We have the right at any time to change or discontinue any aspect or feature of the Site including, without limitation, the contents of the Site and any services offered by the Site. You may visit our Site at any time to read these Terms and learn of any revisions made to these Terms.

Our company includes agents and brokers licensed in the State of Tennessee and, accordingly, we are governed by all rules and regulations of that profession. Your submission of information does not automatically create a brokerage relationship with us or any particular broker/agent.

- Our Services.
- In General. We offer information to tenants and prospective tenants regarding various Property spaces and amenities, as well as certain events, policies, and financial, logistical and operational matters. The use of the Site by you does not create a landlord-tenant relationship, nor does it constitute an offer to lease any Property. All leasing decisions are between you and each Property, completely exclusive of us.

- Limitations of Warranties and Remedies. To the full extent allowed by law, we disclaim all warranties, terms, or conditions, express or implied, either in fact or by operation of law, statutory or otherwise, including warranties, terms, or conditions of merchantability, and fitness for a particular purpose. We neither assume nor authorize any other person to assume for us any other liability in connection with the sale and use of the Services or services provided by Property or any third-party. In no event will we be liable for any incidental, consequential, punitive, or special damages, including, without limitation, lost profits or revenues, even if we have, or should have had, any knowledge, actual or constructive, of the possibility of such damages.
- Limitation of Liability. To the greatest extent authorized by applicable law, in no event shall we, our directors, officers, employees, affiliates, agents or service providers be liable for any injury, loss, claim, or any damages of any kind, including, whether based in contract, tort (including negligence), strict liability or otherwise, arising from your use of this site, or for any other claim related in any way to your use of this site, including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in any content, or any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of the site or any content transmitted or otherwise made available via the site, even if advised of their possibility; this also includes any damage or harm that you may suffer from actually residing in any apartment community after utilizing any services we offer on the site, such liability being expressly denied.
Unless otherwise noted, all Tenant Services and any other services (other than the Services as defined above) are provided by independent Vendors, and not by us. In no event will we be liable for any Tenant Services, other services, nor any act or omission by any Vendor, including (without limitation) those who are “White labeled” with our name and brands and/or email addresses. Each Vendor is an independent service provider and not a partner or affiliate of us.
- Indemnification. You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless us and our officers, directors, contractors, owners, agents and employees (the “Covered Parties”) against any and all third-party claims, suits, costs, losses, liabilities, and expenses of any kind (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) that the Covered Parties may incur arising out of or resulting from your use of the Site or any of the Services.
- Choice of Law and Venue. These Terms will be construed and governed in accordance with the laws of the State of Tennessee without application of choice-of-law provisions that would require application of the laws of another jurisdiction. By using the Site, you hereby irrevocably submit yourself to the exclusive venue and personal jurisdiction of the state and federal courts in Davidson County, Tennessee with regard to any dispute relating to these Terms or its enforcement. You also hereby waive any challenge to venue and personal jurisdiction you may have to a lawsuit filed in a state or federal court in Davidson County, Tennessee, relating to a dispute between the parties relating to these Terms or its enforcement.
- Severability. If any provision of these Terms are found to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the validity, legality, and enforceability of any of the remaining provisions will not in any way be affected or impaired and a valid, legal, and enforceable provision of similar intent and economic impact will be substituted therefore.
- Additional Provisions Regarding Liability. You agree that the foregoing limitations will not be read so as to limit any liability to an extent that would not be permitted under applicable law and specifically will not limit any liability for gross negligence, intentional, tortious, or unlawful conduct or damages for strict liability that may not be limited by law.
- Notices. Any notices or communication sent by you to us pursuant to these Terms will be in writing and sent to the address specified herein or such other address as Property may specify in writing. All notices must be sent to: [email protected].

- Suggestions and Idea Submissions. Unless otherwise agreed to in writing, we do not accept unauthorized idea submissions outside of established business relationships.

However, if, in our sole discretion, we determine that a review is necessary, it will be with the understanding that we assume no obligation to protect the confidentiality of your idea or compensate you for its disclosure or use. By submitting an idea or other detailed submission to us through the Site, you agree to be bound by the terms of these Terms.
