Please read this agreement carefully before accessing or using the website. Now it is up to you whether you agree or not to all the terms and conditions of this agreement. If you do not agree to all these terms and conditions, then please stop and do not access the website or use any services. This website has been developed and is made available only to individuals at least 18 years old.

The usage of this website is subject to the following terms of use:

1.     ACCEPTANCE

Website shahgi.com offers a variety of online resources. These resources include classified ads and forums (collectively, the “Service”). You can find them on the website and its related sites, as well as on the mobile app associated with the platform (collectively, the “Website”).

Shahgi.com provides a website and a service. When you use the website or the service, you agree to follow certain rules called the Terms of Use. These terms apply to anyone who uses the website or service, including people who browse the website, post comments, or respond to advertisements. If you don’t like any of the terms or guidelines, your only option is to stop using Shahgi. The terms may change over time at shahgi’s sole discretion, so it’s essential for users to review them periodically. 

2.     DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE AND CONTENT POLICY

Shahgi.com is a modern platform for free online classifieds. We serve as an online marketplace where users who follow our Terms of Use can buy, sell, and offer various products and services listed on the website. While you can make payments and conduct transactions through the website (using third-party services like Easypaisa and JazzCash), Shahgi itself is not directly involved in these transactions. It’s essential to understand that Shahgi doesn’t control any part of these transactions, and it has no liability for them. You use the Service and the Website at your own risk.

You know that Shahgi doesn’t control or take responsibility for ads, business listings, messages between users, or any other stuff you might see on the website. This means you might come across things like ads or messages that are rude, wrong, or just not good. You understand that it’s up to you to decide if you want to use or believe any of that stuff, and that Shahgi isn’t responsible if you have any problems because of it.

You understand that Shahgi allows certain products and services to be shown on the website as long as they follow the rules. However, Shahgi doesn’t check or approve everything before it’s posted. Shahgi has the right to remove any content that breaks the rules or for any other reason, even without explaining why. Also, the website might have links to other websites that have nothing to do with Shahgi. If you click on these links, you might have to follow different rules from those websites. Shahgi can’t guarantee the accuracy of information on these other websites, so if you click on them, it’s your choice and Shahgi isn’t responsible for any problems.

You accept that you’re fully responsible for any content you post, share, or link to through the Service, and you understand the consequences of doing so. Specifically, you’re accountable for all content you upload, email, or otherwise make available using the Service. Regarding the content you share through the Service, you confirm and acknowledge that:

i) You’ve created the content, like descriptions and/or photos, following Shahgi’s instructions on the website. Any copyrights to this content belong to Shahgi, and if you’re considered to own any copyright, you’re giving it to Shahgi.

ii) You understand that Shahgi stores and organizes the information and/or photos you post on the website in its own database. Shahgi modifies this uploaded content by adding its logo watermark, and the copyright for these modified works also belongs to Shahgi.

iii) As long as the content is available on the website, you must have the necessary permissions to use it there. This includes any patents, trademarks, copyrights, or other rights in the content. You also authorize Shahgi to exclusively use this content as needed for the Service and the website.

iv) You’ve obtained written consent from every identifiable individual or business depicted in the content to use their name or likeness as described in these Terms.

When you submit content to the website, you’re granting Shahgi an irrevocable, perpetual, worldwide, exclusive, royalty-free license to use, reproduce, distribute, and display the content for Shahgi’s business purposes, including promoting the website. Additionally, by posting content publicly, you grant Shahgi exclusive rights to control how that content is used or displayed on the Service or the Website, including the right to take legal action under copyright and other laws of Pakistan. You’re also giving every user of the website permission to view your content there, but this permission ends if you or Shahgi removes or deletes your content from the website.

Shahgi doesn’t support any content or the opinions, statements, recommendations, or advice expressed in it, and Shahgi isn’t responsible for any user content. Shahgi doesn’t allow copyright infringement or violations of intellectual property rights on the website. If Shahgi is properly notified that content infringes on someone else’s rights, Shahgi may remove it at its discretion. Shahgi can also remove any content without warning and may block a user’s access to the website if they repeatedly infringe copyrights or violate these terms. A repeat infringer is someone who has been warned about copyright violations or has had content removed multiple times. Shahgi also has the right to decide if any content follows these terms.

If you upload photos for your ad, Shahgi might offer you a video service. By uploading your photos, not covered in the previous sections, you’re giving Shahgi an irrevocable license to exclusively use them for this service. You confirm that you own all the necessary rights to upload and use the photos for this purpose. With this service, Shahgi might create a video using a third-party application or service. Shahgi may then upload the video on platforms like YouTube, chosen at Shahgi’s discretion, and embed it into your ad on Shahgi’s platform.

3.     BUMP UP / FEATURED ADS

Shahgi might provide a service called “Bump Up / Featured Ads,” allowing users to pay a non-refundable fee to have their ads featured in specific spots on the website, potentially increasing their visibility. To buy a Featured Ad, you might need to send certain details through a third-party service provider, which has its own terms and policies. Shahgi can’t ensure the safety or security of the information you send to any third-party service provider. If you link to a third-party service, you’re doing so at your own risk, and Shahgi isn’t responsible for any issues that may arise.

5.     PAID POSTINGS

Shahgi might require a fee for posting content in certain parts of the Service, known as “Paid Posting.” This allows specific content to be displayed in a designated section of the website for a set duration. Each party posting content is accountable for it and must adhere to the Terms. The fee for Paid Posting is non-refundable, whether the content isn’t used during the agreed period or if it’s removed for violating the Terms. Paid Posting fees can’t be transferred to another posting or adjusted against another Paid Posting, and they can’t be transferred between users.

6.     POSTING AGENTS

In this context, “Posting Agent” refers to a third-party entity that posts content to the Service for others. Shahgi strictly prohibits the use of Posting Agents, whether directly or indirectly, without explicit written consent. Posting Agents are not allowed to post content for others or access the Service for posting on behalf of others without written permission or a license from Shahgi. Any permission granted by Shahgi to a Posting Agent is not transferable or assignable.
