Introduction: CHOONE (Persian: "چــونــه") is World's First and Largest Persian (Farsi) Language Website for Free Local Community Classifieds. CHOONE means "Bargaining" or "Negotiation" in Persian. The website was officially launched in March 21, 2008 and is one of Iran’s fast growing network of free on-line classifieds and community sites.
Using CHOONE: You will post in the appropriate category or area and will not do any of the following bad things:
Abusing CHOONE: Please use the flagging system to tell us about any problems or offensive content so that together we can keep the site working properly. We may limit or terminate our service, remove hosted content and take technical and legal steps to keep users off CHOONE if we think that they are creating problems or acting inconsistently with the letter or spirit of our policies. However, whether we decide to take any of these steps, remove hosted content or keep a user off CHOONE or not, we do not accept any liability for monitoring CHOONE or for unauthorized or unlawful content on CHOONE or use of CHOONE by users.
Fees and Services: Using CHOONE is completely free. This includes posting an Ad, replying to an Ad, posting in the forums, etc. We may charge fees for premium services such as featuring your Ad in the Top Ads section. Our fees are quoted in IRR Toman (1 Toman = 10 Rial), and we may change them from time to time. Our fees are non-refundable, and you are responsible for paying them when they're due. If you don't, we may limit your ability to use the services. If your payment method fails or your account is past due, we may collect fees owed using other collection mechanisms (for accounts over 180 days past due, we may deduct the amount owed from your PayPal, Credit Card or other Bank or Financial Accounts).
Content: CHOONE contains stuff from us, you, and other users. You agree not to copy, modify, or distribute CHOONE, our copyrights or trademarks. When you give us content, you are granting us a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, sub-licensable right to exercise the copyright, publicity, and database rights to that content. (We need these rights to host and display your content.) If you believe that your rights have been violated, please notify our designated copyright agent at CHOONE Customer Support and we will investigate the matter. We reserve the right to remove content where we have grounds for suspecting the violation of these terms or of any party’s rights.
Liability: You agree not to hold us responsible for things other users post or do. As most of the stuff on CHOONE comes from other users, we do not guarantee the accuracy of postings or user communications or the quality, safety, or legality of what’s offered. We also cannot guarantee continuous or secure access to our services. Accordingly, 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 statute. We are not liable for any loss, whether of money (including profit), goodwill, or reputation, or any special, indirect, or consequential damages arising out of your use of CHOONE, 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.
Despite the previous paragraph, 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 the greater of (a) the total fees you pay to us in the 12 months prior to the action giving rise to liability, and (b) 100 Euros converted to IRR.
General: These terms and the other policies posted on CHOONE constitute the entire agreement between CHOONE and you, superseding any prior agreements. This agreement is governed by the laws of Iran. If we don't enforce any particular provision, we are not waiving our right to do so later. If a court strikes down any of these terms, the remaining terms will survive. We may automatically assign this agreement in our sole discretion in accordance with the notice provision below. Except for notices relating to illegal or infringing content, your notices to us must be sent by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
We will send notices to you via the email address you provide, or by registered mail. Notices sent by registered mail will be deemed received five days following the date of mailing. We may update this agreement at any time, with updates taking effect when you next post or after 30 days, whichever is sooner. No other amendment to this agreement will be effective unless made in writing, signed by users and by us. Send questions, comments or complaints to CHOONE Customer Support.
Prohibited Activities: The following activities are prohibited from CHOONE.
Our general rule is that you may not list, rent, buy or sell items or services that are illegal to own, rent, buy or sell in your Province of residence, or that are not bought or sold in compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
Any ads or users that do not comply with our terms and policies will be banned and removed from the site.
IMPORTANT: YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ENSURING COMPLIANCE WITH ALL APPLICABLE LAWS RELATING TO THE ITEM/PROPERTY YOU LIST, RENT, BUY OR SELL ON THIS SITE.
We specifically prohibit the following items:
The following types of Pet ads are prohibited on the site:
The following types of Job ads are prohibited on the site:
The following types of items are generally permitted to be listed if and to the extent that their sale and purchase is legally permitted in your Province of residence, and that such sales and purchases occur in compliance with applicable laws and regulations:
Other Posting Policies:
You can post up to 25 different ads per day on CHOONE. Duplicate ads or ads that are too similar to an existing Ad that you have posted can be posted in two (2) different categories per site within your province. Any more than two and your ads will be removed. We also ask that you not post outside the province you are located in. If you violate these policies your ads will be deleted (sometimes without notice). Attempting to post after having your ads removed may result in a "blocked" message notifying you that you have posted too many ads. To avoid this, please list whatever you are advertising only once per site within your province. If you want to re-list an item that you are already advertising on the site, delete your existing Ad first.
Posting a listing with a link to another web site for the sole purpose of directing visitors to that web site is not permitted. You may, however, include a link in your post if it is to give the user more information about the item being offered (for example product details, pictures, etc.)
You are not permitted to defame anyone or include "hate speech" directed at individuals or groups in your postings. CHOONE reserves the right to delete any Ads from the site that are deemed to negatively impact the community. If you encounter any such Ads, please flag it as such or contact us at email@example.com
CHOONE Safety Tips:
While most individuals who use CHOONE have success with buying, selling, renting or connecting with others, from time to time we do get reports of people attempting to scam or defraud our users. We have found that one of the best ways to address this problem is toensure that all transactions take place locally and in-person. Remember that CHOONE is a local classifieds web site and ads are not reviewed before they go live on the site.
