1. General

The KTBS Local Marketplace website (https://ktbslocalmp.wpengine.com) and pages hosted on https://ktbslocalmp.wpengine.com (collectively, the “Website” or this or our “Website”) connects consumers in the Shreveport, LA, and surrounding areas with providers of goods and services (“Marketplace Vendors”). This Website and the service offered on this Website are owned and operated by KTBS, LLC (“KTBS”). KTBS facilitates your transaction, but payment, delivery and fulfillment of goods and services are completed directly by Marketplace Vendors. The following terms of service (“Terms”) govern your use of this Website on any platform and in any format and any and all services, including the KTBS Local Marketplace service, provided by KTBS through them (collectively, the “Service” or this or our “Service”). These Terms are a legally binding contract with KTBS. Please read these Terms carefully.

You agree that by clicking “Register,” “Login” or similar links, registering, accessing, or using the Service, you are agreeing to enter into a legally binding contract with KTBS and you are acknowledging that you have read and accept these Terms. If you do not agree to be bound by these Terms, do not click “Register,” “Login” or similar links, do not register an account and do not access or use the Service.

KTBS has the right, at its sole discretion, to enhance, change or discontinue all or part of the Service any time.  We may update or change these Terms from time to time. When we make a change to the Terms, we will inform you by changing the date at the top of this page noting when the new Terms were last updated. 

2. Account Registration and Password

In general, you may access the Service for free in keeping with these Terms. However, to access and use certain features of the Services and to make a purchase, you must register and create an account and password. You are responsible for maintaining security and control over your user name and password that you create to use these features of the Service. We are not responsible for any losses arising out of the unauthorized use of your account or the Service. If you believe that the security of your user name and/or password has been compromised, you agree to immediately change your user name and/or password to eliminate this security risk and to notify KTBS of any known or suspected unauthorized use of, or disclosure related to, your account. You may contact KTBS at info@ktbslocalmarketplace.com.

3. Eligible Users

Must Be 18. The Service is intended for adults for e-commerce purposes. The Service is not intended for or offered to those under 18 years old. Do not create an account if you are under 18 years old; if you are not at least 18 years old and you create an account, you do so in violation of these Terms.

No Users Under 13. The Service is not directed at or intended for use by children under 13 years old. We do not knowingly collect personal data from children under 13 through the Service. See our Privacy Policy [https://wq38cxfmtd.wpdns.site/privacy-policy/] for more information.

4. Purchases; Fulfillment; Risk of Loss; Returns

When you make a purchase through the Service, you are purchasing from Marketplace Vendors, not KTBS. KTBS does not participate in, and is not responsible or liable for, the purchase or payment process. We are not responsible for examining or evaluating, and we do not warrant, the goods and services offered by Marketplace Vendors. KTBS is not responsible for the actions, goods, services and content of Marketplace Vendors and any other third parties.

KTBS does not fulfill any orders through the Service. All terms of purchase, shipment, delivery and risk of loss are governed by the contracts and policies of the respective Marketplace Vendor. KTBS is not responsible for returns. Returns are handled by each Marketplace Vendor according to its own return policies. Please contact Marketplace Vendors directly for questions or instructions about terms of payment, shipment (including shipping costs), delivery, risk of loss and returns. 

5. Sales Tax

KTBS is not responsible for the collection and remittance of state and local sales tax for purchases facilitated through the Service. Sales taxes will be collected and remitted by the Marketplace Vendor from whom the purchase is made.
