Without explicit permission granted by us via a separate written or electronic agreement, you agree not to (i) rent, lease, sell, publish, distribute, license, sublicense, assign, transfer, or otherwise make available EC Tunnel or our application programming interface ("API"), (ii) copy, adapt, create derivative works of, decompile, reverse engineer, translate, localize, port or modify the App, the API, any website code, or any software used to provide EC Tunnel, (iii) combine or integrate EC Tunnel or the API with any software, technology, services, or materials not approved by us, (iv) bypass any functionality that controls access to or otherwise safeguards EC Tunnel or the API, or (v) remove or alter any copyright, trademark or other proprietary rights notices.

  • ECTunnel will not be held responsible for any escrow transactions of any type where an item or account sold or traded is recalled after the completion of the transaction. You acknowledge that ECTunnel is not the owner of these items or accounts. If an item or account is recalled by a previous owner or is hacked, you acknowledge that ECTunnel is not responsible and will be unable to help recover the items or account.
  • For escrow services, you acknowledge that ECTunnel does not protect sellers from payment disputes or chargebacks. The buyer sends payment directly to the seller, so ECTunnel is not involved in the payment process and will not issue refunds or cover the lose of funds due to payment disputes or chargebacks.
  • Escrow providers are not employees of ECTunnel (RedGuides LLC). They are long term ECTunnel members who have been verified and have a strong history of positive feedback. For account sales or trades during an escrow provider service, you acknowledge that a provider will access the account being sold to secure it. The seller acknowledges that by using escrow, ECTunnel is not responsible for anything that happens to the account while a provider transaction is being conducted or after it's completed.
  • If the account is banned or suspended while an escrow provider has access to it, we will conduct an investigation to why it was banned or suspended. If it is determined the ban or suspension was caused directly by a provider accessing your account, it is up to the seller to recover and unban the account. ECTunnel will not provide any compensation for the account even if it can't be unbanned. You acknowledge that someone accessing an account one time, is not a significant violation. If the account is permanently banned due to this one-time access, you acknowledge the account has had many previous violations and is a high-risk account. Due to this high risk, ECTunnel is not held responsible and will not provide any compensation.
  • If a scam occurs during a provider transaction, while the provider has control of the account, ECTunnel will conduct an investigation. Based on this investigation the provider fee could be refunded and partial compensation could be paid out to the victim. The partial compensation is limited to a maximum of $100.

You agree that these amounts are (1) a reasonable estimate of our damages (as actual damages are often difficult to calculate), (2) not a penalty, and (3) not otherwise limiting on our ability to recover under any legal theory or claim, including statutory damages and other equitable relief (e.g., for spam, we can elect between the above liquidated damages or statutory damages under the anti-spam statute).
