3. ACCOUNT REGISTRATION

3.1 To have your Products up for sale on the Service as a Supplier, you need to apply for an Account by submitting an application to Droppe. In order to be a Supplier on the Service and in order for each Product to be eligible for sale on the Service, you must fulfil Droppe’s requirements for Suppliers, which could be e.g. that you are the manufacturer of the Products in Europe yourself or import the Products to Europe and are the official distributor of the Products in an European country. By accepting these Terms and providing the requested information (including any necessary documentation evidencing product compliance and safety) during the Supplier application process, you authorise Droppe and its affiliates to conclude contracts with Buyers on the sale of Products. Droppe will use good faith efforts to review your application to become a Supplier as soon as possible. You acknowledge that Droppe is not obligated to accept you as a Supplier.

3.2 Droppe understands that Suppliers have exclusive sales representatives in certain territories. If you have such sales representatives, Droppe may, depending on the circumstances and regulations, work with you to limit Droppe’s sales of your Products in the relevant geographical areas so that you do not receive orders from those geographical areas. To discuss this, you will need to contact Droppe by emailing ask@droppe.fi.

4. USING THE SERVICE

4.1 Sale of Products

4.1.1 The Supplier acknowledges and agrees that it is the seller of all Products offered for sale and sold through the Service and that title to the sold Products shall pass to Droppe when the sold Products are physically received by the Buyer, whereafter title to the Products shall pass to the Buyer upon payment of the Products and the applicable shipping costs. The Supplier is Droppe’s contractual counterparty in respect of all sales of the Supplier’s Products made through the Service and Droppe is the Buyer’s contractual counterparty in respect of all sales of the Supplier’s Products made through the Service. As Droppe does not at any point in time physically take control over the Products, the Supplier remains liable towards Droppe for any defective, damaged, lost or otherwise non-conforming Products even after the title to the Products has been transferred to Droppe, until the Buyer’s contractual or legal (whichever is longer) right to present claims regarding the Products has ended. Products are shipped and delivered to the Buyers by the Supplier under its sole responsibility. The Products are at the risk of the Supplier until the Products have been delivered to the delivery address provided by the Buyer or physically handed over to the Buyer. The risk of the Products shall not at any time transfer to Droppe, but always directly from the Supplier to the Buyer.

4.1.2 The Supplier acknowledges and agrees that all Products are offered and sold to Buyers in accordance with the Buyer Terms of Service, as amended from time to time, and that e.g. defectiveness of Products is determined in accordance with the Buyer Terms of Service. If separate Terms are agreed with a Buyer for a one-off case that affect the Supplier, these will be communicated promptly to the Supplier.

4.1.3 The Supplier assumes full responsibility and liability for any Product offered or sold using our Service, including without limitation the Product’s safety, quality, performance and functioning, and the accuracy and content of each Product Page displaying a Product. The Supplier is solely responsible for any non-conformity or defect of a Product or its shipping in relation to the Buyer Terms of Service, the Product Page or these Terms, and for compliance with any applicable laws, regulations and public agency orders and recommendations, such as product recalls.

4.1.4 Droppe will notify you if a Buyer reports only to Droppe of a claim or issue in relation to an order of Products, e.g. reporting that a Product is damaged or non-conforming to its description, there is an issue regarding delivery, or if items are missing. You shall actively assist Droppe in all ways in order to resolve the issue with the Buyer as soon as possible. Even though Droppe handles the communication with the Buyer, you acknowledge and agree that the Supplier alone is responsible for resolving any claim or issue, including e.g. making a claim with your shipping provider and refunding the Buyer (via Droppe) for any damaged, disappeared, excessively delayed or defective Products as well as any additional costs and damages incurred by Droppe due to the issue, and you hereby release Droppe from any liability with regard to any claims and issues by any party in relation to your Products and/or deliveries of Products.

4.2 Product Page

Droppe may also translate and display each Product Page on all the different language versions of the Service. You agree that Droppe may adjust, edit or remove the Content you submit to Droppe for the Product Page in order to comply with Droppe’s internal specifications and requirements. Droppe reserves the right to reject Content that violates Droppe’s guidelines, these Terms, applicable legislation or the rights of third parties. Droppe has the right to decide on the visual look and the exact wordings of the Product Page at its sole discretion.

4.2.2 In order for Droppe to create your Product Pages, you must provide technical and other specifications in the format requested by Droppe as well as high resolution photographs (displaying the Product and its usage), all in accordance with Droppe’s guidelines. You shall also communicate to Droppe the minimum order quantity of each Product, as set out in Section 4.5 below. Droppe may ask for additional information as needed.

4.2.3 During the onboarding of your Product(s), Droppe will create a Product Page for each Product and the name of the Supplier. This information is always available in our Service. In case you do not approve of the Product Page or a version of it in another language, you shall send an email to Droppe stating clearly what parts of the Product Page should in your opinion be amended and how. If you do not in writing disapprove of the Product Page, the Product Page is deemed to have been accepted by you as such. In case Droppe, at any time, suspects that some information or other Content is missing from that provided by you for the Product Page, Droppe may request further information or other Content from you and you shall be obligated to cooperate with Droppe in respect of such request and provide the missing Content.

4.2.4 Regardless of anything stated in this Section 4.2, the Supplier shall in all cases be liable for all texts, photographs and other possible Content displayed on each Product Page of the Supplier’s Products. The Supplier is solely liable for the accuracy, completeness and legality of all texts, photographs and other Content displayed on the Product Page. The Supplier shall promptly ask Droppe to amend the Product Page, if the Product Page doesn’t contain accurate, complete or up-to-date information on the Product.

Droppe will select the best quality and most appropriate photographs for your Product Page. You shall send us new photographs of the Products well in advance of changes in labelling or other attributes taking effect, so that the Buyer will in all cases receive the same Product as depicted in the photographs on the Product Page.

4.5 Order Minimums

4.5.1 You may specify the minimum amount of the same Product which must be ordered by the Buyer in order for you to be willing to sell the Product on the Service. The amount set may vary between Products.

4.6 Product Pricing

4.6.1 You agree that the price points of your Products sold to Droppe for the Service shall not be lower in your own direct sales channels (e.g. sale of the same Products to end users through your own website) in the applicable region.

4.6.2 You agree that Droppe may perform routine price and content reviews of the Products listed on your Product Pages. In the event a discrepancy is found between your own direct sales channels and your Product Pages, Droppe may reach out to you to resolve the issue. If you fail to properly and/or timely respond to the discrepancy, Droppe reserves the right to temporarily suspend or permanently terminate your Account.
