Notwithstanding the foregoing, you acknowledge that Procurated is under no obligation to edit or modify any information available in any Reviews or decide any dispute or disagreement between the posters and shall have no liability to you for any content posted in a Review. Procurated does not assume liability for Reviews or for any claims for economic loss resulting from such ratings and reviews.

6. USE OF MESSAGING. Procurated makes available to the users of its Services an electronic tool that allows for the sending and receiving of messages between Users and posters of Reviews. Through this tool, Users can ask posters of Reviews questions and request additional information; subject to your privacy settings, users may be able to chat with posters anonymously. However, Procurated reserves the right to terminate, at its sole discretion, any messaging session established between a User and a poster of the Review if the User acts inappropriately or in a manner not consistent with the purpose of the electronic tool, or shares any inappropriate or improper content.

User further agrees to keep confidential all messages with other Users on the Procurated Website.
