Additionally, the AOPA Websites may themselves contain additional terms that govern particular features or offers (for example, sweepstakes or chat areas).

In the event that any of the terms, conditions, and notices contained herein conflict with the terms and guidelines contained within any particular AOPA Website, then these terms shall control.

Modification of These Terms of Use

AOPA reserves the right to change the terms, conditions, and notices under which the AOPA Websites are offered, including but not limited to the charges associated with the use of the AOPA Websites. You are responsible for regularly reviewing these terms and conditions.

The AOPA Websites may contain links to other Websites ("Linked Sites"). The Linked Sites are not under the control of AOPA and AOPA is not responsible for the contents of any Linked Site, including without limitation any link contained in a Linked Site, or any changes or updates to a Linked Site. AOPA is not responsible for webcasting or any other form of transmission received from any Linked Site. AOPA is providing these links to you only as a convenience, and the inclusion of any link does not imply endorsement by AOPA of the site or any association with its operators.

You may not obtain or attempt to obtain any materials or information through any means not intentionally made available or provided for through the AOPA Websites.

Use of Communication Services

The AOPA Websites may contain bulletin board services, chat areas, news groups, forums, communities, personal web pages, calendars, and/or other message or communication facilities designed to enable you to communicate with the public at large or with a group (collectively, "Communication Services"). You agree to use the Communication Services only to post, send, and receive messages and material that are proper and related to the particular Communication Service. By way of example, and not as a limitation, you agree that when using a Communication Service, you will not:

  • Defame, abuse, harass, stalk, threaten, or otherwise violate the legal rights (such as rights of privacy and publicity) of others.
  • Publish, post, upload, distribute, or disseminate any inappropriate, profane, defamatory, infringing, obscene, indecent, or unlawful topic, name, material, or information.
  • Upload files that contain software or other material protected by intellectual property laws (or by rights of privacy or publicity) unless you own or control the rights thereto or have received all necessary consents.
  • Upload files that contain viruses, corrupted files, or any other similar software or programs that may damage the operation of another's computer.
  • Advertise or offer to sell or buy any goods or services for any business purpose, unless such Communication Service specifically allows such messages.

  • Download any file posted by another user of a Communication Service that you know, or reasonably should know, cannot be legally distributed in such manner.
  • Falsify or delete any author attributions, legal or other proper notices or proprietary designations, or labels of the origin or source of software or other material contained in a file that is uploaded.

AOPA reserves the right to terminate your access to any or all of the Communication Services at any time without notice for any reason whatsoever.

AOPA reserves the right at all times to disclose any information as necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request, or to edit, refuse to post, or to remove any information or materials, in whole or in part, in AOPA's sole discretion.

Always use caution when giving out any personally identifying information about yourself or your children in any Communication Service. AOPA does not control or endorse the content, messages, or information found in any Communication Service, and, therefore, AOPA specifically disclaims any liability with regard to the Communication Services and any actions resulting from your participation in any Communication Service. Participants are not authorized AOPA spokespersons, and their views do not necessarily reflect those of AOPA.

Materials uploaded to a Communication Service may be subject to posted limitations on usage, reproduction, and/or dissemination. You are responsible for adhering to such limitations if you download the materials.

Materials Provided to AOPA or Posted At Any AOPA Website

AOPA does not claim ownership of the materials you provide to AOPA (including feedback and suggestions) or post, upload, input, or submit to any AOPA Website or its associated services (collectively "Submissions"). However, by posting, uploading, inputting, providing, or submitting your Submission you are granting AOPA, its affiliated companies, and necessary sublicensees permission to use your Submission in connection with the operation of their Internet businesses including, without limitation, the rights to: copy, distribute, transmit, publicly display, publicly perform, reproduce, edit, translate, and reformat your Submission; and to publish your name in connection with your Submission.

No compensation will be paid with respect to the use of your Submission, as provided herein. AOPA is under no obligation to post or use any Submission you may provide and may remove any Submission at any time in AOPA's sole discretion.

By posting, uploading, inputting, providing, or submitting your Submission you warrant and represent that you own or otherwise control all of the rights to your Submission as described in this section including, without limitation, all the rights necessary for you to provide, post, upload, input, or submit the Submissions.

Using the Services

AOPA Auctions & Classifieds are offered solely as a forum for you to use the Services to buy and sell goods. AOPA is not involved in any transaction between you and any other party who uses this Site, and is not acting as your or any other party's agent. AOPA cannot screen, censor, or otherwise control the listings or any transactions, including whether a listing is accurately described, whether an item can be legally purchased or sold in your jurisdiction, or whether a transaction will be completed as described by the seller or the buyer. Further, AOPA cannot control or warrant the behavior of the users of the Services. As such, your use of AOPA Auctions & Classifieds and its Services is at your own risk, and AOPA disclaims any liability with regard to use of the Services and any actions resulting from your or any other party's participation in the Services. You hereby agree to release AOPA, its suppliers, service partners, agents, employees, consultants, and trustees from all claims, demands, and damages, whether actual or consequential, of every kind, whether known or unknown, disclosed or undisclosed, arising out of or relating to any and all listings, transactions, or any other use of AOPA Auctions & Classifieds and the Services. Further, because AOPA is not involved in any transactions between you and other users of the Services, AOPA cannot and will not be involved in resolving any disputes relating to any completed or uncompleted transaction for the purchase or sale of listed goods.

You warrant that you will abide by all additional procedures and guidelines, as modified from time to time, in connection with your use of the Services. You further warrant that you will comply with all applicable laws and regulations regarding use of the Services. Without limitation, by listing an item for sale, you warrant that you have the legal right to sell the item, that the item is not counterfeit, and that it is a genuine and authentic item as described by the seller; by making a bid or offer to purchase, you warrant that you have the legal right to make the bid and the resources to honor the bid.

It is your responsibility to determine whether the purchase or sale of any listed item is authorized by law, statute, or regulation.
