    DISCLAIMER
    Whilst Vxzoc.com staff will attempt to keep the forum free from objectionable content, it is impossible for us to read each and every post as soon as it is submitted. Therefore you acknowledge that all posts made to these forums express the sole views and opinions of the author and not that of other members or staff of Vxzoc.com (except for posts by these people), therefore Vxzoc.com will not be held liable. Furthermore you warrant that by registering with Vxzoc.com or just browsing our forums, you will indemnify Vxzoc.com from any and all legal liability both civil, criminal, or otherwise.

    BUYING & SELLING
    We want you to enjoy buying and selling your unwanted stuff on Vxzoc.com, but remember the golden rule: "Buyer Beware!" Car forums all over the internet are full of members who have been scammed by the most unlikliest of scammers, so excercise some basic caution, even if it is someone you have dealt with before or someone who has been on the forum for a while.

    Vxzoc.com will not be held responsible if things go wrong, it's up to the buyer and the seller to make a deal both parties are happy with. Always get a land-line telephone number, cell phone number and the address of the seller or buyer so you have some contact details should things not go as planned. Selling ON BEHALF OF is not permitted, If you dont own the item or have it in your posession then you may not sell it on this forum.

    The same rules also apply should you purchase goods from any traders or affiliates associated with Vxzoc.com.

    If you want to sell your stuff in our community, we want to get to know you first. Therefore EVERY member posting ANY items FOR SALE must have a minimum of 100 posts AND you must have been a member for over 30 days. Posts just containing "hello" "me too", "lol", etc., or posts considered to be spam just to get your post count up to the target 100 times, WILL NOT COUNT. Whilst we cannot protect anyone from a scam we have some straightforward rules regarding buying and selling. If these rules aren't adhered to, we reserve the right to delete your advert.

    All items for sale must be by a member eligible to sell, the listing MUST include a photo of the item(s) for sale & a PRICE must be stated. If these requirements are not met your listing WILL be removed by a member of staff, If you continue to post out side of the rules we will remove your right to sell on Vxzoc.com.

    SELLING: As a seller, you have a duty to ensure your advert is as accurate as possible. if you're selling a part "as new", then don't expect something covered in rust, dents, scratches and in a tatty box, to be accepted "as new". Be precise when you create your advert and state whether postage is included. Include a picture of the item with your username on a piece of paper together with the date. This will give some proof that you do indeed have the item to sell in the first place.

    BUYING: It is the buyers responsibility to ask as many questions as you need to in order to satisfy yourself regarding the suitability and condition of a for sale item that you wish to purchase.

    IMAGE RESTRICTIONS
    We have to have size restrictions on forum images for signatures, avatars and members profile pictures because they impact on the "server traffic" to our Server provider. This means that the bigger these image are, the more bandwidth they consume to show up on someones computer screen and the slower things run, so please keep to the sizes and dimensions we request. Also make sure any image used for an avatar, signature or profile picture falls within our pornography guidelines. Signatures, avatars and profile pictures must not advertise other business' or websites unless permission has been obtained from Vxzoc.com admin. We are a family-orientated forum so any pictures or graphics deemed offensive by Vxzoc.com admin will be removed and the member reprimanded. Image sizes and restrictions are as follows:

    AVATARS:
    Avatars are viewable by everyone, so any user Avatar must be free from any lewd profane material or acknowledged swear words or similar. The maximum size permitted for Avatars is a 110x84 pixel frame with a file size of no more than 50kb. Lightly animated GIF files are allowed, but static JPG files are preferred. Avatars breaking these rules will be removed by admin and a pm sent. If this rule is broken your avatar may be removed.

    SIGNATURES:
    A signature may contain one or more images but they must fit within a box with maximum dimensions of 400 x 75 pixels (width x height) and with a maximum (combined) file size of 100k. No text will be allowed under the maximum picture allowed, If no images are used then up to 4 consecutive lines of normal (size3) or smaller text is permitted. Do not pad out your text lines with blanks lines. A line of text is defined as having a maximum length of 400 pixels. If you want to turn the signature off in the future, you can come back and edit your post. If you have specified a signature in your profile, the box will be automatically ticked for you. Signatures breaking these rules will be removed by admin. If this rule is broken your ability to display signatures will be removed.
