Biproxi may, but is not obligated to, review any Listing uploaded to the Platform.
BIPROXI DOES NOT, AND THE SERVICE IS NOT INTENDED TO, PROVIDE FINANCIAL OR REAL ESTATE ADVICE. BIPROXI IS NOT A FINANCIAL OR REAL ESTATE BROKER OR LENDER. FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION, PLEASE SEE SECTION 11 (NO WARRANTY). IF YOU ARE A BUYER OR TENANT USER IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO CONFIRM THE LICENSED STATUS OF ANY BROKER LISTED ON THE PLATFORM.

You may use the Service only if you can form a binding contract with biproxi, and only in compliance with these Terms and all applicable local, state, national, and international laws, rules and regulations. Any use or access to the Service by anyone under 13 is strictly prohibited and in violation of these Terms. The Service is not available to any Users previously removed from the Service by biproxi.
Your biproxi account gives you access to the services and functionality that we may establish and maintain from time to time and in our sole discretion. We may maintain different types of accounts for different types of Users. If you open a biproxi account on behalf of a biproxi, organization, or other entity, then (i) “you” includes you and that entity, and (ii) you represent and warrant that you are an authorized representative of the entity with the authority to bind the entity to these Terms, and that you agree to these Terms on the entity’s behalf.
If you are a User who identifies or purports to be a Broker you hereby represent and warrant that (i) you are validly licensed as a Broker and (ii) you are in compliance with applicable Broker requirements in all jurisdictions in which you are required to be licensed and/or where you have a Listing. Biproxi may, in its sole discretion, but without any obligation verify a Broker’s licensure, remove from the list of Brokers any User who biproxi believes is not a licensed Broker in any applicable jurisdiction. Biproxi may, in its sole discretion, terminate the accounts of, and refuse services to, any User who repeatedly or knowingly misrepresents its licensed Broker status or upon notification by any state agency or similar governmental authority that such User is not a licensed Broker.
You may never use another User’s account without permission. When creating your account, you must provide accurate and complete information, and you must keep this information up to date. When you create an account and provide us with your information, we may verify your identity using a third party provider and you hereby agree to and provide your consent for such verification.

We encourage you to use “strong” passwords (passwords that use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols) with your account. You must notify biproxi immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your account. Biproxi will not be liable for any losses caused by any unauthorized use of your account.

You acknowledge and agree that biproxi has no control over, and shall have no liability for any damages resulting from, the use (including, without limitation, re-publication) or misuse by you or any third party of any User Content. Biproxi acts as a passive conduit for User Content and has no obligation to screen or monitor User Content. If biproxi becomes aware of any User Content that allegedly may not conform to these Terms, biproxi may investigate the allegation and determine in its sole discretion whether to take action in accordance with these Terms.

1. Biproxi may offer Brokers the option of having a professional third-party photographer (“Third-Party Photographer”) take photographs of a Broker’s property per the fees set forth in Section 4 (Pricing and Payment Information). Such photos will be made available to the Broker to include in their Listing with or without a watermark or tag bearing the words “biproxi Verified Photo” or similar wording (“Verified Images”). Brokers are responsible for ensuring that your property is accurately represented in the Verified Images and the Broker must stop using the Verified Images on or through the biproxi Platform if they no longer accurately represent the Listing or if the Broker’s account is terminated or suspended for any reason.
You acknowledge and agree that the Third-Party Photographer owns and retains all copyrights for works created or produced by such third-party provider. Biproxi hereby grants Broker a worldwide, non-exclusive, fully-paid license to use, reproduce, distribute, copy, display, perform, modify and create derivative works of the Verified Images in electronic form, in any medium now existing or hereafter created, for use in connection with the marketing of a Listing on the biproxi Platform.

Biproxi may also at its sole discretion limit access to the Service and/or terminate the accounts of any Users who infringe any intellectual property rights of others, whether or not there is any repeat infringement.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless biproxi and its subsidiaries, agents, licensors, managers, and other affiliated companies, and their employees, contractors, agents, officers and directors, from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debt, and expenses (including but not limited to attorney’s fees) arising from: (i) your use of and access to the Service, including any data or content transmitted or received by you; (ii) your violation of any term of these Terms, including without limitation your breach of any of the representations and warranties above; (iii) your violation of any third-party right, including without limitation any right of privacy or Intellectual Property Rights; (iv) your violation of any applicable law, rule or regulation; (v) User Content or any content that is submitted via your account including without limitation misleading, false, or inaccurate information; (vi) your willful misconduct; or (vii) any other party’s access and use of the Service with your unique username, password or other appropriate security code.

The Service is provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis. Use of the Service is at your own risk. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, the Service is provided without warranties of any kind, whether express or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement. No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by you from biproxi or through the Service will create any warranty not expressly stated herein. Without limiting the foregoing, biproxi, its subsidiaries, its affiliates, and its licensors do not warrant that the content is accurate, reliable or correct; that the Service will meet your requirements; that the Service will be available at any particular time or location, uninterrupted or secure; that any defects or errors will be corrected; or that the Service is free of viruses or other harmful components.

Biproxi does not warrant, endorse, guarantee, or assume responsibility for any product or service advertised or offered by a third party through the Service or any hyperlinked website or service, and biproxi will not be a party to or in any way monitor any transaction between you and third-party providers of products or services.
Federal law, some states, provinces and other jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion and limitations of certain implied warranties, so the above exclusions may not apply to you. This agreement gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state. The disclaimers and exclusions under this agreement will not apply to the extent prohibited by applicable law.
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in no event shall biproxi, its affiliates, agents, directors, employees, suppliers or licensors be liable for any indirect, punitive, incidental, special, consequential or exemplary damages, including without limitation damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data or other intangible losses, arising out of or relating to the use of, or inability to use, this service. Under no circumstances will biproxi be responsible for any damage, loss or injury resulting from hacking, tampering or other unauthorized access or use of the Service or your account or the information contained therein.
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, biproxi assumes no liability or responsibility for any (i) errors, mistakes, or inaccuracies of content; (ii) personal injury or property damage, of any nature whatsoever, resulting from your access to or use of our service; (iii) any unauthorized access to or use of our secure servers and/or any and all personal information stored therein; (iv) any interruption or cessation of transmission to or from the Service; (v) any bugs, viruses, trojan horses, or the like that may be transmitted to or through our service by any third party; (vi) any errors or omissions in any content or for any loss or damage incurred as a result of the use of any content posted, emailed, transmitted, or otherwise made available through the Service; and/or (vii) User Content or the defamatory, offensive, or illegal conduct of any third party.

This limitation of liability section applies whether the alleged liability is based on contract, tort, negligence, strict liability, or any other basis, even if biproxi has been advised of the possibility of such damage. The foregoing limitation of liability shall apply to the fullest extent permitted by law in the applicable jurisdiction.
Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. This agreement gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state. The disclaimers, exclusions, and limitations of liability under this agreement will not apply to the extent prohibited by applicable law.
The Service is controlled and operated from facilities in the United States. Biproxi makes no representations that the Service is appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who access or use the Service from other jurisdictions do so at their own volition and are entirely responsible for compliance with all applicable United States and local laws and regulations, including but not limited to export and import regulations. You may not use the Service if you are a resident of a country embargoed by the United States, or are a foreign person or entity blocked or denied by the United States government. Unless otherwise explicitly stated, all materials found on the Service are solely directed to individuals, companies, or other entities located in the United States.
A. Governing Law. You agree that: (i) the Service shall be deemed solely based in New York; and (ii) the Service shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over us, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than New York. These Terms shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of New York, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The parties acknowledge that these Terms evidence a transaction involving interstate commerce. Notwithstanding the preceding sentences with respect to the substantive law, any arbitration conducted pursuant to the terms of these Terms shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16). The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the federal and state courts located in New York County, New York for any actions for which we retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a our copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights, as set forth in the Arbitration provision below, including any provisional relief required to prevent irreparable harm. You agree that New York County, New York is the proper forum for any appeals of an arbitration award or for trial court proceedings in the event that the arbitration provision below is found to be unenforceable.
B. Arbitration. Read this section carefully because it requires the parties to arbitrate their disputes and limits the manner in which you can seek relief from biproxi. For any dispute with biproxi, you agree to first contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and attempt to resolve the dispute with us informally. In the unlikely event that biproxi has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after sixty (60) days, we each agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy (excluding any claims for injunctive or other equitable relief as provided below) arising out of or in connection with or relating to these Terms, or the breach or alleged breach thereof (collectively, “Claims”), by binding arbitration by JAMS, under the Optional Expedited Arbitration Procedures then in effect for JAMS, except as provided herein. JAMS may be contacted at www.jamsadr.com. The arbitration will be conducted in New York County, New York, unless you and biproxi agree otherwise. If you are using the Service for commercial purposes, each party will be responsible for paying any JAMS filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with JAMS rules, and the award rendered by the arbitrator shall include costs of arbitration, reasonable attorneys’ fees and reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses. If you are an individual using the Service for non-commercial purposes: (i) JAMS may require you to pay a fee for the initiation of your case, unless you apply for and successfully obtain a fee waiver from JAMS; (ii) the award rendered by the arbitrator may include your costs of arbitration, your reasonable attorney’s fees, and your reasonable costs for expert and other witnesses; and (iii) you may sue in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction without first engaging in arbitration, but this does not absolve you of your commitment to engage in the informal dispute resolution process. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall be deemed as preventing biproxi from seeking injunctive or other equitable relief from the courts as necessary to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of our data security, Intellectual Property Rights or other proprietary rights.
C. Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver. With respect to all persons and entities, regardless of whether they have obtained or used the Service for personal, commercial or other purposes, all claims must be brought in the parties’ individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action, collective action, private attorney general action or other representative proceeding. This waiver applies to class arbitration, and, unless we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims. You agree that, by entering into this agreement, you and biproxi are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action, collective action, private attorney general action, or other representative proceeding of any kind.
A. Assignment. These Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by biproxi without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void.
C. Entire Agreement/Severability. These Terms, together with any amendments and any additional agreements you may enter into with biproxi in connection with the Service, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and biproxi concerning the Service.

The parties may add one or more Properties to this Agreement by executing one or more amendments in the form attached hereto and incorporated herein (each, an “Amendment”).

Biproxi may delay or suspend marketing the Property until all Due Diligence Materials have been received. The Due Diligence Materials will be made available to the escrow/closing agent, and to prospective buyers and lenders who agree to keep them confidential. Seller must promptly notify Biproxi if Seller learns that any of the Due Diligence Materials are or become inaccurate or incomplete in any material respect.

Confidentiality: Each party to the Agreement (as applicable, the “Receiving Party”), for itself and its employees and agents, agrees not to disclose to others any confidential or proprietary information of the other party (as applicable, the “Disclosing Party“) which may become known to the Receiving Party under the Agreement, except to the extent the Disclosing Party specifically authorizes the disclosure, or the disclosure of Seller confidential information reasonably results from Biproxi’s performance of the Agreement.

Authority/No Conflicts: Each party represents and warrants that it is duly authorized to enter into the Agreement and perform its obligations under the Agreement. Each natural person signing the Agreement on behalf of an entity represents and warrants that he/she has the requisite authority to so bind the entity. Except as disclosed in the Agreement, Seller represents and warrants that there are no purchase agreements, purchase options, or rights of first refusal affecting the Property, or other agreements that could reasonably be expected to conflict with Seller’s ability to perform under the Agreement. Seller represents and warrants that publication of the Due Diligence Materials and photographs provided by Seller in connection with Biproxi’s marketing of each Property will not infringe any third party rights, and Seller grants Biproxi a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, royalty-free license to use and modify the photographs for any purpose, including for purposes of marketing Biproxi.
