Fees
Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted in U.S. Dollars. You are responsible for paying all applicable taxes and other costs you incur to bid, buy, procure a listing from us or access our servers. We may in our sole discretion add, delete or change some or all of our services at any time.

4.

Disclaimer
The Website is only a venue. Our site acts as the venue for buyers and sellers to solicit business. Although, we are involved in the actual transaction between buyers and sellers, however, we have no control over the quality, safety or legality of the items advertised, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of sellers to sell items or the ability of buyers to buy items. We cannot and do not control whether or not sellers will complete the sale of items they offer. We cannot and do not control whether or not buyers will complete the purchase of items they have bid on. In addition, note that there are risks of dealing with people acting under false pretense. Because we do not and cannot control the action of others, in the event that you have a dispute with one or more users, you release AgroConnect.Com Pte Ltd. (and our agents and employees and any third party partners and/or licensees of AgroConnect.Com Pte Ltd.) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.

If you choose to bid on restricted use pesticides, you are certifying that you have the legal right to purchase these products.

Correct documentation, product labels and labeling, packaging, and transportation information remains the responsibility of the seller.

Product and Services Quality
Products and Services offered through the Website are certified by sellers to be of quality as claimed by sellers and accordingly accepted by the buyer prior to finalizing the bid, new products in original, unopened packaging. Furthermore, Sellers posting items for sale warrant that the items are properly identified and free from defect or alteration, recognizing that potential buyers are relying upon information provided by Seller, and are offered for sale within any labeled shelf life of the product.

Correct documentation, product labels and labeling, packaging, and transportation information remains the responsibility of the seller.

Product and Services Registration
With respect to chemicals, only products registered in accordance with the respective legal acts governing their use and disposal in their respective jurisdiction, here in this agreement, the buyer and sellers jurisdiction Act may be offered for sale. In addition, products sold into a particular country must be registered for use in that country. It is the responsibility of the seller to insure that only properly registered products are sold to buyers. Since the seller may not know the destination country until the bid is completed, buyers are encouraged to carefully check for registration details of each product bid upon, and to ensure compliance with all regulations. If upon winning a bid (at which time the destination country is known), if a product sale is determined to be in violation, AgroConnect.Com Pte Ltd. may, but is not under a duty to, cancel the transaction. If the seller or buyer realizes the error they must notify AgroConnect.Com Pte Ltd. immediately at (65) 6753 9188 or e-mail Info@AgroConnect.Com. If the error is determined in advance of freight company dispatch, any funds collected will be returned and the next bidder will be contacted and offered the product. If the product is no longer wanted by the second place bidder, it could be re-listed for bid at the discretion of the seller. If the transaction is determined to be in violation of any regulations, and the freight service provider has picked up the product, all freight fees will be charged to the seller of the product. However, the information is not verified or substantiated by AgroConnect.Com Pte Ltd., may not be timely and we cannot be held responsible for any party's inaccuracies or omissions. Correct documentation, product labels and labeling, packaging, and transportation information remains the responsibility of the seller.

Any cost difference between the original sales price plus freight and the substituted sales product price plus freight will be the responsibility of the original seller who failed to meet its obligation. Seller will make such payments to AgroConnect.Com Pte Ltd. within five days of receipt of documentation of such cost difference from AgroConnect.Com Pte Ltd. and AgroConnect.Com Pte Ltd. will forward such payment to the alternate supplier.
