CG Cookie Markets (“CGCM”) is a platform created to allow you to purchase licenses of digital goods through an online store.

How Does Buying Stuff Work?:
When purchasing from CGCM, you are purchasing a “grant of rights” or “license” to use the purchased product, not the actual product. Your use of such product must be in accordance with the licensed rights granted by the licensor of such purchased product. Different license types are available for you to choose from when you purchase a product.
Understanding which license you purchased from CGCM is very important and your sole responsibility. Please take the time to review the different licensing options available on our license page and review the terms below, prior to purchasing products through this website.
Conditions of Purchase:
- The Creator(s) of any and all products retains ownership of such products;
- You’ve carefully reviewed the license options offered by the Creator(s) in connection with the product and agree it fits your usage scenario;
- There is no guarantee that the product will be a available on the website forever, so it is encouraged for you to download such product and save it in a safe place;
- To use the product as intended and pursuant to the rights granted in the license agreement; and
- To not redistribute, resell, or share the products obtained from CGCM to and/or with others. Unless authorized by the license purchased.
CGC works hard to ensure quality and to hold its Creator(s) responsible for their product. To review what Creators are agreeing to when supplying products to CGCM, view their agreement.
Taxes, Fees, and Charges:
You are responsible for paying all taxes, fees, and charges associated with your use of CGCM and/or Network wherever levied (e.g., including, without limitation, withholding tax).
You are responsible for all costs of currency conversion you may incur from your financial institution. CGC has no control over such currency conversion.
CGC does not store any credit card information in our database. Credit card information is solely stored via a third-party (e.g., including, without limitation, to http://stripe.com or http://paypal.com).
As a condition of remaining active on CGCM, CGC encourages a reasonable level of support be offered by Creators for their products. Support is offered by support conversations and documentation available on each item's product page. If you feel this is not being offered contact [email protected]
As a buyer we want to make sure you are happy with each and every purchase you make at CGCM and/or on any website on the Network. If you’re not happy, we are not happy!
If you purchase any product and it does not work, WE FIRST ASK YOU CONTACT THE CREATOR AT THE CREATOR’S SUPPORT PAGE AND ASK FOR THEIR HELP IN RESOLVING YOUR ISSUE. If after contacting the Creator, the product still does not work, or you feel the Creator misrepresented the product, please feel free to contact us and let us know the product you would like refunded, along with a detailed description of the issues with the product. We will investigate, and if the product is found faulty or not working as described, it will be fixed, or a refund offered.
Note: Please, prior to contacting CGCM, first visit the Creator’s documentation page for the product in question and ask the Creator for support.

ALL SUCH INFORMATION, SOFTWARE, PRODUCTS, SERVICES AND RELATED GRAPHICS ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. CGC AND/OR ITS CREATORS HEREBY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS WITH REGARD TO THIS INFORMATION, SOFTWARE, PRODUCTS, SERVICES, AND RELATED GRAPHICS, INCLUDING ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, AND NONINFRENGEMENT.

You and CGC agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating in any way to the website and/or Network’s website or your use thereof, shall be determined by mandatory binding arbitration. You agree that the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and CGC are each waiving the right to a trial by jury and the right to participate in a class or multi-party action. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of your use of the website and/or Network’s websites. The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes of the American Arbitration Association (the "AAA Rules") and as administered by the AAA.
YOU AND CGC AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A CLASS MEMBER OR IN ANY REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY OR PROCEEDING. Further, the arbitrator shall not consolidate any other person's claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a multi-party or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable in any way, then the entirety of this arbitration section shall be null and void. The arbitrator may not award declaratory or injunctive relief.
Any arbitration must be commenced by filing a demand for arbitration with the AAA within ONE (1) YEAR after the date the party asserting the claim first knows or reasonably should know of the act, omission or default giving rise to the claim; and there shall be no right to any remedy for any claim not asserted within that time period. If applicable law prohibits a one-year limitations period for asserting claims, any claim must be asserted within the shortest time period permitted by applicable law.
You and CGC agree that this Agreement involves interstate commerce and is subject to the Federal Arbitration Act. You and CGC further agree that applicable laws of the State of Illinois shall exclusively govern any dispute without regard to choice or conflicts of law rules. The sole and exclusive venue for the resolution of any dispute, whether or not subject to mandatory arbitration as described above, shall lie in the County of Cook, in the State of Illinois.

No agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer or franchisor-franchisee relationship is intended or created by the terms and conditions hereunder. CGC may assign its rights and responsibilities hereunder without notice to you. The failure of a party to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the terms and conditions hereunder will not constitute a waiver of the right or provision.
