3.42. If a User considers the feedback left by another User to be unfair or defamatory, it can request for it to be removed by us. PrePlayZone may consider, at its sole discretion, removing ratings and comments from the Marketplace if for example it contains obscene language or profanity, is abusive, is irrelevant or illogical or does not make sense, does not relate to the other User in a transaction, contains personal information, is unreasonable, relates to a review of a Product, relates to a complaint about the Product price or in any other way it is deemed by PrePlayZone to be inappropriate.
3.43. Sellers may not rate themselves or any item offered for sale by them on the Marketplace.

We reserve the right to suspend or terminate a User’s account immediately if we have reasonable grounds to believe that they have directly or via a third party manipulated or attempted to manipulate ratings.
Velocity and other Limitations

They are not the same thing as financial limits or credit limits set by card providers on credit cards.

Fulfilment, Dispatch and Delivery
4.38 PrePlayZone will through the Marketplace confirm each order placed to the Seller and the Buyer.
4.39 Sellers will then have up to one Business Day to accept the order and confirm it to the Buyer via the Marketplace, unless a longer delivery period is clearly stated in the Listing (as may be the case for example where a Product is to be customised to the Buyer’s requirements) or where a longer period is agreed between the Buyer and the Seller. Sellers must dispatch items within one Business Day of acceptance of the order unless next day delivery is requested and paid for by the Buyer. Sellers must use a shipment method that ensure delivery to the customer within 3 working days (for example Royal Mail 2nd Class). Where next day delivery applies the Seller must confirm or reject the order on the day of order placement (unless the order is placed after your stated cut-off in which case on the next day) and ship the item on the day of acceptance.
4.40 If an order is shipped and monies transferred but the item is not received by the Buyer then the Seller must resolve the situation promptly with the Buyer. If a refund is agreed then Seller will issue a refund to the Buyer and reverse of commission will be issued to seller (Only for tracked transactions). Where agreement is not reached between the Buyer and the Seller in accordance with the Fair Play Policy at section 5 PrePlayZone may issue a refund to the Buyer and Debit the Seller’s account.
4.41 Unless the Buyer and Seller expressly agree otherwise, the following terms and conditions will apply to the contract between the Buyer and Seller for the sale of the relevant item: (i) Seller shall make all postage and/or delivery charges visible to the Buyer at the time of ordering. (ii) Customs, import, export and excise duty, VAT and any other taxes associated with the sale (if applicable) will be included in the price shown in the Marketplace where the Buyer is located within the European Union.

(v) the contract between the Buyer and Seller will be governed by the laws of England and Wales and the parties irrevocably submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales. (vi) The Seller is solely responsible for, and bears all risk and liability for sourcing, storing, selling, fulfilling and delivering all orders placed with it by Buyers.
4.42 In the event that the Buyer’s payment has already been processed and: (i) you reject an order; (ii) the item is not dispatched by you for any reason; or (iii) the Buyer returns the item to you, seller will refund the purchase price to the Buyer and the status of the order will change to refunded.
