tig is only a Venue.
tig is not an auctioneer. Instead, the Site acts as a venue, which allows registered users to offer, sell, and buy items. Whilst we will reasonably attempt to monitor all listings to stop clearly offensive material reaching our site we do not promise to review all listings provided by users. We do not at any time possess the items offered through the Site and we are not involved in transactions between buyers and sellers. As a result, we have no control over the quality, safety or legality of the items listed, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of sellers to sell items or the ability of buyers to pay for items. Do not assume that the offer, sale, purchase, export or import of any item is valid and legal simply because it is listed on the Site. We are not responsible for ensuring that buyers and sellers actually complete a transaction. You accept sole responsibility for the legality of your actions under laws applying to you.
Identity verification. We cannot and do not confirm the purported identity of users or the validity of the information which users post to the Site.
Limits on activities. We may limit the number of your activities, whether as vendor or purchaser on the site.
Liability. In the event that you have any right, claim or action against any other user arising from that user’s use of the Site, you agree to pursue such right, claim or action independently of and without recourse to us, and you release us (and our directors, agents and employees) from all claims, liability, damages, losses, costs and expenses, including legal fees, known and unknown, arising from or in any way connected with such right, claim or action.
Information Control. We do not control the information provided by other users which is made available through the Site. 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 pretences. By using this Site, you agree to accept such risks and agree that we are not responsible for the acts or omissions of users on the Site.
No Cancellation. You acknowledge that we will commence supplying our services to you as soon as you entered a listing for with us, and you recognise that you will not have the right to cancel any listing. Insertion fees are charged at the time of listing and not refundable. There are some circumstances where a refund of fees may be given at the discretion of the management, for example, if there were technical difficulties with the site and/or you felt you were not getting an appropriate level of service, or there was fraudulent use of your card. Should you have any concerns and would like to request a refund of payments made, you must contact us by email at [email protected]tig.gg within 7 days of the incident occurring. We will respond to your email within 7 days of receipt.
Fraud Without limiting any other remedies, we may suspend or terminate your account if we suspect that you have engaged or are about to engage in, or have been in any way involved in or linked to, fraudulent activity in connection with the Site.
Copyright, trade mark or other intellectual property rights of third parties. We are not responsible for verifying a seller’s right to list and sell items.
Manipulation. You must not manipulate the price of any item or interfere with other user’s listing(s).
Fees. Joining tig and buying items through the Site is free, although you will remain responsible for the costs of accessing our Site and communicating with our users. We charge fees for listing items for sale through our Site and when you list an item you have an opportunity to review and accept the fees that you will be charged. Our fees are described on our Sellers Page which forms part of this User Agreement. We may change this policy at any time, and any change will be effective after the expiry of 14 days following the date of posting on the announcements board on the Site (or such later date as we may notify). We may in our sole discretion change some or all of our services at any time. In the event we introduce a new service, the fees for that service are effective at the launch of the service.

General. If any provision of this User Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be struck out and the remaining provisions shall be enforceable. You agree that this User Agreement and all incorporated agreements may be automatically assigned by tig, in our sole discretion, to a third party in the event of a merger or acquisition or any other event. Headings are for reference purposes only and in no way define, limit, construe or describe the scope or extent of such section.

No oral explanation or oral information given by any party shall alter the interpretation of this User Agreement.
