2 The Marketplace is a Venue.
Venue: The Marketplace is a venue that permits our users to display, offer, buy and sell products (“Items”) in accordance with these Terms. The Marketplace is merely a facilitator between a buyer and seller. The MarketPlace does not own or otherwise have possession of the Items offered for sale and consequently, The MarketPlace does not transfer legal ownership of Items from seller to buyer. Further, The MarketPlace does not have any control over any aspect of the Items listed, their quality or legitimacy or the ability of sellers to sell and deliver the Items or the payment for such Items by buyers. The MarketPlace does not guarantee that any buyer or seller will complete a transaction.
Buyers not Known: The users who purchase Items on our website are not known to the MarketPlace and thus we do not know, and cannot guarantee, the true identity or any other personally identifiable information of any such users.
Diligence: You acknowledge and agree that the Marketplace is a venue and as such LIFC MarketPlace LLC is not responsible or liable for any content posted by our users, including you, or any of the Items purchased or sold through our website. If you have any reason to believe that an Item is not truthfully represented or if you have any doubt of the legitimacy of buyer or seller in any transaction, you are advised to conduct sufficient diligence to your satisfaction before proceeding with any transaction. Your access and use of our website and your participation in any transaction to buy or sell Items through our website is at your risk. The MarketPlace is not responsible for, and will not facilitate, any return of or refunds for any Items purchased on our website.
Item Availability: Additionally, you acknowledge that Items described in our website may or may not be available in all countries or regions of the world, may be available under different trademarks in different countries and, where applicable, may be approved or cleared by a government regulatory body for sale or use with different indications and restrictions in different countries.
