Accepting These Terms
Crown Centric’s Services connect people to sell, and buy goods. Here is a guide to help you understand the specific rules that are relevant for you, depending on how you use the Services.
Our Rules are for Everyone, including browsers. If you use any of our Services, you agree to these Terms.

Buyers – If you use our Services to browse or shop, these policies apply to you.
1. Your Privacy
2. Your Account with Crown Centric
You’ll need to create an account with Crown Centric to use some of our Services. Here are a few rules about accounts with Crown Centric:
- You must be 18 years or older to use our Services.
- Be honest with us. Provide accurate information about yourself. It’s prohibited to use false information or impersonate another person or company through your account.
- Choose an appropriate name. If you decide to not have your full name serve as the name associated with your account, you may not use language that is offensive, vulgar, infringes someone’s intellectual property rights, or otherwise violates the Terms.
- You’re responsible for your account. You’re solely responsible for any activity on your account. If you’re sharing an account with other people, then the person whose financial information is on the account will ultimately be responsible for all activity. If you’re registering as a business entity, you personally guarantee that you have the authority to agree to the Terms on behalf of the business. Also, your accounts are not transferable.
- Protect your password. As we mentioned above, you’re solely responsible for any activity on your account, so it’s important to keep your account password secure.
- Be clear about our relationship. These Terms don’t create any agency, partnership, joint venture, employment, or franchisee relationship between you and Crown Centric.
3. Your Content
Content that you post using our Services is your content. We don’t make any claim to it, which includes anything you post using our Services (like business names, profile pictures, listing photos, listing descriptions, reviews, comments, videos, usernames, etc.).
Responsibility for Your Content. You understand that you are solely responsible for Your Content. You represent that you have all necessary rights to Your Content and that you’re not infringing or violating any third party’s rights by posting it.
Permission to Use Your Content. By posting Your Content through our Services, you grant Crown Centric a license to use it. We don’t claim any ownership to Your Content, but we have your permission to use it to help Crown Centric function and grow. That way, we won’t infringe any rights you have in Your Content and we can help promote your stuff. For example, you acknowledge and agree Crown Centric may offer you or Crown Centric buyers promotions on the Site, from time to time, that may relate to your listings
Rights You Grant Crown Centric. By posting Your Content, you grant Crown Centric a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable, sub-licensable, perpetual license to use, display, edit, modify, reproduce, distribute, store, and prepare derivative works of Your Content. This allows us to provide the Services and to promote Crown Centric, your Crown Centric products, or the Services in general, in any formats and through any channels, including across any Crown Centric Services, our partners, or third-party website or advertising medium. You agree not to assert any moral rights or rights of publicity against us for using Your Content. You also recognize our legitimate interest in using it, in accordance with the scope of this license, to the extent Your Content contains any personal information.
That sounds like a lot, but it’s necessary for us to keep Crown Centric going. Consider these examples: if you upload a photo of a listing on Crown Centric, we have permission to display it to buyers, and we can resize it so it looks good to a buyer; and if you post a beautiful photo of your latest products, we can feature it on our homepage, in one of our blogs or even on a billboard to help promote your business and Crown Centric’s.
Reporting Unauthorized Content. Crown Centric has great respect for intellectual property rights, and is committed to following appropriate legal procedures to remove infringing content from the Services. If content that you own or have rights to has been posted to the Services without your permission and you want it removed, please contact us. If Your Content is alleged to infringe another person’s intellectual property, we will take appropriate action, such as disabling it if we receive proper notice or terminating your account if you are found to be a repeat infringer.
Inappropriate, False, or Misleading Content. You agree that you will not post any content that is abusive, threatening, defamatory, obscene, vulgar, or otherwise offensive or in violation of any of our Terms. You also agree not to post any content that is false and misleading or uses the Services in a manner that is fraudulent or deceptive.
4. Your Use of Our Services
License to Use Our Services. We grant you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, and revocable license to use our Services—subject to the Terms and the following restrictions in particular:
Don’t Use Our Services to Break the Law. You agree that you will not violate any laws in connection with your use of the Services. This includes any local, state, federal, and international laws that may apply to you. For example, it’s your responsibility to obtain any permits or licenses that your business requires; you may not sell anything that violates any laws; and you may not engage in fraud (including false claims or infringement notices), theft, anti-competitive conduct, threatening conduct, or any other unlawful acts or crimes against Crown Centric, another Crown Centric user, or a third party.
Pay Your Bills. You are responsible for paying all fees that you owe to Crown Centric. Except as set forth below, you are also solely responsible for collecting and/or paying any applicable taxes for any purchases or sales you make through our Services. Crown Centric will calculate, collect, and remit sales tax where applicable. Your fees, bills, taxes, and how you can pay them are fully explained in the Seller Fees & Payments Policy.
Don’t Steal Our Stuff. You agree not to crawl, scrape, or spider any page of the Services or to reverse engineer or attempt to obtain the source code of the Services.
Don’t Try to Harm Our Systems. You agree not to interfere with or try to disrupt our Services, for example by distributing a virus or other harmful computer code.
Follow Our Trademark Policy. The name “Crown Centric” and the other Crown Centric marks, phrases, logos, and designs that we use in connection with our Services, are trademarks, service marks of Crown Centric in the US.
Share Your Ideas. Your suggestions and ideas can help us improve your experience and our Services. Any unsolicited ideas or other materials you submit to Crown Centric (not including Your Content or items you sell through our Services) are considered non-confidential and non-proprietary to you. You grant us a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable, sub-licensable, perpetual license to use and publish those ideas and materials for any purpose, without compensation to you.
Talk to Us Online. From time to time, Crown Centric will provide you with certain legal information in writing. By using our Services, you’re agreeing to how we provide that information to you. We can send you information electronically (such as by email) instead of mailing you paper copies (it’s better for the environment), and that your electronic agreement is the same as your signature on paper.
Termination By You. You may terminate your account with Crown Centric at any time. Even if you terminate service you are still required to pay any outstanding bills.
Termination By Crown Centric. We may terminate or suspend your account (and any related accounts) and your access to the Services at any time, for any reason, and without advance notice. If we do so, it’s important to understand that you don’t have a contractual or legal right to continue to use our Services, for example, to sell or buy on our website. Crown Centric may refuse service to anyone, at any time, for any reason. If you or Crown Centric terminate your account, you may lose any information associated with your account, including Your Content.
Crown Centric reserves the right to change, suspend, or discontinue any of the Services at any time, for any reason. We will not be liable to you for the effect that any changes to the Services may have on you, including your income or your ability to generate revenue through the Services. The Terms will remain in effect even after your access to the Service is terminated, or your use of the Service ends.
6. Warranties and Limitation of Liability (Things You Can’t Sue Us For)
Items You Purchase. You understand that Crown Centric does not manufacture, store, or inspect any of the items sold through our Services. We provide the platform; the items in our mall are produced, listed, and sold directly by independent sellers, so Crown Centric cannot and does not make any warranties about their quality, safety, or even their legality. Any legal claim related to an item you purchase must be brought directly against the seller of the item. You release Crown Centric from any claims related to items sold through our Services, including for defective items, misrepresentations by sellers, or items that caused physical injury (like product liability claims).
Content You Access. We make no representations concerning any content posted by users. Crown Centric is not responsible for the accuracy, copyright compliance, legality, or decency of content posted by users that you accessed through the Services. You release us from all liability relating to that content.
People You Interact With. Crown Centric does not screen users of our platform, and you release us from all liability relating to your interactions with other users. In general, please be careful and exercise caution and good judgment in all interactions with others, especially if you are meeting someone in person.
7. Indemnification (What Happens If You Get Us Sued)
We hope this never happens, but if Crown Centric gets sued because of something that you did, you agree to defend and indemnify us. That means you’ll defend Crown Centric (including any of our employees) and hold us harmless from any legal claim or demand (including reasonable attorney’s fees) that arises from your actions, your use (or misuse) of our Services, your breach of the Terms, or your account’s infringement of someone else’s rights. We reserve the right to handle our legal defense however we see fit, even if you are indemnifying us, in which case you agree to cooperate with us.
