Terms and Conditions

This website is for second hand triathlon and adventure sporting gear only. It is not to be used by shops selling new equipment.

1. Welcome to the Tritrader User Agreement.
Welcome to Tritrader. This site is an online medium for advertising items related to the sport of triathlon, adventure racing and multi-sports. Potential buyers can browse the listings on our site and then purchase items chosen by contacting sellers and negotiating the sale privately. This Agreement describes the terms and conditions governing your use of Tritrader’s services, and is effective upon your use of the website. Each time you use our services you confirm that you agree to be bound by the agreement, amendments to the agreement and any policies relevant to your use of the site. If you do not agree with these changes (or any of our Policies), you must terminate your membership of Tritrader and cease accessing the website. If you continue to be a member of our Site you will be considered by us to have accepted the varied terms as part of the Agreement.
2. Terms of Use Service:
Tritrader merely acts as an online venue to allow members to offer, sell and buy items related to the sport of Triathlon, adventure racing and multi-sports. You acknowledge and agree that Tritrader is not involved in the actual transaction between buyer and seller. As a result, Tritrader has no control over and, to the extent permitted by law, has no liability(1) or warranty(1) obligations in relation to:
(a) the quality, safety or legality of the items posted,
(b) any form of loss or damage; whether it be actual, direct, indirect and consequential,
(c) the truth or accuracy of listings or
(d) the ability of members to buy or sell the items posted.
When you enter into a transaction you create a legally binding contract with another member. You are responsible for ensuring that you comply with your obligations to that other member. If you do not, you may become liable to him or her. If another member breaches any obligation to you, you alone – not Tritrader - are responsible for enforcing any rights that you may have. In addition, Tritrader does not accept any liability regarding your involvement in any mediation, arbitration, Tribunal hearings, court proceedings or other proceedings (of whatever nature) with a buyer or a seller arising out of or connected with your transaction. Tritrader may plead this Agreement in bar to any claim, action, proceeding or suit brought by you, against Tritrader for any matter arising out of any Tritrader transaction or otherwise in respect of this Agreement.

8. Purchasing
There is no bidding process on Tritrader. Items listed are sold at the price offered (or agreed directly between buyer and seller).

Completed transactions are notified between the sellers and buyers directly and Tritrader takes no responsibility for notifying either party.. Sellers and buyers then contact each other directly to organise payment and delivery. The seller is then required to delete the advertisement, otherwise it will automatically be deleted or made inactive after 1 month.
We recommend that you read the full listing for the item (including the seller's instructions and accepted payment and delivery options) and investigate for yourself the suitability, quality and condition of any items.
9. Manufactuerers Liability
We take no responsibility for the content, fulfilment or enforcement of any manufacturer’s warranty which may be provided with the sale of any item.
