of Use Agreement
Acceptance of Agreement.
Wantcastr is a Venue.
Wantcastr acts as a venue to allow members who comply with Wantcastr's policies to place prices on and purchase products and services and for suppliers to sell products and services. Wantcastr is not directly involved in the transaction between buyers and sellers. As a result, Wantcastr has no control over the quality, safety, morality or legality of any aspect of the items listed, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of sellers to sell items or the ability of buyers to pay for items. Wantcastr does not pre-screen users or the content or information provided by users. Wantcastr cannot ensure that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction. Consequently, Wantcastr does not transfer legal ownership of items from the seller to the buyer. Wantcastr cannot guarantee the true identity, age, and nationality of a user. Wantcastr will use reasonable measures to ensure buyers that potential suppliers of the good or service are adequately prepared to complete transactions. These reasonable measures are limited to terms of service contracts between Wantcastr and qualified Suppliers which bind Suppliers to a specific delivery time, return policy, tiered shipping fees and item quality specification (new, unopened, as specified). Failure of Suppliers to abide by these agreements may result in their indefinite expulsion from use of Wantcastr. You agree that Wantcastr is a venue and as such is not responsible or liable for any content, for example, data, text, information, usernames, graphics, images, photographs, profiles, audio, video, items, and links posted by you, other users, or outside parties on Wantcastr. You use the Wantcastr service at your own risk.
Right to Refuse Service.
Wantcastr's services are not available to temporarily or indefinitely suspended Wantcastr members. Wantcastr reserves the right, in Wantcastr’s sole discretion, to cancel unconfirmed or inactive accounts. Wantcastr reserves the right to refuse service to anyone, for any reason, at any time. International usage may be partially or fully restricted due to international shipping laws and customs, as well as onerous shipping times.
No Spam, Spyware or Spoofing.
We and our users do not tolerate spam. Make sure to set your Wantcastr communication preferences so we communicate to you as you prefer. To report Wantcastr-related spam to us, please forward the email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You may not use our communication tools to send spam. We may automatically scan and may manually filter messages to check for spam, viruses, phishing attacks and other malicious activity or illegal or prohibited content.
Resolution of Disputes and Release.
Wantcastr, for the benefit of users, may try to help Buyer-Seller disputes. Wantcastr does so in Wantcastrs' sole discretion, and has no obligation to resolve disputes between users or between users and outside parties. To the extent that Wantcastr attempts to resolve a dispute, Wantcastr will do so in good faith based solely on Wantcastr' policies. Wantcastr will not make judgments regarding legal issues or claims.
Fees and Services.
Joining and participating in locking in prices and the purchasing process on Wantcastr is free for member buyers. Member sellers (suppliers) may browse Wantcastr pricing and quantity data for a fee which is structured as a monthly access fee based on category of goods. Suppliers also pay a fee for purchasing the contracts from Wantcastr. The fee is levied as a percentage of the total value of all contracts purchased. Wantcastr may choose to temporarily change the Fee and the fees for Wantcastr's services for promotional events (for example, initial supplier contracts with temporarily waived membership fees); such changes are made at Wantcastr's sole discretion, and will be made active through promotion specific contracts signed by Wantcastr and the supplier. In the event Wantcastr introduces a new service, the fees for that service will be made known and are effective at the launch of the service. Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted in US Dollars (USD). You are responsible for paying all fees and applicable taxes associated with using Wantcastr.
Fees and Termination.
If Wantcastr terminates a listing or your account, if you close your account, or if the payment of your Wantcastr fees cannot be completed for any reason, you remain obligated to pay Wantcastr for all unpaid fees plus any penalties, if applicable. If the supplier's account is not paid in full and becomes past due, the seller risks penalties such as the suspension of privileges and/or termination of the account and other collection mechanisms (including retaining collection agencies and legal counsel).
Locking and Buying.
Confirming a Lock Price: By entering a lock price, and confirming the exact product for which you are entering said lock price, you have entered a legally binding contract to purchase that item at a price no greater than the price entered by you if, and only if a supplier purchases your contract at a price less than or equal to the price entered by you. In this event, you have entered a legally binding purchase contract at the supplier’s unit purchase price, which in no circumstances can be higher than your final input price plus any applicable shipping fees. At this point, you will be required to input purchase information including credit card information, address, name and any other information necessary to complete the purchase transaction, which will be sent to the supplier for the purpose of completing the agreed upon purchase transaction. Failure to enter in the preceding information in the time period specified by Wantcastr may result in the indefinite expulsion of a user account.
Modifying a lock price on Wantcastr: Buyers may modify their lock price no more than one time per minute. Buyers may modify the lock price until their lock has been accepted by a supplier. At that point, the price is confirmed and the sale is binding.
Binding Sale: All agreed upon sales are binding. The seller is obligated to ship the order or otherwise complete the transaction with the buyer in a manner specified in the supplier’s contract with Wantcastr, unless there is an exceptional circumstance, such as: (a) the buyer fails to meet the terms of the seller's listing (such as payment method), or (b) the seller cannot authenticate the buyer's identity. The buyer is obligated to deliver appropriate payment for items purchased, unless there is an exceptional circumstance.
