C. SWAPPY IS A SERVICE

Simply stated, any activities, information, content, data, games, services, assistance, support, functionalities or other features or benefits provided by Us to You, whether now or in the future, including through the Site, represent collectively, our “Services”. As an example, a specific type of Services that we currently offer consists of putting Sellers and Buyers together so that they may conduct transactions together based on any given set of rules that these may determine together (provided these comply with applicable laws). We do not sell nor buy anything. Similar to a telephone or Internet company, we are only a passive conduit and venue allowing Sellers and Buyers to communicate with one another and meet digitally to transact together.  At present, our Services allow You to participate, whether as Seller or Vendor, in purchase and sale transactions with one another under three different transaction formats, namely:

  1. Straight Purchase and Sale Transactions. Under this model, Buyers and Sellers buy and sell items at a pre-determined offering price. An example of this – and SWAPPY specific rules applicable to such transaction model – can be seen here.

 

  1. Timed Auctions. Under this model, Sellers conduct timed auctions allowing Buyers to make bid in the hope of eventually purchasing the coveted items on sale. An example of this – and SWAPPY specific rules applicable to such transaction model –  can be seen here.

 

  1. Live Auctions. Under this model, Sellers that are conducting live auctions from a brick and mortar location give Online access to their live auctions to  Buyers to allow them to make bid in the hope of eventually purchasing the coveted items on sale.  An example of this – and SWAPPY specific rules applicable to such transaction model –  can be seen here.

Our Services may include such services as putting various items and property up for sale using the Services, contacting or placing bids with Sellers via the Site, searching and accessing past and upcoming auction records and information as well as Seller and Buyer ratings and history, and so forth. Additional terms and conditions applicable to certain portions of the Services may be posted in relevant areas within the Site from time to time and will apply to You. Together with this Agreement, such additional terms and conditions will govern your use of those Services or any other services made available by Us to You.  Notwithstanding anything contrary in this Agreement, SWAPPY may at any time in its sole discretion, modify, change, alter, enhance, suspend, disable, terminate or discontinue any and/or all Services for any reason. The specifics of Services offered hereunder, as well as any additional terms, conditions, policies or restrictions applicable to its use and access from time to time are described and set forth on the Site, and it is Your responsibility to regularly review the Site to be familiar with these at all times.  As of the Effective Date, You hereby confirm that You have reviewed such specifics, additional terms, conditions, policies and restrictions, and that it You are familiar with and accepts these as being applicable and included by reference in this Agreement.

 

D. SWAPPY IS NOT YOUR COUNTERPART, WHETHER AS SELLER OR BUYER

While we have tried to be clear already on this critical point, we cannot stress enough the fact that You must understand and realize that SWAPPY is not involved in the actual transactions between our members/users or between any Sellers and any Buyers, nor in any ensuing or related services (such as shipping services, insurance, claims management, dispute resolution and the likes). If that was not clear enough, please understand that, for example, if and when you purchase any given item or property from any Seller, You are NOT purchasing it from Swappy, and as such, SWAPPY has no liability in respect thereof. Without limiting the generality of the above, We have and assume no control over and no liability for the quality or the legality of the items or property displayed on or offered through the Site or the Services, as to the value, reliability, truth or accuracy of the advertising or descriptions of such items or property, and so forth. It is therefore of critical importance that You understand that You are solely responsible for negotiating and putting in place, with Your counterparts that use the Services (whether as Sellers or Buyers), terms and conditions that are complete and adequate for You and appropriately cover all possible circumstances and eventualities. In the event that you have a dispute or claim with any other member/user as a result of Your use of the Services or your decision to enter into a purchase and sale transaction, you hereby acknowledge and agree to handle such claim or dispute yourself ans solely against and with the other member/use involved – not SWAPPY – and you further fully and irrevocably and forever release and discharge SWAPPY (and its officers, shareholders, directors, agents, parent, subsidiaries, subcontractors, joint ventures, and employees) from and in respect of any and all Claims (as defined in Section N), demands, losses, liabilities and damages (actual and consequential, direct or not) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with the above, the whole to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. Remember, SWAPPY is only a passive conduit and venue allowing Sellers and Buyers to communicate with one another and meet digitally to transact together; it is not involved in or responsible for the actual transactions between You and any other members/users, Sellers or Buyers, nor in/for any ensuing or related services (such as shipping services, insurance, claims management, dispute resolution and the likes). SWAPPY may monitor and review any communications between members/users using the Services, including in relation to any claims or disputes, and may elect, in its sole and entire discretion (and with no obligation or liability whatsoever), to participate in such exchanges and/or communicate to each party the contact and other relevant information of the other party that is on file with the Services, the whole as further set forth in Our Online Privacy Policy.  

 

E. YOU ARE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR DEALINGS WITH OTHER MEMBERS AND USERS, SELLERS, BUYERS AND THIRD PARTIES

Because SWAPPY is only a passive conduit and venue allowing Sellers and Buyers to communicate with one another and meet digitally to transact together, You remain entirely and solely responsible to put in place, contract for, agree and comply with a variety of terms and conditions with third parties. We have no control over and no liability for the quality or legality of the items displayed within our Services or on our Site, or as to the truth or accuracy of the descriptions of such items, upcoming auction events or auction results displayed therein. Also, and again by way of example only, we have no control over and no liability for the truth or accuracy of any listings, the right or ability of any Seller to sell or the right, the capacity or the ability of Buyers to buy any items. We have no control over and no liability on any buyer or Seller actually completing any transaction.  In addition and for example and without limitation, You are responsible, at Your sole cost and expense:

  1. 1. for providing, obtaining, procuring and maintaining, and for ensuring that all hardware, software, electrical and other physical requirements and equipment for Your use of the Site and the Services, including telecommunications and Internet access connections and links, web browsers, bandwidth and other equipment, programs and services required to access and use the Site and the Services, are compatible with the Site and the Services;

 

  1. 2. for satisfying yourself that the terms and conditions governing any purchase and sale transaction that You contemplate or enter into, whether as Buyer or Seller, are complete and adequate for You and appropriately cover all possible circumstances and eventualities to Your satisfaction, and for complying with such terms and conditions. Without limiting the generality of the above, You must agree with each Seller (or make yourself comfortable as to), without limitation and by way of example only, as to the following:

 

  1. (a) Each Seller may have particular eligibility requirements that must be met by You in order for You to have the right to participate in the sale/purchase of the item or property. You may be required to provide certain information included in Your account in order to participate to an auction, and You therefore agree to allow Us to provide any of Your account information to such a Seller whenever necessary, including for participating in auctions;
  2. (b) Each Seller in a live auction may charge a premium (in addition to the fee that a winning bid is required to pay above the auction price) as well as shipping, handling, insurance and other fees including applicable taxes, customs and so forth;
  3. (c) Each Seller may have different rules as to a broad variety of matters, including bid cancellations and lot and items modifications (and some lots that are made available on an auction floor may not be included in online live auction services); and
  4. (d) Whether the terms and conditions of the Seller are complete and adequate for You and appropriately cover all possible circumstances and eventualities.

 

  1. 3. for procuring separately all relevant ancillary services that you deem necessary or useful, including shipping services, warranty services, insurance, custom assistance, etc.; and

 

  1. 4. if You are a Vendor, for opening and maintaining in good standing a PayPal account as all fees hereunder are currently payable to SWAPPY using PayPal.

 

For Your information only, we have started putting together a series of potentially suggested good practices in relation to various aspects ancillary to using the Services. You may review these and use these to inspire You as to how You decide to take on and fulfill You responsibilities as to the above, including in relation to the negotiation and setting up of terms and conditions with other users and third parties.
