1.1 Lumi Inc. (“Lumi”) maintains the publicly available portions of the website located at lumi.com and all of its content (collectively, the “Platform”) for use by its customers. A “Customer” is a customer it has agreed to work with that will seek to or will purchase manufactured products (“Items”) through use of the Platform from third parties that, through use of the Platform, sell or offer to sell Items (“Suppliers”).
By accessing, using, and browsing the Platform, the Customer agrees to be bound by these CTOS. These CTOS govern the Customer’s use of the Platform, including but not limited to the use of quote and purchase opportunities, as well as the purchase and sale of Items via the Platform.
Each individual user of the Platform (“User”), such as the employees and agents of the Customer, agree to be bound by these CTOS on behalf of the Customer the User is associated with, and represents and warrants that they have the authority to agree to these CTOS on the Customer’s behalf.
These CTOS may be incorporated into other agreements such as agreements entitled “Order Terms and Conditions” located at lumi.com/terms/order.
In the event of a conflict in terms between these CTOS and those terms of the incorporating agreement (“Incorporating Agreement”), the terms of this Agreement shall supersede the terms of the Incorporating Agreement unless such other Incorporating Agreement specifically states otherwise.
These CTOS, and any related Incorporating Agreement, constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between the Customer and Lumi regarding the Platform. Any failure by Lumi to enforce any right or provision of these CTOS will not be considered a waiver of such right or provision, and the waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if agreed upon in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Lumi.
Lumi may periodically revise any of these CTOS. If a revision is material, as determined solely by Lumi, the Customer will be notified. The current version of these CTOS will always be posted on Lumi’s terms of service page located at lumi.com/terms/customer. By continuing to use the Platform after revisions become effective, the Customer is agreeing to be bound by the revised CTOS.
These CTOS form a binding contract between the Customer and Lumi with respect to the Customer’s access to and use of the Platform.
2.1 Quote requests submitted by the Customer via the Platform, or that should have been submitted via the Platform, are governed by these CTOS and the Order Terms and Conditions.
2.2 The Customer acknowledges that it may receive no responses to its quote requests, and that nothing herein is a guarantee of a response from Suppliers.
2.3 The Customer agrees that it shall only submit Quotes requests with the actual intention to purchase Items.

The Customer agrees that Lumi may provide this information to Suppliers for their consideration of what payment terms they may offer the Customer.

If not otherwise specified by the Supplier, the Customer agrees that payment for an order is due upfront and prior to the beginning of production. The Customer agrees to make payment for all orders though the Platform and the payment processors designated therein. With regard to orders, payment processors act on behalf of Suppliers and Lumi is not a payment intermediary. Payments must be made by the Customer through the Platform using ACH or credit card.
4.2 A valid default payment method is required to be maintained by the Customer on the Platform at all times. If payment is declined an additional fee may be assessed per charge attempt. Invoices that remain unpaid by the Customer will be automatically paid using the Customer’s default payment method 1 day after the invoice due date. Lumi may attempt to charge other payment methods on the platform if the default payment fails to process.
4.3 The Customer authorizes charges to the bank account or credit card on file. The Customer agrees that the Customer will be charged the full balance of all past due bills. The Customer agrees that payments with a credit card will incur a convenience fee. The convenience fee will depend on the type of credit card used, and reflect the current rates posted on the page located at lumi.com/manual/payment-methods.
The Customer agrees that this authorization will remain in effect until the Customer cancels it in writing, and the Customer agrees to notify Lumi in writing of any changes in the Customer’s account information or termination of this authorization at least 15 days prior to the next billing date. If the past due balance(s) fall on a weekend or holiday, the Customer agrees that the payments may be executed on the next business day.
The Customer agrees that notification of bills becoming due will be sent to the accounts payable email address on file.
4.4 In the case of an ACH Transaction being rejected for Non-Sufficient Funds (“NSF”), the Customer agrees that Lumi may, at its sole discretion, attempt to process the charge again within 3 business days. The Customer also agrees to an additional $25.00 charge for each attempt returned as NSF which will be initiated as a separate transaction from the authorized payment(s). The Customer agrees that the origination of ACH transactions to the account on file must comply with the provisions of U.S. law. The Customer agrees it will not dispute any transactions referred to herein with the Customer’s bank or credit card company, so long as the transactions correspond to the terms indicated in herein.
5.1 In the event of a breach of these CTOS or a dispute as to the meaning of these CTOS, the Customer and Lumi agree to expeditiously attempt to resolve such dispute as set forth in this Section.
