  3. race-cars.com is a Venue. 3.1 race-cars.com is not a retailer, store, or "dealer". Although we are commonly referred to as "the race cars sales site" , it is important to realize that we are not a traditional retailer. Instead, our site acts as a venue to allow anyone to offer, sell, and buy racing cars and parts and related items. We are not involved in the actual transaction between buyers and sellers. As a result, we have no control over the quality, safety or legality of the items advertised, the truth or accuracy of the listings, the ability of sellers to sell items or the ability of buyers to buy items. We cannot ensure that a buyer or seller will actually complete a transaction.
    3.2 Identity Verification. race-cars.com cannot and does not confirm each user's purported identity. We encourage you to communicate directly with potential trading partners through the information available on our site. You may also wish to consider using a third party escrow service or services that provide additional user verification.

Because we are a venue, in the event that you have a dispute with one or more users, you release race-cars.com (and our officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) 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.
    3.4 Information Control. We do not control the information provided by other users that is made available through our system. You may find other user's information to be offensive, harmful, inaccurate, or deceptive. Please use caution, common sense, and practice safe trading when using our site. Please note that there are also risks of dealing with underage persons or people acting under false pretense. Additionally, there may also be risks dealing with international trade and foreign nationals.
