Transactions on the Site

The Site is a Venue

We do not own or manage, nor can we contract for, any Opportunity listed on the Site. The Site is a venue for facilitating the purchase, rental, leasing or licensing of Opportunities between Users. We are not a party to any agreement or transaction between Users. As a result, any part of an actual or potential agreement or transaction between Users, including the quality, condition, safety, or legality of the Opportunities advertised, the truth or accuracy of the Listings (including the Content thereof or any property or guest book review), the ability of a User to offer an Opportunity or to pay for one, are solely the responsibility of each User. You acknowledge and agree that you may be required to enter into a separate agreement and/or waiver prior to purchasing an Opportunity.

Listings

If you create a Listing, you must provide complete information for all required entries. Our Listings are made publicly available. You may not materially change any of the terms of the Opportunity (including the fee for the Opportunity) after another User has contacted you to negotiate the purchase, lease or licensing of the Opportunity. You are responsible for all Listings you post. You represent and warrant that you have the legal right to offer the Opportunity, that offering the Opportunity will not breach any agreement or understanding that you may have with any other person or entity and that another User’s purchase, lease or licensing of the Opportunity will not violate any laws. We disclaim any responsibility or liability that may arise out of or relate to the use of your property or services, and encourage you to obtain, maintain and understand the limits of your appropriate insurance therefor. We further disclaim any liability for any feedback that you may receive or that may be communicated to third parties regarding the User’s or any other person’s experience in utilizing the Opportunity, and consent to the posting of photos thereof, so long as such photos comply with the requirements of these Terms.

If you place a bid or contact the offeror of an Opportunity, you may not refuse to consummate the transaction on the terms stated in these Terms, any rules posted to this Site and in the Opportunity listing, if your bid is the winning bid. All payments for Opportunities purchased on the Site shall be remitted to the seller of such Opportunity. You agree that you will not bid on any Opportunity unless you can purchase it in accordance with all applicable legal requirements, and you agree that the use of the Opportunity will be conducted in compliance with all applicable laws. You represent and warrant that you are bidding on all Opportunities only for your own account and not for the benefit of any third party. If you negotiate for and purchase, lease or license any Opportunity, you acknowledge and agree that we have not vetted the identity of the User offering such Opportunity, his/her/its legal right to offer the Opportunity, or the Opportunity itself and the legality thereof. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO CONDUCT APPROPRIATE DUE DILIGENCE ON THESE ITEMS AND ANY OTHER OPPORTUNITIES OR SERVICES AVAILABLE THROUGH THE SITE, AND TO ENGAGE ADVISORS TO ASSIST YOU AS NECESSARY. You acknowledge and agree that any remedy you may seek arising out of or relating to an action or omission of another User will be limited to claims against such a User, and that you will not seek to hold Powderhook liable therefor.

Fees

You agree to pay the applicable fees for using the Site, which are subject to change at any time, and you understand that ALL FEES PAID TO US ARE NON-REFUNDABLE. All payments must be made in United States dollars. Any returned check is subject to a $25.00 returned check fee. Payment terms are net 20 days. Inactive accounts with credit balances will be charged $1.00 per month until such time as the account has a zero balance. You may avoid these inactivity fees by logging in once each six months. We reserve the right to require ACH, a deposit, or other form of payment guarantee for accounts that are habitually past due, are past due more than 90 days, or for any other reason we deem necessary.

Credit Cards and ACH Direct Payments

By placing a credit card or ACH direct payment account on file with us, you authorize us to charge your card or account for any fees you accrue as a result of using the Site. YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU HAVE THE LEGAL RIGHT TO USE ANY CREDIT CARD(S) OR OTHER PAYMENT METHOD(S) UTILIZED IN CONNECTION WITH ANY TRANSACTION. By submitting such information, you grant to Powderhook the right to provide such information to third parties for purposes of facilitating the completion of any transactions initiated by you or on your behalf, and to otherwise handle such information in accordance with the Powderhook Privacy Policy. Verification of information may be required prior to the acknowledgment or completion of any transaction.

We may also consolidate balances from any duplicate accounts you may have created on our Site and bill them to your card or account. You may revoke your authorization by sending us a written request to Powderhook, 315 S. 9th St. Suite 213, Lincoln, NE 68508. We may continue to bill your credit card or direct payment account for any fees for any services rendered or actions by you or by us taken prior to the receipt of your written revocation. Our billings may appear under the name “Powderhook” or “Powderhook.com.” BY USING A CREDIT CARD YOU HEREBY UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVE ANY AND ALL CHARGEBACK RIGHTS YOU MAY HAVE. If you have any question about a charge on your credit card, contact us as described in the Notices section below. If you deliberately or inadvertently issue a chargeback to your credit card, your account will be terminated and you agree to pay a $50 processing and collection fee.

Past Due Accounts

If a seller’s account is past due, we reserve the right to void, suspend and/or terminate his or her Opportunity Listings, and may terminate his or her account. If any User’s account is more than 30 days past due, we reserve the right to report this transaction history to credit agencies, as well as to void promotional offers, including free or discounted Listings. Accounts that are, or have been, past due will have their credit limit reduced to zero and past due balances will be subject to a late fee of 1.5% per month or the highest amount permitted by applicable law, whichever is lower. If you fail to pay the past due amounts, we may turn your account over to a collection agency and we reserve the right to pursue civil and criminal legal actions to the fullest extent allowed under the law. If your account is past due, you also must pay any and all collection costs (including collection agency fees, court costs and legal fees) we might incur in connection with your past due account.

Taxation

You agree that Powderhook bears no responsibility for the reporting, payment, collection and remittance of any sales/use tax, VAT tax, transaction tax, transfer tax or any other fee or tax that may be assessed on any sale or transaction conducted through the Site by any jurisdiction having taxing authority over the sale or transaction. You agree to defend, indemnify and hold us harmless from and against any and all liabilities, damages and costs that may result from inadequate reporting, payment, collection or remittance by you of any taxes relating to transactions conducted on the Site, except taxes imposed on or measured by our income.

Title, Possession and Ownership of Opportunities

You acknowledge and agree that we do not take title to or possession of any Opportunity (or any land, property or real estate therein) being sold on the Site, and we are not a principal in the transactions facilitated through the Site, nor are we your agent or an agent of any User. Because we are not and cannot be involved in dealings between Users of the Site, in the event that you have a dispute with another User, you hereby release us, our directors, officers, employees and agents from and against any and all claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential, and including attorneys’ fees) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code §1542, which says: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”

In the event we undergo a business transaction such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of our assets, your Personal Information may be among the assets transferred.  You acknowledge and consent that such transfers may occur and are permitted by this Privacy Policy, and that any acquirer of our assets may continue to process your Personal Information as set forth in this Privacy Policy.  If our information practices change at any time in the future, we will post the policy changes to the Site so that you may opt out of the new information practices.  We suggest that you check the Site periodically if you are concerned about how your information is used.

III.           HOW WE PROTECT INFORMATION

We implement security measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access.  Your account is protected by your account password and we urge you to take steps to keep your personal information safe by not disclosing your password and by logging out of your account after each use.  We further protect your information from potential security breaches by implementing certain technological security measures including encryption, firewalls and secure socket layer technology.  However, these measures do not guarantee that your information will not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed by breach of such firewalls and secure server software.  By using our Service, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to assume these risks.

IV.           YOUR RIGHTS REGARDING THE USE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

You have the right at any time to prevent us from contacting you for marketing purposes.  When we send a promotional communication to a user, the user can opt out of further promotional communications by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in each promotional e-mail.  You can also indicate that you do not wish to receive marketing communications from us in the “Settings” section of the Site.  Please note that notwithstanding the promotional preferences you indicate by either unsubscribing or opting out in the Settings section of the Site, we may continue to send you administrative emails including, for example, periodic updates to our Privacy Policy.

V.             LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES

As part of the Service, we may provide links to or compatibility with other websites or applications.  However, we are not responsible for the privacy practices employed by those websites or the information or content they contain.  This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by us through the Site and the Service.  Therefore, this Privacy Policy does not apply to your use of a third party website accessed by selecting a link on our Site or via our Service.  To the extent that you access or use the Service through or on another website or application, then the privacy policy of that other website or application will apply to your access or use of that site or application.  We encourage our users to read the privacy statements of other websites before proceeding to use them.
