Advertisers

PropellaPage's policies are rules and guidelines that help to create a safe, fair and enjoyable trading environment for all members. As an advertiser you are responsible for reviewing and understanding these policies as well as applicable laws and regulations.

Advertisers cannot:

  • Bid for advertising without paying; or
  • Engage in shill bidding to increase an items price or apparent desirability artificially.

Refund Policy

There are no refunds. Once the winning bid has been accepted it cannot be retracted so make sure when asked to confirm any bid that you are sure you want to. If the display of ads do not appear as you expect them to contact us.

Abusing PropellaPage

PropellaPage and the PropellaPage community work together to keep the site working properly and the community safe. Please report problems, offensive content, and policy breaches to us and we will investigate.

Without limiting other remedies, we may issue you with warnings, limit, suspend, or terminate our services and your account, restrict your access to, and your activities on, the site (including, without limitation, by canceling bids and removing listings), warn the PropellaPage community not to transact with you and/or take technical and legal steps to stop you from using the site if:

  • we think that you are creating problems (including, without limitation, by harassing
  • PropellaPage staff or other users) or exposing us or another PropellaPage user to financial loss or legal liabilities;
  • we think that you are acting inconsistently with the letter or spirit of these terms and Conditions or our policies;

You agree not to hold PropellaPage responsible for any loss you may incur as a result of PropellaPage taking any of the actions described above.

No Spam

We do not tolerate spam (unsolicited commercial communications). You may not use the site to post, display or send spam or content that would breach our terms and conditions. To report spam from other PropellaPage users, please contact us.

Fees

Joining PropellaPage and posting and rating websites and bidding to pay for adverts is free. There is currently a minimum bid amount of £5. Unless otherwise stated all fees are payable in Pounds Sterling (GBP) and converted to this currency where appropriate. You are responsible for paying all fees and applicable taxes (including any value added tax) associated with using the site in a timely manner with a valid payment method. If your payment method fails or your account is overdue, we may collect fees owed using other collection mechanisms. (This includes, without limitation, charging other payment methods on file with us and retaining collection agencies and legal advisers.) You agree that we may issue you with invoices in electronic format by e-mail.

Liability

Nothing in these terms and conditions shall limit or exclude our liability for fraudulent misrepresentation, for death or personal injury resulting from our negligence or the negligence of our agents or employees or for any other liability that cannot be limited or excluded by law.

You will not hold PropellaPage responsible for other users' actions or inactions. Although PropellaPage is often referred to as an online auction web site, you acknowledge that we are not a traditional auctioneer. Instead, the site is a venue to allow anyone to buy advertising to sell goods and services. At no point do we have possession of anything listed or sold through the site.

We do not review the bidding process. You will not hold PropellaPage responsible for actions or omissions that occur as a result.

We have no control over, do not guarantee, and you will not hold us responsible for:

  • the quality, safety or legality of items advertised;
  • the truth or accuracy of adverts or posted sites;
  • the truth or accuracy of ratings or other content posted by users on the site;
  • the ability of advertisers to sell items; or
  • the ability of buyers to pay for items;

Please do not assume that the offer, sale, purchase, export or import of any item is valid and legal simply because it is advertised on the site.

You accept sole responsibility for the legality of your actions under laws applying to you and the legality of any items you advertise on the site.

PropellaPage cannot and does not confirm, and is not responsible for ensuring, the accuracy or truthfulness of users' purported identities or the validity of the information which they provide to us or post on the Site.

We cannot guarantee continuous or secure access to our services, and operation of the site may be interfered with by numerous factors outside of our control. While we will use our reasonable endeavors to maintain an uninterrupted service, we cannot guarantee this and we do not give any promises or warranties (whether express or implied) about the availability of our services.

We shall not be liable to you in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise for any business losses, such as loss of data, profits, revenue, business, opportunity, goodwill, reputation or business interruption or for any losses which are not reasonably foreseeable by us arising out of your use of our Site.

Release

If you have a dispute with one or more users, you release us (and our officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.
