Classifieds website terms and conditions
These terms and conditions were created with advertising websites in mind: that is, websites that publish, as a core activity, classified advertisements or other similar kinds of advertisements. They can be used in relation to websites that offer free advertising in addition to paid advertising, but are unsuitable for websites that only offer free advertising.
The key provisions of the terms and conditions relating to advertisements set out the process by which advertisements may be submitted and published, rules relating to advertisement content and subject matter, the website owner's rights to use advertisement content, the period for which advertisements will remain published on the website, and the fees payable with respect to advertisements.
An optional distance selling clause allows the terms and conditions to be used in relation to advertisements posted and paid for by individual consumers, as well as those originating from businesses.
In addition, the terms and conditions contain a comprehensive range of clauses relating to the use of the website generally, including an express licence to use the website and services, and a set of prohibitions on use.Ask about this document
