The Audi A2 Owners' Club (A2OC) are committed to privacy and support current industry initiatives to preserve individual privacy rights on the Internet. Protecting your privacy on-line is an evolving area and this website will constantly evolve to meet these demands.
Our web pages utilise "cookies". A "cookie" is a small text file that may be used, for example, to collect information about web site activity. Some cookies and other technologies may serve to recall Personal Information previously indicated by a web user. Most browsers allow you to control cookies, including whether or not to accept them and how to remove them.

The A2OC relies upon donations to fund its running costs. It does not support advertising. However, many of our members provide products and services which may be of interest to other members.
In order to provide a fair environment for all A2OC members who provide potentially competitive services, the following rules apply:
The Audi A2 Owners' Club (A2OC) marketplace is intended to provide a fair trading environment for advertisers and buyers alike. This requires a number of ground rules to be respected by all of our users.
The A2OC does not accept responsibility for the products advertised within the Marketplace forums, or the information therein.
The A2OC or moderators cannot accept any liability for any losses incurred from the use of the Marketplace forums. If you are a victim of any activity you feel is illegal then please report this to the moderators who will endeavour to help you.
Anyone deliberately defrauding other advertisers will be dealt with severely. We encourage defrauded advertisers to seek assistance from the police and we will actively assist the authorities to secure a conviction.
The A2OC will cooperate with the police and trading standards if they suspect someone to have advertised an item illegally or contravening the Sale of Goods act. We will retain personal details of advertisers which may be disclosed to the police and Trading Standards for the purposes of preventing and detecting crime or to a user with a justified complaint about a vehicle.
Advertising stolen goods will result in an instant and permanent forum ban.
Any user found to have misdescribed a car (or sold an unroadworthy one) will result in a permanent ban.
Members must not make derogatory or disparaging comments about an advertiser's asking price or description in the public forum. If you have an issue with the seller, it is suggested you make contact via private message. Alternatively contact the site moderators using the link at the bottom of the page.
The A2OC does not accept any responsibility for items sold through the Marketplace which are subsequently sold at a higher price elsewhere (e.g. eBay). Advertisers should resolve their grievances independently with the original purchaser.
The A2OC operates an infraction mechanism. An infraction point is give when a member contravenes one of the forum rules. This includes:
Members who accumulate 3 infraction points will be subject to an automatic 7 day ban. Members who accumulate 4 infraction points will be subject to a permanent ban.
The A2OC is a not-for-profit organisation. As a result it relies upon the generosity of its donors to help cover its running costs.
Members can donate at any time using the Donate button in the Navigation bar. All donations are handled by PayPal and are subject to the high levels of security.
Club donors receive the following benefits:
Donations can be made for any amount above £2.
