Gumtree Singapore Terms of Use.

Welcome to www.gumtree.sg ("Gumtree"). Thanks for stopping by. By accessing Gumtree you are agreeing to adhere to the following terms of use (the "Terms of Use"), which are designed to make sure that Gumtree works for everyone. Gumtree is provided to you by Marktplaats B.V., Wibautstraat 224-2, 1097 DN Amsterdam, The Netherlands. This policy is effective July 19, 2012.

Using Gumtree. As a condition of your use of Gumtree you agree that you will post in the appropriate category or area and will not do any of the following bad things:

  • violate any laws or regulations of any applicable jurisdiction;
  • violate ourProhibited Content Policy>] or any other Gumtree policy in force from time to time or post any threatening, abusive or defamatory material; ;
  • be false or misleading;
  • infringe any third-party right;
  • distribute or contain spam, chain letters, or pyramid schemes;
  • distribute viruses or any other technologies that may harm Gumtree or the interests or property of Gumtree users;
  • impose an unreasonable load on our infrastructure or interfere with the proper working of Gumtree;
  • copy, modify, or distribute any other person's content without that person's express consent;
  • use any robot spider, scraper or other automated means to access Gumtree and collect content for any purpose without our express written permission;
  • harvest or otherwise collect information about others, including email addresses, without their consent;
  • bypass measures used to prevent or restrict access to Gumtree.

Abusing Gumtree. Please use the reporting system described below to tell us about any problems or offensive content so that together we can keep the site working properly. Without limiting any other remedies available to us, we may issue warnings, limit or terminate our service, remove hosted content and take technical or legal steps to keep users off Gumtree if we think that they are creating problems or acting inconsistently with the letter or spirit of our policies. However, whether we decide to take any of these steps, remove hosted content or keep a user off Gumtree or not, we do not accept any liability or responsibility for monitoring Gumtree or for unauthorized or unlawful content on Gumtree or the use of Gumtree by users..

Global Marketplace. Some of Gumtree's features may allow your ad to be displayed on other sites that are part of the global Gumtree community, like on eBay or our classifieds sites in other countries. By using Gumtree, you agree that your ads can be displayed on these other sites. The terms for our other sites are similar to these Terms of Use, but you may be subject to additional laws or other restrictions in the countries where your ad is posted. When you choose to post your ad to another site, you will be responsible for ensuring that it does not violate our other site policies. We may remove your ad if it is flagged on any of our sites, or if we believe it causes problems or violates any applicable law or Gumtree policy.

Fees and Services. Using Gumtree is generally free. We may charge fees for certain services. If the service you use charges a fee, you will be able to review and accept that charge and any additional terms and conditions applicable to that service at the time of purchase. Our fees are quoted in Singapore Dollars, and we may change them from time to time. We will notify you of changes to our fee policy by posting such changes on the site. We may choose to temporarily change our fees for promotional events or new services; these changes are effective when we announce the promotional event or new service. Our fees are non-refundable, and you are responsible for paying them when they're due. If you don't, we may limit your ability to use the services. If your payment method fails or your account is past due, we may collect fees owed using other collection mechanisms. For accounts over 180 days past due, we may deduct the amount owed from your PayPal account balance.

Content. Gumtree contains stuff from us, you, and other users. You agree not to copy, modify, or distribute content on Gumtree, our copyrights or trademarks. When you give us content, you are granting us and representing and warranting that you have the right to grant us, a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, fully paid-up, royalty-free, sub-licensable right to exercise the copyright, publicity, and database rights to that content. We need these rights to host and display your content. If you believe that your rights have been violated, please notify our designated copyright agent at Gumtree Customer Support by following the process set out below and we will investigate the matter. We reserve the right to remove content where we have grounds for suspecting the violation of these Terms of Use, any applicable law, any Gumtree policy or the violation or potential violation of any party’s rights.

Reporting Intellectual Property Infringements (Verified Rights Owners - VeRO).Do not post content that infringes the rights of third parties. This includes, but is not limited to, content that infringes on intellectual property rights such as rights in designs, copyright and trademarks (e.g. offering counterfeit items for sale). We reserve the right to remove content where we have grounds for suspecting the violation of these Terms of Use, other Gumtree policies, any applicable law or of any party's rights. The following steps are for reporting a listing to Gumtree that you believe to be infringing on your intellectual property rights. Only the owner of the intellectual property rights in question can report potentially infringing items or listings through Gumtree's VeRO Program. If you have a good faith belief that a listing on Gumtree infringes your copyright, trademark, or other intellectual property right, all you need to do is download our Notice of Claimed Infringement (NOCI) form, fill it out, and fax it to Gumtree on +1 647 723 7091. After we receive your first NOCI, Gumtree will confirm your enrolment in our program and send you the instructions on how to submit future reports electronically.

Liability. Nothing in these Terms of Use shall limit our liability for fraudulent misrepresentation or for death or personal injury resulting from our negligence. You agree not to hold us responsible for things other users post or do.

We do not review users' postings and are not involved in the actual transactions between users. As most of the stuff on Gumtree comes from other users, we do not guarantee or give any warranty or make any representation as to the accuracy and content of postings or user communications or the quality, safety, or legality of what is offered.

In no event do we accept liability of any description for the posting of any unlawful, threatening, abusive, defamatory, obscene or indecent information or material of any kind including any such information or material which violates or infringes upon the rights of any other person or which constitutes or encourages conduct that would be a criminal offence, give rise to civil liability or otherwise violate any applicable law.

We also cannot guarantee continuous, error free or secure access to our services or that defects in the service will be corrected. While we will use reasonable efforts to maintain an uninterrupted service, we cannot guarantee this and we do not give any warranty nor make any representation (whether express or implied) regarding the availability of the Gumtree site or any other Gumtree services.

Accordingly, to the extent legally permitted, we expressly disclaim all warranties, representations and conditions, express or implied, including those of quality, merchantability, merchantable quality, durability, fitness for a particular purpose and those arising by statute. We shall not be liable for any loss, whether of money (including profit), goodwill, or reputation, or any special, indirect, or consequential damages arising out of your use of Gumtree, even if you advise us or we could reasonably foresee the possibility of any such damage occurring. Some jurisdictions do not allow the disclaimer of warranties or exclusion of damages, so such disclaimers and exclusions shall only apply to the extent permitted by law.

Despite the previous paragraph, if we are found to be liable, our total liability to you or any third party (whether in contract, tort, negligence, strict liability in tort, by statute or otherwise) shall be limited to the greater of (a) the total fees you pay to us in the 12 months prior to the action giving rise to any such liability, and (b) 200 Singapore Dollars.

Personal Information. By using Gumtree, you agree to the collection, transfer, storage and use of your personal information by Marktplaats B.V. (the "data controller") on servers located in the United States, the European Union and elsewhere as further described in our Privacy Policy.

General. These Terms of Use and the other Gumtree policies posted on Gumtree from time to time constitute the entire agreement between Marktplaats B.V. and you, superseding all prior agreements.

These Terms of Use are governed by the laws of the Netherlands. We both submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Amsterdam, The Netherlands. This won't affect your statutory rights if you are a consumer and applicable consumer law requires application of another law (such as the law of your country of residence) for certain topics.

If we don't enforce any particular provision, we are not waiving our right to do so later. If a court strikes down any of the provisions of these Terms of Use, the remaining provisions will survive. We may automatically assign these Terms of Use in our sole and absolute discretion. Except for notices relating to illegal or infringing content, all notices sent to us by you must be sent by registered mail to:

Marktplaats B.V.
Wibautstraat 224-2
