If a User is below 18 years of age, it is assumed that he/she is using/browsing the Platforms under the supervision of his/her parent or legal guardian and that such User’s parent or legal guardian has read and agrees to the terms of this Agreement, including terms of purchase of Products, on behalf of the minor User. Should Urban Cashews be made aware that a User is under the age of 18 and is using/browsing the Platforms without the supervision of his/her parent or legal guardian, Urban Cashews reserves the right to deactivate such User’s account without further notice.

You shall not modify the Urban Cashews Content or reproduce, display, publicly perform, distribute, reverse engineer or otherwise use the Urban Cashews Content in any way for any public or commercial purpose or for personal gain.
2.4. Urban Cashews authorises you to view and access the Urban Cashews Content solely for identifying Products, carrying out purchases of Products and processing returns and refunds, in accordance with Return and Refund Policy, if any. Urban Cashews, therefore, grants you a limited, revocable permission to access and use the Services. This permission does not include a permission for carrying out any resale of the Products or commercial use of the Urban Cashews Content, any collection and use of product listings, description, or prices, and, any derivative use of the Platforms or of Urban Cashews Content.
2.5. As means to assist the Users in identifying the Products of their choice, Urban Cashews provides visual representations on the Platforms including graphics, illustrations, photographs, images, videos, charts, screenshots, infographics and other visual aids. While reasonable efforts are made to provide accurate visual representations, Urban Cashews disclaims any guarantee or warranty of exactness of such visual representation or description of the Product, with the actual Product ultimately delivered to Users. The appearance of the Product when delivered may vary for various reasons.
2.6. Users may make purchases on the Platforms. For the purposes of identifying a User, Urban Cashews may, from time to time, collect certain personally identifiable information such as your first name and last name, email address, mobile phone number, postal address, other contact information, demographic profile, etc. Users may also register themselves on the Platforms. Registration on the Platforms is one-time and you are required to remember your username and password and keep the same confidential. In the event where you have misplaced your username and password details, you can retrieve and change the same using the “forgot username/password” option on the Platforms.
2.7. The user shall assume all risks, liabilities, and consequences if his/her account has been accessed illegally or without authorisation through means such as hacking and if through such unauthorised access, a purchase of Products has been made through the Services. It is specifically clarified that payments of monies towards any Products purchased through the Services by unauthorised or illegal use of the User’s account shall entirely be borne by the User.
2.8. Display of Products for purchase on the Platforms is merely an invitation to offer. An order placed by a User for purchase of a Product constitutes an offer. All orders placed by Users on the Platforms are subject to the availability of such Product, Urban Cashews’s acceptance of the User’s offer and the User’s continued adherence to the terms of the Agreement.
2.9. You agree to maintain and promptly update all data provided by you and to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current, incomplete, or if Urban Cashews has reasonable grounds to suspect that the information provided by you is untrue, inaccurate, not current, incomplete, or not in accordance with the terms of the Agreement, Urban Cashews reserves the right to indefinitely suspend, terminate or block your access to the Platforms, and refuse to provide you with access to the Platforms in future.

It is specifically clarified that a text message and/or an email confirming the receipt of your order is not an acceptance from Urban Cashews that the Product will be delivered. Urban Cashews’s acceptance to your offer to purchase shall occur and conclude only when the Products have been despatched by Urban Cashews and a text message and/or email confirming such despatch has been sent to you. Urban Cashews, at all times, reserves the right to limit the quantity of items in, or cancel an order prior to despatch.
2.12. Any communication from Urban Cashews shall be sent only to your registered mobile number and/or email address or such other contact number or email address that you may designate, for any particular transaction.
