Service Exchange does not have any obligation to screen any Listing, or to include any Listing in its search results or other listings, and may exclude or remove any Listing from the Site for any or no reason. We cannot confirm the accuracy or completeness of any Listing or other information submitted by any user, including the identity of such user. Service Exchange assumes no responsibility, and disclaims all liability, for the content, accuracy, completeness, legality, reliability, or availability of any Listing.
