Hi, there! We're PopUp Stories s.r.o ("ShopUp Stories," "we," "us," or "our"), and we're happy to welcome you to ShopUpStories.com. Before getting started, please be sure to read our Terms of Service carefully.
If you are signing up for a ShopUp Stories account as a consumer (hereinafter referred to as a "Shopper"), you'll need to read and agree to everything in this document except section 6 (For Shop Owners), section 7 (Payments) and such other terms that are directly referring to Shop Owners. If you are a Shop Owner (as defined below) you must read and agree to all terms outlined in this document, which is a legally binding agreement. If you do not agree to the terms that apply to you, you may not use this Service.
The Terms may be available in languages other than English. To the extent of any inconsistencies or conflicts between these English Terms and ShopUp Stories's Terms of Service available in another language, the most current English version of the Terms available at [https://ShopUp Stories.com/terms-of-service] shall govern. Questions about the Terms should be directed to [ShopUp Stories.com/ask]
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR USERS BASED IN THE UNITED STATES: YOU SHOULD READ CAREFULLY THE SECTION BELOW TITLED "DISPUTES AND CHOICE OF LAW". IT CONTAINS A BINDING ARBITRATION AGREEMENT AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER, AND THESE THINGS AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS.
Description of Service
ShopUp Stories is an online platform that offers Shop Owners the tools necessary to create a micro retail shop in a retail store (the "Shop"), and to start marketing and selling their products instantly. ShopUp Stories also offers its users a global community (the "Marketplace"), where Shop Owners can market and sell their goods ("Products"). The Marketplace offers increased interaction, traffic, and exposure to shoppers, and additional sales accompanied by a commission fee as applicable.
You understand that it is the Shop Owner who is solely responsible for customer service and the quality and marketing of the Products. ShopUp Stories itself does not offer, market, or sell the Products. ShopUp Stories isn't a party to any transaction between buyers and sellers of Products, and we have no control over—or responsibility for—the quality, safety, legality, or efficacy of any Product. It is the Shop Owner, not ShopUp Stories, who provides descriptions and other information about the Products. We cannot control whether the descriptions and user content associated with the Products are truthful and accurate, and by using the Service, you agree that you understand that ShopUp Stories is not responsible for any statements, faults, or omissions concerning the Products. The Shop Owner is responsible for complying with all applicable laws including consumers' rights.
You may not use the ShopUp Stories Service for any illegal or unauthorized purpose nor may you, in the use of the Service, violate any laws in your jurisdiction, including but not limited to copyright laws, the laws applicable to you in your customer's jurisdiction, or the laws of Czech Republic. You will comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations in your use of the Service. All Shop Owners are prohibited to sell Prohibited Products, further defined.
We reserve the right not to provide Services in respect to any Transaction you submit which we believe in our sole discretion is in violation of this Agreement, any other ShopUp Stories or Third Party Provider´s agreement, or exposes you, ShopUp Stories, Third Party Providers, or any other third party to actual or potential risk or harm, including but not limited to fraud and other criminal acts. You are hereby granting us authorization to share information with Third Party Services, other third parties, or law enforcement about you, your Transactions, or your ShopUp Stories Payments Account.
The Service is controlled and operated from facilities in Czech Republic and the European Union. We make no representations that the Service is appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who access or use the Service from other jurisdictions do so at their own will and are entirely responsible for compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, including but not limited to consumer rights, Taxes, and export and import regulations. You may not use the Service if you are a resident of a country embargoed by Czech Republic or any of the European Union Member States or are a foreign person or entity blocked or denied by the Government of Czech Republic or any of the European Union Members States.
You understand that your user content (not including credit card information), may be transferred unencrypted and involve (a) transmissions over various networks; and (b) changes to conform and adapt to technical requirements of connecting networks or devices.
We may modify all or any part of the terms and conditions of the Agreement from time to time by posting the relevant amended and restated terms and conditions on ShopUp Stories's website. This may occur without notice to you. Such amendments to the Agreement are effective as of the date of posting. You are therefore encouraged to check the Agreement regularly so that you are aware of your current rights and obligations. Your continued use of ShopUpStories.com (the "Website"), after the publication of amendments of the Agreement, constitutes your binding acceptance of the updated terms and conditions. If at any time the terms and conditions of the Agreement are no longer acceptable to you, you should immediately cease to use the Website.
Support, including technical support to Shop Owners, is provided to Account Owners and is only available via [ShopUpStories.com/ask].
ShopUp Stories Account
You must be 16 years or older—or at least the age of majority in the jurisdiction where you reside or from which you use this Service—to start an account. If you are 16 years or older, but under the age of majority in your jurisdiction, please review this Agreement with a parent or guardian to ensure its terms are understood.
To access and use the Services, you must register for a ShopUp Stories account ("Account"). The User agrees that any personal information required by ShopUp Stories to register an Account ("Registration Information") will be provided accurately and completely, and also agrees to keep Registration Information fully up to date at all times. You hereby authorize us, at our own discretion, to retrieve additional information about you from third parties, including credit bureaus and other information providers and identification services. ShopUp Stories may reject your application for an Account, or cancel an existing Account, for any reason, at our sole discretion.
The person signing up for the Service will be the contracting party ("Account Owner") for the purposes of this Agreement, and will be the person who is authorized to use any corresponding account we may provide to the Account Owner in connection with the Service.
If you are signing up for the Service on behalf of your employer, your employer shall be the Account Owner and you shall represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind your employer to this Agreement.
You are responsible for keeping your password secure. ShopUp Stories cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage from your failure to maintain the security of your Account and password. You agree to immediately notify ShopUp Stories of any security breach of your Account.
We have no obligation to accept anyone as an Account Owner, and we have sole and complete discretion to accept or reject any Account Owner.
We reserve the right to refuse Service to—and to terminate an Account for—anyone for any reason at any time.
You acknowledge that ShopUp Stories will use the email address you provide as our primary method of communication.
You are responsible for all activity and content such as data, graphics, photos, videos, and links that are uploaded under your ShopUp Stories Account ("User Content"). You agree not to transmit any worms or viruses, or any code of a destructive nature using your ShopUp Stories Account.

ShopUp Stories rights
We reserve the right to modify or terminate the Service for any reason, without prior notice at any time.
We may, but have no obligation to, remove User Content and Accounts containing material that we determine at our sole discretion is unlawful, offensive, threatening, libelous, defamatory, pornographic, obscene, or otherwise objectionable—or that violates any party's intellectual property or the terms and conditions of this Agreement. For further information, see [Prohibited Products].
Verbal or written abuse of any kind (including threats of abuse or retribution) toward any ShopUp Stories customer, ShopUp Stories employee, member, or officer will result in immediate Account termination.
ShopUp Stories does not pre-screen User Content and it is within our sole capability to refuse or remove any User Content that is available via the Service.
In the event of a dispute regarding Account ownership, we reserve the right to request documentation to determine or confirm Account ownership. Documentation may include, but is not limited to, a scanned copy of your business license, a government issued photo ID, the last four digits of your credit card on file, etc.
ShopUp Stories retains the right to determine, using our sole judgment, rightful Account ownership and to transfer an Account to its rightful owner. If we are unable to reasonably determine the rightful Account owner, ShopUp Stories reserves the right to temporarily disable an Account until a resolution has been reached by the disputing parties.
A Shopper may report issues with any order on ShopUpStories.com. While ShopUp Stories cannot guarantee refunds, we will act as the intermediary between Shop Owners and Shoppers. Shop Owners who ignore or do not respond to such reports risk suspension from ShopUp Stories.
A Shopper may also leave a public comment pertaining to the order. In such cases, the comment and the Shopper's username will be displayed on the Shop page. ShopUp Stories reserves the right to remove inappropriate or illegal comments; however, it is the Shopper who is responsible for the content of the comment and for ensuring that it will not be deemed illegal under any applicable laws.
ShopUp Stories may save a shipping address and bank card details for signed-in Shoppers completing a purchase on the Shopper's account. These can be reused when placing further orders.
A Shopper who has either signed up for a ShopUp Stories Account or has purchased from a Shop through the Marketplace hereby agrees to receive marketing emails from ShopUp Stories. A Shopper may choose to opt out of receiving such emails by updating their Account settings on ShopUpStories.com.
ShopUp Stories may, at its own discretion, add or remove features and applications from a ShopUp Stories Account without prior notice. Any material changes will be communicated using the email address you provided upon registration.
For Shop Owners
ShopUp Stories hereby grants you a revocable, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, limited-in-time license to use the Services (the "License"). The License shall be for the term of this Agreement only. Neither the License nor any other provision hereof shall grant any rights within the Service, or any other intellectual property rights except the limited License of use outlined above.
The Shop Owner shall;
* Make sure Products are accurately represented using high-quality images and detailed descriptions that include all necessary specifications (sizing, color, etc.);
* Set accurate expectations for each order with respect to delivery time;
* Help Shoppers stay informed about the status of their orders;
* Notify Shoppers—and process a refund as quickly as possible—if unable to complete an order; and
* Respond to messages and emails from Shoppers in a timely manner. A Shopper should receive a reply within seven days—but the faster the response time, the better.
You may receive personal information pertaining to your Shoppers through operation of the Service. You may not share such information with any third party; send unsolicited, unrelated, or spam communications; engage in an excessive rate of messaging; or misuse or abuse this information in any other way.
You are solely and exclusively responsible for determining what, if any, Taxes apply to the sale of your Products and services, and/or the payments you receive in connection to your use of the Service. It is solely your responsibility to assess, collect, report, or remit the correct tax to the proper tax authority. ShopUp Stories is not obligated to determine whether Taxes apply, or calculate, collect, report, or remit any Taxes to any tax authority arising from any transaction. You acknowledge that we may make certain reports to tax authorities (including, e.g., 1099 forms for U.S Shop Owners) regarding transactions processed via ShopUp Stories's Payments Service.
A Shop Owner may not attempt to divert any user or dissuade any purchase through the Marketplace, including without limitation, in favor of a purchase through the Shop Owner's custom ShopUp Stories shop, or to otherwise attempt to circumvent the Fees (as defined below). Shop Owners may not, without limitation: (i) introduce or display links or URLs that lead users away from the Marketplace; (ii) send or display a message to any user offering a Product or soliciting a sale other than through the Marketplace; or (iii) cancel or return any order placed through the Marketplace with an offer to resell the canceled or returned Product not through the Marketplace. ShopUp Stories reserves the right to suspend or terminate any Shop or Shop OwnerAccount that is in violation of these Terms and/or to charge fees in connection with the sale of any Product ShopUp Stories determines was made in violation of these Terms.
Code of conduct
* You shall not: (i) permit any third party to access the Services, including but not limited to the software, except as permitted herein and to carry out transactions; (ii) create derivate works based on the Services; (iii) copy, frame, or mirror any part of the content of the Services, other than copying or framing for your internal business purposes, (iv) reverse engineer, disassemble, decompile, or otherwise attempt to discover the source code or trade secrets for any of the Services; or (v) access the Services in order to build a competitive product or service.
* You shall not purchase search engine or other pay-per-click keywords (such as Google AdWords), or domain names that use ShopUp Stories or ShopUp Stories's trademarks and/or variations and misspellings thereof.
* You will not access or use the Service if you are our direct competitor, unless you obtain our prior written consent. You may not access the Service for purposes of monitoring its availability, performance or functionality, or for any other benchmarking or competitive purposes.
* You will not take any action that imposes or may impose (in our sole discretion) an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on our technical infrastructure.
* You will not interfere with or attempt to interrupt the proper operation of the Service through the use of any virus, device, information collection or transmission mechanism, software or routine, or access or attempt to gain access to any data, files, or passwords related to the Service through hacking, password or data mining, or any other means.
* You will not cover, block, or in any way interfere with any advertisements, watermarks, colophons and/or safety features (e.g., report abuse button) on the Website or Service.
You may purchase Apps (as defined below) for your Shop via ShopUp Stories.com. In all cases, applications are Shop-specific. This means that when purchasing an application for your Shop, you will be granted a revocable, non-exclusive, non-transferable, limited-in-time license to use that application only in relation to that particular Shop. If you have other Shops connected to your Account, you will be required to purchase any additional applications separately for each one.
We reserve the right to provide our Services to your competitors, and make no promise of exclusivity in any particular market segment. You further acknowledge and agree that ShopUp Stories employees and contractors may also be ShopUp Stories customers and Shop Owners, and that they may compete with you (though they may not use your confidential information in doing so).
Payment of fees
You will pay the Fees applicable to your Service and any other applicable fees, including but not limited to those relating to the processing of transactions under your Account ("Transaction Fees"), and any fees relating to your purchase of any products or services such as ShopUp Stories Plus, domain names, or Third Party Services ("Additional Fees").
For completed purchases through the Marketplace—and any subsequent orders from the same customer, either via your Shop or the Marketplace—ShopUp Stories may take a commission of the transaction value to complete the purchase ("Commission"). Together, the Transaction Fees, the Additional Fees, and the Commission are referred to as the "Fees".
You must keep a valid payment method on file with ShopUp Stories to pay for all incurred and recurring Fees. ShopUp Stories will charge applicable Fees to the credit card account that you authorize ("Authorized Card"), and will continue to charge the Authorized Card (or any replacement card) for applicable Fees until the Services are terminated and any and all outstanding
Fees and other amounts owed to ShopUp Stories have been paid in full. Unless otherwise indicated, all Fees and other charges are in EUR.
Fees connected to your application subscriptions may be paid in advance either annually or monthly. If monthly payment is selected, the subscription Fee will be billed in 30 day intervals (each such date will be referred to as a "Billing Date"). Transaction Fees and Additional Fees will be charged from time to time at ShopUp Stories's discretion. You will be charged on each Billing Date for all outstanding Fees that have not previously been collected. Fees will appear on an invoice, which will be sent to the Account Owner via the email address provided. In addition, an invoice will appear on the Account page of your ShopUp Stories administration console. Users have 14 days to settle any issues relating to the billing of subscription Fees.
Because we've built automatic renewals into our subscriptions, it is important that you read and understand the following:
WHEN YOU SIGN UP FOR A SUBSCRIPTION (MONTHLY, ANNUAL, OR OTHERWISE), YOUR SUBSCRIPTION WILL AUTOMATICALLY RENEW UNTIL YOU CANCEL IT. YOU MAY CANCEL AT ANY TIME BY FOLLOWING THE INSTRUCTIONS MADE AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SERVICE, AND THE CANCELLATION WILL TAKE EFFECT AT THE EXPIRATION OF THE THEN-CURRENT TERM. AGAIN, IF YOU DO NOT CANCEL, YOUR SUBSCRIPTION WILL AUTOMATICALLY RENEW UNDER THE SAME SUBSCRIPTION.
We may modify the Fees at any time by posting a notice of such modification through the Service. Any such modification shall go into effect no less than thirty (30) days after it is posted. We'll notify the User in advance of any change in the recurring amount to be charged for Subscriptions.
All Fees exclude applicable federal, provincial, state, local, or other governmental sales, goods, and services; harmonized or other taxes; and fees or charges now in force or enacted in the future ("Taxes").
You are responsible for all applicable Taxes that arise from—or as a result of—your subscription to or purchase of ShopUp Stories's products and services. These Taxes are based on the rates applicable to the billing address you provide to us. Such amounts are in addition to the Fees for such products and services, and will be billed to your Authorized Card; captured via split payment; or charged from your ShopUp Stories account. If you are exempt from payment of such Taxes, you must provide us with an original certificate that satisfies applicable legal requirements attesting to tax-exempt status. Tax exemption will only apply from and after the date we receive such a certificate.
Upon completion of sign up for the Service, ShopUp Stories will automatically create a Payments Account on your behalf, using your email address and the URL(s) and business name associated with your Account.
You acknowledge that ShopUp Stories's integrated payments service ("Payments Service") will be your default payments gateway, and that it is your sole responsibility as the Account Owner to activate and maintain this account during the term of this Agreement. If you do not wish to keep the payment account active, it is your responsibility to deactivate it. For the avoidance of doubt, the Payments Service is a Third Party Service operated by Slashpay Limited, ("Slashpay"), a limited company incorporated in UK, which is a technical service provider and agent of Wirecard, a bank licensed under the laws of Germany ("Wirecard"). Slashpay's role is to accept and process payments with respect to sales of your products and services through Internet-based transactions. When creating an account on ShopUpStories.com, you automatically sign up for a Slashpay Account ("Payments Account"), to enable payment transactions on your Shop.
You may only use the Payments Service for the sale of items listed in your Shop, and agree to ship products once the payment transaction is complete and funds are available in the Payments Account.
By using the Payments Service in your Shop, you are agreeing to be bound by Slashpay's Connected Account Agreement , as they may be amended by Slashpay from time to time. ShopUp Stories is not a party to any of Slashpay's terms or conditions and is not liable to you in respect thereof. If you do not agree to be bound by Slashpay's terms and conditions, or any changes thereto, you must deactivate your Slashpay Account and your ShopUp Stories Account.
The Payments Service allows you to accept payment by credit and debit cards. ShopUp Stories may add or remove one or more supported payment methods at any time without prior notice to you.
The termination of this Agreement does not relieve you of your financial obligations as set out in this Agreement and Slashpay, Wirecard, the Payment Networks, or our payment processor(s) may elect to continue to hold any funds deemed necessary pending resolution of any other terms or obligations outlined in this Agreement, including but not limited to Chargebacks, Fees, Refunds, or other investigations or proceedings.
In connection with each transfer, ShopUp Stories will charge a transaction fee depending on the transaction value. The transaction fee may be amended from time to time.
These transaction fees are applicable to all transactions that occur through the Payment Service.
When a customer purchases a Product from your Shop, the funds are transferred directly to your Payments Account, minus the commission and fees described above, which are transferred directly to ShopUp Stories.
The Shop Owner agrees to and allow that ShopUp Stories may charge additional applicable Fees to the Payments Account instead of the payment method on file for services like Apps and commission ("Internal Billing").
If the Shop Owner lists and subsequently sells a Product in a currency other than that of the Shop Owner's connected bank account, ShopUp Stories will settle the associated transaction proceeds in the currency of the Shop Owner's bank account. When such a service is required, ShopUp Stories or the receiving bank may apply an additional transaction charge in accordance with the price list.
If a Shopper purchases from a Shop Owner who lists Products in a currency other than the shopper's browsing currency, ShopUp Stories may automatically calculate the listing price in the shopper's browsing currency. If such calculation is required, ShopUp Stories will apply an additional transaction charge of 2.5%.
Holds, delays, and charges
All funds resulting from a completed transaction will be reflected as a balance in a seller's Payment Account. Transfer of payouts to your payout account will be made in accordance with Slashpay's terms and conditions. If ShopUp Stories reasonably determines that ShopUp Stories may incur losses resulting from credit, fraud, criminal behavior, or other legal risks associated with your use of the Service, ShopUp Stories may communicate this to Slashpay. You hereby agree that such communication from ShopUp Stories may lead to your funds being withheld by Slashpay for up to 90 days. The same shall apply in cases of chargebacks, disputes, reports from shoppers to ShopUp Stories, or when a Shop Owner's Account is terminated.
ShopUp Stories may impose transaction limits or refuse service to a Shop Owner or Shopper at any time. ShopUp Stories may cancel a transaction if ShopUp Stories reasonably determines that the Shop Owner is involved in criminal or fraudulent behavior; or that the quality, authenticity, or other features of the Products do not conform to the description thereof; or if there are any other legal risks associated with the transaction. In such cases, ShopUp Stories will communicate this to Slashpay, who may hold or repay the funds to the Shopper. ShopUp Stories will communicate its decision to cancel the transaction to the Shop Owner, who can choose not to deliver the Products until the situation has been resolved.
If there are insufficient funds in the Payments Account to cover the amount of a refund, an Internal Bill, or a chargeback, the Shop Owner agrees to and allows that ShopUp Stories may charge the connected payment method or the connected bank account in order to adjust the balance on the Payments Account.
Processing card transactions
You will not impose any fee or surcharge on a Shopper that seeks to use an eligible payment card. You will provide a receipt to the Shopper at the conclusion of the purchase transaction that includes all information required under applicable law.
Payouts and transaction history
Funds available for payout will be deposited to the connected bank account on a weekly basis, unless otherwise agreed upon. There will be a delay on each transaction before funds are available for deposit. Deposits to a Shop Owner's bank account will be credited within 3-5 business days, but may in some cases take longer, depending on local bank rules, holidays, etc.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, you acknowledge that all credits for funds provided to you are provisional and subject to reversal, including, without limitation, adjustments for inaccuracies and errors (including rejects), and chargebacks, reversals, or claims in accordance with this Agreement and the card network payment rules, whether or not a transaction is charged back by the issuer of the card or the cardholder.
Full refunds must be for the exact amount of the original transaction, including tax, handling fees, and other charges. The refund amount may not exceed the original sale amount except by an amount equal to any reimbursements to the customer for postage costs incurred for product returns. Refunds processed though the Service must be submitted within 60 days of the original transaction but in all cases, within 3 days of approving the cardholder refund.
When a chargeback is issued, you are immediately liable to ShopUp Stories for the full amount of payment of the Chargeback plus any associated Fees, fines, expenses, or penalties (including those assessed by the Payment Networks or our payment processors). You agree that we may recover these amounts from the bank account associated with your Service Account, or setting off any amounts owed to you by us. If we are unable to recover funds related to a chargeback for which you are liable, you will pay us the full amount of the chargeback immediately upon demand. You agree to pay all costs and expenses, including, without limitation, attorneys' fees and other legal expenses incurred by or on behalf of us in connection with the collection of any chargebacks unpaid by you.
You or ShopUp Stories may elect to contest chargebacks connected to your account. ShopUp Stories may provide you with assistance, including notifications and software, to help contest your chargebacks. We do not assume any liability for our role or assistance in contesting chargebacks.
You agree to provide us with the necessary information, in a timely manner and at your expense, to investigate or help resolve any chargeback. You also grant us permission to share records or other information required with the cardholder, the cardholder's financial institution, and your financial institution to help resolve any disputes. You acknowledge that your failure to provide us with complete and accurate information in a timely manner may result in an irreversible chargeback.
If the cardholder's issuing bank or the Payment Network do not resolve a dispute in your favor, we may recover the chargeback amount and any associated fees from you as described in this Agreement.
We reserve the right, upon notice to you, to charge a fee for mediating or investigating chargeback disputes.
At any point, ShopUp Stories, Slashpay, Wirecard, the Payment Networks, or our payment processor(s) may determine that you are incurring excessive chargebacks. Excessive chargebacks may result in additional fees, penalties, or fines. Excessive chargebacks may also result in additional controls and restrictions to your use of the Service, including, without limitation, (i) changes to the terms of your Account, (ii) increases to your applicable Fees, (iii) delays in your payout schedule, or (iv) possible suspension or termination of your Account and the Service. The Networks may also place additional controls or restrictions as part of their own monitoring programs for Shop Owners with excessive chargebacks.

Third Party Services
In addition to these Terms, you also agree to be bound by any additional service-specific terms applicable to services you purchase from, or that are provided by, ShopUp Stories's partners or other third parties.
ShopUp Stories may from time to time recommend, provide you with access to, or enable third party software, applications ("Apps"), products, services, or website links (collectively, "Third Party Services") for your consideration or use. Such Third Party Services are made available only as a convenience. Your purchase, access, or use of any such Third Party Services is solely between you and the applicable Third Party Services provider ("Third Party Provider"). Any use by you of Third Party Services offered through the Services or ShopUp Stories's website is entirely at your own risk and discretion, and it is your responsibility to read the terms and conditions and/or privacy policies applicable to such Third Party Services before using them.
We do not provide any warranties with respect to Third Party Services. You acknowledge that ShopUp Stories has no control over Third Party Services, and shall not be responsible or liable to anyone for such Third Party Services.
If you install or enable a Third Party Service for use with the Services, you grant us permission to allow the applicable Third Party Provider to access your data and to take any other actions as required for the interoperation of the Third Party Service with the Services. Any exchange of data or other interaction between you and the Third Party Provider is solely between you and such Third Party Provider.

Under no circumstances shall ShopUp Stories be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential, punitive, extraordinary, exemplary, or other damages whatsoever that result from any Third Party Services or your contractual relationship with any Third Party Provider. These limitations shall apply even if ShopUp Stories has been advised of the possibility of such damages. The foregoing limitations shall apply to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.
Right to amend
We have the right to change or add to the terms and conditions of this Agreement at any time, and to change, delete, discontinue, or impose conditions on any feature or aspect of the Service or software with notice that we in our sole discretion deem to be reasonable in the circumstances—including such notice on our Website or any other website maintained or owned by us for the purposes of providing services in terms of this Agreement. Any use of the Service after our publication of any such changes shall constitute your acceptance of this Agreement as modified.
This Agreement, including any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you without our prior written consent.
Change of business
You agree to give us at least 30 days prior notification of your intent to change your current Product or services types, your trade name, or the manner in which you accept payment. You agree to provide us with prompt notification if you are the subject of any voluntary or involuntary bankruptcy or insolvency petition or proceeding. You also agree to promptly notify us of any adverse change in your financial condition, any planned or anticipated liquidation or substantial change in the basic nature of your business, any transfer or sale of 25% or more of your total assets, or any change in the control or ownership of your or your parent entity. You will also notify us of any judgment, writ, warrant of attachment, execution, or levy against 25% or more of your total assets no later than three days after you obtain knowledge of it.
You agree that ShopUp Stories can provide notices to you by sending an email to the email address listed in the ShopUp Stories Account profile, or by mailing them to the address listed therein. Such notices shall be considered to be received by you, if sent by email, at the time of dispatch unless we receive notice that the email was not delivered—and if sent by regular mail, on the second business day after such notice was posted.
No party will be liable for delays in processing or other nonperformance caused by such events as fires, telecommunications failures, utility failures, power failures, equipment failures, labor strife, riots, war, terrorist attack, nonperformance of our vendors or suppliers, acts of God, or other causes over which the respective party has no reasonable control, except that nothing in this section will affect or excuse your liabilities and obligations for, including without limitation, reversals, chargebacks, claims, fines, Fees, refunds, or unfulfilled Products and services.
Entire Agreement; Remedies
This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and ShopUp Stories with respect to the provision of the Service. Except as expressly provided in the Agreement, these Terms describe the entire liability of ShopUp Stories and our vendors and suppliers, and sets forth your exclusive remedies with respect to the Service, and your access and use of the Service. If any provision of this Agreement (or portion thereof) is held to be invalid or unenforceable under applicable law, then it shall be changed and interpreted to accomplish the objectives of such provision to the greatest extent possible under applicable law, and the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect.
In addition to any provision that is reasonably necessary to accomplish or enforce the purpose of this Agreement, the following sections of this Agreement survive and remain in effect in accordance with their terms upon the termination of this Agreement: Section 14 (Disputes and choice of law).
Headings and formatting are included for convenience only, and shall not be considered in interpreting this Agreement. The Agreement does not limit any rights that we may have under trade secret, copyright, patent, or other laws. Our failure to assert any right or provision under this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. No waiver of any term of this Agreement shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term.
Disputes and choice of law
You agree that any disputes arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the use of the Service shall be resolved in accordance with this section.
This Agreement is governed by the laws of Czech Republic (without regard to its choice of law provisions). The exclusive venue for any actions or claims arising under or related to this Agreement shall, to the extent possible by applicable law, be the District Court of Prague.
BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER (FOR USERS BASED IN THE UNITED STATES)
In the event of a Dispute, either party may elect to finally and exclusively resolve the dispute by binding arbitration. Any election to arbitrate, at any time, will be final and binding on the other party. IF EITHER PARTY CHOOSES ARBITRATION, NEITHER PARTY WILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE THE DISPUTE IN COURT OR TO HAVE A JURY TRIAL. DISCOVERY AND APPEAL RIGHTS MAY ALSO BE LIMITED IN ARBITRATION. All Disputes will be resolved before a neutral arbitrator, whose decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the FAA. Any court in Stockholm, Czech Republic may enforce the arbitrator's award. The arbitration shall be administered by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services ("JAMS") pursuant to JAMS' Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures, if applicable, or otherwise pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures and in accordance with the Expedited Procedures in those Rules (the "JAMS Rules"). Such disputes will be resolved by the arbitrator as determined under the JAMS Rules. The arbitration may be conducted in person, through the submission of documents, by phone or online. If conducted in person, the arbitration will take place in Prague, Czech Republic. The parties may litigate in court to compel arbitration, to stay proceeding pending arbitration, or to confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. In addition, we may litigate in court to seek injunctive relief.
You agree that any arbitration or proceeding will be limited to the Dispute between us and you individually. To the full extent permitted by law, (i) no arbitration or proceeding shall be joined with any other; (ii) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated or resolved on a class action-basis or to utilize class action procedures; and (iii) there is no right or authority for any Dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public or any other persons. YOU AGREE THAT YOU MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST US ONLY IN YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
