Privacy Statement and Terms of Use for Yardi Mobile Apps

Privacy Statement and Terms of Use for Yardi Mobile Apps (Last updated October 14, 2014)

Since 1982, Yardi Systems, Inc. and its affiliates (“Yardi”) has been dedicated to the design, development, and support of real estate investment management and property management software. Yardi offers full business solutions for every real estate market. The Yardi Mobile App (“Yardi Mobile App” or “App”) made subject to this Privacy Statement and Terms of Use (together, the “Privacy Statement” or “Terms”) is just one component part of Yardi’s innovative real estate technology platform.

At Yardi, we work hard to respect an individual’s privacy and to ensure the security of the information collected, transmitted or hosted by, or on, our technology.  As part of that effort, before we can let you use the Yardi Mobile App, we need your consent to Yardi’s collection, use and sharing of information as described in this Privacy Statement for Yardi Mobile Apps, and, we need you to verify that you, as an individual, are an Authorized Licensee of Yardi Technology.

Importantly, this Privacy Statement does not describe the privacy practices of Yardi’s clients. As further described below and as used in these Terms, an Authorized Licensee means both the Yardi client that is a party to an Authorized License Agreement and the individual (yes, hopefully, you) authorized, or designated, by that Authorized Licensee to Use Yardi Technology pursuant to an Authorized License Agreement. In other words, you are likely to be the employee of an Authorized Licensee (one of Yardi’s clients) and this Privacy Statement does not describe how your employer, or applicable Authorized Licensee, may use or share information, including, but not limited to, any information you enter into the Yardi Mobile App or any information about your device.  To learn more about how your employer (or, again, other applicable Authorized Licensee) may use the information entered into or otherwise associated with your use of this App, please ask your employer (or other applicable Authorized Licensee) – and not Yardi.

YARDI MOBILE APPS ARE FOR AUTHORIZED LICENSEES ONLY
Please read this privacy statement and Terms of use for yardi mobile apps carefully before accessing, downloading or using this Yardi Mobile App. Yardi Mobile Apps are made available for download and Use solely by our Authorized Licensees. By downloading or Using this Yardi Mobile App, you: (1) represent and warrant that you are an Authorized Licensee of all Yardi Technology that you access and Use through the Yardi Mobile App, and (2) agree to be bound, without limitation or qualification, by these Terms and expressly acknowledge and consent to Yardi’s collection, use and sharing of information as described in this Privacy Statement. If you are not an Authorized Licensee, or if you are an Authorized Licensee but you do not consent to or agree to be bound without limitation or qualification by these Terms, you are not authorized to access, download or use this Yardi Mobile App.

As used in these Terms, (i) “Authorized Licensee” shall mean a licensee of Yardi Technology (defined below) pursuant to a written agreement, either as a client (referred to as a “Client Authorized Licensee”) or as a member consultant of the Yardi Independent Consultant Network (referred to as a “Consultant Authorized Licensee”); (ii) “Authorized License Agreement” shall mean the written license agreement between Yardi and an Authorized Licensee related to Yardi Technology; (iii) “Business Purposes” means: (A) a Client Authorized Licensee’s management, or Fee Management (defined below), of Client Authorized Licensee’s real property portfolio for accounting, property management and related business purposes only of that Client Authorized Licensee; or (B) a Consultant Authorized Licensee’s implementation and training services solely in support of a Client Authorized Licensee’s Use of Yardi Technology; (iv) “Fee Management” means management of a real property portfolio pursuant to a contract between the real property owner, or owners, and a Client Authorized Licensee; (v) “Yardi Technology” shall mean Yardi technology, including, but not limited to, software (including this App) and related updates, online websites and services, user manuals, documentation, products, and content and other material made available to an Authorized Licensee pursuant to an Authorized License Agreement; and (vi) “Use” shall mean authorized use of a Yardi Mobile App by an Authorized Licensee to access to and use only that corresponding Yardi Technology intended to interoperate with such App and to which the Authorized Licensee is licensed through its Authorized License Agreement, and solely for the Authorized Licensee’s Business Purposes. In addition, as used throughout these Terms, “you” or “user” shall mean an Authorized Licensee of a Yardi Mobile App.

COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE
Users of Yardi Mobile Apps will be entering all of the same information into the Yardi Mobile App that the user would enter into the corresponding component of Yardi Technology were they accessing and using the corresponding Yardi Technology from their office computer. Yardi’s confidentiality and other obligations – its limited rights to use and share such information with third parties – are governed by the terms and conditions of the Authorized Licensee Agreement.

As with your use of Yardi Technology from an office computer, in order to Use this Yardi Mobile App, you will have to enter your login credential and password associated with your designated, or authorized, Use of Yardi Technology as an Authorized Licensee (together, “Credential”). Your Credential is considered Confidential Information pursuant to your Authorized License Agreement with Yardi, and shall be used solely for the Authorized Licensee’s Business Purposes. You agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current, and complete information as prompted by the credential form; and (b) maintain and update such information to keep it true, accurate, current, and complete at all times.

PASSWORDS AND SECURITY
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Credential and agree not to disclose or share your Credential with any third parties, or use your Credential and this Yardi Mobile App for any improper purpose. You agree to (i) immediately notify Yardi and/or your employer (or other applicable Authorized Licensee) of any unauthorized use of your Credential, or any other breach of security, and (ii) ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each Yardi Mobile App session. You are liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this section.

COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DEVICE
Yardi Mobile Apps do collect limited information about your device, such as the device model and operating system version number.  Yardi Mobile Apps utilize this limited information solely to allow the optimal performance of the Yardi Mobile App.  For example, a Yardi Mobile App downloaded to an iPad may display more information from the database associated with Yardi Voyager than the same Yardi Mobile App running on an iPhone – simply because it is possible to display more information on an iPad than an iPhone and we want to deliver to our clients the best performance, power and convenience possible.  This information is also used for troubleshooting assistance.

Some Yardi Mobile Apps, such as the Maintenance Mobile App and the Maintenance Manager App, include device location tracking features.  Yardi uses the device location information solely to provide the inherent functionality of that feature – in other words, to help the technician and map out the most optimal route for the technician, to display the user’s current location on the map, to record where photos are taken within the app, and to record the device’s location when synchronizing data with our servers.

As we noted at the beginning of this Privacy Statement, to learn more about how your employer (or, again, other applicable Authorized Licensee) may use the information entered into or otherwise associated with your use of this App, please ask your employer (or other applicable Authorized Licensee) – and not Yardi.  If you do have questions regarding our this Privacy Statement or Yardi’s limited use of information collected via the Yardi Mobile App, you can contact Yardi Systems, Inc. at:
