The Website is only a venue. Our site acts as the venue for buyers and sellers to solicit business. Although, we are involved in the actual transaction between buyers and sellers, however, 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 and do not control whether or not sellers will complete the sale of items they offer. We cannot and do not control whether or not buyers will complete the purchase of items they have bid on. In addition, note that there are risks of dealing with people acting under false pretense. Because we do not and cannot control the action of others, in the event that you have a dispute with one or more users, you release VetSquare.com Pte Ltd. (and our agents and employees and any third party partners and/or licensees of VetSquare.com Pte Ltd.) 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. For legal reasons, we cannot nor do we try to control the information provided by other users, which is made available through our system. We expect that you will use caution -- and common sense -- when using our site.
4.0 Transactions Between Buyers and Sellers

4.2 Users are hereby made aware that there may be risks of dealing with people acting under false pretences. Vetsquare.com uses several techniques to verify the accuracy of certain information our Users provide us when they register for membership service on the Site. However, because user verification on the Internet is difficult, Vetsquare.com cannot and does not confirm each User's purported identity (including, without limitation, Members). We encourage you to use various means, as well as common sense, to evaluate with whom you are dealing.
4.3 Each User acknowledges that it is fully assuming the risks of conducting any purchase and sale transactions in connection with using the Site or Services, and that it is fully assuming the risks of liability or harm of any kind in connection with subsequent activity of any kind relating to products or services that are the subject of transactions using the Site.

Such risks also include the risks that consumers, other purchasers, end-users of products or others claiming to have suffered injuries or harms relating to products originally obtained by Users of the Site as a result of purchase and sale transactions in connection with using the Site may suffer harms and/or assert claims arising from their use of such products. All of the foregoing risks are hereafter referred to as "Transaction Risks".
