2. Information Sharing/Reselling
By using the website and inputting personal information the user understands that Float will use such information for internal purposes and with your permission or upon your request may also provide that information to affiliated companies or persons. Float takes care to see that user information is not transmitted to unauthorized persons or the general public but is not liable for such information transmission due to theft, hacking or software errors.
3. Information Aggregation
Float is not responsible for any errors in displayed information or delays in displaying information. All information on the website is either transmitted to Float from other entities or persons or was obtained through publicly available government sources. Issues of data accuracy may be brought to the attention of Float by sending feedback but it is likely that such information accuracy cannot be corrected by Float and the entity or person that generated the information must be appealed to. For example: incorrect 3rd party information can only be changed by the 3rd party. However, in order to reduce workload of our 3rd party servers, our servers only request 3rd party (i.e.: school and Walk Score®) information when the property address is entered into the property, or the property is created. Removing and re entering this information may update inconsistencies in the 3rd party information.

Float and/or its suppliers or real estate professionals are not liable for any direct, indirect, punitive, incidental, special or consequential damages or other injury arising out of or in any way connected with the use of this website and/or Float’s services or with the delay or inability to use this website, or for any information, software, products and services obtained through this website, or otherwise arising out of the use of this website, whether resulting in whole or in part, from breach of contract, tortuous behavior, negligence, strict liability or otherwise, even if Float and/or its suppliers had been advised of the possibility of damages.

8.2 Dispute Resolution Process
Any claim or controversy arising out of or relating to the use of this website, to the goods or services provided by Float, or to any acts or omissions for which you may contend Float is liable, including but not limited to any claim or controversy as to arbitrability (“Dispute”), shall be finally, and exclusively, settled by arbitration. The arbitration shall be held before one arbitrator under the commercial arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in force at that time. The arbitration shall be venued in Seattle, Washington. The arbitrator shall be selected pursuant to the AAA rules or from a list of arbitrators provided by Float. Filing and other non-award costs will be paid for, in equal shares, by both parties except that the fee to the arbitrator will be paid by the non-prevailing party. To begin the arbitration process, a party must make a written demand. Should any State or Federal law conflict with the above rules for resolving disputes or the AAA rules, such conflicting rules shall be severed from the enforceable rules and the enforceable rules shall survive and control the dispute resolution process. Any gaps left in the process due to severed rules shall be resolved at the discretion of the selected arbitrator.
Any judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrators may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction in Seattle, Washington. The arbitrators shall not have the power to award damages in connection with any dispute in excess of actual compensatory damages and shall not multiply actual damages or award consequential, punitive or exemplary damages, and each party irrevocably waives any claim thereto. The agreement to arbitrate shall not be construed as an agreement to the joinder or consolidation of an arbitration under this agreement with arbitration of disputes or claims of any non-party, regardless of the nature of the issues or disputes involved.
This agreement provides that all disputes between you and Float will be resolved by binding arbitration. You thus give up your right to go to court to assert or defend your rights. You also give up your right to participate in or bring class actions. Your rights will be determined by neutral arbitrators and not a judge or jury. You are entitled to a fair hearing, but the arbitration procedures are simpler and more limited than rules applicable in court. Arbitrator decisions are enforceable as any court order and are subject to very limited review by a court. By using Float’s goods and services you consent to these restrictions.
Should a dispute arise and should the arbitration provisions herein become inapplicable or unenforceable, or in any instance of any lawsuit between you and Float, the parties agree that jurisdiction over and venue of any suit shall be exclusively in the state and federal courts sitting in Seattle, Washington. If either party employs attorneys to enforce any right in connection with any dispute or lawsuit the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover reasonable attorneys’ fees.
