You represent and warrant that you are at least 18 years old, that you have the full power and authority to enter into this Agreement on behalf of yourself or your company, and that any of your employees, agents, representatives, or any person or entity acting on your behalf with respect to buying Leads through the System will be bound by this Agreement.
a. System Access
You will have access to the System for the express and sole purpose of purchasing Leads. You will access the System through a web-based account management tool that will provide a summary of purchased Leads, your account balance and payment history, and other information associated with your account.
AgentConnect will send a copy of each Lead to the email address associated with your account, however AgentConnect makes no guarantees that you will receive that notice and as a result you agree to periodically review the account management tool for the receipt of new Leads.
c. Ownership Rights.
You may distribute Leads to one (1) end-user buyer and that end-user may not redistribute or re-sell the Lead under any circumstances. Violation of this Ownership Rights provision will be grounds for immediate termination of the Agreement and gives AgentConnect the right to take any of the following actions:
i. immediate suspension of your account;
ii. immediate termination of your account;
iii. withholding any or all credit balance associated with your account at the time of the violation;
iv. liquidated damages of $2500 per incident for any knowing or willful violation of this Section; such liquidated damages are not a penalty and are a reasonable estimate of the potential loss to AgentConnect; and
v. all other remedies under law available to AgentConnect.
You represent and warrant that you and/or the end-user who purchases the Lead from you complies with all federal, state, and local licensing requirements that govern individuals or companies that would be responding to the type of Lead you have purchased.
Leads will be generated from individuals (in their personal capacity or on behalf of a company) who complete an online form that captures contact information and details about the information being requested. Lead Sellers are the individuals or companies that undertake specific marketing activities to generate the Leads. Lead Sellers generally are required to agree to abide by the following Lead Generation Guidelines:
Information contained in Leads will be submitted directly by an individual through a form that is owned and operated by the Lead Seller or through a form that is owned and operated by AgentConnect and provided to the Lead Seller for the express purpose of generating Leads.
b. Data Integrity.
Leads will include only information that has been input by the individual that completed the online form. The Lead Seller will make commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that provided information is accurate, but makes no guarantees that the data is accurate. AgentConnect will use commercially reasonable efforts to verify the accuracy of certain consumer information, such as the name and phone number, but makes no guarantee that the data is accurate.
a. Lead Dispute Procedure.
If you wish dispute the validity of any Lead received from AgentConnect, you acknowledge and agree that you must contact AgentConnect no later than thirty (30) days from the date the Lead was transmitted to you by AgentConnect or you forever waive your rights to contest that Lead. If AgentConnect determines the Lead was Invalid we may, in our sole discretion, issue you a credit or refund for the Invalid Lead or issue you replacement Lead (a "Replacement"). AgentConnect’s reasonable determination of whether a Lead is valid or Invalid shall be final and binding.
b. Invalid Leads.
A Lead may be considered Invalid and eligible for replacement due to one or more of the following:
i. The same consumer submits the same request twice resulting in a Duplicate Lead from within 30 days from the date first lead was received
ii. All of the consumer’s contact information submitted by the consumer is wrong
iii. The consumer’s phone number is wrong or disconnected
iv. The consumer is a minor under the age of 18
v. The consumer is not within the zip codes, city or county specified in your profile
vi. The consumer is already working with another real estate agent (real estate agent’s name must be provided to receive replacement)
The following situations or occurrences have already accounted for in your Lead price and therefore are not considered Invalid and are not eligible for credit or replacement:
i. The consumer is “just shopping”
ii. You did not win the business
iii. The consumer changed their mind
iv. The consumer is not calling you back
c. Termination of Abusive Accounts.
AgentConnect may, in our sole reasonable discretion, choose to terminate your account if we determine that you have repeatedly submitted Lead replacement requests in bad faith or have otherwise abused AgentConnect’s Lead Replacement policy.
d. Incentivized Leads.
Leads generated by misleading the consumer or by providing the consumer a reason to believe that they will receive a prize, gift, payment or pecuniary benefit of any kind in exchange for completing a lead form are prohibited.
e. Compliance with Applicable Laws.
Lead Sellers represent and warrant that they have complied with all applicable laws regarding their collection and sale of the Leads and that they have the right to sell the Leads. However, AgentConnect cannot ensure the practices of the Lead Sellers and AgentConnect makes no guarantee that the Lead Sellers have complied with all of the laws and licensing requirements with respect to collecting and/or selling Leads. AgentConnect will, however, take appropriate action within AgentConnect's full discretion, including termination of the relationship, against any Lead Seller that violates this provision.
a. Lead Fees.
The lead fee will be established at the point of sale. You will be charged for every three (3) unpaid leads that you receive, or on the first of the following month, whichever happens first. You will not be charged for leads sent as replacements or leads delivered above your lead range requested. If you decide to cancel the program, you will be billed immediately for any uncharged leads. You will never be asked to pay for leads that have not yet been delivered as a percentage of your commission on closed transactions from the leads.
b. Monthly Membership Fees
The monthly membership fee of $54.95 will be prorated and charged immediately during the initial month when you sign up and thereafter will be charged on the first day of each month. During specified promotions, monthly memberships may be waived in writing by a AgentConnect representative.
