7.1 If payment is made by eCheck/ACH, you understand that if such payment is returned from the bank for any reason, you may be charged additional returned item fee(s), which will be added to the original amount and auto-debited from your bank account at least ten (10) days after the initial payment fails. In the event that subsequent fee collection auto-debits also fail, you may continue to incur fees related to such attempts. You assume all responsibility for all such fees. Returned item fees vary; please contact your leasing office for details. Additional fees may also be assessed by your bank and/or Property Client. Your copy of the application will serve as a receipt for the application fee collected.
7.2 Convenience fees are charged by us, and not by your Property Client. Convenience fees are not surcharges and are non-refundable. We are a third-party vendor, who is not the seller, lessor, or management company. Such convenience fees are not being charged based on any method of payment. Any payment methods initiated through the online platform may be charged a convenience fee including, credit card, debit card, electronic checks, and cash payments. These fees are being charged by us for providing the convenience of an online payment channel. You agree that convenience fees may also apply to amounts refunded directly to your payment card, such as security deposit refunds.
7.3 If you are applying for a lease, no guarantees are made to you that a property rental is or will be made available. You understand that you will acquire no rights in or to a property rental until you accept and sign a rental agreement and pay all applicable application fees and security deposits.
7.4 You authorize the Property Client to obtain such credit reports, criminal histories, character reports, verification of rental and employment history as it deems necessary to verify all information in your application. You further understand that false, fraudulent, misleading or incomplete information may be grounds for denial of tenancy or subsequent eviction. There are no warranties offered by us or the Property Client, whether express or implied.
7.5 You hereby authorize Entrata or Payment Processor (if applicable), on behalf of the Property Client, to initiate transaction entries, including any convenience fees noted herein, to your transaction account number (including checking and savings accounts) and/or charges to your credit card. This billing will occur at the time of payment of each transaction.
7.6 You hereby acknowledge that we and/or the Property Client may apply a convenience fee with each transaction initiated through the payment gateway. We may amend this convenience fee at any time with or without notice. All convenience fees will be displayed on the payment screen prior to finalizing your transaction.
7.7 We and your Property Client make every effort to comply with all payment processing rules and regulations. If you believe you have been charged a convenience fee in error, please contact the Property Client to whom your payment is submitted.
7.8 We advise you that your credit card or bank account billing statement will show a charge item that displays the name of the merchant account of the payee. If you are unsure of that name, you agree to contact payee before processing this transaction so as to be sure to recognize the transaction when it appears on your monthly statement.
7.9 We reserve the right to cancel your transaction processing account at any time for any reason. Your payee may also decline/refuse any and all payments at any time and for any reason at which time we will return the payment amount entered into the Payment Gateway, minus convenience fees paid, in an appropriate and reasonable time frame.
7.10 We reserve the right to refuse processing service to you at any time for any reason. You also maintain the ability to discontinue use of the Payment Gateway at any time for any reason. Active recurring payments must be deleted before use of service is discontinued. It is your responsibility to terminate any and all recurring payments on your account before relocating or moving - otherwise charges will continue to be assessed to your billing account during the period designated for recurring payments to take place. You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Entrata, Payment Processor, Property Client, their affiliates, licensors and service providers, and its and their respective officers, directors, employees, contractors, agents, licensors, suppliers, successors and assigns for any recurring payments that are charged because you failed to cancel your recurring payment. You can cancel your service by contacting your Property Client. We, in our sole discretion, may cancel this service without notice.
7.11 If you believe a transaction was made improperly, we in our sole discretion may void, issue a credit, or rescind any transaction made through the Payment Gateway prior to remittance of such payment to your payee. Payment disputes arising after payment has been settled to your payee are between you and payee alone. We may act as an intermediary if such actions can reasonably and efficiently handle said problem.
7.12 Both you and payee mutually reserve the right to cancel, reverse or halt any and all checking or savings account or credit card transactions that have been cleared through the Payment Gateway.
7.13 By entering your payment information on this site, you hereby authorize Entrata to verify (a) the accuracy of such information, and (b) your authority to initiate any transaction on the account(s) entered, via a third party service provider, Giact Systems, LLC (“Giact”). Entrata uses Giact to confirm account ownership and transaction authority in real time, prior to payment or disbursement processing to reduce returns and fees, prevent fraud, and expedite payments. We will provide GIACT with basic information, such as your name, zip code, and banking information, to determine whether to accept or decline your payment. If your payment is declined, you will be notified accordingly.
7.14 Entrata and Payment Processor will comply with all applicable Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS). For purposes of PCI-DSS compliance, we are responsible for all cardholder data it possesses, stores, processes, or transmits on your behalf. Such cardholder data includes account numbers, card expiration dates, and CVV2 data. Unless otherwise noted, all personally identifiable information is used solely for the normal business purpose of offering and rendering services.
7.15 Entrata and Payment Processor act as the Property Client’s authorized agent in collecting payment owed by you to the Property Client. Payment by you to Entrata or Payment Processor shall be considered payment to the Property Client, extinguishing your payment obligation to the Property Client (in the amount paid by you) as if you had paid the Property Client directly.
Nothing on this website is intended to specifically solicit information from minors (people under eighteen (18) years old) or to seek to determine whether the visitor is a minor. If you are under eighteen (18), you are not permitted to submit to us any personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, email address, telephone number or any other information that would permit us to identify you. If you are under fourteen (14), it is against the law for us to ask you for that information, and we will not ask for it, nor do we want it. Anyone under 18 who wants to obtain any product from Entrata or otherwise submit any personally identifiable information to us should ask a parent or guardian to do it in his/her own name. Because such information will not be specifically identified as being from minors, users of this website should be aware that personally identifiable information submitted to it by minors may be treated in the same manner as information given by an adult. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under the age of 14 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under the age of 14, please contact your Property Client.
9.1 You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Entrata, its officers, directors, employees, agents, licensors, and suppliers, from and against all third party claims, actions or demands, liabilities, and settlements, including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees, arising in connection with your use of the Site or resulting from, or alleged to result from, your use of the Site or your violation of this Agreement or any law. We will not be responsible or liable for unauthorized access of facilities or to your data or programs due to accident, illegal or fraudulent means or devices.
9.2 We will not be liable for performance of services where delayed by war, riot, embargoes, strikes, or acts of our vendors and suppliers, concealed acts of workmen (whether ours or others), or accidents. The indemnification provided for in this article shall survive any termination of this agreement. You declare the following:
9.3 We reserve the right to suspend or terminate any account or transaction from you if you provide us with information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete. You may not use the Payment Gateway for any illegal purpose or in any manner inconsistent with the terms and conditions set forth in this agreement. You agree that our services shall only be used for lawful purposes. Any transaction or transmission which violates federal, state or local laws is expressly prohibited. You hereby authorize us to investigate and confirm the information herein. For this purpose we may utilize credit bureau/reporting agencies and/or our own agents. Upon your request, we will provide you with a copy of the results of such investigation if needed. However, you must request such documentation within fourteen (14) days of becoming aware of the investigation.
9.4 Any claim or legal action arising out of disputes, failures, misrepresentations, malfunctions, or defects shall be waived and in no event shall our liability exceed the total amount in convenience fees you paid to us hereunder.
9.5 You agree, as a company and/or as an individual, to defend, indemnify, and hold us harmless from any and all claims resulting from your use of any services contemplated under this agreement, which cause damage to you or any other party.
