Eligibility. By purchasing merchandise on Marketplace, you affirm that you are an individual, eighteen years old or over, using a valid form of payment. In all transactions conducted through Marketplace, you agree to provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself and your form of payment when prompted by Marketplace. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or Burning Man has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, Burning Man has the right to cancel the transaction and suspend or terminate your use of Marketplace. By using Marketplace, you represent and warrant that you have the right, authority, and capacity to enter into this Agreement and you agree to abide by all terms and conditions of this Agreement. Burning Man reserves the right to refuse and/or cancel any transactions or orders in Burning Man’s sole and complete discretion. Use of Marketplace is void where prohibited.
Pricing and Availability. Merchandise offered for sale on Marketplace is produced by either Burning Man or by a third party independent of Burning Man. For third party-produced items offered on Marketplace (like books or videos), Burning Man acts only as a sales agent for the seller and collects sale proceeds on the seller’s behalf. This means that Burning Man does not set the sale price or control product availability for these items. Burning Man does not guarantee the availability of any item depicted on Marketplace.
Refunds and Exchanges. All sales on Marketplace are final. Please review your order carefully before completing the purchase. Burning Man will not refund or exchange merchandise purchased on Marketplace for any reason.
Resale Prohibited. Merchandise obtained through Marketplace is for individual use by the purchaser only and may not be resold. Burning Man has the right to suspend or terminate your use of Marketplace if you resell items purchased on Marketplace.
Risk of Loss. All items purchased through Marketplace are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon Burning Man’s delivery to the carrier.
Intellectual Property. Burning Man owns, controls, or is licensed to use and to sublicense various names, marks, and artworks, which are Burning Man trademarks, copyrights, or other protected intellectual property. Burning Man’s copyrights (including without limitation the Ten Principles and the designs of the Burning Man sculpture and the Black Rock City map) are protected by United States and international copyright laws. Burning Man’s trademarks (including without limitation “Burning Man,” “Black Rock City,” “Decompression,” and the Burning Man logo) may not be used in connection with any product or service that is not Burning Man’s, in any manner that is likely to cause confusion among customers, or in any manner that disparages Burning Man. All other intellectual property not owned by Burning Man that appears in Marketplace is the property of its owner, who may or may not be affiliated or otherwise connected with Burning Man.

You may terminate your account at any time, for any reason, by contacting the Marketplace site administrator. You agree that Burning Man may, without prior notice to you, immediately terminate your account and access to Marketplace. Cause for such termination shall include, but not be limited to: (a) breaches or violations of this Agreement or other incorporated agreements, (b) requests by law enforcement or other government agencies, (c) a request by you (self-initiated account deletions), (d) discontinuance or material modification to Marketplace (or any part thereof), (e) unexpected technical or security issues or problems, or (f) extended periods of inactivity.
