You agree that You shall not resell, exchange, transfer or distribute our Leads or any information contained in the Lead (e.g. name, email and/or phone number) to any other person or entity except within your trading assistant organization.

You agree to use the private information contained in a Lead only to inquire whether the person or business who submitted the Leads would like to utilize your eBay trading assistant service.  Unless the person or business who submitted the Lead agrees to use your service You agree not to email or call the Lead after 30 days of receiving the Lead.

Replacements shall not be provided for Leads where Sellers have elected not to use your trading assistant service. You hereby agree to notify us via email of any Leads that You believe should be replaced within fifteen (15) days of receiving the Lead.  Your application for replacement shall specify the invalidation criteria. Following our confirmation of any invalid Leads, We shall provide You with a replacement Lead.

We reserve the right to monitor, validate, either electronically or by physical contact to the consumer, your disputes and return to determine their validity. We reserve the right to verify your dispute rational and in our sole discretion, determine if your dispute is valid.

Payment: Lead Generator will invoice Lead Buyer periodically.  Lead Buyer agrees to pay invoice in-full within five business days of receiving it. Accounts with overdue invoices will be immediately deactivated. The fee to reactivate an account is $25. All invoices shall be paid in U.S. Dollars or in such other currency as agreed to in writing by the parties.

Payments shall be made to Lead Generator's Pay Pal account.   The Pay Pal account name is: MarketingPayment@gmail.com

Late payments bear interest at the rate of 1.5% per month (or the highest rate permitted by law, if less).  You are responsible for paying all taxes, government charges, and reasonable expenses and attorneys fees We incurs collecting late amounts.  If a late payment has occurred Lead Generator reserves the right to ask Lead Buyer for a prepayment of expected charges for Leads delivered during a 15 day period.

Business Licenses: By applying to the Program Lead Buyer warrants having all required business licenses and permits to service Leads and perform trading assistant services.

State and Federal Do Not Call Laws: Despite our efforts to ensure our Leads are within Do-Not-Call legal guidelines, We cannot legally stand in your place and absolve You from your responsibility to be in compliance with the law. State and federal Do-Not-Call registries exist to prevent unsolicited telemarketing calls, not calls from persons who have asked to be contacted. Under Federal rules (and most all states), "
safe harbors"
 exist to allow a individual or a business to expressly grant permission to be contacted even though they have registered their phone number with a state or federal Do-Not-Call registry. An individual or business submitting a Lead via the internet to SellingRequest.com is granting permission to be contacted and under safe harbor rules they may be contacted up to 90 days after they submitted the permissive contact request. We, along with those affiliates contracted with us, take extraordinary steps to ensure the individual or business knows and understands that by submitting their request to be contacted by an eBay trading assistant they are granting express permission to be contacted by one trading assistant signed up with us, even if they are registered on a Do-Not-Call registry. Finally We record the date, time for all Leads received by us and can make such data available to You should You need to show when and from where permission to be contacted occurred. NEVERTHELESS, and despite our extraordinary efforts, current law holds You, the caller (telemarketer) responsible to comply with the Do-Not-Call rules. THEREFORE, if You are unsure about your exposure to fines under the Do-Not-Call laws, We recommend that You work with your independent counsel to develop and implement a compliance plan for your business.
