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, visiting 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 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.
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 the use of the Opportunity will be conducted in compliance with all applicable laws. 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 or Entity 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 or Entity will be limited to claims against such a User or Entity, and that you will not seek to hold Powderhook liable therefor.
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
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, 317 S. 12th St. Suite 101, 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 PRO.” 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 an 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.
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) visible 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.”
