AutoTrader Classics Visitor Agreement

Visitor Agreement

Effective Date: April 1, 2013


Welcome to AutoTrader Classics, a service of AutoTrader.com, Inc. In this Visitor Agreement, the terms "we," "us," and "our" refer to AutoTrader Classics and the terms "you" and "your" refer to you as a user of this website. 


1. General Provisions

By using this website, you accept the terms of this Visitor Agreement. This is a legally binding agreement between you and AutoTrader Classics; please read it carefully. When using this website, you may be subject to other posted guidelines or rules applicable to certain services available on the website. All such guidelines and rules, and all policies and guidelines that are referenced herein, are part of this Visitor Agreement. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any features or services added to this website are also subject to this Visitor Agreement. Accessing this website in any manner, even through automated means, constitutes your use of the website and your agreement to be bound by this Visitor Agreement and by our Privacy Statement.

We respect your privacy. Please take a moment to review our Privacy Statement.

AutoTrader Classics may change the terms of this Visitor Agreement from time to time and will revise the effective date when it does so. Your continued use of this website after the posted effective date constitutes your agreement to be bound by this Visitor Agreement as modified, provided, however, that modifications do not apply to any dispute arising prior to their effective date. AutoTrader Classics may change, restrict access to, suspend, or discontinue this website, or any portion of this website, at any time.

The material that appears on the AutoTrader Classics website is for informational purposes only. It may include errors or omissions, and it may include material collected from and provided by third parties that we have not verified or reviewed. We make no guarantees regarding the accuracy or reliability of any of the material on this website, and you should not rely on it without independent verification. We invite you to bring to our attention any material on our website that you believe to be inaccurate. Please forward a copy of the material to our Operations Manager, along with an explanation of your objection.


2. Buying and Selling Vehicles

AutoTrader Classics is a vehicle listing and information service that brings together buyers and sellers. Information about a particular vehicle is supplied by the seller, not by AutoTrader Classics. The price and other terms of any sale remain subject to direct negotiation between the buyer and the seller. The prices listed by sellers on AutoTrader Classics often exclude sales tax, finance charges, title, license, regulatory, dealer documentary, emission testing and compliance fees, any or all of which may be added to the listed price to arrive at the final sale price of a particular vehicle. Though we hope that all who come to AutoTrader Classics will act honorably and treat each other fairly, we cannot verify the information that sellers supply or guarantee the vehicles they offer. Nor can we assure the seller of a vehicle that payment he or she receives from the buyer is legitimate. When using this website to find a buyer for your vehicle or a vehicle to purchase, we urge you to use the same common sense and good judgment you would use in selling a vehicle through, or responding to, a classified ad in the newspaper.

Please read our fraud awareness tips before you buy or sell a vehicle through our website, whether on AutoTrader Classics or anywhere else. There is no substitute for healthy skepticism and your own good judgment.

In connection with our efforts to combat Internet fraud, some listings may be screened before being posted publicly. This process may delay the publication of your listing. We may also screen some email messages sent through the website to sellers about vehicles listed on AutoTrader Classics. If it appears that your email message has not reached the seller of the vehicle you are inquiring about, you might try inquiring by telephone if the seller has provided a telephone number.

By using our website to sell your vehicle as a private seller, you represent that you are at least 18 years of age, that you are not a motor vehicle dealer, that you are not listing a vehicle for sale in your capacity as an owner, employee or representative of a dealer, and that neither you, nor anyone acting on your behalf will list more than five vehicles for sale simultaneously. A private seller who wishes to list more than five vehicles simultaneously, and any commercial dealer wishing to list any vehicle, must make arrangements with us before doing so. Please visit www.classicsdrivesresults.com for information.

In order for you to offer a vehicle for sale as a private seller through AutoTrader Classics, you must agree to the Terms of Sale for the Sell Your Car service, which will be presented to you at the time you purchase your ad. The Terms of Sale require, among other things, that you be prepared to sell that vehicle at the price at which, and the terms on which, you have listed it. You must have possession of the actual vehicle listed and the ability to transfer title. To list a vehicle for sale on AutoTrader Classics, sellers are required to provide certain identifying and contact information. The information must accurately identify the seller and the method of contact must permit buyers to communicate directly with the seller. You may not charge any potential buyer for information about any vehicle listed for sale on AutoTrader Classics, nor may you use our website to promote, without our prior written permission, any other website, product or service.

AutoTrader Classics offers a variety of ad packages to private sellers, with combinations of features that may vary. For information about the ad packages available to private sellers, click the "Sell Your Car" tab or button on our website. For information on our ad packages available to dealers (and private sellers wishing to list five or more vehicles), please visit www.classicsdrivesresults.com.

When you list a vehicle for sale through our website, we may obtain additional distribution for your listing through our relationships with other websites. We may also promote your listing on or through third-party websites or services. Neither AutoTrader Classics nor any website through which we distribute or promote your listing will charge you any additional fee for this additional exposure. It is simply added value from AutoTrader Classics. Further, none of our distribution or promotional partners will directly contact you regarding your advertising unless you expressly grant them the right to do so. If you ever receive a call or email from a third party company offering add-on advertising services, they have likely misused AutoTrader Classics website and violated our Visitor Agreement to exploit your listing information. Additionally, they may be in violation of federal telemarketing law and other law, and they may not even be a legitimate company. If they claim that they are an AutoTrader Classics partner, that is false advertising.

Responsibility for the information contained in each listing lies with each seller. You alone are responsible for material you post, including listing information and photos of your vehicle, and for the content of all email messages you transmit through AutoTrader Classics. Nothing will undermine a user's confidence in the vehicle you are looking to sell faster than inaccurate statements or misleading representations about the vehicle. And since any erosion of user confidence in you is likely to be accompanied by erosion of user confidence in us, we care deeply about making sure that the information you supply is accurate and that, in all respects, you treat other AutoTrader Classics users fairly and honorably.

Though we cannot monitor every transaction that originates through a listing on AutoTrader Classics, we may perform quality assurance tests to confirm that those who offer vehicles for sale over AutoTrader Classics are prepared to sell those vehicles at the prices and on the terms offered. By using our website, you agree to cooperate in these quality assurance tests. If our tests reveal, or we otherwise learn, that a seller may be violating the terms of our Visitor Agreement, AutoTrader Classics reserves the right to deny that seller use of our website.

Listings are not to be used to advertise more than one vehicle, regardless of a listing's duration. For this reason, you cannot edit your vehicle's year, make, model or VIN once you have purchased a listing. Always double-check this information before purchasing a listing. Listing fees are generally not refundable, so if you enter incorrect information in the year, make, model or VIN fields, you will have to delete the listing and purchase a new one to create an accurate listing. By using AutoTrader Classics to sell your vehicle, you agree to pay the price of the package you select and the prices of any advertising upgrades, regardless of whether your vehicle sells as a result of the listing. You also agree to pay any applicable taxes relating to your use of the Sell Your Car service.


3. Third-Party Services

For your convenience, we make available a variety of links to other websites that we do not operate where you can obtain automotive related products and services, including insurance, warranties, financing and inspection services. Although we encourage you to consult such websites, we are not responsible for the prices, terms, quality, reliability or performance of the products or services provided by these vendors. Your correspondence or business dealings with, or participation in promotions of, vendors or other third parties found on or through the website, including payment and delivery of related goods or services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such dealings, are solely between you and such third party. We are not responsible or liable for any loss or damage incurred as the result of such dealings or the presence of such third parties on our website.

You may choose to purchase an inspection through such a third-party website for a vehicle that you are interested in buying. Remember that an inspection is not a warranty, however. Although inspections can be of significant value in the purchase of a pre-owned vehicle, an inspection is not a guarantee that the inspected vehicle is free from defects or that the inspectors have identified all existing defects. Before you purchase inspection services, you should confirm with the inspector the location at which the inspection will be conducted, the scope and price of the inspection, and any other information you consider important to your decision. You are responsible for coordinating and arranging for the inspection. You release AutoTrader Classics, AutoTrader.com, Inc., and their affiliates from any damages that you may incur, and agree not to assert any claims against any of them, arising from your purchase or use of third-party supplied products and services.

For your convenience, we make available links to websites operated by dealers that list their vehicles on our website. Although we or our affiliates may power some of these dealer websites, we are not responsible for any of the content that appears on these websites, including, without limitation, promotional contests and sweepstakes offers. We do not co-sponsor, operate, endorse or guarantee any advertiser sweepstakes or contest offer that may be promoted from time to time on our website, or that may be accessible through a link from our website, and you release AutoTrader Classics, AutoTrader.com, Inc., and all of our affiliates from any damages that you may incur, and agree not to assert any claims against any of them, arising from your entry, participation or acceptance of any prize in any such sweepstakes or contest offer.

We may allow you to access third-party tools on our site for sharing videos, photos and other content. Your use of any such tools is subject to the terms of this Visitor Agreement and the policies of the applicable third-party providers of such tools.
