We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason at any time.
You agree not to reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, resell or exploit any portion of the Service, use of the Service, or access to the Service or any contact on the website through which the service is provided, without express written permission by us.
The headings used in this agreement are included for convenience only and will not limit or otherwise affect these Terms.
Internet Service is an Internet-based public marketplace for users in order to find, buy and sell heavy vehicles, industrial supplies and machinery, etc. The Internet Service presents an up to date selection of used vehicles and machinery from leading manufacturers and retailers. It is also possible for private sellers to place ads. Internet Service brings together buyers and sellers.
The purpose of the Internet Service is to publish advertisements of used vehicles and machinery on the Internet. Sales agreement regarding a used vehicle or a used machine offered for sale on the Internet Service (“Object”) is always drawn up and entered into between the seller and the buyer directly. CET is in no way involved in the transaction or the purchase contract. All details of the Object are provided by the seller. CET is not responsible for the information presented in the advertisement on the Internet Service.
The purpose of the advertisements published on the Internet Service is solely to inform. Although CET wishes that sellers who use the Internet Service are careful and act in good faith, CET cannot guarantee that the data supplied by sellers is free from errors. Before purchasing an Object that is advertised for sale on the Internet Service, the buyer is obliged to check with the seller all the details that may affect the buyer’s purchase decision. When buying a used item through Internet Service, the buyer should be as careful as if buying a similar item via an ad in a newspaper or otherwise.
If you decide to purchase a used vehicle or machine, to use financing or transportation service or any other product on the basis of data published in the Internet Service, your contracting partner is the seller of the product and not CET.
The selection and design of the Internet Service is constantly evolving and therefore CET reserves the right to change the conditions of its services. The amendments will become effective after log in or within 30 days after publishing of the amendments on the Internet Service. If you continue to use the Internet Service after the terms have been changed, you acknowledge that the new terms are binding on you even if you have registered as user prior to the new terms came into force.
If you want to register as a user on CET Internet Service, enter the user data requested and agree to comply with the terms and conditions which have been provided to you before registering as a user (through the hyperlink). CET stores the information you provided, which means you do not need to enter them again when you use the Internet Service the next time. Anyone who registers as a user of the service should be of minimum age of 18 years old.
By accepting the terms of the Internet Service, you certify that the information you have provided is correct and agree to without delay notify CET by e-mail if your details change. CET reserves the right to refuse registration without giving any reason. CET may terminate your user rights if the information provided is insufficient or incorrect or if you have neglected to notify changes. CET can also deny you the right to use the Internet Service and cancel your account if you act against the terms and conditions. CET has also at its disposal the means of legal protection which the law determines.
To use the Internet Service, you need a username and password that must be kept safe from access for unauthorized persons. As a user of the Internet Service, you must immediately notify CET by e-mail if a third party has gained access to your user name or password. Until the message is received, you are responsible for the use of the Internet Service with your username and password, although the use would be unauthorized by you.
EARLY TERMINATION –
Notwithstanding what is otherwise prescribed, either party may by notice cancel the agreement with immediate effect if:
a) Either party fundamentally breaches its responsibilities under this agreement and fails to remedy within 30 days after written request.
b) Either party suspends payments, offers instalment, goes bankrupt, becomes subject to seizure or other similar circumstance occurs that could reasonably be regarded as evidence of insolvency or liquidation.
3. ACCURACY, COMPLETENESS AND TIMELINESS OF INFORMATION –
We are not responsible if information made available on this site is not accurate, complete or current. The material on this site is provided for general information only and should not be relied upon or used as the sole basis for making decisions without consulting primary, more accurate, more complete or more timely sources of information. Any reliance on the material on this site is at your own risk.
You agree that it is your responsibility to monitor changes to our website.
PUBLISHING AN AD –
An ad that you post or send to CET is interpreted as a request to have the advertisement published on the Internet Service. It is the seller’s responsibility to specify in which category of the site each advertisement must be published; on CET’s website listings (seller’s own used machines listing on its own website) and/or the seller’s own intranet/extranet service.
The user of the Internet Service is responsible for making sure that it has acquired necessary rights and permissions to the content produced by it to the Internet Service. The content produced by it should not infringe any intellectual property rights or other rights of any other person or entity and should not contain statements or material the publication of which may give rise to liability to damages or liability for CET. The user of the Internet Service shall fully compensate any and all damage to CET if the content does not comply with this provision.
If an advertisement for some reason is not suitable for publication, CET will contact the seller via email. CET reserves the right to remove the content immediately without further notice to the seller and to terminate the usage rights of a seller or buyer that, according to CET assessment, is using the Internet Service improperly or in a way contrary to good manners. The preconditions for publication of each advertisement are assessed separately.
An advertisement may only apply to one Object (used vehicle or a used machine).
It is the seller´s responsibility to ensure that the advertisement contains the correct product data that provides sufficient information about the Object, its condition and other factors that are important in view of a buyer in compliance with laws, government regulations and good merchant manners. You agree to comply with the information on price and warranty and other information you provide in your ad.
It is your responsibility to notify CET if the advertised Object has been sold, so your ad can be removed.
CET has the right to edit, classify, and copy all or part of the material you have entered into the Internet Service and use it freely in its business.
CET is not able to check whether the information supplied by the users is correct. Therefore, the informant is fully liable for any costs and damages incurred due to incorrect information given to CET. It is possible to suspend the publication of an advertisement at any time. Advertisement fee will not be charged if the advertisement is cancelled before it is published.
Due to CET intervals to index data and safety measures, the contents of paid advertisements are not immediately visible on the CET Internet Service. Indexing intervals can vary depending on server load. Ads from CET customers are usually visible on the Internet within 24 hours. To ensure the safety of our customers and visitors, private advertisements are checked for fraudulent, deceptive or unlawful content. This check can take up to 72 hours until the advertisements are visible on the CET Internet Service.
CET is required to return the advertisement fee if CET fails to publish an approved advertisement. The compensation for an unpublished advertisement is limited in all cases to the paid advertisement fee. Advertisement fee does not need to be returned if the advertisement has not been published because of factors beyond CET control or for reasons which CET could not reasonably foresee or prevent.
ADVERTISING VEHICLES, MACHINERY AND EQUIPMENT –
CET wants to emphasize to the user that the data on the used vehicles and machines on the Internet Service comes from the sellers. The data on the Object´s estimated condition is based on a subjective assessment by the seller, and is the seller’s own perception of the Object’s condition.
The data on the used vehicle’s/machine´s condition is thus not based on an evaluation conducted by an independent and neutral observer. CET is not responsible for the correctness of such information.
4. SERVICE AND PRICES –
Prices for our services are subject to change without notice.
We reserve the right at any time to modify or discontinue the Service (or any part or content thereof) without notice at any time.

The publication of individual ads on Internet Service is a chargeable service. The fees charged for the published advertisements are set according to the current price list.
