Trailspace Classifieds Rules
Trailspace Classifieds are intended for Trailspace members to buy, sell, and trade personally owned gear to other Trailspace members and visitors.
Trailspace Classifieds are intended for personal users only, NOT for commercial users.
Businesses or individuals posting on behalf of a business may NOT buy, sell, or trade gear in the Classifieds.
By posting an item to sell, you affirm that the item belongs to you and you are legally able to sell it on Trailspace.
By posting an item to sell, you affirm that you have accurately described it, the item matches the description and any images you post of it, and you have disclosed any and all defects and any information pertinent to the buyer or potential buyers.
Trailspace is NOT involved in any Classifieds transactions, and does NOT handle payments, guarantee transactions, provide escrow services, or offer "buyer protection" or "seller certification."
Trailspace does NOT verify or endorse any Classified ads posted by users.
Transactions between Trailspace members and visitors and other members and visitors are done at your own risk. Trailspace does NOT guarantee that the transactions members choose to engage in are safe and that the descriptions provided by sellers are accurate.
We do NOT recommend giving out any financial or personal information (bank account number, social security number, etc.).
We do NOT recommend buying used or previously owned climbing gear, especially climbing hardwear and ropes, or other safety equipment on which your life depends.
Trailspace, its administrators, and its moderators cannot provide assistance in dispute resolutions or otherwise become involved in Classifieds transactions.
Members who choose to buy, sell, or trade gear through the Trailspace Classifieds understand that Trailspace, its administrators, and its moderators are not liable for any loss or harm that may occur due to the use of the Classifieds forum.
A note about PayPal:
PayPal offers a "Friends and Family" money transfer option. This option is not intended for buy/sell transactions and does not include PayPal's buyer protection for purchases. A seller may want you to use that option so he/she can avoid paying PayPal its fees. However, if you use this option and what you get is not what you expected, you have no recourse for a refund through PayPal, which you otherwise would with a standard transaction. Read their rules and policies completely if you are unfamiliar with them.
