DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES


CoCo College is a platform that exclusively connects students, within their own university, where buying and selling goods and services becomes a seamless interaction. CoCo College creates an environment where university students, buyers and sellers, connect, and later exchange their owned goods or services. When users click on “make an offer”, both buyers and sellers are in charge of meeting each other independently to physically exchange their products for cash or other payment methods. This platform is free to use for university students. The only payment service we receive is when sellers want to “BOOST” or “SUPER BOOST” their owned products in the home page of our website. In order to participate in the CoCo College community, both buyers and sellers must have a university email. Sellers take a picture of their indicated products, add a brief description, price, and they are ready to make a potential sale. CoCo College includes a messaging feature that allows buyers and sellers to discuss further details about the goods or service, and set up an in-person meeting to finalize the purchase.


MODIFICATIONS TO THE SERVICE AND PRICES


Prices for our products are subject to change without notice.

We reserve the right at any time to modify or discontinue the Service (or any part or content thereof) without notice at any time.

We shall not be liable to you or to any third-party for any modification, price change, suspension or discontinuance of the Service.


PRODUCTS OR SERVICES


All products or services are available exclusively online through the website.

We strongly encourage our seller users to display as accurately as possible the colors and images of the products or services that appear at the store. We cannot guarantee that your computer monitor's display of any color will be accurate, nor that the seller users will comply in uploading their products’ or services’ pictures as clear as possible.

We reserve the right, but are not obligated, to limit the sales of the products or Services to any person, geographic region or jurisdiction. We may exercise this right on a case-by-case basis.

We reserve the right to limit the quantities of any products or services that is offered. All descriptions of products or product pricing are subject to change at anytime without notice, at the sole discretion of us, or the selling users. We reserve the right to discontinue any product at any time. Any offer for any product or service made on this site is void where prohibited.

We do not warrant that the quality of any products, services, information, or other material purchased or obtained by you will meet your expectations, or that any errors in the Service will be corrected.


ACCURACY OF BILLING AND ACCOUNT INFORMATION


We reserve the right to refuse any order you place with us. We may, in our sole discretion, limit or cancel quantities purchased per person or per order. These restrictions may include orders placed by or under the same customer account, the same credit card, and/or orders that use the same billing address. In the event that we make a change to or cancel an order, we may attempt to notify you by contacting the e-mail and/or billing address/phone number provided at the time the order was made. We reserve the right to limit or prohibit orders that, in our sole judgment, appear to be placed by non-student accounts.
