Terms & Conditions (Egypt)
Numu is operated by Numu Market LLC (“Numu”).
Numu is an online marketplace platform and search engine (the “Platform”) that helps suppliers, producers, and traders (the “Seller(s)”) find buyers (the “Buyer(s)”) through online advertisements and other actions. It allows Sellers and Buyers (the “Users”) to sell and buy agricultural inputs and related products (the “Products”) in a variety of locations. Sellers can create an account (profile) and present their Products and Buyers can connect, search, and purchase any of these Products to be delivered to the address of their choice within accepted regions.
Numu was created to give Sellers the opportunity to promote and sell their Products online and connect with Buyers. In no case, however, does it guarantee the correctness of any listed information or transaction, the quality of the Products, a possible food spoilage, incomplete or false labeling, proper shipment or delivery of the Products as well as the legality of each transaction. The Seller is legally responsible for the assurance of the quality requirements, market, and tax provisions concerning the sale of the Products. The Buyer is responsible for requesting more information about the Seller before ordering, for checking the quantity and quality of the Products before their final receipt, as well as for requesting all the supporting tax and transport documents (receipt, invoice, shipping slip) from the Seller (if applicable). Numu shall not be liable for any damages or claims arising from any disputes between the Seller and the Buyer in connection with the transactions through the Platform and/or the use of the information provided through the Platform.
These Terms describe the rights and obligations of the Users, who may be either physical persons or legal entities, in relation to the use of the services provided by Numu (the “Services”) and in relation to the terms of sale and purchase of the Products made through it between the Users.
