TERMS & CONDITIONS
Eligibility for Membership
Our services are available only to individuals who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. Without limiting the foregoing, our services are not available to minors. If you do not qualify, please do not use our services.
Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted in U.S. Dollars. You are responsible for paying all applicable taxes and other costs you incur to bid, buy, procure a listing from us or access our servers. We may in our sole discretion add, delete or change some or all of our services at any time. Also, additional cost for some transactions where admin and logistics charges may apply.
The Website is only a venue. Our site acts as the venue for buyers and sellers to solicit business. Although, we are involved in the actual transaction between buyers and sellers, however, we have no control over the quality, safety or legality of the items advertised, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of sellers to sell items or the ability of buyers to buy items. We cannot and do not control whether or not sellers will complete the sale of items they offer. We cannot and do not control whether or not buyers will complete the purchase of items they have bid on. In addition, note that there are risks of dealing with people acting under false pretense. Because we do not and cannot control the action of others, in the event that you have a dispute with one or more users, you release VetSquare.com Pte Ltd. (and our agents and employees and any third party partners and/or licensees of VetSquare.com Pte Ltd.) from 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. For legal reasons, we cannot nor do we try to control the information provided by other users, which is made available through our system. We expect that you will use caution -- and common sense -- when using our site.
Bidding and Buying
If you bid on an item and your bid is accepted by the seller (or the buyer in the case of a "name your own price" bid), you are obligated to complete the transaction. Bidding has the same effect in law as entering into a firm purchase order. Bids are not retractable except in exceptional circumstances such as the seller (or buyer) materially changing the description of the item after your bid. If you choose to bid on restricted use products, you are certifying that you have the legal right to purchase these products.
Listing and Selling
Listings are text descriptions on the Website selected by you from our product database. If you receive one or more bids at or above your stated minimum, then you are obligated to complete the transaction.
Your information includes any information you provide to us or other users during the registration, bidding or listing process. With respect to Your Information, you agree that:

- shall not knowingly infringe any third party's local and International copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret or other proprietary rights or rights of publicity or privacy;

- are identical to other items you have up for bid but are priced lower than your bid item's minimum bid amount;
- are concurrently listed for bid anywhere other than the Website; or
- you do not have a right to link to or include. Furthermore, you may not post on our site or sell through our site any item that, by paying to us the transaction fee, could cause us to violate any applicable law, statute, ordinance or regulation.
No Price Manipulation
Buyers or Sellers may not manipulate the price of their item, either by using a shill (a secondary account or third party) or by bidding themselves.
You may not use any device, software or routine to interfere or attempt to interfere with the proper working of the Website or any bid being conducted on our site. You may not take any action, which imposes an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on our infrastructure. You may not disclose or share your password to any third parties or use your password for any unauthorized purpose.
We may terminate your membership and any of your current bids immediately if you breach this Agreement or if we are unable to verify or authenticate any information you provide to us.
