2. Account registration
To use the Service, you may register or create a user account (your “Account”) by providing all required data or information in a complete and truthful manner. You may also use the Service without registering or creating an Account; however, this may cause limited availability of certain features or functions. By creating an Account or otherwise entering your email and telephone contact information on any form on the Sites you expressly consent to receive marketing communications about our Services at the email address and telephone number provided, which communications we may deliver via email, phone, and text messages, including using an automatic telephone dialing system and/or an artificial or prerecorded voice.

Your consent is not a condition of making any purchase or entering into a real estate transaction and you may revoke it at any time by replying “STOP” to any of our texts, unsubscribing from email communications using the unsubscribe link provided therein, or by emailing email@example.com. Standard message and data rates may apply.
You are responsible for any activity that occurs on your Account, regardless of whether such use was authorized by you. You must keep your login credentials confidential and safe from unauthorized use or disclosure.
By registering for an Account, you agree to be fully responsible for all activities that occur under your username and password. You understand you are prohibited from sharing your username and password with anyone, including other members of your household.
You are required to immediately and unambiguously inform eXp via the contact details set forth below of any suspicious or unauthorized use of your Account, or if you have reason to believe your Account credentials have been lost or stolen.

16. Arbitration; Class Action Waiver
YOU AGREE THAT ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND EXP ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THESE TERMS, YOUR USE OF THE SITES OR SERVICE, YOUR RIGHTS OF PRIVACY, OR OUR RELATIONSHIP WILL BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION. Arbitration shall be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) in conjunction with its Consumer Arbitration Rules. You hereby expressly and knowingly waive your right to file a lawsuit in court or have a trial by jury. Arbitration shall be conducted in Whatcom County, Washington by a single arbitrator. Any cause of action you may have under these Terms must be commenced within one (1) year after the claim or cause of action arises. The arbitrator’s award shall be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. Each of us shall be responsible for the costs of our own legal counsel at the arbitration.
Either you or eXp may start arbitration at any time. You and eXp agree to first send a notice of the dispute, to eXp at the address set forth below, or to you at your address on file with eXp, by certified mail or reputable courier. The notice must include the party’s contact information and the details of the dispute. We will attempt to resolve the dispute in good faith without the need for arbitration. If we are unable to resolve the dispute within thirty (30) days of receipt of the notice, either of us may start arbitration by filing a case with the AAA.
Nothing in this section shall limit eXp’s right to seek alternative remedies, including without limitation, injunctive relief in a court of law.
Class Action Waiver
By accessing and using the Sites and/or Service, you agree any claims you bring against eXp will be conducted only on an individual basis and not as part of a class, consolidated, or representative action. You hereby waive your right to participate in a class-action lawsuit or class-wide arbitration for any claims covered by this agreement to arbitrate.
If a court rules that this class action waiver is void or unenforceable for any reason, or that an arbitration can proceed as a class action, then the arbitration provision set forth above shall be deemed null and void in its entirety and the dispute shall be brought in the federal or state courts in Whatcom County, Washington.
YOU UNDERSTAND THAT IN THE ABSENCE OF THIS SECTION, YOU WOULD HAVE HAD A RIGHT TO LITIGATE THROUGH A COURT, TO HAVE A JUDGE OR JURY DECIDE YOUR CASE, AND TO BE A PARTY TO A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE TO HAVE ANY CLAIMS DECIDED INDIVIDUALLY, THROUGH ARBITRATION.
Small Claims Court
This agreement to arbitrate does not preclude you from resolving any disputes that meet the jurisdictional requirements for small claims court in such court.
17. Claims of Copyright Infringement (Digital Millennium Copyright Act)
eXp respects the intellectual property rights of others. We comply with the applicable provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) (17 U.S.C. § 512, as amended).
