Terms of Access
Last revised February 7th, 2018
Thank you for visiting this Portal about Frudia. The Portal is operated by Hesed USA, LLC.
READ THESE TERMS CAREFULLY. THEY INCLUDE VARIOUS LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS, A CLAUSE THAT GOVERNS THE VENUE OF DISPUTES, AND OBLIGATIONS TO COMPLY WITH APPLICABLE LAWS AND REGULATIONS.
Our role and some definitions.
The Hesed Portal makes it easier for Users to order products from Welcos Company Limited, a company organized under the laws of Korea (“Frudia”) for delivery in the continental USA only. All of Hesed’s portal, websites, and mobile applications are hereinafter collectively referred to as the “Portal”. Hesed acts as limited agent of Frudia through the Portal only and the benefit of these Terms extends also to Frudia.
The Portal and your use of the Portal doesn’t change anything about your relationship with other Users, your physician(s), pharmacist, or any other health provider(s), which relationships remain at all times governed by the terms you have agreed separately with each of them. Hesed doesn’t provide advice. User is ultimately responsible for its own choices. Hesed does not itself manufacture, pack, sell, deliver, or invoice products to User. You understand that, upon making an authorized order through the Portal, Frudia is your vendor in that sale, not Hesed who only acts as limited agent.
Hesed does not act as your agent or on your behalf.
Hesed reserves the right, at its entire discretion, to modify the Portal or to modify these Terms at any time. If we modify these Terms, we will post the modification on our Portal. We will also update the “Last Revised” date at the top of these Terms. By continuing to access or use our Portal after we have posted a modification or have provided you with notice of a modification, you are indicating that you agree to be bound by the modified Terms. If the modified Terms are not acceptable to you, your sole recourse is to stop using and accessing the Portal.
Contact. If you have any questions for us concerning this Agreement, the Hesed Portal generally, or if you notice Digital Millennium Act compliance issues, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. All unauthorized, unsolicited, and/or commercial contacts from other Users outside the Hesed Portal are to be reported immediately at the same email address.
If you send us text messages, or have us send you one, don’t forget that your carrier might charge you for that.
Age Requirement. The Portal is intended for use by individuals 18 years of age or older. If you are under 18, you may use this Portal only with involvement of a parent or guardian.
Hesed Account. You may be required to register an account prior to accessing certain services or areas of the Portal. With respect to any such registration, we may refuse to grant to you the User name you request. Your user name and password are for your personal use only. You are responsible at all times for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for restricting access to your computer, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password. In addition to other rights available to Hesed, Hesed reserves the right to terminate your account, refuse service to you, or cancel orders, at Hesed’s option and at its discretion.
Upon your initial request to access the Portal, we will issue you certain identifying information (such as an account name or number and a password) based on the identifying information that you will provide us (such as your email address) (all together “Hesed Credentials”). You understand and agree that all Hesed Credentials are stored with our providers and that such providers may at their discretion and from time to time use affiliates and/or various third party providers to store your Hesed Credentials.
Hesed will request that its providers use reasonable efforts to keep your Hesed Credentials and Payment Credentials secure.
Payment Credentials. You must obtain your payment credentials (“Payment Credentials”) directly through the API of your electronic payment service provider linked on the Portal, with whom you will open your own account and must abide by that service provider’s terms to obtain, use, secure or terminate your Payment Credentials. We do not store your Payment Credentials at Hesed itself and have requested from our providers that they do not store them beyond what is reasonably necessary for you to input your Payment Credentials into the payment platform through the API on the Portal web page. We do not have the capacity to recall or retrieve your Payment Credentials and you understand that our providers may delete any Payment Credentials you input through the Portal web page at any time.
You must have a payment method that’s valid on the Portal and pay all amounts associated with our Portal by the payment due date. If your primary payment method fails or your account is past due, you authorize us to employ all legal methods available to collect the amounts, including the engagements of collection agencies or legal counsel. In addition, you may be subject to late fees.
By entering Payment Credentials on the API of your electronic payment service provider linked on the Portal and ordering offerings, you immediately authorize Hesed and/or Frudia to trigger API payment activity and/or charge any payment methods on file in your Payment Credentials or Hesed Account for all amounts you agreed to be due pursuant to orders made, including but not limited to, purchase price, security deposits, cancellation fees, processing fees, usage fees, fines/penalties and taxes (including sales tax, GST, PST, VAT and other similar value added taxes), and you furthermore represent and warrant that you have the right to make this authorization.
In addition, Hesed will facilitate your payment of the applicable amounts on behalf of Frudia as Frudia’s limited payment collection agent, using the preferred payment method designated in your Payment Credentials or Hesed Account. You will be responsible for all of the costs relating to any citations and fines incurred during the ordering process. You are responsible for paying all purchase price to Hesed and/or Frudia when due. Applicable taxes will either be added to or be inclusive of the purchase price as applicable in the jurisdiction where Frudia will deliver the ordered products.
If your primary payment method is determined to be expired, invalid, or otherwise not able to be charged, you agree that Hesed and/or Frudia may use a secondary payment method indicated in your Payment Credentials or Hesed Account.
Hesed does not guarantee that your electronic payment service provider or its API will perform as you intend. You remain at all times responsible for payments owed to Hesed and/or Frudia pursuant to orders made.
Purpose of Sales. All sales of Frudia products thought the Portal are limited to personal use and may not, without the express prior written approval of Frudia, be made in conjunction with any resale or commercial use. We reserve the right to limit quantities to normal retail purchases.
Your viewing experience. While Hesed makes all reasonable efforts such that the Portal displays product colors as accurately as possible, your own individual experience may vary. Notably, the actual colors you see will depend on a number of factors including the monitor you use and your choice of settings on that monitor. Hesed makes no guarantee that the display of any color will be accurate.
Return Policy. If you are unsatisfied with your experience on the Portal, please contact us as indicated above. If for any reason you are not satisfied with any products you purchase on the Portal, please follow the process stated in our Return Policy.
Beauty Products Disclaimer. Your use and selection of cosmetics, fragrance and beauty products ("Products") requires that you exercise care to be certain that all directions and warnings from the manufacturer are observed and followed. You are aware of the possibility that some people may have allergic or other reactions to Products.
Frudia may offer Products from various fine producers sourced worldwide. Frudia will endeavor to provide you with product labeling information, however, Frudia may not be the manufacturer of all of the Products it sells. You are advised to read and strictly follow the label, all packaging inserts and instructions and all manufacturer directions and warnings.
For any information or advice from Frudia found on the Portal with respect to Products, whether in chat rooms, in Product descriptions, or otherwise, Frudia may rely upon advice from third-party manufacturers and from licensed beauticians. As to any Products of which Frudia is not the manufacturer, Frudia will, upon request, endeavor to identify the manufacturer of that Product and provide you with the contact information of that manufacturer.
Order Acceptance. Shipping. Receipt of order confirmation by email or otherwise does not constitute acceptance of an order by Frudia or a confirmation of an offer to sell. Such receipt also does not constitute a confirmation that the product or service is in stock or otherwise available on the price and terms published on the Portal or in any catalog or other advertisement. Frudia reserves the right, without prior notification, to limit the order quantity on any product to any customer for any reason, including limitations on quantities available for purchase, inaccuracies or errors in product or pricing information, or problems identified as potential fraud. Frudia reserves the right to limit the quantity of items purchased per person, per household or per order for any reason; and these restrictions may apply to orders placed by the same account, the same credit card, and also to orders that use the same billing address and/or shipping address. Frudia also reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to either prohibit sales or limit quantities of sales to dealers or resellers. For purposes of this Agreement, reselling shall be defined as purchasing or intending to purchase any item from Frudia for the purpose of engaging in a commercial sale of that same item with a third party. With respect to items sold by Frudia, we cannot confirm the price of an item until you order. Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items in our catalog may be mispriced. If the correct price of an item sold by Frudia is higher than our stated price, we will at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before shipping or cancel your order. If your order is canceled after your credit card (or other payment account) has been charged, we will issue a credit to your credit card (or other applicable payment account) in the amount of the charge. Pricing for items on Frudia may be different from prices available in stores or on mobile applications (pricing and availability remain subject to confirmation at checkout for mobile users). Verification of order and customer information may be required prior to the acceptance of any order. Frudia is not obligated to fulfill any order and may refuse any order. Alternatively, Frudia may accept the order and notify the customer of an estimated time for shipment (in which case the order shall be deemed to remain open until delivery). Charges to customer's credit card shall only be processed for collection when a shipment has been made. Any shipping and handling charges that are imposed may reflect estimated or average amounts required to cover the cost of shipping and handling and need not reflect the exact cost of the specific order. In the event of an authorized return of any goods sold from the Portal, Frudia is not obligated to include a refund of any shipping and handling charges or gift-wrap charges.
