As Bonema #upforcollab we want to empower you to become a more successful Real Estate Agent or Company. Bonema provides a personalized subscription service that allows its members to collaborate with other Real Estate Agents through the platform.
Acceptance of Terms
Your Bonema Membership will continue until terminated. To use our platform and services, you must first sign up for a membership, and provide us with a Payment Method. "Payment Method" means a current, valid, accepted method of payment, as may be updated from time to time, and which may include payment through your account with a third party. Unless you cancel your membership before your billing date, you authorize us to charge the membership fee for the next billing cycle to your Payment Method (see "Cancellation" below).
As a member, you may look for other Agents on the platform to collaborate with on real estate sales and other partnerships. Try your favorite membership for 90-days and cancel at any time if you see no benefit in our service. Bonema has the right to amend and modify memberships at any time. There is no entitlement to the provision of membership accounts, a certain usage capacity, or the error-free and uninterrupted availability of the Bonema #upforcollab platform and services.
To sign up as a member, you need to be at least 18 years old, enter a valid email address, and choose a secure password. Keep in mind, that you are responsible for your license according to section 34c of the German industrial code (Gewerbeordnung) issued by your responsible district authority (Bezirksamt). Basic and Premium members need to verify their accounts and therefore need to present the necessary licenses, documents, and their ID, or in case of a company the Trade Register Number (HRB XXXXXX X).
Your profile will be active and visible to others once you have completed the sign-up process and verified your membership. Your membership is only valid for you personally or your company, i.e. you may not, transfer it to a third party or allow a third party to use it. As a Premium member, you can add a co-worker for free. You are responsible for all activities that take place in your account within the network and must inform us immediately in case of any unauthorized access to your account.
All information that you provide during your registration must be complete, accurate, and current at all times to be able to provide our services to you and to get in touch with you when necessary.
We reserve the right to adjust the password requirements at any time to comply with current security standards and we may reset passwords, if necessary, for security reasons. We have the right to amend the requirements for registration or future use of membership accounts. If you do not meet any subsequent requirements, we are entitled to restrict the use of your account or terminate our contract according to section 8.
Membership Terms and Billing
4.1 Billing Cycle. The membership fee will be charged to your Payment Method on the payment date specified on the "Account" page. The length of your billing cycle will depend on the type of subscription that you choose when you signed up for the service. In some cases, your payment date may change, for example, if your Payment Method has not successfully settled, when you change your subscription plan or if your paid membership began on a day not contained in a given month. Visit our website and click on the "Billing details" link on the "Account" page to see your next payment date. If you signed up for Bonema #upforcollab using your account with a third party as a Payment Method, you can find the billing information about your membership by visiting your account with the applicable third party.
4.2 Payment Methods. To use our platform you must provide one or more Payment Methods. You authorize us to charge any Payment Method associated with your account in case your primary Payment Method is declined or no longer available to us for payment of your subscription fee. You remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. If a payment is not successfully settled, due to expiration, insufficient funds, or otherwise, and you do not cancel your account, we may suspend your access to the service until we have successfully charged a valid Payment Method. For some Payment Methods, the issuer may charge you certain fees, such as foreign transaction fees or other fees relating to the processing of your Payment Method. Local tax charges may vary depending on the Payment Method used. Check with your Payment Method service provider for details.
4.3 Updating your Payment Methods. You can update your Payment Methods by going to the "Account" page. We may also update your Payment Methods using the information provided by the payment service providers. Following any update, you authorize us to continue to charge the applicable Payment Method(s).

We may at our reasonable discretion change the price of our subscription plans from time to time to reflect the effect of changes in the total costs associated with our service.

6.2 Collaborating. At Bonema, agents decide what information they want to share on their profiles and listings and are free to decide who they want to work with.

Basic and Premium members are verified by Bonema and are able to see all provided property information in listings, as well as the full profiles of the agents. Please note that if you wish, you can provide just general information in your listings and profile, and upon request, you can ask for a Non-Disclosure-Agreement (NDA) prior to sending more information. Bonema can not be held liable for any issues among members, Bonema acts mainly as a platform provider for agents and companies up for collaboration.
6.3 Member Responsibility. The member who created the account and whose Payment Method is charged (the "Account Owner") is responsible for any activity that occurs through our platform. To maintain control over the account and to prevent anyone from accessing the account (which could include information on message history for the account), the Account Owner should maintain control and not reveal the password or details of the Payment Method associated with the account to anyone. You are responsible for updating and maintaining the accuracy of the information you provide to us relating to your account. We can terminate your account or place your account on hold in order to protect you, our platform, or our members from identity theft or other fraudulent activity.
