MyClassifieds  action or inaction to regulate content or conduct or to enforce against any potential violation of the terms of use by any user (or any other third party) does not waive MyClassifieds ’ right to implement or not implement regulation or enforcement measures with respect to any subsequent or similar content, conduct or potential terms of use violation.

You also understand and agree that any action or inaction by MyClassifieds  or any of its directors, officers, stockholders, employees, consultants, agents or representatives (collectively, " MyClassifieds  Representatives") to prevent, restrict, redress or regulate content, or to implement other enforcement measures against any content, conduct or potential terms of use violation is undertaken voluntarily and in good faith, and you expressly agree that neither MyClassifieds  nor any MyClassifieds  Representative shall be liable to you or anyone else for any action or inaction to prevent, restrict, redress, or regulate content, or to implement other enforcement measures against any content, conduct or potential violation of the terms of use.

POSTING AND ACCOUNTS

Unless AMH has specifically authorized an exception to a particular term for a particular user in a written agreement, AMH has sole and absolute discretion to authorize or deny any exception or exceptions to the terms in this section.

a. Postings

MyClassifieds  is intended and designed as a local service. A user may post content only to the single specific geographic area offered on MyClassifieds for which that content is most relevant. The same or substantially similar content (for example, an advertisement for a particular item or service or a particular offer,) may not be posted to or communicated via more than one such geographic area. Content that is equally relevant to multiple (i.e., more than one) geographic areas should not be posted on MyClassifieds.

The same or substantially similar content may not be posted in more than one category. A user may post content only in the single category to which it is most relevant, and must not post content to inappropriate categories.

A user may post the same or substantially similar content no more than once every 48 hours.

Where a  category provides specific subcategories for posts by particular types of users (e.g., car sales "by-owners" versus "by-dealers," and real estate for sale "by-owner" versus "by-broker"), a user may post content only in the single user sub-category most accurate for that user. In particular, no user acting as a broker, agent or dealer may post in any "by owner"

It is expressly prohibited for any third party to post content to MyClassifieds on behalf of another. Users must post content only on their own behalf, and may not permit, enable, induce or encourage any third party to post content for them.

It is expressly prohibited to post content using any automated means. Users must post all content personally and manually through all steps of the posting process. It is also expressly prohibited for any user to develop, offer, market, sell, distribute or provide an automated means to perform any step of the posting process (in whole or in part). Any user who develops, offers, markets, sells, distributes or provides an automated means to perform any step of the posting process (in whole or in part) shall be responsible and liable to Alpha Media Holdings for each instance of access to myclaasifieds.co.zw (by any user or other third party) using that automated means.

b. Accounts

A user may maintain and use no more than one account, including a telephone or phone-verified account, to post content. A user specifically may not create or use additional accounts for the purpose of circumventing technological restrictions (security measures) in the posting process or otherwise for posting content in violation of the terms of use.

A user may create an account, including a verified account, only on his or her own behalf. A user must not permit, enable, induce or encourage others to create accounts or verified accounts for him or her. The creation of accounts for others is expressly prohibited.

A user must only use his or her own account, and may not use any account of another.

The purchase and sale of accounts, including but not limited, is expressly prohibited.

A user must create his or her account personally and manually and may not create accounts by any automated means. Without limitation, this includes the obligation that the user personally and manually solves any challenge in the account creation process. Further, a user must create any account using his or her own valid telephone number. The creation of  an account using a telephone number that is not the user's own, a telephonic forwarding service or system, or a temporary or disposable telephone number or service is expressly prohibited. The circumvention of any technological restriction or security measure in the account creation process is also expressly prohibited.
