1.1 Agency Relationship.

BR acts as a facilitator to help you make payments to Participating Lessors. We act as your agent based upon your direction and your requests to use our Services that require us to perform tasks on your behalf. BR will at all times hold your funds separate from its corporate funds, will not use your funds for its operating expenses or any other corporate purposes, and will not voluntarily make funds available to its creditors in the event of bankruptcy or for any other purpose. You acknowledge that (i) BR is not a bank and the Service is a payment processing service for payment of your rental financial obligations rather than a banking service, and (ii) BR is not acting as a trustee, fiduciary or escrow with respect to your funds, but is acting only as an agent and custodian. Therefore, when you submit a payment for processing, we are authorized to take commercially reasonable action, to consummate the transaction on your behalf.

1.2 No Interest.

You agree that you will not receive interest or other earnings on the funds that BR handles as your agent. BR may earn interest on those funds, or may receive a reduction in fees or expenses charged for banking services by the banks that hold your funds.

2. Description of BR's Services.

BR currently provides access to an Internet-based credit card and on-line electronic checking payment service to rental property owners, rental property managers (each, a "Participating Lessor") and their respective tenants (the "Service"), which facilitates various electronic payment services for monthly rents, periodic rents, security deposits, other deposits, condo fees, timeshare charges, utility payments, common area maintenance, operational costs, other fixed payments and all other fees and charges related to leased real estate, fixed or variable (collectively, the "Rent").

Your credit card or on-line electronic checking made through the Service will be remitted to your Participating Lessor in accordance with our service agreement with the Participating Lessors. You will receive a timely written confirmation from BR acknowledging the BR's receipt of credit card or on-line electronic checking payments. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, any new features, which enhance or augment BR's current service offering shall be subject to the terms and conditions of service, and BR may charge additional amounts for any premium services to which you agree to enroll. In order to use the Service, you will need to have access to the Site via the Internet.

3. Fees and Payments.

To use this Service, you agree that BR shall be entitled to charge you a per-transaction service fee of 2.65% of the Rent being paid (the "Service Fee") plus an additional $3.00 (the "Transaction Fee")(collectively, the "Fees"). When you receive your email notification that the transaction has processed, such statement will also include itemized the Service Fee and Transaction Fee being charged. BR reserves the right at any time to: (a) charge and/or increase the Fees for the Services, and/or (b) impose additional Fees for accessing some of the current Services as a premium service.

For payments you believe were improperly made, BR may, in its sole discretion, void, rescind or issue a credit for your Rent payment made through the Service at any time prior to the remittance of such Rent payment to your Participating Lessor. If a Rent payment dispute arises after payment is in process, the responsibility to settle the Rent payment dispute rests with you and Participating Lessor. You waive the right to cancel credit card payments that have been cleared through BR's merchant banking vendor. In the event of any refund, rescission or credit of a Rent payment by BR, the applicable Transaction Fee will NOT be credited to your account and BR shall be entitled to keep such amounts irrespective of the reason for the refund, rescission or credit.
