7.4 Once the Vendor has fulfilled the purchase by delivering the goods or performing the service (the “ Fulfilment ”) the Vendor must notify TREDO of Fulfilment within a day of the goods shipped or the service performed (the date of such notification being the“ Notification Date ”). As part of the Fulfilment notification, the Vendor shall be obliged to provide TREDO with evidence of the Fulfilment in a form and substance satisfactory to TREDO (such as a delivery tracking ID) unless otherwise agreed by TREDO in writing. On the Notification Date in relation to a Purchase, TREDO shall be obliged to acquire the Vendor’s claim against the Retailer resulting from the Purchase (the “ Claim ”) subject to the terms and conditions set out in their Agreement. Failure to provide a valid tracking ID will result in the Vendor being held at fault in case of any disputes arising thereafter regarding shipment of the goods including but not limited to loss &/or damage of goods.

The Vendor shall immediately inform TREDO
inwriting if any third party asserts rights to a Claim.

Invoicing Agreement. On this date, all of the elements mentioned on the Invoice will be frozen, including the date of issue of the Invoice, which corresponds to such Date of Confirmation or to the Deadline for Complaints, and the Invoice that has been issued shall then be valid as an irrevocable order to pay.

their receipt as stolen goods, or illegally imported Products), or Products infringing third party rights, such as infringing Products.

Notably, the Vendor undertakes not to offer products to the Retailer, or make contact with the Retailer outside the Platform.
7.23 In particular, in the event TREDO becomes aware of any Member’s act or behaviour outside the Platform (i) that aims at enticing, or attempting to entice all or part of the Retailers away from the Platform, or that aims at encouraging all or part of the Retailers not to buy through the Platform, or to stop buying through the Platform; (ii) that is potentially unfair, damaging, anti-commercial, denigrating, defamatory, injurious or harmful toward TREDO, the Platform, any Member and/or any third party, or (iii) that infringes the laws and regulations applicable to TREDO in any other manner, TREDO reserves the right to terminate these ToU by notice with immediate effect.

8.1 Subject to the Merchant complying with the terms of their Agreement, TREDO will bear the risk that the Retailer fails to settle the Claim when it falls due.
8.2 Notwithstanding 5.1, TREDO has the right to return Claims to the Vendor, and thereby has the right to be refunded for the value of the Claim in the following situations:

8.2.2 The Retailer refuses to settle the Claim due to a defect in the goods or services purchased, or a failure of the Vendor to fulfil their obligations in an appropriate manner.
8.2.3 The Retailer has the right to set off on account of a counterclaim against the Vendor, or has the right to discounts or other deductions.
8.2.4 The Vendor has delivered the goods or services even though, prior to delivery, TREDO has informed the Vendor that there is a suspicion of fraud, for example, by notifying the Vendor that the order is undergoing a manual fraud review.
8.2.5 The Vendor has delivered the goods or services even though, prior to delivery:
a) The Vendor was aware that the Retailer was Insolvent; or
b) The Vendor was aware that the Retailer was unlikely to be able
to pay its debts when they fall due, for example because, in the last 3
● The Retailer admitted cashflow difficulties to the Vendor, or
● a cheque from the Retailer had been rejected by their bank due to lack of funds, or
● Insolvency proceedings had been commenced against the Retailer
c) The Retailer had made another purchase from the Vendor, using a payment method other than TREDO Deferred Payment, for which payment was overdue at the date of delivery (in whole or in part) by more than 45 days.
Clause 8.2.5 a) and b) shall not apply to any circumstances which the Vendor was not aware of prior to delivery.
Clause 8.2.5 c) shall not apply to any prior overdue purchases which were completed using TREDO Deferred Payment and which TREDO therefore already has knowledge of.
8.2.6 The Vendor delivers the goods to an address other than the one Accepted and Authorised by TREDO at the time of the respective Purchase or thereafter.
8.2.7 The Vendor has not complied with TREDO’s from-time-to-time applicable Vendor Protection Programme (see schedule 1 Below)
8.2.8 The Retailer may be reasonably considered to share a financial interest with the Vendor, including but not limited to, a company affiliated with the Vendor, owners or employees of the Vendor or their affiliated companies.
8.2.9 The Claim concerns goods or services which provide the Retailer directly with forms of cash such as the provision of currency exchange, cheques, money orders; or the Claim concerns the provision of vouchers which are redeemable for cash, or which are redeemable without the Retailer physically receiving the vouchers.
8.2.10 The Vendor has agreed payment terms with the Retailer which deviate from those specified by TREDO under the Deferred Payment arrangements, unless TREDO has agreed to such deviation in writing.
8.2.11 The Vendor does not notify TREDO of Fulfilment within 1 Working Day of the actual shipment of the goods.
8.2.12 The Vendor is in breach of the terms of their Agreement, including but not limited to, a failure to inform TREDO about Order Changes as specified in Section 9 Changes to Orders.
8.2.13The Vendor is in breach of any applicable legal provisions or in violation of any third party claims, such as copyrights or trademarks, in relation to the supply of the goods or services giving rise to the Claim.
8.3 In the event that TREDO returns a claim to the Vendor, TREDO shall debit the corresponding Claim value from the account of the Vendor and it shall be set off against the next Vendor Disbursement due, or against subsequent Vendor Disbursements. If, within 30 calendar days, the set-off against Vendor Disbursements is not possible in full or in part, TREDO shall issue an invoice to the Vendor for the outstanding balance, which the Vendor shall be obliged to settle within seven calendar days.
9 CHANGES OF ORDERS
9.1 All order amendments, changes and cancellations in the order or order value has to be explicitly agreed between all parties with prior and reasonable notice to all parties. Any such changes will require TREDO’s authorisation and can only be made on or through the TREDO platform. TREDO at it’s sole discretion can refuse changes to existing orders.
9.2 If the Order Change amounts to a change in delivery address; an increase in the order value; or the inclusion of new items in the order which were not previously included, then the Vendor must seek TREDO’s agreement that the Purchase is still eligible for Deferred Payment. Failure to do so may result in TREDO refusing to purchase the Claim or exercising the right to return the Claim to the Vendor as outlined in Section 8.
9.3 Where an Order Change reduces the value of a Claim, for example because of a refund or cancellation, then TREDO will reflect this by reducing the amount that is subsequently charged to the Retailer, and reducing the amount that is paid to the Vendor. If the Vendor has already been paid in relation to the Claim, then TREDO will recover the change in the value from the Vendor as described in Clause 8.3.
9.4 In certain circumstances following an Order Change, TREDO may already have collected sufficient payments from the Retailer that the Order Change requires funds to be returned to the Retailer. In this case TREDO will make the appropriate refund to the Retailer. If TREDO has already settled the Claim from the Vendor, then TREDO may, at its sole discretion, require the Vendor to repay the portion of the Claim due to be refunded to the Retailer prior to making the refund.
10 COMMISSION PAYABLE TO TREDO
10.1 As a counterpart to the Service supplied, the Vendor undertakes to pay TREDO a commission, which rate excl. tax shall have been agreed beforehand between TREDO and the Vendor (see schedule 1). Their rate shall depend on the amount excluding tax (incl. delivery costs) of the price of each order. The amount of their commission excludes taxes and shall be increased by any applicable taxes, including the value added tax (VAT) at the prevailing rate on the billing date. The
commission shall be billed for any order placed via the Platform.
10.2 The commission is due as from the issuing of the Invoice on behalf of the Vendor, and the commission the commission shall be deducted from the amount paid to the Vendor by TREDO in relation to the Claim. The commission is in no way
10.3 TREDO reserves the right, without indemnity, and with at least thirty (30) days prior notice, to modify the commission defined in article 10.1 of these ToU. In case of a disagreement, the Member may terminate these ToU on the effective date of the modification(s) in issue.
10.4 Brand Commission Terms; TREDO’s commission terms for its partners: the full initial onboarding service is free to the first batch of vendors when they sign up, thereafter all products description, inventory and pricing is managed by the brand.
TREDO charges a commission rate of 15%.
10.5 Additional Services –
10.5.1 Retailer Exclusivity of your brand ; TREDO wants to help Vendors maintain their exclusivity to retailers & to help brands limit where their products are sold, out of respect to existing stockists. If a brand decides to opt-out of the exclusivity program, retailers may find their products in other nearby retail locations.
10.5.2 How it works: Vendors are automatically enrolled in the Exclusivity program unless they request to opt-out. Once set, the first retailer to order from the Vendor will have a 180-day exclusivity for the postcode where their shop is located. For example, if a retailer just placed an order with an Exclusivity protected brand, and another retailer in the same postcode tries to place an order with that brand, they will receive the Exclusivity message shown below. Their message indicates that they are blocked from ordering. After 180 days, if the existing retailer does not reorder from the brand, they give up their Exclusivity protection and another retailer will then be able to place an order. Please note: Exclusivity programme only applies to orders placed on TREDO. We cannot guarantee exclusivity in Postcodes beyond purchases placed on our site. (Please see section
below regarding existing distribution channels) “Oh dear, seems like another retailer from your area has purchased this brand. We offer an exclusivity programme to ensure that our retailers can stock unique products that do not overlap with their neighbours for 180 days from point of
purchase, please try their brand again at a later date.”
10.6 Existing distribution channels: Blocking off Regions or postcodes
10.6.1 Ring-fencing existing sales territories ; TREDO are well aware many Vendors already work with either employed or self-employed sales teams. With this in mind if TREDO is given a list of excluded counties we can;
10.6.2 Option A: block off regions where Vendors sales reps are located so that Vendors don’t receive orders from these areas. It is the Vendors duty to contact TREDO using the admin panel with the counties they would like to block and TREDO will ensure (within reasonable limits) that the Vendors’ products is not available to purchase through TREDO for retailers located in those regions.
10.6.3 Option B: Vendors can invite their existing stockists and sales teams onto TREDO and where all orders from their existing stockists can be placed with ease and all sales managed in one place. TREDO will not charge any commission to the vendors on this service unless explicitly agreed
10.6.4 Keeping transactions on TREDO: We understand that many of our Vendors have existing stockists for which they may or may not wish to bring into the TREDO community. However, we do expect that stockist relationships brought to Vendors by TREDO will continue to be conducted on the platform (first orders and subsequent reorders). We work very hard to bring you new retailers and hope that we are providing Vendors a valuable service in this manner. To maintain a level of respect and professionalism with all parties in the TREDO community, we may suspend accounts flagged for abuse of our fee structure, billing process, or policies in any way.

16. LICENSE ON THE CONTENTS
16.1 Each Member undertakes to publish Content on the Platform in compliance with these ToU and with any legal and/regulatory provisions in force.
16.2 In publishing a Content through the Platform, the Member hereby grants to:
16.3 TREDO, a free, non-exclusive, assignable, transferable, sub-licensable, worldwide license, for the whole duration of these ToU, so as to use, reproduce, represent, display, format, publish, and disseminate the Content in the context of the making available of the Platform and the Service, and to carry out any other act or activity in relation with such display, reproduction, representation, formatting, use, publication and/or dissemination, that is necessary or useful in the context of the provision of the Platform and the Service, on any other media (notably on any tangible or digital medium, in any press or financial release or publication, presentation material, promotional and/or advertising material, website), by any means, without restriction as to the number of copies, for internal, storage, advertising, promotional, marketing, communication, public relations purposes and for the purposes of implementing any partnerships or sponsorships with TREDO’s partners. The Member acknowledges that no use of its Content, which was made by TREDO prior to the Member’s deregistration, the deletion or closure of the Member’s account, or the termination of these ToU, may be challenged by the Member;
16.4 TREDO, a free, non-exclusive, assignable, transferable, sub-licensable, worldwide license, for the whole duration of the intellectual property rights, to use, reproduce and display the Contents in the aim of aggregating them, compiling them, anonymising them and/or using them in any other form or format that does not making it possible to attribute them to, or associate them with, the Member, for statistical, research, analysis purposes and for the purposes of improving the Platform and/or the Service;
16.5 Any User, directly, a free, non-exclusive, personal, non-transferable, non-sub-licensable, worldwide license, for the whole duration of the Member’s membership, to reproduce and represent the Content through the Service, for personal and/or professional purposes (depending on whether the User is a Member or not).
16.6 The Member acknowledges that its Content may be viewed on the Platform by any User who can access the Products.
16.7 The Member warrants that it is the exclusive owner, for the duration of the rights granted to TREDO and the Users, and for the whole world, of all of the rights necessary to exploit its Contents as provided herein, or that it holds the required rights to grant the licence described herein.
16.8 In their respect, the Member shall indemnify TREDO, on first demand, with respect to any claim or action that may be taken or brought, on any account whatsoever, on the occasion of the exercise of the rights granted hereby to TREDO and/or the Users, by any person who would consider having any rights to claim in all or part of the Contents published by the Member and/or in their use by TREDO and/or the Users. The Member accepts to indemnify TREDO in the event a third party would make such a claim or take such an action against TREDO, and to bear any consequences, including financial consequences, that may result therefrom.
16.9 The Member is and remains solely liable for the Contents they publish or disseminate through the Platform, and for their compliance with applicable laws and regulations. TREDO shall in no way be held liable for these Contents. In their respect, the Member is informed that their Contents are neither verified nor controlled by TREDO prior to their online publication. TREDO’s part shall be limited to hosting these Contents through the Platform and the Service.
16.10 TREDO reserves the right, without prior notice nor indemnity, to modify or delete any Content that would be in breach of any provision of these ToU, to close or to delete the Member’s account, and to terminate these ToU with immediate effect, in the conditions set out in article 18.2.
17 PROVEN FRAUD
17.1 In the case of proven fraud (fraudulent copy, handling of stolen property, illegal import, etc.), or upon request, TREDO reserves the right to disclose all necessary information, including personal information, to the competent authorities in charge of punishing these frauds and offences, notwithstanding any other recourse.
18.1 The right of access to the Platform, the Service, and all rights and obligations deriving from these ToU may be terminated at any time by the Member or by TREDO, without a specific reason, by e-mail or through the Platform. Any termination in accordance with the terms of their article 16.1 will be effective only on the date of full payment of all sums owed by the Member in accordance with the terms of these ToU.
18.2 Without prejudice to any other remedies, TREDO reserves the right to terminate the right of access to the Platform, the Service, and all rights and obligations deriving from these ToU as of right, with immediate effect, in the following situations, such situations being described as serious breaches:
18.2.1 in case of a breach of the articles 2.2, 5, 7, 11, 15, and 16;
18.3 if TREDO is unable to verify or authenticate the information given by the Member, and the Member fails to follow up on TREDO’s requests for verification and/or authentication;
18. 4 if the Member’s acts are likely to result in TREDO, the Member, any other User, or any TREDO partner being held liable;
18.5 in case the Member’s behaviour is in breach of the service level agreement relating to the Platform, is potentially harmful for, detrimental to, and/or unfair for the Platform, TREDO and/or any Member.
18.6 Without prejudice to article 18.2, in the event a Party is in breach of any one of its obligations under the ToU, the other Party may terminate the right of access to the Platform, the Service, and all rights and obligations deriving from these ToU immediately and as of right, following a formal notice to remedy the relevant breach that remained unsuccessful for one (1) month.
18.7 In the event of termination in accordance with the terms of their article, the Member’s account will be closed automatically, the Member’s access to the Platform will be disabled, and the Member will no longer have access to the Service, all as from the effective date of termination as provided for in their article 18. Consequently, the Vendor’s Products shall no longer be accessible on the Platform, and the Vendor’s account will be disabled and be removed from the Platform search results, all as from the effective date of termination. Finally, any sum that is owed by the Member shall become immediately due and payable. The termination will have no effect on the orders for Products that are in progress, such orders remaining subject to the terms of these ToU.
18.8 In the event of termination for whatever reason, it is expressly agreed by the Parties that any provisions, by essence, are intended to survive the termination of these ToU, whatever the reason for such termination, will remain in force for the duration that is applicable to such provisions. These provisions include but are not limited to the Vendor’s obligation towards product warranty, after sales service etc.
18.9 At a Member’s request until the effective date of termination, the Contents may be exported in a format and on financial terms to be agreed, as appropriate, between the Parties. After the effective date of termination, TREDO reserves the right to delete the Contents at any time, subject to the license granted on the Contents in accordance with article 16.
19.1 The Parties shall be responsible for any harmful consequences that may result for the performance or non-performance of the obligations that are incumbent upon them hereunder. Each Party expressly agrees that he may only be held liable for the direct damages resulting from a non-performance of these ToU that is attributable to him.
19.2 TREDO only has a ‘best efforts’ obligation as regards the making available of the Platform and the Service. Besides, TREDO, in its capacity as the host of Contents made available online by Members, accepts no liability whatsoever for the Contents published by the Members through the Platform, as TREDO carries out no prior control of these Contents.
19.3 Save if a proven fault can be attributable to TREDO, TREDO shall not be held liable for any damage potentially suffered by a User because of the use, or the impossibility to use, all or part of the Platform. TREDO shall not be liable either for any consequences which would have been caused by the internet network or by the User’s information system, such as a possible malfunctioning, failure or breakdown, delay, or interruption of access to the electronic communications network, including Internet.
19.4 Finally, TREDO’s liability won’t be incurred in the event the non-performance or late performance of any one of its obligations would be attributable to an event or circumstance that is beyond TREDO’s control, and that could not have reasonably been foreseen at the time when these ToU were accepted, and which effects could not be avoided using appropriate measures (force majeure).
19.5 In any event, except applicable legal provisions, TREDO’s liability to the Vendor in the event of a breach of any one of TREDO’s obligations hereunder, for all causes and whatever the circumstances, shall not exceed the higher of:
19.5.1 the aggregate amount of commissions actually paid by the Member to TREDO during the twelve (12) months preceding the event which resulted in the damage; or
19.5.2 five hundred (500) pounds incl. tax.
19.6 TREDO will in no case be held liable for indirect damage suffered by the User, nor for any lost profit, loss of turnover, loss of anticipated savings, loss of goodwill, loss of customers, damage to reputation, or loss of data.
19.7 Each User is invited to notify TREDO in the event of a breach of these ToU, notably in the event their User would note that Products not complying with the terms of these ToU are offered for sale. The User is invited to notify TREDO by e-mail to the following address: support@TREDO.co.uk
19.8 The Vendor shall also be solely responsible for the performance of the sales contracts entered into with Retailers through the Platform, as long as TREDO’s liability for the non-performance or poor performance of the sales contract is not proven by the Vendor. Consequently, the Vendor undertakes to indemnify TREDO and to hold TREDO harmless with respect to any liability, claim, suit, or proceedings brought against TREDO by a User, a Member, a Retailer or a third party, or by any administrative authority, in connection with the non-conformity of a Product to applicable regulations, with the non-compliance with economic regulations, the use of the Products, or the performance of the sales contract between the Vendor and any Retailer. The Vendor therefore undertakes that they will be directly responsible for, or that he will reimburse TREDO upon demand for, the payment of any sums, including any sums awarded in court, court costs, lawyers’ fees, and any other amounts that would be due in their respect
19.9 The Vendor undertakes to take public and professional liability insurance with an insurance company known to be solvent, to cover the liability the Vendor may incur, on any legal basis whatsoever, for the damages of any kind the Vendor may cause in the context of the performance of these ToU. The Vendor will provide TREDO, upon request, with supporting evidence of the taking of such insurance.
20.1 The Parties acknowledge that TREDO’s disclosure of the recordings on TREDO’s servers, which relate to the use of the Platform, including notably the Members’ nominative access codes, connection logs, and any documents and e-mails exchanged via the Platform or in the context of these ToU and stored on TREDO’s servers, shall be considered proof between the Parties.
21.1 No Party may transfer, assign, or otherwise dispose of, all or part of its rights or obligations, or the ToU, with or without consideration, save with the other Party’s prior written consent.
21.2 As an exception to the foregoing, TREDO may freely transfer, assign, or otherwise dispose of all or part of its rights or obligations or the ToU, as part of a restructuring (including any merger, absorption, transfer or contribution of all or part of its assets, direct or indirect change of control).
22. GENERAL PROVISIONS
22.1 TREDO shall be entitled to sub-contract all or part of its obligations to any third-party subcontractor of its choosing. TREDO remains liable for these subcontractors’ actions and omissions. It is expressly agreed by the Parties that TREDO’s financing partner, is a provider that is independent from TREDO and that does not act as a subcontractor of TREDO. Therefore, TREDO shall not be held liable to the Member for the actions or omissions of that financing partner. Our financing provider, , has purchased a credit insurance policy with Lloyd's of London to insure itself against the risk of non-payment by Retailers making purchases using Deferred Payment.
22.2 Unless expressly provided otherwise, these ToU shall not be interpreted as making a Party the attorney, agent, or representative of the other Party, nor as constituting memorandum and articles of association. The Parties’ willingness to be part of a company, as well as any joint and several liability toward third parties or between the Parties are specifically excluded. So, each Party undertakes to refrain from doing anything that may mislead a third party in their respect, and to make no commitment, nor provide any guarantee, on behalf of the other Party, unless expressly provided otherwise in their contract.
22.3 In case of difficulties of interpretation between any one of the headings given to the articles of these ToU and any one of the provisions of these ToU, the headings will be declared non-existing.
22.4 For the performance of all of the terms hereof and for any consequences hereof, the Parties choose their respective registered addresses as their domicile. Any change of the address chosen by a Party for the aforementioned purposes will be enforceable against the other Party only if such change of address is notified to that other Party by e-mail or through the Platform (if the option is available).
22.5 Any formal notice or notice relating to the enforcement of these ToU will be regarded as being validly given only if it was sent to the domicile of the Party by registered letter with proof of receipt, unless expressly provided otherwise in these ToU.
22.6 In the event any provision of these ToU were found null, invalid or unenforceable by any court whatsoever in a final decision, that provision shall be deleted without their resulting in the nullity of the ToU as a whole. The other provisions of the ToU shall remain unchanged and shall continue to apply.
22.7 No forbearance, waiver or omission, regardless of the duration and number of them, in claiming/to claim the existence or a total or partial breach of any one of the provisions of these ToU shall constitute a change, a deletion of their provision, or a waiver to invoke a prior, contemporaneous or later breach of the same provision or of other provisions. Such a waiver shall be of no effect unless it is expressed in a written document signed by the person who has been duly authorised to that end.
22.8 TREDO, on the one hand, and the Member, on the other hand, are independent parties, each of which acting in its own name and on its own behalf. Unless expressly provided otherwise, these ToU create no bond of obedience, mandate, partnership, joint venture, employer/employee, principal/attorney, or franchisor/franchisee relationships between TREDO and each Member.
22.9 These ToU are drafted in English. In the event these ToU would be translated into one or several other languages, the English version shall prevail.
23 APPLICABLE LAW - JURISDICTION
23.1 These ToU shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the UK, without giving effect to its choice of law rules.
