The Site is an online research, information, listing, and advertising service. PureCars operates the Site primarily in order to help bring together buyers and sellers of automobiles and automotive related goods and services by providing relevant information that improves the buying process. PureCars does not sell vehicles directly. Neither PureCars nor the Site is a party to any transaction between buyers and sellers. Any and all concerns, discrepancies, or differences regarding a vehicle must be addressed with the seller prior to the sale of a vehicle. PureCars does not (a) guarantee, ensure, or warrant any vehicle or any transaction between a buyer and seller, (b) collect or process payments, fees, or transfer of title on behalf of buyers or sellers, or (c) warehouse, store, transport, deliver, service, repair, warrant, or insure, any vehicles.

Information related to vehicles available on the Site is supplied by the seller or other licensors, suppliers, service providers, distribution partners, advertisers, and/or other third-parties that PureCars does business with (the “Affiliates”), and discrepancies or errors may appear. PureCars does not purport to verify any of the information for accuracy, omissions, or completeness. PureCars is not responsible for the pricing, availability, location, performance, features, options, condition, or status (new, used, certified) of listed vehicles or goods and services found on the Site. PureCars does not ensure, warrant, or otherwise, guarantee the information contained or compiled on the Site.

Subject to the laws in your jurisdiction, the price and any other terms of any sale may remain subject to direct negotiation between the buyer and the seller only. The prices listed by sellers or other Affiliates may, among other things, exclude finance charges, license, title, regulatory, emission validation, dealer documentary, compliance fees, federal/state/local taxes, other fees, and other unlisted costs, any and all of which may be added to the listed price to arrive at the final sale price of a particular vehicle.

11.3 Force Majeure. In no event shall PureCars be liable to Customer, or be deemed to have breached this TruPayments Agreement, for any failure or delay in performing its obligations under this TruPayments Agreement, if and to the extent such failure or delay is caused by any circumstances beyond PureCars’ reasonable control, including but not limited to acts of God, flood, fire, earthquake, explosion, war, terrorism, invasion, riot or other civil unrest, strikes, labor stoppages or slowdowns or other industrial disturbances, or passage of law or any action taken by a governmental or public authority, including imposing an embargo, or any other circumstances beyond the PureCars’ control, whether or not similar in nature to those listed in this Section.

11.9 Equitable Relief. Each party acknowledges and agrees that a breach or threatened breach by such party of any of its obligations under Section 6 or, in the case of Customer, Section 2.2 or 2.3, would cause the other party irreparable harm for which monetary damages would not be an adequate remedy and agrees that, in the event of such breach or threatened breach, the other party will be entitled to equitable relief, including a restraining order, an injunction, specific performance and any other relief that may be available from any court, without any requirement to post a bond or other security, or to prove actual damages or that monetary damages are not an adequate remedy.
