MISUSE OF THE WEBSITE. To help us ensure the proper functioning of the Website, we ask users to use the "flagging" or "marking" system
to inform us of any problems or offensive content that they may observe. We may restrict or shut down our service, remove the content hosted therein and
adopt technical or legal measures to exclude users from LoQUo if we believe that they are causing problems or acting in a manner contrary to the spirit or
form of our policies, regardless of any payments that they may have made to use the Website or its supplementary services. However, whether or not we decide
to withdraw a user's access to the Website and, unless LoQUo has effectively become aware of the existence of any illegal content-as this is defined in the
legislation in force-and failed to act expeditiously to withdraw it, we accept no liability for the legality of the content published or derived from the
surveillance of the Website.
GLOBAL COMMUNITY. Some functions of the Website permit your advert to be shown on other sites that form part of the eBay global community.
By using this Website you accept that your adverts may be shown on such sites and that they may be automatically translated for this purpose.
The terms and conditions applicable to such sites are similar to these terms; however, you will be bound by the legislation and limitations of the
countries in which your advert is published. If you decide to allow your advert to be published on other sites, you will be responsible for ensuring that
such advert does not infringe the policies and terms of such sites. Any adverts that you publish on our site may be removed by us if they have been marked
using the aforementioned "flagging" system or if we consider that they cause problems or infringe any law or policy.
RATES AND SERVICES. Use of the Website is usually free. However, certain services are subject to a charge. If you use a service that
has an associated charge, you must review and accept the conditions thereof. These will appear when you submit your advert. Our rates are charged in euros
and may be updated from time to time. We will inform you of any change in our rates by publishing them on our Website. Such changes will enter into force
immediately and will be applicable to any new adverts that you publish on the Website. We may change our rates for promotions or new services.
Any such changes will enter into force on the date indicated in the communication announcing the promotion or new service.
Charges are not reimbursable. You are responsible for promptly paying all applicable rates and taxes arising in relation to the use of our Website and
services, using a valid method of payment. In the event of problems with your method of payment or failure to pay the relevant rates, we reserve the
right to collect any amounts owed via other collection mechanisms. We may engage the services of debt collection agencies or adopt legal measures for
this purpose. This means that you will have to pay the amount owed, plus any legally-established late-payment interest.
