Bōde Canada

Terms of service

Please read these Terms of Service (“Terms”) carefully as they contain important information about your legal rights, remedies and obligations. By accessing or using the Bōde Platform, you agree to comply with and be bound by these Terms.

Last Updated: April 7, 2022

Thank you for using Bōde!

These Terms constitute a legally binding agreement ("Agreement") between you and Bōde (as defined below) governing your access to and use of the Bōde website, including any subdomains thereof, and any other websites through which Bōde makes its services available (collectively, "Site"), our mobile, tablet and other smart device applications, and application program interfaces (collectively, "Application") and all associated services (collectively, "Bōde Services"). The Site, Application and Bōde Services together are hereinafter collectively referred to as the “Bōde Platform”.

When these Terms mention “Bōde,” “we,” “us,” or “our,” it refers to the Bōde company you are contracting with. Your contracting entity will generally be determined based on your country of residence or establishment.

Our collection and use of personal information in connection with your access to and use of the Bōde Platform is described in our Privacy Policy .

1. Scope of Bōde Services

  • 1.1. The Bōde Platform is an online marketplace that enables registered users (“Account Holders”) to publish Seller Listings on the Bōde Platform (“Listings”) and to communicate and transact directly with Account Holders that are seeking to make offers on Seller Listings (Account Holders using Listings are “Buyers”).
  • 1.2. As the provider of the Bōde Platform, Bōde does not own, create, sell, resell, provide, control, manage, offer, deliver, or supply any Listings. Sellers alone are responsible for the creation of their Listings. When Account Holders negotiate a contract to transfer ownership of a home, they are entering into a contract directly with each other. Bōde is not and does not become a party to or other participant in any contractual relationship between Account Holders.
  • 1.3. Bōde has no control over and does not guarantee (i) the existence, quality, safety, suitability, or legality of any Listings Services, (ii) the truth or accuracy of any Listing descriptions, Ratings, Reviews, or other Account Content or (iii) the performance or conduct of any Account or third party. Bōde does not endorse any Account or Listing Service. Any references to an Account being "verified" (or similar language) only indicate that the Account has completed a relevant verification or identification process and nothing else. Any such description is not an endorsement, certification or guarantee by Bōde about any Account, including of the Account's identity or background or whether the Account is trustworthy, safe or suitable. You should always exercise due diligence and care when deciding whether to view a home or communicate and interact with other Account Holders, whether online or in person.
  • 1.4. If you choose to use the Bōde Platform as a Seller or Co-Seller (as defined below), your relationship with Bōde is limited to a brokerage relationship and not an employee, agent, joint venture or partner of Bōde for any reason, and you act exclusively on your own behalf and for your own benefit, and not on behalf, or for the benefit, of Bōde. Bōde does not, and shall not be deemed to, direct or control you generally or in your performance under these Terms specifically. You acknowledge and agree that you have complete discretion whether to List on the Bōde Platform.
  • 1.5. To promote the Bōde Platform and to increase the exposure of Listings to potential Buyers, Listings and other Account Content may be displayed on other websites, in applications, within emails, and in online and offline advertisements. To assist Account Holders who speak different languages, Listings and other Account Content may be translated, in whole or in part, into other languages. Bōde cannot guarantee the accuracy or quality of such translations and Account Holders are responsible for reviewing and verifying the accuracy of such translations. The Bōde Platform may contain translations powered by Google. Google disclaims all warranties related to the translations, express or implied, including any warranties of accuracy, reliability, and any implied warranties for merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement.
  • 1.6. The Bōde Platform may contain links to third-party websites or resources (“Third-Party Services”). Such Third-Party Services may be subject to different terms and conditions and privacy practices. Bōde is not responsible or liable for the availability or accuracy of such Third-Party Services, or the content, products, or services available from such Third-Party Services. Links to such Third-Party Services are not an endorsement by Bōde of such Third-Party Services.
  • 1.7. Due to the nature of the Internet, Bōde cannot guarantee the continuous and uninterrupted availability and accessibility of the Bōde Platform. Bōde may restrict the availability of the Bōde Platform or certain areas or features thereof, if this is necessary in view of capacity limits, the security or integrity of our servers, or to carry out maintenance measures that ensure the proper or improved functioning of the Bōde Platform. Bōde may improve, enhance and modify the Bōde Platform and introduce new Bōde Services from time to time.

2. Eligibility, Using the Bōde Platform, Account Verification

  • 2.1. In order to access and use the Bōde Platform or register a Bōde Account you must be an individual at least 18 years old or a duly organized, validly existing business, organization or other legal entity in good standing under the laws of Alberta, British Columbia or Ontario and able to enter into legally binding contracts.
  • 2.2. Bōde may make access to and use of the Bōde Platform, or certain areas or features of the Bōde Platform, subject to certain conditions or requirements, such as completing a verification process, meeting specific quality or eligibility criteria, meeting Ratings or Reviews thresholds, or an Account’s booking and cancellation history.
  • 2.3. User verification on the Internet is difficult and we do not assume any responsibility for the confirmation of any Account’s identity. Notwithstanding the above, for transparency and fraud prevention purposes, and as permitted by applicable laws, we may, but have no obligation to (i) ask Account Holders to provide a form of government identification or other information or undertake additional checks designed to help verify the identities or backgrounds of Account Holders, (ii) screen Account Holders against third party databases or other sources and request reports from service providers, and (iii) where we have sufficient information to identify an Account, obtain reports from public records of criminal convictions or sex offender registrations or an equivalent version of background or registered sex offender checks in your local jurisdiction (if available).
  • 2.4. The access to or use of certain areas and features of the Bōde Platform may be subject to separate policies, standards or guidelines, or may require that you accept additional terms and conditions, before you can access the relevant areas or features of the Bōde Platform. If there is a conflict between these Terms and terms and conditions applicable to a specific area or feature of the Bōde Platform, the latter terms and conditions will take precedence with respect to your access to or use of that area or feature, unless specified otherwise in the latter terms and conditions.

3. Modification of these Terms

  • Bōde reserves the right to modify these Terms at any time in accordance with this provision. If we make changes to these Terms, we will post the revised Terms on the Bōde Platform and update the “Last Updated” date at the top of these Terms. We will also provide you with notice of the modifications by email at least thirty (30) days before the date they become effective. If you disagree with the revised Terms, you may terminate this Agreement with immediate effect. We will inform you about your right to terminate the Agreement in the notification email. If you do not terminate your Agreement before the date the revised Terms become effective, your continued access to or use of the Bōde Platform will constitute acceptance of the revised Terms.

4. Account Registration

  • 4.2. You may register a Bōde Account using an email address and creating a password, or through your account with certain third-party social networking services, such as Facebook or Google ("SNS Account").

  • 5.2. The Bōde Platform, Bōde Content, and Account Content may in its entirety or in part be protected by copyright, trademark, and/or other laws of Canada. You acknowledge and agree that the Bōde Platform and Bōde Content, including all associated intellectual property rights, are the exclusive property of Bōde and/or its licensors or authorizing third-parties.

12. Indemnification

  • To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to release, defend (at Bōde’s option), indemnify, and hold Bōde and its affiliates and subsidiaries, including but not limited to, their officers, directors, employees and agents, harmless from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, losses, and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees, arising out of or in any way connected with (i) your breach of these Terms or our Policies or Standards, (ii) your improper use of the Bōde Platform or any Bōde Services, (iii) your interaction with any Account, or Viewing, losses or damages (whether compensatory, direct, incidental, consequential or otherwise) of any kind arising in connection with or as a result of such interaction, stay, participation or use, (iv) your breach of any laws, regulations or third party rights.
