If there is a conflict between these Terms and additional terms and conditions posted for a specific area of the Services, the latter terms and conditions will take precedence with respect to your use of or access to that area of the Services.

Operation of the Platform
As stated above, Trader makes available a platform or marketplace with related technology for Renters and Owners to meet online and arrange for rentals of RVs. Neither Trader nor SharePass is an owner or operator of RVs, and neither Trader nor SharePass owns, sells, resells, furnishes, provides, rents, re-rents, manages and/or controls RVs, or transportation or travel services. Neither Trader nor SharePass is or becomes a party to or other participant in any rental agreement or other contractual relationship between Users for renting an RV. Neither Trader nor SharePass endorses any Users or any RVs.
By using our Services, you authorize Trader and SharePass, directly or through third parties, to make any inquiries that they consider necessary to validate your identity and to collect information about you, including, without limitation, asking you for further information that will allow us to reasonably identify you, requiring you to take steps to confirm ownership of your email address or device, or verifying your information against third party databases or through other sources. We may also ask you for identifying documents to help us validate your identity. We reserve the right to close, suspend, or limit access to your Platform Account and/or the Services in the event we are unable to obtain or verify this information. However, we cannot confirm fully, and do not guarantee, any User’s purported identity or other information provided by such User. In addition, although these Terms require Users to provide accurate information, Users may, in spite of these Terms, provide inaccurate, incomplete, or intentionally misleading information, such as their personal information, their RV, or their purpose for seeking use of an RV. Neither Trader nor SharePass makes any representation or warranty about the accuracy or trustworthiness of any such User-provided information, and nothing in these Terms shall be deemed to create any duty or obligation on Trader or Sharepass to perform any assessment or validation of user-provided information. You are responsible for determining the suitability of others who you contact via the Services.
The Services can be used to facilitate the listing and renting of RVs. Such RVs are included in Listings on the Services by Owners. You may view Listings as an unregistered visitor to the Services; however, if you wish to book a RV or create a Listing, you must first register to create a Platform Account (defined below). In order to access certain features of the Services, and to book an RV or create a Listing, you must register to create an account (“Platform Account”). A Platform Account will be either a Dealer Center account for Users that are dealers of RVs, or a MyTrader account for non-dealer Users.
You may register to join the Services directly via the Services or by logging into your account with certain third-party social networking sites (including, but not limited to, Google and Facebook); each such account is defined herein as a “Third Party Account”. You have the ability to disable the connection between your Platform Account and your Third Party Accounts, at any time, by accessing the “Account” section of the Website. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE THIRD-PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR THIRD PARTY ACCOUNTS IS GOVERNED SOLELY BY YOUR AGREEMENT(S) WITH SUCH THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS.

Without limiting the foregoing, but excluding SharePass’ obligations, if any, to remit amounts due to Owners that SharePass collected from Renters under the Payment Terms and Conditions, you agree that the entire aggregate liability, if any, of Trader, SharePass, and any of their owners, affiliates, licensors and licensees for any kind of legal claim (whether in contract, tort or under any other legal theory) arising out of your access to or use of, or inability to use, this Website or any information, products or Services available through this Website, or our use of any User Content that you post on this Website or submit to us, will not exceed (i) if you are a Renter, the amounts you have paid or owe for RV rentals via the Services as a Renter in the twelve (12) month period before the event giving rise to the liability, (ii) if you are an Owner, the amounts remitted to you or owed to you by SharePass in the twelve (12) month period before the event giving rise to the liability, or (iii) one hundred U.S. dollars (US$100), if no such payments have been made, as applicable.
The limitations of damages set forth above are fundamental elements of the basis of the bargain between Trader and you. Because some jurisdictions may not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, some of these limitations may not apply to you.
You hereby release, discharge, covenant not to sue, and agree to indemnify, defend (at the indemnified party’s option), and hold harmless Trader, SharePass, any of the foregoing’s owners, affiliates, licensors and licensees, and any of the foregoing’s directors, officers, employees, advisors, and consultants, from and against any and all claims, costs, demands, losses, liabilities, damages, fees, and expenses, including, without limitation, attorney’s fees, arising from or relating to:
