By submitting, posting or displaying the content you give us a perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, adapt, modify, translate, and publish any content which you submit, post or display on or through, the Services. This license is for the sole purpose of enabling us to make the Services work for our users.
You understand that we, in performing the required technical steps to provide the Services to our users, may (a) transmit or distribute your content over various public networks and in various media; and (b) make such changes to your content as are necessary to conform and adapt that content to the technical requirements of connecting networks, devices, services or media. You agree that this license shall permit us to take these actions.
You confirm and warrant to us that you have all the rights, power and authority necessary to grant the above license.
Other than the limited licenses set forth in these Terms, we acknowledge and agree that we obtain no right, title or interest from you (or your licensors) under these Terms in or to any content that you submit, post, transmit or display on, or through, the Services, including any intellectual property rights which subsist in that Content (whether those rights happen to be registered or not, and wherever in the world those rights may exist). Unless you have agreed otherwise in writing with us, you agree that you are responsible for protecting and enforcing those rights and that we have no obligation to do so on your behalf.
Proprietary rights and license from us
You acknowledge and agree that we (or our licensors) own all legal right, title and interest in and to the Services, including any intellectual property rights which subsist in the Services (whether those rights happen to be registered or not, and wherever in the world those rights may exist). You further acknowledge that the Services may contain information which is designated confidential by us and that you shall not disclose such information without our prior written consent.
Unless you have agreed otherwise in writing with us, nothing in the Terms gives you a right to use any of our trade names, trade marks, service marks, logos, domain names, and other distinctive brand features.
We give you a personal, worldwide, royalty-free, non-assignable and non-exclusive license to use the software provided to you by us as part of the Services as provided to you by us (referred to as the "Software" below).

The Software which you use may automatically download and install updates from time to time from us. These updates are designed to improve, enhance and further develop the Services and may take the form of bug fixes, enhanced functions, new software modules and completely new versions. You agree to receive such updates (and permit us to deliver these to you) as part of your use of the Services.
Ending your relationship with us
The Terms will continue to apply until terminated by either you or us as set out below. If you want to terminate your legal agreement with us, you may do so by (a) notifying us at any time and (b) closing your accounts for all of the Services which you use, where we have made this option available to you. Your notice should be sent using the feedback form.
We may at any time terminate our legal agreement with you if you have breached any provision of the Terms (or have acted in a manner which clearly shows that you do not intend to, or are unable to comply with the provisions of the Terms); or we are required to do so by law (for example, where the provision of the Services to you is, or becomes, unlawful); or the partner with whom we offered the Services to you has terminated its relationship with us or ceased to offer the Services to you; or if the provision of the Services to you is, in our opinion, no longer commercially viable.
When these Terms come to an end, all of the legal rights, obligations and liabilities that you and we have benefited from, been subject to (or which have accrued over time whilst the Terms have been in force) or which are expressed to continue indefinitely, shall be unaffected by this cessation. The provisions of the paragraph below regarding governing law and jurisdiction shall continue to apply to such rights, obligations and liabilities indefinitely.
About us / Miscellaneous
rentreceipt.net is created by Kennberg's.
The Terms constitute the whole legal agreement between you and us and govern your use of the Services (but excluding any services which we may provide to you under a separate written agreement), and completely replace any prior agreements between you and us in relation to the Services.
You agree that if we do not exercise or enforce any legal right or remedy which is contained in the Terms (or which we have the benefit of under any applicable law), this will not be taken to be a formal waiver of our rights and that those rights or remedies will still be available to us.
If any court of law, having the jurisdiction to decide on this matter, rules that any provision of these Terms is invalid, then that provision will be removed from the Terms without affecting the rest of the Terms. The remaining provisions of the Terms will continue to be valid and enforceable.
The Terms, and your relationship with us under the Terms, shall be governed by the laws of the Province of Ontario without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. You and we agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within the Province of Ontario to resolve any legal matter arising from the Terms. Notwithstanding this, you agree that we shall still be allowed to apply for injunctive remedies (or an equivalent type of urgent legal relief) in any jurisdiction.
You agree that you are not a third-party beneficiary of these terms as they may be applied to other users of the Service, and that we have no obligation to enforce these Terms.

THE LIMITATIONS ON OUR LIABILITY TO YOU IN THIS SECTION SHALL APPLY WHETHER OR NOT WE HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF OR SHOULD HAVE BEEN AWARE OF THE POSSIBILITY OF ANY SUCH LOSSES ARISING.
To the extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless us, our affiliates, officers, directors, employees and agents, from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debt, and expenses (including but not limited to attorney's fees) arising from: (i) your use of and access to the Services; (ii) your violation of any of these Terms; (iii) your violation of any third party right, including without limitation any copyright, property, or privacy right; or (iv) any claim that your Content caused damage to a third party.
