1. Fleababy is a Venue

Fleababy acts as a venue to allow users who comply with Fleababy's policies to offer, sell and buy certain goods within a fixed-price format. Fleababy is not directly involved in the transaction between buyers and sellers. As a result, Fleababy has no control over the quality, safety, morality or legality of any aspect of the items listed, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of sellers to sell items or the ability of buyers to pay for items. Fleababy does not pre-screen users or the content or information provided by users. Fleababy cannot ensure that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction.
Consequently, Fleababy does not transfer legal ownership of items from the seller to the buyer.
