USER RESPONSIBILITY

Site Merely a Venue. Our Services do not include the introduction of users to one another. Our Site is merely a venue for users to connect with each other, learn about one another and, if they wish, arrange deliveries, rewards, stays, meetings, and interactions with one another. As a result, we have no control over, or responsibility for, the contact between users, the conduct of our users, or the truth or accuracy of the information that users post on the Site.

Identity Verification. Because user verification on the internet is difficult, we cannot and do not confirm any user's purported identity. Although we provide tools intended to assist you, such as a reference system and internal messaging system, you are solely responsible for using other means to determine the identity and suitability of those with whom you connect. We do not endorse any persons who use or register for our Services. We do not investigate any user's reputation, conduct, morality, criminal background, or verify the information such user may submit to the Site. Also, because our reference system is generated by users, we can make no representation whatsoever about the validity, accuracy, or adequacy of the system and do not independently verify or assess the "feedback". We encourage you to communicate directly with (and independently evaluate) potential local hosts, organisations and travellers through the tools available on the Site.

Your Experience with Other Users. You are solely responsible for your interactions with other users of our Services. We will not be responsible for any damage or harm resulting from your interactions with other users of our Services. We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor interactions between you and other users of our Services, and to take any other action in good faith to restrict access to, or the availability of, any material that we or another user of our Services may consider obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, violent, harassing, discriminatory or otherwise objectionable.

Release. Because we view our Site as merely a venue, we take no responsibility whatsoever in the event that you have a dispute with one or more users. In any event and regardless of the characterisation of our Site, you release us (and our officers, directors, stockholders, employees, independent contractors, agents, advisers and affiliates) from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes.

Release in relation to illegal activities. Because we view our Site as merely a venue, we take no responsibility whatsoever in the event that you are involved in an illegal activity. You are solely responsible for ensuring that any requests made or deliveries accepted do not breach any local and/or international laws. We strongly advise against the request and/or delivery of items where the contents of these items cannot be confirmed. We take no responsibility for the outcomes of request and/or delivery of such items. You release us from claims and damages of every kind and nature arising out of or in any way connected to such requests or deliveries.
