This Vendor Agreement (this “Agreement”) is entered into by you, the vendor, (hereinafter, “you” or “Vendor”) and Unique Inc. and sets out the terms and conditions governing your participation in Unique Markets events (each, an “Event”). By participating as a vendor at any Event you acknowledge that you have read and agree to the terms set out below.
Application & Payment: In order to participate in any event (even if you have participated in prior Events) Vendor must fill out an application for each Event (each an “Application”) specifying the details of your requested participation in the Event, and submit the required payment. Exact dates, prices and instructions are listed on the Application for each Event. Additional details relating to the Event(s) can be found in the FAQ for that specific event. Applications will not be considered until payment is received. Space is limited and Unique Inc. reserves the right to accept or reject any Vendor in its sole discretion. Unique Inc. does not guarantee that Vendor will get the size or type of spot they applied for. When and if Vendor’s Application is accepted, Vendor will be notified via email.
Services: Once accepted, Vendor will be assigned a designated table or spot. Additional information about the setup for each type of spot can be found in the FAQ and additional information will be sent to accepted vendors. You are responsible for bringing fixtures and decoration to define your space. Unique Inc. reserves the right to assign Vendor a designated spot within the Event as it sees fit. Unique Inc. does not accept requests for specific spot assignments and cannot guarantee that Vendor’s assigned spot will be free from structural or architectural obstructions. Vendors needing electricity or health permits need to make arrangements with the appropriate third parties and will be required to pay them an additional fee. Each accepted Vendor will receive three Vendor badges for staff to gain access to the Event. Any additional staff can purchase additional badges for $15.
Term: This Agreement commences upon your completion of the Application to be a vendor at any Event(s) and shall continue in effect through your participation in such Event(s), unless otherwise terminated in accordance with the terms contained herein.
Liability: Unique Inc. shall not be responsible for any auto-liability or auto damage by or from the vendor. Unique Inc. shall not be responsible for any loss or damage incurred by Vendor, including, without limitation, damage to Vendor’s property, loss of sales, or injury to or death of Vendor (or its agents, employees, and/or personnel). Unique Inc.’s maximum liability arising out of or relating to this Agreement shall not exceed, in the aggregate, the amounts paid to it by Vendor, and in no event shall Unique Inc. be liable for any consequential, incidental, indirect, punitive or special damages regardless of the cause of such damages. Vendor expressly assumes all risks of loss, damage, liability, injury, or destruction resulting from any cause whatsoever, including but not limited to acts or omissions by Vendor, and hereby releases and waives any claims against Unique Inc. related to such loss, damage, liability, injury, and/or destruction. Vendor covenants that it shall be fully responsible for any damages resulting from its participation in any Event, and agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold Unique Inc. (and its officers, employees, agents, vendors, affiliates, and representatives) harmless against any claims arising out of or related to Vendor’s participation in any Event, including for claims arising out of Vendor’s negligent actions or omissions.
Insurance: Vendor represents that it has, or will have at the time of the Event, appropriate insurance to cover liability for the types of activities Vendor will conduct at the Event including auto-liability insurance.

Cancellations: If there is a cancellation:
By Vendor: If Vendor needs to cancel, they must notify Unique Inc. by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If cancellation notification is received more than 45 days before the Event, Vendor will receive a full refund, minus the application fee. If Vendor cancels within 45 days of the Event, they will receive a 50% refund. Any cancellations within two weeks of the event will not receive a refund. By cancelling, Vendor forfeits their spot at the Event.
By Unique Inc: If a cancellation of the Event by Unique Inc. is necessary due to unforeseen circumstances, acts of a third party, or other circumstances which (in Unique Inc’s sole judgment) may compromise the safety of Event participants, then the Event will not be rescheduled and there will be no refunds to Vendor.
