Last Revised: March 2021
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF USE CAREFULLY

Your Acceptance

(a) This website or application is made available by Merkado Services LLC. Accessing or using this website, will signify your acceptance of these terms of use (“Terms”), as such, these Terms may be revised by Merkado from time to time, and constitutes a binding agreement between the user (“you” or “User”) and Merkado Services, LLC. If the User does not agree to these Terms, the User should not access or use this website. These Terms contain disclaimers and other provisions that limit our liability to the User.

(b) These Terms apply to your access to, and use of, all or part of any website or mobile application of Merkado Services LLC or its subsidiaries or affiliated companies (collectively, “Merkado”), including oky.app, login.oky.app, mi.oky.app, merkado.group and/or any other site, mobile version of this website, mobile application or online service that link to these Terms. We refer to all of these, collectively, as the “Site” in these Terms. These Terms do not alter in any way the terms or conditions of any other agreement you may have with Merkado for products, services or otherwise.

(c) You should not assume that the information about Merkado on the Site contains all the relevant information available to Merkado. Merkado may, at its sole discretion, modify, revise or update these Terms at any time without providing advance notice to the User. The User agrees that Merkado may provide notices, disclosures and changes to these Terms by electronic means, by changing these Terms or by posting revisions on the Site. If you continue using the Site after such modifications, revisions or updates are published, you agree to be bound by such modifications, revisions or updates. The effective date of any such modifications, revisions or changes will be the date shown in these Terms. Nothing in these Terms shall be deemed to confer any third-party rights or benefits.

(d) In order to participate in certain areas of the Site, the User will need to register for an account. You agree to (i) create one account, (ii) provide accurate, truthful, current and complete information when creating your account, (iii) maintain and promptly update your account information, (iv) maintain the security of your account by not sharing your password with others and restricting access to your account and your computer, (v) immediately notify Merkado if you discover or otherwise suspect any security breaches relating to the Site; and (vi) take responsibility of all activities that occur under your account and accept all risks of unauthorized access.

(e) If the User signs up for a Merkado account on the Site, the User is, by default, opted in to receive promotional content and promotional communications from Merkado via email and other electronic means of communications, including, but not limited to, short message services (SMS), push notifications and in-app messages (the “Promotional E-Communications”). The User may, at the time of sign up, opt out of receiving Promotional E-Communications. Thereafter, the User may opt out by (1) adjusting the User’s profile settings in the User’s account via mi.oky.app, (2) by replying any of the following keywords “stop”, “unsubscribe”, “cancel”, “end”, or “quit” (“STOP”) to the phone number they are receiving the Promotional E-Communications from. Either of these two opt out actions will include the User’s account in Merkado’s block list and will prevent the User from receiving any further Promotional E-Communications. Please note that the STOP keyword reply only applies to Promotional E-Communications sent from the number that messaged the User. If the User has more than one Merkado accounts, the User will need to take one of the aforementioned opt out actions with respect to each account. Merkado will automatically stop sending Promotional E-Communications to Users with Merkado accounts that have zero activity for a period of 365 continuous days from their last activity (“Automatic Disabling”), unless the User deactivates the Automatic Disabling function in his or her account profile settings. Once an account is automatically disabled, the User may resume receiving messages by messaging the keyword “start”, “continue”, “activate”, “unstop” to the same phone number the User sent the keywords to disable communications. Please note that if you opt out of Promotional E-Communications we may still be required to send you electronic communications regarding factual, transactional and/or servicing information in connection with your User account or the products or services that we are providing. If you have any questions regarding your use of personal information, please contact us at +13057495530 or info@okyapp.com
