IndiaTradeFair is not a curated marketplace. However, for a variety of reasons, we prohibit certain types of items from IndiaTradeFair. Some items present legal risks to our community; others are inconsistent with our values, are harmful to our members, or simply are not in the spirit of IndiaTradeFair. This policy explains what is prohibited or restricted on IndiaTradeFair.
We have a zero tolerance policy for prohibited items, particularly those that promote, support or glorify hatred, those that promote, support or glorify violence, or are unlawful. Sellers deemed to violate this policy can be subject to immediate account suspension or termination at IndiaTradeFair.
The following types of items are prohibited or restricted on IndiaTradeFair:
1. Alcohol, Tobacco, Drugs, Drug Paraphernalia, and Medical Drugs
2. Animal Products and Human Remains
3. Dangerous Items: Hazardous Materials, Recalled Items, and Weapons
4. Hate Items: Items that Promote, Support, or Glorify Hatred
5. Illegal Items, Items Promoting Illegal Activity, and Highly Regulated Items
6. Internationally Regulated Items
7. Pornography and Mature Content
8. Violent Items: Items that Promote, Support, or Glorify Violence
Policy decisions are complex. We consider many different and often divergent factors before coming to a decision about what is best for our community. Because we are a creative community, we are on the side of freedom of expression. We also tend to allow items that have educational, historical or artistic value, but we know that even those items are subject to a variety of valid and sometimes conflicting interpretations and emotional responses.
Art and history can be provocative, emotional and divisive. There are some topics on which we may never reach a consensus as a community, and that is okay.
When buying and selling internationally, you should comply with your local laws and be aware that other countries may have their own restrictions. You might be prohibited from exporting or importing certain items under international laws and regulations. Some transactions may require licences, permits, or other documentation. If you have questions about how to comply with the law, we recommend that you speak to a qualified professional.
When you use IndiaTradeFair’s services, you are also responsible for complying with economic sanctions and trade restrictions. All IndiaTradeFair members must comply with our terms and conditions, regardless of their location.
IndiaTradeFair reserves the right to request that sellers provide additional information, disclose an item’s country of origin in a listing, or take other steps to meet compliance obligations.
You should be aware that third-party payment processors, such as PayPal, may independently monitor transactions for sanctions compliance and may block some transactions as part of their own compliance programmes. IndiaTradeFair has no authority or control over the independent decision-making of these providers.
