Products sales & venue disclaimer
Although all of the suppliers THE E TREE works with are authorized distributors of the products they sell, and THE E TREE is authorized to act as a venue to supply said products, this does not indicate that all items are suitable for resale under any particular circumstance or venue.

It is also the member’s responsibility as a businessperson to ascertain the legal implications of selling items that may be prohibited, by law or otherwise, in certain regions or venues.
For anyone who plans to sell items through an online marketplace (or auction) site, it is recommended that you review the terms and conditions of the online marketplace, as well as check to be sure any product you hope to sell is not prohibited by the online marketplace.
Please note, some items which are prohibited are not necessarily against the law to sell but are simply items that a marketplace has decided to prohibit based on their own decision.
THE E TREE has no control over what is and isn’t legal in any online marketplace, venue or region and is not responsible for the sale of any product through our services.
