Membership Eligibility

Swap-bot is a service and venue where all adult people (over the age of 18) are welcome to participate. We are committed to a policy of nondiscrimination for all persons regardless of race, sex, color, religion, creed, national origin or ancestry, marital status, sexual orientation, or disability. We encourage all of our coordinators to adopt a similar policy when regulating their swaps. Swap-bot's services are not available to children (persons under the age of 18) or to temporarily or indefinitely suspended Swap-bot members.

Fees and Services

Joining Swap-bot and swapping on Swap-bot is free.

Identity Verification

Swap-bot uses many techniques to verify the accuracy of the information Swap-bot's users provide to Swap-bot when they register on Swap-bot. However, because user verification on the Internet is difficult, Swap-bot cannot and does not confirm each user's purported identity. Thus, Swap-bot has established a user-initiated rating system to help you evaluate with whom you are dealing. Swap-bot also encourages you to communicate directly with your swap coordinators and partners through the tools available on Swap-bot.

Release

Because Swap-bot is a venue, in the event that you have a dispute with one or more users, you release Swap-bot (and Swap-bot's officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) from any and all 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.

Information Control

Swap-bot does not control the information provided by other users that is made available through our system. You may find other users' information to be offensive, harmful, inaccurate, or deceptive. Please use caution, common sense, and practice safe trading when using Swap-bot. Please note that there are also risks of dealing with underage persons or people acting under false pretense. Additionally, there may also be risks dealing with international trade and foreign nationals. By using Swap-bot, you agree to accept such risks and that Swap-bot (and our officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) is not responsible for any and all acts or omissions of users on Swap-bot

Swap Coordinators

Swap coordinators have access to the contact information of all swappers who participate in their swaps. We require that coordinators use this information responsibly and with discretion. Swap coordinators and members are not allowed to publish the contact information of other members in an online public area.

Rating System

Integrity: You may not take any actions that may undermine the integrity of the rating system. If you earn a low percentage rating, your account may be flagged for staff review, at which time your account may be fully or partially suspended.

Export: You acknowledge that your feedback consists of comments left by other users and a composite rating number compiled by Swap-bot. Further, you acknowledge that the composite number, without the feedback comments, does not convey your full user reputation. Because feedback ratings are not designed for any purpose other than for facilitating transactions between Swap-bot users, you agree that you shall not market or export your Swap-bot feedback rating in any venue other than the Swap-bot operated website.

Import: Swap-bot does not provide you with the technical ability to import feedback from other (non-Swap-bot operated) websites to Swap-bot because a composite number, without the corresponding feedback does not reflect your true online reputation within our community.

Breach (Breaking the Rules)

Without limiting other remedies available, Swap-bot may, without prior notice, limit your activity, immediately remove you from swaps, warn Swap-bot's community of your actions, issue a warning, temporarily suspend, indefinitely suspend or terminate your account and refuse to provide our services to you if:

  • you breach this Terms of Use, the Privacy Policy, or other policy documents and community guidelines;
  • Swap-bot is unable to verify or authenticate any of your contact information; or
  • Swap-bot believes that your actions may cause financial loss or legal liability for you, Swap-bot's users or Swap-bot.

Liability Limit

In no event shall Swap-bot, and (as applicable) Swap-bot subsidiaries, officers, directors, employees, or suppliers be liable for lost profits or any special, incidental, or consequential damages arising out of or in connection with our site, our services, or this agreement (however arising, including negligence).

Legal Compliance

You shall comply with all applicable domestic and international laws, statutes, ordinances and regulations regarding your use of our service.

Resolution of Disputes

Swap-bot's goal is to make you happy. In the event a dispute arises between you and Swap-bot, please email Rachel Johnson at rachel [at] swap-bot.com and we will work quickly towards a solution. We encourage you to report all user-to-user disputes to your local law enforcement, postmaster general, or a certified mediation or arbitration entity.
