Identity Verification and Third Party Content
The Sisterbuzz Marketplace acts only as a marketing platform and technical interface between its users and does not itself verify the qualifications of users, nor does it evaluate or control in any ongoing manner exchanges between users. Any opinions or statements expressed by a user are of those of the user alone, and are not to be attributed to SisterBuzz. SisterBuzz cannot and does not assume responsibility for the accuracy, completeness, safety, reliability, timeliness, innocuousness, legality or applicability of anything said, written, posted, displayed or otherwise made available by any user.
You understand that you use SisterBuzz at your own risk.
Please use caution, common sense, and practice safe trading when using the Marketplace. Please note that there are also risks of dealing with underage persons or people acting under false pretense, or being inadvertently exposed to offensive content. Additionally, there may also be risks dealing with international trade and foreign nationals. By using the Marketplace, you agree to accept such risks and that SisterBuzz (and our officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) is not responsible for any and all acts or omissions of users on the Marketplace.
SisterBuzz may verify the accuracy of the information users provide when they register on the Marketplace. However, because user verification on the Internet is difficult, SisterBuzz cannot and does not confirm each user’s purported identity. Thus, Sisterbuzz has established a user-initiated feedback system to help you evaluate with whom you are dealing. Communicating directly with potential transaction partners can help with user verification, but we encourage you to act with safety in mind during such communications. You may also wish to consider using a third party escrow service or services that provide additional user verification.
