Indie Mart is a venue to allow users, who comply with Indiemart's policies, to offer, sell and buy certain items posted on the Indiemart site. Indiemart is not directly involved in the transactions between buyers and sellers. In no event shall Indie Mart, or (as applicable) Indie Mart's subsidiaries, employees, directors or suppliers be liable for any damages whatsoever, or be responsible for another user's content, actions or inactions or items that they list or ship. The site is a venue to allow anyone to offer, sell, and buy just about anything, at anytime, from anywhere in a variety of pricing formats. Indiemart is not involved in the actual transaction between buyers and sellers. As a result, we have no control over the quality, legality, or safety of any items listed. Furthermore we can not guarantee the truth and accuracy of users' content or listings or the sellers' ability to sell items, ship them on time or the buyers' ability to pay for items. Indiemart can't ensure that a buyer and seller actually complete a transaction. As a result Indiemart does not transfer legal ownership of items from the seller to the buyer.
