If the correct price of an item sold by Arch17 is higher than our stated price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before shipping or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation. Other merchants may follow different policies in the event of a mispriced item.

LEGAL DISPUTES

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS AND WILL HAVE A SUBSTANTIAL IMPACT ON HOW CLAIMS YOU AND EBAY HAVE AGAINST EACH OTHER ARE RESOLVED.

Users must abide by the principle of good faith in all of their Transactions (defined below) and perform Transactions as agreed between the parties in the relevant contract (in accordance with the agreed date, place, delivery methods, payment solution, products inspection and acceptance procedures, etc), so as to maintain the market order of Arch17.com.
When using any services (including but not limited to transaction services) of Arch17.com in their Transaction, users must observe all applicable laws and regulations, these Rules for Transactions on Arch17.com (these “Rules”) and other rules published on Arch17.com from time to time (hereinafter referred to as 1.the“Relevant Rules”) and the agreement(s) applicable to the relevant service(s) on Arch17.com.

Where users conduct Transactions by means of traditional offline trade after having approached each other through Online Trade Services or via Arch17.com, any dispute arising in such Transaction must be settled by and between the buyer and the seller through their own negotiations. If the parties fail to negotiate or to reach any agreement through negotiation, either party or both parties may submit the Transaction dispute to Arch17.com for mediation. Arch17.com has the right to determine whether to accept the complaint relating to the relevant dispute. In such a dispute, the user initiating the complaint relating to a Transaction dispute and filing a claim for determination is referred to as the complainant and the other party as the respondent.

In respect of complaints relating to suspected fraudulent trades (including but not limited to the scenarios of failure by seller to deliver products after receiving payment, material breaches by seller in delivering products inconsistent with the product specifications and failure to make payment by buyer upon receiving products), Arch17.com reserves the right to extend or to not impose a limit on the complaints period and mediation period.

Sellers have the obligation of resolving after-sales problems in accordance with its after-sales service commitment to buyers and at the same time abiding by relevant laws, regulations and/or the relevant rules on Arch17.com. When a user fails to perform its commitment as promised to the other party, causing the parties to fail in achieving the relevant fundamental commercial objectives, Arch17.com reserves the right to extend or not to place a limit on the complaints period.

In respect of a dispute that Arch17.com has decided to accept, Arch17.com will ascertain the relevant facts in accordance with the Relevant Rules. The parties have an obligation to actively provide relevant factual evidence to substantiate their claim, and Arch17.com has the right to use their independent judgment based on the collected materials and make a decision accordingly. If it is determined that a party has committed any breach or violation, Arch17.com will impose penalties in accordance with the relevant service agreement and the Relevant Rules.
As Arch17.com is not a professional dispute resolution institution and has a limited capacity to identify evidence and settle disputes, Arch17.com does not warrant that the results of dispute settlement will meet the expectations of the buyer and the seller, nor will it be liable in any way for the results of dispute settlement. In case the buyer and the seller still cannot reach an agreement on a relevant dispute after Arch17.com steps in to mediate, the buyer and the seller must settle the dispute through litigation, arbitration or other means. In addition, the settlement by Arch17.com does not exempt the responsible party from any punishment under applicable laws and regulations.

We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.

APPLICABLE LAW By using any Arch17 Service, you agree that the People’s Republic of China Law, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Terms of Use and any dispute of any sort that might arise between you and Arch17.

We reserve the right to make changes to our site, policies, Service Terms, and these Terms of Use at any time. If any of these conditions shall be deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that condition shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining condition.
If there is any conflict between the English version and another language version of this Agreement, the English version shall prevail.
