TERMS OF SERVICE
Updated April 28, 2023
Please carefully read this agreement. By accessing or using our websites, applications or services, you agree that you have read and unreservedly agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this agreement.
If you do not agree to these terms of service, or you do not meet the qualifications included in this agreement, Ronati, Inc. is then unwilling to provide you with access to or use of our websites, applications or services, and you must not access or use them.
THESE TERMS OF SERVICE (the “Agreement” or “Terms”) set forth the terms under which Ronati, Inc., a Delaware corporation (together with its successors, affiliates and assignees: “Ronati”, the “Company”, “we” or “us”) will provide services to you (the “Customer” or “you”) including access to our websites and mobile applications (collectively, the “Site”) and the use of our applications and technology platforms, including but not limited to web hosted services for the tracking and promotion/purchase/sale of items, as well as various software, support services, and/or other services (collectively, “Services”). You and Ronati may each also be referred to as a “Party” and together as the “Parties.” Any individual accessing our Services through your account will be referred to as a “User.”
Your compliance with these Terms is a condition to your use of our Site and Services. If you do not agree to be bound by the Terms, promptly exit the Site and Services.
The Terms, as amended from time to time, constitute the entire agreement between Ronati and you pertaining to the subject matter hereof.
RONATI IS WILLING TO GRANT ACCESS TO YOU AS THE INDIVIDUAL, COMPANY OR LEGAL ENTITY THAT WILL BE USING OUR SITE OR SERVICES ON THE CONDITION THAT YOU ACCEPT ALL TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU ARE ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT ON BEHALF OF AN ORGANIZATION, YOU REPRESENT THAT YOU HAVE THE LEGAL AUTHORITY TO BIND THAT ENTITY OR ORGANIZATION TO THIS AGREEMENT, AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOUR ORGANIZATION WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ENSURING THAT EACH OF ITS USERS COMPLIES WITH THE TERMS.
Ronati offers various Services that, among other things, facilitate the tracking, search, marketing and/or sale of unique items, including Inventory management and eCommerce solutions such as:
A software-as-a-service (“SaaS”) inventory management platform that is designed for one-of-a-kind items and gives customers the ability to publish unique inventory products on one or more third-party marketplaces (the “eCommerce Manager” or “eCM”) The action of publishing to third-party marketplaces is referred to as “Syndication”, which results in published “Listings”. (Listings also may refer to items published to Ronati-affiliated applications or websites).
A stand-alone inventory management solution without Syndication (“Inventory Manager”), accessible via websites and/or software applications.
Applications to promote items and facilitate the exchange of information about items of interest; to link items of interest to Listings or potential sources where they might be purchased; and complete purchase/sale transactions in the items sourced. For example, we have a Service platform called “Curate” whereby partners (“curators”) promote, on their own websites and social media, items that might be available for purchase on our Curate platform.
Disputes about the Terms, or about our Services and Site, are subject to binding arbitration and a waiver of class action rights (detailed in Section 16, below).

4. Buyers/Sellers: Terms of Purchase/Sale.
(a) We provide tools and platforms for the marketing and sale of one-of-a-kind items, such as furnishings, antiques, and other goods. This Section relates specifically to our partner-curated flash sale program (“Curate”), and to similar purchase/sale Services that we may provide to connect and serve buyers/sellers.
(b) We sell the items (“Items”) that various dealers (as “Seller” or “Consignor”) have agreed to offer through us (collectively, the “Property”) through Curate on a consignment basis (“Consignment”). All Items will be sold “As-Is”, “With All Faults”. This does not affect the statutory rights of consumers that may apply depending on the jurisdiction in which the consumer is located.
(c) When a Buyer identifies an Item he would like to purchase, the Buyer may make an offer to purchase the Item (“Offer”) directly through Curate’s checkout page, or by contacting Ronati through another method. When making an Offer, the Buyer shall submit valid payment information to Ronati for payment of the Total Purchase Price. The “Total Purchase Price” is defined as the price agreed to between Buyer and Ronati and includes: (i) the final, agreed upon price of the Item (the “Purchase Price”); (ii) any applicable shipping fees; and (iii) any sales tax, use tax, VAT, Internet sales tax and/or any other taxes or levies that Ronati and/or the Seller is required to collect from the Buyer under applicable law at the time of sale.
(d) If We accept the Offer, We will send the Buyer and Seller an email or other message (“Confirmation”) confirming that an Item of consigned Property has been sold, with instructions regarding next steps (i.e., shipping and delivery).
(e) The Buyer is entirely responsible for paying all applicable sales and use taxes, VAT, export and/or import taxes and duties and all transactional taxes or levies related to each Item purchased (collectively, “Taxes”). The Buyer shall pay such Taxes as the Ronati and/or Seller is required to collect, but failure of Ronati and/or the Seller to collect the Taxes will not relieve the Buyer’s obligation. The Buyer must determine, pay, collect, remit and report to the appropriate taxing authority the correct amount of all export and/or import taxes or duties payable upon export of the Item from its country of origin and import into the United States or any other country. In the event that an any exemption might apply to Taxes, it is the Buyer’s sole responsibility to establish and/or document the applicable exemption from Taxes.
(f) Buyers are responsible for all applicable shipping costs incurred with respect to their purchased Item.
i. Buyer-arranged shipping. The crating/shipping/insurance companies designated by the Buyer are the Buyer’s agents. Typically, Ronati will connect the Buyer to a third-party shipping vendor with pre-advertised prices for crating/packaging, shipping and/or freight insurance, and the Buyer will pay such costs through Ronati. If that shipping quote is not acceptable, the Buyer should not move forward with the purchase (unless alternative arrangements, if available, are made). In some cases, the Buyer may elect to pick up an Item directly from Seller (“Local Pickup”) or may arrange shipping with a company of its choice and pay such costs directly to the agents.
ii. Seller-arranged shipping. In some cases, Seller may offer (seller-managed) local delivery (“Local Delivery”); and if not, in some cases, the Buyer may elect to have the Seller arrange for crating, packaging, shipping and freight insurance. Following the Buyer’s request, the Seller shall provide shipping information including the name of the freight carrier, the complete cost of shipment from the Seller to the Buyer’s designated receiving address, the cost of any duty or other charges to be paid by the Buyer, the cost of freight insurance and the name of such insurance provider, as well as any costs or fees to be charged by the for crating or packaging the Items for shipment. The Buyer and the Seller shall mutually agree on shipment terms and the Buyer shall prepay all shipment costs.
(g) Delivery Of Consigned Property; Risk Of Loss
i. Ronati accepts the risk of loss or damage to Consigned Property only in the unusual case where we, Ronati, take physical possession of the Consigned Property.
ii. In the case of Buyer-arranged shipping or Local Pickup, risk of loss and title for such Items pass to Buyer upon (i) Seller’s delivery of the Item to the Buyer’s selected carrier, or (ii) when Buyer picks up the Item from the Seller.
iii. In the case of Seller-arranged shipping or Local Delivery, risk of loss and title for Items pass to Buyer upon Buyer’s (or its nominated third party) receipt of the Item.
iv. We will advise Seller if a Buyer reports that an Item is damaged or if a shipment is missing items. We will pass along any photographs of any damaged item or of the shipment as a whole. The Buyer is responsible for reaching out to Ronati, or directly to Seller, in an attempt to resolve the issue.
v. Buyers and Sellers acknowledge and agree that they will work diligently with us to resolve the issue, including but not limited to making a claim with their shipping provider.
(h) Buyer Cancellations and Returns
Unless specified otherwise by Seller (with notice given to Buyer through our platform), Sellers agree to abide by our standard cancellation and return policy for all Items:
Prior to shipping, Local Pickup, or Local Delivery, Buyers may be able to cancel an order. They are encouraged to notify Us within 24 hours of purchase if they would like to cancel an order, as prompt cancellation will reduce the likelihood that Buyers will incur shipping charges, out and back.
Once shipping has been initiated, the cancellation will be considered a return, and Buyer will be responsible for packaging and shipping the returned item, including both the outbound shipping costs and the costs to return the order to the seller.
For local pickup and delivery, Buyer or Buyer’s agent must reject the item at the time of pickup or delivery from the Seller.
Cross-border orders cannot be cancelled once shipping has been initiated.
Buyers have an unconditional right to return an Item if it:
• Does not arrive;
• Is materially different than described; or
• Is broken during transit (except where Buyer has arranged its own shipping).
Buyers have 48 hours after delivery to inspect their Item(s) and contact Us if they wish to return an Item. If Buyer is not satisfied with a purchase for any other reason, our return policy still applies, as follows:
• On approved returns, Buyer is responsible for the outbound and return shipping charges.
• Each returned item must be received in original condition. We reserve the right to deduct from Buyer for any damage that may have occurred not related to transportation.
All sales are final 48 hours after delivery.
Orders where Local Pickup or Seller Managed Local Delivery is available and selected: Upon inspection, If Buyer decides not to move forward with the purchase, Buyer or Buyer’s agent must refuse the item at the time of pickup/delivery from the Seller. Once Buyer has taken possession of the item, all sales are final.
International, cross-border returns may require different processes depending on the countries between which the Item is shipping to/from, and the Buyer is responsible for duties (if applicable) on cross-border orders.
We are committed to preventing the sale of counterfeit and inauthentic goods. However, Sellers are responsible in the first instance for ensuring the authenticity of all items Sellers provide to us. We are subject to laws and regulations relating to claims that items offered to us or on Curate are counterfeit, have been stolen, or otherwise violate applicable law. We take such reports seriously and will cooperate with law enforcement in all investigations.

If you upload any content or information to Ronati using any tools we offer, you confirm that you own the rights and/or have legal permission to use such information.

If you decide to access any of the Third-Party Websites linked to our Site, you do this entirely at your own risk.
7.3 It is possible that the Third-Party Websites we link to from our Site may make unrequested changes, alternations or deletions to your Listing instructions, resulting in Listings that are different than your instructions according to their own terms and conditions, in which case we would refer you to their terms and conditions for the use of their websites.

These warranties will not apply to any failure caused by a defect in or modification to the applicable services caused or made by you, any User, or a person acting at your direction.
9. Subscribers: Billing and Payment; Auto-Renewal
9.1 During a Free Trial Period (typically one month), you will be able to access and use various features of eCM. Near the end of the Free Trial Period, you will have the opportunity to confirm your subscription level and submit a payment method to continue your Subscription Services. Ronati reserves the right to terminate or refuse Free Trials at any time and without notice.
9.2 For Subscription Services, payment is due at the beginning of the relevant subscription term. You will be billed on a recurring, periodic basis (each period a “Billing Cycle”) and Ronati will charge you for all fees when due. Billing Cycles are typically one month but could be different depending on what subscription plan you selected.
Your subscription will automatically renew at the end of each Billing Cycle and you authorize Ronati to charge your card, debit card or other non-invoice form of payment for each renewal unless you cancel your subscription at least 3 days before your scheduled auto-renewal date at email@example.com, to prevent your card from being charged automatically.
We will not prorate or refund any portion of your Subscription fee for any period time you do not use our Services.
We may change the subscription fee charged for our Services at any time. Any changes will become effective at the end of your then-current Billing Cycle.
If you upgrade your account, Ronati will credit any remaining balance applicable from your previous subscription payment to your upgrade.
9.3 All payments due are in U.S. dollars unless otherwise indicated on the subscription pricing page, purchase order or invoice.
9.4 In order to use our Services, you must provide information for at least one valid payment method. Ronati makes the following methods of payment available: credit cards, in some cases bank accounts, and such other methods of payment as we may accept from time to time in our sole discretion (collectively, “Payment Methods”). Ronati may enable other forms of payment, which may be subject to additional terms. You hereby authorize us to store your Payment Method(s) or other financial information and to charge your Payment Method(s) (as applicable). By providing Payment Method information through Ronati, you represent and warrant that: you are legally authorized to provide such information to us; you are legally authorized to use the Payment Method(s); and such action does not violate the terms and conditions applicable to your use of such Payment Method(s) or applicable law. When you authorize a payment using a Payment Method, you represent and warrant that there are sufficient funds or credit available to complete such payment using your designated Payment Method. To the extent that any amounts owed under this Agreement cannot be collected from your Payment Method(s), you are solely responsible for paying such amounts by other means.
9.5 If your payment method cannot be processed successfully for any reason, Ronati will automatically downgrade your account to a Free Account and/or suspend or terminate your use of the Subscription Services. Downgrading your account will result in the loss of features and functionality. Ronati currently offers a 10-day grace period for delayed payments (“Grace Period”); however, Ronati reserves the right to terminate or refuse the Grace Period at any time and without notice.
9.7 You are responsible for any taxes, duties, and customs fees associated with the sale of our Services (other than Ronati’s income tax) (collectively “Taxes”), and you will pay Ronati for our Services without any reduction for Taxes.

If you are required by law to withhold any Taxes from your payments to Ronati, you must provide Ronati with an official tax receipt or other appropriate documentation to support such withholding and reimburse Ronati for such withholding tax.
9.8 Except as expressly set forth in the Terms or when required by law, all fees are noncancellable and once paid are non-refundable, even in the case of unused subscription periods.

10.3 Either Party may terminate this Agreement and cease the Services if: (a) the other Party is in material breach of the Terms (or has acted in a manner which clearly shows that the Party does not intend to, or is unable to comply with, the provisions of the Terms) and fails to cure such breach within 10 days following receipt of written notice from the non-breaching Party, except that termination will take effect immediately upon notice in the event of a breach of Section 3.6; (b) the other Party ceases its business operations or becomes subject to insolvency proceedings and the proceedings are not dismissed within 60 days; or (c) it is required to do so by law.
10.4 Subscription Services (including Free Accounts):
In addition, Ronati may terminate your subscription and/or close your account, for any or no reason, by giving you 30 days’ written notice to your email address on file and providing a pro rata refund for any prepaid, unused subscription fees for our Services. Ronati reserves the right to suspend access to the Subscription Services if (a) you have undisputed amounts more than 10 days past due; (b) Ronati reasonably determines that you or any Users on your account are in breach of the Terms; or (c) Ronati reasonably determines that you or any Users on your account are using our Services in a way that creates a security vulnerability, may disrupt others’ use of our Services, or have misappropriated or infringed Ronati’s or another third-party’s intellectual property or proprietary rights. Ronati will only suspend access to the extent, and for the duration, necessary to address the violation and will promptly restore access once the issue has been resolved. Ronati will not suspend access if Customer is (reasonably and in good faith) disputing a charge and cooperating in resolving the dispute. You acknowledge and agree that if Ronati disables access to your account, you may be prevented from accessing certain features of the Subscription Services.
Upon termination of this Agreement, (a) Ronati will disable your account and each User’s access to the Services; (b) you will pay any accrued but unpaid fees prior to the effective date of termination; (c) each Party will return and make no further use of, or destroy, any Confidential Information belonging to the other Party, subject to (d); and (d) Ronati will delete all Content in accordance with its automated deletion schedule and back-up policy. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Users maintain a Free Account after cancellation of a paid account, Customer Content in the Free Account will not be deleted until the Free Account permanently deleted, and Free Accounts will remain subject to the Terms. When Services end, all legal rights, obligations and liabilities that you and Ronati have benefited from, been subject to, have accrued, or which must survive in order to give proper effect to their intent, shall be unaffected by this cessation, and the provisions of Section 16 shall continue to apply to such rights, obligations and liabilities indefinitely.
If your paid Subscription Services are downgraded or canceled for any reason, your information and Content may be deactivated but not deleted. In order to delete your data from our servers after ending your relationship with Ronati, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to initiate this process.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, Confidential Information does not include information that: (a) the receiving Party possesses without a duty to keep confidential prior to acquiring it from the disclosing Party; (b) is or becomes publicly available through no violation of this Agreement by the receiving Party; (c) is given to the receiving Party by a third-party not under a confidentiality obligation to the disclosing Party; or (d) is developed by the receiving Party independently of, and without reliance on, confidential or proprietary information provided by the disclosing Party.
11.2 Each Party may be given access to Confidential Information of the other Party in connection with the Terms. The receiving Party may only use this Confidential Information as provided for in the Terms or to exercise its rights hereunder, and except as otherwise allowed by the Terms, may only share this Confidential Information with its employees, agents, advisors and service providers who need to know it, provided they are subject to similar confidentiality obligations. The receiving Party will use the same degree of care, but no less than a reasonable degree of care, as such Party uses with respect to its own Confidential Information to protect the disclosing Party’s Confidential Information and to prevent any unauthorized use or disclosure thereof. Neither Party will be responsible for any loss, destruction, alteration or disclosure of Confidential Information caused by any third party. If the receiving Party is compelled by law to disclose the other Party’s Confidential Information, it will use commercially reasonable efforts to give the disclosing Party prior written notice of such compelled disclosure (to the extent legally permitted) and reasonable assistance, at the disclosing Party’s cost, if the disclosing Party wishes to contest the disclosure.

12.1 You acknowledge that our Services are not designed or intended to process or manage any Protected Information. Ronati will not be responsible for damages associated with Protected Information created, stored, shared or processed through our Services. “Protected Information” means information that is subject to specific regulations or laws that impose increased protections and/or obligations with respect to handling that type of information or that is not appropriate for use in the Subscription Service, as intended.

16. Dispute Resolution and Agreement to Arbitration
16.1 You agree to bring any issue you have related to our Site or Services to the attention of our Customer Service Department at email@example.com, and we will work in good faith to resolve the issue to your satisfaction.
16.2 You and Ronati agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating in any way to the Terms or your use of our Site or Services shall be determined by binding arbitration instead of in courts of general jurisdiction. Arbitration is more informal than bringing a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitration allows for more limited discovery than in court, however, we agree to cooperate with each other to agree to reasonable discovery in light of the issues involved and amount of the claim. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award, but in so doing, the arbitrator shall apply substantive law regarding damages as if the matter had been brought in court, including without limitation, the law on punitive damages as applied by the United States Supreme Court. You agree that, by agreeing to the Terms, the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and Ronati are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement and any other contractual relationship between you and Ronati.
16.3 If you desire to assert a claim against Ronati, and you therefore elect to seek arbitration, you must first send to Ronati, by certified mail, a written notice of your claim to the Notice Address in Section 20. The Notice to Ronati should be addressed to: Legal Department, Ronati, Inc.,1501 Belcher Rd S #1B, Largo, FL 33771, USA (“Notice Address”). If Ronati desires to assert a claim against you and therefore elects to seek arbitration, it will send, by certified mail, a written Notice to the most recent address we have on file or otherwise in our records for you. A Notice, whether sent by you or by Ronati, must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). If Ronati and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Ronati may commence an arbitration proceeding or file a claim in small claims court. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by Ronati or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator. You may download or copy a form Notice and a form to initiate arbitration from the American Arbitration Association at https://www.adr.org. If you are required to pay a filing fee, after Ronati receives notice at the Notice Address that you have commenced arbitration, it will promptly reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for more than US $10,000. The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and Forms are available online at https://www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by requesting them from us by writing to us at the Notice Address. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including issues relating to the scope and enforceability of the Terms, including this arbitration agreement. The place of arbitration shall be Pinellas County, Florida, USA, and the proceedings shall be conducted in the English language. (If you reside outside of the United States, any arbitration hearings will take place in your country of residence at a location reasonably convenient to you but will remain subject to the AAA Rules including the AAA rules regard ing the selection of an arbitrator). If your claim is for US $10,000 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds US $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. If the arbitrator issues you an award that is greater than the value of Ronati’s last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected (or if Ronati did not make a settlement offer before an arbitrator was selected), then Ronati will pay you the amount of the award or US $1,000, whichever is greater. Except as expressly set forth herein, the payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. Each Party shall pay for its own costs and attorneys’ fees, if any. However, if any Party prevails on a statutory claim that affords the prevailing Party attorneys’ fees, or if there is a written agreement providing for payment or recovery attorneys’ fees, the arbitrator may award reasonable fees to the prevailing Party, under the standards for fee shifting provided by law.
16.4 YOU AND RONATI 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. Further, unless both you and Ronati agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims with your claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual Party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that Party’s individual claim.
16.5 If this Agreement to Arbitrate provision is found to be unenforceable, then (a) the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void, but the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect; and (b) exclusive jurisdiction and venue for any claims will be in state or federal courts located in and for Tampa, Florida.
17.1 Headings.. Headings used at various places in this Agreement are provided exclusively for convenience.
17.2 Publicity.. Unless otherwise specified in a purchase order, Ronati may identify you as a customer, and may use your name, corresponding trademark or logo, on our Site or in our customer list, blogs, and other marketing materials or public communications subject to your published brand guidelines. To request removal of this identification, please notify us in writing at firstname.lastname@example.org.
17.3 Lack of Enforceability.. In the event that any of the Terms are held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable, such provisions shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that the Terms shall otherwise remain in full force and effect.
17.4 Governing Law.. The Terms, and your relationship with Ronati under the Terms, shall be governed by the laws of the State of Florida without regard to its conflict or choice of laws rules.
17.5 Notice.. You agree that Ronati may provide you notices by email, regular mail, or postings on our Services. Except as provided for in Section 16, you agree to provide notices to Ronati by emailing email@example.com.
17.6 Force Majeure.. Neither Party is liable for delay or default hereunder if caused by conditions beyond its reasonable control, including natural disasters, acts of God, hacker attacks, acts of terror or war, riots, actions or decrees of governmental bodies, changes in applicable laws, or communication or power failures.
17.7 Assignment.. Neither the rights nor the obligations arising under the Terms are assignable or transferable by either Party without the other Party’s prior written consent, which shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed, and any attempted assignment or transfer shall be void and without effect. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Ronati may assign this agreement (including all subscriptions and purchase orders) without the consent of the other Party to a successor in connection with a merger, acquisition, corporate reorganization, or sale of all or substantially all of its assets in aggregate or related to your Services. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement shall bind and inure to the benefit of the Parties, their respective successors, and permitted assigns.
