Permissible Use. Unless you are a real estate or lending professional acting in your professional capacity, you agree to use the Services for your personal use, and your commercial use is limited to transactions done on your own behalf. The commercial use of real estate is limited to providing information to consumers via the Services or, where authorized, taking actions on behalf of a consumer client (e.g., posting a home for sale). The Services may be used only for transactions in residential real estate and may not be used for transactions in commercial real estate, which includes, commercially zoned properties, timeshares, and vacation rentals. Subject to the restrictions set forth in the following paragraphs, you may copy information from the Services only as necessary for your personal use to view, save, print, fax and/or e-mail such information. You agree otherwise not to reproduce, modify, distribute, display or otherwise provide access to, create derivative works from, decompile, disassemble or reverse engineer any portion of the Services.
Restrictions and Additional Terms. You agree not to remove or modify any copyright or other intellectual property that appear in the Services. You will not use the Services for resale, service bureau, time-sharing or other similar purposes. Further:
Automated Queries. Automated queries (including screen and database scraping, spiders, robots, crawlers and any other automated activity with the purpose of obtaining information from the Services) are strictly prohibited on the Services, unless you have received express written permission from GPT. As a limited exception, publicly available search engines and similar Internet navigation tools (“Search Engines”) may query the Services and provide an index with links to the Services’ Web pages, only to the extent such unlicensed “fair use” is allowed by applicable copyright law. Search Engines are not permitted to query or search information protected by a security verification system (“captcha”) which limits access to human users.
If you, as a consumer, choose to list your property; accept an offer from a real estate agent; or contact a real estate agent, through the Services, you authorize GPT to provide your name, address and contact information and other identifying information you provide to the real estate agent you choose. Further, you acknowledge that, by submitting your listing or accepting an offer from a real estate agent, you may receive telephone calls or electronic communications from or on behalf of the real estate agent at the telephone number(s) you provide.
Materials You Provide; Account Use; Privacy; Third Party Web Sites. For materials you post or otherwise provide to GP Techware in connection with the Services or related to the Services (your “Submission”), you grant GPT an irrevocable, perpetual, royalty-free worldwide license to (a) use, copy, distribute, transmit, publicly display, publicly perform, reproduce, edit, modify, prepare derivative works of or incorporate into other works, and translate your Submission, in connection with the Services or in any other media, and (b) sublicense these rights, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. GPT will not pay you for your Submission or to exercise any rights related to your Submission set forth in the preceding sentence. GPT may remove or modify your Submission at any time and for any reason. For each Submission, you agree to provide accurate and complete information and represent that you have all rights necessary to grant GPT the rights in this paragraph, that GPT’s use of the Submission will not infringe any third party rights and that the Submission complies with Sections 1 and 2 above. You are solely responsible for all Submissions made through your user account(s) on the Services or that you otherwise make available through the Services.
You understand and agree that the Services may include advertisements, and that these are necessary to support the Services. To help make the advertisements relevant and useful to you, GPT may serve advertisements based on the information we collect from you or in relation to your interaction on our site. See the Privacy Section for more details.
The Role of GPT; Disclaimer. GPT is not a licensed real estate broker or agent in any state and does not broker real estate transactions. GPT does not act as a real estate agent for you or any other user. GPT does not sell, buy, or negotiate the purchase, sale, or exchange of real property. Further, GPT does not lease or rent, offer to lease or rent, or negotiate the lease of real property or otherwise aid or assist in the lease of real property. GPT does not and is not responsible for and makes no warranties or representations pertaining to the any real estate agent hired through the Services. GPT does not endorse or recommend the products of any particular real estate agent or third party service provider, unless explicitly recommended or endorsed. Nothing contained in the Services is an offer to sell your property. Only a licensed real estate professional can offer to sell your property. GPT is not an agent of either any consumer or any real estate agent. GPT is only providing an administrative service to consumers and participating real estate agents. GPT assumes no responsibility for any result or consequence related directly or indirectly to any action or inaction that consumers take based on the Services, including and any other information available there.
GPT is free to consumers, except in the case of a re-bid of a property. For real estate professionals, the service fees we charge for using our Services are based on a formula described on the bid page and further described in the FAQ’s. We may change our fees from time to time without notice. By submitting your bid, you agree to the fees charged.
Payments. Real estate agents must have a payment method on file when bidding or using the Services and pay all fees and applicable taxes associated with our Services by the payment due date, which is typically when a bid is accepted. If your payment method fails or your account is past due, we may collect fees owed by charging other payment methods on file with us, retaining collection agencies and legal counsel. In addition, you will be subject to late fees equal to two (2%) percent per month (up to the maximum amount permissible by law) and collections fees or the collection agencies we retain, may also report information about your account to credit bureaus, and as a result, late payments, missed payments, or other defaults on your account may be reflected in your credit report. To protect GPT from risk of non-payment, a hold may be placed on your payment method to secure your payment for a winning bid.
Participating Real Estate Agents. The real estate agents participating on the Services are solely responsible for their services to consumers. GPT shall not be liable for any damages or costs of any type arising out of or in any way connected with any consumers’ use of the Services, or the services offered by real estate agents. GPT is not responsible for any errors, misrepresentations or delays caused by consumers or any real estate agents in the selling process. GPT reserves the right, at any time and in its sole discretion, to discontinue, suspend, or terminate the participation of any real estate agent or other user from the Services. When an individual real estate agent applies to use the Services, GPT uses commercially reasonable efforts to confirm the real estate agents license (in the states claimed in the agent profile) and/or employment with a selling institution. However, consumers should confirm credentials if they choose to hire an agent. Real estate agents pay a fee to GPT to use the Services. Such fees are not considered part of the real estate transaction.
Linked Materials and Third-Party Materials. The Services include links to third-party products, services and websites, as well as materials provided by third parties. GPT does not endorse, and takes no responsibility for such products, services, websites, and materials. You understand that GPT has no obligation to, and generally does not, approve or monitor materials provided by third parties through the Services. Your dealings with any third party arising in connection with the Services are solely between you and such third party, and GPT takes no responsibility for any damages or costs of any type arising out of or in any way connected with your dealings with these third parties.
Claims of Copyright Infringement. GPT respects the intellectual property rights of others, and asks that everyone using the Services do the same. Anyone who believes that their work has been reproduced on the Services in a way that constitutes copyright infringement may notify GPT’s copyright agent in accordance with Title 17, United States Code, Section 512(c)(2), by providing the following information:
Identification of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed;
Identification of the material that you claim is infringing and needs to be removed, including a description of where it is located on the Services so that the copyright agent can locate it;
Your address, telephone number, and, if available, e-mail address, so that the copyright agent may contact you about your complaint; and
A signed statement that the above information is accurate; that you have a good faith belief that the identified use of the material is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and, under penalty of perjury, that you are the copyright owner or are authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf in this situation.
Notices of copyright infringement claims should be sent as follows:
1000 S Lenola Road, Building One, Suite 105, Maple Shade, NJ 08052
By e-mail: DMCA to firstname.lastname@example.org
By facsimile: (856) 600-4455
If you give notice of copyright infringement by e-mail, we may begin investigating the alleged copyright infringement; however, we must receive your signed statement by mail or as an attachment to your e-mail before we are required to take any action.

At GP Techware, LLC (“GP Techware” or “GPT” or “we” or “us” or “our”), we value users’ privacy. Our website, our mobile and desktop applications, our other properties and/or our related services are collectively known as the “Services,” or, each individually, a “Service”. GP Techware respects your privacy and is committed to protecting your personal information.
Generally, GPT does not use advertising. However, from time to time the Services may be supported by advertising revenue. If we use advertising, we will try to make advertisements relevant and useful to you. Therefore, we may serve advertisements to you based on the information we collect from you or in relation to your interaction with the Services.
We keep information private between you and GP Techware, except as explained below.
Collection of Information
When you use the Services, we collect a variety of information.
Information you provide. When using the Services, you may provide information about yourself, such as name, address, phone number, email, pictures of your home and details around a potential real estate transaction. This may occur, for example, when you register on the Services, list a home, correspond with a real estate agent or property owner via the Services, speak to a GPT representative, engage with us on Social Media or complete other forms. You may also provide information if you communicate via email. We may combine this information with other information we collect from your interaction with the Services or from other companies.
In addition, when you make a bid or provide a re-listing through the Services, GP Techware may collect your credit/debit card information. This information is secured using industry-standard encryption technology. GP Techware will use this information solely to complete your order and will not share this information with outside parties, except to the extent necessary to complete the order or comply with applicable law.

You may adjust settings on your mobile device and mobile browser regarding cookies and sharing of certain information, such as your mobile device model or the language your mobile device uses, by adjusting the privacy and security settings on your mobile device. Please refer to the instructions provided by your mobile service provider or mobile device manufacturer.
Usage logs. When you use the Services, your computer or other electronic device communicates a variety of information to computer servers, including the existence of cookies, your Internet Protocol address, and information about your browser program. We also create a record of what information you are requesting, such as the page or subject areas you’re visiting.
Calls to GP Techware or to third parties through GP Communicator may be recorded or monitored for quality assurance and customer service purposes. If a call is recorded between you and a third party, it will be deemed private information of both you and the third party, and may be released to either of you.
Usage and Disclosure
In general, GPT uses the information collected from you to communicate with you and operate our Services. GP Techware also uses this information to respond to your requests and present you with advertising that we believe will be of interest or useful to you.
Your privacy is important and we are committed to protecting information that identifies you personally, where you have chosen to keep it private (“Personal Information”). We will only share Personal Information that you provide outside the public areas of the Services in the following circumstances:
When you consent or direct GP Techware to share the Personal Information. For example, if you choose to contact a real estate agent or lender through the Services, your name and email address and other information will appear to the recipient of the message. If a real estate agent makes a bid, their profile information will be available to users.
Merger or sale. If and when GP Techware is involved in a merger, acquisition, or any form of transfer or sale of some or all of its business, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding. Personal Information may be transferred along with the business.
Real Estate Information
GPT strives to provide open and transparent information about real estate markets. For example, we make available past sales prices for homes, and allow any user to post a question or answer about a given home. Many times, this information is already publicly available. As long as discussion surrounds real estate and not individuals, we intend to keep this information available through the Services
Email and Telephone Calls
You may receive email or telephone calls from GP Techware for a variety of reasons – for example, if you took an action through the Services, you signed up for a regular report, or you posted your home for bidding and a real estate agent or professional sent you a message. Real estate professionals may also be notified of bidding opportunities via email or telephone calls. We respect your desire to manage email correspondence. If you have an account with GPT, you can select your preferences through your account settings. Also, you can manage your receipt of some types of communication by following the instructions included in the email we send you. Please note that, even if you unsubscribe from certain email correspondences, we may still need to email you with important transactional or administrative information.
In addition, if you have provided your email address to us, we may use a scrambled, unreadable form (a hash) of your email address to deliver tailored advertisements to you on the Services or on other websites, including via Facebook’s Custom Audience Feature or other similar Facebook tools. We will not share your email address with Facebook
You may opt-out of cookie tracking and analysis as described in the section below entitled ‘Opting Out of Collection of Information’. The Services do not otherwise respond to ‘do not track’ signals.

GP Techware marketing service providers. If you do not want GPT and its marketing services providers to follow your usage of our Services via cookies and Web beacons, you can opt out of Cookies/Web beacons from: comScore, Google Analytics, Omniture and Yahoo! Opting out of these services does not mean you will no longer receive online advertising.
