Dropd Service

The service offers an online platform that allows content producers, merchants and brands to advertise a range of products ("Goods") as seen on various media platforms. Dropd creates a link between between end-users (“Users") that will download the app or use the service, media content platforms and Merchants, creating a "market place" based on content that users consuming on any digital device. Dropd will advertise or promote the relevant Goods based on the “product placement” arrangement between the show producer and the Merchant. These terms govern the use of the service to perform these transactions.

The service provides links to the websites or the mobile downloadable application (“Apps”) of the Merchants and may include advertising relating to Merchants, other third parties, and their products.

Dropd does not charge any fees for browsing through any part of the service, however when buying items listed for sale through the website link on the third party service there will be a purchase price and may be a delivery fee applicable, which will be fully paid by the customer or the User.

Please note that Dropd doesn't hold any stock and no sale is directly conducted on the service, therefore, the Merchants and products listed on the service do not necessarily represent all suppliers of the relevant products, or all products available, and Dropd does not guarantee the accuracy of prices, availability of products, or any other information specified on the service, nor does it guarantee that the information displayed on the service is error-free. It is specifically recorded that product pricing and characteristics are supplied to Dropd by the Merchants who have agreed to be listed on the service. Dropd also makes no guarantees as to the content or accuracy of any external websites or applications to which you may be able to link from the service.

Dropd shall take all reasonable efforts to accurately reflect the description and purchase price of Goods on the service. However, should there be any errors of whatsoever nature on the service (which are not due to our gross negligence), we shall not be liable for any loss, claim or expense relating to a transaction based on any error, save – in the case of any incorrect purchase price – to the extent of refunding you for any amount already paid, or otherwise as set out in the applicable Returns Policy.

In additional to the functionality of the service stated above, user are able to follow shows, by subscribing within the service, comment on posts, like posts and submit private messages to the show producers through a hashtag on a post. The submission of messages can be used for running competition campaigns but please note that additional terms may apply to that competition and a link to these terms will be provided by the show producer, the brand or the merchant.


Dropd is not responsible for Merchants

Dropd’s role is limited to providing the platform through which, once registered with a valid account, users can browse, view and, be able to follow links to purchase the products offered by different Merchants.

A Merchant is fully responsible for all product information, refund and returns policy, shipping methods and all available payment methods. Dropd is not responsible for the services offered by the merchant.

Dropd is not an agent of any Merchant, does not vouch for, or make any warranties in relation to, any Merchant or its products. Neither Dropd nor any of its agents or representatives shall be liable for any damage, loss or liability of whatsoever nature arising in relation to any Merchant. Without detracting from the generality of the aforegoing, Dropd will not be liable in any way whatsoever in relation to any purchases you may make from any Merchant/s directly. In purchasing products from any Merchant directly, you are contracting with the relevant Merchant to purchase such Merchant's product/s and the Merchant is thus solely responsible for the fulfillment of all aspects of your purchase from it. As a user, you acknowledge that you are solely responsible for evaluating the price, quality and legitimacy of any products listed on the Website and Dropd does not guarantee that any Merchant or other party involved in transactions arising from listings or advertisements placed on the service will act in good faith.

Dropd provides a platform to facilitate transactions between Merchants and Dropd Users. Dropd is neither the buyer nor the seller of these Goods. The Sale formed on acceptance of your order for Goods that are for sale by a Merchant is therefore solely between you, the user, and such Merchant. Dropd is not a party to that sale. The Merchant is solely responsible for fulfillment of the Goods. The Merchant is also responsible to provide an invoice to you if required.

Please note that not all Merchants are registered VAT (Value-Added Tax) vendors. Only Merchant’s who are registered VAT vendors may charge VAT on Goods sold and issue a tax invoice in respect thereof. If a Merchant is not a registered VAT Vendor, it may not charge VAT on Goods sold and will not be in a position to issue a tax invoice in respect thereof.

As Dropd strives to ensure that the information on the service relating to any Merchant or its products is accurate, up-to-date, and lawful, should you suspect that a Merchant is selling illegal products, conducting fraudulent activity, using bait marketing or otherwise misleading Users in any way, please notify Dropd thereof by using this email address, info@dropd.live, so that Dropd can take such measures as it deems appropriate.

If any provision of these Terms of Use is held to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable during arbitration or by a court of competent jurisdiction, then that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms of Use and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. Dropd's failure to insist upon or enforce strict performance of any provision of these Terms will not be construed as a waiver of any provision or right. No waiver of any of these Terms will be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or any other term or condition. Dropd reserves the right to change this dispute resolution provision, but any such changes will not apply to disputes arising before the effective date of the amendment. This dispute resolution provision will survive the termination of any or all of your transactions with Dropd.

Dropd may assign these Terms of Use or any rights hereunder without your consent.

Neither the course of conduct between the parties nor trade practice will act to modify the Terms of Use. These Terms of Use do not confer any third-party beneficiary rights.


Territorial Restrictions
