In order to use the Services, you need Internet access. You also need equipment to access the Services, including a computer, modem and other devices. BHI is not responsible for the costs of your Internet access or any equipment needed.
Although we attempt to make sure all of the information on the Sites, including but not limited to price, square footage, elevation and floorplan images, and lot size, is accurate, by continuing to use the Sites, you acknowledge, understand and agree that it may not be current, accurate, or complete and that BHI and its suppliers do not warrant or guarantee such accuracy.

You may not share your account with anyone else. You may make a single copy of the individual screens you see when you use the Services, but only for your personal, non-commercial use, and not for further distribution or transfer to others. You may not-and agree not to-modify, reformat, copy, display, distribute, transmit, publish, license, create derivative works from, transfer or sell any information, products or services obtained from the Services.

YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU HAVE NO RIGHTS TO THE SERVICES OR ANY OTHER BHI PROPERTY EXCEPT AS INDICATED IN THESE TERMS.
The Services are not intended for individuals under the age of majority in their province or territory. If you believe we might have any information from or about an individual under the relevant age of majority, please let us know by using the contact information in these Terms.
Parental control protections (such as computer hardware, software or filtering services) are commercially available that may assist parents in limiting access to content that may be harmful to minors.
In some parts of our Services, you may be able to participate in surveys, provide ratings, or reviews, post comments or questions, or otherwise contribute content for us to use and display through the Services.

We can also suspend or terminate use of the Services by anyone who we believe does not follow these Terms.
CONDUCT OF REGISTERED USERS AND VISITORS
We believe that all registered users and visitors benefit from basic rules regarding conduct while using any of the chat room, bulletin board, e-mail, messaging or discussion area Services, if offered, so that everyone feels free to share opinions and ideas. The free flow of ideas is jeopardized when a few individuals act irresponsibly.
To help everyone have a positive experience, we ask, and you agree, to follow the following basic rules of conduct when using the Services:
- You will follow these Terms and all applicable laws;
- You will never give your password to anyone (no BHI employee will ever ask for it) and you will not provide your billing or credit information except to make a purchase;
- You will not harass, threaten or abuse other people when using the Services in any manner;
- You will not interfere with others’ use of the Sites, including by interrupting other users’ sessions, scrolling down (automatically or manually) to make it difficult for them, or otherwise act in a way that negatively affects other users’ enjoyment of the Services;
- You will not upload, post, e-mail, or otherwise make available any User Content that is obscene or may be hateful or offensive on racial, ethnic, sexual or any other grounds; is harmful, vulgar or distasteful; or is defamatory, libelous, or invades another person’s privacy or proprietary rights, including any patent, trademark, trade secret, or copyright of any party;
- You will not attempt to harvest any screen names or e-mail addresses for any commercial use;
- You will not collect or store personal information about any other individual on the Services, or otherwise stalk, repeatedly contact or harass another user;

- You will not send any bulk unsolicited advertising, promotional information, e-mail or other solicitation (including without limitation junk mail, “spam,” chain letters or pyramid schemes of any sort) to any person through the use of the Services, except in areas that specifically authorize you to do so (auction forums, for instances).
Please report any violations of these Terms to email@example.com.
If you violate any of the guidelines set forth above, or any other aspect of these Terms, we reserve the right to suspend or terminate your rights to use the Services without giving you any notice.

We may give you notice by displaying notices or links to notices generally on the Services. IN THE EVENT THAT YOU DO NOT AGREE TO A CHANGE, PLEASE DO NOT ACCESS OR USE THE SERVICES IN ANY MANNER FOR ANY PURPOSE.
SCHEDULED AND UNSCHEDULED DOWN TIMES for the sites

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. If you have questions regarding this, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

EQUAL HOUSING OPPORTUNITY AND HOUSEING FOR OLDER PERSONS
All real estate advertising on the Sites or delivered through the Services is subject to legal obligations which makes it illegal to advertise any preference, limitation, or discrimination based on a number of grounds, such as race, color, religion, sex, handicap, sexual orientation, gender identity, and familial status, or an intention, to make any such preference, limitation or discrimination. Familial status includes children under the age of 18 living with parents or legal custodians; pregnant women; and people securing custody of children under 18.
While BHI will not knowingly accept any advertising for real estate that is in violation of the law, we do not independently validate that these advertisers are compliant with all relevant non-discrimination laws.
To complain of discrimination, contact your provincial or territorial Human Rights Commission.
If any dispute arises between you and BDX, both parties will attempt in good faith to resolve the dispute.
These Terms are governed by, and will be interpreted in accordance with, the laws of the province of Ontario and the federal laws of Canada without regard to any choice of law provisions. Any such claims must be brought before the courts in the City of Toronto, Ontario, and you irrevocably consent to the exclusive judgement of such courts. Notwithstanding the foregoing, both you and BHI can apply to any court of competent jurisdiction to obtain injunctive or other emergency relief.
Unless prohibited by law, you agree to waive any right you might have to participate in any class action against BHI.
These Terms are the entire agreement between you and BHI. They supersede any and all prior or contemporaneous agreements between you and BHI relating to your use of the Sites or the Services. If any part of these Terms is determined to be invalid or unenforceable, it will not impact any other provision of these Terms, all of which will remain in full force and effect.
These Terms are not assignable or transferable by you without BHI’s prior written consent. These Terms will enure to the benefit of, and will be binding on, the heirs, executors, administrators, successors, and assigns of the parties.
