Parties other than Qonooz operate stores, provide services, or sell product lines on this Website. In addition, we provide links to the sites of affiliated companies and certain other businesses. We are not responsible for examining or evaluating, and we do not warrant the offerings of, any of these businesses or individuals or the content of their websites.

Qonooz allows third party sellers to list and sell their products at Qonooz.com. In each such case this is indicated on the respective product detail page. While Qonooz helps facilitate transactions that are carried out on the Qonooz marketplace, Qonooz is neither the buyer nor the seller of the vendor’s items. Qonooz provides a venue for vendors and buyers to negotiate and complete transactions. Accordingly, the contract formed at the completion of a sale for these third party products is solely between buyer and vendor. Qonooz is not a party to this contract nor assumes any responsibility arising out of or in connection with it nor is it the vendor’s agent. The vendor is responsible for the sale of the products and for dealing with any buyer claims or any other issue arising out of or in connection with the contract between the buyer and vendor. Because Qonooz wants the buyer to have a safer buying experience, Qonooz provides the Qonooz O’s guarantee in addition to any contractual or other rights.

We will attempt to limit the frequency and duration of any such suspension or restriction.
Qonooz will not be responsible for (i) losses that were not caused by any breach on our part, or (ii) any business loss (including loss of profits, revenue, contracts, anticipated savings, data, goodwill or wasted expenditure), or (iii) any indirect or consequential losses that were not foreseeable to both you and us when you commenced using the Qonooz Services. We will not be held responsible for any delay or failure to comply with our obligations under these conditions if the delay or failure arises from any cause which is beyond our reasonable control. This condition does not affect your legal right to have goods sent or services provided within a reasonable time or to receive a refund if goods or services ordered cannot be supplied within a reasonable time owing to a cause beyond our reasonable control.
If you breach these Conditions of Use and we take no action, we will still be entitled to use our rights and remedies in any other situation where you breach these Conditions of Use.

In order to keep the Qonooz Software up-to-date, we may offer automatic or manual updates at any time and without notice to you.
Your order is an offer to Qonooz to buy the product(s) in your order. When you place an order to purchase a product from Qonooz, we will send you an e-mail confirming receipt of your order and containing the details of your order (the Order Receipt Confirmation E-mail). The Order Receipt Confirmation E-mail is acknowledgement that we have received your order, and does not confirm acceptance of your offer to buy the product(s) ordered. We only accept your offer, and conclude the contract of sale for a product ordered by you, when we ship the product to you and send e-mail confirmation to you that we’ve shipped the product to you (the Shipping Confirmation E-mail). If your order is shipped in more than one package, you may receive a separate Shipping Confirmation E-mail for each package, and each Shipping Confirmation E-mail and corresponding shipment will conclude a separate contract of sale between us for the product(s) specified in that Shipping Confirmation E-mail. Your contract is with Qonooz.com. Both you and Qonooz can cancel your order for a product at no cost any time before we send the Shipping Confirmation E-mail relating to that product. Your right to cancel does not apply to certain categories of products and services, including digital products or software which are not supplied in a physical format (e.g. on a CD or DVD), once download or use (whichever is earlier) has begun.
You consent to receive sales invoices electronically. For each delivery, we will inform you in our Shipping Confirmation E-mail if an electronic invoice is available.
Qonooz focuses on business development for end users, and prohibits sales by resellers. Sales by resellers refer to behavior of customers who resell to their direct customers of products purchased from Qonooz. If Qonooz finds out that you resell products purchased from Qonooz, we reserve the right not to allow product purchase by your account and may permanently close your account.
RETURNS, REFUNDS AND TITLE
Qonooz does not take title to returned items until the item arrives at our fulfillment center. At our discretion, a refund may be issued without requiring a return. In this situation, Qonooz does not take title to the refunded item.
Qonooz provides up to twelve (12)- month warranty on eligible products purchased in the United Arab Emirates (the “UAE”). At Qonooz’s discretion, this warranty obligation is limited to repair of defective product or replacement of the defective part, or replacement or refund according to the price of the product at the time of repair or replacement. For selected products and in instances where the transaction takes place in the UAE and Qonooz is the seller of record, warranty repairs will be carried out by authorized service centers designated by Qonooz.
