Web Sites Covered
Web Sites Not Covered
Some Yardi Services enable Yardi Clients to create websites and applications
that run natively on the Yardi platform. One such example are RentCafé resident portals, which facilitate
communication and transactions between Yardi Clients and their potential or actual tenants. Such websites are
controlled by Yardi Clients, and as described above, any information submitted to or collected by such websites
third party Yardi Client governs such websites.
Yardi is committed to promoting privacy principles and providing as much
information to individuals as legally and contractually possible about the processing of their personal data.
In that light, some Yardi Client-controlled websites that are created and maintained by Yardi Services may
include privacy statements directly from Yardi to the users of such websites. Yardi is committed to adhering

creates and manages the website. In addition, the Yardi Sites may contain links to other third-party websites.

ADDITIONAL VENDOR TERMS
If you use or access the Services as a Vendor, you agree to meet the following minimum standards of service:
Customer Satisfaction - You will treat your customers, including any Yardi Clients, with respect and perform your services for them in a professionally responsible manner at all times. You understand that Yardi Clients, Tenants and other users of the Services may post reviews through the Services, positive and negative, of your services and of the character of you and your service personnel. You understand and agree that, as described in the Submitted Materials section of these Terms above, Yardi is not responsible for Submitted Materials and has no obligation to review or remove such reviews, and that certain information about you may be made available to Yardi Clients. Notwithstanding the generalities of the foregoing, any negative feedback received by Yardi about you may be cause for Yardi to terminate your right to access and use the Services and/or any other agreement you may have with Yardi. Yardi has the right to terminate your ability to participate as a Vendor in our sole discretion if we have reason to believe that you are failing to meet our standards of customer satisfaction, or otherwise are in violation of these Terms.
Account Information: You represent and warrant that all Vendor information provided by you to Yardi, including all information posted on any part of Yardi Marketplace, VendorShield or VENDORCafé, shall be true, accurate, current and complete. You also represent and warrant that you will not use the Services to post any information or promote any products or services in violation of any applicable law, statute, contract, ordinance or regulation or in violation of any third party's rights, including any trade secret or other intellectual property rights.
YARDI DOES NOT WARRANT OR GUARANTEE THAT YOU WILL RECEIVE ANY ECONOMIC BENEFIT FROM USE OF THE SERVICES, FOR EXAMPLE, THAT YOU WILL RECEIVE ANY RFP'S OR THAT ANY BIDS OR PROPOSALS SUBMITTED BY YOU WILL BE ACCEPTED OR AWARDED. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR SUBMISSION OF COMPLETE AND ACCURATE PROPOSALS TO ALLOW YARDI CLIENTS AND OTHER USERS OF THE SERVICES TO PROPERLY PERFORM THEIR ANALYSIS. YARDI DOES NOT MAKE ANY DECISIONS REGARDING THE SELECTION OF VENDORS. FURTHER, ALL VENDOR COMPLIANCE VERIFICATIONS CONDUCTED THROUGH VENDORSHIELD ARE BASED ON CUSTOMER SPECIFICATIONS AND IN NO WAY GUARANTEE APPROVAL NOR ANY WORK FROM YARDI CLIENTS OR CUSTOMERS.
Indemnification and Release. You agree that, as a Vendor, you are not partners with, and are entirely independent of, Yardi. You hereby agree to indemnify and hold harmless Yardi, its directors, officers, employees, affiliates and agents from and against any third-party claims, actions, disputes or allegations arising out of or relating to (a) any fraud (or inducement to fraud), manipulation, misrepresentation or other improper action by you (or as authorized by you on your behalf) in contracting for services with a customer, (b) any work you perform, and/or products and/or services you provide (and any claimed consequence of any such work, products and/or services), or (c) any breach by you of these Terms.
Links to Other Sites:
The Services contain links to third party web sites. These links are provided solely as a convenience to you and not as an endorsement by Yardi of the contents on such web sites. Yardi is not responsible for the content of linked third party sites and does not make any representations regarding the content or accuracy of the materials on such sites. If you decide to access linked third-party web sites, you do so at your own risk.
Changes to these Terms:
These Terms may be modified by Yardi at any time without notice, and any such modification shall be effective immediately upon posting. You agree to periodically review these Terms. By accessing or using the Services, you agree to be bound by any modifications or amendments to these Terms.
You may not assign these Terms or any of your rights or obligations without the prior written consent of Yardi, and any such attempted assignment will be void. These Terms will be binding upon the parties' respective successors and permitted assigns. These Terms are governed by the laws of the State of Texas without regard to its conflict of law provisions. You agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts in Travis County, Texas. The failure of Yardi to exercise or enforce any right or provision under these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the other provisions of these terms and conditions will remain in full force and effect. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties, so some of the above exclusions in these Terms may not apply to you. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action by you arising out of or related to the Services must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. The parties to these Terms are independent contractors. With the exception of Yardi acting as a payment collection agent as expressly set forth herein, neither party is an agent, representative, or partner of the other party. Neither party shall have any right, power or authority to enter into any agreement for, or on behalf of, or incur any obligation or liability of, or to otherwise bind, the other party. These Terms shall not be interpreted or construed to create an association, agency, joint venture or partnership between the parties or to impose any liability attributable to such a relationship upon either party.
