Prohibited Product Policy

 Lost Universe is a curated marketplace. This means that once products have been created by Sellers, they are approved by Lost Universe prior to being published on site. For various reasons, we prohibit certain types of items from being sold by Sellers on Lost Universe. Some items present possible legal risks to Lost Universe, our Sellers and our customers. Other items are incongruous with our values and proposition. Some items may simply risk harm to our customers. Being familiar with this policy will help prevent you, the Seller, from creating products which are later rejected for Listing. This policy explains what is prohibited or restricted on Lost Universe.

 

If a product is defined as a Prohibited Product, it must not be sold on the Lost Universe Marketplace. Lost Universe reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to declare a product as prohibited. Sellers deemed to violate this policy can be subject to immediate account suspension or termination (in accordance with our Marketplace Terms of Use). This policy is a part of our Marketplace Terms of Use. By selling on Lost Universe, you’re agreeing to this policy and our Terms of Use.

  • Any product that is illegal to sell in the United Kingdom and any other location.
