The Country Marketplace is a Venue

The Country Marketplace acts as a venue to allow users who comply with The Country Marketplace’ policies to offer, sell and buy certain goods within a fixed-price format. The Country Marketplace is not directly involved in the transaction between buyers and sellers. As a result, The Country Marketplace has no control over the quality, safety, morality or legality of any aspect of the items listed, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of sellers to sell items or the ability of buyers to pay for items. The Country Marketplace does not pre-screen users or the content or information provided by users. The Country Marketplace cannot ensure that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction.

Consequently, The Country Marketplace does not transfer legal ownership of items from the seller to the buyer.

The Country Marketplace cannot guarantee the true identity, age, and nationality of a user. The Country Marketplace encourages you to communicate directly with potential transaction partners through the tools available on the Site. You may also wish to consider using a third-party escrow service or services that provide additional user verification.

You agree that The Country Marketplace is a venue and as such is not responsible or liable for any content, for example, data, text, information, usernames, graphics, images, photographs, profiles, audio, video, items, and links posted by you, other users, or outside parties on The Country Marketplace.
