How TROVEA Works

TROVEA provides you with the facility to view, browse and make purchase of the Products from the sellers ('Sellers') using the Website. You understand and agree that the Products are not supplied by TROVEA nor does TROVEA participate in any part of the sale and purchase transaction between you and the Sellers. TROVEA acts as a venue to allow users who comply with TROVEA's policies to offer, sell, and buy the Products within a fixed price format. TROVEA is not directly involved in the transaction between you and Sellers. Consequently, you further acknowledge and agree that any contracts for the purchase of the Product shall be strictly between you and the Seller of that Product.
