MidTrade Terms of Use
Our Terms of Use
Hey there MidTrade users. We built MidTrade.net based on safety and convenience for college students. To ensure we maintain that safety and convenience, we ask that you agree to these Terms of Use when you access our content, website, or servers. If you do not agree with them, please do not use MidTrade!

If you are a college student with a valid school email address, we grant you a limited, revocable, nonexclusive nonassignable, non-sublicensable license to access MidTrade in compliance with the Terms of Use; unlicensed access is unauthorized.

MidTrade reserves all of its copyright and other intellectual property entitlements and protections in relation to this website and the materials contained therein. Without limitation to the above, none of the materials on this website may be reproduced in any form for any purpose without the express written consent of MidTrade.

Summary: You’re allowed to use MidTrade, but you can’t copy our stuff.

MidTrade is a college trading post that allows college students to buy, sell, and trade almost anything within any college or university in the United States. The actual contract for sale is directly between the seller and the buyer. The pricing and description of individual items is displayed by MidTrade.net, but that information is solely information and is inputted by users who post items. MidTrade has no control over and does not guarantee the existence, quality, safety, or legality of items advertised; the truth or accuracy of users’ content or listings; the ability of sellers to sell items; the ability of buyers to pay for items; or that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction or return an item.

MidTrade may moderate MidTrade access and use in our sole discretion, such as blocking, filtering, deletion, delay, omission, verification, and/or access/account/license termination.

MidTrade is not directly associated with any college or university. The logos and names used on the site are subject to their own copyright laws and protections.

Summary: We connect you and your college friends to buy, sell, and trade with each other. You two are responsible for the transaction, not us. We can filter any inappropriate things you post. Also, we’re a strong independent website who don’t need no school.

In connection with or using MidTrade’s services, users shall not:

  • post, list, or upload content or inappropriate items;
  • breach or circumvent any laws, third-party rights or our systems, policies, or determinations of your account status;
  • use our services if you are not an active college student at a university at which MidTrade is offered;
  • use our services if you are not able to form a legally binding contract, or are temporarily or indefinitely suspended from using our sites, services, applications, or tools;
  • fail to pay for items you purchase;
  • post false, inaccurate, misleading, defamatory, or libelous content;
  • take any action that may undermine any feedback or ratings systems;
  • transfer your MidTrade account information to another party without consent of MidTrade;
  • distribute or post spam, unsolicited or bulk electronic communications, chain letters, or pyramid schemes;
  • distribute viruses or any other technologies that may harm MidTrade, or the interests or property of users;
  • use any robot, spider, scraper, or other automated means to access our services for any purpose;
  • harvest or otherwise collect information about users without their consent;
  • circumvent any technical measures used to provide MidTrade’s services.

MidTrade at all times may, in our sole discretion and without limiting other remedies, limit, suspend, or terminate user accounts, delay, or remove hosted content. We may also cancel or delete inactive accounts.

If you attend a service academy, you are subject to the rules and regulations put forth by that service academy regarding the exchange of money and goods. You are also not permitted to take part in any monthly promotional giveaways MidTrade offers.

Summary: Don’t do anything dumb on MidTrade. We’ll take it down and you can get in trouble. And we’re not talking sitting in timeout in the corner. Service academy users, follow the rules of your school; and you aren’t eligible to participate in our monthly promotions. Sorry!

By posting an item, you agree to the following:

  • You are responsible for the accuracy and content of the listing and item offered;
  • content that violates any MidTrade policies may be deleted at MidTrade’s discretion;
  • MidTrade is not responsible for the legal transfer of ownership of items;
  • use our services if you are not able to form a legally binding contract, or are temporarily or indefinitely suspended from using our sites, services, applications, or tools;
  • URL links included in a post may be removed so as to not affect third-party search engine results.

Summary: Use good judgment with what you sell.

If buying an item, you agree to the following:

  • You must read the full item listing before committing to a purchase or transaction;
  • when you commit to purchase an item, you enter a legally binding contract;
  • MidTrade is not responsible for the transfer of legal ownership of items from the seller to the buyer.

Summary: Know what you're buying before buying it, and don't back out of a deal unless you really need to.
