Thank you for using AboutMatch. Following is an overview of how our matching service
works and the Terms and Conditions of Use.
AboutMatch services. AboutMatch's matching service matches you with suppliers of products or services that you are looking to purchase. We will attempt to match you with multiple suppliers who will compete for your business. We strive to enlist the highest quality suppliers but cannot guarantee suppliers' credentials.
Your Use of Service. AboutMatch's sole role is to connect you with the best-fit suppliers matching your requirements.
You decide whether to purchase from any of these suppliers. By lodging a questionnaire on our site, you agree that AboutMatch and our suppliers may
contact you. You should only use the matching service if you have legitimate purchasing needs, whether in the short or longer term.
Information you provide to us. You will be
asked to provide information regarding your requirements and contact
information to allow suppliers to respond to you directly. The information you
provide us must be complete and accurate.
Communications. AboutMatch may, from time to time, send you
communications related to your request. You may opt out of these communications
at any time.
AboutMatch Terms and Conditions
Updated: January 11, 2016
Terms and Conditions
Access to and use of the AboutMatch site is provided subject to the following terms
and conditions. Please read these terms and conditions carefully as your use of
the site and AboutMatch's services constitutes acceptance of these terms and
conditions. If you do not agree to the terms and conditions, do not use the
site or services. AboutMatch may, in its sole discretion, modify or revise these
terms and conditions at any time by updating this web page. To the extent
permitted by law, you are bound by any such modification or revision and should

AboutMatch provides a service that allows buyers to submit requests to be matched with
suppliers who can meet their needs. We strive to
make your experience a positive one.
It should be noted that AboutMatch may not always be able to match your requirements
with suppliers. While we seek to enlist only the highest quality suppliers, we
do not guarantee the quality or the credentials of the suppliers who receive
and respond to you. As AboutMatch is a conduit for matching buyers with
suppliers, we are not responsible for any transaction that may occur between
you and/or your company and a AboutMatch participating supplier. AboutMatch does not guarantee the quality, safety or legality of the information provided
or the products and services sold. You should exercise as much caution as you
would typically exercise with any purchase of products or services.
Should you have a dispute with any supplier, you must address such dispute with the
supplier directly. You hereby agree to release AboutMatch (and our employees
and agents) from any and all damages or claims (including consequential and
incidental damages) arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes
and your transactions with suppliers.
