Listing On Websites Powered By Krrb
Websites powered by our Service may editorially choose not to allow certain listings.

Fees and Credits
It is free to use Krrb, register for an account, and make a purchase from another User. Krrb charges a fee—in the form of Krrb Credits—for publishing and promoting listings. As a registered User, you may purchase credits or earn credits for free through certain website activity. Credits are non-transferable and have no monetary value. Credits expire (1) year after receipt. If you permanently delete your account, your credits—earned and purchased— will expire immediately.
Payment of Fees
You are responsible for paying all fees and applicable taxes associated with using Krrb. Unless otherwise stated, all fees are quoted in US Dollars (USD). If you choose to pay fees with another currency, you are responsible for all bank fees associated to the payment.
If there is a problem with your listing or if Krrb removes your listing for any reason, we will return the credit(s) used for that listing. Credit purchases are non-refundable.
Users who purchase credits are marked as "Certified" for (1) year from last purchase date. Certification of a User indicates that a good faith attempt was made by Krrb to verify the User’s identity. Certification does not prove the honesty or trustworthiness of a User. Krrb may, at its sole discretion, choose to temporarily or permanently remove a User's certification status.
Hosting and Data Storage
Your Krrb account is protected by a password for your privacy and security. Your password is securely stored and Krrb does not have access to it. You need to prevent unauthorized access to your account by selecting and protecting your password appropriately, and limiting access to your computer and browser by signing off after you have finished accessing your account. You are responsible for safeguarding the password that you use to access our Service and for any activities or actions under your password, whether or not you have authorized such use. You agree to notify Krrb immediately of any unauthorized use of your account.
Protection of User Information
Krrb strives to safeguard User information by using generally accepted industry standard means of protection to ensure that User information is kept private during transmission and storage. However, no method of storage or transmission over the Internet is ever 100% secure, therefore we cannot guarantee absolute security. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors, may compromise the security of User information at any time.
If you find a security vulnerability with Krrb, do not publicize it and avoid data deletion, unauthorized data access, and service disruption while testing the vulnerability you found. Contact us immediately at email@example.com and give us enough detail to reproduce the vulnerability.
Access and Interference
You may not do any of the following while accessing or using our Service:
- Access, tamper with, or use non-public areas of Krrb, our computer systems, or the technical delivery systems of our providers;
- Exploit a vulnerability of any system, network or breach;

For any dispute you have with Krrb, you agree to first contact us and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. If Krrb has not been able to resolve the dispute with you informally, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) arising out of or in connection with or relating to these Terms by binding arbitration by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") under the Commercial Arbitration Rules and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes then in effect for the AAA, except as provided herein. Unless you and Krrb agree otherwise, the arbitration will be conducted in New York City. Each party will be responsible for paying any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with AAA rules, except that upon your request, Krrb will pay for your reasonable filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees if your claim for damages does not exceed $75,000 and is non-frivolous (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)).
