terms & conditions
Agreement between User and Stesso
Welcome to Stesso Real Estate Network. The stessoapp.com website (the "Site") and Stesso mobile application (“STESSO app” or the “Mobile Application”) is comprised of various web pages operated by Stesso LLC ("Stesso"). Stessoapp.com and Stesso mobile application is offered to you conditioned on your acceptance without modification of the terms, conditions, and notices contained herein (the "Terms"). Your use of stessoapp.com and/or the Stesso application constitutes your agreement to all such Terms. Please read these terms carefully, and keep a copy of them for your reference.
Stesso is a mobile application that connects luxury real estate agents around the world.
By downloading or using the app, these terms will automatically apply to you – you should make sure that you read them carefully before using the app. You are NOT allowed to copy, or modify the app, any part of the app, or our trademarks in any way. You are NOT allowed to attempt to extract the source code of the app, and you also should not try to translate the app into other languages, or make derivative versions. The app itself, and all the trade marks, copyright, database rights and other intellectual property rights related to it, still belong to Stesso LLC.
Stesso LLC is committed to ensuring that the app is as useful and efficient as possible. For that reason, we reserve the right to make changes to the app or to charge for its services, at any time and for any reason. We will never charge you for the app or its services without making it very clear to you exactly what you’re paying for.
Privacy and Security
The STESSO app stores and processes personal data that you have provided to us, in order to provide our Service. It’s your responsibility to keep your phone and access to the app secure and maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password. You agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password. We therefore recommend that you do not jailbreak or root your phone, which is the process of removing software restrictions and limitations imposed by the official operating system of your device. It could make your phone vulnerable to malware/viruses/malicious programs, compromise your phone’s security features and it could mean that the STESSO app won’t work properly or at all.
You may not assign or otherwise transfer your account to any other person or entity. You acknowledge that Stesso is not responsible for third party access to your account that results from theft or misappropriation of your account. Stesso and its associates reserve the right to refuse or cancel service, terminate accounts, or remove or edit content in our sole discretion.
Visiting stessoapp.com, the STESSO app or sending emails to Stesso constitutes electronic communications. You consent to receive electronic communications and you agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically, via email and on the Site/app, satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
At some point, we may wish to update the app. The app is currently available on Android & iOS – the requirements for both systems (and for any additional systems we decide to extend the availability of the app to) may change, and you’ll need to download the updates if you want to keep using the app. Stesso LLC does not promise that it will always update the app so that it is relevant to you and/or works with the Android & iOS version that you have installed on your device. However, you promise to always accept updates to the application when offered to you, We may also wish to stop providing the app, and may terminate use of it at any time without giving notice of termination to you. Unless we tell you otherwise, upon any termination, (a) the rights and licenses granted to you in these terms will end; (b) you must stop using the app, and (if needed) delete it from your device.
Using our Mobile App
You should be aware that there are certain things that Stesso LLC will not take responsibility for. Certain functions of the app will require the app to have an active internet connection. The connection can be Wi-Fi, or provided by your mobile network provider, but Stesso LLC cannot take responsibility for the app not working at full functionality if you don’t have access to Wi-Fi, and you don’t have any of your data allowance left.
If you’re using the app outside of an area with Wi-Fi, you should remember that your terms of the agreement with your mobile network provider will still apply. As a result, you may be charged by your mobile provider for the cost of data for the duration of the connection while accessing the app, or other third party charges. In using the app, you’re accepting responsibility for any such charges, including roaming data charges if you use the app outside of your home territory (i.e. region or country) without turning off data roaming. If you are not the bill payer for the device on which you’re using the app, please be aware that we assume that you have received permission from the bill payer for using the app.
Along the same lines, Stesso LLC cannot always take responsibility for the way you use the app. Example: You need to make sure that your device stays charged – if it runs out of battery and you can’t turn it on to avail the Service, Stesso LLC cannot accept responsibility.
Third Party Sites/Third Party Services
The app does use third party services that declare their own Terms and Conditions.
Link to Terms and Conditions of third party service providers used by the app
By using any product, service or functionality originating from the STESSO app, you hereby acknowledge and consent that Stesso may share such information and data with any third party with whom Stesso has a contractual relationship to provide the requested product, service or functionality on behalf of Stesso users and customers.
With respect to Stesso LLC’s responsibility for your use of the app, when you’re using the app, it’s important to bear in mind that although we endeavor to ensure that it is updated and correct at all times, we do rely on third parties to provide information to us so that we can make it available to you. Stesso LLC accepts no liability for any loss, direct or indirect, you experience as a result of relying wholly on this functionality of the app.
Third Party Social Media Accounts
You will be able to connect your Stesso account to third party accounts. By connecting your Stesso account to your third party account, you acknowledge and agree that you are consenting to the continuous release of information about you to others (in accordance with your privacy settings on those third party sites). If you do not want information about you to be shared in this manner, do not use this feature.
