These Terms and Conditions (hereinafter, referred to as the “Terms”) for the website www.waste-outlet.com (hereinafter, referred to as the “Website”) constitute a legal agreement between the user (“you”, “your”, “user”) of the Website and Waste-Outlet I/S having a principal place of business at Haderslevvej 1, 6200 Aabenraa, Denmark (hereinafter, referred to as “Waste-Outlet”, “us”, “we”, and “our”).
Waste-Outlet is solely a marketplace
1.1 The Website exists as an online auction site for the purpose of facilitating buyers and sellers transactions in regard to exchanging recycled materials. For registered sellers on the Website, materials can be listed for sale as auction postings. For registered buyers on the Website, bids can be placed on the auction postings. Both buyers and sellers are able to communicate with one another concerning the materials that are listed for sale, but all communication may be monitored by us. We do not at any time hold or have in possession any of the waste material that is listed for sale on the auction Website. We do not verify the auction postings for accuracy and do not check the legality or veracity of the seller’s postings, nor the buyer’s capability of completing the transaction. Because of these factors, we are unable to ascertain the safety or quality of the items posted for sale, or whether the transaction is legal or valid. All buyers and sellers are responsible for their own due diligence when completing a transaction during/after an auction on the Website. We are neither responsible for, nor involved in, the completion of said transactions.

If you are unsure of the categorization of your waste material in this regard, it is in your best interest to familiarize yourself with the applicable laws and to consult the relevant environmental agencies. It is not the responsibility of Waste-Outlet to make any determinations in regard to the listing of hazardous, or potentially hazardous materials or substances or the legality of such, nor is Waste-Outlet responsible for the legality of the selling, transportation, storage, disposal or any treatment of such.

Fees and Listing Terms
All sellers must agree to the following listing terms and imposed fees:
a) It is free to create an auction listing on the Website. At auction end, assuming the listing’s minimum price was reached during the auction, a non-refundable fee equal to 2% of the total price of the trade (or a minimum of 26.99 Euro / 29.99 USD) will apply to receive the bidders list. After the seller pays the fee mentioned in the preceding sentence, the information about all bidders will become visible on seller’s online dashboard, at which time the seller can make decision about who (if any) will be the winning bidder. Please note that the fee invoice and other communications will be sent by email, as well as being available on the seller’s online dashboard.
b) Please note, you will be unable to edit an auction listing after it has been published to the Website. Please contact Waste-Outlet if you need to make changes to your listing after publication and we will assist you in the matter.
c) As a seller, you are in control of who you do or do not sell your waste materials to, regardless of the “high bidder” of the auction. You reserve the right to sell to whichever bidder you choose or none at all. You are not obligated to accept any bid and do not have to sell at auction end if none of the bidders are satisfactory to you.
d) Price manipulation is not allowed and will not be tolerated. This includes a seller’s use of other accounts on the Website to bid on their own listing, collaborating with third parties to drive up the price of the seller’s listing, using an alias, either indirectly or directly, to bid on one’s own listing, or any other method used towards this end. If you engage in any price manipulation on the Website, Waste-Outlet reserves the right to remove all your listings, remove your account from the Website, refuse to reinstate your account, and take legal action if necessary.
e) As a seller, you are obligated to pay all fees due Waste-Outlet for auction listings as outlined above. If you attempt to avoid or eliminate fees or potential fees by contacting a bidder/buyer outside the parameters of the Website or bypassing the Website to complete any transaction, you will be in violation of the Terms and Waste-Outlet reserves the right to legal recourse. Under certain circumstances, sellers and buyers may agree to share necessary contact information for the purpose of providing a sample of the materials. This type of communication is still subject to the restrictions in these Terms and may not be used to violate the agreement with Waste-Outlet.
f) The Website operates with the following currencies: EUR, USD and DKK. h) We will not charge you fees to which you have not agreed.
Seller must warrant the materials in any auction listing on Waste-Outlet. This includes that the seller is in fact legally the owner of any materials put up for auction, that the seller has all proper permissions to offer said material for sale, that the seller has authority to make said auction listing and to agree to the terms included, that the seller is in no way violating the Terms of any previous contract to which the seller is a party by agreeing to the Terms, that the materials being listed for auction has no liens or encumbrances of any kind, and that there are no known environmental issues associated with the listed materials in regards to claims, notices, demands, suits or other damages, nor are there threats of damage from any entity, personal or governmental in this respect.
Bids and Buyers
7.1 All bids on the Website are subject to the Terms, including the information included in the sections pertaining to the listing terms outlined elsewhere in the terms and conditions. All bidders and buyers of any auctions on the Website must be aware that bids do not include any applicable taxes, customs duties, preparation or rigging expenses, shipping or transportation costs, export or import fees, registration or transaction fees, insurance or escrow fees, or other potential costs related to the purchase of the materials listed in the auction listing, unless it is categorically stated otherwise. All extra-related costs of this nature are the full responsibility of the bidder/buyer, unless specifically otherwise agreed.
7.2 At auction end, seller will be able to buy the bidders list. In this case Waste-Outlet will provide all bidders information to the seller, at which time seller can select a winning bidder. Keep in mind, the winning bidder can be any bidder and may not always be the highest bidder. The seller is under no obligation to select any bidder and can choose to not sell the materials listed, even after the auction has ended. You will be notified if you are a chosen bidder.
7.3 For the purposes of these Terms, a bidder who has been chosen as the winner of the auction on the Website is referred to as a buyer. If a buyer or a seller has indicated the desire for the Escrow Service in regards to an auction’s transaction, the buyer will receive an email notification with request for Escrow payment and if it is the first time using the Escrow payment system, buyer will be asked to signup for an Escrow account.
7.4 All materials listed and sold through Waste-Outlet are to be considered as “Sold As Is, Where Is, With All Faults” and in regard to Waste-Outlet are without guarantee or warranty, either implied, stated, or written, including, without limitation, any guarantee and warranties related to the performance of the material(s), as well as their condition and grade. Waste-Outlet is not to be held responsible for any faults, shortages, inaccuracies, or misrepresentations of any materials listed on the Website or any transaction thereof. All buyers on this Website agree to hold Waste-Outlet harmless in regards to any errors or deficiencies of any transactions resulting from the use of the Website and release any claim on Waste-Outlet in these matters.
Payment and Escrow service
8.1 Once a seller has selected the winning bidder of an auction, it is time to finalize the transaction. This can be done either with the buyer and seller agreeing to handle payment amongst themselves outside of the Website, or if requested by either party, by handling the payment through the use of Waste-Outlet’s third-party Transpact.com Escrow Service. The Escrow Service exists to provide better security for both buyer and seller. The Escrow service ensures the buyer gets exactly what they ordered or their money back and ensures that sellers receive all the money from their sale with interest.
8.2 If buyer or seller choose to use the Escrow Service, then the buyer will be invoiced by the Escrow Service for the full payment (If the waste material has negative value, the seller will be invoiced the full payment). The buyer will then have to send the funds via wire transfer into the escrow account. In this case, the funds will be held by the Escrow Service, of which Transpact.com is the agent, and will be held and tracked in a separate escrow fund account designed specifically for said transaction. Please note that Transpact.com is not liable for, nor in control of, the materials of the listed auction for which they are holding the transaction funds in escrow.
8.3 In regard to the the duties of the Escrow Service provided by Transpact.com, both buyer and seller agree to the following:
a) Transpact.com is not responsible for the integrity of or accuracy of the identity of either the buyer or the seller or their commitment to the finalization of any transaction. Transpact.com cannot guarantee the completion of the transaction and is not responsible for the actions or inactions of either the buyer or the seller. Transpact.com Escrow service is merely a third-party holder of the transaction’s funds and has no say in the actual transference of materials from one party to the other.
b) The Escrow service only costs a flat fee of €6.98 (for amounts less €15.000) or $34.98 (for amounts less $2.500) and is always paid by the one – seller or buyer, that choses to activates the Escrow service. If you transact in Euros and you do not have an EU based bank account, then see additional charges for more information. US Dollar transactions are not subject to these surcharges (they already include the fee).
c) The Escrow Service will assume that any communication (written by mail or email and signed electronically or otherwise) believed to be genuinely received from either party to the transaction is in fact not a forgery or a fraud, and will treat such correspondence as reliable. Any such communication that is received that is not believed to be genuine will be disregarded or questioned.
d) Waste-Outlet is not responsible for any dispute resolution between buyer and seller and does not provide assistance in these matters.
e) In regards to any dispute between a buyer and a seller in regards to the final transaction affecting the movement of any escrow funds, the Escrow Service is obliged to withhold the release of said funds until such a time that both the buyer and seller submit a joint statement with instructions concerning said funds. If such a statement is not able to be submitted, the Escrow Service will retain the funds in escrow until it receives instructions from a court (decree, order, or judgment) that has proper jurisdiction to determine the rights of the involved parties. If necessary, the Escrow Service will institute a bill of interpleader to provide the needed documentation. However, if the buyer and seller agree to binding arbitration to resolve their conflict, then Escrow Service will agree to accept the arbitrator’s instructions in regard to the release of the funds held in the escrow account. Waste-Outlet uses refereeltd.com as arbitrator.
f) When it has been determined that the transaction between buyer and seller has been completed and both parties have agreed as such, the Escrow funds will be released to the seller. The escrow funds that are released are considered the “net proceeds” and is the total price that was paid by the buyer minus any service fees, applicable taxes, or other expenses.
Waste-Outlet is not responsible for the determination of potentially applicable taxes, such as use or sales tax, VAT or GST, transfer tax, ad valorem or any other such similar taxes. It is the obligation of the seller and/or buyer to know and which taxes they are subject to. It is the buyer’s and seller’s responsibilities to report, collect and/or remit any taxes that are applicable due to any transaction that they are party to. It is not Waste-Outlet’s obligation to be aware of, nor to participate in any collection or remittance of any kind of tax, regardless of the tax authority from which it arises.
Commission payments for Danish customers will be added Danish VAT of 25%.
