MYSHOPERON™ TERMS AND CONDITIONS
MyShoperon.com is a community-driven peer-to-peer marketplace website and online service provided by MyShoperon, Inc. (“MyShoperon”, “we,”, “us” or “our”). This Terms of Service Agreement describes the terms and conditions (“Terms”) that govern your use of and participation in MyShoperon services. MyShoperon services include our website and mobile device software applications (the “MyShoperon Software”), applications for third-party web sites and services, and information, features and functionality owned, controlled, or offered by MyShoperon (collectively the “Services”). By accessing or using the Services, you acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by these Terms and to the collection and use of your information as set forth in the Privacy Notice.
These Terms apply to anyone who accesses or uses MyShoperon, regardless of whether you are a Shopper, a Chaperon (collectively “Shoperon”), or a site visitor.
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS CAREFULLY TO ENSURE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND EACH PROVISION.
MyShoperon allows a registered shopper (“Shopper”) to search for, communicate and transact directly with (“Order”) a verified and rated neighbour (“Chaperon”) who receives and holds a parcel (“Parcel”) sent by a delivery service on behalf of the Shopper. MyShoperon has the authority to accept or decline a Shopper’s Order on behalf of the Chaperon and collect payment for the Order on behalf of the Chaperon. You understand and agree that MyShoperon is not a party to any agreement entered into between a Shopper and a Chaperon, nor is MyShoperon a delivery service or agent.
We may, in our sole discretion, change, suspend, or discontinue the Services (including without limitation, the availability of any feature, database, or content) at any time. When we change a/the Term(s), we will update the last modified date at the top of this page. Such changes will be effective when the revised Term(s) is posted to our Website. If there are material changes to these Terms, we will notify you either by prominently posting a notice of such changes prior to implementing the change or by directly sending you a notification. You should check these Terms regularly for any revisions, and especially before your use of the Services. Your continued use of the Services after any such change constitutes your acceptance of the new Terms. If you do not agree to any of these Terms or any future Terms of Service, do not use or access or continue to access the Services.
In order to access and use the Services or register a MyShoperon Account, you must be an individual at least 18 years old. The Services are no longer available to any Shoperon previously removed from the Services by MyShoperon, unless MyShoperon has given you written notice of reinstatement.
For transparency and fraud prevention purposes, and as permitted by applicable laws, we may, but have no obligation to (i) ask you to provide a form of government identification or other information to help verify the your identity or background, (ii) screen you against third party databases or other sources, and (iii) where we have sufficient information to identify you, obtain reports from public records of criminal convictions or sex offender registrations or an equivalent version of background or registered sex offender checks in your local jurisdiction (if available).
2. MyShoperon Accounts
Parts of our Services require that you register a user account (“Account”). Your Account gives you access to the Services and functionality that we may establish and maintain from time to time and in our sole discretion.

You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your Account, and you must keep your Account password secure.

By providing MyShoperon your email address, you consent to our use of the email address to send you service-related email, including any notices required by law. MyShoperon may also send you electronic service related SMS messages. These electronic messages may be sent for various reasons, including to provide a receipt for your Order, for security purposes (e.g. verifying that your smartphone is connected to the phone number you entered upon registration).
