Terms of Use

Welcome to Hazrati Marketplace – Your Ultimate Selling and Buying Destination.
Make yourself comfortable, have a good time, and follow the “House” rules below. Cheers!

Accepting Our Terms

This User Privacy Notice, User Agreement, or what we officially call our “Terms of Use” is a legally binding contract between Hazrati and YOU. It sets out all your responsibilities and rights of using the services offered by Hazrati (we will refer to our mobile app, website, and other services as “Our Services”), so read each of the house rules carefully.

The moment you start using any of the services provided by Hazrati (even if it’s just browsing our website, using our mobile app, and going through numerous listings), you agree to comply with all of these Terms. If you don’t agree with our Terms, you have the choice of not using our Services. Are you with us? Great, let’s get started!

Your Account with Hazrati

We understand the personal information you provide to us is important to you. And this is why it is also important to us. Typically, you will be required to create an account and join our community to start using some of our Services. So, here are a few rules about creating an account with Hazrati. Read it carefully.

  • To use our Services, you have to be at least 18 years old. Otherwise, you may only use our Services under the supervision of a legal guardian or parent.
  • It’s not “OK” to use phony, bogus, fake, or false information on our site, copy content, or impersonate another company or individual through your account. Provide accurate information and be honest with us and the rest of the community.
  • Your identity on Hazrati is tracked via your username. Choose a nice one and avoid using a name that is in any way vulgar, offensive, and infringes someone else’s intellectual property.
  • Your account is your responsibility. All activities you perform, the information you share with other people, it’s all your responsibility. Also, accounts are not transferable and if you share an account with another person, the billing information on the account will ultimately be responsible for all activity.
  • We do our best to provide topnotch security and safety for our users/members. But you too are responsible for the activity and safety of your account. So, keep your account secure with a strong password.
  • These terms of creating an account with Hazrati don’t create a franchisee, employment, joint venture, partnership, or agency relationship between you and us.

Your Content

Content that you post on our website or while using our Services is “Your Content”. We don’t take any responsibility for it and neither do we make any claims to it. This includes anything you post while using our Services, including videos, comments, reviews, listing descriptions, listing photos, profile pictures, shop names, usernames, etc.

  • As mentioned earlier, you are solely responsible for all activity on your account. This means, the content you post is also your responsibility and you must make sure you aren’t violating or infringing any third party’s right by posting it.
  • If you post Your Content through our Services, you automatically grant Hazrati the license to use it. We will not claim any ownership of Your Content, but we have your permission for using it to help our marketplace grow. This way, we can also help you in promoting your stuff.
  • Hazrati respects intellectual property rights and is determined to follow the appropriate guidelines and legal procedures for removing infringed content from our Services. If your content infringers another party’s property rights, we will notify you and remove it.
  • There are certain types of content we wouldn’t appreciate you posting on Hazrati (for legal reasons). By using our Services, you agree to not post any content that is vulgar, obscene, defamatory, threatening, abusive, or otherwise in violation to our Terms. You also agree to not post content that is misleading or false in a matter that is deceptive or fraudulent.
  • By posting Your Content on our website or while using our Services, you grant Hazrati a perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, worldwide, and non-exclusive license to prepare, store, distribute, reproduce, modify, edit, display, or use derivative works of Your Content to promote Hazrati and our Services in general.

This may sound like a lot, but it’s necessary for us to keep Hazrati going. For instance, if you post a gorgeous photo of an amazing handmade necklace, we may feature it on our homepage helping you promote your business and our Services. If you post a description in English, we might translate it into French so that buyers from Paris can learn about the story and features regarding the product you are selling. If you upload a photo, first, we have the permission for displaying it to other buyers, and second, we resize it so it looks good to buyers on the website and our mobile app.

Policy Enforcement

When a seller or buyer issue arises, we may consider or take into factor the user’s performance history and the specific circumstances in which we can help each desired party in accordance to our policies. We may even choose to be more lenient with policy enforcement and related laws and guidelines in an effort to do the right thing for both sellers and buyers.

Listing Conditions

When you list an item or product on Hazrati, you are agreeing to comply with our Selling Practices Policy and rules for listing:

  • You are solely responsible for the accuracy and relevancy of the content posted on each of the listings and items offered.
  • Your listing may not be immediately searchable by category or keyword for several weeks, as we have to ensure it meets all set guidelines.
  • If you post any content that violates or goes against Hazrati’s policies, your listing may be deleted or suspended at Hazrati’s discretion.
  • Since we aim to create a marketplace where buyers can find exactly what they want or are looking for, the placement and appearance of listings in browse and search results will depend on a variety of factors and our internal algorithm, which include but not limited to number of listing matching the buyer’s query, sellers history, return rate, feedback, Hazrati policy compliance, seller ratings, item’s location, relevance to user query, history, end time, terms of service, shipping cost, price, listing format, etc.
  • If the above set of guidelines for posting a listing isn’t met, the item may not appear in some browse and search results, regardless of the preferred order chosen by the buyer. Some advanced listing upgrades may also only be visible on certain Services.
  • Hazrati has a duplicate listing policy and strictly prohibits the use of plagiarized content. If any of your listings are plagiarized or duplicate another listing, it will affect the way or order your listing appears upon performing a search or simply browsing the site.
  • URL links, Meta tags, and title tags that are included in a listing could be altered or removed, as to not affect third-party search engine results.

Beware to keep the above set guidelines in mind when posting a listing. Also understand that we may provide you with optional recommendations to consider when creating your listings. This way, you can get more value from the listing, as the recommendations will strictly be based on the performance history and aggregated sales of current and similar listings. This may require us to display the performance or sales history of your individual listings to other sellers to provide better recommendations and tips.

  • For working with craftsman or sending in items for repair the maximum limit on value of an item/s that can be sent at a time is $950 and this limit can change from time to time at our sole discretion without prior notice. You would be sending these at your sole risk of damage or complete loss. You should get these insured by your own insurance company. Our responsibility is limited to refund of commission charged on repair job only, under any or all circumstances whatsoever they may be. In the event of job work done by a craftsman is not satisfactory it’s the sole discretion of craftsman whether he/she refunds the cost of repair.
