These Terms between you and us are effective as of 18 November 2021 for current users and upon site use for new users.

Disclaimer

This Site is intended to search multiple online marketplaces for secondhand items to buy, rent or be gifted, and learn about sustainable lifestyle choices. Our blogs should not be considered as medical, financial or legal advice. If you wish to take any of the advice written in the blogs and apply it to your personal life, you do so at your own risk. Our Site is available on an “as-is and as-available basis,” and users use it at their own risk.

Corrections

There may be information on the Site that contains errors or inaccuracies and various other information. We reserve the right to correct any errors and to change or update information on the Site at any time, without prior notice.

Responsibility and Liability

We (Used and Loved Ltd) are the providers of the Site. The listings displayed on our Site are operated by third parties (such as various online marketplaces) over which we have no control. We cannot accept any responsibility for links to such websites or your use of them.

We do not recommend any specific item advertised on those websites. Sometimes we may recommend items to buy, but the items we display will be automatically sourced from what is currently available, rather than hand-selected. If you decide to access any third-party website linked from this Site, you do so at your own risk. The links are for your convenience only. When you leave the Site, we encourage you to read the legal notices and policies of the other websites that you visit.

Accordingly, we shall not be liable for any loss or damage of any kind arising out of or in any way relating to the Site, our services, or your use of (or inability to use) the Site. Our liability will fully be limited, permitted by applicable law.

Warranty

We do not warrant that any of the information you will see on our Site will be accurate, and it does not constitute specific advice for you to follow.

Commenting on our Blogs

We will remove any posts that don’t comply with these Terms, and we reserve the right to ban any user for serious offences, including repeat breaches.

Any comments or posts that we consider spam will be marked as “spam” and deleted. Comments should be relevant to the blog post topic. Don’t be offensive. This includes, but isn’t limited to, anything we deem to be offensive, harassing, threatening or abusive. Do not use language, links or content that is, or could be seen as, vulgar, obscene, sexually-orientated, racist, sexist, homophobic or hateful. Trolling (i.e. a deliberate attack, bullying or provoking of other commenters or post writers) is not accepted.

Any links posted will be moderated. Please do not link to anything off-topic, commercial organisations or any websites that go against our guidelines.
