Terms and Conditions
Oko is intended to be a friendly, enjoyable and useful experience, but as with anything concerning any kind of transactions there are risks involved and we strongly advise you to understand all of these terms before joining. If you spot a listing that you feel is violating the general terms and conditions of Oko as stated below please let us know by contacting us.

This site acts as the window for users to conduct transactions and for bidders to bid on sellers' auctions, products or listings. We are not involved in the actual transaction between buyers and sellers. As a result, we have no control over the quality, safety or legality of the items listed the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of users to sell items or the ability of buyers to buy items. We cannot and do not control whether or not users will complete the sale of items they offer or buyers will complete the purchases of items they have bid on. In addition, note that there are risks of dealing with foreign nationals, underage persons or people acting under false pretense.
Oko shall not be responsible for any items sold through Oko, for any damage to items during transit or during the inspection period, nor for misrepresentations and/or breaches of contract by either buyer and/or seller. Oko shall not be responsible for the cost of procurement of substitute goods or any losses resulting form any goods purchased or obtained.
Oko assumes no liability for the content of the listings. However if you fall victim of a fraudulent transaction we will assist you as much as we can.
Job Listings Policies
You may use the Job board only for the purpose of seeking new employees or independent contractors for Your organization. You must select the duration of the Job Listing at the time of purchase. You may not edit the job title after You submit a Job Listing, so always double-check this information before submitting Your listing. You may, however, edit the job description field after the Job Listing has been published.
By agreeing to these Terms and Conditions, You represent that You have the authority to post the Job Listing on behalf of the entity offering the position described in the Job Listing, and that all information in the Job Listing is accurate and complete. You agree not to do any of the following:
- post or submit any incomplete, false or inaccurate information;
- post obscene, discriminatory, libelous, defamatory, sexually explicit, misleading or false information, or any other material that infringes on the rights of others or interferes with the ability of others to enjoy Oko's products and services;
- post any material or otherwise use the Job board in a manner that violates any applicable law, rule or regulation;
- post or transmit any material containing viruses, malware or any other disruptive or harmful component or material;
- post or transmit spam, including, but not limited to, unsolicited bulk email or duplicative messages;
- collect information about others without their express consent; or
- impersonate any person, or otherwise attempt to mislead others about Your identity.
In addition, You may not use our Job board to promote, without our prior written permission, any other website, product or service. We retain the right to deny access to anyone who we believe has violated these Terms and Conditions or who otherwise uses the Job board or any other Oko product or service in a manner we consider inappropriate.
These Terms of Service shall be governed by and constructed in accordance with the laws of the Cook Islands and any disputes will be decided only by the Courts of the Cook Islands.
Oko is happy to provide dispute resolution and address comments, questions, conduct, and issues regarding your experience on the site.
For inquiries and concerns about a listing or store, contact the user first. Even if you want to cancel an order or request updates on a purchased item, never assume and always message. There are honest people that get disorganized and professionals that get forgetful – but they want to hear from you so they can clarify and make things right.
However, after giving the benefit of the doubt and unresponsive for more than five business days, contact Oko. We’ll file an investigation and review.
Please include the following information:
• Identify yourself – name, username, e-mail, buyer/seller
• Username of the other party involved
• Order number
• Messages exchanged
• Explain the reason for submitting a report
