Our aim is to make Splice Deals an efficient marketplace where buyers, sellers & renters can find great deals and opportunities in a safe secure user friendly environment.
We reserve the right to remove any content posted on our site at any time for any reason. “Splice Deals” will make decisions as to whether content violates any terms in its sole discretion after we have actual notice of such posting. We treat free members and premium members equally when dealing with terms violation. In order to keep our marketplace safe & flowing efficiently there are a few guidelines we have set forth for ad submission.
What are the rules?
You’re only allowed one account.
By default each account is allowed three (3) free ads. The intent is to allow each new user the opportunity to figure out if the platform is right for them.
If it is discovered you fraud the system by creating multiple accounts without prior written approval, all appropriate actions will be taken which may include but not limited to restricting account access & disable all subsequent ads. Some cases may require further legal action depending on the severity & occurrences.
All affected accounts are not be subjected to a refund for purchase made. Please take a look at our Refund Policy and Terms of Services
Post it once, absolutely no duplicates.
Duplicate ads can be very confusing to buyers and job seekers, it also hurt us in the eyes if search engines. To simplify the process we asked that each ad be posted only once. In the case your ad is pushed down to subsequent pages, please consider using the promotion feature provided for each ad.
Clean, clear and accurate photos please.
We’ll ask you to take down misleading images if they lie about what you’re selling. For example, posting a pictures of a vehicle, property or product you aren’t authorized to sell.
Clean concise titles.
In the effort of making our website simultaneously user friendly & search engine optimized we strictly prohibit ads with an ALL CAPS TITLE. You can however publish your ad with the first letter of each word being capitalized. We suggest only use ALL-CAPS where necessary in your ad description. All Titles on our website are prominently displayed with a different font weight & size which is very distinguishable.
You may not include your email address, phone number or website address in your ad titles, there are clearly defined fields for contact details.
No contact details in descriptions.
All ad types clearly display the appropriate contact fields in the submission forms. Please make all efforts to ensure the fields are correctly enter. That way we will be better able to protect your business and private information from malicious users.
No links to other websites in your ad.
There’s a dedicated field for website links when posting various ad types. Please don’t post links in the description fields or other fields that are dedicated to other ad details.
If you’ve sold it, take your ad down.
It can be frustrating to buyer contacting sellers or job listing agencies about ads that are no longer available, to make the platform overall more user friendly please remove all ads that are no longer available.
Select the most accurate details you can.
This will give you the best exposure and keep our site clean and tidy.
