5. Equal Opportunity in Housing Statement
All real estate advertised herein is subject to the federal Fair Housing Act, which makes it illegal to advertise “any preference, limitation, or discrimination because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin, or intention to make such preference, limitation or discrimination.”
We will not knowingly accept or permit any advertisement for real estate that is in violation of the law. All persons are hereby informed that all dwellings advertised are available on an equal opportunity basis.
When it comes to buying, selling or leasing a home or renting an apartment, several state and federal laws were enacted to ensure the equal opportunity in housing for all people. The Civil Rights Act of 1966 prohibits all racial discrimination in the sale or rental of property. Moreover, the Fair Housing Act declares a national policy of fair housing throughout the United States, making illegal any discrimination in the sale, lease or rental of housing, or making housing otherwise unavailable, because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin.
Other laws also impact the purchase, sale or lease of a home or renting an apartment. Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits discrimination against persons with disabilities in places of public accommodations and commercial facilities. The Equal Credit Opportunity Act makes discrimination unlawful with respect to any aspect of a credit application on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, marital status, age or because all or part of the applicant’s income derives from any public assistance program.
In addition, state and local laws often provide broader coverage and prohibit discrimination based on additional classes not covered by federal law.
Despite our zero tolerance policy, much of the information regarding real estate and related matters on our Sites or Services is provided by third parties or via hyperlink to third party sites. As such, there may be an instance of potential discrimination by these third parties that we are not yet aware of. If you suspect discrimination by one of these sites, please contact our staff at email@example.com.
Complaints alleging discrimination in housing may be filed with the nearest office of the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), or by calling HUD’s toll free number, 1-800-669-9777 (voice), or 1-800-543-8294 (TDD).

* A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
* Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site;
* Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material. This should include specific URLs to the work(s) and track titles of the work(s) as displayed at those URLs in the body of an email.
* Information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted;
* A statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and

After we receive your copyright infringement notification, we will expeditiously take down the work(s).
If applicable, we will attempt to notify the alleged infringer of the copyright infringement notification and point them to the procedure for counter-notification. We will not share your personal information with the alleged infringer. If we receive a relevant counter-notification from the alleged infringer, we will forward it to you. You will have ten (10) days to notify us that you have filed an action seeking a court order to restrain the alleged infringer from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on AptAmigo’s Website or Services. If we receive such a notification, we will not restore the material. If we do not receive such notification, we may reinstate the material.
Please also note that under Section 512(f) of the Copyright Act, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be subject to liability. Information provided in this legal notice may be forwarded to the person who provided the allegedly infringing content.
14. Jurisdiction and Enforceability
These Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Illinois and the United States of America, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law. You irrevocably consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located in the State of Illinois in connection with any action arising out of or related to these Terms or their subject matter. You waive any objection based on lack of personal jurisdiction, place of residence, improper venue or forum non conveniens in any such action.
15. Force Majeure
We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under these Terms that is caused by a Force Majeure Event. A “Force Majeure Event” means any act or event beyond our reasonable control, including strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action by third parties, civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or preparation for war, fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic or other natural disaster, or failure of public or private telecommunications networks or impossibility of the use of railways, shipping, aircraft, motor transport or other means of public or private transport. If a Force Majeure Event takes place that affects the performance of our obligations under these terms we will contact you as soon as reasonably possible to notify you. Our obligations under these terms will be suspended and the time for performance of our obligations will be extended for the duration of a Force Majeure Event. Where the a Force Majeure Event affects our delivery of products to you, we will arrange a new delivery date with you after the Force Majeure Event is over.
16. Waiver of Class Action Rights
IN ANY DISPUTE, NEITHER YOU NOR ANY OTHER PERSON SHALL BE ENTITLED TO JOIN OR CONSOLIDATE CLAIMS BY OR AGAINST OTHER AFFILIATES OR PERSONS, OR ARBITRATE ANY CLAIM AS A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS ACTION OR IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR RIGHTS TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION WITH RESPECT TO ANY SUCH CLAIM.
You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold AptAmigo, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, any related companies, suppliers, licensors and partners, and the officers, directors, employees, agents and representatives of each (collectively, the “AptAmigo Parties”) harmless, including costs, liabilities and legal fees, from any claim or demand made by any third party arising out of or relating to (i) your access to or use of our Sites or Services, (ii) your violation of the Terms, and (iii) the infringement by you, or any third party using your account, of any intellectual property or other right of any person or entity. AptAmigo reserves the right, at your expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter for which you are required to indemnify us and you agree to cooperate with our defense of these claims. You agree not to settle any such matter without the prior written consent of AptAmigo. AptAmigo will use reasonable efforts to notify you of any such claim, action or proceeding upon becoming aware of it.
18. Other Important Terms
These Terms and any document expressly referred to in these Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us and supersede and extinguish all previous agreements, promises, assurances, warranties, representations and understandings between us, whether written or oral, relating to its subject matter.
We may revise these Terms from time to time in our sole discretion. Every time you use our Sites or Services, the Terms in effect at that time will apply to such use. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these Terms to another organization, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under these Terms.
We reserve the right at any time in our sole discretion to: modify, suspend or discontinue our Sites or Services or any service, content, feature or product offered through our Sites or Services, with or without notice; charge fees in connection with the use of our sites; modify and/or waive any fees charged in connection with our Sites or Services; and/or offer opportunities to some or all users of our Sites or Services. You agree that we shall not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of our Sites or Services, or any service, content, feature or product offered through our Sites or Services.
Each of the paragraphs of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
We may terminate these Terms at any time without notice, and accordingly may deny you access to our sites, if in our sole judgment you fail to comply with any term or provision of these Terms. The obligations and liabilities of the parties incurred prior to the termination date shall survive the termination of these Terms for all purposes.
