Respect Others: Pellea is a meeting place for people of different cultures, lifestyles and ideals. By joining our community, you promise to communicate with respect and consideration, even if you meet someone you disagree with.
Work Together to Resolve Disputes: Pellea is always encouraged to work through their member, vendor or affiliate disputes and problems together with the others. Working together with others and appreciating different viewpoints are important aspects of the Pellea experience.
Use Good Judgment and Be Empathetic: When interacting with others on Pellea, try to see the world from their perspective. People contribute to the Pellea community in their own way. Disputes between members, vendors or affiliates can occur when different cultural norms create a misunderstanding, as many things are acceptable in some cultures and unacceptable in others.
Interactions With Others: It is okay to disagree. In fact, alternative points of view are a key part of cultural exchange as long as your comments are civil, respectful and polite. Remember to give the impression of assuming goodwill on the part of the person with whom you are disagreeing.
Stay Safe: Safety Is a Cornerstone of the Pellea Community. Member, Vendors and Affiliates safety is very important to Pellea and the health of the community. Please check the Safety Tips section on the Safety Tips page for more information.
Price Right: You may reasonably charge for your products or services. Vendors asking members for money towards paid products or services are allowed.
Leave References: The reference system allows members, vendors and affiliates to share information about their interactions with others enabling the community to make more informed decisions.
Vendors who have sold to members or members who have bought from vendors are permitted to give private feedback (to Pellea) and public references within 14 days after the offered products or services. Members must have a products or services request with the “Yes” “Maybe” or “Confirmed” status to leave a vendor reference. Other members may create references under the “Other” or “Friend” reference designations (as opposed to “vendor”).
References should be correct and relevant to the experience with the recipient.
Pellea does not generally interfere with reference content left by members, vendors or affiliates. In extremely rare circumstances, Pellea may censor, temporarily hide, or remove reference content if it violates our Reference Guidelines.
A reference may be censored, temporarily hidden, or removed in the following cases:
1. Order To Remove: We are served with a court or law enforcement order to remove the reference
2. Not The Author: The reference entirely reflects the experience of someone other than the author
3. False Reference: The reference is false, in a meaningful way, according to information in the Pellea system
Note: When contacting us regarding trust and safety, the reporter should provide the false statement, and details of the exact location of the evidence within the Pellea website.
4. Anonymous: The reference is anonymous
Note: For example, left from a blank profile that was created only to leave the reference.
5. No Contact: There has been no direct interaction, either offline or online over Pellea’s system, between the person writing the reference and the person receiving it
6. Multiple References: There are multiple references for the same confirmed visit from the same member, vendor or affiliate. In this case, we will keep the first “Vendor” reference left.
7. Private Information: The reference discloses private contact information, medical condition, or legal circumstance
If you’ve received a reference that falls under the above cases, please Contact Us. Please include a link to your profile, the name of the member, vendor or affiliate whose reference you are disputing, and the exact guideline(s) you believe this reference violates.
Pellea is generally unable to verify the accuracy of references describing offline interactions, and only act when a violation of this policy has occurred.
Pellea’s members, vendors or affiliates can only report references left on their own profile.
Note: Pellea’s staff reserves the right to remove any reference that undermines the integrity of the Reference System
Report Violations: If you feel another person is violating Pellea’s Policies, use the Flagging or Report tools available next to posts, events, messages, and on profiles. You can also Contact Us.

Our Services give a platform for members to learn about one another, arrange the offerings of product/services, engage in activities and communicate with one another. Pellea is not a party to, has no involvement or interest in, makes no representations or warranties as to, and has no responsibility or liability with respect to any communications, transactions, interactions, disputes or any relations whatsoever between you and any other member, person or organization. You are solely responsible for your interactions with other members of our Services. We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to check interactions between you and other members of our Services.

3.2 Identity Verification. We cannot and do not confirm each member’s identity. Although we give tools intended to help with identity verification, such as our address verification tool (as described in Section 3.3), you are solely responsible for determining the identity and suitability of others with whom you may interact through our Services. Pellea does not represent or permit that our tools are enough to decide whether it is right for you to interact with another member. Further, we do not endorse any persons who use or register for our Services.

Pellea’s address verification tool is not intended to confirm that a member actually resides at a particular address. While this is one of many ways to reduces the risk of misconduct by a member, it is not a guarantee of any member’s identity or good faith.
3.4 Member-Hosted Events; Pellea members may organize in-person meetings and host events for other Pellea members; however, these events are not sponsored or endorsed by Pellea and members attend such meetings and events at their own risk.

At Pellea Inc., we do everything we can to make sure you are happy with your purchase, but we know that sometimes a product or service is just not right. We’ve made our refund policy as easy as possible. For our refund policy see the sections below.
Thank you for shopping at Pellea Inc.
Please read this refund policy carefully. This is the Refund Policy of Pellea Inc. and is licensed by Pellea Inc.
Products or Services Requirements
We can issue members full-refunds, minus the service fee for products up to 14 days after the purchase date of the product and full-refunds, minus the service fee for services up to 1 day before the delivery date of the service.
We can issue members partial-refunds, minus the service fee for products from 15 to 21 days after the purchase date of the product and partial-refunds, minus the service fee for services up to 1 day after the delivery date of the service.
We, unfortunately, can’t issue members refunds for products more than 22 days after the purchase date of the product and refunds for services more than 1 day after the delivery date of the service.
To be eligible for a refund, your product(s) or service(s) must be unused. It must also be of the original purchase or delivery date.
To complete your refund request, we need a receipt or proof of purchase and refund reason.
Please do not send your receipt or proof of purchase back to the vendor (“merchant”).
We recommend contacting us for help if you experience any issues purchasing our products or services.
Once your refund request is received and reviewed, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received receipt or proof of purchase for our products or services. We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund.
If you are rejected, then Pellea Inc. will tell the member that the return has been rejected and no refund will be issued to the member. The member can choose one of the following options.
If you are approved, then your refund will be processed, and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment, within a certain amount of days.
Late or missing refunds
If you haven’t received a refund yet, first check your bank account again, then contact your credit card company. It may take some time before your refund is officially posted.
Next, contact your bank. There is often some processing time before a refund is posted.
If you’ve done all of this and you still have not received your refund yet or have any question about our Refunds Policy, please contact us:
