Description of the Service
The GIFTHY.io Shopify App is a software that allows a user (the “Gift Sender”) to buy a gift for another person (the “Gift Recipient”) from any Shopify Store in which a Merchant has enabled the Service. These terms apply to you as a Gift Sender or as a Gift Recipient.
Gift Senders may not use the Service to purchase any Gift with an aggregate value of greater than €1,000 (including the shipment costs) on any single day. We reserve the right to change this limitation at any time and without notice. We reserve the right to suspend operation of the Service for any reason and without prior notice, provided that such suspension will not interfere in settlement of Payments already accepted from you by any Merchant.
The Gift Sender will be required to enter personal contact information, such as email address, and GIFTHY is not responsible for any incorrect contact information provided by the Gift Sender. The Gift Sender may be required to enter contact information about the Gift Recipient. Gift Sender states that they have consent of the Gift Recipient to provide GIFHTY with all Gift Recipient information provided. Purchasing the Gift Offered does not guarantee the price or availability of any Product, and the Product ultimately ordered from any Merchant will be ordered only when the Gift is redeemed by the Gift Recipient. The price of the Gift Offered is based on the price of the Product selected by the Gift Sender at the time it is purchased, in addition to shipping and taxes estimate when applicable.
After the Gift Sender purchases the Gift Offered, the Service will notify the Gift Sender, or Gift Recipient when applicable, thereof using the contact information provided by the Gift Sender.
All Products are priced at the time of Gift redemption according Merchant’s prices then in-effect and are subject to availability. Sales taxes and shipping costs are defined by the Merchants.
The Gift Offered may be cancelled for the following reasons: (i) by the Gift Sender at any point before the Gift is redeemed or exchanged by the Gift Recipient; or (ii) by GIFTHY as permitted and/or required by law, this Agreement, Merchant’s Terms or in order to prevent fraud or money laundering or other illegal uses of the Service or uses that pose excessive legal, financial or security risk to GIFTHY or its suppliers;.
Upon cancellation of the Gift Offered, the Service will notify the Gift Sender and the Gift Recipient of the cancellation and it will be the sole Merchant’s responsibility to refund the Gift Sender’s original Payment method for the appropriate amount as the case may be.
