Visitors, subscribers, members, or customers who use any site provided bulletin boards or other public forums, such as chat rooms or blogs, do so at their own risk. You may not assume that the site monitors these services or protects you in any manner from information you post publicly or share with anyone else via these services.

Customer Satisfaction

At Maine Niche, we seek merchants that provide consumers with quality products and competitive values. When you purchase an item from a Merchant within the Merchant Showcase pages, that transaction is between you and the merchant. The merchants are responsible for order fulfillment and each of them has their own shipping, return and merchant policy. We encourage each of them to list these policies on a specific page for easy access. If you have any questions before or after you have placed an order that are not clearly answered in the merchant’s Policy and Terms, please contact the merchant directly.

You are asked to contact us directly should you have concerns with additional services we provide. It is our priority to ensure our customers are satisfied with services provided directly or indirectly by Maine Niche.
