We publish reviews, ratings and postings of third parties on the Properties and through certain Services without verification, vetting or endorsement. We cannot guarantee that these reviews, ratings or postings are accurate, or that the persons submitting or responding to them are not acting under false pretenses. We do not direct or control what Advertisers or other third parties post, do or say in connection with the Properties, Services, or Content, and we are not responsible for any of their actions or conduct (online or offline) or any content or materials they share. FDNG has no responsibility or liability for any damages, losses, costs, expenses or injuries that you may incur in connection with items or services listed for sale by any Advertiser or any other third party or events or groups listed by any Advertiser or any third party, or reviews, ratings or postings made by any person, on the Properties or Services.
