Use of Motofoto Listings and Private Sale Services
Motofoto includes a vehicle listing and information service, sometimes referred to as Motofoto Pay, that brings together buyers and sellers, and a secure private vehicle sales platform (“Platform”) through which buyers and sellers can conduct vehicle sales transactions. The information on vehicles provided through these services and on the Site is supplied by the seller or other third parties; Motofoto is not responsible for the accuracy of such information. Motofoto provides these services and the Site and all information and materials without conditions, representations or warranties of any kind, either expressed or implied. Motofoto is not a party to any transaction between vehicle buyers and sellers that occurs through the Site or that originates from information found on the Site. Prices do not include additional fees such as government fees and taxes, title and registration fees, licensing and plate fees, finance charges, dealer document preparation fees, and emission testing.
FOR BOTH THE LISTINGS SERVICE AND THE PLATFORM, MOTOFOTO IS NOT AN AUTOMOBILE BROKER OR DEALER AND DOES NOT SELL, EXCHANGE, BUY, OR OFFER FOR SALE, NEGOTIATE OR ATTEMPT TO NEGOTIATE, A SALE OR EXCHANGE OF AN INTEREST IN ANY VEHICLE LISTED FOR SALE ON OUR SITE. Motofoto does not hold or possess title for any vehicle listed for sale on our Site and Motofoto is not a party to any vehicle sale contract between vehicle buyers and sellers that originates on or through the Site.
All buyers and sellers must be at least 18 years old to use the Site and by using the Site, you represent that you are at least 18 years old. Information about a particular vehicle is supplied by the seller, not by Motofoto, and the buyer is solely responsible for reading the full vehicle listing before making a commitment to buy. The price and other terms of any sale are arranged after negotiation between the buyer and the seller. Motofoto is not responsible for incorrect information given by buyers or sellers, including information regarding vehicles, including but not limited to vehicle mileage, condition, history, or photos of vehicles. AutoCheck Vehicle History reports are provided for informational purposes only from an unaffiliated third-party vehicle report provider, and Motofoto is not responsible for any incorrect information or mistakes. We cannot verify the information/photos that sellers supply or guarantee the vehicles they offer. When using this Site, please use common sense and good judgment. When dealing with prospective purchasers/sellers, we urge you to take the same precautions you would take if you were purchasing/selling a car through a classified ad in the newspaper or any other private sales transaction.
MOTOFOTO MAKES NO GUARANTEES, WARRANTEES OR REPRESENTATIONS REGARDING ANY VEHICLES LISTED FOR SALE OR SOLD ON OUR SITE. VEHICLE SALES ARE “AS IS”. VEHICLE SALES ARE BETWEEN THE BUYER AND THE SELLER ONLY. MOTOFOTO DOES NOT OWN, INSPECT, BUY, OR SELL, ANY VEHICLES LISTED FOR SALE ON OUR SITE. ANY DISPUTE ABOUT THE CONDITION OF A VEHICLE SOLD THROUGH THE SITE IS BETWEEN THE BUYER AND SELLER ONLY. MOTOFOTO DOES NOT HOLD OR POSSESS TITLE FOR ANY VEHICLE LISTED FOR SALE ON OUR SITE.
In addition, as a Platform seller you represent and warrant:
All applications for credit and/or lending arrangements are through one or more unaffiliated third-party providers over whom Motofoto has no control. Any application for credit or lending arrangement, terms, conditions, warranties, or representations associated with any application for credit or lending arrangement, is solely between you and any such third-party provider. Motofoto is not responsible or liable for any loss or damage incurred as the result of such application for credit or lending arrangement.The following terms also apply to vehicle purchases and sales through the Platform:
Processing Payments through the Private Sale Platform
Certain vehicle sales transactions through the Platform may use Motofoto’ online payment processing services, where Motofoto manages receipt of payments on behalf of sellers (such management described herein as "managed payments" or similar references). For vehicles offered for sale on the Platform by sellers using managed payments accounts, such vehicles may be paid for using certain payment methods that Motofoto may in its sole discretion make available, and Motofoto will manage settlement of the payment to sellers. The contract for sale underlying the vehicle purchase is directly concluded between seller and the buyer in the same manner as for transactions for which Motofoto does not manage payments.
Motofoto may use different third party payment service providers to assist in providing the managed payments experience, including companies that process payments, perform risk assessments or compliance checks, verify identity and validate payment methods.
By completing purchases from sellers who use managed payments, buyers authorize Motofoto to initiate payments using the buyers' selected payment method and collect the transaction amounts on behalf of sellers. BUYERS AGREE AND UNDERSTAND THAT MOTOFOTO HAS BEEN APPOINTED AS AN AGENT OF SELLERS WHO USE MANAGED PAYMENTS FOR THE LIMITED PURPOSE OF ACCEPTING SUCH PAYMENTS ON BEHALF OF SELLERS. Accordingly, payments received by Motofoto from buyers satisfy buyers' obligations to pay sellers in the amount of payments received.If you are a buyer completing a purchase from a seller that is using managed payments:
