If you are a business, government, or non-profit entity, the person whose e-mail address is associated with the account at the time of registration must have the authority to bind you to this Agreement.
If you are under the Age of Majority then you must obtain the permission of your parent or legal guardian prior to registering an account. Your parent or legal guardian will then be responsible for your online conduct, and the consequences of any misuse of the Site.

Tradalaxy shall have the right, but no obligation, to monitor the content and your activities on the Site and/or Services to determine compliance with these Terms and any other operating rules we establish. We reserve the right at all times to disclose any information we believe necessary to satisfy any law, regulation or governmental request, or to refuse to post or to remove any information or materials, in whole or in part, or to refuse any purchase orders that in Tradalaxy''s sole discretion is inappropriate, objectionable or in violation of these Terms.

Any fee so payable will remain payable and your failure to pay such fee within a reasonable time shall be deemed to constitute a breach of your agreement with Tradalaxy and may result in legal action. Furthermore, your failure to pay any such fee shall be a ground for termination of your license to use the Site.

By submitting a product for sale through the Site (a “User Product”), you represent and warrant that:
Tradalaxy maintains reasonable safeguards and personnel policies that are designed to guard the Site, the Services, our systems and our sellers’, customers’, business partners’ and others’ information. For example, for the security of your online visit to the Site, Tradalaxy may make use of firewall barriers, encryption techniques and/or authentication procedures.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be absolutely secure. As a result, while Tradalaxy strives to protect your information, it cannot ensure or warrant the security of any Content you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. In the event of a breach of the confidentiality or security of your personal information, Tradalaxy will notify you as necessary so you can take appropriate protective steps.

These Terms are in addition to, and do not nullify, any other agreement between you and Tradalaxy or any other applicable terms and conditions found on the Site. In the case of any direct conflict between these Terms and any other agreement between you and Tradalaxy, the provisions of such other agreement shall prevail but only to the extent applicable to the conflicting provisions.

No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment is created as a result of the Terms and you have no authority of any kind to bind Tradalaxy in any respect whatsoever. The failure of any party to exercise in any respect any right provided for herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. Tradalaxy shall not be liable for any failure to perform its obligations hereunder, where such failure results from any cause beyond Tradalaxy''s reasonable control, including, without limitation, mechanical, electronic or communications failure or degradation (including “line-noise” interference). Tradalaxy may transfer, assign or delegate the Terms and its rights and obligations without consent.
Any of these Terms which by its nature should survive termination, including, without limitation, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability, shall survive termination and continue in full force and effect except to the extent expressly set out in these Terms.
