16. ADDITIONAL TERMS FOR THE SWITCHTRADER FOR SALE BY OWNER SERVICE
If you use or participate in the “For Sale By Owner” Service, the following additional terms apply:
Switch Trader.com r offers a “SWITCH TRADER.COMFor Sale By Owner” (“STFSBO”) service (“STFSBO Service”) whereby you may list your used vehicle for sale. When you offer a vehicle for sale through theSTFSBO Service, you must be prepared to sell that vehicle at the price you listed the vehicle, and have possession of the actual vehicle listed with the ability to transfer valid title. You are required to provide certain identifying and contact information, which must accurately identify yourself so potential buyers can communicate directly with you. You may not charge any potential buyer for information about any vehicle listed for sale on the STFSBO Service, nor may you use the STFSBO Service to promote, without our prior written permission, any other website, product or service. By using theSTFSBO Service, you represent, warrant, and covenant that (i) you are a motor vehicle dealer, (ii) you are listing a vehicle for sale in your capacity as an owner, employee or representative of a dealer, and (iii) you, or anyone acting on your behalf, can list more than one (1) vehicle for sale at a time. Listings may not appear for up to 24 hours following your submission of the vehicle.
TheSTFSBO Service is provided for informational purposes only. You alone are responsible for any sale or purchase transaction you engage in. We cannot (i) protect you from potential fraud or other misconduct, and (ii) assure that a seller has good title to the listed vehicle or that a buyer will supply good funds. Buyers and sellers need to exercise caution when using theSTFSBO Service, and for example should use the same approach they would use when using a classified ad service in a newspaper.
Information about a particular vehicle is supplied by the seller, not by Switch Trader LLC. The price and other terms of any sale are subject to direct negotiation between the buyer and the seller, and Switch Trader LLC plays no role in that negotiation. The prices listed by the seller on the FSBO Service often exclude sales tax, finance charges, title, license, regulatory, documentary, emission testing, and/or 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. We do not verify the information that sellers supply, nor guarantee the vehicles they offer. In an effort to combat Internet fraud, some listings may be screened before being posted publicly, which may delay display of your listing.
By listing a vehicle for sale on the STFSBO Service, you agree to use the email addresses of those responding to your listing only for purposes of communicating with them about the potential sale of that vehicle. Switch Trader LLCdoes not guarantee that a vehicle listed for sale through the STFSBO Service is available, as it may already have been sold. By accessing the FSBO Service, you agree not to use information concerning other users of the STFSBO Service, nor the vehicles they have listed or searched for on the STFSBO Service or otherwise expressed an interest in through the STFSBO Service (including listing information, user names, email addresses, telephone numbers, and/or other information), for any purpose other than in connection with the potential purchase or sale of a listed vehicle.
Switch Trader LLC reserves the right to deny use of the STFSBO Service to anyone who does not comply with these requirements or who otherwise uses the STFSBO Service in a manner we consider inappropriate. Responsibility for the information contained in each listing lies with each seller, and you alone are responsible for material you post and for the content of all email messages you transmit through the STFSBO Service. We may perform random or selective quality assurance tests to confirm that those who offer vehicles for sale through the STFSBO Service are prepared to sell listed vehicles at the specified prices and terms provided by the seller through the FSBO Service. By using the STFSBO Service, you agree to cooperate in these 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, Switch Trader LLC reserves the right to deny that seller use of the STFSBO Service.
THE SWITCH TRADER LLC ENTITIES DO NOT MAKE ANY REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY THAT YOU WILL SELL YOUR VEHICLE, OBTAIN AN ACCEPTABLE PRICE FOR YOUR VEHICLE, RECEIVE LEGITIMATE INQUIRIES OR SOLICITATIONS FROM QUALIFIED BUYERS, OR RECEIVE ANY INQUIRIES REGARDING YOUR VEHICLE FOR SALE.
