Refund Terms. Once the buyer has successfully made a purchase, the seller is responsible to ship the product to arrive at buyer's location.

After such period, all purchases are automatically accepted and will remain final. After the cooling off period, money from the purchase will be transferred to the seller’s account.
However, in the event a dispute arises during the three (3) day period, MonsteraX may intervene as a last resort. It is our goal is to resolve any disputes as quickly as possible while being fair to both parties. If you are concerned about the refund policy, please ask the seller before you make your purchase or read their stated terms of sale.

Our refund policy varies from seller to seller. We recommend our sellers put their return policy on their listings, profile pages, setup through their subscriber dashboard. In general, we honor a full refund or a partial refund, based on all evidence we collect from each party. In almost all cases, however, we expect that buyers and sellers will be able to settle the dispute among themselves.
In the case of a refund, the buyer will receive the full price of each order back, less our service fees and any merchant fees. In such case, the seller would not receive any amount at all. Once the refund is approved, MonsteraX will transfer the refund within no less than fifteen (15) days from the date our systems approve the refund or when the merchant approves the refund, whichever occurs later.
Buyer should include a description, video and images of the items in question, including the reason Buyer is seeking a refund, Buyer’s name, address, account information, payment details and product(s) along with images of the shipping package, the product and any defects or shipping damages. Buyer should keep in mind that Buyer will generally have to pay for the shipping and/or insurance on the shipment back to seller.

If within three (3) days of receipt a transaction is not resolved, a buyer may trigger a refund claim through the platform which will escalate the dispute to MonsteraX.

MonsteraX is not liable for any money or value lost and will decide any dispute which is escalated to MonsteraX reasonably, but in its sole discretion.

These Terms provide you with specific legal rights, and you may have other rights that may vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.

You agree and acknowledge to indemnify, hold harmless, and defend MonsteraX, its affiliates, clients, agents, officers, licensors, distributors and/or any authorized representatives, and the officers, directors and employees of each (jointly, the**“MonsteraX’s Indemnitees”**) from and against any and all third party liabilities, claims, causes of action, suits, losses, damages, fines, judgments, settlements and expenses (including any and all reasonable outside attorneys’ fees and court costs) which may be suffered, made or incurred by any of such MonsteraX’s Indemnitees arising out of or relating to: (i) any breach of any warranties, representations and/or covenants made by you hereunder (to the extent not arising substantially from any breach hereof by MonsteraX); and/or (ii) any third party claim arising out of or in relation to the Sites, the Products or the Services or use thereof in combination with your business platform, including without limitation, any claim that the Sites, the Products or the Services violate, infringe, or misappropriate any proprietary or intellectual property right of any third party, including without limitation, any privacy right of any person.

The Terms may be amended only by mutual agreement expressed in writing and signed by both parties, and any attempted amendment in violation of this section shall be void.
Equitable remedies. You hereby acknowledge and agree that if these Terms are not specifically enforced, MonsteraX will be irreparably damaged, and therefore you agree that MonsteraX shall be entitled, without bond, other security or proof of damages, to appropriate equitable remedies with respect to your breach of any of these Terms, in addition to any other available remedies.

No Embargo.

Severability. If any provision of these Terms is held unenforceable, then such provision will be modified to reflect the parties’ intention. All remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect. The failure of either party to exercise in any respect any right provided for herein will not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder.
No Relationship. You and MonsteraX are independent contractors, and no agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer, or franchiser-franchisee relationship is intended or created by these Terms.
No Waiver. Failure by MonsteraX to enforce any rights hereunder shall not be construed as a waiver of any rights with respect to the subject matter hereof.
Use of Websites and Content outside of the United States. MonsteraX makes no claims regarding access or use of the Sites or the MonsteraX Content outside of the United States.

Applicable Law, Dispute Resolution.
Governing Law. These Terms and all matters regarding your use of the Sites shall be governed by, construed in accordance with, and enforced under the laws of the State of New York applicable to contracts made and executed and wholly performed in the State of New York, without regard to its choice of law principles. Neither the Uniform Computer Information Transaction Act nor the United Nations Convention on Contracts for International Sale of Goods apply and their applicability is expressly excluded. Printed copies of any and all agreements and/or notices in electronic form shall be admissible in any legal, investigative or regulatory proceedings.
Applicability of Arbitration Agreement. All claims and disputes (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as set forth below) in connection with the Terms or the use of any product or service provided by MonsteraX that cannot be resolved informally shall be resolved by binding arbitration on an individual basis under the terms of these Terms. Unless otherwise agreed to, all arbitration proceedings shall be held in English. This arbitration applies to you and MonsteraX, and to any subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of services or goods provided under these Terms.
Notice Requirement and Informal Dispute Resolution. Before either party may seek arbitration, the party must first send to the other party a written Notice of Dispute (a “Notice”) describing the nature and basis of the claim or dispute, and the requested relief. A Notice to MonsteraX should be sent to our address as indicated in our contact section. After the Notice is received, you and MonsteraX may attempt to resolve the claim or dispute informally. If you and MonsteraX do not resolve the claim or dispute within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received, either party may begin an arbitration proceeding. The amount of any settlement offer made by any party may not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator has determined the amount of the award, if any, to which either party is entitled. The amount of the award shall also be limited by the Limitation of Liability section of these Terms, to the extent applicable.
Arbitration Rules. Arbitration shall be initiated through the American Arbitration Association (AAA) Rules, an established alternative dispute resolution provider (“ADR Provider”) that offers arbitration as set forth in this section. If the AAA is not available to arbitrate, the parties shall agree to select an alternative ADR Provider. The rules of the ADR Provider shall govern all aspects of the arbitration, including but not limited to the method of initiating and/or demanding arbitration, except to the extent such rules are in conflict with the Terms.
The arbitration shall be conducted by a single, neutral arbitrator. Any claims or disputes where the total amount of the award sought is less than Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000.00) may be resolved through binding non-appearance-based arbitration, at the option of the party seeking relief. For claims or disputes where the total amount of the award sought is Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000.00) or more, the right to a hearing will be determined by the ADR Provider Rules.
Any hearing will be held in a location within 100 miles of MonsteraX’s primary business premises, unless the parties agree otherwise. If you reside outside of State of North Carolina, the arbitrator shall give the parties reasonable notice of the date, time and place of any oral hearings, as detailed below. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Each party shall bear its own costs (including attorney’s fees) and disbursements arising out of the arbitration and shall pay an equal share of the fees and costs of the ADR Provider.
Additional Rules for Non-Appearance Based Arbitration. If non-appearance-based arbitration is elected, the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, reputable video conference-based tools and/or based solely on written submissions; the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration. The arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise agreed by the parties.
Time Limits. If you or MonsteraX elect to pursue arbitration, the arbitration action must be initiated and/or demanded within the statute of limitations (i.e., the legal deadline for filing a claim) and within any deadline imposed under the ADR Provider Rules for the pertinent claim.
Authority of Arbitrator. If arbitration is initiated, the arbitrator will decide the rights and liabilities, if any, of you and MonsteraX, and the dispute will not be consolidated with any other matters or joined with any other cases or parties. The arbitrator shall have the authority to grant motions dispositive of all or part of any claim. The arbitrator shall have the authority to award monetary damages, and to grant any non-monetary remedy or relief available to an individual under applicable law, the ADR Provider Rules, and the Terms.
The arbitrator shall issue a written award and statement of decision describing the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based, including the calculation of any damages awarded. The arbitrator has the same authority to award relief on an individual basis that a judge in a court of law would have. The award of the arbitrator is final and binding upon you and MonsteraX.
Emergency Equitable Relief. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may seek emergency equitable relief before a state or federal court in order to maintain the status quo pending arbitration.
Waiver of Class Actions, Non-Individualized Relief. You acknowledge and accept that claims brought against MonsteraX shall be only on an individual basis and not as a plaintiff or class member in any possible future class or representative action or similar proceeding. Unless otherwise agreed by you and MonsteraX, you may not adjoin or consolidate any claim with more than one person; and you may not otherwise supervise or take over any form of a class, representative or consolidated proceeding.
Forum. For the application of this arbitration agreement, and of other matters appertaining these Terms, the parties hereto agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located in the State of North Carolina, United States of America.
If you bring a dispute in a manner other than in accordance with this section, you agree that we may move to have it dismissed, and that you will be responsible for our reasonable attorney’s fees, court costs, and disbursements in doing so.
Electronic Communications. By creating an account, you hereby grant MonsteraX the right to communicate with you regarding the Sites and/or the Services by e-mail, text messages, calls (including generated by automatic dialing systems and prerecorded messages) and push notifications, as applicable, using the contact information that you provided to us in your account (you understand that mobile carrier and data rates may apply to such communications, for which you will be solely responsible). Your consent to receive electronic communications extends to any third-party providers, as applicable, and also encompasses any communications, which we may send to you periodically regarding promotional offers or legal notices or other information about your account. You also agree to the use of an electronic record to document your consent to this Agreement. If you wish to revoke your consent to the use of the electronic record by MonsteraX, you must email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with "Revoke Electronic Consent" in the subject line. You may also opt-out of receiving text messages from us by replying "STOP" from the mobile device receiving the messages.
Survival of Terms. All provisions of these Terms that are reasonably intended to survive the termination of your account and/or these Terms because they impose continuing rights and/or obligations post-termination shall so survive.
Internet Delays. The Services may be subject to delays, and other technical problems inherent in the use of the Internet and electronic communications, none of which are within MonsteraX’s reasonable control and MonsteraX is therefore not responsible for any delays, failures or damage resulting from any such technical issues.
