Policies

Intellectual Property Policy

It is the policy of Property Room, Inc. (“Property Room”) to respect the intellectual property rights of others. Such policy applies to the content and materials posted as a listing on the Property Room™ website (the "Website").

In addition, it is the policy of Property Room to prohibit the sale or offering for sale through the Website of any items that are illegal or hazardous or infringe upon any patent, trademark, copyright, or other intellectual property right (arising under the laws of any jurisdiction) or other proprietary right of any third party (“Prohibited Products”), including but not limited to explosives, firearms, poisons, pharmaceuticals, counterfeit or unauthorized copyrighted material (“knock-offs”), unauthorized replicas (such as counterfeit watches, handbags, clothing or accessories) or pirated copies (such as copies of software, video games, music, movies, TV programs, or photos).

The Website is primarily a venue for law enforcement agencies and other government agencies to conduct auctions and bidders to bid on auctions. Accordingly, items sold through the Website include items that may have been seized, forfeited, or found by law enforcement agencies. Unless otherwise expressly stated by Property Room, Property Room is involved only as a facilitator and/or agent in the transaction between buyers and sellers using the Website. As a result Property Room cannot control all content and materials posted as a listing on the Website or all items put up for auction by sellers through the Website. Therefore, Property Room has adopted the procedures set forth below to allow third parties to bring to its attention for correction any infringement by listings and/or offering of Prohibited Products through the Website.
