Trashbank shall cooperate with any investigation by any Federal, State, or local body or any court or tribunal. Such cooperation may be without notice to You. If Trashbank believes in its sole discretion that any listing may create liability for Trashbank, Trashbank may take any actions that it believes are prudent or necessary to minimize or eliminate its potential liability, including, but not limited to, releasing User information and/or filing a report with the appropriate authorities. In sum, Trashbank reserves the right to refuse service to anyone at any time, and to remove any listings or any advertisements for any reason, and without notice.

If there is a dispute between Users of the Site, Trashbank is under no obligation to become involved. In the event that You have a dispute with one or more Users, You hereby release Trashbank, Trashbank, LLC, their officers, employees, agents and successors in rights from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind or nature, known or unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way related to such disputes and / or our service. 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."

Notwithstanding the foregoing, Trashbank may investigate reports of abuse or misuses and, if appropriate, limit or prohibit Your use of the Site or modify Your user profile to reflect its determinations. Trashbank, however, will not take any other action with respect to a complaint and will not make determinations that will exempt any party from concluding a particular transaction. That determination may only be made by a court of competent jurisdiction or a mutually acceptable third party. All determinations are final and are made at the sole discretion of Trashbank. In agreeing to these Terms of Service, You agree to participate in investigations and be bound by Trashbank's determination. There are three steps in our Offenses and Enforcement Policy.

    1. Reporting of the Offense - In order for an offense to be investigated, it must be reported to Trashbank. Users may file reports if they fall victim to, or are aware of, any enforceable offenses. In addition, Trashbank reserves the right to initiate investigations even in the absence of a report.
    2. Investigating the Offense - Once a report has been filed, the details will be investigated by Trashbank. Several factors will be looked at to determine the legitimacy of the report and level of offense before enforcement. If the report and/or response warrants it, additional proof or information may be requested from all involved parties.
    3. Enforcing the Offense - Offenses fall into two categories: (a) Violations, and (b) Zero Tolerance. If an offense is determined to be a violation, Trashbank will issue a warning on the first and second offenses, and a third offense will result in the permanent suspension of the user account. If a User commits a Zero Tolerance offense, the User account will be revoked immediately. It is important to note that, if a User's account is suspended, Trashbank will not refund any fees paid to it by the User. When Your account is suspended, You will not be able to perform any transactions in the Trashbank community as either a Buyer or a Seller, Your listings will be removed from the Site, and any ongoing negotiations You may have will be cancelled. Any party with whom You are engaged in an ongoing negotiation at the time of Your suspension will be notified via email of Your suspension.
The first two violations will result in warnings. Trashbank will send an email to the address provided by You at registration to notify that you have committed a Violation and we have placed a mark on your account. A third offense will result in the permanent suspension of your account.

Examples of Violations:
  • Nonpayment or failing to deliver a traded/sold product from a closed transaction. At any time during the negotiation process, You may walk away from the transaction without penalty, provided an offer has not been accepted. Once the Buyer or Seller accepts an offer, the transaction is complete, and a binding agreement is formed. Failure of the Buyer or Seller to fulfill his or her portion of the agreement constitutes a violation.
  • Failure to pay transaction fees. In order to Sell an Item on Trashbank, you must provide a valid credit card for the collection of listing and final transaction fees. If the credit card number is incorrect, or if the credit card has expired, resulting in failure to pay fees, such failure constitutes a violation.
  • Violation of Content Policy. Listing a "prohibited" Item on the Trashbank system will result in the prompt removal of the listing, as well as a Violation on Your account. It is important to note, however, that if the Item is in blatant disregard of our Terms of Service (for example: drugs), the listing may be considered a Zero Tolerance offense and will be handled accordingly (see below).
  • Misrepresentation of an item for sale. Item listings should clearly represent and display the actual Item that the Buyer is negotiating for. A violation will be recorded against Sellers who misrepresent an Item, falsify information in a listing, deliver Items other than what is listed, Sell copies or fakes of original Items, or in any way Sell an Item to the Buyer under the pretense that it is something else.
  • Providing incorrect or outdated Contact Information. Contact information must be valid in order to perform transactions on Trashbank. Providing incorrect information will result in a Violation. If your contact information changes (if you move, etc.), please update your Contact Information as soon as possible to avoid a Violation.
  • Using someone else's User ID. Using another user's ID, for any purpose, constitutes a Violation. Performing transactions under someone else's ID, using another ID to help build your rating, "stuffing" the queue to misrepresent the demand of your Item, or using another User's ID to attack or leave negative ratings on other Users are all examples of Violations.
  • User Rating Threat/Extortion/Solicitation. The User Rating system has been put into place as a reference base for other Users to determine how a User performs transactions within the Trashbank community. Threatening other Users with negative ratings unless they comply with certain demands, prices, etc. is a Violation of the system. Additionally, selling, trading or exchanging positive ratings in any way outside of normal function will not be tolerated. Ratings are to be left as an accurate, honest depiction of how You felt the User behaved in the negotiation.
  • Using Trashbank system for advertising, solicitation or "SPAM" lists. Trashbank is an online marketplace for Traders, Buyers and Sellers to trade, move and purchase products in a more efficient manner. Use of listings for the purpose of advertising, solicitation of services or any other purpose not related to Trashbank is a Violation.
  • Misuse or abuse of other users' personal information. Trashbank prides itself on maintaining our Users' privacy. Publishing, selling, exchanging, distributing or using another User's personal information in any way outside of completing the transaction is a Violation. Additionally, contacting another User for any purpose outside of the closing of a transaction is a Violation. For further information regarding this, please see our Privacy Policy.
  • Use of profanity in listings or communication. Trashbank routinely checks listings for profanity and other questionable content. Profanity will not be tolerated in the Item listing, the Ask a Question portion or in communications between Buyers and Sellers or with Trashbank. Profanity in any of the above listed forms will result in a Violation being placed on your account, and may also result in the removal of your listing. It is important to note, however, that if the use is extreme, defamatory, or contains racial or ethnic slurs, hate messages, etc., it will be considered a Zero Tolerance offense and be enforced accordingly. (See below)
  • Creating a new User account to escape bad reputation or after being indefinitely suspended. The ratings and violations systems have been put into place to help other Users see how You do business online. Any attempt to deceive Users are Violations.
  • Wrongful accusations against other Users within the Trashbank community. False accusations and misrepresentations in reporting of offenses by other Users will not be tolerated by Trashbank, and are Violations by the reporting User.
    Zero tolerance offenses are the most serious offenses in the Trashbank community. If, after investigation, it is determined that the reported offense is a Zero Tolerance offense, permanent suspension of your account will go into effect immediately.
Examples of Zero Tolerance offenses:
  • Under age users. Minors (people under the age of majority in their state or province of residence) are not eligible to use our services. Violation of this policy is a Zero Tolerance offense, and your account will be suspended immediately. When you reach the age of majority, however, you will be permitted to rejoin Trashbank.
  • Representing as a Trashbank or Trashbank, LLC employee. Any attempt to represent yourself in any way as an employee of either Trashbank or Trashbank, LLC is a Zero Tolerance offense.
  • Intentional use of false contact information (including credit card information, addresses, and inactive email accounts). In order to transact in the Trashbank community, you must provide accurate, valid contact and billing information. Intentional failure to do so will result in the prompt removal of your account.
  • Use of slanderous remarks, hate messages, racial or ethnic slurs, or other defamatory remarks. Any use of the aforementioned in descriptions, Ask a Question, email correspondence between the Buyer and Seller or with Trashbank will not be tolerated.
  • Threats of bodily harm, extortion or blackmail. Any such threats will result in the immediate permanent suspension of the offending User's account.
  • Interfering with Trashbank Site or operations. Any attempt to interfere with, cause damage to, or in any way abuse or violate the security and integrity of the Trashbank system is a Zero Tolerance offense. Additionally, Trashbank may report such activity to the appropriate law enforcement authorities.
  • Failure to participate in the reporting and investigation process. Failure to respond in a timely fashion to a notice that an investigation that could result in the temporary or permanent suspension of your account is a Zero Tolerance offense and your account will be suspended permanently.
Please note that every case is different, and Trashbank will take each reported account into consideration during the investigation process before making a decision. Violations and Zero Tolerance offenses are not limited to the above-listed offenses. If an offense has been investigated that does not fall into any pre-defined category, Trashbank reserves the right to suspend any User or remove any listing.

Please note that other than noting violations and/or temporarily or permanently suspending an account, Trashbank will not take any other action. Under no circumstances will we attempt to avoid a sale or compel its completion. These remedies are only available through a court or other mutually acceptable third party.

USER FURTHER AGREES THAT Trashbank SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES ARISING FROM INTERRUPTION, SUSPENSION OR TERMINATION OF SERVICE, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL CONSEQUENTIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, WHETHER SUCH INTERRUPTION, SUSPENSION OR TERMINATION WAS JUSTIFIED OR NOT, NEGLIGENT OR INTENTIONAL, INADVERTENT OR ADVERTENT.

Welcome to Trashbank.com (“Trashbank”).

By placing banner advertisements on the Trashbank Website (“the Site” or “our Site”) through any device or service, you accept and agree to be bound by these Terms of Use.

Modifications of Terms: Trashbank reserves the right to make changes to the Site, this Agreement, or the policies incorporated herein by reference, with or without notice. Therefore, it is recommended that You regularly visit this page and familiarize Yourself with the latest version of this Agreement. Your continued use of our Site will signify Your acceptance of any revised Terms. This Agreement may not be otherwise be amended, except in writing, signed by You and Trashbank, LLC.

1. Payment: Initial payment is due at the time You upload Your banner advertisement to Trashbank. The Advertiser assumes full responsibility for paying for the ad. The Advertiser shall pay all charges in U.S. Dollars.

The Advertiser acknowledges and agrees that any credit card and related billing and payment information that the Advertiser provides to Trashbank may be shared by Trashbank with companies who work on Trashbank's behalf, such as payment processors and/or credit agencies, solely for the purposes of checking credit and effecting payment to Trashbank.

Once a banner ad is submitted and posted, there will be no refund of payment (full or partial). No refund will be issued for the unavailability of services including unavailability of servers or networks. No refund will be issued if Trashbank removes a banner advertisement or terminates an Advertiser's account (see section 2. Banner Advertisement Content and section 4. Termination of Advertiser's Account below).

2. Banner Advertisement Content: All banner advertisements are subject to Trashbank's content standards. The Advertiser acknowledges that the sole obligation of Trashbank is to display an advertisement from the Advertiser which conforms to the specifications set out in Banner Help section of the Site.

Banner images must be GIF or JPG image files. Trashbank will render the banners in 120 pixels x 60 pixels (w x h). If You upload a banner image not in these dimensions, Trashbank will proportionally scale Your banner image closest to 120 x 60. Trashbank is not responsible for the quality of the visual appearance of the banner ad.

Once a banner ad is posted its content, format, and bid price are locked for thirty days and will not be changed. Requests to change the content or appearance of ad must be submitted in writing to advertise@trashbank.com. Any changes to the content or appearance of an ad and the timing of those changes are at the sole discretion of Trashbank.

Trashbank will determine acceptable content for banner advertising and reserves the right to remove any banner ad at any time if it deems the content to be unacceptable. Unacceptable content includes but is not limited to:
  • banner ads which contain material that infringes the rights of others (including but not limited to copyright and other intellectual property rights) or which promote copyright piracy (i.e., unauthorized MP3s, roms, 'warez', emulators, or cracks, etc.)
  • banner ads with pornography, adult content, sexual or erotic material or banner ads that contain links to such content
  • banner ads with gratuitous displays of violence, obscene or vulgar language, and abusive content or content which endorses or threatens physical harm
  • banner ads promoting any type of hate-mongering (i.e., racial, political, ethnic, religious, gender-based, sexuality-based or personal, etc.)
  • banner ads that participate in or transmit inappropriate newsgroup postings or unsolicited e-mail (spam)
  • banner ads promoting any type of illegal substance or activity (i.e., how to build a bomb, hacking, 'phreaking', etc.)
  • banner ads with illegal, false or deceptive investment advice and money-making opportunities
  • banner ads that provide incentives of any nature to require or encourage users to click on paid links and ad banners (i.e., charity, sweepstakes, etc.)
  • banner ads with any type of content reasonable public consensus deems to be improper or inappropriate.
At any time, at its sole discretion, Trashbank may discontinue running Your ad(s), for any reason including without limitation, if Trashbank judges that Your ad(s) do not meet Trashbank's content standards or would be potentially actionable. This right to remove an ad does not constitute endorsement of any ad that is accepted by Trashbank, nor does it constitute a warranty that Trashbank will continue to run an ad once posted.

3. Banner Advertisement Positioning: The specific positioning of the banner advertisement will be as determined by Trashbank according to the rules set out in Banner Help section of the Site and at Trashbank's sole discretion. The ads from the 30 highest offers will be rendered into 30 reserved spots of the ad space. These 30 ads are presented in order by price, starting with the ad with the highest bid price and time posted. Ads with bids not in the top 30 are randomly generated and are displayed in the 10 slots below the reserved spots at each page refresh. Your ad's position will adjust in accordance with the posting and expiration of other people's ads.

At the time a banner ad is submitted Trashbank will inform You of the ad's position at that moment in comparison with other posted ads in that category. This information is approximate. Because this advertising system is dynamic, the banner position in the final review prior to submission is not guaranteed. If another Advertiser submits a higher or equal bid during the time You execute the final submission step, Your banner position will be adjusted accordingly.

Trashbank reserves the right to change ad positioning rules at any time and is not obligated to inform the Advertiser.

Trashbank offers no guarantee of the frequency of display of banner ads allocated to the random spot category. The display sequence of random banner ads is generated randomly and not on an equal timed rotation.

Trashbank will issue no refunds on the basis of banner ad placement.
