Terms and Conditions
Unfortunately as much as we would all like to be in a 100% trusting community & Marketplace as we all know that is not how the internet works. It is for that reason and that reason only we have to have some guidance and rules in place to try and keep everything on an even and safe level. Although the Skint Market T&C’s are to be taken seriously and by using the Skint Market services all members are agreeing to abide by any rules outlined here I as admin and a Skint Market member hope I will never have to enforce any of the rules on any other member, I don’t see why we cannot all create a thriving community where everyone benefits and no one loses.
While you hold all responsibility for your safety and behaviour when using the Skint Market there are a number of advisory points we would like to encourage you to follow. If collection has been arranged then we strongly advice that both seller & buyer attend the meeting with a relative or friend and arrange for it to take place within a public area. We cannot stress enough the importance of using paypal for ALL payment transactions, including collection. Never sell to anyone under the age of 18 years of age, it is your responsibility to ask for identification to check this if in doubt. We encourage you to report members who you suspect of breaking the T&C's of the Skint Market at all times. Beware of unrealistic products or prices, if it seems too good to be true then it probably is, always exercise caution. Do your research on products, sellers & buyers wherever possible, at the very least always check members profiles and ratings. In the interest of encouraging the trustworthiness of the Skint Market, please always rate a buyer or seller after a transaction and leave comments on their profile. ALWAYS SAFETY FIRST, if you are unsure then leave it!
The Skint Market and the Skint Market community work together to keep the Skint Market working properly and the community safe. Please report problems, offensive content and policy breaches to us using the reporting system. Without limiting other remedies, we may issue warnings, limit or terminate our service, remove hosted content and take technical and legal steps to keep users off the Skint Market if we think that they are creating problems, infringing the rights of third parties or acting inconsistently with the letter or spirit of our policies (including, without limitation, circumventing temporary or permanent suspensions or harassing the Skint Market admin or other users).

In general business adverts are not allowed however the Skint Market would like to encourage startup and creative sole traders such as coil makers. If you are a business/dealer/sole trader and would like to advertise your products on Skint Market then first of all you must choose the dealer option when setting up your account, secondly you must contact me (Skint Vaper) to double check if your ad's are acceptable.
