The Website and Service are controlled and operated by Pine Management from the state of New York in the United States and are not intended to subject Pine Management or its affiliates to the laws or jurisdiction of any state, country or territory other than that of New York. Pine Management does not represent or warrant that the Website or Service or any part thereof are appropriate or available for use in any jurisdiction other than the United States.

 

Third Party Services

 

The Website contains links to a number of services provided by third parties (“Third Party Services”). Third Party Services include, but are not limited to, services which allow Users to submit a rental payment or maintenance repair request, view the status of repairs, update their contact information and notification preferences, receive notifications of building maintenance and issues, obtain contact information for building resources, or submit an application.

Payments; Transaction Acceptance

 

By your use of the Website and Service, you may have authorized us to debit your bank account to make certain payments on your behalf. Payments of this type are generally made through an automated clearing house (“ACH”) system. The starting point for an ACH transaction is a receiver authorizing an originator to issue an ACH transaction (debit or credit) to the receiver’s account, which is then routed over the ACH system until payment is made by depositing the funds withdrawn into the receiver’s account. You may also choose to make payments using payment cards, such as credit and debit cards, on this Website or through Third Party Websites we link to. We use third parties to process these transactions on our behalf and we shall not be liable, in any manner, for the actions or omissions of such parties. Nothing in these Terms shall require (or be deemed to require) that we process or accept electronic or ACH payments on your behalf. By using these Third Party Services, you agree to be bound by the terms of use, terms of service, and privacy policies of these third parties.

 

Transaction Acceptance

 

Your receipt of an electronic or other form of transaction confirmation does not signify our acceptance of your transaction nor does it constitute confirmation of our offer to provide services. We reserve the right, at any time, to accept or decline your electronic request for any or no reason, even after the payment has been processed online by a third party. Furthermore, we may need to verify any information you provide to us before we accept or process any transaction.

 

You are solely responsible for any charges or taxes incurred in connection with transactions you initiate on the Website and Services and agree to pay of any such charges.
