TOWN OF GENEVA EXCHANGE
Welcome to the Town of Geneva Exchange! Do you have useful items sitting around collecting dust? Or maybe you have items you rarely use and are willing to share with others? Starting a project in your home and need a specific tool? The Exchange can facilitate donating and sharing items among community members.
The Exchange can help residents save money and space, protect the environment, and enhance our community. If you are interested in listing one or more items to be given away or loaned, or are looking for a specific item, read on for terms, conditions and instructions on proceeding.
NO COMMERCE. There are other sites where people can buy and sell. This site is for donating and loaning, not buying or selling.
NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES FROM THE TOWN OF GENEVA. The Town of Geneva is assisting residents by allowing them to connect so they can exchange items. The Town does not inspect the items or investigate the people using this service. Those using this service do so at their own risk. However, if you have an unsatisfactory experience using the site, please let us know.
WE HELP CONNECT AND YOU TAKE IT FROM THERE. People looking for particular items can list their needs on the site. People who have items to donate or lend can list them. People looking for items can review the listings. When people see something they want, they let us know, and we will advise the person with the item of the person interested in it, and it is then up to the person with the item to connect with the person who wants it and make the exchange in a way that is satisfactory to both sides.
NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES FROM DONORS OR LOANERS. Although we hope people who donate or loan items are donating or loaning useful items that work, one person’s cast-offs may be another person’s treasure, and items do break and break down, sometimes unexpectedly. We recommend you inspect items before taking possession either temporarily or permanently. We also recommend both sides discuss and agree on who is responsible for what if a loaned item breaks or breaks down.
PROCEEDING TO PARTICIPATE IN THE EXCHANGE MEANS YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTOOD AND AGREE TO ABIDE BY THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS. THIS IS A PILOT PROGRAM AND IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE OR TERMINATION.
WE APPRECIATE FEED-BACK. Let us know if you have any questions and how it goes.
