Nature of Customer's Business
If Customer or an Affiliate of Customer owns properties and intends to market them directly via the public LoopNet marketplace, ProspectList (formerly PropertyPush) or LoopLink, such Customer represents to LoopNet that it either (a) markets, using its own facilities, more than 2/3 of those properties which it owns and controls, or (b) markets properties for third parties where such third party brokerage services account for more than twenty percent (20%) of the total revenues of the entity.
Customer agrees to pay for all products ordered through the LoopNet website or via the LoopNet sales team using the payment method indicated, and provides LoopNet express authorization to charge said fees to the Customer's payment provider at time of purchase or renewal. Fees owed depend on the specific type and quantity of LoopNet products, services, information, or deliverables (collectively "Deliverables") ordered. Payment of fees shall not be contingent on any events other than the delivery of the ordered Deliverables. Any attorney fees, court costs, or other costs incurred in collection of delinquent undisputed amounts shall be the responsibility of and paid for by Customer. If payment is not current, LoopNet may immediately cease to provide any and all Deliverables to the customer.
The fees do not include sales, use, excise or any other taxes or fees now or hereafter imposed by any governmental authority with respect to the Deliverables. At LoopNet's option, Customer shall pay such taxes or fees directly or pay to LoopNet any such taxes or fees immediately upon invoicing by LoopNet. LoopNet is required to collect sales tax on purchases in select states. Recurring charges will include sales tax in accordance with applicable laws of your state. To view your billing information, visit My Account.
The fees paid for monthly subscriptions are non-refundable, regardless of whether the subscription is terminated prior to the end of the then-current monthly billing period. Discounts received via a product bundle are subject to removal when product(s) in bundle are canceled. No partial month refunds will be provided.
Monthly subscriptions will automatically renew using the Customer's current credit card account number unless Customer cancels their subscription on the LoopNet Website at http://www.LoopNet.com/ProductCancellations three (3) days prior to the renewal date to cancel such subscription. All other subscriptions, including quarterly and annual commitment subscriptions, will automatically renew for additional terms equaling the original term unless Customer provides LoopNet with thirty (30) days' advance notice of non-renewal. Quarterly and annual commitment subscriptions may be canceled as of the end of term only; no mid-term cancellations will be permitted. All cancellation and non-renewal requests will be processed within five (5) business days. Once the cancellation is processed, a confirmation email will be sent via the customer's email account on record with LoopNet.
If Customer has a question about a cancellation, Customer should contact LoopNet Client Services at Help@LoopNet.com or at 888-567-7442. The Company reserves the right to change its fees or billing methods at any time. The Company will provide timely notice to the affected Customers of any such changes.
It is the Customer's responsibility to promptly provide the Company with any contact or billing information changes or updates (including phone number, email address, credit card numbers, etc.). Account updates should be made online via the "My Account" tab within the "My LoopNet" section, once Customer has logged into www.LoopNet.com. LoopNet does not validate all credit card information required by the Customer's payment provider to secure payment.
The Customer must notify LoopNet about any billing problems or discrepancies within 90 days after charges first appear on their Account statement. If it is not brought to LoopNet's attention within 90 days, Customer agrees to waive their right to dispute such problems or discrepancies.
LoopNet offers two distinct paid subscription membership products to its active commercial property listing service: (i) a paid subscription product for those Customers who primarily utilize the Service to actively list and market commercial properties available for sale and/or for lease ("Premium Lister" or "Premium Lister subscription"), and (ii) a paid subscription product for those Customers who primarily utilize the Service to actively search for commercial properties available for sale and/or for lease ("Premium Searcher" or "Premium Searcher subscription") (Premium Lister and Premium Searcher collectively, "Premium Subscriptions").
A Customer who purchases either a Premium Lister subscription or a Premium Searcher subscription is a "Premium User." Premium Subscription privileges are granted by LoopNet to individuals exclusively and are granted specifically to the subscribing Premium User only.
Premium Subscription rights cannot be assigned, sublicensed, distributed, shared, viewed, accessed, or otherwise transferred to anyone other than the subscribing Premium User without the express written permission of LoopNet.
Premium Subscription privileges are subject to change from time to time and may be subject to property listing, property searching, and member directory searching limitations.
Under Premium Lister subscription, one (1), four (4), ten (10) and fifteen (15) Premium Listing Plans are available for purchase online; higher Premium Listing Plans are available for purchase by calling (888) 567-7442 or emailing MemberServices@LoopNet.com.
Any listing on which the Primary Contact is a Premium Lister and is within Plan will receive Featured exposure; listings above Plan will receive exposure as Standard listings.
Customer acknowledges that LoopNet (in addition to its other remedies) can cancel and prohibit Premium Subscription privileges to any individual, organization, or group that does not abide by the terms and conditions set forth herein and/or can refuse any or all membership privileges.
LoopNet also has the right to refuse service to any customer or company that has delinquent charges that remain unpaid and to impose additional charges to reactivate Premium Subscription or other membership privileges.
Premium Subscriptions continue to renew at the prevailing level regardless of Customer's listing or searching activity on LoopNet.com.
Premium Subscriptions will automatically renew to the credit card number provided for initial payment unless the Customer cancels their subscription on the LoopNet Website at http://www.LoopNet.com/ProductCancellations prior to the renewal date to cancel such subscription.
The Company reserves the right to change its fees, payment frequency, or billing methods at any time. The Company will provide timely notice of any such changes.
After adding a listing at the Standard exposure level, the Customer will have the option to change current membership level to a Premium Lister with a Premium Listing Plan which will provide Premium exposure for the listing. For all Plan changes submitted online, the Customer will be charged a prorated change plan fee for the remaining days in current billing cycle, and Customer's subscription rate will be adjusted commencing with the next bill date. If Customer was above Plan, Service will upgrade the most recently created Standard Listings to Premium until Customer is within Plan. Prepaid fees on such Premium Searcher Memberships when converted to a Premium Lister Membership will be allocated based on the number of months remaining on the contract period, beginning with the month following receipt of the Premium User's request to change from Premium Searcher Membership to Premium Lister Membership, but may be subject to adjustment according to current monthly product pricing and subject to adjustment for any incentives or discounts provided for said prepayment. No partial month refunds will be provided. Premium Users may change current membership level to a lower Premium Listing Plan or to a Premium Searcher subscription by clicking to "Change Plan or Cancel Membership" under "My Account". Membership change will take effect end of term for Premium Users in a quarterly or annual commitment. Once effective, service will downgrade the earliest created Premium Listing to a Standard Listing until Customer is within Plan or there are no additional listings to downgrade. Prepaid fees will be refunded based on the number of months remaining on the contract period, beginning with the month following receipt of online request submission to change membership level, but may be subject to adjustment according to current monthly product pricing and subject to adjustment for any incentives or discounts provided for said prepayment. No partial month refunds will be provided.
Users subscribing to one product have the right to purchase certain other LoopNet products or services on the LoopNet website at a discount. In order to be eligible for the Point of Purchase or Add-On Product discounts, your Subscription must be current and active, in good standing, and not have any outstanding delinquent charges. LoopNet products and services offered on the LoopNet website available for the Point of Purchase or Add-On Product discounts include: Premium subscription, Property Facts subscriptions; Property Comps subscriptions; Pro Tools. The Point of Purchase or Add-On Product discounts do not apply to any other LoopNet products or services. Customers who purchase Single 24-Hour Premium Searcher Memberships are not eligible for the Discount Price on additional purchases. Premium Users who have existing subscriptions for Property Comps (in accordance with the provisions detailed in the Property Comps Subscriptions section immediately below) may contact MemberServices@LoopNet.com to receive the Premium Discount Price on their subscriptions, commencing with the next billing cycle; however, no refunds, adjustments, and/or credits will be given for past monies paid on such Property Comps subscriptions.
Campaigns are available for purchase by registered members for member advertising (Premium status not required) by contacting LoopNet Advertising Sales at (888) 207-9234. Once active, the campaign will appear on LoopNet.com desktop, LoopNet.com mobile and IOS apps. Searchers who click the advertisement will be directed to a lead form. Leads will be available for each campaign by clicking the 'Leads' link, accessible via 'My Ads' under 'My LoopNet'. Pricing for each campaign will be determined by the number of available impressions (or views) advertiser desires for a given set of campaign targeting options, including property type, search type (for sale/for lease), and location (zip code). The number of impressions is calculated on the purchase date and remains guaranteed (up to the impression cap provided at campaign purchase) throughout commitment term. Client acknowledges that the average views per month on LoopNet.com varies, therefore the number of views for a campaign will vary month to month. Campaigns are sold on a quarterly or annual commitment, billed to a credit card on a monthly billing frequency. Monthly invoicing is available when a minimum campaign value is met. All campaigns auto-renew for additional terms, equal to initial term, if price remains within ten percent (10%) of original campaign purchase price. If at renewal, market demand has increased the campaign price more than ten percent (10%), client will be notified via email that the campaign has expired and client will need to authorize campaign continuation at current market price. At any time, client may request to cancel the campaign by calling LoopNet Advertising Sales at (888) 207-9234. Cancellation requests must be submitted three (3) days prior to the last day of the current campaign to effectively cancel the campaign at the end of term and avoid renewal. All cancellations are effective at end of the initial or renewal term and monthly billing will continue for the full commitment. There are no refunds or early terminations. There are five status phases to an advertising campaign:
- Draft Phase - The campaign is reserved but the creative is not live. Billing commences at this time and continues until the campaign is canceled at the end of any campaign term.
- Active Phase - Ad is published by Client
- Paused Phase - Advertisement is paused by Client after Client contacts a LoopNet Advertising Representative. Monthly billing continues for full commitment period, with no refund or additional impressions due, for reserved inventory that in the Paused Phase.
- Suspended Phase - Client suspends advertisement so it is not live on LoopNet, but billing for full commitment period will continue with no refund due.
- Expired Phase - Campaign is complete and client has validly submitted a cancellation request to be effective at the end of the initial or any renewal term. At this time, the advertisement is not active, and monthly billing has stopped.
An advertisement creative can be updated online or by calling LoopNet Advertisement Representative, and may take up to 24 hours to appear on LoopNet.com. Any update or change to the ad once campaign has begun will require a new advertisement campaign for such updated ad. All previous campaigns will continue until valid cancellation notice is submitted and the campaign ends at the end of the term.
Property Comps Subscriptions
Property Comps subscription privileges are granted by LoopNet to individuals exclusively and are granted specifically to the subscribing individual only.

Property Comps subscription privileges are subject to change from time to time and are subject to record retrieval limitations of no more than 100 sales comps detailed information records downloaded and/or viewed per month and no more than 500 records saved (the "Monthly Cap"). On the attempt to view the 101st sales comp detailed information record in a given month, LoopNet will inform such subscriber with an online informational message indicating: (i) that such subscriber has reached the Monthly Cap; (ii) that LoopNet may, at its sole discretion, grant such subscriber an additional twenty-five (25) Sales Comp detailed information records free of charge for that month; and (iii) should such subscriber exceed the 125 sales comps detailed information record threshold for that month, such subscriber will be assessed the per-record price as indicated in the online information message beginning with the retrieval of the 126th sales comp detailed information record in that month.

LoopNet Tenant Data Indemnification, Limitation on Liability, and Third Party Beneficiaries
Selection and Use Indemnification
Customer assumes the sole responsibility for the selection of the LoopNet tenant data to achieve Customer's intended results, the use of the LoopNet tenant data, and the results attained from such selection and use. Customer shall defend LoopNet, Dun & Bradstreet, and affiliates, and the directors, officers, employees, independent contractors, and agents of LoopNet, Dun and Bradstreet and their affiliates ("Indemnitees"), at Customer's sole cost and expense, against any and all demands, claims, actions, suits, or other proceedings ("Claims") against Indemnitees arising from or related to Customer's selection or use of LoopNet tenant data whether or not such use is in accordance with this Agreement and shall indemnify and hold Indemnitees harmless from any and all judgments, losses, liabilities, damages, costs, and expenses (including without limitation, reasonable attorney's fees and attorney's disbursements) arising out of or incurred in connection with such Claims. Customer's liability under this Selection and Use Indemnification shall be reduced to the extent that Customer is actually prejudiced by LoopNet or Dun & Bradstreet's failure to give notice of a Claim to Customer promptly after LoopNet learns of such Claim. Customer shall have the right to control the defense and settlement of any Claims for which Customer is obligated to defend, but LoopNet and Dun & Bradstreet shall each have the right to participate in such Claims at their own cost and expense.
Limitation of Liability
LoopNet and Dun & Bradstreet's total liability of LoopNet tenant data under this Agreement shall under no circumstances exceed the amount paid by Customer, if any, for accessing the LoopNet tenant data in the calendar year in which the related claim accrued. Under no circumstances shall LoopNet nor Dun & Bradstreet be liable to Customer or any other person for lost revenues, lost profits, loss of business, or any indirect, incidental, special, punitive, or consequential damages of any nature, regardless of legal theory and whether or not foreseeable, even if the exclusive remedies provided by this Agreement fail of their essential purpose and even if LoopNet, Dun & Bradstreet or Customer has been advised of the possibility or probability of such damages. The remedies specifically provided by this Agreement and the provisions of this Limitation of Liability for LoopNet tenant data set forth Customer's exclusive remedies and allocate between LoopNet and Customer the risks under this Agreement, some of which may be unknown or undeterminable. Such limitations were a material inducement for LoopNet to enter into this Agreement, and LoopNet and Customer have relied upon such limitations in determining whether to enter into this Agreement. In addition, Dun & Bradstreet shall have no liability under this Agreement or otherwise related to LoopNet Products or Services, including, without limitation, LoopNet tenant data and LoopNet's website.
Third Party Beneficiaries
Dun & Bradstreet is an intended third party beneficiary under the immediately preceding Indemnification and Limitation on Liability Sections of this Agreement and is entitled to all rights and benefits under and may enforce and obtain all remedies under law or in equity for breaches of these Sections. Except for Dun & Bradstreet, Customer and LoopNet agree that this Agreement is not intended to confer and does not confer any rights or remedies upon any person other than the parties to this Agreement.
