4. User Content

You may be able to post reviews, comments, photos, videos, and other content on the Site (“Your Content”); and submit suggestions, ideas, comments, questions, or other information, so long as Your Content is not illegal, obscene, threatening, defamatory, invasive of privacy, infringing of intellectual property rights (including publicity rights), or otherwise injurious to third parties or objectionable, and does not consist of or contain software viruses, political campaigning, commercial solicitation, chain letters, mass mailings, or any form of “spam” or unsolicited commercial electronic messages.

5. The Directory

One of the features offered on the Site is a directory of English-speaking real estate professionals in Israel (the “Directory”). The Directory members (“Members“) are carefully selected, eligible local real estate professionals. You understand and agree that the Members who appear on the Directory are not employed by Buyitinisrael. Buyitinisrael is not responsible or liable for any acts or omissions created or performed by the Members, including without limitation, as a result of any agreement between you and such Member or any service performed thereby. As owners of the Directory, we understand that the quality of our Members is key. Therefore, we make an effort to accept only those real estate professionals, who are qualified and experienced in their field of practice, with a special affinity for the English-speaking market, to be listed in the Directory. While we make commercially reasonable efforts to vet each Member before approving their membership, this is not an exact science, and BUYITINISRAEL MAKES NO EXPRESS OR IMPLIED REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES REGARDING THE MEMBERS, OR THE APPROPRIATENESS, ACCURACY, SUFFICIENCY, CORRECTNESS, VERACITY, VALUE, COMPLETENESS, OR TIMELINESS OF THEIR SERVICES PROVIDED TO YOU OR THEIR CONTENT DISTRIBUTED THROUGH OUR WEBSITE.

6. Member-Specific Terms

6.1. Membership of the Directory is granted to eligible individuals only (i.e., membership will not be granted to a company representing a group of individuals). An eligible individual is one who (cumulative): (i) provides a professional service relating to real estate in Israel; (ii) To the extent applicable, holds valid licensing/certification required in Israel in his/her field of practice; (attorneys must be current members of the Israeli Bar Association, Real Estate Agents and Appraisers must hold a valid license from the Israeli Ministry of Justice, Architects and Engineers must hold valid certification from the Israeli Ministry of Labor, Social Affairs and Social Services); (iii) maintains a high level of English proficiency to communicate effectively in conversation and writing; and (iv) has paid annual Directory membership fees, and other service fees, to the extent relevant. For the avoidance of doubt, except as expressly set forth herein, Directory membership fees are non-refundable.

6.2. If you are a Member, you hereby represent and warrant that you have all the rights and licenses required to provide your professional services in Israel and that you will ensure all such licenses and approvals remain current as long as you retain your membership with the Directory. You will immediately notify Buyitinisrael if your professional status changes.

6.3. Members are invited to submit content (articles, guides, FAQs, op-eds) to be published on the Site (“Member Content”). If you are a Member, you hereby represent and warrant that all Member Content will be original, non-infringing content that is unique to the Site (i.e., not published anywhere else) and relate to your specific field of practice, that you own or otherwise control all of the rights to the Member Content; that the Member Content is accurate; that use of the Member Content does not violate these Terms and will not cause injury to any person or entity; and that you will indemnify Buyitinisrael for all claims resulting from the Member Content. Buyitinisrael takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any Member Content posted by you.
