Just a "matchmaking", "clearing house" service

In response to 141994: Konaweb VRBO, posted by Linda JS on Thursday, 26 April 2018, at 4:25 a.m.

I would think that if Konaweb merely acted as a forum where renters and rentees can initially meet up, then take their biz dealings off-line, there would be no liability attached. The use of the KW forum to go further than the initial intro of potential renters and rentees could cause problems.

As long as there is no money changing hands with Konaweb, not even "finder's fee" or any sort of commish based on successful transactions, and suitable disclaimers prominently shown indicating that KW makes no representations as to the suitability or fitness of any rentals shown, nor assumes any liability for any problems resulting from the use of this service, KW would be out of danger.
