Terms of Use

  1. We reserve the right to change the following terms at our discretion. By using Cat Planet (‘the site’) you agree to be bound by these terms of use and by the Forum Terms of Use.
  2. Cat Planet makes no guarantee about the validity, authenticity or content of any of the adverts on this website. Adverts and photographs are placed by individual web users and we have no control over the accuracy of data submitted.
  3. Cat Planet exists to provide a point of communication between users and advertisers. It is the responsibility of users to contact the advertisers and to verify the accuracy of information they are given before entering into any negotiations or purchases. If they enter any contract with advertisers they do so at their sole risk. We advise all users to seek professional advice before entering into any purchase or contract for provision of services. Whilst we hope that all advertisers will be honest, truthful and legitimate, we cannot guarantee them to be so. If any users experience problems at the hands of advertisers we would ask that they contact us immediately. In the event that we discover inaccurate information we will do our best to amend or remove it promptly, but in the event that we amend it we can still make no guarantee as to its accuracy.
  4. Although we try our best to ensure that the site is of value to all users Cat Planet offers no warranties that this will be the case.
  5. All information on this site, including but not limited to adverts, postings, information sheets, or photographs, is provided in good faith. Cat Planet can accept no liability to you for any direct or indirect or consequential loss, loss of profit, revenue or good will arising from your use of the Cat Planet website or any of the information contained thereon.
  6. We do not own nor have an interest in the properties, services or items advertised for sale. We do not endorse them, nor offer advice or recommendation as to which should be selected by you. By using this site you agree that the responsibility for selecting and responding to individual adverts is yours alone.
  7. Opinions, statements, and information expressed in adverts and forum postings belong to the advertisers or posters and are not ours.
  8. Our links page provides numerous links to other websites not owned by Cat Planet. Many of the adverts will also contain links to sites outside of Cat Planet. These links are provided for information only and we give no warranty as to their usefulness nor accept any responsibility for their content.
  9. We do not provide advertising services for persons under the age of 18. By posting an advert you guarantee that you are 18 years of age or older.
  10. Any advert found to contain illegal, offensive or objectionable wording, photographs or items for sale will be removed immediately and the member’s membership may be revoked.
  11. Cat Planet may suspend or terminate a membership if the user is found to have engaged in fraudulent or illegal activity. Suspension of membership will be at our discretion. Postings containing ‘spam’, solicitations for ‘business opportunities’, ‘chain letters’, hoax viruses or similar content may result in suspension of membership.
  12. Cat Planet may suspend or terminate a membership if the user is found to have engaged in the ‘cold canvassing’ of Cat Planet members (i.e. the sending of unsolicited ‘spam’ concerning business opportunities, offers to sell or rent their properties or possessions on their behalf, or promotional pieces about other websites intended to try and boost traffic to those sites).
  13. Cat Planet may suspend or terminate a user’s membership if the user is found to have breached forum netiquette, or the Forum Terms of Use, or the Terms of Use applicable to any other parts of the site, or has used the site in any way that falls outside ‘acceptable use’. The definition of ‘acceptable use’ will be made at the sole discretion of Cat Planet.
  14. Cat Planet may suspend or terminate a membership if the user is found to have created duplicate accounts.
  15. Your username and e-mail address, together with other personal information you may choose to supply, is held by us on our database in accordance with the terms expressed in our privacy policy found elsewhere on the site.
  16. Copyright in the contents of, and in all the information contained in, this site, including but not limited to photographs, images and postings, is vested either in Cat Planet or in individual members. All rights are reserved. You may print a copy of any advert for your own record but you may not make use of any copyrighted material for any other purpose without the express consent of the copyright owner(s).
  17. Cat Planet cannot guarantee that any file or program attached to an advert or e-mail is free of computer viruses. Responsibility for protecting yourself against computer viruses rests solely with you. Cat Planet cannot accept any liability for any direct or indirect damage arising from accessing any of the files on the site, nor from corresponding with other members. In the event that you discover an attachment to contain a computer virus we would ask you to notify us immediately.
  18. English Law shall apply to these terms of use, not withstanding the jurisdiction where you are based. By agreeing to these terms of use you agree irrevocably that the Courts of England shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute which may arise out of, under, or in connection with these terms of use.
  19. The ‘Spamming’ of ads (the unnecessary duplication of ads to try and increase response) into our Classifieds Section is a breach of these Terms of Use. Advertisers may place ONE ad per separate item, or legitimate service offered or requested. E.g. If someone works as a registered plumber AND electrician, then an ad may be placed for each service. Further ads for the same services may only be placed at the discretion of CP admin … to cope with awkward areas of geographical coverage, for example.

Please ensure that your ad is LEGAL within the territory in which you operate.
