Any User who accesses the Platform understands and acknowledges that Sustainia solely manages, and does not own or operate, the Sample Content on its Platform or the Samples offered through its Platform. Sustainia from time to time acts as an intermediary between Users and Manufacturers, and serves as an agent to supply Sample Content and Samples to Users on behalf of Manufacturers. Both Users and Manufacturers agree that Sustainia is not a party to any contracts created by and between a User and a Manufacturer. Occasionally Sustainia offers a service that helps connect Users and Manufacturers together for samples of sustainable product.
Sustainia may provide suppliers of sample content and samples and other material items with a referral source for lead generation, networking, and/or other professional purposes, when you request or access sample content or samples or material created or provided by that manufacturer. Sustainia disclaims all representations and warranties of any kind with respect to any manufacturer or product/material that receives you as a referral source and acts upon that data.

To provide Users with a forum in which to identify and locate Manufacturers, Sustainia cannot and does not involve itself in the agreements between Users and those Manufacturers. In addition, Sustainia does not screen any Manufacturers, and the fact that any professional appears on the Platform does not imply an endorsement of them/him/her. Accordingly, Sustainia cannot ensure the success, quality, or specifications that may be provided or stated by such Manufacturer. You, and not Sustainia, are solely responsible for assessing the integrity, honesty and trustworthiness of all Manufacturers and professionals with whom you may communicate.
All information regarding the sample content and samples listed on the platform is based on information provided to user by the manufacturer. In this respect, Sustainia cannot guarantee that the information is accurate, and does not endorse any content or samples listed, and is not responsible for any errors or omissions. You acknowledge and agree that, if you register for the service, it is your responsibility to review separately any manufacturers, and specific terms and conditions, and to request additional information from, and perform your own due diligence on, the participating manufacturers and the sample content and samples made available by them on the platform, before making a final decision to order any samples provided by Sustainia from the manufacturers.

Sustainia reserves the right to change or alter any fee that it charges Users at any time while processing any relevant order provided that, if Sustainia makes any changes to the applicable fee, Sustainia shall notify the affected parties by email, and ask for confirmation of payment of the new fee before it provides the applicable services or products. By placing an order for a fee-based service or product, the User authorizes Sustainia or a designated third-party payment processor to collect and charge amounts to the credit card on file in accordance with these Service Terms.

9. Sample Order Terms
Once a User submits an inquiry or places a sample order through the Platform, Sustainia may contact the User to discuss the details of the sample order and to send the User new or additional offers on sample orders.
Sustainia will strive for 2-3 business day shipping so that you receive the sample order within 5 Business days of the date that the order was made so long as the order was submitted by the cut-off time for shipping listed as per product; however, due to the size and/or weight of the item, or your location, this option may not always be available.
Sustainia’s fulfilment of sample orders depends upon carriers such as FedEx, and there may be instances in which disruption of air, rail or roads or disruption for other reasons that are beyond the control of Sustainia may occur. Finally, a particular material may become out of stock without notice.
If you place a sample order and the sample is not delivered to you by a carrier such as Fedex, UPS, Canada Post, or does not get to you for whatever other reason, you shall not hold Sustainia responsible.

We do not warrant that the functions performed by the service will be uninterrupted or error-free, or that the service or the servers that support it will be free from viruses or other harmful components. We do not warrant the accuracy or completeness of any content on the service, including, any samples that are provided by participating manufacturers, that the service is making available to you.
Please note that some jurisdictions may not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so some of the above exclusions may not apply to you.
Without limiting the foregoing, the service, everything on the platform and all related products and services and products are provided “As is” with no warranties whatsoever. All express, implied, and statutory warranties, including, without limitation, the warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, title, and non-infringement, are expressly disclaimed.
17. Limitation on Liabilities
To the fullest extent allowed by law, in no event shall Sustainia or its suppliers, including, without limitation, its manufacturers or its licensors have any liability to any user or visitor for any indirect, special, incidental, exemplary, punitive or consequential damages whether arising in contract, equity, negligence, intended conduct or otherwise (including breach of warranty, negligence, gross negligence, willful misconduct and strict liability in tort), including, without limitation, damages arising from delay, loss of goodwill, loss of or damage to data, lost profits, revenue or savings (actual or anticipated), or other economic loss or lost profits in connection with or ensuing from:
(I) the use or inability to use the platform or service,
(ii) any transactions conducted through or facilitated by the platform or service, including any samples realized by you through your use of the service;
(iii) any claim attributable to errors, omissions, or other inaccuracies in the platform or service, (iv) any unauthorized access to or alteration of your transmissions or data, or
(v) any other matter related to the platform or service or any Sustainia content or information provided on the platform or service, even if Sustainia has been advised of the possibility of such damages. The foregoing limitation of liability shall apply notwithstanding any failure of essential purpose or any limited remedy.
Because some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, some of the above limitations do not apply to you. If you are a resident of a jurisdiction that requires a specific statement regarding release, you hereby waive any provision in law, regulation, or code similar requiring such release. For example, California residents must, as a condition of these service terms, waive the applicability of California civil code section 1542, which states, “a general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his or her favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him or her must have materially affected his or her settlement with the debtor.” users hereby waive this section of the California civil code or any similar provision in another jurisdiction. Your ability to use the Sustainia service is contingent on your agreement with this and all other sections of these service terms.
Notwithstanding anything else set forth herein, the maximum liability of Sustainia for damages from any claim arising from your use of the platform or service shall be limited to the greater of:
(I) one hundred dollars ($100.00), and
(ii) the amount in fees that you have paid to Sustainia for any samples.
You understand and agree that you are personally responsible for your behavior in connection with the Service. You agree to indemnify, defend and hold Sustainia, its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, and other partners and employees and any suppliers, including, without limitation, any Manufacturers and third-party information or content licensors to the Service, harmless from any loss, liability, claims, demands, damages and costs (including, but not limited to direct, incidental, consequential, exemplary and indirect damages), and reasonable attorneys’ fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of
(i) use or misuse of the Platform or the Service by you or any other person using your Registration Account;
(ii) any violation or breach of these Service Terms; or
(iii) any violation of any of the rights of any other third-party.
19. Entire Agreement; Order of Precedence; Waiver; Severability
Unless otherwise specified herein, the Service Terms constitute the entire agreement between you, a User, and Sustainia with respect to the Service and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals (whether oral, written, or electronic) between you and Sustainia regarding the Service.
(i) the “Service Terms”,
(iii) the Sustainia policies and
Sustainia’s failure to enforce any right or provision in the Service Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any part of the Service Terms is held invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be deemed to be substituted with a valid, enforceable provision which most closely reflects the original intent of the parties, and the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect.
