This Terms of Use Agreement sets forth the standards of use of the website at www.TheTappanCollective.com (the “Site”) operated by THE TAPPAN COLLECTIVE (“TAPPAN” or “we” or “us”). By using the Site, you (“you” or the “Member”) agree to these terms and conditions.  If you do not agree to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, you should immediately cease all usage of the Site.  We reserve the right, at any time, to modify, alter, or update the terms and conditions of this agreement without prior notice. Modifications shall become effective immediately upon being posted at the Site. Your continued use of the Site after amendments are posted constitutes an acknowledgement and acceptance of the Agreement and its modifications. Except as provided in this paragraph, this Agreement may not be amended. We have other policies, guidelines, FAQs and requirements that we post elsewhere on TAPPAN from time to time. We expect that you will, and you agree to, abide by any other requirements posted on TAPPAN. All of those policies, guidelines, FAQs and other requirements are incorporated into these Terms.

Description of Service.
TAPPAN is providing Member with access to buy and sell artwork. Each Member must provide (1) all equipment necessary for his or her own Internet connection and (2) provide for Member’s access to the Internet, and (3) pay any fees related to such connection. You must be 18 years old or older to use TAPPAN or have a legal guardian agree that you can use TAPPAN. We also allow businesses to use TAPPAN and make purchases. If you are using TAPPAN on behalf of a business, then you must have authority, and your use of TAPPAN is a warranty that you have the authority, to bind that business to these Terms. You will be responsible for all activity that occurs under your username and password. We therefore recommend that you keep your password secure and don’t allow others to use your username. The only way that we have to verify your identity is through your username and password, so keep them to yourself.

Disclaimer of Warranties.
The Site is provided by TAPPAN on an “as is” and on an “as available” basis. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, TAPPAN makes no representations or warranties of any kind, express or implied, regarding the use or the results of the Site in terms of its correctness, accuracy, reliability, or otherwise. TAPPAN shall have no liability for any interruptions in the use of the Site. TAPPAN disclaims all warranties with regard to the information provided, including the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose, and non-infringement. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties; therefore, the above-referenced exclusion may be inapplicable.

TAPPAN SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, AND IN PARTICULAR MAMMOTH SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, OR DAMAGES FOR LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF REVENUE, OR LOSS OF USE, ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE SITE OR THE INFORMATION CONTAINED IN IT, WHETHER SUCH DAMAGES ARISE IN CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, TORT, UNTER STATUTE, IN EQUITY, AT LAW, OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF MAMMOTH HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW FOR THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES; THEREFORE SOME OF THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY BE INAPPLICABLE.

Indemnification.
Member agrees to indemnify and hold TAPPAN, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers and employees, harmless from any claim or demand, including attorneys’ fees and costs, made by any third party due to or arising out of Member’s use of the Site, the violation of this Agreement, or violation of any law by Member.

Modifications and Interruption to Site.
TAPPAN reserves the right to modify or discontinue the Site with or without notice to the Member. TAPPAN shall not be liable to Member or any third party should TAPPAN exercise its right to modify or discontinue the Site.

Purchasers of items from the Site (“Customers”) are responsible for paying all fees and applicable taxes in a timely manner with a valid payment method.

MISC
We support the practice of re-posting to the web, and think that it benefits our artists. As long as you include a link back to TAPPAN and the page on which that image or content appears we’re fine with your re-posting of content, thumbnails, links to TAPPAN, etc., in your blogs, social-network postings, listings, etc.
