Welcome to ClassifiedRide.com, a service of ClassifiedRide.com, Inc. By using this website, you accept the terms of this Visitor Agreement. This is a legally binding agreement between you and ClassifiedRide.com; please read it carefully.
General Provisions ClassifiedRide.com respects your privacy. Please take a moment to review our privacy statement labeled "Privacy Statement" herein. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org, along with an explanation of your objection.
ClassifiedRide.com may change the terms of this Visitor Agreement from time to time. By continuing to use this website following our posting of such changes, you agree to be bound by this Visitor Agreement, as modified. ClassifiedRide.com 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 ClassifiedRide.com website is for informational purposes only. Despite our efforts to provide useful and accurate information, errors may appear from time to time. Before purchasing a vehicle or other goods or services you've read about on ClassifiedRide.com, you should confirm with the seller any information (including the price) that is important to your purchasing decision. ClassifiedRide.com is not responsible for, and does not guarantee the performance of, any such vehicles, goods or services.
Buying and Selling Vehicle ClassifiedRide.com 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 ClassifiedRide.com. 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 ClassifiedRide.com 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 ClassifiedRide.com 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 the check he/she gets from the buyer isn't going to bounce. When using this website to find a buyer for your vehicle or a vehicle you can buy, we urge you to use the same common sense and good judgment you would use in selling a car through, or responding to, a classified ad in the newspaper.
Please read our fraud awareness tips before you buy or sell a car through a classified ad, whether on ClassifiedRide.com or in your local newspaper. 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 display of your listing. We may also screen some email messages sent to sellers about vehicles listed on ClassifiedRide.com. 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.
All classified listing ads are not to be used to advertise more than one vehicle per ad purchased, regardless of ad duration. For this reason, ClassifiedRide may not allow you to edit your vehicle's Year, Make, Model or VIN once you've purchased your ad. Always double-check this information before submitting your ad.
Individuals who seek to list more than five vehicles on the ClassifiedRide.com website simultaneously, and all dealers, must make other arrangements with us. To find out more about listing and advertising opportunities on ClassifiedRide.com, visit http://www.classifiedride.com/dealer. By using our private seller listing service, you represent 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. ClassifiedRide.com reserves the right to deny use of this website to anyone who does not comply with these requirements or who otherwise uses our website in a manner we consider inappropriate. This includes both paid and free ad listings.
ClassifiedRide.com offers a variety of ad packages, with combinations of features that vary by market area. For information about the ad packages available to private sellers in your area, please go to Private Seller Section. If you are a Dealer customer, please visit our Dealer Section for more information.
When you list a vehicle for sale through our Private listing services, we may obtain additional distribution for your listing through our relationships with other websites, including Autoglance.com, CarAccess.com, and USAutoplex.com. We also may promote your listing on or through third-party websites or services. Neither ClassifiedRide.com nor any website through which we distribute or promote your listing will charge you any additional fee for this additional exposure. It is just added value from ClassifiedRide.com. 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 ClassifiedRide.com's 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 ClassifiedRide.com partner, that is false advertising.
By placing an ad through our private seller listing process, you agree to pay the fees specified for the package you select, regardless of whether your vehicle sells as a result of the listing. Take care in selecting your ad package and inputting your ad information; listing fees are generally not refundable, even if you provide erroneous information or fail to sell your vehicle.
Our used car listings include vehicles that have been "certified" as meeting certain standards established by manufacturers and/or dealers in connection with their pre-owned vehicle programs. The decision to certify any particular vehicle is made by the certifying manufacturer or dealer, and the vehicle information included in ClassifiedRide.com's certified vehicle listing is provided by the listing dealer. Neither ClassifiedRide.com nor the manufacturer is responsible for the accuracy of any information contained in a certified vehicle listing and only the manufacturer or dealer that certifies a vehicle is responsible for the decision to certify that vehicle. You should familiarize yourself with the terms of the applicable certification program before buying any certified vehicle. Ads purchased by private sellers through our Sell Your Car service will not appear in any "certified" area of our website. Our certified ads apply only to vehicles certified by the automobile manufacturers with which we have partnerships.
Refund Policy ClassifiedRide.com offers great value through favorable listing fees for wide exposure for your vehicle and effective enhancements to improve the chances of a buyer noticing your Ad in addition to free listings. ClassifiedRide.com therefore cannot generally offer refunds on listing fees.
ClassifiedRide.com adheres to the following policy with respect to requests for refunds of listing fees:
1. ClassifiedRide.com will not provide any refund, for any reason, if ClassifiedRide.com receives the request for refund more than 72 hours after an Ad has been ordered. If you contact us after 72 hours, we will correct any mistakes we have made in the Ad, but cannot offer a refund.
2. If you call within 72 hours of ordering an Ad, ClassifiedRide.com will provide a refund only for the following reasons:
(i) Your Ad has not been posted and you wish to cancel the Ad (but you must first allow 24 hours for photos and up to 48 hours for multiple photos to post); or
(ii) You mistakenly ordered and paid for duplicate Ads through ClassifiedRide.com and seek to cancel, and obtain a refund on, the duplicate(s) only. We cannot, however, provide a refund on the original Ad. If you listed your vehicle through any other source (such as a newspaper or other publication) and obtained an Ad on ClassifiedRide.com through that source, that Ad on ClassifiedRide.com is not a "duplicate" of any paid ClassifiedRide.com Ad that you may also have ordered, and you are not entitled to cancel and obtain a refund on the paid ClassifiedRide.com Ad.
3. ClassifiedRide.com cannot provide a refund for any other reason, even if you call within 72 hours of ordering an Ad. For example, we cannot provide a refund if you change your mind about the Ad, or its content or enhancements, or if you have made mistakes in submitting the Ad, or if you have not received any inquiries or offers to purchase the vehicle through ClassifiedRide.com, or if the vehicle has already been sold through other means. We also cannot provide a refund if ClassifiedRide.com has made mistakes in the content or enhancements of the Ad. In any case where ClassifiedRide.com has made such mistakes, we will of course make appropriate corrections to the Ad.
4. If you made mistakes in submitting an Ad directly with ClassifiedRide.com, we will make corrections to the Ad. There will be no charge for these corrections, unless you wish to order additional enhancements, in which cases there may be an additional charge. If you wish to change to a less expensive Ad, however, ClassifiedRide.com cannot provide any refund. Please note, however, that if your Ad on ClassifiedRide.com was purchased through some other listing service (such as a local newspaper or other publication), we do not have the authority to make any changes to your Ad.
Fee-Based Services If you accept fee-based products or features, you agree to the terms and conditions governing all such purchases, including all requirements to pay applicable fees and charges. ClassifiedRide.com will notify you of any changes to fees and charges. Please add email@example.com to your email address to avoid any such possible notices going into your spam folder.
ClassifiedRide.com may offer trial subscriptions to paid services for free or at special discounted prices. Unless otherwise stated, these trial subscriptions and any other subscription services we provide will be automatically renewed at the current subscription rate if you do not cancel before the end of the trial or subscription period. You may need to cancel your subscription at least 10 days prior to its renewal date in order to avoid further charges.
Unless otherwise stated in our Refund Policy, all fees and charges are non-refundable, including for unused portions of cancelled subscriptions. ClassifiedRide.com does not provide price protection or refunds in the event of a price drop or promotional offering.
Third-Party Services For your convenience, we make available a variety of links to other websites that we don't 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 cannot guarantee the prices, terms, quality, reliability or performance of the products or services provided by these vendors. ClassifiedRide.com is not responsible for the products or services these vendors provide. You may choose to purchase an inspection through such a third-party website for a vehicle advertised on our website 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 car, an inspection is not a guarantee that the inspected car 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 ClassifiedRide.com and its affiliates from any damages that you may incur, and agree not to assert any claims against 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 car dealerships that list their cars on the ClassifiedRide.com 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 ClassifiedRide.com and its affiliates from any damages that you may incur, and agree not to assert any claims against them, arising from your entry, participation or acceptance of any prize in any such sweepstakes or contest offer.

By accessing this website, you agree not to use information concerning other users of ClassifiedRide.com, or the vehicles they have listed or searched for on this website (including listing information, user names, email addresses, telephone numbers, and/or other information), for any purpose other than to explore the potential purchase or sale of a listed vehicle.

ClassifiedRide.com, Inc. respects the privacy of visitors to our website. This Privacy Statement applies only to information collected online through the ClassifiedRide.com website and does not describe the ways in which we may collect or use information obtained offline or through any means other than our website. Please read this Privacy Statement carefully so that you understand what information we collect through our website and what we do with that information. If you have any questions about this Privacy Statement, please contact us at email@example.com.
THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
The information we gather generally falls into two categories: (1) information supplied by visitors to the website when they list a car for sale, perform a search, enter a sweepstakes or other promotional contest, download our Go Global Software, or inquire about a vehicle listed for sale or about another product or service offered through our website; and (2) information we collect as visitors use our website.
Third-party providers involved in the operation of the website (including, but not limited to, vendors of products and services and providers of widgets, tools, and applications) featured on or linked to by our website may also collect information about you. Their collection and use of this information will be subject to their privacy policies.
Communicating with us If you find a listing that interests you and elect to send the seller an email through our website, we will share with the seller the contact information you supply through our online "Email this Seller" form. Some dealerships that list vehicles for sale on our website use third-party service providers to manage their "leads" (that is, the inquiries they receive from consumers who are interested in the vehicles they've listed for sale). If a dealership has designated a provider of lead management services, we may also share with that provider any information you elect to send to the dealership through our "Email this Seller" form. Vehicle manufacturers like to monitor how responsive their franchised dealers are to consumer inquiries. To help them monitor and improve dealer performance, we may also provide vehicle manufacturers with the information you send their franchised dealers using our "Email this Seller" tool. If you find a listing for a certified pre-owned vehicle that interests you and elect to send the seller an email through our website, we will also share the information you supply through our "Email this Seller" form with the manufacturer of the vehicle you are inquiring about (which administers the certified pre-owned program) to use for quality assurance, internal business analysis, process management, and other similar purposes. If you do not wish to share your email address or other contact information with sellers who advertise on our website, lead management service providers, and vehicle manufacturers, you should not use our "Email this Seller" contact form.
If you choose to receive a vehicle listing on your mobile phone, we or a service provider acting on our behalf will use the phone number you provide to send the listing you request. By providing us with your mobile phone number, you agree that we may send this information to your mobile phone via text message or email.
You may sign up for or use certain products, services and tools on our website that require or permit you to provide information about yourself, such as your name, physical address, email address and phone number. For example, you may provide such information if you sign up for our newsletters, complete our "Feedback" form or use a social media or interactive tool. We may use such information in order to provide you with the products, services or tools you have requested.
When you list a car for sale, we ask for information on the car and on how you can be contacted by potential buyers (including information like your phone number and email address). We also ask for your credit card number/paypal ID and the expiration date on your card. We use this information to create your ad and to process your payment (please see the section on "Use and Disclosure of Information" below for more information about how we use and secure credit card information). We may also use information you submit to us in connection with your purchase of that listing, including your name and location, on third-party sites and mobile applications where we distribute or promote your listing.
In addition to the above, we may collect information, and/or use the information we collect, in the following specific ways:
Searches and Listings To make use of certain features on our website, visitors need to provide limited information about themselves and their interests so that we can tailor the information we provide to their needs. For example, to help you find the car you want close to home, we need to know what kind of car you are looking for and your zip code. We ask you to provide this information when you perform a search. We use this information to help you find the car you are looking for or as otherwise described in this Privacy Statement.
Sweepstakes and Other Promotions From time to time, we may offer sweepstakes or other promotions on our website. If you enter a sweepstakes or promotional contest, we will ask you to provide information about yourself (such as your name, phone number, address, date of birth, and email address). Among other things, we will use this information to contact you if you win, and we may also use this information for marketing purposes. We may share this information with any co-sponsor of the contest or sweepstakes; we will identify the co-sponsor in the contest rules. We may also share this information with shipping or fulfillment companies or other third-party service providers that help administer our promotions, such as by conducting drawings, and/or delivering prizes to winners. If you do not want us to collect the information requested in the contest or sweepstakes registration form or to provide it to co-sponsors, please do not enter the contest or sweepstakes.
Online Surveys From time to time, we survey our users to measure their satisfaction with our website and other sites and to help us learn more about our audience and how they interact with our website. Third-party research firms often conduct these surveys on our behalf. We use the survey results to help us improve the services we offer to you. Except in the circumstances described below in the "Other Disclosures" section of this policy, we will not share, without your consent, any personally-identifying information you submit in response to an ClassifiedRide.com survey with any company other than the research firm conducting the survey. We will, however, take the information you provide and aggregate it on an anonymous basis with data collected from other survey participants. We may use and disclose that pool of anonymous information as we see fit, without identifying you personally.
ClassifiedRide.com Go Global Download If you choose to download the Go Global software, we will ask you for your contact information, including your name, telephone number and email address (if not provided in the registration form on ClassifiedRide.com). We may also ask for additional optional information, like your zip code and your computer location. We will also ask you for a description of the vehicle that you want to sell or trade, including detailed information about the condition and history of the car (if this information was not provided on the classified listing you have submitted upon registration on ClassifiedRide's website). We will use the information you provide to prepare and send vehicles from your computer location upon download of our Go Global software. Our Go Global software is downloaded by clicking a link and entering a specific product key that identifies your IP with your download submission. By so downloading, you acknowledge that ClassifiedRide.com is authorized to distribute vehicles using your IP address and consent to this advertising addition.
Interests in Trading Your Vehicle By clicking that you are interested in trading in your vehicle on ClassifiedRide.com when uploading your vehicle for sale, your information will be submitted to ClassifiedRide.com participating dealers within 100 mile radius, letting them know you are interested in trading your vehicle. This means we will share your contact and vehicle information with dealer(s) so that the dealer(s) can communicate with you about your interest in selling or trading in your car. If you indicate that you are considering the purchase of a replacement vehicle, we will share your information with participating dealer(s) in your area so that they can contact you about vehicles that may match your interests. All dealerships ranging from 101-500 miles outside your location may be contacted upon ClassifiedRide's discretion based on your specific location and the amount of dealerships in the local area.
Dealership Interest in Purchasing Your Vehicle By clicking that you are interested in a dealership purchasing your vehicle on ClassifiedRide.com when uploading your vehicle for sale, your information will be submitted to ClassifiedRide.com participating dealers within 100 mile radius, letting them know you are interested in selling your vehicle to them. We refer to these leads as consignment leads, meaning that a participating dealership may have a buyer who wants a similar vehicle as the one in which you are selling and will want to purchase this vehicle from you. This means we will share your contact and vehicle information with dealer(s) so that the dealer(s) can communicate with you about your interest in selling or trading in your car. All dealerships ranging from 101-500 miles outside your location may be contacted upon ClassifiedRide's discretion based on your specific location and the amount of dealerships in the local area.
Dealership Directory and Dealer Reviews. ClassifiedRide.com's dealership directory is public information regarding dealership information and location. Dealer reviews are submitted content by users. ClassifiedRide is in no way responsible for any content of such user that is submitted to ClassifiedRide's dealer review section. Likewise, users are required to post reviews in good faith of only accurate personal experiences. Posting multiple fictitious reviews is violates ClassifiedRide's terms and conditions. If a dealership is conceded and wishes to have information reviewed or changed, as an accommodation, ClassifiedRide.com may choose to do so but may also refuse to do so. Please notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org to report any abuse or illicit content.
Content Responsibility for the information contained in each listing lies with each seller. You alone are responsible for material you post and for the content of all email messages you transmit through ClassifiedRide.com. Nothing will undermine a user's confidence in the vehicle you're 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 ClassifiedRide.com users fairly and honorably.
Though we cannot monitor every transaction that originates through a listing on ClassifiedRide.com, we may perform random quality assurance tests to confirm that those who offer vehicles for sale over ClassifiedRide.com are prepared to sell the vehicles they advertise at the prices at which, and the terms on which, they advertise them. By using our listing services, you agree to cooperate in these random quality assurance tests. If our tests reveal, or we otherwise learn, that a seller is engaging in "bait and switch" or other unfair or deceptive practices, ClassifiedRide.com reserves the right to deny that seller use of their listing services.ClassifiedRide.com does not control, is not responsible for and makes no representations or warranties with respect to any user content.

ClassifiedRide.com is intended and designed as a local service. A user may post content only to the single specific geographic area offered on ClassifiedRide for which that content is most relevant. The same or substantially similar content (for example, an ad for a particular vehicle) may not be posted to or communicated via more than one such geographic area. Content that is equally relevant to multiple (i.e., more than one) geographic areas should not be posted on ClassifiedRide.com.
The same or substantially similar content may not be posted in more than one ClassifiedRide.com category (i.e. cars, trucks, motorcycles, etc). A user may post content only in the single ClassifiedRide category to which it is most relevant, and must not post content to inappropriate categories. For example, content advertising a motorcycle must be posted under Motorcycle section and may not be posted in the "Boats" section.
A user may post the same vehicle no more than once every 48 hours if using free listing services. Users must delete their previous ad before they re-post.
Where a ClassifiedRide category provides specific subcategories for posts by particular types of users (e.g., car sales "by-owners" versus "by-dealers,"), a user may post content only in the single user sub-category most accurate for that user. In particular, no user acting as a broker, agent or dealer may post in any "by owner" category.
