Fees

Joining www.classic-motorbikes.net and forum.classic-motorbikes.net is free. We do charge fees for using other services, such as listing items. When you list an item or 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 Policy are effective after we provide you with at least fourteen days' notice of them by email, by posting the changes on the www.classic-motorbikes.net site or via “My Messages”. We may choose to temporarily change the fees for our services for promotional events (for example, free listing days, introductory offers) or new services, and such changes are effective when we post the temporary promotional event or new service on the sites.

Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted in GB pounds sterling. You are responsible for paying all fees and applicable taxes associated with using our sites and services in a timely manner with a valid payment method. If your payment method fails or your account is overdue, we may collect fees owed using other collection mechanisms. (This includes charging other payment methods on file with us and retaining collection agencies and legal counsel, and for accounts over 180 days overdue, deducting the amount owed from your PayPal account balance.) You agree that we may issue you with invoices in electronic format by email.

Content

When you give us content, you grant us a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free right to exercise the copyright, publicity, trade marks, database rights and intellectual property rights you have in the content, in any media known now or in the future. In addition, you waive all moral rights you have in the content to the fullest extent permitted by law.

Liability

Nothing in this Agreement shall limit or exclude our liability for fraudulent misrepresentation, for death or personal injury resulting from our negligence or the negligence of our agents or employees or for any other liability that cannot be limited or excluded by law.

We do not review users’ listings or content. We have no control over and do not guarantee the quality, safety or legality of items listed, the truth or accuracy of listings, or other content posted by users on our site.

You accept sole responsibility for the legality of your actions under laws applying to you and the legality of any items you list on any of our sites.

Although we use techniques that aim to verify the accuracy and truth of the information provided by our users, user verification on the internet is difficult. www.classic-motorbikes.net cannot and does not confirm, and is not responsible for ensuring, the accuracy or truthfulness of users' purported identities or the validity of the information which they provide to us or post on our sites.

We cannot guarantee continuous or secure access to our services, and operation of our site may be interfered with by numerous factors outside of our control.

We (including our parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors, agents and employees) shall not be liable to you in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise for any business losses, such as loss of data, profits, revenue, business, opportunity, goodwill, reputation or business interruption or for any losses which are not reasonably foreseeable by us arising out of your use of our sites and services. Some jurisdictions do not allow the disclaimer of warranties or exclusion of damages, so such disclaimers and exclusions may not apply to you.

Third party rights

A person who is not a party to this Agreement has no right under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 to enforce any term of this User Agreement but this does not affect any right or remedy of a third party specified in this Agreement or which exists or is available apart from that Act.

Resolution of disputes

If a dispute arises between you and www.classic-motorbikes.net, we strongly encourage you to first contact us directly to seek a resolution by emailing info@classic-motorbikes.net. We will consider reasonable requests to resolve the dispute through alternative dispute resolution procedures, such as mediation or arbitration, as alternatives to litigation.

In our sole discretion, we may assign this Agreement in accordance with the Notices Section (but without your prior express consent), provided that we assign the Agreement on the same terms or terms that are no less advantageous to you.

Section headings are for reference purposes only and do not limit the scope or extent of such section. Our failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive our right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches. We do not guarantee we will take action against all breaches of this Agreement.

We may amend this Agreement at any time by email, via “My Messages” or by posting the amended terms on this site. Except as stated elsewhere, all amended terms shall automatically be effective 30 days after they are initially posted. This Agreement may not be otherwise amended except in a writing signed by you and us.

This Agreement sets forth the entire understanding and agreement between us with respect to the subject matter hereof.
