This addendum (“Addendum”) to the Pinterest Business Terms of Service (“Business Terms”) together with the Business Terms governs your access to and use of the “Commerce Platform”, a Pinterest Product which: (i) enables you to provide Pinterest with information about products for sale by you (“Merchant Data”), and (ii) enables Pinterest to provide to its users the ability to purchase products from you within the Pinterest Products. Except as otherwise specified in this Addendum, all defined terms in this Addendum are as set forth in the Business Terms.
1. Our license to you.
Pinterest grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, and revocable license to use the Commerce Platform. Pinterest may enable the purchase functionality for your products at our sole and absolute discretion.
2. Your obligations
b. You agree to provide Pinterest users who make purchases with you through the Commerce Platform with the same customer support, refund policies, and any other buyer services, protections, or rights as those provided to purchasers of products on your own site(s) or applications. You are solely responsible for fulfilling purchases made through the Commerce Platform, and all customer support and inquiries associated with such purchases. You agree to fulfill purchases made through the Commerce Platform in the same manner (e.g., speed, care, etc.) in which you fulfill purchases of products through your own site(s) or applications.
c. You agree to notify Pinterest immediately at email@example.com if you experience any issues that adversely impact more than 2% of outstanding orders for purchases received through the Commerce Platform.
e. If a change to the Commerce Platform is required to (i) address a material failure of the Commerce Platform experienced by Pinterest users, (ii) protect the safety, rights, or property of the public, any person, or Pinterest, (iii) to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud or security issues, or (iv) to comply with any law or regulation, you agree to implement the changes within 7 days of notice from Pinterest, and Pinterest may immediately suspend your access to the Commerce Platform until the issue necessitating the change to the Commerce Platform is resolved. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Pinterest will use best efforts to notify you either immediately before or immediately following such Commerce Platform access suspension.
d. You agree that Shopify will have the right to share general account information about your Shopify account with Pinterest, such as information regarding your use of the Shopify platform and financial metrics which may include chargeback information, refund ratio, and transaction volume on the Shopify platform. Pinterest shall use such information solely to optimize operations between the Shopify and Pinterest platforms. Pinterest will not use this information for any purpose other than as stated in this Section 3(d), and will not share such information with any third party. When you terminate your account with or are removed from the Commerce Platform, Pinterest will delete this information within a reasonable period of time.
The Commerce Platform is made available to you free of charge; however, Pinterest reserves the right to charge fees for the Commerce Platform in the future. For the avoidance of doubt, if you participate in Pinterest’s advertising products (“Promoted Pins”), any Promoted Pins agreement between you and Pinterest shall govern your use of Promoted Pins including any fees for Promoted Pins.
Each of the parties will not disclose the other party’s Confidential Information to any third parties, and will only disclose the other party’s Confidential Information to employees, agents, and contractors who need to know such Confidential Information to fulfill obligations under this Addendum but only if the employee, agent, or contractor has agreed to nondisclosure restrictions at least as protective of the Confidential Information as those set forth in this Addendum. The recipient is not restricted from disclosing Confidential Information to the extent required by law, but must use reasonable efforts to give the other party reasonable advance notice of the required disclosure. Recipient must protect the other party’s Confidential Information using the same degree of care that it exercises with respect with its own Confidential Information, but in no event with less than reasonable care.
“Confidential Information” means information disclosed by a party to the other party under this Addendum that is marked as confidential or would normally be considered confidential under the circumstances, and includes the terms of this Addendum, non-public aspects of the Commerce Platform made available to you, the results and performance of your use of the Commerce Platform, and any feedback between you and Pinterest regarding the Commerce Platform. Confidential Information does not include any information that (i) is now or hereafter becomes generally known or available to the public, through no act or omission on the part of recipient; (ii) was known by recipient without restriction as to use or disclosure prior to receiving such information from the discloser, (iii) is rightfully acquired by recipient from a third party who has the right to disclose it and who provides it without restriction as to use or disclosure; or (iv) is independently developed by recipient.
7. Term and Termination.
c. Pinterest may modify this Addendum from time to time. The modified Addendum will be posted here, will not apply retroactively, and will become effective 7 days after posting except for changes made for legal reasons, which will become effective immediately. By continuing to access or use the Commerce Platform after modifications become effective, you agree to be bound by the modified Addendum. If you do not agree to the new terms, please stop using the Commerce Platform.
