DEALCLOSET IS ONLY A VENUE.
Our site acts as an online marketplace for you to find and transact with other users showing products or services on the Service or otherwise associated with the Service.
You may provide or post content on the Service or view content posted by others on the Service;
Although, DealCloset may create and post content provided by our partners, DealCloset does not monitor such content.
You may act as a merchant or a prospective buyer and may enter into correspondence with, participate in promotions by, and/or conduct transactions with other users.
Any such content, correspondence, promotion, or transaction, including the delivery of all goods and services, and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with the foregoing, are solely between you and such other user.
DealCloset and any of DealCloset's Co-branded Partners, Licensees and Affiliates (collectively "DealCloset Partners") assume no liability, obligation or responsibility in connection with any of the foregoing.
In the event that you have a dispute with any merchant, user or third party, you release DealCloset (and our agents and employees) and DealCloset Partners 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 dispute.
If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code 1542, which says: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor."
Transactions between buyers and sellers may be completed through one of several methods depending upon the seller and DealCloset's site design:
Transaction Processing by the Seller.
For certain transactions users will either be directed to the seller's website for transaction processing or will be provided information to contact the seller outside the DealCloset site in order to complete a transaction.
DealCloset will not collect any credit card information from the buyer for such transactions and will collect any required fees directly from the seller.
Third Party Transaction Processing.
In other cases users may be referred to a third party such as an escrow service for transaction processing.
The terms of service for any such services will be established by the third party.
