WEBSITE TERMS OF USE


Welcome to the rental.duproprio.com website (the "Website"), which is owned and administered by DUPROPRIO INC. ("DUPROPRIO"). These website terms of use (the "Website Terms of Use") constitute a legal agreement between you and DUPROPRIO concerning access to and use of the Website. PLEASE READ THE WEBSITE TERMS OF USE CAREFULLY before browsing the Website or using the services it describes (the "Services").

1. Advisory

The purpose of the Website is to help users rent their properties (the ?Properties?) without going through a third party, without paying any commission, all without charge. It is up to the owner and the tenant to complete any eventual lease, with the understanding that DUPROPRIO will not be part of the rental. In the interests of transparency for the potential leasers who browse the Website, the telephone number posted on the listed Property must be the owner?s. In the event that the rental of the Property is entrusted to a real estate agent, it is not permitted to refer potential tenants to the agent through the content of the advertisement (telephone number, email, description, etc.) otherwise the advertisement will be removed from the Website.

Although DUPROPRIO strives to use its best efforts to keep the Website secure and maintain its integrity, DUPROPRIO MAKES NO WARRANTY OR REPRESENTATION WHATSOEVER REGARDING THE PROPERTIES, THE VALIDITY OR ACCURACY OF THEIR DESCRIPTIONS, THE AUTHENTICITY OF THE LISTINGS OR THE IDENTITY OF THE USERS, OWNERS OR POTENTIAL TENANTS, OR THE CAPACITY OF THE OWNERS TO RENT THEIR PROPERTIES OR OF THE POTENTIAL TENANTS TO LEASE THEM.

DUPROPRIO IS NOT A REAL ESTATE BROKERAGE AND DOES NOT OFFER ANY REAL ESTATE BROKERAGE SERVICES.

2. No Advice

From time to time, the Website may provide information on the various aspects of renting a Property ("Information"). Such Information is provided solely for educational purposes and shall in no event be construed as advice, an opinion, recommendation or action plan.
