Please read this document completely and carefully before applying for partnership with Panty Trust as it directly reflects your membership and outlines instances that may result in a member's suspension or termination of membership. Refunds of the membership fee are not provided once a membership has been created.
The members of Panty Trust take ethics and fair business practice, civil conduct, and honesty very seriously and have worked very hard to develop the credibility that Panty Trust and its members now enjoy.
As the actions of one Panty Trust member reflect on all members of the Panty Trust organization, this code of conduct has been developed by the Panty Trust membership to address important issues. Panty Trust is not for everyone.
Panty buyers and members expect all partners to be a cut above the typical used panties seller and expect partners to communicate in a respectful manner with everyone.
A member must agree these terms to gain membership in Panty Trust:
Used panties sellers who join Panty Trust are expected to have joined because they have a commitment to:
- Completing the Verification Process within 5 days
- Actively furthering fair business practices, honesty, and trust in the used panties and lingerie trade
- Supporting the community and fellow partners.
The primary purpose of a Panty Trust Partnership must not be to solely advertise and sell your products, promote your website or other social networks.
Memberships are offered to an individual independent panty seller and may not be shared with friends, other panty sellers, or other used panties websites.
Panty Trust verification seal must not be associated with non verified sellers promoted on your website.
b) Selling Used Panties and other Fetish Items
Members must be activity listing and selling on Panty Trust or their personal website in order to remain listed as Active. Members selling on other websites and not on Panty Trust are not eligible for an Active status.
When listing used panties, fetish items or service for sale, members agree to post an accurate description of what a fetish buyer is purchasing, and to provide the item as described upon payment.
If a delay or change affects the delivery of an item, members agree to contact the buyer in a timely fashion to keep them informed and/or make them aware of any changes.
c) Dispute Resolution
Members agree to participate in the dispute resolution process if a compliant is filed with Panty Trust by a panty buyer, or another members.
Members agree to respond to Panty Trust emails within 48hrs from contacting them.
d) Illegal or Unethical Activity
Members agree not to promote, insinuate, or suggest activities or situations that could be considered illegal or unethical.
Examples include but are not limited to:
- Age play or mention of anything related to minors or persons under the age of 18
- Insinuating bestiality
- Advertising the acceptance of payments or 'donations' through payment processing services that prohibit payments for adult related services and products (Paypal does not allow adult services and products related transactions)
- Committing plagiarism, copying and using others' content such as photos, text, scripts, etc without the owner prior consent. 'The website is not live, or under-construction' is not an acceptable excuse. Copying is a crime
- Advertising and selling on websites, web providers, host services, newspapers, magazines, that prohibit advertising, trading, promoting and selling adult content and adult material (for example: Craigslist, eBay, Kijiji, Webs, Weebly, Yola, do not allow adults related trade and adult themes)
e) Promoting people and websites
Members cannot link or promote third parties, or any other type of adult websites other than their verified personal website.
Promoting other websites without permission is considered spamming.
Members may not associate Panty Trust by linking to people and websites which have been banned, suspended or black-listed by Panty Trust Members.
f) Links and Contact Information
Members agree to keep their contact information and links on their Panty Trust page current at all times by informing the webmaster of Panty Trust of any changes.
If its reasonably determined that member's links to their web site being dead/broken and/or their contact email address no longer is valid, the member's Panty Trust page and their membership will be suspended.
g) Closing and deleting an Inactive Membership
Panty Trust will solicit and consider input from the general membership to determine if suspension or deletion of a membership is warranted.
The member may appeal if they believe that they have extenuating circumstances that Panty Trust was not aware of at the time of the decision.
h) Immediate Termination of Membership
In some situations a member's membership may be terminated immediately by Panty Trust without appeal. The following will result in immediate termination of a member account:
- Evidence of an activity considered to be illegal or unethical
- Evidence of involvement in a situation that involves or insinuates (even jokingly) anything to do with child pornography or a minor
- Evidence of accepting money with no intention of sending the described item
- Failure to respond to email sent from Panty Trust requesting status updates, information regarding a buyer complaint or dispute.
Refund of Membership Fee
No refunds of a member's membership fee will be given once a member's page and account have been created.
