Please read these Terms and Conditions (“Terms”) carefully as they contain important information regarding your legal rights, remedies and obligations. By expressly consenting to these Terms when you register for a Liv Account (defined below) and periodically as these Terms are updated, you agree to comply with and be bound by these Terms.
Thank you for using the Liv App.
These Terms constitute a legally binding agreement (“Agreement”) between you and Liv Strategies Inc. and its affiliates (“Liv”, “we”, “us” and “our”) governing your access to and use of the Liv website (https://liv.rent/), including any subdomains thereof at any time, and any other websites through which we make the Liv Services (defined below) available (collectively, “Site”), our mobile, tablet and other smart device applications and web and desktop application program interfaces (collectively, “Application”) and all associated services (collectively, “Liv Services”). The Site, Application and Liv Services are together hereinafter collectively referred to as the “LivPlatform”.
When these Terms mention “you”, “your”, “Customer” or similar terms, this means the person or legal entity accessing or using the Liv Services. If you are accessing and using the Liv Services on behalf of a company (such as your employer, client or contracting entity) or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that company or other legal entity to this Agreement.
We reserve the right, at any time, to update and change any or all of these Terms, in our sole discretion. We will not reduce your rights under these Terms without your explicit consent. When we introduce changes, we will notify you of any changes to the Terms with an alert within the Liv Platform and request your consent to these Terms. We will also send an email update to our Members and subscribers to our newsletters and updates of such changes to the Terms. We will always indicate the date the last changes were published where “Last Updated” is noted above. We offer access to archived versions of the Terms for your review by emailing our Privacy Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Capitalized terms shall have the meanings set forth in this section, or in the sections where they are used.
i. LIV and LIV APP. Liv also refers to the trademark used to refer to the Liv Platform, the Site and the Application through which the Liv Services are provided, whether registered or unregistered at any time hereafter with the applicable governmental authorities in such jurisdictions as deemed necessary by Liv, and Liv App equally has the same use and definition herein.
ii. MEMBER. A user who completes Liv’s registration process as described under “Account Registration” below, creating a Liv Account for use on the Liv Platform.
iii. LISTING. A rental that is listed as available for rent via the Liv Platform.
iv. LANDLORD. A User who creates a Listing for rent via the Liv Platform. This includes any agent or property manager who, as an employee, contractor or agent for a Landlord creates and manages Listings on the Liv Platform on behalf of such parties with the authority of such Landlord.
v. RENTER. A Member who desires to rent or lease a Listing.
vi. TENANT. A Member who has entered into a Tenancy Agreement with a Landlord via the Liv Platform.
vii. USER. Any user of the Liv Services provided through the Liv Platform, which can include a Member, a Member who is a Renter and or a Tenant, a Landlord and or an agent on the Landlord’s behalf.
viii. USER CONTENT. All information and data, including text, images, photos, videos, audio, documents and any User-generated content in any media and format that a User of the Liv Services posts, uploads, publishes, submits, makes available or transmits to be made available through the Site, Application or Liv Platform generally.
In these Terms, words referring to a singular number include the plural and vice versa, words importing any gender include all genders and words importing persons include all legal persons, which means individuals and legal entities of all types. The term “including” means “including without limiting the generality of the foregoing”.
The Liv Platform is an online platform that connects Landlords with Renters and vice versa by matching with Listings. The Liv Platform facilitates all aspects of the residential rental process such as providing for Listings searches, submitting tenancy applications, credit verification and signing tenancy agreements provided through services accessible therein and made available from the Site and the Applications.
The Liv Platform serves as an online community only where Members meet online and communicate with each other based on their shared objective to meet appropriate parties with whom to enter into residential tenancy contracts in relation to Listings. We urge all Users to be responsible about their use of the Liv Services and any contract entered into regarding the rental of a residential property.
As the provider of the Liv Platform, Liv does not own, create, sell, resell, control, manage, offer, deliver or supply any Listings and Liv is not a party to any rental, lease, property management or other agreement between Users in relation to any Listings. When Users create a Tenancy Agreement amongst them, they are entering into a contract directly with each other. Liv is not and does not become a party to any Tenancy Agreement or contractual relationship between Landlords and Renters, nor is Liv a real estate broker, agent, property manager, insurance provider, legal professional or other professional advisor. Liv has no control over the conduct of Landlords, Renters, and other Users of the Liv Platform and Liv is not acting as an agent in any capacity for any User.
As a result, Liv has no control over and does not guarantee: (i) the existence, quality, safety, suitability, condition or legality of any of the Listings or properties appearing therein, including without limitation the legality of any short-term rentals offered by any Landlords on the Liv Platform; (ii) the truth or accuracy of the Listings and their descriptions, or any User Content uploaded at any time in relation to the Listings; (iii) the legal authority of the Landlords to rent such properties contained within the Listings to prospective Renters or the financial ability of Renters to pay lease payments in relation to such properties; or (iv) the performance or conduct of any User or any third party at any time. Any reference to a User being “verified” (or similar language) only indicates that the User has completed their Liv Profile (defined below) with relevant verification and identification details as discussed further below. Any reference to a User possessing a Liv Score (defined below) is based on the Personal Information provided by the User to Liv for disclosure to a Credit Agency (defined below) and the resulting information provided by such Credit Agency to Liv for inclusion in the Liv Score, however Liv does not have any control over and does not guarantee the accuracy of that Personal Information and the Credit Score provided by the Credit Agency. Any description as “verified” or reference to the User possessing a Liv Score is not an endorsement, certification or guarantee by Liv regarding the User, confirmation of their identity or background, or of their trustworthiness or suitability as a residential tenant.
To use certain features within the Liv Platform, we will invite you to register to create an account on the Liv Platform (“Liv Account”) to access and use certain features of the Liv Platform such as creating a Listing, communicating with a Member regarding a Listing and signing a Tenancy Agreement as a Member. Some Users may only require the functionality of creating and or reviewing and signing a Tenancy Agreement (as defined below) within the Liv Platform and will not seek access to and or use the further remaining features of the Liv Platform.
We will invite you to complete a personal profile on the Liv Platform via your Liv Account (“Liv Profile”), at your sole discretion, which may include your address, geographical area, profession, salary range and a photograph uploaded by you, in addition to any details regarding your roommate (“Roommate”). If completed by you, certain parts of your Liv Profile, including your profile picture, first name, and description, will appear to other individual users of the Liv Platform (each a “Member”, together the “Members”), however these will not be publicly visible on the Internet to anyone not signed into the Liv Platform.
By registering a Liv Account for a Person, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to legally bind that Person and grant us all permissions and licenses provided in these Terms.
You can register Liv Account using a phone number and SMS-text verification. You must provide accurate, current and complete information during the registration process and keep your Liv Account and public Liv Account profile page (“Liv Profile”) information updated at all times. You may not register more than one (1) Liv Account unless Liv authorizes you to do so. You may not assign or otherwise transfer your Liv Account to another party. Liv reserves the right to suspend or terminate your Liv Account and your access to the Liv Platform if you create more than one (1) Liv Account or if any information provided during the registration process or thereafter proves to be inaccurate, not current or incomplete. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of your Liv Account credentials, and you agree that you will take sole responsibility for any activities or actions under your Liv Account, whether or not you have authorized such activities or actions. You will immediately notify Liv of any unauthorized use of your Liv Account if such activity exists or is suspected.
You must be at least 18 years of age and able to enter into legally binding contracts in order to access and use the Liv Platform and or register for a Liv Account. By accessing or using the Liv Platform you represent and warrant that you are 18 years of age or older and have the legal capacity and authority to enter into a legally binding contract.
Listings. As a Member, you may create Listings. You will be asked to provide information regarding the rental property to be listed (“Rental”), including, but not limited to, the location, building name, lease price, lease term, size, features, furnishings, appliances, building amenities, rental restrictions and photos of the Rental. Members will be able to view your Listings via the Liv Platform based upon the information provided in your Listing and the criteria in their searches for properties. Visitors to Third Party Sites (i.e. Craigslist, Kiijiji, etc.) will be able to view your Listing outside of the Liv Platform if you select to export your Listing from the Liv Platform to such sites.
You agree to use the most accurate, current and complete information about your Listing and to update such information to keep it accurate, current and complete. You acknowledge and agree that you are responsible for any and all Listings you post. Accordingly, you represent and warrant that any Listing you post (a) will not breach any agreements you have entered into with any third parties and (b) will (i) be in compliance with all applicable laws, tax requirements, and rules and regulations that may apply to any Rental included in a Listing you post on the Liv Platform and (ii) will not conflict with the rights of any third parties at any time. Please note that Liv assumes no responsibility for a Landlord’s compliance with all applicable laws, rules, and regulations. Liv reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to remove or disable access to any Listing via the Liv Platform for any reason, including Listings that Liv, in its sole discretion, considers to be objectionable for any reason, in violation of these Terms or otherwise harmful to any Users or to the integrity of the Liv Platform and the safe and trusted environment that Liv is committed to provided thereon.
You understand and agree that Liv does not act as an insurer or as a contracting agent for you as a Landlord. If a Renter signs a Tenancy Agreement with you for your Rental, any Tenancy Agreement that you enter into with such Renter is between you and the Renter and Liv is not a party thereto. Further, Liv does not act as a professional advisor or legal professional in reviewing any Tenancy Agreement that you enter into with any Renters and therefore Liv disclaims any liability thereto.
By creating a user profile and/or using the Liv Platform, you grant Liv a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, irrevocable, perpetual, sub-licensable and transferable license to use any and all of your User Content that you post/generate through using the Liv Platform. This license ends when you delete content from your account or close your account, unless the content was previously shared with others and has not been deleted. We encourage users to control the information they share using the platform’s privacy settings.
You are solely responsible for all User Content that you make available on or through the Liv Platform. Accordingly, you represent and warrant that: (i) you either are the sole and exclusive owner of all User Content that you make available on or through the Liv Platform or you have all rights, licenses, consents and releases that are necessary to grant to Liv the rights in and to such User Content, as contemplated under these Terms; and (ii) neither the User Content nor your posting, uploading, publication, submission or transmittal of the User Content or Liv's use of the User Content (or any portion thereof) in connection with the Liv Platform will infringe, misappropriate or violate a third party's patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret, moral rights or other proprietary or intellectual property rights, or rights of publicity or privacy, or result in the violation of any applicable law or regulation.
You will not post, upload, publish, submit or transmit any User Content that: (i) is fraudulent, false, misleading (directly or by omission or failure to update information), misrepresentative or deceptive; (ii) is defamatory or libelous; (iii) is obscene, pornographic, vulgar or offensive; (iii) promotes discrimination or bigotry of any sort to any Persons, or constitutes harassment or potential harm of any sort to any Persons; (iv) is violent or threatening or promotes violence or actions that are threatening to any Person; or (v) promotes illegal or harmful activities or conduct. Liv may, without prior notice and in its sole discretion, remove or disable access to any User Content that Liv finds to be in violation of these Terms, or otherwise may be harmful or objectionable to Liv, its Members, third parties, or property.
Liv respects copyright law and expects its Members to do the same. If you believe that any content on the Liv Platform infringes the copyright that you may own in any material, please notify us at email@example.com.
a. No Obligation to Pre-Screen Content. You acknowledge that Liv has no obligation to pre-screen any User Content, although Liv reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to pre-screen, refuse or remove any User Content for any reason at any time. Without limiting the foregoing, Liv shall have the right, in its sole discretion, to remove any User Content that violates the Terms or is otherwise objectionable. By accepting and agreeing to these Terms, you hereby provide your irrevocable consent to such rights reserved by Liv in relation to User Content. You acknowledge and agree that you have no expectation of privacy concerning the transmission of any User Content you upload, transmit, distribute, post, email or otherwise make available (“Make Available”) via the Liv Platform (“Your Content”), including without limitation chat, text, or voice communications within the Liv Platform.
b. Storage. Liv has no obligation to store any of Your Content that you Make Available on the Liv Platform. Liv has no responsibility or liability for the deletion or accuracy of any User Content, including Your Content; the failure to store, transmit or receive transmission of User Content; or the security, privacy, storage, or transmission of other communications originating with or involving use of the Liv Platform.
The Liv Platform will enable Renters to request a credit history report (“Credit Report”) to be prepared regarding their credit history by a third party credit reporting agency (“CreditAgency”), which Credit Report will be used to gain a credit score (“Credit Score”) that forms part of our proprietary tenant score, the “Liv Score”, which is a weighted average derived from the aggregate of the Credit Score, any financial verification documents you upload to the Liv Platform solely for such purposes, confirmation of your employment history via LinkedIn and the results of searches on publicly available government agency database.
When a Member chooses to obtain a Liv Score from within the Liv Platform, the Member provides his/ her social insurance number, credit card number or driver’s license number (“Member ID”) within the Liv Score form on the Liv Platform and on the Member’s consent, the Member ID is forwarded to Amazon Web Services which encrypts the Member ID and sends it to the Credit Agency for processing. Amazon Web Services subsequently receives the Credit Report, if available, and will send the Credit Report to the Liv Platform, which immediately processes the Credit Score to classify the Credit Score as a certain weighted percentage in the Liv Platform and the Liv Platform subsequently destroys the Credit Report, without any storage, copy, reproduction or replication thereof on the Liv Platform. Upon receipt of the additional financial verification documents and the results of the additional publicly available Internet searches, the Liv Platform generates a Liv Score comprised of the weighted percentages of all the foregoing, which Liv Score is one of five potential scores: Excellent, Great, Average, Poor and Unknown Score, which may result when a Member does not have sufficient credit reporting and or other personal and financial verification details to weight in a score.
For the avoidance of any doubt, the Credit Score is never going to be disclosed in and of itself to Landlords or the Renter authorizing the Credit Score to be obtained by Liv as the Credit Score will always be encapsulated within and form part of the Liv Score, and will be indistinguishable as the Credit Score from the balance of the Liv Score.
If you request a Credit Report via the Liv Platform, you acknowledge and agree that, as between Liv and the Credit Agency, the Credit Agency is solely responsible for each Credit Report and the content thereof, including the accuracy, completeness, timeliness and reliability thereof. Liv does not provide and therefore is not responsible for any Credit Reports generated by any Credit Agency, including the accuracy, completeness, timelines, and reliability thereof. The ultimate decision as to whether to rent to any Person is solely within the discretion of the applicable Landlord, and Landlords are under no obligation to rent, or provide preference, to any Person who has requested a Liv Score through the Liv Platform as set out above.
For the avoidance of any doubt, Liv cannot and does not control the content contained in any Listings and the condition, legality or suitability of any Listings. Liv is not responsible for, does not provide any warranty in relation to, and any disclaims any and all liability related to any and all Listings. Accordingly, any Tenancy Agreement entered into between Landlords and Renters via the Liv Platform will be made at each party’s own risk.
The following terms in this section apply to everyone who: (1) signs up to receive one or more SMS message and/or messages from Liv, or (2) sends us messages via SMS.
When you sign up for Liv’s text alert program you are expressly consenting to receive text messages on behalf of Liv, to verify that you are human and that you are the person that created or is using your Liv Account (“Text Services”). You must provide your own wireless device, subscribe to a wireless service on a participating mobile carrier, and be able to receive text messages using that wireless device and your carrier’s service.
Text Services are the only way that you can log into your Liv Account. Therefore, if at any time you do not wish to continue receiving Text Services, then you will be required to cancel your Liv Account in order to do so.
You may opt out of the Text Services at any time by texting the word STOP to +1 (807) 788-8801 from the enrolled mobile device. If you do that, you will receive one additional message confirming that you will no longer receive messages from Liv regarding the verification of your identity. If you need help with our Text Services, then please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We do not charge a fee for the Text Services; however, depending on your messaging plan, your mobile carrier may charge you for each message we send you or that you send us. It is your responsibility to know whether your carrier will charge you per-message costs (for instance, if you do not have an unlimited texting plan, or have exceeded your monthly quota of free messages). We assume no responsibility for charges incurred by your using the Text Services.
The Text Services may not be available in all areas at all times. SMS messages are distributed via a complex system of service providers and we cannot guarantee their availability or performance. This means we may not be able to successfully transmit SMS messages to you, and we have no liability for any such transmission delay or message failure. The Text Services may not work in the event of product, software, coverage, or other changes made by your wireless carrier or changes you make to your mobile device.
You understand and agree that you are solely responsible for compliance with any and all laws, rules, regulations, and tax obligations that may apply to your use of the Liv Platform. You also agree that you may not and you agree that you will not:

Liv is very concerned with safeguarding your Personal Information and we build security into our Services in order to protect your Personal Information.

We will disclose details of any breach of the security, confidentiality or integrity of the Liv Platform and any Personal Information stored within the Liv Platform by email and or by an alert on the Liv Platform in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, insofar as this is consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement in relation to any investigation or other legal process; or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the integrity of the Liv Platform.
Liv will have the right to investigate and prosecute violations of these Terms to the fullest extent of the law.

If you obtain a Liv Score, any Landlord to whom you provide such Liv Score via the Liv Platform is under no obligation to accept any such Liv Score or to agree to enter into a Tenancy Agreement with you in relation to a Listing by virtue of your Liv Score or the creation thereof. You acknowledge and agree that all renting decisions are within the sole discretion of the applicable Landlord, and Liv has no control of any Landlord, including any business decisions regarding prospective Renters. Landlords should exercise due diligence in vetting prospective Renters through their own processes in addition to the use of the Liv Platform in deciding whether to rent to and contract with prospective Renters.

You can ask us for a record of all of the tenancy applications and Tenancy Agreements that you entered into while you maintained your Liv Account by sending us an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise. If for any reason an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
