serve as a venue for potential buyers and sellers of services and/or products (such
sellers being collectively referred to herein as service providers). Our role is
strictly limited to that of a venue provider. As such, we are not involved in dealings
you may have with service providers and have no control over: the propriety of the
transaction; the quality, safety or legality of the professional services sought,
provided or advertised (if any); the truth or accuracy of the information you may receive
from other service providers or users, even if the information is delivered through us or
our equipment; whether the service provider with whom you are dealing will be able to carry
out their obligations to you; or whether the transaction will actually be completed.
VAHeatingandAir is not your broker or agent, and is not a third-party beneficiary or guarantor of
performance with respect to any transaction or agreement that you may have with other users
or service providers. We recommend that you carefully review and consider the terms and
conditions of every transaction before obligating yourself and, where appropriate, seek and
obtain professional advice. No service provider will at any time represent that VAHeatingandAir endorses
a service provider or its services. Any disputes between a buyer and a service provider should be
handled by the service provider.
