Thank you for visiting Second Shout Out! We are an online, ecommerce, forum, blog and interactive online community bringing together merchants and collectors of vintage, vintage inspired and antique items.
What is Second Shout Out?
SSO is an online e-commerce, blog, forum and interactive online community, which facilitates a community in which buyers and sellers may independently come together for trade and commerce in vintage, vintage inspired and antique goods. We are solely a ecommerce platform and interactive community, and we are not directly involved in the transaction between buyers and sellers. Consequently, SSO cannot guarantee the safety, quality or legality of any items sold on the Site, nor can SSO transfer ownership of items purchased from the seller to the buyer. While SSO requires its sellers to accurately and completely describe any items they sell, SSO has no ability to confirm such listings. Should you have concerns about a seller, SSO encourages you to communicate directly with the seller through the tools available on the Site.
All sales are binding. Seller is obligated to ship the order or otherwise complete the transaction with you in a prompt manner, unless there is an exceptional issue, such as: (a) your failure to meet the terms of Seller’s listing (such as payment method), or (b) Seller cannot authenticate the your identity. You are obligated to deliver appropriate payment for items purchased, unless there is an exceptional issue.

Changes to SSO’s Service and Policies
This Site is operated by SSO from the State of Connecticut, United States of America. SSO makes no representation that materials in this Site are appropriate or available for use in other locations. Any ability to access this Site in any jurisdiction other than Connecticut does not constitute SSO purposefully availing itself of the privilege of conducting business in that jurisdiction.

SSO is merely an ecommerce marketplace, blog, forum and interactive online community and does not control the interactions between users, sellers, partners and other parties that use the Site. SSO may attempt to help users resolve disputes, but is under no obligation to do so. In the event that SSO does attempt to help resolve a dispute, SSO will do so based on SSO’s policies and in good faith. To the extent that you feel that you have been defrauded by a seller or other person on this website, please let us know, but please also report such dispute to applicable law enforcement authorities.

If we receive a notice of infringement in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. § 512, et seq. (the “Act”), we will take steps to remove or disable access to the allegedly infringing material, including any links thereto. We will terminate access for any user who is a repeat infringer.
