Terms and Conditions

Introduction

You may only use our website www.ukgunroom.com and services on the following terms which we strongly advise you to read carefully. By using our website you agree to be bound by these terms. We value your custom and have gone to considerable effort to create terms that are fair to you and us (Captive Broadcast Limited). If you disagree that they are fair, please feel free to make constructive recommendations to us by contacting terms@ukgunroom.com

We reserve the right to make reasonable changes to these terms as well as any changes caused by circumstances beyond our reasonable control at any time and except in cases of emergency we will give you one month’s notice of any changes by posting them on our website: you are advised to check the latest terms from time to time. Changes will apply to new users immediately.

General interpretation

Any headings in these terms are for ease of use and are not intended to form part of the terms nor effect their interpretation.

If you are more than one legal entity, each person or legal entity accepts joint and several liability under these terms.

Reference to something in the masculine form includes the feminine and neuter forms and vice versa and reference to the singular includes the plural and vice versa.

These terms are to be interpreted exclusively in accordance with English Law and any disputes regarding these terms will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of English courts of law. We make no representation that our website and its content comply with the laws of other countries.

You warrant to us that you are over 18 years of age.

Listing display

We will, subject to compliance with these terms, display any listing accepted by us on our website within 24 hours after you have submitted it to us unless we have decided to amend it or refuse it. You may cancel the order at any time before it appears on the website by contacting ads@ukgunroom.com The relevant time of cancellation will be the time the email is received in our account. By ordering a listing however, because the service starts within 24 hours, private sellers lose the extended right of cancellation within seven working days.

Once you have booked your listing, if you submit a listing which breaches any of these terms, you will still be liable for our listing fee even if the listing is not displayed as a result. Once you have paid your fee and we have accepted your listing, it may not be cancelled. We will remind you, by email, from time to time, to ask if you have sold your item. Please respond, to keep our website up-to-date.

We are committed to this website being the most effective way of selling guns online in the UK and in order to do that the site needs to be up-to-date and active. So, if you sell the item you are listing or decide to withdraw it from sale, please tell us immediately. We ask you to make sure you remove your listing as soon as you have sold or withdrawn it please.

If users report to us that you have sold or withdrawn an item, we will email you to ask if it is true.

Duration of listing

You pay us a fee according to the rates and for the period appearing on our website at the time of your placement of the order (click here for the rate card) and renewals are at the rate and period applicable at the time of renewal.

Our right to withdraw listings

We reserve the right to amend, reject or withdraw your listing at any time, with or without justification, even after we have approved your listing. If there is no reasonable legal justification (which includes but is not limited to reasonable suspicion of breach of these terms), we will credit you with a reasonable proportion of the listing fee payable (proportionate for the period it is withdrawn) but if it is withdrawn with reasonable justification, no such credit will be given. We also reserve the right to refuse you as a customer at the outset or at any time without notice or justification.

Our role

We are facilitators to allow people to make legal sales and purchases of guns. We are in no way responsible for the transactions effected between buyers and sellers and cannot become involved in any disputes between you. However, we are committed to having a respectable website that is effective for all users and we reserve the right to refuse listings to individuals or businesses that flagrantly breach our terms or abuse our users.

Service availability

Regardless of the above clause, whilst we agree to use reasonable endeavours to ensure a properly functioning, accessible Website, you will appreciate that it is technically impossible to guarantee access to our website 100% of the time or error-free functionality and we will not accept any responsibility for losses resulting from any temporary interruption of or other problems with service. If any errors come to your attention, please notify us immediately and we will endeavour to remedy the problem as soon as reasonably possible.

We need to maintain and improve the site from time to time to ensure you get the best service we can offer. We promise that except in emergencies, scheduled downtime will be at off-peaks times.

No Liability for Viruses, etc
