Abusing uniTender
uniTender works to keep its sites and services working properly and its users safe. Please report problems and policy violations to us. If you believe that your intellectual property rights have been violated, please notify us and we will investigate. Without limiting other actions, we may limit, suspend or terminate our service and user accounts, prohibit access to our site and their content, services and tools, delay or remove content, and take technical and legal steps to keep users off the site if we think that they are creating problems or possible legal liabilities, infringing the intellectual property rights of third parties, or acting inconsistently with this User Agreement. We also reserve the right to cancel unconfirmed accounts or accounts that have been inactive for a long time, or to modify or discontinue uniTender sites, services or tools.

Buyer and Seller Protection
Buyers and sellers share the responsibility for making sure transactions facilitated by uniTender are rewarding and hassle-free.
In case of dispute, we strongly encourage buyers to work with sellers before opening a claim relating to a transaction.
The user agrees that using uniTender to facilitate a transaction does not consitute a transaction by itself. The use of uniTender to facilitate a transaction assumes that prior to the auction the buyer and seller conditions are agreed by all participants and are specific to the auctionned contract.
Bidding or organizing an auction using uniTender's auction services are not binding transactions. The auction organizer and participants agree that prior to any auction hosted by uniTender, the binding nature of the auction should be clarified among buyers and bidders.
As such, uniTender cannot take part in solving any disputes emerging from any transactions, or lack of transactions, among the users of uniTender site, services or tools.
Users agree that uniTender's role in a resolution process is limited to clarifing in writing (e-mail) the relevant time of auction open, close or suspension, as well as the bids value and time. Moreover, users agree that uniTender.com may charge up to USD 100.00 for each information request per auction.

Fees and Services
Registring with uniTender for auctionning or bidding is free.
We charge fees for using some services, like advanced auctions. When you use a service that has a fee, you have an opportunity to review and accept the fees that you will be charged, which we may change from time to time. Changes to that fees are effective immediatly upon acceptance.
We may choose to temporarily change the fees for our services for promotional events or new services, without a bidding nature for future orders.
Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted in U.S. Dollars. You are responsible for paying all fees and applicable taxes associated with our site and services in a timely manner with a valid payment method. If your payment method fails or your account is past due, we may collect fees owed using other collection mechanisms. This includes charging other payment methods on file with us or retaining collection agencies and legal counsel.

Content
When you give us content, either by inputing text or uploading a file to our server, you grant us a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, sublicensable right to exercise any and all copyright, trademark, publicity, and database rights (but no other rights) you have in the content, in any media known now or in the future.


Advice
Some content in uniTender.com may be wrongly interpreted as advice, rather than common-sense statements. If you think that any statements or other content on uniTender site may be wrongly interpreted you have the obligation to inform us. The user of uniTender.com agrees that it shall not consider any content on uniTender.com as business advice, consultancy or any other form of speciallized information, thus releasing uniTender.com from any liabilities related to mis-information.


Limitation of Liability
You will not hold uniTender responsible for other users content, actions or inactions, items they list or their deletion of items.
You acknowledge that we are not a traditional auctioneer. Instead, our sites are venues to allow anyone to offer, sell, and buy just about anything, at anytime, from anywhere, in a variety of pricing formats and locations, such as stores, fixed price formats and auction-style formats.
We are not involved in the actual transaction between buyers and sellers.
While we may help facilitate the resolution of disputes through information disclosure, we have no control over and do not guarantee the quality, safety or legality of items advertised, the truth or accuracy of users’ content, the ability of sellers to sell items, the ability of buyers to pay for items, or that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction or return an item.
For all auctions, a bid or offer initiates a non-binding transaction representing a buyer’s or seller's reasonable expression of interest in buying or selling the seller’s or buyer's item and does not create a formal contract between the buyer and the seller.
Buyers and Sellers (Users) agree irrevocably that uniTender.com does not transfer legal ownership of items from the seller to the buyer.
Further, we cannot guarantee continuous or secure access to our site, services or tools, and operation of our sites, services or tools may be interfered with by numerous factors outside of our control. Accordingly, to the extent legally permitted, we exclude all implied warranties, terms and conditions. We are not liable for any loss of money, goodwill or reputation, or any special, indirect or consequential damages arising, directly or indirectly, out of your use of or your inability to use our sites, services and tools.
Some jurisdictions do not allow the disclaimer of warranties or exclusion of damages, so if these disclaimers do not apply to you, then you agree not to use uniTender.com site, services or tools.
Regardless of the previous paragraphs, if we are found to be liable, our liability to you or to any third party is limited to the total fees you paid to us in the 3 months prior to the action giving rise to the liability.
