12. DISCLAIMERS OF WARRANTIES

In particular, the operation of the Websites may be interrupted due to maintenance, updates, or system or network failures. If Your use of any Websites or the Company Content results in the need for servicing or replacing equipment or data or any other costs, Company is not responsible for those costs. The use of all Websites and Company Content is at Your own risk. Company does not guarantee any specific results from the use of any Websites. No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by a User from Company or through or from any Websites shall create any warranty not expressly stated herein. In no event shall Company be liable for the deletion, loss, or unauthorized modification of any User Content.

Company does not provide warranties on the Gear purchased by Buyers. As part of Company’s Rules for Seller’s, Seller (not Company) will, unless specified on the Website or a Purchase Order, warranty to the Buyer that the Gear being sold is free from defects of material and workmanship for a period of 48 hours after delivery to the Buyer. Seller (not Company) will and hereby expressly warrants and represents to Buyer that the Gear to be delivered is the exact Gear being advertised by Seller on the Website and shall be in as good of working order as advertised.  Company does not warrant the accuracy of any information provided with the Gear on the Website, or through direct correspondence with Company personnel or those of the Seller.

You will not hold Company responsible for any user content, actions, inactions, or any items or services of any kind or nature that Company lists for purchase via the Websites or Company’s destruction of, or refusal to offer or sell any allegedly fake, counterfeit, or illegal items. You acknowledge that because Company is not an auctioneer or Seller’s or Buyer’s agent, Company has no fiduciary duty to any Seller or Buyer and is not responsible for obtaining for Seller or Buyer the highest or lowest price available for any Gear listed via the Website.   Instead, the Websites and all Company Services associated with it provided by Company merely serves as a venue to allow Sellers to offer and sell, as well as to facilitate Sellers’ offer and sale of the Gear.

While Company may help facilitate the offer and sale of the Gear and/or may help to facilitate resolutions of disputes among Sellers and Buyers, it has no control over the terms offered by Sellers or Buyers and does not guarantee the quality, safety or legality of any items advertised, offered or sold, the truth or accuracy of any statement made by any party in connection with any Listing, negotiation or transaction process, or the ability of any Seller to sell or any Buyer to buy, pay for or receive in a timely manner, any Gear listed or offered or sold via the Websites, or any related services, or that any Buyer or Seller of any kind or nature, will actually complete the transaction for the Gear, return the Gear or timely pay for such item.

To the fullest extent possible by law, in no event shall Company, its suppliers, or any third parties mentioned on any Websites be liable for any damages whatsoever (including, without limitation, incidental and consequential damages, lost profits, or damages resulting from lost data, lost employment opportunity or business interruption) resulting from the use or inability to use any Websites and the Company Content, whether based on warranty, contract, tort, or any other legal theory, and whether or not company is advised of the possibility of such damages.
