We are Grabr, Inc. («Grabr,» «Us,» «We,» or «Our»), and we are a platform that helps to define, create and connect a global community of friends and colleagues who not only want to celebrate shared interests, but who also want to minimize cultural, geographic and social divisions between them through online and offline communications and interactions. Our friends and our community are bound together by many things, including a desire to share items, goods, products or services (which we call «Grab'd Items») between those who may seek to obtain them globally (whom we call «Shoppers») and those willing to help bring them to their friends, whom we call «Travelers»). We do this through our website, located at https://grabr.io, and through our applications, which may be available from third party sites for various mobile and computing devices, and through our products, services and information, all of which we collectively refer to as the «Grabr Platform.»

Payment Terms and Appointment of Grabr as Limited Payment Collection Agent
Payments-Related Representations and Warranties
As set forth above, except where we otherwise specifically agree in writing, Grabr does not own, create, sell, offer, resell, provide, control, manage, buy, offer to buy, bring, or offer to bring or supply any Grab’d Items or any other tangible or intangible thing that You may discuss with another Member. When Shoppers and Travelers make or accept an offer to transact, they are entering into a contract with each other, and even though Grabr may act as a limited payment collection agent as defined below, it is not a party to any agreement discussed or entered into between Members.
Grabr may restrict the availability of payment services, or any aspect or feature of payment services, to perform maintenance of systems to help ensure the proper functioning of the system or to improve, enhance, modify, suspend or terminate any payment service, or to introduce new or additional services at any time, including through additional third parties. The payment-related services may contain links to certain third-party websites, applications, services or resources («Third Party Services»). Any such Third Party Services are subject to different terms or conditions and privacy practices created or controlled by third party providers and not Grabr, and Members should review them carefully and independently. Grabr is not responsible for or liable for the availability, accuracy, reliability or anything related to Third Party Services, including the content thereon. Links or other access to information of Third Party Service providers shall not constitute an endorsement by Grabr of such providers or their services.
You may not use Grabr's payment related services except as authorized by the laws of the United States of America, the laws of the jurisdiction where you reside, and any other applicable laws. Specifically, but not by way of limitation, Grabr's payment related services may not be used to send or receive funds or currency into (i) any United States embargoed countries; (ii) to anyone on the United States Treasury Department's list of Specially Designated Nationals or the United States Commerce Department's list of Denied Persons List or Entry List. By agreeing to these Terms, by accessing and/or using the Grabr Platform, you further represent and warrant that (i) neither you nor the subject of your transaction (e.g., items, goods, products, services, tangible or intangible things) are located in a country that is subject to a United States Government embargo, or that has been designated by the United States Government as a «terrorist supporting» country; and (ii) that you are not listed on any United States Government list of prohibited or restricted parties. Additionally, notwithstanding your agreement to the above relating to the laws of the United States of America and its subdivisions, localities and municipalities, you also hereby agree to comply fully with relevant export and import and customs laws in your local country and jurisdiction.
Payment Processing Services
Payment processing services, which are a key feature of the Grabr Platform, are currently provided by Stripe, and where applicable, may include money transmission services pursuant to licenses or other regulatory approvals held by Stripe. Payment processing services provided by Stripe are subject to the Stripe Connected Account Agreement, which includes the Stripe Services Agreement. By agreeing to these Terms or by accessing, searching or using the Grabr Platform, You agree to be bound by the Stripe Connected Account Agreement and the Stripe Services Agreement, as they may be amended or modified from time-to-time by Stripe. Grabr's provision of any payment processing services through Stripe is subject, and conditioned upon, Your agreement to provide Grabr up-to-date, accurate, and complete information relating to you and your payment instrument(s) and You expressly authorize Grabr to share this information and transaction-related information relating to your use of payment related services with Stripe. Grabr reserves the right to provide payment processing services through other third party vendors, and if it choose to do so, will provide notice to you via Grabr Messaging or through another method.
Appointment of Grabr as Limited Payment Collection Agent
By agreeing to these Terms, and in accessing or using the Grabr Platform, Travelers appoint Grabr as their respective limited payment collection agent, authorized to receive and collect payments for transactions entered into between Members, including (i) Item Costs, (ii) Grabr Service Fees, (iii) Traveler's Fees, (iv) Acceleration Fees, if any, and (iv) Taxes and other Government Regulatory Fees (for example, without limitation duties, tariffs or government charges) («Total Fees») owed by Shoppers to Travelers as set forth in these Terms. Payments made by Shoppers to Grabr in connection with an Offer shall be considered the same as a payment made directly to Travelers, and Travelers agree to provide the Grab’d Items to Shoppers in the agreed-upon manner as if the Traveler has received payment directly from Shoppers. You further agree that Grabr's obligation to remit payments to Travelers is conditioned upon and extends only to sums that it has successfully received from Shoppers in accordance with the relevant agreements, and also that in accepting appointment as the limited payment collection agent, Grabr assumes no liability for any acts or omissions of Shoppers or Travelers, Members or any other person. As limited payment collection agent, Grabr assumes no liability or obligation for any funds or obligations owed by Shoppers that were not collected by Grabr in its role under this Paragraph.
Each Shopper and Traveler acknowledges and agrees that, notwithstanding the fact that Grabr is not a party to the agreement between Travelers and Shoppers, Grabr acts as the Travelers payment collection agent for the limited purpose of accepting collection from Shoppers on behalf of the Traveler. Upon Shoppers' remittance to Grabr, Shoppers' payment obligation to the Traveler for agreed upon amounts is extinguished, and Grabr is responsible for remitting funds collected to Travelers in the agreed upon manner. In the event that Grabr does not remit such amounts, Travelers' recourse is only against Grabr, and not Shoppers directly.
If any Member does not make a payment properly, or if Grabr cannot properly charge a payment method on file with it, or any other payment method for any reason, Grabr expressly reserves all rights under applicable law to recover payment as well as all of its costs and expenses incurred, including reasonable attorneys' or other professionals' fees, in pursuing such payment(s).
Transactions Between Shoppers and Travelers on Grabr
Grabr strives to make the Grabr Platform useful, simple and efficient. Grabr Shoppers located globally may gain access to friends who have better availability to Grab'd Items in other markets who may be fully willing to bring these items to their Grabr friends and colleagues. At the same time, Grabr enables Travelers to help their friends and community, and may even help them defray the time and expense of their travel to see and help their global Grabr friends. Through the Grabr Platform, Grabr helps to bring diverse groups of people together, and hopefully, to minimize the differences and divisions that can accumulate over time, geographical distance and cultures.
As set forth more fully below, in a typical transaction facilitated on the Grabr Platform, the Shopper publishes an invitation called a «Shopper Request» which identifies desired Grab'd Items. Interested Travelers or Travelers matched by the Grabr Platform, may then make offers to bring Grab’d Items on terms expressed between Members in a «Traveler's Offer.» When agreed upon, execution of the «Shopper's Acceptance, fixes the final and binding agreement between the Members.
The Shopper Request
After finding an Item of interest, Shoppers must create a valid Shopper's Request. The Shopper’s Request is made when the Shopper uses the Grabr Platform submission tool to (i) describe the item specifically including the price; (ii) to add the location (City and Country) where the Shopper is or where they want the Grab'd Items brought, and (iii) to add the desired receipt date. Grabr advises Shoppers to be as specific as possible, and provides a place to «Include a Note to Your Traveler» to help ensure that a Traveler obtains and brings only the desired item. Shoppers shall not request Prohibited Grab'd Items.
Prohibited Grab’d Items
Grabr Shoppers expressly agree not to use the Grabr Platform or to request that a Traveler obtain or bring any item that is prohibited under the laws of the United States and/or its subdivisions, or of any international laws or laws of any local jurisdiction applicable to Members, goods, transit or destination. It is the responsibility of both the Shopper (and not Grabr) to refrain from requesting or bringing any Item that is prohibited either by the jurisdiction of disembarkation, transit or embarkation. Prohibited items include, but are not limited, to:
Hazardous Materials as defined by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) the United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT), the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) or by the United States Department of Commerce (DOC), United States Customs and Borders Protection (CBP), United States Department of Homeland Security or similar agencies, national, state and local.
Firearms, ammunition, explosives or chemicals
Pornography or obscene materials
Illegal drugs or regulated drugs (prescription) in violation of law
Any product or item related to illegal activities, such as the production of illegal drugs
Any item that is prohibited by law in the place of origin, destination or any jurisdiction of transit through between origin and destination
Aerosols or any flammable materials
Knives, batons or other weapons
Certain agricultural products
Grab’d Items imported into the United States without a customs declaration where one was required.
When the Shopper creates a Shopper’s Request, the Grabr Platform may auto-calculate a suggested, optimal Traveler Fee, for illustrative purposes in planning the Shopper's transaction. As explained below in the section «Fees,» the actual Traveler Fee on any given transaction is set entirely by the Traveler and may be more than, or less than the suggested Traveler Fee.
The Travelers Offer
To assist Members to locate and communicate with each other, including potentially dates upon which Members can meet in person, The Grabr Platform allows Travelers to enter the details of upcoming travel dates, and to browse published Shopper's Requests made by their Grabr friends. Travelers can indicate their preference to be notified of upcoming Shoppers' Requests that may correspond to their planned trips, or trips that they may be willing to take.
Upon finding a suitable Shopper’s Request, Traveler must submit a «Traveler's Offer». The Traveler's Offer must contain and describe each component of the Total Fees:
The following components that make up the Total Fees must be contained in, and fully described in the Traveler's Offer. When Accepted, the Traveler's Offer establishes the final and total amounts to which the Shopper agrees.
(i) Grab'd Item Cost: Although a Shopper may specify a price in the Request, the actual Grab'd Item Cost shall be the amount specified by the Traveler in the Offer;
(ii) Service Fee: This is as service fee charged by and retained by Grabr for the use of its Grabr Platform by Shoppers and Travelers. Service Fees are collected by Grabr from Shoppers and deducted from remaining amounts remitted to Travelers by Grabr as the Traveler's limited payment collection agent as described above. Service Fees are non-refundable.
(iii) Traveler's Fee: The Traveler's Fee is the amount Shoppers agree to give to their Traveler friends for helping the Shopper. As set forth above, Grabr may estimate a Traveler's Fee for planning purposes, but the actual Traveler's Fee is set by the Traveler in the Offer. The Service Fee and Traveler's Fee may collectively be referred to by Grabr as the «Platform Fees).»
(iv) Acceleration Fee: The Expedited Fee, if any, may be added to Grab'd Items with the consent of both Shopper and Traveler to accelerate the time in which Travelers may obtain and bring Grab'd Items.
(v) Applicable Taxes: Grabr may auto-calculate an estimate of sales and other taxes associated with the Traveler's Offer. Grabr always separately states the Applicable Taxes from the Item Cost, and the Platform Fees.
(vi) All government fees, tariffs and duties are the responsibility of the Traveler and Traveler is required to make sure that the Shopper is aware of such fees prior to accepting the offer.
<a name="import-restrictions-and-charges"></a>Import Restrictions and Charges
It is the sole responsibility of the Travelers to be familiar with, to specify, and to include in the Traveler's Offer, any and all applicable customs duties, tariffs, and charges applicable to Grab'd Items. Although not exhaustive, Grabr may provide links to certain government and third party sites where Members can find out more information about their travel destinations and rules and regulations applicable to their travel, including:
When the Shopper and Traveler have agreed to all aspects, including applicable timing and Total Fees, the Shopper must agree to the Traveler's Offer, in what we call the «Shopper's Acceptance.» The Shopper's Acceptance is a agreement on all material terms between a Shopper and Traveler, under which they agree to be bound to each other to in the manner agreed.
Ownership, Acceptance, Risk of Loss and Insurance
Members acknowledge and agree that except where prohibited by applicable law or otherwise agreed to by Members, it is the Travelers, and not Shoppers, who own Grab'd Items and must maintain for presentment all original receipts evidencing such ownership. Members also acknowledge and agree that to the maximum extent allowed by law, the risk of loss remains with the Traveler unless and until the Traveler has completed all of the obligations under his or her agreement with the Shopper, which includes bringing the items as agreed.
Grabr recommends that Shoppers and Travelers procure their own insurance to cover the cost and expenses relating to a Grab. Grabr may, but is not obligated to recommend or to offer links where Shoppers and/or Traveler's may procure insurance relating to their Grabs.
Acceptance of Grab'd Items
The Shopper and Travelers must agree at the time the Shopper's Request is accepted by the Traveler on a specific time period for acceptance of the Grab'd items. Travelers shall bear the responsibility to identify an acceptable safe and public place to meet with their Shoppers for the purpose of inspection and exchange of goods. The time for delivery can be extended only by written agreement between the Shooper and Traveler on the Grabr Platform, or by Grabr. Unless the parties otherwise agree in writing, it is the Shopper's obligation to inspect and accept the Grab'd items at the time of delivery, and the agreement between the parties is deemed complete at the time of acceptance regardless of whether the Shopper shows up to inspect and accept Grab'd items. Unless the Traveler and Shopper have agreed otherwise in writing, if the goods are not made available for delivery and acceptance within five (5) days of the delivery date, and the Shopper has not inspected and accepted the Grab'd Items, the Shopper's Payment Method will be charged and the amounts released to the Traveler. The only permissible method to extend the delivery, inspection and acceptance periods agreed to by the Shopper and Traveler is written communication between the parties on the Grabr Platform or through notification by Grabr through the Grabr Platform.
Rejection and Refunds
Shoppers may refuse to accept the Grab'd items only if the Traveler has brought incorrect goods (for example, specifications which differ from the agreement between the parties, in terms of brand, color, style, size, etc.) or the condition of the Grab's items is other than that agreed to between the parties (for example, damaged or used items or otherwise not in the condition represented). Shoppers may not refuse acceptance of Grab'd items because they changed their mind about the transaction, or through an attempt to renegotiate the price of the items or because they have found the items elsewhere. Shoppers agree that Grabr, in its sole discretion, may determine whether the reason for rejection is acceptable under applicable policies and if Grabr determines the rejection is impermissible or unauthorized, Shoppers agree that their Payment Method may be charge and the transaction completed as agreed to by the parties. Except as set forth above, in instances where the Shopper fails to appear for inspection and acceptance within five (5) days of the delivery date, Shoppers are required to confirm inspection and acceptance of Grab'd items in the Grabr messaging on the Platform in order to release funds to Travelers.
In Grabr's sole discretion, it may offer Shoppers and Travelers the option to request, pay for and perform an «Instant Grab» where Members can agree to all relevant terms up front without negotiation. With Instant Grab, when enabled, the Shopper Requests Grab'd Items, and agrees that his or her chosen payment method will be charged for the full amount of Total Fees upon the Traveler's Acceptance. With Instant Grab, the Shopper, and not the Traveler, establishes or confirms all components of the Total Fees at the time of the Shopper's Offer, including the Item Cost, the Service Fee, the Traveler's Fee, the Acceleration Fee (if applicable), the Applicable Taxes. All Total Fees are established when the Shopper makes the offer and the Shopper’s payment method is charged at the time of the Traveler’s acceptance.
Travelers who wish to perform an Instant Grab can select one or more Instant Grabs that correspond to their chosen or preferred travel, and agree that they will receive only the amounts specified in the Shopper's Instant Grab Offer. For example, a Traveler accepting an Instant Grab will not be able to adjust the Item Cost or the suggested Traveler Fees when an Instant Grab is accepted by the Traveler. Shoppers remain responsible at all times for paying the Total Fees, including the non-refundable Service Fee, as specified in the Instant Grab.
Grabr may offer alternative options for the timing and manner of payment for Grab'd Items, in its sole discretion.
If Grabr is unable to collect any amounts due from Shoppers under these Terms via the chosen payment method, Shopper authorize Grabr to charge any other payment method on file with Grabr (unless any have been previously removed or the authorization to charge them has been previously rescinded). Shopper's also expressly authorize Grabr to recover any costs and expenses it incurs in collecting any Total Fees not paid or collected via your chosen payment method that remain due and owing. Grabr is not responsible for any fees or charges that a third party payment processor may impose when payment methods are charged or disputed, and disclaims all such liability.

<a name="arbitration"></a>Arbitration and Class Action Waiver
Please Read this Section Carefully. It Affects Your Legal Rights, Including Your Right to File a Lawsuit In Court.
You and Grabr agree that these Terms affect interstate commerce and that the Federal Arbitration Act, governs the interpretation and enforcement of these arbitration provisions.
The term «Dispute» means any dispute, claim or controversy between us that arises out of this agreement, or the use of the Grabr platform, or the relationship between us, regardless of legal theory and includes claims that accrued before the date You entered into this agreement as well as claims relating to the interpretation, validity, enforcement or scope of the agreement to arbitrate disputes contained in this Section. The term «Dispute» is to be interpreted in the broadest sense allowed by law. The only disputes excluded from this broad provision are claims that can be resolved in Small Claims Court and certain intellectual property claims, as provided below.
By agreeing to these Terms, You agree to resolve any and all disputes with Grabr as follows:
Initial Dispute Resolution: Most disputes can be resolved without resort to arbitration or litigation. You can reach Grabr's support department by sending request here. Except for intellectual property and small claims court claims, the parties agree to use their best efforts to resolve all disputes in good faith negotiations between them, which both agree is a precondition to either initiating an arbitration or lawsuit.
You and Grabr each understands that, absent the mandatory arbitration provision in this Section, they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. You also acknowledge that You are giving up the right to a jury trial and understand that the costs of arbitration and right to pre-trial discovery is more limited than many courts permit.
Location of Arbitration. We both agree that arbitration between Grabr and Providers shall take place in the City and County of San Francisco.
Class Action Waiver: Providers and Grabr each agrees that any and all arbitration shall be conducted in their individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis or any other representative basis. YOU AND GRABR AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver above is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provisions set forth above shall be deemed null and void in their entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.
Exception: Litigation of Intellectual Property and Small Claims Court Claims: Notwithstanding Your and Grabr's decision to resolve all disputes through mandatory arbitration, either party may bring enforcement actions, validity determinations or claims arising from or relating to theft, piracy or unauthorized use of intellectual property in state or federal court or in the United States Patent and Trademark Office to protect its intellectual property rights («intellectual property rights» means patents, copyrights, moral rights, trademarks, and trade secrets, but not privacy or publicity rights). Either party may also seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court's jurisdiction.
Survival. This Arbitration and Class Action Waiver section will not be affected by any termination of Your Account or the Grabr Platform and will survive termination of the relationship between You and Grabr.
