1. VERIFIED HONEST IS ONLY A VENUE.
The Websites act as online marketplaces for you to find and transact with merchants or providers of services that advertise and/or sell products or services on the Websites.

Some merchants or service providers conduct transactions through their own stores or through their own application processes. In these cases, you will be directed to the merchant's or service provider's website (such as by following a link from the Websites to the merchant's or service provider's website) or the merchant or service provider will contact you. Any transaction, application or other interaction between you and the merchant or service provider on or through the merchant’s or service provider’s website, offline store or application process will be pursuant to any terms or agreements made available by such merchant or service provider.
In some cases, we provide merchants with the ability to create an online store through which they advertise their products. We refer to these merchant stores as "Verified Honest Stores". We provide payment processing services for merchants who use Verified Honest Stores (the “Stores Processing Service”), but all sales are sales by the merchant. You acknowledge and agree that Verified Honest shall establish the terms, policies or other agreements regarding use of the Stores Processing Service for completion of any such transaction, and you agree to be bound by such terms, policies or agreements. Unless otherwise agreed to in writing by Verified Honest, Verified Honest does not undertake any obligation or liability in respect of the Stores Processing Service.
In all cases, transactions are entered into between you and the merchant or service provider, and neither Verified Honest nor any of its co-branded partners, licensees or affiliates (collectively "Partners") shall assume any liability, obligation or responsibility in connection with any transaction between you and the users of the Website.
By participating in any transaction involving or resulting from your use of the Service, you acknowledge and agree that this Agreement and any terms of service or other policies established by third parties shall govern all transactions in which you participate through the Service.
Verified Honest and its Partners may provide links to external websites or resources (which are not the Websites) for your convenience and reference only.
