Prohibited Items Policy
Atawall is not a curated marketplace. However, for a variety of reasons, we prohibit certain types of items from Atawall. 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 Atawall. This policy explains what is prohibited or restricted on Atawall.
The following types of items are prohibited or restricted on Atawall:
We reserve the right to remove listings that we determine are not within the spirit of Atawall. Violating this policy may result in the member's selling privileges being suspended and/or terminated.
1. Alcohol, Tobacco, Drugs, Drug Paraphernalia, and Medical Drugs
Alcohol and drugs are prohibited on Atawall. These substances face serious legal restrictions and in many cases are considered controlled substances under applicable law. Our policy also applies to other substances that have or are claimed to have an intoxicating or healing effect.
The following are examples of items that may not be sold on Atawall:
Restrictions on descriptions of purported health benefits:
A medical drug claim is a statement or suggestion that an item prevents, heals, or treats a medical condition or disease. Medical drug claims are subject to varying degrees of regulation. If you make claims about the purported health benefits of an item for sale on Atawall, we urge you to speak with a qualified expert about which regulations apply to you. It is your responsibility to know and comply with all laws and regulations that apply to the items you sell.
Atawall prohibits certain medical drug claims based on our values, such as claims likely to deceive or pose an unreasonable risk to our community. Atawall may remove claims that we deem to be inappropriate, excessive, or otherwise unsuitable for our marketplace. We also remove content that promotes prohibited medical claims, such as anti-vaccine items. If Atawall receives proper notice from a legal authority, we may remove an item.
2. Animal Products and Human Remains
Certain animal products are highly regulated and prohibited on Atawall due to the risk of harm to live, companion, or endangered animals.
The following are examples of animal products that may not be sold on Atawall:
3. Dangerous Items: Hazardous Materials, Recalled Items, and Weapons
For safety and legal reasons, we prohibit certain dangerous items from our marketplace.
Due to the potential harm caused by hazardous materials, as well as complex legal and shipping regulations surrounding such materials, hazardous materials are prohibited on Atawall.
While not exhaustive, the following materials are examples of prohibited hazardous materials:
Recalled Items or Items that May Pose a Health or Safety Hazard
Items that have been recalled by governments or manufacturers are prohibited from being sold on Atawall. A few examples of items that have been recalled are certain vintage Corning Ware percolators, lawn darts, and drop side cribs.
Items that may pose a health or safety hazard are prohibited, even if they have not been the subject of a recall. This would include, for example, items that present a choking, electrocution, or strangulation hazard. We rely on information from user reports and various government agencies to identify these items.
Context matters when it comes to defining what is or is not a weapon. When in doubt, it’s safe to assume that we won’t allow any item intended to be used as a weapon to inflict harm. The following items are generally not allowed on Atawall:
4. Hate Items: Items that Promote, Support, or Glorify Hatred
We want Atawall to be a community where people of all backgrounds, nationalities, religions, political affiliations, and even different types of artistic taste and humor feel welcome. Art is incredibly subjective, and what is offensive to one is not necessarily offensive to others.
Atawall does not allow items or listings that promote, support or glorify hatred toward people or otherwise demean people based upon: race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, gender identity, disability, or sexual orientation (collectively, “protected groups”). We also prohibit items or content that promote organizations or people with such views.
5. Illegal Items, Items Promoting Illegal Activity, and Highly Regulated Items
We respect the law and expect Atawall sellers to respect the law as well.
Illegal items, items that promote illegal activity, and stolen items are not allowed on Atawall. Neither are certain items that are subject to complex legal regulations or registration systems. We require sellers to follow all applicable laws for the items they list. Listings may be unavailable for users in regions where the item is restricted to purchase or sell.
Because Atawall is a global company, it’s important to abide by the laws of the markets in which you are selling. What is legal in one country may be illegal in another. All forms of illegal activity are strictly prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to the sale of:
Unauthorized replicas or copies of items are prohibited on Atawall. We consider counterfeit or unauthorized goods to be items that imitate an authentic good, particularly by using a brand’s name, logo, or protected design without the brand owner’s consent. Additionally, we may consider up-cycled or re-purposed items, even if using authentic materials, to be counterfeit if they are making use of a brand's name, logo, or protected design without their permission. Examples of prohibited counterfeit or unauthorized goods include replica luxury and non-luxury items like bags and branded apparel.
Personal information may not be sold, for instance as part of a data bank or mailing list. The sale of personal or government documents, such as credit cards, identification cards, and licenses is also prohibited.
Given associated regulations, lottery tickets, cryptocurrency mining rigs, and current, exchangeable currency and postage may not be sold on Atawall. We also prohibit the sale of financial instruments such as stocks, bonds, and other securities. Collectible currency may not be offered as 'unsearched' or as a mixed lot of unknown contents.
We prohibit items which are intended to evade the detection of illegal activity, such as radar detectors, license plate covers, and materials for faking drug tests.
Items meant to fraudulently deceive others about one’s medical status are prohibited. This includes items such as fraudulent test results, or items designating an animal as a service animal. We also prohibit items which deceptively infringe on someone’s privacy, such as concealed cameras or tracking devices, and lockpicking devices.
6. Internationally Regulated Items
Atawall provides a direct connection between buyers and sellers around the world. If you buy or sell an item from another country, or if you enter into a transaction with someone across international borders, you are responsible for complying with laws and regulations of the country of destination as well as your local laws.
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 licenses, 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 Atawall’s services, you are also responsible for complying with economic sanctions and trade restrictions, including those implemented by the Office of Foreign Assets Control ("OFAC") of the US Department of the Treasury. All Atawall members must comply with our Sanctions Policy, regardless of their location.
Atawall 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 programs. Atawall has no authority or control over the independent decision-making of these providers.
7. Nudity and Mature Content
As a creative community, we tend to be fairly liberal about what we allow on Atawall. That said, we prohibit pornography, illegal or exploitative items, and used intimate items. Beyond that, we allow but place restrictions on mature content so that people who are offended by this kind of material don't have to see it. If you are selling mature content, we ask that you be respectful of differing sensibilities by listing and tagging your items properly.
8. Violent Items: Items that Promote, Support, or Glorify Violence
We want Atawall to be a safe place for everyone. While violent content can be a legitimate part of historical, educational, or artistic expression, it should never be used to promote or glorify violent acts against others.
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY POLICY
Atawall comply with intellectual property laws and industry best practices in order to maintain the integrity of our marketplace. This Intellectual Property Policy explains how we address allegations of infringement, how authorized parties can submit reports of infringement regarding content on our marketplace, and how Atawall sellers can respond when their listings or shops are affected by a report.
1. Atawall's Role
Atawall is a marketplace comprised of third party sellers who run their own shops, create their own policies, and are responsible for their inventory, shipments, and complying with the law. We provide a venue, but Atawall does not manufacture goods, hold inventory, or ship items on behalf of our sellers. The content uploaded on Atawall's marketplace is generated by independent sellers who are not employees, agents, or representatives of Atawall. Sellers are responsible for ensuring they have all necessary rights to their content and that they are not infringing or violating any third party’s rights by posting it.
Atawall can’t speak on behalf of intellectual property owners, nor is Atawall in a position to offer legal advice or make legal determinations whether a listing’s content infringes someone else’s intellectual property. Atawall will remove material cited for alleged intellectual property infringement when provided with a report that complies with our policies.
2. Reports of Intellectual Property Infringement
Atawall strives to respond quickly when we receive a report of intellectual property infringement that complies with our policies by removing or disabling access to the allegedly infringing material. When Atawall removes or disables access in response to a report, Atawall makes a reasonable attempt to contact the affected member, provide information about the report and removal, and, in cases of alleged copyright infringement, provide information about how to submit a counter notice. Atawall may also provide a copy of the infringement report, including the name and email address of the reporting party, to the affected member.
Atawall may request additional information before processing a report, such as a letter of authorization from the rights owner, identity verification of the reporting party, or other documentation regarding the claimed right. Atawall may reject reports of infringement or counter notices that contain information we believe is false, fraudulent, incomplete, or otherwise submitted in bad faith. Atawall also reserves the right to take action against abusers of this policy.
3. Counter Notice
In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), Atawall accepts counter notices for copyright infringement reports only. When Atawall receives a DMCA counter notice, we will provide a copy of the counter notice to the original complaining party. The removed material may be replaced or access to it may be restored 10 business days after the counter notice is processed, unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order restraining the allegedly infringing party from relisting the items, and informs Atawall of this action.
4. Repeat Infringement
Atawall only accepts withdrawals of infringement reports directly from the intellectual property owner or authorized representative who submitted the claim. The withdrawal must clearly state that it is a formal withdrawal and sufficiently identify the member and/or material (such as by providing the username, shop name, and Atawall listing URLs).
Once Atawall receives a formal withdrawal of an infringement report, Atawall will contact the withdrawing party to confirm receipt and will notify the affected member of the withdrawal. Please note that infringement matters are reviewed on a case-by-case basis, and withdrawals do not guarantee changes to a member's shop status.
Customs & Import Taxes
Who is going to bear the Customs & Import Taxes?
You will probably be charged to the customs fees on items ordered from Atawall, as your purchases on Atawall are considered imports since the packages are shipped from overseas.
Customs taxes are not included in the price of the item or in the delivery costs.
The taxes may depend on where your order was sent from, the type of items you bought, their value and the weight of the package. Different countries may have different tax policies regarding specific products. It’s always best to confirm this with the seller or your local customs authority.
To avoid any unforeseen surprises, please pay attention to the following:
• Ask the seller if you need to pay any additional import duties, taxes or other customs-related charges.
• Contact your local post or customs office to find out more about your country’s customs duties and taxes.
• Import duties, taxed or other customs-related charges are normally collected by the shipping company upon delivery.
• Sellers are not responsible for delays caused by the customs department in your country.
• Additional costs or delays may occur during international trade.
• Some sellers offer domestic delivery. This means that they will send your order from a warehouse in your country. In this case, you won’t be asked to pay for any additional customs duties and taxes.
