b) The Marketplace requires that the Device(s) are shipped using a service that provides proof of shipment and proof of delivery.
10) Fiduciary Responsibilities
Devices(s) remain the property of the Seller until the Seller has been notified of a successful sale by the Marketplace; title then passes directly to the Purchaser with shipment. All proceeds from the sale of items shall be held for the Seller and not made available to creditors of the Marketplace.
The Marketplace shall sell the Device(s) only at the Retail Price specified in the Seller’s initial application. Any change in the retail price by the Marketplace, must be agreed to in advance by the Seller and the Marketplace.

The Marketplace assumes full risk for the failure to pay on the part of any purchaser to whom it has sold an Device(s).
Marketplace shall use its best efforts to promote the Device(s) of the Seller. It is at the Marketplace’s discretion how many pieces of the Seller’s Device(s) will be displayed and in what manner.
15) Notices and changes of address

17) Quality assurance and repairs
Seller agrees after a purchase has been agreed upon, to get a quality assurance check from a qualified engineer of Marketplace’s choosing. Marketplace will pay for the initial quality assurance check but Seller agrees to pay for any repairs required that come out of the quality assurance check as well as future quality assurance checks.

If any part of this Agreement is held to be illegal, void, or unenforceable for any reason, such holding shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any other part.
