CarMax designed its Services to meet your car-shopping needs by providing you with accurate and up-to-date information about CarMax's inventory and offerings across the country. Despite our best efforts, however, it is inevitable that some inaccuracies may occasionally be present, including, without limitation, incorrect information or statements relating to prices for or features/accessories on particular vehicles, the availability of credit, the terms of any such credit, and any features that may estimate credit terms. Additionally, the color and general appearance of vehicles in photographs may appear differently in person depending on your device settings. CarMax does not guarantee the accuracy of such information. All vehicles are subject to prior sale and may not be available when you are ready for purchase. Further, CarMax reserves the right to change productor credit pricing and specifications, as well as the terms of our guarantees and warranties, without notice. You agree that reliance on the vehicle listings and descriptions on the Services is at your own risk. For this reason, please contact the store location where a vehicle is located to confirm the accuracy of the contents of our Services before you visit that store location.

CarMax will respond appropriately to notices of alleged copyright infringement that comply with the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”), as set forth below.
If you believe that your work has been reproduced or used on, or distributed via, the Services in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, you may notify CarMax’s copyright agent in writing via fax, email, or first class U.S. mail that includes all of the below content (as required by 17 U.S.C. § 512). The below procedure is exclusively for notifying CarMax that your copyrighted material may have been infringed. We do not and will not make any legal decisions about the validity of your claim of infringement or the possible defenses to a claim. When a clear and valid notice is received pursuant to the guidelines set forth below, CarMax will respond by either taking down the allegedly infringing content or blocking access to it. CarMax may contact you to request additional information.
Notices and counter-notices are legal notices distinct from regular activities or communications on or via the Services. We may publish or share them with third parties in our sole discretion (in addition to producing them pursuant to a subpoena or other legal discovery request).
The DMCA notice must contain the following information:
CarMax will only respond to DMCA Notices that it receives by mail, e-mail or facsimile at the addresses below:
12800 Tuckahoe Creek Parkway
Richmond, VA 23238
Attn: Legal Department/Infringement Notice
It is often difficult to determine if your copyright has been infringed. CarMax may elect to not respond to DMCA Notices that do not substantially comply with all of the foregoing requirements, and CarMax may elect to remove allegedly infringing material that comes to its attention via notices that do not substantially comply with the DMCA.
Please note that the DMCA provides that any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be subject to liability.
We may send the information that you provide in your notice to the person who provided the allegedly infringing work. That person may elect to send us a DMCA Counter-Notification.
Without limiting CarMax’s other rights, CarMax may, in appropriate circumstances, terminate a repeat infringer’s access to the Services.
If access on the Services to a work that you submitted to CarMax is disabled or the work is removed as a result of a DMCA Notice, and if you believe that the disabled access or removal is the result of mistake or misidentification, then you may send us a DMCA Counter-Notification to the addresses above. Your DMCA Counter-Notification should contain the following information:
Please note that the DMCA provides that any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification may be subject to liability.
If we receive a DMCA Counter-Notification, then we may replace the material that we removed (or stop disabling access to it) in not less than 10 and not more than 14 business days following receipt of the DMCA Counter-Notification. However, we will not do this if we first receive notice at the addresses above that the party who sent us the DMCA Copyright Infringement Notice has filed a lawsuit asking a court for an order restraining the person who provided the material from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on the Services. You should also be aware that we may forward the DMCA Counter-Notification to the party who sent us the DMCA Copyright Infringement Notice.
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY. IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT. By using or accessing the Services, you agree to this Disputes Section. Arbitration is a way of resolving disputes before one or more neutral persons, instead of having a trial in court before a judge and/or jury.
YOU AGREE THAT TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW:
(1) ANY AND ALL CLAIMS (DEFINED BELOW) WILL BE RESOLVED INDIVIDUALLY IN THE FORUM DESIGNATED IN THIS DISPUTES SECTION, WITHOUT RESORT TO ANY FORM OF CLASS ACTION. YOU GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE AS A REPRESENTATIVE OR MEMBER OF A CLASS IN A CLASS ACTION (“CLASS ACTION WAIVER”) AND
(2) IF YOU OR WE CHOOSE ARBITRATION, THEN ARBITRATION SHALL BE MANDATORY AND:
(A) ANY CLAIM WILL BE DECIDED BY ARBITRATION AND NOT IN COURT OR BY A JURY TRIAL;
(B) DISCOVERY AND RIGHTS TO APPEAL ARE LIMITED BY THE ARBITRATION RULES OF THE ARBITRATION ADMINISTRATOR; AND
(C) OTHER RIGHTS THAT YOU OR WE WOULD HAVE IN COURT MAY NOT BE AVAILABLE IN ARBITRATION.
Arbitration of a Claim must comply with this Arbitration Provision and the applicable rules and procedures of the arbitration Administrator. Arbitration is not mandatory for an individual Claim that you or we may choose to bring in small claims court or the state’s equivalent court, if any. If that Claim is transferred, removed or appealed to a different court, you or we then may choose arbitration.
What follows applies only to your use of our Services and does not affect any rights you have under the Uniform Commercial Code, applicable laws addressing products liability or rights you have pursuant to our Limited Warranty or return policy.
THE SERVICES AND ALL CONTENT ARE PROVIDED ON AN "AS IS" "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS AND WITHOUT REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO THE OPERATION OF THE SERVICES OR THE CONTENT.

SOME STATES AND JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU, AND YOU MAY HAVE ADDITIONAL RIGHTS. THE FOREGOING SHALL BE ENFORCEABLE TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.

CarMax recognizes the serious nature of the crimes of human trafficking and slavery. CarMax has taken and will take every reasonable effort to ensure that its supply chain is free of products that are tainted by human trafficking. Because all of the vehicles sold by CarMax in California are used vehicles, and all of the replacement parts CarMax uses in its reconditioning process are purchased from other retailers, CarMax believes that it has taken all necessary steps to audit and reasonably mitigate the risk that its products are tainted by the crimes of human trafficking and slavery.
