||Terms and Conditions
GozBay is designed to create an open and enjoyable experience, but it also has limits and risks that you should understand before participating.
Please help us to keep GozBay an enjoyable and positive experience. If you see a listing that violates the rules below, please let us know by submitting an abuse report through your members area.
Please be respectful of where you are and how the quality, or lack thereof, of your item listings can effect the entire site.
The following are prohibited:
1. Continued item miscategorization.
Please choose your category correctly, the categories are very extensive and niche' oriented so you should be able to correctly categorize the items you are selling.
2. Excessive duplication of identical items.
The repeated relisting of excessive duplicate items to increase item exposure will not be tolerated.
If you have true duplicates of a significant amount then you should list them via Dutch auctions.
3. Objectionable material, language, etc.
As noted, the use of vulgar, obscene or otherwise objectionable language or posting of similarly objectionable material is prohibited.
4. Continued incorrect title keywords, "keyword spamming"
Please utilize keywords that relate directly to your items in your item title. The use of excessive and barely related "spam" keywords in your item title is prohibited.
This serves to degrade the value of searches within the site and may effect the overall business.
Please note: Though Members may note perceived infractions to these and other GozBay policies, policy infraction determinations and remedies will be made at GozBay's sole discretion.
Remedies can range from simple item/picture edits to the removal of items in their entirety. Whenever possible Members will be contacted and asked to make any potential changes but GozBay reserves the right to make these changes should that not be possible or if Members refuse to do so.
Rights To Terminate.
You agree that GozBay, in its sole discretion, may terminate any auction or use of the service immediately and without notice if (a) GozBay believes that you have acted inconsistently with the spirit or the letter of this Terms of Service or (b) if GozBay operators believe you have violated or tried to violate the rights of other users.
You are solely responsible for the contents of your transmissions through the service. You must ensure that your participation in the selling or buying of items does not violate any applicable laws or regulations. By this we mean that you must check that you entitled to sell or buy the relevant item and that you are not prohibited from doing so by any law or regulation. In particular, you may not sell or buy property which requires a written contract, which is illegal, which requires a license to buy or sell (for instance firearms, alcohol or pharmaceutical drugs) or which requires you to obtain an export license.
You must not transmit through the service any unlawful, harassing, libelous, abusive, threatening, harmful, vulgar, obscene or otherwise objectionable material. You must also not transmit any material that encourages conduct that could constitute a criminal offence, give rise to civil liability or otherwise violate any applicable law or regulation.
If either you or we terminate your membership, you will continue to owe us any money which you owed to us before termination.
GozBay prohibits the use of another internet auction service to send or post spam to drive visitors to your site through the GozBay system, whether or not the messages were originated by you, under your direction of a related or unrelated third party.

GozBay is only a Venue.
Our site acts as the venue for sellers to conduct auctions and for bidders to bid on sellers' auctions. We are not involved in the actual transaction between buyers and sellers. As a result, we have no control over the quality, safety or legality of the items advertised the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of sellers to sell items or the ability of buyers to buy items. We cannot and do not control whether or not sellers will complete the sale of items they offer or buyers will complete the purchases of items they have bid on. In addition, note that there are risks of dealing with foreign nationals, underage persons or people acting under false pretence.
There is no agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer or franchisor-franchisee relationship between GozBay and any User of the service.
You give us a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable, sublicenseable (through multiple tiers) right to exercise all copyright and publicity rights, in any existing or future media, known or unknown, over the material or User Data displayed in Your listings or bids.

We reserve the right to provide counterparties with information pertaining to a complaint or statement, written or oral, made against them by you or third-party acting with or without your consent. Because we do not and cannot be involved in user-to-user dealings, in the event that you have a dispute with one or more users, you release GozBay (and our agents and employees) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, know and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.

GozBay shall not be responsible for the cost of procurement of substitute goods or any losses resulting form any goods purchased or obtained.
GozBay assumes no liability for the content of the listings. The seller shall reimburse GozBay for all losses GozBay may suffer as a result of the listing, unless that loss is due to GozBay act or omission.
The right to sell items through our service is also subject to the GozBay Auction Posting Rules. These are available to view via the "Starting Auctions" section of the GozBay Helpdesk. If a user is seen to have broken these rules their account will be held and all auctions removed from GozBay without notice. It is at the discretion of GozBay if the account will be re-opened or not. Multiple offences will result in a permanent ban being placed on the offending account.
Modification to the service.
We reserve the right to modify or discontinue the service if there is a change in the law or our operational requirements. We will not be liable to you for any loss you may suffer if we have to modify or cease the service for reasons beyond our control if we give you at least 30 days notice. In certain exceptional circumstances beyond our control we may have to change or discontinue the service without giving you this amount of notice. If this is the case we will give you as much notice as we can.
If you do not wish to use our ooperating rules or policies you should not continue to use the service.
