Terms of Service

The CIDA Terms of Service are found below. Please read carefully as this Agreement constitutes a binding, contractual agreement between CIDA and the purchaser of the CIDA Report.

CIDA TERMS OF SERVICE

Please Read Carefully: The following Terms & Conditions constitute a contract between CID Analytics, Inc. (CIDA) and the purchaser of the CIDA Report who has indicated acceptance of this agreement. The agreement places restrictions on the use and distribution of confidential, copyrighted or otherwise legally protected intellectual property (IP) that may be associated with the CIDA Report and the CIDA Score. The unauthorized use or distribution of any IP or other materials protected by this agreement constitutes a violation of the copyright laws of the United States and the terms of this agreement. Any legal actions resulting from this transaction shall be adjudicated under the laws of the state of Delaware. The purchaser who generates this agreement shall hold harmless CID Analytics, Inc., its officers and employees from any suits, actions, damages or claims of liability arising from the due diligence efforts undertaken by CIDA on behalf of the purchaser of the CIDA Report which is the subject of this agreement; including but not limited to expenses related to litigation, court costs and attorney’s fees.

Introduction: Welcome to cidanalytics.com. This website is owned and operated by CID Analytics, Inc.. By visiting our website and accessing the information, resources, services, products, and tools we provide, you understand and agree to accept and adhere to the following terms and conditions, along with the terms and conditions as stated in our Privacy Policy (please refer to the Privacy Policy section below for more information). We reserve the right to change this Agreement from time to time without notice. You acknowledge and agree that it is your responsibility to review this Agreement periodically to familiarize yourself with any modifications. Your continued use of this site after such modifications will constitute acknowledgment and agreement of the modified terms and conditions.

This agreement is in effect as of Dec 1, 2017.

CIDA Report Fee: The cost for the CIDA Report is $350.00. This fee includes a telephone consultation with CIDA’s examiners to discuss any questions you may have after receiving your report. Payments must be processed though the payment platform on the CIDA website. You do not need a credit card to purchase a CIDA Report, but you must have a bank account with a routing number for a U.S.-based bank. All orders must be processed before documents may be submitted to CIDA.

Ordering a CIDA Report: You must acknowledge that you have read the Terms & Conditions before you will be able to place an order for a CIDA Report. Once you have completed this step you will be directed to the order form submission page where you may process and pay for your report. After your order has been processed you will receive an email confirming the order at the address you provided on the order form. The confirmation email contains the email address and instructions for submitting the documents required to prepare your CIDA Report. If you do not receive a confirmation email after submitting your order, please call 800-218-0302. When you place an order for a CIDA Report you are agreeing to provide the documents required by CIDA to complete the due diligence examination. CIDA does not participate in the process of requisitioning the documents as we have no legal right to any documents or information possessed by the homeowner association which is the subject of our examination.

Submission of Documents & Fees: Any fees associated with obtaining the documentation should be paid by the seller unless the terms of the offer specify that the buyer will pay any such fees. CIDA is not responsible for the cost of obtaining any of the required documentation nor is CIDA responsible for retrieving the documents required to prepare the CIDA Report. Ownership of the documents lies with the seller and the legal authority to obtain the documents from the HOA must be exercised by the seller in the event the HOA or Management refuses to accommodate the buyer’s request for documents.

Some associations warehouse their HOA documents with various online archiving services, which then charge users to download the documents once access to the documents has been authorized by the Board of Directors or Management. The fees for retrieving documents from these services can be substantial, so it is important for the buyer to establish in their offer which party will be responsible for payment of any such fees.
Once the purchaser has received confirmation of their order they should submit any and all meeting minutes provided by the seller. CIDA’s examiners will review the meeting minutes submitted by the purchaser to determine if there are any additional documents that should be requested from the seller.

CIDA will notify the purchaser of the Report if there are any additional documents that should be requested.
Once all of the documents have been submitted, CIDA will begin work on the CIDA Report. It is important for the purchaser to notify CIDA when they are satisfied that all documents have been received, as CIDA’s examiners have no way of determining when the transfer of documents from the seller to the buyer has been completed.

Delivery of the CIDA Report: Once your CIDA Report has been completed, CIDA will forward the Report via email to the address we have on file for the authorized user who ordered the report. To protect the privacy and confidentiality of the purchaser and the homeowners association which is the subject of the due diligence examination, CIDA requires that circulation of the report be limited to the authorized user and those parties with a legal agency relationship to the authorized user, or other parties specifically identified in the preceding paragraph.

In most instances your CIDA Report will be available within 48 hours of when we receive all of the required documentation. Partial document submissions will only delay the completion of the due diligence process and the completion of the CIDA Report. If you are under an offer deadline it is critical that all of the required documents are available at the time the order for the CIDA Report is submitted, and that the order is received as soon after the acceptance of the offer as possible. CIDA is not responsible for delays resulting from the failure of the documents to be made available in a timely manner.

Confidentiality of Documents: By placing an order for a CIDA Report the purchaser is agreeing to provide the documentation at no cost to CIDA. The CIDA Report, the CIDA Score and all documents obtained by CIDA during the course of the due diligence investigation are considered confidential information by CIDA. After the report has been delivered, CIDA will retain permanent possession of all documents obtained during the course of our investigation. All documents delivered by CIDA to the purchaser of the CIDA Report are considered confidential and are subject to the terms and restrictions set forth in this agreement.

Authorized Use of the CIDA Report: The purchaser of the CIDA Report is considered the authorized user of the report by CIDA. Ownership of the report content or any intellectual property related to the CIDA Report, including the CIDA Score, does not extend to the authorized user as a result of the purchase, either currently or at any point in the future. The content of the CIDA Report may not be copied, reproduced by electronic or mechanical means; or otherwise distributed to any third-party for any purpose other than the use or uses intended by CIDA and which are expressly permitted by the terms of the agreement, unless the authorized user has received written permission from CIDA, which if so granted shall not constitute a waiver of any other provisions of this agreement.

The authorized user may share the CIDA Report only with the parties directly involved in the purchase of real property (subject property) which is the subject the authorized user’s offer to purchase same; and which as a result of the offer to purchase has caused the authorized user to engage the services of CIDA to perform a financial due diligence investigation into the specific homeowners association in which the subject property is located. The parties directly involved in the sale shall include the seller; a lender, legal adviser or co-purchaser working on behalf of the purchaser and any real estate professionals who have an agency relationship with the buyer or the seller. In this context the term “agency relationship” is assumed to be the legal definition under the Oregon laws governing real estate transactions.

If a file-sharing service is used to transmit the final CIDA Report to the purchaser the point of delivery shall be the date and time indicated by the file-sharing service as the date and time when the CIDA Report was uploaded to the file sharing platform, regardless of when the purchaser might retrieve the file containing the CIDA Report from the file sharing service.
