Mascus operates a global leading online equipment listing service for used heavy machinery and trucks (“Equipment”) where professionals such as Equipment dealers, brokers, manufacturers and private sellers can advertise their Equipment for sale to prospective buyers, post a wanted ad for Equipment (each, an “Advertisement”) or browse other Advertisements for Equipment to buy or sell. Mascus makes trading in Equipment easier and more efficient by making available information about supply and demand all in one place. HOWEVER, WE, OUR AFFILIATES AND OUR LICENSE PARTNERS ARE IN NO WAY INVOLVED IN THE TRANSACTION OR PURCHASE CONTRACT BETWEEN BUYERS AND SELLERS.

In addition to listing services, certain other paid Services, such as access to valuation Services, require those Users to enter into a separate subscription services agreement (a “ Subscription Services Agreement”), which when signed, or otherwise agreed to, incorporates this Agreement. To the extent of a conflict between this Agreement and a Listing Agreement or Subscription Services Agreement (each a “ Product Specific Agreement”), the terms of the Product Specific Agreement will prevail.

    1. recording, copying or storing any Listing Data in any manner or for any purpose whatsoever, other than for the Permitted Uses;

    2. directly or indirectly publishing, transmitting or distributing Listings Data, or any derivative works thereof including but not limited to reports or other analyses regarding the secondary equipment market, in any manner for any form of monetary or other valuable consideration; or

  4. Listing Rules

    1. Advertisement Duration. Self-listed Advertisements will be published for the length of time you select and pay for when posting your Advertisement. Advertisements created and uploaded by other means will be published for the length of time agreed to in the applicable Listing Agreement. If your Equipment sells, it is your responsibility to remove the Advertisement using the functionality available in your User Account or to notify us so that the Advertisement can be removed.

    2. Advertisement Fees. Fees to publish self-listed Advertisements and any add-on Services are based on the then-current price list made available to you before publication and publication is conditional on payment being made in full by way of our approved means of payment. We use Adyen N.V. as our third-party service provider for payment services. By using the self-list Services, you agree to be bound by any terms of use for the Ayden service as we may make available to you from time to time. Please visit for more information. Fees for non-self-listed Advertisements and any add-on Services will be mutually agreed between you and us prior to the first publication of the Advertisements and will be specified in a Listing Agreement, if any. Invoices generated are payable without setoff whatsoever upon receipt by way of our approved means of payment. Subject to Article 4.10, once an Advertisement is published, the associated fees are non-refundable.

    3. Taxes; Interest; Other Costs. All fees payable for Services are exclusive of any applicable sales, use, value added or goods and services taxes, customs duties, withholding taxes or similar levies of any kind, including interest and penalties thereon. If any amount payable is not received by us within thirty (30) days of receipt, we may (i) condition future agreements on shorter or alternate payment terms; and (ii) charge late payment fees or interest at the lower of 12% per annum or the maximum permitted by applicable law. Any judicial and extrajudicial costs of collection for unpaid amounts will be borne by you.

    5. Advertisement Placement. Advertisements may only be created and uploaded through means approved by us. Other than the self-list option available to all User Accounts, Advertisements may be uploaded via: (a) an RB Asset Solutions inventory management system supplied by Mascus International B.V. or a Mascus Affiliate; (b) automated import tools supplied by a License Partner; (c) application programming interfaces (APIs) supplied by one of our partners that either we make available to you or with whom we both have an independent relationship; or (d) any other automated means approved by us in writing. Advertisements of Equipment designated in your RB Asset Solutions inventory management system for listing on the Services will be created by pulling the Listing Data, including using the pictures, Equipment details and contact information, from your system. Due to intervals to index data and safety measures, the contents of Advertisements are not immediately visible online.

If we determine, acting reasonably, that your Advertisement is not suitable or otherwise violates this Agreement, you will be contacted by email. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we reserve the right, without liability, to delay publication or remove from publication any Advertisement that we determine, acting reasonably, is not suitable or otherwise violates this Agreement. If your Advertisement is removed prior to publication, you will be entitled to a refund of the fees paid for such Advertisement so long as removal was not due to your fraudulent, deceptive or unlawful conduct.

    8. License to Use. When creating or uploading Advertisements, You hereby grant us a perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, sublicensable, transferable and royalty-free right and license to collect, use, reproduce, distribute, transmit, perform, display, store, archive, and to modify and make derivative works of any and all Listings Data associated with your Advertisements in order to provide, maintain, secure and improve the Services, including without limitation to market and promote your Advertisements using such layouts and user interfaces for the Services as we determine appropriate in our sole discretion, to prohibit or permit use and access by other Users of the Listing Data in accordance with the Agreement, and in de-identified or aggregate form, to develop and support our products and services and for our other business purposes (and any and all such data derived therefrom is deemed part of our Intellectual Property).

    10. Waiver of Statutory Reflection Period. While the Services are not designed for personal, family or household use, we acknowledge that in certain jurisdictions, private seller Users may be entitled to certain statutory rights when self-listing Advertisements. Such self-listing private seller Users hereby acknowledges that by submitting an Advertisement for publication, the User expressly agrees to commencement of the contract for Services immediately and thereby waives any statutory cooling-off or reflection period the User may have been entitled to.

    11. Non-Mascus Applications. APIs and other approved automated means supplied by one of our partners (“Non-Mascus Applications”) are made available for use by their respective providers and may be subject to their own terms and conditions. If the provider ceases to make the Non-Mascus Applications available for interoperation with the Services or does so on terms we deem to be unreasonable (i.e. cancels service, uses old integration methods or inadequate security protocols), we may modify, suspend or cease providing such interoperability with features of the Services. You will not be entitled to any refund, credit or other compensation. In such case, if such alteration, suspension or cessation is not acceptable to you, then your sole and exclusive remedy is to terminate your agreement with us for Services.
