Mobile Doorman may, at any time, for any reason, make changes to the Services and/or modify this Terms of Service in its sole and absolute discretion. If Mobile Doorman makes changes and/or modifications that affect your access to and/or use of the Services, we will post notice of the change and/or modification on this Terms of Service page and change the ‘Updated’ date set forth above. You agree that your continued use of the Services following changes and/or modifications will constitute your acceptance of such changes and/or modifications.

Please revisit this Terms of Service regularly to ensure that you stay informed of any changes and/or modifications.
Mobile Doorman allows residents and staff at residential properties to use our Service to manage tasks and/or communications. The Service includes but is not limited to the arrangement of maintenance requests, rent payment, building information and/or community boards. Mobile Doorman does not supervise the communication, activities and/or events posted through the Service and is not involved in any way with the actions of any individuals in your community. For every transaction that is commenced through our Service, you must make your own independent determination regarding the statements, event descriptions and/or the representations of the other party. Please use caution, common sense, and sound judgment when posting information, activities and/or otherwise accessing and/or using the Service.
Access to Services. Mobile Doorman retains the right, in our sole discretion, to deny service and/or access to and/or use of the Services to anyone at any time and for any reason. While we use reasonable efforts to keep the Services accessible, the Services and/or your account may be unavailable from time to time. You understand and agree that there may be interruptions to the Service and/or access to your account due to circumstances within Mobile Doorman’s control (i.e., routine maintenance) and outside of Mobile Doorman's control. You acknowledge and agree that the use of the Services is at your own risk, including without limitation the risk that you might be exposed to content that is offensive, indecent, inaccurate and/or objectionable. The Services may be modified, updated, suspended and/or discontinued at any time as determined by Mobile Doorman in its sole and absolute discretion and without notice and/or liability.
Creating an Account. You may establish an account through the Services. Your account requires you to (i) indicate agreement to this Terms of Service, (ii) provide contact information, and (iii) submit any other form of authentication required during the enrollment process, as determined by Mobile Doorman in its sole and absolute discretion. If you establish an account with Mobile Doorman, you agree to provide true, accurate and current information in connection with your account. You are responsible for updating and correcting information you have submitted to create and/or maintain your account. Any usernames and passwords used for the Services are for individual use only. You are solely responsible for maintaining the security and confidentiality of the password you use to access your account. You understand and agree that Mobile Doorman shall have no responsibility for any incident arising out of, or related to, your account settings. Mobile Doorman will assume that anyone using the Services and/or transacting through your account is you. Therefore, you further agree to immediately notify Mobile Doorman of any unauthorized use of your password and/or account and/or any other breach of security. You may only create and hold one (1) account that you are solely responsible for managing and are prohibited from using other disguised identities when using the Service. We may refuse to grant you an account with a name that impersonates someone else, if it may be illegal, vulgar, offensive, and/or if it may be protected by trademark and/or other proprietary rights, as determined by Mobile Doorman in its sole and absolute discretion. Your account is non-transferrable and may not be sold, combined and/or otherwise shared with any other person. If you violate this Terms of Service we may terminate your account immediately. Upon termination, the provisions of this Terms of Service that are by their nature intended to survive termination (including without limitation any disclaimers, limitations of liability and indemnities) shall survive such termination.
If we terminate your account, you may not subscribe under a new account unless we formally invite you. If you commit fraud and/or falsify information in connection with your access to and/or use of the Services, your account will be terminated immediately and we reserve the right to hold you liable for any and all damages that we suffer, and we may pursue legal action through relevant local and national law enforcement authorities and may notify your ‘Internet Service Provider’ of any fraudulent activity we associate with you and/or your access to and/or use of the Services.
Electronic Communications. By creating an account, you agree to receive certain communications in connection with the Services. For example, you might receive comments, promotions, events and/or features from your property manager and/or by Mobile Doorman. When you access and/or use the Services, you are communicating with us electronically, and you consent to receive communications from us electronically. Mobile Doorman and/or your property manager will communicate with you by e-mail and/or by posting notices on the Service. You acknowledge and agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and/or other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.

YOU EXPRESSLY UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW:
THE SERVICE, AND ANY CONTENT, ARE PROVIDED BY MOBILE DOORMAN TO YOU ON AN "AS IS," "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS, EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS TERMS OF SERVICE. MOBILE DOORMAN DOES NOT MAKE ANY OTHER WARRANTY OF ANY KIND WHETHER EXPRESS, STATUTORY OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, QUIET ENJOYMENT, MERCHANTABILITY, AND/OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ACCURACY, AND FROM COURSE OF DEALING, USAGE AND/OR TRADE PRACTICE, ALL OF WHICH MOBILE DOORMAN EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, MOBILE DOORMAN AND/OR ITS LICENSORS MAKE NO WARRANTY THAT (A) THE SERVICES OR MATERIALS WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS AND/OR WILL BE CONSTANTLY AVAILABLE, UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE AND/OR ERROR-FREE; (B) THE RESULTS THAT MAY BE OBTAINED FROM THE USE OF THE SERVICES WILL BE EFFECTIVE, ACCURATE AND/OR RELIABLE; AND/OR (C) MOBILE DOORMAN WILL NOT BE LIABLE AND/OR OTHERWISE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY FAILURE OR DELAY IN UPDATING THE SERVICES AND/OR ANY CONTENT. NO ADVICE AND/OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL AND/OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED BY YOU FROM MOBILE DOORMAN OR THROUGH YOUR ACCESS TO AND/OR USE OF THE SERVICES SHALL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY STATED IN THIS TERMS OF SERVICE.
YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE AND CONTENT IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. IN NO EVENT SHALL MOBILE DOORMAN, ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, PARTNERS, LICENSORS, AND/OR SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE TO YOU AND/OR ANYONE ELSE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL AND/OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING THOSE RESULTING FROM LOSS OF USE, DATA AND/OR PROFITS, WHETHER OR NOT FORESEEABLE, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENE), WARRANTY, STRICT LIABILITY, AND/OR ANY OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY, EVEN IF MOBILE DOORMAN HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBIITY OF SUCH DAMAGES IN ADVANCE. THE FOREGOING SHALL APPLY DESPITE ANY NEGLIGENCE, MISCONDUCT, ERRORS AND/OR OMISSIONS BY MOBILE DOORMAN, ITS EMPLOYEES, REPRESENTATIVES AND/OR AGENTS. BECAUSE SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION AND/OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL AND/OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, IN SUCH STATES, MOBILE DOORMAN’S LIABILITY IS LIMITED TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE EXPRESSLY SET FORTH HEREIN, IN THE EVENT YOU ARE DISSATISFIED WITH THE SERVICE, RELATED SERVICES AND/OR HAVE ANY OTHER GRIEVANCE, YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY SHALL BE THE RIGHT TO DISCONTINUE ACCESS TO AND/OR USE OF THE SERVICES.
MOBILE DOORMAN’S MAXIMUM AGGREGATE LIABILITY TO YOU FOR DIRECT DAMAGES THAT YOU SUFFER IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR ACCESS TO AND/OR USE OF THE SERVICES IS LIMITED TO THE LESSER OF (i) THE AMOUNT PAID, IF ANY, BY YOU TO MOBILE DOORMAN IN CONNECTION WITH THE SERVICES, OR (ii) ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100.00).
You may not link to the Services without our written permission. If you are interested in linking to the Services, please contact email@example.com.
You may have other agreements with Mobile Doorman. Such agreements are separate and in addition to this Terms of Services. This Terms of Service does not modify, revise or amend the terms of any other agreements you may have with Mobile Doorman unless expressly agreed to by the parties in writing.
The information available on the Services is intended to be a general information resource regarding the matters covered, and is not tailored to your specific circumstance. Mobile Doorman does not, will not and cannot refer, recommend and/or endorse any specific professional service, product and/or procedures that are advertised on the Services. The Service is not a substitute for professional advice, and you should not construe this as legal, accounting, medical and/or other professional advice.
Mobile Doorman respects the intellectual property rights of others and expects you to do the same. We reserve the right to block access to and/or remove material that we believe in good faith to be copyrighted material that has been illegally distributed by you and/or other third parties and remove and discontinue service to repeat offenders. We will respond to clear notices of copyright infringement when you provide the following:
Contact information for Mobile Doorman’s DMCA Agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement is: Mobile Doorman, Inc. Attn: Copyright Agent, 220 North Green Street, Chicago, Illinois 60607 ( firstname.lastname@example.org ).
The Copyright Agent will not remove content from the Services in response to phone or email notifications regarding allegedly infringing content, since a valid DMCA notice must be signed, under penalty of perjury, by the copyright owner or by a person authorized to act on his or her behalf. Please submit such notifications by fax or ordinary mail only and as further described by this Section. The Copyright Agent should be contacted only if you believe that your work has been used or copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement and that such infringement is occurring on the Service linked to and/or from the Service. All other inquiries directed to the Copyright Agent will not be responded to.
Disputes. We want to address your concerns without filing a formal legal case. Before filing a claim against Mobile Doorman, you agree to try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting us at email@example.com. We will try to resolve the dispute by contacting you via email, but if we cannot resolve the dispute within thirty (30) days from our receipt of notice of such dispute, you and/or Mobile Doorman agree to resolve any claims related to this Terms of Service, if applicable, through final and binding arbitration, except as forth under ‘Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate’ section below and/or you opt out as described below.
Opt-Out. You can opt-out and decline this agreement to arbitrate by contacting Mobile Doorman within thirty (30) days from the date that you first became subject to this arbitration provision (i.e.: the date you initially accepted this Terms of Service). You must write us at Mobile Doorman, Attn: Opt-Out Arbitration, 220 North Green Street, Chicago, IL 60607. If you opt out, neither you nor Mobile Doorman can require the other to participate in an arbitration proceeding.
Arbitration Procedures. Except in the event the claim meets the requirements set forth in the ‘Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate’ section below and/or if you opt out of arbitration as described below, all claims shall be settled by binding arbitration in accordance with the commercial arbitration rules, in effect at the time the proceedings begin, of the American Arbitration Association. Any such controversy and/or claim shall be arbitrated on an individual basis, and shall not be consolidated in any arbitration with any claim or controversy of any other party. All information relating to and/or disclosed by any party in connection with the arbitration of any disputes shall be treated by the parties, their representatives, and the arbitrator as proprietary business information and shall not be disclosed without prior written authorization of the disclosing party. The arbitration shall be held in Cook County, Illinois USA or any other location we agree to. Each party shall bear the burden of its own counsel fees incurred in connection with any arbitration proceedings.
Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate. Either you and/or Mobile Doorman may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in Cook County, Illinois. Mobile Doorman may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use and/or abuse of the Services, breach of Mobile Doorman’s confidential information and/or intellectual property infringement (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright and/or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration and/or the informal dispute-resolution process described herein.
Judicial forum for disputes. In the event that the agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to you and/or your claim, you and Mobile Doorman agree that any judicial proceeding (other than small claims actions) will be brought in the federal or state courts of Cook County, Illinois. Both you and Mobile Doorman consent to the foregoing venue and jurisdiction.

For optimal user experience, we suggest receiving notifications through our app and/or email; however, you may choose to opt-in to receive text notifications from Mobile Doorman and/or your property management through the Services. By providing your mobile number through the Services, you acknowledge that you consent to receive mobile text alerts from Mobile Doorman. Although Mobile Doorman does not assume the duty and/or obligation to monitor any messages created, posted and/or sent by property management and/or any third parties, Mobile Doorman reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to monitor any and all messages created and/or sent by property management and/or any third parties at any time without prior notice to ensure that they conform to any usage guidelines and/or policies relating to our Services. The number of text notifications you receive will be dependent on activity under your account, such as how many packages you may receive and/or alerts you have signed up to receive through the Services. You understand that you do not have to sign up for the text message program that we offer. You further understand that we will send such text messages using automated technology. If you believe the message reached you in error, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Alert Management. You can manage all of your notifications within our Services. You may cancel text messages by changing the settings in the Services and/or by texting STOP to any message you received from us.

However, standard message and data rates do apply for the services through your third party service provider/carrier. Please check your ‘SMS’ rate plan that you setup with your third party service provider/carrier.
Terms and Conditions. You must be thirteen (13) years or older and a legal resident of the United States to receive and/or send text messages in relation to the Services. By accessing and/or using the Services, you certify that you are at least thirteen (13) years of age and meet any other applicable age and residency requirements. You acknowledge that ‘SMS’ messages are distributed via third party mobile network providers and, therefore, Mobile Doorman cannot control certain factors relating to message delivery.

Mobile Doorman does not claim and/or guarantee availability and/or performance of the text message service described herein, including without limitation liability for transmission delays and/or message failures.
If any provision and/or term of this Terms of Service shall become and/or be declared illegal, invalid and/or unenforceable for any reason whatsoever, such term and/or provision shall be divisible from the other terms and conditions and shall be deemed to be deleted from them. This Terms of Service shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the State of Illinois, without reference to its choice of law rules. If an applicable law is in conflict with any part of this Terms of Service, this Terms of Service will be deemed modified to conform to the law and the other provisions will not be affected by any such modification. No waiver by either you and/or Mobile Doorman of any breach and/or default and/or failure to exercise any right allowed under this Terms of Service is a waiver of any preceding and/or subsequent breach and/or default and/or a waiver and/or forfeiture of any similar and/or future rights under this Terms of Service.
