You agree that by clicking “Join Now”, “Join Owner Group”, “Sign Up” or similar, registering, accessing or using our services (described below), you are agreeing to enter into a legally binding contract with Owner Group (even if you are using our Services on behalf of a company). If you do not agree to this contract (“Contract” or “User Agreement”), do not click “Join Now” (or similar) and do not access or otherwise use any of our Services. If you wish to terminate this contract, at any time you can do so by closing your account and no longer accessing or using our Services.
This Contract applies to ownergroup.net and other Owner Group-related sites, apps, communications and other services that state that they are offered under this Contract (“Services”), including the offsite collection of data for those Services. Registered users of our Services are “Members” and unregistered users are “Visitors”. This Contract applies to both Members and Visitors.
You are entering into this Contract with Owner Group (also referred to as “we” and “us”).
We reserve the right to change this User Agreement from time to time without notice. You acknowledge and agree that it is your responsibility to review this User Agreement periodically to familiarize yourself with any modifications. Your continued use of this site after such modifications will constitute acknowledgment and agreement of the modified terms and conditions.
The Services are not for use by anyone under the age of 18.
To use the Services, you agree that: (1) you must be the “Minimum Age” (described below) or older; (2) you will only have one Owner Group account, which must be in your real name; and (3) you are not already restricted by Owner Group from using the Services. Creating an account with false information is a violation of our terms, including accounts registered on behalf of others or persons under the age of 18.
“Minimum Age” means 18 years old. However, if law requires that you must be older in order for Owner Group to lawfully provide the Services to you without parental consent (including using of your personal data) then the Minimum Age is such older age.
Members are account holders. You agree to:
1) Try to choose a strong and secure password;
2) Keep your password secure and confidential;
3) Sign up as Corporate member, if you are a company owner or decision maker from any company;
4) Sign up as Personal member, if you are a self-employed professional;
5) Not transfer any part of your account (e.g. Contacts); and
6) Follow the law and our list of Dos and Don’ts. You are responsible for anything that happens through your account unless you close it or report misuse.
As between you and others, your account belongs to you. However, if the Services were purchased by another party for you to use (e.g. Who Saw Me bought by your company), the party paying for such Service has the right to control access to and get reports on your use of such paid Service; however, they do not have rights to your personal account.
If you buy any of our paid Services, you agree to pay us the applicable fees and taxes and to additional terms specific to the paid Services. Failure to pay these fees will result in the termination of your paid Services. Also, you agree that:
Your purchase may be subject to foreign exchange fees or differences in prices based on location (e.g. exchange rates).
We may store and continue billing your payment method (e.g. credit card) even after it has expired, to avoid interruptions in your Services and to use to pay other Services you may buy.
If you purchase a subscription, your payment method automatically will be charged at the start of each subscription period for the fees and taxes applicable to that period. To avoid future charges, cancel before the renewal date.
All of your purchases of Services are subject to Owner Group’s refund policy.
We may calculate taxes payable by you based on the billing information that you provide us at the time of purchase.
NOTICES AND MESSAGES
You agree that we will provide notices and messages to you in the following ways: (1) within the Service, or (2) sent to the contact information you provided us (e.g., email, mobile number, physical address). You agree to keep your contact information up to date.
Please review your settings to control and limit messages you receive from us.
Our Services allow messaging and sharing of information in many ways, such as your profile, item postings, groups and events. Information and content that you share or post may be seen by other members, visitors or others (including off of the Services). Where we have made settings available, we will honor the choices you make about who can see content or information (e.g. sharing updates only to Owner Group Contacts, restricting your profile visibility from search engines or certain members, etc.). For Home page activities, we default to showing to all the network members. So if you share an update through our Service, post an item or create any content, our default is to share it with all the members.
We are not obligated to publish any information or content on our Service and can remove it in our sole discretion, with or without notice.
