PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF USE ("AGREEMENT" OR "TERMS OF USE") CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THE WEBSITE, MOBILE APPLICATIONS, AND SERVICES OFFERED BY LENDOGRAM, INC. AND ITS SUBSIDIARIES (COLLECTIVELY, "LENDOGRAM"). THIS AGREEMENT SETS FORTH THE LEGALLY BINDING TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR YOUR USE OF THE WEBSITE AT WWW.LENDOGRAM.COM (THE "SITE"), MOBILE APPLICATIONS, AND SERVICES PROVIDED BY LENDOGRAM (COLLECTIVELY, THE “SERVICES”).

By using the Services in any manner, including but not limited to visiting or browsing the Site, you (the "user" or "you") agree to be bound by this Agreement, including those additional terms and conditions and policies referenced herein and/or available by hyperlink. This Agreement applies to all users of the Services, including without limitation users who are vendors, customers, merchants, contributors of content, information and other materials or services on the Site.

1. Lendogram is a Venue

Lendogram acts as a venue to allow users who comply with Lendogram’s policies to lend and borrow goods amongst each other. Lendogram is not directly involved in the transaction between lenders and borrowers. As a result, Lendogram has no control over the quality, safety, morality or legality of any aspect of the items listed or the truth or accuracy of the listings. Lendogram does not pre-screen users (except for services that require an application) or the content or information provided by users. Lendogram cannot ensure that a lender or borrower will actually complete a transaction.

Consequently, Lendogram does not transfer legal ownership of items from the lender to the borrower.

Lendogram cannot guarantee the true identity, age, and nationality of a user. Lendogram encourages you to lend and borrow with users you know.

You agree that Lendogram is a venue and as such is not responsible or liable for any content, for example, data, text, information, usernames, graphics, images, photographs, profiles, audio, video, items, and links posted by you, other users, or outside parties on Lendogram. You use the Lendogram service at your own risk.
