You’re bound to the Ethical Guidelines, too: they’re part of the Agreement, and by using the Service you agree that you have read them, that you understand them, and that you will comply with them.
If you see any capitalized terms that aren’t defined in these Ethical Guidelines, they’ll have the meaning we give them elsewhere in the Agreement.
If a Merchant or Store does not comply with these Ethical Guidelines, access to the Store may be removed without notice for both the Merchant and any Visitors or Users, and the Merchant may be refused further access to the Service.
Counterfeit products may not be sold in Stores. This includes the sale of used, second-hand counterfeit products.
Firearms, live ammunition, arrows, throwing stars, silencers, ammunition magazines/clips, tear gas, explosive material, knives (including but not limited to butterfly, switchblade, concealed/disguised, fighting or otherwise offensive), or other weapons intended to cause bodily harm are not permitted on Tictail. Non-functioning replicas, toys, antiques or decorations resembling weapons may be sold. Knives and other sharpened equipment primarily intended for use in cooking, crafts/construction or hunting may sold.
Goods or materials that promote, encourage, or incite violent acts, intolerance or hatred may not be sold or promoted on Tictail. This includes products or goods that defame or slander any person or groups of people based on race, ethnicity, religion, sex, or other factors.
Used or second hand products (“Used Products”) may be sold in Stores.
Used Products must be clearly and conspicuously designated as such in the product description. Suitable descriptions such as “Second Hand”, “Used”, “Refurbished”, and “Vintage” may be used.
