Using eBay Main Street

You accept eBay Main Street "as is" and voluntarily choose to participate in eBay Main Street Member Program Events including, without limitation, any eBay Main Street or events eBay may organise locally ("Events") at your own risk. The eBay Main Street Member Program is intended to keep you informed and help you take action on government regulations affecting your ability to trade on eBay.

eBay, its employees, affiliates, agents, and other third party partners ("eBay" or "we") may arrange for or publicize meetings at a variety of venues for the primary purpose of discussing policy issues and other subjects designed to increase awareness of issues impacting the eBay marketplace. eBay may or may not supervise these Events and may or may not be involved in any way with the actions of any individuals at these Events. As a result, eBay does not exercise any control over the identity or actions of the individuals who are present at these Events. All participants should exercise caution and good judgment when attending an Event.

Abusing eBay Main Street

We may limit or terminate your access to eBay Main Street and its Events and take technical or legal steps to keep individuals off eBay Main Street if we believe they may create problems or act inconsistently with the letter or spirit of our policies.

Personal Information

By using eBay Main Street, you agree to the collection, transfer, storage and use of your personal information by eBay Main Street on servers located in the United States, as further described in our Privacy & Cookie Notice.


We may or may not control, censor or supervise information or comments provided by participants at Events or communications between participants. You may find other users' comments offensive, harmful, inaccurate or deceptive; therefore, you will not hold eBay responsible for other users' actions or inactions, including any communication between you and other users. You indemnify and hold us (and our officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures, employees and partners) harmless from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.

If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code § 1542, which says: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor."

To the extent legally permitted we expressly disclaim all warranties, representations and conditions, express or implied, including those of quality, merchantability, merchantable quality, durability, fitness for a particular purpose and those arising by statutes. We are not liable for in contract or tort (including negligence) for any loss, whether of money (including profit), goodwill, reputation, or any special, indirect, or consequential damages arising out of your use of the Site, even if you advise us or we could reasonably foresee the possibility of any such damage occurring. Some jurisdictions do not allow the disclaimer of warranties or exclusion of damages so such disclaimers and exclusions may not apply to you.

Nothing in these Terms of Use shall limit or exclude our liability for fraudulent misrepresentation, for death or personal injury resulting from our negligence or the negligence of our agents or employees or for any other liability that cannot be limited or excluded by law.

Despite the previous paragraph, and to the extent permitted by the applicable regulation if we are found to be liable, our liability to you or any third party (whether in contract, tort, negligence, strict liability in tort, by statute or otherwise) is limited to: fifty US dollars ($50) for US residents, forty pounds (£40) for UK residents, forty-five euros (€45) for EU residents.
