SpannerFodder is Only a Venue.
3.1 SpannerFodder is not an auctioneer. SpannerFodder acts as a
venue which allows users to offer, sell, and buy just about anything,
at any time, from anywhere. We do not review listings provided by
users and we are not involved in transactions 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. Do not assume that the offer, sale, purchase,
export or import of any item is valid and legal simply because it
is listed on our website. We are not responsible for ensuring that
buyers and sellers actually complete a transaction. You accept sole
responsibility for the legality of your actions under laws applying
3.2 Restricted Items. You must not offer, sell, export, bid for,
buy or import firearms, knives or other offensive weapons of any
sort, or explicit sexual materials or other items of an adult nature.
You must not offer or sell dangerous items, or items in a condition
liable to cause harm to people or property. SpannerFodder does not
accept any obligation to protect you from unsafe items listed for
sale on the SpannerFodder website. Please do not assume that items
listed will be harmless to people or property.
3.3 Identity verification. SpannerFodder cannot and does not confirm
the purported identity of users or the validity of the information
which users post to our website.
3.4 Release. In the event that you have any right, claim or action
against any other user arising from that user's use of our website,

parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors, agents and
employees) from all claims, liability, damages, losses, costs and
expenses, including legal fees, known and unknown, arising from
or in any way connected with such right, claim or action.

by other users which is made available through our system. You may
find other user's information to be offensive, harmful, inaccurate,
or deceptive. Please use caution, common sense, and practice safe

of dealing with foreign nationals, underage persons or people acting

Governing Law and Legal Compliance.
This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance
with English law and subject to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of
the English courts.
Once an item has ended, if you and the other party are both based
in the European Union then the seller's local law will govern further
dealings as to shipment, payment etc. unless you both explicitly
agree otherwise. Note however, that your country (and/or that of
any user you deal with) may have laws which apply regardless of
what you agree with us (now) or with that user (later).
The laws of your country may be different from English law, including
laws governing what can be legally offered, sold, exported, bought
or imported. There may be additional legal requirements, relating
to (for example) the requirement to hold a licence to buy or sell
certain items, or to register a transfer in a central registry.
You shall comply with all applicable domestic and international
laws, statutes, ordinances and regulations regarding your use of
our service and your listing, purchase, solicitation of offers to
purchase and sale of items. There is no practical way for us to
continually monitor the laws of every country, or each user transaction.
Please do not assume that you are allowed to do what other users
do, or that we are approving or validating any transaction, even
if you have successfully made similar sales or purchases in the
Disputes between you and SpannerFodder regarding our services may
be reported to SpannerFodder Customer Support We encourage you to
report all disputes between users to your local law enforcement
body. However, any controversy or claim arising out of or in connection
with this Agreement may at our discretion be settled by binding
arbitration by reference to a arbitration tribunal designated by
SpannerFodder. You agree to be bound by the ruling arbitrator. The
costs of the dispute are borne by the originator. Any such controversy
or claim shall be arbitrated on an individual basis, and shall not
be consolidated in any arbitration with any claim or controversy
of any other party. The arbitration shall be conducted in the U.K.,
and judgment on the arbitration award may be entered into any court
having jurisdiction thereof.
Third Party Rights.
A person who is not a party to this Agreement has no right under
the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 to enforce any
term of this Agreement but this does not affect any right or remedy
of a third party which exists or is available apart from that Act.
If any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable,
such provision shall be struck out and the remaining provisions
shall be enforced. You agree that this Agreement and all incorporated
agreements may be automatically assigned by SpannerFodder, in our
sole discretion, to a third party in the event of a merger or acquisition.
You and SpannerFodder are independent contractors, and no agency,
partnership, joint venture, employee-employer or franchisor-franchisee
relationship is intended or created by this Agreement. Headings
are for reference purposes only and in no way define, limit, construe
or describe the scope or extent of such section. Our failure to
act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive our
right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches. This
Agreement sets forth the entire understanding and agreement between
us with respect to its subject matter.
This Agreement will prevail over any conditions of sale imposed
amended from time to time by posting the changes and except for
notice, changes to the other policies shall be effective immediately.
