We may cancel unconfirmed accounts or accounts that have been inactive for a long time, or to modify or discontinue the Ushare.Center sites, or Services. Additionally, we reserve the right to refuse or terminate our Services to anyone for any reason at our discretion.
Ushare.Center and its community of users (the "Community") work together to keep our sites, Services, applications and tools working properly and the Community safe. Please report problems, offensive content, and policy violations to us.
When a buyer/renter, seller/owner issue arises we may consider the user's performance history and the specific circumstances in applying our policies. We may choose to be more lenient with policy enforcement in an effort to do the right thing for both buyer/renter and seller/owner.
Resolution of Disputes
To protect against the risk of liability, Ushare.Center has at times requested, and may continue to request, that seller/owner provides PayPal account name. Seller//owner/buyer/renter has to resolve their own problem. Ushare.Center only be able to provide the seller/owner PayPal account name and buyer/renter pursuant to the terms of the PayPal User Agreement, PayPal policies and any other agreement entered into between PayPal and its users.
Many of our sites, Services, applications and tools may be accessible to international seller/owner and buyer/renter. We may offer certain programs, tools, and site experiences of particular interest to international seller/owner and buyer/renter, such as estimated local currency conversion and international shipping calculation tools.
In some cases, you may be able to sell/rent your items internationally by listing items for sale directly on one or more of Ushare.Center’s international sites. Additionally, you may direct us to display your listing on Ushare.Center sites other than the original Ushare.Center listing site, including those situations where you choose to list items with an international shipping option (such as worldwide shipping); the appearance of your listings on these sites is not guaranteed. When you sell/rent your items internationally, you agree to be subject to that other site's policies and the Ushare.Center International Sell/Rent Agreement. You may restrict international buyer/renter from purchasing/renting your items if you explicitly exclude international shipping from your listings and apply an exclusion list to your listings. You are responsible for complying with all laws and regulations applicable to the sale and shipment of items to international buyer/renter.
If you are a seller/owner you authorize us to use automated tools to translate your Ushare.Center content, in whole or in part, into local languages where such translation solutions are available. If you are a buyer/renter, you may have access to tools which will enable you to translate content at Google translate tools. The accuracy and availability of any translation are not guaranteed and you should check your translated listing for accuracy.
Fees and Services
Joining Ushare.Center and buying/bidding on listed items is free and subject to this User Agreement and the Purchase Conditions set out below. We do charge fees for using other Services, such as listing items via promotions system, completing buy or rent agreement. The fees we charge for using our Services and related terms are listed on our Standard Fees, which we may change from time to time. Our Payments policy describes the methods of payment. Changes to that schedule are effective for new listings or re-listings in accordance with the terms set out in the General section below. We may choose to temporarily change the fees for our Services for promotional events (for example, free listing days) or new Services, and such changes are effective when we post the temporary promotional event or new service on the sites or in our applications.
Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted in US Dollars. You must have a payment method on file when sell/rent on Ushare.Center, and you are responsible for paying all fees and applicable taxes associated with our sites, Services, applications and tools with a valid payment method by the payment due date. If your payment method fails or your account is past due, we may collect fees owed by charging other payment methods on file with us, retaining collection agencies and legal counsel, and for accounts over 180 days past due, instructing PayPal to deduct the amount owed from your PayPal account balance. In addition, you will be subject to late fees and we may suspend or restrict you from using our sites, Services, applications and tools until full payment is made. Ushare.Center, or the collection agencies we retain, may also report information about your account to credit bureaus, and as a result, late payments, missed payments, or other defaults on your account may be reflected in your credit report.

Privacy of Others; Marketing
If Ushare.Center provides you with information about another user you agree you will use the information only for the purposes it is provided to you. You may not disclose, sell/buy, rent, or distribute a user's information to a third party for purposes unrelated to the Services. Additionally, you may not use information for marketing purposes, via electronic or other means, unless you obtain the consent of the specific user to do so.
When providing us with content or causing content to be posted using our Services, you grant us a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, fully sublicensable (through multiple tiers) right to exercise any and all copyright, trademark, publicity, and database rights and other intellectual property rights you have in the content, in any media known now or developed in the future, and to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law, you waive any and all moral rights and promise not to assert such rights or any other intellectual property or publicity rights against us, our sublicensees, or our assignees.
You represent and warrant that none of the following infringe any rights mentioned in the preceding paragraph: your provision of content to us, your causing content to be posted using the Services, and use of any such content (including of works derived from it) by us, our users, or others in contract with us that is done in connection with the Services and in compliance with this User Agreement.
For the convenience of seller/buyer/renter/owner, we may offer catalogues including stock images, descriptions and product specifications that are provided by third parties (including users). You may use catalogue content solely in connection with your Ushare.Center listings during the time your listings are on Ushare.Center's sites. That permission is subject to modification or revocation at any time at Ushare.Center’s sole discretion.
While we try to offer reliable data, we cannot promise that the catalogues will always be accurate and up-to-date, and you agree not to hold our catalogue content providers or us responsible for inaccuracies in catalogues. If you choose to include catalogue content in your listings, you continue to be fully responsible for your listings and for ensuring that your listings are accurate, do not include misleading information, and comply with this User Agreement and all Ushare.Center policies. The catalogues may include copyrighted, trademarked or other proprietary materials. You agree not to remove any copyright, proprietary or identification markings included with the catalogues or create any derivative works based on catalogue content (other than by including them in your listings).
Notice for Claims of Intellectual Property Violations and Copyright Infringement
We respond to notices of alleged intellectual property infringement under Canadian laws. Ushare.Center ensures that listed items do not infringe upon the copyright, trademark or other intellectual property rights of third parties. If you believe that your intellectual property rights have been infringed, please notify us and we will investigate.
Disclaimer of Warranties; Limitation of Liability
We try to keep Ushare.Center and its sites, Services, applications, and tools safe, secure, and functioning properly. You acknowledge that we cannot guarantee the continuous operation of or access to our sites, Services, applications or tools. You further acknowledge that operation of and access to our sites, Services, applications or tools may be interfered with as a result of technical issues or numerous factors outside of our control. Buy/Bid/Rent updates and other notification functionality in Ushare.Center's applications may not occur in real time. Such functionality is subject to delays including, without limitation, delays or latency due to your physical location or your wireless data service provider’s network. You agree that you are making use of our sites, Services, applications and tools at your own risk, and that they are being provided to you on an "AS IS" and "AS AVAILABLE" basis. Accordingly, to the extent permitted by applicable law, we exclude all express or implied warranties, terms and conditions including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and non-infringement.
In addition, to the extent permitted by applicable law, we (including our parent, subsidiaries, and affiliates, and our and their officers, directors, agents and employees) are not liable, and you agree not to hold us responsible, for any damages or losses (including, but not limited to, loss of money, goodwill or reputation, profits, or other intangible losses or any special, indirect, or consequential damages) resulting directly or indirectly from:

Some jurisdictions do not allow the disclaimer of warranties or exclusion of damages, so such disclaimers and exclusions may not apply to you.
You acknowledge that we are not a traditional seller/owner/auctioneer. Instead, our sites are venues to allow users to offer, sell/rent, and buy just about anything, at any time, from anywhere, in a variety of pricing formats and locations, such as Ushare.Center Stores, fixed price formats and auction-style formats. We are not involved in the actual transaction between seller/owner and buyer/renter. Any pricing or shipping guidance we provide in our sites, Services, applications, or tools is solely informational and you may choose not to follow such guidance at any time. We do not warrant or guarantee that any particular results will result from following guidance we provide (e.g. that your listing will sell or rent, that a particular shipping option is the least expensive, etc.) We have no control over and do not guarantee the existence, quality, safety, or legality of items advertised; the truth or accuracy of users' content or listings; the ability of seller/owner to buyer/renter items; the ability of seller/owner and buyer/renter to pay for items; or that a buyer/renter or seller/owner will actually complete a transaction or return an item.
Access and Interference
Ushare.Center’s sites contain robot exclusion headers. Much of the information and content on the sites is also proprietary or is licensed to Ushare.Center by our users or third parties and protected by Canadian and international copyright laws. You agree that you will not use any robot, spider, scraper, or other automated means to access our sites for any purpose without our express written permission.
Additionally, you agree that you will not:
- take any action that imposes or may impose (to be determined in our sole discretion) an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on our infrastructure;
- copy, reproduce, reverse engineer, modify, create derivative works from, distribute, sell/rent, transfer, or publicly display any content (except for your content) from our sites, Services, applications or tools without the prior express written permission of Ushare.Center and the appropriate third party, as applicable;
- interfere or attempt to interfere with the proper working of our sites, Services, applications or tools, or any activities conducted on or with our sites, Services, applications or tools; or bypass our robot exclusion headers or other measures we may use to prevent or restrict access to our sites.
By listing an item on Ushare.Center’s sites, you agree to pay Ushare.Center's Agreement, to assume full responsibility for the content of the listing and item offered, and to accept the following listing conditions: when you list an item on Ushare.Center’s sites, your listing will be posted on Ushare.Center’s sites and can be viewed in My Ushare.Center. Your listing may not be immediately searchable by keyword or category for several hours (or up to 24 hours in some circumstances), so Ushare.Center can't guarantee exact listing durations. Ushare.Center's duplicate listing policy may also affect whether your listing appears in search results. Ushare.Center reserves the right to end your listing for any reason. Where and whether your listing appears in search and browse, results may be based on certain factors including, but not limited to, listing format, title, bidding activity, end time, keywords, price and shipping cost, Review, Ushare.Center policy compliance, seller/owner/renter's history, including listing practices and detailed seller/owner/renter’s reviews. Accordingly, to drive a positive user experience, a listing may not appear in some search and browse results regardless of the sort order chosen by the buyer/renter. You can read more about where your listings appear in search and browse results in Ushare.Center's Help Pages.
Content included by you in a listing that violates any of Ushare.Center’s policies may be deleted at Ushare.Center’s discretion.
You are responsible for reading the full item listing, including any instructions the seller/owner provides, before making a buy/bid/rent or commitment to buy/rent. Unless otherwise stated, by making a bid/rent or commitment to buy an item on Ushare.Center, you are committing to buy/rent the item from the seller/owner listing the item. If you make a commitment to buy/rent or your bid is the winning bid or is otherwise accepted, you enter into a legally binding contract with the seller/owner and are obligated to purchase/rent the item. For motor vehicles and real estate, a bid or offer initiates a non-binding transaction representing a buyer/renter's serious expression of interest in buying the seller/renter/owner's item and does not create a formal contract between the buyer/renter and the seller/owner.
We do not transfer legal ownership of items from the seller/owner to the buyer/renter. Applicable laws relating to the transfer of ownership in the sale of goods in your jurisdiction apply to the transfer of ownership between the buyer/renter and the seller/owner, unless the buyer/renter and seller/owner agree otherwise.
If you purchase an item on an Ushare.Center site other than Ushare.Center, you are subject to the User Agreement of that other Ushare.Center site with respect to that particular purchase.
You will indemnify and hold Ushare.Center (and our affiliates and subsidiaries, and our and their respective officers, directors, employees, and agents) harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys' fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of your breach of this User Agreement, your use of Ushare.Center’s sites, Services, applications, or tools, and/or your violation of any law or the rights of a third party.
No agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer, or franchiser-franchisee relationship is intended or created by this User Agreement.Read full article
