These Terms of Use, which include the Mashvisor Privacy Policy, serve as the "Agreement" between you and Mashvisor regarding the Services, and provide important information to you, including information about your obligations about content and our limitation of liability to you. By accessing, downloading, or using any portion of the Services, you signify that you accept the terms of the Agreement. If you do not accept, then please do not use the Services.

H. Information Aggregation Mashvisor is not responsible for any errors in displayed information or delays in displaying information.

Issues of data accuracy may be brought to the attention of Mashvisor by sending feedback but it is likely that such information accuracy cannot be corrected by Mashvisor and the entity or person that generated the information must be appealed to. For example: incorrect listing information can only be changed by the third party listing agent under our terms with the MLSs.

    13. Dispute Resolution

    Any claim or controversy arising out of or relating to the use of the Sites, to the goods or services provided by Mashvisor, or to any acts or omissions for which you may contend Mashvisor is liable, including but not limited to any claim or controversy as to arbitrability ("Dispute"), shall be finally, and exclusively, settled by arbitration. The arbitration shall be held before one arbitrator under the commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in force at that time. The arbitration shall be venued in San Jose, CA. The arbitrator shall be selected pursuant to the AAA rules or from a list of arbitrators provided by Mashvisor. Filing and other non-award costs will be paid for, in equal shares, by both parties except that the fee to the arbitrator will be paid by the non-prevailing party. To begin the arbitration process, a party must make a written demand. Should any State or Federal law conflict with the above rules for resolving disputes or the AAA rules, such conflicting rules shall be severed from the enforceable rules and the enforceable rules shall survive and control the dispute resolution process. Any gaps left in the process due to severed rules shall be resolved at the discretion of the selected arbitrator. Any judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrators may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction in San Jose, California. The arbitrators shall not have the power to award damages in connection with any Dispute in excess of actual compensatory damages and shall not multiply actual damages or award consequential, punitive or exemplary damages, and each party irrevocably waives any claim thereto. The agreement to arbitrate shall not be construed as an agreement to the joinder or consolidation of an arbitration under this agreement with arbitration of disputes or claims of any non-party, regardless of the nature of the issues or disputes involved.

    Should a Dispute arise and should the arbitration provisions herein become inapplicable or unenforceable, or in any instance of any lawsuit between you and Mashvisor, the parties agree that jurisdiction over and venue of any suit shall be exclusively in the state and federal courts sitting in San Jose, California. If either party employs attorneys to enforce any right in connection with any Dispute or lawsuit the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover reasonable attorneys' fees.

    14. Additional Legal Terms

    A. Severability If any provision of this Agreement is found by a court of competent jurisdiction or arbitrator to be illegal, void, or unenforceable, the unenforceable provision will be modified so as to render it enforceable and effective to the maximum extent possible in order to effect the intention of the provision.

    B. Entire Agreement You agree that this Agreement constitutes the entire, complete and exclusive agreement between you and Mashvisor regarding the Services and supersedes all prior agreements and understandings, whether written or oral, or whether established by custom, practice, policy or precedent, with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement.

If you do not want to agree to changes to this Agreement, you can terminate this Agreement at any time per Section 9 (Termination).
