Listing Policy

This policy was last updated on July 22, 2012.

Please familiarize yourself with BuzzTarget's Listing Policies (the "Listing Policies") prior to entering a property listing on the BuzzTarget website. All listings are subject to the Listing Policies.
1. Required Fields
All fields noted by an asterisk (*) on the add property page are required fields and must be completed with valid data pertaining to the property being listed ("Required Fields"). Property listings where data is missing or data entered in the Required Fields is deemed illogical will be removed from the site until valid content is entered in the Required Fields.
  1. Address Fields
    All Address fields on BuzzTarget including Address, City, State and Zip Code are Required Fields. These fields are intended for listing the physical address or intersection of the property being listed. These fields are not for the listing of additional information about the property. Entering "Confidential", "Call Broker", "Withheld", or any other verbiage designed to withhold, hide, and/or conceal the physical address in the Address or City Name fields is strictly prohibited. BuzzTarget reserves the right to remove any and all property listings with non-address related or invalid information in any address specific field with or without contacting the listing broker.
  2. Property Description
    Property descriptions are for the description of the property that is for sale or for lease only. The posting of contact name, phone number, fax number, company information or URL links for any contacts including those who are not BuzzTarget members is strictly prohibited in this section. This type of information in the Property Description field will be removed from the listing and the listing broker will receive an email informing them of the change. Habitual violations of this policy will result in BuzzTarget's removal of all of such Customer's active listings on the Service until all such content has been appropriately rectified.
  3. Property Type
    Properties must be identified with the appropriate property type. Adding the same listings under multiple property types is prohibited. BuzzTarget allows each listing to associate with property types in order to improve exposure for the listing during searches. BuzzTarget reserves the right to change or remove property types deemed to be misleading.
  4. Pricing
    A valid Sales Price in the Price Asking field for the listed property is required for all BuzzTarget Sale Listings and a valid rental rate for each space is required for all BuzzTarget Lease Listings. Confidential pricing is permitted on sale listings for Premium Members only. BuzzTarget reserves the right to remove all listings that are deemed to have invalid prices or rental rates including any listing with $0 listed in Lease Rate, Sales Price and Opinion of Value fields.
2. Listing Parameters
In order to maximize the features of the BuzzTarget service, Customers should note certain parameters in the listing process.
  1. Commercial Property
    BuzzTarget is a web site for commercial real estate. Listing of single-family residences is prohibited on the BuzzTarget website, except if such residences have a residential income purpose (e.g. to purchase a residence whose customary use has been as a rental property), in which case such properties may be listed under the Residential Income category only. The listing of single family residential income property under all other categories is prohibited. Any listing deemed to be a non-income generating, single-family residence will be removed from the system during the listing approval process and an email will be sent to the Customer stating that the property has been identified as a single-family residential property.
  2. Contact Information
    Premium Member’s Listings added to the BuzzTarget web site will receive Premium Member benefits if the Primary Contact referenced for that listing is a Premium Member within his or her Featured Listing Plan.
  3. Duplicates
    Property Listings BuzzTarget prohibits the listing of a single property more than once on the web site at the same time. A duplicate is defined as the same physical property listed under more than one property ID. BuzzTarget reserves the right to remove any and all properties that are determined to be duplicates with or without contacting the listing broker. Customers may, however, list a property for sale and for lease at the same time. Space Listings BuzzTarget prohibits the listing of the same space more than once on the web site at the same time. A space listing is defined as a single suite or unit of space listed for lease. Total space available in a building cannot exceed the total square footage of the building. BuzzTarget reserves the right to combine duplicate space listings into a single listing or to remove the listing from the system with or without contacting the listing broker.
  4. Listing Quantity, Submission, and Display
    Members may list an unlimited number of listings on BuzzTarget.com. Premium Member subscription provides Premium exposure for the number of listings paid for in the Featured Listing Plan. Premium Listers must list all Featured listings in accordance with BuzzTarget's Terms and Conditions. Standard Listings submitted to BuzzTarget will only be available to Premium Listers and Premium Searchers searching for property on BuzzTarget and will not be fully displayed in search results for other Basic Members to view.
  5. Use of Photographs
    Building photographs posted, attached, or affixed to listings must be actual photographs of the building being listed. All such photographs must be either (a) the property of the listing broker or (b) the listing broker must have received all necessary rights and authorizations, including from the photographer and/or copyright owner of any photographs, to publish such photographs on the Customer's website or on BuzzTarget's website for the purpose of advertising the subject property. Photographs uploaded that are not directly related to the building or property being listed, including brokerage company logos, may be removed at the discretion of BuzzTarget.
  6. Listing Review
    All listings entered on BuzzTarget may be subject to review by BuzzTarget company personnel ("Listing Review") prior to becoming available for full viewing online. BuzzTarget reserves the right, but not the obligation, to review any listing entered by Customer on BuzzTarget. Although Customer's listings may be subject to Listing Review, Customer remains solely responsible for abiding by the Listing Policies and BuzzTarget's Terms and Conditions. The Listing Policies prohibit Customer from entering any listing that infringes upon the intellectual property rights of any party, or that otherwise violates BuzzTarget's Terms and Conditions. By entering listings on BuzzTarget, Customer warrants and represents that Customer owns or otherwise controls all of the rights to such content including, without limitation, all the rights necessary for Customer to provide, post, upload, input or submit such content. Customer acknowledges that BuzzTarget cannot police or control all of the content provided by Customer(s) that is made available on BuzzTarget. Listings that violate any of the Listing Policies stated herein will not receive Listing Review approval for active posting on BuzzTarget until the issue in question has been addressed. When conducting Listing Review, new listings added to BuzzTarget are examined to determine whether such listings are in compliance with the Listing Policies. In the event Listing Review determines a listing violates Listing Policies (including but not limited to containing inaccurate or incomplete information), Listing Review will send an email message to the Customer about such listing, clearly stating how such proposed listing does not conform to established Listing Policies and offering solutions on how to rectify the deficiency. After the Customer receives notice from Listing Review, the Customer will be given a reasonable amount of time (routinely, 48 hours) to respond. It is then the sole responsibility of the Customer to review the communication from Listing Review, revise the listing as appropriate, and resubmit the corrected listing. Once the appropriate revision has been made, and Listing Review determines the listing is compliant with Listing Policies, the listing will be made available for full viewing on the site. However, if the Customer fails to respond to the communication from Listing Review, BuzzTarget in its sole discretion reserves the right to remove any and all content that continues to violate the Listing Policies, including disallowing listings from the Service.
3. Prohibited Conduct
Customers are advised to refrain from engaging in the conduct specified in this section, as it is not permitted on the BuzzTarget Service.
  1. "Billboard" Listings
    Listings on BuzzTarget are for properties that are currently offered for Sale or Lease. It is not permitted to post listings on the Service that have already been sold or are no longer on the market, i.e. posting listings on the Service for marketing or advertising purposes ("Billboard Listings"). All listings for properties already sold or off-market will be removed.
  2. Keyword Manipulation
    BuzzTarget offers the ability to search for properties on key words. This is designed to enable searchers to narrow their criteria based on specific requirements. Keyword manipulation is unfair to searchers by returning listings that clearly do not meet their criteria. Keywords identified in the property name, property description, location description or property highlights field that are clearly not relevant to the property being marketed will be removed by Listing Review. Habitual abuse of this policy by a Customer may, at the sole discretion of BuzzTarget, lead to the removal of all of that Customer's active listings from the web site and suspension of that Customer's ability to list properties on the Service.
  3. Offensive Language
    Use of profanity or vulgar language in any section of the BuzzTarget database is strictly prohibited. This includes the use of language that is generally considered obscene, profane, sexual, hateful, or racist in nature. Listing or user information that includes profane language will be removed from the Service immediately. Customers posting such language to the BuzzTarget web site may be subject to disciplinary action, including indefinite suspension of a Customer's account, temporary suspension or a formal warning.

Your list is ok if:

  2. People who have opted in to receive emails from you offline
  3. People who opted in to receive emails from you at a co-registration site
  4. You're sending on behalf of your customer, and they comply with the above.

Any attorney fees, court costs, or other costs incurred in collection of delinquent undisputed amounts shall be the responsibility of and paid for by Customer. If payment is not current, BuzzTarget may immediately cease to provide any and all Deliverables to the customer.

  3. Other Information We Receive and Store: When you register to use BuzzTarget, we store "cookies," which are strings of code, on your computer. We also use electronic images known as Web beacons. With those cookies, we are aware of and collect information concerning when you visit our Website, when you use BuzzTarget, your browser type and version, your operating system and platform and other similar information. With Web beacons, we can determine when you open email we send you, and collect other data. You may turn off all cookies that have been placed on your computer by following the instructions on your browser on how to block cookies that have been placed on your computer. However, if you block our cookies it will be more difficult, and maybe impossible, to use the Services.
  4. Tracking Our Emails to Our Customers: When we send emails to our own registered BuzzTarget customers, we'll sometimes track who opened the emails and who went so far as to click on any of the hyperlinks. We do this to measure the performance of our Email Blasts, and to improve our offerings to specific customer segments.

  6. Information From Other Sources: We may obtain additional information about you by using your email address, or other information, to directly, or through one or more services, search over the internet, or elsewhere. We thereby obtain information that appears to be related to such email address or other information, such as a name, age and participation in social media websites, (such information being referred to herein as "Supplemental Member Information").
3. Use and Disclosure of Your Personal Information
We will use and disclose your Personal Information only as follows:
  1. To promote use, including continued use, of our Services. For example, if you leave your personal information when you visit our Website and do not sign up for any of the Services, we may send you one or more emails asking whether you wish to sign up. If you use any of our Services, and may benefit from using one or more other Services we offer, we may send you an email telling you about the other Service or Services.
  2. To bill and collect sums owed to us. Uses for this purpose include sending you emails, invoices, receipts and notices of delinquency, to alert you if we need a different credit card number, and to otherwise try to collect money owed. We use third parties to handle secure credit card transaction processing and send billing information to such third parties, who maintain all information in confidence, to process your orders and credit card payments. To learn more about what steps we take to safeguard such data, see "5" below.
  3. To send you System Alert Messages to let you know about temporary or permanent changes to our Services including planned outages, new features offered, version updates, point releases, major releases, abuse warnings, changes to our Privacy Policy and possibly other documents and agreements.
  4. To help enforce compliance with our Terms of Use and applicable law including, but not limited to, helping to create white lists and black lists, to develop and test algorithms, heuristics and other methods and tools for detecting violations and to apply those methods and tools. For example, in this regard, although it's the Member's responsibility to make sure that the email address of anyone who opts out of receiving Emails from that Member is removed from all of that Member's Distribution Lists, we try to make that happen automatically.
  5. To provide customer support and obtain feedback.
  6. To protect the rights and safety of us and our employees, Members, owners, officers and others
  7. To meet legal requirements such as complying with court orders and valid subpoenas.

  10. To support and improve the Services we offer including adding features and providing benchmarking and other comparison information regarding, for example, the relative success of a Members' Email Blasts and Listings compared to other Listing and Email Blast companies in the same or different industries. Benchmarking and similar information is derived from aggregating and analyzing data.
  11. To communicate with you concerning your account for an informational, as opposed to promotional, purpose.
  12. To transfer your information in the event of the sale of substantially all of the assets of our business to a third-party or in the event of a merger, consolidation or acquisition. However, in such event, any acquirer will be subject to our obligations under this Privacy Policy.
