The following Site Usage Terms and Conditions (“Site Usage Terms” and “Terms”) establish the terms of your use of Terra Point LLC’s (hereinafter referred to as “Terra Point,” “we,” or “us”) sites and services (www.terrapoint.com), as well as on-site events to be held by a Terra Point company or affiliate) (together, the “Site”).

Introduction: About Terra Point
Terra Point is an online platform that allows sellers to list and advertise their used heavy equipment for sale to a global audience of buyers. The actual contract for sale is directly between the seller and buyer. While Terra Point may help facilitate the resolution of disputes through various programs, Terra Point has no control over and does not guarantee the existence, quality, safety or legality of items advertised; the truth or accuracy of users' content or listings; the ability of sellers to sell items; the ability of buyers to pay for items; or that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction or return an item.
