Blinker is a vehicle listing and information service that brings together buyers and sellers. BLINKER IS NOT AN AUTOMOBILE BROKER OR DEALER AND DOES NOT SELL, EXCHANGE, BUY, OR OFFER FOR SALE, NEGOTIATE OR ATTEMPT TO NEGOTIATE, A SALE OR EXCHANGE OF AN INTEREST IN ANY VEHICLE LISTED FOR SALE ON OUR SERVICE.
Although Blinker is not a party to any vehicle sale contract between vehicle buyers and sellers that originates on or through the Service, Blinker offers other ancillary products and services including, but not limited to, vehicle financing, service contracts, mechanical breakdown insurance, vehicle registration/titling, and vehicle transfer escrow services. Not all ancillary products and services are available in every state. We have the unrestricted right to sub-contract and/or assign the performance/fulfillment of any of the products and services we offer to third party providers of our choice.
We may make changes to these Terms from time to time. When we do, we will revise the “effective” date given above. While we may, from time to time, alert you to changes in the Terms, it is your responsibility to review these Terms frequently and to remain informed of any changes to them. The then-current version of these Terms will supersede all earlier versions. You agree that your continued use of our Service after such changes have been published to our Service will constitute your acceptance of such revised Terms.
You agree that these Terms are supported by reasonable and valuable consideration, the receipt and adequacy of which you hereby acknowledge, including, without limitation, your access to and use of the Service and data, materials and information available at or through the Service.
Buyers and Sellers
All buyers and sellers must be at least 18 years old to use the Blinker Service and by using the Service, you represent that you are at least 18 years old.
Information about a particular vehicle is supplied by the seller, not by Blinker. The price and other terms of any sale are arranged after negotiation between the buyer and the seller. Blinker is not responsible for incorrect information given by buyers or sellers, including information regarding vehicles, including but not limited to vehicle mileage, condition, history, or photos of vehicles. CarFax vehicle reports are provided for informational purposes only from an unaffiliated third-party vehicle report provider, and Blinker is not responsible for any incorrect information or mistakes. We cannot verify the information/photos that sellers supply or guarantee the vehicles they offer. When using this Service to buy or sell a vehicle, please use common sense and good judgment. When dealing with prospective purchasers/sellers, we urge you to take the same precautions you would take if you were purchasing/selling a car through a classified ad in the newspaper.
BLINKER MAKES NO GUARANTEES, WARRANTEES OR REPRESENTATIONS REGARDING ANY VEHICLES LISTED FOR SALE ON OUR SERVICE. VEHICLE SALES ARE BETWEEN THE BUYER AND THE SELLER ONLY. BLINKER DOES NOT OWN, INSPECT, BUY OR SELL ANY VEHICLES LISTED FOR SALE ON OUR SERVICE.
The prices listed by sellers on Blinker exclude government fees and taxes, finance charges, registration and titling fees, regulatory and electronic processing charges, inspection charges, emission testing charges, and any other fees required by law, any or all of which may be added to the listed price to arrive at the final sale price of a particular vehicle.
Listing Your Vehicle
To list a vehicle for sale on Blinker, sellers are required to provide certain identifying and contact information. The information must accurately identify the seller and the method of contact must permit buyers to communicate directly with the seller. You may not charge any potential buyer for information about any vehicle listed for sale on Blinker’s Service, nor may you use our Service to promote, without our prior written permission, any other website, product, or service. Sellers must be prepared to sell their vehicles at the price at which, and on the terms on which, they are listed. You must have possession of the actual vehicle listed and the proper authority to transfer title. In order to list a vehicle for sale on Blinker, a seller must be the registered owner of the vehicle being listed for sale or be able to provide a power of attorney authorizing the seller to sign documents necessary to transfer the vehicle and pay any outstanding lien(s) on behalf of the registered owner.
You represent that you are not a motor vehicle dealer or broker, or acting in the capacity as an owner, employee or representative of a dealer or broker.
Each listing may be used to advertise only one vehicle, regardless of a listing’s duration. For this reason, you cannot edit your vehicle’s year, make, model, or VIN once you have “listed” your car. Always make certain this information is accurate before listing your automobile. Blinker reserves the right (but assumes no obligation) to delete, move, or edit any listings that we consider unacceptable or inappropriate, whether for legal or other reasons.
Once the Seller and Buyer have agreed to buy/sell a listed vehicle and the terms are agreed upon, then fees may be incurred by one or more parties in the event Blinker services are accessed (e.g. vehicle registration services and/or escrow services).

If you obtain Financing, Mechanical Breakdown Insurance, or a Service Contract from Blinker, additional terms and conditions apply.

All claims between you and us shall be brought in your or our individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding. The arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claim, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. YOU EXPRESSLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT YOU MAY HAVE TO PARTICIPATE AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS MEMBER ON ANY CLASS CLAIM YOU MAY HAVE AGAINST US INCLUDING ANY RIGHT TO CLASS ARBITRATION OR ANY CONSOLIDATION OF INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATIONS.
Arbitration shall be conducted by an arbitration organization selected by the parties. The arbitrator shall be a single arbitrator who is a retired judicial officer and shall be selected pursuant to the rules of the arbitration organization or, alternatively, may be selected by agreement of the parties. The parties will cooperate in good faith to select the arbitration organization and the arbitrator. In the event the parties cannot agree on an arbitration organization, the arbitration shall be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (www.adr.org).
The arbitrator shall apply governing substantive law and the applicable statute of limitations. We will advance your filing, administration, service or case management fee and your arbitrator or hearing fee all up to a maximum of $5,000, unless applicable rules or substantive law require us to advance in excess of this amount, in which case we will advance the amount required under applicable rules or law. The amount we pay may be reimbursed in whole or in part by decision of the arbitrator if the arbitrator finds that any or all of your claims are frivolous under applicable law. Each party shall be responsible for its own attorney, expert and other fees, unless awarded by the arbitrator under applicable law. If the chosen arbitration organization’s rules conflict with this Arbitration Agreement, then the provisions of this Arbitration Agreement shall control, except where the conflict would render the chosen organization unable to conduct the arbitration or would render this Arbitration Agreement unenforceable. In that case, the rules of the chosen arbitration organization shall apply to effect the parties’ intention to arbitrate their disputes. Any arbitration under this Arbitration Agreement shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. § 1 et. seq.) and not by any state law concerning arbitration. Any award by the arbitrator shall be in writing and will be final and binding on all parties, subject to any limited right to appeal under the Federal Arbitration Act.
You and we reserve the right to pursue small claims actions so long as such actions remain within the jurisdiction of the small claims court.
In the event you enter into an Automobile Loan & Security Agreement with us, our pursuit of self-help remedies (repossession), an action to recover the vehicle (replevin), or an action to recover a deficiency balance following repossession shall not constitute a waiver of our right to arbitrate.
Should any portion of this Arbitration Agreement, other than the waiver of class action rights, be deemed unenforceable, the remaining portions of this Arbitration Agreement shall remain enforceable.
Enforcement of these Terms will be governed by the laws of the State of Colorado, excluding its conflict and choice of law principles. The exclusive jurisdiction and venue for any claims arising out of or related to these Terms or your use of the Services or Service Content will lie in the state and federal courts located in Denver County, within the State of Colorado, and you irrevocably agree to submit to the jurisdiction of such courts. Our failure to enforce any right or provision in these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision unless acknowledged and agreed to by us in writing. In the event that a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable, the remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect.
