Terms


WELCOME TO Instamotor. We hope you find it useful. By accessing our servers, websites, or content therefrom (together, "IM"), you agree to these Terms of Use ("TOU").

Terms Of Use Agreement for All Services and Uses

LICENSE. If you are 18 or older, we grant you a limited, revocable, nonexclusive, nonassignable, nonsublicensable license to access IM in compliance with the TOU; unlicensed access is unauthorized. You agree not to license, distribute, make derivative works, display, sell, or "frame" content from IM, excluding content you create and sharing with friends/family. You grant us a perpetual, irrevocable, unlimited, worldwide, fully paid/sublicensable license to use, copy, perform, display, distribute, and make derivative works from content you post.

USE. You agree not to use or provide software (except for general purpose web browsers and email clients, or software expressly licensed by us) or services that interact or interoperate with IM, e.g. for downloading, uploading, posting, flagging, emailing, search, or mobile use. Robots, spiders, scripts, scrapers, crawlers, etc. are prohibited, as are misleading, unsolicited, unlawful, and/or spam postings/email. You agree not to collect users' personal and/or contact information ("PI").

MODERATION. You agree we may moderate IM access and use in our sole discretion, e.g. by blocking (e.g. IP addresses), filtering, deletion, delay, omission, verification, and/or access/account/license termination. You agree (1) not to bypass said moderation, (2) we are not liable for moderating, not moderating, or representations as to moderating, and (3) nothing we say or do waives our right to moderate, or not.

DISCLAIMER. MANY JURISDICTIONS HAVE LAWS PROTECTING CONSUMERS AND OTHER CONTRACT PARTIES, LIMITING THEIR ABILITY TO WAIVE CERTAIN RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES. WE RESPECT SUCH LAWS; NOTHING HEREIN SHALL WAIVE RIGHTS OR RESPONSIBILITIES THAT CANNOT BE WAIVED.

To the extent permitted by law, (1) we make no promise as to IM, its completeness, accuracy, availability, timeliness, propriety, security or reliability; (2) your access and use are at your own risk, and IM is provided "AS IS" and "AS AVAILABLE"; (3) we are not liable for any harm resulting from (a) user content; (b) user conduct, e.g. illegal conduct; (c) your IM use; or (d) our representations; (4) WE AND OUR OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES ("IM ENTITIES"), DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES & CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT; (5) IM ENTITIES ARE NOT LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, OR ANY LOSS (E.G. OF PROFIT, REVENUE, DATA, OR GOODWILL); (6) IN NO EVENT SHALL OUR TOTAL LIABILITY EXCEED $100 OR WHAT YOU PAID US IN THE PAST YEAR.

CLAIMS. You agree (1) any claim, cause of action or dispute ("Claim") arising out of or related to the TOU or your IM use is governed by California ("CA") law regardless of your location or any conflict or choice of law principle; (2) Claims must be resolved exclusively by state or federal court in San Francisco, CA (except we may seek injunctive remedy anywhere); (3) to submit to personal jurisdiction of said courts; (4) any Claim must be filed by 1 year after it arose or be forever barred; (5) not to bring or take part in a class action against IM Entities; (6) (except government agencies) to indemnify IM Entities for any damage, loss, and expense (e.g. legal fees) arising from claims related to your IM use; (7) you are liable for TOU breaches by affiliates (e.g. marketers) paid by you, directly or indirectly (e.g. through an affiliate network); and (8) to pay us for breaching or inducing others to breach the "USE" section, not as a penalty, but as a reasonable estimate of our damages (actual damages are often hard to calculate): $0.10 per server request, $1 per post, email, flag, or account created, $1 per item of PI collected, and $1000 per software distribution, capped at $25,000 per day.

MISC. Users complying with prior written licenses may access IM thereby until authorization is terminated. Otherwise, this is the exclusive and entire agreement between us. If a TOU term is unenforceable, other terms are unaffected. If TOU translations conflict with the English version, English controls. See Privacy Policy for how we collect, use and share data.

Additional Terms Of Use for Sellers

PRICING. You agree that all price information displayed on any vehicle you may list on Instamotor is the full cash price available to any prospective buyer. Prices cannot (1) require certain conditions to be met, (2) be deceitful or harmful to consumers, or (3) violate any local, state, or federal laws, rules and regulations. Examples of (1) conditions, include but are not limited to; qualifying for dealer financing, requiring a large down payment, or qualifying for incentives, such as loyalty, military, or student rebates. Examples of (2) deceitful pricing include, but are not limited to listing the down payment amount only or displaying the monthly payment amount only. Failure to comply with these guidelines may result in modification, deletion, or suspension of vehicle listings or user accounts.

ACCURACY. You agree that all information you provide pertaining to (1) any vehicle you are offering for sale or (2) the dealership which you are representing is accurate to the best of your knowledge. If you are registered with Instamotor as a “Dealer” type seller, you must use the legal entity name of the dealership you are representing, provide the physical address where you conduct official dealership business, and maintain a proper, active, and valid dealership, business, and/or tax license(s) required in your state. Examples of inaccurate information include using photos of a vehicle other than the actual vehicle being offered for sale, intentionally editing or cropping photos to hide a vehicle’s true condition, or misrepresenting or falsifying dealership credentials such as name or address. Failure to comply with these guidelines may result in modification, deletion, or suspension of vehicle listings or user accounts.

CONTENT. By posting a vehicle for sale on Instamotor, you agree to have your post’s content reviewed and moderated by Instamotor. Your free-text inputs, photos, or other information may be modified, redacted, deleted, or censored. We discourage any content that we may deem harmful to Instamotor’s business or users, such as (1) asking users to contact you initially using any method other than the “Contact Seller” button on the vehicle’s Instamotor posting, (2) offering products other than the vehicle itself. Examples include photos containing a “watermark” or frame, or placing a phone number or other contact information in any free text field on a vehicle’s posting.
