The primary goal of this website is to connect together people that are
looking for specific machines and people that wish to sell their machines. Potential buyers can
browse through the list of available announcements added by Sellers. You can both add
announcements and browse through them free of charge. However, we will claim a commission if we
find you a buyer for the machine described in the announcement. You can find all details about
both our website and our services further within these Terms of Service.

- If the machine is broken, damaged, incomplete or cannot be used
according to its purpose/description, the seller is required to state that in the
description. The price should reflect the actual state of the machine.
- We reserve the right to modify details of machines that you have
submitted on our website in order to ensure the highest quality of all offers available on
our website. However, such changes should not affect neither the overall scope of the
announcement nor machine’s price.
- We reserve the right to reject your announcement, even if provided
with all necessary information, in case the machine you want to sell is not related to food
processing industry and related. In such case, we will inform you about that and remove the

you announcement to be able to present them in all: Polish, English and Russian language. As

buyer for your machine. The net commission is equal to 10% of the machine’s net price
displayed in the announcement (but no less than 250€). The actual settlement between you and
us should be done basing on an invoice we send to you.
- To make sure you are aware of the actual commission value for your
machine, we will inform you about that amount next to the Expected Price field when you are
about to add new announcement. If you find this value unacceptable, you can refrain from
submitting the announcement you are about to create. The announcement will stay in a draft
state in case you wish to actually submit that Announcement later. You can also remove such
draft Announcement if you wish so.
- Announcements that are in a draft state are not visible for anyone
but the Seller.
- Every Announcement that you submit will be active for 31 days. After
this period we will mark your announcements as expired and inform you about this fact.
Expired announcements are not being shown on the search result list and, when visited by
potential buyers, will be marked as expired.
- In you wish to make the announcement visible again, you can renew the
announcement through the dedicated option on the list of your announcements and/or on the
details page of your announcement. We will ask you to provide again the price for the
machine to make sure it is up to date.
- Announcement renewal works similarly to the initial submission of the
announcement. Is free of charge to renew the announcement, however we will claim provision
if you successfully sell machine to the contact we provide to you. The same commission rate
table applies here.
- If we decide to amend the global commission rate table, we will
inform you about this in advance. However, the commission rate for active machine
announcements that you have on our website will remain unchanged. We will take new
commission rate for every newly added announcements and for offers that you refresh, when
- The commission is calculated basing on the price specified in the
announcement we display on website. If this price changes as a result of price negotiations
between the seller and the buyer, the seller is required to inform us about that. Basing on
provided data, PPHU Merkury Maciej Nowicki can, but is not required to, amend the expected
commission amount for that machine. We reserve this right refrain from amending the
commission to protect us from e.g. any price manipulations conducted in bad faith and/or to
cause damage to PPHU Merkury Maciej Nowicki.
- Finally, the seller is required to immediately revoke/remove the
announcement for machines that she sold outside the website, is no longer the owner of, is
no longer permitted by the owner of the machine to act on behalf of, or has no longer the
intention to sell.
Laws and regulations in regards to browsing through available machines
- A potential buyer can navigate through the website to search for a
machine that she might be interested in.
- For every machine, potential buyer can read all provided information

you with the seller, we will charge you with the commission. The net commission is equal to
5% of the machine’s net price available in the announcement (but no less than 125€). The
actual settlement between you and us should be done basing on an invoice we send to you.
- We will remind all potential buyers about the fact and the amount of
the commission they will have to pay us if they successfully buy the machine using our
website. This information can be found on the machine details page next to the expected
price for the machine itself.
- If we decide to amend the global commission rate table, we will
inform you about this in advance. However, the commission rate for announcements that you
have already have the contact established for will remain unchanged. We will take new
commission rate for offers that potential buyers send new contact request for.
- All prices displayed on the website as well as commissions are Net
values for the machine itself. You need to remember about necessary taxes (if applicable),
transport costs and other costs like e.g. customs tariffs. PPHU Merkury Maciej Nowicki does
not take any responsibilities for these.
Laws and regulations in regards to a request to buy a machine
- Whenever PPHU Merkury Maciej Nowicki receives a request from
potential buyer that she is interested in buying certain machine, we:
- Inform potential buyer about transaction terms and remind about the
commission to be paid in case of a successful transaction
- Request Potential buyer to sign intermediation agreement that
states that the potential buyer is forbidden to make a transaction with the seller (or
her legal representative) for this particular machine outside of our website. This
agreement also forbid the Potential buyer to disclose any Seller details to other people
- Request the Seller to sign intermediation agreement that states
that the seller is forbidden to make a transaction with that potential buyers for this
particular machine outside of our website. This agreement also forbid the Seller to
disclose any Potential Buyer details to other people or entities.
- Potential buyer and/or Seller may decide not to sign the agreement
but this will cause that their contact details will not be shared to each other, and they
cannot make the transaction using our Website / Services.
- Only whenever both intermediation agreements are signed, the contact
details are shared between the seller and potential buyer and parties can initiate the
actual part of Machine acquisition.
- From this point on, PPHU Merkury Maciej Nowicki does not take active
part in the Machine acquisition process, however we can act as a support for the deal for
example if one of parties ask for such assist. Moreover, PPHU Merkury Maciej Nowicki is not
part of the deal itself and does not take any responsibility for any damage caused by either
of the deal sides to each other, especially if one of the deal side does not fulfil their
responsibilities or liabilities to the other side.
- If as part of the cooperation between the Seller and Potential Buyer
they decide to make a deal about other machine that the one used to establish the initial
contact for, but for that machine there is an announcement submitted by the Seller and
available on our Website, PPHU Merkury Maciej Nowicki reserves rights to claim the
commission similarly like it would be the primary machine used to establish the contact
between the Seller and Potential Buyer. The commission value is calculated on general rules
as descried in this document.
- Finally, the seller is required to inform within 7 days PPHU Merkury
Maciej Nowicki about the completed deal between the seller and the buyer (including the
actual list of machines sold and the transaction price). Basing on that event, PPHU Merkury
Maciej Nowicki will create and send invoice for our services to both the seller and the
buyer. If the seller fails to inform us about the completed deal, we will be allowed to
charge the Seller with a fine of additional 100% of the commission value for that machine –
which means that the Seller will have to pay double the commission value.
