Your use of the Sites constitutes your knowledge, understanding, and acceptance of the Terms, and your agreement to be bound by the Terms. Sevona may change, edit, modify, delete, revise, or update the Terms from time to time, or at any time, without notice, and your use of the Sites after any changes, edits, modifications, deletions, revisions, or updates are posted to the Sites constitutes your agreement to comply with the newly posted Terms.
In addition to these Terms, Sevona may require additional terms and conditions (“Additional Terms”) that apply to certain services or features we offer on or via the Sites (such as payment services, service or maintenance requests, social media services, blogs, etc.), and you acknowledge that you will be subject to such Additional Terms when you access these services or features. To the extent there is a conflict between these Terms and any Additional Terms, the Additional Terms will control, unless the Additional Terms expressly state that these Terms will control.
When you visit the Sites or send emails to us, you are communicating with us electronically. You consent to receive communications from us and our third-party service providers electronically. We may communicate with you by email or by posting notices on the Sites. The Sites may provide you with the option to electronically enter into certain transactions related to your proposed or actual rental of an apartment, including, without limitation, an application to lease an apartment, certain consents related thereto, a lease agreement for an apartment for which you have been approved to rent, a renewal of an existing lease agreement, and/or payments related to your application for or lease of an apartment. Your use of the Sites to enter into such transactions with us is entirely voluntary. However, if you enter into any such transaction via the Sites, you consent to doing such transaction in electronic form, and to providing an electronic signature in the form specified on the Sites, rather than a handwritten signature, whenever a signature is required in connection with a transaction on the Sites. In addition, you understand and acknowledge that all transactions that you enter into via the Sites will be legally binding on you just as if they were done on paper, and that your electronic signature in the form specified on the Sites will be binding as though you had physically signed such document on paper by hand.
As a convenience to its residents, Sevona provides on the Sites an online payment function. All payments of rent or other amounts due under a lease must be paid when due, by online payment or at the management office of the community in which a resident lives. All payments are final, and no refunds shall be granted in accordance with the terms of each resident’s lease (subject, however, to the terms of each lease).
When you register with the Sites, you will be asked to create an account and provide Sevona with true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself (your “Information”) and, where required, to maintain and update it promptly. Only existing residents of Sevona will be permitted to register for an account. Sevona reserves the right to offer third party services and products to you based on the preferences that you identify in your registration and at any time thereafter; such offers may be made by Sevona or by third parties.
Your use of certain portions of the Sites requires a User ID and password. Anyone with knowledge of your User ID and password can gain access to the restricted portions of the Sites and the information available to you. Accordingly, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your User ID and password, and for restricting access to your computer, or other device you use to connect to the Sites, so that others may not access the Sites using your User ID and password. By agreeing to these Terms, you agree to be solely responsible for the confidentiality and use of your respective User ID and password, as well as for any communications entered through the Sites using your User ID and password. You agree to immediately notify Sevona if you become aware of any loss or theft of your User ID and password or any unauthorized use of your User ID and password, and further agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your User ID and password until such time as you notify us that your User ID and password have been compromised or otherwise request that we suspend or cancel your account. Sevona shall not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your negligence or failure to comply with any of the foregoing obligations. Sevona reserves the right to delete or change a User ID and/or password at any time and for any reason.
For your protection, Sevona reserves the right, but is not obligated to view, monitor, and record activity on the Sites without notice or permission from you. Any information obtained by monitoring, reviewing, or recording is subject to review by law enforcement organizations in connection with the investigation or prosecution of possible criminal activity on the Sites. Sevona will also comply with all court orders involving requests for such information.
We comply with all federal and state laws that regulate fair housing. The Civil Rights Act of 1866 prohibits all racial discrimination in the sale or rental of property. 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. 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. State and local laws often provide broader coverage and prohibit discrimination based on additional classes not covered by federal law.
We support Equal Housing Opportunity and encourage users of our Sites to follow appropriate guidelines to comply with the Federal Housing Act, as well as any applicable state and local regulations. All renters are hereby informed that all property rental offers are available on an equal opportunity basis. We have a responsibility and a requirement under the law not to discriminate in the rental of property on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin. Moreover, we will not establish discriminatory terms or conditions in the purchase or rental, deny that housing is available, or advertise that the property is available only to persons of a certain race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin.
As someone seeking to rent an apartment, home or condo, you have the right to expect that housing will be available to you without discrimination or other limitations based on race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin. This includes the right to expect equal professional service, the opportunity to consider a broad range of housing choices, no discriminatory limitations on communities or locations of housing, no discrimination in the pricing or financing of housing, reasonable accommodations in rules, practices and procedures for persons with disabilities, and to be free from harassment or intimidation for exercising your fair housing rights.

Pursuant to our rights under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”), 17 U.S.C. § 512, we have designated a copyright agent to receive copyright infringement notices for claims of infringement related to materials found on the Sites. Our copyright agent is Sevona’s General Counsel. The agent can be reached by phone at 714-786-5000, by e-mail at email@example.com or by U.S. Mail at 7715 Crittenden Street, #358, Philadelphia, PA 19118.
To be effective, your infringement notification must include the following:
1. A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
2. 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.
3. Identification of the material or content that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or have access disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material;
4. Information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact the complaining party, including address, telephone number and email address where the complaining party may be contacted;
5. The following statement: “I have 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
6. The following statement: “The information in this notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, I swear that I am the copyright owner or that I am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.”
Upon receipt of the written notification containing the information as outlined in 1 through 6 above:
1. Sevona will remove or disable access to the content that is alleged to be infringing;
2. Sevona will forward the written notification to the alleged infringer; and
3. Sevona will take reasonable steps to promptly notify the alleged infringer that we have removed or disabled access to the content.
Pursuant to the DMCA, after the alleged infringer receives a notice of infringement from Sevona, the alleged infringer will have the opportunity to respond to Sevona with a counter notification (“Counter Notification”). To be effective, a Counter Notification must be a written communication provided to Sevona’s designated copyright agent, and must include the following:
1. A physical or electronic signature of the subscriber;
2. Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access disabled;
3. The following statement: “I swear under penalty of perjury that it is my good faith belief that the material identified above was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled”; and
4. The subscriber’s name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that the subscriber consents to the jurisdiction of the federal district court for the judicial district in which the subscriber address is located, or if the subscriber’s address is outside of the United States, or any judicial district in which Sevona may be found, and that the subscriber will accept service of process from the person who provided notification or an agent of such person.
Upon the copyright agent’s receipt of a Counter Notification containing the information as outlined in 1 through 4 above, the DMCA provides that the removed material will be restored or access re-enabled and we will comply with this requirement as required by law, provided that the designated agent has not received notice from the original complaining party that an action has been filed seeking a court order to restrain the subscriber from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on our network.
