Product Description. Accu-Trade owns or (where required, appropriate or applicable) has been licensed by third parties to use, all right, title and interest in and to the Accu-Trade Appraiser Product software (collectively, with the associated documentation and other materials, “Appraiser”). Appraiser is a vehicle valuation and pricing tool for use by validly licensed automobile dealers (“Dealers”). The vehicle valuation which Appraiser produces is conditioned upon the vehicle having a valid VIN, and the accuracy of the state of the vehicle’s condition and type of prior usage, personal or commercial, which the Dealer represents. Exceptional circumstances and causes may have an adverse effect upon the vehicle valuation process. Accu-Trade shall not be obligated to produce valuations for “Restricted Vehicles” which are: commercial vehicles; converted vehicles, vehicles with a government, police, fire, theft or livery history; vehicles subject to recall or government investigation; recreational vehicles; reconstructed or salvage vehicles; vehicles without a valid VIN; “grey market” vehicles; vehicles having in excess of 120,000 miles; vehicles older than seventeen (17) model years; vehicles with altered odometers, drivelines or bodies or illegal or non-functioning emissions equipment; flood, hail or fire damaged vehicles; vehicles with substantial mechanical or electrical damage; vehicles registered at an auto auction or offered for sale on a wholesale website within forty five (45) days prior to the attempted generation of a valuation for such vehicle; vehicles with undisclosed liens or questionable ownership; and certain other categories of vehicles which Accu-Trade may designate, from time to time, in its sole discretion. Without limiting the generality of the “Disclaimer” section below, the User acknowledges and agrees that neither Accu-Trade nor its business partners make any representation or warranty that any price generated by the Appraiser for a particular vehicle will be accurate, current, complete or otherwise comparable with prices offered in the marketplace for the same or similar vehicle.
License. Upon Dealer’s purchase of a subscription to Appraiser and Dealer’s continuous compliance with its terms and conditions, including the license fee payment terms, and the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Accu-Trade grants to Dealer a revocable, limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to use the Appraiser Product for legitimate and lawful purposes directly related to Dealer’s business. As between the Dealers and Accu-Trade, Appraiser constitutes Accu-Trade’s valuable proprietary intellectual property that is protected by applicable intellectual property and other proprietary rights recognized by the laws and international treaties of the United States and other countries. As a subscriber to Appraiser, Dealers represent and warrant that they are a licensed automobile Dealer pursuant to applicable laws or are representing such party and have authority to do so. Dealers agree not to modify, decompile, disassemble, reverse engineer, decode or access the code, or create derivative works from the Appraiser vehicle valuation software Product. Dealers further agrees to grant Accu-Trade a royalty-free, perpetual, worldwide, irrevocable, non-exclusive right and license to use the information and data which is used in, and results from, the use of the Appraiser Product, including but not limited to the vehicle buying and selling preferences, tendencies and demographics.
As part of the subscription for Appraiser, Accu-Trade will make available data from other third–party vehicle price guidebooks, such as NADA, Black Book, MMR and other market reports, for a subscription fee. Accu-Trade does not sponsor or endorse any of this other information which is provided solely for convenience.
Modified Connected Package
Certain OEM website programs (“OEM Program”) have restrictions which prohibit the fulfillment and billing of website applications outside the OEM Program. In these circumstances, Accu-Trade will contract with the Dealer for the modified Connected Package, which includes vehicle appraisal, access to Cars.com consumer demand, and on-board diagnostics (“OBD”) but excluding the website widget. The User must enroll in the Accu-Trade core Product containing the website widget through its OEM Program portal to obtain access to the website widget. Client will receive monthly invoices from Accu-Trade for the discounted and modified Connected Package separately from related fees invoiced through the OEM Program under core Product containing the website widget (or similar reference).
If Client does not enroll for the core Product containing the website widget in its OEM Program enrollment portal within thirty (30) days of enrollment for the Modified Connected Package, or at any time otherwise proactively opts out of the website widget, the Client will be deemed to have opted out of the website widget and Accu-Trade reserves the right to increase the price of the Connected Package without further notice.
The Connected Package will commence billing once Accu-Trade Appraisal Platform access is provided to Client via email. It is Client’s responsibility to accept and attend a training session offered by Accu-Trade at your earliest convenience in order to receive leads associated with Connected Package.
Custom Cash Offer/Instant Offer
For those consumers using or participate in the “Instant Offer” Service, Accu-Trade offers an “Instant Offer” service (the “IO Service”) whereby the User may request (i) conditional offers to purchase their used motor vehicle (excluding certain types of vehicles) from certain participating Dealers in the Accu-Trade network (each offer, a “Instant Offer”) and/or (ii) an estimated trade-in value range for the used motor vehicle, excluding certain types of vehicles (each estimate, a “Instant Estimate”). Each Instant Estimate is for informational purposes only and does not constitute, and should not be construed as, an Instant Offer or otherwise as an offer by Accu-Trade, a Dealer or any third party to purchase the User’s used motor vehicle. All Instant Offers are subject to inspection and verification of the vehicle by, or on behalf of, the purchasing Dealer, as well as the terms of, and the full compliance with, the terms of this Agreement and any other applicable terms. A participating dealer that may make an Instant Offer is referred to in this section as a “Participating Dealer.” Participating Dealers pay a monthly subscription to participate in and receive leads through the IO Service. Offers provided through the IO Service are calculated and generated by a proprietary appraisal tool intended to generate a price reflecting a liquid Instant Offer to be honored by a Participating Dealer irrespective of whether the User is purchasing another vehicle from that Participating Dealer. The IO Service is intended to guarantee to Participating Dealers that the User’s vehicle will be worth at least the amount of the Instant Offer. Participating Dealers are not owned or operated by, nor are they acting on behalf of, Accu-Trade, and, except as described herein, are not otherwise affiliated with Accu-Trade. When the User requests an Instant Offer through the IO Service, they must have possession of the actual vehicle listed, with the ability to transfer valid title as set forth herein. The User is required to provide certain identifying and contact information, which must accurately identify themselves to Participating Dealers so that they can communicate directly with the User. By using the IO Service, the User represents, warrants, and covenants that the User is not: (i) a motor vehicle dealer or (ii) listing a vehicle for sale in their capacity as an owner, employee, or representative of a motor vehicle dealer. For clarity, if the User is a motor vehicle dealer, the User may not use the Instant Offer Service to obtain an Instant Offer on behalf of a customer.
The IO Service enables Participating Dealers to obtain information about vehicles for which Instant Offers have been requested and, if applicable, to contact a seller to make an Instant Offer. We are not a party to, or otherwise guarantee the terms of, any Instant Offer or any transaction resulting therefrom. The User is responsible for any transaction they engage in resulting from an Instant Offer from a Participating Dealer. Although Participating Dealers have agreed to abide by certain customer service standards, we are not responsible for any potential fraud or other misconduct by a Participating Dealer in connection with the IO Service. As a seller, the User should exercise caution and good judgment when completing any transaction, including those involving the IO Service.
The IO Service is not available in all areas and not all vehicles are eligible. The IO Service may not be used to sell or to trade-in certain categories of vehicles, including commercial vehicles; converted vehicles, vehicles with a government, police, fire, theft or livery history; vehicles subject to recall or government investigation; recreational vehicles; reconstructed or salvage vehicles; vehicles without a valid VIN; “grey market” vehicles; vehicles having in excess of 120,000 miles; vehicles older than seventeen (17) model years; vehicles with altered odometers, drivelines or bodies or illegal or non-functioning emissions equipment; flood, hail or fire damaged vehicles; vehicles with substantial mechanical or electrical damage; vehicles registered at an auto auction or offered for sale on a wholesale website within forty five (45) days prior to submitting the User’s request for an Instant Offer; vehicles that are valued at less than $1,000; and any other category of vehicle that we, in our sole discretion, believe may adversely impact the operation of the IO Service (each, a “Restricted Vehicle”). Vehicles with an Instant Offer value greater than $75,000 may not be accepted by every Participating Dealer and may require additional inspection. If the User solicits Instant Offers for any Restricted Vehicle using the IO Service, the User may not receive an Instant Offer for such vehicle and, in the event that the User does receive an Instant Offer for such vehicle, the User acknowledges and agrees that such Instant Offer may be invalidated and that no Participating Dealer is required to purchase such vehicle from the User. Participating Dealers are required to adhere to the Instant Offer generated by the IO Service for all eligible vehicles with owners residing in the United States except for Hawaii and Alaska. For consumers residing in Hawaii and Alaska, the Instant Offer produces a price range that Participating Dealers must adhere to. Residence is determined upon zip codes. All other restrictions for the IO Service apply. Participating Dealers found to be in violation of the IO Service terms and conditions may have their access to the IO Service and to any Acc-Trade Products suspended, terminated, or modified at Accu-Trade’s sole discretion. Accu-Trade reserves the right to address such violations in a manner it deems appropriate.
The User acknowledges that if they provide any false, incomplete, or inaccurate information, including vehicle information or personal contact information, their Instant Offer may be invalidated by the Participating Dealer. By requesting an Instant Offer, the User agrees that Accu-Trade, its service providers, Participating Dealers, and/or affinity partners may use the personal contact information the User provided, including their telephone number and email address, to communicate with the User about the IO Service or other Products and services that may be of interest to the User. By requesting an Instant Offer through the IO Service, the User agrees to use the email address or any other contact information of the Participating Dealer(s) making an Instant Offer only for purposes of communicating with them about the potential sale of that vehicle.
Although a Participating Dealer is not obligated to purchase a User’s vehicle for any price other than the amount of the User’s Instant Offer (subject to User’s satisfaction of the requirements herein), the User can try to negotiate a more favorable price or a trade-in value for their vehicle and, of course, the User is always free to sell or trade in their vehicle outside of the IO Service. The sale price that the User could receive for the User’s vehicle in the open market or from another source may be different than the amount of the User’s Instant Offer received through the IO Service.
To use the IO Service to receive an Instant Offer from a Participating Dealer: (1) the User’s vehicle must be located in a market in which the IO Service is offered and registered in the same state as the location of the applicable Participating Dealer; (2) the User must be the registered owner of the vehicle; (3) the User must possess a valid driver’s license or other form of valid government-issued photo ID; (4) the User must provide accurate, complete, and truthful personal contact information and responses to all questions included in the online questionnaire, including those relating to the description and condition of the User’s vehicle; and (5) the User must deliver their vehicle, with a valid registration and either clear and unencumbered title in the User’s name or complete documentation regarding any lease obligations or liens on the user’s vehicle (including, for example, contact information for their lender or leasing company, relevant account information and the current loan payoff amount or lease early termination fee for the User’s vehicle), within 72 hours of the issuance of the User’s Instant Offer, to the Participating Dealer for inspection by, or behalf of, the Participating Dealer.
The User is responsible for the information contained in the vehicle questionnaire, the content of all communications the User transmits through the IO Service, and any other information the User provides. We may perform random or selective quality assurance tests to confirm that individuals who request an Instant Offer through the IO Service are not automobile dealers and are prepared to sell such vehicles through the IO Service. By using the IO Service, the User agrees to cooperate in these quality assurance tests. If the tests reveal, or we otherwise learn, that a seller is violating these Terms and Conditions or engaging in other unfair or deceptive practices, Accu-Trade may, in its sole discretion, deny that seller use of the IO Service.
Following the User’s delivery of the applicable vehicle to the designated location, their Participating Dealer will conduct a mandatory vehicle inspection free of charge to confirm the vehicle description and condition information that the User provided as part of their request for an Instant Offer. This confirmation inspection must include use of the Appraisal Platform and may include a road test, a mechanical inspection, a review of vehicle history reports and disclosure statements regarding flood, salvage, and/or odometer discrepancies (including rollbacks), and any other reasonable tests and/or inspections that the Participating Dealer deems necessary or advisable. In the event that the inspection reveals misrepresentations and/or inconsistencies in the vehicle condition identified by the User, the Participating Dealer may (1) refuse to purchase the vehicle or (2) provide a revised Instant Offer to the User based on the actual condition of the vehicle as determined through the inspection (for clarity, such revised Instant Offer shall invalidate and replace any prior Instant Offers created prior to the Participating Dealer’s inspection). The User acknowledges and agrees that Accu-Trade has no involvement in, or liability in connection with, the Participating Dealer’s inspection of the User’s vehicle.
Upon the satisfactory inspection of the User’s vehicle by the Participating Dealer, and subject to any payments necessary to clear title as set forth below, the Participating Dealer will either: (1) issue the User a check or (2) issue the User a credit against the sale price of a vehicle available in its inventory, either of which will be in the amount of the valid Instant Offer as reduced by such payments as may be required to secure the release of all applicable liens and lease obligations and the receipt of a clear and unencumbered vehicle title. All checks will be made payable to the vehicle owner(s) named on the vehicle title.
If the User have negative equity in the User’s vehicle (i.e., the User’s outstanding loan balance or lease payment obligation exceeds the amount of the User’s Instant Offer), the User will be responsible for paying the difference between the Instant Offer price and the amount needed to clear the title to the User’s vehicle by certified check or other form of payment acceptable to the Participating Dealer before the User’s transaction can be completed. If the User has positive equity in the User’s vehicle, the Participating Dealer will issue the User a check or a credit, as applicable, for the difference between the amount needed to clear the title to the User’s vehicle and the Instant Offer price. The Participating Dealer will assist the User with processing of the paperwork and payments necessary to settle the User’s loan or lease obligations and to obtain a clear title to the User’s vehicle. The process of the Participating Dealer issuing the User a check in connection with the User positive equity in the User’s vehicle typically takes ten (10) to fourteen (14) days following delivery of a vehicle to a Participating Dealer but could take longer in some circumstances.
Payment to the User in consideration of their Instant Offer may be made by check, wire, credit card, or other form of payment, regardless of any reference to “cash offer” or “cash payment” (or similar).
THE ACCU-TRADE ENTITIES DO NOT MAKE ANY REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY THAT THE USER WILL BE ABLE TO SELL YOUR VEHICLE, OBTAIN AN ACCEPTABLE PRICE FOR THEIR VEHICLE, RECEIVE ANY INQUIRIES OR SOLICITATIONS FROM POTENTIAL PARTICIPATING DEALERS, OR RECEIVE ANY INSTANT ESTIMATE RELATING TO, OR INSTANT OFFER FOR, THEIR VEHICLE FOR SALE. IN THE EVENT THAT ANY CLAIMS OR DISPUTES ARISE OUT OF AN ACTUAL OR POTENTIAL TRANSACTION INVOLVING THE IO SERVICE, THE USER AGREES TO LOOK SOLELY TO THE PARTICIPATING DEALER FOR THEIR REMEDY.
