Please review the following terms and conditions carefully. This agreement is a legally binding contract between you ("You" or "Your") and HomeTracker, LP. ("HomeTracker," "We," "Us," or "Our") regarding Your access to and use of the HomeTracker Web site (the "Site"). HomeTracker offers businesses (the "Client") access to certain tools and services accessible through the Site, including, but not limited to, real estate asset management and communication among Client staff, contractors, brokers, and lenders nationwide (the "Service").
Two types of users may access the Site and use the Service - browsers on the Site that do not have access to password-restricted information, and Clients. An "Employee" is an employee, agent, independent contractor, subcontractor, or affiliate of Client. If you are an Employee, since You are accessing the Site on behalf of Client, You also agree to the terms and conditions outlined herein on behalf of Client. Our password-restricted services are only available to Clients who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. Without limiting the foregoing, our password-restricted services are not available to minors or to temporarily or indefinitely suspended HomeTracker Clients. If you do not qualify, do not use our services.
If you are not a Client, You may use the Site only for informational purposes, but may not receive a user name or password, or access password-restricted information or receive confidential information.
HomeTracker reserves the right to change these terms and conditions and/or the Service from time to time at its sole discretion by posting such revised terms and conditions on the Site. Your continued use of the Site following any such change constitutes Your acknowledgement of such change and Your agreement to follow and be bound by the modified terms and conditions, if any.
2. Password and Security
To access and use the Service, you must be authorized by your System Administrator. If You are an employee, You will receive instructions regarding Your user identification and password from the System Administrator. The System Administrator has the authority to change, delete or otherwise restrict Your access to and/or use of the Service. HomeTracker shall not be responsible for any decisions made by the System Administrator regarding Your access to and use of the Site and/or Service.
Prior to your first access of the Site, You will be provided with a password by Your System Administrator. Upon your initial login, you should change that password to further protect the security of your access/use. Since HomeTracker does not track or know Your password, You should contact Your System Administrator if you have any other problems or questions about Your password.
We use many techniques to identify users when they register on our Site. However, because user verification on the Internet is difficult, HomeTracker cannot and does not confirm each user's purported identity.
For all users, please note that You are solely responsible for any and all activities that occur under Your account and ensuring that You exit or log-off from Your account at the end of each session of use. You shall notify your System Administrator immediately of any unauthorized use of Your password or account or any other breach of security that is known or suspected by You. User accounts cannot be "shared" or used by more than one individual. If You are an Employee of Client, Client shall be bound by Your use of the Site and/or Service.
