RationPaani acts as a venue to allow the Users, who comply with RationPaani’s policies to offer, sell and buy goods within a fixed-price format. The App is only a venue through which the Users can reach a larger base to buy and sell items. RationPaani is not directly involved in the transaction between buyers and retailers. All the information and products listed on the App are provided in the ‘as is, where is’ format. As a result, RationPaani has no control over the quality, safety, morality or legality of any aspect of the items listed, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of retailers to sell items or the ability of buyers to pay for items. RationPaani does not pre-screen the Users or the content or information provided by such Users. RationPaani cannot ensure that a buyer or retailer will actually complete a transaction. RationPaani is not responsible for unsatisfactory or delayed performance of services or damages or delays as a result of items, which are out of stock, back ordered or otherwise unavailable. All items, offered by the retailers are only for a restricted time and only for the available supply as offered by retailers.

Consequently, RationPaani does not transfer legal ownership of items from the retailer to the buyer.

RationPaani does not make any representation or warranty as to the attributes (such as quality, worth, marketability, etc.) of the items or services proposed to be sold or offered on the App. In particular, RationPaani does not implicitly or explicitly support or endorse the sale or purchase of any items or services on the App. RationPaani accepts no liability for any errors or omissions, whether on behalf of itself or third parties.

THIRD PARTY APPLICATIONS AND CONTENT

In order to deliver the Services to you, RationPaani invokes a number of third-party applications which were not developed by RationPaani, i.e. browser, email and SMS programs, dialer, calendar, and other applications. The Services send information that you speak to these applications but do not perform these functions. RationPaani cannot take responsibility for any functionality, content, suitability, privacy, support or other attribute of those applications or the content they may request from or deliver to you. Your use of those applications, including when you access them via the Services, is governed by any license agreements you may have entered into with their respective vendors.

We cannot guarantee that web searches or other queries you submit via the Services to other applications will not result in displaying content or links to content that you may find objectionable, offensive, or otherwise inappropriate. Such content is not within our control.

THIRD PARTY LINKS

Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third party products or services through our website and other services. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sit

FEES, COSTS, AND OTHER EXPENSES

The Services make use of a data network operated by the device manufacturer and/or your wireless service provider to send both data and recorded audio from your device to our servers, and to serve information back to you. Depending on your data plan, you may incur charges from the device manufacturer or your wireless service provider for use of their networks and/or for specific services such as making phone calls, sending or receiving text messages and/or emails, or other services.

You are solely responsible for any and all costs you incur as a result of your usage of the Services.

DELIVERY T&CS:

You may not be able to avail our services if your delivery location is outside our current scope of service. We will keep you informed of the same at the time of confirming your order.

You understand the delivery periods quoted to you at the time of confirming the order is an approximate estimate and may vary. We will not be responsible for any delay in the delivery of your order.

Your order will be delivered only to the address designated by you at the time of placing the order on the platform. We reserve the right to cancel the order, in our sole discretion, in the event of any change to the place of delivery and you shall not be entitled to any refund for the same. Delivery in the event of change of the delivery location shall be at our sole discretion.

You shall undertake to provide adequate directions, information, and authorisations to accept delivery. In the event of any failure to accept delivery, failure to deliver within the estimated time due to your failure to provide appropriate instructions, or authorisations, then such goods shall be deemed to have been delivered to you and all risk and responsibility in relation to such goods shall pass to you and you shall not be entitled to any refund for the same. Our decision in relation to this shall be final and binding.

You understand that our liability ends once your order has been delivered to you.
