Welcome, and thank you for your interest in Mercato, Inc. ("Mercato," "we," or "us") and our website at www.mercato.com, along with our related websites, networks, applications, mobile applications, and other services provided by us (collectively, the "Service"). These Terms of Service are a legally binding contract between you and Mercato regarding your use of the Service.
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING TERMS CAREFULLY:
ARBITRATION NOTICE. Except for certain kinds of disputes described in Section 17, you agree that disputes arising under these Terms will be resolved by binding, individual arbitration, and BY ACCEPTING THESE TERMS, YOU AND Mercato ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. YOU AGREE TO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT to assert or defend your rights under this contract (except for matters that may be taken to small claims court). Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR and NOT a judge or jury. (See Section 17.)
Credit Card Authorization. You agree that Mercato or the applicable Merchant (defined below) will obtain a credit card authorization for the credit card you have on file with Mercato to cover the cost of the Merchant Products (defined below) ordered from a Merchant via the Service and any separate fees charged by Mercato in connection with that order or other services provided by Mercato (such as a Subscription (defined below)) (the "Mercato Services") and your card will be charged for the cost of the Merchant Products purchased by you and any applicable fees, taxes and/or tips arising in connection with each order for Merchant Products or agreement to purchase any Mercato Services. YOUR CARD MAY BE TEMPORARILY AUTHORIZED FOR AN AMOUNT GREATER THAN THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF THE ORDER APPEARING IN THE ORIGINAL CHECK-OUT. This higher authorized amount will be disclosed during the purchase process and is a temporary authorization charge on your order, to deal with situations where your total purchase amount turns out to be higher than the original amount due to special requests, added items, replacement items, or weight adjustments.
