Welcome to GUNDOGS.Com, a service of GUNDOGS Inc. By using this website, you accept the terms of this Visitor Agreement. This is a legally binding agreement between you and GUNDOGS.Com; please read it carefully.
GUNDOGS.Com respects your privacy. Please take a moment to review our privacy statement. We invite you to bring to our attention any material on our site that you believe to be inaccurate. Please forward a copy of the material to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with an explanation of your objection. If you are an owner of intellectual property who believes your intellectual property has been improperly posted or distributed via this website, please notify us by sending email to email@example.com. The World Wide Web is an evolving medium. GUNDOGS.Com may change the terms of this agreement from time to time. By continuing to use this website following our posting of such changes, you agree to be bound by this agreement, as modified. GUNDOGS.Com may change, restrict access to, suspend, or discontinue this website, or any portion of this website, at any time. The material that appears on GUNDOGS.Com is for informational purposes only. Despite our efforts to provide useful and accurate information, errors may appear from time to time. Before purchasing a dog, shotgun or other goods or services you’ve read about on GUNDOGS.Com, you should confirm with the seller any information (including the price) that is important to your purchasing decision. GUNDOGS.Com is not responsible for, and does not guarantee the performance of, any such dog, shotgun or other goods or services.
Buying and Selling Dogs and Shotguns
GUNDOGS.Com is a listing and information service that brings together buyers and sellers. Information about a particular dog or shotgun is supplied by the seller, not by GUNDOGS.Com. The price and other terms of any sale remain subject to direct negotiation between the buyer and the seller. The prices listed by sellers on GUNDOGS.Com often exclude sales tax, shipping or FFL fees. Though we hope that all who come to GUNDOGS.Com will act honorably and treat each other fairly, we can’t verify the information sellers supply or guarantee the items they offer. Nor can we assure the seller of an item that the check he/she gets from the buyer isn’t going to bounce or be returned by the issuing bank. When using this website to find a buyer for your dog or shotgun or a dog or shotgun you can buy, we urge you to use the same common sense and good judgment you would use in selling a dog or shotgun through, or responding to, a classified ad in the newspaper.
Please read our fraud awareness tips before you buy or sell a dog or shotgun through a classified ad, whether on GUNDOGS.Com or in your local newspaper. There is no substitute for healthy skepticism and your own good judgment.
In connection with our efforts to combat Internet fraud, some listings may be screened before being posted publicly. This process may delay display of your listing. We may also screen some email messages sent to sellers about products or services listed on GUNDOGS.Com. If it appears that your email message has not reached the seller of the product or service you’re inquiring about, you might try inquiring by telephone if the seller has provided a telephone number. Some internet service providers like AOL are very restrictive on what email is considered spam or not. So it’s always a good idea to try to send a message to yourself via your advertisement and also make sure firstname.lastname@example.org is in your address book.
When you offer a dog or shotgun for sale through GUNDOGS.Com, you must be prepared to sell the item at the price at which, and the terms on which, you’ve listed it. You must have possession of the actual item listed and the ability to transfer ownership. To list a dog, shotgun or goods and services for sale on GUNDOGS.Com, sellers are required to provide certain identifying and contact information. The information must accurately identify the seller and the method of contact must permit buyers to communicate directly with the seller. You may not use our website to promote, without our prior written permission, any other website, product or service.
Responsibility for the information contained in each listing lies with each seller. You alone are responsible for material you post and for the content of all email messages you transmit through GUNDOGS.Com. Nothing will undermine a user’s confidence in the goods or services you’re looking to sell faster than inaccurate statements or misleading representations about the goods or services. And since any erosion of user confidence in you is likely to be accompanied by erosion of user confidence in us, we care deeply about making sure that the information you supply is accurate and that, in all respects, you treat other GUNDOGS.Com users fairly and honorably.
Though we can’t monitor every transaction that originates through a listing on GUNDOGS.Com, we may perform random quality assurance tests to confirm that those who offer goods or services for sale over GUNDOGS.Com are prepared to sell what they advertise at the prices at which, and the terms on which, they advertise them. If our tests reveal, or we otherwise learn, that a seller is engaging in “bait and switch” or other unfair or deceptive practices, GUNDOGS.Com reserves the right to deny that seller use of advertising service.
Links to Other Sites
For your convenience, we make available a variety of links to other websites that we don’t operate where you can obtain hunting related products and services. Although we encourage you to consult such websites, we cannot guarantee the prices, terms, quality, reliability or performance of the products or services provided by these websites. GUNDOGS.Com is not responsible for the products or services these websites provide. You release GUNDOGS.Com and its affiliates from any damages that you may incur, and agree not to assert any claims against them, arising from your purchase or use of third-party supplied products and services.
