Importantly, although shopmovies.co.uk (Shopmovies Ltd.) is commonly referred to as an online marketplace, it is not a traditional “retailer.” Instead, Shopmovies acts as a venue to match buyers and sellers. Shopmovies is not involved in the actual transaction between buyers and sellers and does not transfer legal ownership of items from the sellers to buyers. As a result, Shopmovies has no control over the items advertised, or the ability of sellers to sell items or the ability of buyers to pay for items.
“Your Information” is defined as any information you provide to Shopmovies or other users in the registration, in the listing process (which includes photographs and descriptions), in any public message area (including the Forums or the feedback area) or through any email feature. You are solely responsible for Your Information, and Shopmovies acts as a passive conduit for your online distribution and publication of Your Information.
“Your Activities” include, for example, listing items, posting comments in any public message area (including the Forums or the feedback area), and email.
