Terms and Conditions of Use
Bought Beautifully is an online platform that exists to: 1) share information about products and organizations that are available to consumers; 2) provide a marketplace platform where products are available for purchase; and 3) be a source of information and inspiration on how to live out your faith in the 21st century economy.
Bought Beautifully provides a marketplace platform for users who comply with our policies, to find information, and display and sell products on agreed-upon terms.
Bought Beautifully is not directly involved in the transaction between any parties; we only provide the platform for the transaction to take place. As a result, Bought Beautifully has no liability or responsibility for any matter arising out of the transaction between a vendor and a buyer. Bought Beautifully is not liable for any damages that may result from any transaction. Bought Beautifully makes no guarantees or representations as to the quality, safety, accuracy or legality of any aspect of the items listed on this site, or as to the ability of a vendor to sell items, or the ability of a buyer to purchase any item. Bought Beautifully cannot ensure that a buyer or vendor will complete a transaction. Therefore, please exercise caution and common sense, and communicate directly with the other party in a transaction before committing to or proceeding with a transaction. The items, which might be bought and sold on the Bought Beautifully platform, are never the property of the site, and Bought Beautifully does not transfer legal ownership of items from the seller to the buyer.
You agree that Bought Beautifully is only designed to provide a platform that permits parties to enter into transactions. By using our site, you agree to use the platform and any related services at your own risk.
To be eligible to use our site as a platform for buying and selling items, you must be at least 18 years of age or older, and must have the capacity to form legally binding contracts under applicable law. When signing up for our services, you represent that you are at least 18 years old and that all information you submit is true and accurate. In addition, you authorize Bought Beautifully to make any inquiries necessary to validate your identity. This may include asking you for further information, requiring you to take steps to confirm ownership of your email address or financial instruments, and/or verifying your information against third party databases or other sources. Bought Beautifully may, in its sole discretion, refuse to offer access to or use of the Site to any person or entity and change its eligibility criteria at any time.

If Bought Beautifully terminates your account, if you close your account, or if the payment of your fees cannot be completed for any reason, you remain obligated to pay Bought Beautifully for all unpaid fees plus any penalties, if applicable. If the vendor’s account is not paid in full and becomes past due, the vendor risks penalties such as the suspension of privileges and/or termination of the account. Bought Beautifully may also, at its election, pursue other collection mechanisms, including turning the debt over to collection agencies. In the event that Bought Beautifully retains legal counsel to enforce payment of any sums past due, the vendor whose account is past-due will be responsible for all costs and legal fees incurred in obtaining payment or a legal judgment against the debtor.
