We are only a conduit and organizer of information supplied by third party service providers. We are not ourselves the provider of any services or utilities. We are not liable for any variances in quality from the information supplied to us by these third parties.

We are not an agent, broker, or legal representative of any service provider, and are not licensed as such. We are not authorized to act on behalf of any service provider or any customer, or to bind any of the same to any legal obligations, other than as provided in these Terms.

Before deciding to hire any service provider, you must rely solely on your own evaluation of the service provider , including track record, qualifications, credentials, reviews, account information, representations made and such other material facts as you, in your sole discretion, deem relevant.

When you hire a service provider, the contract for that service will be between you and the service provider, and not us.
