In the event that Member makes a telephone call to Renwood RealtyTrac, LLC directly, or to Service Providers through the Telephone Calling Service, Member consents to such recording and monitoring. Member also consents to receiving e-mails and telephone calls from Service Providers and other third parties, as Member's requests for Services may require services from such third parties.

4. PAYMENT OF CHARGES

  1. a. Payment Terms and Charges
    The fee to register as a Member on the Site is normally assessed on a monthly basis, but other billing arrangements may be made available to Members, in RealtyTrac's sole discretion. The membership fee is calculated from the day upon which Member's paid membership commences. Member agrees that if Member applies for a seven (7) day free trial membership ("Trial Membership") and does not cancel such Trial Membership, Member authorizes RealtyTrac to convert the Member's Trial Membership into a regular paid membership for the term selected, effective seven (7) days, or one hundred sixty-eight (168) hours following Member's initiation of the Trial Membership.

    Upon registration for the Trial Membership, Member shall provide a valid credit card number, and authorizes RealtyTrac, at its discretion, to verify the account is valid by processing a minimal charge which will be instantly refunded to the credit card charged.

    Member hereby authorizes RealtyTrac to charge Member's credit card, debit card or bank account, in advance, for the amount of Member's regular membership fee for each agreed term of the Member's selected membership term. Member hereby authorizes RealtyTrac to modify the term membership fee charged to Member upon thirty (30) days notice to Member sent by e-mail to the address provided on registration. The membership fee, when paid, is non-refundable and accrues on the first day of each term or successive renewal term until canceled, regardless of whether or not the Member actually uses the Site, the Services or the Content. Notwithstanding the language in this paragraph, if a membership resulted from a special introductory promotional offer, then the terms of that specific promotional offer shall control.

    From time to time at its sole discretion, RealtyTrac may offer different subscription terms on its Site, and the membership fees for such subscriptions may vary.

    The fee for a Member who has opted to make single property purchases is assessed at the time of purchase. The purchase entitles the Member to online access to the property(ies), and that access shall expire thirty (30) days from the day of purchase. Single property purchases are final, and there are no prorations. Refunds or credits may be considered on a case by case basis where it is determined the property data is incorrect or invalid; however, these terms and conditions are generally controlled by the Disclaimers and Limitations set out in Section 9 below.

    Various Services and/or Content on the Site, whether offered by RealtyTrac, third-party Service Providers or others, may require additional fees or charges.

  2. b. On Time Payment
    Member is required to pay all charges on time, and agrees to submit an accompanying payment authorization in connection with these charges when requested by RealtyTrac. Credit card transactions require an acceptable and currently working/continuously valid credit card number/account. RealtyTrac may terminate or disable Member's membership if Member fails to pay fully and in a timely manner all amounts due to RealtyTrac. If Member's credit card expires or is otherwise declined for payment, access to the Services and the Site may be modified, suspended or cancelled, in RealtyTrac's sole discretion and without notice to Member. If any Member payment is more than thirty (30) calendar days past due, interest pro-rated daily, at the rate of 15 percent per annum on such past due amounts, or the maximum allowable by law, whichever is less, shall accrue, and the entire amount of unpaid charges, plus this assessment, will become immediately due and payable. Member shall pay all costs incurred by RealtyTrac with respect to collection of any past due amount, including legal fees. Each time Member accesses or uses the Site or the Services, Member affirms that RealtyTrac is authorized to obtain payment through a selected payment method. All fees are quoted and payable in United States Dollars. Member is also responsible for paying all applicable taxes for Services and/or Content, and any other costs incurred in connection with the use of or access to the Site.

  3. c. Payment Methods
    Member's complete billing address and telephone number must be provided to process payments. RealtyTrac accepts most major credit cards and may accept bank drafts, including personal checks, money orders, cashiers checks and company checks sent by mail. However, for non-credit card or non-electronic payment methods, RealtyTrac does not offer a Trial Membership and may not credit the applicable account until additional procedures are completed and after RealtyTrac's bank certifies receipt of funds — typically ten (10) business days after receipt of a check. RealtyTrac may charge a twenty dollar ($20.00) handling fee, or the maximum allowable by law, whichever is less, for each check returned unpaid for insufficient funds or any other reason.

  4. d. Account Discrepancies
    Member may contact the RealtyTrac Customer Service Department by e-mail at support@realtytrac.com or telephone at 800-905-1648 concerning charges or other questions regarding the status of Member's account. However, if Member's account-related questions are not satisfactorily resolved within fifteen (15) business days of Member's first calling or sending an e-mail to the RealtyTrac Customer Service Department regarding such questions, Member must write to the RealtyTrac Customer Service Department at: Renwood RealtyTrac LLC., One Venture Plaza, Suite 300, Irvine, CA 92618, delivered by United States mail or by fax to 949.305.0803. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no event may Member dispute any charge or account billing hereunder later than ninety (90) days after such questionable account billing or other discrepancy should have been or could have been reasonably discovered by Member. Otherwise, except as required by applicable law, any and all such Member complaints are waived by Member.

5. Term of Membership

The term of Member's access to the Site, Services and Content is based upon Member's express agreement and adherence to these Terms of Use and to Member's fully paid membership and/or other fees. Member's membership to the Site shall be for the initial term (e.g., daily, monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or annually) as may be agreed by Member and RealtyTrac through online registration, telephone order or otherwise, and shall automatically renew for indefinite successive renewal terms for the same period as the initial term or on a month to month basis, depending on agreed upon terms, unless terminated by Member or RealtyTrac in accordance with the provisions of these Terms of Use. However, if Member accepts a special or introductory promotional offer for a membership, then at the conclusion of the initial term specified in such special introductory promotional offer, the membership shall automatically renew and Member hereby authorizes RealtyTrac to charge Member's credit card or bank account in advance on a month-to-month basis for indefinite successive renewal terms at the then prevailing regular published monthly retail rate at the time of such renewal until terminated in accordance with the provisions of these Terms of Use.


Member acknowledges and agrees that NO refund, offset or credit will be given for any cancellation of a special introductory promotional offer membership or for subscription downgrades. If Member registers for a free Trial Membership, Member agrees to be enrolled into a pre-paid month-to-month membership at the end of the free trial period if Member has not canceled the Trial Membership prior to the expiration thereof.


6. Termination

Either RealtyTrac or Member may cancel Member's membership at any time for any reason (unless otherwise stated in an applicable promotional offer). In the event of termination by Member or by RealtyTrac, all fees due to RealtyTrac up to the end of the then-current term billing cycle at time of termination shall remain payable to RealtyTrac unless otherwise specifically stated in an applicable promotional offer.


All members may terminate membership by telephoning a cancellation request to 800-670-2181 during the business hours of 7am to 6:30pm Pacific Time, Monday through Friday and 8am to 4pm Pacific Time, Saturday and Sunday.


RealtyTrac reserves its right to terminate or suspend access to the Services and the Content to any Member whose information RealtyTrac believes, at RealtyTrac's sole discretion, to be inaccurate or misleading.


If at any time RealtyTrac believes, in its sole discretion, that the Member has violated any provision of these Terms of Use, RealtyTrac may immediately terminate Member's membership and all other Services without any right of Member to a refund or other remedy, and all fees due to RealtyTrac up to the end of the then-current billing cycle at the time of such termination shall remain payable to RealtyTrac. Such termination will not limit any other right by RealtyTrac under contract, tort or any other legal theory to pursue any claim or cause of action against the Member for violating these Terms of Use including, but not limited to, monetary damages, injunctive relief, attorney's fees and court costs.


7. Ownership and Safekeeping; Modification of RealtyTrac Services

Such arbitration shall be held before one arbitrator under the commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in force at that time. The arbitrator shall be selected pursuant to the AAA rules. In any arbitration, RealtyTrac will pay the filing fee, plus the costs associated with the first day of arbitration, with the remaining costs of arbitration paid by the non-prevailing party.
