Please read these Terms and Conditions ("Terms", "Terms and Conditions") carefully before using the www.recapturit.com website and the ReCapturit® mobile application (together, or individually, the "Service") operated by Recaptured Building Materials Marketplace LLC, D/B/A ReCapturit ("us", "we", or "our").
Your access to and use of the Service is conditioned upon your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. These Terms apply to all visitors, users and others who wish to access or use the Service. On the ReCapturit marketplace, a "Seller” is a subscribed entity, an individual or business or organization. Creating a Seller account on ReCapturit will open a Seller "Store” where multiple products can be sold. On the ReCapturit marketplace, a "Buyer” is a visitor, guest, client, customer or shopper on the website, whether he/she purchases anything or not.
By accessing or using the Service you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you disagree with any part of the terms then you do not have permission to access the Service.
By creating an Account on the Service, you agree to subscribe to newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information we may send. However, you may opt out of receiving any, or all, of these communications from us by following the unsubscribe link or instructions provided in any email we send.
If you wish to purchase any product or service made available through the Service ("Purchase"), you may be asked to supply certain information relevant to your Purchase including, without limitation, your credit card number, the expiration date of your credit card, your billing address, CVV or CVC code, and your shipping information.
You represent and warrant that: (i) you have the legal right to use any credit card(s) or other payment method(s) in connection with any Purchase; and that (ii) the information you supply to us is true, correct and complete.
We reserve the right to refuse or cancel your order at any time for reasons including but not limited to: product or service availability, errors in the description or price of the product or service, error in your order or other reasons. This provision extends to Sellers on the Service.
We reserve the right to refuse or cancel your order if fraud or an unauthorized or illegal transaction is suspected. This provision extends to Buyers and Sellers on the Service. If Buyer fraud has occurred the Service will help the Seller obtain information about the case and any potential solution. The sole remedy for the Seller will be the remedy offered by the credit card company to the Service, at the time offered. Under no circumstances will the Service be liable for fraud that may occur on the Service. Sellers and Buyers accept this risk unconditionally.
Availability, Errors and Inaccuracies
We are constantly updating product and service offerings on the Service. We may experience delays in updating information on the Service and in our advertising on other websites. The information found on the Service may contain errors or inaccuracies and may not be complete or current. Products or services may be mispriced, described inaccurately, or unavailable on the Service and we cannot guarantee the accuracy or completeness of any information found on the Service.
We therefore reserve the right to change or update information and to correct errors, inaccuracies, or omissions at any time without prior notice.
Contests, Sweepstakes and Promotions
Some parts of the Service are billed on a subscription basis ("Subscription(s)"). You will be billed in advance on a recurring and periodic basis ("Billing Cycle"). Billing cycles are set either on a monthly or annual basis, depending on the type of subscription plan you select when purchasing a Subscription. Subscription levels are outlined in the Seller account setup process.
At the end of each Billing Cycle, your Subscription will automatically renew under the exact same conditions unless you cancel it or we cancel it. You may cancel your Subscription renewal either through your online account management page or by contacting our customer support team.
A valid payment method, by credit card or other approved method, is required to process the payment for your Subscription. You shall provide us with accurate and complete billing information including your full name, address, state, zip code, telephone number, and a valid payment method information. By submitting such payment information, you automatically authorize us to charge all Subscription fees incurred through your account to any such payment instruments.
Should automatic billing fail to occur for any reason, we will issue an electronic invoice indicating that you must proceed manually, within a certain deadline date, with the full payment corresponding to the billing period as indicated on the invoice.
We may, at our sole discretion, offer a Subscription with a free trial for a limited period of time ("Free Trial").
You may be required to enter your billing information in order to sign up for the Free Trial.
If you do enter your billing information when signing up for the Free Trial, you will not be charged by us until the Free Trial has expired. On the last day of the Free Trial period, unless you cancelled your Subscription, you will be automatically charged the applicable Subscription fees for the type of Subscription you have selected.
At any time and without notice, we reserve the right to modify the terms and conditions of the Free Trial offer or cancel such Free Trial offer.
We may hire "Third Party” businesses or entities to provide products and or perform services. Seller will be required to establish accounts with Third Parties directly to conduct business on the Service (i.e. payment processing, shipping application, etc.). Refer to other sections of this document for relevant Third Party information. You must also read any Third Party Terms and Conditions that may be applicable.
Fees and Modifications
A "Fee” is a charge incurred for any service. Services include but are not limited to Subscription, Commission, Advertising, Transaction, Shipping, and certain fees incurred by use of Third Party services.
Fees: Fees are non-refundable unless specified in these Terms and Conditions or when required by law.
Commissions: Commissions are non-refundable unless specified in these Terms and Conditions or when required by law.
Items purchased will not be released for shipment until payment in full has been received.
We, in our sole discretion and at any time, may modify any Fees for the Subscriptions, Commissions or other Services. Any Subscription fee change will become effective at the end of the then-current Billing Cycle.
We will provide you with a reasonable prior notice of any change in Fees to give you an opportunity to terminate your Services before such change becomes effective.
Your continued use of the Service after the Subscription fee change comes into effect constitutes your agreement to pay the modified Subscription fee amount.
You are responsible for all of your expenses in connection with your use of the Service. You authorize us and our Third Parties to access credit reports about you and verify your information. All payments to you will be remitted to your bank account through a banking network or by other means specified by us. Payment to Sellers will be processed weekly or on another payment schedule as determined by the Service. Payment to Third Parties will be processed on a payment schedule to be determined by separate agreements.
In any event where we decide that your actions may result in claims, returns, chargebacks, disputes, violations of our terms or policies, or other risks to us or Third Parties, then we may in our sole discretion withhold any payments to you for as long as we determine any related risks to us or Third Parties persist.
Refunds, Returns or Exchanges
In general, all sales are final on the Service except where required by law. This applies to all Seller Stores on the Service, unless stated specifically by a Seller in its own policies, as stated in that section of any Seller Store on the Services. Please read the individual policies in each Seller Store before transacting a purchase.
We do not own, store nor ship any products sold via the Service marketplace. All Seller Stores on the Service marketplace are responsible for setting, having, and posting a "Returns, Refunds and Exchanges Policy.” Please read those policies prior to purchasing anything from a Seller Store on the Services marketplace.
We set guidelines and encourage our Sellers to make sure that item descriptions and photographs accurately describe items so that our Buyers know what they’re getting before they place their order. The items offered are sold as-is, where-is. They’re often one of a kind, with their own unique set of beauty marks acquired from years of use.
Individual Sellers will determine if they will accept returns of product/s purchased and refund any other associated costs, like shipping, fees, commissions, or taxes. Sellers are not required to accept a return or exchange unless stated in their store policies. If the Seller is willing to accept the return Buyer and the Seller must settle these details through direct Buyer-Seller messaging. In the event that a Seller opts to provide a refund to a Buyer, the Seller is solely responsible to provide that refund through its own means, not through the original form of payment. Seller may choose to refund Fees, Commissions, Shipping, Taxes and/or other associated fees at Seller’s sole expense. Seller is liable for all charges disputed by the Buyer with their credit card company. Service may charge Seller for any transaction that is disputed by the Buyer, and Service will charge Seller all applicable costs until the dispute is resolved. Seller is solely responsible to request and obtain any tax adjustments from any tax authorities.
In the unlikely event that the item you received did not match the online description or photographs depicting the item, or was the wrong item entirely, and, you attempted to resolve the issue with the Seller, but that did not result in your satisfaction, you may reach out directly to us and we will work with you and the Seller Store on the Service to resolve the issue.
Ultimately, we want you to be pleased with your purchase and experience.
Our Service allows you to post, link, store, share and otherwise make available certain information, text, graphics, videos, or other material ("Content"). Seller may re-direct one and only one exclusive business website domain (URL) to their own ReCapturit Seller Store. You are responsible for the Content that you post on or through the Service, including its legality, reliability, and appropriateness.
By posting Content on or through the Service, You represent and warrant that: (i) the Content is yours (you own it) and/or you have the right to use it and the right to grant us the rights and license as provided in these Terms, and (ii) that the posting of your Content on or through the Service does not violate the privacy rights, publicity rights, copyrights, contract rights or any other rights of any person or entity. We reserve the right to use any images posted on our site for any use. We reserve the right to terminate the account of anyone found to be infringing any copyright.
You retain any and all of your rights to any Content you submit, post or display on or through the Service and you are responsible for protecting those rights. We take no responsibility and assume no liability for Content you or any third party posts on or through the Service. However, by posting Content using the Service you grant us the perpetual, royalty-free, world wide right and license to use, modify, publicly perform, publicly display, reproduce, and distribute such Content on and through the Service or any other medium reasonably related to the Service. You agree that this license includes the right for us to make your Content available to other users of the Service, who may also use your Content subject to these Terms.
We have the right but not the obligation to monitor and edit all Content provided by users.
In addition, Content found on or through this Service is the property of us or is used with permission. You may not distribute, modify, transmit, reuse, download, repost, copy, or use said Content, whether in whole or in part, for commercial purposes or for personal gain, without express advance written permission from us.
If you are a Seller, you assume full responsibility for accuracy of product Content listing. If you are a Buyer, you are responsible for conducting your own due diligence and you assume full responsibility for verification that a product is going to be acceptable prior to purchase. You acknowledge that all Products sold through our Service are used, recycled, discontinued, and/or repurposed and sold As-Is, Where-Is. If you are a Buyer, you acknowledge that Products purchased do not necessarily meet original manufacturer specifications, dimensions, color, finish and other design criteria. Condition of Products sold will be variable and may not be visible in the photographs or fully described in the content of the product listing. You assume the full risk regarding the condition of the Products and use of these Products on a specific project or for any use.
Products or materials that are manufactured or re-manufactured from used or salvaged building products or building materials may be sold on the Service but must be designated as such with correct descriptive categorization and written description to identify that the item(s) is not made of entirely new or virgin materials.
If you are a Seller and you misrepresent the origin of an item anywhere in the publicly-visible wording of the item, particularly in the "Story of Origin" - intentionally or otherwise - this is grounds for permanent removal from the marketplace. If you are a Seller and were led to believe that the item(s) were from a particular origin, and that information was discovered to be false, then you have one opportunity to correct that error: by offering a complete refund to the Buyer(s) (including freight out and back) for any such item(s) already sold; plus, correcting the "Story of Origin" information on any and all affected items that are listed on your Seller's store (or anywhere in the Service marketplace), and issuing a statement on any affected item stating that it had been previously misrepresented in that item's "Story of Origin" and that since the item's true origin can no longer be stated knowingly and truthfully, the value of the item may change as a result (generally leading to a devaluation of the price of the item). Disputes surrounding origins of items are not our responsibility and we may not be held liable for any perceived diminishment of value or for items being returned, or for any refund of payment made for incorrectly identified items. This is the responsibility of you as the Seller.
If you are the Buyer, you have the option to hire an independent local inspector prior to purchase to perform due diligence on the Product/s and verify the condition at your own expense and risk.

This Code of Conduct policy requires that all parties using the Services act fairly and honestly while conducting business on the Service to ensure a safe buying and selling experience. All Sellers must:

•Not attempt to damage or abuse other Sellers, their listings or ratings;
•Not attempt to influence customers’ ratings, feedback, and reviews;

•If a Buyer has opted into tax exempt status, they may not make personal purchases on that account to evade payment of taxes. Buyers may have business and personal accounts as needed for this reason.
Violating the Code of Conduct or any other of our policies may result in actions against your account, such as cancellation of listings, suspension or forfeiture of payments, and removal of selling privileges. More details about these policies are below.
You must provide accurate information to us and our customers, and update the information if it changes. False account information is prohibited. For example, this means that you must use a business name that accurately identifies your business and list your products in the correct category.
You must act fairly and lawfully and may not misuse any service provided by us. Examples of unfair activities include:
•Providing misleading or inappropriate information to us or our customers, such as by creating multiple detail pages for the same product or posting offensive product images;

•Attempting to increase the price of a product after an order is confirmed;
•Artificially inflating web traffic (using bots or paying for clicks, for example);
•Attempting to damage another Seller, their listings or ratings; or

You may not use customer information to contact customers (except through Buyer-Seller Messaging) or share it with any third-party.
Circumventing the Sales Process
You may not attempt to circumvent the Service’s sales process or divert our customers to another website, business, organization or individual. This means that you may not provide links or messages that prompt users to visit any external website or complete a transaction elsewhere.
