You agree not to impersonate any person or business or use a name you are not legally authorized to use. You authorize us to verify your information (including any updated information).

Function of the Site

The Site provides an online platform for Sellers to offer and sell products to users. Company is not involved in the actual transaction between the Buyer and the Seller. As a result, only the Seller, not Company, has control over and is responsible for sales transactions, including without limitation the quality, safety, availability, or legality of the items transacted; the accuracy of the information or specifications provided; and the ability of Sellers to deliver items promised. These Terms and the information provided by this Site in no way override the terms and conditions of your sale of any product or service except as specifically provided herein. We cannot ensure that a Buyer will complete a transaction or that a transaction will be completed in a satisfactory manner. We encourage you to communicate directly with Buyers through the tools available on this Site or by other commercially available means that you might normally use in conducting transactions.

You, hereby agree and acknowledge that there may be risks of dealing with people acting under false pretenses. Because user verification on the Internet is difficult, we cannot and do not confirm each Buyer’s personal or company information. We encourage you to use various means, as well as common sense, to evaluate with whom you are dealing. IT IS YOUR SOLE RESPONSIBILITY TO QUALIFY THE BUYER THAT YOU CHOOSE TO DO BUSINESS WITH.

You agree and acknowledge that you are fully assuming the risks of conducting any transactions in connection with using the Site, and that you are fully assuming the risks of liability or harm of any kind in connection with subsequent activity of any kind relating to products or services that you offer or sell through the Site. Such risks shall include, but are not limited to fraudulent schemes, delay or default in payment, cost miscalculations, breach of contract and transportation accidents. Such risks also include the risks that the manufacture, importation, export, distribution, offer, display, purchase, sale and/or use of products or services offered or displayed on the Site may violate or may be asserted to violate third party rights, and the risk that you may incur costs of defense or other costs in connection with third parties’ assertion of their rights, or in connection with any claims by any party that they are entitled to defense or indemnification in relation to assertions of rights, demands or claims by third party claimants. Such risks also include the risks that consumers, purchasers, end users of products or others claiming to have suffered injuries or harms relating to products sold by you in connection with using the Site may suffer harms and/or assert claims arising from their use of such products. All of the foregoing risks are hereafter referred to as “Transaction Risks.” Seller agrees that Company, its affiliates, representatives, and respective officers, directors, owners, employees, agents, and contractors (collectively “Company Parties”) shall not be liable or responsible for any damages, claims, liabilities, costs, harms, inconveniences, business disruptions or expenditures of any kind that may arise a result of or in connection with any Transaction Risks.

Offers and Sales

Sellers are obligated to sell goods at the agreed price to Buyers who meet the Seller’s terms. By listing an item, you represent and warrant to prospective Buyers that you have the right and ability to sell, and that the listing is accurate, current, and complete and is not misleading or otherwise deceptive. It is your responsibility to accurately describe an item for sale. Sellers are solely responsible for all transactions conducted on, through or as a result of use of the Site, including, without limitation, terms regarding payment, returns, refunds, warranties, shipping, insurance, promotions, fees, Seller Taxes (as defined herein), licenses, fines, handling, transportation and storage. Company, in its sole and exclusive discretion, reserves the right to impose additional restrictions and prohibitions.

Without limitation, you may not offer, sell, list, link to, or post any items or related materials (“Prohibited Products”) that:

  • Infringe any third-party intellectual property rights (including copyright, trademark, patent, and trade secrets) or other proprietary rights (including rights of publicity or privacy);

  • Are dangerous, including hazardous materials, recalled items, and weapons
  • Are racially, religiously or ethnically derogatory, or that promotes hatred, violence, racial or religious intolerance;

  • Do not offer a product or service for sale, such as advertisements solely for the purpose of collecting user information.

Any violation of these terms may result in immediate termination by Company of your right to access or use this Site.

Payments and Fees

We will collect and distribute funds received for sales, shipping, and estimated sales taxes pursuant to the Fee and Payments Policy, and we reserve the right to amend the Fee and Payments Policy from time to time in our sole discretion. We reserve the right to withhold any funds received pursuant to the terms of the Fee and Payments Policy, and as may be required to comply with applicable law.

Seller Taxes

It is the responsibility of the Seller to determine whether Seller Taxes apply to transactions and to collect, report, and remit the correct taxes to the appropriate tax authority. Company will use TaxJar to estimate the sales taxes that may apply to transactions based upon the Seller’s business address information. Seller agrees to provide accurate information regarding the Seller’s tax nexus. Company is only responsible for collecting and remitting to Seller the sales taxes that are estimated by TaxJar based on the Seller’s business address information. Other than as expressly stated above, Company is not responsible for collecting, reporting, or remitting any sales, use or similar taxes arising from any transaction. “Seller Taxes” means any and all sales, goods and services, use, excise, import, export, value added, consumption and other taxes and duties assessed, incurred or required to be collected or paid for any reason in connection with any advertisement, offer or sale of products by the Seller on or through the Site, or otherwise in connection with any action, inaction or omission of the Seller or any of affiliate of the Seller, or any of the Seller’s respective employees, agents, contractors or representatives.

Disputes

Because Company Parties are not involved in transactions between Sellers and Buyers, except for the collection of the Buyer’s payment and the remittance of payments to Sellers pursuant to the Fee and Payments Policy, if a dispute arises between one or more participants, Seller agrees to release and indemnify Company Parties from all claims, demands, actions, proceedings, costs, expenses and damages (including without limitation any actual, special, incidental or consequential damages), known and unknown, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in connection with such dispute. Because Company is not the agent of Seller and is not the agent of Buyer for any purpose, Company will not act as either party’s agent in connection with resolving any disputes between participants related to or arising out of any transaction. Company urges Sellers and Buyers to cooperate with each other to resolve such disputes.
