Intoducing Site

For the avoidance of doubt, 'theClassified' are sites that allows users to advertise their products, and for interested parties to purchase such items. It effectively introduces parties to one another and 'theClassified' takes no direct part in any transactions that may arise between buyers and sellers. As such, 'theClassified' has no control over the validity of the goods being offered, their quality, ownership, legality or safety. Further 'theClassified' is unable to corroborate the ability of sellers to sell their goods or buyers to pay for them. 'theClassified' does not pre-screen users or content, and as such cannot ensure that a buyer or seller is bona fide and will complete a transaction. Users are responsible for checking that a valid transaction will occur before they proceed.

'theClassified' does not transfer legal ownership of goods bought and sold.

'theClassified' cannot guarantee the identity, age, nationality and authenticity of any users of its site. Where possible, you are advised to communicate directly with parties involved in a transaction; you may like to consider use of escrow services.

In no event shall 'theClassified' or its suppliers be liable for any damages (including, without limitation, damages for loss of data or profit, or due to business interruption,) arising out of the use or inability to use the materials on 'theClassified' Internet site, even if 'theClassified' or a 'theClassified' authorized representative has been notified orally or in writing of the possibility of such damage.

Registering with 'theClassified' is free and fees only become payable when you want to advertise:

  • Individual adverts may be placed on 'theClassified' based on fixed fees related to the duration of the advert being placed. You should refer to the latest pricing information that is published within the site.
  • Subscriptions/storefronts may also be purchased based on the type of selling you want to undertake. You are under no obligation to renew your subscription.

With each subscription you may advertise as many products/services as you like (subject to a reasonable usage policy). You can add, change and remove as often as you like within the duration of your subscription. Facility does exist to cease your subscription and renew again at a later date - while some content may be retained by the site, 'theClassified' does reserve the right to remove content within its housekeeping processes.

'theClassified' takes no percentage of any fees that result from a successful sale.

You may terminate your account at any time, but you will not be entitled to any refunds for remaining duration of your service. There are no additional fees for closing an account.

All fees are liable to VAT at the prevailing UK rate. VAT invoices will be available as required for the reclaim of taxes paid if due, but any such claim is solely your responsibility.


When you decide to advertise, be it on an individual basis or as the owner of a storefront via subscription, you agree to do so responsibly:

Description: You will fully and accurately describe the item, including any flaws or defects that buyers may need to be aware of. You will also make sure that the item has been correctly categorised within the'theClassified' structure of works for sale. You will not try to mislead or create false impression of the product/service.

Ownership: You warrant that you are legally entitled to sell the item and where necessary can provide appropriate supporting documentation such as a bill of sale. Other forms of proof of ownership may be required by buyers and you will be prepared to answer such requests in a timely manner.

Conditions of Sale: Should you have any particular conditions of sale e.g. regarding shipping; method of payment etc, then these should be included as descriptive notes within your advert.

Binding Sales: Should you agree to sell your item, subject to your or our terms and conditions, you must complete the transaction. As seller, you are obligated to ship the item, unless there are exceptional circumstances. Buyers are obligated to ensure payment is received by the seller.

Abuse: You should not advertise items that abuse 'theClassified' terms and conditions and that are, or may be construed as:

  • false or misleading
  • fraudulent, illegal or counterfeit
  • infringe on someone else's copyright, trademarks, trade secrets or other intellectual property rights
  • discriminatory; defamatory; libellous; threatening; plagiarised; obscene; child pornography
  • hidden code likely to cause harm to computer systems and networks
  • appear to create an impression of ownership; corroboration; sponsorship or endorsement by 'theClassified'
  • a violation of these terms and conditions

License: By advertising your items you do not confer any ownership rights to 'theClassified' but you do license them to promote and advertise your items, royalty free, though the website. This will inevitably result in search engines analysing and indexing your content, and in turn the creation, by parties unknown, of links to, and placement on, other websites and you acknowledge that this is outside the control of 'theClassified'.

Privacy: As an advertiser you are likely to become aware of personal information of potential buyers and site visitors. You will treat this data with appropriate discretion and subject to local laws regarding data protection and privacy.
