10.2 You are also responsible for making your own decision and exercising your own judgement regarding whether to trust any other registered user you encounter on our App (including without limitation whether to contact, enter into discussions with, or make arrangements to meet any other registered user), and we do not accept any liability to you or any third party in this respect.
