  11. GoCollect is a Venue

    GoCollect is not an agent, broker, distributor, or go-between of any sort
    Although we are commonly referred to as a buying, selling and trading web site, it is important to realize that we do not set up sales or trades, we merely facilitate them. Instead, this web site acts as a venue to allow its users to buy, sell and trade any item in our collection archives. We are not involved in the actual transaction between fellow buyers, sellers and traders. As a result, we have no control over the quality, safety or legality of the items bought, sold or traded, the truth or accuracy of the listings, or the ability of buyers, sellers or traders to engage in these transactions. We cannot ensure that a seller or trader will actually complete a transaction. Consequently, we do not transfer legal ownership of items from the seller to the buyer, and nothing in these Terms of Use shall modify the governing provisions of Uniform Com. Code § 2-401(2), under which legal ownership of an item is transferred upon physical delivery of the item to the buyer by the seller.

    Identity Verification
    We use many techniques to verify the accuracy of the information our users provide us when they register on this web site. However, because user verification on the Internet is difficult, GoCollect cannot and does not confirm each user's purported identity. Thus, we have established a user-initiated feedback system to help you evaluate with whom you are dealing. We also encourage you to communicate directly with potential transaction partners through the tools available on this web site.

    Release
    Because GoCollect is a venue, in the event that you have a dispute with one or more users, you release GoCollect (and our officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.

    Information Control
    We do not control the information provided by other users that is made available through our system. You may find other user's information to be offensive, harmful, inaccurate, or deceptive. Please use caution and common sense when using this web site. Please note that there are also risks of dealing with underage persons or people acting under false pretense. By using this web site, you agree to accept such risks and GoCollect is not responsible for the acts or omissions of users on this web site.

  12. Listing/Seller Obligations and Guidelines

    GoCollect's Fees and Credit Policy
    Changes to the Fees and Credits Policy and the fees for our services are effective after GoCollect provides you with at least fourteen (14) days' notice of the changes by posting the changes on GoCollect. However, GoCollect may choose to temporarily change GoCollect's Fees and Credits Policy and the fees for GoCollect's services for promotional events and such changes are effective when GoCollect posts the temporary promotional event on GoCollect. GoCollect may, at GoCollect's sole discretion, change some or all of GoCollect's services at any time. In the event GoCollect introduces a new service, the fees for that service are effective at the launch of the service. Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted in U.S. Dollars (USD). You are responsible for paying all fees associated with using GoCollect's service and GoCollect and all applicable taxes. Fees for our services will be described once they are determined.

    Listing Description: You must be legally able to sell the item(s) you list for sale on this web site. You must describe your item and all terms of sale on the listing page of this web site. Your listings may only include text descriptions, graphics, pictures and other content relevant to the sale of that item. All listed items must be listed in the appropriate collection and associate with the appropriate item in that collection's archive. Each listing must accurately and completely describe the item/items for sale in that listing. Each unique item must have its own listing.

    Termination: Without limiting any other remedies, GoCollect, without notice, may suspend or terminate your account if GoCollect suspects, in its sole discretion, that you (by information, investigation, conviction, settlement, insurance or escrow investigation, or otherwise) have violated any of GoCollect's policies set out in these Terms of Use, the Privacy Policy, or any other policy documents or community guidelines, or you have engaged in an improper or fraudulent activity in connection with GoCollect.

    Manipulation: The price stated in each GoCollect Item Description must be an accurate representation of the sale. Manipulation refers to activities whereby the price no longer accurately represents the monetary value of the transaction. For example manipulative activities include, but are not limited to, intentionally stating one price in the Item Description but charging a higher price to the buyer, altering the item's price prior to a sale for the purpose of avoiding GoCollect transaction fees, and hacking into another's account and altering prices. Neither buyer nor seller, may manipulate the price of any item for any reason.

  13. Trading Guidelines

    Accepted Trades
    As a trader you are obligated to complete all trades you have accepted and initiated, that have been completed.

    By accepting a trade you agree to be bound by the Terms of Trade included in the trade's Details of Proposal, as was determined amongst the traders involved in the trade, so long as those Terms of Trade are not in violation of these Terms of Use or unlawful. Unless you and your fellow trader agree otherwise, you will become the lawful owner of the item(s) involved in the trade upon physical receipt of the item(s) from the seller, in accordance with Uniform Com. Code § 2-401(2). Accepted trades are not retractable except in exceptional circumstances, such as: when your trade partner materially changes the item's description after you accept; a clear typographical error is made. If you choose to trade for mature audience items or items that are restricted to adult use, you are certifying that you have the legal right to purchase such items.

  14. Reservation of Rights

    The site editor reserves all of the site editor's rights, including but not limited to any and all copyrights, trademarks, patents, trade secrets, and any other proprietary right that the site editor may have in respect of this web site, its content, and goods and services that may be provided.

Get the most out of your chirps with these few tips:

  1. Use @username to mention a specific user.
  2. Use @GCIN (replace GCIN with the proper number) to mention an individual item.
  3. Use #subdomain to mention a specific collection. To find the subdomain of a collection, simply look up in your browser's address bar. The subdomain is the letters that follow the 'http://', but come before the '.gocollect.com'. For example, the subdomain for comics.gocollect.com would just be comics (used as #comics).
  4. Use a hashtag (#) directly in front of a word to make it a search link.
