The Meet Market, otherwise referred to as TMM, is an online marketplace which operates as a third party that provides an opportunity to makers to sell their products to customers and discover a virtual network of clients. What we actually do is provide the platform where connections between makers and customers can be created. We do not represent the maker or the customer and we are here to maintain a healthy and ethical virtual environment. We do not sell any goods on behalf of the makers. We are not performing transactions on behalf of the makers at any stage, nor are we involved in defining the pricing of maker’s products or the individual maker storefront policies and settings created such as shop policies, shipping & return policies, pricing, etc.
TMM does not control and is not liable or responsible for the quality, safety, lawfulness or availability of the products offered for sale by the makers on our website, the ability of the makers to complete a sale or the ability of buyers to complete a purchase. You agree therefore that you will not hold TMM and our affiliates and agents liable for any losses, damages, claims, liabilities, costs or expenses arising from any transaction, including any breach, partial performance or non-performance of the transaction by the other party.
The Terms may change from time to time. We will keep you up-to-date regarding any change and/or amendment we believe is crucial. The changes will be effective upon their posting unless otherwise specified. By using our services following the changes already posted we deem that you have run through the updated terms and have already accepted them.
By using our services we grant you the right to post your content, share your ideas and thoughts with the other members of TMM community. It is your content and we herein refer to that as such since you retain full ownership, but by posting it you grant us the permission to use it in order to help the community thrive and expand. We will use your content without infringing any right you own upon it. For example we may use your content for promotional reasons that could also include promoting your listings in our website, in TMM application or in our related sites on our Social Media (Facebook / Instagram etc) or on websites, applications, and social media pages of our partners or third-parties or on any advertising medium. By accepting the Terms you agree and acknowledge the above use of your Content. We may also remove your content in case we in our sole judgment believe that it violates the law or the Terms. Apart from the above, we have to inform you that there are many things that other users may also want to do with your content, for example copy it, modify it, re-share it or broadcast it. TMM does not bare any responsibility regarding that activity.

TMM is partnering with Everypay which is a licensed payment provider to facilitate card payments and other payments, the disbursement of funds to the makers, fraud analysis, identity verifications, etc.
Recognizing the importance of electronic payment security, EveryPay is a licensed Payment Institution by the Bank of Greece (Decision No. 280/3 / 23-7-2018 GG B 3010 / 25-7-2018), and manages securely card payment transactions, in accordance with the regulatory framework of the card transaction security management standard. Everypay is certified in accordance with the PCI DSS compliance standards. All Everypay services are made through secure connections with 256bit SSL certificates. EveryPay also supports the ability to use the 3D Secure service, an additional security token for VISA & MasterCard. The Payer then has to enter his personal secret code to complete the transaction successfully.
Your personal data (for example your name, e-mail address, shipping address) are processed by TMM, by the makers whose items you are buying and by our partners (i.e. Everypay). Each maker and each third party is considered a separate and independent data controller of your personal information according to the EU law. That means that each party is responsible for the personal information it processes while providing the services. For example, if a maker accidentally discloses a customer’s name and email address when fulfilling another customer’s order, the maker will be solely responsible for that unauthorized disclosure and not TMM.
As clearly stated above we reserve the right to terminate or suspend your account in TMM e-shop as well as any other account related to you in our sole judgment. In case there is a report or it seems that you have violated these Terms or any other of our policies TMM has the right to suspend your account and investigate the case. During that time you will not be able to use any of the services we provide through our website or our mobile app or any other platform (e.g. creating accounts, buying, selling). After investigating your case TMM will inform you regarding the reactivation or the permanent deactivation of your account.
