Welcome to The Canadian Coin Reference Site (CCRS). The following is the Canadian Coin Reference Site's user agreement. The CCRS provides its service to you, subject to the following user agreement. We may amend this Agreement at any time by posting the amended terms on our site. This agreement is effective upon acceptance in registration for new registering users and is otherwise effective on September 25, 2003 for all users registered. If you do not agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of this User Agreement, do not use the Site or access our services.
If you have any questions please refer to our Frequently Asked Questions pages, our Help pages, and as a last resort contact us using the Feedback form.
Our services are available only to, and may only be used by individuals who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. Without limiting the foregoing, our services are not available to children (persons under the age of 18) or to temporarily or indefinitely suspended CCRS members. If you are under the age of 18, you can use this Site only in conjunction with, and under the supervision of your parents or guardians. If you do not qualify, please do not use the Site. Further, your CCRS account (including feedback) and User ID may not be transferred or sold to another party. If you are registering as a business entity, you represent that you have the authority to bind the entity to this Agreement. The CCRS reserves the right to suspend or cancel any membership at anytime for any reason.
Fees and Services.
Membership to the Canadian Coin Reference Site is free. We do charge for listing items for sale on the CCRS Marketplace. We also charge fees for commercial dealer directory listings and banner advertising. We may change our Fees from time to time. You are responsible for paying all fees associated with using our service and our website and all applicable taxes.
Certain taxes and government charges may be payable in relation to the purchase transaction. We accept no responsibility for such taxes and other government charges on transactions on the Site. The Canadian Coin Reference Site is a Venue.
The CCRS Marketplace acts as a venue to allow anyone to offer, sell, and buy items related to numismatics, at anytime, from anywhere, in a fixed priced format. 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 pay for items. We cannot ensure that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction.
We use many techniques to verify the accuracy of the information our users provide us when they register on the Site. However, because user authentication on the Internet is difficult, The Canadian Coin Reference Site cannot and does not confirm each user's purported identity. We encourage you to communicate directly with potential trading partners through the tools available on the Site, especially the popular CCRS "Discussion" Forum.
Because we are a venue, in the event that you have a dispute with one or more users, you release the Canadian Coin Reference Site (and our parent and its subsidiaries and joint ventures and all such person's, officers, directors, agents and employees) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.
You must be legally able to sell the item(s) you list for sale on the Site. You must describe your item and all terms of sale on the listing page of the Site. Your listings may only include text descriptions, graphics, pictures and other content relevant to the sale of that item. All listed items must be listed in an appropriate category. You certify that you have the right to distribute any photos that you upload and will not violate any copyrights. If you are unsure, please do not upload any photos.
Without limiting any other remedies, we may suspend or terminate your account if you are found (by conviction, settlement, insurance or escrow investigation, or otherwise) to have engaged in fraudulent activity in connection with the Site.
Your Information (or any items listed) and your activities on the Site shall not: (a) be false, inaccurate or misleading; (b) be fraudulent or involve the sale of counterfeit or stolen items; (c) infringe any third party's copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret or other proprietary rights or rights of publicity or privacy; (d) violate any law, statute, ordinance or regulation (including, but not limited to, those governing export control, consumer protection, unfair competition, antidiscrimination or false advertising); (e) be defamatory, trade libelous, unlawfully threatening or unlawfully harassing; (f) be obscene or contain child pornography or, if otherwise adult in nature or harmful to minors, shall be posted only in the Mature Audiences section and shall be distributed only to people legally permitted to receive such content; (g) contain any viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time bombs, cancelbots, easter eggs or other computer programming routines that may damage, detrimentally interfere with, surreptitiously intercept or expropriate any system, data or personal information; (h) create liability for us or cause us to lose (in whole or in part) the services of our ISPs or other suppliers. Furthermore, you may not list any item on the Site (or consummate any transaction that was initiated using our service) that, by paying to us the listing fee, could cause us to violate any applicable law, statute, ordinance or regulation, or that violates our current Prohibited, Questionable and Infringing Items.
In consideration of your use of the CCRS Discussion and/or CCRS Marketplace, you agree to provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Service's registration form. If for any reason The Canadian Coin Reference site has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, the CCRS has the right to suspend or terminate your account/membership.
