Welcome to the UHUBOR User Agreement (the “Agreement”). This Agreement is between UHUBOR Communications Ltd. (“UHUBOR”, “us”, “we” or “our”), the owner and operator of www.UHUBOR.com (the “Site”) and the UHUBOR mobile application (“Apps”), and you (“you” or “your” or “user(s)”), a user of the Site and/or Apps (together, the “Services”).

2. Overview of Services
UHUBOR operates an online marketplace where users can purchase and rent the goods, services and information of other users via the Services. The actual contract for sale is directly between the seller and buyer. UHUBOR is not a seller of goods, services or information, and is not a traditional auctioneer.
While we may provide pricing, shipping, listing, sourcing and other guidance in our Services, such guidance is solely informational and you may decide to follow it or not. In addition, while we may help facilitate the resolution of disputes between users, UHUBOR has no control over and does not guarantee the existence, quality, safety or legality of items advertised; the truth or accuracy of users’ content or listings; the ability of sellers to sell items; the ability of buyers to pay for items; or that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction or return an item. Use of the Services is at your sole risk and liability.

8. Fees and Payment Processing
Access, use and/or download of the Services and certain of its features, tools and/or activities may require payment of a fee (“Service Fees”). Service Fees are non-refundable.
We use third party payment processors in order to facilitate user payments (the “Payment Processor”).

To protect UHUBOR from risk of liability for your actions as a seller, UHUBOR may at times recommend that the Payment Processor restrict access to funds in your Payment Processor account based on certain factors, including, but not limited to, selling history, seller performance, returns, riskiness of the listing category or transaction value. This may result in the Payment Processor restricting funds in your Payment Processor account.
