2. Your Content

Content that you post using our Services is your content (so let’s refer to it as “Your Content”). We don’t make any claim to it, which includes anything you post using our Services (like company name, profile image, photos, listing descriptions, reviews, comments, videos, usernames, etc.).

A. Responsibility for Your Content. You understand that you are solely responsible for Your Content. You represent that you have all necessary rights to Your Content and that you’re not infringing or violating any third party’s rights by posting it.

B. Permission to Use Your Content. By posting Your Content through our Services, you grant Warrington Marketplace a license to use it. We don’t claim any ownership to Your Content, but we have your permission to use it to help Warrington Marketplace function and grow. That way, we won’t infringe any rights you have in Your Content and we can help promote your stuff. For example, you acknowledge and agree Warrington Marketplace may offer you or Warrington Marketplace buyers promotions on the Site, from time to time, that may relate to your listings

C. Rights You Grant Warrington Marketplace. By posting Your Content, you grant Warrington Marketplace a non-exclusive perpetual license to use, display, edit, store and distribute Your Content. This allows us to provide the Services and to promote Warrington Marketplace. For example if you provide a photo of a listing on your Warrington Marketplace shop, we have permission to display it to buyers, and we can resize it so it looks good to a buyer.

D.

If content that you own or have rights to has been posted to the Services without your permission and you want it removed, please content us on hello@warringtonmarketplace.co.uk. If Your Content is alleged to infringe another person’s intellectual property, we will take appropriate action, such as disabling it if we receive proper notice or terminating your account if you are found to be a repeat infringer. We’ll notify you if any of that happens.

E. Inappropriate, False, or Misleading Content. This should be common sense, but there are certain types of content we don’t want posted on Warrington Marketplace’s Services (for legal reasons or otherwise).

5. Warranties and Limitation of Liability (or the Things You Can’t Sue Us For)

Items You Purchase. You understand that Warrington Marketplace does not manufacture, store, or inspect any of the items sold through our Services. We provide the venue; the items in our marketplaces are produced, listed, and sold directly by independent sellers, so Warrington Marketplace can’t and does not make any warranties about their quality, safety, or even their legality. Any legal claim related to an item you purchase must be brought directly against the seller of the item. You release Warrington Marketplace from any claims related to items sold through our Services, including for defective items, misrepresentations by sellers, or items that caused physical injury (like product liability claims).

However, you understand that we do not screen users of our Services, and you release us from all liability relating to your interactions with other users. Please be careful and exercise caution and good judgment in all interactions with others, especially if you are meeting someone in person.

Third-Party Services. Our Services may contain links to third-party websites or services that we don’t own or control (for example, links to Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest). You may also need to use a third party’s product or service in order to use some of our Services (like a compatible mobile device to use our mobile apps). When you access these third-party services, you do so at your own risk. The third parties may require you to accept their own terms of use. Warrington Marketplace is not a party to those agreements; they are solely between you and the third party.
