ShweetSpot’s products and services are owned and operated by
We provide a platform (including Products) where we, our affiliates and other business owners or advertising or marketing agents or agencies or promoters (collectively, “Promoters”) can list sales, sale items, promotions, offers for coupons, vouchers, promotions, deals, discounts, goods, getaways and other products (collectively, “Items”).
As a platform provider, we help facilitate the awareness for Items on our platform. We provide tools for Promoters to represent their Items. We may also be a Promoter. This means that in addition to this Agreement, you may have other contractual relationships with different legal entities when you interact with the Products and Promoters Items.
Whichever Items you view, use, are referred from or purchase via our Products will be subject to the terms and conditions of that Promoter. This means that your contract of sale may be with another company or entity. The Promoter is responsible for the Items information, purchase links, sale and for dealing with any claims or any other issue arising out of or in connection with the contract between you and the Promoter. Please also note that in respect of purchases of a voucher or claiming of a coupon, in addition to the contract of sale you will have with the Promoter of the coupon or voucher, there will also be a contract between you and the business that actually provides the Items when you redeem your coupon or voucher with that business (the “Merchant”). In respect of any coupon or vouchers, neither we nor any Promoter assumes responsibility for any contracts regarding the redemption of your coupon or voucher with a Merchant.
