HOW THE HUNT VINTAGE SITE OPERATES (WORKS)
The HUNT VINTAGE site provides an online platform on which sellers can create listings to sell goods (for example; vintage furniture & other items, quality antique furniture & other items, quality pre-owned or upcycled furniture, quality second-hand designer items, used high-end modern items, ex-display designer items, and other items listed at the sole discretion of Hunt Vintage) to buyers/users of the website (“Customers/Buyers”).
All/any transactions which occur on the site for the purchase of goods are between a Seller (dealer) and a Buyer (customer). You acknowledge that Hunt Vintage does not sell or purchase goods and is not directly involved in or otherwise is an agent or party to any transaction that may take place between a Vendor/seller and a Customer. Such transactions are governed by the Terms of Sale.
Although our only obligation to you is to make the website available for your use in accordance with these site terms and conditions, from time to time we may and in our sole discretion agree to provide additional intermediary services to facilitate communication between Customers and Sellers in relation to a transaction between a Buyer (Customer) and a Seller (dealer/Vendor). Where/when this is done, we accept no liability on behalf of either Sellers/dealers or buyers/Customers, and the Terms of Sale shall at all times apply to any contract for sale between sellers/dealers and buyers/Customers.
Please use your dealer’s login to view your own company’s seller account and the specific provisions for sellers (dealers). All sellers must read and accept our Best Practice Guidance for Dealers (sellers)
We presently use Stripe as our secure online payment partner, for all online customer transactions.
By using this Website customers (buyers) agree not to use it for any illegal, malicious or unauthorised purposes.
Hunt Vintage does not conduct any background checks on any of the Sellers using this website or oversee their business activities in any way. We are not responsible for and have no control over the quality, safety, morality, legality or insurance position of any goods or services offered for sale on the Hunt Vintage website or the accuracy and completeness of any statements, recommendations or instructions contained in the listings. As such, we do not make any warranties or representations in relation to the Goods listed by a Seller or the activities of a Seller in relation to the provision of Goods on the Site. In particular, we do not state, warrant or represent in any way that goods are of a suitable condition or comply with any representations made in the relevant listing, or indeed that the Seller has the right to provide the goods to a customer. The Customer acknowledges and agrees that it is his/her sole responsibility to apply checks, confirm and satisfy him/herself as to the accuracy of any/all information provided by the Seller. We totally disclaim all liability in this regard.
The seller is responsible at all times for ensuring the accuracy of the information listed on the Hunt Vintage platform. Any details listed and found to be a misrepresentation of the true condition/date etc. of the item, are the sole responsibility of the seller.
Customers/buyers acknowledge that by purchasing goods/items on the Site, they are purchasing from the Seller/dealer only and the Terms of Sale shall apply to the contract Customers/buyers enter into with the Seller/dealer. Any customer who has a question, comment or complaint in relation to a Seller or the Goods purchased from a Seller (including, cancellations, requests for a refund, late delivery, defective goods or anything else), the Customer may contact Hunt Vintage who will then attempt to contact the Vendor directly on the Customer’s behalf. We are not responsible for any failures by the Seller/dealer to resolve any issues reported to us.
While we are not responsible for refunds and returned items, Sellers are required to comply with relevant consumer protection laws and regulations. Consequently, Customers/buyers who are consumers (this excludes our business customers) are entitled to cancel any order for goods, as set out in the Terms of Sale.
LIMITATION OF HUNT VINTAGE AND OUR LIABILITY TO CUSTOMER
Goods no longer available
With the nature of the goods/items listed for sale on the Site being mostly unique vintage and antique items, it is possible that Seller may advertise and sell their goods elsewhere. They are therefore subject to availability and Hunt Vintage shall not be liable for any goods listed on the website which are no longer available.
If Hunt Vintage fails to comply with our site terms and conditions then we are responsible for the loss or damage a Customer suffers, that is a foreseeable (expected) result of our breaking this contract or our failing to use reasonable care and skill. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and the Customer knew it might happen.
If a Customer/buyer uses the site for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we hereby exclude our liability to the fullest extent permitted by Scots law and we will have no liability to the Customer for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, loss or damage to data or loss of business opportunity.
Hunt Vintage shall not be responsible for or liable for any acts or omissions of any third party providers (including Payment Providers) or in respect of any User/dealer content.
Nothing in these website terms and conditions shall exclude our liability to Customers for death or personal injury caused by negligence, fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation or any other liability that cannot be excluded or limited by Scots Law.
HUNT VINTAGE SERVICE FEE
Hunt Vintage reserves the right at all times to charge a Service Fee to buyers in consideration for the use of the platform. You will be notified of any applicable Service Fee and taxes prior to purchase on the listings and checkout pages. Presently we do not apply any service charge or fee.

Any changes to a fee, will not affect any orders made prior to the effective date of any fee change. Any Service Fees are non-refundable except in case of cancellation or return of a faulty good.
