2. Intellectual Rights Policy


2.1 Intellectual Rights Guide

Intellectual Properties rights give the owner exclusive rights over their brand, innovation or idea. Intellectual Properties includes trademarks, patents and designs. At Eco Mall, we strive to create a fair and trustworthy marketplace. Hence, we require our sellers to comply with intellectual property laws. This policy covers rules we expect sellers to adhere to in regards to intellectual rights policy, actions that we may take and a guide to report an infringement.

1.     Do not sell any replica or counterfeit products on Eco Mall.

2.     Do not mislead potential buyers by listing your product with another brand's name. You may, however, add that your product is compatible with another brand. For example; Wasabi power batteries compatible with GoPro camera.

3.     You must ensure that your listing’s text and picture are your own and not copies of another website, unless you have written permission.

If you believe another user has violated this policy, and you will like to report an alleged infringement, you may contact us.


2.3 Disclaimer

Eco Mall will not be held responsible for any Intellectual Property Infringements by sellers on our site.

  

3. Feedback and Review Policy


3.1 Trade feedback and review policy

After a transaction is carried out, Eco Mall will invite both parties to leave feedback on their experience with the other party. After a product purchase is complete, we will invite the buyer to leave a review on the product they bought.

Eco Mall’s feedback and review system allows members to comment on their trading experience with their transaction partner. We believe feedback is important because it may influence a user’s decision before they carry out a transaction with another particular member. Having a feedback system also helps to maintain a high standard of trading on the Eco Mall website.

To ensure that this feature maintains its purpose, Eco Mall requires you to comply with these policies:

Do’s

1.     Ensure that your feedback is honest and factual.

2.     Make sure that your feedback is relevant to the transaction.

 

 Dont’s

1.     Manipulate the feedback system to improve your score, hence enhancing your reputation. Eco Mall rewards highly rated stores by awarding them a Gold Store status. We highly discourage users placing dishonest feedback with the intent of receiving positive feedback in exchange 

2.     Threaten another member with leaving negative feedback unreasonably to manipulate them.

3.     Swear or use crude language in your feedback.

4.     Leave offensive feedback or defamatory statements attacking another member, rather than commenting on the transaction.

5.     Disclose the other trader’s personal information in your feedback.

 

Eco Mall has the right to edit or remove any feedback that does not follow this policy. We may also remove feedback if the user leaving feedback is no longer a member or has had their account suspended or removed, or if we decided that the feedback was inappropriate for any other reasons not stated in this policy.


3.2 Disagree with some feedback?

If you disagree with feedback about you, there are certain actions you can take. Firstly, you can contact the other trader and try to resolve the issue with them. If you think that their feedback does not comply with our policies, you may click on “Flag this feedback”, which will allow an Eco Mall team member to review it.

Finally, you may respond to their feedback or open a dispute.
