These are the Terms of Service, Use, and Sale (the “Terms of Service” or “Terms”) that govern our relationship with users and others who interact with Nise Tech Inc. (“you” or “your”) or access, or use the Services (defined below) of Nise Tech Inc. and Nise Tech Inc. brands.
The term “Service” and collectively “Nise Services” or “Services” refer to Nise Tech Inc. websites, mobile applications, products such as the Nise Wave circulator ( “Product”, “Wave”, “Connected Devices” or “Products”), and other existing and future services and products such owned, operated or offered by Nise Tech Inc., a company incorporated in the Province of Ontario, Canada or its affiliates (“Nise Tech Inc.”, “Nise”, “Nise Tech”, “we” or “us”) (each a “Service” and collectively “Nise Services” or “Services”).
These Terms do not alter in any way the terms or conditions of any other agreement you may have with us with respect to any Products, Services or otherwise. If you are using the Products or Services on behalf of any entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to accept these Terms on such entity’s behalf and that such entity agrees to be responsible to us if you or such entity violates these Terms.
Please read these Terms of service carefully. Your use OF ANY SERVICE IN ANY MANNER, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ACCESSING, INSTALLING, OR USING THE SERVICE (which includes publishing recipes through our services) indicates that YOU have read, accepted and AGREED TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS OF SERVICE and any other applicable terms.
THESE TERMS CONTAIN AN ARBITRATION CLAUSE NEAR THE END. EXCEPT FOR CERTAIN TYPES OF DISPUTES MENTIONED IN THAT ARBITRATION CLAUSE, YOU AND NISE TECH AGREE THAT DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND NISE TECH WILL BE RESOLVED BY MANDATORY BINDING ARBITRATION, AND YOU AND NISE TECH WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS-ACTION LAWSUIT OR CLASS-WIDE ARBITRATION.
We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to change these Terms of Service at any time, and will publish a revised version of these Terms of Service on the Service with the new “Last Updated” date as indicated at the end of these Terms of Service.
Continued access to and use of the Service (which includes publishing recipes through our Services) following any such change means you accept and will abide by the changes.
We encourage you to frequently review the Terms to ensure you understand the terms and conditions that apply when you access or use the Services. If you do not agree to the revised Terms, you may not access or use the Services. Any changes we make will not affect your rights with respect to Products you have already purchased or orders you have already placed.
1. Acceptance of Terms
Because Nise Tech Inc. provides a wide range of Services and Products, we may ask you to review and accept supplemental terms that apply to your interaction with a specific Service or Product. To the extent those supplemental terms conflict with these terms, the supplemental terms associated with the app, product, or service govern with respect to your use of such app, product or service to the extent of the conflict.
The Services are not targeted toward or intended for use by anyone under the age of 16. You may only use the Services if

4. Terms of Sale
4.1. Payment and Billing Information
By providing a credit card or other payment method that we accept, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to use the designated payment method and that you permit us (or our third-party payment processor) to charge your payment method for the total amount of your order (including any applicable Taxes and other charges). If the payment method cannot be verified, is invalid or is otherwise not acceptable, your order may be suspended or canceled. You must resolve any problem we encounter in relation to the payment method you select in order to proceed with your order.
Our presentation of Products and Services shall not be considered a binding offer, but rather an invitation to place an order. Once you conclude the online purchase process, we will have a binding contract of sale. You may update your cart at any time before concluding the online purchase process. We will not proceed with the delivery process until your payment has been received.
4.2. Pricing and Availability
All prices are shown in U.S. dollars, unless we are required by law to display prices in the local currency. Prices do not include applicable Taxes (defined below), shipping and handling charges, or other fees, unless we clearly state otherwise or are required by law to display prices inclusive of any Taxes, charges and other fees.
All Products and Services offered for sale are subject to availability and we reserve the right to impose quantity limits on any order, reject all or any part of an order, and discontinue sales of Products and Services without prior notice. Prices for Products and Services are subject to change at any time, but such changes will not affect any order for Products or Services you have already placed.
To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you are responsible for any sales, use, value-added or other governmental taxes, fees or duties (collectively, "Taxes") due with respect to your purchase and use of Products or Services. Orders placed outside the U.S. may incur Taxes as determined by the customs agency within the destination country. Assessment of Taxes is generally based upon the value of the order and the Tax-free threshold (if applicable) for goods imported into the destination country. We will collect applicable Taxes if we determine we have a duty to collect Taxes. Please note that we do not collect Taxes on merchandise shipped to jurisdictions in which we do not have substantial nexus. For our U.S. users, the actual Taxes charged and collected may differ from the amount shown at checkout. Several factors may cause this difference, such as variances between processor programs and changes in Tax rates.
4.4. Shipping; Risk of Loss
You agree to pay any shipping and handling charges shown at the time you make a purchase. We reserve the right to increase, decrease, add or eliminate shipping and handling charges from time to time, but we will provide notice of the charges applicable to you before you make your purchase. Any delivery dates or times shown as part of the checkout process are estimates only and are not guaranteed. Unless we state otherwise, risk of loss or damage to a Product passes to you upon delivery of the Product to your specified delivery location. If you have any questions or concerns regarding shipping, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
4.5. Returns and Refunds
Products Purchased Directly from Nise Tech. If you reside in the U.S., we accept returns and issue refunds for non-food Products that you purchase directly from us if such Products are returned within 30 days of delivery in an unopened and unused condition. Before returning any Product, you must obtain a return authorization from Nise Tech by contacting us at email@example.com and providing the following information: (a) the reason for the return; and (b) the original purchase order number. We may charge a 20% restocking fee for any returns that are not made in accordance with these terms. For non-U.S. residents, please see below for the return and refund terms for Products purchased from Nise Tech that apply to you based on your country of residence.
Third-Party Products Purchased from Third-Party Sellers. We may provide the ability to purchase products from third-party sellers through the Services, in which case, we act as an intermediary only. If you purchase a product from a third-party seller, your purchase will be governed by the terms and policies of that third party. We are not the sellers of such products and are not a party to the sale of these products; therefore, we do not make any representations or warranties in terms of that product, nor do we accept returns or issue refunds for such products.
We attempt to be as accurate as possible and to eliminate errors on our Services; however, we do not represent or warrant that the descriptions, pricing or other Product- or Service-related information is accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free. In the event of an error, we reserve the right to correct such error and revise your order accordingly (which includes charging the correct price) or to cancel the order and refund any amount charged.
