3 Your Safety and Interactions with Other Users

5 Warnings for Users
5.1 Noc Noc provides a mechanism for users who want to meet, connect with businesses and buy and sell items. Noc Noc does not take part in the sale of items other than providing our System as a platform to do so for our users. If an offer is accepted by a seller, a contract of sale will be formed between the buyer and seller directly. We do not act as agent for either party and do not participate in any sale or transaction between you and other members. This specific part of the System is merely a means by which a buyer and seller record their transaction.
5.2 Noc Noc gives no undertakings, representations, or warranties in relation to items sold or listed on the System including:
5.2.1 About ownership of any item;
5.2.2 As to the content, safety, description, worthiness, quality, or legality of the items listed on the System;
5.2.3 As to the accuracy or truth of listings;
5.2.4 That any item will meet your requirements or expectations; or
5.2.5 About the ability of users to complete a transaction, including credit card transactions.

You agree that your account will be subject to this automatic renewal feature. If you do not wish your account to renew automatically, or if you want to change or terminate your subscription, please log in and go to "My Profile" on the System and follow instructions. If you cancel your subscription, you may use your subscription until the end of your then-current subscription term and your subscription will not be renewed after your then-current term expires.
13.4 You may edit your payment method information by entering the System and using "My Profile". If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not edit your payment method information or cancel your subscription, you remain responsible for any uncollected amounts and authorize us to continue billing the payment method, as it may be updated. This may result in a change to your payment billing dates.

14.1 Noc Noc may at its discretion add new product features or enhancements from time to time as well as remove some features, and if these actions do not materially affect your rights or obligations we may not provide you with notice before removal.
