TERMS OF SERVICE, MEMBERSHIP AGREEMENT, LEGAL DISCLAIMER, PRIVACY POLICY

1. This Agreement between The LPA (The Landlord Protection Agency, Inc.) and you (the "Applicant") contains the following terms and conditions:

By placing my order for Membership in The Landlord Protection Agency, I, the Applicant agree with the LPA's Terms of Service and Membership Agreement.
In exchange, The LPA will grant me LICENSE and FULL ACCESS to confidential materials, tools and Unlimited downloads and use of copyrighted LPA Forms for the full length of my membership term.

By applying for membership in The Landlord Protection Agency or ordering products, the Applicant agrees to be bound by this Agreement and the Terms and Conditions herein.

The Applicant agrees to comply with The LPA's code of ethics as best as possible.

2. Immediate & Secure Access to products and member services: The Applicant will have immediate online access to The Landlord Protection Agency, Inc. products and downloads as soon as the order has been submitted and paid by credit card.

3. No Refund Policy: The low cost of membership in The LPA instantly provides the Applicant with a tremendous value of products, tools and discounts. Membership materials, form downloads and access to confidential databases are immediately accessible at the time of approving this agreement with your electronic signature and completing the order. LPA membership materials and products are Copyrighted Intellectual Property. Since immediate access to all products and features is delivered via the internet at the time the order is completed, all fees paid to The Landlord Protection Agency (The LPA) are non-refundable, except in the case of duplicate orders. Duplicate form orders or duplicate membership orders from the same applicant will be promptly voided or credited to the applicant. A duplicate order is when the same product is ordered and paid for more than once within the same 60 days.
3a. When a membership is for more than 1 year, the applicant will receive The LPA CD of Essential Forms ($249.99 if purchased separately) in addition to immediate and unlimited downloads and access to other LPA members only benefits. Multiple year memberships are heavily discounted. For example: A request to convert a multiple year membership to a 1 year membership price + the retail cost of the CD, calculates to a higher price than the multiple year membership.

Lifetime Membership The LPA will honor the Lifetime membership for the life of the member. Includes access to new member features added in the future to the website. The FREE BONUS materials on the site will be sent to the member's address as ordered. As stated above, LPA memberships and downloaded materials are non-refundable. There are no refunds for Free Bonuses.

4. Coupon Codes and Special Promotions On occasion, The Landlord Protection Agency issues coupon codes for special promotions and discounts in association with certain holidays or events. Improper use of coupon codes: The Landlord Protection Agency reserves the right to correct the charges of any order to correspond with the proper price and product ordered. For example, using an inapplicable coupon code made specifically for a 5 year membership on a different product, such as a 1 year membership will cause the order to be manually corrected to the listed price or if another coupon code is available for that product. The LPA, in good faith will apply the applicable code, if any in the member's best interest.
In the event membership coupon codes are used for theft purposes on our other products not included in specific coupon code offers, we reserve the right to correct the charges and to charge an administrative correction fee to the order in an amount up to $20.00.

5. Credit Report Affiliates: The Landlord Protection Agency provides access links to credit bureau websites that represent authorized resellers of credit reports from the major credit bureaus.

"ClearScreening" is the LPA's affiliate link to ClearScreening credit services. Some of these sites also report to the credit bureaus as well. Our credit reporting affiliates are separate companies from The LPA and require a separate membership for credit reporting not to be confused with the services or membership of The Landlord Protection Agency. In most cases, there is no fee to sign up with our credit report affiliates.

Security and Private Information Policy

The Landlord Protection Agency has created a state-of-the-art, real-time transaction system, that uses industry standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption, as well as private links to international banking networks, to ensure your information is quickly and securely authorized and processed.

Your credit card information is protected in two ways. First of all, as a result of the SSL-based encryption, your card number is ALWAYS secure during transmission. A visual means of confirming this is for you to watch the small padlock icon in your browser. While on any page where financial information is to be entered, this icon will change to a locked state, denoting a secure page. This security measure is privately audited by an independent third-party, Thawte, whose icon you can click on from any secured page to confirm its secure status. This site is secured with a Thawte Digital Certificate. A Thawte icon is at the bottom of the LPA homepage and at the bottom of the Essential Forms and Membership ordering page. When in secure mode, anyone trying to eavesdrop on communications between your computer and our server will only see encrypted (scrambled) data. Secure mode is always activated whenever personal information is being exchanged.

Secondly, our private links to banking networks ensure that your sensitive information is ALWAYS secure once we have received it. All the information traveling on our banking network is guaranteed 100% secure.

The Landlord Protection Agency actively works with international banking institutions and law enforcement to discover and prosecute cases of fraudulent credit card use. All connections to, and transactions within The Landlord Protection Agency are logged and regularly audited. WE USE ALL MEANS AVAILABLE TO US TO PURSUE CRIMINAL PROSECUTION AGAINST PERSONS ATTEMPTING FRAUD OR UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OUR SYSTEMS, IN ALL ICPO/INTERPOL JURISDICTIONS.
