Parts.com® is Only a Venue

Parts.com® serves as a marketplace for purchasers of automotive parts and related products ("Buyers") and wholesalers and suppliers of automotive parts and related products ("Sellers") to come together and engage in the trade of automotive parts and related products. We are not involved in the actual transactions between Buyers and Sellers. As a result, we exercise no control over the quality, safety or legality of the products offered for sale, the truth or accuracy of any listings or representations posted by Buyers or Sellers, the ability of Sellers to sell or ship items or the ability of Buyers to buy items. We cannot, and do not, control whether or not Sellers will complete the sale of items they offer or Buyers will complete the purchase of, or pay for, items they have ordered.

We do not verify, guarantee, warranty, or in any other way, the accuracy of the information that we receive from Buyers or Sellers. All information, prices and availability are subject to change without notice. We are not responsible for breach of contract or any intentional or negligent action on the part of Buyers or Sellers that result in any loss, damage, delay, injury, death, or property damage. Because we are not involved in sales through Parts.com®, in the event that you have a dispute with a Buyer or Seller, you hereby release us, our agents, subsidiaries, parent companies, employees, officers, directors, and assigns from claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of, or in any way connected with, such disputes.
