PLEASE REVIEW THESE TERMS APPLIED TO YOUR ORDER.
The following terms apply to any Real Estate Agent or business considering purchasing a Marketing Package.By completing this form and submitting a $150 deposit, you are simply reserving your selected ZIP Codes (US) or Postal Routes (Canada) for a two week period. This implies that you intend to become a Customer, but you are not bound to sign any agreement or purchase any marketing, nor are you bound to eventually select those same specific areas for your marketing program (however any areas you do select must be available). Once you have selected your marketing territory and package, your marketing will begin after you review and sign a Marketing Service Agreement (contract), provided separately at the time of purchase.Discover Publications does not guarantee that the territories you have selected to reserve are available. They may already be in use or reserved. If this is the case, your deposit will be fully refunded. If they become available, Discover Publications will give the first right of refusal to persons or businesses whom have requested to be placed on a Waiting List, so long as they are reachable within seven business days, and in the order they have been placed on the Waiting List. If there are other persons or businesses who have joined a Waiting List behind your reservation, or are in line behind you on a Waiting List, you will be limited to 14 business days to sign a Marketing Service Agreement before your territories are made available to the next person or business on the Waiting List.Your entire deposit and any subsequent deposits will be applied in full to your first invoice. This is limited to deposits made within 6 months of signing your Marketing Service Agreement.If after 2 weeks you have taken no action to purchase a marketing package, Discover will release the ZIP/Postal Codes and you may be asked to again reserve them if you wish to again prevent others from using them. No person or business may reserve any territory for more than 6 weeks (consecutive or not consecutive) in any 6 month period, to prevent abuse of this courtesy. If your ZIP/Postal Codes are available and you choose not to proceed, you agree to forfeit your deposit. If your ZIP/Postal Codes are already reserved at the time you complete this form, Discover will promptly refund your deposit unless you reserve alternate ZIP/Postal Codes. First, Discover will contact you to discuss alternate ZIPs. If you cannot be reached after 14 business days, your deposit will automatically be refunded. If we reach you before this time and you decide not to select an alternate area, or there is none available, Discover will refund your deposit that same or the following business day. The refund may take up to 4 business days to appear in your bank account or on your credit card. You may also request a cash refund.ZIP/Postal Code reservation is limited to four ZIP/Postal Codes per deposit.By reserving ZIP/Postal Codes, you receive the benefit of preventing any Real Estate Agent or competing business from purchasing a marketing package targeting any home in any of those ZIP/Postal Codes for the two week period.
The following terms apply only to certain legacy Real Estate Agents and Businesses, and certain businesses and professionals in certain industries, publishing custom publications on indefinite terms and independent of a 12-month Marketing Services Agreement. These terms will likely not be applicable, as all new Real Estate Agent clients purchase Marketing Packages, which require a 12-month agreement (provided at the time of purchase).
