8. Subscriptions

An individual subscription is for a single user only, and you are responsible for payment as well as the activity that occurs through your account. You agree to provide current, complete and accurate account information for all purchases made on our Website. You agree to promptly update your account and other information, including your email address and credit card numbers and expiration dates, so that we can complete your transactions and contact you as needed. You are not allowed to share your account login credentials or give your login credentials to anyone else. We may cancel or suspend access to your account if in our sole determination it is being accessed by multiple users. Any offer for any product or service made on this Website is void where prohibited.

Subscription fees will be billed at the beginning of your subscription and any subsequent renewal. Fees for monthly subscriptions are non-refundable; annual subscription refunds will be pro-rated based on the unused portion of your subscription. If you already have a subscription to Real Estate News, your subscription will renew automatically unless you terminate it or you notify Customer Service of your decision to terminate your subscription. Customer Service can be reached at 949-787-4130 or subscriptions@realestatenews.com. If your subscription is annual, you will receive a reminder of your renewal at least 30 days before billing takes place. You must cancel your subscription before it renews in order to avoid billing of subscription fees for the renewal term. If you want to use a different credit card or there is a change in credit card validity or expiration date, you can update your payment information through your account settings.

You understand that your personal information (excluding credit card information), may be transferred unencrypted and involve (a) transmissions over various networks; and (b) changes to conform and adapt to technical requirements of connecting networks or devices. Credit card information is always encrypted during transfer over networks. Pricing for any of our products or Services are also subject to change without notice. We reserve the right at any time to modify or discontinue any Service (or any part or content thereof) without notice at any time. We shall not be liable to you or to any third-party for any modification, price change, suspension or discontinuance of said Service.

9. Service

Real Estate News reserves the right, but we are not obligated, to limit providing information or news, or the sales of our products or services to any person, geographic region or jurisdiction. We may exercise this right on a case-by-case basis. We reserve the right to limit the quantities of any products or services that we offer. We reserve the right to discontinue providing news or any other product at any time. The failure by us to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of our right or provision. Any ambiguities in the interpretation of these Terms shall not be construed against the drafting party. These Terms and any separate agreements whereby we provide you Services shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of California.

10. Limitation of Liability

While Real Estate News makes every effort to present neutral, accurate, and balanced views of the real estate industry and its participants, we provide no warranties with respect to the accuracy or completeness of the contents. Users are urged to consult proper counsel or other experts regarding any points of law, finance, technology, and business before proceeding with any legal action or other actions. References to companies, products, services, and websites do not constitute or imply endorsement and neither are any references or absence of references intended to harm, place at a disadvantage, or in any way affect any company or person.

In no case shall Real Estate News, its parents, directors, officers, employees, and/or partners be liable for any injury, loss, claim, or any direct, indirect, incidental, punitive, special, or consequential damages of any kind, including, without limitation lost profits, lost revenue, lost savings, loss of data, replacement costs, or any similar damages, whether based in contract, tort (including negligence), strict liability or otherwise, arising from your use of any of the service or any products procured using the service, or for any other claim related in any way to your use of the service or any product, including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in any content, or any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of the service or any content or product posted, transmitted, or otherwise made available via the service, even if advised of their possibility. Because some states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or the limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states or jurisdictions, our liability shall be limited to the maximum extent permitted by law.

11. Unenforceable

In the event that any provision of the Terms in this Agreement are determined to be unlawful, void or unenforceable, such provision shall nonetheless be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, and the unenforceable portion shall be deemed to be severed from these Terms, such determination shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any other remaining provisions.
