8. Turn Automotive’ Role:

Turn Automotive provides a business-to-business online marketplace and related Services. We do not take title to the vehicles uploaded and displayed on the marketplace or by use of the Services. Turn Automotive is neither a buyer nor a seller of the vehicles on the marketplace and makes no representations or guarantees regarding any vehicle sold or offered for sale. Turn Automotive is not a party to the vehicle sale contract, but is a third-party beneficiary of the contract, entitled to the parties’ performance and to seek legal remedies for the parties’ breach. You agree that any legal claims arising out of a Transaction will be between you and the other party (either Buyer or Seller) in the Transaction and not against Turn Automotive or any Turn Automotive partner. For purposes of this Agreement, a Transaction is defined as Your purchase or sale of a vehicle through the Services as the Buyer or Seller.
Turn Automotive reserves the right at its sole discretion to end an active listing, limit or restrict the number of vehicles a Seller may list for sale at any given time, retract an offer, or unwind a Transaction if it deems that it is in violation of the Terms or for fraudulent behavior or major deception. Major deception means an act, representation or omission that materially affects the value of a vehicle and would be regarded as misleading, unprofessional or unethical. In the event of major deception, the Seller will be responsible for reclaiming their vehicle from its current location as well as all costs associated therewith, regardless of location of the vehicle. The Seller will also repay in full all funds it received for the sale of the vehicle. Turn Automotive further reserves the right to assess and charge a $500 fee for any transaction that is unwound because of a violation of the Terms or for fraudulent behavior or major deception by the Buyer or Seller. Turn Automotive has the right to ACH debit Buyer’s or Seller’s account for any funds that were paid in the event of an unwind for major deception. Every Seller shall disclose all material facts relating to the history and condition of each vehicle listed for sale when submitting the condition report.
For qualifying transactions, Turn Automotive shall provide a limited warranty free of charge subject to the terms and conditions contained therein (the “Limited Warranty”). The Limited Warranty is located at www.turnautomotive.com/limitedwarranty and shall govern any claims arising under qualifying transactions, as defined therein. Turn Automotive reserves the right at its sole discretion to switch You to as-is sales that are not eligible to receive the Limited Warranty at any time for any reason.

12. Payment Terms:

Any vehicle that is deemed to be “Won” on the Turn Automotive platform constitutes a transaction that is binding on both the Buyer and Seller. Payments are due at the time of sale upon checkout. Payment shall be made by the Buyer in U.S. Dollars via ACH electronic funds transfer or by another financing arrangement acceptable to Turn Automotive (each a “Payment Method”). Buyer agrees that, regardless of payment method, the transaction is a fully consummated cash transaction for present consideration. Turn Automotive reserves the right to specify the type of Payment Method it will accept from the Buyer in our sole and absolute discretion.
 
If Buyer payment is made via ACH electronic funds transfer, Turn Automotive will initiate an ACH debit to the Buyer bank account for such amounts owed at the time of sale upon checkout.
 
If Buyer fails to complete the “check out” process within twenty-four (24) hours of the time of purchase Turn Automotive is authorized to automatically select ACH payment method for payment by Buyer and will initiate an ACH debit to the Buyer bank account for such amounts owed at the time of sale. For purposes of this section, the time of purchase shall be the time 1) an auction ends with a successful Buyer; 2) the buy it now function is utilized by the Buyer; or 3) an offer made is accepted by the other party to the transaction.
 
Seller agrees to release the vehicle purchased to the Buyer upon receipt of payment to Turn Automotive and only upon presentation by Buyer of a gate pass issued by Turn Automotive for the purchased vehicle. Turn Automotive will not be responsible for any payments for a vehicle if the Seller releases a vehicle without validating the gate pass. Buyer is responsible for the transportation of any vehicle purchased, and Seller shall make all necessary and reasonable accommodations to assist in Buyer taking possession of the vehicle upon Buyer presenting a valid gate pass.
 
In addition to whatever rights of set-off Turn Automotive may have in any jurisdiction where vehicles are sold, if User fails to pay Fees or other amounts owing when due to Turn Automotive, or if User is subject to an open arbitration under this Agreement, Turn Automotive will be entitled to immediately set off the amounts owed by User from any funds due from Turn Automotive to User, or hold the amounts until any open arbitration is finally resolved.
 
In addition, if you fail to pay the Total Payment Amount within twenty-four hours of the time of purchase, we may: (a) electronically debit your bank account or floor plan account in accordance with the default payment method selected by you or another account made available to Turn Automotive; (b) withhold title documents until all amounts owed have been paid; (c) cancel the sale transaction; (d) assess a $100.00 late fee every seventy-two (72) hours after the time of purchase until Turn Automotive receives the Total Payment Amount (“late fee”); (e) charge interest on any past due amounts at the rate of one and one half (1.5%) percent per month, calculated in U.S. dollars, or the maximum rate allowed by law, whichever is less; and/or (f) pursue any other remedy or relief permitted by law. If Turn Automotive accepts payment from Buyer by ACH electronic transfer, Buyer authorizes Turn Automotive to initiate debit entries to its account at the financial institution designated on Buyer’s ACH form. The ACH authorization will remain in force until we have received written notice from you of its termination. Turn Automotive reserves the right to decline payment by ACH at any time and for any reason. Any payment that is withdrawn by Buyer or its bank, rejected or returned for non-sufficient funds (“NSF”), rejected due to no account or incorrect account information, or any other reason (“Rejected Payment”), must be settled and replaced immediately. A Rejected Payment will be subject to “late fees” and/or a service charge up to the maximum amount allowed by law and shall be immediately due and payable. Turn Automotive will not be liable for any incidental or consequential damages resulting from any transaction we initiate pursuant to the section. For purposes of this section, the time of purchase shall be the time 1) an auction ends with a successful Buyer; 2) the buy it now function is utilized by the Buyer; or 3) an offer made is accepted by the other party to the transaction.
 
Turn Automotive will pay Seller, via ACH electronic funds transfer, the purchase price of the vehicle less the Fees or charges due from Seller to Turn Automotive after receipt and verification of a properly executed, negotiable and marketable title from Seller.
 
User agrees to pay all costs including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees, court costs and other expenses reasonably incurred by Turn Automotive in connection with the collection of any monies owing by User.

13. Storage of Vehicles:

Unless expressly agreed to the contrary in a writing signed by Turn Automotive, Turn Automotive is not a bailee of your property, consigned or otherwise. Seller is responsible for damage to any vehicle sold while it is in Seller’s possession except for Acts of God. Any damage caused by an Act of God is the sole responsibility of the Buyer unless said damage occurred before the transaction was created in the Turn Automotive platform and was not disclosed by Seller. Buyer is responsible for any and all damage once a vehicle is picked up by Buyer, Buyer’s agent or a transporter of any kind. For purposes of this section, an Act of God is defined as any naturally occurring catastrophe, such as earthquake, tornado, erupting volcano, hail, lightning, windstorm or hurricane.

14. Title Policy:

You acknowledge and agree that some vehicles are sold title absent and you must operate within your state's rules, regulations and laws concerning the certificate of title. A Seller agrees to deliver to Turn Automotive a properly executed, negotiable and marketable title, clear of all liens and encumbrances, within thirty (30) calendar days of the Transaction date or as required by the rules, regulations, and laws of the state in which Seller transacts business, whichever is earlier. Titles are to be sent via trackable mail, signature required to Turn Automotive, 2 Kiel Avenue PMB 241, Kinnelon, New Jersey 07405, or any other address designated by Turn Automotive in the future.
 
Seller’s failure to deliver marketable title within the applicable time period may result in late fees and shall authorize Buyer or Turn Automotive to cancel the transaction, and the transaction shall be treated as abandoned by the Seller and subject to imposition of fees for abandoned Transactions, as provided for herein.
 
Turn Automotive may assess to Seller, and Seller agrees to pay, a $100.00 late title fee for any title delivered more than thirty (30) calendar days after completion of the Transaction. Turn Automotive will assess to Seller an additional $100.00 late title fee every seven (7) calendar days beyond thirty (30) days after the completion of the Transaction until Seller produces a marketable title or Buyer or Turn Automotive cancels the Transaction. This is in addition to any fees assessed for abandoned Transactions.
 
The Seller will ensure that title is reassigned directly to the Buyer. Turn Automotive is not the buyer of the vehicle and does not take title or possession of the vehicle, and therefore any title listing Turn Automotive as the Buyer will be returned to the Seller to be corrected.
 
You agree to indemnify and hold harmless Turn Automotive from any liability, loss costs, damage or expense, including attorney fees which may arise either directly or indirectly from the sale and purchase of the vehicle including but not limited to title services provided.

15. Dispute Resolution/Arbitration, Governing Law and Venue:

You acknowledge that prior to using the Services, you have carefully reviewed this dispute resolution/arbitration clause and agree to be bound by it.
