Confidentiality & Usage
The purchaser of rental information from Westside Rental Connection agrees to keep the information absolutely confidential and not to share or disclose the information or login username and password with any person or entity for any purpose. The purchaser will use the information for the purposes of locating housing for their individual and personal use and will not use the information for any corporate purpose including, but not limited to, soliciting property management, scraping listings, and real estate investment business without the written consent of Westside Rental Connection. The purchaser of the information further agrees that the information is proprietary to Westside Rental Connection and that any misuse of the information is a breach of this agreement as well as a violation of California law governing trade secrets; misuse is subject to prosecution by government authorities and monetary recovery of damages by Westside Rental Connection. Westside Rental Connection maintains the right to suspend, disable or terminate any purchaser account for suspicious usage activity, including concurrent login sessions, group usage, usage from a range or variety of IP addresses, suspected non-personal use, corporate use as well as abnormally high usage levels. Westside Rental Connection is the exclusive arbiter of types of usage that is deemed to be suspicious and warrants account suspension, disablement, or termination.
Accuracy of Information
Westside Rental Connection makes an honest and diligent effort to acquire accurate information furnished by the landlords or property agents. The greater portion of Westside Rental Connection’s information is obtained by use of telephone; therefore, our representation and description of rentals will reflect the information given to us by the landlord or property agent. Accordingly we cannot be responsible for the accuracy of property descriptions or conditions. Due to the nature of the real estate market, all listings are subject to prior rental.
