4. Repeat Infringer Policy; Copyright Complaints
In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA") and other applicable law, Curio Spice has adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances and in Curio Spice’s sole discretion, account holders who are deemed to be repeat infringers. Curio Spice may also, in its sole discretion, limit access to the Sites and/or terminate the accounts of any users who infringe any intellectual property rights of others, whether or not there is any repeat infringement.
If you believe that anything on the Sites infringes upon any copyright which you own or control, you may file a notification of such infringement with our designated agent as set forth below.

You should review the applicable terms and policies, including privacy and data gathering practices, of any site to which you navigate from the Sites.
7. User Content and Interactive Features or Areas
The Sites may include discussion forums, blogs, profiles, product reviews or other interactive features or areas (collectively, "Interactive Areas"), in which you or other users create, post, transmit or store any content, such as text, music, sound, photos, video, graphics or code on the Sites ("User Content"). User Content is publicly-viewable and includes your profile information and any content you post pursuant to your profile, but it does not include your curiospice.com account information (also known as "Your Curio Spice Online Account" or "Your Account") or information you submit in order to make a purchase. You agree that you are solely responsible for your User Content and for your use of such Interactive Areas, and that you use the Interactive Areas at your own risk.
By using any Interactive Areas, you agree not to post, upload to, transmit, distribute, store, create or otherwise publish or send through the Sites any of the following:
- User Content that is unlawful, libelous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, indecent, lewd, suggestive, harassing, threatening, abusive, inflammatory, fraudulent or otherwise objectionable;
- User Content that would constitute, encourage or provide instructions for a criminal offense, violate the rights of any party or that would otherwise create liability or violate any local, state, national or international law;
- User Content that displays, describes or encourages usage of any product we sell in a manner that could be offensive, inappropriate or harmful to Curio Spice or to any user or consumer or that is contrary to any manufacturer instructions or warnings relating to the product (safety concerns can be reported to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 617-945-1888);
- User Content that may impinge upon or violate the publicity, privacy or data protection rights of others, including pictures or information about another individual where you have not obtained such individual's consent;
- User Content that makes false or misleading statements, claims or depictions about a person, company, product or service;
- User Content that does not clearly and prominently disclose any material connections you may have to Curio Spice or third party brands or sellers (for example, if you receive free products or Stores or are a paid blogger or employee);
- User Content that may infringe any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other intellectual or proprietary right of any party;
- User Content that impersonates any person or entity or otherwise misrepresents your affiliation with a person or entity;
- Viruses, malware of any kind, corrupted data or other harmful, disruptive or destructive files or code; and
- User Content that, in the sole discretion and judgment of Curio Spice, restricts or inhibits any other person from using or enjoying the Sites or which may expose Curio Spice or its users to any harm or liability of any type.
Curio Spice takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any User Content posted, stored or uploaded by you or any third party or for any loss or damage thereto, nor is Curio Spice liable for any mistakes, defamation, slander, libel, omissions, falsehoods, obscenity, pornography or profanity you may encounter. At the same time, Curio Spice encourages its users to report User Content that violates these Terms (either by using a flagging or reporting mechanism provided within the Sites or, for content that infringes copyright or trademark rights, by following the instructions in Sections 4 and 5 of these Terms). Enforcement of the Terms, however, is solely in our discretion and the absence of enforcement of these Terms in some instances does not constitute a waiver of our right to enforce the Terms in other instances. In addition, these Terms do not create any private right of action on the part of any third party or any reasonable expectation or promise that the Sites will not contain any content that is prohibited by such Terms. Although Curio Spice has no obligation to screen, edit or monitor any of the User Content posted on the Sites, Curio Spice reserves the right, and has absolute discretion, to remove, screen or edit any User Content posted or stored on the Sites at any time and for any reason without notice, and you are solely responsible for creating backup copies and replacing any User Content you post or store on the Sites at your sole cost and expense.
8. Rights in User Content and Feedback
Except as otherwise provided herein, on the Sites or in a separate agreement (such as the rules of a Curio Spice contest), Curio Spice claims no ownership or control over any User Content. However, by submitting or posting User Content on the Sites, you grant Curio Spice and its affiliates a nonexclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable and fully sublicensable right to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, perform and display such User Content on the Sites and on third-party sites. We will contact you directly to obtain permission before we use your User Content for our own commercial purposes, unless you expressly grant these rights to Curio Spice at the time you upload your content. If you choose to remove your User Content, the license granted above will automatically expire; however, you acknowledge that there may be exceptions (for example, you cannot delete a vote you submitted that has already been counted or your purchase history). In addition, we may retain archived copies of your User Content and cached copies of your User Content may still be available for some period of time.
By posting User Content to the Sites, you represent and warrant that (a) such User Content is non-confidential; (b) you own and control all of the rights, title and interest in and to the User Content or you otherwise have all necessary rights to post and use such User Content to the Sites and to grant the rights to Curio Spice that you grant in these Terms; (c) the User Content is accurate and not misleading or harmful in any manner; and (d) the User Content, and your use and posting thereof in connection with the Sites, do not and will not violate these Terms, our Site Rules, any other applicable Curio Spice terms, guidelines or policies or any applicable law, rule or regulation.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, you acknowledge and agree that any questions, comments, suggestions, reviews, ideas, plans, notes, drawings, original or creative materials or other information or materials regarding the Sites, Curio Spice or Curio Spice’s products or services that are provided by you, whether by email, posting to the Sites or otherwise ("Feedback"), are non-confidential and shall become the sole property of Curio Spice. Curio Spice shall own exclusive rights, including all intellectual property rights, and shall be entitled to the unrestricted use and dissemination of these materials for any purpose, commercial or otherwise, without acknowledgment or compensation to you. To avoid any potential disputes, do not send us Feedback if you expect to be compensated or want to retain ownership or claim rights to such Feedback. While your idea might have value, Curio Spice may have already considered the same or a similar idea.

These Terms and your use of the Sites will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Massachusetts, applicable to agreements made and to be entirely performed within the State of Massachusetts, without resort to its conflict of law provisions. You agree that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to these Terms shall be filed only in the state and federal courts located in Middlesex County, Massachusetts, and you hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consent and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts over any suit, action or proceeding arising out of these Terms and waive any objection which you may have to the venue of any suit, action or proceeding in any of such courts and any claim that any such suit, action or proceeding has been brought in an inconvenient forum.

Part Two – Terms for Users Making Purchases
PART TWO APPLIES IN ADDITION TO PART ONE IF YOU PURCHASE A PRODUCT OR SERVICE THROUGH THE SITES.
All orders are subject to the Terms set forth herein. Submission of an order shall constitute, but is not the sole form of, your acceptance of such Terms.
1. Pricing and Availability
All prices are shown in U.S. dollars; taxes, shipping and handling charges are additional. All items are subject to availability and we reserve the right to impose quantity limits on any order, to reject all or part of an order and to discontinue products or services without notice, even if you have already placed your order. All prices are subject to change without notice and you agree that taxes may be adjusted from the amount shown on the billing screens. Several factors may cause this, such as variances between processor programs and changes in tax rates.
We attempt to be as accurate as possible and eliminate errors on the Sites; however, we do not warrant that any product, service, description, photograph, pricing or other information is accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free. In the event of an error, whether on the Sites, in an order confirmation, in processing an order, delivering a product or service or otherwise, we reserve the right to correct such error and revise your order accordingly if necessary (including charging the correct price) or to cancel the order and refund any amount charged. Your sole remedy in the event of such error is to cancel your order and obtain a refund.
3. Out-of-Stock Items
If the attribute (Organic, Natural, Color, Size, etc.) that you want is not listed in the drop-down box on the Product Information page, it is not then available for ordering. Please check back later or indicate that you would like us to notify you if the product becomes available. Note that some items may be unavailable even if the Sites indicate that they are in-stock, and adding an item to your cart does not guarantee the availability of that item. We will charge your payment card upon completion of the checkout process and ship your item as soon as possible. If the item is no longer available, we will cancel and refund the item from your order and notify you, usually via email.
4. Agreement to Conduct Transactions Electronically; Recording; Copies
You agree that all of your transactions with or through the Sites may, at our option, be conducted electronically from start to finish, and that any oral conversations may be recorded. If we decide to proceed non-electronically, those transactions will still be governed by the remainder of these Terms unless you enter into different terms provided by us. You are responsible to print or make an electronic copy of these Terms and any other contract or disclosure that we are required to provide to you.
5. Shipping & Handling; No Export by You
When we ship to you or per your directions, you agree to pay the shipping and any handling charges shown on the Sites when your order is placed. We reserve the right to increase, decrease and add or eliminate charges from time to time and without prior notice, so you agree to check all charges before placing an order or signing up for a service. Generally, shipping is by cheapest available method, with many upgrade options. Any shipping or handling charges may or may not reflect actual costs. All orders are shipment contracts, not destination contracts. Any shipping times shown on the Sites are estimates only – actual delivery dates may vary. You agree that you will not obtain or direct shipment of product for export.
6. Payment; Credit for Refunds
Only valid credit cards or other payment method acceptable to us may be used and all refunds will be credited to the same card or, in our sole discretion, other method. By submitting your order, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to use the designated card or method and authorize us to charge your order (including taxes, shipping, handling and any other amounts described on the Sites) to that card or other method. If the card (or other method) cannot be verified, is invalid, or is not otherwise acceptable, your order may be suspended or cancelled automatically. Regarding "Your Account," you agree to keep all payment cards or other payment method information current and that we may submit charges for processing even if the card (or other method) has expired or changed by the time we submit it. You must resolve any problem we encounter with your method of payment in order to proceed with your order.
7. Returns and Exchanges
Whether you made your purchase through the Sites or through phone/mail order, you may return or exchange any unopened, unused items not including consumable goods or gift cards by mail within 30 days of receiving the item, subject to any contrary terms imposed on your purchase and provided that you follow the instructions on the Sites. Exchanges and returns on undamaged, otherwise satisfactory items will be at the sole expense of the customer. Food items such as spices and blends, and gift cards both physical and digital are final sale unless unsafe or defective. Gift cards with less than $5 remaining balance can be redeemed for cash, per state law in Massachusetts. Returns may make you ineligible for promotions, and we reserve the right to require identification, proof of purchase, or additional verifiable information to help Curio Spice locate the purchase in our records. If a gift certificate or card, voucher, coupon or payment mechanism other than a credit or debit card or Apple Pay was used to pay the original price, or if the purchase was part of a special offer that is not in effect when the return is made, we may in our sole discretion give you a store credit. After we have received your valid return, we will provide one of the following within a reasonable time: an exchange of merchandise for the item returned, a non-transferable merchandise credit, a non-transferable gift certificate or gift card, a credit to the payment card used to pay for the product, a check, or another remedy that we determine in good faith is appropriate in the circumstances, less the cost of shipping. In the case of an exchange for an undamaged or otherwise satisfactory item, the customer agrees to cover the cost of shipping both the return to Curio Spice, and the charges for shipping the replacement item. If you do not comply with any of the above conditions, we reserve the right to refuse the return or exchange, or to impose different or additional conditions, including (without limitation) basing our response on the current sales price. If you believe a product sold by Curio Spice has a condition or defect that might make it unsafe, please report this safety concern immediately by calling 617-945-1888 or emailing our designated agent as set forth in Part 1 Section 4.
8. Issues With Orders
Customers have 30 days from the date an order is received, as indicated by tracking provided by postal carriers (including, but not limited to, FedEx, USPS, and UPS), to report any missing or damaged items. Within 30 days, Curio Spice will, at Curio Spice’s sole discretion, upon receipt of notification of damaged or missing items, provide store credit, refund to original payment method, or a replacement item of the approximate same nature and value as the missing or damaged item at Curio Spice’s sole expense. Curio Spice reserves the right to request proof of damaged products, usually in the form of photographs, or may request to have the item(s) sent back to Curio Spice at Curio Spice’s expense. Outside of 30 days from the date an order is received, Curio Spice will offer compensation for lost or damaged items at its sole discretion.
9. Abandoned Pickup Orders
If Storefront Pickup is selected at checkout, customers have six days from notification of order fulfillment (via email) to retrieve their order from 2265 Massachusetts Avenue Cambridge MA 02140 (“The Shop”) for pickup. If, after six days, a customer’s order has not been retrieved, Curio Spice reserves the right to cancel and refund the order, less a $5 restocking fee or the total of the order, whichever is less.
10. Limited Warranty
CURIO SPICE WARRANTS THAT CURIO SPICE BRANDED PRODUCTS WILL BE FREE FROM DEFECTS IN MATERIALS AND WORKMANSHIP AT THE TIME OF SALE. THIS WARRANTY DOES NOT APPLY TO DAMAGE OR MALFUNCTIONS CAUSED BY NORMAL WEAR AND TEAR, ACCIDENT, ABUSE, NEGLECT, IMPROPER STORAGE, HANDLING OR USE, MISUSE, VANDALISM, ACTS OF GOD, OR OTHER CAUSES EXTERNAL TO THE PRODUCTS.
CURIO SPICE MAKES NO OTHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES AND THIS LIMITED WARRANTY SUPERCEDES ANY PRIOR REPRESENTATIONS AND UNDERSTANDINGS REGARDING THE PRODUCTS, INCLUDING ANY WARRANTY ARISING FROM COURSE OF DEALING, COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, OR USAGE OF TRADE.
CURIO SPICE DOES NOT MANUFACTURE THE NON-CURIO SPICE BRANDED PRODUCTS IT SELLS AND MAKES NO EXPRESS REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES THEREON OR WITH RESPECT THERETO AND SELLS THE GOODS AS-IS, WHERE-IS. CURIO SPICE MAKES NO IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR USE OR CONDITION AND HEREBY DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL SUCH IMPLIED WARRANTIES THAT MAY ARISE BY OPERATION OF LAW OR OTHERWISE. Manufacturers of non-Curio Spice branded products may provide other warranties, and you agree that your remedy for any defects in such products will be based solely on the warranty(s), if any, provided by those manufacturers, which warranty(s) shall be between you and the manufacturer and to which Curio Spice is not a party.
11. Exclusivity of Remedy; Limitation of Liability
YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY, AND CURIO SPICE’S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE LIABILITY FOR ANY BREACH OF WARRANTY SHALL BE YOUR RIGHT TO RETURN THE PRODUCT OR RECEIVE A REFUND FOR THE SERVICE UNDER CURIO SPICE’S RETURNS AND EXCHANGES POLICY, DESCRIBED IN SECTIONS 7 AND 8 OF THESE TERMS. IN NO EVENT SHALL CURIO SPICE BE LIABLE FOR SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION LOST PROFITS OR LOSS OF BUSINESS OR ANY LOSS OCCASIONED BY DELAY IN DELIVERY, EVEN IF IT HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, NOR SHALL THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF CURIO SPICE, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, WARRANTY, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE, WHETHER ACTIVE, PASSIVE OR IMPUTED), PRODUCT LIABILITY, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHER THEORY, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS OR THE PURCHASE OR USE OF ANY PRODUCTS OR SERVICES PURCHASED THROUGH THE SITES EXCEED THE PURCHASE PRICE OF THE PRODUCT OR SERVICE. The foregoing is intended as a complete allocation of the risks between Curio Spice and you, and you hereby agree that this limitation upon remedies will not have failed of its essential purpose. Your remedies set out herein are exclusive. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
