The Service includes pricing and listing assistance and shipping, but not buying or selling.

Purchase and Sale Transactions
Fees; Transactions: Registering for the Service is free; however, SidelineSwap charges Sellers certain fees for various transactions effected through the Service. Our Fee Policy is available in the Help Center and is incorporated herein by reference. Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted in U.S. Dollars.
Taxes; Shipping Costs; Buyer Responsibility: Items purchased by and shipped to Buyers in locations in the U.S. may be subject to applicable state or local sales or use tax, privilege tax or similar transaction-based taxes ("State Tax"). Items purchased by and shipped to Buyers in locations outside the U.S. may also be subject to applicable taxes, including value added taxes (collectively with State Tax, "Taxes"). The amount of Taxes is based on a number of factors, including but not limited to the type of Items purchased, the Buyer's designated delivery address, and/or the location of the Seller and the Items sold on the website and mobile app.
Buyers are responsible for paying the applicable purchase price for a purchased Item to the Seller, and to SidelineSwap in the case of 1st Party Sales, as well as any shipping costs and paying applicable Taxes and/or duties associated with the purchase and sale of any Items through the Service or from SidelineSwap. For Buyers in the U.S., the rate of Tax applied to purchases of taxable Items is a combined rate based on the state and local rates of the address where the Items are delivered to or shipped from.
Buyers may use certain SidelineSwap promotions or credits towards the purchase of Items. Depending on the type of promotion or credit used, it may reduce the amount of Taxes that apply to a Buyer's order. The application of the promotion or credit will be reflected at the time of checkout and on the receipt of purchase.
Tax and shipping costs are not included in the listed price for any Items listed by Sellers through the Service or by SidelineSwap in the case of 1st Party Sales but will be displayed to Buyers before confirmation of any purchase.
Estimated Taxes: When a Buyer chooses to make an offer an estimated amount of Tax will be displayed. The estimated amount of Taxes is an estimate of applicable Taxes based on several factors, including the offer price, Buyers designated delivery address and rates of Taxes in effect at that time. If the offer price is accepted, the amount a Buyer is charged will include the amount of estimated Taxes displayed when the offer is submitted. If there is a counteroffer from the Seller, or by SidelineSwap in the case of 1st Party Sales, the amount a Buyer is charged will include the amount of estimated Taxes displayed when the counteroffer is accepted. The amount of Taxes may change and be updated when the order is finalized and completed through the Service or by SidelineSwap in the case of 1st Party Sales.
Marketplace Collection; Taxes; Commissions; Seller Responsibility: SidelineSwap will collect Taxes from Buyers on behalf of Sellers where we are legally obligated to do so including those states, countries and provinces that have enacted legislation requiring marketplaces, like SidelineSwap, to collect Taxes on behalf of sellers or in lieu of collection by sellers. In these states, countries and provinces the amount of Taxes collected will be submitted by SidelineSwap to the appropriate taxing authority. In those states where SidelineSwap does not collect Taxes on behalf of Sellers, Sellers are responsible for collecting and submitting any Taxes to the appropriate taxing authority in accordance with relevant state or local laws. SidelineSwap will also collect Taxes on its own sales where required to do so and will remit such collected taxes to the appropriate jurisdiction.
Sellers are responsible for paying SidelineSwap's commission as well as all taxes imposed or measured by Seller's net income, profits, and/or revenues associated with the sale of any Items through the Service.
Payments: Buyers may pay for Items using credit cards or other payment methods. If you submit your payment information through the Service, then you authorize SidelineSwap to store that payment information and charge your payment method for any Item you purchase.
Fee Modifications: We reserve the right to change or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, some or all of the fees for the Service (including to lower fees for promotional events), and such changes are effective when we post information about the fee change through the Service. Additionally, we may change our Fee Policy at any time and in our sole discretion, and any changes to the Fee Policy are effective upon the posting of such changes to the Fee Policy.
Marketplace Risk: SidelineSwap is not affiliated with or endorsed by any manufacturer, retailer or brand of the items that users buy or sell through the Service: SidelineSwap is a marketplace and technology platform and is not involved in any transaction between Buyers and Sellers, does not obtain title to any purchased items and does not act as Buyer, Seller (or affiliate for a Buyer or Seller) or broker with respect to any such transactions, with the exception of 1st Party Sales. There are risks that you assume when dealing with other users (including those who may be acting under false pretenses). You agree that all of these risks are borne by you, and not SidelineSwap. We encourage you to use the various functionalities of the Service (e.g., our direct messaging platform) to help evaluate the user with whom you are dealing.
SidelineSwap does not control the behavior of users of the Service or the information or User Content (defined below) provided by other users. As a result, SidelineSwap does not guarantee or endorse the authenticity, quality, safety, or legality of any items offered or sold, the truth or accuracy of any listings, or the ability of sellers to sell items or of buyers to buy items. We cannot assure that all transactions will be completed. Additionally, SidelineSwap does not guarantee the ability or intent of users to fulfill their obligations in any transactions. SidelineSwap reserves the right to delay the completion of any transaction for a reasonable period of time for purposes of fraud detection and otherwise protecting SidelineSwap and its users from illegal or wrongful activities or other violations of these Terms.
FOR EVERY TRANSACTION THAT IS COMMENCED THROUGH THE SERVICE, YOU MUST MAKE YOUR OWN INDEPENDENT DETERMINATION REGARDING THE STATEMENTS, PRODUCT DESCRIPTIONS OR REPRESENTATIONS OF THE OTHER PARTY AND THE PARTY'S ABILITY TO PAY FOR OR DELIVER THE ITEM(S) OFFERED. PLEASE USE CAUTION, COMMON SENSE, AND PRACTICE SAFE TRADING WHEN DEALING WITH OTHER USERS OR OTHERWISE USING THE SERVICE.
Prohibited Items: SidelineSwap prohibits the listing or sale of any Item that is illegal to sell under any applicable law, statute, ordinance, or regulation, including, without limitation, the Items listed in our Prohibited Items Policy.
Sellers: You must have the right to sell the Items that you are listing for sale through the Service. You must describe your item (including the original price) and all terms of sale in your listing truthfully, accurately and completely.
Buyers: You are responsible for reading the full Item listing before making an offer. When you make an offer and your offer is accepted by the Seller or by SidelineSwap in the case of 1st Party Sales, you have a contract with the Seller or SidelineSwap, respectively.
Purchases: Buyers may offer to purchase Items from Sellers and SidelineSwap in the case of 1st Party Sales. Once an offer is accepted by Seller, or SidelineSwap the sale transaction is binding on both Seller (or SidelineSwap in the case of 1st Party Sales) and Buyer, and no returns, refunds, cancellations or retractions are allowed, except as permitted by these Terms. Once the offer is accepted by Seller, (or SidelineSwap in the case of 1st Party Sales). Buyer must pay the purchase price and shipping costs for the Item through the website. After doing so, Buyer's obligations are complete, unless Buyer requests a permitted return. After Buyer pays those amounts with respect to a sale by a Seller, SidelineSwap will provide Seller with a prepaid shipping label (“Label”), generated to the sale page on the Seller's account. Once the Label is provided to the Seller, SidelineSwap's obligations for that sale are complete.
If an Item has not been shipped after 5 days, Buyers will have the option to cancel the sale, unless the Seller has already printed the shipping label. All Buyers can cancel their unshipped orders after 12 days, regardless of whether the Seller, or SidelineSwap in the case of 1st Party Sales, has accessed the shipping label.
SidelineSwap automatically cancels and refunds all orders after 21 days, unless an extension has been requested by the buyer and seller.
When using a Label provided by SidelineSwap: (i) Seller may only use the Label to ship the applicable Item; (ii) Labels may not be transferred or sold to a third party; (iii) Seller is fully responsible for the contents of any parcels shipped using the Label; and (iv) Seller must comply with the terms and conditions and any other policies or rules imposed by the carrier used to ship the Items; and (v) Seller is responsible for purchasing his/her own shipping label if he/she wants insurance added to a shipment. If an item is lost or damaged in transit using a SidelineSwap shipping label, SidelineSwap is not responsible for compensating sellers when funds for an insurance claim are not rewarded. As a Buyer, if an Item shipped with a Label is lost, damaged, or arrives later than expected, or is the wrong Item, we have no obligation to you; however, please report the issue to us through the Service within three days after delivery. If the tracking number on the label shows that the package has been delivered to the provided address, SidelineSwap considers the package delivered, even if the Buyer subsequently claims otherwise. SidelineSwap reserves the right to discontinue providing Labels to any or all users at any time and for any reason.
Once the Buyer confirms it has received and accepted the Item (either by affirmatively indicating acceptance through the Service or by failing to notify SidelineSwap of any issues with the Item within three days of delivery of the Item, as determined by the tracking information on the Label), then SidelineSwap will credit Seller's account with an amount equal to the purchase price received from the Buyer (less any applicable Tax), minus SidelineSwap's commission, as set forth in the Fee Policy. Funds credited to Seller's account may be redeemed by the Seller through a permitted third party payment provider (e.g., by ACH from SidelineSwap's chosen financial institution) or used by Seller to purchase items listed by other Sellers through the Service.
Seller Account Balances: Amounts credited to a Seller's account resulting from the Purchases flow described above (which excludes credits derived from the Friend Referral Program or from Gift Cards or other promotional credits defined below) may be redeemed by the Seller through a permitted third party payment provider (e.g., by ACH from SidelineSwap's chosen financial institution) or used by Seller to purchase items listed by other Sellers through the Service. Amounts redeemed by a Seller through a permitted third party payment provider are limited to $10,000 USD per day. Amounts reflected in Seller Account Balances that have not been redeemed by a Seller within one year of the last active date will be converted to an electronic gift card.
Returns: Sellers and SidelineSwap are not obligated to accept the return of items that are as advertised but have the option to do so. If the item you receive is not as described on the Service, then you must report the issue in the SidelineSwap Service within 3 days after delivery of the purchased item. The order becomes non-refundable as soon as you have approved the sale or 72 hours after the item has arrived at your address-- whichever comes first. Once the order is non-refundable, amounts will be released to the Seller, as described in the Purchases section of these terms. SidelineSwap offers no shipping speed guarantees. SidelineSwap is not obligated to grant a buyer's request to return an item that was not delivered within a certain timeframe.

Dispute Resolution By Binding Arbitration
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY AS IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.
a. Agreement to Arbitrate
This Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration section is referred to in this Agreement as the “Arbitration Agreement.” You agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and SidelineSwap, whether arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service (including any alleged breach thereof), the Services, Items purchased from SidelineSwap or Sellers, any advertising, any aspect of the relationship or transactions between us, shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than a court, in accordance with the terms of this Arbitration Agreement, except that you may assert individual claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify. Further, this Arbitration Agreement does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, provincial, or local agencies, and such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf. You agree that, by entering into these Terms, you and SidelineSwap are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. Your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator, not a judge or jury. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement.
b. Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief
YOU AND COMPANY AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND COMPANY AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON'S OR PARTY'S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY'S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S), PROVIDED, HOWEVER, THAT THIS LIMITATION SHALL NOT BE CONSTRUED TO PROHIBIT PUBLIC INJUNCTIVE RELIEF IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA.
c. Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution
SidelineSwap is always interested in resolving disputes amicably and efficiently, and most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer's satisfaction by submitting a support request at help.sidelineswap.com. If such efforts prove unsuccessful, a party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, a Notice of Dispute ("Notice"). The Notice to SidelineSwap should be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org ("Notice Address"). The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought. If SidelineSwap and you do not resolve the claim within sixty (60) calendar days after the Notice is received, you or SidelineSwap may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by SidelineSwap or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or SidelineSwap is entitled. If you fail to participate in the pre-dispute resolution procedure outlined in this section prior to filing an arbitration demand, the arbitrator shall administratively dismiss the demand and SidelineSwap shall not be responsible for any fees associated with that arbitration. Notwithstanding this general arbitration agreement, a party may file a court action to enjoin an improperly filed arbitration.
d. Arbitration Procedures
Arbitration will be conducted by a neutral arbitrator in accordance with the American Arbitration Association's ("AAA") rules and procedures, including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (collectively, the "AAA Rules"), as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. For information on the AAA, please visit its website, http://www.adr.org. Information about the AAA Rules and fees for consumer disputes can be found at the AAA's consumer arbitration page, http://www.adr.org/consumer_arbitration. If there is any inconsistency between any term of the AAA Rules and any term of this Arbitration Agreement, the applicable terms of this Arbitration Agreement will control unless the arbitrator determines that the application of the inconsistent Arbitration Agreement terms would not result in a fundamentally fair arbitration. The arbitrator must also follow the provisions of this Agreement as a court would. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and arbitrability of this Arbitration Agreement. Although arbitration proceedings are usually simpler and more streamlined than trials and other judicial proceedings, the arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual under this Agreement and applicable law. Decisions by the arbitrator are enforceable in court and may be overturned by a court only for very limited reasons.
Unless SidelineSwap and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in a reasonably convenient location for both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, the determination shall be made by AAA. If your claim is for USD $10,000 or less, SidelineSwap agrees that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds USD $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based.
e. Costs of Arbitration
Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, SidelineSwap will not seek attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous.
We are committed to providing for dispute resolution at a reasonable cost to consumers consistent with the AAA Rules, and any matters related to such cost, if not agreed to by you and us, will be decided by the arbitrator.
All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision, or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of all parties.
If a court or the arbitrator decides that any term or provision of this Arbitration Agreement (other than subsection (b) titled "Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief" above) is invalid or unenforceable, the parties agree to replace such term or provision with a term or provision that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid or unenforceable term or provision, and this Arbitration Agreement shall be enforceable as so modified. If a court or the arbitrator decides that any of the provisions of subsection (b) above titled "Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief" are invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Arbitration Agreement shall be null and void. The remainder of this Agreement will continue to apply.
h. Future Changes to Arbitration Agreement
Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, SidelineSwap agrees that if it makes any future change to this Arbitration Agreement (other than a change to the Notice Address) while you are a user of the Services, you may reject any such change by sending SidelineSwap written notice within thirty (30) calendar days of the change to the Notice Address provided above. By rejecting any future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this Arbitration Agreement as of the date you first accepted this Agreement (or accepted any subsequent changes to this Agreement).
You agree that SidelineSwap, in its sole discretion, may suspend or terminate your account (or any part thereof) or use of the Service and remove and discard any items or content within the Service, for any reason, including, without limitation, for lack of use or if SidelineSwap believes that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of this Agreement. Any suspected fraudulent, abusive or illegal activity that may be grounds for termination of your use of Service, may be referred to appropriate law enforcement authorities. SidelineSwap may also in its sole discretion and at any time discontinue providing the Service, or any part thereof, or making 1st Party Sales, with or without notice. You agree that any termination of your access to the Service under any provision of this Agreement may be effected without prior notice, and acknowledge and agree that SidelineSwap may immediately deactivate or delete your account and all related information and files in your account and/or bar any further access to such files or the Service. Further, you agree that SidelineSwap shall not be liable to you or any third-party for any termination of your access to the Service.
You agree that you are solely responsible for your interactions (including any purchase and sale transactions) with any other user in connection with the Service and SidelineSwap will have no liability or responsibility with respect thereto. SidelineSwap reserves the right, but has no obligation, to become involved in any way with disputes between you and any other user of the Service.
This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and SidelineSwap and governs your use of the Service and 1st Party Sales superseding any prior agreements between you and SidelineSwap with respect to the Service or 1st Party Sales. You also may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when you use affiliate or third-party services, third-party content or third-party software. This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of Delaware without regard to its conflict of law provisions. With respect to any disputes or claims, you and SidelineSwap agree to submit any and all such disputes to binding arbitration as outlined in the “Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration” section, above. In the event that any such dispute is deemed not arbitrable by any adjudicatory body with authority to make such a finding, you and SidelineSwap agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located within Delaware to resolve the dispute. The failure of SidelineSwap to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of this Agreement is found by a court of competent jurisdiction or arbitrator to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court or arbitrator should endeavor to give effect to the parties' intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms of Service remain in full force and effect. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Service or this Agreement must be filed within one (1) year (unless applicable law requires a longer period) after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. This electronic document and all other electronic documents referred to or incorporated herein, will be: (a) deemed for all purposes to be a “writing” or “in writing” and to comply with all statutory, contractual, and other legal requirements for a writing; and (b) legally enforceable as a signed agreement. A printed version of this agreement and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings or arbitration proceedings based upon or relating to this agreement to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. The section titles in this Agreement are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. Notices to you may be made via either email or regular mail except as otherwise provided. SidelineSwap may also provide notices to you of changes to this Agreement or other matters by displaying notices or links to notices generally on the Service, except as otherwise provided.

Under California Civil Code Section 1789.3, users of the Service from California are entitled to the following specific consumer rights notice: The Complaint Assistance Unit of the Division of Consumer Services of the California Department of Consumer Affairs may be contacted in writing at 1625 North Market Blvd., Suite N 112, Sacramento, CA 95834, or by telephone at (916) 445-1254 or (800) 952-5210.
Proposition 65 - California
The California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (“Prop 65”) requires manufacturers, producers, packagers, importers, suppliers or distributors (the “Notice Parties”) of products to provide warnings to California consumers about potentially hazardous or cancer-causing materials in those products. On August 30, 2018, Prop 65 will change by encouraging the Notice Parties to include a warning that lists the specific chemicals in the product(s) if they are present in an amount that may be hazardous. Example warnings could read:
WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals, including [name of chemical], which is/are known to the State of California to cause cancer. For more information, go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov.
WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals, including [name of chemical], which is/are known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm. For more information, go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov.
We encourage all SidelineSwap users who sell to California residents to investigate the requirements and to make independent determinations about whether warnings are necessary when selling items to California residents. You can include warnings in your item descriptions on SidelineSwap. You agree to indemnify and hold SidelineSwap harmless for any violations of Prop 65 or any claims arising out of your violation of Prop 65.
