ReposinMaine.com User Agreement
You cannot use the Site to list items for sale unless you are a business entity that can enter into legally binding contracts under applicable law. You must register with us by providing your name, address, phone number and e-mail address, as well as any other identification information required by our policies or that we may request from time to time. As part of the registration process, you will choose your own password. You will be responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of that password and for restricting access to your computer, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your user name and password. We may terminate or suspend any listing, and we may terminate or suspend any registration, at any time, for any reason or for no reason at all, and without any notice to you or any other person. Some of the reasons that we might terminate or suspend a listing or registration are described in this agreement and in our policies, but those are not exclusive. You may not list any of the items described in our Prohibited Items Policy.
The site is a venue. It is an interactive service provider that allows sellers to offer and sell items, and buyers to bid for and buy items. We are an Internet service provider, and we are not involved in any transactions between buyers and sellers. Any actual purchase and sale is strictly between the buyer and seller. We have no control over the accuracy of the descriptions of items offered for sale on the Site. We are not the seller of any of the items listed on the Site, and we are not a traditional “auctioneer” of the items offered for sale. Without limiting the foregoing, we do not examine, set the price, or prepare the description of any property or service to be offered on the Site. We are not an agent or representative of any buyer or seller.
By using the Site, you agree that if you have a problem or dispute with another user of the Site, you release ReposinMaine.com and each of its officers, directors, employees, consultants, agents, subsidiaries and affiliates from any and all claims, demands, losses and damages (actual and consequential) of any kind and nature whatsoever, known and unknown, direct and indirect, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with any such problem or dispute.
We do not control or verify the descriptions or information users post on the Site. Some of the descriptions may be misleading or inaccurate. You may report misleading or inaccurate descriptions to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. There are risks in dealing with persons who may be underage or acting with intent to defraud. Please recognize that some users of the Site may not be trustworthy, and use caution in all of your dealings with others of the Site. By using the Site, you accept the risks of doing so, including the risks that buyers and sellers may fail to perform their obligations or otherwise act in inappropriate, unethical or unlawful ways, and you agree that we are not responsible for the acts or omissions of users.
We attempt to verify the accuracy of a portion of the information provided to us by users when they register with us. However, we do not confirm each user’s purported identity, and we cannot assure you that a purported buyer or seller you choose to deal with is who he or she claims to be or is not involved, knowingly or unknowingly, in fraudulent activity. We encourage you to communicate directly with your potential trading partners in order to evaluate them and to draw your own conclusions.
Buyers and sellers are responsible for arranging for the delivery of items and payment for items between themselves. We are not involved in either the delivery of any item to any buyer or the payment for any item to any seller.
We are not the seller of any of the items listed on the Site, and we are not responsible for collecting or remitting any state, federal or local or other taxes. Buyers and sellers are responsible for compliance with all applicable tax laws and for paying any applicable taxes.
You may not list any item described on our Prohibited Items Policy. By listing an item, you represent and warrant that you have the full legal right to sell the item and that your description of the item is truthful and accurate. You also agree that if you receive at least one bid equal to or greater than your stated minimum price or the reserve price you will sell the item to the highest bidder at the completion of the bidding, unless (a) the sale is prohibited by applicable law or this agreement, (b) the buyer fails to meet the terms of your listing, or (c) you cannot authenticate the buyer's identity. You must describe the item and your terms of sale on the listing page. Your terms of sale must include the payment methods you consider acceptable, shipping methods and who is to pay the shipping costs, any additional costs, and your return or refund policy. Your listing must be in an appropriate category, and may include only content relevant to the sale of that item. You may not include in the listing title or in your description any names or descriptions of things that are not the item you are listing or otherwise manipulate the listing description or search results in any deceptive manner. You may not advertise or describe any item or service except the item you are listing on the Site.
Our Prohibited Items Policy is a non-exclusive description of items that may not be listed on the Site. In addition to the items described, we reserve the right to refuse or delete any listing of any item at any time for any reason or for no reason at all.
