By using the Services in any manner, including but not limited to visiting or browsing the Site, you (the "user" or "you") agree to be bound by this Agreement, including those additional terms and conditions and policies referenced herein and/or available by hyperlink. This Agreement applies to all users of the Services, including without limitation users who are vendors, customers, merchants, contributors of content, information and other materials or services on the Site.
Effective October 11th, 2015: the Agreement is between you and Sidoop.
1. Our Marketplace Agreement
Sidoop acts as a marketplace to allow users who comply with Sidoop's policies to offer, sell and buy pet related goods within a fixed-price format. Online transactions are made by and between a Seller and a Buyer only. Sidoop is not directly involved in the transaction between buyers and sellers and shall not be considered as a party. Sidoop.com does not represent Seller or Buyer in any online transaction. Sidoop.com will not be responsible for the quality, safety, lawfulness or availability of the products or services offered under any online transaction and/or the ability of either Seller or Buyer to complete any online transaction. As a result, Sidoop has no control over, is not responsible for and does not guarantee the existence, accuracy, exactness, quality, safety, morality or legality of items listed, the truth or accuracy of users' content or listings; the ability of sellers to sell items; the ability of buyers to pay for items; or that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction or return an item. You agree that you will not hold Unleash Media Group, INC., Sidoop.com and our affiliates and agents liable for any losses, damages, claims, liabilities, costs or expenses arising from any online transactions, including any breach, partial performance or non-performance of the online transaction by the other party to the transaction.
Consequently, Sidoop does not transfer legal ownership of items from the seller to the buyer.
Sidoop cannot guarantee the true identity, age, and nationality of a user. Sidoop encourages you to communicate directly with potential transaction partners through the tools available on the Site. You may also wish to consider using a third-party escrow service or services that provide additional user verification.
You agree that Sidoop 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 Sidoop. You use Sidoop's service at your own risk.

3. Fees and Billing
Joining and setting up a store on Sidoop is free. Sidoop charges a percentage of the sale price when the item sells, also know as a transaction fee. The transaction fee is 7% of the item price. This percentage does not include the shipping cost or tax. Seller will also incur the typical Paypal transaction fee.
Sidoop's Fees Policy, which is subject to change, is incorporated into this Agreement by reference. Changes to the Fees Policy are effective after Sidoop provides you with at least fourteen (14) days' notice by posting the changes on the Site. In the event Sidoop 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 US Dollars (USD).
You are responsible for paying all fees and applicable taxes associated with using Sidoop.
4. Listing and Selling
Listing Description: All listings on Sidoop must be for sale. By listing an item on the Site you warrant that you and all aspects of the item comply with Sidoop's published policies. You also warrant that you may legally sell the item. You must accurately describe your item and all terms of sale in your Sidoop shop. Your listings may only include text descriptions, graphics, pictures and other content relevant to the sale of that item. All items must be listed in an appropriate category with appropriate tags. Each listing must accurately and completely describe the item/items for sale in that listing. If the "in stock" quantity is more than one, all items in that listing must be identical. Each unique item must have its own listing.

Sellers must create reasonable policies in good faith and must abide by such policies. All shop policies must comply with Sidoop's site-wide policies. Sellers are responsible for enforcing their own reasonable shop policies. Sidoop reserves the right to request that a seller modify a shop policy.
Binding Sale: Sellers are responsible for accurately listing their items, and buyers are responsible for reading the description of items before making a purchase. All sales are binding. The seller is obligated to ship the order or otherwise complete the transaction with the buyer in a prompt manner, 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.
Fee Avoidance: The price stated in each item listing description must be an accurate representation of the sale. Sellers may charge reasonable shipping and handling fees to cover the costs for packaging and mailing the items. Sellers may not charge excessive shipping fees or otherwise avoid fees. You may not alter the item's price after a sale for the purpose of avoiding Sidoop transaction fees, misrepresent the item's location, or use another user's account without permission.
