2.1 You are exclusively responsible when interacting with other Members. Our Services provide a platform for members to list their shipping requests, items they wish to have delivered to them, or to identify items to be shipped on their commute path. PeerShip is not a party to, has no involvement or interest in, makes no representations or warranties as to, and has no responsibility or liability with respect to any communications, transactions, interactions, disputes or any relations whatsoever between you and any other member, person or organization. We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor interactions between you and other members of our Services. PeerShip offers you a platform to identify requests and to interact with other members, and we urge you to use good judgment and keep safety in mind at all times when you use our Services.
2.2 Identity Verification. We do not investigate or verify any member's criminal background at the current time, nor any information members may submit to the Services. We encourage you to take precautions when interacting with other members, particularly when meeting a stranger in person.
2.3 Release. Because our Services are merely a platform, in the event that you have a dispute with one or more members, you release us (and our officers, directors, members, employees, agents and affiliates) from claims, demands and damages (actual, compensatory, liquidation, punitive, nominal and/or restitutionary) 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. You also understand and agree that any action or inaction by PeerShip or any of our officers, directors, members, employees, agents and affiliates to prevent, restrict, redress or regulate content, or to implement other enforcement measures against any content, conduct or potential violation of these Terms is undertaken voluntarily and in good faith, and you expressly agree that we shall not be to you or anyone else for any action or inaction to prevent, restrict, redress, or regulate content, or to implement other enforcement measures against any content, conduct or potential violation of these Terms. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code 1542, which says: "A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor."

You shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless PeerShip (and each of our officers, directors, members, employees, agents and affiliates) from any claim, demand, action, damage, loss, cost or expense, including without limitation reasonable attorneys' fees, arising out of or relating to (a) your use of our Services; (b) any Member Content or Submissions you provide; (c) your violation of these Terms; (d) your violation of any rights of another; or (e) your conduct in connection with the Services.

ARBITRATION PREVENTS YOU FROM SUING IN COURT OR FROM HAVING A JURY TRIAL. You and PeerShip agree that you will notify each other of any dispute within thirty (30) days of when it arises, that you will attempt informal resolution prior to any demand for arbitration, that any arbitration will occur in San Diego, California and that arbitration will be conducted confidentially by a single arbitrator in accordance with the Rules of the American Arbitration Association. You and PeerShip also agree that the state or federal courts in San Diego County, California have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals of an arbitration award and over any suit between the parties not subject to arbitration. Other than class procedures and remedies discussed below, the arbitrator has the authority to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court.
WHETHER THE DISPUTE IS HEARD IN ARBITRATION OR IN COURT, YOU AND PEERSHIP WILL NOT COMMENCE AGAINST THE OTHER A CLASS ACTION, CLASS ARBITRATION OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING.
