12. Hauling Buddies is a Neutral Venue
Hauling Buddies is not a Transportation Service Provider or Shipper. Our website acts as a venue where Shippers and Transportation Service Providers can interact and enter into agreements. Hauling Buddies is not a party to any shipping agreement made between Hauling Buddies users via the Hauling Buddies software platform. As a result, we have no control over the quality, safety, or legal aspects of the transactions that take place on our website. Hauling Buddies does not prequalify or validate the claims or qualifications of Transportation Service Providers. Hauling Buddies does not endorse, recommend, or refer any specific Transportation Service Provider or Shipper, nor does Hauling Buddies have any control or influence over actions or decisions made by users of the Service. All users of the Hauling Buddies software platform make their own decisions and You acknowledge and agree that we are not in any way arranging transportation or shipping or logistics services on your behalf. Because we are not involved in the actual transaction between Shippers and Transportation Service Providers, we have no control over the accuracy of listings, the ability of Transportation Service Providers to transport items, or the ability of Shippers to send items. We cannot ensure the Shipper or Transportation Service Provider will actually complete a shipment. We cannot and do not guarantee the ability of users to complete or fulfill any services booked through the Hauling Buddies software platform. Furthermore, due to the difficulty of individual authentication, especially on the Internet, we cannot and do not guarantee the verification of any user’s identity. Any identity verification methods we employ are strictly on a best efforts basis and should not be solely relied upon by our users. You acknowledge and agree that any and all communications, correspondence, verbal or written or by electronic means, or any warranties or representations made with regard to the arrangement of transportation services are not provided by us and are specifically and solely between You and the other user.
