You will not hold Shaycom responsible for other users' actions or inactions, including
things they post. You understand and agree that the Web Site is a venue for sellers

of listings, the ability of sellers to sell items, the ability of buyers to pay
for items, or that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction.
Shaycom does not transfer legal ownership of items from the seller to the buyer,

affected his settlement with the debtor."

claim, suit, loss, liability or damage, including reasonable attorneys' fees, whether
