1 - USE OF THIS SITE
The material that appears on Spindys.com is for informational purposes only as well as for services that you request from us. Despite our efforts to provide useful and accurate information, errors may appear from time to time. Before purchasing a vehicle or other goods or services you've read about on this website, you should confirm any information (including the price) that is important to your purchasing decision. Spindys.com is not responsible for, and do not guarantee the performance of, any such vehicles, goods or services.
2 - BUYING, SELLING AND LOCATING VEHICLES
Spindys.com is a service hat provides a medium by which sellers can list cars through us and/or buyers can search inventory or request a car locator service. Information about a particular vehicle is supplied by the seller, not by us. The price and other terms of any sale remain subject to direct negotiation between the buyer and the seller and/or with Spindys.com as the mediator between the seller and buyer. The prices listed by sellers on our website often exclude sales tax, finance charges, title, license, regulatory, dealer documentary, emission testing and compliance fees, any or all of which may be added to the listed price to arrive at the final sale price of a particular vehicle. Though we hope that all who come to our site will act honorably and treat each other fairly, we can't verify the information sellers supply or guarantee the vehicles they offer. Nor can we assure the seller of a vehicle that the check he/she gets from the buyer isn't going to bounce. When using this website to find a buyer for your vehicle or a vehicle you can buy, we urge you to use the same common sense and good judgment you would use in selling a car through, or responding to, a classified ad in the newspaper.
Please educate yourself on fraud awareness before you buy or sell a car through a classified ad, whether on our site or in your local newspaper. There is no substitute for healthy skepticism and your own good judgment.
In connection with our efforts to combat Internet fraud, all listings come to us directly by the seller and are thoroughly screened before being posted publicly. We do not post unless we have been in contact with the seller in advance of posting publicly. This process may delay the display of your listing.
When you offer a vehicle for sale through our website, you must be prepared to sell that vehicle at the price at which, and the terms on which, you've listed it. You must have possession of the actual vehicle listed and the ability to transfer title. To list a vehicle for sale on Spindys.com, sellers are required to provide certain identifying and contact information. The information must accurately identify the seller and the method of contact must permit buyers to communicate directly with the seller or for Spindys.com to communicate with the seller. You may not charge any potential buyer for information about any vehicle listed for sale on our website, nor may you use our website to promote, without our prior written permission, any other website, product or service. The listings we make available are available only to private sellers who want to list their vehicles for sale, and are not to be used to advertise more than one vehicle per ad. For this reason, you cannot edit your vehicle's Year, Make, or Model once you've purchased your ad. Always double-check this information before submitting your ad. By using our "Selling" service, you represent that you are not a motor vehicle dealer, that you are not listing a vehicle for sale in your capacity as an owner, employee or representative of a dealer. We reserve the right to deny use of this website to anyone who does not comply with these requirements or who otherwise uses our website in a manner we consider inappropriate.
When you list a vehicle for sale through Spindys.com, we may obtain additional distribution for your listing through our relationships with other websites. At this time, neither Spindys.com nor any website through which we distribute your listing charges you any additional fee for this additional exposure. It's just added value from Spindys.com.
Responsibility for the information contained in each listing lies with each seller. You alone are responsible for material you post. Nothing will undermine a user's confidence in the vehicle you're looking to sell faster than inaccurate statements or misleading representations about the vehicle. And since any erosion of user confidence in you is likely to be accompanied by erosion of user confidence in us, we care deeply about making sure that the information you supply is accurate and that, in all respects, you treat users of site fairly and honorably.
Though at times we may not be able to monitor every transaction that originates through a listing on our site, we may perform random quality assurance tests to confirm that those who offer vehicles for sale over our site are prepared to sell the vehicles they advertise at the prices at which, and the terms on which, they advertise them. Photos submitted as part of any ad placed through the Sell Your Car service must correspond to the actual vehicle being offering for sale. If we encounter a photo that we believe does not accurately represent the actual vehicle you are offering for sale through our service, we reserve the right to immediately remove such photo(s) and/or your corresponding ad. By using our any of our services, you agree to cooperate in these random quality assurance tests. If our tests reveal, or we otherwise learn, that a seller is engaging in "bait and switch" or other unfair or deceptive practices, we reserve the right to deny that seller use of our website and service.
By placing an ad through Spindys.com, you agree to pay the fees specified regardless of whether your vehicle sells as a result of the listing. All fees will be applied against the form of payment you provide as part of the ad selection process and you agree to pay such fees. At our sole discretion, we reserve the right at any time to offer any of our services at a discount or to provide premiums and promotions as incentives, up to and including free services.
Any listing fees are generally not refundable, even if you provide erroneous information or fail to sell your vehicle.
3 - LINKS TO OTHER SITES AND SERVICES
For your convenience, we may make available a variety of links to other websites that we don't operate where you can obtain automotive related products and services. Although we encourage you to consult such websites we may list, we cannot guarantee the prices, terms, quality, reliability or performance of the products or services provided by these vendors. We are not responsible for the products or services these vendors provide. If you choose to purchase an inspection through such a third-party website, remember that an inspection is not a warranty. Although inspections can be of significant value in the purchase of a pre-owned car, an inspection is not a guarantee that the inspected car is free from defects or that the inspectors have identified all existing defects. Before you purchase inspection services, you should confirm with the inspector the location at which the inspection will be conducted, the scope and price of the inspection, and any other information you consider important to your decision. You are responsible for coordinating and arranging for the inspection. You release us and our affiliates from any damages that you may incur, and agree not to assert any claims against them, arising from your purchase or use of third-party supplied products and services.
