Instead, our site acts as a venue or portal that allows anyone to offer, sell, and buy just about anything, at anytime, from anywhere, in a variety of formats, including a fixed price commonly referred to as an "Online Shopping." We are not involved in the actual transaction between buyers and sellers. As a result, we have no control over the quality, safety or legality of the items advertised, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of sellers to sell items or the ability of buyers to buy items. We cannot ensure that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction.

3.4 Information Control. We do not control the information provided by other users, which is made available through our system. You may find other user's information to be offensive, harmful, inaccurate, or deceptive. Please use caution, common sense, and practice safe trading when using our site. Please note that there are also risks of dealing with underage persons or people acting under false pretense. Additionally, there may also be risks dealing with international trade and foreign nationals.
