Terms of Use

Last modified: November 29, 2019

We thank you for using our services (“Services”). The Services are provided by PropertyAccess Philippines Corporation, located at 8th Floor, Tower 2, High Street South Corporate Plaza, 9th Avenue corner 26th Street, Taguig City 1630, Metro Manila, Philippines.

By using our Services, you are agreeing to these terms. Please read them carefully.

Using our Services

Follow any policies made available to you within the Services.

You can only use our Services as outlined in the instructions that we provide. For example, you can’t interact with our Services using a method other than the graphical user interface –  that means automated queries and application program interface interactions are not allowed. Moreso, you may use our Services only as permitted by law. In cases of noncompliance or suspected misconduct, we may suspend or stop providing our Services to you.

If you are a real estate professional acting in your professional capacity, you may use our Services to provide information to your clients and to take actions on behalf of your clients. If you use our Services in this capacity, you must obtain all necessary authorisations and consents from your clients. For example, before advertising a listing, make sure that you have been given permission by your clients to do so.

Using our Services does not give you ownership of any content and intellectual property rights in our Services. You cannot use content from our Services unless you have permission from its owner or are permitted by law. You cannot use any branding or logos used in our Services. Do not remove, obscure, or alter any legal notices displayed in or along with our Services.

We may send you service announcements, administrative messages, and other information.

Your Account

In order to use some functionalities and features of our Services such as listing a property and bookmarking a property, you need a PropertyAccess account, which you may create on your own. Please note that you are responsible for the activity that happens on or through your account.

Fees and Subscriptions

You may be required to pay fees in order to use some functionalities and features of our Services. All fees are in Philippine pesos and are non-refundable.

If we change the fees for all or part of our Services, including by adding fees or charges, we will provide you advance notice of those changes. If you do not accept the changes, we may discontinue providing the applicable part of our Services to you.

Our authorised third-party payment processor will charge the payment method you specified at the time of purchase. You authorize PropertyAccess to charge all fees as described in these terms to that payment method.

Our Services may include features that allow for automatically recurring payments for periodic charges. If you decide to activate a subscription, you authorize us to periodically charge, on a going-forward basis and until cancellation of either the recurring payments or your account, all accrued sums on or before the payment due date for the accrued sums.

The subscription will continue unless and until you cancel your subscription, or we terminate it. You must cancel your subscription before it renews in order to avoid billing of the next periodic subscription fee to your account.

We will bill the periodic subscription fee to the payment method you provide to us during registration (or to a different payment method if you change your payment information).

We may change the subscription fee for any subsequent subscription period but will provide you advance notice of any increase before it applies. You may cancel a subscription by contacting us at support@propertyaccess.ph.

Privacy and Copyright Protection

We have described in our privacy policy what information we collect, how we collect it, and why we collect it to support our Services, including this website. By using our Services, you are agreeing with our privacy policy.

Please note that we respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement and delete accounts of any repeat infringers.

Your Content in our Services

You retain ownership of any intellectual property rights that you hold in any content that our Services allow you to submit, upload, store, send, or receive.

You give PropertyAccess (and those we work with) a worldwide license to use, host, store, modify, create derivative works, communicate, publish, publicly display, and distribute content that you submit, upload, store, send, or receive to or through our Services. The rights you grant in this license are for the limited purpose of operating, promoting, and improving our Services, and to develop new ones. However, make sure that you have the necessary rights to grant us this license before you submit any content to our Services.

If you have a PropertyAccess account, we may display your name, profile photo, mobile number, and listings in our Services.

Modifying and Terminating our Services

Our Services are constantly being modified and improved to provide you a better experience. We may add or remove functionalities or features and may suspend or stop a Service altogether.

You can stop using our Services, which we may also stop providing to you or limit, at any time. If we discontinue a Service, we will give you reasonable advance notice.

Our Warranties and Disclaimers

Our Services are provided to you using commercially reasonable level of skill and care. However, we do not promise certain things about our Services.

PropertyAccess and those we work with do not make any specific promises about our Services. We cannot guarantee the reliability, availability, or ability of our Services to meet your needs.

Liability of our Services

We and those we work with, when allowable by law, will not be responsible for lost profits, revenues, or data, financial losses or indirect, special, consequential, exemplary, or punitive damages.

Our total liability for any claims under these terms to the extent permitted by law, including for any implied warranties, is limited to the amount you paid us to use the Services (or, if we decide, to providing you the Services again).

In all cases, we and those we work with will not be liable for any loss or damage that is not reasonably foreseeable.

Nothing in these terms or any additional terms limits any consumer legal rights which may not be waived by contract.

Business Uses of our Services

If you are using our Services on behalf of a business, that business accepts these terms. It will hold harmless and indemnify us and our affiliates, officers, agents, and employees from any claim, suit or action arising from or related to the use of the Services or violation of these terms, including any liability or expense arising from claims, losses, damages, suits, judgments, litigation costs and attorneys’ fees.

About These Terms

We reserve the right to modify these terms or any additional terms that apply to our Services, for example, to reflect changes to the law or changes to our Services. Changes will not apply retroactively and will become effective immediately. In case you do not agree to the modified terms for our Services, you may and should stop your use of our Services.

These terms control the relationship between PropertyAccess and you. They do not create any third party beneficiary rights.

If you do not comply with these terms and we don’t take action right away, we still reserve any rights that we may have, including taking action in the future.

If it turns out that a particular term is not enforceable, this will not affect any other terms.

All claims arising out of or relating to these terms or the Services will be litigated exclusively in the courts of Taguig City, Metro Manila, Philippines, and you and PropertyAccess consent to personal jurisdiction in those courts.
