Terms of Service 9/1/12
 
KeoPost is a service that helps connect people looking for help with those who are providing help. KeoPost is not a legally binding contract, we do not facilitate the transfer of funds - we do not litigate on the behalf of users and are not able to retrieve funds that were promised or bids that were accepted but never turned into jobs. KeoPost is a lot like the phone book in this manner, we do not provide any warranty for the businesses listed and encourage all users to exercise diligence in selecting a company, especially for those that have no physical address and or no feedback. We are here to empower people to make the right choices and we want to work to provide you the necessary tools but KeoPost assumes no legal responsibility for the transactions that take place and by using the service you agree to hold KeoPost free of any liability that may result from such transactions. 
 
If you have a dispute with one or more users, you release KeoPost, all its employees, investors and subsidiaries from claims, demands and damages. If you live in California you agree to waive California Civil Code §1542.
