SNOBSWAP is a VENUE (Not a Middle Woman)
We only provide an online marketplace to facilitate sales. The Site acts as a venue to allow anyone to trade any clothes, accessories, etc. at anytime, and from anywhere. We are not involved in the actual transaction between members. SNOBSWAP does not obtain title to any purchased items and does not act as the buyer or seller or agent of such. As a result, we have no control over the quality, safety or legality of the item swapped or sold, the truth or accuracy of the listings, or the ability of members to fulfill their transactional obligations. We cannot ensure that other users will actually complete a transaction or guarantee the ability or intent of users to fulfill their obligation in any transactions. SNOBSWAP reserves the right to delay completion of any transaction for a reasonably period of time for purposes of fraud detection and otherwise protecting SNOBSWAP and its users from wrongful or illegal activities. Consequently, we do not transfer legal ownership of items from the seller to the buyer, and nothing in this agreement shall modify the governing provisions of DC Code DC St. § 28-401(2) and Uniform Com. Code § 2-401(2), under which legal ownership of an item is transferred upon physical delivery of the item to the buyer by the seller. We are not responsible for the bad acts of other users, including, but not limited to, any tortuous conduct or criminal activities. SNOBSWAP is not affiliated with or endorsed by any designer, manufacturer, retailer or brand of items that are on SNOBSWAP's marketplace. You understand that there are risks when dealing with other users and that these risks are borne by you.
For every transaction that occurs through this Site, you agree to make an independent determination regarding the product descriptions, photos or video, or representations of other users and the other user's ability to pay or deliver item(s) offered. Of course, you may contact SNOBSWAP for more information; however, you understand that SNOBSWAP is only providing an opinion to assist with your independent determination. By providing an opinion, SNOBSWAP is not admitting to any responsibility for other users' actions as stated above.
We use many techniques to verify the accuracy of the information our users provide us when they register on the Site. However, because user verification on the Internet is difficult, SNOBSWAP cannot and does not confirm each user's purported identity. Thus, we have established a member review (feedback) system to help you evaluate with whom you are dealing. We also encourage you to communicate directly with potential trading partners through the tools available on the Site.
Member Disputes Release
Because we are a marketplace, in the event that you have a dispute with one or more users, you release SNOBSWAP (and our officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, successors, joint ventures 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. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code §1542, which says: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor."
No Information Control
We do not control the information provided by other users that is made available through our system. You agree that reliance on listings or other communications posted on the Site by other members will be at your own risk. You may find other user's information to be offensive, harmful, inaccurate, or deceptive. Please use caution, common sense, and practice safe trading when using the Site. Please note that there are also risks of dealing with underage persons or people acting under false pretense. By using this Site, you agree to accept such risks and SNOBSWAP is not responsible for the acts or omissions of users on the Site.
SNOBSWAP may make available to users of the Site message boards, opinion forums, bulletin board services or other interactive communication facilities. SNOBSWAP cannot review all communications made on or through the Site. However, SNOBSWAP reserves the right to monitor the boards and forums, and edit, modify or delete any materials which SNOBSWAP in its sole discretion determines to violate this Agreement or to be in any other way offensive or contrary to any SNOBSWAP policy, either written or unwritten. SNOBSWAP further reserves the right to use posted materials for its own purposes for marketing, communication, advertising, or any other purpose at the sole discretion of SNOBSWAP. You agree not to use SNOBSWAP forums for the posting of any material that is illegal, threatening, sexually explicit, pornographic, obscene, infringing on intellectual property rights, injurious to third parties, defamatory, or otherwise objectionable.
Returns: Currently, we do not allow returns on items on behalf of sellers, however, individual sellers may have their own return policy. If the item you received is not as described or damaged, then you must report the issue to SNOBSWAP by emailing [email protected] within 72 hours of delivery of the purchased item.

If you earn a net review rating below a level we deem to be unacceptable, your membership may be suspended, and you may be unable to list, trade or even login to the site.
You acknowledge that your reviews consists of comments left by other users and a composite review score is compiled by SNOBSWAP, and that the composite number without the comments does not convey your full user profile. Because reviews are not designed for any purpose other than for facilitating transactions between SNOBSWAP users, you agree that you shall not market or export your SNOBSWAP feedback rating in any venue other than an SNOBSWAP operated website.
We do not provide you the technical ability to import feedback from other (non-SNOBSWAP operated) websites to SNOBSWAP because a composite number without the corresponding feedback does not reflect your true online reputation within our community.
Without limiting other remedies, we may limit your activity, immediately remove your trades or item listings, warn our community of your actions, issue a warning, temporarily suspend, indefinitely suspend or terminate your membership and refuse to provide our services to you, which include, but not limited to, the following reasons: (a) you breach this Agreement or the documents it incorporates by reference; (b) we are unable to verify or authenticate any information you provide to us; (c) we believe that your actions may cause financial loss or legal liability for you, our users or us; or (d) if you cancel an agreement to purchase, sell or swap.
Infringement Policy: SNOBSWAP respects the intellectual property of others and we expect our users to do the same. SNOBSWAP will promptly process and investigate notices of alleged infringement and will take appropriate actions under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and other applicable intellectual property laws with respect to any alleged or actual infringement.

OUR LIABILITY, AND THE LIABILITY OF OUR SUBSIDIARIES, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AND SUPPLIERS, TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTIES IN ANY CIRCUMSTANCE IS LIMITED TO THE GREATER OF (A) THE AMOUNT OF FEES YOU PAY TO US IN THE 12 MONTHS PRIOR TO THE ACTION GIVING RISE TO LIABILITY, AND (B) $100. Some States do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.

INDEMNITY & RELEASE
You agree to release, indemnify and hold SNOBSWAP and its affiliates and their officers, employees, directors and agent harmless from any from any and all losses, damages, expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees, rights, claims, actions of any kind and injury (including death) arising out of or relating to your use of the Service (including any sale or purchase of any items through the Service), any User Content, your connection to the Service, your violation of these Terms of Service or your violation of any rights of another. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor." If you are a resident of another jurisdiction, you waive any comparable statute or doctrine.
You shall comply with all applicable domestic and international laws, statutes, ordinances and regulations regarding your use of our service including, but not limited to, listing, communicating, selling, and purchasing items on the Site.
You and SNOBSWAP are independent contractors, and no agency, partnership, joint venture, employee-employer or franchiser-franchisee relationship is intended or created by this Agreement.
COMPETITOR USE PROHIBITED
This Site and the associated service are to be used for non-competitive purposes only. Use of the Site or associated service by competing businesses, affiliates, employees, or other associates is absolutely prohibited and constitutes a breach of this contract, giving rise to substantial damages.
If you are an owner, employee or other associate of a competing site (other than simply a member), you hereby agree that damages from the unlicensed visitation of this site are difficult to compute. Damages from breach of this competitor use provision shall therefore be set at $100 per unauthorized Site visit. You hereby agree that such damages are a reasonable estimate of actual damages and you waive your right to contest these damages in a court of law or other proceeding.
Except as explicitly stated otherwise, any notices shall be given by postal mail to SNOBSWAP Attn: Legal Department, SNOBSWAP (in the case of SNOBSWAP) or to the email address you provide to SNOBSWAP during the registration process (in your case). Notice shall be deemed given 24 hours after email is sent, unless the sending party is notified that the email address is invalid. Alternatively, we may give you notice by certified mail, postage prepaid and return receipt requested, to the address provided to SNOBSWAP during the registration process. In such case, notice shall be deemed given 3 days after the date of mailing.
DISPUTE WITH SNOBSWAP
In the event a dispute arises between you and SNOBSWAP, our goal is to provide you with a neutral, cost effective and speedy resolution. Accordingly, you and SNOBSWAP agree that any claim or controversy at law or equity that arises out of this Agreement or our services ("Claims") shall be resolved in accordance with one of the subsections below or as otherwise mutually agreed upon in writing by the parties. Before resorting to these alternatives, we strongly encourage you to first contact us directly to seek a resolution and we will consider reasonable requests to resolve the dispute through alternative dispute resolution procedures, such as mediation, as an alternative to litigation. If SNOBSWAP is found to be liable, you agree that its liability to you or to any third party is limited to the greater of (a) the total fees you paid to SNOBSWAP in the 12 months prior to the action giving rise to the liability, or (b) $100.
For any Claim (excluding Claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) where the total amount of the award sought is less than $10,000, you or SNOBSWAP may elect to resolve the dispute through binding arbitration conducted by telephone, on-line and/or based solely upon written submissions where no in-person appearance is required. In such cases, the arbitration shall be administered by the American Arbitration Association or JAMS in accordance with their applicable rules, or any other established ADR provider mutually agreed upon by the parties. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
Alternatively, any Claim may be adjudicated by a court of competent jurisdiction located in Washington, DC. You and SNOBSWAP agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Washington, DC.
Commencement of Cause of Action
You agree that any cause of action arising out of or related to the Service must commence within one (1) year after the cause of action arose; otherwise, such cause of action is permanently barred.
Alternative Dispute Resolution
Alternatively, SNOBSWAP will consider use of other alternative forms of dispute resolution, such as binding arbitration to be held in Washington, DC or another location mutually agreed upon by the parties.
All Claims (excluding requests for injunctive or equitable relief) between the parties must be resolved using the dispute resolution mechanism that is selected in accordance with this Section by the first party to file a Claim. Should either party file an action contrary to this section, the other party may recover attorneys' fees and costs up to $1000, provided that the party seeking the award has notified the other party in writing of the improperly filed Claim, and the other party has failed to withdraw the Claim.
