We develop, maintain, and license proprietary software to facilitate transactions and provide a variety of services to help our clients conduct business. As a result, we have no control over the quality, safety, or legality of the items advertised, the truth or accuracy of the listings, and the ability of the sellers to sell items.

We use many techniques to verify the accuracy of the information users provide us when registering on the Site. However, because user verification on the Internet is difficult, NetWaiter cannot and does not confirm each user's purported identity.

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.”
