III. Conditions of Eligibility.
Our services are available and should only be used by individuals and legal entities that can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. This site is intended for use by individuals 18 years of age or older. Our services are not available to individuals who have been temporarily or indefinitely suspended from use of QCQA.com.

Our services merely enable Buyers and Sellers to locate one another. QCQA.com is not involved in the transactions between Seller and Buyers and, therefore, QCQA.com does not have any control over the quality, safety or legality of the products and/or services advertised for sale or the truth or accuracy of any user's products and/or service listings or representations whether express or implied. QCQA.com cannot ensure that a Buyer or Seller has the ability to complete a transaction. It does not guarantee any sales leads or that any match will be sufficient to meet your needs. QCQA.com with respect to any goods or services purchased, sold or obtained through the site or any transactions entered into through the site, makes no endorsement or Warranty. QCQA.com is not a guarantor of performance with respect to any agreement between a Buyer and Seller.
Because QCQA.com is not and cannot be involved in the dealings between users, in the event that a user has a dispute with another User (whether Buyer or Seller), you hereby release QCQA.com and its Partners, its directors, officers, employees and agents against any and all claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of any nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed in any way connected with such disputes.

c. Safe Business Practice.
Due to the difficulty in user authentication and accreditation on the Internet, there may be risks associated with the use of our services. QCQA.com understands that you as a User of our site wish to avoid these kinds of risks. QCQA.com encourages Buyers and Sellers to engage in direct communications after a Buyer requests contact with a Seller for the purpose of independently evaluating, verifying and accrediting each other. If you have concerns about the party with whom you are dealing, please consider the use of a third party escrow service or services that provide additional verification of third parties.
