You agree that OwnAmerica may use and maintain your data according to the OwnAmerica's Privacy Policy, as part of the Services. You give OwnAmerica permission to combine information you enter or upload for the Services with that of other users of the Services and/or other OwnAmerica services.

3. Description of the Services

The OwnAmerica Service is a single family housing rental information management service that allows you to consolidate and track your single family rental housing portfolio information. The OwnAmerica Service is provided to you by OwnAmerica without charge (it is free) and is meant to provide you with your information to allow you to organize and manage your single family rental housing portfolio. The OwnAmerica Service is also a marketplace to buy and sell individual or portfolios of single family rental properties. There are separate fees and agreements associated with the use of the OwnAmerica Marketplace. Member must sign a separate agreement to buy or sell properties on the Marketplace.

Services will also include projected performance information based upon the basic information you have provided about your properties. These are not actual results. The data is based upon the potential performance of representative properties.

The data presented is subject to significant assumptions. While OwnAmerica believes the assumptions used to generate this data are reasonable, these assumptions are subjective in nature and other assumptions may also be reasonable. Further you have the ability to alter the assumptions to see the various potential outcomes. Different assumptions may result in materially different returns. The projections set forth in these materials are provided to you on the understanding that you will understand and accept the inherent limitations of such results and will not rely on them in making any decision to invest in a property. No representation is being made that a performance record similar to the projected returns will or is likely to be achieved.

The projected returns are being shown on a net basis, net of estimated expenses for Property Taxes, Insurance, HOA, Property management and Asset management fees, rehabilitation cost, closing costs and estimated provisions for vacancy and repairs and maintenance.

The Services may also include Comps, or properties that have similar characteristics to your properties or the properties that you may be looking at in the Marketplace. OwnAmerica uses certain information relating to Comps in arriving at projected financial returns for certain properties. The Comps are chosen based on numerous attributes of the comparing property. Some of these attributes (but not limited to) include location, last sale price, last sale date, square footage, year built, type of sale (standard, foreclosure, short sale, etc.).

The Services may also present to you information relating to third party products or services ("OwnAmerica Offers') that you may be interested in. Members are free to use any or all or none of such services.

The Services may also provide to you general tips, recommendations and educational material.

Any information, variables and calculation results shown regarding individual properties and/or the real estate market (whether in a large or particularized area) are for illustrative purposes only and should not be relied on as your sole or primary means for making real estate investment decisions. OwnAmerica and our affiliates have not verified the information and make no guarantee, warranty or representation about it. Though care has been taken to ensure that the information comes from reliable and verified sources, investors are advised to perform their own checks and due diligence. OwnAmerica shall not be held responsible for any information appearing on the website.

OwnAmerica is not a lender and the exact terms of any loan used to finance real estate will be decided between the lender and the investment property account holder. Any loan-related information provided is for informational purposes only. Actual loan terms and conditions may vary based upon properties, down payments and a number of other factors. Any information shown related to financing is subject to credit and other approvals.
