You represent and warrant that all Retailer Product Content you provide is truthful and accurate and is in compliance with all Product Policies and that you will not use Retailer Product Content to redirect Customers and/or end users of the Inside & Out Motherhood sites to any other sales channels. You hereby grant Inside & Out Motherhood Inc and its affiliates, and its service providers and marketing partners, a non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, sub-licensable, irrevocable right and license (a) to publish, reproduce, display, distribute, transmit and otherwise use Retailer’s name, trademarks, service marks, and logos (“Retailer Marks”), and (b) to publish and perform, reproduce, distribute, transmit, display, modify, create derivative works of, and otherwise use and commercially exploit all Retailer Product Content, in each case in connection with the Partum Marketplace (including without limitation advertising, marketing and promoting the Products, other products, or the Marketplace Program through the Partum site, third party websites, e-mail, social media or any other medium).
(a) Retailer Product Content. In order for Vendor to start listing Products on the Site, Inside & Out Motherhood Inc will open on Vendor’s behalf a Vendor marketplace account on the Vendor Portal. Within (3) three weeks from the opening of the account, Vendor will be required to upload all necessary Retailer Product Content and prepare the Vendor storefront to go live on the Partum Site. If Vendor fails to take any such actions within the aforementioned period, Inside & Out Motherhood Inc may suspend the account.
(c) Inventory/Stock. You will use commercially reasonable efforts to maintain inventory for those Products you have listed on the Partum site. If an item is out of stock, you must update your product listing to prevent customers from unknowingly purchasing an item that is unavailable or requires an unreasonably longer wait time until delivery.
(a) Commission Fees. Inside & Out Motherhood Inc will earn a commission fee on the sale of Products only; commission will not be charged on shipping and tax charges. Inside & Out Motherhood Inc will take a 13% commission, as well as an additional $1 per transaction (the “Commission Fee”).

(b) Payment. At Inside & Out Motherhood Inc’s option, all payments to your bank account will be remitted through an Automated Clearing House (ACH) system. If Inside & Out Motherhood concludes that your actions and/or performance in connection with this Agreement may result in customer disputes, chargebacks or other claims, then Inside & Out Motherhood may, in its sole discretion, delay initiating any remittances and withhold any payments to be made or that are otherwise due to you under this Agreement for the shorter of: (i) a period of 90 days following the initial date of suspension of your account; or (ii) completion of any investigation(s) regarding your actions and/or performance in connection with this Agreement. As a security measure, Inside & Out Motherhood may in its sole discretion, but is not required to, impose transaction limits on you or some or all Customers relating to the value of any transaction or disbursement, the cumulative value of all transactions or disbursements during a period of time, or the number of transactions per day or other period of time.
(a) Orders. Vendor will be the merchant of record. Customers purchasing Products through the Site will place orders using the Inside & Out Motherhood Inc checkout system and Inside & Out Motherhood will collect all proceeds from such transactions, including shipping costs and applicable taxes based on shipment options and tax designations provided by Vendor to Inside & Out Motherhood. The Customer is the purchaser of record. Inside & Out Motherhood will electronically transmit to Vendor the order information (e.g. Customer full name, shipping address, and/or an email address) (“Transaction Information”) that Inside & Out Motherhood determines Vendor needs to fulfill each order, including without limitation, shipping Product(s) to Customers and providing Customer Service. After a Customer orders a Product on the Partum site, Inside & Out Motherhood will send an automated email message to each Customer confirming receipt of an order. Vendor will provide Inside & Out Motherhood with Vendor’s Customer service contact information, which shall include, without limitation, an email address and phone number at which Customer inquiries may be directed, which Partum may include in such confirmation email and/or on the Site.
(c) Shipping Options. You are responsible for properly specifying shipping options for all Products that you offer for sale on the Partum Marketplace. You will provide, in a clear and identifiable manner, Customers with the shipping, handling and any other charges for each Product. You will not enable shipping for any Product in any region where the sale of such product violates any Product Policy or applicable Law. You will use reasonable best efforts to offer competitive shipping options and charges to the Customer in connection with the sale of Products on the Partum site.
(d) Shipping Process. You will be responsible for shipping all Products purchased by Customers in a timely manner. Products must be shipped within 2-5 days of an order being placed. You will be responsible for all shipping charges and for any costs or charges related to shipping-related problems, including without limitation, damaged or lost Products, late shipments or misdelivery. If you cannot meet the On-Time Ship Standard for any Product, you will provide Customers with email notification of such delay and include all information that may be requested by Inside & Out Motherhood in such notification. You will be solely liable for all costs related to any duplicate or inaccurate shipments based upon your retransmission of orders through Partum Marketplace. You may only send a shipment confirmation notice to customers following shipment of an order. Packaging for Products should not contain any Vendor marketing materials that are not included as standard marketing materials with all of your Product shipments, and emails sent by you to Customers in connection with an order will not contain any marketing materials or links to any Retailer or third party website, except for links to shipping websites that permit the Customer to track shipment of their order.
(e) Risk of Fraud or Loss. Please note that, though Inside & Out Motherhood will bear the risk of credit card fraud occurring in connection with an Order, you will bear all other risk of fraud or loss and all costs related thereto. For all credit card chargebacks for which you bear the risk, Inside & Out Motherhood Inc will offset such chargeback amounts against amounts otherwise owed to you, or send you an invoice for the chargeback amount; provided that you hereby covenant and agree to pay such invoice within 30 days of receipt thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Inside & Out Motherhood Inc will not bear the risk of credit card fraud in connection with any Product that is not shipped by you to the shipping address specified in the Transaction Information provided by Inside & Out Motherhood Inc, and you will be responsible for all costs related to such credit card fraud under such circumstances.

You will stop and/or cancel any order (which is any item(s) a customer purchases on the Partum marketplace) if so requested by Inside & Out Motherhood; provided, however, that if you have transferred Products to a shipper, you will use commercially reasonable efforts to stop and or cancel delivery by the shipper. Your return and refund policies for Products sold through the Partum Marketplace will be no less favorable to Customers than your most favorable policies offered on your website (“Retailer Site”) for such Products, including, for avoidance of doubt, any promotional and temporary offers related to such Products. You will notify Inside & Out Motherhood Inc of any material changes to your customer return, refund or price adjustment policies at least 5 days prior to your implementation of such changes.
(b) Refunds. You will be responsible for all non-cash refunds (e.g., store credit, gift cards and exchanges) owed to Customers. If you determine a Customer is due a cash refund (e.g., via a refund to the Customer’s credit card, debit card or other form of original payment) you will notify Inside & Out Motherhood Inc and include any other related information as may be requested by Inside & Out Motherhood Inc. For cash refunds Inside & Out Motherhood will provide the refund to the Customer via the Customer’s original payment method (e.g., credit or debit card) if possible and Inside & Out Motherhood will refund to you the amount of the Commission Fee attributable to the amount of the Customer refund (excluding any refunded taxes); provided that Inside & Out Motherhood will have no liability for refunds offered by you in excess of the purchase price. If you provide Customer with a cash or non-cash refund directly, Inside & Out Motherhood will retain the full amount of the Commission Fee attributable to such Customer refund. If Inside & Out Motherhood makes a cash refund to a Customer for a Product returned to you, Inside & Out Motherhood, in its sole discretion, will obtain a refund of the payment received by you for such returned Products either (i) via offset of any amounts payable by Inside & Out Motherhood to you or (ii) by sending you an invoice for the such amount; provided that you hereby covenant and agree to pay such invoice within 30 days of receipt thereof.

You will maintain parity between the Products you offer through any other online sales channel and the Products offered on the Partum site by ensuring that at all times: (a) except for in connection with Excluded Offers (as defined below), the purchase price and every other term of offer and/or sale of the Products (including associated shipping and handling charges and options, any “low price” guarantee, rebate or discount, any free or discounted products or other benefit available as a result of purchasing one or more other products, and terms of applicable return and refund policies) is at least as favorable to Partum Customers as the most favorable terms upon which a product is offered and/or sold via any other online sales channel; (b) customer service for the Products is at least as responsive and available and offers at least the same level of support as the most favorable customer service offered in connection with the Retailer Site; and (c) the Vendor Product Content provided by you for the Partum site (i) is at least the same level of quality as the highest quality information displayed or used on the Vendor Site or any other online sales channel for Vendor’s Products and (ii) provides users of the Partum site with at least as much product information, images and other content as the information provided on the Vendor Site or any other online sales channel for Vendor’s Products. Promptly upon the Vendor having actual knowledge, or when the Vendor should reasonably have had knowledge, of any non-compliance or violation of sub-clause (a) above, you will promptly notify Inside & Out Motherhood and compensate adversely affected Customers by making appropriate refunds to such Customers in accordance with the procedures set forth in Section 7 for providing customers with cash refunds.
(b) Special Offers and Promotions. If you make any public promotions generally available to all users of the Vendor Site (“Public Promotions”) and Inside & Out Motherhood cannot support such Public Promotion, then you will provide an equivalent offer or promotion to Partum Customers to the extent possible. You will work in good faith with Inside & Out Motherhood to maximize the number of Vendor offers and promotions (including equivalent offers and promotions) made available to Partum Customers. Inside & Out Motherhood may choose, in its sole discretion, not to permit certain special offers or promotions offered by you on the Inside & Out Motherhood site (e.g., where Inside & Out Motherhood cannot support the special offer or promotion) and may request that you remove any such special offers or promotions. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you will not be required to make available to Partum Customers (i) private promotions offered only to all or a subset of your existing customers by e-mail or regular mail; (ii) Public Promotions that Inside & Out Motherhood has indicated in writing that it cannot support and an equivalent offer or promotion cannot be provided; (iii) non-product specific offers such as “low price” guarantees, global and/or category specific coupons that the customer must take action to redeem; (iv) offers which are either not advertised as redeemed at or otherwise not redeemable at the point of sale, such as, without limitation, mail-in rebates and manufacturer incentives; or (v) incentives provided in connection with any loyalty program (collectively, “Excluded Offers”); provided that, if Inside & Out Motherhood is able to support any Excluded Offer at any time in which Vendor has Products that are listed on the Inside & Out Motherhood site and subject to an Excluded Offer through the Vendor Site, and desires to do so, you will make such special offer or promotion available to Partum’s site and/or Customers.
(a) Obligations. You will be responsible for all customer service, as defined by issues, questions and/or concerns relating to the product, just like if you were selling the product on your website, except for issues related to payment. In performing such customer service, you shall at all times represent yourself as a separate entity from Inside & Out Motherhood.
