Offer listing Policy


Artifacts

Artifacts, cultural relics and historical grave markers, and related items are protected under PRC law. Please follow the general guidelines and do not list any of the above mentioned items.

According to Article II of the ‘Supplementary Regulations on the Punishment of Criminals Who Smuggle’ promulgated by the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress, smuggling out of the country prohibited cultural relics, gold, silver, other precious metals, rare animals and their products shall be subject to a minimum sentence of imprisonment of five years with fine or confiscation of property. In the case of more serious offenses, life imprisonment or the death penalty will be imposed in addition to the confiscation of property. For less serious offenses, imprisonment of less than five years and a financial penalty will be imposed.

According to Article 25 of the amended ‘China’s Cultural Relics Protection Law’, personal collection relics are strictly prohibited from being sold to foreign (non-PRC) parties.

Counterfeit Currency and Stamps

Horyee.com strictly prohibits the sale and purchase of counterfeit currency and stamps, coins, bank notes, bonds, money orders, and other securities, as well as equipment designed to produce such illegal items.

Any “reproduction,” “replica,” or “copy” coin as a collectible item must be clearly marked with the word COPY, REPRODUCTION or REPLICA. Only under this stipulation, such reproduction coins are permitted.

Crude Oil

The sale or purchase of crude oil by sellers and buyers located in China is prohibited on the Horyee.com site.

Contracts and Tickets

Before posting an item on Horyee.com, you should carefully read any contracts that you have entered into that might limit your right to sell your item on Horyee.com. Some items, such as airline tickets, have terms printed on the item that may limit your ability to sell that item. In other cases, such as when you are distributing a company’s products, you may have signed a separate contract restricting your ability to market the product.

Horyee.com does not search for items that may raise these types of issues, nor can it review copies of private contracts, or adjudicate or take sides in private contract disputes. However, we want you to be aware that posting items in violation of your contractual obligations could put you at risk with third parties. Horyee.com therefore urges that you not list any item until you have reviewed any relevant contracts or agreements, and are confident you can legally sell it on Horyee.com.

We provide this information to assist you in protecting yourself from liability and trading safely on Horyee.com. You are responsible for ensuring that your transaction is lawful. If you have any questions regarding your rights under a contract or agreement, we strongly recommend that you contact the company with whom you entered into the contract and/or consult with an attorney.

Credit Card

Horyee.com permits the posting of inactive credit or debit cards, provided that the card has been expired for at least 10 years (this time frame was selected by Horyee.com to define “collectible” credit cards for the purposes of our site.)

Unexpired, active credit or debit cards cannot lawfully be transferred from one person to another, and therefore such items may not be listed on Horyee.com. The transfer of recently expired credit cards raises privacy concerns and creates the potential for abuse, and therefore such items are also prohibited on the site. If posting a picture of the card, you should cover or block out at least part of the name and/or credit card number.

Older, expired credit cards originally issued by credit card companies, gas companies, stores, and banks may have some collectible value. Horyee.com will permit the postings of such expired cards, provided that the expiration date on the face of the card is at least 10 years old. Sellers should also examine the terms and conditions on the card to ensure that the sale of the expired card is not prohibited.

Event Ticket Resale Policy

Horyee.com permits the resale of tickets to entertainment events (including sporting events, concerts, and plays) to the fullest extent permitted by law.

However, Horyee.com cannot give you legal advice on your ticket transactions, and you should be aware that there may be laws (such as laws of local municipalities that require resellers to obtain licenses) that may apply to your transaction. The information provided here is simply provided to you as a starting point for your research. As a ticket seller, you are responsible for ensuring that your particular transaction does not violate any applicable law or the terms on the ticket itself.

Financial Services

Horyee.com prohibits the providing of financial services, including money transfers, issuing bank guarantees and letters of credit, loans, fundraising and funding for personal investment purposes, etc.

Gold, Silver and Other Precious Metals

Horyee.com does not permit the sale of gold, silver and other precious metals (not including jewelry).

Invoices

The sale of any form of invoices, including but not limited to value added invoice, is strictly prohibited on the Horyee.com site.

Non-transferable Items (Lottery, airline tickets, etc.)

Horyee.com does not permit the sale of lottery tickets.

Real Estate

When you see a real estate posting, it means that buyers can contact the seller to get more information and express interest about the property listed. This format was created for people selling real estate who want to get in contact with as many interested buyers as possible.

Stocks and Other Securities

The law regulates the sale of stocks and other security interests that represent a current investment ownership interest in an entity, and efforts by individuals to raise money or find investors for businesses. Such regulations place substantial restrictions on an individual’s ability to sell such items on the Internet through Horyee.com, and therefore Horyee.com does not permit the sale of “securities” on its site. Examples of items not allowed on Horyee.com:

  • All stocks, bonds, and investment interests in any entity or property, including but not limited to corporations or partnerships, other than the exceptions permitted below for cancelled certificates and single-share gifts.
  • Credit (for example, you may not sell $1000 in credit to a buyer).
  • Solicitations to invest money in any business venture.
  • Any portion of an ongoing business.
  • 100% of any ongoing business if the sale involves a transfer of any stock in that business.
  • Documentation that represents proof of a current investment interest in any entity.
  • Notes (except as specifically permitted under our Real Estate Rules).

Some business related items are not “securities” and may be listed on Horyee.com. Examples of items that can be sold:

  • 100% of the assets of a business (inventory, lease, good will) where no transfer of stock is involved.
  • Information about how to start a business.
  • Any sale of inventory, leases, fixtures.
  • “Turn-key” businesses such as vending machines, windshield repair kits, and breathalyzer machines.
  • Tools used for a business, such as silk screening machines, photo mug equipment, business card makers.
  • Websites or domain names.
  • Old or collectible stock certificates, provided that such stock certificates are cancelled or represent an interest in an entity that no longer legally exists.

Single-share stock certificates marketed for gift purposes rather than investment purposes, provided that the certificates are marked and advertised as non-transferable, the ownership is not transferred into the name of the purchaser, and the minimum sale price is more than twice the current exchange trading price of the underlying single share security.

Stolen Property

The sale of stolen property is strictly forbidden on Horyee.com, and violates international law. Horyee.com strongly supports law enforcement efforts to recover stolen property that is listed on its Web site, and urges the prosecution of those responsible for knowingly attempting to sell such items on Horyee.com. Stolen property includes items taken from private individuals, as well as property taken without authorization from companies or governments.

If you see an item on Horyee.com that you believe is stolen, your best course is to contact law enforcement immediately. Under Horyee.com ’s privacy rules, our attorneys will provide important records about pending and past postings with an official request from law enforcement officials. Please inform the police officer handling the case that Horyee.com will be pleased to cooperate in the investigation, and ask the officer to contact Horyee.com using our law enforcement specific webform.

It is important that this webform be reserved for law enforcement use only, as it enables us to respond quickly in case of emergencies. Emails directed through this webform that are not from law enforcement will be routed to the appropriate mailbox or individual accordingly and may cause delays in response time.

If you are concerned that the images and/or text in your item description have been used by another Horyee.com user without your authorization, or that your intellectual property rights have been violated by such user, please contact our service team.

Animals and Wildlife Products

To the extent that postings contravene the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) http://www.cites.org/eng/disc/what.shtml .

Species that are the most endangered among CITES-listed animals and plants are prohibited on Horyee.com. These are threatened with extinction and CITES generally prohibits commercial international trade in specimens of these species. However, trade may be allowed under exceptional circumstances, e.g. for scientific research. In these cases, trade may be authorized by the granting of both an export permit (or re-export certificate) and an import permit. Animals protected under CITES require permits to cross international borders.

Species that are not necessarily now threatened with extinction but that may become so unless trade is closely controlled. It also includes so-called “look-alike species”, i.e. species of which the specimens in trade look like those of species listed for conservation reasons

Species included at the request of a party that already regulates trade in the species and that needs the cooperation of other countries to prevent unsustainable or illegal exploitation. International trade in specimens of species listed in this Appendix is allowed only on presentation of the appropriate permits or certificates.

Pelts, skins, internal organs, teeth, claws, shells, bones and other parts of endangered species or protected species, such as leopards, tigers, pandas, mountain zebras, etc., are forbidden on Horyee.com as well.

Exceptions: Poultry, livestock and pets, for commercial purposes, are permitted on Horyee.com.

Drugs & Drug Paraphernalia

Narcotics, steroids, poppy seeds, poppy seed products or other controlled substances cannot be listed on Horyee.com.

Drug paraphernalia, including all items that are primarily intended or designed for use in manufacturing, concealing, or using a controlled substance shall not be listed on Horyee.com.

Items that are not banned in this section include products traditionally intended for use with tobacco products, including pipes made from materials such as briar, clay, and corncob.

Prohibited items are those used for the ingestion of illicit substances including pipes such as water pipes, carburetor pipes, chamber pipes, ice pipes, bongs, etc.

Prescription Drugs and Devices

Horyee.com does not permit the posting of any controlled drug or item that requires a prescription from a licensed practitioner (such as a doctor, dentist, or optometrist) to dispense. Certain drugs, such as insulin, come in prescription and non-prescription forms. Such drugs may also be prohibited. If you are uncertain as to the permissibility of your item, please contact Horyee.com prior to posting.

Horyee.com also does not permit unauthorized medical devices such as ear candles.

Veterinary Products and Drugs for Animals

Certain drugs prescribed for animals will require a distribution license. For example, many heart worm medicines (such as Sentinel, Revolution, Heartgard and Interceptor) can only be purchased with a prescription, and these items are therefore not allowed on Horyee.com.

However, a number of flea control products (such as Program, Advantage and Top Spot) can be bought and sold without a prescription, and therefore may be listed on Horyee.com.

Ethnically or Racially Offensive Material

Postings that are ethnically or racially offensive are prohibited on Horyee.com. Sellers and purchasers must ensure that any wording used portrays appropriate sensitivity to those who might read it in their postings, and when they are offering or purchasing potentially offensive items or services.

Occasionally, if materials are of historical value or integral to the item (such as a book title), members may use offensive words and phrases such as “Yang Guizi” in the subject and description of a posting. Horyee.com encourages all members to treat others as they themselves would like to be treated.

Horyee.com generally prohibits such materials promoting Nazism, the KKK, etc.

Government IDs and Licenses

The following items may not be listed on Horyee.com:

  • Items that claim to be, or appear similar to, official government identification documents or licenses, such as birth certificates, drivers licenses, visas or passports. Furthermore, completed applications for such documents containing personal information may not be listed.

Horyee.com does not permit postings that present personal information of third parties such as addresses and telephone numbers.

Pornographic Materials or Adult Materials

Pornographic materials are not permitted on Horyee.com, as they violate laws in many countries. While Pornography is difficult to define and standards vary from nation to nation, Horyee.com will generally follow guidelines accepted in the PRC. Horyee.com strictly prohibits items depicting bestiality, rape sex, incest, or sex with graphic violence or degradation.

Horyee.com’s site is used by people all over the world. However, many countries have laws regulating adult material that are quite strict, and the law regulating the sale of such items through the Internet across national borders is an unsettled issue.

The majority of the reports received concerning adult/sexually-oriented material are related to magazines and videos. Whether to transfer such items to another category or remove them completely from the site, we consider the overall content of the posting, including photos, pictorials, and text.

Horyee.com does not permit the sale of SM products. Novelty sexually explicit items, including various types of toys, collectibles, or food items in the shape of genitalia and primarily intended for adult buyers are permitted in the appropriate category.

Spy Equipment

The sale and purchase of spy equipment, such as equipment used for wiretapping, is not permitted on the Horyee.com site.

Satellite and Cable TV Descramblers

Horyee.com does not permit the sale of items that can be used to descramble or facilitate the access to cable or satellite television programming without authorization or payment. Stating the item is for educational or test purposes will not legitimize a product that is otherwise inappropriate.

Information on “how to” descramble or gain access to cable or satellite television programming without authorization or payment is similarly not allowed. Horyee.com’s policy is to prohibit any “encouragement” of this type of activity. If your item is marketed in such a manner, the auction shall be ended early by Horyee.com.

Some examples of items which are not allowed include:

  • Smart Card Programmers and Unloopers
  • Programmed Smart Cards

This information is not intended to be legal advice, but it should assist you in trading safely on Horyee.com.

Police-Related Items

Legally, you may not list law enforcement badges or official law enforcement equipment from any public entity, including badges issued by the government of any country.

The majority of international law enforcement organizations maintain the position that the sale of police-related items to the public causes concern that individuals may use a badge or other police-related item to misrepresent themselves as a law enforcement officer to the public.

You may list a law enforcement badge on Horyee.com if:

  1. The law enforcement organization that issues the badge states in writing that it does not object to the sale of the item
  2. You post a copy of that letter with a valid law enforcement contact (name and phone number) on the site with the badge.

There are some limited police items that may be listed on our site, provided they observe any noted guidelines.

Badges that are clearly not official (e.g., plastic or cartoon badges)

Historical badges that do not resemble modern law enforcement badges, provided that the item description must clearly state that the badge is a historical piece at least 75 years old or issued by a now-defunct organization

Mini-badges (size approximately 1 inch by 1 inch)

Police uniforms: Uniforms must be obsolete and in no way resemble current issue police uniforms. This fact must be clearly stated within the posting description.
