The Women Inventorz Network is an open forum to support all women inventorz! We do not police products, or turn products away if they are similar to another product. We let the consumer decide which product they would like to purchase. All legal issues and conflicts are between the inventors and must be handled privately. This is the case for all of our programs and opportunities.
All inventors on the Women Inventorz Network platform have done their due diligence to protect their invention. All members must understand that they are exposing their idea to the public, therefore they must be ready for market.
Though officers of W.I.N. are knowledgeable about the invention process, they are not consultants and usually steer members to trusted vendors. We have a very strict process of bringing vendors into our network and recommending them to the inventors we our passionate about protecting. However, we are not responsible or liable for any advice or services provided by the vendors we recommend. We ask the inventors to notify us of any misgivings so we can make an educated decision in whether we continue recommending that vendor.
Women Inventorz Network™ is a Venue
Women Inventorz Network acts as a venue to allow users who comply with Women Inventorz Network’s policies to offer, sell, and buy inventions on their own websites and not on the Womentroz forum. Women Inventorz Network® is not directly involved in the transaction between buyers and sellers. As a result, Women Inventorz Network has no control over the quality, safety, morality or legality of any aspect of the items listed, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of sellers to sell items or the ability of buyers to pay for items. Women Inventorz Network does not pre-screen users or the content or information provided by users. Women Inventorz Network cannot ensure that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction since it doesn't take place on our site.
Consequently, Women Inventorz Network does not transfer legal ownership of items from the seller to the buyer. Women Inventorz Network cannot guarantee the true identity, gender, age, or nationality of a user. Women Inventorz Network encourages you to communicate directly with potential transaction partners through the tools available on the Site. You may also wish to consider using a third party escrow service or services that provide additional user verification.

Listing Description: By listing an item on the Site you warrant that you and all aspects of the item comply with any and all Women Inventorz Network’s policies.

Your listings may only include text descriptions, graphics, pictures, video and other content relevant to the sale of that item. All items must be listed in an appropriate category with appropriate tags. Each listing must accurately and completely describe the item/items for sale in that listing. If the "in stock" quantity is more than one, all items in that listing must be identical. Each unique item must have its own listing.
Rules for listings
To promote a safe, fair, and enjoyable trading experience, Women Inventorz Network has established a set of rules and policies for item listings. These restrictions involve how certain items are described, and practices that would provide an unfair advantage or result in a negative buyer experience.
Violations of these policies may result in a range of actions, including:
Limits on account privileges
Forfeit of Women Inventorz Network fees
Loss of Seller status
When policy violations occur, Women Inventorz Network sends an email to the seller to inform them that a listing has been ended.
In addition to the rules for listings, you should also review your listing for Intellectual Property and Patent Infringement to check if your type of item is allowed or has additional restrictions that would affect your listing. You should consult with your own attorney to determine whether your listing may infringe upon the Intellectual Property rights of third parties.
Sellers need to make sure that their listings accurately represent the item being sold. Except as noted in the specific policy as exceptions, sellers cannot:
List items in inappropriate categories.
Misrepresent the item location from which their item will be shipped.
Include brand names or other inappropriate keywords in a title or description.
Have misleading titles that do not accurately describe the item for sale.
List a single item but offer additional identical items for sale in the description.
Include separate payment surcharges that buyers pay to use ordinary forms of payment.
Misuse the reserve price option.
Charge excessive shipping.
Listings must provide an enjoyable and safe experience for buyers.
