By using OfferDash’s Web sites (defined to include all properties (mobile, Web or otherwise) owned and operated by OfferDash), related data, and/or related services (collectively, “Services”), you agree to be bound by the following terms of use, as updated from time to time (“Terms of Use”). OfferDash® complaints or questions regarding these Terms of Use may be sent to legal@offerdash.com. OfferDash® reviews questions regularly.

Permissible Use. Unless you are a real estate or lending professional acting in your professional capacity, you agree to use the Services for your personal use, and your commercial use is limited to transactions done on your own behalf. The commercial use of real estate and lending professionals is limited to providing information to consumers via the Services or, where authorized, taking actions on behalf of a consumer client (e.g., post a home for sale). Without limitation, lending professionals and institutions are prohibited from using the information provided by OfferDash® through the Services in making any loan-related decisions. The Services may be used only for transactions in residential real estate and may not be used for transactions in commercial real estate, which includes, without limitation, commercially zoned properties, timeshares, and vacation rentals. Subject to the restrictions set forth in the following paragraphs, you may copy information from the Services only as necessary for your personal use to view, save, print, fax, and/or e-mail such information. You agree otherwise not to reproduce, modify, distribute, display or otherwise provide access to, create derivative works from, decompile, disassemble or reverse engineer any portion of the Services.

Restrictions and Additional Terms. You agree not to remove or modify any copyright or other intellectual property notices that appear in the Services. You will not use the Services for resale, service bureau, time-sharing, or other similar purposes. Further:

Transactions and E-Commerce. During your visit to our site, you may elect to engage in a transaction involving the purchase of a product such as a featured listing, an online advertisement, or other tangible goods and services. To serve you most efficiently, credit card transactions and order fulfillment are often handled by a third party processing agent, bank, or distribution institution. While in most cases transactions are completed without difficulty, there is no such thing as “perfect security” on the Internet or offline. If you’re concerned about online credit card safety, in most cases a telephone number will be made available so you can call us and place your order by phone. OfferDash® can not take responsibility for the success or security of transactions undertaken or processed by third parties.

On occasion, a product or service may not be available at the time or the price as it appears in an advertisement. In such event, or in the event a product is listed at an incorrect price or with incorrect information due to typographical error, technology effort, error in the date or length of publication, or error in pricing or product information received from our advertisers or suppliers, you agree OD is not responsible for such errors or discrepancies.

To protect your safety, please use your best judgment when using these forums.

We particularly discourage divulging personal phone numbers and addresses or other information that can be used to identify or locate you. If you make such disclosures either through postings on the blogs, comment areas, or private messages you place or in other interactive areas or to third parties in any communication, you do so fully understanding the consequences of such disclosures and with a knowing consent that such information could be used to identify you. Divulging real names, phone numbers, addresses, occupations, or other information that can be used to identify or locate other site users is strictly prohibited.
