PLEASE READ THESE TERMS CAREFULLY AS THEY MAY HAVE CHANGED FROM THE LAST TIME YOU VISITED THIS PAGE.
Carity Inc. (“Carity”, “We”, “Our”, or “Us”) operates an online platform, via mobile application(s) and/or website(s), that allows users to sell vehicles (that online platform, the “Platform”; that user selling his/her vehicle, each a “Seller” and collectively, the “Sellers”) by connecting them to potential buyers (each an “Interested Buyer”, and collectively, the “Interested Buyers”). Each Interested Buyer makes an offer to purchase the vehicle by submitting a purchase price during the offer period (that offer, an “Offer”, and collectively, the “Offers”; that purchase price in the Offer, the “Purchase Price”; that offer period, the “Offer Period”) and if an Offer is accepted, the Platform facilitates the sale of the vehicle to the Interested Buyer (that Interested Buyer with the winning Offer, the “Buyer”).
By using Our Services (as defined below), you, as a user, agree to be bound by, and acknowledge that you have the authority to bind the Interested Buyer to, these terms of service, as amended from time to time (those terms of service, the “Terms”; you, and together with the Interested Buyer you represent, also referred to as “You”). Please review these Terms carefully as they contain important information regarding Your legal rights, remedies and obligations, including limitation and exclusion clauses, in connection with the use of Our Services. By accessing, browsing, visiting, accepting, Offering, or otherwise using the Platform, You agree to be unconditionally bound by and to follow these Terms. In the event of any update to these Terms, Your continued use of Our Services after any such updates constitutes Your acceptance of the revised Terms.
“Affiliates” means, with respect to an entity, any person or entity that directly or indirectly owns, is owned by, or is under common ownership with that entity. For purposes of this definition, ownership means control of more than a 50% interest in an entity.
Carity is making the Platform available for Your use. The act of Us making the Platform available to You and providing it for Your use shall be referred to as “Our Services”. Our Services are subject to these Terms:
- Scope. Interested Buyers are limited to registered motor vehicle dealers only. During registration, You will be required to enter Your registration number.
- Registration. In order to access and use certain parts, features and services made available through the Platform, You may be required to register and set up an account with Your email address, phone number and a password.
- Account Information. You agree to keep information in Your account current, accurate and complete. Carity relies on this information to facilitate the sale and purchase of vehicles on the Platform and any dated, false, inaccurate or incomplete information may result in delays. We reserve the right to suspend or delete Your account if Your account information is dated, false, inaccurate or incomplete.
- Vehicle Information. Carity uses commercially reasonable efforts to collect accurate and complete information about vehicles made available on the Platform, including its condition and any financial instruments attached thereto (collectively, the “Vehicle Information”).

If Your Offer is accepted by the Seller, We will connect You to the Seller to finalize the terms of the purchase (each such connection, a “Connection”, and collectively, the “Connections”). Carity is not involved in finalizing such terms and it is up to You and the Seller to enter into the necessary purchase and sale contract for the vehicle. For each Connection made, Carity will charge You a fee as indicated on the Platform (the “Fee”) and this Fee is due regardless of You and the Seller transacting.

We are not liable for any loss or damage arising from any activities on Your account, whether or not compromised, and whether or not You communicated any suspicious activities in accordance with this section.
3. Fees and Invoice
