We may limit or terminate our service, remove hosted content and take technical and legal steps to keep users off CHOONE if we think that they are creating problems or acting inconsistently with the letter or spirit of our policies. However, whether we decide to take any of these steps, remove hosted content or keep a user off CHOONE or not, we do not accept any liability for monitoring CHOONE or for unauthorized or unlawful content on CHOONE or use of CHOONE by users.

This includes posting an Ad, replying to an Ad, posting in the forums, etc. We may charge fees for premium services such as featuring your Ad in the Top Ads section.

If you don't, we may limit your ability to use the services.

CHOONE Safety Tips:

While most individuals who use CHOONE have success with buying, selling, renting or connecting with others, from time to time we do get reports of people attempting to scam or defraud our users. We have found that one of the best ways to address this problem is toensure that all transactions take place locally and in-person. Remember that CHOONE is a local classifieds web site and ads are not reviewed before they go live on the site.
