TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SERVICE DATED: MAY 1, 2017

Please read the following prior to your use.

1. Important Rules

Toy-Cycle.org (also “Toy-Cycle”, “us”, “we”, or “our”) offers an online registry, posting service and community exchange network through this website Toy-cycle.org (the “Service”.) The rules that follow are really important and form part of the Terms and Conditions of Service (“Terms”). If you don’t agree with these rules or any other portion of the Terms, please don’t use the Service.

A. By using this website, or any Services provided on, from, or through this website, you agree to follow these Terms and our Privacy Policy.

B. Every item you list on the site must be free of charge, and must comply with Federal, State or local law.

C. Use of this website must be for personal, non-commercial use.

D. You must be at least 18 years or older to use this website.

E. You represent and warrant (promise) you have an unrestricted right to transfer, and full title in, all items you list at the time of posting. Please note, posting items you don’t own is a federal criminal offense.

F. Once an item is picked up you no longer have ownership in that item and you waive any right to say otherwise.

G. We believe every member of the Toy-Cycle community is committed to our mission of fairness and generosity. However, we can’t and don’t guarantee we check every listing or the items posted. You agree, as further described below, you won’t hold us responsible for any activity you undertake on or through the website. You are fully responsible for anything that happens, or does not happen, as a result of using the Service(s).

H. We ask you be careful with the information you disclose on the website and how you engage with other users. If something makes you uncomfortable, or seems suspicious, please stop communication and contact us immediately at info@toy-cycle.org.

I. Every member of the community must be kind, cordial and respectful of one another. Not only in their listings, but through communication, coordination and pickup. We reserve the right to remove disrespectful, rude, discriminatory, or inappropriate users as outlined below.

J. All listings must fairly represent items that are available for immediate pickup at the time of posting. To that end curb-side posts (where items are left on the curb) are not allowed. Posts may not be false, inaccurate or misleading. By the same token, once you respond to a post you must arrange for pickup quickly after. Failing to arrange for pickup, and actually pickup, the item as agreed between you and the poster may entitle the poster to repost.

We may, in our sole discretion, withdraw, modify or revise these Terms at any time, without prior notice. You agree to, from time to time, check for the most up-to-date version of Terms and Conditions of Use located on this page. Regardless, you will be bound by changes as soon as they are posted. All links or guidelines referenced in these Terms are made a part of these Terms.

The Service and Membership

In order to use the Service, you will need a membership. As for memberships:

  • Membership is open to users 18 years of age or older.
  • Only one membership is permitted per individual. You may not use a membership that isn’t in your name or create a membership under a fictitious name.
  • All information you supply must be accurate and complete and you solely are responsible for any activity that occurs under your account.
  • If we provide you with a user name, password or any other piece of security information, do not disclose it to anyone.

If there is unauthorized use of your account, you may be liable for damages or losses Toy-Cycle Group (defined below) suffers as a result.
  • We may disable a user name, password or other identifier at any time in our sole discretion. If we do disable an identifier, we will not be liable for losses you suffer as a result.

By using the Service, your membership has an initial and recurring payment feature. You accept responsibility for all recurring charges that occur prior to cancellation or termination. To cancel a membership, send us a message at info@toy-cycle.org before the renewal. Cancelling a subscription will not entitle you to a full refund. But, so long as you haven’t breached, or are in breach of, these terms you may be entitled to a pro-rated reimbursement for months paid and not used [along with a small cancellation fee.] We reserve the right to change the price of the membership fee, however, price increases will be done with advance written notice.
