Be wary of scammers and people attempting to defraud the community they may target Yaad Links users. Also, remember that Yaad Links does not verify in any way the information its users provide.
We therefore urge you to take the following precautions while using Yaad Links:
When buying and selling locally, you should meet in-person in a public place with many people around and thoroughly inspect the product before paying for it.
Instead of carrying cash consider paying for your item online using Paypal, a reputable company, which allows you to securely link your bank account, your credit cards or your Visa Debit; and to make quick and easy payments. Never mail a cheque or wire money to sellers.
Avoid services like Amazon Payments, Google Wallet, Android Pay, Canada Post, Western Union or MoneyGram. Scammers will use these services and will even falsify documents
Do not give out personal or banking information over the Internet (e.g. social insurance/ security number, bank account number).
Yaad Links does not offer any sort of protection programs or secure payment systems for products sold on Yaad Links. Therefore, any emails or web sites that talk about such systems are scams, even if they are accompanied by the Yaad Links logo. If you receive any emails promoting these services, please forward the message to email@example.com.
Where you have not made any request to change your password or email address, or confirm your account do not respond to emails asking for such information. These emails are very often phishing emails by scammers trying to gain access to your account. Any emails we send requiring you to log in will bring you directly to our site. Moreover, the Yaad Links sign-in page should always show up as being secure in your web browser.
Be aware of common scams.
Use common sense, and try to avoid too good to be true ‘deals’.
Inform Yaad Links of any attempted fraud or suspicious emails, ads, or other activity by Yaad Links users. In the case of fraud, file a police report and contact us as firstname.lastname@example.org.
Except as otherwise stated, any notices you wish to send must be sent in a written email to email@example.com. With respect to intellectual property violations including copyright, trade mark and geographical indications please send us an email with the subject heading “Intellectual Property Rights Infringement” giving the physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the intellectual property interest, your address, telephone number, and e-mail address; describing the intellectual property work or right that you claim has been infringed and where the infringing material is located on the Yaad Links site; and stating that you have a good-faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the intellectual property rights owner, its agents, or the law; and declaring, subject to the penalty of perjury that the information in your notice is accurate and that you are the intellectual property right owner or authorized to act on the intellectual property right owner’s behalf.
Note, however, that the fact that we record your complaints and do investigations upon obtaining your complaints does not mean that we accept liability in connection to the complaints, whether or not the investigations were improper, incomplete or not thorough; and could have lessened the damages incurred.
Additionally, you should email us if you have any questions about this User Agreement or any other Yaad Links policies.
Any notices to which we wish to draw your attention we will display on the Yaad Links website.
When you use any Yaad Links Service, or send e-mails, text messages, and other communications from your desktop or mobile device to us, you are communicating with us electronically.

Consideration should always be given to the nature of Internet transactions and the risks involved. You may never meet or speak to the other party to the transaction and, as a result, you must proceed with care and judgment when using our Yaad Links Services.
You agree fully to waive any claim you may have against us and indemnify, defend and hold us, and our officers, directors, employees, agents and suppliers, harmless immediately on demand, from and against all claims, liability, damages, losses, breaches, costs and expenses, including reasonable legal fees, arising out of any content or material uploaded or transmitted by you through Yaad Links (including comments, photos, product reviews, endorsements, opinions, testimonials) or any non-compliance with or breach of the terms of this disclaimer by you or any other liabilities arising out of your use of Yaad Links or the use by any other person accessing the Yaad Links using your shopping account and/or your personal data and information.
However, we reserve the right, at our own expense, to assume the exclusive defence and control of any matter which is subject to indemnification by you; but doing so will not excuse your indemnity obligations.
This waiver and indemnity shall not apply in the event of any fraud or willful misconduct by us.
Where you breach or induce others to breach this User Agreement and/or other Yaad Links policies you must pay us as a reasonable estimate of our damages in United States currency, for items of loss which are hard to calculate as follows: : $0.10 per server request, $1.00 per post, email, flag or account created, $1 per item of personal and contact information collected, and $1000.00 per software distribution, capped at $25,000.00 per day.

You also agree to only bring claims on an individual basis and not to bring or take part in a class action or representative suit against us, unless otherwise agreed.
Further, if we don’t enforce any particular provision, we are not waiving out right to do so later.
If any part of the terms of this User Agreement is unenforceable (including any provision in which we exclude our liability to you) the enforceability of any other part of these conditions will not be affected.
