1. General Provisions
2. Buying and Selling
The Website is a classified ad search engine and listing service that brings together buyers and sellers. Information about a particular item, animal or service is supplied by the seller, not by Thoroughbred Showcase, Inc., Thoroughbred Showcase, Inc. will not be a party to any transaction between a buyer and seller based upon information posted on the Website. At no time does.com, Thoroughbred Showcase, Inc. take title to any of the goods or animals offered for sale on the Website. The price and other terms of any sale remain subject to direct negotiation between the buyer and the seller. The prices listed by sellers on the Website may exclude other charges which may be added to the listed price to arrive at the final price of a particular item. Though we hope that all who come to this Website will act honorably and treat each other fairly, we can't verify the information sellers supply or guarantee or warranty the products, animals, or services they offer. Nor can we assure the seller that the check he/she gets from the buyer isn't going to bounce or the payment be fraudulent. When using this Website to find a buyer for your item, animal or service, or an item, animal or service you can buy, we urge you to use the same common sense and good judgment you would use in selling an item, service or animal through, or responding to, a classified ad in the newspaper or other publication. There is no substitute for healthy skepticism and your own good judgment. We strongly suggest you obtain the services of a Veterinarian or other qualified individual, as applicable, to evaluate any animal or item you are considering.
When you place an ad on this Website, you must be prepared to sell the item, animal, or service in the ad at the price at which, and the terms on which, you've listed it. You must have possession of the actual item or animal listed and the ability to transfer ownership. To list an item, animal or service for sale on the Website, sellers are required to provide certain identifying and contact information. The information must accurately identify the seller and the method of contact must permit buyers to communicate directly with the seller. You may not charge any potential buyer for information about any item, animal or service listed for sale on the Website, nor may you use the Website to promote, without our prior written permission, any other Website, product or service. Thoroughbred Showcase, Inc. reserves the right to deny use of the Website to anyone who does not comply with these requirements or who otherwise uses the Website in a manner we consider, in our sole discretion, inappropriate.
Responsibility for the information contained in ads lies with each seller. You alone are responsible for material you post and for the content of all email messages transmitted through the Website. Nothing will undermine a user's confidence in the item you're looking to sell faster than inaccurate statements or misleading representations about the item. Since any erosion of user confidence in you is likely to be accompanied by erosion of user confidence in us, we care deeply about making sure that the information you supply is accurate and that, in all respects, you treat Website users fairly and honorably.
Though we don't monitor transactions that originate on the Website, we reserve the right to perform random quality assurance tests to confirm that those who offer items, animals, or services for sale over the Website are prepared to sell the items, animals, or services they advertise at the prices at which, and the terms on which, they advertise them. By placing an ad on our Website, you agree to cooperate in any such random quality assurance tests. If our tests reveal, or we otherwise learn, that a seller, in our sole discretion, is engaging or intends to engage, in unfair or deceptive practices, Thoroughbred Showcase, Inc. reserves the right to deny that seller use of this Website and our ad services.
By placing an Ad on our Website, you agree to pay the fees specified for the service you select, regardless of whether your item, animal, or service sells as a result of the listing. Take care in selecting your Ad type and submitting your Ad information; listing fees are not refundable, even if you provide erroneous information or fail to sell your animal, item or service.
