Breach of User Agreement
Without prejudice to any other rights and remedies of OlyPages under this User Agreement or at law or otherwise, we may immediately and without liability: limit your activity, remove your bids, end your listings, warn other users of your actions, temporarily / indefinitely suspend, limit or withdraw your membership, and/or limit or withdraw your access to OlyPages:

Notwithstanding the foregoing, if you breach this User Agreement we reserve the right to recover any amounts due and owing by you to OlyPages or any losses and damages caused by you to OlyPages and to take such steps including legal action and/or the initiation of criminal proceedings against you as OlyConnect Technologies Limited in its sole discretion deems necessary. Our failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not constitute a waiver of our right to take any actions with respect to that, or subsequent or similar breaches. We do not guarantee that we will take action against all breaches that there may be of this User Agreement.
We encourage buyers and sellers on OlyPages to provide feedback on each other's conduct after a transaction has closed; as this helps all users know what it is like to deal with the said buyer/seller. You acknowledge that your feedback may be displayed along with your user ID on OlyPages. You cannot retract the feedback once you have left it on OlyPages. We shall not be responsible or liable in any way for the feedback that you post on OlyPages. You agree not to make comments that are not factual in nature including without limitation making any racist comments, using profanity, abusing another user, disrespecting another culture or any other derogatory or inappropriate comments.

If you continuously receive negative feedback ratings, without prejudice to any other rights and remedies of OlyPages under this User Agreement or at law, we reserve the right to suspend, limit or withdraw your access to OlyPages and/or your membership of the Service.
You acknowledge and agree that your feedback consists of comments left by other users with whom you transact and a composite feedback number compiled by us, and that together these convey your full user profile. As feedback ratings are not designed for any purpose other than for facilitating trading between the users, you agree that you shall not market or export your OlyPages feedback rating in any venue other than on OlyPages. We do not provide the technical ability to allow you to import feedback from other websites to OlyPages because a composite number, without the corresponding feedback does not reflect your true online reputation within our community.
