Columbia River Arts - Terms and Conditions Specific to On-Line Shop

Columbia River Arts (hereafter referred to as "CRA") is an online venue which allows the buying and selling of handmade goods.

CRA is not directly involved with any transaction or associated agreements made between parties who engage in the buying and/or selling of goods on the site. As such, CRA can not guarantee the quality, legality, authenticity or safety of any products listed or the accuracy of the listings. CRA accepts no responsibility, nor shall be held liable for the transactions that occur as a result of usage of the website.

CRA may change these terms at any time by posting changes online.

Vendor Terms

Vendors may access the site at the sole discretion of CRA. The vendor must be a paid subscriber on CRA and as a result of the paid subscription will have access to this site as a vendor. CRA may cancel membership of any vendor at any time without notice and without refund. CRA is not liable to any user or any third party for the cancellation of your account.

In order to maintain your status as a vendor on CRA you must keep your subscription current, if your subscription is not current your shop will not be visible after a 30 day grace period. If you choose to re-activate your subscription you will be able to do so from your vendor administration area. Your shop will then be reactivated and your existing products will be available for sale once again.

CRA is providing a marketplace venue for the vendors of this site to display and sell their handmade items. By listing products the vendor agrees that they have the legal right to sell their listed items. The vendor also agrees not to list any item that is not handmade by them.

Vendors may list and sell as many items they choose provided that they have maintained their paid subscription on CRA. If a vendor chooses to sign up to sell on CRA, they agree that their shop may be removed at anytime if left empty.

CRA will not be involved in disputes between buyers and sellers. CRA strongly suggests that the sellers clearly post their shop policies in their virtual storefront area. The vendor agrees to hold CRA harmless during any disputes that may arise.

By listing products for sale, the vendor agrees that the item is available for sale and will be shipped out within 1 week unless their policy states otherwise or other arrangements have been made between the buyer and seller.

By listing an item for sale the vendor is acknowledging that the product is as described and/or pictured. The vendor is acknowledging that the description and/or picture clearly represent to the buyer the characteristics of such product in order to create a clear understanding of the product.

You agree that CRA is not responsible or liable for any content, for example, data, text, information, usernames, graphics, images, photographs, profiles, audio, video, items, and links posted by you, other users, or outside parties on CRA. You use the CRA service at your own risk.

Transactions Between Vendors and Customers

All transactions between customers and vendors are legally binding and are the sole responsibility of both parties to honor such contract.

CRA provides a payment gateway through PayPal in order that customers may exchange monies with the vendor. Disputes that occur at any of these vendors are to be handled with those parties involved. All users, customers and vendors alike, will hold the CRA harmless for any problems that may arise by such monetary transactions. CRA shall not be held liable, nor will CRA be required to mediate or adjudicate the transaction or any resulting conflict between the two parties.

General Guidelines

CRA reserves the right in its sole discretion to remove any material displayed on the website which it reasonably believes is unlawful, could subject CRA to liability, violates this agreement or is otherwise found inappropriate in CRA's opinion. In connection with any of the foregoing, CRA may suspend or terminate the account of any user as CRA deems appropriate in its sole discretion.

If a store has been suspended for more than 30 days, we may completely delete all store content including products, images, categories and texts.

If you have not logged in your CRA account for more than 1 year, you may receive an email from us asking you to login within a specified period of time. If you fail to login within the outlined time frame, we will consider your store abandoned and will completely delete part or all of your store content including products, images, categories and texts.


This agreement is intended to protect CRA from any potential legal issues. All users acknowledge this fact by using this site on their own free will. Users shall hold CRA completely harmless of any and all legal claims. Any claim that does arise will be settled by the respective seller and/or customer involved. CRA is not liable for any of the products that are listed and/or sold by the vendors.
