2. About SecondSurf
SecondSurf does not have possession of anything listed, rented or sold through SecondSurf, (apart from any items which may be sold by the Second Surf account - username ‘secondsurf’) and is not involved in the actual transaction between buyers and sellers.
The contract for the sale or rental is directly between buyer and seller.
SecondSurf attempts to review all listings for suitability but this may not have happened before a sale is agreed.
While we may help facilitate the resolution of disputes, SecondSurf has no control over, and does not guarantee the existence, quality, safety or legality of, items advertised; the accuracy of users' content, the ability of sellers to sell or rent items; the ability of buyers or renters to pay for items; or that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction or return an item.
Sellers must have a valid PayPal payment method on file with SecondSurf.
