, including if, in our opinion, you have violated any provision of these Terms.

Fees and Payment Policy

Creating an account on the Marketplace is free. However, a percentage fee will be charged for each transaction carried out on the Marketplace. By using the Marketplace, you agree to our Payment Policy, which is outlined below and subject to change.

Sale Transactions will take place via Marketbase's third party payment provider. A list of accepted forms of payment will be provided when making a purchase. In order to list items for sale, you must connect a Stripe merchant account to your Marketplace account in order to receive proceeds from the sale.

Except for Oregon and Montana, all U.S. states have enacted marketplace facilitator tax laws that require Marketbase to collect sales tax on sales that occur on the Marketplace. All applicable sales taxes will be reflected as a separate line item on each purchase receipt and it is the buyer's responsibility to pay all taxes due. Aside from the limited circumstances set forth above, you are responsible for collecting and paying any taxes associated with using and making sales through the Marketplace. Marketbase will issue 1099-K forms to certain sellers to comply with IRS and state requirements, as needed. Contact Marketbase at support@marketbase.app for more information.

Sellers are obligated to resolve any disputes with other users that are a result of purchases or sales of goods, including after termination or suspension of your Marketplace account. Funds may be held for up to 180 days to seek reimbursement from a seller in any of the following circumstances: (a) when we provide a refund to a buyer because a seller did not deliver the goods or we otherwise determine that a refund is warranted in a particular circumstance; (b) when we discover erroneous or duplicate transactions related to a seller; or (c) when we receive a chargeback or payment reversal from a buyer's payment instrument issuer for the amount of a buyer's purchase from a seller. We may obtain reimbursement of any amounts owed by a seller to Marketbase by charging any of the seller's payment Instrument(s) on file with the Marketplace or seeking reimbursement by any other lawful means, including by using third-party collections services. You authorize us to use any or all of these methods to seek reimbursement.

Returns and Refunds

A buyer can request a return within seven (7) days of confirmed delivery if:

  • the item received is substantially different from that described in the listing.
  • the item is damaged or defective.
  • the wrong item was received.
  • the item is potentially counterfeit.

Except as provided above, no seller is required to approve a return. To request a return, contact the seller directly.

If a return is approved, Marketbase will refund the purchase price, less the original shipping and handling costs, provided such return is made within 30 days of approval by the seller with valid proof of purchase and provided such products are returned in their original condition. No returns of any type will be accepted without prior approval of the seller.

Returns are reviewed on a case by case basis. Depending on the reason for the return, buyers or sellers may be responsible for shipping and handling charges on returned items and bear the risk of loss during shipment. We therefore strongly recommend that you fully insure your return shipment against loss or damage and that you use a carrier that can provide you with proof of delivery for your protection.

Refunds are processed within approximately three business days of the seller's receipt of your merchandise. Marketbase will refund the buyer to the original form of payment.

If you have an issue with a purchase, the seller generally will be able to solve it for you. However, if after 3 business days the seller hasn't been able to resolve your problem, you can ask us to step in and help. For questions regarding billing, returns, refunds and chargebacks, contact the Marketbase at market@boardgamegeek.com.

Shipping and Handling

Sellers are responsible for the shipment of all items sold on the Marketplace to buyers. Users are required to comply with the Company's rules and guidelines for shipping and handling. Marketbase is not liable for unshipped, late, damaged or lost packages.

Marketplace Support

Marketbase and the Company provide technical and customer support services with respect to the Marketplace from 9AM to 5PM PT Monday thru Friday (excluding U.S. holidays) via email at market@boardgamegeek.com.

Please note that if the Company suspends your account on its website for any reason, your access to and use of the Marketplace will also be suspended.

Arbitration and Class Waiver; Governing Law

1. Pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA), you and Marketbase agree that except as specifically provided in Paragraphs 3 and 6 below, all disputes of any nature whatsoever between you and Marketbase will be resolved by binding arbitration in accordance with the terms and procedures set forth below. Except as provided in Paragraphs 3 and 6 below, you and Marketbase each waive their rights to have any dispute between them decided by a court, judge or jury.

2. The arbitration will be conducted in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules (" Rules") of the American Arbitration Association (the "AAA"), except that the provisions of this Agreement to Arbitrate Disputes will control and take precedence in the event of any conflict or inconsistency between the AAA Rules and this Agreement. The AAA Rules are available for review on the AAA's website at https://www.adr.org/sites/default/files/Commercial%20Rules.pdf . The arbitrator will be a licensed attorney or retired judge with substantial experience in the law applicable to and underlying the dispute. Unless the parties otherwise agree, any hearing conducted in person as part of the arbitration will be held in the same county as Marketbases principal place of business.

3. All disputes between you and Marketbase will be resolved only on an individual basis. You and Marketbase each specifically agree that no dispute between them may be brought, heard, or arbitrated in any forum (whether as a judicial proceeding in court, as an administrative proceeding before an agency or other body, or in arbitration) as a class, collective, representative, or private attorney general action, and they further agree that neither you nor Marketbase may be a party or member in any such class, collective, or representative proceeding. The preceding sentence will hereafter be referred to as the "Class Action Waiver." Notwithstanding any other provision of these Terms and Conditions, any dispute regarding the validity, enforceability, or breach of the Class Action Waiver may be resolved only by a court and not by an arbitrator. In any case in which: (a) the dispute is filed as a class, collective, representative, or private attorney general action and (b) there is a final judicial determination that the Class Action Waiver is unenforceable with respect to some or all of the claims or causes of action brought or asserted, the class, collective, representative and/or private attorney general action must to that extent be litigated in a civil court of competent jurisdiction, but the claims or causes of action with respect to which the Class Action Waiver is enforceable shall be resolved on an individual basis in arbitration.

4. You and Marketbase will pay their own costs for the arbitration, including attorneys' fees, but the arbitrator may, in his or her final ruling, award the prevailing party some or all of its attorneys' fees. The arbitrator may issue orders allowing the parties to conduct discovery sufficient to allow each party to prepare that party's claims and/or defenses, taking into consideration that arbitration is designed to be a speedy and efficient method for resolving claims. Documents shall be exchanged in accordance with the AAA Rules, and each side shall be allowed to conduct at least three (3) depositions. The filing of dispositive motions shall be permitted in the arbitration and shall not be disfavored, and the standard for deciding such motions shall be the same as under the provisions of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure governing such motions. Except as otherwise provided in the AAA Rules, the arbitrator may award all remedies to which a party is entitled under applicable law. The decision or award by the arbitrator will be in writing and will contain findings of fact and conclusions of law.

5. You or Marketbase may appeal the decision or award of the arbitrator pursuant to the AAA's Optional Appellate Arbitration Rules (" Appellate Rules"), and the decision or award shall not be considered final until after the time for filing the notice of appeal pursuant to the Appellate Rules has expired. The Appellate Rules are available for review on the AAA's website at https://www.adr.org/. Appeals must be initiated within thirty (30) days of receipt of the underlying decision or award, as provided in Rule A-3 of the Appellate Rules, by filing a Notice of Appeal with any AAA office. The members of the Appeal Tribunal will be licensed attorneys or retired judges with substantial experience in the law applicable to and underlying the dispute. You and Marketbase will each pay their own costs incurred in connection with any appeal, including attorneys' fees. The Appeal Tribunal may reallocate the fees and expenses of the appeal but only in accordance with applicable law that would have applied had the appeal been heard by an appellate court, as determined by the Appeal Tribunal. Following the appeal process, the decision rendered by the Appeal Tribunal may be entered as a final order in any court having jurisdiction.

6. Notwithstanding the provisions of these Terms and Conditions, either you or Marketbase may, pending the initiation or completion of arbitration, seek and obtain from a court of competent jurisdiction any provisional injunctive relief to which you or Marketbase would otherwise be entitled under applicable law (a) to enforce the other party's obligations of confidentiality, or (b) to protect your or Marketbase's intellectual property rights. The court and not the arbitrator will determine the court's right and jurisdiction to hear and to grant or deny any such request for provisional injunctive relief.

7. The FAA will govern any arbitration conducted between you and Marketbase. If the FAA is found not to apply, then the arbitration shall proceed under Delaware law. These Terms and Conditions and the rights and obligations of you and Marketbase shall be governed, construed, and interpreted in accordance with Delaware law.

Limitation on Time to File Claims

ANY CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OR THE MARKETPLACE MUST BE COMMENCED WITHIN ONE YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES; OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION OR CLAIM IS PERMANENTLY BARRED. ' 

Waiver and Severability

No waiver by Marketbase of any term or condition set out in these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure of Marketbase to assert a right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

If any provision of these Terms is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent such that the remaining provisions of the Terms will continue in full force and effect.

Entire Agreement

These Terms, our Privacy Policy and any other terms now or hereafter provided by Marketbase constitute the sole and entire agreement between you and Marketbase regarding the Marketplace and supersede all prior and contemporaneous understandings, agreements, representations, and warranties, both written and oral, regarding the Marketplace.
