We cannot and do not control whether or not sellers will complete the sale of stories they offer or buyers will complete the purchases of stories they have bid on.

In addition, note that there are risks of dealing with foreign nationals, underage persons or people acting under false pretence.

This website shall not be responsible for any stories sold by Auction nor for misrepresentations and/or breaches of contract by either buyer and/or seller.

This website assumes no liability for the content of the listings. However if you fall victim of a fraudulent transaction we will assist you as much as we can.

In our sole discretion, we may assign this User Agreement to a third party by giving you notice in accordance with the Notices section above (but without your prior express consent), provided that we assign the User Agreement on the same terms or terms that are no less advantageous to you.

Section headings are for reference purposes only and do not limit the scope or extent of the sections.
