1. Eligibility
WSTR Online point-of-sale services may only be used by persons who can enter into legally binding contracts under applicable law for the sale or purchase of goods or services. Consequently, we may require a valid credit card number, billing address, and credit card expiration date. We use this information to charge your credit card for fees due to WSTR associated with your purchases from WSTR and to verify your name, address, and other information. Your credit card password and credit card number is not disclosed in aggregate or otherwise to any unauthorized third party but may be disclosed for resolving billing disputes with your credit card company.

2. Fee and Payment Terms
Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted in U.S. dollars. The Fees and Payment Terms are subject to change in WSTR's sole discretion. Therefore, the Fees and Payment Terms applicable to any transaction are governed by the terms in effect at the date of the listing of an item for sale on WSTR Online. Shipping terms applicable to an item will be disclosed at the time of purchase. You are responsible for the payment of any and all applicable taxes, shipping and other costs you incur from using WSTR Online services.

3. Third-Party Transactions (Classifieds)
WSTR has no authority to act for other sellers or buyers. WSTR cannot and does not control any other person's behavior in any transaction that occurs through WSTR Online. For third-party transactions, WSTR does not control the nature of any listing posted on WSTR Online. Consequently, WSTR does not assume responsibility for the content, quality, safety or legality of the products advertised on WSTR Online, the truth or accuracy of the listings themselves, the ability of sellers to actually sell the items they have listed, or the ability of buyers to actually buy items they express interest in. Some people's information may be offensive, harmful, inaccurate, incomplete, false, deceptive or misleading. WSTR cannot and does not take responsibility for the quality or authenticity of the items offered by users of WSTR Online or its services. WSTR does not assume responsibility for the content or the context of the listings, including, without limitation, mistakes and typographical errors entered by a seller.

WSTR cannot guarantee that sellers will complete the sale of an item, or that buyers will go through with the purchase of item(s) listed. All risk of participating on WSTR Online or using its services is assumed by the individual buyers and sellers. This includes but is not limited to risks associated with conducting business with foreign nationals, underage persons, or persons acting under false pretense. You hereby release WSTR and its respective directors, employees and agents from any disputes, claims, demands, and/or damages (actual or consequential) of every kind, whether known or unknown, arising out of or relating to your use of WSTR Online and its services, including, without limitation, uncompleted or completed transactions and any claims or disputes between buyers and sellers.

Regarding third-party transactions, WSTR Online serves solely as a forum for buyers and sellers to come together and conduct personal transactions, classified-style, with other buyers or sellers. Except for WSTR products and services wherein WSTR is the actual seller of an item, WSTR is not involved in the transaction between the seller and buyer so payment terms are agreed upon between seller and buyer. You and the other party to the transaction are solely responsible for working out the terms of the sale and exchange of items and services.

4. General Rules and Policies
The policies in this section are expressly incorporated by reference into this Agreement, and you should review each carefully. The Site Terms of Use set forth terms, conditions and restrictions applicable to your access and use of WSTR Online, including copyright and trademark notices. The Prohibited Items List sets forth items that may not be posted on WSTR Online. As discussed below, the WSTR Online Privacy Policy governs the collection and use of user information on WSTR Online. These policies may be changed or modified without notice to you at any time in WSTR's sole discretion and are effective upon posting to WSTR Online. Therefore, you should review these policies regularly.

You agree not to interfere with the operations of WSTR Online. You agree not to impose any unreasonably or disproportionately large load on WSTR Online's systems or facilities. You agree not to put any material on WSTR Online that contains any viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time bombs, cancelbots or any other computer programming routines that may damage, interfere with, surreptitiously intercept or expropriate any system, data or personal information.

UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED, ALL GOODS OR SERVICES SOLD THROUGH WSTR ONLINE ARE SOLD "AS IS" AND WSTR DOES NOT PROVIDE AND HEREBY DISCLAIMS ANY WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, FOR ANY GOOD OR SERVICE LISTED ON WSTR ONLINE.

5. Obligations of Sellers (Classifieds)
By listing an item or service, you signify your intention and ability to sell that item or service. If you offer an item or service for sale, you are obligated to complete the transaction and acknowledge that not doing so may in some cases be legally actionable by a buyer. You may list any product or service that you have the right to sell. If WSTR does not think your item or service is appropriate for any reason, WSTR reserves the right to delete your listing altogether. You must accurately describe the item or service you are selling and list it in the most appropriate category. Sellers may not list items for sale that are listed on the Prohibited Items List. Sellers who submit unauthorized, illicit, infringing, illegal or otherwise prohibited items or services may be barred from use of WSTR Online at WSTR’s sole discretion. WSTR reserves the right to terminate any listing of any such nature immediately or upon notification by law enforcement or a legitimate trademark or copyright holder. The seller of such listings may be subject to suspension or termination from WSTR Online and its services. You must own the right, title, and interest in any and all items and services you seek to sell through WSTR Online. Such items or the sale and shipment of such items must not violate any applicable laws, statutes, ordinances or regulations, including export laws. You are responsible for complying with any and all such laws. Any items you seek to sell through WSTR Online and its services: (a) shall not infringe any third-party intellectual property right (including copyright, trademarks, patent, trade secrets or other proprietary rights); (b) shall not be counterfeit, stolen, or fraudulent; (c) shall not contain any obscene or pornographic materials, including, without limitation, all materials deemed harmful to or inappropriate for minors.

6. Obligations of Buyers (Classifieds)
If your offer for the purchase of a classified item or service has been accepted by the seller you are obligated to complete the transaction unless there are exceptional circumstances such as the terms of sale have changed, you are unable to verify the identity of the seller, or the seller materially changes the description of the item or service after you make your offer. You understand that not completing an otherwise valid agreement may in some cases be legally actionable by the seller. You may not commence purchases under a false name or with an invalid credit card, check, or funds (such fraudulent conduct is a violation of federal and state laws). Fraudulent buyers may be reported to relevant state and federal law enforcement agencies and WSTR will cooperate to ensure that violators are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

7. Authentication and Security
Authenticating persons is difficult over the Internet. Consequently, WSTR cannot and does not positively verify the identity of any user involved in third-party transactions. WSTR strongly urges you to be aware of the risks in dealing with people whom you do not know and that WSTR has no control over these risks. WSTR attempts to assist by offering a safeguard in requiring sellers to be current WSTR membership holders, but this is not foolproof and there are no assurances this system will be accurate or that it cannot be manipulated. In general you should always act with care and communicate with the person on the other side of the transaction to help you evaluate that person, but also to do so thoughtfully and carefully so as not to make yourself unduly vulnerable to someone you do not know.

You may not disclose your WSTR Online password to any other party and are solely responsible for any use of or action taken under your account on WSTR Online. Your password may be used only to access and use WSTR Online services. If your password is compromised or otherwise disclosed, you must change your password in order to minimize your risk of loss.

Further, you are solely responsible for (a) maintaining the security of your personal information, including, without limitation, account and login information, passwords, and financial information; (b) all telephone and toll charges which may apply to your account depending on your location; and (c) any other charges resulting from the use of your WSTR Online account.

8. Enforcement
WSTR may investigate any reported violation of this Agreement, its policies or guidelines, or any complaints and take any action that it deems appropriate and reasonable under the circumstance to protect its systems, facilities, members, and/or third parties. WSTR’s actions may include, but are not limited to, issuing warnings, suspension or termination of services, and/or removal of or disabling access to content hosted on WSTR systems. WSTR reserves the right and has absolute discretion to remove or disable access, screen or edit any content that violates these provisions or is otherwise objectionable. WSTR also reserves the right to report any activity that it suspects violates any law or regulation to appropriate law enforcement officials.

  1. Membership registration and renewal
  2. Event registration
  3. Online purchases
  4. Publication subscription registration.
We also track the network address of the clients from which people visit us and analyze this data for trends and statistics, but the individual users remain anonymous.

Personal information gathered at WSTR, Inc. web sites may be shared with third parties, such as WSTR partners, or for specific prize awards.
USE OF COOKIES
A Cookie is a tiny piece of text that a Web site desires to transfer to an individual's hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Your browser can be set to notify you when you are sent a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it. If your browser does agree to accept the cookie, it is added to your hard drive as a small file; if your browser declines the cookie, WSTR Online will try to send you one with every hit until you accept it. This means every page and item on that page you request from WSTR Online will come with a cookie request unless you already have one.

A cookie's purpose is to let us know that you are a returning visitor to WSTR Online and restore your settings from your privious visit. This cookie, by itself, doesn't tell us your e-mail address or who you are. If you want to give us that information later via sign-in or online purchase, that's your choice. There are several immediate advantages on WSTR Online that you will see through the use of cookies: personalized events, offers, and site access are easier to use with the cookie technology. A cookie also tells us what pages are being used and which ones aren't, helping us make improvements to WSTR Online to better meet your needs and cut down on pages that don't get used.

We want to be sure you understand that accepting a cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any personal information about you. We know that a lot of people have concerns about cookies, but in talking with many of our users we feel that the benefit we both gain from their proper use is worthwhile. We value the relationships we have with our customers and future customers, so we respect these concerns.

BROWSER SECURITY

Providing you with a secure online experience is a top priority of WSTR. We recognize that your privacy and security are of the utmost importance, and we have devoted a great deal of effort to ensure that your personal information is safeguarded.

If you use a security-enabled browser (such as Microsoft Internet Explorer version 2.1 or greater, or Netscape Navigator version 2.0 or greater) paying attention to two browser features will decrease the chances for the unintended or fraudulent use of your personal information:

1. Browser security settings.
Your browser security preference settings are your first line of defense to stopping the theft or unwanted viewing of confidential, personal information. The most popular browsers offer you the ability to receive an alert or notification if any of the following happen or are about to occur:

  • changing between secure and insecure transmission modes
  • receiving an invalid site identification for the site to which you are about to transmit
  • sending a transmission over an "open" or unsecured connection

Check the settings of your browser security features to see all the checks that are possible and those that are currently in place.

2. Browser security signals.
The presence of security measures surrounding the entry of data on a web page is identified in several ways for you on your browser:
  • the URL identifying the page will always begin with "https://" versus the normal "http://".
  • a security symbol will appear to indicate operation in a mode that supports secure transmissions: either a "closed lock" icon is present in the bottom right-hand corner of your Microsoft Internet Explorer browser screen, or an "unbroken key" icon appears in the lower left-hand corner of the Netscape Navigator browser screen

If not using a browser with these standard security features, or if you are still uncomfortable with submitting your personal information via the Internet for any reason, please feel free to Contact Us over the phone or via fax to complete your order.

ENCRYPTION PROTECTION

Encryption is a process by which software is used to scramble sensitive information while it is in transit to and from WSTR Online. Providing encrypted information online has proven overall to be as safe as providing it over the phone. WSTR Online currently uses the industry-standard SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption protocol, but we continue to keep up with current Internet technologies in order to provide the best security for our customers.

SSL encryption is based on a key that has two different parts: the public part and the private part. The public part of WSTR Online's security key is sent to your browser and is used to encrypt your sensitive information before it is sent across the Internet to us. That means, if at any point during the transmission your information is intercepted, it is scrambled and extremely difficult to decrypt. Once your encrypted information arrives, our servers use the private part of WSTR Online's security key to decode your browser transmission.

WSTR Online encrypts your credit card information. All credit cards used at WSTR Online are submitted online. Once submitted, we store credit card information on a secured database. After you key it in, your card information is stored into this database and is only accessed to charge your account or verify your identity; this information is stored in no other place.
