Timeshare Brokers MLS Terms of Service Version 1 (Posted 03.01.2015)

 

To maintain a safe and helpful community for our users, we may suspend or remove, without notice or refund, any user we believe is violating our terms, the rights of our users, or otherwise negatively impacting our service. All decisions regarding inappropriate conduct and use of the site are solely ours. In the event Timeshare Brokers MLS merges with, or is acquired by, another company, the terms of service will transfer to the new entity, who will assume the responsibilities associated with your account.

 

General Conduct on Timeshare Brokers MLS

 

Timeshare Brokers MLs is an LLC registered in the state of Florida, and is governed by that state's laws. If there are laws in your state or location that apply to your participation on our site, or the sale of timeshare interest, you are responsible for understanding them and being in compliance. We may post any laws that are brought to your attention, but take no responsibility for your compliance or the compliance of others that you may contact.

 

If there are rules the home resort, homeowners association, or applicable exchange company requires for you to engage in a sale, it is the responsibility of the listing member, not Timeshare Brokers MLS, to comply with, those rules. As we are informed about these rules, we may provide information about them, but are not responsible for your compliance or the compliance of others who you contact.
