Advanced Search Code of Ethics

All Booksellers have agreed to abide by the following Code of Ethics.
  1. Booksellers shall carry out business according to the laws of the jurisdiction in which they are located.
  2. Booksellers shall use basic courtesy in dealing with each other and with the general public.
  3. Booksellers shall take responsibility for building trust and respect between sellers and buyers by conducting business with fairness and integrity.
  4. Booksellers shall be responsible for accurately describing all materials they offer for sale. All known defects and/or repairs shall be described.
  5. Booksellers shall make reasonable effort to authenticate any item offered for sale, and shall guarantee the authenticity of all items as described. Dealers who are made aware of errors shall make immediate corrections.
  6. Booksellers affirm their ability to pass clear title to the purchaser of any materials they offer for sale.
  7. Booksellers shall establish a fair return policy, which includes a full refund for material if returned in a timely fashion in the same condition as sent. If material is returned because it is not as described, dealers shall pay return postage. If material is as described, dealers have no obligation to pay return postage.
  8. Booksellers shall be responsible in packing and shipping materials, and shall be responsible for damage caused by improper packing. Booksellers shall be responsible for items sold until delivered to purchaser or purchaser's agent.
  9. Booksellers shall respond to inquiries, and update entries, in a timely manner.
  10. Booksellers may not add any extra charges either for insurance, for additional postage and handling, or for any other services without receiving prior approval from each purchaser before the sale is completed. A statement in a dealer's terms or conditions of sale that extra charges may be added is not sufficient notification.
  11. Booksellers shall state accurately and clearly terms and conditions of sale in a manner that can be easily understood by the general public. Terms and conditions of sale may be modified with the consent of the purchaser.
  12. Unresolved disputes shall be brought to the Arbitration Committee. Booksellers agree to abide by the decision of the Committee.
Violation of this Code of Ethics may be grounds for censure, suspension, or expulsion.
